Where Does Derek Brunson Go From Here?

"Let's talk about dark brunson because he looked great. He dominates he submits darren till in the third round. He's now won five in a row. He's tear it up. And in the contextual sense. He has absolutely done enough to earn a title. Shot in fact. I will strongly argue. He is more deserving title. Shot than marvin vittori was when he got the title shot. Robert whitaker is next. Brunson could easily wait for a title shot. He could be a backup. He could be replacement fighter for that fight or he could go ahead and just take another fight. So where does derek brunson go from. Another dominant win. I'll be shocked if he's not at least slotted in as a reserve for the Sonya you would occur rematch when whenever that happens and it's not. It hasn't been book yet. We're all thinking early. Twenty twenty two. I'm sure brunson will be ready by then. I'm sure he's staying in shape. He's aware of the possibility. I know we said on another show recently. That fighters shouldn't take reserve opportunities. But i mean. I think they should if they're only if they're guaranteed show money and win money. It brunson gets that guarantee. I know that's not gonna happen. That's not how the ucf works. I think they might get their show money usually because they show up and they weigh in. So that's the minimum. You should also get your win money. I want that to be a policy in the usa going forward. And that's the case. Brunson one hundred percent. Be ready for that spot. He's he's definitely earned that for me. If he can wait. I wanna see him weight. This ideal situation that sonya and whitaker shah you're february the late and then And then we you know maybe brunson can get in there. I guess it would be may probably may or april which seems like a long time but if you can wait that long. That's how i would do it. I he deserves tell shot he should notify anyone else. Yeah i mean. I think he's absolutely unequivocally in the driver's seat for the next in line. Spot behind whittaker it's oughta sonya whitaker brunson then cannon air in my eyes and if i'm derek brunson like you said there's nothing more you need to do your next fight should be for the belt and you hope that robert whitaker doesn't beat israel ottesen it because then there's going to be a trilogy fight yada yada. Yada canadair needs brunson to solidify title. Shot brunson does not need cannon air to solidify his in my eyes for the sake of check the tapes and all that the ufc will probably make the fight between brunson and cannon air possibly put it on the same card is out of sonya whitaker. So that's why pick.

"And with the trends in the sport and showing respect to the fact that guys have gotten better, and they just. Can't do this as long. Look, you will go back and talk about tournaments, even the ones that you're still seeing that take place in Arizona on a very rare, Cape when we are treated to a tournament, I can't think of a guy that had to be out there twenty five minutes. I just can't think of it off the top of my head. Even back in the olden day, when hoist was winning those tournaments collectively through the course of the evening. He was on out there for twenty five minutes. It's a very very long. It's a very long ask. I think as a whole is pulling it off boxing. It's shot boxing, right in the ass. They wonder why you no one's watching boxing anymore. It's twelve rounds possibly want to watch that. What would I possibly want to watch that? It's called the law of diminishing marginal utility for any of you business majors out there. It's a say that too much of a good thing is not a good thing. The example given will be, here's a chocolate bar. Take a bite. Did you enjoy that? Oh, yeah. Oh, it was delicious was a wonderful chocolate bar. I believe you now I want you to keep doing that. I want you to eat twelve candy bars nonstop in a row. I assure you those last bite. You are not going to enjoy, but you're doing the same thing, the for the first part and the first bite. You really did enjoy. So where's the tipping point? I often time here fans come out and go, oh, no. That was amazing. I want to see more of it. I get that. And that's very selfish. And as a fan, you have every right to do that. But to then watch those two athletes who went out there and did it not be able to perform again for a meaningful period of time, we've discussed this, the last full five rounds that we got at a point in time. I believe this was just passed up by cowboy and Al. I think they went the distance, right? But at one point in time, it was Robert Whitaker, and you'll Romero neither of which has fought sense, well over a year the next closest we got was cut short by one second. So let's throw that second and just say it was five five which was Korean zombie versus your ear. Neither fighter has fought sense. There's a reason why they went out. They gave it their all their perform. They put on wonderful shows, wonderful, meaning things that they should be very proud of. But somebody in a more responsible role has got to be able to look at the data. That's right in front of us and say, you know what it appears that, that is just simply too long, and as great as they did in his fun as that was to watch, there would appear that there is a problem here for whatever reason. If you don't have the courage to come out and say it and identify it for what? Let's just call it for whatever reason, but let's look at the data look at this shelf, life, look at the return of your commodity, which is the athlete, and consider doing this different. I think that, that would be very reasonable. I think being very reasonable. But I already know it's going to happen because I brought this up before it happens every time. People don't seem to love that argument changes heart..

