The Coast Guard Murders

"From the Wilderness of Kodiak Island Alaska visit visit murder and mystery in the last frontier. With your host Robin Airfield. In a land full of peril and vicious animals. Humans are the most dangerous editors of all the double homicide I describing this episode occurred on a secure coastguard base near the town of Kodiak Alaska on Kodiak Island approximately Lee sixty miles from where I live. This murder happened toward the end of the most brutal winter. Anyone on Kodiak can remember and when the police did not quickly apprehend the killer tempers flared and citizens carried firearms wherever they went our mail plane pilot reporting the news to us on his weekly stop compared the residents in town to a powder keg ready to blow when it was all over many in law enforcement and judicial system praised the investigation but at the time it seemed as if no one was doing anything going to look for and apprehend the killer. Welcome to murder mystery in the last frontier. I'm your host Robin Airfield and I'm broadcasting from the heart. The Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge on Kodiak Island in Alaska cold and miserable described the winter of two thousand eleven two thousand twelve it was one of the harshest winters on record in Alaska. On Kodiak island the temperatures January averaged nine point one degrees. He's colder than normal for the period extending from October. Two thousand eleven through may two thousand twelve. The temperatures dipped four point point seven degrees below average. Those temperature differences might not sound extreme. But I assure you it was a cold miserable winter. Our water lines frozen early December which is not uncommon but usually when the lines freeze we can pump water through a hose into holding containers in the House House. And when it's too cold to use the pump. We can haul buckets of water to our house in January two thousand twelve. Oh the brutal cold completely. Froze the stream where we get our water that had never happened before. Finding and collecting water became a Chore Consuming. Most of our days but worse than finding water are septic tank froze and a frozen septic tank is not a good thing in the town of Kodiak. The ground froze nearly Lee six feet or two meters deep down to where the water lines are. Buried the frigid temperatures made life difficult and in addition to being cold Kodiak snowfall during the winter of two thousand twelve major two hundred twelve percent above normal instead of the average sixty sixty eight point nine inches or one hundred seventy five centimetres Kodiak received one hundred and forty five point nine inches or three two hundred and seventy point five nine centimeters of snow by the end of the winter people were cranky and on edge the US coastguard base on Kodiak Island established establishment's nineteen seventy two is the largest coastguard base in the United States. The Bay supports approximately one thousand active duty thirty members seventeen hundred family members and several hundred civilian employees. Many of whom have retired from active duty with the coastguard. Not only is the coastguard an important employer in the community. But it is often the lifeline for one of the largest fishing fleets in the country. Sorry the coastguard base on Kodiak is responsible for covering nearly four million square miles of the roughest oceans and most inhospitable unhospitable terrain in the world when a fishing boat takes on water in heavy seas or a fisherman receives a head injury from swinging crackpot the coastguard speeds to the scene to offer assistance. We are not commercial fisherman but we live in the wilderness and know of we suffer a life threatening the injury or experience a medical emergency we can call the coastguard for help the residents of Kodiak respect and welcome the coastguard as an important asset to our island community and on those rare occasions when a coast guardsman or woman die during a daring rescue. We we mourn those who gave their lives to protect us the two thousand twelve double murders the coastguards communication station shocked and saddened the residents students of Kodiak. It is tragic but understandable when a guardsman dies during a high risk rescue attempt but a double murder made no sense the US coastguard base is located six miles south of the town of Kodiak via the Kenya highway the US coastguard. Communication in station is not located on the main base but it is a small installation on the other side of the highway down a side road. The turn off to the side road is about one mile north of the main base. The Kodiak Airport and the Comfort Inn are also important to the story and and they sit on the same side of the highway as the main base and are located between the main base and the road leading to the communication station among other duties guardsmen and women working at the communication station track aircraft receive and relay messages from two two ships in distress and transmit weather reports. The two thousand twelve murders occur in the rigor shop next to the communication station and those working in the rigor shop are responsible for servicing and repairing the approximately forty antennas for the Coast Guard communication stations nations across Alaska. It is important to note the while the main base is closely guarded and the communication station is located behind a secure offense. The rigor shop is strangely unguarded on April twelfth. Two thousand twelve meteorologists predicted the temperature. On Kodiak Jack would soar to fifty degrees and if it did. The residents of the island would enjoy the warmest day since October spirits. Lifted in Kodiak with this promise of spring but the upbeat moods didn't last long around eight thirty that morning being rumors spread through town indicating someone had been murdered at the coastguard base when the rumors became more specific and the whispers. I suggested the shooting happened. At the rigor shop. The families of the small crew of men who work there waited in dread soon. Those those rumors were confirmed not only had one man killed but two men were dead. Petty Officer First Class James Hopkins uh-huh Forty One and civilian employees Richard Belly. Fifty one had each been shot multiple times and had died in the rigor shop their bodies discovered around eight. A M by fellow employees. Richard Belle isle had served in the Coast Guard for twenty three years and had retired as a chief boatswain's mate before returning to the Coast Guard to work as a civilian Belle Isle Hopkins and a fellow civilian employees. James Wells were scheduled to begin their shifts at seven that morning. Wells had left to phone messages claiming claiming he would be late for work because he had a flat tire. He did not report for duty until after the bodies were discovered residents of Kodiak. The AC responded to the shootings with rage and fear. Rich Belle isle. A well liked member of the community. Had many friends rich was married and had three daughters. James Hopkins was married and had a son and daughter the only other murder of a guardsman on a base in the US. US occurred in two thousand one. On Saint Paul Island Alaska a tiny island in the bering sea the guardsmen shot in that incident and was reportedly having an affair with the shooter's wife the US coastguard is attached to the Department of Homeland Security and since the murders occurred word on a US coastguard base the FBI immediately assumed control of the investigation. The Alaska State troopers aided the FBI. The I in their inquiries the F. B. I. Chose not to relate any information to the public about the progress of the investigation and when they did not immediately arrest a suspect for the murders their silence angered many Kodiak residents and created an atmosphere of fear and distrust in a community whose nerves were already stretched to the breaking point by the harsh unrelenting winter. Fbi I spokesman Eric Gonzalez issued a statement saying nothing in this investigation has led the FBI to believe that anyone is in danger danger while he said the residents of Kodiak were not in danger from the unknown killer he did not bother to explain how the FBI knew this or or what the FBI was doing to apprehend the killer the FBI simply expected the residents of Kodiak to trust them but nothing the FBI. Be I did earn the residents respect or trust instead. People carried weapons looked over their shoulders and listen to rumors. Here's the day after the murders. US Secretary of Homeland Security. Janet Napolitano made a statement saying her department placed East. I high priority on solving this crime and bringing the perpetrator to justice. She said she had directed the full resources of her. Our Department to support the investigation of these murders on April twenty third the FBI issued a news release describing two vehicles goals and asking residents to come forward if they had information concerning the whereabouts of these vehicles on April Twelfth and thirteenth breath residents were quick to note the descriptions of the cars matched those owned by James Michael Wells the other civilian Villian employees. Who was supposed to been at his post at the rigor shop at the time of the murders wells claimed? He was late for work that morning because he'd had a flat flat tire. James Wells and his wife. Nancy lived in Bell's flats a small community about ten miles from the town of Kodiak and a few miles down the chimney at highway south of the coastguard base while the FBI volunteered. No Information and residents inferred much by their actions they knew the FBI had searched the house of James and Nancy Wells. After the shootings and the wells vehicles Hickel's had been towed away but then returned to them residents especially those in bells flats where murder victim rich Bell L. had lived and his is co worker. James Wells delivered knew that both men were retired from the coast guard and up until the murders. They had worked together as civilian employees in the rigor shop. Rumors circulated about animosity between Wells Belle isle and Hopkins Wells. who had worked? The rigor shop for twenty years had been disciplined several times in recent months and he seemed to blame Belle isle and Hopkins for his problems. Residents believed wells was the obvious suspect in the murders but authorities refused to name him or arrest him instead as the local newspaper the paper. The Kodiak Mirror reported two F. B. I.. Agents sat in a car across the road from the Wells House and watch the house around the clock on May first nearly three weeks after the murders. The coastguard made a request on facebook for community a deep volunteers especially those with metal detectors to help search the area around the rigor shop the FBI said the search was related. They did to the murders but they did. Not Tell the searchers what they were hoping to find residents recalled Napolitano promising to deploy the full full resources of the Department of Homeland Security to investigate this crime now though it seemed instead of help from a huge government agency the Coast Guard and FBI were asking citizens to bring their personal metal detectors to search for something near the crime scene residents began to wonder if Homeland Security and FBI agents knew what they were doing and if they didn't where the citizens truly safe or or in danger from an unknown killer who had already murdered two men residents believed the purpose of the search was to look for the gun used used in the murders and when one hundred residents showed up to search everyone hoped the weapon would be found and an arrest would finally be made. Unfortunately no weapon was found that day and if anyone discovered anything of interest the FBI did not report the fine to the community entity agents reviewed the books of the gun shops on the island. But again they did not reveal what they found. The investigation dragged on for for several months. And still no arrest was made the residents of bells flats became more and more convinced that James Wells els had murdered his co workers and wells still lived and moved about their community making everyone nervous as well as angry and frustrated rated with the slow progress of the investigation finally on February fifteenth. Two thousand thirteen ten months after the murders orders authorities arrested James Michael Wells and charged him with two counts of first degree murder. Two counts of murder of an officer or employee of the United States and two counts of possession and use of a firearm in relation to a crime of violence. Violence Wells pleaded not guilty at wells February nineteenth and Raymond. FBI special agent. Elizabeth Oberlander portrayed for Trade James Wells as a sub-standard coastguard civilian employee who had feuded with his co workers and Supervisors Hopkins. The enlisted guardsmen was in charge of the rigor shop but wells refused to take orders from him. Wells failed to follow regulations and guidelines and at one point he sabotage several trees at the station so he could cut them down and use them for firewood at his home. In December. Two two thousand eleven. A supervisor told wells he needed to shape up or retire a month later the same supervisor told wells he he would not be sending him to the National Conference for Tower Erector. A conference wells usually attended instead the supervisor plan to send Belle Isle and Hopkins to the Conference Belle Isle. An Hopkins were murdered less than three months later. overlander Admitted there were no eyewitnesses to the murder and no murder weapon had been found. But she said enough circumstantial evidence existed to to provide probable cause that James Michael Wells willfully deliberately maliciously and with premeditation killed Hopkins and Belial the trial of James. Michael Wells took place in April. Two thousand fourteen at the US District Court in in Anchorage. The jurors were selected from around the region and the trial lasted twenty days. First responders testified that when they arrived at the murder scene they saw no evidence of a break in or robbery at the rigor station and they said both men appeared to be victims of targeted killing killing. US Attorney. Karen Leffler the lead prosecutor in the case played tapes of two interviews with wells conducted by FBI FBI agent Kirk overlander shortly following the murders in the first interview. Well said he started to drive to work for his seven. AM shift the rigor shop but detected a soft tire and pulled into the parking lot of a comfort inn. Near the Kodiak Airport. He check check. The tire saw Nalen it and returned home to change the tire. What wells did not know? was that a security camera on the main engage. The coastguard station recorded his truck heading toward the rigor shop at six. Forty eight A. M. and returning in the Opposite Direction Tortoise home at seven twenty two a m at time lapse of thirty four minutes wells claimed he drove toward toward the rigor shop felt a soft tire pulled into the hotel parking lot and immediately headed back home to change the tire in the second interview. Agent overlander told wells that he drove the same route wells claimed he followed and the trip took him only ten minutes he then asked wells why it took him thirty four minutes to stop check his tire and turn around to drive home. Well stated dated. I don't have a reasonable explanation for it. I don't have a theory. At the moment. At trial. Wells defense attorney stated well suffered from chronic chronic diarrhea as the result of a reason gall bladder surgery and after checking his tire on the morning of the murders he drove to the airport to use. Use the bathroom at a commuter airline. The prosecution provided evidence showing no one at the airline remembered seeing wells and if this was wells as explanation for the thirty four minute time lapse. Why didn't he tell this to the FBI when they first interviewed him the FBI learn? James Wells is wife. Nancy was an anchorage during the murders and she left her blue. SUV parked in the Kodiak airport. Parking lot during her absence. James Wells drove a white truck to work on the morning of the murders. A blurry video taken by a camera near the rear of the rigor shop showed a blue. Suv arriving at the shop just before the murders occurred. No one reported seeing the blue SUV. Either they're on the road or parked at the communication station but that one blurry video is proof. It was their F. B. I.. Agents believe James Wells left home in his white pickup truck drove to the airport parked switched to his wife's SUV and drove to the rigor shop. He then shot Belle isle in Hopkins to death. Return to the airport left his wife's Suv there and then drove home in his white truck. During this time period he made two calls to work to report had a flat tire and would be a few minutes late arriving for his shift to support its argument. The prosecution played the two videos one from the gate at the main base and the other from the camera outside The rigor shop attorney said when Wells' wife returned from Anchorage. She told detectives her car had been moved while she was gone. An expert are to examine the flat tire with the nail in its stated the nail had been shot into the tire with a nail gun not picked up by driving over it on the road. As as well as claimed according to the witness the tire was not driven on after the nail was embedded in it finally while investigators never found the murder weapon. They determined a forty four caliber. Gun had been used in the shootings and they found forty four caliber ammunition and James Wells' wells' House a witness testified. Wells borrowed a forty four caliber handgun from him several years earlier and had never returned it after a ten month. Investigation and a twenty day trial with over one hundred. Witnesses called to testify testify. A jury of six women and six men deliberated only six hours. Before Finding James Michael Wells guilty on all six counts of the indictment. The judge sentence wells to four consecutive life sentences to for killing James Hopkins and Richard Richard Bell Lyle and two more for using a firearm in a violent crime. After being sentence well spoke briefly. He maintained his his innocence and claimed a tragedy occurred and said quote. We have all suffered for it. Nancy Wells did by her husband has been throughout the trial and even after he was convicted and sentenced she continued to say she believed him innocent of the crime the judge in the case condemned. MD Wells for allowing his family to believe he was innocent when he knew better. Nancy Wells simply shook her head after this comment after the trial ended. US Attorney Karen Leffler the lead prosecutor praised investigators and her legal team. She said this. This was a long road to justice for the families of Richard Bell. Lyle and James Hopkins the United States Coast Guard community and the citizens. Sins of Kodiak the guilty verdicts were the result of the superb investigative effort of the FBI and Coast Guard Investigative Service. And I am very proud of the work of the members of the United States Attorney's Office for the district of Alaska and our special assistant. US Attorney Ernie from the US coastguard. Judge Advocate General. We are very pleased that the lengthy and meticulous investigation of this brutal crime has resulted in the conviction of the person responsible attorney. Leffler had a right to be proud of the conviction of James Wells. With only circumstantial angel evidence. There were no witnesses and no weapon was ever found but she and her associates presented such a compelling case. The jury returned earned a guilty verdict in only six hours. It is unfortunate though that the FBI and the other investigators in this case were not able either to arrest well sooner or release enough information to the Kodiak community to calm people's fears and assure the residents the investigation was moving forward. I don't think the FBI. I needed to maintain a news blackout throughout the investigation. And I'm not sure they understand. Even now what a told their silence took on the community and especially on the victims families at the sentencing. Hearing Tearing Rich Bell's wife Nicola said she lived in fear for more than ten months while her husband's killer remained free and she said more than once. She huddled in her house with a loaded firearm because her dogs barked at something outside the House maybe me if authorities had released more information or arrested well sooner. Nicola Belle isle would not have suffered the double insult of losing using her husband and her security in August Two Thousand Sixteen Nicola Belle Isle and James Hopkins Widow. Deborah filed a suit suit against the United States of America for the wrongful deaths of their husbands. They asked for one million dollars each. They alleged that that the US coastguard knew or should have known. James Wells was a dangerous disgruntled employees with several reprimands and disciplinary Mary sanctions and he posed a serious threat to other employees. It seemed as if the winter of two thousand twelve would never end on May thirteenth two point. Four inches of snow fell on island and then finally temperatures begin to rise most of the winters since two thousand twelve have been unseasonably warm and now those few brutal months remain a distant memory the lies of the Kodiak residents returned to normal after James Wells was convicted and sent to prison unfortunately though the saga of James swells continued in two thousand seventeen when the ninth. US Circuit Court of Appeals overturned wells conviction and ordered a new trial. The court cited several problems with the original trial but their biggest concern was the testimony by forensic psychologist they. I believed this testimony should not have been allowed at trial. The next offer James Wells took place in Anchorage on October eighth. Two Thousand Nineteen and the jury again found wells guilty on all counts.

It's an campaigns that we support and it's a major distraction for everybody so give me just a few minutes to break down all right. Let's break it down the. I don't want to tell you about the seven people who came together to actually produce this report. We have to make a mallory who is co-chair of the women's march and co-founder of justice league n._y._c. We have becky bond who is one of the most skilled respected organizers in the country. Sorry she's a partner at the social practice but she's also a former staffer bernie sanders and better rourke and just does amazing work and has impeccable integrity tiffany hawkins alan boomer were to financial experts that we brought onto the team they work for a company called momentum advisers and i provided them at their request with full access to all of our checking. I'm talking about our personal. Checking savings investment investment accounts credit cards user names passwords money-management software and they have unlimited access to all of that information that goes back more more than ten years also rob smith who was a brilliant civil rights attorney. He's an executive for the justice collaborative and david metron who is an expert attorney in the issue of compliance for political organizations ngos and david also is one of the primary authors of our f. e. c. reports he is an attorney for san lary which is one of the most respected <hes> law firms in the country and lee merritt who is a civil rights attorney and who i partnered with on nearly twenty different fundraisers for families and also we had the support of a c._p._a. And tax attorney that's a certified public accountant and tax attorney richard bell and it was actually richard's idea but i provide the team and i provided the entire team with five four years. The past five years of our tax returns those are joint returns that are i five with my wife and not just a statement or the front page or anything like that but we provided the entire team. The past five years of our tax returns turns from two thousand fourteen until now twenty thirteen until now actually and <hes> they full access to all of those things and it was their job to begin taking a deep dive into all of that data. I also introduced them to every family. I've ever worked worked with every attorney i've ever worked with every campaign calls and charity that i've ever worked with i introduced them to all of them and then got out of the way for them to engage interview every family as they wished without my presence and the job of that at seven person team was to go through years and years and years of data and information and <unk> out of that to produce a report on all of the fundraising that i have done for families charities or causes and campaigns for people in distress and in crisis their job was to produce an unflinching unfettered report on what they found and i want to explain everything that's in that report now but again and i'll double down on this when you get a moment even if you have to click out of the podcasts click out of go to shaun king fundraising report dot com and check it out for yourself. It may be even better if you look at it on a computer but you can see it from your phone as it. It's a mobile double version. You can see the photos the letters the testimonials and all of the records that we're discussing now but i'd love you to check it out in then listen to him about the tel you all right go on go to shaun king fundraising report dot com all right. Take a break it down. Pat breaks down down forget to break it down down. This report was amazingly difficult to put together. It literally required meet cancel. Almost everything i've done over the past ten days as you may have noticed we missed multiple episodes of podcast which we've never done before you're in on several days me and this entire team literally working fourteen sixteen hours a day just on this report and it's just so much information and when people say where the hell's the report i mean clearly must nobody. Oh body produces these types of reports but the thing that was the most difficult about getting the report is. I didn't actually manage any of these fundraisers. They were always just links that families sent me the causes and charities and campaign sent me that i never even had access to and and so tracking down each campaign scrubbing through hundreds of thousands of social media posts and emails we found nearly a hundred different fundraisers that i had supported directly in one way or another and since we first published this report every few hours someone sends us another one and another one. I did not mean to sound like d._j. College alad right there but every time we think we have finally found every fundraiser that i've ever supported somebody reminds us of something that that i i shared a on instagram or something that i shared an e mail that we couldn't find because we're searching through with certain search terms term so say we search all of my emails for go fund me but there are some that we didn't use go fund me with families set it up sometimes on you caring caring <hes> or launch good or <hes> some other site that we didn't remember using but again we we didn't set the fundraisers up days were just links that people sent me and so it was amazingly laborious and time consuming i to just this compile every fundraiser and to get all of the data for every fundraiser and we tracked all the fundraisers that i've ever promoted and began the process which was painful of reaching out to every particularly every family that that i've ever supported many of these families and these phone calls were difficult in ways that people have no thought of many of these family only suffered unspeakable violence not just police brutality and white supremacy. Many of them experienced personal tragedy. There was a a 'cause that's listed there the report of a of a mother who lost her mother and her infant child in a house fire and some we're reaching out to this woman who lost her mother and baby and we're reaching out to her to say hey we shared your fundraiser a a lot and helped you raise fifty thousand dollars but now we need a statement from you that shaun king never had that money like it's it's kind of a ridiculous silas process but we did it and it was it was a very painful process for people because normally when i'm asked to share a fundraiser acer it's at somebody's lowest point in their life and what we're having asked them is to go back to that point and now dig into the financial decisions and who had access and for a lot of people found it was very difficult and it was difficult for me we obtain statements now from nearly fifty different families attorneys and executives across nearly a hundred different fundraisers and there were several old fundraising pages that were completely closed down and in those cases we had to reach out directly to the fundraising platform a second in this is a bit nerdy. We we provided a full accounting of the real justice pack. That's the political group that i was a co founder of that helps. Let new district attorney's across the country and we filed full thorough f. e. c. reports every quarter. We're required to do that and we have filed them now for going on three years but we provided provided access to all of those f. e. c. reports they're available publicly already but we provided direct access to those and a direct overview of the funds that i've race as for the action pack and our first campaign with the action pack is our flip the senate campaign and we provided full access to all of those funds and statements admits not only from the attorneys but becky bond. Who is the executive director known senior leadership team of those packs that i'm not even paid for the work that did i do with flip. The senate or action packed we have over a dozen different paid staffers and consultants and i'm not one of them. We've been provided my salary for real justice which is four thousand one hundred sixty six dollars a month. I'm not the highest paid person even four real justice. I'm a co founder and a huge promoter and fundraiser for that 'cause but i'm not even close to the highest paid staffer there and <hes> i don't mean many of you earn about fifty thousand dollars a year with real justice and that's without benefits and <hes> for some some of you. Maybe that sounds like a whole lot of money and maybe you make less than that and i get that but in new york it's not it's not a lot of money at all. That's pre-tax four thousand one six six dollars a month with no benefits and you know i lose about half of that in taxes here in new york doc and <hes> and we work hard to elect district attorney's across the country so we put my salary out there and that's the literally the only salary that i get from <hes> any of the work organizing fundraising or advocacy that i'm doing on behalf of families now. I was a bit floored when the c._p._a. Asks for the past five years of my tax returns and you know. I think that's become very politicized. Clearly donald trump trump has not provided any of his tax returns and and presumably never will <hes>. I think virtually every democrat running for president has done so now and i i did it. I provided the past five fold tax returns and not just the first few pages but the entire returns. It's just invasive yousef like there's nothing to hide there but i was surprised even myself how weird it felt to send and to a team of seven people i know them and trust them in respect them but your tax returns are normally so private in your income coming in filings and charitable donations and things like that are normally so private that <hes> it was just a new thing for me to send that to the team and <hes> we sent in my wife file our taxes jointly and we sent in <hes> the past five years of our full tax returns and then lastly ashley and we did this in part in case. Anybody said we'll <hes> if sean was a being fraudulent again i have to to remind people the things i'm being accused of of raising money for families but actually keeping that money for myself in one way or another which has never happened not a single a a single penny single dime. That's a crime if i did that once i would be committing multiple federal crimes but just in case as people say well. I don't trust the tax returns. I provided a tiffany and alan of momentum advisors full access to to all of our checking accounts all of our savings accounts all of our credit cards all of our retirement accounts all of the money management software and i mean not only just <unk> statements but the actual user names and passwords every account that we've had for the past ten years and it actually goes back beyond ten years anthony hopkins and allen boomer are industry-leading financial advisers and they had full access to that in looked over every nickel in diamond that we've brought in and that has gone out and all of that is included in the report and then lastly multiple members of that at seven person review team were given full access user names and passwords to my twitter account to my facebook and all of my social media accounts so that they could see messages and activity and everything going back to to the founding of each of those accounts and all of that data all of the reports all of that including interviews that were done with dozens and dozens of families all of that was was built into a seventy two page report of my financing in fundraising over the past five years of the black lives asmat movement and i'm proud of it.

We're close with just this action. Step in one final word. Take take action. I think the thing that has disturbed me. The most is this part of this. This is included in the report is all the way back in twenty fourteen. I when eric garner died and then john crawford and mike brown i started raising funds for the family of my brown right away and something really weird started to happen of course right away. I started being called. Racial slurs started getting death threats. I have a whole chapter my book where i talk about some of the horrible moments that happened in those weeks where the death threats started the poor in. I'd never experienced experienced it like that. Somebody started lying and saying that i was stealing money from the family of eric garner and at the time the garner family didn't even have fundraiser and then even after they had a fundraiser i didn't share it and i was so thrown off by that and so was erica garner the daughter of eric garner who since passed away but eric and i became friends over that lie and i realized then like oh people are literally not fighting fair here like this is ugly but it was primarily white supremacist controls and then a few months later it became ultra conservatives and then a few months later became mainstream republicans but then a year later it became white liberals and then a few years later it became black folk and all of a sudden everybody ranging being from white supremacists to everyday black folk and everybody in between were saying chongqing stealing from these families families but the live first emerged from white supremacists. They did it with tamir rice. They did it again with mike brown. They did it with fundraiser after fundraiser and what started happening was weird. It just started being picked up first by what appeared to be fake black accounts and then started being re tweeted by actual black accounts with through that whole thing not one single family ever would say did say has said will say that i ever touched processed had access to do the funds that we raise for them but it just kept getting shared shared unshared and so today we have an action step for you and i really do need your support with this.

Monster Presents INSOMNIAC <music>. I'm Scott Benjamin everything about to tell you is real. This is INSOMNIAC <music> on July second nineteen ninety six a Canadian trooper cautiously approached the driver of a vehicle parked under fridge. The man behind the wheel was asleep and when asked he claimed he was a tourist just stopping for some rest as the trooper talked with the American traveler she noted that the back seat awesome luggage and a large stack videotapes however since there was really no cause for alarm the two parted ways the truth was the tourist had been living out of his car for several days at this point the very next day on July Third Nineteen ninety-six that same American visitor was in Piney Provincial Park in Grand Bend Ontario Canada. The stack of videotapes in the backseat was now nowhere to be found and next to him was rambling three page handwritten letter on yellow note paper stating that his marriage was failing his business was failing at he was sorry for messing up the park after all he had planned to do this somewhere else. He finished his long note with the line that he simply wanted to eat a peanut butter sandwich his favorite snack and then go to sleep with that he pulled out a three fifty seven magnum and shot himself in the forehead by the time his body was discovered later that evening by some campers he had been missing gene for eight days. What really brought this man four hundred miles miss comfortable mid Western home and why did he feel the need to end it also abruptly with a bullet to the brain? Was It really the pressures as of a failed marriage and business or was there something more sinister to the story as it turns out. There was a lot more in fact the dark truth was only beginning to be unearthed in his hometown of Westfield Indiana Indiana just one day before his death and people in the small town. We're already beginning to talk. Also most killers aren't very open about their murdering ways and that's with good reason but that presents a problem for the killer while secrecy is absolutely necessary a lot of killers find they need to share what they've done. They feel the need to brag and receive recognition. They think they deserve for the depraved acts. Of course that's dangerous for the killer. Tell the wrong person and you'll end up in prison for life life or receiving a death sentence. You'RE GONNA learn how the I seventy strangler found a way around this dilemma how he found a way to share his terrible secret with an entire group of on lookers and he knew that none of them would ever. report him to the police. How could he be so sure of their loyalty? We'll answer that question along the way to begin our story. We have to start almost exactly twenty five years ago in a city he known as the crossroads of America Indianapolis Indiana by the mid nineteen nineties. The Indianapolis police in the Marion County Sheriff's department knew they had a problem gay men from the area surrounding Indianapolis all matching a similar physical description age height and weight were disappearing ten ten had disappeared in the previous two years beginning in the spring of nineteen ninety three but the problem wasn't exactly new to the authorities either from nineteen eighty nine to the mid nineteen nineties the discarded dead bodies of men were being found in the rural areas along the corridor of interstate seventy between Indianapolis Indiana and Columbus Ohio. All of them had been strangled to death at the time the investigators investigators couldn't piece it all together. There were no witnesses and there just wasn't enough usable evidence left behind the only known connection was missing men's ties to the gay community a lot of them were taken on their way to who are on their way home from these gay nightclubs but now in the fall of nineteen ninety four things were about to change following a tip from an informant informant one that wanted to remain anonymous the hunt for another man someone known as Brian Smart was on according to the informant he was at one of India's gay nightclubs and I saw another man who is overly interested in a missing person's poster that had been tacked on the club's wall the poster featured a photo of the informants friend Roger Good let goodly had gone missing in July of nineteen ninety four intrigued and more than a little suspicious of the stranger. The informant introduced himself to the man he said his name was brands smart and he was a landscaper from Ohio. The informant tried to get smart talk more about the missing Goodlettsville but every time he mentioned the missing man smart became invasive and change the subject as the night were on smart became emboldened and invited his new friend for a late night swim limit the house. He said he was temporarily living in the man noted that smart was driving a grey Buick with Ohio license plates. Since the former wasn't familiar with the area north of Indianapolis. He didn't know exactly exactly where the house was located but he was able to describe where they ended up that evening. It was an area surrounded by big homes long Split Rail Fences and horse ranches the house they drove who was a large tudor style home and the pair entered from a side door. He noticed that the interior was crowded with dust covered furniture and boxes as they made their way through the house then down some stairs to the bar an indoor Apu area smart offered his guests drink that he had prepared himself but the informant wisely refused it smart then excused himself and when he returned he was a lot got more talkative than before informed suspected that smart had just snorted some cocaine he knew enough about the drug to notice the telltale behavioral changes at produced soon smart brought up the topic of auto erotic fixation. That's when someone receives pleasure from suffocation or being choked either during intercourse or masturbation often to the edge of death smart. I asked the informant to strangle him. I anyone along with it. He choke smart with a pool hoes will he masturbated and passed out after smart revived claiming sexual rush like no other it was the informants turn it was at this point smart began choking with the pool hose but when was clear that he wasn't going to stop the informant pretended to pass out and smart released him. When the informant finally opened his eyes smart appeared rattled and he claimed he was scared because the man had lost consciousness the truth was smart didn't expect his late night pool guests has to wake up at all and that's what spooked him it was apparent that smart had done this before and the man said that his hands were strong and confident around his neck as he strangled into the edge of death breath when they had finished their poolside fun? The pair collected themselves in smart drove the man back to Indianapolis where they agreed to meet up again the following week informant felt melted smarts deviant behavior in the pool that evening might explain what happened to his missing friend Roger Goodell it he called to tell the authorities about a suspicion however that following week at the time and place they agreed need to meet smart never showed and for a while he remained two ghost. Oh and one more creepy detail shared by the informant about the large house somewhere north of Indianapolis there were mannequins all over the place and in different postures including lounging around the pool area. They were well-dressed almost as if they were attending an upscale pool party when asked about the mannequins smart reply that the owner of the House didn't want to be lonely. He kept them around for company so you probably know that Marie Antoinette never sat let them eat cake but here's something she did say as she was led to the Guillotine. marie-antoinette Antoinette accidentally stepped on her executioners her final words were. I'm sorry I didn't mean to do it. I'm Danish words and I'm the host of noble blood a new podcast from iheartradio and Aaron mink each episode focuses on the single story from the life of one of history's most fascinating royds for Marie Antoinette during the final days to the Baronet lost at sea might have reappeared as Australian farm. The world is full of ill fated. I'd love affairs bad decisions family drama but for a monarch the personal determines the fate of nations and when you're wearing a crown mistakes tend to be deadly listening subscribe at Apple podcasts lists or on the iheartradio APP or wherever you listen to podcasts so why Manikins what's the fascination well is due to a condition called a goal Montovia which is the sexual attraction to a statue or a doll or mannequin or any other similar figurative object most often one that has a female form those that have this condition are sexualizing doll. The homeowner in today's case just happens to be sexualizing a group of life size dolls. If you know where to look examples of Gama to- feel you can be found in lots of places <music> it appears in the arts ONS belmore created and photographed life-size Fetish dolls in the nineteen thirties and the sexualize doll photography of German artist helmet. Newton is another example there instances of this novels in movies to dating much earlier. There's the Greek myth of big Malian a sculptor who fell in love with the statue had carved. If you're looking for modern examples those are easy to find to for instance Ronald Dotson aged thirty nine at the time was arrested in the city of Royal Oak Michigan in two thousand seven police spotted Dotson near smashed out storefront window that displayed a mannequin wearing a French maid outfit. This arrest came just a week after he was paroled for his sixth breaking and entering conviction over the course of thirteen years and not all datsuns crimes involve mannequins but a lot of them did one. One notable arrest in his past came after police found him in an alley behind a woman's clothing store with three mannequins. All were dressed in lingerie. This is clearly a man who has a sexual fetish for female mannequins and simply the can't control as urges even if that means breaking into a business to satisfy his needs for his crime in Royal Oak the judge gave doubts in a harsh sentence a year and a half in prison but that's likely because he was a repeat offender with many prior convictions and the judge reason that datsuns behavior even though he never really harmed another human struck fear in the community <music> with information and descriptions provided by the informant the police staked out the gay bars in Indianapolis interviewed bar patrons and posted fliers ears but they weren't able to locate anyone named Brian smart or anyone who fit the description and the killings continued finally a year later in the fall of nineteen ninety five. The police got another break. The informant had spotted Brian once again and this time he got the man's license plate mm-hmm the Indianapolis Police ranch check on the license plate number and the results appointed back to the car's owner Brian Smart was actually her bow meister a resident of the nearby suburb of Westfield Indiana Herbert Richard Bell Meister was born on April seventh nineteen forty seven in Indianapolis Indiana. He was the eldest child of Herbert and Elizabeth Bow Meister any lead a seemingly happy childhood but an adolescence he started developing antisocial behaviors. There were rumours of him urinating on a teacher's desk he started playing with dead animals and friends. Remember him speaking of wondering what it would be like to taste human urine secretly herbs father had him take psychological tests tests that indicated her was a schizophrenic and he had multiple personality disorder. The odd thing is that there's no record of her ever receiving treatment for either condition by nineteen sixty five Dr Herbert graduated high school and was accepted into Indiana University. He dropped out of college after just one semester and went to work as a copy boy for the Indianapolis Star newspaper return to you in the fall of nineteen sixty eighty seven and that's when he met his future wife Juliana or Julie as she preferred to be called in November of Nineteen seventy-one herb was twenty four years old and he and Julie were married in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighties the two had three children together two girls and a boy Marie Eric and then emily in nineteen seventy thirty two not long after his Julie her spent two months in a psychiatric hospital committed by his own father. Julia agreed with the decision saying her was tired and he needed help by nineteen seventy four herbert taken a job with the bureau of motor vehicles and was eventually promoted to program director. This success didn't last long however you as signs of his mental illness began to show and his position was finally terminated in the nineteen eighties when he urinated on a letter which was to be sent to then governor of Indiana Robert for the next several years weren't much better for herb either on September third nineteen eighty five herb now thirty eight committed a hit and run while intoxicated but there was no severe punishment the than less than one year later in March of nineteen eighty six herb was charged with auto theft and conspiracy to commit theft but he once again avoided punishment and somehow beat the charges against him. ooh that very same year. Herbs father died on the positive side herber taking a job at a local thrift store that inspired him and his wife Julie to start a business of their own in nineteen eighty eighty eight herbs mother Elizabeth Bow Meister loan him the money to open his own thrift store. The bow meisters called their new thrift store. Save a lot not to be confused with the chain of grocery stores to go buy a similar your name and it was initially successful earning the couple of small fortune in the first year alone. The pair soon opened a second location and things were beginning to look up for the young family. Uh Herb was a domineering business partner which Julia didn't like but tolerated and employees of save a lot notice that her would often disappear for several hours at a time right in the middle of the work day and he always returned smelling like alcohol despite Herbs Questionable Management Style by Nineteen Ninety one the small save a lot chain was successful enough to allow the bow meisters to buy a new home a much bigger home mm-hmm outside of the city somewhere with a lot of property and privacy where herb could conduct a different kind of business and twenty six million calls connected on the battlefields of Europe doesn't mean anything if you do not have an operator number four minutes thirty three seconds that changed the course music history. It's best understood fees and least understood the twenty eight thousand seconds or ten episodes of the podcast ephemeral are all available now listen to the full first season of ephemeral and subscribe on Apple Podcasts podcasts iheartradio wherever you listen to podcasts and learn more at a family show inherited a fascination with true crime for my father other members of our family would shake their heads in wonder why drawn such dark material but I always understood it's voyeurism a front row seat to view the thoughts and actions of monsters. They're victims their families and the authorities who haunt them now. It's my job to research these stories to the fullest extent to study them every day. Hey I know it sounds like a dream to some of you and I thought it would be too. I was wrong true. Crime isn't the escape that it once was for me. It's become the opposite making the show. What's unlock something inside of me something? I've kept a secret until now I have nightmares extremely realistic dreams the prevent me from sleeping sometimes for several nights in a row nightmares that are filled with monsters real life killers like the I seventy strangler these nightmares so vivid they distort originality learn the lines between waking and sleeping but the worst part is that sometimes the Masaru might nightmare is me when I wake up the whole day I avoid eye contact with everyone certain I'm guilty of something whore and they can somehow read it in my sleep deprived bloodshot eyes. I know these killers their stories and hoping that by sharing their cases I can take away the power that they have over me and get some much needed rest and I'm telling you my secret because I know I can't be the only person person who's struggling with us while researching his case I came across something highly unusual something I never really expected. And fairly rare among the ranks of serial killers somewhere to herb. I found a short video clip that shows what amounts to a chance encounter with a serial killer by local television station in Indianapolis. The new station was W Elias H T._v.. Channel Eight and the reporter interviewed her Bow Meister right at the height of his crimes. There's no indication in the video as to what year the interview took place but I haven't figured to be between Nineteen Ninety one and nineteen ninety four the background of the shot is clearly bow meisters property. There's no doubt it's his fields his driveway and his fence in fact you can match the location with crime scene photos taken at the property property years later. We'll play the audio for you in a moment but here's how all this came to be herb and his son were near the road just outside of the property and they witnessed a road striping crew passing by hi there also happen to be a dead raccoon on the road as a crew approached herbs said to his son. I think he's GonNa lay paint stripe right over that dead raccoon sure enough. The crew did just that apparently this angered herbs so much that he decided to take photographs of what he witnessed and share them with local news station to alert them to this wrongdoing. It's very strange strange interview. There's herb standing on the edge of his property wearing a suit and tie and looking exactly how you would imagine a successful small business owner might look in the early nineteen nineties. Nothing seems to be out of the ordinary Mary. He's relatively calm these amicable and even laughs a bit but at the same time he seems appalled at the callous treatment of this dead raccoon I find this extremely strange range. Listen to his interview and see if you agree bow meister of Carmo saw I said to my son they're gonna hit that where who this week gun and sure enough they just right over space didn't even but you have to get it out the way I have never poured right with me so I took a shot at the thanks a raccoon which met its demise on the yellow line became one with the pink. The raccoon has since been removed. This is all that's left. This was just email that finish that a chalk line on Rashes career by state officials it was no excuse for that thing deserted better faith in the poor thing deserved a better fate than that the question is this is herb really that upset about the treatment of dead raccoon whereas using this as an opportunity to try to blend in trying to appear a little more normal than the way he was perceived by everyone around him. was He attempting to pretend to be a normal functioning member of society. I guess we'll never know the answer. The Bow Meister family was ready to move into the new dream but the cracks were beginning to show and herbs secret. Life couldn't stay secret for long Eric Herbs Son was about to make gruesome discovery in the woods something that should make Julie question everything she believed about her husband but she ignored it next time on INSOMNIAC.

x s dot com and all the info at i heart radio dot com this podcast cast started out as a deep dive into some of the cases entrusted me i've listened to read so much true crime over the years i didn't think this process would be any different but it is researching these stories to the fullest extent studying them every day in writing about them is a disturbing process and i started to lose sleep over it it all began with my dad and his fascination with these stories of real life crimes true crime books were always instill are on his christmas and birthday wish list or as my aunt sometimes called them is murder books other members of her family would just laugh and shake their heads and wonder why he was drawn to books about such dark material but i always understood it was a way to be a voyeur into world the few rarely see affreux seat view the thoughts and actions of the killer their victims their families and even authorities authorities is they work together side in an effort to bring them down occasionally get my hand on a few borrow books here and there some of my dad's favorite cities allow me to take off the shelf for a few weeks at a time they had doug you're pages and some handwritten handwritten notes in the margins or on the backside of the cover as if he was trained a piece the story together himself to solve the crime before he finished the last chapter but those books were enough to get me started in more than enough show me the fact there's almost always more interesting than fiction thirty years ago i never dreamed up be doing what i am now those true crime books would be something much more tomatoes and just relaxing way to pass the time when a plane or well poolside on vacation now reno's books is become part of my daily work i know it sounds like a dream the some of you and i thought it might be too but i wouldn't necessarily call it entertain any more more fun or relaxing in any way i suppose that's what happens when you're hobby and you're leader activity becomes you're work you're obsession but it's not just the animals pages of detailed horrific crimes it keeps me awake at night there's something more this obsession is let me not a darker path one let i don't wanna be on anymore rating true crime is not escape it once was her me in fact it's become the opposite and i just want it to end the good news is it i do see a way out i could be wrong but i feel if i used the series is a weighted talk through this way to work out some of these demons i might be able to get to the other side and i ended up in a better place place the material were going to cover is going to be dark in the journey is gonna be difficult but it's something i have to do i keep moving forward for now anyway well research in this case i came across something highly unusual something i never really expected in fairly rare among the ranks of serial killers similar her i found a short video clip the shows what amounts to a chance encounter with a serial killer by local television station in indianapolis the new station with wi sh tv channel eight in the reporter interviewed her bell meister right at the height of his crimes there's no indication in the video as to what year they interview took place but i would figure to be between nineteen ninety one in nineteen ninety four the background of the shot is clearly boundless just property there's no doubt as to steal his driveway in a sense in fact you could mess location with crime scene photos taken the property years later will play the audio for you in a moment but here's how all of this came to be kurban his son were near the road just outside of the property and they witnessed a road strapping crew passing by they're also happened to be a dead raccoon on the road crew approached her said to his son i think he's gonna lead paint striper right over that dead raccoon sure enough the crew did just that apparently this angered hurts so much but he decided to take photographs of what he witnessed in share them with the local news station to looked into this wrong doing it's a very strange interview there's her standing on the edge of his property wearing a suit and tie in looking exactly how you would imagine a successful small business owner might look in the early nineteen nineties nothing seems to be out of the ordinary he's he's relatively calm museum evil and even less a bit but at the same time he seems appalled at the cows treatment of this dead raccoon i find this extremely strange listen news interview and see if you agree found strip karnal sorry i said to my son got i can't say that could win the way god and sure enough they just swipe right over me little bit you know everything you know get the other way never more right now i took a shot at the fact a raccoon which met its demise on the yellow line became one with the pain the raccoon has since been removed this is all that's why and that's why cfc though i had a charge by the way i just clarify state officials say there is no excuse for the asking what do you think of search fetter facing the worst thing deserved better feet and that the question is this is her really that upset about the treatment of a dead raccoon rosie using this is an opportunity to try to blend in trying to appear little more normal than the way he was perceived by everyone around it will be attempting to pretend to be a normal functioning members of society i guess we'll never know the answer the bell meister family is ready to move in the dream home but the cracks were beginning to show and her secret life couldn't stay secret furlong eric her son was about to make a gruesome discovery in the woods something that should make julie question everything she believed about her husband

