How can I find companies to sponsor my podcast?
"Hi, Chris this is rod from Omaha. And I've been listening to this show for over a year. Thanks for the helpful content. Planning to start a podcast and I want to do it seriously but maybe not professionally, but I want to plan well, then do everything I can to recruit inactive audience that will be attractive to sponsors. But what do I need to know in? How do I find those sponsors do I find them in advance or only after the audiences more established fact? Rogge what's up? Thank you so much for listening. Thanks for the question and I am excited about your podcast. Really glad to know that you're planning to take it seriously. You know not everything has to be professionally as you said, but to take it seriously, I think that is admirable. So let's talk a bit about sponsorship. Your question specifically is, what do you need to know? How do you find the sponsors? Do you find them in advance or later? So on that last point if it's important to have sponsors When the show launches most likely, you'll need to partner with a podcast network or distributor who will license and distribute your show. Now, this is changing by the month because I realized the follow up question is okay who are those people? Where do I find them while it's changing by the month? It's a very fast moving industry but a few well-known podcast networks at the moment include wondering Pushkin Industries, and cadence thirteen where side-hustle school has hosted. Now, in recent times, streaming services like spotify have also gotten in the game by producing and distributing their own podcast as well. Now, I just named a few of the bigger ones there, but there's also a lot of others as well. Assuming. You aren't going through a company like that, which is kind of like working with a traditional publisher for your book like there are pros and cons to it. So assuming you're not doing that, then you'll really need to focus more on building up your subscriber base before sponsors will be interested. And then once audience established. That's when you want to start looking for the sponsors a great place to start. Once you have a good number of downloads let's say five to ten thousand per episode more is Mid Roll. She can look at mid roll dot com they produce podcast of their own, but also sell ads on a commission basis for lots of other podcasts and as the other companies I mentioned mid roll is not the only option. So when you search fine podcast sponsors in Google or wherever you might find several other networks that do the same thing. Now lastly, in addition to those networks because let's say you're starting off and podcast is going well but you don't have really big numbers while you can still approach brands directly if there's companies that might be a good fit or you can invite them to approach you directly. So how do you do that? Well on your podcast website which you should have a website by the way include a prominent page called sponsor INFO or sponsor this podcast something like that. And I think if you don't have a ton of downloads, this is a good entry point because you can try to sell some other unique characteristic about your podcast. For example, it might be a small tight knit community that isn't ever going to have a huge listenership in terms of just the raw numbers, but this community is very loyal and it's in need of services that a sponsor could provide. So I've known a lot of smaller podcasters who have had. The same sponsor is often for years who have just really believed in in the podcast and they have kind of forced this good relationship between. The company, the PODCAST, her and the audience, and all without going through a network, which, of course, by nature and network is a middleman and there's commission involved and all that kind of stuff. So if you different options there, but I think overall whatever you do. The most important thing is building an audience like focus always on your audience focus on what can I do to create a great podcast? What can I do to provide valuable helpful content because that is the foundation for any relationship whether you're trying to work with a network trying to get your ad sold by distributor or trying to connect sponsors directly focused on your audience.

Brad Pitt's New Boo
"Hi guys tonight, burning questions did a-rod pays off Jaylo before the Super Bowl. Towel annoyed Lena that rod supposedly dating off. Could you marry into this family? Let's get started. Welcome to. We miss you guys. Hi, Nina High Hunter. Lo. Look. Very, stealth Meena for a second I was just. Doing the show today and then I realized bright you couldn't even see me right to him. Oh Yeah. Yeah. WanNa tone. Funny to to show that. SETINA. Tone that. John told. US All right. We all know A. Rod, a super supportive of Jay Lau, but his strategy to get Jennifer ready for her big super bowl performances. Kind of backfired. They were on Barstool sports the Corp and revealed Alex's mistake. We went to the gym that morning and I was driving her and she was talking to me I was ignoring her I was like I'm not getting the way of anything is your day. I'm focused. We'll talk Monday and she. Talked to me. Like. Zone I'm just like I'm trying not to get away. Okay annoying or sweet. Well, I think like in situations like this like this is how I feel like whenever I would get into an argument with like a boyfriend they would let me let you cool off I want you to go off and then I'll come back and I hate that I hate the cooling off period like a mad. That's when I want you to come and try to make it better. I don't want to come in and talk to don't go silent for a day like so she probably wanted him to be comforting and be they're supportive not to. Give her the silent treatment. That's the opposite of ones, right? Right. I know it's already it's already clear that you and I are perfect mattress for each other. But this proves that even more because I hate the silent treatment both ways given it and I hate getting in fact, if someone's mad at me, I literally need to solve the situation or at least absolve myself from guilt immediately, and then let's go about our day I hate the silent treatment. I hate it too. But to be fair to be for I, don't think he was trying to give her the silent treatment i. do understand what he was saying like look it was a very big day for her. She had a lot of things to. And he didn't really want to be in the way and wanted to give her her space to be in zone but I think what you know. Right exactly getting into that and then. They think that it's the same thing like he he attacks at how he would attack. Going to play for a big game but I, feel like you know she's a performer. So it's different, right? It's also he could have. Just, not been there at all. That's why becomes more distracting if somebody's trying to go out of their way to ignore you when that's not something that you guys talked about. So next next super. Woke me. Yeah. Next time this ask a woman what she needs and then got how that. You'll know. Tonight's other big story off. You're not gonNA believe Brad Pitt has been spotted with model i. don't even know how we have put this together but. Standby while butcher her name except I won't. It's Nicole. petrosky. But. You're. Spinning. It's Petrosky. Okra. Right. Thank you. She's twenty seven. And he's fifty six okay. Reports claims. She's his new girlfriend and they're saying at his sixty seven million dollar state in the south of France. Remember France. Love it. Do we like Brad with a model? Yeah I like the the thing that I find funny is he's been hanging out with Leila Lot and you know that those conversations Leo the whole time was like I'm telling you. Go for someone in her twenties. It's great like he's sold Brad on this because I don't feel like he would have done. It had Leo not Ben I'd not been doing claymation they're doing in his garage every single night. Also. He's never done this before rarely he's always dated actresses that have been sort of like within his like on the same level and who have been relatively close in age. So the fact that he he'd Busta Leo I lay. On disappointed in Brad. Brad is like more of a deeper actor like not very surface or materialistic like you know he's always been kind of associated with being a humanitarian. So I expected a little different move from him. You know what I mean I expected him to show up with the woman who might be a host of a late night show you know possibly a black woman. You know possibly you know someone on the show nightly. That's what I was hoping

What will say is that Tom Without for the That'd be the kick ass we h that we have that fully through Bong on Bitcoin. It does a little bit more interpretation trip in trepidation. It adds a little bit more. More question mark around the validity of that continued upside. In the short-term anyway. So I'm keeping an audit it's thousand, seven, twenty eight right now. It's down point three percent on today Theorem had a good dia city pumped up full point three, five percent with era, and now we're above full hundred, a locket, a lock it now I said yesterday that I'd be looking for crystals back in a four hundred dollars you don't have the chops structured the minute. To really warrant. Any tried to be honest. It's look at it looks fawn the Diet looks fondly to date but could you know we could see a little low high?

