have been talking about yesterday we went to bed late party in a one south no swimming that shirt did not come back oh i would look at the antics oh there's one in nearby none of that shit going on the floor was ran as a young man that it was a highly myself i said it should be dues around me great aiming for attention man shit i would i would even flexing their muscles were in a new thinking about march to like michael seem eagles these besser did not come back just sitting around him would know sure gonna call you out it was it was a it was like three others and that one was the craziest yeah i'd had like a kind of a humorous encounter with him earlier in the in the evening well what all was about a grandmother my grandmother how what happened man i come by the little bar section earlier just to see what alcohol they had even like were you looking for me i'm not looking for you yeah when i well this is the bar area and i'm like yeah no juniors seems talk to somebody tell them all about legion john cena convincing the watch legion but then i went back over there like miami get me a drink and it was one of those things where like if you guys talking in one is in the middle of telling me other one joke even know like like they they don't like racist you just told the judge they think it's funny and if somebody black walks up yeah right in the middle of quiet but they know they can't completely stop talking 'cause that's even more suspicious so he's very talkative do dissolves walk it up and then my grandmother she calls his this guy a spirit chucker and it was like right when i walked up he kinda glanced over saw me in his his his his levels just kind of drop to stop it could just suddenly stopped the story and others just just acting back there just pretending like i'm like i wouldn't listen i did he came to explain himself later did me i guess i know but that's when you talk to him then he was talking about his sister and all that and i was like that's not broken saying like well you're grandmother right like you're like yeah i'm standing right next to you telling his oh so yes i did over say they're standing there yeah man oh yeah that's it yeah that's that's that must be firm episode earlier it was funny too because that dude he's wanna do the just wanna be the center of attention more yeah the leave me a fucking moment but he came out ask me some racist i know i know situations win when you're black you go to functions where most people are just kind of mind your business somebody comes over the go get your opinion now do you think this is racist he like you wanna ask any of them yeah gotta be me her chances are if you ask me probably is let's see what you got an nice super nice about it well there's one that one time when i looked at exhaust curious like how you ashley right this is not racist i was like wow i was ready to i was ready you'll even get a photo like man you got that right the ship a nice action pretty interesting i'm like wait ago it was it was funny is i could see some people getting sensitive about what it was you tell me if you think this is a racist okay a so he showed a two things in once it aerial any showed the little mermaid yeah a as we know from animated films and then and then at the bottom is it could easily this is a joke about fun at the bottom aerial black in in had a black version of the little mermaid but the the black version with gorgeous yeah you know there was nothing like making fun of it you know i was like little bit there but yeah you know this this whole little mermaid controversy i'm so done with it because even when you're talking i'm gonna go let me see that when i heard you say areas like i i yeah i don't want it even have anything to the movie yeah it was just like no okay no it's just a hot looking aerial she will black not just like man i really don't know what to say this racist about this i mean i'm sure they can be spun now way like maybe even you just put net modifier on there are other label like black but i don't know man like this'll i've seen so many rate to so many real raise their hands out there yeah that's just like you know i said a lot of things at a proper way more offensive gets to a point where a good sense of humor about things is just okay man yeah what if i get worked up by this i i'm gonna die the only thing i want to say like once you put them on facebook you know but he was already talking about kentucky mowing his yeah you is one comedian and plus i think he was also yeah i think he was on that i think he's on molly mushrooms emotional that what he's damn he was dancing he so he would you know you you bringing the gay club into the labor is like everybody would show yeah he had also been some tight shorts no shirt no you know in in put on the course of what what people consider the game you get some users just and he went from being boxer before even put it over there doing this and do it as right in your face in modern just looking at me going help why why is he doing now this one is the one that's fucked up no people who was not this one just in case you're wondering about that aerial black joke no it was area who is a black aerial that was really a in this of course this is fucked up right here man no it was not this one this one has aerial like like here aerial aerial bold she spent a early aretha you reach a gay aerial area italic mustache area black is a fat black woman in this one i guess another game one right there that's that's fucked up man so no it was it was not

