'Woke' draws humor from a Black cartoonist's political awakening
"Is a new comedy on Hu Lu, about a black cartoonist who's about to launch a new A political comic when he's harassed by the San Francisco police. The show about his journey from complacency. Toe activism is out today and here's NPR's TV critic Eric Deggans with a review. As woke, begins. Cartoonists Keith Night spelled K E F is on the verge of the biggest success of his career. His cartoon toast and butter is so popular fans on the bus in San Francisco recognized I Love Toaster, but to make it So you keep night. I am funny. I didn't think people Happens all the time. And he's about to finalize a national syndication deal put together by a powerful agency to reach a mainstream audience. But there's a problem with the promotional materials. You guys lighten my photo that looked like Sammy Sosa. I might go back to my own comic strip O trust me. No one's gonna ever accuse you of being too black. Okay? I'm sorry. What? What? It's what we like. About two year Your crossover index is in the 95th percentile here being made to be champion. The data. I don't see color as you can hear. Keith Night played with an authentic, charismatic comic timing by Lemorin Morris has a well practiced ability to shrug off Microaggressions. He explains his attitude and a conversation with a different fan played by Sasheer Isa made last year, But I'm not controversial. You're black cartoonist here controversial just by existing. Why is it that as people of color always having to stand for something Just the cartoonist because the world's racist place and that's why I keep it light. But when San Francisco cops mistake him for a mugger, draw guns on him and handcuffed suspects, trauma leads him to see inanimate objects as animated living things, encouraging him to be well. Woke right talking trash key, and that ain't even close to No one. But you know, we're not even this's case. This is all wrong. This is how woke adds new layers of funny to a situation that easily could have been predictable and pedantic, especially when comics like Cedric the entertainer and the Cold Buyer are voicing the objects. This is a pitch perfect comedy released at just the right time, encouraging us to laugh at all of the absurdity surrounding today's racial and social politics, while also reminding us of why staying woke is ultimately so important.

If You Can't Giggle At Yourself Five Years From Now, You Haven't Grown Enough - with Brit Barron
"When this podcast airs, it will be the day. Your first book is out in the world's. How does it feel like Tom Arnold? The thinks. It feels amazing. Good the last I felt like. Three months ago I was like waking up in the middle of the night. Like does it suck, you know. And, and then had to work through so like what am I afraid of? And then finally I got a place like you know what I'm so excited for to be out and I'm so excited for people to read it and I'm excited here. What hits? What doesn't what like I'm just excited? Yeah, it's like I'm ready. Yeah, and by the way it's so normal as a creator. Especially I mean as an author. No matter how many books right you still are like you vacillate between. I think this is pretty good and oh. Oh, my gosh is is total garbage. What was I think? And it's been it. That's the wild thing. It's such a solo process for so long right like you and a couple of editors like. Sammy and my mom a year you know. And then it's just like you with these words for so long, and now it's GonNa be very public experience, the android like shocking, but also like by by the last week of waiting for it to be out by. Let's just gut. Let's deal. Yet and I'm ready and I'm like so happy. It's in the world and I just I just feel so proud of it in so west at about. So the buckets about okay, so you'll know this because we've been friends for so long I wanted to write a book for. Just one of those people like fifteen right like I, WanNa. Write a book and we were at happy. Hour. Like probably five years ago, you're looking at me like worldwide. Why don't you want yeah like I, don't. In I. Think Realizing I'm not sure what I had to say I'm not sure what I wanted to say. Just wanted to write a book, which is not the best place to right from. And then I went through the season of. coming out of leaving, everything is sort of. To pursue something, different of facing so many fears, I had in what many finally wanNA write. That story was realizing actually how universal was so going through this experience of I. Don't want to be true to who I am. Because that will disrupt too many people around me. And for people who don't know your story I know you've been on the podcast several times for people who don't know you what what was disruptive about who you were. Yes, so I was a a group in the church, and then I was a pastor to mega church. And then I discovered more about my own sexuality through meeting. My now wife, who was then my best friend. Use All right through that and in in that right coming out. That was not a place where it's okay to be gay. And not only that specific place, but the culture I grew up in like the church culture. The church seen in when you work at a church. It's not just your job, right? It's your friends. It's your family. It's your networks like I remember thinking if I don't work here. Can I work with a Christian College I e so workout if I can't work there camera, the other Christian College I used to go to like my whole network and world. And then deeper than that, my identity was really tied to believing certain things in in going to church on Sunday and knowing that God had a plan in it was a specific plan and and I was gonNA. Step outside of that in so like layers on my heirs of disrupting probably every structure in my life to the point and so that's. Part of what I wanted to write, because none of that was easy. Right in this life now that I'm. Grateful, for in could never have imagined. Life could be good, and I'm my marriage in this family were creating but it was so hard. It was so hard to get there and. Yeah and it felt it felt singular. Felt like I'm a mega church pastor who came out in and disrupted my whole life and is very specific. In at the same time. Highlight got messages like when we came out publicly. From people who had gotten divorced from people who have gotten pregnant before they're married people grip in the church and started realizing this common. Narrative and I was like. Wow, that is so that means so much to me what they're saying from like a different story. Absolutely nothing I started realize like. Oh, my gosh is is more universal truths. Happening here like more people should be allowed to to face this this reality and be true what they feel like they're. They need

Honeybees Need Your Help
"Today, a non coronavirus. You about honeybees from a guy who knows all about. Them Sami Ramsey Aka Dr Bugs. First of all can i. just ask you how you got that nickname, so actually got that title Doctor. Bugs while working at the Supreme Court of the United States I work with the Supreme Court in. I know, I know I was the only intern some measure and the deputy clerk of the court referred to me as bugs, and then told him that I was going for my doctor. He's like Oh, Dr Bugs so honestly, the Supreme Court just did not know how to handle your entomologist and all they could do was just yell but. They really did not know what to do with that. And of course, nickname stuck, which is perfect for savvy. A honeybee researcher at the US Department of Agriculture also props to the Supreme Court for taking an entomology and turn the best science. Yeah, I, said it. Okay. So how is play an important role in our ecosystem and for our economy, but the cells as you might have heard are not doing so hot. we lost. About forty percent of our honeybee colonies left with deeply concerning and unfortunately, as continued a trend over the past decade, or so of US losing close to thirty percent of our bees every year. And that could have huge consequences for all of us. So today the show what's killing the Bees Sammy Ramsey tells us what's driving these die-offs including a wild critter straight out of a horror movie. And he tells us what we can do to help the base. Two semi your friends, the honeybees. They're not doing well. Can you give us a quick snapshot of Why that matters Honeybees are dramatically importance to the environment in a number of different ways We could survive without them. We would just be really really bummed out because we would lose things like coffee. Avocados lemons limes oranges. Fruits and vegetables are pollinated by Honeybees, and while they wouldn't disappear entirely the huge amounts that we produce them in with simply be unsustainable, and they will become incredibly expensive prohibitively, so honeybees are worth more than eighteen billion dollars to the US economy every single year, primarily because of their pollination services in the night off that you mentioned earlier. Is this at all related to you know news reports that came out a few years back about bees kind of vanishing. Is that related to this dollars that a different thing? Who Okay here we go, so? We were talking about the colony collapse disorder. The defining quality was really that would open a colony that had been fairly productive, and just days before, and there would be pretty much nobis there. We have not seen that particular set of issues in more than half a decade now. We don't know whether it was a virus. Weather is a novel parasite whether it was just the confluence of. Of all of these different issues all coming together that the bees been dealing with stress climate change because it disappeared so sharply that we still haven't had the time to fully flesh out what occurred there. Okay, so so that is not what's going on now. That has subsided. We're not exactly sure what caused it. We're not exactly sure what ended it, but we're glad it's gone. So let's talk about the actual issues. That's making it hard for the bees to survive now so there's a triangle. Factors called the three piece, and that stands for parasites, pesticides and poor nutrition. These are the three main issues currently impacting honeybees now while colony collapse disorder is not still e problem. It did open our eyes to the fact that our bees are really unhealthy. What is? Is potentially the case. Is that colony collapse disorder isn't the issue. The bees were dealing with, but just sort of the punctuation mark at the end of a very long and very concerning sentenced about the state of honeybees around the world, so let's talk about the I p. the parasites you study that one that sounds like honestly to me a transformer. Tell me about that one. Varroa destructor does sound like a transformer, and while you might think that name is melodramatic, it's not I mean this parasite is off the wall wacky this parasite small about one point two millimeters long it climbs onto a be, and it will actually wedge itself between the exoskeletal plates that make up the bee's body so pretty much the be skin. It wedges itself under their. Their kinda levers one of the plates up and breaks through the skin under that with this mouse parts, and it releases this cocktail of digestive enzymes that break down the tissue in that region into a slurry, is literally turning the beasant cream of honeybees soup, and then sucking that out of their body so deeply concerned. You didn't have to say that with the Soup Yeah Sorry I you. It's a very good metaphor, but you didn't have to do. Well I. Want People to understand the horror story that honeybees are living through on a regular basis. It gives us more of a respect for them. You know. Yeah, okay, so let me get this right so this particular parasite this in. Might you know the way that it acts on the bees is extremely destructive in an also kind of them up suffer even more from poor nutrition exactly so let's talk about poor nutrition. What does food for a be look like in in? Why aren't they having much access to it? As they need great question so honeybees, the visit tons and tons of. Of Flowers, and they drink the nectar from these flowers. They transported back to the colony They regurgitate it into the cells. at they dehydrate it and turned it into honey they also collect pollen from these flowers, and all that pollen is used as a source of protein to then rear their offspring. So when these BS don't have a lot of pollen or nectar, they begin to starve, and they go into this stressed out sort of crisis mode. There's a lot of stress that they deal with as a result of that, and unfortunately, it's not just the matter of starvation. Them having a diet that is not. That can be really problematic. An individual, who is constantly eating French fries isn't starving, but they don't have the full complement of nutrition that they need in order to be healthy, and that's sort of the scenario that we have the bees in at this point and that doesn't allow the bees the sort of diversity that they need when they're feeding. Of Our land has been turned over for of course, the development for. So. There's a lot of monocultures out there of plants producing the exact same nutritive in their pollen. Okay, so final P. Pesticides. What are we talking about exactly? And what's kind of the problem? pesticides win used responsibly can be very effective at reducing the numbers of destructive insects that are destroying crops and keeping the cost of producing these crops down Now we have a lot of pesticides that are systemic there absorbed by the seed, and they ended up in different parts of the plant, such as the pollen or the nectar that has been collected by the bees and brought back. Back to the colony, and it moves all through the colony in addition to that there are chemicals like my decides mixed in with the herbicides and weed killers. People sprayed on their lawn, mixed with the Agricultural Insecticides while those chemicals may be used responsibly. We actually don't know what the interacting impact is for all of those different chemicals together. We've found that colonies on average have between three and four different chemicals in the colony anyone point and upwards of fourteen times, which can be really concerning, because we just can't account for all of the different effects that can have Gotcha Gotcha. So Okay Sammy if we as humans don't take actions to intervene. What. Do People that study? These think is going to happen. ooh, okay. We don't take action to intervene. I can tell you very clearly. There's going to be a dramatic economic impact without the bees. To produce those plants and native pollinators would take up some of the slack, but we would not be able to produce them nearly the large amounts that we produce them in. But I do want to say. Very clearly that this is being blown out of proportion by the magic of the Internet, people think that everyone will die if the B.'s disappear, but there are plenty of wind pollinated plants, corn rice, that cultures have lived off of for ages, and they've been fine. The problem is we will lose so much diversity in our diet and food would be a lot more expensive because there would be a massive drop in supply. Gotcha, so okay, what kind of solutions or things you know that we can do as a society would have the most impact in helping the Honeybee. Wonderful that Anyone can do. leave those dandelions alone. Don't mow the lawn in a way that is getting rid of all of the the difference Dandelions and things that we typically considered to be weeds, the wildflowers that spring up in your lawn. Bees love them. Leave them alone nowhere. We killer on those. And if you really want to be a huge help, plant tons of flowers and your front and backyard make a be sanctuary out of your living space. If more people did that, the issues that the bees deal with in terms of poor nutrition would be mitigated in a number of different ways, because bees are capable of self medicating if they can get a lot of resin and different kinds of nectar and pollen from flowers, able to medicate themselves, but they can't do that when they only have the offerings of that one plant. Okay Sammy I appreciate you and I appreciate the bees hall. That, warms my heart to hear I think. B.'s actually really love being appreciated. Well. Don't we? All I'm going to go home and not kill any dandelions implant some flowers. My Work here is done. Sammy Ramsey Aka Dr. Bucks and Tamala just with the US Department

