Energy Healing for Food Issues and Body Image Recovery with Sarah Speers
"Sarah Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for coming on. Could you talk about to kind of introduce yourself to listeners a little bit to start what were the biggest influences on your relationship with food and your body growing up Ooh I, love that question and thank you for having me. It's really interesting when I reflect on my relationship with soon, grind up I didn't think I had a lot of. Unhealthy eating. Messages I thought my family was relatively healthy. I thought I had a healthy relationship with food. In hindsight looking back I can see the the seeds of sort of unhealthy relationships creeping and mainly I would always eat sugar to self soothe as a kid and we used to have these nightly routines of always eating ice cream after dinner or using food as a reward, those sorts of situations which as an adult. Started to really come into fact in terms of my unhealthy eating habits and so as a child when I had this super active and I had a very high metabolism, it didn't appear to be an issue and then later in life I was able to see. Oh Wow, I really became attached to food and certain foods specifically became sort of my emotional crutch that I use as my wages Osu their self matic later in adulthood. Thank you for sharing that I. Love How you said. You know where you're talking about when people are kids if they're like just naturally in smaller bodies, it's like I love how you said it didn't matter that I was eating sugar like it didn't appear to matter. Right. So that's actually something that I run into a lot of the time when I coach kids for swimming and not something that I ran into growing up there people will be like, Oh you're swimmer it doesn't matter what you eat and the sense of. You can't see any changes on this people's bodies because they're teenagers and have insane metabolism's and also happened to have smaller body genetics I. Think it's so important to talk about that distinction. Yeah, and if I can also add that in terms of the body messages. Growing up because I was. So skinny might nickname literally on my sports teams or people my life would call me twiggy string bean and a my identity came really attached to having to be skinny to feel like I was valued or. Was Getting approval from people. So again and as an adult, you know sometimes we think your weight issues are just if you're overweight but for me, there is always this angst around I have to stay skinny because that's my identity in that's where my word comes from and so I didn't think I had. People affecting my body image growing up either I thought I had a lot of love for the people around me but even these seemingly harmless messages or fun nicknames were actually really shaping my identity to my body. Yes. So how did you go from that from kind of struggling with your relationship with food and with your body as a teen and maybe until like early twenties to transitioning to work with women on food freedom and specifically through energy work? Yeah. Will my story really took a turn it might twenty. So I would say most of my childhood teens and even young. Adult I felt like I had an okay relationship with food. But in my twenties I started to develop really severe eating disorder bulimia. Yeah and that happened because I started to go on a diet and I thought I wanna be really healthy and I wanted to see if I, can you know shed a few extra pounds and and that turned into a very obsessive? Counting calories coming up with really strict food roles and as a result, I just wasn't nursing my body and I was getting anxiety around what to eat and and it leads you very severe been gene and then bingeing purging I got stuck in that vicious cycle and suddenly I felt like. Oh. My Gosh how is life? Like you know the Pitney came one day when I was over the toilet that Oh, my God, this is not normal or healthy ns somehow become minority and so that became a struggle for six years. Once I got pulled into that I just was struggling so hard to get out and it controlled my life and it became my mission to heal my Sol's. So that I could then help other women because I did not want another woman to ever have to go through the agony and the like the torture that I was living in in my mind in just my reality, it was consumed and I lost myself to it and I was determined to get myself back if not better and then do everything in my power to help woman y'all. So that kind of started my like. My determination to figure this out and I was determined to try any in everything to to get better and so for a long time I, sort of was always turning to food. Let me try and control food. Let me use little power in. That will be my way to get over this like I'm just going to be perfect tomorrow. And that Kinda like I tried that over and over again and not just never worked right. The answer was not controlling food, and so I started to them look outside of that at other healing modalities. And I just got desperate inserted China everything in eventually stumbled Pon emotional freedom technique also noticed tapping and things like ricky and emotion code, and all these different energy healing modalities and Literally within a matter, six months pretty much all of my quote unquote symptoms seemingly disappeared like I just felt whole and complete again I felt like myself again, I felt empowered in normal again and it wasn't a fight or struggle. It just seems like as I got it through issue and really started to uncover all of these repressed emotions in the subconscious programming and these wounds. I didn't even know I was carrying. That were leading me to say stock in these unhealthy habits. Omega, it was like a radical shift, and so that is what made me then realized I need to get this massive these modalities out to as many women as I can because it may not be the one thing that's going to help but it is certainly missing piece in the equation and I think a lot of times we don't look at these other modalities that can be so powerful in conjunction with like proper nutrition or you know a good mindset etcetera. Yeah we're therapy exactly anything like that. Exactly.

Creating Your Own Opportunities with Wendy Amara
"Okay Wendy, we have you ever combined finally. League and we are actually live in person. We are saying I, know I know let's start from the beginning. So what's your heritage? So my family came from what they might lack Yes, they came here in the nineteen seventies and then I was born here and my brother was born here and the originally came to Hollywood is funny because my. To my aunt, still live in the scene apartment building that they first came two years ago. Wow. Yeah. Crazy Ray. At one point they were invited to purchase the apartment building in the apartment building is near the border of Hollywood end those fees. Okay. Feeding in La. has become a hot property location where values of homes and apartment buildings and everything has skyrocketed anything boulder but I don't know ten times more than it would have been years ago. So it's interesting because back in the day they turned it down. To permit building because I think at one point, they were renting three different apartments or for I mean everybody has like a little apartment in that building. So that's part of why the owner was like. Would you guys up to purchase it and I think a fear? A fear is not knowing the rules of this new country, what they were getting into and people were. I remember my mom being like Oh no no I think that's too much for us to handle its and they could have actually afforded it back. Then they all would have pulled their money. So the moral of the story is I would be a millionaire. I. Bought this apartment building that's on the corner near the border of Hollywood near Lexington ear Hollywood handle species have you talked to them about it? No you know what? I haven't in years I remember low and I was like twenty over twenty years ago when I was in college, I was starting to learn about like wealth and property and how property gets handed down development of wealth over the years I remember then saying something to my aunt into my mom and be like you guys have an amazing opportunity where you could purchase the apartment building a two of my ex deliver to the state and they were looking at the time. You know that was a lot of money for us at the time. We couldn't see how can make that happen. So yeah all my God as these shadow. So that's so interested in like looking back like how with the story be different, right? Yeah. So if would have been me, I would have been like, let's pull our money and let's make it happen. Now no one was gonNA predict necessarily that see ray s off of a place. Yes has it has become but either way you just know if you're GONNA set for the next thirty years, it makes sense to own the building if half of the people renting or your family. Because you can count on them and the you know. Yeah. So it's interesting. Yeah. Now how the area has changed because it's going through like an urban renewal and so there's all these hippies moving like yeah gentle ricky gentrification. Oh. That's crazy. So you've been California at Your Life I've been in California my whole life except I lived in Spain for about nine months. Okay. Senior your college how did you decide that you go to college? So I I went to a community college. I didn't do all that great in high school. I was very distracted with. With, having fun and socializing a lot again. But it's interesting because I did really well in elementary and parts of middle school, and so I knew I had the capacity to do epidemically. In fact when I met up with people that I used to go to elementary school with they were like Oh. My God. But you wouldn't smartest people in our caused or you used to get straight They remember me getting awards for academics. So I knew I had the capacity to do But in highschool got really lost I got really depressed at tie-ins. There was just you know problems with friends or boyfriends or might focus was health sweat So I didn't actually focus that much on academics. So in typical in their community college which I loved and met some amazing friends that are still friends to this day and I think something's sparked in me that I was like, okay, I gotTA. Get my act together I got to figure out what to do to get together, and for that to happen I was like I got a transfer actually get on the and I saw people that were at the Community College for like ten years. I do not want to be that person I do not want to be twenty, seven and stuff. Can you call junk that there's anything wrong with that but for me I was like, no, I need to go to you know I need to go to college college and fell in love with Ucla Gone Eliot Matisse Salad, for Undergrad. For graduates collection. Elsa. WanNa do it from your vantage sociology okay. Because I loved you know, of course back to the socializing part learning about people learning about cultures. Yeah and you know it was interesting major and loved the campus I loved everything about learning. It felt like such a privilege to take your life and spend time learning rate full-time like that's it. That's doing. Yeah. It's all you do. Yeah. So that felt really empowering is you stayed at Ucla Graduate School too. I did okay I took a year or two years off in between I worked I came back. Yeah. What's your graduates urban planning interesting yes. Okay. Let me tell you about the school of Urban Planning's housed in was many years ago things have changed. Now, but was housed in the school social policy in school public policy in social planning, and there were three majors under that school urban planning social work in public policy. Okay. In all three of them interrelated to classes together and all that
Sturgis Motorcycle Rally linked to more COVID cases
"Updated stats. With respect to cove in 19 and the rally in Sturgis, and so Ricky did a little homework on that. Yeah, Interesting. Yesterday, they were saying 81 cases today another think 70. I don't I don't know if they had some false positives or whatever. We've seen that happen, but CNN today. Just a couple hours ago. Here's their headline. Experts feared the Sturgis motorcycle rally could be a super spreading event. More than 70 Corona virus cases are already linked to it. All right now. Think about this for 160,000 people. Or at the Sturgis event. I think you would have 70 Corona virus cases. If 460,000 people went to the grocery store, so so 1% would be 506,001% would be 4600 correct. Dave. You know what? You're good at math off the top. Your head. You are absolutely right. I got an e mail today from Aaron Harbor. Who is a very smart guy, and he mentioned this headline. He thought it was ridiculous. So you're right, Dave. He said 1%. That would be 4600 cases. Hey, said Keep in mind you wanna positivity rate of 5% or less? Okay? So he said 2% obviously would be ninety two hundred 1% would be 4600 cases right now they're 70 so 700.5 would be 20. 300 0.25 Theo, you're getting there. What you're getting there, 11 50, I guess or 11 75 Way to miss. So now I'm what so it's it's way low. So, he said. 70 cases is about 1/6 of 1%, which he said you can pretty much round down to zero. Eso. In his opinion, there has been zero effect. From Sturges in 70 cases out of 460,000 people now keep in mind. Those numbers could go up because those 70 could spread it to another seventies, even 700, but you'd have to get to 4600 cases. They even have 1%. And 1% is considered a really good number in the country. Like I said, you could go to the grocery store. And get covert. So I find it interesting. The way some people look at this, I guess. And CNN for one, saying it could be a super spreading event. And I know there's people listening right now that are probably angry. That it's even being presented this way.
