"North Carolina State Board of Elections approved a time extension at four polling sites due to issues one in Samson County now Extended 45 minutes because it opened late.

North Carolina does not report any results until all polls close. Meaning the earliest will. No results tonight will be 8:15
Miami Marlins, Jeter Part With Exec Michael Hill After 19 Seasons
"So I don't know what the hell the marlins did over the weekend because they seem to have their first good since what two, thousand three and we were all wondering what Michael Hill was doing still with that job early on in that regime, and now they finally have a good season and they don't bring him back now he's not technically fired his contract expired. They're not renewing it for people who don't know. Michael. Is the GM for the Miami Marlins and what are you guys billy what do we make of this? Like what is doing here where we finally have a good season and then we get rid of Michael. Hill I mean I think before the season no one would have been surprised if Michael, Hill, wasn't there at the end of the season his contract was expiring. You wasn't part of this regime. person they inherited kept. So they you know made them an offer they couldn't come to an agreement and that's it. Now, they'll bring in their own person and that'll be that they did actually make an offer that well. Let me give you some clarification on this because David. Samson. Actually talked to Mike Ryan during during the segment that they do that is always informative and he if you were listening to that actually. What happened is exactly what he said was going to happen which is the Marlins were going to make him You know I'm using this term figurative figuratively, but also literally a token offer because he's one of two black executives in the league with that kind of power it's one of the reasons that he was still there even as they gutted the entire franchise because it wouldn't have looked good and quietly during twenty twenty after a playoff season. They needed to look like he turned down the job. So David Sampson said it was an embarrassing. He predicted an embarrassingly low offer that Michael Hill couldn't accept and that would he would have to walk away from and so what they said in the press release is mutual parting of ways.

"Gleason who is Brendan Gleeson Son the guy from in Bruges that great actor yeah. You know him not he who is in love actual actual at you Chris who has the number one surprise number one hit of the holidays, which is still a very big deal over in the UK, Christmas is all around and it is it was a movie that I love I love the soundtrack I love the characters I love the romantic nature of the story I. Disbelief there's so many holes in the plot and retired Curtis did an interview about all of the holes that re they'd relate to time travel and his answer when he gave this interview that I saw was so perfect he said, yeah. But that's not the point of the movie. So, there are some movies that you watch and you, and if there are too many potholes say, wow, that's bad writing or that is just a bad job of editing. But in this case, the plot holes are totally meaningless in terms of what the rules are of time travel and what moments you can go back to because it's done in such a way that that makes me both laugh and cry and as I'm getting older I'm loving movies more and more than make me do both I like that feeling. Because I don't get it often enough and I sort of wanted more now, and so I was in the mood to watch a movie like that. If you haven't seen it, it's called the bout time and it is well, well worth your time which you know as an audience I take very seriously David thank you so much for joining us also thanks Dan for guest appearing on this week's David Samson show as part of the local hour we'll talk to you next week. All right take care. Thank you..
Pixel vs Nexus with UrAvgConsumer
"Big sensors with the Luma. Ten twenty. You will see things you never seen an entirely new. All high resolution forty, one megapixel back side illuminated sensor the forty one mega. Kind of thing that we are maybe entering another round hopefully of weird experiments and not just everybody competing on who can have the best low light performance absolutely you keeping up on like I, guess it's folding phones right thing. Immediately thinking what is it the algae wing and this is the wing. Yeah. I know looking at the pictures it looks weird and. But I'll. Great Job Oh man what do you think of that thing? A thing is wild I haven't seen it in person yet. I have so many questions in terms of how it is to actually use on a day-to-day basis just flipping opening closed is incredibly nice. It's also way thinner and lighter than you would expect from something with two screens in weird flipping hinge like this I think is the most out bird design we've seen so far. Yeah. By folding phones we get it makes sense but flipping twisty whatever yeah I know it's crazy so. We are starting to see experience because I don't want to smartphones have plateaued kind of plateaued in terms of just features an youth new things that will. Come to them. So now this experiment of adding extra screens or expanding screens, it's a, it's really taking over the other thing that was different in that area and we check with the next five is Google had this strategy where they didn't make the phones themselves. They went to like different manufacturers over here and make us a phone and they did it so that they could just make a new version of android and like show off with how Or could work whatever. But now we have this pixel strategy. How do you think that's going? I know it's it was interesting because back in the day who they have within the next five LG was G. I I remember every time a pixel came out a next came out I. I was always waiting for my favorite manufacturer to get the nod. HTC. Come back on the next us. I think I like that. has taken over I think it means that there's More control and what we're not seeing a second vice somewhere out there that looks exactly like but with different software. Yeah I don't know if people remember this the next this was always basically based on another phone that the company already made and so you knew that this was just like the Google version of whatever the other was it like the g three for the next five I, can't remember and remember. As possible ninety five G. Three. Yeah. What did he call those versions of Android I? Mean those phones always had just like a stock version of android Google play edition yes. The play this and. Came like right around that time, and so you could get the stock version a back back in the day we we thought of it as a stock version. It was technically still like it was the Google version it wasn't pure stock Android, but you could get something without touch was on it because. Touch was was sway too much back then. It was so much stuff that was like the my least favorite out say then having that option was so cool. But Digress. I do like that Google has taken it on themselves. Have they made the best choices in terms of like design, all that MOS. Absolute each person to decide but I still like it being in house you know I feel like it's it gives them more control. They choose to exercise. You know really listening to feedback in implementing that you know but I do like the strategy I feel like we've seen. Microsoft. Really good job with that with their hardware on the surface the laptop stuff. Laptops. Just seeing them. All right. We're GONNA take this in-house start making our own things and you know we've seen pretty good success. Yeah for them. So I like the idea as a matter of like execute. Well so I'd like I agree with you I like the because. Google gets to make what a definitely wants to make. Right. It's not. This, year the next. This is not so good because it. You know they they based on the wrong phone this year, right? The next six was hallway phone had all sorts of bugs. What Google makes Google's responsible for right. There's nobody else to blame, but it also means that there's nobody else to blame, right? Yeah. I love Google don't get me wrong best al I love the Pixel devices but one thing I feel like we see manufacturers kind of learn and change things up a bit. I feel like the pixels learning curve has been. Not, the BASS. Just just from the hardware perspective is just. Having been wowed by hardware in a while right. So this is my take on it as they're really conservative right now. So actually the pixel five is a perfect example of this. They went back to fingerprint sensor, but everybody else Samsung has been doing screen figure fingerprint one plus has been doing in screen fingerprint sensors. It's like it's a whole thing. Google didn't. So part of it is cost savings but part of it their explanation for. Well, the one on the back is a thousand percent reliable and it's faster and they're not wrong like I do still have a little bit of a lag sometimes even on like a super fast hot Samsung phone hitting that fingerprint sensor under the screen, but it's not exciting. Is the TIKTOK they're exactly I honestly, I'm not with you mentioning that I'm I remember liking having a fingerprint sensor in the back and it's just so how how our opinions can change over time because the way the market goes, but I really enjoyed having a fingerprint sensor the because you could just pick up your phone and the second you pick it up you're. Thinking directly go onto the sensor and your phone is unlocked pretty quick and easy experience honestly. Also weird season ticket step back. So with the next five, they came into that thrifty price point done it with the Pixel for the the next four and so it was they were a little bit cheaper everybody. Also, all phones were cheaper. But they were they were cheaper than everybody else. There wasn't a lot of competition at that price point at that quality. So the next five, one of the reasons I loved it is it was cheap and everybody else but equality. But now with the Pixel Five, there's a lot more competition this year right then they had with xs five there's the there's one plus eight out there. That's relatively cheap April can sometimes be that same price, the Samsung Twenty, F, e. Got The faster processor Scott like three cameras on it. There's an iphone eleven that's the same price and the iphone twelve is going to be who knows probably around that same price. What do you think the landscape that they're putting this mid range Pixel five in? Its competitive. It's competitive right now and feel like they went down to weight class but that way classes kinda stack to you know it's not just like bringing down the price you're not competing with Fox's anymore. There's a whole group of phones in that area now. And it's GonNa. Be a tough battle because in the phone department, there are some really big names out there like Samson. Apple. So it's it's not GonNa be any easier I direction but it would have been cooler to see things like to see those flags of specs or. Sort of flagship specs at that price point. Seeing snapdragon age sixty, five or something in there rather than the seven sixty five being able to have those things and kind of call like, Hey, boo, just slashing prices. That's that's a more interesting story you know but I mean it's still and it had like one twenty hurts you know just just those features that we expect from the flagship is if they were able to bring that down then we're. We're able to compete. That's actually like the central conflict of the pixels who pays attention to the pixel like really truly who knows what the Pixel Tech nerds right people that are like really into phones attack an android or like Oh. Yeah. I know about the Pixel I know what that means I know people know that Google makes a phone or whatever. But like the people that are really paying attention are the people that know the difference would might care about the difference between a ninety one, hundred, twenty screen so they're making a phone for the masses but the. Only people paying attention to them are people that are in attack, and that's a really hard thing for them to deal with and people in that category that that market is looking. So heavily those numbers yeah under super informed exactly and even if the numbers tell the entire story or they don't, you know exactly take the experience that audience is suber driven by those numbers like insanely. So it does make it a lot tougher because people will just look at it on paper and say, Hey, this I mean, this oneplus near over here has forty cents megapixel camera thirty megapixel. Really really tough well, lucky for everybody There are Youtube Channel Take consumer that will tell the people about the specs and about the numbers. So the understanding but also talk about the actual experience of the thing if it's any good and the average get Super Schwab, where can people find you if they wanNA look for you youtube back actually anywhere you can find me can also media just type in your average consumer and Alibaba. Well. Appreciate you coming on the PODCAST and I'll be waiting for your up five view. Sounds good to see her.

