Raw give us an update on the kids. How old are they right now. And how many grandkids we up to four grandkids. I'll start with that because that's the first Same come to my mind. As far as how old twin boys. German zachary are just over thirty. They had the thirtieth so they're going to be thirty one. I believe come. This may right around the corner and then you me how all the kids about it. But molly's over twenty four twenty five and jacob. I twenty two or twenty three so screw starting that i. I know all their birthdays. But there ain't with. I'd have to copulate but there again that point in life where you know. They're all on their own doing very very well. They're all healthy. Grandkids are growing like weeds So we got little jackson we Jackson has a three year old. He's for your sitter lion. Want an jeremy and audrey they have bony imber an industry and the he's one run around one years old so Get to see him a lot and they're always at the farm and it's a it's life is good. Life is good on the role of fossil bodies. The newest addition to the family bodey is the latest addition to the family right now. Yup when your dollar. Jeremy and the youngest at he's he's a we come bodey bear because it looked like a little teddy bear. Well well one thing. I wanted to do here matt. I know last time we we touched on all your kids. I wanted to kind of take a deep dive here back into you. Start from the beginning of all this with your father. Wanted to kind of know a little bit about the relation. You and your dad so if you could. What was the relationship like with your dad. How kind of follow was he. When you were growing up very great relationship with my dad still do on. I don't see him as much. They live down in california kind of distant from now. You know life gets busy and you. You don't get a chance to keep up as much as you'd like but But my dad had big presence in my life growing up. He was always home every night and we had dinner together. Family prayed at the table together as a family. Every single night He worked very hard but he also had time for kids. We did things You know he was always building things. I think i've inherited some of my sort of construction passion from him. The carpenter at one point in a truck driver and You don't my dad. Let me with some of the best Word pictures parables not from the bible but also biblical principles but also just having a confident in myself. Knowing i could be interesting. I wanna be used to say you can be president if you wanna to be nothing Obviously instilled in me a sense of self worth and self respect. Then he was always like it when the going gets tough the tough get going with one of his common phrases Very inspirational father. Figure to me. If i had to pick one here no in my life it would be my father. Egypt was always talking about you know one of his other everywhere you go very are none other words. Accept yourself for who you are because you can't run away from yourself That's the way. I took that in everywhere. You go there you are. You know he'd say that fairly frequently on And that was a code word for you. Know like yourself and love yourself because That should become who you wanna love. Because that's Who you're stuck with if very well said and saying that wherever you are there you are is more to i. I hear like being present to a lot of times. It becomes with a lot of the data talk about work life balance and it becomes one of these things of becoming present where you are where. Sometimes we're at the job thinking about our family. Sometimes the family. We're thinking about the job so being where you are. Sometimes a little easier said than done off from time to time. Well how your experience and watching your dad become a grandfather. What type of grandfather was he to your kids mike. My dad had for a period of time actually lived here in oregon for a couple years and so they were always wanting to be involved in my in my in. My kid's life has grandfather and now as great grandfather. It's amazing to watch my my dad. Come here's a great grandfather. So he's eighty eighty two years old and he wants to go down the slide with dummy wants to ride a bike with me wants to be very. He's very active physical And so he's still. He wants a little baby. Just hit when a little bit grant his gray granted. My grandkids come into the room. Hit up and just you know very animated and very victim up and hugged them and squeeze me very physical and in terms of just want to squeeze them and hug them and levonne and play. Go play with them. He gets in the toy room and get on the floor and play trucks. So he's extremely you know when they when they're the rope It's the only thing that matters and so he's very very distracted by the tv or book or he shift on full attention and my mother does too. So they're quite a couple van married forever. I don't know can't say move for fifty years. They're very much in love he. My dad was a big tough marine And you know it's been rough tough physical carpenter and truck driver and then My mom was high school sweetheart and they're still married today as it doesn't inspirational story to we use more of that and i know that Your marriage went through obviously a very public divorce that became more of a focal points of the show but of the tabloids and all this other stuff so what kind. How did he kind of navigate through that situation in your life. What kind of advice that. He gives you in the onset and throughout the whole process of the divorce. Well you know that one. I'm sure another time when my dad would say everywhere. You go there yard in other words. You can't run you know so there's a problem when you run into from it or really trying to fix something and you know i had to sort through that and Might folks have always been very supportive of my decisions. You know whether they're right wrongly agree with them or not agree with them. They have been supportive of me throughout my entire life no matter what what i'm doing They don't always like it and they let me know we don't know if you know. Have you worked at. Have you tried this. have you done that. And they're very good. Life coaches that regard And you know when it. When amy and i got to a point where we just didn't think that working anymore You know they were supportive at the same time. They were disappointed They didn't like the fact they would like to try to. You know magically fixings and rely on some of the tools that they've use in their marriage over the years But i would i generally out supported for whatever decisions i need to make in like. Yeah good stuff. And i mean obviously on my show i talk a lot about the fatherless crisis that we have going on in our country too many kids growing up without a father or father. Figure in your life your kids. Grandkids are blessed hat. Not only of. I is that i grandfather or great grandfather as well. So they're very blessed to have that in their lives. And i'm the father figure. Did you have any other type of father figures in your life growing up whether that be through sports at school with any other father figures to kind of help you out along the way i don't know about five and figured might father was a big presence as a father figure. He was the father in the family and he had told you know Command of his his his ability. As i did have though without said some High school teacher. That were very influential. And i still remember many of the lessons. I my woodshop teacher. Mr von anderson. You know he would call me out whenever i procrastinate admit to roll up. Are you procrastinating on your because that would be helping other students with their you know putting dowels or cutting their data blazer data customer whatever and he was a what about your storm mr off your hunting everybody else only behind schedule so whatever. I was building at the time. But so i don't think i procrastinate once high school. Thanks to run certain. You know some of my other teachers. My math teacher for example mr cloud contractor Was i wouldn't have liked math at all. And i had troubles in algebra are yeah algebra was you know but when i got the geometry he would very good. I'll jump drag. Took two more naturally so out restaurant with geometry angles things where my thing and so he you know he was good about not Throughout the referred to good about encouraging me through that when you get geometry. You might do better. And sure enough if i did so. He nurtured material on my mass. Even though i wasn't a great student Never went to higher education. But even today i apply some of the physics and things that i learned in certainly geometry and the physics that i that i learned in high school through this teacher. I'm applying it to my building. I wouldn't you know built my tree house. You know camera levers and learn how to go. Engineer thing never had any formal training but but learn what. I need little saying out there. You'll learn everything you need to know kindergarten winder and everything. I need to know up to high school. And then i took off in life. Well different than me. I learned most of my basic math skills came at the race track reading the racing format betting on horses and i ended up getting through last book and from my teachers gainful sir. That should be opposed more about that later. But i wanted to ask you to. How was your dad's reaction. How did he can handle it with your surgeries that you had to go through. How is he during that entire process especially early on in your life. Well you know. My dad was very practical. You know he would say hey. Life isn't always fair was another regular montage and white bear you. You got the bad debt. are bad hand. Now what are you gonna do about it. You know and what you know. How are you going to forward. Put one foot in front end. Lift good out there and do it and make it happen. And he would just you know very big on getting intellectual intellectual development going so that i could survive in the world not be able to work at mcdonald's so you might have because you're not going to be able to stand up and reach the counters and serve people so you might as well get your head gone so you don't have to pump gas. You can do something else you know. And he was very good at making sure that. I stayed on my studies in school and that i was learning my craft the time it was computer programming Show but he would very practical you know and and we were in the hospital. I was in my dad. Come visit you know after his shift at work and you know even when they couldn't come in the hostile visit they knock on the window and talk through the window and say they were very Active in we're in body casts a lot my dad chariot around me you know but me and my brother had by getting carries on a shoulders you know propped rivers and out in. We'd go camping fishing Just like any childhood but we took the family vacation across the country and we were invited cast and he would saw we just like any other american family doing regular vacation working hard and playing hard and it's easy to hear you say like you've been handed a bad deal or a bad hand and what you've done with what you've been given has been amazing you've you employed so many people. The success of the show has made so many people a success and have been a blessing disowning people worldwide especially the little people community. So you turn what you've been given into an amazing miracle here and i i think it's it's inspired. Continue to go forward with the new season. And all the show coming up here. And i wanted to ask you to stick onto other father figures. What has your relationship like with parents. You have relations with her father. I have a very close relationship with karen town with karen father. Yeah and i have He he may lived down arizona in fact they are the ones that convince us to buy plates in arizona so we have a house Literally a couple of blocks away from that so every time we're in arizona. We see each other just about every day. I go to dinner with karen under mama out doing the lady getting her nails done whatever her her dad and may get together and have wrapped in week. We talked about everything from the stock market investments. To you know we have we have an array of conversation that we catch up on Her down you know like my dad worked very hard. Had a business some in a retiring and selling and so we you know we have a very very close relationship. And i love them dearly. Just like i do my own folks very cool. What about as far as relationship at all. Your kids are married correct. They're all only only get. So what is the relationship like with with Spouses of your kids parents where you have. What is really should live with them. Well with jeremy hand audrey that her parents name our data in a sandy and arm with great with the turn. I take them out to dinner periodically. Every couple of don't live far from here to the dinner. You know talked about how the kids are doing. The baby's grandbabies. I don't see tories parents as often my birthday parties and things like that and not i get along great with you. Know everybody's kind of a big happy family. And amy and chris and we all bodey had a birthday party recently on all the you know the german family over there and we were there and then you know when lila had her birthday. We all got together with their parents in the in. The wife's parents soaks Where does pretty much big extended happy family. Most of the top. We have our moments as we all do mad so and then turning it over here to you as a dad. I know you got hit twins right off the gate here. We have myself. We have four kids from my wife. And i go in from two to three was probably the most difficult transition for us. As far as the nomination of kids what would you say was most challenging transition for you as far as number of kids that you went through i would say going from the trends you know. We were just like in a certain child. That was a wakeup call. A little bit that you know. Got the twins her during the toddler thing. And now you got a new baby. And you know with the twins. We we're very systematic. When you pull out the diapers we pull to diapers you know and when you line them up lying wife get the wipes and get two bottles. And so don't get me wrong. He would have something completely different to say about how hard which one would but for me. I was like wait a minute. I'm getting snapped toddler. Now have another baby that would be I would save going to to three was sort of a wake up. Call once you get the four and you kind of like okay. We got this down you know. Yeah nothing but respect for people have twin. Because i just don't by omar i two are about fifteen months apart and that was close that you know a little bit of their taste. But i couldn't imagine doing double duty at the same time so always have respect for people that are parents of twins. What about what were grown up. Did you always wanna have kids. When did it become known. Jewish that i would love to have kids or start families. That's something you always wanted to do. I always wanted to have careful thought expected. I would have children and someday i didn't know how many i think i talked about having a just two or three and so when we had a jacobs the one You know a little bit of fried. That took us off guard a little bit but that would grade. We're super happy with all of our kids. And they all bring something very special and joyful our lives and what has been. I mean. obviously this year everyone's to regular the pandemic has sent everybody pretty hard. What has been some of the challenges of you being granted that interrupt relationship with how many times often you could see the grandkids and how does depend on kind of place. You really should with the kids and the grandkids while obviously covert has affected everybody including honest here. Now we're very very blasted fortunate that we have this farm. You know this is one hundred and ten acres with many buildings and sleeping orders and kidron and blazes so we have been we call the star bubble rollo far bobble and we get tested regularly. We send in test cats and and you know. Send them out to labs. We'll get i get tested on almost every week During the to make sure that. I'm not getting it and pass it on so on but we take all the precautions. You know we've been doing the mask and vaccinated fully vaccinated now for last couple of months but Lee distorted costing our fingers and praying that nobody got the cova. Nobody brought the cope the bubble kobe. Indoor bubble and But i i haven't had you know not see the ran kids mud multi. Although it did we were trapped in their zone auto because of travel restrictions came up. Karen and i happened to be down in arizona when they put some tabby duty restrictions down so we miss them for about three months last year And nobody wants to. I wanted to see my grandkid. So they the process i went through. I ended up because he couldn't get on a plane driving back and sleeping in the car. Eating the sandwiches. Karen had wave me goodbye. I took the car that we have an arizona and drove all the way back to oregon to Get back to get back to cedo grandkids and they'd get tested and then the corinthian period anyway. The cogan hasn't been fun for anybody. Everybody's got hit with it in one way or another and the same roles but for the most part. We've been fortunate. Yeah i'm gonna touch a little bit more on the farms impact from covert in. Just a second here but bringing into the kids. What is what would you say has been the favourite attraction. I know you got a lot of things. I've been able to take the tour of the farm year you got you got projects going on all over the place. What's been the favourite attraction of your kids. What's like the homerun attractive for the kids that come door of the season. What what's the whole ball here. Well you know ships around the home reno that my kids i built all these fancy structures you know the the number dr tree house in the catholic a western town near the tower of terror and mike. It's love playing in the nature of the forest. You know we have about five acre four to two hundred varieties of trees multiple big matured and they would build ford's to dig whole burrow into the ground. Have campout sleep paintbox so they. They liked the my kids love the forest. That was always their favorite people. What do you mean. They don't like all the stuff you. But they love on the four instances that that nature you know in and so i think a lot of kids come out to the western town. That probably the big hit now. I've got some new project reading on the corner. You know that you've been able to see. Thank you for making that journey out here from from new jersey and so the the log cabin is you now is a big focus point for me right now to little structure of one room cabin my favorite for me. It's always the latest project. I'm working on my favorite but we have some go mali's gasol pretty cool in quite a few other things. Yeah makes sense. A lockout looks tremendous. It's it was exciting. A chance to take a look at it the inside of their. I can't wait to see the finished product. And it'll be able to reference where i saw it at this stage. It is looking very close and you reminded what you say. Their kids playing in the forest. It's like on christmas. Be by these elaborate gifts in the end. The playing with the boxes at toy came. And that's always the biggest hit. And i know one of the focuses here too is on the future of the form so you obviously have a newly strongly ship with karen. You also have grandkids. Now that are getting their first taste of the farm here. So how does all of this play into your decision on what the future to fall. I'm to be well. Obviously you don't care and has been familiar with the farm of you. Know for many years have been bolted employees here and now her night dating she. She's got a heart for the farm. She loved her. She has wrong chicken coop out there and she loves interacted with jackson and the grandkids. You know that love the farm so I think karen would admit this revenue come a farm girl in a lotta ways and enjoy. The beauty of the farm on jobs. Loves our getaway time. When i'm not distracted with the project so she shoots game you know point when she says when you gonna retire when i'm not ready to retire yet. Come back to that but She them a little bit. I think she would like to see me. Not have as many responsibilities here. Maybe spend a little bit more time with her down in arizona But she is committed to the farm in whenever she very good about whatever youth would. I'm not she ever pushes me in any one direction. But i do know gentle. She probably likes to see me. Simplify a little bit. And and not you know. Just purchased amy. Side of the farm sean. She very supportive about all that but But at the same time i think it'd probably a little to go the opposite direction as you know reduced my involvement and at some point down the line where that may be an and you are away from the farmer retired from the farm where disassociated with the farm in a sentence or distant from it. Would you say you would miss the most about the form. I would definitely miss the new project. I love mike wittment. You know. I just love to get it my big boy toys and You know joy anything. Have the joystick. I can sit in the seat and Kind of control. The world through through big hydraulics. You know big grabbers and thumbs and bulldozer. Blades and tractor. I have a always have new toys. Come got a new chipper. So my favorite tori now. We're chipping tonight. I can't even use it because it's a big dangerous. You know commercial break chipper But i also have a sawmill. That's on way in various. I'm built throw a log in there. Sit at a little seat and push logs and cut lumber dry love. That's what i miss the multiply but i'm not planning on ever. I'm planning on dying here on this side of the farm on the north side. We call the original farm. The service record you know. Hopefully one of the you know we're going to figure out which one of the kids might be interested or combination thereof but The south side of farm. I'm hoping to dig my grave here. Well i would circle back to this too. Because it's so one of the things i want to ask you some of the stuff. I've been reading online now in the last six months. It's been a difficult time for the role of family. Not only as we mentioned here the kovin. We've had made some adjustments here on form but also Jacob came out with a from really shocked. News he put the instagram post about his incident. And then we also. I recently read about your daughter in law tori suffering from a miscarriage. So let's start with the jacob incident. Here i iran which is a very Heartwarming posted. He put out on instagram about this. That was when. I guess the rest of the world became aware of this. When did you become aware of this entire thing. Jacob molested we we as a family found out just two days are true or three days before that jacobson down a tax the family group tax and it it was hard. It was a heartbreaking revelation We um it caught us all by surprise we had no idea and you know he wants to explain. That had happened. Back in two thousand fifteen was a single incident. It didn't happen on the far happened. You know off the farm and he you know one of those things where you just you think you've you grace sture family and prepare kids for the same black. Then talk to him about regularly. We had some other scares in the early days when everybody john and we were very Protective particularly we were worried about my colleague involved in something You know we had A you know when we did the show. We had a number of fans that were over zealous to you know. Get to various members of the family. That they were fixated on and we always thought that would come from somebody. We didn't realize it'd be something close. So the jacobson was was heartbreaking. cheered on but we were also very very very very very proud of jacob in the in the way that he came out and talked about hit. You know getting this off. His chat minded chests to the he could develop a continual growth. I think we're his words I mean his post said it. All you know his you know. Poco revelation said everything we needed to know and We were all taken aback. Devastated by it To think something you know so crazy and eagle can happen so close Inside the family but But he. I just saw jacobson's last week and i've talked him on the phone. Several times percents him. And i and and and isabel his wife keeping a close relationship every time. He's here on the farming visit for a while talking right. Now he's really into micro jacobs's super duper duper smart kid. Reads you go to his house. Layered with books and musical instrument and he is into the science of dirt and fertile soil data and start a compost pile so him and connecting recently on on composting and microbiology. And all the little bugs and worms at eton you know compost and make it fertile stuff. So i'm very excited about you. Know connecting on that and he and yeah you know. Jacob seem to be putting this incident behind him and so that's what we're we're working on that we're open to talk about it but you know he. He seems to have a handle on his own development. And what happened. And i'll be honest with matt. There's no telling how many people he may have prevented from being in a situation. Or how many people. He inspired to come forward in their own story. Share it with their families. And i've had an eight. Ceo craig sawyer on the podcast. The few times he started the program vets for child rescue. He goes after these sexual predators and he talks a lot about this grooming process. That jacob a went through with this a predator and it is is a bigger problem than most people are aware of. And there's so many of these people that are out there. And the result the path of destruction leave behind is very detrimental. Will you here are just a fraction of going on on the news and tv. But they're still meeting that you can't and this can happen any time any where i mean. It can happen in your neighborhood. You can have your family members You know when you're not looking you just you know you can have it in your in your church. Goals or sports teams Show every paramount. There certainly was a wakeup call for me to even though my kids are grown and we have grandkids doubled down effort. Make more rules more. You know more precaution Figure out how to be more open about discussing things You know and known that that every person out there needs to be aware this stuff. We thought we were. We have a lot of rules about you know access and this afternoon and the incident. I was no longer associated with the farmers show or would have happened years after is association but came back into You know jacobs life somehow and It would sort of an evil process that went on from what we understand And we just but now okay we got to redouble our efforts every turn to warning every parent amen. I thought we pretty ten but somehow we we missed the boat and you know you obviously when you hear about this as a father Not only devastated to hear your kid. But you know you're devastated. Protect your child so You know we're worried about jacob recovery and Also worried about our own. My own sense of u- worse himself as a father how i could drop the ball so badly and i thought it was doing all the right then. That wasn't enough. And you know i it's close to my heart. My wife went through sexual abuse as a child. So she's super alert when it comes to things like identifying people who around our kids as has your vetting process when pharmacy when season comes you hire a lot more people to come onto the farm and helped now. You have grandkids. Running around has anything. I'd your vetting process changed at all as a result of what's happened jay. We've always been pretty good about running. Background checks particular vendors and people that are close You know in the whether it be Production our employees. But we now have a very. We've those those roles have doubled tripled with realize anything's possible. And you just turn it back for suck at the wrong relationship gardening so i i would say heart. Vetting process is definitely. There's a whole new layer of Concern and caution. About especially you know talking a lot to one tori. Jeremy audrey just like you know trying to understand how stuff like this happens and what what those signs are and try to for that saves from Going to where sugar protective. Yeah good stuff and just putting on on tori recently read that. She suffered a miscarriage. My wife and i. Unfortunately we've been through this several times and it and it's always a devastating result and it's very hard especially as a husband and a father. Watch my wife through this and it's just because what happens. Is we kind of get this mental image and excitement. We find out pregnant so we already start to envision our lives with this new person. That's going to be coming or your girl thinking of names. How are older brothers or sisters are going to react to it. They're going to be a good big brother. And we have all these things that we see and then just an instant against wiped out vision dies with it so What was it like. What was it like for pretoria. Go through this. How did you kind of handle this with tori. and zack. Well obviously it's a very personal thing to them on as grandpa come once removed from from it and you still feel devastated. Because i was going through the same process. You described starting to imagine what this baby was going to be like new personalities turning starting to daydream about person the personality on. And then you get this news and you can do is pray and be their support I think the biggest revelation of the whole process is exactly what you said how how common it is how people going through this and So i'm again super happy. Tori put something out publicly to share her story. Because i think it will help Moms and dads grads. Grandma's all over in all often. You know grandma's gonna get you know are the second thing but i think that the docking tori zach particularly been very good about keeping me up today and i you know karen van in helping you know to support a torn anyway. She can a as as a friend To port part of the support team so if it devastating But you're not alone and so those that little comfort from knowing that And then story You know it should shoot strong too strong smart woman and so shoes you know figuring out processing it. And i'm very proud of votes tori and how they've handled themselves through at this tragic at version. And i think the key point who by always tried to remind my wife of every time we went through. This was that it wasn't her fault. It's not her fault this happen then. I would hope that. That's the same advice. Tori guests knows that it's not her fault. This is a common thing that happens and moulton. Ninety percent of the time is nothing you can do to prevent it from happening so deep and long know. I want to address some of the rumors that i read quite often. I keep up today part of the conversation. One of the hit this one here. You mentioned it a little bit. We were talking about with the offices here. Matt roloff plans to retire. Twenty twenty two. you know. I don't know where these people come up with this. Somebody sits around and dreams up now now that particular one you know i was laugh at and wait a minute did i say your i do talk about only in the context that i want to reduce the amount of work. I'm trying to recruit one of the kids start. Mowing the lawn guys. I want to start timing but not no serious Real talk about retirement shortly in a time line. I think that article that came up on my news flash. I would hope you give this case here. Yeah we'll talk to her. Let me hit this. One matt meryl would rather jeremy take over the law arm rather than zach. Not doesn't i have no preference on taking on from what i would love to see. Most i'm gonna put this on record with you. I'd love to see the kids. Come together and come up with a mixed Involvement in taking the somehow credit corporation share. You know maybe one would live in the house where the other one would help with this and they would share in the benefits of the ownership of the farm. I mean jacob jacob now or have an interest in dirt. And i want to be involved with. He wants to take make a big compost pile. You know and have a little corner of the farmer do his complex in a. I want that to happen. So I want my kids to have some sort of Seat at the table. If you will on the future of the farm into wetter we can work out. But no that article is completely faltered notes things. I want one kid to be favored over other kid in terms of ownership of the farm. I mean it's true that germany has always been the defacto people have just assume at But all the kids wanna have some sort of figure in the pies so to speak they all maybe not active interest but maybe a silent interest And so we're we're we're having those discussions on their complicated until for right. Now we're getting through cohen and settling out. What's going to be the future of the pumpkin. Pumpkin patch I've owned a whole farm now and we're gonna sit down. It's written on my estate planning on program as shared endeavor and but if one of the kids decides he wants to have a bigger piece of the responsibility that mo- more do more mowing spend more time on the road to taylor then we're will continue to be open to the contract but that's when they come out with these articles like that out my mind i mean sometimes i laugh and sometimes i cry that what people you know some of the bite my tongue off because you know we've been praying being in this business for as long as we have we've been trained to ignore media and when things come to our attention that aren't true are hurtful you know we've been trying all my kids were so perfect skin the grew up with you know have sex and don't worry about it just ignore it can go about your business and you don't give credibility but stop times these people assuming they're adults and they act like will kid where they put out bad information the one of the most grievous to me recently with something about matt roll up the you know relied on pilar while i have that down your man i wanted to address i know you had to reduce the amount of people like everybody else with covid Some people get laid off some people had to shut. Their business is down. You kept the farm rolling through kovic so i. I was surprised to read that. It said that you took out something a two hundred thousand dollar ep loan. I was surprised. At what actually happened here. I know pinky nine zero and one art one news outlet wrote that and then other ones picked up from them matt role of rely on ppp. It's not true that didn't happen. And matt roloff did another another farm in weren't corolla far so there's some confusion there okay. But you know what it's irresponsible of these news outlets Number one the ones that originally sorts out information shame on them for being riding something not if they're sophisticated enough to look up that the roll update a roller farm. Got a couple of hundred thousand dollars. Pp then they should be sophisticated to look that. That's not this role our family you know there's other roll up roll role because we sort of made the roloff name genetical a thing on tv that every other officers. We didn't even know this form. We never met any of them. Were not no harm to them. They need people. I mean that's what they're for and help my circumstances here at being owner of this role on farm. That's you're the one that you know. I'm sitting on your sitting on. We didn't have to do that. And we you know we were nervous. We we looked at option but we were able to. I've got up earlier and working harder. we're blessed to be able to continue to. The show could still do a pumpkin patch last year. We had to reduce it but we cut our expensive not our employees. We kept our employees on And We didn't hire me. Seemed people temporary as we typically do in october. We kinda reduced them. That doubt profitable. We kept our full-time. We actually added people You know just try to keep them off unemployment. Same so we will. we take. We were doing a lot of good things to hear the pumpkin. Patch roloff farms roloff. Roll fun to keep on keeping going k. Contribute to the economy and try to you know. Pay our cats and and not you know my dad. Another huge implants. When my when i was a kid you know my dad used to say you're not gonna live off other people me no money. I mean some people have to do that. I don't begrudge anybody on the needs a sit up governments. Therefore but i do regret people. That don't need it that Know that take advantage of that. Because you know i think a lot of taxes. Then you know it's fine but you gotta do is part of your civic duty and and responsible billion. My father taught me that taught me you know he just fight my disability and i could be on disability in common so i took my body too cranky to get out of bed this morning. Now get up and go out there and pound the pavement and work a little harder. Fashion smarter make things happen An contribute don't don't be the drop down. That's why i respect you out gonna know you pretty good over the last couple of days and even last several years there you were multiple diverge you got the family of four you give me your routine about eating dinner as a family together And praying dare every night. And i just don't think just you know and then you're still chasing this out. I has fatherhood and the people you get on there and that you reach out to. I'm amazed by urine rationing So i appreciate what you're doing and i try to follow the same standard of work hard provide on the same way. I appreciate that manage. The american dream really is what it is. That's what it's all about. And i love the fact that you have this family unit. Although you had your issues family guys are strong. He said unit. You all work together. And that's where. I think we need to see more of that. Would strengthen our entire you our entire country we strengthen our family units may bring some god back into the flow. I think most of the problems. We see an answer really quickly well. Our family has problems with everybody. Who a lot of dark dirty laundry. They're out on our show and we have our ups and bound our challenges. You know we bumped in our relationships and things and you know i feel very fortunate as as the father of my forecast now four grandkids. You know my parents. And i worked really hard to kind of try to keep you know. It's not always easy. Gets kind of thin. The more things multiplying have extended family but I worked really hard to try to spread myself out and keep my relationship. I or my forget the phone talking. You know anytime over here. Babysit their kids. I've seen that just being here and being here and so You know the cross relationship bumping and in and you know you you feel bad. Sometimes you can seven to do something about it all the time. You can't have to let little time. He'll be hurt some feeling and But it some doing shows like yours is super important because it really. I do hope inspired me. I hope it inspires others That being you know parenting is a is a big responsibility like you say. We're not big sittard. Where parents. I take my sons zachary says that to me all the time He's been torian. And jeremy audrey and That that that's taken the responsibility of fatherhood seriously and realizing that You could always do better and being a father is on his first class job. Well said and i used to be able to say. I'm at the one and only roloff farm. But i just learned today that this isn't the one dot com so on that now i want to turn it over to your legacy here. What what do you want. What would you say you want a legacy of the role or farm to be perkins on now. I you know it's funny. I think about legacy and you know i think that The you know the show. Obviously there's a lot of with alexei. We've got the best home videos in the world. You know. I always used to be a fanatic video with the family and growing before the show. Dark tacoma video cameras capture home videos and stuff. They're gonna be legacy of great home videos. And one day. When i get my rocky german sit there and head in all credit you know but then also the show came in and took over. So i put my video camera way and it's collected dust ever since you now and But i i you know the whole having obviously the kit you kids and our grandkids. That's my legs on those kids. Look back on long after. I'm gone if they were grandpa. You know look at the school cabin. Look at the score castle. Look at the school farm in a look at businesses that he that we could take advantage of. You want them to build on the success that they have you want them to be interested in in the farm and the land and and and fact that we carved out a really nice little here in this area and this is a great little location. Don't wanna see apartments built on on our land. We wanted to be something that the kids can enjoy In generations kind of joy. And so that. That's the challenge how to put that in place And make sure that the website you can be footprint the roloff this roll off from this raw farm has here You know in history. And what would you say. That would be obviously running on. I think it seventeen seasons. We're about the driveway. The eighteenth season able to see them the done forty years. You know. we've been doing this for the first time. I looked up an old contract. I think we. I went under contract seventeen years ago. Numbers like the when we first started about how to do this. And we did a couple of pilots before the actual real pilot came on is alliance. But i think we're in fifteen years of being on air two thousand six if i'm not mistaken march two that sick Joe how many that our show went for two degree light originally. What would you say that you hope to be the legacy of the show here when it does eventually run its course what do you hope the legacy of little people big world. Why you know. I love reality. Television has always been our docu-dramas is a more accurate reality television. That a game show you know or a you know is that or is that the docudrama where they roughly all the family story lines The terminology but you know we've never won any awards in hollywood for even we've been we've have gotten against book of world records for the longest running reality television family show a look at the title in history so we you know more than the car catching them more than the dodgers you know. Got a lot of episode so we can run every single year since two thousand and six of you know and but hollywood reality television kind of the the bad step travel you know of of of tv and for whatever reason and But we think we've changed the world with little people big world. You know little bit. Well we think had made people say about little people a little different and it certainly has spawned off. Sister shows a kind of a whole genre. There's a whole array of great little people shows out there now both on tlc and other channels that show the everyday life of little doctor's bill and jen klein the little couple on there's On the show right. And they're gonna print now. Okay yeah trust five. Kids trittin hambur. I served on the board of directors with amber years ago on the little people organization. Long history with that family. They're great couple great kid. I don't know all the kids but certainly have a long history with them. They're great little people family. I just love watching trenton. How he does things on his own. It's an action. Fired me to could do that too. I just need to get get get out of my head. Only hire some trips out there. Lipton and pushing things around you know with ingenuity great show and but these shows you know all in little people big world have all collected to really i think help change the decides perspective on people. That are different. Now if you get your head around a little purchase i mean you know up to chaffee your belly be just like you emotionally wanting to live lives in pursuit of happiness Then you can get your head around anybody who looks a little different people that have an injury that are missing limb or are That have other disabilities p from common thing. Maybe some Figuration i think if you can understand that little people see them on tv. They're just like you. And i think they were freak show Then you can get your head around that lived with different and living with difference at the salt reliability liability of boring world if we were all tall dark and handsome short squatty other people. There's no show called average people little world so now the time right so I think the legacy of louisville big world we we were asking anybody can take that away from we were the first regular little people show that just followed the everyday life on and i think that in general society around the globe the whole world every current country That i can imagine showed this show translates as come to me long. Hey i'm your voice in brazil hear my voice in brazil. Translate yeah I hired by the network down there to translate your voice in the brazilian. And that's five on the show is going all over. The world and people are learning that little people. Deputy pre cool you. People in general class of joe job short isn't necessarily something the lactic acid something with and have fun with and but at the same time We're all different and we all you know are out there trying to live life the bat in our best life and that that's important message that we think we've gotten off through the medium of television. Yeah through the show of abs on forever because now we see everything gets restrained hulu and whatever channel it may be these things can live on forever now and i think it will continue to touch so many lives throughout the course of history so kudos to you and your family for for what you guys have managed to accomplish so matt. You're going to be on the legacy. Obviously little people big world. You're going to have a legacy here at the role of form. What do you want the legacy of matt. Roll off the father. What do you want your legacy to be as a dad. You know. I am not expecting my legacy to pay the perfect father. Because i learned it so many things you know being a grandfather even my gosh. I really blew that. When i was a regular father. I wish i. I watched my kids and how they are sometimes. I wish i would've known some of my mistakes back then and aware of them And my my kids are learn from my mistakes. I believe But i really want my legacy. And i'm redoubling down my efforts now as a as a grandpa With my grandkids. And my kids to keep my communication lines open Can't be perfect. I have my moods. I'm on you know have ups and downs bad days like anybody else. But i really do feel like i maintain a good relationship with my kids and the grandkids and wanna continue to work hard and want my legacy to be. I don't know how long i'm gonna go. You know my legacy to be that my whoever remembers me They looked back. Grandpa was built in cold thing that he was there but a good relationship with could sit down. We could talk about anything and He would listen and he would provide advice and he was a good grandpa. Good father of maybe even a great grandpa's we if i'm so lucky to live that long But if not as the grandkid can point. I remember. The grandfather built this stuff yet. Really good stopping and and this will be your third goal around here. You know how to end the show. And i always liked to swallow dances. Y- your your third go around you got you know any anything new to add to it but i gotta ask anyway. What kind of advice do you have that new dad or for that about to be father. Who's out there listening or the be present. Be present and listen on bit. You know grow up to get down on the floor. I do that in here with my grandkid. It's hard for me to on floor. It's not always easy but my biggest advice to to whether the new is to be present and to enjoy with with daylight remember all have different personalities. Not one mole forecast. You think you're going to get them all. The same old doesn't work that way. I learned that the hard way my kids have different interests and different personalities. The absorbed information discipline differently. So you have to treat each of your kids as individuals that are completely different and to on and you have to adapt to them as opposed to trying to get them into your mole very well. I was a. It's an absolute honor to be here at the forum. Thank you for having me here and your first last father. I latest grandfather all the way. Thanks for joining me here again. I i'm honored to be on Back to wrap things up here first class. Father i gotta give a special thank you once again to matt.

Listen it's an honor to have you back here. I know your family has grown. Since the last time you were on the show here you got the four kids but how many grandkids the up to now. I got four grandkids. I've been really busy with that. I I must admit I turn your show your podcast on all the time to get my own advice about what to do because being It's my grandkids. It just kind of exploded one minute. I didn't have any grandkids and two years later. I got four of them so I'm I'm leaning on. I'm leaning on all the advice that you find on your show. I really really enjoy hearing everybody's input and kind of angle on take on how to how to be a father via grandfather's I enjoy. Thank you for putting that out. Not Not and you know what speaking of advice one thing? I think that happens to a lot of happened to me. Like when you become a parent like you finally realize or get a better sense of what your parents went through bringing you up Have you gotten that kind of response for your kids or they come to you for advice now asking you for help? The tables have definitely turned out. I do feel like my relationship with my kids is stronger than ever before For a lot of those reasons But I I'm much better grandfather than I was a father. Just because you know you've been through it and you learn what works and what doesn't work in a job in a grandparent. I'm getting like getting a second chance that license so I'm really really a join it. I'm a lot better listener than I've ever been in my life. I believe because I just enjoy here in the grandkids talk and I enjoy my. Excuse me my kids talk about you. Know their struggles with the grandkids. I had dinner last night. Was Taurean Jackson. Lila GRANDPA's sat back and smiled the whole time while they You know try to really in all these kittens these kids and it's just a really fun a good at wonderful experience. Yeah very cool man. I know we got the new season. A little people big world coming up. You've been doing this for a very long time now. I know you've had some struggles with storylines and stuff like that along the way. How was it filming this new season? Have you made any changes or adjustments to the process at all? Well you're you're right. We've been doing this for a long time. Like fifteen fifteen or sixteen years. We've been feels like we've been filming for Forever and you know there's been ups and downs. There's no doubt about it. You know when you're doing something that long. Even though it's been the same company not say there's been different executives. We come regime after James Common. Gone and come in and they have different. Agenda are different goals for the company. You know they want their programming to be you know more edgier more this or or that's A. We've you know wrote ridden through a lot of different changes. And so sometimes they don't call us to. Hey we want a bigger bang or bigger pop on these episodes all you guys into the producers that are boots on the ground you know start asking you know dice dice your questions and But right now we have an amazing team of people And we Re really like an episode. That are coming on a really good. They're full of really juicy content but at the same time I think they're fair and they're on us. I I have a saying I tell when I have dinner with any of the TLC executives that are new and coming in. I always say with the Roloff family. A truth is greater than fiction. What I mean by that is if you just follow the real actual story of what's really happening going on. You don't need to make anything. So our favorite seasons have been the ones where they're just calling the the real life roelofs in what's happening and usually have the most success with the ratings and what happened. People are most interested in just the actual real life. You know follow of what's going on with the babies and Barrington and the farm and all that so that's my motto has proved a stranger than fiction and the role of household. Well I'll tell you what now you've had your tremendous success with it you got you got an audience. That's very been very engaged with the whole show and have any of your kids. Have any of them ever considered using this to maybe have a spin off? Maybe do a reality show of their own. You know I I yeah. I think that conversation has gone on and it goes on and it happens and we always kind of fall back on little people. Big World May Not you know our main vehicle for telling our story but I think store discussion devout spin offs and things are happening. but you know what little big world is kind of based on the whole family and the whole all the characters and one thing. I learned about reality television. Do you need a lot of characters? dynamics between character. And what have you to really drawing the biggest audience as possible so if you spin off and you just have to us you know. Usually the people people like I watched the show separately because Jackson. You know my grandson. Because I love amy or I love Chris you know and I wouldn't watch genesis. I think they just try to keep all the characters in the best we can. We've lost art pursue other opportunities. We're sad to see him go but on save always felt. There was enough to the court Character based on to kind of keep the show going it. Fenner successful is Everett. So we got a whole bunch of new episodes Coming out here shortly and we've been working hard on him for the last almost eight months. Yeah we've been really busy telling our stories giving everybody an update so Yeah we're looking forward to the the new season coming out and by the way we're we're contract for another season so we'll we'll be busy doing this for quite a while. Wow Yeah that's awesome matt. Now listen I know. It's been quite a while now since you're divorced. How have the kids kind of responded to the whole you know divorce and your relationship now with Karen are there any? Oh wedding bells in the future for you to whether there's no immediate wedding bells yet. But there are on aiming side in Chris L. Are you've got a wedding planning that they're doing for? I think three thousand twenty one karen and I are kind of waiting to let their excitement. Play out on man But no nobody built plan right yet. I hope one day that there are and the probably will be Very close we enjoy each other's company and Friendship Immensely And we're in a word from you know Dating and having fun together and live in our best lives as we like to say have a great time with the grandkids. Fortunately my kids seem to really accept Karen very very well that we spent a lot of time together. She's a great sort of circuit they call it cha-cha and The grandkids love applause spending time with her and she loves spending time. You know what I'm saying to Karen the other day. It's so nice that she loves Hanging out with my grandkids would be miserable. If she's like oh come. Do we have to have babysit duty again? We have to hang out with the kids again but nets quite the opposite. She really looked forward. sets up these encountered were were. She'll call German Audrey. Hey we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA come over play games at your house tonight. And and we're you know we're GONNA we're willing to take the kids tonight in while you guys go on a date night. So she's very very active in Not just accepting the kids the grandkids but really setting things up and getting me involved in Matt. You're putting your computer and phone away tonight. You're going to be playing games and reading to the grandkids tonight. That's what you're doing okay. That's what I'm doing. I appreciate the way she is involved yourself and gets me involved. Yeah that's good stuff. Matt now I did pick up a copy of your ex. Wife's book getting in preparation for today's interview I'm a big reader and I gotta be honest. It was a bit of a Chore. To get through for me but I did notice. She does quite a little bit of shade at you throughout the book if you get a chance to read the book and what was your response to that. I didn't get a chance to read the book and I was disappointed. I think probably not disappointed. Maybe not we thinking I stick the book which really fair to me. I thought that amy the book for me knowing her real life story and a lot of things in between I thought there was some disingenuous nature of to the book which means a pretty Genuine Person Typically issue but I think that that she left out some pretty major parts of her life That would have thrown a little more balancing into the whole story You know I think she did throw shade at me. I don't think it was really fair. and it was hurtful it was actually very hurtful and took me a wild kind of process it and absorb bitten. I wish you wouldn't have left out. You know parts. I would've changed people's perspective on our marriage and the reason that our marriage You know had troubles and saying so. What for her to leave out very very major important. Parts of her life That certain insect affecting me substantially and our marriage substantially I don't think that was fair to herself or to me or or two telling her story so That that part of the book and then you know. Of course you picked on me and I understand that you know the marriage fell apart. We've been the end. We grew apart. Emmys a wonderful person and You Know Race. Four wonderful amazing kids together so you know. I looked back at her marriage with a lot of success You know I I. I think that we're just trying right. Now enjoy the grandkids and the farm and and get along. Well I'll tell you what what one of the things here about social media age that we're in right now. Is that a lot of people. They're quick to judge everybody without all the facts. And like you're saying that there's more to the story here and I. I know that you you have been getting hammered here near on social media for some of this stuff into all that there is more to this story Have you ever considered maybe doing a book of your own and maybe shedding some light on? What actually did happen because the marriage to fall apart or is that just not style now a long soul-searching about that And run through in my head. Some of the things that stories that I know that some truth that I would like to be out there And that may happen one day. I don't I don't know I haven't ruled it out completely but you know after watching. Amy's book come out and Her perception the truth be so sort of misleading. I think that You know I just decided it's probably not gonNA happen for me. I tell the story through. The show is enough for me. Right now But I never say never I haven't ruled out Social media is is. You know it's hard. I think we've grown everybody in the Roth family has grown really thick skin were used. You know people being really Tough on US and and You know I think they call them trolls or whatever and they come up with the the draw these conclusions and you just want to scream and say if only you knew this or if only you knew that or you know.

I didn't get a chance to about your trip overseas to Iraq with the military because I was really fascinated by that story. What was the genesis of that trip? And what was the experience like view that drip actually? I made three trips to Iraq during a heated war Shortly after the main conflict and The three trips were changed my life forever the appreciation for the military guys on what they're doing over there and my pride for the US and then you know really try to help other people. The genesis of the trip was a friend of mine. The helicopter pilot over there Who has a little? Persian daughter was on patrol in in Baghdad. Draw family that had a dwarfism on three of the kids. I think it was a family of five. Three kids at all had very severe dwarfism so he called me from Baghdad from it basically said Hey. Can you come over? And and I'm like on the phone and you're calling from Iraq. You know bombs going on in the background. I'm like and you want me to come over. You know what he wanted me to His we gotta get these kids medical treatment showing that started a long process probably took six months to get orders from the State Department for me to be able to go over and I made my first trip over. Snuck around in Humvees and rats guys with machine guns everywhere and they stuck me to this families How we had contractor pulled out little portable x ray equipment doctor x rays and then once. I got the xrays live. Bring those back to the states and lineup doctors here so I got some doctors from the bay area. California back East and Wisconsin put the team of an anesthesiologist and so doctors that were willing to go over they. You know. The government's didn't want the kids to come to the states for their very complicated surgeries and instead they wanNA does to go over and train the Iraqi doctors so I got the doctors up in. May brought him over there and got the Iraqi doctors together and perform these operations and literally all these kids that have been hit by bombs and they're burnt and had various things You Know Barnes have been amputated but not correctly are doctors. Were able to do surgery for a couple of days on a whole bunch of kids. Not just the little people but a whole a whole bunch of kids in the little village that we're in and then them fascinating on my third trip over. I was able to pull the kids back silo able to get their papers. They need really complicated operations. That could only really done here in the states on the third trip to bring them back to the states and get them the medical treatments that they really needed so three very interesting. That's the short version of it But it was a harrowing scary clip and gave me immense immense rich back for Take all military over there. Bang Bang shoot 'em up now. They're over there really focused on training doctors and getting people You know the stand on their own two feet and have technology so that that that push for educational component and for building their communities with really impressive. Jamais wasn't about blowing up. It was really the missions that they pushed me of how we're really about Getting the community in that country to support themselves to take care of their own people. And that's what impressed me the most. Yeah that's incredible Matt. Yeah I have nothing but respect for our military. Bring a lot of veteran veteran. Dads come on the show here and it so That's awesome that you're able to go over there and make a difference and another thing that I've seen that you had done online you reach out. I know there was a story about the boy from Australia. That was being bullied. And I know you had reached out to him somewhere online. I seen it. You offer them out to the farm and stuff like that. Did you ever end up connecting with the kid I can? I can exit with his mother. She was very very excited because of course they watch the little people show little people big world show over there And so we've had exchanged several messages and I'm really just making sure that she has support That they know that they're welcome to come to the farm. I think at some point here. They're going to be coming over the United States. Go to Disneyland. WanNa make sure that they swing by and give the boy you know a real firsthand view of what little people can do and put your heart and mind to it Adult this farm here until I wanted to know. I've been through some of the exact same emotional feelings that he went through or he's going through that nine years old. I remember those feeling very precisely and You know I just want to encourage them so we haven't touched I hope we get to meet in person. I hope I can continue to encourage them along way. Because that would pretty heartbreaking to see him and you know some people think threw shade at a are some. You know at the mom for you. Know putting out that emotional Video but I really supporter. I think she's doing writing she without wit's end she's got your young nine year old boy who threatened suicide. She didn't know what else she could do. I don't think she knew that the video goes viral is dead but good for her to get that out there and be kind of kicking screaming and doing everything you can to advocate. She's had a long history of advocating for her son so I'm not only encouraging him but I really want to encourage her as well and don't going allow any mama shaming about The two sides of the truth. She's she's a tiger exciting for her son. And I appreciate that and I think He's going to do just fine. Even though there's so many different pitfalls of social media and the Internet age that we live in here I mean some of the good things are that people like you can connect with somebody like him just through something like that so There are some positive sides to it. Let let me rain this back into you as a dad here Matt Now. I have four kids. My youngest is my only girl. She's five years old now. I'm already dreading when she's going to be hit. That dating seeing your daughters all grown up. You've been there done that. What was it like for you when your daughter first started hitting that dating scene. How'd you handle that scary? You know my my daughter was an amazing. She's still edgy. That amazing individuals who straight out A student she was always focused on her studies Show we like to say that Molly was kind of the parent in the room. Most of Her life in when she was the youngest ever You know two or three years all just always the one that really had Iraq together so when she got to the dating world and went off to college in the star dates. You start dating a little bit later. but found the man she loved and Got Married and some got married and now she looks and works up. We're just waiting for grandkids. You know from her. Jaw Up there in They're up in the Spokane Area Washington. But Molly didn't require much worry. Let me tell you that. Because she was so solid and Any grant has a song called straight ahead and that was what the Wedding John. You know I played for Molly. Her Wedding Tamale with just always really straight ahead. So I'd like to take credit for how wonderful of persons that she came out but unfortunately I can't take credit. I think she just a you know. I guess genetically speaking maybe but Xu just an amazing person Right off the bat like as a whole my kids and so Maybe there's a little Maybe there's a little credit in. There's on more but I think my kids grew up on this farm and they were exposed to them you know. Both Ambien is exposed as many opportunities at fossil and they all turned out to be amazing. Kids Yeah Awesome Matt and you know I did see on instagram. There you guys had a family trip to Disney. What was that experience like for you to go there with all the kids at Disneyland is not for the fate of heart reality. Tv You know pretty hectic. We brought lots of lot You know Distant factor and stuff and kidd were a little young but Tori my daughter-in-law just Disney fanatic and so They were GONNA go regardless and took care. I said that will help. And so I had GRANDPA duty while everybody else went on the ride watching the little one. We had a two month old at the time but everybody came through it and had a great time. Jackson got to meet his hero. Buzz light year and It was just really a wonderful wonderful experience at a week away. down Disney. How you can help it have fun at Disneyland Ride.

Hell On Earth: The Timeline & The Clown In America And Handler Lester Roloff.

