How would you possibly know that now. On election they publish that before election day. Here was rick grenell last night on fox news. A cut number ten. He's a californian urging republicans to get out and vote and shane in many ways. We've already one look one thing. That's clear is that gavin. Newsom is scared. He's got joe biden here today in long beach campaigning. They are paying people with stimulus. Checks he is calling this the republican recall. He's doing everything he can because they are scared.

Biden Campaigns for Newsom in California
"Happy tuesday morning and tuesday morning. Of course means it's election day somewhere right. There's a primary election in cuyahoga county ohio. Today there's a special election for a state house seat in iowa. I see you polk county. Let's be honest. The biggest election of the day the one that will directly affect forty million people and perhaps indirectly affect far more. Is the recall election for california governor gavin. Newsom it's a remarkable moment in our nation's history this recalls about catching you while you're sleeping remember. This ballot is a two. the first question is a simple one. Do you think governor gavin. Newsom should be kicked out of his job and if a majority of voters say yes you go to question two which is who besides gavin newsom should take his place then as for. Who's replacing them. I have a thought the end of the day we could be looking at just a governor serving the rest of his term or perhaps one of the most bizarre replacement projects since arnold schwarzenegger was just an actor. Abc's political director. Rick kleinman following this with bated breath so rick know we talked about how california could be his own country. What are the chances that its leader. Gavin newsom actually loses his job today. We'll brightest prospects live a lot better than they did a couple of months ago there was sort of a scare that got shot into the political landscape across california and nationally when a couple of polls came out that suggested that gavin newsom would would have a hard time getting to fifty percent of people saying that he should stay. That's the magic number more than half half the vote for him to stay for him to keep his job. It's different for the replacement candidate but the polls stabilized significantly vocalized with all kinds of energy. That you have here tonight to vote no on this republican recall and i'll tell you democrats in california. They are thrilled with the turnout numbers. They've seen they've seen people showing up about equal to their their share of the population. Which means for a democrat california. You're in pretty good shape so he could take hours beyond tonight or even into the next day or even next week depending on how close it is for all these votes to be counted keeping might every californian got a mail in ballot but gavin. Newsom feels pretty good. And i think that's one reason you saw president biden and a lot of other big guns. Try to make the case for him. Down the stretch

It shouldn't only be on your side now. It shouldn't feel like a huge burden. Should feel like dedication. Yeah i find that that idea of collaborative work really resonates. And especially. Because i think that when i feel the best about my relationship and this is also true for many friendships too is when i think about it lasts as a thing that i have or that i'm giving to them and more of a thing that we're building together of like. Oh we're putting in the work to build this thing and the thing is almost a third entity right. It's not like me and you. It's me you and the relationship that feels like is actually happening here.

Once we get through this and see who still standing. I mean the big corporations will be standing. And they'll be the starbucks still be where we know. Starbucks is in in paris and so on. But what about the the little guys. And that's what really makes good travel so our initiative right off the bat is going to go back and sweep through and and see what's still there and put the guidebook make the guidebooks accurate. And then patronize the little guys. As if the way we consume can help shape the future. Well that means that An up-to-date book given lead time the time to run down. All these leads figure out. Who's still in business and all that We're talking about what twenty twenty two twenty three till you can sort of figure out what still here in the world and from you know people who value guidebooks. That's that's my thing is writing guidebooks to me. A guidebook at twenty dollars tool for for three thousand dollar experience if it's any good at pays for itself on the shuttle and from the airport and A lot of people are going to be traveling later in. Twenty europe's might beeped but anywhere you know and And then it's going to be almost. I'm i'm i really believe. Travel be wide open in twenty twenty two but from guidebook point of view. Anybody who's updating now is wasting their time you gotta wait till you're expect to some semblance of normalcy before you go back and find out you know who's there and who can we recommend so the workable research is only going to be possible if all goes well. People get their shots in europe and in the united states and so on in early two thousand twenty two and then it takes eight months. If it's just pedal to the metal to get it out into the bookstores so anybody traveling in twenty twenty one or two thousand. Twenty two will be using guidebooks that are either. I think dishonestly claiming to be updated because he can't update it or you're gonna be using information that was accurate in two thousand nineteen when the last of our guide books were updated for twenty twenty. And then you just. There's still much better than nothing at all. I'm going to europe. I hope later this year and be equipping. My i'll be traveling with a guidebook. Like i always do. And we'll just have to realize that you know things have changed and the only way to have information is to be flexible and use. What was accurate before covid. But what i'm committed to is by the end of two thousand twenty two. We will have what we're calling post covid guidebooks researched and updated by experiences after cova had passed. And then you know from twenty twenty three on. we'll be back back in her stride. God.

And then rick sent me a very very nice message on twitter. And he's a big fan of the radio station big fan of the show and we appreciate him and he called in this morning. I'm sure he wants to gloat a little bit about his knick's and he's also up in canada boomer and i know that you are like super into canadian. Ovid vaccination rates just opened a damn border unless you can give you some insight on that. Hey rick what's happened in man our you what's up jay.