What to expect at Apple's September 15th event
"Apple is holding out on Tuesday but there won't be an IPHONE. So what are you expectancy? We're expecting to see a lot of talk about the apple. Watch in the IPAD and part of the reason for this is that we've been seeing kind of first off these devices are on an annual cycle, and this is about the time that they should be updating anyway. But also when it comes to the IPAD, there's been a lot of movement with the IPAD pro we've seen first off it has that kind of more box like design the current ipad do not have that design You know it's about time that we get rid of the fingerprint sensor although I'm not sure if that will happen and then also on the back of it, there are new sensors that apple is using for a are augmented reality, which is kind of like pokemon go right overlays computer images on the real world when you look through the screen and this light are center as it's called. Helps to map rooms. It doesn't much better job of orienting the device in space and can allow apple to do much more advanced a our stuff. So it's it's feels likely that's what we're going to see some of. The Apple Watch. It's kind of. We saw Samson come out with their own watch. So Apple Scott Respond. And I'm sure that they'll do something but it's kind of unclear. Yeah. I think the the time flies tease in the Apple Invite Clearly Telegraph that we're getting some sort of. What what are you expecting? What the Apple Watch you know I think that the betting money would be on better battery life. It's the one thing that apple's really been trying to work on and not only that. But during the worldwide developers conference in June apple announced sleep tracking for the. Apple. Watch, and it's IT works pretty well Scott dying our editor at large reviews. He has had a great time playing with and I think that one of the things we're gonNA start seeing is apple try to push even harder into that health oriented stuff right? They've done a lot of the. Workout stuff, and now they can track when I dance when I do yoga in all sorts of other stuff. So now they're they're going into that kind of quantified body stuff as
Samsungs Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G: All the details on the $2,000 foldable
"Just large galaxy. No twenty three weeks ago. Now it's time for the Godsey full to five Jeez chance to shine. That is a mouthful brought her Chang, and this is your daily charge. Joining me is he not reporter and Samson expert tooken extra me Machar, thanks for having me. So the gutsy full to five G. and that is a really really long name. I'm just GONNA. Keep that point. It got a minor tease at Samsung's event a few back but now it gets the spotlight to itself. So just before we get into all the specs in all the other details, let's let's get the important that other way how much does this thing cost? So in the US is going to cost two thousand dollars. So basically, it's twenty dollars more than last year's model. So it's a lot of money. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That does a huge amount of money. All right. Well, this is. This is a foldable and I get the full supposed to be expensive and it is Simpson's third foldable annexed assessor to last year's fold, which famously had allowed durability issues. So what's different about? Full to in what did Samsung do to make sure this phone holds up What we saw with the flip that they had this spring was that they really had addressed a lot of the issues that the first fold had. So they dealt with the problems with the hinge kind of the crease all of the things that people were complaining about they fix those We're GONNA see a lot of those improvements in the new Z. Fold to as well as. A few like updates from the flip earlier this year. So they've redesigned the hinge and it's the same as what we saw in the flip. So you can have it. You can rest the phone kind of you know at a eighty degree angle or whatever you know set it on your table. They also have these brushes inside the hinge. So in this, they had those earlier, but this is kind of the latest greatest version of those basically to kind of mixture, dust doesn't get in the device or you know whatever is in your purse when you wrote this in there. So they, they've done those sorts of things to address a lot of those issues that we saw last year got in in case God forbid something does happen phone are there any special warranty programs or anything they're doing to kind of make sure that folks peace of mind that spending two thousand dollars on something we're kind of seeing the same sort of offers that they had before were. They'll replace the off the. Screen like a one time replacement for around one fifty. So it's less than if you had to go replace the screen on your own. So that's the sort of thing to kind of try to make it. More. Realistic. Well, if the screen breaks I'm not going to have to pay two thousand dollars to get a new phone I can pay one fifty that replaced the screen and it'll be like new again. No let's about how this differs from the previous model obviously. There's a five gene, the name. So clearly will have five, the Axis. But how much five G. is we've talked about in previous episodes you there's different flavors of it. Right so how much access does this phone actually get on the five networks? On this phone basically is all of the five G. networks like this is a really or at least the major ones that we're using right now this is a very big advance over the folds in terms of a lot of things there's five G.. One of the biggest complaints about the first fold was the tiny screen on the front of the device. It wasn't really useful enough to actually use. The fold as a phone people were tending to just automatically have to open it and use kind of that bigger tablet size screen. So what they've got this time is a screen on the front that stretches across the entire front of the device and it just makes it look last year. It's more useful. So I think people will up using this more when it's closed, not just always having to open it. Yet with the five G., we have a five G. model at all last year for the fold in the US. So this time you know five jeep bigger screen. A lot of things that just make this more attractive and the other a features or bells and whistles that. Help this phone stand apart from his predecessor. Another big thing it's kind of that flex. Mod is what they call it. So that's what we saw I with the flip where you could set the device on the table and the screen will stay open in you know whatever degree you put it in. We're seeing that with this one as well. So they're saying, yeah, you can set it up for like shooting You know a video or whatever or you know or if you're watching something or whatever you can just basically has a built in that's the screen and the device itself So you know that's a big thing that I think people really like that was kind of a cool thing that came with the flip. So. That's one of the bigger changes that they kind of also made some good camera changes with this Basically, they addressed the biggest complaints that everyone had with last year's device and fix those in this one aside from the fact that it's still a two thousand dollar phone. You asked him we were on we talked about the the narrow sliver of customers who are willing to buy a thousand dollar note twenty now this is. A two thousand dollar phone I know it's foldable but. Questions about how useful that is who is Samsung actually targeting with this particular phone Samsung. Is actually targeting note owners with this phone. They found that the people who would traditionally gravitate towards the note lineup. Kind of those early adopters who want the latest greatest tech are willing to spend a lot of money to get a flashy device to get a bigger device and. They're finding that people who were buying the fold are a lot of people who have bought the note in the past or still do the notes It's the way they distinguish the flip and the full term. Each other is they see the flip is this sort of like. Cute. Phone that becomes smaller and put. You can put it in your pocket and it's more of kind of. Everyday lifestyle device and they see the folds as really kind of letting you transition from a phone to a tablet like get more done doing more with multitasking and access different APPS like Microsoft Office. You know things that you would do on a tablet but now you also have an inconvenience of the fact that is also your phone right and then you mentioned MC sophism I'm just curious in your. Demos with this device, how like whether they showed off how you use after how took advantage of this bigger screen? Well, they've kind of had this thing since the first generation of fold where it's called continuity where you could start an APP on the front and then open, it will open at work in the bigger screen and pick up where it left off the issue was there were not ten of APPs that took advantage of it I hope that we start to see more apps soon that work with it. kind of sense than. Samsung has been working more closely with Google and Microsoft and Youtube an office and things like that, and then there's that flex MoD. Also where APPs could you could maybe have you can take like a screen shot of something in an APP over here and then drag it to another APP on another part of your screen more with multitasking. So letting you have multiple APPs open at once is a big thing with the fold You know kind of more of that tablets sort of experience instead of just a phone experience. Give everything that's going on. We're still in the middle of pandemic a still dealing with the recession with millions unemployed. What do you think about Samsung unveiling a phone at this price point? It's kind of the same situation that we saw the note where people who? Would want to buy. This are probably people who were not hurt financially by what's going on right now because they're not traveling, they're not going out to dinners they're not going out to bars. Some people are probably saving money right now and they may see, hey, this is a lot flashier device from what was last year. It. Sampson's had a year to work out the kinks. Maybe this is worth investing in. The two thousand dollars is not unrealistic based on what is actually going into the device is just kind of a question of individual people have to decide if they're willing to pay two thousand dollars, but we have to remember this technology is still really early like foldable screens. This is basically just the second year first full year of seem devices with these. So it's not like these have. been around forever like like regular led displays Five G. is brand new. That is also expensive it adds cost to a device. So you know it's just kind of what you're willing to do but then you know as we've talked before, there's kind of factor of with foldable. You get these because you want people to see them. It's kind of how like iphones used to be like. The newest generations had to have some sort of little tweaks to make it. Make people know that you have the newest device, not that s off your device or whatever that you didn't buy like a two year old phone or year old bound. So it's the same sort of thing with this with you know when people are out using a foldable people, stop them ask what is that? Can I see what is and right now you really don't want anybody close enough to you to touch your phone or see it or or even be out that much to have people see it. So you know it's kind of the whole if you're in it just for the flash flashing aspect is probably not worth it but if you're in it because you want a device that transitions from phone to tablet. It would be attractive for people and thinks, lastly, I heard this phone grants some unusual perks what do you actually get with this phone? So it seems has this sort of VIP program for the folds and you get a membership with it. It's kind of unclear how this actually work works. They said there'll be some benefits like six months free of of this like premium fitness workout system like fifty dollars off like a hare service, six months of free of linked premium. Free Golf membership you know a Michelin Star meal that you can get delivered to your home It's it's a bunch of things where it's like. Okay like you know, I don't know how much people take these and the other thing is they said that these are going to be coming to people who bought the previous fold people who bought the flip. So it's not like you have to buy the new fold to take advantage of this if you really want access to whatever these things are under hoping to add more benefits We'll have to see same is actually done this for a long time with its phones. It'll have like when you buy the new galaxy whatever you get. Six months free of dropbox and you get premium bird blah blah. Blah. So it's not that unusual for them to have kind of bundled promotional partnership deals with their device but these are kind of bigger and more like real world things. You just have you know premium flip board on your phone. Clearly geared towards towards a different customer segment. Than just premium clipboard. People. Who have two thousand dollars to spend not exactly well, thanks for your time Shara. If you have any questions about the full to his up on twitter at the daily charge, you create coverage on the phone announcing dot com the charge. Roger. Chan next listening.