"Then we're in business. That is awesome. That is a beautiful shirt thank you. You're welcome where are you? I'm in Toronto. I'm in my bedroom. Here's Greg Kolev. Second that we get him in here. Greg hates it what I wear shirts like that. So let's let's tease. Greg forbid here. Okay hold on correctly you there. Hey Greg Hi Greg. Nice areas are good. Thanks Greg what do you think of Steven Shirt? Yeah it's very cool shirt. Oh he was telling me that you'll like these so you don't like it when he wears them. I like it when I wear them. He wears you. Were being set up there my read. What the heck high the following podcast is brought to you by radical road brewery. The best craft beer in the heart of Leslie. Bill find him at eleven. Seventy seven Queen Street East. That's radical road brewery. Hi My name's Stephen. Fearing I am a Canadian musician. Songwriter and Bread Baker now and welcome to the music. Thanks for joining us. I've been you're the one 'cause I've been going to the local grocery store once a week looking for yeast. It's a question. I think it's easier asking that. I think it's your first issue. I'm not a baker but there's no more east no there is not Harris everybody everybody's making sour dough. That's why yeah so. I think that will apparently a few go on Amazon or any of those sites. You'll notice a distinct lack of bread making paraphernalia. Because it's all it's either ziggurats all sold. There's been this is like that and flour and east yes right. I'm wondering if I could trade toilet paper now. Some sort of barter deal. I figure I see the cartoon about that. Might that might work. Stephen where where we calling you at where are you? I'm in Victoria. The islands where my wife and daughter and I moved in two thousand fifteen and lucky us we managed a it was like an action movie. Where the big metal doors closing and we slide in underneath that was just getting into the real estate market before it went vertical. We were very lucky. Excellent and now. I'm counting my lucky stars like I can't believe that I get to sit this out here because it's a pretty place to be. Yeah what are you know we? We always asking him. And I'm sure you've told a million people the same answer but What are what are you doing to sort of? I guess past the time would have been up to these days. Well baking sour dough bread. But that's it's true but it's kind of a joke because I think everybody in their dog is doing that too Just you know it's like my wife and I moved here in. Twenty fifteen and the only way we could afford to buy in this market was to buy a seriously beat up. Hasn't had much love for a long long time a rooming house which were slowly bringing back to being a single family dwelling so there's an endless amount of jobs but I figured that if at the end of this if there is an end yeah do this whole thing. I I think we're all starting to realize that it's not going to be like somebody flicks a switch back on and hey we're back. It's going to be some version of what we recall but anyway Whenever that is I don't ever have to say again. Oh I'm so busy because I'm renovating my house. It'll be dude you had a year you do and so I'm I'm doing it. I'm getting all that stuff done as as much as I can. And you know ten thousand steps today you know just like I'm trying not dwell too much on the complete cessation of my career. Sure it's it's interesting. It's interesting too because like in terms of behaviors criminal. I've talked about before like it. It's interesting the changing behaviors of the people. You talk about getting the renovations done in the house where we normally host this face to face is in a POB. Leslie Dill Call Radical Road Brewery and and had to put out a notice today and I've never seen them do this before they're a microbrewery of of a macro breweries and put a notice today on Were sold out. We're going to have to shut down for two days to restock so interesting is like you know. I. I don't go to the beer store anymore. I'm just buying directly from my local micro Right is a change. I'm yeah yeah you think about that. And what do you think that's gonNA translate beyond this like I hope? So but what do you think? Yeah I really hope so too And I think that I I know that somewhere In many somewheres people are keeping track of data. Because if you ever wanted convincing arguments for things like A universal living wage. And all of these other things that have been you know. The sort of extreme radical laughed have been spouting about for a long time. Well we're living at right now and I. I just hope that people are keeping track of stuff like this because when this is all moved to the next phase. Let's say 'cause I don't think when it's all over is really the right way of looking at it but when we moved to the next significant phase of this. I really do hope that we all walk away with with with some valuable lessons as a one of my favorite writers is a a woman named Elizabeth Gilbert and. She wrote a book that I just love called big magic which is for any of the creatives out there. It's it's really worth reading. But I heard it being interviewed recently. And she said we've all had our collective souders pulled out of our mouths and now we have been deal with it without 'cause I'm a I love my job. I been onstage since I was. I Dunno eighteen nineteen and I love that aspect of it. I love the travel. I love all the parts of it and it's all gone and so how do you like suck it up? Buttercup move moving onto something else you know and maybe that maybe it comes back. Maybe a version of it comes back. I certainly hope so. I mean that's that's what I do but In the meantime you know you can't dislike swan about in your house code talking to a man who is sitting on his bed thank you but you know there's there's gotta be some things to come out of it and it's not lost on me that learning to sit still is that is that is interesting way to phrase that Are you know besides home renovations and making sour dough are are you are you? Writing is is. This sort of time is an introspective time for you. I'm curious about sort of your creative juices. What you're doing well not yet but I. I suspect that that will be the next sort of phasing made Because I think as it slowly sinks in at first you're like okay. I have had to cancel a show and then now I've cancelled a tour and Ma maybe most the summer's gone. Oh maybe I'm not gonNA work till next year so the slow realization of how this is going to be and and one of the things that I've been thinking about is when they do say okay. We're allowing them. Gatherings of over five hundred people are over. Two hundred and fifty people were allowing that to happen again. There's going to be the stampede of artists from from the local I play. You know the the wing joint down the road to Coldplay everybody's GonNa come hurtling out of the their cupboards going me me me over here and It's going to be it's going to really. We're all going to have to get creative. Because normally people release stuff staggered twelve months and some of US overly strategic like Independent artists tend to stay away from sort of December November December October November December. Because it's leading up to Christmas and the market is swamped with big big big artists. And so I tend to release in January February march when things are just starting to come around. Wake up again. But what's going to happen whenever this does happen? I suspect that there's going to be kind of like A. It's like a race or something. Where they you know the starter pistol and we all start running like Libya and some people have some people have of their releases right now until they release and support right so yeah it's just everything is so unknown and so so to answer your question. I do suspect that Even though I had just released an album and while with black kings and on my own. I suspect that I'm going to have to consider a another release somehow. Just be some starting something new again. I don't know one thing I was going to mention. Bring so when Kelly and I got together coming up on twenty years ago we were merging our CD racks mine was followed through fighters and Linkin Park and and Calloway's Keller's more on the Fokker side Roots decide remember looking at CD's going lackey. Roadking like I know the name but I and Stephen King. I know the names of Tom Wilson. But I didn't know the music and since then over twenty years. I had the pleasure to see you play with with Tom a numerous times as well as seeing you you personally a number of times with Jennifer and Kellyanne Conway and a few others at Hugh's room so you know we talk about. What's on the flip side? What do you? What do you think is on the flip side for live venues like that like? Is it going to be this? Deluge of live shows or. Are we going to scale up to scale down when you think? I know I know some of them aren't GonNa make it. And that's really heartbreaking because there was already had a dearth a lack of live venues so some venues aren't GonNa make it but I also don't know if I think there's going to be some artists who are just GonNa go. You know what I'm done like this was the last step for me because there's always people that are just barely making it so I do think that there's going to be a real hunger for for live music and I know that in the industry people are talking about live. Streams. And how are we doing ourselves a disservice or not by live streaming in terms of our people going to get used to this kind of a medium and personally I don't maybe a younger generation but my generation my demographic? I don't think that they're I think when the opportunity to go back to a live venue and sit in the dark drinking a beer with other people when that happens. I think everybody's GonNa WanNa do that really badly. I I know I I wanNA play to a live audience that I can see and all that stuff you know I just saw. Somebody sent post a thing of boy. I miss for really overpriced beer at concerts in his leg. Gap a live. The live concert thing it can't you can't just you can't replace it at all. I really don't believe can think that's GONNA come back. Yeah do you yourself. Outside of the Times there were now. Do you find yourself going to a lot of life shows. You enjoy that experience yourself as of you know. I don't actually do a hell of a lot because I was on stage so I mean this is really strange for me to. There's usually periods in my in my touring life where I might have two months where I'm not to Roau but not much It's usually I'm out for two or three weeks and I'm home for two weeks and then I'm out in out in. That's the way I really liked to do it. Occasionally for two months like if I'm going to Europe and then I'd come home And I might not be back out again for a month and a half. But after two or three months it starts like start to go a bit squirrelly. So normally I'm I'm I'm on the road so much that when I come home all I wanna do is be home but occasionally like if if somebody who really really want see comes through they'll make an effort to go see them and there's always the popping into venues to see friends when you're on the road but yeah it's it's a really different experience from actually usually see the most music in the summer when I'm at the festivals and then I can wander around see other people's sense you've put together you're starting this new series Weekly series called under the hood. Yeah tell me about that. What's what's that all about will. That was Jennifer's idea and We were sort of at I the impetus because the first thing I had to cancel was a a an album release in my hometown in Victoria. Oh asking a little It was right down to the wire and about Three days before the concert of four days they announced the the no gatherings over two hundred fifty and I was like okay. Well that's the end that because we're kind of waiting for definitive word from somebody And that was it. And so the first thing I did was I went up to Duncan Where the The Duncan showroom is and they've been broadcasting their live shows at tiny venue but they've been broadcasting with. I think four five. Usb cameras from that it can control from the back of the room so they've been broadcasting on youtube for years so I went up there and played into an empty dark room with my friend. Terry David Mulligan talking to me And and coming in like kind of zoom conference so he would ask me questions about the album and I would play songs. Now was the first thing and then it was like well. What do I knew after this? Show up every week and play a concert. Like that. Just seems weird. So we're we did a couple of those and then we were kind of cast. We did a by request and we did a covers one and then I thought I don't know if I wanNA keep doing this because I don't know how this is. I don't know where this goes. One of the things I mean haven't answered the question yet but I will promise I can talk on legs off a donkey but one of the things that that that people are talking about is the fact that if I'm on I find live streaming once a week. Let's say People who normally would only see knee play a show. Maybe every twelve months. If I'm lucky you know then come to see my show when I'm in Toronto and I don't go back to Toronto again for twelve months. So they saw me once maybe twice and they might see you over a period of five years. Maybe three four times Max. If they're hardcore fans and suddenly they're seeing every week you know it's kind of like it starts to is. You Never WanNa be predictable. And I believe in smoke and mirrors and I believe and the Glamour of performance and there is even even when it's just union acoustic guitar and a naked bulb in the crudest folk club you could ever think of like the dingy basement folk club in you. Name it Even so there's still a bit of magic. Yeah there's a there's a glamour to it and and I I miss that and so the idea with under the hood was to do something that I would never do. Live which is basically place on and talk about it for however long you know they some of them clocking for like an hour and a half. You have to be pretty hard core it. Like it's it's it's I don't WanNa hear me Jabbering on about my song and talking about why I wrote this image and rhyme schemes and all that stuff then this is not for you but if you do like that kind of thing and you're like my stuff then hopefully it's interesting but that's that was the idea so something that normally you would never see me do unless you unless. I was doing a songwriting workshop. Yeah but that was the idea. Just come up with something different. Yeah that's I I WANNA do a little bit of that now Okay because I read a I listened to. I listened to yellow jacket the other day. The song and I read a little bit. I I saw a quote somewhere that it was based on these energy drinks or something way off. Dogo you're very close their their little Truckers friends. You can buy them. They're legal. It's legal speed. It's basically it's like an energy drink in the pill so it's it's God knows whatever's in that stuff A lot of caffeine things like that. That's what yellow jackets are and they. They were marketed. So that they have like a council that's yellow and black and they're called jackets and you know they sting yet and you. You know you take two of those if you're driving for eighteen hours and you're like panned you know as you go down the highway. So that's where that started as crazy. I was this like an all the time thing as you're traveling across the country going from Gig to Gig Mill. This was. This was a one time deal and Tom. Wilson is responsible. Of course. Of course we were driving common. I were driving back from Nashville to. I was still living at the time. He lives in Hamilton. Obviously and we're driving back up and it's a fourteen hour drive so it's it's just long enough that you probably shouldn't do it in one shot but you know around our ten yet which is like most people can do a ten hour drive. And you're thinking God we're you know like I'm so close I'm not gonNA pull over now I'm GonNa keep going so you and anybody who goes back and forth. Lana musicians go back and forth from Toronto to National Day. Would this would be a regular occurrence. Do this drive in one shot. And it's just it's dull. It's the dullest ever not like driving through the mountains or even across the prairies. It's just sort of shorn cornfields and grey industrial building business sites. And just it's just really dull most of it not all of it. Some of the upstate. New York's but anyway we stopped at a truck Stop Wilson. Disappears COMES BACK WITH MYSTERY. Meat Sandwiches. Chocolate bars caffeinated water. Which is weird American thing kissing water caffeine and yellow jackets these little pill so he was at the counter went while have lows and so he as I'm driving. He opens one of them to see what it looks like. And it's like a kind of white gritty stuff. And so he's he basically says let's just divvy them up so we're giving these things up. Don't try this at home. Kids then and we then the chocolate bars and then drank the caffeinated water and basically started talking very quickly at the same time. Put the car in cruise control and just how many albums were written. We were listening to rough mixes of. I can't remember which album was but it it was one of the early records and Anyway there's a sort of the the the emotional the emotional toll that it takes on you when when it's over the the rush of caffeine it's heartbreaking. It's dislikes screeching brakes. It's like Wylie Coyote going off the cliff and going like this and then plummeting so That's we we've been sort of talking about this song and Al character named Yellow Jacket as we are driving and at one point. I look at Tom and I said how are you feeling? And he said. I'm feeling kind of emotional. S Larry because well if he tells the story he says it was because this sort of the the post caffeine rush was pretty intense and And so that's where the song was born and and driving through upstate. New York towns that are so hollow it out and bleak the downtown is dead and boarded up and everybody's living on the outskirts around the TGI. Fridays and the lows. And it's just like wow it's it's quite a so. I imagined his character and and Tom and I actually started writing the song together but he wanted me to sing the whole thing in a falsetto. And that's where we parted company. That's how how is that like for you because you work the blackened Ronan kings atomic call and you do your own stuff like what is the difference for you when it comes to songwriting between Rainier your own and Claverie. It's it's a well the writing your own collaborating his. You know it's when you're writing your own you sink or swim on your own. You know you make all the decisions and you can. You can chase your little You can chase your your rabbit down the rabbit pass at will when writing with somebody else. You may disagree on certain things. They may have the the bull by the horns in which case you back him up. It's it really depends. Who's hot that day and who's got a really strong idea. Sometimes Co writing is about just GonNa make a t and playing the same court progression over and over and over so that the other person can hear it So that's that's one of the big differences. But writing for Blackie as opposed to myself. I don't really differentiate I know call does I think Tom does. But both of those guys are I would say. There are a lot more prolific than me. I tend to write like the kings and king as King of this town. This the most recent black record I was under the impression that we were getting together to do some co writing. And then we're going to get together again and do some more co writing and then we're going to get together and maybe demo and it turns out that the First Co writing session was the only one and the next time we got together to record. So Oh i suddenly realized because what happens with the RODEO CASES. If you don't have enough material that's fine. Those guys both have loads of material always like. Oh you don't have any that's fine. We'll we'll just use one of mine and so you you better bring your songs and and there's a very usually a small window of time from When you hear about it till when it happened so I find myself sitting down you know hurriedly writing songs and it seems to work from me that way. It seems to be okay to just sit down go. I have to write a song today because I'm flying to Toronto tomorrow and I need something to put on the table and so I sit down and I start doodling and I get a song that seems to be my way of writing as opposed to the. It's nine o'clock in the morning. I'M GONNA go to my desk and sit down and write which allow a lot of people do it. So it's it's whatever I get is what I bring to the table and it's only a couple of times where the band has said You know or nobody ever says no but you can kind of get a sense that they're not really got interested in the song but that only happens occasionally and everybody's like sorry. No I was GONNA say so. It sounds like again. I've seen the ban live. It's a ban but it the way you describe it having been in a band myself with damage for like an extended period of time on non like it sounds like an. I don't I don't mean to downplay this but like a project like you're bringing your your pieces to the project for the band versus like living together constantly fighting in hammering it. I would fight it out but I don't know it is. It is different. It's it's really. It's hard to put your finger on it because it's definitely much more much more intimate than a project but it's not the sole thing that we do and so. I know that if Well this is a good example this this sort of locked down that we're all in. I'm not on the phone talking to my bandmates. Every day. In fact I might not speak to them for two months. But they're always in the back of my head and I know that when the time comes it'll happen really fast whatever. It is Okay we're GONNA get together and we're gonNA play show so suddenly a week ahead or two weeks ahead. As soon as date is announced will start talking very quickly. Buccal logistics of it. And it's kind of we're at a point now where twenty five years. We've been doing this for twenty five years an early days. There was more socializing We like each other's company a lot and we have a really good time when we get together. But it's always around playing it's always around recording and that's it We don't socialize outside of that. And even as I say that I think that's a bit weird but I mean Thomasson Hamilton Collins down in Nashville Johnny Gary Toronto. So guys see each other a little more often but still everybody's got their own other things going. On Wilson's he's writing another book. He's painting like a fiend. Everybody's got like Collins got an an incredible studio in his backyard. Nelson national now they just built the Thousand Square Foot Cathedral. Ceiling purpose built building. And so you know everybody. Everybody's busy and everybody's got their own things on the go and when we get together it's really intense as really fun. We laugh a lot and all the other complications that you would expect from band. That's been together. Twenty five years in the youngest member is fifty seven. You can imagine you know it can get. You can get a interesting. It has especially common the band of the Tom. Is You know the soberest member of the band. Now think about that for a moment. Yes yes. Tom has been drive for fifteen sixteen years. Wow so when you first met like that must have been a a trip you know. Here's the stories about Tom. And his his His old rock band and over the heavy lifestyle. And then it's like okay. Let's let's do a roots tribute thing really as it started out with like. How does that happen? I remember very early early early. Early early We started recording higher Which is the first album and I had a GIG and Bam Bam Center and Tom was playing in bands at wild. Bill's paddock right. So there was the two worlds I was. I was in the barracks Margaret Greenham Theater Playing Solo. Tom Down at at wild bill's paddock with junk house. Yeah and he comes to see me play. He comes to see my show and then of course because he's playing a club date. I think his show started at ten and mine was pretty much done by then so then I go down to see his show and were sitting on the ground in the Jan in the broom closet with mops and stuff around us. That was where the band's hung out at while bills and Drinking Vodka out of a bottle and Tom puts his arm around he goes. I'M GONNA be your bad influence now. God bless of can't even I use a drink. It has to be careful if you eat too much gluten. You know like so. Yeah who's going to be the bad influence now you know. I sneak over with the loaves of bread. Come on you know everybody everybody would. He made it through their addictions and weirdness. Which I are band is is so close. Because we've seen each other through death. Divorce rehabs You name it and We we all have a lot of respect for each other and patience for each other and a great fondness for each other. Because I mean speaking personally I get to be banned with with well. Four the greatest musicians that I'm ever gonNA run across and creative spirits. You know the rhythm section are one of the greatest in the World Johnny Diamond Gary Craig unbelievable on fantastic musicians and Richard Bell who was our our other member. Who's been gone now? Many many years you know he was. Richard Bell was in the Hawks. Ronnie Hawkins Band after the band left he he was in the ban for awhile. Play with Bob Dent. Like you know this all those been an Emmylou Harris's band on has toured with Bob Dylan and been his guitar player. Like I get to be in a band with this incredible players. I get to learn so much right from being beside them as opposed to everybody else who watches. I got to be on stage with him so you learn a lot. I get a lot out of it. It's great what has kept you guys together after you guys did a tribute to Willie P Bennett and was twenty. Five years ten albums. What is it about these group of musicians from different backgrounds doing their own projects that y? You guys'll come together I I don't know I mean I do know but All of the reasons I could give you would just be Kinda like it's a long list more than one thing but it's the old cliche. There's there's chemistry. There really is chemistry one of the jokes. We make his Colin and my our job is to keep Tom. Happy and his job is to keep us laughing which he does. I mean I've been in twenty five years. I've heard somebody story so many times. And he can still make me like fall down laughing. Which is amazing. He's very very funny man. And everybody's very There's there's lots of love. We were all raised by our mothers and I think that has something to do with it too. I think that there's a underneath those hairy crusty exteriors beats of some pretty serious hearts. So that's that's how we get along. I WANNA I wanNA talk about like your formative years bit. How old were you when you went to Ireland? My mother and I disagree on this but I think six and I've actually written at into a song so officially I was sufficiently yes. She's says I was seven. What if she knew? And how long were you there for? I was there still. I was seventeen so give or take eleven years formative years highschool all that and was. I read somewhere that I noticed it was on your website so I said Okay. People know about this then You you come out of Ireland. It focus on roots music. You to comes out. The same apparently went to school with these dudes and they start off as a punk band. Yeah we'll some curious. The influences in Ireland. That comes these two different types of music that it was a great school that we all went to which was a kind of unique School in Ireland. It was called a comprehensive and there was no corporal punishment and there was no mandatory sports which Ireland was of course for so long was very very much under the the thumb of the Catholic Church and There was a real classicism and the Protestant Catholic thing obviously was pretty intense in the south. Not as much as in the north at all But still there were kind of categories. That people were in. It was very hard to get out of of your little category that. You're you know middle class working class. Upper Class catholic-protestant Blah Blah Blah And this comprehensive was kind of a breath of fresh air because a lot of people from different classes and different walks of life ended up there and There wasn't this huge arts program but there were some progressive teachers. They're on one. In particular a guy named Donald Moxham. He encouraged me a great deal. But I know that he was really important in history because he gave them access When they were they were the hype. I that was their first band feedback or maybe it was the other way round. I can't remember one of the other. And then they became you two and whilst they were in that sort of very baby ban phase he made sure that they had access to the music room so they could rehearse and you know it's it's all you need when you're young musician is one person to take you seriously and to say on to help you. And so they played the school I was from the early on. I remember one of the most important records in my mother's record collection was Gordon lightfoot. Greatest Hits my personal theory is that we are influenced by parents record collection as much as anything and so her collection was pretty interesting and lightfoot greatest hits was in there and you know when. I pulled the guitar off. The wall debt was hanging there as an ornament and started trying to figure out how to play. Ed's I gravitated to lightfoot greatest hits and my sister who left ahead of me gave me Willie P Bennetts Hobos Taunt. Which is my connection into black in the radio But so I was sort of into the singer. Songwriter thing whereas what was happening at school and with bands like you too and there were several bands that came out of that school But it was sort of the new wave thing and so post punk still punk energy but new wave was seventy nine was that was the year the ground The Ground Zero for punk. They say so. I laughed the I guess it was punk more than anything New Wave would have been later. I left in seventy nine but it was a time when when people were picking up guitars and there was no rules anymore. You didn't have to be like one of the band's on top of the pops which is what we all watched in the near like hearing this sort of and generation There was coming out and that sort of that the bridge between the punk and the new haven. Yeah there was a band called the other band that was happening beside you to was the virgin prunes and I remember seeing both bands and a third band playing at This the church hall so the MOMS and Dads are invested making tea and to give to the kids and were in their pogo ing around in the dark with black lights with these these young punk bands and the Virgin prunes like. I don't know if you ever saw those guys like they were there. Were like the New York dolls. But there were Dublin. Had they were way more radical and punky than Than Youtube. But you to you know they had this great frontman Bono Paul Houston and even then even he was a high school student and he was he was a good front man so that was all happening. I just didn't have the wisdom introverted I was. I was like being in a punk band. I just couldn't even figure it out and I couldn't Afford Electric Guitar. I had an acoustic guitar and you couldn't really play God. Save the Queen on the guitar. But you could play. Russia ever sleeps right near you. So Neil Young has made it appear to make a second hold on before I jumped on. Did he pay you to bring that up? I'm just asking every every time. Every time he comes up he just calls the interview. And that's it and we're over I. It's it's I think because I had an acoustic guitar was sort of steered that direction but I also think I really had an affinity for the singer songwriter. Kind of thing you know that. That seemed to be more interesting than took. Most of my friends were doing shirt. When did you know that you wanted to be a musician? Or we'll know I wasn't. It wasn't a decision of. I'm going to do this but more of a realization. I am doing this I had this fantasy that I was going to join the navy. The British Navy. That was like when when they appearance. Say What are you going to do when you could school? And I'd say I'm going to join the navy. Now would shut them up but really. I had no idea what I was going to do. And I had this vague fantasy of being in the navy band so I just sort of took out a went But you know I had no clue about it like I. I left Ireland's In seventy nine I ended up in the states for a couple of years and all the while I was doing all the things that you do washing dishes. I worked at a Deli. I did a number of jobs and the music slowly slowly slowly was was Kind of running parallel with everything else. So at this one place the Malt shop in Minneapolis. I would dishwasher Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday and then I would play in in the restaurant You know forty five on fifteen off Friday and Saturday and then I go back to being a dishwasher so they were kind of coming along side by side and then there was the point where you go and this was many years later where you just stop doing your day job and throw your lot in one hundred percent with music and that's all is a very scary scary point because e kind of now. It's it's a lot more serious which you know you know what I'm talking about. It's just all suddenly you're making a living from it. It's it's way more serious deal and the stakes are much higher and the pressure is high and all that stuff. But I've been lucky I've I've had very I've had people that the believed in what I was doing enough to help me. And that's kind of what you need and so you've seen the progression from albums albums. You know people releasing albums people buying albums listening albums front to back and today where some people are just releasing dripping song every month. Whatever you know how. How has that impacted the way your releasing music it has has hasn't yet and it's it's almost Would the conversation. Every time I make a record we have a conversation. We Jennifer and I- Jennifer Manager. Is this the last time that we do this format or it still is there? It's it's more of a niche format. But they're still my demographic roughly people in their mid forties up to people in their seventy s are come into my shows. they're still buying records. it's it's the curve is getting real state now I just played shows in Denmark and Fat was startling. Because it's the very first show I played was in a theater Three hundred seater. Maybe a hundred and eighty people to two hundred and something came. I played with his Danish band. Who were backing me up. It was great. It was amazing. Beautiful Theater full. Pa and lighting and sound tax and monitor tax and the whole deal and it was so fantastically Danish and beautiful and AB. They wanted an encore. That another three encores. They got us back. So I'm thinking that's case we are going to sell some merchandise tonight and I stand by the Merck table and everybody goes take us so much is lovely and they're all walking out the door was like an MC who's the guitar player I work with. You said Yeah Man. Sorry I tried to tell you people. Nobody buys visa. They all stream like oh so sad and so much thought if is out in that yeah yeah and so whether it comes to North America to the same degree the writing is on the wall and so I don't know I I love making records. That's the problem. I like writing a batch of songs and then doing recording them all at once and then it there still a need to. Have you know your new album? Because it's kind of like the artwork for the tour and the story for the tour and it's your calling card. It's the it's the thing that you plunk down on the table and say I'm back and without that I don't really know how this works in my genre. Yeah for everybody other artists. It's it's a different deal for sure because they're already existing in different realm than I am. You know I'm not a youtube artist in that way so I don't I don't know I don't know how it's GonNa how your your first album was on cassette way way back in eighty six. You've talked a little bit about You know finally quitting your your day job Between Eighty six and ninety five when you was ninety five first general nomination. Don't remember okay. There's been so many of them to my website. Well my my. My Research Assistant says ninety five weeks ago. Were you still working where you were used to like? A working man back then. I hit my day job. The yellow tape came out. I still was working at light worked at livestream in Vancouver which was a health food store so I was like loading the the bins full of rolled oats and stuff. And I kept that up until I know say late eighties and then I focus solely on music. I lived in Vancouver until ninety two and then I moved Ontario and by then I was you know completely committed to this one way or the other but yes so be somewhere in the late eighties. I I quit my day job such as it was what. What does being a Canadian? What is a Juno nomination? I'm sure it's a very important. What is it? What is it do for a free musician's career? What did he do for years when you first got your first nomination? I know you've won a couple of them. What does it do when you first get nominated? I honestly I don't think it legitimises to a degree They're they're strange things awards for music because it's art so get say you know whether this is better than that but there is a thing. there's definitely a thing where you have. It's it's kind of like having a letters after your name. You know whatever. I don't know why I thought of. Ob That's awesome. But you know what I mean. It's of like a it. Connotes a certain amount of something. It doesn't necessarily mean that you've put in your ten ten thousand eight hundred thousand hours but it does mean that somebody thought you were good And to the to the people out there that don't know who you are. It can be kind of like where you can sort of. Put Your cards on the table and say well. This is who I am so from that aspect it is definitely a positive thing Aside from that so much of it is political it really is political and and so you know how much of that really matters. I don't know because you're already kind of preaching to the choir or you're already hanging out with the cool kids and so if you get to wear a badge that says I hang out with the cool kids. Does it really matter. It's it's it's a mixed thing you know when you don't get one and you've been nominated a lot of it feels weird and I went through that for years and years. I was jokingly referred to as the Susan Lucci of Canadian folk music which I didn't even know who she was. I guess she was a soap opera. Star who never got whatever their awards are never one kept getting nominee. Yeah yeah so I got nominated like lots and then finally I won two of them and both times that I won once was on my own for yellow. Jack Yeah I think it was for that I'll and then Blackie one And neither time was. I actually had the award show. Maybe if I just don't go I have better odds because that is so far. What's happened and nominated this year? No just kidding 'cause nobody's GonNa be so. There was the one that just that just happened. I missed that because my album came out so my album is coming out for this next cycle. So we'll see I don't know maybe there will be Juneau's next March doesn't look that good right now. Now no no. It doesn't so so what does success like. How do you Heidi determine what success is? Is it just that you have the ability? Continue doing it or is there. Unit sold is our trophies crowd size. What is what does that mean to you for me. It's just the ability to keep Which when you're young and you're starting out in this. You get a lot of get a lot of hot air blown up your skirt now in you get a lot of a lot of a lot of bullshit is is whispered in your ear and you get a lot of people saying things to you like. Why aren't you more? Famous is such a weird question. Like how do you know? What do you mean such a weird conversation? But I had a very good friend of mine. Gary Crystal who Gary was the founder of one of the founders Vancouver Folk Festival and is it wise man and he sat me down at his dinner table. One night because I was wanting about. I don't know it was something I should have. I haven't I fill in the blank. And he said Dude although he'd never say dude but he basically said look man. You have a car. You have a rental apartments. You have food that's it. That's all you get. Stop Stop thinking about this stuff because it will drive you mad and it will and again going back to my one of my my gurus Elizabeth Elizabeth Gilbert this great book that she wrote called Big Magic. She says in that book. You have no control over whether people like this stuff or not an adult like you. Don't it's it's not up to you and so there's a great freedom in that which is to just let go of that and if you can afford to keep making the work because the work is the whole point. The the the the songs that playing all that stuff. That's the reason to do it. And if it makes you have money that you can afford to keep doing it then you are successful then that the two things that you need have come together and that's success and there is there. Is this tiny sliver of artists. That are making big bucks. And then there's a huge slew of artists that are not actually able to hang on that are that are just clawing at the poverty line and Inbetween little margin of artists. That are making enough money to continue to do it and cover their expenses. You know and as as we go more and more into live work because album sales are falling off Airfares hotels be gear All that stuff and then your health Can you can you actually keep doing it can you? Can you get on a plane? One more time and sit for nine hours and then get in a car every day and drive for four or five hours as you go from GIG takes a toll on you so if you that. That's that's the game that's the if you can afford to keep doing it and you can cover your costs and and you know have a life. Then you're wildly successful. That's my definition. But you've you've you've even at fortunate to collaborate with a lot of people who who. Who Haven't you collaborated with that? You would love to work with one of the ones that I really got. Disclose was a Niccolo recorded a song that I wrote with Andy White for the Kings kings record and he basically he said I'd love to record. That song has Kolon was sending them out to various artists that were on our list and he said Yeah. I like that Song But he said CAN I. Can I rewrite some lyrics because there was a line in the song that says I was born at the start of the summer of love? I grew up in a world full change. And he said nobody's GonNa believe me. Sing and I was born at the start of the summer of love Nick Low. They know how old I am. It's not fly. So do you mind if I changed that and I said of course not here. Niccolo whatever the fuck you lot so. He rewrote the song to say an eager young man in the summer of love. I was loose in a world full of change which is such a great line. I was loosened a world full of change anyway so. He rewrote the song now. I tried really hard to get into the session because I was actually in London. I was in Camden town. Which is I was playing a GIG. When he was recording the song and Colin was was emailing me. Saying he's GonNa Record it tomorrow. He's rewritten and he's going to record it tomorrow. And I'm like Oh my God. I'm in Camden. And he's going to be in Camden in studio recording. Can I get in because if I can get into that session? I will freak right out. I was not invited. So that's the one for me the got away. I got to meet him after a talk with him. A little bit about it. And he's a delightful man but it's the it's I would love to have met. Johnny cash never got to meet him Roseanne. I have met. And she's superb human being. It's just you know being around those characters who have been in the business for for so long and and have a wealth of knowledge That would be trip to be around. Those people got to tour of fourteen fourteen or fifteen shows the Rodeo kings. The three of us just as a trail we opened whole bunch of shows for Merle haggard man thing so you know that does anybody from that kind of era in particular would be. It'd be amazing just to be around them to be able to talk and hang out a little bit. You're there's a quote or this is attributed to you. I think it was on your last album. The golden era of analog recording. You said you wanted to get back to that. Beautiful tying with Neil young and and sort of his whole mission on bringing this sort of the analog sound back. Tell me your thoughts on on analog where we are with you know how people listen to music and stuff digital is definitely a double edged sword because on the one hand that record which. I'm talking about getting back to the golden era of analog is in fact was recorded on a laptop so but they aesthetic behind the idea behind it was there was a point with with sort of that the high end of analog where the engineers were at the top of their game because they had worked as the equipment grew. The technology developed When you went from recording For TRACK TO SIXTEEN TRACK. A thirty two track and all the compressor issues and Priam's all the stuff that A modern elegant high analog studio would have because it was all out outboard and all those circuits and all those Just all that circuitry tubes but not necessarily tubes but all that stuff it the people that ran at day they learned how to use it as it developed and so there was a point where it reached xenophon. And it was sort of in the seventies where you had bands like steely Dan and Not just them but bans like that. Who were they? Were pushing it. As far as they could Multi track tape and The sounds were amazing in the country. World The an album that I've always loved a Behind closed doors charlie rich. That was kind of that that the death the top of the game of that era where all the players would be in the same room at the same time they were all crack players like they do force the two or three songs a four hour session and they'd walk in with never heard the song before so in a four hour session they would learn songs come up with an arrangement record the definitive version of it and then move onto the next one and the engineers everybody was functioning on all cylinders and Aguirre was gorgeous so when he looked digital digits ones and Zeros it's it's it's It's a it's it's a different. It doesn't have the same When you hear people talking about digilent- start moving your hands a lot because it's hard to define it but no matter how good your resolution is. You're still talking about one zero. So you're still talking about square waves Analog doesn't have that so the amount of detail that you can get. Analogue is potentially better however digital equipment is unbelievable and it's come so far and the fact that. I can fly to a studio in Winnipeg and record an album for bare-bones money. That sounds really good and What I meant by that the trying to get back to that. Golden era of analog was the method of recording. Where everybody's in the room at the same time and you're reacting to each other you're trying to capture something sonically in the moment as opposed to I record my part to a click track and then I overdubbed I overdubbed I overdubbed and and it's a very different process. It's just a it's a different beast altogether lacking the Rodeo kings has always been about Recording live and Whenever we can as much as we can annalong just because it's a different sound whether it's better sound now or not is is definitely debatable. And there'd be a lot of way more qualified people than me who could argue both ways and I've sat chatted with them both with both sides but a there was a I level of skill amongst the players and the engineers that I think we've lost a lot of in this era because what's happened with digital is it's come along so fast that's There's a lot of engineers who don't actually know their gear that while they may know pro. Tool's really well but they don't necessarily know Mike Placement really well. That's changing And there's you know there's there's a a level of engineer that I've I've had the pleasure working with in places like national which is unbelievable. They they have. They've they've If they've ingested all of it so they they know all about Mike's they know all about to gear they know all about digital gear and they've got an all under their fingertips but that's just starting to happen. So what what we're getting into now is. Is this hybrid of engineer. Whose equally comfortable with both digital and analog and they will use both or either of them depending on what's more appropriate which is really amazing. It's interesting when we've talked to some of the engineers that we've had the pleasure to speak with on welcome to the music. They've talked about the equipment getting smaller so they're able to pack up my suitcase but essentially pack up a suitcase fly to whatever location. Set up the gear both in log and or digital whatever the combination is and they can just set up like that record back it up and away they go and it's just they've they've talked about it being. It's made it easier to set up on location. Yeah I believe that's true. I think that the quality of what you walk away with this really really high now and digital has become this thing the double edged sword of course with digital. Is that the at the same time as it's enabling us to do stuff Compact low budget all that stuff that the tools are are really heavy now that we like an intense. What we can do is is amazing but at the same time digital spotify. And it's cutting it's got in the industry. It's killing the industry and you know like a off in February. I was in Toronto to do Some television breakfast TV with black the royal king. So we're pulling into this Downtown Television Studio at five o'clock in the morning and I'm walking and it's right at Nathan Phillips Snot Nathan Square the Big Square with all the billboards where the soft the square. And so I'm I'm standing there. Five o'clock there's nobody on the streets and I'm looking up and there are those huge billboards that are like four stories tall. Led Billboards. And they're all devoted to spotify. And I swear to God to ask there it is. It's Dan story right there and if I mean we don't we don't WanNa get into that conversation because it's it's it's a whole other conversation but if I'm making point. Zero Zero. Four cents per stream in order for that to equal the sale of one CD. That's five thousand streams you know. There's the math I go to a show I sell. I played a show one of the shows. I played New ALBUM I sell thirty five CDs at the show. That's great. That's that's that's reasonable. I'm going to pay back my investment on the album that I just made take me a year or two to cover all the costs and in the meantime I got the steady cash flow at it works out but as soon as I start looking at the streaming model. That's IT I can't afford to record anymore. And so the whole thing get skewed towards the the acts that are subsidized by those labels. That are actually making some money. Which is very the whole thing just gets distorted so that the likes of me. It's tough and the only way we can make a living playing the live playing life. Yeah yes you'll have it. I know that you you're also record. Producer Adrian producing you. Do these songwriter workshops. You talked earlier about you. Know as long as the body can hold up. You continue to go on the road obviously post Kobe. One is that sort of quote unquote your retirement. Does that sort of what you could see yourself doing? You know staying involved. You know not saying that. You're getting old. They're sure where does all of this sort of fit into your your your music career. I don't I don't honestly know. And every now and then my mother who is eighty four says you know. You can't do this BURP. And she's right because it's it starts to. It does start to take a toll Physically the recovery time when I come home from a month and a half touring through Europe is is greater than it used to be but I love playing live. I love it. I love touring. I don't WanNa quit so I am going to spend the I. I quit smoking a number of years ago. I I took up vaping because it was a way for me to fiddle with my hands and get some nicotine and well like nicotine nicotine. Great Drugs But eventually I had to quit that because I couldn't I just can't like it's anything that is stopping me from doing this. I gotta go so the idea for me is to just keep playing a as as live as long as I can. If they're still is alive seen so we'll see what happens when we when we somehow ease back into whatever's coming next I I believe in my heart that there there will be and that people still really want that but At some point you have to say. I can't do this very often and I don't know what I'll do them I making records for other people but if if if something that's a maybe as well I don't know being a record producer is that is that smart of a move teaching. I like teaching songwriting to people. And there's definitely that's one of those jobs that the more you do it the more you know you know. Could you imagine having you know if John? Pine was teaching songwriting. Like what a class that would be so to be able to go and be with somebody who's been in the business that That you can kind of not just learn about songwriting. But the philosophy around it that kind of thing you know. Maybe that's some thing I can do when I'm older and and not able to travel as much but until then I'm going to be hitting it hard. You Know I. I figured out how to tour with just me and a guitar are a a slightly extravagant pedal board and I love it. I've got friends in all over the place that I get to visit once every maybe if I'm lucky every eighteen months twelve you know. Sometimes I stay with people that I've been friends with them for twenty years. I see them once every two years. I stay with them for five days. And it's it's it's I don't want to let go of that perfectly so steven one of the questions. I liked task is right now. What's what's in your year when you listen to a? I've made this decision which I try not to make too long I record. I made a record a couple years ago. Called the secret of climbing and It's it was a vinyl only release because I was asked to make it by guiding Roy. Gandhi and Roy Gandhi founded a company called. Rega research in the seventies I believe and Riga makes turntables speakers amplifiers CD players. They're British company. They have employ about one hundred and fifty people they make and sell. I think five thousand turntables a month worldwide. And they have done since the seventies and you know the whole Oh Stephen. The death of vital drill factors like amazing company. And they. They're really you know they. They refined things by microns. Which is how you measure your hair like. It's it's this weird little world when you when you come across a company like that it's like A. It's like a high end car manufacturer or something. Anyway Roy wanted to make a record that he could use demonstrates turntables where he knew. Because if somebody if you could imagine that you spend your whole life creating the back end but you have no control over the front end. He's got some pretty strong opinions on what people are doing wrong in the studio because he listens to it in a way that you and I don't So he over. The year has championed records that he really loves that he feels. We're recorded in a way. That is what he wants to hear and He has actually made a couple of records so he basically said to me. Could we make a record with as little technology between you? And the cutting Leith as possible. So the microphones obviously the wires and but going directly to preempts that he made himself no. Eq's no mixing boards no fixing cutting pasting. All one take and that went to vocal and guitar track. Wanted to and then. We went from that which was on a studer eight track. So real. Nice quality reel to reel from that. He went to left and right so he had to mix because he took to mono signals. And you put them into Stereo and we added a little bit of river that we had to arm wrestle over that because we had to add digital reverb and Roy was like no but we did and we both felt that it improve the project but it sounds like the record sounds it's so intimate sounding it's almost at first. I felt that it was almost claustrophobic. Because I am so close to the microphone. And because there's no compressors and there's no accusers. No the signal is not going out through other circuits. It's going direct to take and then from that direct to the cutting late and when he cut the record most of the Times you go into a mastering studio and you've run to signal through the mastering board so he went to air. Which is George Martin Studio in London? Told this Guy Ray scarf out of retirement and they bypassed the air Mastering Board and went direct. He said those literally a wire going from his reel to reel directly to the cutting lady brought in this master cutting engineer. Who cuts the mother disc that you stamp all the record so that was my sort of reinitiation into the world of vinyl because I left final? I quit vinyl. Twenty years ago I adding around I gave up on it. I let I kept my vile but very modest collection. I bought into CDs HUNDRED PERCENT. I was all for sees. They were great and they still are and musician. Traveling around you. Put three hundred of those suckers in the cardboard case in your suitcase. And that's your tour. Right try caring three hundred. Lp's around on your own in a car like it's it's a real pain. The artist so I gave up on Vinyl and when Roy and I worked on this project he asked me if I had a turntable and I said No. And he was embarrassed for me and he gave me one of their starter. Basic Riga model turntables. And I realized. So here's the the answer your questions. Sorry sorry long other. I realized that I wasn't listening to my CDs. I had downloaded most of my CDs onto my hard drive and they were sitting in boxes in the basement when my wife and I moved to Victoria all these boxes came with me and I looked at them and went. What am I doing with these things? These are just files that are in this format. They're all in my hard drives goodbye and I took them all to value village by entire CD collection. Goodbye and It was very weird feeling Because I've been collecting this stuff for years and years. I I don't wow many. I had it wasn't like some massive collection but it was my collection. I realized I have not bought music for twenty. No ten years haven't bought music because I don't I don't go to record stores anymore because they don't exist and I had fallen out of that whole habit and I I thought okay. Well that's it. I'm going back to vinyl so I've been buying vinyl so I tend to listen to old music because some of the new stuff is snobbery. Well pressed or it's ridiculously expensive. Like I'M NOT PAN thirty five bucks for a vinyl record. That that's ludicrous to me. I I will go and buy from the artists at a Gig for that money but mostly I'm buying stuff that's on sale or I go to the second hand store and buy it there and most of it is stuff that I used to have or I had on CD and now I wanna have a vile so what I'm listening to Omelettes into everything But on and of course when I when I'm traveling you know what's on my phone and everything so I do that too but Everything cream do you still have still have all the CD's Kellen. I did the same thing we got rid of ours. We didn't go to value village. A hand off to this guy over here. You still have those because if you do you've got all the black King Tut's even stuffing stay zero. You've got I do. Hana stuff there I do do. And it's interesting because as soon as you gave them to me Greg I go. I don't have a CD player. Yeah there's only one by car and I I don't I hardly drive anywhere. Forget about now. I'm on the same tank of gas field in Beano BEF- before we had to hunker down but so in short greg your CDs for now in my storage. But you're right it's it's it's vinyl or it's it's it's it's it's weird but you throw on their radio stations sometimes. Yeah Oh yeah. A lot of that But it I realized Oh my God. I'm sorry I'm not listening to music. I'm listening to French. Cdc because I don't know what they're saying and they have much better. Music tastes in the evening though. They've got great jazz and it's me. I don't know what I don't speak French at all. I'm a classic Canadian so I don't know what they're saying so it's perfect nice. It's fulfills all the things I want and the music's better but I thought this I gotta go Scott Start Listening to music again with intention. Not just having a burger in the background. Because I'm a I'm supposed to be better. So yeah so. It's been very exciting. It's really fun to go. There are some well. Toronto's got some great music source. But if you're ever in the prairies all my God Saskatoon and Regina and Winnipeg they three. Those three cities have incredible use final stores. You know they. They've got tie-dyed t-shirts bombs on everything. That's going way back way back in time back when you started Steve this has been a delight to to speak with you into to listen to your stories before we let you go if people want to tune into your under the hood if they want to find out more about you baby of by by some vinyl or whatever where where should they go. Stephen fearing dot com would be the best place to go. Everything's there and It's the weird thing. Websites are becoming sort of like back room. instagram twitter facebook it. Hopefully I'm easy to find if I'm not. I'm not doing my job very well but I am. I'm on all of those platforms pretty regularly so Yeah and and there's youtube site as well which if you know we're archiving all this stuff there as well so it's interesting we're right now. We're fighting the YOUTUBE OF COPYRIGHT CONTROL. Because for some reason they're they're questioning. Why did you play that song? You're not the copyright holder. So that's what happens with Youtube. I think when you suddenly start uploading a bunch of music stuff they go away so but yeah all the all these live. Streams are archived. There yes Stephen. During Dot Com will steer you to everywhere. This has been awesome. Thanks so much for joining US Steven. Thanks for having me and letting me I can talk your ears off. Thank God it's awesome for writers. Your Time Take Care. I WILL CLICK. Leave see later safe. Stay healthy and you Nah.

What the fuckers what? The fuck buddies. What the fuck stirs? What's happening? How's it going? I'm Marc Maron. This is my podcast, WT f-, welcome to it. I magic summer. You are new to this show after last week's David Letterman interview, welcome, welcome to the show. This is the part where I talk a bit about myself and ask how you're doing sometimes get you caught up on my life that can happen. Sometimes to tell you what's going on in my mind. Sometimes I get aggravated about the cultural and political situation in our country and world right now. Yes. So that's what's up a Mark. How are you? Thanks for coming by glad you like that interview us week. A lot of people did first off, John Turturro is on the show today, and I'd like to give you a little background on that because I had one of the rare, you know, near meltdowns during. That interview it was it was I almost lost my shit in front of an amazing actor. And I wasn't acting. I sweat broke you know, things came on glued. I'll, I'll tell you about it in a minute. But let's let's stay with what a what I'm dealing with right now. What's going on, which is a couple of things I need to address here? At the outset. Is this the outset it was a little misunderstood? But it was also on me. In referring to a alcoholics anonymous, which is the program that I got sober in. I kind of I don't think it was glibly, but I said, it's the only thing you know, it's I said today, and reference to his experience with his father that, you know, it's really the only option and I it's just old school thinking, you know, I know it's not the only option and I just want to and some people push back on this. I got some emails, and I think that, you know, it might be discouraging to people who are trying to get sober, if they think that's it. If they didn't have a good experience in those rooms or it's not for them or whatever. And I think they were right. And telling me that by saying, it's the only option it's you know, it's not doesn't help a it makes it gets might make people hopeless. And here's why here's what I got to say on that. That's true. There are other options you should investigate whatever option you want and whatever fucking works. Fucking do it whatever you gotta do to save your life from addiction from alcoholism for. For whatever compulsion. That is destroying it, you know, do it if it's if it's safe, and it's not going to cause more trouble. I don't judge anybody I there's many people who've gotten sober with nothing who have gotten just white knuckled it or whether you, however, you whatever your perception is of any process of recovery. Great for me. It was just a it's just easy. You go there all over the place. He show up on any given day. There's usually many knowing asks any questions you walk in. You sit down no nothing. What, but that's it's old school stuff. And sometimes you whatever that has to offer may not be for you, but I do want to make it clear that there are other ways, and, and honestly, whatever you have to fuck in do you know, just to get through a day, I there's no judgment here. And you know, I can only. Say what worked for me? But again, there are other ways and it investigate whatever you need to investigate do. Whatever you gotta do to get that day sober, and hopefully a string of days. That's my statement on that. Thank you for the input people who were aggravated the other thing, less pressing is that on the Letterman interview, I talked about my first appearance in my shiny suit turns out that was the second appearance. I went back and looked at him. Some kid at posted some kid who I don't know who he is someone who put up four of the appearances, I believe there were five in total. There were four stand ups and one panel. But the shiny suit was definitely the second one because I watched the first one and I'm like, oh, yeah. That horrible thing that, that, that terrible moment in the black suit in the I was a little shake. Remember that got myself sick before because I was so. Nervous which I used to do a lot, any, any anything that I had to do that was a big deal out stress out to the point where I would make myself ill. And I remember I was getting a cold, and I was like worried about my voice, and I was backstage, and biff was about to pull the curtain aside. And I was like I don't feel well as their Kleenex and, and that was a that was the first one, and it was okay, but I put it out in my mind, it's interesting how the mind works. I don't know. I honestly I don't know how old you are, or whether this is because of age. But. I don't know how I got through almost anything back in the day. I really don't my memories as they get further away. Like there's some parts of my life where I'm like, I don't even know who that guy was. When I watch him, I'm like, oh, that's me. But it's like I, I have to sort of engage in some sort of attempted empathy for my younger self, because, like I was like in constant anxiety in constant aggravation and anger, and self loathing and just volatile in self involved. Okay. Some of those things I still have their just their tempered. But, but I really I don't know. Man, I, I, I know how I got here, but I'm amazed. I think that I'm here and I can't really believe it's happening. And I try to engage in some gratitude and show up the best I can for for, for other people. That I tried. I try to live a good life and it's not easy when your brain is a fucking ball of snakes. Also, you know, I tried to have a private life, and I know that the relationship I have with many of you is visceral, and it's connected and it's emotional, which it is. And I do share a lot of my life, but I do try to have a private life and, you know, I'm trying to two separate, you know, there was a period, long period of time where you know, anything that went on in my life. And in my mind, I would dump onto these mics without really taking into consideration what it would mean to me or what it would mean to other people that, you know, maybe involved in my life. So, you know, I tried to maintain a private life. It's something I had to learn to do. And, and I hope you respect that, that being said, I, I do I, I think I should tell you that Sarah and I split up a while ago. And I've been sort of going through that period in that process and that sadness and it's sort of having a again. I, I do. To have a private life, and, and it is my business. But a lot of you, you're part of my narrative in the way that I allow you into my life, and I just I thought it would tell you that and it's been it's been a difficult few months, and it's made me, it's got me into a state of like really thinking about my life. My relationships you throughout my life with everybody. And it's, it's I don't think it's a midwife thing, but it's something they're just something about me trying to land in my life and decide how I want to live the rest of it. That's been sort of, you know, pressing on me and because of that I've been doing a lot of reading I've been doing a lot of reflecting. I've been doing a few meetings, and I've been talking to people, and, you know, just really trying to keep my heart above water and and, and tried to, to sort of change some patterns in my life, you around my ability to enjoy it. Okay. All right. I'm okay. And you know, we move on this is this is this is humans. This is humans. Humans do things securing your home feels harder than it should folks.

Go to SimpliSafe dot com slash W F that simply safe dot com. So I w t f get secure get it get secure. It's an amazing thing these conversations that I have with people. And I to be honest with you. I don't always know how they're going to be received. I know my experience of them and I get very immersed in them and while I'm doing it. I you know, sadly, maybe not sadly, maybe I don't I'm not thinking about you guys. I'm thinking, I'm not thinking, I'm in it. I'm having a conversation. And I'm following how that goes in you. I'm just kind of rolling with the conversation and that's the thing about when I do these things on the road, the John Tura talk, which you're about to hear. He's, you know, he's in a show. The name of the rose, it's airing on Sundance, and you can watch episodes, down their streaming service Sundance now or at Sundance TV dot com. But he he's a great actor. I love the guy and yes, sometimes people don't come out to LA and I, I take it to them. I have a rig that I work with I bring it on the road to do intros. And sometimes when I'm in New York, I'll do interviews, and sometimes if they're on location. Brendan, my producer will meet me, and we'll set up a mini studio, but other times, it's like, yeah, I'm all right. Let's just we can just hang out in the room in the hotel room and it's fine. It's a little odd, you know, because I'm not staying usually a giant sweets or anything, so we're just sitting there. No, tell him but, you know two zero John came over and when met in the lobby and, you know, he's an excitable guy, and he's an intense guy, and he likes to talk, and it was just one of these like these situations where you're not gonna hear this most likely. But I do I do want to share the experience with you. Is that? He I was recording. And you know, I was getting obsessed with him. You're moving the Mike around, because, you know, I take it for granted that people are used to, to using a Mike holding a Mike and then I looked down at my recorder, and I noticed that it was not recording it had stopped recording. And I didn't know how long it had stopped for we'd been going for a while. And it was just like that moment. And I don't experience too many moments like this in my life anymore, where you're like home. I god. So, you know, it's like you could experience these moments all you want something, you know seemingly in my control just did something. And now I have no control over what's happened. And I don't know how much I've missed or what's going on. So in that moment I started to spin and John sitting there on, like Faulk, and I gotta take the card out, and I gotta stick the card in the, in the computer to see what I have and pull that up. And then I gotta figure out it was my fault, I the fucking card filled up, and I fortunately add another card, but, like I had to figure out, you know what? The gap was and he's watching me through all this, and I'm like, oh, my God. This never happened this never happened before, and it hasn't. I've lost in episode two by accident years ago. But this never happened and I'm kind of freaking out, and I'm like in there's that moment in life where you're like fuck it. You know what? Forget it just I can't do it. I can't just you know, I'm sorry. Just go home. I appreciate it, and it's my fault and I'm an asshole, and fucked up. And I don't know. We can do it again. I don't know forgoing get through it or whatever. And it's an odd sort of situation to have. Guess going like okay? Just take it easy on my no. Man. It's like I can't I and then I realized dude, dude, you've been doing this. You know, you know, like a long time. Now just put together you know lock back in get started again. Don't you know, you don't need to sit here in front of John Turturro and beat the shit at yourself. And you know that's what happened. I was like, okay. All right, we're good. Let's just start from this place. And you know, kind of get back into it, and we did. But it was it hadn't happened a long time. There's a couple of things that have happened in the last year that haven't happened in a long time that one and the flop sweat at the comedy cellar, flop sweat, at the comedy. So you're never when things get get away from ya. And yet, there's and I was talking about this with a friend of mine, where. We have those moments where like your body and your brain. Probably rightfully so is like just get out of here. Just just get walk away from it. You know, when when something has gotten like you've made a horrible mistake, that's fucked, your job up. There's party that's you're sort of like, I'm just gonna go okay I'm an asshole. I'm gonna leave. Okay, good. Luck with everything or when you're on stage and you're not you're not doing well, it's sort of, like you need feel that sweat on the back of your neck. There's definitely party that wants to just be like, I, I'm gonna go ahead and leave. Now you don't like me. I'm I'm out. Okay. I'm I'm never going to do this again. And you know as time goes on you get older. You realize like, you know, ride it out man. He's gotta right? But I'm like that with brushing my teeth, where we're really I've had to figure out, I think there were years of my life where I'm just sort of, like I can't, I'm not going to brush my teeth. I'm going to go to bed without brushing my teeth yum, not gonna get up at a reasonable hour. And I just had to train myself to just do it. Just stay in it just do the thing. You know don't because a lot of times you just not doing things. So you have something to beat yourself up about what's easier than brushing your fucking teeth, when he go to bed now, I'm compulsive about him, like a floss freak the point is like you make yourself, do things that you should be doing because he should in just make a habit of it. So you don't you can take that off the list of reasons why you're an idiot. That's myself health tip today. And also, the tarot thing worked out, but yeah, it was like, you know, I freaked out a little folks, I I I'll be honest with you freaked out a little, as I mentioned earlier, we're sponsored today by squarespace in scores base is responsible for giving millions of people, the power to turn their dreams into reality from restaurant owners to artists designers lawyers even podcasters, whatever you're doing.

Those are the dates you can go to W T F pod dot com slash tour and get links. All those tickets. And come see me. So now I will share with you. The conversation. I had that they freaked out in the middle of with, with the amazing actor Jon tomorrow, who's a great guy, intense smart engaged man, and his show, the name of the rose, you can stream now on. Sundance now. It's on Sundance. You can also see at Sundance TV dot com and its airing on Sundance. This is me in a New York City hotel room with John Turturro. You remember that place, the Amato's opera friends with my parents, perform them. What was that place? Because I you know, I was a little opera house. Yeah. And a lot of really good singers came out of there. They went, you know, further on and some people just didn't get paid to do the operas, but there was something kind of old world intimate because this, this neighborhoods, these neighborhoods around here had all these little ethnic theaters. Right. You see the history of it like on grand street. I dunno between wear and center. Oh, I guess east of center, there was the grand street theater, that was the Broadway feeder before there was any Broadway. And so, like, in was it Yiddish was I, they, they would do say with do King Lear. Like, in Yiddish then that leaves the set and then they would do it in Italian. Really? Yeah. The same actors no different actors same set. Okay. So they had a lot of these day, like, Sicilian theaters. Neopolitan theater's Yiddish. German feed is pussy feeders Popa theaters. The movie theaters up there, all the second avenue. That was the theater over there, and like eleventh street. It's two media. There's the intermediate now. It's movie. Right. That sounds like an amazing movie idea to have the two troupes doing Lear in, in, because everyone that was their entertainment in their language. And this was all recite the I have a book because I used to have an office on an on center street and of all these little. Tiny theaters that they had now their stores or apartment buildings and stuff. But on or they're all gone, but I mean some of the buildings are still there but they were transformed and right, tenement buildings or so I'm was interested in that and you don't and I used to go to a lot of feeder when it was cheap in the seventies ridiculous theater company circle rap and you know where you could see things for a couple of bucks. I would see all these great Charles Ludlam like he was fantastic. Brilliant. He used to like, do everything in drag where I know like armor, vet the and and or lover. Yeah. But it was just you'd walk into the theater, and you start laughing right before the show. Yeah. But it was a older Greenwich Village. Affordable experience. Yeah. You know and if. Like it you only spent a couple of bucks. And that was that was nothing to lose nothing. And even if he didn't like it was probably gonna be kinda mind-blowing anyways. Yeah, I kind of think, you know, people have gotten priced out a little bit in theater one theater, especially because there was a thing of seeing something live seeing somebody say or something, you'd say I like you know, had no money and could afford to scrape a couple of bucks. And yeah. She whatever I wanted to see so your fascination with this stuff comes from just growing up here. Well, I, I love anything that has to do with the history of things in the past. I think it's I, I was a substitute teacher before I went to grad school. And I told him American history, not that I knew that much about it. But I think that you people think they invented things and there's all these instruments, like the banjo banjo came from Africa. Sure. It was recreated here. Yeah. All these instruments that are Mediterranean and Arabic. There's instruments. I don't even know what they are. You don't know what to end there's a whole tradition of that. And sometimes they hear certain types of music, I'm going. Why do I why does this music like just pulse? Eight within me. I realize, you know, after I did all my DNA and everything, like they have all these different things, you know. Strands of different cultures coursing through my bloodstream. And when you do that. Yeah, I did it couple of years ago. And then Dr Henry, Louis gates asked me to be on discovering roots. And then I did that show. So they really have an army of people doing that. It's I can not recommend it more highly wasn't what was left for the TV because we didn't it for three hours. And if there's three people, there's only twenty minutes of you. Yeah. But the experience of being with him and seeing everything were surprised. I was. Yeah, I was, and then he gave me more stuff afterwards because I said, give me everything I don't care what it is. They asked me to do it like four years ago. And now it's like finally happening. It's it's it's it's what did you find out? Well, I found out, I was a lot of different things. Right. I've found that that one. I'm related at the end of the show you who you related to you and it's funny. 'cause I was showing, if interview I think he must know this because he was on the show. I'm rely I'm related to Brian Gumbel. You have. Like, you know, cousins from, I don't know if it's on the black side of the way, but I related to he's like a cousin of mine. Yeah. No. Yeah. Did you talk to him about? No. I want to sound like you know, we have to have like a cousin meal and his brother. Yeah. But I mean I wasn't surprised. Yeah. Of all these things, right. You know that I have because I'm to Cillian so I could be. I mean I could be, you know, Arabic can be Norman I could be Jewish could be Greek I could be Spanish I can be French. It's all those and I'm, I'm I have a lot of beer, Ian in me a Middle Eastern. That's some and sub Saharan some northern African, you know, and there's a lot predominantly of Italian whatever the hell that means when he grew up, you were just Italian, I knew that wasn't true. Because my mother was Sicilian. And my father was from Pula, and when they had arguments, that's in the south, too, but it's on the idiotic was to two different languages fiasco. And my mother had red hair and was very fair and, you know, and she was good with Nuys. So. On, you know, he might father would say these things to where like you. You're really your dirty Sicilian. He would say, these derogato- hit a foul mouth. And sounds great. They did. They had a very hot legend. I mean, now sometimes they didn't get along. But sometimes but. If your from southern Italy, it's really the kingdom of the twos. Sicily's, when Naples was the, the capital, but Sicily's completely I've worked there. It's, it's like you're in Africa, and you're in Europe. Right. It's its own language beautiful. Yeah. Beautiful. It's beautiful. It's a very mountainous. And it's, it's the there's, there's people can be very reserved and then very warm, but you'll see people would like blond hair and curly, blond hair and blue eyes like when my nose and then you see people who look like, you know, one of the cast of Hamilton, you know what I mean. You'll. Right. Well, yeah. And it's like this all the Cillian thing and, you know, you're, you're very close to Tunisia. Yeah. I mean, your business, small waterway, you know, so and the Arabs. Ruled there for a long time when you went there. Did you feel connected? Yes. Yeah. And in some ways. Yes, in some ways, it was foreign. And I mean I went there in the nineteen eighties for this. Yeah. And but I, I learned to ride a horse there. So there was a lot of things that I eventually I felt very comfortable just being in the mountains on a horse. I was a kid who never wrote horse, my life. Did you do right now? Do you still can write up? I'm gonna ride on this. Yeah. I kept it up for a while. But these were great horses. They were Spanish who they were trained. Right. My one of my horses. His name was Ma through, and that was a fantastic or so. But they were really brilliantly trained horses. They scare me. Man. You're scared at first, and then you have to make fun of my friends with it. And you have to feed it and wash it, and I'm actually horse will say, get your smell, and then you'll you're in you. Well, I was in my horse. Yeah. My husband want anyone around him after a while. So, but it was terrifying for the big animals. I know man. And you're like, you know. But it's beautiful. And I got to experience things that I never did any road recently, I'm gonna ride tomorrow, because I have to write in this other thing I'm doing right now. I'm doing the plot against America by Philip Roth all my. It's great book. Yeah. They're making a movie is no kidding parts. David Simon is David Simon turns. Really? Oh, that's amazing. So they just gonna play real they're going to do the whole thing, using a lot of footage of Lindbergh and certain people. That's very when did that project start to have I guess it was a few. He wasn't that interested in doing it when, when Obama was it. He wrote it when Bush was president. Yeah. No, I read I read Kim came out. And, and it's I mean, the whole American I there's I mean, he took a lot of things that are very truthful, and, you know, obviously history is really revisionist because everyone thinks everyone wanted to be patriotic and fight in the war, but eighty percent of our country, did not want to be involved in the second World War after World War, One and the level of, you know, there was a big Nazi party year level of anti-semitism, you know, and. An American I is were really that was Lindbergh's you know, he was one of those people when people were American I is a doll was an American, I gore Vidal or his father his Gordo really it started Yale. Of course, every, I mean I went to yell as a as a. Special as a drama student, you know, I was going to is a handicap, the Haitian. But a lot of things start at those IB league institutions of saying, let's keep keep your. Yeah. It starts to be intellectual level, and then it becomes real. You know, this is, I mean, the drama school used to be right next to the skull and bones. So I had a few encounters with those people. Over the years, they were like a frat, though really warranted. You would never see them. You could never see who was in skull, and bones. Oh, as soon as it was like a CIA blackout site. Yeah. Couldn't see they could throw things over the fence at you. But you would never see them. But did you feel like it was threatening or it's just a bunch of kids? Well, it's weird. If you were like a dishwasher late at night, and then guys are thrown three over the fence, or your dishwasher ios, a dishwasher with me and Charles Dutton. We were both dishwashers at the cabaret and, and they were in us one night. So we but we responded, hey, I would do how'd you fight back this through things back over the fence. I was thinking you know, you know, but it was odd like someone wanted to throw debris on us. Yeah. I mean, there was a black guy in another dark skin talion Julia. I could be a lot of things yet and you never know what? And these they like they dumped all this stuff over the fence on us as if it was funny. Yeah. It was. Very funny. No. And I didn't think it was very funny. We were working, you know, putting out the garbage. I remember that and not left a Mark. I was like, wow. So this is yell. This is the future of our country in the world. These are the world thinks things don't change. I mean things change. And but that's what I'm saying going back. You understand what when you read certain things, you know, if you read about nineteen twenty four they just wrote a big article about the immigration laws. Yeah, my father came here in twenty-five, but his father had stout, established residency, but they closed doors to. Mass immigration, especially Italy had the most immigrants for one country. There was a lot of Jewish immigrants, but they were in different countries, and my father took him six years to get here because they couldn't get in. I was in one thousand nine hundred five he was born twenty but he got here in thirty one but his father had established a residence was here have been here a bunch of times, and what kind of business, he, he was a naval officer. But then he went into, you know, he was a builder. You father, my grandfather. Yeah, but then they finally got here. But when you read what he wrote about, you know, talian and Jews. I mean they were you know, wow, you just read the description of about, you know, the interbreeding and the lowering of the, with the junk science, yet, it was rolled. What's the word for gen-x eugenics? He has the junk and it had all these guys. And you know. That's some scientists who were behind it too. But it was eugenics. Yeah, I can't, you know, it's like every day I can't. It's getting harder and harder for me to function. Yeah. There, but I go back the only reason I go back is, I think, okay? This is what people thought and then you see people get accepted here. And then forget that anything like, you know, you can't forget that, you know, because this is what America looks this is what it was. Yes, that one of the books I really not to go off on the tangible one books. I really loved about was Nancy Eisenberg's book, white trash, it's not the most maybe fun book. But I, she delineates certain things about the whole group of supposedly white people waste people will call weeks, people, people who came here, they were just supposed to work the land and die. Right. There were discardable and they count on, you know, from. From England, you know, and you know, places of whereabout, but these people die, eventually once they became squatters, and they were not landowners. They had no money, and they were lower than slaves. So, of course, they had to have someone to look down upon too, but she breaks it down about this. And then this myth of whiteness, that was kind of laid on this is a book called when the Irish became white, I mean I wasn't considered white until the nineteen fifties. You know, you, you were my father was other. Yeah, he wasn't black right? Even though he looked you know, he could have been black, but he, he was the check other. And then all of a sudden miraculously, he became white. So I'm just it just fascinates me, the mixture that we all are. And I think everyone, you know they, they cling to these myths of things that has nothing to do with who you got. Right. That's what this whole books about. Yeah, a lot of it. Have you always had this thing this fascination with history? Not I've learned a lot more after I got out of school because I worked there and people gave me where intitially that worked in. I did a prima Levy film would Francesco Rosi a great director, the truce book. So for five years, he introduced me the prima Levy and all these things, and I started reading the talian Jewish literature in Italian literature, and I was kind of shocked, because a lot of it's not except for a few writers are, are really transfer. Slated here. Probably because a lot of the towns came here weren't that educated? And they weren't didn't have a big readership. Yeah. You know what I mean? Yeah. I mean, there's so many great, great Jewish writers. But you have a bigger readership. Right. You know, people read t speak Italian, I I've learned to you can raise intense Italian, I can't read a book write so I needed. I can read an article but I need I need a transplant a resort translation. But I've devoured veraciously all the I mean, all those Alina Ferranti books. I devoured all of them, you know, one two, three when they came out because it's interesting, you know, for me, and I've discovered so many great writers. I just did this miniseries on Burto echo. Not name named the rose from the Piedmontese area. But there are a lot of great. Generate as a not till you Ginsburg, Calvin. No prima, Levy, but prima Levy, I know all, I know every book ever written. I read some he's greatest. He's one of the I never given one of his books, people say to me. Oh my God. I never because he's not he doesn't. He writes, as a as a guy who was a chemist. Yeah. So he writes everything down in a way that you even when his worst his famous book is se, questo a warm. Oh, if this is a man, not aptly retitled, maybe not brilliantly retitled survival. And now it's here but he writes it as read survive on Auschwitz. Oh, that was great. That changed my whole perception. That's because he makes you imagine, like what would what would I have done? It's not about exactly also he sort of really like he, he, I think he introduced the idea they of transcending victimhood from within the camp that this idea we had they obviously were victims, but there was things going on within the camp on different levels on all different levels. All different level. I forgot that he wrote that change my whole brain nip me. I mean me too. I think if you are a prejudiced person I'm just saying and you were able to read ten page of that is slim book. Yeah, so pal. Like a day, you come out of that it actually confronts your inner very I don't understand how he does it. But subtle way because it's not about him. Yeah. You, you feel implicated somehow where you could be. Because he humanizes everybody everybody an end there's, there's a whole spectrum of emotions and things that people had to do out of necessity. That's right. That we're fundamentally human just to survive in an almost unsurvivable situation. He explains it as an approach laboratory of Uman behavior. Right. And he said that part of his life was really in color, and everything else has been, like, in was in black, and wow after. But he's just I you know once you have an experience without it opens. Something in your brain. Yeah. And it confronts you saying, okay. We all have some prejudices, we have weaknesses. We have fears and that guy it times when I'm upset about things whatever, you know, nine eleven elections and I'll take one of his essays out and I'll read it. Yes, I okay, what is what is most about this? You know what I mean? Like almost like the Talmud or something the bible for me. Yeah. For me, it's it is because he's not really religious, but he's a humanist writer. So like with this brain that you have that keeps growing and your interests. Keith quite what compelled you to act it initially. I, I guess I was in a family with a lot of performance my mother's brother's musicians, my other sang with them and then didn't want to, and she wanted to be designer, but she had to quit school. And my father's brothers were all very like larger than like, you know, people you would watch the movies, you would see someone like would you Robinson or lee-jay Cobb for gap or George C I would like say guys like my father. Right. You know, just like my and my father loved him vs, and I mean, I never heard anybody father, we Jake Cobb, and where you're going to say, George C sky. Yeah. My father was he was right up. That's coming nation. Exactly. Even even looks like you know, like, and I just ferocious tempers and but you, you were around it. Yeah, it was like an acting class even my parents, they how they would go moment to moment, like, not write anything pass like what is that? You know, you laughing. Oh, you think that's funny? And you, you know it was like when I went class, I was thinking, I've already been in. I have my parents, you know. And so, I mean, a lot of people I think I'm one of probably many, I don't wanna say millions, but when there was a show like the honeymooners. On that show had an honesty to it that you, if you were a little kid, and your parents had that kind of dynamic, and you will not well off. You know, my older brother Ralf used to call the show. Mommy and daddy, mommy. And daddy is on. And somehow my father didn't really look like Jackie Gleason had the same kind of slow burns. Right. But that show really there was something about it that had that honesty above it. And the dreams of doing something more. So those things affect you and I think infected a lot of comedians but also a lot of actors also a lot of actors. And so there were things you know, there are people that I love it would Robinson, you know, I mean James Cagney or Bette Davis. It's like you are already like I mean, I used to watch them, right? My parents channel whatever channel eleven so those movies I grew up with one brothers movies. Then discovered you know, Brando and then the movies came of the seventies, sure. So, like I just showed my son shampooed yesterday. How do you take house? He son. My youngest son Diego is eighteen and he liked he liked. It's a pretty great movie too. Pretty. Great movie. And I was I said that I saw that movie with my dad was so turned on. She Christie was. I think you could smoke in the movie theater. But I remember I kept looking out of like smoke was coming out of his ears and stuff. You know. Those were the inspiration while those things and then then, you know, I started seeing feeder, and we'll maybe Purdue this, and then I went to college so you went to Where'd you go to SUNY new pulse. And that's where he started acting. Yeah. And I had a lot of great great, great teachers there, because was close to New York, and I had a couple of teachers, Richard bell, and just guy. Joe Papp Ronin, this woman who went to Yale, Beverly Brum from Wisconsin via and she and they really kind of. I say, civilized educated me because I was just so raw you know, and passionate, I waited come from try I was shy. But once once you, let me do it. You know once I. Only when I was comfortable, right? Well, I mean defined that like growing up in the volatile house that you grew up in that you, you were always second banana or third banana watching it. All right. I was studying could you speak up? I mean sometimes I did. Yeah, sometimes I spoke up for my mother, right? I mean against my father. Oh, yes. Got out of hand. Yeah. So but was he boozy or wasn't boozy? But he could be temper. Yeah. Is yet his rages and men in that generation is different worlds. Yeah, it was much more. You know, women were you felt the oppression of household? I mean, especially in the culture that I was in, you know what? It was, you know. Can I just go my friends Jewish? And they were like I said, well, your mother's the your mother's, you know, she, she's the one who's the force in here, our house. It was like dad's home. How many kids were there? There were three of us older brother and older brother Ralf was his my younger, but I saw Nick somewhere recently, the airport or something. But we but, you know, everybody's everybody's house is not like normal. We, we grew up in TV reflection of family honeymoon is was like my three sons, right? Yeah. So we all somehow got this thing of like what we want to be like American, the normal people. And none of that existed. You know what I mean? I remember my father, saying that to me, I said, why can't we be like those people on television was one? That's not real not real people go fly out a windows. Kinds of stuff that, you know, I remember like funny story was someone that we moved we lived in Hollis queens. Yeah. And those an basically mostly black neighborhood. Right. My friends, all black how old were you? But we moved I was around six, those are those years of really formative years. And so, you know, was very close. We, we lived in garden, apartments, everybody whereas outside we all played on the street. It was, you know, everybody played with each other. Yes, you know who chubby checker. The crystal, you know, and then when we moved we moved to Rosedale, and that was mostly a Italian Irish little Jewish neighborhood, and I was dark and all the kids. So what I was Puerto Rican. And obviously, there were many Puerto Ricans in that neighborhood. That was kind of a term, like if you will Puerto Rican, you got you got picked on by the Italians in the Irish because it was like the Irish we had someone else to pick on and keep moving down. Yeah. You know, I was flooded. The kids would invite me over and then kind of beat me up gang up on me, and I don't know. It was around seven years old or something. And my father was home watching it. Would you Robinson, who's one of our favorite actors in the sea? We'll, we'll Florida and he played terrible captain, whose sadistic Heathrow's Barry FitzGerald sharks. John Garfield is in plano, and anyway, I came in. I was sent us. I was in tears, these, these kids throwing water balloons at me. And we're hitting me and thing, my mother was four kinds of things and I didn't know exactly how to respond to them, and my father, I came in and my father told me to be shh, quiet. He said he was watching the movie I said, I talked to. And, and he said, you know, I'm watching would you obviously I think he's fighting the entire crew. Right. Anyway, told my father's listen. These guys beating me up both of them. And, and he's and he's well how many well there's two of them. They're older than me. Beating me up and, and the vita me over. And, and then he said, you know, look look at it. What your ups, you know, he fights the entire crew when whatever he has I- bites pulls? Hey kicks anything. So he said. Well, he said, if there's more than one guy, then, then, even it out, get a stick, and I did you gotta stay. I did. And I had pretty brutal fight with, with both of them. They were pretty tough kids here. One kid I bit really badly. I on why. Where'd you want his own yet? He had to get butterflies remember, no kidding them up. I really now the kid I smacked him with his stick really head. And I just I just pounded both. I mean, I because I was emotional because they were they were like torturing and, you know, and then, of course, the parents, my mother had to go out. My was to watching the movie. Him at all. But it was so strange moving this neighborhood, where I was supposed to be with people who are supposed to be like me, and they're the ones who you know. But they didn't talk with you again. No. After that, they, they knew like the fear leave me. Let it was that out of character for you on some of. I wasn't I kind of kid. I was like wasn't a Kizer. Did it hurt your heart? Yeah. Yeah. I, I've been in some fights over the years, and I was a kid. I was always took a lot out of me emotionally, we able to make an immense. Not to them. I do. I wasn't. I saw how brutal they were. So they would they would just brutally bag. They they'll try to rip your hair ahead. So I was all right. Well, no, then if you're going to it's not you're not giving me a fair chance right now. I was trying to make friends here and they will just try it. Your kids are very brutal. Harsh really cruel. Yeah. They know how to, you know, I was saying to someone the other day I was substitute teacher at two different schools rights high school. And then the school, Our Lady Queen of, martyr, I was fifth and sixth graders. And there was a girl who is a great student. Yeah. Name is Maria. And there was a boy who had problems, I won't say his name, and but he liked Maria. But this girl was she was through the fifth grade. She was really ironic. She was great student, and so graceful and less, they've school. He he liked her, and he was emotional, because, you know, I was kind of had gotten to like me. And he, he reached out to her, and he grabbed her pigtails like he yanked her on the ground pulling her hair as if to say, like you know, I like you, but, like a caveman. Yeah. And any and she she was in pain, and I went and I had to break them up. And she never let out a sound. She just looked at him like. You know she felt empathy for him. And I couldn't believe that she was she had tears in her eyes and stuff. And she didn't like discharge on him at all. I it was such a informative moment to see some kid who had problems, and this girl who was so graceful and didn't make him even feel worse. Even though he heard her. You know, I just thought, wow, that's something I have to remember, you know, in because of as you do these scenes and you go, like it was such a psychological gesture, and her response was, so exceptional because she was emperor. She just I'll never forget how she looked at on that. Forget it. I was I thought highly of her after that I was like, wow, this person is really special. So it's got me upset or in a good way. I mean you had this, you had, it seems like a very full life to enter the, the acting world in, in in. Yeah. And at, and when you went when you were at new polity did some stuff in high school. I did that stuff at some place in highschool to Pippen and stuff like that. And I knew of did I really liked it. But the first play didn't in, in Newport was once over the cuckoo's nest, and I have little experience with being around people suffering from mental EM's. My own family down the block. Yeah. And who in your family, my, my older brother Ralf, he's still around? I'm his guardian we're, we're close on. Yeah. And he's very talented guy. And but he's had I guess diagnosed he's been diagnosed with everything from schizophrenia. Jess compulsive. And he's been in and out of institutions, and, you know, the mental health system is hard for anyone even someone like myself, who has some money to navigate your try to help him. And if my parents died was quite quite hard. But I had to go to court and everything to be as becomes guardian. And a lot of times, this state becomes the guardian because the siblings, just can't you get worn out. Yeah. It's not like these movies when is someone overcomes it, right? This is a lifelong endless. Baseball season. Yeah. That never ends. And right. I never spoke about this until I did the speech, Catherine burns at the moth here and I'm very happy. I have, and I've been involved with this community access which has helped my brother a lot. They, they, they supply housing and programs and it's a great organization, and we're trying to raise money to build more buildings now and we're doing that. So it's feels good tower. Pretty often pretty provide I take about, you know, when we walk around, and, and he's showers and stuff like that. You know, I've, I've come a long way, I t's in a more peaceful life. Yeah. Very, very happy about a real I've been through the police yet. Oh, really, I've been. Oh, yeah. The whole the whole people don't realize the families, you know, who would you have a family member? What you go through as a family. It's cars you and went this is a whole your whole life, my since I'm twelve years different phases of it so hard, it's such a hard and that's why people run for the hills. And so maybe it made me more empathetic or whatever, you know, must be like they see that much raw emotion, and that type of, of human behavior has got to be somewhat like a powerful study of something. I mean, I think we learned this. Dynamics. Whether you're an actor comedian fighter, you know, within your between your parents and your siblings, and my parents, I saw that they were, you know, my father was like a very expressive unconscious, childlike man in some ways, but you could be scary. And my mother was very quick. And we seem to have a pretty well integrated. I mean you're not you're not saying he was abusive or anything yet his moments moments, but you're consistent. I wish forgiving of that. I mean, you know, you have to kind of making a list or do a mathematical equation. How much of it is it right now is it fifty fifty? Is it seventy five? You know, he'll be was in World War, Two self post, you know suffering from his nerves. Yeah. Was traumatic stress. He was indeed day, all that stuff. But, you know I in my parents and their interplay. Yeah. I saw. The, you know, this is going to sandy Meisner repeat exercise class. You know, they, they didn't let anything pass like, you know, my mother knew how to try to defuse things and, you know, she was just very, you know, she was a appear. She had a hard life, but she had a really optimistic spirit on. I think that, that really affected me full balance. Yeah, because I really felt like she was so talented of a prison and I feel like I wish I was as talented. She was, but I whatever opportunity, I have I really feel like my mother could have done so many things, but because she didn't get certain opportunities or whatever, and I. Left. We were very very. We had a very close friendship, very close friendship. And I was really. Took me which passed away. It was a huge I had a really kind of recalibrate. My however you. That was two thousand I don't know. Maybe I was late forties. Yeah. Yeah. So but I mean but we were just you know we had a. You know, she went through a lot of things. Yeah. It was really fun person like a person who I'm glad we're able to get the share. Yeah. And you know you are. And she got to see some of your success. Yeah. And she was, you know, she was that she would be honest, with me to allow you had no chemistry like that was a fake kiss. I saw that kiss. And if I had chemistry with someone would say, oh, you know, don't let your wife see that. She knew right away. I know you know, she was like, yeah. Yeah, what time I said, I used it in a movie romance and cigarettes like I was like, well, you know, taught to be married, and you look around, you know. And it's like, you know you go through these ups and downs mothers in the car with me. And she goes so all right. So you see you're gonna go you wanna go do something else. She goes, yeah, well, what do you think you're gonna find there? It's it's not like a machine where you put in like you get Eminem's and chips. It's the peanuts are gonna come out today. It's the same peanut bag. It comes out. Doc was dying. I said, I can't believe you said that I said, so, you know, I said, yeah, but there's different colored hair. She was like it's the same thing, you're not going to find anything. What do you think you're gonna find something new? She was just like she spoke from experience. You save your marriage. So that's a good lesson to learn. Yeah. I was like, wow. So in, in the training like with an undergrad I mean like you had good. Teachers had great teachers. I had Beverly Brome joepat Perron. I had Richard bell and. Beverly Brown was was very helpful. She went to Yale and. You know, I was really, really close with her. And you know, it's funny, you people when they talk about all these different. I was thinking about it. There was so relaxed. I mean people used to go skinny dipping. And then you, you know, you'd meet people and you'd be naked. So. So. But Beverly was from the midwest, she was gay. Yeah. And she and here I was kind of big muscular, kind of Italian guy, and she really educated me, and I would do anything for her. She just and gave me parts that will hard for me and helped me in my writing. Help me what to read was the big long or so much, and she always came to all my plays up until she passed most the biggest challenge for you initially. Being confident not feeling that I was sophisticated and not being well, read enough bring I just felt I was like sensitive here, and I could feel when I was not up to snuff for being, you know, why would get nervous off and not want to embarrass my right? And then but once I got in there, then I didn't feel the same. I've always been better with one on one with teachers, not in classroom. Yeah. Unless they gave me a text or something, and then and then I studied after college with remain Robert Motoko, who was worked with sandy Meisner, and he, he, he made a huge impression on me. So when I went back to yell I was pretty well trained. I was better trained than most of the people in that class, I would say and he did a lot of theater here with the west breath and theater, but I had good training. So then I could take, you know, vocal things in the mood. Movement things there. And I got to work a lot at Yale with a lot of very talented people in who is in your classic. Charles dot Angela Bassett supreme Sabrina LeBow. And that's where you met Francis to Francis was a year ahead of me. It's I'm Joel and Joel would see me and plays. And they made movies yet. Well, when she did blit simple. I went to see that. And that's Joel. And ethan. And, and then I had done this play at the Gino Neil center right after Yale that Lloyd Richards, who was the dean of the drama school was the head of that. And I met John Patrick Shanley, and I did deigning deep Lucy and did a bunch of things, which on, including five corners, which a lot of people saw me in this kind of explosive King Kong kind of character. And that's what spikes on me. You know, he's like man I so you throw your mother out the window, you know, like I said, listen, Shanley wrote that I did it. But jolan. Ethan knew my work through that and also through theater and spike in those guys. They I mean, you've you're, you're there guy in a lot of movies. Well, I've been there out of spite and sending them a lot of spike movies. I've worked with Joel and Ethan four times. And but in the theater with Ethan, and they, they executive produced romance and cigarettes. Okay, James Gandolfini and Kozly has said he's, I know I was saying to someone the other day, Steve alien I said, you know, James James is one of those people that I still can't get my head around here that he's not here. Here he just had this. I don't know these Yoma long time. I knew I knew because I know through I eat it when she's they did streak on desire would when Alec Baldwin was Stanley. And then, you know from the sopranos. And stuff. I gotta be honest, Vardon think one of my favorite movies ever. I think it's one of the best movies ever. Well, it's a good movie. I can say that. Now you can say. Awhile to understand, like what everyone really liked about. I mean I I love doing it. I love music. I love were, I've never not had a good experience, working guy who of those movies. Yeah. When you were kid. I mean it must have been some connection. I mean, yeah, I mean show yet that was, I mean, I loved the script and everything. Not used to seeing yourself in those things. Right. But I remember lines like from the other characters right? Like, you know, then guys LA you fucked them think it a heart biggest all of the out had heart as big as the all outdoors and you fucked them think. If it was his way to take you along. 'cause you just weird seeing yourself in these things or whatever you get just I recently saw some of that. I was like this is really I mean, I knew it was brou- brilliantly made and design. What's it like working with them in terms of like what's the relationship like what did it? You really, we have always had a good, really because all these characters, or they're all different and, you know, and I mean, I think for me and they wrote Miller's crossing from me. Okay. And they wrote that scene where you about the where you get killed in Miller's crossing right now woods. Right. They wrote those things with me. But I you know, when they do that, then I try to do a lot more work and surprise them a little bit because, you know, they're doing something for you. And they're just great guys. Very meticulous. Right. Really meticulous? Really? I remember when I did Miller's crossing. I showed him a picture of Leopold and low. But I think it was low, but I said, that's how I wanna look just like that guy. And they were like all right. What about the character, no brother? That was that guy. That was just based on curly. Oh, I don't know. I don't know where I pull that I worked on the action. I don't know where, but they, they give you a lot. They say we could you shave your head? What about your teeth? Can we get really bad teeth me? Once I put the teeth in my mouth, they had to accent. And then I realized, like, I'm just going to be he's like a guy who's always suspicious. He's the suspicious guy. Tim was the innocent guy Georgia's the, the brains of the operation, so speak. So it was like three hundred monster. But I figured about the stooges. Yeah, I was, you know, it was like this way back. You know, like I would do these outrageous things to make Ethan like, you know. Yeah, because they liked that kind of stuff to, like, broad, broad, but like the big carrots. You got to kind of get that, that's a little more stylized. But still, you gotta get, you know, into the spirit of each individual thing. It's different each. One of them is a little different. And the bow ski was crazy crazy. You know. I kind of had. They saw me do something like that on stage. They and they were fascinated by that. So I thought it was going to be much beer character originally, when, you know the one I did it I was like, well, I bet make something out of it. So, but listen, that's the I, I don't know. I didn't get that movie when it first came out, but I have to say, like it took me a while to really understand the Umer. The I'm still trying to get it. Yeah. Because people love it. It's got a cult following keep watching it. And I keep like how come I can't I like you want. You have to want to be a child like kids like it. Because if you never wanna grow up, right? You wanna stay in your pajamas? Right. Jeff is the the guy like he was like, you know, it's a whole it's a whole generation he represents. He represents the underachiever, right. You know, the classic underachieve right date when they wrote it, these, like Cheech and Chong film, it would tell me I was like, but Jeff I think is just great. These just like I always, you know, got him but now I get the movie a lot and what about like the like what's the relationship with spike? How's that relationship is very, very good with spike? Was he grew up? Very not that dissimilar he grew up in talian group and black neighborhood. You know, I bust out on all black school. You know he was. So what a time we met it was weird. It was almost as if we were like you knew I, I have my own relationship with him. And I played the racist guy, the anti-racist guy, the cop, you know, I've been accused of all kinds of things we did Mel better. So I I've seen, you know, the, the white establishment response to spike from the beginning and yeah, I know him as a friend. Yeah. And I know what kind of person he is knew my mom knew my brother and. And so you know he had a big. He's feisty. But he had a big knapsack on his back. And I don't think a lot of people knew that the what the kind of he was trying to say, I can make a black film and people will go see it. Yeah. And it was that time, you know, it was after the black PlayStation homes. And, you know, he he opened up a big daddy opened up a lot of opportunities for a lot of people. But he someone I am I consider a close friend. Yeah, I'm going to maybe do another movie hopefully, and he would be like the executive producer on it because I want to been working on a movie about basically something I wanna make. But it's about like, ignorance, uh-huh. Yeah. An openness boasts. You know, because I think sometimes you see these movies, and it's like to clear between the good and the bad. Right. Does not this gray area. Yeah. Plexiglass? Well, how can a guy in the same family vote for this person or be a complete anti whatever you? Right. You know, and the other person is not that way at all. Yeah. And you come from the same errands, and I think there in lies the debate. Yeah. And not this, not this core divided. Right. Right. There's nothing that's going to happen that way. He's going to be people screaming how you want. Is it a family thing, but it's you have to do it through. Yeah. Through a family, right? Don't all the most horrible deed off Mila because he loved the Greeks the tragic tragedy here. The most ridiculous deed is done within the family. Right. Always, yeah. That is that's, that's the that's the world. That's your world view. Yeah, when you come out of it, and so something, I you know, hopefully, I'll get a chance to make you writing it. Yeah. I told it's all done in hope to do it. So that's but I think. This. This blindness that we see, right now, I think a lot of what's going on in the world has to do with our culture. I really do with America. The I think it has to do it again. That's what that books about fantasy on. You guys. It's is our culture. Yeah. And a and now it's so weird. Because, you know, when you deal with the political climate, we live in, in this particular president, there's something, you know, sad. We painfully honest about that guy being the president. Yeah. Yeah. It's shockingly. I mean he presents all the worst of us. Yeah. I mean, he listened he reality television helped him hone his persona which always had did you know him? No, my father worked for his father. Really? Yeah. And you didn't know him that well. Doing construction because my father was built here. Yeah. My brother worked for Trump as doorman, which won Nick, Nick Saint merits. He has his own, you know, but, you know, he is father, basically enabled him. He's him. But I think when being on TV all those years people's idea of him, not in New York City. Yeah. Because I don't think he could even win borough president. Right. I don't know. Maybe you could win. It's down, but he wouldn't wouldn't in queens. Yeah. And he wouldn't win and Brooklyn wouldn't win it in the Bronx. And he wouldn't win it in Manhattan. Yeah. You know, so that says a lot he's from this hometown, but people. Bought it. Yeah. For twelve years, don't forget. It was over ten years. He was the mastermind. Yeah. So that just goes to show you now, of course, the guy who created that show is not from our country. He's English created that show. So maybe the revolution refers. I don't know. But I was thinking. Wow, not American didn't do that. But yeah it's not American either. I know that I know that and I don't think I think there's something in that also. I do you see we I watched a lot of those Republican debates with my son because we thought they were entertaining. Yeah, but he he's, you know, he's a real he's a bully. Yeah. And that's what he is. He's a bully. That's why some people like, you know, look at him and said, like, wow, I just I can only think of mud wrestling as an answer to everything like you know, but like. Mariah. But that's what happens when someone's been enabled. Sure to a certain point. But what would feet what I fear about is like everything is anti like anti knowledge anti nuance. It's anti science anti nationals. I mean, the reason the thing the book, I just made the name of the rose. Yeah, that's what book is about about. You know, the guy's a man of faith, but a man of science, the guys philosopher, but he's a man of action. The guy understands the value of women even always with all these men will monks who fear in demonize women, and he understands more than anything that only power against absolutism, this isn't thirteen twenty seven and Umberto eco is a pretty smart guy is knowledge. That's the only thing you have. So if you burn those books, if you suppress those books and. Really was the Arabs who saved all his Greek literature, the translated into Arabic, and then was re translated back into the Latin, that, that's the only thing you have against the they, they call it the anti Christ. But, you know, against any form right and power. And now they don't have to burn the books you just offer. A lot of alternative information that seems to make sense that seems to make sense. So I think that is the big issue that if you're against, you know, the power of knowledge. I mean, why do people when you go to a doctor? You want the doctor to have gone to medical school. Yeah. Why would I ever listen to a politician when it comes to the atmosphere? Yeah. Now I'm going to listen to the science. Scientists. Sure, you know what I mean. So I mean they're the biggest actors imaginable. I mean when I look at politicians, I go, wow. Have you ever played one? I wont playing kind of a politician now in this, Nepal. Convene, he's the, the rabbi who's the, you know, he's he collaborates with the with the Lindbergh, he's like a politician rile. But, like a lot of people, they believed in America should be 'isolation, as but I when I watch politicians. I think about what is the believability react like I can tell you anything. I could do all these things. Yeah, but could I can I do any of those things. Right. I mean, and you see how hard it is even with the brightest people when they reach out and other people say, well, no, we just we're not doing anything. I mean look what happened with Obama. It's like soon as he reached out. They were like no. We getting anything is this sort of amazing to see how desperately people want to believe in how easily they do believe if it matches up with the particular emotions while they allow themselves. They allow themselves to just be tender is I think you tend to, and then you're going to be put right on the flame. Yeah. Yeah. You're gonna be you're going to be cooked and you're going to and he's going to eat you. I just hope that it doesn't turn out that people start attacking each other people who are almost on the same side. Yeah. You know, I fear for that to say you gotta get unite. Cited for the overall the best possible outcome and good Miano. And, and as I got like like, when you do like these sounds like these are like, even that the, the night of was a fairly provocative. I try to do stories when I can have that has you manage and has Alexis because all these issues are complex. There's no. You know, black and white good and evil. No, it's, it's so simplistic. And I think once again, our culture, loves to, you know, they always say, well, the character has to change nobody changes nobody changes. They can grow that can enlarge. Right. But your basic nature is, is kind of set. Yeah, you can make different choices. That's right. Yeah. And I, I feel like sometimes pop culture could help that in a way by just getting people to reflect a little bit here. And I mean you can do your little thing you know. Yeah. I mean I don't like when people tell me who to vote for and stuff. I try to study you eat about say who actually could get something done. Right. You know, maybe they will maybe they won't. They will. So it's what's it like being a father of like two, you know, two boys one's twenty eight one's eighteen and, you know, like to leave the world, a better place now turning out there on one of my, my older boy, works for DC, comics, and my younger son is going to go to, to, to college next year. Oh, yeah. With the interesting. He's really good at math. He's really didn't history. He doesn't know yet, you know my listens the artist and so he doesn't know but he's a he's a smart guy when you do all these characters I mean does it like obviously, they're coming from, but you're such a thoughtful guy. I mean how how much of an impact has you getting into the heads of these characters like evolved, you, well, you make a list, sometimes what you have in common. What you don't have income in, you know, and was that something you do bear? Sometimes I do. Sometimes it does it. Well, this is what I need to work on them. Some, you know, these things I understand this. I don't. I once in a while. You just connect with everybody. Like if you're the director with porn the night of wood, Richard price and Steve zaillian. We had no question about the sensibility of it, the, the world of it, and I interviewed so many lawyers, and some really successful lawyers, and just as research research, when Kenny Montgomery looks like a dearest Elba. He's. Yeah. He's a star defense attorney was a prosecutor. He helped delineate what he goes through in a trial for me. And I saw him interview people, and little by little you, Frankenstein, it some, and then sometimes something occurs, and you're like, wow, the great thing about that character. He's like an every man because he's the guy with all the potential in the world, but he doesn't have the stomach. To be successful. And that's a lot of very talented people already have that. In that sense. They don't have the stomach. Some people just can't maybe hold someone's life in their hands or they can't take the punishment of rejection right now security. Yeah. And my business fear. You have to be really sensitive when you work at the same time, you, you have to have a thick skin people going to say, you know, not like you and I don't like this, and then like, and it's it is kind of personal. You know, you like well is said, I'm you know, I mean, I've had critics write about my face over the years. I mean, not lately, but when younger like God really, you know, it was like I have a lot of girlfriends. I said, you know, girls like me, but he's guys are writing about me, like then I realized there. If frigging problem zipper, my problem have had problems with directors. I mean, listen, there were a lot of directors, I would work with anytime and I got to work with maybe once but yeah, sure I've had problems with you know, now, I know how to you know, I mean I worked with Michael Cimino and Billy freaking young actor. So I was freaking, I know he's he's, he's pretty wild. So those movies were different kind of, you know, a lot of cocaine driven in a roll type of idea. You know, I have an army. I was shocked doing those I was like, wow, people that was living in LA. What was that was this is? So this is I much rather work would would people who are passionate, but who are gentle has Redford loved working with them. Loved working with them. I we would each own who I loved working with them. I mean he was great. I was on that movie. I was the only active for a long time. Yeah. And so I spent a lot of time with. Yeah. So I've got to work with him again. But I, he was really, we really got along really well, and you do any do, like smaller movies, too, like with people, I saw that movie landline. I thought it was great. Yeah. I like that movie. I mean, you wanna give different people, I work with young filmmakers, you know, and you never know you like directing I do when I'm with if enough time. Yeah. And when I'm with great, you know, but some of the movies, I've made a very very much diversity. Dear. To me. Yeah. I mean, and you know, a I'm proud of the films on me. I'll be to make this new one. Yeah, thank you. Thanks for talking to me. Okay. Thanks for having me. That worked out. Okay. That was me.