Permanent resident i you know if there was no pandemic have you back and forth and new york. My mother brother lives in new york and up here. The rollout so terrible. I you know. It's i don't want to take you know. Paul out anybody but it. It's canada and i'm surprised because these guys are usually top of thing and it's the slowest rollout anybody's ever seen i mean it's not a third world country for god's sake it's got major cities. Why can't they get the rollout going. Well that's why. I'm calling today. Because i'm running for prime minister got my. That's for sure you know what we really care about is how was it. Wa- working with meghan markle. I don't think you remember this. And i keep on this show when i was on with you and craig like two thousand twelve. I kept saying you got. Listen to my pal. Mega will come on with me. You know and you guys at the time and nobody knew suits at all Nobody making it all But she was right there in new york with me. Ready to come on the job because she's gorgeous she's smart you know She was look boomer. Net made of yours. She you know it's their teammate. And you got their back and You know she's been through quite a bit and it's been really tough on her. So let me ask you this question. I mean did you get invited to the wedding boomer. Wow how was that. I was there with What's his name prince. Charles all guys. Yep had a great time. You know what i mean. We were all hanging around the hanging around still such a new yorker yourself was there i was in with what's his name prince charles and all those guys had boomer. Have you ever boomer. Have you ever had to wear a morning coat. I've never had to wear morning code now. We've had to wear morning coats. I look and then and then they caught me. Because i didn't hear this didn't look at the royal wedding my name. I couldn't believe it. I was scared out of my mind because someone said rick. You're trending on twitter am like why would me because goofy moron trending on twitter and it just so happens in the church when you know the weddings going on the air is so still and someone off to the right of me. Had the breath of like the dragon. From jamie thrones and it was so so disgusting. I couldn't keep my face like it was just getting in here. That breath disgusting. And i got caught on the frickin. Tamra making a face like you. Please get this monster out of my like i. It made me. It looked like i was growing up and looking at it. Now play that kind of evil character. You know what i'm saying. It almost fit perfectly. Well that's that's a shame boomer because and you didn't obviously see the rest of the series. But he turned out to be a walking heart. He was sweetheart he ends up. And that's that's the biggest you know able. I'm going to be a really sweet guy if anybody knows the show into space which they probably don't but the thing is is that the wedding. It was a blast. We cast wasn't invited to the knife party. So i would dance party for our cast and their kids and we were right there in this very you know very snooty british castle and we're all having dance was pretty pretty funny so you have an intimate knowledge. I could ask you to break any a different things but if you know. Are you surprised at all this. The way that it broke in the fact that they moved back here to california Look meghan meghan. Got what she wanted. Xiaojie she wanted. She's happy she's gotta prince. She's got the life of a of a princess and i couldn't be happier for and You know people things happen through when you get on a you know a decent successful show go certain ways you know meghan became a princess and i became a lumber jacked up here in canada so just one more time on this detail so you were trying to pitch meghan markle to you craig boomer in al and they said no back in the day no no not at all because i was i was in the booth in the back waiting without Eddie wouldn't remember me. I was just so hyped so psyched to be on the show and you know i got my five minutes to come on. Whatever boomers couldn't be nicer crappy was was couldn't be nicer just in between the commercial. I said hey my pal meghan is here and we wanted to come and say hi. She knew how much i love. Boomer and carton at the time and boomer look through me. Like i was like known back then by you know. Listen things happen. What can i tell you wreck we love you. I follow you on twitter. I know you're huge nick ban. I know you've been obviously been one of our guests. But i mean like i can't hold that against me on an boomer. I don't hold anything again. Heather other when you tweeted me and said it's not for the faint of heart. Yes i took. I took your advice last. I was gonna it off at that and bloomer. You know boomer chesterman up and i. I watched it with what happened. So what do you think. Now here we got we got to go down to atlanta. Now what are you what are you what are you doing. I think you're by the way. Do you know. I agree with you the other day about one. The other thing you said but we said nixon says out of his mind. It's still on the table man. It's still on the table. i think. Probably i say. Nick nick and seven i think they take one atlanta. While they're going to have to tell you it'd be nice if they could take game three but honestly they can't lose both games down there and look as well as nick vans. i think we all have something in common. It's always hard. It's hard to win. It was hard when patrick was here. It wasn't hard. So much when willis and butcher in clyde where leading the team but they had to go against some great teams back then sure. But it's always tough for us knick fans and that's.

Your business is that it can't survive without without the person. Rick steves. i've. I've wanted to get to the point where the business could survive without me and i think we're at the point. Now am really happy about that. That we've got a thima where the company is viable without me on the other hand. It's it's a shame when a company is named after a person because then you have other people should have the the potential to be the public face of that company. It's kind of awkward to say you know.

"Future of travels gonna look like post covid. I'm pretty convinced that the essence of travel will come back you know. rick steves. Travel is the opposite of social distancing. You know i go to Paris kissed on the cheeks. And i go to rome to pack into those piazza's and Do the passage outta strolling in the pedestrian boulevards licking an ice cream cone and checking out the crowd. I go to the pubs in ireland to Clink glasses with people who really believe that strangers are just friends who've yet to meet and i think that will come back. I think it'll be. It'll be incremental. But i think we are on a glide path to normalcy also. I'm concerned that that the little moms and pops that make travel so fun Can survive this because the big businesses will survive it. But i do not want future where everything comes to me. In a cardboard box on my doorstep and where where we're every strip mall is just filled with chain restaurants I don't want that. I don't want that in my regular life. And i don't want that in my travel life and the challenge will be candy small mom and pops the little entrepreneurial ventures The little passionate you know Life work of people about their small museums. That they run will still be after covid. And i hope that we'll be rick four. Am for sixty five year. old guy. you are remarkably self aware of your privilege and Your talked about What it means to be white man in the world and you have been pretty open about your progressive politics. He wrote a book. Called travel is a political act in two thousand nine updated it I think just couple years ago. Do you think. Do you think because you have spent so much time overseas seeing other cultures and other people that it it. It's actually made you more progressive politically. I love how travel opens you up to the world. And i think it does make you more progressive i. I've always been aware that culture shock is a challenge for travelers. And just this. Last few months i've been thinking about her culture. Shock is is a positive thing. It's the growing pains of a broadening perspective and So aware of the gap between rich and poor. I'm so aware that that my daily lottery costs a day's wages for the less privileged. Fifty percent of humanity. Half of our planet is