Unpacking Everything Samsung! (With TK Bay)
"Little bit of time that you did have with the no twenty five when we were at Arboretum. Thoughts. Did you have like how do you feel about this phone in general and then I want to ask you about the no twenty ultra then go regular. Tell me what? Would the alter the first thing? So why it my first thing when when I when I held it in in my hand, I have to say that I was surprised that it's actually physically bigger than actually bigger Dan the s twenty altered because my understanding is that the same that boasts six point nine inches they're not different in size, but the dimensions of physical dimensions on the device. They're a little bit bigger the the touch response. The the handling is pretty good once you put a case on at the hunt little thing on the back that was a little bit not. Not as much of an issue. It's a nice inker though I say. We have the same problem on the s twenty alter the ultra has as its. Literally leaning on my finger right now like this. You can hang it's like an angle there. You I seem pretty good the the SPN functionally I found that was really cool that the fact that they decided to take out the gestures although not not everything worked in the way that we think about it You know cameras seems pretty good and I, and I listened to some of the footage that was able to get back from the from the phone. The microphones are actually pretty good like for yours and me talking to the you know the talking head on the on the camera Oh has actually had and listened to those clips yet. Okay Yay no I. Was surprised on the microphone site because I I typically like I think they made a point of mentioning the microphones. Samson's always had this feature where they have microphones zoom function built into their camera where if you zoom in with the camera zooms the microphone Alongside that. So it's basically focusing the audio So initial aggressive, it actually is pretty good I I have to say. The one thing that sold me though. which was something you did. was that focus pull. The when when you did that focusing level and how fast that that camera was focusing with a one hundred and eight megapixel sensor that's I. Mean we don't have the time time flight space spacesuit that's just separate. I'm just talking just focusing issues that I think the twenty ultra had ever since the beginning they've been trying to fix it. That sold me. That's what saved me on on the idea love that and it's It's it's crazy and I think I made the I think I made the point while we were like messing around with the focus like this is like cannon level dual pixel stuff like it's really nice. It's crazy. It's crazy and is sharp and it does it's so quick and but that's the that's the level of professionalism. That you want. This is what we expect it out of the s twenty and I think it's like I use this as a daily. This is my main device that I have my own personal stuff on and I switched around my secondary line to all of my devices that I when I'm reviewing them because you know it just goes to the headache of reconfiguring banking, APPs and all of that stuff those. So at the end of the day when I saw that. Yes I can see that device becoming my main phone. This is this is something that works for me the Espen functionalities I love because of the documents signing like. I not obviously not everybody does but if you ever have to have signed contracts ever have to sign documents statements or anything like that on a phone. the ESPN just does it right? It has at Bilton its native into it. You can open it sign and send signed PDF's right away

We talk about those for just a brief minute if we want to and then finally they showed off the phone that I will sell everything in my house to buy in that will be the galaxies Z fold. To Oh. Yeah. So we'll save that for a minute. Let's let's talk. No Twenty, nine, twenty ultra. Cool start here so They announced There's two phones obviously ones Nice. The Ultra One's not so nice. The regular note twenty I'm being extra critical here because. Samsung wants to charge a thousand dollars for the regular one. The, ultras thirteen hundred. The regular one has a ten eighty p sixty hertz display in a plastic body and they want a thousand dollars for IT I. I know there's other stuff going on here. They packed all the other stuff in it, but those two things certainly do not scream. Thousand Dollars to me No. But. They did do that. So It's available for preorder. Now, Bulfon's actually we are. Now They Arrive August twentieth or twenty first somewhere in there and everyone has them. There's unlocked models. There well, I should say the ultra a while it is a huge phone and I don't think I could use the thing. It's got kind of everything again right although. The storage at one hundred, twenty, eight Gig that lower than last year's like did the note ten plus days was to fifty six yeah. So they dropped that it does quite easy. Display Hundred Twenty Hertz, which is which is sweet snapdragon need sixty, five plus five g twelve gig Ram five, twelve, top tier storage hundred, twenty Gig on the low end and yeah I think that's kind of step backwards. we got way too many cameras including one, hundred, eight megapixel big I. Laser autofocus forty, five, hundred, million power battery. I know that still large but the ultra I think that's twenty. Five thousand south slightly smaller but you do have an aspen. The spend has like super low latency and stuff, right? It's like the fanciest s date and this. What else we have stereo speakers you have ms again for Samsung pay of course Oh we don't have the super fast charging rate like the. Thirty five or whatever it was from last year like that's not back. So it's like they took away a couple of. We have like an upgraded superfast charging to dotto or something I can tell you the team last year. But like remember they were it was like a forty five watts like a forty five watts Samson charger. Discipline one either doesn't support that or they're just not maybe not including it. It's something weird like that. So shocked kind of it seems like they kind of took away a couple of things to keep the price is still thirteen hundred dollars sound like they cut any corners here no either way it's a it's a pretty crazily specked out found. It comes in the mystic bronze which Tim has everything comes in mystic bronze. There's also a black and then there's also a white version Of course, they send you the mystic bronze because they're so proud of mystic bronze I don't know.
Coronavirus Q&A: Running Outside and Petting Dogs
"Let's get to the questions. We got so many from our list. We picked a few and show them to you. So we're going to have you answer them right now and provide color commentary throughout you. Sure. All right first question? What's the deal with running? I've heard inflicting things. What's the likelihood of? It means bread of someone runs past me okay. So this question makes total sense to me because I think there were some scary kind of initial studies around this. Man where it says runners could spread it for twenty feet and they were these vectors but that was kind of mildly debunked. Yeah. It was kind of dismissed them and there are parts of it that made sense but it wasn't considered to be like actually a real world scenario that was tested and it's really hard test that so. When I think about running, of course, it depends on what space you're in, right. So outside in fresh air going to have a lower risk if you're somebody if you wearing a mask if that person's wearing a mask, all of those things kind of factor in and as best we can tell Sam as a you know a somewhat general rule. The majority of transmission happens in close indoor situations where you're spending a good bit of time together. That is why it is absolutely essential to be wearing a mask especially inside it doesn't mean that there's no risk if you're outside and there's only a brief encounter but it's reduced. Running and you pass somebody for a second. I'm not super worried about that situation now they cough and sneeze, and you just slam right into it. Say I'm that's a different scenario. Go Home, wash your face, wash your hands but the you know the experts that I'm talking to are not super worried about that situation art follow up question for you on this topic as a runner. I have heard mixed messaging about wearing a mask. When you run some folks say well, you're outside you're moving fast, just dodge even stay away from people others are like you have to have it on all the time when I've done both. But when I've tried to run with a mask on my entire five miles I ended up with the wet mask and it's like I'm waterboarding myself. Yeah absolutely I mean, of course, wearing a mask if you can is a good situation and if you're in a really really busy city and you can't get away from people if you're like constantly dodging people I actually do think it's probably a good idea. But if you're in an area where it's a little bit more open, I would say it's probably okay not to wear a mask when you're running A. Anytime, you have the choice between them a mask is going to be a safer bet but if you can get up really early before somebody's out there or go somewhere else in and it's you know like either I'm not gonNA run or I'm gonNA run without a mask. Then I think that's a decision you have to make. So you're saying we should be doing three am runs in cemeteries. Sam Stop. Phone. It in get up at three am and got it done. Get it done. Get it done. Yes. Next. Question from a listener about animals can I say hi to other people's Dogs Oh yeah, Samson is this question for Melissa is this question? This question is from Sanders. From. My Heart. And make sure they're OK. Okay. So I looked this up because I wasn't sure and the CDC has weirdly complicated guidance on this. So really some pets like dogs or cats have caught Kovic from humans, but the CDC says the risk of dogs than giving Cova to people is considered low like there's no evidence that you can get it from the for or the hair of other pets. But one of those owners that kisses your dog on the mound, I was just about to say. But this because the CDC still says, you should not interact with dogs outside their household. So I'm like man I guess the CDC is worried about people getting pet saliva in their mouths, but you shouldn't be mcing on somebody else's dog anyway Sam. If you see a dog and the dog is really really really cute. Oh my God you part of the Kids Sam Palmer's the kiss I cannot miss the kids you are. You're going to have to definitely miss the kiss for a while so but so but I will say, honestly, you know briefly a dog has come up to me and the dog park it's onerous faraway I pet it. I'll say I have pet but the. Official guidance lead those dogs alone. Sam. Understood understood.