It's quite good enough to to still sitting above two hundred. Katana down percents today it was up a little bit yesterday point. So at one point, non not much really taken either to be honest with you some was sitting at twelve point two cents on the wake leads coming into the rod area. Until good mood yesterday, it's added bounce. What would we get? So we had a high of twenty, two, hundred, ninety, six I ended up closing at twenty, two, fifty, nine up three point three, seven point. One of the percents I talk to you right now a twenty miles thirty nine. Put. Three.

Wayne Carini from 'Chasing Classic Cars' and F40 Motorsports
"This is Robert Ross with another episode of cars that matter and today my guest is Wayne Carini who everybody knows Wayne Wayne's the host of chasing classic cars and incredibly Popular Program about finding gyms in the rough Wayne's also owner of f Forty Motor Sports Portland Connecticut I'm going to call that as day job and what a job it is Wayne Welcome to the program during us to be with. Obviously we're talking coast to coast I'm here in Los Angeles, and you're on the eastern side of the US and were doing this by way of Zoom. So it's not in the studio, but it allows some long distance conversation really in much the same way that you probably deal with. So many of the collectors nowadays things have certainly changed for all of us in the way that we communicate and weighed. The options are being held virtual car shows everything's changed slightly only. It's just for short periods. We'll talk about some of those things both the short-term effects maybe some of the long term positive benefits that come from this, it's hard to imagine there are any, but they're actually might be but instead of going forward in time, let's go back in time for a second. Let me just ask you the obvious. Question a lifetime love affair with cars, full classics, postwar sports, and racing cars, and probably even some modern collectibles. How did this car fixation begin when I was born into it? My father was founder the model a restorers club America back in nineteen fifty one year I was born cars were basically in our family from the beginning and then my dad restored cars for a living whether it was Duesenberg? Packard? As or buicks whatever they were my cousin built hot rods in a lean to next to my father's shop, and then a mile up the road was candy pools sports car shop where they had about every type sports car in the World Men Candy Pool is very famous race car drivers. So there was race cars, Ferraris Maserati. Oscars every type of car. That was rare stuff back then and I think that's how I got my ashes for everything to do with automobiles was brought up on every type of automobile. That's quite a broad swath. You Talk About Your Dad restoring everything from model as to Duisenburg's there couldn't be a wider gulf between those two and it's interesting. You mentioned that let's drill down into. That for just a second Wayne I often wonder the model a was such a ubiquitous machine, obviously the model t and then the model put Henry Ford on the map with a little company we call the Blue Oval but all the guys that actually treasure those cars and restore them and kept him alive for so many decades when they were well past. Their prime. It's very rare to see those cars any longer they sorta seems almost evaporated off the surface the earth they've become pretty popular again though in that era forcible way to get into the hobby and you could basically model for today from a catalog. So because of the ease of getting a apart the east of the restoration and the fun factor. With the driving aspect of it, I mean, these cars are a Lotta Fun to drive. Easy on reasonably priced. So we see model as actually their value and increasing summer bar. That's a great harbinger of things to come then because they really were sort of the cornerstone of the collector hobby back before guys can afford their full classics and all the fancy stuff from Europe. I starting going to Hershey with my dad and nine hundred, fifty, seven was six years old I think her she started either in fifty five, hundred, fifty, six does either liver fear second year, and then probably the third year I was there it became part. Of Our family, my dad created the model, a restorers club. He just come out of service in flight forty, eight and gentleman brought him a model a Ford to do some paint work on any restored to perfection for the gentleman brought it to local car show nine, hundred fifty and they wouldn't let him show it because they said that's just some old used car as nothing special and he got upset about that and went home and created the model, every stores America which thousands of people all over the world still supporting that club.