trying to live on five dollars a day. I think is so interesting. How you learn about your country times by leaving it leaving it and looking at it from a distance so this is all to me. You know travel. Teaching has morphed We talked about the very beginning. I said european traveled cheap. It was just budget tricks You know and since then it has more to gradually gradually gradually over the years and now it is getting out of your comfort zone and gaining an empathy for people who live differently and see things differently than we do for somebody who really kind of started this as a a passion project right You never. I can't imagine you rented getting rich off of what you do but you did. I mean this. This is a business that that in two thousand nine hundred generated two hundred million dollars a year staff of one hundred people. I mean you probably have enough money to retire several times over and was money ever important to you. You know. is it important to you do you. Are you uncomfortable. When i say you know you're rich guy. No when i was a when i was a kid i wanted to get as as a businessman. When you get as by making money I pride myself in paying my staff. Well and taken care of my staff and providing a a working environment that helps people feel good about what they're doing not just a earning a paycheck but but but contributing in a positive way. And i like to make money when i when i make money i can do things that Give me power to do stuff. That i think is worthwhile like you know. I like to pay the rent for my local symphony. So my symphony Has a tough time financially like most symphonies and i just thought how about if one of your fans just paid the concert hall rental. Feel your long every year. So i've committed myself to doing that. I i care about Homelessness here. You know i try to high make sure people can find an affordable who when driving in europe and i know a lot of people will never see their name on a plane ticket because life is just tough for them and if we've got money for travelling we should have money to house people here in our country so i bought a twenty five unit apartment building. That's an an edmonds. Washington writes in edna's north of seattle. And i thought a lot of you know well off. People have money as a nest egg sitting in the bank making interest. Why not take that capital and buy an apartment complex and then give it to the w. wc or some organization like that to house people and You still own it but your money is doing something who instead of sitting in the bank Eventually i just gave that building to the y. Wpa and now. I go to sleep knowing that my hard work has resulted in the white. Abc owning in a two thousand five unit apartment complex. That is housing twenty. Five single. moms In this case people who have had problems with hard drug addiction and they were not able to be with the kids and now they can be with their kids g you give yourself some luxuries like when you travel. Do you travel first class in a flatbed. I've never paid for anything other than economy on an ticket. If i get bumped you just get up created because of your your mile no. I don't do miles. I've never collected miles or anything like that. I've just have a. I don't want to try to defend. Because i don't know for sure why i don't like it but i don't bother with miles that they've really miles so when you fly to europe you fly in economy class. I fly way back there and you just somebody just sits next to you. And they're like why aren't you. Rick steves i'd just sit there like a norwegian bernie sanders with my noise reduction headphones on looking at my laptop for eight hours. How do you prevent people from giving you a bunch of free stuff or trying to influence your decision by making he because you've got to be recognized now everywhere you go. It's not like you're a an anonymous. Soon critic wrote. I mean personally because you gotta earn your way into a rick steves book. You can't get in there because you gave a nice bottle of wine or your cousins already in there you gotta earn it kiowa. I owe that to my readers so it is a constant battle and i I you know. I get free rooms when i travel and nobody would charge me for room when i go to their hotel because i sent him a quarter of their business all year long. But i'm very tuned. Into the fact that i cannot let that corrupt me if if things go south that hotel even if it's run by friends of mine is out of the book it breaks my heart but i have helped to drop hotel's run by friends of mine because it's no longer what it used to be one at earned a spot in the book. G u Do you think that your audience is getting older or do you think that you are still appealing to like. If you're if you're young traveller today like when i was twenty and i went all over europe. Why would you use rick. Steve skied versus. Let's go or a rough guide or lonely planet. Yeah my staff is tuned into generational changes and so on. I find it kind of boring. A maybe it's the generation but I wanna produce content. I think if content is fundamentally helpful and if it's well designed and if it's affordable the format can be devised after the fact to fit the consuming habits of this generation of that generation so is it an electronic booker but can print is an apple. That kind of stuff. I don't know. I just want to produce the content. You know. i've been know our guidebooks at the best before it hit. My publisher was so excited. He showed me. The sales chart and twenty five of the top thirty guidebooks in published in the united states for europe. Had rick steves on the cover. And i think that is more.

"Always thinking. I'm talking to my parents and their friends. And when you were you know leading these lectures and talking about going to europe. I mean were you just saying look you can do this. I don't speak french. German guidebook you can make your you know you can make it work. I think that's part of my How i was successful. Part of my appeal is. I'm not a scholar. You know. I mispronounced the words. I don't know how to say perry you know I say paris. I speak only english. I remember interviewing my students. That was a fear knepper. I don't speak the language and tell them well neither. Do i and i write guidebooks i make. Tv shows. i lead tours and have great vacations. Going to portugal. So i i have to imagine after you publish to the back door self published for. I think the first edition came out in one thousand. Nine hundred eighty is that right. That's right I'm assuming that it was clear to you because you had you had established business right you. You called it europe to the back door a few years earlier you probably filed an llc. But i it's not clear to me that you thought this was still going to be the way you were gonna make a living up until one thousand nine hundred and would i buy filed anything. I'm kind of laughing at that. Because i was i was so klutzy i was just having fun teaching and selling books out of the back of my car when i had books to sell but i think back on it friends and loved ones and relatives. Give me these ideas in my gut responses. it's crazy. And then i think about it and it's actually a great idea and a good friend of my parents. Petty price said you should take bus tours around. And i just thought that sounds horrible and then i thought god is huge efficiency and sharing the rental cost of minibus. And i'd love to you know love to help organize people's trip plans at the table and the dormitory over lunch and i'd love to take people around europe on these minibus tours. And so i. I was giving these talks and it was very easy to talk. People who are enamored with me because of my finance stories. I could tell about traveling. They kind of natural they would. They'd be interested in traveling with me. If i made that possible and i did and there was no there was no promises. The minibus tours were is like a commune on wheels. It was it was not profitable except to cover my costs waking the over there longer and you know everybody had almost sign a little agreement. That says they wouldn't complain about the lousy accommodations. Who was so upfront. So you basically would you drive the bus. Yeah i drove. The bus was just. That was a beautiful four million people. Wanna get into the travel business and make some money. I say you know. I think the best thing is just to have a forte. Just you know