NEW: Stephen Fearing | Singer-Songwriter | Welcome To The Music

"Then we're in business. That is awesome. That is a beautiful shirt thank you. You're welcome where are you? I'm in Toronto. I'm in my bedroom. My here's Greg Kolev. Second that we get him in here. Greg hates it what I wear shirts like that. So let's let's tease. Greg forbid here. Okay hold on correctly you there. Hey Greg Hi Greg. Nice areas are good. Thanks Greg what do you think of Steven Shirt? Yeah it's very cool shirt. Oh he was telling me that you'll like these so you don't like it when he wears them. I like it when I wear them. He wears you. Were being set up there my read. What the heck high the following podcast is brought to you by radical road brewery. The best craft beer in the heart of Leslie. Bill find him at eleven. Seventy seven Queen Street East. That's radical road brewery. Hi My name's Stephen. Fearing I am a Canadian musician. Songwriter and Bread Baker now and welcome to the music. Thanks for joining us. I've been you're the one 'cause I've been going to the local grocery store once a week looking for it's a question. I think it's easier asking that. I think it's your first issue. I'm not a baker but there's no more east no there is not Harris everybody everybody's making sour dough. That's why yeah so. I think that will apparently go on Amazon or any of those sites. You'll notice a distinct lack of bread making paraphernalia. Because it's all it's either ziggurats all sold. There's been this is like that and flour and east yes right. I'm wondering if I could trade toilet paper now. Some sort of barter deal. I figure I see the cartoon about that. Might that might work. Stephen where where we calling you at where are you? I'm in Victoria. The islands where my wife and daughter and I moved in two thousand fifteen and lucky us we managed a it was like an action movie. Where the big metal doors closing and we slide in underneath that was just getting into the real estate market before it went vertical. Yeah we were very lucky excellent and now I'm counting my lucky stars like I can't believe that I get to sit this out here because it's a pretty place to be. Yeah what are you know we? We always asking him. And I'm sure you've told a million people the same answer but What are what are you doing to sort of? I guess past the time would have been up to these days. Well baking sour dough bread. But that's it's true but it's kind of a joke because I think everybody in their dog is doing that too Just you know it's like my wife and I moved here in. Twenty fifteen and the only way we could afford to buy in this market was to buy a seriously beat up. Hasn't had much love for a long long time a rooming house which were slowly bringing back to being a single family dwelling so there's an endless amount of jobs but I figured that if at the end of this if there is an end yeah do this whole thing. I I think we're all starting to realize that it's not going to be like somebody flicks a switch back on and hey we're back. It's going to be some version of what we recall but anyway Whenever that is I don't ever have to say again. Oh I'm so busy because I'm renovating my house. It'll be dude you had a year you do and so I'm I'm doing it. I'm getting all that stuff done as as much as I can. And you know ten thousand steps today you know just like I'm trying not dwell too much on the complete cessation of my career. Sure it's it's interesting. It's interesting too because like in terms of behaviors criminal. I've talked about before like it. It's interesting the changing behaviors of the people. You talk about getting the renovations done in the house where we normally host this face to face is in a POB. Leslie Dill Call Radical Road Brewery and and had to put out a notice today and I've never seen them do this before they're a microbrewery of of a macro breweries and to put a notice today on Were sold out. We're going to have to shut down for two days to restock so interesting is like you know. I. I don't go to the beer store anymore. I'm just buying directly from my local micro Right is change. I'm yeah yeah you think about that. And what do you think that's gonNA translate beyond this like I hope? So but what do you think? Yeah I really hope so too And I think that I I know that somewhere In many somewheres people are keeping track of data. Because if you ever wanted convincing arguments for things like A universal living wage. And all of these other things that have been you know. The sort of extreme radical laughed have been spouting about for a long time. Well we're living at right now and I. I just hope that people are keeping track of stuff like this because when this is all moved to the next phase. Let's say 'cause I don't think when it's all over is really the right way of looking at it but when we moved to the next significant phase of this. I really do hope that we all walk away with with with some valuable lessons as a one of my favorite writers is a a woman named Elizabeth Gilbert and. She wrote a book that I just love called big magic which is for any of the creatives out there. It's it's really worth reading. But I heard it being interviewed recently. And she said we've all had our collective souders pulled out of our mouths and now we have been deal with it without 'cause I'm a I love my job. I been onstage since I was. I Dunno eighteen nineteen and I love that aspect of it. I love the travel. I love all the parts of it and it's all gone and so how do you like suck it up? Buttercup move moving onto something else you know and maybe that maybe it comes back. Maybe a version of it comes back. I certainly hope so. I mean that's that's what I do but In the meantime you know you can't dislike swan about in your house code talking to a man who is sitting on his bed thank you but you know there's there's gotta be some things to come out of it and it's not lost on me that learning to sit still is that status. That is interesting. Way To phrase that Are you know besides home renovations and making sour dough are are you are you? Writing is is. This sort of time is an introspective time for you. I'm curious about sort of your creative juices. What you're doing well not yet but I. I suspect that that will be the next sort of phasing made Because I think as it slowly sinks in at first you're like okay. I have had to cancel and then now I've cancelled a tour and Ma maybe most the summer's gone. Oh maybe I'm not gonNA work till next year so the slow realization of how this is going to be and and one of the things that I've been thinking about is when they do say okay. We're allowing them. Gatherings of over five hundred people are over. Two hundred and fifty people were allowing that to happen again. There's going to be the stampede of artists from from the local I play. You know the the wing joint down the road to Coldplay everybody's GonNa come hurtling out of the their cupboards going me me me over here and It's going to be it's going to really. We're all going to have to get creative. Because normally people release stuff staggered twelve months and some of US overly strategic like Independent artists tend to stay away from sort of December November December October November December. Because it's leading up to Christmas and the market is swamped with big big big artists. And so I tend to release in January February march when things are just starting to come around. Wake up again. But what's going to happen whenever this does happen? I suspect that there's going to be kind of like A. It's like a race or something. Where they you know the starter pistol and we all start running like Libya and some people have some people have of their releases right now until they release and support right so yeah it's just everything is so unknown and so so to answer your question. I do suspect that Even though I had just released an album and while with black kings and on my own. I suspect that I'm going to have to consider a another release somehow. Just be some starting something new again. I don't know one thing. I was going to mention so when Kelly and I got together coming up on twenty years ago we were merging our CD RACKS. Mine was followed through fighters and Linkin Park and and Calloway's Keller's more on the Fokker side Roots decide remember looking at CD's going lackey roadking. Like I know the name. But I and Stephen King know the names of Tom Wilson. But I didn't know the music and since then over twenty years. I had the pleasure to see you play with with Tom a numerous times as well as seeing you you personally a number of times with Jennifer and Kellyanne Conway and a few others at Hugh's room so you know we talk about. What's on the flip side? What do you? What do you think is on the flip side for live venues like that? Like is it going to be this deluge of live shows or? Are we going to scale up to scale down when you think? I know I know some of them aren't GonNa make it. And that's really heartbreaking. Because there was already a dearth a lack of live venues so some venues aren't GonNa make it but I also don't know if I think there's going to be some artists who are just GonNa go. You know what I'm done like this was the last step for me because there's always people that are just barely making it so I do think that there's going to be a real hunger for for live music and I know that in the industry people are talking about live. Streams. And how are we doing ourselves a disservice or not by live streaming in terms of our people going to get used to this kind of a medium and personally I don't maybe a younger generation but my generation my demographic? I don't think that they're I think when the opportunity to go back to a live venue and sit in the dark drinking a beer with other people when that happens. I think everybody's GonNa WanNa do that really badly. I I know I I wanNA play to a live audience that I can see and all that stuff you know I just saw. Somebody sent post a thing of boy. I miss for really overpriced beer at concerts in his leg. Gap a live. The live concert thing it can't you can't just you can't replace it at all. I really don't believe can think that's GONNA come back. Yeah do you yourself. Outside of the Times there were now. Do you find yourself going to a lot of life shows. You enjoy that experience yourself as of you know. I don't actually do a hell of a lot because I was on stage so I mean this is really strange for me to. There's usually periods in my in my touring life where I might have two months where I'm not to Roau but not much It's usually I'm out for two or three weeks and I'm home for two weeks and then I'm out in out in. That's the way I really liked to do it. Occasionally I might go up for two months like if I'm going to Europe and then I'd come home And I might not be back out again for a month and a half. But after two or three months it starts like start to go a bit squirrelly. So normally I'm I'm I'm on the road so much that when I come home all I wanna do is be home but you know occasionally like if if somebody who really really want see comes through they'll make an effort to go see them and there's always the popping into venues to see friends when you're on the road but yeah it's it's a really different experience for me actually usually see the most music in the summer when I'm at the festivals and then I can wander around see other people's sense you've put together. You're starting this new series Weekly series called under the hood. Yeah tell me about that. What's what's that all about will. That was Jennifer's idea and We were sort of at I the impetus because the first thing I had to cancel was a a an album release in my hometown in Victoria. Oh asking a little It was right down to the wire and about Three days before the concert of four days they announced the the no gatherings over two hundred fifty and I was like okay. Well that's the end that because we're kind of waiting for definitive word from somebody And that was it and so the first thing I did was I went up to Dunkin Where the The Duncan showroom is and they've been broadcasting their live shows at tiny venue but they've been broadcasting with. I think four five. Usb cameras from that it can control from the back of the room so they've been broadcasting on youtube for years so I went up there and played into an empty dark room with my friend. Terry David Mulligan talking to me And and coming in like kind of zoom conference so he would ask me questions about the album and I would play songs. Now was the first thing and then it was like well. What do I knew after this? Show up every week and play a concert. Like that. Just seems weird. So we're we did a couple of those and then we were kind of cast. We did a by request and we did a covers one and then I thought I don't know if I wanNA keep doing this because I don't know how this is. I don't know where this goes. One of the things I mean have haven't answered to question yet but I will promise I can talk on legs off a donkey but one of the things that that that people are talking about is the fact that if I'm on I find live streaming once a week. Let's say People who normally would only see me play a show. Maybe every twelve months. If I'm lucky you know then bid come to see my show when I'm in Toronto and I don't go back to Toronto again for twelve months. So they saw me once maybe twice and they might see you over a period of five years. Maybe three four times Max. If they're hardcore fans and suddenly they're seeing every week you know it's kind of like it starts to is. You Never WanNa be predictable. And I believe in smoke and mirrors and I believe and the Glamour of performance and there is even even when it's just union acoustic guitar and a naked bulb in the crudest folk club you could ever think of like the dingy basement folk club in you. Name it Even so there's still a bit magic. Yeah there's a there's a glamour to it and and I I miss that and so the idea with under the hood was to do something that I would never do. Live which is basically place on and talk about it for however long you know they some of them clocking for like an hour and a half. You have to be pretty hard core it. Like it's it's it's I don't WanNa hear me Jabbering on about my song and talking about why I wrote this image and rhyme schemes and all that stuff then this is not for you but if you do like that kind of thing and you're like my stuff then hopefully it's interesting but that's that was the idea so something that normally you would never see me do unless you unless. I was doing a songwriting workshop. Yeah but that was the idea. Just come up with something different. Yeah that's I I WANNA do a little bit of that now Okay because I read a I listened to. I listened to yellow jacket the other day. The song and I read a little bit. I I saw a quote somewhere that it was based on these energy drinks or something way off. Dogo you're very close their their little Truckers friends. You can buy them. They're legal. It's legal speed. It's basically it's like an energy drink in the pill so it's it's God knows whatever's in that stuff A lot of caffeine things like that. That's what yellow jackets are and they. They were marketed. So that they have like a council that's yellow and black and they're called yellow jackets and you know they sting yet and you. You know you take two of those if you're driving for eighteen hours and you're like panned you know as you go down the highway. So that's where that started as crazy. I was this like an all the time thing is traveling across the country from Gig to Gig Mill. This was. This was a one time. Deal and Tom. Wilson is responsible. Of course of course we were driving common. I were driving back from Nashville to. I was still living at the time. He lives in Hamilton. Obviously we're driving back up and it's a fourteen hour drive so it's it's just long enough that you probably shouldn't do it in one shot but you know around our ten yet which is like most people can do a ten hour drive. And you're thinking God we're you know like I'm so close I'm not gonNA pull over now I'm GonNa keep going so you and anybody who goes back and forth. Lana musicians go back and forth from Toronto to National Day. Would this would be a regular occurrence. Do this drive in one shot. And it's just it's dull. It's the dullest ever not like driving through the mountains or even across the prairies. It's just sort of shorn cornfields and grey industrial building business sites and it just. It's just really dull most of it not all of it. Some of the upstate. New York's but anyway we stopped at a truck Stop Wilson. Disappears COMES BACK WITH MYSTERY. Meat Sandwiches. Chocolate bars caffeinated water. Which is weird American thing kissing water caffeine and yellow jackets these little pill so he was at the counter. I went while have lows and so he as I'm driving. He opens one of them to see what it looks like. And it's like a kind of white gritty stuff. And so he's he basically says let's just divvy them up so we're giving these things up. Don't try this at home. Kids then and we then the chocolate bars and then drank the caffeinated water and basically started talking very quickly at the same time. Put the car in cruise control and just how many albums were written. We were listening to rough mixes of. I can't remember which album was but it it was one of the early records and Anyway there's a sort of the the the emotional the emotional toll that it takes on you when when it's over the the rush of caffeine it's heartbreaking. It's dislikes screeching brakes. It's like Wylie Coyote going off the cliff and going like this and then plummeting so That's we we'd been sort of talking about this song and Al character named Yellow Jacket as we are driving and at one point. I look at Tom and I said how are you feeling? And he said. I'm feeling kind of emotional. S Larry because well if he tells the story he says it was because this sort of the the post caffeine rush was pretty intense and And so that's where the song was born and and driving through upstate. New York towns that are so hollow it out and bleak the downtown is dead and boarded up and everybody's living on the outskirts around the TGI. Fridays and the lows. And it's just like wow it's it's quite a so. I imagined his character and and and Tom and I actually started writing the song together but he wanted me to sing the whole thing in a falsetto and that's where we parted company. That's how how is that like for you because you work the blackened Ronan kings atomic call and you do your own stuff like what is the difference for you when it comes to songwriting between Rainier your own and Claverie. It's it's a well the difference in writing your own collaborating his. You know it's when you're writing your own you sink or swim on your own. You know you make all the decisions and you can. You can chase your little You can chase your your rabbit down the rabbit path at will when writing with somebody else you may disagree on certain things. They may have the the bull by the horns in which case you back him up. It's it really depends. Who's hot that day and who's got a strong idea? Sometimes Co writing is about just GonNa make tea and playing the same court progression over and over and over so that the other person can hear it So that's that's one of the big differences. But writing for Blackie as opposed to myself. I don't really differentiate I know call does I think Tom does. But both of those guys are I would say. There are a lot more prolific than me. I tend to write like the kings and king as King of this town. This the most recent black record I was under the impression that we were getting together to do some co writing. And then we're going to get together again and do some more co writing and then we're going to get together and maybe demo and it turns out that the First Co writing session was the only one and the next time we got together to record. So Oh i suddenly realized because what happens with the RODEO CASES. If you don't have enough material that's fine. Those guys both have loads of material always like. Oh you don't have any that's fine. We'll we'll just use one of mine and so you you better bring your songs and and there's a very usually a small window of time from When you hear about it till when it happened so I find myself sitting down you know hurriedly writing songs and it seems to work from me that way. It seems to be okay to just sit down go. I have to write a song today because I'm flying to Toronto tomorrow and I need something to put on the table and so I sit down and I start doodling and I get a song that seems to be my way of writing as opposed to the. It's nine o'clock in the morning. I'M GONNA go to my desk and sit down and write which allow a lot of people do it. So it's it's whatever I get is what I bring to the table and it's only a couple of times where the band has had You know or nobody ever says no but you can kind of get a sense that they're not really got interested in the song but that only happens occasionally and everybody's like sorry. No I was GONNA say so. It sounds like again. I've seen the ban live. It's a ban but it the way you describe it having been in a band myself with damage for like an extended period of time on non like it sounds like I don't I don't mean to downplay this but like a project like you're bringing your your pieces to the project for the band versus like living together constantly and fighting in hammering it. I would fight it out but I don't know is it is. It is different. It's it's really. It's hard to put your finger on it because it's definitely much more much more intimate than a project but it's not the sole thing that we do and so. I know that if Well this is a good example this this sort of locked down that we're all in. I'm not on the phone talking to my bandmates. Every day. In fact I might not speak to them for two months. But they're always in the back of my head and I know that when the time comes it'll happen really fast whatever. It is Okay we're GONNA get together and we're gonNA play show so suddenly a week ahead or two weeks ahead. As soon as date is announced will start talking very quickly. Buccal logistics of it. And it's kind of we're at a point now where twenty five years. We've been doing this for twenty five years an early days. There was more socializing We like each other's company a lot and we have a really good time when we get together. But it's always around playing it's always around recording and that's it We don't socialize outside of that. And even as I say that I think that's a bit weird but I mean Thomasson Hamilton Collins down in Nashville Johnny Gary Toronto. So was guys see each other a little more often but still everybody's got their own other things going. On Wilson's he's writing another book. He's painting like a fiend. Everybody's got like Collins got an an incredible studio in his backyard. Nelson national now they just built the Thousand Square Foot Cathedral. Ceiling purpose built building. And so you know everybody. Everybody's busy and everybody's got their own things on the go and when we get together it's really intense as really fun. We laugh a lot and all the other complications that you would expect from band. That's been together. Twenty five years in the youngest member is fifty seven. You can imagine you know it can get. You can get a interesting. It has especially common the band of the Tom. Is You know the soberest member of the band. Now think about that for a moment. Yes yes. Tom has been drive for fifteen sixteen years. Wow so when you first met like that must have been a a trip you know. Here's the stories about Tom. And his his His old rock band and over the heavy lifestyle. And then it's like okay. Let's let's do a roots tribute thing really as it started out with like. How does that happen? I remember very early early early. Early early. We've just started recording higher Which is the first album and I had a GIG and Bam Bam Center and Tom was playing in bands at wild. Bill's paddock right. So there was the two worlds I was. I was in the barracks Margaret Greenham Theater Playing Solo. Tom Down at at wild bill's paddock with junk house. Yeah and he comes to see me play. He comes to see my show and then of course because he's playing a club date. I think his show started at ten and mine was pretty much done by then so then I go down to see his show and were sitting on the ground in the Jan in the broom closet with mops and stuff around us. That was where the band's hung out at while bills and Drinking Vodka out of a bottle and Tom puts his arm around he goes. I'M GONNA be your bad influence now. God bless of can't even you know he's I a drink. It has to be careful if you eat too much gluten. You know like so. Yeah who's going to be the bad influence now you know. I sneak over with the loaves of bread. Come on but you know everybody everybody would. He made it through their addictions and weirdness. Which I are band is is so close because we've seen each other through death. Divorce rehabs You name it and We we all have a lot of respect for each other and patience for each other and a great fondness for each other. Because I mean speaking personally I get to be banned with with well. Four the greatest musicians that I'm ever gonNA run across and creative spirits. You know the rhythm section are one of the greatest in the World Johnny Diamond Gary Craig unbelievable on fantastic musicians and Richard Bell who was our our other member. Who's been gone now? Many many years you know he was. Richard Bell was in the Hawks. Ronnie Hawkins Band after the band left he he was in the ban for awhile. Play with Bob Dent. Like you know this all been in the Emmylou Harris's band on has toured with Bob Dylan and been his guitar player. Like I get to be in a band with this incredible players. I get to learn so much right from being beside them as opposed to you know everybody else who watches. I got to be on stage with him so I learned a lot. I get a lot out of it. It's great what has kept you guys together after you guys did a tribute to Willie P Bennett and was twenty. Five years ten albums. What is it about these group of musicians from different backgrounds doing their own projects that y? You guys'll come together I I don't know I mean I do know but All of the reasons I could give you would just be Kinda like it's a long list more than one thing but it's the old cliche. There's there's chemistry. There really is chemistry one of the jokes. We make his Colin and my our job is to keep Tom. Happy and his job is to keep us laughing which he does. I mean I've been in twenty five years. I've heard somebody story so many times. And he can still make me like fall down laughing. Which is amazing. He's very very funny man. And everybody's very There's there's lots of love. We were all raised by our mothers and I think that has something to do with it too. I think that there's a underneath those hairy crusty exteriors beats some pretty serious hearts. So that's that's how we get along. I WANNA I wanNA talk about like your formative years bit. How old were you when you went to Ireland? My mother and I disagree on this but I think six and I've actually written at into a song so officially I was sufficiently yes. She's says I was seven. What if she knew? And how long were you there for? I was there still. I was seventeen so give or take eleven years formative years highschool all that and was. I read somewhere that I noticed it was on your website so I said Okay. People know about this then You you come out of Ireland. It focus on roots music. You to comes out. The same apparently went to school with these dudes and they start off as a punk band. Yeah we'll some curious. The influences in Ireland. That comes these two different types of music that it was a great school that we all went to which was a kind of unique School in Ireland. It was called a comprehensive and there was no corporal punishment and there was no mandatory sports which Ireland was of course for so long was very very much under the the thumb of the Catholic Church and There was a real classicism and the Protestant Catholic thing obviously was pretty intense in the south. Not as much as in the north at all But still there were kind of categories. That people were in. It was very hard to get out of of your little category that. You're you know middle class working class. Upper Class catholic-protestant Blah Blah Blah And this comprehensive was kind of a breath of fresh air because a lot of people from different classes and different walks of life ended up there and There wasn't this huge arts program but there were some progressive teachers. They're on one. In particular a guy named Donald Moxham. He encouraged me a great deal. But I know that he was really important in history because he gave them access When they were they were the hype. I that was their first band feedback or maybe it was the other way round. I can't remember one of the other. And then they became you two and whilst they were in that sort of very baby ban phase he made sure that they had access to the music room so they could rehearse and you know it's it's all you need when you're young musician is one person to take you seriously and to say going to help you. And so they played the school I was from the early on. I remember one of the most important records in my mother's record collection was Gordon lightfoot. Greatest Hits my personal theory is that we are influenced by parents record collection as much as anything and so her collection was pretty interesting and lightfoot greatest hits was in there and you know when. I pulled the guitar off. The wall debt was hanging there as an ornament and started trying to figure out how to play. Ed's I gravitated to lightfoot greatest hits and my sister who left ahead of me gave me Willie P Bennetts Hobos Taunt. Which is my connection into black in the radio But so I was sort of into the singer. Songwriter thing whereas what was happening at school and with bands like you too and there were several bands that came out of that school But it was sort of the new wave thing and so post punk still punk energy but new wave was seventy nine was that was the year the ground The Ground Zero for punk. They say so. I laughed the I guess it was punk more than anything New Wave would have been later. I left in seventy nine but it was a time when when people were picking up guitars and there was no rules anymore. You didn't have to be like one of the band's on top of the pops which is what we all watched in the near like hearing this sort of and generation There was coming out and that sort of that the bridge between the punk and the new haven. Yeah there was a band called the other band that was happening beside you to was the virgin prunes and I remember seeing both bands and a third band playing at This the church hall. So the MOMS and dads are investable making tea and to give to the kids and were in their pogo ing around in the dark with black lights with these these young punk bands and the Virgin prunes like. I don't know if you ever saw those guys like they were. They were like the New York dolls. But there were Dublin. Had they were way more radical and punky than Than Youtube. But you to you know they had this great frontman Bono Paul Houston and even then even he was a high school student and he was he was a good front man so that was all happening. I just didn't have the wisdom introverted I was. I was like being in a punk band. I just couldn't even figure it out and I couldn't Afford Electric Guitar. I had an acoustic guitar. And you couldn't really clay. You Know God. Save the Queen on the Guitar. But you could play. Russia ever sleeps right near you. So Neil Young has made it appear to make a second hold on before I jumped on. Did he pay you to bring that up? I'm just asking every every time. Every time he comes up he just calls the interview. And that's it and we're over I. It's it's I think because I had an acoustic guitar was sort of steered that direction but I also think I really had an affinity for the singer songwriter. Kind of thing you know that. That seemed to be more interesting than most of my friends were doing shirt. When did you know that you wanted to be a musician? Or we'll know I wasn't. It wasn't a decision of. I'm going to do this but more of a realization. I am doing this I had this fantasy that I was going to join the navy. The British Navy. That was like when when they appearance. Say What are you going to do when you could school? And I'd say I'm going to join the navy. Now would shut them up but really. I had no idea what I was going to do. And I had this vague fantasy of being in the navy band so I just sort of took out a went But you know I had no clue about it like I. I left Ireland's In seventy nine I ended up in the states for a couple of years and all the while I was doing all the things that you do washing dishes. I worked at a Deli. I did a number of jobs and the music slowly slowly slowly was was Kind of running parallel with everything else. So at this one place the Malt shop in Minneapolis. I would dishwasher Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday and then I would play in the restaurant You know forty five on fifteen off Friday and Saturday and then I go back to being a dishwasher so they were kind of coming along side by side and then there was the point where you go and this was many years later where you just stop doing your day job and throw your lot in one hundred percent with music and that's all is a very scary scary point because e kind of now. It's it's a lot more serious. I you know you know what I'm talking about. It's just all suddenly you're making a living from it. It's it's way more serious deal and the stakes are much higher and the pressure is high and all that stuff. But I've been lucky I've I've had very I've had people that believed in what I was doing enough to help me. And that's kind of what you need and so you've seen the progression from albums albums. You know people releasing albums people buying albums listening albums front to back and today where some people are just releasing dripping song every month. Whatever you know how. How has that impacted the way your releasing music it has has hasn't yet and it's it's almost Would the conversation. Every time I make a record we have a conversation. We Jennifer and I- Jennifer Manager. Is this the last time that we do this format or it still is there? It's it's more of a niche format. But they're still my demographic which is roughly people in their mid forties up to people in their seventy s are come into my shows They're still buying records It's it's it's the curve is getting real state now I just played shows in Denmark and Fat was startling. Because it's the very first show I played was in a theater Three hundred seater. Maybe a hundred and eighty people to two hundred something came. I played with his Danish band. Who were backing me up. It was great. It was amazing. Beautiful Theater full. Pa and lighting and sound tax and monitor tax and the whole deal and it was so fantastically Danish and beautiful and APP. They wanted an encore. That another three encores. They've got us back so I'm thinking that's case we are going to sell some merchandise tonight and I stand by the Merck table and everybody goes take us so much is lovely. And they're all walking out. The door was like an MC. Who's the guitar player I work with? You said Yeah Man. Sorry I tried to tell you people. Nobody buys visa. They all stream like oh so sad and so much thought is out in that part of the world. Yeah Yeah and so whether it comes to North America to the same degree the writing is on the wall and so I don't know I I love making records. That's the problem. I like writing a batch of songs and then going recording them all at once and then it there still a need to. Have you know your new album? Because it's kind of like the artwork for the tour and the story for the tour and it's your calling card. It's the it's the thing that you plunk down on the table and say I'm back and without that I don't really know how this works in my genre. Yeah for everybody other artists. It's it's a different deal for sure because they're already existing in different realm than I am. You know I'm not a youtube artist in that way so I don't I don't know I don't know how it's GonNa how cloud your your first album was on cassette way way back in eighty six. You've talked a little bit about You know finally quitting your your day job Between Eighty six and ninety five when you was ninety five first general nomination. Don't remember okay. There's been so many of them to my website. Well my my. My Research Assistant says ninety five weeks ago. Were you still working where you were used to like? A working man back then. I hit my day job. The yellow tape came out. I still was light worked at livestream in Vancouver which was a health food store so I was like loading the the bins full of rolled oats and stuff. And I kept that up until I know say late eighties and then I focus solely on music. I lived in Vancouver until ninety two and then I moved Ontario and by then I was you know completely committed to this one way or the other but yes so be somewhere in the late eighties. I I quit my day job such as it was what. What does being a Canadian? What is a Juno nomination? I'm sure it's a very important What is it? What is it do for a free musician's career? What did he do for years when you first got your first nomination? I know you've won a couple of them. What does it do when you first get nominated? I honestly I don't think it legitimises to a degree They're they're strange things awards for music because it's art so get say you know whether this is better than that but there is a thing. there's definitely a thing where you have. It's it's kind of like having a letters after your name. You know whatever. I don't know why I thought of. Ob That's awesome. But you know what I mean. It's kind of like a it. Connotes a certain amount of something. It doesn't necessarily mean that you've put in your ten ten thousand eight hundred thousand hours but it does mean that somebody thought you were good And to the to the people out there that don't know who you are. It can be kind of like where you can sort of. Put Your cards on the table and say well. This is who I am so from that aspect it is definitely a positive thing Aside from that so much of it is political it really is political and and so you know how much of that really matters. I don't know because you're already kind of preaching to the choir or you're already hanging out with the cool kids and so if you get to wear a badge that says I hang out with the cool kids. Does it really matter. It's it's it's a mixed thing you know when you don't get one and you've been nominated a lot of it feels weird and I went through that for years and years. I was jokingly referred to as the Susan Lucci of Canadian folk music which I didn't even know who she was. I guess she was a soap opera. Star who never got whatever their awards are never one kept getting nominee yet. So I got nominated like lots and then finally I won two of them and both times that I won once was on my own for yellow. Jack Yeah I think it was for that I'll and then Blackie one And neither time was. I actually had the award show. Maybe if I just don't go I have better odds because that is so far. What's happened and nominated this year? No just kidding I just because nobody's GonNa be so. There was the one that just that just happened. I missed that because my album came out so my album is coming out for this next cycle. So we'll see I don't know maybe there will be Juneau's next March doesn't look that good right now. Now no no. It doesn't so so what does success like. How do you Heidi determine what success is? Is it just that you have the ability? Continue doing it or is is there. Unit sold is our trophies crowd size. What is what does that mean to you for me. It's just the ability to keep Which when you're young and you're starting out in this. You get a lot of get a lot of hot air blown up your skirt now in you get a lot of a lot of a lot of bullshit is is whispered in your ear and you get a lot of people saying things to you like. Why aren't you more famous? Which is such a weird question like how do you know? What do you mean such a weird conversation? But I had a very good friend of Mine Gary Crystal who was the founder of one of the founders Vancouver Folk Festival and is it a wise man and he sat me down at his dinner table. One night because I was wanting about. I don't know it was something I should have. I haven't I fill in the blank. And he said Dude although he'd never say dude but he basically said look man. You have a car. You have a rental apartments. You have food that's it. That's all you get. Stop Stop thinking about this stuff because it will drive you mad and it will and again going back to my one of my My Gurus Elizabeth Elizabeth Gilbert this great book that she wrote called Big Magic. She says in that book. You have no control over whether people like this stuff or not an adult like you. Don't it's it's not up to you and so there's a great freedom in that which is to just let go of that and if you can afford to keep making the work because the work is the whole point. The the the the songs that playing all that stuff. That's the reason to do it. And if it makes you have money that you can afford to keep doing it then you are successful then that the two things that you need have come together and that's success and there is there. Is this tiny sliver of artists. That are making big bucks. And then there's a huge slew of artists that are not actually able to hang on that are that are just clawing at the poverty line and Inbetween little margin of artists. That are making enough money to continue to do it and cover their expenses. You know and as as we go more and more into live work because album sales are falling off Airfares hotels be gear All that stuff and then your health Can you can you actually keep doing it can you? Can you get on a plane? One more time and sit for nine hours and then get in a car every day and drive for four or five hours as you go from GIG takes a toll on you so if you that. That's that's the game that's the if you can afford to keep doing it and you can cover your costs and and you know have a life. Then you're wildly successful. That's my definition. But you've you've you've even at fortunate to collaborate with a lot of people who who. Who Haven't you collaborated with that? You would love to work with one of the ones that I really got. Disclose was Niccolo recorded a song that I wrote with Andy White for the Kings kings record and he basically he said I'd love to record. That song has Kolon was sending them out to various artists that were on our list and he said Yeah. I like that Song But he said CAN I. Can I rewrite some lyrics because there was a line in the song that says I was born at the start of the summer of love? I grew up in a world full change. And he said nobody's GonNa believe me. Sing and I was born at the start of the summer of love Nick Lowe they know how old I am. It's not apply. So do you mind if I changed that and I said of course not here. Niccolo whatever the fuck you lot so. He rewrote the song to say an eager young man in the summer of love. I was loose in a world full of change which is such a great line. I was loose in a world full of change anyway so. He rewrote the song now. I tried really hard to get into the session because I was actually in London. I was in Camden town. Which is I was playing a GIG. When he was recording the song and Colin was was emailing me. Saying he's GonNa Record it tomorrow. He's rewritten and he's going to record it tomorrow. And I'm like Oh my God. I'm in Camden. And he's going to be in Camden in studio recording. Can I get in because if I can get into that session? I will freak right out. I was not invited. So that's the one for me the got away. I got to meet him after a talk with him. A little bit about it. And he's a delightful man but it's just it's I would love to have met. Johnny cash never got to meet him Roseanne. I have met. And she's superb human being. It's just you know being around those characters who have been in the business for for so long and and have a wealth of knowledge That would be a trip to be around. Those people got to tour of fourteen fourteen or fifteen shows the Rodeo kings. The three of us just as a trail we opened whole bunch of shows for Merle haggard man thing so you know that does anybody from that kind of era in particular would be. It'd be amazing just to be around them to be able to talk and hang out a little bit. There's a quote or this is attributed to you. I think it was on your last album. The golden era of analog recording. You said you wanted to get back to that. Beautiful tying with Neil young and and sort of his whole mission on bringing this sort of the analog sound back. Tell me your thoughts on on analog where we are with you know how people listen to music and stuff digital is definitely a double edged sword because on the one hand that record which. I'm talking about getting back to the golden era of analog is in fact was recorded on a laptop so but they aesthetic behind the idea behind it was there was a point with with sort of that the high end of analog where the engineers were at the top of their game because they had worked as the equipment grew. The technology developed When you went from recording For TRACK TO SIXTEEN TRACK. A thirty two track and all the compressor issues and Priam's all this stuff that A modern elegant high analog studio would have because it was all outboard and all those circuits and all those Just all that circuitry tubes but not necessarily tubes but all that stuff it the people that ran at day they learned how to use it as it developed and so there was a point where it reached xenophon. And it was sort of in the seventies where you had bands like steely Dan and Not just them but bans like that. Who were they? Were pushing it. As far as they could Multi track tape and The sounds were amazing in the country. World The an album that I've always loved a Behind closed doors charlie rich. That was kind of that that the death at the top of the game of that era. Where all the players would be in the same room at the same time they were all crack players like they do force the two or three songs a four hour session and they'd walk in with never heard the song before so in a four hour session they would learn songs. Come up with an arrangement record the definitive version of it and then move onto the next one and the engineers everybody was functioning on all cylinders and Aguirre was gorgeous So when he looked digital digits ones and. Zeros it's it's it's It's a it's it's a different. It doesn't have the same When you hear people talking about digilent- start moving your hands a lot because it's hard to define it but no matter how good your resolution is. You're still talking about one zero. So you're still talking about square waves Analog doesn't have that so the amount of detail that you can get. Analogue is potentially better however digital equipment is unbelievable and it's come so far and the fact that. I can fly to a studio in Winnipeg and record an album for bare-bones money. That sounds really good and What I meant by that the trying to get back to that. Golden era of analog was the method of recording. Where everybody's in the room at the same time and you're reacting to each other you're trying to capture something sonically in the moment as opposed to I record my part to a click track and then I overdubbed I overdubbed I overdubbed and it's a very different process. It's just A. It's a different beast altogether lacking the Rodeo kings has always been about Recording live and Whenever we can as much as we can annalong just because it's a different sound whether it's better sound now or not is is definitely debatable. And there'd be a lot of way more qualified people than me who could argue both ways and I've sat chatted with them both with both sides but a there was a I level of skill amongst the players and the engineers that I think we've lost a lot of in this era because what's happened with digital is it's come along so fast that's There's a lot of engineers who don't actually know their gear that while they may know pro. Tool's really well but they don't necessarily know Mike Placement really well. That's changing And there's you know there's there's a a level of engineer that I've I've had the pleasure working with in places like national which is unbelievable. They they have. They've they've If they've ingested all of it so they they they know all about Mike's they know all about to gear they know all about digital gear and they've got an all under their fingertips but that's just starting to happen. So what what we're getting into now is. Is this hybrid of engineer. Whose equally comfortable with both digital analog and they will use both or either of them depending on what's more appropriate which is really amazing. It's interesting when we've talked to some of the engineers that we've had the pleasure to speak with on welcome to the music. They've talked about the equipment getting smaller so they're able to pack up my suitcase but essentially pack up a suitcase fly to whatever location. Set up the gear both in analog and digital whatever the combination is and they can just set up like that record back it up and away they go and it's just they've they've talked about it being. It's made it easier to set up on location. Yeah I believe that's true and I think that the quality of what you walk away with this really really high now and digital has become this thing the double edged sword of course with digital. Is that the at the same time as it's enabling us to do stuff Compact low budget all that stuff that the tools are are really heavy now that we like an intense. What we can do is is amazing but at the same time digital spotify. And it's cutting it's got the industry it's killing the industry and you know like a off in February. I was in Toronto to do Some television breakfast TV with black the royal king. So we're pulling into this Downtown Television Studio at five o'clock in the morning and I'm walking and it's right at Nathan Phillips Snot Nathan Square the Big Square with all the billboards where the soft the square. And so I'm I'm standing there. Five o'clock there's nobody on the streets and I'm looking up and there are those huge billboards that are like four stories tall. Led Billboards. And they're all devoted to spotify. And I swear to God ask there it is. It's Dan story right there and if I mean we don't we don't WanNa get into that conversation because it's it's it's a whole other conversation but if I'm making point. Zero Zero. Four cents per stream in order for that to equal the sale of one CD. That's five thousand streams. You know. There's the math I go to a show I sell. I played a show one of the shows. I played New ALBUM I sell thirty five CDs at the show. That's great. That's that's that's reasonable. I'm going to pay back my investment on the album that I just made take me a year or two to cover all the costs and in the meantime I got the steady cash flow at it works out but as soon as I start looking at the streaming model. That's IT I can't afford to record anymore. And so the whole thing get skewed towards the the acts that are subsidized by those labels. That are actually making some money. Which is very the whole thing just gets distorted so that the likes of me. It's tough and the only way we can make a living playing the live playing life. Yeah yes you'll have it. I know that you you're also record producer even producing you. Do these songwriter workshops. You talked earlier about you. Know as long as the body can hold up. You continue to go on the road obviously post Kobe. Twenty twenty one is that sort of quote unquote your retirement. Does that sort of what you could see yourself doing? You know staying involved. You know not saying that. You're getting old. They're sure where does all of this sort of fit into your your your music career. I don't I don't honestly know an every now. And then my mother who is eighty four says you know. You can't do this well BURP. She's right because it's it starts to. It does start to take a toll Physically the recovery time when I come home from a month and a half touring through Europe is is greater than it used to be but I love playing live. I love it. I love touring. I don't WanNa quit so I am going to spend the I. I quit smoking a number of years ago. I I took up vaping because it was a way for me to fiddle with my hands and get some nicotine and nicotine nicotine. Great Drugs But eventually I had to quit that because I couldn't I just can't like it's anything that is stopping me from doing this. GotTa go So the idea for me is to just keep playing a as as live as long as I can. If they're still is alive seen so we'll see what happens when we when we somehow ease back into whatever's coming next I I believe in my heart that there there will be and that people still really want that but At some point you have to say. I can't do this very often and I don't know what I'll do them I making records for other people but if if if something that's a maybe as well I don't know being a record producer is that is that smart of a move teaching. I like teaching songwriting to people. And there's definitely that's one of those jobs that the more you do it the more you know you know. Could you imagine having you know if John? Prien was teaching songwriting. Like what a class that would be so to be able to go and be with somebody who's been in the business that That you can kind of not just learn about songwriting. But the philosophy around it that kind of thing you know. Maybe that's some thing I can do when I'm older and and not able to travel as much but until then I'm going to be hitting it hard. You Know I. I figured out how to tour with just me and a guitar are a a slightly extravagant pedal board and I love it. I've got friends in all over the place that I get to visit once every maybe I'm lucky every eighteen months twelve you know. Sometimes I stay with people that I've been friends with them for twenty years. I see them once every two years. I stay with them for five days. And it's it's it's I don't want to let go of that perfectly so steven one of the questions. I liked task is right now. What's what's in your year when you listen to a? I've made this decision which I try not to make too long I record. I made a record a couple years ago. Called the secret of climbing and It's it was a vinyl only release because I was asked to make it by guiding Roy. Gandhi and Roy Gandhi founded a company called. Rega research in the seventies I believe and Riga makes turntables speakers amplifiers CD players. They're British company. They have employ about one hundred and fifty people they make and sell. I think five thousand turntables a month worldwide. And they have done since the seventies and you know the whole Stephen. The death of vital drill factors like amazing company. And they. They're really you know they. They refined things by microns. Which is how you measure your hair like. It's it's this weird little world when you when you come across a company like that it's like A. It's like a high end car manufacturer or something. Anyway Roy wanted to make a record that he could use demonstrators turntables. Where he knew. Because if somebody if you could imagine that you spend your whole life creating the back end but you have no control over the front end. He's got some pretty strong opinions on what people are doing wrong in the studio because he listens to it in a way that you and I don't So he over. The year has championed records that he really loves that he feels. We're recorded in a way. That is what he wants to hear and He has actually made a couple of records so he basically said to me. Could we make a record with as little technology between you? And the cutting Leith as possible. So the microphones obviously the wires and but going directly to preempts that he made himself no. Eq's no mixing boards no fixing cutting pasting all one take and that went to vocal and guitar track and to and then we went from that which was on a studer eight track so real. Nice quality. Reel to reel from that. He went to left and right so he had to mix because he took to mono signals. And you put them into Stereo and we added a little bit of river that we had to arm wrestle over that because we had to add digital reverb and Roy was like no but we did and we both felt that it improve the project but it sounds like the record sounds it's so intimate sounding it's almost at first. I felt that it was almost claustrophobic. Because I am so close to the microphone. And because there's no compressors and there's no accusers. No the signal is not going out through other circuits. It's going direct to take and then from that direct of the cutting lathe and when he cut the record most of the Times you go into a mastering studio and you've run to signal through the mastering board so he went to air. Which is George Martin Studio in London? Told this Guy Ray scarf out of retirement and they bypassed the air Mastering Board and went direct. He said those literally a wire going from his reel to reel directly to the cutting lathe and he brought in this master cutting engineer who cuts the mother disc that you stamp on the record so that was my sort of reinitiation into the world of vinyl because I left final. I quit vinyl. I know twenty years ago I adding around I gave up on it. I let I kept my vile but I had a very modest collection. I bought into CDs HUNDRED PERCENT. I was all for sees. They were great and they still are and musician. Traveling around you. Put three hundred of those suckers in the cardboard case in your suitcase. And that's your tour. Right try caring three hundred. Lp's around on your own in a car like it's it's a real pain. The artist so I gave up on Vinyl and when Roy and I worked on this project he asked me if I had a turntable and I said No. And he was embarrassed for me and he gave me one of their starter. Basic Riga model turntables. And I realized. So here's the the answer your questions. Sorry long other. I realized that I wasn't listening to my CDs. I had downloaded most of my CDs onto my hard drive and they were sitting in boxes in the basement when my wife and I moved to Victoria all these boxes came with me and I looked at them and went. What am I doing with these things? These are just files that are in this format. They're all in my hard drives goodbye and I took them all to value village by entire CD collection. Goodbye and It was very weird feeling Because I've been collecting this stuff for years and years. I I don't wow many. I had it wasn't like some massive collection but it was my collection. I realized I have not bought music for twenty. No ten years haven't bought music because I don't I don't go to record stores anymore because they don't exist and I had fallen out of that whole habit and I I thought okay. Well that's it. I'm going back to vinyl so I've been buying vinyl so I tend to listen to old music because some of the new stuff is snobbery. Well pressed or it's ridiculously expensive. Like I'M NOT PAN thirty five bucks for a vinyl record. That that's ludicrous to me. I I will go and buy from the artists at a Gig for that money but mostly I'm buying stuff that's on sale or I go to the second hand store and buy it there and most of it is stuff that I used to have or had on CD and now I wanna have a vile so what. I'm listening to Omelettes into everything but on and of course when? I when I'm traveling you know what's on my phone and everything so I do that. Too But Everything cream do you still have still have all the CD's Kellen. I did the same thing we got rid of ours. We didn't go to value village. A hand off to this guy over here. You still have those because if you do you've got all the black King Tut's even stuffing stay zero. You've got I do. Hana stuff there I do. I do. And it's interesting because as soon as you gave them to me Greg I go. I don't have a CD player. Yeah there's only one in my car and I I don't I hardly drive anywhere. Forget about now. I'm on the same tank of gas field in Beano BEF- before we had to hunker down but so in short Greg Olive your CDs for now in my storage. But you're right it's it's it's vinyl or it's It's it's it's it's weird but you throw on their radio stations. Sometimes Stu Yeah Oh yeah that But it I realized Oh my God. I'm sorry I'm not listening to music. I'm listening to French. Cdc because I don't know what they're saying and they have much better. Music tastes in the evening though. They've got great jazz and Inbetween. It's just me. I don't know what I don't speak French at all. I'm a classic Canadian so I don't know what they're saying so it's perfect nice. It's fulfills all the things I want and the music's better but I thought this I gotta go Scott Start Listening to music again with intention. Not just having a burger in the background. Because I'm a I'm supposed to be harder. So yeah so. It's been very exciting. It's really fun to go. There are some well. Toronto's got some great music source. But if you're ever in the prairies. Oh my God Saskatoon and Regina and Winnipeg they three. Those three cities have incredible. Use final stores you know they. They've got tie-dyed t-shirts bombs on everything. It's like going way back way back in time back when you started Steve this has been a delight to to speak with you into to listen to your stories before we let you go if people want to tune into your under the hood if they want to find out more about you baby a by by some vinyl or whatever where where should they go. Stephen fearing dot com would be the best place to go. Everything's there and It's the weird thing. Websites are becoming sort of like back room. instagram twitter facebook it. Hopefully I'm easy to find if I'm not. I'm not doing my job very well but I am. I'm on all of those platforms pretty regularly so Yeah and a youtube site as well. Which if you know. We're archiving all this stuff there as well. So it's interesting we're right now. We're fighting the YOUTUBE OF COPYRIGHT CONTROL. Because for some reason they're they're questioning. Why did you play that song? You're not the copyright holder. So that's what happens with Youtube. I think when you suddenly start uploading a bunch of music stuff they go away so but yeah all the all these live. Streams are archived. There yes Stephen. During Dot Com will steer you to everywhere. This has been awesome. Thanks so much for joining US Steven. Thanks for having me and letting me I can talk your ears off. Thank God it's awesome for writers. Your Time Take Care. I WILL CLICK. Leave see later. Care safe stay healthy and you Nah.

