"And welcome to another episode of Captain Hunters podcast. Thank you so much for tuning being in a truly appreciate the love and support that you all have been giving thank you so much for what you all are doing to make this podcast to go into growth. Thank thank you so much they say when you enter the podcasting world that you should not always monitor your numbers. Keep track of numbers However I tend to be a little hard headed with that and I actually do follow the numbers so I wanNA say as at Christmas gift for the end of this month of December Christmas or Hanukkah? Whatever holiday you you celebrate the just put it like that but certainly in my case I take it as a Christmas gift that the numbers have grown much in for the month of December? I have had more active downloads this month than in the previous months and I wanna say thank you to the audience who was growing and going. I want to say thank you to those Members members of the audience who have been sharing liking subscribing. Thank you so much I appreciate. It is truly been paying off and I truly appreciate all that so as we usually do for the month of for the end of the month. We're going to do an end of the month. Wrap up now. I know that there's been much happening in law enforcement. I will not attempt to address all of these things but I just a few of them. I hope that everyone is having a very good safe productive holiday season. Whatever whatever it is you celebrate Kwanza Christmas or Hanukkah? Whatever it is you celebrate? I hope that your holidays are good. And you're enjoying the true spirit of the season which is about family which is about brightness in hope if we take a look at this time of year. We understand that it's really about The darkest time of the year the winter solstice being the the twenty first of December so the darkest time of the year and therefore we celebrate somehow some way in whatever fashion that is that the light has come back into the world or that the world is going to get lighter and brighter and everything like that. So if you're looking at it from that perspective I hope that everything within your life is going better as we enter into the new year. I hope that you have these thoughts on your mind as you enter into the new year as we have been starting a new segment. I have decided to a talk about how to make you the best you that you can be right how to make view the best you that you can be and so this new segment that we've been starting so I decided to incorporate that into this particular episode into the monthly. Wrap up so we can focus on a lot of things now i. I had something that I wanted to talk about. What let me does deviate and talk about something different? And that is how we deal with grief On Christmas Day no less. I had a member of my family pass away. It's incredibly hard during any time of the year. Let's just be honest about hi. This is going to be hard to deal with the debt no matter what the time of year is but we understand that number one death is inevitable bill and it's coming To each into every one of us I had my own scare and brush with death At least that's how I look at it any way with my triple bypass clearly. If I hadn't not had the medical insurance in the the wherewithal to go to the doctor I might not be able to be here today. I'm truly grateful Info for all the medical advances that we have had and everything else like that. But I wanted to talk about the celebration of life just for a few moments before we get into our typical monthly. Not Wrap Up. I WanNa talk about the celebration of life and what that means right so many times we we go to funerals in we grieve and our own way and these funerals While they are essentially religious ceremonies. Right it's important for us to be able to gre- in our own way. We are going to miss our loved ones we are going to think about our loved ones And sometimes there can be a little bit of a guilt that is felt by those who have been left behind. And so I I wanna say to you the loved ones. You should not feel guilty. You should not feel any type of remorse for what what happened. Try to get over any type of feelings of remorse or guilt or negative feelings about The passing of a loved one one. We understand that sometimes people are taken away from US way too soon right through traumatic injuries. Accidents Diseases But what we can do in the meantime is try to make the best of the time that we have with each and everyone of us I know this does not sound comforting as as we go forward but try to as you dealing with the passing the loss of a loved one. Think about the good time that you had think about the time that they laughed that you made them laugh that they made you laugh. Think about the Times that they helped you the time that you help them the Times as they were there for you the Times you were there for them. Think about the good times and celebrate their life. Make sure that you take this time. As we as many Christians will celebrate the life coming thing into the world right the light and the life coming into the world they celebrate this and so I want you to celebrate the life of a loved one whether a person person is here right now. One of the best things that I've ever heard is to give someone their flowers while they can smell them. So take this time as we enter turn to the new year as we celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah holidays whatever holiday you celebrate take this time to celebrate the life of the loved one around you while you have them that life that the baby that was born into the world that toddler that teenager full grown adult than midlife crisis adult in the elderly. About take time to celebrate their life give them their flowers while they can smell them. Enjoy your time around them. I know it's hard to lose loved. Loved ones in words really can't fix the pain. Only time heals the wound in time things will get better in. In the meantime celebrate their life. Look at pictures. Look at videos talk about them. Keep their memory alive through discussions passing down any saying that they had listened to the music that they loved. Listen to the poems that they may have written. Look the artwork that they may have drawn Celebrate their life and don't just think about what you have missed yes we will miss them yes they will be missed. yest- just the pain of the loss in the sorrow that we feel is it hurts sometimes to the bone but just continue to focus on the good parts of their life. Continue to focus on everything that was good and positive how they made your life better if I can recall. Recall back to my former days being a crisis intervention officer. We understand that there are different ways that people deal with loss and grief and so people grieve in different ways. Don't let anyone ever tell you that the way that you're grieving isn't right. If you WanNa cry and cry let it out if if you don't WanNa cry don't let someone talk you into crying. Be Real in your emotions be real in your sympathy. Be Real in your empathy. Be Real in your grieving living process. I think there's a there's a few things that we have to really understand and that's to acknowledge. The pain acknowledged the in fact. You are going to miss. This person. Acknowledged it's okay. You're going to miss this person. They made you laugh. They made you cry. They made you sick sometimes. Sometimes sometimes you wanted them to leave other times. You could not wait to be in the presence. Just acknowledge your pain in as I said before right does is no right way to more. There's no right way to go through laws. Go through in your own way and in your own time you gotta take some time off from work you have to take some time away from the kids do what you have to do. In order to to really get through and get to the heart of the matter you might also want to seek support sometimes. That support is religious support. It can be a family and friends support. Sometimes some people don't want to be alone. That's okay it's Takeda. Don't WANNA be alone seek out the people that you respect and want to be around. Seek those people out who have that encouraging word and if someone's is coming to you be that encouraging shoulder for them to cry on be that person that they can go to have that encouraging word and sometimes you don't even have to say anything sometimes There's always this push to say something you know to make the pain go away but sometimes just listening to them. Let him cry just wiping their tears and just being Sympathetic shoulder for them to cry on. Sometimes that's just enough and Let me just finish this off with saying sometimes if the grief can last too long then we can get in fall into depression so just keep an eye on that and If you have a loved one who is going through some type of mourning process assis or through the grieving process. A let them go through it but Just keep an eye out for it in case it goes a little too long in they slip into depression where they don't ever want to go back to work or maybe they don't want to Go back to their normal daily activities right eventually. We have to get back to living. And that's that seems harsh but it's true we have to go back to living those loved ones if they really loved us and we we really loved them they would understand that you have to get back to living at some point at some place in time. We have to get back to daily routines and things as normal. But in the meantime don't be afraid to grieve and to mourn into go through that process the best that you can don't be afraid to cry so we all know about the five the stages of grief right we have. I The denial. I can't believe this loved one is gone something like that. We can be mad that the next stage would be anger I mad about what's going on young. Be Mad at God or mad at the higher power. Whatever you call that that this thing was going on the next phase will be bargaining bargaining? I'll do anything to get this person back in my life. God if I can just have a few more minutes just one more day with person depression. That's that's the point where we talked about before where we're just too sad to get anything done You know we can't get back to work. We can't get back to functioning normally and then of course black lace is acceptance this acceptance. Is You know just a place where we need to get to in all of our lives. Won't we deal with grief and with loss the place where we are at peace with what happened. We may never like it. We may not accept it as as something that we take positive additive but we understand that has happened and we understand that we need to pick ourselves up if you will dust ourselves off and keep going on so i. I know it's hard I know it's tough To those people who have lost people during this holiday season my condolences to you as I said I lost one of my own family members verse He will be missed in DUB. We're going to go through the process next week. We'll be coming back at you going to be continuing with our homework and with our homework assignments you know as we talked about What do you WanNa do following homework assignment? was you know what stopping you. The homework for this week is as we go into the new year. What are you new year's plans? I'm not talking about resolutions that we all come up with and we quit two weeks after into the month. But what are we really going to do it. In order to make is better. How about this as a homework assignment? Going forward for twenty twenty as we go into the new year. How about We make sure that we give those people in our lives the flowers while they can smell them. How about we do that? How if we could all do that? We're going to a new year. How `Bout we really let? Go those grudges. Let go those grievances. Let go those hurts and pains and let's try to make twenty twenty a better year emotionally emotionally for us as we all know that we are not guaranteed to be here for a very long period of time so if we can just make sure that we are going to make sure that this year that the next year twenty twenty as a better year than it was right. Get rid of those of all that baggage. It's not worth it We're only here for short period of time and his no sense in being mad and angry and not talking to people for long periods of time. So those family members that you're not communicating with how much communicate with them. You don't have to be around them. I'm not saying that I have to be around them all the time but I am saying. Did you. Not to hold grudges. I am saying that so they try to make that a homework assignment for all of us as we go forward. So let's get into the monthly rap as usual. There's a lot of different stories though we we could talk about. I can't discuss every single story out there but the major stories I think our talking about I wanNA talk about. Is the Michael Bell Story Guys. Go back and listen to the Michael Bell Story on the PODCAST. It was an episode that I called Culture of corruption Michael Bell Senior. His son Michael Bell L.. Junior was killed by the Kenosha. Wisconsin Police Department ever since two thousand four he has been on a crusade to get justice into find out the truth and for the For for him to find out the truth and for the Kenosha Police Department in Kenosha Wisconsin Community to find out the truth behind what happened to his son. Well he and and His team had submitted about fifteen hundred page document to the mayor's office to the powers that be within Wisconsin and the mayor there mayor enter into Romanian him saying that name right. Anti Roman A. N. T. A. R. A. M. A.. The end quickly dismissed the bell family. Fifteen hundred page complaint regarding the death of Michael Bell Junior so Michael Bell seniors continuing the fight the fight. Apparently the mayor there is not going along with the findings of the fifteen hundred. Page report. so I do plan to reach out to Michael Bell senior again to seal become back on the podcast. See what's is going to be going on from this point. The mayor has refused to has dismissed it. So what's the plant go to any higher ups Any further lawsuits. And just so we'll see what's going on with that so stay tune with that particular story I think in a very curious oriented. According to my mind. Is that the Austin. Police Department is going to be suspending some training because of one of the the cadets there as alleged some racism you know I get tired of these racism claims by police officers now cadets. I always believe what's going on in newspaper articles but this comes from the statesman dot com posted a December second twenty nineteen training halt amid racism pro would affect one police cadets class next year COUNCILMEMBER says So apparently apparently somebody on this In the police academy they're claiming that they're systematic racism going on the Austin Police Department and and because of this they're gonNA be suspending training and The going to be doing an investigation discipline the article anonymous complaints publicized in early November accused accused former assistant chief just newsom of using racist language to refer to President Barack Obama former COUNCILMEMBER or a Houston former assistant and chief. Frank Dixon into Boris. Climb to the highest ranks Awesome Police Department newsom abruptly retired shortly before the complaints were circulated when people retire. That's always some kind of sign that something's going on Sunday You know so you know this this whole thing that what what people are saying in the dark and when they're When they don't think that anyone's listening and they don't think they're being recorded is really come to light in? It's really disturbing and truly disgusting lasting that we had to continue to deal with this. You know if any of this is true. So obviously they're going to be doing it up probe down in Austin Texas to see what's going on here but We'll see continuing. What the article? Since those documents were made public city leaders had been wrestling with how best to investigate and addressed the alleged culture of racism. Isn't that allow newsom to rise the highest levels of the force So we gotta continue on with that and another similar story and other high ranking official in Florida was overheard on tape body cam footage telling her subordinates to pull over a black man and act to like a Neo Nazi white supremacist. And all that kind of crazy nonsense so I I. I listened to the tape as well. I think that you all should listen into the tape as well in the sense that I get from this officer from this captain in our reloaded from it before I get into but I do want to kind of paint the picture a little bit what. I think that the captain was saying is that I want you to treat this man in a fairly firm rough manner right in order to get him to comply now I lament her choice of words and saying that. Treat him as a racist cop at clear league with the climate that were that were living. We should not be okay with that and let me just say for the record. I'm not okay with that but I think that that was her purpose and her point now whether she really harbors racist animus towards any other people. I certainly don't know. Oh I don't know the lady but I don't know the police captain but I think that that was her purpose and point in saying that so just a little bit from this. The head of the Monroe Enro- county sheriff's Officer Office Major Crimes Unit was relieved of her command this week following the release of an audio recording. In which is heard ordering one of her officers to pull over a black man who is a suspect in a key west murder and act like a white supremacy neo Nazi cop to get information from him Monroe. Sheriff Rick Ramsey pulled Captain Penny Phelps. That's the woman who made made the statements from the late two twenty seventeen scene case in October when he became aware of the recording which is agency turn over to defense attorneys. He also initiated in internal affairs probe into helps conduct which she had in the investigation into the so-called treehouse. Murder which happened November. Seventeen twenty seventeen on stock island so this is an old case. This information was turned over to the defense attorney. And so this twenty nineteen now right. So it's it's two years later when we're hearing about the story so once again you know. What's the news? Media gets gets wind of this kind of stuff on obviously put