They're demanding more people be released because of the crisis. In part three of our Siri's KCBS reporter Kathy Novak speaks to a victim of violent crime about Why she supports the calls for mass releases. Seven years ago, Lupe Angola was visiting family in Gilroy with her fiance. Gunshots rang out, and unfortunately he wass He was shot once, and he passed away in my arms that night, apparently caught in the crossfire of gang violence. The day after the funeral, Lupe found out she was pregnant. I felt like they robbed me of having my partner and then my daughter having her father, so at the time, I just felt like I was robbed of something very special in my life, and I was angry, so she understands why some victims of crime have difficulty with the idea of mass releases from prisons. People like I should be completely against it, but I'm not. Her fiance's killers were convicted of murder and sentenced to 83 years to life. They were people of color and teenagers. They're lacking community resource is they're lacking advocates. They're lacking mentors, Lupe says She did a lot of work learning about restorative justice. And through that she found love with a new partner. His name is Tom Tran. Yes, the same time trend we met earlier in this series who's currently incarcerated in San Quentin.

Off those calls, Gavin Newsom said last month. I hope they're being thoughtful and considerate of not only the victims, but the prospects of people re offending San Francisco District Attorney Chase A. Boudin says release plans should be more ambitious and include people who have served long sentences that are statistically less like Early to re offend over 90% of people who are incarcerated will be released at some point. And so the question is not if but when and how, and we need to ensure that we're releasing people under conditions that allow for them to successfully reintegrate. He's been working on re sentencing cases consulting with crime victims like Lupe Guys are eventually going to join us again. So I would rather than be prepared and re ability have been Kathy Novak.

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads
"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen

"The share the Mike movement where black women to take over the INSTAGRAM's of women, also with major amounts of influence I'm wondering you know if you're at home and not on instagram or don't have millions of followers. Do you think that there could be share the mic moment in people's personal professional lives? And what would that look like oh? Yes, that's a great question I mean. I'm I'm really proud of the campaign. Because it's a simple idea that can have very lasting effects know one of the reasons why we created. The campaign was because I find one of the most undiversified. Of Our inputs is our social media. You know it is one of the only places where you can choose exactly who you want to follow and can curate your messages that way you know you book your social, Media Feed, and it is not like your workplace. Right your workplace. Yes, of course, choose to work there, but the other people who are hired are probably not your choice You can even pretend like your family. You didn't have a choice. Be brought in your family. But, you know what you're. You're kind of stuck with who you got. Our social media platforms give us so much choice. We can curate that in any way that we want to you. Don't take a look at your own and your themes you know. Are you only following people who you agreed with? Who Look like you who sound like you. A lot of its users are social media as a form of escape sometimes Inspirations sometimes a break some sort, and so we curate to satisfy that feeling the danger, though is that is where we're getting Muslim information, it is where we are interacting with most of the content, and so if everything in that feed looks like you talks like you moves like you do then, we are not diverse at all in our thinking, and so for me. It was really important to figure out how this route. that. And the quick answer was well. You know what I actually do. Have a big following relatively speaking, but there are spaces that might messages don't fall, and so could I take over without permission from the audience? A different person's account so that my messages could land there. Because, it's probably guaranteed that those people don't follow me. They're not hearing my messages. They're not even hearing anything to say. And so I do think that it's important for us to take a look at our own inputs. And I've been asking folks to do this for a long time. which is that you know, take a hard long look at yourself. I can count. We'd love to point fingers and say that somebody else's problems, somebody else's racist, but if your own social media feed your own circle of friends and influence aren't diverse, and therefore, you're not hearing other opinions. Perhaps it's time to change Zap and if you happen to be someone. Who? Is Non, black. And you have a social media feed I. don't care if you.

He also has a facebook page called American Revolution Podcast, which also has nothing to do with my podcast. So if you WANNA get connected to the one related to this podcast, be sure to select the group that is simply called American Revolution podcast. I did check out the other group and noticed some comments. There were of people who were clearly referring to my podcast rather than the other one. Sorry, that this can get so confusing but I guess American Revolution podcasts are becoming a rather competitive feel. This week we covered the battle of freemen's farm sometimes called the first battle of Saratoga. The British under General Burgoyne are becoming desperate as they are cut off from Canada and unable to reach New York City. The battle was the British army's attempt to break through the American lines and finally reach New York. I briefly mentioned in the main show that we call it the battle of Freeman's farm because the battles fault on a field owned by Tori named Freeman. The farmer in question was a man named John Freeman who had rented the land that he was farming from General Philip Schuyler. Freeman along with his wife and ten children had in fact, fled to Canada earlier in the war. It turns out though that Freeman enlisted in the king's loyal Americans and was with this loyalist regiment as it marched back to his old home. By some family histories he served as a local guide to the British during the time surrounding this battle. Is. Twelve. Year old son Thomas Freeman was also with him during the campaign. Freeman managed to survive the battle and the campaign. At least one source I read said that when Burgoyne surrendered his army, the loyalists that were with him were permitted to return to Canada. I'm not sure if the Americans allowed the return or if the loyalists simply melted away and made their way back to Canada on their own. This is actually a question. I'm still trying to answer. However we do know that by early November John Freeman and his son were back in Saint John's Quebec and were reunited with their family. I wish. I. Could say they lived happily ever after but a short time later a smallpox. Killed Jon Freeman his wife and seven of his ten children..