"A starter that you can plug in the rotation and we're getting back. A dontrelle he didn't care about central else. Turmeric said. I will not manage a team. If you make straight. I will not manage this team. That is breed. You may not do this to me when we're coming into a new team and put me in front of these players and say that we're going to be good when we're not because of the trade that you're making. And we're on the phone. I said Jeff let me explain to you how this works. You don't have one God damn, say in whether or not we're making this straight now one you will take the twenty five guys. We give you and you will manage. Jeffrey was quiet. Jeffrey caused me after says David. That was too much. That was too much. We need toward to be okay. Everything's GonNa be okay. Jeffrey, you told us to make this trade. Because of the payroll, we had to cut payroll. Which I agree with you because the team is a financial disaster. You'RE GONNA. Let your manager talk to you like that and on a phone in front of with other people on the phone. Tell you that he's not going to manage those players. You should have fired him right then and there. I was livid, so I barely spoke to Torbert. We had a fight. There was a time in the clubhouse where tour board was. This is true, absolutely true. He physically went after me. What's? In the clubhouse in the clubhouse players in well, it was and the managers room coaches. It was loud enough. He screamed at me loudly enough. It was not as bad as when Bobby Valentine screamed at me, and then didn't end up getting hired after we had hired him, and he never managed to gain. Another story I'm running down episode. was unbelievable to more bore goes after me. People get in the way so blind fest gets in the way because he's there. There's no Michael Fist point. BIND FEST GETS in the way basically calms the situation down. I'm freaking out because I'm not a big guy tour. Borg is not a small guy tour. Borg son is a royd raging huge guys in the room so I have no recollection of anything, because when I'm being attacks or an I've still never punched in my life and I've never thrown a punch. Somebody like a lot of people have threatened you. Lot of people's threatened, but it's never happened. I just remember sort of going dark and I and I got myself out of there immediately, because this was not a situation, I wanted where a manager was beating up a president right? That just didn't seem like a good idea. But tour board was out of control. He literally was out of Control, so when two thousand three came along, and we were supposed to be good, even though no one we'd be good. And Jeffrey wanted us to be good and I was secretly saying you know you don't start well. After we signed Pudge, this'll be for Torbert. We'll finally be able to get rid of them, and wouldn't you know it? We started off terribly and I was fine with this. That was the end of Jeff Torrington. Never have said a word to him since incredible story David. I thought we were going to be able to get into Jack. mckeon but I didn't expect the Jeff. Tour Borg Stories to be so good. So the next episode. We'll talk about Jack mckeon I've written down. I. Know You've got into great detail. The what happened with? With Joe Girardi, maybe we can appeal a few layers away from that and get even some more good stuff and this Bobby Valentine Story Bobby Valentine. Sorry that you just tease is seems like it's something that we're gonNA WANNA listen to so next episode. Jack mckeon. Thank you for the Jeff Torbert Story. Let's get into your movie review of the Week David Samson. So I want to review A. Twenty seven minute movie, which is something we don't do often and I want to bring this episode full circle. If you don't mind I watched the Dave chapelle special. Called Eight, forty six, obviously, after the amount of time that George Floyd was kneeled on by that racist murdering officer and I was struck. It was a live event and Chapelle, said on the show. This is the first concert since grown virus started I. Don't know if that's true or false, but it seems true because I haven't seen any concerts, so Dave Chapelle got on, and he had nothing prepared. He had a notebook where it looks like he had taken some notes, but this was an emotional twenty seven minute routine. And, I didn't laugh one time. I didn't find it funny but I don't think he was trying to be funny. I actually felt for Dave Chapelle. He was smoking the whole time, and just seemed nervous, and often the audience wasn't sure very uncomfortable to laugh. Do not laugh at what points you comment and I thought Dave. Chapelle having the. Awareness to do a show like that is so important. I don't know if people are watching it. I thought it was GONNA be on Netflix's I spent ten minutes trying to find it and then I realized it was only on Youtube so I found it on Youtube. It is well worth watching, because it gives a nice sort of perspective and the one sort of nugget that he had that was interesting is. Is that he doesn't WanNa be criticized as a celebrity for not using his platform to try to effect change because his view is who wants to hear from celebrities right now and I do take a small issue with that. The bigger your platform is. I want everybody to use a platform whether it's alone your dinner table or with more people, but he's got a huge platform and he did use it. Yeah well, that's what sort of confused me by and 'cause he's going into. That I thought he could've spoke to his insecurities about it the discomfort. That's their absolutely understandable, but don't tell me about not using your platform while using your platform quite well, I should say I that that point that he was trying to make was a loss and just chalk it up to well, he's he's rushing this and he's just talking it out that that entire thing is. He has bullet points in his notebook, and he's talking things out with an audience inventing a little bit, but I thought he spoke to the discomfort and not the actual because. Because then it opens up in. This seems like a little hypocritical. Doesn't it? Right and so I? Give him overall credit I. Think it's important to watch and I got past that because I looked at the global message that he was giving and I felt I mean I. I can't say that I feel anyone else's pain like I don't have that right to say it because I. Don't I can just say that if everybody's behavior can change and and through the challenge, if we can give, give things away or give your time away or give money, way or even just talk to people about this situation and not hide from it. It's it's important and Dave Chapelle. Check it out and sounds like you did. It's twenty seven minutes is not a large investment I thought going in the whole routine was going to be eight minutes and forty six seconds. That's what I thought. Then when I saw the youtube twenty seven minutes I was trying to figure out what he was going to do for. For that whole time, but it was. It's worth your time. Good stuff David this week. Host of nothing personal make sure to check out his podcast and support him. Next week we'll get into the trader. Jack stuff is promise me that Bobby Valentine story will get a little bit of a bonus. We'll talk to you next week. David, I take, thank you..

"Mean I was I was young in new to the game, and I was walking into a situation that I only had been told about, but hadn't lived through so everything that that you talked about Ariel about the history of the expos. All was very similar and I know that my cast be thinking this that we hasn't said a word about it. The similarities between our entrance into Miami and our entrance into Montreal. Lost on the audience than on the listeners, because it's really a very similar situation with fire sales and owners who were very wealthy, who didn't want to build stadiums and then sold Mike Are you? I know you can't speak up because it sounds like you're agreeing with me, but very similar situations, so do i. wish that it would have worked in Montreal, do I wish of course, but look at the history. There are oftentimes in cities that it doesn't work out, and then those cities band together and get teams. Teams back it happens, and all I was trying to do at that time. Even a young guy was explain to the local people and the local business leaders in the influencers whether they were partners or not. Is that by not cooperating now? Baseball is not going to allow this to continue, and you're gonNA. Come back one day, and it's going to cost you even more if Stephen. Bronfman had been as emotional van as he was now about the Montreal Expos, you would never heard my name before could more. More season. David, Samson, the one that got the stadium deal the controversial stadium deal done down here. Could that David Samson after getting all that life experience save the Montreal. Expos I'd like to think yes, but the way it's happened in Montreal, and what's going on in terms of Public Financing of stadiums? They've it's been. It's been hard. It's been hard up. There and I'm hoping it happens, but it's been hard Mike again. This is why I wanted to establish so that we don't paint the picture that this is just some horrible. Horrible situation there is a greater history of baseball in Montreal than there isn't South Florida with all due respect dating back like I said to the Montreal royals, the triple, a affiliate of the Brooklyn dodgers dating back to the eighties when they were averaging two point five million fans of season so to to paint this picture that hey you know. This was a situation that we just couldn't fix. No, there's a fan base there, but you had to. You had to revive the fan base clearly because they had been stabbed in. In the back multiple times, but I hope that I've proved today that they had no intention of doing so, and that they they lied every step of the way, and and and if someone didn't engage with them a little bit, they would just take their ball. Go home, and here's the bottom line and I'm happy that you brought up Florida. Because I'm no expert on the Marlin. Situation I'm not a fan of the team it was it was by the time the Marlins won the world series I was checked out from. From baseball at that point because I was so hurt by what happened in much, but I'm happy. Brought it up and I'm happy. You admitted David that there are similarities between the two. Because here's the fame. If you guys would have left Montreal in that sweetheart, deal that you you somehow pulled off with Major League Baseball John Henry. Where you guys got to take the MARLINS major league. Baseball takes the expos. They give you this interest free loan, and then of course Henry goes to Boston. I mean one of the all-time. Con Moves in the history of sports. I mean just an amazing three way deal that you guys benefited greatly from. If you would have went to Florida and if you would have become one of the best run franchises in baseball, if Jeffrey Loria would have been you know the the Micky Arison of of the baseball scene. If you guys would have been geared yourself to that market if they would have fallen in love with you if you have not done the fire sales. If you would have actually delivered on all your promises, this conversation could happen because you could have easily started. The conversation said to me. Me Look. It didn't work out a much. Because of the scene, the market, the limited partners the politics all that stuff more, but look at what we did in Florida. Look what we did in that community. Look at what we did with that franchise. The proof is in the pudding. We know how to run a team. We know how to be honest. We know how to actually do this the right way. But what actually happened you guys screwed Florida Worse Than Montreal. You guys left them with a bigger building than the city of Montreal and so everything that has happened after the fact after Montreal only. Only strengthens my point about what you guys intended to do in Montreal. Because what you did in Florida was almost as disgraceful, if not more disgraceful, the what you did to the city of Montreal. At least we don't have a bill to pay for the stadium that you guys made everyone pay him. Then ran out of time town with your one point two billion, so everything that you did in in Florida afterwards and south Florida only backs up everything that I'm trying to say trust I. Hope that everyone who's listening to this that knows about the Marlin situation understands that they were no different in Montreal. Montreal that everything that they did that. You know about them, and and and certainly have Jeff Passan wrote a great article about you guys, and how you were the greatest cons in the history of baseball, and I agree with every single point that he made what you did in Florida, only strengthens every single point that I've tried to make in this conversation because you are as big of Khan and Montreal as you were in Florida David final word. I'm so thankful Ariel that the people in Miami and Florida have an opportunity with their children, and with their families, and their friends go to game billion F. Area I mean in terms of like you say what he did, and I have major problems with the marlins organization won the world series and they did get that stadium that keeps that team here, so they did secure the future of Marlins baseball. Happy about paint. No, no, no, no, the taxpayers know all your points are valid and Major League baseball wanted to get a certain number of mine, and they brought in an owner that simply couldn't afford it and Derek. Jeeter thought that he could win. People over with Justice charm. There are so many problems with that franchise and there's a lot wrong with..

