It's time to decrease your stress increase your ability and regain your passion. Now. Introducing your host, Dr Mark Costas. Hello everyone. Welcome to another episode of the dental podcast. I'm your host, Dr Mark Costas. I'm sitting here with two great friends, Dr Tim McNamara, Dr Brian similar we're here. Live at the VOD summit day to dusted off the cobwebs from latest night last night. But how you fellas doing? I'm hurting a little bit. Are you this is one of my favorite events? I don't know if I'm we party in here. Or are we learning? It's it's a combination of it is it is. It is funny. Oh, actually, I'm on the sitting across from me. Actually out of this also on the podcast sporting, the brand new headphone, Mike combo, very very nice. I'll do a selfie, and then this'll be the picture that we use for this is I love it. I love it. What number is Ashley because she's in hot one you're coming in hot straight. It is hot this morning because of Levada sweats. I'm actually sitting on a heater. Well, it is nineteen degrees outside and chickens are getting out right now. Your eggs are coming out hard. All right. These or making no sense. Not at conference. All right. So this is great. I walked into the podcasting tent, and my good buddies were already they looked like they were getting their voices ready. They had the Mike's on. They're ready to go. I don't know if you're leaving me a special surprise on the recorder or. Well, I will release it. Yeah. So great stuff. You guys are two very important people in dentistry. I would like to say we have Tim McNair who's the founder of the dental success network. My partner proudly proudly partnered with Dr Tim McNamara, and then Brian similar here is in charge of the dental student success network, which is really really exciting. It's a branch of DS in just like we have dental team success network, but dental student success network is something that Tim, and I are really really excited about because our goal is to get dental students around the world engaged with what we're doing here at ESPN. And I think that. If there is a platform to get them advanced education in clinical matters and in practice management matters while they're going to dental school in an organized fashion, basically free. I think it's it's just better for the profession. I mean, I don't you think Tim, it's something that can literally change the profession you you say it makes me wanna run through a wall for this movement. What's happening in dental school? And it's not new it's been going on for a while. But we're getting low quality information, you know, or or none. In terms of business clinical that that can be debated and not by me because I I don't understand clinical dentistry from the business side, I feel well versed, and when I was in dental school I noticed that. There was a lot of misconception and manipulation of the people that are coming in and hosting these lunches, sometimes are not telling you behind the scenes where they're steering you. I think that if we can organize dental students, and we can get in their daily and interact with them and connect them and raise the level of of awareness of opportunity, and how kind of break down the barrier of how easy it can be to be a business owner, we can tip this whole thing on its access. And I'm telling you, it started we launched it. It's been a big success. So far, we started with an ambassador program, Brian I'll speak to that. He's the man behind the curtain with the plan. Yep. But we launched that ambassador program. It's been a big success in our about the press on it. So if you are a dental student, and you wanna be part of this kind of the last phase of the pilot program you go to dental student success network. Dot com. Your Email, and we're about to change the way we exit dental schools incredible. And I'm gonna get Brian here in a second. But what I love so much about this is that I have my finger on the pulse. I think of dental students because I am I am privileged enough to get invited to speak at lots of dental students all over the country. And you know, I give a forty five minute to ninety minute presentation than we have QNA, and they are just thirsting for this information. There's nothing formal out there nothing organized. They have to pick up little bits and pieces of information from podcast from YouTube video from a book that they happen to read from their dad's office manager, you know, it's just there's no like reliable source for information. And I get done with my presentation, and they're just like you just barely scratched the surface. I need more information. How do I get more information? And I've never really had anything other than handing a copy of my book to say, here's where you go. It's ongoing. Support. It's x number of CEO hours. It's access to advance clinical stuff. It's it's it's access to all the practice management stuff that you're gonna need to know before you buy your first practice. It is it's like a dream. It's going to be awesome. So Dr stimuli. What say you about DSM? Yeah. I mean, well, I Tim gave the contact information will also be giving away the cell phone numbers of Dr Mark Costas. Need to get in touch with Dr drew. Doesn't answer is just onstage. He goes. He goes, here's here's here's my social. Here's my Instagram handle. Here's my Facebook group. Here's my Email. And here's my mom cell phone. Okay. I think there's one of the things that makes us opportunity unique is that. Even listening to a lot of the podcast out there. I mean, it's people it's designed for people who have been in practice for ten years twelve years more high level in it's it's sometimes unsafe for dental students to be pulling that that information because they haven't gone through anything yet. They don't have the baseline and the opportunity here is really cool because you can pull it all the way back to step one, and you can start from step one. So that when they're done with dental school. They have an actual knowledge of how all of this stuff works. You know, I don't think we can fight how dental schools operate dental schools are dental school is but. It can be. So I open just to see that. There's other things out there. We all go through dental school, and they're like, well, we do PFM crowns with a button margin. And you're like, well there are other things right? Like aren't there? Other things out there is there really such thing as a margin. It's it's three TS actually be UT margin. Yeah. Yeah. One of the frustrating. Things is. But once again, I forgot Ashley was here. Hey, what are you doing story in my life? But but just open some is that there are different ways of doing things. There's there's more possibility than you may have thought was there. I mean, it's gonna be so freaking empowering, it's can't wait. I can't wait to see like give give give us a, you know, a an overview like, what are they gonna see inside? What like what is what why is this different? Why is this what they need? Go. Perfect. Can I take this awesome? So if you haven't been living under a rock, you know, that Mark myself and a few others launched the dental success network, which is a community. Connection of dentists that are in the top three percent would say, but in addition to that community we organize these these dentists, and then we we press on some buying power that we now have. And then we also offer C E that comes along with this. I think we're at about one hundred and fifty hours of high quality C E. And what's what's really interesting about DSM? That is for you must be a doctor nor to get into we go through an application process. And we actually go through hand verifying that you are, you know? Yeah. I don't know if that we hand verifying, I don't know actually verify, but I'm gonna go take their hands, and they type in your license number, and they confirmed that you are identical. There is multiple hands in the process. I knew know that hands and also we do. We we do require that you have hands. Absolutely, absolutely. Oh, we screwed us actually. Yeah. You just open. Natural. They could be prosthetic. They just have to have. Okay. Go ahead. Not involved with us. We. Actually, there's some shiny over there. Jason. We created the the safe place for dentists where we don't take kickbacks. We able to give unbiased opinion. And then like, we said, we we not only verify that you are a dentist hygienic aren't in there. We also have through marks incredible network been able to reach out to people we trust as influencers and brought them in that's decent. But we needed to create that whole thing. So that we can start trying to tip this industry and the way we tip the industry is create something tangible like DSM, and then go back to the dental students and say this is who you can follow and listen to trust. And so that is so what is it? If you go through the process, you're going to sign up dental student success network. You're gonna get your Email and your name Brian will hand verify. You Hans Hans verify. He will he'll ensure that you are dental student. You will then go through the boarding process. Once you're in the very first place, you're going to get to is the network and the network for us is an internal community. We use Facebook workplace and inside there we have every single room led by influencers all across the industry, so anything from high high high level and deep deep what am I trying to say deep business and a topics and very thorough. You know, how do you start up? How how do you go from maybe graduating into an association should you associate ship. Should you go and own? Should you be multi partner multi practice solo where the deep conversations on what the next step for you is? But then we also have clinical rooms all across the board. And now this is where Brian is an expert. But from you know. You know, what's happening in their. He's walking students through in a very basic way. Like, you could spend, you know, four days trying to learn veneers. And he's able to explain it in fifteen minutes, and that is valuable right? And so what we're doing is educating at the very at the very lowest level of this of this. But in addition to this like just yesterday, we reached out to a company now is going to sponsor of the demographic studies that will be done for these students and a massive discount. I didn't even know that just happened last night. So incredible. So there's a pilot program that they are launching specifically for dental student. So now, you don't have to wonder like should I go to Cleveland, but we're going to be able to show you. Yes, you should go to Cleveland, and what's amazing about this like consider what we're doing here. You wanna go to Cleveland? We just showed you Cleveland is a good spot. We turn around to our network of eight hundred doctors, and we say, hey, who is looking for an associate partner in Cleveland three people raise their hand, we connect them. Now, we've connect you at worst to an amazing mentor and at best your future partner, this should give people shivers. We're going to change in a line the way this whole thing goes, there's also if you even take a step back further than that as well. Just in the kind of the the platform of this is it's for first years. Second years third. Two years and four years, and there's rooms in there that are preclinical rooms there are didactic rooms in there. If your first year, and you're sitting there at midnight cramming for an exam, and you're like, oh my God. I I don't know what this is you just type it in you, just go to the room and just type it. Hey, guys. What is this in you'll have hundreds or thousands of other people helping you with study guides in answering your questions and preclinical tips as they're getting into clinical? I mean, it starts from the very beginning. Yeah. I mean, you can just type in like be UT margin. And you just get a picture of temp to answer. So, but that's a lab array Shen power of that collaboration to have all of the dental students in they're able to help each other. And having it be a safe place where they can ask questions, and there's no, yeah. There's just no judgment says I need to know these things, and you have so many helping each other. It's going to be it's going to be amazing. It's electric. I'm you think about this. If we start connecting Atlanta to Seattle to Minneapolis to Texas. And in time you start developing deep relationships like let's say you get on board with this as a first year. And by the time you graduate. You have three hundred close friends three thousand close friends. It doesn't matter the point being when you graduate. You will immediately ascend into a safety place because your circle already created nobody in dental school graduates with a mentor circle already. It's incredible. I mean, if I had access to all the other d ones across the country when. I was a d one. And I had just a question about histology. Can you imagine that instead of the four people that happen to know histology in my class of seventy five it's just opened up a huge world of. Oh, hey, guys any tips on studying for national boards, part one well shit. Yeah. There's sixty five other dental schools that are going to say, here's how we do it. Here's how we do it. That's that's where the power is too. I mean think about you go through school, you get taught one way and that's dangerous. Right. You come out. And then all of a sudden now you start getting colleagues and you start talking to people. I do it this way or I do it that way. Oh my goodness. That's amazing. You just save me. Fifteen minutes on the ground. If you can get that in dental school. Learn all of this stuff and all of the different ways of doing educating yourself the clinical stuff the business stuff, and you see it every different way of doing. It. You come out. You're like ten year practicing dentist when you graduate. It's crazy. And you know, there's been years of Mark. And I and Ashleigh and Bryan and Dave lowly day bender. Michael Lamontagne, absent clean. I mean, really good at goes off. Boom. He remembered me. About how much time much time. Have we put into a whiteboard to do this? So let's paint the vision of what is about to happen. I mean when we connect the dental students to not only high quality powerful information, not only are they going to upgrade the way in which they graduate, very kind of touch on that not only are they now going to have access to potentially their future partner that is eliminated. All fear. They also are going to have access to things like this pilot program for demographics also going to have. Access to dental success university. You're also going to have access to the summit things like voices dentistry. The connection that all are going to be graduating with his out of this world at associated thing. It's huge too. We were just at Rocky Mountain dental convention with Addison glean in my Wilmington last weekend. And we were the students were just like attracted to this. And it was just so excited. And they were asking, you know, what about associate them that was one of the biggest questions are you able to connect as far as the Societa tuned when we said, yes, like they could type in their Email address. It's just it's such a need. And it's so exciting that it's something that will be so valued three three years from now. Let's come back. I mean three years from now we're going to be talking about this. And and if we don't have. Tears because of my fire right now is I'm looking at cross all you, and I can feel all of this energy from you guys three years from now we're gonna come back. We're going to hopefully, not hungover. Hopefully are really bad hangover fit lasted three years. I mean that might be a world record thirty six month. Thirty six months of this industry. Guys. This is we're we're sitting on the precipice of something. So big right now. I'm glad to be taking this journey with our y'all sitting here at the table. Thank you for all of your hard work. Thank you for representing our profession. Thank you for coming up with these ideas that are going to change dentistry forever. It is incredible. What we're sitting on? And what is about to happen? I mean, you think about Facebook Facebook started as a as a communication portal within Harvard. And then it went within the Ivy league schools, you know, started in colleges, and then it went nationwide, and then it went outside of schools. Nobody is connecting dental students, and there's such a huge need. They're such an isolation from school to school. Like, there's there's no formal communication portal between dental students at all. And this is just going to change everything. And it's not an informal communication portal. It's going to be organized, you guys going to have access to all the stuff that we that. We offer to the doctors in ESN it's going to be. Think about think about just this just this one concept. 'cause I don't think any of us graduated dental with any confidence you're going to graduate dental school with confidence that you know, what you're doing clinically and clinically and in the business. How game changing right there totally for me to throw the gauntlet down. How does corporate compete if dentists are United jet off? Yeah. It's really tough because your options become a little bit better. Yeah. Yeah. I'm really excited guys. That's really Jack. Coffee, hoping that if it's possible I wanna get you back on the podcast little bit later this afternoon. I want to have a deep dive about the deliverables of of DSM and how doctors can get involved with that. But for now, Tim, if you wouldn't mind giving the contacted formation and the process for doctors that are listening right now to get involved with DSM success network. Exactly. So we just talked about students. Stay with me right now on URL's here. You've got. You've got success network. Just go there. That's what you sign up. If you're a doctor. Why would you sign up? Well, we've just unleashed one hundred hours of is for members only we we have a buying group in there that will press on when needed and as needed. We have mainly we have a safe. Virtual study group so across clinical amd business, everything you can do daily interacting with with absolute mega stars in this in this industry. Just a stat out there if you are dead just listening to this business owner dentist. Is the average dentist in two thousand seventeen. Did I believe it was six hundred eighty thousand the average DSM dentist at one point seven million? So we're not talking about you you start surrounding yourself with that you upgrade yourself. So how do you do it dental success network? There's an application process, you will be hands verified. So if he if you are dentist, so this is only for Dennis you get inside their check it out. And then the big thing that we're about to connect for this whole thing is now if you're looking for future growth, partners and associates, you have an avenue to the highest quality dental students.

