"Segment from chapelle. Show whenever chapelle most row. Bro we bought. It'd be best friends. 'cause dasell i i literally car search the whole idea in the infrastructure of Chapelle show a thousand percent by you saying that and you the first person that said that besides me because like i tell my girl like dave chapelle is my hero like he. He literally changed my life every time he does something but he's somebody that is like indirect mentor to me or not mentor. But i do so to speak because he did with this appel show with fucking different. They cannot cuss on. You know you it was. It was different like nobody was doing shit. Of course we have sketch comedy. We always have gets comedy. We always ask gets comedy. That may have a musical guest but the musical guests that he was putting on with synonymous to call as agendas win. He became mainstream. He was put in Artists like most deaf On a same song artists like freeway. You know what. I mean like missing. It's twenty in two different worlds so the two different rose can kind of get a little familiar. Have a better understanding in even know. The language is different They know they they share the same common. Thank you so creating. i'm so say shit bro. No by joe nobody to me mad so this is the thing no so i want to get off on that. So do you feel that. It's important to have that crossover appeal that you can hit multiple audiences multiple pockets in that same way of bringing the backpackers in that way of like. Let me bring both death with. Let me bring most f- with a free way or let me bring these these artsy kids with these dudes who get street edge. But they artistically inclined because a lot of people can't do both. Do you think that that's what you may be aiming to do as well or is it something that you shy away from. I think is happening right now. Like if you so. I'm kinda wanna inside of life so what i've noticed When i post certain artists artists follow me so post a certain artists that that artists might not even be familiar with and just off of whatever the the there would have whatever their style is. It may appeal to this particular artists. And i've got to hit me about enquiring. And i'm some artists like yo I'm trying to work with them. You know what. I mean is is kinda like Is small as the community is. I'm kinda. I'm kinda of minimizing the community even expanding it but but but bringing people more so close a close knit together where they are more media and getting more accessible making a more accessible. Because i guarantee you manifest a couple of artists. I don't wanna one of my homeboys. Who is the artist himself with. He wants to work with z. You know what. I mean just just off the strength that they won't 'cause there's any just like what they heard you know to me. So i'm i guarantee you a lot of artists who follow me that reason out to the artists that i put on so does always been a go interview. Listen to you know. Zona concert pay. I don't even have have as many of the car. That had on ad that i do on my personal keys so i'm kinda building from personal pace than once it once i like is getting to a more safer a I've enough followers on our starts his flow down posting on my personal peach but desks what i had to do to build that brand. It's like okay. This is my brand and it's coming from me. So i'm a posted on my personal account so You know you. You know a lot of people. Tell them i just take a gander and see the different artists that i have on. This is the platform has ranked because the guests on there are different. May have that is more melodic than i ever gone. that's emcees. nc like lyricist. Not i mean so. Yeah so so. I'll make this thing. I have a couple more questions to ask before. I give you an opportunity to plug club plug even even more or less get into it but so would you so. I'll say what. I notice when you have certain guests on especially somebody guests that i've i've had on in this season. I mean i started off with the founder of a museum. I started off with a becca. Hof burger found the. That's what i started. The season off. With so from there it was kind of one of those things of oh legitimacy oh like having each level like being able to have a conversation with someone who's just starting out to someone that's running something. I recently did an interview with the co founder blacks museum. And that's the things that i'm trying to do. Beat able to hit each person because the thing that try to pride this podcast on is. Are you about baltimore. Not that's the way that i look at it and it's very interesting weeding out process because there's some people who see it as a cloud opportunity. Because i looked at this thing is a podcast. Says is open is broad. Anybody can come on. But i try to keep it. Very centered around. Who's driving fast as of the culture where they'd be the entrepreneur community whether it be the artists community and people who are tastes makers artists community urine. It tastes maker community. You're driving so it makes sense for you to be on here. But i find that some not all but some businesses they just see it as an opportunity for cloud even more restrictive and more refined as to who your research associate yourself with when it comes to this sort of thing because to your point people will go through and check and like this personally. Oh you had that person and if somebody gets spicy you'll take that post down real quick because you have as you build that brand up you have more things that you know you have to be privy to and aware of and it brings me to this question. Oh gosh what qualities maybe three. Maybe three qualities that you look for in a guest is going to come on cars You know Because i'm a. I'm a huge fan of are and the way that the are is represented us one into in can elaborate on that like do you care enough that which put out is actually good and it's really to danes like and sometimes it kinda all goes down to one thing. Are you good. Cause i don't give a. I don't i don't care about clout i care about carriage and you know. It's been a lot of instances where our reach out to artists. That are acting on the head with his guiding. So if it's gotten so crazy with. I haven't the last couple of months i haven't been reaching out to. They will acquire about it. So i'm just like okay. You guys zero followers sh. I don't care about that. I just wanna put out good content because identity. This is not brand. And i'm just gonna i'm just gonna put out this content and shit if it gets. I mean no. I'm not no. I'm not anybody you know what i mean like. I'm not saying. Like if i put it out you're gonna get s fifty follows right. I'm just like i just wanna put out good fucking art. Cars is art by the thing that gets lost as the thing that gets laws. People don't respect podcast away of. Oh you can just easily do there. There's a fair amount of work consideration. Artistic goes into it and put it this way. Put it this way. The thing that i run into all the time is a most recently in a run into a more and more recently is why did you have that person on. Because i thought they were interesting because i have my own equipment and i know what i'm doing here and like i said before i can get interesting conversation out of anyone and you can tell. Oh within the first few minutes of an interview in my opinion weather this is going to be worth your time and energy to post in in whether it's not there have been a few that come on air a little zuhdi kinda. We go back to what you were saying earlier. And it's like you know you're taking thirty seconds to say hello my guy like can you. Can you tighten it up and other times you have people that are just super nervous in all of these interviews. I've done. There's only been maybe three that i've had to scrap in one that the guess was i. I was super nervous. Can redo it. And i'm accommodating because ultimately it's about me putting together these things but i want to be able to show the artist in their best light within the context of what we're doing so i try to be more on point of sending them to questions early on because of course feel like they got caught up in a gotcha moment la answers. I never thought about that. You don't you don't want that you don't you. Don't want that. But i mean another way Got you know. I mean i felt like i experienced ahead but more so on the flip side of us to have a totally different perspective of the approach and i just i never thought about it that way and emmy since two if it meant official than yeah like journalism goes they all hit you so when you did this and it's like i'm not even looking through my history. What are you talking