Thank you I'm excited to be here. Just based on your bio. It sounds like you have had quite a vulnerable. Vulnerable Past, and so thank you so much first and foremost for coming in just being so in sharing with us. I mean it's not easy to talk about this stuff. It's not but for listeners it so helpful to realize that you're not alone. And I've learned that from other people sharing their stories. It's been super helpful for me, so figure I, might as well share mine and hope I can help a few people nia absolutely well. Let's hear your story was starting with. How much weight have you lost in? What was that like for you? Yes, so this saul started lull I mean it's been my whole life, but I started this whole transformation about three years ago now and I had weighed like event I gained. Probably fifty pounds heavier than I. Am right now and I was completely unhappy in job that was toxic to me and just realized that something needed to change some family history came into effect, and I realized that you know I need to get my health under control, and I wanNA stop feeling like crap. I'm sick of it, and I decided to leave my job, and once I did that I mean a huge weight was lifted off me and I realized that I can do more I can find a new job I can take my own path. And jumped into some lifestyle changes I started just with a goal of losing I think it was five pounds at the beginning and was like this is never going to happen, but I'm going to set it. I'm going to try it. And I did a thirty day cleanse and had lost like fifteen. He's like Oh. Yeah, I think more of this can happen so. I kept changing diet more and more into a plant based Diet and have found that that's what my body thrives on. Can I feel more energized I sleep better. Digestion is regular and just mentally I am in so much of a better place I. Mean I still struggle with things -iety depression here and there, but the way I handle. It is completely did a couple years ago. So even just changes in Diet has been huge, and once I started losing weight I was like I can keep losing weight like a clearly have weight to lose, and can be so much healthier so I was tracking working with Dr on blood tests, and like even things like my cholesterol had changed significantly so huge transformation, and over like six months I had lost fifty pounds. and was feeling great so like I need to keep it this way because this is. This is where I feel good. This is my sweet spot. Wow, fifty pounds in sixty days. Did you say six five six months? Yeah, fifty pounds in six months. That is a lot that's congratulations into lot of struggle. Well, there's so many amazing takeaways from the story that you just shared and one that I took away. That I'm constantly reminding myself of reminding my listeners of is, don't try to bite off the whole chunk. Right at I just take. Some bites little baby steps to get. You started because you know. Had you started your journey outgoing? Will you okay I'M GONNA LOSE FIFTY POUNDS? You know that that is such a hit hard mentality to get into, but to start a journey off going. You know what I'm just GONNA lose five pounds. And once you achieve that little bit of success. It opens up these doorways. It opens up something in your brain. That allows you to say. Wow, I'm capable of that. What else am I capable of yeah I guarantee? If I had a goal of fifty pounds, I wouldn't have lost anything. It was all I need to start small I. Need to take it little by little, and once you reach your goals you. Successful you can do it so I. found that setting smaller milestones was a way to get me to my goal. I want also just the beginning of your story. It makes me think about how many people out there legitimately wake up every day and just feel like crap you know and we are magnificent human beings. We should be living life to the fullest and I know that that's that sounds like such a cliche, and it's super hard to do. I mean we live. Live in a capitalist fast pace, competitive, harsh society, and is not always easy to say oh. Let me seize the day. Let me get the most out of my life. Let me craft my life by design, but if you're one of those people that are waking up pretty much every morning and every night when you come home and every time you sit down at work, you go. I just feel like crap. Then I, guarantee you. There are little changes that you can do. Do to change your circumstances. Yes, like Sammy. What do you think was the key to just starting in? And what were some of your favorite tools that you used along the way I think for me like at the beginning I didn't realize how crappy I felt like I knew I didn't feel good, but I didn't know how good I feel, so it's like I'm just GonNa. Try a little bit I started working with the chiropractor and we came up with a thirty day. Day Plan for Diet changes, and that was huge I started a program and stuff to it and I. I think being able to stick to. It was really good for me, but I also feel like. I was almost overly dedicated. Focusing on other things I was really focused on that weight loss when I could have been focused on I. WanNa feel better. It's not necessarily about the weight and the number on the scale. I want to be able to feel better and. That was kind of my take away. After the thirty days I was really focused on weight. And then I was like you know what there's more to this because I can feel good, I can be less anxious I mean decreased medications, anxiety and insomnia so much since I started this, and it was just huge in realizing that food can kind of control you and it can control your body, so it's amazing. How just reducing that inflammation in the Gut can help heal other
'Long Gone Summer' Documentary Revisits Controversial 1998 Home Run Chase
"Are joined by the director of long gone. Summer AJ SCHMUCK AJ. Congratulations loved watching that film. What does it feel like to have the film finally be seen by the world. I mean it's crazy. It's a been a long journey to get to this point, and it feels like a total miracle to have finished. With the pandemic and working separately with all my team so finally being able to get the film done and get it's ESPN. Feels like a huge accomplishment. Why did you decide to start the dock with the actual baseball's that mark mcgwire hit. Well is in part because we. When we met Todd McFarlane The Great Comic Book Artist Entrepreneur Who who bought all the balls or a bunch of balls including at number seventy. I just love the way he talked about the home run, and how it is something that really connects baseball fans to the game in a way that you don't get in any other sports so as soon as we like walked out of of interviewing him, I I turned to my producer, and said you know that's the beginning of the film. Is Him talking about what the home run in baseball means and how it connects fans, drinks have direct contact between Maguire's bat, and and the person who catches it. So that was that was great also has sort of the other. Bonus. Positive thing of reminding you that someone paid more than three million dollars. Baseball that's how big this was That's how much this took over the country that someone would would go to that extent. To own that ball. Having when watching that scene in Rhode. explained. HOW MICHAEL JORDAN HITS! A shot wins the championship. They go and bring him the basketball, and if if a quarterback breaks a record with the past, bring him the football, but with the home run. You literally hit into the stands, and you never see it again and it was sort of a way that the fan can take home a piece of the game in baseball. They can't other any other way. Way that happens with the home run, but then you did you hear him sort of articulate this, and then the question is asked how much you pay for it. It was just so much money that I wanted to know. How does this? How much are they paying people that bitter comic book illustrators, nowadays like what is the going rate for commentator Peter? How can this man afford this multimillion dollar baseball? Spun was very successful, but yeah I think. He spent basically every penny he owned and you know I I think in part. He did it because he he wanted to get into the business of making action figures for for sports. And and that happens I, mean he basically that was his way of getting everyone's attention in saying. Hey, I'm serious I. Care About Sports Let me make action figures, and and he did I think it was not only something that he wanted to do one thing that didn't make the film which I I tried to find a way to put it in, but he talked about how. His brothers are all baseball fans, one of the key excitement for him in getting the balls with just to be able to say I've got the baseball. As like well. You got three million dollars for that God. Bless Ya. I know that's right. The kid sweet swinging lefty King Griffey Junior, one of my favorite players growing up as Wa. Carry a bet to this day. was more of a factor. With Sosa mcgwire that people actually a realize. Can you acknowledge how his performance affected them? Certainly I mean one of the crazy things I think about that. Season was that people really went into it from spring training, thinking that either Maguire or junior were gonNA. Make this record. Both of them at hit and high fifties the year before this was an expansion year. Everyone just thought like this is GonNa happen went into the season, thinking that Griffey was was in it. You know right I think if you even remember the Griffey was in it. You forget that he was in it until late August when he had kind of a long slump I think he only hit one one home run and like twenty games and may still hits. Hyphen! which is a tremendous season that gets overlooked by what happened with mcgwire and Sosa, but certainly yeah I mean congruency. Junior had an amazing year that year and. It was in a in addition to to all the stuff. We remember of Sosa and mcgwire. He was. He was hitting the ball longer. In Maguire was sort of famously one of the bash brothers, and he had a great career while he was in Oakland with the athletes and Sammy Sosa wasn't as celebrated as a baseball player, and he said something in the film that really hit accord me, said quote ahead had to continue hitting. Because if not, they're not going to mention me. Why did you include that emphasized that and what that means you from Sami? I thought it was great. It Sammy acknowledged that he wanted to the respect. He thought he deserved, and he does that a few times I think in the film and I mean that's sort of a lighthearted way of like saying like. I turned on sports center at night and if I don't hit a home run like they're not gonNA mentioned. He wanted to be mentioned. He wanted to be acknowledged and I think that one of the things I hope that the film does Sami. Wasn't that well known outside of Chicago before ninety eight, but. That's in part because the comes weren't very good, but the Sammy was was a great player for the cubs. A thirty thirty guy I thirty thirty guy ever in cubs history. He was a top home run hitter in the National League for years. I was one year where he was on track to get close to the record. But was injured in in August so You know was a goal to sort of illuminate. The fact that Sami wasn't just somebody who like. Jumped out of nowhere in June of Nineteen Ninety eight that he meant something in Chicago before that. Implant in Chicago, the weather can be a factor. Do you believe it play as much of a factor as Sammy Sosa states. I mean all I can tell you that. We were there in May of last year to shoot the Saint Louis Chicago series in their. Earliest! May and it's snowed one morning. And I was just like. I grew up in southern Illinois outside the St, Louis and I love Chicago. Chicago is great, but I was just like hell though. Away being at the game it was cold. It was rainy and it was just like damn out. This is football. Weather's that I don't know but yeah. No. I definitely know He. He I believe in when he says he's. He was a hitter that did better when it got warm. Not that good of a hitter in the cold. Certainly, see see that that would be the case. Which I think is also in the film. You'll see you know one of the things that makes a Kerry Wood's twenty strikeout game. All the more impressive is that he's. He's doing it on one of those days, and the rain is coming down east going through like You know thirteen fourteen fifteen strikeouts that day, so? Yeah! It's whether in and regularly I think is probably no joke. With all of what's happening in our society in the world, not just in our country today we kind of have to look at things in stories in history, and currently through the filter of race. And how do you think race played a role in this particular story of mcgwire and Sosa and that summer? I think that people wanted to feel good about the fact that they liked this battle between these two guys who were from different cultures different countries. And different races. That probably made people want pat themselves on the back for feelings so good about it I think in part there still memories of what had happened to Hank Aaron and sort of the ugliness when he was. Setting the all time home run record. So people felt like. Wow, look at how far we've come to celebrate and get excited about the fact that this could be. A champion of homerun record that was held by either of these two guys. There's a somewhat famous. Cartoon! Where the two of them are depicted with their bats wall has been broken in the wall, says racist. You know like that. The two of them had finally solved this problem. They beaten it. And I think. It's just a you know. It's one of those times when. People have wanted to. Congratulate themselves for reaching a certain. Threshold and clearly all of those congratulations were way premature. And we're still. We're still fighting for it. I hope that the people. Look at this though as a story of these two champions, and can get some excitement out of the fact that they did come from different backgrounds, and they have very different stores,