My multiple dental practices is the integration of an in house membership plan in house membership plans helped to attract fee for service cash paying patients, he crease patient attrition rate less than your dependence on traditional dental insurance and can potentially deliver significant passive income to the practice owner.

Episode 45: Cuz Mickey Loves Ya!
Working interferences is intended for mature audiences since the hosts never grew up, someone needs to be the adult. Welcome to working interferences with Josh and Lintz the gentle advice podcasts for the average dentist. Here is Josh links. Pariahs what is up? Welcome to the working interferences podcast, dental advice show. I am. Josh will Austin, and I am last Timmerman Lance down to clown. I am down to clown. I do a livestream like webinars sort of thing tonight. Was it painful. Adults it. Okay. So yes. Is it okay to say? Yes, it was new content and I was doing it with a nother lecturer, so we kind of did half-and-half. So as half the heavy lifting. There's, you know, there's some, there's some apprehension, you know, it's sort of like John Stockton and Carl Malone took a little bit to like get that chemistry. Right? Sure. And I think I think this particular Clinton, I have some some British pretty good chemistry, but it's still just different to be working with somebody. Surely not used to it. So I did a livestream for a couple of Seattle study clubs on generational differences. So basically just talking shit about millennials for like an hour, which is fun. Perfect. But like. I'm a dentist. I not a psychologist. I'm not an anthropology I have. No. Are we kinda in a way incite? Yeah, he did what I know is Google. So let me just tell you what Google told me how about that. Okay. I'll tell you that for forty five minutes. Forty, five. How about that? Perfect. One of the clubs that was on the webinar is in Vancouver Washington, so not far from me. Right. Couple of hours. South. Yeah. Victor, ROY, about two and a half hours. Yeah. Okay. So I'm all I could think about the whole time is how lucky those bastards are in Vancouver Washington, you wanna know why they're lucky Hoover, Washington, I kinda do you like, do you know what I'm saying? You just let me set it up. Mom let you set it up. I I've been there, but I would night those bastards Emmett. Couvert Washington are so freaking lucky. They might live in the best place on earth. Here's, here's why. If you live in Vancouver Washington, you live in Washington? No state income tax. Okay. You're right bike, your Sabir of Portland in Oregon where there's no states or there's no sales tax at all? Correct. So you live where there's no income tax and you drive four miles across the state border where there's no sales tax. Diabolic advantages diabolical. We're sitting here like suckers paying sales tax lands. I was in dental school and I would try to time it so that when I needed to fill up my tank of gas because another thing does is you pay extra because there's always the guy that pump your gas, you can't pump your own gap. That's weird. So I will drive across the river, the Columbia River pump, my gas in Vancouver Washington and then drive back eating up any savings I may have had, but I felt good. Yeah, I think I think New Jersey does that too. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, we're there. You your gas twenty eighteen. I can handle it. I got it. Yeah. Yeah. To top it off Arkansas. Late now I need you to like clean my windshield or just let me do my own shit and only while the gas. Jeez, stupid. Rice. Let me go into the to the convenience store and buy king size Snickers bar and and feel like crap about myself. I can piece please. Thank you. All right. Thank you. We'll antithesis an advice show. If you say, so we answer your questions. We answer questions. We find an all those neat little dental, Facebook groups. We answer questions for Morad it. We strive to help dentists and dental t members with our own unique brand of advice. So please, we need your questions. They are the sustenance we crave now we don't want just any question. Do we Lance? Nope, we don't wanna a bunch of boring questions like what is the best Endo arrogant because we all know that enu era Gatien 10x is the best of all time. It's a little inside joke. There is about forty, get that and the rest of you will not understand what the hell we're talking about. And that's why it's the way we want it. We'll want the tough questions at the questions at Gordon christianson cannot answer and I guarantee you are question. I'll let me put this way normally at three questions, locked and loaded. Uh-huh. Today I have one just this one and a read it in case we get to this one in thirty five minutes instead of forty, five minutes. Okay, it's a doozy land. So you ready. I met, I got me scared. You should be. Everyone should be frightened. This is from a listener named Dr dick. That's when it says Lance, misreading screen. Okay. God, I don't even know Lance. Okay. Here we go. You can do it after some less than -ffective for point. Parade is opening. History of mix, fine. After some less than for play. I tore my friend Ulum no, not my lingual free Neelam or my buckle for Neelam or my labial for Neelam. But the fringe that keeps the foreskin in place in an uncircumcised individual. The first incident was painful, but not horrible. We waited six weeks took it easy, always used plenty of loop, but at tore again, twice on the last tear there was a lot of blood a lot. It felt like a horror movie gone wrong or a porno turned horror, either one. I don't know. Sorry if all this team I, but your show lends itself to TMI sex. Dick talk, does it? Let's do. We really. I guess so. I think I think he's right. I actually think it does. So now the only definitive solution is circumcision. I'm in my thirties and practice in a group setting. Right? Can't take some time off without too much financial consequence. My question is how long Shaikh clear my schedule a patient's one week, two weeks a year. I have no clue what they're covering on. This is going to be like in the surgical site will be way too close to patients heads when the air is reclined. I don't know what kind of sutures though us out God. Oh, how much cleaning I'll be able to do while it's healing or what happens if I accidentally get interaction, they say no exercise for two to four weeks. No intercourse for six weeks. What would you do? Sincerely, Dr. Dick? Okay. Lane. It's there's a lot to unpack here. Literally. And I just feel like we should. Maybe we had the warning at the beginning of the show right? Like this future audience because obviously neither one of us are mature. This one, I think this episode is very special episode. You remember from like the eighties, like TV shows very special episode of three's come along whenever you are blossom. Right? And it was like, oh blossoms, addicted joystick, dead dicta to purple drank cough scissor. And there's like all the, you know, sitting down and all that. This is going to be one of those episodes. And I do feel like it's going to be really difficult for us to do this question without without us graphically describing our Dicks to chatter. She's gonna be interesting. So I guess just fair warning. Anybody listening. If you want to jump off this Titanic, is it goes down. Please do Lance and I will be here playing our violins. Wasn't that a senior Titanic? Where like it was an honest in the Titanic sinking and they're just like playing their violins on the on the on the deck of the ship. Do you remember that. I don't. That's what we're doing. We're playing our violence on the deck of the sinking Titanic. So if you want to tune out, go ahead. But I feel like you know what you're in for at this point, right. I think so too when I have to ask and I don't wanna ask shit, I gotta ask. What's what's your deal. Lance. Trim, do not trimmed what's going on. I considered a trimmed individual. Yeah. Okay, good. So that makes two of us. You're you're somewhat older than I am. You've experienced more of the world from, I would say worldly standpoint and also stray religion standpoint. Why is it that circumcision is associated with Jewish people? And only like it seems to be only associated with Jewish people. Yeah, yeah. I guess I just don't know enough about the Jews to be able to comment. I was. I mean, I don't know race Christian. I guess, Methodist, I don't really know something some sort of non fundamentalist sort of kind of half lazy, Lasi, fair approach to Christianity, whatever that may be. And I was circumcised in and. I kinda just thought everyone was to be honest with you. I didn't know there was a difference until I got to college and my college roommate wasn't circumcised and I didn't know what the hell was wrong with his. Keep in mind this before ubiquitous pornography right now, I feel like it's sort of a dime, a dozen you can see I I would think anybody around the age of twelve or thirteen. Maybe even younger has run into that. On their smartphone on their ipad on their macbook pro, whatever, in some form or fashion it seen an uncircumcised penis on video. I didn't know there was a freedom or fringe element whatever calling I was unaware myself. Okay. So this makes two of us who were commenting on this. We didn't even know this was even possible right. Could you imagine getting circumcised at thirty. No, I'm now I'm guessing. I mean you have you have girls, so you didn't have to make that decision, but I'm guessing that's a decision that's made in the hospital, right? I think so, yeah. And who does it. I think it was standard in the back of the day back in our day. I think so. I was OBGYN like the person delivered the baby. They stipulate nippy was a pediatrician or what? I don't nothing. I don't nothing about four skins man. I really don't. Yeah, I'm glad I'm not like a expert. I'm glad that Fox News is in calling you go in there some story about a foreskin. I'm glad I come not on their speed dial to be their resident foreskin expert. Okay. So starting this off, the first incident was painful, but not horrible. Glints. Tell me what situation could you tear some of the skin on your dick and have it not be horrible. I don't think there is one. There's not one. Yeah, it's it's horrible every ways slice it. There's no way it's not horrible. So this guy is freaking Rambo, like already just that dec- like, yeah. All right. But it wasn't terrible. Like are any dick pain is horrible pain? That's nothing that I want want to experience. Right. We waited six weeks and took it easy. Always used plenty of lube. I also the the, I forgot to go back to the after symbol, less than a -ffective for play. Whose fault was this? Was this old ladies fault? Like is this a teeth situation? Playing the blame game. Here we have who who's who's? Let's let's go to the, let's go to Alcoa. Presents you make the call. Do you remember that in Monday night, football? Like back in the eighties, you make the call. And I think he's trying to not throw his wife and or girlfriend and or mistress end or side p Sandra lover underneath the bus with this. But that does seem like. Someone got. Loosey goosey with a canine or something. Where's this? Where's this brenham? No, I don't know. Glance, I don't wanna do this buddy. I'm afraid to Google it because I don't want. I'm gonna have to and the NSA is going to come to the house. Okay. Hold on. What about private window? Is that really theft five, it it's going to have to be. I got, what would you? What would you even search penis? Fringe? Elim. About four skin, knock yourself out. It doesn't auto complete. Oh God, it's on. It's on Wikipedia fringe. Elim of preps of penis. Oh, it's that underside thing. Yeah. There's a lot of Dick's on what Kapadia Lance. Just apply ladies. Take your word for it. That's a lower incisors. Lance. I hate to tell you. I don't know of any other way. It's possible Lance besides a lower incisors. That's has to be the less than active