"I was literally worried aid that I was not going to be able to speak in two minutes. I'm going to break hockey night in Canada. Show the show on my first one right here. I remember bright turn to John Muckler and I said this must be the first time the guy interviewing you was more nervous than you are and John Muckler seen everything and he looked at me in he just growled he goes. I doubt it and that got me back down to myself again like John. Muckler saved me in that first interview view and I'll never forget that as long as I live you know and I'm not gonna I still think now like when I go on the air. Don't ruin the show die settle. I think that every week I go on you know ruin the show. You know what hockey night in Canada working in hockey nate taught me how to buy ties everyday this story no. I'm not going to say who the analyst commentator was but it's someone in our industry who is the Torius for how do we we say squeezing the beaver on the nickel until it squeals very cheap okay so doing rinkside. It's a Montreal. I have a guest but I'm not GonNa do it. Don't do it. You probably know exactly what I'm talking about. So it's Saturday night Montreal San Jose game and so I get into Montreal doing Hakkinen reckoning candidate radio show on Sirius I get off at six o'clock good over to Puerta catch. Someone are a flight to Montreal. I've met the hotel by eight thirty nine o'clock and I walk in in annecy this person on the crew sort of waves over like I'm going to go drop my stuff upstairs and we'll come and have a beer with you have over and we start chatting reading and talking about clothing somehow ended up talking about wardrobe and he says to me. How many ties do you think I have doc? I saw cheese. I Dunno you've been on TV A LONG-TIME BUDGET every year a few new title is I have no idea he says I've got about six hundred ties. So what I give or take maybe five hundred I don't know but five six hundred high all ready we're dropping by one hundred and he says guess how many of paid for haven't even paid for he says zero. He says you should come tie shopping with me sometime. I say sure but the prices right I'd love to says we'll put your beer down. We're going shopping right now. So what we put our beer down and we walk over to the front desk and sure enough he walks up to the front desk and says excuse me yeah I stayed here. A couple of months ago left a couple of ties up in my room wondering if there's ensuring up bring a basket to dukes everytime and the a bunch of sides Oh yeah these super one over each shoulder and he's back to the bars. I do it every hotel room I sta AH picked up ties. I don't know about any of you guys. In this crowd. I would be mortified that story like we know what somebody was telling that story about I would be. I don't think it'd be able to walk outside. I would be so embarrassed ties phone chargers. What's the media price Elliott Free Ninety nine ninety eight ninety nine? That's the way it is the greatest thing you ever saw greater so you're fortunate enough to cover. I was with you in Beijing so gotta to see Phelps Swim that was cool to see you sane bolt run but the coolest thing I ever saw and it made me feel like an inferior human being was one day I was was doing like you. All the big shot sports because you're Elliott Friedman so you're doing like the one hundred meter doing all the biggies I think I was doing table. Tennis your the over. Maybe archery my first Olympics. I did table if you're going to table tennis though he'll tennis in Beijing was amazing because Peking University was crammed sixteen thousand thousand people so one day so I file done around noon and I'm going over to the next to see some of the guys run and so I finally put my little CBC BBC Knapsack on and I'm from going over the I think I might have gone to the pool. I remember as walking through Olympic Village and I notice beside me as I'm SORTA clumping along in Beijing this. I don't know what it was but it was this creature that was almost like prancing beside me like I'd never seen anyone walk like this bolts and if you've ever seen anyone who can walk perfectly you know what I'm talking about where every single muscle is in complete harmony and symphony with every other muscle in his body and it seems as if there's a grace and a string and he's got his headphones on and he just grooving and I remember specifically being so embarrassed to walk next to you sane bolt that I stopped opt because I'm just pump thump thump thump thump going going off and here's this guy who's this graceful gazelle. Who's walking beside me for the first time in my life? I was embarrassed to walk. What about you well? You know like you mentioned. Both that was one of the highlights of my career no question about it. I was the I was the trackside trackside reporter that year in Beijing and I will never forget that when bullock's that year bolt one hundred and the two hundred and he set the world records in both and I don't know if any of you will remember that eerie smashed the record in the hundred and in the two hundred and all the heats he stopped running and there was a big controversy yeah about a wasn't going to try for the world record and the two hundred and I remember one day I got to ask him about it and he talked about how you know. You don't do do that you you slice the onion thin and the reason is that a lot of people in that sport they're paid based on appearance fees and you make more money. The more you break the world record so you don't necessarily want to smash it so he would go around abandoned the two hundred and the heat and the semi final and he really was stopping. He was winning so far far so I remember for the two hundred meter final it was at night and Jeff referred to it was called the bird's nest because the stadium actually looked like a bird's nest that seat on the outside. I seated ninety one thousand people it was a beautiful thing and so two hundred they start and people think he's going to win but nobody is expecting. He's going a beat the world record because he's basically said he's not even going to try well so he blows out with a huge lead and he's