Came to bachelor as a friend, introduce me the company would we were in college and I checked every single week for new positions at applied as soon as I saw community manager obviously kill the interview, and here I am A. Member you dead yeah. Let's she. She's the one. Home, but yeah I've been with or year my general background quick life story I am a biracial woman. Half Black Half Puerto Rican, I grew up in predominantly white situations though I live in. A general area where there's a high population of Jewish people I went to summer camp at the Jewish community center. My High School I went to private Catholic high school so very commonly predominantly white areas and I feel like that's sort of in. All that's going on. I have a lot of white friends. Because of those situations growing up, and it's just sort of really brought my attention how? You know people who are in the black community are reacting all. That's going on what they're doing on and off social media how they're handling just with either with me or with other of or with other black friends or family, or what have you how they're handling? You know checking in on those people making sure that they're able to do something meaningful to help the cause so just before we get into the wellness piece of the conversation since you are. Passionate about wellness we're just wanted to. How are you feeling in general? At this time. Very. Tired in, not just like. Oh, I've been doing stuff all day. I'm tired type of way. It's something in a way I've never really experienced before I think that. I've been fortunate enough not to say that you know this is a bad thing if people experience it or that. I haven't had periods of extreme sadness before, but I don't think I've ever really suffered from. Depression on a deep level, but I imagine that some of the things that I'm feeling are connected to the. It's like constantly feeling fatigued and unmotivated, and even though even with works today I obviously. Am You know doing all that? I tell us if you were to to work. It's like really. Like tiptoe around that element. Not yet not yet. I know that I could. I could tell you if that was the case, but I'm not at that point, but definitely. Unmotivated in the sense of even. Working with editorial, they've asked me if I would want to write certain things, Mike. I I just feel like it would take me a full day to even write a short article, and that's something that's very unlike the I'm very fascinated. Typing in general coming up ideas, you know well. We're in things, but. Just feeling very very challenged in doing everyday things in regards to that, and then having to this sort of internal battle of staying informed which obviously I want to do, and obviously I've been doing but. It's it's hard seeing the same things over and over and over seeing all these you know, all these protests have gone left because of interference or people who were taking things out of context, urges seeing all these devastating videos of. Black Yoke, getting her or abuse, or whatever the case might be or people exploiting the bad things that are happening amongst the black community, making jokes out of it or making stupid Internet challenges, item it and it's. It's hard to to keep exposing myself to that every day, but I know it's something that. I have to percents because I can't. I can't rely. On others to keep me keep me knowledgeable in the way that I I. I need to be for myself.

"Espn radio all throughout the a the author of this Sammy Watkins Article for bleacher. Report Tyler done is GonNa join us in a half hour. If you've not seen the story he will condense it for you and it is as unusual and interview as you will find anywhere in sports. Usually guys with alternative beliefs. Don't express them while they're still playing. That is not a normal usual thing in the antiseptic cliche of the locker room. It was A. You're going to be shocked that I read this. But it was it was it was very well written. I thought it had the right tempo and the right urgency attached to a story. Like this and op telling you Dan. I been inside for so long that I am willing to go down just about any path. I am not ruling out. What's Emmy Walk into telling me in terms of dimensions and knowing things and we're constantly dying and coming back to life? I am not ruling anything out at this point.