for play for apps. So first thing is we're going to need to do some invisible line here while we're waiting for this thing, whatever you decide, healing wise start working on some invisible line. I know it can't happen again necessarily because of the surgical procedure you're having done, but I think we should have some corrective action based on that. This has to be like a rotated canine or or lateral on the lower. That's that tore this. Friend ulum. And I will. Yeah. I'm disturbed that it. There's another friend ULA that I didn't know about. Yeah, I thought I knew all the fringe alums. Right, right. Do you call it freedom or fringe? Elim. Usually call it freedom. But if I'm talking with tongue related, I called a friend Elam. I don't know if that's correct, but that's just how I roll. I like freedom is room a rhymes venom. Yeah, friend him. Well, okay. So I'm first off like my world is shaken a skew because of I've just learned of another friend Ulum front frame. Right, right. And now I'm just trying to picture how this less than effective floor play led to this. I think I have it. In my mind. We waited six weeks took it easy, always use plenty of lube. So I guess like once it weakened then just like sort of normally stuff caused it to tear twice. It doesn't say if it was twice in one session because if so. Hats off buddy like Sylvia could tear and then like pause butter put a little like, you know, in boxing, how there's like a cut man. If you get a cut over your eyes for that goo. Yeah. So you get a cut over your. I get this cut on your friend, you'll, and you start bleeding and go back to your corner for few minutes. And Bana come look at your dick? Yeah, you sit you sit on that stool in the cut man comes over. Meanwhile, another guy is squirting some water in your mouth from water bottle and my pin like your going. Taking a wet towel and just like bringing it out over the head guys like telling you what you're doing wrong, right? Right. Like you got to pace yourself buddy. You got to get in there and jab and Spar. I think coach when you're when you're going at it like that. Yes, I think you need. You need that sort of Burgess Meredith to ticket. What was his name in rocky. Jimmy. Sure. Yeah, I know his Burs matters. I don't remember. It's right Al. Nice and benign. Let's see here. Burgess Meredith, thin. Rocky Mickey. Mickey ever go Mickey docs like this. It's like, just imagine Burgess Meredith yelling at you about how you're about how you're having sex and what your technique should be. Imagine that. So so you tear it once. Then it tears. Again term wants to us twenty me. Exactly. I would think so. Last tear there's a lot of blood a lot. He's so he says a lot twice. It felt like a horror movie gun wrong. So what are when I read that? I think the shining right? Like the elevator door opens, and the torn of blood comes in is that is that the reference that we're making here is, are we to infer that there's this wall of blood? I think that would be a safe assumption. Yeah. Imagine when was the last I've ever clipped a lingual freedom. Freedom freedom for new lem innovation haven't clipped laser. Yeah, but even with the laser right. Imagine so that bleeds out much. How much does the dick one blade? I gotta think a whole lot. Yeah. Because you got a lot of blood flow down there during this Beth, this moment ain't seeing gore. I mean, that's the point you'd hope so doing it. Right. And then once this happens, I would imagine that it has to just immediately turn to terror and like the that the erection is long. Gone erection is take an international flight to Switzerland and his out of here using your fake passport right there. It's nowhere. I tear the mood is gone right. Oh, at one drop of blood dude in the mood is gone. Either direction, whatever it is like it doesn't matter. Down just thinking Burgess Meredith. This Mickey watching me have sex. Until you hit the left. Let's let's get some Burgess. Meredith quotes. Let's get some quotes from some Mickey coats and let's see how we can adapt rose. Mickey. Mickey, good milk quotes, right? Someone can just cool images here and nature has smarter than people think little by little. We lose our friends. We lose everything. We keep losing and losing till we say, you know what? The hell? I'm living around here for a guy, no reason to go on. But you kid boy, I got a reason to go on and I'm going to stay alive and I will watch you make good. So how do we make that related to sex. No, I don't know. Good luck with that. You're going to eat lightning and crap. Plunder. Hopefully after we're done, not during, that's. That would be gross. Yeah, yeah. Safe bet. Let's see here you me or nobody is gonna hit his hot as life now I can just. Pitcher, a penis saying that. Get up, you son of a bitch cause Mickey loves ya. Now that one, I think we can. We can work into say. Man is yelling at my dick to try to get the bleeding to stop, get up. You son of a bitch cause Mickey loves ya. A lot of these are our rocky quotes. I don't want to. I don't want to confuse rocky with Mickey. Okay. There's a lot of this. You're gonna eat lightning crap thunder, which is scary as well. Been there within religious. But you can't get a t shirt with a picture of Mickey on it, saying, get up, you son of a. None of that should be your secretary. Yeah, yeah. Oh, God get up. Yes. My age. Yeah, that's what I'd be doing. So good yell. It get up your son of a bitch. Polly's going to be like Mickey. How long have you been having an affair with somebody. Why are you in love with them? Right, right. Oh God. I think we finally found the title of this episode. Because Mickey Huw Jewish. Jesus. I remember we are. So now he's got to get. So I'm assuming he has to go to the doctor for this right? You ever had to go to the doctor for sex injury? I am going to say no. I've never had sex injury that's v. Vere. I guess I play it safe because I don't have any sex injuries. I could see how you could either throw out a back. Oh, yeah. This whole a muscle. Yeah, I could see how that, but you wouldn't say it's like you would sell the doctor? My backwards that wouldn't say. You know, pulled the Hammy. Yeah. Now I need Neave told knee replacement, and Tommy John surgery. But that's like a backer a muscle or something. This is your day like there's gonna be questions really what the hell happened here. I, if I was the doctor, you go to urologist for this for this. I would assume your allergist. I mean, I don't think I'd go to a plastic surgeon, hey, make look pretty good luck with that. Glance, I can tell you there are some. I mean, society is is very much. You know, we're a cosmetic aesthetic society. Penises are no different having a pretty penises very important. Do they got the vaginal rejuvenation surgery? Do they have a penis rejuvenation. Let's look at how we don't. We have to throw all about equality if they get theirs regenerate. Every Revital re juvenile did, then I want that. Get this buddy. We can use PRP's. For Pena rejuvenation treatments, the isn't that the ocean, but there was a billboard this someone sent us saying, this should be on the podcast, but some o- shod thing. And I think they've seen jetting PRP and like the paradigm. Is it the is apparently in the taint I think wh why do you need PR PR taint. I don't have to do. Okay. That's a weird one. I've never had the host. I don't know where it goes. This is from c. r. m. c. cosmetic rejuvenation medical center, which is in West Hollywood. California, of course. PRP, penile rejuvenation, the treatment for male sexual dysfunction. A healthy sex life is very important. Research has shown it provides great benefits to the mind and body yet as high as forty. Three percent of women are reportedly suffering from various sexual dysfunction such as poor, lubrication, painful sex and inability to orgasm. Percentage? Yeah, that's a bad. It's going to be a tough look for me. If if the chances of me getting you, there are zero before we even start, you need to tell me that right? Because otherwise might conference. I'm gonna need Mickey screaming at me. Get up in son of a bitch. Yeah, yeah. A considerable percentage of men also suffer from several sexual dysfunctions, including forms of rectal dysfunction and Peroni disease old favourite of the show Peroni disease. But unlike women, men's issues have a long history of treatment with pills and injections. Fortunately, there's a natural almost painless in quick nonsurgical treatment that may relieve both men and women from these sexual dysfunctions. Almost almost painless the PRP vaginal rejuvenation appear Peppino rejuvenation treatment for men. The Pierre p. Pino rejuvenation is used to improve the blood flow to the penis. Okay, which we don't need here. More blood flow with Dr Dix which results in increased since tippety and hardness of the Pena's. Someone also noticed an increase in the length and girth of the penis when erect and when flaccid after receiving this treatment, Lance, I think I can catch a flight on south west LA tomorrow morning at nine. Promotes the release of many growth factors, stimulating the original tissues compromising or comprising the penis appear p. has also been used to treat a condition inculpate rone's which is a penis problem caused by scar tissue causing plaque that forms inside the penis can make the penis bend upward or to the side. So PRP. So all you implant folks, you know, consider injecting it somewhere else. Yeah. All you guys that are centrifuge in their their blood, so you can get the stem cells going. Do you got another use you ever done that Pierre p. yeah, I took a class, but I didn't wanna pay the twelve thousand dollars to get the centrifuge. It's you just ran around in a circle in the parking with vile. File really, really hard, really, really fast. Yeah, I knew that. I know that method. So we've got to get a circumcision. I think it's inevitable. Well, hasn't you've just done it? Isn't he done now? This Email came in on Friday, so I don't think so. I mean when he tore it didn't isn't that it. Oh, yeah. I mean, it's it's. Yeah, it's. It's like when you get peace corps, right? It's like the only way to fix this. Get out the damn wisdom tooth, right? Yeah. Yeah, I would think that when you're done. After your wisdom teeth come out, what's the next thing that gets removed from your body? Just sort of chronologically. Wisdom teeth, and then you're good for a while and then it's like gallbladder when you're in your fifties or something. Sure. What else. Right chatter, finale alley Sergia who just had it, but that's like a freak thing. I wouldn't say that's like expect that right. So I feel like it's, it's, it's nothing. It's your porn. And then what's I like tonsils adenoids really? Theoretically, you should be borne and it'd be circumcised like right away. Why are we not circuit? Why? Why are people not getting circumcised. They're saying it's a barbaric thing to do the sent barbaric when you rip your. You know, fringe element in your thirty s very form consent kind of thing. The child didn't consent have as we whipped out and Klett off. So. Let let them decide for themselves when they're of age. So horrible. Are you? Okay? So I'm with you by just for for a God. Fearing Christian child or a Jewish child. You're born, it's foreskin gone right away. So that's the first thing that goes. Then it's tonsils adenoids, probably. Right. That'd be sure theoretically the first surgery that you may have as a kid, then wisdom teeth. Yeah. And then to nothing for a long time. And then like you get fat and your gallbladder goes, yeah. So this is like a nice little bridge between wisdom teeth and gallbladder for Dr. Dick, right? I think so that sounds about this is one of the things that's like it's filling the space. It's sort of like like that shitty period of the year after the Super Bowl. And before the NCAA tournament starts like we're, there's no sports going on. Yeah. When you find time like watch other stuff that you've been meaning to catch you up on early Suffolk borders that they'll put the Olympics in there ever every four years, and that's a great place for perfect because there's nothing else happening. Right? So it's like the the, the circumcision in your thirties is like the Winter Olympics of surgeries for your life. Right? You Tonya Harding could do this. I'm pretty sure we could get gloomily or who was the fat one Sean something or other. To just whack at it with a with a crowbar something until the four skins gone. That's one way. I mean, I'm sure there's different methods and techniques and. Yep. You think you're all just go to a lot of CE about circumstance. Circumcisions God, I can't imagine it's a high production procedure, right? I wouldn't think so. It's pro. What would like a Kloesel compa Cousteau composite a third molar for us. Right, right. It's in a spa. It's a, it's a crappy production procedure in a spot. We don't want to be right. Adult circumcision is for a urologist. He's probably getting paid sixty seven dollars for this and he's got a handle your dick and he's got to deal with this adult who's weeping about having to be circumcised now in their thirties. So the good news is he's in a group setting where he can take some time on. If it were me, I would literally have it done in the morning for seeing them worrying and I would like work that afternoon or vice versa. I would work all morning and like have it done at four o'clock and be back to work the next day because I got to cut teeth buddy. You're probably the same way, right? You got to cut some freaky. I just don't know what how laid up I'd be 'cause man, I'm thinking I'm not going to be. 