"Do you feel as if reality has been altered at something? Or someone has interfered with our collective present moment. Then this is the podcast for you. This is the sound of duality. This has the sound of Dean T- molecule as it travels through your body opening you to the knowledge that you seek. It's also the sound of sheep and bliss wandering this universe and the concept of Saunder as you play a lead role created by these two states of being full of view and take a seat. This is a podcast of all touch. And all you see the guests. Are everything in between enjoy. The ride. Enjoy the duality of each state of being and the very thin line between each all right. Everybody this is drew and this is the pull up a pew podcast. Sorry it's been so long but there's been quite a bit of Things going on personally obviously in the world at the moment with US dealing with the corona virus and south which comes with this. So it's you know makes it a little bit more difficult to get people together. You know to do anything Within a you know the space together where we have to do it. Separately then he got to get everybody coordinated Not to mention that Jessica was unable to continue on. Fortunately she had a major medical Emergency and I don't want to really get into the personal issues of it but it was apparently very serious But I also just you know again. Probably it's paranoia but I find it very suspicious that this episode occurred while we were doing this podcast which is really about my own life. Her life other people that went through this hell on earth as we literally call it. Which is which is what it is. Okay if there's no other words to Really describe it so I've been in contact with quite a few more people You know that have joined the facebook page. I invite everybody to please go to the pool. Up a Pew Pied Cast facebook page Join up in there and we can discuss. I'm still looking for more people. They'll begin interview Because you know we're talking thousands upon thousands of people. It's just unfortunate because a lot of them as I've said before are just so mentally drained They are psychologically destroyed that they can't even leave their own homes. Forget the virus talking about even before this that. They can't leave their homes. Their agoraphobia is they are completely and utterly depressed a lot of them suicidal. I've mentioned that I lost a few friends to suicide. Not long after the raid had occurred and and we were back home here in south Florida and so it took me a long time as mentioned On the first podcast or maybe on the second one but on being able to deal with these issues I kinda just put them in the back of my mind but it for sure had an effect on everything moving forward in my life whether it was the last high school. I had to go to Before graduation which was the fourth And obviously you know help after escaping the Bethel boys home called there is no other word In fact if you do any research and that's what we're GONNA do today. I'm actually GONNA throw at you a massive amount of information and cited material so that you know the couple of naysayers here and there that I've already figured out are either friends with you know the fountains or are completely instill programmed brainwashed because they knew what they were doing this. This was not some podunk operation. But would I have figured out on my own and I'm going to say a allegedly because I cannot prove this but that the fountains were patsies and all of this they you know from Herman's own admission of being here went attic pickup off the streets By Lester Roloff. And had his entire life turned around brought to the Lord and the Lord spoke to him and you know brought him in the direction of creating these youth ministries but none of that applies to him. It was all through Lester. Roloff going all the way back into the nineteen forties and then before that we have and other massively tragic incident here up in North Florida where the graves of hundreds of boys have been found from a youth facility for around the turn of the century. Then moving into the teens twenties thirties forties That were you know. Obviously physically abused or tortured to kill. But a lot of you I just don't want to really get into that right now. But so you can look that up on your own yeah There's plenty of news articles concerning that so anyways roloff had mingled with some of the people that had run that location so he'd learned from from this place obviously the evil that he was going to spread throughout the Well the United States and beyond even to other countries as gonNA explain a little bit later on but let me just give you a couple just a little bit of a time line here. Nineteen forty four Roloff. Starts his radio. Ministry family. Altar program was the name of it. Nineteen forty six. He founded the Park Avenue Christian Day School in one thousand nine hundred fifty four. He Purchases K. W. B. U. radio station in fifty six. The city of refuge opens in Lexington and as far as men and boys in Nineteen fifty seven the jubilee home for women opens in Texas And I'm sorry I meant to say between forty four and fifty six. Those were Amends institution that he had opened their in Lexington. The city of refuge in nineteen fifty eight. The Lighthouse Ministry opens on the Gulf coast waterway in sixty four. The city of refuge located near Rio Grande Valley. Sit Up and sixty six. The city of refuge grew older men. Moved to Culloden Georgia. The younger boys remained in the Rio Grande Valley in nineteen sixty eight. The one you guys have already heard about the Rebecca home for girls in Corpus Christi Texas. It's open sixty eight. The Bethesda home for girls in Hattiesburg Mississippi is open. And if you notice that those two together important from Texas to Mississippi is a reason for that in sixty nine the people's Baptist Church was founded all of the homes were moved to the six hundred acres that Roloff purchased upon the erection of the new buildings. In Two thousand eleven the Roloff Ministries are still an operation. Okay so I'm GonNa go through this. It's kind of haphazard. Okay and I apologize for that but there's really no other way to explain this just because of the amount of information here is overwhelming. So let's just start year nineteen seventy-one Roloff oppose the Texas Department of Public Welfare. Which was the Texas Department of Human Services? Rohloff would not comply with orders to have the Rebecca and anchor homes licensed and conforming to the department secular regulations to avoid closure role oftens associates oppose the order. Considering it a breach of church and state separation. The controversy resulted in charges of neglect and brutality. So even going back then. But that's of course. Only what had been figured out as far as the government is concerned or or anybody of any type of authority. This abuse. Brutality had been going on since the forties fifties sixties in seventy six the Texas Childcare Licensing Act became law stating that children under eighteen must be placed in childcare facilities licensed by the age s Roloff and his supporters again refused to comply and despite favorable reports and the facilities by Attorney General John Hill. I wanted to keep remembering these names of people here. She's me within government that helped Roloff along the way. And there's a huge reason for this so the facilities and again attorney John Hill and state welfare inspectors. Dhs served a restraining order in. May of that year even it's in conflict Wiley. Fate Cameron of the Roloff Homes New Beginnings. They started off in nineteen seventy million. Fake Cameron run the Rebecca home for less Roloff. So they start running that that home that we've spoken up before in Nineteen eighty-two upon roelofs death which we're GonNa talk about the cameras takeover completely in nineteen eighty-five cameras move the Rebecca home for girls and anchor home for boys to Missouri in one thousand nine hundred eighty six George Bush governor of Texas invited Wylie Cameron to Texas to meet with his faith based Committee. Bush introduces faith based initiative. Cameron joined the Board of Directors of T. A. C. C. A. Which is the Texas Organization is Christian childcare agencies in roll-off schools became accredited? The Rebecca home was moved back from Missouri to Texas Soon Cameron. Schools are back in trouble for allegations of child abuse. Oh yeah go figure right. But that is key. Okay that George. Bush allowed him to come back to Texas and operate without being regulated. You must make note of that because everything that I'm explained to you now not only applies to today. But there's this massive web everybody Occa- that you know even includes Epstein and Weinstein. What occurred out in Hollywood with the children there? These schools are operating for children. And what were the facilities truly operating as I've always mentioned about the compartmentalization about certain people within each group home only knowing what they need to know on a need to know basis and then of course have people up the top that were dealing directly with the politicians that were allowing them to operate without any licensing all the way to George Bush who obviously became the president of the United States because there are an incredible amount of stories of men that when they were kids and had belonged to some of these groups found themselves drugged and woken up on a plane flying to either different states governors mansions or to the White House. And this is fact. You can look this up. There were many many quote parties thrown at the White House during different administrations that occurred boys under the age of eighteen now. They didn't explain why they would be there At least that I can remember. Maybe they had made up some type of Excuse that the boys were receiving some kind of award or I don't know but look. They were brought there for a reason. And if any of you have been following along and understand what you're hearing and what you're listening to hear. These parties were put on for Congressman for different people And forced to use the word allegedly sexually abused while at these parties Enact these locations which went on and on and on with the Bethel Baptist boys and girls home really becoming the combination the crown jewel within all of these different operations that got close and then opened then moved but they moved a lot of them to Mississippi. Like I told you before because of the laws because Mississippi and some of these different states you could sign over your child and it literally was like an adoption like it stood up in the same Legality of giving your child over to an organization or somebody else as long as you signed The you know the paperwork you essentially were signing your child over and it was the same as an adoption. So that organization had full control over everything in anything that occurred to you and they were able to use corporal corporal punishment against you now. I wish he was only corporal punishment. I mean that's nothing. That's that's child's play anyways. Let's let's move on here. So Cameron was jailed for refusing to turn over records to investigators. His wife Faye was barred for life from working with kids in Texas half the detain girls were sent home to their parents. The other half packed up and moved back to Missouri. To boarding and IMPR- improvised dormitory on the property of an unfilled unaffiliated yet similar home for troubled boys while looking for a new permanent location to resume operations. I mean just that paragraph alone is creepy In two thousand one. The Cameron's purchase property in pace Florida. Another state where they could operate without regulation or interference under the umbrella of the floored Association of Christian childcare agencies so again the connection between religion and these face based organization because then they would be able to fall under the guise again of being non-profit. They're unregulated They could get away with so much Again take the boys take the girls and pretty much. Use Them for anything they want. And in today's Day and age even have these operations working underneath what are called Wasp programs not just in the United States which there are thousands of them but outside of the United States and I am getting ahead of myself but I just wanted to mention that that we will get to that so these organizations are still operating. Now they're not to the degree of battle with everything that occurred there. Like I said it culminated there. That's crown jewel. These other organizations learn to use the healthcare system and You know military tight school in as far as organization is the way that we would file Again using religion as a Facade so then we have the Bob and Betty Willis Bethesda home for girls which was established in nineteen sixty seven dope in in Hattiesburg Mississippi again. Mississippi Burton Dorothy Barnwell. Operate it. In nineteen seventy Bob and Betty Willis take over running the girls home in nineteen eighty two. It's the potential home for girls. Pregnant girls were beaten and ridiculed for having sex out of wedlock. You can look this up. It was on a New York. Times article back from one thousand nine hundred eighty two march fifth Homes for inmates. Tell of beatings. I'm sorry I've acce inmates Tele beating so this acidy with the The girls there that were being kept nine hundred ninety. Two a lawsuit filed against Willis for beating pregnant girls former residents of quote Christian home for troubled girls asserted in the lawsuit that they were beaten denied adequate meals and brainwashed. Of course I mean that. Is the main thread going through everything here about becoming programmed which was invented and used to great success by the three letter agencies? Okay I I don't even want to mention the names we're GonNa get flagged so but you can pretty much guests who I'm talking about when you talk about M. K. Ultra. Which of course used to be a so called conspiracy theory until it came out Under Foia Act that it indeed occurred and was all real. So y'all need to understand that These things occur and a lot of people want to look the other way this because they're so horrific just like the things going on today between our government the deep state and a lot of what again is going on with the connection between Epstein. The you know horrific people out of Hollywood the Patios out there which Corey Feldman was brave enough to point out all of them. The man is not lying is best. Friend Corey Haim great actor. Another kid again committed suicide because of this. He just didn't do it because he felt like it. He did it because he was sexually abused to the point that again you was Adelaide Using drugs he just couldn't deal with it just like anybody. Also it'd be in that situation and Feldman tried to put out a free movie It was even streaming. This was recent and they shut it down because he accused Charlie Sheen of being one of the people. And I have a feeling that was a group that Shut down the stream so nobody could see the actual movie which is a shame. So but I'm sure they'll get back up for people to watch fusing and again you. Just gotTa keep moving that same situation over into politics and then over into the elites like the epsteins and many people that you would have no idea because you think that they are somebody that they are not and that's because they are actors they are acting. That is what they do for a living is to lie to you in essence when they are acting in a movie so. I hope you understand the direct correlation of. What's going on so anytime you hear them. Speaking during an interview you have no idea if they are playing a role that they are making up which usually have the time. They are because a lot of amused method acting. And it's very difficult to get out of method acting even to move into another role. It takes them a long period of time and a lot of people that are Christian claim that this is them being inundated with spirits and demons. He not take over their body. I can't speak to that. Don't know anything about that but it certainly you know look. I would say this. They certainly looked that way. That's for sure. And if you notice a lot of them aren't looking too good right now. They're looking a little bit sick in not even talking about corona virus sick. There's something going on there. I think a lot of you should notice make note of and we might actually find out about some of that. You know what's what's going on there. Anyway let's get back to the the story in the time line here so in one thousand nine hundred five. The Bethesda. Home for girls closes in eighty five. Ob- and Betty Willis overlooked another abusive boarding school called the Christian Life Boarding Academy we think just sprout up like weeds in eighty seven Christian life boarding academy closed for abuse. But was it open for two years? Bob and Betty Willis then have the Mountain Park Academy in Eighty Seven. Bob and Betty Willis Open that Mountain Park Wayne County. Missouri is where it was willing to open the park sometime after he began buying the schools. One hundred and sixty four acre tract in Wayne County in August of eighty seven until that year he had operated the Christian Life Boarding Academy south of Hattiesburg Mississippi. So there's a bunch of cited articles here that I'll put in the show notes for anybody to look up so that they understand everything you're being told here is cited and true Backed up by many people and have court cases cited so on and so forth. So there's there's no more than anybody can say as far as this stuff not being true. The abuse Both physically and sexually You know being flown around which I'm going to get to you here in a moment And as far as what was going on with the compartmentalization within the different groups between the people that were there that heads of different departments. You know the left hand wouldn't know what the right hand was doing that. Some of them were just really actually thought it was true that they were just kinda there for a You know fire and brimstone type preaching Home for Wayward Children That they would use corporal punishment Blah Blah Blah and. That's the role they fill but they didn't understand what was going on behind their back where the younger children were being taken in flown to these different locations and used for. Let's use your own imagination but you can find these Interviews all over the place. You can probably still find some on Youtube. But of course they've taken the majority if not all of them down by now you might still be able to find a few but outlived. Leave that to you But please try. You should be able to find information online. And that's all you have to do is look up Boys and young girls Speak of being brought to you either governors mansions or to the White House for specific parties. Where they were abused Annual find a lot more information than you probably WanNa find so now we have the McNamara's both former residents of the roloff homes for adults took over the Rebecca home. After graduating the roll off program. Get graduating network. So of course. Now you have people that are already programmed and completely brainwash taking over the schools which makes sense because that's the best way to keep the lies moving forward and to again keep law enforcement department of Health Services within all the different states not understanding. What's going on? They might hear something going on at one school. They go there and they've already been tipped off. Believe me because people in local government and again that were getting use of these facilities would know what's going on. They would tick them off so they could pretty much do whatever. They wanted on the property by making changes. Let's say they're moving. Certain articles or property or people so in two thousand one the legislation allowing private faith-based homes to operate without state regulation came up for renewal and was not renewed Cameron close to home rather than accept the state regulation oversight and to avoid legal implications in association with the Old Rebecca home. The McNamara's in Cameron's assumed independence from the people's Baptist. Church renaming the home. New Beginnings Girls Academy just another one and another name. Wylie Cameron remained president but had little to do with daily operations of the renamed home McNamara and his wife remained as non site directors. Eventually Wylie Cameron resigned his position. Giving the McNamara's full control in two thousand and seven abuse allegations began to surface at New Beginnings Prompting Investigations. The home was moved from Pace Florida to the Russell Missouri to evade state interference. I apologize if I completely messed up the lever sell. I think it's loud Russell. Anyways either way Missouri to evade state interference and expand their enterprise. Shortly after moving. They also began admitting teenage boys. This is in two thousand seven folks so now let's move on to the Jack. Patterson Reclamation Ranch and seventy two patterson meets Roloff in seventy two again patterson becomes employed by Roelof at the Lighthouse Academy in Corpus Christi Texas. He stays there for three years in seventy five after he's been programmed. Patterson opens up the Reclamation Ranch Empire Alabama he also opens the Rachel Academy in a nearby county in two thousand and eleven. Jack Patterson is still in operation at his new location. Why do you think these places are still operating? They could only be operating if they have specific political fake years throughout time and again. Most of your Congressman Women State Senators have been in their positions of power for many decades. Because we are complete and utter morons for continuing to elect the same people over and over and over again. You don't even think about it. You just walk into the stall like the sheep that we are and just click on the same person I mean. And that's how they get away with this and that's why they have tens of millions not hundreds of millions of dollars in their bank accounts. Just look it up. Folks they walk in there with you. Know fifteen thousand dollars in their bank account and then within a few years they literally have tens of millions of dollars that happens by being paid off by organizations like this or political action committees called packs. I'm sure most of you have probably heard of those. But that's what they are. They're political action. Committees that work on behalf of different interest groups. Like the say the oil and Gas Institute or the Religious institutions. Like this. So you're five. Oh One C. Threes and again. It just goes on and on but they get paid. Okay they slip that in their pocket and then we re elect them like the fools that we are and this just keeps on going. So there's nobody really to blame but us our generation from generation acts. I don't have kids but you know got plenty of friends that do that are within that age range. There may be having trouble with them. They're sending them off to these facilities ninety five percent of them are parts of these wasp. Groups are still organizing around this type of punishment and again. It's not quite to that degree but it still completely horrific as far as the physical abuse mental and psychological sexual abuse going on in two thousand ten a fire guts to three story dormitory on the property. Formerly named Bethesda home which is originally of the Roloff enterprises before remodeling was completed in a facility renamed reclamation ranch in two thousand eleven evidence points to Dr Patterson moving to Michigan and reopening reclamation ranch. These people just move around my cockroaches Seriously now we've got Mac Ford the new Bethany home for boys and girls and seventy two MAC. Ford Meets Lester Roloff than funny. All these people keep meeting Lester Roloff. Who Do you really think Lester? Roloff is who do you think he works for? Why do all these people have? These chance encounters. There's always happens to be this one particular person that there's a great documentary. I can't remember the name of it that was on net flicks not too long ago and I can't remember the guy's name but he runs the Christian based part of the government where they have the national prayer breakfast every year and the guy had been doing it for you know decades upon decades decades and his name is brought up all the time but again blurring that line of Church and state that that money keeps rolling in from these televangelists in all of these organizations can that go directly into these politicians pocket. So again they can do whatever they want and the politicians allegedly can do whatever they want with these boys and girls and I have to let you use your own imagination. I unfortunately can't describe any of it but again you can go and look up the different people that have made the claims and hear them yourself word for word. These people are not lying. There are not making up these stories. This all occurred as spoken today by me and as retold in the stories from these kids that you can go and what these kids actually these adults now. So in seventy two after being ordained into the ministry by Roelof Ford opens the new home for wayward girls in Arcadia Louisiana in nineteen seventy-eight Mac. Four opens new Bethany home for boys in Long Street. Louisiana in two thousand eleven ole and King is still operating the second chance ranch. All these places are so operating folks in seventy nine Ford is unable to avoid clashes with the bane veal parish sheriff's office legal documents regarding appeals charges etc are file some federally going back as far as seventy nine perhaps earlier in eighty one. Larry Rep here is arrested at the new. Bethany boys home in Long Street. Louisiana extension of the girls home in Arcadia for cruelty to children then released a fifteen thousand dollar bond in eighty two long street. Home is closed down and the boys records destroyed to keep child protective services from finding and interviewing them the new Bethany boys home is thereafter move to property purchased by Mac Ford in Waterberg South Carolina the appointed director being own seeing and other Ford and Roelof associate eighty two MAC. Ford opens another boys home. In water. Borough South Carolina operated by Olen King in eighty four. The new Bethany boys home is raided by the Colton County Sheriff's Office due to allegations of abuse. Olen king said to be a former employee of guests. Who Lester Roloff as well as a few of other of the male employees there say the same thing. We're all arrested attorneys for the Kings took an hour and forty five minutes. Explaining the use of handcuffs rope end holding cells. Let that sink in David. Ardell former school principal of new Bethany home for girls school principal that's laughable and associate pastor of new Bethany Baptist. Church defended the school and set. Its sole purpose was rehabilitation king later pleads no contest and was convicted of unlawful imprisonment given a two year suspended sentence in five years probation for unlawful imprisonment of children. Two years suspended sentence and probation. Let that sink in Gay Olen King. Second chance ranch in Nineteen eighty-eight. He opens a second chance ranch. In Danbury North Carolina run by the King Family Ministries in two thousand eleven as I said earlier. It's still in operation public records. Show that Olin kings boys home is still operating. Penny Ford Daughter of Mac and Thelma Ford Married. Olen King's son and works at the second chance ranch. Now we get the Hermit Fountain in the Bethel Boys Academy in Nineteen seventy seven. Roman Fountain works for Roloff in the Rebecca girls home in Corpus Christi taxes. Since I explained earlier Herman was picked up off the streets of New York as a teenager by Lester. Roloff Herman Fountain is incredibly. Let's just say of a very low. I Q but the man is also charismatic. When you look at the man he scares the shit out of you if you're if you're a kid the way that he speaks the way that his eyes are again at. It's very difficult to explain what this guy is able to do to you. Psychologically and I think a lot of it especially if you've already started where you're hearing him when I was strapped to the bed for three days and had to listen to him twenty four hours a day each day on a loop about him being a part of God's army with Armageddon was coming any day and we were going to be the army to rise up to battle during Armageddon and that's what was being drilled into our heads as part of the programming Technique and I believe this day that I really do. I've changed my really as far as being able to look into this really drill down. Herman was Patsy. This guy really believe stuff okay. And that's why they were able to keep this place open. Herman was making his money by putting the kids out on. You know that I don't WanNA use the word the word crew if you look up on Youtube you can look up a bunch of different things on Beth. Oh Boys And the Ray did occurred in one nine hundred eighty eight there but you can hear what they call them what you were told to. Do you work from six. Am until APM either sitting on a little rock and shipping bricks all day long You know digging massive holes and filling them back up again or working on the grounds of other people's where you would make his money because we would be doing Construction work or whatever at a specific location and then of course Herman would get paid on. Top of all the money that he was getting from the children's families that they were targeting from these wealthy areas that I had come from Jessica come from some of the others. There was at least six or seven of us there at one time that was from the area that I was from and I don't really want to get into that of about the wealth and all these different things. There's really no point but just understand that. That was the reason why because it was very easy for them to use techniques of drilling into these parents because of tough love and how. Oh God how? Evil that organization is and the Hugs Not Drugs Organization which was literally run by drug addicts and bipedal files. I it it. That's a whole other. Show folks. Okay so we'll get into that at another time. In nineteen seventy eight hermit. Fountain Opens Bethel Boys Academy in Lusa Dale Mississippi in two thousand eleven fountains are still in operation under a different name. Now are associated with the wasps. WanNa make sure that was clear. That's W. W. A. S. P. S. Explain what that stands for Urine. Just a little bit in eighty. Eight director of a fundamentalist children's home and two assistants were indicted by state grand jury today on charges of assaulting officers who raided the home June thirteenth and took custody of children said to have been abused and neglected. Don't forget folks if you've listened to the series already. They were tipped off three days before this occurred by Congress I had given testimony. I was as a minor so that they would be able to put together a case not just made. There was some others as well but because I'd actually fiscally escaped with one other boy and successfully had gotten away without getting caught and brought back. I was able to speak to the Lusa. Dale Police Department. Who are actually very nice. Us showed the showed US books after ebooks of of kids that had beaten so badly. Excuse me it is just brought tears. My is just looking at it and knowing what I'd already just gone through Which get to but you know when when we escaped hours was just smarter than they were in most of the kids there. You know a lot of them. Abdomen graduated high school. Or let alone. Even the ninth grade a lot of them At kill their their parents. One kid there for that. So you had kids from all different Areas of and with different Coping mechanisms and survival skills and luckily the year before this occurred I had done on course out of Alaska on how to survive in the Wilderness. It was a six week course. This was an accredited course. Once you're done you're certified you could actually Teach people how to how to do this. So March eighty-seven is one. I had approximately ran away. I was the first in many many years just due to making one decision and that was to outsmart them by going where they least expect it. And that was the swamp so I had also sneaked out some matches from the from the The dining hall area was a couple of weeks before that because I knew that I wasn't going to run for the town if I was able to get out along with the other boys that I wanted to get out. I was going to go straight to the swamp and just use whatever I could you know. Learn and remember redundancy worked out very very well But we had to stay out there for three weeks and it was only able to get one other out unfortunately so I taking those matches knowing. I'd have to be able to bill the fire on a very wet environment. I know how to start a fire without matches. But that's an would would have been very tough to do And I wouldn't have been able to figure out how to do that under those conditions with everything being so moist that time of year we were also getting rain which is a good thing because then we were able to collect some rain water In order to drink but you know again was very hard as far as starting fires you know is everybody sees on. Tv of twisting and turning like screw the to stick with the twine Easier said than donning you know can do it. But it's it's not the preferred method at very difficult. You can use a shoelace And would but quite a of other things that you need to do so look at the point is I had matches. That was the only thing That I had in order to help us I had found a trash can. Lid a metal trash can lid and we turned it over. That's what we collected rainwater and then poured them I. Would I would. These large leaves that we picked off and unused Like not twine. But I'm talking like a vine sorry like vice a tie the bottom of them into cones and pour the water into them and then we could just kinda set him up against The roots of the mangrove areas and stuff The different trees and the Water Upright is what I'm trying to say and then we'd be able to drink it. You know after that is far as food or get to that but there was a walnut tree not too far outside of the swamp but we really didn't want to leave there so we just did it at night. A couple of times to get to those Get those walnuts but what you're taught in these survival schools is you start with what are called twitty's and then you go up. The twits twigs sticks so on up all the way until you get logs and those are just a tiny tiny little things that used start a fire. And that's the name they give to them. These cute little names you know the twinkies would be tiny tiny little pieces of wood. And then you have some type of Very very Volatile material beneath that like Shavings from from would underneath there and where to start a fire so anyways The biggest fear really was water moccasins or snakes that were in the swamp he got understand again lucid L. I didn't even know what it's like today but back then. This is the middle of nowhere literally and I don't even remember how many miles away the city was but it was quite a quite a distance. But we weren't GonNa go there then you had to worry about the bacteria in the water All the stagnant pools so we had to wait to get rain water that we did collect in that that trash can lid That was turned over. I'd rather put up with whatever You know at wash that down the best I could but there's still would have been bacteria in it but it was still better than drinking the swamp water. Y- you wouldn't have wanted to do that. You would have gotten sick immediately but what I did know is about duck. We and it's a superfood if you can find it and you do find it in those areas and we were able to find you. It's kind of like a grain. Algae LOOKING STUFF. It covers the water surface Looks like a vivid green carpet of Moss. you can scoop it up. You don't Wanna eat it raw But it is very very nutritious in that raw form but you don't Wanna eat it that way because of course again you've got tons of bacteria that can make you sick if you diarrhea and dehydration. So how do you prepare? Well you just basically filter it and you kind of filter it with some cloth. We did with our shirts that worked as as cloth over a pot the pot was the trash can lids. So you gathered that duck weed Hand place it over the shirt Lowering the dirty water to seep through. And then you have a decent amount of duck weed ready for cooking and then he basically just cook it basically in in that Lid and he would kill all the bacteria and again it gave you all the nutrients that you really needed along with the walnuts I mean we lost a lot of weight draws me in three weeks in only being able to do that but look I'm here so that's all it's really important You Know Really. When you're a situation like that you just gotTa be aware of what your weaknesses are and limitations and hopefully if you're with some other people you delegate out to them what might be your weakness and then you do and run. What are your strengths or you delegate authorities. That's what you do as a leader you delegate authorities out to other people you know that they have a strength in You know if you're smart enough to do that to start with in running a little organization if you're ever in a situation like that You're lost in the woods or you're just pick a situation right but that's how you want to do things. It's very very simple. You don't WanNa be a tyrant you don't want to make all the decisions but you also don't want to immediately become quote a democracy and his vote on everything. It just doesn't work that way. Okay because usually the majority of the group. They're not going to know what they're doing. They'RE NOT GONNA VOTE. So you've got to use your skills if you know what you're doing and if ever been through any of these situations like this and delegate authority but you also have to admit and know what your weaknesses are so you can find somebody that's able to take up You know the slack so to speak I so let's get back to the story here so the children were removed from one. Affirmative Fountains Home Mr Fountain who claim to be a former heroin addict as I told you and practitioner of witchcraft had said he had as many as one hundred twenty children. Living at his twenty eight Acre compound outside Lucille. It contends that his right to freedom of religion exempts him from any state oversight. Of course it does but last June a George County Youth Court judge looking allegations of beatings and other abuse which come from the information that I provided along with the the other boy I escaped with I have to assume I never saw him after that his parents came to pick them up there at the police station. And I'm looking for your man if you hear this. I can't remember your name. I'M HORRIBLE WITH NAMES. But if you hear this please get with me. But they ordered the State Department of Public Welfare to take custody of the BETHEL residents a lot of them weren't there though because that's again Herman told all of the kids to run because he was given that three day. Notice from somebody out of Congress and why do you think of what had been from somebody at a congress have already put all the pieces together for you? All you have to do is put the puzzle together people. Okay because they were using. These children allegedly stirring these parties and get togethers Genn. Use your imagination. That's why they were tipped off. Why what other reason would there be to do that? In less those stories were absolutely true. And that's what was going on there and again that leading fathom it's going to bring it up it's going to say it just going to get it out. What had happened to me as I saw what we were sitting there. Chipping bricks one day. A line of the very very young Boys it seemed to me to be anywhere for maybe like seven to ten years old Couple of them that I had seen close a few times Been beaten very very badly broken limbs. None of them were ever taken to the hospital. But they were being marched out towards the back of the property and didn't see them after that and they noticed that I saw that so a couple of days later during the night they ripped me out of my bread. Took me out. Put a gun up to the back of my head but I have to say allegedly because I was at night and I can't see what's at the back of my head but I feel a metal thing at the back of my head. That's obviously meant to be a gun. Because that's what they said. There's Day basically told me to dig my own grave that I had seen things that I wasn't supposed to see. I just went out of body folks. I just going to be honest with you. I didn't I didn't know what else to do. I didn't cry but that wasn't just because there was some tough guy I just didn't know what to do. I froze. I just kept digging. I knew this was it I was going to die and No one was gonNA ever know how 'cause they were just going to say that I had ran away and they have no idea whatever happened to me and so I just remember going out of body and just looking down at myself from above digging the hole and then You know obviously I'm still here so it was still part of the programming but they did scare the Shit. Outta me but not enough for it to make a difference. I still knew this just gave me even more more of the reason to hate them and know that I was going to get out of there. I was going to outsmart these people and try my best to get out others if I could. Because you're on watch there the entire time. You're not allowed to speak to anybody and you had somebody watching you so I had to create hand signals that A number of the boys learned after a certain period of time. They had no idea what I was doing. Then they did figure it out. I can't remember exact. Wasn't the boy that I took with me. There was another one And Again I. I don't know his name because I couldn't talk to him. But he figured out what I was doing. And then he kind of explained to the other ones because they could talk at that point but not relate to each other but they could still talk so they could get away with you know mentioning something so they explained what I was doing in that. I was going to get out of there and I was going to take them with me or really anybody. That was able to understand what I was saying. I would try to get them out. It took me I was there about six months a little bit longer. thank God was any longer than that but there towards the end. I didn't have a chance because you're being watched the whole time You've got the defense is all around the people that say it wasn't fence or ninety. It was completely fenced. All around and to get up and over that there was these Spines not concertina wire but there was these big spine sticking up. They would fold them up and so just getting over that. We got all ripped up anyways. It was only able to get out that one other guy unfortunately but at least I was able to get one out And I help them. Help protect them. Yeah the whole time. You're out there in the swamp to show them what to do and he wanted to go towards town. I explained him the reason why not to because they would be able to pick us up immediately soon as they figured out that we had Made it out. We probably got about a fifteen or twenty minute headstart. The guard had fallen asleep and So that's what gave me the first star to being able to get out of there one step at a time and to make it out over to the fences so anyways that was one of the big things I wanted to mention. Is You know one is the being strapped down to the bed for three days and playing the music and again. Nobody believed me. My own family didn't even bother to ask what was going on and I don't blame them. I mean look at my brothers and sisters. The closest one is is ten years to me. You know they were in college or whatever they were doing and you know it upsets me because none of them asked anything. But I- forgiven emanate. I Love Them. They're they're you know my adoptive family to home adopted so talk about being abandoned I've obviously have issues with abandonment. dislike many others. Do that went through this but I was adopted at eighteen months of age. That's very unusual as well because you forty bonded with your mother and your family at eighteen months and be ripped out of that family and put into another one was terrific I won't get into the again. That's that's for another day. It's actually would make for another really really good show in how was is able to find and locate them without any information and before the Internet was Really a thing You couldn't use it really for doing any research. So there's another bunch of articles here that are put in the show notes as far as fountain is concerned but again it was the culmination. And we're going to have to do another episode. Only specifically focused on fountain the The compartmentalization that was going on there. Brother Owens who's now has some type of Situation Out in California. He's running some grew out there. But he's the guy that if you guys have been listening to the series that when he left the police station through the garbage bag At me and whispered in his in my ears he was leaving that they were going to find me and they were going to kill me. That was the thing that actually lasted with me for the longest period of time. It wasn't even supposed gun put to my head and even dig. My grave is bad as out was terrific. That was it was just his voice the way he did it that I had nightmares for many many years after that. And it made me you know. Do an act in a lot of different ways Went through two different marriages. Very hard to keep relationships going Who's very difficult to mature? Because I was forced to grow up very very early very early from even things that occurred before this call experience but in the ways that it made me grow up were not structured in a way that was positive if that makes sense so I was not able to keep and maintain adult type relationships. And I'm sure a lot of you can probably identify with that. So officials say when there are allegations of abuse the State Health Department VHS Attorney General's office and local law enforcement are required to work together sources. Say that eleven girls who ran away have gone back to their homes while the remaining residents wait at D. H. S. offices to be picked up by their parents but again there wasn't very many of them because he told the kids. Oh I didn't mention that surly apologized guys To run away that it was within their interest to run away from the home. These were young kids. He basically was kicking them out because what he was doing was he was creating a fiasco like this. This like herding cats because all the kids took off all different directions. And he said they're coming after you and they're gonNa put you in jail and they're going to do this and they're going to do that and of course the kid. You're freaking out. You don't know what to do so you run so now. They've got to find these kids. Got To round them up plus do what they need to do there at the Bethel home so you can imagine what that was like for law enforcement not to mention that. They were tipped off three days at a time so they weren't able to find the disturbed areas of sand and dirt there on the property. Guys can let your minds wander there. But yeah and that's part of what I had seen and kind of came to a conclusion even even at that time That kid tied to a tree. I think I mentioned that. I'm one of the other episodes if not then yeah is tied to his tree by his parents Just abandoned him didn't want all tied them. They're like he was an animal. I actually got an animal from the shelter. Wants that was tied to a tree outside. The shelter disliked this little boy was and I only saw him for about a week a week and a half and he was gone and I guarantee you. He was sent pretty quickly because of his age to one of these locations trauma serving and abuse And obviously the point where me may have passed away. And that's why he wasn't brought back there so we're GONNA come back to that There's there's a lot more information concerning fountain and again How he was able to put this together. And what roelofs role in all of this was and what I'm serving which I'm sure a lot of you now if you're smart if you're awake you're should easily be able to put together what. I'm explaining to you about the three-letter organizations the alphabet soup the clowns in America. You know starting off and running these different organizations but they did. That's how they make money whether it was drug trafficking or sex trafficking were other things that are pretty much even You can research them through. Foia axe freedom of information acts and see what they were doing as far as drug and money laundering. It's right there. This is not good. Spiracy you can look it up and it's There's plenty of documentation about that. And that's what black budget Funds a lot of it comes from not just from our taxes but also from the sex trafficking and drug running and everything else that was going on and they were the ones that were in charge of putting together. So that's who I believe for sure. Roloff was and when he was no longer needed he had a plane he was flying. So I keep coming back to these kids being flown all around so it makes me think they're that Roloff. I'm sure was using that plane to fly to children to you. The different governors Or the states that would go to the governor's mansions and whatever's happening. There's what's going on there Now as far as the White House is probably was a different plane I don't know probably someone sent from the White House possibly unmarked though and then flew the children. Were boys the teenagers in in that manner For these quote parties of what was going on so I think I'm GonNa stop there today again. Just because there's so much more information here and I know that it can get confusing I hope I didn't confuse you guys too much. And you're able to put together some more of the pieces here we're GONNA get into how it applies to today how it applies to Epstein how it applies to Weinstein. What's going on Hollywood That these places are all still connected through these wasp programs not just in the United States which there are thousands of them literally where they're also oversees literally. These these facilities are in Costa Rica and Romania even over in In Europe some of these kids are drug and they wake up and they're literally. They're they're outside. The country parents had signed the you know whatever it is that he needed to sign and they took him out under the guise of they were going to help them because they were troubled teens. The parents again not knowing what was really going to go on what was happening. But we're gonNA teach you what to look for. The exact things will guillano early ten things to look for Because there's lots of places if you're having trouble and I mean real trouble most things you need to be able to handle as a family. You shouldn't push your problems off with your kids onto groups like this because ninety five percent of them are illegitimate is only a very small amount. That are legitimate. That could actually do some help for your child. It would only be in the worst case scenario and I put that challenge onto you. If there's parents listening to not just jump to pushing them off onto somebody else because believe me. Something bad is going to happen to them. Statistically speaking because there's so many of them and I'm telling you they know how to work you. They know what to tell you they know how to make these places look like gardens of Eden that it's literally the greatest place that your child was ever going to go to and then you find out months later if they take off that they have been walked into cells and waterboarded and on and on it really. That's that bad And worse and again more children passing away. dying suits being placed in the courts with a lot with What's going on a gentleman That's suing in telling you story on a few different New sites that goes all the way back to nineteen sixty eight when he was in one of roll offs facilities going back that far and they were sending them into what was called quote the White House but what was in that White House but it was called the White House because it was white. But when you got inside the walls were covered in blood from the beatings to beatings. They would take were so bad. That blood would literally fly and was stuck on the walls all over. So I don't want you guys to get a picture in your head of just like a switch you know where you go out and just get a little stick in you know. Some parents used to do that. When you're a kid and and you've got a little spanking. You know whatever big deal. This is serious stuff. This is like king like what would happen to you in Singapore. If you break the law and trust me when you get caned You're you're hurt so badly you cannot walk. So they break bones That's the type of thing that when we talk getting beaten. is occurring to you worse. with some of the techniques that the US and then of course you've got the psychological abuse of of the programming and the brainwashing with the being strapped down And having the tapes played which started with Lester Roloff. And how? We'd Lester Roloff loneliness and how to do it. He would learn it through those organizations because they're the ones that perfected it in that time where we're not talking about recently roll off because only the nineteen forties starting this stuff into the fifties. Okay so you would have known nothing about this. This isn't quote hypnotism with which was around back then but those were just acts that people would put on where we're talking about actual real mind manipulation here and again like M. K. Ultra like what they put Yuna bomber through. Which if you've ever seen the documentaries or movies you would know M. K. Ultra is real. What you see happen to him happened to him so no wonder that man fell into the the mental black hole that he did and I'm not justifying him sending out those bombs. I'm just saying I get it I can I can. I can see how he could fall into that mental black hole because of what happened to him during those studies. I mean I could have been a lot worse than what happened. I'm surprised did it. Only a couple of people were killed by these bombs. I it really. It could have been much much worse folks much worse when you take that into consideration. And that's just what was done there at Harvard and some of the other Ivy League schools being done at again facilities and organizations all across the United States. It's still being done today. It was very very big in the eighties. Then you can get into remote viewing which is a whole other thing There was the wars going on between the United States and Russia where it was kind of like the space race but they were Rushing back and forth to see who could develop telekinesis I or mind reading I and they really believed in this. This is the real deal again. Look it up. Spend all day. You can find as much information as you ever want on On all of that so okay. I'm GonNa let you guys go. I hope that helped a little bit to put some of the information together. I really do need help from again. The girls position now that I don't have Jessica in order to help me because I know there was quite a bit going on on that side but I can't speak to it only from some of the stories that I will get into on the next show. There's plenty of it but I I'd rather get it right from the person's mouth for you. Not just an article so you can literally hear it and you can feel it and you can know what's going on and again to realize that it's still occurring today in a different form but it's still occurring and then again teach the parents and teach people what to look for and what not to fall for because we are so easily so easily programmed like sheep you know. Unfortunately I'm I'm sorry to tell you all that but we are as humans you know basically as animals and the way that our minds work and brains work and distinct about buying things. You don't even know when you walk into a grocery store. Why you by half the things you buy will like. I'm here to tell you that you're buying half of those. Things are all of these things because you have been programmed to do so by the commercials that run in their run. The certain way is called Bernez method. Burn as like the sauce. You can look it up And his methods which he took from The Nazis in Germany and the propaganda. And how incredibly good they were at doing that Which if anybody understands any history at all I'm not gonNA get into all that right now. I mean but if you do look that up look what they did. They put a free radio and every single citizens pocket and that time they called smart. That was so that they could hear and be entertained by whatever. Hitler wanted them to be entertained by and then when he did his speeches you would be able to hear his speeches. And every single citizen had this radio pocket radio to think about that technology at that time but so that's part of that method and then they you know took that to a whole different level After that to where they literally get their neighbors to out the other neighbors and kill them in the streets and I mean you gotTa Be Pretty Brainwash and program to get to that point where even fear alone is going to cause you to do something like that Especially to do it on your do it yourself. Whether it's you or your neighbor and I know a lot of people that just wouldn't do it and allow themselves to be shot because they would stand up and know that it's wrong. They would not allow the neighbor who might be Jewish or you know the Gypsies that were more or less outside of the towns but maybe a gypsy or or maybe was closeted homosexual again. These are all the people that were put into the camps. It's not just the Jews. That was the majority but was everybody and so that Aura of telling on your neighbors was pretty much invented or I should say perfected by the Third Reich. Horrible horrible stuff and then we brought ear just like we brought in with the Project Paper Clip. We brought all of the German scientists here and Verner Bonde Braun for the space race and getting to the moon. He was one of them. We gave them all a free pass and so there was a lot of other scientists that came here but also in the marketing and propaganda was brought over here and used against us as a society that came directly from Hitler's Nazi Germany. Okay that's enough folks Look for another episode. Probably next week should be no problem with that. We're going to start doing quite a bit more. Please please go and give us a five star review as of explained a million times. That's how people find us. Okay if you've if you've taken the time to listen just click the five stars. You could find it right there. It's right there on Apple Itunes and it's pretty easy to find. I don't know exactly where they are. But you can also do it with Google android. Just click the five stars for us so we can also be suggested Will grow much much faster because we're also dealing with you guys should know the owl once was lost. Podcast so al. Owi L. Once was lost podcast which were a partner and One half of a tool for missing persons Of the OWL once was lost phone application. So you can get that on. Ios Apple or android on the plate Store you need to get that if you have kids you have elderly parents WITH DEMENTIA. Alzheimer's or you work in a facility. That does anybody. That's vulnerable in any shape or form. Go and get that application. There's only a couple of them and the other ones are no good. This was the oldest one is phenomenal.

Your child goes missing in a store. You could literally upload them within a minute or two and be on the phone with me interviewing in real time giving out specific information. That's even more detail than what you can put into the APP and we can have people that have joined looking for your child and be bringing back your child and putting them into your arms literally before the podcast is even over. Think about that. That's the truth so this is the game changer. So please do that. I look. We don't make anything from this guy's nothing I do though want to bring up. We do have a patriotic for that because we do have to obviously keep the application and it's A. It's a very sophisticated APP. You know this guy you know. We're blue collar people here all right. You know we do all of this out of her own pocket and look. This is this is fun for me to do but the OWL is different. That that's a literal life saving tool and we've got to keep it going properly so you just go to. Www dot patron. That's P Eighty are win dot com Ford Slash. Once was lost podcast. I'm pretty sure it's podcast. Repot I apologize but Patron DOT COM forward slash once loss podcast or once was lost potted. I'm pretty sure it's podcast but look in the show notes right there and please help us with anything. Even if it's just a dollar a month it's going to help to keep that going. In fact we've got a huge added three minute ad That's GONNA be out on the minds of madness flood of your fans of that show. It's a phenomenal really. Well done true crime podcast. They were nice enough. They reached out to us. We didn't even ask. They reached out knowing what we were doing. Knowing that this is a game changer for everybody for the criminology for law enforcement for families that not just for missing people. But we're also GONNA work on cold cases and we're working with some organizations that do that on ones that have the best chance of being solved because we're going to have such a large group of people because it just it just makes sense. It's it's a need if you don't download this and you have kids. I don't know what to tell you. Okay it's not child abuse marketed. Say That that's not true but it's just not fair to the kids again makes no difference to us. I don't know you are. I don't know who I'm speaking to right now. But whoever is listening again if you have kids if you've got parents that are elderly again with Alzheimer's or dementia you work in a hospital For the elderly you And you have somebody that has mental challenged You know maybe with their autistic or anything you know. There's a million different things. Here of people that can go missing. Amber alerts are great so alerts are great but they don't come out immediately. There's precious time there that's lost and then you only get the name. Maybe what they're wearing if you're lucky and a license plate now. How is that going to help you? Unless you're driving behind them literally right on the interstate and then look but not laughing at them. They're a great tool. They're better than nothing but now because parents complained of the missing abducted children and law enforcement. They are backing us. The ones that know we exist. But they're all going to start to know that we exist now and we're going to start to spread and grow very very quickly almost exponentially Dirt because a word of mouth. And that's what we need you guys for. So please go there. Download the application. I then download. The podcast is not like other podcasts. Were we're going to be doing live interviews and as we get moving this even going to be a twenty four hour a day seven day a week deal so even the middle of the night. If your child goes missing were here for you. You will literally be able to upload your child and get in touch with US. One of her host will be on duty and will go live with your information. Okay also. I don't want you to think like you know the entire everybody in the United States all alerted at the same time. You know you'll get alerted if it's within a specific area Of the child going missing or the European going missing or whatever You know because again but if it's over a amount of time because everything is within that first hour guys right if if you do not find a child in the first hour if they're abducted there's only six percent chance they will be found alive. That is unacceptable and I would hope that every one of you would feel the same way that is unacceptable and the way that we fixed that is by downloading this APP. So that if your child does get abducted you can upload them within minutes and you could have literally hundreds of people just in your area within. Let's say twenty miles all searching maybe meant to the thousands. If you're in a city area tens of thousands. Okay all looking for your child that makes that chance and stat go way up as far as US adding the opportunity to find that person to find that culprit. Rustam put him in jail. Put in jail for the rest of Your Life for kidnapper. Whatever whatever it is they did. So that's what we're working on. That's the other thing that's going to become the base core podcast for a Saunder Productions S. O. N. D. E. R. A. Saunder productions. We have a audio book podcast. It's GONNA come out. We've got a live sports podcast. It's GonNa come out with some hall of fame players. It's going to be pretty awesome through a director producer that we know. And then we've got of course. The light saving owl once was lost. Podcast once was lost phone application. That's at the core because that's what we want everybody. We don't care about the rest guys. We really don't. It's not about that in all the Patriot money guys. It goes to charity. It goes to the APP to make sure that it works. And it's going to go to charity to to like private investigators that people can't afford after the police are done in big cities. Sometimes the only have a week maybe less to search for your child or whoever goes missing and then they gotta move onto another case and you're just left sitting there. What are you GONNA do? And you don't have the money to afford to pay a private investigator to go and search twenty four hours a day. Well I'm here to tell you there are organizations. That will do this for you. Okay for free pro Bono so we can hook you up with them. That's the kind of things that were here to do to be a shoulder to lie on. You know we say we like to get out and spread our wings and just wrap them around this nation. And that's we've talked about and just really just grapple than just make sure -cause owls if you know they're up all night and their vision is so good and they can see their prey so nobody would be able to get away with what they had just done if there's an abduction Somebody's dismissing obviously. That's a whole other other story but so please go and get that right now. Don't stop till all of your friends. Everybody needs to get that application. Even if you don't have kids because I guarantee got friends that do okay. So tell them to get it. But let's say they don't have it or they didn't get it in time than maybe you got it. You can glowed the friends child and we could be looking for them right now as we speak again. It's real time. Okay all right guys. I'm just Obviously rambling now. But that was very very important information. Please help us on on patriotic and Look we hear podcasts. Like I brought up before they make millions of dollars. They have huge production companies. They still ask for Patriot funds a mocking out them. It doesn't matter I'm not going to say who it is. That's not right. It's not fair and everybody deserves to make a living. They really do everybody that but when you're literally making hundreds of thousands of dollars per episode and I'm telling you these that like they're small are not and that's what they're making and I can't fathom that especially the ones that work in true crime because they're they're working off of other people's pain and I find that to be a little despicable. There's very good ones. Though I mean I could tons album on got seventy. Podcast had downloaded and I listened to pretty much every one of them. Half of them are true crime. But they're the ones that that do a great job they at least give outnumbers at the end of who to call if you have information or tips things like that. That's what you want to look for those podcasts. So all right guys I'm GONNA stop talking your ear off. We'll get back with you next week. And we'll continue this and The Saga and will even talk about the documentary. That's going to be coming out with those guys are doing and what they're up to over and out on drew.

I hope that you have had a great week. It's almost the holidays. And i am going to give you a bunch of recommendations of shows that you can binge now. I'm hoping that you have a little bit more time. And i'm telling you if you need a little escape from the world. These are some great recommendations one of the specials. I saw this week was called. The case died with her. It's a new oxygen special. And it explores this. Tragic story of emily morris who died before she could testify against her alleged abuser so in october of two thousand fourteen she seems on top of the world for the first time in years. She had many years of struggle. Lots of her friends said she really seemed to be in a good spot since she was sixteen. She'd been living with a dark secret and that secret was that she alleged that a cross country coach. James walter. The third had begun sexually abusing her when she was a popular star athlete. Lindbergh high school in saint louis missouri. So after years of battling depression and alcoholism to cope with the pain she felt in july two thousand thirteen. She worked up the courage to go to the police about what he had allegedly done to her. All those years ago something that she captured him talking about in a secretly recorded conversation. So if you can only imagine the trauma of being subjected to abuse and then having him sit in a car with her and capturing it on on audio him seemingly admitting to what he had done so in august of two thousand. Thirteen wilder was arrested and charged with six counts of statutory sodomy to which he pleaded not guilty so her parents. Her friends were excited to see her doing so. Well the trial was coming to fruition. And she was happy that she was finally going to get some justice but that justice would never come because on november fourth of fourteen. She suddenly dies as did her case because prosecutors said they needed her testimony to continue and the case was ultimately dismissed which was devastating so an autopsy ruled that she had died of asphyxiation. Her manner of death whether accidental suicide or homicide was undetermined so the case died with her is based on reporting from a buzzfeed news and is on oxygen network and it explores the allegations against wilder and howard. Death put an end to the investigation. So if you like true crime definitely watch this You can't help. But feel for emily and just how brave she was to have him in the car. I just couldn't get over that so that again that's called. The case died with her. And that's on oxygen another great show and this one you can watch with your kids on point in its on disney. Plus it's a six part docu series that captures season in the school of the american ballet in new york city it features unprecedented access to the famous bali institution. The series follows. The lies of the students ages eight to eighteen pursuing their dreams to become ballet dancer so while older students from all over the country rigorously trained professional careers. Younger students from new york city are put through their paces as they rehearse and perform in new york city ballet's holiday classic george balanchine's the nutcracker onstage at lincoln center. So it's got the holiday feels watching the nutcracker but you also have these incredible personal stories of these athletes and to get access to this. Really famed school is extraordinary. And it reminds me of that movie center stage. That was so great to watch. It's actually good one to watch the kids. Well maybe not actually to think. I watched that with. Chris and i was like well. Some of this is a little racy but you get the point. I mean if your kids like ballet or dance. It's just a great series. And i have zero background dance background and i thought it was really interesting so again. That's called on point. It's on disney. Plus another thing that. I found extraordinary this week. In fact just happened last night. Is jacob roloff from little people. Big world came forward with his story of sexual abuse. Jacob is the youngest of the roloff children over. The course of several years has really went out of his way to not participate in the filming of the show and i think he's had some personal troubles and it was always kind of under the assumption. That maybe he was having some challenges But it all makes sense. Now because he so bravely as come forward to tell his story. And it's just heartbreaking. So he's twenty three now and he said he was molested by a former producer for the show who worked on the show their family from two thousand seven to two thousand ten so when he was quite young This producer has not responded to any of the requests for comment but in this poignant. Instagram post shared yesterday jacob. Who left the show in two thousand nineteen said that he is talking about the experience now that he can continue to heal so for. Those of you are not familiar with the show. Was this insightful. Window into what. It's like to live with parents who are little people. So amy amount. Roloff had four children. The oldest were set of twins. One is normal height. the other ones zach is a little person and then they have to other regular size children. And i've even had matt on my show and it was a great show because it really Destabilized a were kind of revealed the realities of being a little person in the world and it was enormously popular. Shirt still is popular but over the years jacob. The youngest one is become quite private. A lot of people have kind of wondered what happened to him so in this instagram post he He has said it is often much easier to think about things that it is to talk about them. And so this. Discourse has been delayed but through the delay i have found the fortitude and words as a child after what i realized now is a long grooming process. I was molested by an executive field producer for little people big world. I do not expect to provide details of this encounter at any point publicly. I do hope he has never allowed around children again. Adding that he first began thinking about going public when this producer texted him november of two thousand fifteen years after the alleged abuse he says i chose to disclose it now as it remains a traumatic memory that needs to be exercised of any further power over in my development by revealing. This may be more fully understood and my perspective on issues such as child sexual abuse child exploitation and the collateral costs of reality television may be received more clearly. Although i have to add that this experience is not solely defined my point of view on all these issues nor has a divine my world view in general this may also serve as a reminder that the experience of sexual assault in all of its iterations can happen to anyone at any time and is a far more prevalent reality than our current. Social stigma allows us to talk about. He also added that he did not speak up sooner because the child must process and i needed silence and time. So it's really really. It's just so well. Written the best victims statement i've ever read Of course tlc. I'm sure is just heartbroken by this. They say we are saddened in troubled by this very serious allegation and tlc will work cooperatively with the authorities are main focus remains in supporting the roloff family during this very difficult time jacob goes on to say in his statement that the prophets were indeed sweet. The actual experience was more complicated. He concluded in his lengthy post by emphasizing that all fault lies with the predator and no fault lies with any of my family members. And i'm certain that this is a positive moment for me and another step forward toward a brighter future in solidarity with silence survivors. So i'm thinking of him this week. I'm profoundly impressed with his words And and the way that he will ultimately really kind of raised the antennas of all the parents that have children on shows and thinking about the people that are in the orbit of the shows and how many children that he'll probably save. But i definitely think a cautionary tale for those that are eager to have their families participate in shows because Ultimately i think when you have a big family and you're doing a show that would be quite difficult to kind of manage at all so I'm thinking of jacob roloff and his family. And it's just heartbreaking for all the parties involved now on another note my featured guest today are the cast of my new favorite show. I dare to say it is my favorite reality. Show of twenty twenty. My absolute favorite few like we ended this horrid year on a high note because this is fantastic. Tv making because you have a family a family that is willing to crack their lives open. Great senses of humor in a beautiful place. And i think just hits all the marks so the show is called the house of how it's on. Hbo max this is similar to the best selling book. Crazy rich asians written by a houston native named kevin kwan. The show was also based in houston. Hbo max noting that the movie was such a hit plan to find an asian family comparable to the young family and crazy rich asians and make them the focus of a show. So that plan came to fruition when they heard about houston's own ho family the clan behind this incredible show and also a multi million dollar real estate and banking empire so been in hugo came to america during the mass exodus of people from south vietnam as it fell to the communists in nineteen seventy five both worked in lower income for years until been began a career in insurance and since then he's earned millions from creating a bank and a real estate development company and they live lavish lifestyles. But at least they know where they come from so judy. The oldest child says my dad was working at a gas station and one of those big white cadillac cadillac's pulled up and he told himself one day. I'm going to be that person driving a cadillac and so here they are all these years later. They've got three kids. Although the pair started off in fredericksburg. Virginia they got into real estate moved to houston and gradually work their way up to the top of the cities real estate market a story. That is quintessential american dream. In fact their sons were both named in honor of us presidents because of the whole family being so proud to be living in the united states so their sons are washington and reagan and they have a daughter named judy and she's like. How did my name become judy. And the naming tradition has since translated into every grandchild also being given presidentially inspired name so far the family is named checked kennedy truman mckinley roosevelt in lincoln. And so this is a window into their incredible lives in houston the dynamics of the vietnamese family and i just think it's going to put a little springer stop. It's such a funny show. And so i was so excited to catch up with them in houston. Now live down the street from each other. Judy and washington. So they're always spending time when another so you will probably hear their kids a little bit in the background. God knows we all know what that's like so this is a really fantastic family. And i know that if you binge it even this weekend you're going to go. Oh my god that shows great. And you're gonna hope for a second season so my guests are washington and judy ho and washington.

And i've been telling everybody. This is the sleeper hit of the year. You guys this show is so fricken. Good you guys mailed it. I can't even imagine what this has been like for film. You must be crazy. Tell me how long this process has been from the conception to now. I think two years right. Oh wow and a half years. We started centralizing and you know about when he was like the beginning of twenty eighteen and then crazy rich asians came out and we saw the success of that and then accelerated still. Your show predated the movie. Yes we were talking about it and you know one brothers produced crazy rich. Asians had an idea. And i always wanted to do something no on the reality. Tv platform succession. So got lucky. So whose idea was it for the show. It was your idea. yes it was. My one of my crazy ideas would be really fun. I had a beautiful for sister in a beautiful wife Bonita to see them more out. My father had a great story. My mother father coming from vietnam during the american ring world needed to see that our just middle. Where are you at all worried that tina would upstage all of you guys you. We're happily head. No she she taught me how to drive. She taught me how to have fun in that she the show i mean got. She's she's just sterile. Tell me how hard it was to get your mom on board off board. I have to tell her no. I haven't used one of her Ultimatum secrets against yourself. Said mom you really love. You really love me. you'll do this. And she's like her. Unless were you at all worried that by exposing yourself on these conversations that you have with your mom on television that everyone in your family would know what like what is your modus operandi to get your mom to do stuff. I mean you kind of let the cat out of the bag. We all knew anyway. It was not a secret. Family wasn't easy but it was true. So i mean there really are all. Everybody has such a great personality. I think the great thing too is just how supportive you all are of each other. I really love the friendship between leslie and judy. How long did you know each other before. Leslie started dating washington now. I let from oklahoma. So she did. You know he's a playboy. He had some friends in and out throughout my life using what i need. Eat them water. Only see her next week. But you know what. I met lindsey. I knew something was different about her. I've known her since dedi. I've seen their ups and downs of the so proud of where the today show grow is. Judy lived with us during that filming process right. So that's nice relationship really blossoms. And i've never i don't have any sisters so for me to have a girlfriend in hostile to know the inner workings of my family who i mean. It was really nice. How outlet ally because it what the great thing about the show to is to To kind show people the dynamics of a vietnamese family. So maybe if you guys could just kind of explain to people about how. A vietnamese family works in terms of like your father's business and why washington would take over. I mean judy. You've like a law degree. You're no ding-dong. I was like getting the business.

He was sending his essays in. Paper is in our pretty much who freedom right then But in these lane the oldest son they can do wrong they are the golden child they get everything they want and everyone else's bro is to whatever us alert has might need that's what allegedly commiserate together And you do the you haven't made what about reagan. Because he's a son or does he still get some sort of esteem within the family confines. If he's a boy. I mean a little bit more is he's also but nothing. Overtake the oldest son. I mean washington. Do you see how ridiculous that any only ridiculous. My sister was away better student albert myself and my brother and saying why you and graduated on time and it took me seven years to finish my bachelor's but as being the oldest son i guess you have to step up at some point in your life rather got me star so it took you seven years to get a bachelor's degree they want you to take over the family business when you agreed seven years. I'm like what's radio much harder to get a bachelor's degree seven years it's much more rare i'd say so okay and then you marry leslie who is a pharmacologist. She is brilliant in her own. Right and your father takes her aside. And says i don't know if he should take over. Why aren't judy and leslie.

It is a big privilege for me to say, Matt Roloff. Welcome to first-class fatherhood out for having me. All right here, we go. How many kids do you have? And how old are you? I've got four kids, and let's see we've got my oldest twins. And so they're going to be twenty seven years old both fathers themselves, and then I have a daughter who's twenty five Molly. And then my youngest shakeup is twenty two. Also, my have four as well, what type of sports or activities where the all into growing up while they're pretty much all in do soccer, I wrestler in high school. So I tried to get them all into all the boys at least into wrestling at a young age. But they all Bennett for one. And I. They were all definitely champion wrestlers. But they decided that soccer was was more interesting to them. So they switched to soccer, and I slowed with that. Yes. Soccer has become increasingly popular since I've been a kid. I mean, I've had some of my children playing soccer as young as four years old. I mean, it's really taken over yet. No doubt about that. All right. Matt, please do me a favor here. Just take a minute to hit my listeners, but a little bit about your background. And what you do. Let's see I started off as a computer programmer, and in my early after high school that was a good a programmer, and then went into computer sales opera sale work for some large companies all over the world, really. And then and then somewhere along the line, I got into farming. And so now, I'm a pumpkin farmer grow pumpkins. And we have a we have a television show that we do a little people world when that's not keeping me busy. I'm busy maintaining the farm, and I have a number of other little businesses. I sell it the -bility kipps into hotels, and and and a very Senate product into grocery stores. I actually have a children's book. I know you're a big avid reader to your kids. So I've built a a little book called the Lucy big rates for for kids to read. And so I I've got to all kinds of different things. Yeah. You have had an incredible journey, Matt. When did fatherhood, I come into this picture. For you. How old were you? And how'd it becoming a dad kind of change your perspective on life? Well, if the I got married, I was point four, and then there probably was a year and a much longer, you know, with my wife at the time Amy that dreg with the twin? So I must have been about twenty five I'm guessing I'd have to go back to the map. But but about twenty five years old when I had the twin boys and all yeah. It was a radical change. I mean, I had to really go from being more self-centered and everything's about you know, my career, and if you're really being the the custodial of precious little lives, and the responsibility is is quite stunning. You know, and so when you make that per step, especially in my kids where we had two of them. And you know, one of them was a little person like myself and one of them was average size. So my wife, and I time where little people we had physician and one of our twins had warfare them. And then the other one was perfectly. You know, I guess you we use the word normal. Are we couldn't use the word, you know, kid? And so we we had our hands full at back in the day, and Amy was very small. She had to, you know, carry a carry these kids I insider, and that was quite a, you know, quite a feat accomplished, physical accomplishment. And then after they were born, you know, between the two of us having to let the kids around and get all the guy for change. It really did. It was revolutionized our perspective in our life. And and it continues to do of they well said, all right? Matt little people big world is a big success. You guys have going for many years. Now, you draw great ratings. It's very popular with all the fans out there. Whether the opportunity I come up, what was the Genesis of little people big world. And what are some of the challenges of being a reality TV star while being adad? Well, you know, one of the things I I I have quite a little my form of disability or form dwarfism. I should say. As a pretty physically limiting, you know, I'm on crutches. And and what have you? So there would be some sports in some activities that I wasn't going to be able to do with the kids. And I knew that was gonna be a little harder for me to be competitive with them on soccer. I mean, I could kinda swing my leg. Kick a ball a little bit which I did. But but I did have sort of creative best to myself. So I said out when the kids were first born the twins and fact, they weren't even born yet when I said, I one thing I can do very, well, if I can I can build I can build stuff, and so, you know, tree houses and go karts and fourteen things like that. So I said out in my, you know, time after work of building a very elaborate structures, and what have you, and, you know, sometimes I'd hire high school kids to home, you know, sums I do a lot of it. You know, my hands and knees, and I've built really cool playgrounds for the kids, and if it could their imagination and. Help you know, help me be creatively have a creative outlet. And that's what caught the attention of producers to to develop the show little people big world. So producers came along and said, this is pretty interesting that this guy that can barely walk. You know, building a pirate ship in his backyard. You know, and that was the Genesis of the little people. That's just kind of the Reader's Digest version of how the show started. Yeah. Very cool. Do you ever look back at some of the episodes, Matt and see something about yourself that you didn't like or maybe make a change or a correction in your parenting, style or your behavior as a result Yes. Absolutely. That happens frequently especially in the early days, I used to sell people everybody should have, you know, video camera in the corner there room and watch how they behave in certain circumstances. And you might grow up a little bit. And certainly happened with us with. See things on on the TV, you know, and kind of be mortified it how we handle this particular situation, and what have you? So, you know, I don't like to say, oh, the TV, you know, process of being on TV changed me or anybody else. But there's there's no doubt that when you see yourself. You know, we have literally thousands and thousands and thousands of hours of television. That's been created over the last fourteen years, and you know, now now I look at it. And it's more of a prince, you know, than it did hide in the bedroom underneath underneath the bed more about that than it is. But there was the early days. Definitely try to you know, learn about distant self reflection. Yeah. I would imagine somebody that many of the pro sports athletes experienced during film session, when they're rewatching game from the day before it really makes them wanna you know, run in hide their head because let's face it. The camera does it lie. What thing about the changing technology is that everyone has access to post stuff on the internet. Whether you like it or not. And everybody is a critic. So how have you handled all the social media and technology, especially what your kids? Well, that's been quite a that's a great question. But quite a journey. We're still figuring it out probably the way I would respond to it's been the time talking about is is having four kids, and they're kind of going through, you know, the process of learning how to how to have six game and people are gonna, you know, everything they do you know, I've had to sit the kid down. They guide everything you do. And you say on your social media is gonna get scrutinized and and and picked apart and yell that. So that was a that's a tough way to grow up, you know, especially for youngest up, you know, he was very young and didn't have all the tools in place. And so we've been a lot of time coaching the kids that, you know, be super careful about you know, what you're saying what you do and your action because you're going to get it's gonna you're going to be remembered by some of this stuff, and you know, there's big rewards that come with being in react. TV business, but there's also, you know, challenges and and that's one of them right there. So I, you know, have always been an adult, you know, during the whole filming process. So I was able to and pretty thick skin. You know, I've been teased my entire life one way or another stared at looked at you know, because of my, you know, stature so it wasn't a big big stretch to go from being ridiculed, and what have you? But you know, people, you know, there's most of the time people are wonderful there. There's what I call. The one percent. I have a thing in our family. We call it. The one percent and one percent means it's hidden might be able more than one percent. But that that's the that's the segment of society that just always going to be mean and honoring and and their power they're jealous, and they, you know, aren't feeling good about themselves or insecure, and we really can't fix everybody. You know, it's it's the people, you know, that can you can reach and that you can't peach and you can. Influence, you know, those are the ones that matter. And you know, the the one percent that are just going to be, you know, you know, I mean and Anri no matter what you do you. You just have to you just have to let that roll off your back and not not get you down. Very well said that's an excellent way to approach it. How about disciplining the kids? Matt I always love to ask parents about their discipline style. But I mean with your kids being famous at least, you know, very, well recognized and popular has that made disciplining them a bit more challenging I mean, how do you handle discipline with the kids unbelievably more complicated? I we could spend a whole podcast. It's very difficult for for one. You it's challenging try to discipline. Your kid and yell at him. When when the cameras are rolling, so which was considerably amount of time, somebody kids learn how to do things that you know, would stimulate the drama of the show. You know, just naturally. The producers are whispering in their ear Gola. You know? Oh, you know, kick your dad, and the Shannon or go don't pick that, you know, dinner plate back to the debacle. So that your dad couldn't get mad? We'll see what that looks like, you know, there's some of that kind of stuff that's going on. And so I I would for example, not know the difference between his is my kids one of my kids doing it just to to do it, wink, wink, at the one of the producers, or is he really being defiant, and you know, being a little person to start with diff- difficult. Think about think about disciplining when your six year old is, you know, ahead of head collar than you, you know. That's that's nothing to think about right. And so I did this try my best to, you know, be creative. And and you know discipline from us perspective of respect make sure that they understood that when I was serious serious. You know, we we raised our kids to be independent and to be individuals. And we wanted this. You know, even though we didn't always. Like some of their choices. We've tried to sit down and talk with them about those choices. But at the same time, you know, we I think we try to let them be who they were going to be and not try to turn them into mini me's. You know? In other words, I didn't want my kids to necessarily be just like me. I want him to be their own people with their own opinions and sought and that's kind of how my folks raise me. And so I think that's an important message for parents is that there's a there's a fine line in there. And everybody's gotta figure their own line out. Yeah.