"And it seems as though I worked well with my Kale and eventually were to find with Dan Jennings so that that's not true. I didn't want Larry fired. I didn't think it was necessary to fire him at all. Okay but then you had. You've spoken about the inevitable. Breakup between Dan Jennings and the MARLINS. It didn't go well but you guys seemed fine now. Correct correct all right. Go ahead. David Samson the question was did Jeffrey. Loria hurt Larry Bind. Fess chances at getting another job after firing so. I can't say that there's a direct causal relationship between the things that Geoffrey said about Larry and whether or not Larry would have gotten a job. I think the much bigger factor was his age and his reputation as being sort of old school which in fact he wasn't we used analytics as much as anyone. We just didn't publicize it. We didn't need to be the Oakland A.'s. And saying how could we are the red sox that we've got people or the raise we had plenty of people doing analytics but in owners meetings the way it works is owners get together and they have talks games when they go to games and they they gossip and they talk so. I guarantee that Jeffrey made it be known to many owners that. Hey you don't want Larry Fest. Because he's not going to do what you want. He's going to give you a very hard time if he disagrees with you. He's going to try to do it his way. And if you aren't involved owner this is not the type of person you want as your GM. I am sure that happened. The irony is that Jeffrey was criticized for being a meddling owner. And when you put him next to the other twenty nine owners he was right within the standard deviation of every owner I ever met. I never appreciated the criticism of Jeffrey for being overly meddling. It bothered me. We signed bad players because of it but he was not alone by any stretch. So is it out of the realm of possibility that he would say to other owners. Hey Larry got in the way of my meddling. It drove me crazy. He supposed to work for me. I'm paying millions dollars and I have to hear them complain that he doesn't want John Buck. I don't WanNa hear it when I want to do something and I'm the owner I expected. Gm to just say great and many GM's rollover to this day many GM's roll over to their owners because it's the owner Larry Stock Rolling over and he got fired because of it and the other owners would have known that. Do you feel like Larry fields that Jeffrey poison the well yes. I had to ask you if you felt that way because I was GONNA ask. I can't ask Larry gotta ask you. Maybe we can do another episode with Larry. I'm sorry that was. That seemed difficult for you. There seems to be a lot of dynamics at play right now. When you when you work with people you have to understand. Think about the dynamics again. I just ask you to look at your own situation. Are there any dynamics within the shipping container within the people with whom you work and now go ten years David Samson hosts of nothing personal? We can't thank them enough trying to turn. I asked the question to your. David asked about point. Is that you work with people. You go through a lot of stuff together in baseball. You're together all year long. Since I spoke to Jeffrey no exaggeration every day for eighteen years I spoke to our president of baseball operations are GM person. Every day of the year we would speak. We'd see each other. We traveled together. You live together. You're closer to them than family. So if you're asking me at were their issues. Yes there were issues. Yeah No. It's tough that people don't know what it now. Imagine all those dynamics but cramming them in something that's dubbed a shipping container because its size and have that play out over fifteen years and four hours of content. Obviously you're going to have some interpersonal stuff makes in there when there's Publis Liz public involved there's media and then we were there. God forbid if we had been doing this at the height of social media like now you know when we were doing it it was before social media and social media was starting. We'd argue with our players about it. But the the fishbowl is so significant in sports because of people like you. Who assume you know how to do it better? At least you don't have many people calling you and saying hey I could host that show way better than you do some other. They may not be calling but they're posting on the read it. Well See I. Should I get a part of read? It no stay away for the love of God never go to that wretched hell scape. It's it's a good resource occasionally. They they certainly care but It's it's it's torturous negatively negatively on the read. It David Samson hosts nothing personal credit to you. You come here every week and you didn't have to answer that question. You could have easily gave me some line of Bullshit and we would have moved onto the next question but you answer that question honestly put in an awkward spot an I always appreciate you coming here and being honest and real hosts that Mike. I promised Dan that the first time I ever did the show with you guys which is now probably fifteen sixteen. Seventeen years ago that I will answer any question anytime. That's the first time today. You got me a little bit in that I was in. My mind. Wasn't even there that you would think to even ask it. Because why would you even? What's funny to me is people will think that we talked off. Air About our segment and we don't we just come on and have a conversation. You have no idea what I'm going to ask unless I t's it within that episode. Yeah I I certainly believe you a hell of a lot more now. I think for the audience. There was always this tug at. We'll peel back the curtain a little bit. Dan Always knows and Dan was the driver of the content. What a great guest. David Samson was how when you have four hours and you're shouldering the burden of content people like David are really invaluable to what you're doing as the producer there'd be all these things at play because we were getting being the home of the weekly David Samson show when David was not viewed favorably in the market was not the easiest thing we got it from our fans and David while he didn't have an angle to what what he was saying this episode of since he's been let go of the marlins certainly has problems with Derek deeter. He's been public about that. I always felt like while he was honest. With time with marlins there was always some sort of angle. He wasn't gonNA give us full honesty because he was obviously working on behalf of the MARLINS. And you've given voice to how much you did play the media and I didn't. I felt like at times we were upon in that and helping view something favorably when a lot of people felt betrayed by you. But now that you're out of it. Thank God for David Samson. You're hell of a guest. Well I appreciate that and just so you know that I believe that we had a mutual using sort of society between the Lebatardshow and and me. I think that you guys used used you and that can be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Look at this David Samson's grown into an incredible friend of the local hour. I can't wait to see next week. We'll try to cover the Montreal. Expos you down for that. You have notes. Do you have your your crazy. John Does seven serial killer composite folks. I've got enough extra stories for you. Mikey that I can't believe your favorite players. Vladimir Guerrero is that he's one of my favorite because that's he's one of the most interesting players I ever had and there's some good stories about him. He's a good good man and I've seen him since he retired. I was in touch with him when he was with the angels after the Expos and after we left we fought. Just a little teaser. For next week we fought like crazy to take Vladimir Guerrero with us. When we went from Montreal to Florida we wanted to make a trade of Guerrero to the Marlins a prerequisite to doing that deal at is a hell of a teaser. From the host of nothing. Personal with David Samson David Samson one of the more memorable episodes we've done. I can't believe I got you speechless. Not many people can say. Do that. Input I'm putting that that's like something I hang up on my wall. It's incredible David Samson. Thank you so much. We'll talk to you next week pal..
April Is Podcast Experiment Month
"I talked to you about abundance yesterday and podcasting from a place of abundance one of the benefits of having an abundance mindset. Is that you get to do weird things if you're not living hand to mouth in the thing that you're doing in your business and your art in your profession you whatever. You have some bandwidth to do interesting things. And that's why I am declaring April twenty twenty as podcast experimentation month okay. It's just me that made that declaration but nonetheless. I think it's a good idea and I'm hoping other people will jump onto this idea especially those working podcasters who have have finding themselves now with different circumstances maybe more time maybe less time whatever but just different circumstances especially because we're all as I said before locked inside let's experiment. Let's try different things. You can try for example experimenting the location of how you record. I saw great post on Reddit which I will linked to here in the episode details. That showed someone setup as they were podcasting now from their garden and it's great in a captured a totally different ambience. You can't go to the park and record but you certainly might be able to go into your backyard or your garden or some other place and capture the sounds around you. Maybe you could also changed location by podcasting in a different section or room of your house. You know each room. Each area has a different tonal quality. Maybe that will enhance what you'd maybe you're podcasting from the exact wrong place in your home. There's a much better place. Maybe it's in your car which you have driven in two weeks right. As long as you're not under a shelter in place order you might be able to go take a walk and take your recording year with you. Take your phone with you find a way to get your microphone on your phone working together look. Amazon and sweetwater and BMW are still shipping equipment. So if you need to Bhai dangles red actors to do things give it a shot capturing the noises and sounds of your neighborhood again. Staying six feet away from people can make an interesting addition to your show. You can experiment on different equipment. I just mentioned calling up all their from places. But if you're like me you probably have more microphones than you know what to do with. I talk on an SM seven. Be Every time I do this show. But why wouldn't I break out that Samson? Cue To you that I bought because it was cheap. And give it a shot. Gaza mess him fifty eight. I've got some level and microphones. Heck I even have an old blue snowball which might have an interesting character. Wanted these days Maybe I'll try that or what about the other equipment that you have that you might not be completely familiar with a lot of people still like to use the. Blue Yeti microphone and fine okay but do me a favor now during April podcast experimentation month. See exactly how it works. Those three settings on the back that you think you know. Try them out. Try Different things with them. Try Different Mike placements. Maybe don't put it in the middle of the table and shouted across the room. Maybe try it differently or if you need to open up the manual. See exactly what that thing you have. That piece of equipment is designed to do and are you using it the right way. Now's a great time to experiment with that. You can also experiment with a voices on your show. Are Your kids at home? Like all too many. I have had to cut out a lot of kids. Sounds for some of the shows that we help engineer around here but maybe bringing those kids all on would be kind of fun. I have heard some cool podcasters who are trying that using what they have. Maybe now's a great time to bring on Co hosts or guests if you just do a monologue show like to. Maybe that's a way to play it with new voices on your program.
Voice Development and the Creative Process with Ilarna Nche
"Today I have the honour talking to Alana Chad who's a voice developer. Whose boiled many many different experiences for Alexa. Google and bixby. And what really impressed me about Lorna is her creativity and all the things that she's done with voice. Some really really excited to talk to her alarm. Why don't you introduce yourself? Hi everyone my name is Alana. I am twenty four years old. I am working on voice. Assistance will be free is now and I recently graduated from the University of Kent For Year pursued. Waste Industry Kind of Siebel where it was all about added Paid off and I've recently been announced Alexa champion and will serve Recently announced as bixby develop theories. Well said a very pleased with how guarding. I'm glad I took the the junk ready grades. And congratulations on being the bixby developer. The air at project voice and Being Alexa champion. That's quite an accomplishment of I have to ask you. What did you get your degree in technology degree or completely different? Yes so I was down that route of going into university in thinking what do I actually want to do and I never I? I was at the point where we have to decide what route you wanted to go down. I'd never really done any of computer science or anything up until hours around sixteen years old because they didn't ready introduce that into into schools much so it wasn't until I was sixteen. Monday introduced Him It's like a high school the high school side at. That's what I saw and I was like. Wow I wanna try it and I kind of not with the whole computer science as and I knew then I wanted to do something in that field but did I want to do it as a job. So that's why I chose. Degree weather is very broad so it. It kind of varies from Web Design to games designed to photography reading modeling like any module any cool secret drink. It was very very broad. Silos able to be like take if I liked it will hide the just will not go down that route because I actually did want to do reading log lane. I thought was really cool. What I saw the course at Casino Harry possible violence the Pixar than when I came to ours like actually this is quite hard and also quite you have to patients because you'll be making a ten second clip in the whole time. I literally I. I have the patience with that. So I did like the whole mobile application development and everything else that came with the coolest so I tied down the the programming side. That's how I kind of figured out went to be in fields. Great you know I encourage people to go explore different things and try things out right because who knows I think should reinvent yourself every end years and figure out what really excites you and go pursue it and even if that means a big change so good for you to try a bunch of things and and you landed on something you enjoy for right now and Yeah go pursue it so learn by my count you created twelve different Vicky capsules and they arrange everything. There's some educational capsules was capsules. Fitness. There's an. As Amara capsule yes in Quiz Games. Can you describe a couple of those big speak capsule in experiences? Yes with with big beat being so new and that the market is well. I I wanted to basically kind of see which type of capsule John kind of like making the Live at the mall one. It was simply something. I bake these experiences to me some cause before I related to other people by decided. Let's take an approach. Like make them for myself. I would you so I'm a big fan of they. Samah I love going to sleep to the mall and I noticed that there are no asleep. Sound experiences out that the A very big market. When look on Youtube for example a lot of people do love a law on it so different to ambient noises because of the whole experience is supposed to deliver this brain light tingle to grain and relax your brain so I wanted to make one and the best thing about putting it on bixby. Robin like Youtube is that we've topped the screen on and you're trying to get to bed the light shining in the room at least if you put it on a voice platform than kind of eliminate the whole having to have screen on and you can just listen away and go to sleep at sun baths with the small one with education. I've kind of always with me being in education for so long you kind of It's kind of a nice way to just keep shop and keep lining whether is learning a language learning maximum stuff stuff that you kind of need to keep learning with at and also fitness. I never really did many experiences and I wanted to see especially when it comes to the end of Christmas. Everyone's not fitness mentality. And you always WANNA keep so i. I've never tried one of my capsules. I made my yoga. I never done yoga before. But I forbid good. experienced Yoga positions as well as make something. I could use to win. You know I love it when people say they built something for themselves she we're talking about. Am tomorrow the Yoga Capsule Education Capsules Unit? You sound found personal benefit to these any wanted to share it and always find that when you build from the heart something you just do your much more motivated and it really really shows in the quality of what you build so great great job you touch them. This a little bit alarmed. But how did you first get involved with building for voice? What what motivated you to to build for this new medium. The main difference the main encouragement life for me to get into voice was honestly. I did that Michael sweaters on full of different modules. And I I knew that where I struggled was with visual graphic design and I love my lapse. I really did want from that. Was My design Like designing the the APP so visuals so when we Amazon dot came out. I notice that you could speak to it. And it will these skills and I didn't realize it was a third party developer. Who'd made these this experience so i. I love learning skills. I'm always up for landing anything so when I when I saw you could make one yourself. I jumped at the opportunity and I started building. It was really simple experience. It was gang could odds on why you would not match the same number of Alexia so that was by really enjoyed Also collected have to think about the design side of things so fast already love love voice. Yeah that's great so it sounds like followed your strengths so I was gonna ask you. What your first voice experience was. But you said it was the odds-on is that still out on the skill store. I had I had no idea still lacking yeah. I think we all have our first things that we built. They think the first thing ever built is a jokes scale. I don't know if you're not have to go check. But when and how did I get started developing bixby itself? Yeah so I was invited to be developer partner program and yet I was told you want to start developing on BEC- speak I had heard expe- before the the the sound on Samson Introduced to the essay the Galaxy S. nine and I was like of course anew scaled the I'd just I just love learning anytime some of that. Something I'm like. Yes for and then the Simpson team. What me on. Everything the ide- e the Bixby Studio hand it kind of was very very intimidating fast. Because I was like a new platform is different syntax using bid. I'd never hundred full but I think it made it easier once I once I kind of just in that whole Amazon Mine Alexa. Mind watching the fall but once I remember that was we did not. You did a tutorial that Webinar with the horoscopes. A yeah actually. I think it might have been atom uncharted the Horoscope to Joyal few. It was about horoscopes. But yeah coding without him. Yeah yeah it was yeah Lebanon end it was like Every helped so I always say like a lot to learn. Visually visual linings. Always our big eight for me. I I kind of documentation is good with support. The I thought visual AIDS so when there's a lot of videos stuff out there examples not the example is really helpful. It really helped kind of move my Experience with big speak