Automating Patient Outreach with Ricky Hsu
"Welcome back to the outcomes. Rocket saw Marquez here such a privilege to have you tune in again today have the privilege of hosting Ricky Su. He is the CO founder and CEO. At provia health. He's a licensed pharmacist in California, an extremely passionate about technology and healthcare prior to CO founding PROVIA. Health Ricky managed multiple. Pharmacy Care Teams at specialty pharmacies, and at two of California's largest medical groups. The majority of his healthcare career has been focused on creating innovative care strategies for low income populations with complex care needs. Ricky's experience at the ground level and managed care had a huge impact and allowed him to identify major pinpoints when providing care to. It was here that gravy health mission and blueprints were drawn and day we get to dive into the work that he and his Co founder William and team are doing to the plainfield and around this area, and so with that I wanNA welcome to the podcast ricky. So glad you could join us today I saw pleasure to be here. Thanks for inviting me absolutely my friend and so first of all, before we dive into Provia health and Iris you. Know the product, the digital brock you guys have I WANNA learn a little bit more about you and what inspires your work in healthcare? Yes. I've actually always been really proud of that in healthcare. You can make a great living while helping people get better. So there's few industries that you can do that and unfortunate enough that healthcare is one of the right. So the pharmacist I used to help one person at a time at the counter and then an. Elvis phone or so on and when I answered managed care I realized that the decisions that I make in managed care canal sites, hundreds or thousands of people, and so now with pro hells on constantly you're gonNA ask myself you know how can we build something great and how can we build something? They'll end up positively impacting as many people's possible by especially those in underserved population. So that's what really allows you to enjoy the work that I'm doing. Right now love it. Yeah. I. Mean It's awesome and with digital health tools available today and you know some ingenuity and practicality and a little know how you could get really far in scaling what you could do one on ones population. So tell us a little bit more about Provia Health Ricky and you know how the businesses adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yeah. So appropriate health goal is to help Chelsea companies save time and resources by fully automating their. retried. So we do that by incorporating an intelligent chat lot with conversational artificial intelligence on the fronted, and then we pair that to a patient assessment platform that can automatically understand your health situation through emr records, and you know Ziv mentioned before our chat bots name is Iris stands for intelligent response and information system it automatically screens and assesses the patients to find out which services they need, and then we provide a platform where the providers can then monitor and fall in love with the patients all in one place. So Saves Lot I'm and makes it easier. You can imagine if you had a super well trained healthcare worker whether it's a nurse, a farm technician that's put. In charge of recounts your patients and now all of a sudden, they can read every patient's records in your entire system reach out talk to them simultaneously ask the right questions it's a craft service. Each one needs right and compare. That's right now where most of the staff in this area are pretty much doing it manually swamped and then can barely reach maybe yes you percentage of the entire population that they're in charge of it. So just imagine how many more patients will get the help they desperately needed if we can automate this entire process. Yeah nods definitely an opportunity. So are you guys mainly interfacing? You said healthcare companies? So is it mainly employers? Is the yeah so It's it's a beep business model and our main clientele is payers providers and. Okay. Airs providers and pharmacies. So you have these different stakeholders using the system how are you helping each so walk us through that you know how are you helping the payer? Are you helping the provider and Harry out so pharmacist the payer and the provider twined by both of them are very much involved in this whole patient outreach where they have to a proactive and whether it's chronic care management or its notice enabling services and reaching out to make sure that the patients get what they need. There's a lot of food insecurities right now, for example, homelessness or mental health and depression and those areas. So there's a lot of enabling services out there there are available to these patients, but they're not necessarily getting access and getting referred to the right proper care that they need at any given time. So it's important for the providers and the payers to be able to identify the patients quickly right screen them, risk, assess them, and get them quickly out to these services. So that, you know they prevent the deterioration, their care
Paris Hilton Opens Up About the Secret Terrifying Abuse She Suffered as a Teen
"On a story. About Paris Hilton that we first discussed last week, and this all goes back to a documentary about Paris Hilton. Right, Holly. Right. So this is a documentary that Colleen brought to our attention last week, and maybe we even talked about it before, But this is going to be on Paris Hilton's YouTube channel. It's called This is Paris. It premieres September 14th. And in it, she promised to get really candid about something that happened in her past that resulted in her experiencing a lot of trauma. And we were wondering. We're speculating last week what that could be now. I don't remember. Ultimately, the conclusion that you and Colleen came too. But the way we're just we're open to it, right. Oh, absolutely. I definitely This is a story that I look forward to watching When you said it's the 14th of September. Yeah, because I think Paris Hilton is a really sort of misunderstood, Generally speaking person. In media and her her role rather is misunderstood her role in media and pop culture because we have such a just Technicolor stereotype or caricature of what a Paris Hilton is, and I think this is going to peel back some of those layers that we can see. Organically. What How Paris Hilton would like herself to be presented in a way that maybe the caricature of the last 20 years hasn't Yeah, because when you think of Paris Hilton, you think of pink you think of that hot. And maybe you think of her being in D. J. If you've been following her past, 2005 got stuff stolen. Remember that? What was the name of that movie was removed. What was the movie based on like? The bling ring. Yes, the bling ring. Yes. So there was a movie made about people who used to go around and rob celebrities in the mid to thousands, and those people were just teenagers. Bored. Teenagers who are living in Calabasas at the Times will be school anyways. So Paris is opening up. About what exactly Went on when she was a teenager that caused her so much trauma and people dot com has the story in Paris says it was all about being at this boarding school called Provo Canyon School. Interesting. Paris Hilton stayed there for 11 months now, she said. The reason she was sent to the school is because her parents, Ricky and Kathy, were fed up with her partying in New York City all the time. It was really distracting at apparently. Paris went through a Siri's of boarding schools, and then ultimately, they decided to send her to this place called Provo Canyon School. Okay, now what do we know about it? Well, what we know about it from their website now. Is that Provo Canyon School? I'm just reading from the website where they say about us. Preval Canyon School is recognized as an intensive psychiatric youth residential treatment center. In Provo, Utah. Interesting. So that sounds more like That sounds a little more intense than just a quote boarding school right in Paris, Hilton says. When she was at this school that immediately after she arrived, she said, I knew it was going to be worse than anywhere else. She said the abuse he faced every day. Was really harsh, she said. From the moment I woke up until I went to bed, it was all day screaming in my face, yelling at me continuous torture, and she doesn't really elaborate on what torture necessarily means. But she does go on to say the staff would say terrible things. They were constantly making me feel bad about myself and bullying me, she said. I think it was their goal to break us down. And they were physically abusive, hitting us strangling us, She said. They wanted to instill fear in the kids, so we'd be too scared to disobey them. So I have a question.