killing the field and he comes around on that band and all of a sudden people realize bolts not stopping he's going for it and there's this low flow murmur and it's getting louder as the audience is beginning to realize what's happening like he's making the run for it and all the sudden they're screaming. They're cheering on like as a reporter. You're supposed to be objective and compassionate and or dispassionate but if you didn't have your a hair standing up on end when this was going on you basically had to be like dead so he comes around and he smashes through the finish line and everybody's stairs and turns at that clock and you're waiting to see the letters w. r. come up because of its. Wr It's a world record record and when those letters came up that plays went bananas like he he went flat down his back like he mocked fainted in that place went wild and then all the sudden it was his birthday. Everybody started singing. Happy Birthday like there's not too many things I'm ever going to see in my life that are going to be more incredible than that like the Golden Goal in two thousand ten we didn't do those Olympics and I got married that year in in September two thousand nine and we put off our honeymoon so I went during the Olympics I went on my honeymoon with my wife to Hawaii and we came back on the on the Saturday and on the Saturday night I flew to Vancouver to go to the gold medal game on the Sunday so I think I became became the first guy almost to get married go on to come back from their honeymoon and get divorced within twenty four hours but like that was an incredible thing to see crosby score or but I got to tell you that bolt thing at the Olympics that was dynamited. You always want to do this. Was this always your plan like young Elliott Friedman playing sports but one day dreaming of being a sports reporter like I knew it in early age. I wasn't going to be a professional athlete. You know I always you know I I love sports. I love the unscripted drama of it. It's one of the last things in the world that we don't know what's GonNa happen before it happens. I love it. I told the kids this today but I think the other thing that's really happened is when you're around elite. People and these are elite people their league coaches like if you play one game in the the National Hockey League you are the elite of the elite is so hard to get there. I was talking to Corey Locke. I was telling you they Corey Locke players from Ontario. He just retired tired after a fifteen year career he played five games in the NHL. He won two calder cups. You want a championship in Berlin like he played five games to me. That's incredible credible but like when you're around the elite of the elite if you don't learn something about what makes us successful or what can make you better. I am so much of a better person and human being because of what I've seen up close. I've been very blessed to live the life. I've I've. I've gotten a live. There's no question about. Is there an athlete. You've always wanted to interview present or previous. You've never had a chance institute someone you've only admired from afar I would love to as watching the NBA championship run. I would love to sit down with Kawhi Leonard and my first question to be him. It'd be like does anything rattle you. You look at that guy. That guy was a stone faced killer like he he beat those teams and he never looked like his blood pressure got high never looked like a heartbeat more than just com every game he the matter what happened the game before he was great the next game where he was reset the next game. I would love to ask what rattles you. What makes you excited I would I would love to sit down with that guy? You know what makes them tick. Some of the features used to do for hockey night were real good and one of the Jefferson is the quality of my work has dropped off and recently specifically on this podcast but I'm here to carry you so it's okay for Jesus served through another contracts the Pavel Datsyuk one that you did I thought was really interesting and I remember talking to Brad May who played with him in Detroit as well saying how he doesn't let anybody watches workouts but he doesn't let anybody. It's very private one just want to let anyone know he just goes away and he comes back and he's all louder up and we don't know what have does is he one of the more interesting interesting players you've ever done all about like when I look at like the last twenty years in hockey. We just had this artist float through that that not too many people know a whole time boat but if you ask players they'll tell you couldn't lift up a stick. All this guy was a wizard out there. This guy was everything like he was great. I loved Alfredsson and like my favorite one was probably Daniel Alfredsson. I think he was the funny at one of the funniest guys alive. I love talking to him. Dad Soup that one was great. We had one on the anoxia their sleep patterns. I remember they watch. I loved all that stuff. I miss doing that stuff. I'm doing pretty good the question. I thought it was really good with the kids this afternoon but I'm we'll wrap up pretty soon. We'll stick around. We'll take questions if you actually want to take a picture with either one of us. We'll be happy to do it. This opportunity to come out like this is the first time anybody's invited us out to do something like this. I think it's like I'm serious about what I said before. I'm from Toronto I didn't understand until I got to hockey night. In Canada. How much man ain't come to places like Saint John Places I hadn't been before and represent what it is that we do jeff and I very fortunate or jobs? It's difficult for me to put it into words how much I appreciate and we appreciate the invitation to come here. Thanks very much for having us. Thanks very much for being here tonight. We know how much hockey means to you and visit means to you and we hope we delivered. It's it's important that we really appreciate. Thank you very much. Thank you trevor. Thanks Scott we have I can I ask what words we will put it up on social media but on behalf of our producer.