That a data breach within Samsung was linked to the number one notification and then Samson acknowledged that the data breach had occurred but in fact the one notification had nothing to do with the data breach so two separate things happens. You have misfired number one notification The breach in question affected less than one hundred fifty accounts. So that's a relief to hear that a contained data-breach Samsung simply says the number one notification was sent inadvertently and then it doesn't affect the devices in any way.

Service Animals In The Lab: Who Decides?
"If you're a scientist say a biologist or a chemist and you have to work in a lab. You're super familiar with the term p. p. e. personal protective equipment which is P P is outer garments goggles brutes and gloves. That's Joey Ramp. She works at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science Technology at the University of Illinois at her Bana on a champagne. And Yeah basically anybody who sets foot in a lab needs some form of even if you have four feet beat see. Joey has a service dog. Can you hear how little like Greg Sampson okay. He was getting up all right. Here we go Samson. A golden retriever is trained not to bark and he's a very good boy when he's in the lab With Joey he wears goggles worn military.

Oh my gosh. You can't possibly bring a service dog into this environment. It's too dangerous so sadly there are a lot of science science faculty that are reluctant to allow anyone with a disability into stem or science and When you have a service dog UGH That that makes it an even bigger problem from the moment you walk in.

China's young firefighter with alcohol with mental health and with loss in a community of sixteen thousand people. He says it surprisingly easy you to feel alone. That's why he's dedicated himself to being there for other in person and in spirit. If I wasn't doing what I'm doing right now then I wouldn't be here. I'll probably be buried in Vevey to guaranteed I would have been here in our fight instead helping other people off breath this is his story. Mason walks through the field behind his dad's two story farmhouse. where he grew? Up on the Samson Hamson cremation in Moscow chiefs all get behind his dad. Patrick Buffalo is a rancher and a hypnotherapist and Reiki master astor the reference point for most people is the past and their experiences. That's where they're stuck is in their memories. After Mason became a dad himself at fifteen he took a job with the fire. Department is a fire department. You don't know what call your on on his first day. The very first call it came in was about his cousin ferron three years later it was his cousin. Tyrel seem more. I looked lifeless. Die Total soda from their guts on my life went downhill fast for one full year. Not Something I didn't WanNa live. Noma Mason left my asquith cheese for Toronto. That's where he was when his dad called him and told him his cousin cody had died by suicide. I didn't even have time to come back and pay my last respects for cody. And it's tough especially for if people would what we're GONNA do some analysis step up and take the lead so he came home if you ask them to describe himself now. He says. Suicide side awareness advocate if our thought all my life and what. My plans are in everything that I didn't think I'd be what I'm doing.

This team of horses at his father's ranch makes frequent trips to to the cemetery. Three funerals doing within the leaf they pull rehearse with big spoked wheels and light pink curtain toppers with tassels hanging from the top of the glass window on every side.

They call it was dossier village. It's a place ace where people visit to confront their trauma. Going for a ride in a wagon with a team of horses is a very therapeutic.

Oh Patrick says his son needs to be doing this work for his own wellbeing and others so mason does have a strong villa vision for healing although he struggled in his own ways continuously. You know because he's had his own experiences ever since he was a child that he has to continue. Continue to deal with And it's no different and all with the the sixteen thousand people that live in this community and everybody's been hurt everybody's been everybody's stuck in a Rut.

