"Of ourselves in that. Is huge because those movies get like. Translated many many different languages and many people see them So there's there's a lot of power in that. Does it give you yourself hope that you can do the types of roles you WanNa do or do you think that they still have yet to be written for you? Patrick who? First of all, it depends on the day. 'cause I see characters on screen that I'm like you know not even I have like. One one of my lateen acts Community members could have done that too and it could have been incredible. But then also. You know the the dream would be like to have a show about Mexicans and they're all different they all look different. They all sound different because that's what it is and I think that. When we get to that. I think that's when we can fully celebrate and say, Hey, we've done it. You know you know what I mean I'm because I think that it's all. In right now, it feels like it's all Kinda like baby steps. And we're kind of like trying to get there but it still feels like baby steps because is race itself skin color an issue within Mexico. Oh, yes yes. One hundred percent. And you can even see the way the way like when the beat the Beautiful Lisa was nominated for the Oscar for Verma. People like bullied her online for the color of her skin like Mexicans did. You know that that says a lot and you know I think I think. It's part of the I opening time. We're in right now where we're able to say like, Oh, no racism is a thing everywhere. And there's many different kinds of racism as well. But for sure it happens in Mexico. Winner those times. And then we can even apply it to to theater and film and Winner, those times win race absolutely matters and you need to to to be cognizant of that and you need to honor that and what are those times when it shouldn't matter at all it needs to be the broad spectrum and race shouldn't play a factor. I don't. That's such. A good question. I just don't know if I'm the person to ask it to because I am white passing and I benefit from white privilege both in the US and in Mexico. I would. I would love to have the conversation as well, but I would I would. Love to have it with someone who actually? Ex- experiences racism. Or has experienced racism on a on a day-to-day basis. Income next week, that's actually what I'll be doing over the course of two episodes. I'm bringing back former guests of the podcast Hispanic actors, singers, and writers who share their own stories and experiences in this industry the good the bad and the ugly. The first episode will feature those who felt most comfortable telling their stories in English and we'll address issues like the one today or brought up about being Hispanic but passing for white. The second episode will feature Hispanic Artists telling their own stories in. Spanish. Now. Both episodes there will be no back and forth no QNA it'll be just them sharing from the heart. So. Please join me for that two part series with former when guests. As we finish up today's episode, I wanted to go back to that idea of honoring your heritage embracing where you came from I read a story of one well known act this summer who came to terms with his own heritage. Now, the name James David Rodriguez may not ring a bell to you, but if I said James were day. Then you'd recognize him as one of the CO stars in the hit TV show. His name change came early in his career based upon to audition the I was for the lead role in a major film. He had a great audition, but the casting director told him that he didn't think he could call him back because his last name was Rodriguez instead the casting director brought him back for the small part of a gangster. But after reading for that rule, he was told he didn't look Latino enough. That movie was primal fear and that lead role was eventually filled by Jordan. And it is essentially what launched his career. That second audition for James was for a role in a TV pilot produced by DreamWorks. The casting directors and producers were concerned because the role wasn't written four an Hispanic or Mexican. And they were also worried that the casting of a white guy with a Mexican name could be interpreted as their version of diverse casting and that they would be a reaction to that when I was. Given. The my first professional opportunity I always told, you know you might WanNa give some real consideration. Renamed. You don't look like. And this role is not Latino and then built a career. Slam is with a with a main. Wave Name. For twenty years he went by the name. James Day, which is the combination of his last name Rodriguez and Middle Name David. But in light of recent events, he felt he couldn't hide behind his made up of white name anymore. Operating humanity other Church Floyd. Once again. We as a society enforce to. Ourselves. They're going to be out there speaking. People of Color. I wanted I didn't WanNA. Be. Disingenuous. I didn't WANNA be. A facsimile. The person with A. Mexican last name. And this goes back to that idea today. Oh mentioned of being fully yourself and bringing all of you into the audition room and into your performance. And that is a lesson we can all learn regardless of our heritage. A big. Thank you again to today Oh Martinez for being on the podcast today and I greatly appreciate you joining us as well for this important conversation. As I mentioned next week is the English and Spanish episodes with former Hispanic guests of the podcast. Let's stay tuned up next for the final five with today. Oh, where he'll also talk about one of his favourite performances in the hilarious farce noses off until then I'm Patrick Oliver Jones reminding you that the reasons for not making it may be frustrating arbitrary. But the reasons to keep going our even more numerous and rewarding. Join me next time as we talk more about why I'll never make it..

"It's a lesson I'm still learning to this day. Will continue to learn. Just. Just letting go. While today Oh may have still been learning to bring his full self into auditions and onstage he was having a much easier time devoting himself to the betterment of his college experience and one clear example of this is when he was given the Availa Win Hey award, which is based on scholarship character and contribution to the SMU community. Yet it's a whole thing but a bunch of my friends I southern Methodist University we we went in at an interesting time because we went in freshman year sophomore year was the election. He's referring, of course to the twenty sixteen battle between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and we found ourselves having really interesting and vulnerable in hard conversations. Surrounding race gender stories are to tell what stories are not ours to towel and a bunch of us being people of color kind of started speaking out more and because I think. Bunch, Mike Class A bunch of my friends a couple other people in the. I sent you theater communities started having these conversations the school, the actual theater department at Smu was. Able to Kinda take a step back, actually think about their season what kind of shows they did, what kind of parts were available to students, how they handled those shows because that's also incredibly important. And yes. So so that so that was more because the the EVOLA. Hey or I don't really have a win. Hey, that one. was. For kind of helping do that in fighting for the Latino Hispanic community at. SMU. Theater program. As I mentioned at the beginning of this episode that desire to increase Latino and Hispanic representation in theater is a driving force of today's mission and purpose as an actor. One of the most shocking things me for me was that article that came out I think either last year about. The reports odds. LATINA CTS expanding actress in film in the US and it listed how many characters in these movies had been Latina cts had speaking parts. And it had like shocking like in all of the movies, only two movies had. A female at the over fifty. An NBA movies that. Was Jennifer Lopez. The study he's referring to was conducted by the University of Southern California in. Annenberg in coordination with the National Association of Latino Independent Producers and wise entertainment. The full study was called Latinos in film erasure onscreen and behind the camera across twelve hundred popular movies. It's a fairly dense study with a lot of statistics covering the top one, hundred movies each year from two, thousand, seven to two, thousand eighteen. But one of the stats that stuck out to me is that the Latino community comprises twenty three percent of the movie tickets sold yet only three percent of these movies featured a Latino lead or co-lead. It was analyzing the way that Latinos where being portrayed and it was this whole study that was that also wanted to see. The. Correlation between that and how the community saw themselves. And so how it spin proven that if a community sees itself represented as rapists and drug lords. Gardeners than although stereotypes that there. That's that's what they think of themselves. ASS and it's I I find that it's been slow. It's been slowly progressing in the US because I was in Mexico. So then being an American being like, oh. My God all of big. Projects and no one is giving no one's giving a voice. No one's giving time to let the next actors is heartbreaking. And it's A. IT'S A. Line because you because you WANNA challenge in the new also WANNA. Celebrate on. Then you want to celebrate the films like in the heights that's bound to come