They think he's had this problem, and it's been going in and out. And it's one of those situations had it popped out during the fight. It could have been fatal for him. So this is really serious. Hopefully, we don't know exactly what happened with the doctor, hopefully, they popped it back in and sewed it up. And if that's the case he'll be four weeks. But this was this freak freak injury less than one percent are doctor here at the UFC who's been doing this for thirty years has never seen it ever and his in his career and not in a young person.

Nothing but respect and we wish him nothing, but speeder recovery, and I hope he's okay. We're talking to. You're not gonna hear me, you know, me get me on the program talking trash in promoting and get on people. But certain situation we have to be human. Absolutely. I think everybody out there. Everyone to give respect keep Robertson. They prayer. I wish nothing but the best talking to manager Elliot. Bill Aziz here on area who wanna show on ESPN radio's presented by Uber. Breaking news out of the world to the USC USC to thirty four tonight in Melbourne Australia on pay per view, Robert Wood. It covers coming gasping for the middleweight title cancelled that flight has been canceled because Robert Whitaker is going under the knife. In a matter of moments in Australia for a hernia certainly wish him the best. I'm curious Ali is Kelvin going to get paid. How's this gonna work because you just went through a training camp?

You know, I understand you know, he went to a camp. And and you put a lot of money into it investment. A lot of money into it. And at the end of the day. This is. You know, I'm not worried about him. I know he will be paid. Thanks for doing this Ali very sorry about the news our best to to Kelvin as well. Speak for everyone. Everyone is bummed out about this. We're looking forward to it. I appreciate you coming on for a few minutes. He will take care. He was. And I have no doubt in my mind. Dana white and you'll see them because they're taking care of my guys sounds good. Thank you Ellie. Let's go back to the phone lines. Now talk to more fans. Breaking news again Robert Whitaker out of tonight's made event. Ernie a- surgery scheduled for Madame moments from now in Melbourne devastating news, not only for the UFC. But for Robert Whitaker who continues to get all these freaking bad breaks time. And again, he had shingles. Prior to the last time that they were in Melbourne with him headlining that card was supposed to be against Luke rock hold now. Just hours before the event he has to pull out and is going under the knife Joseph Detroit. How are you? Good. How about you area? I'm doing okay. Good. I just got a few questions for you that I think they should let the winner of tonight. And Calvin fight for the official title Whitaker should be stripped. It's just my opinion. Well, I wanna see how long he's out for this is definitely a bad break. But I typically like to subscribe to the rule that if you don't defend your title or you're not scheduled to fight within a year. Then you should be stripped in this case he last fought in June. So let's see how far he's out. Let's see how long he's out for. I should say let's see how long of a recovery this is needed. And then let's talk about stripping in. But I think right now, it's a little premature to talk about stripping. Because he pulled out last year knee injury. I think it's better for him. You don't have to take some time off. But my second question is not question opinion. True. They're gonna make McGregor verse Copley for the I think it should be Tony Emporia for the interim. Yeah, that's Donald Surani just talking right now from what I'm hearing the interim belt isn't being discussed. I don't think a belt is needed for that kind of fight. I don't think a belt elevates that kind of fight certainly not an interim title. So at this juncture, I think that's just cowboy talking and look he's going to get the fight. It seems like that's the front runner. I don't think you need to push for an interim thing anyone wants it, quite frankly, I think the interim belt would would almost like soil that that fight. I don't think anyone wants to see an interim belt online. I don't think either guys should be fighting for an interim belt when you have guys like Tony dust emporium ally. Doing what they've done as of late. Let's go back to the phone lines and say Hello to Corey in California, Corey how are you? Hey, I'm good. How you doing? I'm doing. Okay. Some some disappointing news, but we still have a car tonight. But yeah, it's it's a bummer. These things happen from time to time in in mixed martial arts and. I mean, this is a big one especially because it's the Australian who's now out of the card. Yeah. Honestly, like you said before man, I don't know how these injuries happened the day of the fight. How much are you actually doing? Such a serious injury. But I don't know it's fight game. And it happens. But. So my original copies I called about it. Now trying to shake up. I was gonna say do you think that Anderson is? His own legacy a little bit by taking these bigger fights with the much younger guys are like the fights with whatever, obviously, they're bigger fights. And he's a big name. And do you think that you have tarnished by throwing them into a fight with Israel, just because if Anderson, but then it turns around and now Anderson is card having a big name for Israel to fight. So do you think that enersen should lay off he's bigger fights? Or do you think he's finer you think his legacy Jenner hurt in the end after all this look if we're talking about tarnishing legacies? The only thing that's maybe tarnished his legacy. So to speak is the fact that he was caught with PD's twice other than that. I mean, I don't think opponents will tarnish anyone's like seeing fact to meet on the elevates your legacy because you're finding the toughest guys even as you're in your swansong so to speak. I like the fact that he's taken this fight. Everyone thought it was a mistake. It's an opponent that he thinks he could beat he's fourteen years older. He feels like maybe he's not as experiences him. Maybe he hasn't fought the kind of competition that he's. So I don't think this is. I mean, imagine he pulls it off great story George Foreman. It's like Randy tour all over again. So I honestly don't think that he's tarnishing his legacy on this one. Let's go to one quick call before we take another break Hamilton, Ohio. What's up man areas? A pleasure speaking with you. I want to go back to the UC days, or so I started hearing your voice. Boy that was handled by the UFC. I am so proud that you've come to where you had with the hard work. You've done to put yourself in today's position. Thank you know, as far as what's happening transplanted melborn sad. And that's the core. So the nature of the game. My question to you is at forty three year old is now put himself in position we he's probably going to be having to save this card. I understand that. There's not a lot of four weeks on your old man at his weight. They can do anything except maybe defend themselves. Does he really have a chance to see wing? And do you see this only in the heavyweight World War forty yours can compete one or two times? This gentleman is not tarnishing his world. It just a building him being allowed to do this because of his name and his past of fighting really realistically can this man really compete at this level with this young kid. I mean that remains to be seen. I don't think it's a bad matchup firm. In fact, I'd say he's too big of an underdog. I'm curious to see if he can turn back the clock tonight. But yeah, it's a great call to great point. The best news is this flight hasn't been canceled. So we're about to find out in a matter of moments in a matter of hours, whether or not Anderson Silva can hang with Israel to Sonya after the break. We're going to be joined by my colleague, my partner shell son. And he's in Melbourne. I want to get his take on things. He knows coming gasoline almost better than anyone. He was the one who drafted him on the ultimate fighter way. Back when devastating news Robert Whittaker's out of tonight's UFC two thirty four main event. And I just got details about how it all went down. I'll tell you about all that and more right after the break. You're listening to Hawaii's may show right here on ESPN radio and ESPN app this