brothers they would ask me interviews and everything they say so of you guys have planned for a more season they're like no we think we've told the story that we need to netflix bullshit you better you better think of the first adventures oh we don't care how you do it where you're doing what you do it as long as you get back on the air the season to season to except me one episode with a big hit in that list and what we now have as season three a i think no matter what happens after stopped together we're going to you we're going to we're going to have people like why that's a shitty town there's nothing why did you start with new york is something you know that's where eleven lives that's why lebron lives and then that's when they opened up the portal yeah so i man that bitch right there yeah ruining everything for us yeah we ain't gonna stop to be two weeks two weeks you'll oh you country backwards kobe yes she did have one man that'd be a joke but no you know yo you had the start your head start getting crushes in in your head start making start living childhood trying to make a normal in everything that bit say normal if she most fans went up my magical back let us do and we will when people said no so these creatures like all right if they look at things fire season will get this in the war with the season three right now is that people think this season three they know it's been pretty favorable you know people have been for the most part saying that it's probably not be best season season is up there as being a one of the best seasons out of out of three in so you've heard a lot of people with their reviews that they're so i don't wanna just give a straight review i will we will everybody's seen it over him mr crispy juicy hurting of course the great martin last at least quite cold but i think in addition to giving a review in the middle of that i'm gonna give you five reasons and then i could think of you guys gonna add more will give you five reasons why believe this series whether we feel favorable about it or not grilling talking to you siri here when i want i think she hasn't opinion on what you've done throughout the fucking guy but the hat on the hey i'm gonna ask you what do you think about it is clear and sunny and nice with a chance of storms coming but a well maybe you whether we feel fable favorable about this and not let me give you five reasons why they should stop this why they need going anymore in maybe one or two reasons why they should keep going in go ahead in a guinness has no bearing on whether we think is good in that you'll find out what the review but let me go ahead and start with number one right here but there's a i think thank that would stranger things i think the concept starting to wear kind of been known the beginning this was a clever blending of the style stabs much to a stephen king steven spielberg and it was the right amount of team is spielberg you know just the he's a better alpha spill bird with just the kiss up stephen king well it wasn't enough to to make me think dang what one of them never worked together together all those are you know what i have and they still really haven't done yeah because they i mean they they both have a lot in common you no one is more extreme har yeah they others more fantasy but they both have elements of each other in these things here a you know because with a stranger things stranger things is really kind of for me kind of a combination of e t in the missed oh yeah you know a a being centering on kids science fiction in some hard this thrown thrown in there it's a great concept man i mean it's kind of like imagine imagine like the concept the bt you know imagine trying a healthy tea but along the way you gotta fight the government against the munsters right right it's it's but also their stand by me that's a that's a part of this and the goonies yeah yeah all that man you know i mean there's so much about childhood that stephen king does in it but it also makes it hard a you know we have spielberg who takes a lot of fantasy and mix it in with childhood in a i thought that was great man now the concept is starting to feel a little bit stretched me 'em you know whether it's you know they're still got us a good mix spill bird in kenyan here but instead of this time filling more like the missed eighty remote viti at this point because eleven a little bit grown up now now she's part of the game you know she's a teenager just like everybody buddy else removed that it replaced d t with the goonies saying i love my mind data sean in the reason why bring up goonies is because now you still have har in fantasy mixed inside fine but the whole thing leans more comedy this time of the season three of a you know 'cause we were talking about that i think that's the reason you see like a like goonies r e t they all had an ending you know self contained story with a stranger things affected their continuing on with it they start to run out of ideas of these characters and so it's like okay well this character certainly is kind of done what can we do with them let's put him in zany situations let's let's focus on the comedy with them and i think that's where it starts to wear released at least for me what would you care to what you said about i'd say never hopper hop hopper the kids and a stephen in dustin i mean all of these situations are comedy man if you look at no no they they they definitely are but i phil i feel like they run out of ideas with m a c i n again i'm not saying when opposite please please you know put out there 'cause i i a i kinda you know i i think that with with them having you know with the idea of running thin and now you know ceremonies characters have so much to do before and now they're starting to feel like a okay what do we do with them up assize have them just start in the books on their relationships at this at this point i think is the relationships with these characters is you know especially with kids you know the kids louder a the biggest smart after the never the tone is not only comedic but there's the tone is actually something that you know has a terrific things in there there's a there's a lot goofy stuff going on is to 'em which might have been par for the course with this considering that you know at one time they had an actual gooney in here on aston so you know a i and i don't mind i don't i don't mind the show taking more of a comedic term i think they're a few places where it actually benefits from that a very much from a a having some laughs at some comedy in here i think that a width most of it though a you know it it it comes at the expense of the character's they had years of careful in really rich development a in a development within their relationships their relationships now a these characters arguing a lot you know when i look at the you know when i look at what they're doing now with these characters you know i think that it is there a lot of them and just loud for you know yellen smart as one line is a at each other more then we had the setup in which was so amazing the first season but these characters you know a lot of drama winona ryder was all you know you felt her cause you have not heard she had a missing kid you know a david harbour a he you know he was suffering the loss of a of a child you know is it was a you know that there's a lot going on and i think the reason why that's happening for me is because i think you guys charming after this because it's kind of relates to this brings me to the second reason why i think that you know we're starting to get to where we should in this series and his wife in his kind of you know wearing thin a it does feel like a case of sequel itis at this point you know a you know where before as i said you had these characters that were so great now starting to feel like a case of well we need something to do the brand the gang back together more than we had a more than we had before i mean they still have a reason the comeback bacon always mind this world and it's missing this a mysterious creature this dimension for material but i don't think they whereas ready for it as they were the first season 'em everything you're saying i felt that to a degree about the second season i've done a little bit about the second season of the more here but i i feel much less here i felt this when there's a lot more going on because the kids are older they're moving their i mean the the whole show is about about change about yeah we saw these kids before they were cute little aplenty indeed but now okay they're they're they're they're pairing off they they got girlfriends it's a whole thing of like hey i'm gonna play like they used to it's like kind of growing up and things and moving past that we still try to hold onto what we had but that's just not the way it's gonna work out a in an i three seasons of well known or a crowd of a will and david harbour grieving over his daughter that that would have been to i don't want that you know and that's not what i said i it just because you that that's an example of this is kind of character development that worked in the granting now i don't think they have a whole lot to do what you're gonna say you know kind of what you're going with martin i agree i think the the the the season this this is the best even for the kids at of for their storyline and it's good for them but whereas with winona ryder or david harbour i think it's their weakest name because their stories kind of wrapped up i feel like especially david harbour you know i mean he he he regained at auburn eleven and i think that was struck a season what you saw the relation between they're barely together in this and when they are together it's super ridiculous in so over exaggerate did it almost feels really inauthentic i mean he's kind of like a clown in this and even when they tried it into the dramatic later a dramatic moment later on with him like but but you don't really building up properly i felt like it's like there's nothing there's nothing wrong with ending a character storyline and just having the it completely in the back were not involved like everyone i think the duffer brothers feel the need to have everyone back and it's like it's not necessary just characters you feel like you can tell a story line without they did a good job they've always done a good job of addressing criticisms of of of of kickers reason previous seasons like with 'em oh god a sack steve steve like season one he barely button season two find a great element which he's the babysitter is an agreement on on on the kids man you know the kids for that reason the kids can't afford to be you know it's a little more communication funny in loud and crass and whatnot because and as you said do you agree with that completely that you know you're getting to the point where they are growing up now and they all start in a separate so i think they have a little bit more to do the knee adults but i think i'm i'm at a crossroads with the with some of the characters this here because you brought up david harbour man i think there's i think as far as i think david harbour place chief hopper great i still i still liked the character but i don't think he has enough to do here to the point now he's just reduced to like a a the the the yelling dead in a sitcom yeah you know he he monday i mean that's the first time you see it's alba's he's a rocket his dad bought looking depressive okay but but that's only a country as these the country aspirin flintstone yeah you know you're yelling you still you still get those scenes on him like being the share those previous seasons especially when he's interacting with a the mayor 'em in those are great but it's too far in between from me but you know what i i tell you i i'd even men unlike i'm not even trying to criticize it that much and i understand i don't like the character as much as i did before just don't think he's developed as much but i i still like the character to certain extent because i get it now that he's he's a he he is eight dead yeah you know i was gonna say something he's not prepared for me he had a dog before but shooting that'll that'll that's a lot of district for everybody well not everybody but for life character is reality starting a crash in on yeah you know in reality to the point where david harbour he wants he's so much dad he ain't afraid that dead body said he ain't never lego no eagles held way we've done like all right i'm going subway oh yeah there's nobody even knows what he just hailed yeah man he's a hard worker stomach oteibi that doesn't mean it's all about it but it it it it adds to his care it does i love talking about a beer belly now that they have a whole brewery i'm like man i i love the character like like like except the net and lynn using that because the other actors using it because he has a dead now and he's like putting it out there with complete dad bod he want he relatives in that role the point the he physically takes it a it's it's it's a part of something 'cause i i've been watching this with my daughter and as i stopped the show and it's like okay all the cw shows you notice the difference between these and she's like well this is much better yeah absolutely but another thing is that you look at the show and there's nobody on the show who looks like a model they all look like real people you know and that's a big thing going on oh yeah no no no they the i mean even the prettiest people i mean i dunno musical in the eighties now look outdated but yeah you know they're not trying too hard with that especially here soon i thought so you lay on the creature you say i'm going you know what i like about this what i like about a about a a chief hopper man she poppy is in david harbour i mean he went from you know a like a character that nobody knew threatened right now superstar overnight from the show from this show everybody because they like this man so much everybody wants to make him sexy johnny stop this shit they got his ass in fort night studying him alright on over that is that's jon hamm george clooney they made a action figure opium permits mcfarland toys oh man that is not that is not here man don't know you don't we don't want sex hoppy we want that stomach give me that barely you know that's the that's the pill the character you try the makeup sex i bet that the only the only looked like that's that's what they're rick grimes talking to you sit right here there's gotta be a chuck norris this that that is not a man 'em but i tell you a lifetime i liked his comedy i like the fact that he was a he was a dead but what annoy me was it that it didn't go far enough and again so we have almost no not not arguing anybody on this at all because because i think what it was is that you know once you get past reintroducing him as a you know what the position using now he goes through the i mean it's it's almost like stick that they're going to handle known a ride at the whole time is out of a kind of a mediocre romantic comedy would they just arguing with each other arguing with each other to somebody has to point out the obvious which we already know and not only to be told this right it better don't tell me like oh this is getting ridiculous between you guys want you just have sex this this this lame back and forth sexual tension what you have going on like yeah exactly and it just because you point out doesn't mean that it makes any better but they you have you have like at most are being generous six episodes where they keep that up and i'm just like okay i i between you two i feel like i need more that's what that's what i was talking about the comedy 'cause that that's where the comedy came in okay but that 'em although i love that he went off on mike you told me and i know you love that mike out of the woods is fucking kill you love the he's not don't who told mikey he's got a look i'm gonna tell you some i don't blame them because he kept the door open and make it eleven they would they would start fucking ahah you got go and get the water hose and he seemed like he told me he's like i told you keep the door open in indian did but you don't have to put on the chauffeur me through that he was all over he's like i know what you are doing to demand the woods and told him you know what we try to talk to him man it might not like oh no no you know what my asshole or something like and i was like oh here we go these white kids talking these parents again he drove in the dark and all the shit that creature ain't got no no fucking fucking kill you put that in the swamp no nobody would find yours and i'm i'm achievable yeah so i'll put you in a portal nobody ever fuck when you hear i love that like good one i don't talk to like adult hilo keithly some crazy people like eighty degrees with a heat even say my body just like i i read my grandmother sick i love that man i mean but i like i like him but i just you know you know but i but i get like a lot of people like hey i'm i i hear what you're saying it didn't work for you in i i suppose pose is is much as i made the complaints about spiderman far from home here a i i enjoyed it it was fun yes like you know this this series is always been about drama comedy in her in the comedy stuff i you know i like these characters it's back and forth in something kind of light before we move into stuffed soccer yeah when it gets darker against ridi no it does it does when thinking about stuff through the last two or three episode aesthetically this is the dark and season yeah i think yeah what they do with a creature does but when i say everyone arguing that seems to be there the writing all these characters that's what their chemistry is to argue i noticed that was a pattern between everybody mike eleven argue a lucas max arguing all the time throughout the series a with jonathan in the nancy nancy arguing all these characters are arguing and i'm like it just seems like you'd have that's why i said connection before between these characters they had a reason to like be stressed the in a reason to be angry a reason to you know to to to interact with each other now just like well all romantic triangles in we just have to argue about that that bothered me man a you know i thought that was kinda weak writing 'em but but again i as i said the kids the changing so i get for the kid i loved i gave a little more leeway except when i got them erica man just after black what flavor ice cream cheese and says you a i that she got on my nerves because she was the now i could say i say she will be you know the sassy black kid but i'll even take blackout us used just the sassy kid that hurt her whole character was hey she talks expects to she talks back to adults with attitude angie customers another scale on this but i think it's fairly close to the ballroom maybe fifty theaters were like five times it right you're just gonna walk in there like it's kind of disneyland or something to you do look do you talking to me i'm sorry who were you erica's sinclair who are you murray feldman listen man i'm not gonna say you had a doozy but i've been down in that shit home for twenty four and with all due respect you do what this man tells you you're gonna back i'm sorry why is this four year old speaking to me i'm saying you bob fast ball i should say for because that is one of those like hey how do you get a deal like nobody's gonna know 'cause everybody who's writing about the cutting me set up now you know the the actress a like a in here on think nick thing is a prior ferguson is the actress and i do like i like her as an actress but i thought that that was a really we character you know everybody's gonna respond her because oh she's tennis use bad words and see sassy black she was in the previous seasons but you is used very sparingly for those types of moments where like maybe like a handful full three it most each season here it's like she just another secondary character and that that that is one emotion and so he talks everyone whether it'd be steve or dustin or robyn or murray is this like that's it's really frustrating it's still against comedy subjective but that that definitely did not work for me i thought this this character is just caught unnecessary tension cursing seem natural no no no ball fast it like effort delivery was always that yeah yeah that's kind of forced right then even a well you'll say some i'm sorry go ahead oh i i've found it'd be funny and then they they found a moment for her way with her gut let down where you got the scene a little bit of the real her yeah i know i'm in the minority on this i mean what a lot of stuff where it was goofy or comedic at first and then it would later come to a scene scene where it's like okay this is really just set up for this latest yeah even billy billy was they gave his wife i disagree with yeah billy billy i thought they gave him some do in the beginning i thought believe a who's active montgomery what's the attacker montgomery from a power rangers yeah vigil this thing against some other things man a gay porn edging i hear so much about the longer he went on i was like wait i know a guy just like not you you don't get a no you know what i'll i'll i i hate his character and last season actually the intro of his character but this i liked it because i'm like man you know what and he's still a young guy he's angry all the time he does angry but but he he relax relax when he had all these horny brides on the side of the audio women over here loss after the youngest action like the intro man i'm oh yeah i'm like man what is it the bunch of horny married forty some women they play off the phoebe chasing from fat towns ever ridgemont high even knows that's a great point yeah same music and he won't you pull back a little bit of what is working its way down a guy who that's the showtime coach is the company that works no running on my watch i gotta warn again you're banned for life might be back look at him like let's just say it's eleven they get a hearing billy yeah man new do he's a local child molesters just thinking like that scene and like the scene if you if you see any cause a what follows acronyms actually kinda kinda funny conical a set of ford is great but i you know i thought they want the bill it became like you know you see it from the trailer once it became the vessel for this creature i just thought he was just kinda spelled enough conquer the world type dialogue as you're in the trailer i will take you and your mom and dad you know like i you know i don't there's much to him after the i disagree 'cause we do see those moments when he's struggling with the inside of him and he's breaking down we see him where he's not just this hotshot guy you know you know bowling his sister's friends and you see him just like a fetal position later on just begging for let me know those things coming in someone that crutcher does take him over i like how cold is planning a is like almost like a serial killer and i thought in much the same way that steve treats all these two were billy it was just like a kind of a throwaway cares like what's the point of this they did a great they they addressed the criticism did a great thing with him here i thought he was the one of the strongest elements of the c which comes in at a certain point from me but as a point that yeah like what a great it's great but it's but it's a great point i think it's a perfect combination to his story yeah in the season in yeah i i love everything and they did with him i they may be turnaround how i felt about this character yep yep they must've i think the big bringing up steve moore the big except the exception for me is steve steven dust man joe carrying get motto arouse owned the character a i think the guy the place de joe carey is just i think he's great yeah a real like everything with him i thought they were those to work well together i thought that's where the comedy works the best 'cause they just have really great chemistry together they've spread from the second season they just developed his friendship and it was good to see that even if they got older it stuck around he well they have the they have to me out of everybody here's here's what i'm talking about out of everybody's been arguing going back and forth now have a little material stephen duston ashley arc and yeah you know stephen dustin man a you know because it's funny you had the guy that was going you had the two characters that we had the least income and you had the school bully little snack little kids and they end up being the best of friends man every time they will screen together i love them yeah i'm waiting for a look that's my my reason keep going get season five with justin turns eighteen they gave which gave each other in southern mexico i'm gonna mexico but what i'm talking about them together i will be together together without being like nothing happened hard you and me oh man what what's they're gonna go with the hardy boys type saying little brother older brother they should be and i'm like okay i got a guy like and equal no i want them to go all the way man no but but it's not steve he's gone from being and i think the this is the character the they didn't know where he's gonna go and they wrote him this is a character that they actually a figure out the best in without knowing what the story is gonna go these guys gonna go stevens one would start out as a typical bully they were smart enough to actually change that but him in the season to end in the first season yeah right tortilla yeah right towards the end and then a now like i said we got a guy who's gone from being a bully to this being the the real comedy of the show yeah but goofball and yeah you know the the the you know the the the klutzy guy but doofus doofus who's hanging out with the who who's best friend is the is the dirtiest out all every season's been adventure with babysitting but it's in his great man they did a spin off i would love to see the the dustin in in stephen benches man it just a great combination just one episode it's not about three i'd love it mini series many many series i would love if they had the go and do something on their own i love love seeing them together man a an even say that steve chemistry with but i like robyn me to oh yeah yeah she's great rob in their debt and what they have a scene together which i can't even show you a clip of but they seem together which i think is wonderful wonderful in that was played out amazingly a in the girl the plays robbing she's a my hawk she's really good she's actually a you're you're already know this she's a the daughter of ethan hawke you know they that wasn't even a german okay yeah that's that's their kid man so i it's funny because looks nothing like you wanna know she doesn't yeah i'm that she's probably adopted also saw nine i must printer and i know i'm an old man i would lean brand new book i was gonna say none but the martin in in ethan hawke he when he remembers martin either hot talked about fatherhood for a long time when he when she was about to be born in in in in in the funny thing about and we shouldn't say shit and but either hawk is this probably the roots of the divorce 'cause ethan hawke he was walking out with houma thurman she was pregnant in tired and she was like you come hell no she walked off man she says that she was mean mugging the whole time i just noticed him being there but the party by himself getting drunk and everybody which young girls in like nine months nine months taking you ahead only leave me alone but i just i was just a little bit like this is fascinating martius park a father who either now that she is oh my you should raise a few things it'd be fine she's she's she's great a cause cause she comes on like she's a throwaway character develops into so much yeah no it's just so natural and fun to watch and i gotta tell you man the when the comedy comedy works with the characters that are that are meant to be there come to release turned into a stephen dustin a robin in steve they have a dynamic as rob is always making fun of steve like yeah you ain't you you you're not ladies manager used to be are you now he's he's he's a flex man but murray brett gelman a old faster the new old dirty i liked him a lot man that that bad actors good and everything and yeah he is he is a thought that and i thought his art with really good with the the a that russian alexi because yeah yeah yeah because i you know most of the russians and you don't really have the personality but i liked him when he just wasn't embracing all the all the nasty things with america just all the process everything loving it yeah he found a seven eleven erudite loves him some woody woodpecker there's one man get on with cherish slush you've been wondering what the heck a cartoon he happy man he'll be announced that they're not forgot his name i think he really is eastern european but i liked them to well i loved it how like there's there's so many you know it takes place in the eighties and and they they work in this kind of we've indifferent references like they bring up phoebe cates a lot even you know even having the russians is bad guys but to the point of having their own russian terminator in there oh yeah terminated were so big and they like you know what let's get something like that yeah this is really give me that feeling of those old movies like nineteen eighty four you just you're making nothing okay so maybe maybe that's something with me because i i i like the the the the within the dollars and everything rates would appoint number three i just feel like the writing is not as strong because i do feel like is most depending on a on this daljit you know in in really i think the light a tone of this kind of makes it feel like it's not for me a written as well a you know when i when i look at this the kind of feels like it kind of feels more like a kid show now not granite kitchen with a lot of fucked up imagery you know in in darkness but i think this communist giving us a lighter tone is making it feel like some of the some of the things in here contrived underwritten a there is a lot if you look at this is about four or five moments of just in the right time saves yeah just and just at the last minute i would just in the right time saves a you do that i did even one time with me in the movie i'm like you say that for you climax of something even then that's a little of looking dry but whatever 'em the bad guys and miss the russians do the straight out of a car to they they're not even character's they're just there to be bad guys and something to be either a you know a year and you run from them or you killed him except for the one guy lexi but i mean they even have one henchman he would i wish i could have got the part i wanna pull anything from netflix and give us clips of but they had one rushing do you that he played his real hard human walking back all up and he lives near you know like jesus manner yo yo you know i know you're evil but shit you don't have to like play the part that heart a which brings me to the point is you're talking about a you know they have to appoint with a heavy terminator they have a do here he's he he pretty much is a he is honest worsening i mean he jacked his hairstyle man yeah you know we gotta talk about those watching it and it's like man they just couldn't get arnold schwarzenegger for this yeah just through oh and one now they couldn't afford it but they got the next best thing i was thinking like i was wondering man you know are they guaranteed i'm gonna lose well i thought like is there a point where they're gonna blow this man up and on his face you're gonna find like a excellent though still scoreless up man you know i'm gonna be engineer it's picking up do the one hand is it it's a he has terminated and i know there is a throwback to terminator i you know i know this probably intentional i think the human threatened this season is definitely the weakest like i look like the district has ever been when matthew modine you know in the first season like him just being the the you know the the black tides government official just the manipulator you know with eleven and they had a personal he had a personal relationship with one of the major characters wears these guys just don't the personal relationship the big is the mind flair and that's why i think like through billy that's what makes it through clearly an end edge the supernatural element that the person which but the season where it's the russia's stuff doesn't have the russians but they're they're they're they're losing a video game just are when i say straight up a cartoon a comic book i mean you got the you got the snarling general who brings in at some point the mad scientist looking do stressed out of an older man he rescued dressed up in the mass on glasses he's got the the typical tools you know the ball i'm a yeah the rattle off yeah i thought all right you know this is not a direct anything this is just calm down a lazy right here but a decorated with the number four with having so many things i feel underwritten i do think that on in the show this is why i feel like a stretch because i think the show relies heavily on daljit more than ever has before a i see it in there but i didn't feel like any of it was relying on i you know i'll tell you why because i could i could do a comparison right here i can't richaud clips from this show but a you know in a the first the first a season the second season if they if they were reference something from the eighties it felt like it was a natural part of life a season to all of them get together to play dragon's lair and that just kids playing a video game a church see you know like hey what fans of dragons land made on parts of this cause i'm he's been a game to me this is relying on this dodger this not relying is worked in this part of the show that just kids playing the video game you know they were seeing a lot of that video you've seen a lot of video game but that's what kids do and it's like hey remember this video game but they're not like they're not talking about like oh dragon's lair this is the first later this game out guys we gotta play play this because it's not like it they don't mention it they just played a there's a point here where new coke man they might as well done a commercial nicole like this is this he's catching it is better anywhere that they are and how much have you talking about the new coke were still eighties that they had max max headroom out there doing that right now the reason why let me draw comparison for you they a date and talk about dragon's lair they just played it and they showed you them playing the game they never mentioned it at all they did a whole thing they tried they had attempting a moment where they had to like talk about they have to talk about new coke and they did this whole back and forth you drink a new coke man when he don't drink and go well i think it's good it's all good but it's like all right you know i mean this is what you stop the point out something from the eighties a it reminds me the time that when people try to mimic turn turn tina writing it let's talk about something that's from pop culture and and try something clever with it like wow you stopped and practically did you don't do anything did a commercial a i thought the whole thing with the stopping the movie to saying a you know i'm not gonna i'm not gonna i'm not gonna tell you what party saying but you recognize his phone number why do you do a little dreaming for the talent show you like alkaline geigo largely i never knew store i i would i would say go along way they are maybe one of those dues may cause of google you owe it to the betty within google god limbaugh limbaugh the l i m f h l la i was thinking this had the worst overall everybody knows this all those turnaround in stung by bees he he he may never even story at people love that song about bob man you know people i'm sure they love the thing i'm not gonna i'm not arguing people i'm in the minority on all this well you know what you make good points in that scene i wasn't thrilled with it wasn't enough to make me go now know about this i was i was already riding the wave of having fun with it but i was like this is a bit much i tell you they did something in there where a i would i would have hated this and i don't like it but i would have hated had they not insert something funny witted a they they're the party of new with that that actually made me laugh i can't say even when it is just a small part and i thought okay you're not you're doing some clever with that enjoyed it help but they did it with a with a with a with another character like so another couple of character that i like how'd you feel about this i was gonna say i think the the product placement particular kind of little agree just like you go like every time they're drinking coke that logo would be be right out there is like okay i i know what you're doing is using it i didn't feel like it was always there and i know of course the whole setting isn't like in the mall and everything you see jc penney in radio shack and things and bottom there were certain things even doritos that they constantly advertise guys little little little run a placement in here and i think that's a difference to dragon's lair has nothing to sell the game is done nobody southern that product yeah you know i don't mind stategy not trying to sell something to but coke okay okay i i get what you're saying now 'cause i think back with previous seasons seasons with my kids watch it i have stop and go like all right just so you guys know back in the day this meant this this meant this yeah but this one i only did that with new coke yeah yeah yeah but i i you know i i do yeah blatant product placement you're right i don't i'm not sure i mean you gotta pay for some now but yeah but you know you don't like let me try plays many of the people jump on me saying like man you really hate 'cause you you complained about his hand but i don't i always hated 'cause i 'cause i understand some product placement just places everything in the real world 'cause we grow up us along with none everybody drink beer all right so you always felt like you're watching something somewhere else and so my first start using real products that was that signal like oh this is happening in our world yeah so i don't always hate it but there are times when things which is right up in the well i don't know if they had just drink coca new fun right right it's it's blatant here yeah but they gotta stop the talk about some other things but yeah it just brought it up i thought it was gonna do something later inada now you made me stop and think about it it's like oh yeah really kind of didn't yeah that that makes a point to like either put in the background are leading up to something we do make a big deal about but yeah you know a number i mean there's the obvious reason why they probably should slow down on this maybe not try to make any more seasons even though we are going to get one talked about why that might be a good thing in a little bit but i mean these kids get older man i mean you know what point where they going to be the scooby doo gang run around some mystery mystery dressed up in striped shirt like god damn chili bowl haircuts i think they know what i would take i would love it if these kids end up they they never they they just they're just they they they never get past the stage in their life will be filling yeah i told i told her he likes to go and look him up yeah you know i was telling a chris chris like who the hell is that like i had to show up man if i don't know if a who email philip says it's almost like these kids really did grow up the beatles guy like this it he's another peewee herman type dude just a big man child still wearing heels closing shit let me see oh yeah tell me that even stranger things and they're just got stuck in the upside now he's been there forever so have you talked to lebron she's still she got kids now oh my god yeah i would i'm being serious to like if they if they have stunted growth in egypt became like the picture them again they became like just socially retarded doesn't talk about like that and it just kept wearing the same kind of random will slow stuff like even at this age even the eighties like y'all look to grown to be you know well that was the funny thing when they when they first come back on and you see mike fin wolf yeah yeah i like i like man i've seen that kid in another movie he's kind of grown up now and then see him here but still wearing socks everybody you can't catch a break with these rates initially all white grew up but even still dress and then pretend like article is not permanent like nah nah man in the got white or yeah man i would love it if they get kevin that he's still going around try to solve crimes no i i it at this point bringing them back i think we'd be like the second part of it where they're all grown up yeah have a reason to come back together well you know what martin let's get into a the reasons why i think they should keep this going in you hit on that one right there i said if we do this again no people don't compared it but we can't make it all the way with yeah yeah it is it yeah so go out of the way with let's bring back as a college students you know i i wouldn't mind and be a little bit older and a you know a grown people you know to take place in the early two thousands of something yeah i you know i i would not mind seeing that have a reason to give back together up that way i i would love to see a another season if they would do something like that but you know also i'm telling you man a i think as long as we have this this this creature the minds layer in this dimension that we know nothing about this you know this deal a wealth of material to be taken from within and you have government's gonna go hey what if we open that yeah yeah yeah i i think that if you wanna keep going that creatures so fascinating i love that creature yeah that's the thing about it man this is the season really stood out in production now i will tell you right now the underground facility they have the russians i felt like a laser tag me that's what but the stuff with the creature in the harness those my favorite things in him in a you already mentioned some things and i couldn't say anything yesterday but i wasn't told agreement with you now a particular about a you know john carpenter's influence one is from a the thing you know the the there's a lot of a hard here where like just piles of blood and guts in me you yeah destruction of like the human body patient on things like that and then i you know what i also thought somebody this was like a kind of like oh to the blob if the blob just looked like a big pile of bloody diarrhea 'cause he could cause the dubs creech could crawl through anything yet adores and whatnot and i thought that that scared and that's scared me about the blood the blood only dope no fucking dog just crawl under they're you know for plus when they possesses someone it's not like oh it's got your mind but maybe if you kill it you could turn the north non back to the people who are possessed by the streets keep that alive lousy lives but even then you just some people just turn to a pilot goodness yeah and i and i and i would horrify man i love that didn't give a fuck that couldn't give a fuck about the adults and kids i like how they need the us does it need stranger things is that it's at times like a kid show with don't give a fuck about kids you're not afraid of murder them and horrific way yeah no not at all man not at all it's like you've only one kid vigilantism kids have turned into a pile of guts and i'm like jesus man i love that they they do that creatures brutal mental give up that's the one thing i've always liked with all the seasons that they introduced a new type of creature that's the thing that i this is my third after the season is just a total design house and mazda john carpenter and also david rosenberg just all the body or it's it's really cool that you liked decreasing oh yeah yeah correct it quite a bit at it i like i said i've i've found a debate scarier in each each time they keep up in there yeah yeah no that's the one thing that i 'cause i thought i thought it'd be like the hive mind thinking that's another thing with the series series is like this care did you think you've seen or you think they're gonna make it in nah nah nah you got the gulf and they don't give a fuck about a that last episode is my favorite same here that last episode because the last episode and i think that last post did what the rest of the series should have done ended with the emotion in the direction the writing but i thought what made the other seasons as great is they are 'em noah i think that if they can if they could make another season in even if they do it with these kids again you know it's just the further bitches who we know right now a i'd be down for it if they if they capture what they did not last episode last episodes great me a and they will need to put bullshit nearby had and he's there is some mental mental brain this particular person back all that person's gone like no man just stop you know come on now they're gonna make another season a you know a there's a rule if there's no evidence you then that person did know that that's the thing that that's like the weakest aspect of like i like the finale for the most part that kind really showered it from me once they do that particular character is like come on it's so obvious near wyoming hint at it we already know it just feels unnecessary yeah when you say okay that's that's gonna bother me 'cause i'm like yeah this is a great episode over here but that one thing of liquid bullshit you know unless they server expectations yes that they could do that which which they have done it's like yeah even without showing any thing you saw what happened to everyone who lives in the area yeah but they've never kind of block that you know perfectly maiming characters and so why not show up for that particular person so i suppose that's true new yeah well let's wrap it up my old you give oh no i give it a full price i it's it's rare that i i'll benja show all the way through a an all the stuff that you were talking about in the especially in the beginning that that are things that are you know could be considered weakness is sexy laughing and enjoying the show i like seeing the character the the different things they've done with him watching the the change them growing up in just you know i i know just me personally watching it with my daughter who's about to leave a college that that whole ending we're both sitting there just trying not to and it just crime as a yeah you you gave your is already which would give us a matinee they're they're a lot of things i really appreciate about this static a certain storyline the cleveland with the kids i thought that that was still the strongest aspect of of the series but stuffing hopper in so many other characters i just thought it wasn't strong enough for me but i i hope that the next season does dependably and the series because they don't think they can keep extending yeah i felt like okay we could were good here yeah yeah you guys clearly done some things you could do something else but you have to know that i i don't know man i i'm i'm almost had a matinee with this a i still think it was written all that well i'm giving i mean but i did as it as it went along a i'm kind of bored by the first three episodes but you know by the time they got to a six six it's picking up yeah me by the time he got eight that last episode yeah all the monster stuff yeah i wasn't joined the cat doesn't really doing fun i gave a very high rental and then i read on netflix so there you go you know but yeah i just i i wasn't crazy about it as you know the two episodes even in my i wasn't crazy about the episode season to a luxury like season to the one episode i didn't like at all ticket but yeah but i still have fun with this a like i said i that they they will do another one i think they need the value of some things aren't as strong in pick those backup but let's say they set up a lot of things these characters to do that but again like i said a lot of people enjoying this man like people are a lot of people loving is in a well known agrees owner argue with somebody about this being the best season i i i wouldn't call it the best in his much as you had the heavy other seasons of set this up yeah this is the one i felt the most emotionally involved in yeah a lot of people enjoying this and on and on and that's that's cool man i i don't think by any means the this episode but as far as the munsters stuff go yeah yeah action they up stakes on that area as far as they could be the creatures goes i think that they built up in a and that is the best episodes of that what does give me hope the fourth season is that they they they listen the criticism particular if their characters and they're writing so hopefully they will make the proper adjustments for season yeah we'll see we'll see not against another episode are another season a think they could stop but hey i'm down for another one and see how that happens a which what am i saying they are you know i mean come on netflix is yes flagship series yeah exactly exactly should netflix is council she just couldn't wait for this needs real man rigor equi chamber we all get up fucking waiting tables bottles a all right let's see what we got coming up next right here because we gotta get out of here pretty soon 'em i'll say this for another day man i think this'll be good i'm prepared at mount on my wife's new yeah it's five forty one win over well tell you what let's take a look at take a look at this trailer here as we say man people been talking about how man you know i'm really tired of all these disney live action remakes man and it's funny because i didn't say you know what if every time somebody makes a comment we're gonna put on a new trailer now people you're mouse says you're tired you're dollars w now yeah not not say something else we look we got the frog prince's right we gotta be honest they randomly say something somebody somebody at open a mouthful and they said well let's see now milan there you go and they had the live action is a teaser i guess it's not fish right two and a half minutes llamas about a minute and a half and they have the teaser full moon lining no you could see her as a woman in as a male if you know the story line out you know so i will say this perfect store if it is aging most takes place back in barbaric ties they tell you bitch getting the kitchen and cook and when you're done let's make that baby when i get home i noodles better be ready yeah my little baby ready we make it a baby after that oh it makes anywhere no shoes when i watch barefoot he got his tiny yes if he wants to fix it about the among go fight in the army and i'm also have better than all these other do that here a mere woman saw the story in glorious is beautiful animation nuts in live action let's go and take a look at the teaser make sure execute it up to the milan will come back and give your opinion we have the matchmaking town you speak should not decided commission what is going on why whole grain to be on the corner can enjoy anytime you me on the whole and he knew he knew we are ninety you know i love how back in the day they used to like to win doing they'd be rockin members have been got the point of making the women had back then too low meatballs a okay so we are no by this point taken from some people say the animated classic at this point the same name line hundred across the northern border now all of china knows your here i believe mike oops stop him i won't take any chances general i ain't gonna take no ship real fight him for us one man from every family must serve in imperial i mean you shouldn't have to go on there are plenty of young men the flight china it's on to protect my country and my family you know you know on i will died doing what he might i know my girls in new york at the fargo say this if tomorrow now it did take that trailer did take a a some of the more serious moments from the from the animated film you know which was set up which is what we're seeing right here and i'm looking at that and then in and i'm thinking you know a when you take those most serious moments in it it starts not looked like the the animated film anymore a in my resemble that part of the animated film but it takes me back to you remember when like the hong kong cinema was getting mainstream in the nineties late nineties and two thousands and everybody was talking about it a you know you had the crouching tiger hidden dragon all the things that they're just reminded me of one film that came out the not those those should why work and things like that made me think of that deadly move you remember here oh yeah yeah go wrong things he must have gone empires most infamous just reached this show oh yeah has one of my favorite all time yeah this is you know i look at this and not thinking man you know the if they're doing that they're gonna be making the m a more serious version of milan you know you're gonna be getting a what feels like more of a un asian drama asian period piece in drama then you were with you know some of the more fantasy elements of blue line yeah there's no talking drag yeah that's what i was cracking he's not gonna be in it either no no you know 'cause that's that's that's what i was thinking with this and we know when i saw this whole time look it up here the whole time i was looking at this now is waiting i said we a we're not gonna get a side of a moot point with the senate but you know we got moved the dragon moose you whose voice by eddie murphy end we don't have any of that and here man we don't have any of the end it makes makes me wonder if it just didn't fit because a you know it it certainly doesn't fit the tone of what we just saw either no no it does not i mean think about think about it man you see a this is on a firm didn't speak i tell you i just got this together right win a right when we were coming in i saw this as right as we walked in here but you know there's certain things but they just don't do it i would love to see how it fits 'cause would animation you could put stuff in either don't fit together to write songs dissolve the sake of a comedy you know everybody loves animation and stuff like that but i'm looking at a i'm looking at what we have here like the scene where you meet move shoe man a i i think the state with a live action so i'm working on it when life bowling gonna take a miracle to get me into the army no not in the mirror myself a he's too good score take america should not go go get me now maybe by mastering you're gonna say you're gonna work sylvie notes gunpowder along with gospel wasn't been you know what a day i'll kevin hart cricketing i hope you do it you know you've missed okay looking at what they do with milan here and knowing that as you say they're not gonna have have a they're not gonna have any kind of move shoe in phoenix i think there's a phoenix yeah but i bet it's not gonna be more by about funny black man i don't i don't think so you know a looking at that gives me a lot hold for a lump because we've always said i liked the kind of playing playing a straight with this honestly watching that that he's got goosebumps yeah i thought this is what i've been wanting to see from me you know it's it's it's it's sure it's milan but it's it's a different movie it's not just a oh that's remake this cartoon not remaking the enemy straight up early imagining mhm yeah and and being a a a serious movie like this because there are serious things going on here well it's a it it it it's it's a great period yeah i mean you know a with what they do here concentrate on if you're gonna do it live action concentrate on the things that make the period piece great it'd be great in wisconsin in concert on makes a period piece great as far as the story to i look at this and i go head i never known anything about milan i'd wanna see this yeah yeah yeah no i'm a product excited about this more than anything they've done so far 'cause i know and i and i guess they're bringing in phoenix is gonna be a slight fantasy element to it yeah definitely yeah i think so honestly you know a if feels i mean milan was always kind of like more under appreciated of the you know the ladder disney golden the new golden age films and that's what i kinda wanna see was these films are kind of forgotten popular ones because they're just repeat the same beat some knows yet because they're still love it but the ones that aren't as a pre shit they could change it up more people but i don't think they bothered by it yeah so yeah i mean you look at the i don't mind them doing this if the if it's if you know if you if you if you wanna say you're movies the part because you know what the lion king man i know they're gonna do some things the lion king this a little bit different they're not gonna have animals singing as much i mean of course i got put the circle of life and they and they gotta put a couple of times they put that in there you can feel like oh yeah you know they don't put all that in their a in what's fiance gonna sing she saying came to the left and i heard donald glover okay singing together a looks like they're really concentrating on they are leaning towards these be more realistic animal's life not in my little friend some born to be others spend the lions and the shit look man that's my dad today mean but but it looks like they are retelling telling the story pretty much in that you have to be the whole project the you know the gateway to the point where they wanna call it let's see if we can create these things really animals get okay that's cool i get it you know there's no you're dealing with animals but you know this is the more human story and i don't wanna see those repeated what's funny side kicks and things like that i love seeing when i see you need done it just different enough to where things stand on its own a you know we will see how this works out man is but i'm more excited about this like i said anything done yeah but they're just look bad ass made us oh let's see how you felt about a man who's gonna say also we don't really hear any type of like the sons and you know and i wonder if they're they're just not gonna make this a musical well i think it's gonna be an action epic i wonder if if if they'll have part montage is the music from those songs will maybe they'll be running over it yeah maybe but yeah no i maybe they'll just go straight drama big song in america man out of union which i get that one really fit with what they just showed us which is very dramatic so a dark well you know what what they could do is there are with that there are different ways to do it 'cause you mentioned it a you said they could saying what i tell you what you're getting out of training montage saying i'll make a man of you if they had training montage are what if they just took what they just took the music indian used the the lyrics yeah let's get down to the karaoke version i'll tell you what i probably wouldn't work for this because that sounds like more of an american military or west and then yeah then a nice yeah then then then then the asian i bet to make it more chinese they'll probably have a lot percussion lot of drums which is always been a big part of the culture instruments yellow that that american yeah you you switch those out for different instruments yeah yeah i am a man that was just broadway so sunny all yeah yeah so i mean you're right if they they could they could actually like it shifted to yeah yeah to end the the big song out you'll bring honor to assault yeah the beginning when they wanna see how they do the horns a cause on sale dirty i i tell you man in milan a i must not my favorite one but i love the character design is kids especially a little girls they love you know what i am britain while repeat hey man i'm glad they do i'm i'm if if that's something that a young girls were really motivated by then i'm i'm all for it man always thought that a had a great great character designs man always stop the huns where you know they drew the practically as a grill yes op animation but they're scary looking to a is that this yeah this is a the the the the the the art style for this i've always loved about the character the real anglers plus character design of this so i wonder how they gonna do the hunts man a in here a problem how they were in history but you know conquering 'cause you could see they look like vampires like you can't things and all that kind of stuff in a in the movie but you know i wanna make a big and you know kinda huge and stuff like that so let's say you go a lot of things no more interested to see what they will do translating these things over another i know that they're probably gonna do something different yet yeah when they show us this sure do hercules and the hunchback yeah yeah i don't know what they're doing they gotta do see josh get hit people were right about that all right i like you know what it's five fifty six we could do this we could sure we could do this real quick all right i wanna create a super bowl no no no you hear origin story in you because if you're not gonna see by a man destroyed in my life oh

