"So that's the biggest focus this year is filling up the zone and so far so good. I mean, I know it's spring training, but it's been really impressive to see the intent behind a lot of these pictures. I mean, they are throwing strikes and it's really fun to see. So that's their motto and then there's another shirt. The royals are all about t-shirts. It's a catching shirt and it's all in. That's the model it was all in every pitch. And there's a big emphasis with Paul with bench coach Paul Hoover, who's overseen catching as well, of the catcher's helping out the pictures by putting their glove. You know, we're not trying to be too fine here. Set up in the middle of the plate and let them movement work for each pitcher because these guys have a lot of movement on their pitches and they think that by helping out, helping out these pictures by setting up in the middle of the zone, they're not going to try to be too fine and then get in bad counts and all of a sudden it's a massive and not bad at that point. So those are two mottos that I think the royals are really preaching this year and we'll see how it turns out, but there is a huge emphasis on strike throwing and you're seeing it in spring games. Now it's a matter of saying it in regular season games. I hope they still throw some outside pitches too. All in be pretty predictable strategy report way. I know. I did I was given over some crap about that. And I was like, oh, you got to go all in and he keeps rolling the size of me. Yeah, that was fun. I did want to ask about the catchers and sort of what the bounce you think is going to be between Melinda's salvi and I guess Freddie Furman who's also on the 40 man. I mean, Perez is an elder statesman at this point. I think he's their oldest position player that we have projected to be on the opening day roster. So I imagine that they want to try to keep him fresh. How do you think that it's going to shake out in terms of those three and how much time they're going to spend behind the plate? Yeah, salvi is going to catch the majority of games still as long as he's healthy. And then you're going to see MJ Melendez in the corner outfield probably left field like he played last year. On the days that salvage behind the plate, couple a couple days a week, depending on the schedule, MJ will catch B salvi's backup catcher, and salvi will DH or you won't want to take a day off. So he'll definitely DH. But that's kind of the setup they have right now going into the season, that can change obviously based on injury. I'm really interested to see what the royals do with Freddy fermin. Do they have a third catcher on the roster as kind of a backup guy in case the royals get into a bind with MJ in the outfield, salvi behind the plate, you know, if an injury happens in game or something like that. So last year they did carry a third catcher most of the time, I'm interested to see how it all shakes out. I think it'll depend a little bit on what their bench looks like. But Freddie is a really good catcher. I really enjoy watching them and he's got a ton of energy. So it'll be kind of interesting to see how that shakes out for them as we get closer to opening day. Now that pitchers can call their own pitches with pitch come, will a royals catcher call a pitch for Zack Greinke this season. And they haven't yet so far and spring training games. So that is a great question. I think Zach really, really wants that to be implemented for the regular season. I make so much sense for a guy like him. And the catchers love it too. And he loves it. So it makes a lot of sense. And yeah, it's a great question. If he's allowed to have that pitch receiver, our trans winner, I guess, on his belt or glove or whatever it is. Yeah, I don't think he's going to let anybody call his pitches. Royals are interesting because on the one hand, you know, the gap between them and say the guardians and even the White Sox and twins is pretty substantial at least if you go by last year's record, but the central does still feel relatively winnable and I'm curious sort of how they view themselves within the context of the division and when they think they might be in a position to really start to challenge, if not for the AL central crown than for a wild card spot somewhere else. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, even this year, it just seems like for the royals to be in the position they are. They're also in the best division when it comes to. There's not a clear cut winner. I think the twins are going to be good and the White Sox have some pieces. So in the guardians, obviously, from last year, but there's not someone who is by far and away going to take the division. I do think the royals are looking at 2024, 2025 as their years to kind of get back into that contention window. Anything can happen obviously, but if the way that they, the way they wanted to play out, you know, take a good step forward this year with the pitching, have the headers adjust in their second years for a lot of them. And then start to bring in the pieces that really take them to that next step, that next winning level in the next coming years. Where does the royals ballparks search stand as it relates to public funding and sites and from your perspective, I guess how imperative is it that the royals have a new ballpark? Because I know they're looking for a downtown site that would be closer to the city. But on the other hand, Kaufman has always been and remains beautiful and renovated in the not too distant past. So I assume royals fans would be sorry to see it go, even if they had a shorter commuter and easier commute. So give us the pros and cons of the royal search for a new park and is it largely motivated by the location or is it more about the real estate development and how every team wants to make their complex into not just a ballpark, but a way to make money in other ways too. Yeah, I think it's definitely both of those. So the rules have a lot of questions to answer when it comes to this. If they want the stadium to be kind of on the ballot for voters in August, there's a lot of questions to answer before that a lot of information that they need to make public, first of all, is the location that they're looking at. I don't think that's too far off, but it's definitely going to be downtown. They've got about three or four locations that they've narrowed it down to that they want the ballpark and it's the ballpark district as they call it, to be downtown. They went on a they called it a listening to or this off season, it was more public presentation. They were given information, taking questions about this process. So there's a lot of questions to be answered still, and I think, but one thing is clear, you know, the roles want to go downtown, they view it as a much better investment than staying at compensating and renovating it, which is sad because Kaufman is awesome. It's really pretty, but there is a commitment that I've heard is to bring a lot of the elements that people love about Kauffman stadium to this downtown ballpark if it gets there. And you know, we're looking at a couple of years down the road still. I mean, 2027 is probably the earliest that the royals can be playing in that new stadium, as long as everything passes, but like I said, a lot of questions to be answered still by the team. So what are the biggest questions that the royals really need to answer this season are closing question is always what would constitute success for this team and of course you could say everything possible goes right and no one gets hurt and they somehow win a wild card or something like that. But barring that, I guess would be the absolute best case scenario what would be the ways to gauge whether the season was a success, whether it's progress on the pharma system or just