about. How did you find a web browser history. What's good for sure. So the other question i had this is the actually i had two more. This is an interesting question i had here. So how. how do you touched on the guest a little bit but has has there been a way that you're like you know what this guests will pair well with cognac. This world vodka. How do you go about that because there is apparently being right. Yes so now you talking about the park has man. I think until we like that. I just i just i just purchased whatever my pockets to purchase You have me on japanese whiskey and that's a very very up like wist fight. It is is foreign so one but it was one episode. I check was looking on get any career and isn't that a luxury is not a luxury drank. But you know you just can't get any every episode. I mean expense. They won out though that out. But i i'm sorry no you good but see. I did that because a guy that i interviewed. I never I never man before so the best way for me to get him to open up was again. I mean we used to Me me and my brother. We did a show that was similar to the one that you would describe earlier but we call it an operation burn one. I'm pretty much. He had a son be sleet. And he's like. Can we get through this before. My son wakes up. While was i was drinking. Johnnie walker black every weekend so i go get her like bottle of johnnie walker black a he and i would just you know just had the whole situation. Just talk about whatever stream of consciousness style and it's like can we get this in before your son wakes up. that was a whole focal point. That vargas the editing nightmare. But it was very fun and sometimes it's like he's gotta do. Sometimes you had to do it for the audience sometimes audio do on for yourself so so this is the last question i have for you before i give you an opportunity to plug. Your socialist plugged a website. All that good stuff so this is the baltimore question. Because i'll be remiss if i Don't touch on you know what baltimore is and what it means to us in all of that. Good stuff because all here. I you know if a person's here and they're creating in they have this to aspirations and not really being about the city that they're in them really. What are you doing so show. Let's say let's got a friend coming in from out of town right Has done safe. Where good food three things that they have to do that. Quintessential baltimore experience. What three things you tell them like. You got to do.

"I'm just like you know what franca equipment. Even though i know how to set it up we just want to go out on a whim into a guerilla style. A mimi it my elementary school that i used to go to so we met about an elementary school. I used to attend. And i pulled up. You can't insane. We kick the shits and i'm talking about i. I just felt like it was a dope interview. Because like i swear only i only say like only like four or five questions in interview was like two hours four or five questions and then the engagement with just so organic and authentic in. It's like you can't you can't repeat that you can't force it. It was just right. So when i put it put out a promo video of a clip of him speaking you know And it was just like the way is aesthetically. Like the way is steadily. Put together like people really appreciate. It was really like excited to watch it. So you know they kind of gave me more confidence to keep putting the The more content so fast forward. It's a where we are at the car starts. I interviewed an artist by the name of our rogers junior. Who is Madge is a dope. Art is but a dope individual. So i definitely thought like he had a lot of stuff that saying. I've never seen anybody interview him where he was like more so vocal. So i was like all right and that's always that's always my intent. I wanna speak the people that people never heard speak so we did before we did interview. I'm getting only theatrical interviews on my phone. But you know what i'm still. I'm still a new podcast. People that support me the people that are just like me personally does not support my peers. My friends but to add some like extra juice to the podcast it will be. Don't win if every artist interview. I have him performance august. Almost kinda like the late night show. You know what i mean like i kinda went i. I kinda implemented like that stretch it in applied to the park hats. It ain't no party going to have guests perform and i'm already probably my car. Was that like rhapsody to basically like rhapsody. The basement used to have that kind of element where you'd have someone on but you're looking for them to get into booth. You're looking for them to have some things performance contacts you and and you're right. That is the thing that often gets missed. Because my my thing especially in in doing this this podcast is working with creatives and so on and sometimes like you know if you're a visual artists yeah you can debut something like you know. Recently i work with wanted artists that had on before he did a portrait of brian. Scott he used them platform. And i was like i was just really really doe. Been just to say that when someone if you're working with people who are musically inclined for them to show off with that talent is just for the sake of the culture just showing it off. That's what you like and that often gets missed because people will almost don't do it for that anymore. They don't care yeah. I'm just showing you what i'd do. I'm just showing off right now. Yeah now fish. No i agree and the thing is like if so many so many pieces like to like what i want out of this right so honestly i just want to ally making history making moments so i just wanna i just wanna put something out that five ten years twenty years from now say like oh it was never done here in this is this is the best show owner right now all during the during the pandemic era. This is what we were entertained by. Like aside from the virtual shows that you own respect right. This is something that you can't mention the pandemic era where in the city without mention incarceration. Oughta me from that moment. Like before i even had a name. It just crazy. So i was like just like how i started the liquor with friends over the responses from. That was still good that it was my confidence again. So this is like a double confidence. Booster and i was like you know what i actually put. The park has to the side a second time because carson was just doing dope so so good it was it was just becoming a dope platform and the content was dope but in between throw par like that. You guys say they own a hundred episode. I wanna get to that point like. Because i know that's a crazy accomplished man. You want season three. So i can only imagine how many episodes is i can only imagine how many episodes you record it. Nothing i really wanna get this way but it this way with mastermind teams rock has. That's the one. I've been off twelve years. That said episode. Three hundred seventeen took a month off. And we're gonna come back. Our th anniversary is february so it's just like coming back with those new episodes. Starting in february this is like episodes. Sixty of this podcast. Don't twenty twenty twenty-five per season for this podcast. But there'd been a bunch of podcasts. That just you could maintain can continue to rebrand so like i think all in all you know in the duration of me doing it for this amount of time probably on a podcast that i've done just putting out stuff in a lot of them. I did all the editing the whole concept and you know working with my folks and working with my friends and people in all but for the most part coming up with the concept and all of that stuff so yeah. It makes a lot of sense that you you have to shift. Sometimes you have to all right. I got a. This is the thing i don't know if you you you follow football anything along those lines but it's almost that thing you have like running back by committee. I gotta roll with the hot hand right now. And i can't do all three one takes shifts. I think that's what you were running into where you were getting feedback that said you should be putting your attention towards this one. The other one has to take a little bit of a back seat and it's not a matter of it's done just coming back to to see how it's gonna work and how you can balance the two or which once you get the most attention. That's what happens sometimes yardstick row. 'cause he's in in in so many ways out proudly would not be too like saying like that. I'm glad like you know your your perspective. In a way you interpret things. Are you know the way they are. Because a lot of people just need to different like.