"samson" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"ESPN radio all throughout the day shipping container filling in for Bannon's to God's today and we're joined by former MARLINS team team president in front of the show. David Samson David. Thank you for joining us. Hey how you doing. I thought we were not calling me that anymore. Oh she just wanted to go tavis. David Yeah sorry sparky host of nothing personal with David. Sampson joins US now. Thank you for joining us working. Hey how you guys doing good. I wanted to ask skew. Something so report came out a couple of weeks ago that Minor League Baseball might be contracting somewhere in the area of forty two teams. And I've always it's been curious as to how Minor League Baseball works in terms of affiliation with Major League clubs. Because obviously you have the same players coming up through the pipeline line through these minor league teams. So I'm assuming that the major league clubs pay for contracts and stuff but don't minor league teams also have minor league owners. That guests are in charge of promotions and stuff like that. Yeah and owning a minor league team is quite profitable because they don't have to pay for the players and this is not about contracting minor league teams there is such a bad. Pr Going on that. It's almost like the marlins. Pr People are in charge of PR situation. What's really happened is that there has to be agreement between Major League Baseball? Minor League Baseball and part of the agreement is what. MLB want is better accommodations for the minor league players. Better travel just better field conditions working conditions and better locations and if they contract team which they're not going to what they're going to do is make it so if a team is no longer affiliated with Minor League Baseball they'll they'll still have a team in that community but it'll be part of a different independently so it's not as though these communities like Bernie Sanders said in his letter to Rob Manford. It's it's not like these communities are GONNA lose baseball. That is unless the minor league owner wants to move the team himself so the teams would still exist. It just wouldn't be affiliated with Major League. Baseball's what you're saying thing he'll be affiliated with major league baseball but not with a Major League Baseball Team Independent Baseball does do pretty big business. I know that Savannah Bananas in his or a success story so these would just be part of Independent League's going forward. I guess if they choose and if they if well chosen for them it's all part of an agreement between MLB and the minor leagues and they're just beginning to negotiate. But what what what people have been hanging onto with this work contraction and then the number forty two. I guess gets Clemente's number. So everyone's all Jackie Robinson's number. I'm sorry so everyone's up in arms over the number but it's not really going to be forty team fit disappear off the face of the earth it we'll be. They'll be affiliated with a specific team but in a different league but so players remember guide. There's two hundred minor league players and every major league franchise and guess how many of them have a chance to make it to the big leagues out of two hundred. What would you say one hundred ninety to know if you have a great organization and I mean great fifty the other one hundred and fifty are man? You are people who are getting paid to be professional minor league players who have hero chance dance hero chant of sniffing the Big League Club House. I think the value and Minor League baseball though isn't that as pipeline to get the players because I mean you know a lot of these people are going to be career career minor leaguers. It's the fact that there's only really what thirty teams in Major League Baseball. And then you have states like California that has five teams Texas with to Pennsylvania with two. You have certain cities that have two teams so like having these minor league teams are the only teams at smaller towns. Get so there is value in that. I think when you're trying to grow the game of baseball because because you have a little town like you know wherever in the middle of Wyoming where you can find a major league player who may not be interested in baseball of his town didn't have a team. I mean that's really Nice James Earl Jones and I appreciate the sentiment and I'm really. I'm hearing over here. But they're in reality. If there's a player in Wyoming you can be a major leaguer. Scouts GonNa find them and bring them to a place where they develop major leaguers wards and Zach Lowe reported last week that the NBA is looking at pretty huge changes to not only the playoff structure with a seating in the conference finals. But also the introduction of a midseason. Fa Cup style tournament meant that separate from the normal game schedule. Whatever it is they decide on? What do you make of this house is GonNa fly with the NBA p. a. and is it a smart decision? I'm actually going to talk about this. Nothing personal today Later on today when I do my show because Jane Party came out publicly yesterday saying I. I don't WanNa play in the tournament in the middle of the season I want an NBA championship. So what Adam silver date here. The commissioner of basketball is. He talked about negotiations with the players. Union that are ongoing about shortening the regular season about actually increasing the number of playoff teams and lengthening the playoff off-season with a play in set of games. which is the most important picnic from all of these negotiations is at the NBA wants to copy mlb with that? Wildcard Wildcard play in game because every TV network wants to buy that from a League because People Watch Elimination Games and then the concept of the season tournament. It's trying to Redo the All Star game in trying to again get another. TV property that they can lead can sell. But if you don't have player by in you're gonNA have a problem. Talking to David Samson four MARLINS team president check out his podcast five days a week will. That's not what it's called. You can check it out five days a week. It's called nothing personal with David. Oh and he also is really into movies. He reviews movies with us every week on the local hour. David what movie or documentary reviewing today documentaries are movie. Maybe you don't need an or but here's what I did last night and it and it blew me away I. I've never done yoga. I'm a marathon runner. I love running. But there was something net flicks. They caught my attention. It was called Bickram Yogi Guru Predator so. I didn't know whether I had no idea what this was. So it turns out. There's a guy named BIC Rom who is knee. Yoga instructor of the world like he came up with twenty six opposes. And Tim breathing exercises and you go into a room where it's one hundred twenty degrees and you're wearing nothing but you're skivvies. He's wearing nothing but speedo. Oh leaving nothing to the imagination. Except he's got a little air conditioner unit on him alone he puts the microphone. Tells all these women and some men to do these anything so everything's going great. It's spreading around the world. He is rich and famous.

"Oh it's a long time coming so the only reason I kind of stuck with it is because I just recently closed on a house and needed to show that gainful employment Roy Moore longevity there and now that I have the keys in hand the processes in motion and You know the last piece of this is wanted you guys to get involved but very very quickly I do have a limited fake Andrew Luck if you have a moment for it go ahead. Happy June so I I also had another question. I was calling in. How many rings is appropriate considerate You know to to ring. If that's not going to voicemail I I felt bad staying on the line so long it just listening to it ring. Does it ring on your end or is it just black flashes. Okay Gotcha. Well Yeah so back to the job thing so yeah I am getting ready to give my notice Today will actually be my last day in the office. I work remotely tomorrow. I'm on vacation all all next week. So the Monday before Thanksgiving At our nine o'clock meeting I I wanna go ahead and let them know you know. Thanks but no thanks. I'm getting out of here and I was just wondering how would you guys quit a job. ooh I I would love to hear how billy would quit a job I mean did you have to you. Had to quit Victoria. Secret regret right. I gave my two weeks notice and I worked two weeks and I said thank you and I worked the two weeks and then I moved onto the next job. So how would you quit a job that you know. The the people are are are terrible. You're being successful but not really being set up for success. How would you get out of that thing? Well you know you you want to work in the future and people sometimes talk to pass employers. So don't you want it to end on a positive note like just because you have poor like bad thoughts about this place doesn't mean you WanNa have it on your resume that you curse out the place. Are you planning on staying in a similar field. You don't WANNA burn bridges. Business can sometimes especially if you operate in the same mm field like for instance we work in media. It can be a very incestuous business for instance. I'm terrified one day. My has will cross with a former program director Well well actually. They never will getting but either way. You WanNa try to do your best to protect some relationships because you never know who's going to be in charge when you're desperate very very true. I am staying in the same field this new opportunity that I have. I had it back in October. I've met with him several times. Gone out for drinks going for lines You know they. They didn't care about the the references from my past job You know I my my social media outlet leading. This is kind of embarrassing to say is Lincoln. I'm not on instagram. I'm not on Other than the professional shorties. Yeah so Hey that wasn't my. I beat by the way who beeped at me funding. I don't know what we can do with this call. It's probably going to be in the podcast but we're ruined for you okay. Well fantastic guys. It was it was great to chat with you Happy join and I will talk to you guys leaders hope. He's better than that. Angela compression because that was awful man. It's been it's been rough. Go of it today on the local hour. Should we just talked to David Samson for forty minutes goal today. I'm not really sure Roy. Oh I can save it. Yeah I believe that this NFL NFL trial for Colin Cabinet is a sham. Why are we doing this on a Saturday scouts owed? We're going to college. Athletes should be doing on Tuesday. They were really serious about this. It's a complete utter sham. That's just my opinion. Why is he tweeting like he was tweeting? It out like you know promoting it like. It's a good thing. If if he was skeptical of it. Why wouldn't he be like? I don't want your Santa more like a surprise but at this point he'll take he can get this is he's got his show that he just wants a chance. That's what he's been saying on social media and this is I mean as diluted a chance as it may seem now especially after for that information. It's still an opportunity right. It is accepts the main scouts for each team. That's GONNA tend or call the stadium so that means bringing underlings billings by have very low. There's job I think that's a little bit of speculation on our part we don't know exactly which each club is said. has sent out there. We're assuming that there's been travel plans set for college. But we don't know the actual particulars there. We do know that it's not no coaches head. Coaches are going to be out there because they got games to prepare teams on a bi week general managers. It seems as though this all got thrown together very quickly and there's some teams that are just sort of confused by the whole thing. I know the media's confused by the whole thing Colin doesn't seem to confuse by it he just seems eager for the opportunity already. This Colin Kaepernick now He's he's up there. I mean he hasn't played yeah. Is He thirty two only while he looks at thirty two. Okay just turned thirty so yeah I thought I thought might have been near thirty four so yeah. There's still plenty plenty of time for him so driving in today and it's raining and there's a bus stop but it's one of these bus stops that's the doesn't have any cover so it's just people bull sitting in the rain waiting for a bus and there's four different people and three of them had umbrellas and then one person is just standing bear in the rain and I drove by. I thought to myself if I was one of those three people. Are you guys sharing your umbrella. And that's granted it's someone you don't know so it's awkward if you share your umbrella. You're you're all of a sudden in this really close find space with someone you have no idea who they are. But it's just I feel like it's just common decency like I am. I the only one crazy I was driving by. I wanted to like roll down my window and be like hey let him in wanted to roll down your window not give him your umbrella. Why didn't have someone else didn't have have my umbrella? I actually bought one walking in. I'm saying that these people were jerks for not offering there. There is some guy. Just sit there in the rain. And they're just enjoying their stay. I'll all covered billy. You sharing your umbrella that spot with a stranger I mean we're also assuming that they didn't offer and he didn't say no right. I am assuming that 'cause why would he say no raining. He didn't have. It was like he had a big. I'd turned down umbrella offers before when I'm walking somewhere not that I'm just sitting somewhere but like if I'm walking walking somewhere and like my wife will be like hey get under the umbrella like Just because there was like a height difference between us. And it's like I'm going to get more wet trying to get under the umbrella rela wobbly. I'm hoping that he turns down my invitation. But I'm elise offering hope turned it down. I'm just saying like I've turned down before. Yeah at that point you need to take the umbrella to hold it for her. No I stay wedge. She takes the day walking in the in the rain except the taller person holds the umbrella person. Rela as for the most part if you're traveling short distance or an inconvenience often if it's not like pouring you're going to get less wet just walking to your car. Then you will opening the umbrella sitting down closing the umbrella. Having umbrella splash all over you. Then what do I do with his umbrella about. But Yeah I get more wet rela. Yeah I'm swift the foot so I'll sometimes just jog quickly to the car Opened up the door slide in. Close the door. You know what I mean but if I take the umbrella thing I have to open and enclose and then I got one of those upside down umbrellas that closes out when you push a button but then the water stays inside the upside down umbrella and then you move it and pours all over. It's just a whole umbrellas rela a whole thing so yeah I guess. I'd share the umbrella with the person right. I feel like we saved it..

He hurt me. I'm going to hurt him back. And I'm going to hurt him in the pocket book. This is our show with. Still guts on the ticket. We've got here. Some odds some prop bets say sportsbook is finally taking prop bets on the Oscars. We will ask David Sampson his opinion on some of those things in a moment. If you wanna talk baseball with David Samson movies, whatever etiquette seven eight six four five six four eight three seven is the telephone number. He's got he's got a movie to review with us. But I on the baseball front explained to me what's going on with Machado and Harper and collusion, that's not collusion. Well, it's not collusion. It's actually to player agents named Dan Lozano and Scott Boras, and they promised that they would get the most money for their player. So they cannot sign I so they're just if the game a chicken, and we all lose what did you do less night? Good. God is in your voice. So I actually have a speech to give today. And my voice is reflecting. The fact that I was breakfasting. I mean, you sound can you can we are Mike go ahead and get that laugh where it just it sounds like how someone who is a chronic smoker. Ends up sort of emphysema in their way to death. It sounds like Cody I mean worse than coating net. I would say it's actually has nothing to do with that..