UFC 252 Round-Up
"We are talking and may more specifically talking about the UFC and UFC two, fifty two which just happened over this past weekend. dray looked it looked good on paper for the main card right. And I was like, okay, we got a nice little main card. Overall. I really thought it. disappointed. A. Wasn't. It wasn't it was some weird circumstance. Is Not, the fighters falls yes. It's not like they all wanted or tried to go to decisions or anything, but some sheet happened that made it kind of weak. So I will talk about John Dodson. Showing up in doing nothing. Mood he's gun shy told you these headed someone's wrong sums? Are you gotTa drop the weight? You know it's not it's admit this is mental. This is a one hundred percent mental Dj Rodham, his soul Shang soon them he probably I think. So something happened because remember when Dawson arrived on the scene like he knocked out Tj dillashaw the magic man, but he was everywhere. Hands hit bricks for hands fast as hell you couldn't take them down. Like he was easily the number one number two, the fastest fighter in division. Easy. Maybe the entire UFC. But now it's like he's completely gunshot. And visibility. Didn't he just? Fuck this, he had so much fun beating up on John Dasa just like tossing him around. I don't know who John Dyson it's over this drop the weight it won't matter if you don't let your hands go. Yeah. Morale was having a blast Murrah was in his quarter just like that's easy lay. This is mile in after the fight through the headdress back on he just didn't care and do we both picked us and I can't remember I definitely did. White I feel terrible and morale is going to be a problem at bantamweight. He's. If. He continues fighting like this. The way he's you know just out wrestling guys like he's on a nice little fight he streaked. Yeah and he was able to out strike Dotson granted Dotson tried too much to to throw hands I. Don't I don't know what the game plan is for Dotson Eurofighter anymore like why watch them fight I go to the Jimmy Rivera finally what's what's cleaning I? Don't think there is one. Rob. is on a firefight winning streak last lost. What's to Ricky Simon Smoke. Yeah. Okay. That makes sense. Okay I. Remember there was a submission. So young has buzzer. By the way you might have won that fight yet move rob has been dominant these past few fights but this the dots performance impressive. I. Think he could be a problem but I put more of the blame on John Dasa because something mental is going on with this man is not up to his capability. Yet Very Weird I. Can't call it he needs a sports psychologist. He's recapture some late when you don't even try to let the hands go. That's when you got a problem. So next fight, Herbert, Burns versus Daniel. Pineda this is where you are right and I was wrong. A feeling this and like this. I I don't know another weird fight because I think burns was just dominated from the jump. Eight just he didn't seem to have it this night. No. Cash wait forty, five, I don't. I can't. Blame it on but. The elbows came down and it was a rap so. Whichever I mean yeah I mean. Significant strikes. Ten. For burned. Fifty, seven for opinion. Yeah. I mean like it'll be like this but I kind. Win this fight, but that's wild and that was in dominant fashion. Then we go to the next night jd s versus Rosen struck. and. Bump you know super buff. Different, body. Mustached. GPS. Didn't help him because he got rocked. And slumped on cage. So the thing about Rosen's struck is what I've noticed now is yeah. Okay. Everybody's GonNa lose the Francis in God like if you rush Francis and got gotTa, you're going to lose that's what's going to happen. So this fight, he was a little bit more patient picked spots really didn't do a lot in the first round. Waiting for eighty s kind of open up getting a little bit more comfortable like ease up on the guard and he's just let it has put away. But this division. I don't want to say that there's like a huge gap is not a valid Musa Tanko gap. That's we're going to call that gap that's shift that's it is absurd. Touching her, but it's a pretty significant gap in skill after steeping. DC's probably gone. I don't know skill wise because. Roy, as he is. With all the raw power, he's still a role as an enemy fighter. Roses stroke is a raw power like the striking's there but. What happens with Steve puts him on his back. And clearly debate Baker Take Punch. So I don't I don't know who's who's going to be a problem for steep A. At this juncture, we'll talk about it in a little bit because even though I think in God who's going to be better if they have another fight. I can't. Skill wise. It's different levels of this shit.
"I'm Martina. Abraham's Linga welcome back to NATO I have to be honest with you before we started the show I rarely thought about giving birth my indifference turned to fear and anger when I started to understand more about the American medical system and when I became aware of the Blackburn in crisis specifically like most people I assumed if and when my time came to have a baby, I'd go to the hospital I began to fear for mine and my future children's safety and grew angry at the idea that had have to settle for care that's less than I desire. Deserve. I started to question whether I wanted to have children at all the beautiful thing about my journey with natal is that I learned about an entire community that centers blackburn parents and their babies. I'm now more familiar with a network of midwives, dulas, providers, and healers who affirm the dignity and beauty in black breathing and intimately value black-eyed. Due to the history of anti-black blackness in the obstetrics and gynecology field. Much of their work happens outside of hospital I'd seen photos and videos of women all white giving birth in pools and at home. I assume all hippy dippy white people ship turns out. I was very wrong.

Amid surge in cases, Arizona readies new push to slow COVID-19 spread
"Nearly ninety percent of Arizona's I see beds are full Republican Governor Doug Ducey. ducey faces widespread outrage for downplaying the virus, and even obstructing local officials from acquiring masks in June as case numbers began to explode. Do see reverse course and allowed mayors to issue their own virus guidelines under growing pressure, but he resisted calls to pass a statewide mask mandate or reimposes stay at home order, which expired in May with little restriction on the state's reopening. Facing rising numbers June do see ordered bars and gyms to close again, but Arizona residents say the actions are too little too late. The family of a sixty five year old Mexican. American man who died of Covid, nineteen in Phoenix, is accusing Arizona. State officials of being directly responsible for his death in a scathing obituary in the Arizona Republic, the family of Of Mark, Anthony or Keesa wrote quote. His death is due to the carelessness of the politicians who continue to jeopardize the health of Brown bodies through a clear lack of leadership refusal to acknowledge the severity of the crisis and inability and unwillingness to give clear and decisive direction on how to minimize risk. This is or Qisas daughter Kristin an interview with A. Republican. Governor DC's got blood on a fan. He was late to close down the state. He was early to open X and. The manner in which he opened allowing things to go back as normal is, in my opinion, the reason why my dad is being buried today. We'll for more. We're going to Tucson to speak with a local leader. WHO's been standing up to Governor Doug Ducey. That's Mayor Ricky Romero. She is the first Latina and the first woman to be elected mayor of Tucson. She was previously. Tucson city council member for over a decade, the daughter of migrant workers we welcome you to democracy now Mayor Ramiro. Your thoughts on governor Ducey's responsibility. What do you want to see the state? OF ARIZONA DO? And what are you doing in Tucson? Good Morning Amy. Thank you so much for having me this morning. We have been in a state of crisis. Since governor ducey decided to hastily reopen the state. We were in a very good place. Coming to a plateau here in the city of Tucson relocated in Pima County in pima. Cownie, we were seeing twenty twenty four cases a day. It was a plateau now. We are seeing almost three hundred cases a day in Pima County. In a county of million people we. We are we see anywhere from five to twenty ICU beds, which is very very concerning in straining our doctors and nurses at our hospitals. We jumped up in front of Governor Ducey, a few mayors Mayor Gayle from Phoenix. Mayor Evans from flagstaff in myself Joe jumped ahead of the governor to call the stay at home. orders in to close down bars back in March He took our cue few days later, and with his executive order he tied the hands of mayors in cities and towns and county and county health departments throughout the state by preempting us from from doing anything that he wouldn't do. Most recently, he untied the hands of mayors. In counties throughout the state to do mandatory mask ordinances. Throughout the state, but what we have been seeing with Governor Ducey is a microcosm of what has been happening with trump in his federal response to this pandemic, which is tepid, a tepid response a pushback on science and what public health officials recommend that we do. Every day that governor Ducey Wade's. We see three thousand cases in Arizona and. And the crisis continues more lives lost, and so what we have been done doing here in Tucson is basically pushing the governor to do the right thing because it's a very real threat. If we do move ahead in front of him. The state legislature, the Republican controlled state legislature passed a bill about three years ago fourteen eighty seven that if any city does anything, any law that preempts the state that are stayed shared revenue could be pulled from us, and those are millions and millions of dollars. That, we could potentially lose and so in this crisis we see ourselves as mayors. In fear in fear for the lives of our communities in fear of for the inability for us to be able to do anything so, what mayors across Arizona and I have been doing his publicly pressuring the governor to the right thing. The one thing that he could do that could help is do. Is Institute a mandatory mask? Executive Order Statewide and he refuses to even do that.