out and you WANNA celebrate TV shows like V., in Los Bookies and all of these beautiful shows that are like actually challenging society and forcing them to look at us. But then you also Kinda like WanNa be mad in fight for more in demand for more it's a very strange time, but it's I. Think it's also very beautiful time that hopefully brings forth just a lot of growth and change. And for you personally, obviously, the US tender for people you'll get ten different answers but for you, what does that representation mean? Does it mean that? Let's an annex and Hispanic. People Are Presented as themselves and you're telling those particular stories and those were coming to the forefront or is it that oh? These are just people going about their business and they happen to be. Hispanic. Is there one that is kind of pushed more than the other? I mean I personally want to seek more of both. Because I think that the fight is a lot of. Lettuce tell our stories but then I think there's also power in like having a little. Mexican on human be able to like watch marvel movie and have one of the superheroes be Latina. And speak in Spanish you know 'cause and speaking to that you know like Chad Chadwick. Bozeman. Yes. Exactly. He rest in peace. It was so interesting to hear because I saw the you know people talking about his movies and this is you know interviews back when he was alive but but they were just talking about how amazing it was and I mean the movie dwell anyway, it was a great movie. Your it also gave such representation of. A black person being a superhero someone to look up to and and then he's like one of many superheroes exactly and this is something that and I'll just speak for white people of my own experience. But I think we don't often think of seeing yourself on stage or on screen and it and it reflecting or being something that means something to you. Because it's like, oh. Yeah. I would love to audition for that or oh yeah I could play that role but for someone where they don't see themselves onstage or onscreen to finally see that that face or that voice it's like Oh. Oh, I I can do that I can be that exactly a hundred exactly and I also like I wanNA I WANNA CELEBRATE And honor. Chadwick Bozeman but also that it was just one superhero like how many marvel superheroes have there been how many of them have been blocked to select the I. Think. So I I yes. So so my my frustration is for Latino work and it's also for black right because we need more both of them and more Asian work in more Middle Eastern work and I. I think we just need more diversity all around so that Those communities specifically in America but also the world has a lot of us get like even Mexico. We see a lot of American film. That's kind of what we got. We have gorgeous incredible Mexican cinema, but we also get all of the American. Movies and all the US movies that premier over there I'm just seeing more.

"Yes and you know and sometimes I took it in sometimes I didn't. oftentimes, it was out of fear or. And or China's or feeling out of place It goes back to Kinda like understanding the stories that are. That we should tell or that we should leg. Let someone else tell. So yeah. I had a I had a lot of meetings with a lot of different professors talk about issues that I had And I found out that a lot of it was also. Easier to talk about that actually do because we're also working for system and you know when professors or when a company is casting a show they also have. Different things they need to consider whether or not it's a company whether or not. Someone like in student situation whether or not someone needs to be cast I. Like you have this certain amount of seniors in? So kinda like standing that as well. It was really big for me understanding that it's it's way easier said than done but also having the conversations at least allowed the door to open up a little bit more. Mum. And invite a little bit of changing, which is a we can hope for ya I've found that that's one interesting thing when it comes to colleges in that that kind of hierarchy of well these are seniors. So we need to they've been in the program for years we need to give them some priority, your freshman. So you just need to be in the ensemble or whatever, and so there is that an certainly depends on the size of the school, but it's one of those things where. I, I understand why colleges are doing it but I also disagree with the fact that if you really really want to prepare someone for this job for this business, you can't be giving a role to a senior just because there is senior you need. To if look if that eighteen year old knocks the pants off the twenty year old coming in. You know then they need to get it, it doesn't matter that the junior has been there for three years I. Mean I agree with that too and it goes back to whatever the university policies but also you can't like I. If if if you're also GonNa have that rule you at least Scott stick to it. Do it sometimes and men when it's convenient for you like. Kinda like shuffle the cards a little bit 'cause. Then you're going 'cause then you're gonNA have issues. Yeah. A A crappy rule can be a crappy rule as long as everybody has to abide by it. Yes. That's how it is. But one crappy rules are subjective. Then that's no good for it. It's it. It becomes the little heart. Did you find yourself 'cause you've mentioned as far as being lighter skinned, but yet being fully Mexican of course did you feel like Oh that just opened me up to more roles or did that complicate any of the rules you go out for? I think it complicated a little bit because I even feel pigeonholed I just felt like I felt like they didn't know what box to put me in. Until. We. But here's the thing. I. Would I also cannot complain because I was always I always had the privilege. Of. Being of being cast I, was I always had. Quote Unquote Work in college. So, I was always kind of taken care of I always felt supported road But when it came to taking that next step going from the crappier roll onto the okay I'm ready for like a little more dialogue. Now, that's when things became a little bit tricky 'cause. I'd see my friends who were getting cast with me Kinda like take the next step in GATT and getting better and better roles and I would still. Kinda like stay in the back. On. And I was like, I just don't like I'm I'm trying really hard I don't I don't know what's. Again, that's just also the business like you try. Really hard. Not, always go your way man but in your case, did that feel like Oh maybe I'm not as as good as I need to be maybe I need to train more work harder or did it feel like, Oh, I'm just in this kind of racial. Ambiguity that they don't know what to do with. It was a little bit of both but I put I I kind of like. I'm on myself because I, I also didn't want to be the guy who is like I am not cast and it is because of this I want I kinda wanted to take responsibility for it. So for me that meant like I think I just need to work I think I just need to class I just I need to be better but I found that it wasn't until. I brought all of me into the room and that meant. Like choosing a piece in Spanish in standing by it, I'm bringing. My full identity into the callback. That's when I started to see results and for you what did that mean to bring your full self in what was the the noticeable change from before and after that? I felt like I was trying to put on this persona of what I would either see my classmates do or see my professors do because that's also that was also part of the beauty of college. I would like have a lesson from from a professor in than like be able to go and see him or her on in a production like in the Dallas community. and seeing them like practice what they preach that was also. A really big gift, but then like trying to. Copy that or trying to or like. Seeing one of my classmates be praised and saying that's good acting I need to do that exactly like that. in figuring out that I don't need to do that. I can just be myself 'cause that's where the best work lies I'm for each and every actor. And when I mean bring all of the remaining like for example, when a director says celebrate instead of going Hippie Kiei I I go. Get Wind biddle so like actually celebrating how I would celebrate and. That's and that's when I started not only growing the most as an actor but hot like actually loving the work as much as I thought I would if that makes sense. Because it sounds like you were able to to be fully present for. Having to hide behind something and like here's here's the facade. Here's the mask. Here's here's what I'm going to show you, and that mask is only a portion of it a portion. And so the rest of you was hidden back, I think that. I mean I know that for myself that's something. Excuse me that I've had to battle because I so often walk into the audition room and I want to give them what they want rather than give them what I have. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes and also. I think giving yourself permission to to do that is is so hard. Because, of course, of course, you want to get the job everyone wants to get the job But it's so so it's really I think it's really hard to believe that. The character is already inside of you you Kinda always feel like you have to put something on when that is i. find that that's not really often the case. And even like like going into professional work. I found myself having to wait until someone else gave me permission in order to bring all of me into the room on. So it's it's.