Inside Europe 06.06.2019

"The w. Inside here with Keith Walker hollow. Coming up on today's program Europe, marks the seventy fifth anniversary of d day we speak with World War Two veterans on the Normandy, beaches, if I didn't tell the stories about my man that no, they couldn't do it. And I felt it my responsibility to talk to people about the war, and what they did also coming up, there are Kohl's trek prime minister to step down amid fraud allegations. Plus, Trump in Europe, some of the largest ever demonstrations against a foreign leader. Right here. You call it your antagonizing conflict. Right. You're making the problem worse. So why don't you take it here on his right? How? How did you don't need to somewhere else? Stories and more coming up on inside Europe. Europe has been marking the seventy fifth anniversary of the d day landings that turns the tide of World War Two with a dwindling number of veterans who lived through d day now in their nineties, and beyond this week's ceremonies on the Normandy beaches with world leaders is likely the last major commemoration, they will attend Jake sagana room mess with one of the last surviving veterans and spoke with locals in the region who remember the allied invasion. On Omaha beach, Normandy alone piece of concrete juts out of the sand. It's known as raise rock named after the former US army medic Ray Lambert at ninety eight years old. Ray, Lambert is a star on Omaha beach, people wanna shake the veterans hand people like Eric Morrow from DUI, Maryland. One veteran to another thanks very much for your service and everything. Did you heard welcome last year, the town above the beach Colville, sir mare, which is home to the American cemetery? Put a plaque on the rock with Lambert's name and the names of his fellow medics who landed here on June sixth, nineteen forty four Lambert and his men used the concrete mound to shield wounded soldiers from German gunfire seventy five years ago, during the onslaught of the D landings can come and see my men. I know that they're being remembered those guys are my age today. So they have many of them gone. Of course, the name to here permanently now will ever be. And it makes me feel good Lambert grew up in rural Alabama, he and his brother Bill signed up for the army in nineteen forty. They went through two landings before d day North Africa nineteen forty two and Sicily. The following year Ray Lambert. Was wounded in both assaults and awarded the silver star for bravery, then the brothers faced the Omaha beach bloodbath. Together, we can hear the machine gun bullets on the ramp like HALE. And so we knew when route went down that we would be seeing on bullets would come in kill some guy when I went off that boat got something with through my right elbow, shattered the oboe. And so I went underwater get away from the sheen gun bullets. Ray made it to the beach, but he was even more exposed to German gunfire as he tried to treat wounded comrades, and it was nothing for them. Nothing to get them behind the offer any protection. So I was looking around and I happened to see this rock, and I told my men that we'd have to try to get those guys behind this rock. Ray was wounded again this time in the. The leg and later woke up next to his brother and a military hospital even though they lived through three invasions together, Ray says he and his brother Bill didn't talk about the war much when it was over. I realized that if I didn't tell stories about my man that no, they couldn't do it. And I felt my responsibility and obligation to them to try to talk to people until people about the war, and what they did Bill Lambert died in two thousand ten and Ray says this will be his last trip to Normandy. But before he goes home to North Carolina. He wants to have one more glass of Calva dose, the region signature apple brandy. Sadly, the cure kill me. Sure. Which one? Zecha the number of locals here. Who remember the day landings are dwindling to up the coast behind Juno beach, Marguerite, and Remmy, Casteel, served glasses of Calva dose at their home and settled on their mayor de deep Marguerite was seventeen when the allies landed she'd lived under German occupation for four years, pluck. It'll you done CD nob- when explosions in the distance woke her up her father told her to go back to bed, but around three in the morning, she says the noise became unbearable my father told us, we had to go the invasion had begun. If you toss, she got a mo- cozy family to cover in a trench. They dug then in a stable with neighbors today at ninety two castle, still gets choked up, when she talks about what she saw at Juno beach just after combat ended. Won't side. You'll be cadet connect Duff. We stopped at the wall. She says there were Canadians. There were bodies lined up, there was one he, he didn't have a face anymore. You cannot forget that since that day Casio says she doesn't like going to the beaches, even though she lives just steps away. Jake sagana road d- w Normandy. And I'm Keith Walker in Bonn, Germany. This is inside Europe. Many world leaders marched the day. Uninvite Serie in Normandy, and also in Portsmouth England, including US, President Trump as part of his five day visit to Europe, some of the largest ever demonstrations against a foreign leader took place at the so-called carnival over distance in central London. Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets to show that condemnation of Trump's policies among the protesters was Patrick Christie's current affairs reporter at love sports radio based in London. Hello, Patrick, Hal out, how good things, how's the protests? What was the vibe then like, and I was quite shocked as he brought he said the word tens of thousands of people there, and it was a smorgasbord of different demographics. All of them United in their hatred of Donald Trump. I thought that may be that would be more of a kind of welcoming atmosphere. We're all on the same boat here, but a really really wasn't. There was a serious undertone of aggression, how much love was in the crowd. Trump -solutely known though is even a bloke who spent twenty five thousand dollars of his own money flying over a giant robot of Donald Trump sat on the toilet with his pants on his ankles, tweeting, and not said things like no collusion. Over and over again though, is definitely. No love for Trump yesterday. What does anything else happened there? Well, yeah, well, let's say there was no love for Trump. Now yesterday, there were at least maybe three or four people, I suppose, who did love him actually, because they were walking through with make America great again. Hats now I thought that they were joking. Right. So I thought this was this was lucky. I an ironic fashion statement. So I told one of them over just so do you actually support from? So they said, yes, they do. And then this is the thing that really got me, which is how quickly the crowd set upon them. Now, the blow the I was speaking to his hat was ripped off. He was pushed around in a woman hits him. There was another gentleman as well. Let's say it was probably in his early sixties. He was walking through this crowd. I'm was milkshake which has become the fashion. Now in England, whatever anyone is. Of the right on the political spectrum. They got milkshake pulled over there had now I found this ironic from group of people who are holding banners up saying about inclusivity and tolerance. And all these nice virtues that they say that Trump opposes. Well, you know they were opposing that impart yesterday. And I think there is a worrying sense, not just in London, but in Britain now, actually that wherever you go if you don't necessarily subscribe to the, the correct form of politics, kind of centre-left form of politics, actually, you are banned from having those views, and you should be ostracized from society under get into any spirited debates. With anybody there when you were there. Yeah. Well, I mentioned before about the Chaffee, walk pass with his make America great again. Hat now the crowd exception to me interviewing him because they thought I was giving him a platform. I would like to point out, I interviewed numerous unsee, Trump protesters. Well, we have a short clip of what happened that. Interviewing this man right here. You call your tugging conflict, right? You're making the problem worse. So why don't you take your microphone if you wanna take eat it here, only make America great how to him somewhere else? No Trump supporter here today's. But his aggressive towards me as you have. And I wouldn't what? Wouldn't what? That's a fair. And that's probably a fair question. Yes. So they backed down quite quickly when confronted reason, but look that is the vibe that particular place. I it was a very nasty undetermined to it was the same protests that the leader of the opposition labor party. Jeremy Corbyn was speaking out. It was Jeremy Corbyn actually took to the stage about five minutes later up just over my shoulder. What I was doing night's interview now he gave very very good speech, you know, whether or not you agree with his politics is one thing. He's very good Arata, and it was a fantastic speech, but he was very passionate about the, the any future trade deal with regards to the US Brisard should not include any elements of our national health service, which is, of course, free at the point of view as things currently stand. They were adamant that shouldn't be allowed to happen that really form the centerpiece over. He also made reference, of course, to the, Donald Trump has had a bit of a check it history, shall we say, when it comes whose treatment of women and ethnic minorities. So I say to viz. As arrive this week. Thank on, please about a world that is one apiece. And this is one of recognizing the values of all papal is a world that defeats racism defeats misogyny, defeats the religious hatreds that are being filled by the far right in politics in Britain in Europe and the United States, the leader of the opposition labor party, Jeremy Corbyn, then Patrick, he requested a private meeting with the president. This all the little bit embarrassing jessa as he's known over here. Yes, it was he was giving it quite large about the fact that he turned down a meeting with President Trump. President Trump to standing next to what is going to be much longer. Our Prime Minister Theresa may saying that he in fact had turned down Corbin now I think myself and promptly probably most people at Ashim that may be Donald Trump wasn't quite telling the truth turns out today that he was. Actually Jeremy Corbyn did ask for a private meeting with which you imagine just under mine, his credibility little bit in that respect. But he probably just wanted to sound him out the merits of shifting his ideology towards the hard left and Trump turns them down. I don't know Jeremy Corbyn. Never met him never spoke to him. He wanted to meet today or tomorrow, and I decided that I would not do that. I think that he is from where I come from somewhat of a negative force. I think that people should look to do things correctly as opposed to criticize. I really don't like critics as much as I like and respect people that get things done. So I decided not to meet. So that's put him in his place. Yes. I think actually the centerpiece of this gone slightly under reported in this country is the distinction between the two when it comes to Israel Palestine, Donald Trump unashamedly premise, row, Jeremy Corbyn unashamedly pro Palestine, a massive area of policy. No going to the no gonna find any agreement on, I think, dies, probably will underpins. I'm each. We'll hatred. Christie's, thank you very much for your time. And thanks for your going along on. Braving braving, everything out the protests, docu, very much having me. I'm coming next coals for the Czech prime minister to step down amid allegations that he fraudulently obtained e you subsidies on Keith Walker in Bonn, Germany. You're listening to inside Europe. Pryke saw another huge demonstration against the Czech prime Minister Andrei. Bob ish this week? The latest in a series of mass protests, calling on him and his newly appointed Justice minister to resign they're angry at that. Mr. Bob ish, who is the country's second richest man, fraudulently obtained a you subsidies and pointed to a leaked European Commission report, claiming he's in a conflict of interest, Andrey Bobby rejects. All the allegations and says the report represents an attack on check sovereignty. Rob Cameron was among the crowds and sent this report. Is, is said, this was the biggest protests since the nine hundred thousand nine full of communism difficult. Diversify police have yet to challenge their claims that it was attended by one hundred twenty thousand people certainly Wenceslas square was packed from top to bottom. The crowd cheered and booed, as organized as read out their demands the resignation of unday Bob ish mired in allegations of e u subsidy fraud almost since becoming prime minister in two thousand seventeen and the woman who was recently appointed Justice minister, mightier Benesch awhile demonstrators worry, she's been installed to frustrate the ongoing fraud prosecution against him while the protests have been given new impetus by leaked European Commission reports claiming that his huge Agrofert conglomerates, which receives E U subsidies represents a conflict of interest. Here's a sample of their anger. Because our. Time minister is an action violation of our law. He was apart of the resume in some part, and I simply cannot be with, that he says everything he does his business or the EU funds. He's on various businesses. It's all legal. It is not legal says is very much revisit disagreed with the culture of Mr Bush here, his public appearances and his scorn, this the people with their disagreement how ex against and I hope that's if so many people can gather together here that means something to the public are to other people who are in charge Andrei, Bobby rejects all of those, and the Gatien's check police have recommended to prosecutors that he stands trial for fraudulently obtaining, two million euros in EU subsidies, a decade ago. For his luxury Stork's nest farm resort and conference center. He says the criminal prosecution is a witch hunt, and he's breached. Neither check nor EU law. But there's a new problem for the Slovak born prime minister on Friday, the check media published a leaked draft of an internal European Commission audit, which determined that his Agrofert business empire should not have had access to E funds in recent years, because Mr Bush had a clear conflict of interest, the commission appears to have rejected his defense that Agra I was placed in two trusts before he became Prime Minister, Mr Bush says the audit is both the founder and the sole beneficiary of those trusts and the Czech Republic should pay back the money responding to the reports in Parliament, Mr Bush could barely contain his contempt. Then out the Cuban the, this audit is very problematic. I consider it as an attack on the Czech Republic. As an attack on the interests of the Czech Republic, as an attempt to destabilise the Czech Republic. European officials showing contempt for check laws Brussels is telling the Czech Republic how to interpret its own laws, and I'm going to ask at the next European Council meeting. What is going on here? Forget idea zip them. Toyota. This week's protests. Not good news for under a bridge. They do not at least not yet represents an imminent political threat. He said he won't resign, even if he's formerly charged with fraud and the president says he went sack him his junior coalition partners. The social Democrats are so terrified of electoral oblivion, they won't bring down the government and the commission report is a leaked draft. It hasn't even been translated into check yet. And they will be months of legal back and forth before anything happens. This could be a long hot summer under Bob ish. But it will take more than demonstration's to end his political career rub Cameron d-w. You're listening to inside Europe. This summer, many restaurants in Cyprus will tempt tourists with unique breakfasts made from locally produced food. It's part of an initiative to promote Gus stroke tourism on the island. For the first time, Nathan Morley has been to see what's on. Forget the full English breakfast with sausage bacon beans eggs, all continental croissants today. I'm talking into my first ever separate breakfast. Just like thousands of tourists. We'll be doing this year on the island, and it looks like there's a lot to choose from local favorites range from grilled halloo me, which is a traditional squeaky white sip cheese. This also dried tomatoes, not some plenty of lives and the roller unusual, delicious pork dish, which has a surprising recipe as George demand, new, the president of the chefs association explains our smoke, which is a Polk loins mock glowing, it's very unique with red wine. Bright it wine with marvel marvel. It's. Kind of grape, which is only incite proof. Unusual breakfast choice and this display here what, what else is on offer. We have Kara zero. We have our unique Hanmi. We have our, I'm not Ichi his, which is with no salt, even in our fields. You can get greens special live from November to April, which is unbelievable on taste, delicious. This feast demonstrates the new Sonny perspec- I initiative now. The idea is to serve up modern creative cuisine, which is inspired by tradition. And of course, the famed Mediterranean, diet for Savvas patios, who's the deputy minister of tourism, such schemes are an essential part of a wider effort to diversify tourism here, and it's quite a departure from the old seeing sand promotions. We respect the son in see product a lot. It's what got us here. Here. We want to consolidate on that. But at the same time, we want to show the world. What other fantastic things Cyprus has and to do that in order to extend your season in all spread the wealth from tourism, certainly, you need to focus on special forms of tourism and gastronomic. Tourism is one of them. And yeah, this is why a concept like this is important for us going forward. It's here in the city of Larnaca on the eastern coast with its long golden beaches that a pilot program for the breakfast scheme was I tried out those taking part over the last few years were urge to be creative, and deliver a different experience, George demand. Yo says there's been no complaints so far. I let cuisine. It's well, come for everybody. Germans, they love it. They love it. But that cannot say that the even the Igli show of the French all the other European countries Russians. They love it. I believe that. It's welcome for countries. Sultan, courage is up lifting for everybody involved in this project and just out there across the Mediterranean. Neighboring Greece has been famed for its food for many years. Let's have as patio says, there are some key differences between the Greek and the separate cuisines the spices. Here we, we have been a trade route of spices for thousands and thousands of years, so many cultures so many religions passed from here. So there is a significant influence on separate cuisine from the lands around us, whether we were talking about the back then the Middle East as well even the north African region. So that's a huge advantage that we, we want to be using the scheme in full swing. It's hoped that travelers here will spot a new logo outside some restaurants which is designed to flag. Up the addition of these traditional breakfasts. So what did the man behind the project have the his breakfast this morning? So he's roasted almonds. Berries? Raw sesame, paste, otherwise known as tahini. Together with some Rawhani or corrupt syrup. Mixed together. It is nutritious. It keeps you full until, at least the afternoon. And it's completely unprocessed so that's the secret breakfast. And that sounds absolutely delicious. Nathan more the Deutsche Avella Cyprus. Yeah. Kind of does sign delicious.

The stuff off taking them methadone that ten th beer. Whatever managing their Dixon's, as best they can with job an income away back to a proper life. These stories and more coming up on inside Europe. From Bonn, Germany. You're listening to incite era. Leaks documents from extinction. Rebellion shows possible plans to shut die in London Heathrow airport using drone technology. That's if the UK government does not roll back plans for airport expansion. The climate protest group has always prided itself on being a nonviolent peaceful movement. Unless I'm always in London. I met up with some of the protesters, and that's what I experienced many people are now questioning whether proposals such as this mice change that perception, Jack foster has this report. And we have got to. Promotional video for extinction rebellion which launch just a year ago, pushing for nonviolent demonstrations to highlight what they call a climate emergency and a massive extinction of humanity's own making the movements philosophy and sense of urgency has to some extent been personified by activists like sixteen year old Swedish schoolgirl. Greeter Thunberg, who gave a passionate address to EU leaders back in April is falling apart. Our leaders need to start acting accordingly because at the moment of the are not, if our house was falling apart leaders, wouldn't go on like you do today, you would change almost every part of your behavior as you do in an emergency birth hurled extinction rebellion promotes nonviolent and peaceful form of demonstration some of its methods here in the United Kingdom, have raised eyebrows. For example, large sections of central London were bloat for days as protesters occupied various landmarks during April this year, resulting in. Over a thousand arrests. Whilst huge numbers of arrests might sound like a protest gone wrong. One of extinction, rebellions central tactics is actually purposefully seeking arrests. Not actually that important as the going to prison, which is Scott coutry resonance, as you might say, that's one of extinction, rebellions founders Roger Hallam arguably, it's most prominent face. He was speaking in Vancouver to the UK's garden newspaper about recruiting arrestable activists. So it goes like this go into town hall ACS Cobham is effectively over. We're all gonna die. We're all gonna die vocalise Asian. I sent people agree to go. Get rested. Ten twenty percent of people to prison. The idea behind this strategy is to overwhelm the system in a way that traditional methods Khandu the emailing writing letters going on the day. Day mart. It's no good need about four hundred people to go to prison. Maybe two thousand people to go rested. Of course, in the context of road closures or demonstrators occupying landmarks. It's been possible up until now to the scribe extinction, rebellions approach as non violent, but a leaked consultation documents shared between group members last week has ramped up concerns about public safety considerably it emerged that plans had been floated to shutdown London's Heathrow airport using drone technology, if the UK government did council plans for airport expansion, the government's robust response threatened maximum life prison sentences for anyone using drones who might endanger public safety at Heathrow, extinction, rebellions, UK press, office said they weren't giving interviews on the issue at the moment, but the pains to point that plans to shut down Heathrow airport using drones where nothing more than a suggestion by individual members of the organization. I'm by no means set. Stone. I did. However, manage to speak with one of extinction. Rebellion Scotland's spokespeople? Nieve McNulty, and I asked her, whether she felt some of the groups, tied takes might be undermining support for its aims, I think is a tricky one. I think OC non-violent action is a core par offer strategy and this involves like a low of different things. A core part foot being sort of doing disruptive actions, and also actions, which are potentially arrestable on a personal level. I'm saying this I feel really lost and scared powerless in the face of like something that's like such a big web of a system, and when writing letters and when voting and all these things don't seem to be making a difference like when you go out and get arrested. It's not for like the fame is no, for the sort of, like, oh, this is really cool. Like it's Qena horrible sitting in a, so I'm sure the most people even trying to would understand the logic of that approach. However. Is one thing to a truck or booking a road. But it's quite another thing to fly. Drones into is one of the busiest passenger ports in the world. Do you think that crosses the line from civil disobedience into something else? Yeah, I think you know, flying drones around an airport is a different line. And something that makes me uncomfortable in a way I'm not really sure if it's targeting the infrastructure or of his targeting individual, flyers. And I think there would be more constructive ways of sorrow targeting such fossil based industry such an industry based on light such mass consumption and safer ways to do as well. And I do worry that it might damage the calls a little bit. Leave McNulty from extinction rebellion Scotland Heathrow airport is the world's second busiest airport, and the large scale drone strike would likely cause major disruption perhaps most concerning Volvo from the perspective of climate change is this action could potentially place extinction of valiant in the same bracket, as his logic state, who threatened Joan attacks following the shutdown of London's Gatwick airport last year. A science from. Shift in its public image, though. Some of its would undoubtedly face the prospect of some serious prison sentences, but given its approach so far, and the position of people like Roger Hallam that may prove very little in the way of Tarrant, John, Foster d-w, and I'm Keith Walker. You're listening to inside Europe, the most prestigious art show in the world. The Venice art Biennale a fifty eighth edition is underway on the Venice lagoon. It runs until November tub artists from around the world are displaying their latest creations with dozens of countries represented and this year and includes former colonized nations and indigenous people who've been routinely overlooked, by the art world and the being alley. Megan Williams reports from Venice. I understand that you love this land out here. But the school children have the bullets school. That's a man known only as boss, a tall caribou, skin clad, Representative of the Canadian government, who's traveled with a translator to an Arctic hunting settlement. He they're tries to convince an Inuit elder and his family to leave their land and relocate where the government wants them. The scene is from the feature film one day in the life of no up Iago took by the celebrated innuendo artists collective e Suma. It's a reenactment of negotiation between Piazza took and the Canadian bureaucrat in nineteen sixty one mistranslations and misunderstandings abound with tragic consequences. The exhibit is the first time in you at artists have shown at Canada's national pavilion, and is part of a wave of indigenous artists. Both in official pavilions and here in protest. At this year's Venice, Biennale, Candice Hopkins from car, cross to guess, first nation in Yukon. Is one of the Canadian exhibits co curator do see people who are responding to the charge of the government to move into a settlement to change your way of life. And you see them explaining why this doesn't work because the homeland is not just your homeland, it is the source of language. It's a source of culture. It's a source of your Konami. It's the source of your medicines source of your food. If you take all of that away, and you move people into a settlement, they don't have any of that anymore. So you've lost not only your home, but you're very, you're very being this first show at the Biennale is resonating powerfully with other northern indigenous people here, Frederick, puffed is an artist who's part of the Saami people who live spread out across the northern parts of Norway Sweden Finland. And Russia kind of. Of seeing things is in value menu. I think it's hard for the majority to, to think about that. Not having anything done from your point of view. So it's, it's hugely important. We've been active in art for as long as there's been some there has been Saami art, but the western world hasn't really wanted to recognize what we do is art says, Lisa revolucion Bogue, who is also Asami, she's from Norway. And like puffed here in Venice is part of the office of contemporary art, Norway that's promoting Saami artists, and what they call an enu it summer school for artists storytellers and moviemakers during the Biennale today. I think for a lot of the, the big som-, eat names in the art world is basically that there s hell because there is so much unjustice in their home communities, and they're using their art, you sort of Canalis this anger and try to put the. World focus on what is happening like indigenous activists Pietra, the Eddie who is part of the Finnish exhibit this year. She stands on a bench outside the Finnish pavilion with other indigenous people from different parts of the world. They hold signs that read, moratorium decolonized Saami area. Declare that this bench that I'm standing on is my moratorium for performances called moratorium office and it encourages the public to declare moratoriums to express themselves freely. She uses hers to speak out against a Finnish government policy encouraging tourists to visit Saami territory where she says a fake version of, who they are is soul inland do nothing about what I'm about to say. Opinion quite literally. It is complete. That's my opinion. And so we have arrived at this historic day. Chris you as the first aboriginal, president of the People's Republic of Australia, down the lagoon in a small park outside the national pavilion area. Australian indigenous artists and activists Richard bell has set up an art protest of his own with video installations inside a tent signs in front say, aboriginal embassy and white invaders, you're living on stolen land. It's to the first ever tent embassy in nineteen seventy two in Australia's capital, Canberra. Move Russian discussing. The effects of this have impacts on communities on our lives means. How neoliberalism and late capitalism, impact the art world and depict great works of art as the product of alone genius, as opposed to a reflection of a whole culture? The tent is to invite anyone who wants especially other indigenous people to come and discuss the connections between community, freedom, art, and colonialism. He has another installation out on the lagoon, that Australia's official pick of artists, John Denton. Appreciate it. Model of this type of rep that in China and put it on on a budget on selling up the lagoon. Oh, he loved it. He could not stop smiling laughing. He was so happy. Well, bell has a sense of humor with his approach other pavilions that explore the role of art, and cultural, oppression or more somber, the residential school story is about children being taken from their families, and the never return in a small exhibit on the second floor of a palace further afield, from the main exhibitions videos and artwork are on show that explore the role of art in everything from genocide to force removal of children to residential schools in Canada, the US and Scandinavia. The exhibit is called artisan, the atrocity prevention pavilion. It includes video interviews with artists from South Africa to Argentina, all grappling with the effects of trauma, and violence and the role of art in preventing atrocities, and eventually healing. I'm really only doing it for the purpose of healing. For myself and for. Megan Williams, DWI radio Venice. Keith Walker in Bonn, Germany. This is inside Europe. German police are investigating the mitre of vowed at Luca who is a prominent politician. And member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian. Democrats police say the sixty five year old was shot in the head a close range and no weapon was found DWI political correspondent Thomas barrow has been following the story. Hello. Thomas. Yeah, we'll come back to inside Europe tells more, I guess about the politician. First of all. Was not necessarily well known nationally, but he wasn't important figure locally and regionally in the state of Hesse. That's where your Frankfurt is located on the city of concert close to where he where he used to live. And he was a regional politician. He was described as president of district council, and that an office that has around one thousand two hundred employees and basically, everyone who was interviewed after his, his death described him as someone who was. Well, live was a good boss. People in Hesse said, they weren't a sort of collective shock because vita Luker, who was as you say, a member of the CD you was someone well, dived, but there's another side of the story, Keith, because in two thousand fifteen during the meeting in hasn't he said something along the lines that people who don't share certain values for examples helping people. In need a welcome to leave the country that wasn't reference to the migration crisis. The arrival of so many refugees in Germany, two thousand fifteen and that prompted a very big reaction from the far right scene. In Germany, he was involved in helping the refugees come into Germany. Correct insane though. Exactly his one of was his sort of key statement, and one that has been repeated since and one that generated a reaction from the fire. I'd seen received two threats from far right groups aside, even published his personal address. There were even reports afterwards that he had been threatened by the vice of that's a movement here in Germany. There is described as radical and violent police are still not sure whether these cases that were talking about these threats have any relation to the actual deck of vita, look, but this is something that has been particularly stressed now as a result of his death, because even on social media. After his death FireEye groups and fire. I people have been commenting on his debt, some even showing saying that it's positive thing, his Devon, this has generated a knot of reactions from Joe and predictions. In fact, German president Funk's Steinmeyer said that he founded cynical tasteless, and Boeing -able that people are commenting positively on social media about the fact that he was killed okay? Now that we know who the politician was, what are the police saying about the will Bechtel scene, where it happened. I mean, other even sure that was a murder exploring, all avenues, Keith factor that they have not found the weapon of the no weapon was found in crime scene has led them to say that it was probably not a suicide. But they are exploring all abilities, including whether these issues from two thousand fifteen could be related. But again, as far as information that we know they still have been able to find any evidence that these events from two thousand fifteen directly related. To this. They have a commission that I was formed by twenty people investigating this case reports said has been increased fifty and they're asking people for help when it comes to photos, or whether they have any information about who might have been around the place. Where vita looked was killed one of the spokes people of the state criminal police describe this as the most important criminal case in has eaten yards. So what started out as something that was local or even regional has turned into something of national importance as I said earlier, even German president, the time, I had something to say about the case in particular about those hate comments that have been appearing social media afterwards on this social media. It's, it's becoming a huge issue. People are being shut down on social media. They're kind so being just Dimona ties. You know, who's going to do something about what's happening in social media? Well, this has increased. Debate here in Germany, not a new debate, but it has renewed a debate about what to do with these kinds of hate speech and hate Commons on online, Germany has in fact, a local next DIGI trying to limit in a way hate speech or nine. There are certain views, I say that it hasn't been very successful others who say that it is a step in the right direction. But in this particular case, there is a renewed debate in Germany, as to how authorities and social media platforms deal with these kind of comments that was one reaction in fun, photography mine inside newspaper from us. From Facebook spokesperson said the Facebook, for example, clear rules, what is permitted and what is not on the social media platform, Monday will review Kalman's, and if they find that those comments against their rules, they will eliminate them. There are those who say that, that the no circumstance is enough under this should be more athletes, both from and from the social media platforms to deal with these instances. We'll more. Question for your Thomas. I read in the Bild newspaper that investigators are saying that the scene of the killing was some high changed or manipulated. Have you read the I also read that that report? Yes. Obviously authorities are a bit sue wary when it comes to punish a lot of information about about this case, because it's only at the beginning of the investigations there, I'm facto reports that you that you mentioned that have been the money relations in the in the crime scene. But for now, what thirties have said is that the still investigating all abilities, and that's a at least from what they know it doesn't seem that it was a suicide and they're looking into all these different issues that we've been discussing chine identify who was behind it. And why vital was killed. Okay. Well, we will watch this with interest, Thomas Spiro, DWI's political correspondent on the line from Berlin Thomas. Thank you very much for your time always vision. Keith coming in just a moment. That report, I promise. About the hotel in Denmark run by drug addicts. This is inside Europe. I'm Keith Wilbur in Bonn, Germany. Got a question for you. Would you stay in a hotel run by drug addicts? Well, some people who visit Copenhagen do the hotel at hotel, in the middle of the Danish capital, trains, and employs drug addicts remission or undertreatment to help them get back into society. The manager is an HIV positive former heroin addict, and ex prostitute, the rooms are very cheap for Copenhagen at seventy years night. And that includes a hearty Scandinavian breakfast. We send John Lawrenson to give it a try. So he's my room very small neat and white bathroom down the corridor, which owed for to be honest of a mind as a little Snickers on the pillow. Nice gesture is very quiet. The does seem to be any other guests apart from me, which might be something to do with not being on trip advisor booking dot com or anything you can't book online, and you have to pay in cash, the Ronson stuff around, either the, the hotel, flips into a sort of self service mode, two PM, which is partly Danish thing, I think, because people were very short hours. But in fact, maybe just as well as later in the day, you probably would want to be dealing with the staff, or they with you, as most of them are living with drug or alcohol addiction, as the people live with deafness or diabetes than managing it rather than curing it as I find out in the morning from the breakfast, chef. Name is Jonas. And I work in the kitchen. I'm originally a painter house paint. So me and another guy would painted a bunch of the hotel rooms toilets and stuff. Have you got to drugs? I still do so many people will work to actually functional. Addicts Hollick's was mused that we, we can take care of a job here. And then after the job is done, many of us have, like different lifestyle cannot keep you been drinking smoking drinking. You're not allowed to drink in the Trump. Okay. No. Not if, if you show up in the morning for work. Annua intoxicated, on some kind of influence that you're not allowed to work because you have to work with customers and stuff like that. So that there will simply say you're probably hungry. He's a breakfast. Go home come back tomorrow. Good for you working here. Yes, has been very good is taking me from being fulltime addict to be in a part-time adage, which is a lot better than being a fulltime attic. So six clog over morning and show up his so does wonders for me actually, what do you down to once you drug intake, the moment at the moment is alcohol and called hash? Vowed to about us about ten visited the place used to be a Copenhagen city council drug addicts treatment center, but in the year two thousand they moved it out into the countryside, far away from the mean streets of Copenhagen, then one of the rehab customers Janney. Paxson was her name suggested turning it into a drug addicts. Run hotel, Johnny has a terrible life story. She was sexually abused as a little go by her grandfather grew up looking for strong man to protect her to cut with the gang leader who became hooked on heroin. She to she was working as a hairdresser at Copenhagen airport. She says when her colleagues went to lunch, she went to the toilets to stick a needle in her vein. She started working as a prostitute to pay for her habits. Contracted the aids virus ended up having children taken away by the authorities and living on the streets. How miserable life might have come to a miserable end right there. But that's not what happened into treatment. And in that treatment, I got a good idea. And that was hotel. You and what happened was someone Sadie. It's someone in the community. They add to take a risk that was crazy. We never dancer, a risk, we own that we have to write everything down and own. I own, what if it's so safe that we don't take risk. So what if I run with the money? So what so makes them you what the problem if Israel that we want this people to change? Then we have to take risk the risk that kind of leaps out at you though. Apparently in literal way, is, of course that the staff here. I'm not ex- addicts helping actual addicts is what they're about one hundred drugs users go to treatment to be clean two years after. Ten of them, would it be clean five would be dead and rest of them would be begging in use. So it was not interesting from you to make a place where you have to clean because the big pot would not be. But doesn't that perhaps understandably freakout? The customers may be those who have worry don't come here. But sometimes the customer come, and they don't know what kind of hotel is that think, oh is cheap. We go there, and I always tell them and then some have what about my pet and my and really is like every other hotel. If you have really expensive watch, I wouldn't put it on a bed and leave the hotel once that was a customer, that got stolen his back and that really hurts because. It was the customer, Nick stole. And that was so good. What's that? It wasn't this staff. This place costs mainly in rent and salaries four hundred thousand euros a year to run. Two thirds come from the welfare services. A third from renting out the seminar room and paying guests who Johnny assures me, a numerous on the weekends. And in the woman months, the staff like kitchen hand, Kenneth, you wonder, how be coping if this place wasn't here, would you hopeful? Now. What's your mom would like to get some education in kitchen? So, yeah, that's my plan to get some what calling the flex job, five hours a day in more more more more and then just a full-time at the end. That's my plan cooking. Yeah. Cooking. So just bedding down in my drug addicts hotel. It is very quiet. But that's a good thing, right? The stuff off taking them methadone, or the ten th Biro ever, managing their addiction, as best they can with job an income away back to a pro-life an I'm guessing a hotel room in Copenhagen for seventy euros is including breakfast. It's an unusual win win situation. But it feels like it is one, nevertheless night till Nord some d-w Copenhagen nice. That's it for today.

I'll be diving into some big issues like this country's devastating maternal mortality rate. The rise is of astrology and a little thing called the presidential election. Listen to next question. It comes out every Thursday on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Pass or wherever you get your favorite shows. Welcome to invention the production of iheartradio. Hey Welcome to invention. My name is Robert Lamb. And I'm Joe McCormack and we're back this week with part two of our exploration of fire technology and specifically the match the humble match the enticing match the intoxicating executing match what. I'm getting carried away. Yes in our last episode. We we really covered a lot of ground. We started with an ancient earth incapable of sustaining fire. Fire and we moved onto humanity's earliest uses of the pilfered flame from there. We discovered the great leap forward into fire. Creation technology namely fire drills Dell's and Flint and pyrite or flint and steel and we also talked about fuel manufactured fuel such as chopping wood and create. You know creating more suitable types of fuel for your fire but also specialized fuel and this led to little sticks of wood for moving fire from one place is to another and ultimately the origins of the sulfur match in which a little A little piece of wood is then dipped into sulfur to create ate a piece of Of Fuel Lights up very readily allows you to transfer fire from one place to another right now. One of the things we talked about it in the last episode and we needed to make as a very clear distinction. was that the sulphur match. That was very invented. In ancient China may also have existed in ancient Rome. According to a few references says there this was a chemical match and that was used to quickly catch fire but it was not a friction match automatic. That you would be able to like By striking it across a surface right if you were to travel back in time and to to To China at the time uh request a match and then attempt to strike it you would just be a May match destroyer right in people. Would we wondering what you're trying to do. Why are you rubbing? This special is the term for it. the light bringing slave. Yeah why are you taking our light bringing slaves and just destroying them against a brick wall Yeah but they would still be quite it useful even though they can only be ignited by existing heat or flame because they'd be useful for say transferring fire from one place to another. You WanNa take fire say out of a pot and and light a candle or something. Yeah in one of the I think the Big Day comes certainly go back and listen to that episode. If you haven't but I think one of the big take comes in and one of the biggest discoveries for me was just thinking about fire as a process as a thing that happens and then all these fire technologies are ways of managing that process to transform an event event into a tangible substance. Yeah a lot of times that means sort of putting the fire and kind of suspended animation like reducing the fire as as much as possible without actually extinguishing it to make it manageable And this was also something we talked about. As an ancient technology that existed probably even before for humans had the ability to make their own fires They had various methods. They'd come up with to carry fire around without it going out So for example people we talked about the possessions of Otzi. The iceman who was found in the Italian Alps in nineteen ninety one. This Neolithic Mummy who's frozen there in the glacier and one of the things he he had on him was a little container made out of Birchbark that appeared to be for carrying coals around could take a coal out of one fire. Put it in this little container container rapid and leaves and you'd have a coal that would continue to burn for hours in case you need to make camp really quickly. You know one thing. I kept thinking about talking about in the last episode. Is the Disney Christmas. Carol in which crotchet played by Mickey Mouse brings home a hot coal from Ebeneezer scrooges stove. Move to to light his own stove at home. Oh I I don't know if I even remember this. I believe that is the case unless I missed remembering there is. I'm sure you're right if it wasn't bad at some other version of a Christmas Carol that I've seen it wasn't doubting saying I'm not aware it's also possible that it wasn't crash at bringing home the co but perhaps scrooge bringing home a hot coal from his office place To ignite some small fire at his home. He is all about efficiency. Yeah but but you know it it it makes a lot more percents now that one really gets down and consider as the the pain of having to start a fire you know it makes sense to bring that hot coal home if you have the ability to transfer of transferring now in this episode we are going to be getting into the origins of the actual friction match but I started to wonder okay so we know based on the last episode food that there were several things that were called a match before the friction match existed. So where does this term a match. Come from yeah. We mentioned Mandarin Mandarin Terminology. We mentioned a little Latin but as James Wozniak points out in his matches the manufacturer fire from two thousand five published in the Journal of Chemical Technology Technology. The word match seems to come from the French mesh a I think a and this would be a wick as a lamp and it likely refers back to the Latin and Might Mix. I believe it is Mixer mixer which would be the work of a lamp but the key technology that led to the naming of the match etched Dixie. It seems was what is known as the slow match. Now this is something. That's probably going to be confusing yet again. Because this has some things in common with matches them today in the matches we've been talking about other things not in common right. The slow match was essentially a slow burning cord or twine fuse Early Musketeers and soldiers used to ignite early firearms and cannons to put it in pirate terms for everybody to because this may ring a bell the legendary pirate Edward blackbeard teach who lives sixteen eighty to seventeen. Eighteen is said to have twisted slow matches under his hat like in his hair and then they'd be lit on both sides to frighten his enemies slash victims. So when you hear the phrase slow match you need to think fuse it. It is like a rope like object that has been made to burn slowly and beyond. That's the other thing when you think fuse don't think a fire cracker fuse like you have probably some some experience with today like cartoon fuse whereas just zipping around really quickly and there's just a faster transfer of that spark to the explosive explosive. No this would be a slow smouldering string twine cord type objects. Yeah so yeah. Generally you're talking about some rope or cord. Awards soaked in potassium nitrate which is a key constituent of gun powder and then it would be dried. You'd light it. You'd you'd blow out the flame but then a red imber. We continue you to burn and work. Its way down the court so really if you if you think of a fuse Like a fire cracker fuse without all the sparking. Anything about going really slowly. That's essentially clue what's happening very similar thing actually to the carrying of the coal in the In the birchbark container. It's something to keep a low fire smoldering for a long period of time that can be used to reignite something else quickly. Yeah basically getting that fire into a state of suspended animation words there when you need it but it's also you're not just like carrying around a big flaming torch especially if you're having to deal with gunpowder though as we'll discuss in a minute it didn't come without dangers. Yes so another another place. Some of you may have seen this as you would. You would typically find the slow match physically attached to a weapon such as a musket or clipped to the match lock mechanism of a match. Lock Weapon Yes for a really great recent media example. If you've seen the two thousand fifteen horror movie the witch directed by Robert Eggers There is a scene in the movie. Were actually throughout the movie The characters carry around Musket and it is a match lock Musket. There's a scene where the father played by okay Ralph Ellison is trying to hunt. He's trying to shoot a rabbit And you can see it. Has This long tail of chords sticking out of it. Sometimes the carry area the cord sort of wrapped around it looks like clete of some kind on the stock and in the scene where he tries to hunt a rabbit. You can watch him going through these kind of Tedious dangerous laborious steps of like pouring out the powder packing it getting the slow match lit and blowing on it to make it smolder and then clipping it into the hook like it. It looks like it would be very difficult weapon to use and in one sense it is like but you might wonder watching all of this laborious stuff why was the match lock. Musket actually an invention. What would this be an improvement over So I was reading about this. Apparently previously gunpowder based weapons would usually have to be lit by hand. So try to imagine that like in the moment the gunner would have to carefully set fire to to the priming powder which was in the small receptacle called the Flash Pan and they would have to do that by hand and then of course the ignition of the powder in the flash PAN would intern set off the main charge inside the barrel and then propelled the ball out toward the target. But just imagine trying to do this. Aim a weapon at a target while you're trying to carefully fully flight the Flash Pan by hand. Yeah I mean it. It seems borderline impossible and generally weapons before this period. We're not hand-held you'd be talking about cannons as you know the mounted artillery and stuff But the Musket was something that you wanted to be able to hold in your hands and aim and the match lock provided a huge advantage each year by freeing the musket carrier's hands to hold an aim the weapon so here after you pack the weapons so you put the powder for the main charge down the barrel you'd pack the ball in you smash it down with the stick and then what you would do is set the end of the slow match. This fused like cord. You'd set the end of that burning you'd blow on it and get smoldering and then you clip the burning end of the slow match into a little metal arm called Serpentine and then you put the powder and the Flash Pan and after you've done all that you could aim the weapon and pull the trigger. And what would happen when you pull. The trigger is that the metal serpentine would automatically lower the smoldering slow match down into the Flash Pan to ignite the charge and this was a big improvement over the handwriting of the powder As you can probably tell from the description it still going to be very slow firing laborious. It could still be dangerous because you'd probably be like trying to manage a burning earning slow match as you're like pouring powder into various parts of the gun So th there are several drawbacks of course to the match. Lock Musket Number One. You would have some. I'm kind of giveaways to the enemy right. So you're trying to line up to shoot at night right you'd be having to light these fires and have the slow match burning. You would be able to smell it and then of course there's the danger of this smoldering thing next stole this powder you're juggling around. This makes me wonder you know all these various First Person Shooter Video Games. He often often devote a great deal of detail to how guns are loaded and reloaded and brought back into position for firing. But it happens really fast vast. I wonder if if there is a game out there that gives even like a halfway accurate depiction of the use of a of a match luck weapon. Yeah Yeah like a fifteenth century first person shooter where it takes you know at least thirty seconds to load every shot. Yeah that'd be that'd be interesting call of duty game right there. Well I think maybe it it actually could be. I think it would be. It would be interesting. Yeah I mean. There's at least one or two archaic weapons in the Fallout Games. But you know it's all on auto reload you just put freeloading just takes awhile. It would be interesting if there is a game where you you actually had to do this maneuver with one joystick and another with the the other joystick and whereas so that actually reloading this weapon required a more of a cognitive responsibility on the part of the player. And if you screw up all your reloading it literally explodes in your face and kills you and then but so there's a funny thing here where the progression of the firing mechanism in In gun technology technology actually goes kind of opposite of what we've been talking about in the progress of of fire lighting in matches. Because you go in history from the match lock Musket to the Flint Lock Musket and the Flint. Lock was said to be an improvement. Because you didn't have to have a fire lit there instead. You just have the powder in your flash pan. Dan and it would be ignited by the striking of the flint. That happens when you release the hammer interesting now. Of course that has its own problems for the flint lock. I think there was a greater chance of the weapon misfiring. Maybe you don't get a good spark or something but anyway I thought that was interesting context for the idea of the match. You know when you think about the way it works works with the weapon is. It's there to be a fire. That's ready whenever you need it. Yeah and this is really. I mean this is key to so many technologies right. I mean again coming back to even the the hot water heater in household. You know it's how do you make sure the fire is there when you need it but in a safe way in a way that it is not going to endanger body so as far as matches the match lauck and the slow match basically with Neon Rights that the match natch was just a you know basically with with more of a modern matches just a way of having a fire ready for you when you need it and so it's quite reasonable transfer of names ames here to talk about the wooden match with the legacy of the slow match. Yeah I I think that's great because ultimately what we're going to get to with the friction matches that you don't don't need to have a fire burning at all and yet it's still ready the moment you need it right and it's going to be a little bit more like the the the flint locks in here just talking about so so we discussed in the last episode. How humans have spent a Lotta time poking around in the fire and using fire among other means to understand the nature of various substances? And that's eventually they essentially how we got to the notion of using sulfur or potassium nitrate even though these substances. We figured out how to In some cases refine them and then what happens when you add fire to them. Well they spark or they explode or they they they they catch fire more readily than other substances and they can ultimately like sulfur. can If coating the end of a little stick can make that stick a better Fuel to use for transferring flame from one point to another now the flame bringing power our sulfur as we know goes back way into the ancient world that was known about by the ancient Chinese by the ancient Romans but there are going to be new chemicals coming online on line that may serve this job even better yes. Humans began to uncover new substances such as is even new elements such as phosphorus which in the seventeenth century became the first new element not known since ancient times and some arguments have been made for other chemists southern discoveries having been Eban taken place earlier around the same time but credit is typically given to the German alchemist hitting brand in sixteen sixty nine now a quick note on Alchemy alchemy which is a rich topic unto itself. But we're largely dealing with a proto scientific mixture of chemical research and a Colt magic the continuation relation of mystery traditions etc.. I love the period of Alchemy. It's so culturally and historically interesting especially when you're thinking about about the history of science because it is time win. In some cases real knowledge is advancing right alongside what people believed were equivalent advances in knowledge about like Demon -nology and how you know how to do spells At the same time that people really are learning things about say Chemistry in the curing of certain diseases. Yeah like for instance in bronze case he was seeking the legendary philosopher's stone. Now this is a substance of said to have miraculous powers it was capable of transforming metals into Do other metals. This is the lead into gold scenario but it could also provide immortality. That's why it factors into a Harry Potter novel for instance but Braun decided saw in your in your distilling it down to a wide material that glowed in the dark and this was phosphorus miraculous lessor miraculous bearer of light. Who would have known that P P was so illuminating? Indeed it was all right. We're GONNA take a quick break when we come back. We we will return to the mysteries of the Iran. We will talk about phosphorus Ever been knocked down. You know suffered a setback. Fired left out it happens. It happens a Mike. Bloomberg middle class kid worked his way through college. I got a job started a family boom fired at thirty nine. What did Mike do us? Do we got backup dove back in. He had an idea designing new computer able to crunch data and process information in a unique way he built it he sold it. He built more. He sold more. He built a team. You built a company when He created twenty thousand jobs. Bloomberg is a doer. This is Michael. Douglas I played a president movies. This is real world. This is Our World Mike Bloomberg has takes to win unite the country find some common ground between Democrats Republicans and then lead the way a leadership leadership Mike. We'll get it. I'm Mike Bloomberg candidate for president. How do you judge someone not by what they say by what they do? We're a nation of doers. What's Mike Bloomberg about doing things? A middle class kid worked his way through college and Entrepreneur Bloomberg built a global news and information in business from scratch mayor of diverse progressive city. Mike Bloomberg rebuilt after nine eleven. Creating nearly five hundred thousand jobs improving healthcare and in public schools. Now he's running for president and all right we're back so as one might expect given its alchemy. ICAL origins phosphorus. This was a secret I who was traded and it was sold but eventually it became known beyond these chambers of secret. It's most impressive attribute. Is that it instantly elite combust in air making it a nasty element in many ways and we see we see this today. With the use of white phosphorus munitions which popped up in the twentieth century and then they are still used today by some military's despite the fact that this and other incendiary weapons have been banned by multiple international national laws. White Phosphorus munitions can produce additional like terrible burns the burning particles as well as harmful favors. Verse Yeah I was reading an article about this Reuters from two thousand nine because I'd tried to sort this out before it's sort of complicated confusing. Because phosphorus I baste incendiaries have both legal and illegal uses wore these days And that can lead to you know arguments about specific uses so white phosphorus. Today it would be used as a munition is this colorless or sometimes kind of yellow waxy substance. I I've read the this. This Reuters article mentioned that it sometimes smells like garlic. I did not know that But that it ignites in the air Very easily temperatures of something like thirty degrees Celsius or about eighty six degrees Fahrenheit and it can be very hard to put out once it's ignited But apparently common uses of white phosphorus prosperous in addition to just being direct. Incendiary weapon are in like tracer ammunition so to help see where where the line of fire is going right if anyone's ever watched any of those old war to World War Two cockpit footage of Of of of machine gun fire. You're seeing the tracers though the lights that mark which direction the the bullets are going Another common us for it apparently is in marketing targets. which would mean you know? So you need some kind of target flare so you're trying to aim artillery or something like that you can mark the target on the ground that you're trying to hit with white phosphorus And then finally to create smokescreens which would be full in hiding the maneuver of friendly troops. Yeah so basically comes down to how are you using it or using it at to illuminate or using it to obscure more. Are you using it in a way. That is either intentionally or ordinarily intentionally Incendiary against human beings or your human infrastructure using it to burn people and buildings right that does seem to be the main difference of the uses. I mentioned have been more generally permitted it'd but it is against international law to use white phosphorus as an incendiary weapon especially against civilians or an areas. Where civilians are clustered? Yeah and this this. I think think leads to disputes. Because they're like these controversial uses where the forces who used said well we were using it for one of these permitted reasons in their critics. Say No you you were using it as an incendiary weapon. Yeah Yeah I remember I grew up in house. So where we we you know. We talked a lot about military technology. And and my my dad always they always stressed the just horrible -ness of incendiary weapons so just the flame thrower which video game can look pretty cool until you think about what a flame thrower actually is the what a horrible weapon it is and likewise phosphorus remember him telling me that like if you if you would have particles of phosphorus in your skin they would have to immerse your your like your arm in water than to remove it Thus negating the the flair ability avenue when it's exposed to oxygen or free atmospheric oxygen. Yeah that goes a everything. I've read about phosphorus. Direct weapon is just a total nightmare nightmare but all this would come later. We're fast forwarding a little bit with the phosphorus weapons because it I phosphorus when I crept out of the alchemists workshop. It was one of these substances that clearly had a lot of potential. And you didn't have to be a war pig to see it because no no surely. This is an element that would enable one to produce instant fire. Because that's what it does if combust in the air itself. Yeah what. Eighty something degrees Fahrenheit him in the. That's that's unusual. Yeah like even in. Yeah I mean because we're talking about even like in a cold environment with minimal friction. He would be able to to reach that point however it would take a good one hundred and fifty years after its discovery. Goverry For us to see really the the beginnings of of actual technology that utilized it and this would be the pyro phosphorus fire carrier that came around. This was neck explains was quote a sealed glass ampoule containing a finely divided. pyro for at powder powder free of phosphorus which ignited spontaneously when the tube was broken and the contents scattered and he has the power for power's are chemicals in finely powdered altered and reactive state which catch fire on exposure to air So yeah so you'd have sealed capsule that you would rupture in order to either combine things or just just exposed to the air and instantly create a flame which I don't know that version of the of the instant strike alight sounds a little scarier than the normal match yeah. I was reading about a few really terrifying versions of this technology. They rolled out early on so one was a villain Holmberg. Berg created a mixture that could be sprinkled under dry cotton which would cause it to catch. Fire Okay then Robert Hair live seventy and eighty one to eighteen. Fifty eight had a version version That again entailed a sealed glass tube but another. I think the scariest one is known as Roseling Z- pyro forest and I couldn't find any information on who roseling is in this scenario what their first name was Cetera but the description I ran across. Is that it was the the powder was packed on top of tobacco in pipe. And you ignited it by sucking air through it. I think rose lingers uncle of mollusc now now another one that comes up is the phosphoric taper or the ethereal match and this is a sealed glass tube with wax paper and phosphorus incited. You'd break like the tube. According to his net quote with the aid of the teeth or otherwise I've read about these yes and withdrawal. The phosphorus impregnated taper into the air. These were indeed and not only. Were these dangerous but they were also pricey so ultimately you have technology this just not practical for everyday use for for for two huge reasons. It costs too much and you might blow your face off. Yeah I think I've read about at least a couple of matches along these lines. That were like some kind kind of glass container that you were. The most people would rupture with their teeth and that would start the fire. Yeah Yeah even without things blowing up. You're breaking glass cylinder career with your teeth. It's just that alone gives me all over us. Now there were some other advancements made in fire creation technology that are worth At least a touching on on one came from Johann Wolfgang Dover Reiner who lives seventeen eighty eighteen forty nine. He was German chemist who in eighteen twenty three created What some dubbed? The first lighter. The dogo Reiner's lamp which Also known as a hydrogen lighter hydrogen produced from zinc passes passes through a jet with sulfuric acid over spongy platinum on a platinum wire. The gas ignites producing flame. So the sponge here catalyzes a reaction reaction with oxygen heats the catalyst igniting the hydrogen this. I've seen pictures of it. Does it looks kind of like a I mean. It looks like a lamp. If you were just solid sitting on a shelf in an antique store you might think it looks kind of neat you might not realize what it is. But he's apparently had a good hundred year run as being being a good way of producing flame. Yeah if I were just looking at this I would not gas. It was something that produced flame. I would guess that it was a lamp or some kind some the carried. Yeah Yeah just. At first glance it just looks like a lamp another five technology innovation at the time. Mentioning is the pneumatic tinderbox. Also known as a light syringe. A Fire Piston. Wow now it depended on the rapid stroke of a piston to generate Heat to ignite tinder and interestingly enough. This is one of these inventions that that emerged in Europe around that time but essentially was a much older southeast East Asian invention which is to say that the technique certainly shows up there. I hundreds of years earlier but it's unclear. If and to what extent this directly influenced European fire Pistons. Or it's just you know much later Europeans got around to it through other technological roundabouts. You know one thing. I'm really picking up on from these past couple of episodes is the general impression that fire creation technology gets around fast. uh-huh yeah I mean basically comes down to the fact that any human culture is is going to need it like it is such an important part of of the human experience like you need to be able to create fire and so it's a new kind of match like that that's going to spread if it's a new element you're only gonNA be able to keep that a secret for so long because the potential there is just too high all right so we've talked about chemicals elements friction. I think you can see where this is going. Maybe we need to take a break in the we come back. We can talk about the invention of the friction match. Remember how the fourteen year old version of yourself felt. If you could write to that kid what would you say. I'm Chelsea Chelsea. Arson join me on my podcast. deering rocker for each week.