Get that right. Awesome. You did very well Travis. I'm so happy to be on your show. Thank you so much. Thank you for joining me, and it might be the hardest pronunciation I've had. You helped me out before this I, asked you to say it I. Spelled out phonetically, so I probably won't say your last name again, but who? Else, I can say the first name I've got it going on. Thank you. Thank you for coming on and the first thing I'm gonNA. Ask You because I get asked this all the time because I like you I have ideas, and I want to do them and a lot of them I. Do and a lot of my don't do. Why so many different projects like? Why did you feel called to do so many different things? Oh Man, this is a this is a hard question, but I just love to do things and I love to do things together with people I love to you know actually I started traveling I always traveled since I'm young since I have a passport I obviously. I had this urge to go somewhere to find out. You know not to run away from something, but to go somewhere I was always drawn to fireplaces. Across the Atlantic duties. And Yeah So. Then I got to know my mom. Go friend at the time on a sailing trip, and so I got into sailing. And saving was just. It's amazing. I love saying I love being out at sea, and so forth and Yas, so I love to do different things you know, and I think adventures If you if you are on adventures, it's where life happens. You know out of the comfort zone. Many tear down walls of comfort zone is like Benue, fee your life, and when you do this like it. And you go, and you'll find out you explore. This keeps me going this your life actually yeah. I think one of the neat things about entrepreneurship. Just you know and starting different things is it gives you a similar feeling too? When you're traveling right because it's new, that's that's that's. The rush were probably after his. Yes, we like to see new places. Eat New foods, but the key is that it's something that we are not doing our regular life, and so these new projects that you're launching and trying out and starting, it's again. It's a new thing even if it's even if it's not getting out and traveling you starting a co working space is a new thing. It's something you haven't done before and I. Correct me if I'm wrong. That seems to be the draw right of just of a challenge. I think you'll like the enterpreneurs. We have a problem you know. So the thing is. We have to Shiny Object Syndrome okay, so there's something POPs up and you're like all. It looks Nice, and I think the problem with me is rather not to do things than doing things, so it's. More challenging for me not to start something, but although I think I have time and. I was working in most of my time. I worked for a corporations. Had good jobs I was well paid I was like I had a great life. Work life and it was really cool, but on the other hand you know I was wondering what is out there what I can do what I haven't done yet you know, and for whom do you go and work? You have to eight to five and you know like. It's it's the daily grind, and then you know at some point. I I asked myself. Why should I do that? And now I have the time to do different things and I laughed. I laughed to be the master of my time. I think this was always my biggest goal. To Mazda my own time. Yeah, we have a little quote or are saying that that Caitlyn and ricky who were parts of our location in the community, brought up, and and we kind of adopted it as well, and it's this idea that freedom is our currency, and so it's not saying that we don't grab the money, and we don't do businesses to make money, and we don't want to be good business people, but it's prioritizing freedom and one of those kind of people don't think about is time. Right is like we we talk about. About Oh, I wanNA make enough money, so I can have enough saved away so I can retire, or I WANNA be location independent. We hear that a lot and I talk about that a lot rate, but the other. The third part of that is the time and that's something that I think people don't prioritize enough is saying okay well, what am I if I'm working towards something and give out my time? What am I getting back and is that as valuable as having my time? Because a lot of times, the answer would be no. Yeah. Absolutely also triggers if you don't mind I want to tell a little bit of my story, so the thing is you know like the background? I did lots of stuff. Also jobwise I couldn't keep longer with the company for two years I had to. I was always drawn by our stuff anyways, but one time I thought you know like I was so disappointed by by one of my bosses. Said I'm going to create. That's for sure, but I didn't want to quit in the blue. I wanted to do something meaningful brings something meaningful to my life, and then I thought I.

I'm I I. Don't think it's going to be in September, but we'll see what we're. We're going by what the industry is. Is Planning Charter? Data time, but Yeah, it's it's. It's not the same right. Yeah, we'll just put a little pause on it but I'm sure it'll happen. It's just a matter of. Scheduling the right date when everyone feels, we've got press pause, and then we press play there. You go exactly old school old score. One of the things that I guess is. A positive that I've tried to find during this pandemic and I'm sure you agree because your family guys all the time. We've gotten to spend with family. Right and our kids and kind of just be still with them. It's it's gotta be That's kind of special and and being one place right? You know it's it's.

"Idea. I believe in being honest with our listeners and that means exposing you to my flaws as a human being. I'M TERRIBLE AT TECH. Always have been. I look upon the rise of the computer with dread and so- SONAL has spent most of her time as my assistant talking me through or trying to convince me to give different things on the computer at try and I usually don't want to because I'm afraid something's GonNa blow up but this I have to say and SONA and Goral you can back me up on this if you believe. I'm telling the truth during the weeks that we've been quarantined. I've had to do a lot of stuff on my own. I think I'm starting to get pretty good. What do you think well? I'm worried you're going to get two big ahead and start Boston US around tech wise. I'm not worried about that at all. I am proud of you CONAN. I think that you've come a long way because before if I was like okay open zoom. You'd be like Oh what's zoom. You know what it is but you act like you don't know and I think that you've come a long way. I have a mental block about technology. But because we're doing this podcast and were separated and I have to figure stuff out on my own I often am sitting at my computer and I'll be honest. I'll have you guys on speaker phone and you'll be saying now. Press Control all seven. Okay now go up to the file window now. Scroll down to bleep BLURP. Now Press blurp of bleep and BLURP. There should be a yellow box. Don't hit that box. Hit the green box now. The green box should show you a picture of Eleanor Roosevelt. Don't click on that and slowly we make our way through it. You have been doing very well. Yeah I to say I mean because we are still doing shows and you shoot your things you upload them onto the file sharing website. I mean you. You should be really proud of yourself. You're basically doing everything to keep the show on the air so nice job so you're talking to me like a two year old who just successfully made a poopie cute doing so good. You're doing resigned. Jeff you did APOB losers Golden K. Let's do it should be all by yourself? Yes you were stupid. But you're not very impressed when you can do something like this. Did you guys know that my brother is staying with me? Hey Oh wow look at brother. I don't think I've ever mentioned I have a twin. What the hell. How how'd you do that raising going? Wow Get out of here. We're trying to record something. I'm fascinated. Okay well you know what I love. I love when people do visual jokes in an place. Let me explain to people what just happened. We're all on zoom as we as we do this podcast and Matt Gorlic through some of his chicanery trickery and skulduggery justified himself walk in behind him in lean over and wave. How long did it take you to figure that out? It's just a background change and you just shoot a little video of yourself beforehand. Yeah yeah well. I'm sorry none. If you could see that it was really not meant for a podcast. I suppose it was meant for you a little treat for you. Who knows if it'll even go in? I really enjoyed that a lot. I did too. I think CONAN's upset 'cause we were complimenting him and now you attention away while we were complimenting him but Conan I really am proud of you. I'm so proud of you. All right all right. That's that's good handsome but I really am. I honestly yeah. I'm a dragging things. I'm clicking things I'm control all-seeing and control all V ing. Yeah you're copying and pasting. Yeah yeah kind of well. It's simple just to say control all seeing and control being I think than copy paste. You're right there's no alt- when you copy paste. What are you all think? Well there's different ways. They have a different computer. Mind is from the fifties vintage cardboard punch cards. Yeah I actually. I use a computer that I bought off NASA. It's vintage it's in one thousand nine hundred sixty two. Mala decks nineteen seventy five. Jj and so before we do do anything on the computer. I have to stay up all night making punchcards by hand but I did successfully spot sputnik about an hour ago. I'm feeling pretty good. Do you think you're going to go on to do more computer related stuff after this? Now that you've kind of got some courage. No I think the minute sauna you you tell them what I'll do because you know me better than anybody moment we get back to the office. All of this. We'll just erase from his mind. It'll if I if I'll say hey Conan you on his setup zoom meeting. He'll be like I have no idea what that is. I don't know what to do. I've never done that before and I'll say and who were you. I my brain is an etch sketch. It really is. My brain is an extra sketch and developed this over the years of doing the TV show. But I would learn everything I needed to know for that day. The guests today is Matt Leblanc and he likes onions and he also likes to ski and he also learn everything. I needed to know and the minute the show was over. I would shake my head and all of that would be gone. I have an idea because we're running out of pre taped interviews and we're going to have to do some with guests that are remote. We should do it. That the guest is set up technically by you. You have to walk them through how to set up their Mike Record and just see how that goes. That's like asking a small rabbit to build a dodge challenger. It's just not going to be well. There's a factory in Detroit and all the equipments there get to it little bunny you don't I love to do. I used to do this if my I used to. Tell my dog's okay. Here's what I need you guys to do. I need you to go. Listen to me. Listen to me. I need you to get to my accountant's office. It's in the mid Wilshire district and he just gets the fifth floor. There are files their files. Are that pertain to my taxes. In one thousand nine hundred ninety. Six what you're GONNA do. Their expression is so good because I I they just look at you and with this kind of lost like I'm going to try. I'm going to try and do this. But just picturing their paws going through my files. Always amuses me good. That was good all right. Well we'll be cutting down. I suppose that's really good up going me. How do I hold up in this? Time of pandemic I would say I'm holding up pretty well. I think you know. Obviously it helps. We're lucky that we get to keep working so I I obviously feel for people who can't work and that is awful. This isn't you know this is a time when if you have any kind of job as we do where we can keep doing it you just feel so grateful that And and the fact that I can. I talk to my writers I for the show and I talked to my producer and we try and scheme and we're trying to make stuff. I think that's incredibly helpful. That's helping me a lot. I don't know about you so now how you doing you know what I want to say. I know I don't know if we can even talk about this but if we don't do shows the staff doesn't get paid so I mean thanks for still doing shows other. I don't know what I would do because yeah we'd stop getting paid to be honest. I did really look into Israel way to keep doing shows but give everyone the shaft. Oh they don't get paid and I had a team of lawyers. I spent a lot of money looking into it. I spent tens of thousands of dollars working hard to see if there is a way to keep doing the show and gut the staff but I was told that that would quote not look good and also it's illegal to make people work for no money especially during a pandemic so yeah. Yeah thank you I was actually going to thank you but now I'm not so you still have to thank me it because I failed to screw you and the staff over because I failed attempt. Yeah you have to thank me now thanks Conan for failing to destroy us. Oh well thanks CONAN for failing to destroy US and thank you for say this. I'll say this The TV show staff and the PODCAST staff and everyone included here. People are doing an excellent job of sort of rallying round and figuring ways to do their job from home and contribute. So that's kind of neat to see it's it's you know that the silver lining of some of this and there is some silver lining. Is You get to see people adapt and get very creative about how to do things? And so I think that's been really lovely and Gauri. I'm including you in that and Youtube play and Youtube Adam Saks in you to engineer. Becton start calling him. Engineer Becton feels like like enterprise. We'll also I was thinking more like I'll start asking him or making him to wear a little train conductors cap. How's it going engineer? Becton ooh.