"Me. But then moving to Dallas Wings, the United States And be and then being the only one no. At the time I was the only Mexican or only international. Mexican. In the program then that created a whole other sense of otherness. I did some digging and found that today was only one of a handful of Mexican students at Smu. In the year of his graduation, the twenty eighteen nineteen school year, the international enrollment was one, thousand, five, hundred, ninety, six students, which comprised fourteen percent of total enrollment there at southern Methodist University. But from Mexico specifically, there were only fifty students. Now much like Bianca mother keen today Oh grew up learning both English and Spanish. So while he did have a smooth attensition than some coming to America and going to college that didn't mean that language and communication was easy for him. So in your classes and what you're learning, what was the biggest hurdle or challenges for you to start to pick up so that you didn't feel as behind or you know to kind of catch yourself up where you thought you should be. Ice Well I started kinda working a little harder than I had to. In the sense that. Whenever I would kind of like struggle or feel behind I would kinda just translated into Spanish whatever the situation. Whether that was like seeing or like personal dilemma and just kind of like translating it into Spanish, because a professor said it best when she said, you know academically, you're comfortable speaking English in in Spanish but like personally vulnerably, you've only ever had to speak in Spanish. So, kind of being able to. Be Be made be aware of that and use that in a way to help me. I found was very was kind of like the kind of like the golden ticket in what way does the the Spanish language give you away to I guess to be more open or vulnerable in that the English language doesn't I think because whenever? I just in my personal life whenever I have a problem whenever I feel a certain type of way. I go about it in Spanish. So I either discuss it in Spanish I think about it in Spanish I. Write I, write about it in Spanish An English was always Kinda like my Language was very fortunate on went to a school that was Kinda like eighty percent in English twenty percent in Spanish. So I would speaking English all day. So in class, I'd be like the answer is four and then I turned my friend, it'd be like this. So, personally, I was always speaking Spanish so I think. I think it was mostly that the fact that I was at USA speaking about personal things in English and it wasn't us. It's almost like there's this line between the two. Yes exactly. Even now I, feel like I'm I'm blabbering and. I'm like, what are the words but even in personal situations as well like having 'cause you know in enacting class, you'll go up and then you'll talk and then the professor will often ask you something very, very vulnerable about yourself just having to articulate it in English I. Don't know why became like the hardest thing is, is that something that is English taught a lot in Monterey specifically I I mean I I was very privileged to go to to go to school where I learned it at school. So some schools, offer it not all schools offer it. But then also, I also had the the benefit of going to theater school in having an entire class dedicated to like accents and dialects. So. I'm also like I kind of like. I feel like I cheated a little bet. Well well, well, no, it's the same way I. I grew up in the south and that's a very distinctive accent and my mother I don't sound anything like her or most of my my relatives you know my my accent is like not even there. There's like a few words were pops out but do you find that you can like tap back into it easily? Yes. I know that I can. But it's interesting. There was one audition where you know they needed some from Alabama as I raise my hand. and. He's like Yo that doesn't sound right. Well. This is this is what it is. This is I mean I mean I mean I think they wanted something stereotypical and speaking of of stereotypes is that something that you than found it's like Oh will you need to be this kind of Mexican or need to speak Spanish or English in this way? Yes, one, hundred percent and it's it again because I don't look like the stereotypical Mexican that we often seen portrayed on television or film or whatever. A lot of times people had trouble of like placing me. So then it became a whole existential crisis because I was like anti like M. I. Mexican enough to be thought of as Mexican in the industry do I have to like? Am I gonNA get the chance to play these parts. There was there was actually auditioned that I didn't college and the director was young and she is learning to on but I was going up for this Latino part and she and she asked me she came up to, can you do an accent? And I was like. Yes. But can can we talk about this because there is meant lake. A Mexican. Accent of Puerto Rican accent like there's many different accents and dialects and even within Mexico than Mexicans. Yeah Right. That's like do you want a hyok son? Do you want us the other Mickey Cracks? and she was just like just give me anything. and. That was a whole other kind of like conversation to. Make myself comes dribbling. Because you, you don't WanNa kind of a you don't want to be disrespectful. But be you WANNA make they're putting on his show. So they're gonNA THEY'RE GONNA. Put this on stage for other people to see. So you also want to be of assistance to the peace and the character in your journey through college than did you find there was a lot of these kind of teaching moments where you are in a position to then be this voice of Hey, this is something you.

"You finally get to see wicked? Oh my God I i. saw it when I was I think in the sixth grade. and. That's also a big moment where I was like I, if I can do anything like that I WANNA do it. it was a big. It was a big moment for. So. Yeah. So I decided to to pursue it professionally and right about the same time. A professor from smu Bernard Cummings who I? Oh. Many many many things to Came to visit my school because he was visiting a friend who taught there. and. We were doing like production of Pippin and he saw me in rehearsal and invited me to audition for the program and everything Kinda just like. unraveled. In a in a way that I didn't. Intend to or be expected to. So then this pretending this listening to wicked all lay down the groundwork for this professor from Smu to finally see you. So what was that audition process like because I assume you hadn't done a lot of auditioning up to that Piney had note but it actually it was on the spot Patrick. So like after rehearsal he was like, do you want audition and I was like Yes sure and then the day that we were set to do it I, remember it to This Day sky fell in Monterey like it has never rained that hard. In So I called my drama teacher and I was like Hey Please apologize to this man profusely because I am I'm just I cannot leave my house and he was like it's fine. So we were we rescheduled for another day I went in with a monologue I found online I typed in monologues. On Google. I found one. Had A lot of words. It had a lot of words and you memorize them I did I went in and I I. Did I did the best that I could and he was very kind and then he was like, do you have anything else? And I didn't. So I was like I can. Still I can give you my longest line from pippen. And I can make it very dramatic. And he was like, okay and then he was like diva song can you can you sing a song and I was like I can sing a song from pippen? And I did dead men two weeks later he emailed me shockingly and was like hey. He was. That must've been surprising because your wish look yes. Like what did I do to earn this? I had I legitimately could not believe it. I was like I don't vape like are they do they need divert like my my mind went to like doing diaper city points like I get it. and so when you've got to SMU, did it make more sense? Did you feel like okay, this was the right place or or did you feel behind anyway? I totally felt behind. But everyone there was A. When I got there going there was really kind in patient and it was also like because I grew up in Monterey like really close to the border. I kinda grew up between both cultures like I grew up being Mexican. But like a lot of the people that were around me are either dual citizens or Americans or Canadians. So I kinda. I. Kinda didn't expect. Expected to feel different I only expected it to feel different in terms of Oh everyone's been doing theater their entire lives except for me. But when I got there. Also was not the case at all. So there are other newbies there. Yes. There were other newbies. Culture shock it was more like a culture. Burn. I like to say. A lot of things. Were are very severe, very similar but then a lot of things I would be like. Oh. That's different. Owed sense of humor is different and it was it was strange if it's interesting, the previous has Bianca monarchy in she. She mentioned the same thing about born and raised Mexico. Pathan crossing the border to go to school and so she kind of got both cultures and started to feel at home in both. As you say that it wasn't so much the culture shock. It was just being in a new environment of learning something that you were still basically at the beginning stages of yeah. Yeah and it also it kind of felt like I grew up in this bubble which I basically did. Because everyone around me, everyone I knew was either Mexican American Canadian. It was very sheltered and Ben I. I'm living in like I'm living with other artists and I'm living in Dallas cinema living in Texas, which is a whole other experience. So. Yeah. It was just really it was a very Uncomfortable time but I think it was there was beauty in the uncomfortableness of it and in what ways was it uncomfortable to you just dealing with with topics that I. Had never dealt with personally just like academically dealing with talking about racism talking about being vulnerable in front of other people having conversations about. Stuff that's real and in the real world but had never been. Kind of at that present in my day to day life does that make sense? So he kind of like having my eyes opened in a very real way. And going through things Kinda like. Not only made me understand my privilege but also understand. Race, in America, racing in the world immigration in America and just having my is be open to all these things in a very personal way. Was a little jarring. because. In coming to Dallas, did you feel that sense of otherness that you didn't feel? Like oh I mean I feel like, I kind of. Felt otherness. All the time just because I'm Mexican but I'm I'm I'm quite in complexion I'm very, very white passing on. So there was. So there's always the issue of of either what is he? Is He Mexican? Enough. So that was not new to.