"sammy" Discussed on Let's Be Real with Sammy Jaye
"I think this is a point where we should talk about toxic masculinity. Because there's such a stigma with that. I'm actually really excited because I don't know what this is. Susan Finale this come from there I know and so I thought I want to change things up in my brother my best friend and he has been. He's The basketball expert besides my dad. They are both so. I thought I'd bring him on just two adamant to the conversation of because he also plays basketball. He's done it his entire life so think it'd be interesting mark. Hello what an introduction. It's Sammy J podcast. I'm honored to be on here. Sammy Seriously Kevin have been a huge fan for a very long time inspiration. So you've talked about basketball your entire life. You're not as tall as Kevin but I know you try. What have you faced in high school because you played basketball he was? You're the senior captain right so Kevin and now. We have kind of different statutes in terms of accomplishments but I was a four year varsity player. I don't know if intimidates you a little bit but now I do know exactly what it feels like to not necessarily be able to feel like you're in a comfortable environment to especially motions especially in the locker room environment. Did you ever experience just the toxicity of not being able to kind of say how things were straight up in how? You're feeling so I think the biggest thing that I noticed in high school in general was okay so I was never. I was never a like a bully by any means but sometimes I would because I wanted to be accepted so bad or because of how I was feeling I would try to be you know like the class clown or the funny guy and some of the time. It was at other people's expense mark to your point You know when I was in high school I was I was I grew up in Right outside of Portland Oregon but I was kind of a I was a big fish in a smaller pond. It wasn't the smallest Place Portland Oregon. But I didn't necessarily like the way I played or like the success. We had like where I was from so if I would go out in public I would hear a lot of the same things I felt like I had to. You know never go through life and in smaller spaces and make the world smaller for myself and that was not a good feeling and I like my social anxiety got so bad when I got into the NBA especially like my third through seventh or. Yeah probably third through seventh year. That I wouldn't there'd be very few times. Why go places or go outside? And I've really really worked on that. Probably some cases literally by by exposure therapy just like okay. You know what I'm just GonNa go at know that I'm doing nothing wrong because all the time and I'm doing something wrong or somebody's taking a picture of me or or somebody's GonNa say something to me. I'm going to get caught up or it just smells your therapy. Oh my goodness the hardest thing I've ever had to do nowadays. And I'm sure it's amplified. The further you go from high school I was. I was being recruited for college ball but then ended up playing and then to the NBA. I'm sure that attention. That pressure amplifies and with social media. Nowadays there's an expectation for middle school huber to be posting highlight tapes. You know like you don't have game unless you're really showing it on video and that's that's just ridiculous thing so being that things are changing for younger players especially social media. You came into the League. I wrote an article about you in a school newspaper in Fifth Grade. It was a couple of weeks after you just had a thirty thirty game. Breaking the record. Moses Malone set in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven I'm I'm a basketball junkie like I live and breathe this sport and so seeing that happen rows really young. That was incredible for those who don't know Thirty thirty game or a double double is having ten or more in any statistics. So ten rebounds ten points. Kevin had thirty rebounds. I think it was thirty. One and thirty one live field to set such high standards for yourself at your third year in the League. And you're doing and you're having thirty thirty game like like how does that feel. I didn't feel about the future going. Full yeah no I felt. I felt very good about that because I felt I mean that was the year I had made my first all star game and I believe I was twenty two at the twenty two or twenty three at the time and I felt really good in my game and start feeling really comfortable with expanding in a in a game. That was that has changed even radically since then. It's become so much paces. Phase shooting the three ball and getting the shots is getting more shots up and get you know scores in the twenties thirties and forties. But no I felt really really good about where my game was at and even just speaking of anxiety or even melancholy depression type Feelings I I read a book called Lincoln's melancholy. Where Abraham Lincoln his. His depression drove him into great things. And I think my anxiety to you know have to be in the gym and and you know living out of in some cases a lot of it was was fear I channel that and thankfully I channel that in such a great way that a lot of great things happened in my in my basketball game and as a product of that the world started opening up a now I don't. I'm so much less fear based than I used to be but I think that was well. That drove me. Integrate things that was also something that was was really self self limiting but this That was really the start of big things that had happened for me that I was in Minnesota. That was when you were the number. One guy that was that was a big bowl to seventy five southbound on me. I was freaking out. That was a big moment. You were coming out with the big outlet but for me seeing you go from thirty thirty games number one guy in Minnesota you're playing with Westbrook. Ucla you talk about. How anxiety may have driven some of those performances. But I'm curious and a lot of players are really bad. You know changing roles with playing with different guys you've played with Kyrie the Bron- number guy in Minnesota you're the veteran guy on Cleveland. Now you're UCLA. How have you been able to change your roles self fluidly in the League when so many guys get caught up with ego or money or whatever it may be? They just can't can't mess with other guys. Yes having anxiety as well. That's true. Change is hard to not just part of my overall growth. I think that the hardest transition I did was going from Minnesota to Then Cleveland and becoming the third guy with two. I mean unbelievable general generational type players so I think the hardest thing was. Yeah I think once I looked internally and had to pass the mirror test for myself it was more Okay it's at some bad habits that I needed to get rid of and I needed to. This is the first time I really had to sacrifice part of my game of the better team and I didn't know what that meant so the learning curve was a little bit different than would have been on a team if I was still going to be the number one guy or even the second guy so I really and I really had to change my game like I wasn't really playing inside basketball anymore. What had really that was my bread and butter and my whole game was the whole life. Yeah exactly my whole life. Had you know you play inside out but It took me about just you know. Probably of playing together six to eight months and then I really started to get it until and then in two thousand sixteen. We ended up winning the championship and had a couple all-star years after that and the rest is history but that was a just for the overall growth process was extremely important for being off accord. I just I felt like I had kind of seen everything and in a way You know almost pretty much done everything with so much basketball left to play. You made the transition so effortlessly going from rebounding for to a stretch for you know being able to shoot threes because you look at like twenty fifteen and what Steph curry did and you really look at like who influenced basketball guys like trae young Lonzo Ball Lamelo all those younger player here without their like he could shoot anywhere and is almost automatic. That's incredible how do you think the NBA is going to evolve in the feature was crazy? We looked at a. We looked at his stat this year. Where in the last five years post ups? If you just look at post-ups they're down. Fifty percent in the last five years so four men and five and are stepping out and shooting threes whereas I grew up watching nineties era basketball. Are you run down and just throw it into the big and then you play off of him whereas that's more like okay space the floor you're one-two-three come down. They make a play. And you know you just kind of see what happens. Try to get. The pace. Pace is crazy. The pace is what's crazy but I think steph changed the game and then a guy that I grew up love love to watch him was any retired. Last year was dark and he was seven foot tall. He's European that major influence in that regard but he just stepped out. Was that guy plan all everywhere on the floor but coming down and transition shooting threes plan off the dribble step back shooting threes. It was just for me that changed the way I looked at where the game was going and fortunately I had a dad who played it. He could really shoot it as well but he goes. You GotTa Watch this type of Guy. Because this is you know. He had the foresight to go. Okay this is. This is what the future is going to be right here right and because you look at that kind of person that kind of player and it just it's like a Unicorn and there's so much more valuable I'm being okay. I could talk to you about basketball forever. I likes basketball. I have leave you one more question. You're you're depending on the end of this question. You were or you are. A game of thrones fan was until maybe the last season but there you go. I am Mennonites Watch. I'm a fan and I know you are too. I remember a press conference vividly of YOU BEING THANKFUL. I gotTA GO Atlanta series. I think but that was fun. Yes for me. What what did you think of how this series at the end? It was just kind of how they people storylines got cut. Everything got merged together. Like you know. sorry spoiler alert but like brand to then end up being the king and like. Yeah Yeah are you going to watch the PREQUEL though for sure? Because I'm I'm really into that as well. He's been trying to get me to watch. Game of thrones but I just I haven't committed what you do. Is You hearing from the ending. I don't know if I should. You have to get through the eighth or ninth episode where it's Ill in the whole golf. That's that's that's when you're like. Oh this is different because I'm scared to try a show where the endings awful because how. I met your mother scarred me controversial not really that. I don't WanNa Watch another show with I personally love when it doesn't always end the way you want it to like kind of like there's a book to be taken to all levels of emotion and that like just it takes me like stabbed me in the side. They kill off the mother. It is hold on. Hold on running your mother. It's a running joke in our family about people how we can judge their character based on whether or not they like the ending of the. Hi Amy Series Finale. Having why did you say that? This has been a great conversation and all of a sudden we just talk about. And I'd just I blew it. Okay nobody's GonNa let me thank you mark for coming on my podcast. You so much for being more questions for you. Kevin quickly to meet you. Nice to meet you too buddy. Kevin you've had such tremendous success and you've also been through a lot. What would you tell your younger self? Who Speak Your Truth? Speaking truth I wish I could you know if something that I need to do. Some like a project that I need to do is like right a right something to my younger self. Like what what I would tell him. Because he was a book. It could be a book. It very very well could be a book. I mean it's it's I don't know had the presence of mind at that age to just either take a breath or or know that you know everything's GonNa be okay because I had a crisis a hope and I think at at at that level that's at the root of.

It is next month will be four years four years since we met and just to give everybody context maxwell was there when I was quote unquote discovered and he was there during the Jordan Fisher in your view and I remember. I was sitting in the chair. And then you're like no you're going to like you're sitting in the big chair your sitting hosting chair and okay. I'm about to show you this photo. Okay you gotta be kidding me. This feels on my back. I know as you said you. I hopped in the chair. Where Jordan like next to him and I'm like no. You're in the commander seat. This is all you so. I don't know if you want to start with this. I'm so freaking proud of you do like you. You Sat in that chair and you never left so super cool. I remember when I started here.

Oh my God it's crazy for years now. Seriously it has been I. I mean I remember my first thought of when you came through and sitting back in and having a little sidebar conversation with dad while we were watching you do your thing and we kind of glanced over at each other like this a couple of times like wait a second. There's I was scared in my heart for a little bit because I'm like there is no way that I'm going to have a job in eight years if she continues down this path right here. You're so flipping good dude. I remember you said to my dad's so how many is she done and you're like Oh this is her first. And you're like no one hundred percent. I mean not to be turned into a big old good fest but was the coolest thing to watch somebody with so much passion like just really jump in because it's scary it's dating and you're hanging out with one of the biggest stars on Earth. I mean we all know Jordan Fisher has gone on to do and you like it was no big deal to you. Took the bull by the horns as they saying win with. I was freaking out. I remember I got to cut gym class for that. It was like. Hey Jim.