Now, you have gone through a divorce and divorce is a tough experience for any family to go through. No matter what the circumstances are. But obviously yours are scaled up quite a bit. Because you are public person. You're in the media it's being played out in front of millions of people. And that means millions of opinions, and judgments, so what kind of did your divorce have on your kids, and what kind of advice could you give maybe to a data out there who is just about to jump into this whole divorce process. Well, start after that by saying that my vice that other dad get ready to go. It's definitely definitely keep the kids out of it. And we did that we really, you know, are we were fortunate in our kids didn't probe and wanna know. You know, the details, they, you know, they knew that their mom, and I were, you know, struggling, and, you know, moving in different directions. I think but we didn't drag them in. We very rarely argued in front of them. You know? Fact, I don't think we ever argued really in front of them. I I refused to raise my voice and always kept a kept my voice calm and as possible. And you know, we had you know, are are serious discussions outside the heirs of the kids. And I think they liked it. They appreciated that. And we respect each other. You know, my ex wife, Amy, and I can still get a room or go to a grand daughter's birthday, or you know, we can still do things together without it being, you know, we don't we try not to let there be pension in the room. I mean, it doesn't always work really much easier to say than than to do. But I think we really practice the idea of hey, the tension is for when the cameras are rolling. And we're getting paid for it. You know, the real life. We have to not have that in the room, and we have to on the cameras aren't rolling. We have to really try to. And that's the camera component or life has made it extra. Complicated for what I'm describing. I mean there, you know. I mean, I had to work really hard to to not to realize. Hey, there's no camera going we don't need to we can become. We can be civil, you know. And so it making that stink. And with an extra layer of difficulty. But but getting divorced, you know. Well, cameras are falling. You was indeed very difficult. Yeah. I think it is. So cool the way you guys have handled. It you're doing what's right for the kids. I mean, I've never been through it. So I don't know. But I do know a lot of people that their egos takeover during a divorce and somebody like yourself who is on TV. You have more of a reason to protect your ego of. But you have shown through your actions that there is a better way. I mean, I think that's a great example for other dads out there that are about to go through this. And you mentioned your grandchild in there. What has the experience been like for you Matt being a grandfather now in comparison to fatherhood itself? Well, I am joined I don't wanna say, I'm enjoying a grandparent hood more because I certainly enjoyed being justify. Father and raising the kid, I do think though, I was more distracted by work, and my visions, and my, you know, Dr businesses and things so even though you know, there were times when I bought it was being a great product. 'cause I was always at home and ten of you know, there were times when I was chasing my own, you know, interests and not stopping and saying, you know, for example, one of my kids didn't like the Bill for he three of them loved it. And then the youngest is it wasn't into force. You know, and I pushed on that for a few years, and, you know, not only try to get him into wrestling. But could get them into thing. And and at some point dreaded gird your kid to be, you know, one of your kids to be into a certain hobby, or sport or whatever. And if difficult to know when to say, hey, that's not now what what let's down. What are you interested in? How can I I didn't always make those those turns quick enough? And and and sharp enough know because I was. Trying to influence them in a certain direction with the grandkids. I am super double triple could dribble committed to understanding what they like and following them around. So I found my little grandson around like a little puppy dog looking for what she puts his hands on with. He wants to do is whether he, you know, he he loves to read or pillar, you know. So I I like doing those activities, and I'm not, you know, I like ho wills. I did get hot real track. And I, but I don't pull it out let peoples it out, you know. So you you get older, and you get wiser, and I think that's happened with me, and I've not gonna make the same mistakes in my grandkids as I've made with my with my own kids. But I think that you know, I I've enjoyed grant is grandpa. I don't know what you've had that. But I'm enjoying it immensely. Yeah. It sounds like it do the kids. Enjoy the whole process of the show, Matt or have any of them spoken out against it. And said they wanna be. Part of it. Do they watch the show and enjoy it or has it just become like a regular part of their lives, and they just come to accept it. Well, I I would say everybody in our family has taken their turns loving doing the show and hating during the show, and it's not always at the same time. So with that after that, it's all over the map of right now, though, you know, my youngest dropped out of the show quite a few years ago. He just decided that he did not, you know, like the process of the show, and and the story lines that were drawn up. And so he, you know, slightly left in gracefully, you know, announced that he was going to not be part of the show anymore. And we allow them to do that and said, that's fine. And so the the show did go on and he's still very much part family, actually lives. Still in one of our guests quarters there on the farm. We see them everyday people. Well, why doesn't anybody ever talked to Jacob when we talked to him every single day. It just he doesn't wanna be on the cameras. So the cameras. You know, he's either off travel when the cameras are there are we point them in a different direction than where he is often. He'll be right in the room with us when the cameras are there. But they they just don't they don't feed your him. And he's happy with that and enjoyed it. And then my one of my twin boys this last year him and his wife made the decision that they wanted to pursue other interests. So they asked to to pull back out of the show, you know, and and and I'm I was sort of neutral last year about it. I could've taken it or limit. And we'll probably more left it. But that my other twin and his wife and Jackson, and Amy my ex wife, we're all very interested in thought they had a lot more. They have a lot more stories to tell. So, you know, we all decided in the end, they did really, you know, and I went along with that that it was time to to go ahead and do some more shows. So that's what the season that's coming out here April second, it's going to start. So we've been working people think are. Show kind of those away. But really we're behind the scenes work in our butts off, you know, for eight months, making episodes almost every day. We're filming this, you know, four days a week anyway and. Now, we have a package of episodes that are ready to air here. Just in April second, you know on Tuesday night. So they'll run for you know, ten or twelve weeks, and then and then we'll go, you know, probably actor making more. So they'll be off the air for a while. So it's confusing there the viewers because I don't know whether they're watching a rerun or a brand new episode sometime, and but everything right now three runs until April second, then you're watching brand new content. That was started filming you know, in the summer of last year. Yeah. And I think most of us out here math that watch shows like yours, we have this idea that hey, reality TV. It's so easy and natural. We don't realize all the hard work that takes place behind the scenes to make show like little people big world come together. Plus at the same time being a father, a husband grandfather a boyfriend all on top of it. I mean, I mean, that's gotta wear you down. I would imagine. I would say you've got it. You hit the nail. Yeah. Yeah. The nail on ahead and trying to get you know, you're right. It's hard enough being a father and a husband without that layer. And so the doing reality television people call me on time. Oh, I wanna you know, being reality of it is not for the faint of heart at all. It is very difficult it plays havoc. Because you you especially in our format the format that we're in. You know, you don't know the the, you know, it's difficult to know where the lines of truth or versus made up stories stuff, you know. And so, you know, I could say something that's kind of egged on by the producers, and then I have to go the fans they hit guys. That's not. That's not really how I feel. I just I had to say that to make everything fit together and work. You know, we we we have the family work, very, very hard to make sure that what we put out is very very much in line with the truth, and what's actually happening. But sometimes the timing is, you know, I recently on the internet got beat. Up, you know, over like, oh Matt was faking it he wasn't really buying a house? And it's like people could hear the exact expiration that. Oh, okay. That makes perfect sense. But the way that the timing of when the episode came out when the content was filmed, you know, there was no deception, no live nothing. Just the timing was sort of a little bit askew. And they're, you know, a perfectly good explanation that shows there was no, you know, deception involved, but sometimes it's just falls together in a way that looks like, you know, there there's something going on. So when it it's between us family members or between me and my kids I have to be very good about communicating going to them. And or and them to me. Hey, dad, you don't like recently my kids that got a. Jocking toy about a house and had a lot of stairs. I don't like the houses prosperity. So I was very vocal about that. You know on the television. Then I had to go to them and say, hey, actually, love your house. I don't have the stairs. That's true. But I love your house. It's a wonderful job. Because I don't want them to watch TV and think I hate their home. Anyway, you get I get the idea there. Yeah. I hear you on that, Matt. All right. The show has been a huge success. Another season is dropping soon. What kind of goals or plans that you have for yourself for the future beyond the show? Well, I mean, I it's depicted on the show. It's very interesting. Susan that's coming out about the farm, and you know, my going to bite from her. She going to buy for me on are we both gonna just go status quo. And so we're we're working on that. So my my plans is to get that settled over the next few months. And then once that settled, you know, I we can I, you know, love to maybe build at home or a house on there. That's custom to me, if not if it doesn't if you decide to be the one that buys the farm, then you know, I might build constructor home somewhere else in in the Portland area. I'm talking to you today from Arizona got home down here with my girlfriend. Karen? And and so we spend as much time down here. He can't join the warm, weather and the sunshine, but I I've got all my businesses. My do looking at doing another book, I've actually already written my second little Lucy book a little Lucy. Big Bowie, which I haven't done the artwork for yet. But I'm working on a I really enjoy doing children's books and giving them a strong message of resilience and and overcoming adversity, and what have you? So that's a passion of mine that I I'd like to continue to pursue and other than that. I've I stay I stay busy and my day to day. I everybody said when are you gonna retire? Like, I I don't see that may retiring as a work, you know, working out to. Well. That's awesome. Matt good for you last. I wanna hit you with here. I love to ask all the dads get them upon this. What type of advice do you have for that new father or for that about to be dad who's out there listening? My my biggest advice of you know, I, you know, everybody's gotta find their own weather's no real perfect guidebook at do. It this way. Do it that way. But let let kids, you know, be who they're going to be. I mean, you can obviously you wanna discipline them. And and crack them into commanders, and please and thank yous and all that. But really at some point you need to let go of trying to control your kids, and forcing them to be somebody that they're not and realize that every you know, I have four kids they're all very different personalities extraordinarily different. They they match every all four corners of of you know, of the world in terms of their thoughts in their beliefs, and their, you know, pursuits, and I just have to love him and accept them all for that. And and work to switch gears and develop them and realize each have different needs and different, you know, desires for for my time. And I you know, I didn't always understand that perfectly. And it's cost me. And you know that things I'm relationship. I'm finally figuring that out and and making good by some of those early mistakes. But that's that's my biggest advice for new das-. Let your let your kids can be who they are. And devout they're interested in you know, video games than. Become a video game with them. If they're interested in reading, you know, be become a avid reader with them. So or soccer, whatever the case may be very well said that is great advice. This has been a pleasure for me. You are a first class father. I wish you the best of luck with the new season of the show. And I gotta say Matt Roloff. Thank you so much for giving me a few minutes of your time on first-class fatherhood. Well, thank you out pre. She had a good good work. You're doing keeping up. Okay.

On this thursday with me as always vega lind. How how are you. Hey doing well today due process correctly you do you did. I've never had an issue with how you pronounce my name. It's every other name that you have an issue with. I have a but we found out the other day that i've been pronouncing the name wrong for probably the entire time i've ever known you watch you skip the just viglant. Yeah that's fine i. It's like it kind of sounds the same it's I think you have an issue when it gets over two syllables. A anything over two syllables. I can't pronounce. Yeah i attributed to a submerged massachusetts accent. That's where i think there's there's certain there's certain balance i can't i think that's a generous way to look at it for sure. Yeah well i mean. There's no reason for me not to be generous with myself. Agreed all right. Let's get to this quickly. I want wanna get to matt. We're running a little bit late because it's a technical difficulties the beginning today Obviously The the story that came out of last night was that the republican caucus apparently half the caucus gave a standing ovation to marjorie taylor. Green it was reported. She of course is the georgian a congresswoman who Over the past couple of years have done everything In addition to threaten to assassinate. Nancy pelosi suggests that There's a cabal headed by the The famous jewish family the rothschilds to operate a laser which started the california forest fires. I guess in some circles common knowledge and other A racist arguably white nationalist postings on on facebook and whatnot and the republican caucus decided not to in any way show their displeasure with her and instead Kevin mccarthy came out last night and said well you know she's she said that's not representative of who she is in all that stuff was said before she was elected to congress etc etc etc. I you know. I'm old enough to remember the multi year investigations into the clintons Their whitewater stuff that happened. I think over a decade before they got to the white house. But or how about a president obama's church attendance before entering the white house. Another but fairly yeah. Apparently they're new standard. Is that whatever happens before you come into power. It just doesn't count. I guess does not count. And of course her body for those things was not public so we really don't know what she said at certainly inconsistent with what what her public remarks were leading up to that they also as a way of maintaining their unity of their caucus of voted to support Liz cheney to remain in position third in power in the republican caucus and so the democrats They have been making Some hey of this. I of course would like them to tie this more into the republicans. Republicans themselves But this is This is the way they're going about it and they're taking a floor vote today. It's my understanding to Strip her her committee ships. Here is jim jordan. And you'll remember jim. Jordan is congressman from ohio. Who is famous for having been a A a university wrestling coach who ignored the multiple approaches from his students to deal with an abusive doctor. Who was attempting to molest Some of the The wrestlers that's at least what the testimony of those people who suffered at the hands of that Dr have said jim jordan. I don't know if he's ever publicly addressed it but here he is on fox news talking about a slippery slope about if we really hold people to account for things that happened before their congress people. It's not a surprise that he might have an investment in that her members of your own party or taking issue here. Let's take a quick break. And listen to karl rove on this very issue of we'll get your response congressman if you believe that the jews control space laser that that that starts fires in northern california and they're some unnamed high ranking government official whose got a heretofore unknown cl- security classification called q. And all the nutty things that flow with that you should be taken off the prestigious house education labor committee and confined to the dark recesses of the first building away from the house floor and then let the voters decide in the next election. She is a problem for our party. Congressman your response. No one no one's condoning the remarks that she made. I have not heard any republicans. Say that those were appropriate. So that's not the issue. The issue is once this starts telling me where it end. Sandra where does it. who's next. Let me look. Think the cancel culture. Sandra i this on january thirteenth on the house floor during debate. I told the democrats if you guys keep going down this road. Keep attacking people their first amendment free speech rights. Where does it end. It won't stop with republicans it'll go. It'll go to all of us and thirteen days later. What happened in in california. Diane feinstein's elementary schools name was taken off so this this will never end and if we don't stop it now every every single americans at risk and that's what concerns me basically this connection to those molestation charges. Maybe he's just trying to keep on march retailer. Greens good side. Because she obviously has a connection with q who's rooting out all the pedophile and government. He just he doesn't wanna get on her bad side. I mean that that's the theory. I will also add that. I have no problem with diane feinstein's name coming off a A an elementary school. And i am quite sure that that is not an infringement on anybody's first amendment rights and i think you can easily Say that hey when you cross into the Territory of proposing the assassination of of of members of congress. dan. I think it's probably appropriate for party to say. Hey we're not gonna put this person on a prestigious committee. I i would say that is somewhere where i would That would be the limiting principle but these are what the republicans wanna do. This is who they are. They really important. Take away from this and i. I don't know that many people in our audience really need to understand this But for those that don't there has been this this narrative for over a decade that the republicans fever will break that there are some specific bad elements of the republican party but overall they or maybe they're behold into their their base and they can't you know there we should feel bad for them because they're being they're being held hostage. This is who the republican party is. They are not going to change. This was completely predictable. Even i wrote a book about this. Fifteen years ago with stephen cheryl supposed to be humorous but the whole theme of it was. This is not your dad's republican party and they are. This is the trajectory they've been on and you can see you know you could hear from for the took a long time for the never trumpers to even accept the fact that like this was not a question of trump is ruining their party. It's their party is growing trump's essentially exactly i mean and and that was why the lincoln project was such infuriating fantasy and i have numbers to back this up. Axios poll net favorability marjorie taylor. Green has a plus ten net favorability with republicans in those leaning republican. Liz cheney minus twenty eight mitch mcconnell minus fifteen also kevin mccarthy's plus twenty two but both of those two in the house mccarthy in green have less name recognition but those numbers indicate to me as does all of our anecdotal evidence. The trump cunanan wing. They've won the civil war already. They are the dominant force in that party. The karl rove's were already vile human beings and part of a war criminal administration. They're on their way out. It's getting more and more conspiratorial. More more extreme as evidenced by the fact that they gave marjorie taylor. Green is standing ovation. That closed-door meeting indeed all let's take a quick break and when we come back we'll be talking to matt stoler about how monopolies are slowing our vaccine rollout.

Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me I met so just to clarify. So that i don't get anyone else in trouble. I'm actually at the american economic liberties project now not open markets so. I'm sorry apologies. Okay and Well congratulations on that. Move from one random nonprofit another. Go all right well. let's talk about. I want to talk about Actually the last two pieces that you've written actually on big Among other things but the one of the stories of our problem with vaccinations is a failure to produce the amount that that we need to have at this point but the other story we can talk about that a little bit too but the other story is we have a failure of actually getting the vaccines into people's arms at this point. What walk us through. What the plan has been in. Why we have a almost eight natural experiment as to How monopolies have been hindering this. Yeah i mean. First of all. I want to make clear. The development of the vaccine was essentially miraculous and so we have a vaccine in less than a year which is astonishing. And that actually happened because of competition is the government. Said we're gonna put six companies up and they're gonna compete to develop facts vaccines and there were pretty good contractual arrangement so this is actually a development. It's actually story of incredible. Almost apollo moon landing type of success. So let's not lose sight of that. I know it's it's easy to be like. Everything is so bad because things are bad but we should recognize that the Competition policy set up by the government did actually worked incredibly. Well all right well. Let's let's stay on that for a moment to so that we can just give people have sense about because i agree with you. And it's also it's a it's a i mean it's also a great story about government intervention and setting up this market. If you will. I guess this small market and And making sure that in in providing the funding that really eliminated the risk for these different companies. I mean the marin a it's it the reason we don't look at it as a success because it's sort of violates that narrative because it's both joint obama trump's success so everybody who hates obama's like can't admit that in everybody hates trump can't admit that but like a it the empire in a process in. I'm not a scientist. So i'm butcher this. But but the type of vaccine that we produced as a sort of novel type of technology that was funded by. I think by a which is a government agency in them in two thousand thirteen fourteen Because of the sars as sort of one of the response to the sars epidemic. And that's phonology turn out to be incredibly useful in developing this vaccine i think. Nih can Was was helpful to developing technology that moderna used and so the the the underpinning of the technology was government funded and then when the government said. We're just gonna sat up markets. We're just gonna structure markets for these vaccines and so we're going to buy one hundred million doses from every company that makes vaccines if they're able to produce a workable vaccine. That's safe and a couple of them did cut there were a couple of failures but a couple of them did and having a guaranteed market is really important. If you're a business right if somebody at the government just says we're to buy a bunch of stuff then you know you have an end customer. That actually is the case with personal protective equipment as well. I mean we didn't have the capacity to build personal protective equipment. At the beginning of the pandemic we do now largely because domestic production largely because they were selling into government stockpiles so mark governments have this incredible capacity to structure markets to finance research to make sure that there's competition so people are spurred to innovate and we shouldn't lose sight of what an unbelievable accomplishment. These vaccines are They're going to use for all other and also the vaccine technology was sort of i think developed on top of a lot of technology that was developed to address hiv. There's a lot of government funding there a lot of private innovation too. So let's let you know what we should just recognize that the development we can do awesome things like and that's important to recognize. I think that's that's that's a huge point because Far too often we lose that that narrative of what government can actually do and we should just say it's the pfizer in the modern er- that are the the johnson and johnson is a is a different technology Astrazeneca participated in this in government programs i think there's a couple of others that are still sort of extent but but the the bottom line is all of this was a an environment for these companies. That can build these things with the idea of like. We're gonna. we're going to really Mitigate your risk of that's associated with this are just just also just a one memorial point. I mean the chinese vaccines are not very good. The russian vaccine is good but one of the things people are talking about. How poor countries gonna take a while to get the vaccine and that's deeply a moral and that there's a lot of kind of merit to that. There's a lot of problems in our buildings things out but let's also keep in mind. The fact that there's a vaccine is largely due to american like this american system right. And i mean it's like saying american is good or america's a useful project is not that popular on the left these days and it's important to recognize that this is. This is the best of america like we actually did. Some great things in there was collaboration. You know the german the german innovation in this as well so there's a transatlantic effort. You know the chinese map the vaccine so use the genetic technology that which they got from us so it's like this is actually an amazing global collaborative effort along with kind of american competition policy that drove the creation of this accident. So kudos to humanity. We don't get a lot of that in two thousand twenty but that we should look at twenty s this a pretty bad year but also like kudos to humanity on that score right is it is it. I mean i'm just gonna push back just a little bit. Is it non kudos to humanity. I agree with a lot of work as you. But but i is a little bit of a monday morning quarterback kind of assertion to say it's competition that that that drove this process. Say the united states was to more actively nationalize this effort and say. Hey pfizer moderna. You're working with similar technology. Push this forward and work together. And then maybe the stockpile would have been more effectively manufactured. I and like you're saying the russian effort it seems like they're vaccine is not as effective as the technology but but done pretty well in its own right at it so first of all to look at this insanely private companies. That did it. I mean it's not your right to like to recognize that there's a lot of public involvement near The chinese think you would look at china which is extensively a communist state. They tried and it didn't work out. Very well could have been random. Could have been used. The wrong technologies Everything worked out. Ok not great. When i would say is having competition is not necessarily so. Let's divide up the problem. So the development of the vaccine is one thing getting it making sure it's safe. And then the the manufacturing of that vaccine is a different thing. There are safety elements in the vaccine so for example people these days are saying we need to like open source the technology and just get rid of the patents and whatnot so that anybody can manufacturer in fact when you producing a vaccine. Starting a new production with a new company still requires significant amount of safety checks so the bottleneck isn't necessarily the ip just asking to are very hard to manufacture. But what. I think you're pointing to is that. We really should have a national publicly owned and operated or probably a. Maybe it could be. We could do. Contract manufacturing like we did during over but publicly owned vaccine production facility right and so you can up competition in certain parts of the market but in some other areas. Where you wanna have some slack. That's not necessarily kind of fission for private markets to handle you. I mean i think having a public facility that does that makes a lot of sense right now. The government doesn't have the expertise to produce vaccines by but they could hire contract manufacturers. They do which is what one of the ways that we run like lockheed has factories that are still owned by the. Us government lockdown operates. So there are models here that we can use for innovation and production. But you're right to say that there are. There are important areas where the government should step in the public sector should step in and just sort of nationalize the process. I think that's right okay. So so that's that that end of it now we're onto the distribution and again it would be great if we had more supplies. You'd have i guess more of a margin of error but we don't have that margin of error and presumably right. We've known that at one point. We didn't necessarily know that we would have the vaccine early. But we've known at one point like hey if we get the vaccines we're going to have to distribute vaccines so was decisions made in terms of how we were going to go about doing that and y yes so so this is i wrote a piece about why chain pharmacies versus independent pharmacies like they're big partners Vaccine distribution look the difference to examine whether you know the whole framework by which we run our economy. Which has effectively we like big institutions because they deliver it that extensively deliver efficiency true so really nice natural experiment here but just take a step back and look at the overall vaccine distribution if you look at it. Just globally the us. I think it's fifth right now. And you have israel which which has a a fragmented house system but it's but it's It's not. I don't think it's a medicare for all style system but it's a public system. They are just just overwhelmingly better than everyone else. I mean i think they vaccinated fifty percent of of population because they really were. You know aggressive and competent in terms of bureaucracy. Then you have. I believe and let me. Just let me just add. There is a this doesn't really affect palestinian thing. That's not like that's it just talking purely about the logistics exactly exactly i just wanna feel obligated that there is obviously a i think a legitimate controversy about who they have decided to vaccinate but as a operation in and of itself. Yes continue moving. The palestinian israeli conflict. Out of the discussion. Which i think is probably obscures more than i agree. I agree though on the england has done a the. Uk's done a very good job. I think they're number two the way. Bahrain i one of them is is one of them. Essentially city state. The other one is a done really. Well i in the us so the us is actually a globally speaking. We are one of the best in the world at vaccine rollout which is not necessarily great because it means that the rest of the combat it. But we're not terrible right. We're not globally speaking. We're like you know we're up there so But the question is it. We still israel is just so much backseat had half the population and vaccinated ten percent of the population. So why is there this And it's a problem because there's this new more contagious strain coming really. Have to get shots in arms now so there are production problems but a lot of it isn't actually the production problem. You have states that are wasting inventory. End was really interesting as they in the trump administration said we want everybody to sign deals with cvs walgreens right every state we handle it. State by state. A lot of the vaccine distribution is kind of contingent upon whether the state government is confident. Or not and you know it's random but but but one commonality is. That is that the trump administration wanted. Everybody used these chain pharmacies and the idea behind. Cvs walgreens they. they're both acquisition machines. They didn't they were pretty small in the seventies and eighties. They largely grew by buying other chain. Pharmacies and also parts of the medical supply system like the billing system for drugs And i think aetna which is a large health insurer now that's owned by steve. These are giant healthcare conglomerates the reason they bought all of these They bought they bought their way to dominance and they were allowed to do that. Because our our agencies that are supposed to enforce merger law like the federal trade commission and the doj anti-trust division. Which are the ones who give a thumbs up or thumbs down on a lot of these mergers they said okay. We like these mergers because we think that that the combined entity will be more efficient so cvs and it gets together with their billing system for drugs which is called His remark figure out some ways to deliver better care by combining all of their cool things together. Like actually what you're talking about emo with only instead of like the government running everything. It's a kind of pride. Socialism where these giant kind of like efficient to private socialism in a sense. That's why i think. I meant more that the it would have been nationalized to a further degree as opposed to a competitive thing. So i mean yeah that's the same. It's the same argument. I know this sounds weird. It is actually the same argument for people that believe in. Not not anybody saying the when you look at the At at economists who are arguing mergers they usually just say every merger will create more economies of scale. And then you look at a lot of the people who are arguing for government ownership that means production traditionally staying back in the years ago. They'll they'll make the same argument. They'll say like eugene debs said this where economies of scale natural monopolies and all the students. It's the same. Argument is just that one group wants public ownership. The other group wants private ownership. And that's the sort of the argument of why. Cbs is allowed to exist. The way that it does in walgreens at the same thing. So when i looked at his okay well is that true is where their economies of scale in deploying the rollout of vaccines clearly in in england with the national health service which is a you know a not just single payer. They actually own all the hospital. It's been very effective. What about in the us. And there's one state it didn't use cvs and walgreens at all and this is west. Virginia and west virginia just uses locally owned pharmacies. i'll also I think it's out the cook. But they don't actually now north or south dakota one of quotas doesn't allow chain pharmacies at all and so the state governments said Will deliver our vaccine through locally owned pharmacies and that are usually owned by a pharmacist and as it turns out what happened is they. It was a much better delivery system to go through the. The independently owned pharmacist because the independently owned pharmacists. Were more flexible. They have relationships with the nursing homes where they were trying to were where people needed the vaccines immediately. They had more flexible information technology systems. They had data on all of the patients. In many cases they had personal relationships with the patients and cvs and walgreens or kind of nightmare. They overwork their pharmacists. They their it. Stuff system seemed creaky their large bureaucracies. Kind of all the nightmare. Things you hear from republicans about about the government is cvs walgreens. Where that bad and so we can. Just i think looking at the vaccine. Rollout where west virginia has far outperformed most states. Even though it has it's a different kind of governing style in california But it but as far outperformed of one of the reasons. I'm not the only reason but one of the key reasons is because they went through locally owned pharmacies that were owned by a healthcare provider aka pharmacists. Now so is the. I mean just to circle back because i don't want to get to sidetrack on the on the on that i mean and i think certainly in the context of what you mentioned with deb's that efficiencies are part of that argument. The other part of that argument is essentially mission statement. I mean the the last part in which you said with its individual of pharmacies the perception of that individual Pharmacist is that. He's a healthcare provider. She's a healthcare provider. They have a specific responsibility to their clients if you will or their patients that that is That supersedes perhaps maybe of corporate balance sheet which is part of the problem obviously with walgreens and cvs that theoretically part of the argument on on socializing nationalizing these things. Is you also. The efficiency argument is in of itself. A separate argument. It seems to me you're also eliminating job number one being profits in that. You think that's right. I like i think you have slack in the system as you with the va is publicly-owned. Very good the nih in the strait of nhs in the uk is is amazing. They upgrade technology. I think you're right about that. I mean i think the argument years like the worst. So so i think you could make a really good argument for locally owned pharmacies for distributed ownership like that's one way to think about quality everybody gets low piece property. You could certainly socialize some of these systems. I think the worst scenario is to socialize the system but also create like this weird financier ownership so like cvs are effectively banks or financial institutions that as a side business own a health insurance company own a bunch of pharmacies and ona pm and so that. That's that's like what's going on so the other question. I went to let me just read back something that you wrote that. I think really captures this. The basic confusion is that while there's some technical factors that make scale more efficient. These are often unrelated to legal scale. Right we just just tease that out. So that people understand this dynamic when we look at this behemoth. Cvs and think. Oh they have it all their at their fingertips. They'll be able to coordinate this much easier. That's a fiction that we get confused just because it has the brand. Cbs on it. Yeah no is a super important point. I'm really glad you brought that up so often economies of the key problem. Here's economies of scale. And they'll they'll stay well having a big company doing making steel or with a search engine or whenever you need a big company to do all of this right in. That's sometimes true but it's confusing technical economies of scale with the legal economy of scale right so the internet is insanely scalable institution right or not even institution on what you call it. But it's set protocols and it scaled by factor of a million ten million whatever since the nineteen seventies. It is not owned. It is not captured by a legal framework. It's not just there. There are a lot of companies are on the internet and in fact that is one of the reasons it scaled so much is because nobody control it and so that's a technical scale ability without the legal scale and to to break this down a little bit more. I mean you could have like general motors in. The eighties was the biggest car company in the world but if you look at their factories their factories were actually smaller than honda factories. And honda was way more efficient at producing so even though gm had this massive legal legal scale because of the the ownership structure they owned all these brands and all these factories in fact honda taking advantage of technical economies of scale. So got to separate out the the ability to coordinate factors of production. Like your from the actual legal structure and the the monopolist love to confuse these two things and sometimes unfortunately so socialist but it's more than monopolist that like to do this so for example with with a independent pharmacies. It's true that there are some technical economies of scale when you create digital capacity for pharmacies digital records but there's no reason why a local pharmacy couldn't just get software to do it right. There's no reason they couldn't get access to like to to the scale but also keep the independent structure one example of that would be hardware stores hardware stores you do have a lowe's home depot but you also have a lot of independently owned hardware stores and there is a they. Actually they actually are part of the co-op a buying co op. That gives them. The economies of scale of lows are home depot. But they get to be independently owned. I forget like some. It's like the popular hardware store williams on it's wbz but yeah there's a. There's a couple of them right. yeah and anyway. So that's that's the kind of the key point here. All right i. I know that You have an out but we started a little late. Do you have a little more time. Because i can go until twelve fifty five okay to just also talk about because you had another piece about The profit and political violence as we're talking about like there's a. Obviously you know people are getting democratized on youtube. You're getting pulled down on facebook. And this and that and that has been an ongoing. I am really curious your perspective on this. Like what do we do about this. Some people say nationalize some of these. Big things I for one. Don't want the government to be in a position to have to make decision about who speech is appropriate or not because they're going to start getting into actual legit first amendment questions but we do have a problem with these massive entities pumping out fake information or violent information. I mean so. How do we deal with this. Yeah i mean you don't want to get into a chinese social media dystopia right by combined fusing the power of the state and power. These big tech platforms. And that's where we're headed. I mean that's what i think you could look at stomach that democratisation and so there's two basic problems here that are related. What is the scale and market power of these mediums. These communication youtube facebook You could probably you might be able to look at twitter. But like basically these are governing the governing power and they're effectively public utilities style institutions. But they don't have a duty to offer equal terms of service so they can just do monetize. You can kick you off. You have no recourse. They have no legal obligation here. So that's problem one and you saw that. I think when they kicked a bunch of conservatives off side even deeper when they did that to parlour and so you can look at this and you can say well. This is really scary because you have a small people small number of firms that control who gets to speak online which is basically gets to speak period the other hand you have the fact that people were on parlor organizing violence and so you don't want that right and this creates a dilemma. That i think you're pointing to. And i think the answer is that you know first of all you have to make sure that everybody gets equal access to these systems. Right if you're an equal access doesn't mean unvarnished access. If you are doing illegal things like engaged in fraud incitement intentional infliction of emotional distress harassment. Any number of other sort of traditional product liability like harm. You just harmful behavior. You should be held accountable for that. Especially if you're making money off it so the reason that that's not happening is because of a law called section thirty of the communications decency act which says that if you are a platform then none of those claims can apply. Now if you got rid of that law it's not that these platforms would be held accountable for all this stuff. It's that people could bring lawsuits and say you're making money doing this thing or that thing or this other thing and then they would have to defend themselves or they would have to change their business model and that to me makes the most sense. It's just say if you are making nobody is like oh we really needs to get a hold of these these riots because nobody blames verizon. At and t. Because they're not they just deliver a neutral service right that you pay for but facebook. Google and twitter are both delivering communication service. And they are manipulating you so they can sell advertising which creates a different dynamic but they are shielded like rising in. At and t. manipulating their overcharging. You a day or shielded from liability and they should be like what. At and t. Or zoom right like they're not responsible for what we're talking about saying that they tea however facebook in google and twitter. Youtube are making money off of what we talk about it or manipulating us. So they shouldn't get immunity and we need to develop new legal doctrine to say when you're making money for something are you know you're kinda liable for it like distributor of books not a publisher of books like that's the legal doctrine that we need to develop and we need to say if you're doing illegal things you get equal access to all these platforms but these are public choices. They're not made in the silicon valley courtrooms they're made in. Us courtrooms where everyone gets access. Oh oh i just wanted to just reiterate just to make that absolutely clear when we talk about stuff on zoom we could be talking about really boring dry stuff or super titillating stuff. Zoom does not make any more money one way or another but if we do this on facebook of. We're doing this on youtube. Youtube is gonna make more money if we are more sensationalist going in certain directions and whatnot. And they're going to develop their algorithm to enhance that so control it. So they're going to ban certain things and they're gonna do monetize certain things like they're manipulating our conversations in some fashion or another for profit. That's the bottom line go ahead. I'm sorry yeah. no it's fine. That's a good clarification. Because i think you know the the section to thirty point it addresses one leg of it right which is like the agreement presented by conservatives as particularly right now which i don't think is fully unfounded that without any kind of oversight they can be kicked off of these platforms but the other bigger section and i think the more consequential one than i think of just obviously the dissemination of masters information that that is a massive problem that i had kind of pooh-poohed in years past but clearly Resulted in something like what we're seeing. So i i feel like antitrust could be the only way to actually address that and that's might be the second leg of it. Is you something you agree with. I totally agree with that. And i also think that if you look at something like you can you can very much see the the distinction between because there's anti monopoly policy sexy to thirty gives platforms a competitive advantage over institution media situtions. That have to be held accountable for what they're doing. So for example. I don't know if you saw it as was a that. The my pillow guy was on newsmax heart and the other day. Are you getting a fantasy that we see that. I'm sorry i don't know how to turn these things off tonight. I'm sorry about that. On the the my pillow guy was saying you know about the voting machines and they like basically didn't let him talk. The reason for that is because they're facing a defamation. Suit from dominion dominion voting. Defamation is a restriction on speech but it's a restriction on speech that we tolerate because we recognize that injuring people by damaging intensely lying to damage. Their reputation should be illegal now so they didn't so you saw it but newsmax stopped stopped. It wouldn't put it out anymore if we if we said okay. All right job then. Facebook was liable for that it would. They would change their behavior pretty dramatically. So that that's the distinction. Exactly all right well a match dollar. We will pick up this conversation at a Another time Folks should check out your Sub stack big. We'll put a link to that and of course Your book goliath. Thanks so much for your time today. Really appreciate it. Thanks a lot Sorry about that folks. We we We had a little technical difficulties. Being show went to a little bit a shorter with matt than we had hoped. Aren't we quick break when we come back. We will talk about a couple of these big stories. We're back So one of the stories that has come out right now the What has to happen with the reconciliation process is that certain. Resolutions are passed in each chamber which allows the committees to begin to Fashion their portion of this big bill that hopefully we'll be about one point nine trillion dollars. I would be happy if it was two point five trillion dollars to be honest with you but that is probably not in the cards. I think one point nine trillion is going to be the ceiling for this. Most likely joe biden has already signaled that he is adamant that the checks be fourteen hundred dollars. Which because in their the minds of this administration and in some because of the six hundred that went out in december or presumably actually hit people in january. This fourteen hundred dollars makes up a makes two thousand which equals the two thousand dollar pledge. We have marketing on the biden campaigns. Par here. What's problematic with it. Is that the reason why he wants to maintain this promise. He has said very clearly is because he doesn't want to start his administration off with the lie and so it is a political matter that he's talking about and okay yes sir. Two thousand dollars in his mind. It's not alive because fourteen hundred plus six hundred. But here's the problem if you need to explain that unless you have the opportunity to put yourself in every one of those envelopes where that check is going and get there and explain it when it shows up if this is a political matter you are losing if you need to explain that much and i don't think there's anybody out there who's making the argument that if we were to give two thousand dollars as a policy matter it would be any that it would be detrimental to the economy. It is really just a function of. We chose a number. It is like it's the old marketing thing. This is forty nine ninety nine fifty dollars forty nine ninety nine. And that's why we're gonna pass well okay. And also he's already starting off his administration on a lie because he campaigned on six hundred dollars per week on employment and his bill. His bill is four hundred dollars a week on employment. So i just like. There's this real cognitive dissonance that he displays and sometimes in like very aggressive ways that we saw on the campaign trail. We're seeing glimmers of at the start of his administration but So be that as it may. They're going through this. He has already signaled that they would lower the income threshold. And let me just address that too for a moment as as as a policy Matter as a political matter it may not be a bad thing to do to lower the threshold as a policy matter. What is problematic with this. Is that the numbers that they are basing upon your income level as to determine whether you are eligible for this fourteen hundred dollar check which should be two thousand dollar check. Whatever are from twenty nine thousand nine hundred and so if you have lost your job if you have had a more expenses if maybe you're in a two person households and one person has decided. I'm cutting back on hours because i gotta deal my kids who can't go to school. I mean there are literally dozens of reasons. Why in this environment in particular. But just also in general why the income level that you had in two thousand nineteen could be significantly lower in two thousand twenty now. I suppose there's some like well my incomes a little bit higher but the point is you have a tremendous amount of suffering. That's going on this country. And why would you not air on the side of helping more people that need it rather than helping less people that needed this is a. It is both from a policy perspective and from a political perspective. I think a huge miscalculation and yeah well got on good. No i thought you were. And so i just wanted to to bring up This proposal from mitt romney which is Which is interesting. And i wanna do What matt stoller dollar back on. Because one of the times. I've had him on. The pass was In the run up to twelve where He was arguing. That that barack obama's gonna do more damage in some respects. I don't wanna mischaracterizes his comments that we had an argument about Who'd be worse for the country. Based upon a whole set of factors romney or obama going into two thousand twelve And i don't want to mischaracterize the way that he presented it and accepted. Say like i. I'm certainly i feel like i've gotten more sympathetic with his Point of view to some extent. Although i had some sympathy at the time but we didn't have a chance to talk about that but i mentioned that only because romney has come out with a proposal. Now what's going to happen in the senate is. They have what is known as a vote. A rama to a part of the process of using reconciliation. Which if you'll recall has a limited number of not number of things but type of things that can be passed under reconciliation. They all must directly affect the. Us budget they also must have a certain pay for that is statutory so there could be theoretically cuts to medicare if you spend too much in this bill but there's other ways of dealing that the other thing does it lowers the threshold of how many votes you need to pass something to fifty one as opposed to sixty in the senate but it also calls for the allowance of multiple amendments. That must be voted on to be attached to the bill. And you're going to see the republicans bring up. Dozens of these amendments so that they can challenge democrats running for the senate in the next two or four years. You didn't vote for this. You didn't vote for that etc etc. These amendments are ways of basically just creating. it's a world. It's a politically performative exercise. In order to later slam. The democrats is the epitome of politics at its worst and americans hate politicians. That's what we're about to say. I think so. I think to a certain extent. But it's also look it's good. It's good to clarify some of these positions for people it's just a gnawing feature. We should just get rid of the filibuster And democrats do it. This is part of the politics. But i agree. I think it stinks But mitt romney is going to offer a legit amendment during this process that is worth discussing and that is a proposal. Pull it up here to offer each child in the country. And i think it phase out at like two hundred thousand dollars each child in the country a three thousand dollars if you are aged sixty six to seventeen forty two hundred per year up to age six that seems to be an open ended essentially benefit for four children and now the democrats already in biden's plan already had something akin to this. It was three thousand per child up to age. Six three thousand per child. Six to seventeen and matt brunette over at the The people's policy project did a breakdown of this. It is a child. Allowance is what it's called and from his breakdown he perceives it as a a better a better more generous benefit for americans then the biden proposal One of the downsides is it calls for some pay fors which would Cut into Things like Tant which is the temporary assistance for needy families. It would cut into some other existing tax credits According to brunette and again we can get really deep into this And brunei does here and where we can put a link to his piece at majority dot. Fm according to brunei it will streamline the process and make things a little bit easier But what i think is really interesting about this is that this is one of those situations where democrats could vote to include this amendment. You can grow this benefit you claim. There's a certain bipartisan quality. To the bill. It's not even clear that that romney would vote for this bill after reconciliation even if this amendment was included because what could happen is democrats could get rid of some of those pay fors but it provides an interesting sort of political cover and potentially more benefits for children going forward. I mean so. This is You know we should welcome this. I'm not going to You know build a statue of mitt romney in my house anytime soon but a second. Sorry brendan really jumped in. Yes the around. The first one is him. Just lifting the Dog onto the roof of the car The second one would have been far more complimentary of mitt romney. But there's a good thing to keep an eye on and As as we go forward we're going to be watching. There's really the thing to be watching here. Is what happens with with stuff like this You can avoid really paying too much attention to the amendment process. It's just going to be long and drawn out but the real big fight. It seems to me is going to be on this income threshold. And frankly i would have less problems with the income threshold if the measure of if we didn't have to rely on twenty nineteen measure of what that income threshold was Because that's where. I think you're going to get where people are going to get really Hurt frankly i would like to see it up to two thousand and if dropping income threshold and raising it to two thousand was possible. That would be better but also the big thing is going to be fifteen dollars. Minimum wage is going to be a big fight. I think between the much of the democratic caucus and frankly joe manchin well. Yeah i mean joe. Manchin continues to put himself front and center. I saw in. You know some of the reporting on who is pushing for these lower thresholds for the checks to the that you know it's it's very heavily insinuated that mansions one of those three centrist democrats that are going on the record with jeff side of the washington. Post which you know i like. I can't confirm or deny that. But obviously i. That's that's not a shock but the good thing about mansion and when you think about a similarly centrist kind of kingmaker type from the obama years like lieberman mansion is not as savvy and we saw that with How quickly. He flipped his position on the checks. So there is a silver lining. In that i think mansion is more open to manipulation and goodies than perhaps others in the past. I think we can talk more about this but Random has a piece of the intercept and his argument is that the very least regardless of where they are ideologically situated as a political matter. They learned from two thousand nine. they learned. If you're gonna do this stuff. I i would make it the equivalent of like if you're going across the street at a busy intersection don't stop fifteen feet in hesitate you either. Go or you don't go and if you're gonna go go because you're gonna pay the political price The political price is going to be much steeper. And and there's a real sense. The democrats understand this time what needs to be done at least to a certain extent as a bare minimum and more importantly how quickly it needs to be done. Don't hesitate go and do it. Even if you might think it's insufficient the idea that they're going to do this and they're not gonna diddle diddle around and try and get you know ten votes from people they're never gonna get him for positive all right. That's it for us today again. Reminder if you missed any part of this program out on the choice channel the peacock gap we replay at five pm. Ten pm you can check it out there.

Ravens going all-in?

"When deciding how and when to safely return to the workplace you need to be informed. That's why IBM Watson helps. You prioritize employee safety with Watson works a set of a infused capabilities. Let's put smart to work visit IBM DOT COM Slash Watson works to learn more. Mike dribbles the first head coach. You also faced as a player Do you remember about him back then? Grateful? Smart athletic tip the screen pass mine wasn't herself. Remember that. Not Long. Thirties. Transition. Nothing but love between Big Ben and Mike rebel both our teams undefeated they're facing off Sunday and even though it looks a little different these days we'll be talking about it welcomed NFL live. We're talking that Tennessee Pittsburgh game as I mentioned explaining. One thing that changed in the steelers offense for the better keyshawn Johnson was dancing over there Dan Roloff Marcus fears you saw Adam Schefter here of course, and week seven begins tonight between the giants and the Eagles shefty some good news on the Injury Front for both of these teams. Laura. The giants activated Sterling Shepherd the woman tonight but I think the census he's GonNa play the Sean Jackson is back the Eagles Lane. Johnson is able to go. We know these teams have a lot of injuries, but there are some players who will be back. Tonight were both teams good news for both sides as from Michael Thomas he was not present at the open portion of practice today the media he. Tweaked a hamstring during practice yesterday his ankle still is not right. His status for Sunday's Game Against Carolina is now very much a question sounds like I'll be surprised if he plays and unique in God we traded once already this year from Jacksonville to Minnesota now has been traded from Minnesota to Baltimore in. God gets to go home and gets to go back to the place he wanted to be all. Along the Ravens trade a third round pick and twenty, twenty one and a conditional fifth round pick in twenty, twenty two, and now Baltimore will Yanni in Gagua Campbell a look a lot like Jacksonville's defense from the two thousand seventeen AFC championship game but better Laura Yeah Adam schefter with the latest and with us all show long and gangways set to join one of the League's best defenses in Baltimore the. Ravens ring first in points per game allowed in there also tied for second in both takeaways and sacks on the year. GAKKAI joins a front seven anchored by as Sheffi, mentioned his former teammate glaze Campbell as well as Matthew Don for Nella mcphee in rookie Patrick Queen. So Marcus when you think about this move unique in got way joining the Ravens, how big of a move is it in your mind? I think it's a huge move. The name relatively doesn't make anybody move outside of football other than knowing he's a good player if you've ran across unique but the bottom line is this they have to face Patrick mahomes they have to face these potent AFC offenses. If they plan on getting to the Super Bowl, and now you add another guy that you can create a four man rush with and find the one was hopefully win them jude on Callejas Campbell. Pernille mcbean. Now you leap into the mix, you don't have to blitz as much. Wink Martindale you can rush four guys and keep you guys in coverage. We Love Humphries on the back end and Marcus Peters. No guys being more comfortable knowing that they'll have some pressure put on a quarterback without having to add Russia I think it's going to help this Dream Team tremendously if wing decides that he wants to rush four guys. Marcus right there I think when you look at what they've done in terms of trying to add some rush to it also frees up Jude on Judas been some would in witness protection, we haven't had an opportunity to see him play nearly up to his potential markets. I see you laughing my peripheral, they get a chance to now have him do exactly what he was brought. There to get after get after the quarterback free up Judah. Now, this Baltimore Ravens Defense gets back to plan the way that they are accustomed to playing Dan you've been on the steelers in this division all year long and made no mistake about it. So does this move adding to the Ravens that change your mind at all in the division the dominant team there I guess not Now, because he doesn't play, he doesn't play tight under guard and that's where the Ravens are struggling listen like I get what you guys are saying. But first of all this, this is the number one ranked scoring defense in the NFL defense was not going to be there issue number two marcus I understand where you're coming from with wink Martindale. He ain't going to change like those coordinators got ten seconds to get their calls in those. Those guys rely on instincts more often than not like he's not all go. You know what? I'm not going to bring pressure as much, and then like going to the field. I. If I'm an offensive coordinator. Now I've got go. Okay. How do I want scheme up my protection when it comes to evacuate and clays Campbell in Judah and Derek Wolfe for Williams get all that but I still doesn't I look at like the good offensive lines in the NFL because it's Because it's just case for me. Tennessee's offensive line in style scheme wise will minimize this Indianapolis is offensive line is still better buffalo's offensive line still good enough Kansas City's offensive line is so good enough and Pittsburgh's offensive line is good enough in their scheme of getting the ball out quick will minimize this I. Don't think moves big a deal as people are making it. Our. What were we live in the end when you when you add a pass Russia when you get teams third down that, you don't have to Blit Look you say wink, Martindale won't change. So you you basically saying he'll except getting a forty burger honk opponent against Kansas City because he'll do the same damn thing. The move is about being able to get more guys to the quarterback and keeping more guys in coverage. If Wink Martindale doesn't know that Dan, he needs to find something else to do because we've watched the teams have success against Kansas City and we're talking about Kansas City because we basing. This off the fact that they might have to go through them in order to try to get a super bowl to me this is huge third down let alone all of the other downs for you to be able to rushmore guys and he can win one. You got five sacks on a year you get into the quarterback. Quick. Dan. So you think the number one defense in the NFL that became more defense in the NFL because all their pressure package is just going to decide you know what because of one new player were not going to be a pressure team that made us the best effects. were. They number one in the league against Kansas City that looked like the number one in the league. Oh. There we go. That answers it right there and let me say this. Questions about this, the Ravens were all in on winning a super bowl but now you really can't question that another reporting note, the Ravens bringing in Dez Bryant for workout that first reported by the NFL network. Let's stay in the division and get to the steelers big matchup against the titans this week and chase. Klay Pool has had a huge impact. On Big Ben performances season, the really starting to get more involved in recent weeks and with Klay on the field rothlisburger completing seventy five percent of his pathogens compared to just sixty two percent. When he's off the field, he's also helping the steelers stretched the field they're generating nearly three and a half yards more her path attempts than when he's on the. Field. So key your guy, that's got a lot of experience being a receiver in the NFL. How has Klay Pool changed the steelers offense change a big time. He's giving them a true number, one wide receiver. There's nothing taken away from Juju Smith. Schuster. But JUJU goals back into that number two roadway fits perfectly. They missed big play threat from Antonio Brown. Now, they're getting nineteen yards plus a reception of clay pool that is huge for being robbed Virg- If you think about the history of the Pittsburgh, they've always had a big time wide receiver that can go the distance. You got that guy now you certainly have that guy and it makes me uncomfortable he knows daddy has an X. factor in an ex. Receiver is huge I. Mean I don't see why I don't see how he slipped in the draft and draft away got drafted but we go to Notre Dame they don't throw the ball around like the come on. Yeah. There were a lot of fevers in that draft to that factored and Dan go ahead. Yeah. I. Mean I KEEP BRINGS UP A. Great Point, and I also think it's like a change of philosophy. This offense reminds me a little bit like scheme wise of the twenty eighteen rams where they were going to run a lot of different plays out of really one singular formation and their formation for them has become bunch. This is something that they've built within their offense. I also think the. Point of media calms the other day like when Meena said that they're using clay pool the same way San Francisco uses. deebo. Samuel he's not just the receiver. He is a how many different ways times can we get the ball in his hands and we understand this isn't nine, hundred, ninety five it's not the triplets anymore quarterback receiver and running back you. Better have multiples of four or five options they've got now. Klay Pool Juju Deontay Johnson James Washington Eric Hebron those are five big time. Past game threats accused right play pool sits at the top markets on the flip side of this thing the titans gave up thirty six to the Texans in overtime win last week and he major concerns about their defense. Initially, yes. Because if you look at the sean passer rating at one, thirty, eight threw three touchdowns in that game you you scratch saying, well, this is the same defense a week before that may Josh Allen Look Life not an MVP candidate but as I got further into the game, not really a level of concern, they gave up a lot to the titans from the Houston Texas a lot of underneath route that that gained another five to seven yards after the catch, which is a big concern and got to get people on the ground Jj Watt forced fumble in their territory that was the score for the Texas as well. So Ray tell you. Yeah we. GotTa get we gotTA clean up a lot of things we gotta get guys rally into the ball. We have to tackle the ball the soon as catches A. But if you look at their first half, it wasn't an explosion of offense by the Houston. Texas they did a really good job I think they'd go back recalibrate and this defense will be fine. Because low this offense and the way they're playing the defense has to know they have a real shot at winning the Super Bowl at least getting there are pushing the team in the AFC if play well yeah and I realize it was twelve years ago but rebel playing against big been intercepting him and. We talked about that at the top of the show you gotta think that knows some of those Big Ben tendencies that he might be able to exploit. GEICO, presents, Monster Counseling Dracula tell me how you're feeling. No one understands how lonely these no one will even let me into their house I knock knock but they ignoring me. What else I look in the? Mirror. Statistics don't even see myself anymore if you don't see yourself clearly, can you really expect others to having a breakthrough? It's not easy to be a vampire, but with GEICO, it's super easy to switch and save hundreds on your car insurance. PRE-GAME HQ is brought to you by. Dominos orders something for everyone with Domino's mix and match man you order online and track your order. There's a scene in Philadelphia. We get ready to kick off week seven with a matchup between the giants and eagles couple of. Teams the both went in striking distance of first place and that NFC. So let's check in at the domino's pre-game headquarters without Paolantonio fell. What's the mood around the teams right now? Hey there Laura will like until you the mood around these two teams is nearly identical. Let's build off the momentum and the energy of last week. Let's get a win. Let's stake a claim to a division that nobody seems to want and is eminently winnable and Joe. Judge told his giants team last week's win in. Washington. was a collective rising. If we take care of business we can win some games on the road in this division especially here where no giants head coach has won since Tom Coughlin. And ally manning nearly half a decade ago and Doug Peterson told his team. The bottom line is we take care of ourselves take care of the football. We can win these divisional games and come out ahead in a very winnable division and Carson Wentz talked all week to his teammates and to himself about taking care of the football getting the ball out of his hands quickly making sure he helps a decimated offensive line by making sure is not sitting back and padding the ball in the pocket Laura. Thanks so much sal pal bet to do it. Now time for a smart lineup decisions in foreign by IBM Watson in need of a quarterback this week one sneaky option might be on the field tonight that's Daniel Jones. Against this eagles defense, he's projected to finish with eighteen points and standard ESPN fantasy leagues with IBM Watson giving him a sixteen percent chance to finish with as many as twenty two point seven points. So there you go Dan, the fantasy metrics really liked Daniel Jones. Tonight. But you have some reservations about the second year quarterback what are those? Big things he stares down number one in his progression a lot of young players do that. But that's what I'm GonNa Watch tonight this commitment that hey that guy's number one it's a good play call and I'm throwing it no matter what but you get so committed to throw him that ball because you think it's so It ends the game in an interception. You know I was in with the rams in two thousand Seventeen Sean McVeigh got jared. Goff. Their first year together and jared and Sean realized like listen number one is geared is going to play really good. But Shaun said I had to get him to play better when it came to number two or number three into progression. So what he did in practice was he strategically got the scout team defense together and said, hey, number one and this progression is this guy take him away to force your golf to work the number to work on number three in his Progressive Garrett had no idea that coach McVeigh was doing this but it forced. Him To get better at realizing just because the play looks good pre-snap doesn't mean number one has to get the football and it got them better at two to three in his progressions. That's something that the giants need to get working on with Daniel Jones yeah, Daniel Jones three red zone interceptions season after throwing for twelve touchdowns no picks in the red area as a rookie. Let's get to the browns and Odell Beckham Junior this week speaking with the media making no bones about not being happy with what's going on with the browns his own usage in the offense says he's want to be a good guy anymore. Let's take a listen to what Odell Beckham Junior said on Wednesday. I'm pissed, and at this point, I really don't care. Keep trying to make make my show look like a good guy into the world and all does I am Ryan I got pulled out of the game the coach said this is the best decision who know we're going to. It's eight minutes left and for I'd rather take my like a man. Can you know exactly what it's like to be in those shoes having done it in your own career what do you make of how Beckham is handled himself this season he's so fine. This season I think everybody's looking at that yesterday in San saying that he's being selfish because he wants to help his team. If you hear the entire clip entire for entirety, you will know that what? He said in the ended up being is he's frustrated. He wants win he's tired and losing to good teams, and that's the frustrating part about all this man. You don't even understand what it's like when you're being constantly picked on by the media because you have some antics that people may not agree with because of the position that you play when quarterbacks doing these things. Nobody says anything much. Like oh bj when Tom Brady makes a decision. He's going to scream at his offense alignment. The first thing people WanNa Holler is oh, he's very passionate. Oh, what a great leader what a good teammate and they WANNA hide behind six Super Bowl Rings TB twelve didn't have super bowl rings when he was yelling screaming when he had only two I mean, you just gotTa understand it is. A double standard at times there's no question about Tom Brady's not the only person. Obey jobe Jay is not the only person that have certain antics on the sidelines. you see from Aaron Rodgers, you've seen it for myself. You think people would assume you only thing I wanted Marcus Spears was the football you played with me you know damn. Well, that wasn't it was about winning does involve being. Part of the team it was about the coach understanding that you brought me here for a damn reason in that is to help us win period. No doubt listening the misconception about those satellite rants always make me laugh man when Tom Brady. Did it to his own land and then he didn't remember what down it was I said I wonder if the line went back and holiday Tom Brady for having that miscue listen the bottom line is this people have tried to paint ob J. O. bj wants to win football games that's always been he wants does not only be a star and help his team win like every other wide receiver that I've ever come in contact with there's been worth anything. But he also is frustrated about not being able to be intra part of building winning big games and the double standard is King we talked about this. The double standard is always don't be like we not ever going to break that barrier down is sports Tom Brady can do that and get get a pass because he got six super. Bowls Jaundice. Point Steve Kerr because he wants six NBA championships, whatever superstar or whatever God has deemed to be the go in any situation Lebron getting old on cowry or any other guys is relative to all of that. But I'm with you as far as the media don't paint OBE- J. as a disgruntle teammate, the dude has always wanted to win that's been is. Number one objective and I know that from talking to a person to me. Yeah and I hear you guys on the fact that this is not about his own personal numbers. But I will point out that he's hauling in just four point four receptions per game with the browns after catching six point six per game while with the giants. How about? This as well from Paul Gutierrez are raiders reporter saying confirmed that the Raiders Online and basically all of them in addition to Trent Brown are now being placed on the covid nineteen lists. All deemed high risk context and there no quarantine for five days plus the last day of contact, which was Monday Adam Schefter has more on this we will be discussing. At a great rabbi. Holy. Whenever, need to muscle let. Me I'm taking everything the Hook. All right. So that might have been a little teaser there to to the Dan Wagon. We gotta make some room because Dan got add somebody else who gets to sit next to you on the Dan Wagon this week. The White Tiger himself. Rob. Gronkowski we all heard all off season is going to look the same can actually anymore he's going to be able to make any catches. Maybe he's just a blocking tight now and Gronk is done over the past couple of weeks get a little more settled and getting his feet under him and look a little bit like the Rob Gronkowski you bolt and remember what did he do great near still near the end of his time in New England was dominate in the Red Zone GRONK and I mentioned the White Tiger because that's what he was when he did the mass singer, which the show that my kids love is he was dominant then he started. For Two bucks I'm back on the wagon I'm back on thinking that Rob Gronkowski is going to be a difference maker at tight end for his offense Dan to clarify. On the Dan Wagon but glad to know that Gronk has joined. He was also back at practice. Today's dealing with that shoulder issue is limited though so Tutut for the Dan. Wagon. And let's continue on with that game the raiders taking on the bucks and you've got some more information Adam schefter about this raider situation with the offensive line. Laura, all five offensive linemen are being placed on the reserve cove in one thousand, nine list because they've been deemed high risk close contact. Trent Brown the raiders right tackle who already has been placed on the reserve in nineteen list. This means that the raiders offensive line has to stay away from the facility for five days and assuming that none of them tested positive and they continue to test negative thing you build to get those players back by Saturday, today the game against the buccaneers was. Moved out of the Sunday night slot because of the uncertainty surrounding the offensive line and into Sunday afternoon that way if the League does need to move, it could push back to another week but that way also the seahawks and cardinals will play on Sunday night football this week we think that the raiders offensive line again, if it gets clearance, if it tests negative will be allowed to play on. Sunday. But right now the raiders are going through a week of practice basically without an offensive line. It's crazy to think about and here's the other thing about it. They've provided that O. Line Derek Carr to complete an NFL leading seventy-three percent of his passes this year. So Derek Carr is hoping. That they can get back in action. Let's continue on with that game and the defense for the bucks that whoever's on the line will be facing plenty of talk about Brady and the bucks offense entering the season. But the defense is leading the way through week six Tampa Bay's defense rings I in opponent qbr yards per play rush yards per game and pass rush win rates. So Todd Bowles clearly has this unit play in a whole other level marcus. You hear all those numbers, but you look at it with your eyes how impressive is this bucks defense for you? Very impressive sales look they have played magazine every level and they're getting it done guys on those levels are making plays and listen this the worst week ever to have offensive offensive line not be able to be in the building based on what Todd Bowles is doing. You take a look here. This is dean. This dude is stepping up. He played big against the bears as well. Had A big but took this one to the crib. Aaron Rodgers another piece in their secondary then you look at called Davis who I think is a sending to be one of the better corners in the NFL right now big physical getting this hand on their ball it turned it In to intercept Todd Bowles, just a little wrinkle to particular just throw Aaron Jones Offi wraps Labonte David, and this is what they been. Why did LSU BLITZ A gap rush force pressure on a quarterback, and then get him to the ground. You're talking about speed physicality a team that can play in adjust however you WANNA play the game. That's what's so good about him and I didn't even mention Winfield Julia to safety rookie safety out there he's making plays as well down very supportive in the box. This is something to be reckoned with man they speed the physicality and they can rush you without having to compromise their coverage Todd Bowles is doing a tremendous job. They call defense like offensive player play do and Marcus. Who I love that you used was playmaker. Now follow along with me when I mean that they call defenses like offensive play caller do number one they change what they show you right before the snap great offenses will change what they showed the defense right before the snap. A shift flip of the back a motion before the snap. That's Tampa Bay's defense will do those. Show you something. Then right before the ball snapped, they give you different look the sex thing. Second thing is great offenses will get to Lonzo scrimmage, and if there's a defense that they think that they can attack, they will audible to a play that they feel that. They can go hurt your defense in todd. Bowles has given their defense the ability to do that as well when they offense comes to scrimmage, that defense has the ability to audible into a great defensive call, not out of a bad one but get into a great attacking defensive call and the last thing is great offense will give you a bunch of different plays from. The same look we'll give you the same formation and run four, five, six different things out of it. Todd. Bowles has done that with this defense though lineup in the same defense or the same front people in the same places and they will run four five six different looks out of that same defense. He calls his defense like a really good offensive play caller. Does yes. They've got really good talent, but Marcus you using the word playmaker is exactly right. He puts his playmakers in an offensive playmaker type of mentality and that's why they become so good on defense since he's been there and that's what the raiders will have to deal with. We'll see what happens with their own line, but certainly key tons of weapons for your guy. Jon Gruden and he's drafting some of them smart. They're also via trade. So when you think about how that's working for him, how is grooming using these weapons I think he's done a tremendous job I mean, obviously, I've had my history coach. GRUDEN. But at the same time, he is a great play call. He knows how to take advantages of what they can marcus. and Dan calls the strength of the Tampa Bay buccaneers defense. He'll find that duck and he'll go to shoot it down. That's what he's always been able to do whether it's with Hunter Renfro, Nelson Aguilar Jacobson's third in receptors on the team. As you start to build henry rugs get him going as you start to build a team on the west coast offense one of. The first things they like to do is identify a tied in you go to the history of West Coast offense they all have had tight ends go all the way back to bill wash in the San Francisco Forty niners to John who where we are today, and in between you talk about waller that is a big key component for what they do on the. Office side of the ball, then he goes on and he draft Jacobs he gets Henry. World's he finds Renfro is just I don't know what else to say about the way that he's built this football team I know he was a dinosaur ten years ago he got back into game. No, it's. That's the way we all thought about Oh, ten years he's out of it. Right now look what he's doing it. You gotta give doing well and the other thing I'd point out guys. We haven't mentioned Derek Carr here and people questioned whether or not Jon Gruden even really liked Derek, Carr that much worse wants them to be as quarterback Derek. Carr. Exactly. quarterback but Derek Carr is thrown a high seven touchdowns against the blitz has been really good this year. Twenty New England three. Legalize Took the Super Bowl. Cells have you sweet. I know what happened yeah. Those hard and took me a lot of time to get over and he never fully get over it but I also know it in, kill me I. I. Do Ma. Thirty to falcons fans for showing that. But anyway, that was the last time Kyle Shanahan on the field against a bill belichick lead team Dan, what an Shanahan's game plan here against the pats we'll see a reunion once again. Balance and diversity. But obviously, the focal point of his offense is George Kato and we know that Patriot defense is like we're GonNa take away your best player I think college would really good job of moving him around whether it's lineup in the backfield motion motion across stacks in bunches. But I also think they're balance with people that can. We lost answer we'll get back to him but as we continue with this forty niners patriots game, what do you think about Bella check and Jimmy G. Talking about George Hill right there in fact, he is going to take charge kill the way. GonNa Make Jimmy G. find somebody whether there's random cue from Asu if I, said his name From Asu Deebo Samuel or a guy named Kendrick born you find somebody because we're not going to allow you to go to your number one weapon I know you I traded you I groomed you. I'm age you. This is Bella check. This is what he's thinking and at the end of the day he's GonNa make him go to somebody else and when he pulls that down pull that ball now that defense is going to be there to make him pay Ford Marquez Cams coming off his worst game patriot. What do you expect Sunday out of him? Last last week against them but that'd be his worst game but the season look Cambian out obviously on the covert listen being out I. think he was lethargic slow things weren't clicking all well together Dan talked about his foot work in things you can fix easily and practice, but also self evaluation. Josh mcdaniels being able to Kinda learn about cam in that particular situation figuring out the things that they had to have success I think you go back to the drawing board understand that all is not broken. No need to panic like they talked about and then push forward as far as grooming and growing this offense and cam continuing to get more and more comfortable with what he's doing. I thought I thought last week was an anomaly. Now if he has another one, there's a big concern but as of right now. Ill boogie he steal damn noon. Well, there we go. Glad can keep his nickname. Our football power index has this one is one of the closest of all week seven games guys with the Patriots holding the upper hand with a fifty point, three percent chance to win, of course, Shanahan, and Bella, check not the only reunion this week and let's get Adam schefter back in here giving us some other guys he'll be facing some former foes we'll store. Jimmy Garoppolo going back to foxborough first time since the Patriots him for. A second round draft pick obviously hasn't been healthy in recent weeks coming up that high ankle sprain but looked better last week lot of short passes and you know that this game will mean an awful lot to him into the rest of the team for Jimmy G. to go back to play against his former team for the first time Jimmy Garoppolo back in foxborough up against Cameroon as for another reunion game teddy bridgewater the former saints quarterback now starting for the Carolina Panthers. Going up against his former team in Teddy. Bridgewater played very well so far this season to be a chance to show the saints, what they missed out on by letting him go to Carolina staying in the division and the other reunion game that I know t cares a lot about his Jon gruden going up against the Tampa Bay buccaneers game right now scheduled for. Sunday. Afternoon due to the raiders offensive line being quarantined. But obviously would carry a lot of meaning to Jon Gruden to go up against the buccaneers team that once let him go and fired him. When Pink Well I think it's going to be a great game I think John and much Adams Sanders look forward to going back. Will he actually has been living in Tampa prior to go onto the raiders coach Tim. So he's very familiar with the area they know him well, but he's excited to go back faces Oh team the team that he took to the Super Bowl and won the super bowl with. It'll be exciting this video down there Chevy. We got key down there with Gruden on the screen. Jaja. Key. Those were good days, right Yeah. How much you? You enjoyed that key right? Absolutely. Look as I said about the OB J. Situation Man you have fun. You have things on the sidelines that take place we want a super bowl together. We'll never be able to thank him enough for giving us that Super Bowl at least I wouldn't. Adam. I think he's just being too nice today. I don't know what the truth though. I mean we have our differences. Laura. He's grown up. He's mature. Here you don't even. Golf on national TV don't start out well, then if you want to go off and then go right ahead. Finish off week seven of the NFL season right here on ESPN Aaron Donald Rams, hosts, Nick Foles, and the five and one bears Fi stadium in Los. Angeles the game kicks off at eight eastern on ESPN coverage starts with Monday night countdown at six eastern. So that's the end of week seven but how about the beginning the week seven starts tonight with the giants I'm so confused about what that was. It was awesome. The giants and the Eagles I. Love Our. Team here we're going to make some picks for this game tonight. So can you take in giants or Eagles Eagles? I'M GONNA take them thirty one, seventeen nothing jalen hurts will explode onto the scene and play quarterback gadgets to give him about twenty to twenty five schnaps and let him get underneath the center and they'll roll steamroller giants. Marcus. I can't wait to hear Dan I'm taking the eagles as well, and it's because Carson Wentz should be the best quarterback in the division. Now that Dak Prescott is out and he should be able to elevate this team. I know that they're suffering from injuries won't have Mouth Sanders won't have Zach Ertz Carson Wentz. His has hit some of those moments where we started out down conversation about him really having the ability to carry the scene get into John Jackson back as well and look they play in New York. Daniel Jones is Gong Boulder ball away a couple of times in this game based on their front seven from Philly. I'm taking Eagles Tonight Dan. I'm taking the eagles, but obviously keyshawn working in New York City. Every day is spent way too much time with Max Kellerman listen jalen hurts is gonNA have a part know eight to ten snaps, but it will be in gadget for he's not taking twenty-five snaps at quarterback tonight the eagles a win because they got the best player. Carson. Wentz to be the best player on the field tonight I'm taking the eagles too. So let's talk more about the NFC. East because somebody's got to win this division only the one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, AFC central had a combined worse win percentage through week six than twenty. NFC. East according to Elias the cowboys somehow on top despite having the league's worst turnover differential this season. Then we've got the eagles giants and Washington still in contention very much up for grabs. So Marcus, you can almost just like toss it up there and see what sticks but who wins this division It's gotta be Philly listen first of all for. Saying the Philadelphia Eagles need to win this division based on having their starting quarterback somebody that's competent behind there I think it's going to take Andy Dalton Awhile to get comfortable in Dallas and it may be too late at that point because someone's getting some of his guys back outshine may come back. You also may have just reinforcements he'll start to get a simulation of offensive firepower guys that can help him win games but more importantly than that Doug Peterson is there there's defense is arguably the best defense in. Now not arguably, it is just a little bit ahead of the New York giants. They should win it because Carson Wentz their starting quarterback is still intact and he's supposed to be this great qb based on. GAM- show better winning or e is not going to want to hear me talk about the NFC after this year. wits. Go Side The Eagles are going to win this division I told you guys the eagles were going to win this division in. August they have the best quarterback in the division and guess what they had the best quarterback in the division. August now they're decimated with injuries, but they have the best quarterback, their head coaches like light years ahead of the other coaches in the division right now mainly because he had the off season but they have a better head coach right now and then they have the better defensive line their defensive line can dominate for the rest of the season absolutely dominate and they have the best. Secondary. The best corner in Darius slay. So yes. Like I think people need to understand like both these teams that we thought would sit at the top of the Division in Dallas in Philadelphia are the two most injured teams in the NFL. So I know everyone likes to make fun of the division, but we have to add that context in there but the eagles are going to win this division Marcus just like I told you they were Going to in August Bro you say a lot of things Dan sometimes, I just can't believe it. The Eagles are not winning division and I don't care what you say about Carson Wentz. She told me Josh Allen was an MVP. Let's not even have that conversation. You Praise Carson Wentz a lot. He is a pick machine waiting to happen don't don't give Fu by the game against the Ravens and all of a sudden think that this thing is getting ready to turn all the way around. I. Know The division. Is Week as a whole one, hundred percent. No don't be looking at COSC-. You Dan I'll see you big monitor over here I'm just going to tell you this I. Know I'm GonNa. Tell you this for sure you all say the Dallas cowboys is out of it. There terrible Arizona took him to the woods yet no question the body Andy he dogs I start giving him some opportunities a week division win this division eight minutes come on out be serious and think about it I understand your home with eager. I think they could be at night I. Do I think they could be? With the Eagles in you're not a homer with the gobbles up. No one that. You. Got Married I'm not going to do this best quarterback thing with Dan no, I'm not going to. To do that, I had I had a cigarette. He'd. listed. There is absolutely nothing. That tells you Carson Wentz was the best quarterback in this division before Dak. Prescott got her nothing nothing. Nothing would plus season Martin? All right. This isn't the argument just saying, here's the thing you mean to tell me that you think that. Dallas let me read looming. Over the next ten weeks. All right. I think we're done there. Whatever Dan. I said the Eagles Win I think they're GONNA win. The Eagles are going to win it according to Dan and Marcus key says the cowboys will we've got time for one more thing before we go marcus you get to take Your tannahill listen everybody started paying attention. He's going against this vaunted Pittsburgh steelers defensive. He continues on this trend that he's ready for the MVP tall and him being up there with Russell. Wilson, as a guy that could be possibly tied for winning the entire thing Ryan Tannehill balling yellow sleep if he due to the steelers this real.