But your last year they almost lost the main of that when your Romero miss Wade part of the rock hold fight. They ended up figuring it out. He knocked out rock hold. So they salvage that one even though the interim title didn't end up being online. But in this case this disastrous. This is the worst. I mean, this is two hours before the doors are going to open, maybe even a little less at this point. And there was all kinds of talk all week long about. Kevin gas limbs health. Did he f- staff? Did he have ringworm was he okay? And I find out about this. After just talking to his management like twelve hours ago about how good Robert Whitaker. Look how good he felt. I'll get training camp has been how focused he is. And now the fight is canceled. So no matter moments, we're going to be joined by Burt Okamoto, who's in Melbourne Australia to talk about this, all let's go to some phone calls here and speak to the fans because I think we need each other now has dodged some bullets in the past. They've had a pretty good run. The John Jones situation they were able to salvage it in this case. They've just lost the main event I told you like ten minutes ago, there's a two car now. It's a one fight card. No-one texas. What's on your mind? Now finding out that news shocker. Good. I think they'll end up hole, and they built from Whitaker if he's out too much longer. I don't think. So I mean if he's out for much longer than. Yeah. In this particular case, I think, you know, pulling it from him just as a result of this would be a little harsh. But now, it seems according to bread who just spoke to Dana white that he is undergoing surgery today. What a turn of events for Robert Whitaker here. Thank you for the call Noah, the guy, just wait in phenomenal shape. He's about the headline. And he was going to headline. Remember last year? I was on my show on Monday on Monday of this past week. And I asked him about all the bad luck that he has had to overcome. He was supposed to headline the event in February of last year in the same arena. In Melbourne in front of his hometown crowd. And then he got the shingles. And he had to pull out. You got the shingles? And then you have to pull out now he gets a hernia like fifteen hours before the car and has to go and have surgery today when he's supposed to be headlining. This is as disastrous as it gets my heart breaks for Robert Whittaker as I told you I consider him the most underrated champion in the UFC as tough as they come. But the man just can't catch a break. Horrible Mark in New York. What's on your mind? Really enjoyed the extra sneakers. Oh, thank you. I appreciate that. Does the best part of my day. So far. Yes. It was mine too. Montreal Expos come back. It's going to happen. But anyways, I wanted to ask you a couple of quick questions. One winter. Of the female. If she wins or even if. Rosa page. And also is the best kickboxer WWF. See I appreciate the call. I don't think that the winner of that fight is going to get page hearing that pages in the works for another opponent. Last. I bender best kick box in the NFC certainly up there. He's fought on the highest stages possible. The biggest stages possible as far as kickboxing's attorney glory didn't have the best ending his kickboxing career before he decided to focus fully on mixed martial arts, but there's also been gone sake who made the transition over and others as well. So I don't know about considering the best, but certainly up there. I think that's a fair. That's a fair assessment to say that he's one of the best Josh in queens. How are you? That some some crazy news. We just got there concerning Robert bigger to the card. Oh, it's horrible. I'm so depressed right now. I was really looking forward to that fight. Yeah. I think as you said on your show this week the best the best car part about the car today was that we have a little middleweight tournament going on. So now that one's kinda out the window after this. Is there another division out there that you think would we could set up? You know, if you're a matchmaker set up a really good foremen tournament main and combing lightweight would be perfect for that. Welterweight as well. Lightweight is the first one that comes to mind bantamweight, certainly needs it. I wish they would just stick with the bantamweight contenders fighting for the bantamweight belt, and and stop with this this nonsense of having to go up. Just let him stay there. So those are two or three that come to mind every division could use a tournament every division. All right. We gotta take a break coming up in just a few minutes. We're going to be joined by Sunan who is in Melbourne. We'll get his take on Robert Whitaker getting out of the the main event on on just a couple of hours notice. This is a horrible turn of events. We're gonna talk to him where they talked to Okamoto. We'll talk to all of you. Don't go anywhere one eight eight as peon we'll be back after this.