this summer laid back is it really is a home alone a yeah man is doing well doing well i admired it's a dead in a family friendly sometime in the i couldn't mars still scaring people by the way for a latin a want to look up the worldwide gross but that in so far i think it's made this movie has made it's almost a billion none under twenty one point seven million worldwide what's that oh fourth worldwide also out of those movies okay well let's go ahead and get to get to a martin the number three movies sir yesterday la or the four total gross thirty six point eight million that's after two weeks looks like this is on his way to being a mild hit a better at last week looking it was looking bad in the belt thirty seven percent so not too bad and that's a bunch of twenty six million dollars but that is a title that will get you ask the advocate still old joke i told the girl who's the who's z what's the name of the girl just the brian james lily james the the the rep for this movie i told her i came out i said a you know a a i was watching a movie yesterday in you look just like lily james she says oh really what will you watch that made you think like oh fuck you know

summer worldwide this is brought in six hundred and forty nine i just go ahead rounded up six hundred fifty million dollars worldwide so not doing too bad at all a a lot of people loving this movie and there's no surprises here to be expected this movie did exactly what people thought it was going to actually know it'd be lower than what people thought but i mean come on you can't complain about yeah yeah made all the money but we're expecting more yeah it's still in the reason why is because it's lowest grossing toy story movies that open so it's yeah you know it's a it's still sore from that it's it's horrible expect the lucky it did get this money for a i think allows playing against it again i don't think the marketing is very good and hand is that it wasn't a sequel the people

a it has four hundred four hundred million dollars worldwide so far but this is the worst box office opening for spiderman moving really a homecoming made three hundred thirty four million on its opening weekend set rain is first movie made a that most money opening weekend at four hundred and three million dollars so i guess maybe because we're not time we have so many superhero movies so

homecoming was like well now racing homecoming they're excited about then they'll go out to this one i mean it's got the the high cinema score and the high critics praising yeah i mean look there's a lot of it is it's a it's a summer that's oversaturated to well like i said it's also someone they're full of disappointments yeah in a lot of people going like i think i'll just stay home and you