You know what happened if someone that police station. So they've been talking seriously for too long a comedy. Podcast dispatch a constable. Yeah so yes again. Yeah Wha- in this series which I really like the second series is coming out in a few months twenty four April April and I really like the first series the first season and I'm suspicious curious about like cheese. What happens with this character next because the first season is all about you coping with the death of your wife? Yeah and then. There's a lot of really funny stuff in the series but it's dark. It's almost like you set yourself a challenge to say I'M GONNA put a guy in the worst situation possible which lost the love of his life and now we're going to see where I can find the humor exactly and and and that was a challenge going from you know it goes to the city. Ns and nonsense and annoying and trivial and all those things and in his head he was he was suicidal and depressed. So let's make funny the reason he doesn't kill himself because the dogs hungry. Yeah yeah so that to be an that sounds trivial. But it's not. It's actually true when you look at it. You know you have to feed the dog the dog and the dog and do anything and and then he gets through the second phase like now. Casey's okay okay. If I don't kill myself. Oh what do I know I can? I can always kill myself of that. Vote back on so until then I'm going to punish the world now. I'm going to star sign. Exactly I've got nothing to lose. I can say what I want. We saw our wish I could be and we do closes instances in there the Ivan in real life and I haven't been able to do what he did because I live tomorrow. Yeah that'd be consequences with him exactly. I didn't care and the other thing we are is and this is the staple of comedy particularly. Sitcom is an ordinary guy or go trying to do something. They're not quick to do and his is. He tries to be this uncaring psychopath. And he can't and he's got a conscience because about the dog he cares about his nephew. Cares about the Old Lady's graveyard. He cares about the younger so he's his burden is he's a nice guy. He's trapped on even do what he wants to feel. Better I love is the thing in the show where you have this absolute slob that sits opposite you. Who's the photographer? And he's this heavy guy who it's terribly and you start talking about how he's got this little rule of fat on the back of his neck and you just want a pinch it talking about it and what. I love is that he doesn't care no he doesn't know you'll say things that it works for me because he is so he's like a teletubby. He's like somebody he's impervious to does. He says you know. I'm a stressful where we'll have our roles and he knows he knows the. That's what friends do. He knows his affection. It's a funny thing you're bringing up. Which is that. I think we're the same this way. And then there's a lot of people in comedy are really mean stuff is safe for the people we care about the most and I'm I can be so polite to people that are dreadful to me. Oh yeah anyway don't because they. I don't really care if you don't WanNa be embroiled. Yeah don't want to be part of their causal web. You don't care what you do. That's when you walk away when you don't care you know you have nothing to say about them. You're writing I don't want to. I don't want them spending any time in my brain because it's it's a waste of my time right you've spent forty years on this earth. No one really knowing who you were. You weren't US exactly didn't define me in fact I feared and I've still got a little bit of contempt for celebrity. Oh yeah that's obvious and really never cared about money or or fengs as long as I bear some mates. That's all I. That's all I cared about. And so when I got into this saw a game it was it was laughable. It was ludicrous. But will they cared about the first time? I did the Globes what they care about. What is it about them that the richest they're worried about their pickup symptoms of their of their own. Terrar- They yes men. It's like canal. It doesn't matter my we're all. We're all going to die soon. Levin fucking matters just chill out. This is getting very morbid. But I I find gravestones in and graveyards to be very pompous. This must be set aside for me and this stone will mark where my remains are and it must I think what are you talking about in geological time this will all this the minute or super nature and humanity super nature. Everything is done. It's quite existential and I think maybe it's because I'm an atheist because I know this is all we've got this. We've God and I talk about that. That people are offended by that. Like a you don't know maybe I'll live again. I don't fear death or other. I don't feel being dead because I will know about it. That's the best thing about being dead. It's like being stupid is only painful for others and so I don't I don't really worry about it. I have a sense of mortality. Although I don't WanNa be total six months to live now be awful.

I have it pinned to my jacket with a safety pin. The word Ethernet the way. A mother puts a note on a child's ski jacket. It says be nice to my boy which is actually a note. My mom pinned to my jacket. Be Nice to my boy about two years ago. No she did. She pinned a note to our member that had a giant safety pin. It was like be nice to my boy and she sent me off to nursery school and I was savagely beaten. And they took the safety pin off and they stopped me with it. So thanks mom. Who's out there?

"ricky i" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"It's like a pop up video. Oh this fucking guy and we're making fun of it or is it. There's some of that. And maybe there's some Shit we gotta get a hold of this guy. I think if there was a new guy wasn't on the radar. We'd look at sometimes. Who the fuck is that and and try and get more information but it was more just kinda watch and see what they were doing and NC in. Who's out there? And what the Hell's going on on the other side but yeah there were there. Were guys every once in a while you'd think holy Shit. Where'd he come from right? I don't know it's just fast. Anything about you. Guys gathered around to watch A competitive pay per view. Were you surprised to see Ricky? As the W world champion. I mean he was obviously a different style. Wrestler than what Vince was looking for at the time. Even though you guys were still pushing the baby face champion. He wanted to hulk Hogan not necessarily a ricky steamboat. Were you surprised that they went that direction? With steamboat. I wasn't no because it was a different territory. It was a different style of a bookie in a different audience like that and bricky matched up with flair. Read matchup with flair. Hey be called. Ric flair no steamboat matched up with flair and they created some classics and they were fun to watch whether no matter what I mean. We enjoyed watching those matches. They were good matches if you enjoy watching wrestling than you would enjoy watching that. And they put on clinics when they went out and had these matches so it was a different audience. It was a different type of promotion with Crockett Promotions. They were promoting the glitz glamour in the larger than life they promote we russell. So Ricky was perfect for that you You saw the trailer. Gm ashes with flair and steamboat. Did you know what I did but I? I couldn't tell one one from the other to be honest with you at the time. Did you think that you were watching? One of the greatest matches ever or was it just another match because those bashes sort of grew in lower and a lot of people look back at wrestling back in the day with rose colored glasses and CEOS the best and then they go back and watch it and it doesn't necessarily stand up for the test of time I think these do. I think they're great matches today and they were great masses back. Then let's say you. Did you think you're watching one of the all-time great matches at the time? I think I was watching damn good matches. I don't know about greatest of all time because you know this'll when when you look at things I look at it through different lenses I look at what the attraction was withdraw was with the buzz was did he deliver. Did it tell tell a story and I look at things like hulk and Andrei wasn't fucking buddy Rogers and Liu says however there's nothing can match that at because of the story and because of the execution of the story I thought that was just unbelievable. Great storytelling and I look at steamboat. In Florida they were really good matches and they were and you can't take anything away from that and they do hold up you know why because they wrestling matches right and I think that when you produce the basics in the fundamentals that will always be in vogue and I think that that will always work You know I I look at Shawn. Michaels and the undertaker wrestlemainia good God That holds up still today because the fundamentals were there and for me. The story was there. There was emotion in that. Because you're talking about one of these. Something's got to go. You know the streets of the career and I enjoy story a lot if you give me a good score story in execution than I'm hooked US talk about Wrestlemania Five. Of course you're involved wrestlemainia five with Roddy Piper and Morton Downey Junior. This is one of those shows where they're actually trying to counter program you. They're giving away a clash of the champions for free on. Tbs and the headline is flare steamboat. For the world title They did this. The prior year with clash the champions one against Wrestlemania four and I guess this is turned about fair play. You guys tried to counter program their stockade with with your survivor series. And then you counter programmed their stampede with The Royal Rumble. What did you think of them trying to counter program you with Flair Schema? More power to them they learned something And when you go back and you look at Wrestlemainia five it. The time was the the largest pay per view revenue in the history of pay per view. So when when you look at that okay. And that's with the other guys counter programming us I'll take that that's real. The trilogy comes to end in May They finally have their big payoff in. It looks like Flares GONNA come out victorious afterwards. There's a post-match angle that's become pretty legendary with Terry funk who was assigned to be one of the judges Steamboat said he didn't know the whole thing was going to happen after the match but he very quickly realizes okay. They've got plans and they don't involve me for the world title picture instead. He