"Why bother franchise tagging Nick foles as opposed to just letting them walk free agency and potentially recouping a draft pick next year via compensatory selections. The answer. Is this your franchise tag? Nick foles all of a sudden you dictate where he ends up now. Yes, there are some financial juggling between now and eventual trade, but do look for the eagles franchise, tag, Nick foles, and then not quite Anthony Davis level, but you can at least start seeking trade partners and see who else might need a quarterback because we on the NFL one of the annual traditions is somewhere between eight and twelve teams every single year are on the search for a new quarter. I know there's an argument that he won't be the same player outside. Philadelphia, but he has the Super Bowl MVP, Dan, as you survey the landscape and look at the teams that are out there where are some potential landing spot. I know everyone likes to go to Jacksonville because down there corner. I look at Miami Dolphins in a couple of reasons so they just hired Brian floor as their new head coach. He comes from New England. What did Nick foles do under two years ago to New England in the Super Bowl on forty plus on them? And then they're gonna hire chat O'Shea is their offensive coordinator also from New England. So this is an offensive coordinator. That's very adept and understanding player skill sets. What do we know in New England multiple systems this guy? Does this very well this guy does this really good? What is Nick feels do distribute the ball get it out of his hand? So chat O'Shea that marriage of offensive coordinator to quarterback is. So such a big deal. I love that. And then Nick foles statistically is the number one quarterback when when he gets the ball out of his hands. He gets the bottoms hands quicker than anybody in the NFL. Dolphins have a very subpar offensive line. How do you help a bad offensive line? Get a quarterback who gets the bottom. Wind up with the franchise tag. Sportscenter allnight, ESPN radio.