"Hey y'all this is. Lisa is karen and this is pop fashion starting at least nine. I can't even get an intro. You guys have missed some choice. Lisa sayings to start things off today. She said that she always gets everything right. Is that what you said. no no. that's no because that's not accurate. I always win. Oh you always win. And that's right. She told me she always wins. It was in the context of i ran into one of my exes and i was just reflecting on how good i look in comparison to him. Don't you just love when that happens. That's when life just comes out and just like pat you on the shoulder. Even i don't look good. I look great. That's the energy that i had during this interaction and i always win in the end. Just give me some time. I always win. I love this journey for you. Lisa i one hundred percent approve. I love this level of patty and please injected into my veins. Thank you because look you know what. Twenty twenty is missing being petty. Because there's so much big shit happening in the world that i feel like this year i've let a lot of stuff roloff like stuff that would bug me before. Either bugs me marginally last year. I just let it go completely but now that i'm more comfortable in this reality. I'm just like fucking patty. A sham man. This is mormon. this is the new normal. Okay i can get used to this time to be my usual. South lisa also refer to a person as having an empty head and only one walnut rolling around in there which. I appreciate that visual. Yeah the wanna is the brain instead of a brain. They just have one one. Clunky role clunky rolling around walnut. I think we all know people like that. Yeah and it's like there's nothing wrong with walnuts but having just one is not helpful and empty cavern where your brain should be. Yeah big lincoln skull so a fashion news fashion news. Let's kit to you. i don't know what to do. Tell me a story. I will tell you a story about. When a cosmetic company falls in love with the big box store and has a baby called alta shop in shop target so all of the is going to go into some target stores. It was announced this week. That there is a partnership. They're gonna have shop in shops at one hundred stores. It will be in targets. Normal beauty section and they'll still have products like target will have their own products but then they'll have cute little setup that'll be ulta also is going to open a number of stores this year but then the pandemic hit and i think this may be a way for them to do it in another way. That's pretty smart. They wanted to expand. But kinda shut down as we all know and it changed plans lisa. This is a good idea. What's going on with this. What do you think this is. What sephora envisioned when it started going into jc penney stores. Yup one hundred. The store said let's make it easier for people to come in and shop. And just get the essentials from like a curated collection but that only works when people are going to all right and so in this pants democ time. I think when people go out to shop the way i feel about it is i wanna get everything. I need from fewer stops. I wanna make us few stops as possible and get back in my car and just drenched myself enhance anti and drive the fuck home right. So the idea of going out of my way to a different store eat. I'm not gonna go or i'm going to go twice a year and really stock up but then not be there otherwise right but if you're going to target to your occasional no your quote unquote target run. Yeah you can pick up a few things or you know you're running out of something and you'll need it soon. You can grab what you need and out of there. And i think that's really smart. I'm not one hundred percent sold on this theory. But i have been thinking lately about how target is a new department store. It's doing what macy's thought. It should be doing this whole time in our for the past decade or so and bringing something and like an ulta to do a really beautiful curation of products makes me feel like the department store where it like the beauty products. Were like right in the front of the store berry similar. You'd walk through a really gorgeous area. Have perfumes have some great makeup and then go to the rest of your shopping and that's given me the same vibe here for these few stores. Yeah i'm sort of curious. As to what square footage is going to be pushed. Aside to be able to do the altar displays will they do will target have fewer of other beauty products. That aren't i mean it may be that there's some duplication that gets cancelled out once ulta moves in right because there are some specialty beauty cosmetic self care products that instead of having leg two aisles of that stuff while you put in the altar display and yeah it's the same difference right but we'll do you know if they will have if ulta will have employees in those areas. Where will it be self serve. That is an excellent question. I have not done any reading where that has been specified but it is a great question because it's like are they alta people are they target people is it no one's there because it's just like the rest of the store excellent question because i'm assuming you're just gonna go to the one checkout at the front stolen or so it could go either way but i mean as long as you don't need people to be there on a commission basis to earn than you know it could be any variety of people who are helping customers. I think this is great. I don't know what it means for alter as a destination retailer. Yeah know some of them have salons in them. They're kind of big. They have a lot of products. So i don't know what it means for that footprint that they've traditionally had but i personally psyched about this because i got a hoof it to get to an ulta near me like say near me. But they're not near me so i'm into this. Yeah i want. That was like the question that was kind of in the back of my mind was will over saturate the market with ulta and as long as they keep on the same trajectory. I think they're going to be okay. The thing is you don't want to put one of your oldest stores near a target store. Then because then you eat your own advantage yet. Because i know the the ultimate i went to most recently if i came out of ulta and sit in the parking lot in the next parking lot was a target Yeah i'm assuming that would not be where they're gonna It's probably going to be in areas where you know. It's it's like figuring out where you're putting in a new franchise of any retail location right. You have territories you have You know markets that you're targeting and there are others that might not be a good fit so i think there's gonna be some experimentation with that in the next couple of years until they get it to what they think is right but i mean it's not like is putting all their eggs into one product basket rights like they sell a wide variety of items from a wide variety of brands. And i think that gives them staying power in the market and the ability to put it when necessary. Yeah agreed well just sounded really intelligent for a few minutes. Everyone take note. She has many walnuts and her head. I went from walnut brain analogies. While i was drinking this spiked kabukicho like straight to like legit analysis. We can meet at the end of the day. Look at what my brain just did you look at us. I guess i should. I guess time for me to tell you another one. Oh oh do you want a potential fashion crime sing. The song bashing crash is my favorite subject. Even though it is only allegedly an is just a lawsuit currently. What was the last time. We talked about on problematic. Fashion photographer terry richardson. I don't know it's been a hot minute. It's been a while. But it's time because terry and the company are both getting sued by photographer and digital artist named haley. Nickerson nickerson has filed a suit against the company an richardson in federal court for copyright infringement. Saying they copied a photo she created in august twenty sixteen for a holiday campaign. That also ran in twenty. Sixteen nickerson's photo which was posted to instagram and later appeared in an art show features a woman of color in a red green and black outfit posing in front of a red backdrop. The has white stars on it. Diesels version shot by. Terry richardson features a woman of color. Who is wearing a red green and black outfit posing in front of a red backdrop with white polka dots. Do you see in your mind's eye what the similarity could be. Nickerson says that she was in contact with the diesel team who worked on the campaign before they shot their version of the photo. Yup meanwhile diesel told women's wear daily that their photos were shot in april twenty sixteen by an outside company before nickerson's images were released Something does not add up here based on reports in women's wear daily and the fashion law. It appears that nickerson found out about diesels campaign the year following. Its release so in late. Twenty seventeen nickerson contacted diesel for filing her suit and said that while diesel has spoken publicly about its desire to be an ally for black indigenous people of color rights and talent when she approached them directly to discuss the alleged 'infringement they pretty much blow her off also noted in. The suit is that nickerson doesn't want her name to be spoken in the same breath as terry. Richardson ran girl has had a bunch of sexual assault and harassment allegation allegations made against him during the metoo era. Which coincides with the time. This campaign came out. Nickerson wants diesel to destroy the imaging question. And all of its reproductions. Give her any profits derived from the use of the image. Your and some other money yes. Women's wear daily notes that we don't know how much money she's asking for it. But for such a case to land in federal court damages being sought typically new exceed seventy five thousand dollars to which. I say yes girl. Yeah that feels about right. Yeah i saw these photos side by side not knowing what the story is about. I just clicked it. On all the fighters. I thought it was from the same ad campaign up. I thought it was. I thought it was shot by the same person. Similar vibe with the model same background and i was like. Oh it's from the same. Winter campaign was my immediate thought. No but it's that close. It's that close. It's really striking. How close it is down to the materials that the models are wearing. They both have elements of leather in their alpha. It is really striking and one of the things that i was thinking about. When i first read about this issue was well if this happened in two thousand sixteen why are we just hearing about it. And twenty twenty. Why did the suit takes long. And then i played it back of my head okay. So she took her images in two thousand sixteen. Their campaign ran afterwards and twenty sixteen. She found out about it a year later. Started trying to get in contact with the company to say like excuse me what and this back and forth with what. I'm sure was diesels. Legal team can take months if not years so share however today. Yeah exactly so. She's probably been going back and forth and like figuring out what her options are sense late. Two thousand seventeen when she first saw this inflamed about you know like the illegal show takes time did diesel file for chapter eleven this year. Am i making that up. You know their name has been in our mouth recently. Diesel did file for bankruptcy in two thousand nineteen which could be a part of this timeline. Yeah truth i just pay the woman her money come on just pay the woman her money. Just pay people. That's that's all. That is all i terry. Richardson slither under the rocky. Came out of. I would like to take a couple of walnuts out of his brain. just leave him with one rattling around. Last i will say about walnuts in the next five minutes. Not making promises beyond that. 'cause you know all bets are off Next story the corp bought supreme for two billion dollars in this economy. And that's pats democ supreme luxury streetwear brand it is known for its limited drops it has a business model of scarcity it was purchased by the f. corp which own vans the north face and timberland said the body for two point. One billion supreme is expected to contribute five hundred million in revenue to corp and twenty twenty one so five hundred million dollars in one year supreme only has twelve stores globally but under via. It's going to open more brick and mortar locations. Supreme has also collaborated with this company in the past like the conglomerate it specifically did some stuff with vans a number of years ago i think even in the late nineties did a club with fans so the reason why this is interesting. Because i'm a big dork. One of the first things i thought was. Oh we're finally going to get a look at their financials because the f. corp is company which means they need to report the earnings which means we finally get to see what supreme is making. I see if this is all smoke and mirrors of. They're actually making a ton of money right. That's kind of exciting but a lot of people are like. How is this going to work. Because supreme is so limited and scope. And that's what keeps it hot and these other companies that have owns are all over the place like they're they scale up. There are huge. so lisa. was this a good move. Did it surprise you. What do you think i was like. What but there was so much other stuff going on in this kind of downside. I need to process later. Tiny to compartmentalize my fashion news. That thing that strikes me as odd about this is the push to open new stores. I do not think that jives with supremes ethos at all and i Do not know if. I would invest in brick and mortar space at this current juncture. If they do teeny tiny stores with only the jaw drop that they're doing that week that month and it's berry limited in scope. They may be able to pull it off. Okay ma'am that is called a pop up shop. Essentially i mean a lot of stores are kind of going in this. The real real announced it this this past week. They're doing many stores so they're opening up stores but they're doing mini versions of them very small scale there essentially putting up a pop up. That's more permanent. And i wonder if supreme is going to head in that direction. Who does i think. I think the problem you run into if you're if you're doing small retail spaces who's going to slice and dice up a retail space enough because the spaces that are available right. Now are not teeny tiny. True say you're gonna need somebody to send subdivide So how's that going to work. I don't know also. I don't think we're going to learn anything about supremes finances. Because i bet you they will just be able to roll that into some other category. I hate it when they do that. Lisa whatever i hate it. It's my least favorite thing. Give you a quarterly report. And they'll be like all our brands are doing well and you'll be like can i get a. Can i get a chart. Some kind of figure please right like some some some details thank you. I don't know about that one this. This is a confusing pairing. Picking out a weird wine with dinner. It's like when two people that should it be dating start dating. It's just weird. Yeah yeah and and we're gonna have to time. Maybe it'll grow on us like an acquired taste but maybe we'll just spit it out into the spoon thing i'm gone with the wind analogy off. The relationship analogy right. Okay noted well stay tuned for more on that odd couple speaking of retail spaces Transition sentence over to that if you are wondering if there's any chance that holiday shopping will be the same this year. Here's the sign that it is not jabs numbers. Here's our economic segment. According to an article from vox seasonal jobs. Reveal a lot about brick and mortar shopping. The season on what. It's going to be like sue. Get ready for a lull timeless numbers in two thousand eighteen retailers added about six hundred twenty five thousand temporary jobs during the fourth quarter of the year september. October is usually when holiday hiring ramps up retail because additional help is needed assist customers ring up orders gift. Cards put out holiday and decorations gift. Wrap some shit. I don't know your life. You do all those things so last year in twenty nineteen. The number of seasonal hires dipped. It was about five hundred ninety thousand instead of six hundred twenty five thousand. It's a significant drop. But it's not alarming but this year companies have announced just three hundred seventy eight thousand positions For the fourth quarter four seasonal hires as of mid october and that's according to challenger gray and christmas a recruiting firm that does not actually affiliated with christmas. There is a bump in seasonal hiring for sure just not anywhere near the bump seen in previous years even as online shopping has increased in popularity. And while we're not even midway through our we midway through. I guess we are through q. Four but you know even though we're not through the holiday season yet the rate of hiring so far indicates that we're not going to be anywhere near that five hundred and ninety thousand last year. So do you know where you can get a job fall out. A warehouse that fulfils online shopping orders. Yeah amazon and walmart for starters have been recruiting thousands of workers for the season not only to process new orders but also the process returns that get sent pack. And here's the thing that's kind of alarming about this. Is that workers that. Vox talked to said that. While warehouses are providing items like gloves and masks and he had sanitizer the more people you have working at one time and walking around the harder it is to stay six feet apart. Yeah of course. Yeah oh this is a shit. Show the zellerbach good. Nobody wins at the end. You know either. You are fighting for job. That's in one of these stores because you need like temporary work is better than no work. Or you've always counted on temporary work to help you do the holiday season so you have to take a risk by being in a store and fighting for one of these jobs among a lot of other overqualified people at this point right or you go to the warehouses where we know that. The physical impacts of doing warehouse work all day. It's it's really something when you combine the impact of the pandemic on top of that. Its y'all order your shit online early. This year spread it out. Do not wait and if you are working one of these jobs you are seeing we see you. We hear you. this is this is tough. And i think the answer that like oh people can get those jobs so freaking arrogant like. I've seen a lot of that online. We'll just don't go for that job. Give me a break. That's the job that's available in. Some places and people are taking jobs to do basic things like pay their bills. It's just really stinky and my heart really goes out to people especially this season. Because you're right a lot of people year after year. They pick up extra shifts. They like get a small something on the side to help with family stuff or to help even to pay for gifts or to get a discount. Because you know you can shop for your family in that store so there is kind of dislike cycle of how people work. That's getting an erupted in lots of different ways. Yeah i will tell you one semi off-topic thing that i realized today when i was doing some research is that luckily hopefully this tradition is about to die. Most retailers are staying closed on thanksgiving this year. Yes they are yeah. I'm just. I'm just relieved by that. Like no everybody stay the fuck home like the deals wait. They can everybody take a time. Take a breath take that breath out of doors. Away from humans can pack. Go eat some pack gab. Like your own individual pie. Don't be sharon pie. He can have a hand pie. Make your own pie. that's fine. i mean no. I just meant like your own size by. Oh that's fine too. We approve all pie messages. It's your look. What does the pilot eight slices. That's like two on thanksgiving day right. 'cause you're gonna go back for more. Oh break it down from he s okay. So that's to thanksgiving day The next morning breakfast and then dessert that night. That's five. You're going to be done this pie by the end of the weekend. You can do it. Will you be sick of pi. Yeah but only until christmas rolls around and you have the same again. You come here for answers. People answer i would give you this. Podcast is free. look at the value. You get that is the that is the end of my fashion news. I gave you everything you needed. And it's up to car and now to bring us home. Relevant information i will next story should now raised its prices again as sagan in this economy now raise prices for the second time this year to deal with the fallout of the pandemic. The price increases were quote the consequences of recent significant rate fluctuations between the euro and certain local currencies. And that's all the information we have from chanel. Thank you for that. it's very limiting. We did a story about this earlier in the year and may the company hiked prices of handbags and other small leather goods by between five percent and seventeen percent but this increase that came around in october was another five percent on top of that. So what chanels doing is you know how you gave us some money. Can you give us some more of that money. We didn't ask you for enough of that money. I kind of get that. They are trying to stabilize prices across economies. So you can't buy a chanel bag. And china for one price and denmark for the other like it has to be even for a number of reasons especially with luxury goods but my goodness if feels like something in their business plan isn't working right now especially if you have to do it twice a year and if you have to turn around and tell your customers this so stinky twice a one year raises a whole bunch of red flags for me. Oh yeah and i would love to know what what other international companies do about. This like there are plenty of other corporations that sell across borders. So how do they stabilize their prices. Please deliver a powerpoint to me. Because i feel like there's gotta be a better way than to price hikes in one year lease i can you imagine going to your boss and being like give me a raise and then six months later being like that race. Can we do that again. I need more money. That would be fantastic but does it happen. That is like a more sophisticated version of the example. I had in my head of like the when a parent gives you money lake cash to go get something and you don't think about sales tax and so you got cashmere hand and you're looking at the past. Can you hold on one second. Then you run off in here like dat. Dat dat dat. Dat dat is short. You do not enough money. He's like well. That sounds like a personal problem but then he gets out the extra two dollars for you. That's what this sounds like. Yeah it's like when you first learned the dollar stores really the dollar six cent store yet rights right. Insert your own tax rate here. Yeah it's it feels like they're not doing their math correctly. I mean beautiful percy's candy. Do math does good close bad math. Starting my life next story. This one's fun. Diane von furstenberg is doing a home line for him. Yes and a surprising move. Devi is doing close. Which i would think would be the more natural partnership. No devi f is doing homegoods. It includes vases. Cushion covers blankets candles and features some of her archived prints. Ooh which is so cool. It will launch next year in stores and online. So even though. I'm a little surprised that she's not doing apparel homegoods. Or what selling right. Now she might be in the sweet spot girl you know. The margins are so much better for homegoods. You having about this okay. We talked about several several weeks ago. That dvr as company is in dire financial straits right. Yup if you're trying to make some money you don't do a diffusion line with h. m. for a whole bunch addresses in sixteen different sizes. Right you can have one throw pillow and make a thousand of them and make at least the same money as you'd make on each of those dresses with less work. I feel so much more in the mood right now to buy a pillow. a blanket. clothes aren't the thing that's comforting me like my home. This is why. I bought five thousand candles. I can't stop by candles. The only thing. I know how to do right now. As like we're gonna hell but it's gonna smell like gingerbread. It's gonna be. Yeah it's it's that's what people have used for right. Now we're in our homes and let me tell you people all of you who are outside the. Us are probably bored with your atm home. Section united states. atm locations tend not to have the home section. We are missing out you all because let me tell you when i walked the agent in paris and i saw home section. I was like shit. Did i bring just to carry on. I was like real mad about it. There are only there. Are i would say under a third of the locations in the. Us have the homestore is problematic for a number of reasons which we have discussed at length on the show but can do a really good palo they can. They have a good home. Section one of the stores that's local in my area and i've always pleasantly surprised by how they curate their homegoods because it seems like not an overabundance seems like the right amount it seems like the right pieces to do small accents and i appreciate that freshman of your place one little nugget. A time in some good prints to because That's gonna be nice. I need to look this up that they are fashion news moving onto. Let's go by does listen letters. Pupukea p o on this is from.

I've listened to your podcast for the last couple of years and adore having our weekly fashion tat featuring sabrina the intern during the pandemic. I've needed you even more since april. I've been through a break-up with my long term partner. A move from either aho wisconsin in lockdown with my sister's family to kids just five and six and a pair of prizefighter size mastiffs and now the election or as i like to sing fo- election crimes are up subject and assuming that's the tune she wanna she used for that. I am so glad to be able to have a weekly dived into the world of fashion and fashion crimes. And make sense of how this subject connects to the larger zeitgeist of the moment. We're living in thank you for the work you do. The community are building and enjoy a bit of a cash tip o. P. s. for me my pants stomach uniform equates to a series of matching top and bottom fleece fast rebecca thank you. What a lovely now. We have really appreciate that. Rebecca and grow your life. Sounds cozy right now. Yeah it like. This has been a year for you but your blessings common friend. It's common. I said it on this podcast before. Like one of my favorite quotes is some years. Ask questions and some years answer questions by zora neale hurston. And that's what you're going through friend. Oh yeah yeah yet. This year asked the question. Why am i living with these. Two kids into mastiffs y. That sounds fun but slobbery down the road. You're just gonna laugh at not yet but like down the road. You're gonna laugh about it so much. And i'm going to be excited for that part of your life too. I think that's it lethal. What's your one thing this week. Oh shit i shit. What's my one good thing. Well i thought maybe it was going to be that giant alligator. What juicy him on the news. Which now which alligator there was this giant alligator on a golf course in naples yesterday during the hurricane. He was big but until right before this show was recorded. I thought it was fake. So i was like. I can't talk about that. Big alligator. But now i just found out that he's real so maybe we'll come back to that later. You can yok and remind me my real manga thing. Is this so yano. I volunteer volunteer volunteer shelter. Y'all know that. I volunteer at namm shelter. He and when the pandemic hit and we have to close. I was like shit. Ain't no animals going to get adopted this year while we reopened with a whole lot adjustments right and it turns out that we have adopted out more animals this year than we did up to this point last year like we have be our numbers by lie and it's kind of magical You have to come in by appointment now to see an animal. You're considering adopting. And i think that helps people really think through whether they're ready to adopt. It's not like pressure when you got there. It's not like you have to go home with an animal. But i think it helps people who are thinking a lot about companionship. Now think through what their next step is and it's just been amazing to see how many animals we've been able to help this year. How many people. We've made happy. Having a new pat. We even able to help with a horror situation where five hundred cats were recovered. Holy shit lisa go. Five hundred live totally fine. Cats were recovered from one building. Oh my gosh which like you would think it's a stuff in my dreams but no that is my nightmare. Cast need space okay. They need space and fresh air but like we were at the point where all these shelters got together and divvied up all the cats so we talk my gosh. It's amazing took china the kittens by the time. I get back there on the weekend. Half of them will probably be a new homes. And it's just really exciting to see that we've been able to adapt and like make even more progress than we thought would be able to this year by changing a lot of things has been easy especially for the people who work there each and every day. But they're doing the work so if you're curious about how ding dong these cats are and sometimes puppies. Its friends of strays. That's the name of the shelter. And if you if you've ever looked at my instagram at least tele them all the time because i do add you free advertising for their cats. Every time that. I'm there so you'll be able to. You'll be able to click through and check them out on top that i mean to say what is your one thing i always win. Apparently you do. i'm kidding. this is not a competition. I'm just excited to know what is happening. Well i was going to choose a very simple one thing alligator. But now since i got challenged i'll just tell you that my one good thing as i won a journalism word this week and it was awesome. I won a national press award for journalism and the category of humor. Because it turns out your girls a funny bitch who knew who knew. I had no idea where this comes from by the thing that i wanted to tell people. It is nice to receive this. But the thing i wanted to let people know is that i nominated myself for this award. I did not wait for somebody. Nominee award really isn't essential my life but i knew that i have to control my career in some way. And so that kind of spurred me on. You don't have to wait for somebody to say you're doing good work. You can nominate yourself. It's kind of humbling to do to be honest with you. It's kind of like but like who cares. Part of this is just learning to be your own advocate. If you are feeling shy about doing something like that. I would just encourage you to throw your hat in the ring. I'd see what happens. It may not turn out but it may who knows but you have to have the courage to kind of just like just to try because then you get like laugh about it later on like hair. Her i'm funny. And that's the real reason for awards. Did you ever thing like when you were a little baby journalists. Did you ever think the award that you might get for. Your work would be in the area of humor absolutely not now. Honestly i like. When i first started out i worked in television. I worked with nbc. And i did a job. That i really hate it and i was like. I don't know if this this work is for me. But i took a winding road at the thing about it is. That work wasn't for me but this work is. I had to find my niche within a larger field. And i didn't realize that when i began i thought it was all or nothing but as it turns out. There's lots of things you can do under your field and that was an education so if the light bulb just went off in your head is car and was explaining about finding the niche in your field Karnei during the show and beforehand has floated through various versions of our own careers and various and we are now in our mentally thirties and have like hit on it. Like the place where we feel like we belong. I feel like. I can speak for both of us. Say that young. And so if you're like worried that you are not in the perfect place in your career field. Just have confidence that sometimes it takes time and it does it for some people it takes into their forties and fifties to really feel like. They've hit on their niche. Don't lose faith if you feel like you haven't really settled into the right spa you guys. I worked for so many astles i did. Lisa was there for part of them. I remember them all. And i would like to say that. I've won against all of them as well. Lisa keeps winning and keep having walnut brains. That's essentially what it's about. You gotta take your you have to take your victories. People aren't going to give them to you. They're journalism awards. Walk up to the table and take them actually. Police follow the rules. Follow the rules to the t- too. Because look when you do that wrong. But be an advocate for yourself. And if you are not feeling confident in yourself you know who's going to be confident knew me and karn. We are your hype. Women we are. We absolutely should be running things one hundred percent.

It's Latino USA. I'm marina Hosa today, the story of this s and a life changing decision that happened in English only. For this episode will sometimes be referring to people with only the first initial of their name. And that's because this story involves children, and we want to protect their identity and privacy. Producers Ashley, click and Genesee Moga traveled to Alabama to tell us the story of the day, some ideas, Ashley click is gonna start us off one Sunday morning August. Janice, and I drive a Holy Spirit Catholic church in Huntsville, Alabama, huntsville's of flourishing tech hub in a poor rural state as small but growing Latino population. It's hot out. And we watch families run through the parking lot sweat spot showing on their Sunday. Clothes. Holy Spirit is one of a handful of Catholic churches in Huntsville. And the fourth sermon of the day is about to begin the Spanish language mass. The church's pack rose are filled with children, parents grandparents all dressed in their Sunday. Best mothers, soothe frustrated babies while latecomers line, the back walls of the church and listen to the sermon standing. The pastor a white man reminds his congregation that this mass is the only Spanish mass in the county into dozen fifteen the church welcomed the new member that the us Ashley, and I met her in her home in Huntsville, where she lives with her force on. Early thirties. And she stands about five feet tall cheese originally from rural what the mullahs and has been living in the US for about fourteen years. But she only knows a few words in English. So he spoke to her primarily in Spanish, which is her second language her, I is a mind, language called gun-ho bide have energy to talk tennis. Soon after she moved to Huntsville. That's a man in the moved into gather therefore sons over the years, he became abusive. So that has got a restraining order against him. She left him, and then X was deported around the same time, she had one more son with a white American man. She knew from work, but he was never really in the picture. So that was left alone with five, kids, and the small city of Huntsville, and the even smaller Spanish speaking community word got around that there is a single mom with five boys who might need some help and one day in the spring of twenty fourteen a bunch of cars showed up at terraces door. You got on which scuttles they remember from the church Holy Spirit. They brought diapers esta if she needed any help the gay kit, Tunis it us are you the mistletoe and get the most are you the Terresa appreciate the support? If you accept that as a woman we're calling 'em a light skinned. Mexican woman knocked on today's door. I'm was pretty high up in the church. She was the secretary of the Spanish language ministry, and that's an Shasta to give up a child. At the time, Theresa told 'em directly. No way. Libby. Hey, Yuna way, equality, thumper. Call aware that up there. Akwa persona young. Sierra, no, I won't give my child away and I'm not letting anyone adopt him even if I know them she's hold them. Theresa thought this subject was closed. They talked a little more 'em told today, so that she didn't have kids and later Astor for boys were baptized. A the hokey kiss salad. He can 'em invited her to join the Catholic church and told today, said that if she wanted to have her kids baptize, and if she needed godparents, em would be happy to be the godmother for one of her kids. So here's what that does is at five kids alone out of bad relationship and without much support. And all of a sudden this local church showed up at her doorstep. Group path like and what the mullahs in had missed being part of a church. She decided it was time to get her kids baptized, but she needed to find godparents I and she didn't know many people that time so she asked a member of the church to help find godparents for sons, you'll Eddie, hey, Phyllis, quadrupling, Omar in a so put issue, Anthony Lama in on all the loosening. She told the woman that she only needed four godparents. Because when m came to visit her, she offered for her husband to be the godparents to her youngest son. The one who was half white usually, this role goes out to members of the family like an aunt, or an uncle, or close family, friends, and Spanish parents color, child's godparents, or bothered it, and there isn't a word for this in English. But it's literal. Translation means co mother for co father like you're raising the child together. So the fact that that as a hat. Find strangers to play this role for her kids was somewhat unique. One of these strangers ended up being Umberto castio from vectors young in his early thirties back, then he was pretty involved in the church. And when he was asked to be the godfather to one of three sons. It made him a bit. Nervous off think about it. Because, you know, be the simple of ski are going to be the, if the gut father I have to show him like, who I am. I'm back to grow up Catholic. And he understood that being a godparent is a big deal. He didn't know today saw. And if he became a godfather to one of her sons, he knew he would become part of her family, her compadres. I'm back to decides to take this on. He becomes the godfather of three says oldest child any start spending time with the family taking the kids fishing out for ice cream. Luckily for the family on Barrett's is a mechanic when the car braille, you know, the got five we saw which there. Pretty quickly all five kids. We're finally matched with godparents.

After the ceremony the Owen offer lunch to celebrate at eight buffet a Chinese restaurant in Huntsville, although it will need in the okay. Swayne your army. Everything was beautiful. That says I was so happy. Her children were part of the religion she grew up with and that s finally had a community. After that day, little by little things started to change and JP Roloff. They had a big house in a nice part of town. The couple wanted kids, and according to the church members, we spoke to they were pretty open about the fact that they biologically couldn't have them. So when they became godparents Theresa says they wanted to spend more time with her youngest child gave with me beyond each will get of whether in Las Meninas in LA status Maho, Kitwe when Oles basis Kiyo kid it available. I lean. Linnea says they told her to leave the child with them overnight. So she didn't have to keep driving back and forth, picking him up and dropping him off quickly one night became too than three and soon the child was spending weeks at the couple's house, that is, she really needed someone to take care of her kids, while she was working.

Didn't know what that was so m explained out of Sylvia is gonna to at we allow the CO two service con Kinloss, Dan AMT old her that the church allows open adoption, and what that has stood from 'em. Was that an open adoption is, when, you know, who has adopted your kid, so you can still see your child, then that enemies, moderate, UK, your and have the same rights as a new adoptive parents? Umberto the godfather of one kids says Terresa asked him what he thought forgiving her youngest child up for adoption issue. Like, I'm going to be all which you can do it with all of them. He's too much for me. He remembered that Teresa felt like she could give the boy to Emma JP, but only under the condition that she would continue to see him and be part of his life. But what the role she was giving him in a coke show, like to see him forever. Anto tresor. They should go to a lawyer to talk about this open at option moment. Boko confab out the ESPN impeded almost better level. Lydia? When he stopped being the us up the boy at Quantico level at this point says she was tired of them asking her to go with them to see a lawyer. So she said, okay, she accepted. Their first meeting with a lawyer was in October of two thousand fifteen eight months after the baptism that as the lawyer spoke mostly to JP ams husband spoken English. Remember that in rural what the mala enter family spoke on a Mayan language. She didn't really speak Spanish until she was a teen. But now that's what she uses most in her everyday life in the US, and she only knows a few words in English. So the couple translated for her the lawyers meeting from English to Spanish, but they only spoke to her, when they needed to ask her logistical questions, like, where's the child social security card? She says they met again with the lawyer in November, but again, no one spoke to her. She just sat there smiled and nodded. Says that during this time she started to get sick she called 'em and talked with her. You're less of C status. Bunna the Lino west of e-e-eddie hypocritical on the status. Nanka marijuana pro VERA Neo Kris told Ammon J P, the same thing. She told him back, though, if they wanted to adopt the boy, she would agree, but with the condition that they would never prohibit her from seeing her son, when she wanted that it would be an open adoption Estaban this simple as the ac-. She says, I'm agreed. A few weeks later. I'm GP told that as there was one more meeting with the lawyer this time instead of going to the lawyer's office, they went to the courthouse and meta judge. That a says chief didn't understand what was being said. It was all an English. Noman the had not. No misbegotten neither Nata. They talked for over an hour. Then the judge shook that has his hand outside the courthouse MSG, p told her that this was our last meeting. The adoption was complete. A few weeks later today says she went to the couple's house. It was a typical visit she brought along her for boys to the could play with their little brother JP until today said they needed to speak to her in another room before Theresa says most of her conversations had been with 'em, but this time JP spoke to her many hooky gallows, damn what you k if then we will. Kager on me. He said they loved the boy, very much, and that they had her and God that the child call JP dad for the first time Ian simple saw Yoda JP started to cry. And then he told her gallows much commodity bit wacky. Maybe who. Behold ale. For L B, and they'll new. April authors to ceremonials Kamara. He said, we're sorry, but you can't come over anymore to see the boy it's better for the child and for his brothers because after you leave he's upset and cries, so you can't come over anymore. Theresa says she didn't speak. Didn't say anything. She just stood there stunned. JP finish talking. And Theresa finally said, John also lead here. You must become here and ferris Yusupova. Converter me Teresa to- JP. She didn't accept what he said that. This was not. But they had talked about, she had trusted them she agreed to share her child with them, not like this. As she went into the living room and hugged her little boy. Dan, Lothian basil. John. What about in? She kissed him and told him she loved him. And then she told him to go be with Scott father. She gathered her four sons and left. And it's only when she walked out of the door that she started to cry. That night that is called a friend from church and started to tell the whole story from the beginning, her friend told her she knew a lawyer that has such a talk to my recollection, Theresa. She's a small woman anyway, but she seems scared she seemed overwhelmed. She seemed fearful of the system in general. This is Aaron Ryan. He's a lawyer and Huntsville and explained to Erin that she thought the adoption of her child would be an open option that she would be able to see the child and have the same rights as the new parents. So I asked him about this. An open option. Is that exist in Alabama would you're calling an open option. Does not exist. Alabama at all. In Alabama opened adoption does exist. But it means something completely different from what tennis thought it was each state has different laws around option. But in Alabama open only means that the child and the birth parents know, each other's names and information that's the birth mother retains no other rights. And ally. Bama, there is no law for statute that recognizes an open adoption like what threats understood. After an adoption Aaron explain to the mother is no longer the parent officially, they'll get a do burst of kit with them list, as you biological payers of the child so Therese's name is erased from those records. Interest case Erin says, there are several things that don't seem normal all the adoption papers were an English nothing was translated into Spanish for that Esa. And having the adoptive parents Emma J act as a Spanish interpreter for Esa. Aaron says is a conflict of interest. Aaron offer to help that, but she couldn't afford it. A few months after JP told that as that she wasn't allowed to see her son anymore couple packed up and along with the child, they moved out of state. We wanted to understand the details of this adoption from someone who is there. So we found the address of the lawyer, who handled it his name is Michael Robertson, so we stopped by early in the afternoon, Michael agreed to talk. But says there are things he can't tell us unless that us present. Little. I just want to take a second to note, how strange this is because that says, not Michael's client. He has no responsibility towards her. No relationship, but Michaels adamant that there are things he only feels comfortable saying what that has permission throughout several interviews that has has told us repeatedly that she would like to talk to Michael about what happened during all those meetings. She sat in so we call her, and she agrees to meet. So we come back in the evening. That's gonna Soviet this office the other. And Michael's waiting for us. We sit on couches in the waiting room after the offices closed. Michael has a stack of files next to him. He wants to talk to today, sir about what happened three years ago. He starts by telling her what he thinks was happening in her life at the time the ship in a long time ago and I can't remember everything, but I do remember this, and I think Theresa, you should remember this Michael says that the father of today, says youngest child the white American guy a sexually abusing Teresa, I'm coming to her house harassing her. You can recall wherever you want, but I want her to understand that the he was coming over their own abusing as Michael talks. Theresa looks confused lost. Janice interprets for her and tennis explains that this isn't true. I mentioned the police. I think she understood police. I think she wanted to go the police now there was no interpreter. There was no interpreter there. But it was clear to me that I repeat it as over and over again. And I think she understood a lot of that. I mean we've met for hours. She had to understand she has to understand that she clearly understood. Was the interpreter in the room with you interpreter was again? It was it was. It was an I have to say this. It was I can't really say it's my client. But I it was my client and why. But even if there was physical abuse that doesn't justify an adoption, if that didn't know what was going on. She must understand English. I think she does. In Guinness Book, but the Mon online Endo must go. No one have gone by lower hyphen return one. One. She says she understands a few words, but everything you're saying, she doesn't, and we've also been with her at her house, and she doesn't understand her son's. Michael says that what he eventually understood was that Theresa was giving up her youngest child, because she was poor and that she wanted to get child support from her ex partner. The father of her four older children. Three says, she never said this but Michel is adamant at, in her gestures and her nodding, and whatever interpretation, he was told that this is the other reason to give her child for adoption. I think she Shirley. My was that she, she wanted this adoption to go through very much excited and merely from the expressions, if she didn't understand on her face was to make sure this thing went throws quickly as possible. And I think she was driving force for this. I believe in my heart that she was no. She's saying she's not then something's wrong. Okay. Maybe there's a lapse in memory. I'm not calling her liar. I'm just saying, but this is my understanding was expressions on her face. She was all smiles. She's not smiles. Now, I'm sorry. I guess I'm just. I understand that. I guess I'm just wondering as a lawyer when the party that's interpreting, obviously, has an interest in the case. Is that a concern to you? Well. It is an it should be. And I guess if there's an error here of. It is clear to me that that was that was something that I probably should have an interpreter. But usually when people don't want to do something, and I am questioning them over initial repeatedly. Okay. There's a different expression such as there is right now, this conversation continues on for three hours. I interpret what Michael says, at that SIM Spanish, and then everything that has says back to Michael an English. I'm sorry, Theresa that I think you're unhappy over the fact that you didn't think they would move away and they did move away. And I think that's the only reason why she's complaining now. I may be the only reason at all. But I, I think she understood about the close to option. I just thought maybe she thought that they were going to stay here. Maybe that's it. I translate this to the Esa allow the your three total that one areas Medicare on Leonora me, who has no. She was upset about everything. She was said, even before they moved when they told her she could no longer see your son. She says, she cries all the time for her son. And suddenly, talking more about everything that happened gets her emotional won't be combined. Let let go. Your comfort him in Ghanaian, your K necessity, who need who is poor kennels. You don't mean look at me here to noise topping. She's not who she was before that says this person who always mild, because the people who she trusted betrayed her. I understood that needed a son that says, and I shared my son with them and look what they did to me. At the end of our meeting. Michael says he has a recording that as consenting to the adoption, but he can't send it to us because of attorney client privilege. Huntsville, is small enough that Michael actually goes to Holy Spirit, the same church as that as a couple. This is something that was a theme in our reporting that us friends are in the church, and she also said that people at the church had also encouraged her to give her son. We wanted to better understand the circumstances around the adoption. So we called holy spirit's Hispanic ministry multiple times, but no one agreed to be on the record for this story. We didn't get a comment about these specific questions. But people were clearly upset that we reached out to the ministry about the story from what we understood this adoption had been discussed in the community and from our phone calls, we understood that. It's clearly a point of tension, but the people we called said this had nothing to do with the church. They said it was a private adoption and a private matter. They also said many times that MSG P were good people we try for months to get in touch with a couple and JP. We Email and call them and leave messages in English. And spanish. I'm Janice, yarmulke better step on. Let's say hi, I'm calling to try to speak to my name is Ashley creek end nor response. It was clear from our conversation with Michael that there was no proper interpreter present in the lawyer's office. But what about in court? I s we spoke to the judge who presided over that as Dopp Shen. So we wanted to judge raglan because I'm one hundred percent sure. But he was the judge that, that he did remember it specifically. But he said it probably wasn't a big procedure. He told us most options were something he called a sign only where he just signs at the bottom of the final adoption form. He said, if that didn't ask for an interpreter, the probate court wouldn't have provided one. In fact, the judge said that in his eighteen years, he's never used an interpreter and we found out that's not that unusual. We called all the probate courts in northern Alabama, where thousands of quantum on immigrants like Theresa live twenty-six got back to us. Only six were sure they had ever used interpreters in court in the Steph, Alabama civil court does not cover. Interpreters. We are not paid to go to civil court and probate is one of them. That's my forget us, his a certified and trained court interpreter and for the past fifteen years mob. He's been interpreting in Spanish, but never in probate court instead, the non-english speakers have to bring their own interpreter weather. It's trained or not probate courts deal with small everyday legal stuff, marriage licenses. Wills, but also some serious matters like committing someone to a psychiatric ward transferring a piece of property, and like anthrax case certifying adoption, not being able to understand what's happening in court is a violation of a person's due process, the fourteenth amendment. But that doesn't necessarily translate into state courts, providing interpreters, according to law in Alabama, civil courts including probate are not required to provide or pay for an interpreter. Instead, non English speakers have to bring volunteer like a family member or a friend just like what happened when M J P interpreted for threats. In two thousand sixteen a few months after they moved a couple sent that letter in Spanish. The first line read on a commodity, believe it or not, we're always thinking about you and your children. It goes on to say they haven't been able to stay in touch, because they say that center, family have harassed them with angry messages. The letter ended with them telling her there will be a time when she can have contact with the child again. But only went that understands the child now belongs to another family. With the letter the couple sent three photos of the boy one is of him at his third birthday party sipping on a carton of juice. These are the last pictures that has a has of him. Thanks to producers, Ashley clicked and Genesee. I'm Okafor that story over three years have passed since the last saw her son in Huntsville, Alabama at this point. This has at least one option. She can hire lawyer and ask the biological father to come forward and contest the adoption. But they says she doesn't have the money to do that. Adoptions like this one between two families without any agency involved are confidential so it's impossible to know how many cases like this has happened in the past, what is clear, though, is that the probate courts in Alabama, that handled these kinds of adoptions are not required to hire interpreters as a result. Many life changing decisions like whether a child leaves one family and joints another are happening in English only.

How many kids do you have. And how old are they amazon. I have five children. We have Joan twenty one on just turned twenty. One elizabeth alex and emma or both fifteen. Joanna and elizabeth are biological children and ana alex and emma. Our children from russia china and south korea. Incredible got four kids myself. We've got three boys and a girl and we didn't get to go on. The fourth tried to catch up to you but we got so If you could hear just take a minute to hit my listeners with a little bit about your background and what you do so I am a director of landscape management from the university system in georgia. I'm stationed at one college right now. And a bit in landscape industry think about twenty eight years professionally about seventeen years but Growing up and i'm a father full down followed. The family keeps me busy and we have a little side job. Reality show seven little johnston's we'd have been filming for almost seven years now. We are currently shooting season. Ni- yeah obviously. The show has been a big success here. Trent and You know along this journey that you've had landscaping reality. Tv a longest journey. How old were you when you first. About how old you became a father and had to becoming a father kind of change your perspective on life so when i was nineteen and see what sixteen really convinced her mom and dad. That was a really good guy. And you know. I'm betting armlet amber and we married six. Excuse me we met at nineteen hundred sixteen years old. We married when we were twenty. Two and nineteen amber during that are courtship in our dating amber had a few surgery. She underwent a major brain surgery by the doctor. Ben carson who ran for president while back gupta. Johns hopkins hospital and then Almost a year later to the day she a major back surgery and you know that was a tough time in a struggle for us but we made it through and we knew that we could get those two things together. We made a very large wedding. A lot of family. Friends joins us and shortly after we got married in november amberg at pregnant with gentlemen in april so she said she was taking birth control. I thought their attacks but The good lord blessed wonderful kid and we were excited and then we had elizabeth two years later. And after we have elisabeth at jona you know we felt like our family wasn't complete but at the same time while amber was carrying of jona analysts with played a toll on her body when she delivered elizabeth morning. She delivered elizabeth. She was fifty one inches around and she's only forty eight inches tall. You know we knew that We would expand our family. We do it through adoption on a lot of foreign countries overseas the acceptance of local people is not like it is here in the us. I mean we still have a long air. The us not just for people but for other individuals But you know we. We found ana and i came home one day from work an- and all this paperwork laid out in this picture. And she says trent. I've found our daughter. And i said i didn't know she was missing. She's now found another daughter and I honest. I signed all the paperwork for auto before i ever saw pictures for her and that began our journey and what little two three more kids or family incredible. I've had several dads on here. Who have adopted. i think it's It's one of the greatest forms of law is is the adoption process. Now for you guys. You have You adopted from three different countries. So what was the genesis of. That was the reason behind not staying with the same country and adopted from there. What was dj genesis of decide to adopt from three different countries. There was never a board that we selected from and each time we were expanding our family. We were never significantly looking for adoption. We're never planning to adopt at that particular time. So amber work with organization Matt roloff at the time was really involved. In our organization amber was district director and she was helping some other members of the organization. Place children up for adoption. Orphanages in adoption agencies in the us would contact organization and as we knew prospect of family. That would be interested in this chow. In ambra would looked over the bios. We knew some friends and families that were interested and every now and then amber would come choose. Say we can't pass us on up this one she to us and that happened three times so on was four years old when we found out about her hand. She was four years old when she came on. Russia typically required you to make two trips for the adoption. We're fortunate that they approved us. We only had to make one trip The i'm we over there for sixteen days. It was an adventure re landed cold turkey. We didn't have all the We didn't pay all the extra money for the chauffeur's and the administrators to take us and do everything we run a budget. We're on a tight budget and we. We landed in moscow moscow for about five days. then we flew over to western siberia. We over there for about eleven days and then flew back moscow to finish up and come along so that was an adventure. We found alex when he was Amber fouled out about alex video again another adoption agency pushed out his information in a video of him out and amber saw the video. It just fell in love with him at that video. Alex was about two weeks old four weeks. We were like yeah. I think he needs to come home. So at six weeks. Oh we had signed papers. And when alex was six months three days old when we met up at the atlanta hartsfield airport and we met up with a gentleman who has a nonprofit organization. He's retired pilot and he was an adopted child and he flies to foreign countries in eastern transport agent. He brings the job into the us and basically handed them off to the doctor family. So we did that and then we adopted emma when she was five years old. We found out about what she was for. Anna's adoption took a little bit longer. She came home. She was five. We flew to. China had a great time. Great visit with him m bonded with us. Very quickly. I'll never forget the very first time. She walked up which she came into the room. You know. I knelt down and we had a little magical moment. We actually have the picture of a amer was talking and doing business channel about the adoption. She always handled all the business out of the adoption. You know i was the come home. Sign ear you know right. The jags pass the money. And and pray the good lord that everything gets mailed often sent to where it needs to go. But i was interested in. I wasn't interested in the paperwork so Came home and she didn't miss a beat when she counting on so she pulled out she put the other four in for ring she was livewire and but she's also she's settled in good and she's done very well. Yeah incredible soft trenton. And i know. I had Bill clinton on the show here on the podcast a while back. I know he adopted as well. And and the little people big world has been very popular your show his show. So what was the genesis of the seven. Little johnston's what was the genesis of you guys are getting approach to show. How did this whole shows come about. What was the genesis of it though we've done a few Pro not promos We've done a few interviews with barbara walters. We did a sixty minutes special her. I think that that really pushed us out into the limelight. we've done two interviews with anderson cooper on his talk show when he had a talk show. And then we've done an interview with juju chang. Interviews is sparks interest with networks and production companies. And you know it's amazing how you think your phone private but before you get back home from these interviews your phone and then there's there's opportunities there waiting and and things so we had several production companies reach out to us on the few networks reach out to us and we really never were just interested. You know we were not at the point in live where we wanted. Share our our share our life in you know the ins and out in as many people think. Have the cameras moving with us and live with us. You know which we come to realize. That's not the case that that's not how works at reality production films so or at least not naro. It doesn't Then we were blasted landed opportunity deal see in our production company and You know we came just agreements and in the beginning. When we sat down with the network we told them that we do like. We have a story share But in the beginning we amber. I've been married happily married and we have five kids and they're they're they're happy kids and when this shows and we both work in you know we were both. We're both working so when this when this reality shows over in his fund ride in this opportunities over. We're still going to be happy married. We're still going to have opted kids and we're still going to be working regular jobs. We're just gonna take this moment to share our story this. I think it's incredible. Obviously a very inspiring story that you guys have to tell and it's awesome that you're doing that but it has it ever been any kind of conflict with any of the kids. Hey today i'm not in the mood to record. Like how do you handle that. When one of the kids is like maybe having an off day something that school something with friends like. I'm not in the mood to film. How do you kinda work around. You have to work around the kids. I guess feeling towards the recording. So that's not just the kids. That's going to be amber night to you. Know we have an. I think for anybody and that's one thing our show. Our show is based around a family of four people but more than just being a little people were relatable Amber ni- share our parenting style and our family values. You know we still gather the table every night and we hold hands now whether our kids are at our table or somewhere else. We're all enhancing. Were say the blessing when we do keep our values You know their art todd We're very fortunate. We've had the same production company for a long time in the same crew and they work with our schedules. Kids have gotten older elizabeth's in nursing school. She works at a doctor's office. Ana is in school to be a teacher. And she's a preschool teacher and joni now he's taking a break for college right now but he's still working thomas well and they also have their own businesses that they run so the kids are very busy with college work school and film. Tv so You know naturally there are going to be times when we're retired and we really don't feel like coming home and get in front of a camera but one thing that i have always pushed the numbers always pushed and I was raised up. This way was hard. Workers report and hard work is only based on what you agree to if you agree to trying out for the cheerleading team. If you make cheerleading than you agree to be on that team go to practice and do your part if you don't wanna do next year that's fine but you're going to do this year so each year will win the top comes around and read or give it another opportunity to make another film another season of tv which valid the kids and we let them know that we have another time to make some more tv and that everybody needs to be on board. If you want to do this we need to be on board and if you agree to it then you agree to it now. Schedules don't always work out. Pan out so you know. We have to move things around make adjustments. Jonas comes home and he'd rather go play golf then. Go fill. tv doesn't matter. How much is going to pay. You know the kids all get paid to be on the show. Amber night cast members on the show in in term beta the kids as well so we cannot expect them to work for free. None of us were free. My dad always taught me that no matter what you do in life no matter how much you enjoy it. We all go to work to make money. We let go so you know it working schedule is. We consider a second job at the end of the day. It is a second job and it takes a lot of time but at the same time we've made a lot of good friends with crew are salman. We've got to know him very well. We've watched his kids grow up Some of the other people in our show we are we. We know the very well. And we trust them we we have boundaries but at the same time we trust in them and we trust our executive producer. That he's gonna he's gonna show a producer show in editor show. That's gonna show us in lives and we've always shared with the kids if if you say it or show it or produce it in front of the camera. There's a possibility they're gonna show it so if you don't wanna see say it or produce it out in front of the camera and you don't want to be seen the don't share it and that's that goes to saint with our social media. We tell the kids you know we tell the kids all the time of when you post something social media if you shared mom and dad or share with the breach than you better post it because once it's out there is gone. You cannot delete it. Yeah well said trinity i. We're all facing that kind of living in this world where it's almost all of us o on reality. Tv in a sense which social media the way it is. Once you put it out there. I it stays forever with screen shots and everything else Even if you delete it it still exists somewhere in the ether here so And bringing it back into use a father. Here trent What type of disciplinarian are you as a dad and is that different than the discipline style that you grew up with. I tend to think that. I'm following my mother and father's footsteps on the way ours raises a mixture of my mom and dad my in laws than blessed to have two wonderful They're good people average amer- adiga upbringing. So you know we can't just follow transparent skills. A mixture of mine and i will openly admit that i tend to be a tough tough on the kids. I'm tough on the kids. Because i know this world is tough little people. Unfortunately we have not had our civil rights movement there are many groups out there that have had their civil rights movements but we are still looked at at times not all the time and it has gotten better need any shows the people big world a little couple in their awesome other out there. That don't do a lot of justice but these shows have helped out a lot quite a bit but we are still looked at differently. And i push hard work in pushed up because i want the kids understand that you know you have to prove yourself re as people we have something to prove when we apply for a job or i'm i'm on the phone with someone. We all sound the same size on the phone in. Our resumes are all the same size whom we walked through an office door. All that goes out the window. You know they're now seeing a full switch all man walking in their office getting ready to sit down interview so my parenting comes is pretty tough. It is I believe in chances. And i believe in talking something out but we always have raised the kids to use resources. You know when they can't figure something out. I can't turn on the light. Go back there and figuring out whether you have to get a coat hanger yet to get a chance to get a stool figuring out in this is border just because we're not always gonna be there to help them out if the kids who spend the night with friends you know. They're they're much older now but when the kids were younger. There's been night with a friend or something you know they needed to learn how to do. Things not depend on others to to thanks for them. So we've definitely not have not been sheltered pierce or or helicopter pair star kids if anything. We may have been a little a little tougher. So i m tough at times and on the show there. There are times when i faced criticism. But i like to think that i know what i'm doing or not do it for a purpose when i'm no longer here to be that period or that dad to call on Hope i've done my job. I've shared enough information. You know we can open a book and read and learn all we want but life skills and good morals values and hard work. You don't get that out of a book you get that through good parents. Yeah yeah very well said try and then following up here on this but my youngest is my only girl as i mentioned. She's six years old now. My oldest is fifteen. He's just about to get into all this stages of peer pressure and and who introduced to to to that world and especially dating when it comes to that i'm starting to cringe a little bit here. You've been here You got that going on right now. So what kind of advice. Or how'd you handle when your kids got old enough to hit that dating scene so dating in our home You have to be sixteen years old. Dating is not necessarily driving in our home is a privilege. Just because you're sixteen years old allows you to drive. Doesn't mean and the johnson on richard. Raider dr joan. He was probably rated drive when he was fourteen years old. He's just had that hot That eye hand coordination. He's been very talented operating equipment. Doing things on elizabeth took a little longer alison them. I think they're going to be there will be are practicing within actually so dating a home yet to be sixteen years old. Whether you're a young man or young lady sixteen is the age. And i feel like best is the beginning of the next level of maturity. You've gone puberty and everything else and You you're expected more responsibility. So and his parents. We do our part to make sure that our kids are prepared to date in that they know the garage dating in our family is not sit down with a young man that just threat him make sure he treats the the young girl young lady right with respect now they do need to but you know we should all our daughters and make sure that they're respectful as well so Emma is getting ready to turn sixteen as she frequently reminds us that she'll be able to date very soon in highschool. Dating is sometimes tough for people. They have their friends but they don't always have that boyfriend or girlfriend. They may have a crush but a lot of times in high school. Unfortunately a lot of the people gross getting relate that the law tall basketball players football players. You don't really want to date a four foot tall early you know. They might get laughed at a good with that and vice versa. The young man may not. You know you might not have that pretty cheerleader. This interested in we'll short guy so Me growing up in high school. I had a good time in high school. If i would have met amber always said i would not have met him. Never made out of high school so i was. I was on the verge of making hostile a career so But yeah we we do. Have our rules in dating the and you know we have five children. We raise all of our kids in the same household but all records are different. You have to take different tactics on on rules and punishments. You know so. Alex you take some some his electrons away you punched in the heart on a back in the day he take that. Make up some of those stoller outfits and clothing the way you know man. You've you've gotten into her. Good some elizabeth. You just foss at her. You know you you break her heart so it is all different types of parenting that they've they've been raised the same way but in their kids. It's amazing how different. I see that when my kids You know the for them. They all come from the same place but they're all four completely different individuals so it's kind of exciting to see and find which which of their interests are rally behind that and get introduced the things that i never thought i'd be doing just because it's what they like so That part of it is pretty fun and your daughter is the youngest. She's the youngest share. We have a fifteen thirteen. Ten and six are six year olds are only girl. So yeah she's the he's going to be well protected and she's going to be prepared for any unmanned when dating aids comes. Well that's the plan. I hope so and i i i really do you know i. I want parents to be impressed when my voice show up to take their girls out on a date. I mean that's really my goal here is to have the parents feel like hey. I'm comfortable my girl going out on a date with this guy. I don't think we're there quite yet. But we're we're we're working on it so our kids are our kids no matter who we are whether it's me an amber or you and your family or kids are reflections on us is. There is a credit line to us on on where they come from another. They are the race When they're away from us you know we're always hoping that they been respect now. You may say aren't kids showing their true colors you know. They're not always disrespected. But there are times when kids are disrespectful and we have to bring them back in line and reminding them that. I don't speak to you this way. You're going to speak to us and the saito speaking of the show here trying. I know you just had the season premiere of the new season of the seven. Little johnston's what is what what's what can we expect. Here what's gonna be the The big highlight of this season. That you can give us away here. And how do you have any kind of limit on. How many more years you guys plan on doing the show. So i can't give any spoilers but we do have a good season again. Are this season that is currently on here is very organic and very real There are times when there's disagreements and some Young adults that are having a hard time understanding in taking our advice so You know. I i'm not allowed to give. Spoilers are giving hints away but the kids are really. Help me out here if you do. But the kids are growing up and some of them are moving out and you know at no point. Have we ever told any of the kids. You have to move out right now. Now jonah decided to take a break from college and started working full time. And i did give him the ultimatum that You know if. You're not going to be a fulltime student in our home. You need to have a full time job and when you have time job you get established you need start finding a place to live. That's that was the rules. Were hours growing up in and it worked for us. And it's going to work regina now you have to jona top staff otherwise you may coast of a little bit so you know we did date. Give him a top step but some of the other kids you know. They took bad advice as wellman. They're hard workers in their. They're busy working at still full-time students. And you know we we tell the three we call them. The bay kids little kids so alex and emma the little kids in joan analyst with the kids and we tell the kids now that you know when you guys come to us and y'all need help you gotta raise your hand. We're not going to constantly give you advice what to do or they do it all you know. We all learn about our age. We all learn from failure. Learn better from making mistakes and and the second time around so but we tell them all time if you need. Help doesn't matter if you're moving out trying to balance your checkbook regime will help you if you don't raise your hand and ask for help them we don't know really great soft try and You are obviously day. Here is right around the corner. I'm going to ask you. What is the perfect father's day. Look like for you. Perfect vollers day for me You know is not fancy people. I think We have been married twenty three years. Now we've been married twenty years now and i think we've celebrated our anniversary maybe twice or three times so we're not big gift buyers. The kids are now the as to where they can help celebrate mother's day and which is is really nice and they up celebrate holidays well so Father's day to me is just a happy and healthy home. I i grew up old school. My father grew up in. South georgia sharecropper to atlanta when he was nineteen the business college and you know. He raged up with a variable needs. And i think. I'm not saying i was raised up with very little needs. You know family.