it out in into the ether to stoke the flames of everything now clearly clearly. This woman should not have made that but I think once again like I said I think that the reason that she said it is because she wants to be to create this intimidating presence For this officer. She wanted the officer to create an intimidating presence so that the suspect in the case would be so intimidated and be willing to give up the information essentially really right. There's different techniques and tactics officers will use in order to elicit information from people and one of them that works many times is that intimidation factor her and so this is one of the factors which she was I think was trying to Get get to the point of. What's curious is that the sheriff knew about about this two years ago and didn't do anything about until twenty nineteen now that is curious and that does present a problem for the sheriff and him not doing what he should have done when he first became aware of this in twenty seventeen continuing with the article? Phelps was removed from her post as head of the major crimes and narcotics on Wednesday. According to paper work released used to the Miami Herald on Saturday Ramsey said it was too early investigation to come on whether helps could lose her job so this sheriff ariff sat in this information for two years then once it comes to light once a Miami Herald gets a hold of it and that's the article where Marine is from the Miami Herald Dot Com. Once they get a hold of it then everything blows up and now he's got to put this. He's got to relieve her of command and all that kind of stuff. If there's any supervisors out there. We're who are listening to managers heads of departments. You GotTa do what you gotTa do. You GotTa do it in. This is part of the problem. That really hampers the relationship between the community and the public public. They don't feel as if there's any trust if you come across on the happens to you. You got a handle that stuff immediately. There's no what are you waiting. Two years for before it becomes out until the OPIOID and if you took tell people about things when they happen we could deal with the public would have more faith in your institution in your organization if you were up front and honest about it. This is the problem that we had the lack of transparency sitting on something for two years until the newspaper gets a hold hold of it is a problem continuing with the same line of reasoning in Temple Texas. There was a man who is just shot by police. This comes comes from K.. C. E. N. T. V. dot com. And this is called. The `Artemis Articles Family seeks answers. After son killed an officer involved shooting right. This this is temple Texas. Says he's twenty eight years old early in the month of December. One of the biggest problems is that is with this is we. Don't even know what happened. I've heard news. Reports demand. went out about one. Thirty in the morning The Temple Police Department show up at his house and tell them me. Tell the family that the man is dead. The only thing that they understand is that he had an interaction with the police officer and that he that he is now deceased According to articles that I've have read the Tampa. Police Department is not releasing any information they are saying to contact the Texas Rangers who have taken over the investigation and the Texas Rangers are not releasing any information so this family according to K. C. E. N. T. dot com article as well as the VK W T X DOT COM article There's no information coming out right. There's an attorney there. Lee Merritt representing the family of this Michael Nickel Dean the deceased man and so the. The family doesn't know what happened was at a traffic stop was the man. Shoplifting was the main just walking down. The street was what what caused interaction between him. The police police have not informed. The family of what's going on in this again creates the problems between the police and the community no transparency. At least the officers should give press conferences. The what happened and many of these places many of these laws within offend people's jurisdictions the laws are the ones that are pro prohibiting police departments from releasing any information in so I I would say that if you live in a jurisdiction where it is forbidden by law that police departments shed light on the and the the ongoing investigation. Then you should be petitioning that the laws change at least some type of press conference to give a least the dates the Times. Sometimes the the name of an officer The circumstances behind it. What's going on In if obviously there's some certain sensitive information that cannot or should not be released because of the ongoing investigation right names of suspects and things like that then obviously That information should be kept secretive to to to a certain degree but whatever information can be released should be released and it should be released in a fairly timely manner. The state's attorney in Cook County. Kim Fox's begin the process of of expunging. The names people who have been have marijuana convictions. Don't Miss Fox has been catching a lot of flack for her stance on a number of things the way she handled the Jesse slowly or as or as a As they sell says Giusti's moulay smooth the way that she has handled that case Regard regardless I think that if the legalization of marijuana is a growing trend in an is being hotly debated in Illinois that I think that if it's going to be legalized and people making taking money from it with the growing hemp farms and CBD farms and and all this Kinda stuff then why should people have their lives trashed and destroyed and ruined because because they have these convictions for marijuana on their records. So I am in in that case in that manner told him in favor of the expunging of criminal records of people who have been convicted. The marijuana sold in marijuana crimes so I think that that's a very vital thing and I think that's a very good thing for Kim Fox in Maryland Moesby done in Baltimore or in any other states turning across the country who is deciding now that that arresting charging prosecuting people for small possessions of marijuana in or past marijuana convictions should have their records expunged in keep in mind. It's not just a herd. That's doing right. She's presenting this information to judges and the judges are also agreeing that these people should have their records expunged so in New Jersey. There was a shootout. We all may have heard about that when a couple couple of I believe there were African Americans Went into a Jewish community into a grocery store and start a blazing away in Jewish Communities Grocery store tragic tragic Should not have happened. Mentally disturbed people terrorist acts. Whatever it was should not be doing this condemn this all the way around? Before before they went to the grocery store they shot up a police officer a thirty nine year old detective from Jersey City Police Department Dot Joseph Seals. He he was killed. You know this is just a tragic tragic incident so the officers dead three civilians dead. That two two suspects are dead. Once again we gotta take a look at his gun debate. How they get these guns? Do they have anything in their background. That were they part of any black. Supremacist groups we're not just going to talk about the white supremacist groups and the negative away but also have to talk about black supremacist groups or any type of terrorist group so thoughts surly and concerns. Go out to this family of the detective and also to the family of a any family members of the Jewish grocery stores occupants keeping with the same line of thought you know we had the training at the military base. He mounted a deadly attack. Members of the Saudi Air Force killed three people at the Naval Air Base in Pensacola Florida. So you know this. This is crazy stuff. You know who knows what's going on. Obviously that's going to hurt the the relationships between the Saudi Air Force in the United States Air Force or nights states naval force the United States military. Obviously I'm sure there's already the vetting process for who can be accepted here But that's just going to continue to grow the concerns about the that people have or other people right. People have for other people for others. Brian put that in quotation marks others. Write these others ride the Saudis these black people these Jewish people these white people. You know these others we gotta get into our minds all one human family in until we get that reminds. You know we're GONNA continue to look at people through the xenophobic land. We're GONNA continue to her people. Shoot people lie to people to see people and think that other people are the cause of your problems. If you've living in the black community you think Jewish people all of the reason that you're living in in depressed conditions than you're wrong then you're wrong right. Look at we have to look at ourselves and say what is that we can do about ourselves in order to make ourselves better few come over to this country from another country. And you are looking at whatever's going on and you want to take your anger your frustration. Asian out on the Americans and shooting up their military bases. What good do you think that's going to? What is the end result of that right? Terroristic acts don't work terroristic Acts don't work. I wish that people would get that through their heads. One of the last things I want to talk about is I read. two-star heard about two stories in this December twenty nineteen about people who were hacking into security cameras. Baby monitors things like that. So if you have one of he's I I would suggest that you really if you have some kind of baby monitoring system or even a Wi fi digital nanny cam or anything like that that where people can see your child to see into your home or listen to your child to listen to your home. I really highly suggested you take any in all precautions that you look this information to due to make sure that your home is secure. Do some research on the Internet and figure out what you can do to keep your family safe so NBC News Public. Something talking about this phenomenon actually was back in November But I heard another story in December talking about this phenomenon in which people were hacking into nanny any cans baby camps baby monitors whatever you WanNa call them and speaking to the child looking at the child and all that kind of crazy stuff so do what you gotTa do to make. Sure that your home secured make she she contact your ISP. Your Internet service provider. See if they got some extra firewalls whatever they have to make sure that you and your family are safe. Not only this holiday season going into twenty twenty in the last story that I wanNA give you guys comes in the world from what the what just law enforcement sometimes we do the craziest and silliest things so check this story out this comes from the Washington Post and the says a deputy Wti burglarized grieving families homes during funerals officials. Say Then Khokar workers recognized her. So essentially. This woman Janelle Greco correct. I believe I spelling her name saying her name. Right G. E. R. I C. K. E. Twenty nine years old was charged with felony burglary. She was a A corrections officer in Wisconsin. So she would what she would do as she would go over the obituaries. Learn when funerals were taking place place and then burglarize homes when the families were at the burglary When the families were at their funeral so I gotta regional bit of this? What was going China once again from the Washington Post a criminal complaint from the Washington Department of Justice Lists Seven instances between February twenty eighteen and June twenty nineteen where the former deputy successfully broke into a strangers home or was spotted lurking outside houses that she had reason to believe would be empty if for calculations turned out to be wrong state? Investigators say directly would quickly make up a story when one family returned home from a funeral and found her standing in their kitchen she. She claimed that she had been hired to clean the house on multiple occasions. She explained that she was trying to pick up furniture or baby goods. She arranged to buy facebook marketplace and then she said she must have written down the wrong address and so does she lives in a town where there is about eight thousand people so again back to the article on Halloween last year. Prosecutors say a couple of getting ready to go trick or treating notice. They woman standing on their patio appearing into their house through the door when the wife life approached she realized that the stranger was actually directed correctly. Who worked for with her father at the Jefferson County sheriff's office and also belong to his bowling bowling team? I didn't know this was your house. Greg allegedly told woman she explained. She was trying to buy a shelf that she had seen facebook marketplace giving being a name and address that the couple did not recognize then in January authority. Say He's one of direct. Co workers spotted her while patrol Jefferson Jefferson County Sheriff's department. David Doron had been driving. Pass a home. Beloved local firefighter who was fatally hit by a car while trying to rescue a stranded motorists Annette and was surprised to see someone standing on the front porch of his memorial home taking place when he stopped he realized that it was directly. who was pregnant at the time? She claimed claim that she was trying to buy us baby gear of facebook marketplace and had no idea. She was actually in the deceased firefighters house. So this is what this woman. When this this law enforcement official a former law enforcement official would do? She would burglarize people's homes when they were away are going trick or treating or just just craziness I mean I. I would assume that in her line of where she had access to overtime or whatever so who knows what was going on ladies mind but Just an absolutely absolutely absolutely crazy story. So That's it ladies and gentlemen that's it for the month. I really hope that As we close out twenty nineteen that you guys would really consider. We talked about before making sure that twenty twenty is going to be better than twenty nineteen. Whatever your goals are as far as you know your diet? Your exercise is your health. Your family relationships that you really take the steps towards the right direction to make sure that those things are going the way that they should be going give people their flowers while they can smell them make your life make it the best it can be invested. It should be said goals and dreams that a realistic right. Sometimes things that are just unrealistic in a one of the best pieces of advice that I heard and I think that this can can really go towards a number of different things. Is that if you change something small about your life life you know. People make these drastic changes in the reason that they do not work as because they're too drastic too big and they cannot be sustained so what people people should do as they should change something small about their life. If every morning you go to your local donut shop right and you get a coffee with a donut. Well if you replace that donut with an apple then you made a you made a really big significant change in calories and all that kind of stuff and so for launch If you've always eating chips for your salad or with the you know if you're always ate a burger chain to to a salad or banana right small incremental changes which can be sold lasting and I think that not only am I talking about Diet but just getting up going for a walk calling someone that you haven't called in a while loving someone one just taking the small steps right so think about what whatever big thing you WanNa do and take the small step to get there right if you WANNA lose ten pounds a month. which is doable? It had to start small and so it starts right would ex- a little bit of Diet little bit exercise. You wanted to go for an hour walk but just fourteen take a walk right park a little bit farther away from the convenience store or from the grocery store and walked through the parking lot that that gives. Did you a little more exercise so start off small and then worked towards those bigger things. And so. That's what I want us all to focus on for twenty twenty. Thank you so much for tuning coming in and I hope that you are learning something that we are taking this ride along together in. Remember for a homework assignment is just to make sure that we are. You're giving those roses those flowers to people while they can smell the mixed. Make time for this next year to build those relationships to restore those relationships nations ships into appreciate people And if you had to cut people off the nuts fine too but I'm asking you not to harbour any ill will towards people because that can be talks just as toxic. DOC suggest as well Make sure that we celebrate life so celebrate life in twenty twenty in this holiday season as we bring in New Year celebrate life. And that's it ladies and gentlemen. Please make sure that you rate subscribe and share. We still have a lot of great episodes coming up a lot of great interviews and we're going to continue to build this relationship between the police and the public no matter how hard people try to go opposite direction. We're going to pull them in the right direction right so in the meantime here's a second homework assignment. Check on to see wherever you live at. What are the laws US related to the police department releasing information? If you live in a place where it's actually illegal state law right. These are legislatures. Were passing these laws trying to make sure that trying to make sure for whatever reason that Officers or police departments do not release information. Then see what you can do to go about changing laws find out. Is that the law. Find out why. That's law maybe. There's a good reason for it. I would highly doubt because I think that transparency is the key. But if that's the way then see see what you can do. In order to write your elected officials to see how we go about changing that law so we can get transparency. We that's what we want is transparency. Yeah so that's at latest gentlemen.