Good Way and last week trading losses pretty slow until about fraud I. GotTa be honest. I liked there wasn't that many opportunities fraud I came through though and I'll tell you what it was a the Ripa might a good good wedge out of that. What are we get? Well for me I got lend, which is I I a lend. In what did I get? That is a twelve hour Kreider. Anyway, I've locked in profits about full four, five to one, which is nice. I also put a coal in my community. Now, coal payables I wanna make that very clear I'm like dude, just up -tunities and you make decisions based on your understanding of those strategies just checklist right? So anyone who's in that grape might slack community. What they do is they get some they get access to May showing them opportunities die make their mind up very rarely to attain exactly what ongoing sometimes. It's usually slip noble non-intention. They they took that try let me just tell you the rewards refresher upper upper chine. God knows where does like couldn't care less to be absolutely honest with you after China let's talk about what it did. Currently it's what's the rule would risk their three point six, two full. I was up around that sort of six to one. But still prophets locked in stops and moved another profitable tried the other one. I think I spoke to you guys about this. I definitely put on free content on Youtube was a day cradle on Bonnets It's also hit one to one. Another profit. So it was like Bang, Bang Bang Bang profit profit profit profit just smacked him quickly on fraud. I. Went fishing, it's been a cracker of awake. All happening at the end that's why I've got to be patients. So you go to show need to look at tight and tried to will go tight the good ones now speaking to bitcoin let's go and have a little chat about what's going on there because las wait we did close. We closed up two percent. We close the wake at eleven thousand, nine, twenty, six. What are they knauss above twelve economy everything. If we saw pulled out, he would be in panic mode. Absolutely no, you know pull by ten grand for little cradle. I'm not weekly would be absolutely superb. The daily right now is consoled consolidation with Jai Alai's the I highlight was at quick pump. Sorry. Quick dump off the run up towards twelve. Twelve. We came off that that big had ten, thousand, six, fifty then got another high alert is coming. That was on the of August now that low is eleven thousand, one, hundred, twenty, six, we've jumped a better grind or so. What we've got is we also has law harsh potentially. So we are building we're consolidating starting taught not the volatility of each of these daily candles on Bitcoin has eased. If we look at it from Las Ford is we had at one point six. Percent That's Today's down point two, three days three point, seven up point full yesterday a bad loss way closer the volatility has started to slow down a little bit and that's why the opportunities been coming out familiar with my trading. So with that slowdown of. Volatility and with the mock console adding a little bit, we could say they. Move Higher if it breaks high if it moves lovable could see that weekly pool back. It's just you know it's one of those times we go the way it does look we'll bullish and Barreto that boss it's about being patient knowing what you're looking for reading the market needs to be read and just taking Tom you know eleven thousand forty forty-five right now down point seven tonight. A theory in Las, week and other great wake up eleven percent. It's pretty extended guys. It's had a great run but this crypto. So extension, Smith mentioned not even know what that means. But a daily divergent stay Look it's in Trevor Divergence is very extended on the weekly on Kane. On the theory moving I've also hold a wedge it's a four, twenty, eight, I taint since down one point four percent tonight will be just hanging out see what goes on from here. Yesterday's candle did close a bullish point two percent, but it's the projection of those lawyers, which is right around four eleven that region. So we'll have to wait and see if he break the high of yesterday's candle today them. Yes there really leg up another notch. Excel pay thirty cents on the dangling. It hits thirty point eight, which is now three tests over resistance league actually draw flat level in. A could be bitcoin breakout for lighter with a little basic they're out to get through. was saying here in exile as a potential trades around that thirty point nine sent mock white and see what goes on the weekly lost weight did it'll get moved was up five point nine, percent coal six percent. Of course, it has had a pretty good run of life will have to wait and see what goes on here but some.

Take care of their bodies and take care of that little ticker that he gives us Insider body lip. So hopefully you know we'll get some good results from it. Would you look back at your career baseball and all the things All things you did. I one thing that's vivid for me as I said I'm fifty years old so I was eight years old. Nineteen seventy eight all star game and I remember it. I don't remember where it was played. The only thing I remember I remember. I was such a big baseball fan. The All Star game back then especially with such a big deal and that was the year after you'd hit three eighty eight and There were a lot of people hopeful that you'd become the first since Williams to hit four hundred and I remember that game. What was it two triples and two singles in the All Star game? You know it's funny. I two triples and I'm the second one I was sliding into third base of Pete Rose Screen third base and he started yelling. You know. That's that's that's a record. No one has ever done that before he would know he would tell you know so. I got up but he says you know. Congratulations no one has ever done. What yesterday so Pete knows about in baseball? Allow us don't know you know but It was a great day for me. Seventy seven was a big year for you the year before that you know in in the middle of What I guess I would call your heyday. You're the height of your powers No WanNa get three eighty eight since Ted Williams In late fifties. No-one hit four hundred since Williams in nineteen forty one. What was it like being locked in like that that year? You know it was a very uncanny here for me. It just seems that everything I hit found a whole. And what's crazy is that. When I was at the plate I would see the the infielders middle infielders shift a little bit and then I hit the ball. Maybe you know two feet from where they were claim that it would have been an out but it went through for basis so It was just crazy. The baseball seem like it was a a beach ball. Then it seemed like just floating up there and say hit me. Hit Me hit me. It'd be where he wants you. You know so Great great season for me. Now I know you know these numbers ride but I'm going to read them for the benefit of our listeners. You want your I batting title in Sixty Nine when you were twenty three three thirty two then you won the batting