We need the money. come on. jerry's got we need new gear. Jerry's got new microphone. Look at it microphone. Looks exactly like the other one i had. The internals are different. He claims it's the greatest microphone in the history of mankind. I just want it. It's it's the most popular broadcasts microphone in like with people. Doing and i probably of the second most popular for podcasting by far like for podcasting is like through the roof. Everybody gets an sm seven. Be that's what chris has mine is more of a higher end production quality type. Microphone that they use for broadcast radio where everybody sits in front of their little box. You know that's fine and these are more for usually pretty musicians recording studios. Yep this is this. isn't they use it. They use this one and the other one that i had a four bass drums a lot because it has like a base roloff where it'll make it sound better but it's more for spoken word than it is music. I see vicks with us vic. Hey buy some bitcoin. We were just talking about a theory and the other day. I should have put a lot more money into a theory and last year. Yeah it was cheap. I don't know what i was doing. I did buy some more bitcoin. It's dropped a lot after old elon. Musk yeah doj went down no. Bitcoin went down because benign. Just that tesla's not no longer going to accept bitcoin. As currency i wonder why because of the environmental impact. Listen did you see that. So the whole pipeline situation where it got shut down and hacked company paid the people that hacked them. They paid them in inbuilt point. Well yeah because if your criminal. That's the best way to isn't that transact money isn't that wild. That's where we're at in this day and age were paying people with fake crypto currency. I mean i say it's fake but like it was joke. It's just made up man. We got a lot of activity. Not here we got jim. Marin here we got vic. I have coin base. But you can't get they they limit you on what you can buy in on there. I mean there's a lot of things you can buy. But i didn't see him read anything about columbus said. Don't forget download cone base by bitcoin. Oh i didn't have that one for some reason. Yeah do have coin base. I bought some carr dino. The other day cardozo. I don't know about another one. That vick was talking about not polkadot. Another one though that's on coined this smell. It was really good. it's not as high. It's like a really. It was like change to buy like multiple. Yeah the one. That's cordani was like sixty cents. Yeah but the percentage that they're rising is just incredible like they're gaining like right now. One of them was at forty eight percent or something like gain in that day. Really like you're gaining over the almost fifty percent of what it costs for me to buy yesterday. Incredible excerpts have some pi. That one hurt me. Originally i bought that like got destroyed. But now it's quite a bit back. Anyway that's enough. The crypto currencies. We have some announcements to make. We scored are snarf madness. We won t twenty-one bracket a labor of love. It was a lot of closet. Another reason why. This is starting so late and i got here at eight. Yeah i got here at seven. Thirty and i was four deep when chris got here and that took me thirty minutes so and we had a lot more than just four to do. Nolan said bitcoin the other day but the nickel almost chipped tooth. I tell you what the volatility of corn in the last month. I'm starting to call a bit corn. It's through the roof and ninety. more brash. Like didn't really three days four days. This week has been like crash down to eleven dollars or something. It's like five thirty or something. I don't know what it was down to interesting for new crop for heaven. They came down some not as much. I wonder if it's because of that. Frost wanna speak about the okay. We'll talk now. My beans are fine. I got a whole hundred and sixty acres of corn. That is flat to the ground. Dead brown shriveled looks terrible. Do you think that's a bad thing. I think it'll be fun. I think it will not worried about it. Can growing point is underground jerry. That's what they all say. You told me that last night and you also said what. Can you do what you didn't troll nature. You can't in other nature's fickle bee's bitch so twenty twenty one twenty twenty one snarf madness. This was our top video game bracket of got all the scores right here me and jerry's most excited bracket i was the most excited about it. I don't know if others were but trump said are those heinz beans. I ate heinz beans for dinner last night. No kidding well i mean. I have three more cans at home. I kind of enjoy them. I think they're pretty good. Get out of here with the british. No it's your british beans and walk your british ass over the fabric in atlantic. I think they're pretty good and swim. The english channel. Go hang out inside of me. Big ben i tell you what i tell you what i think i like. Dick van dyke earned. It is it is it. Dick van dyke. That did the chimney sweep in. Yeah yeah that was his project slip. Cockney they call it right well as a cockney a strap. I'm sweep your chimney on. Am oil i I am and i'm gonna eat these beans for dinner. The best british beans made by americans because british can't make their own bland tomato spaghetti. Oh i don't know. I added a little hot sauce to them. And i thought it was good. There you go. Americanize them beats. I did yeah. I should've just dumped sugar. What i should have done. Or maybe molasses based a nicer up unless mustard and molasses. Maybe some grape jelly. People do do that and they have. You had them like with ground beef ground beef in your baked beans. Yeah so many grasses up. she's watching. I don't know what that means british thing that we don't know more british stuff or you know. Now he would. Oh she's watching as in like she's watching us do our impression. Oh all raw. I just thought. I need to bring him in. But van camp's make pork and beans. I've talked you said you were bringing them. I have them at home. I said bring them to her. Yes now. I told her to buy them. I think you said you were providing her with some and we were going to do a taste test. He's coming on the podcast. Okay i have them at home and we can do that because they're the same telling you it's cheaper like way cheaper than what those heinz beans are. Well it's because of the in english power who even knows how much money that's worth. I think they wait. It's like ten dollars. I don't know what's one pound that one pound of currency but i thought they went with the euro or did they didn't right like they were fighting against the think they did the euro because the uk was fighting against that. Like saying we're not going to do. What the rest of the european while they brexit right where they left the your think they didn't have the euro before that. I'm not sure. I don't know i know they've got it's a mystery. They don't have marks. those are gone now. They're germany use euros. But we're not talking about germany talking about it. That's where the markets from that german or is that french. I think it's french. I don't know let's stop time on your fun to talk about bitcoin. So much simpler quid. Ian hicks it is. They do have a quid as well. But that's like a bill a certain size bill. I thought it was like pizza. Change don't know. They don't have very many bills and they're made out of plastic. Is you know that they've got like a five pound. The pound is the big number so you they've got like a five ten twenty pound note but everything below. That is a quid. Like you can have a one. pound coin. The below that is quids. Arcades here seventy one p to one dollar seventy pounds to a dollar holy cow. We could basically live there for free. I you don't think that's true. We get by the entire. I'll know it's like a written but it's like three hundred thousand dollars or three hundred thousand pounds for a pancake. That's what i'm saying. Spent seventy one to one dollar canadian dollars. It's like one to one basically. Yeah pretty much. I think it's like eighty cents to a dollar for like a canadian dollar right pants. I don't know what's going on. Fish and chips twenty quint. It's not a bill to coin to at two quid to make a pound in coins with us. I have no no i got. Oh and pence six pence none the richer. Yeah you know pointers. Let's seventy one pounds to a dollar we could. You could sell your house and by buckingham. Don't think that's how bad the exchange rate is. It is pretty incredible that it is seventy one pounds to a dollar. That's but i'm wondering if oh my gosh. Appea- equals pence. So seventy one pence pence is a penny pound is a quid. of course it is. Then why is it a pound. Or why is it a quid. Like why isn't it one of those things because it's no different than saying what's a dollar a buck. It's the same thing like it's a slang term for a dollar. Those aren't slang terms. That's real like you gotta quit. And you've got a pound or two different things. A buck is because they used to trade buckskins. What she just said. A pound is a quid words. Another word for a pound is quid. Yeah nolan said. I'm pretty sure a pound is worth more than a dollar which would be seventy one pence dow. Listen this is england. we're talking about. It could be like one hundred and twenty. Three cents dollar pence has pound is the question. And then you'll know if it's more than a dollar man man. This is intriguing. Let's announce the winners of snarf man. Okay and the winners of snark madness. Get a fifty dollars or fifty dollars. A twenty five dollars thought. It was fifty dollars asher gift card to amazon. Which is how many pound or quid gift card. Well if you do. Fifty times seventy one. You'll find out the pence. But i don't know the poundage. Are you reading seventy pence okay. So hands enter. So you'll get a thirty five hundred pence gift card. Wow none the richer and you will be none the richer but you will give fifty dollars worth of whatever you want on. Amateur will only be able to purchase from amazon. uk and they do not shipped united states correct. Sorry so you can send things to katie's whenever katie goes back. Yeah she could bring it to you. Do they also get sweatshirt or t shirt. I thought that was the thing. No well yeah. Because i know who my winter no. My winter is doesn't need one so okay but you're definitely getting a fifty dollar gift card to amazon so my bracket stumped a lot of people because nobody scored very high for the most part for pretty terrible as well. Yeah my lowest was twenty seven. I'm not gonna tell you who that is my lowest. Because it wasn't keith. No my lowest was twenty nine and that was alex. Okay alex ian buddy. You're on here. You're listening you were second to last row. If we're telling in last on my knee at a twenty-seven who are in my man you did great you tied for the highest my first round the first round score the highest i had was twenty one ian. Got it erica. Got it roge got it. That's it those. Three people scored a twenty one in my first round. That was the highest score. I thought man to the moon with these people to the moon. I tell you. That's what i thought. When i looked at the bracket then we got into other rounds if you got a twenty one in the first round in a total of twenty seven score real because we scored the first round is one point. Second round is two points than four than six than a champion. Got a if you picked up the scoring one. Four six eight ten so twenty twenty one winner on my bracket erica fry. You called it from the beginning That america was gonna win as soon as you saw the wasting pom-pom i don't know that needs bad. You call a while ago. You were like you saw just like glimpsed over her bracket just like glanced at it was like oh i see who she picked. But you're like she wanted. I guarantee as she wanted she'd want it and not only did she win it. She blew it out of the water. She got a ninety two. That was the highest scoring of all brackets. Yes my second of any of my s bracket was craig blaze eighty five. So that's pretty close. That's good my third drops. All the way down fifty nine and that's nolan so there was a disparity from one two to three big time. That is a big time. None of my brackets scored anywhere close to that. No years were. You were a bit of a big mma an enigma wrapped in dog shit. Yes nobody plays the games. I do or even thought that i played the games that i do or would pick them and you know what really screwed them up to be honest. What's that spyro. Well it was viral. Ruined everyone but i love that game i do and a lot of you guys thought i was gonna pick doom or between both of us we didn't pick do. Did you pick doom. Yes i did. I did pick him the first round. Yeah that's what. I mean not in the second. I didn't pick it in the first round. I picked uncharted. Yeah there's only one person that picked uncharted. Yeah and i believe that is my winner. Who scored fifty eight points. So fifty eight points was the highest scoring bracket on my list and erica a double win and that was a alex alex alex was the lowest. He was lowest score on my racket. Any one year he running my bracket his second win of snarf. Madinat it is. He won the first year of snarf madness three years ago right. That'd be three years. Erica's never one she has. She's always been like second. She's been second or third all the time but Yeah alex bracket you'll get a fifty dollars gift card and number two. Was your wife heather. She got fifty. My wife is not heather. Alex's wife i'll have she got fifty four so nolan you came in at a solid forty. Six guitar hero. Third place now. That was forced plate. You got third in line. So yeah i had a my third place was fifty nolan's actually across the board was not very good for me. Except that he picked the winner of mine so he got he got only fifteen in round one twelve and round to eight and round three but then he got one in four or five and six because he picked star wars all the way up. Yeah that makes a big difference does when you get the higher points absolutely. Yeah but i had a. I had one two three four. Had seven people that rounds four five and the championship were zero. Go i had a bunch to i mean. There's so many that were zero. And that's what really killed them. The only reason alex one is because he picked the champion he would have been in like fifth place. Had he not picked the champion because of his previous rounds but since he picked halo to win it he won my record. Yes oh congrats to all our participants next year. You'll have to wait for the twenty twenty two if you have ideas for the twenty twenty two bracket let us know. Obviously we're not going to video games because that was not very so we'll happy to do something else. i believe. Erica is making us more digital version. It's gonna make it easier in his blown up and the comments he says spiro. Fm gulf tiger woods cereal. I dunno cereal but he is blowing up and he said guitar hero. Jesus jerry i agree. Bracken was terrible. I love guitar hero. It was what we like to play. Your brackets was an embarrassment so you want to know. I want to make the best games. I want you to like the best game that you don't like the say you want me to like what everybody else likes. You don't want me to play what i like. You want me to just follow suit with what you do because you follow everybody. I want you to okay. Now you're supposed to pick the best games. You should follow suit with what i do know because i have better taste in video on the no you don't you i don't like your games are a bit of an embassy. Don't follow it's great. it's fine it's a good game but it's not my favorite and we're not picking the greatest games of all time you can go on a rancor list and find that stuff or picking what we like to play. I mean i don't care about what you play austin. It's for me said that multiple times. We don't care what you want to play this here. What we want to play. But i have a multifaceted approach to my selections. I consider what. I like to play. The most i consider. What's the most fun i consider story. I consider your contribution to entertainment. I consider cultural act. Because what does that matter to you. Because i am judging what the best game is. That's what i but that's not what we were doing. We were judging what our favorite games are to play. I mean yes no actually i. I don't care what it rolled. Best video game. Yes john belfast. Now we had the big conversation about this. It was the same with the superheroes and it was to us. I'm with that. Yeah but still the best. Not what is what. I played the most. You know what. I mean what you play. The boss should be the best just because enjoy it the most. Oh that's how it works and you did us take that way all the time and you know you didn't. You didn't only pick games that you played more hours of. I did well. That's dumb and you didn't. Because which one's didn't i. There was later on when you tiger woods lose and some other said all i mean i played that game way more but you know it came but the one that i picked. I still played more than the ones that lost. Kurt nadu smash banger. Oh i'm not sure what that would be trump's bangers and mash it's a sausage sausage rate. Yeah like a little one. Yeah it's like our those called those little weenies that you get in a crock pot. Like during football season cocktail weenie. Weiner kind of little smokey. That's what a bangers. I am thinking of it as that way. I don't think that's the case. I think it's just like a sausage. It's like a regular. Oh like link. Sausage gets bigger than that. So it's big it's like brought. Yeah that's size but breakfast sausage. Oh that's big for breakfast there. But i tell you what. A british breakfast is huge. I don't know why america's so big compared to like the people are bigger you know like because we eat a lot food. Portion sizes are bigger. But if you've seen their breakfast huge so much food. They've got a ton of beans and tomatoes and meet all over tons of me. Well i'm telling you what eggs. I don't think we are bigger. Are you looking at up. Britain is the sixth fattest nation. I don't know where the us is. I'm trying to find that out number one. For what cover what. I have to register this website. Oh well we're you're not gonna do that. I'm not gonna do it. So kurtz kurt headset early in instead. Kirk did you smash banger in kurth immediately said. I'm not sure what that means. Slutty The opposite is malta This isn't right. Iceland can't be the most overweight no way. This is totally wrong. There so fit over an iceland. I mean they all wear swan hats and saying melodic tunes. They do vic i agree. I can't get over the beans for breakfast thing like i. I ate their beans last night for dinner. But i don't know if. I could have them for breakfast on like toast. They have beans on toast a lot. Maybe i should try that. I think will try tomorrow. Yeah have some beans on toast man. You got another can of heinz beans pantry humour. i got two more. I'm gonna break. I'm going to throw them until still let you know how it goes. I think that's a good thing to do so this week. Christopher there wasn't much in the way of news but there was a trailer that dropped that. I'm pretty excited for But it didn't it didn't strike me as what it should be. I don't know about you. did you see it. The venom to trade trailer. Something about carnage. Let there be larder. The venom to trailer yes. That is what we're talking about. I saw it. I loved it. I liked the trailer look. Great i don't know i guess he's still trying to work into this whole venom thing right. I mean now. He is solid veteran. I think he's figuring it out he has but it seemed like so. The movies are more Closer to the comics the venom comics where they're like two distinct personalities and injured playing with each other. Okay so that is common to the comics. It's just not a portrayal if you haven't read the comics that you're probably familiar with and i haven't ever really read and i haven't read on either. I knew that was the case. But i just felt as if he had. It seemed like he had very little control of what was happening in his brain. But now that you say it that way. So nolan mentioned heat. Anisa message just watch the sequel trailer. I thought the first movie was okay. Yes the tone was inconsistent. And i thought eddie brock came off as whiny. We mentioned that at the time that he was a very whiny annoying character. In that i mean. I like him and he had a weird vocal affectation weird thing all of it so i liked the movie. I don't know if you've ever ended up seeing that we talked about it. I liked the movie. I did take over all at the second. Half at the end it devolves into like a stupid cgi. So i didn't think it was amazing but it was fine. It is like the highest rated r. rated comic book movie or Box office still is and beat deadpool. Eight hundred or nine hundred million dollars at the box office unbelievable huge popular character. I didn't know it was that popular though one of the most popular comic book characters for sure really but anyway he said anyway. That's mostly what he said too. I do think that everything looks. I liked that. They're still doing the humour aspect. I hope they do that. Better at just. What's the dude's name. I'm tom hardy. Tom hardy i i think in the first one they had a weird and that's where he's talking about the tone because like at times it was a comedy at times it was not didn't seem to make a lot of sense i mean so i'm all in i think it's it looks funner and more fun i should say more fun. Yeah i love woody. Harrelson be great in that role. I like carnage a lot i have. I read a lot of those comics. A lot of i have a ton of the carnage comics with for spiderman. Yeah i also have carnage comics and venom comics. So my question going. It'll be interesting is do you ever think this is going to bleed over into spiderman. It's got to write. They address that. I saw an article about it. I thought i shared it to our wall. I was gonna write it down for news. I don't remember it now. The director talked about that. I believe that yes. I don't know if it's going to bleed over. But i believe it has been said that. Yes they are aware of spiderman his existence. Okay but it's on the other side of the country. yes. I don't know that they're going to bring spiderman in. I don't think they're gonna cross these two together. But i really hold having them exist in the same universe and acknowledged that i think is jessica enough. Yeah i think that's good but then a huge character with spiderman and they did it in spiderman three right spider man three which was fine toe for grace yes again. That was fine. I thought it was neat. We saw. But i think this tom hardy character would be neat to see with tom. Holland like that. That the newest spiderman. I would tell you why it's going to be difficult. I just don't know how you blend those two movies together. Here's why can't work in. My opinion venom is prefaced on you hearing the internet of his mind. Yeah how do you have that type of a character in spiderman movie where nothing in spiderman at no point. Are you hearing any inner dialogue. Well yeah but it's two different characters when you're following spiderman. You're going to be in a spider man movie with a normal narration narrative and then all of a sudden you're going to see vitamin and you're going to be able to hear his thoughts but you're not going to be able to hear any other characters thoughts will you don't hear anybody else's thoughts envenom either besides the whole story is is centered around character. But when it's not it's odd it would be odd. Had not seen any of the other two movies but at this point there's gonna be two movies out before you ever got involved with spiderman of what's going on. I think it would work if he. He can be talking venom yet. I don't think it works. If you hear that voice the voice. you don't think so. no. I think it could. I mean if he was venom like completely changed over to venom. And you hear that voice. That would be fine. But i could see. Let's get point. You know what i mean. But then when he's not get us all the time. Interacting with spider man probably would be. Yeah you know unless they have an altercation on the street when he wasn't but he can switch over pretty quick. Anyway i mean. I doubt i doubt it happens. But i know but i'd love to see spider man fighting venom and carnage and all of those characters. I think it would be really if they had them. I could see them doing something where there is a brief scene. The bump into each other the symbiotic spiderman and then you have spiderman storyline attached to them or something along those lines. That would be cool. But i don't have any problem with them keeping the universes separate at this. They're both sony right. Yeah i mean. I know marvel's doing guts on. Sony has the rights over the whole spiderman. Universe i believe there jared leto one to the jared leto one. Yeah oh the orpheus. Yes morpheus. That's gonna come out soon and did you know the new spiderman movie alfred. Molina's in it as doc the same. Yeah who played them in spiderman to yes. They've brought back a bunch of people from the original spiderman movies with a the main spider man who was at tobey maguire. Tobey maguire man. He seems like a real jerk. You know i. I've heard some reports where he's just been real mean to people when they've asked him about spiderman he can be mean. What's wrong with that. I don't know you shouldn't be mean to people people who they'll get over it. I don't think they have media people. Don't get over it. Listen who cares about the media. Don't i don't at all. I don't about them. I don't in the slightest. I'm just saying most of the time they don't get over anything. They create the stories about you. And that's what i read and find out that he's a jerk.

I'm in for it so check out the pictures because i think you'd be enforced to if you like that thing but if you're listening to our podcast i would hope you like some of things we talked about. But that's really all i got. There wasn't much for news this week. There's a lot of the there were so many articles about the venom trailer. Because they said that yes you know they know about man but he's not going to deal with them and then. This easter egg was dropped in this easter egg. That's all i saw and it was annoying. Yeah so i didn't get much news. Do you have any no. I do not really know news for me. So you're you haven't done anything to promote are wildly successful podcasts.

We're all we're gonna listen to the last show which is not for men as you get into all of them. You really do whatever. Thanks for listening. It's only like the first fifteen minutes of the episode so anyway yes starbuck. Homework is a segment we do. We started at like over a year ago and we abandon it. Originally we were gonna do it. Only patriotic for patriotic. We've decided to bring it back and bring it to the wider audience and our first one that we ever did was dark man dark man. Yeah a sam. Ray movie from the early nineties. No eighty sam. Ramey movie starring limb. It might have been nineteen ninety well early on late. Eighties early nineties. It was after batman. I think so too. Yeah it had been a nightmare. Because sam ramey was coming off of like the evil dead franchise. Yeah and this gave him a big studio movie in. This was supposed to be like their batman for whatever studio. That was while it's not. It's not one thousand nine hundred ninety. It's not batman. It is not bad. But i love it as a cult classic a really fun movie. Very sam ramey. You can tell if you're a fan of his. It's his style and it's one of those movies that's like a cult classic but it's it's not good. No it's not good but it's not bad either but it has its charm. It has higher bear. Yeah there are times when you're like that's fun like there's a lot of fun parts in you enjoy the way the story goes but boy it can be a rough sit with some of the stuff that goes on in the The facial prosthetics and things. It's just it's not batman. Yeah like you said it just. It was rough times but it was fine. The second one we did was the shadow with alec baldwin from the also early mid nineties. But jerry never watched it. I didn't watch it. So i've never done that homework. I actually got zero you on my report card. My dad was pissed anyway. So we decide to bring it back and this week. We decided to do the movie running. Man that haiti's movie. Running man starring arnold schwarzenegger why you ask because i love it. It's one of my favorite movies to be honest. I think we should start watching. A bunch of arnold schwarzenegger movies because they're all around this timeframe and i saw one today. I can't for the life of me. Remember the name of it that i'd never heard of. I've never heard of and never seen it. He standing there holding a gun. It looks like the commando cover but it's called something else but it seems like he's done so many movies at the exact same time that are all basically the same and i wanna see him. I was like dead. Something i think or i don't know i don't know either. So running man was nineteen eighty-seven. I don't know if you guys ended up watching it or doing your homework nolan. Did it was i. Don't know how successful it was at the time but is definitely cult classic a bit of a tongue in cheek kind of movies. So here's the deal. The i'm going to go over the movie to you. I didn't know what it was about. I knew it was like an action. Movie with arnold schwarzenegger in it. And i thought i thought it had to do with like military things kind of it does but it's him as a cop off right off the bat and then he's like kind of framed. They say he did really bad thing. Killing a bunch of people. They end up sending him to jail. He breaks out of jail but then they catch him and they put them on a tv show. How great is this scene with the jailbreak. Oh oh my gosh. Also it's so good the guy's head explodes but the guys has exploded. But what i thought was the one of the funniest things is when the tv show host was watching the t. Richard dawson actual host of family feud time so he was watching. Tv of a news. Report saying that Ben richards escaped and they show him running and he's just like almost jogging place like barely going anywhere and he's like. Wow look at the speed on them. he's like we need to get him on the show. Look at how fast he is. We need that man. And i was laughing so hard again was like talking about his speed. I think was looking at his physical body and being like i think he said he mentioned his biceps and some other things but he said look at that man move something like that and he was just watching. Our sniggers not known for his running running ability. Now he's not a good runner. But i just thought it was really funny but then from that point on it just gets better and better. There's a lot of cheese involved with there is but listen movie. This movie isn't going to be like your review of dark man. It's an awesome also. Not like this movie i did. I love. it's cheesy. Yes but anyway so. The point is arnold schwarzenegger framed in prison and he Breaks out meets this. He goes to his brother's house. He finds this woman living. There tries to for some reason kind of kidnap her. I don't really understand. Thought he has her passed. So why does he need her. Well because i think they use your your face involved with. He took her pass. He scanned his her pass for him to go to hanalani. Didn't have one and they. He started causing a commotion until they just go on so he didn't need her at all. I have no idea why. Or and the other thing okay. He's an innocent man right and he meets this woman but he's kind of a dick tour always super mean why he's right off the bat. He super mean doer. Like you're supposed to like this character. No you don't because he's mean to hurry ties her up. You really don't ever raise not a very likable character now. He ripped the whole weight bench out of the floor and then they try to escape to honolulu because he knows he wanted obviously and she turns him in and then he gets kinda saved from going back to jail from richard dawson the game show host because he wants him on the running man which is like the greatest reality television show the time gladiator. They take ex prisoners and put them in this. Like gladiatorial combat. Yeah arena. It's like a four hundred square block arena. That they can just free run around. And there's a audience participating in the slaughter fest and picking the janning on people picking the people they want the gladiators they want to go against them. Who's going to kill them. I this and they have some great ones they. It's a good premise. But i can't believe this movie. That's why i brought it up. Because i can't believe it hasn't been remade. Yeah we've talked about. Google gladiators before and real life. Gladiators happening again at some point. And mind you this is. This is all The movie is placed in twenty nineteen twenty seventeen now twenty nine hundred descriptions. It was twenty seventeen. i remember. Oh well then the amazon descriptions wrong in the beginning they say in the seventeen okay either way in the most eighties you've ever seen so yeah. They do the gladiator thing and know. He's gotta try to escape. He ends up finding this group of people that have been hiding under oath in the underground resistance. Yeah and that. Was mick fleetwood. The drummer from fleetwood. Mac no kidding that the guy with gray hair that was. I saw him in the credits. I knew i knew who that was like. When he popped up. I was like man. I know that guy. And then when i was reading the credits that said mick fleetwood fleetwood mac in in this the running man i just love how first of all the gladiators they got zero. Yes subzero buzzsaw dynamite. Who has fire. Gary dynamo the fire guys. Jim brown the running back yeah fireball and then fussy ventura is captain freedom yes. Captain hampton fritos like popping pills for steroids and they give them this really weird armor stuff at the end to try to wear but dynamo. Is this opera singer very fat opera singer rapist of big time trying to raise girl like now like right hallway in his underwear in his that. He wasn't in his underwear when they fell to the ground but then when he was getting shocked he was all of sudden in the central already know he was when they fell to the ground he was tidies was he must've taken off because he was point get rape. He was really weird there. The there were things in this movie. Shocked me on like how a graphic times with a rated r. movie. Yeah like the blood and like the chainsaw thing and then nolan said it in his quote but in his Note to us and like their one liners are just really hard into the point. Where he's like he had to split. Yeah i also love that. Arnold schwarzenegger is just having a great time. But he's smiling lot. Yeah he's smoking stogies. He's always yar he. He's doing a lot of things in this movie and sat running while nolan. Did i thought it was great. So i watched them running man last week in my thoughts are if aliens ever visited the earth and requested knowledge about nineteen eighties action movies. All they would need to watch is the running man cheesy one liners character tropes Explosions everywhere lots of synthesized drums and guitar. Riffs sparkly explosions. Cheesy one liners but the laboratory rat to celebrity wrestlers became politicians. Whose the second i mean. I know jesse. Ventura arnold schwarzenegger wrestler. No maybe he's thinking of sorts in egger. I would assume so because he was the only one that became another governor. Anyway so it ends it get. What's interesting about it is as he starts. Dispatching these gladiators. The crowd is reality. Show start rooting for them. But they were super upset when he was getting rid of the the other people fighters at i what do they call them stalkers. Yes dockers. so he they were getting really pissed that they the killing the stalkers. But then the old grandma that yeah. Who's going to have the next skill. Yeah and she voted for him and he's like he said do. I'm richard dawson says tour. Now that's that's the the running man you know. What stalker are you picking. She said i can pick whoever. I won't and i picked ben richards to kill the next stocker and then the rest of the crowd started doing the same and the the back alley street gangs that were voting or like betting on the streets started doing the same rightfully so they were making some case and then they which invade the studio itself they do back there. Come on now. It's you don't even say things like that all come on. This doesn't make sense because it's just it's such an entertaining movie to watch. I mean to a point. I was like how did they do this. Or how does this happen. Thought that deeply about anything any point. It's such no what i thought was like. This is such an s action flick to the point where they didn't give a shit whether or not any of it was based in reality. They're like listen. We're basing this in the future. Anything can happen in the future. And you're just gonna have to believe that so us being in the the running man arena and then getting into the underground of the underground of the arena and then getting back into the studio. Just understand that. That's what happened okay. Because they're bad. There's no really. They're back in regular clo-. Arnold schwarzenegger is just hip fire with a machine-gun and just blast and everybody any. What was the whole deal with. So he's he's murdering people right and having a great time doing yes so cuts a man in half with a chainsaw and these laughing blew up. Yeah he blew up the fireball guy. the sub zero zero chokes them out with barbed wire and he bleeds out from his neck but for some reason with dynamo laying on his side in his car and he's like hope somebody helped me and then he's standing above him with a pipe like it looks like he's going to jab him in the head to kill him and for some reason he stabs at next to him and says i'm not some murderer or something. I would never kill a highway list. Human being yes well. Those other people weren't helpless but an attacking him. I guess but. I mean come on man consistency. Why why would you not kill that guy but then everybody else. Because here's the deal you murdered. They make him not a great guy. Yeah they make him laughing while he's cutting people and chainsaws and then a weight. You have to like this character. Yeah that's what they did. Wait wait wait wait wait. He has some compassion for the fat opera singer in the bedrooms people battery suit in that little go cart that he just ran flip over by running into a pile of garbage. Yeah yes rolled it down the garbage. The battery operated sue. Blew me away but the use of technology in this movie like their advanced how you know in quotations advanced technology in this movie blows me away. I love the chick though. I don't remember her name but she mexican or spanish. I don't know she's got an accent. Yeah i love when. I like when she runs into dynamo in the hallway and she kicks him in the junk. She's like says something like because you got no deck and you've got a battery shoved up your ass. She said if you got a battery up your ass. But then that's when he catches her yeah and gets his tidy white. He's out right and then he became a anyway long story. Sure stuff like all the computers they do. Oh it's a heck. It's a hexa hexagonal key. And when they saw the one guy saw just a satellite. And he's like oh there. I don't even remember what he says. Satellite one satellite dish pointing to the center of the arena. And all of it is i. I don't even remember what he says. But it's just so ridiculous we got to get the satellite uplink. Yeah that's pointing to the satellite uplink in the senate. Where do you think she stored the data card with an unedited video. Nobody will they don't say she doesn't say now. She doesn't say and the fact that they put her in the death arena for having sex with four men in a year is not one of the things they say. Yeah they do say that and but they found her in that room stealing the yeah but the justification for arresting her was that like that she basically. She's a ho. Yeah that's why she was there. It was weird that she even got put in the arena. Anyway i i love it. I thought it was great. I honestly i've seen the movie a lot but not for a long time. I thought i'm like i recommended this movie. I loved this movie. I thought watching it back. I was going to be disappointed. And i wasn't really not at all that's good like i thought it was really fun. I thought arnold schwarzenegger was great like his acting. Surprisingly good i believe so too. I mean like better than other things like the exact same year. That predator did yeah. I think he does a better job acting wise in this. No i think he does way better in predator even so i thought he he seemed very natural and like not like some. The did terminator come out first. Terminator gosh i don't know it was four that it was in eighty s movie right. Oh yeah terminator. Two came out in nineteen ninety two but the four so quite a ways before he was already does. He say i'll be back in the first terminator or is it only terminator two. No he must say it in the first one because the way he said i'll be exactly the same in this movie because he says it and they like it's not close in shot of his face and he says he's getting ready to go down the tube and he's looking at richard dawson. It's from the terminator. And he says i'll be back. Police stationed assault in the terminator. Okay one thousand nine hundred four. Yeah it made sense. It had to of happened before this movie. Because i was like if this movie actually originated the back saying i it's gonna buy is going to explode in in the president because i would never have guessed that i always thought it was a terminator thing. That's why i wanted to make sure. It's from terminator. Nolan said it was so eighties when the movie was over ida's sweatband on a box of stogies. Next to me. I was wearing flash hans leggings dealer thing the extended dancer scenes. What were they. Eighties van it was the beginning of the show and they an unbearable desire to do the dance from thriller. I was doing flashdance. Like i'm a may. I was literally in my living room. So even if you've missed this talk homework you still have the opportunity to watch this movie. It's great you now. go and watch arnold schwarzenegger. I was very pleased. Surprise that how. I i mean i wouldn't want to call it acting because it seems like he's making a ton of money and he's having fun. Yeah he was just doing himself. Austin is legit real solid. He's chewing up some scenery every time he's in the he's in the scene. He's he's the guy who is acting was good when he was talking on the phone and the lady was trying to do is make up and just his little like like get off of me. Didn't say that. But he shook his head and she immediately ran away us. That's pretty good. He he did he act and other things. I don't know he was real natural like a very good actor. Yeah and the woman. She was really good. I thought she was good. Was the guy that was also one of the other running men. That black dude. Was he famous for something you know. I looked them up earlier and number of millions familiar. But he's pretty old. He was old the all of the bad guys the stalkers man. I don't like them. I didn't like buzzsaw alcohol. So i was ridiculous. That guy i don't under the fireball guy of those. So goofy brown yeah. He was fine but iran. Why are they always like straining so hard it's always straining in his face straining and he's got this look on his face like. Are you having a heart attack if you want to be a predator. Whatever stocker glad gladiator. I would think the to lease things that you would want is a dirt bike a chainsaw. Yes a dirt bike. Terra bynum car. You don't hit people with a car you can if you can get him on the road but you can literally just stand on a curb and he couldn't get you. The dynamo guy was because he was not like buff. No he just had. Electricity should not have been but the dirt bike. I didn't get it all either because to step to the side and kick it over. I was saying to myself when i was watching. This movie is why do they keep standing in the middle of the road and having to jump out of the way of the stir bike. You can get out of the way not well before. They're not very maneuverable. No especially when you're going balls to the wall down the road and holding a chainsaw no you cannot turn that bike very fast. So just stand off to the side and you're fine and then kick him over and cut his head off with chainsaws. That are just wildly flailing around as he falls over. I don't know that was a terrible character that guy. I did not like really good that he had to split. That's what they ask like. What happened a buzzsaw. Oh he had to split. The joke is he literally like cut him in between his legs from bottom to top. Yeah it was bad way to go. Not not fun nolan. Says he thinks that dude was an alien. The black side was an alien I don't remember that. I will look it up. We got fact checkers. So anyway That was our that was our homework. We're going to bring new homework out. What do you want to do. We gotta go back to the source back to our man my man okay billy zane phantom phantom we were supposed to watch the fan of. You've been talking about it. I our next homework. I don't remember anything about it. We personally know. Billy's hey i am a personal friend. Visually jerry and billy zane have beef. We do have a bit of. They made up though in the end. You hi fi with a in jump. Hi high five. I feel like while yelling. I feel like that sealed. The deal where we are for life after vixen john. Claude van damme we will do. We bloodsport time cop. I any of those all of them. We're gonna watch every eighty s action movie ever next one. We're doing is the phantom with billy zane because he is a close personal friend of the show right me and jerry. Both of us are not fans to we made it clear that we weren't we could reach out and get him on the shitting where you can get him on the show. I'm going to reach out to. I'm going to find his twitter. I'm going to stalk the crap. Billy zane and tell them it's our star. Talk homework for this week until he gets on the show for two weeks. Two weeks two weeks to talk and figure out where people can watch it okay. Either way i'm going to get a hold of billy zane somehow and i'm gonna tell him he needs to be on the show. I know we had a little bit of beef but come on man that's promote yourself because guess what you're going to comic cons and you're not getting very many people in your lines. You're not doing very many movies right now. You need all the help you can get in the fame category and if you want to be famous you come on snarf talk. Hey i got good news for jerry. I'm prime video free amazon prime for free. You can watch it for free amazon prime or paramount less if you have paramount plus You can watch the phantom. You got two weeks and it will be on our next show after that. Okay the phantom where it's at you only suggesti- were smarttalk. Let us know. I know Dick tracy was on our list for a while. Oh that's one of my favorite movies. Ever so i know. A dark city was unbe list. I don't remember that one. St fighter was on the list. Oh yeah i'd watch that all over again so Bloodsport was one of my favorite movies growing out because it was a good one between john. Cod vandamme is that the one where japanese guy that breaks his leg. Is that the one where he's watching his brother fight. Somebody somebody killed comes down in his head is on the mat just goes to like don like a quarter inch and then the blood just goes sh the i why i watched that at vic's house when i was a kid we were sitting there eating. I remember everything about. We were sitting eating. Peanut butter and ritz crackers. You threw up. And because all me visited was watch rated r. like john claude. Van damme arnold schwarzenegger movies. Yeah all night long on vhs. At his house. Eat peanut butter and ritz crackers and then go play crash bandicoot. That's what grady and bryce are doing. Watch these movies on. Repeat and that was blood. Sport was one of them time. Cop mostly john claude van de movies. They were so good they were at the time and when he would do the splits he'd put a foot on another upset at kickboxer. Maybe that was kick boxer. Kickboxer could have been in. I know blood sports where the guy kills his brother i. I'm almost positive. His brother dies in bloodsport. And then he's like. I need to go fight this man. Do you know that john. Claude van damme was the inspiration for johnny cage and mortal combat. I did not know. Did we talked about it. That was made a couple of weeks ago. John claude van damme was also the original predator. But he didn't like the suit and he was kind of grumpy about it so they he left the production and they got a different predator to be in a different suit. And that's the one. We seem pretty interesting. We should get to our top ten. Yes we have a top ten top. Ten bill murray movies so let me see if i have them in the right order. Are you a bill. Murray fan i am a bill. Murray fan my biggest problem with this list That i thought of for some reason is that a lot of bill. Murray movies are him as a side character. You argue with me and said now. He's got a ton of movies. You're not wrong but there are a lot of his movies where he was a main character that i haven't seen like lost in translation which a lot of people claim as as best movie. It's sofia coppola as best movie johansson. She's in it. We'll talk about it later. There's hyde park on hudson that a lot of people didn't necessarily like but he was the main character in that i've never seen it I don't know. I haven't seen a ton of bill. Murray movies that once. I started getting into the list so i may not be as in depth as you okay. That's not on the list. But i've got the cool thing about bill. Murray is he has no agent. Yeah he has no representation. There is a phone number. You call the phone number. And you leave a voicemail with the project that you're interested in him being in and he returns. The call is interested unbelievable. What a power. Move me and jerry eight at his restaurant and we saw his brother who saw his brother sitting there. That wasn't good check. That was the exact. Same day that i had the beef with. Billy zane. it was what a day there was. Maybe a bit of a issue in the parking lot. Snafu deal don't need to talk anyway so we'll get started. My number ten bill. Murray movie is one that i don't remember that much to be honest but like you said if you're wanting to pick things that he's got a bigger role in. Yeah there's i mean it was hard you know there's a bunch to choose from. I had about fourteen on my list. And i picked so my number ten is a movie. I don't really remember very much. But i remember liking it. It's called broken flowers. It's from two thousand and five. You brought that up. i don't know that one. He plays like a basically a kind of a playboy. Like don juan type character and he gets a ladder like an anonymous letter. That says he has a child. He's like going on a road trip across the country tracking down like all his formal former love interests. Like one of them has a kid that he might be his kid now. He's old now. He's older okay. Well it's dim two thousand five so he's like an older man and he's like reflecting on his life. This is what bill murray does so brilliantly. he's probably one of the funniest human beings in the world. he's one of the. He makes amazing comedies. He makes ridiculous comedies but as of late he does really well. That like balance point between comedy and drama. He's a great dramatic actor. Great comedic actor and he all of his movies especially in the last twenty years have been kind of quirky offbeat and this is one of those types of movies and i really liked it. That's my number ten. That's your number might aaron stones in it to really. I'm not actually a huge sharon stone fair really dome mines going to be one that you are definitely not going to have your on your list. Most people i bet you most people have never seen it. It's a wes anderson film now. I'm going to be wes anderson heavy. I think i. I absolutely love wes anderson because i love those movies. He's always aside character though. This is the problem not always not always but he's usually just a 'nother. It's very hard in a wes anderson film to pick out the main character. Because they're big ensemble cast. Yes so but in this one. This is like a claymation movie that you may have seen or may not. Oh yeah. I know what. It looks fantastic. Mr fox fantastic mr fox. I liked that movie. Of course eight movie loved this movie. I loved it so much when i first started watching it. I thought this is absolutely ridiculous. But then i watched the movie and then i've watched it again and again i've seen it people times and i think it gets better every time. George clooney is the voice of the fox of mr fox but his main sidekick is a badger and that is bill. Murray and i think the way he plays this. Badger is like absolute classic. Bill murray watching bill murray as like the caddyshack guy as how he wasn't stripes. How he was like the outspoken loud mouth. Kinda guy following around this fox. That's how he was as a badger. But the mr fox doesn't really necessarily listen to them all the time but they're like hand in hand they're buddies right and it's super fun. I enjoy it. It's a stop motion animation movie. It's weird. I saw jitters. You've i loved you did yeah. I never saw him in theaters but brought cash. No this movie came out in two thousand nine. Okay and then. I brought one of my nephews to see that. It's two thousand nine. I brought one of my nephews. Maybe joey probably yeah. It's got a seven point nine rating on. Imdb that's pretty high. Like i said i loved it. I think bill murray's amazing as the badger and he's a great. He's a set up man for everything that the fox does fox saying. I'm bill murray movies. Well chubb says space jam. Isn't he's got a pretty good part in it. I wouldn't say main character but he's pretty good. Part is a main agent number nine. I have scrooge d- scrooge. I mean yeah. I just think it's classic bill murray is fine. I'm not a big fan of. It's fun fine christmas movie. If especially if. You're not into christmas movies like you don't need to feel good. Yeah you know well no. I need to feel good but it's like an anti christmas movie but it still is a christmas movie and it does have. I mean it's the scrooge a christmas carol mcduck yeah mcduck but bill murray is very bill. Murray in it it's great. I love it. It's one of my favorite christmas movies. And i gave it to him for that. I get it. I mean it is a very like well. Renowned volta guard. Yeah yeah of bill. Murray's everybody always talks about scrooge and you see it on all the time at christmas and you'll see it on the on every just like i said it's not your standard christmas move now. It's more biting wit and humor and it's decent but it was never one that i would go to during christmas or oh i do. I watch it every christmas. I don't watch that much. it's just fine i want. I want the sappy. If you're a guy like me who needs christmas movies. This is one of the ones. I can. And i love sappy christmas movie. I don't i. Don't i hate chris movies. I love just like sitting dwelling in my deep dark emotion. I like home alone. And scrooge. D- i love home alone. I love home. We watch all of all the time. Well the first two anywhere. Yeah yes exactly. The same movie beat for beat. One hundred percent or seen the only difference is the pigeon lady which donald trump great moment. I think the second one might be better in the first one. I agree because i think you have a better connection between the pigeon lady and kevin than you do the old man that salts the but we're talking about bill murray movies number nine jerry. My number nine. I put in. Maybe people be mad at me because a lot of people like this movie but i put as kingpin kingpin so by absolutely loved the movie kingpin. Bill murray's character. I gotta look him up. I don't even remember his name in the movie What was his name in the movie. His wild comb over is what i love And some of his one liners in movie are incredible. Let me look him up bill. Murray is ernie mccracken da. How do i forget the I think this is my depiction of bill. Murray if you like if somebody just said like describe bill merck murray. I'm gonna describe. Ernie mccracken because i feel like that's how he is as a human being is like this outlandish over the top type person. That has a weird hairdo because if you watch him in real life he golfs all the time and he has his own line of clothing for golf and it's just weird looking clothes. He wears all of it when he golfs. He is a weird interest rate. Follow on facebook. Here's a great facebook. Their stories about them like stopping at random college parties and just walking in and just like drinking with college kids. And then leaving. That's that guy. Ernie mccracken and bill murray are the same person. It just happened to be a bowling movie. And of course obviously woody harrelson. It's on randy quaid as the amish guy. The movie as a whole is phenomenal. I love it. But i like bill. Murray's part i think the best out of that movie. Yeah and that's my number nine. My number eight is what about bob. That's my number eight. Visit your number two. I don't remember that one a lot. It's not one that can go back to a lot but it's very very funny. Richard dreyfuss is over the top. Had his therapist bilberries. Bob who's just like this obnoxious patient. That's what i was going to. So what i was going to say. Is that one of the funniest parts is that richard dreyfuss finally like just blows up screaming and yelling at him and physically throws him out of the house and slams the door shut and he's like yelling at his wife and he's like this guy is a complete like bike maniac or whatever he's calling he's calling him names and yelling at his wife and then he turns around any the door backup is look and he opens the door backup and bill murray standing there and he's like hey. Is this some kind of new therapy. He's just completely oblivious to the fact that this man like just ater despises ever about him. All of his family and friends around him. Everybody loves him. Yes you just can't handle it. I love it. My biggest memory and with this was ranting at the market because up until this movie like kids could bill murray like kids. Watched bill murray. Yes know you had stripes which was rated r. but we still watched it yep ghostbusters and all these movies. Were i feel like he was very present in my childhood. And so when what what. What about. Bob came out in ninety one. It was like oh. Let's go get the bill murray movie. That's right there and your parents would be like. Oh yeah bill murray. I feel like we watched that. I remember watching a gary ganster house and it was like it's like a har- or i remember as a kid little kid thinking like this is not appropriate. Only maybe even thirteen. It might have been. But i remember some stuff happening in that i remember that feeling or maybe his mom turned it off because for some reason anyway i never be but i did love that movie. I've i've watched it many many times. frank oz. Yoda himself directed that movie. You know. I thought. I knew that i think i knew that. I think we've talked about before Yeah that's my number eight as well on not to jump through the list too quickly but it happened to be the exact same number. I do remember being at the masan market as well. But this i think is what got me. That movie death becomes her. I remember renting both of them at them. As i'm mark. I don't know that one cover had a woman with a hole in her stomach and the guy was holding a candlestick through her body. I know that cover. Yeah she was dead. Of course she had a whole body chris. She's not the living through that. So what's your number seven. My number seven is an amazing movie. Which i can't believe you seen in. That's lost in translation no. I haven't. I absolutely loved this movie when i was in college. I was watching this all the time it came. I resident three. I read about it and after reading about it. It's like man. I really want to see this movie. Might have seen. It's just a really understated art house movie. That is actually good. Like most of those quirky art house movies aren't and this one actually is and it doesn't do a lot but what it does. It just feels really good. Bill murray is like a basically a washed up movie star. Yeah that's what i these in tokyo. And he's like doing commercials and stuff over there because you know he's still famous there but not in the united states anymore and he becomes friends with scarlett johansson character. And it's just a really really good movie. It's definitely definitely worth checking out. He's not particularly funny. And that's not he's not funny. It's it's more of a movie about the relationship. He builds with a much younger woman. Scarlett johansson who's like nineteen. Yeah and that's the point of the dynamic right because tokyo where he still feel somewhat relevant but he's realizing he his time is like over. And if i remember correctly like it's one of those things where like they have feelings for each other but they can't really figure out if it's romantic or like a mentor monty. And then there's like younger. I think it's giovanni preview. There's like other men more age. It was a good movie. Check it out for sure okay. Don't expect like a lot of story. It's a very tonal movie. So it's it's not like a narrative lee strong movie. Yeah it just sets a tone really well and then you kind of just. It's just a cool movie. You know what. I mean Kinda got a vibe to it. That's interesting enough. That holds your attention. I gotta watch it that. That description grabs my attention. And what i've read about. It has grabbed my attention. And it's something. I think i definitely need to see and it might change my list in the future. That one apology original screenplay the kademi awards. She was nominated for best picture. Best director and best actor bill. Murray was nominated for best actor. Yeah and that was the first woman. Sofia coppola was. The first woman nominated as best director for a major motion picture at the oscars. Her dad is francis. Ford coppola of the godfather. Right the guy so my number seven her cousin nicholas cage correct which is last name also coppola. He's changed and i saw recently in a think. It's on either netflix or amazon. But there was a movie that came out. I think last year that came and went. It's called jujitsu. And that's what nick eight. I saw that as well. I got a terrible rate. I know but i wanna watch it. Do you really yes. I watched the trailer for it. And i was like i watched the trailer and it was kind of intrigued and then i looked it up. I m d in a scott such terrible rating. That's why passed it over. I should've never looked up the rating. I should have just watched it at the time. All right your number seven my number seven. Oh boy we gotta start is probably like wildly underrated but again we're talking about bill murray movies and he is the smallest of side characters in this movie. And that's caddyshack. He's a very small character in the grand scheme of this movie. Okay he's the at the course. You only see him. Swinging golf club hitting like flower. Heads off you know and kids like this. The whole his impact in that movie is huge and that was his breakout yes. His impact is huge. He's blowing up the whole gopher chasing him around comedic impact in that movie. Yeah no i understand. He was very funny and it is hilarious. And that's why he's number seven on my list because that role in and of itself is bigger than you remember. I don't think it's that big go to his little shack. There's yeah there's that he gets the fishes the candy bar out of the pool. Yeah takes a bite. Out of a baby ruth. I remember that but those are small scenes story our comedic. They are powerfully comedic. I would agree with that anyway. I think he's don. He did an incredible job. It's quoted all the time maybe the most quotable movie of all time and yeah. I don't know what more i need to say about it. I think you're going to talk about it later. So very good number. Six six for me is stripes. You're gonna talk about it more later. Yeah all right. I'll just quickly say it's another standard of my childhood. Yep another one. That's not appropriate for children really language in it. Yeah watched it all the time. Yup i did too. I did too. I was very young. We'll skip it if you're going to talk about it later. That's fine. we'll move through the list quicker my next movie. You're going to hate me for this a you already know. It is just by me saying you're gonna hate me for putting it at number six. I dunno grand hug. Stay o you. i like groundhog's day it's fine. It's just groundhog day. Is it crime. Hogged i put an s even writing it down Okay groundhog day. it's fine. It's funny. And i like it. It's number six. It didn't crack the top five. It is not but not in any competent movie watchers list competent. Anything movie is solid genius. I've never said i was competent. And do just fake. My way through life. We talked about this. Anyway it's great. It's it is one of the biggest bill. Murray movies that you could ever watch one of the best movies ever made. It's not it's not the best movies ever made. It's a very good movie. And i love bill. Murray in it and you know we've quoted it a lot so repetitive clever. All right we'll pass them number. Five four me is getting into the wes anderson world. Oh yeah and it is a movie that for a long time was one of my favorite movies. Maybe if not my favorite movie for a long time not anymore but for a long time was rushmore. Your number five is not only. Do i absolutely love this movie. And bill murray in this movie because a very funny he's but also powerfully impactful in certain ways and the way he approaches the comedy in the way he approaches like that character is so different than what you expect. There's the comedy but there's also like deep level depression. Yeah underneath so sad. And it's amazing and this is where. I'm battling this fifteen year old kid over the same woman. What's mrs pass. I can't remember It's i think it's miscast cross cross. Yeah yeah. I also became a huge fan of jason schwartzman and continue to be. I think he's on believably underrated comedic actor. I wish he was in more stuff. All of he's super popular off. I think he just recently. He just came out in a new movie You can get it on streaming and it's him and the guy from parks and rec. That plays ben. That's another that's adam. Adam scott scott and i've heard it's excellent and he's in a movie with him. Yes but jason schwartzman. I absolutely love. He also is one of the couples. I believe i think he's in. He's in that ring. He's related to somebody famous anyway. He's also the drummer for phantom planet. The band yeah you know so much. I'm a big fan of his. But i'm a huge fan of rushmore. This is it might be. What kinda got me into us anderson. It was the one that i went back. And i love bottle rocket and royal tenenbaums. I think was before this Even know rushmore came before royal tannenbaums. Well anyway i love it. He's a it's like a private school high school kid. Basically who's way more mature than his age and he's battling bill murray like rich lonely old man. Yup rich lonely both in love with his teacher. They're in love with the same woman. And it's ridiculous. Funny heartfelt wes anderson movies are real weird and offbeat. This is less so he hasn't really gotten into the weird offbeat stuff yet. I mean it's he starting to get into that with rushmore and it is you can tell. It's a wes anderson movie. It's just not to the depth of what the movie's to come for wes. Anderson are but in the way of bill. Murray it's one of my favorite performances metoo so that was yours as well. Yeah that was my number five as well that brings me to my number four Which is also one of my favorite movies of all time. And it's also a wes anderson movie and it's the life aquatic. Is that yours to. How did we do this. Yeah the life was steve z. Sue this movie. I just i can never stop going back to. I can't get enough of it. There are so many things happening movie as they get into a little yellow submarine because he's like the he's explorer. Yeah but it. It's like a. It's a weird play off of What's the aquatic guy. The guy that literally went down in the ocean. Tim cameron now but well before i don't know but he's in like a royal society of explorers club basically and he's a documentary filmmaker right. Yeah and he's kind of clinging onto his last vestiges of relevancy and trying to make one more final big he needs exploration and they just put together such an amazing crew and then the whole everything with between him and owen wilson. Who's a son right is phenomenal. it's just such an offbeat a light hearted but also again weirdly kind of hauntingly depressing movie. Jacques cousteau okay. So it's a play off of jacques cousteau because jacques cousteau used to wear a red beanie okay and have like that like a collared shirt on all the time but that was like exactly what he was trying to portray with that character but obviously you just named them different Anyway continue no. I mean i just think i think they. He really nails and bill murray. Does it better than anyone. He's able to take a wes anderson movie and a script which could come off the absurdist. It is but make it hauntingly depressing just below the surface and i think they nail it and yeah they do because he his wife wasn't his wife cheating on him with a married man. I don't remember what's his wife. Angelica houston yes. She was pregnant financer. Her aren't answer but she was pregnant from different. I i don't remember that part. But now i mean look it up but either way like in the whole reason for that was because he was so obsessed with getting a little piece of fame again with this one mission like a half to do this one mission was overtaking his entire life. He was ignoring his wife completely. the jaguar shark and everything else. Yes jaguar shark. I have a poster that is the submarine but like it's a cross section and has like all the rooms labeled anyway. I absolutely love smoothies. One of my favorite movies of all time check it out full journalist in a co-pilot who could possibly be z. Whose son to remember that the the cast the cast of all of these movies that he is in it. And that wes anderson puts together are just willem dafoe unbelievable. Yeah is so good in that movie. How good he is absolutely. Oh that's i was gonna say him right off the bat but milbury. Owen wilson cate blanchett. Houston willem dafoe jeff. Goldblum like what the what. The heck are these. Not the greatest movies ever made you know. And then this was pre rushmore. Two thousand four. Yeah this was. No rushmore was made in nine hundred ninety eight. Oh yeah okay. Rushmore was ninety eight royal tenenbaums with two thousand one. This is two thousand four but yes amazing. That was my number four as well. You are number three mine. Number three is also going to be my number three groundhog day now. Not my number. Three groundhog day as my number three. I got to above it. But i don't think you're giving enough credit. It's a brilliant movie. It works on several levels. Okay works as a simple romantic comedy. Yes but also it works in a lot deeper contexts because there is actually a lot of up behind the surface when you start getting into like how many lifetimes and there's whole threads that i noted to like millions of years that he's been reliving the same way for thousands of years or whatever but there is a little more under the service than there would have been in any other popcorn flick romantic comedy. There's a little more depth to it than there needed to be. And i think that's what makes him. I mean i would agree with that. Plus it's great biting wit which you don't see a lot of and only probably bill murray can pull off very i see it every day because that's how i live my life biting witty humor. You know it's just a. It's a great overhaul movie ned. Ned riers net the head. He says like fifty and things like like really quick. I love it his brothers in it. Brian doyle murray is he. He's the mayor of always the mayor. Yeah oh i always forget. That guy says brother brother every time you think. You told me that for the first time that he was his brother. They're both on the same day together he was. I didn't know his brothers on saturday. Allah while he was a writer. Anyway i think he was on air a little bit. Not as much as bill murray. But i just listened this story. It was chevy chase on howard stern story of how they got into a fistfight. Yes i heard it as well. It's great and you hit his terrible things about chevy chase about. Everybody hates them absolutely. He did not come off that way in that interview. He came off as a pretty down to earth. Dude yeah one hundred. Not if you're about the stories about him everybody there's tons of stories about him but he talked about it as a bill. Murray talking crap about him like the back. And then i like how earn kept needling though about like because like basically chevy chase emerged as the biggest star of that era from sarah live. But he he does say like howard. Stern says you were the biggest one. That came out of saturday night live. He said you're right. Like i got a lot of movies and got really big after saturday night live. He's like but jim John belushi was better than me. No he's a. He's a dan ackroyd but then he he said john belushi first and then he said i'm working like right along him he's like but then he's like but honestly dan was the guy that was like bearing me better. He was writing in all of it too right. And that's i think the point But anyway i liked how howard stern was like. Needling him like. They're all better than you know. And there was one moment when chevy chase's is just like yes. I know you could tell you. I thought it was great rate. Watch but then Who was it that got in between. John belushi john blue because he's the one who set it all up. Yes and was a joke. Yeah he told bill. Murray some things as a joke. To get him all riled up. And then bill murray gatt pissed and said some shit to chevy chase and then so he heard about it right before the show started to air and then he went back to his dressing room and walked into his dressing room and said like you ever say that should again like shit. Yeah kick the shit out of you. And then chevy chase. I don't know if you know this but was from like the east coast like connecticut. Extremely wealthy family. Oh he was born very wealthy. I didn't know went to harvard. He was part of the national lampoon with the harvard. Lampoon was actually a part of it. Yeah yeah that's how he got. They had a funnel from lampoon to live that was like the final and then it became second city later on. Okay with bill murray. I think yeah second city chicago guys. Both of them should job. Yeah all of them and everybody after that. yeah. I'm chicago better became the funnel to sarah life after that. Yeah but anyway. It was interesting now. We're at number number three number three. Yes my number. Three is another wes anderson movie. My last sanderson movie on the list and it is royal tannenbaums. Yes it is by. Far my favorite wes anderson movie. I guess do have another one. And i thought about putting on my list moon rice kingdom. I really love that movie you know what. I've never gotten all the way through it. I don't know. is that the boy scout one. yeah. I don't know how. I've tried to watch it twice and i fell asleep both times and i've never finished again the can. I've heard i have another friend of mine. That is loves anderson. And he says that's his favorite movie moon rise kingdom rivals royal tenenbaums. That's why just said. Like i said royal tenenbaums was my favorite and then i started thinking about like immediately like oh wait. I don't know if i can say that. I've heard very good thing about things. I'll of dogs. I know i don't even i'm no interest. I don't wanna watch anyway royal tannenbaums. I absolutely love this movie so much. A close friend. He's been on the show nate. I call him pagoda. And he calls me royal most of the time or like i have him in my phone as pagoda and he has been his phone as royal. Because i've always said like you're just my sidekick that is going to knife me at some point at some point in our life us living this life together i'm going to be acting as like royal tenenbaums and you're gonna just shank me and then we're still going to be friends and it'll all be okay but that's why i've always said that But bill murray's character in royal tenenbaums is one of his best. I love it a lot trying to remember what his name. The only reason. I didn't have it on. My list is because it's literally been so long since i've seen royal tenenbaums. What and why. Don't you watch it. Every saturday i just i go back to life aquatic and rush more well in delicate houston's in it as well it's a lot of similar cast. Yeah it really is. An old wilson's in the to isn't he. Oh absolutely yeah. And luke wilson and gwyneth paltrow and gene hackman and bill murray. And danny glover ben stiller's in it riley saint clair. That's erica says. Wes anderson or some of the best date night movies boy. I don't know if i agree with that. I don't know i am. Marley would hate wes anderson movie. I haven't dated in a long time but yeah no. Amy does not enjoy wes anderson movies. I've tried to get her to watch some and she just doesn't enjoy that you've got to be a movie person. She does like wes anderson. She doesn't get the humor. Amy's very realistic right. Like and they're absurd. Wes anderson movies are absurd. they are absurd. I am an absurd fellow. Enjoy that this And she's not. She is the exact opposite of that. So it does not land the same for amy as it does for me. So that's it doesn't work well for us. If your significant other i mean is a sinophile than yes. they're probably a great cause. Yeah i would agree wes. Anderson movies are for people that are really like they really like movies. alec baldwin's in it too Nolan also said there's almost as many horrible stories about chevy chase's told me mcclair there is toby. Maguire is not all right. We got we got to move on. We're running out of time mine number two time. We have to do what we're watching. I watched a whole new show. How am i gash. It's probably not. We're not gonna have time to talk about it. But i'll mention it anyway. Okay number two for me is who you gonna call. Oh that's your number two. Oh that makes sense ghostbusters. Yeah of course. This never gets old. Every time i watch it holds up. I completely agree. We're gonna talk about it again. Both of them. By the way. I just kinda i mean if i can lump them together that'd be great. That's what i was gonna. I obviously the first one is a superior movie yes. Bill murray is amazing. But i love the second one to even though it catches some how we're going to find. Yeah i like the second one la your number two my number two stripes. This is like bill murray. She traits do. Do you know that. When i was in middle school or no elementary school i was invoice cub scouts. And you'd saying that we wouldn't large from the school to the church where we had our meetings heart street church and our troop leader would make us chant that song it's a cadence cadence cadence which is not an appropriate children's movie. No not at all but the song is whatever but it was from that. That's i mean. They knew that they knew what they were doing. I watched that movie at their house. They were very conservative people. It's very surprising that this happened does surprise. I'll tell you after who it was but but amazing so stripes is bill. Murray's first movie coming out of saturday night live so he just was done with saturday night live. They give him a big movie. This is where he meets harold ramos for the first time and sparks a whole like friendship but it is so fun. I love milwaukee. John candies in the. It's like at the peak of vietnam era. Type movies like where they were making this type stuff and but this one is way different than any of the others. It's not a serious war film. It's obviously comedy this. The there was doing on nove. They did go to russia and infiltrate russia. What this this. Van volkswagen van. Yeah but it was a up armored van that you would never be able to tell the head of any armor on at all but they also had guns. That part is fine. whatever. I love the beginning. When they're doing the training and everything because he he goes to the army because he's like a really upset cabdriver and he wants to change his life so he decides to join the army and he just happens to be put in to a platoon with all of these other like schlub. -i losers losers. That are doing whatever but they lose their drill sergeant and they ended up finishing training on their own. And i remember at the like when they go to graduation Oh he like the. It's like a captain or officer type. Person says i understand. He's standing at a podium. He's like i understand. You finished training on your own and bill. Murray's in front of him and he like slaps a gun on his hand and he's like that's a fact jack. It just have always loved. I think it's so funny. And he says he'll say razzle zo and that's when they start spinning guns around it's awesome. I love everything about it is great. It's really fun. That's why my number two i agree. It's a great movie. My number one is caddyshack. Your number one is caddyshack. Yeah i mean. I guess part of it is like ranking the movies to even though. This is bill murray. Yeah so is it gets that thing like are you. ranking bill. Murray raking the movies that bill. Murray in caddyshack someone the grace. If we were doing that i would have ranked us different. I don't know i'm looking at bill. Murray movies i consider caddyshack to via bill murray movie and as a movie. It's the best one. It's amazing movie. So can yeah. I could see what you're saying and it totally makes sense anyway. It doesn't really matter. It doesn't i got it number one. Everybody loves caddyshack. It's the most quotable movie of all time is bill. Murray have as much screen time in his other movies now. Should i have done it that way. I don't care doesn't matter does. it doesn't change anything. He's great moments in it. Yeah guess when you're thinking about it. Sodas had night so does chevy chase. They all have great moments in it. But i'm gonna hung up on it. We all love caddyshack. It's everybody does literally one of the best comedies of all time. My favorite is just the gopher dancing at the end. That's the only reason why i watch. And then i love how they replaced bill. Murray dan aykroyd the great number. Your number one is ghostbusters. Yes my number one is about. It is it. Is life changing. They haven't done. I haven't seen a movie like this since this movie came out like the way it's impacted me no a you've seen it like no. There hasn't been a movie like this. Ghostbusters is john of movie. Yes it is. It's its own thing. I feel like stranger. Things is trying to tap into mean and it's a sci-fi movie at the same time. I know the reason i say that is because they're doing like aliens type stuff you don't see ghosts and a a crew of people trying to get rid of ghosts. Bust them if you will you know and the way all the way just took hold of the culture sigourney. Weaver was amazing. Yes and rick moranis. Rick moranis was amazed and aykroyd. Who wrote the movie based on his own life experiences. His dad was a paranormal investigator. He wrote the movie based on his own life experience. It's unbelievable getting earning him. Ernie hudson while ernie hudson's in the second one he's in the first one to z in the fafsa herald ramos carol ramos. And that's it ernie hudson bill. Murray dan aykroyd narrow getting those guys get like. You can't replace those four men with anybody. They did later but Else worlds. There's a new one coming out this summer with paul rudd. I'm excited and bill murray's in it bill murray's in it show and they show herald ramos's a picture. I think dan ackroyd. Isn't it like his granddaughter has a suit still. I think dan ackroyd does. I'm excited because paul rudd is. I love her fact. I want the movie. I don't know who else i if we could cast out the rest of the ghostbusters. Nowadays i don't know what you but the movie as a whole ghost happened. Heart is absolutely amazed. Haven't heartbeat ghostbuster. No because i'm a big fan of his. I'm not a huge fan of gemology. Yes i loved jumanji for him. I don't think ghostbusters would be good for a kevin hart character but bill murray style of fun like of comedy and his one liners and the things he says during something that would blow your mind like you're trying to zap. You know aliens out of a library or not aliens ghosts out of a library and at the end of it. He just has this like this mild mannered guy. One liner like octa burbank madman. Ladies man it's so normal investigator. God i love the and they don't make and they've never made another movie like this. You'll never see. I don't think we'll ever see another movie like this ever again. Like one into. I like to between one and two one is better for you. Talked about earlier was better to is still very good but yeah you won't ever see him again. And that's kind of why i put it as my number one because it was. It's a stand alone movie. That bill murray is done. That high moves to that. Yes it blows the lid off every timeless movie. That's why i feel like it's better than caddyshack dogs and cats living together. And then i mean how many times have you ever said or heard other guy. Say you never cross streams and then you know the cartoons are great. Yeah the toys were great. The i want the lego set. They have like a professional lego. Set of like the whole the fire station. You should buy us that yes we should. We should build it and put it in our studio. Yes or do should build it. Because he's lego. Lego erica though. I love legos as well. I just erica. You the set if you will build it for us ship it to us or drop it off and we will display it in our studio one hundred percent. That's it's expensive. It's a couple hundred bucks. I think we we'll we'll do it. Totally no big deal. That was my number. That's it that's still murray. That's that's the list of if you've got any other top tens you guys want us to do. Give us some suggestions for sure. We've done a bunch we've done. We've done a lot a lot of top. Ten's i was scrounging for name. Maybe like an actor. Next time i would like to do a gentleman. Well you know how we did like a top ten breakfast cereal or top ten diner. I think we did or fast food fast food. Yeah something like that. I would like to do something like that again. Because it sparks a lot of conversation. I agree and it sparks a lot of anger. Yes and i want people to be angry for picketing just ridiculous stuff all right. We love five minutes to do what we're watching. I have two things. I've been watching. I only two as well. I mean i watched survivor lobby. You don't care no let's talk about that. No we're not gonna alright. What else you got. I started watching again. Catching up on the mighty. Ducks game changers. I haven't started. So i was real excited for at the beginning. I like the story. It's it's fallen flat for me. It's not doing what i thought it was going to do. Is just kids show. it is but it. it was rising to a point. And i thought right all right. They're doing something good like they try to do. Something like cobra kai but they failed at every moment. No not every moment. Not every moment is failed and they are absolutely trying to do. The cobra kai and at first it was successful. They haven't used Gordon bombay the right way. I don't think like they got him involved but then all of a sudden he's almost like a back after that. Just kinda barks out advice every once in a while. It has an interest in this lady. But he's not like actively involved in the team yet. And that's what's really aggravating me. I want him to come back and be the coach of this team to beat the ducks and he's not doing it and i don't know why they haven't done it. It seems like a huge law. Like why are you having this random. Single mother coach the team. Then talk to gordon bombay. Who owns the entire ring that you're in like a rink. I should say that you're using but he acts like he wants nothing to do with hockey. You own a hockey rink you drive the zamboni around. You were the coach of the ducks. Why are you surprised that the ducks forgot about you when you are forgetting about yourself. You're forgetting about everything you've ever done in your like throwing it off to the side. Get down there and coach hockey again that you want to do and everybody else wants to do. And don't be mad about the ducks being a big time like youth hockey league team and not inviting you to this. Like whatever it was. It was like a like almost like prom for hockey. I guess i don't know but it was a big celebration. And they didn't invite him. Well no crap like no. They didn't invite you because you became a hermit and he sat in this little office and ignored everything else. And now that hockey's going on in the middle of your life ninety nine get invited to the books to coach hockey team. But when i get to the ducks f- that was just super frustrating. To me as you could tell like. They they screwed. You have a lot of feelings about this. They screwed it up man like everybody loves gordon. Bombay coach and the ducks you know like in making this team become good from nothing like a bunch of ragtag kids from nowhere. Become good hockey players. It's the exact same story. They're using a single mother to coach them but she has literally zero experience. You have the likable main character. Be a man anymore. You know that right. He still the main character though just behind all of it right and you need to bring the guy that built the ducks up to the forefront to build the ducks again if you do exact same story over again i would enjoy it better than what. You're trying to do right here. Which is keep him hidden in the background. It's dumb i'm sorry. Following this drama vic pizza delivered and the delivery driver backed over the utility box in front of his house. You still have internet. So that's good. Minnesota miracle-man yes. He was the minnesota. Miracle man erica. And they're just not utilizing him as that and it's frustrating and that's why i kind of gave up on it but i'm going to finish the season for sure. I think there was one or two episodes that i had left to watch. And i'll i'll watch. It is a kid show. I do believe your kids. And i need to get my kids to watch it. I think they would enjoy it all right. Well thanks for taking up all remaining time talking about a dumb show that nobody cares about. I do care when i watched. It could have been talking about the big show that i've been watching. Which is the number one show in net flicks jupiter's legacy i finished season one. I started the first episode and fell asleep and never watched again. I needed to give real. Yeah it just a random night. I'll save it because you're going to get back into it and you will binge it all and you will have watched next week so you enjoyed it thoroughly apparently If you're binging shell listen. I need you to watch it before. I talk about it too much. I don't like the way the characters look straight up completely irrelevant to what at okay let me break it down a little bit. Did i like it. yes. I enjoyed the show. Is it amazing. no it is. It's a solid show. It's not the boys no. I didn't expect well but that's kind of trying to go for. I know but i did not expect it got a little bit more of like a wii a vibe to it to a certain extent but not really the cool thing okay. The thing this show does that. I thought i would hate is. It's it's inconstant flashback. So it's constantly going from the past to the future to the past to the future. Yeah and we've talked about this. I hate that. I don't like that either a lot. All in this show. In fact i was always looking forward to the flashbacks because the story i wanted to know i didn't care about what was going. That's about the parents. The older yes people. Well it's all about them. I know but there's all about them. It's all about the parents. I'm both accounts. The nowadays is the parents and the children coping with life now but the flashbacks are about their life before they had powers and powers and the flashbacks are solid. Gold really good okay. Enjoy him a lot. The future stuff. The stuff that are the current age stuff is the stuff. I like the less but it totally makes sense in service to the story and the current and the past stuff does a really good job working together to tell a cohesive arc narrative world. That's good right there because it is very hard to do. The flashback stuff like what happened in the past and what's happening now or in the future. Whatever and get them to like meld correct. It does it melts correctly. Now that being said is it the best thing in the world now. It's getting really good reviews getting it a lot. It's a solid show really good. I don't know where they're gonna go from here. It feels like they told the story to a certain extent. There are some things. I didn't care for and yet the characters outfits are a little goofy but you get over it real quick. It's not necessarily the outfits but it's it's it was the same issue that i had with the witcher before i ever watched it is that is gray here and the way looked. I thought looked goofy. I don't like how that must be from there. It is okay. If you look at the comic book he looks identical to that. Okay but putting him in real life is just weird that actor. I absolutely loved What's his name. I don't know but he's great just in the in the flashbacks. I don't really care for him in the present day as much. But it's a lot. The present-day stops mostly about him. His wife and two children and their interplay there but all these young heroes that are kind of the next generation coming up. Isn't their kids their kids. But there's many others and they're struggling with the super villains. That now are the game has changed. The world is different and of course more dangerous and they're more killing now and before in the past it was kind of a pushing poll. Like we're gonna do this. We're going to stop you. We're gonna put you in jail. Nobody was really but now they're really out there killing. Yeah it's getting dangerous and here to the code. Is that on earth okay. I can remember so you will like it. Anybody that likes this. Podcast will enjoy it immensely. But don't expect it to be the boys don't expect it to be. Netflix is not the same as amazon. Had last or any of these shows that were saying like are out of this world. It's not watchmen. It's not like that. It's not like any of those things. It's a little lighter. Entertainment not light like it's still heavy in subject matter but it's not as well done as cinematic as those things that makes sense. It does so. I enjoyed it. We'll talk about it more when you watch it. Because i do think you'll enjoy it. And i do think you'll it rather because the story is very fast paced. I don't recall a single episode that i thought dragged in. You know that's my biggest complaint. Yes they press the story. Line forward solid every beat every episode is pushing especially the flashback. Narrative forward incrementally felt long longer than i expected. I don't know how many episodes it was but it. I don't know if i like that feeling though of feeling long. No because that means that. That's not what i meant. I meant like a lot of these shows. These days that are like six eight episodes. You felt like you didn't get much out and get shipped. You feel gypped the idea. I felt like. I kept thinking like this has to be the last episode. But there's so much more and it wasn't and then ended naturally all if felt right like the length okay the narrative storytelling or that own. That alone makes me want to watch it because there are so many shows that i have loved that ended up ending either abruptly or to where it's like. There's gotta be something else here that you're not telling you know aggravate. The whole story was told maybe it was only eight episodes. If felt longer than that. But i will say there was not a single episode that i watched that i felt like man. That was a waste of an episode or that was slow or they didn't move the narrative forward on. That didn't feel that way. One time i'll watch tonight and the only other thing i watched is a documentary called. They have this series on netflix. Called explained and there's various subjects. Okay the newest one come out is money explained and interesting. It's a so. Why didn't you know about the pence the pound. Well it's not that it is a legit opportunity for net flicks or whoever produces these things to push a real solid specific liberal agenda in the guise of documentary filmmaking. Okay it's almost. It's not all terrible. I mean like the first episodes about like pyramid schemes. And stuff like that. That doesn't have any liberal agenda right. No but i'd like to know about that. That one was actually pretty boring. The second one i watched was about credit cards. But it's got like this little air of anti-capitalism behind it everything. They talk about sure. The next one was about student loans. That one was ridiculous. You know it's basically like basically spending a half an hour of an episode setting up the final thing of like. This is why college should be free. This is why college should be. Free is very very one sided okay. So that was annoying. That was the only one that has really that the credit card one was fine. The retirement one i liked. It also had a very strong left side bias but isn't wrong. Yeah that we have a problem in this country where people a lot of people don't have any wears new era. What they're going to need to retire right. The whole idea of retirement. Which is a big problem isn't but it wasn't idea until the certain time in like the fifties there wasn't a thing that wasn't retirement wasn't even a word before. Then you just worked until you moved in with your children or died. Yeah and then it got sold. Basically anyway i'm not recommending it. You don't need to watch it. It's fine if you're interested in these topics that's fine. Just it's got a certain perspective and it's not telling all opinions. I don't care it doesn't bother me. I'm smart enough to make my own decision. And i think most people are too right. But it's fine. I just that was literally a couple of nights this week. We were having dinner or something. We just want to sit down. We just needed something to be on. Yeah but we didn't want to watch something. Yeah i get it and so that's what we were watching. Just turn it off and just have something playing. And i couldn't watch jupiter's legacy because marley to watch something too and she was watching the show anyway. That's all i've been watching done. Yeah that's that's it. We'll talk about the bad batch next week. Bad batch. next week you're gonna watch subaru's legacy and then you're snarf talk. Homework is the phantom.