"And then it's just a matter of him ramping up going through his own spring training at that point. So I want to be surprised if you missed the first month of the season, but hopefully he can get this behind him with that oblique strain can be really tricky. So they want to make sure that it's completely behind him before he steps out onto that field in Kansas City, and then, you know, he's part of that group too, I think. We're going to see a lot of him once he gets healthy in center field and right field. And can he be part of this group that we're talking about? That's a major question for the royals to answer this year. So even though the royals had that great crap up position players coming along last year, it is sort of the pitching the young pitching that has been looked on as potentially leading to good things for them and really other than Brady singer. You couldn't say that anyone has broken out of that group yet. And so as you noted, just different approach this year, I think that's why there was a lot of frustration among fans about Cal eldred and perceptions that perhaps he and the royal front office were not supplying those young pitchers with the help that they needed. So you said that everyone seems to have a new pitch this spring. I saw the Daniel lynch seems to have a new and improved slider. What other new additions or changes have you seen this spring? And who are the leading candidates to really take a step forward on the staff? Yeah, I think Daniel lynch, you mentioned him. He's working on his new slider. He's working on a curveball. I think he is this, he can be really good. He's very talented. And the royals really need him to take a step forward as well. So I've heard a lot about how he can be the best of the bunch here still. It's just a matter of him taking the step forward and bringing that consistency like Brady singer, saw last year. So that would be something I'm looking forward to seeing. And then it's kind of weird. I don't know if Brad Keller is a part of this young girl, but he is like in that age, age bracket, I guess you could say. But he is another guy who is a spring standout. He's got a new curve ball that he's throwing a lot. He went to driveline this off season and worked with those guys on that pitch design. This is a pitch that he tried to bring in in 2020, and then obviously COVID happened and sideline in a little bit and he had a really great year that year, so we didn't need the curveball. And then the next two seasons obviously haven't gone the way that he wanted to. So the royals coaches were all in on him bringing a curveball to the mix and it's looked really good so far this spring. So we'll see how that helps him moving forward. And I think the third guy is Chris boob but she's dealing with a little bit of shoulder soreness. So he's a little bit delayed in his throwing progression in this spring, but he's going to throw his slider a lot more this year. He tried to do that last year, didn't work out the way he wanted it to, but he really needs that pitch to be unpredictable and kind of open up the zone a little bit more. Against hitters. So those are three guys that I think these new pitches could really help them take that next step. The royals weren't very active this off season when it came to making additions. I don't think they brought in a single non pitcher on a major league contract unless I'm missing someone. Of course, as we just mentioned, they added a whole lot of position players internally last year. So they made some trades for relievers and then I think the only free agents they signed to big league deals were veteran pitchers who ranged from sort of Jan to really that guy. Why where does he fit in, which maybe you could say a better role as Chapman and then there's Jordan lyles Ryan yarbrough, so was it just a matter of they didn't really think they were in a position to add this year or they felt like their internal options were as good as they could do and they're just sort of banking on the guys they already had getting better. I mean, what was the strategy behind bringing in some of the older veteran guys that they added to the mix? Yeah, I think two things. One, the royals weren't in a spot this year. They knew that this wasn't the season to go all in as far as acquisitions outside of the organization. Two, they are still high on their internal talent, and they really do want to see this question that I've been asking is how much can coaching change a players. But players season, they really want to see what this new staff does in regard to taking the pitching to the next level. And then as far as the guys they did bring in, it is a lot of veteran veteran guys, veteran pitchers, and I think a lot of it was about innings, Jordan miles, comes to mind when you talk about innings. They want him to be able to be a work horse for their rotation, kind of like Zach ranke was last year and obviously will want to do again this year. So that's the biggest setting and creating a little bit more competition in camp as well. I don't think is a bad thing. We're looking at a bunch of guys for basically two spots in the rotation, and I think with Q at the helm, we're going to see a lot of turnover on that roster throughout the year. Just to get to use really the whole 40 man and maximize the roster as much as they can. The royals had one of the highest walk rates last year on the pitching side, which is not great given that they also had the lowest strikeout rate. I think so. It's not the combination that you want. I guess second lowest of they were just ahead of the rockies, which is something, I guess, is so one strategy that they seem to be employing the spring, which has worked for other teams, including the rays who seem to really start it. And then the Orioles, at least at the beginning of last season, is just telling their pictures to fire it in there, basically, and trust their stuff and not try to finesse things that seems to have paid dividends elsewhere. So what have you witnessed when it comes to instilling that approach in the staff at large and how much does that go against their preexisting strategies? Well, the first thing I noticed when I got to camp this year was this T-shirt. I guess it's not a T-shirt. It's a long sleeve dry fit shirt that some guys were wearing and it's gray and on the back it says raid the zone and I'm like, what? What is raid the zone? And so I started asking around and it is their motto this year. Throw strikes, fill up the zone, and that's what they want. They want to throw strikes. If you give up a hit, that's okay. You were in the zone. That's their biggest thing this year, because like you said, last year, low strikeout rate, high walk rate, and that just can't happen. So that's the biggest focus this year is filling up the zone and so far so good. I mean, I know it's spring training, but it's been really impressive to see the intent behind a

"As stand up comedy, Chris Rock is a genius, been a fan for decades. It was not great. It wasn't bad, please. He even him on an off night is still a pretty great. I think it's clear that Dave Chappelle has lapped him in terms of both being funny and being intriguing and compelling. But what everybody was waiting for was his riff on the Will Smith slap. It was pretty masterful. It was pretty darn great. He spared nothing. And going off on will, on Jada, their weirdness, their entanglements, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

Because classically trained actors are always overly dramatic. Oh. It's hard. It's hard to bring in an actor, especially like that was trained in musical theater. When I was in film school, we brought in a musical theater actor for like a project we were doing. Good God, it was impossible to stop this guy. Talking like this, you know, and everything was, it was like a nightmare. They do tend to overact a little bit. The guy is bizarrely dramatic. I think it probably worked at the time.

When Did Education Devolve? Michael Gibson Weighs In
"Talking to the polymathic. Michael Gibson, the book is paper belt on fire, how renegade investors spark to revolt against the university. You were just saying Michael about, you know, in some ways we come at the end of the enlightenment. It really hit home for me already in the 90s when Bill Clinton was saying, we've got to get computer or a laptop in every classroom for every kid. And I thought to myself, where do you get the idea that a dead tool is going to give people wisdom and whatever you really reduced education to something far, far, far removed from what it once was. Education is supposed to teach us about how do I become a better person? How do I learn about the amazing universe? It was impossible at some point to divorce that from the question of God and the question of who we are. But things had devolved already to that point where it's all technocratic stuff and we just needed information. We just need to get laptops in the hands of the kids in the ghetto and that will solve their problems and you think it's a really myopic view of humanity and our problems, but that's kind of where we are. That's kind of where the tech stuff takes us. It removes us from the question of what it means to be human, which to me was always at the center of what it is to be educated. Yeah, I think that is a great illustration of this contradiction at the end of the enlightenment where we just see students now as these passive consumers of things that the teachers of the school are supposed to just shove into their minds and they must accept. Fauci is like the arch priest of the post the end of the enlightenment. Don't think for yourself, I am the science. If Emmanuel Kant or whoever heard that, the Royal Society's motto is take no one's word for it. Nullius and verba. So it's beyond me that science has become this that we must obey the authority. Well, let's call it what it is. Science is anti science.