Levi Sherwood - Retirement and New Projects

"After its games two thousand seventeen. I kind of felt like it was just done like That was the last thing on aided to riding bike. Proficiently if you not. I mean argued cake chasing trophies but vertigo of tyson show. You could get more of them but get bored quite easily if that stuff choice. You challenge yet think what happened to just. He tried his base to build a vision of a rampton. Didn't work out in. Clinton was the one that the process for you have more chance of doing it at a true three sixty than eva would with a full size wheel and in that guys gio mitre a little bit and welcome to the right is launch podcast. I'm steve some feld your host four today and every other day on this podcast or as many other projects. I can find in freestyle motocross or anything else in action sports that i can get my hands on to even to the point that i'm near commentating video games of all things so if you wanna see someone commentate pixels doing the very best i can with the jumps t. Imax e fm amax world championship series. On facebook live. But i can't believe that. I've managed to get one of the greatest ever riders. Who's ever strapped on a pair of boots to sit down and have a chat. Not just the bad his career. But what i think is even cooler is his new direction after retirement and he's not even thirty years old. It is levi. Show would not that. He doesn't like doing interviews. But i do know that he doesn't have that much time with all the projects going on so i'm glad he had time to sit down for this one. I've known levi for many many years now having ridden with him like a narrative in which i spoke about with fung on the loss podcast interview and even a couple of the new zealand. Pham jam cam switch was for me. Personally they were the most fun competitions i ever did so oft watching levi progress so fast in front of our eyes. It was only natural that he shocked everyone with that. First red bull x fighters win with these signature. Rubber kids style and then he would go on to completely dominate. The sport of freestyle might across for the next decade. He was one of the big handful of rod as who were at every event and pushing all the time. And if you've listened to some of the other podcasts or you've heard me and other events like the world championships unfortunately for most. If not all riders leave our show would is my personal yardstick in which to measure everybody else by in so much as style. I'm not going to fan boy this too much. But just in my personal opinion. There is no other varada who is as smooth as levi in terms of freestyle tricks. They're of course guys who may go bigger and do nali things. There are more technical rod as maybe but for pure style with the level of tricks in his era levi is number one in my books now didn't focus too much on his writing career in his interview because we've all seen in progress over the years if you don't know too much there is plenty of youtube footage that you can go and find out how he got to the top of the sport. But i'm guessing you all know who leave i show. It is by now so in this interview. We look at his retirement and going into the next stage of his life. Which i find really interesting. And i know many of you listening to this podcast to as well as i even had a bunch of questions from one of our listeners. On this podcast clock williams who actually sparked this entire interview. After i saw a photo of levi doing this huge neck three sixty looking thing out of show last weekend in new zealand and i called bullshit on instagram. That he's retied. Clock was in the comments section and he asked hey why not get levi on levi sort and now here we are so thanks very much made for helping. Make this happen so you could say. It actually pays to be looking at the ride launch. Podcast instagram that was perfectly timed because of added some of clocks questions into this very interview. But also for everybody else if you haven't already seen my main supporter on this. Podcast rotates brewery from. Germany have actually helped me off a yougov. Some free be something that i personally love. More than anything is saying freebie flowing. And i'll add the link in the show description that you listening to now so all you need to do is go to the right as launch. Podcast instagram foot. Las enron house and tag a mate. Who you'd love to drink a beer with and hopefully pick yourself up a free mini keg via basically we want to get the word out there to more f. Amax or mode all action sports fans in general about this podcast and we figured if he doesn't help nothing will so if you're listening and you're a regular listener to this podcast or if this is the very first time you've listened and you're loving the show. Why not let your friends know about it. And let's grow this community of like minded people and if you're a modi rydah you'll know how important personal sponsors are wanna thank mind for all their support over the years including specter who have been working with a nod of the jumps but now they've sent me some sexy red bulls specked goggles which arrived in the mile las week. And i'm loving. How bloody comfy they are also likes networking who look off to my website and e mails and keeping me connected around the world customer. Mx motoric oils gb orthopedics dep pipes tc experts and rice effects. And if you need any products from any of those just let me know. And i'll save you can pull a few strings and get some deals for all right. Thanks very much for hanging around this long. I'm sure you're ready to get into this interview. And he what. The man the myth the legend levi showed has to say about coming out of retirement. First big question. I really want to know. Is you back after the fighters video. Genucel froma coming at retirement or something and osu mute. Now i've got no ambition to audit. Wanna play that character anymore. I i so enjoy rotting. And when i ride. I had a ride at like fifty. I can't broadly some was not really having fun. So that's probably why you're assuming it now having a few scenes in the bit gad. Aside the the big wasn't big boys toys. Shore year bigwigs. Twitches your but vigers for may. I mean around stuff I want to be at a push style here in new zealand for the i get a few younger riders and all that stuff so pilot is actually rotting of had to grow it. I mean i think we done nine nine shows last year normally light one or two shows a new zealand So really trying to push it in there. She would Covid connor put a skill on that end anyway so they are still enjoy doing that stuff. I truly enjoyed a lot more now. I guess the next thing is the photo on that video that i mentioned john. What was it three sixty knackers at an undefined. Visit a whip flip. What the hell was that off. See i mean. I i think i know what i don't really know what it is. It's just it's it's like a whip flip neko or a unlike to kind of spend them flava to share but just golfed One boss auguries in stapleford cooler fit fit technique. Just peel off. Pull pull the bias. One sought yep nice. It goes real bet. No i was just crazy saying the uh i mean i saw the photo i and it was just that flat the bikes flat. You'll flat lookin. Damn with the knack are ought not too bad for a guy. Who's your todd. Like on a handful of guys that can do a three sixty knack anyway. After what fifteen. Years of having three sixties. Good die of. It's funny shaven. Ridden runs like. Are you coming back on. Whiteness seriously. just haven't touched the boy not from Not that i haven't wanted a risks than being busy working on this project in whatnot was actually a ride months. Bef- aleisha Kobe absolves is planning is playing a game when i was writing the show. Not that i have know Like remained but not for very long time. I don't remember any times where i didn't enjoy riding but it just seems likely the slavsky avery. Tom averted my block of enjoyed it. More and more down to laker pressuring. Probably yeah. well that'll be a question. I'll ask you a little bit later on. But do you miss it like it's been now. What a year and a bit two years since we've really seen you in major competition since a ronin comb two games to contain. I mean exception Yes it's funny as lot laughing with the boys about doing that of venus slot main. I feel like. I'm coming out of retirement to cool retirement savings really knuckle to at a rod But now i'm do. I miss it. It isn't things i miss. I think always always One of like i mean. I'm not a big fan of traveling. But i do enjoy catching up with everybody. I mean you notice like we're friends from different parts of world. In the only reason we have to be one. Areas rotting dirt bikes. I do miss that. Miss competing i do. I do miss. And i've kind of filled that challenge void with other stuff so that really key for not having the challenge of competing. But yeah within the some stuff. I'll among the complete opposite in like that. Really gonna play that character anymore of having to go tron bay. The bist do whatever so now haven't really missed a thing to be just catching up nights and in order to their. That's cool though. Like at least it's the right decision And you're happy with that decision but can you just explain the injury That led to this like it was all about the foot. Injury right led to my dear retiring. Sorry cut all right you now mostly so. I broke my ankle to eighteen three weeks before exclaims it was. It was pretty bad. I mean civil my ankle. Would it still works good now but i'd love if at everyday but it's i mean it's not a major. It's so good. But i think like because after they i still plan to get back on bottom plan to keep riding during that Before i brought my ankle a started to say the end of time coming that i'll be finishing soon. I just didn't i queen always planned to knock off about thirty side also got another year into lean but didn't plan to really but the o's carnegie in that way before brought my ankle like already thinking about planning to but the happen oversea chinese things in the kind of got back on my bike and started writing. Well got back on my bought for one rod. But i not myself quite bad old. It was right before i was supposed to ride. Not throwing new zealand started two thousand nine hundred and knocked myself and that was pretty much it really after that is i can't keep us out. Net really wrote me. It took me a long time to just get bit to normal with concussion. Physically mentally bugs. I guess i mean physically and mentally. Like i do physical things from concussions on into things right but Yeah just real slow. No energy rule tied classic concussion. Things ru you get grumpy. I've been nothing can alert that that was took me a long time to come round from but it is what it was. Everything's doing good now. But it was probably when i was our time to move on in you. Just kind of happen from their fickle though but I was just wondering are you said leading up to the broken ankle which wasn't good already kind of thinking you know. Soon it was maybe gonna happen. That you'd retie was that because of the pressure of this sport of how nali it is old what what was leading you to that point already yet. For sure hedberg plan was what was it was It was a karna was finished. But i didn't know this is all i know you know. Will i new years charlie. New tricks to try one comes in where i was mentally was after eight games to doesn't seem insane. I kinda feel like it was just done like That was the last thing i needed to do rotting bike professionally if unanimity than anything to chase after that did united because all so of it was but it wasn't until i hurt myself Reevaluated things really start to think about it or actually these more tila and it was probably good. I don't think i needed. I needed a kick in the ass like that to actually move on or take a different path from the. Did you ever find like i kind of look back on your career because it's still. It doesn't shock me. I was surprised that you're retired. So young at the top of your game And it looked like you had sorry much more left in the tank to give even if you didn't feel like it but that's just what it looked like as a fan of the sport but lie. If i look back. I think yeah leave i was. He was the guy from red bull x fought as i. That's the way you just dominated almost every event that you're at same light. That was the main focus. Would i be correct in thinking that over x. games all was just anything I tuned up to the same to be. you know. obviously we're done visit this results and whatnot Pretty much we are spending by. My career really chose not to really write anything else and just focus on that obviously games year and whatnot but i just wished bidder with the stall of spiders events rather than games Scams is a very funny one for me. It's still as it sounds. Yeah it is. But i think he appropriate. Now on the yeah. That's kind of what. I got the feeling like obviously red bulls your major sponsor. And you've been with them folks on our donkey's years now Did you have a fine. Like it's the red bullivant it's red blake's fod is your killing it there. You know you put that little bit extra effort in for fahd as and like you said is different based that's yeah x. Games away surprises me with anything and everything you know how how it operates. And who's in. Who's out her gets. A coal who doesn't get a cold is cons of things. So yeah with ex five as i'll just think in i you've got red bull behind you fully to make that happen and you did well. There was a tough to to kind of leave that as well yemane as far as being goes eight was by far the beast I think any rata doesn't matter what helmet you hit. They took care of everyone. So that was. It was always good at makes it easy. When when events on your side. I mean took anyone goes and this is just the way way loft guys likes the just the way. It is but games different story. United got to travel halfway around the world from ice device is not help with nothing can end. It is what it is but Yeah it was always a pleasure to bed. So i was a had not really like i feel like i've been doing it for very long time. Conner has got to the point. It was more so after Bright my ankle is like argued cake chasing trophies but trophies of tyson. She'll yeah you could get more of them but get bored quite easily if that stuff or drive a choice in challenging gifts fortunate to be out to do that and sudan ways sarko no i will always are sydney. Actually just thinking you know. It's been a long time since we've crossed paths towards think of the last time that that i saw a bit due back ozos thinking The the one memory that conduct stuck at when are reversed. You'll you into a pet. It to a pal paul at schumer's place at the same time you jumped your. I think it was a kayaks to fifty f. into his damn anos for a unit five shape. Yeah i remember. It was a candy. Mba while are yeah that was Yeah actually i was talking about the day that was May my know still muddy on us something with them. Yeah i was just sitting here thinking 'cause like i remember that you like you actually packed up from australia. You will living in australia for a little while And then after. I crashed you you after. You sunk your bike. I think it was on a couple of weeks later you packed up and moved back to new zealand or did you just get the shit's with us. And that enough of this all may why to get out of the it off on mount held so my day was living in ozzy that stage so i i just kinda bounced bic and i spent about six months and ozzy six months here in the and i think i'd done another six months in the no into the states in the from then on. I didn't really been back. I mean being back for vince. But that's about as far as of bain not not gonna touch too much so on on the retirement anymore. Like i'd rather get into the good stuff and that's talkin about ramps and johnson cobb and bikes and things like that but it was funny like when will working up to this Red bull dirt diggers with not of the jumps last year. And in my mind. I had you like to have the rod. Is there as i yet. Live at this event It sucks you didn't get the because you all you're obviously still out with you injury. The time you still hadn't retired yet And then we were talking about having you it not of the jumps this she actually the world championships but we built your ramp last year for dirt diggers Sorry we had one next gen ramp built and actually they built to because i think they stopped up with the order into built And you didn't an apples absolutely bombed. Yeah yeah no everything kind of maine. Everything changed within china Into place but it was I mean what kind of a you're not like. I think when you're on the fence with something like i was with a little bit. I mean it sounds like a wasn't wasn't probably but i'm always a little bit depth when you still kind of carry on as normal and soon weiss going the was actually we were talking about heating iron doing events which would have been quite cold something different but yeah that's like i thought with dig as it was that event was free ride slash free style. It was in my mind pretty much thailand perfectly to your style of riding. I'll say all this is gonna be sick. And of course she couldn't come so that was a bit of a blogger and then Actually i really enjoyed thinking about the idea of having you come to the world championships at night of the jump. Switches generally an indoor arena. Kind of calm. I remember you said you hadn't done it before it was something completely different and that was kind of a challenge but then you know if colston then it was all ova saw. It was a bit of a shame bob. We were close. We almost had jovi. Almost these things happen things happen. You doing very well to get me to go to your to be Not that i'd like. I've been in europe. It's just so far away anytime. I was over there. It was generally a trust during a few things to give their rule Obviously but i am. I was always very hesitant. Tastier fake that's a. That's a long flight to get. Ivory sure is no well Let's let's get into the good stuff And we were talking about than the next generation that you've built Ramps is a big deal for you. you mentioned to me a couple of times like when will getting the plans jose well every year ago and i remember one thing that really stuck out and you would. I guess it's one thing that you've probably noticed turning up to different events and has always that piece of shit ramp that just socks and you don't know what happens when you jump at is. Is this whole ramps thing. Is that kind of trying to change. The spoleto change how everyone looks at building. Jumps building ramps. Whatever if for sure. Like like i was in the thick of it when a design that rain. I wanted to see change in sports. But i'm not and that sort of the sport now so it's not directly affecting. May i still think this change to be made for everybody to make it for them. But i'm not going to be here pushing it. I'm still got plenty of things i want to do. And and that kind of eerie. But if someone likes it prima if not unbelievably now with the rams at slyke win rodney's ramps that were designed and took the By ninety nine some of them just junk the along lower no pop. They were good for a long time but just the writings gone. Yeah surpassed the rates way. I think we need one standard to fear and not only a standard. I think they need to be a standard and the construction of the engineering of them. Like if you look at mice a year. The american ramps that use turkson gauge boxes They box section eight years on ramp the fifty mill by twenty five generally and they hit the facing the wrong way. So i wanted to have these ramos. That would run over the imprint subtle wing cracking and gets any kicks and whatnot. And there's not just. This is not specific to the. Us is just where. I noticed that the mice. Because that's where i ride but this is all all sorts of things like that even down to the extent of the size of the That really extinct like if you some of the guys went out. I'm talking about if you're gonna rant with toy bug a. mitch. They should grabs no blaze in it. If you don't take off completely straight or you want to cavite for a whipple whatever. They should grabs the insurance yet sought so it sound all. Yeah it's quite. I'm quit and for me coming from that background and understanding house. Who might and and understanding the siamese to make a good rampart. Crap muslim good anyway so it always drives me nuts way that came about so system Ramp i wanna. I wanna jump. So that's where the knicks gene rent came from and it was it was awesome. I loved it. I mean a writer. Probably right for about six months far bright brian cohen uneven. So much fun rodney black. It was short yet differently as a bit more dangerous than jump about high. But i'm actually about to pull it back out now because Fraud my ebay. Google tom now. I think that ramp may be on a dirt landing year like an understand why people don't wanna jump in. When i was running it all the time. I was definitely in different spice not much other Wasn't really hit. And but now he begs man. I think that's that's a. That's a good ramp to save even to the extent you might not jump. Suny jumped seventy three. When was running a little time in a feminist hippie spoiled issa. let's where it said. But i mean just recently advise ranks goes a guy way we go to ebay landing from gabe big. That's for shows. And i think this about full-point made us high which is priced for the bag for regular non mater rampant. Doesn't work very well. So three hundred made away which ultimate to the bottom and which prima Tinted guy. Full hundred mil but i think i might iran before i do that. And it just Mike nice and we jumped at about seventy three seventy three fake depending on the wind and just works works. A web swigs reflects these a lot of aws. Yeah that that's yeah. It's good to hear. Actually like i know what you mean with mesh. I never ride that much. Mesh in a strategy generally every ramp was built with plywood and we'd paint it and put some sand in the paint not aware of after bit three jumps. You'll is putting Rubber mocks up applaud ramp. And then i remember. When i came to europe the first time and i jumped full mesh run up on a mesh ramp. Hodges sent dog jumps. Soil debut yeah. I could not believe how far away went. It was ridiculous but then of had those ramps way like you said you get that big gauge mesh. And she bought so you get back targes digs in and you just end up peeling off to the left of the road when you just did not expect it. Cy like to he. You know that was one of the main things. Tron standard is the actual building. The ramps I think that's pretty important To get ause to think about that do it. Every time even who even to the point like get rid of the rams at they've got now like just guy this is garbage darn bring it all if you wanna ride it. Just have it at home. But yea there's it'll it'll be a transition period. I mean if if something was to come out and people make making new on sure enough that enjoy artfully and then become obsolete and then this is going to transition around that say the with the next gen ramp than what we you i. I you thinking that ramp would be astounded. Was that your idea that that would become the standard ramp. Oh was that your idea because you just wanted some other tricks to two lane but you have another plan for a standard A main look ahead the plan for that the rame to change things to make it tune into be like to be standard. Think for that to happen. You'd have to be other changes at bay. Like one of the one of the challenges was tuning up to vince. In having landings being built correctly age age track. Vota has there are in theory on in march of them. Very good by some very good at working with the though might china's but the certain voters A lot to make change and to be fair. I'm in the same boat. No one likes change too much but at some yep ramp wigs very well with a with a landing that matches at so that was another thing but now since then ebay's becoming a bit more mainstream which i think is absolutely epic asked me that five years ago said something different but i I don't think i'd be rotting freestyle for fun if it wasn't for ebay as cape may around. Not she enjoy it more because of an and like i said i got nothing to prove a hero in that which that world's The bags a helping that because you can get away with Generally the angle of the landing doesn't make as much of a big because he's but will give the already mullahs Are in works with the the biggest deeper. Sorry arm emba when we were talking about having the next gen at not of the jumps and at rebelled dirt diggers and all's asking you about The landing thank you. You told me five. Made his high. And whatever angle and blah blah blah iron and we. That's pretty fucking big. And then you went remeasured actually bit smaller than that. Surprised you that Yeah you your land at harm wasn't as big as what you'd sought bought. We meant the landing we might do to. His four was massive. It was so big. And then seeing guys like pat. Bowden and jared mcneil skwebe. Think couple more the jumped. It and i will go to the moon bought with a big landing and it was nonsense state. It looked good We probably could have made the landing even better bought. We had other ramps going onto it as well. I guess that's the problem like to try and have that ramp plus other ramps in a small space. It's like well you kind of A little bit of a sacrifice of maybe a compromise sometimes offers if there was just just the one ramp and the one landing croydon again. You quite get it too so everything now talking about a stunning comeback to me. A little bit Part of the reason i wanted the bigger rain was we went through the stage of quarterbacks absolutely everywhere only relenting in seattle paid four and a half to five made Yeah so i mean. We're games one year. We hit the quota pot landing. Which was the main free. So landing at austin one. And it's fine. I mean like you say does always negotiation trying to get everything to work in one with limited spice and budgets always emission. So this another thing is what i thought i was like i lays landings adidas. Stay with the corner pot. So one up to ramp to landing rather than landing to Very very wise words Sorry you've you've double flip that ramp Tom frontier at was x. Game seat any awesome. Yeah What's what do you think you can go with. This ramp like i guess they. The two major things was to double flip at the front flip. Is they all those other things you want to say. Donald at all coming down on it. Funny thing has implanted double flipping minnesota. And i figured someone's gonna just wanted to ramp. That i could do flip tricks. I could roll afloat and It'd be siphoned because ought to get back on my bought in. Can she swing off at. And that goes of old flip tricks in upright tricks webs. All of that. That's all i originally planned was the role of flip and swing off and really hang onto. It wanna bet. Sign thing of double grabs also. Thanks let it. Because at the moment if we've got a seventy five foot ramp it's not jacked up a minimum of one hundred and fifty mil you doing so well pillow a decent role flip. I mean it. There's a lot of guys out there doing massive ones but every time that you're dragging your front wheel into the landing so it's just is not a lot of ring era so i just wanted to give it more room era essentially if they wanted to give it a bit more breathing room. Yeah i mean the first. I i jumped at as mocking around to enroll flips. And i'll just hanging off just hanging there. Because i was like when i right it was set up to my big at home. I think i was just thinking man. I think i will flip this pretty shortcut and i was like cricket but some citizens i mean since the and i decided to the fine put lace once saw dragged it all the to next and she put the video on instagram raw and just Headed crank on to around for your sky so The thing around just around didn't really play. I think done three in the fine. I really want to jump in there any more than that and then brought it back and started doing it ebay from the it was. I remember i haven't done that since two thousand and nineteen. But i remember when i was doing still doing them on the forty five foot ramp as well as the seventy five foot ramp but it was easier for me to do it on the seventy five foot range. The forty five foot ramp. Wow i mean is it the same series then like when you flip forty five and then when you flip seventy five and you're seventy five foot so much easier than flippant forty years at the same maybe for the double flip a little bit now. It's easy i'm trying to remember. This guy mcphee's us now. One of the things was you could just crank it. Would you hit a but yet a bit of leeway but you just crank in you're gonna get it pretty good. Could macaroni doing light smoke. Flip tricks while was doing it and whatnot but then on the forty five at that stage if i crank the forty five i really hit to judge it. Yeah that would be. You know i could come in and land on my back if to heidel says a little bit. Like it's like it was a little bit but more brainless familiar do longer Get on And it was. It was a lot more fun. Spun ru slow in the green massive off that ramp so it was. It was pretty cool. Pretty cool feeling the next gen ramp x. games clinton more disaster and you went there to to jump. It would tell us what what happened there. And what happened there and one hundred. The next gen ramp will happen to x games. So yeah like you said didn't make it the x. Games that year which i think as a blessing in disguise for me probably would been clinton's position. Potentially i know shaney jump. The ramp ahead had a pretty hairy time but chains mad dog posing off. Sorry but yeah like from my understanding. I saint fighters of this ramp. That met nicole boat which is supposedly next gen rehm sitting at paula laden. Uptake schedule people to jump. No untouched it. But i knew that was supposed to be the ramp that was guide to x. games. But i knew it wasn't the ramp that design. By fi- it was from my understandings. He had built his own version of the knicks. Jane room for raising. I know they've been a lot of research and development bit put an in probably twenty as freestyle experience of rotting into this rape so really need china that point but was built incorrectly to his design and it was pretty disastrous Was really didn't help situation. Didn't help the rampant. Also it was a bit of a shame and you know that aside from may not really tuning up to with that rain which plan to. I knew that it was going to get a lot of backlash now. This is midst rambus. Just the ramp designed on you We owed at might change in interbay. Fail is probably the one of the worst for the most. My i didn't really Stuck in my ways but So i knew the only way That ramp off the ground does if i've done something. Pretty cool off in thin is no choice Jump on the bandwagon that love to hide it but at probably get a bit of my minton. That's that was my plan. Obviously cut a bit short full raisins where he talked about. Yeah that was my take on all of it. What actually went wrong Oh what do you think went wrong when clinton jump that thing now. I don't know i wasn't the i'd sane. The rain sang the seat up. Misspeaking to joshua data at that time but i was in hospital and i remember that to be but from my understanding. Just kicked Clinton now he will tell you what happened i. I couldn't tell you exactly what happened. I don't know if he jumped off Or whatever but at cinema really bids part of buna ramp is understanding how it's gonna lead you suspension. Some ramps drew elsom rent tags. Listen kicking Nets what happened here. Like i mean saying when i saint fighters of the ramp was flat paces in gouves also is undeniably designed. But it wasn't what does on myself in Like i this gone into it. And it'd been lauded tasting of a cowboy move on. I'm not scared to that by any means. China stuff like that really ruins. Our vinson comes We a whip together in late at egos adul- which sometimes is easier than done but different didn't in this case your think what happened to he tried his vision of a rampton workout and clinton was one that the for. Yeah that was a bloody heavy price. And i think that it's of course. The injury is is the worst part that could have been roles as well so a exactly. That's the thing that could have been voice. And he is probably lucky to get away with what he did from what i heard of the crash But the legacy is also another part of the problem and yeah we haven't seen the guy is taking up the the next gen very foss since then and you already said it like you nate. You knew you had to common component and or shar the trick that you wanted to do on it to for it to catch on how much. What us did this make that like to do. It ride like you knew you had to come with something special to make it good and to catch on but to have something so disastrous hit. It must have been ten times. Was yeah mean. it was an ideal know. The guys that x. games knew that it wasn't the design that is designed in quantum field boys of already The planes out so they knew it wasn't right but i mean yet like you said that probably last time i was gonna come without was in sydney games. The boys jumping the tone was doing front. Flips poets doing massive Pretty cool say but yeah just didn't have the pushing which wasn't was not the Maybe as we go into this ebay gauge it will have more chance of coming back. And like i said i'm going to bet the stateline backup now getting comfy on the block and in one of your Dilbert mobile cards sending. Maybe people get motivated from the videos or whatever but it is what it does fatigues off. It'd be great. I think people enjoy it. If it doesn't whatever on it was. oh good. that's cool i. I'd love to give it a shot We had set up there to dig as i suddenly didn't jump on definitely wanted to add my black but Now i was. I'm still out of action. So you've got the next gen seventy five You design a forty five foot ramp. But did you ever build that one year. That's being built. A writer built in both at the same time. I'm not gonna buy them. But obviously leading into x games that year this if i was my focus on you is only going to get one rain. App and the forty-five older forty five as very just a continuation of success made a radius. I think that's the top of my headset quite may For the hoffa mehta so just gave me a bit more leeway. Make a do meet you. Gotta adobe like double double flips and and things like that yet. Nothing toy special that the seventy five took a lot more working out in a drone that a ton of times but the forty five i i knew i like the way those forty five rams right anyway i. It needed a bit more to it. What do you reckon then about the moon. Buddha's and harry banks. Just got his juan from travis double back east ray sixty. Was that ever something you were interested in. We just like watching it now Watching the guys do it like do you think that is like is that a direction all the direction. Freestyles going as well America any direction. different here to predict the future. But it's they donnelly it. Basically but i i mean i jumped one bacon not stuff maybe two thousand sixteen it knocked off the which is not as big as what. Harry's got now Just remember remember. I'd done a double flip on a a really was just mcintyre. And you done to the. But there's in united states these a lot of potentials of here. I am making new ramps to give you more. Hang time which can seem joel. But i think if you combine that with decent bikes. We don't need to ed. Who much more risk. As far as hang as far as going to the moon yuna if we if and to to the degree we are now starting to think they i mean i have for a little while but the knicks. Gene ramp was on the bike. Assad thanks i think we could probably go back a little bit from their halfway between that and assuming five maybe maybe it means jumped seventy fate. But it's i think of of made a lot more gains with my bike. Then i have noticed ramps afi Where i'm going with it. So yeah yes. I'm i'm not saying yes. So i don i think i think that's Olsen that's one thing. I like about not droese. Heaven creek Skid to make change in every year this something different. I'm making big ramps but also making safe landings i'm all for a doing. I think a doing a great job of the some yet is what it is. That is that matching the takeoffs with dixon landing in very sorry. I think what nitro doing was heat of the game of the first two thousand sixteen. Maybe the they were doing. The landings already baked in something on a stunning tech series. It should be incomes. So i think if other events went down that path with cypher landings in would kate the sport gras and keep the guys within the sport longer. There that definitely on the right track. I couldn't agree more absolutely. Couldn't agree more with you. On that. I i love it. I love santana I wouldn't wanna do it bought. I love saying it. Bought at least saying with Yes safe landings. That's the most important thing. So yeah i mean we'll actually took him at landings and more bad jumps. I know you were all about building. Some free rod jumps as well And i know you've got some good machines at time i you still into get nat jumping in the digger and Carven carven something into the hill or is that time also conduct iva and you spending more time in the garage I am not like i i. I would like to have the time to do that still. But i haven't i haven't carved any jumps in probably of rebuilt cross-strait probably once a year. But i still love just getting out and rotting some natural stuff. But i'm no hero. Just enjoy doing it but not not much happens around here on the side of things. Everything's well ever go on. That's a shame. Bilious maintain override other people's tricks. More more nancy's it pay twenty bucks and garage. But yeah i mean i. I'm not saying i'm not gonna do more of it. Just at the moment of being so swamped with my design stuff that i haven't even had a chance to get out there. Haven't really been in the dugout made. The my is saying in. The last couple of years is like normal excavation driveway stuff and boring stuff so you try to avoid it to be have jumped in and done a couple of dries yourself. Not not just minds. Scented out stuff and stuff around the house but Yeah i i enjoy being an dega building jumps but any soda real C'mon you see me doing really have to phnom. I'm with you on that one. I if it's real work and someone expects a good job i'm not going to be the god coal if it's if it's stuffing around and trying to get the jump raw l. I'll give that a shot and i'm quite happy to sit there all day until i get raw. Yeah that's it cy young. Obviously the you'll focuses Designing and you're working on the ball and that's really what i wanted to find out About and i guess it did it all start. 