starts very brief. You'd with lex Luger for Lexus. United States title after lex turned heel by attacking ricky they wrestle at the great American Bash. Eighty nine pay per view with legs winning by after he elects with a chair. And then RECCI. Ricky just takes ball and goes home again. He leaves the soon the NBA soon after that. So this is the second time. He's left the promotion that way and of course he left the WBF in similar fashion. Now comes back to the WWF in Nineteen ninety-one and this is when things are a little different because no longer are we just having ricky come out and the karate man outfit and the long black tights on the the Ninja boots now. We're having him go full. Blown Gimmick a different era nineteen ninety-one. We need Goddamn pal when aged wear dragon costume and start blowing fire. Talk to me about how he decides to come back to the company. What that meeting is black with Vince? I think it's been written that. When he came back he goes to. Vince has to meet with him. Where you're part of those meanings that you know about them. When did you first hear about the Dragon Concept? Talk me through this yeah. I wasn't part of the meetings with ricky initially and I was part of meetings with bents where he talked about. Do we want to bring Ricky steamboat? Back and I don't want to bring back Just Ricky steamboat. Goddamn you always dragon. How do we capitalize on that? I want you know the Dragon. And what if he breathed fire? What if he came out the original Canada concept behind it was? You'll like the Chinese dragons that you see in the parades and everything like that kind of an elaborate ring entrance with big huge dragon and all this shit going on and then is a way that we can breathe fire The fire-breathing was what dictated the rest of the look. What dictated everything else because he could only wear certain materials and do certain things if you can go out and breathe fire so you start. I started exploring Already how to breathe fire Again kids this was before Google and the Internet and computers. So you didn't have that resource. You Start Looking in trade magazines and you start looking at the circus acts and you start looking at Place on Coney Island The freak shows and domain defend anybody. That's what they were called. And I believe will win out to the gentleman that ran the freakshow coney island we doing some other things at the Bobby Heenan show and just different stuff. And I remember using him as a resource. Say Hey you got a fire breather. And he says I've got a guy I know a guy and he's in the circus The only thing is is that these guys are very protective. They don't WanNa you know they're not gonNA teach teach you how to do their gimmick type thing because you're not gonNa want to capitalize on it long story short. We got in touch with the ethics guy. The same was Brian. La Palm He was with great American Circus and trying to track down someone who is on the road all the time again without the use of cell phones. You we finally got a hold of of him and went back and forth and said here's what we would like to do. And here's what we're looking for you could you? Do you think that you could teach someone how to do what you do? And he's like man. I've been doing this since I was a kid You just can't learn it overnight. But if they were willing to to put the time in and and really put the effort in then yeah I mean I I probably could. It's just the discipline said well. What's that worst he How much how much would would we need to pay you to to teach someone how to do it and we came up with a number remember how much it was? I think is maybe fifteen hundred bucks two thousand dollars something like that. And where are you going to be for an extended period of time that we could basically just come down and spend the time with you? They were booked in Lauderdale. Some like that It was the the east coast of Florida and they were in a Lucca Mall. Parking lot for week in so said how we come down. And we'll you know in between shows will train so this was this was Me and steamboat. We went down and Brian lived in a trailer with his girlfriend. They'd get married. She was like one of the high wire people and he was the fire breather so they had a nice little trailer on the on the lot and ricky and I went and every day we would go and he. He taught taught us how he was able to to breathe fire in the first time you know he was he was very very very ain along on safety and and checking things and make things right so every time he would. Do you. Check the wind outdoors. We're not controlled atmosphere. We're outdoors in a lot and it's a slow Kabuki Ish. But he shows us. How does it all this shit? And now he's he's going to blow fire. He's going to do it in the second time he does it. He blows his huge flame of fire and it comes back in his face catches on fire and Ricky looks at mangoes and goes. You made fucking low fire..
"ricky i" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"So is Ricky steamboat. And that is our topic today. We're excited to be talking about ricky. The Dragon steamboat. I WanNa the all time greats. And we're excited that you're here with us today. Bruce and now you've been busier than a one armed paperhanger wrestlemainia season is upon us And by the time you're listening to this I guess there's some things going down and Saudi Arabia You Know Daddy alrighty. Let's keep moving here ricky. The Dragon steamboat a start. At the beginning I guess we should talk about when he first came into the company. That's nice and eighty-five but he already had a long and successful career. Before he got there. He started his professional wrestling journey on the high school wrestling team. And I gotTa tell you. He's one of the rare guys whose real legal name may have been better than his wrestling. Name Richard Blood as that not hold him old Dick Blood. Dick Blood should have been a wrestling name. I mean this way. Better than steamboat. Amaral you WANNA go out and now coming to the ring in Red Dick Blood but it sounds like A. He'll not well. It sounds like something they've got better. Early Delays Eases alrighty. I do like the name Richard Blood for Real. And if he turned heel he could be dick blood and then you can have the baby faces cutting promos. Dick Blood. I'm coming for you. I'm GonNa get me some of that. Dick Blood would have been great. Yeah Dick I'm GonNa make you bleed all right. You'RE GONNA pay the price Dick Blood. Yeah it's getting done with you. I'm going to say and he bloodied Dick. Are We Jewelry? Dick so hard. Oh you started it. Oh you know what? Come on Shane. That blue cheese now sponsor this week because I have a natural transition or to Let's talk a little bit about you. Know what his original plan was he wanted to be. A physical education. Teacher goes to a two year college. He's got the intentions of transferring to Tampa University to get those other two years and a guidance counselor told him it would be a two to three or wait to get an Tampa to become a physical education teacher because so many teachers had transferred down to Florida from the North so so in. Nineteen seventy-one his senior year at the high school there in Gulfport. He captured the State Championship and Ricky says one night himself on. A couple of guys drove across town to The old armory in Tampa. They sit front row wearing their amateur wrestling shirts from high school and He thinks this could be fun to watch professional wrestling. And maybe be a participant and peaked his interest a little bit I when his girlfriend moves away to a vocational school and His girlfriend's roommate. This vocational school is the daughter Verne. Ganja of course eventually burn one day visits his daughter and he starts talking to Ricky's girlfriend and she mentions that her boyfriend is a collegiate wrestler. Toda what a cool little introduction and would've I guess it's one of those six degrees of Kevin. Bacon that probably exists for Verne Ganja on some level and professional wrestling does it not some. Then she went on to marry Larry's of Bisco. What a small world when he really being weird right but you know. Here's here's the great thing which which will won't get into well. Okay I'll I'll tell the story when he asked me. How did Ricky steamboat get his name when you go from Dick Blood all right before we go any further We're a little head here bruce. How did Ricky steamboat get his name? Well ricky went to work for Eddie. Graham Down in Florida and a there was a famous wrestler. The East work in Florida by the name of Sam steamboat Also Hawaiian and Eddie just took one look gams. Is You look like Sam? Steamboat changed her name. Ricky steamboat and Jackie Jerry. Briscoe we're also part of this and that they wanted him to be a steamboat. The the thought about maybe making Briscoe. But they didn't look enough like Briscoe and the broncos are very funny about their name. So that's how they made him a steamboat. Just by hey you look like somebody. So you're going to be cousin or nephew. Irs Niece or something like that. Go Navy Graham named him. Because he didn't want people talking about Dick Dick's blood so in Ricky's in tenth grade he wrestles Mike Gossett. Who is a senior and ricky remembered apparent with blonde hair and a bandage on his forehead standing and cheering for Mike? And of Course Mike. Gossip is Mike. Graham and his dad in the crowd is eighty. Gram Mike Wound up beating R- he'll points eventually This all becomes a a real thing and he got his name his name because they were Gone to New York in Eddie and Dr Jerry. Graham was the original Graham Heating Graham either and Dr J. Grandma's the guy that Vince McMahon looked up to as a heat. Right yes is the youth. Want Amichi's like bleach. His hair blond look lettuce cigars with hundred dollar bills in the fifties and by God not. He didn't lie with fifties loaded with hundreds but it was in nineteen fifties nineteen sixty shit like that anyway. He shouldn't smoke kids Eddie to they he wanted tag team with Dr Jerry Graham. So he changed named Graham. It's just little shit that will fuck and stay with you for a lifetime. Arn Anderson looked like God. Damn one of them Anderson boys so they said we'll fuck. When don't we make you Goddamn Anderson? Because Noah gives a flying fuck about a large lundy of leave the person who actually suggested that was jd. He pointed out. Mardi getting dressed in the locker room when he remarked Hey He looks like an Anderson and Ted off they go or Andersen born the origin. Stories of names there Something which probably revisit sometime. Anyway vern tells