You're getting into the warm and in the fall, you're getting out of the warm and you're getting into the Colt which here in Texas is really relative because we don't get that cold. But I'm so happy.

Now, if you have ever watched he'll see which I'm a fan of TLC chances. Are you have seen the roll offs family show? It's called little people big world. So she married the son Jeremy and spent some time on the show as well. In fact, I told you last week when I was telling you who was going to be the show today. How many people watch their wedding? It's crazy. It's because it was a part of the show today Audrain. I talk about their love story their passion for marriage and our shared love for it. You know, it the inaugurum. Audrey even shared with me something I didn't even know about the integral which isn't that hard. I'm not an expert. But I do love chatting about it Audrey, Jeremy run a blog called beating fifty percent. And it's about marriage. She has a clothing company called always more, which if you follow me on Instagram, you're bound to have seen me in the hoodie that she sent me this year because it's amazing.

Audrey welcome to the happy hour. Hey, thanks for having me. So fun. I'm excited to be here. I'm glad you're here in Austin, Texas. Yes, I love it. We're like sister cities with Portland so fun to be here. And explore a little Lynn Jehovah catchphrase or something like we're like keep Austin weird wall Portland stole that from Austin, what you were going to say, we still have, you know, I think we'll I don't know. This is where my Uber driver told me. He's like. Yeah. Portland stole that. But Bridgetown we have a river that runs through the city to and there's like a Jillian bridges so Bridgetown a lot of people call it paediatrics, Portland. Eight eight Ajax there's a lot of similarly I went to Portland this past fall. And we actually went hiking. I wish I can remember where you went because it was so beautiful the gorge Gournay. I if you said, I had no falls everywhere. There were waterfalls everywhere. So beautiful. Yeah. It was. It was great. In fact, there was like some kind of trail run going on. Yeah. So people were just like done coast maintain up this hill off, and we're just like wait again for any. We're just here. So welcome to Austin, Texas. Yeah, things. So for my listener who might not know who you are. Yeah. Introduce yourself in like, thirty seconds. Okay. Wow. Thirty seconds. Let me see if I can do that. I'm Andrea Rohloff. You probably know me. My husband grew up on a reality TV show called little people big world. That's how most people kind of came over and found out who I was my husband, and I since then have sort of worked in the online space. We have a sort of newlywed marriage ministry blog called beating fifty percent. And we created some products and stuff out of that. And then I have a clothing line called always more. It's based on my like life mission and mantra comes from the verse. And if Eason's three twenty always believing the more that's within you through Christ is sort of what I want to inspire in women, and so that's been super fun. It's a lot in the past year. We just launched a podcast. So it's been fun on this face and then writing books which cast called it's called behind the scenes BTS BT s so we go behind the scenes with other people, and then just share the behind the scenes of our life, and it's been fun. I love the podcast. It's it's it's so like natural for us and easy. And you've done reality TV. Yeah. Written a book, which will. Talk about it comes out in April. And now podcasting which one do you like best? I love writing. I really love writing. I just have to be in the space for it. And so I think podcasting just with a sixteen month old daughter has been just great because we can crank out a podcast episode. Forty minutes at eleven pm by the fire. So it's amazing. Yeah. It's just like, oh, this is so easy. We also have a really good team set up with our podcast, which a lot of the other stuff that we've launched are done. It was like just us scrambling to figure it out. So that's made a huge difference. But I do love writing. I just need to get into that deep work mode of dedicated. Yeah. On like focused on hindered time before. I think I like that as well. Writing is hard for me. And I couldn't come to my office and right for an hour. Yeah. I need to look like this is my data. Right. Yes. Yes. Same. Yeah. Yeah. When you were writing your book, did you go away. Did you do together? So we co author the buck my husband, and I which has had its own challenges because we needed to make sure we're telling the same story. And we, you know, you know, already when someone asks you like, what's your love story? You're how'd you meet your husband? You probably have both two different version for stories. You can't tell what. Yeah. Exactly. So we started writing the book actually when our daughter was three months old. And then we had three months to write it. Oh my gosh. So we wrote the book in three months, we actually like shut down social media shut down some of the other stuff. We were doing just a really focus on it. We didn't go away because we had a three month, but we had a lot of babysitters, and we actually went to the tavern that's up the street from us and wrote most of our book there, which is actually where Jeremy my husband took me on our first date robos. In our first yet. Same spot we but yeah, I loved the writing process it was super fun. We'd like read back and forth. What we wrote to each other at night. It was cool to have someone like so invest I think writing a book on your own can feel it seems like it could feel a little bit more isolating veggies. Yes. I'm sure you read chapters of your books to your husband, but you wouldn't know funny. Yeah. Aaron release a book six months before me. Oh, I didn't read the book till it came out wo. He did not read my book till it came out really really hurts of it. And I read parts of his but neither one of the set down front to cover and read. It intentionally not or life kind of happens. Like, we're just both busy and our Yang's. But I think it did become intentional. Like, I was just in the process of doing it with my editor, John people. It just worked out that way. So funny looking back. I'm like that seems really weird. Like, why didn't I read your book? Did I don't have time to read my own husband's words? But it just yet. I don't know. Yeah. It's crazy. It's yeah. Totally. You guys are doing it together. So you would react other. We had and and so we read back and forth. Then. Yeah, it was just super fun than the editing phase was different because we had a toddler that was crawling moving. And we were like she doesn't just lay. Yeah. Right. Exactly. Yeah. We're thankful to be done with the writing face for now. But there's more books coming down the line. So. Never got to start working on the next one right now. I know. Yeah. Okay. Can you tell our listeners? How old you are? So we can get some frame of reference here. Okay. I'm twenty seven k so twenty-seven mom to a sixteen month old now extend months. Yep. This is a funny. I feel like I've said with every age that it's the most fun, but it's been so fun. I love the personalities coming out, and she can move like she can kind of have a conversation not really with words. But I know what she wants. And I can give it to her instead of just the frustrated Stade's of like nine to eleven months where they just can't tell you. Yeah. She's so fun and Q and Jesse soon we'll tell you exactly what she wanted. Exactly, I my oldest is fifteen and so it seems forever way from you. But I'm going to turn into a really like old grandma right now and lay Audrey you're going to blink in Siamese. Fifteen. I everyone tells me that and I'm like it house like people would tell me that. I'm like that is so weird. You're such an old lady. I'm serious you blink. And she'll be fifteen and it's just it's fun. It's so fun. Okay. I'm going to be getting to know you along with my listeners. So very fun. Now, you mentioned everybody about reality TV, I'm gonna do. I didn't think about this before you were my one two three four just talk thing at the top of my head. If people have been on the show that had been reality TV. Oh, really, isn't that crazy? Yeah. That's a lot kinda hide. No, cool. So I'm so intrigued, especially when you told me that your husband Jeremy has been on the show sixteen years for sixteen years, which means if I'm doing my math, right? Yeah. You met him while he was on the show. Yes. I didn't watch. The show. So I didn't know knew nothing about it. Well, you didn't grow up watching TV not really like movies. How to TV but not reality. Definitely. Yeah. I was not allowed to watch any of. Okay. Okay. Even though his family's reality show is good clarification. Whereas like house rows of anything. But but like MTV was no it was. It was when I was growing up to seek to my friend's house. Yeah. Yeah. We met when we the show was happening. But it was actually they were kind of in a break when we met. So they weren't like full-blown filming for the show at the time, and you met in college high school. So we met in college. Jeremy my husband was going to community college because they were still filming for the show who's close to home didn't know where wanted to go to school or what he wanted to do yet. I was in a state school. I went to Oregon state and ran kalija cross try. No, I did wrong. Day ago beaver beavers. Okay. It's totally by ducks. I mean, come on, it's so confusing here. So are you all the green and gold? No, see, orange and black. I'm sorry. It's fine. It's fine. It's really verse. Everyone knows the ducks because the ducks won the national football thing couple years back and Prefontaine and all of that. But yeah. So I was a beaver. I ran cross country and track collegiately there. And so my husband, and I ran track. I ran the five K in the fifteen hundred. Okay, you cross country. Yeah. Cross country job. Yeah. So my husband, and I were set up by mutual friends on a blind date while we were both home from school on winter break. Okay. Got it. You can read more about it in the book. Oh, yeah. Super crazy story. Neither of us had ever been on a blind date before Jeremy was like no way because he got ask all the time just being in the public eye and his friends would always try to set him up girls, we both trusted our friends. Yeah. And so we decided it worked your friends were right? Yes. So and they're still are Francis day they were in our wedding. Oh, and they set y'all out that some sweet. Yeah. So I say did he does he tell you? Hey, by the way, my family is on a reality TV show. So I knew I was like my friends I knew and and my friend that sent me up like told me like, by the way. Yeah. And so like, I knew of it, and I knew about it, and I knew of their family farms. So they have a pumpkin patch aside from the show. That's kind of what drew the show to them. They're these little people right doors, and they bought this giant farm and Amy his mom was pregnant with twins one of them being my husband and the other one being his twin brother who's adorned. Okay, short. So that's interesting. I think they're like one of like ten in the world or something crazy like that. And they had two more kids. And then they bought this farm, and they have a pumpkin patch. So it's this huge, pumpkin. Yeah. Operation that they have going on. And I knew of that when I was younger because that was like the pumpkin patch with everyone in Oregon went to. Okay. Like, I almost knew of that more than I knew the show. But anyways, so yeah, I date. We didn't talk about show at all not one word you want to know. I'm not really us at the time. No, okay. I don't know. It just social media wasn't really a thing yet. Then you couldn't creeper stop people. Tell me what your this was. Oh, man. I wasn't nineteen. Okay. So whatever year that is. Okay. Okay. Got it. But yeah. So anyways, didn't didn't really ask about it. And I figured to like he's probably gets asked about this a lot, you know. So I just didn't want to be a person probably thankful that you didn't keep us. He would have been like. Creed. By that. He was like why didn't she want to talk about this? And then yeah, I really like we started hanging out and kind of our stories we were friends for two years like just front after that date. Okay. And he pursued me hot pursuit, and I was very stubborn and bradfo and resistant. So that's a huge part of our story. Then we started dating we started officially dating ten days before he decided to go to photography school in Santa Barbara he moved away and then we did three years long distance. And then we got married. Oh, so you never dated except for ten days. Ten days in the same city. Okay. And then his school didn't even get summer breaks. He went to school through the summer. It was a three year program. So we wrote letters hence the title of our book a love letter life, and we're both super like old souls at heart and Jeremy bought at old fashioned typewriter. And so he would write me letters on the typewriter and send them to me. So that was a huge part of our story writing letters. We just we liked the effort in the intent. Chin that went into letter writing. And we wanted our love story to be marked by that effort and intention, and so that's kind of what we hope to inspire with his book to just inspiring people to have a love letter life and to be more creative and intentional with their love stories set is so good. They letter writing this this loss art, I know. I mean, I getting and leaves me a note. Oh, he'll even you know like, yeah. Each other note. Sometimes. Yeah. Are you guys like words of affirmation people? Erin is. Okay. So you leave him notes. I try to be in a really good wife. But even like a note like just the other day, he left me a note on the counter, I had to leave super super early before the kids even got up ahead to drive to Belton to do something for work. And so I left everyone's asleep. And he had written a note the night before. So I would see it when I woke up I said tonight's date night on him in town after work like, you know, and he's like tonight state now, they can't wait that little note was so to me it can be the simplest thing. It doesn't need to be with elaborate totally one hundred percent agree. Sometimes I would even note on the coun- the bathroom counter. Just as proud of you, you're so sweet. That's good. I love this big. If I'm proud of me, did you know, I read somewhere that this is totally off subject with is that we roll here. Yeah. That that's one of the things that our kids here. The most must not proud of you. Really? Yeah. I say, it's my boys all the time. Yeah. It's my boys. Probably more than my daughter knocks. I'm not proud of her because I know it's a big deal for dude. Yeah. I'm proud of you. And I say some all sound like I'm so proud of you today. My son was like, what are you proud of me for? And then I was like, oh, let me tell you. You listed off all these things, and he had actually been in a lot of trouble that day. Like it wasn't like we were just having to save our life parenting. But I listen to all these things and he just smiled so big. It was like it meant so much. Yeah. Really good. Tell someone. We're proud of the jot that down and exactly hearing tting notebook. We're like just scratching the surface of that. Yeah. Just got introduced a love and logic. And all. Okay. I'm all about choices. Now, choices effort want to have peas or various you are talented. I give you all the power. Yes. And national consequences. I know my daughter going to school jacket and all the time. Oh my gosh. She's like at the bus stop. I'm so cold. I'm like, I know I know jacket on you get okay love letters you guys wrote letters yet. But you did visit each other. Right. So so I was like collegiate athlete so I trained and ran basically all year track is both seasons. Cross countries. Fall indoor track winter spring summer training. So is basically like I could literally I visited him. I think three times in three years. Yeah. Oh, yum, yum. You're like this is like nineteen fifty has been goes off to war type of relationship. Oh, okay. Discrepancy though, he so he did visit me. Okay. Got it. And he also had to fly home to film for the show. So he would whenever he flew home to film for the show. He would drive took her Vallis and come see me for a day or night, or whatever. And then drive back were you on the show? Oh, when you were dating so dating we were kind of protected a little bit from the show because we were Jerry was at school. So a lot of the show storyline wasn't surrounded around. Jeremy like they filmed him going off to school. They filmed him moving in. They filmed him one time when he was there has brother went to visit him stuff like that. But they weren't feeling filming him on the daily. We had just started dating right before he went to school. So they didn't really have time to introduce me. Yeah. Which I think like was the Lord kind of protecting us because none of our dating relationship was really on the show. And so that's where like a lot of this book comes into play. As like, we haven't really told no one really knows Austria. And so like we broke up when we were dating him like all these things. And and once you learn. That wasn't on TV that you'd have to like seriously the dot. Yeah. It's crazy. You can start out on your own terms now. Yes. And not. Yeah. But yeah, so we didn't really I wasn't really introduced the TV world until we got engaged. And then Jeremy proposed to me and had his buddy film it. And then they licensed that footage to the show. So that they could air it. Yeah. And then all of our weddings, planning was filmed. And it was just me because Jeremy was stolen Santa Barbara. So it's basically like me filming going shopping K tasting and all this stuff because he was away. Did you like that parts of it were really fun? And we're a big blessing because I think everyone's like, oh, I would love to be on a reality TV show. But I think they're I like, you know, in the same way that we have platforms and social media, and we get to share lives with people, and like we get to point people towards truth in we get to like share Jesus with it. But yeah, there's hard stuff that comes with it. But I think at the end of the day like I'd rather be a story. Sharon and be in that position and steward at well. Then. Not just because I want to protect enough. You know, it was a good looking back. It was hard. We had our wedding nationally televi- read that. Okay. Let me just say this real quick. I like the O earn. I had a big reading we had like five hundred people there. I wrote it down. I'll just don't worry. Yeah. Two point three million. People watched your wedding. No, worry we joke about this. Because we're like we had to make this decision. We almost didn't film our wedding. We talked about this in the book. We almost did not do it. And we basically were like, okay. Do we want to invite two hundred people to our wedding or two million people to a wedding? Like what you know because we were. So we wanted our wedding to fill intimate. We wanted our wedding to fill us. We didn't want it to feel like this commercialized thing. Like, I didn't want, you know, my friends, and my family have never been on TV never see them into this whole like, hey show, but my wedding. And it's like TSA will you sign this release and all these people in black earphones are walking around. And it's like, no I didn't want that to feel like the environment of our wedding. But I will say like TLC in discovery. And like all of them did such a good job. Like respecting we kind of like. Here's are non-negotiable rights. You know, I'm not gonna do this not gonna do this. You're not gonna film our first, look, you're not gonna film communion. We're going to have these moments that are protected. And then they left during the reception. So like whole reception was just this party. And you didn't have to worry about that in hindsight, like eight gave us the ability to share our story. We would not be reading this book. If it weren't for that, you know, so I'm very thankful for it. But it definitely had its judge. I think that's something that people don't really realize if people who have we'll just use the word platform, even though it can it can make some people feel a little squirmy. But we say what it is that people can have this idea that it's just awesome and fun and all these things, but it comes with a really big responsibility. Yeah. So the way even you guys are talking about we had to weigh all of the all the options here. And if your goal is to shine the light of Jesus, then how can we do this with what God set up for us for some reason other God is like, hey, this is the story. I'm gonna write for you. Yeah. This is a platform. I'm going to set you up for Stewart it. Well, right. Yeah. One hundred percent. And so I can see the stress of having to do that. Yeah. And both Darren I are very like sometimes we over spray. Allies things are over like we get to intentional about. We we just need to give it up and dressed it. It's gotta be. Okay. You know what? I mean. Like, we just need to be told you sometimes we're more those kinds of people like we over analyze the decisions, especially big ones like that. Yeah. So anyways, then we kept filming five years into our married. Four years of our our part of the show that yes, so. Yeah, wedding. We continue to do the show we moved away to Los Angeles right after we got married and fly home for the show every now, and then they came, but it was like not as much then we moved home. We actually moved to bend Oregon, which is like the best place in the entire country. Maybe I shouldn't be telling people because I don't then they're gonna they're I know there's these bumper stickers that people haven't been that say Ben socks don't move here for us to do. Yeah. Yeah. But yeah. So we lived there for two and a half years is amazing. And they filmed a lot of that. We've because then we're closer drove to Portland almost every weekend to film while you're living. There was like four hour drive. Just recently when we found out we were pregnant with ember surprise pregnant, okay wanted to move back home closer to family. So we we moved back when I was pregnant about six months pregnant to be closer to family had our daughter there. And then right after we had our daughter we were like we're done with this. Yeah. So we kind of made our exit was that a decision because you were mom now that was a huge part of it. Yeah. Always said like we didn't want to raise our kids in this environment. That was a huge part of it also though like for a long time we had kind of been just like wrestling with like, okay, Jeremy's ideal career was not to be reality. Tv stars. It's not really what we wanted to be. No for it is what we are known for and we're thankful for it. Allowing us to like open up. Yeah. But it has been kind of a hard transition for us to you know, all these people that are following us. They're following us because we're rowdy TV people. But then like, we never talk about reality TV ever. Like, I never realized. You know, I was on a TV show unless you knew because you're following me from that. Right. Like, we talk about always more in books and being fifty in what we're passionate about our podcast in. It's been hard to kind of get people to go. Like all the sudden, we're like talking about these things, and they kind of didn't expect us. We talk about Jesus. And they're like, wait what like people have been like receptive to that. Because it's just not they weren't. It wasn't an expected thing. Okay. I know what? I mean like it was for some because Jeremy's family like it was a wholesome TV show there. Young. But I think like over the years that element has kind of gotten a little bit like buried initials or not the biggest story line. Yeah. The biggest storyline. Also, just their family. Like all the kids are now married all the time. Yeah. So just stuff has changed with it a lot. So we're just work on just trying to like point people in this like, hey, guys. Here's what we want to be about. Now, if you if you care about it great, and if not like we're not going to be talking about reality TV anymore. So sorry. There are lots of other reality TV shows, they could find out exactly. World is still airing. He'll go. Yeah. They still film. Yeah. Oh, yeah. His family continued. We just stepped away you his family's still there. Gordon, brother and sister in law and my cute little Matthew stars. All the kids are married all except for his younger, brother. Jacob. But he's getting married this summer, then all of them will be married and do all the ones that are married. Have kids know so only there's only my his twin brother has an few and he's four months older than our daughter. And then his sister doesn't have kids yet. Okay. So fun stuff. Okay. Guys. I'm going to take a break from the show real quick. I know you're loving my conversation with Audrey. But I want to thank our sponsors for today's show. This podcast is brought to you by Thomas English muffins. They want to know what our ideal morning would look like if anything were possible. So let me tell you mine. Here's the first question. And I would love to hear what your answer would be. Where would you be eating breakfast? If it was your ideal morning and anything was possible. And with who and what would you talk about? Okay. So if it was my ideal morning like my perfect morning. It'd be with my man, I would love to eat breakfast with air it every morning. That's just not possible in our life right now. But we would maybe be eating on our back porch. And we would talk about just our day in our life and our dreams. Those are my favorite things to do. But if I'm a dream big dreams, you guys I'm going to be eating breakfast with Joanna Gaines in Waco. I'll go to her restaurant. And we'll talk about getting her on the happy hour. That's what we will do. Okay. Next thing about our ideal morning. How would I get to work? You guys, you know, my office is on my property. So I just walked my little hundred yards over to my little tiny house. But if I had to work in town in Austin, and I had to sit in that traffic. I would not enjoy it. So I would want Jetson style a little biddy spaceship to take me into work. We did that be fun. Gained on the spaceship, someone's doing my hair and makeup. Yes. Ideal job right there. And of course, you guys out on that patio with Aaron in Waco with Joanna in my spaceship, I would love to have a Thomas English Muffin topped with I enjoy almond butter. And Honey, it's so good. You guys actually eight that this morning. I love almond butter in the morning to give me some protein. It is so good on the Thomas English Muffin that is the light multi grain. So good Thomas's.

Here's what got us here. Yeah. Yeah. But now ordering into okay? So you're passionate about marriage. Yes. Why are you so passionate about marriage? I love marriage, and I'm asking about it. Yes. Why are you so passionate about marriage? So when we got engaged one of the things we got we got engaged kind of young. I mean, I don't know what you guys would consider young. I was twenty two. So I got married at twenty three. I just turned twenty three. Yes. I mean, and I know on the west coast it's a little bit like, whoa, they're young in the south. It's not like too old. Yeah. So but for us we got tons of pushback from people just like get ready to lose your freedom. You know buckle up like making these just really negative remarks about Mary or like strangers because strangers because the platforms also friends and even family making just like the sarcastic like oh boy buckle up from area. You know? And we were just kind of like wall. What Mike why aren't people? Why don't people talk about like the really good parts of their marriage, and why aren't people encouraging us as engaged newly engaged couple. And we just like both of us are kind of romantics at Har and like all they stories in typing love letters. I love it yet. So like there's a little bit of an element of that. And then after we got married all these people watched our wedding. And it was just kind of like what people were interested in. And so people ask me like, you know, what made you guys feel cold to marriage, and it's like, I don't know the necessarily we felt called to marriage. And I think calling is a word that kind of scares me. And I'm like, I don't know. I think God might call me to a lot of different ways. But I think at the time it was just the thing that we were the most passionate about it was the thing that people wanted about like, I would literally get questions from people. And I would Ford them to my mom. I was like titled. No, why aren't people asking me this married a week? But Jared I were just like, well, you know, what like we can just share what we're learning and what we're failing at and what we're learning from. The couples that the Lord has been so faithful to provide for us as mentor ship because we've just had such rich mentorship in our life. I think Lord is just really protected us in that way. And from people that don't have platform platform that word again guy now, but from people that don't have a means to really get that message out. So we've taken a lot of wisdom just from our Primero counselors in our parents, and and you know, other couples that got us surrounded us with and just kind of recycled it. Yeah. Or even had them do guest post and stuff like that. But really it was just that. That was the thing that we are the most passionate about at the time, and we both loved writing, and we kind of wanted to scratch that entrepreneurial niche, and so that's where we started. And then this book was just kind of like a ripple effect of that. I just made the most sense for us. But it's by no means like where we want to stay forever. It's definitely something that we are really passionate about, but we have other ideas and things that we so we want to you acknowledge like where I haven't been married that long. What are you waiting to know for me? Yeah. Because I think the same as with parenting or the same as with people ask us a lot, of course about adoption in. Yeah. We've been adopted parents for thirteen years, and I still feel like right? Have looking back at like we learned from the beginning. And we're still learning. This is how it goes, you know. And so, yeah, I'm appreciative for you guys. Looking and saying, hey for all of you guys who are in the same boat as us. Here's what we're learning right to so your webpage beating fifty percent. So being fifty percent is kind of like, the mayor blog resource thing. And it's all about the pun is the divorce rate. But that's not the focus is at the divorce rate will so the divorce rate has been actually going down because Leslie getting married just. Just. That's part of the whole like that's also something we don't we want to like encourage people that like marriage can be an amazing thing. And but the, but the kind of concept of beating fifty is like, you know, to give more than fifty percent to your marriage is drive towards that one hundred and it kind of goes back to like, my light life mantra thing always more. It's just that you can always get Mortier marriage just believing that you can always give more. There's always more ways that you can love serve grow in your marriage. And so that's kind of like the ideology behind it. I guess for us. Yeah. And then we created this thing called the marriage journal that we've been doing for the past five years of our marriage are promote counselors actually introduced us to the idea. They have four kids and have been doing it for eighteen years. Oh, talented it is. But it is basically six questions that you ask your spouse every week same six questions. It's so simple. So easy. Every night week. Okay. So once a week, we do it Sunday nights in the questions are like what brought you joy this week. What's one thing? I can do for you this week. Is there any unconfessed San or hurt anything that we knew reconcile? What's a dream craving or desire? That's been on the forefront of your mind. I can't remember the ones. Yeah. But every week they're the same questions over and over. And we just felt like those were the questions that like, you know, when your marriage when you you never had that good time to talk about it. It was like that was the good time to talk about it. We are guaranteed that time every week to ask those questions, and it's been like the best communication in our marriage. I'm not just saying that because we created it like we literally do it. Every so hard thing had to have come up. So some weeks, it's two hours some weeks. It's two minutes because we're so tired, right. Yes. Hard things have come up, and it's an opportunity for us to like not lingering bitterness because we know we're going to get that question. Is there any herder unconfessed sin, and like sometimes there were weeks in our marriage where like dreaded that question because you know, you don't wanna talk about the, you know, but it. Kept us just in this space of honesty, and communication. And also like what's one thing? I can do this one one simple thing I can do from my husband that week. How can improve you? We take a sticky note, and we'd do the rewrite those things on a sticky note. So we can see all week. Yeah. 'cause otherwise it's just in the journal better. Yeah. Beyond fifty two week journal. We wrote like devotional to our each week. Yeah. For people, but that's been like, a huge, huge help in our marriage and lots of people have kind of gravitated towards that. So that's kind of like become a huge part of beating fifty as that jerk. Jeff. So I think about that even we've been married this will be eighteen years. Oh, wow. Yeah. So cool. But even like when you're talking about just those like that time on Sunday night answering those questions as you guys already have full busy lives with work himself. But as you're adding kids as you're adding new careers, as you're adding new things easier, it gets crazy Z, which like, I can't even fathom. But I know is true. I mean, it is like air like we're sticklers for date nights. But sometimes we only get to. Because we have all these kids have all these activities in all the things. And so I can see the value insane. Every week rate. We're gonna sit down to answer these questions. Yeah. I'm sure you've had phenomenal feedback from people who have. Yeah. Taken this challenge. And you can do it like you do not have to be religious. I mean, it's just like the simplest. Yeah. It's so easy. We have couples that are in their seventies. Do it. And then we have like twenty year olds. Yeah. You know? And it's just like my parents do it. You know, like, it's just easy. So sweet. Yeah. So okay. Tell me about your clothing company. Okay. So so I was a distance runner in college and all through high school grown up, and they used to write always more on my arm. It was like a motivational running reminder, you know, Audrey you can always give a little bit higher. Yeah. And so it started as that in Maine. I used to read it on my arm all through college and other girls on my team started writing on on their arms. And then when I got I used to I had like a blog at the time that was like totally like boring. I'm sure it was I wrote about writing and my faith though, the main thing I wrote about and so always more was kind of like the main consistent deemed or it couple years ago. I think now it's been like three years. I was like we'll be fun to put always more t shirts. So we started dabbling in the retail space. And again that was kinda around the time we were like wanting to leave corporate America, and scratch that onto Pearl niche. So he launched his clothing line, always more. It's about inspiring women to always believe in the more. That is within them through Christ comes from the verse diffusion through twenty and yes, so it's it's just about like inspiring women to believe in the more. That's within them and the more that they can give through through Christ's, energy and strength. And then also like the more that there is to discover about God. And who he is. And it's not just about the more that you can do or be. But it's about like the more of who got is has he's infinite, and we are not so clothing line. Yeah. So Obeidi super fun. It's like it's all like comfy stuff you can wear every day because I've seen some yourself on my like that hood. What was sweat shirt usurp? I'm like, I would never ever take that off. Yeah. It's like, I don't and Jeremy Jeremy stole mine and started wearing and I'm like, you know, you can get your own. And then I was like, oh like we could totally make these guys. So we're like now like maybe makes money people by their. It's like wearing a blanket literally. But I was like, okay. I wanna have stuff that people can wear everyday that's like on the mundane days of life. It's going to inspire them to believe in the malls within them, you know, because you have sixty bucks to spend. Are you gonna spend it on that sweatshirt that you love that you're gonna wear everyday or address you might wear once every six my girl. I'm with you like for me. I by the cozy close. Yeah. He's time. Yes. Yes. So yeah. It's been fun. It's been really fun, and it's grown a lot. Like, I think close to one hundred girls have always more tattooed on their body now. Which is just like, oh, how does that make you feel? I'm like this. Do you have a tattooed on your body? I don't do you want to I go back and forth. I don't have any tattoos. Okay. Do you? Yeah. Have. Okay. Oh. Do I go back and forth? Sometimes I'm like, oh, man. Like, it makes sense because I started with writing on your body. Yeah. But I've just I've just I'm not that I'm against high twos. I just have like done it. Maybe someday I have four. Wow. So have these two in the to unseal catious, meaning in no, my I had to is dumb. I would get off. I bought if I could. But it's a hard on my bikini line. And I was nineteen years old. I mean, like rebellion tattoo wanted attached you it's funny because I was telling the store the other day. I always wanted to touch you ever since I was like early teenager in when I was in high school some friends I knew got twos. But it's illegal. If you're not hating eight. So they had fake ID's. I'm sure my guy, and so I had a fake ID at high school. I was bad Audrey I fast. So I had to take. And I was going to go get a tattoo because I could add this idea. I'm sure could have found a place that would do it. And this guy I was dating was like, you know, what you should really just wait until you're old enough to make sure you like it. And I'm like, I've never had anything good come out of bad. Dating relationships with that advice was so good. So funny as I waited till I was in college. And so I was okay legal. But it's funny. I mean, I've had a baby the heart doesn't really look much like art. But so I haven't fan of tattoos. But I always think you should never get tattoo. If you're like, I don't know. Like, you need to be like, oh, yes. If I ever got one it would one hundred percent de that. Like absolutely where we put it. But I don't know. I think that thing is like gotta put it somewhere where I can kind of hide it. But then what's the point in putting it somewhere? You can hide it if you're not because I wrote it on my arm. So I could see it. Yeah. I know on Monday. I'm like, so. Yeah. It sounds like you're not ready yet. Not ready. Just Jeremy have tattoos. He maybe. Oh, gosh. I just got nervous. We could cut this out because MRs Roloff. No, no about jetties. We'll just put the question Mark on. Maybe maybe maybe this is real off knows. It's okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. So let me laugh so much. Okay. Let's talk you really love Instagram. I do about them. So for me. I just think like I'm really into all that kind of stuff. Okay. Love self growth. Self-discovery? Sorry and nine away where it becomes an excuse. I think people need to be careful with that. I'm sure you've heard this. But in you know, this, but a lot of people can be like, oh, I'm this number. And so therefore, I'm going to be this way. But like any excuse for sin, right? Yeah. And so like, they need Graham has been like be most helpful because it's so comprehensive. It's got so many layers to it. It's not like, here's my Myers, Briggs. Are here's my strengths finder? It just I don't know I've loved that about it. I love the roots of it. We've like even studied like where it came from like, we had Chris you're the guy that wrote sacred integral on our podcast, and he's just like brilliant my book, I wanna read. Yeah. But yeah, like path between us road road back to you loved both of those books, and it's been so helpful as a marriage tool. Yes. Just like relationships, whether it's with people that we work with or in our marriage, or I I can imagine having older kids. You try not to diagnose them, even though we have really. Yeah. Big feelings. Well, okay. Can you Bill yet who wrote the path between us and co authored the road back to you? Yes. I love her so much. You know, how you said you did and everyone sees you Davis, which Suzanne she's a dear friend yet. And you're like, she's just so lovely. Yes. How I feel about Susan. That's awesome. I just wanna sit next to her and like, maybe hold her hand or letter put her arm around here, something she's so dear anyhow, she's been on the show, and she suggests and this is just I take her word because she's smart to not have rickets Sega tasks and not really trying to diagnose diagnose, listen, not medical. But you know, what? I mean, try not to put something on them until they're I can't remember the age, but my son's fifteen and I think I need to wait a little bit longer. Yeah. Even though we did let him take a task because we were taking tests one time family, and he's like I want to do it. And so he took it the funny thing is he tested. Exactly what air, and I think that he is. Okay. So you didn't tell them that you thought that he was not. Oh, okay. We think he's a four oldest. Okay. We'll now he knows. Yeah. Well. He doesn't listen to this show. We kidding, but. Yeah. So it's interesting kids. Yes. You start to like, see and my other three one of them. We kind of have a suspicion. The other two were just kinda like, we don't know. So it's fun to see how it goes. But Suzanne innings that it is in us from I believe in us. I believe that I can trauma or tragedy. Wound was in you. Yeah. I think so too. I I believe that I think that a lot of it. I think your childhood can shape it like the the childhood experiences in childhood wounds, and all that stuff like can shape it. But I don't think that you can change. That's what she said. So you're eight an excellent people surprisingly like I think that everyone in the world knows about the Ingraham whenever I talk about it. Some people are like what are you talking about this number's? And so can you explain it? Well, so yeah, any other. Yes, we'll you'll feel the gap. But yeah. So it's like nine point personality typing system, basically, there's no like it doesn't mean that. No good. Right. It doesn't mean I'm better than a one. It's just that's what they're called each number has its own like nickname that people use some people don't like the nicknames. But it's basically a self discovery for self growth tool. Rachel, and that's what we've loved about. It shows us the box were in teaches us how to get out of it not to stay in it. And so I'm an eight which is the challenger and Siri Justice or entity, right? Yeah. Yeah. Do you know a lot of female eights 'cause there's not many. No, I don't. What am I kids might be an aid? Really, maybe. Yeah. I mean, would you know figuring out so misconception? You're technically not supposed to tell people you're number. But I know a lot of people do it. Because then it's a fun conversation a hobby. You can talk about it, whatever. But then people can like prescribe onto people make these assumptions, and so it's supposed to be a self discovery self growth thing. Not like a everyone asks what's your number? What number? I know. I know, and it's it's a fun conversation to have. I just that's what I've been told. I've just been told like technically you're not supposed to even though we do all the time. Then someone someone you're like, oh, that's what she does. Yes. Right. Because then I don't want it to be. I don't want it to be. I don't wanna do that for my friends. I don't wanna go. Gosh. She's such a to do like, I don't wanna be that person. So, but yeah, I'm a challenger. I challenge. Everything eights are like the need to be against. I've seen a lot in my relationship with the Lord just like everything I read I'm like challenge this before I know it. But then once I know it. You're humble it. Yeah. And I think there's there's levels of the program where like Suzanne probably talked about this. But like the you can be a social eight or a sexual eight or if there's another one I forget, but there's like three levels. So your number actually has like three wings with eat in it separate from like the wings that you can also have. So like, I know when you say you're eight it's kind of like people are probably thinking like, oh, well, she's this way. But there's layers to it like, I'm like, probably one of the most compassionate people. Like, I'm so compassionate for an eight. Like, I see a heard a puppy, and I'm like, no. Yeah. Let's me to the point. Where like I burn myself out in exhaustion from like trying to save everyone and everything. Yeah. And so like, there's which isn't really common in or in certain kinds eight so, yeah, it's been just so cute. My husband's nine peacemaker, right? And he's maker. So very different. We're referred to has fire in ice. If look us up on any 'cause he. He's like no conflict, and I'm lying bring on the conflict gas conflict is where intimacy is gonna come. And then I'm gonna love, you know, you better which is like some people's like my worst nightmare. Yeah. I promise is great. But not like, I also think like I've learned a lot from knowing that about myself that my approach to conflict has become much healthier. I used to just like say these brush things too like spark conversation people, and I've really learned to just kind of like not not do that is to get a reaction from people in spark a conversation like to just be a little bit more sensitive to that. And that's one of the reasons I love it. Yeah. So I've learned a lot about it's helped our marriage some as well Ahrends a three I'm a six. Okay and six is the loyalists. Yeah. But we also are motivated a lot by fear. And so I'm very worst case scenario type of person even in work life. I'm always like I mean, we've been doing happy our live events for this is like seven weekends. So you know, we do him twice a year. Four hundred million and they sell out every single time and every single time in particular. I think will anyone come to this whites like it should. But that's just this. But knowing that about myself. Yeah. I kind of go it's teaching me to trust myself a little bit more. I trust the process and trust all the things and it's helped our marriage because before Aaron be like, it's so dumb that you think that. Yeah. And when I told him like, it's kind of belittling to think that my fears are done because they're so real to me. Right. So no longer like that is dumb. But he can just be like. Oh, so that's how you feel. Yeah. That's it. He doesn't so. Right. It's been good people. Ask me, and I'd love to hear what you say people. Ask me. How do I figure out my number? I say listen in read, so I would have to test or helpful, but I tested different than I actually am. Yeah. I think the test can give you like if you take the tests, whatever top three numbers, you get your probably one of those top three. That's how many read about those three. Yeah. And you know, any game institute the crap out of it. Institute is like what I found to be the most your best they know their stuff. I love listening to podcasts about it lasts all the bug. Guests. People are listening cast listener so go with radio podcasts about the there are so many we have one to there you go. There you go. Everyone needs to go find it. Okay. So one of the things that you had mentioned that you were kind of struggling through right now, which I think is really common for women is about community finding community struggling with community. What is like for you guys right now? Yeah. Yeah. I care that no one it looks like for you guys to. So we had this time when we were living in bend of really rich intense community weeded house church with ten to fifteen families. It kind of grew while we were there, and it was just the most like spiritual growth we've ever experienced accountability. Like literally doing life with people. If there's a neat among us. It was met, you know, like an all the kids just in church like it was such a beautiful thing. Very New Testament church. And I'd never experienced that. We grew up in bigger churches, you know, west coast has not the mega church, but then when we moved to L A, we went to mosaic, which is really big church, and then went to house church and experience just this richness. And then when we moved home back to Portland, it was moving home for us, which we really had been away for all of college, and then the few marriage, and so all the sudden all over friends are old friends had kind of plugged in to where they wanted. And we're kind of like just set there, you know, and we just were kind of looking to Greek create what we had extended India not that we're like against traditional church at all I think that like serves its place in God is totally at work there. But just to have that, you know, what people call it community group trial, whatever. And so we just really craved that and we tried to like do that with people, and it was just we really discouraged by trying. We just kind of gave up on Asli and this past the posture. We kind of replaced all that rich community time with working honest. Yeah. And our businesses are doing great and work has been really good feel this void one hundred percent. Where like I. Related and we worked too much, and we don't have people speaking into our marriage and calling us out on our stuff, and we need that especially being in a place where like where you're speaking to so many people up. Yeah. Exactly. And we need people checking us, and so I think that like someone one of my friends, we have a lot of really close friends that live across the country. Maybe you feel this way too. But like my girls that I can let call that like kind of get they do what I do in some way. So they can get my struggles. Because I think sometimes maybe you feel this way like talking to my friends about like a struggle at Jeremy, and I are having with working together. And this thing that we're about to launch like my friends that like, you know, work at Nike or whatever like I love them, and they can speak into other areas of my life. But it just as hard for me when I started to share that struggle. I kind of feel dumb even though I know it's not like, that's my struggle. But like totally so I have my girls that like I call that live across the country that kinda get like an I think it's important. If you do what do work, whatever, you do you have to have people that work in your space to that? Get those Ruggles that kind of burned for what you burn for, you know, and we've had a hard time finding those people in proximity. Yes. And so I just think like, I don't know. Like, oh, it's it's been a tough. It's been a hard thing for us. And we really Jeremy as a huge like side, passion heart for just what's happening in the church and just kind of like bringing church back to like what it was supposed to be. He always says like we win them to what we win them with. So if we're winning them to church with these things, we're going to win them to those things, coffee and music and writing. Yeah. Whatever waiting them with Jesus we're gonna win them to. Jeez. Right. You know? So I don't know. That's just where wrestling through that. We're trying to figure out what we need. Any some sweet older couple one hundred zero. Yeah. Who wants you just have you ever heard once a month and just pour into you? That's what you need in your life right now. Yeah. Honestly, we actually do we try to once a month meet with an older couple. Yeah. And so like, and I'd say we actually do that we do once a month. But they're like it's like one of our friends from Ben when we go to earn. Yeah. And then like, you know. Yeah. It's not the same couple every time. But still those things are like life show. I've given you our long dinner conversations, and those have been huge, but just that day in and day out life, like the friend that I can call up and like come watch my daughter, but also like gets my struggles, and I can help and I think to just for Jaren I to be able to like serving serve any tangible way more just trying to figure that out. Yeah. It is. It is a dance, and I'll tell you you're going to be doing that dance forever. Because it looks different for us now with four kids and three of the main teenagers, right? So and it's hard to do things because they have and it's not even like our kids are doing. Eighteen different things. It's just there's four of them doing one thing each and so that just gets difficult, and I think finding community in unique ways like having girlfriends like you said that for me live across the country as well what I do. Yeah. And then even just having I think there's something special to some of my friends here locally. You don't do what I do. There's something kind of refreshing. I yeah, I totally agree. You know, what I mean to get all the just come and not have to be a hot caster speaker Ryder, right? But I've had those friends before I became this. You know what I mean? So I'm not meeting new friends, and then how comfortable in that space. Yeah. If that makes sense, that's I can totally resonate with that. Because I I've had the same group of childhood best friend. They're all so close, and I'm really close with them to they're all my wedding kindergarten met. Yeah. A high all live in the same neighborhood a mile from their parents still all of our parents are friends. It's like that. Yes. And they're all and I love them dearly. I just over the years have. Been the one that's maybe gone gone away. They all they all stayed and I left. Yeah. And I'm coming back, and I'm so grateful for those friendships because they did know me before this and that they are refreshing. They are you know. And but I just I think I need both. Yeah. You know, total is. Oh, yeah. I think it's just good that the conversation is happening for me. You anyone's listening is to knowledge here's what I know that I feel that I need. There's a void. Yes. In how am I going to find like unique ways to figure out how to help the situation, and it looks different all the time another baby looks different. You know? It's just everything is just adjusting readjusting. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. What three things? Do you love him? What are you reading? Okay. Loving. So I'm like have you tried who I can't wait the juniper Lotte from Starbucks? I don't even know ju- juniper berries, Aaron has very cake before. Okay. Well, like, you know, Jin. Yeah. Is juniper berry. I coach Univer very literally Jerry ever. Jen is vodka gin is literally von. With juniper berry. I've never heard this montage life. I'm not as. Gen lever. Okay. So it it doesn't taste like gin offically way. But when I'm in Spain, and you get a gin and tonic. It has Juniper's doesn't have juniper. They black. Well, juniper is kind of actually kind of like a blue. Okay. I'm just thinking about juniper trees, look like Bruce blue sagebrush, I had a gin and tonic in Spain. And it had these like berries in it did have a berries in it. Okay. That's cool. I know I've never seen that in states. Yeah. I've never seen that. Okay. Kerryon awesome. Juniper lot. We're I'm not even a huge Starbucks fan. But like this thing is so good. And I we're show you drink. No. Because I don't like sweet. I don't do any. We just do coffee me to like that's journey. I cannot do even vanilla either way. I play lotto you with all those like earthy, but it's not weird. Okay. I'm gonna get t law -tay, I pulled my Instagram followers. I'm like who's tried to juniper law and only five percent had tried it? And I never even heard of it. What it's so. Oh, good. Like, I think people are weirded out when they see it. But I love it and to the world. We've been to the world we're gonna try. Okay. Do you ever that tune bullet day blowing any Graham stuff? Yeah. Just been really into that lately. Learning nine as a tool, and let's see have you listened to sleep in it lasts podcast about the house. I don't think they've come out with the song have you gone through the songs and stuff. I have really only listened to the ones that I have friends that are like, yeah. Yeah. Have they gotten to eight yet? They weren't the last time. I checked. Okay. So they probably are now. But yeah. And then we love we have fireplace in my house, and we love evenings by the fire in the winter outside on the farm in the summer. But like we just love our knees by the fire reading and just chilling, and we're trying to be more intentional about just kind of like turning off work at a certain time. It's so hard, and we give really. Really hard guys because you worked together the same thing. And your daughter is in bed at seven or whatever. Yeah. So we're like cross. Yes clock. Yeah. I mean, my kids are still tonight. It's a Friday night though. Hang we will hang till midnight. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Totally. Okay. Fire. We are places. Well, yeah. It's a way to my heart. Oh my gosh. Aaron knows if he wants to like really show me that he loves him. He'll build me a fire. Yeah. That's so we named our daughter ember because we fell in love or on a campfire pit like fires are like so Jeremy has to build a fire at least once a week or he just doesn't feel like a man. So yeah, that's a huge thing. We've been loving that. So that's awesome. Okay. What are you reading these days? Reading a lot of Jesus storybook by all the best. Honestly, I've been in a dry spell of reading because we've been in this writing I didn't read much when I was writing you can't. And I love reading a love books. You should see your house. It's like when we move. It's like we're moving. I love it. So we love books, but Jesus storybook I've been reading all obviously a lot of any himself. I really wanna read story brand.