'em are wrong in or as my memory quite hazy. But did you start with mountain. Bike frames or bmx. Frames is that connor. The first thing with the shogun you you don't now you're being on started making friends years ago and then just con- escalated like there's a longtime the where i was riding but i'd always a spent more time in diggers and my workshop than writing bucks mice mockery to be but there's a long time they were on work on a random stuff but big boss coz just be on engineering would've of stuff for the workshop anything cast off track stuff whatever and then that was at a time where i didn't like i lost the patient and riding a little bit in the one thing that helped me find it a gang was redirected my patient of engineering into stuff that was beneficial for my career whether it be ramped so box and that's really what probably keep me going. The last five years was The challenge of pushing learning myself on engineer engineering Comfortable work a welding machining. Or anything like that even down to just box it up. Nice that keep me get my patient there. Keep it alive and probably pushed me further. Not would've if i didn't i was kind of getting a boon tat. Gam ran two thousand thirteen fourteen. That's gonna win that change but started out with the be mixes in kinda strange transition into debt bikes. Say i did pick up on something. Because i remember. It must have been about thirteen or fourteen. I remember commenting to an annex autism. I i maybe it was just something i could see in your eyes. Oh maybe just how you held yourself at the arek in always been doing has been making that betamax frame by and whatever. It was a member you put. Some fod is up on like pretty much. Everything at the time on instagram will face exxon even know what it was but all it was was just you making france what. I don't even think he's written before this complex. He's just in the garage in the shed just building like and turns out. I was right. The guy was the case requested like dirty noise. Sorry it's crazy then to think from there like use that as if it's your motivation to keep going and work on stuff to keep you freestyle. Career gone on bought. He eua just completely blowing. Everyone's minds like i'm pretty transfixed. Actually just looking at instagram. To say what else you you building in the next pace of gadget trees that comes out of your place and and it is something cool like is it for you to sit back and realize that you've made a bike. Will i read the other day. It's eighty nine and a half kilos if that's correct. You've made a bike. That manufacturers can't get that law and rice teams dont get that law at and they're spending millions upon millions every and eulogised Wondered in his shit is really. Don't on me like that but this is. This is a couple of things that work in my favor. In terms of what you just see it as we were one man is very easy to make and it's very cheap. You don't have to go up and down t's within a company to get permission stein if work of these regulations. That's another thing. Is these relations with the black. Which i think is absolutely great if we Regulations afraid outbox kill the sport. Yeah daily thought. I hate on on side. Night to that with regulating fray staubach's should be wheel size. Oh because that is the main fechter. The performance factor. In the as soon you if you drop the wheel size you're going to be able to spend a lot better on different axes. But the net khanna kills the sport. I think so you went down to an ideal. You have more chance of doing it at a tree. Three sixty eva would with a full size wheel. And then that guys ngo minor a little bit but the mind has come. Positives negatives While we will end up running similar black anyway but anyway going back that's That's why i say. I can make changes like that shorts not shape online but it's cheaper than what is big companies can do and also. I'm look like we're not a lot of people have had me out black white. He may come farber tow break it. Oh do this. When i designed that that you're saying the old one there has been designed purely full performance like i didn't care if i fell off the staying in prague As long as it didn't break when i was riding fits purpose f. I crashed at didn't break. It was potentially to be in it. Didn't it was not fitting if you not. I mean there's a lot of different factors which help when coming back to that. I guess my eve just blind my mind. I'm still thinking about the wheel sizes far out roy on ever thought about that Would you think the in free stall. You're just talking about the regulation. would that kill it. The alike would not be a good thing to say some guys try it and see what happens. I don't know it's not. I mean as just my opinions but audit like the idea of so part of building. That black for me was i. Want to build a beast freestyle block. I could. I wanted it to resemble a bike if we follow suit and guidelines like that sudan are not re rose i wool. I wanna buzz. Might the wheel size needed to obey the same and then made to resemble duke and well. It's gonna stop as before. We know that roddey motorized scooters or something. Yeah he's going to be a in. That very weird will lose. Will lose where i come from and go into something else. It'll transition to something else now. It's kinda like You know you've got. You're not gonna be gone. Rod slap style of beans. Because she'll the beaming could probably jump out of that stuff but they that there's a reason why beaming spend so much bigger than a hard towel mountain bike and nets purely on wheels Jars which practically kit you strike. I mean going back to. Its why i don't like four. Fifties is this match. Ingen white is summit rotational mason. That motor that the bike so rigid in here that you cannot opt out. This guy's at rod them very well like look at shane. He can spend three sixties. Bilk that can spend three sixties very well but the the bought for me personally. It's just active enough at its oil Written off and on ramps over the easiest for a bit of fun but only your own movement in the ear has to be done off the off whereas side. The by that you're talking about i can. I can leave takeoff ending. I can just tell it what today really and it seems to. just follow. say this this idea. Some of the stuff of chased. That's unreal I want our into everything. Don't expect you to rattle off every pot because Smack my my former boss. That free-rider he he's just written a story friday basae. I'm sure he's written down every single pot and they'll be pictures in that magazine So i'm sure when gonna upstart that one but one of the main pots of that two thousand seventeen bike That allies pfizer out about now. what what are what are the main bits and pieces that we should be looking at gone. Yup that's that's the wrong direction. That's why levi's thought of that. What are the main parts. So that was what i finished out riding on was what i call my bike. I road practically that bike. Exc games in two thousand and seventeen with the carbon fiber that had all the south. That was on it. Just not the carbon fiber. I'm so that that's more static white stuff which is Very important but not as kirsch was the other stuff But the main thing was swam Gas Steering stablize was amazing. It was a. There's a personal thing. I never locked. The steering stabilize are locked. My whole career until i finally figured that. Sit up front. They box three years old. Now nivose stabilize the science of works just as good bota better than the al. gp properly you see somebody in in the pits at an event gone. All she's bloodied lee can again and the square oiling. The stabilize a is just off. The shelf ryback But that bike. As i based off what i've started designing with my company to release the From that baca A ton of stuff just around the she saw two things with the swing on in the now since that bach of developed triple clamps The good thing about what. I've developed now as i head on that black was modified. You can only make student changes. But then mrs with jump theresa assurance sony. I'm quite a lot but at actually load the rear in drastically in you if you look at fighters that bought say the folks slammed are bet. Twenty-seventh mill the practically touch. My handlebars cow. The reich Somewhat standard but it still far out so problems. That could address. When i'm mike sank from scratch of actually with the swing on offshore. but i've relocated rethink to suit Which means that you can just check the swing on on but it's going to keep your original stott slightly original in travel and ordering As well as with the triple clamps relocates the front wheel at max that Very well like those of the biggest things out due to anybody tonight them rodwell so i've got he which is practically stock off. Put on a swing. I'm in my triple clamps maker actually done a feature on billion the year before the carbon black and that rides nearly as good as the carbon black obviously. The white is practically stained. I've changed the little things but it's mostly stock but with lies things i can. I can double flip very casually as very nimble in the afc to whip and ready to go. You don't need a mockery and too much nicer than gonna where. I was going that stuff but from the cabin as probably the biggest thing that china to notice the fuel tank overseas now the big one and the obviously the coast of carbon fibre by fire. So which which is at made a mess mess of difference but not to the extent of what the swing arm does. I'm i'm blown away. Because that i mean it makes sense because looking back at that footage of double flipping. It just looked like a piece of cake compared to watch. And shaney dabo flip. Anybody else can't remember. Who else stubble flipping at the time But just watching you do it. Just didn't even give it a blip in the air as just pull off the lip target around a couple of times and you landed and just looked as easy as if all is trying to dole single backflip And it was. So you're thinking then swing arm triple clamps is basically the one of the major things to to make that happen year for. I mean for me the goto you can. Do you know reasonably easy. And it's not a major like that That's auto started rawdon again. Knox because i wanted to just because i. I didn't have the pots from other black tuneup and time. So i was very to today but i'm very glad i did as much fun to ride it so easy. Nearly nearly to the extent Once started on takeoff wants to do what. What what you tell it to. So that's pretty cool but at some another thing that with the double flips which upset to people before. But i don't think they quite dross. What i'm saying is the powder delivery of a k. Team to fifty as it just seems to be perfect for double flips. The very toki midas. They can guy from walking speed of wide open throttle on the spice of acerbic kicker. In seeking Yeah because i've been talking to people over the last couple of years just trying to help. Whoever you know. W whatever. And i started to not learn that people were on the yamahas motives. A topping based said that real toki. And that's where a lot of your rotation comes from the acceleration in the toolkit on takeoff when When i was leaning double flips Anyone could had done them just to try and pick up any better advice. Came shaney us gonna camera openly Trying to pick up things understanding too much but he would've known and one thing that point in time machine came with by the guys during the beast in the mice consistent so i was trying to understand what they're doing but I was. I was picking up more from came. Because he's rodney stark and he. What hey stayed was a hit. His interest very high. And you need a blip it off the top. And now when i saw to do that because it was in my early days at just didn't help me one and it took me a long time. It took me until i started talking to tucker about double flips. That i was trying to take some mighty but it didn't work for him and i couldn't figure it out and then stone someone else have another site in the in. The i started to understand. The power of the yemen was a low different said. It had a lot to do it. But probably by john but not not love each gallon. As i've said it to people before. But i think i just think i'm preaching katie ridden for them for so long but i genuinely think The beast is modes traced this. If i could have found a bit of but i would have gone A sponsorship is is very good in. The support is very good but i always chased performance. I've anything at by pots are getting free ones. That i didn't think with good sir. In the united i had very little support from katie huge support from katie. Mainly but from aftermarket parts or anything. I never done any of those avenues because a locked you into something that potentially wasn't helping you performance. So that's where i was going with their fair coal I the reason. I changed from gamma ha to. Kcm was near on what you've said but definitely not to that level I always had not always but most of my box where yamahas and always rawdon was shui a lot and of course everybody when you talk about k. Tim so that people ten years ago or fifteen years ago like are they just you know they cost too much blah blah blah and remember one day. Well it was because my bike was living at shula's place and it was always dripping that little bit of oil out of the Pal velva floor and it was always dripping two or three drops off to every rod shoe was getting the sheets and he's like if i call. Katie 'em right now And they can give you some sort of deal. Will you please you a bike and take this. Ktm although i will. I'll have a rod of yours. And i only it on the track. Didn't jump a ramp with it or anything but we will just rodney the track next his garage the and as soon as a went from the wiser to the ktm fifty to strike also holy shit. This is just on a completely other level. Of course my yamaha was a piece of crap and my in china but and he had a factory yemenis. Sorry finicky with everything but you could just feel like a stride. awhile. I could feel how toll he was. Yeah i will if you can go okay. Gm and they're going to help me with a bike. I'll take it and if it's good also syllabus are whatever and as soon as it came i said my box will always bogged stock. I never changed anything. Because if i'm traveling i just knew i could turn off and ride the same bike heart flay. It's better than the one. I've got an arm And it was always good. Sorry that's yeah. I'm completely with you on that. One i did. This is what two thousand eighteen stand with mason than we we riding bikes. But we not rotting at in vegas and Mcenroe day we swap box to jump on the rents and has was has is pretty trek Usa take good care of it. He had older coast on a very nice by but price leads them. Also but it was. It was nice but it just like what you say that neither Rotting stall in any of us since niebuhr even not that. I a look back anyway but it just didn't suit me. I can pick up down there. Yeah this is again. Maybe my hazy memory you routing three hundred for awhile. I'm guessing off and on or am i wrong no sacred. Oh just the pins on the tracks really. I just picked and chose three. The three hundred was just puglia top very simple to swap it in an advance but they they would talk to you but they have out as much now. not much. Different topping was much the same that they just didn't quite revere as much. Just be just pick and choose of into event what i would want anywhere altitude a check to three hundred on and sign that the last year in two thousand seventeen I didn't i just run a two fifty Even at like altitude salt lake city which is not real crazy but it still enough. I just Microphone cheating and all that in. It seems very well but yet you apply some sto sto have them here probably still use them in the future. But just a pains what kinda what. Treacle what what. You're trying to shave really. We just Traveling with the gay bagging. You just have a A to fifty three hundred kit in your bag and you just chose when you got there or did you plan that all it was all preplanned wherever we mean i think i took for them anyway but would would always do research would be arc rotting. You know what's what's the temperature humidity altitude. What's a fuel that we can get In obviously all of the Things i mentioned would dictate what fuel we would use from there Be no way would go out and buy a unfil- or do whatever we could would never rely on any of the stuff for that. And that i mean probably part of the reason my voice and sign that that was a little it was gave gosling with looking after my black. You're not hate young with that stuff very organized that any took took a lot of kieran it so we always we always good success with the bucks it up which was which was nice but the low preparation you. Let's that's interesting too he. That's definitely cool Just thinking as as a rider you get that cold to guide on event and Your by plying tickets. You go to buy whatever you've got to check the the humidity you gotta check the altitude and the temperatures and things like that saw. It's interesting to hear that you're doing that dr. How many of the other guys do it up. That's good too he. I guess you've already kind of answered this now. So it's probably pointless asking. But i had written down. What about going to the five to start all with how. Ktm has dropped so much white out of their full fifties like outta their stock bikes and saw all's just wondering why with your white savings that you've got throughout the bike. What if you had a five hundred in the Would that help or would it. Even maybe he nba. Because i know jacko is gonna pantera. Five hundred he's put some out bracingly and can't wait to see what he does with the from your point of view. Five hundred good audio. You're not really interested in in a main seated. Heavens purpose one day someone award or something and now run out of power forever. I've gotten they might need to talk of it and periodically weekly As fires would say what. I'm doing i have a need for. It'll the yet it's gonna add some white and were that stuff but it really depends like i mean the first thing i can think of would be the remnant. Harry's would be would suit a five hundred because you that's a massive ramp. it's probably a third gig of of but maybe that means that it's a five hundred I don't know never jumped five hundred and freestyle united. Said i didn't even know if these appear as for it but i'm sure they will be at some stage but probably be one often. It's not gonna sued a lot of like general freestyle riding in my opinion without. Yeah me wrong for sure. Four fifty Now blow to paperweight. Wanna hear this my personal opinion with how offered him bikes and from our experience. I believe the full structure very limiting. Not saying that. You can't do more than what's being done. I think they they don't they. Don't fight with where i see the box going or the rotting going I think a lot of a lot of the full fifty cries came about Sharks with of fizzling out as far as technology guys Teams and then. I mean fifty for good six months some once Struck in all i noticed was i started riding bitter because it was china. It was something different than i had written before. And i think that said like that big wave that we are able rodney's full strikes. Everyone got why bitter. So we jump on the bandwagon and men on a four-stroke students staged but i think a lot of it was just for people in in in in sometimes any good change. It just revitalizes you now. Like i said that's just my opinion as probably gonna annoy some. It's not fit in someone's gonna prove me wrong always does so. This is the way it goes. Yeah novel actually. I was the same. I think i don't know what it was. But basically blow low up one of my two fifties and rebuilt it and everything. And now i just sold it i'll just rv because that blackout i- thrashed. It allows ira. Just get rid of it and i knew those three months until the new model was coming out from. Ktm so had three months to kind of just kill strongest. sell shany's Hundred four fifty at the time that must have been. I think it was a twenty twelve model and i just asked him a lot of. I'm trying to sell this thing for is just sitting in my garage. Bought off just sold moen demand. If i rod jewels just just say what it feels like for the next couple of months is i a guy for but if someone wants the boy it makes you get get the money for it. So yeah i. I wrote shany's full fifty for three months and i didn't flip it because i'll still only very fresh to landing the flip to dirt. But i did all my opera tricks on it and every opera trick audited was better on that full fifty than on ever done before and when the guys from. Ktm strategy coleman said all the new models in rodney full fifty What do you wanna do to fifty or four fills and always on the farm tossing it up as all's token to two fifty four fifty. Ya not just. Send me the to start i nor the to strike and i call in had that feeling as well like i knew just because i had changed had that three months of change and and everything was exciting in all divided. That's probably what wasn't had to learn was a completely different bike to ride Are probably learn more about the actual tricks rather than the bike made me do it. I had to think about every trick. I had to hold a rock-solid differently. I had to do a rule of differently and as soon as that to to fifty two strike came in the brand new on jumped on it stride. A y every trick was so much better again. And i think it's because i had that motivation. I had that learning tom. Sorry yeah On with you on that. I i love the full fifty. I love the fact that it it made me think bought didn't serve me and plus i couldn't land on the landing retirement deep. I didn't even touch the damn land. Look oh it's also flat like a bullet shany's full fifty. After that they would be doing folks seals straightaway jawed. Yes so i think. Well there's there's a couple of questions from moscow at and i wanna get into the. Obviously we've talked about the bike and you made a lot of changes in the fuel tank. Which looks really cool. And but your changes what. You said so far surf completely. Different buffo for the guys who aren't neier What's the difference between your bike and tom pages White reducing black can't Audit of saying the book is a job with it is it was the first one to go down the down that pass which kinda worked me up to it But i mean be stuff. I don't know about tom's bought. But i've had a few looks. The is the concent- stuff. And and i think the wasn't much now. I could be very wrong with louis. But this just from my understanding of looking at it and and i do look at things very closely when it comes to Any anyone acetate because you got so much to learn from other people you know as i noticed has bike with sit up like a low a tank which was i think was based around his flew. hit obviously a lot of light applied pots. He'd lost a lot of weight Which is things didn't notice any sort of tree changes in the bike as well as the was you know those comfortable pots and stuff. But i think the main difference between Probably mine was built in my workshop and must've stuff you could potentially by tons will have manufactured down that way but i think that that that the similar in the sense that both highly modified but i think they're designed for two different things fickle faecal. How much do you the white savings when you're riding light. What what is it. Is it eighty nine. And a half what i read the other day. Yes eight nine point. Five kilos we re rod people asking for jar dry right a dry white. I've no idea why you want to know. Draw away for because you dry. It means nothing and the the the balance on the bike was nearly bang on fifty percent front and ria. So that took me took me quite a bit take. She negotiate getting that spot on which helps a lot but yet point. Five weet Luck i see like aeneas stock bought which is about one hundred kilos are ninety nine kilos. Which but it's got geometry. China's net rods very well so when we when people talk about white savings at really really depends you could save twenty kilos on a but you could save that in the wrong position in. That doesn't change performance a heck of a lot. It's nice and easy to put on the stand but at some. Yeah so it just really depends we. The white has waltzes fraught wheel at fromm as unsparing as sprang way And as a as a within your motor as reducing drag on the motor that sorts of stuff like that so that's a bit lost but Do not it's the white and my black law. f- was within sudanese areas. Changing i two or three hundred grams. I could feel it. I'm doing what so flattens. Times when i was building that because obviously i'd build and abroad not vote at ride sought I was doing one thing at a time front to reeb middle bit. Whatever if i'd lost much white on the front versus the beck would throw that out on the ear at flip in it. Would it'd be luck unbalanced. Wheel actually have to position depending on where the white fence was. y- you notice a ton of it. It's way there's not actually my my main focus when it comes to designing freestyle boxes. The white is always the easiest white erie. Think needs to be to work. But you know you don't want it too much of it but these more important things than that black designed in just the white. Well then i suppose. Publish avoided that question. But do you notice the changes you've made. And how do you notice like which in which aspect with is it with specific trixie like you really notice on whips obviously double flips with about them a lot and flips by. Let's psi whips. All any like is really big things that you've really noticed that you could not possibly go back to a stop back on jemma tree a swing swim triple clamps for sure which is i mean explains that i pulled this back out after not planning terada again because i didn't have the new parts from waibel heck sauce on rodney stock. Stockwell is no way. You're right so these that they make a big difference Obviously the steering state stabilized. That's more of a comfort thing a. You're not going to be able to do anything more on the spot. Because of the performance they stabilize. But it's just very nice. That's all i really like that In the powell like how the mode is being chained over the years of of change things whether it's links link of exhaust not a lot just fine tuning. Its most of the stuff at apply with the muslim muffling. The dick caught in just the In the he likes quit. ups are the squish. so either i did all As well as the beating now Huge china's but at might be. You know sometimes i might be always would beg. China's went out. it was losing track. Because when you're learning it you need a lot of help you know. Yeah you don't know what you don't need all the advantage you can get as you've learned to get more comfortable you can actually turn your back to a general to a general. Sit up so i'll do that quite often With it was mean that. I i wanted to lane it up because i say for a forty five foot double khanna want a little bit more response on a landed adult Chain my caught a little bit that maybe around a short. But the for the seventy five foot ramps the blackwood. Four live at before it off. The top of the ramp is in the palca. Rich of dalvin give it a little bit more cotton's in law the heat a little bit more guys just little things like that now. I wasn't doing the whole time. Just a as as unaided too but Yeah so answering you question. Yeah i did notice the chinese And sometimes on notice changes in they went bits audit to go back to it. You know for as much as i've known that walker would have done just as much chance to you know signing. yeah fickle. Can you use these parts that you've made for rising. What do you think. There's a market there as well on our way. That could be terrible on a track just different like just awesome to be not really none of the none of If that it would potentially be very good for endure also farrah's suspension it up as an copy valve in just with the body balance the white. Yeah i think. I don't roddenbury across from sitting back watching okay. We'll anything's gonna be suitable for block of potentially would be that but insane like it's the spike is obsolete. As far as what i say. Now i'm this is all part of the reason why decided that audit showed off now bitter shower off now otherwise it will be forgotten about exactly work. That's going to do it. And so. I'm guessing you've gotta you've got a two thousand and twenty one or twenty twenty there that you've been tinkering with year. You sobbing working flat out this last year. Canada starting to come out of the dungeon now the office on the downside of the pro downside but on the dan hopes. Slut room coming zine Should hopefully be finished next couple months that some law spain the less full year really thought. Al i can't wait to say it all good. Actually a couple of questions Fraum one of the listeners. The clock williams who's also koa Bodies a high school teacher And he's not too bad of photography and he loves free cell so apparently a got into some x. games got some photography accreditation to get in there. But he wanted to know a lot more. And i didn't even know what the hell he was talking about when he sent these questions through with the the engineering saw things. I'm just gonna shoot the questions that he asked. You can answer them. Because when we get to engineering i of go to stick welder and i can put some chicken shit welds on ramp In our up a few things. But the i'm not to to you there so yeah no. I'm stoked the clock actually sent some questions. Sorry foia I guess we'll start simple. He said when designing new pods. How universal can you make them So for example you swing on. Does this need to be modified for all brands and years of bikes. Of course that would have to be. You'd have to modify something completely universal but is that an idea is is that way you'll headed fool creating these pots. Everyone for all different blacks. You The the the concept in the designs A universal the parts. I mean the design of the pots as diffley. Not age box different. But it's a very it's do you. Just go through the process redesign at the moment. I have a kit k. Teams advocate for yamahas. Full sable future. I don't plan to mightn't for other box because it goes back to hit a few people asked me to make stuff before strikes but my very fish thing. I say that he knew on the asked me about sydney bica. As what are they rod. And if it's if the like i seek consent very biased but i honestly think the k. Teams abyss just out the box ready to go for fray style. Tell them go by. Kt mr rodney. how Beata likewise full start purely yet you can make h black rod. Look bitta but it's not at the base came bay to begin with if if you're only making slightly bitter of bainbridge or you could get signed there's very good in the excellent in my opinion but Going back to what else. I-in is oh. God yamaha in ktm pots at the moment. And for now. I don't plan to mike other ones because of what i see. I think if you if you very serious indian food affray style. I think the steep as in my opinion now it could be completely wrong limp as to guide anthrax and that's where we're But yeah that's kind of weird sudden not very universal. But it's it's not hard for me to for the concept on anybody really okay Helbig is your market. How many right is need center of mass modifications for double and triple flips. I think you've already answered this question before bought. It was one of clocks Questions very is your market. I guess it's very limited. I think is fires like business goes. It's it's it's purely a hobby. I enjoy doing so like mazal selfie. On the way i don't plan to get ripped for making i auto parts but in so fun i enjoy it. Goes doing it anyway. And that's one of the things. When i stopped doesn't mean what am i gonna do with blacks like what am i going to do day anyway since the really have the nature just enjoy doing it so much so think it's big mac. I think there's room to grow once people. I think once people experience it they may understand what i'm talking about a but more and maybe it will go through the from the but Like i said just a hobie familiar. The moment in order to see where it goes coal. Do you have an which is your most used for me i go. Cnc light a mill normal life fabrication gear and all the rest of it but as far as the pots i sell outsource machining on the. I don't the reason for that is done. Plan to be a library in the workshop model off at a really where can enable the working for an alley right and it's not scalable for me to be able to do it. That's why outsource And that's royal night us. All of my putts are either fully scenes with three d. printed Have lot of grass on the quality control if these of fabrication always do that myself but Yeah and sign it so swing one pace A simulated a number of times. I trust lay yum the strength of the material. And i know that if it's being machined with the curriculum Support of designed it for so. That's kind of gone down the avenue but the us is going back to the scene. Say working kai just skyla can go one pot a month for fifteen parts you know so owned by the cape out for by myself. The i k will that santa fe few of the questions in the. It's going to be the same then So he wanted to know bail titanium And everything like that. But i guess then yet your designing basically is what i'm getting here your designing it and you send it out to to the people who have the right machines then just to create oil and send it back is that right. Yes vote for for any bill. Work with thirty printing and mito No three d. printing cabin do all mine Kaban layup and all the welding so Sometimes united off projects that i've been doing this year. Actually i'll use a little bit of everything done a project Where you've seen say were thirty. Printing used With just general binding orem cutting stuff out of would've ending welding it altogether so also stuff that but not the oldest siegburg so at a house. Maybe one day all be done in house. But i wanna go down the avenue fair enough one other question he goes. I didn't actually Researchers wanted even know what he was asking sar artfully dr us fusion three sixty or something else and does parametric modeling and its design history. Help with modifying pods for different bike. So do you design h from scratch right there. He lost me on. Probably do you use and all was lost and we got an answer that i fought followed him very closely on that. You're not used Fusion three sixty works perfectly for nate Follow the history with some pots overlay ova but generally starts scratched for age. New typically because reengineer Work to the loads and it's always she very similar Pot two pot doesn't vary too much but destroying cape a specific to h h bike or each potter. Making say inside of blinks. Like when i have designed probably two dozen triple clamps this year so far have you know of all the standard designs and my computer is a as a blank. That are just throw into his on. And i'll stop from the. It doesn't end up anywhere close to it but you just referenced. It goes fast as well as a three d. scanner. everything before i make any pat. Just trust speed the process up so they skeins of are probably got a full catalog of complete katie to fifty in the Half fifty in the earn all sorts of stuff that that's gone how that process goes h times slightly different much muchness. Well i would. I would say. I've learnt something. But i probably haven't donald fusion three sixty s. But i get the idea at least it. Sounds like you're doing it all from scratch in this. I mean the cool thing was So i've been talking with clock actually since he sent some of these questions in and he's actually an art teacher and he's a think they said he was Involved in setting up a new school and sorry they brought in a whole bunch of cnc machines. And whatever else. And i'll just thinking like i grew up on a dairy farm Some old man was a dairy farm. Body was also an engineer So we had lathes and milling machines and welders and more than enough steel. That i could just go. Mike ramp whenever i wanted But at high school shop. Be an an shall. I like the metalworking and woodworking. That would just just so boring and it never got me interested. But then when i was talking to clock. And he's he's yeah we've we've got all this new technology and i'm just thinking may imagine if if i had that when i was young and imagine what kids would be able to do if they've got these kind of tools that you're using right now as well Yeah hopefully it. It breeds more creativity. And maybe we say a lot more of this coming through in the next couple of years year for sure. I mean with the software. Now that it's much easier to them and more affordable get hands on like. I mean i've been interested in engineering. My whole lifts go to be an engineer. Didn't quite make it that far. But so i've always worked with my hands i. I learned a long way by learning welding. Machining will stuff just manually In in the last two years it started on the computer and sign. That probably wouldn't change it because if you have an understanding of actually weakens toes it helps you designing but what you can choose achieve through the computers. Welby on what you can by done by hand united. So that's that. But they were talking about half the time. That was a hand feb that was full back yard engineering whereas the new stuff actually still self taught back yard guy but at some on a different level just purely because i can actually i have access to all sorts of different tolls now annexes. Two other other people's workshops essentially to be out of scarlet of quite often picked up. The computer stuff was rotting. This could have made and got done and still hit the time to go and ride every day then could have gone through the. I mean i needed to go through stuff. I did learn and get to where i am. Now soden changes thing but the concern concerned. I've got some awesome tolls outliers even to the extent of just a cheap plastic three d. printer for modeling stuff in and chicken. Your chicken you designs on as it's pretty coleman is some coast to be done. Have you got any tips for kids out there thinking to get into this sort of thing like what what should they be doing getting the plastics ready printer by the sounds of it. I mean any other advice advice. I dunno and i think karma what we talked about. Download a free version of any sort of kids off. We must people going to fusion. There's a few f revision of that works very well thirty rental. You talked about in jump on youtube man. How much to learn off the always go myself. A youtube apprentice. Because i've learned anything just gonna get equipment jumping daping file somewhere along the lines fund the roth advice and then go from there Living in age we don't necessarily need to Study will will go into soon. Scola whatever to Things obviously you do for certain qualifications or whatever This is a lot to be learned at sort of it. Now which opening up a lot of opportunities. I think absolutely completely agree with you. Spent six and a half years at university donna. How much of that all us really even made it to the in the high school. But i don't remember a thing of it. That's the thing yeah youtube. Does everything these days. Sorry yeah i'm with you on that. So i guess to wrap things up Before we started. You said your bet you're either gonna do some work today or you're gonna just pack it all in god for mountain biker. Awed what are you. What are you doing these days. What is a regular day fillet varsha other than this new project. is a mountain bikes to get out and have a bit of fun. What else what are you up to Honestly it's mostly designed. I mean their student days. Roses sixteen thousand nine hundred dollars every day on the computer that this lost for a few months of Summit she'd been pretty crazy with it. I'll do the work. I have to go mountain rotting. Go the pub duda. This is still a lot of things to be done. But just conisidered I think i'm starting to see len To to the not not like riding proficient kind of thing issues throughout chosen and dobalina Just realizing these still now. There's another day tomorrow is to be done to marina. Say try to achieve something one. Wanna take things a day long decent got enjoy the rest of it. I sign that. You know. Like i said started by long house when i have to. I've got to get done but by dying i'll be amenable doing science fun. Happy dies thanks. Very much for for joining us might olson to have yeah and Those hopefully more people have learned about engineering than i have But i really did want to pick your brain about Yeah ramps and bikes. And and all that sorta stuff. Thanks very much for jumping on. Thanks for having me. It's good to catch up. Like greece has been very long time. So you're not appreciate appreciate appreciate the opportunity wolf guy. There were few surprises in there. But i hugged you. Enjoyed this interview with levi and found some things to take away. It's great to hear him sounding relaxed after a career of pushing the limits and i also caught white to see what in the world he comes up with. Next as i mentioned in the middle levi did do an interview with fellow kiwi and a bit of a mountain by hacker as well simon mce for the latest eighty bay magazine which is either aetna hours in the very near future. And i'm sure there are many more photos in the magazine and more in depth coverage of the process that went behind this old new bike. That lay has been working on so grab your copy of the magazine to find out more. Actually smack of was my boss when he was the editor of free a magazine and all's writing monthly columns in some stories there and a lot of by tests and everything else and actually it was smack. A who was the guy in the middle to take my idea of writing a book on freestyle motocross on how to do tricks how to get into the sport and whatever else y back in two thousand eight and he managed to get the publisher on board and it was called the ultimate guide to freestyle. So i worked with him on that one although he did screw me a little bit. I wrote the book audit all the hard work all he needed to do put. Some fight is together and get it printed. It's not that hard and hannity screamy. Well he put a fight off. Steve many on the cover and i'm like okay. Thanks so i'm still a little bit salty about that. But after how many nuts a did manage to beat him in. I think every game from memory. So i took a fair chunk of money from the poet so it all kind of even out in the end. I can't wait to get back home to australia. Actually do some more of those poconos because they were awesome. Had some guys over this in gaza red bull ad chigney there as well now so much fun but i can't wait to get back harm and actually doing it. With some roadhouse beer instead of my old harm. Bruce which will be much better and if you missed it at the top of the episode there is a chance for you to win your own freebie from wrought house in the form of a mini keg and some very nice.