title seventy two three eighteen year career. Three Twenty eight hitter in an era when there was a lot of diminished offensive production. It was really a pitcher's era. You won batting titles hitting three thirty two three eighteen three fifty three sixty four three fifty nine three eighty eight and three thirty three. You're an all star eighteen seasons in a row I don't know what the question is right and they just it just still. I still marvel at at what you achieved one of the things when I think about your career is the remarkable bat control And what you could do with both With a hand around the barrel of the Bat. Why can't anyone bunt anymore rod? They really don't try you know and it's so frustrating to To See guys that have speed that could get on base easily Especially with the shift at saw that they're doing today and they don't even attempt. Everyone wants a home because they figure or they saw that or think that that's where they're gonNa make make the big bucks but you know to me. I I am. I frustrated with the game today because of that and we were on it and spring training every single day and then when the game starts they forget about it. All they think about is let me see. How far can it? The next one loss to write about You Difficult Childhood and your father In this book as I said You were born in Panama. Nineteen forty five But you raise mostly New York and you went to George. Washington High School in Washington Heights. Same High School that produced Manny Ramirez. Two pretty good ball players. How would you describe your childhood It was tough because I was a very sick kid you know. I had rheumatic fever when I was growing up and I I almost died So my mom treated me With kid gloves you know. My Dad thought that I should be more of a man you know. And so we didn't have a good relationship and You know he drank a lot and I suffer the consequences. My and I suffer the consequences when he came home. But one thing that I had that kept me safe was baseball and my mom. Encourage me to play. You know she says you know keep keep going keep playing in good things are GonNa happen and I told her I said mom all I WANNA do is play front of fifty thousand people because listening to the radio. I couldn't believe that there were that many people in the stands Until I found out you know differently but baseball save me. You know I almost killed my dad When he came home one night he was really drunk and I was about twelve years old and he passed out on the bedroom. I said here's my checks and then my mom came running and she says don't forget baseball and I stopped. I was just tired of abuse. And my mom being abused Rod. What what do you remember? I mean you growing up in New York. It's it's the fifty s and you've got Willie mays playing for the giants at the Polo grounds. Just a couple of miles from where you're grown up you got mickey mantle in the Bronx again just over the river You've got all those great players. The dodgers out there. What do you remember about Being a fan as a kid of New York baseball or you know it's crazy. I had never gone into Yankee Stadium. Never went into the Polo grounds and I played right outside of Anki stays stadium on Kuhn's field right there by the bridge. Yeah right right at bridge hit some balls topic preach but I used to here to the roar of the crowd I used to say to myself. You know maybe one day I'll be playing and and disgrace and and the House that Ruth built and as a kid you know you just you dream you wander and I was fortunate enough to To realize my dream. When did you know that you had not an ordinary but an extraordinary talent for the game? Well you know every year players would ask you know what they're gonNa do that set goals and you know sometimes those gold member realized and all I ask for was God to give me good health. I was GonNa do good things for them. And that's that's all I ever thought about. I was not playing for myself. I was playing for the body and he's took me to a great a great career. I thanked him every day. And I still do for speaking with Rod Crew. The baseball great or the greatest ever play the game second baseman first baseman eighteen time. I've got a right eighteen.

"But he was still governor. The judge confiscated his passport to keep him from fleeing the country but they couldn't confiscate his gubernatorial powers before the end of the day. Rod was out on forty five hundred dollars bail and free to keep governing as a final middle finger to his critics. Blagojevich decided to make an appointment even as he faced federal charges one of his defense attorneys threatened to resign from his defense team. If Rod appointed anybody he looked like he wasn't taking the criminal trial seriously. Governor Sunshine didn't have time to listen to anyone's negativities on December thirtieth. He appointed Roland Bursts of former Illinois attorney general and prominent African American politician. It was widely believed that burress was deserving of higher office and that the Senate seat vacated by Obama should go to a black politician. This was the kind of pick. An honest governor would have made someone qualified and capable as well as popular who was long overdue and deserving of a promotion. This was bloggers last laugh if the Illinois State Senate refused to confirm burress. They'd be shutting talented black politician out of a seat. He's earned if they confirmed him. They'd be tainting themselves by doing the bidding of a governor. They plan to impeach. He had them in a pickle the Illinois Senate chose to confirm Burruss then on January. Ninth two thousand nine. They impeach Rod Blagojevich on a vote of one hundred fourteen to one on January twenty ninth. The legislature again voted nearly unanimously to remove blog. Oh from office and bar him from ever holding office in Illinois again. In April of two thousand nine the grand jury returned indictments against blog on nineteen charges. The indictment was revised in February of two thousand ten to add more charges bringing the total to twenty four. His trial was an absolute media circus. The defense attorneys fought bravely arguing that their client was not personally culpable for Illinois's political culture of corruption importantly. They refused to allow the governor to testify in his own defense. His shameless personality wasn't going to play well on the stand. His defense team did cast enough doubt to lead to a hung jury on August seventeenth. Two thousand ten. The judge declared a mistrial because jurors could not agree on a decision regarding twenty three of the twenty four charges prosecutors were forced to retry the former governor while he awaited re-trial. Lago seemed not to take situation seriously. Rather than hone his defense he sold autographs for fifty bucks the second trial which commenced in April of two thousand eleven. Went much better for the prosecution. This time Rod testified. The jury got an earful of his side of the story. On June twenty-seventh Rod Blagojevich was found. Guilty on seventeen of the twenty charges.