'cause you gotta go from op top and get a stand up and walk. I'm I'm thinking, I'm I'm in this baby. Did after your youngest child is born? Did you get snipped? I did. How long were you laid up for that three days? Maybe forty five minutes. I think I played basketball the next day. I mean, I was, you know. The worst thing you could divest the worst sport. Yeah, it was definitely against doctor's orders, but hey, the team needed me. Jesus. It was just it was such a non. I went to this guy that it was no sutures, no shots, no, nothing in the no shot sounded interesting, but he had. Did you ever see demonstration? I never. I've never used it, but I, we had a demo and dental school where it was under pressure. The get. Yeah, that's it would hurt worse. Well, it was. It was a it felt like a rubber band being snapped on talk. Lance cheeses. Yeah, except it's on your bulls. Yeah. Yeah. Let's just the fast efforts. Barely anything there. And like it was so funny. This guy had mad respect for me. He goes, oh my God, you must know where all the nerves are because you have to give a shot over here for that to miss tooth and all that. He's like, I don't even barely know unless it they're going, oh, shit, you, you understand the hunky less right dude. You're gonna get this numb, right? Oh, no, I I know where what I'm doing. But yeah, he shot through and you see this this cloud of anaesthetic wafting in the air because it goes right through the. Scrotum through the vast difference and out the other side. It'll leaves an exit wound like John f. Kennedy. Jackie Kennedy's behind you. Trying to gather up all this, this miss in inner pink dress, and it was funny, Holly was in the room. She's like, I want to make sure this happened. So I'm gonna witness, make sure you did it. And it was because of that. And it was a very minor incision and use the same small hole to yank out the vast difference in cut it and then cauterize it and then suture, the ends twice. And then he put like a little you ever buy those. You get bag of potato chips and you put a clip on the end of the bag to keep for JyP. He clip your slipped my balls for about ten minutes. And then then he says, okay, you're good. Gave me some ice and then Holly drove me home. And then I, I felt pretty good. The next day said, fuck, I, let's go play some basketball. Tim, I, I don't even know what to say. It's just like, I'm just. Puckered sill hard thinking of the pain involved with this. Had my brain is even working. I just think that that's the vast difference every there's so few nerve endings compared to this dickhead ripe at this. That's an open. I mean, that's e even in your situation, it's an open incision it's like the inside part of your body. And then tuck like pulling something out and tucking it right back in, it seems more invasive to me than like this is like aesthetic Crowley. It was kind of like the incision was maybe two, three millimeters wide. You remember when you were doing your filleting the body and gross anatomy, and it used scissors and kind of reverse cut. It was closed in the open it up, and that that opening kind of cut is the separate the skin from the Tisch the the muscle tissue stuff. He remember that. The human body, you're killing me. You're killing me at these positives. A crochet hook, see, basically crochet hook to go screw ac- stirring around in your stack, looking for the vast deference and then Yanks it out. So the vast efforts as out of the scrotum, and then he's like, oh, hey, look. And then you know, I'm looking down. Did you get this done on the street and Fremont like under the bridge for that, China's your remember the ever seen that video on YouTube, the Jaipur dentists and he's like breaking? Yes, this is you with your with your balls basically? Yeah. Was that that toothless that chick with the love groove the Yulon to the Hooker on first avenue? Yeah, she also on her side action is, is her side hustle? Is she Jesus? I think this is less invasive than a vasectomy. I think it may be initially a little bit more more have more hime so to speak as if we're going to speak in assistant code. That means like, hey, there's a bunch of blood in here, and I don't wanna say the word blood and through my patients. So I will say, can you please get that hime for me, I think I think you're going to be more him on this, but I think it's a less invasive procedure. I know you disagree, but I think it's less invasive with so many more nerve endings on your dickhead. Then on your scrotum? I'm not saying there isn't, but I'm just saying from a healing perspective, I think there's less going on. Maybe. I mean, it's it's going to kind of just be sort of a small incision circum for intially around your penis locked down. So bad, dude, God, that sounds so bad. I don't know how my question is, how long clear? My schedule a patient's one week, two weeks a year. I've no clue what they're covering. I actually think do like a day and a half. It's probably probably his isn't. Have you ever made a pie in you take that layer? Where are you going to take that layer? The top layer to go to over the covering of the fruit, and it's going to be exceed the the, the diameter of the of the pie. Tin ain't right. And you take a knife and you kind of put it against the side of the pie. Tin and and right cut around up and down, trim inter. Hal we around. I'm pretty sure they have something like that that holds the foreskin out of the way. And then they just trim it along like you're cutting, trimming a pie, like a cigar cutter that would be probably better. I sent a patient for aesthetic crawling, a buddy of mine that was doing veneers on cinema Perio. I at crawling and he goes and he takes me back is, okay, I got my gums circumcision today. I laughed at that ever since. I think that's more invasive. I think aesthetic crawling king is more invasive than this. I know what's in your mouth versus down below, but aesthetic chronic till you got to remove bone. There's a Secta me involved. There's no. I mean, other than like this sort of metaphorical bone. There's no like miss. There's no a stick to me here. Just a soft tissue, man. It's extra soft tissue. I think a week, I, I think a week is more than enough, and I think if you have the luxury to do week, but I wouldn't do a week. I do like a couple of hours. Because you know people get hips, replaced, or knees replaced. They have, you can half way to there. You walked that day. Yeah, right. Because they want you to load like. He's going to do the circumcision and some physical therapists comes in with a playboy and and a bottling Juergens like come on. We're right on it, man. We gotta get on it. I'm gonna. Have you have you stroke in this weighing against this? You're not going to be bedridden like this. You're going to get after it, man. Here's the Viagra and in between on our, we're going to come in here and make sure that you can make this happen. Get up, you son of up. What was the rest of that quote? We said, it's seventeen times. I don't remember. I've already forgotten. Make you rock and quotes. Cause Mickey loves. You. So seventeen minutes ago we've already forgotten it. What's the rest of this question? I have no clue what they're covering. This is gonna be like in the surgical site will be way too close to patients heads when the chairs recline. Yeah, but it's just off your sue. I don't know if there's even going to be sutures. I don't know. I think it's gonna be a little raw. I think the injuries going to be worse. Do. I don't know. I don't have a ton of experience of foreskin slants I, I had mine. Eighty without my without my consent when I was less than a day old. So you know, that's my internal battle them facing on a daily basis and. Not that I don't lament in think back would it could have been? Yes, hashtag not whole is is is mind movement on that. I'm incomplete, incomplete, a hundred percent. That's exactly right. I honestly, I, I bet they have him wear like some boxer briefs or whatever, packed a little bit of gauze. I think that's, I think that's it. I don't think he's got an ice anything down. And honestly, I don't think you need to worry about getting interaction. Yeah, that shouldn't happen. I mean, you could have the hottest blonde est. Assistant hygienist, whoever? Yeah, with the best. Body you've ever seen in your entire life. And if you just had surgery on that, I'm sorry, it's just not gonna happen your eunuch for a little bit. Yeah. I mean. You could be yelling at a get up, you son of a bitch for hours, looking at whatever floats your boat, and it's just not gonna. You're just not going to be in that space, mental yell, all you want. Good luck. Yes. So I think you need to wait. I don't know what kind of suture so us. I don't know if they do use you with a laser thing now. I don't even know the hell. It's probably electric surge. They just go on and cauterize cuts. What is that smell like? A really bad barbecue. God. Some of the you need to worry about an erection now I'm on. I honestly would take like half a day. That's just me because I got to work if you don't have to work take a week. Yeah, you're in a group and I really think about like day to, you're going to be like, fuck I get work, right? I have a strong suspicion that, yeah, day to forty eight hours later you're sitting there watching the reruns of of days of our lives and the prices writes coming up next and you're like, shit. I want to cut some teeth. Yeah, daytime, TV is a great motivator. Get the hell. That's right. Although, I guess now with streaming like you watch anything, right? You're not if you're binge watching. You could get through a couple of seasons. All right. Yeah, it says they say no exercise for two to four weeks and no intercourse for six weeks. I think that's do blood flow though. Right? They're still want to start bleeding again. Like what kind of dentistry are you doing like you really get the blood flowing down underneath your belt like, hey, look dentistry. Don't give me your time. Never. I've never gotten like half chopped up because I was like super excited about that class composite. I was gonna. Gray. Yeah. Like I, I'm just in a leather phase right now. It's like, I'm, you know, I'm not full hard, but like, you know, it's, there's there's some blood flow in going, you know, that's just