Meghan Markle's Ego Damaged by South Park Parody
"About the news that prince Harry's wife, Meghan Markle, is allegedly distraught over her portrayal in the South Park comic as a whining privileged narcissistic, you know, woke actress who just doesn't get it. Well, now I'm not saying it's easy to be a royal, right? Believe me. I'm sure I'm sure it's a tough gig. And I'm sure it's especially hard for her because she's not the star. But that's kind of the way it goes, right? Because, well, she was never going to be the star, and she was delusional. She ever thought she would be. Anyway, I do want to say I applaud the decision by The Crown or the firm as it's known to actually encourage future offspring and not encourage or telling them. You know, you're going to have to go get a job. So princess Charlotte is going to have to go get a job. You're not going to be a working royal for the rest of your life. I think that's incredibly healthy, but you know me. I'm a big believer in work. And I think people need purpose. And I think part of the problem with what has transpired there is you had the younger brother who was never going to be anything. I mean, look what happened to his uncle. He never had a chance to kind of be his own man. He was just waiting in the wings. And as a result, has been quite troubled in many ways. And then you get Meghan Markle, who perhaps thought she was smarter than everyone else. Well, she clearly had no idea what she was getting into.

4-day workweek trial in UK: Shorter hours, happier employees
"9 out of ten companies who took part in the world's biggest trial of a four day workweek are not going back to 5 days. Britain's royal society of biology took part in the trial. It involves longer workdays, employee Tessa Gibson loves the four day workweek. Weekends could be quite hectic. The two day weekend. So it's been quite nice to have that extra day. You see your friends and family on the two days when they're also free and then you get that extra day off during the week. Just to do all your chores or just to have that time to yourself. The Royal Society of biology's chief executive doctor Mark downs has seen a change. We see there's actually been a decline in the amount of sick days. But Jay Richards, cofounder of London's image and insight says four days is rushing it. He's tweaking the traditional work schedule. We do a 5 day week, but ten to four. So we shorten the days, and that means that the employees get to have that work life harmony, but they're not actually shorting their week. 70% of employees in the trial reported reduced levels of burnout.

"Don't Put Words in My Mouth" With Myra Adams
"Talking to Myra Khan Adams who has written two books, Bible study for those who don't read the Bible, part one. In part two. And Myra, we're focusing just today on there are so many phrases in the Bible that we hear in the normal course of life, but we don't realize that came from the Bible. And one of those is, you know, don't put words in my mouth. Kind of an amazing concept. Don't put words in my mouth. That comes from the Bible. Yes, it does. It's actually from second Samuel. And it's actually, you can really look at it two ways. You put you put words in my mouth, or don't put words in my mouth. But the actual verse and the Bible says, then go to the king and speak these words to him. And Joe had put the words in her mouth. So the verse pertains to some royal levels of dysfunction in deceit. So it is important to understand the context, but the context gets lost because people don't read the Bible.

Three times as many people evacuated. On small little private boats. On little boats and destroyers. And the courage of the Royal Navy and the British merchants. So it was success so much that Churchill immediately said wars are not won by evacuations. Even though he would manage to save the British expeditionary. And two divisions of French soldiers. He didn't hide it. He didn't hide it. What Biden did was the greatest military performed the greatest military disaster. Since the surrender of the Philippines.

Green comet zooming our way, last visited 50,000 years ago
"A comet will get close to earth tomorrow. Most people in the northern hemisphere will be able to spot its green tail. The comet is named C two O two two E three ZTF and it last visited us 50,000 years ago during Neanderthal time. Astronomers Jake foster at the royal observatory says the comet should travel about 26 million miles from earth. Sometimes the planet Venus can get closer to us than that. So we certainly not in any danger at all, but we are just close enough that we can get a quite nice view of it. The harmless green comet is already visible in the northern night sky. The green is caused by the effect of the sun's ultraviolet radiation, shining down onto the comet. Indiana University astronomy professor Catherine piski explains what to look for. The comet will appear as a very faint fuzzy patch. It can be seen with binoculars and small telescopes and possibly the naked eye in the darkest corners of the northern hemisphere. I'm Ed Donahue

So you put together your team of special forces guys and what happens? I mean, are you in contact with Aziz during this period? Yeah, absolutely. I'm talking as easy as we're trying to make sure he's moving to safety. They stay safe. While we're working to get move forward. But when I talked earlier before the break about a miracle happening, there were several advance that happened that if any one of them did not happen or a door was closed, this whole thing wouldn't have taken place. And each one of those would have been an impossibility. The first of which was several calling the joint chiefs and asking for permission for us as severe an NGO to go onto the H Chi airport, a DoD controlled airport, land aircraft, go outside the wire, evacuate civilians, put them back, put them back in that airport. That's an impossibility. For anyone around the military. Yeah, you can understand that they're going to say, sorry, no. You can't do that. You're telling me they said yes. For some reason, they said yes. Which is a miracle. And then secondly, now we have to figure out how to move them. I mean, you can't just put them on a plane and fly to the United States. I'm not the State Department. And you can't bring someone without a Visa to another country. That's human trafficking. And you can only do that and Laura, Texas. But here in the real world, you have to follow the rules. And so we said, where can we bring these people to? And we called the UAE because we had some connections with the royal family there.

Danielle D'Souza Gill Talks Prince Harry's New Book 'Spare'
"I'm back with Daniel d'souza gill author of the choice, the abortion divide in America, host of the show counterculture with Danielle d'souza gill. We're talking about the royal family and Harry prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It seems like the focus on these two characters has come mainly because of the Netflix special, which was a kind of revealing, although maybe not revealing in the way they intended interview series of interviews with Harry and Meghan Markle. And also Harry's new book spare, can you first of all, am I right in assuming that the title spare is an implication that Harry is referring to the fact that sort of his brother is the first in line. He's the real deal. He's the legitimate heir and Harry is kind of the spare? I mean, Harry makes some pretty wild accusations in his books fair, which is the only reason that it's apparently the number one selling book in the Guinness World Records beating Obama to sell the most number of copies in the first date was released. And it's not because he decided to share some childhood memories of playing in some kind of field in England. It's because he wanted to really spill a lot of tea on the British family. So some of the main accusations he made were. William and him got into a physical fight, William, you know, through I grabbed him by the collar, threw him on the ground, and he cut his back on a dog bowl. Just Charles, like when he was young, said, oh, Diana, thanks for giving me a spare. Harry's my spare. He makes claims about Camilla, you know, kind of being able stepmother. He makes claims about Kate Middleton, mostly regarding her fights with Meghan, basically how Meghan was the good one and Kate was kind of the dumb one or something. And so he's very into kind of doing these personal jabs at each person, which is why so many people have been intrigued by the book. I have been buying the book because they want to see what's in it.