"Usually the proverbial October surprise a scandal revealed right before an election kills a contenders chances. But even with the FBI openly investigating him in a close confident indicted on criminal charges. Rod Somehow won reelection by ten points in hindsight that's probably because he massively outspent his Republican opponent by twenty one million dollars. Corruption indeed pays the campaign bills. No matter what Rod Blagojevich did his personal charisma and deep connections around Chicago simply outweighed the corruption. His ironic crookedness seemed to appeal to fans it fed into the rock and roll persona eight cultivated since boyhood in December of two thousand seven federal. Investigators indicted another insider Chris Kelly. They didn't manage to get him on fraud itself but it charge of tax evasion for the one million dollars of income connected with the Blagojevich campaign would do as they say. It's not the crime that gets you but the cover up. Kelly got away with taking kickbacks but the irs wasn't going to let him fail to pay taxes on them through two thousand seven and two thousand eight. As Barack Obama began his historic presidential campaign. It seemed like the FBI was never going to get anything. Concrete on governor himself the closest thing they got to a smoking gun at least for a while was a document in which Blagojevich boasted about rewarding supporters campaign contributions with quote contracts legal work and investment banking. It wasn't enough evidence to file charges so the FBI just released it to the public hoping it would prompt whistle blowers to come forward unexpectedly the FBI's actions did way on the state legislature even though blog oh was still popular with his own base the Illinois State House and Senate were tired of his corrupt antics. They started discussing impeachment. Blagojevich was publicly defiant privately though he was desperate for an exit ramp out of the governorship lest he ended up in prison. Like his predecessors he thought Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat might be just the loophole by early fall. In two thousand eight Obama was neck and neck for the presidency as governor it would fall to rod to appoint his replacement in the United States. Senate Rod saw two promising options. His first preference was for Obama's team to pick a replacement and in exchange for Begovic appointing their preferred choice. They'd give blog a Primo job at the federal level. He told friends that he'd like to be either secretary of health. And Human Services or ambassador to India. The second option which rod like less was just to appoint himself to the Senate running a campaign while under FBI investigation wasn't ideal but it would get him out of the governorship without the embarrassment of impeachment or arrest. There was one big problem with that plan the FBI was still wiretapping him. Rod should have guessed based on the arrests of his key advisors that his own phones were bugged but governor sunshine had an ego the size of Texas. It never even occurred to him that the FBI would have the audacity to tap his personal phone lines. When agents working the case realized Rod was trying to sell a Senate seat. They were dumbfounded. They knew the governor of Illinois was crooked but they had no idea he was this ignorant or reckless in November of two thousand. Eight Barack Obama won the presidency through his staff. He reached out to Rob Blagojevich and suggested his longtime confidant and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett for his Senate seat but he didn't make an offer of a federal job in return. Rod was outraged in a recorded phone. Call the governor ranted. Do they think I would just appoint Valerie Jarrett for nothing. Just to make him happy incensed. He decided to approach someone else. Jesse Jackson Junior the son of his old friend Jackson couldn't offer rata job but maybe he would raise enough money for a large bribe. Ultimately though Jackson wasn't willing to pay he later claimed not to even have understood that. The governor was asking for a bribe with the no big offers forthcoming rod returned to plan B. Appointing himself. Chicago's biggest papers. Were starting to call for his impeachment but if he made it to the US Senate they probably wouldn't expel him. Expelling senators for actions. Taken in previous offices would set a precedent endangering other incumbents even if he lost the Senate seat after one term. It'd be easier to take than impeachment no matter how crafty the plan the FBI had waited far too long to let him get away before Rod could appoint himself to the Senate. They moved in based on wiretaps whistle blowers and his arrested former associates. They had plenty of evidence to make an arrest so around six. Am on December ninth. Two Thousand Eight A team of FBI AGENTS. Watch the sunrise from rods. Ravens would manner driveway then charged into arrest him. He was booked before nine. Am by eleven thirty. His wife was dropping off a suit to wear while hearing a judge. Read the charges against him. Rod was due for an ugly surprise. The counts weren't limited to just the Senate seat. They also included his trading of state jobs and appointments for campaign donations. He would be charged with wire fraud. Mail fraud racketeering. Extortion conspiracy attempted extortion and making false statements to federal agents. All in all there would be over twenty charges presented to a grand jury..

"Chicago's city motto is orbs in Horo Latin for city in a garden because of its many beautiful parks nevertheless abundant. Greenery isn't what comes to mind when most people think Chicago something. People do associate with the city corruption in the news media. Chicago style. Machine politics has long served as useful shorthand for bribery voter fraud and all kinds of election. Rigging four of the State's last eleven governors have ended up in prison the University of Illinois at Chicago ranked Chicago as America's most corrupt city. It's also debatably. One of the last cities still running a true political machine to understand why it helps to point to the late nineteenth century across America. New Emigrants arrived in the US and were told to register for political parties precinct. Captains directed them who to vote for in return politicians doled out government work notably in Chicago. Irish immigrants were promised control of the Police Department migrants then especially non-protestants had been shut out of most private sector jobs. The only way to make sure new arrivals got a shot. At the American dream was to provide them with government work. Political machines sprang up in every city to service. Those needs in exchange for power in most of America. Political machines eventually collapsed as their leaders lost elections to reformers from the opposition party but not in Chicago. The city really only has one party. Chicago's last Republican Mayor Left Office in. Nineteen thirty one ever since it's been one big democratic machine even though the state of Illinois has had numerous Republican governors in the interim that's the environment in which rod are Blagojevich. Cut His teeth in politics by the way that initial doesn't stand for anything. Blog has no legal middle name but uses are to honor his father Rod Blagojevich Rod born in Chicago on December tenth. Nineteen fifty six was proud of his father's Serbian heritage. But he was even more proud to be American. As a child he fell in love with Elvis Presley. The King of rock and roll he watched Elvis's performances on TV learning to sing all his idol songs. He could even mimic his body. Language that swagger would later serve him. Well in politics part diehard Elvis Fan Parts Sports jock young Rod Sprang into working as a shoeshine boy with a prodigious memory. At an early age he learned to memorize long lists pretty soon. He was using that same method to remember everyone he met. But Alas while Rod had some unique gifts he wasn't born a genius after graduating from High School in nineteen seventy five with lousy grades and test scores. He headed off to the University of Tampa. Currently Tampa is ranked by Forbes as the four hundred thirty third best university in the United States two years at