"Do not remember how this happened. I. Just remember this to woman is older woman pudding hit that which is like a Candy, so good. She put it on the spirit and she shoved down my throat and she was like ours ours and I was like, oh and. That's how I learned that sounds like torture though. No, I. Will, yes, I'm sure it was. But now I just think of sponde- because of the GECKO. Because it probably was very tasty six. Yes. But even though we had lessons and learning and perfecting the rolling of his ours. Today, you didn't have as much experience or practice being on stage that took him a little while longer to learn. I. Mean growing growing up in Monterey like I didn't really know anything I remember going into dishes like having to figure out what a monologue even was. Like I'd yeah I'd never I'd never even like audition before outside of high school. I wouldn't even go up for like a community theater things here in. Monterey. Because I was so shy like afraid of it and and there are there are a lot of local productions that happened or is it mostly a touring or traveling production that come into the city now it's both when I was growing up there were like. One or two regional productions a year kind of a community theatre. On now, they've like bill to this theater, and now like turing shows come through the arts culture among the night it's growing, but it used to be the not at all. So then with that limited exposure to it, what made you think, oh well, then I I wanNA pursue that even though I don't really see it around me. I was my mom was a dancer. So I was at around kind of like. Growing up my mom. Dance for fourteen years. A Gorgeous Gorgeous Dancer and what about Your Father? Well, first of all, my dad is like ten years older than my mom. He had a previous marriage like he had life. He had a life. He's ten years older. They met in a bar but my my dad is like first of all, he's a trooper because he liked his kid like his young son to play rehearsal. And then like drive him to go look at Cardi's with him, and I would literally make up words for different parts of the car because I did not know what they were. So it's weird and then like my sister is very My sister is like. She's younger than me, but she's a she's going into psychology. So she's very alike interested in like little kids. I have three half brothers who like I see some like it's Patrick it's wear. It's very Mexican. And then like my mom's side of the family. It's just her and her younger brother and I, and it's like four cousins in general and then my dad's family he's the youngest of five and all of them habit least five kids. So. It's gotten to the point where like I? Don't know WHO's my cousin and who or WHO's my niece or WHO's. like those family reunions, I they make me sweat. So my family's all over all over the place. So then your mother being a dancer, does she dance professionally or was this something that she did on the side or she was a dance teacher and then she also danced like she liked dance professionally but she did a lot of contests through like the play she taught at. but growing up I have memories of well first of all, she she I think she was a dance teacher while she was pregnant with me, which may have like maybe psychologists listening to this will explain to us how that affected me. But are you dancer I mean not really but like I'm Latino so I can move my hips. But like not really. So, yeah. But I have memories as a kid like going to watch her teach dance costs like sitting on the side and stuff. Yeah. Yeah. So you were around artistic people. Yes. Like my on my Dad's side love to saying in dance when my aunt loves theater. So like I my FA- like they're so much family patrick that like someone had to be artistic because there's so many people. So. You've never felt like the black sheep or the percent yes. Oh okay. One hundred percent. because. I'm the first one to actually do it for a living and the first one to be like, I'm going to go abroad and be a working actor I'm there are like what you can do that it's like don't you want to fix the cars yet like are you sure? Are you sure you don't want to sell something I certainly know for myself I tried those nine to five. When I was living in Orlando Florida in fact, I even sold cars for a couple of months. But whether it was sales or retail or office jobs. None of them really seem to fit I think most actors from a young age have that creative spark and energy that isn't easily contained, and usually we can point it all back to a particular show or a moment when we caught the acting bug, this is weird but I was obsessed with. That's so raven on Disney channel I was obsessed with Raven Simone. And, when I learned that, I could do something like that or do version of that in theatre. 'cause my version of doing that was high school productions and stuff. I was awful. I was like, yes I wanNA be like Raven. So, that that's so today Oh got so bellio yet. So that's literally how it started. And then I found Peter Man I just started researching. Musical Theater Broadway shows, and then later on, you know started to read a couple of more plays and I just became fully fully fully obsessed with it. I was not that popular as a kid. So it was I also had a lot of time. To obsess over. Yeah Yeah believe me I was I was at home a lot during a lot of pretending and and watching TV shows and singing along to two albums or what? Was Your go-to album like what what what would you single on okay. We'll see I was back whenever I was a kid. I think it had come out years before I was born, but but it was something that my mother had and so when I was like seven, eight, nine, ten, I was listening to an actual LP record of the hobbit. There was an animated feature that had been done and they had basically at the whole movie onto the it was all the dialogue, all the different songs and music that would come in and I would listen to it obsessively I would imitate the voices I would sing along with the songs everything. That is incredible. That was one thing that I absolutely loved. So for you like, what did you listen to for me? It was wicked. Like a hundred percent. But not because I necessarily seen it, I had because I had a cousin who had seen it. And she was like there's this show. It's about the wicked witch of the West Lola. So I found the album and I would. I would just listen to it and I became I would make my friends watch youtube videos of Adina Menzel singing defying gravity kristen China was like they I. I'm shocked they're still my friends to this day because they just don't care they were not interested. But they would sit through the entire thing as a good friend. Especially, if they're not in the arts at all one, hundred percent, the fact that they know defying gravity as I I'm very proud of because it's a it's my doing well, well, yeah I think wicked was the Hamilton of its time. It was kind of everyone knew what wicked was even if they didn't know Broadway theatre per se. And Hamilton is kind of that way too many people know the album or the music. Show it's very true and so was it. When did.