Danielle D'Souza Gill Joins Dinesh to Discuss the Royals
"You were talking a moment ago about the fact that the royal family is sort of stayed out of politics, and it seemed that the queen, the late queen, was, you know, also stoical in her personality, tended to hold her emotions and check in that sense, reflected the personality of an earlier era. Would you agree that it was starting with lady Diana that we began to see a kind of a new sensibility within the royal family, which is the idea of being a royal as a form of self expression. I say this because it seems to me some of what's going on with Harry and with Meghan Markle is an extension of what happened with lady Diana. Do you agree or do you think that they're actually very different? I would say they're different. Some people say Megan is like Diana. Megan herself has keeps trying to imitate Diana. She will wear the same outfits as her. She claims she never knew who the royals were. She never followed any of this. Other people who knew her have claimed differently. But it's pretty clear that she has tried to put herself in that line because Harry has this kind of obsession with his mother's death. So I think that was something that Meghan did strategically to make herself seem like a new Diana. However, Diana was really the people's princess and she was loved by many people. She was even though she had a lot of problems that was more of her at least brand whereas Meghan is more of someone who most people dislike, even before this book came out. She really wasn't very popular. She was popular around the time of her wedding, which is when kind of the royals and we're still getting along with her at least as far as the world's thought they were getting along. And most people were really excited about this new person joining their royal family. People thought it was cool. She was of another race and so on. And so I think only really after that after Meghan joined the royal family, did her popularity go down as soon as she kind of started acting in ways that were diva esque, like things were released about from her staff about her kind of being abusive towards them. Other people and then I think the pattern just continued of her. Sort of acting in that entitled way,

The schedule has been released for the three day coronation weekend, which will begin with the crowning of Charles may 6th. He's a very sensitive person and he's very aware of the significance of the coronation ceremony. And so I think it'll be a extraordinary moment for him. Historian Hugo Vickers says the royal family wants to show it still has a role in a nation struggling to deal with the cost of living crisis. Royal historian doctor Tessa Dunlop hopes all the king's family will be there for the coronation, including Harry and Meghan. But also I think the optics internationally mean that it's important there is a form of reconciliation. The day after the coronation, Buckingham Palace is inviting people around the country to take part in the big help out, encouraging them to volunteer in their own communities. I'm Ed Donahue

UK's king asks windfarm deal profits be directed to public
"Britain's King Charles the third has asked that annual profits from a $1.2 billion crown estate wind farm deal be used for the public good rather than for the royal family, The Crown estates confirmed that it had signed lease agreements for 6 offshore wind projects, the profit from such projects would normally lead to a jump in funding for the royals under a complex system that funds the activities of the monarchy in the UK, but Buckingham Palace has said that King Charles is requested for the money to be used to help the public, which is struggling to make ends meet because of record high inflation rates.

Kevin McCarthy and the House GOP Hit the Ground Running
"Kevin McCarthy and the House GOP have hit the ground running and they have unleashed a flurry of new rules and new proposals and new bills and new projects. And I think tomorrow Friday I'm going to dive into what some of those are. It's a pretty comprehensive package. And if we have good follow through, things are going to be looking very good from the house for the next couple of years. They're going to put the Biden administration, not just tie it up, but put it completely on the defensive. And it looks like the House Republicans also unintimidated by the media. Today, however, I want to focus on one of these projects, namely the House voted to establish a new committee to investigate what Republicans are now calling the weaponization of the federal government. Now, some people are calling this the new church committee. And that's an excellent reference because the church committee was set up in the 70s. By Democrats. In fact, democratic congressman, if I remember Frank church and the idea was to investigate the abuses of the deep state of the FBI of the CIA, it wasn't called a deep state at that point, but the idea was you've got these police agencies of government, they don't seem accountable really to anyone. They operate sometimes as royal agencies, obviously the FBI is tasked with functioning in the United States as CIA abroad. And there's a whole bunch of other ancillary agencies that are not as well known as these two, but also have tremendous power, and the idea is let's dig into them. Let's use our subpoena power. Let's do real oversight and let's figure out what these people are doing and particularly with the view to protecting the privacy and the civil rights and the constitutional rights of American citizens.

It is a little bit like empire, other people have been calling it the country music version of Succession and those are both pretty fair comparisons. You may remember this show being heavily promoted during the NFL playoffs earlier this year, but then they decided at Fox to postpone it.

It's a very soapy show about the family dynamics in this country dynasty that's led by Susan Sarandon and country star trace adkins.

"Involving younger royals led to some of the most painful periods of the queen's life. In the space of a year, in 1992, the marriages of three of the queen's four children collapsed, and that November fired devastated Windsor Castle, her childhood home. In the words of one of my more sympathetic correspondents, it has turned out to be an annus horribilis. A horrible year. I think the queen really felt deeply wounded by lack of success of her family, let's say. Ladies Sarah Bradford has written several biographies of Elizabeth. She just felt humiliated and possibly, she felt guilty about it. Things got even worse. We have reports from Paris, the Diana, Princess of Wales has been killed in a car accident. The Mercedes she was traveling in crashed into a pillar in a tunnel along the seine. They were apparently being pursued by paparazzi on two motorcycles. It was 1997, and she'd recently divorced Prince Charles, but remained for many a sympathetic figure. Instead of returning to London to lead her people in mourning, the queen remained in her castle in balmoral Scotland, comforting her grandchildren. Diana's sons, princess William and Harry, again, Sarah Bradford. The week before Diana's funeral, was probably the low point of the queen's life, because for the first time in her life she was actually really criticized, deeply criticized. She appeared out of touch and uncaring many Britons were furious, bowing to public pressure, the queen eventually responded. I for one believe there are lessons to be drawn from her life and from the extraordinary and moving reaction to her death. I share in your determination to cherish her memory. With that tribute to Diana, the crisis faded