You might not that person and just like following people. Don't say who's got good content here and i just started going through your page and i'm like okay. That's that's cool. Let's see what's what's more let me slide into the dmz hit this dude. Let me see what's good so see that you're doing good work. You're doing like really interesting stuff since like ovid's happening but if you will describe your word to the audience that may be uninitiated. Okay so i started really Taken more of initiative to Create more tap into you know just kind of finding my place you know in in an art room so you will I always been a creator But you know as you just kinda mentioned. Cove it since the breakout. I think that could a lotta people enough in space where we were. Just kinda more In tune with our like interior so to speak To the point where it's like we were digging and pulling from ourselves more than ever. And i'm only speaking from you know a creative point of view Now i'm sure other people who don't have hobbies that going crazy and just trying to figure out were they could do with their time but You know naturally As you know like we we. We have these things that we like to do. So i have a podcast Colleagues were friends with Like yourself The plan and a goal was to interview different. Creatives that Baltimore-based n baltimore natives as well bona raised and started at park has on a lot of people. Don't know i started a podcast in two thousand nineteen but the idea was different Benin was self explanatory. As far as it was it was initially initially was supposed to be a podcast with me and my friends and we were going to drink and just talk about whatever we wanted to talk about and You know shutout bravo shout in. I'm not throwing him under the bus but we shot the first episode at his crib. And i felt this nigga was to engage so like you know. Don't record enough. Oh good. Because i was drinking so sometimes don't i'm drinking. I'm not the productivity level is as far as like me being intuitive in the moment i know that the episode was shit. I went back home. Listen to it was a yo. We aren't talking about a damn thing i put on you know But the concept was a dope idea. You know what. I mean name the way i was branding it in all of that so i i just a lot of personal things was happening anyway so i took a break. Here comes two thousand twenty and this is actually before the pandemic I was talking about redoing rebranding podcasts and everything but i just didn't i didn't know where to record. You know what i mean. You know you you know the podcast and journalists will like you gotta space where you wanna record it and you know all those things. Intangible was that you know a makes a defend pockets. Yeah it could be one of those things where you know said it'd before we got started doing it. As long as i have over the years you just start accruing and you figure out what works for you so i have like. I am in my opinion. Have maybe three four different setups. I have low tier mobile. I have the home studio. I have a more of a combination between the two. I had had a birthday last week. My girl got beat has really don't mixer and and and it's like the mixer that you can take phone calls and everything and his mobile and i'm like oh this is this is crazy. This is a whole new world and then having that that background not to go away from the point. You're getting that background in it. You can flex but you're right when cove it hit the space dollars recording this particular podcast and it was a comedy club and things closed so because you know you wanna meet people you to be face to face and you get a different reaction when you face to face with somebody you know certain things translate a little different zoom is has gotten better over the time but at the very beginning it was as you probably paying for the premium to right. Because you've got a nice background. Oh i'll put that in a green screen. See a big. This is what i guess she do. Yeah no absolutely and but i was tweeting You know i wanted. I wanna i wanna reback this the pocket so Shutout to my guy. F g dez who is Who i consider like really a staple in like baltimore hip-hop streetside and let me know you know i got a lot of stuff to talk about and to me. I couldn't refused because like. I'm really in tune into the same. I don't know everyone. But i knew the guys to know you know so i felt like yeah that would be entity so..

But here we are on the final weekend with no team sports because next Saturday night, you will have Yankees and Mets. In exhibition baseball Now on top of the fact that I do the Yankees in Spanish for those of you that don't know I am also The Spanish language voice of as fate would have it. The Philadelphia Eagles so yes, Ladies and gentlemen, I am well aware of the personalities involved in this holder Sean Jackson situation. There are many layers to this and we're going to get into this in depth. Ah, from soup to nuts on this whole situation, because you you you have to take it back. With this organisation, which has been involved in some of these controversial, you know, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and what I mean by that is they have really gotten into some sticky situations with Michael Vick. Remember the signing of Michael Vick? When Andy Reid was still the head coach that caused a lot of controversy, but give credit to Eagle's ownership that they have been open minded and many were against it. And many to this day we're still against Giving AH guy like Michael Vick in of another opportunity, they put stipulations into Ah into his deal on Michael Vick lived up to everything that the organisation needed him to do on and off the field. So Uh, Vic. His story ended up pretty positively. Since then, we have had another wide receiver Riley Cooper, which a few years ago was at a Kenny Chesney concert. Those that don't know the story. He was in a Kenny Chesney concert at the stadium at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The story says that he got a little you know, inebriated. Shall we say one, too many adult beverages and started using in a threatening manner, the n word to the security guards. So the Eagles At that time. Many called for the release of Riley Cooper. They didn't They actually extending his contract. Uh, but they did send him to counseling. On DH really did work on that side of of Riley Cooper's psyche at the time, but didn't release the player so now when people call for the release release of the show on Jackson You've got to look back at the history of how this organization has dealt with these type of issues. They didn't cut Riley Cooper so many SAIDs hypocritical if they would have cut to Sean Jackson, especially Since he has apologized, although many say the apology was a little hollow, and that he is now going through that same thing that Wilmore less that Cooper did, making a man's to the Jewish community. Julian Edelman. Ah, the wide receiver for the New England Patriots, who happens to be Jewish has gotten involved in it has invited to Sean Jackson to go to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D. C. There's another great Jewish Museum in downtown center City, Philadelphia in Old City, Philadelphia, actually, and Sean has gone there.