"Wow you know when I watched You're wrong com the perfect day within those brought me back to like the old round coms that I I was fair. Wrong Com okay Crazy stupid love great great movie. It's complicated around gum but like all love it with streep right. I think is my favorite ROM COM for sure. I've watched it a million times times more. What about you. How great side note before I was just watching dirty dancing which is just climbing ever seen dirty dancing so good. It's not really a ROM com say icon ICK But it made me think of crazy stupid love when he's like the move. Oh it's such a good when they have the fight in the backyard and I just love Ryan Gosling Emma Stone together. I know that when they do the whole lifts an apartment. I'm like Oh my God. Yeah what's your favorite wrong on each other. So many I like love so money. I love clueless. I love to things I hate about you. Yeah on the making them so clearly. I love the I really do. They are they as fun to make to watch. Yeah Yeah I think There everything's always just intense like to film because we're not sleeping and we have stuff to do and it can get tense on sad and but with every project I've ever worked on. There's always an aspect of funding. There has to be because that's the whole reason why we're doing everything we're doing And those are definitely particularly fun. I think for Christmas wish off the Greg Salkin. Yes that one was super special because it was just like you felt like you were in Christmas. Land it was wonderful. I the way I think you should die your hair pink from that of thank you. You genuinely rocked it. Thank you you ever do that. I'm way too scared to do that but go for. I could wear a wig. The WIG look good but I think you could pull it off like Jack Chesley. I dyed my hair every time I do if I'd like to blonde right because I've done like the the crazies I've ever done is like blond off highlights. Yeah Blonde Highlights Sammy. Candle is so crazy of but always like just hurts my hair a little bit the idea that just say no yes. There's this hair mask that actually helps your hair and dies it at the same time. Is this magical edstrom from. I think the brand Moroccan oil. Oh I love it said hair so it helps your hair and dies it so if you ever get highlights again and it will come out over time so if you ever wanted blonde again he can temporarily and putting in quotes Diet. I tried it with pink and it worked. How long was your hair pink weaker to depend on how much you wash it but like I loved it all? This is like a game changer. I read of doing this. I think I think of doing this. Your daughter Dodd. Do you want to do it? Go matching let's go. Let's do it. I feel like pink. We could both rock their hair's like I love the Color Harris. I know I it's it's a newly blunder and you don't realize how much how much better you feel after some times like you get it like a little bit different only Harrison. Do you know what I'm dot. Yeah because you look in the Mirror. And you're like WHOA. This looks different. And then you're like wait. I love every single thing about this so like I'm blonder and this morning I've had this hair for a little bit now. I looked in the mirror. Like WHOA I. I'm blonde and like I knew it mean it just takes time to register. I know exactly what you mean You're like wait. I didn't look like this before but like I love it and then also it's like when you just get like a big haircut and if your hair's long whoa your hair was so long it just like it puts you in a different perspective. I know and I cut all my hair. Not all of it would I had A. I had a major moment of. I just want to change everything in life. I was going through a relationship change. I was getting a new place to move into. I was changing exactly so just like cut my hair off the most satisfying liberating it. Wait is literally yes. It was so liberating I loved it and then I cut it again and I cut really short and it kind of worked out perfectly. It wasn't for the perfect date. But kinda was around. Say you had really short hair and that man. That was actually a year. After I'd I cut it on no way. Yeah because I just kept cutting I love the and then we went so sure no way. No no I hate it a growing back now. Yes yes and I'm it's actually grown so much but now I'm a little bit like okay. We all love that is growing back and I'm happy it's back but I'm bored again. I'm like what can I I need to do. This Harris obviously going to be. It's going to be great well for new music. Are we talking new hairstyle? I mean maybe let's do pink hair new me new music new hair. I am totally down for this. I love it. I've like you're you've been my inspiration Sam and I love the NBD okay. Here's what I'm thinking. Touch me girl. I met ask you a question and just think about it for my gosh pressures on right so after you know put more music out. Probably wouldn't if you GRAMMYS OSCARS SAM. How do you want to be remembered in? What do you want your legacy to be? That's a great deep in introspective. I try to soften question yarn philosophy. I am majoring in philosophy. I WANNA be remembered helping people and connecting the people I think for me. That's the whole reason why I think we're all here is to connect with each other and if I can create some sort of art that that happen be it. Entertainment be it thought provoking whatever it is but being able to connect people and connect to people is something that. I definitely want to be remembered for and I beyond that I would think helping people anything I can do to help. People again. I think it's like everything's a little bit worthless if you're not using your platform using anything in your life to help other people and connect to people Laura. I'm so happy. Thank you for coming on this. Podcast in Flasher thank you so much for having me your so flipping awesome. Sammy you've just given me a device.
"sammy" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"This cat is interesting man. I don't know if everybody's picking up on it. Did you know this before because this is your pick right? Yeah Yeah I've always been pretty fascinated with him because we haven't even got to weird and interesting stuff. Yeah right Which happens in the seventies so in the sixties is when and possibly because of the JFK. Treatment is when he really starts to get more socially aware. starts donating money to the cause and marches at Selma For the civil rights efforts He when he supported Nixon. It was not just thumbing of the nose. It at Kennedy but he bought into Nixon and thought that it was gonna be a good choice for black America He regretted that later on. Of course sure but it wasn't just Poopie pants move. Like hey while. I'm going to support Knicks. Now because you disinvited me exactly and so One of the other reasons that he embraced Nixon that Nixon embraced him as a human being and really stood in stark contrast to the treatment he received from Kennedy And I know Nixon actually seemed to really like Sammy Davis Junior that a lot of people like the Nixon administration was just using. Sammy Davis Junior year at the same time using what's called the southern strategy. Which is they were stoking. Racism among southern whites to get them to turn on the Democrats and But he also apparently really did like. Sammy Davis Junior. In mired him and under Nixon administration tastes like bitter acids saying Sammy Davis. Junior became the first black person to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom and apparently saves junior was an avid Lincoln fan and sleeping in the Lincoln bedroom with some of Abraham Lincoln and Mary. Todd Lincoln's personal effects in this room just blew him away. I'm sure and that was actually how he ended up in Vietnam doing this. Uso Tour Nineteen seventy-two. He said what can I do to help? And Nixon said that would probably that would probably help a lot but that just contributed even further to his alienation from not just black people but young black people too because it was a really tone-deaf move as I saw described described at the time. That was not the kind of thing you did. Vietnam was so unpopular that even the troops were particularly supported at home. You know today where it's like you know we really really hate this. You know these endless wars we really disagree with the you know the Hawks and the Military Industrial Complex it supports. But we're we're still going to be supportive of the troops who have to go there. Who are over there whether by their own choice or while I guess it's all volunteer army They still deserve support. These individuals over there overseas that was not necessarily how it was during the Vietnam era. So Sammy Davis Junior going over there to support the troops after embracing the Nixon Administration. Really Furthered this rift between him and the black community. Which and I don't know we really said. This enough was unfair and unjust because he was a fervent supporter of the civil rights movement. During the the fifties and sixties. Yeah I mean I it like he marched in Selma with Martin Luther King Junior scared to death apparently but he's still went and he still did it. He contributed a ton of money to the civil rights movement He was he was legit for sure but he also was You know friends with Richard Nixon. So one kind of one kind of tarnishes. The other you know for sure. So in the sixties He is blown up. He's everywhere he's on stage he's recording records he's on TV. He's doing celebrity roast. He's on Broadway. He's writing books. He's doing the gunslinger thing He's making a lot of money at this point and start spending a lot of money because he came from nothing like we said This is when the rat pack thing really heats up He's hanging out with Joey Bishop Peter Lawford Dean Martin and of course Chairman Right And started their first movie together. Which was Ocean's eleven not a great movie? Oh disagree And I think the originals not very good. I liked it I thought the remake was great but Did NOT CARE. I'd like the original Hanging in Robin and the seven hoods. Yeah also not great. I don't think the rat pack ever made a great movie. Okay that's just my opinion. What about time bandits? Fantastic okay They were hanging out at The Coconut Grove in the Ambassador Hotel which is a place that? I have a neat little story. I did a commercial shoot there before they tore it down and it. Was You know an empty hotel at this point that they just use for movie shoots and it was an overnight thing and like two in the morning? I was working in the art department. They said here you need to go. Assemble all these Flags we're going to hang and they said just go in the in the coconut grove and do it because there's plenty of room in there and I went in there all by myself sitting in coke it than the the dusty old shadows of what was once the great coconut Grove and For like an hour and a half by myself like sitting in a booth at the rat pack might have set in. Let's amazed really pretty neat and later that night. Got To go see where Bob Kennedy was shot. Oh that's where he was shot in the Ambassador Hotel Room and the kitchen and one of the overnight security guy it was just sort of one of the slow shoots. He was like to me and my friend. He's like you. WanNa go down the kitchen to happen and we went. Oh yeah wow the tomatoes. Super Cool and creepy. Wow so anyway story. They're they're hanging out with the rat pack And this is where it gets a little like dodgy because the Ratpac they were all best buds they genuinely loved each other but when you look at their old stick there is a lot of sort of racial joking about Sammy It's all in good fun but they were. They were often jokes made about him being black. The only black member Dean Martin. One of his famous jokes was he would pick little sammy up on stage because Dean was a guy and Samuel Small and Thank the audience For the In double ACP award so stuff like that so in that in that documentary and I'm not like justifying that at all but in the documentary Whoopi. Goldberg is like you know. Can you could take any segment of their show and be like. This is really offensive jer. Italians or alcoholics or women or black people or Jews and she said they. They went hard on everybody but from what I understand at least as far as Sammy was concerned he wasn't secretly didn't secretly have a chip on his shoulder and he had to just put up with this to be a member of the rat. Pack seem to really not like he didn't take it as if they were being Hostile or cruel that it was out of the act and that's how he took it. Yeah I mean it was certainly different time. I mean there was for sure no doubt about it back then you could make jokes about all kinds of things you can joke about now. Yeah like it's not like I'm used to hang out with. Sammy Davis Junior and had like quiet talks with them or whatever so it is possible that he did you know harbor resentment from it. But that's not the impression that I have from from the research I've done. Let me tell you Josh Right. But apparently no one did because is a really bizarre thing about him when when he was talking about converting to Judaism I think in like nineteen sixty six playboy interview He was talking about losing his eye. And then converting to Judaism in that it happened during a period of soul-searching in that he did all this and went through all this even though he was convalescing at Frank. Sinatra's house even though apparently Jerry Lewis spent seven days at his bedside when he was in the hospital. Had all these telegrams coming in all this outpouring support. He considered himself alone and he was a loner and that was. That's really bizarre. When you step back and look at that because Sammy Davis Junior always had friends. He was always the life of the party. He was always a good guy. Everybody wanted to be around him He was always having fun but he considered himself a loner. Apparently he didn't let people in. Yeah so even if I had been hanging around with them he probably wouldn't have had that conversation yet me anyway. You like Sammy. I don't feel like I know the real you come on. Sammy let them he said. That's by design Bab. I feel like I'm tripping or something right now so his careers booming in the in the sixties and ended the seventies and the result of that of course Well through the sixties. I guess is that he's not around much He had a lot of regrets about not being around as a father. as a husband he was flattering. He was drinking a lot. He was using drugs So in nineteen sixty eight he got divorced in. Nineteen seventy he married a woman named Out of East Gore who is eighteen years his junior great name a backup dancer. His children did not like the fact that she was so much younger But they were stayed married for the rest of his life. Yeah he was like. Oh if you got a problem with her you should probably not know about everything else. I'm doing. Yeah so here's where it gets really interesting Very Interesting Sammy. Davis junior had a convergence of two interests in the seventies He became a member of the Church of Satan. He was an honorary warlock and he got really really into porn.