"Has you covered yeah. We're GONNA get you back to our live event at rockies in Saint John As part of the fiftieth anniversary of the Saint John's seadogs of the J. Shell you will hear from Trevor. Georgina couple of moments Jeremy Portray will drop by the podcast as well but we're going to detour a little bit and rewind to Chicago Elliott is part of the star series interviewing. I think it was twenty one different players players one of them a former Saint John Dog in Jonathan Hugo someone who's I still maintain very quietly has put together an exceptional career early on in the NHL one of the most underrated left-wingers in the game. What did you expect from Hugo before? We talked to him in Chicago. I've got a lot of experience earnings with you. I've dealt with them quite a bit over the years I I expected nothing less than what we got which was good stuff he's not a guy who makes a ton of bold proclamations. I wasn't expecting those but he's confident. He's not afraid to say what he wants to say. I'm just amazed Barzel. That's a guy who's really filled out in a short period of time. I'm Huber does at tank is due. He just looks like you would bounce off them if you try to touch them but Florida this is a big a year for them no more BS. It's an important time for that franchise. They've got to take a step forward and that's why they threw that money at Borowski here. He is Florida Panther winger former Saint John's dog Jonathan Cubano on thirty one the PODCAST Hoover Shani's stores ores in the panthers are on the border early one minute one second of the Action Barkov the panthers lead one nothing up the near side looks cross ice clear clear who've been shoddy scores and the panthers are on the Martin early in the Second Jonathan Hoover no Ron Hubbard own nifty forty stores in the Panthers scored three Don Johnson Hoover no we're. We've gone just a hair over three minutes. Moving Panther tied the game Jonah that hoover no walked walked in with this game has to go in behind maintains possession great effort by Hubert. Oh is it over the bar talk. He's flights skinner away again. Curls over pleased to be joined by Jonathan Hugo the Florida panthers acts of the Saint John's seadogs. I WanNa get to the panthers but let me ask you a couple of things about at the seadogs began in verse three for fifteen years and the CWM J. Shell. It's powerhouse franchise great ownership really well run when you think back to your time the seadogs what comes to your mind right away Jonathan well. Obviously we've got a you know we. We had a chance to have a really good team when I was there. No fifty plus win for three years is in a row with less than a final the first year we want a meme cub the the U. Rafter went to the third years old. I'm here I feel my junior crew was a really fun and I feel like you know out of good coach Shu drug along with the you know such a great coach role model and show me the way to go to the NHL Diesel. Keep in touch with your old seadogs teammates. When you go through what you went through with that team generally those guys bond you still keep in touch some that he had to do like alumni weekend every year so I try to go back in John? It's not everybody can go but obviously a lot the guys and I think he just bring back great memories that we had when we were there and you know having such a a winning team I think it makes a different and I guess then we play a game sometimes and maybe next year. We're GONNA play another game and we draft her team. We play and makes it the IT makes it a lot of fun should point is why you went into the sea dog hall of fame. Um last summer that special for you that important to you things like that yeah. It was a special I think Trevor Georgia to new. GM came in and I I think he emphasized a lot on alumni and that was cool that he you know he did the fame and I was the first one to be inducted and it was a special moment. It was a lot of fun. I thought they did a really good job. I thought it was going to be like small but it was pretty big and I think next your mic Tom Izzo captains good inducted this year I think Deroga- and Mike Kelly next year so one hall of fame down one to go yeah. I hope I can make make another one. I'm curious. When was your first conversation with Joel Quenneville this summer I was that the is press conference read after we were there was like two days after the season so we all stayed? They'll tell him wanted us to go and we had a chance to talk to him but you know in that personal and two weeks after you know he called us on the phone and we're we're back home and kind of told us what do you want us to do and when woody expected and it was just nice to talk to him little bit and I talked with a lot of people you know about Hollywood as a coach coach and obviously you know we know is a winning coach and you know we made the playoff eighteen of twenty season. I think I seen and the system that did had to is great. I feel that when we're playing against them so I'm really excited. you know to to be coached by Mike You. What did he expect of you like like when he said to you John? I'm expecting this. What did he tell you all obviously wants me to be? I'm already you know leader team. He wants me to be an even bigger leader and I think he just wanted me to get better this summer. You said you know kind of compare didn't compare me to Patrick Kane but he just said Patrick Kane every time she comes back after summer. I feel you gets better. You know it works on some things and if you're like Patrick. Kane can't get any better but I guess he does and that's what he told me so I think he he really like probably as in cane and you kind of you know Barkov in me. It's Kinda like similar the same age so what did you do the summer then. What was the thing that Jonathan Huber worked on this summer to impress Joel Quenneville? You know I need to work on my skating a lot in the summer and that's what I feel like you know. I got better two years by years and obviously the strength to know your legs explosion sort of I've been working on and you know skills to work on my skills every summer so I think I feel confident and I'm ready to go and I wanNA have a even a better than last year. I'm seeing here looking at you right now. Jonathan I remember when you were are drafted. Your first year you went to camp. You were one hundred seventy one pounds and they send you back to journalists said not yet like I'm looking at you now and I. I think if four of US jumped you in this room. You would put us all down. Arms are massive when you compare yourself now then how much of you changed inched. I've I've gained thirty pounds since then so I think it's a non two hundred. That's why I want to play. You know I feel comfortable so good in you. You know in the corners when I'm against like big guys but yeah it's crazy but I knew is going to