We're finally here reaching the point. Where something more or less like the modern matches possible right so the invention of the friction match the match that you liked by striking across the surface is often credited to a single individual? A British chemist named John Walker. who lived lived in the nineteenth century in a town called Stockton on tees which is in county? Durham up in northern England. Now I've come across a few sort of conflicting claims of primacy though Mo- most sources cite Walker but for example there is a nineteen twenty two dictionary of applied chemistry written by the prolific British chemists. Sir Thomas Edward Thorpe and it claims quote in eighteen sixteen friction matches tipped with a composition containing phosphorus are stated to have been manufactured in Paris by Francois Garrone who by gentle and others is regarded as the first maker of the phosphorus friction match. But I'm not sure exactly what to do with claims like this because pretty much all modern sources I can find. Give the credit to Walker The Walker wouldn't create his invention until later in in the eighteen twenties so this precedes Walker by. At least ten years inthorp himself does claim that Walker invented the first quote practical and useful all matches ignited by friction. So I guess he's saying that maybe that according to Thorpe at least somebody else in France created a friction match earlier but but it was not practical and useful enough to count and that kind of raises a general question like when we give somebody credit for an invention. How impractical does version of an invention need before? It doesn't count it all right right and we discussed this a little bit. We just this time and time again on the show really but it came up when we're or discussing cocktails with with Jeff Beachfront Berry like if one thing to be able to make the cocktail in your kitchen and other to be able to serve it. It's one thing to be able to create something like a match in your workshop but to produce it on scale to be able to actually get it out. There is a dependable way of sparking aflame yen and Thorpe doesn't really go into more detail so I don't know what exactly was so impracticable about Francois Mitterrand's friction match but it sounds like it. It didn't work very well often. or at least according to Thorpe's Diagnosis here So so here. We're left with John Walker. He's the one who almost always gets the credit he was born in seventeen. Eighty one I was reading a blog post about him by Andrew Haines for the Pharmaceutical Journal and it described Walker's father as a grocer draper and a druggist. I just a lot of jobs. John was the third son in the family and originally he was on the road to become a surgeon which was of course a very exciting road to occupy coupon at this time and place you know late eighteenth century England. He's probably pretty close to the medical colleges of Scotland CR episodes about the casket from from last October. If you want more wonderful medical mischief of that time and place So he served an apprenticeship with the town's head surgeon and he was eventually appointed an assistant surgeon in the town but John Walker had a bit of a problem with this career path. He was reportedly quite squeamish and he could not stomach the sight of blood and all those gaping holes in human bodies and ultimately this led him to quit his career path and say I just can't do surgery. Well that's understandable that would have been a tough tough hurdle to get over especially at that time. Yeah so he reversed course. He left surgery behind and he went back to study pharmacy in Durham And in York and after he completed aided education in pharmacy He moved back home and in eighteen. Nineteen he opened his own. Whatever you WANNA call it for this period and apothecary pharmacy shop That kind of business in Stockton on tees his hometown so friction matches are another one of these inventions. That is at least alleged to to have been partially discovered by accident. So how did this work John Walker already had an interest in fire production and impractical chemistry and sometime in the eighteen twenties he started creating and selling a mixture of potassium chlorate and antimony sulfide bound on together with gum Arabic and he called this flammable product percussion powder so he's already making a flammable mixture. The on a regular Taylor basis and selling it in his drum shop but one day in eighteen twenty six John Walker was preparing a mixture of the percussion powder and while mixing chemicals together other. He used a little wooden stick to stir them which of course became coated at one end. In this lighting fluid and the story goes that he happened to scrape this stick across the rough stone of his hearth and then the chemical coded part burst into flames now. This is the kind of accidental discovery that could if situations were were were just right or just wrong enough perhaps it could. Well be the last discovery you make. It could be a really really final. Eureka moment Yeah E. say if it was too close to the rest of his powder big massive there or something but Walker immediately knew that he had important new product on hand. One that could I usually produce fire from no original fire with little effort and it was very portable to boot so on April seventh. Eighteen twenty-seven we know from his diaries diaries. That was the day he began selling these early strike matches in his pharmacy under the name. Friction lights now. The ones he sold were made by hand hand out of cardboard and later little wooden splints I read that. He apparently hired people from the town to just sit around cutting up. Tiny little wooden splints blends for him and then they would coat the ends of them in potassium chloride antimony sulfide Bound together with gum Arabic. And he sold the friction lights with a piece of glass paper or sandpaper. And the instructions were to fold the sandpaper over the head of the match. And then pull the stick out sharply Now the sandpaper in this case case did not have any special chemical properties of its own. It was just regular sandpaper. It was just there to be a very rough surface to provide the the heat from the friction when striking because there's not necessarily going to be a brick on hand to strike it off right and the friction would ignite the dried paste. And then you would have your flame but walker or did not acquire a patent on his process and this turned out the worst for him within just a few years other producers in almost immediately swooped swooped in began selling copycats Some of the best known friction like copycats were produced by a Samuel Jones of London and these friction matches ashes were known at the time as Lucifer's apparently they had more Not just the antimony sulfide but they had more direct sulphur content they might have just been sulfur dipped and and the name Lucifer has something to do with the fact that they were. Sulfur dipped as from the sulphurous smell. That would be released when you ignite and also it would smell like the fires. As of Hell match the brimstone tenders and then there were other copycats also who were soon on the market Thorpe mentioned sulfur dipped competitors sold sold in London by Jones. Competitors Jeff Watts and by Richard Bell and company which sold their has improved Lucifer's improved Lucifer's that sounds like a redemption ark for the for the fallen angel. Yeah apparently John Walker himself was not a fan of the name Lucifer's he didn't like it. I don't know if that was if that was him being precious about his invention or if he was a pious man or what interesting But for some reason he wasn't into that that it also is kind of a clunky name right. It's one thing to say. Hey do you have a light. Do you have a match. Excuse me so do you have any Lucifer's on your person. I mean that's why go with the three syllables. When all you need is one just call them devils? Yeah Devil would work again just a light a match like the rolls off the tongue. A lot easier has thou prince of darkness in my pocket. Do you have a spare Bielsa Bob. Despair with me a MEPHISTOPHELES. Perhaps so yeah I mean once you get into a bunch of funky devil names easier just to go back to light. So I've got a really funny but wait. That does remind me. Of course the other part of the name is Lucifer. Means bringer of light. Of course it does so it is a great name. It's a double. Yeah I'd also a little clunky yeah So th there's a great addendum to the story of. It just happened to come across so in the English town of stockton-on-tees this town in northern England that John Walker is from where the friction match was invented. There is a statue I choose to honor John Walker. It was erected in nineteen seventy seven. which would have been the one hundred fiftieth anniversary of the first year that he sold the matches we'd remember member that was eighteen twenty-seven but there's a twist I was reading about in In The Times of London apparently in nineteen ninety the borough oh council of stockton-on-tees found out that the town statue of John Walker was based on the likeness of the wrong John Walker. Now it had been made aid from an etching of a London actor named John Walker who never invented anything as far as we know never even visited Stockton on tees and after they found this out they kept it a secret until just a few years ago. There was some newspaper articles that came out about it. It would be like if you know a centuries stories from now someone decided to to to create a statute to honor the physicist Brian Cox and but instead of the dashing shing scientists they found an image of the perhaps less dashing but certainly charismatic our Brian. You how dare you speak. Ezekiel of the actor Brian Cole. Younger years I imagine he was. He was more dashing but generally he is. I would say he is is more of a severe look To modern audiences people who know him from like manhunter on in fact that may be the earliest film. I can remember seeing with With with him in it I really don't have any familiarity with the younger Brian. Cock he's got a small role in the early seventies film. Nicholas and Alexandra. About the last family the Romanovs in which he plays plays Trotsky. Yeah is he recognizable. I don't know it's been a long time since I saw the movie. But but he he. He's in there all right. Yeah I just mainly associated with A. There's some bear of a man with a very haggard look invoice very different from the physicist. So did they back to the the statue of John Walker. Did they fix it does it did they. I haven't read about six. I don't know I do not know the resolution of this story. I just know it was the wrong guy I mean. I guess when you're dealing with historical figures of of this caliber I mean what does it matter. I mean at at least we're remembering their name and their accomplishments even if we essentially have an actor playing them in the statue what if that statue of Robocop in Detroit was based on the wrong long robocop. Oh now that would be blasphemous. Yeah like like the ROBOCOP. Three ROBOCOP was it. Wait was a different actor in robocup three. I'm sure it was or the robocop the TV show robocop. He would not be the same. or The reboot robocop. Oh that would be the worst That was not good Hackett. I haven't seen it. Well actually. Actually it was one of those movies. I I had complex thoughts about it. It felt like a movie that might have been a better movie in an earlier. Draft of the script gripped but the script has been rewritten to make it worse that that was my intuition. Okay that sounds about right back to two matches. You're talking talking about the the use of the sandpaper folding it over. This brings back so many memories of of using matches as a kid and and sort of getting comfortable with them because match especially. If you're told to be careful with matches enough it can be intimidating to strike one sure especially if you're using the little cardboard matches matches that are in the little cardboard Foley apparatus those you sometimes have to get your fingernails rather close Perhaps uncomfortably close to to the tip of the match to do the strike. And they have to sort of backtrack really quickly and it might get a little warm on the tips of your fingers. And sometimes you're tempted to do the fold holdover method which can result in just destroying a match because you might be a pinching it to pull the head off. Yeah you pulled the head off or it's just there's there's kind of like taste and then it's gone. Yeah funny enough. I know the exact minute mechanical complaint. You're talking about and likewise. Sometimes you'd have like the big box awesome matches like a proper fireplace box of matches and you would use it so much. The strike plate would be a the sandpaper area would be worn down. We couldn't even affectively strike anything anymore and and then there were people have various tricks to right. I mean you see people who could do the finger fingernail Striking of the match or use it. A belt buckle or brick or something. I never had any luck with any extracurricular striking. That's like pony boy in Dalley. Kennedy's staff plus thinking like you fingernail. That always seemed a little dangerous. Like couldn't you risk getting a little like match head up underneath your fingernail. That just doesn't unpleasant real tough to care about this probably so still. It beats biting through a glass cylinder right. A one hundred percent agree all right so I think we have to call this episode there. But we're going to be back for one.

The Day We Had A Conversation With The Governor of NJ

"Here's the thing. Saving money with Geico is almost better than playing pickup basketball. Because there's always that guy who joins your game. He never passes the rock. He constantly bricks threes, and who completely hack you, and then put his hands up and say no foul, no foul with GEICO. It's easy to switch and save on car insurance, no need to fake an ankle sprain because you're absolutely exhausted so switching, save with Gyco. It's almost better than sports.

Thank you Christie and all the lunch ladies. Even the guys who are lunch ladies. We love you. Thanks for putting on the hairnets all right. Let's get into the three things you need to know now what's going on? All right well. The US now, the hardest hit country in the world from the coronavirus cases are now passing about eighty, five thousand, and the global count has passed half a million. There is some good news though that doesn't mean. Everybody is dying of the nearly eighty two thousand cases that were seen in China over seventy, four thousand have recovered about thirty. Thirty two hundred died in all and experts say that they cannot stress enough. Following social distancing rules is key to flattening the curve, so stay away from people. Wash your hands. Do the right thing and we will get past this. The newest military branch space force is doing stuff now. They conducted a national security space. Launch Cape Canaveral yesterday and they sent. Sent a satellite up to assist in military communications and finally powerball is taking a hit as well. We talked to somebody who was going to her job at the Lotto Office and they are saying that they're going to change some stuff over there as well. They're cutting the minimum jackpots in half. Originally, it was forty million dollars. Now it's going to be. Be just twenty million dollars. They're saying they expected to grow slower as well because when people aren't winning, they're also not buying tickets right now. I would say quicko by bit. We all know that that doesn't affect your chances of winning, so just know that your powerball is going to be about half of what it normally is, and those are three things. All right. Gandhi, thank you so much. One of our highlights yesterday. The we had the United States. Surgeon General on with US yesterday. And what an incredible interview! That was such a fantastic response. Is there a possibility? We could hit that coming up next the full interview. A lot of people didn't get it. And, even if you did hear it, there was so much information that went by so fast. It's about ten twelve minutes long. No big deal. Let's take a break. Come back, and let's revisit our visit with the surgeon. General's pretty cool. Thank you for listening. We'll be back after this I anna gone. Hey, what's up as Halsey? With Elvis Duran and the morning so. Bring out your beauty was son care inspired by Hawaii? Hades gone an Hawaiian. Tropic sunscreen has perfected a late non greasy formula. That's great for your daily beauty routine. You know that Sun Protection Daily is essential stock up today available Amazon. Joe Show? One of the weird things about this show is, we could be talking about something very stupid. Going into would go into something very very important. You know what I'm saying. We just kind of switch gears the middle of a thought. We have no consistency which is I think what makes this show magic anyway. So before we get into a replay of Dr. Dr Adams from yesterday. The surgeon general for our country, which was so amazing. can talk about the Kardashians last night, can we? Can we these two conversations together? Source. The WHO was fighting with WHO, and who kicked? WHO IN THE VAGINA? What style Courtney Accordion Cam had a fight because they're always fighting now and courtney's been wanting to really leave the show, and that's been like the new storyline, and so they took a little bit of a break, and then last night it near the end of the show. They say stuff to get up each other's nerves, whatever and they wound up like fighting, and so they're like fighting each other, but it's the dumbest like they're kicking each other in their privates, and then Khloe gets involved and she tries to, but you really doesn't so so you? You Watch the whole thing without turning it all. Of course, and it was such a tease because it was near the very end, and they like to be continued next. Ask You. Gandhi Daniel is that. Is that like a girl? Fight thing you kick each other in the in the lady parts really. I've never done that. Also. No? I used to fight. We would go. It was an all out brawl, white hair, pulling tackling to the ground beating each other, there was no to the vagina, but that did make me laugh. It was yeah, it was very interesting. It was. Okay wait okay now they're okay. They're throwing each other on the floor. And Oh my God. Oh, my God, they look like Kangaroos kicking each other. Hoping beating each other up and I want hair extensions to come out, but I don't know what. Roll. Yeah okay, we gotta move on, but doing there pulling weeds. They're kicking their. You're kicking your own sisters. Private Parts on national television. Is that how? Yeah I. I guess I, don't know. Daniel. Tucker fought we. We know we're eleven years difference with the. ABC getting yelled at by straight. Nate, because we have to we, we now have to go from Vagina picking fights with the Kardashian sisters into the surgeon, General of the United States Dr Jerome, Adams. Merkley cover a lot of stuff. I mean you may be listening for ten minutes on the way to work. I gotTa give you as much entertainment as we can cram in their plan. So yesterday we were we were fortunate and honored. We're fortunate enough and honored to have our surgeon general of the United. States on the air with us Dr Jerem. Adams who you see in these White House briefings almost every day, and he really has this extra level this higher level of edge to him when he gives the reports in contrast to the other people on. On on that stage like doctor, FAUCI and Dr Burks they've the three of them. Make the best team I believe so from yesterday. I want to I I. WanNa. Play this back because there's a lot of information that goes by really fast, our conversation with Dr Jerome at the surgeon general from yesterday. Here we go all right. Let's go to our guest. Dr Jerome. Surgeon General to have him on our show. Today is quite the honor because we we must assume that he's the busiest man in medical business I'm sure he would downplay that as much as he could, but not going to allow him to listen to. This is our nation's doctor, and what's going on right now? With his pandemic? We need people. We trust people that look good that that don't look like they're from. You know from another planet. I'm serious when these doctors get on that stage at the White House. Everyday Doctor FAUCI and Dr Burks and Dr Adams I feel like we are. We are under control and we are taking very good care of so. We welcome to the show Dr Jerome. Adams good, morning Dr Adams thanks for taking time to call us today. Good Morning. You've got a busy busy busy every day I'm sure it's around the clock for your doctor Adams, but you're also a husband. You're also a parent. How are you handling this and as as a citizen? And as well as being the nation's doctor I mean. How is this affecting you personally how you doing? Well. I appreciate you. Afghan, that and I'm hanging in. There a Lotta. People don't realize the sacrifices that a lot of our public servants make in for me, I'm okay with it. This is what I signed up for, but my family. My wife, my kids. You know they miss having dead at home. The dog, my little dog Bella is getting lonely, not seeing me as much the people working the CDC at the FDA working to try to keep us safe they're out there, putting a t taking time away from their families, and in some cases putting their lives on the line I've had over six thousand of my officers on the commission. Commission core who deploy around the world to help respond to different outbreaks including the corona by so thank you for asking that at the end of the day it's my honor. I come from a family who was served in the military and It's the honor of my life to have this role when I wish it wasn't at such a a a time where. You're seeing live laws where you're seeing. People put at risk but That's what God put me here for. Having you on that stage, everyday is definitely comforting as we're getting the bad news, we we actually feel like we're getting it from someone WHO's A. I'll go ahead and say a little younger than the average age of every on the stage and. But we have full trust in what you're bringing to the table and you do bring a different level of energy and enthusiasm to something that is so serious, so let's talk about the headlines of the day because I. Know this this changes every day maybe every hour with you especially with the range of different age groups listening to our show right now. Dr Adams A. What is your headline in your message today? Well, my headline number one. If that the United States is now approaching Europe in some places the the corona virus started in China, and so we had to travel restrictions China. Then it went to Europe. Italy unfortunately New York is the new Italy the attack rate. The number of people in that city who have been diagnosed with corona virus is about the same now, or or who being diagnosed with Ronan viruses about the same as if Italy and so we want people to understand how serious this is. The new data in the United States actually suggests that we may have a younger demographic in the United States who have getting hospitalized with at risk then in those. Those other countries and we don't know why yet. Some people feel like it may be because we have such a high percentage of young people vaping and you all know that I put out an advisory last year. alerting young people to the potential dangers of vaping but anything that that implies your lungs can put you at risk for corona virus. We want people to know you can get this. You can be hospitalized from it. You can die from it, but I think more importantly. We love our grandparents. We love our set our goals and one day one day will actually look back and appreciate our parents to and I i. hope that one day look back at appreciate what I did, but we don't want to bring these diseases home. We don't WanNA bring corona virus home to a loved one and and someone who's at risk and feel like we were responsible for them, being hospitalized or dying. There's we have societal responsibility like do. You may be feeling like a million bucks? It doesn't mean you don't have it and it doesn't mean you can't give it to someone who could really really be torn apart by it by the way just turned on US surgeon general Dr Jerome Adams. Who I believe was raised right across the river in orange new. Jersey we got a hometown boy on the. East Coast Kid and it's why reach out to so many celebrities from up and down the east. Coast and people who are influencers just this morning or the? My daughter sent me a text from Lauren Gray. WHO's a number, one or number two on? TIKTOK, and she and I met New York. Lauren Gray and I did and I introduced stricter, my daughter and I said Hey Lauren. Can you help? Young people understand the importance of staying home Kylie Jenner Put out a message when I asked her. Her to I still know Roman. Atwood have stepped up yet or not but I asked him to do because my boys love him, but we've got gotta understand that my kid listen to them. and a lot of your listeners will listen to them before the listen to even the surgeon general of the United States we all need to understand the importance of staying home, voiding gatherings of ten or more, avoiding unnecessary travel to protect ourselves and protect our grandparents. My Love Wonder Nanna their pop ups. there. You go by the way in new. York is now calling the epicenter of the disease here in the United States. People between the ages of eighteen and forty nine representing over half of the state cases so when we came out of the chute with this story, although this is an older person's problem, no, it's not definitely not. A froggy is checking it from his guest bedroom in Jacksonville Florida. We're doing our show. In Oliver, kitchens and bedrooms by the way Dr out of a froggy. Do you have a question for practicing social distancing? I loved it. To that point when you guys are on the stage and the White House, you're only three inches from each other. I think that's a bad example. I just wanted to bring that. What it is a bad example and you notice that we've been better about it lately. One of the challenging things with communication if the messaging is hard, but you also sometimes can't win whenever one of us is missing from the stage. The news story wears Doctor Faustus. She wears doctor. Dr Book, but then when we're all up on stage, they say why you all up on stage. Exactly? I liked I. just want to go. Hey, now back up back up. All right FROGGY has a question. Go ahead for the doctor PAL I. Know, you've actually what am I good buddies, but I'm not. Cheese! Talks Randoms I've got a question and so many people are going to the grocery store and getting the essentials that they need, but we're also getting a lot from Amazon this morning. We've seen some stories where there are employees at Amazon. They've had to shut down some warehouses because employees have been infected. How should we be receiving our mail? That's coming everyday or these packages. Should we not bring them in our house? What's a way to make sure that we're not introducing CORONA VIRUS BY GETTING? These packages brought into our homes. There're some experiments where they've shown at the virus can live on surfaces for several hours to several days, but you have to understand those experiments using high concentration, not real life situations. What I folks actually not just what I with what I do because we're still ordering from Amazon. If you get a package, don't pull it in right away. Let it sit outside for a bit. or spray it down with life, saw or or wipe it down before you. You open it up and then open up the box and just dump everything out onto onto the floor. Because whatever's in the boxers probably been there long enough that the virus would have died and then get rid of boxing. Wash your hands and do when you're going to the grocery store. If white hands frequently make sure you weren't touching something that someone just touched a few minutes or hours ago, and then putting it on your face, touching your body. Yeah. Just keep your fingers off. Your face is really the headline. Like, don't touch your face holds. Question for Dr Adam. Keep your hands to yourself and wash up. I mean it's. It's very simple, right? Mom Mom was in the early doctor. Okay so. We've seen a lot of grocery stores and other places. They're running out of hand, sanitizers and bleach wipes and stuff like that is. Are there alternatives that you know of that could actually work like I found a bunch of hydrogen peroxide yesterday. Does that stuff work as far as cleaning surfaces and keeping the germs away? If you go to Corona Virus Dot Gov, or CDC DOT Gov there are different links to two ways that you can make up cleaning solutions with peroxide with alcohol or bleach that you may have around your house, but here's the thing we just talked about it. Everyone's going crazy over hand sanitizer. You know what's better than him. Sanitizer, good old fashioned soap and water, so just wash your hands frequently washed them after you touch something else that someone else may have touched and save the hand sanitizer for emergency situations, or when you don't have option, don't use up the hand. sanitizer otherwise could be washing your hands with soap and water. which better anyway? Are you a surgeon general Dr. Jerome is here and Danielle in her basement in New Jersey. In her has a question. Go ahead Daniel I so we're saying he keep our hands off our faces. Now I see that like it's more older people less children getting this. The children are the ones that I feel like never take their hands off their faces. They always have their hands on their faces. Because you can't tell them not to do what they don't listen, so how come more them aren't getting? Well! Here's the thing There's something about corona virus. such that people who have medical conditions or people who are older or more likely to. Come! From It, it's not to say that young people aren't getting it and can't carry it around to other people and that's what's important to remember. We know that older people are the ones who are getting hospitalized and dying disproportionately, though we're hearing more and more about young people getting it and being hospitalized, but young people are the spreaders, and so we don't want you. Bring up the GRANDMA GRANDPA and it's just like every flu. Even we tell you look if you. You gotTa snotty nose and a cough. Then you can't go to the nursing home. Grandma because you may take her flu. It's the same thing for Rona virus, and so we need to make sure we're washing up our little ones as much as possible. We're keeping them out of public as much as possible, but we're certainly not bringing them around older people or people who have chronic medical conditions, because they spread the corona virus to them and caused them to die. By the way we have one more minute left. was Dr Adams. I know you came into this week with the headline that this could be our darkest week yet.

It was about six to eight weeks. When they saw their curve, hit their peak and come back down so about a month or two months Italy didn't do that and we're seeing that their cases. There's still going up, so we have a choice. We Wanna be like Italy and have this thing. Spiral out of control or do. We want to be like South Korea. And China and I'm confident that people are doing the right thing you see in New York City. City the yesterday said their case. They're starting to level off. Hopefully. We continue to see that trend, but we know these measures work, and it's really going to depend not on the federal government, not on me, your doctor you, but on every single person in the community including all of your listeners, saying hey, I'm going to do the right thing. At least for the next couple of weeks I'm to stay at home and.

You'll hear other people in your neighborhood and. If you're in royalty and you're at. The Palace. Thing is. She actually recorded it and played it back, so that was her doing. This is the sound. Let me play this to my phone. This is the sound coming from the UK.

I'm really on top of it so I know. Our Web Guru is at home listening right Allie. Can you come up with a graphic I can put up on instagram. That reminds people that tonight. We WanNa clap for our carers. In. That's what we need to do. Something an old man losing it. Hello I. Lost it. Yeah. I lost it yesterday and the grocery store. I went yesterday to a market and I had on my mask, and my gloves, and I was walking around, and everyone else was dressed the same way, and I just lost it I started crying and I couldn't believe that this was the state that we were in and I. Know that things will get better and I know that it's just we have to do for now, but it didn't make it any easier at that moment. No, and I just I just I just lost it I was by myself in the store. You know that my family wasn't with me and when I got home I kind of just like okay I. Things are going to get better. And at least everyone was doing what they needed to do. Everyone was wearing their gloves. They were wearing their masks. They were social distancing. They were six feet away from each other on the line, paying and everything, and they were still being courteous. They were still saying. Hey, how you doing hope. You have a good day like people weren't being nasty to each other. You know what I mean so that means. It's like you're. You're walking around on the set of a movie. Because this is the stuff we see in movies. We don't see this in your in your breaking grocery stores Oh by the way. I'm not crying. You're crying. I'm not crying you're crying. I. We still have our caller on hold. Is Christine Still on hold? We're GONNA. Go to her and just a second. WHAT'S UP Ghandi? So. I've been reading a lot about this because I've been feeling really weird feelings that I don't normally feel and a lot of what I've read is that this is all of us dealing with grief, and you might not understand that it's grief, but we are all losing things whether it's time with your family or your ability to go outside. It's happening and this is. is how we're all coping with grief, so keep that in mind. It's going to go up and down just like it does when you cope with the loss of any sort and people might not be processing it as grief, but that's what we're going. We're all doing it together so I. Don't think you're crazy at all when you just cry I, think we're all doing. I don't find that crazy at all I'd find it. I think not crying is the crazy one. In by the way we just heard the people from the UK out there beating the hell out of their cowbells, someone to send a text there on Amazon right now, ordering cowbells all know original cowbell. Delivered early. That's an essential. Essential I want everyone. This is going to be are funny. Thing we're. Let's let's buy out every frigging cowbell on. Amazon right now. Oh my Gosh, Alabel?

Yeah I don't know it's getting really stressful. Right, what is your? By the way, even though there's an explanation for it probably South Dakota I. Believe is still checking in as the state with the fewest cases of Corona virus. Now that could be because it is the state with the fewest cases, or it could be because not as many people have been tested, so they're not on record. Would you have an opinion on that? Or what do you think Christine It's very hard to get a test. You have to be considered high priority. They turn a lot of people away so honestly I. Don't think the numbers are correct for people that are affected. Right. Hey. What about you? Though? How are you feeling going into work everyday? Knowing that you're actually you're. You're walking into the fire while the rest of us are running away from it essentially. How does how does that play with your emotions?

Let's get into the three things we need to know. Know Gandhi. What's going on? Hello all right? The UK Prime Boris Johnson has tested positive for covid nineteen. He says he developed mild symptoms. Now he self isolating, but he will continue to lead the government's response. Be a video conference, and sadly the US is now the hardest hit country in the world with cases topping eighty, five thousand. The global count has passed half a million and expert or Half a million and experts are still saying right now the best thing that we can do. Do is social distance. Social distancing is the Q. is the social distancing cues are the key to flattening this curve, so we need to stay away from each other as much as we possibly can. And we talked about this earlier. We got a lot of response about it. We all know that mental health and wellness is a big thing right now. During this time staying home ill in a little bit differently, so our governor Andrew Cuomo announced the creation of new free mental health hotline some. Some experts are also worried that not only are you just gonna get sad, but that addiction could actually increase people stay home and stress out so this hotline is live active. It staffed by about sixty seven hundred mental health professionals all volunteering and it is available to anybody who needs it. The numbers, eight, four, four, eight, six, three, nine, three, one four, and we have posted that on all of our social media platforms. If you need it, instagram, twitter facebook Elvis Duran shows where it is. Mental, health. I'm sorry. My God you have three. I counted out. I counted three. I misheard in other news story in my head. Go ahead. Sorry! I'm kind of rolled into one so I understand how that could have been confusing might not make much of a difference right now, because a lot of people are not traveling but American. Airlines says that they are getting rid of that dreaded middle seat because they want people to stay as far apart on planes as they possibly can, so they're going to block off the middle seats to create that space, so if you are flying and you're using American Airlines. There will be no middle seat for you and those are your three things. There you go. Thank you gone and speaking of mental health. Thank you for bringing that story up again.

I he has big plans for the compound. He has a urine garden. It is a place where yeah human waste into plant food so they're actually doing good staff for the environment.

GonNa look into. This is the power. Plants around. A frog is long would leave me green point. On my guy! Be. By the way. Megan markle and Prince. Harry had eleven point three instagram followers guess what now they now they have less than Prince William and Kate Middleton they have eleven point four. Maybe it's because they've just you know they're disappearing and they're not going to be royal anymore so now they're getting less instagram. Followers I don't know by the way you You know that Meghan markle already has her first job, right? She's going to be voicing. Documentary called elephants for Disney, so she has her first job, not being royal, and if you're interested in nets, keeping up with tiger king, there will be a live action mini series in the works Kate Mckinnon. We'll be playing your carol. Baskin hail you'll. Off scenic. Talking about. and John Finley who was one of the husbands on Tiger King, the guy with the no teeth no-shirt. Yes, you know who I'm talking about. He did have teeth at the end, but they never showed it. He said he had his teeth fixed, but they never showed it. Also the producers were the ones that said to him listen. It will be much better if you did the interviews without your shirt on. Why he didn't sure that was a good look. Yeah by the way you see his photo with his teeth. He looks nothing like the Guy Without two teeth. Another thing is it's a perfect for net flicks. NETFLIX's viewership is up like one hundred million percent. Is the premier show so therefore that show is the king of the season. We still have two or three minutes left here, so give me one more story. They want to go to the three things. You need to know all right. So what else do I have for you Let's talk about Krissy. Teague and she doesn't really care what you think about. About the food that she's posing because a lot of celebrities doing cooking shows right now to pass the time on their instagram along with other things, she posted this picture of tuna casserole with Jalapeno chips and Cheddar cheese, and some people were exactly, but you say Yuck, but somebody said gross on her Internet feed, and she said good thing it's not for you. Know, you know what? I hate when I post. Food or talk about food and people got so nasty. You know what? That is just feel like. I feel like an. and. Justin, Timberlake and Jessica Biel. They have tied. They've retreated to the mountains. That's what they are with their kids for their social distancing there in the mountains, so don't go looking for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. Okay I'll start my search. Let's get into the three things you need to know condie what's going on right now? Well we just talked about this about the UK prime. Minister Boris Johnson did test positive for Covid nineteen? He says he has mild symptoms like a runny nose and coughing. He's going to isolate, but continued to run. The government lead the response. Be a video conference, and now the US is the hardest hit country in the world. We have cases topping eighty, five thousand. The best way that we can combat this is to stay. Home stands out as much. Much as you can keep your distance from people, social distancing is really going to help us flatten this curve. We talked about ESPN, having really not as much to do anymore. Now that all sports have been postponed canceled delayed. Whatever you WANNA, call it so now starting Friday. They'RE GONNA start. Having Disney movies on ESPN, and of course that doesn't mean necessarily Moana or beauty, and the beast, but things like the mighty ducks. Airbud invincible all the good. Good sports movies that Disney put out and we have hit this a couple of times. I think we're going to keep doing it if you're having any issues if you're feeling lonely anxious. Do you think you just need to talk to a mental health professional? Because a lot of people are going through that right now? Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the creation of a new free mental health hotline. The number is eight, four, four, eight, six, three, nine three. Three one four. We posted that on all the Elvis Duran. Show platforms instagram twitter facebook. It is alive. It's ready to go its staff by sixty seven hundred mental health professionals all volunteers, and it's available to anybody who might need it again. It's posted at all of our social is the Elvis Duran show on instagram on twitter and on facebook. If you need it, call the number and those are your three things. Thank you.

Let me let me read you a few quotes from Governor Murphy. We win wars when we don't panic, but when we get smart, aggressive and proactive, we win. We don't turn on each other, but when we come together and we win when we show courage. We're doing that we will continue to do that. We will win this war as we have won so many before. With that, said Governor, in even though a lot of people listening aren't in the State of New Jersey. What you have to say applies to everyone. Where do you WANNA start? What's your headline today? First of all thank you for having me on on on for more used to be Jenkinson's or someplace fun So. A little bit of a different battle mode that I. Normally end with you guy so I hope those days come sooner the later. Listen I would just you've said it incredibly you quoted me which I'm honored by, but that that's the name of the game, and in this particular war the most important thing folks could do is to stay at home. Just stay at home. Stay away from each other even at home. Only go out when you have to do the basic stuff. Wash your hands with soap and water. Don't touch your face coughing your sleeve. Literally the only way we can break the back of this virus in so-called flatten that curve to allow our healthcare system to be able to deal with it is for us to to stay at home and stay in the so-called social distancing is our one most important weapon we've got. You, know something you may not know. What by the way he was talking about Jenkinson's. We were there with the governor Lizzo. At at the shore of this past summer in. How things have changed since then, and of course you, you're recovering from kidney surgery a few weeks ago, and you're still leading as the governor of the State of New Jersey now. Do people ever look you in the eye governor? Murphy and say Hey, thank you for all you're doing. But how are you doing? I mean. How are you personally? If you WANNA get really personal, feel free how you personally handling for your for yourself. You're great to ask and you guys get the Gold Star because your producer was going out of his way to ask me the same thing and I'm doing fine. A I did have surgery just over three weeks ago. I caught cancer early. Thank God I'm one of I think someone said fifty three thousand people in. New Jersey would hear the word. You have cancer this year. I got an early and I had planned on a gradual resumption of work over a period of weeks so much for that plan that. That went out the window a mall corona all the time right now, but you're great to ask. I'm holding up well, but this is the fight of our lives. I don't WanNa. Understate is just as passionate as I am and just as convinced as I am. About the fact, we're GONNA win. It I'm just as convinced that I wanNA make sure people understand this about the gravity of this. This is a huge. This is the fight of our lives, and we're only GonNa win this if we all do our our part. Governor, when you were elected governor of New Jersey. I'm sure the coronavirus was not even in the top one million things on your list of things. You thought you'd have to get done. But, but you're doing it but I have to wonder though if you have some insight because I follow, you and I really trust what you have to say. Do you have some insight into how to personally through adversity? Handle it for yourself, therefore being able to be strong to handle it for others like what gets you the day when you turn off the governor light for a few minutes. Yeah, I mean your first point is. The is the really the big one for me. There's no playbook you don't go to the shelf and say hey. Let's pull down the coronavirus playbook and see what we did last time the last time we dealt with this Everybody's everybody's dead. No one's alive. No one can remember Listen you have to. You have to pace yourself right, so you've got to be able to. Step back you gotTA. Make sure you get a good night's sleep as best you can I've got a family of four kids. You know we. We try to have dinner a little bit distance from each other around the table more than normal each night. you know we're. We're typically working around the clock, but we gotta take a break, and you gotta make sure again rest. Eat well the basic stuff and I think that goes for everybody. This is tough on folks. Psyche as well you know when social distance you tend to get off by yourself a lot, and that's not who we are as a society, certainly is who we are as a state inside. That's another thing I'd say all this is that everybody may feel it. It's during this that they may be off by themselves. In fact overwhelmingly. We're all in this together. We're all living through this together and that you give comfortable to folks. Governor Phil Murphy from a from the beautiful state of New Jersey where most of us are sitting right now in the sun is out. It looks like it's GonNa be Gorgeous Day. I must I must assume that. When you find your purpose in life in years of course is being serving the public. When you find your purpose in life, it really makes you more effective at that job and ineffective at being a great father and a great citizen, so are encouraging words to our listeners, and you're an example is find your purpose. Stick to it doubled down on the things that make you great at what you do and you you will rise above it all any other thoughts you want to share with us. I mean like. Do you want to yellow for being stupid about some things we're doing? You wanted to congratulate anyone. I, just made I just made myself a massive of. A massive Ham Sandwich from Hamdan at Kings, the Kings Grocery. In are you eating more than usual, or are you gaining weight? Or what are you doing? What's? I, hope I'm not although that that's probably because I just had surgery, but more than by eating habits, but I don't WanNa yell at anybody a couple of weeks ago I will say this anybody who takes advantage of this. There's a special place in hell for that person. So you know the couple of people in our state, the past week of coughed on people, and said hey you the corona virus right now. We will deal with those knuckleheads. Anybody throws a party. You know the there's some stories from Kentucky somebody who's throwing a crone of Party we're. We're GONNA. Break Your party up so so we're. We've got a zero gatherings threshold right now. The good news is couple of weeks ago. I would have been more concerned about that. the compliance of the the extraordinary nine million members of our new. New Jersey family has been overwhelmingly really good but just even the basic day to day stuff. If you're in the supermarket, get in and get out. Stay away from folks. mind your PS and QS is my parents would say wash your hands with soap If you're at the pharmacy, same thing, don't go out just literally. Don't go out unless you have to go out. It's that simple. Stay home. Right Governor Murphy Murphy. Thank you so much for your time. Oh, by the way, why are you on the air with a bunch of knuckleheads? Like as you call us when you could be out there, governing the State of New Jersey? We should let go. I WANNA. Say I WANNA say something to you guys to Elvis and Danielle gun to you. You all are a source of great strength and comfort to folks. The fact that folks can wake up in the morning and hear your voices and hear your spirit is a big deal. I WANNA make sure I. Say that to you. You all are doing far more than your part and thank you for that. I can't wait till we can get together and I'll make you a ham sandwich. It'll be fabulous. I love that so thank you, Governor Phil Murphy have a Beautiful Day in and take care of your family. Take care of yourself. We need you. Thank you so much, governor. Have a great music skiers is. The governor needs to music. That was nice. He's saying. We're GONNA come down you. If you act like a fool right now now is not the time I appreciate. Got Be drilled. We've seen a couple of businesses that are like. Selling things for more than they're worth people trying to take advantage on on their little Amazon stores, or whatever they're selling stuff and I know a lot of are cracking down on that and rightfully so. Well. Did you see that idiot like coughing all over the produce on purpose in that grocery store yesterday? Something in a store. Okay. Looking at I did not go I did not train in the world of mental health as a as a profession, nor did I study it in school, but I must assume that there there is something something wrong with someone like that and I wish they would. They would observe their own actions before they start doing things like that. Daniels description. They're just a Jack Wad. Yes. Not, see. This is why I can't therapist I I don't have I. don't have the patience or the smarts to be in the mental health profession I would look into. Your well I think my diagnosis is you're a Jack Wad? Actually Mental Mentally Healthier just your. Jaguar, Heaven, I. Write down on a piece of paper. Stop Being Jaguar you. Going on in the background here. Mike, what's going on, so the cat climbed up on the keyboard and he's playing the piano. I don't know who. Can we hear it can take your microphone over there. I would love I would live a post concert. Come on. It's not gonNA reach. It's not gonna read. But I'm like the governor's talking and he's over there playing the. Go to Murphy's pretty cool I think he would probably appreciate it. Looks like we have to take a break straight. Nate is breaking out into a sweat. It could be that or the big doughnut. He just ate I duNno. Daniel. Don't be disappointed in me but I did put a Lula mayonnaise on that Ham Sandwich. You go vomit. We'll take a break. We'll be back after this. Awesome been with the.

I'm speaking for Daniel and Gandhian in everyone i. they seem to be doing well. But what is your current headline? Like? What are you working on right now? Erica? Well. Thanks for having the governor or And you know it really mean it means a lot that what you guys are all doing and you guys are doing amazing every day in all your information and hard work, everything is just wonderful I am so happy I. Get to hear Your Voice -cause every day, and the governor was for a lot of positive emotion and you know. He needs applause just as well to who does to everyone view? I agree with you know even though he's the governor of New Jersey. What state do you live in Erica? The state with. Your back, what state do you live in? INDIANA. Lovely, lovely I'm so glad you're listening, so at your family and friends are doing well I i. hope we are we are. consider essential worker, so I have working every single day. I I'm in the medical field, but not like in the hospital doctors offices, but we I am at work at it. Orthopedic Facility and we make implants for fine neck surgery in school. Else's and all that we have facilities all over the world for my company, but each the different things that we are here to help what can well without doubt what you do. What you're doing is essential, and if ever I get a spine, if ever grow a spine I'll come to you for some spinal. Material. Erica. Erica, thank you so much. Bless you and keep doing your work. Appreciate it. Thank you all so much I appreciate y'all every morning to. All Right Erica, thank you. Hey, AL, let's go around the room. We'll start with you scary. Know you're just chomping at the bit. You've got something you WanNa tell us I can see it in your eyes. What's going on? You know a lot of us are using restaurant takeout delivery? Some of us are donating to some of the funds to keep some of these restaurants alive. But also think about the funds specifically that are earmarked just for the waiters and waitresses and bartenders thinking about that local place, maybe that one place that you go to all the time and support that local bartenders slash waiter waitress relief fund from that place, because I know there's a couple of places that I go to around Jersey. City and hoboken and those are the ones that I'm specifically giving two and a one hundred percent of those monies usually go to the work. Itself supports very true. Those funds those types of funds. And we're on. We're talking about this last night on a group chat with some friends you know when we get out of this tunnel and we're back into the new reality Let's hope and pray that even if some of our favorite servers and bartenders, a managers at our restaurants, some of them the restaurants will disappear. I hope they will emerge at other restaurants. We can go to because other members of our family. You know and support them all you. You can F- You can go in and buy gift cards, or you can do. Take out or whatever you can do safely. Please do and speaking of safety When deliver things to your house. Do not approach them. If anyone's delivering a package or food, let them set it down and walk away. Do not get near them because they're delivering to a lot of different people and everyone and walked up to them. We're we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA kill him. We need them. We need our deliveries. We need them to be safe, so please and also someone suggested if you're going to leave a cash tip which I'm thinking, this is the ultimate the ultimate in laundering money. You've put it in the washing machine. You know these tips today. L. Ozark tonight. Watch it, but if you're handing it tips, someone suggested putting it in an envelope I. Don't know if that's going to make it any better, but. Around the room to you Gandhi. What's going on? So I just wanted. Thank all of our listeners because they have been so supportive through all of this. We're all at home. It feels weird. We have some technical issues, but getting all the messages that we've been getting about how we're keeping people going and how they're still listening and they're so rocking with us. It's actually really lifting my spirits as well so I understand why when we shout out one profession, everybody else's like Hey, stew! It feels good. Our listeners are amazing and I love you guys, words the thank you. I can't write back to everybody but I really really appreciate it. It's so nice. I was going to. Go into a few I just I wish I could answer. Everyone I just there's. Make a ham sandwich. I'm so busy I'm sorry. Danial. What's up Danielle. Crazy. Mine is the same thing I don't get to go through. My DM's as much as I'd like. But I was going through some last night, and the amount of love, and the amount of appreciation that the listeners not only are sending out to the show, but to what everybody has been doing out. There is just incredible and we. We always say that we have the greatest listeners, but we really really do. We are so so lucky and It's times like this that even though it's a horrible situation, it just shows us how lucky we are to have the people listening to us that we do. Thank, you. And you people wonder like Oh my God! You guys go in there and just you know you do this every day and you know. The Hours or whatever. Hey, what we do is, we are so blessed to have this to do. This is an honor to do this. And like I said before I mean if if we didn't have the ability to broadcast or talk to you, give you audio every day I I would suffocate. I would know what to do with my life I. would really I would I talk about the need to have purpose purpose in fulfilling your purpose? It's you gotTA double down like I, said before on the things that make you great and the things. Things that make you happy. Those are the things you have to focus on right now and being positive. It's hard to do, but you know what I think. We're doing pretty good job and everyone listening. Thank you so much. Thank God you're listening. Don't forget tonight at eight o'clock you need to step outside no matter where you are. If you're with people in in your your hunkered down with some family and friends. On for the long term, or you're by yourself, walk outside at eight o'clock your time tonight and start applauding for our carers. The people in the healthcare industry they will hear you. They will feel it and make sure you recorded and you Hashtag Hashtag clap for our carers see a R. E. R.. S I want to see a lot of those I want to see him all from our listening areas because. This is the least we can do. Go out at eight o'clock tonight, banks and parts and make some noise. Let's get into the three things you need to know Gandhi what's going on? Well the US is now leading and something. We probably don't want to be leading in. And that is the most positive cases of covid nineteen. We are officially the hardest hit with over eighty five thousand cases. The global account has passed a million South Africa. Is Now in lockdown? The British Prime Minister has tested positive as you have heard a million times by now our only real weapon. Weapon against this is to stay inside and keep social distancing ourselves as much as we possibly can to flatten that. Curve Space Force is officially in orbit now. The newest branch of the military conducted its first national security space launched Thursday from Cape Canaveral and now we have a military communications satellite, doing its little job up there in orbit, and finally we've been talking about mental health and. And wellness it is very very important. If you're feeling any type of way if you're a little more depressed than usual, if you just want somebody to talk to governor Cuomo announced a new free mental health hotline, and we have posted the number everywhere. It is on instagram facebook twitter Elvis Rancho. The hotline is live. It is staffed by mental health professionals over sixty seven, hundred who are. are volunteering their time just in case you need something from them. The number is eight, four, four, eight, six, three, nine, three, one four, and again we have posted that on all of our social media platforms, so if you need it, feel free to reach out. That's why they're there and a lot of people need it right now. No judgment we get it. Those are your three things. Thank you so much. Gandhi appreciate it. If you're a trucker, you know we love you. Honk your horn for us these originally. When you're right in the back seat of the car, you'd you'd like. Pump your fist up and down in the end the semi behind you would honk the horn. You never did that, I don't know maybe the people people in the highway thing, thank you. You're our heroes, also everyone keeping our air circulating in our hospitals and police stations, fire stations, everyone in the HVAC business, and all you engineers who know how to keep that stuff working.

045 Bell Witch

"Welcome to goes ghostly. Is The bells family farm haunted goes Liza podcast that comes out every other week in each episode we take a go story or paranormal events and look into its complete history. Rebecca then gives us evidence proving that the story is real. And my job is to debate those pieces of evidence and get you. The listener prepared to vote on if it's real or not, if you haven't yet, please hit that subscribe button as always. We're your host I'm pat and I'm Rebecca, so we are finally back in ghostly studio. Yeah, like in person in person each other. It feels weird. Steer you own oh. JEEZ You know I have to say in that regard. Everything is great, but I I would like to say that. I hope everybody safe and I hope everybody has been able to take time to reflect on all these things that are going on right now, and hopefully these end up being a good times for our country where we can look back and say that was the time when we changed. Yeah, absolutely, it's. It's been a a tough fume months definitely been a tough a few weeks definitely. But like you said I really. Feel like. Great Change only comes from. A lot of. DISCHORD unfortunately. I mean when people are just kind of like me about stuff. Then nothing really happens, so we'll see but it's it's been tough, but I'm glad that we're able to safely. Be Together your record. This I hope everyone is still keeping safe out there and you keep your distance like six feet away. At least let's do like ten feet away. Yeah, that may be better. but nobody tuned into goes lead to hear our opinions on what's going on right now, so the first thing that I'd like to do is do a shout out. So there are two ways to guarantee your comments. Get read ghostly. One way is to give us a review on Apple podcast which we do have one of those, too, but the other way is to buy us a coffee on by me. COFFEE DOT com slash grossly podcast. There's also a link to it on our website. F course goes. They podcast CASTA. Absolutely, so this one is from a new supporter on by MIA. Coffee Christine, age, she says thanks for making my daily commute downtown. Go by quicker I. Love Your podcast and have listened to all your episodes more than once. I'm hoping you'll discuss. Saint James at Sag Bridge soon. As well as the crown point jail, which isn't far from my house. So that's. That's great Yes, Saint James I. Have a lot of history was saying James and I can't wait to one day. Talk About Crown Point Jail! Yeah so you think that would be things. We'd want to do down the road. Sure I mean we've talked. We've talked about these topics a little. Yeah. I'm crown point jail really just kind of brushed upon it a little. Yeah. They've come up in other episodes, so I think they might warrant. More absolutely, and we will do some research and see if we can get that out to you. So also. we did get a new review on apple podcast. This review was not our most positive, but we decided to read it online. anyways and I'm going to ask you to read it. Don't mind can do that. Now. This is still a three star review. I mean you know. Now we do ask I mean if you're gonNA. Have something negative to say if you can throw us five stars, we. Still read it. WHO's this by? PB and J.. Sandwich I love the name I mean. Name, so the title of this review is seemed Ted Petty. This isn't the first time I've reviewed this show I didn't actually go back and look at what the previous review said, but. There well, this takes it takes the place of US I couldn't do that anyways. Okay, this is the first time I've reviewed the show. The last time it was higher, but listening to the live show pat seemed like he felt ganged up on, so he resorted to childish pettiness with the constant Frankfurt. firt junk. I like saying that. Junk and even earlier, basically, giving a backhanded compliment to the man that helped helped you. Put the Fart joke. No okay. If he doesn't like being corrected. Use Google to learn how to pronounce things you're unsure of. I don't know. Maybe he was having a bad day. It was just disappointing to hear yet another paranormal. Parentheses. Skeptics. Don't search out. Go story stills into unless is under fiction, or they want to be smarter than silly. Goebel folks who believe in ghosts. And Fantasies. podcast group trash other people trying to do the same thing. All right, so you know I. I value PB and J. Sandwiches point of view and. I JUST WANNA. Say a couple of things I I believe that this review is from our live show with US law which a lot of fun on the show. Let's see there was Sula Bob and Nick Mata Ragas. And while I will say that I do my best, not to make believers feel belittled. That is never ever my goal. If I ever come across that way that is never how I feel in fact outside of ghostly when someone tells me a ghost story I listen, and I get excited to hear it I love. Go Stories. I just. I just as much respect for believers as I do skeptics, just just so you know, and as far as the other part about joking around on Nick Bob and myself we're we're. We're all friends. And sometimes we rebound each other and I understand that this can seem a little petty sometimes and I. I will definitely take that under advisement for future shows because you all don't need to hear as goof on each other like that. I mean. I like it, but I understand if it gets too much, it gets a little. Yeah, but I mean especially you a nick I, and we. We've been. We've been friends a long while, and we've done a lot of Improv comedy together and You know nick is my brother. I love him but. I, will I will definitely throw jabs at him. So I will correct your pronunciation. He will and I really don't that. That really is kind of like a joke that I have and and I probably shouldn't take bad out anyone else. I think PB and J. Sandwich actually was watching on Youtube, live. so PB and J. Sandwich. I'm sorry that you had to give us a lesser review, but just know that I value your opinion, and in no way. Am I arguing your points? You have some valid points there to bring up fact part. That's that's new catchphrase. Is Bert Vert. Vert I'm micro-climate. Part. I Don't remember you ever doing a Fart joke, but it's like that I don't condone my behavior. Though so fart jokes are bad. Okay, so we got all that out of the way. So do you have any listener now? I do do now. This is going to be a little weird, so we actually did. Call for our society where we ritual of virtual call. facebook now has like these rooms that you can do. Yes, so we'll see. Maybe we'll do another one sometime, but it was. It was pretty fun we just wanted to see was anyway, so while on their one of our listeners actually shared her she her mom was there actually and she shared a story. That's been going on in their household. So this is my transcription of what she said, so Cathy Listener Kathy. I apologize at whatever I miss or didn't didn't write down correctly. but I think I got the gist of it anyways, and it's. Just going to say, she was very disappointed in me that I didn't believe in very disappointed, because this is a terrifying story. Okay. So, this is from loser Kathy and again. This is me kind of like writing as her sort of sort of okay. So the started back last summer, so in their house somebody has in the basement has built a wall. That wasn't originally in the house. Wasn't them, but it's there. Okay, so the first thing that happened She said the first time something happened to her son. He was sleeping He felt air than no air from the air conditioner. TURNED OFF OR I. At my notes little unclear. but then. Laying in bed, he felt pressure on both shoulders. He saw a black shadow in the room with him. He jumped up, turned the light on, and it was gone now we'll say she made it very clear. At the very beginning that he was awake for all of these things her daughter after this happen got sage after talking to spiritual person. I thought you meant she got wise I know. Yeah, that's how can you could read it that way? not actual sage. They're supposed to burn Spiritual, persons had something was bothered in the house. says. It's really creepy. They saw that there were holes in the wall that had been built that had been added, so she put sage in all of the holes, and everything stopped. As you do right as you do never I find a hole in my house I. Put sage in Okay so this. This call took place a couple of weeks ago. Right so then. She said last week, so you not long ago. My son was in his bedroom, falling asleep, heard his brothers and me his mom talking outside his room, he was turned on his side, facing the wall. His face was pushed into the pillow, and he felt a hand on his face, smothering him. He wanted to call out, but couldn't. And then he used all his weight to push the entity off of himself, and he threw himself onto the floor. And he came running out of the room and asked us you know it. Didn't you hear me to hear what was going on, and they hadn't. This is where it gets creepy. This is where it's. This is where it gets really creepy, okay? They went to the wall and one of the sage pieces had fallen out. Of the House. So like nothing happened anyways. Okay, so HP. Another incident that had happened that happened recently she described, was herk Kathy and her dog. They were sitting watching TV, and she heard like little pitcher patter of feet. And Cute, it does except that it's a really old house and I guess there were lots of children in there in the past because it was used, the house was used as a camp for inner city youth. Wow, so anyways, then the dog starts to follow something with his highs. He's a bulldog. He sat up suddenly starts growling era, barking frothing, totally unusual behavior, and he's looking down to the basement right so not usual behavior. He takes off running to the basement door, but then like stops and comes back. So son goes to look doesn't see anything down there. The dog just barking and growling. And is the daughter who she had run out of sage. To add downstairs but then the dog like ran down to the basement, and the sun was like. Do not go after the dog now this is my notes, and for some reason I. Know You can't. But I'm pretty sure the dog's fine. I mean we didn't hear anything about it. Happening to the dog. But I think at this point. There may be still experiencing stuff there, so we'll have to follow up. And see what's going on. Yeah. It's. More about that, it's kind of like sleep paralysis, but different I, don't know is super creeping. It's exactly like sleep well, except for the fact that he was able to like, get up and turn on the light and stuff eventually you are. As critical! Well, thank you. Ends Mom Kathy for giving us that story If you have anything to add, please let us know. Yes, please. People and that's the message. Yeah, so. This is my least favorite part of the show. Look, I don't feel ganged up on. Even even if there's ten believers in a room and I'm the only skeptic I'm entitled to my view, you're entitled to years whatever. But this is like against me. This is a personal thing, right? What is just oh? Oh, you, except for the fact that you one like the last even last one I don't think you did know. Okay Anyway. But anyway, that's okay. okay, this one though is do goats. Ghost pets exudes. Posing. That also falls under this. Yeah, I believe. I would say yes to ghost pets exists and Yeah.

So in this episode we'll be talking about the bell which story which when we announced that we were GonNa do this, so many people were excited about it. Yeah, I've been. This is been on my list I think since we started the show. Yeah, well. It's a very popular paranormal story for those that don't know. Some would actually say that. This is the most popular ghost story. The bellwood story is so popular that it was visited by a president. Yes, there's actually a president in the so we are talking about Andrew Jackson. He said I had rather faced the entire British army than to spend another night with the bell witch. After he and some of his troops on, because he was a general at the time, so they spent the night at Bell's farm. This is yet another thing that I. Disagree with our seventh president about. I yeah me and him have a good track record. No, no, he's yeah. So do you have go story do now? This is a quick one because I think there's so much. There's so much of the ghost story really in in the history, even but I wanted to give a little taste. Okay, okay. Papa just came in and told the wildest story today. He said he saw huge hound. So big get almost couldn't be real, he said. He said he tried to shoot at it, but it didn't hit anything. And then just disappeared. Today. I was outside and I saw a strange thing. was swinging on the old oak tree. But when I went to see who it was, she was gone. I'm sorry I haven't been writing to you diary, but we've just had such trouble sleeping the last few nights. I keep hearing a voice, but I don't know what they're saying. Last Night Papa said his bed close were tore off the bed while he was sleeping. Mama was quiet, but I can see she's troubled. I'm frightened. Every night now I am attacked. Papa calls it a witch. She pulls my hair and hits me. I wake up with scratch marks on me. Oh. I hear is howling and dogs growling outside. Our neighbor Mr Johnston says it is a demon. The pulling and scratching. Keep happening. I don't know how to make it. Stop Her Mama so scared the which keeps leaving her presence of fruit and sings to her. We don't know what it wants. I'm not sure when this will end. I pray every night that the which leaves our leaves are family alone. But. She says she was here first and we'll never leave. I guess we'll need to learn to live with this tear. While, that's that was a really good story and it kind of summed up a lot of stuff that was happening during that two so. We have a very long history cafe. So maybe we should go ahead and take our first break right now. Yeah, and when we come back, we will talk about the history towns got. So here, we ghostly, we have a new sponsor, sinister coffee and creamery. Yes, sinister coughing creamery is a shop in Portland owned by an amazing couple, Kelly and Michelle who are also super into the paranormal and do their own investigations in addition to make making amazing coffee.