Tampa was all it took for Rod to buckle down and improve his. Gpa In one thousand nine hundred seventy seven at age twenty he was able to transfer to Chicago's esteemed not Western University. Rod Hope to stay home in Illinois for good when he first moved back though. Rod didn't even know ward. He voted in. Chicago is divided into fifty wards each represented on the city council by its own official. These aldermen are similar to city council members but are more numerous and cover smaller districts each acts with pseudo mural power. They're often known for doing favors for constituents this once boring and complicated system now appeal to Rod. He started getting seriously interested in Chicago politics. His interest began as many things. In the world of political scandals do with Alexander Hamilton. Rod was infatuated with the ideals of the controversial founding father. He even memorized large portions of the federalist papers. Rod opted to major in history and enjoyed debating. His classmates always representing a conservative federalist point of view by the time he graduated in nineteen seventy nine. Rod had a plan to join politics just like his beloved Hamilton but first he wanted to become a lawyer. Northwestern and University of Chicago's law schools both rejected him as he did about as well on his L. Sets as he had on the act's instead he packed his bags for Pepperdine University in Malibu California a creature of habit rod soon fell back to pulling mediocre grades with all the fun of Malibu distracting him from his classes. He was unfocused. He later joked that he studied so little. He barely knew where the law library was. Unlike in Tampa Rod never really got his act together at Pepperdine. His academic merit wasn't carving a strong path for a future lawyer so in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. He tried out another track towards power. Patronage Rod Blagojevich was friendly with Chicago Alderman Edward Vrdoljak who was also a lawyer. When rod came home for the summer between his second and third years of law school his father got him meeting. Rod Left VRDOLJAK's office with a summer job as a Chicago. Leclerc Rod knew. He hadn't really earned what he was being offered yet. He didn't have time to doubt whether or not he should accept. He was just grateful and took time to express it by returning to the Alderman's office the next day just to say thanks after graduating in one thousand nine hundred eighty three rod spent some time in private practice then applied to be an assistant state's attorney for Cook County. He asked a friend's brother for help in getting in the door. Another favor owed but young rod wasn't thinking about how he might have to pay it back. Asa's in Chicago are pretty much. What assistant district attorneys are elsewhere prosecutors in rods case mostly of boring petty crimes that First Year? Nineteen eighty-six Alderman for DOLE EAC s rod to help one of his allies. Who is up for reelection? It was rods first time ever working on a real campaign. All he had to do was canvas. A neighborhood andropov flyers. Rod had a great time talking to voters. It didn't even dim his shine when the candidate lost. If anything rod was inspired to build connections and attend fundraisers one of the people he met was a powerful Alderman Dick Melle Mel a self made millionaire and kingmaker Chicago. Politics was best known for sabotaging. The city's first Black Mayor Harold Washington by blocking funding for WHO's infrastructure plan. One night in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight thirty one year old Rod Blagojevich attended his first event at Mel's house you wouldn't know. He was an aspiring politician though since he spent the entire evening. Talking to the Alderman's twenty three year old daughter Patti attractive will read and recently single. Patty Mel was tied to one of the most powerful political dynasties on the Chicago City Council. She was rods dream woman within a few weeks. They were dating after a few months. They were going steady. Go incidentally so was rods career by the end of the year. Rod was working part time as a staffer for her dad and being paid out of position.

I hope you continue tended to do that for the end of the show and hopefully for many shows to come. Are you enjoying this so far. Absolutely okay good all right well. Let's see. Let's see how this goes then. We'll see if I can push. You know I'm not gonNA. I'm not gonNA throw any wrenches here. We go so I think we left off saying that you know we had quite a list of customers. In the nineteen seventies. Take a lot of people that were trying to make their name and it will they already had made their name or were making their name in the world of of customizing cars but not in in a way that you would do in your own garage. This is something that's above and beyond that something outrageous and I've got a list here of some cars. I told you the name of one already that it's called the Red Baron and the Red Baron is is one rather him talk about but there's a four five or maybe even six that we want to talk about not so much in depth but more just like I want people to be aware of them and maybe look at them as good examples of what nineteen seventies produced or what these people produced in the nineteen seventies. Maybe and maybe just get a little bit of your feedback on on these and I will tell you this that I a couple years ago and I don't know if I ever got the mentioned this on car stuff because it was right around the time when we went off the air in the at the end of two thousand seventeen it was close to that I went to the mid. West on a on a trip a little road trip and I went to a place called the Speedway Motors Museum of American speed. It's in Lincoln Nebraska and I might have I might have been able to mention. I think I did and now I think about it. I think I said this is kind of a hidden gem out here in the middle of nowhere. It seems seems like nowhere but you know what I mean. It's unexpected where it is so this. Leeway Motorists Museum of American speed and I've got. I guess maybe an interesting thing that I want to mention about out that museum right now is that they have two of the hot rods that we're going to be talking about on display and the I mean we're talking about the actual ones the ones from the you know the magazine gene covers. You know the ones that made the auto ram circuit. We're talking about the red baron and another one. We're GONNA talk about in just a moment called. The boot hill express are both on display and the red baron is is something that came about like many of these cars did is Jeff. Baker pointed out in his letter to us is email to us that a lot of these cars actually started out as models or kit cars that children can put together on the desktop or adults. I guess can put together on their table top and make a really cool looking hot ride but they were just a toy. You know they started out as just a toy or even you know hot wheels toy or something like that but a lot of these start out as a model or a kit car in fact this one did a scale model designer by the name of Tom. Daniel he can see the Red Baron car for a company uncalled monogram and if you know the MONOGRAM company they've produced a lot of fantastic car models over the years and this was happening back in around nineteen sixty seven. I believe when he conceived do this whole idea and the model kit was released in nineteen sixty eight sold more than two million units. It was extremely popular model at the time time so Mattel decided that they were going to jump on the bandwagon as well. Mattel decided they were going to build a hot wheel car of of this as well so if you can find a red baron hot wheel wheel car. I think it's worth a decent amount of money at this point. It's kind of a collector's item. I don't know so much about the the monogram model because so many were produced but I think if you can find one of the the hot wheels cars there were something at this point but a guy by the name of Chuck Miller. Please call the styling I I think it's called styling customs. He decided that he was going to build build a full-size. Red Baron car which I think is a cool idea. You know to be able to look at a