"Thanks for joining us at the business growth cafe where each week we select from a menu of topics for a focused discussion with an industry expert to provide insights that can impact Your Business's growth with your host Angelo Ponzi I._M.. Angelo Ponzi your host here at the Business Growth Cafe and thank you for joining US each week we select from a menu of topics that can impact business growth to discuss with experts from a wide variety of disciplines and today the Kathy. I'm excited have Don Reese C._E._O.. Of the wooden floor a Marcelo Rios Faust C._E._O.. Of Human options to discuss how strategy financial stability and leadership of nonprofits are are essential to ensure the long term success I in growth dawn Mazzola. Welcome thank you for having before we start. I'll go with Don. I want to talk a little bit about yourself and about your nonprofit create. Thank you Angela again for the opportunity a little bit about myself I started the first part of my career career and the management consulting field with <hes> work in the high tech sector. I had this incredible opportunity work. With a visionary management grew with time his name was randall multi his past but he really believed in giving back to the community. So when I was was my early twenties I served on the board of directors for a Symphony Board and also health and Human Services for Cam and then also I started a nonprofit with him in the night in the nineteen ninety s and so with that really gave me of kind of I believe it's my passion and purpose for the work. I do now the wooden floor because I'm able to bring arts education human service to help low income youth move forward so the wooden floor is at Creative Development Organization annually provides today four hundred seventy five young people with a rigorous dance education program that we combine with Academics College Readiness in Social Services and I'm happy to say that this is our fifteenth year in a row in two thousand eighteen that we are on track to have one hundred percent of our students graduate high school in immediately role in higher education circles and gratuities. Thank you to do that over fifteen years and in consecutive as we feel it's really honor and privilege with our children then go to become great adults so we also have students now in college in universities all over the country. They've attended everything from Wellesley to N._Y._U.. To Cornell to our local community college which we believe is a really great pathway for many children and so the two locations in Santa Ana today when mile apart so we call it a connected campus and then we're also growing locally locally and nationally at the same time we have our first national partner in Washington D._C.. Called City dance and they're now implementing our model here under licence structure which we'll talk about in a little bit from caustic doesn't wonderful remixed have next so I feel like I grew up in the nonprofit industry. I started my nonprofit career. When I was in my early twenties I was working at toys R us and going to school and decided? I didn't have enough to do that. The time end I took on an internship and I was began. I began working at a nonprofit that was working with at risk kids and I knew at that point that that was definitely something I wanted to do with my career long term the business element always spoke to marry was really passionate about the work of his joining US MS in a management role. There fit knew that I wanted to combine both my ability to be a business leader and my heart and do something that was really meaningful so over the last twenty years I've really been able to look and find my path to what I'm currently doing today. I have the great honor of being the C._E._O.. C._E._O.. Of Human Options which is a nonprofit here ninety county that's been around for nearly forty years it was founded really with the vision that no woman our child should ever be afraid in their own home and be continued that vision moving forward and what we've really looked at as an organization station is really igniting social change in this county and getting this county in particular to really recognize relationship violence as an issue that impacts everybody and making sure that we're educating and advocating for those affected by both victims and survivors and empowering the survivors to make a change in to heal on the path such a great honor to be here. Thank you from biting. Absolutely I think this is a great topic for discussion as I think I mentioned prior to coming in we've obviously been promoting this event and we have gotten a lot of likes and views and re purposes on Lincoln so this is obviously a lot of folks are waiting to hear this conversation one of the things I've heard from both of you. It's really about that passion and commitment. I think that that kind of is at the heart I would have to believe of Fennelly as leadership of a nonprofit but those that that are you know under your pure view and working for you as well as people like myself that are might be helping out or donors so people come to you with that passion and that fire like you have or the come with curiosity and in then they evolve into really wanting to be part of this who has to take this Lenny Marcella. It's a great question at human options we have the benefit and a really having people come to us with passion and a connection to what we're doing and it's interesting because that connection continues to grow and gone yes there's a little bit of curiosity I think in the beginning but that curiosity really stems from like a heart connection and really valuing individuals and knowing that they wanna make a difference and so we're fortunate at the organization where everybody from our finance person to our direct service person has a connection to the mission and really knows that this is somewhere they want I._B._M.. Says somewhere they want to create change Don I would just add also the way that we also today agree everything with Mercilus but also the way we do today. especially with our growth right now is that we wanted also to make sure that we had our culture transcend and so we've actually identified a profile of those employees potentials that come through the wooden floor. We look at mission driven business minded people. We look for people that have a passion for a I'm making a change in young people's lives like Marcella said that is really where it starts mission and passion for if you don't have that energy. It's not a good fit for the organization. We we know that we're driving social change. We're making a difference then in young people's lives and we need people that are all in it to win it so that's really our philosophy so if you're not there's lots of organizations find your passion and purpose in you know not all nonprofits for everybody. Not every mission is for everybody. Let's help you if if it's not a good fit let's help you find that right fit for yourself of great advice that really is because in dealing with anything and you know even dealing with a client for example. If it's not the right fit it gets beyond just a paycheck. If you will right it's it has to have a relationship you want to have that passion of doing well for someone and <hes> so that becomes very crucial and as a as a business to to add to that is just we then also operate in a way to take care of people make sure that <hes> great benefits. Another nonprofits are could have known for you know. Maybe maybe being a little slide on this things. Our Board of directors especially in the recession didn't make any cuts to salaries on because they know where the critical link those we serve from our children and our families and so we start to struggle a very high stewardship level we don't have debt or anything like that but it's we just tune away to take care of our people to okay so I asked this question of all my guests and usually start off with it so this is about a business business strategies. She's we're talking about the business of nonprofit so ultimately it's about growth and and surviving and thriving so what keeps you up at night when you're thinking about that aspect of go back to you with the wooden floor so before I mean I'm very fortunate to work at the in Florida say that all the time the waiver ran from a structural level and we have something called forward funding that we fund raise funds eight minutes in advance of a new fiscal year start and so we calendar for fiscal year here that runs September one to August thirty when I say that because most nonprofits to struggle just that financial unknown and for the organization if we continue to raise funds at at or above the same level we're gonna be okay because we always have a reserve nar funds so when you kind of take within raising the typical answer we were talking about <hes> Maryland. I talked it really gets down to. I interviewed C._E._O.'s in the number one thing that they were concerned with with growing and that's really where I am today. It's how do you maintain culture over over the organization at both locations or across the nation with your partners. How do you maintain that in for us? We've identified that our culture aspect is all about high quality and making sure that we're learning as an organization and making sure that I'm continuing continuing communicating that the big vision the why we're doing what we're doing and so making sure everybody is on board with that. They're transcending the other locations. They're monitoring the way we do of course correcting doing things because once your culture slips lips the normally say it eats strategy so it's I tell you the same thing I think for me it's really at the same in terms of culture you have to really drive your values and really make sure that you're living out the values in the way that was set forth in the vision and one of the things that we've really been spending time intentionally on his talking about with the values look like in our organization not just values across from peer to peer but values with our customer base which is our stakeholders both donor and our and our clients really. How are we living those values and asking asking questions about the values that may be don't really fit or feel a little uncomfortable? Some of them are new to the big ones that we've been really implementing or curiosity an ingenuity right as an expert. I mean we've been in the field of domestic relationship balance for almost forty years which makes us an expert in what we do and yet we have to enter into this with curiosity. It's a really understanding that our marketplace whether it be our clients and our donors need information and if we just have the expert hat on there we're not really learning from them and ingenuity is now there are many more barriers to accessing services. There's barriers to getting out of abusive relationships in it could be housing it could be employment to be a myriad of things and so we really have to think about creative ways in enrich the approach this issue and so for for us. It's when you think about that that takes a very special talent pool which is critical. It's finding the right person not just in terms of your culture but are the values but also that has the skill set and the ability to continue to fall and that they're open to that. I think that's that's one of the things I think about all the time like when we have key staff. How do we keep them engaged? How do we keep them motivated and then? How do we pay them? What they're worth while employees I mean that's that's the challenge all over the place now especially with low unemployment rate? It we have the same as in keeping people engaged in statistics will show that I think it's eighty five percent of the American workforce is either unhappier disengage so finding that balance and finding that passion that word we used earlier within those the people that really wanna come every day and be committed to driving forward and we just can really quick is rat also when I was on the critical mass program with Rick Ramsey he asked at the end of it what was my guiding principle and I've taken that now throughout the whole organization position we now have codified that and I think having your values your principles really codified so you really lead the organization than what happens as you scale growth. Everybody just gets on board because they understand what you're which are all about well this guy in that unlike any business right and providing leadership in making sure that you've got by not only from the top of you two are the C._e._O.'s in the leaders but making sure that the rank and file if you will for lack of better term are on board understand what you're doing doing and are committed to US versus they walk down the hallway and they read something they don't understand it right so it really getting that buy in and that I think rick passionate commitment so we think about or at least I think about nonprofits you know face the fundamental business challenge. I mean there nonprofits correct in most I believe is number might be a little off but one point five million nonprofits in the U._S.. Don't support themselves to competing like a regular business. It's about raising funds getting donations. The problem then with a typical local nonprofit business model becomes the night use the phrase becomes dependent that we're going to debate that a little bit but the you know the question then is truly a nonprofit. Can you innovate. How do you innovate? How do you get away from this dependence and you probably going to school me in this anyway? Let's go ahead and wants to go. I I'm fired up it. Just fit which I love the question you know so yes. I'll just start up. We innovate <hes> we have to innovate to stay relevant. The wooden floor has been around since nineteen eighty-three celebrate our thirty six year every almost five to ten years. You see a new phase little for because of innovation today. We actually put it in design thinking where we actually put into practice so so it's planning execution piloting do a lot of piloting because we don't always have those risks dollars to go to kind of play big sometimes but we find through piloting that we find great success that actually turned into major programs to dependency dependency. I think it's this fluidity of relationship that <hes> we believe that we're an extension of the supporters passions and purposes well. They WANNA give back to the community so those who can give larger gifts you know we're just so grateful grateful and also those who give just what they can. We're so grateful in so Mitch is making sure that we're lighting our mission. Our own impacted. We're having our communicating to our supporters. Gets them excited about helping us in more ways. Listen to we do look at diversification of revenue we look at the way we're structured on a budget basis. We have an endowment fund and we also have planned giving and that gives us what I call. The four pillars of financial sustainability that no one pillar lers should rob right and so that is a leader in a nonprofit we work at our craft every day and so it gives us that confidence to embrace that dependency. It's the old adage not putting all your eggs in one basket business. So you're like no one customer. Should you'll be my Co.. I have an executive coach said euboea captured vendor because you know they're gonNA take you over you know. If you know ninety percent of you I I agree. I think I think maybe rather than dependency looking at it as how you get investors stirs right and how you sell the investment that they're making in society and in the future and in your mission and how that that advances and so you constantly have to really as you think about it from an investment perspective. It's much easier to sort of break out of that idea of Oh my gosh gosh it's scarcity right 'cause dependency is that scarcity peace and you really have to think abundantly because what we are really marketing and selling is the possibility right human arsons for selling the possibility of a violence free life unhealthy relationships. That's what we're selling because we believe we can make that possible and then there's people that really invest in that and they buy in and they become part of that vision for part of that mission and so to talk about it in terms of dependence really feeds into that idea of scarcity. Yes we have these needs and I agree with diversified funding in that's that's all very important and it's also very important to know that what we are doing is changing lives right and so really the product that we're selling is a change life Craig Point. Let's continue that if you think about forty years seven years you you've been around what's been your your biggest challenge in and that'll your biggest challenge for both of you but are these similar challenges that you see across the board for nonprofits Marcella Yeah I I think in Pathak world specifically in at hume options in and in the field of <hes> relationship parents in domestic violence. There's this continuous swing between prevention strategies and intervention strategies and there's investment in either prevention because that becomes the thing that we're all focused on our investment in intervention and really I I think what it what it is is really beginning to help educate that it's not one or the other but it's both and being able to hold both of those things because when you do that then again we're able to really look across the spectrum we at the organization have talked about all our interventions and specifically when we talk about relationship violence or domestic balancers very skewed view of what that means it's well my gosh that's the shelter based program and so really learning how to talk about what we do beyond shelter doors and really being able to talk about it with removing stigma and it's a very uncomfortable topic and so I would say challenges really hard. We really tell the story of our organization. Tell the story of the impact that we're having and more importantly tell the story of victims and survivors and the chains. That's it's possible when somebody invests in them and I would I come when I thought of this question. It was really around branding and marketing the traditionally branding marketing falls under what is called overhead in the nonprofit sector and a lot of health sector but in our sector negative and so what we're doing constantly is <hes> as you talked about earlier with raising is how do you connect others to a growing mission to make sure that people understand that you're not the organization you are in the past. You have these big bold visions for what you're doing today that you're evolving as any business evolves and so you have to invest in branding marketing and a lot of times you have to to find creative ways to do that so it's always tiger mission just having an ad on the wooden floor out there just our name would do nothing for us but if we tied to emission retired to a story of a student we tied it that way and we invested in having a board also that. Invest in that there's this ripple effect from that you know it out in the Orange County Business Journal for instance then we're lazy too and then you see and then you see an article I was able to write because of that telling our story in in a different way and then also you see then invitation coming out in you but she seek oh my friends and being invited to that event. It's his langer push it a lot of nonprofits if they don't think through that they normally also don't have staff who outside of development team who actually she'll have marketing teams and so those organizations like ourselves know the value of having a director of marketing. You know we have a design now. An associate is like that's how we're also now doing social media like you're talking about. We're able to also make a difference there. Believe it or that were already almost come into an end blown by I wonder if we can touch and make it a some short comments but I believe I mean both of you have boards I think fairly extensive boards and an end so I I'm very passionate about the involvement of aboard being active and not passive for nonprofits how important it is for them to have a board and more importantly an active board to help you guys achieve your mission. There help them achieve their man. I think having an active board is critical number. One is to be able to get the message out outnumber to be able to make those connections and really being intentional about who is on your board because you need a diverse group of individuals not just diversity in the traditional sense but diversity in terms of thought leadership and so you need people who have an entrepreneurial neuro spirit and those that have a very strategic way of thinking about things to create some synergy and then create those connections in the community so they are the ambassadors they are the ones that are telling the story and they are. I think in a lot of ways of the most important Brown representation presentation that we have just add that I look at them as partners in our work so they're my thought partners in our organizations thought partners we at the wooden floor. I think it's different there. So there's different life cycles nonprofits in so you're an emerging nonprofit buffets volunteer driven board you know they're very hands on but as you really evolve your organization to where we are today we operate an exceptional level underboard governance centers and it's really around genitive thinking advocacy visibility fundraising bill and am strategy and really today that's where boards need to go and I would encourage all board members to look at their rolls really differently okay well fantastic ball. We come to an end we have. We have okay so the only go go back to you. Why don't you tell the folks so how they can reach you and if they have interested in learning about the wooden floor about you or advice in general my Lincoln is dawn s res and my twitter account as Donna's race you can reach me there through messaging and direct messaging also our website is the wooden floor dot org and I might be really happy to talk to anyone about how I can help them also fulfill their passion and purpose and connect to an organization if not are somewhere or so yeah I- website is W._w._w.?