you are. You know you are. Mr scandinavia. You are mr bajaur monsieur california and just do that specialty with eight people on a minibus and The economy of sharing of a vehicle with eight people is wonderful. The fact that you don't have to take care of a driver and a guide but the driver can be. The guide is wonderful and That's that was kind of my original formula there and this worked really well at the time i was. I would actually have a day. Where i would a announced my my minibus tour plans for the next year and i would give the talk i i would. I would say okay. I'm gonna explain the tours. And then i'll take deposits for the tours on that day and i'd have you know four or five tours that i would doing the minibus. I was always the guide and the driver and that night all those tours would before they would sell out there would sell out. That one was like what ten or twelve people per per tour. Eight people per tour news usually twenty two days spec then i only did twenty two day tours. I was on a one man crusade to help. Americans have a longer vacation of just amazed that we put up with such short vacations and so is twenty. Two days and britain twenty two days in germany austria switzerland It's funny because now you know forty years later it's evolved where that's way too long for the american market and the longest tour is twenty days in our best selling tours or ten or twelve days. So i'm trying to. I'm trying to picture this. I mean you are like inner late twenties. You're offering these minibus tours with a people and it's you're driving the minibus and you're the guide and you only speak english so i mean that's a lot to take on like you didn't have a local guide. Was he was just you. Oh yeah and. I didn't have the sophistication or the appreciation of a local guide or or the money for local guide so we were just bumbling around together. You know. I remember we the craziest things. We'd we'd go through the the. There's an oak forest where admiral nelson used to get his masters for his ships in southern wales. Forget the name of the forest of something very romantic and we would take turns sitting on top of the bus on the on the luggage rack and a couple of people up on the top of the luggage just so they could look at the oak forest as we rolled through it slowly every night. We'd in the youth hostel. We'd pull out the map in debate. We would actually debate what we're going to do the next day and this was a formative time for me as a tour organizer because again i was learning what the market wanted. I was learning how many how many hill towns can immortal tour find worth climbing up How donnas and children can immortal tourist be excited about After a while it doesn't matter if it's raphael's greatest. They're going to stay in the busing else because they're burned out on madonna's and children. It's interesting i remember This is this business kind of philosophy. I think of mine. I would have the handbooks for those tours laying around in my lectures and the handbooks were designed so people could be independent in the context of the tour that was. There's always this focused. Everybody got a handbook who joined. That's right yeah and time and time again. And i was so so impressed by honest mike mike. My students were in these classes. I gave i never checked. Id for checks when people were giving me any money for anything and and just didn't need to. They're just great people but they were stealing this book these books and i. I thought these two handbooks are driving decent people to theft. They need to be available for sale. So the next year sort of a radical thing to do. I put everything. I knew about doing the tour in the handbook for the tour intending to give people the information necessary. So they could do. The rick steves tour without rick steves. They could buy the book for five bucks and do it on their own and some people said. Oh you're giving away all your secrets. No it was a great thing because it turned people onto the tours and it opened up my teaching people that wouldn't take the tours anyway. And then i could stand in front of these groups of people who were taking my classes for free and say i don't care you can take my tour or you can buy this book and do al but just do it and do it right. When did you start to think of yourself as the real deal. Because i think a lot of people including myself have had an subtypes. Still have imposter syndrome. We we're like how do people listen to me. When did when did you start to thank god. I i'm not an expert. But we you kinda you kinda grow into it. Yeah i remember a big breakthrough for me. Was arthur frommer. I mean he was the granddaddy of all this. He's the guy that that that inspired the the democratization of of international travel. You know europe on five dollars a day right as classic book. Yeah and i was just a kid and I mean i must have been right after. I sell polish my book. And and he hadn't even know he knew who i was he. He had me fly all the way to new york and beyond his radio show and ours a tv show. I think maybe and He's he put his you know he kind of effectively. Put his arm around me. Said ladies and gentlemen. I'd like you to meet the next temple. Fielding eugene fodor and stephen birnbaum of the travel publishing world well those were the big household words in the fifties and sixties yielding guides for door guides birnbaum guides. And eventually me you would do. You would do your own. Like rick steves guides because you'd get a publisher and start publishing them. But i mean for a while. I guess you were. You were pretty much hawking that the.

"The songs ready. We have to find a way. That when the moment is right to make it, we can make it and I can think of very few times in my life where it hasn't worked out where at a time I might have been making five albums at the same time. back in the days when I'd have to go from studio to studio. It might be. We're doing overdubbed with this artist and I'm working on just vocals with another artist on a different album at at same time. Maybe I do noon to noon to three with one artist and three to six with another artist. That way or maybe I'm doing pre production with one and working on mixing with another, and it could be as many as four or five or six going on same times, not unusual because some of them could go on for years, you know. Game going. I work with engineers and each project usually try to have an engineer dedicated to that particular project. Okay, the TAG team partner. So and also I like to work in the old days. They used to work all night drive home. His son was coming up now modern early schedule, so I like that session. Start at like noon or one. And I like to be done by six now. That doesn't mean on strokes album which we just made recently just came out. Three weeks ago or something right? I would from. Noon to six. And then I would leave a list a to do list, so the band could go on working as late as midnight. If you know they banned could work as long as they want and have a list of things to do in addition to anything. They WANNA try on their own. And then the next morning I would come in. We review what happened the night before, and then we would start on the day's work. I try. And I've also by making a lot of albums of come to realize. When my voice is particularly helpful in the process and Sometimes, it's in pre production. It means a lot in the basic track. It means a lot getting the vocals that means a lot but many of the other times during overdose during Guitar Solos. I usually I trust the artist I. Let them do it. Then I might come in like with Tom Morello for doing on either of rage record an audio slave record. She'll do Solos on everything, and then and say you know those are all great, and this one's not as good like we got and then maybe. Redo this or if there's ever ones where it's like, let's work on this one together for some reason. If he if he can't crack the code on his own, then we'll do it together, but I i. don't like to hold an artist's hand I. Don't like to alternate if the artist feels like they've done everything themselves. That's the best feeling for me like. I don't want I. Don't want to. I don't want the process to be about me. Life lessons. WanNa Noli Life Lessons Rick Rubin. Don't make you about you and walk first thing in the morning. Don't want the process to be Agra for you..