"You could you can still create an interim title and reconfigure some things you'd hate to dismantle at a Sonya Silva. But I think that's what you would have to do because there's no way off on your Silva can carry a card. So to answer your initial question. I think there is marginal more interest from the Australian market only because of local fighters, but I don't think Australia's quite. Brazil we saw that afforded as this week where anyone who was introduced as Brazilian fighter. Immediate pop. Not just an immediate pop because always from Brazil because they know the fighter here. I think the Australian market is a little closer to the US market in that their name driven. But just like if you have a New York-based fighter in New York. Greg lefay there's going to be a pop for him and some intrigue from some some of the more knowledgeable fans in attendance. And also if you're selling your fight card based upon a main event and Coleman event, and then everything else fills him below it in a lot of it has to do with how those fighters perform, and we all know, we've all been around the sport along enough to know that sometimes it's that it's that second five in the prelims that one that they didn't even want to show you're going to tune in for. Yeah. You're like, oh, wait, a little eight o'clock nine o'clock in tune in for the big fights tune in early and this and some guys go in there, and they just kill it. And a lot of times those are the guys that we aren't expecting to do. So. And I think that's. Kind of the way certainly the diehards of the fans of the sport approach. And I think that we've learned over the years to to expect something exciting to happen from unexpected sources. So I understand what you're trying to say their fill and and for the most part agree with it. But I will counter with this. Here's my theory. Robert Whittaker's the second coming of GOP in more ways than one and first and foremost GS p in his heyday would always win you put him in Canada. Montreal Toronto he sells that place out in seconds. You put them in the states. He eventually became a draw. You put him in Vegas people traveled to see him. But early on he wasn't quite the name that he was in Canada. Robert Whitaker is a massive draw in Australia. He sold out not only this card in minutes. But he sold out the card last February the paper UCAR that eventually had to pull out of due to those injuries..

"I mean, I I kind of think there's a strong interest. Maybe I'm just speaking for myself. But I'm most excited to see they call man. I really wanna see the legend. You know Anderson Silva, I want to see what he has left it. I wanna see the rising maybe legend the making certainly he thinks he's going to be as a sign. Yeah. I think that those kinds of crossroads fights are always really interesting. We've seen some other ones we all just last weekend, although fighting and and not too long what week before we had Surani fighting with these these fights where the one guys on the way up one guy, maybe on the way down or at least some people are thinking might happen. Those are the kind of fights that interest me I find the card to be incredibly thin almost disappointingly thin. I mean, it really is a to fight card. My opinion. And I agree with your point fill that. There are some intriguing fighters on the card. Good local talent, that's always fun. When you have the local town fighting on the big stage, so to speak, but to me, it's to fight card. And I think when people hear that though, say all your crapping all over the card. I love these to fight so much that I almost don't really mind that we're focusing all of our tension at least here stateside on these two fights Robert Whitaker versus Kevin gasline for the midway title. And as you said Jeff is route assign ever since engine Silva, and I also love the fact I love when they do this. It feels like a little mini tournament. Right. It feels like the winner of the coma. Vent is going to fight the winner of the main event. And so there's their symmetry there between the two fights Phil I know that you were closely with the Australian market the level of interest in the entire card outside of the two main fights is it all is it the same as here or you feel like for them. This is a bigger deal. I think it's a marginally bigger deal only because if if I'm if I'm an Australian MMA fan Jim going. Resonate. Yeah. People beyond that. And also, you know, I think it's not just the mini tournament. But I think it's something that doing that smarter. When they have a a thin card as you're saying where its main combing, and then a pretty steep drop off their after there's almost an insurance Bilton, right? Because if this Komen event was an equally interesting fight at one thirty five or light heavyweight, for example, if something happens to either fighter in the main event, we could fight someone trips over a cable at a local TV station, you're screwed and here say something happens with Kelvin gasoline or even Robert Whitaker..

"We've done it with certain characters that are in the AFC. But with style bender you look at the way that he's dismantled guys. You look at his background. You look that. He's not. He doesn't have seven fights seven were jacking him off. He's a guy with a a well-documented background. He can do it. Kind of all he has a ton of fights under his belt. A knowledge is mixed. Martial arts us ton of combat sports fights. So I just think he he's our diamond and get used to them. And he's giving me the face of of mixed martial arts moving forward by. He's that type of guy is the personality. Here's their look is the style. He's a knockout artist he has great takedown defense. So I think it's inter- Silva you're going to watch style bender and people like holy shit. He's that good and. I think mcevers good bring out the best in him. I think he's that competitor. And I think he ends up getting a walk off home run KO in the second round, guess Anderson Silva, and which would set up if the cards play ripe for the fam- down under a Whitaker if you were to get past Calvin gasoline.

He's under appreciated. You know, you look at what he did in the two. You'll Romero fights beat them basically with one leg and one arm in both fights. There's always a problem. The biggest thing for me here. With Robert Whitaker is pay attention to how he starts a fight. And how the the fight plays out. Because for whatever reason he is injury prone when I say injury prone means he hits guy so hard his hands break his foot breaks, his knee gets fucked up there, there seems to be a common thing where he's getting hurt in these fights. And he's still pulling it out still able to pull it out. Well, if there's one thing that gas does better than you'll Romero jock race ouza..