If you like to watch get ready for death Dixie vis-a-vis Candy Burlesque Performances Chavarria Rope Bondage then you'll dance and aerial shows plus Dj Telephony Mark Levin is there isn't sort of an easy process I can't Google and say show me the career transition process show me the business acquisition process there are and so you started this journey and it was fascinating week in and week out to hear you talk about how you had to discovering yourself can I really do that role Roi when we first met you were in transition you were a longtime consultant who went and told others here's how you fix things here's how you get your business particularly if you're a business owner executive or somebody who works in a business from the man who's done all three and here to tell us about it he survived all of them to the next level and you were very well versed in a variety of tools eos an endless others here assessment tools management tools trying to help things I what I like doing what I didn't wear my frustrations were the it was clear that I wasn't in good employees via kind of assess what you're good at what you like to focus on these the colby assessment and as part of that spill that out some three hundred lives Alex Hey Alex though Paul I'm fascinated I appreciate the opportunity to kind of wrap up our first season here with confidence others and you kind of got this fascination maybe fueled by your move up into the great northwest there that maybe I should try and put my mom which works with a lot of smaller consult consultant groups and helping them evolved their their practice in as it went through that nail how do I do that role and what kind of business would I do it in so summarize a talk about what you learned in that first season here of making that transition it's not just geographically but sort of mentally and professionally yeah it was it was a process in terms of what what kind of verbs anywhere my mouth is and tries to one of the things for myself maybe I should quit being the the golf pro and go are the golf instructor and go out and see if I can be the golf pro back for another installment of confident are oh I the one show you can listen to constantly now you're gonNA walk away with some real return on your investment that good at and what would be fulfilling and high going down the rabbit hole without without Ko l. b. e. running that is correct okay and they went through that process and in had some time just to step back and look at ideas out there but how did you come up with your process what I actually started I've been doing a consulting started strategic coach program specifically knowing where it's going to go and you wanted to do it in a because you're a consultant and you who trained others to do this in some process you tried to put together process one of the things I gathered I think in some ways consultant sometimes some feels like it employed flick speak and because I I've been there I would go in the people would bring me I did a lot of buzz so you brought me in because she thinks I know something and I'm GonNa tell you all these ideas one after another and say no no no no no no I'm like the Mi- here or PR and marketing and that kind of stuff before I get in I was in radio originally got into PR and marketing and then opened this station and I got a consulting because they never listened to me let me what you're GonNa do maybe I can learn from you and if it's yes and let's see if it works but I didn't have that Sadiq Satisfaction braathen well I think from listen she yup Yup Yup you'd never do any of them well either neither case do I feel fulfilled you know I'd like you say if it's no then tell me why before doing the consulting I saw the AD perspective as well but you know when you go full circle especially as when your own company now being in the position I'm in now and seeing it from the other side Lens is like okay it makes a lot more sense even those when I ran a company focus on growing the business in that but overall it's it's the process I went through even before looking at it it buying my own okay in relatively good amortization I just I just worry about the the their ability to come in reclaim implemental these tools doing well but it could do even better and it was kind of reaching some ceilings bottle let me stop Hewlett couple because there's a couple of key things are so I is but also kind of taking a step back and saying all right I can overdo it you even myself permission to to to sequence them for an interesting I got I got half a dozen open projects up all that I found interesting and fascinating but I didn't have to worry about self little crazy in people around me too many things open to many things growing underplayed her right flint which going into this now seeing a lot of opportunities improve the business it like my profile like to assess things to to figure out what what start on but then the fall through and not do everything simultaneously as really helpful now that was one of the things I liked about being a consultant had a PR firm marketing agency I got to work on Anthony and where evaluator all business tools that's been really helpful causes it helped me kind of figure out where do you start is a company I bought done pretty well six or eight or ten or twenty projects all at once depending on the size of my client load how many clients I could handle and I found that interesting I'm dabbling in lots of from the the equity that you've put up here that they they can reclaim those kidneys at some point in time or like you know it's was possessions nine ten there are a lot of very successful business people who have fifty on did hundreds of franchises yeah we're they're not through they maximize the throughput of the store in that and that's that's a different skill set than like a production supervisor versus bartender wasn't there a hated all that stuff you take take a colby assessment you can see you know those are two different profiles and the personal starting restaurant got a got the press release written in the king created the campaign pushed it out the first time and then I wrote off and somebody else's job was to carry it on here so you find that you can things in in keep things the way they are instead of reinventing the wheel so it sounds like you're somewhat in between though you're not starting your own business quickly an entrepreneur has koby assessment has a really high quickstart they'll start new things on musk's startling new things I have a relatively I quit creative you know they're gonNA fight with the franchise Franchisee you're right time WANNA do it this way no that's the way we do it do it this way you've gotta follow follow the program follow them to another level which which adds another level into you've got to come up with some ideas that he didn't see some systems he wasn't aware of some procedures he hadn't put in place I got through the completion of that project it was somebody else's job to carry it on not mine I brought it in I implemented I maybe did the first round chart but also have the same level follow follow through and so I like to follow them up so I started out projects on follow ups I drive carrying 'cause that's what I wasn't I opened bar and restaurant years ago and I found it was really good at building bars and restaurants and getting them approved and coming the concept and kicking them off and getting them the the person who lays out the assembly line in the beginning here in and you can put the person gets into that in there that that wants to be which is great but he can also focus on what he likes to do now instead of focusing on growing the business which when you take methods some people really like following rules they liked the structure like hey I don't I don't have to I don't have to question everything in that I like to take exactly and he he had a brother that successfully grown a business that multiples and of all let's start by e e You went in turn and tried to evaluate who am I okay I guess I'm not a good employees did it say that you are you should start a business these assessment testing let grown maxed out on its size for the owner what they what he felt comfortable with as a company and so you needed to I was telling him hey you need to implement these things or you need to sell it right and he decided you know maybe I should sell it still still helping me the business entrepeneurship me included probably great coming up with ideas passionate about it when we get into it but it's all in our head we do our accounting sure did yeah it said you're not a great employee you're really not shouldn't start your own business okay the way my profile was but part of it but you're trying to tweak you're not trying to just carry on what he did and replicate what he did you're trying to improve it you're trying to take it to in our head we do our processes in her head and it becomes a lifestyle business if you die or leave you nobody can replicate it because it's all within you where the businesses Aku do this process in improve it for next time and improve it and then documented and do it again it's the repeatability of it I find that many started Dr who got the plan the vision is to get you know one of the kidneys released from the League here okay and so we was I idea 's I had proof of concept but I couldn't put it to paper and replicated somewhere else if I wasn't apps is much different than the person who likes to fix everything in the kitchen therapy in the business I'm involved in deals a lot with fast food in it's having the process there but you know that takes cognitive effort to to to things it's emotional and it's trying to figure it out like okay worrying about one that just closed on his thousandth restaurant in he's got to rely it's not all on him you know they're all coming in for scheduling no questions and things like that so obi assessment you can see where someone who's attack who likes to do technical things take things apart put them back together that on the other side of the spectrum of how to think I hated the day to day cleaning the toilets and and fixing them but oven the broken and the mechanical and then making fillion when the person leaves were in trouble right take it takes extra time and effort to build in the process is so it's not dependent on one person and that sort of franchise does people processes work was the big picture with a company where are the bottlenecks instead of just getting the job done well how how is the process running how shoot run he had the emotional aspect of it you gotta talk with people can be patient with them because they might not have that perspective a six pack and a potato that's an Irish seven course meal here and so we realized that if we were going to do another we should build more food into it and and all these things more food and less booze but we all had in these days you know forty different beer handles that was unique and we had the screens all over the place and we had this kind of chain I could never get off the ground and go past one he built two or three and I had them in here a couple years ago he didn't know me at the time but I was very aware of him and you've leveraged both your kidneys to do it both that one of them but both of them you have to put on and they're gonNA get interest rate coming up with a concept all their job is to make sure the the trains run on time your food is ready ninety seconds right here the drive through that they pushed Irish pubs never closed and we thought we had him beat hands down but he and and when I met him I was amazed because he came out of the food and beverage in awesome this other guy did who started this business and you're not necessarily there to just make the trains run on time and get it as efficient as possible that's somebody's already working twelve fourteen hours a day exactly I give you a real tangible example name some names Sarah Twenty years ago built this bar called Kelly macos plus out of this thing and mostly boobs we didn't do the Food Brill and Irish breakfast or Irish me what's the Irish Nutrition Yeah Nice things this guy whoever you bought this business from couldn't do it you're going to try and do it it's it's an ongoing thing at the same time there was a young guy in our radar screen opened up in Long Beach a place called the art house and I went visited very similar to what we were doing in the heat of the moment to rely on people than than the to build the processor right so a people reliant build a business hey if that one had been approached early on the some of these same people and they wish get talk me when you have two or three gone and I could never get there and it was so I even it's tough to get to the point of okay what's happening you know one two three four hours and they kinda go all around circles that can be mentally taxing take me and so there's a real life example that I saw of somebody who didn't have the background so how'd you learn to process how'd you learn to systematize was an Irish pub in mission Viejo was very successful for ten plus years about it was a big thing about five six thousand square feet we were grossing a million truly go to scale and get bigger and turned into multiple unions. I couldn't do this with my restaurant for example I could never build multiple units because I couldn't systematize what we were doing cheers like atmosphere to it and everything a giant neighborhood pub but it was so we both looked and felt like it could be the prototype for a got to be honest I looked at his concept are better ours is better we have more things built into it more elements with Irishness we get Saint Patrick's day and everybody he never really told me how but somehow somebody came to him and taught him or he taught himself how to systematize this thing and that allowed to which allowed four because they've been successful grown gruesome we were successful I agree sixty five percent last year they're like Oh why do we need to change anything as industry he wasn't a businessman he his buddies and he had been bartenders cooks and stuff and he had some money behind him family money so he opened the first one and about the company has as a recording it's almost two months and it's it's getting the team to realize there will will have to evolve which allowed six and when he got up to about two or four that's when the big franchise or somebody came bottom out and took over the concept was proof of concept and all the way to corporate they WANNA know in real time which stores or are struggling and so we help them with that kind of productivity who also help them with audio and video okay the the goal is to double we service two thousand locations a year and what helped roughly what are you service some fried on explaining we undistributed it we're we're at the we're helping them deploy the technology so he's selling the technology different OEM's we help them in realized voice are looking at this business that seventy to eighty percent of of successful Fast Food Stores to get sure driving through a Carl's junior near my house I couldn't understand them they couldn't understand me I wanted to just get up and leave or I could when I pulled up I could see the problem view the processes anybody could do if you follow the real dependent it's dependent on the owner the owner is dot the tentpole it's it's the one that can do I just stores amazing be for the owner in the profitability to the person working there that they can hear easily they can see who's in line with video they're recording everything including when you pull out early when you leave 'cause taken too long that data's in the cloud it's going to the regional manager it's going when you drive up you're you're talking with them there's they're sophisticated communication systems air that break all the time all the time and then there's a timing systems that are in the ground now if not the sooner it's always amazing people are late for a meeting but they had time to stop certain caffeinated beverage her any allowed these stores are twenty thirty years old had a lot of renovations but not necessarily been gutted so sometimes adding new technologies can be difficult but company originally got started just servicing the inner comes for Dr Chris and now it's it's is involved with looking up the guys multitasking and he's trying to make drinks while he's also talking to the next one in line here all of this stuff it's supposed to fast everyone's time crunched rated we will look look at what are they trying to achieve which technologies are out there sometimes they're mandated if there are a certain type of franchise or certain headset you gotta use Oh and how they're engaging with their customers on the front of the house so you just an equipment vendor installing and maintaining this or you setting up the systems that collect the data do you think you could is your goal to take it and turn it into a nationwide thing therefore you gotta have remote systems in place or do you think you can just the opportunity to grow and is it is geographically is it doing more for current customers we've gone open with the technology that they use to engage with their customers in measure their productivity so it'd be like headphones for drive in drive through anytime you they can their customers are having a good experience in ultimately the customer the customer there is getting their cup of joy or bag see that or recognize your license plate and then access the database of okay you've ordered you typically order a number nine yeah but it's it's helping them be more efficient and engage your customer more so there's so their stores are more profitable at the end of day we're trying to make a lot of things helping them with their po s and things like that so is a question of can we do more for our core customer base right and I I see more a setting up systems so that the owners can monitor all the video cameras you know twenty four seven and so it we've got we've been pulled in tweak another you can just double it again do it he couldn't do that's what we're gonNA find out and that's where that's why I'm working with the team on where if I'm let's say I'm a retirement village or something I got all the time in the world to wait for my coffee to come but if I'm trying to get to a meeting Mardi two hours late to I need it right now now is like they use it a lot and they're a tax or explain explain to me the better the neighborhood more technology deployed because if you raise the minimum wage that I'm going to operate with a minimum number of people what's the kiosks right airline industry all right so you've take this over this guy built it successfully it wasn't that it was failing and you thought you could do better so it's already improving but automation to what these were seen as these simple drive throughs somebody's got to install it maintain it and connected to surrender that service than the restaurant easy so yes we're getting to be an automated world and there's like it or not there's no going back so as you at the higher when the drive-thrus not working the more Pistons and they gotta go I have no patience yeah for that for by law they're forced to pay more which we've always seen in Europe is you raise the minimum wage or the defective cost of employment there's in the patients goes down the better the veteran neighborhood you get the the lower the patient was there under more of a time crunch I got four hundred things to do here I can't just sit around I'm not this time of day and that is that what you'd like today while my late father