"Welcomed or guest today, Hector Baretto Hector form headed up the United States. Small Business Administration today. He's the chairman of the Latino Coalition. Thanks for waking up early with us. Do this actor thank you in our Co host Laura Collins, once again. Welcome back, Laura. She's the director in the Bush. Institute smu Economic Growth Initiative thank you. Thank Santa I. Only wake up early for this I know we. To Peel back the curtain we're here at about seven thirty in the morning in Dallas and Lauren I were comparing notes and turns out that one of us are morning. People so hector. We're looking. We're looking at you. Demand on. West Coast time. It's like five thirty in your body clock Oh. That's rough. Hector's here for our SME Economic Growth Advisory Council where he is one of them. Is that help guide the policy work that we do at the Bush Institute, because both of his expertise is the forty first administrator, the small business, and because his work with the Latino Coalition. Let's start with the former when you were with the small business administration. What was the goal of that department? What were you? You, all working on the small business. Administration was actually started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three by President Eisenhower and there were some small business programs before that, but they unified those all into one agency, and it's really the agency that supports and advocates for America's small businesses, and that role has become even more important over the years when they formed the SBA. There probably weren't thinking that was going to be over thirty million small businesses in the united. United States and I like to say nothing small about small business. They really are the engine of America, the engine that fuels the economy of America not only are there a lot of them, but they represent over fifty two percent of the gross output of the economy. It's the place that two-thirds the net new jobs of our economy comes from, and it's also the place that a lot of our innovation comes from. That makes us the envy of the world. World in terms of our economy so very very important agency. A lot of people have heard of it, but they oftentimes don't know everything it does. Where does your passion for Small Business? Come from a well? That's easy. I was fortunate to be born into an entrepreneurial family, so the first business owners I ever met where my mother and father and my father was especially a serial entrepreneur. He loved business. He loves starting businesses. I'm not saying he loved running. My mother ran the business ideas, man yeah, but I learned a lot about a small business I used to joke that everything I learned about business. I learned in a Mexican restaurant because that's why I worked when I was a little kid. What jobs is you? Hold with your parents Oh, a lot of them, you know we were an immigrant family and. There was five children. My mother had five children six years. I have four younger sisters, and so we were all recruited to my father's executive training program very early on, so we all had to work I remember waiting tables when I was nine years old. So And then I. as I got older, I got more responsibility and help run some of those businesses and start some of those businesses, and my father had a number of different businesses. We started off with the restaurant business, because that's an easy business to access, but then later on at a little import export business, a little construction business, none of those businesses wherever really large, but they were very important to our family helps support us. They helped educate, and we learned a lot about being in business and working with the community and customers, and so your father came to America start these businesses. He actually didn't. My father was an immigrant to the United States in the late nineteen fifties. I don't think he was planning on staying that long. But he met my mother. My mother is also from immigrant parents from Mexico they've shown love, and and of all places they started their journey in Kansas City Missouri that's where I was born. I grew up in Kansas City Missouri and my father. He had a lot of different jobs as a lot of immigrants do when they first get here. His first jobs were picking. Picking potatoes for fifty cents an hour in rural Missouri and later on, he worked at a railroad, a literally pounding the spikes into the ground, but in the winter it got too cold, so he moved into He started working in the livestock business, and it was very difficult. dirty work. He was cleaning out stalls, but at least it was warmer than being outside. When he was working at the railroad later on he, he was a janitor at the school that I would eventually go to, but my father used to always say that he was a business owner, and I would say dad. You have these jobs. You're not a business owners. They know what I have to do right now, but eventually alone my own business, so he was very passionate about that. He always wanted to work for himself, so he starts so then he starts these businesses and his career trajectory starts trending too so far up that start happening. Yeah, my father was a very visionary leader very. Very charismatic you know he when he's grown up used to say know. I came here with nothing I didn't know anybody. I didn't speak the language. I had no money I had no power, but I believed in myself I was willing to work hard, and this is such a great country that affords us the opportunity to go as far as we WANNA go. We're only limited by our own imagination our own commitment, so he he's. We started these businesses, but later on my father was kind of an organizer as well, and he wanted to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. This is in Kansas City. Number of others spanning businesses. There were there at the time, and my father started asking. Where's the Hispanic Chamber? And they said well. There isn't an Hispanic Chamber. My Dad said well there should be, and if nobody else is going to start it, I will so my father was one of the founders of the Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, that was in the mid seventies,

"School of business at SMU but tells me he's now teaching remotely so we has time to talk to us about these competing story lines but a very good evening to natural gas and oil the demand was soft because of China and then the competition between Riyadh and Russia but who are the shale guys that the Russians wanted Gavin how do they plan to get them good evening to you good evening John I called M. shale guys because the pioneers who developed the hydraulic fracturing to tease gas and oil molecules out of shale we're we're primarily wildcatters they were were they were small independent companies and production is still mainly by the independence yes you do have majors are working in the oil patch in the gas tax right now but for the most part it's been small and medium sized companies that have boosted our output from the shale plays and and maybe this is the number one oil and natural gas producing country in the world but as you mentioned there there are some clouds on the horizon I mean it's a pretty dark clouds right now we do have the slowdown in China that precipitated a drop in global demand for oil then you have this incipient price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia and the Russians to set out right that we welcome a price war we want to boost output because we want to drive though show guys out of business and then kind of another way I may use the circle but nineteen which is kinda shut down the global economy in turn reducing the demand for oil and all forms of energy and then on the supply side you've got a glut so short term things are looking pretty ugly for oil and natural gas and not just in the United States but around the world in fact oil West Texas intermediate closed below thirty dollars today for the first time I believe since twenty thirteen and yet capitalism you right at the hills your column in the hill that the shale guys the frackers and the big oil guys the people with a fossil fuels adapt how so about they've done in the past and you believe they'll do it again oh absolutely I think what Russia doesn't understand is that our energy industry and particularly the shale guys operating in the Permian basin of West Texas and the Marcellus in the northeast or tremendously adaptable they've been there before the prices cratered in twenty fourteen to twenty fifteen and yes there was some blood letting bankruptcies and the like but highly leveraged companies went out of business but those that have better balance sheets were able to grow to consolidate there were a lot of acquisitions and indeed the industry emerge stronger than ever I think it's it's it's very significant that that date just to give you an indication of how efficient these guys are yeah we're producing twice as much oil and gas as we were a decade ago with half the number of rigs so it's not going to be pleasant the next couple of months is going to be another shake out there will be more bankruptcies but I'm confident that the industry will emerge stronger than ever then at the same time we need to keep in mind that big oil companies you know the Exxon's and chevron's and be peace of the world well they may reduce their capital spending they're not going to pull up stakes and some other big projects deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico so I guess my bottom line is that yes there's going to be paying in America's oil patch this year but if past is prologue the industry is going to re emerge stronger than ever and that that the Saudis and the Russians I think they're going to drive the U. S. industry and especially the sale guys out of business they're sorely mistaken remember the Saudis tried to do that twenty fourteen and they learned the hard way that it just didn't work you report that demand for natural gas the products of the frackers is going to double by twenty fifth twenty fifty that's that's very impressive what why is it so popular what's he doing natural gas is really the fossil fuel of the future the most projections see oil demand peaking maybe around twenty thirty five but the demand for natural gas is going to continue to grow at least for the next fifty years and the reason they as they were using more natural gas around the world for electric power generation is being substituted for coal and that's great for the long term and scraper industry and and it's also good for the environment to the extent that it we substitute clean burning natural gas for dirty coal that's a good thing but the environmentalists the green energy people I speak against natural gas why I'm not sure John I think they've come to the perspective that all fossil fuels were equally bad whether it's coal oil or natural gas we got to keep it all on the ground because when you use any of those is a boiler fuel you release greenhouse gases and they even acknowledge that greenhouse gas emissions from natural gas are much lower than they are for cold much lower than they are for oil but none the less the conditions of their perspective and they've lump that in with with with other fossil fuels and say we got to get off of all forms N. F. and I don't understand it because in the long term we're gonna need all forms of energy we're gonna need renewables we're gonna need nuclear and we're gonna need natural gas we can't have a clean energy future that does not include natural gas because there's no way we can satisfy growing global demand for power just from renewables we just can't do that to return to the show guys so the contest to head a show down at the edge of town between Russia and its accounts renewable I believe you said that they've stored up their treasures in heaven more than five hundred billion dollars to ride out the price war with Riyadh versus the shale guys and you're betting on the show guys today quick again is that correct yeah I'm betting on the show guys when I'm really betting on his American ingenuity the the free enterprise capitalist system transparency the fluidity of capital the ability to recapitalize the ability to buy assets that have declined in value that improves your balance sheet I mean all the things that make our economy work are going to keep the shale guys in business and it's not gonna be pleasant for the next couple of months right but I I would predict by the end of the year you know the the the shed shell in the energy industry in general will be back in business and indeed after this coronavirus thing is over we're going to see a huge increase in the demand for energy and that's great news we found a pot.