Instagram follow it and wrought house and tag a friend. It's simple angie can win. Ideally if you love the podcast and if you think you know someone who should be listening to it it would just be awesome spread the would and if you can win some freebie with zero effort than it just makes it all the mall swayed up so thanks very much for tuning in. It was awesome to have you here to listen to this. Very special episode with levi. Show would and keep your eyes peeled for the next episodes. I've got some very interesting characters coming up soon. I'm not gonna give it all away right now. But i'm pretty damn pumps all right catch you later.

Scott Kelly Lessons Learned from 500+ Days in Space, Life-Changing Books, and The Art of Making Hard Choices (#478)

"Hello boys and girls ladies and germs. Tim ferriss and welcome to the tim. Ferriss show where it is. My job to deconstruct world class performers of all different types to tease out the habits routines favorite books. Who knows what that you can hopefully emulate or apply in your own lives. My guest today is none other than scott. Kelly at station cd r kelly on twitter and elsewhere scott. A former military fighter pilot test pilot and engineer a retired astronaut and retired. Us navy captain a veteran of four space flights. Kelly commanded the international space station. I s on three. Expeditions was a member of the year. Long mission aboard the iss the single longest space mission by american astronaut in october. Two thousand fifteen. He set the american record for the total accumulated number of days spent in space go for launch how to dream lead achieve is kelly's two our audio course available exclusively on knowable in this candidate entertaining audio course. Scott shares instructor story from childhood new jersey his days as a us navy test pilot and his year hurtling around the globe.

You can find him on social twitter instagram facebook at station cd r kelly and before we jump into the interview. I want to play you. One lesson from scott's audio course the lesson is titled the smartest person on the mission and it really highlights decision making under pressure a superpower of his the interview ends. I'll share to more of scott's lessons so be sure to stick around sometimes in space. You get a call from third grade classroom. That wants to see what it looks like to go to the bathroom in zero gravity. Other times you get a call from mission control saying there's a hole the size of golf ball in a heat shield and you might burn up on reentry. I got that call day or so into commanding. My first and only space shuttle mission a similar issue had killed seven of my colleagues on columbia a few years earlier. We could do a spacewalk to try to repair the heat. Shield but spacewalks are extremely risky on their own and there was always a danger. We could jus- damage the heat. Shield more while trying to fix it but if we left the whole as it was the heat of reentry might tear the space shuttle apart as commander. I had a lot of say. In what our approach was. Going to be would have been tempting to make a quick decision on my own. But over the years. I've spent leading and following. I've learned that the best decisions are made that way. Instead i found a good time to take each crewmember aside one by one in private i kept picture of the heat. Shield damage and print out of some analysis from the ground in my back pocket. So i'd be able to take advantage of a quiet moment. I made sure. I spoke to each of my crew members individually to get their honest opinions. I took this to such an extreme. That i asked everyone i could. I haven't asked the astronauts and russian cosmonauts who weren't coming back with us on endeavor. Why not call a meeting. Why not make a decision together as a group well. I've seen what can happen. When people try to make decisions and groups one person will offer an opinion and if that person is knowledgeable or well respected. Everyone else might go along with what they said. Group thinks sets in people aren't even conscious of doing this sometimes. It's something we do as a social species to along and it's often a useful instinct but in a case like this it could be deadly. There's a sign on the wall and a meeting room at nasa. None of us is as dumb as all of us. And it's less. Nasa had to learn the hard way it's part of what went wrong with the columbia accident and with challenger before it people who raise concerns were silenced because group think had taken over with the input my crew and after thorough analysis decided along with flight controllers and leadership on the ground. That coming back with the hole in the heat shield posed less of a risk than attempting to repair right mainland. The the gouge goes pretty much through the entire thickness of the tile itself is one point two inches thick. We fired the deorbit engines. And as we came out of darkness and started hitting the atmosphere. The plasma 'field the fire outside the space shuttle continued to build pretty soon. We were in a three thousand degree. Fireball falling towards earth senate. Incredible speed me and my entire crew were mostly silent as we approach the point. Where the space shuttle columbia had come apart as we transition through that altitude. My pilots scorch said passing through peaky understand. I replied i let about twenty seconds. Go by headed. Looks like we dodged that bullet as we all reflected on the loss of her seven colleagues dot thirty minutes later we landed safely at the kennedy space center in florida. But this kind of decision making can help. And other places to places like a level one trauma center in tucson arizona when my sister-in-law congresswoman gabrielle giffords was shot in two thousand and eleven. I was in space halfway through a six month mission. My brother mark was constantly having to make difficult decisions about her care. He found himself in meetings. With many of her caretakers trauma surgeons brain surgeons neurologists but instead of just hearing out the top doctor or more experienced expert. Mark would go a step further. He would find one quiet person in the back of the room and ask them who they were. I'm just an intern. They might say or. I'm just a nurse but mark didn't care what the person's training was. What do you think he would ask. What are we missing. What are we overlooking. Even if they hadn't been there long their opinion mattered and he learned valuable information by gathering as many perspectives as he could. I learned as much as seeing from how he handled. Gaby's care as i did from anyone. I flew with in space. The smartest person in the room. I've learned is usually the person who knows how to tap into the intelligence of every person in the room.

I can flat star shaped your question. No it does seem like a cybernetic organism living tissue to route scott. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. And i wanted to start out with space but with west orange new jersey in the sixties and your mom specifically. Could you please speak to your mom's experience with joining the police force. Well let's say that's a good place to start with my mom because we all started with our moms and really this happen kind of in the late seventies in throughout the eighties. Where by dad was a cop in new jersey and he was in my hometown of westerns. He's one of those. Like stereotypical irish cop guys. You see on. Tv mother was a secretary in a waitress. Various job she had at different times and about the time. My brother and i were becoming teenagers when she could spend more time at work. She decided that she wanted to have a career like my father was going to attempt to become a police officer in in our hometown. That never had a female police officer before at the time. They're very few in the state of new jersey in it was a challenging for especially the physical part of it. Because you know at that time it was. Physical fitness tests was really designed for the men that were trying to become. You know policemen and firefighters civil service exams. That included physical fitness portion. It was a challenge that for her was not easy. But you know. I saw her work really really hard at this. And you know my dad helped her by set up this obstacle course in our backyard. And you know when i went out there. She was not very successful in a little bit skeptical. I can remember thinking. Is she going to really be able to do this. But she She had a goal that she wanted to achieve a plan to get there and the she was successful and it was the first time in my life that i i saw the The power of having this goal. You think you might not be able to achieve a plan to get there and then working really really hard at something. I always wanted to thank my mom forgiving. That lesson to me and my brother mark. Is it true that the family or she built a mockup wall in the backyard to practice climbing over in preparation for the police exam. Like i was saying dad helped ernie built the whole all the activity. She would have to do in our in our backyard including a wall. That was seven foot four inches tall. He actually built it an inch taller without telling her so she thought he was practicing on a. You know a seven foot four inch wall and she was acting on one. That was an inch taller. My dad thinking might help her on the on the real day when she had the scale this thing that she would be overly prepared. Yeah the first time. She went to climb over that she probably got our foot foot high and fell off. L. back into the dirt. But i can remember picking herself up. You know brushing herself off. Just saying i'm going to just try to touch the top for now and then you know once i do that i'll see how long i can hold on for. Maybe someday eventually i'll be able to pull up in quite possibly at the end of the summer. Perhaps be able to get over this wall. You know some of the other tests was she had to drag a hundred and thirty pound dummy a hundred feet and we just happened to have a long backyard. I happen to at the time way. One hundred and thirty pounds mental also fit the role as a dummy. As i wasn't particularly good at school so yes so with my helper in the summer of really hard work on her part and when she went to to take that test actually did better than a lot of the men didn't became the first female police officer my hometown. Where i in the entire state. She was off to the races. You you just mentioned school. And that's that's where i wanna go next. I think that many people listening have a certain. I suppose archetypal narrative that they would impose on astronauts in terms of life story and they see star students not out of the park knowing from the age of three they want to be in space etc. You mentioned you weren't necessarily the best in school. My understanding is graduated in the bottom half of your high school class and had various sort of misadventures along the way what happened in terms of course correction if there was a particular course correction it was their point which you learn to study was there a catalyzing event for you. That reoriented your focus. Yes so you know. Most people would would think as an astronaut. You must've been the smartest guy in the class. The overachiever and that is certainly the case with a lot of my colleagues. I mean i know folks at a. I've worked with that. Sonia l- armstrong walk on the moon when they were little kids and decided right than in there. That's what they were going to do. And they did the best at everything from there on out until they became an astronaut. Who's was flying. Were flying in space. Which is great. I wish i could have done that. I think it's kind of a boring story though. I think it's much more interesting when it's someone like me you couldn't pay attention in school. Spent probably the first thirteen years of my education staring out the window winning. When is this going to be over. So i can get out of here and it was felt like it was impossible for me when i was a kid to pay attention. Not like i didn't want to. I always went into the new school year with the intention of doing well and three days into school. I three days behind and then the rest of the year was just basically on autopilot. Not really learning much not paying attention. A whole lot. Not getting good grades. I think back then. It seemed like it was easier to do that than i think what. I've noticed with my kids today. I don't think he'd be able to get away with the amount of effort. I put in then but i just remember it being impossible for me to pay attention. Basically having the feeling that if you would have held a gun to my head to force me pay attention. I wouldn't have been able to do it. That's how i and i think i probably have like. Add or adhd never diagnosed. So that's probably why. I had such a hard time and it wasn't until i got to college and i was still still struggling. Didn't know how to study really didn't do well eventually. I'm not even going to class anymore. or at least much basically you know on a fast track of how a lot of kids experience your first year college Basically one and done you know one year and you're done. I was just walking across the college. Campus just happened to walk into the bookstore Not by book was probably going there to buy gum or some other non educational related thing. Maybe beer there. I don't know who knows. But i i remember seeing this book on the end of the aisle you know where they highlight the stuff that they're trying to sell the scholastic the end cap or something of of a shell thin now. There's this book that had this free patriotic rim late and blue cover a cool title caught. My eye made me pick it up. Wasn't a big reader at the time. So it's gonna unusual for me to actually buy a book like that then in the in back founded interesting look through the first pages took my gun money or my beer money or whatever was in the off. The book walked back to my dorm room. And then Opened it up and basically didn't get outta my bed for the next few days just reading. The stories of the fighter pilots military fighter pilots and test pilots that became the original mercury gemini and apollo astronauts in. The book was the right stuff by tom. Wolfe is something in. That book just really sparked my imagination. I think it's probably partly is a creative nonfiction writing style. That was just really caught. My attention and my imagination was the fact that i felt like i could relate to the people in the book. The guys that were the us writing about it. We're all guys at the time not anymore. Obviously a lot of female astronauts now but back then there was only in felt like i had something in common with them and with regards to like risk-taking and putting myself in and risky situations You know the adventure of it really spoke to me. But then i realized i am not a good student. And these guys you know. Most of them went to the military service. Academies p conrad wente went to princeton. I mean they were very accomplished. The students before they were pilots. But i thought to myself. You know if i could just fix that one thing about me you know if i could learn how to pay attention and study do better in school. Perhaps i could change. Colleges changed majors become. Get an engineering major. The place i was at wasn't quite working out for me and get a commission in the. Us navy in go fly fighter planes off of aircraft carrier. Maybe become a test pilot may be quite possibly an astronaut someday. So you know that inspiration. I think is important. That's what i tell kids that also. A lot of parents of their kids are struggling. I think you can tell them all you want that. They have to do better but you really have to show them why they need to do better. You know there has to be that thing that inspiration that spark that just provides inspiration to get people moving in the right direction. And that's what tom wolf's Stuff was for me and later you shot him an email from space with a photograph of yourself with that book. If i am getting my facts straight was just such a an incredible full cycle to return to the origin. A and incredible prose writer as you noted just a a wonderful craftsman of of non-fiction what happened. Or what did you change after that inspiration was able because it aligned your academic focus in a way where you are simply choosing courses that were more oriented towards that hath and that is what helped you to then find a different set of vector of of progress. Was it just despite your difficulties with attention. Was it just doubling down because now you had a better reason what changed. Well the me just comment i on you. You mentioning an email. Which is response was so tom wolf like in that he had words in there. That were not really words and outrageous punctuation so you pretty cool numale to get back from him but you know in my case. It wasn't really focusing on like new subjects. That more more in line with being an engineer or pilot because those were really the subjects. I had the most challenge with like math as an example. I wasn't really a great math student or accident wasn't great at anything. But for me wasn't necessarily like a change of coarser like you said a vector doubling it was more than doubling down on the fact that no matter how hard i've tried in the past that didn't work and i just have to try a lot harder to force myself to learn how to learn really was the first challenge of the next year after i read tom's book and i decided that this is what i'm going to do. I yeah. I just had to do it. Kinda brute force method by myself. I think a would have a lot more help diagnose. Add or adhd. You'll be there'd be ways to get support and assistance but for me. Strictly the brute force method like chain myself to my desk. Don't move until i can figure out how to do this. Precalculus problem i remember that being a big struggle with the school i was at but eventually you know like like many things you know what i what i've always found in my career whether it's in the military in the navy flying airplanes whether it's at nasa in that is out good we are when we start something is not related at all to how good we can become at anything. When did you first. And maybe you just had the confidence from the gecko. After eating. toms book was there. Appoint after you chain yourself to the desk you double and triple down with this brute force method. Was there a particular point where you thought to yourself. I can actually do this. I i believe that. I can forge a path that will take me to where i wanna go well. I don't know if confidence is the right word. i don't. i've always felt that kind of like a below average guy performing at an above average level. And i think that's in place to be has if you get too confident. I think you get lazy and you don't once. I figured out what i needed to do. I always felt like. I needed to work harder than other people. Because maybe i didn't have as much natural smart cer- talent or ability so there was never a moment where i ever got confident. There was kind of a turning point in that is from a learning and education perspective in that is eventually i figured out how to study well enough that i was able to change schools. I change majors. I became an engineering major. But now i'm starting my freshman year all over again but still haven't really cracked the code on what it takes. It was coming up on columbus day. I went to school. Cold state. university of new york. Maritime college in the bronx is a college that has a military regimental system. Which i felt like i had to have that so that was the primary reason i went there. The other reason was that was really one of the few places. I could get into such bad grays in my first year. College grades weren't all that great. But i needed that kind of discipline in the i felt like i did my brother who was on a completely different trajectory. Once we went into high school was at the. Us merchant marine academy and asked me a little bit later how we became an opponent. trajectory is. it's actually kind of a funny story. But he was across the river actually a long island sound at the. Us merchant marine academy. He's he was a year wind up a year ahead of me. Because i took that first year mulligan on college we were coming up on columbus day weekend. So it's kind of the beginning of the school year almost and i call my brother up and i say hey. Some of our friends are having a a frat party at rutgers. Some are high school friends. And i was thinking of going there for the whole weekend. You know leave on friday. Come back on. And i called my brothers and you want to go with me. And he's like guess some work to do. I get some tests next week. Then he says abe. Have you had any tests yet. Like a calculus test was my first year calculus. I said now we have one next week at any like immediate like curse stab me yelled at me ends the basically said. What the hell are you doing. I mean you've never been good at this. You have the motivation to like. Change your path in life. And you're thinking about going to a frat party and spending the weekend at a frat house and i go. Yeah well you know the tests at the end of the week. Study on the wanna get back. He says amigos. You should be doing every single problem in every chapter multiple times until you can't stand it anymore because that's what it's gonna take and i remember thinking myself. I'm not too sure. I'm gonna listen to him. I actually really wanted to go to this. Frat party and but i decided he had gotten good grades through high school and was doing very well where he was in college. And i thought well maybe i'll listen to my twin brother after he was yelling and cursing at me on the phone and the yeah i what he said and then at the end of the week i took the test and i got one hundred and then i'm then on. I basically knew what it took to do. Well in that is for me. What has always taken for me is just know as much as you can about anything you're doing and then even if you fall a little bit short you still not gonna fall so far that you're failing or doing poorly. That story also makes me think of someone i know named jersey gregor akis polish born olympic weightlifting champion has a few world records and his expression is easy choices. Hard life hard choices. Easy life so flashing back choosing to do those problems sets three four times instead of going to the frat party and that sort of a seems like a defining example of the hard choice at least the emotionally hard choice. I'd like to ask you about failure. And how you relate to failure that's gonna take a take a left turn. You've spoken a lot about space. This doesn't have to be specific. It could be related to it of course but how has eight. How would you say a failure or a parent's failure has set you up for later. Success in other words. Do you have any favorite failure. In retrospect that in some respect kind of planted the seeds for a greater success later. Well failure is an option. I think it's Something that we all probably experience and hopefully we learned from it and move forward. Certainly my early education was one big failure after another proud of that wish. I could have a do over. Actually one of the greatest regrets of my life in that is sitting in class for thirteen years. Not paying attention you know. Talk about a colossal waste of time. They wish they could add a do over on that. No other failures. That would set me up for success. The first time. I qualified to land net fourteen tomcat on the ship by disqualified. My first landing the hook of the airplane. The town book actually hit the back of the aircraft carrier. The stern you know the part that goes down toward the water. Then i was one in done. A matt sent home. You'll had a stern talking to. I was given an option of actually going to fly a cargo plane. The commanding officer thought will. Maybe that would be easier for me because mike for the ship was so ugly but was given another chance in the you know in this situation i thought to myself. I'd never flown a bigger plane before. Didn't even know if i can do that. But i thought not gonna family something i might as well fail at something that i think i might not be able to do rather than easier because at least this way you kind of know. What your where you stand in like what you're capable of. I always feel like if we're not always moving that bar higher and risking failure then were not really reaching our potential and the people. I've come across to not only at nasa. The military industry are the people that are really successful or people that are willing to take the risk of failing and oftentimes. I'll come across kids or adults that they don't wanna do something because they think they might not be able to do it but what if they are able to. They would never know so to put yourself out there to expose yourself to failure. I think is something that everyone should strive for. Because if they don't they're never gonna be able to see what they could possibly achieve now. Now hopefully the the risk taking i'm talking about is not something that would get you killed. It almost got me kill the number of occasions but yeah hopefully it's not those kind of risks but career risks. You know other kind of risks in putting yourself out there for maybe getting a degree. You don't think you're capable of applying for a job. You think you might not get those kinds of risks or something. I think people should be challenging themselves. Like that all the time it makes me think of this quote from larry. Page co founders of google thought. I'm paraphrasing here. But he often observes that something. It's easy to miss. Is that if you aim really big. It's quite difficult to fail completely now. There are examples Certainly within the context of flying where that does not apply but in a lot of these other areas like mentioned career decisions etc. Even if you fail meaning you don't reach your objective. There could be a lot of carryover benefits that you don't get if you aim really small but let's go back to the f. Fourteen tomcat how faster you moving when you land such plan. I know it's variable. 'cause it's changing as you're on the approach but what's the range of speed as you're my understanding is the f. Fourteen tomcat is about fifty feet wide. And how wide is the aircraft carrier or the landing portion. I'm not sure how why the landing area is but it's not much wider than the airplane. He don't have a whole lot of margin the lands. It depends on the wait. What wait you're landing at. But it's somewhere around one hundred and fifty miles an hour not the fastest landing on the on the ship. You have to land relatively slow. The t thirty eight that we flew at nasa woodland like one hundred seventy nights so the f. fourteens a little bit slower but the thing about the tomcat or any airplane. That's landing on. The ship is not only. Are you trying to land on this. Very small runway but that runway is consistently moving up and down heaving up and down. It's pitching bowed. A stern rolling left to right in. It's moving away from you. Because the deck is angled as ship is going forward so and then sometimes it's dark so you can't really see anything either so it's a pretty challenging. Piloting desk actually is it's harder than landing a those. The space show believe it or not difference with space shuttle is. You're not feeling well you're dizzy. You might be nauseous. You don't have a second chance. in that it's a glider a big glider with very poor flying qualities in. You're only gonna get to do this once or twice in your life. you know. Everyone's watching you so it's a lot a lot of pressure different kind of pressure in the f. Fourteen just a quick thanks to one of our sponsors and we'll be right back to the show. This episode is brought to you by athletic greens. I get asked all the time. What i would take if i could only take one supplement the answer is invariably athletic greens. I've you it as all in nutritional. I recommended it in fact in the four hour body. This is more than ten years ago.