A lot of things that I talk about on outside of journey dot com. Trying to figure out where I'm going with all the things, I know and. How to use it? Best to help those. I care for the most always a baffling situation for Kenny. I mean, it's pretty well honed down to just a few things now, but I got stumped for awhile bummed out. I love helping people with this like on this podcast. I really enjoy knowing that verb for certain people the things I share come in awful handy. That's putting it mildly. So for those of you that have been wondering that fall into that last category. Sorry for the silence shit happens. And I had a sort some stuff. I popped out the other side at a rabbit hole doing much better. That makes you sound like all messed up. I wasn't. I was just confused. I needed time to think I came out with clarity on how to continue with this show. My other show as I get ready to build also the third show one of doing my website, and how getting paid for all of this stuff while still being benefit to being of benefit to any of you. That are gracious enough to spend your time with me. I got that all sorted. I'm feeling pretty good feeling really good. So before I tackle too, many like specific show by show episode type material I've been sitting on this idea for a while. And it was it was this interview the doctor Mer cola did would Robert Whitaker back in two thousand ten at least. That's when it got put on YouTube. They put it in seven pieces. They're only like six to nine ish minutes apiece. The interview is only a little over an hour long. Why I think I think they must have broken it into that many pieces because Robert Whitaker doesn't waste almost any of his words if you say in something that's important. I got to pages of bullet items here to talk about with you. And I'm not going to talk about each one. It would be I don't know how I'd even do that. And make it sound interesting. It'd be a little bit like sitting in class and who wants that? I'm going to try to just cherry pick some of the the more dramatic facts. I guess I don't know. Let's see what I do. So I'll aimless I at why this even matter to me. And then I'll show while you'll see why why it will matter to you. How about that? Years ago back in. Shit. I dunno must've been must have been around two thousand six. Somewhere narrows when my. The development of my system it takes guts to live. Well, what was happening? I did. Not know I was developing anything I was merely trying to survive and improve. I was doing all of this without a safety net. Psychiatry had already proven to be not only a failure. For me to help me. It it made everything about bi-polar and my whole life worse. And what I mean? My psychiatry is the drugs psychiatrists and psychologists were given me. Everything just kept getting worse. Everything to include my physical health, and then the medical doctor started ladle out drugs for all the metal physical problems were happening to me. I had a moment of clarity once when I laid out all my pills on account or top. And I was like, you know, what if I had gravy? I'd had fucking dinner. I got enough material here to fill my stomach. This is insane. There's no way that this pile of pills of all these various types, equal good health. It just doesn't make sense. And somewhere narrow when I found this interview, I'm chopping out a lot, but I'm trying to focus on Justice interview. Because well. Back when I was building my system and doing everything to get well a so much happened. And I wasn't well right away. So I am hard time. Remembering what happened win? Remember? I remember things that they happened. And I can remember how things happen what it looked like. And what got said, but I can't remember chronological order events. And particularly from that time. So however, this works I found Dr Makola, and he's a medical doctor who in Chicago who eventually grew disillusioned with what western medicine was and was not doing for people in to people who are sick from anything and he got into holistic, healthcare and alternative health care from the standpoint of a medical doctor, and he was wholeheartedly a medical doctor before kind of like me seeing all my pills laid out and thinking if I just had gravy. I'd have an entire meal the evidence the feedback. He was getting from the world for you know, trying to help people in western medicine. Head too many wasn't working. It was too much to deny that it wasn't working on a grand scale. He eventually became Makola dot com. When all stuffy does. He's been doing it for decades. So I drift across him just in my search for trying to find answers to beat bipolar disorder. And in researching his site, I find this interview with Robert Whitaker. Now, Robert Whitaker is a medical journalist. He was a nominee for a Pulitzer. He was a medical reporter for the Albany times union. He was the director of publications for Harvard Medical School, and he wrote a series about psychiatry for the Boston Globe. That was a finalist for the for the Pulitzer prize. And he's written many books. Some recently, I only scanned quickly on Amazon about mental health in America. And the disaster that it is. And why he's got a lot to say about this. He kinda reminds me a will bring over at Brinks dot com will brink as fitness lifting diet, and he even ties into how I got my head. Well, but. Digress. These two men. They're not about flash. They're not about drama. They're they're scientists per se at least that's the reproach. I don't know what will is behind the scenes, what has education and Robert appears to be just a super smart, dude. But they don't they don't say anything if they can't also hold up a scientific study in your face to back. Why they said what they said and believe what they believe they have proof. They don't just say anything, and I liked that a lot. So I got into this this interview and.