And that will be in our show notes too well, so order some today and enjoy a little ghost with your coffee. All right we're back. This is be Kinda Long. I apologized to you guys. Usually we try to split up things where it's more fifty fifty. I think I'M GONNA. Do a Lotta talking this episodes. You just sit back and relax I, mean honestly it's almost like the history and the ghost story are the same. Yeah, because in order to really talk about this. Yeah, you pretty much have to tell the ghost store. Yes. I'm excited to hear you tell go straight. but just a note about something before I begin. I struggle with the term which being used, which is a term that the settlers considered to be anything that baffled. Them. So this is one hundred twenty five years after the Salem witch trials. And for some reason that term stock, and is still used even today just not as often now well, it's always a derogatory term for women. You know anytime. There's a woman that you're that they you know especially in the actions. They always not now but like. Back, then you know what I mean. It was a way of If you had a problem with a woman or they were trying to do things they were trying to get. Too much power, whatever absolutely, but there is a misunderstanding of what a witch is because during those times it was only used to describe women as you just said but there could be males that are which is, and they aren't always these dark beings that possess supernatural powers. Some might say well, aren't they? Warlocks than warlock is actually from what I understand means a betrayer of of friends, or of community. So at one time I considered myself a witch. As I was pagan and I studied wicca amongst other pagan religions. But I will keep it in this history because it's how it's no Gotcha. So John. Bell was born in edgecomb county north. Carolina John. Bell was a barrel maker. and. I've never met a barrel maker in my whole entire life. Have you ever met one? No other than Mario I don't think he was a barrel maker. A Plumber, oh. That's true he's. Over barrels in Donkey Kong. Cheese you're going way back there. John Bell was married to. Lucy Williams and they got married in seventeen, eighty, two and lucy came from a fairly wealthy family that were mostly farmers so John. Bell became a farmer then. They actually did very well for themselves as farmers. Until eighteen o one in between eighteen, a one in eighteen afford their crop started to fail and of their friends moved West. So the bellwood story pretty much begins with John Bell and moving his family from North Carolina to the Red River Bottomland in Robertson County Tennessee. Red River is now known as atoms. belot purchased some land that had a rather large house on its property. Now. If you saw pictures of the house in today's standards, you would not say it's a big house, but in those days it was a pretty big house. not an easy trip for them. As they set out in the winter of eighteen o four or eighteen o five things are a little sketchy with that. And they had to cross over mount over the mountains of North, Carolina and East Tennessee. which being in Tennessee seeing these mountains they it's huge and it would take forever. I couldn't even imagine how you would walk from there or even horseback. Before moving to Red River, they had already had six children. They had Jesse Benjamin. Dreary. John Bell Junior Esther Bell and Zach. Benjamin either died during childbirth or within the first year of life. After moving to Red River. They had three more children. So they had Elizabeth which is known as Betsy. They'd Richard and they had Joel. Now something that I? You know I feel like we should mention just because again. Can't turn away from our history. Right is that they did have slaves. They did have slaves. Yes I don't mention that in the history, although one of the slaves did have an experience right? Yes, there is I didn't mention that. The sources that I went to. They since this is the history part, and not necessarily the ghost story, even though in this one, it's Kinda intertwined It doesn't really talk about that much right. It's really it's all very very murky but anyways. I just wanted to mention it again. Just 'cause 'cause when you do reading on this, you know. Definitely there. Yeah, I mean they had well they at least head, one slave. I don't know how many slaves that's true. Good Point. Yeah, so rebecca and I have not been to. The Bell Bellecave and Tennessee, but we did visit a place called cades cove. which is in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It's like thirty miles from pigeon forge. Other thirty miles over there. It takes you like four hours to drive. It's. Because the mountain. So give us an idea of what the bells family cabin would look like and showed us how life was in the early eighteen hundreds in Tennessee yeah. I, so if we think of what a modern family home looks like nowadays, there's a kitchen. There's a living room bedrooms, sometimes a laundry room, right? while in the eighteen hundreds and Tennessee this was all usually the same room. I mean they might have sectioned off bedroom or two mostly for the adults of the family. That's how you can. Have you know eight kids? but for the most part the family all stay together, and what was the kitchen and living room together? So. Of course there was no bathroom too right, right? They would use an outhouse. So a day in the life of someone in this time involved a lot of work. They were all farmers somewhat hunt while the others would tend to the crops into do all the domestic work which meant cooking everything from scratch I mean there was no mix. They couldn't just you know. Break out a pancake mix and do that. They had to mix all ingredients together. Make all the bread. Do all the stuff and with children. It meant a lot of home schooling. They're lucky. There'd be a schoolhouse in a church, but getting to any other structure usually meant walking for miles upon miles on small trails. Very different. For sure. But maybe the homeschooling right now, right? Yeah! People are feeling that we could relate to that yeah. So once they got settled in, things were actually looking great for the bell family. They became successful farmers and gained some prominence in the new community John. Bell actually became an elder at the Red River Baptist Church. Now. Like that doesn't mean much to us, nowadays 'cause churches something. Maybe you do on Sundays maybe do two nights a week. Church played in much more major role in the daily lives of these early settlers. People from the community would spend most of their evenings at Church. Also churches were frequently called upon to settle personal issues such as disputes between neighbors. Life on the frontier. Right I mean again, this is. Why a Hun-. Hundred Years. Ago Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, not one hundred one hundred day. No sorry. So long yeah. Everything started changing for the bell family though in eighteen seventeen. John Bell was out in his Cornfield and he noticed a rather strange animal Rebecca alluded to this. It had the body of a dog, but the head of a rabbit. I don't know if you knew that I. didn't I know that part? That's crazy? Yeah, this shock, John, as would anyone right if I saw a you know a rap dog. They're not rabid dog. A Rab Dog, a rab dog. Yeah. I would be shocked. John managed to finish his day of chores. And when he sat down for dinner with his family that night, the family started to hear some kind of. Beating sound on the walls outside their cabin. This this continued from evening to evening. Sometimes they would run outside to find whatever it was, but they didn't see anything. In the next few weeks, children were having trouble sleeping. They said that rats were gnawing at their. And then the children complained of their covers, being pulled from them and their pillows falling to the floor. This went on for a little while. And, then they started to hear very faint, very faint voice. Almost like a whisper. And they they said it was like older women. It was not loud enough to understand. but it sounded like women singing hymns. It got worse and worse. And Betsy, the youngest daughter began experiencing some brutal encounters with some invisible entity. It would pull her hair and slap her. It often left welts and handprints on her face and body. At first John Bell told his family to keep this a secret. I mean understandably she think obviously no one's GonNa believe you people are GonNa. Think you're not yeah. But as things kept escalating, he decided to share the story with his bff and neighbor James Johnston. Just think seriously like you better. Be Friends with your neighbors back, then man. Oh, yeah, you better get low. I mean they all. They all helped each other out right I, mean you? You need it yet. I mean even today that still the case, but like back then so you can only imagine how much more necessary when I lived in Indiana. I hated my neighbor. Things Hard Oh no I to leave the house. And if you're listening now, you can stop. I'm just. So Jane James Johnston and his wife spent the night in their cabin and witness the same things. James covered were pulled from him and he felt like he was being slapped. He jumped out of bed and yelled in the name of the Lord. Who are you and what do you want? But nothing responded. In the nights following, the voices got louder. The hymns were louder. And this was no longer just mumbling. The voices seemed to be intelligent and once seemed to quote forward to sermons. That, were that were preached at the same time on the same day, but thirteen miles apart. Yeah Right. As word got out to the Red River. Baptist Church members they decided to excommunicate. John, Bell Oh now January of eighteen, so that's a neighbor lay anymore. see this could have been related to the bewitch, or may have been because of a shady business deal that John was involved in. Some believe this is the start of the bewitch story. So, this shady business deal went all the way to the courtrooms so during this time John. Bell would have to travel the court as well. So this kind of excommunication was not uncommon for churches back then, and if time had allowed, he would probably have been reinstated at some point. Okay, they were really holding a grudge. Though you know for years, okay, but at some point they probably would have. A lot of people have incorrectly stated that this is how the bell which started. That John Bells. Chevy business deal or dispute was with Kate Bats. This was actually with Kate Bats. brother-in-law Benjamin Bats. Game? That's brother in Law Benjamin Bats. Kate Bath, brother-in-law's better that. Good job. This is where a lot of people called on the bell which entity. Kate. And in fact, in a lot of stories They say that this entity identified herself as kate well. I will not do this because it does doesn't appear to have anything to do with her at all. But if you like, you could substitute and entity with Kate as I'm saying it. It would be fine. You'll allow it I will allow you to make believe that okay. So word of this spread quickly, and even made its way to Nashville where the then Major General Andrew Jackson. Not, now, my favorite president say that. Well, he heard about it and became very interested. Now John Bell, junior jury, Bell, and Jessie. Belle had fought under General Jackson in the battle of New Orleans in eighteen. Nineteen Andrew. Jackson decided to visit the bell farm. But Jackson men had trouble getting their. Jackson's troops and horses wouldn't go there. They just stopped. Wow when they got close and of course being Andrew Jackson, he cursed out the horses. Jackson proclaimed by the eternal boy. That must be the bell witch. Sounds like something he would say yes. Then? They heard a female voice and it told Jackson that they could proceed and that she would see them again later that evening. Lousy you later. Resident Jackson wasn't president. General Miss General Jack Major General Major General. When Jackson made it to the farm, he had a long talk with bell. About the native Americans and other major topics of the day don't really WanNa, know. WanNa know either. He yeah his views on native Americans. I don't agree with at all set yeah! so one of Jackson's men's claim to be a witch Tamer. As there had to be. Days right so he seemed to have been upset with waiting so long for this entity to come back. And he took out his pistol and showed everyone a silver bullet. And he said that the silver bullet would kill any evil spirit that it came in contact with he claimed that the bellwether hasn't come out yet because it was too scared of his bullet hole, how? Well right after he said that. These things. He will. He started screaming and began jerking his body. In different directions well in he yelled that he was being struck by pins and felt as if he was beaten severely or K.. oops, that silver bullet didn't really help him. Then the entity spoke it announced that there was yet another fraud in Jackson's party. And that he would be identified in tormented the following evening. So, there's men begged him to leave. But Jackson wanted to stay like I wanNA. Know this office. They all dude yeah. So, we don't know what exactly happened, but early in the next morning, Jackson and his men were in Springfield on their way to Nashville. So, they didn't stay too long. No, no, they did not feel. Betsy the youngest daughter became interested in Joshua Gardner. A young man that lived close to them. They decided they were going to get married. In. Everyone seemed to be okay with this ball. While the entity wasn't. She wasn't okay with it. Any told betsy not to marry Joshua well. There was actually someone else that didn't like the idea to. Betsy in Joshua's former schoolteacher, a man by the name of Richard Powell didn't like it one bit. Probably because he wanted to be with Betsy Devos, it is yeah. And supposedly. He had some occult knowledge although this was never proven, but it's part of their story. And I'm also nobody in the Red River. area was aware of this but Richard. Powell was already married to women in Nashville. Name Esther Scott. Great Yeah sounds a great guy right. So Betsy and Joshua had trouble finding a spot to be alone because the entity was constantly taunting them. This isn't annoying entity, right? They ended up breaking off their engagement, but the entity was very upset and expressed dislike for John Bell vowed to relentlessly kill him. Man, so you're trying to make the happy. You can't. Betsy did go off and Mary Richard Powell her schoolteacher that was already married Nice. That's great. Yeah, right now I will say I. Did read a like a frequently asked questions thing asking someone asked if it was true that bells could not mary gardeners like people with the team. Gardner that was that was like cursed or something and the guy the researcher was like. that. There was actually a couple that was supposed to get another. Like Future Generation Bell was supposed to marry a gardener didn't happen. Another one did marry a gardner, and they had issues, and then another one got married, and he didn't know that there was anything bad about it, so if you are a bell or guard. Don't don't seek out what's going on. John Bell had experience had been experiencing some paralysis in twitching in his face. The ironic thing is that it sounds like he got a neurological condition called Bell's Palsy. It does sound like that Yeah, on this condition was not named because of him. Though although a lot of people think it was didn't even think about that I. Think made the connection. Adults adultery John Bell Bell's Palsy. I'm there. Although a lot of people think it was named after. It was discovered by a man named Charles Bell, the head child named John Bell, not the same John Bell to make things even crazier. Spoiler alert. They both died in eighteen twenty. That both both John Bells. Yeah. So, it seemed the entity, either predicted his death, or caused his death, because on the morning of December Twentieth Eighteen Twenty John Bell took his last breath. After slipping into a coma the night before the birthday, it is your birthday. Yeah I was born two hundred years ago. and. It'll be two hundred years this year for his for his. Yes, yes. upon his death, the family found a vial of unidentified liquid in the cupboard. John. Bell Junior gave some to the family cat and hold your ears Rebecca. It died instantly. Told you to hold your ears. So the entity said I gave all jack a big dose of that last night, which fixed him rule. Yeah, right John. Junior threw it into the fireplace where burst into a bright bluish greenish flame. In and shot up the chimney. Wow, yeah! Now a listener name Whitney? Messaged me and told me that she believes this substance could have been boric acid. which has been around for very long time before the bewitched story. It used to be used as a remedy in the past, but now just used to kill roaches fell. Okay looking over her evidence. It seems highly likely as it checked all the boxes. Liquid, or could be dissolved in liquid poisonous to both cats and humans has been known to cause. A Coma was available in those times would turn the flames, green or blue. Wow, if it's mixed with alcohol nothing to do with like. Do you think someone had been poisoning him? And that's because his face to do the stuff or the there were two separate things and bell's Palsy and he was poisoned, or maybe he did it himself. Maybe he took this as a cure for his both. Thought, but it is believed that he was poisoned. I've never heard of a ghost poisoning anyone though no, that seems. Yeah, but I am definitely going to have somebody taste my food before. I've made a lot of ghosts upset with There you go. John Bowes funeral was one of the biggest of Robertson County. The entity showed up again in laughed in sing. A song about a bottle of Brandy showed up at the funeral. So roots. The entity visited Lucy in April of eighteen, twenty one, but wasn't seen from the time John died until this time. Because it's work was done. Get Killed John Bell and stop the marriage between a bell and a gardener. The there you go. So yeah. So you know, the entity told Lucy that it would return in seven years. And it did as promised. When the entity returned, it spoke mostly to John Bell Junior now John Junior interesting. Had A better relationship with the entity at this point. Before John, Bell Junior actually was like the most out spoken against the entity okay. But I guess it came back to talk to John Bell Junior why I'd be a little nervous after having my dad right so it, so it talked about the origin of life of civilization of Christianity and the need for spiritual reawakening. But it also predicted almost exactly the civil war and other events. right. So the entity left after about three weeks and promised to visit the bell family descendants in a hundred and seven years. Talk about random right yeah right. which would have been? Dr Charles Bailey Bell. In nineteen, thirty five, he had written a book about the Bell Witch, and it was published in nineteen thirty four. But no follow up was published, and he died in nineteen forty five, so either he didn't get visited, or he didn't just didn't WanNa. Talk about it again. Yeah, whatever? Now. To be fair. I've said what people believed to be the story I have to. I have to be honest about the story. So are you saying that some of the things that you said? You might have some more things to say about. Yes, definitely okay, so most of what we know of the folklore story of the bellwether was given to us in a book from eighteen ninety four. Named authenticated history of the Bell witch by. Martin van Buren Ingram. That's a name that isn't Ena. He wasn't even alive during the stories as he was born in eighteen, thirty two, he was a newspaper editor, and the accounts of these events happen seventy five years after the event itself. Okay so it includes a letter dated July first eighteen ninety one. To explain. Why now was the time that this public chateau? It was from former Tennessee state representative. James Allen Bell. James Allen is the grandson of John Bell and the son of Richard William Bell. Little Richard. the letter stated that the family didn't want any information to be released. Until after the immediate family members of John Bell Senior had died. Okay, and a lot of Ingram's book was believed to be from a manuscript written by Richard William Bell. Who was six to ten years old during the original encounter and seventeen when the entity returned in eighteen, twenty eight. Okay, so rebecca I copied a poem from the book. Would you mind reading that for us? Is called Queen of Haunted del. I will do best good luck. Thank you. All Right Queen of the haunted del. Mid Woodland bowers Grassy del by an enchanted murmuring stream. Dwelt Pretty blue-eyed Betsy Bell. Sweetly thrilled with love's young dream. Life was like the magic spell that guides and laughing stream. SUNBEAM's glimmering on her foul kissed by Lunar Silvery Gleam. But ELFIN FANTOMAS cursed the Dell and Sylvan witches, all unseen, as our tail will truly tell wielded sceptre or the queen. So. Yeah, that is from. That from Ingram's book, authenticated history of the bellwether, which would came out in eighteen ninety four base. So going back to that. It was written by Richard Bell Richard William Bell. No one has ever seen the original manuscript. And there is no evidence that it ever existed. There is speculation that betsy actually made up the entire story. And in fact, this was written in a newspaper article dated before the book came out in eighteen, forty nine. And since there was no firsthand accounts for Ingram to talk to some, if not all those events may have been completely made up in fact, betsy sued the newspaper for posting that. Okay, so let me get this, so betsy sued the newspaper for Printing. The saying that she made up saying that she made up the story I Gotcha I gotcha got okay interesting, even the accounts of Andrew Jackson being at the farm may have been completely made up. As there is documented history of all of his movements that time and it never plays anywhere near. farms so there's kind of like through that in there. Yes. Maybe, I don't know. It happened so long ago I've no idea but also to so Andrew Jackson went for President I believe in eighteen, twenty four. And during the debates now these debates were like really brutal, and in fact, it was a very brutal debate. It isn't like debates nowadays Oh. Maybe it is on. But they like slammed each other. They would use everything that they could. His opponent will have used that. He was scared of a of a witch. Use that against him in never did. Never any documentation of that. So the bell family home is long gone. But there was a cave on the property, this cave is said to how some of the artifacts from the family. And also there is a story linked to it where betsy and a couple of friends explored it. One boy got stuck, and the entity said I'll get him out after freeing the boy, the entity scolded the children for recklessly exploring the cave. You can go there. Though as tours are offered at the cave now and also they did a replica house Ab- RAPA Kevin, cabin! Yes, you can also tour. Yeah, yes. So that's what I have for the history. Is there anything you'd like to add to that well, not necessarily. I mean this is maybe we'll get into this a little bit with some of the debate things but. Just in general, I think the history is difficult to towns like you know what I mean like the source material for this history is very shaky. In, you know so to really know for sure. What happened? I think is hard. Anything that happened two hundred years ago. If it's not like a president or something, there's nobody there to really take down these stories and their past word word of mouth, right and I mean these stories have been passed around a lot I mean obviously everywhere, but especially in that that area of the country for a long time, and we know what happens in the game of telephone. Everyone's played. Absolutely. You know so. It's hard to know. What stories are you real or based in truth versus just made up for something to be interesting? Yeah, so I mean I know this sounds like I'm on the Tash team skeptic side. We're not actually debating the Bell witch you've got. We're not kind of where you come in and Here's the thing to If you want to further research this, you're gonNA, have to hunt around for it. but Bob of Bob. After dark did a great episode on Wj OB. For it which I think you could find on his facebook. Page after Dr can you can just go to Bob after dark dot com and he redirects over there, so you can, and then search for for about which yeah so?

Exactly Order Your merch today and send us a pick of you in your ghostly gear. All Right Rebecca you ready for this debate. Let's do this okay. I'm sure you have some great evidence I do so. Let's explain what we're debating. Really because I think again. It's a little different this episode because of the nature of things so. The question that we're debating is is the bells family property for harm hunted so I thought you know as we talked about. Before the break, it's difficult to. Really, know for sure what's true and what's not? From two hundred years ago, absolute right so I thought instead. I'm going to look for evidence of people today that visit the cave. And the land that are experiencing paranormal activity. And we debate that so you know I have no evidence or idea if Whatever may have happened to the bell? Family is the same as what's happening to the people today. Sure, you know we can see some parallels to some things, but other things. No, so I'm not necessarily claiming or not claiming. That it's the same well. How would you rate the the Bell Witch Story I? Think that's a good a good way to. To start things you know to me I. Mean again after kind of looking at what I've looked at. You know I, give it like a like a six. Okay, so you're still pretty high up there. Though well for me, that's actually. I mean in that I mean it's A. It's an ancient. Native American or indigenous peoples burial ground, and we didn't even talk about. We didn't even talks about. Lately but The entity sent them on a wild goose chase trying to find like she said that it was on a native American burial ground, and sent them to try to find some treasure that they never found. But there there is evidence of like A grave that will in the gave that was somebody took the bones and never return them. Let's be honest. There's a lot of native American burial grounds that we don't know about. Yeah Well Again A. A lot of paranormal activity out there. You know so so again I don't know that I. I'm so glad I'm not necessarily claiming that the entity or the things that are happening today or exactly the same as what happened in the past, but I think that there's been stuff happening on that property. Yeah, again I. Don't necessarily know that I believe that the in fact I, I would give a one BIEB even zero to the idea that this entity killed or poisoned. John Bell Yeah I you know so for me. I'm going to have to go with the zero. Because for me, all of the things that seems to have happened. All the people were already dead. When you know, the story was fully released, some of the information came out beforehand. There were some people that they talked to. That were alive during that time, but it's not first hand accounts. And I, think a lot of the stuff could be explained as murder. Almost you know I believe that John Bell might have been poisoned by a family member or one of the slaves. I mean there's there's definitely some. There's a Sakic out there. That claims that it was one of the slaves in revenge for. Betsy being abused and there's a movie that kind of explore some of that. There's a lot of movies that touch upon this like the Blair. Witch sure is kind of in reference to this kind that there's no evidence of any of that, but that would explain why she had bruises and cuts season, and it may be made up this elaborate story to then cover everything up totally possible now I will also say though I. Mean I think you know we've heard this sometimes and other stories and we absolutely will in the future girls. At that thirteen. Fourteen young adult age. can generate a lot energy and draw a lot of things to them, so you know. Again, there's just so much there, but I I doubt a lot of it. Okay, yeah, that's fair that part, but these are some interesting stories that I have found that recent the more presentation exactly. People taking the tours that kind of stuff. I can't wait to hear what you have to say. Okay, yeah, awesome I, so first evidence. Is. Voices in the cave. Okay, so I've read many accounts of people who claim to hear voices when they are in the bellwethers cave. One of them was ghost adventures. Okay everyone's favorite. TV show. In their episode, they heard a voice say, and they have a recording of these Listen to me and here I come. There's also an amateur paranormal investigator that I read her account, and she said she heard children's laughter in the cave. Okay so what I'm going to say about that. Is I'M GONNA. Take this in a couple of different directions. Here the voices in the cave part just in general. It's a cave. There's echoes I don't know how big the cave is in itself but there's GonNa be echoes in the cave, and also it could pick up things from around the area and echo those and make them louder so even if you didn't hear the initial one, the echo could actually be louder in the cave than what it originally was. My other thing is about ghost adventures I. Know You're going to. Talk about that later. Right so maybe I should wait on. I think there might be some more goes into stuff, but that's the big one I think for them. okay yeah. Yeah so have you ever noticed? and. Maybe this is all just a big coincidence, but have you ever noticed and every ghost adventure? They always get evidence. Always some of it is like. Just spectacular evidence. How many episodes would you say that there are of Ghost adventure I? Don't know it's a lot. They've been in a long time. They've been on a really long time and. Never do they failed to bring us the evidence? What I'm thinking though is that? Would we continue watching this show if there wasn't if they're like this is something spooky, but nothing happened to us there. No and Nick was on ghost adventure as see. We've brought that up a couple of times, and he actually kind of said that they might be faking some of the stuff now. He said he saw a few things, but he you know he wasn't there when they were filming a lot of the stuff, so he said that he saw people get into shadow people costumes. To Make Shadow, people in the gay see episode. So, I guess that could still be though for like promos and stuff like I. Don't remember the gates episode them ever claiming to see shadow people they did. They did towards the end I've watched it a couple times. Anyway because my good friend, nick was on it. Who I will never say a bad word about again and go sleep part. All right, so it's interesting. Right? Okay, but again they weren't the only ones to hear voices. That would just be what I would say, but I also said that it could be echoes Oh. Yes, yes, okay. I think I explained that pretty well. Would you like to rate your rate? This evidence Oh yeah, yeah, zero zero. I'M GONNA. Give it a six again. Not Super High with that because I think you're right with a cave. You there could be like one person says something at one end. You didn't see them. Say It, but maybe it travels so it's possible, okay. Evidence number two, so there's been a lot of TV shows that have investigated this site. Well, it's a super popular goes it is it is so on the show cursed on and. they had a lot of weird emf readings, as it goes through adventures and the amateur investigator that I mentioned and then I just doesn't there. They also had a lot of growling in the cave, so weird maths and growling will again the growling could be because of the echoes in the cave that it could have been something from a distance that. The, cave, just kind of echoed sound of something could be like. We were in Bachelors Grove in those trees. That sounded very weird. It could be something like that. It could be explained by nature but the M. F. readings. Now. You guys might not know this. But I don't believe in those things I. Don't believe in EMF's or Or spirit boxes, or all those things because they could be manipulated, and also to here is the very interesting thing, if if we're using a piece of mechanical equipment even if it's Q. Seed, we cannot replicate that all the time if you gotta reading from one spot at one time, you're not gonNA. necessarily. Get that reading again now. We could say that the entity moved makes perfect sense, but. When we're talking about some piece of equipment like this, it should be able to be replicated. We should have some way of being able to prove that it works, and there's no evidence that proves that these things work now see for me. I would feel the opposite or I would feel I do feel like if every time you go to a space, the EMF reader goes off exactly the same. That to me is like okay well. Actually there are some. You, know energy or whatever you know some sort of source, right? That's always here verses, if it's an entity than it wouldn't always be in the same place, so the fact that the reader doesn't always go off every time I will also say I think I I didn't make this clear without to the amateur investigator. Lia Math was in the. The replicated cabin. And the others were I think in still I've i. feel the same thing and you know here's something that's rare for this day and age. I believe INSCI-. Yeah I know right I believe in science, and as so if if I were going to say. That Something causes something to happen. I would have to be able to replicate that. I would have to build a duplicate that and show that every time that this happened in order to prove that. That actually works and. There's no way to do this with an m F. so therefore it. It seems like a very scientific thing. Right because you're using some kind of device. But. It's not based in any science at all. Well I. think There's people that would argue that, but I please. We'll no, I, would just I mean it is? It is reading energy. I mean you can use that. To I. Mean We know that sometimes? When there is magnetic energy that can cause people to hallucinate, or you know what I mean. That's something that a real paranormal investigator is going to always look for if there's a natural source like a you know sort of as you can find of sure things going on. But, if you look and you can't find any of those sources than you have to ask yourself what is generating, but there's. All over the place all the time. Yeah, but not always in one spot, but it doesn't always set off the. This is interesting. Yeah, like even even if I held it up to you, it's not going to necessarily generated every single time. So why would do it with a ghost? So, why would it be? Come in different form of they. Your ceiling energy from the world in order to take to show up at energies in you, though right not necessarily or i. have this other things blocking that energy? Bob's not here to explain all this science you are. What would you say is your reading? This is gonNA. Be a tough one I going to say zero. An think I gave plenty of evidences to why. I'm and I'm going to say I'M GONNA. Say Zero. No I'm going to say a sex again. Again six is your way of saying zero. It saying that I do think that it's weird, but I'm not totally convinced by. It will okay, so five is like It's fifty fifty could be real. It could be not so. You're saying that it's greater than. Just. It's greater than just by chance. Yeah, because I think there's too many people that have had this happen and there's something going on. There's a okay this is power point. There's a Ley line. There's something going on in this place. Let's not talk about power points at. All right, Evidence summer three all right I'm ready. Okay, this is another show. Okay, called haunted live. Woo Live all the time. I don't know I've never watched it other than on Youtube. Though it was interesting, because basically they were having a ton of problems with their equipment so everything that they taped, but lost so they re reporting on what they saw. So I mean, there's a bunch of things and you meant you said I should list them all off. And then you've got to reassure okay so supposedly they had like those cameras that are like the heat. Seeking heats cameras or whatever. and. They saw a creature that was a shape shifter started a spider, and it morphed into a more of a human form. Okay, they heard screaming. That was a leaky. Screaming in the woods. Around them. They also heard coughing coming from the woods. Okay, maybe maybe cove Ed there. I know this is before Cova. Oh and then They had cameras like mountain in the space that we're like totally secure, and the were like moved. They get shaken or something and they're like nothing could have just done that. There was nobody there. and it wasn't like the room was shaking or something and then the one that I got punched in the back of his leg and he could still feel it still bothering him. Wow well, so they talked about all this, they didn't show any. No, they're not show any it. So the heat signature thing showing as like creatures and stuff. That's our interpretation of heat. And what it looks like, it doesn't mean that it that it was a spider that became a person. It means that that's what they imagined that it looked like and we are great as we all know here. We are great at picking out shapes that we identify. So I believe that okay. Maybe there was energy, but that could be explained by a lot, or maybe there was heat, but that could be explained by a lot of different things. I wasn't there I. Don't know I can't even watch the evidence. All I could do is listen to them. Tell me about it. Yes, and Therefore I am going to say. I think that's B S. Sorry haunted live. You're more than welcome to come on the show and prove me wrong, and so these things so I will say again. They you know it's hard because you couldn't see it yourself but it was I. don't know. They were believable sounding but. You know again. It's a TV show and without me seeing it. And we'll say was a little harder. However, a lot of the things that they talk about are things that have also happened. In other. Like all I, know I just picked a few examples of this and for everything that I say there are other multiple examples of people telling similar story. Sure so you know there certainly Other people that claim similar things. So was this in the cave itself. yeah I believe there was stuff in a cave, and then also on the property okay. Like the the screaming lady and Coughing Lady? Those can be attributed to different animals or like as I said again, the bachelor's grove trees were creaking. And it sounded like doors opening up. Almost I mean it sounded like if you go back to that episode's otherworldly and listen to that. Yeah, it was really really creepy, but. All of our listeners have not all of some of our listeners have actually written in to tell us that that's just creaking woods, and that's what it sounds like sometimes and sometimes I could see that it would sound like a lady screaming. It could be an animal could be a bird. It could be some kind of mammal and the coughing you know. Maybe. There's some smokers over there I don't know. Punched in the back of his. Was the weirdest thing I know. All right, so, what would you rank this evidence? Let's go. I I'm going to give it a zero, but I really hunted live. If you are listening, please contact us. I Really WanNa Talk I have some questions about this I. Don't WanNa just. pooh-pooh idea or Your idea. Well I will say in some ways. They seem much more legitimate than the advent. Mister Baggins I mean I don't know though I again. There is actual evidence with that one so No, so this one. I'm actually going to do a five. WHOA. Yeah, because again. It's like they seem believable, but I didn't actually seen a six six five. Yes, I know. This is a weird one all right, but wait till the end, but we've got one more before the end. Okay is this is number four? So these last two are from a website. It's felt witch story dot com slash encounters, so these are stories that people submitted that they've had encounters with the which okay. So this is from the website itself. I'm reading. This is Rick White, the writer and director of the movie The bell witch haunting he wrote. A few years ago, while conducting research for script that would later become the bell witch haunting I was walking near the ocean of the cave on the bell property with a fellow writer, we were walking right beside each other with no one else around. Everything was quiet when suddenly we heard a woman angrily whisper over our shoulders, writer ears. Why are you doing year? We, both quickly turned. No one was there. A. While okay I, you know. I know people get upset with me when I say stuff like this, but he's a writer. Director of a movie called the Bell Witch Hunting. If, he didn't have some kind of paranormal. Experience there, it would seem weird if he was just like you know, but when I went there, nothing happened. He's GonNa have some kind of. You know paranormal experience whether it's made up or whether it's exaggerated to suit the needs. I. I. I don't know what to say. I don't really have a rebuttal because I wasn't there. I didn't hear it. but I just find. It highly suspect because of the nature of who these people are. Now I WANNA, Watch the bill which huntings I wanna I hope you know that this is a fictional movie. Though right, I believe so. But I think based on the story I you know I would still like to see it I I prefer documentaries about these kind of things but. Without seeing it, I have no idea. I mean it's funny like I want to think the way that you do as far as it being You know just something that he made up but I. I don't know there were a lot of. The fact that he was with someone else that he was working on a script. That wasn't even necessarily. It became the bell, which ma-maybe became the bell witch after this experience that he had where they're gonNA make like back to the future for Sunday. Sunday. And then he changed his mind, so it seems a bit creepy and very I don't know more voices well since I cannot. Validate what they're saying I'M GONNA? I'M GONNA. Give it a two why it's yeah. I'M GONNA give it to. Dan, I, really don't believe it happened. But I really can't say much against it because I wasn't there, so I have to give it something, oh. It's the highest I've been a long time that is, it's been a long time. Yeah, I mean I'm going to give it a seven so yeah. Yep again there's something about it. So. We gotTA last one here. Okay, okay, so this is again from that same experiences website a woman with the initials L. E. writes about visiting the cave with her daughter. WHO's fourteen? Her son, who has four daughters friend? She felt it was creepy. From the time they arrived after they made it to the back of the cave with the tour, they lingered behind while the tour went ahead and she took a photo of her daughter and her friend. Here's what she describes then happens all of a sudden, some kind of super strength power just picked me up off my feet as I was snapping the picture and threw me down on the rock floor like I was raggedy Ann. I was totally days for what seemed like a few minutes, and I heard a voice telling me to. Get Out of here. All the people around me were asking like Oh my. Are you okay? Some help me up. As I stood I was like what just happened. Others were asking what happened. What made you fall? I was like I. Don't know, but I was just standing there and there was no explanation for what happened. We went on with the tour. And hayride, but I had a weird feeling for the rest. Rest of the night, and even for a while. She then says when she got her photos devote the next day so I'm guessing. This was a little while ago. that this happen she saw a strange image to the right of the frame. It looks like with this has been the photo she took. It looks. She says like a transparent ghost of a woman in White. She doesn't say that, but I'll let us. ooh, okay so. I'M GONNA. Go with what the people around her. Were feeling with this one you know. They felt like she fell down. I believe she did I believe. She fell down in couldn't explain it. Their Times I. Fall Down I fall down a lot actually explains a lot about me I. Think. But Yeah. I mean it's an embarrassing thing And I believe that to write it off as some. Some entity because you're in a strange area I. mean this happened in the case of the Cave Yep. Yeah, well I'm imagining that it's kind of slippery rock. So, that's how I imagine it. It's. It's still rock. You know it's very easy to fall and Yeah I I believe. That's what happened in the picture that she took with the ghost of a woman. Cameras can do this kind of stuff all the time. I wonder if this was digital photography. If this was thirty five millimeter, both have their own reasons for this kind of thing happening. Yeah I just. To me, it's a woman fell down got a weird picture, but pictures don't really tell you the exact story. This was a really creepy one. This was the creepiest one for me I'm sorry. Yeah, no, because to me like again, you know if something pushed you, something grabbed you and lifted you up and like push you down lake. Who deals her get picked up, but they were ahead. Remember so that they were so like the tour was move. It was leaving and they stayed behind. Take a picture, so they like heard probably yelling and then came back, so it wasn't like they just knew she fell. They didn't necessarily see her fall and then the creepy picture the next day I. Mean this is just a woman putting this on a website like and she used her initials. It's not like she's trying for Fortunate Heyman Glory. Mean like for me. I find it more believable because. Okay. So. What would be your rating for the submarine? For? This was an eight eight. Okay I'll give it a one. Okay Seems odd that she would feel that way, but you know what I could understand that since I've fallen so many times. That sometimes it feels like you know. Man There's nothing I could do. You know I just. Yeah I, one time fell with the stuffed pizza. My hand in dislocated my pinky. Very anxious for that pizza. Pizza didn't make. My pinky still messed up so. anyways, yeah, I'll give it a one all right so then pat after all of this evidence. Yes, all of all of it. What would you say is your overall rating for the Bell? Family property being hunted. I'm going to go with A. One! Oh Wow. That's pretty high. That is pretty high for you. That's. Interesting. Would you say Rebecca after all the off? You know I'm GONNA say. This is really hard. I'm GONNA say like a like a safe heaven. Going six. Six and a half I was going to go six half. Maybe okay, I'll find. I'll go with a six and a half. No I'm going to go seven. I'M GONNA. Go Seven I. Go with what you. Want. That's what I'm. GonNa say all right well. That brings us to our closing arguments. This is our last chance to convince you to vote our way. We're each given one minute of uninterrupted time we will time each other on our cell phones to keep each other honest and Rebecca. Are you ready I? Am Ready. Aright and Go, all right so I do believe that the bell family property is haunted you know. The psychic that I spoke of earlier talked about how it wasn't necessarily the bell family that was haunted. It's the property that they just happened to be one of the ones that disturbed it, and therefore had some things happen to them which we don't even know exactly what that was. I! You know the fact that there is so much still happening today and the fact that you know these investigators do feel things they do find things that so many stories are similar a lot of people here these same voices. A lot of people feel like they're ben pushed We're touched in some way. that there's a lot of stories of of emf readers going off or Again the same investigation different people at different times to me. Just. It, there's a lot that says that there is something going on that property i. don't know exactly what I don't necessarily think. It's just a witch. All. That's your time. I was my time. You went over by like a smidge. Yeah, I did. And even extra I'm okay. I'm good all right. Are you ready? Okay and go. So if we look at the Bellwood Story. As a whole, we have serious doubts about its history. That transcends to everything that. You know we're trying to make it seem as if that doesn't mean anything to these modern day stories, but it does. If there was no bell witch. then. What's haunting this area? What's there what happened? If you have doubt about the actual bellwood story, it's hard to believe any of these other stories even happened. This is notorious. This is a famous spot for being one of the most popular ghost stories. Anything that happens. There is going to be magnified, and people are going to blow it out of proportion and blame it on this. Bell witch. I don't think it happened. Twice Nice leave good timing. Thanks, thanks, that was good I ended like a second or two early just because you. Just to prove I could. So I. WanNa. Thank everyone so much for listening. Please share with your friends and family as word of mouth is our best advertisement. I'm really excited about our next episode. It is going to be about one of our well one of my favorite city to. Dublin, yeah, this is Lynn Ireland's any type of episode that were we're going to be doing. Which is about a city? We're going to explore all the ghost stories well. We may not get to all go stories, but I'm going to explore them. Just might not talk about it. But we're GONNA.

It's like like Brando Stanley coonskin. Yeah, you don't want just any any hip. He's played the part before. Yeah, I was right. Yeah, it was in a movie where I did a small parts Hitler. But I weigh the hell. Yeah. And in, in highway, the hell it was funny are in the credits. And it was in the movie this time, it was funny. This time you to use the maybe a poor word murdered. It was such a. Really? And Gilbert, Canada hersal. He got there before the before the camera people. He was so excited. First thing the lighting's guy in the customer, they put the armband in the Ma Sean Gilbert, to make sure everything fit for the and that was it Gilbert, didn't take it off until he left on the airplane. Did he make a beeline to craft services? We've Hitler Hitler. He's. It was wonderful. He really got into character. And, and I think if Hitler saw it, I think he'd probably be really proud. Bruno gones are the are the definitive Hitler's and, and. Yeah, it was the row stuff and Frank. How did you feel when you were looking like Hitler? What did it make you feel like I finally in my element? As a Jewish person. Did you have any sort of mixed feelings about doing the role none, none, none? That's the way I prayed Mel Brooks used to talk about revenge through ridicule. This is how the Jews take on the Nazis. We mock them O N. He did a lot of it. It did a lot of it. Yeah. I'm I'm proud of the work. We did. I think it came out, great. Yeah. I did too. I think you should win. And a German, EMMY. Let's give a nod to John Lovett says as FDR. Yes, sir. Wonderful and Fred Willard, planet, drillers, Feinstein, of course, played and Frank and I played myself as Jewish comic during the Nazi occupation. Yes, you're wearing one of those old suits with the star of David on it. Right. And it made me it made me. It gave me a certain seriousness. I didn't I wasn't silly about it. I didn't have to, you know, it made me feel like comedies important. And when we say is important as comedians I didn't want to, I didn't wanna be cavalier about wearing that Jewish star of David I wanted it to mean something and I'm not even a religious person. But, you know, this is this is our world Gilbert, this is our, our arena. We don't make films we make jerk growth. And, and there's no very few documentaries or movies about Anne, Frank anywhere. I couldn't find any even as to show. My writers for research is the diary of aunt only diarrhea van Frank. Yeah. And, and as a resource so eh it gave me great pride to see my, my writers, who were young. My, my Vietnamese writer taking home, a copy of the diarrhea van Franken coming back the next day with. Ideas and jazzed about it, and completely all in on her story. So we talk about the holocaust say, never forget, how can we, we to know about it? The younger generation has to know about it for us to really for the story to go on for the cautionary tale. And one of your riders thank me a bunch of times during the show, but playing Hitler on him. And the reason was that his grandmother was camp survivor. Right. As the he thought this was so important, right? Like to make a fool out of Hitler. Right. And that she survived, and, you know, Hitler's being left at his that's Eddie Firth, who's one of the originators of the historical roast, and he his grandmother, Molly, I believe aim is wrote a book and she survived an and he his family. Very proud of the work proud, proud that he his show took on this thing. And, and I think it's if you can say who, why would you roast and Frank? Well, how could you not? Yeah, what do I get a row someone something, I don't care about this is perhaps, one of the people I care about the most in the world are book, change the way, I think about humanity and, and have writer kept thanking me throughout the whole production. Yes, it was so important for him. Yeah. Also, I want to mention the, the Lincoln roast with our friend. Bob sag it. Yeah. And stay most as John Wilkes booth really fun. And who was the comic who was playing Harriet Tubman? She was great yarmulke Saunders. Larry. He's one of our writers, a dear friend of mine really funny, Yemeni really attack that Harriet Tubman. He was great. I hung out with her on Memorial Day. She took me in a bunch of us on a on a excursion to the to the Staten Island ferry. She likes to ride the ferry on national holidays. It's free. It's fun. It's patriotic to go past the statue of liberty, so Yama nica, definitely. Let us around Staten Island, the Hudson river the way, Harriet, Tubman, led those people out of slavery. Great job, everybody, and one thing, I'm proud of. And I think you are too. You're already getting in trouble for these roles. I might have seen something about that online. Well, I mean, anytime you take on things that are sacred, you know, if it doesn't offend somebody somewhere, it's not funny. It's probably not funny. So you, you know you have to it's I feel it's my responsibility. If you're comfortable watching a roast of and Frank or Martin Luther King junior, which we do follow that, discomfort. Maybe you'll learn something about yourself. Maybe you'll learn something about other people. What's wrong with being uncomfortable? What was carlin's line that you like to talk about Gilbert, George Carlin said, it's the duty of a comedian to find out where the line is drawn and deliberately crossover, it right comics without borders. Yeah. I like that. What is your t-shirt say right now when you're wearing a tee shirt, I'm offended by people who are always offended? Perfect. Website. Everyone's offended in the internet age because everybody has a bully pulpit. Now we talk about it and the old days you had to write a letter people are trying to get mad. They wanna be offended because they know that they have a better punch down at you. Absolutely are waiting for you to say anything where they can have the one in the chamber set to go the fire back. It also gives them access to the conversation to what's going on. Right. And if you don't answer these, these idea, by the way, people who are might be complaining that the holocaust should not be mocked. They're probably right. I agree with them. Yeah. This is not the perfect way to learn about this. But I'm the only one talking about an Frank. I'm sorry. I'm not on the evening news. Like this is my my thing, some would say these are, there are survivors out there in these things are trigger to them. So I don't know how many ninety year olds are watching our Netflix historical rose. But I mean, does that mean any talk is a trigger? We, we laugh through the pain if we don't laugh, we cry. It's been a long time since the holocaust. This is how we're going to learn. I can't expect my teenage nephews to, to go to the Anne Frank house in an Amsterdam to, to learn about the hall. Let everybody could afford that, you know, I'm talking to teenagers who are all over the country all over the world, you know, with this show. So this is a way to at least get them curious enough to Google and Frank or Martin Luther King or Muhammad Ali, or some of the other. People. We talk about, you know, we talk about Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman in this show. These are names that adults are getting confused about who's who it was strangely educational right realizes. I was watching it. So, you know, to me, there's so much fake news. We talk about fake news. That's gonna evolve in a fake history. I felt an obligation to give a people's history to every joke in the historical roadshow. They're six episodes, every joke is based. In fact, you know, it's a, a trustee narrator. And what what's funny, too is like. It. It's it is respectful. There's something like it's both extremely offensive and extremely respectful at the same time, right? Well, that's what rose are. Yeah. It's a great device to be. You know, it's like. A Pat on the back and kick in the ass. You know what I mean? Speaking laughter through pain. I we were talking before we turn the mic on about the prison special. Uh-huh. That you did which I watched with my wife, which is absolutely fascinating. Thank particularly the part where you were performing for the women. Right. The incarcerated women. Right. And how you bonded with these people. Well, this is show I did a couple years ago and. I had been trying for a long time to get access to maximum security jail or prison. And everybody said, no but there's. There's a jail in Texas. Brass's county jail, where the sheriff and the jail administrators. They have a lot of autonomy over their jails, and they saw the good in bringing in an entertainer, and I and they asked for a month notice, so that they could use it as good behavior. In other words, you had to be a in order to see my show, and when word got out in the jail, that I was doing a show for the guys, the women, obviously. They wanted the same incentive. They wanted to say they had a show and this wasn't part of the plan. I was always up for it, but there were security issues with, with how to make that work force, and to put all the women in one room at the same time is not their normal routine. So I did an off the cuff. You know, I was looking at all the solitary confinement cells, and doing sort of the documentary part of the special and the jail administrator at the time, Wayne Dickie said, the women seem to be really super jealous that you're doing a show for the guys. How do you feel about doing a show for the women in half an hour? Okay. Well, I worked months on my act for the guy pulled it off. So I went into the women's jail, and you know you can see this if you'll watch the special and I did it like a nightclub performance, it wasn't social commentary was barely a roast until I said stuff, like you know, you know, you know. If they were all upset about all wearing the same outfit. Yeah. Like some easy jokes. But there was the pregnant woman to pregnant women in the row and big mama. Joe big mama. Joe? Yeah. Yeah, they were they were really into it. So it became an easy almost like a nightclub show, and I brought women up and roasted them one at a time and, you know, some heartbreaking stories and they all had a pretty good sense of humor. And then afterwards Wayne told me that the women were buzzing for weeks afterwards because no one had talked to them as women in a long time. It was a human nizing experience. An enormous sizing experience for the ladies and the chil. So, yeah, it was cool. It was that was a cool way to bring roasting into the incarceration were all, which is something that I'm always really curious about that. They put the murderer is up front the front row security. That was a security thing where my murderers. That was your opening line. Yeah. I asked where the where the real. Dangerous people where they said, they'd be up front, Wayne said, they'd be a front because. Because it was easier to get them out. If something happened. And I said my opening joke. So we're my murder is at and three guys in the front raise their hands. And I remember one time you came over to my house. I guessed on your podcast. Right. And you brought my two. My two kids on. And while they were on with you, they were saying, you know, you're not funny, that he's hidden. And I remember your reaction was got a big smile on your face and said, you're roasting me. Yeah. Well, it's the my podcast is called thick skin. Jeff Ross, and it's about that. It's about taking a joke. You gotta have thick skin, especially me if I dish it out or I'm required to take it. I mean, otherwise, I'm a hypocrite, and I am sensitive, the way we all are. And also it digitally. Delighted me to see. Your son understand as a boy, an eight year old and nine year old ten year old, what roasting is. Hey Gilbert, you know, like this shit was corny. When I was a kid. Now it's cool. We didn't I didn't. I didn't know from that stuff as a kid. It was like it was funny to see some of the old time, comics on Johnny Carson and stuff like that. Of course, that was a big influence me obviously love that type of humor. But when I first started doing the rose they were antiquated. Yeah. They were it was like saying, I joust, or I know, Latin lost art, and, you know, through through a lot of hard work and love like roasts are more popular than they've ever been and not only that, like boys and girls will roast a bully. You know, that makes me so happy, I always thought roasting as form of self defense. You know, I studied karate kid when I was your son Max's age, I was already probably a Brown belt, and take Cuando. So I understood the power of. Being quiet. I understood that, you know, you, you can let a bully mouth off. And then a certain point you could shut it down to either with your words or with a good solid front snap. Kick was the kid. You talk about in the book the one that would hide around corners, and you're in the crotch was he was he a catalyst. Yeah. Or, you know, if you get picked on you, you either break or, you know, it's like fighter flight. Right. And you can only fly so many times, you have to fight back. If you're going to exist in an environment, and I don't know I think roasting sort of like that, I only roasts volunteers, and I only roast bullies and the ones I love, you know, if they're not going to be there. I, I rarely talk behind people's back. I like to talk people to face. While I know Gilbert awake. Listen to these words from our sponsor while you speaking.