"When I was the last time there's just a lot more involved. There's a lot more around the team. There's a lot more noise around the coaching fraternity today. And I had to get used to that and honestly I'm just I don't know how many how many games coach doesn't matter. It was Dallas as the head. Coach is just now getting to be a little more comfortable but that was the biggest change for me being taken aback by the whole thing that developed as quickly as it did walk in at seven o'clock in as assistant in the seventy one year the interim head coach. What were this compromise? And so it's taken Awhile when Your First Head coaching job? Your stars were del. Howard Chuck and Thomas Team. How does it compare dealing with Dale Howard? Chuck and Thomas in nineteen eighty six to dealing with Tyler Sagan and Jamie Ben and two thousand twenty. Well the the difference was that I had actually played Dale and Thomas when we drafted Dale back. And when dad? You have to daily eighty-one so I played a little bit with Dale and I played a little bit with Thomas because now from the minors and then I was an assistant coach for three years. Right I had a good rapport with those guys prior to me coming in his rugged and that was in term when they fire Danny moloney coming into Dallas. I had no idea of you know any relationship at all with Tyler Jamie so again. I had to build a relationship with them and again now. My role is changed. The title has changed. My relationship with them has changed. I'm far more involved with them now than previous because just coaching the defense and coaching the penalty. Killing didn't have a lot to do with them. You know you talk to them as as a coach every day in a friend anybody day so now I've worked hard to develop a strong relationship with them and listen. I know there's been some criticism over the past about them but not scoring this and that both of these guys. As far as I'm concerned their hearts in the right place they WANNA win. Maybe the numbers are what everyone expected in based on salary based on whatever with their hearts are in the right place they WANNA win so my relationship with them is based on on that and I have a lot of respect for their character a lot of respect for what they bring to the ice you mentioned coming to Dallas and right away there were two defenseman think. A lot of people noticed right away. Their game went to a new level with you. Handling the defense Was Esselin Dell and the other is Jamie Alexia. How much did you look at these two players and said there's more here and I can get it out of them well with With Esa if all the you know when I went there last year you watch video over the summer to get a feel for the guys you don't I don't know anything about Dallas. Really really played them once or twice a year. And that was it and then when you get to work with them of all the players that were in Dallas. He's the best of them in terms of I didn't know what I was getting. And how good player he was. He's much better player than I realized. You know. He's a wonderful wonderful person. Great teammate but this guy is he's what you want from. As a coach a guy that shows up every day he works every day as a great attitude and he brings it every day but again a smart player you can play in any situation against anybody and for a young guy in all of a sudden his minutes went way up and his responsibilities went way up and he's handling remarkable meanwhile but it speaks of the characteristics of his talent with Jamie last year when we got him didn't know much about him either and it took a little while he was a healthy scratch. A couple of times then we got him settled down and we got him playing his game and we last. Jamie in the playoffs against Saint Louis and it was noticeable. When Jamie was not in our lineup. Yeah he brings a physical presence in another big guy. That can skate. Never Culture book hit and he's very laid back guy. There's no question about that so you work with a guy like that. Don't bring that personality on the ice. We need you to be physical. It's not a natural instinct. But he responded and he's confidence just grew and so. I had a conversation with them this year in training camp. I don't mind sharing with the guys that I went to Jameson Jamie. We've got to get to the point. Where the coaches aren't discussing. Are you a healthy scratch for you in the lineup like there were not behind the scenes talking about you? If you play the way you we know you can play. That conversation will not happen. That's up to you that's to me that's up to you to go on the ice and do it every day. And that's what he's done he brings it every day and He's a huge part of our team. Now being healthy scratch when we first got him to where he is today. There's both ends of the spectrum. Listen this guy can play. And he's a big help to our hockey club and a wonderful guy good teammate. In fact there was a game a couple of games ago. Somebody took a run at Miro while I was guys lasts up against the boards. Jimmy wasn't very happy about that but he understands now his importance to the team and he enjoys that role that we've given them. I wanted to ask you a little bit about the coaches association and when you first started there was nothing like that and if you ever walked in and said like that time coach to say we want to start a group you probably would have been blackballed. Well let's go back to the eighties. Yes those conversations did take place and we did try to get something going and we in some head coaches lost their job and so is this. Yeah they did and I know I'm aging myself for that. But some coaches in. That was never proven. Obviously that they were fired because we're trying to get an association goal. You guys do like in the green your we needed to get it. We know the Players Association was gaining strength. We felt at that point. We needed something We didn't have any pension benefits back. There was here's your salary. Take it or leave. It like we didn't have any strength so dissociation. Today has done a remarkable job for every coach. Not just at our level but anyone aspiring to be a coach because all the information in terms of salaries is there for you and it just opens up more doors that we haven't association so he can contact other coaches. So there's there's more interaction between our coaching now than there coaching fraternity. Now than there ever was in a lot of that is base because of the Of Our sociation. The