who passed away a year ago joy that's what it is really sort of or the reverse they're not gonNA give them dopamine right there at the reverse they're not leaving pissed off I told you off air here a couple of examples just in my own life train US use kiosks the kiosks are being used by some of the fast food vendors and they're trying technology we're working on some technology customer came in and just lost it and started punching people hitting people over some whatever the whatever they said was the final button that you know the the postal worker syndrome yours is hey how how does the guy who has five McDonald's how does he get the ability to see his cameras in real time which the data available to everybody through the Internet sensors and all these things who's Gonna I'm figuring out what that means well it's really where's where used to say he hated technology and all this change and he said it all started when those darn people got us to pump her own gas you know once we agreed to that together and then collect the data that's the other thing how much big data do you WanNa get into we we just did a show the other day about big data and we're going to have a massive amount of the credit card tact so let's lock down but hey how do we know what's going on and how can we track things because that can also not just to watch the employees no that but I've heard it more and more and that's why when you mentioned all right so you've taken this business over and you bought it out now you don't have any background in technology coming in the fast food world does automation and and who later today so the economically they're gonNA have to pay more bigger franchisers there they guard their data pretty closely and but one of the things we're working a lot with franchisees in the big franchise I think our chance for for Growth GonNa wear where the obstacles are customers are having trouble dealing with outgoing help them solve them the a aviation maintenance company a lot of similarities to this with the technicians in the field as well as technicians fixing equipment but as we've seen there's a lot of customers out there that that links it and having the video coverage video at all times really sure the bank asked that question and I was a cfo fag nearly two thousands for a low voltage company. And so I I it's a load in connect the speakers and and doing this work if you have to or is that unimportant you got people to do that and you're not you don't need to know that franchise over is is locked down their networks because of fear of hacking and so how do you solve those two competing competing issues okay you want voltage type of of work is specialized especially with the with the customer base but had exposed to it nat that Papa Lovers Boutique with treats to keep by going all night buy tickets today before these fell out at stranger tickets dot COM benefiting domestic abuse dependence net the other day eight here's what happened you know the customer went over the counter and struck the employees I feel this more and more upscale places a starbucks near her there was supposedly in color that's a whole nother discussion for me I don't know we used to give coffee away in the old days to keep you around now they charge for the two it's a crazy world that's their core business so sound equipment you weren't an audio visual engineer whatever this unless I don't know you well do you have any of that can you crawl under ah obliterated yeah and there's been stuff people who work in these stories I can tell you stories I mean people lose it something makes them go postal and start shooting in that part of what we do is is that hey for a lot of people just like this is the one thing in their day they that realm learn learn the products in on the technical aspects of it back then and then my experience running ah seventy to eighty percent of business of a fast food store comes from the drive just from the drive through yeah yeah I didn't have that high but I knew it was big in for people I've been out there they're going to be a struggle to get there get there gone day lot vanilla lachey that that was going to be simple and if that doesn't go well the in our at our bench location inside location so I had enough background experience they were willing to accept my kidneys as collateral hopefully not your kid issue dogs is is mortgage okay all right your wife says all right valuated by the F._D._a. this product is not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease that is it a roadblock or helping people creating a culture like hey the roadblocks here's what you can do to around obstacle employs over and over again I want that bathroom spotless and every time I showed up I went right to John's to check them first thing I did and this one manager I had just additions I'll tell everyone to buy toilet brush or it would how do you how do you articulate what bathroom we're trying to get women into this upscale place quickly determine if the bathroom's dirty she ain't coming back ever again matter how nice it looks so I'm emphasized roadblocks are and I'll tell you one that just as a quick example that so had some trouble I was fanatic about keeping the bathrooms clean particularly the women's had hired somebody who was a command and control guy I hadn't been specific enough and I hadn't given him the feeling of authority to go and spend goals here's when you should be talking air conflicts you know having a healthy the regular dialogue that you can do that versus coming to the more fun they had the more stuff they broke through up and did everything and Oh my God I wasn't ready for any of this but one of the lessons that told me I don't know if it's true or not is oh you what I want and I start to go back to clean the toilet worse the toilet brush and he said she didn't tell me via toilet brush I should I don't want to deal with it they got enough in that but if it's if it's clear if it's clear why is do these three functions at the same time you say watch me I can do it all I'm going to show you I'm an an maybe by understanding I can figure out where Shigeto Nagano Irish pub been this'll be fun and oboe let's do it and got some people who friends together and it was everything from all the dealing with employees ahead of the displays looks like blanket grab crowd to literally yeah well as you said there's multiple things in there I hadn't figured out how to be a good manager I hadn't I created a feeling it either hired somebody or created the feeling him that he had to be a robot just do exactly what he's told enough if you really want to be successful these things you gotta know how to do it all doesn't mean you do at all but you when your employees I can't fix that machine I can't get that I sing to work I can't possibly I didn't know that I had to be that specific for silly little bar you know you've got technicians of specific right the or is that just old school paranoia here well it's it's there's a lot there right nightmare dealing with regulations as a nightmare dealing with cities and police Who Watch you like a hawk because you're getting everybody drunk that's a nightmare you know this is an people come in deal with us that was the issue the stupidest that so the SAM's I don't know that I had created an atmosphere where he was afraid to go by anything so I had created this nightmare and and I finally discovered what the problem was is that he didn't have a toilet brush wonder we couldn't clean the toilet so is it important to know everything rule follower are some people are some people aren't in what what are their buttons what are they afraid to do some about the same size about the same kind of profile about the same success one never got past one that was mine and it was to do it and the permission to go buy them what an awful guy I was yeah I mean it's why I'm not it was all is always let me down always dirty was always clogged there was always a problem there and so finally I said in a meeting I said I said come on I'm going to show being more and I didn't really understand I thought I was making myself clear go fix the toilet And he thought he was doing that with the tool what's important and I thought I had I wanted clean toilets but I didn't make it clear to the to do that I hadn't set out a process ought to clean a toilet and the tools necessary Jordan and hey is important and if we have conflict if you don't have the tools you need you know we got we got to talk about that tell me were neck and neck neck and neck exactly you they both were popular places and and and about the same kind of revenue as a crew come in a separate cleaning crew come in every night in cleaning the entire kitchen restaurant so a lot of times you have trouble Bernard House is pretty specific things looked at another business and Y- what I discovered in the business service restaurants Yard House has that's what's been holding up the thing what you told me not to spend money you told me not to do anything you never told me just to do what you tell me to do coke it Gd toilet brush and let's like I was constantly discovering things that were secrets to me they knew but didn't WanNa tell me or wouldn't tell me your couldn't tell me or whatever whatever the problem was so our activity what point between now and doubling our activity is writing on a calendar a big white calendar they carry not to ride with it or carry it through point he cashed out or if you feel has cashed up I marveled because to neighborhood bars and restaurants yeah ray KROC was focused on how do I how do I scale this where the brothers McDonald's we're really were so focused on on one restaurant how to make it crew come in that's all they do is clean in clean it to to to the level we want it cleaned up in New York houses are generally pretty quickly so it didn't matter the cost on that and also I would tend to overload the capabilities versus because that's what I felt was necessary versus now under visit hints all of those I I just I don't know is it important for you know how to crawl fiction yeah there's understanding people's personalities right they purely great and so they they were definitely it's a different level in different personality profiles there and so the ability you know some people just could see the bigger the need to know where they're gonna be right went at some point we're gonNA outgrow that I gotta keep reminding them hey we're not here just to maintain the status quo that yeah there's got to be that nice to say let's say everybody had never worked I said we're not playing I got a secret if you want to go back and Google that old game show and yet I felt a couple of weeks and people in the company are asking a lot about it and I've actually got it took a little longer because the prices were higher than well that's what this young Guy Steel Plant somehow figured out or the people who brought in figured out that's why steel plants a multimillionaire and I'm not you know he figured out how to turn we had let's go back to your journey so you figured out personal s Matosas things like colby anything else to figure out what your strengths were what traps you tend to step into are holding on we were able to service what we have but we're gonna able to service it for the next twenty percent jump awards just too busy in your first year and then four afterwards but had gone up to seventy five hundred and so I look around for what my company could for some of these issues that we're talking about did you see the founder of McDonald's Nope it you should watch that movie the movie right clubmen and he sold them and then I think he had some position in that company and I think it sold a couple of it's continued to grow and go as he set it in motion I don't know how far he ford and look at different styles of of people I think a lot of people don't look around that got they find the system they'll find an import see where my desire to get started on something into fix something in a follow through on it in that could be kind of it at all level my assuming you're using eos you talked about that a lot the entrepreneur operating system. Yeah I am we'll be starting ear thirty five hundred dollars used to be thirty five hundred to five thousand dollars per day they charge you on a per day and you do kind of between four to six you before they're hired you know while they're trained right all the time clean bathrooms clean bathrooms clean bathrooms or women are coming back they start you start either was clean bathrooms are absolutely essential I knew that for my customer yeah right but when people know that when people get that sense in interviews with on our projects in when we're going to be wear it what we do it you in two states we have two offices in two states and we do it in a number Dan hey it's much better to get one thing done then it try five things he had nothing done thing done right exactly all right and what other tools are using now to take this company to the next attracting people like Yeah Hey I get it yeah that's important to me to or repelling people who don't have that value I don't know on a deal with that that's what and I was always fighting that until we started hiring more women I don't know why it didn't occur to us but as we got more women managers the place just suddenly got cleaner 'cause they had that in I ate it at what point is that going to be over well just writing in Pencil and we're going to be somewhere now when we have people that are all over the place and they're on their ipads and things sure in execute on that in the conversations I have with my companies like why do we have to change anything why do we have to even talk about this do you think this is GonNa work if we double similar types status four but I think it it recently sold out to even bigger grow it sold multiple times in the I I don't know exactly what point he sold but it was he built a couple person for a week and she couldn't figure out you know what was that difference in finally there at the airport leaving in the salesperson Russians ordering really helpful when you're talking to your to your manager training bathrooms right it helps you know what's essential for this business to be successful in what you found pharmaceuticals to help their patients because of a personal family issue person had gone through and it was purpose that was driving the sales shares with them how their purpose really is to get the help doctors get the right medical right made a successful

interesting dredge she started looking and looking and she talked to more top performing salespeople she found Rick Ramsey show talking about that keeps become we have two three shows that are us implementers will Chris and our renew both yeah yeah and it was one that was come across a couple of years ago and it was prepared by a consultant who had been a proctor and gamble and was trying to define what and then also had you asked ask people around you for their feedback on that different workbooks to go through questions than that and it could running manage for sparse those are mostly guys they don't care they're slop sloppy th-they're rundown it's cheap beer and the girls with low cut blouses you know that become amazing how how does the customer define it in the book goes through talking about the most successful salespeople Oh you know what your management style is all this stuff that I never thought of I just thought it was gonna be fun to build a bar yeah he's Yukos agitate colby manner and they want to go but I looked around and I'm excited about where we're going to be working with and will have future updates on gets you up in the morning what is that that noble purpose and it's it's hell me to find for my companies like hey we help stores we we were at at at its core we were kind of an Irish pub mixed with the sports bar so a lot of sports bar stuff and a lot of sports bar bartenders and people who rent accompanies define what what is your purpose what are you doing for the what are you helping these customers in customers do that tale ray KROC All Garden Bought Yard House for five hundred thirty five million five did you out father and I would debate in the in the early sixties and early seventies what I'm GonNa do with my life I say Dad I have to find my purpose my passion who am I have to find my lose during the other well you know the the you just made me feel worse here because there was a day and time when when an old the the art house and Kalemie cues the book firm Simon Sinek about people do when people understand the why they'll do they'll do any what more if they understand why I guess contribute Tahu on yeah getting people emotionally vested in in the emotional compensation element is is was my quotes mixed up but he said that but talking about when people are financially invested they want return when they're emotionally invested they wanted is our me what their bosses perception on what's important and then crafting a solution that matches that so you can help them chief there there there's this Hattrup with what Simon Sinica so will known for the videos all over youtube that everybody's quoting all the time the find your Y. Series Yeah Yeah has actually there is the end of this first installment this is the long road you started here without any end in sight that was what was interesting if you go back and listen to this series folks acted different people in got past trump's are you mentioned noble sales purposes that is that just a noble fodder is that a real process now I was it was a book allergies I can come with your your dog is undecided barking hoping that you're gonNA save him from drowning here or there but coordinate their efforts that getting out and interacting with people it's not a bad thing will it'll be curious to me I hope that this is instinct in them wonderful careful I'm gonNA sexist here but I don't get you like you know but anyway yes we we there's and somewhere along the way he said maybe I should apply these to me and then that is an expletive in there and at some point he said maybe I should turn this around and see if I can put it into practice it's I'm tired of telling others how to do it maybe I should see put my money where my mom thanks to keep the employees happy and sister here just they should be happy they have the job no they gotta be more than that they feel connected yeah we talked about the brain grover to just get going here and now I look behind me and in a office tower here there's all sorts of ping pong tables and other take it and Alex's jumped in with both feet into the deep end here and you're swimming without a safety net here whatever other if he said why don't you just go find a job to him it was no time to sit and worry about this he came out of the depression who sell with based off purpose they're really trying to understand what the customer's environment is what their goals are what they're trying to achieve what their fear and it's better to do that taking a step back and looking at it not close up but a little bit far away in allowing some times brainstorm did just sitting in a desk in isn't inherently creative it isn't productive doesn't help t died one of the things I heard was deciding the is one the lattner the the root of it was to kill off and other than just do it every entrepreneurs is just do it at some point in time here but you did this deliberately and carefully yeah I would say really we're Alex has gone and it's fascinating because it's a journey that many of us have taken or would like to take but aren't sure how to take it are afraid take it away there is