come. It was just the timing and that summer again ten pounds next excellent again another ten pounds every every summer of muscles so that was that was what I needed to gain and so you know when you get in one seven arena I mean there's some guys that gander quicker but I wasn't as quick as other guy so is it was tougher to get around like you know defensemen when I came back you know I try to use you you know my strength my vision to t- to get around that and now I feel comfortable now. Who is the I like big guy that you battled and you one and you said Ed? It's different for me now like I'm where I need to be. That's a good question I mean I'll say another thing when I when my first training camp but I remember it was roof pick and I think he crushed. Check me or you just push me and I think I went five feet into the boards and that's and I was like all right the NHL is not junior anymore. That's what I knew. I wasn't ready having points are then was leading the team in preseason but Dell said it's a marathon not a sprint so he said I just go back junior and come back and but I think the the your after I came in I was like probably one eighty but a little bit more stronger so I still had a hard time but it was is much easier. It's more like two three years after it when I started like to be some defensemen and be stronger and I was like all right now I can play in this league and be like really comfortable last season. Obviously didn't go the way the panthers wanted to go but there were some bright spots specifically your offense panthers had no problem scoring top ten team offensively in the NHL H. L. Number two power play in the entire League zero problem scoring. Why is that like what clicked for you guys last year offensively? Can you point a couple of things. I think we have a good you look at our forward. I mean we have some guys that can score. We added some that you know Conley Cherry so obviously offensively. We were good but that's not all you win. Sometimes you know you're going to get scored on and usually feel last year. We had a lot of leads and we'd let it go in the third period rude but I think offensively just clicking you know we have good chemistry trying to find some fits from two players per line you know and Kinda mix it up but I guess Q. He was GONNA do this year but no offensively. We felt good defensively at a hard time you know keeping the puck from net then. That's what you know. It's Kinda killing us at at everybody is talked about that with the panthers that we need to defend better for men one two manned twenty. How do you do that? Obviously you need a good system and I think you need to commit to as a twenty players. You know you need to commit to your system and do it the proper way because if one guy doesn't do it well kind of falls on somebody has to cover for the other guy somebody so that's what I think we were doing you know past few ears and I feel you know accused GonNa come up with a great system and uh just play well to dedication. You know it's it's a big thing defensively blocking shots lots of those things you know. Even if you're a player that you know good offensively you still go to block shots..

"To day. Please take a look around to ensure the offer something about seeing possession before leaving the aircraft okay. The music stops so at suppose. It's probably time to begin welcome to rockies welcomed with thirty one thoughts the podcast I'm Geoff Merrick alongside Elliott Friedman Starve stage and screen and hockey night in Canada and the best hockey blog you'll read anywhere thirty-one thoughts and this podcast tells with that piece thanks everyone Iraqis for having us here. Thanks everyone in Saint John. I've been here a number of times Elliott. This is your maiden voyage. We're going to talk to Trevor Georgie here. In a couple of seconds Jeremy Poiret of the Saint John's seadogs will drop by as well but this is the first time you have come to the I said I got to get this right. The First Incorporated Incorporated City in Canada and the place where the first sidewalk was ever laid in candidate Saint John New Brunswick initial takeaway Elliott. You've been here here now for about twelve hours what's not to like. I got my steps in today. I tried to hit ten thousand a day so I can fit into this suit a little bit better great walking city not well over ten thousand what's not to like and this New Brunswick was the last province I had to visit in the country to beat everyone so I'm glad I finally got got here all right round of applause for Elliot now all of them throwing himself in Saint John Season opener Friday against the Halifax and then it is the intense rivals on Saturday as Trevor Georgie nods approvingly. We're GONNA have a lot of fun today. I want to thank everybody for coming down here rockies. It's a real treat and we get to get outside of the studio. Frank Zappa used to always call it studio Tan. I'm sick of just looking at Elliot when we do this thing I've known Elliott for too long and and I've looked at him for far too long so it's much nicer to look outward at you lovely people here from Saint John and speaking of lovely people we spent the better part of two two three hours this afternoon just having a sort of informal hot stove chat with this year's edition of the Saint John's seadogs and I'm always impressed with a couple of things about a young hockey players now one how thoughtful they are how lean they are how talented they are. We were joking afterwards. We're all the bad skaters go in hockey and just how curious they are about hockey in general asked him thoughtful questions gave some really thoughtful answers. This is a big season for Saint John Ten draft eligible players so Montreal is going to be populated by seadogs. Come come June and I'm curious what your thought was because you're basically a lot of NHL. You don't have the luxury of getting a lot of the junior. Hockey locale having said that you did come to one of the CADILLACS here maybe the Cadillac of all junior hockey franchises. Where did you make of the kids today? You know there's one thing I completely agree with like. I don't know how old everybody isn't here. I'm ten days away from turning forty forty nine and I look at these kids now from the ages of sixteen to twenty and I remember what I was like age sixteen to twenty and these kids kids now there's so much smarter and so much worldly compared to the way I was back then like I was a total cement headed that age compared to these kids I I mean. I don't know if it's social media. I don't know if it's the connectivity of everything I don't know if they have people around them whether it's their parents or their support staff or the or the seadogs dog the organization themselves but these kids are so much more prepared for real life than I was at that age I went away university. The was three