you know we we talk about salary information and they've done a phenomenal job just getting every imagine that now we're just getting to the stage that every coach. Inara league now has a pension. We never had that before. There's probably forty percent of our coaches weren't even involved in any teams pension so the fact that we have an association now that will go to bat for us and fight for us as a group not just one or two guys which was the case before three. Markle that the steps that we've taken but it's not just the pensions to health benefits. It's you want your green card. Your visas any. Help your wheels anything you need. Our Association takes care of that. We've never had that before and I've been coaching this league. Nineteen eighty-three and and I tell my can Lindsey they. They've done a phenomenal job of bringing this association to where it is today the strength of our group. It's never been like this. The communication with our group has never been like this. Oh you gave Mike and a lot of credit for getting us to where we are today. And I tell our coaches that too because you get a lot of coaches coming into our league and I'm telling them this wasn't like this ten fifteen years ago like you guys are walking into a pretty good scenario. A lot of coaches have paid the dues paid their dues to get you to the stage but we needed the support and the they've done a great job with the League. How much support is there amongst coaches? There is a feeling that there's thirty one teams so there's thirty one head coaching jobs and everybody would you know. Knock the grandmother down an icy road to get one of these jobs. Is that like that is at that competitive. Is that is it? That dog eat dog or is there support amongst the their support. You know I'm going to different stage of my career so and I get that but for a young guy coming into our league in this. Try to talk them like. They're very very supportive. No one wants to see a head coach. Get fired do we. Do they all want head coaching jobs? Absolutely that's why they're getting into the business while getting into the industry. They all want that shot at the head coaching job but in saying that they're all very supportive each other. We're all very sad and disappointed when one of US gets fired because no one wants to go through that because been through a few more times than I wanNA remember. It's not a fun experience so you never ever want to see one of your your partners. Get fired added that being said it opens the door for someone else and yeah. There's a lot of guys that want to get ahead job. And so yeah. There's a pros and constant knee. Just hate to see someone get fired but it also opens the door for someone else. Here's my last question. You mentioned your son Ryan. He is now Iran scouting director pro scouting for the Pittsburgh Penguins. So let's just say that at some point Ryan becomes a general manager and he says Dad. I need a coach or I'll be too old by don't have already told him you become a GM. I WANNA be a consultant. Okay ask consultants the best job in the world I say. How do you get one of those jobs okay? Let's let's do it. Let's do it this way Ryan's GM and he says to you data. Got a problem with my team. I gotTa make a change. I need you to be my interim head coach just to help me see what's going on down there. Do you take a job as coach under Ryan. Bonus the General Manager Mel. That's political. Listen He's my. I would do absolutely anything. The world help them and I think we would both know 'cause that's a few years away and I'm sixty five now that that would be very short term. It lists put it this way. I would be there to extend my coaching career at all and they will then. Did you ever try to dissuade him from becoming an executive or anything like that or you were always Ryan? You've gotTa Follow Your path for first of all. He's a lot smarter than I am. Because he doesn't want to. Coach wants to be a general manager but Ryan Ryan's always had I've had the passion for the game and he played for years junior. Anyone Padilla Saint. Mary's got his degree in play the year in the East Coast. But he's always had the passion for the game and so my oldest son Ricky never played until we played a little house league in Ottawa and never steered her towards hockey whatsoever. That that never bothered me one bit and eventually rookie ended up working in the League and the Media Relations Department for Detroit in Columbus but Now he's on his own business wise but Ryan's always had that passion so I've kind of helped him with that and again. I'm glad that he's in the game because I know him what she loves the game so when they were kids. I would bring. I'd bring them to the rink in the morning. Orion run into the locker room and he'd be working with trainers he'd be doing laundry hanging up sweaters looking at equipment and then he committed. Newnan say cheese dad by a piece of pizza so as in this great right so we got to raise your level any more demanding or ricky would commit. He'd go on the computer and he'd be teaches his father how to use the computer. So Ricky. Have the brains but Ryan's always had the passion so I'm glad he's in the game and I'm but I'm really because he is chasing his dream of being a general manager and this. I never forced hockey on them. This is a natural. He's like I M. He just loves the GAME. You've done so much In this game as a player certainly as a coach in very good player. Let's go play. It's good tell the kids because there are always bugging me. Boat my low stats. There was only seventeen is back then. I might be able to be regular in this league. Today were thirty one teams. So you've checked a lot of boxes is that just what I what I'm getting? Winter Classic would have been another box. I would imagine that you checked behind the bench for the Dallas Stars. How many more boxes are there? Were direct bone. Just WanNa get a Stanley Cup. But I'm running out of time and I get sixty five now. Yeah that would be would be huge for me I want. I've coached over twenty four hundred games. I'd like to over twenty five hundred next year at some point and but the the Stanley Cup what drives me is like when I went to Dallas that last summer. It's not like I needed the job. I didn't go there because I needed a job. I want. I went there because I want to win the Stanley Cup. And there's a big difference. There had four or five other opportunities could've retired. That was.