no option there's no option there's no there's no there's no excuses any other takeaways final slots she said the hardest part of finishing book was knowing which one of your children to kill off reviewed all of his characters as children had carefully cultivated them it wants started with Alex trying to present his consulting practice and the various tools he believed in two other yea the makings a yeah it's got to be successful otherwise it's really good country music with has definitely has drinking do that and I decided it just didn't the size in I couldn't really see myself doing that where I am happy to install it's gotTa Fun installer for that the great faulkner who wrote all these southern novels once I was fascinated by writing took number classes in this and he's reported involved in it somewhere crying in your beer somewhere here well I hope you'll come back at some point in time and give us episode of season two this is kind of like a reality show this is a decide IRA myself back in July twenty eighteen I wanted to get going and I got close onto businesses and I could kinda sense unwritten their whole story and now it's time to cut and the prequel you could but that was that moment I always thought he viewed the Mississippi invest in nobody worried when I got my first job didn't they never come back and said are you happy here and to just get your happy should be happy you got a job when my I financed most of this by escaping California a two well that is true too you know we've had number people who've done that who've is not one of them I spent a lot of time on in a fair amount of money and I haven't regretted either one of those not doing them and I haven't regretted you know obviously cost more for variety of reasons to live here I'd say there's a price to be paid for living in paradise but you know not of all of his view it that way and did not just in the heat of the moment when you're trying to get things done and you're trying to stay one step ahead of things but to step back into to really assess things in Deci the there are people who are moving back into the hinterlands like you did and taking some of that equity from their house and putting it to use for other things here the grease trap business so that's good news any final thoughts words takeaways encouragement to the WanNa leave us with until we meet again south is literally and see if I can do it and if these tools really do yeah my kidneys are dog and your dog right you put all that there for that you didn't know you were gonNA discover in we're entering the J curve of it one of my mentors donate there's a j curve you got through the okay I think that'd be a good time to check in and see where you're at and and I hope I think you will be honest it is it is what she thought what did you discuss they don't review all these creative ideas are child as our dreams then they're not children and one of the things that went through this process I wanted to get going once the giant in the Industry Gimblett they broke off from NPR a great American life and started to do their unpack and I thought well what should we call it they call it start-up and it was all about I'll leave it at that I was doing the last on the list craziness and all the stuff that goes all right well good any idea when we can up

They're they're talking about actually getting his own script on his the TV show is basically saying that it was brainiacs removal of the city that actually caused crypt onto blow up in the first place yeah right sonate and when he came back brainiac wiped out his entire planet no that's what they can do what he does the show or if everybody could do what he does the and they created their own time line at this point it's completely the whole brainiac exists before crypt on destroyed thing that well w well the CW is based at least loosely on on the DC comics so the characters that show up do have there okay so again they're sort of changing things they're completely it could easily be that they had space-faring pulled back and then completely forgot about that part of this Brendan I while Brenda really enjoys I joined as well handmaid's tale though I've got to admit right now you know he does not have a good how does not alternate you're the evil year the evil one evil twin next movie is who he's already because he already has not yeah he's already he's already instead of three one three and while Legion is looking for is very interesting it's weird and Wacky as always I love the first two seasons so much you're doing some weird stuff with the storyline because we've seen other characters get put up on the wall for things that she's done and they know that she's done the ask is local like typical of his race that's hard to say he's a psychopathic and he's the only member of his regime as far as what he can do ah script on our did they have the space fearing first and then they went back to her crypt on no no apparently now they're corrupts yeah they they actually well the great grandfather super great grandfather was actually sent off to the Phantom Zone for saying there's life on other worlds broke up logo was was Tao's takeoff of over eight of course he was he has the same power that's what they actually healing healing thing they admitted that yeah he's pretty insightful well it's been similar to the crypto Indians and the other one in supergirl there's a toy trains and the other ones I played for like two hours didn't play with us no I didn't play with you or I wanted to get a character started so I tr- I even yeah right yeah pats squad support Guy Paul kind of does the sniper I'm right now because I have an amazing Schalken autoshop he's up coastal resort though Krypton was pretty much in ecological disaster world yeah the whole thing so wait show basically has nothing to do with so yeah I have to ask closely tied to the comic books whereas this crypt on is kind of completely separate right because it's telling stories that have never been told before right exactly because it's taking place so early her telling her story but that that just isn't really good plot harbor now it's too much for the character the things that they know that she's behind happening and she's still surviving them the producers say the reason is because we know she survives in the book that you know it's you click it and it makes you god mode for two minutes and then you crash yeah and then especially for yours that crashes horrible brings you down to like ten well I could see that I mean if you take away planet or a city city yeah I messed up they balanced the core or something would explode which makes sense it's power you click on it gives you minus thirty percent to damage had gives you minus thirty percents of your all your recharges everything recharges at a super slow race this top level ability okay so every everyone all the other tank armies have a here nine ability which is like a short term GonNa tie in those universes at all I think crypt on is like yeah it seems like it's like a one off it's different the whole scene uh-huh but you're basically invincible yeah like without putting any enhancements into it puts me at seventy percents to all figured I'd try to make her a demolition experts so I've tried to throw her down that path excellent everyone's got a different path I like it well it it's because I knew Pat's doing the they just told us in alternate time line and university yeah different different alternate parallel universe or whatever six six out of lake this character can do whatever they want because they know they're gonNA survive as saying oh I didn't make sense if you're just doing this for like readings because I finally decided to build a base for my villain ed so I figured get a Funky as well so I call her brady chick managed to get through it yeah yeah yeah I showed up and then I was down on the ground I'm really quiet I I could barely hear you first few levels level real quick it's once you get to like high high titans at slows down and you also have been doing today you hear a lot of series points and endurance and details all your talks like you just you crash you have to make sure you're actually save stone armor tier nine stupid sort of like superman can't killed so one do what I also visit I yes the SCIATIC body for herself so I used the the spectrum costumes setting which is basically this glowing formulas might well not formless for an alternative go tell me I don't WanNa stop because I don't want to go you know he's from an alternate earth yeah and just in guys get thirty fucking thirties I'm very close I need to start playing again and I'll get there too I know you've got along with the she s basically started out as just a brain in a jar you the victim of a failed scientific experiment that vastly increased her SCIATICA The a sharpshooter and we all have the Cyprus super super effective in that game it actually going down the late machine gun custodes into the season on crypt on how is the second season of is it it's pretty good episodes I enjoy it yeah yeah it's pretty good city of heroes and we actually finally got together online at the same time and teamwork and we and we yeah we did a couple of against awesome yeah I was wondering how picture something and then reversed it like it's your spectrum costume type is Super Super Weird it's something they wasn't in live at something added right she's trying to be everything she can be so she's created the SCIATIC body it's very voluptuous and so on but she's also a girl so she's very girly anyhow because the base color kind of paint it really looks like she's running around naked like textualist thinking it's almost like you've taken that makes me super excited well it's it's the final season which socks because did they cancel the other up who gets killed whatever anyways that guy is sort of was the idea for specter okay with some of his powers in and actually it works it works really well I just do the heavy weapon to suppress them and stuff pulse is far range walks closing goes hey chuck close range you walk slow who or look so heavy and you head twenty read the first two episodes of killjoys on the TV are haven't watched any of watched the first episode I watched the first season all damage types resistance all damage types within has been school drop you put you up to the maximum of ninety percent she's yeah it's amazing once you turn that on I'm figuring she's kind of flowers for Algernon sort of requires for altered on to start with so she's mentally slow to start with then she gets these super brain powers spectre is basically God's vengeance is it it's the it was basically a superpower thing that went into a human being actually in yeah well you know timing timings turning into a bit of an issue right now and we're potentially taking a break in September until September I think we're we'll still be playing through but we're not going to be having the full complement each session I usually happens in summer though yeah everybody wants vacations holidays dip in a very limited run of Constantine in the TV show you see Spector there the guy that's the the party did their wedding crash in this small isolated village in art so they're still working their way up through to actually get ready to get things done so that's pretty much what's been going on in my life for since last recording okay Elaine I I thought it was we've -able with over the whole team like where they get the money how do this over five you see the whole thing with the blip thing but you it it's featureless and I changed her base color to something pinkish because I wanted her to be kind of girly how was it you were surviving against everything that I remembered yet you're like really tight levels ever higher burn fat and the fact that I must don't Arbor tank snow has this slowly but you're invincible like you cannot be killed yes I was surviving against a level higher than five or six of them attacking me at the same time yeah and some people are like oh no they're not going to die because they're not going to be in the same place they were when he left but you see in far from home that they actually show up where they were winning alright slowly didn't see Spiderman far from home the story you don't like it there's a lot of has Tony Stark to one way or another and also just Mr IOS reason for being for what he does is pretty ladies and completely destroy body she was just saved when she was just a brain stem is right and so the concept is that she has created that airplanes not already more thousand feet in the air pilot or the people that washing that's kind of similar to Dr Datta matter you're looking at the socks because that was a really good one left the kind of like hang out oh he's from what I've seen of him so far is fantastic does he nailed I was never a fan of the comics well I didn't I've never unanswered things going on there what you need iep hand-held everything and I don't know not hand held its twenty everything does need to be his hand waved away and everyone's fine I'll just big problem is that he has a hard time maintaining his suspension of disbelief yes yes it's a super that apartment building that crashed that doesn't exist anymore they're twenty stories up still feel sorry for that cruise ship is an airplane crashes into a building yes exactly so but but what happens is they bring people back before the snap right so yeah playing that but that doesn't even to the God king that's running behind or that's leading the cult okay so we don't want to say too much more because you patch the player in it right now I am sorry but those people who died after the blip that's a whole other issue I'm talking about when they bring people back there brought back to where they were when it happened so they were in an airplane altron yeah yeah yeah so that's why he's Marvel's villain sure I think it's safe to say that yeah a lot of what's been going on in the like the super powered thing that he controls and can take anyone entire world when he wants to he he also created a version of back up so it's like there's going to be a lot of deaths and a lot of other prion at one end of infinity ward when Nick Fury gets alerted to what's going on it's because it's not because powerful person who gets young in cosmic power that that gets into the Phoenix Lady Jean Grey Mhm and on the table Top side of things still have the three point five running in I think I probably talked about it last time hero-movie macbook movie about superheroes I know I like Spiderman I like I was I was happy that they referenced the fact though that Shit kind of so what if we can make this sector then the specter you know his cars are too high though well yeah you you'd Never Start I want an airplane's which show up in the air or on or on the highway and just okay the blip happened people back and we won't talk about how many people are dead from showing backup yeah the whole thing was really all you thought oh well because especially when Gratien back when twenty at the end of sorry again game people come back I should bump up my thing and maybe I was talking a little far away from the MIC casino I created a villainous and cramming it into the Spiderman story doesn't really have anything to do with Spiderman really they should save that for the next event exactly that's that's what I'm thinking now the twist and X. men Dr Phoenix right because Dark Phoenix is a very similar story to captain marvel except in the end I don't WanNa get too much into it I mean I'm sure people have seen on no dome at all are you kidding me across the Internet everything about that that's a lot of people don't looking for spoiler but I do like how they're sitting up because this ties into a video watch showing captain marvel he's movies got released close to the other right but darkness got held off and restarts in re-shoots and then was released was terrible movie well can be more than one thing you have it for audiences that'd be the moves came out yeah I would have been an should be like how did they go from being bad or you know like me like so that's where it was like because they're not in the only the only time that they're good is the pink tree in gardens of the they're not good marvel and the MC you securing the scrolls to be this sort of thing was like oops we can't do that you can they a race at the and of course I don't want Dwayne listening to this and then some inside information we'll time twins back Dev might have it up so list anymore does the pilot wasn't there because he got snapped out of existence but the people that were still on the plane half of the past I'm talking about answered according to Pat No it's like we had this discussion Tony Stark as Evil Fuck Tony Stark's dad got nothing to do any of that he creates edith who is carried on after they came back like our mentioned I showed up in my apartment and somebody else was living here and they mistress and I'm like I'm like stuff like that that is sort of like the we're back is like listen you're bringing logic into this where this is a comic book story so that they're always portrayed as a scrolls because you have a star spanning empire and their consider themselves superior makes sense but then they're like oh it looks too much like some other movie captain marvel right because like well not really would have been different but I guess for a lot of people because the MCA has always shown them being bad no yeah I don't Ronan the accuser is and then and then for two in the galaxy they were figured out they don't understand the difference so I only saw one episode of season three a stranger things is an actual supernatural entity no but so is infinity stone it's actually captain marvel is powered by the infinity. Well they're not they're not they're not feeling they're refugees represent the main villains in the original movie they're going to do at this because there's going to be terrible but there's studio interference with this okay in Captain Marvel you turn find out the scrolls actually good people is one of your biggest before this win came out at the end of end game it's like what happens to all this stuff pizzas everything happened I was happy to Broadway but then you see in Captain Marvel that he's just following suit and the rest the rest of them are all bad in bed in my shield enjoy the movie overall but it's sort of like okay it's the problem is when you're trying to contend so much story into a guy taking kind of the leftovers from Endgame Dark Phoenix it wasn't going to be that other alien races the debarati or whatever that was it was supposed to be the scrolls were shape changing people right but because captain uh-huh did Patrick's thing there also have did manage to get a pendragon in and another one coming up as well I'm sorry I missed it was not well yeah you're Cuban right right right they didn't but they say they had taken power from it and put it in the ship it was an actual like absorbed from the white cell what happens I think it would have worked if they'd done it as well but they decided not to and that's where all the re-shoots started happening with our Phoenix in that's became a mess because originally was also supposed to end in space realty crazy about agents show that's what I'm saying every every representation of the cree there's no they are they are showing them seen them little shield my longstanding forty year in game character he's getting pretty close to where his dad was not quite getting there yeah dark phoenix they probably would have worked better yet probably because Fox was like oh we're not gonNA have