We will join us at 12 noon. Were they very in depth take on this entire story, and we'll break it down into into detail and try to clear whatever Miss information's out there the penalty for the show on Jackson From the team. From what I understand it. All my sources is that it's a fine There is no suspension. As of now, now he's got things he has to do it live up to And that could change. But as of right now, the penalty for the anti Semitic rant on social media which is a whole another story the way social media has become just a dark place, and I don't mean that, you know, facetiously.

Coronavirus and golf: How the professional tours are affected
"Let me ask you this about the tour and like all this stuff is going because you talked about the guys being on the golf course and. I really don't blame these news. We try to play golf because if they look if I stay away from people doing nothing else then I might as well get at here but like how do you think the tour is going to be affected by all of this there are affected a bunch of one? They still haven't even postponed or canceled events. That scheduled may twenty first the ink at colonial. And you know one of the events that that they're talking about trying to move since they moved. Somebody majors the US Open now where it got moved. Its date is open. So Jack Nicklaus tournament the memorial wants to move out of its slot into where the US Open was but it's still scheduled to go on in. That's the last week of. May which doesn't seem possible to that's going to happen. They hope and help or like the idea that the US Open is saying. Now we're not going to be here. Is somebody else's like that all right? Yeah or tournament like the open championship which isn't scheduled till July is like we out all next year in. May there like an eighty news like Nah. And that's the thing Bo you know man. I'm I'm optimistic. I try to see the silver lining. I tried to look at the good in everything but realistically to think we're going to be playing in June is just it. I don't see it happening. I just don't see us being ready to play golf in six weeks when there are still places that are on complete lockdown. I don't understand how they think that they're going to pull this off now even in my opinion first week of August which is when the PGA championship is supposed to happen. Even that seems to me as a more hopeful than realistic thing. Not only because we don't know where we be as a country as far as where this pandemic virus is by then. We have no idea whether it is going to be a phase two or phase three and the fact that the PGA championship is still scheduled to be held in San Francisco. Yes I if xactly Gulf has never been the first to do anything so to think that golf would be the first sport to come back. Golf is a sport that is more image conscious than the NFL. That I know that sounds crazy but think about this. You are not going to hear the golf as Elliot Nothing. Have you ever heard of a Golfer have you heard of a Golfer getting a DUI other than Tiger Woods? 'cause it was tiger so he's bigger than just the Gulf News but have you ever heard of a PGA tour pro given the Dui. Like you think it ain't happened right exe- so the thought of Gov being the Guinea pig like man. We'll bring all our guys back. Because you know golf will be the easiest thing for social distancing. Yes inside the ropes. It's easy for social distancing Hauer player's GonNa get tournament how litter power. They literally getting from the airplane to hotel. Where we're staying. Where are they going to empty? Who who changing the sheets right and then when you get to the gut like getting a rental car you can rent a car from somebody. I'll be working rental counter and then when you get to the golf course you just pulling out in the Congo and straight to the driving rains. You're going into the locker room who's WHO's opening locker room door. Who's working in you? Go to the bathroom cleaning up. Who changed sort of paper or you won't eat. Who's WHO's GonNa Food? Who's bring the food who stole in the trash out like? Who's doing the dishes like those? And that's not you ain't got to the courts yet now. You get course okay. We're GONNA put this on TV. Well who's filming? You've got to have a camera do. Okay Yeah we got a camera guy but the camera guys not the producer. Oh Yeah. Where's the camera picture on bow to? We need court to go to the trump who's trump who drove the trump who's producer who's directed where those people at Lake everything that goes into a production of a golf broadcast. Ken Be even bigger than Football Basketball Baseball and hockey. Because at least those venues are all a one static place so you could put cameras up in a stadium and field ain't GonNa Change. It doesn't work like that with golf when one week. The golf course looks like this in the next week is completely different. Everything gotta move is a traveling circus so to think that golf would be the one to go. Hey we'll come out. I will do a I. The Gulf was the second to last the shut it down. It was golfing NASCAR so in the long run when Gov comes back there I think of is gonNA come back without fans like I think every other sport will at first and I think golf will do okay in the long run. But I think we're GonNa wait longer than what we think for golf to come back. But and here's my silver lining. This is also where I love. What the Masters did where the Masters said we're coming back in November. The masters is the last thing on the schedule. Movember Ninety two fifteen and again talk about buffer nate. Just out not only did they come back. And we're GONNA do this in November. They also have already said. If you've got a ticket Komo come on in you know other sport has been no other waning. Tried to say only Augusta will be like not only. Are we putting the masses on? We're letting the Patriots into but we won't make that Egg Salad. We're going to make those divisional tea. Sandwiches come gifts on and I think November. Not only is realistic. But I love that. The masters is at least for me. The biggest beacon at the end of this dark tunnel. I tell you this though. Y'All come back I ain't GonNa meet you there right like they say like they just go be somebody out there. That's like now I'm good is somebody's wife. That's like yo you ain't going out on this trip like his eight nine. This ain't the Olympics though. That's what's funny. I remember when Owen down for the Olympics. Zeka you know guys were like I know plenty of dudes whose girlfriends and wives would like if you go. Don't come on you know. He you know he might put us in. The spot and jazz were like. I'm not even going to go I. I'm any worth you know. I'M I won't be happy home really but the masters though let's say right now there's