"Had serves thank you. I don't talk show. You should have waited sponsorship. Could have done something there. Sorry sorry I do. Think that Like social media gives up and COMING ARTISTS. And even you know artists to have done well Like such a platform to get their stuff out. You don't mean back in the day it was just like radio and TV and Record sales and stuff but now it's like so easy to get your stuff out there and that I mean we took advantage of that growing up and Mike. I think that's a big reason why we met each other. Why reinvent and I think like I was actually really proud of myself for this Last year when my anxiety was pretty bad. I shut off my phone for olive winter break. I had so much extra time. I learned how to play the equally screen. Time is twelve hours a day. It was really bad. That's good. Check your screen my screen time right now. My screen time Senate hour and forty minutes you get onto this thing. The time limit at the time is totally bypassing. A if you respect that you put it in there. Yeah my screen. Time is oh three. Oh no worse. That's pretty much my green six at one point. My screen time is pretty bad because I was watching you to use. That's six mine is at and keep in mind. It's only early in the afternoon is down from last seven hours hours but it's down sixty two percent from that so it must just be an wink. Free audience down forty four percent from last week. Oh my God. What does that mean? And now you're not crazy. Everyone in the whole world like turned off their phone. Doing I wonder how much more learn that month like like you learned the Ukulele good one. I spent three hours on his melon with no eight goes on that looking. I spend three hours. Settings did know on instagram. And out of nowhere you click the back button like twenty seven times because you've just been like clicking people's profiles but if music and if he had never entered her life would you be doing now. I probably would we be pro. I WanNa know what I'd be doing to be honest. I don't know what I would be doing all right. What was your question i? I wanted to be an astronaut. So maybe space center near yeah literally like builds and spaceship starts coolest job. Well it yes I think are being college probably studying business or something Architect buildings yeah. I was about to go to college architecture before. Oh cool building in a weird way. I know a lot of people hate math. Solve it in a second edition Algebra. Say I like calculus geometry shapes. Don't even fundamentals? I could've gone into math but like the only thing was like. When am I going to use these algorithms and stuff in my actual architect? I architects. Don't go do. I understand that like that can like learning how to do. All that can like advance your brain and learn how to do other things that makes it. If you're going to be a journalist you do not need probably not. I don't know I think people need to like just remember that high school and College. It's only a certain amount of time because I can't figure out what you'll ever get so caught up in like. Oh my God. These grades love you. Know hardware does off good. I mean it definitely sets up your life the rest of your whole life. If that's what you want like they're like you can. I think that the US has it set up in a great way and probably a lot of other country sewer. If you WANNA be doctor you can do that with your life like you know what I mean. Yeah but It can suck some people but living in the moment I would say. Don't like get too caught up in it because like the hard part is when you're doing the parts that you don't that you know you don't want to do. Yeah you know like if you're if you WANNA do math and you have all this science to catch Kinda sucks. The thing is honestly like if I look back in my senior year even of High School. I I wanted to do different things so you never know. So that's why you gotta give everything chance I feel like yeah. 'cause you might end up being like Oh actually don't want to do this. And if you invest everything in and out one thing and then you're like oh actually don't want to do this kind of screwed. What is your is goal as a ban on grammy's is it to just. I mean you remember like the Beatles I would say I'm not GonNa District Card the fact that we have a hit because there's something magical about knowing. You made a song that connects with the world. That's so sick. I think I think for us if we were to write and produce a song enter owning it to hit that. Maybe it's because we're big Beatles fans that just respect to them of like knowing they did it on their own. Just wait for the Policy today it seems almost like harder to do on your own because there's so much more out there now. Yeah so that would be pretty crazy. I would say like just overall goal like you're talking about big picture. Picks Jack to affect the most amount of people we can in a positive way with I think is the best in whether that's getting hits like he's talking about or getting grammy's are going around the world playing stadiums one day like that would be insane but like where whatever that looks like. Just the most amount of capable of you guys already sold at Radio City Music Hall which Microsoft Theater like. That's just into solid venues there. Yeah Yeah it's crazy next.

Yeah totally living here on the entire world's new year. Yeah that's crazy say two years. It doesn't feel like you know. Yeah it definitely happened but like it just felt like all world. Yeah Yeah I could only imagine it feels like a blur between nineteen. You put out a song. A month idea was that Was it kind of a conjoined idea? I feel like the air. It was just like we had all this music that we're creating and it seemed like we we could do that. It was like I feel like that was the best way to stay in touch with our fans and stuff. They just want content all the time and we were like well. We do it because we have a lot of songs. So how how? Many sound season you wrote in twenty nine hundred eleven twelve. That's the thing I will say towards the end though I wanted to put out now really bad. Yeah I think governments. Why wait a year? Put out the album Beehive Asong a month into the year. Let's just put one out for and then you know but then as the year went on like we want to put them out more than A. That's definitely going to have. Yeah I think it was definitely like gave us the freedom to explore with different sounds and stuff though like that was really interesting because some country and didn't try two hundred the next best right when those cookies and beer beer just need some Kuchi and beer. That's the rest that's GonNa be the next album. Yeah definite most likely most likely likely not. I think it'd be snatched doesn't cut it then. We're coming out okay. I've noticed that you produce a lot of your own songs. What is that process like a producing? Because that's a whole. It's just as fun as writing. I feel like but it's bike very unique. It's a weird thing like I don't know when someone here song lyrics can like him an F. I feel like a lot of people. Don't realize production only a sound can really like grab you the lyrics cousin so it's fun to find those moments in sounds beats. You think you'd also want to produce as like another career for other artists share one hundred funds. We have like now that we're kind of like I don't know if we would use this for us but like it could go to someone that could kill it like our trap music. It'd be good for us like you guys are as you call the man band so you can give it to the only a man could give music boy bands the batons. Oh that's true you can help them become a man behind the show like we could become the man. Ben All right. I think that's such. Oh my God you guys should do reality TV show. I feel like the most entertaining running back right. He's been saying that forever. Y'All needed to be the most entertaining thing because if you live together right well not in La but for the rest of the year. Yes which is like most of the time. So when we're on tour yes always but Cormon and I lived together now in his five minutes down the street and then they live close to. I've tried skateboarding than our house. Ones five minutes by car to like put that in his case showed up like twenty minutes after his brothers and he was like brother. Skateboards and I. I would not be able to do that. Well to be fair on electric escape so those are like those electric scooters working. I didn't want so I am dislike figuring you around. They do really do their efficient there. That's how you really know you're in the future because like five years ago if someone was like yeah go ride a bird back home. Like freaked me out big about. It's going to get way crazier timing. Accuracy Corden to go off knows a lot about this. I actually recently learned that are computer. Power is doubling every two years. Yeah heard the word before something double every twenty years and then just recently so it was like this and now every two years a computer power doubles. That's curricula. No no that's that's expert exponential growth. No but that's on the graph. Yeah Yeah exponential. It's a electors going Ben Diagram. That's growing literally still have the eight plus and I don't plan on changing it because as I d I'm refusing really it's easier. Here's something said. I bought a new phone in Australia. Like two three weeks ago. Okay and I already lost it. I don't know where it is. I think it's every day so up on my phone because it's dead so now I mean there is something to be said about like being on tour and changing where you're living like every day. It's hard targets time about living out of suitcases. There's no closet like you can't choose. How much do miss a closet? All My home. I got when I go home this time. I'm just GonNa all unknown my suitcase. All Josh that's going to be so nice loves my claws. All my old stuff is like full now so I gotta figure it's going to be a day of like sorting but I'm excited to see I think that's just so exciting like a fresh start you. Is it ever hard just being together because you know you guys are friends but a stressful? It's me it's like his 'cause we're too stupid to I think with us is that we usually are always just like working day together so when we finally have the chance to just hang out together just so much fun honestly because like most frenzied if you spend all day together. You're just like board all day. We're like working. And then at the end of the day. Plus we have this like reliability factor with each other. Where like we can talk about what we do all the time but like no one really really gets it the same way that we do profession like this. Because I think it's bragging or something it's your life. Yeah that is one thing like talking to other people. Outside of the band is like I. I've been trying to just be aware that because like I automatically go into like talking about the band every exactly interview mode and I don't WanNa come off like I'm bragging but that's all my brain is like trained to do maneuver like I will always. I'm like okay. I'm not gonNA talk with pans time period and then I'll talk about it like shoes just like sorry. You're in a band actually. How did you know that it's only because of the Eggs glasses point those crazy to go home and have time to just like like relearn how to just like normal. 'cause like for the last. I mean honestly like two and a half years we've been on. We were on the road for the year. But before that we're on the road for a whole different world like it's been it's been so like everything that yeah you're being asked all day about yourself in your talking. The fans like it's just like not very normal conversation all day every day honestly being in a band hopes that helps you just like talk but even that we're together all the time so I would say something to Jack. I wouldn't say to someone I just met this eighth meeting. Someone that doesn't know you it on stuff is like so not normal right now. So that'll be nice. Honest is the concept.