"What do you think about that? Is that the case? Do you feel the BBC and other big players? I'm not saying you're not a big player, but you know what I mean? Did they get better access and also where do you stand on putting a critical voice in? Would you put a Republican voice in your packages? I mean, I wrote a story today about a you of opinion poll, which shows that support for the monarchy has declined dramatically in the past ten years since the queen's diamond jubilee, particularly and I think probably worryingly for the institution of monarchy or the firm as Megan famously called it in her Oprah interview. Is that young people are as much likely to support a republic and elected head of state as they are to support the monarchy of someone like 33% for one 31% for another. Are we critical? Well, look at some of the stories in recent years, Prince Andrew will be critical of what happened there. Yes, we were. Well, we critical of the royal family when Megan said that she was driven to suicide. Will we critical of the late Duke of Edinburgh when he crashed his car? In his late 90s, in Sandra gun, I think there is a place to criticism. We do criticize where it is needed. But I think a lot of the time, royal stories are generally a little bit more upbeat, sometimes our editors want them in the bulletin because they lift the bulletin sometimes. I think that's quite important to get the right mix. In a bulletin. So yes, there's a place of criticism. And I think that that has to go in there. And I think we have to acknowledge that a good 20 or 30% of the country want us to have an elected head of state, not have a monarch. And Laura, would you say there's a difference between individual criticism, criticism of individuals within the royal family and then criticism of the institutions? Yeah, absolutely. I think I agree. I mean, I think that the coverage of Prince Andrew wouldn't have come out without journalists, I think it's perfectly valid point. I wondered if I then spans in tier criticizing the system talking openly about, even talking openly about what republicanism might look like, for example, we never really see that being spoken about. And I'm also interested in kind of the value. I'm really interested in the name like a royal correspondent, so you've got like a foreign correspondent, you've got the political correspondent. You've got a royal correspondent and how that might kind of give the role a type of value and kind of put royal news on the same standing as all of those and what that might do then in the public imagination in terms of kind of what kind of new users be in the detonator and what kind of news we might expect to see, I suppose.

And as the big broadcasters gear up for the jubilee celebrations, we'll be finding out what it's like to cover the royal family with the BBC's Johnny diamond and ITV's Chris ship and asking, is there any Roman royal reporting for criticism? Should there be? Laura clancy, author of running the family firm, is also here. But we'll start with Dan walker, one of the big beasts of breakfast TV. He spent 6 years fronting the nation's most popular early morning television show. Those 3 a.m. alarms must feel like just a bad dream now because on Monday, he starts his new role at channel 5, Dan, welcome to the program. I guess the obvious question is, why did you decide to make the move? Well, it had nothing to do with the 3 o'clock starts, although I am, even though I stopped doing breakfast now for a couple of weeks. I am still waking up occasionally at that time in the morning. I think it takes a while to sort the body clock out. I think it was just, if I'm honest, Katie, just opportunity. I think channel 5 came in at a chat and sort of said in a nicest possible way, we want you. And they said, we don't want you to just do the news. We'd like you to come and have a set number of hours every year of your contract to come and make TV for us. And I've got a creative role in coming up with what that TV is. And you speak to a lot of people who work in television on this program and everybody who works in TV and probably who listens to this will know that those opportunities don't come around very often. So you couldn't have done that other BBC, the BBC One offering you something like that. It wasn't a case of me going to a BBC and saying this and channel 5 of said this, what have you got? I never did that. I've been really open and honest with the BBC in the whole time I've been there really. And I just felt that there are opportunities at channel 5 that maybe I wouldn't have got at the BBC. And I think it's also a really interesting time in the industry generally and channel 5 is a fascinating place to be at the minute..

But but Pablo is he's a big deal, and so I think that this movie is maybe more of an event than we're suspecting, but you're right that the kind of person that would open up the newspaper and say, like, what's playing at the local art house cinema is like 65 years old years old and checking this movie out. So it's this interesting contrast of achingly hip filmmaker who is working for a very hip studio with an incredibly hip young star, but also making a sort of like borderline stodgy form of film, but trying to thrash that up and mess it up. And so it's a bit of an odd duck ultimately. I think I liked it a little more than you did, which I find fascinating. Yeah, probably you did.