plenty of dudes if that came down at the masters they are going to be like. Yo suitcases right over. She she she she. She want me to call Uber. Or because I'm going to the mass you don't WanNa go. You Ain't gotta go but one of us is going well. That tate is last thing I would ask you because I just thought of this while we were here. Are these golfers paying their caddies out like how I still pay my housekeeper? Even though she's not keeping the House I got the same thing Nancy so most golfers yes are trying to take care of their caddies in some way or form. We have to remember how cat is get paid. Caddies get a weekly paycheck and then you get a percentage of what the Golfer wins. But if the government's not winning anything where it becomes difficult is for. We all know the big super rich dude by all the big name guys like rory no Tiger Dustin Johnson of Brooks Kapka you name it Jordan Speed Rickie Fowler just Thomas Jon Rahm like those dudes of yes. They're going to be taken care of their dude with the guys who have a tough time on rookies. So the guys who came from the korn-ferry tour or the guys that this is only their second or third year on the PGA tour and they made them millions like those they could be struggling a little bit to one of the guys who I'm friends with a WHO's academy and doesn't caddy for a big named guys told me that his guy is sending them a little bit just a little bit every week just to help everybody still got bills and whatnot. So I'm sure that there are some guys that are not in a position to do that so there are probably some caddies that are hurt. But that's the world we live in right now so everybody's anxious to kind of get back to work pay
The Masters postponed over coronavirus
"Masters officials have postponed the first major championship of the year until a later date that decision coming twelve hours after PGA commissioner Jay Monahan canceled for tournaments leading up to the master starting with the final three rounds of the Players Championship and it's fifteen million dollar purse golfer Rickly Rickie Fowler talking to ESPN about the tour's decision that to cancel the rest of the players championship and a gust up obviously although organizations around our country as well as the world are taken the precautions to trying to stay as safe as we can so definitely stand by the decisions made by the touring Jay Monahan yeah it's unfortunate that you would have don't have any terms coming up but this is a lot bigger than the game of

Tripoli crown: the battle for Libya
"Yesterday Germany hosted an international conference aimed at bringing peace and stability to Libya for actors said they would again respect an arms embargo after nine months of intense fighting. The summit failed to secure a lasting ceasefire the conflict in Libya has festered. Ever since Moammar Gaddafi was toppled in two thousand eleven margin. McShane is are Middle East editor today on one inside you have the. UN backed government in Tripoli on the other you have Khalifa Dr a renegade commander who controls much of the east and south of the country and many of the country's oilfields oilfields in reality. Both sides are really just collections of militias and both draw heavily on foreign support. The Tripoli government is backed by Turkey. I'm and half doors backed by Egypt. The and Russia and as things stand on the ground heft ours. Forces are knocking on the doors of Tripoli but they have been since April and the frontlines aren't really moving that much. So that was a situation on the ground lenient to these talks in Berlin. It's a standoff. That has again drawn the attention of western Western powers who had taken a step back from the turmoil but the diplomacy in Berlin didn't go as far as it could have. The sides did not agree to a ceasefire. And that's a big deal but the foreign powers that back each side did agree to stop arming the combatants which is to say. They've agreed to stop ignoring a decades old arms embargo put in place by by the UN and that is meant to start the longer negotiation over a peace deal and will that work. Well that actually get closer to peace. T think it's the most helpful whole thing to happen in Libya in some time and yet I'm not very hopeful at all. Each side has just too much at stake. Here start with the foreign powers. You'll get Vladimir Putin. He's trying to build on. His success in. Syria extends influence in the eastern Mediterranean. And he thinks by backing Khalifa Abdur. That's the best way to do it now. Turkey on the other side has has even more on the line. Which is why it sent troops to Tripoli this month before all the chaos Turkish construction companies were heavily involved in Libya to the tune of something like twenty billion dollars dollars it would undoubtedly play a big role in rebuilding where peace ever to break out in Libya and signed a maritime border deal in November with the government in Tripoli that gives Turkey a decisive Zeiss of say in gas exploration in the eastern Mediterranean? Now these construction contracts that border deal these are things that get ripped up if half hour winds so Turkey. Rickie has a lot on the line and backing the government in Tripoli and let me just say word about half Dr here because he is the definition of a spoiler. I mean he's the reason why so you don't have much hope for Libya he's completely uncompromising believes Libya needs a strong man and of course that it should be him. He walked out of a conference in Moscow. The other week and we we said to be acting in the same usual stubborn way in Berlin he did not meet with fires. All Suraj the Prime Minister of the government in Tripoli and on Sunday his forces closed down to big oilfields in the southwest of the country. That was an attempt to show what kind of leverage he still holds over the government in Tripoli and so why has this come to a head now I mean dental half stars moves have been going on for some time and now it looks like there is this grand. International push for reconciliation think European countries have gotten more involved volved now because they see things getting out of control and they really want to stop that from happening and they want to do that because it's in their own interests to keep the conflict from really spiraling their. The biggest concern is really migrants and Libya had become a jumping off point for African migrants heading across the Mediterranean to Europe and there has been a downturn in the flow since two thousand seventeen nineteen when we got more involved and I think now they don't WanNa see another uptake and that's why you're seeing more action from France Italy and Germany also like Turkey. France and Italy have big energy interests in Libya and until now that has actually put them sooner