Yeah. But yeah. Just heard amazing things. Yeah. It's good stuff. Good stuff. Yeah. Jesus. Zorba bible is just it's like my literally. So we read I read it. I read a chapter every morning. We're just trying to get in the rhythm like early. We wanna read we'll talk every day.

Jeremy + Audrey Roloff

"What's up everybody welcome back to a couple of things, Sean and Andrew Podcast all about couples and things? Like that all. Hope you're having a great day today we sit down with Jeremy and Audrey Roloff you may recognize the roll offs from the reality TV show called little people big world. Since leaving that show, they have gone on to do huge things including being New, York Best New York Times bestselling author does say that right Yes New York Times bestselling author of a book called the Love Letter? Life yes. We talk a lot about their kind of roller coaster of their relationship going from reality television to the social media to them becoming parents in the public eye we talk about all the different kind of job opportunities and There are so-called to work plate over the past few years. They've they talk a lot about how they're actually slowing down right now because they got so overwhelmed with all of it and reprioritising life. This is a really impressive couple I think we kind of have a similar kind of niece that we're in as far as what things we talk about honor podcasts and Youtube but I really respect these. We actually were able to join them on their podcast show called behind the scenes a couple of months ago, really enjoyed getting to know them and this was a great continuation of that Also recently, it is worth noting that they came out with a marriage journal, which is quote unquote the best the world's best communication tool for marriage, and it's designed to do once a week with your spouse and it's just a cool communication tool. For husband and wife to do together. Yes I think you guys are GonNa like this podcast. They have a lot of great insights and opinions and just tips and tricks for relationships. We even took away from and thought it would better our relationship before jump into it please subscribe this show and give it a rating on whatever platform you're listening, and let's jump into this one with Jeremy and Audrey Roloff. Jeremy. Audrey thank you so much for joining us today. It's good to see your face again. What a pleasure thanks I know you guys are on vacation. So thanks for making the sacrifice. Never, really on vacation when we do a hard cast. And you're always kind of a vacation. Hardcastle those beautiful things you can do whatever. So yeah, it's pretty great weight. So didn't you guys just take a break from your podcast? We are yes, we are officially this is the first week technically that we are in break mud. So we're doing the summer off. Onto that decision. A lot you. Go. We've gone in the season. A lot of our listeners know we've been in this season of. Just starting to choose and focus on specific things and we love the podcast. But as you guys know, it takes a lot of energy man we needed to reserve as much energy as possible to make some other decisions in our life right now and we just figured. Let's say let's call the season. So we're not quitting or podcasts ending season four, four season and given it at least summer breaks of. I really respect that I have been. Really thinking especially during the corn teen were like at first we were like, oh, Gosh, we create all this content because people like need to optimism and positivity, and then I feel like about a month and a half into that we hit rock bottom show bottom. Tall. Wear. Like we got. With you. Yeah. It's it's tough and it takes a toll on. Like my mom whenever we have a podcast interview or we're about the content, it's like, oh my gosh, like we got to prepare and then like deduct prepare enough. Oh did I, miss this. Am I going to like It takes a lot of mental space does and So I. I. Respect that also in light of. I don't know how you feel about this if you've thought about this but like. Rachel and Dave Hollis that whole situation of of dim getting divorce and really total Shannon I. They were doing a lot of things that Sean and I wanted to do with the marriage conferences and and the books all about like having healthy relationships and what it's like working with your spouse and it really made me pause when when they hit their thing, it's okay. I never want to touch that. What can we do to protect that? So I respect your decision. Yeah. Thank you, guys. That did come as a bit of a shock and I personally Audran I felt. We felt this for a couple months now a or really maybe a year we've been like holy smokes we gotta start pumping the brakes and start evaluating. Four years ago we quit the family television. Show. In effort to do all this odd casting and online right books and encourage and inspire, and it's been nothing but on but it come at A. At a cost for sure as everything does. And so we're definitely evaluating right now and we shutdown always more which was a company that was based on Audrey. Life Mantra always believed the more that's within you from the three twenty and we shut we cancelled our book contract and. and. Lean back yeah. Back and slow down because it all it catches up really quickly and. And so easy to paint pictures online in with what we with what we do an often I want us as you just said stay so far away from that we want us today as true to ask as healthy as possible. Say Notice things was definitely a requirement for us right now I was Gonna ask what we were looking at the. The big news of you releasing Bursts Omitting the second manuscript book but Sean and I went through the phase of saying no, not too long ago and in my mind I was like I'm saying, no to these things are shutting the door to these things. So I can open more doors and I realized that's the wrong meant that like. I just gotTa say no and just there's something to. Be. Said about being content in half with. The Internet us. It just shows you everything. You're not every thing you could do everyone you should be everywhere you could go. It's just all of these name ships feelings in were being bombarded in the news wearing I mean that's a whole other element of the anxiety problem and it's like all day every day or consuming. A billion reasons of how we're less than. Yeah, it's really fascinating emotional problem. A lot of are used as we know is facing and we're facing ones that are like in it. You know it none of this is to say bag. We love what we do. It's awesome i. just feel like pacing ourselves worth thirty starting our family to kids we don't. Yeah. We don't take over the world by thirty five, and that's something like really embraced the last couple of months in midsummer decision. So. I mean, I don't want to linger on topic too long but I feel like we could dive into this very deep because Internet I've had a lot of conversations like this. Actually like when you're within like when you're in industry within entertainment or social media. Your job is to create so. Off Work and you're not on your computer and you turn your cell phones off at five o'clock you never turn work off you can't as soon as you turn it off, your career stops and it's such this over consuming career. We are constantly trying to think of what image you're portraying, what you're saying who you are when you go out to the grocery store because it goes with your brand and Andrew Nye have talked a lot about when it comes to a podcast. What do we want to divulge? What do we want to talk about? Because we're also putting ourselves on the line and were being vulnerable and it's almost like marital therapy but yet, there might still be open wounds like added. Now we hit rock bottom. But I do think I think it's a really complicated. It's complicated. You know time and career to be in like guy said, you're taking a step back to have perspective on the priorities. It's so easy to get lost that way. and. It's so easy to be like, Oh, I want to take over the world by thirty five. I, have to do more. We have to make more we have to create more we have to. What was if you don't mind US asking the turning point for you guys where you said. We can't continue to do more. We need to take a step back for us. Baby. Number One. and. Let it doubled with baby number two. I think the simple way a minute various but obviously, I think like for us, we made a lot of big commitments and we sort of like, let's dip our toes in all waters before we had case in, had all the energy in the world and all the time in the world and. We were very ambitious and we're like, okay let's that sign the book contracts and start the ministries in started a podcast in star, these clothing line and all these different things and kind of see which thing takes off or C. which thing we decide that we want to be the most miniature, the most passionate about or focus on and they all sort of not took off at the same time but took off in their own way, and then we added a kid to that and you're like Whoa we like committed to. We didn't think that all of these things we're gonNA it sounds weird. But like work in the way that they did and we never intended to do all of them, we just intended to kind of try and. What we wanted most, and so we had to go through this process of like, okay. We started all these things sort of at the same time. We need a slowly one by one decide which things need to go so that we can better focus on the things that you really feel like this is our sweet spot. This is like what Lord made us to do, and this is the thing that we equally love and is GonNa give us the lifestyle that we want and the family dynamics that we want in. So. I mean I think just having kids you guys know changes your perspective on. So many things like that was a really big turning point. It was kind of a garage I. Feel like it was a little bit of gradual process for us. We just kept getting in bed at night in. You just said it's so great You can't like the second you turn off your phone you turn off your career in some sense are as what we're supposed to do is create and we just kept getting in bed at night going like. This is kind of working but I don't like it anymore. and. So that was we woke up like that may be I. Don't know half a dozen times before we were like we this is supposed to create a lifestyle we wanted but now we're not living the lifestyle we wanted that we set out to do in the first place. So something's changed. So it's Kinda that gradual realization for us. and we're really excited for accepts but saying, no is Andruzzi to says such it is in art so hard. I it's it's also. This last thought on this in our line of work the time where you can say, yes to the most amount of things and you have the most opportunities is when you have like have a massive life event like another child, you know what I'm saying So we did that we launched our podcast a week after we a because I thought that was a great idea and being like. You see lead. Over the hospital and he's bad we a film podcast. What? And then I now in retrospect it's like no that's not the priority that is not the priority and it's great and it's probably working. It's fun by there's pros and cons. Anyway one thing we have in common Jeremy I don't I don't know if the girls could attest to this is we both looked better with short hair so dude I. Last time we talked, right yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I think like the day before is when we cut it but. Yeah. It was fun. It was was a good experiment but. There's nothing like getting out of the pool. Or Waking Up just knowing I can go and crews. Bet. Did. You had like those Frodo Baggins, curls to you like. I didn't see it but now I, look back it's funny because I always law in the moment I I'm going to look back on this and think something but now Yeah. This the cover of our bent goes I. Looked back on some pictures with his long hair and he's like, why didn't you make me cut my hair and I'm like well, I'd try for like three years 'cause one. Oh. You wanted to see Jed love the curls and I was really sad. If, it wasn't for I. Love the curls, but I also just like everything I like change you know. Like I, feel like he has hair long for three or four years. Longtime three three and a half years and I like it was just kind of like time you know but I loved. I can swing. It was the point at which I saw a little receding hairline and then you walk down the street and you see like an all dude with the pony. Tail. It's when you start. Like a lot of people that don't do it really well. This is not. going. Around. And I was like bed yeah. Yeah Yeah. I have to say I haven't. This is my favorite when you laugh like that and he's done that three times. Oh I haven't made her laugh like that and. I. Guess. So I am curious. How did you guys meet? We have to take it back. Take it back. Well. We met on. A blind date before church essentially is a blunt. Yeah. It was a blind date before church. We had mutual friends that one group with Jeremy, one garbage me and they start dating. His one of his best friends that he your with transferred to my high school and started dating one of my best friends. So they were my friends and they were like you guys would be perfect together and neither were really looking to date. Neither of US had ever been on a blind date before we both almost bailed last minute. Jeremy showed up at my door I answered the door soaking wet in covered in mud in my running buns and sports rocks. I, just got back from like a run I was running in, Colorado? And jared like who is this girl I hope is your sister and it wasn't but we had per stay it was not like well at first sight we were definitely interested in each of wasn't like was interest at first sight or sure I was I was totally intrigued win the world I should probably know more about her. ME. I have some questions I can we as a girl like the logistics have this? I started sweating at the idea that he showed up early. Enough. You had just gotten out of the shower. Listen. I was I. didn't shower I didn't get out of this I got back. How! Did? We End She hadn't even showered. In that hasn't early were yield five years of marriage, and that hasn't always I'm always running late literally getting out of the shower and I'm like good kids loaded cars on. Areas Mohamed literally just I mean he could have answered the door and no one could have been there. My family was all out of town and I literally just got back night literally answered around was like Hey I'm not ready go inside make yourself at home. I'M GONNA, go get ready and then he was like let him in my parents kitchen so I walked to the kitchen yeah. Make yourself at home The kitchen like what in the world? One hundred percent by myself blind date. The whole thing was just not been our friends. Met Us. So it was like a double blind date so they made it last. And then we had the finding. It's actually one of my favorite stories in book is we obviously tell the whole the whole me and it's it's a laugh I read is still on my man bay that was funny meet but. It was it was a we kept kept that I mean really I was just that was my I started pursuing her nose Kinda my. It was her that. What am I saying? Was Not enemies saying. What not into Jeremy but I wasn't really like in a place in my life where I was like trying to find. Your spirit is dating a little bit like put a lot of pressure on the next person that I dated and I was like this next person I'd as my spouse inside had like this like really stubborn like kind of prideful attitude and hence Jeremy pursuing me for two years. We were friends before I even was like I kind of like you. And then. We finally started dating after two years of friendship and then we did three years long distance and graduated college and got married the month after. I feel like a lot of people over spiritualized dating. Yeah. Split over that. Screw. We learned through I don't think we really got out like during it. It was a problem for me not so much for Jeremy. But like Inter dating relationship was definitely think for me a lot about a lot of its perspectives. I think we do talk about that exact concept actually but in our book, but I think a lot of it is perspective in what I mean by that is you know the over spiritualize ation of dating is. We should take it somewhat seriously and we should be somewhat careful and critical and not go you know. But also you have to like meet people know people the difficulties of it in the dangers I think specifically in a sexual based culture has. Totally outweighed the risks. So a lot of people in the Christians record looking at the risks and then taking the act of going on a date. So serious because we see this huge pile of risks involved that's something I see at least recently and really just because I mean I mean everything is just so centralized like I. Even I even have a friend who is in the dating world and she does the same thing someone will ask out just like, oh, I can't like he's not I know he's not the one I'm like she just over hype it so much, and there's nothing wrong with going and meeting a human being totally or no strings attached. We're forgetting how to do that though. Yeah. But I think. I think as long as you're going to meet another human being with the expectation that you're just going to meet another human being and like it's not for like Oh, let me go hook up with Randall. which I think is kind of a mixed bag. It's like the expectation is, hey, we're going to up because whatever it's fun but it's it's it's just way more actually enjoyable. If if I like coffee dates frigging, that was my jam back in the day. Off Meter. I do feel like though. If more people. Set the expectation of going to me another human being they would end up. Immigration chips. Yeah. Because if you go in thinking Oh, this is going to be my husband someday or something I mean. I would. I'd have a heart attack too many people are looking for a husband and wife they're not looking for a friend and we all now friends are the foundation of relationship. So if you're. Looking for a friend pressures off and you might find yourself with a husband Rice at your best friends with. My sound a little like located. But seriously we're going we won't go coffees because we're like they're not husband wife material like with I. You have no idea why instant stock them for. You'll hang out for a minute. Comes of it then you might find yourself in love and again that goes back to the classic. You can't choose you fall in love with you can't spend you can choose who's been timeless. Obviously has a lot and I think it's so true but. Audrey true or false I want you to answer this question I and Jeremy You answer it. A male and female can play tonic befriends. In general. Yeah. For sure yeah. Okay, how can I refine that? I don't think. that. I. Think. Yes. A We actually we also talk about this in our book of just because it's relevant to our own story in our own dating relationship So it's something that we've shared vulnerably in our book but. I, think it's just something that you have to be careful with like I have a lot of guy friends and to be honest like my personality I tend to almost like connect with is better than girls sometimes and same. That's like a thing for me. And then has a lot of girlfriends to and we in even in marriage and dating all the way through but I think what gets tricky is when you just don't have any sort of boundaries for those types of relationships and not to specify it to like nee- having relationships with the mailrooms but like also boundaries from me with my female friends like if I'm spending more time with my girlfriends than am air or. Jerry. You know sacrificing date night every week to go play poker with his friends like there needs to be boundaries on those relationships too. So I think what it really comes down to his. Boundaries in general for your relationships outside of your marriage to in order to protect in prioritize your most important relationship, which is your marriage. That to.

Yet just a unique and exciting puzzle game on like any other puzzle game out there you guys have mentioned your book a couple of times. The book is for those listening a love letter life. I would love for you talk about that but I do have to say we were watching the trailer for the book. You guys I don't know what beats that was shot at Oh oh yeah. That's Rule. To Fall. Guys have never visited. It's a coast. To coast. So it's like Oregon socks don't move here. You guys are just laughing the whole time audrey hanging out the side of a frigging moving vehicle cheese and you remember that shot I was like oh my gosh this is. Her brother's shot that. You've been incredible. So maker by. Back. We'll get into the book second the back to the. Platonic relationship saying I. Think Odgen I really. Our heart behind even tell him that full story in our book we spent an entire chapter kind of really trying to address the topic because we noticed. That so many people when they get on the other side of fidelity or they go on the other side of problems in their relationship or they're falling in love. Ninety plus percent I wanNA say ninety nine percent just to be conservative ninety percent plus of them really know how it happened. It's just like how did I end up? Accidental seemingly insignificant choices built a friendship or built up decisions over the course of years, and then you find yourself in in in a fairer problems or being closer friends and in. Just you find yourself going away from your spouse because that's what you've chosen in the micro moments year after year after year after year. So are heartless just say like, Hey, if you're not consciously aware that you fall in love with those who spend the most time with like there's nothing there's no. Obligation to stay in love with your spouse. There's no obligation. There's no like required like your your heart doesn't just choose your spouse your decision to do. So we were just trying to say like, Hey, the insignificant decisions that you make do add up over time. And nobody sets out into intentionally haven't affair it's an accident it's not an accident choice but because of all the small little micro choices you may. Add Up to its little soapbox I feel like that's an. Important. Point to get across because I was our heart behind it is just like hey. Be Friends with whoever you want but like also just think about it just think about you're spending all your time with and whatnot what it could end up. To, be I, WANNA. Be Fifty five with my best friend here. Love in life because I've I've we've guard our relationship, we put boundaries and our kids, our grandkids and all that stuff like we have this vision for what we want to create, and so we're going to try to be as intentional possible without being religious about it also. That's a heart behind that man a lot. I've been feeling that a lot with I mean having a kid changes time, but especially within within a marriage where you just have less energy generally and so Shaun and I get into a conflict. There's always like that one moment where I'm going to be. All right. We're going to work through this in a healthy way. part of me wants to say now you don't like you don't have the energy for this do it and it is such a battle every single time to make myself realized that if I don't have this healthy conflict. It's a little wedge that I'm putting in our relationship so like. Again. They're healthy conflicts but like they need to be had and I need to respect Sean Hey, Andrew I didn't like how you did that I can either be like. All right. Let's talk about it or not Nari. Now I don't I don't want to. Energy so The person that like wants to talk about the conflict in process at through and who's the one that's like I need. You. Always WanNA. Talk about it I like be a dead horse I WANNA. Make sure it's solved. It's never coming up again we love each other we're gonNA cry it out. We're GONNA it out. It's going to go on way too long but I wanNA talk about it. You Oh one, thousand percent I. Tell Myself. Under a Bushel. Jeremy We joke like Jeremy Blinks forgiveness he's. Done over it. Forgiving you means I never after thinking about it again done he doesn't want to. I know that like deep down like that's. Not going to be good later. So I have to like FRY it out of him, but then also like on the flipside. When we do have a conflict I am A. I don't invite Jeremy into the conversation I demand the conversation. So I'm Lyceum we're having this conversation and I think this is one thing that's been really really helpful for us with that in our own specific marriages are mayor journal because every week we have a time that. We've invited each other to this time where like we're not emotionally charged. It's outside of the moment of conflict and we have an opportunity to address things that maybe didn't have the time to fully resolve during the week because a Gary I not or because of a lot of in kid I know I know that every week there's a set aside time where I'm going to engage in where he has to get down to. Choosing to do it too. I'm going to get because I love Audrey I inaugurated this I don't want to do it, but I will do it because I know healthy relationships on the other side. So the marriage journal, for conflict, flicked resolutions really been huge for us but. You guys have any tips on China are terrible at is are we have the conflict like the issues we've addressed it? We've discussed it how the heck do we land the plane and like get back to watching that flakes or make it a meal We always just like it's always a crash like there's. Hogs, and then it's like, okay, let's continue watching that. I don't know man if you guys. Yeah. We Yeah we? We have totally different styles of Of resolving landing, the plane I would say. That's the hard part of relationships I mean up phlegm nap breath is you have to separate people to separate styles to separate hearts, ways of communicating things that anger you things that frustrate you things that you love trying to. Live together. I mean there is no perfect way to do any of AIDS Massey and rough but. If you write your way through it. It's beautiful. I think that's like a really good perspective because. That's I. Mean. That's the whole idea is my way isn't right. Her way isn't right. I need to become less of me in in less of her as far as like selfish desire like me my way in the collision of the two. Is is of the whole idea. Okay so big question. You guys have been together during a TV show where your lives have been shown to the world. You put your lives out there on social media. You talk about it on a podcast you have had babies you have done long distance you have written books together. You've done pretty much all of it. What are? What's the. Takeaway of all of it. What's the big like relationship advice you have? Summed up all of your experiences so far, and if that's not hard enough, you can only use one single word. For. I. Got On you guys on our broadcast didn't they? got. Okay. What's one thing we've learned about our marriage throughout that? either. That's like walkie. Lofty I. I. Think I think it's really important because you guys have lived. I feel like within one relationship if someone has to overcome distance, they've overcome this massive obstacle within you know their marriage or dating you guys have gone through a lot of it. Having a relationship on a reality TV show is very difficult. Having a relationship on podcast on social media having babies getting. Married. Writing. A book. All of it is. Speaking of, babies. You hear the little guy no, he's. A Big One, this is thought. This is what is the most fresh on my brain so I'll just share it. Answering the question right. But I think one thing that Genera talk about his leg we. That that life that we've lived has presented a lot of opportunities for making decisions. And I think. How you make decisions as a couple is important and like how you make decisions together and we just like through the years of friendship relationship dating relationship like I feel like we've been presented with a lot of decisions like just. It seems like our friends joke about it were always making some massive decision. Whether it's thought something or to start something to to. Something to move or to whatever hair. Like if They're an as you feel like there's something about like. Making big decisions together because it's not just been like me making my own decisions germiness subdivisions like all those things that you just listed were decisions ultimately that we need together to either pursue a thing or stop a thing and I think like true surgery I, think that those decisions ultimately the process of making that decision has brought us closer together and there's been conflict that's come through the making of the decision but. We've learned how to make decisions together like we've gotten better at our process for making decisions over the years and it's become something that has been less conflict inducing more like. Unity Building in our relationship And it's I don't know I feel like it's just been a way that's allowed us to. See Our dreams as together dreams and like. Through the process of making decisions that align with those dreams and like aligned with the vision that we have this year. I don't know just a thought now some deep dots right there audrey. Crushed that. Jeremy Match that do. House like tried to play off I, guess good baby wrapped up. Next question. No I would just I'd go off of that and say a you know one thing audrey night are are I would say good at and we try to encourage I say that humbly but something I think large has given us is the ability to dream together really well. I have my own dreams address earned dreams, but we have like our two or three. We have our two big goals. As one hundred percent collective you know we both aspire to those two are two main goals and. That has allowed us to filter process in make decisions really collaboratively because we're chasing the same thing, you steer your eyes are. Audrey Stan, exterior STAIR odunayo staring at the same goal, we're GONNA we're, GONNA constantly be growing bumping into each other on our way to that goal. There's nothing about our two main goals that are going to drive us apart because we want the same thing are rice because it's our lives, not my life not her life I think dreaming together as a couple. Is. Something not a lot of people think about you think I want maybe a happy family or you think. Your name you're giving your for my dream but like some one person's dream has to bend and you gotta come up with something to chase for together. 'cause you used your you stare and I think that's something that's that's. Helped us do what we've done in. Yeah. So take that it's important to us. I think too important for us and maybe it's not now. Now though we're standing, we've known each other for ten years now standing ten years. Because we we first met something we bonded on is a dream was a dream together we've literally been dreaming ten years, and now we're seeing holy smokes because we were chasing the same thing like look at all the things we've been able to do and accomplish what an what an incredible story so far, and we're really excited to write the rest. Is it a finite dream that you guys I bonded over and are still chason or is it like a ambiguous like? That's a good question. Yeah. Don't have to answer what the dream is if you don't want to. One of the big to is is to own property and raise our family on farm. That's That's that's. What we that's what we WANNA do so lot of our decisions. Year one since you're one, a lot of our decisions have been. Does this first of all on our relationship with the Lord? Does it honor our relationship together and three? Does it get us closer to that goal that drink? In two years a year ago when we were. Realizing like this is too much. How do we say no to things that became a serious way we would start to say no to things not opportunities and filter out what we're really doing in realize like we don't need to achieve this dream now might achieve that in a few years and that's it slower if we're healthier on the road to it. Had just made me think of a couple things one I remember being twenty years old and looking up at like a like some of my mentors and be like, Oh my God I can't believe they know that much or have these many actions or have built all this stuff. I need to I need to do what they're doing. be where they right now. And it's like, no no. That comes with time your frigging thirty years old I'm twenty eight like. The formal com. Totally, and then the second thing is. In, regards to marriage I've been thinking about why why are couples sometimes able to make it through like Living in a trailer together like a tiny apartment and they don't have anything in their living on a small budget but didn't they get divorced when the husband sells is billion dollar company whatever and I was thinking I was like. I wonder if part of it is because. The, the the dream is they're like, oh, well, someday, we're going to be living in a house like there to be driving a car like that and when they when they're both actively chasing that it's good like it's a bonding experience and they're both on the same page but then once it's once they're there. You kind of reflect on what it took to get there as far as time and and decisions in the groups of people that you. You're now surrounded with who may or may not be healthy and it's like. Just, always get dude it's always you've got to keep it in check. You always just gotTa be yourself. Is this in line with what my priorities are which early? Yeah. You guys are setting a standard for keeping priorities. In order and keeping your family and stuff. In front of work, which is awesome. I'm sure we'll have a conversation tonight about what we need to say no to now, which is an. Encouraging in you know. Back to what you guys kind of briefly mentioned before I think the the day of Rachel Hollis situation as unfortunate as it is should be a serious. wakeup call to a lot of us in this space. So. Well. This It's been a deep. This has been like a deeper conversation. Are. They overall. Is like biggest we're always deemed like the two series weren't worth believe it or not we're like we can't trying to keep it somewhat. Above now. Are you kidding Oughta? It's N-. It's harder for us to a well, we joke about this our friends joke with us about them. Like a goofy. I. Sometimes you are. In certain elements but like. When you're having a conversation, Mike, we go deep pre. One hundred percent light I was always guy where it's like. You don't WanNa talk to Andrew if you're looking for like a light hearted. Back. Talking to him for five hours and by the end of it, you'll be questioning everything just I need therapy. But you guys are awesome. It's great to talk to you. Again.

Say Gary You. Now he's another one of those guys where it's like. Okay you say a lot of good stuff, but if you listened to him for. Two weeks you pretty much know everything. One thing he says there's lost. He says, I'm also I don't think so but. Like, the whole Hustler mentality I mean like the they really adopted that hustle mentality and hustle leads to hurt no two ways about it. Because it's unregulated. Doppler hustle mentality, your unregulated the design for rest were designed to how we enjoy pace and so if you're not resting, how can you enjoy speed of? Oh. We got a baby hair all caveat. Gary v Set I one thing. That I do enjoy, he's always harping on the journey. You've got it. Really enjoy it back to what you were saying earlier of the journeys like as like the farm, sure like we would love to have a farm one day. But if that's the ultimate goal than what you said earlier was so good once we achieve it, it's like you know well then. You can't be like the goal just has to be a goal. Or you know for the relationship but I think that's just an important point too because. You know it's the same happens with a lot of marriages with kids they kids at the goal, and then when it becomes the glue that relationship knowing the kids move out so is the relationship those out and they're stuck on you? And I think the goal has to be aligned to a deeper purpose. The golden and the like it has your goal has to have a purpose. So like you're GonNa to have kids for what purpose you're be to buy a farm. But what's the purpose? And those like is it to honor God is it to protect build your relationship and be earth is to achieve the goal which the goal had achieved. It should support the first to you know. Priori. This. Is the second half to. Pay A. Broken. After. She guys taking time out of your vacation at join us today.

EP80. Transitioning from Crib to Bed: Our Experience, with Renee Reina

"And the monroe. Welcome to the mom room podcast. My name is renee. Rina and i am definitely the mom friend you have always wanted. Welcome to the tuesday episode. I am recording this on sunday evening. My husband just went out to get chinese food. Because that's what he feels like eating dinner tonight and we just put my low down and so far so good. He is asleep in his big boy bed and that is the topic of today's episode. I just kind of wanted to give an overview of exactly how we transitioned him from his crib to his bed. Why we did it now and didn't wait until he is more like three years old dish And also like tips things that i think worked for us things that didn't work for us So yeah let's get into it. I i will say that. I have a hot topic episode with amanda juicin' and we talked all about transitioning from crib to bed. And this was before we had transitioned my low so she answered all my questions. We talked about when you should transition safety things to think about So it's a really jam packed episode full of good information. If you're thinking about transitioning your kid soon So yeah. She recommended waiting until about three years. Old so initially. I thought we would wait for as long as possible. But for us milo started to get out of his sleep sack first of all and we were putting them on backwards inside out like it didn't matter what we did he would shimmy out of them so so there was that because we wanted to keep asleep sack on him for as long as possible because that is what prevented him from being able to climb out of the crib so once he started getting out of the sleep sack and of refusing the sleep sack and it was a huge fricken tantrum. Some needs to get it on him. so yeah if he would take it off in the crib then he would start to try and climb out and it was terrifying. He would put one of his legs all the way over and we would run up stairs to go get him and i never really knew if we left him if he would actually topple over but seems to be that kids actually do that so i didn't really wanna take any chances so that you know we would have nights like that and then i would think. Oh my god. That's it like tomorrow. I'm going out. I'm getting him a bed. Like this is stupid. I would get so angry and then you know the next few nights. He wouldn't do it and he would go to sleep fine in his crib with his sleep sack so then i just kind of forgot about it and i was like okay like whoa wait. And then another night would happen where he would be up and crying and putting his leg over and refusing to wear sleep sock and refusing to get into his crib and so finally. I was like screw it. I had a day where i was able to go to ikea. And you know this was after trying to pick a bed. Which was a huge ordeal. I was looking at so many beds Did you know getting like even a queen size mattress and just putting it on the floor. We debated getting a double mattress and then ultimately. We ended up with a twin size mattress. What i was finding was every single. Cute toddler bed only came in a twin size and adult beds came in double or just like a regular bed and of course you know me i wanted a really cute bed and the beds are like you know. The loft beds order the canopy beds. I had a super cute one. Where're you could make it into a regular bed with the canape up or you could flip it upside down. And then it would be a loft bed so like they were sleeping on the top part of a bunk bed and then underneath you could make a play area so my thought was we would make it in the loft position and then just put his mattress on the floor And then when he was older week either flip it to be like a regular bed or we could like have him sleep up on the bunk bed if he wanted so we ended up getting that one and then when i set it up i noticed that it wasn't that high off the ground when it was set up as a regular bed so we kept it like that and decided to just see how it went because in my mind i was like even if he does fall out. It's not dangerous at all like that's how close it is to the ground so we decided to just set it up like a regular bed and the very first time i went to make the bed. I regretted instantly getting a canopy bed. And i wished that i just got a normal bed or just a mattress on the floor because it was so annoying to try and get the sheets on and get the comforter on and lay the pillows down and all his dinosaur pillows because of the canopy like i am almost six feet tall and to bend under those bars and try not to hit your head. Every two seconds was so annoying so after a couple of nights we ended up just taking the bar off. That makes it look cute so we got that bed for nothing. So that's my first hot tip. I know the canopy beds are really cute. But don't do it and another hot tip would be to leave them in their crib as long as possible. I have a friend whose son is over three years old and he's still in his crib and i'm so jealous because i don't know it's just it seems easier because the transition is a little bit difficult but to be honest i was expecting it to be a lot worse. And that's not to say that it can be a lot worse for other people but just for is so far. It's been pretty. Good and milo has a justed really well But yeah people always say wait as long as you can and keep them in the crab. But i understand as parents. It's like you know this milestone where they go from a crib with is where they slept since they were a baby and now they're getting older and they're gonna have their big boy bed and you can redo their room and it's just kind of like an exciting time so i understand why people are excited to do it But yeah so. The day that we transitioned him. I set up as much of the bed. As i could during the day took me forever So focused because i suck at putting together. I keep furniture. So i did what i could and then when i was going to pick up my low at daycare my husband got home early and so he finished it I had already washed all his bedding and pillows that we got. We decided to do a dinosaur theme. Because he's really into dinosaurs right now so kia like i got all the betting at kia super cute dinosaur patterns super cute dinosaur stuffed animals and what we did was. We left the crib in his bedroom. It's still in there now. Actually because we thought just in case it didn't work or he wanted to sleep in the crib. It was still there. we also. He has a tall dresser in his room. And that's where we have the monitor. It's on top of that dresser looking down at his bed so we didn't want him to obviously play with the drawers of that dresser. So what we did was put the crib up against that dresser so we could still use the top doors and we could still have the monitor up on there and also the crib is covering the electrical plugs. Wear his sound machine is plugged in and the monitor so the sound machine is up on the dresser as well because that was one of the big things i was like. What do we do with the monitor and his sound machine and now we have a little nightlight in there. So if he wants to look at books play with a little toy in his bed before he sleeps. He can see what's going on so all of that is up on the dresser and the crib is blocking the plug ins and blocking the drawers to the dresser so it just kind of works out the day that i set up his bed. I also took out any toys that i didn't want him to be able to play with overnight and took out another lower dresser that we had i got him an area rugs so that the room just felt cozier and i put the area rug right up against his bed and we also put a lock not a lock but a child safety thing on his door knob on the inside of the door. So it's one of those things where he can't turn the handle because there's like a cover on it and that like i understand well i didn't know this but apparently some people think it's wrong to basically lock that your kid in their room but i don't see it as being any different from them being a crib like they can't get out of their crib either and so now they're bed is basically their crib and the room. Is there crib. So you need to have some kind of safety measure in place especially for us because the stairs to go downstairs are right outside of his door so we know like i wouldn't sleep at night. My room is on the other side of the upstairs away from the stairs and he's right at the stairs so like i wouldn't sleep at night if i knew that he could just get up and leave his bedroom. We also put a lock thing on his closet doors so that he can open his closet really. His room is just free for him to walk around pick up his books play with a few toys that we left in there and now we always make sure that he knows where his water is in his room as well so we have a sippy cup in there for him. Okay so the first day we you know it was really exciting to show him his new room and he was so excited to see his bed and he was jumping all over it. It was super cute. He loved dinosaurs His bed that we got him as called. Cura it's for my keya k. u. r. a. I don't think they make it anymore. But apparently you can buy some second hand So yeah what we did was. We tried to. Just make it like a normal. We did our regular bedtime routine And then he was. It seemed like he was nervous to go to bed like for us to leave him in his room with him in the bed so it was sad because you know like you don't want them to feel anxious so we tried to treat it at first as though he was in his crib and just did the exact same thing like okay like good night like we'll see you tomorrow whatever And he was not happy he ran to the door. He was trying to get out. He was throwing everything on his bed floors so he was throwing like all his dinosaurs as comforter. Has everything At first okay. So i should say. At first. he wasn't crying he did all the throwing on the floor. I and we were like okay. That's fine like if he's not crying we're just gonna leave him so and then when he threw everything on the floor and then he ran to the door he was trying to get out and then i think once he realized that he couldn't get out then he started to cry so we probably went into the room four or five times like getting him settled in bed and then leaving and then you know he would get upset again and after a while it started to seem like he knew what he was doing and when i about it like he was basically doing what he did all the time in his crib but in his crib like we had established boundaries and we had a certain routine when he would try in. You know a key wanted us to take him out of his crib. Basically and you know us to take him to our room or whatever it was we would not like. We decided to make a rule one night that we were not taking him out of his crib. He was not getting out and even if we had to stand there with him for a little bit. We did not get him out of his crib. So that worked so well for us. And i started to realize that he was doing the exact same thing that he did in his crib but now we were treating it differently because he was in his bed and i felt bad like i felt like he was anxious and ensure of sleeping and a big boy bed like it makes sense but once i realized that that's what was happening and it was us that was that had changed kind of what we were doing. In these situations. I decided to let him cry a little bit. And we watch the monitor and he was out the door and he was like raging for a little while it was probably ten fifteen minutes and then he literally just out of nowhere walked over to his bed and like laid down in his bed and went to sleep so it was so strange but i think he realized like okay like i'm supposed to go to bed like this is what's happening. It's the same as what was happening. When i was in my crib so anyways that was like felt so happy that he did that and he knew to his bed and lay down. Because part of my worry was you know. Is he going to just like fall. Asleep on the floor and be upset like it just. I don't know i didn't know what to expect. So i was happy that he went to bed and fell asleep and then at three. Am that first night. He was crying for my husband. He was saying daddy daddy So my husband went in and laid down with him and actually fell asleep with him and his twin bed which is hilarious and they slept till five. Am and then. My husband's snuck out and then my low woke up normally at seven am so the first night was really stressful. And i remember regretting even setting up the bed or getting a bed like i was so stressed out and we tried to offer him to sleep in the crib like to put him in the crib to see if he was more comfortable but he refused the crib as well so the first night was an absolute nightmare and i think he probably fell asleep around ten pm But yeah from like seven thirty till ten. pm. It was really stressful on eight number. Two he this is the night that we added a nightlight so he could see his books. and again we kind of went in tonight number two with a different mentality and we decided to treat it. You know do the same thing that we were doing when he was in his crib and he would refuse sleeping He did the same thing on nate number two. He went to the door and he was. I call it raging but he was. Just you know really upset throwing a tantrum basically and i let them do that for a few minutes and then i went up super calm. Like super calm. Picked up everything that he had thrown on the floor. Just like you know gently put it back on the bed. And i was just being really soft with him. Like oh sweetie. What's wrong like do you want me to get you some books. It's time to go to sleep. Mommy's tired to mommy's gonna go sleep in her bed. And anyways i talked to him like that and he eventually calmed right down and he went up got up into his bed and i gave him some books. And then i say. Do you want mommy to get you a toy. Which toy would you like to play with in your bed. And then he picks out a toy. And i bring it to him and he wined a little bit when i left that time but he fell asleep and it was a decent night. Okay so night number. Three of course. My husband had to leave this night and that this is what happened so he again didn't want us to leave the room. It's almost like he was nervous because it was different so i stayed for a little bit. I sat on the floor. And i read him. Some books Eventually i got up and left. Just like i normally would and he raged quickly at the door and then he went back to bed and fell asleep so i was like. Oh thank god like every night. It seemed to get better and better that he would just cry for really short period of time and then get back into bed and go to sleep. So i'm thinking like yay good times and about forty five minutes. After he falsely he literally rolled right off the bed. Like i just happened to look at the monitor and it was so fast and i heard the thumping on the ceiling. Obviously but he just rolled right off the bat and i was like cringed and i was waiting for him to cry and there was no cry. Nothing it was just silent. So i went upstairs and i opened the door sube or quietly slowly and i look and he was in the child's pose like sleeping on his area rug. It was so frigging cute but it was also kinda sad like he just fell and he remained sleeping so anyways i picked him up so awkward to try and pick him up when he's in that position and i like fell into the bed trying to put him back so put them there. Put a pillow on the edge of the bed so that it would prevent him from rolling off again and he like in his sleep pushes the pillow to the side and now his legs are dangling off the bed from his knees down. So he's laying horizontal in the bed. So i'm like what the hell so i go sneak in the room again. Turn him so that his legs aren't dangling off the bed and twenty minutes later. His legs are dangling off the bed again and i was like oh my god so i put a really thick heavy pillow on the edge of the bed and put him totally vertically and then it was fine and he slept all night but of course after that night i was like oh my god researching guardrails and all these different things that we could do. And i told my husband. Like i'm flipping the bed upside down and we're putting his mattress on the floor and like this is what always happens. Something happens one night and then you freak about it but to this day it hasn't happened again. Knock on wood now. I'm sure he's gonna roll off tonight but yeah so. His bed is the same. We never ended up getting a guardrail. a lot of people say to put a pool noodle under the fitted sheet which is a good idea but so far i find putting just a pillow. There is pretty effective but we shall see so the next day what i did was. He has a massive body pillow and we have a bunch of extra pillows in the house. So i put all those pillows on the floor beside his bed and his other comforter that he has and some other stuffed animals so that if he ever did roloff it would be really comfy and he could just sleep there He actually slept on that pile of pillows on. I think it was thursday or something for his nap like his entire nap on the floor. I mean it's super comfortable. So i don't blame him but that's what we did now so instead of a guardrail or anything. We just have a bunch of pillows on the floor night. Four was not that eventful. He had a quick little cry when we left and then he slept through the night. He didn't leave his bed. He didn't go to the door or anything. When we left he just was a little bit sad when we left and then he fell right asleep night five. He cried quickly again when we left. He looked at his books for a little bit and he slept through the night so again he wasn't like when we went to go leave. He wasn't panicked running to the door when we left anymore. He was just laying there looking at his books and then would fall asleep so after those nights now what has been happening it is. Everything's been really good. We you know he always kind of refuses to go to bed. We do our nighttime routine and our bedroom and we always give him a warning to say you know after this show or after this next book. Whatever we're doing we're going to go to your room in late. You're gonna lay down and look at your books. I try not to say like you're going to go to sleep. I just say we're going to go lay down and look at your books played with your toy So that he knows that it's coming. And so i give him those warnings so that he knows and then when it's time to go sometimes he'll say like no no. I'm gonna sleep here and i say no. It's time to go to your bedroom. And i say. Do you want mommy to carry you to your room or do you want to walk. And as soon as i say that he he says always that he wants to walk. And i say okay. Let's go do you want to take that book that you have. It's so effective. Like this is the hottest hip ever. Do you want mommy to carry you to bed or do you want to walk. And for some reason he totally forgets that he doesn't wanna go to his room and he's trying to get me to let him stay in my bed and he just says ono like i'll walk. I'll walk and he gets. You know right off my bed and starts walking towards his room. It's so bizarre. So i highly recommend trying that i also when we get into his room. I say okay like hop up on your bed hop up. Do you want me to give you these books like. Do you want this book. Do you want which toy would you like to have. Do you want me to bring over your little tower or do you want this toy. And it just makes it such an easy transition and he hops up onto his bed. I give him his books or his toy. And then i say okay sweetie i love you and he says i love you mommy and then i closed the door and i mean not. Every night is going to be like this. Obviously but for the most part most nights are going that way and it's been really good and he's been sleeping through the night he's still in his pull up overnight and to be honest. I don't really have any desire to change that right now. Because he doesn't have access to a bathroom So yeah we'll see what happens with that. He's usually dry when he wakes up. And then we get him to go on the potty but if he does sleep in longer than usual then sometimes he'll have a p in his pull up But yeah that's where we're at with that so yeah quickly some tips. Do not get a canopy bed. Do not get a loft bed. Do not get a bunk bed if you can. I would suggest having a little night light in their room so that if they do have books which books and some toys that they comply with overnight. I highly recommend as well I would yeah so books. Toys nightlight have water in the room. Kleenex because also what i find is if they're having some really difficult night than there crying and you go into their room you wanna make sure that they have everything in the room like you can go and close the door behind you. Offer them. Water give like wipe their nose with a kleenex. Give them a souder. He still hasn't su there. We need to get rid of that soon but we thought one thing at a time so we did the bed. I i would try and avoid. I know the first night my husband laid down with him at three. Am and it didn't seem to affect and i find. Milos been like that just in general. If we do something he never really goes on to expect it the next day so like i know some people say like oh my god. Don't lay down with them. You're going to be doing it all the time and we just don't find that with milo. So far he doesn't like sleeping with us He does though. I found once we switched him to his bed. He was asking us to lay down with him which he had never really done before But yeah my husband did that one time. And then since then we haven't and he hasn't really made a fuss about it. So i would recommend trying to stay away for months that it doesn't become a habit if that's something that you don't want to do. I know some people enjoy falling asleep with their kids or you know putting them to bed waiting till they fall asleep. And if you do that fine for me like i cannot wait to get downstairs and watch reality. Tv and eat chips. So that's that's where. I'm coming from but yeah so. That was our journey with transitioning him into a bed. I know some people have a much more difficult time. Transitioning and the kids are out of the room constantly or the kids. Don't want the door being closed and we just didn't have those issues. He has always slept with his door being closed. So i don't even think he thought anything of that so that was lucky for us but i was really expecting him to be up a million times a night. Because that's what i have heard from other people. But i think because we closed the door and he thinks of it the same way as when he was in his crib like he can't get out and this is bedtime and he has been pretty good at. Oh my god. He's like hanging off the bed. Oh my god. I'm watching the monitor. He's coughing homemade well. I better wrap this up So yeah that was our transition. I knew it. I knew because i said that he had. It rolled off before that something was gonna happen. And now he's fricken head is dangling off the side of the bed i do. This is going to happen anyways. I better go.

13. Gene Key - From Discord to Empathy

"Awfully welcome to beyond reality podcast. I'm dominic porsche. You podcast and today. I featured together with you. The teens chinky which is listening through love and this is the shadow of discord gift of discernment and the city of empathy. And this is from the chinky approach from chinky teaching by richard rat. It's really beautiful like this division in shadow gift and city and today we go in this trinity listening s- roloff always quote on ring which is kind of like a chemistry chemically pathway and activation. Through what in a and here it's The cullin ring of purification and in this ring of purification besides the thirteenth chinky there is also the saudis chinky which is at the highest level rupture and the lowest level. It's like the shadow of the cya and then like light at the gift level and so they have a relationship Between each other when we are in discernment when we are bit outside us and at the same time also with in another dan we also have to slightness. We are kind of detached from from the identities and conditions of mind. This chinky has a programming partner number. Chinky which is a division guidance in vietnam. And i already made this transmission. You can have a listen to that. And so they also have a relationship when we and discord It meets division when we are into men it meets guidance and vietnamese embassy and this chinky is all about different dimensions of listening. So as always i go into shadow i and we have a check. What kind of listening are we doing there. And it's the chemistry of pessimism and the website of chinky is it's written. Discord is the entropy of desire. So we kind long for something days in a longing and it's completely unconscious longing in a way that we are not aware of it. We do not have to self awareness. That's what is entropy s and this is the trip of hearing. We hear something from a person however we are not listening we do not really here and listen to what they are saying with just reputa- around in our own conditioning and belief. We think what they tell is what we identify with us at the same time. It's kind of false listening. It's like this chemistry of pessimism and he and his shadow we we do not listen and learn from our past. It's a false processing of the past and ask. The programming partner does sorties chinky of the and the shadow frequency. Also shows this disavowed. Raw force of that overshadows the ability to listen to our past and to change that is also a from chinky spoken. It's written beautifully. And the following is a minic lord from the chinky. We hear the discord that we are creating. but we do not listen to it. So we are only listening to our short-term agendas like from all perspectives of lives. Maybe it can be even a again though of i want to feel. I want to fill myself. And then i check my snack box and get my chocolate. And then it's like this short-term again. Though i feel better i have my f- my coffee. That's kind of like my short-term mini again thus and yeah and long-term when those short term mini agendas get too much it has an outside effect of maybe not being present anymore in the moment and also Having more wait wait. Because like of eating too unhealthy that could be example of short-term again does and we are not listening to us and they're always to states which is the repressive nature the introverted and the reactive nature extroverted and the repressive nature. The internalized is here permissive. Those are the people that pretend to be a pathetic unsympathetic to address. Whilst at the same time they do nothing they have no real backbone and then we have to narrow mind at which the reactive nature and those people always with you no matter what you say. They are filled with pessimism and detailed. Actually i do not believe that example. Let's make an good example for today. We have denies when. I'm already at food at this episode. Let stay where. The food belongs in our bellies. No kidding so let's talk about this like vegetarianism and veganism. And then they are like the people that still eat meat and so there's also like this from both perspectives stale like people that are weakens and they disagree was all the people that still eat meat they say like all it creates too much Problems on the earth's like we need to use too much water for feeding the animals to get killed and then to get eaten and all of this narrow-mindedness where like people really disagree with people. That still eat meat and at the same time than they are like people that eat meat a salem area but we need meat If you are weaken maybe you cannot get like exactly the proteins for you. You cannot stay healthy. You need me to stay healthy. And so there's like this. Both sides of narrow mindedness so it can be really in all aspects of life and so we cannot say it's just one sided it's always to side and when we can see it from that then We have discernment in the gift. And that's where we go. It's the fellowship of men and the website. It's written discernment is fresh lightness. It's a listening from our whole being and we listen and learn from our past. It's kinda deep down in our belly. We have this emotional awareness and deep pressing or pressing prison. Pedants and so. We are aware of our desires of other people desires. Maybe we cannot still stop them. Like i talk about chocolate and some other things i know The like that or even like sexual ziya openly speaking. This is a big challenge of chest really a lot of people also because we got conditioned in so crazy patterns so all of those are sayas. Maybe some of them we are wear off and we can handle them and some others. We still have a challenge to handle them and those are those can be those two cy us so we have fitness ing awareness. And we also know what they do to us. We know that they are hurtful to us. And still sometimes we are falling into the trap to do it and to to have activities in those sayas while eating or sexual lust and so all of those things can emerge in this chinky. It's very deep chinky. Also a sexual attraction chinky and this chinky is also about demystifying about on past. And when we i as gift in this higher frequencies. It's the solar plexus awareness emotional awareness deep down from our belly and we have this optimism of life. Dexter change here. We are optimistic about life. When the shadow of discord we are pessimistic about life. And it's funny. What happens when we optimistic. Whistle live like we are not just seeing the science and symbols of life will lift them and this leads to such optimism that the signs and symbols that come up in life we lift them and because of them we have. I create optimism. So let's go. To the city of empathy the create cosmic hop on the website. It's written empathy is to purity of rupture. I have a small extracts from the book this time for this city. It's like a rector shot of got itself. Dna forms living by parading linked to the beginning of life on the planet. Even more profoundly connects us to the seed from which our very universe i sprouted. It is rude. Certain city that information from our collective past can be recovered so steeply related to recovering collective memories of the past and heal them like in the beyond duality. I came up with this voting Healing our history like he history healing our history. And that's what this is also all about and we have a challenge about avert empathy. Because we have kind of an overuse of the word and we use it a lot from the minds perspective and we kind like mean. It's more like sympathy and not empathy. And there's a big difference between sympathy and empathy because true embassy has nothing whatsoever to do western mind and sympathy. It's like feeling was another person. We can kind of feel them. Say like i had like some similar situations. I know how to feel how they might feel like From the experiences we live an empathy is really be that other person and that is a totally different level so it is same time to be other also means that this is the deaths of our separate itself we die. This is the dying of our separate itself. If cannot be different because when we added other person to beat the person we have to let go to separate itself and those people are like this. Most powerful shamans that can guide people through the art of listening and so people are healed. I found his Chinky mexico and out also like a short mini story about this. I know a person that came into my life. That helped me a little bit west translating and helped me with yeah with some translations in english of of my i Articles and also of some some content. That i did for my pdf on my beyond reality o'clock and this person has this certain as a life's work and i was fascinated. That person is able to. What i'm writing purely is able to translate with such a clarity because somehow does person while reading my words that person was able to be me and to transmit what i want to tell even with more clarity and this is how this works like this states of discernment and embassy and it's also very fascinating because maybe such a person can do this while reading someone else's verts and understanding what exactly the person wants to express and the same time maybe when that person meets another person Life maybe debts hard for them to beat it at a person because there needs to be two separate nece. Dan not able to beat it on a person that closely. It's also like hot from our conditioning. So there are so many levels of Despite being not a person and of empathy so it's not just being the other person when we see another person on wet or windy. Tell us something. It can be also through a written words or two language to music. We can become obedient other person at the moment. Someone expresses something. And this is the state of empathy. Maybe that's why we also attracted to art and music and in a lot of other things like movies Very touching movies where we somehow come and beat it at a person for a short period of time and we have this embassy for that person so that some food for sorts if we ended the episode with the topic of food while i also had it in the shadow of chocolate and other kinds of food points so thanks a lot for listening to this episode always feel free to visit my block beyond relative dot com. It's always with one d. It's a melting together not to.