dentistry is never done that to me. I don't think you need to work. No, no, no, I haven't seen would be back to work pretty quick. I, I don't think it'd be very long. How much time did you miss for your to me? I mean, I know you like hoop did up. You thought you were Gary Payton the next day. But back the day I. I mean, I did this on a Friday. I was back to work Monday. I didn't take any time off. Okay. Have you told her daughters, the story, they know some of the story that usually when I start getting going there, like dad gross stop to think about your. Visit my daughter. Homecoming done a wazoo in Pullman, Washington last weekend, and they, I was taking some photos of the. You're taking your some photos of your day while you're there. They had people are Bryant chalk all over the sidewalk and on the the banister and things like that. And I leaned forward to get a good picture of the sign or something like that. And I and I got us chocolate or my jeans and I'm like, oh, brianna, God, it. I got school spirit all over my pants. She's, of course dad stop casino up. It's time to stop. Yeah, I'll just keep going. So doctor Dake we, we think probably follow the doctor's instructions as far as exercise and intercourse. But like if you, if you have the ability to take off, take off. If not go back to work Kennex eight, you'll be fine. You really will be fine. They're gonna bandage you up. You're going to have on some protective underwear. I promise you interactions not gonna happen. He'll be fine. Everything's find. It's all good. It's so easy for me to say because it's not thing this is the easiest. Uh-huh. Wow. Well, I'm glad I'm not you buddy. I'm glad I had that done when I was one day old hashtag incomplete hashtag, where with the other one, not my choice. But nobody's slow, no means no, Larry. Yeah, I'm I'm just I'm thankful that I've not had to work with or had to worry about what what was the opening line less than four point. God, that's a greatest dismount. Yes, we got the Russian judges, the hard one, Russian judges. Uh-huh. All right. You ready for ready to Quincy. We we did that in about thirty eight minutes. All right, maybe even a little bit more than that, I'll read it question from Reddit user gnome in disguise. I have some Vannier 's okay. V. a. n. e. e. r. s. I got some of them van ears, and I'm very careful with him, but could I use some denture adhesive on them for a costume party. At age. Seventeen. I got my van ears on the top six front teeth. Only my dentist was extremely kind and generous in did it for me at a huge discount. I won't go into reasons why I needed them. I'm now twenty one and I'm going to a costume party with some friends as a group of vampires. They're all using fake fangs in pressing them to their teeth with denture it. He sieve, I'm very nervous about using it all my van ears. If I do use it, will it cause damage or even rip them out the teeth? Hold stick to my real ones unless I use it. Thanks, edit. Thanks for the advice. Number one, I decided to go ahead and just be a vampire with bottom fangs instead. The most stupid looking vampire in the group, right? It's the worst vampire. You suck it vampire. Okay. I didn't even know vampires had bottom things. It is literally all about the maximum. It was all about the next one. No one gives a shit about. Does. I never even knew like they had them? No. I. I. I don't know why spelling van veneers as Vannier 's like throwing me off man. I'm having a hard time getting past it. Yeah. All right. So if you put the fanny and this is a very appropriate question for our first October episode with with Halloween coming. If denture, he pulls off your veneers, your veneer was already following a favor. Yeah, this this isn't the catalyst simply set. Set it free this mortal coil, like it was already dead and falling off. This just was the very last thing. I love this person. This is yes, don't risk it like other than it just like you're going to have to brush your veneer fifteen times to get the Detroit he's off. But other than that, it's fine. It's fine. What don't risk? What. Yeah, it's kind of like a, I'll have a new hygienist and she'll be nervous about cleaning the teeth. If there's venues I, what did they pop off? Well, shit. If if it pops off something's wrong with that bond, it there's no way it should come off with a routine prophylaxis. So knock knock yourself out. Somebody else said you've got to look at the upside and the downside. The downside is huge. What are you talking about? Really? What are you talking about? Finally, finally, some sense. Somebody says denture. He isn't really. He's if it's just wet goo. That helps section. Yeah. And another person said this, I don't think that most people here realize our denture it. He's really is if inner comes off due to denture, he's if it's going to come off with gum or any other sticky case. Chew to freedom comes a ton of, yes, it doesn't stick to anything, which I think is I do still make freedom thing. So. Bullshit such bullshit advertising. Another person. I wouldn't risk it. Some risk. Yeah. Is like what apple was saying like, this is the worst place to be getting advice, dental advice, other idiot, non dentists. The original poster came back and said, yeah, especially since it hurt a lot when they were done, I resist novacaine the whole procedure took eight to nine hours of pain.

It's about anime, which I guess is like that weird Japanese like weird cartoon, still feel like people with big eyes and stuff like that. In a lot of close in a lot of posting something called animal crossing, which all I can tell from a very quick perusal of that surrounded, is it some sort of game? Okay. So you're talking. I mean, I know the fact that you are searching the internet and found stuff. Are you now on some FBI list? Are they watching lands up? I've already been on on the list. Right, right.

And how are you feeling. Hold on. I missed fill faith mourns. Correct. Twenty four thousand subscribers. It's just people showing off their apes. Now I'm disappointed. Yeah, I would think this is gonna be different. I always say you, this is going to be a lot. Yeah, it's always worse. Yeah, it's just showing base. It's just a bunch of apes. It's just a bunch of people in Subaru's showing pictures of their vase. And I know it's because you can see the steering wheel behind it. Who would have known that Subaru was the guy. I've seen four superstring wheels while just scrolling through the suburb vapor porn. Who would have thought I would have thought that the vapors love supers. It's a thing. I don't know what kind of car that is. How bad is it that I don't recognize the logo at the center of the steering wheel on a car. It's gotta be some foreign, I would assume. Yeah, safe bet. Yeah, there's another Subaru. Four super is in the I I don't know. I'm probably like fifty flicks of my finger to this point. Oh, here's a vape that says, humble. I don't know why you would put the letters humble on your vape. Maybe they misspelled Humboldt. What are those figurines. Humble, humble, Hummel, Hummel figurines idea. Isn't that a thing? Hummel figurines. I mean, look it up. I'm pretty sure. That's a thing. Okay. I'll trust you. Yeah, Hummel figurines. You would recognize them. They're like, yeah, baby. That's what they meant. Why? Why does our society need a separate it called Vate porn that has twenty five thousand people that are members of it. I, I don't know that just. Oh, okay. I see the Hummel figurines. Yeah, I don't think people who are into Hummel figurines are also indicates. They shouldn't make a Hummel figuring that's like my first vape. Yeah. Yeah. I'm sure you could make one of these into a Bong. Listeners, if you know how to make a humble figurine, hit us up with that, how to do. Jesus. Why do people care this much about their vape. I don't. You just go to the store and buy vape and like then you have a vape. It looks like these people are custom building their vapes. Yeah, I don't that. That's just another subculture that I'm glad I don't live in that world. I just don't get that. Is. Holy shifts. Yeah, the world is. Just about do it for tonight. So I even if it didn't even didn't just do it. I think we'd have to end the show tickets our. God. Tell your friends. I guess both of them. If you have any friends that are into vape porn or forty minutes of discussing of discussing surgeries on Dick's let them know. About this winning show. Yeah. But seriously.

God, it's going to be bad. There will be blood. Will be blood. There will be blood. I drink your milkshake. Lance. Hit us up on Instagram. I hit us up on Twitter and Instagram at which is w. I n. t. e. r. f. e. r. e. NCES. Hit. You can find me on Instagram at Joshua Austin. Yes, you can find Lance on Instagram at DR. Timmerman DM de, let's whose turn his crucial. This is your turn. It's my toes. Okay. Hold on. Let me look at my. What happens is if I hear a song that I would like to put on the show, I try to snap a picture of it. So let me look through my phone here and here's the last one. This is a, this is an artist name Brett Dennen d. e. n. e. n. and he's he's got a really interesting voice. He quite frankly is a pretty horrible singer. But he's horrible and like a right way. I don't know if that makes sense. So he looks like if Ron Weasley was allergic to bees and got stung by a bunch of bees and eight, eight hundred Oreos. That's sort of what I would say. He's kind of fat, Ron Weasley. Any sounds like. I don't even put it works, whatever it is at work. So he still has a private. He's better than Bob Dylan. It's not needs biz Boone, Dan. But it's not great. I mean, he's not. We'll Ferrell from stepbrothers. He's from central California. Uh-huh. Is that a city? It's the forgotten part of California? Yeah. It doesn't say where he's from. It just says he's from central California. Okay. Just kinda stroll actually. When I'm digging onto oakdale California. So finally does say, all right, tickets run Modesto. But I thought it was strange for seeing just cities from central California. Yeah. Is there a city or town name? Central because he got nor cab. And everybody else is like everybody else. So he's kind of a singer songwriter kind of guy. He's got a lot of good songs actually have several of his albums, and I make fun of them, but about not being good series just not like traditionally a great singer, and I think you'll, you'll hear it in his voice. When you hear this particular one like is called the comeback kid. It's just got a good, good, snappy beat to it. All right, sounds good. It's songs. It's all like all here during the day at the office, and then there'll be a my head. Okay, perfect. When I when I, when I get home letter, so it's called the comeback kid in parentheses. That's my dog. So. This is a shoutout to Dr. Dick, you're going to be the comeback kid buddy. You're going to get through this and you're going to be better off without that and start going to synagogue. Now that you've been circumspect sitting now you can go. For Lance Timmerman. I'm Joshua Austin piece. Golly. And. One. Reigns. Who is kind of in the bathroom. It's back on track. Dr. Come on. Listen. Stain. Is back on track. Dr. Back now. Maybe. Combs. The kid.

Skip a workout or to our brush our teeth with eight tired old toothbrush. We're not perfect, but we can do better and quip is a better electric toothbrush that can help people brush too hard and some electric toothbrushes or too abrasive.

So hey quip. Thanks for actually listening to the show and number two. I like having things in my life. That are like just a beautiful little thing. Something that sparks joy. If you will to coin a phrase and quip is a really well-designed toothbrush. Like, it'll make you happy to handle it or makes me happy to handle it. And how many of you can say that about your toothbrush? I also do really like that. They have the regular schedule of sending you a new brush head and that five dollars is actually pretty cheap.