Sanders becomes No. 1 target for moderates after Nevada win
"When it comes out the state of the country you voted for that candidate by the way we don't think the candidate should be the nominee I think that would be a serious serious problem for the Democratic Party and I think it will wreck havoc all on that person's campaign you think there is Bernie Sanders talking about the idea the Democrats don't like him being the front runner right now and now he turns his attention to yet another debate tonight in South Carolina where he will likely be the punching bag gag spect he's going to be the one of the big target on him it was Bloomberg last time and Bernie may be counting his chickens SMU political scientist cal Jillson joins us live now to talk about all this is really getting interesting isn't a cal it is getting interesting and I think tonight in that debate in South Carolina they did pummel Bloomberg I think they'll keep doing that but now they've got a focus on Bernie as well because if you were able to get by Biden and win South Carolina that would put him into super Tuesday where we vote on March third along with thirteen other states including California with a lot of momentum he would be would be hard to stop sell Biden's gotta be demand in South Carolina and I think by a significant margin not just squeak by I heard something on my way into work this morning that Bernie said is already looking ahead to the general election where he puts himself against the president and he said the numbers show that he could beat the president well there are a lot of numbers out there and and they shift around a little bit but I was looking at exactly that yesterday in Texas and and nationally and you know Bernie Sanders does beat trump in head to head general election polling more often than not but three or four point something in that range and and trump leads team in Florida and and and is very close within two points in Wisconsin and Michigan where trump one last time to put him over the top so Bernie is right that a lot of polls show almost any Democrat beating trump but I wouldn't put a lot of stock in that this far out trump is going to be a strong candidate it'll be a close race it's not the Bernie couldn't win but a lot of Democrats are now running ahead of trump and national polling talk with political scientist cal Jillson that SMU there was an opinion piece in The New York Times yesterday by David Leonhardt that caught my attention he is arguing that Bernie is making a huge mistake by not reaching out to the voters beyond his passionate base that he needs to broaden his base and start to try to attract more moderate Democrats you agree with that yeah I saw that column by Italy on hard in fact he was on the SMU campus I think maybe maybe Monday so he's a smart guy and and it's certainly true that than the standard campaign approach would be to try to build out from your most passionate supporters in into the middle generally if you're the front runner particularly if you think you're gonna win the nomination you can start early to build out toward the middle that's that's standard advice but Donald Trump show that that a committed passionate base even if you don't try to build it out toward the middle particularly can can take you all the way so I I agree with with Leon hard data that Bernie would be well advised to be a little less passionate little less playing role playing a Barnes little less focus on democratic socialism and a little bit more on what sort of more moderate Americans want and that's a group of people that worry about him on health care for all and free college John paying off college debts that kind of stuff is mostly campaign rhetoric but a lot of voters don't make a distinction between what a candidate says to get elected elected and what they're gonna be able to do if they get elected we're talking to SMU political science professor cal Jillson I guess after last week's performance Mike Bloomberg has nowhere to go but up right I think that's right he was a deer in the headlights and Elizabeth Warren in particular pounded him hard early he did recover a little bit in the second half of that that debate but he has spent a good bit of time this week preparing for the debate that will occur in South Carolina tonight in fact he canceled an appearance in fort worth in order to be able to spend more time on debate preparation I expect him to be a little more energized now he's the sort of calm guy but he'll be a little more energetic than he was last time and hopefully he will have figured out sort of one sentence to sentence rejoinder to the questions he knows he's going to be asked about harassment in those kinds of things finished it is passed

"What the hell is a caucus because I will talk is comes around world water Gaza different from a primary houses work joining us to talk about it is SMU's cal Jolson so in simplest terms cal what's the biggest difference between a primary and caucus well in a primary it's a regular election you go to the polling place you're close the curtain your vote for our version whoever you want and you leave a caucus is a different deal first Wallace lower turn out about fifteen percent of the voters will turn out in this democratic caucus as opposed to say thirty five forty in a primary which makes it difficult to get harder to pull but what happens in a caucus you go to a high school gymnasium or fire house or something like that and the first thing that you do is you break up into their groups behind the Canada that your support and have your Canada doesn't get fifteen percent of the vote in that caucus you have to redistribute to some other candidates so it takes a while you debate other citizens some people like that some people don't well you don't have the voter ID problem there do you well probably not in most small town caucuses in Iowa you know each other but I'm sure they do have some kind of a vetting system before you go and but but lots of this is neighborhood stop that's what makes it different and that's why I when say the Iowa caucus is important in going first and vetting these candidates because they do see him face to face they get to ask him questions when these candidates come to Texas on March third I think it is Texas is a big place our cities are huge we don't actually see the candidates ourselves generally we maybe see a clip on TV so I was very much up close and personal well it's about getting out there getting some sort of momentum going on to specially for candidates who has nothing to show for what's going on so far other than all the money spent right yeah I think that's right there there are still eleven Democrats in the race but they're really only about five that will show well in matter down the stretch so I didn't carcasses are hard to pull but the polling we do have suggests that that Biden and Sanders will be near the top maybe Sanders on top and then biting and behind that we'll be Elizabeth Warren and and Pete booter judge little further back maybe Amy club which are but what people normally say in a in a in a in an election year is that there are two or three tickets out of Iowa meaning that if you don't finish in the top two or three spots then you're likely to see your fundraising Wayne the enthusiasm of the people behind you well Wayne and if you do win Iowa or run strong in Iowa then you get a lot of publicity your fundraising picks up you go then to New Hampshire and then into the rest of the race so showing well and I away even if you don't win is important yeah you don't have to get a strike because if you're in the top two you'll get to spare maybe you know by the time you get New Hampshire within South Carolina is a problem to in it yeah yeah that's right and I think strategically what people can look for tonight is if Bernie Sanders does win over Biden a lot of institutional long time Democrats think that a socialist democratic candidate for president not a good idea so they're pulling for biting and so Biden finishers credibly in Iowa does okay in South Carolina Nevada and in New Hampshire then the Vatican South Carolina are better stage for him with South Carolina being a place that he's double dot I had two to one over Sanders or anyone else and then you get super Tuesday twelve or fourteen states all over the country and that should be better for Biden too so what people are watching tonight is is if Sanders finishes first is Biden credible in if he is then you go to New Hampshire on those other races and it's looking now as if Elizabeth Warren and Pete burner judge both surged at some point during the campaign are fading a little bit one of them will probably finish third and again the question is how close how competitive they look sorry Sir thanks is always appreciated that's SMU's cal Jolson joining us here on news radio seven forty K.