I did some color and hearts and Smiley faces. Oh my goodness Julia realize this could be another career for you. Actually think we're going to start making somewhere chair with those. I think you should which I'm pretty excited about. What's what's your spirit animal. I feel like my spirit. Animal would be like a person. Do you know who Goldie. Hawn is course K. I think Goldie Hawn my spirit. How did you come from execution? Very curious I just think she's really vibrant and like really spunky and I love that about her I just I just I think Goldie Hawn is have you know. I wish okay. If you met her what would you say? That are her her me and her daughter get mistaken for each other and that. I'm pretty sure I'm related to her. And some wouldn't surprise me. I think that's so interesting. You know. She's so awesome. What would you tell your younger? Nothing I just see what happens you know. I feel like if I had advice when I was a kid. I wouldn't have made the mistakes that I've made and my path would be completely different so i. I don't think I would tell my my younger self anything. I think I just let myself learn. I think everything sort of happens for a reason but I'm sort of glad that I've learned how I've learned the way that I've learned it okay. I'm done this really cute. We've we've done it you've done it done. Let's so beautiful and Pete did it so if you want to see what it looks like. I will be posting on Instagram. So make sure you check it out and you guys can possibly win it. Look at that. How would you say house music? Changed Your Life there. Oh my gosh. No it's amazing. Music has changed my life in so many ways. I mean for me. It's it's an outlet of expression You know I've I tend to be a very non confrontational person so for me. You know writing is just as Cathartic for me now as performing is and I mean music is such a huge part of my life. I don't even know what I would do without it. Would you ever read a book? Oh I don't know see I always I always think about Like there's so many different types of writing but but book I don't know if I have the capacity to write a book because you're writing is so like well before the way that I write. I guess so like movies. I love to watch like I like watching movies sometimes more than I like watching shows because I like that. It's like everything sort of condensed into one like two hour movie and I think it's because my brain has been trained to write like a certain amount of sentences song you know it's like it's three minutes but it takes. You can take some time six hours to write and you know that three minutes has to be impactful enough to make a statement which is the same thing as a movie you know you get two hours to tell the story and try to make some sort of impactful statement So like for me. That's how I don't know I don't know. Music is amazing. It's just amazing. And it's changed everything in my life will ever. Seen Hamilton. I haven't yet okay but book I don't know how have you used coal? Probably that I would love to try. Okay look I don't have you listened to the Hamilton Soundtrack. Yes okay so you know. Brilliant it is. I mean I feel like you should totally Yunlin Memoranda. The creator of that doing though that collaboration I feel like would be incredible. I've never tempted to do musical. But that's something that I feel like in the future. I like Sarah. Yeah she did waitress. I actually saw waitress. And it was super super. Good and I've seen like deer. Evan Hansen. Which is like God best musical I've ever seen. I know and incredible no musical. I would totally do that. Was My initial conversation. Trulia from late last year and she is simply the best since then. She's had a lot going on and I wanted you to hear about it directly from her so we caught up on the phone just a couple of days ago talked what succumbing twenty twenty her dream clubs and falling in love one of the biggest things. That's changed since we talked last is that she found love Weird okay so you wrote a lot about your toxic relationships and now you're freaking love and a healthy relationship. What does that difference like? And has your songwriting changed? Its super different. It's funny because a lot of the topics that I usually right. I just can't and I'm just like who am I now grows. No but it's it's wonderful. You know you you sort of adopt your you sort of adapt yourself to your surroundings and when you're in a constant state of toxicity that you sort of where you think you're always meant to live and then you meet somebody completely changes your mind about everything and you had no idea that it could even be that lovely and it's it's such a it's such a it's such a mind fuck in a great way. I don't mean to CUSS SPLIT. Is it's such a mind fuck and a great way. I can only imagine and also you get to sing with him too and you have a song with him so with so when you perform it that just must make it so much more special it does and and makes it that much more special because I've definitely done songs with other XS in the past and this one like just feels right feels different. It's it just feels different and it's great and I hope he doesn't break up with me mineral angel. Oh thanks my love. So not only has twenty twenty just started but you also just released a song diplo heartless. I did you busy busy woman. I try I try. I mean I can only imagine. How many songs have you written so far twenty twenty? I don't even know probably about twenty twenty five. We're only one month in. I know me eye toward for several months last year and I didn't really get the chance to be home and and right and just be in my zone and now. I'm not touring this year so far and I'm home and I'm writing and I'm an I just. It feels good. It feels good to be back with all my friends and just creating again so I want to just be in the studio as much as possible while I can. Okay so twenty twenty. You're writing lot. Could there be music coming or an interview on three or a new album. Twenty three. I'm going to do an album. I don't know what I'm GonNa do but I'm definitely GONNA put out some more music. And and just you know like you try new things. Just be expensive with my creativity. One of my goals for twenty twenty is to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. Yes I love that. So what's one thing that you wanna do that you haven't done in twenty twenty that either makes you anxious or you? WanNa push yourself to do. I think I'm GonNa push myself to kind of do more genres. I think. Loom doing this country. Pop Song with Morgan and Diplo has been so cool and I love just the combining of worlds. I think it's so much fun. And you know we're in a time where we do those things we can you know push the boundaries in say what we want and and blend all kinds of different sounds and perspectives on. I think that's so fun So I think I think twenty twenty is going to be just the year of of of trying. Different things in different sounds in different genres with people that I love. Okay so to put it on the universe. Dream Club Dream Gala. I probably chance the rapper or Rosalia. Oh my goodness I. That would be incredible. I would die or both at the same time. Oh my Sammy. Holy Shit Wait. Start writing start writing. Id to manifest Syria neither manifest exactly. That's where do I made a vision board. And that's what I'm doing. Herbert Julia astronaut stress.