this soon so we just want to get this yeah but you can't use that cree has an example I watched all of them I can talk well that's true second season dude it's really good I mean I haven't even watched the latest season of one hundred why what are they doing their warlike enslaving yeah slaving money destroying planets they're killing people the stuff that I did see the great escape on big screen which was nice to see is there still holds up a I don't think most people understand because it's slow very slow I do reverse those dates you can do the the recording the weekend we're supposed to pendragon and do pendragon weakened that'll be much easier ways and your player at your dad died and you guys had a huge sendoff you actually made the water teams run red eye was that was not feeling good last time so that's all right there's one coming up soon so in the end of August are Middle August I should say the race yes it's totally understandable why they would think that they're they're always that's that was the whole thing for the scrolls wide they had that issue I think they totally should on that for me let's see it's been a lot of lot of war hammer with with pat pat because we're humans and they're against us no no I'm just I'm just showing you that they're always put their lives at the end the roads are the villages can we talk about because comecon news dropped and stuff like that yeah well we'll talk about that I've been playing a anx- to Paul your rack for war hammer inquisition martyr so is she yeah she gets she's Aaron exposure and sucks up the energy from the infinity stunt were they using the stone in the power she had the Iraq thing that pull sucked into inquisition oh sure when it goes on sale for role playing spending sixty dollars oh pace do they do a remake of the great escape no thanks I'm sort of the story was retold as a TV movie what's yes and upcoming stuff black-eyed of the opinion that not showing up for past pendragon is the best way to guarantee schticker survivability no no no no no no no hey what did do division a COUPLA with Devon Paul one time one time one time because I believe it against Moore Sir Hello and welcome to another episode of the out of the basement podcast my name is always Interac- oh yeah into have you for Patio title with Patrick which is up online now another painter in Ottawa and didn't get a chance to read the in haven't been doing too much other any tabletop miniature stuff though was supposed to do a thing but it was on a bad day when I was doing a recording or any as we pretty well done so I was like Oh i WanNa try and pick that up a further the podcast and crap didn't so that's pretty much it for me Paul Okay you want the glory that's what you gotta show up glory coming up with us now that's true even even the is bunch refugees this person is a crazy person like just like with the cree Oh no I know what you can do I can be a crazed creek had had Disney and marvel been doing yeah it's been on like I haven't seen the last two I think is actually been following watching after three episodes of season two because there's one I want to talk about for its ties in orbit but X. men have been rebooted again sort of okay gotTa reboot refresh all the time so I wanted to look at it 'cause it's the game so much he's a higher level than I am the highest level of all the people insane I know tat ever happened in any I know you guys two minutes and said I'm done you guys saw that there's going to be an Isan Horn live actually yes yeah I know where it does tell you know for this for this past week the it you know that's how much money you've joined the game that's why it's much law because I've wasted over one K still under too I think complained as much you know because the latest latest patch for start citizen drop and I've been checking Paul's true love I know I didn't see the twist coming which made it good because I didn't have any foreknowledge right what else killjoys and we have to record on discord but we haven't done that in like half a year well actually we haven't released anything that we required when we're doing stuff over discord the days have been you know what those days actually do come we'll have a special podcast just talking about yeah yeah but yeah no between the war hammer and not that's pretty much what I've been doing I also what have I watched new seasons dropped watch the first episode the second one was last night I guess Oh so they're doing it piecemeal like our weekly weekly yeah it's on gaming table that you could sell on the middle for money and for us for played anyway so far it's not bad I saw I saw spiderman profit with pat it was I enjoyed it but I don't know the comic book so so you enjoy Rio two movies I loved I loved his vehicle as vehicles fantastic era bus or whatever it was but yeah so Mr Mr was was a Hollywood now run I did like mysteries illusion powers powerful technology which makes more sense well let's see there's a lot of bugs in it but there's always that game thousand dollars that game's being in production for five years now it's getting they're they're doing I mean you're Oh sweet helped what team was well so he's not here he doesn't get to take part sorry wait I was about to say something uh-huh but I like how they've modernized it actually did like those fighters a team as opposed to one guy so using a bunch of drones to decision wanted to he wanted to be phoned in so he could talk about all the stuff we don't phone stuff we have we have professional professionals we don't okay well we the the illusionist yeah but then he still goes kinda crazy because it's a but let's see what I'm sorry what else was there grandma unions actually been busy at work yeah while except for yesterday was because we had no network use very bored inundated my phone they do that it'll be a video podcast just show we'll just be spending the whole time plitt rolling guys look at these ones it's got cool specs yeah that'd be that'd be pretty much went join this group or group email account yes for the podcast itself so when the notification comes in like pops up on my phone immediately so you get we're in the middle of testing which which is what happened last week when a connective testing basically so one of the things originally was it yeah it was he was always ate well he was he was a special effects artist and that's okay yeah and they decided to use knowledgeable for ability yeah right the is that's above rent that's half the table at the gaming table for that she on Indian states it's actually on a channel isn't it would be side by yeah but isn't it a Canadian but doesn't matter because he's the one that's actually presented oh no it's it's the day that everyone works from home the offices almost empty and and they have a corporate policy of the meeting should not be scheduled on a Friday with the exception working on is a extra portal for people to access the the learning bidder I might I might not yeah because I was gonna say apparently aw after the I'm glad it didn't bug me at all day long for Friday's are meaningless days that's the only way to work bedrooms weaken or type of hobbies work I was doing on yet anyway we were doing a bunch of tests there was like five people yes I was on the website I thought this is the thing is the notification afterwards there was a meeting with management to give them results that happened on a Friday so on Paul you've done by the Carey uh half a day what you paid to sit there I know it's ridiculous it really is what were you Paul Thursday I was immediate from one o'clock to four thirty and get -LICA- worked up fantastic for almost four hours with absolutely no in order to protect it should be and then I spent like spent like half a day trying to figure out how to play a frigging tech priest and I'm like Oh eight patches and dropped yet the release of course is only drop it does the same thing they did this with even showing it no guidemap Lexi shows at the end but that's where the that's why I'm not getting enough occasions oh because I was like I haven't seen anything for a while I think I thought I put up a notice on our facebook page academ- okay I don't need to know about this either deleted altogether maybe I should stop deleting stuff so you guys have a chance to read some of the emails as well but that's what Trista which I just is it I I like your TV show it was a TV movie before it was actually to turn the TV show it's not shows working this is working check things off it's much easier to coordinate that way so that's the only time I've ever had a meeting on a Friday this is the kind of meeting that's actually well work related exactly and then no we recorded action podcast over but the other stuff that we've done hasn't really did you put up until polls pottery and yeah exactly it'd be fun so we've got a few we've got a few weeks let's go out and now we've got four days drops on the thirtieth so wouldn't have done from here coordinating and eases we to do is set up a skype skype a webex Globex and as we're doing our testing we're kind of saying okay this is nevermind your buddy you're going to play some more hammer so he can collect a whole bunch of loot I duNno we'll all go online and played in division that's tomorrow we do tonight why what's the expansion you can play tech which is funny because and they have their own armor their own geared which has been there it's holding her pick it up stuff show up immediately as it shows up and when I look at it it no longer shows up as new from because we're listening to your the wide screen and we're looking at h but I may not have I think so I think I thought I did go to facebook to of course I've been busy at work to start with so the there's there's a couple of different gloom haven related things that are available set that are online so one it is for tabletop simulator there's an entire gloom haven pack really where you could recreate everything on the you're the one who's like I'm played with my buddy I don't know if there's a whole group thing going on here I might be more yeah who knows we all went out and bought the happen to the people who created gloom haven created a half hour and the the process of creating a digital version of a game where it's not on tabletop stimulator it's incoming I'm like why would you give me this shit now for you can stuck stuff away for when you're priests come I haven't bothered because there's been more important stuff that I can now that I've been trying to get the money you need tons of money to modify your craft stuff right so it's like Prince alone cost two hundred thousand twenty thousand two hundred let's see table top in tablecloths that might actually be better it might so I have that all downloadable I haven't actually tried it to see if how it works or there's some sort of scripting involved in it as well so scripting in that it's according to Wall Street you in Star Wars through tabletop simulator hush not down here apparently John's at work or Jen's off with glory tomorrow we're doing just before we get it on sale for a couple of weeks ago I did question did you pick up Glanton it's out now I did well that's usually you also have a lot of star wars stuff you're talking about that to you back gloom haven the other so why are we playing more hammered then if we're gonNA proclaiming you're the one who doesn't WanNA play warmer you're with I'm GONNA do my buddy stuff I'm going back to city of Heroes Yeah although if we did based the way Glenhaven it's literally recreating the game glue haven on a computer and so there in early access it's going to be a good we'll be ready you have to tell people the plan was we were gonNA play every second Sunday that was the plan and then we missed one of those and then it never happened again mm-hmm and they only have an individual I think there's three three different dungeons so the first of the starting maps but we're Amer good the expansion port is dropping two days and movies movies the only really the only thing I've seen is far from home I don't think there's been anything else that's caught my interest in the last you're only the three of the first of the starting characters are available the fourth one is going to be introduced in the first patch that's the ones that we've been playing with couple of weeks you have watched the lion king yet I saw the lion king when it first came out why change it well now they've made it dollars so if you have if you have early access and you don't need to put any more money into it and you'll have the full game when finally released so I picked it up so for scenarios are going to be included all of the cards that we've we've been used to be included all of the town events are going to be included so they're basically the three be in your in the game and play as the character it's awesome what is the first person third person it's still yeah and scenario available so far but of course as the game is in development they're going to expand so all two hundred and thirty this is coming from the guy can't handle spiderman being the next Tony Stark handled that what happened to this whole that's the only way it's going to be awesome one of the reserve Lee released but even up until then it's still it's still not multiplayer capable yet single player you're looks like there's big changes but nothing changes it doesn't affect what happens in his friendly neighborhood anyway but should he's he's a a local no one's been willing to put aside the time for that so that is kind of dry yeah yes I'm waiting for notification to ready Oh I see did interest me that I haven't seen is yesterday the the movie about the Beatles I have no interest in either because I've never been interested in the Beatles sounded interesting but I'd stickers for the womb haven board game oh yes he was talking about we could actually bring gloom haven back and actually start playing again and do the whole campaign creating the game the Board Game Blue Moon to in the place but it's GonNa take two years and you have to kind of be patient with Iran threw the weighted how long can't handle what did how did you reach sensibly those products okay yes but you can't you can't do that because the plot behind the movie is not that are that the well the computer generation really doesn't bring anything that the original of course although one movie without destroying the stickers that came with it without destroying the physical board that came with it by pasting stuff we won't rip up the cards put him aside and then put him back in there hundred thousand yesterday sell them back cost twenty yeah but it's the tech priests tech priest as soon as soon as the new expansion jobs it's GonNa be running all your characters you can only play a maximum of two characters at a time through a scenario but that's all right though and I've started playing it I got through the first two rooms and there's been ongoing the the what change would would change in the world from Spiderman far from home was trying to say there's been world changing events and years before they finally released the full game all they're wanting to hold on if you pick it up early access right now it's twenty five dollars when you win the game goes live it's going to be dice I think you've got unlimited patients of course I mean how long have I been waiting for stars that doesn't limit a patient's Day Caridi live action after all the reviews I haven't seen I've never even seen the original all the reviews that I've been seen about the new one spend time with them so anyway that's not back to the things that I've been doing over the last couple of weeks talking more about video games heroes of course we're just going to gloss over a lot of them yeah okay because it's comic book does well the Comex as well right Stanley intentionally designed so that I don I was going to talk about it when it's my turn to talk what did it actually use your sort of turn I think I think we're doing okay so I I guess the rock the the two most well-known actors maybe not necessarily to best people there's a lot of Vedeno VIN diesel Vin diesels apparently it asked Geek Gamer Gamer and he was the DVD and stuff that's that's the reason that we originally liked him yeah but it turns out he's actually an asshole and so I would want Video Games I picked up a new game you haven't seen the new fast and furious actually I wasn't sure I it's not out yet is it started this week last week Hobson scars on like Faulk it's it's not easy it's difficult but the game itself is different but at the Games also designed for four players right which is unfortunate because he's the main he's he was he was the franchise though up until he was but the cool thing about him was the fact that he was four persons nearing two characters and it's it's difficult but it was Super Fun okay so that's that's gloom haven also I picked up we're here is the fact that he happens to be on tour in Europe is something completely different he wants to be local but the world to be global right well so and you're trying to find and you have to go to all these different space hawks and go around and tried to download data from their central core trying to piecemeal the location scavengers and so there are four five or six different care archetypes I have in my team leader medic and a sharp injure or a corporate scavenger see worked for a the governor he sends you off on this mission to locate the information for this mothership like this grant and there are all these space hoax they're floating through space and when you go on board bad things happen and people attack you but you're basically of this mothership inquisitors it's also space all put together your team of I'm not really big screens it's one of those explosion getting stupid I love the original fast and furious movie I love the second was okay the third one Tokyo drift was my absolute favorite of all and living on Sillier chillier there something skied Ehrlich's Oh yeah yeah I've been watching you play that is Super Fahd what's okay so square you might have an encounter that's definitely stressful it's very similar space all accept that well it's different in space because you're getting multiplayer a single player game so you put together your team with three and then you go along turn based it's it's you're basically moving one square at a time and then when you get I'm just getting after after after the sixth movie I gave up but I think it was good up until the sixth thirteen people though from them attacked by enemies and then defeat the next flip shows up and you and this each room will have like a group of three or four as a fan favorite but I picked up this new game on the sales team called Shit I can never remember them we're steam seem sale stuff that you come from the gear that you put onto your character and the as you level up the ability so you get so depending on how you build your character you may have a lot of weapon but it's not as fast I'm going I played other Games yeah definitely there are games run a little more streamlined there's a scout so one guy does heavy damage to the guy does a lot of muffing have a third guy kind of does some healing or status multiplayer game it's not really this is actually not as fast as if Dwayne were here he'd go on and on about how awesome savage lenses 'cause I was worlds or savage wolves it's it's actually a pretty decent guys or creatures or a single giant monsters something pops up and then you fight it using your cards and abilities this can't get over how the Beatles could not exist without changing the state of music today what you're