weeks away before I turned nineteen. I was miles behind the way these kids are now. I am blown away by that. Maybe you guys were a lot smarter Arta than me when you were in your teens but I look at these kids now I am blown away by how prepared they are for the world. I wasn't even close Trevor Georgie up here in a couple of moments I in the meantime we talk about young hockey players and making that transition from the C. H. L. to the NHL and you look at a lot of successful teams around the League and we've always made the point that if you're gonNA to be successful at the highest end of the NHL you need to have young hockey players who were on their entry level deals and a cynic might look at that and say well. You need to have some cheap hockey ocoee players in there that are on the quote unquote cheap. NHL Deal I look at it as these kids are more prepared than ever now to make their way into the NHL once upon a time it was out of junior hockey. You're going to bang it out in the American League for a number of years and then maybe when you're twenty four you're going to get a break and make it to the NHL. There's just so much more Polish Polish now. I know this might say oh. It's a twenty three guys in twenty Uber's at the end of every game you know they talked to their agent more than they talk to their teammates but these kids these are so prepared to join the pro ranks now. It's not even funny anymore well if you look at the Ahl for the first time ever and I might be getting the year wrong. I'm not known for factual accuracy so you know just excuse me if I'm a year off but it was in the last two years where for the first time fifty percent of the NHL was twenty five or under that had never happened before and all the sudden for the first time ever that is happening and it's only going to continue that way. It's becoming a younger and younger league and the leagues are depending on players who are going to be that age so they expect them to be like that. We take take a look at it now. What was the big story in hockey last weekend? It was Mitchell Arner ending his contract dispute. The youngest players now also for the first time are making the most money like it it used to be. You had to wait to be thirty years old before you got your biggest bay chat. Maybe then became twenty eight years old before you get your biggest paycheck ever since Connor mcdavid a couple of years ago and now you're getting your biggest paycheck twenty one twenty two twenty three. There's there's a lot of different debates on even as prepared as these kids are if they're really ready for that but there's no question that the hockey world is changing that there's more young players ever the younger players dominating more more than ever. They're earning more money than ever and I think they're going to change the league for everybody. Here was got kids or nephews or nieces or grandkids or whatever like you watch them now on social media they are so bold. I like to test the line once in a while I like to I like to push and see okay if I do do this. How much trouble am I gonNA get in but for me? There is a line like I have a twitter rule. I I will tweet out something and I'll look at it for ten seconds before I pressed the tweet button and after ten seconds all say do I still think this is a good idea and most of the time if I don't think it's a good idea I won't do it but sometimes I'll say okay. Let's see how much trouble I'm GonNa get in for this a lot of these kids. They don't even think for ten seconds. They're just going and I I just think it's amazing how much the world has changed and social media's changed the world in in the last couple of years further to that point he twitter should come with the breathalyzer. That's what Glenn Healy always said twitter succumb with a Breathalyzer and yes the answer's yes twitter instagram. Damn all that stuff should absolutely you now. Somebody sent me an APP the other day where you can set it to a race like someone can read it and then after a minute you're you're texter races. That's probably the smartest thing of all I want to get your thoughts on junior hockey and your background on junior hockey as well junior hockey. I grew up ACR- up with me as my first love I would go to. What Games and Charles you the Toro's every now and then we'd get tickets to go see the maple leafs but generally I was going to Marley's games and my big first star that I that resonated with me was a goaltender Bruce Dowie. I thought Bruce Dow it was GONNA be the next you know the second coming of Ken Dryden Marley's and you're right about that. I was not and it's not the first time I've been wrong about hockey so so dowie never worked out really dropped. The Maple leafs never worked out. They went to Hamilton and then went to golf. When I was at university for four years I think missed maybe about twelve games in my for years there that was when they had Jeff O'Neill Jeff Bass and todd virtues like it was a real good team and a real tough team to Ken Balaj Ryan Vanden Bush some great and C. H? L. Slash NHL names what was junior hockey for you when you were a kid well. I grew up in Toronto too. I mean that was the one that was the one bad thing about growing up in Toronto and it's too bad things about growing up trump number one the rest of the country aids you and number two there isn't a lot of junior hockey and you know I used to go to these games aims to I would go two o'clock headers Marley's Maple Lane my parents. No I couldn't get into the League game so I did the marlies. There were two o'clock games on Sundays and I would go to those games. I Love Them. They laughed and then I went to University of Western. Two hours west of Toronto in London and at that London has a beautiful downtown arena now they didn't then they had an older out by the four zero one the big highway there and the joke was Bert Templeton Alton legendary hockey coach he would joke the best thing about playing in London was it was right next to a lob loss could pick up two points in your groceries in the same mhm night and but it was a terrible rank it was way out in the middle of nowhere like for university student myself. It was hard to get there but my first year they had a great team. Louis Debrosse was on that team who he was. He was a key player on that team but it didn't go through my veins like yours. I think the one biggest first thing that I learned at Hockenheim can't my first year was two thousand and three and four and the one thing I learned was the more I traveled outside of Toronto the more I I realized how much that show meant to Canada like I always loved hockey. I Li- like every Canadian I loved hockey. I love watching hockey but the more all right got outside of Toronto. I realized what I was missing. I didn't see hockey at all the different levels. I didn't see how much junior