Hi, I'm Ana Marie Cox and welcome to with friends like these the show where we talk about the differences between us without letting them divide us. This week's guest is come to symbolize that project. Rick Wilson, former Republican current never Trumper and provocateur he is back after an extended hiatus from this show do some slight previews here. We talk a bit. No. Can we talk a lot about the impending doom that we both feel? We also talk about what you can do about that sense of impending doom. He answers my question about how he wound up voting in the Florida election, but I will do a minor spoiler here until you it wasn't a very satisfying answer. Yeah. I think that'll look in any case Rick is back in he promised. He won't be gone for as long as he was again. Here is Rick Wilson, Rick. It has been a long time. It has been a minute. Yes. And I was going to start off with a joke about how we don't have anything to talk about. But. What time is too short to joke around. I have a long list of things to talk to you about. Then I'm going to go with I kind of insight that only you can offer our listeners, which is are you still talking to Republicans on the hill. I'm still talking to Republicans on the hill. Absolutely. Tell me what is happening. Like explained to me. So a lot fewer guys in the house these days because a lot of the people that I spoke to before either retired or lost because they were the the remaining sane people. So we've got we're now down to the sort of like cleanest and Lurlene caucus in the house for you know, the rest the red state guys on the Senate side. I will tell you insight from a senior Senate staffer that that I got this morning a guy who's who's who's who's boss is up in twenty twenty and it was publicly miserable right now because he is being forced to, you know, live in fear of a primary if he says one word against Trump, or if he says, we've got to stop the shutdown, but their numbers are showing how bad it is the senate's own. Pollster for the Senate caucus is telling them how bad this is. They know this is a losing proposition. They know their clock is running out. And they know they're gonna. Own this in twenty twenty. It's just it's a perfect example of the misery that Donald Trump inflicts on these people because they have no moral courage to get away from it. And I can't think of tour words to say. But I guess I'm hoping to get from you like vicariously maybe from talking to people on the hill. My mind is kind of frozen by this like. I like everyone else. I I guess I'm waiting for Tony Romo to explain. What's going to happen next? You know, I mean. We can go down a rabbit hole of metaphors to about missed calls and whatnot. But I really feel like no one really knows how this is going to end. There is no in game. And the thing I keep on thinking to myself is like what the fuck is Trump thinking? And then I really remember he's not thinking like, correct? This is all a you know, an endless sort of spasm of Trump. This look we often ascribed at Trump's some sort of plot or scheme in his head. It's all impulsive, it's all in the moment. It's all how do I, you know, detonate one crisis to get into the next crisis. How do I keep the ball up in the air one more day? How do I how do I keep my ass is on fire? Can I run fast enough to put it out or can I run fast enough where it doesn't hurt? And so everything is always about these short term. It's all to the next tribal council on the survivor or the next moment of table flipping on the housewives. It's always this drama. He wants to create and he's he's getting what he wants in some ways right now. Now, even though it's bad for him. Even though it's bad for the country. Even though it's bad for his party. He's getting what he wants. He doesn't wanna talk about Robert Muller and Rudy Giuliani. Going completely Bonker palooza off the rails. He wants to talk about Nancy Pelosi won't let him speak in the house of representatives. He wants to talk about the Covington kids he wants to talk about anything. But the big things in front of him. And I do feel like, you know, this is all very toddler soccer team. Right. Like, we just all like rushed to the ball wherever it is. And we're allowing him to be the the biggest squad est guy on the team. Just hog the ball or kick it wherever and then we all follow. And I wonder you know, I mean, it's it's so easy to talk about him. But are you as as a Republican operative, maybe even or former Republican operative as amazing as I am at the media's willingness to just go along with this? Well. The most disappointing thing in the last couple of weeks is this complete failure of the media to understand that this is a prank. Yeah. And this endless thing. Trump made an offer today. No. He didn't make an offer. This is like saying I want to buy this house from someone, but I wanna pay them in quote lose or or some imaginary fucking currency, and it doesn't work that way. And so saying, I get my wall, and you get me to to reopen the government it's not a serious offer. It's not a serious thing. And the fact that he is defined the presidency down so far that the only thing we're talking about is whether or not he's going to get a wall or not. You know, that's playing Trump's game. It's so fucking stupid media doesn't they don't need to do the fake Washington thing of treating it. Like, there's a good faith offer on the table is. That's the old way of doing things. What blows my mind is. This is this is false equivalency like writ large in crayon on the bathroom wall. And I just want to spell it out in case people aren't clear like what has happened is. He is holding hostage situation. He created it's sort of like 'cause you know with Dhaka and TPS but temporary protective status. He's the one who took those things away. And now he's saying he's putting on them on the table to make them deal. And it really is the most blatant exhibited of hostage taking possibly imagine. Like we used that metaphor with him before. It just blows my mind that this could be considered at all serious because the classic scene from the movie blazing saddles where the guy puts the gun to his own head. And he says watch out he's crazy. He'll do it. Well, except that he's putting the gun to his the government's heading doesn't realize that he's a part of the government. It really is that scene. And what I when people ask me what's going to happen. What I keep on saying. Is that like, you know, a nihilist will always win any fight, right? Because it's the nihilists who won't move. If you throw rocks at his head like, it's the nihilist who won't move the rocks at his friends head like if you have someone who doesn't believe anything is worth anything. They will win any contest, you know. And we've turned this into that. And it's not that it doesn't have to be that. That's. We've had this sort of slow motion collapse in this country since I'm gonna say since twenty ten and we turned debate in the house and Senate into a thing of the past because debate now is merely a chance for one side of the other to go out and do a fundraising appeal for their Email lists, you didn't think Ted Cruz is really trying to shut down the government over ObamaCare. It was Ted Cruz raising money for his Email lists. And the thing that happens on both sides of the political fence, we stopped doing budgets, and we started doing nothing, but CR's and these emergency spending bills and all this patchwork of bullshit, and we stopped having a congress that that took his job seriously. And so when you've got somebody in the White House who wants chaos who wants gridlock who wants nothing, but exiled and destruction and nervous. And so we can ride in and play the great man on the white horse. We as a country. We need to do something meaningful to deal with this. And you know, leadership in congress has to do something meaningful to deal with it. You know, and I've given up on my party in the house, particularly displaying any kind of of moral, courage. They're done, and like I said most of my friends from the house they're out. Now, we're left with you know, the the rump of the Trump movement with those guys and you get twenty two members of Congress Republican members of congress vote against keeping the US in NATO yesterday. I mean there used to be a common thread where Republicans and Democrats agreed on fundamental national security questions like yeah. Nato's an alliance that's existed for seventy years and kept us out of a nuclear war in Europe. Sit good thing. It's a pretty solid. Good thing. Republicans loved at Democrats loved it. Now, we have to have this Trump era of of phoney dick swinging nationalism that leads to votes like that. I just Washington is breaking itself faster because. A Trump there were there were cracks in in the system there were problems in the system on both political parties. But you know, you're right that as a nylon Trump is always going to blow up everything, and he doesn't care what the damage is. He doesn't care about these people. He doesn't care about the eight hundred thousand government employees. The only thing I think he's going to start caring about is his own numbers. And those are collapsing even among Republicans right now, and we can talk about this as a little bit more. And then I went to actually move to some stuff that hasn't gotten covered because people are busy talking about this. And it was an insight by Benji Saarland on Twitter where he pointed out like this terrible polling, and he said, you know, the thing that doesn't get said for some reason in coverage of Trump is that he is just manifestly unpopular and always has been like this is not an embattled president. This is not a president that struggling this is a president who is on popular with a majority of the American people, and what I would add to that is that he gets covered as though this were some. An equivalent fight as though there were as many people in the country that supported him as didn't support him. He gets covered as though those maga- shudders were somehow equivalent to the people who just who want something different. And if you look at the numbers right now in the private polling. They're showing about what the sort of poll averages showing where Trump's number approval number right now is about thirty six thirty five percent now that would be a red alert screaming hot mess for any president. He has a boundary layer where he doesn't ever get above about forty two forty three percent. He has a boundary layer on the bottom that we thought was there about forty six thirty seven percent. But now, he's drifting below it. And I think the secret of that. I think the reason the shutdown will end is that a lot of the people that are being hurt by this shut down in the eyes of the Maga, folks. Look a lot like the Maga, folks. I mean, these are not government officials who were riding around in limousines, and in DC with security clerics. These are forty thousand dollars thirty five thousand dollars thirty two thousand dollars a year, people working TSA and places like that. And at some point, you know, Kevin Hassett from the White House today, it came out and said, look we're going to have zero economic growth this quarter. If this keeps up, you know, and so so blowing up the GDP to own the libs, you know, that affects Wall Street, but these stories from these folks are penetrating. The lives of people across the country. And you know, I spoke to somebody yesterday who was a federal employees in Florida. And the guy just said he goes, I'm showing up for work every day, he says, but you know, CitiBank doesn't care about excuses after you know, thirty or sixty or ninety days I'm going to be in real trouble. And I've got to pay the mortgage coming up in less than a week. And I don't know how I'm going to do it. I told him I feel for you. I don't I try to work with your Bank everything else. But those things can't iterative out over eight hundred thousand people without enormous damage, and you know, and I know there's a theory that Trump wants to do this to shut down the government and break the back of the federal direction. These people are rank and file line people. These are ordinary day to day, folks. And you know, whether you like it or not we do not live in some sort of an Randy and libertarian paradise where everything is settled with either duels or contracts. There's a government out there. Most of these job. Are out there for pretty legitimate reasons, and the destructiveness of this because of Trump's you know behavior isn't about some deeper philosophical argument. It's just about had being stubborn bitch about his wall. And what I think this is done is its forced the Trump argument out of culture and symbols, you know, like we you could previous to this. You could have like a clerk and Kentucky or a TSA worker in Alabama be a Trump supporter. Yeah. Because their basic day to day life was just what it was. Right. They liked Trump because of his brashness and Trump because he owns the libs and all of that. And they could do they could tell their friends, and they could vote for him in that'd be fine. He's now done something to their lives, which he was going to do. Anyway, I would argue I would argue that the way he was running government was eventually going to get to them that he's done it in this incredibly dramatic way. He's forced a bunch of people who maybe weren't like rally. Attendees, you know. But who kinda just liked the idea of a Trump presidency? He's the one who's put a gun to their heads and force them to have an opinion on him. You know, and it turns out. These seem to have a negative opinion. You know, you you may not know this about me, but I consume a fair amount of right wing media because because I'm curious about that world. And so I've been listening to Rush Limbaugh and listening to Lyn back, and they have maybe it's the same five group of federal workers that call into all these shows. But they have these people calling in and being like, I don't care if I'm not getting a paycheck. You know, build the wall love me, some Trump, and I don't know why I'm being being mocking if my southern accent? But my best friend's southern accent. You can mock southern accents, those people are the exception. And I think a lot of that is is astroturf, frankly. The outliers of people in the government who are now going into the first month without a paycheck of any kind and who are getting food from soup kitchens and food pantries the few that are so supportive of Trump. Like, I said, they're they're outliers in this equation. I will say this. I think the shutdown has a built in timer in it that as snap benefits. Start to expire. You're going to see these stories accelerate well beyond eight hundred thousand federal workers in into two groups, the genuinely needy on snap, and supplemental assistance, and you're also going to see because there's a meaningful fraction. It's not a huge fractions of meaningful fraction of Trump voters. Who are also on snap. And that's gonna hit them hard and the hypothetical wall versus the actual empty stomach is going to be a challenge for them in the next two weeks. It's also going to start in this might be a segue into something else. I wanted to talk to you about it's gonna have an impact on opioid treatment. And that is a thing that affects everyone, but it is something that Trump country has seen it's made made visible and Trump country. I always there's been some slow progress on the treatment stuff. And if it comes to a halt, they're going to be deaths that he owes. Yeah. I I do I want to point out that there are just as many rich people who are junkies as poor people. It just the rich rich people get to hide it for a longer, and I say junkie as with love, by the way, not at term of disparagement. So no one right in about that please in actually so this. I'm just gonna quickly say something because I don't want to talk about stuff we disagree with. But I'm going to remind you again, I know more meth heads than you, do and you make. I Sark chasm and joking aside. You know, this is a country where where people are going to seek out drugs and on the front end were really really terrible at preventing it for both, quote, unquote, legal origin drugs and illegal origin drugs. But especially in the course of this opioid epidemic. We need to address this as a nation. It is a legitimate public health crisis of enormous proportions and it's not coming over carried by the Mexican drug smugglers. It's coming from FedEx from China, you know, a lot of it. And the fact that we've basically that border patrol and customs isn't going to be inspecting as many packages because they're shutdown means more is going to come in. This problem is going to continue to to drive us as a major cause of death in this country. So it's going to it's going to be pretty hard. I agree. And this is just my semi regular plea for you to not much. Doc, Trump supporters as meth addicts because they aren't necessarily an I know more meth addicts than you do arm here in you. Very very few of the ones that I know happen to be Trump supporters. Did you know that eighty percent of New Year's resolutions fail by February?