The Power of People: Why Philanthropy Requires More Than Money

"This is dollars and change a podcast about the intersection of business. And social impact brought to you by the wharton social impact initiative. Welcome two dollars and change. I'm katherine klein. I'm the vice dean for social impact at wharton. And i'm excited today to be speaking with bridget. Hoyer link who is the director of product impact at google dot org visit. Thanks for joining us. Thanks so much for having me tavern fantastic. So let's start at the top. What is google dot org. Many of us know google. Some of us don't know google dot org absolutely so google dot org is google's phone And charitable arm was founded in two thousand five been around for quite a while actually as part of the original. ipo letter. That alan google went and we really work by supporting nonprofits and other social sector organizations around the world who are addressing to most critical challenges and we work to bring the resources that will has a across the boards that commission so we of course have -unding as part of that we give about two hundred million dollars in grant funding every year. We also try to really bring in what we can uniquely offer so thinking about technology as a core focus but also our google earth our employees who have a range of expertise obviously many technical but many other functions as volume really think about how we can leverage their time and capabilities will be addressing the problems that we have in partnership with these nonprofit organizations who are working on the front lines of these issues. Dan and day out great. Can you talk a little bit about what's distinctive about that org when you look at the world of corporate philanthropy and corporate stations. Obviously lots of businesses do not have foundations and might say well. That's good for google but we can't do this though. Scituate google dot work in this landscape. You leaders innovative without you. So i think what is really a distinctive about us is that we're bringing the core mission and core values that google has company. Do our philanthropic pursuits though. We have a really strong focus on technology on innovation. And you get really interested in new models that are cropping up in at the nonprofit sector and how we can support them potentially earlier on we also of course are about how technology really a force for positive change in our society. How can we be leveraging the same advantages and advances that technology's offering or commercial businesses and in our day-to-day lives consumers. How come we related bringing same benefits at to the nonprofit sector to organizations who are working on most pressing social environmental challenges. I think we really try to do that. Across the board. One of the things that i think is really leading in is in ways that were bring our employees into that work there. We have an offering in particular that is called the google dot org fellowship where we bring chains of a goalers fulltime condom for up to six months to work side by side with profits that were also finding do often deliver Technical projects while also building organization's capacity to continue doing that work on the teams roloff. And these are not you know. Small teams are easily on five. Seven impediment teams Doesn't folks often the full suite of product that we would have at google also product manager software engineers user experience designers. Everything that we think we would need to deliver something as a company for china. Bring that same type of team organizations. That were working with to these nonprofits and i think that I really believe is a is a leading example of what can be done with talent. And i would say for smaller. Organizations may be who don't have the dollars On into the mix that we might have as a company thinking about employee time as a really valuable resource particularly for organizations Who might not have access to that you. We're a technology company so we really think about. How can we unlock those technical resources. But similarly marketing resources human resources at acidy all of these things. We know our areas in the sector where. I'm thinking about transferring that knowledge transferring capacity could be critical to long term success rate. Before we dig into a few specifics. I just want to a little bit about your funding which i understand is linked tied to google's prophets. How does how does this work. What is your funding. come from how much. What's the formula. So when google went public as i mentioned we were founded as part. I and the company committed one percent of equity on which was just put into the foundation's initial offending and an ongoing commitment of one percent of non profits and google dot. Org is one of the primary recipients can of that one percent finding which as i mentioned you know funds that grant budget that i that i spoke about two hundred million dollars per year. So we're thinking about that as an annual investment that we're making as a company really making good on his commitment that started you know in the coordinator of the company right in our core founding letter to really continue to invest in projects Enterprises that have strong social impact. Great okay so. Let's talk about some of those technology projects my understanding. Is you have an ai. Artificial intelligence impact challenge where you were inviting nonprofits to burke apply for for your program so what what was the i- impact challenge To work we ran the impact challenge a couple of years ago now and it was really acknowledging as i mentioned right advances that we're seeing technology across the board on especially in artificial intelligence and machine learning and really thinking about. How can we help support organizations that are interested in applying technology but not how the funding because we know that often Other funders might not feel. They have the capacity to evaluate those ideas or it organizations might not be able to st grant proposal opportunities out there to get those ideas in reality but also how can we be supporting them right with the technical expertise that i also mentioned the we put out a twenty five million dollars. Find an an open. Call globally or ideas coming from nonprofits but also universities some social enterprises to really see what was out there and frankly at the time i think we. It's now hard to even. Look back. And remember at the hype. Cycle was a little bit high at the time. We weren't sure exactly what we will find. It wasn't as common. I think to the even talking about applications in the social sector even just as couple of years ago we had twenty six hundred applications from one hundred nine nineteen countries which was much more substantial than we had expected evidently posed a bit of a challenge for the review process. We were lucky enough to be able to again letters experts within the company so we had over three hundred different technical folks volunteering their time to help us. Sort through those and really. Don't give advice on whether this proposal is feasible from a technical standpoint and then obviously we're looking at them in order to sort through those that would have the most impact so we it twenty organizations out of that pool and provided them obviously with with funding but also expertise. We ran an accelerator for nine months. Each of them was paired with an. Ai coach an expert from company and a number also received fellowships as i mentioned full time capacity and excited to be checking all their progress in seeing release humming tremendous impact across the board Extraordinary extraordinary number of applicants the with with what over one hundred one Applicants are over a hundred african-style everyone funded project. These are exciting. Impressive projects though Tell us about one or two of these projects that give us a sense of. I think both the potential for a and a google's involves ranging across the board so we had things in the environmental space for example timing carbon tracker using image processing models to identify a power plant emissions around the world which will hopefully be helpful for checking missions In many other sectors is while everything from to you know organization in india but bonnie is supporting small arms tried to understand pests that are coming into their cotton crops and therefore be able to apply the appropriate response in a way that both minimizes over a pesticide use while still i'm speaking their crops and their yield much higher one example that i think has been really particularly powerful has been with an organization here in the us. Call the trevor project. They work to provide crisis counseling services to lgbtq youth. I'm primarily through text in web and a crisis hotline and some may know but always bears repeating that the lgbtq us suicide challenge in our country is tremendous so it's estimated at one point two million youth seriously suicide every year and we know that this is a problem. That's been getting worse with covid is you are often being asked to shelter in place in eventually an unsupportive environment being cut off from their communities. So we've seen unfortunately in the need for the services. The trevor project got initially at grant from us of one point. Five million dollars and then also had a team of google dot. Org fellows fulltime team working with them to do achieve optimization problems so they were looking to think to figure out how they could best ensure that as almost coming into their at crisis q. They were able to identify which of those individuals might be at highest risk. I needed to talk to a counselor quite quickly. And which of them you know. Maybe could wait if there was a higher demand than supply at moment. And so on they're using. Ai do semantic analysis of that incoming shot and you know sort them based on on urgency. so it's just make sure. I'm understanding it in our listeners. Understanding so you have a houston distress. Who are texting in calling. And saying i need to talk to someone and the question is who should get who should get a counselor. I who should get online or phone attention. I and Is it first. come first serve. is it some. Is there some indicator in what it out in. Hell people are presenting themselves. That's going to allow the trevor project to know we. These kids are most at risk. And that's where they they. I is coming in. That's right so looking at that. That initial chat language. Achy words in the initial outreach from that young person and then using natural language processing Understand that even a sentiment may be behind some of those for so that it's not just you know. Does it say suicide because there might be a lot of other things that maybe someone saying that word specifically but otherwise might be indicating imminent harm or imminent risk to their themselves. So i'm learning from these examples in building an model to be able to do that optimization. halas effected the the trevor project in a sense of making a difference for them house. Today house on started to roll these models our and our sting an indication a in an early test that the model is performing well which is great. And then the thing. We're excited about now. We're in a second project with them as well. So i'm invested additional funding and also have fellowship team working on the other side of this problem on the supply side. So as we now add. They're also recruiting counselors during especially a time where they used to remote or these two in person training but ninety two between training in a remote format in the middle of the pandemic they are have been working on a conversation simulator to be able to train counselors in response and so this is not yet deployed in its early but that is the next of effort that we're working on them within trying to think about how you can get more counselors while were also still triaging acute and make sure that the folks that get there get into that. Queue are service quickly. And i can imagine a lot of google irs. Let your employees who would be interested in this kind of project out of they apply had to pick who gets to who gets to has to or kinda project like this. Yes so they do apply so we will work in partnership with that organization in this case trevor to the scope of projects and specifically scope out which rolls we also think which functions will be most affected fulfilling out at team. Sometimes i it depends on the resources that the organization has often of course also informed by the needs of that project itself and then will put a posting internally him and folks are able to apply for that and sometimes it's quite competitive. Were also lucky that if it works out we are able to often send a bigger team. Though in the case of trevor we actually had a number of fellows with the team and that was due to seeing a lot of interest from bush really wanted to work on. This particular challenge has the pandemic affected. Your work is google dot org doing more projects different kinds of projects. Yeah so we has a did everyone. This year had to pivot our work substantially over the course of of this year and really have made a concerted effort to be responding directly to the pandemic and a needs presented though briefly as a funder know we tried to reach out to market cheese and offer them flexibility. More than anything to you. Don't want things like reporting but also just even in funds if it was necessary to just acknowledge the situation that we find ourselves in. We've committed one hundred million dollars of our budget this year specifically to covid nineteen response at some point. Most of what we're doing think actually ended up being quite relevant as this has continued and not work has been across economic relief from recovery working on health and science and health equity Working to address the needs around distance learning really handle all of that and we brought in some of that data focus in that in health work in particular reporting on data that we know is critical understanding the virus in its effects and then have also done a lot of work arounds on economic relief and recovery mentioned specifically some work that we've been really proud of around cash in transfers including work with directly. Yes so look to talk about that. Too gift around. The is an interesting organization and interesting strategy for listeners. Who don't know what this means. What is give directly. Give directly is a nonprofit organization who essentially uh through electronic transfer gives cash directly to low income families. There were started in africa and they've been experimenting more recently with some models here in the. Us vol including newer. That started during copa that we were excited to support. We've been a supporter of theirs since the early days of their founding and have given a number of different grants started with support of course for their work in east africa at where they were doing direct cash transfers using mobile money and have expanded our support as they've been thinking about how they can respond in the covid pandemic so we've done work with them to provide cash assistance to families who are kind of near rb who will locations across the us and that effort you know just from the google cited response from others as well but we raised twenty million from google irs from our funding ask dot or from other foundations public but these campaigns in all cities around the us. And what's the response to concerns that. Wait a minute. If we give directly to people in need the skeptic may think well how do i know where they're going to spend the money and can we trust these people and i think a drink started smoke this money. What's the logic forgiving directly. Yeah it's a great question. I think You know one thing that i think is really powerful about cash. Is it really asks us to re frame the way that we think about the right answer for supporting people who are in need and frankly we don't ask those questions at alive other people in our society. We don't make assumptions that they might spend money in the wrong ways. There's really something. I think with cash to digest that people do actually know what their needs are. They know what their goals are and they probably have actually maybe off in many cases the most efficient way to achieve those goals. It's not true necessarily for many things that are more of a public good. You know setting up the school for example something that you don't maybe need some more infrastructure on it if someone's goal is learning but if someone's you know looking to grow their income whether they want to go and buy a cow or fancy field or you know invest in small business. Those are things that they're most likely In the best position to decide. And i think there's something really powerful about shifting the paradigm and digesting that people actually do know what they need and in crisis situations. I think it's even more important right in this moment of a pandemic or frankly many of the things that we've sort known to were breaking now so really trusting people and offering them the opportunity to use that money for a need These sort of drinking and smoking point. They're actually a lot of studies. Cash also one of the most studied interventions in the social sector. And if you're interested can check out many of these studies post-rally give directly website and is very little evidence in that that there's much of use right that the people are spending money on on drinking or asking and rather i think i think most of the studies that are there. Show almost zero effect on spending. In that instance they do show impact on earnings and assets even increased spending on nutrition and food though really some indication that people in fact you can be trusted and do nothing right. Yeah i've seen these studies in their very impressive and at there are a number of randomized controlled trials around the world to show. There is giving cash actually is probably the best strategy. We says it very thought provoking and important to recognize on so we need to wrap up. But i wonder what advice you would give Let's focus on individuals. I mean i. I sit at warton undergrads. I teach mba students. I teach doctoral students and fair number. Who look at your job and say oh man. I want that i can work at google and do it. Oh my positive socialists. What's your advice to people. About how the heck to use their purpose and passion in their work and for us to get to a job like yours. I think two things have really helped me and my day-to-day work. One of them is i. I always say that it's quite helpful to get experience working in close to the issues working in an organization. That's actually doing this today on nonprofit thinking about what it looks like to work in government to be kind of in the position that were folks are having to make some hard decisions i also benefited from an opportunity were across sectors so i am engineer by training. I worked in an ngo at a nonprofit. I've worked in a federal governments. I went to business school. I worked in strategy consulting in foundation. And i i think actually this job really brings together a lot of my experiences in a way that i would never have imagined when i left engineering school many years ago so i think that that ability to work across sectors and to understand what are the hard decisions that someone has to make in wine nonprofit or the hard decision that someone has to make our work against in the federal government physician. What is it like to be the big company right. And so i think that diversity experience has been helpful to me and i think a lot of these kind of corporate social responsibility Jobs benefit from having some of that diverse perspective in experience makes total sense to me. Thank you it's it's great advice in it suggests there's there's there may not be linear pass to to putting together a career impact but i think that when individuals are simultaneously committed to impact in committed to learning and gathering experience does important stepping stones. Did hope you get where you have arrived and may be good advice for for students and others along the way as well so thank you so much for being with us thank you for chatting into any fascinating to hear would would google is doing fascinating to hear about trevor project and others in fascinating to have this reminder of the power of well. Actually you've talked the beth Power technology the power of cash giving directly so so thank you so much for having catherine really appreciate the chance to chat with your great. Thank you dollars. And change is brought to you. By the warden. Social impact initiative to learn more visit us at social impact dot wharton dot u. penn dot edu.

One get ready to shake things up. Here's Caitlyn narrative on Dokes. I didn't have in the studio with me today. They need no introduction. Jeremy and Audrey Roloff. You guys were on TLC for years and years years and years former co stars they just realized their new book a love letter life like a love letter life. Yes. And and also newish parents yes to a beautiful girl and nineteen months old so cute what a fun age too. Because I like she's probably just starting like, you know, that would've shit. What's her new thing? What does she do? She got her anything. I miss her. So Moshi starting this. Like she's starting to like find words explore vocabulary. She loves the slide like we'd go to park house, LA, and she loves going down the slide. Really? Yeah. Excuse me, one of her favorite things. But she's we'll get you to show me all the videos and photos after 'cause dogs and babies, you know. You know, never thought we would be those parents until you are those parents. Oh, I know. I was never a baby person though, before I had my really I was never that person. That was like let me be. I am. And then now I'm like just obsessed with my own. Yeah. I get that. I'm a crazy like if there's a lady on my plane the other day, and she was like trying to do something. I'm like, I can only. She's like, no, I got it. I'm like, no, let me. Maybe. I'm crazy. I'm like baby craze Evelyn babies for like like five years now. That's fun. I feel like I just jinxed myself before we went on. No, no, not that. I said, I can't lose my voice. I feel like my voice is like like, I'm like, oh, wait am I getting scratchy throat? We need to. Yeah. Idea we need to celebrate and do cheers. Yes. Thirty did. Because I saw you lock it in with your cute little trae locked arm. Cheers. Cheers. Tell us. We're currently number three on all books on Amazon. Thank you. Now, I'm should be. We found that out. We should be free out. I found that I literally before we walked in the studio here. So we're in the parking lot. It's partly why would probably find the place. Definitely need to cheer. I don't really like this. And I'm so sorry is it. Yeah. It's great. And I have a hair my mouth. How long were you guys on the show reminding little people big world, right? Yeah. A little bit world. So just the quick sparks notes. TLC producers came to our family like fifteen years ago. And they were like, hey, you guys are interesting. This is kind of post writers strike of L A or whatever. So everyone needed something to film. There's a whole back story to it. But anyways, we were one of those families those a long long time ago, and we've been filming ever since we actually just got the Guinness Book world record for most episodes ever filmed by a family. Why I don't know. Cast by single cast. Not like contestant shows. Obviously, I think the bachelor Jack is the same family the same council over twelve when it started twelve we how do you now twenty nine so holy. Yeah. So it's been a long time. And so. Two years ago, though, actually when we got married I started having a stirring in my heart of like, okay, fifteen years like this is a long time to do. Have you done anything for fifteen years and Franklin? So now, I guess you can't get tired of. Still going strong try not going anywhere either. But I get what I'm saying that. Yeah. It's like oh man involved. It went from like what we did on the farm and stuff to like our relationships and for us. It was for me personally. It's just like, okay. Maybe it's time to go do something else. And so we decided to do that two years ago. So we jumped ship and started chasing a lot of other passions and business ventures one of those being writing. So. Yeah, just came out. Our first traditionally published book, and it's been a ball yet. Tell me all about this book. Because obviously, I'm going to read it. But I want to know I like is it about your experiences about meeting each other's at all those things mixed into one. It is. So it's mostly our story and kind of like our journey. We sorta it's like this is us at so kind of flashes forward and backwards in time. We're look sounds like it's mostly the story of the day we met until our wedding. But then it kind of flashes forward into our marriage in back a little bit. And basically, we tell bunch of different stories that all kind of like point to how you can be more. More intentional and more faithful in your relationships. So where we believe that wherever people are out in their love stories. They can be intentional creative and faithful whether you're even if you're single preparing for your own love story or your dating or you're engaged or married. And so we kind of tell out of stories that hopefully, inspire and equip people to press into those things and love letters is be a love letter life because Jeremy wrote me love letters because we did three years long distance so years. Yes. How wait one listen together? Total nineties, oh, well managing relations. That's amazing. You guys did long distance for three actually are in tired dated long distance or entire official dating relationship with all long distance. So when I again, it's it's actually quite a while story. But. When I asked her to date me that was ten days before I left for Santa Barbara for college. And so then we were separated by nine hundred miles for those three years. I would always come back to film, and so that's kind of where filming came in. But they never filmed any of our datings. No, no, really filming Jeremy at that time too. Because I was at school was gone, and you know, our wedding Audrey jokes in the book. Like, we had a big decision to make sure we invite two hundred people or two million people to our wedding. And anyways, we ended up filming it and that kind of gained a lot of attention. Yeah. I think it's still the most watched episode on the show and so this book. Yeah, they do. Yeah. And so anyways, that's kind of part of inspiration behind writing the book is a to tell the rest of the story. And then also we just believe marriages and relationships have immense power to not just influence your personal life, but culture at large. We're all like living, these beautiful awesome. Love stories. One of the big themes in the book is like are. We are you rather living. The love story that you would want back to you one day. I am now. Yeah. I am now. And now it's like if we all just kind of woke up with that question. You know, it would probably compel us to do the, you know, take the road, less traveled. If you will, you know, and and really pursue something meaningful. But it might not be the obvious easy road. Right. Kinda like letters often inconvenient takes patience. No, delete key slow, right? All of those are qualities healthy relationships. That's beautiful. All right. So I'm lucky enough to live in a nice neighborhood where bad stuff almost never happens. But a while ago, I kept having packages stolen, right off my porch. And it wasn't like people were breaking into my house or anything. But it was really frustrating. And a little scary to be honest to think that sketchy people were out my door. So ended up getting a PO box. Now, I don't want anyone else to feel that way. Because it feels good to fear less, especially at home. And that's why I'm excited to tell you about simply safe. It's a home security system. Most companies make home security so complicated. Simplisafe makes it easy order today. And within a week, you'll get everything you need to protect your home twenty four seven doorbell cameras. So you can see who comes near your door entry sensors to stop people from breaking in motion sensors and more, and I'm not the only one who thinks it's great simply safe is the top choice security system for C net. PC Meg and more than three million people to just go to SimpliSafe dot com slash vine to order today. That's. S I M P L I safe dot com slash fine. You made that a thing for three years. He wrote love letters that is so romantic love that because you know, there's that thing that we like to call the honeymoon phase. Right. And so if you continue that after the honeymoon phase. Phasing you're still writing letters after three years like that shows your commitment and your passion, and it shows that you have good writing skills. We should write a book. Keep these love letters or they in there. So we have we have some of them in there. I think Jerry's first letter to me we actually put in the book because it's just it's crazy. But and then we like, I think there's a couple of poems. He wrote me in there, and we still write letters. So we write every year and a handwritten. Yes. So every year in our anniversary, we write each other a letter that we seal and then read the following year anniversary. So like, it's kind of like an. Please. Anyway, everyone likes steal it because it's so fun because you open it up, and it's almost kind of like reminiscent of the past year. And there's a lot of things that will right in the letters that are sort of like it recall that happen this year. It's really. Val in a way. Imagine what your guys vows were like. Yeah. Oh my gosh. I'm going to have to go watch this episode, right? Are you happy? You did it on TV. Yes. We it was overall. It was a good experience. Or we really challenging. I mean, I've, you know, I've had think about that kind of thing when I was engaged before from the show and having to think about do I want it same thing. And right all these people in just have a small wedding. But at the end of the day. I mean, I think people always go with what they think is the right choice in they're always happy with it. And and that was something I always thought about was was doing them. What do you think you would have done? I think I would have do you think you would now? Like, I don't know. I went back and forth. It was just it's kind of hard because. You know, people kind of saw did you relationship end up obviously ever being on the show like they filmed, the whole engagement, my way, dress shopping all that was film. So it was like people kind of get connected to that. And where I think I would have considered it before because I got engaged on the show and people kinda were with us from the start when we first met. Yeah. And they kinda grew with us. And then after just kind of want to continue on that journey with us, and we shared everything on social media anyways. So I was like, you know, that'd be nice to kind of invite them into it, somehow total. But now, I'm not sure if I would. But again, I don't rule it out. Right. Interesting thing out. Yeah. Trusting, yeah. But you guys also have a podcast. Yes. And so fun. Yeah. Is this miss the TV world at all? Or are you loving doing your own like now 'cause you're kind of now fearing your own chip where you get to, you know, have your own creative control and able to do the things. That you wanna do and talk about an and you can say you've done the other thing too. It probably gave you so much experience in a lot to talk about. And now appreciate what you do even more. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely jerkin speak to that better. Because he is on the show people ask me like would you like did you like doing the show, and I think I can sum it up in a sentence? Not as if I was asked to do if I would do it all over again. I would say us. Yeah. And that pretty much sums up my experience. It was awesome. Given us so much opportunity so much platform. I have nothing against the show at all it just back to what we said. Previously fifteen years later, or whatever it was thirteen years. It's like you just get to a point where you're like. Okay. Time to go do something else that was us. And we we decided that's a long time. Totally an and we decided to take the tools we were given and provide it and just say, okay, babe. Let's go chasing dreams. Yeah. Let's team up and do something fun together. And we love working together. So. Yeah, the podcast, which is crazy. Why why why why why? Just I don't know couples working together as usually like really challenging and can cause some problems. But I think you guys, obviously like how how do you navigate that of with working together and stain like on the same page. I'll let you speak into this. I just want to say one thing I think, and we talk a lot about this in our book, and one thing that really really helped us was seeing our differences as the gifts the other person brings to the to the relationships like a union and your grandma Granville. Yes, I'm three are you three? Yeah. So I'm a nine she's an eight in new Graham talk. That's like fire. Nice. They literally call us fire and ice like when you read the description. It's like we see that here say again what you are. So I'm I would be a nine. Okay. The peacemaker of the peace make I'm an eight which is the challenger okay aids. And threes have a lot of similarities yet actually as females. Okay. However, like Odgen I like we can easily clash, and let's just say there can be some heated fellowship. I like that. And I mean, that's pretty normal. It's pretty normal for sure totally totally normal. But like, there's also a perspective shift. We do our best to like embrace, and there's many many ways we do this or whatever. But like, I can tend to get really lazy and Audrey brings this ferocity for us. What am I turn? Well. Around like, a good ten where you know. What if you corrected yourself? I would have been like. Yep. Yeah. I do the same thing all the time. So she brings us like this. This zeal this intensity. And then, but also she doesn't know how to calm down. So I can bring a sense of like, hey, it's time to. Right. Right. Time to open a ball wine. Right. That's right. And so anyways, the pairings been really well as we've pursued these work ventures and and worked together and stuff. So it's been. Find the balance in that. Because isn't there the whole thing with any Graham that there's an impaired way of thinking as your number, and then there's a healthy way of thinking. So if you can both be in your healthy mindset of thinking what you are. Then that can like, you know, really bring out the best in each other. Where I was my my it's so weird to say x now, I don't know why my last relationship, it's XI's negative. I in my last relationship we were both threes, and we could get competitive. And now trying to think what Jason is would what does the eight. Again, the challenger feel like that's that would be him. Do you know all the numbers? Could you tell me what to say is seven isn't busiest? They're like the in. No, that's yeah. Sorry. That's what he is enthusiasts for. Sure. Yeah. Funny. Seven zero seven three that's a that's a fun. Evan is my wing. So like, I go to seven, okay. That's my de-stress is like I need to have fun and what's a two twos. The helper. I that's what I wing to. Yeah. Four is. What's the what's for? They're like the ones they have this deep need and desire to be unique. Yeah, they forced labor. But all of them yet. We'll everyone like healthy as healthy humans be pulled him every number. But. But nines are the ones that like kind of identify supposedly the most with us. You all nines or the crown of the negro? It does not mean, they're better. Never they just like for like shit. Actually means nines have the hardest time choosing identity for themselves because they tend to attach themselves to the other any identity of any number that they find themselves associating with like I can get along with five really well because I pull off the five energy same with the seven anyways. So it's so interesting. I I do wanna have like some sort of any Gramlich specialist on the Pali through all the numbers yet. Chris Hewitt's on an Krahn is really good too. He wrote the road back to you. That's kind of like the popular book that blow, but Chris you're it's row sacred sacred any garment he's like he studied under Mother Teresa in the foul years of her life. And why is like geek on? Yeah. Oh what they're both killer. Where do they live? They would we've had him on. But that he did. Yeah. Yeah. We do ours. Really interesting. There is I don't remember the guy's name. But he wrote a song for each number. Yeah. Is that one of those old? No are yes. He's part of it. Yeah. Part of that podcast. I was like crying and laughing in the car anti like song about the three. I was like. To my soul. That's crazy. If you guys always wanted to write like that. Always that's clearly been in something that you're passionate about if you started with the the letters like, so my I would say my writing came out of a necessity to right. Like, I just you know, I forget who said it. But like I couldn't help. But right. And it was a lie wrote on poetry to Audrey and Bubba whole thing. But like Audrey really really truly all he has always loved to write for me. It's it's an exercise. Like, I've got a I either have to feel it like this burning like, wow, I'm in love. I'm going right, right. Or like, I'm going to do some homework. And right is a really good writer. He just doesn't. He's not like, yes. I want to write every day. You know what? I mean. He's good at it. But he it's not like something that you're like high of this fire inside me to write every day. But you're good at it. Yes. You are. Thank you. Let's see though, the feedback has been like, it's just it. It's insane. How many relationships are out there that want to like read about other relationships and tined some sort of like like connection to it or like like relate to it? Some ability to another couple and learn from it, and I feel like from the sounds, but that's what your books doing exactly. And like something we we always say, and we say in the book is like relationships marriages, specifically hold the power to interpret how you experience life whether it misery or joy. So just like what you just said. Like, so many people. It's like, yeah. They're just craving for something to get to that spot that healthy. Yeah. Baseline of a relationship to build on. And really that's what we explore in the book. And we're like in the book real honest about the things that we struggled with our conflict. I mean, like we get his pretty vulnerable and like, so we're really flared. But that's why it will do so, but, but we we thought you know, there's there's a lot of books out there on. On marriage. There's a look marriage, and we'll have not been married long enough to quote, unquote, write a book on marriage. So, but there's nothing really out there by people who are kind of like in it with the people that are like we're kind of in it with them. You know, what I mean with the reader were in the same season as the people were writing to in the book and coming at them from a perspective of like, we're in these same struggles. And like we can relate to the same things worth probably way more relatable than you might think. Right. I mean like social media paints. This like, oh, you know, goals, whatever. But it's like not like we actually probably struggle with a lot of the same things that you do right now. So let's talk about them in the world doesn't in another highlight reel. Yeah. And so we need some more of raw real reality. Real stories that was kind of another mission we had with the book. It's like, let's kind of like what we do with our podcast like let's get behind the scenes hind the curtain of this veil that we naturally put we front let's get back there. Because that's where the that's where the roots of the vine are. I think like social media too. I try and like mixing some really real post, and I try to like talk about anxiety and certain. You've done a great job with that. But it's also you got to also understand that not everybody wants kind vets sometimes they're escape for like, you know, pretty things. Nice things. And people wouldn't really wanna see your arguments on social media passing. You know? So a book is a really good opportunity to like actually write out your feelings. And you have a lot of pages to women with long for people can actually like sit down and not see the pictures, just like read and feel those thing. Yes, you're never going away. Yeah. You ever true? True. I think especially for you can download them and listen to them now on them. You know, like, that's yeah. They're not going anywhere. So I feel like that's that's such a good platform for you both to have and to share your story and to have people understand that because you probably do seem from TV and Instagram perfect. You know, and you probably don't want people to think that because it's it's a lot of pressure. Not true. It's just literally great. It will crack it. It will not be buoyant forever. Right. So like, do we want to bring people along our journey with us or do we want to be the people that like crash one day because we put up this facade that one day sink. Right. And it's like that's a real decision. I think a lot of people in our positions. Maybe, but you know, everyone for that matter. No matter how quote unquote, influential you are on social media like that something for everyone to realize we're all putting up front somewhere. Yeah. Exactly. Even I talk about that was like I have musicians on just because I'm in nationals all have a lot of musicians you come in. And like no matter what their story is. And what they write about in their music. People can always relate to it. Even even if it's has a different meaning to them, you know, like everyone can read a break and find different meaning everyone. Whether it's a the I was going to ask you for a single people. How can they relate to your book? They wanted to read it can it be good for them. But yeah, yeah. Okay. Question. We I mean, I would say even just in the past few days since it's been out like majority of the response has been from single people. We have because there's just not a lot out there for like, how do you navigate dating right now? And how do you navigate one of the big things that we really tried to like, this is just a huge thing for us when we were engaged in dating was we wanted to be more intentional intentional about preparing for our marriage than preparing for our wedding. Because our culture is so obsessed with the wedding day. Right. And so everyone spends all this money and all this time planning this epoch wedding. But they don't do anything to prepare for an epic marriage. Right. And so we were really intentional about like we wanted to spend more time preparing for our marriage. And so there's hopefully people will find a lot of tools in the book to prepare more of your marriage than your wedding in not just up even going before that even become the ri-. How do you become the person, you know, we're all looking for this specific person to date like are you that person? And so we talk the opening chapters are actually all about like, okay? Like, let's navigate the single of you or the season of you before you meet someone because that is. That is vital fresh fertile territory there that a lot of people overlook because we're so busy looking right true. All right. Who doesn't love a tasty smoothie in the morning. I know I do the problem is it's easy to get stuck on autopilot making the same smoothies every day. And even the best smoothies can start to get boring and predictable. So why not mix things up a little with frozen dole crafted smoothie blends, they do all the hard work for you, pairing only the most delicious fruits together into unique blends like taking a typical banana and berries smoothie and mixing it up with mangoes and refreshing limes and Kiwis or you could treat yourself to a sip of paradise with the strawberry watermelon blend. Delicious coconut the best part. They're born to be blended each bag is perfectly portioned with fruit. That is frozen to lock in all of those nutrients and flavor, and every piece is already washed and cut. So all you have to do is fill up your blender with one of the single serving begs. And some coconut water and then blend for an exciting smoothie dole crafted smoothly blends, find them in your frozen. I'll I don't know if this relates to you both. But I know that you said you were in relationships before and then you guys met, and it was unexpected. And I feel like that same thing happened for me. But I felt like I was already in a position where I was like established. And I knew who I was and I was like in a in a place where I felt like I was really actually ready to be in a relationship, and I'm can't wait for marriage and all those things. So did you feel like you were both ready in just like as individuals when you met each other? That's a great question. Would you say I would say that like I think our season. So we did a I pursued Audrey for two years. So we met, and we're like stayed friends. Okay. Strict friends, we didn't talk. And but it was in that pursuit that I I say in the book like meeting a lot during those years, I say the meeting Audrey held a mirror in front of my face. I saw the man I was in comparison to the man I wanted to become and so I grew in those two years immensely, and it was actually a very special season in my life as I pursued Audrey is actually kind of pursuing the Lord and myself at the same time who am I? Know for me. Yeah. So it was it was a fun season. So I would actually say no, I wasn't really in the right spot. Because if I felt like I was I probably would've messed it up. I'm crazy. That's true. Well, but you were but you grew into that. Then started dating. Yes. Exactly. So that there you go. Yeah. Yeah. We waited. And a lot of that was like I was in. I was we were young we met when we were nineteen. So we were I was in this. You know, I was in college, and I was a collegiate distance runner, and I was like doing school. Like, I was like I'm gonna thing. And I don't need a date. Like, I was in that phase now where I was like kind of an yeah. But then I met Jaren. I was like okay, I've never met anyone like him before. I'm definitely interested. But I don't wanna date you right out. Right. So we just friends friends a longtime. We call it the patient pursuit because Jerry pursued me, but it was so patiently on earth. Creeper that texted me every day, you know, very strategic with. Yeah. But I was also I was also I was the guy that was like, whoa. I've seen her three times. And she hasn't even mentioned the show. Right. I never seen the show about late. I was like before Instagram like that. Really intrigued me well because you get so jaded sometimes come like bean from a TV show where that's how people know you. And you question people's motives and intentions and all those things where I mean, I've had troubles making friends in Nashville because that same thing, you know. So it's it's that is intriguing when a person isn't just you know. Oh, I know you from here. Now, I'm I'm interested like, she knew you wanted to know you for you and got to know you for you. Yeah. Those let's. You are so cute. I can't stand it. It's a fun. It's a fun story. And I love that. It's been nine years. Yeah. Those nine years. Yeah. It's actually insane. Like does not feel gun. And then once you a great head. You're like time. I don't understand. And we're like, wait. We just had I like yesterday knowing no, it's even just having a niece and nephew friends with babies. I'm like, wait. It makes time go so much. They gross. Just feel like we're just getting started. Right. We're like just hit boots on the ground got going on all this fun stuff like baby. So many ideas like we are pillow talk. Let me tell you guys sleep at night. I bet you just lay there and it's nine. Oh, yeah. So when I wanna sleep. See idea I can shut it off. Oh, I this is the pillow. I'm brains off. Yeah. Yeah. That's okay. So, but your mind keeps go I'm a little I mean, I can sleep. I don't have problems sleeping like price, which is a hard time. I want to keep talking keep verbally processing all the things. And it probably has the most at night just recorded some automak responses. I push play and go to bed by. Yeah. Oh. I thought even you just record her her talking about all her ideas. Yeah. It's a great idea though. He actually never used that one before. So the book, and we're still like we're gonna talk about the book a lot. 'cause it's amazing. And it's obviously getting great response you when people like review or their us and whatnot when they're like, I can't put it down. Yeah. It's just I bet you we'll save relationships. You know, like. Yeah. And maybe N ones that need to be ended rightly well. And that would be a beautiful thing too know, some people just need to read that one book that help them get out of a toxic relationship. And then thank you for that. And or relationships with themselves, and yeah, that's that's just as beautiful. We'll be back with more off the vine, Kaitlyn bristowe. Alexa, isn't the only one with breaking news. Make sure to hang around at the end of this podcast for the latest breaking headlines on the news minute. All right, everyone.

Download new episodes of now what with Jessica graph every week on apple podcasts and podcast one. You're listening to off the vine with Kaitlyn bristowe. I don't know if you get a special lot. But what is your definition? Who love? I think I can summon up in one phrase that I say all the time k to find and still seek now that is true. So I think true love is pursuit ultimately at its core level pursuit. It's to find someone experience all those emotions, but then to say, you know, what I choose to love you forever till death to us part. That is a choice. I'm making foot in the sand. I'm gonna vow to that. And I'm gonna live into that prepare for that in strategize for its success. That's true. Love. Ever guy out there? That's listening like three take that or or woman, whatever. But like, that's the conduct is the constant continual. You know, that's the progression of because it's like there's going to be days where you want nothing in the world to do with the person course. Yeah. But like nobody wants to say that. But it's true. It's true. So what are you left with? Yeah. You're left with a choice. Yeah. Action. What am I going to do actions? Yeah. There's a Timothy Keller, quote, that's like, you know, we all we often think that feelings of love will produce actions of love. But it's actually true to say that actions of love will produce feelings of love. I choose to do those ashes everyday that might even when you don't feel it. Yeah. You know, and like parents can relate to this. Because like you choose to love your kids every day. Even don't feel after that love. But you choose to do the action. And is that unconditional exactly yeah. And that leads to a great great point. Can I bring this up like? You're going to bring us Dr driving success though. Like, if you think about it every sport every successful sports team business organization. You name it on the planet early. All have in common. They all have a mission statement. They all have goals, they all have strategy and usually some type of yearly summit. Why don't we have that for marriages? Do you have a statement diva? It's almost like a mission statement you do. Yeah. Well, it's like it's like why why wouldn't we it's like we wanted. We want to strategize for success just like every other successful team on the planet. Does it's like why are we we're almost like strategizing for failure in our current cultural marriage structure situation. It's like I am guilty of that. Yeah. I am guilty for the conviction. I just know. I challenge these thoughts because I'm like with our relationships. It's almost like we go into them with this like, well, I hope it works out of to or. On every one no wonder a couple years later you haven't designed success. So going back to August point. Like, what if you built in actions of love, even if it's like, this is going to be a silly example. But like a twelve twelve noon alarm that goes off on your phone everyday. You texture wife something you like about her. It's like that is an action of love that when you get home at night. I bet it will reward you. That's so true sounds so cheesy chasing does that put on Mason. Adds it in his calendar or notes or he has set an alarm. Green flag. He green flags. Get good. I was talking about this to my girlfriend today. Do you know that Marco Polo? Yeah. Okay. I use it with my girlfriend who is in Calgary. And so that's how we chat every day. And I was telling her just green flags everywhere. That's an awesome. That's good. Totally thinks is us as a team. He like changes. My mindset he encourages me to think differently. He knows that like I always try and like sabotage because I like that's how I grew up. My parents were best friends, but then they ended up getting a divorce, and it was like, you know, a pretty for for divorce pretty healthy. And they stayed in Rennes. They still are friends, but I saw two people fall out of love. And so that was always my fear of these peop-. I'm gonna follow up and keeps proving me right in relationships and Jason comes from a family where his parents have been married forty years. They have a very healthy relationship. And he's just like, well, that's what I've seen my whole life. And he is very understanding. Of my situation and wants to like convince me and wants to be there for me through everything. And he's just like we are a team. Like, you always good. One red flag. Green flag. Yeah. It's so cool to hear about that too. Is we have this chapter in our book? It's the whole chapter, and it's called not Nyland in the whole idea is like are you isolating or integrating of that with commodity as released because we all do start dating someone in the face of the earth, and no one ever sees you anymore. No. Or do you start dating someone and hang out with friends? So that your friends can raise green flags or red flags yet need to you know. So that's good. Shots. That's a healthy sign. That's awesome. I want to show him off. And just yet. I love the best. How we found felt we I actually want to hang out with friends because like wh if if you're isolating your only isolating if you're hiding something, right? So it's you know, that's a sure sign, but so people. So people sometimes go fall. So I've done that. I've known that you know. Yeah. Yeah. And I've I've started going into hiding and just wanted to like spend time with that person. And it's obviously not a healthy thing to do. But I mean, as I've grown older and experienced more in relationships than I've definitely like, I just feel like everything in my life. And I said this about my last relationship. Oh, led me to this. But even though that that one's still led me to this. And I feel like I'm finally at a place where I'm like, okay. I I truly believe in my heart that this feels right? Yeah. Yeah. I write a book. You should. I'm sure you I always do confessions on my podcast. People. Tell me what they wanna get off their tresses or anything in your book that you confess that. Or there are a lot of things you can just pick one. Oh that you wanna share or something in your daily life? This embarrassing. Do this morning that you wanna share anything anything anything? Anything heart desires? No questions bowl. Yeah. Like what do on the right over here? Someone's like the one thing. Oh boy. The only thing that came to my brain, which should probably confess. Okay. I don't know if it's a stupid or silly. But now, I do this all the time, and it's probably. I know I know we go to people's we're hanging houses. And I always like go run of the car car. You know, throw my coat in the car. I gotta get Aldridge purse. You know, and I go tinkle everyone's yard on tank. People don't know outside because I grew up on. Oh, yeah. Me says the word tinkle has everyone just gonna be like. Oh, yeah. Totally like, can you can I take can take tangle. He says that like when he was looking that's so the only really restroom, but everyone's like if depending on the audience say restroom, but if it's, you know, see I say washroom, but that's another Canadian. European thing. Right. Yeah. You're right. That is a thing. Yeah. Canadian koya. Yeah. So. Literally sleeping outside every like in the summer. He would sleep outside in his tent by they can't firepit every single night. If you think about straight, so he just. I love the outdoors and stuff. But like if you think about it like you mean to tell me that I'm going to take a little water in this thing and flush two gallons of water. It's like that's like you're like it's so weird planet at the same. I guess. Yeah. But it just like it's so to me, I'm like, I'm not going to the restroom can here. I'm going gonna go outside and take care of Bush real quick. So. Guys can do that. But I kind of respect that. Yeah. Yeah. That's fun. That's a great confessional. I like that anyone I know hearing this are probably gone. My pension is I've probably beat him more bushes. The new. I didn't grow up on a for this. That's great tell the story in the book because literally probably third time that we hang hung out. So I was a distance runner. So Pete outside all the time. Yeah. Yeah. You're running for hours. Right. There's no trying to find a bathroom. Yeah. And so we're hanging out, and we're in this like wooded clearing place that we drove to the trucks, and like had a fire whatever and tha bathroom, and I were that to go the bathroom, and I was like I have to go the bathroom in jazz. Like, there's no porta-pottys. And I'm like, it's okay. I can just go in the woods or whatever. And I was like. In the book because he's like he was stoked about it. It was like thing that too. You. The deal for confession. We've both PR side a lot what? Yeah. We are is. So, you know, get a little crunchy over there. I didn't even ask how you guys met. We were set up on a blind date. Okay. I'm usual friends who trusted Jeremy like neither had ever been on a blind date and Jeremy probably on them. It was a double date. Ours was blind. They had been date. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Trusted them enough to be like, okay. This is just weeks after both of us got out of serious long-term relationship. But you're still so young too. Yeah. We were pretty young. We were. Whoa twenty. Yeah. Twenty that is crazy. Beebees? And I wanna know like you said earlier about how you were intentional with working on the marriage before he got married. What are like, I know? It's probably in the book. But what are some things you could just talk about on the podcast things that you did as a couple to to strengthen your relationship before you got married. I would say first of all like people say there's no such thing. Shortcuts in life. That's totally false. There's absolute cuts mentor ship. Okay. People that have done there. And then there been there done that done there been that. Along. Third mishap. But it's like they're like mentor ship for us premarital counseling was was huge during premarital counseling. We there's so many things that we did. Well, we talk about this thing in the book called we call it like our elimination of the past where we had to eliminate the past magin for our future. And so they're kind of like a few like main things that we really had to talk about before we got married like our family's histories. You know, how we can indicate how we were raised to communicate. How we saw her parents handle conflict. How is our parents handle money? What's our view of money? Wanna save spend give you know. And then what's our like, physical, intimacy and sex our view of the end, what do we think about that? And are there boundaries around that? And what does that look like conversation as sickly just our past honest conversation yet? And like a lot of people that are getting married don't wanna have those because it's so much work to plan a wedding, especially if you're working a fulltime job, and those conversations are emotional and really hardly take energy and energy. Out the time to have them. You're right there draining. But you have to do it because you get so far from there so worth it. Because then you don't drag things into your marriage or your long term relationship that you like didn't want to drag. You know, what I mean if the goal again back to your question is prepare how like some practice how we're preparing for our marriage instead of just our wedding. I think healthy perspective of what is going happen. We're gonna become one. So all those conversations are basically dissecting what's going to happen when that process takes takes shape. Okay. If we're one on our wedding day, we commit ourselves one another that is the clashing of two different souls coming together in a moment. But then you gotta like iron that out for the next couple years. Right. So without all of the preliminary conversations on how that's actually going to work and what the goals are like, it's so true. It's gonna get messy like brush over the funny and. The how you how you were taught to deal with money and emotions and stuff. People don't have until you're actually, dammit. Nobody blows right referring to marriage. Nobody cares about the seat belt. They just want the crash, and they wanna pick up the peace at signal, and let's just try to buckle up a little bit. Because it's gonna get rough. That I really like that. And that's something. I'm again learning in this very healthy relationship. I'm in that he wants to have those conversations. We went out for the best dinner one night in Seattle. We had big seafood tower. We wanted a nice bottle of wine, and we honestly talked about all those things you just said like we talked about how our parents dealt with money, and we talked about how like we raise what we would want to in our family when we raise children like we really and after we left. We're like what how we are capable of some pretty deep conversation here live for D conversation. Like, I live for that kind of stuff because I feel like it, you will learn so much from it for, you know, going into your future with somebody. I think that's so important. I think that's by mean who is not going to benefit from this book of yours like everyone will. So far we've had we've had his thirteen years old saying like, oh, my goodness is give me hope as far as like sixty year olds the married for forty five years saying like, oh my goodness. Like this has brought new this breathe new life into my marriage. So wow, that is a gamut and bologna were like blown fresh, and it's still so new 'cause you write a book the process of writing a book is like two years, and no one really reads it except for your editor. And so for deal put to light the Senate just goes out. And you're like, no one's read this, right? We're like tapping our fingers would have people going to say. Right to be vulnerable in the specially in writing a book, I think like people don't want the, you know, that's that's why biographies and subway, they're so popular because because they're so real, and you're just reading these real Ross stories of people are like, wow, I can't believe you're sharing that. But like I can relate in some way. Or you know, there's so many things that can come from that. I just love it. We hope it's going to be good. You're doing fine. Technology is obviously a big part of Naty. Now, do you guys didn't really have go here. Do you think it it makes a harder for people to have meaningful connections? Absolutely can make it easier though, later I like, I think we can't technology so much because obviously you're in a long distance relationship. If. Hot. I'm like. Like it can be just as dangerous as it is hopeful though. And I think we don't consider the other side of that. Yeah. I think the thing that frustrates us. The most is when we see people out like we are wrong date night. As like, we don't take out our phones, like unless we're gonna snap a picture, or when I map ING or so it's like, yeah. Then when we go to dinner, everyone around us is just head down. We've date like you can tell they're on a date, and they're both just two or they're so obsessed with like getting out there for a second and doing whatever they wanna do and then putting it away. But then like that just being in the moment with the person that you love and actually being present. And like we have another like we don't have our phones in bed like unless like that's setting our alarm, but because we can go stayed up late. Don't get me wrong. We're on our phones a lot from our phones. Something wrong learning again. How are we strategizing for success? Those little micro villes that we've those boundaries that we've set up are going to keep the train track because the phone is such a distraction, but it can be used for, you know, working from home, do whatever you need to do social media can be business as well. So knowing when to put it down at the end of the night, you know, that's that can benefit you, and it can benefit your sleep which can benefit your next can benefit. You're like, you know, that's those are all important. It's the best thing that's been invented in the twentieth century, right? But it's also the most dangerous thing why we're losing the ability to connect, you know, releasing the -bility to communicate and there's all of these things, but we think phones are the single most. Biggest threats around stories. I mean, the person that you could have married literally bumped into you. And you didn't look up from her phone, right? It's so true the truth. It really like also just a fair has all at it's it's such a threat like it has access to things that you have on your phone. It's not reality. And no one thinks to put a boundary on it. They just wanna they don't wanna put about no rain, like whatever, you know. And it's like I really challenge. It's a discussion. I'm so glad you brought that up. It's the discussion. I think our generation specifically needs to start taking seriously. And I think I think the that we are like I think the like if I'm going to have kids when we so aware of that to my children, and so having those conversations and bringing that into the next generation, I think maybe there's like a little saving grace there for the next generation. But I it's just being aware. And how you treat your phone even in front of the kids, you know? But speaking of let's talk about your daughter. I love the name ember. How did you come up with that? Ember gene, Ambert, gene, that's beautiful. And you wanna tell? Well, so we fell in love around a campfire bits that was like like most of our dating and friendship was around this campfire pet on Jeremy. It's kind of a it's kind of a central theme in the book occurring embers. And like, yeah. So embers, you know, there's a lot of symbolism and embers their enduring their lasting, they're inviting their warm. There's there sparks in a force fire. It's the embers go ahead and keep spreading the fire. And so that part of the fire to and like, you know, I'm not gonna lie. I did wish that maybe should have red hair. She doesn't. Hey, it's okay. Yet. But yeah, so fires and it's a beautiful name. It's like it's like unique without being weird. For like coming out. These names like I'm pardon me. Three love it. She's she's amazing. How do you think? She is changed outlook on life. It's a good question. Man. I maybe she maybe she's just. I feel like it's. I think that she's made us away more selfless like when we found out where so she was a surprise when we found out we were pregnant, we realize in that moment that we found out how selfish we were. We were like, whoa. Wait a second. Hold on. We wanted to have kids. We've always wanted to make family always. But just we weren't ready. Right. And you never ready. But it was you know, I just be honest. We cried that night. Whoa. Or old life is just in a now, she's like the greatest joy like brings us more life opens. Our eyes makes us more aware to things like we're really learning things about ourselves about each other about his life through her lens. It's incredible kids are the you know, you've nieces nephews vine. It's so fun. Yeah. So we love it. We love her Mr. when you fear. So her shattered. This. This stretch was a long one. You guys have dog by any chance. We have a cat. I know what weird no all animals. Pine the kitty, she's a rescue Katie from a ranch, central Oregon. And she's no one cares about our cat.

You know? So we have the benefits. Yes. Exactly. So we drive there. Everyday our offices. There we go for walks and all that stuff. We were like we're in New York City a couple of days ago, and there's people walk around with like huskies like Manhattan.

I should be our confessions twice without any children around. Yeah. Yeah. Once when I was just like at home with my dog. And then the second time on a plane because I was like I love animals.

It's I think I might miss it in like a couple years. But right now, I love it. I met. Jeremy select cover of our book, he has this really long curly hair. Yeah. But I met Jeremy when he looked like this. So when he cut his hair he hadn't cut it in five years. And I it was kind of going back to all those feelings of falling in love. Yeah. Seeing him knowing knowing where to come to this media. I was like the last thing. I want to think about is my hair, right? He got so sorry. I don't wanna spend the brain calories on it. And so anyways, we cut it. We raised fifteen thousand dollars for charity water, which is really pretty literally built a well with Jerry's hair. Amazing. And it's kind of well then going back back again. Going back to the phones. People clean water for having here. Why not sounds like a great trade? So you miss it. But you also. Well with it. Good one. Caitlyn? People's Instagram names. Short girl sixteen. It's like aim all over. We love you mind, candy kiss like mine was tall dwarf. No bad. Yeah. That's. I was in. Well, I don't know.

And I love you guys question for love. How people call you guys fight nicknames. Would you? Raj raj. Yeah. What would you guys say is the most rewarding aspect of writing the book? Definitely hearing people's response to reading or. Yeah. Yeah. No question. Yeah. For sure simple way, more like, it's so cool to see are climbing charts and all that. But it's like deep heart meaningful to read people's response to it as we labored on that book for years, and it was going to say how long did it actually take you to to process? Yeah. But we wrote it in three months, and then here's a minute was like months of editing intermittently. I wanna say though, we wrote every word as like in. We wrote it for for people are position, I guess, it's like kinda rare. And so I I like to be able to say that. And we wrote everywhere it'd be very proud of that. And especially because you know, you even though you've had a long couple of days, you're both very well-spoken. And if you can do that on your own and write every word together that Stu makes the book so much more special and for people to read that knowing that is really important. So thank you. Sharing that when you to writing it together was at challenging to go back and relive some of the things or what was did it kind of bring you closer. And be like, you know, what I'm glad we got through that. I think everyone should rewrite their love story of how at some point whether it's public or not whatever it is pick by journal by journal and over the course of like twenty date nights. Yeah. Just start sketching out your life store how you met because one day. Yeah. One day you're gonna wanna look back and relive those feelings emotions for us. It was a special special experience reading the letters therapy. Like therapy, that's probably therapeutic. Because even even now, I sometimes regret not writing things down. Like, I don't even remember a relationship that was twenty two like eleven years ago. And I'm like that scares me. 'cause I wanna remember this right now in eleven years, I'm gonna forget things like writing down the so special that you guys have a look back on, but it was difficult and like we ate he's definitely chosen. Interesting writing style. We actually. Scrapped the whole beginning. More like three chapters in this isn't working we have to re kind of map this out a little bit too authors. Because we're like who's gonna tell what story, and then we also had topics we wanted to cover. But then sometimes the story didn't match chronologically with the topic says this is us as kind of like, yeah. But then you wanted to still make it flow. Good. Yeah.

Make me smart and see if you qualify for p. loan and to see the terms and program rules that's w. o. m. p. l. y. dot com slash. Make me. smart bird is hurt is everyone. I'm ali would welcome back to make me smart. The podcast where we make today make sense. Yes we do we do and if we can. We try really hard. I'm kind of result. Thanks for coming on or being with us or whatever it is what he wanted to wednesday day the deal is of course you send your questions answers And make y'all smarter and also us to smarter in the process. That's the way this exactly. Yeah it's circular guys. It's a circular economist that we're doing here and today we are going to start with question about april's job reports takeaway. Hi molly and kai. This is julia from california. Can you make smart about how the jobs numbers are calculated. Well i find it to be deeply upsetting. That one hundred percent of jobs would have gone to men. I find it hard to believe that. Zero women were hired into new jobs. Can you help me understand. Thank you totally fair question. And i was not clear last friday when i said men got all the new jobs. What i meant was and again. My bad men got all the net new jobs. That's not to say no women were hired right. You hired two hundred sixty six thousand people in an economy. Some portion of them are going to be women catch is that sixty four thousand women either stopped looking for work or left the workforce entirely sixty four thousand so that brings the total of net new jobs for women. To zippo bupkus squad. Zero for the month of april eight and it's concerning because it's it's echoes of december and january when as you remember almost four hundred thousand Women left the workforce because of as we've talked about his times childcare issues and parenting and all of that stuff that is falling disproportionately on women. So i apologize for the lack of clarity. Women were hired but annette. All the jobs went to mit now as to how lost jobs. You ain't got them what we mean. Yep yes thank you for that. That's a good clarification on how it's calculated it is There are a rolling set of surveys and there are two surveys. One called the household survey where people at the bureau of labor statistics literally call a rolling set of households. And i think you're in the pool for three months roloff so every three every month they add new and drop old right if that makes sense so it's a rolling three months and they ask people whether they are looking for work and that's how they figure out the unemployment rate because you're not actively looking for work you do not count as employed And if you are Sorry you don't count as unemployed and if you're looking for but you can't find any then Your counted in that number. So that's the household survey there is also the payroll survey where they call companies and say. Hey did you add new jobs in this reporting period and the reporting period for those who want to get way down into the weeds is called the reference week. And what they do is they make these calls. During the week of the month that contains the twelfth of the month. And that's known as the reference week and then they spit out the numbers two weeks later on the first friday of the month. So you're surveys household survey. Are you looking for work. Payroll surveyed the hire new people and then they roll that out on the first friday in a month. And that's figuring you know a lot of stuff dude. It will not. We should be clear that these numbers could be revised somewhat. Apparently the final news. April's out till june the revised every month in case you wanna get even further into the weeds about how these are calculated. But i think the main thing that you're asking is is it actually true that no ladies got jobs in that is not is not the fact. Exactly what we meant. Yes yeah but now. You know dana smarter okay. That's right Next voice memo apple and data privacy. And i have a follow up if i could i kind molly this is glenn. From ashland oregon. And i'm wondering if you could make me smart about apple's new privacy controls this recent update claims to empower iphone users. More abilities to opt out of app tracking. Can you tell me more. How does it work. And the potential to actually safeguard my privacy. Then what are the economic impacts to the industry. Thanks yeah. This is a very interesting question so the kind of primary way that this works. You are now in many cases opt in instead of opt out that is by default with the latest software. Update to apples. I devices ipads and iphones. You will now get a pop up asking if you want apple to track your activity across other companies apps and websites in the case of apps itself Their ability to track you using the unique advertising identifier that apple created by the way and that is tied to vung. They won't necessarily be able to access that by default. You would have to opt it and you would have to say that app like okay. Sure go ahead and track me. That sounds great and that has of course caused a lot of app developers to totally freak out because they will in fact lose revenue so now the to send you this notification and get your permission before you can track your activity if you say no thank you then. This unique identifier advertising identifier will be withheld. Apple has also essentially said to developers like we also don't want you to use your an email address or usage data. You know where you use your phone and how often that kind of thing to track you. Although that's like an honor system with these apps and then you know. It's a little unclear whether they're going to follow it. I i would assume that they're not because at this point. So much of the ecosystem is dependent on some kind of tracking. There will be some kind of tracking however it. It is in some cases pretty significant reduction. Facebook is obviously freaking out user previously. You had to go and specifically turn off this personalized ad thing app by app by app. Which was exhausting It doesn't however stop the app itself from collecting data about you. So it it just means like a third. They can't share it with a third party then and it depends on some privacy. Experts say it depends heavily on whether you actually understand what the pop up is asking you to do. because we're very used to just click and yes on things It is likely to be yeah. It's likely to be the biggest problem for really facebook. And maybe google because these are companies that rely specifically on targeted advertising. So one person told. Npr that baseball could take seven percent revenue. Hit because of these new revenue control. Privacy controls experts at. I talked to have said you know. Yeah this is a this is potentially a pretty big deal it. There aren't so many apps that makes so much money off of targeted advertising compared to facebook google but the ones who have made this their specific business model will now have to potentially come up with something different. It doesn't mean you'll never see ads. It just means you won't see personalized ads and it's harder to attribute your action when you interact with that add you specifically everything. I know about unemployment. You know about this prophecy thing so it is pretty. It's kind of fun when you get to see that we actually like you know. There's i mean there's not we've notes but yes. It is complicated. it is helpful. It is not a panacea doesn't mean there's no tracking it does not mean that there is still tracking. There are more limits on. What can happen with that data and sorry facebook. Sorry so here's my yes are not sorry. Here's here's my follow up for consumers who are genuinely concerned about About privacy is a game changer. Or is it nibbling around the edges. It still nibbling around the edges. I mean you know as long as targeted advertising and as long as data collection is a revenue stream it's just it's nibbles and apple itself in this actually concerns me. Apple itself is getting into the advertising business and one of the reasons that apple has been so trustworthy on issues of privacy. Means because it doesn't a lot of reason to collect data about you. It's not in advertising and if it is all of a sudden even if it's a small you know now it's like ads for apple products on its own app store but advertising means data in data's temptation and i. I wonder why tim cook. Is cracking open that particular. Pandora's box right because it's not like apple needs money and really is only a headache so but i think it's i mean i mean. I have a lot of thoughts about that but they probably are. Its own huge podcast. Owns upper puckett's. Well we can. I apply the short answer. It makes sense it makes sense Okay yesterday kelsey from los angeles Donald into the big show The tuesday show about how she's looking forward to going back to the office. Here is part. Two of that voicemail. Mm-hmm molly have you heard about the star. Wars galactic cruiser outweigh twenty two. So first of all. Just take my money disney. Second of all do you. This is the future of travel. Especially as vr technologies become more ubiquitous in the future and potential recurring waves of covid immersive travel experiences that emulate locale seem like a trend. We might see more. I wonder what other companies besides disney investing in at this scale. Anyway your does rod. Thanks for keeping a smart. I know she was one of my nerves. She was one of people. Molly i hear you kelsey. I feel i'm picking up what you're laying down and actually i hadn't even more embarrassing So thanks to mersa forgiving me the background on it okay. So let's explain it. It's an all immersive vacation experience. That will debut in two thousand twenty two. At florida's walt disney world resort. You will basically live in star worse as you go through this resort so right now if you've been to the star wars experience at disneyland. It's kind of like that and you know had disneyland is so good at each individual part of the park every detail corresponds like as you're kind of headed toward the star wars experience in disneyland. You see the like trash cans gradually shift from like frontier town to sort of like leftover droid parts and you know it's you just you feel like you are there. And so this is taking that to the resort level and then presumably integrating a bunch of like vr and ar. Oh and i will say i mean one of the cool i didn't i didn't do full disclosure even though i am a nerd. I did not do the millennium falcon ride because those vr rides that are like an immersive experience and also ride bar rama. Ding-dong know for sure but the best thing about that ride is like. I just went through the hallway with my friends. And then i bailed is that you are basically in the millennium falcon before you get on. And so i can see that. This data massive appeal. And if you could ever resort that the whole thing is like funk's just like you would have when you were in a star cruiser and you have nothing but money to create that that's pretty awesome. Is it the future of travel for some people. Maybe i don't know i think we're gonna want to. I think we now want to go. Places is the sense. I'm getting like more. People are getting on planes. The middle point see is full. Yeah maybe i don't wanna do. Vr travel though. I really just don't know they're neat. But i don't know but a are like going to a cool resort like this and having era glasses and having the whole experience feeling like you're there absolutely so far so fun finally. I must meet this one in because just speaking of fund our next question comes from will in south carolina. It's definitely for kyw. He writes a hotter. Since it's been deemed safe l. o. L. to go back to the movies since most of us are vaccinated and knowing you are such a huge movie. Buff again el al. Will you see the new top gun in a theater. So i'm sure i've told this story before. I was in flight school. In pensacola when the original topgun came out and we all went to see in our whites in pensacola in the summertime. And it was let us just say we had a good time. Yeah it was. It was that was really good. It was it so many times. I spent i spent my. I spent my early twenties in pensacola living on the beach. Learn how to fly and dating a girl who had a water ski boat. Yeah oh yeah. I mean and let me let me tell you. I was insufferable. But anyway so so as just like i'm not gonna see topgun to because i don't wanna i don't wanna i don't want to tarnish the memories. Just yeah no man and look. I'm a huge no. I can't remember if i was on the air or off there. When i talked about how i have a playlist on spotify for awesome key changes just songs that have an awesome teaching you. Did i embarrassed enough to say that only like six months ago. Did i realize that the top gun theme is all one big keychain key change and added it to believe. It's my ringtone. It's i have like a crappy media song my ringtone. Yeah oh yeah. I'm getting in line to see that movie in a theater. Maybe i'm just in a savings delaying knowing it's going to be awesome. Just fly up here go with me. We'll make a show out of it record the whole thing or hard be fine. I m fun all right. that's it for. What do you want to know wednesday. We're going to make this happen.