That's one of those guys to and metheny and you just didn't they from your ned ios to mike metheny who are both guys that i'd probably punch in the face as well. Yeah and mathie knows. He's been around a winning organization in the past so he gets. It didn't go far up the interstate to and from saying far so but they are that they drive you crazy and so don't have to spend a lot of time on it. Got to be better gotta hit the clutch situations and open get people out and got score more than one. Run the just like a week and score twelve. You're not losing score fifteen. I'll lose score one skimpy no question score five night breadwinners on amount luis garcia. Okay sco you should be okay. And i would imagine we'll get the bullpen back to Up to snuff over the past the last couple of games when it happens and they've been outstanding and strength if not the biggest strength the last three or so weeks all right David kelly's team. He's gonna play his starters into the third quarter and my life. You yes why. And people say well why. What's the big deal well. Here's the reason why you do that is. This is a team filled with new players. Not only that but filled with players that haven't been in the system and even if they had. Here's what you liked to do. And i've been on teams in the past that do this is that you like players that are still find the finding their way with this franchise or with a new team playing into the third quarter because to come out at halftime with adjustments game planet. But what you do is you. Go in and say okay. We've done this this this and as you put it on the board. Here's what we gotta do in the second half. Hey running backs we've got. We're going to run the stretch play a little more. Whatever it is and we're going to spend time we're gonna get no huddle and run a couple of series of no-huddle and here's some of the adjustments and then you go execute it. You wanna see how guys go into the locker room because a lot of times the stars during a preseason going lock them take their pads often. They're done right now. It's come back out. Take that fifteen minutes or twelve minutes. Whatever we have at halftime now and make some adjustments and come. Let's see how you doing the first few drives or a couple of series third quarter and midway through the third quarter. Then you get them out and get the other guys in. So i think it's a good thing What they're doing and david kelly was discussing yesterday. The negatives and positives on offense. Now listen. they're winning but they're not gonna keep winning going over ten on third down david kelly on the negatives and the positives on offense and i'm sure there's some good coach speak here but i at the man who loves it. Well let me go to the negative. I know you said positive but there was a negative that i wanna make sure that we were over ten on third down. Which was you know not. Acceptable in couples were third and shorts The positive thing the most positive thing is which has something to do with us still having a chance to win the ball game with four turnovers. We did not turn all over and that was the most positive thing about coming out of the game offensively. Now you'd think about this. And i'm gonna tell you i don't know what the statistics are over the course of the last twenty years but since since the turn of the century but i will tell you this even if you go over ten like you saw against on third down if you sacked the quarterback what five times in the game you turn it over three four times meaning you turn them over even over ten years yes even as you look at that you go back and watch the tape and i was mentioning. Yesterday i forgot to pay it off. 'cause we got heavy into some conversation about a team that forces fumble that you heard them talk about australia. Australia is what happens is if you're not careful you're you're to that and then you miss tax right and there's one in bears problem at times big time. They used to get a lot of strips. But the problem is if you're all going strip and you don't wrap up. That guy bounces off goes makes place. Yes what the great. I last year tackling right. So it's the whole thing is secure. The tackle i the rest of you come in and start. Stripping stripped the ball and that strip. I don't wanna see you guys on the field stripping but strip the fisher right but the problem is time now if you're chasing from behind and you know raked through it in late on grandpa but the first guy degrees has to come up rap and then the other dudes start stripping like crazy and tunnels no question so you have to what happens is if you force it so much in love. He's gonna force it. The you've got to be mentally tough enough to say. Gotta tackle i in strips acts or strip caused fumble second because this team when they watch tape. Probably make you throw up in your mouth. How they tackled last year. It was embarrassing. So with that. And david kelly's talking about the u-turn teams over four times even over if you give four for ten on third down and you turn the other team over four times and get five saxon. You don't turn it over. Oh you'll win. Winton games that just on that alone let alone even if you run into teams that are more gifted than you they turn it over there and trump. They can light the first year that we've seen it the i think it was the first year the bill. O'brien got here. Romeo's defense they turn the ball over a ton and it was a ryan fitzpatrick. la- team wasn't good offensive team. They still unlike like nine. Yeah you can be average if your defense is a danny green used to always tell. I don't care if they feel for five now. Deep down guys throwing for five hundred yards a game on us and we'd be problem but we turn people over in sacked people sold and he used to. We jump off sides five times a game on defense with our john. Randall and chris doleman and we were loaded and then he would would accept it because with those four or five offside penalties we hit you about twelve times in sack you six one of them would be a strip sack we sweet. We'd scored on teams all the time we. We might have led the league defensive touchdowns one of those years but even though we may have given up yards came out of the end zone force turnovers. We're gonna win. And then we were loaded with skill set so it made it easier but a team that right now that is an average team and below average because average would mean they'd be close to five hundred. Nobody thinks that maybe they do think they're going to be better than five hundred but even then if you will if you do what you did now it's not going to be easy against good teams but if you forced four turnovers go over ten. I'll bet you that the overwhelming statistic. Is you win the game back to. That was the fourteen team. They had twenty interceptions. And they had twenty three fumble recoveries their plus minus must have been off the charts. Yeah even average offensively. It was the average giving up. Nineteen points per game so you on that good side of. They had a lot better talent. They had a prime. Jj watt when immersed since they had a bunch of really good player so the moral to this story in this talk is defense is going to have to do this. 'cause you can while tyrod taylor protects the ball. There's gonna come a point time. The ball's gonna be on a turf for this team to protect it. Go get turnovers. Defensively keep close and give yourself a chance because if you force if they averaged a couple of turnovers they may not. But if they do and they've become that turnover type defense. The you know the overs common. I'm just telling you if they if they do what they did they. Yes if that's the way over. The i got news for you to mahomes. That new chan baker mayfield ghanouchi matt stafford. But he ain't russ wilson. It's going to be different but it's a good place to start. I'd rather be having this conversation. We know the roster looks like but they're still going after and getting turnovers and given themselves a chance. We'll hear more from david kelly We got stakeout out. Some fifteen tyrod taylor talked about the vaccination talked about third down offense and red zone defense with the quarterback. You're going to face you better. Damn well be really good. We'll.

They're too good for us to give an a hall pass to just a team that kind of just mills around there too good for that they know it and soda we k- we but also know that for us to panic. Oh my gosh. They only scored one run. After hanging twenty-seven sometimes there ain't a whole lot of gas in the in the back tank after you've thrown twenty seven and two games on team but now the key is come back they. They need to take care of their business. But i'm not giving them a hall pass for lapses in bad games and not for what whether it's like they played to the atmosphere like the smallest crab schools back in session to monday. That's historically the worst night in baseball. Attendance it's kansas city. There's a lot of excitement to go to that game. I get it but the next level is for them to treat it like it's forty thousand people and that's why it's frustrating. 'cause we watch we've watched basically four or five versions of this team always always take care of business against listing right for the most part right now the version we need to see is treated royals like this is the a wildcard single elimination game. Even though he got two great. You know what. I mean to to ramp that up so i'm not giving them all pass and i don't think dusty or their own teams giving them a hall pass so whatever it takes to ramp it up and recognize that cannot play down to competition. Find that team hall pass here but the other side is listen. Ten game win streak in aren't exactly like the yankees are on right now. Don't happen everyday. Nassar's it what are they have earlier this year. They have eleven game win strikes. of course they're not. It's just when you see it. We get spoiled and we are spoiled here. Three straight hundred season wins not counting. What the last year. Because he didn't have one hundred games but that this team listen you should expect them to play better on a nightly basis but the reality is sixty of them are sixty five. They're not and the other team sometime. This is what the the thing that drives me the most crazy as fans and metoo we we all do. It is and i know it's a it's a cliche statement but the astros the other teams get paid to these although the you look at the lineup but these guys were all major league baseball players. They're not just sitting there and say. Hey let's do a the you know matador and like at a bullfight. Say oh here come on man. Just take over and we'll let you run through and we'll kick our ass. They're not guys. Got some pride right. Even though they're not good. So i just. I'm not willing to give a hall pass. But i also know that. I'm not worried that they got beat by seven to one especially since a team. That's chasing him got beat to now. I'd like an extended lead. But i'm not going into the tank when they lose a game. There's things concern me. The trend has to yes nine eleven in the month right so there is a hall pass. I don't let's put it this way if you go and have winning months every month you're going to have a hell of a season if you win the money. Every month they had even in the three hundred wins seasons. They had one of those years where they didn't do that right and still one hundred games. Yeah that's my point so okay but but you. Can't you know a goal to. Hey win every month. You wanna win every series. When every month you went every month and you're five games over one month. Three games over the next one game before you know it. You've you're at one hundred wins in your dominating your division. They're not gonna get one hundred dollars this year. That's okay take care of the business. I'm more concerned about winning the division not playing a wild card and get into a point where you're hot going in last night. Didn't look like a world series team but that's okay so there's not a hall pass and they listen. You don't have to browbeat them to let them know that. Seven to one games against the royals and playing like that is unacceptable to them. It may be unacceptable. That's but i assure you it's unacceptable to them as well. Oh god there's no question about it. They don't you know what no player. That's another thing it's like going into a fight and the guy that you're supposed to destroy beat you like even if you're in the school years has got this guy you the bully comes in and all of a sudden the guy who's the dog knocks him out right. Yeah and and be like well and everybody schools got cut their hand over their mouth. Like you just asking. Yeah but he's been talking all the time. Now that the astros talking to get my point right and then you say not supposed to. And if you're that guy you said wall wait a second now that that can't happen twice and instead of what it's a boxing match when somebody gets upset or it's a football game listened the most the hardest thing in the world and i just use an example and then we'll come back and talk about the texans. We were playing. This is my freshman year at sc and we were undefeated number one team in america and i'm markus islands average to twenty a game or whatever was rolling stones concert at the coliseum only around just setting the scene for rolling stones concert the night before the field was brew their cigarette out. Are they schedule. That the night before rolling stone so you can imagine that right at the coliseum and we're playing the next day so it's there's like where there's grass there's a cigarette budgets can't get it all out. It's a day game day we're playing university. Arizona were heavy favorites. Nude first. play from scrimmage. Marcus allen goes with these are seventy five radio here on the two thousand five the twenty. We call called twenty-six flip. I'll never forget. I write twenty. We call it dot right. I dropped the i. Twenty six flip. Marcus stretches it. Like our student body right cutback touchdown i'm standing on the sidelines. We're four or five and whatever to six in the season. I look buddy. Experts in can't wait. I'm playing in this one. Two as a true freshman. Yeah we didn't score again. We kind of got even felt different. There's like a hazem when you walked out down the tunnel that day right. Yeah it was weird. It's like it doesn't feel right. And then okay you said after warm-ups you're going through saying come on. I know tom tunnicliffe university arizona. It may not be week kicking their ass just like we did everybody else up until that point national titles number one ranked team. We beat oklahoma and a close game. I mean everything's role and we got the heisman trophy runner. I'm thinking only rose bowl putting a ring life right. Yeah daschle titling did. I'll be damned. We don't score in. It was almost like a send. Okay i mark is going to run for three hundred the rest of the way and so they waltzed into our building in front of our families and kicked our ass and cost us a national championship. We did not win the national title right there at home in our building and it was like we were humiliated. So you go on and same thing here while it's not for now but a game that you're supposed to win and that's more pronounced because it's one game in eleven games but still they embarrassed. Even if you lose that you're still embarrassed. Even you know. The other team gets paid and other guys on scholarship. There's a party that says these guy should never be us if played them four times. Four or five times lost four of them right and so it's the same four okay. Four equals one football game right. Five games you feel in that. Now damn right you are and you're waking up today pissed and probably didn't sleep as well even though it's one game in the schedule your like now whole and then the next time you come out you put it on them and i would expect the astros whether it's this series of the next one to take care of it but that humiliation that embarrassment not only the fact that the embarrassment but you realize you're not gonna wear ringo less eighteen. Things happen along the season for somebody else. We get a chance. We got beat by an unranked team in our building. And we scored the very. First play from scrimmage and didn't score again and that ended it for us for the national title so when it comes to this you don't want that to happen in the postseason but there's that embarrassment and pride that goes with even those regular season screw this. They're not supposed to beat us tonight. And then tomorrow afternoon right. It's not just xs and os and this were just go out there and you gotta choke it out. There's no question. Sports talk seven ninety. David kelly tyrod taylor and the approach for the third preseason game from this team the records to know even if they get to three and it's how they get there that's going to determine what goes on necsports.