Journalists Midi has gone is known around the world for his televise take downs of presidents and prime ministers. He goes up front on zero and is a columnist for the intercept and in his new podcast deconstructed many unpacked a game changing news event of the week while challenging the conventional wisdom in a tight thirty minute package quicker than what we do. Here. He starts his show with his take on one. Topic in what the mainstream news is getting wrong. Or what context is being missed. And then he goes into a deep analysis in conversation with his guest or guests of the week and get this. His guests have included Judd, appetite, Bernie Sanders and Hassan Manhattan. So he kinda covers the gamut. I would say in terms of who you might be expecting. It's everyone from communities to politicians to for instance, stiff on Clark's fiance. So you're going to hear from a lot of different people and the show is covered such topics as the violence in Gaza from the perspective of Israeli activists against the occupation. And of course, police shootings as through the eyes of the fiance of Stephen Clarke. Also, he's talked about the dangers of John Bolton with former diplomats as a Brit and a Muslim an immigrant based and Donald Trump's Washington DC Midi Hassan gives a refreshingly provocative perspective on the ups and downs of American and global politics deconstructed to show that cut. Through political drivel and media misinformation to give you a straight take on one. Big news story of the week. It is out every Friday just like this pod. You can listen and subscribe at the intercept dot com slash deconstructed, aren't any podcast platform. I want to move on a little bit too. Again, a place where we can have a nice feel-good agreement, but also be terrified which is the recent report from the director of national intelligence, did you happen to take a look at that, my friend. I know intelligence is something you care about enemy something I care about. But I'm not sure which you're talking about the Chinese report or the shame. Dan Coats report released yesterday. They didn't do a classified version. He felt the need to do just public version because he's so concerned. I haven't read it yet. Oh, my friend upon my friend. None of this will be surprising to you. I'm going to read a bit of it. And can maybe just go from here traditional adversaries will continue temps to gayness or influence taking advantage of changing conditions in the international environment and dominance, including the weakening of post World War, Two international order dominance of western ideals, Russian efforts to increase its influence authority like to continue the ability of individual in groups have a larger impact than ever before is undermining traditional institute. Do you want me to go on or you getting sort of? No, you know, I think that is the intelligence community flagging the issue as they say. And rightly so I think it's interesting for to serve packet a little bit here. So there is an annual report that the director of national intelligence does. Usually there's a classified version in unclassified version in one as soon as the classified versions more has more depth to it. Right. This year, Dan Coats, released only an unclassified version, and he hasn't said why exactly wait. No. He said he he believes that transparency is the key for the public ain't trust in the intelligence community. The who has who's person who's done the most to undermine the trust that people have in the intelligence community that would be Dan Coats as a boss. His immediate supervisor on the on the wiring diagram there, look, I think the intelligence community has been talking for a long time. About the degree to which the changing multipolar world has left us unprepared. As a nation that is pretty much invincible on the military side. You know, no one wants to come and play in our in our on our ball field when it comes to blow and shit up. And part of the reason we're unprepared for this for a change world with multipolar actors who aren't engaged in direct military competition with us is on the military side on the head to head fight. We're pretty much invincible. We are really good at killing people and really good at blowing shit up. And if you're not some country going up against us, and you wake up in the middle night, and you hear loud explosions, and it feels like the wrath of God, that's probably the US air force. So those things have left our competitors in the world, China, Russia, Iran, a variety of other cat and dog bad guys looking for ways to disrupt our institutions to disrupt our. To disrupt our society, they're using these tools that are not traditional military, tools, and they're leveraging propaganda. They're leveraging online media, they're leveraging the big data. They're using all these things and these things all fundamentally rely on stoking division and resentment now what happens when you're Ladimir Putin. And you're like, oh, my goal is to stoke division resentment in the United States. What happens when you've got a Donald Trump as essentially your asset, essentially, your avatar to divide the country to break the systems to shatter institutions to break the norms that we custom to that have worked for a long time to constrain the excesses of both sides of the political quesion you end up with the situation where at right now. That's why it feels exhausting every day. That's why people won't closure on on Muller and everything else. All the time. It's a feature, unfortunately, not a bug. Well, it's a feature for Putin. I mean, it's definitely. You know what he's aiming for? There was another part of report that I found interesting which had to do with the fact that there will be this is a quote, there will be likely be demand for greater tolerance to support domestic security driven in part by the threat of terrorism the threat posed by international elicit, drug, traffic, and human trafficking, and the threat to infrastructure, and for what that means to me is he saying because of these as symmetrical threats, we need intelligence more than ever, right? We need to be watching our own backyard dish into everyone else's backyard because we need to be able to tell the good guys from the bad guys. He does mention adequate protection for civil liberties and privacy. You know, I know that you is a more libertarian type also agree that that needs to be done. But what he's saying? I feel like is that we we need to be able to know we can trust the intelligence community. Well, I think that we have reached the point though, that's much more dangerous than that. We have somebody who at the top of the of the intelligence communities chain doesn't trust them. And he doesn't trust them because he doesn't like the truth that they tell him. And so. The way our intelligence system in this country is organized and has been for a long time, and I think generally correctly. So is that it is fairly narrow as to who receives the most sensitive information. Those are the things that that are actionable national intelligence items, and Donald Trump is overtly hostile to many of the things he's told because they don't fit the world view that he wishes they did they don't, you know, say you're the greatest tallest handsome. Sexiest man in America and bladder. Putin is your good friend who wants to make a good trade deal with you. They say he disrupted our election. He's attempting to break our society, he's engaged in military operations other than war right now against our country. He's engaged in an aggressive intelligence warfare program against our country. Trump is one here that it is going to believe that. And so, unfortunately, it's hard for the denied to come out and say, hey, America. Here's all this data. We have because it blows up sore. Methods. We can't do that. But you know by trying to start to outline those threats and turn to educate the public little bit. I think it's probably the right thing to do. But it's a difficult thing. When you've got somebody at the top who is also trying to reduce trust in the intelligence community by the public. You know, I've just sitting here listening to you. And I think this is all right. And I just want to ask you for some shooting lessons and go buy shelf, stable foods. I can't guns. Honestly, like, I, you know, the mid terms I think gave a lot of us a kind of sugar high. You know, we won and truth will out, and you know, things are the balance of power is on its way to being restored in this shutdown. Has just reminded me just how precarious our whole society is. I mean, I hate to put it that starkly. But there's no there's no frozen, and you know, people laugh about it and show that's bullshit. That phrase is no country is more than three meals away from a revolution. It just takes the right catalyst. And I don't think we're at that point. But I will say the fragility of our system. Has increased the the brittleness of our system has increased because Donald Trump has broken all these norms and broken all these standards and essentially governed as authoritarianism statist, and folks are terrified that the world is going to collapse around them, and he Stokes that every day, and these eight hundred thousand people that are out there, you know, which when you do the math, it's basically about two million individuals affected when you count families independence, those two million people out there are the first six into the shutdown, but not the last it's going to get a lot worse for other people. And I do think we're going to end up in a fairly unstable political climate if this goes on, but I, but I seriously believe there are some inflection points here where he can't sustain this game. As long as the Democrats who have every card in the deck. The Democrats have every single. Card in the deck. If they don't break, they will get this thing done, we will reopen the government. The only source of weakness here is the Democrats who crave political death all the time. Well, who also have been made I will say as a more left word person on the scale in. I'm no moderate democrat is that this fetichism nation of being a moderate has really done a number on some Democrats Republicans for some reason or like immune to this idea were devoted voted out of government. But there are some Democrats who just love the idea of bipartisanship so much. I think that they are they're playing this false equivalency game with themselves where they think that striking a deal will be some kind of signal that they're the rational ones they're out of their goddamn Mino, Nancy. Plus, he's too smart for that. I will say I think she is too smart for that. We've talked about Nancy Pelosi before and about how Republicans have used her as this foil for a long time. But she is playing. Her cards, very well. So far, I think the decision by Pelosi to tell the president. Now, you can't come and give speech here until we reopen. The government look, she's the speaker of Coequal branch of government and Republicans had become accustomed to viewing the house of representatives as a branch a subsidiary of the Trump organization. So it surprising for some people that she's holding her ground than sending the line here. But she really needs to if the Democrats break him on this if they break him, if they break the shutdown, and he doesn't get a wall out of it. It has enormous political repercussions for him in twenty twenty because that's the primary promise of his campaign, and I can tell you this empirically because in the spring of seventeen we did a survey for corporate client, and they wanted to know little bit like how Trump was going to affect their their marketplace and everything else, and we asked the question, what's the major promise of the Trump campaign? And we did it two ways we gave them a stack. Question with three make America. Great again, build the wall, tough negotiator something like that. And we also asked a split sample of that with an open ended question. So both in the in the regular question, you know, ABC build the wall was by far he was seventy one percents that that was the key promise that Trump campaign on the verbatim in the open ended question ninety percent of it was build the wall. He's going to build the wall make Mexico pay for it. Build the wall. Build the wall, build the wall, build the wall, if the Democrats give him one fucking inch of wall one ounce of concrete, they lose they lose because he goes out there, and he swings. His dick around for the whole twenty twenty goes, I promise you I'd beat them. And we'd build the wall. And we're building the wall. When be the first time that Trump convinced someone that an inch was much larger than it seemed. Yeah, as I like to joke, you can imagine Trump saying, oh that's nine inches. Your ruler must be wrong. You know, sorry shouldn't laugh too much to mock small penis presidents. I really would like to. And what I was also going to point out is that this is also you could argue a dry run for impeachment. It is very much a dry run. For impeachment is very much focused moment where you have to maintain and disciplined the caucus and move them forward appropriately we have to prevent the idea the false idea that you're negotiating with somebody who is in any way going to display. Good faith. I mean when this first emerged this whole, oh, we'll we'll try to the wall for temporary three or DACA. Well, remember Kirstin Nielsen and Stephen Miller run homeland security. Does anybody think that's a good deal? I mean, that's the Hannibal Lecter daycare center. There's no good outcome from trusting these people. They are fundamentally untrustworthy they're acting in bad faith at all times. They are motivated by evil. And so when you when you have people that you absolutely understand when you. Understand how they behaved over the last two years. You should recognize that negotiating with them. And thinking that they're going to be part of the solution is absolutely ludicrous. I mean, they're just I mean, you've said it like just I've been thinking about my memoir of the time. Just calling it bad faith. I mean because it works on a lot of different levels. Right. I mean, there's the fact that again evangelical refuse to split from this guy. No matter he can't there's literally nothing he can do. Listen, I if he declared that he's a wiccan and that the White House would now be serving hot and cold running baby. They would still say, well, you know, now at least it's not the we thought those high tone fancy Manhattan elites looking down their nose at us. And then there is the more, you know, an end there's the kind of bad faith. We usually talk about which is like he just doesn't. None of it means anything. It takes them. Depress. We're gonna take a quick break and be right back. I have some serious questions for you. Robin Hood is an investing after let you buy and sell stocks EFT's options and cryptos all commission free.