Ricky's girlfriend. Have Ricky Send me as resume. Which where he did. One thing leads to another woody. No Ricky's endurance. Training camp become a professional wrestler. This is also the same training camp that that a few years prior produced the nature boy ric flair It's pretty interesting. This old school style of training that Verne was doing it's twelve weeks of rigorous training with Verne and his head trainer. Who is going to go on to be known as the Iron Sheik? Talk a little bit about vern. School and how notorious it became. Well Shit Man. I mean notorious yet to be a double tough motherfucker to last more than a day. They're so burn was of the old school in Burr. Believe that if you weren't in shape and if you weren't physically superior to everyone around the by God you just shouldn't be a wrestler and burn. Believed you know He. He came from that school. Blow people up Damn near kill him with physical exertion and then beat the shit out of him in the ring and if they come back well then maybe maybe he'll spend some more time with them to train them learn them. The Arts of Fission wrassling business but earn earn Vernon training. These guys To to be tough I mean you are or you aren't tough but firm trade you to be tough and you had to be tough to survive his form of trading a lot of squats lot of running the steps and Just beat downs and you had to know your hold. You had to know how to wrestle. If you didn't know it before you got there and you had the intestinal fortitude to lash sure sell new it if you made it all the way through because he just felt that way now the funny thing about burs school is is if you were a shooter. You're an amateur wrestler then to learn what you didn't need as much training as some guy some football players some guy coming off the street who was just in good shake and historically the shooter's for the most part came out burns. Camp never really made much of their career other than being great rustler's A great shooters. But they didn't draw a lot of money. They didn't have personality. Because Verne wasn't a a big proponent of larger than life personalities Verne was all about the basic wrestling saverne like wrestlers. Billy Robinson didn't have any personality but good God. Could he go? He was an incredible wrestler. But a lot of the guys man that came through there that were amateurs never made it beyond opening or mid card matches. And you think of some of the greats that did come through there a lot you first name come to mind. Brad wranglings who is an incredible teacher? First of all good God Double tough great trainer I would suggest to when we talk about great trainers throw Brad rankings in there because of some of the people he's trained Brad. Kinda got it that you know. You've gotTa have some personality as well but Nobody you know chic ir shape. That was after. He Changes Gimmick to the iron sheet in it was just. It was a different philosophy and getting through burns. School was pure hell for those who actually were able to survive it. Those did I think were better on the other side for it. So the training as you said in Verne's organization goes down and MINNESOTA WERE ERNEST FROM. This happens for Dick Blood in nineteen seventy four and seventy five. He makes his professional wrestling debut in the Awa using his real name. Rick Blood and of course. He also wrestled a few times as Dick Blood before the end of the year though he's back in the sunshine state here. He's working for eighty grams championship wrestling from Florida. And that's where he picks up. The last name steamboat. He was quoted as saying. I'll never forget it. I was sitting in office with Jack and Jerry. Briscoe eighty look a lot like Sam steamboat. We're not going to say your son will make you his nephew and after ricky wrestled Verna Verna called Eddie. Graham told him about ricky and after Ricky Russell back in high school Eddie kept tabs on Ricky's amateur career through junior and senior year. So Eddie remembered ricky was when Verne told him about him and of course when Ricky came to eighties office after an stadium. There eighty told ricky how he remembered and keep tabs on him. His whole life and Ricky at that point was I mashes in Florida. The RIG announcer said Dick. Blood is unable to make it this evening. So the substitute is Ricky steamboat. The fans of course remembered Sam steamboat. So got ricky over immediately and Ricky steady forgot about his name change to seem boats. He was wondering what the announcer was talking about and he went over and pulled the announcer and said hey. I'm Dick Blood. I'm here and the announcer said shut up getting your corner and the name change of course definitely worked and Eddie would decide to team Ricky in his son Mike Together because Eddie and Sam steamboat were a team and any wanted to put them against the Hollywood. Blonds BUDDY AND JERRY BROWN. Of course this is before. Steve Austin and Brown filming but I guess that's kind of fun because years later where he would work with a different set of Hollywood blonds in Austin. Talk to me. A little bit about Buddy Roberts Jerry Brown this version of the Hollywood blinds. I don't think we've talked about them ever before. Well Shit they were. I believe in the May have started in Florida but I know that they were a team in actually Hollywood but also the first time that ever saw was in Louisiana and they look like Shit if you asked me the both looked you know old and Kinda crappy. Whatever reason Buddy Roberts always looked old a find old crappy? I'm I'm really I don't know what to say didn't have bought didn't have like very athletic body And just you know there's people that always look like they they're fifty within the could be twenty two and they look like they're fifty. I don't know why it was way they looked old. And crappy. Just fucking tickle man descriptive. Thank you for that and keep going. Well they did and they look like they wanted to be young and hip and cool and buddy was was obviously a lot younger than he looked. But they were the Hollywood blondes and Buddy. Of course the curse of the good worker. You know buddy. Roberts was unbelievable worker but buddy was very colorful win. The camera was on. He was extremely colorful cameras off But they were a pretty good. You know middle of the road Journeyman tag team and when Jerry finally hung it up and bill walks is the one that put Buddy Roberts with the free birds of course Michael and Bam. Bam like wait. Don't tell me no third free bird. They don't just telling you fuck this shit late. We don't need no blurry Rogers with us. The fuck what the fuck. We don't do that fast. Forward few years they figured it out. I think so. Yeah the Hollywood blogs they were pretty good to really good workers in the ring buddy. Obviously much better than Jerry But he was workhorse but he was on the winning end. Guys asked kicked and Jerry got heat. He was the bump machine that became the The reputation of Buddy Roberts as a member of the free birds and after working for championship wrestling from Florida for about a year. He goes to the Carolinas and makes a name for himself of course with Jim. Crockett promotions is important to remember that asks. He's making these different shots and wandering from territory to territory ricky still under contract to Verne and this is something that doesn't happen these days but it certainly happened was very common back in those days..

Does I think so. It's like I and I'm GonNa just say I'm GonNa like I'm tipsy is hail. It went viral so over we went out. We went on a tour but it was more of. It was more on monetize traffic at the time and at a time when that when that video hit me so much money money like just off traffic that was coming out page when you go viral every bite like literally every like it like a chat room on your time line when you go viral and yeah it's crazy. It was good though. What would you say is the crazy thing? That happened on a tour with the with a pretty ricky Oh boy everything everything. Yeah I bet I could only I bet I mean 'cause back in the day I feel like that was really I mean a year nowadays like you know boy bands and boy like an groups are kind of feel like they're coming back now but back then he was really really at the height of you. You know what I'm saying like not only like instinct actually voice but also like immature and pretty ricky beats who like it was really popping. Everybody had babies during during that time. That's all you guys were. Putting out was making music in they they may have been the tops in getting women because of the sexual nature of the music right in the in the hotel room. You'll know how they got in May a man talking about pleasing women putting the women. I was not what we were hearing in silver. Everybody was like Oh my God how to and then your guys is music videos. See for me. It's maybe like maybe a fan girl moment of like going back to remembering what it was like when a video would come out and then you had all the songs and it was. I wasn't in the club yet. So I was still like I wasn't out whatever was on. Bt Not Uncut. Whatever I could get access to? That's what it felt like. It was almost like Nadi to watch this attack. Naughty Nikki was honestly for us. I feel like they wrote so many articles on us and we did make the baby right go up by eighty percent. They tried to they try to ban us from certain countries. Because we was it was real sexual in things like that like when you go to those conservative countries this year when you wild on stage talking about you know who go eat the Pussy Lila's eat pussy like when you start to say things like that they start looking like yo we can't have have them here and we was. We was just wild like rb. Yeah we Yeah we was like the girls it sex was a sport back.

So it's true we have one. Guess what Yeah. Yeah so she was like millions of others and I was like wow so it just I guess the whole sex appeal amuse Jacob like the like you said the dance scene in hip role in and all that like the whole combination. I feel like it just takes women mind to different places. The fellas get to capitalize on. I mean it was. It was different back then. You know what I'm saying like I mean now a lot of people talking about fucking in some rb songs. It was back then but it's not the same impact Rami especially back then. Because I mean look if you even look at the the heavy armed groups back. Then or the early one's voice amend the most they said it was all make love to you but you wanted to get married two boys men I she non somebody listening. Okay I remember the towel.