"Even more dangerous than than the containing tense. 'cause have nothing to lose right now. Pan loose odd. You could tell it here on this team. They don't strike out much and and play it out. You know it wanted to hold our driver flare one. So i've never an ear to that soft part scheduled. This gets team Hot in all right. So when he described he used to two sentences or two phrases. He said when they're they don't strike out much and they put the ball in play so it sounds like the ball club here. That's right we just imagine what it's like to be the opposing fan when you face this team than they do that and then oh by the way. They're actually better hitting than the royals and as we said on this forever. The the this lineup for the astros at it's come back to even though the names and kansas city's lineup aren't the same as the astros stardom wise but this is when you described the when the exhaustion for opposing pitchers and laboring and the constant stress. They're under when you're facing an astros lineup is like good gracious to its mentally exhausting. Let alone physically exhausting and dusty just described his own team when they're going well man don't strike out much. Imagine how you're talking if the other teams when you're when you gotta face the astros and they put the ball in play. And i know it's frustrating when you're used to that and the other team beats you which you best put the ball in play and the royals when they're doing this for whatever reason they seem to like to play the astros but thank goodness. You're not gonna have to deal with it but baseball once again. They're gonna win. What ninety five ninety three games to ninety three game somewhere in seventy three right. And i got forty games to go or something. I mean they're going to win mid-nineties. Probably think about this. Now think about this when you get to one hundred wins. That's a hell of a season. Yeah we watched them for three years of incredible. All right. So you've had some ups and downs this season struggles in the bullpen. All three at certain point the phases of the game. When i'm not talking about defense that's been pretty solid for the most part their base runnings been there is always a pain in the ass. They're not good at it but the other three big things have all three gone through phases of everybody questioning and a little bit of what's wrong hitting don't expect bullpen until they got it fixed last couple of days it's been a little bit of a struggle presley. Admitted he's always gonna this one's on me right hit a spot where you of course and then starting pitching which has been a a week and a half ago thought process was. It's the weakest link on the team now. At at the beginning we thought the depth of the starting pitching staff. But that's or keady healthy and from doing what he normally does and and so as you roll through it all three of hit it. They're still in first place. And i know it's more about the world series than just winning night division or win in the american league but we're not in the playoffs yet. So you've gotta get there. Think about it now. If they want one hundred one games everybody be like at the end of the year. If you didn't know what happened in one hundred and sixty two. And i so they one hundred one games. You'd say i had a good season and now you look. They win ninety four so six or seven games. Six games less than one hundred which has been when you hit one hundred. It's like could baseball team. They're not gonna be five hundred. Though is you have one hundred years. One hundred wins like i can think they had three straight hundred win teams. There was one of them. Know going into a postseason. I didn't feel good about all the twenty eighteen team. They want to hurt three hundred. Three games and ed great pitching staff but they went in with an offense was just like this hanes better than that team. Yeah especially hitting pitching was their starting better this hitting bolton and so's the hitting yeah right and so i when they're going good so for me it's like okay so you went ninety four games. Yes i understand that. It's not just one hundred. It's how you win them but to me if you look at said hey. The astros won ninety four games and then we look and seen them all and talked about every game this year. You're like damn that's a hell of a season. Considering the things the end we have to go through your battle and they've being your one of your best players and i know other teams have this excuse to and they're not making it. You know there you go through bregman been out for an extended amount of talk more knocks for him last and that's exactly right so he looks like he's getting close to being readily appears with their kiedis injury and the fromberg stuff in spring training. I mean there's so many you know what. I mean delayed more so i don't ever like to sell settle and i'll say i'll take ninety. I'll take a division title. They win two three off. Feel good about it and going into the postseason rolling the questions going to be. I mean the wait plan out. You'll likely play the white sox and that's a that's a. That's a television. At the moment you'd be the team wholesale advantage. I think is massively important. Victor question with that series but ended up being is redone. Good to go 'cause if he's good to go and he's health and he's good he's gotta be difficult to beat them. You feel good about your matchups against other teams but the oakland right now. We feel bad here in houston because they'd lose kansas city last. You wouldn't be oakland. They've lost three straight games where they had a lead in the eighth inning. They're closer right. Now is melting down and at the end of august into september and question at toronto team trainer. I'm just using an american league teams. Look what's happened to them. You could be the padres to go pitching and bad. I confess yeah. It's the all i confess did it. Oh when in doubt. Let's fix it on august. Twenty third right. Because remember that. Last time larry rothschild through pitch was unbelievable man. Remember that one. Yeah now. I understand when people say coaching matters. Does i can tell you this though. When you leave a curveball setting up in the morning fired the manager. I i would have done. I would fire the manager yesterday. The pitching coach going to do for you a little bit over his head right now. I think he's been over his head since he had the incident with fernando taty and he called out his player for celebrating a damn homerun. I have a buddy who is a diehard fan. Big baseball guy in san diego. he's in texas now but he's a lifelong padres game. We're talk because and the talk about him. Being over you know did maybe as lost the team a little bit and might not be. I mean this this man. I'm being facetious. Maybe be the front office. Says what are you going to do and this late in the season it is. I confess he did it. Save your ass move covering just is because he may be out on the scenes over to this is way this team's way to pack loaded yet. The responsibility accountability. We don't add players. Don't deserve a hall pass when because well pitching coach he's got. He's got a former cy. Young winner on his staff and blake's now has been asked all year canon issues. Been close to win one or did he win. One is close. So he's he's hovered around a hell of a pitcher so you're talking about a team going in that we didn't think pitching was going to be a weakness for all so here they are. You can blame it. On the pitching coach. Rino players better take a little bit of accountability to. I don't know how the relationship went but the pod. You could be the padres right now. Who are overwhelming along with the dodgers. The two best teams in baseball. Preseason more of the dodgers and padres in vegas and here they are. they're gonna miss the playoffs. The reds are going to roll right on in if this keeps up so that's the way it goes while the astros have much to improve on. It's a it's a good position to be in when you have played your best baseball guinness in many. Get them in and hopefully get a seed. That keeps you at home and in bingo. They play well. That roof will be close. Not doing their thing right. Yeah but the white sox you exactly right depending on their health in their starting pitching that's and they're gonna. They're hoping to turn around sports. Talk seven ninety. Hey the david kelly tyrod taylor. We get closer. We are getting closer to the season start. I would play david kelley's decision on what he's going to do with the lineup. This week. we'll discuss and why it's a good thing on sports. Talk seven hundred. Sean salisbury show continues.