"sammy" Discussed on Let's Be Real with Sammy Jaye
"Hi Guys I am so excited for you to listen to this week's episode because Jillian Michaels is my guess which is still crazy to say. Her music helped me get through a very hard time with last year and switches meant a lot that she agreed to come on. This episode was actually recorded in two different sessions. The first one was in prison and then we did a follow up over the phone just a couple of days ago since she is a lot of new stuff going on in early. Hope you guys enjoy episode so happy that your hair. I'm happy to be here last time I spoke to it was during me American idol and I saw you on inner monologue heart tours and I have to say. I think that was the best concert I've ever been to. I have never cried. Laughed screamed all in the same caller. That makes me so happy. It was like after the concerts is the weirdest thing I felt like took a big breath in it was like a refreshing feels so interesting. I've never felt that before it a concert but is the most beautiful thing anyone could ever say to me. So thank you so much like. It was the most amazing energy. It was just Karaoke. Basically what I know. I'm I really am grateful. My my fans. Are you know. I like to say that like you attract like minded people. So if you're a very open vulnerable honest person you're going to attract those open vulnerable honest people and that's the that's the kind of energy that comes to my shows and that's kind of energy that I wanted my shows. I want people to feel free to have these beautiful Cathartic experiences and cry and laugh and scream and like really scream you know. Yeah like I was I loved. Oh they're up Uday. Yeah because it's also with their -Peutic for me you know like I love to help people. That's my thing you know. I'm like I'm a songwriter. I like a love to help people so when I get to see. I'm hoping people in the crowd like they're helping me too. So it's like it's just a full circle thing for me for those who don't know you've written for some of the biggest stars you've written for. Selena Gomez Justin Bieber Britney Spears. And that's just a few so I'm curious. What is it like you know writing for so many different artists that have so many different styles? How do you Connect them individually. You know. I think I think it's a personal sort of connection. And then the sonics sort of form around what we right You Know I. I've found that a majority of people all sort of have the same problems. And you know we all think the same things and you know even if you know like take heartbreak for example like it's something that everybody can talk about. The experiences may be different. But it's something that we've all experienced you know if it's not love it's you know losing a friend. It's losing a dog or something like that. Yeah so there's always something that you can connect to somebody with so it's easy to sort of crush on rest because you can you? Can you can do that with anybody. Well before you were your own artists you work for these people. Was there like a specific moment. You're like I'M GONNA be my own heart is I'm not behind the stage anymore and yeah front and center. I shouldn't I wrote issues. That was like the first time where I was like I think I want something. Actually I written a song for somebody and I was sort of supposed to be on it and I wasn't signed to a label at the time and The label that the song was attached to decided to go with another person To be really right at two I did. And and yeah you know like it wasn't something that I originally wanted. And when they told me just for political purposes they wanted someone that was on their label to be a part of the song. I got really sad and immediate realize. You're like yeah so I was in a session with a good friend of mine just and transfer and I had been in the bathroom for a while and he was like. Wow Julie's been gone for about forty five minutes. This is not like her and he knocked on the door and he and I let him in and I was crying and he's like what's going on and I was like I don't know I'm I'm just like sad and he was like well. Maybe this is your brain saying you know you want something more than you think you do. When you're just scared you're scared of it and so when I wrote issues I was like I'm never doing that again now. You're now that you've rent issue. I know it's about a break up. How long after the song did you break up with that guy? Because he did not seem like he's supported you the way you're so right we broke up. Oh dear we've got to hear the song of the news like I'm in trouble. Yes but he wasn't too upset with me because I had written it on the on a day where where like it was acceptable for him to be like okay. I deserve this. You know it was like one of those. We're GONNA PASS PASSING JULIA. Ten different all these songs. Do you regret ever like Jewish. He kept one for you. Know wish that you say that one for yourself You know there's songs that feel more special to me than others but If I'm in the studio with that person even if I love it like that's there's like I'm not how do you separate that only you know? I guess you could you Sorta don't you know? Writing for other people is my first love. That's something that I started with and there's something so incredible to me about having somebody that you just meet trust you so much to you. Know get their thoughts and feelings out on paper and put it together like a little puzzle in on the not built this beautiful relationship with somebody and I just love that so much So like for me writing for someone not someone else and you know even if I love this song it's like I know that you're GonNa love this song just as much as I do and you're GonNa do it just as much justice if I did think given when you're on your kids for adopt yeah but you know that your kid is going to a good home you know when I came up with the idea for this podcast. I was going through a really rough time. The school and I listened to exile. It just came on because I ever on talking and for some reason. I just burst into tears. What an I've never felt a connection to lyrics like I felt with your music. It's truly incredible and you know there are two songs in particular that especially live and happy. No songs were amazing. How Fun One? Yeah I'm sure some curious your song. Anxiety which features Selena Gomez. You've talked openly about you having anxiety. What was the story about creating that song in particular well when I was about nine? I'm twenty five now. I used to have panic attacks. Every panic attacks are the worst thing shows every yeah terrifying young one hundred percent and you saw them all the time literally like every day fetal position. Thought if I stopped talking I yeah I would pass out or like something would happen to me. Do feel like the word like when I've had it before it feels like like things are just like closing. It is that you feel like claustrophobic. My hands shake markets. Where do you like? It's the weirdest feeling and it's all in your mind. It's so wild and I was having them so much and you know I always try to be honest with everybody you know like about how I'm feeling and what I'm going through and I always knew I wanted to write a song about anxiety. I think it just took being in the right place with the right people and me feeling comfortable to talk about it with those people and you know I wanted it to be sort of like I didn't want it to be super heavy. You know I wanted it to be slightly comedic like yeah 'cause like I just sort of went into like laugh at myself. I am the kind of person that will like get ready. And and you know I don't want to go and then like I see all my friends out having a good time. It was like they went without me. Why you're doing that. You're so ridiculous you were invited so like I just wanted to talk about those silly things that you do when you have anxiety and it seems like a big deal in the moment when you look back catalog. This is comedic. Yeah it doesn't logically make sense okay. You're I I can using it. You know it or I can read it. It's my I just tried to be social. I make all these friends with plans and hope they call and cancelled then over. Think about things I missing. Now I'm wishing I was with them to a logical person that does not make sense at all. But the person you're like. Oh I totally get that. That been there done that. That line like it depicts it so perfectly cute. It doesn't make sense when you go out. What did you just did it? Just like come out like out of like it was so easy to those lines. Hard to figure out no it's sort of was pieced together pretty fast. I think because it's something that I deal with on a daily basis. We were just sort of talking about and all the people that I wrote it with two or like highly neurotic so I think like perfect made it so easy for us to just go back and forth with things that we do on a daily basis that were read it just like. Why do we do those things? How would you describe anxiety to someone who doesn't have it? It sort of feels like well. You know everybody experiences anxiety completely different versions but for me. It sort of feels like an earthquake. That just won't stop like and an almost like there's like a million natural disasters going on in your body and there's no cure for chess of no idea how to fix it and it's it can be so overwhelming but therapy and it change my life. Same Yeah I think it's so underrated. It's sauna rated. I think people are like afraid to go because it makes them think they're crazy. Yes something wrong with them but it's opposite because you're just wanting to better yourself what strategies that have helped you. I have learned mostly to talk myself out of things. That's hard to do. Especially when you're in your own head it's hard to do Like when I get really anxious before I go on stage or something I go okay. Why am I nervous or like why do I feel like this? It's probably because you know like X Y and Z from when I was eight and that was then and that's not now and I'm okay now you know or like if I've been doing so much and I'm just like super anxious mike why it's like. Oh okay I haven't slept bobble okay. I'm I need to let people know that I need a second to sleep. And take a breather and then. I can come about this much better. You know. So it's yeah. I've learned a lot of like little baby coping mechanisms. Yeah I feel like those. Are The little things that help you get through the day and I think of anxiety is like okay like when you have it like you always have it some degree. I think I think of it like a glass of water and the water's filled and that's just it being moderated when something that makes you anxious. It's like the water overflow out in that picture and that's a really good mental picture right. I feel like he doesn't like okay. Good Yeah do you remember the first time you ever experienced it You know I was about seventeen I had just signed my first publishing deal and I think I experienced like this immense pressure.

"sammy" Discussed on The Forward with Lance Armstrong
"I everybody. Welcome back to the Ford gassed, I'm your host, Lance Armstrong. Thanks for hanging in there with us here. The last few months. This podcast. The forward is not nearly as frequent as it used to be. It's gotten to be a little more challenging living up here in Colorado, all my gang and my studio and everything down in Austin. So little more frequent my bad. We'll we'll try to put up some more shows. We actually have a few shows coming up that are really exciting. My guest this week is the red rocker Sammy Hagar couple of things about him that full disclosure. I grew up a little dub T kid in plano, Texas and loved rock and roll medal hair. Metal.

Just be warned this one's that's a record apparently Sammy really likes that word to and and also. The level of honesty and transparency about his career in the music business.

He's just has this infectious energy that would that was amazing a one of the thing. Happy birthday to Jack Higgins yesterday for you loyal listeners.

"sammy" Discussed on The Eddie Trunk Podcast
"So that's coming out, and they released a single from it and you'll hear all about that. And other stuff Sammy has always been one of my favorite people to interview because he is unfiltered, he is honest. He lets it fly. And you gotta love people like that in this super guarded super PC world, super sanitized careful, what you say don't say that Sammy just lets it rip. He knows how to do it. He's great at it. He is a great interview. And he's always been one of my favorite people. So anyway. Sammy came on. And you're to your the conversation. We had a great conversation. And then if you here at the end of the conversation, he kind of sets me up and says all right come on. You let it go. Come on. You know, you I know you gotta hit me with something. Because I let them do all the promotion all the talk about the new record. And then all right. Got asked the big question. Because I am inundated with people asking me and talking about van Halen and what they may or may not do. Now. I think at this point in time, we all realize the ship has pretty much sailed on Sammy being van Halen. I don't think and I don't think anybody in their right mind suspects. That is going to happen. Okay. But Michael Anthony. Continues to be rumored Woolmer to be returning to van Halen. So I bring that up to Sammy as you're about to hear towards the end of the interview. And he dropped something in this interview that I was shocked when I heard that he didn't realize and think I don't think was newsworthy. Because I said to him. You know, would you be cool about well? You'll hear it all I said, would you be cool. If Michael Anthony went back to van Halen without you and. Yeah, Sammy being Sammy said, of course, he would be. And then he just basically said, but look until since they reached out to him a few months ago about possibly doing it. I haven't heard anything since neither as he. And then he just moved on like that wasn't a big thing. And I and if you here, I'm like, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. That's news. Because what Sammy Hagar did whether it was intentional or not. Was confirm as you're about to hear that. There was contact from the van Halen camp. With Michael Anthony about the potential potential. To reunite with the ban. So. That is major news and needless to say, it made major news speaking of YouTube, and all the people take my stuff and posting it minutes after it hit all over the world because this was an affirmation that there could be something cooking. With Michael Anthony and van Halen. And I believe Sammy completely when he says there's been nothing sense. Because what we know about van Halen is anything is possible and anything can change on the drop of a dime. So it's highly possible that. These guys could have changed their mind. They still don't know what they're doing. We have no idea still of any real confirmed info. But the only thing that we got out of this van Halen wise was that there was at least a consideration. And there was discussion. And there was an outreach to Michael Anthony by van Halen, according to Sammy Hagar a few months ago, it's been sitting dormant ever since. But it was there and that is significant. What it all means where it all goes what it amounts to? We don't know. But we'll find out I guess if and when they decided to do something in the meantime Sammy and Michael continue on they continue. They get this record coming out with the circle we talk about all of that with Sammy Hagar as well as the first single from the record trust fund, baby.

So like a lot of the interviews. I do there's a lot of great stuff in here..