"One of the biggest like hip hop boy bands and the game to Here's an academy to learn how to build your credit. You know what I'm saying. How how did they have a really all started from me? Actually being on tour in two thousand nine and realizing that I could make money off of social media like always been a hustler since day. One I was in sixth grade. You Know Selling Candy Same Two thousand dollars a week at ten people working for me. I'm also ten ten employees dope ass but yeah so so every says Dan. I was always entrepreneur at heart. Like always see my Momma Hustling and see my dad hustling My Dad had his own store. My mom was selling Avon Crystal. So I I was always seeing my my parents always hustling so I felt like I that rubbed off on me. I duNno I dunno if his neck thing I don't really know but even been on tour in a row on my first love was always business. Yeah right and is messed up. I went to school learning how to type. But I ain't GonNa go there. Ah But when I actually was on tour I got a call from a guy named Matty Jason. Hey I can make some money off of tweeting was a company called my likes so so at the time I was just figuring out a way I can grow a massive following as quick as possible and what I realized was I can take the identity of these different celebrities. Or William Welfare Kevin Hart. Whoever was hot at the time and I can create parody account with their pages and once I did that the pages was growing exponentially initially fast like it was going crazy but it was like I'll have a a thousand followers and a week later? Have Twenty thousand followers. Instead started growing growing I was like all right cool because I was a celebrity at the time but my brain only go so fast nobody wants to follow twenty spectacular so I had to basically horizontally scale scale the business in once I did that I started monetize and selling ads against traffic. It's a with my likes to platform so I became top five. Advertising tossed dollars on a whole platform. It was over a hundred million users at the time and from net. I realized that Damn I'm making pretty much shit thousands of thousands of dollars every single day and I was like well. How can I do this for other people? I was doing it for myself. A parody account Johnson created the grumpy cat and made that go viral. Oh yeah made grumpy cat. And so now as the rest in Peace Jason Recipes wanted a the number one is the most famous animal on the planet right. Yeah one hundred million dollar network so for from net I actually transition transition from that satellite. All right it took me several years to gain six million followers not make thousands of day off of it. How can I not only scale at up even even more but even on top of that? How can I help other individuals so I was like well? Shit you got guys who are five million follow six five eight million follows already on the with the Heli doing doing so. I started going east celebrities and I was like well. Listen you have all these followers. I know how to monetize. Let me help you. You've been putting all this work follies years you had hit since in two thousand and four flat your bank account flatlined like how can I help you do what I know how to do. Let me go ahead and take it to the next level and once I realized is dead. Asta having these guys make twenty thousand dollars a month. Sixty thousand dollars in mind gardening mighty duck. He was twenty one years old at the time. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah mighty ducks use a crack. Four hundred thousand dollars with me in a year like so all these guys g holiday twenty thousand dollars a month like you know guys who haven't had gotta hit a while not to have residual based on the efforts that they put in a decade ago and then it got deeper. I was all right cool. I'll make somebody a bunch of money in there but like all right cool you know. I grew your followers right now. Only I started with mighty ducks. When he had like a million followers? I grew as pace to like seven million can within like a few years the first year we were five million so I started growing Ali celebrity accounts and we got up to like seventy nine million. All air counts. We did seven billion video views. Three hundred billion impressions and then. Yeah just you know be really ungrateful. You are making two hundred thousand quarter million dollars some guys. I was just talking talking to you know. Just say ECON. I was talking to eight com brother and we was talking. I had one hundred and fifty thousand dollars upfront. You know because a lot of times people. Oh you SPEC from pretty ricky layer like nobody taking me serious like so. I had to come with the bag in my hand. Yeah I got one hundred fifty thousand. He can go at me. He went. He went with the white man with the button up you. You know what the towel. And he didn't go with me and then he got robbed. Owed the company went out of business took his money and then I was just like you know what Spec Speck was over here the whole time. I ain't even come in handy. I had one hundred thousand foot is guy one person I try and get one hundred seventy five thousand upfront. He told me my money went and good in. Yeah Yeah. He told me he wasn't enough. Good over here. It's a lot of numbers. I was like all right so we got how much time I got. Yes so he told me that the money wasn't even enough money like he was filling itself and not literally are seen him at a revolt. Some east coast but we sit down. We got oh now the diddy diddy ill is. It was on that calendar but not. He went to sit raspy doc so long story short. I realized that I can help more individuals I was like. Why am I helping? People already don't need to help like they need help but they don't need the help. I can help individuals who have a brand who have a product. That's amazing they don't know how to get to the masses. They don't know how how to brand themselves. They don't know how to do marketing. They don't know how to build a sales team. They don't know how to close a deal for one hundred thousand dollars on one call close. They don't know none of this stuff stuff and I understand this so as my company was accelerate in and we may one of the fastest growing companies in America with a list called the in five thousand we ranked number Emma to sixty two with sixteen hundred percent growth in the last three years and I was like what the hell is that so it was like eighteen million mt million registered companies companies. They put together two top five thousand growing companies in Iran to sixty two hundred less. So once I did that all right I literally went crazy like my. My company just went crazy and then facebook change one thing boom almost took me out of business or it they they. They did an algorithm chains. They realize how much money we was. We was making sell As against the traffic and they want a piece of it. Because I'm making all this money off us and we not getting a piece of it so they try to figure out a way to not try to figure out they figured out a way to cut our water off. But I seen like in business you've got to be a visionary you gotTa understand was coming five years two years three years ahead and I knew this was happening so I I started transitioning myself in pivot in my company because I knew that this day doomsday was come in so some are competitors making forty five million a year went out of business a lot of them just like when flatlined. But I've seen it coming so in a change. May My revenue dropped by eighty percent overnight. But I was. I was preparing if you if you stay ready and you gotta get get ready so when it happened. I made the transition but I started renova hundreds of books I started doing. I started listening to podcasts. I started you know high anchor. Associates Mentor ship. I started doing everything I could possibly buying. Pro like online courses everything possible to try to make that transition because even repair I needed to try to like sustain that hit because I have at that time I think I over twenty five employees and I just too many people depending on me but I didn't have anything like this like my program entrepreneur. MBA program and by the way. If you guys go to my free training you can go to. He'll go viral DOT COM. And then you had to take you straight does free And I didn't have anything like that. It breaks lakes all this stuff down. I had to go find a coach for sales. Learn how to do sales hat to go take a training for personality seven through personality because saying well I was telling you is different than than I was sell to. Her is different personality types. In the way that you present your sales pitch to them and then marketing branding like people. I don't know how to grow one hundred thousand followers in thirty days. I can blow up a plant. Blew up a cat grumpy grumpy. The you know what I'm saying I can do whatever so I know. It's a formula that I can use that. I can teach others do the same for themselves. So same way Lila. Must everything he touched turned in and go pay pal. He Tesla a space s whatever. He has a formula in the same way and businesses a formula. So now I basically put this curriculum together. That is going to teach you all the necessary things you need to scale your business so if I would have had this when I went like eighty percent cent drop I would. I would have had no press to do like. I'm a coat. SPEC coaching me. I got his team coaching me. Like I'm good but I have that so I was like how can I I position myself in a way where I can help people who's going to go through what I'm going through or somebody who can prepare yourself so if they ever go through that day at least have the tools necessary to to sustain that hit crazy. 'cause I feel like so many people they might hear about pretty ricky and spectacular. And it'll be like oh you know like you said they ain't had a hit since whatever ever like he probably doing. It's Hor because they need money from whatever whatever and they would have no idea that you run in these like million dollar businesses. You know what I'm saying and and so it's like what made you even like. Why didn't want to do the tour? You know what I'm saying. I feel like you so busy. Whatever else you know what the tour is is is a situation for me whereas like do I do it cause it ain't the money like the money like I mean the money making a tour like I can make in a month you know for one of my businesses? I have fourteen but at the same time for me. It's about my brothers. I know this is a love for them. I noticed something that that they cherish in in even for me like perform stages really powerful for me but at the watt third foot show becomes a job. You know it goes from fun to like I gotTa continuously team asleep. Go into the same show you know I gotta entertain. I got this Lima Alter Ego onstage. People see me perform on stage and as you say the same SPEC I just heard on a podcast. I gotTA get Freaky Nasty. tweet legs stroke in on that flipping a living. Yeah all we can't even save concert. I went to really. Oh yes on allstate. We couldn't afford to be down House I own. I'm not supposed to be singing in this. I had with my friend. One of my friends Monica. She had taken me. We we went.

"The. Today on happy. Second fused legendary podcasts are actor writer director comedian Ricky surveys. Hey, guys, I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another edition of happy said confused. Welcome to a I've said this before I always say, this is a special podcast. This is this is a meaningful. One for me. People. Ask me who's on my list of people haven't talked to want to get in here for the podcast. Rickie surveys at top at the top of that list. Absolutely has been for several years. I've been such a huge fan of his work. Of course, going back to the office and extras, those two particular such classic influential pieces of work that influenced all pop culture. But, but certainly my own work certainly has been impacted very much by his embracing of the awkward, his embracing of extras of skewering celebrity his just no holds barred approach to ta- comedy is something I really respect. I think he is just a, you know, he's not a triple. He's quintuple threat or something he can do everything. So well, so I was so so thrilled to have him on the podcast actually had an opportunity to spend. A bit more time than even on the podcast with Ricky this past week. I did a QNA with him. Audience four four an event promoting afterlife is new show on Netflix. And then Ricky was kind enough to come in for a long conversation here, and he was a delight. I should mention his new show, which is getting some really great reviews. Its getting a tremendous response. I really I really enjoyed it. It's called afterlife at his currently available on Netflix. Just six episodes. I just plowed right through them on us. Ed, it's been then it was not a chore. It was it was a delight. It really was. It's a it's an odd show in that. It sounds on its face to be dark and depressing. The premise is is that it's about a guide dealing with loss and grief. He is just lost the love of his life, his his wife, but he kind of takes that. That horrible event and uses it as an opportunity to just sort of say in do anything and just be kind of like the the unfiltered version of himself and there in lies the comedy. But, but it is also truly emotional and moving at times, it's really unique blend and certainly something that in some ways moves Ricky into areas he has an export yet. And in other ways calls back to the emotion in comedy that was even there right from the start in the office, so checkout afterlife on net flicks right now, I highly recommend it. I'm not gonna say too much more because the main event today really is this conversation with someone I admire he is one of the funniest man on the planet. So why why waste time with my prattling on here. He is the one and only Mr. Ricky surveys. Those grenade. Verse two now. Yeah. Just there. That's only snack on rubbish hungry me too. But then I eat like five of them. I never this. I'm still slightly oven. That's what how I rationalize horrible form of cancer the rile grenade. Bars comes I know. Yeah. You never know. Boss degree and how fate. Some people turned down the put it on the Titanic. Could you could be hit by a bus full of grenade bars, all the power, exactly? As you can see this is a super cash, sir. Thank you so much for coming by my pleasure. We started off. It's how it is hard to these weird podcast times that you've you've really created these. It's your faults chests for job. Yes. We're. This is just his office. And he stuck up to my which is so you need. I'm I'm not being funny about it. But it's odd. It is a little odd. Very close. Leaving. So. Well, we used to do the little studio through this wall. That's a more conventional studio, and yes, the.