model car on the shelf and say you know what I want to drive that for real. I want that to be a real thing but he was going to pay ten thousand dollars in order to build this car to have it built and this is back in again. Late nineteen sixties the original car. There's a little a bit of variance in this car because the original kit car the model car came with what would be a nineteen fourteen Mercedes Benz in line six cylinder engine that was from a Falker airplane and so obviously there's not a whole lot of those available not a lot of on the market and that not easy to find so what they did was they they got a instead of the nineteen sixty eight pontiac overhead cam six cylinder engine and that's what powers the Red Baron and this car if you've if you've ever seen it. It's really remarkable and it's it's an interesting design. I think and it's one of the cooler looking high rise. I think it kind of stands up to the test time like I think this would be a cool hot ride to see on the road today definitely I. I don't feel like this. One has like that bizarre. Seventy late sixties early seventies feel to it. This one is definitely wild. It's definitely only out there but it. There's something about this. Too is still like still timely. This one seems like it was built in the late sixties early seventies but the design kind of feeds off of that World War One era sure has the helmet and the Iron Cross on the side yeah the spike on the top of the helmet it just seems like even though it was built in the seventies late sixties late sixties early seventies the design of it was conceived years before that well you know just to show you how along this would this design did hold up and people were still interested in seeing this thing it did toured the country as part of the traveling ram show. It stayed with the show until the nineteen nineties. He's so it did hold up and it was retired from service and that's when it's it went to live at the speedway motor museum that I was talking about the the Museum of American speed but it's a it's a really really cool cool car. I think if you get a chance to look it up online. It's called a red baron. Hot Rod is probably one you know I I would think that most people have probably already seen. This might not know what it's called you. You might say like Oh. I remember that from when I was a kid I built that model or I saw that hot wheels or by saw a magazine cover when some automotive shop or something that had that on it you know it but it it was something that was around for decades for some reason that one held up and we're going to talk about on the do not hold up for sure the next one I think is on the border. I guess maybe this one I. I don't know if it does or not. It's it's the boot Hill Express and again. This one lives at the same museum that I'm talking about. in Lincoln Nebraska the Museum of American speed and it's based on this is a really interesting. This is built by Ray Farner. That's based on the eighteen fifties funeral coach that supposedly carried a an actual James Gang member named Bob Younger to his grave which I think is pretty cool. I mean if this is real. I mean I don't. I don't know the validity of that statement. I don't know if this is if this is the the actual stage. But what do you think you think there's any any any truth to that or do. You think this is a a you know someone pulling a fast. I feel like it might may be a little bit of a fast one. You do yeah but it definitely has that look. I mean you got it. Looks like it could have been pulled by a horse and it's too if nothing else it's perfect recreation of it but there are many scale scale models that were made of the you know of this thing of course but it's probably one of the the crazier creations that that were ever made or developed in in this timeframe as well because it's just a strange thing right to take an eighteen fifties funeral coach in create a hot rod out of it. I mean who would ever think of that but then again you know this list who would ever think of taking okay. I'm an you mentioned one that we're not going to go too deep into here but we ever think of taking an outhouse and making that into a Herreid someone did there. There's one called the outhouse rod and the outhouse ride. What is is exactly what you would think it looks like a model t bucket hot rod or whatever but it is? It looks like an outhouse on wheels. It's it's ridiculous we even I. We had just a brief conversation about this one in particular in that these aren't your ordinary. You know I'm GonNa put gold rims on something or chrome rims on something or you know I'm not GonNa I dunno jack it up or lowered or whatever this is a statement this is this is like somebody's personality in some ways you put it yeah. This is somebody's personality. They're trying to net force on you but trying to tell you something with their designed there yelling at you with these types of designs a lot of people their cars. They put subtle touches there that make you say like Oh. That's cool but these are basically in your face. This is what I'm saying. I see that okay. I see what you're saying and I I get it. I understand what you were talking about. When you look at maybe like the cars of like Ed Roth you look at some of those and those crazy creations that he had and they were interesting but like what what do you do when you've got a an outhouse car like what's that personnel and I know you. Don't you don't have to answer. I don't I don't either. I don't have the answer that but what if someone's personality when they are again screaming at you you know here's here's my creation but it's it's an outhouse on on a high ride Jesse. I don't know it's weird weird. this is the is that far out mindset of the late sixties bleeding over into the seventies. Where do you go after the sixties. I guess so I doc I guess so you know it's funny because you know I mean to each his own right. I mean it's fine. The person wants to build a fantastic and it's an interesting looking. It's interesting. I wouldn't say it's beautiful but that's just me. Some people might think it's beautiful. It's different. It's it's unique of course. It's probably fast. If I had to guess it looks fast giant chrome engine in the front of it and I don't know what the engine is but huge. I don't know the these are just so fat like all of them are fascinating one one to me that I just I don't know if I will ever ever get this. This one and this is the next one on our list. This is one that you absolutely have to look up in order to to understand what we're talking about. Are you can try if you want. If you're driving your car you can try to understand. It's called the Bathtub Rod. There's a couple of versions of this. There is the bathtub ride and then there's also another car could call the bathtub buggy now. The Bathtub Aftab ride was built by a guy named Rob Reisner in nineteen sixty eight against the late sixties kind of bleeding over in the nineteen seventies but carried on through the seventies. The Bathtub Buggy was a sort of similar bathtub hot rod that was built by George Barris embarrassed. I think was also promoting the ROB Reisner car in this is the where the the connection is made here so he's kind of promoting the bath tub. I'll try to keep straight the bathtub ride by Reisner and he's at the same time builds. The Bathtub. Buggy himself is kind of his own expression of the same thing. Whatever that thing is now that we're getting back to. What are you? What are you doing with this Car George. Why are you building this when you look at these designs and I'll I'll. Maybe you should describe them well. The the ocala tried to okay the Bathtub Rod from what I remember you have to bathtubs at the back that's vest the passenger seats and then toilet for the driver's seat or kind of yellowish upholstery in there so it's real just real real funky yeah and it's quilted yeah quilter bull quilted upholstery yeah and but the but the seats like okay so you're laying down in a bathtub in the back as a you know left and rear passenger. It's a three seater car really if you WANNA put it that way. it has lots of gold on it of course the the you know the driver as you said is sitting sitting on a throne.