It has multivitamins multi-mineral greens complex probiotics and prebiotics for gut health and immunity formula digestive enzymes adapted jin's and much more. I usually take it once or twice a day just to make sure i've covered my bases if i miss anything. I'm not aware of. Of course i focus on nutrient dense meals to begin with us the basis but athletic greens makes it easy to get a lot of nutrition win. Art readily available from travel packets.

Certainly the right stuff. I've given that the people Shackleton's are lansing's book endurance. Which is a partly where the name of my book endurance comes from because that book about ernest shackleton in his voyage with his crew of endurance. Ship to the dark in the beginning of the last century was really one of the greatest examples of leadership in a very challenging and dangerous environment. That i could ever imagine i mean. It's just extraordinary. What shackleton as the leader of that expedition was able to do when their ship endurance got stuck in the ice eventually crushed and they spent i forget exactly how long but it was almost like two years saving themselves that involved living on ice packs and transit so hundreds and hundreds of miles in lifeboats in the arctic a Crossing of south georgia island in the winter at no one had ever done before but shackleton small team of his guys did that As at the end of them trying to save themselves and he was able to do that. In the no-one died. None of his crew members died. everyone survived. That book is very meaningful for me that i have actually given it to other people hemingway fans early. You know the old man in his favorite in. I'm also looking at the pearl box. The good earth. I think given that book to other people. What is the good earth about. Yeah so it's about the pearl box girder that's brilliant. It's about this guy. Name this farmer in china is peasant farmer that haven't read in a long time but the name was wanlong egos from peasant farmer in survives all these famines and eventually becomes a major landau holder. Really great book credibly well written in a great example of what life was like in that time during china before the revolution and when they had many many years of famine and having massive numbers of people having to migrate as a result. Highly recommended one of my favorites of all time that is a nonfiction or is non-fiction. Let's talk about scientific literacy for npr. That's yep so so. I'm not a scientist. I support a lot of science. I have a basic level of. I would consider it scientific literacy. There is a lot of froth and noise out in the world today. Certainly magnified by social media and so on in many respects. Could you speak to. What happened with respect to steph curry and the moon landing except this may be an entry point. Four discussing how people can develop the greater ability to separate fact from fiction. We'll tell you what. I'm not assigned to see her. Although i do play one on tv occasionally i do other. A lot of people. Think eight year and astronaut. You must be a scientist now. I'm not a scientist. I've i've done a lot of science. I think i'm a science minded person. I know What science is. I know what it isn't end. Unfortunately i think in today's society a lot of people have lost their reality in some ways. Where all of a sudden in our society like science is now opinion or politics. It's not it's subjective. Observation is evidence is experimentation critical analysis. It's pure review. it's always evolving. But it is the truth as we know it at that particular time. The science deniers we have in our society now are dangerous. It's like. I used to kind of goof around with the flatter thor's now i don't even like acknowledge their existence. I probably shouldn't even brought him up. Because i don't believe that they should even be given any kind of acknowledgement because it just so absolutely outrageous. It's like if you're a flatter wanna you just deny that the sun is in the sky. I mean the earth is round. I mean you can go up in an airplane and look out the window and see that it's round you gotta look pretty closely because you're not very high but if you look closely you can see we lived on a curve planet not to mention that you know thousands of years of science as determined that the earth is round and of course i've seen it from space and it is pretty round. It's not flat and if it was flat wouldn't the edge be like the most popular tourist attraction on earth. I would just go set up a taco truck in you know. Make a billion dollars with my You know edge of the earth tacos. Yes so i generally don't give those kind of folks any acknowledgment. Because i just think it's so outrageous. And i know some of them do it. Kind of is a goof and they think is funny or it's cute or whatever some people really believe it the dangerous if you're willing to believe that the earth is flat. What else are you willing to believe that. Vaccines don't work. That we are not living in a pandemic where people by the thousands dying every day through. You know around the world. That change is a hoax. So it's a it's a risky thing you know with regards to steph steph is an awesome guy i think he's a smart guy i think in his situation he just kinda got caught up in one in a thing where he said he disagreed with somebody about the moon landings probably would not even give it a whole lot of slot and then he got a lot of heat for it and i felt bad for him because i like mama fan so i just reached out to my said. Hey you know if you wanna talk about the moon landing. Be happy to share what i know with you. And he was very happy to have that conversation and to take back his what he said about that because in and he he wasn't doing anything malicious he was just kind of grain with a guy. A guy who said that he was kinda onto the next thing but a lot of people gave them a lot of e four. So will talk about. I think he understands now if we look at the spectrum of let's just call it through scientific not scientific thinking but sort of detached level rational skepticism etc the ability to navigate the world into to the best of our ability separate fact from fiction. It does seem to me that there are people out there who are not. Let's just say flatter throughs right were or people who are trying to convince you of god knows what that is just seems clearly at face value ridiculous to the people in the middle. Who really don't know how to best discern what is true and what is not. I think vaccines are great. Example in the sense that i have many friends who i would consider in many many domains to be very smart high performing effective people who do not even know where to begin with vaccines just in terms of claims from friends certainly different sites on the their face friends that are claiming to be expert on stuff. Yeah or they or those facebook friends linked to a site that seems to have citations and they just i mean i will. I will just say like these people i'm talking about. Some of them are not. I do not people. I would consider broadly stupid people at all sue. How can someone who wants to become more discerning and capable in sifting through the noise become better tuned. Do you have any suggestions for how they can cultivate that. Yeah absolutely i mean. I'm not an expert on many many things. The things that i know a lot about things. I don't know a lot of about. But when i don't know about those i asked the rocket. Scientists of whatever that thing is i get my information from trusted sources government agencies. That are the authority on the pandemic like the cc. The world health organization these kind of places media outlets that have been there for a long time and that have a reputation. Not your crazy uncle on facebook. Not people you've never heard of so shocking to me that people will just discount things that are the truth without even trying to go find out. What the real story is just saying. I just don't believe i don't believe that. I don't believe that you don't have to be a scientist to understand science and even if you don't understand it you know. Find the person that's the expert and believed them because they're the experts right. Let's talk about something that you are. I would think very qualified to comment on and that is possible. Future missions to mars. I would love to just hear your thoughts on the feasability or attractiveness of future missions to mars in part because there are many diverging opinions. Here you have for instance you have elon. Musk on one side of the spectrum. You have then also people like jeff bezos who. I believe if publicly said the last thing you want to do is have to deal with gravity and the environment on mars like once you get into space you want to build communities in space as opposed to on another planet for a host of different reasons and if you you mentioned shackleton if you like the idea of being on mars you should try living in antarctica for a few months and then let me know how you feel since that's pretty temperate and forgiving compared to the ecosystem on mars or the climate. At least how would you suggest people think about. Or how do you think about tomorrow's. Yes so you know a few things come to mind you know one one is. I'll quote my brother and give him credit for this because he said it in. That's the only place i've ever heard this. He says going to mars is not about rocket. Science is really about political science. Because you know we know much of what we need to know technically about how to do it but if we're going to really do that some day put people put boots on mars. It's really more about having the money. The political support and the public support is gonna take people to vote in two office. You know science minded people that feel like this is important you know. I do think we can do it. We could probably do it pretty soon. There are some challenges. I think we need better. Life's life support systems. Probably need to be a little bit more robust. We certainly have to protect the crew from radiation whether we have some protective materials or we just get to mars quicker so they're not exposed to radiation for that long but it's something that we're absolutely capable of doing and i think we should do. I don't think though we need to look at mars as a lifeboat for planet earth. Now i say that having been wrong about things that he has said before so you know when he was going to land his first stage of the falcon rocket on a ship and reuse it. My initial thought was. He's crazy but then he went and did it and they did it again and again and again and again so i will never say. He launched crazy again. But i always think it'll be easier to live on earth regardless of what bad thing might happen to it and i also think it's important that we need to recognize that really. This is our home. We need to take care of it. We're not going to move the whole planet mars. I think it's important to go to mars than You know establish a foothold. It's great that we've had a foothold in space coming up on the twenty year anniversary of having people in space continuously so kids that are live today have never been on planet earth with everybody else and. I think we should continue to do that. I think we should go to mars someday. I think we should have. People living on mars. But i don't look at it as a plan. Be necessary as a planet. Be kinda thing. Yeah i do think planet could be pretty well destroyed and and. I don't think we should do that. But it could be and it would still be easier than living on mars living here. What are the most compelling arguments for the importance of getting people to mars or simply asked. Why do you think it is important because it would involve of course very significant costs. Yeah i think going to mars. Is you know it's going to be expensive. But that expense is paid with. The you know very high paying jobs set recently. There was this. Nasa study that talked about the return on investment. So you know. Nasa is a money making prospect in that it generates more tax dollars than it it uses a mission to mars would be the same thing but mister demars develop technologies that we may not have today. Maybe it won't. I don't know it may may not. It'll definitely push the envelope of what we are. Technically capable of doing. I think it would be a great way to cooperate internationally. You know we have a lot of conflict here on earth but we've been flying on that space station with the russians for last twenty years and it gives countries that are sometimes in conflict with each other a place to work on something that is peaceful that benefits everybody. I think that we're explorers. I think it's in our nature dna. I don't think we would have developed to be the species we are today. If we didn't explore. I think it's part of who we are and we should continue to do it and then i think if everything i said was wrong the fact that that kind of mission that going to mars going to the moon the space station the space shuttle the space program in general it inspires kids not only in the united states but around the world to be better students to study math and science and stem careers to be better at those in those areas of study. That are so so important to our economy because all those people all those kids around the world that or so inspired by nasa. They're not going to work for nasa. I mean some of them will but all of them aren't they're going to go into other fields that contribute to our economy our society and our way of life and if that's all we got out of it s worth every penny i mean if the sixers whatever billion dollars we spend a year on human spaceflight if the only thing we got out of that is that kind of inspiration for kids which i don't think it's the only thing we get out of it but if it was worth every cent here here. Thank you for that answer. Let's talk about go for launch. Subtitle had a dream laden. Chief this is your to our audio course on noble why did you produce audio course and what do you hope people will gain from it. I think you know my my life story has a lot of lessons in it that i think will help other people and inspire other people that they can do things that maybe they didn't think they were capable of. They can take risks. They can challenge themselves they can. I'm hoping that people will look at this as a way to find a maybe more success in their own lives. And i've done that with the public speaking i do. I've done it with the books that i've written and this is a new way of reaching a different audience. I didn't really didn't know much about noble before. I was approached to do this but when i learned about it i was like. Hey that's a really good idea. You know people like to listen to books on tape now especially a lot more recently and why not listen to something that is not a book but has a particular lessons From different kinds of people so for those that don't know nobles it's a. It's a new app that gives exclusive audio courses from different types of experts. Chris paul is one of alexis so hanin me a bunch of other people. It's basically kind of like listening to spotify but as for learning something and you know. Hopefully people will learn something that will help in their lives. The audio course. I was able to put together. They can find this course. Unknowable dot f. y. i. forward slash scott. At least that's what. They told me where he can find her. I said that right and Yeah i hope people enjoy it. Some some humor in there. The tele coupler jokes every now. And then i hope people find them funny in the hope they enjoy and will link to that also for everybody in the show notes. That's heavily trafficked at tuned. Up log for slash. Tim's will link to everything including noble. Fyi slash scott for folks. Just maybe two more questions in than we can bring this round one to a close late round one round two. I always want. I like saying around one. We could say this conversation but if it gives you more anxiety that you enjoy could say this is route one of seventeen to the forthcoming indefinite series with scott. Kelly this is. This is the end of the conversation. So i always like say round one was just in case. There's around to amazon right there. When you said understandable understandable to two questions the first is and these are sometimes dead ends. And i'll take the blame if they are but we'll we'll give it a shot so the first is if you could put anything on a gigantic billboard this metaphorically speaking to get a message or a question an image anything out to billions of people. What might you put on that something noncommercial right now. I'd say something like science is real. Believe it yeah sciences. Real believe it. Yeah what world we live in right. You're he added. Yup managing galileo coming or newton coming to this this world now. They would lose their minds. Yeah the i saw a cartoon at the beginning of the pandemic which featured this guy clearly that sort of husband and wife couple and the husband's sitting at his computer and he says honey. It's amazing last week. All my friends on facebook were constitutional lawyers. In this week there epidemiologists search for the signal. Folks all right. The second question is this might seem like a bizarre question. But i'm curious. When is the last time you cried. Tears of joy that you remember. This might be a answer. You're not expecting or weird. But i don't think i ever have maybe ever i don't think so. Here's of joy. Unlike a much of a crier crying and space no crying in space no crying. In baseball people will scott. Is there anything that you would like to say just as closing comments and recommendations or asks of the audience that you would like to add before we close. Well certainly. i think you know having this platform in an opportunity to speak to your viewers is. We're living in some really crazy times right now. And i've had the privilege to see people work in some really challenging environments in things. That are very risky things that you might not even believe is possible and we're able to be successful. Success requires teamwork and i think our country just needs to realize that we just got have to start working together. I mean we can't live in this divided society where people are in conflict with one another because we have some serious challenges in the way you meet those challenges is with teamwork in that has been my experience my whole career nasa and i just wish more people would just kinda come together. Identify problems do it in a thoughtful way believe in science. Solve those problems and move onto the next thing and i'm just very hopeful that we can get there and Hopefully get there soon. Scientists real believe and sa- great place to end with scott. Thank you so much for taking the time today. I know this is a long form conversation. And i appreciate you carving out the time to have a chat and to share your life lessons to answer my sometimes obvious sometimes peculiar or sometimes in the middle questions south. Thank you very much for carving out some space to do this. Hey thanks for having me. Tim a very much enjoyed it. Thank you and to everybody. Listening can find show notes links to everything. We've discussed tim. Doppler forward slash podcast. You can find the noble course at noble dot f. y. fort scott and intellects time. Thanks for tuning in. I'm grateful that throughout my twenty years at nasa had the chance to work with a wide variety of people from different backgrounds. I flew in space with a french. Engineer a schoolteacher from idaho a swiss astrophysicist and more russian cosmonauts and item. Can he spoke different languages. Believe different things problem solved in different ways. And we're trying to do something as challenging as flying in space. You need as many different strengths as you can get. And then i met katie. When i was preparing for my first long duration space i was slated to overlap for a majority of the hundred and fifty nine days with katie coleman. Katie was a military officer in the air. Force a chemist. She was a veteran of two space shuttle missions. Just like me acadian. I were as different as to military officers can be in fact. Some of our colleagues were seriously concerned that we might kill each other for months we would have to cooperate and live together in a space the size of the inside of a seven forty seven filled with stuff so in katie i arrived. I could see why people had been worried. Katie didn't entirely live. Her life by schedules and i would often find her. In the little window. Filled module called the kupa looking at the earth and playing her flute at three o'clock in the morning Throughout the workday i always knew a katie was working on because she would leave experiments and projects have done or there would be scraps and remnants server activities. Just floating around. I used to call it a katy trail but whatever else she needed to do. Katie always made time to speak with people on the ground especially school children even beyond the many events that nasa schedules us for. Hi my name is shake and my question is how highly dispose trash. All the space station schick. You have an excellent question for exactly this week. It is very difficult. we can't just. She made time for art and music. Even playing the first earth space duet on her flute with the founder of the band jethro tull. It was one more aspect of our personalities. That couldn't be more different. I always seen the public relations. Part of my job is a nuisance. It needed to be done because the public has a right to know what's being done with their tax dollars and to feel involved in the space program. But i'm not a newscaster or youtuber. I didn't really enjoy being pressed into service as one. I felt that my job was to command the space station. Carry out the many complex procedures and experiments. I was tasked with to run a ship to keep my crew safe and obviously to keep everything from exploding one day. We had a standard public affairs interview. Here's what i sounded like answering questions in my factual straightforward. Are we done yet tone. We got up here about a little over one hundred and something days ago. not that i'm counting but Felt like. I picked up where i left off last time. This was not my favorite part of the day later. Katy confronted me. She said you know. If you don't sound excited about what we're doing up here. No one else will be there. She was right. I learned a lot by watching katie. And by the time i flew a year long mission on the space station. You could certainly hear the difference. You actually pat a gorilla suit in your gear. Which is incredible. He knows it's interesting when you vacuum pack something that doesn't take a whole lot of room and You know for one when you try to get kids attention and and teach them about science and math and engineering and things like that. The first thing you have to do is get their attention and nothing gets people's attention like a gorilla in space by this time. I'd figured out twitter and instagram. I've been building up the year in space hashtag. I did read an ama. I showed off the first. Flowery grew in space i played water ping pong and had a super bowl party for one. I juggled fruit which is still impressive. Even though the fruit just kinda hangs there also explained how i had to clean up a gallon size ball of urine and acid. I explained that space smells like burning metal and that my favorite david bowie song is not space. Oddity probably under pressure. It wasn't what i thought. I had been trained for but this kind of work was able to bring all kinds of people into the experience of our mission and bring them closer to science engineering and the amazing things we accomplish when we all work together but it was katie with her flute and are always positive attitude. That made that possible. We all learned a lot from each other up. There in training to fly in the russian spacecraft. They spent a lot of time in russia getting to know the culture of learning to speak the language. Not very well. I might add. I've had the chance to get to know. Russian literature and history and away never expected there's always potential for conflict and challenges particularly with the russians are countries are not always the friendliest. I guess you could call us frenemies but in space you set all that aside because we rely on those cosmonauts and they rely on us. Space is a great place to do that because no one owns in. It's a common ground where peaceful scientific collaboration can occur. I've learned from my colleagues rub in different cultures practiced different religions and were born with different sexual orientations. It's only been very recently. The nasa has recruited astronauts who openly acknowledged the same sex partner and i hope to see a transgender astronaut. In my lifetime. I have a transgender son. Who is one of the smartest kindest people i've ever had the privilege of knowing and it would be a loss to nassif. They didn't choose to include people like him the ranks. Someday retrospect i think the people who told katie and me we kill each other space underestimated both of us and overlook the power of our differences. I try to keep this in mind. When i see people who seem very different working together and i want to encourage them to see their differences as strengths. And what we referred to in the military as a force multiplier katy and i are now lifelong friends and when i think of the mission we flew together. I hope she remembers this fondly. As i do the times. I'd find her playing flute in the kupa and couldn't help a teller. Katie go to sleep. It's a school night. I don't care if you're friends with jethro. Tull sometimes people are incentivized to dodge blame or even cover up their mistakes. And i've seen this in action as well. The russian space agency has a very different way of managing and compensating their cosmonauts. Nasa does its astronauts and part of that has to do with how blame is distributed both astronauts and cosmonauts are paid extra when they're flying in space in the case of the cosmonauts they significant bonus of somewhere between three hundred and fifty two seven hundred. Us dollars per day depending on how experienced they are so for someone like my friend. Ganado who spent eight hundred and seventy nine days in space. That can really add up. By contrast american astronauts are paid the government per diem rate five dollars per day but our salaries are much higher to begin with. We are less dependent on that bonus for a livelihood and the cosmonauts are where the problem comes in cosmonauts are given higher bonuses for their achievements like a successful spacewalk and lower bonuses to reflect mistakes for flipping the wrong switch missing a step in an experiment or similar everyday human errors. And you might not believe this. But there's actually a real person in russian mission control. Whose only job is to track the mistakes of cosmonauts and when each cosmonaut comes back to earth they have sit in a room with the mistake tracker in an accountant to determine what their bonus is going to be experienced firsthand. the way this sort of negotiation is supposed to work when i was preparing to fly on the russian soyuz spacecraft. I trained with my crewmates in a simulator. Much like the simulators. I've trained on in houston to fly the space shuttle. After our final simulation flights in russia we would have to answer to a panel of russian space agency officials about our performance. Kind of public stoning. I would call it. It took me a while to understand that. We're actually expected to create an elaborate. Excuse matrix about how he hadn't done anything wrong. How everything was somebody else's fault and that no blame should be attached to us. I came to think of this practice as blame. Sniffing and some people were quite skilled at it bending the narrative of events to always move the blame away from you and towards some other poor bastard i was terrible at this but that was fine with me and i think it annoyed the russians that during the public stoning when it was my turn to make an impassioned speech about how i didn't flip the wrong switch. I just say that was me now. Once we were in space the question of blame got real from my russian friends. They're always dealing with the possibility of losing their income to the smallest mistakes. So i tell them the blame me. As far as i could see. It was a win win. They wouldn't lose their bonus in their control center. Wouldn't spend a day trying to figure out what went wrong because they were avoiding responsibility. Real teamwork means as crucial for everyone to admit their mistakes. If you want to solve problems move fast and make sure everyone's doing their best. You can't punish people for speaking up. That's true in space but it applies anytime anywhere in my experiences space shuttle crew member and later as commander of the international space station. I learned how important this was on the space shuttle. If i had actuated the wrong switch at the wrong moment always a possibility with two thousand of them. I met have caused one hundred people in mission control the spin hours or even days trying to figure out why they're data looked funny and not focusing on what is important. It's so much better to just be honest and move on and if that doesn't work you can always say the american didn't hey guys this. Is tim again. Just a few more things before you take off number one.

My name is Todd Henry, I am your host the stories that we tell ourselves affect our lives in profound ways. And that'll just mean the stories that we tell when we're entertaining ourselves. Although those are important to write how we see what's possible for us. When we hear the stories of other people how they've overcome adversity and how they see the world of possibilities influences us as well. Because it makes us think wait a minute. Maybe maybe I could do that. So those things are important, but I'm talking about the way that we filter experiences how we filter and sort and give meaning to the experiences in our lives affects how we bring ourselves to our work to the people around us, and ultimately to the body of work that we build and so today, I wanna talk about how those stories affect us. And we'll give you a couple of frameworks for thinking about those narratives those stories and consider how those might affect.