on opposite sides of the conflict but recently they seem to be singing more more from the same hymn book and I think it's also for Germany and for Europe a test case of whether they can take a leading role in world diplomacy. And so. That's that's what the Berlin talks are all about you also saw at these talks. The European Union's foreign policy chief even hinted that you're might be willing to put troops on the ground if they're able to negotiate a peace deal and what about the Libyan people themselves which they make of all this jockeying for power and the international interest I mean Libyan. They really just want the fighting to stop. That was the main sense I got when I was in Tripoli last year people are just tired of a decade of chaos and instability. But they also see weakness in Tripoli government I mean fires Al Sir Ause the Prime Minister he is hostage to the militias. Who are supporting him? He doesn't have any real power and so many seem resigned to the idea that Libya I can only be ruled by a strong man and they're not so much rooting for Khalifa. Dr They just wanted to be over and think that will eventually come out on top. And what about the prospect aspect of Mr Half dark coming out on top as you say he's entirely uncompromising and seems to be the spoiler for multiple sets of talks here. How does this play out? If he's just simply not going to play the game. I mean you see this sort of grinding siege of Tripoli and I don't think he consider win this war on his own. He's been at the Tripoli since April so he needs foreign helped it all comes down to whether sort of Russia continues backing him and sort of how involved Turkey actually gets on the side of the UN back government in Tripoli if if the foreign powers cheap to the agreement reached in Berlin. Then you could see an end to this quite quickly. I don't foresee that happening. I think this war is going to go on on for some time yet and I think the foreign powers are going to get more involved from here after. Perhaps a momentary lull on the back of the Berlin Conference. Roger Thank you very much for joining us.

He's a popular adjunct professor of storytelling at Georgetown University. His new book out this year is called. Non Obvious Mega trends real heat. Welcome back to the show thank you. It's always awesome to talk to you. It's been three and a half years. I looked it up. I know I can't believe leave it. I miss a lot of trends so every year you publish a book with the last nine years you published book on Non Obvious Trends but this year you say this is not Mba mega trends and visited last one. Why are you stopping after it selling so much? Well I think one reason is because I wanted to WHO Head out on top style like one of the big reasons so It was it was kind of time. You know it's been a decade. I've been working on this project for After ten years and every year I do neutra and predictions and it felt like twenty twenty was kind of a significant moment in all of our lives right. If we're doing things differently we're thinking about the world differently. Were kind of projecting forward. It was sort of a perfect time for me to think about how to write this a little bit differently. I'd say twenty twenty and last thing I turned around it was like the year. Two thousand is just crazy the on line that said Twenty twenty was twenty years ago but nineteen eighty was twenty years ago. Exactly exactly so I want to call it a couple of your mega trends. The one you talk about his `gendering you say that traditional gender divisions are replaced with more fluid understanding of gender identity forcing a reevaluation. How we see one another I think for those who are of my generation which is really you know the boomers? We have a hard time with this thing called engendering. Why isn't important in business? Gender used to be this pretty simple Sort of answer to a question right. It was either this or that. It was the second question or the question we asked on a form And and it straightforward and now it's become kind of a statement for a lot of people This is how I wanted to be seen in the world and so you know we we get hung up a lot on this idea of gender and I don't understand understand it and it seems kinda strange and thinking about it but if if we put it in terms of identity as in we all just want to be understood and addressed in the way that we see ourselves you know that makes sense wants to people like I get that you know and so I think for small business owners and for any of us one of the things that we need to think about is are we unintentionally driving people away by just assuming that they fit into the boxers that we put them in so is it another F- for small businesses. We think of as a another way to define persona a buyer's persona and now gender becomes a flower our or a non gender and becomes a factor. Yeah I mean that is that is one piece of it you know. It's the customer personas but the other is just these kind of Unintentional things we might do drive someone away right. I mean. How important is it really for you to ask that sort of question for example In an interaction right. I mean depending on what you're selling you may not necessarily need to know that like if somebody's interested in what you have to sell and you have a great product or you have a great service and you're trying to get in front of somebody buddy like don't lose their attention because you're unintentionally offending them. I thought it was really interesting when I think this with your lift or Uber where you go on and you can set your preferred pronouns so again that is more personalized service and the driver doesn't insult someone unintentionally. Yeah this basic sailed right. I mean anybody who's he's gone through. Sales trading is like oh address customer by name like asking their name and and use their name because everyone loves hearing their name and I think this is a reflection of that too like people want to be addressed with correct Pronoun and yeah. I've been getting emails from people who in their email signature says my preferred pronoun is and they tell you right and I know a lot of a lot of people say yeah well I just don't get it. I'm thinking to myself. It's not for you to get. It's the way they want to be identified and And I think that that that is a great is a great point right. I mean I I think we do kind of get hung up on this. I don't get it I don't understand it You don't have to necessarily understand if someone says my name is so and so you. You don't always know how to pronounce it right. So you ask you do your best and you move on right absolutely well. megatrend number three talk about instant knowledge as as we consume bite-size is knowledge on demand we benefit Hillary more quickly but