I said, hey, you know, what this thing with Romney's really mad? It's really upset according to tusk. Rod dent said that he wanted roms brother a powerful Hollywood agent to hold a. Fundraiser for the book oil-rich campaign. He said tell Rahm that. You know, I need to get the phone first. And then he can have the grant. And obviously it was pretty clear to me. And I think probably anyone listen to this right now, that's a legal you can't link a government grant for school to put ical donations. So I hung up the phone with him tusk, then call the top lawyer in the governor's office and said he need to get your client under control. I said what do you mean? Here's what he just did. And now is the grant was eventually given the fundraiser never happened. This episode would have legal consequences later, but it also topped Bradley tusk a lot about rod. He was really really consumed with how much money he raise. But I think even more than that he was really insecure about his ability to actually govern to think through by DA's and policies and articulate them. And he knew that if he had enough money and he had the right ad maker. And the right message that could carry the day, no matter what. And I think he'd really relied on that. Petty says, there's nothing complicated. Or corrupt about rods fundraising operation. It's just politics as usual. This is just what you need to do to stay in office. If he didn't have any money in his campaign fund. It would invite opponents because they'd see him as weak and not being able to fight off any opponents. And then if you looked weak like that, then, you know, then you look like a lame duck. Then you can't get anything done because they think that you're not going to be back for a second term. So I was very important to have that position of strength rods position would have to be strong because it was more bad news on the way. Just before the two thousand six general election to go, which is fund raisers were indicted. They were charged with trying to extort millions from people wanting to do business with two state boards. One of those fundraisers was Tony Risco who the indictment alleged was raising money for an unnamed public official. A if in fact, he's allegations relating to Tony are true. He betrayed my trust. He lied to me. He deceived. Meet but a lot more important than that. He violated the public trust. Go tried to downplays ties with Rasco as role within the administration, even though Risco was giving rod the names of campaign donors to put on state, boards and commissions and rod was doing it. During this press conference. Rod basically said this was just a couple of bad actors, and he wasn't directly implicated is personal scheme by two people who allegedly were trying to rich themselves and were acting on their own to enrich. Themselves. And if in fact, they did these things they broke the law. They ought to be punished. Vulnerable. He had plenty of bad headlines. State officials were after him the FBI was after him. And then there was political opponents..

"Let's not forget the people who worked really hard to bring buchnevich to Justice in the first place the FBI agents. What is they think about rod possibly walking out of prison early? Here are agents, Murphy and Kane, we knew from anecdotal information that rod and President Trump had gotten along very well when Rodney was on his show, but beyond that, I don't know if I want to render much of opinion, we're proud of the work we've done, and I guess we'll just leave it at that. I don't like pardon powers of the president. I personally just a personal view the man who was actually in charge of the investigation into rod Blagojevich FBI, special agent, Robert grant, what the president's actual motivations for considering this commutation. I don't know. But it appears to be uneducated. I don't trust President Trump in his flippant TV watching comments on something like this. I. I find that. It. It's it's revolting to me. Trump wants the side with the bad guys live in the poll that is rod McCoy Mitch in his his his band of cutthroats. That's for him. I mean, how how moved should any of us be by the central argument? I think that you're from MRs Bogo veg that they had two daughters these daughters lost the childhood and not having a father. Should we be moved by that should that be driving force in letting the governor out early? No that was something. He should've considered before he engaged in the behavior that caused him to be sent to prison. I mean, there's many people in prison that have families maybe Patty should look more at the behavior of her husband and say, you know, we're in the situation because of what you did. Why hasn't he come around to that? Why is it come around to accepting guilt? 'cause he's not. And. Not. Yeah. I made you secure ever will. Why would you accept? Why would you resign yourself to that? If you know in your heart that you're guilty. Yeah. Yeah. So I didn't tell you about the dogs. You know, we never had dogs before all this happens. So skittles was the I call her the restore your father got arrested dog. Goodness. Let's get poppy has we had to kind of distract from try to give the kids something. And then fortunately Twix was the sorry father's going to jail dog. Well, let's get another puppy. He's get another puppy. The few moments when rod is taken out in handcuffs and the door closes and your house is quiet. And here you are by yourself processing, all of this. What what do you remember about that? This is that I mean nothing's ever going to be the same again. This is our lives are now changed forever. Does the cat. Go back from Beth B I arresting you. I mean, that's it.