not supposed to go don't worry about that again this is two or three months to kickstart hopefully beginning theory in the roleplaying gas so we can try and September yeah of course that's under I really enjoyed it but that's the only game has drawn me away from city of heroes for a limited time but that's a three or four days playing a couple of hours at a time what else have I done that's video games star wars mike two different campaigns ones on hiatus actually they're they're both now going on hiatus ones get five per turn the first turn and then you'll kind of play them and they'll have effects so watch the video and how the game play is it's actually pretty cool it super uh-huh I went looking for a movie to watch last weekend with Jan and it was not it was the last week it was not available in any of the theaters came out this week I think it came out this weekend until until October when things kind of maybe late September early October will get another game I still have two sessions worth of backup so that's at least another six or seven episodes so the podcast will still release yup but production on the back end has slowed now okay because I saw last week for it made it there was a lot of these specialise then maybe but one of those pre release figured you'd be watching Conan version on kickstarter for a long time ago I've all PDF's for and there's a John Carter of Mars version okay also went off the saints abilities you may have a lot of status affecting cards you may have a lot of cards that do buster debunks and randomly from your deck of cards my regular Star Wars game is on hiatus for the summer because that's we had one session and then that's going to be until September October then I've got one game that I'm running online for the people that were added Aptidon up a few people put we're interested in trying the game there's also science fiction and other sort of the fat easier faster one to play got a game engine basically sister we tried it which we haven't done it in three months I think maybe since March maybe that one's on indefinite hiatus until we can actually find time to sit down well there's also the ones that nick fury not the world does too because during the first thing that people like you the next are you the next iron man so okay well into until the beginning of August then I've got another one for my my old old old old old talk about work stuff for a while yeah during my section watch to see it all edited down and it's nothing but differ they were doing where his little Guy Paul lost interest in that I'm not good as the driving force behind these Games but see I wanted to do a game where it was just you and me so I was noises dude how awesome slade it was uh Salih Industries is a fantastic role playing it just to bring up something about the second edition in or a TV show more importantly I finally finished off all eight seasons of game of thrones so I hadn't seen I seen the first opera season seven all of the books for that seeks I was on kick starter as well they're actually pretty interesting I read through a bunch of them but I haven't really actually sit down to do sort of fantasy superfund like we just want your shadow we just won't do it at like a Friday night when you're super tired I'd seen any season eight so what did you think jen hadn't seen any of it so we sat down over the course of I think almost two months see this is why we haven't wheeling Star Wars watched it's Christians Berry savage worlds which is the sociopathic streamlined faster version of the deadlines while it has the Hell on earth the last season hey we've been we were doing the next big movie Disney to do movie who's we yep and or even six episodes so well you can see in season seven where they were losing Martin's sky absolutely absolutely yeah and also fix version star wars game which has been running for three years and that's the basis for our exclusive that one had a session recently but one our region yet simple we we'll get two points divinity to on sale everybody all of them every episode I mean it's only like seventy five episodes total we sat down and watched seventy five episodes of game of thrones buying the gods at the end I fucking has as as you've known the very first season you never are quite sure who the main characters are because a lot of people you've got to survive to the very dairy quickly everyone who wasn't GonNa Sean Bean Right only because Sean bean has this habit of dying off in every movie that he's in but you know choice but to do all the way I I really wanted to one on one game just you and me and it's just blinks adventures that I think that guys had another baby and so he's not going to be available for so that was on hiatus probably until end of the year so I really really enjoyed that I've been watching kind of a bunch of non genre shows yes so I just finished off the last season of the Rand Gene Castle Falcons team or space because that is simple system right yeah so anyway let's go back to the things that I've seen and done which which is kind of about these rednecks I've watched it's actually a really secure culture is actually a decent well I watched it we've got to be about you we always get your since no one has been interrupted as much as I oh Paul go to jail drinking and driving it's it makes fun of some stuff but and it's super super right wing leading ish but at the same time it's actually a really good show it's actually a very fun show there's a couple of others but we won't really get into they're not really genre because people have no oh so you've got two out of hiatus he had he had four or five Games one point seven star wars games going almost simultaneously committee if there's a pot lines about drug abuse alcoholism as plotlines about people dying I've been enjoying that Jen and I have been watching grim which has been super file like really enjoying watch going getting back into its grim again and he's probably recorded him at his home edit this in somehow because that show is actually surprisingly deep and surprisingly dark considered it's out Mike Okay I'll run the beginner game we'll make characters and see if you guys are interested so that's Kinda going to do that like once a month ish although we haven't done it this month we're holding I currently have five including the one you guys are kind of involved in online that is on hiatus so I've got the AH I was fine with how everything turned out I was fine with the crazy plot twist that happened in the penultimate episode has everyone nope episode issues I haven't gotten into the full run but definitely recommend okay let's move on to segment to users it Dr Afra is an amazing character so she was so cool that they actually had a whole off storyline just for her and that's very I haven't read I think I'd rather of the I had no problem with any of the stuff that happened I wasn't there are certain segments of it that seemed rushed obviously that whole last season was condensed into seven episodes. Hi and I'm right back to sit here and say I can't hear you describe that really WanNa play whisper by felines scout injure that was afraid remembers but I did try them of course you're getting that book three giving it to me as a present well actually getting to oh I see you're getting your own copies but I was going to say also I played with whatever a comic book I'm still reading the last the latest issues of Darth Vader and I've gotten into because of Darth Vader Comic Book Dr Forget He's been he's been waiting almost half a year for the topic for segment three so I would definitely going to put off till next it should we just save comecon for the you WanNa do last segment three no news rumors pat so much that happened is loss is a tragic and it's kind of like the driving force anyway listen to the last episode of Geek fights that we did because it's all about game through Oh that's right yes yes on and check recently cheeses Jesus any who how and dollars how you guys were show runners showrunner sites that's that's where people were all going Oh so you just did the last season quickly because you wanted to go off to do the Disney okay after connor or geek nation towards travel so that one we're doing it next week I'm really looking for that because I love hanging out with those guys and then there's the one that we do a had apparently has this whole thing you WanNa talk about segment three I don't even think we're GONNA have time for it you can sit he's already been an actually actually trying to bring stuff into this thing the bay at work yeah I is the rise of Skywalker just completely killed it does interest in running star wars no it won't you're going to sigma to just one watched for Elliott Elliott Samuel the only reason I teach us like a gruff just Elliott yeah exactly exist. TV shows I've watched all of the new stranger things stranger things that is a great movie I think he's not really know okay I am I I don't want to spoil it this is GonNa be our listeners so there's there's AH dwayne to be here we can even come on it is kind of our computer expert I was going to say because swamp thing had one season the course that's usually how it goes are you kidding I don't have that kind of patients data he doesn't he doesn't I there's a lot of stuff I just leave an odd camouflage it turns out there was a lot of well I don't know how the scenes production and conflicts I don't know how did it actually is because DC's doing their deal with Hbo Max Yeah Got Dropped It was just cancel episode aired exactly but everybody watched it says amazing everyone says Oh yeah here's how things are going to be so here's every comic book movie all put out by Disney I'm afraid that might be become a modernized I'm afraid that there's didn't start that way really Kevin Marvel was not DC he was very popular and then what happened was that company went out of business well the marvel way back when or the guys who produced it assumed thing as ours hold on Sam DC is now we're not even half of that so they're influenced they can bring is crazy of course which is way too much so they ended up having DC as well be there's going to be a lot of issues if ever did actually so cyber is not going to have its movie anymore really they're looking for the guy who played the flat thing trying to purchase DC no no because Warner brothers apparently is putting dc the DC line up for sale that's the latest rumor that I've heard percents but they're not gonna he's looking the reason why there wasn't really more of a movie yeah listen the second he shows up he is the proof that Justice League does Alhelwah not once in history as superman did anything other than the top song DC offered to try to sue in the Justice League movie who's actually one of the few bright points in the movie you've also yeah you like the clash yeah much prefer gusts the owner yeah instead of the actual actor yes okay okay since since we're talking about I will mention I because the whole Hbo Warner Brothers thing is who knows what's GonNa happen there was going to say the lawsuit a big part of that those part of it yes so but they went out of business so the Captain Mark Captain Marvel he's captain mark the need to exist yeah that's true you just need super say as they're looking F- according to rumors one brothers is looking for a new person Kitts Yeah and she kept Marshal Sam was one of the first ones like it was more popular than Superman that's longest time it's never happened bad for because right now Disney owns forty percent of the market share for entertainment which is huge yes no one else's even close to that oh you name went around picked up by another comical company where he could separate his limbs and control them individually marvel would this time of starting to come up and went hey we'd like were marble makes sense to have a guy captain marvel so they bought the rights to Captain Marvel well no the the rights to the name naps and Marvel decided okay let's grab it we created they created Captain Marvel which is why she rights to Suzanne thing yet to the character he couldn't be called Captain Marvel on the cover this is a fun movie tied at the end of it they did it was it was a cutesy movie well let's remember comics started off with for Sam is Suzanne his catchphrase rather than no no so what happened was then said okay we're we now they got the you see the titans has ever actually get that they're owned by the same parent company but I don't think it's a good idea marvel did multiple iterations of calcium rebel and to keep the name trademarked yet breath so after a while DC just went but it's also like a weird because he can't reduce himself to grapple because he changed who are you I'm the guy with a lightning bolt I wouldn't want that because we also wouldn't want that however it would be funny if I start ged's DC verb across exactly that would be like he can finally get I'm like give a brief was was this on the out of the basement podcast you to page yes it is which is YouTube dot com slash ot pot that podcast that happens hi this is getting a little too weird because everyone's whose captain marvel but so they decided to rename him Suzanne so he's no longer captain well he's actually is Suzanne in the DC universe he will always be captain marvel you will always be captain marvel movie it can be called Transam. DC now he's actually Suzanne he's not Captain Marvel more that is so but that's where it all came about seriously I've put when I did the Captain Marvel Review Captain Marvel Movie Yes YouTube page in my youtube video will be the purpose of that it was a weird second L. Fifties or sixties soda ways that went out what are the better but Greg Gusts in in the just whatever the Justice League movie points Superman was the breakpoint no he wasn't no absolutely uh-huh TV Pot Nippon Okay very different that's very good I'm can controls it was weird he can have his legs run with no body it was on fourteen year old boys to become fostering yeah wards or isn't that Michael Jackson those those were never Z. Funny Weird why comics had made people laugh at them that's one of the reasons okay so but in the movie they'll say Zam he may be dropped in the movie because that sounds that sounds pretty creepy hey so you get some old billionaire guy keeps getting Rovers Brandon Ruth will be reprising his role as Superman in fitter yup put that so weird because he also plays out he's it gets really weird because there is an uncle who pretend to be a superpower guy but he just and he's not even really an uncle uncle just this old guy who hangs with these kids yeah so I now they look in the movie also Sam Movie But in saw all cultures them no no no they don't they haven't been given names in the end the movie I Sasha Zam Finally Oh okay good little too yeah yeah so how are they gonna do that well it's crisis if earth so they're bringing in other things so the movie follow up to Christopher Reeve Superman is going to be showing up I hate that movie as much as other people did that was no return a worker our past son I've heard a rumor I don't know how true this is that Disney is considering he was captain marvel comics yes in the comic he's still referred to as capital marvel comic itself is called Zam right but then what happened is turns yeah it was okay it wasn't Christopher Reeve Superman but he he did a pretty good job of replicating Christopher Woah no no I'm saying I hope they finally give him an actual name that's not saying but speaking of Superman cw but the whole thing that was kind of weird but it made sense considering that this is supposed to be a direct sequel to to same named billy he's like my other ellie no no so they call him Suzanne Yeah Yeah that's funny I loved three and four maybe not for as much although the introduction of nuclear men was interesting movies where they were talking about the only person that could actually have a kid with superman would be one wonder woman no no mortal woman movie he doesn't officially have a name there's just the the word Zam that he that's his water power from my hand imagine how does the the same family how do they get their power junior who says captain no no no yeah but he's referred to himself as that he got a steeper premise and I hope it gets dropped anyway let's move onto the success of the movie says public like I said it was a cutesy silly the only the only person that was named Sam was the wizard right yep where he kept saying say my name although his name that is power stripped away right when he was with Lois Lane and that's how was it a child one of those that's all he ultimately uses that too the cap the Martin this says anthem all by got okay so there is Kathy Murville junior miss marvel there's a frigging uncle marvel who has no powers words were friends that he hung out president yeah we're talking a lot of ways yeah so catherine rebels stories if you watching it that really bored me well it's it's not the most exciting movie I can't remember that part of it bored me that I really didn't enjoy that part of the movie I hate that movie so much more villainous the steals odd was actually a little more sympathetic and I'll always watch hackman he's awesome as Lex Luther but even Richard Pryor three three it was a it was a decent movie answer from the very beginning you've lost all of Superman's what makes superman superman in fact if he were actually taught that then you would get what happens in bright I'll say what I wanted to remake semi Eisenberg God he says he says he says the rest of the families yes you wouldn't get superman person or viper in yeah infamous like the the character right not because it keep trying to come up with the name your captain electric lightning bolts instead blah blah blah. It's like yeah exactly even even in the yeah he's also Rape Rape Roy Palmer that's marvel that's not easy that's east era that the atom isn't it why like I'm getting tired the Disney turned into live action stuff is like okay this is getting old not even live action it's like live action pretends to have powers cake comics this was all before DC took it over he's he's the marble family I didn't mind it because it was like dealing with you know the dark part of your staff and that so and depression and alcoholism and you I can't remember I think it was I think it was one of Kevin Smith's movie is stupid everything from the very beginning where he's told to hide himself and this saving people isn't as important as saving us identity while especially what else are you like defeat generals I'd see the day was cool that journals all was fantastic way better than Zahed from the stupid Mansfield and that's what turns them into the superpower beans that they are in soil cultures in again they haven't gotten to yet no one has a name not even which is actually that doesn't really have a name either and go into something more money well yeah of course they they don't WanNa make new ideas so they just do a remake of an old idea and a new format and hope they can I guess we're GonNa talk about also knew that girl yep she's joining the Arrow verse yeah but she did last year she was she was part of the crossover so the that one they did run with that does well for a while so kept it because that shows and all that does actually the parts so I I've watched the latest season of flash which is on net flicks you know I guess play tests senator so what's what's what's the plan with era I do we know 'cause era was ending arrows ending well crisis auditor name Yeah Bob you want to tell them who I am certainly can't introduce like I am you know the guy with the name and I haven't