Early Bowl Games, CFB Playoff & a Conversation with Jim Delany
"Joe's I'm Stewart Mandel L.. Joined by Bruce Feldman for our Christmas week episode Bruce a really special guest Pleased to have the outgoing big ten commissioner Jim Delaney on this show here a little bit. He is down to his last ten days or so on the job. But I How is your house your viewing experience first weekend of Bowl Games? It was good I got to see most of the Games. It was one thing I'll say is it was three. NFL Games. That ran on Saturday in those games. Were more competitive Than some of the bowl games I gotTA admit You know hats off to Fau. They had a coaching change and even without the coaching change. I think a lot of people would have thought okay. You have a bigger group of five really good team. SMU AGAINST A smaller group of five and it turned out to be a blow out but not the way. Yeah probably a lot of us would have expected so hats off to the owls. I thought that was a real head-turner The other one that jumped out at me. I think is Kent State it considering how bad that program was Not long ago I mean Sean. Lewis has stepped up there and really made a a huge impact. They are a fun team to watch they at their first bowl win in school history On the first first day of the bowl games it was one of those reminders of what I think because they had to really scrap just to get to be bowl eligible. I think that they are a great example of Y. No there aren't too many bowls it's five hundred team that got into a bowl game. They were impressive how they handled it. And it means a ton to that program Graham and I think Those players deserve the spotlight. Yeah I got that one wrong. I picked Utah State to win by like thirty. Whoops that's bowl season for ya the SMU ONE SMU Fau? Definitely surprise me as well. I think that that. SMU's one of those teams that got a lot the hype because they were doing things they hadn't done a long time and then it just kind of unraveled You know their their signature win was TCU and then TCU doesn't end up making a ballgame So hey that crazy shootout with memphis though You know it's interesting. There was a time when everybody was lobbying for their respective team. Conference for the Group of five New Year six bowl and Michael Rescue was furious that at one point. SMU is ranked behind Appalachian State. Obviously Mountain West. People were furious. That Boise State didn't get more credit Compared to the AC and then both SMU eastbound Boise State Mountain West Champ gets blown out by Washington honestly a Washington team. That wasn't all that great this year but I felt like nick and kind of I think you had the same hunches. Well and Chris Petersen's last game that they would. They would come to play and they did. That was a Thorough domination and now we all wait to see what Jacobson do. Yeah look I mean this is now Jimmy Lakes program. There's already been a little staff shakeup. Bush Hamden the offense coordinator. WHO's there for two seasons? He is already out as well as One other offense of assistant so one thing to keep an eye on and I'm GonNa have a story on this on the athletic Later this week is there's a lot of sizeable offensive coordinator vacancies out there. So Bunch in the PAC twelve oregon is looking for an offense coordinator as his Washington. As is cal- I think there's going to be quite a few more coming There's you know look. There could be a few big ones in the south as well as the ones that already have had coaching changes. This is where they're looking for guys so it's an interesting subplot to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks Again as we mentioned a few weeks back You you know. We both have a lot of respect for Chris. Peterson thought it was cool. To see the way he went out We'll see if he ever comes back to coaching or what he does next. He's somebody I would. I'd love to have on the podcast at some point down the road Just because I always thought he was one of the more interesting people in coaching even though sometimes he didn't always WanNa show oh you his hand publicly so hats off to him stew before we get to Jim Delany though This is probably our only chance to restore at least on the audible to talk about the semi final games. And you'd think it feels like they're way off in the distance but as we're taping this They're less than a week away. feels like the right up on us. Does I mean to me. The teams arrived working on this part on Sunday night and the teams arrived. I think a couple of them at least arrived in Phoenix already. It's nuts it's It's playoff semi final week already.

How Does GSMArena Work?
"Is here from GM Marina. And I don't know I just WanNa have fun with this episode because in the Tech Community and I'm sure and I want to hear in the comments sections what everybody says in the community. We look to GSA marina as like what's the term I could use the facts pedia. Yeah yeah one of the places to remember what lights at check. What specs are for hours and all that stuff like we even joke? We're at events that we say hold on on GSM SMU. We need to confirm with either. The people were talking to you from pr or I it has to be on GSM so you're edgier some rain obviously yes Do you do any of the testing happens. They're like what. What would you describe your your your time as I do a little bit of everything? Jason Marina I rate news articles I review smartphones. I don't review all of them so I'm based in the US and I receive devices from the US and sometimes they don't get them in in Europe adjacent areas based in eastern Europe. So if they don't get them at the office then I have to do the testing so there's not I can't do one hundred percent of a test that we run of course but I do most of your mind because it's so intricate like your reviews process the written reviews process not to say that the video videos or not. But you're you've been doing a lot of video stuff recently right like it's become more of a focus for G. I feel like recently than I've ever known in in the past couple of years. We've definitely been ramping up Video production and we have a fulltime Production team at the office and they do most of the videos But yeah since then we've been racking up subscribers it's been growing youtube channel and We just hit a hundred and I figured it was one hundred ten thousand I think so on the road to that on the road to one mill. It's exciting it's exciting and I'm really glad to be a part of this team because even when I started you know they were like looking for someone who really knows too much. But we're willing to learn with you and when I got hired. They didn't have a full production team yet so it was just this thing that was still starting. Yeah so you're more on the video side. I mean there's just a there was a pixel for review that just came out all linked to it's in the description. Make sure you check it out. We watched it last night because this guy wanted to make sure like everything was good so we were like watching it together. This funny bits in there. I really recommend it so because it feels to me and I don't I don't really know if this is necessarily fair disabled on the video video site obviously you have a little bit more. You can have more fun with the content in a way because it's not so again I'm trying not to be here. It's just that on GSA marines actual website it's tables and graphs and very specific benchmark testing and all that stuff. Obviously the videos. Don't really have that kind of that kind of motif right so I mean we do like announce some some of the results that we had from are written review in the video review. Yeah but We try to have more fun with it especially if you know in this. Like specific niche the category of smartphones. Like it can be very. It can get monotonous. So we're always trying to like somehow like Papa joke you know here and they're trying to we all try to laugh because sometimes it can be really stressful to get these videos that on fine but sometimes we just want to like. Oh we're just trying to take it. Yeah we're just having a good time. So what can you share with everyone about. Because I know that I've always been very curious about. Obviously we see the results. We see what the reviews are like. There's always like pages upon pages of them. Always drunk to the conclusion page longer. Really used to be longer than they wanted to get into. What is the process for all? Because there's so much going on so I just think just tap May. Yeah I think so. He used to. We used to review phone since the creature faults so there were parts of the view that were still around even after feature. The phones were no longer popular so we would have like an SMS section where we took screen shots of this text messages. We had we had like a section for like I'm trying to. I WanNa pull up an old phone that I used to have before the smartphone age and I. Yeah I know there's got to be a look. I don't know if they had like a Sony Ericsson they should have blackberries blackberries up there even. Oh Yeah Yeah. That's for sure. Yeah but sorry continue. Yeah so like we used to do because we we try to show everybody in the written reviews like the the interface and we took screen shots of what looks like and what it looks like to change wallpaper. We used to wait. Go Away to specific and then Lincoln the Capacity Beers. They revamped the style or not the style they revamped layout and they made it shorter because it used to be like nine pages. You was like what seven because now it's like six If the camera hasn't a features we'll split the camera into to sometimes we split sections because it's too long but it usually it's it's either six or more at this point but yeah there are a lot of moving parts in the review.