"I think that that's a fair would say, and I'm and I'm close with them. And he by the way, one of my worst stories and baseball involves him one of the craziest stories of all time, which I'm happy to tell you, but I still speak to stand and text with them. And that's it tell us the Stanton's stand story is that he accused me of something pub in inside a clubhouse, and we had a fight. I've never been punched and I've got a mouth, and I've never been punched. And I thought that Stanton, and I we're going to actually have a physical altercation which would have been funny because he's three times my size. Well, what have been quick to it will it would've not only been it would have been very fast. Amy hitting the floor. You hitting your face with your own fist is how that wouldn't. It was brutal. He accused me of purposefully trying to put the entire team endanger by flying them on a plane that was not worthy of flight. Ever seen major league. They weren't planning was the was the plane that bad I said to him in a very loud voice in front of the rest of the team that I'm on that plane to and I value my life way, more than value yours. So the minute I stop fine on the plane who can start complaining right now. Shut up put your uniform on and try to win a damn game. Wait a second. David did did Sherman pay one point two billion dollars to be friends with Derek Jeter? Not just to be friends, but to have the ability to have it to get his cell number. I think that's what it was one to ten David Samson. Former Marlins team president with says spent the whole hour with us. What is your relationship now with Loria? You know, we don't talk all that much. He's you know, he used to be my stepfather, but he's not any longer only in that. He he's not married to my mother anymore. But we used we spoke every day for eighteen years multiple times a day. And obviously he's now moved on. And I've moved on. I just I sit home alone in a house all day doing nothing in my underwear. And he does you know, he buys Artan does stuff. So we talk so he buys her. That's what he's doing. Now. Where does he live is he para somewhere travels has got places in various places, he's got places that have places, and he's got people who have places and he's got one boy two billion dollars. What's the angriest? You saw Laurie over something Marlins related. Oh, God when I can tell you the year we won the World Series. When he demanded that we release Kevin Ohlson. He was so angry about Kevin Olson, then I remember thinking to myself who could be that angry about a guy who is so bad. Right. I mean, you should be angry about he was tasers in his front yard. No, not Scott Olsen. You're thinking. Scott Olsen talking. Isn't that a fine? Where's the sound effect for our? So that's it. It's just me saying too. That's even better production value. That's we don't even need a sound for that. It's. Evan Olson what was so angry about 'cause we had a pitch him. And he said he won't doesn't want team with Kevin Ohlson on it. Now is in two thousand three it was bad hit a twelve seven five yard in two thousand three and. Why were you pitching him because you were not available? You made that huge splash in the winter meetings. And I think a lot of the players sort of knew what they were getting into new that if things didn't go right immediately. They might be shipped off. But they were happy to get the contracts. But it seemed as Mark Burleigh was kind of upset at the deal. Was there anybody that ever got legitimately mad at you for trading them. Even though you gave them the contract that they should have known. What the deal was. Let's talk about Mark Burleigh because he's a guy who I was close to and I was very close to his wife, and and I was very honest with them. And I'm the one who called him to tell him. He was traded. And I told him that he was being traded to Toronto, which is the equivalent of baseball hell for tax reasons for passport reasons for just all sorts of now that Montreal doesn't exist because you ruined it..

"Nicotine is an addictive chemical donlevatar where can we hurt their jeeter the most right in his wallet. Listen, Dan, I'm obviously very fair. I'm telling you the way things are still God's all all the on. I love this new character, Chris Cody as confused moral conscience in the back of the room. Why do you want to hurt jeeter? He hurt me. I'm going to hurt him back and I'm going to hurt him in the pocket book. These these are show with stugatz on the ticket. I'm going to hurt him in the pocket book. That is Billy Gill. He is a young person that was said that was actually uttered by a young person. It's a bit emotional at the time. I think that's what happened. So David Samson is with us STAN Van Gundy. I think our goal for the show needs to be the send a STAN Van Gundy the lyrics to despot bussey though and see how many of them he is willing to sing for us at some point, I think getting STAN Van Gundy sing a song in Spanish is the proper use of STAN Van Gundy in this medium. So let's go ahead and put that to him now and see how much of that tax. Stands at? Oh, man. What do you think you're going to get a scam? Why is he in the radio after. Drive forty five minutes because he can't get the machine in his house to work. Yes, you have to send STAN. You do not tax him. You cannot ask them to open a machine. To anything, just send him a fax, some to a number near him. And so. We'll bring him the lyrics despot see, we'll get back to STAN Van Gundy in a second, STAN. If you want to get in on this debt, David, Samson conversation feel free. I know how much you love baseball. If not, Samson, Samson is with us now on seven ninety the ticket. What what? What is the movie? What is the movie that you're reviewing for us today? Samson, I'm reviewing and movie called eighth grade written and directed by Bo Burnham with Josh Hamilton, the dad, and how see Fisher as as the daughter is eight. The truest movie about middle school angst that I've ever seen. It was uncomfortable. It was upsetting. It was real it you, you think to yourself? What was it like when you were in middle school, then you think yourself thank God. You're not middle school, and then you think to yourself thank God. I don't have kids who are middle school all the while, realizing that it's not a Hollywood movie, and I encourage every parent and kid to see. It so you can say to yourself, you know what? I'm not that different and I wasn't that bad at being a parent or a child. Where were your connection points? Where were your personal connection point? The desire to fit in in different areas? Knowing that I was putting a square peg into a round hole, the feeling that I was being judged constantly and wanting to not let anyone misjudge me or mischaracterize me. And then as a parents. I mean, it's just disaster from eighty z. When your parenting a middle schooler, you just don't know what to say. You don't say the right thing and Josh Hamilton acted perfectly where he was the father of single father of of this daughter, and you just never knew what to say. And it was always misinterpreted and there's a lot of door slamming and a lot of electronic using and that's what real life is now stand. You're very close to your daughter, you you, you're very close to your family. Like, do you do. Relate to what he's talking to the angst of young kids with their parents. Yeah, I do and I saw it with my daughter who's now twenty one, and I agree with him. I mean, you sit and watch it and you went through it with your own kids and you went through it when you were in middle school? I, I agree with David. I thought it was really a good movie, but one that will make you a little uncomfortable. I'm wondering if the two of you have disa- disagreement as it relates to the analysis of Clayton Kershaw as people who love baseball, it is a bit confusing that this man who represents one of the strongest pitchers of our lifetime would be this much worse in the postseason Sampson..

"Theology is what is so much the same way that when Joseph had his dream in the new fifty two, they write con. That there's in in the long list of things that are kosher in that are not coaching. There's one kind of animal that is not kosher, and when they were translating it into English, they're like, we don't know what this thing is. It's called a rabbit to say rabbits. I wish I remember the name of that animal in anyway. We've gotten a minute into this movie. So let's so Samson kale of they're stealing this corn that may not be historically accurate. Otherwise, the movie is very historically accurate all the time. I mean, it's about a super strong hero, so we know it's accurate, but Samson Kayla, they lead the Philistines on a merry chase through kind of ancient village set. They don't look like brothers, right? They're not supposed to look like they're twin brothers, right? I mean, they're not twins, but they look neither. I mean, they're, they look more like twins than Danny devito Arnold Schwarzenegger. In the movie of the same name, Elliott. You use that argument too often. I think it's unfair. Not only do they not look like brothers in that one of them is blonde, fair skinned and very wispy. And the other one is looks essentially Samoan. Sure, but they don't even look neither in the looks Jewish and I don't like. Yup, it will guys who went to the same wig shop. That's that's what they look like. They didn't even get the same color wig. It bothered me so much that the no one in this movie looks particularly semitic and they don't have to look like Woody Allen like we don't need to be like Mike Jewish. They don't even have that would be hilarious offense. Everybody's got out quarterly blazer with the patches of the elbow foot. Imagine they don't have to be college professors. Imagine how much more of a miracle it is. If Samson is super strong, but he's like a little nerdy guy like that's a miracle, a huge guy with muscles beating up a bunch of American scene. I hope that my God given strength close out, I don't know how many more people I can massacre with this jawbone. That's my character. Woody Samson. Anyway, it's a, it's a problematic impression to do these days. I'm just saying they could've gotten guys who looked more like they were. If feels like, man, you're already gonna steal the Samson stories from us, and then you're gonna cast other guy in this way. Anyway, that's fun. There they go to this village. They're running around Samson's a real flirty, charismatic rogue type. He's quick with a joke quick with a punch AMI's all he's like his face is like all eyebrows leg brow ridge in dimples. Like he's always smiling, this weird smile. Now he looks like a caveman. Like, let's let's not mince words here. I was trying to be nice. Looked great. Looks like it was carved out of granite which could be taken either way, but Danes that you are accusing him of looking like a throwback, primitive human, I would say, looks like a caveman. If you consider his dimples to be too beautiful caves. All right. If he looked like a caveman, that would be better because you know it when people a lot of people lived back then in Taves because this is ancient times he entered into really show you that he's, he's not just, you know, he's not just punches, but he's also a charmer every time they cut to him. He's in the middle of laughing at something that you didn't hear. And like it's like somewhat. He had never laughed before, but so it'd played him a tape of somebody math. I got this this once or twice Nigon. Once in a while, you'll hear the end of what the brother was saying. There's one the brothers like, you know, you wish that was true brother, a huff like you, like, what were they talking? He's also eye for the ladies and you know this because every time anything that could be a woman is on screen, he just looks at it. There's a scene later on. He's watching to women get water from well leering at them and they are so totally covered up..