hockey men I didn't see how mu- I didn't even though I love Dan. I didn't recognize how much the show meant to people and I think that is probably that is the one thing I didn't realize because I was from that. City was the grassroots nature of the sport around the rest of the country both for the television show and for the junior hockey itself itself. I'm glad I've gotten to experience that. Although not as much as I would like everybody listening in Toronto is GonNa hate hearing this but in a lot of ways it's true and you see it through junior hockey once you get get out of Toronto Canada Starts Yup and that's where canister and a lot of Canadian hockey revolves around the local hockey rink and we're having a good start tonight. People already hate US 'cause we're from Toronto and now the people are going to Toronto GonNa hate us because we're telling them how to train was trying to curry favor with the local burying our own hometown grovel back to Correo Toby give back Toronto door will tell them how great they are and how bad everything else oh saint. John Yeah spent a week there one afternoon. Oh why would you do this little Joe the one thing that I wanted to get your thoughts on and we're GONNA get to the the new the newly branded. Td Station almost called the harbour station. It's old habits. They heard in a lot of Canadian cities unlike Toronto. The arenas where everybody goes like the rink is where everybody he goes after school you go to the rank. You WanNa meet someone going. There ain't going to get a cup of coffee. You're going to the rink yup that is like the meeting place and I think unless you're unless you have deep deep roots in junior hockey. You don't really get that and it's not just that the level as well all different levels of junior hockey and minor hockey to some extent as well that is the the meeting place for everybody in those towns and centers. It's one hundred percent true you know I I remember when I was a kid. I was not this will come as a huge surprise to all of I was not really that good hockey player by I remember playing and we'd have kids on our team that we're coming to Canada they were new Canada their parents were new to Canada.

"Let's get let's get some therapy up in here you know and that's to me what we need to think about as we think about what we like corporations and big companies big entities you know how we change in how we grow is that we should look at companies and organizations as human beings a collection of human beings rising spray shit. Yes absolutely and it's this is essentially what he did at. Uber Uber was the big scary monster there are individuals who are monsters and they needed to either leave or change does it end of story was one year enough. Uber for me. Yes not enough to get the job done for me. Yeah Yeah I mean but it was really for me self-preservation to be honest. Are you proud of the work that you did there. Oh yeah very much so I mean there was racial tension. There is sexual tension. You guys were the poster child for everything that was going wrong and awful terrible but honestly they to me. There was so much good to also be done and that's why I went. I went because I knew that it was a technology service. That was going to change the way we operate and is true. I mean it's been around for seven years. It's not not that long but yet it is a verb in our vocabulary right. You know it's like almost everywhere you go. Somebody's GonNa say we're GONNA UBER here. I'm going to Uber. There is so funny I was doing some research once when I first got there to see how people reacted to the word or reacted to the idea and it was hysterical to think that at the beginning of the product you know Oh you'd push the button to get a car. It would say it's coming in seven minutes. The driver would arrive. You'd get in it. Take you to every you're going. You get out and people more like Oh. It's magic. This is amazing. It was I five years later. You push the button. Seven minutes and people start cursing. Is it taking in so long. I can't believe driver comes. They're like they're mad. You know they'd get slammed the door. It was like Oh my goodness. You know it's like addict technology at the speed at which it's moving it's changing so much and I truly believe that the GIG economy and the way that we're operating in the future is going to be based on a lot of things we're learning now around that type of technology the shared economy and so I was really excited about it. Just may innovation nations standpoint and of course as a marketer you know. How do you evolve that kind of idea. How do you make it tangible. I mean even when I was at Apple. The idea of streaming you mean music was new at the time when I came on. I tunes as a downloadable business was the was the big one you know like you would you'd go on one hundred ninety ninety download your song and there you go yeah and thought about streaming was so foreign we need to really crack that is. I've always been very curious in about innovation and how to break things down to make them more humid to make them more tangible sure and so even when I got to Uber from apple my thought around around the company was how to humanize the idea of the tech and how to humanize the idea of the of Uber you know of the people who work there who were the individuals. What do they want ought to do. What is their motivation. No they're not like evil geniuses thinking about how to destroy the planet. They're real people who care about safety who have kids kids who have teenagers at send in cars and you know go to concerts and wanting them to get home safely. There are people who were out late at night having a good good time you know I want to also get home safely. There are people who are rushing to interviews who don't want to talk in the car but want to concentrate on their prep questions. You know the call. Let's that's me by the way I'm very quiet. Writer in the back required. Yeah I have to say like some of them are really chatty and I don't WanNa be rude and I don't want my rating to go down so I don't know how to handle that. There's a button you know you can choose. If you WANNA quiet ride say look at that innovation and I feel like they're judging judging me for choosing a quiet. You know what Paula I think we're discovering. You and I have a longer conversation backstage about a number of as we why don't we get in Uber and take a ride into the city hat. Let's do that. I like it do you. Have you taken over since you left. Oh Yes yes yes yes. Definitely I still use the. I'm very brand loyal so I still don't have a lift account. What can I ask you. What your readiness no no. Do you tip yes I do. I take you know because you know why. It's not highly would tell you now. This is my therapy session because I am very inquisitive curious and so most of the time I want to know what's going