"I'll let you go eighty six year on that team. Did you want the Lakers or did you just want to win the chip. You didn't care well. Everybody pretty assumed it was going to be the Lakers. Under forget I was in a restaurant watching game one of La Houston and the Korean. Got The ball inside. And he went up for Hooky got fouled. He scored and the camera the camera pans over to Jack. Nicholson and I could read. Nicholson's lifts he said ballgame and it just seemed like this is how it was going to go and then Houston got on a roll and beat them. I believe four consecutive games culminating in the play where you know. They allowed the ball to Samson and he ebb simultaneously caught it turned and one timed it in from whatever it was twelve fourteen feet and and all of a sudden it was us and them and they played well in the final series. We one in six people remember that series as a walkover walk over and it wasn't there was a couple of things that happen to believe in in game three that that allowed them to to wind game three and then get to game for you know with with only one game difference. I believe we won game four and then plus game five and then we went home in one game. Six game six was not close. You know that was all time Larry. Yeah that was you know that was just a a wild old in crazy Boston Garden and you know Houston was a team that was they were probably best described as an upstart star team. That got to that point. But they really weren't ready for that moment whereas makers certainly had a history in would've been but it Hey that was that year and it was an amazing run. It was an amazing group of guys. Like there's at least five hall of Tamers possibly six. If you count you know Wallenberg Mikhail Parish Dennis Johnson. Maybe only five and you know it was a brand of basketball. That was just absolutely beautiful to watch last. One couple of your old head veterans said I have to ask you this and I think they know the answer so there may be putting me in trouble spot here said ask rick why. He used his ankles before coaching games. We we don't played. I always take my ankles. And what a world what happened. What happened was it was a little bit of A? You know I let the players in on it metaphorically a little bit just to let as kind of a symbol of a wrapping up and getting ready to go here you know but the truth was I. I think I had some new shoes and I have very long narrow feet and so when I get a pair of shoes the break in period was sometimes a little longer than normal and my heels. Would sometimes blister up so I would applied elastic tape. You know so that my my heels wouldn't wouldn't get shredded and so that's that's inside scoop on that and you know fortunately now I've I've found a shoe company that makes us at a pretty softening. I put them on. And that's that saved the team a lot of expense on tape. Look at that you guys shoes you got a room full amount and do your hotel good stuff. Rick Carlisle Good luck. It's going to be a really interesting seem to really interesting team and it's been fun to watch over the years and it's it's really appreciate that you took some time to come on the pleasures okay..

"PODCAST live from an undisclosed location occasion in New York City New York. I'm very excited to be joined by. Truly one of the greatest coaches of all time one of the most interesting people in the NBA The longtime coach of the Dallas Mavericks and former coach both the Pistons and the Pacers. Mr Rick Carlisle how are you. I'm well you're well good to be on the low post. I don't think the low post. Yeah it's fun seeing it's upon I got that of the sixteen. Th The coach of the six and four Dallas Mavericks coming off a tough loss to a very feisty Boston Celtics takes team. You are going into the proverbial lions then in a couple of days in Madison Square Garden. Although the lions are not going to be out for you they're going to be out for all sorts of other other stuff. Have you talked to Porzingas at all. About what the atmosphere is going to be like and obviously the physical stuff is brewing. Are you just like or each's laser on like the Knicks. Just beat us in Dallas was beat them. Well IT'S A. There's a lot going on. I think that's that's an accurate securit portrayal of the situation. And you know the game in two days at the garden is really kind kind of a confluence of a lot of different things that are going on the bottom line is they beat us. They played one of their best games of the year. They beat us four days ago or whatever it was it was a disappointing loss for us at home. And we've got to bounce back from that you know in terms of everything going on with KP coming back I don't need to get into a lot of that stuff you know. He's he's aware that there's going to be a lot of attention on this game and and so on and so forth we've we've we've got to focus on ourselves as a team We've got to focus on things that we need to do better that we haven't been doing well In a couple of the last three games you know I guess New York and Boston. We struggled defensively in some areas. That we gotta get spend time on that stuff tomorrow and get ourselves ready the and the game on Thursday that That I'm looking forward to a good test for our team in terms of our ability to focus in bounce back. It's very early. How would you evaluate the fit of Luca and porzingas on offense? So far it's the fit is is great. I mean those are just high level offensive players. You GotTa Guy of Lucas Abilities as a as a ball hayler playmaker maker score. You know everything that he can do. You can post. He can begin. Pass it he can drive it. Capeeze agreed shooter at seven three. And you know capeeze working his way back from a very unusual situation just in terms of the amount of time that he's been away oh it was eighteen eighteen in one thousand nine months and I don't know if any NBA player has ever been offered that amount of time and then come back. But he's doing well you know it's been a little up and down which we knew it was going to be He's had a couple of really spectacular games. He had thirty two against Portland at twenty eight against the Knicks in which was probably his best offensive game from the standpoint of rhythm and spacing and making reads Last night in Boston was a tough night for him. You know you need a poor shooting night and so you know we have a day-to-day to to sorta gather ourselves. We import practice tomorrow and then we play on Thursday practice day in the NBA. Unbelievable yeah every once in a while. Sal You get you know what I Term Quality Practice Day which means you've had one day to rest you know presumably an off day and then you're set up basically to have a full live practice and then you know the game will will follow the next day and the challenge there is to is to do the right amount of stuff right amount of of competing the right amount of you know skill building development refinement. Those kinds of things and the use of time time in the NBA is one of the real challenges chap I believe it One of the things. That's been interesting about Deluca K.. P. Fit is you're playing the two of them most of the time on if not almost all the time with a rim runner like Powell or Cleophas. Actually kind of a nice rim runner free to and it's been interesting to see like if you look at the numbers. Luca has run many more pick and rolls with those two guys with Porzingas in Porzingas is then spotting up around those guys and I wonder like obviously you've noticed that you're the coach. Those guys are elite Rim runners Lucas lab passing this year. What the heck you did him in the summer but the law passing has been ridiculous so accurate and so good? But are you worried at all that that marginalize generalizes Porzingis or that you have a ways to go to sort of make them work together in a two-man game like directly. Yeah some of this stuff is an ongoing doing work in progress. You know one of the things that were that you find in in these situations is that you know there's so much switching now in the NBA NBA. If you set up situations that are going to lead to switches you gotta be careful about then rolling down into kind of a slow