They was they was some movie that was shown on up or night, that Ainhoa, terrible, of course and somewhere late in the movie. A guy finds a book on had a pickup women. Any reads it and becomes an expert. I was wondering if you know that that is not a team. No, no. Can't think of what it's called we used to have the poster and mister skin skull, the sorrow and the pity. To give. Gilbert, and Frank's amazing colossal obsessions. Every Thursday, only Stitcher premium. Still. Thanks. Your kids know what a roast is Gilbert by by name. I mean, you'd never obviously you in Darab, not expose them to the comedy, central roasts. Yeah. But they stay kind of they seem to just have a gut reaction like they would doing with Jeff. You understand. Now they were like insulting him. And, and Jeff was was real happy about I felt like I broke through. Yeah, it influence them. They kept in Chelsea Jeff and it was like perfect. And now and now, they'll, they'll, you know that type of humor lives on. And that makes us not forgotten. It makes us it gives us a legacy Gilbert, that type of humor, the roast humor, you know, roast battling, you know that these roast battles that I do. They they're all over the world. Now, they're in everywhere, from Russia to Asia. There in India, we have a roast battle on. Mexican television, British television. Australian television, French Canadian television, we do these rose paddles. So roasting itself is like a new pillar of comedy, the way. When improv got big. I think roasting is in a way it's unlimited. If it's presented. Well, there's in, there's a an ocean of appetite for it. They're a great ones at the at the friars that we've all attended you got. You've been on them Gilbert, spin on the ones that were never televised. The Matt Lauer one, right? Comes to mind. I mean, really great stuff that Jerry Lewis one. Yeah. Really great stuff that nobody will ever say you were at all these real. I was I was on the rightist a real wit to my career early friars club real shaft and Leopold Amerson, I were writing on some of them and, and a lot of those things I mean they're in house for the friars but other than unless you were in that room, right? At the Hilton, you'll never see those. Yeah, a lot of them were as good as the comedy central. I remember. They wrote. A whole article about the Matt Lauer, and they singled me out and said, among the horrible, you know, offensive roast these was Gilbert Godfrey saying offensive racist show an curry about her. Now. Did you? Yeah. Yeah. Asian jokes about an curse genitalia. I remember all of those, I missed, I miss those days, I do. Love those classic live afternoon, were great say regret. You remember the one that you told at the Louis joke that Lewis roast, you know, the one I mean, the one where you were told my best joke not I've ever had not to go after that particular subject. Can you share it? Of course Jerry Lewis getting roasted. He's probably, you know, eighty that point. Yeah. And I didn't know him very well. But he was obviously, you know, somebody, I admired it, big comedy star, the Jerry Lewis telethon growing up. Of course he raised millions and millions and millions of dollars when I wash my parents, as a kid, and we saw entertainers raising money doing good. It was a mitzvah, something I could understand. You know, a connection of show business. And they said, oh, you're doing a friar's club roast Jerry's excited. He's the new abbot of the friars club. This is a big thing. You know, this isn't like somebody, you're going to see once this is somebody, you're gonna have to get to know. He's the new head of the friars, and, and I really wanted to impress them obviously, but they said, you know, one caveat, not a big deal. We know you would never do this, but he's very touchy about any jokes about Kerry's kids, kids, the muscular dystrophy telethon, and, of course, I say, of course, I would never do that. No media, my head. In my head. It's all I could think about, you know, I got to how do I take it to the line? How do I how do I how do I make the hair stand up on the back of his neck, but not piss them on? How do I let them know that I'm great? And I should not be fucked with even some punk kid I wanted to make them laugh. But I also wanted to let them know I was roasting them and that it was that, that it was I was I was good at it. And, and I would hurt his respect that way and talked about it a lot like a lot of great jokes about Jerry Lewis, sort of warmed them up. I said, you know, he, he was really big and France. Then again, the French don't even know when they stink, a great one. Also the Nathan lane joke, which will MS that Nathan and he was on the day. Yeah. It and Jerry of a lot in common. They both started sucking in the seventies. Cheri lewis. Sitting there. He's flanked by Martin Scorsese and Robert deniro. Jerry's having a time of his life. It's all about him. A couple thousand people to New York Hilton, and I go on kind of late, and they say something to the effect, of, you know, Jerry Alba making funny of it. What about the great things that you do not enough as set about the great things that you do in your life? Like just last Labor Day. Six year old kid got up out of his wheelchair and walked for the first time to turn off the Jerry Lewis, tell us. Funny, as it was then. And you just saw Jerry shoulders Tensing up Milton punchline. I have a picture, we'll have to riposte it when this podcast comes out of just Jerry, just losing it and to Niro covering his face laughing. Scorsese squirming and. And, you know, Jerry, and I became friendly after that, that was also the infamous roast with the later Retha Franklin. Oh, the same. Yes same same night. She was fun. Yeah. Yeah. I said. I said, she sang the national anthem. I don't even think she signed in it. I think she's saying, America. Oh, yes. You're right. You're right. And I went up and I said, I never been to a show where the fat lady sings in the beginning. And she flipped through the bird. Yeah. I, I remember that thing, Jerry Lewis ever sent to me. Yeah. I one thing honoring Kim, whatever night, did some really offensive long joke, and he went up to me. And it looked like he was offended. I I and he said, Gilbert, you're out of your fucking mind. And then he takes opposing goes, and I wouldn't want you on the other. And I thought that's it. That's a true. God, you got him. I earned his respect them, you know earlier than that, but he didn't remember is he came to the improv comedy club and West Hollywood. And he looked at comic space, audition people to be on the telethon. He wanted to break some younger comics, and he really liked me, and I got to do the telethon a couple times in the late nineties at always wear the same tuxedo at a different shirt on each year. So. Free gig. Now what I loved about Gilbert, at those friar's roasts is how. The writers would write for everybody else, and everybody else would prepare material and Gilbert was so lazy that he would just hit up say, fuck it. I'm doing my dirty jokes. CD. Nothing to do with the Rosie heady young men with nothing to do with the that's the grace of honor. I think it's a wonderful tactic to just be able to go up, whenever you want and not have to worry about preparing. It's like, yeah, Henny Youngman used to those things and say, you know, very happy to be here at that eulogy Jess whole roast are rabbi walks into a bar. Gobert who is your favorite comedian growing up. Oh, god. There were so many there were like, and I like those old guys who are all still around insult, comics like that. Where you did. I did love Don Rickles. Yeah. And Henny augment. I loved, you meet obscure old guys to like Leonard bar guys and Leonard Cohen, Myron Cohen Meyer Cohen was terrific. Yeah. And there were so many like. You could see both the old Jackie Vernon to oh, yeah. And you could see both the old guys and white were considered the young guys who are now. And then ninety I miss, I'm I feel like I, I miss not getting this, the Jackie Vernon Jackie Leonard. Yeah. Sure. Young Don Rickles. I would've loved all those guys. Well how about some of the guys that used to kill at those friars Rosa the Hilton that people may not know about like the Capri? Oh, yeah, it was always hilarious. Always, bro. Freddie to and story. Of course, you know, I mean, that's where I saw go down. You know back then when I first got asked to do the roast she couldn't I could Google it. I had to go to the museum of broadcasting and look up, what these row swore I had no idea. So you see, once that you don't have to just make fun of the guest of honor. You can make fun of the other comics there. I was so excited because then I got the rich. With buddy Hackett, and Milton Berle and all these guys and you may Danny Aiello cry. We made identity. You don't know this story. Sure I do very familiar joy was the roast mistress on. He was she host today. Yes, it's just, you know, daddy, you. Hello who I- door. Great guy phenomenal. Actor who's a big moment at a new CBS show. The solid int L della. L della plan some sort of New York, detective and is on every bus every billboard New York, and we had a roast for them. You know, he's a fryer, and it made sense and all his friends and family were there. And I said something like, you know. Danny yellows acting as so over the top that show should be called aced. Elevage. You know, the show adjust come out, none of us had seen it. So we were just kind of joking that it was bad. But then the bells when a Richard bell from went up with the actual, New York Post, and daily news, review, rip them that, that daddy, obviously, had not read that morning, a great day. Arose was only lunchtime. Oh fuck and you know and, and bells just verbatim. Read the reviews and daddy's hearing them for the first time. Oh man. That was that was it? That was it that Danny made his speech in something hit him. He got very emotional. He says it was he was thinking about his dad, and how his dad was missing this amazing day. But I think it was the reviews I used to hide in the back of the room and scroll those jokes down on a piece of paper, even though I wasn't supposed to because I, I knew that I would not see the tape and I would forget them, right? And like we've talked about it on this show. Bells belts talking about Freddie Roman. Oh, yeah. That wonderful line. Remember it Jack ruby had a longer TV career. I used to when you were up there, and I used to scrawl a little piece of paper and I hope nobody would see me, but I said, these are going to get lost if I don't write them down. And remember them, they were that good. It's funny. I mean, I remember watching the roasts when I was a kid and those were always very homogenize and thin, you'd hear about the fee skies. These old guys like Jack Benny and stuff act, the actual friars rose. Oh, yeah. And how just foul and -fensive. They were. Right. And that was the appeal. Right. You got to see Milton Berle force say the seaward and the F word a stuff where you would never see that on Texaco star theater. The NBC rose were in part to promote NBC shows and NBC, Allen. So that's why you had red FOX lewanda page and all of these people would come in. They were they were network friendly. And it was always funny, when you baby roasting Orson Welles, and, like, Gary Coleman, which. What is the connection? Yeah. Do you ever have the jimmer have some of the old comics give you a hard time for work in blue? Yes. Yes. That happens, right? Yeah. And it's still funny, and I've talked about it here because they're up in comics who I've spoken to off stage will tell me the most foul joke in the world. And then I'll say, hey, can your Pete, some of those jokes and the lack like they, they don't know what you're talking about. Marty Allen did that to us on this show, really told us the filthiest, most wonderful jokes and then Gilbert, tried to get them to do it on Mike. And he wouldn't bite. Yeah. Here he is. He's like one hundred but he's protecting his him it. Well he was still performing. That is crazy. Let's talk about another thing you guys have been doing together or not, not too long ago. Gilbert, guested on a show on comedy central. The hilarious. Bumping mike. Mike's on Netflix. That was me. Gilbert. Bill Gilbert, introduced us David L, and I go on stage together, and we do to men. Act. I don't even know if it's an act it's, it's a show. It's a hang out. It's party. And we invite our friends and I ask Gobert to come by and next thing I know I show up at the venue Gilbert's already on stage reducing us. Nice work. If you like sizzling va giant. Funniest comedy team since I get Tina terrorist great. And then and then Gilbert stayed for the whole show, and, and it was just a treat because as much as I love Gilbert, David tells obsessed with you. It would be great, if we had asked Dave attell Tecom. Yeah. Pumping Mike Swiss show, much fun, being Vegas, June, seventh and eighth you and Dave, we're going to be at Harris. So Cal the week after that over at the Morongo casino in a couple of weeks. So this is the most fun I've ever had on stage. All roasts aside, when Davis around it's like one plus together what happened. Somebody just came as he really. I think he really is my favorite comedian. Everybody that Dave attell is here. Ladies, how did he happen to find the place? The podcast Dave sleeps under the table close to that. Mike, would you? Thanks, buddy. Wow. Great to see a parter. Yeah. I was outside. I was now it was a while before I came in here what you guys reading the mullahs report. While the nodding. And, and you're right. And I don't know. And. Yeah. Serious in here about bumping Mike's. Yes. And I was talking to before about your wonderful line about Gilbert, which was that you said, Gilbert, have you ever gone down on a on a live woman? Give your collection. Taking poetic license with that one. Gilbert, and I think Jeff will back me up on this. When Jeff together, it's good when Gilbert, was there, went to another level Gilbert, completed us, I think tanks in terms of mice could be he really did. He's the third like the triad. He's the third spoke and he really is that good. You're like what, what Joe Walsh joined the eagles, while Gilbert, the had a little more kick to a really, really a rock and roll from country and western ruck? Shit. Yeah. So anyway, we wanna make your partner Gilbert. Yes. Pay merch. Selling merch on the road everyone. It's a whole new experience for us. That's page out of his book bumping, Mike sept- pin. I'm sure Mike with your own partner, who would be. Oh, that's good. Oh, I. I, I have say, Tim Conway, when I heard about that I was like that is the set. I wonder if Gilbert ever had him on the show. Did you ever have tried? We tried. It wasn't a health. We tried. Yeah. So how about you? And Tim Conway. Keep up with me as a master. Did you walk in here, wearing bumping, Mike Smerch? Cap. So it's already out. Available. It's a it's available on Netflix. Drew Dave made thirty hats. Yeah. Gave when a Gilbert, I, I, I will say this that since we jevon. I really we're into being the fans. We know there's a lot of comedy fans that come to the show both the live performance when we taped and that, you know, at the end of the show. Now when we stand out there and we're hawking the merge. It's another experience. Because it's great to see these people. They don't only like us. They like a lot of comics, and that's really what I think, is a comedy fan like when they have like a basically, like a top ten or like you know, you know who I wish I could see and you know, I heard the podcast about Mitch Hedberg or other like guys who are no longer with us. And I was like, that's cool. You know, and I love that, that's our fan base. And it always great. When someone will say to you, you know my favorite comic. So you and I'll name like two or three others, and you go, wow. Those are great comedy category with that. Sometimes the only two they can think of. You are my favorite captor would comic would Charlie Chaplin. And. Love vote of laughter. And I wear in Atlantic City, and I was trying to get you. I was telling Darah like we gotta get you to come down to this, but you were on the road as well in Canada. I believe for Memorial Day, which is awesome. I guess I don't know why you have like a different road than we do. Or what do you do? You're on the road a lot. I go. Now, it's like they say, we'll pay here and I go just go. Yeah, 'cause I didn't know mega bus went to camp. From that dot Jeff. Did you see the documentary in it? Yes. Of course. Yeah. Well, he is getting on a mega bus. And it was like one of the saddest those. True things about comedy. He's got a way too big a bag for the amount of time he's going to be on the road, like you're gonna be two days. Maybe three days this gigantic bag, like you're like you're an oath pair. And you're moving into someone's Brownstone for the summer. Big and said. Bill Burr, says, doc, what the fuck is he doing on the bus. Don't recognize that Gilbert Godfrey your care buses. Also says, John Madden. He also says an documentary goes at this people going, gee, I use the beds Kilmer Koch words. Mice come together as a concept was at exit dental question, Jeff has it was not accidental as much as improvised, who's just an improvised fund way to get our Yaas out late at night, they would have a spot, or I would have a spot more often than not I'd go right from the airport. Land back home in New York, run by the comedy cellar, because I was hungry or lonely. I'd go watch Dave and, and they would just bring me up, and we started like sort of bumping it out. I would have a do joke to try out every once in a while David always have a new joke to try out. And next thing we knew I was begging him to come up to Montreal actually did a couple toward aids with a stop in Vegas wanted to go on the road. But Jeff, it's really like the whole, I guess, you could say the reason why I went to TV would be because Jeff because Jeff took what was just kind of fun like blow off thing that we would do. And he said, you know, this is definitely. Show. And I believe in it. So it's really everything from the branding the naming of the show to, like, bring it Netflixing all Jeff. I'm just the other guy who was there when it comes to all that stuff. Because I really do think that, like, you know, we were lucky to capture the kind of the fun of like anything can happen because really that was like, what was so good about the seller experiences that it's late people already seen about eight ax. And I always go on late for years. They're like I just go on late and it used to be because I was, you know, like kind of the worst guy there and they would throw you on at the end. Now it's more about like you know, I got a lot of errands to run. And then I need a nap, then I'm going to go down on the old guy. And moving all week. Movie years. And the and the and the best part, is that, you know, they're always cool with gliding us do whatever we want, and I think that the charm of that places that you never know who's gonna drop by, and you'll never know what's going to happen, whether it's a conversation on stage or like just working with the audience that it's kind of built for that. It's a small tiny room and Gilbert, is another good example of, like, you know, I don't know if you know this, but, like his fearlessness is really what like I love about his thing on the bumping, Mike, is that, like, you know, Jeff doesn't have a filter, you don't have a filter. So it's really great to see you guys really open up on these young crowds, especially like it kind of must blow them away. You know. Yeah. I'm sure we think can happen at our shows, even to sixth and seventh at the Mirage. Yes. What we're hoping to happen would be some soldout shows that will be great anything can happen at our show, especially when they're at the Morongo. Talent in fifteen that Morongo. That sounds like a great like you know, then there was the Morongo. I will say anything can happen Tober fourth and fifth at the paramount theatre. Yes. Hometown. That's a great venue. We play jersey. That's just that's Jeff's hood, but we're gonna play a Long Island Gilbert, you should come to that show. I'm throwing it out right now. You should open for us in Huntington. What do you think are taking a pay cut? How to get there mega bucks owing? We were speaking about merchandise view or an I remember when you came and did the podcasts in my house, you gave me a bunch of hats and t shirt, right? And then you bought a bunch of t-shirts for me. Yeah. Well, it was Christmas time Gilbert, head just David either strike Ganic favors brought over. Wait. A bunch of bumping mikes, you know stuff and, and I went on my Gilbert, the website of thirty t shirts for my friends. All right. Nice. Very. Cherish. Those t shirts, this is the one with. Cousin Aaron uses his to wash his car. Jimmy Kimmel I gave him one. He uses it to. In with Gilbert's face on it. Yeah. Recent one, you guys remember seeing Gilbert for the first time, unfortunately, yes. Up close. Yeah. Let's see that must've been like five haircuts ago. More way. You'll still walked to Chinatown to get the five dollar haircuts. Okay. Good. Gave me a segue. I heard that your Chinese name is you again. Sorry, these times with tariffs and all the best we can do with these tariffs. No tip. You guys revealed on bumping Mike's where you I met the two of you. But you really remember seeing him for the first time had to be the improv. Right. I don't I don't even remember when I was allowed to talk to go over, because he was a legend when I started, and I never really saw him at the club, maybe a catch rising star. So you do a couple of spots or something like that. But I never like every night, you had already moved onto that you were a TV guy, you were filmed guy, and you did all that voice over stuff. So I think your club work in New York you too busy doing other stuff. Right. So what I would see him it was a huge deal, like that's Gilbert Gilbert's there. And then I was I was so into it, but it had to be in the nineties. I assume you remember you have any memory of this. Oh of meeting these two guys. Now I try to block it. I feel like Uber. And I became better and better friends, as we as the years went on. Yeah. As careers tanked. Remember fun dinners with you and fag. It enormous. Donald those who are sterile, remember bringing John stay most to see you. Caroline's on Broadway. John stay most is a friend and he was on Broadway. In a I think it was Chicago. He was starring in the place cargo and I brought my brother-in-law and John stamos to Caroline's were watching Gilbert and is about six seven years ago and Gilbert is up there doing Callisto Flockhart is so skinny. Davis is needling me and hey, he's great. But, you know, I saw them do these jokes fifteen years ago, the state. Statement. And I go to your in Chicago, then plays fifty years. Classic Joe Lockhart still skinny. He's still doing. Norman fell material seventy eight. When I saw him at the old Caroline's, Dave. Yeah. Jeff raised an interesting question he was asking Gilbert, what comics he admired Gilbert Harding out? Same question for you, because I'm curious were you one of these guys like Jeff that would sort of stay up to watch Rodney on Carson? Yes, you know, that was one of the first life has got was Rodney Dangerfield at the Westbury music theater. And. Eighties when he was his height. Maybe it'll be a big come. To meet him or anything like that. Out there in Rome. Kids laugh and a little too hard in the clubs. Loves everybody's doing, you know with the phones and all that recording. But the guy sitting next to me had a Pat out, and I go, what are you doing? Goes right in these down for tomorrow. I'm going to use at work. Really? Yeah. Like, hey, how was it? How how was your weekend? Jim, you know, my mother-in-law. I mean I mean my forget it. Yeah, it was so funny. Now, you told a story that you were talking, I guess a friars thing and you went up to the podium, and you're killing and Milton Berle. Oh, yes. That's in the book on. Oh, well my very first roast ever. Milton burrow was the Rothe master, and we were roasting Steven Seagal. Oh, and I, I didn't really care much about Steven Seagal. I just knew I wanted to be up 'til we Milton burrow, and buddy, Hackett and any young men and I had my one good suit on it was my first roast. I worked really hard on it. I had pages of shit. I had to go through I wanted to really just and every time I got a big laugh, my opening joke, was a lot of you don't know, me, but I feel uniquely qualified to be here today, because I'm also a shitty actor. Steven Seagal looks at me, he's the only one not laughing right? When I got the left Milton Berle poked me in the ribs. He was sitting right? Behind me as I was at the podium, and I jumped up, and it was kind of odd. And the only person I've ever done that to me, poked me, was my Kanter during my huff tower. That was like relax me to be relaxed. Comedian is is far like touching me. While I'm performing in front of fifteen hundred people at the Hilton in New York my first friars ready gave me a terrible introduction to just came from a, a convention from Las Vegas where he performed in a convention for lesbians with dildo rash. Gonna laugh, it's me finally, starting gauging with him and going back and forth. And, and. I saw Milton Milton. I saw you downtown today at TC shop. He's like, oh, yeah, I go twelve hundred bucks. And he starts coming after me. And finally, buddy Hackett was like thirty feet down the down the dais. Any he goes, he's off, Mike Lynch, Milton. Let the kid work. Remember when you used to? Down there, kiss, kiss buddy, the two of them said between the two of them. They have over thirty years of homosexual experience as and Milton came back and took over back back the podium. And I, I loved it. I was like, riffing with the great great ones, and afterwards, I asked Milton buddy said go talked to Milton. We're back at the friars club having a Trink and buddy and I sort of, you know, we palled up right there. I loved them for sticking up for me, and I went and I talked to Milton, Milton. I asked him why he was like poking, at me, and he and he didn't really answer directly, but he said, they only remember the home runs. They only member the home runs and later, like I guess he means I went onto log or something. And buddy later told me that it was because he was jealous. He would get jealous, and he would just interesting. He would be juvenile. He would just annoy people for no reason. It's hard to know either way. It was good advice. They only remember the home runs. I have a similar story with STAN laurel. Women's finger. The business end of his cane, if you know what I mean. Now a train was coming at us. So we got off the track. But there was another track and train was coming the opposite. Alfred trying to restart the. Didn't realize you were that very old yet. Pug. Wouldn't that be great if Rodney was alive during all this podcast? And can you imagine? It's going to take. Be at the sands. Before we jump off melty. It's in the book he did show you. You are one of the select honored few who got to see it. I did see his penis. This is for you Gilly can't move on thought about this in a long time. The fires club in Beverly Hills, Milton sort of Venezuela, chair stage of his life. I just on a roast Joe Torry the Yankees manager and Milton took about. And I said, look, Milton Berle. He's like ninety years old. And look, he has a wheelchair for his cock. Jump out of his way. But then he'd go back into the wheelchair. And basically he was not really performing anymore. And I would I would have lunch with him at the friars club like two times a week or so. And. I don't think he needed help getting to the bathroom. I think he wanted to show me as cock. The man through. Because you have to remember, you know. P his car was legendary every roast or a million jokes about the size of his penis. Right. Right. And when I wrote the Joe Torry I would say stuff like Milton boroughs. Dick is so big it has a warning track. Pine tar. The biggest thickest. Obviously, loved the attention, but, you know, and I go to the bathroom with them, and we're kind of side by side at the urinal, and, you know, I know this really sounds like a foodie story, but it really is. You know, he didn't say anything about it at all. But I just couldn't resist side eyeing like getting a little dribs and I didn't even see the whole thing. I saw what seemed to be like forty percent judging why. Whereas hand was like I saw a little less than half of it, and it was humongous over so envious. Question. What did it taste like? When I still toady feels stump now. We're a backstage in the network store, seventy. Tony's. Dumping all it's glory. Podcast. Much fun almost as much fun as the Mirage. Nice work, David. You befriend any older comics. Jeff has got like the really Jeff know. Is he really like we all I wanted to be same kennison? I wanted to be Bill Hicks. Right. And Jeff, you know, when he got involved with the friars, he basically, ry revitalized that whole thing he did. And he would tell me like, you know, like when I talked to my go, where are you? You know, I'm just going to whatever he's like shaky greens accountant died ahead on a plane. Usually. He knows all these great names. I it's like I wish I knew them. You know you learn a lot from from your elder. Absolutely. I agree with that. Yeah. Now, he'll Gilbert, I gotta ask you, you probably have met over your over your career like some people that we wouldn't even think of like, who was your comic idol who is it. Oh, god. Let's see. Well, I met Hannah young men a couple of times. I love. Maybe Henny I haven't, you know, I don't remember that many older comics. I've Jerry yet, Jerry that was. Seeing back it. Yeah. The big four Jerry. Hackett Berle Berle. I met a couple of times he was hysterical, when we were on Burt Chrysler's podcast cooking show with Bert and birds. Very funny guy. Really cool. He also is super respectful to the legendary, he asked Gilbert, who he worked within New York in the seventies, and all that kind of stuff. And I said that, you know, Gilbert, Newman mall. And he said, did he know Freddie prints? And I said, of course he did. He handed him a gun. Ted. Here's my gun and cocaine. I'll be back in a few minutes. And I like that real. Come on. We talk about those seventies comics. I love them when you started we've talked about guys like that guy liked to me Rogers. Yes. Yes. And I remember gape Kaplan, when I was in my early when I was a teenager. I catch Gabe Kaplan would go on. And one of his bits was, like, you know, there was this group kids in his school. Name the sweat, hav really. And yeah. And it was an annoying kid name horseshoe. That was his act. Yeah. Carson. Yeah, that's pretty cool. And of course in the act, he would say, and then they call them horsh it and could do that. Did you meet Johnny Carson never? No, never had any connection with Carson, and did you like it more as a host or as a magician? Advertise about his magic. Let's talk about it now. Cards, sony. Yeah. I like how people go. You know, he's a frustrated magician. Oh, okay. Magicians frustrate figure. You know where you guys Steve Martin fans in the day. Also, also magician my favorite about Steve Martin is that, like, when you think about crowds, and how crowds have changed is that he had the other end of the kind of crowds we have now because now everybody's so, you know, sensitive PC his crowd, they basically were all hi. Everybody was high. There are every kind of dry, you can imagine. They were party people, you know, and that's just the crowd e hat, and you could hear it on those albums of, like he can barely set up the joke. They're still laughing at the last joke, and they're like, just yelling Adam Saint Carlin. And also, what's his name, Albert Brooks had that kind of party crowd? They were more of a rock and roll crowd than today's crowd. That's for sure. Same problem. The Beatles head. To stop performing because crowd was to. We don't have that problem. Pam drop. I'm not lying to you. Frank. I feel like that gig. We did last week. I felt like we had like a rock PA. That's are really good. Yeah. That's felt like we had a rock show by going. That's not Amish country. Just looked at the artwork and liner notes from stuff for the bumping Meigs vinyl album, that's coming out. And when I was holding it, I did feel like I was in a band at away. Like, you know, when you're a kid, you're like, hey, if I ever have an album like this is going to be like, bumping Mike's to me feels like I'm in some kind of band, is nothing better on vinyl record than crowd work. I'll tell you that. You're listening to Hello dummy, which is thing. It was like he's talking to people. I wonder what's that guy's where? You must be my dad jokes Asian. Who would always be in the third row? The Asian guy third real. Right. I tell tell us a little bit about Rickles since we segue didn't I love him. Yeah. A nice tribute to him in Rolling Stone. Yeah. I did I care about them because, you know, he made it okay to not just be self deprecating, but all deprecating make fun stuff. He would he, he wasn't afraid to speak truth to powerful people, and I love that, you know, and. His daughter Mindy Rickles is on Gilbert. Oh, yeah. Episode of the historical Roshii, actually plays, Don Rickles, really. And I admired Don, I can't say we were close buddies, but I certainly consider them a friend. And he has he's the master at that, you know. So. You know, a lot of his stuff when you when you think about it like, how do you develop an act like that? And that's like a lotta land late night lounge. You know, drugs working with drugs working with hecklers. That's how he started doing that really kind of act. Vegas ovation is not the Disney Vegas. The ovation like you could just see it, and I'm like, the, the fighter, you know, and, and I love that and he developed it crafted until, like its own thing, and we're all like we're all in off how he did it. And especially back then it wasn't like a tweet. It was like a guy waiting for you outside wants to punch up, you know, like that was definitely a tune-up time. So that's what I love about Rickles, and how like the other acts would come down to see him because they knew was so different. You know, like Frank Sinatra all those guys would come and see him late. You know, they tell me back in the day, you know, he played slate brothers the name of the place on Las Sienna that he had an active is wasn't even insult comedy. Was really, I didn't know that, that that grew over time probably is Dave says, from the crowd work it works strip clubs. So he would see. See. Yeah. And he would thing like, you know, people. It'd be an actor. Went back to school. Yeah. Yeah. And he, he was a showman even even up in the nineties. He was headed orchestra on stage and he would do his Yankee doodle, and he would do James Cagney impressions. And he would tap dance and he would do he would bring people on stage and do little, like play acting. And a lot of it was he would improvise oftentimes I would get asked to speak at the same functions. Like, you know, friends would have big birthday parties and Don would speak, and I would speak in, of course, domino, we speak last, and he'd always tease me for being too prepared. Like I would write a roast, you know, John stamos, fiftieth birthday. I, I work days on it. I wanted to do. Well, you know, John stamos is so handsome birthday, candles blew him. Domino. We tease me about like being prepared. He would always tease me. Right. Right. And then I Ron Isley I really learned to trust myself and not be so prepared that I could go off the cuff at memorial, Don Rickles, his manager Tonio at the very last second said will you say something and handed me, a microphone on a minutes, notice, and I spoke about Don for a long time, very off the cuff emotionally, and, and I loved him. He was, you know, he was like the pope of comedy, the kind of comedy he did was healing help people laugh at themselves at took race and gender and made it something not important something to laugh about in at bonded people. So shout out to Don Rick would have been I think ninety two this week and performing to the end. Remember he lived old enough to start to get into that generation of being offended. Right. And he. He there was one Joe that was all over the internet horrible. John Rickles, was talking about Barack Obama. And he says he's a friend of mine. He was over the house, but he had to leave early mop broke. Everyone gotta fend, and I remember thinking, you know, I'll bet you if, if the president heard that he would elect. I don't know about your dad pulled Sinatra on Riccolo. Yeah. I when we were down aboard God, I was thinking about that the other day my dad loved to gamble in the eighties when they built resorts international casino than Atlantic City. My dad was a regular and there's a famous story. Where Don tells on the tonight show, he goes over to Frank. You know, you tell it, then I'll, I'll tell you goes over to Frank and he says, there's a girl, I'm with. And I'm really trying to I'm really trying to make it with her, and it would mean a lot to me would really be great, if you came over the table really quickly and set a quick. Hello. And Sinatra said, no problem that, that pretty much set up and then might and then when Frank went over. Donna said can't you see I'm with people? My dad heard that story on tonight show. My dad was just a caterer from New Jersey, who was enjoying Atlantic City in the gambling, and he would see Don Rickles at the same restaurant every month or so. My dad loved to go down there. And my dad's girlfriend time was also named Barbara. So he went over to Don instead I'm really went impress this chick. When you go to the bathroom you just wave. And pretend you know me my name is Ron her. Name's barbara. So whether Don got caught or we just being a good sport. He did it. He came over to my dad's table today. Runny is this Barbara, you told me about, you know, enjoy your meal. And my dad Trump is four and said, Don can't you see them? Eating. My dad, you know, he loved that story forever. He loved comedy, Dave. I got a question for you. Yeah. Why did you say that? Every comic is a porn historian. Every comic is a porn historian. Thing. You're, you're giving an interview paves porn collection. Well, I don't know if you know his Frank, I've become a faith-based common. So I'm not saying I didn't say it, but I'm saying I'm different man. No, I think that the vintage porn, which is the show that I did. Yes, I miss, by the way. Yeah. That was on Showtime. And that was two seasons. Never had Jeff on it Gilbert, you were on it. Right. I think so four. No, I'm not sure sure. Because that was my favorite of all the projects porn. What's that? I had a when I moved it was like, basically ever see like like an eagle when the when the birds now able to fly, it was like good luck. I had let go of all that, and I gave it to a mutual friend free a mutual friend Dave who whose friend would sell it on on the web. And I'm like, I don't even know if anybody has a DVD anymore. You know, like I'm the only guy with, like, three hundred DVD's. You know, it's like pretty sad. But I really love doing that show. I liked tributing the old porn stars would both the new people in the business and also letting the comics see some of these really retro raunchy clips. So that was the beauty of it and the comics, I think, since we have so much downtime so much alone time that porn does fill the void for a lot of us. Now, a lot of these younger comics, let's hit the gym. Let's I don't know play. Some. You know some game on online back then it was really just porn. And that's the del Rio, and boy, yes, Kristie canyons lives in my neighborhood. She does he was one of my favorites. Honestly. So be it of these names. Mean anything you Gilbert? Now. Vanessa del Rio. Okay. Then pets more familiar local girl, by the way. Yes. Yes. Staten Island I remember one porn. They will say short period of time when they used to they started showing porn and legitimate theaters. Yes. Tangle in Paris, what it was the exorcist and the behind the green door time. The late seventy Netherlands Jones. Yep. Screw on screen was one that Goldstein made. But, you know, when you think of those times, like, would I really stand online for, you know, double gaping anal? Training out. Good. Money, ready. Office. What was that show? We talked about, when we had you on Gilbert's kitchen. You were talking about a TV show that you loved as a kid. It was a, a, an outer space show. Do you remember this conversation? Geez. I dunno. Gilbert knows all those great TV shows sid mardi crossing or something I have no listened to the episode. But I will say this is that I am doing a new show and Jeff probably. Probably talked about it a little bit. But I, I have my own new show that I'm, I'm excited for this because they've been working on this idea for a long time. And, you know, and I was asking maybe you know Gilbert, if you'd wanna be on it because it's the new show, it's called celebrity hospice. People's careers die before they do we let them go with a little dignity. And. Excellent set up Jeff. Can I go pee pee? All right. Hold the fort. Yeah. We'll stop. So now we can talk all sci-fi stuff given. I didn't know you were a sci-fi fan. Did you watch the original Star Trek? No. You didn't like are you a twilight zone guy? They love it. We got rod sterling daughter coming here on Monday. It's no way all the way from Albany. Yes you from. Yes. I read that book about rod sterling as Jewish man. I really felt like I wanna be like rod, Serling a chain smoking World War, Two vet. Creative writing degree out of Syracuse university. I know a lot about him. I loved him and you're a plan of the apes fan is on the last show, TV show planet. He'll movies. Screenplay by rod surly and all of the Charlton Heston, Apopka post-apocalyptic movies, omega man. Yes. That was great. Toiling green. Of course we Robinson. Exactly. And, and then there was that other movie. That was also last man on earth. With Vinson price was the original omega man story. That's what all these, like, you know, all these movies now about zombies. And, you know, all that kind of stuff, that's, that's a cute Matheson. I think. Yep. Yep. Yeah. And now you know, I don't know what movies you guys watch. But you know it's very difficult to watch. I soon what the kids, you got to, you know, watch a lot of these kids movies, correct? Oh, yeah. And what? Because I remember the last time I was like, what do you do with the kids, and you said, you make them watch these old monster? Movie does. Yeah. Into. And I said, I bet your kids are so popular school. You wanna talk about the mummy, man. I want to ask how you Amy Schumer just named her baby. Yes. In part. Yeah, no, the middle name the middle name and Amy's always been. So good to me. So funny, and, and just like, you know, I was so excited when she's having the baby and she said, you know what I wanna I wanna I want to name the baby. Give give the baby your name, and I was like, okay. Well, Dave is goal. You know, that's always pretty, you know, Dave pretty, you know middle of the road, she's like, no, no your last name. And I'm like, what? You know, I felt bad for the baby. But then I was like it's such a nice compliment. You know how can I not, you know, just take it as that because it's so sweet of, you know, it really just kind of say, you know, the best compliment I got was like, well, you know, it's good. So you name a live on, you know, because you're never going to have kids like, okay, thanks. That or bridge or a street. That was cool. And yeah, she's she's has she ever been on the show? We never had Amy. So cool when we used to around like for a while there, we did a great or one time, it was me. Amy Jim Norton Ardy Jim we had already hang and I think even Bill Burr was on wanted to, and I always felt so bad for Amy because she was like, you know, this like she was the Maryland, and we were the munsters, you know, these old, these old, grizzled comics, and she held her own, and then she was great. So Amy is top notch. We should have her. Oh Where'd you get all the snack? Oh Ross came back with snack. I didn't know you took a shutter flights. Shuttle flight food, pretzels, and a banana, a gr- an unripe banana, oh, by the way, very, very flattering piece about you, Dave, and the times a couple of months ago, written by Jason cinnamon wrote a good book about the Letterman show, he was at this show. Eight labral Amy on a Caroline's and we and we sitting right in front. I felt so bad for him because both Amy and I were like that guy. Looks familiar, who is that guy? I think he's a reporter and then afterwards we talked to him. And I and I are you writing an article or something goes off duty? Don't worry about it. And then I guess it was a slow news week. Couple months later in the bag that out, so tip of that team and he is true comedy fan. So I I love that came down. He loves him to that you, you call logging stunt double. Stephen hawking stunt double. They're sitting feel so bad for the poor guy, sitting out front like one of those seats where you like this poor guy doesn't know what he's up to. And then, like, I guess, you know, he just roll with it, though. He just sat there. He was fine. Okay. Real quick. Before we get you guys out of here. I'm jumping around.

This is Dave on today's episode. Wwe Hall of Famer the Greatest Tag team wrestler of all time. Bully Ray and I talk about dark side of the rank from last night. The doctor David Schultz interview. I mean so many things to get into and we get into a lot of it with post of at the fights. Randy Gordon the commission that you can hear right here on Sirius. Xm fire nation the former New York State Athletic Commissioner. We talked to him about what we saw. Dark side of the rink. Also we talk to heath slater formerly of the wwe on what he's going to do next and my best friend in the business that's right do favorite fan of all the police academy movies. That's cody Rhodes of AWA joins US right now. On the bus for me anxiously awaited to see this episode. Dr D has been a controversial figure in the world. The pro wrestling for decades. Hell controversial figure right here on busted open He's been a guest here on busted open with you and I fully twice you talk about a tale of two different interviews. The first time we had him on I remember. We had him on for thirty four minutes. It was a great interview Talking about his book don't call me fake and he was amazing and he talked about not only his career embarrassing but his career as a bounty hunter and as a matter of fact when he spoke to us He was talking about that that following day he was going to be in New York to find somebody so that was a really really interesting thirty. Four minutes with Dr David Schultz. I WanNa say it was about a little over two years ago and then we had him on about a year ago bully and we had him on. May have been the quickest interview. We've ever done here on busted open. I want to say a clock in at maybe three minutes and thirty four seconds. So that tells you that he knows what kind of Doctor Day you're GONNA get but in one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty-four. I think we know what kind of Doctor David Schultz John got when he asked that question that you just asked me so after last night's episode of dark side of the ring. I was looking forward to our show today because I wanted to ask you a question based on Dr d being on our show twice. Us interviewing him twice after watching last night. Do you feel sympathetic towards Dr Day. And would he be welcome back on? Busted Open again. I would always put Dr Deepak on busted open again though I have. I have a feeling bully. Yobe on the other side of that argument and and I understand why based on the second interview we did with him. I've always been a fan of doctor. D David Charleston. When I say I've been a fan Dr David Schultz. You know it was the guy I love to hate. I think a lot of people love to hate because he he was for me. The definition of a heel wrestler. He was about as real as it could get. He brought you talk about a brock listener bringing credibility to pro wrestling. Dr D did that For the WWF. Back in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and one thousand nine hundred eighty five but he is a loose cannon. I mean I think that's probably the best way to describe Dr David Schultz and as much as I want to defend the doctor David Schultz before and even more so after watching that episode. Last night I don't think you can feel any kind of sympathy towards Dr Day. I did see a couple of tweets last night where people did feel a little sympathy as in well. He was just doing what his boss told him to do. So Dr Dee said in the documentary. That Vince McMahon had instructed him to go out there and blast the Guy. Keyword blast all caps underscored italics. The whole nine yards blast. I guess it was Dr. These interpretation of the word blast and Dr d being who he was at the time being that legit legit bad ass. I think he took blast as pop a shot as he did where I think men you in hindsight thing that blast meant verbally blast yes and especially since and I didn't know it until I saw the documentary last night. Where Vince McMahon said. Hey I want you to be in character. I want you to stay in character. So if like if your boss is saying hey stain character be that Dr David Chilton blast them. Yeah I think most Pe- Ninety nine point nine percent of the people that here that with thank you know what that means verbally not physically and you would think if it's a reporter for ABC twenty twenty. Why would you want to get into a physical altercation with somebody? Who's not an athlete at all? And it's just somebody that you know is probably one hundred sixty pounds soaking wet and as a reporter in in in two thousand twenty in the days that we're living in today you know that you can't even look at somebody the wrong way without the worry of being sued. Everybody is sue happy these days. I'm going to show you. I'm going to sue you back then. People didn't sue each other as much. But you definitely got sued for assault one thousand nine hundred eighty four and that was full blown assault so I can't believe that. Vince McMahon who was building an empire at the time wanted one of his very known superstars to go out there and physically assault a reporter from twenty twenty and for those who may not know. Obviously me and you know Dave. Twenty twenty back then was a monster show on television. It was on once a week. People tuned in Bobble. Walters was on the show. You know Lots of very credible journalists run twenty twenty minutes. It was like sixty minutes and I'm not even sure people realize our younger listeners might know what sixty minutes as. That's why I was trying to explain. Twenty twenty but these were these were credible. New Show is not like you. Watch the news today where it's more I don't know you're you're fed a lot of fear over fact sometimes so John. Sasa was very very high profile at the time. So for Vince McMahon to suggest David Schultz which he did not to physically blast him was a little too much interpretation by the good doctor. And there's a lot here. There's a lot to digest from that episode which I think we both agree. The last two episodes of dark side of the ring were a little underwhelming would probably be the best way to describe the last two episodes. I thought that Jimmy Snuka episode was extremely one sided and the Dino Bravo episode was just a little underwhelming for me. This APP episode was I thought excellent from beginning to end and I thought it was great and it really brought back a lot of strong memories of that time. Because you know I remember that episode of Two Thousand Twenty I videotape that episode of Two Thousand. Twenty like that was back when I was full blown so into pro wrestling that at that time and it's kind of probably for a lot of younger fans. They probably wouldn't understand this. The mainstream press and mainstream shows like a two thousand twenty never talked about pro wrestling so like when Warner Wolfe would talk about pro wrestling after you know a a newscast or like something like twenty twenty. I got my already because that was so rare that those types of shows with pro wrestling. And there's so much here digest because and a lot of people forget about this and it's crazy because I always bring it up and people even tell me that I'm crazy and that it never happened but they showed it on dark side during last night and that was Hogan with Richard Belshazzar. Like if you look at what John Dos. Oh what happened to John? Dos on Dr Day and you look at what Ho Cogan did to to Richard. Belcher on late night TV. I mean it's one in the same bully I mean you had Dr d David Schultz. You know because you know John. Stop on the way. He asked that question to let me you to standard question is this fake would just pop is attitude and he got a slap in the face and then he got another slap in the face. You got the same type of attitude from richer bells or with HULK HOGAN AND MR T. Now think of this. This was after the incident with John. So you're thinking that hey if anything. There's a fear in this roster where they would not want to have any physical altercations with anybody and this is less than a year after that incident with John. Stahl MR T. AND RITZ AND MR T. In Hogan on our on richer belches late night talk show promoting the first wrestlemainia. And who can put them in a sleeper hold. Richard Belts collapses in his arms. And Hogan's US let's go and let's his head just crack open on a hard floor and that's been pretty much bully a raised from memory. I mean you bring up Dr David Schultz or John Stahl immediately. You think of that incident at Madison Square Garden. Where Dr these slaps in the face? You could bring up richer belter and you think of law and order you. Think of the stand up comedian. You think of his late night talk show. You don't think of that incident and certainly when you bring up Oh cogan. It's amazing how one was used to end a career and the other one was completely wiped off the books and forgotten about very political. Yes extremely I WANNA follow up on two of the points you just made getting back to the past two episodes of dark side of the ring. I don't agree with you with the use of the word underwhelming. When it came to the snooker episode I will agree on the Dino Bravo episode that. I really didn't get anything that I didn't know. I think they did a good job of telling the story that we knew already. But for the most part not too much meat on the bone there. If you WANNA use the word underwhelming for you as your own personal take. That's fine. I'll agree without use of the word. What the snooker episode. I didn't think it was underwhelming. I thought it was a necessary. And this is not in defense of Jimmy. This is in defense of nothing. Good came out of that episode. That is a very dark episode. Yes as dreamer likes to say it is called dark side of the ring and I get it. But if you'RE GONNA you're gonNA drudge stuff up from thirty years ago and show the dark side of the ring IDC leash show me the light at the end of the tunnel even in the most tragic of stories Crispin Wa. Nancy Benoit's story a Daniel Ben Wa. I got light at the end of the tunnel because of Sandra and David. I'm sorry is it David. You know what I mean to size. Sandra David I got some light which snooker I got no light. And that's why I thought that episode was unnecessary. So that's my choice of words Hogan and and Richard Bell Zone. So that's something that I had heard about but I. I don't think I've ever seen that before so I found myself. Real propped up the minute that aired last night on dark side of the wrinkles. Oh what's this? I don't necessarily remember this just in Hogan and Mr T. all decked out in their you know tight spandex to weight belt you know they they looked you know so you know eighties wrestling which just brought back. Childhood memories was very cool. When I saw Hogan Hook that front face lock I went. I was like who I gassed. Now it's just a front face lock right. Dave doesn't look like that big of a deal of a hold that one move. I am so particular about in training young wrestlers. Because that's the one hold. There's a couple of them that looks like it's absolutely nothing but if you cinch it in even a little bit banged a guy can go out and when I saw massive Hogan Hawk Skinny Little scrawny Richard Belcher. When I saw him hooked to hold I was like I didn't shaving when I saw Hogan just rare back even for. Did you see that Dave key rare back just a little bit maybe just an inch and Belshazzar went right out. The reason that happened is hulk probably had him underneath the throat. And Not Underneath the chin. Where you're supposed to have the hold hooked is if your forearm doesn't lay across the guy's Chin and it rides up underneath the guy's throat the minute you cinch. It in the slightest amount of pressure will put him out. When I saw that I was absolutely shocked. And they are they're really lucky that belches brains splattered across the floor because when you go out like that you don't have a choice on how you fall down and that's the thing like obviously I'm not condoning. The Doctor D. David sold slapping of John. Stott so I think we both understand that probably the wording that even Dr d admits that Vince McMahon said does not need a physical altercation but to me what who did the richer belts are is far. Worse than what? Dr David Saltz did the John Style. In my opinion show. Much worse legitimately showcase guy out cut the oxygen off to his brain. Really really bad listen. A smack is a smack. I'm sure John. Stachel caught a smack from his mother his father. He's old brother his sister. Everybody catches a good smack. Once in Awhile Watch goodfellas. They'll tell you but what Hogan did that is A. That's a that's used in the octagon to this day. Legit front face lock of front naked choke that I particularly am so careful when I train younger wrestlers about. If you don't believe me just go back and watch the footage of Hogan in bells are the minute Hogan just and he did it gently Dave very gently. He reared back on it as soon as you do. That thing guys going out and he so that happens but even worse like he just lets him. Go like you know. He's he's a standup prone position. He just dropped on his head because Hulk didn't realize I don't know of hope was ever like I'm sure he was properly trained in the hold. I just don't think at that moment in time. Hulk realized that I'm taking a very very small man into my hands. Dave if I put you in that hold okay. I'm three hundred twenty five pounds. You're about a Buck. Sixty soaking wet with a brick in your pocket. If I if I hook that hold on you and just stand there. Were totally fine. If I cinch back even an inch you're going to go out. It's one of the. It's like the legit sleeper. Hold now I don't remember if they showed it last night but I remember that because again just like I said before I videotape that so I'd watched him in a million times so he puts it on like you said he's cinches back he's out like you see you see beltre's arms go like you know shaking intense up because and then boom they both collapse and then Hogan just like just let them go so he falls back. He hits the back of his head and then built sewers out and I don't remember that they played this or not. But he's out cold on the ground. Hogan goes over him and just start slapping him in the face to wake him up. He's like subway sly slapping them side to side on its face to wake them up and then belts jumps up to his feet and he's like we'll be back after like he just you know just instinctively like gets up on his feet and throws to a break and then they go to break and then the story is right. After he threw their break he collapsed again because he liked the back of his head was busted open like he had to get multiple stitches in the back of his head. Because at drop from Hogan but since seeing Hogan like knowing that an blood's coming out the back of his head he's on the ground and Hogan's Astaxanthin like slapping him in his face to wake him up and I'm like one but I wonder if hoke thought that Belgium was working him even. Why this core is this before or after lawler and Calvin this well after daily hotel it was. He was getting worked. I don't know all I know is that hold is legit dangerous and the reason hulk just let him go because hold probably wasn't expecting him to get choked out that quickly.

Thanks for the time. Hey guys how are you dave? I hope you're doing fine in this lockdown bully. I hope you guys are just doing absolutely just staying safe and healthy you also buddy. Thank you now You guys are just doing a great job. The excitement you guys always brings amazing. I gotTa Tell You when I was commissioner. I always have done with professional wrestling. I looked at it differently than most of the other commissioners ever did. And Vince McMahon. Used to tell me. You are the only commissioner that I've ever true light and I don't know if he was just saying that but you know I took that as a compliment. But yet he was always trying to free himself from bonds if you will of the New York State Athletic Commission and the regulation we had over wrestling. Which wasn't any kind of it was just making sure the medicals were in and the licensing was done that that was about it. I never told him what matches he couldn't couldn't make so were you surprised then in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine that he asked to be removed from that you know to to kind of. Peel back the curtain and say you know what we're not a legitimate sport where entertainment. No it didn't surprise me at all. I knew it was coming. And what's so funny ironically. How things would work out my right hand man who I think you probably know because of his affiliation with the WWe My right hand man at that time was the guy the name of rich herring. Well well riches just nothing but a great guy as loyal as loyal could be as brilliant as brilliant could be and he told me it was then with me. He was with me from in my seven years as commissioner. He told me we're GONNA have to be very careful because the WWe is gonNA be coming after us and we're going to be taken to court because they want to free themselves from bondage of regulation and I said and what will that mean for us and he explained well if we're not regulating wrestling anymore. More than likely the state is going to cut our budget in half and commissioner. You're going to have to let half the staff goal and you know what I don't mind running an agency or anything like that. But I'm not. I'm a softy. I am not big on finding anybody. Even if they deserve to be fired and I wasn't in the mood could take a staff of about thirty six and just fire eighteen of them. You know what let them do their their licensing or whatever so each and every time. Vince McMahon tried to take us to court. I basically showed in court how dangerous this could be and I said yes. He's trying to say that it's entertainment and it is but so is boxing. That doesn't mean that it's any less dangerous. These guys are doing things where I'm standing in the back and I'm watching them. Once they get to the back on the floor holding their shoulder holding their neck holding their knees holding their ankles they get hurt and if this thing is deregulated they're going to get hurt even more and then I said to the judge basically and if they're hurt your honor there's GonNa be bloodshed and that blood shit is going to be on your hands. Not Mine if you deregulated. And they wound up keeping it for all seven years after I left. The commission is when they deregulated it. And wouldn't you know when I left shortly before I left? The handwriting was on the wall with the change of administration. Rich herring left the commission and went to work for the WWE. And once the. W W we had him on their side. It was very clear that deregulation was coming out. Was there ever an incident randy? I'm sorry we got you on so late because we're short on time. Was there ever an incident where you had to stop match? Was there ever an? And it's where you had to interfere as commissioner. Well Yeah I mean. There was one where I had a Andre. The giant was gonna be wrestling at the Nassau Coliseum and I had a step in minutes before the match because a medical had come back to me saying that Andre. The giant was suffering a mild heart attack. And yet they still. WanNa put him in the ring and I said listen. Here's the most I'm going to allow and I. I basically orchestrated this whole thing. And between him and jake the snake Roberts and went on for a half hour back and forth there. We're going but I wouldn't let under get into the ring so I mean that was one of the Times I had to step in regulation especially back then was needed and I'm glad I did it. Randy's resist what year what year. That was a lot simply. Look up the date of Andre. The giant death was some somewhere in the mid nineties or so. It was shortly before his death that I had to stop this from going on. He was not well at all and he did not. He belong probably in a hospital not in any wrestling ring whatsoever in any arena. Not at all and I'm glad again that I stopped. That match mapping did you. Was that an ekg that you had read from the day of or an ekg from Andrei past now. That was a an ekg that was taking that week which the wwe was actually withholding from us and it was because of my right hand man. Rich hailing he. He pointed it out. You stayed all over the dockers and everything and all over the wwe before he gets in the ring you're GonNa have to provide us with that ekg and they actually held it out until the day the match and then I got results and I went running from the commission in New York City and I drove out. I happen to live on Long Island. Only a few minutes from the Nassau Coliseum and I went over to the Coliseum and I went in that night and I basically I took the ekg and I showed a two of the executives from the wwe. Jane who who? Who DID YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH? Randy? J SCARPA Pat Patterson they were the executives that day and they Queen Commissioner. Don't do this. Just let him get in will make it. We'll do this. He's not getting in the ring and they pleaded with me and pleaded with me but there was a pad drought and they will tell you what. Here's the microphone. You tell everybody that the match is not happening. I said that's not my job. My job is is what I'm doing right now. You figure it out how to deal with it Tony Ferguson.

I am great and how about you guys. Oh very high you know. Maybe I couldn't be any better man better. Man is absolutely great to have you on. It's great to hear Your Voice and I'm GonNa ask you how you doing but I kind of think I know the answer. You're doing great. Aren't you really do? I really am man. I mean it's like one of those things it's like crazy the here and crazy to say but you know. I'm not doing bad at all like at all and he. I know I know what you mean. But can you kind of explain to our listeners? How somebody just heard you say. I'm doing great. I'm not doing bad at all and our listeners are probably thinking. Wait a minute if you just got released by the WWE. How could you be doing so great? Can you kind of bring us behind the curtain and tell us about your feelings right now? Of course man. It's one of those things like I mean. Of course yes sucks you you give her lease fired whatever. It is some anywhere that you have to work for of course is GonNa suck but what when I say it's like people don't understand that I was there for four teen straight years. You know I mean. I grew up on television pretty much. So it's one of those things where like I never was stupid with money. Always live below my means. I mean I got a family. You know two little girls that I'm worrying about where I stashed all my money and all that stuff. But it's one of those things dude. I had a good career. Yes I didn't. You know become world champ and not even teach him but it's one of those things to where like when you look at it and you like you know analyze at all to. I had one hell of a run and it was awesome. Fun Got to meet so many new people you know. Make relationships you know. Just it wasn't a bad experience for me then. I'm not get you know my way a lot of course but then again who does. It's one of those things men like. I had fourteen years there straight. No breaks and now yeah. The Corona virus took me out but Just one of those things where. I'm just glad that I was smart with all my money. And you know and like my kids are in a good school district and you know. I've got everything I need so that that's what I say what. I'm doing fine okay. It's all good. And that's the most important thing bully always preaches. You know when you sign that contract you know. Make sure that you are taken care of and while you're doing it that the money is put away because things like this are going to happen to the business does change and obviously you're able to do that and with children and I'm a family man myself. I know how important it is to make sure that your your kids are in a good school district and that you're happy with that situation and you know this is a term. That's used a lot and it's not just in the world of wrestling but any business and that's burn out. Do you think like you know your career and like you said all those years. Would you describe it as a bit of burnout as well? Describe my career as a lot of fun you know but once you try to think your teeth into something you're passionate about and you just keep hearing no no no not now not for you. We don't like it Blah Blah Blah Blah. But you know you can pull it off because they will always give you stuff and you would pull it off and it's like yes you get burned out and yes you you know you feel defeated and then it makes you not WanNa try harder and then it makes you feel like you can't do it you know. It's just one of those things where it's like a domino effect when you hear it so often so yes hundred percent. I was burned out but I'm not going to quit because I'm not a quitter you know. I'M GONNA try to keep swinging man. You know keeps swinging but obviously I kept missing so I don't know but yes I was one hundred percent you know burnt out like but I mean I'm not saying everyone that hears this. They knew I was my family. Was My friends. Knew I was the locker new I was. I mean. It's just one of those things man you know. It's like fourteen years. You know keep going going going and the next thing you know you get stuck in this role and you can't get out of that role and it's just one of those things where you keep swinging and that's what I did. He's obviously the most important thing over that. Fourteen years is the amount of money you're able to make and stash away for your family because as me and you know as other wrestlers no the only thing tangible in our business is the money and it really is the most important thing and when you're in business that's the number one thing you WanNa do. You want to accumulate money because you never know when something is going to go wrong. And we don't have 401k's and we don't have pension plans and all that so we have to. You know we have our own business and our own boss but the second thing you want to get out of your career is fun. I know you. You are always having fun. Always a blast to be around your your brother. Your your fun to hang with. What was the most fun you had your fourteen years at the WWe Holy Crap? I can write a book about that. But like what angle? What story line or you know what? What were you able to sink your teeth? You what what did they allow you to sink your teeth into. Well of course you know when we were first. The young kids come out and we were nexus. That's what put us every one of us on the map. You know just being that rebel group China. Take over that little deer that everybody always talks about with me. Nexus. It's like Oh man. I remember next Assistant Matt but I just knew that I was young. Still you know and we would pitch ideas and of course. They weren't listening then but it was one of those things that was one of the like five times for me where it was like. Holy Crap up here. I made it. I'm getting to work all these guys. Holy Shit and then he'll be with drouin gender. That was a lot of fun because we have it. Took like this rock star Gimmick to like you know we lived So we'd be out. You know having a good time you know party and you know all this stuff you know trying to live like Motley crue but now you see how that third out you know and then The one thing that I could honestly say that I was able to. You know talk about it. Really get my way a little bit. Whenever I became a free agent and like they just want to for the whole draft thing to say. Oh we're just GONNA put it on the Internet that you've got Jackson snack nuts and I'm just like no hell. No we got something here. We've got an angle here. You know like we could really let me go back to Raleigh smack down. Let me try to earn my crazy. You know and then thank God gave Was there he was like? Yeah I love they even had it. Both like yeah. Let's do that did and I mean Damn it works you know like and then. I was like well. I don't WanNa come down the ramp. Let me come through the crowd. Let me do this. Let me do that. Can I say this? Can I say that they're just like yeah? Go for it. That was like the very first time and that was what only five years ago I was so it was like that was the very first time that I actually was like. Wow like me you know my opinions and you know like let me do the things that I would like to do a little bit you know. Of course. I couldn't go as far as I wanted to. But yeah but then again. Like and then the whole wholesome story of you know I got kids and Mea Rhino Rhino. Helping me and you know get in that contract and winning the smackdown taxiing. Titles that that to me was like a beautiful storyline where people actually could relate to man by damn. I got kids too. I fight breath listener. You know like if you had to get that job you know it was like people feel like can relate to that when you have relatable stories my goodness they work and you definitely had relatable stories. You first started with the nexus and and when you mentioned the nexus I get happy because everybody remembers that attack in June on raw and I and people don't know what was real. What was in you know you know Daniel Bryan Choke Justin Roberts with the tie and Daniel Bryan Fire? Do like like you didn't like that was so rare. You know in the wwe that you had things like that. So I WANNA ask you about first of all what was going in your head that night and then ultimately how it ended at Summer Slam That night it was just a lot of I wanNA say like I don't WanNa say confusion. But we were like nervous but excited it was We didn't really. We didn't WANNA hurt. No one but they told us to go and demolish everything you know just like whoever's in your way take them out you know that type deal and it's one of those things where we we did and it got you know. I mean people were crying. Stand like throwing stuff at like. They were genuinely mad. Scared to where we're like AOL. Yes like that was amazing. How would they felt that? I mean I I had a coke. You know. Hit me in the back. You know so it was just that right there. We got him and then going through next this my goodness I wish we could have just had her hand and her grip on a little more because it it died way to soup and we all know this like everyone knows. I mean Summer Slam. We should've took over period. We should have won. I mean me Gabriel. And it was the last three. And then you know pretty much Daniel and saying that took us all out and It was just like one of those things is like as soon as that happened. I mean we shifted from fourth to second year in a matter of one night and then it was like like damn but we worked this way and this hard you know for us in the company is just for Vista happened. Like we couldn't wait a few more muscle mania mega group and Shirley just destroy us or whatever but like yeah should not have ended the summer slam man. He's UAE. Why did it ended Summer Slam? I mean I knew we were going over the next thing. I knew. It wasn't one of those things you know. I'm sure there's people that walked in and out of their chains Vincent mind all that Fun Stuff. Did you have a say? Did you try to change Vince? His Mind No. I didn't know we. None of us knew we were winning. And then a matter of a couple of matches before were not oh so so at the beginning of that night. You thought that this you guys were going to go over and you're going to win that match and then somewhere over. Oh so you were changed last Bennett. Wow Yeah wow and I still don't know the Ho- stores and you never going to know the whole story because they always tell you I don't know honestly he came up with. Oh yeah you know it's like you can never get the right answer? You only get like around the Bush answers so so to sum it up in in wrestler speak you got politics and then everybody wanted to pass the heat as to who did the politiken much bad. We're all been there brother. We often and he obviously he. Obviously this is frustrating for you as a performer and as a wrestler but as a fan pulley and he got understand we were so invested in this storyline as fans. Like this is something that was so unique to the wwe and then like if you build and you build you built and then it's just like a fizzle out and then once it fizzles out it's dead so like you know you're looking at it like so like pull you always talk about the business side of pro wrestling when you look at the business side of. How is this a good business move? You're making money poor invested in it and then you kill it. Once it's killed it's dead so you know on every level. That was such a bad decision that night at Summer Slam. I agree with you. I can't even say there myself so I mean obviously the wwe always being a baby face company and all and only giving the nod to the heels. If it's GONNA make a bigger baby face they obviously should have done the right thing thing. Then they didn't. We know the story for fourteen years you were basically a slave to the grind of. Wwe You know sometimes being on the road as much as three hundred days a year I would assume right. Now you're at home your with your family. You're finally getting to enjoy family life. You're actually you probably feel like you can breathe again. But I'm sure you're you're too entertaining to not be involved in the world of pro wrestling anymore. Where do you see yourself in the future if somebody would have come up to you right now and go? Hey here's a pencil. Write down what you WanNa do where you WanNa do it and who you WanNa do it with when you look at the world outside of the. Wwe What do you see for Heath? Slater I see many many options. Man being honest with you I mean then you you know like you said we've been in the ring together you know. I love entertaining and have a good time at work for the match so I think with me our just you know. Be One of those territory hoppers man. 'cause one I have never been anywhere else effort. I got signed at the age of twenty three and I was on the indies for like a year and a half you know and then it was developmental from from deep south to F C W and x t to wwe. You know it's like I've never have been outside of those walls so I feel like I'm a like a little. You know peacock that can fly just blind around and I'm GONNA do my toes into like you know hell as w new Japan. Tna Ro age NWEA like. I'm serious I just WANNA go. Work have a good time doing it man. Like I'M GONNA come back with the new look. I'm going to be the gym. Because let's be honest. I did get out of shape. I need to get back in shape and I'm going to have new music to that my buddies making for me so I'm GonNa hit the ground running when I can but it's one of those things where like I just WanNa have some fun. Go to these companies or you know whoever would like to work me like I am. This is like a new chapter new open book for me to where I literally just WanNa go and have some damn fun to have some fun in the rain and with the audience you know it sounds a and you're you're one of those wrestlers. No matter what they did. The fans still loved you. The fans were still emotionally invested in. You like you said when you got the shirt on that says I have kids instantly. Probably everybody WHO's watching. That show can relate because they have kids so. I think you're going to have any problem having that fan base. Follow you wherever you go now. This is coming as a fan. You might scoff at this bully. You might scoff at this as well but this really upset me that something that happened with you at Wrestlemania. Twenty eight and you know bullying. I started this. Show talking about Dark side of the ring with Dr D. Dave shelter. Everything was protected. You know nobody wanted this. Show any weakness especially from somebody outside of the business. Did it bother you at all at Wrestlemania? Twenty eight when they flow ride a decked you and you fell to your F- did that bother you at all when they when they asked you to do that is. It's one of those things man that that moment is that that's when flora pushed me out when against the wall right. Yes all right this So literally they WANNA flow rider. Do an interview. You know just a little you know. Twenty second whatever. So they're like. Hey you know you wanna do this interview with Flow right now and he's all pushed you down. Whatever I'm just like sure why not. You know it's flo rider. He's actually a big dude. You know he was very popular back then so I literally say yeah sure. Why not because I've always that I didn't know I didn't know how to say no type deal you know? And but what got me was when we were in there and he was pushing me. He legit pushed me about ten times against them. Cinder Block Walk to where I looked over road dog. And I'm like I'm not taking no more like this. Better be it to where it was just like. Yeah I'm on wrestlemainia forgetting pushed down by Flo rider but my goodness. This is the hardest back bumps that I've been taken in years. You know one of those things where like. It's yeah a mania for that and which they like. Ooh I got on Wrestlemainia and got beat up by FLO rider. Nothing like that. It wasn't one of those like I kinda forgot about it being honest until you've been but sorry I I don't I don't take shame you know doing stuff like that. You Know Snoop Dogg wanted to clothesline me and throw me over the top rope. Sure I'll make it look like Hulk Hogan did it back in the eighties. You know what I mean but it's just one of those things like I don't take like I don't I'm not I'm not opposed to do it. You know so. I don't know if that answers your question but I do know that my goodness he has a hard push and my back hurt. Like legit Florida needs to learn how to work right. I try to teach the kid. Some some people might listen to say. He's got to learn how to wrap too. But that's another tape. The Vote Dallas man when we were in the social outcasts. GotTa that against him and the whole place was Chad in for bow and boo flow rider. Because he actually did better they go not not shocked at all. He's just knowing your personality like I said you know you're a good dude. I don't think you're ever a jealous kind of guy. I think you always you know. Wanted to see guys succeed. And you being a part of three M B with gender and drew two part question. How happy were you for each one of those guys when they were giving these the big opportunities that they were given and two? Were you shocked by either one of them able to being able to get to the top of wwe and becoming champion? I was one hundred percent. You know happy because those guys like legit friends of mine like I love my care for it so I know the struggles that they've been through because I went through it with them. You know like I I know it I saw it. I was there with it and But no percents. That's my brother's like hell. Yeah good for you guys Gender was shock because for some reason I think everyone like about gender was like the weak link or something but to he is like the most motivated person. I have ever. And he's one of those guys it. When his mind is set on the goal he's GonNa get it and that's a fact he's just that type of person and I feel like gender rubbed off onto jrue because they're best buds do but they live in Florida. You know they can hang out they. Can you know do all that? And then like drew just got focused and you know and just you know hammer down and nobody became so I feel like genders like little guru dude that lights the incident. The next thing you know you're going to see a Pitney or something but But Yeah I think gender man his his mindset is just so damn strong to where like he's he's back he's probably going to go and fight drew you know and all that stuff and I hope they do. That'd be great but no man. I was one hundred percent excited for happy for him and they deserved it because they busted the damn ass. Well he's coming up to the to our break right now but before we before we go off. I just wanted to say one thing. I've told you this to your face. I've said this on social media and I will say it again today. You took the very last three d. That Muindi von ever hit and the wwe thank you brother. You took it like a champion and I and we appreciate you for it and I hope I see you out there. You know down the road and I hope you get to do every single thing that you wanna do.

Rhodes cody how are you this morning? Let's go ahead and get rights to the more Pressing matter. I'm so glad. We're talking about the semi finals Nervous can be one match at a time. Do the work all that good stuff but I I. Maybe I'm out of the loop but I'm pretty fairly in the loop I think is it true. Is this a valid thing? What I've seen that you have not seen the Lord of the Rings I have not seen not first of all Kodama hold up. No no no no every movies like five six hours so you don't see photos journey. You don't know about bill those journey. You don't know about the Eric how you don't know about the army of the dead yet serious yet. An actual company of viable Real Company in two thousand and twenty chose you to represent pop culture some way with professional wrestling. That is just flat out. You're responsible that's uncultured that's just clowns stuff. You're stupid that absolute clown a little boy with a fire. Hydrant had plan with a microphone. I am shocked. The Star Wars issue is is is another issue aside but how you haven't watched Lord of the Rings you've gotTa Watch Lord of the Rings. Let me tell you something. Kosher that J. R. R? Tolkien guy was an asshole. All right so I am not going to watch any movies from books that that man wrote. I don't have five hours to watch part three of the Johnson forest of Lord of the Rings. Positive that you have more than five hours. I pretty much seen what you do in a day. You have Odyssey's trying to what you have plenty of time and you should give it a shot. You know bags US please. No I'm out. Listen you got me to watch. The man delorean. I did that for you. Totally you know the challenge out there and do the watch along with you and bully with returning to Jeddah or one or the other remai- after movies like whatever they were all. I'll do that but I am. Not Watching one of the Lord of the Rings Movies. That is not going to take place so you. This is the thing that you don't realize like this is a different you're talking. This isn't little boy. Cody used to come on and talk about his wrestling matches. I'm an executive in the executive world right now. If you think your job with serious is safe because you just. You've got some sort of tenure. Out of your frigate mind you need to watch Lord of the rings you need to watch the Hobbit you need to respect the culture. That's in it and then we'll talk but I know bubba is there. Bully is with you so I'll talk to bullied today. Go ahead daily basically you can just yeah. You could just say goodbye to everybody. We'll talk to you tomorrow. Okay by having Nice Day Cody Hawaii brother. I am really good I am. I'm happy it's Wednesday. It's my favorite day of the week. We've got the semi finals tonight. for this new TNT championship. So I'm really good on the on the eve of a big matches you've been on many occasions so very good. I gotTa tell you and I've told you this before privately. I've said it in public on this show. You said you know. Wednesday is your favorite day of the night. Obviously man when you sit back as a fan and are you able to detach yourself from. You know what you're doing as an executive and as a fan when you watch all of the products do you really do you truly and honestly believe that dynamite is a more fun product and anything else you're getting on TV. Right now Oh heartedly and I you know during this period of time where a lot of the content you know is prerecorded or taped A good chunk of it I still obscene it multiple times and one of the best things about when you go through these screeners or you look at items In post production if they can just bring a smile to your face organic real smile or and I'm sure you've seen this bullying in catering because this is where it always happens but that thing where wrestlers watch their matches and you see them. Start moving around you know like with the with the you know the tight falls in these see their face almost like going through the motions. Is there watching them their own selves? That's one of those things where they w like it's always Brought a smile and the content is king right now especially right now with corona virus and everything and the corns eat content is king and I think our content is the best day can I can I ask a question or do I have to go on our walk. Like firstly to Lord of the rain. Merb`ys yeah you can write your question down on a piece of paper. Maybe bully can ask. 'cause you've you've gotten the rub off that guy for so long and you continue to disrespect him by not having any any bearing any footing in pop culture. Who hasn't seen the best picture return of became got a Best Picture in Academy Award? It's it's Asinine Day asinine. Have you seen Bachelor Party? Have you seen zapped? Have you seen just one of the guys? Have you seen the police academy movies? That's culture my friend. Dave I am. I am thirty four. I am The I think you got the numbers wrong. I haven't seen any of the police academy movies. All right and they if I if draw little heat for that you're not seeing Lord of the rings it's just bullshit and I know there's someone in that studio there. What are your higher ups or producers or somebody who can run it up the chain that we've got this idiot we've got this absolute ignoramus this mouth breather this knuckle drager who's just in the. Xm busted open sweet. Just how you how you were chosen for this role. But what's your question? This is awesome. Because there's no two wrestlers on the face of the earth. That Dave sweats. More than Cody Rhodes and Chris. Jericho all I hear about Codeine Chris. Coating Chris. I WANNA get cody on Chris. To hear him to hear you. Burying him is such music to my ears. And what cody saying is so right Dave? Now it's so wrong and you know it's always like a here. Never meet your heroes. Well this is an example of it. Wow I met. I met you a hundred times. He always introduce yourself like. It's the first time I've seen you. We've taken picture together. I've been beyond cordial and beyond polite but there are limits. There are limits. I out there. You have a microphone that lots of people tune in for a lot of people tune in for busted open right now jim raw. It's probably listening. The legend the greatest of all time goat. Jr is probably listening. And here we are in discussion about a fantasy novel slash movie because of just how much of a screaming dumb ass. You are talking it up. I bring you brought it up. Surely one that starts to fight. I think it's jealousy bully because when you go to a e w what do you see you see the big legras aheads? I don't see any big. Like Cody Ed's in the back and watch adage cody baggage I'd Nada. W Eric Bischoff silver-haired. Do you got going on positive family member who looks like Jerry Vale the Silver Fox and by the way athletes that I wanna see with no shoes on is Kevin von Erich Not Bilbo Baggins. I don't need to see that Shit. I'll go for a walk myself and I have to watch it on. Tv somebody going for a five hour journey walking from here to there doing chanted farces and all that crap but the question I wanted to ask you. Cody ABOUT A W CONNOR. Follow up to a bully was saying and listen bullying. I have been praising a e W up and down for the present you know the presentation that you have every single Wednesday. I mean an awesome move having Jericho and Tony Shivani doing commentary. 'cause I think they've done a tremendous job and they're entertaining and I don't WanNa say it's on the same level because that would be almost sacrilegious but it does remind me a lot of Heenan and monsoon where it doesn't matter what's going on in the ring you can hear the commentary and you could be highly entertained. Do you agree with that wholeheartedly. There's a lot of Heenan monsoon a lot of Ventura. Monsoon is as another area That I I actually said this to both Tony and Chris I think people are GonNa Miss It. The duo and I think we've discovered like a lot of things have come up by necessity. There's been a bit of a you know the movie the replacements. There's been a bit of a replacement story with you. Know the limited roster. We had As we were filming during the quarantine and one of the silver linings. And there's been a lot of them is the duo's I think people are GonNa miss the commentary team of Jericho Antoni Shivani and to see Tony. Sherwani grow into this role even further a role that he didn't have to grow into is really amazing. He's been an MVP During this time period but I'm also real excited to get Jim to get excalibur and to get past back in the fold and get the full team together. One of the things that you guys are doing with ties. I find very interesting and a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be as you're using him in that role to take moves and give the moves credibility and I said it last week on the show. I think that TASR is putting more credibility on certain guys moves than the guys are actually doing by giving the moves and the other guys are actually doing by selling the moves. Tasr took tash took Jake Hagar's chokehold and made it interesting by giving us the breakdown in the nuances of it. Tasr gave us Kenny's V. trigger and broke it down. That is an aspect of your show that we're not getting from any other wrestling product out there and for the die hard wrestling fans who stand on the mountain top and say that wrestling is a sport. Tasr is really bringing that sports like feel to Phnom. Sorry not to eighty. W So let me ask you this story. Whose idea was that. Is that something that has brought to the table? You thought of. Is that Tony Thing. No that's actually a a diy tasr with assistance from the judge. Jeff Jones. That was you know somebody that when everything went down was looking for things to do he was not looking for the vacation. He was not looking for shelter in place. He's he's kind of constantly moving so he. Beta tested these. And obviously you know the sports base presentation is still a huge part of of professional wrestling even if we do offer a buffet and different types of presentation that piece of it with a man trying to beat another man or woman trying to beat another woman that piece of it is incredibly significant and that was something passed it on himself. He Beta tested it I loved it. I know Tony. Kahn loved it. And I also know that guys and the girls when when they see their their piece of business Being talked about. That's a rub in itself. You get rubbed from a legend by like has but you also get an actual deep dive. You you're you're analyzing something And this is really unique. Nothing pro wrestling is is unique enough in its representation of actual wrestling but nothing is more shily to me than really bad. Shane wrestling or really bad. Pretend folks our wrestling and passes one of those guys that there's there's nothing pretend he knows the grips He knows the sports mindset it. Just really valuable thing that he brought to the table during this time and technique or something. That's going to stay cody Lance Archer. We had him on the show. And I mean just a great presence on your show for sure What did you think debut? And what do you think of the pairing with him? And Jake Roberts I been careful with You know my response in terms of I definitely think. Land is is a special The fact that we were a company that had a lot of light heavyweights and the next thing. You know we've got you know a hof division when it comes to war though Lucas or lands Chicken even You know you've got these a Mr Mr Brody. You've got these big horses all of a sudden land lance I I think is incredibly special. I think Jake Roberts is is an absolute genius But I still don't buy into the hype that is that is Lance Archer. I have a weird Inclination to kind of always you know. I don't know have a stiff upper lip when it comes to. Oh well I was in Japan. I must be good. Well you know I saw your match will spray and it was really great. But it's not like you know ten years of a body of work that supports that all sudden. You're the next big thing that said he's he's really run through everything that's been. Put an input in front of them and it. He's in a completely different type of wrestler for a w. So having him here is very important. I don't think you get out of the semifinals. Dustin I've said that I went on record and said it. Looks like it's going to be a double or nothing rematch. I don't think he's wrestled. Somebody like doesn't I think he's you know used to boy around these light heavyweights and that's not the case tonight. Cody one last one for me. I found I really enjoyed the video package that you opened up with last week on dynamite putting everybody over giving credibility to the tournament. But you said something within the body of your Promo that I found interesting and I don't I don't know if you're showing your hand a little bit or if you're reacting to some of the things that you hear out there you ask yourself. Am I getting too comfortable? Am I becoming a bit too scattered? Well I don't know. Are you getting too comfortable? And do you feel like you're getting to scattered with all of the different hats that you need to wear an eight? W to be fair. I don't know if I don't think I'll know if I'm too scattered until it hits me in the face But I it is a concern of mine because I'll give you an example brandy and I we don't have any children But when a w became thing it's like we inherited thirty to forty children if that makes any sense the locker room. A lot of us Look to us for their their directives. some of them look to us for advice and mentorship. And it's wonderful. But now that's what my day is spent doing communicating with. Everybody even somebody. Who's you know longstanding veteran in our industry we're talking about has earlier that's all. I do is Staring down craning my neck remotely looking at my phone Talking to members of our locker and that is where I get worried. And that's why I use the term scattered because I really want to make sure that going into any match especially a big match that I have done the work. That's a slogan you know and and that requires a great deal. I trained this the same way I would train for anything on a high level pro sports You know situation. So I don't know could be there I don't know and hopefully it doesn't hit me in the face but it is a concern of mine is time management. Do I have the ability to manage time and to manage a locker room in my capacity and I have great people with me to share that responsibility with and that's you know I won't know until I know well cody. Thank you so much for the time I really appreciate it. Semi-final matches I we got Lance Archer and Dustin Rhodes and of course cody and Darby Allen. And I'll make you this. Promise cody if you watched the First Police Academy movie which is on Netflix. They're all an ethics. But if you watch the First Police Academy movie I'll watch all three lord of the ring movies. They've you have nowhere screw you. You have nowhere no leverage to two parter with me to watch this Elise Academy movies. It's your that your own detriment again. You don't think you just think you're so safe in that chair next to bully but how bad especially in cancel culture how bad thing to say out loud. I haven't seen Lord of the rings just just top level first class first rate dumb ass stuff and I just. I'm so disappointed. I'm not ever going to watch the police academies anew that's on you but that's on you you should take the time to watch Lord of the Rings to watch the Hobbit to learn a little something to the office. You talk with me about it. You talk with others the parallels in real life and fantasy. There's never been a better time that you're telling me how you like. Steve Gutenberg and the Police Academy movies. Thank you so much cody. Good luck tonight my friend. Thank you bully so much. Dave you can kiss my ass but it open. I love you guys. Thank you tune in semi final. Love you guys thank you. Thanks for listening catches Monday through Saturday. I'm busted open from nine. Am To noon eastern on Sirius Xm by Nation Channel.