I mean that's where the anna perino came from right. She was the white house. Spokesperson for So again the clown show continues and it continues and extends all the way over to the cdc years a doctor. That's a little too honest. dr lena win. He's the cnn medical analyst and emergency room physician at gw university. and the former. baltimore health. commissioner. Dr glenn good to see you simple question. Can you just explain if we're talking about these vaccines me. Why people who have been fully vaccinated can't just walk around like normal. Well here's what we know about these vaccines all three of these vaccines. That have been authorized. So far they are safe. They are extremely effective especially at preventing severe disease preventing hospitalization and death which is wonderful for protecting individual. There's growing evidence that getting the vaccines also reduce your likelihood of being a carrier. We don't know exactly how much this reduces that risk but it's probably substantially lower and that means maybe in theory you could be dramatic yourself but could infect others but that chance is still much lower and so that's actually why i wish that the cdc guidelines went a lot further than they actually did. Wow well what about. I know that on the point of travel. Because everyone's thinking i'm putting myself in that category all right whenever i get vaccinated that means i can finally really feel safe jumping on on a plane and going to see certain family members. The airline industry today is really pushing back against these new. Cdc guidelines that fully vaccinated. People should actually still avoid travel. Why is the cdc encouraging people who have been fully vaccinated not to travel. So this is one of these examples. Where i think the. Cdc is being far overly cautious in a way. That defies common sense. Because look at what they're saying about porn teams so they're saying that if somebody knowingly is exposed to an individual with cove nineteen and they're fully vaccinated. They don't need to test or get pouring tnd if you're sitting on a plane. You're not necessarily sitting next to people with kobe. Nineteen you're wearing masks keeping distanced and so it just doesn't make sense that you can't travel especially if you now can get together with loved ones. I think a lot of people are eager to see their grandkids. They don't necessarily live with. And so i now speaking of i mean not just grandkids. I mean we have like relatives in canada just across the border here. It's an hour hour and a half drive. We haven't seen him since covid and yet there are people pouring in the southern border untested. We can't go see my wife's aunt and uncle up here which is just it's criminal The road trip starts As soon as this afternoon tomorrow morning at the latest.

I think at some point both biden and kamla harris might come to decision that somebody who's call andrew cuomo and say. This is a distraction that we don't need and at the very least as wants and other people have said he'll just announced that he's not gonna run for another term all good point so where is whereas the vice president which is a pretty good question and this is escalating.

Will they get sympathy or criticism over in the states which loves the royal family. What do they feel about the couple. I think over here rating down by a party. The more conservative leaning people are against them and the more liberal people are for them and against the monarchy. So it's sort of the same today as it was yesterday. But i'll tell you just watching it myself and i was one of the people on the streets rooting them delighted that this was happening read. It was exciting She was in american. She's of color. Looked like the modernization of the british monarchy. The british people adored her. I saw them. I interviewed them. But what. I saw tonight with somebody who is totally unselfish aware. I mean completely unaware of how she sounded right like. I wasn't planning on saying anything shocking. Except for my husband's racist family almost drove me suicidal thoughts while i was pregnant with my baby and by the way i had no idea what the internet said about harry. Nobody believes that. And i thought meeting the queen was going to be just like meeting a celebrity los angeles like media kris jenner right like nobody believes that then she goes on to say like i'm not i don't i don't believe in any of the grand jury.

You've made it clear a number of times on this program a number of times understand that you've got a personal relationship with moat had one and she cut you off chain entitled to cut you off if she wants to how she said anything about houston she cut you off.

English neck broke the news to me and I, You know, I listened to WSB almost all the time when I'm in the car, But I happened to be on the way to a doctor's appointment.