risk for getting the value of mastery and wisdom. This scenario that I'm really concerned about that. People want instant knowledge but no one's is willing to go deep. has that really affect us. I think there's a couple of ways I mean it's A. It's a great example of a mega trend that it isn't inherently positive or negative. I mean look if I can go onto youtube and I can learn how to fix a leak in my toilet myself like that's awesome. I mean that's great. That's good for everybody What's bad is if all we have is that type type of knowledge and no one ever believes that? It's worth spending that extra time to become a master to become an expert. So how does it affect us in business as we're trying to attract customs that's one of the biggest things one of the biggest tenants of content marketing. You know which I know you talk about. Is We want to educate our customers. Because we're the ones providing the Education Gatien. We're building trust and building credibility and I think this fits perfectly into that because when people want instant knowledge like who do they get it from right. And if you've got for example a financial advisory refer and you're trying to educate your client what they should do with retirement and they're going online to watching videos from someone else. Educating them you know what are they gonNA think right. They're gonNA start thinking well. Why isn't the financial advisor? Educating me why do I feel dumb when I walk into that meeting with my adviser and I don't feel dumb after these videos. Maybe I should make a change. Do you think there's still a place to help people with mastering wisdom because there are some people in Emily that always want to go deeper. Of course yeah I mean I think that that the nice thing about instant knowledge. It's it can be a gateway to mastery and wisdom. Look I can go online and I can watch An acting class with Henry Winkler you know or I can learn how to play the Banjo. Which Steve Martin and those was a great man I'm GonNa but am? I going to be a professional banjo player. Maybe not but that's okay because I can start with that and if I do find something that I love something that I'm passionate about then I'll spend the time because because the thing with mastery and wisdom is for a lot of people we become masters and experts in the things we love it and that's not going to change because that's a human

Because when I I used to own one thousand nine hundred ninety three Ford Falcon. It didn't have any seat belts in it because they weren't required at the Time Warner and drive it. I need to have seat belt so I go online. I'm thinking how am I going to solve these seatbelts. I wonder if anybody's nobody's ever done it. And of course there was probably six places where you could watch videos of install belt nine hundred sixty three or four falcon. It's like who would've known Yup because the thing about Expertise is and when we learn about things from people like that. They've become an expert because they're passionate about it and one of the things they WANNA do. They WANNA share that expertise Jason. That's really cool that we have instant access to that. I love your megatrend number four. You call revivalism overwhelmed by technology. Complexity people seek out a simpler experienced. I often established and remember more trustworthy. Time that's kind of like a complex statement. I think some people are looking for a place that is simpler but wasn't really more trustworthy the time or just only a couple of sources who were trusted. I think maybe a little of both And I think maybe we remember the past a little more romantically than and we should. But I think that revival isn't was a really interesting one because what it meant to me. And the implication for any small business was sometimes this thing that we consider to be bad this word that we consider it to be bad which has downgraded actually might be good because a lot of times what we think about when we think about downgrade is that it's less optimal but a downgraded experience for example is something that maybe is more humid.

YouTube isnt fun for parents trying to shield their kids from scary stuff
"The kids youtube is fun except when it's not especially for parents trying to shield their young ones is from the scary stuff advertising purposes there is a lot of appropriate content on youtube four kids and there's a whole lot that really absolutely is not appropriate the existing brands as opposed to only alternatives. Joe Murphy is editor in Chief of common sense media she says it used to be that up until the age of and now for some related links Youtube one hundred seventy million dollars settlement slash for anyone but kids are Wiley and they will find ways to watch Jill Murphy is editor in chief of common sense media she says I think one aspect of it is isn't algorithm really the best way for us to generate recommendations content to a young impressionable audience can you and I feel like a hypocrite because I have the same battles in my house every day my kids are always asking to watch there are alternatives for you too we have an entire list eight kids were pretty shielded because they need their parents to type in searches now with voice control the age range is shifting younger would expect and it becomes quite a rabbit hole I think it's like there's no FCC equivalent for Youtube right for a long time now a lot of major alienated off of these platforms they wanna be in where it's cool to be and so I think that is why the conversation needs to continue to to be around the players in this space have just kind of held their hands up with Lake will just a platform we just provide a space for others to provide content creamed breakfasts not everyone's of the mindset and then there's the recent one hundred seventy million dollar settlement youtube made for tracking and targeting kids for a whole lot of families are struggling with this easily youtube has become the number one pain point among parents kind of the eight to twelve th space it's not just they're not even like mentally and emotionally and cognitively ready to make those decisions to turn something off to walk away to not be now that's true ish but then there are other offshoots of Youtube where you could pay and create a subscription and they returned to do originals themselves Dr Site the challenges because phones are cool and Youtube is cool and Netflix is cool and kids do not want to be skewed by the messages it feels like unfair fight so what is the parents supposed to do then I know what is supposed to do I am a platform it's not just the way that it plays content but it's actually become tempted plays this idea that there's lots of cool stuff on there your kids gravitate towards that we all love it.