We looked up in the last time you came to see your show came to work was a a year and a half ago. It was I think March of two thousand a year and a half ago yeah well you know. I live far away like two blocks away. The the weather is really getting in the way it is those those snowbanks Elvis. You've been very busy. You've been getting married. You're on book tour so you're going to. You're going to do a conversation with our good friend. Zana's Scotto that's that's Wednesday at Barnes and Noble in Union Square thing Ding Ding Ding Ding. Lug Away Lug away. You GotTa do it on the books. Were also does your Fifteenth Book Fifteenth Cookbook Bobby Abby at home bobby at home. Guess what it's about and don't tell us what is the twist because each one of your cookbooks. It's not just a collection of recipes apiece out. There's a story behind always a focus. So what does the focus on this is the this is about the the food that I do cook at home and I cook ton at home. A lot of people ask me. What do I do when I'm trying to relax not working in the restaurants or cooking on TV and literally do the same thing. Which is cook? Oh complete. I took all the time because you cook so much at the at work you would want to cook. I love cooking at home. It's it's really the way I show my love to my friends and my family in fact I have invited to show up to my house in the Hamptons. Weekend's nonsense you well. We saw not less not last year so yes. I gotta be honest. Something happened something happened and there was a big wall between Bobby Flay and our show and I missed you missed you are good friendly. Schrager Heaven Brunch at your house in the Hamptons and he's like oh you should be here. I said well bobby. Flay doesn't call they tell you what are you want to know what it was very very rarely on this show does a seat open up around the table and then you hired baby hot sauce instead of Gandhi for that and I'm literally not over it but I've heard so many great things about her that I had to come in. I'm here to meet you. That's okay. We have a guest here to see you but we'll bring that will usher that guest in a moment oh no in another year. He forgot about this whole back to bobby at home. So these are the these issues you actually cook at home for your family for your friends just you and a lover but the thing is. I would think a porn star love to have sex on camera for money but when they get home. Do they have up sex anymore. I think they're tired of it yeah. I don't think so. Let's see Alice or something honestly. I never thought about it that way. Go home does a brain surgeon go. Oh home start operating on his friends. I get inspired by literally walking through the Union Square market. I'm like Oh. I'm GONNA take those tomatoes in that corner. I'M GONNA make dinner tonight because I ah I love cooking. I just it's just a different pace and also I get my house. I serve everything family style so it's really casual. Well Look I. I hi so I encourage everyone. I'm holding a book and we're not even on TV bobby at home. Look at you. You're becoming more handsome with Tom. I think so yeah my my daughter asked me.

She followed the clues at the company left behind for you to try to figure out the new secret flavor and she thinks it's either French toast or cinnamon toast crunch crunch. She did say that you need another package to confirm and I agree. It's always great detail her fat. I wish we'd come in here and visit them. Though she really is so fantasy Chrissy and of course John Legend's trailer has trailer things sessions. I love it. I Nick Cannon says something stupid when he talked to Oprah after marrying Mariah Carey and apparently he says Oprah hasn't forgotten he was hanging out with a with Howard stern and he said one of my favorite different movies is color purple and as soon as he's Oprah he said you told Harpo to beat me and if you notice the color purple.

When and all the incredible double incredible music he's been giving over the years in different ways and I think he was at our iheartradio music festival back in two thousand thirteen now he's everywhere and he'll be at Global Citizen Festival estival tomorrow. Please welcome our friend Adam Lambert wearing a chain. Hey as jewelry. That's I like that can take me for a walk. I'm sure it's happened before well boots. Thank you this deconstruct. He's starting to get before we get started. I gotta say one thing I was watching a your tribute to share at the Lincoln Sonoda Kennedy Center Honors. Did you hear his version of gives you goosebumps. Don't ruin your hair your hair per. It's me headphone. Hair styled quickly believe over the so so share is sitting up there watching him for first of all it share. I was like pissing pants. I was like chair so so one of our favorite songs share of belief or your earlier Ridler GonNa. Sing like that and make fun of how wall all this but listen to this arrangement. This was unbelievable play this. Oh I see okay so when you hear that. I don't think you hear what we hear no. I'm I'm really early hard on myself. I like pick it apart. I'm like I didn't hit that one part like I'm so it's like my blessing and my curse every artist says that because we've asked that because they always say the song is is never perfect no no but if the thing that keeps you pushing. Lake Lake if you're never satisfied economics you work harder. You know so. It's like that but I gotta ask this question and I want you to. We just brutally honest. I want and I want to hear yes. Have you ever hit a note and you actually freak yourself out because the moment was perfect. It was like Oh my God. I don't think that way. I freak myself out when I go oh. I had it wrong like I. I'm such a perfectionist. It's terrible but you know mm. Keep working hard. Okay okay. I don't get too comfortable which is a good thing. Would you like a bloody Mary. I'm GONNA pass morning. Yeah those look beautiful uncle Janis famous famous. He's he's been making these out at Cherry Grove on fire island for sixty four look beautiful these are these are the Non Jewish Bloody Marys obviously there's some pork in there uh-huh low pork in there and it was a Jewish pig laugh they pretty much you met him on fire island look. I I don't know where to start. Let's start with a global citizens festival. I know I'm bringing her album stage tomorrow. I love her. But do you want to telephone. WHO's bringing you out on the stage tomorrow. Am I allowed to announce it well. I have it written down public comment. Is that a surprise for like an aspirin listed. Eh Okay Yeah Romney's GonNa introduce US Malik. Yeah Yeah Yeah totally yeah. I hope so I hope so. Why is it important for you to be a part of Global Citizen Festival tomorrow. If you know about this organization it's unbelievable because instead of doing the typical thing where they take the prophets from the tickets and then they donate that to a charity. They actually encourage everybody to download. You have to earn your ticket. You have to download an APP. You have to take make a list of different actions for different incentives and that's how you earn your ticket so what it does is. It allows fans to get really involved. It's it's educational. It teaches you and what they're doing is. They're urging big major world governments with extra money to donate billions of dollars to these different causes. It's not just just the prophets of a concert. It's like big big money right yeah. It's amazing. Have you been before no. I haven't but I've heard about it. we're talking about Bohemian rhapsody that last that last scene where queen is on stage at live eighty eight. That's IT I mean I. It's just a billion people and maybe plus or minus if you I mean it's hundreds of thousands right. I'm excited insane. I'm saying I'm so excited so you're GONNA have. You're GONNA have your moment up there. Yeah incredible this weekend. I'll have to figure out what I'M GONNA wear. Oh here. He goes the most important part of my favorite thing Adams just did. It wasn't what he said is what he did. After that's exactly it was like my first question when they told us that we're going to be at the Academy Awards this last year. I hung up the phone. What what are they gonNA wear such a clean. It's like the first thing that runs through my head. That's okay some of the headlines of course Ferrall Alicia Keys Queen Adam Lambert one republic her. I'm kind of nervous bringing her lover over. I love it. I'm so honored to be part of this lineup some real great music. That's going to happen like freaked out to see or meet. I've met a lot a lot of these people. I haven't met her actually. I'd like to meet her have to meet her. It'd be good to see ferrall again. We work together on my two albums ago. We wrote some songs together so it'd be good to see him and and I love them republic. I Love Ryan Yeah. It's going to be great so you'll see him and her yeah. I haven't met Alicia keys before I like her too. So maybe that would be a cool introduction touching something yeah me trying to get dressed. What Super Bowl oh. Oh wow how cool with you and Queen Bee at Super Bowl. That'd be fun. Superpower Super Bowl extra guests S. two yeah J. Lo hit me up. I just found out in the movie Bohemian rhapsody which I loved. Adam is in the film. We're playing himself. That's not me I wouldn't do that. nope not at all. No I'm a trucker. It's a very league little tiny little cameos for a joke set the scene when he's at the rest stop when he calls Mary on the payphone and he's like talking to her and the trucker gets out of the truck and kind of cruises in before going into the men's room. That's me don't blink and we did that. You know it's all about like when you're if anybody knows cruising is like old school cruising. It's the second look uncle Johnny News. It's the look bag that's the one look and then you keep walking and then it's if you get that second. Look really we're in Janis. Don't blow with Liza Minnelli. He's he's been around. Hey Lady WanNa give them a whole eighty riding in your spirit animal. That's really really interesting about ankle Johnny. I'm glad you're I'm glad you could really officially meet him today. He has been Kabar tender and the gay bars on filing for sixty four sixty four summers. I love that he moved to New York City with Drag Queen and didn't understand what being gay gay was because that was in one thousand nine hundred eighty four right at nine hundred and sixty three wow so here we are in this year the fiftieth for stonewall uncle. Johnny is our national treasure treasure. I worked at stonewall before the right really near the night up. Yeah wow he was the right before the riots but but you know it's it's so important because of LGBTQ LGBTQ youth don't really understand how the road was paved for us. Yeah and I think you're Kinda Young Adam Lambert for saying that well now. You're you're still looking supple. It's the spackle I applied this morning. It's I think it's important to understand. I totally early agree. I think I think our history is very important and obviously in the eighties so many of our our elders are wiped out so it's a really interesting time because I think think we're sort of at a cultural apex again were part of the mainstream but it took a really long time to recover from the AIDS crisis and and now we're like we're learning about our culture and were building new culture. It's really beautiful. You know what Uncle Johnny tells stories about what they will go to the bars in New York City and they would put them in trucks and take them to be standing on the street three talking and there was no congregating homosexuals put you in jail but they could get arrested pitchy here. If he is ago and Ed what you want to like Queen sh he looks a little Freddie Mercury Johnny. Oh Daddy look at this down. Johnny Johnny Johnny was getting a lot of what your motto now Johnny. If you can get it up you can have in your okay. Let's get back on course downloaded your I love. I didn't know it was an EP at first this. This thing's only three ninety nine deal partner it is i. I decided to release valve in two halves and I'm calling it. SIBENIK EVOKE DOC VINYL field because a lot of it's very retro. I wanted to just kind of stretch out the whole thing. You know when you go to like a really Nice restaurant. They don't just throw everything in one place at one time you get your fear of appetizer your first quarter second quarter desert. It makes you more satisfied so in other words. You're not happy with the second half. Now I just WANNA. I just WanNa like I wanNA. I want you know stretch it out a little bit album edging like that. I like that got out album edging well. You know what I mean back. In the days of Queen it was an album and the album was it was the whole thing it was the production it was it and now you you can do like a lot of our friends. Do not even have an album release it. There's just no rules anymore. It's like yeah I like it. I think the flexibility is great. What was the first song you heard that made you pop into into action go. This is why I want to be in music. What do you remember the first song heard that just kind of was at a maybe not music. I don't know what song in particular but I know that like being at home growing up my my dad was a DJ in college and a total music lover and my mom's music over two and they had all this vinyl a lot a lot of it from the seventies and early eighties and that's what was playing all the time in the house and I think that kind of like you know through Osmosis Kinda like sunk in and that's like part of my DNA aim musically. Those are the first songs. I heard that's what made me understand. What music was and so actually on this project? I purposely said I WANNA do like sort of an album. My parents are going to love as well as you know my peers wow yeah like I wanted to reference these these great classics because I think they're timeless. They don't go out of style and and in doing that kind of music made it so. I didn't have to be anything that I was in. It just came naturally. When you told your parents I'm GONNA sing with clean and they freak out yeah. I mean I think when I did on the finale that was like a big deal and then as we started working together a couple of years later it was it was surreal for all of us. Yeah Yeah I remember. My Dad said like this is kind of cool. I have something to like really legit to brag about at work finally until then with the black fingernails now it makes sense all makes sense question because I like to. I love to ask this question. What Song was it from your past that maybe didn't get you into music but was there when you were going to the roughest time when you hear it now. You're like boom okay. That was my moment ooh. That's a good question. I don't know it's okay. I I grew up like like obsessed with Michael Jackson Madonna right that was like the those were my pop start. My current pop stars then. I just thought they were like the king and Queen Danielle had a crush on George Michael. I was so convinced he was going to be mine and then I found out he was not going to be the I re. I remember when faith was out. I remember hearing that on the radio. When it was out and like my mom would drive us my little brother and I would like we doing errands or something with mom and the song would be on and that and also in excess need you tonight and both of those run around the same time and and everytime in excess came on my mom would be like he so sexy XY and of course I'm young so I'm like what is that. What is she talking about yeah so now when I hear the song sexy not listening right now and she can't get all hot and bothered with our son on the radio. This is a sexy song. Hey you know what I'll tell you my story I walked into my brother's bedroom which I was not supposed to be an he had turntable in this beautiful sound system and and I pulled this album out of the jacket as I'd seen him do because I didn't really know how a record worked yeah put it on the thing on put the needle on and it was Bohemian rhapsody. Bam and I never really ever understood what being moved by music was until that song because that song is fifteen different songs in one totally opera. It's rockets. Qatar is its lyrics killed a man what the hell they're they're like so cryptic to how you remember the first time you heard when he being rhapsody. I I heard it in Wayne's world. I remember going to see the movie with my brother and my father and like being like what is this you know because I was. I was like a theater kid. I was doing a lot of musical so it it Kinda rang that bell for me because it was so operatic and I went home and I I asked my dad about it and he pulled out a queen album and remember seeing the picture Freddie on the cover with the band a and Glam with makeup and my silent and I was like Oh this guy and I might have something in common. He likes to play dress up like me. What does this mean what do you do you recall a time. You actually had headphones on. You're listening to Bohemian rhapsody from beginning to end and you you just really fell into it. I think a little later in life I started I think would I was a teenager. I started kind of getting into classic rock and real real besides just hearing it around the house but really diving in and researching and kind of discovering new artists and the Internet helped with that brand new you and yeah I think like hearing the Queen Songs the first time and also seeing him perform them live seeing them videos of him seeing like videos of Freddie like running around in a pair of little white shorts barefoot on stage like a wild man. I was like this guy's great the owned it. He was just such an original and I I see I'm I'm sure you're tired of hearing this but we see that in you and your performances so you know I love the fact that my fourteen year old loves it like to me. It's crazy like but that's why a youtube when I feel like the Internet has done to like he keeps listening to these artists that I never would have thought that he would even know that goes. Oh Ma listen to this. I'm like a new song song. I'm like but he loves one also the movie I think the movie like kind of brought out a lot of new fan when we were on tour this summer here in the United States it's like I was looking in the audience and it was way younger than it's ever been touring for eight years so you know we were doing just fine but the movie thrown things through the stratosphere. It's crazy. It's so interesting to hear all of you talking about you being so Rockin Glenn all of that because weirdly enough reintroduced me to motown when you were on American title and you did tracks of my tears by smokey Robinson Ontario and I was like let me go check out some more all about motown. I liked it before but I kind of thought it was like appearance Jason Rock and roll self gave me motown and I think that's the power of classic songs like there are John Ras artists out there that like will never never go out of style. That always sounds fresh. No matter what no matter what time it is no matter what year it is and that was the thing that inspired velvet is that. I just wanted to make music music that was sort of to the greats you know and that that didn't feel like in two years. It would sound dated velvet download it. It's only like three ninety nine fifteen working if we could go. It's the gateway to Lambert Global Citizens Festival tomorrow Mar.. I can't wait to watch you but I'M GONNA get out of the backstage.

Twenty four four seven all season long. Your body is the Bob transmitting across America Welcome to Friday's show. Let's see what's happened with everybody in a segment we call. What's the perhaps? Hey what's view. Let me ask you a question. What's the rules on face? I know my role. What are your roles on facetime ing someone someone? If you've never facetime them ever get to set up an appointment or do you just hit it. Hit Enroll I guess. I only faced with people that I normally facetime. What so I haven't I haven't done that in a while? I don't know that there is a role He said it up. Hey can you face time at this time. Not with this girl one time and then all of a sudden it home and I see on my phone and she's face timing me we've never facetime never even talked on the phone only a few times but I thought it was in bed on my computer now have shared on which is normal a mouth and we're close to my house really what you thought that little awkward I mean yeah I think so answered by the way a okay you're hitting up you'll get what ooh except nipples everything she just like big face timer. I didn't ask that question so based on what's happening here but it just wondered the general rule on the first facetime. Don't you have to set up an appointment time. You're like what stage do because I will call you know appointment it'd be like I don't even call on the phone I just it based on. What stage does that happen? Well we're like fourteen years then. FACETIME was around. We started talking. Jeez If you're dating I like you talk about it. You ask you like day one. She could ask you. Hey facetime you later something. Something that you're dating is that is that. Is that a weird thing. Yeah definitely always always ask I. I would never just randomly okay Simon Guy even when you had been at one time. Yeah no no no make sure on the same page. Some do space. I'm doing you only been once or twice and you never ever had a first facetime. We honest some guy did do that to me and after that I was kind of like Oh I feel weird. I don't WANNA go out. Yeah what is your the rule for girls that you've gone out with like windy. You start face timing with him. I admire her for just going at it I do. I was just weird but I just was like. When did she need I? I WANNA talk. That's it wasn't like urgent. She wanted to see your face. I guess I don't know nothing like that. She was somewhere and she was like hand. This place was cool. Thought it'd be you think. Yeah that's all that I was thinking about bringing to the show that happened last night. The end thank very much But we all on the same page. That was weird to say. She's interested but I would say that too but I'm not turned off by it. I was just a little weird by it. Now she shows up at my house unexpected unexpected. That's a different story. especially she didn't know where I live. That's really crazy are amy. What's up? Well how a special moment with my dad and I almost missed out on it because he wanted to. I was cooking dinner. And then all of a sudden he walked over. He's like I kind of want to make something for the kids. Like what about if I do cinnamon apples and my dad has been on a feeding tube for over a year so he hasn't tasted food or anything I mean except for like when he's doing his physical therapy they'll put mashed potatoes in his mouth or whatever but that's it and so he loves to Cook that's his love language. I almost like dad. You know I mean the kitchen. I'm cooking dinner. Like Doc. Just fine go away. Basically what I was thinking in my head just go watch football and then I thought you know I. This is probably something special for him in so I let him like cut up the apple and he went over and he did the whole thing and did coconut on cinnamon and sugar and made them like cinnamon apples on the stove. Top and they loved it. The kids loved it. I think think I could see that. It made my dad so happy that they loved it and I was like that's impressive. That's some skills. Because he doesn't use a recipe he doesn't measure anything any put milk in there and did all kinds of stuff and and they tasted so good and he couldn't even taste test it and so I just forget how amazing of a cookie as and that. I need to let them do that more. Because that's his love language annoyed throat cancer. Guess whatever be able to eat food again. We help sell his he goes up and down. It's really just that. He can't the parts of his throat that were cut out like he has to. Retrain train has body to swallow and so that is not naturally happening there. So he's having his physical therapy all the time and we're working on it so she his current therapist says she sees progress in that. Yes one day. Maybe he could. Did he cook for you a lot as a kid when you say love languages His his railway to show that he was thinking. Oh yes like he. That is what but he loves to do like cooking as his thing. A box avenue. I've got a question for you guys when you go to the Valet and you're getting your car and you're gonNA tip. Are you allowed to ask the valet person for change because the other night my wife and I are Karma Valet and all I have is a ten dollar bill well ten dollars a little steeper. Someone just go get my cars. I I wanted to ask them. Hey can I get seven back and my wife. You can't do that. That's so awkward. You don't ask the Valet Flavor Change. Just give them the ten. I'm like Whoa so I wanNA know is it. Okay to ask the valet for chain amy. I think it's okay. I'd probably ask I five back but I think it's fine. I'm giving like twenty before and you ask for the money back like in. The the great thing is they've got a lot of change so they should. It's no problem. I think they're eh. It's always okay to ask for change. It may feel awkward like your wife was like Ooh but really what the question is could you have afforded giving him really out of your heart seven extra bucks. Do you have are probably could've so it's on that line because maybe maybe midst you won't one dollar back right and you go. Is this going to affect me or him more by him getting it or me getting a back. That's a whole different conversation. Okay I see what you're saying that's like for you. It's not the guests. I think that's a valet. We all had jobs. We were volleying like not specifically valeting but working jobs where it was like. We're hustling two three four bucks at a time when I was waiting. Tables are getting tips to a maintenance on a golf course like you probably. You probably could have been like you know. I don't have change. Just keep it. But that's not the question. Yes you can ascertain changes the collection plate a church. If you aren't way wait awkward but all you go okay. Here's the reasoning along with twenty bucks and you only have ten together. We're GONNA hold on one zero. I'm not yeah I'm just saying I'm just saying amy would rather the church I get it but if you can only afford ten dollars. I don't think there's anything wrong if you listen to play. Go to go on a date at jerks saying making things up here judge and I'm on a date with you and you're taking change out of that quick you can't let go through. It can dig right but if it comes down to would you rather church have nothing or ten dollars. ARS SMART Call Church ten dollars. M My point is that's the most sensitive place to make change and I still think that's okay. If that's all you can do for you then you try to get there and you're like oh I didn't change. I asked my neighbour. Whatever the answer is you can always ask do? Ballet's get paid by the hour. Rely on tips. Well depends some boats. Some tips only Good but minimum wage. If they do I would say most tips by the way because I brought to their make some good money I I mean they make good money but if they made a really really good money people would be playing instead of working a business job always make change. That's a rule but if always you're gonNA affect someone's life a little more positive than it would hurt you in the negative try to lean toward that three bucks. Okay all right the. What's my eleven year old son? He loves movies and he loves to review movies so he's got a new movie that he reviewed today. We're reviewing classic from nineteen ninety-three. It's a rudy now. I've seen the movie but junior. You had not seen the movie quickly. What's it about? Well it's about this guy who wants to Notre Dame College football but he doesn't have the money the grades in the family doesn't even want to go. You can't do that. And but he really wants to go and he believes he can do it. Does he ever get to go own. Playful see out of the whole movie. What's the lesson you took from it? Well if you work really hard you can achieve. Your dream doesn't make if you WANNA go to Notre Dame and play football no not really out of five. Footballs what are you. Give this movie four and a half football good so you'd watch it again. Yeah Awesome love it. So he liked it eleven do love Rudy Rudy. So good by the way. It's such a great movie. Yeah it's so good but it's cool. He liked it. They're working class people. Also they do kind of have a little foul mouth that I've forgotten the movie a couple of years and is there a couple of things in there for eleven class people. Everything is kind of in there every. Yeah yeah I know but the way they talk to their brothers whatever they say like Gd and there and a lot of other stuff. That I wasn't ready for okay. Well good review. That's what's here's the bobby bones. Show podcast highlights segment of the day. Amy Are you feeling Christmasy yet. Yes even though. We're not thanksgiving. You feel kind of already Christmas mood. Yeah I love it here in this Thomas at Christmas song is called Christmas in the country. I'm GONNA play some of this for you right now. We on and all lanes fat. I want to see and crazy crafts where the trees in the worst the Christmas in the country. That's that's new. Thomas was on but I was thinking about favorite Christmas songs of all time. We go around the room here. Emmy your favorite Christmas Song of all time. Oh I've I've been jamming Mariah Carey. All I want for Christmas. This the one on the list Yes it's like. It's the first song I played to get the season going and like that was a few weeks ago and then during Christmas time I all begins in house and this is the song probably the gets played the most to this. You write this in like an hour with somebody else. Yup and then has made millions and millions of dollars. Because it's like the number one Christmas on. It's tough to doing original Christmas song. That's why Thomas and having a good one by the way Eddie and I have a new song coming out possibly next week so the registry. It's Christmas the first one ever heard right. Yeah it's really lunchbox what's your favorite Christmas Song. Time the Jackson Five. I saw mommy kissing. Santa Claus clause versions your favorite. And I guess my parents played it. A lot is a kid because my dad had a lot album or like records and he loved the song and he played this over and over and over again. So I guess it just stuck with me me minus a white Christmas Bing Crosby logo although my warmth of that like sound old record or whatever reminds me of just like it's cold outside and we're playing augurs well so I don't a couple of my favorites but minds white Christmas too but it's not that version. Oh okay mine's this version. The drifters White Christmas. Because in the Santa clause they played the song in home alone. This is one of the songs pick. I just like the feel of this white Christmas. All those guys good this one's good and then the Alvin and the chipmunks Christmas Song One Christmas time is here. I yeah so I listened to a podcast and talked about on the show. We're how they make Alvin and the chipmunks monks how do these these voices so don't they play the music fast and talk nor do they play the music. Slow right help him. Have you heard onto the opposite of what you would think they sing really slow. Speed it up into Natapei because says if they were to do it like normal talking and then speed up there would also be fast. That's right so they they talk real slow Sollozzo when they do speed it up it matches amusing normally Yeah Morgan number two. What is yours? Yeah it's Michael Boublil. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas to look a a lot like through a match. I'm Michael Boob Way. I don't know what what did I liked. Everything he thinks is good I mean. Didn't you have a Michael Boob lace on your wedding. Yes we dance to home thing that one thing that one to me. We'll now like in my head. It's hard to home. I on an airplane fly. Let's all your head right now. It's such a good song though especially because my husband's a pilot and we spend a lot of time apart so the message. The song really fits US till Christmas party that we already had which was before Thanksgiving I was talking to Amy's husband Speaking to them about flying and about pilots and he was like yeah pilots. They die early because of all the sitting in the cockpit radiation. They're getting and their body always trialing different time zones back and forth and he said something interesting is that pilots like to go north and south instead of east to West and West to east because their bodies he's not getting out of sync with the hours so thinking fly up and down America. That's a win for them. I never thought about that in the same time zone. Basically definitely it helps. Does he talk pilot talk with all the time now. I mean I guess it. Just pick up on it over time. But there's things yeah like he talks about this Arcadian rhythm and how it gets all messed up and how the radiation creation is worse the higher up they are in the sky. Like there's things like pilot that's what it was the radiation it was over the ozone layer and then those layers blocking us from from radiation. Yeah so there's things that that pilots have to deal with in life that leads them to maybe an earlier death and I'm like well you can glad you in scary. You know because I also know pilot like his dad is older is at least pass sixty five and he was a pilot for for a long time. So got that going. I mean I can't say that I know a lot of older pilots that maybe have you always wanted to learn to play an instrument went. Maybe you'll even tried at some point but gave up because you felt lessons.

You can't sneeze. You can't cough so for months. He shut down everything and didn't say a word for three weeks so it didn't anybody anybody at a pilot for a while. I did ended up being like just mucus in my throat. Not a Paul. And then that'd be an allergy. Yeah Irvine's blown his voice out with Vala and Ed the number two what do you love. She loves food she talks about. We were my house the other night and I was eating like to crackers and I was like I can't I can't do all the carbs to crackers and I'm already feeling guilty right. I'm like in Morgan mature because everybody else kind of has a date date or wife or a husband and so we're on a solo over on the side just hanging out and I was like how do you because she just eating carbs like crazy Mike. How do you carbs and not blow up and she and what did you say I I? Oh I think my body's like accustomed to that because I've never eaten meat so like I'm not full on me or anything in carbs are kind of always been that supplement for me so long just kind of adjusted to it. I've I've been waking up eating crackers by the way every day for the past three days because he's having interest there. It's time for food world though with Morgan number. Two time for for food with Morgan number two. I have the most hated Thanksgiving dishes. Five of them most hated hated. Yeah Okay Black Peace Now. Is that the gross things. No their common items okay drum roll please. Number five on the most hated Thanksgiving dish rush tied our Turkey and Pumpkin Pie. What are they because there are so prevalent that just enough people don't like them because they're just everybody? Nobody has them. That sounds ridiculous this polls already too but all right number four sweet potatoes no allergic. I haven't the blood allergy test. I still eat some superior laboratory for me like number three stuffing what talk to Americans like China United now okay number two green bean casserole right fantastic casting number number one and number one most hated Thanksgiving item is cranberry sauce. I oh love cranberry sauce zoo. Yeah it's like dessert but it's a vegetable like it on your Turkey elegant everywhere. I can eat spoon really. You guys aren't like that. Let me say this about Morgan. Number twos food world for seconds. She did this food world in real life. The Nettie mentioned it with these Ritz crackers dipped in chocolate. And would you give them like two hundred five and gave him at three out of ten three out of your hair so good the Ritz which by the way are great pound could be the best cracker chop which by the way is a great along great together? Everything was stimulated in me. Same name how did you get eight out of ten. Yeah I just The fudge wasn't like high quality for me so I was like I did. Did you do a lot of chocolate.

I'm up in arms. Yeah losing credibility one time. Thank you Morgan number. Two that's food world there. It is dead walls. Food World with Morgan number. Two Num- now bowel Gotcha Nashville. Hollywood Morgan number two thirty seven skinny. The American music awards are this Sunday. Thomas Rhett Shania Twain. We'll be performing forming Dannon. J. will also be presenting it all goes down on. ABC At eight seven central. Little Big town shared a new song from their upcoming album. It's called sugarcoat take uh-huh now dean has a new album out today. It's called nine and features sixteen songs. Here's his song we back. That's your skin. It's time I'm for the good news. A nonprofit partnered itself with an Indiana School district to make sure kids have enough to eat L. Community schools in the northern part of Indiana. So how much food they had left each week. They also notice. Some of their students may be without food on the weekends when they go home from school. So the issue partnered with the leftovers seemed like well when you do something about this because we got the extra food. We've got kids who need the extra food. We just don't have like a way to get it together and so that's where cultivate culinary. A South Bend based nonprofit stepped opted and they made a special way to get the foods to the people instead of wasting. Because you know there's food law food rules they have to buy. They rescued food because they're ere considered a legit like charity and then they repackage and create frozen meals and redistributed. Those in need to that is pretty cool. It's it's just a good idea because so much food goes away and they can't just put it out people to eat because of all the rules about what you can do with food so I thought that was great. Want want to share with you guys. That's what it's all about. That was telling me something good show. This story comes from Warren Ohio. How A man was watching America's got talent with his family when he was like? You know what I think I'm GONNA try out for that show. And his brother goes dude. You're not good enough to be on America's got talent Aland. So what's he do attack. His brother headlocked starts punching him at least had to be called and he said I would kill them. What then I really wouldn't have been on America's got talent? Oh wow dream jeopardize that good for him. He knows what's important you want to go for the grounders fine but it just kind of gets in the way our boneheads story Russia. Amy's pile of stories fun fact Friday right okay so space smells like do you know what space smells like. No no seared steak. That's what astronaut say they describe it as either hot metal or searing steak and that smell actually stays with them and hangs around with him for a while and it's all they can smell. Smells like seared state smells good. What's eared steak grill in the state? Oh that's that's what it is. Yeah I'm Jerry. Maguire only made five point five million dollars during its fourth week in theaters in January of nineteen ninety seven and it was still the number one movie. No other movie has ever been number one at a box office with that low of money coming in only the million dollars. That's kind of a weird tidal title. The whole to hold. Yeah we were number one. Nothing else Jerry. Maguire good fourth week to a fourteen movies. Don't make that much. The thing is we're just wasn't another movie. That was bigger than that. What else you got some Thanksgiving ones so the first macy's Thanksgiving Day parade went down with if Real Zoo animals from central park and it was in nineteen twenty four and they had monkeys and bears and camels and elephants. Obviously now we have the traditional balloon loon characters but way back when it started real animals. And then Benjamin Franklin he actually wrote a letter to his daughter saying that he was Kinda bombed at the bald. Eagle Eagle was chosen to represent the United States as the official animal. He wishes that had been the Turkey. The Turkey is a much more respectable bird in a very formal the letter written to his daughter and then speaking turkeys the tribe toughen or whatever that's in the chemical again. Let me just make fun of people who mispronounce things because mispronouncing it because only read it. Although you've probably heard that if you got a minute okay well how do you how how do you know it so well Tripton or whatever. It's you know what they say. That's in Turkey that makes you tired and after you eat it you just want to lay down and take a nap watch. Football will know. It's because you've over eaten like that's just sit on Thanksgiving. You have way too much food period and your body goes into shutdown mode and sleep gets promoted. So that's why that's happening and I need to tell this to my husband because he's a pilot and sometimes he would have to pack a lunch or whatever and he would never want to pack a Turkey Sandwich or anything because he's like can't guitar a bomb flying but now we like that's a myth not true telling it wasn't fun fact Friday so obviously been leaving as his life long time all the Turkey advantages. You want while you're flying as long as you don't overeat and then The Victoria's secret fashion show it's being scrapped. It's done by because not not that I care Well but I kind of a shocked but why well so they just say that last year's taping or whatever was the lowest rated Ever okay well that makes sense then and it's people see it as sexist and anti feminist and there's just been a lot around that it all comes sounded right no ratings L.. All the beginning is it. Got No ratings. If it's not making money then they're gonNA cut it. Yeah Victoria secret says that they are going to try to evolve. The brand's marketing getting. We don't know exactly what that means. But part of that is getting rid of the fashion show because it brought them no money and rating. But I mean to me something even though I didn't really watch it it's still something iconic to me but I thought man. How long has this been around so I looked it up and it started in two thousand and one so that yeah I kind of whatever reason in my brain I saw it as like? Oh my gosh. This is ending affiliates and going on forever but thousand one all right there you go. I'm amy that's my pile. That was amy's pile of stores.

Tamie I WANNA share the story about this eight year. Old boy named Tyler stallings. Who is helping out homeless the veterans by making them hero bags and I hope that it just inspires others to maybe make little kits for homeless especially with the winter approaching an inside his hero bags because he thinks thinks all veterans are heroes includes a hat gloves blanket lip vom a sweater toothbrushes and toothpaste soap and all like bundled up so he can hand him? Mounteney gives them to various organizations like he collects the stuff on his own. He's been doing this since he was four years old by the way to the last four years. He's been able to help close to three thousand veterans and raise a lot of money in the process as well and you just collect all builds the bags himself and then distribute them to shelters in different organizations that are reaching the homeless fantastic love. That that's what it's all about right. There was telling me something good. I bet bound show from Nashville in Hollywood and Morgan number two thirty seven skinny and the American music awards awards are this Sunday. Thomas Rhett Inch Twain. We'll be performing plus Dan Shea. All be presenting in an all goes down. ABC Eight seven central. WHO's hosting that? Do we know social night show. I can look it up. I'm always curious. Little Big town shared a new song from their upcoming album. It's called sugarcoat. The Dow with the basic written by me. It does sound like that or she can do all that stuff but adult. What else in? Jason Aldean has a new album out. Today it's called nine and features sixteen songs. Here's his song we back we mystique again blasted among almost like my daddy. I'm Guinevere too skinny. Your body and my transmitting talk about it. Let's get Thanksgiving joke. Amy is standing by over there. Hit hit morning corning. What does it disappointed Mama Turkey? Tell her kids. What's disappointing mom? Tom Turkey teller. Kids if your father could see you now he'd be turning over in his gravy definitely highlighting all the jokes gravy. Now Yeah I mean on the bobby bones show now it was thinking about you. We were together a couple nights ago at a charity event. Yep We're talking and unless somebody knows it's you. I don't think people would see you and go that's not in the big Rockstar. Yeah it's well it's it's the beauty of the cowboy hat man. You know what I mean. It's like That's what everybody kind of see so when I go out to something like that. I don't think I had anything on the other night and So yeah it's a completely different look Kinda slot under the radar or sometimes I was thinking about it because you know we're they're talking and I was like I wonder if Jason Ever has to go somewhere and you give them your Id. And they're like now is that that's not you. I mean I feel like it's happened occasionally You know it's funny though anymore. It's almost like if they see me and think they recognize me they look over and they see in my wife and they're like hold on okay. I think that's it that's definitely hit. Because that's you know what I mean. So she thinks she draws more attention than I do a lot of times. Just people noticing noticing her and then they kind of put it all together but if you go through a starbucks cover you know what I mean. What you say Jason Like starbucks walking in all cool and they're not they don't turn when you're so Bam you gotta roll with like Chuck or something like that Bobby all right Jason. ALDEAN's here new record out today. Yeah Man I'm excited it's You know anytime these albums came out. It's we spend so much time working on them. And and and then you know this long gap in between the time that you finish him and the time they finally come out and play them for all your friends and family and you know they typically tell you how great it is but then you like a real opinion so you kind of have to say that because their friends and family so you know. It's exciting exciting. When the album comes out man you get some honest feedback and and that's a big day for sixteen songs? Yeah you always do basically double albums I put it on one one record. Well my theory on that is just always. If we're GONNA wait in a year and a half or two years to put out an album you know I want it to be worth the wait when it finally comes out and you wait for if you have a favorite artist and you wait for a year and a half two years and then they put out an album that's got ten zones on I don't know I would just feel like a little cheated with it so So we just try to usually fifteen was kind of our norm like that was us that we did. And then on this record we had sixteen and I wasn't really willing to cut one of them off so we just tacked it onto the album. Made it sixteen. Jason Aldean's here. I'm GONNA play a little bit of tattoos and Tequila. You get the record turn it on. This is first of all. We're going to hear here. So what what is it that you're looking for when you find songs that you like. Is there something specific when you're like all right. This is what I'm looking for. I don't know like what I think for me. It's a combination combination. I mean obviously it's the you know. It's it's lyric stuff. It's you know I just want to feel like it's something believable you know. That's really the main thing something. That's believable coming from me so Lyric obviously has a has a lot to do with that Melody Melody Wild things that that I like things that I'm good at facing and what what's kind of in my sweet spot And you know I don't know man just something that I feel. I feel like it's an artist you know. It's like when a fans driving in their car driving to work and they hear a brand new song for the first time and they just kind of have that immediate attraction to the song. Did you hear that new song. I love it and it's kind of the same with us. You know we hear these songs. It's a hear him once and I'll just kind of know you know it's just like man that's I got I got to cut that and so You know I don't know it's just kind of a combination of a lot of things I think for me. You ever have a song that comes to you and you're like wow that's got to cut this immediately. Yeah you know there was Thomas almost read sent me one probably. I don't know a month or so ago. And he was like man. We just wrote this song on the road this weekend. You're the first person I've thought of and see sent it to me and I was like Yeah I love it. I just finished my album. I said Hey I just finished my record but this'll be one of the first things I cut for the next record. If if we you know get it and then he called me back a couple of days later said well I think somebody else is GonNa cut it. Why would you ever send me as long? There's may also is going to cut but there are songs like that man that come in that you're just like you know I mean we back was a song that we kind of were missing that piece of the album. And and Yeah and Tyler Hubbard called me up one day and just said man we want to go in and write something for your record and Him The guys the Warren Brothers One and Dan and and They wrote this thing Senate to me a couple of days later and it was just like man. That's exactly what we the the piece we're missing. You know for the album and I think we went in probably two who days after that and and cut and Brantley Brantley. Gilbert sent me a song that I was on the way to the studio. We we had our songs we were going to cut that day on the way in He sent me a song and I'll listen to it and I got to the studio and so my producer. I'm like all right. We're not going to cut this one. We're going to get this one now. I switch it up. It was like the day of going in the studio so So you know it happens sometimes like that for sure on the bobby bones show now Jason L. Team Studio new albums out today called nine Thanksgiving's coming what are you going to do I think this year probably go to my sister's house. I think we're doing Thanksgiving her house. Typically we you do it at our house but We're in the process of building our house so We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have at her house this year I think and and it's it's great. We we only live about ten minutes down the street so perfect. If you hire somebody to come and build a house they do the same thing to you. They would do to me where they're going to be about an extra fifteen hundred bucks. Probably Ah no actually the guy. That's building our house is is a friend of mine. Who has done some stuff for he stuff with? He built my sister's house. He built an add on that. We did my last house and so He's he's turned out to be a really good friend of ours and and so he's he's out there doing so thing. I like about it as we move in. If something's draw you know getting back he'll come back over and fix it so but I would like to think no they don't do that but you know what's up with the Eldeen gene room all your trophies You haven't one of those when you draw the plans. I this is my trophy the trophy room. Well we imagine that's how you're talking to your house here please. I don't really have a trophy room. I you know in the last house. We built that the bowling alley the two lane bowling alley and we can copy that and and for doing it at the new house to. And that's Kinda my hang out you know but like speaking of Thanksgiving. That's where we do that stuff. It's kind of out. That's you know separate from the House and and So that's kind of weird like all plaques and all those kind of things go and and So I don't know I guess it's kind of a room the news the bowling alley enough because I will get a bowling alley but I'm not rich but if I if bowling alley like I had a pool table before I got on it and I was like three times when I'm done. The Seattle have a pool table. Because I did the same thing I had a pool table. Never played it never played you. Use the bowling alley all the time. Are you a good bowler. I'm decent three hundred. Three hundred. Never hit three hundred to you know to thirty two million kind of hit him with a really no idea what it's thirty means anything I figure or anything over two hundred pretty good so if you were to get a three hundred and no one was there to watch you in your own house bowling alley. Would you share with anyone. Say Take Picture. Put It on the Graham. Believe you well see back in your own bowling alley score like at the the real bowling alley or it's the real deal we had actually actually Brunswick came in and did all the you know the scoring systems and everything. So it's legit you have bumpers. Yeah you the only thing I don't have is the like for the kids. Kids were like you put the ball on the big metal thing and push it down the ramp. I don't have the ramp. That's the only thing we don't have. You got a little to make Frito pies up there you go up and you squirt squirted. You don't have that Nobel work on our just for you. All Right Jason. ALDEAN's here got new record called nine. You guys know the scores thing snack bar. You'll get there one day. We'll see when you get to record like twelve then. Then maybe you can get you one of those The significance of the nine So non was just. It was my baseball eastbound member growing up. It was always my lucky number and I remember George Strait had an album called number seven back in the day and I just I thought man maybe if I make non records call it number nine or something like that and and It just seemed like so far down the road you know and then all the sudden I looked up and cut the ninth record. You know so It was just a it was kind of always my lucky number just the number. I wore playing sports and and I'll I'll get to make the ninth record wants You know and the nine strike because we back is that anything that is happening. I'd like to say that you know we thought of that but I don't think we did. Somebody brought it up to me yesterday and I think that's the first time I heard it but you know I could could. I don't know maybe I'm not that creative. But that's that's a good move on. Our part here is did come out on on September ninth so that was not not just rolling that that was something we planned Keep it small town. Here's one of the new tracks from Jason Aldean. Today bag burden move. Hello how long did you record that one. I would say maybe five six months ago probably how really yeah Maury Mauri Wahlen was one of the code writers on that Song and and They send it to us. And and you know Morgan. Great Singer Man. I I really like his voice a lot in The track he did on it was really cool. And so that was one of those that you know I heard and sounded like candy. You know what I mean it just. It's really good so but It's that we probably cut. That would probably get the vocal on that one. I'd say probably five six months ago when you get it while you get a fully produced up everything but the vocal and you just sit with them practice for awhile or no. No I mean not you know because when we get the you mean after we track it or the bengals an attraction lays down all the instrumental they ever do. So I'll go in and track everything with the man and then once we get the track you know out they'll send it to me and and And I'll just kind of live with my car until till we go in to do the vocal which sometimes could it'd be the next week or sometimes could be a month later. You know so just kind of depends but yeah. Do you ever have a song that you get. And you're like I don't know if this is for me and you decide not to to cut it and then somebody cuts into the big hit. Yeah Luke Bryan had one of those it was The Girl Komo speakers go boo boo that song. Whatever it is and Somebody pitches me and I was listening to it on on a plane. Ride one time and it's one of those days Israel just kinda tired and kind of halfway paying attention and and just kind of skip past it you know and it must have been looking for something like in particular like I don't know if we were looking for tempos tempos or what but I was just kind of like trying to find them. It didn't think much about it and And then Luke played me as album. Yeah what could have been allocated. I'm also I'm also firm believer. That songs found that the home they're supposed to find You know figuring tractor tractor Jayco and passed on it you know. and which is how I ended up with it and you know so it just it just works that way sometimes and you know Jake have had as big a hit on that as we. We did probably not you know. I probably wouldn't have as big a hit on on Luke's thing as he did some you. Dad taught you to play guitar. Yeah he taught me the basics you know he he He knew how to play will enough to play country music. You know three chords but He knew the basics and kind of taught me that and and I he he promised me that if If if I learned to play he would buy me a Nice Guitar. So the Atari bought me wouldn't stay in tune I would play one song. Have to retune song read to and You know he just said man if you learned to play. I'll get itching nice. Guitar will this was like at the start of the summer. And by the end of the summer I was showing him how to play stuff so couple months in you know I. I was playing better than him already in and and And he got a guitar and I actually had that guitar on the road for for longtime and finally retired off the road because I was scared getting a little older now scared. Something's going to happen to it so it's It's it's it's retired from the road now but I still got it and your parents weren't musicians. They were government they worked for the government. Yes so my dad was Retired Air Force And then mom she worked for the government doing like Like payrolls and stuff like money and So Yeah you know my dad. He he had a band you know him and his buddies that would come over and sit the living room and jam a little bit you know and I would sit in their sing with them. A little bit those kind of things but it's They weren't like musicians got paid. If that's what you mean Jason Aldean's here with US got a new record nine out today. I wonder Jason if you're partier. Somebody's house do people just expect for you to play. If there's a guitar around the line you into I think it'll give them a song or two. Jason Friends are the worst. The my friends were like especially Like the buck commander guys when we go to to like deer hunting camp or whatever and it's me and Luke's where they are tyler far now we've kind of pulled him into too but you know that's they're the worst because they're like they want you to sing and then play this song and then you're done with that. When play this song? They just you become like a jukebox. At that point you know what I mean so But yeah I mean in in for us. What's funny is I used to play a million songs like I used to Could play all kinds of stuff and now for so many years. The only really the songs that I play you know so then then I kind of feel like man I I feel weird. Play my own stuff puts you in a weird spot and What do you think a lot of your songs you know so? It's kind of one of those things things but You know and I have to really thinking man. What what songs do I remember how to play? It's been so long so it's different now. You ever have proposals at your show. If I'm GonNa hit Ya but let me pose show. Yeah how you feel about those it depends you know I mean there's some times when you're trying to play his show and somebody's like trying to get Tinton the whole time you're trying to play and it's it's a little distracting Especially when you don't know what they want you know what I mean. It's like you're you can't stop. The Zongo was pro. What's what's wrong you know what I mean so but sometimes I it's if we know ahead of time where I can kind of set it up or something You No it it works out. Better we had one thing last year. Maybe that We do like little. VIP show before the regular show every night and and You Guy wanted to propose and he kind of got my attention and so we kinda made a thing out of it. If I know what's going on it's easier for me to help him out you know so I don't know just kind of depends like that. Sometimes like when you're in the middle of a show you know you're in the middle of like your your rock part of the show where everything's groove and then it's like it's hard to stop the show. Go all right. I'm doc Johnny. What's ask your question Jason Aldean's here? He came in today's got new record out today called nine. We played we back. Everybody goes uh-huh stream it downloaded. How getting music here takes up more closet? Space you or your wife My wife getting me we My closets like in in this house. We're we're in right now. I have like one strip. That's about six feet long. It's that's about it shoot. No I need a little bit more than that. She got so many shoes man. It's crazy so cashew lines. She does so and they've been sending them by the dump truck. Oh close to our house right sue. So she Right now they're a lot of them up. Most of my shoes right now are in a box in the attic. Because I don't have any place to put them. I got like the you know like my my a rig stuff to stuff that we're like a lot. It's their everything else. I got like two boxes of stuff in the attic. You don't have any kids. Yes Bobby. I'm officially Outta the game. Like are you bit medically out of the game or just in your heart your head all of it. Well more just I just I'm done. I'm out physically slightly snip. SNIP HAT EH. There's ways around okay. Is that public. Yeah you can get a reverse. I am L. O.. He was acting like it's not a reset like it's just like on a Friday and just the process. Is that news that you bet you bet to me. Is that out there. I guess it's let me news. Jason boy you're on. Yeah it's pretty wild. They definitely lost the coin. Flip on that one but and the both of them navy to she's you know looking more and more like what like Memphis oh But it's cool. I really enjoy having you know the little is there and you know my my kids are sixteen. Twelve Memphis is about to be too So there was a ten year gap there for me and and But it's it's so much fun having having little ones around again and keeps you keeps you young man. So it's it's fun. Are Jason Audience here about to let you go. I'm always intrigued by the amount of PYRO. They a US. There's a lot of explosions. You ever actually walked up one of those little close. Oh Yeah and and before you tell me the story. I needed to know the process. Because it seems like I would be hypersensitive to where they're blowing up if there's some training like practice maneuvers around that stuff you know the closest call I've ever had was I think we're doing maybe I'd be doing like an Iheart show out in Austin or something and I was walking on stage and so it wasn't really are setup but on the side of the stage they had. I'd like these little these little rocket things that went up and one went up and kind of like brushed the edge of my cowboy and I mean it I blotted me. I couldn't see and for a second and That was the closest call ever had just because I felt like it almost hit me in the face and but it wasn't really are gear. was you know it was our hearts. trix no But typically man I I you know when it was when it's our stage you kind of know what's going own and We had these sparkler things that would come down. You know at the end of the show like the grand finale for the show and That was always a thing where I would mess up. Sometimes Tom Stand where the sparkles are coming down and they get down on your shirt and like in your collar Bernie so that was fun so yeah after after the burden down to where we started to reevaluate one final question here. What piece of advice from an artist earlier career did you take? Hey can get and you still can't remember In Oh man I learned a lot from From man all those guys really you know I mean. I was just kind of a student so anybody ever pull you aside like. Hey Jason we see things are blowing up for you because for you as you hit hard a rapid ascent. Yeah I think you know McGraw Paul is one of those guys that kind of you know had been there done that and and we were out towards him up. I think it was probably an away nine and and things were kind of starting take off a little bit and you know and and you know just sitting around. I used to play basketball him all the time. And and You know talk and just those is guys just telling you like some of the pitfalls to watch out for and you know and how to just go about your business you know. I think the biggest thing was that this you know your career is like your career and it's you got a lot of people that that you know May WanNa tell you to do this and do that but ultimately like at some point you're the boss and it's up to you to kind of steer the ship where you want to go and I think that was probably some of the best advice I got. And if you're flipping it like who do you grab and go. Hey let me let me lead you a little bit here if you need it Kane. Gene came Brown You know guys like that. I mean I I've Had A lot of talks with him just over the years he was so new. You know when he came out really hadn't played live a whole lot and he kinda got thrown into all this stuff and blew up pretty quick too so he was one You Know Luke combs as a guy that's called and asked some questions on some things things and he's you know because he kind of blew up quick to and You know so. I'm all these guys that have been out on tour with me man. You know anytime you guys need to talk about anything. I'm always always. You're so right with that will encourage you to check out Jason's new album nine got a lot of songs on there. Also lesson. If there's one place Morgan number two loves to go. It's Jason Aldean's downtown Tab. That's her place and I don't go many places except for what we're going to go so it's kind of my place to go top level. They play genuine pony. I grind horror. You've is your town. We should come about all that you know. We did so but looking at us. Open the steakhouse here. Too just opened here a couple of weeks ago the eat three and and that's down here Hillsboro village but So we're we're trying to take over the old restaurant market here in Nashville. But it's it's good luke wearing he showed up in all black and he had a big blackout jump party. Yeah and he shaved his beard off too. I didn't know if he was going for something I don't I know maybe he's going to look like John Party. I don't know what was going on when he got out of the car. I'm like what just happened right now. You thought the same thing right. I don't have the hat and you're wearing a cowboy hat this completely off here but it was fun. We had a good time. And you know we've been working on that restaurant for a long time so to finally have it up and running it's It's it's it's great and food's great zoos so check check that one out too.

Welcome to what I wear when production of Glamour and iheartradio. I'm your host Perry Santon each week. I'm sitting down with a woman. I find fascinating to talk about what she wore during a pivotal moment in her life. I'm Elson Roman and this is what I wore when I interviewed you ask. Hey this tiffany theissen. I'm Zoey Deutch. I'm Amanda I'm Erin Andrews. Hey there I'm Bellamy young and today I'm going to talk about what I wore. An condition for scandal learn. How style has shaped the lives of these interesting women and how it's probably shaped yours even more than you? Now we're using the power of style. Tell the stories. You haven't heard listen to what I were went on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcasts. The story last night or this doctor. He's on a plane. Just chilling going from destination to be for Thursday. This older guy the guy starts to go. Oh my stomach is killing me. And so they're kind of gathering around him and I'm like Oh something's wrong doctor doctor and they're flying to New York and so a doctor's like yeah that's me I'm here and so he goes up and determines that there has been a bunch of urine trapped trapped in the guys bladder but he couldn't use the bathroom and since flying over the ocean to New York they could not land the plane so what he did this doctor that is he goes down and and he uses the materials in the airplane. An oxygen mask a syringe needle straws from milk boxes and tape. I mean I'll say macgyver. A lot of kids. Yeah No macgyver and macgyver figure out how to save the world just you know with a pencil. Yeah and so. He's trying to get the urine out of this guy's bladder her and he can't get it out so he takes a strong as the suck it out for hours Lewitt and they have it all on video. That's super it. Kind not say. The guy's life by the eighty nine. It would've been a ruptured right. So the next thirty seven minutes he had to suck a unanimous bladder and spit into an empty wine bottle rolling glass quote if we had not dealt with a situation the patient's life would have been at risk. It was an emergency situation. I couldn't figure any other way. That's crazy the needle the to get it out. The syringe wasn't long enough to get into it so the needle went into the bladder. That's what they wanted for but they had us a straw because it wasn't it wasn't long enough to get in right. Okay so the guy who is dying pain maybe woulda died because his bladder was going to erupt was saved by the doctor on the plane. Smart enough to give me a straw. Give me this any went down and started. It's sucking all of it out and did it for almost an hour. That's crew anyone ever see a like an accidental hero. You know I mean we see police officers and military members all the time but I mean here but something where it's not supposed to happen and then all of a sudden it's like Whoa. We can't believe that just happened and if so you can call us. I'd like to talk talk to you. Eight seven seven seventy seven bobby but that story was nuts.

Hey Bobby I'm I'm the one that that's fifty dollars on your last year one and I was just what your thoughts are Nashville has been great about Your rallying rallying together and getting everybody to vote for Lorena and I've been boating but what. I worried that she's a ton of votes and it's GonNa come down to a- and because of the new judging system they might Not Vote for her. Because of your influence. What do you think about that I? Yeah well I wanted to win but I hope they don't do that while also dancing with the stars Monday night I'll be there. It's the finale of the show to new to the show. I won last year. And you're thinking because we raise such a you know had such a time over there. They don't want Lorne to win. Because it'll be two in a row right. Yeah I don't I don't know how it's GonNa end and I don't think they're gonNA vote anybody off. I think he's only voted a winner so I don't think the judges get to eliminate anyone. Does that make sense judges. We'll get to pick they. I guess they could influence the scorn. Dance a little bit But I think she's going to do fine. All I worry about is everybody else's such they're all trained dancers and Lawrence never danced before the show So I talked with Laura that was like he just used that spot when they're interviewing you. That's your spots. That's where they can't control you so we'll see how it turns out. I know we'll all over her. We'll all watch Monday. And I don't think there's a conspiracy to get lauren though. She's just to lovable person. And also the judges are also good folks even off that show even Lynn. The you know the Bobby Really Nice Guy. So I think there's a conspiracy against Lauren. I just don't know how. What the is that the person with the most votes or are they going to come down to two when they exit the winter? No I won't be that it'll be the Dan scores and votes. It'd be a mix of those two. Yeah that's a good appreciate that. Yeah all right all right thank you. Everyone remember Monday. Vote for Lauren. Camp Monday Edmund. One month during the day but Monday night while the shows on you. Let's go to Kristen in Virginia. WHO's on hit KRISTA? And you're on the bobby bones show. What's happening video morning morning? I would just call him bobby In regards to your conversation you just had a bit ago on the radio about Your for Saudi your mouth. Swelling and if allergies can develop at any time throughout your life throat in the side of my tongue all started swelling calling up. And it's mostly gone down as of now but I never had anything happen like that before. Well it myself And have a large scope of allergies. I'm allergic to a large goes eight different dogs cats feathers DOC would So carry at depends around with me constantly And I just I heard your conversation and just wanted to let you know that. According to my allergist Those allergies can develop at any point in time in your life he Had actually selfish. The majority Jordan has life and went out to dinner one evening and had shellfish and went into cardiac arrest. So I don't know what to eight. I do have an pen. They send me with though. I don't carry it around ever. But it was for when they did the allergy test back and they started all this stuff in my back and they're like oh you're allergic to everything. Here's a pen. And so but I don't tell you with me. Maybe you should know what pocket Ebony happy to see me on that all time uh-huh again. I had a purse or something for to carry a purse. You gotta go on with the purse envious. Did you get to carry a purse around fanny. Pack it difficult. It didn't really match with a lot of stuff. I have three fanny packs fluorescent. It says a lot you know. You've got to buckle it But yeah but only like a half my face blue which is weird. It wasn't like the whole face but I did have seafood that night. Maybe it is something in that you should go back tested out in order everything Appreciate all those calls. I do one run over Morgan numbered. WHO's winning songs? We mentioned yesterday. We talked about this because she does have the championship Richard Bell in the draft and so she displays a proudly at her desk. She won ten matches I and so we started to. She doesn't have a song for when she wins. Here heard three options options. The one we played yesterday was Bruno. Mars Twenty Four K magic. Okay here we go wins. She could this song like she wanted her second option which is what beer never broke my heart okay. So there's a winner Morgan too long. Aw that does Kinda fit you. Cadets your brand so far I'm feeling that one for you all right and then here's your other option here. I go again by Whitesnake here. We go Morgan number. She just one. There's Eh and that is kind of you at the Bar Bar Party song. Wow they're all very on brand for me. I'm GONNA pull out the Bruno Mars though like it's a good one but I don't think that one's as as you as the other two are. What do you think about that? I mean I think that Luke homes is perfect because she just gets so excited anytime. That song comes on. So we'll put the vote between Luke Kuhn so I'm taking out Bruno. Mars is was my point here. We'll do that. And we'll vote between Luke combs or Whitesnake. Okay all of us can have of a amy. You're GONNA look homes. Yeah my what are you over there. Just yell it out okay.

I am following through on my New Year's resolution to explore the world and get out of the same places. I've told you about that before so I just got back from meeting Columbia and I'm happy to report that this place is fantastic. It's trendy it's fashionable it's modern. I never felt unsafe there. And they have the amazing food. You've got to go to many Columbia. That's a it's not a guy and I'm very I'm very proud of you. Scare scary typically likes to go to the same places over and over and that's that's an unusual because it's a comfort thing now you wanna get your passport out and go to other places coffee beans or sand in the ashtray. Yes they do fantasy that clinches the deal for me hey producer. Sam. What's up with you today. Yes to things that scare you and bring you to life because it's the only way he will grow as a human being. My armpits have been sweating for like two weeks straight because I'm doing something with net flicks and the only thing I'm allowed to talk about is the show. I am not okay with this. So it's coming out and I'm doing stuff with them and I have been freaking out because I think they made the wrong and terrible decision by calling really. Yeah I promise. I'll only associated with the show. If I do a really good job I will vanish so cool. You're doing only maybe only if I don't screw it up you'll be fine so scared guys come on.

You all know what I'm talking about of course when you're in radio when you do what we do it. I don't know why we try to the in the cab box trying to cover it up with clumping. I try to hide it. I think it also depends on where you are and what your situation is like. If you're in a place where you just want to relax and you know there could be somebody who knows you and wants to have a conversation. It's not that you don't want to have a conversation but if your mind is like in a different place do you know what I'm trying to say when I'm in the Nail Salon a lot of times I get people that say. What do you do for a living and then I start talking that? Oh my gosh and we start having a conversation we start chatting and whatever but if you were in a different place you may not feel now depends on who. You're surrounded exactly so we got. The conversation was basically who? What a cool job you've got to really shown okay. Thank you. I work with great people. I mean we could be grave diggers. That'd be just as happy as long as it's working with you guys. So straighten eight walks in today and you met someone. That's what my friend Carla's wife. I went to Spain and went to Madrid beautiful city. She does the subtitles. She Does the translation for subtitles for all like the movies and TV shows that you watch so when you're watching a movie with subtitles. She's the one who plugged them in which is so funny because I go. It's so weird because it's not a little literal translation sometimes because there's a certain character count that your brain can process so they sometimes paraphrase people say right so she's got to figure out the gist of what somebody's saying and put that in the translation made me wonder because sometimes. I'll be watching subtitles from a French foam or whatever and they'll go on to the final hour and the subtitle is no she goes. Because that's that's the brain can process if that's what essentially they were saying that's what they'll put up. There was so cool Sam and starting a new job today. Hey Sam how you doing good?