moving isolation type situation because you know these are these are very inefficient situations league wide and so when we have our spacing thing the way we like it were were score on the ball at a very very high rate. And you know we're GonNa keep working on finding ways to it to integrate you know the combination of KP and Luca both in a pick and roll situation and also with some off ball actions and some other things and you know. Oh as you mentioned. We're we're pretty early in the process. So we're learning were were communicating and we're trying to make it better every day to switching in an inefficient isolation thing to I'm jumping ahead on my question list but I think one of the Great Forgotten Playoff series of your career. You just nailed exactly what you did to the other team. I want you to see if you can guess it. The other team was a huge favourite in that series. It was the first round. I don't want to give it away too much. And it's within the last last. Eight years I don't know what the Boston no no playoffs. Here you were in. As coach of the Mavericks Mavericks Maven San Antonio San Antonio two thousand fourteen. What if that series like it's these great first round series? We sometimes get forgotten. You were the team that pushed the spurs the hardest that entire playoffs. It came to a game seven. They blew out but that had like a vince. Last second shot shot. That was like kind of a sneaky epic first round series. What are you remember from that and what you did was if I recall you? Put Marian on Tony Parker and you started switching a lot of their two man action to exactly what you just said. Sort of take away their driving kick stuff right. Well you know. They were prolific three point team. And you know they're they're picking roles with their five men led to a lot of situations where a perimeter guys were having a tag the roller and they moved it so well and they got into the lane so quickly that it was hard to get out to those guys and so yeah we we did some things to get ourselves in a position to stay home Oman shooters little more and make them take some tougher two point shots. At least that was what the plan was. And you know in that particular series series. We did a lot of great things. But we're where we really fell. Short was game when we had a real opportunity to win and we had an eight or nine point lead early in the fourth quarter. And we're not able to finish the game and if you're an underdog underdog team on the road in the first two games of a playoff series. Getting that first game is so important now. We did changes everything. Everything right changes the whole series because playing from in front is really what what. It's all about an literally. If you look at how playoff series come come down you know historically or whatever we did win game two And we did win game. Three when Vince hit the shot but winning game one on would've would've put us in a much stronger position to be in a game situation at home with a chance to close it out. Just we didn't get there. We had to win game six to get it to game seven but yeah exactly I think one of the things. You're bringing up here. That's interesting and a lot of a lot of your listeners. That do follow the game closely. Asli in in great detail. People that do remember that series. The game has evolved so much since two thousand fourteen. Yeah I mean this is this is five plus years now and back in those days five outspacing was something that but no one was talking about today. It's it's the norm rather than the exception and I believe the guy that did this I was was don Nelson a golden state You know in the two thousand six two thousand seven timeframe he put five guys around the perimeter and you know he would say basically all right. Garda's one on one and goddess in driving kick. And we dare you to try to stay in front of our Baron Davis Chris and Steve Jackson and Montiel's those guys and then we're going to line-up threes and we're going to make the game fast and you gotta play in our pace and he was the first one that did it. It probably seemed gimmicky at the time but that concept it is something that today is really the signature of today's game. If you talked about the rockets were here last week and Dantonio our talking a little bit at this actual same location national right now if you talk to him about his sons teams in his big regret. Other than all the stuff to suspensions and stuff that happened to them in the playoffs was in retrospect we didn't take it far enough. Nash should have shot more threes. I should have played Marian at the five sometimes like we just didn't take it far enough and it's interesting to hear him talk about it. He's like we just just didn't feel we've we felt internally that everyone else felt it was a gimmick at that got in our heads it got in our heads that we're like maybe maybe we're being too unconventional maybe. This really doesn't work in Guy. This is interesting to hear him talk about like. That's his big regret. Well that is interesting and you know to really the first team that was able to win playing smaller Golden State. And they did it. You know speed the game up in two thousand fifteen. They're a big adjustment in their series against Cleveland was to basically put big a dollar. Five Green at the five Kalikim became in then year. Here Barnes were the four men and you know they sped it up and played faster and they did take it to an extreme. It's interesting that Mike. Mike Mike said those things you know. His Phoenix teams. Were were really really really difficult to play. I imagine it was ninety dollars then. They're playing so much faster. Yeah I mean you know. When they were in their heyday? We had pretty good teams in Indiana when I was there and we may have beaten him once or twice and one of them was a game. More Nash went on the first quarter with tweaked an ankle or something like that so we got. We got a little fortunate because he was he was really the motor motor in the engine. That was driving that whole thing to a large degree. But it's interesting that Mike would have those kinds of thoughts about it but I understand where he's coming from sometimes for inspiration so you just have to look up for more than sixty years. The Goodyear Blimp is fueled greatness on the Gridiron by providing aerial coverage of some.

And I think like I said, I think you're I think you're criminally underrated. Because you're one of my favorites to watch you just play in the way, you hit in the pocket, you lay down and everything how I talked. You've been doing this for how long when did you start playing Trump's professionally professionally when did you start? How are you professionally? I guess would be my first record that I made with Martin right back in nineteen eighty three was the first record. But I when I was seventeen I moved to Memphis, and I was playing and I've been playing ever since. But I mean, you know, professionally touring and making records since eighty three with the Martin van before Mr. big, and tesla there was Eric Martin band. So you've got a forty years plus in I do. Yeah. And one of the things I think that's incredible about you is. I love I love drummers that hit hard. And like I said lay down that killer pocket like you do, but I find that as they age, and they if drumming is a physical thing a lot of ailments people have problems with Rhys elbows. You don't seem to have.

And I thought it was going to have surgery both my hands, and I got steered away from that Sita chiropractor base of changes in my diet, which was crazy because I just changed my diet over the years. And my body physically is in pretty good shape. I have a certain demand of the way I play. I got it measure up, you know. So I do not want to lighten up part of me up. I never not want to be able to perform at the level. I want to perform out. So I'm pretty hard on myself that way what I try to put out. Out and make sure that I could still deliver. But it is a bit challenging, you know, I'm going to be sixty October. You know, so. Yeah. But anyway, thank you for all those kind words. Yeah. No. I mean, I mean, I remember just just every time.