There's a lot more friendly relationship in Congress and I thank people realize Probably should do a better job of letting the American people know that we talk about the importance of Central America in US policy and his transition from military to civilian life. I Imagine Kaufman and this is the strategic presented by the George W Bush Institute. What happens when he crossed the forty third president late night? Sketch comedy and compelling conversation the strategic podcast born from the word strategically which was coined by ASK SNL and embraced. By the George W Bush administration we highlight the American spirit of leadership and compassion through thought provoking conversations. And we're reminded that the most affective leaders are the ones who laugh. Well thanks so much to congressman Dan Crenshaw for joining us today on the strategic just congressman. And we appreciate you taking a few minutes here. Absolutely great to be with you. In our CO host. Today is the Great Lower Collins. WHO's the director at the Bush Institute? SMU Economic Growth Initiative Initiative. Laura thanks for hanging out again thanks for calling in great must be all the cookies I brought it. I'm easily bribed. Yes so congressman you represent the Great State of Texas. Were you grew up but your your background isn't strictly restricted Texas year. Pretty uniquely global. Can you tell us a bit about the path that you took to where you are today. Wow well quite a quite a few years so I'm from Houston My Dad was Petroleum engineer he He jumped around a lot of a lot or some companies over's career and You know as a result we moved around a lot so my life was going between Houston and overseas and back the east and back overseas and You know somewhere on the lines of I wanted to join the military Specifically the seal team's James Next you didn't WanNa do in the military wanted to be a seal specifically right. Yeah that's what I did. And did a few deployments a little mixed up on third deployment and that kind of sent me on the path in Amman now because eventually resulted in me. Happy military fought that pretty hard for years. And and Did a couple more deployments and operations role but eventually had to leave. Some of that time in the military too was was some overseas living with. You said Your father father worked in the oil industry in west end lived overseas at time. He spent some time in Central America. Correct Yeah South America. Yeah so Lived in Ecuador a little bit Middle School and then actually all my entire high school spent in both hot Columbia de. Do you think that your childhood influences your public policy in any way because you were exposed to so so many different cultures as you as a as a young kid and and a lot of a lot of different experiences than your typical politician. I think it does. I mean it's So as a as a younger kid what I'm exposed to is kind of a need to defend the United States Like a new. Defend your patriots them you know. America is sort of punching bag around the world. Because it's it's the big the big guy in the room right there you know it's it's it's always been that way and it was just commonplace for everybody to to to take swipes out there you know. Sometimes you know well and say well intentioned but not not in a malevolent ways. It's just is what it is and that's just not something you're used to at a young age usually unless you grew up overseas like I did so that's the first thing I did start thinking about patriotism early on in Mike It wasn't default. You know and so and And other than that though it just gives you perspective Perspective on how good we have it in a lot of ways and What we should be grateful for and In Perspective on other countries you know deeper understanding and and and You know appreciation for for other cultures as well You know my my My parents actually. After I live in Columbia my parents moved to Venezuela. I was earning college by this point. So I know some pretty well I knew it was prospering. And then as it devolved into terrible socialist policies. I don't pretty well like what we be grateful for. Yeah totally do you think you know. We're in kind of a time where there is a bit of an isolationist streak but so far in your short political career. You haven't had a that perspective you've been a little bit more More of a proponent of being involved abroad particularly in Central America. You have co sponsored some legislation About the northern triangle. You've visited with our Central America Prosperity Project participants which We really appreciate. And you've talked to us a little bit about the digital strategy that we proposed for Central America. How do you Game just a a little bit about what that means you why you think it's important. Yeah well we have to empower our neighbors and we have to give them the same lessons that America has learned over the last few hundred years. Unfortunately we're I think we're forgetting many ways but but we'll here's what we learned. We learned that when you empower the individual to to live free and protect their personal property rights and their freedoms. Then you have the best chance for human prosperity and it's a really simple lesson that America has learned that America has been the leader of for very long time. We're questioning that ourselves lately You know as we're flirting with socialism and things like that But as we question it we we should also Empower our others and I thought it was cool to meet with you guys with your team on this and and hear about the digital infrastructure ideas. Because what I got from that was exactly the right American lesson which is you empower people to to live and thriving economy and In the best way to help people come out of poverty is to empower empower them and I just really cool conversation that we have you know talking about. What would they presented which was like listen? The these people want to work right but they can't. I can't set up an Uber Account. They can't set up online banking. They can't sit up you know. They can't rent their house out there. BNB just some basic stuff You know want we help with that digital infrastructure and allow them to thrive you know again. These are neighbors where we do have to do it. To look at ways to and smart ways to help development oatman these countries. And it's it's not just throwing money away. Corrupt governments no. It's actually look some more creative ways to do that. Deeper than that. You mentioned the corrupt governments and there are some some things that we completely take for granted here because we do have transparent government not perfect but transparent. We do have A situation where we have the rule of law and we have protection of property rights. These are things that I don't think a lot of Americans understand. Fundamentally don't exist particularly in the northern triangle countries in way that makes every bit of existence difficult. There's lack of economic opportunity If you want to set up a business pay your taxes you might get shook down by a a government official in addition to street gangs You your tax rates on it being higher than they need to be because there are so few people actually paying them and there's just a lot of things are the adept to make it an untenable situation. It's very hard as an ordinary person to to make it in any sort of way and have they lacked fundamental freedom that we have. Yeah exactly. Yeah 'cause back to we should really be more grateful for the United States of America And I think we used to be as a country and we're slowly forgetting that and It's a it's a parent as we all commemorating nine eleven. And you know there's been a lot of talk. We remember how we all came together as Americans back then it would just loved our country and everybody through American food who American flags everywhere and You know we definitely don't want another nine eleven back there but I want why we shouldn't need one right. It should just be the default you know we have our differences is but there are certain things that we appreciate about about our country