2019 PGA Championship Odds
"Obviously, let's start. Tiger woods. Okay. He's eight to one which, again I'm going to say is ridiculous. I would never been anybody to win a golf tournament eight to one. But if I had to I probably wouldn't take Tiger Woods in this one, am I wrong in saying? No. You're not wrong and saying that. And let me just preface that by saying a couple of things. You know, Beth page black is a serious golf. Course it is long. It's just a, you know, Scotia under seventy five hundred yards. It's got an incredible incredible slope of one fifty five so for people that are listening that may not be that attuned into golf having a plan. A golf course it has a slope rating of one fifty five is an analogous to climbing by climbing Mount Everest. You know what I mean? It's steep in Scott, it's got a course rating Bryant of a kitsch over seventy seven while that. And combine all of that. I mean it's incredibly difficult. Number two. They expect some weather, you know, whether it be, I think I've Friday and Sunday hole with a chance. A rain and I think that's going to eliminate half of the field, right there number one, because of the weather, and even if they didn't have whether there, Brian, I think half of the field is eliminated because if you're not a bomber on that golf course your chances are swimming to win in my opinion. So and what I've heard about this golf course, the greens are fairly small, it's a, it's a ball striking golf course. So a guy that hits the ball long and straight probably gonna win this thing. But I guess you could say that about many majors out there. Right. So I look at a guy like Brooks. Kapka. Okay, kept is around ten to one. He's one of the favorites I'll tell you right now. I'd rather put my money on captain Tiger Woods. Well, I agree because kept goes is playing very, very good golf right now. Secondly, tiger winning the masters, you know, getting a lot of pricks and winning the masters but a wins a win. Okay, how hard it is to win a major little go back to back and. Win two majors. It just doesn't happen. And I just don't think the, the outer in tiger saver, especially if it is cold and rain tiger does not play good in cold or rainy weather. He just doesn't well, that's because he's a worst. That's what he requires conditions. That's because he's maintenance. That's why Dennis gimme gimme a long odds darkhorse in this thing. Oh boy. Very good question. You know played last week, and I've always liked a lot of. Is he's from whereas from India, big Roly, poly guy hearing that? Not lahiri. No, no cured that copy barn. Right. Okay. He got the length. He's got the game. He's playing good. I said for years, this guy is got to explode in a good tournament. I don't know what his odds are two hundred and fifty to one but how much two hundred and fifty to one, okay, there you go. John daly. Thousand that's my Bubba Watson, sixty two one boys that that's true Bubba is sixty to one, you know, here's another guy who is just no confidence right now. You know who probably I'm gonna say, Jordan speech, right? Your meal. He's people are I hear the most ridiculous thing the other day that there were when George came out, and he had a stellar year, you know, two three years ago, they're going, there's our next Tiger Woods. There's our next tiger was you gotta be kidding me. Yeah. See, that's, that's just completely ridiculous. All I is so far awful lot. It's Redick doesn't hit the ball far enough. That's the bottom line in this day and age of golf to be one of the best players in the world you have to hit the ball, at least three twenty three thirty three forty t. Has a magnificent short game. We know he's going to win more tournaments and he'll probably win more majors. But he's in my opinion. He will never be the number one player in the world ever again. I happen to agree with you. And I think right now with him. He says he's a grobian he's getting better, especially the short Dame as funny, but he's got demons. And I think that's the only thing that's stirring up on the greens, real. Masonic temple and over thinking that people have been saying that for a long time. Yeah. It's going to be interesting to see how long guys it takes for him to shake those demons and and get back to being him. Let's talk a little bit about Jason day. If you ask me, a guy, I wouldn't really call him a long shot because he's about thirty two one in most books. But Jason day has had a lot of success on, Bethpage. He's had a lot of success on this golf course. I know he's not the best player in the world, but he used to be he knows what it's like to win big golf tournaments. It seems like he is getting much back into form. And he's playing some better golf again. He's my guy that I look at nice say, well might might not be a bad idea to put a couple of bucks on Jason day. He said success here, he can win this tournament. And then I look at a couple of other guys like Patrick Canley, like, Tony female these guys that I think are do they've been in contention, and majors before they certainly have the talent to win it, and it just for them. It's just about getting over the hump. Those are a couple of guys, maybe not the biggest household names, but guys. Is that our top twenty players in the world that I think can win tomorrow? Well, I agree with you. I, I disagree a little bit with can leave. And though he's having a hell of a season but you happen to mention the guy where my money's on to win this tournament. That's Tony female. Yeah. He's all the tools. He hits the ball long way Jos the ball. And he he's got a magnificent. Nag -nificant short game. He's an incredible athlete as long as he doesn't sprain his ankle, a couple days before a major. He'll be he'll be just fun. Every did that the masters. Zander Shaw fell doesn't. He owns that the long drive record like four hundred fifty yards. Doesn't he? Zander sharply. Yeah. Yeah. I was not aware of that. I was not aware of that. I mean he's obviously a fine fine player. I just personally, just don't seem in the Knicks on this. I wouldn't you know, think to bet them, but again, anything can happen, J D And don't forget, all these guys are damn good. But there's certain things you have to have on a golf course like this to really up your percentage in, if you don't have I think you're going to be hitting your gifts your head against well, obviously short game and putting anywhere. But you gotta have the lake to gotta get it in the stairway on this golf course. And again, I think they haven't, you know, this, this course, is held what three or four different big big tournaments before and experience is, is really kind of out the window. I think it just got to look at the guys that are coming in that are kind of hot playing goes speaking of hot. I'm glad you mentioned that because Dustin Johnson has a very hot wife and pulling the Gretzky he is let me mention a few guys Dustin. Johnson. I mentioned, his trophy, wife, Rory mcilroy is twelve to one Rickie, Fowler guy. We haven't talked about is right there at sixteen to one Jon Rahm and other one eighteen to one with Justin Rose. And then you have Molinari in D Shambo at twenty two one those guys that I just mentioned. Is it fair to say that, that those odds are correct? And those guys have a good shot to get this thing as well. I do. I do. I think this one they picked it. They take pretty good. You know, again, there's ways that you can play is, you know, playing really, really good golf not being the longest hitter of the world. And most of these guys, you know, have that they keep them play. They've got a good short game. They have a good imagination. And that's, that's what you'd be on any PGA tour event Brian. You know, that's sure. No absolutely

Why Phil Mickelson told country singer Jake Owen to 'go f*** yourself'
"That Mikkelsen store? You were telling us during the break that was so great because. Stugatz loved rolling through that Mikkelsen story because this is exactly how you would imagine that Phil Mickelson would find himself. I I don't know of this is true. I don't know if it's been confirmed anywhere. Oh, it's got to be true. Right. Yeah. No, it's true Nicholson has confirmed that Jayco and was performing Jordan speaks wedding. Phil Mickelson was invited to the wedding Jayco in country music star was railing against Phil Nicholson saying. Hey, yo only thirty dollars for that event.