on. You know. I WanNa understand what you know what their experiences it is what's happening. You know they have complaints even though I don't work at the company anymore. I'm still interested in what's going on so you're the chatty passenger probably and you get the driver. That doesn't want to be exactly exactly. They're like Cheetahs. Shut up and I'm like so tell me about why you take this way. And how does the APP work for. You know they don't WanNa talk about it. They talk. You talked about having the importance of having allies at work who appreciate your differences people who can also champion for the differences. Why is it so vital for us to have allies that we work with weather and business or Church or hospital. What are wherever because we're human beings who are social you know and nothing we do. Is Totally holy by ourselves. I think sometimes we think of confidence and strength as an individual characteristic when it's not strength is not about what you are capable of strength is about what your community is is capable of the people around you your village you know. What are they providing. How were they empowering you and so. I've I've actually often talked about When I was at Pepsi. It was really sort of my coming out you know of all of this glorious nece that you see now not down in toning it down and there was a gentleman there. Zach Zach Harris who was my colleague and he sat in the cubicle next to to me and I remember one time or a lot of times. I've come to work on people. Just be like Oh my God. What does she have on. You Know Zach Zach was great. You Know White Guy Who Disney no five seven so when I had on my heels I was towering him and Zack would be like come on. Let's take a walk around you. You know and we would walk around the office people compliment or say something and he does. She look great today. The first time I told him that how much that helped me and how much I appreciated that was probably a decade later. He had no idea he really didn't know essentially asked you to dance. Yes exactly Leonid he did and it was just so it makes me wanNa cry now when I think about it right because it was something so simple for him and he was so comfortable in the space I mean it was his space right a lot of white guys around he's wearing Khakis and a blue button down shirt. God bless them. You know see now. I'm right girl spiked heels in a skirt that was probably way too short now and he just he would just support. You know oh he would celebrate it. He doesn't my instagram now so you know but but I don't think he understood how much confidence that gave me the how much that helped even though I'm a very confident person obviously but to have somebody else advocate for you was really really great even in such a simple way and it's something I like that that you can even use an example and that was how many years ago Oh yeah and it's something so simple that you carry to this day example of how we can ask someone to dance. Yes that's just a simple little gesture that or eight you say it all the time I do. I do it with my team myself but now they're also used to that behavior right where I don't try to put anybody on the spot. But usually you know you'll have a conversation rotation right before the meeting or somebody will come and tell you something because they don't want to say it in front of everybody else because usually because they're scared to they feel judgment and if it's really really good or if you feel like it really contributes in conversation. I'll say oh you know I was talking to that person and they said you know do you do you want to share that or should I share it uh-huh you know and that helps to break that other person and bring them into the conversation again asked them to dance. It's such a simple gesture but oftentimes we find that there are people who are in the room who don't have the ability to have the floor who can't express their idea even though it's probably good right just because they don't they don't have the they don't have the Mike we do yeah and it'll be great. If you have the Mike to pass it to somebody else. It doesn't lessen your voice to do it sure and a lot times those that they may feel that they don't have a voice and they become yes men and yes women and you've also said if you're getting too many yeses in a meeting that there's there's a problem you value conflict. Oh absolutely because it's healthy y'all S I I don't listen. I don't want to get to fisticuffs now. You know they don't want that okay but yeah. If you're getting yes is everywhere. It feels good of course to think you're brilliant and everything you say is great. Oh you are brilliant brilliant the need everybody to tell you that but oftentimes your idea can be built upon or sometimes. It's just wrong and people need to feel comfortable to tell you that or at least in some in a kind way just to be able to do like you know. That sounds sounds good but I was thinking what about if we did this and said you know I've been telling my assistance that Mike if I if I give a directive because that's what happens a lot right especially when you're in charge I do this do that do that do that yeah so used to doing that. Get me this today and you move on you probably wrong so I'm hoping that somebody comes back to me and says you know what actually you said to do that but I don't think so that's not gonNa work out so if you create but it's up to you to the environment where you're surrounding yourself with people to essentially save you from yourself and there's so many leaders now they just want to hear how brilliant they are yeah yeah and then we build them up and we build them up and they fall yeah well but honestly. I don't even know how high you can be built. If you think you're going to do it by yourself no one is that brilliant absolutely no one it so if you think you're that smart that you're GonNa keep climbing on your own accord right and you have a bunch of people around you. You telling you yes yes you are. You'RE GONNA fall very quickly. You'd Never GonNa make it come. I want you just to quickly. Describe your leadership style. You're smiling. I know right. I'm like how do I describe it. I think I am a empathetic leader for sure you know one who wants to understand what's happy the motivations nations. I'm naturally curious and so I always want to understand the meanings behind things and why you know if you have an opinion about something. You should not be surprised when I say why. Why do you think that tell me more about why that is just I always want to get to the bottom of whatever the you know. The idea is or the feedback. Gore the question. I do want people to feel empowered and to feel like they have ownership over their idea or the room or the strategy you know because I don't think that there's any success without being able to build other.