Most desks chairs that you might be familiar with lock the body into a ninety degree angle when it comes to help your posture. However, there is no such thing. As the perfect position. We weren't meant to stand all day or to sit all day, and we definitely weren't meant to sit at a ninety degree angle on a stiff chair behind a desk. Our bodies were designed to move. And so while fully Jarvis standing desk is the best review desk in the world. It is just the foundation of a healthier way to work. Fully standing, desks and collection of active chairs give you the freedom to move stretch. And being a healthier more comfortable position that works for your body's unique and changing needs throughout the day. Fully careful selection of active sitting chairs, which I'm going to briefly pros until that is there really more kind of stools. They either have rockers on the bottom or kind of like a pedestal thing that moves around they are much better looking in an office, and you may have had people sitting on like exercise balls or yoga balls, which works great. I'm sure. Sure. But you know, it looks a little weird an office. My husband actually has both the standing desk and the active stool, he loves them both has a bad back. So he can offer that recommendation, and I actually also really like the standing desk as well. Although I do less work at it. And he does so their entire collection of chairs supports a healthier posture. That aligns your spine opens up your hips engages or core improve circulation, you'll feel relief immediately in your body and your back. We'll thank you it did they smarter healthier way to work. I'm more balanced human way to work to get your body. Moving in your workspace. Go to fully dot com slash friends that F U L L Y dot com slash friends. Fully desks chairs and things to keep you moving. Is weirdly invigorating as it is to kind of talk about our culture of being on the precipice of you know, dystopia if not already falling towards it. There is a part of me that wants to ask you very sincerely like what the fuck should. We do you know 'cause I have some ideas. But I'm curious what you think like you, and I've talked about personal coping strategies, you know, faith and puppies. I think would be the shorthand faith family and puppies, good strategy, in general cats are also acceptable. What are you thinking multi pet species family, yet cats I like to call it being by petrol? But I know that there are people who if you and I are disenchanted and feeling antsy. You know, I mean people who don't have megaphones in don't have people that they can call and complain to probably feeling really, really powerless. What do you think? Well, I think that you and I have lived in businesses in in both media, and politics, and sort of the intersection of those spaces for a long time where the adrenal stimulation is pretty constant it. We're always moving to the next crisis. There's another thing happening. We're thinking about stuff all the time. That's that's stressful. Most people had the luxury in American politics of not spending every waking minute with their I on the news. And didn't have that sense that that something excess central is lurking every day, and that, you know, the president could wake up in the morning and tweet something in new Belgium. None of this stuff affected. Ordinary Americans in any great degree really since the Vietnam war. It's really the closest parallel. I think we can draw to something that just obsessed and rendered society into camps and factions and most. Folks, have lost one particular thread. They think it's all gone. They think that Trump has won in the end, and they forgotten that we have to real secret weapons in this country. One is that the constitution and the law still exist. They may be stressed and strained, but they still exist. They still have enormous power. They still have an ability to keep our institutions intact and to steer us pass. This current crisis. Not easily not without some metaphorical. And hopefully, not, but you know, but physical bloodshed and the second secret weapon, we have is that we're actually a pretty resilient country. We have been strained before. We've been strained by things like Watergate and Iran-Contra economically broken though. So but people feel broken right now, they feel scared. That's a feature of Trumpism the he wants their fear when I try to do myself, and what I offer to other people if it in you, and I probably I think we said this four, but the other key in terms of managing her, anxiety and dispelling your sense of powerlessness is community. I personally would advocate any kind of March any kind of, you know, community building activity like you can do a special. The one that puts you with people that don't necessarily look like you were think like you whether that's going ahead and volunteering at a soup kitchen or food pantry right now. Whether that is being a part of a protest that may not be on this specific issue, but is related to it. I think the more that you can reach out beyond your own internal fear. The better chance we have as a country. Will you know, an open up on something, you know, in fifteen when I decided I can't stand for this. I can't give into this bullshit. I made a decision in two thousand fifteen that I knew would cost me a lot of money a lot of money. If I stayed quiet. I shut up. I could've you know. Joined the throngs of other consultants in milk. These people dry. And couldn't do it. And I had about a year of like tremendous exciting. Like, I've cut like a zero off my income. This is bad. This is not smart. This is oh my God. What am I going to do how am I going to fix this? And at some point, I just had this nearly spiritual moment where I just basically said, you know, what it's going to work itself out, and I have to do this. I have to let it work itself out doing the right thing sucks. Sometimes it's hard. But I I feel so vindicated by the decision in the long term that that fear. You know that fear that I'd taken a thirty year career in politics, and thrown it away transformed itself into the sense of empowerment once you stop letting him make you scared. Once you start letting his people make you scared, and I think a lot of folks are scared of what they see of his people at these rallies. And he's alright assholes. They're scared that these people are on. This edge all the time, and they'll defend the maximum leader up to and including violence once you stop being scared of them and stop letting the threat whether it's a big threat about, you know, your your physical safety, or it's the sort of wider threat about I'm gonna wreck the country you love once you get over that fear and start engaging in action and start engaging in advocacy, and there's a million different ways to do this. You're absolutely right. You know, some of it's volunteering some of its registering to vote some of its running for office, some of its speaking out writing talking praying there's a million avenues to empower yourself in the face of authoritarianism, forty Democrats took seats in the in the US house of representatives and took power back from Donald Trump. He has partly only the power we give him. Yes. This other those things are true. You know, there is strength and safety in numbers and the more. People. You can connect yourself to and again, I would stress the more people who aren't necessarily like you mean by that. I mean, people have different colors, different faiths, different income levels. You know, because the pain he's inflicted runs across a lot of different categories. I think that forbid or for worse Trump has given this country a lesson. An intersection -ality, you know, which used to be like a academic buzzword. Now some way that we kind of explained the different ways that we're connected and the different ways that we feel this abuse of power. So I would say like whether it's a soup kitchen or women's shelter. Whether it's an LGBTQ, we're going to say tion or registering people to vote or yes a shelter for pets too. Sure. Anything that gets going to connect? You is going to be a way of fighting back. And you know, it's funny. I have a conversation last night, in fact, with a Republican who said to me goes, I don't know what to do I'm terrified, you know, he does not support Trump. But he's like if I say anything publicly, I'm gonna lose. Lose you know, any influence. I have I said, then don't be public go in and corrode them from within go in and work from the inside present alternative viewpoints. Slowly steadily. Surely, maybe it's going to work. Maybe it's not gonna work. But you'll know you're doing something that's inside your boundaries that you can do. You'll know you're doing something that even if you have all these other obligations to to maintain your public side, you're doing something that is trying to get us back to the party that we joined, you know, yea so many years ago, and it's difficult. It really is. It's very it's very problematic for people to to take public step even people who oppose him often, though. Yeah. I don't want to be out there and put myself in front of these crazy people, and they rely on that part of the part of the the the Trump trolling operation. Both foreign domestic is to try to suppress voices who speak out over social media against Trump. So. We're at a situation where you know, people have a number of options. But it just takes that that first step of courage to get there. I would say like I that says that sound like the bravest way to use your power, this friend of yours. I will admit that. Sometimes you have to use your inside voice in order to discover your outside voice. This is a person who could be very influential in subtle ways. And you know, you have to treat it as an intelligence operation in some ways. You know, you're putting you're putting people who are going to be influenced points down the line because without anybody in there. It's just going to be a complete vacuum. I'm sort of rolling my eyes at committee to save America stuff. But but you have to start somewhere. That's where I'm going to decide to just kinda do you kind of have to start somewhere. You got, you know, small victories add up that is also true. So we're getting to the end of our time. I have a question that I've been afraid to ask you. Yes. Which is. So that piece on how you voted in Florida. It's in my book. It's in the paperback. It's coming out the twenty four hours. So how did you vote in Florida are the vote a straight Republican ticket? Okay. That's good. To know. You're gonna make people by the book come on. Don't don't talk your. I'm going to make people get out and buy the book, everything Trump touches dies available February twenty four th in paperback. You added that zero back onto your income? Didn't you? You're not going to tell you. Time. We'll see this the phrase New York Times number one bestseller will never get old. So you're you're sincerely not gonna tell me at grand by the buck, though. It's going to be in the book. Okay, fine. I'm trying to think if there's anything else we should talk about before. I say goodbye don't be a stranger. Don't you be a stranger either? Okay. Well, I think we tried to just type the pilot to my podcast. I'm invite you to be a guest on my podcast when we get this thing booted up, we'll be we can trade. Maybe we can do. We'll do a crossover pot or something. I love it. All right. It is always good to talk to you as you will be in my thoughts and prayers to my dear. Talk to you soon. And that is it for this week. If you're listening to this right now, you have either put your phone to the side while you're washing dishes, and therefore are captive to me and cannot festival or you are a super fan, and I have something to say to super fans. I always get some pushback after a Rick episode. There are people who I think are understandably upset by the amount of time. I give to someone who has worked fairly sincerely. And for a long time against the values that I claim to hold and to that I can only give myself the excuse that I kind of can talk about with Rick towards the end that conversation, which is that you have to start somewhere, and Rick is a personal friend, and I've seen him grow and change and our conversations I feel like help me as well as help him. It is good to talk to people who are different than you for the most part when I say things like that. I mean people who are of a different race or sexual orientation, gender identification. People who are marginalized and not center. Heard. But also, it's good to talk to people who make you think about what you believe. Even if what happens is, you just realizing really do believe it in any case that is it for the show you'll be back next week with a different guest and remember, please until then take care.