We think fresh books for sponsoring this episode of the accident critic podcast. So a while ago. My family went camping in southern Kentucky. And my wife for warn me as part of the trip or we're going to make a side excursion to a place called horse cave to do a little as she called it light repelling. Okay. Now, the reason for the advance notice is that my wife knows that since before we met at had a deathly fear of heights. But she told me it was probably like a tiny little cliff. No more than fifteen feet high. Because I mean the kids. Can do it. Right. So there's no need to worry. And plus she added the entire thing in at a pizza buffet. So if you wanna make anything, okay with me, just tell me it involves a pizza buffet and good, it's fine. So the time came to go repelling, and we packed up the kids we headed over to the site. And we met our instructor who gave us like a two minute primer on proper technique for repelling. So I thought okay. Well, if they're only going to give us like two minutes of instruction. How how high could this cliff be they started putting on our gear? And we put these heavy duty harnesses and helmets on. And I remember thinking, wow. This is a lot of serious gear for a little kitty cliff. But I mean, how dangerous could it be? They're giving us a few minutes of instruction. So our instructor gave us two pieces of info that we were not previously aware of. I it's not in fact, a tiny fifteen foot cliff, but a seventy five foot sheer rock face that we'd be repelling down. Nice and second. There was now a lightening storm. Moving in quickly. The storm is about sixty miles out at the moment. But once the storm got within twenty miles. We couldn't send anyone else over the cliff because he thought has he put it like you can't outrun lightning. Again nicer. It's great with it. But it's so true. Now, you can imagine that given my version to heights I suddenly developed a new strategy. I was going to be the most polite repel or in the history of horse cave. So as we started making our way out the door to head over the cliff. I was letting everybody else in front of me, right? I'm thinking if anybody is not going to go over the cliff because of the storm, it would be yours truly. However, the pretend I'm polite while I'm actually terrified strategy was foiled because when we got over to the cliff I looked over and I saw my nine year old daughter. Eva nine years old at the time standing at the front of the line and her eyes were as big as dinner plates. She was so excited. She couldn't wait to go over the cliff. In that moment. It was like a universal referendum on my manhood. Right. I was not going to be the guy who chickened out on the edge of the cliff while my nine year old daughter gleefully, skipped down like a mountain lion not gonna happen. So when they ask for an adult volunteer to go. I I raised my hand. And I said, I will go I will do it. I want to die quickly and with honor. That's how I thought. Right. So I walked over I hooked in lean back and pretty soon. I was making my way down the cliff. I got just about out of earshot of everyone. And I suddenly heard the instructor make a pronouncement to the group. He said, okay, everyone apparently the lightning storm is coming in faster than we thought. And we're going to have to hurry and get everyone over this cliff as quickly as possible before the lightning strikes. So as I continue making my way down I began shouting up at him. No, you're not not gonna not going to happen. You're not going to hurry. I was thinking you're not going to rush. The dangle my kids over the precipice of. Death just in order to hurry them to the bottom of the storm. Right. That's what I was thinking in my head. I'm like literally yelling up at this guy, as I'm going down this cliff in that moment, our instructor who is awesome, by the way, my instructor and I were living out to entirely different stories. His story was something like all of these people are expecting to repel. And it's critical that we hurry them to the bottom. So we can beat the storm right before the storm hits like that was his understanding of what was going on. My story was closer to you know, let's get as many people over the cliff is possible. But if not everybody gets to do it. That's fine. We'll do it some other time and besides if someone falls and dies it's going to ruin the pizza buffet, which is kind of my primary objective here. So we were experiencing the same circumstances. But we had completely different responses. Why? We had vastly different stories about the amount of time available in what that time meant in terms of our priorities. The story that you believe about time can make all the difference between full ineffective collaboration and days spent imposing false urgency on to everyone around you. And the story you believe becomes your experience of reality. It does because it's your filter for all of your experiences. If you filter your life through the lens of anxiety, then everything in your life is going to feel like a threat if you filter your life through the lens of hopelessness, then when things are going really, well, you won't be able to enjoy it because you'll always be waiting for the other shoe to drop if you filter your life through the lens of envy, you'll always feel like other people are getting a better deal than you. Even when you're doing better than you could have ever imagined, you'd be having a great experience, yo experiencing and getting more things than you ever thought possible. And yet, you can still feel envious if you feel like other people are getting more than you these internet gives and filters are very. Stealthy in they're difficult to spot, and I've developed what I call color filter theory to help you identify some areas where you're slipping into unhealthy thought patterns or narrative, so I just wanna share with you a couple of these filters, and they basically represent the primary colors right on the color spectrum. But the one of the share with these share these filters you and see if maybe they resonates if this is something that you're experiencing in your life, and how it might be coloring affecting your ability to bring yourself fully to what you're doing. So the red filter is for anger. The red filter is for anger. There are times in my life when I'm just angry over nothing in particular. Right. The odd thing is that you wouldn't know it on the surface because I'm as amiable as ever seem like I'm getting along fine with everyone. However, the moment someone cuts me off in traffic the raging. Incredible. Hulk begins to rise to the surface yet while I've never engaged in road rage like outright road rage where I'm like yelling at people and shaking, my fist. Even the slightest act of thoughtlessness or selfishness on the road is enough to cause me to stew for an hour at times why? Because for some reason, I'm filtering all of my experiences through a lens of entitlement, which inevitably leads to anger. I'm entitled to my spot on the road. I'm entitled to my place in line. I'm entitled to whatever I didn't get entitlement is about clenched fists. It's about scarcity. It's about ensuring that no one else is getting the upper hand on me. And it's not creative north. Generative? It's inward focused and it self limiting. So when you live in angry life, your world becomes a smaller and smaller set of concentric circles until eventually you collapse in upon yourself. This is the danger that we face in our very angry and entitled world today, we live in an angry society, people are angry for no reason. Sometimes they're just angry at other people look at our dialogue. You look at our public discourse. Look at our politics, look at how businesses are run people are just angry, and it's causing us to think in terms of entitlement, non interns of possibility not in terms of generating non interns of we tend to think that things are scarce rather than thinking that things are abundant when we live with an angry mindset. So here's my challenge. Your my question for you. Do you find yourself getting irrationally angry? And if so I encourage you to spend some time drilling down into would is the source of that. Anger that source of entitlement that's causing me to get angry over nothing. Typically, it's because expectations are not being met. Unspoken expectations are not being met in some capacity. So is there an area of your life? Whether from your manager, your client, your spouse, your kids were unspoken expectations are being missed or were overt expectations are being missed, and it's causing you to filter everything through through a red filter through the lens of anger, right? The second filter, and this all we have time to talk about that today. But you spend some time thinking about that the second filter is green the green filter is envy. Read his anger. Green is envy. When you're able to. Let's say with the flick of a finger see all of the beautiful inexpensive places. Your neighbor went on vacation all the job opportunities. They're getting all the people. They're meeting the successes that they're perfect adorable. Well-groomed children are having it's difficult. Not to fall prey to envy Ray. It's tough. Did not begin to think that everyone else is getting something that you deserve. The somehow. You are getting the short end of the stick to compare what you have with what other people have it doesn't matter. If your life's going perfectly, well or that compared the ninety nine percent of humans really ninety nine point nine percent of humans throughout history, you have more wealth than opportunity than they could ever have dreamed of. Just the fact that you're listening to this podcast episode right now says that you are among the point zero zero one percent of humans throughout all history. It doesn't matter if someone, you know, get something you wanted. It can feel like you're losing, right. They got it. I didn't it's green filter. It's envy, it's easy to succumb to a zero sum mindset without even knowing it, and there's you can feel like there's not enough to go around if they get it you won't. I deserved it more or you have to win everything because your identity is staked on being the winner. Right. You can you have to position yourself as if it's if it's ideal even if you're going through one of the roughest patches you've experienced in your life. You have to show everybody. Look, how amazing everything is even though you're going through a rough patch when you see the world through a green lens, you feel like everything in your world is a competition including perception, so you succumb to expectation. Escalating? Or the sense that you have to constantly be ratcheting up your personal productivity, your compliments that you can keep pace with everyone around you not realizing that many other people are engaging in the very same tactics, succumbing to the same pressures. So basically becomes a nuclear arms race. We're all posturing ourselves to look better. And better more impressive because we are envious of everybody else. And we don't realize that everybody else is responding to what we're doing. And so it just creates this ever escalating arms race, you were not responsible for anyone's life. But your own your engagement, your focus. Your time your energy, whatever they are doing is none of your business as the old saying goes, you've worry much less about what everyone else thinks of you. If you realized how little they actually do. So are you looking at the world through a green filter? Are you comparing constantly comparing yourself to everyone else what they're getting to what you're getting? And then the final filter is yellow which is fear. This is really difficult to diagnose because it often comes disguised as wisdom. Right. Fear comes disguised as wisdom. Are you? Sure, you want to wouldn't it be wiser to one if they rate these are the kinds of product questions it sound perfectly reasonable when you're considering a creative leap. However, they play in the shadows of your mind artificially, escalate the potential consequences of failure to the point that you don't ask you'll take those small strategic risks that are necessary in order to get outside of yourself. Do something of value. You cannot produce your best work while operating in your comfort zone. We hear this all the time. Right. This is what everybody says oh get out of your comfort zone. Yeah. Yeah. I get this. We know this. It's intuitive. We hear motivational speakers blare about it all the time. It's cliche, and it's cliche because it's true. You see the problem is that we don't think our comfort zone is a comfort zone. We think of it as a wisdom zone. This is the problem. We think that we're being rational and cautious and tempered in our approach. But at the root is our. Our inaction due to fear when you see the world through yellow lens. Your opportunities are always clouded with anxiety. You worry about what other people might think. If you don't live up to expectations you're concerned that the right person for the job is someone else. Not you that you may not be able to live up to those expectations. You wonder what if a lot right? So what if I actually succeed can I sustain what if they find out? I'm not really trained to do this. What if I do something wrong? And they laugh at me that question what if is always turned toward negative potential outcomes. When we see the world a yellow lens. Always however, the wonderful thing is we can also shift that question those questions and ask them with a positive slant. So what if this is exactly the opportunity I've been looking for what if I discover I'm actually good at this. What if I enjoy it, and it opens up a new world of possibility for my career the same question? And ask with a different slant becomes possibility making as opposed to possibility. Limiting so I challenge you to consider the kinds of questions that are swirling in your mind right now about your work. These are often called ruminations because they're like mantras that we repeat without knowing it we unknowingly obsess over them. And they limit our ability to think in terms of possibility and often they're the result of seeing the world through yellow filter, which is fear. All right. So those are the three filters the three story filters that we have do you. Find yourself looking at the world primarily through a red filter, which is about anger, which is about entitlement. I'm entitled to this. I want more of this. Why am I not getting what I need? Or the slightest thing sets us off Ray, if so it could be about expectations not being met, and we might need to have some expectation management discussions or do some journaling about expectation management the antidote to the red filter is agency it's cultivating a sense of agency. And centeredness rather than feeling like our world is at the whim of everybody else rate or that we are in some way being encroached upon by others. Instead it's about developing agency to handle those expectations agency to communicate our expectations to others the green filter envy. Are you looking at the world through this lens? If so the antidote to this is gratitude, it's spending some time journaling what you're grateful for all of the amazing things in your life. That may be don't even consider because you're so busy looking what everybody else has. You're not considering what you have even if it's not as much as everyone else. It's more than someone else. Right. So spend some time journaling your gratitude about what you have. And then finally the yellow filter fear is about rumination on what might happen. I encourage you to write down your anxiety. Is you know? So what if I actually succeed can I sustain what if they find out on that actually trained to do this? What if something I do something wrong? And they laugh at me, you take those. Things I write them all down and then turn them into positive slanted questions. What if this is exactly the opportunity I've been looking for what if I discover I'm actually good at this. You know, what if I enjoy it? And it opens up a new world of possibility for my career spent some time taking those ruminations and turning them into something positive. Listen, how you see the world the story you tell yourself will define your reality. It simply will it's not just what happens to you. It's how you filter it. And how you respond to that determines your reality your destiny? So I encourage you to spend some time thinking about those filters that might exist in your life, and how they're affecting your creative engagement hope.

any american dream onto cahill this episode i joined by mindy sokolowski said that right correct me yeah nice job a m f aerial correct that's right so i assume e m f stands for mindy sokolowski what is the aerial stand for so aerial is you ac company that i run here in new england you wavy what is that unmanned aerial vehicles okay yes so we a we fly all over new england and we collect datta for construction sites a facade inspections and erosion control all right so how did you get into this what was the impetus for this company where the back you pilot i mean i am a certified drone pilot now okay but years ago i was a photographer and i made my living doing events and had shot and corporate a just corporate events and i had met somebody who did drone flying as a hobby and they told me years ago was the this was in twenty fifteen fifteen to twenty twenty fourteen twenty fifteen and they said to me you know i really like you're work you're good at imagery what do you think of starting a drone company and i said well that sounds amazing like what would we do and he said you know we would do promotional emotional videos we would collect photographs for corporations and individuals and you know will get a website up and one start a business and that was very enticing to me i was looking to get out of photography and something that was less physical photography's tiger fee is very physical you're carrying a lot of equipment around it's very demanding 'em so i i was looking for a change and we started a company and over the years not too many years ago it has evolved into more of industrial a business meeting we work with architects and engineers and we do less promotional videos less filming less cinematography and more debt collection so drone technology has been around since i mean i i don't know exactly but when when when drones first well a pub a commercial you're on the market we always know drones some the military right on little rock but it has evolved end the company that really brought it to the forefront and into the commercial arena was the company dj i and they're out of china and they sort of flooded the market where commercial consumer drones on the nerves like three four years it wasn't around five six years ago and and they they have evolved on the drones we use are much more complicated 'em they they are industrial they're still multi rotor there's two kinds of drones multi rotor and fixed wing a we actually use multi roader and and sometimes we actually build our own drones to fit the needs of of these young person who's hiring us so you so you actually manufactured drones that's right we have an engineer on are team and a good for instance would be when we had to inspect smokestack we had the fly into smokestack income out of the smokestack and so what we needed was appropriated bumpers on the rotors we needed to be able to compete with that gps information because when you're in a smoke stack you're lacking that information that signal is debt so you're flying manually really so we had to have that information on hand and we had to be able to fly in a situation where you're dealing with sorted and other particles in the air so it had to be a robust vehicle that also fit all those needs and be able to capture the appropriate datta for the client and it worked it worked it worked very well interesting interesting i i'm fascinated with drones obviously more on the i guess lessen the commercial side yeah people now using them just as toys right even flying around and stuff but on the commercial and then they have tremendous tremendous high use right they have tremendous value according to essay website the biggest use for drones is hobbyist as in like capturing vacation videos or photos and then you have the cinematographers first that are doing like the beautiful high end videos a who's used to be helicopters they just have to go up in a helicopter and actually physically take those pictures they right exactly and they still do but with drones obviously you can get so many more viewpoints you could it's so much more rich information on and like you said there is that commercial use and and that is really where my company shines so you went from being a photographer who an aerial photographer i guess correct that is correct term that's correct so my role as when we first started was i would take the actual photos and are pilots would fly the drone so you have that to part partnership where it's it's needed to get that valuable data datta and information but as time went on my role sort of revolved or evolved and i became the just ceo and i see over like i oversee the daily activities and i i do all the marketing and i make sure that were on track and have the right permits and and were good to go as far as any sort of government allowances correct correct and we're gonna go into that the government has a big role to play a bigger role going forward as he's become more prevalent what i wanna know more about your story like you you said you start at the photography company how will we started the that that's right so i became a photographer when i was twenty four okay open my own studio and i told you before that while i was in college college okay yeah and then i just eventually just said you know this is what i wanna do i majored in photography i went the tops in the museum school combined degree and i you know i said i'm going to apply myself and i'm gonna do what i actually went to school for which is i feel a rarity sometimes yes yeah and and so i started my own company amis photography i i would shoot forty fifty weddings year i'm okay very busy wedding photographer first first yeah said that it evolved into a more corporate situation where i was doing events an end headshot maybe some products shots few and far between and it was enjoyable but like i said it's physical and as you get older you sort of wanna change it and have some more options in life so the weddings can be a grind jay they are very physically ofensive right now but i think that a lot of people don't realize how physical wedding photographer is and how hard it is and how difficult it is not only are you carrying around multiple cameras for twelve hours you're listening to people in meeting their needs and you are there to certain yes yes it's a very difficult job and it's the one that people complained the most about in terms of paying for right exactly a wedding you writer the cake you pay for the everything goes and then you photography and you say well i'm not gonna pay absolutely so it's it's it's gotta be bit frustrating it will it was very frustrating as a business owner you know i had things there to pay for i have insurance to pay for i have assistance the pay for i have equipment upkeep to pay for i have office space the pay for so and third party processing lake on web hosting to pay for so when people would argue about the price a little upsetting and that was one of the major factors of why i got out of that industry do you always interesting photography since you're young woman oh i i absolutely nyu from three years old but i was gonna be a photographer i think if we can all sort of remember that beautiful july nineteen eighty three portrait of any woman on the cover with those gorgeous stunning here lewin green eyes and the red 'em hooded outfit and i think we if she were studying and then it just captured man i that's what i wanted to do did you 'em is anyone in the family that that had a history of doing this or did you just sort of pick discipline euro ironically everyone in my family owns construction companies oh really okay yeah so that was up for re until what i do now but no one was interested imagery photography or anything artistic but entrepreneurs though oh yeah were all were all entrepreneurs okay all right so that runs deep in the family had well we all have that in common i think a lot of families would sit down and talk about what they wanna do did they wouldn't go to the parker did they wanna watch a movie were gonna sit down and talk about like are are are business you know project it's interesting that now you're back in the construction industry or right you're you're businesses evolved into that what you're family think about that they think they think it's great i i often times have questions for them terminology or or or what should i do as far as like a payment goes i think they have a lot of great input on there are situations that i was unaware of that i needed to meet certain standards and they would chime in and say you know what if you wanna be a real legitimate business this is what you have to do what is the competition like an aerial photography so it's far cinematography goes there's great competition in the boston area there a lot of companies out there that are looking to either showcase real estate or promo videos for their business you know they wanna fly over the make their like car lot more interesting that there is a great need for that that as far as the construction industry we are a bit of a diamond in the rough and a you know we certainly like it that way we offer so many diversified services that it it's we really have a hold on the industry industry right right 'em would would other than any chimney experience which what's been the most challenging project if you can if you have one that stands out or a number of them that that really can sort of describe for our listeners there's what what it is you have to take into account when you're breaking up a shot or providing a service for one of your clients right that's a great question so what we do a for what we do mainly is facade inspection okay now every five years a building has to be inspected in boston to meet an ordinance that means like falling rocket that means you know something where somebody could get hurt if there was if the building was not up dakota so when you would normally expect that you would bring in a boom or a lot or or even have people repelling off the side of the building right those are all great options but what is a more economical an affordable option is bringing you eight v operator to take imagery a jury and so we can assess the building and make a nice visual report for the client there are many challenges there are ebay regulations obviously you can't lie within the bravo that means close to the airport that's a class b airspace right so we apply for what's called a co us certificate of air worthiness of sometimes that is approved sometimes that's not approved and i couldn't take up the ninety days and what we do when we fly and we look at a facade it's very difficult and challenging technical lying so we have commercial pilots on hand that if they need to they could communicate with logan and say like wearing this airspace we wanna make you aware that this is what we're doing and then we're also listening to what's going on in their space and so were everybody's safe that that is are goal although these folks are like air traffic controllers yes that's credit they on the site now they're on a in a studio somewhere there in the tower there in logan so how we communicate with them to make sure our you know iser dotted t's across your folk singer in the tower no no no the just the logan's right people so where do your folks work i mean if you're doing building one beacon street mhm you guys on the ground at one beacon street or you on the roof for you in an office somewhere some sometimes were on the roof but mainly were on the ground have a three person team will have actual pilot was the person and who is relating information to the tower if necessary and then we have a safety person on hand to answer any questions that bystanders have and make sure that everybody is safe and that there's no objects in the way etc on the difficulty in this is that one is technical flying so that means if you're close to another building you're gonna have like window emergencies that is gonna capture the drone actually hold it in a pattern that the pilot has to get out of so you have to be a very skilled pilot lead and another thing that is a challenge is by standards are are goal is to educate them but sometimes they you know they wanna be educated maybe a little too much for the time that's a lot it and so will have somebody on hand answering those questions and and we also may have police details if necessary right so it's a complicated so multi step process to to execute yes a job that you need to do yes it takes months for facade inspections and you say that every single building in boston has to be inspected every five at least once every five years if they're above a certain height okay then they meet that criteria and what is that height music i believe that's it in the seventy seventy five foot at are yeah there's a lot buildings in boston quite quite a number of buildings and we we don't always get approved right you know there's that situation where it's it's there's a time constraint and it just doesn't work out v architecture engineer may decide that they wanna go a different route but but it is very cost effective to hire us and we do three d modeling so what the client does is they go online and they view the facade and they could pick it apart and look for those cracks and fissures in the building and create a great report probably better than if they were physically up to oh absolutely because we have the we have the information categorize for the right right right i'm sure it helps a lot with their insurance as well to absolutely absolutely and it's big it's getting to be more accepted you know i i think that people won't be hiring the retailers as as much as they used to i think that you eighties will be brought on board which is safer yeah end of the day is long as it doesn't interfere with regular here yeah i absolutely it's much it's much safer end you know if you think about a boom truck has a large footprint right footprint is very small were not in the way of a traffic and were were fasted we could do it in a matter of hours in his nose the far left safety concerns i mean all we heard i think it was a couple of years ago there was a number of cranes and you know large exactly you know 'em vehicles that were i mean obviously they still need those cranes right older building but in many cases a this seems like a much safer right wallace low cost alternative right if an engineer could eliminate a boom they're they're very happy i mean it's it's costly but you're not gonna get the views that you're gonna get with two eighty right i mean whether you eighty you're gonna get a three hundred sixty view view and you're also going to get very close to the building and you're gonna get angles that the boom can't get right i mean let's say the boomers on one side of the building it can't maybe look around the corner so so that's where a you know are are sort of talent lies what do you think the future of sort of the drone industry where where's it gonna go but you know in terms of you know will it be able to at some point washing windows and somebody skyscraper to physical tasks or is it really only ever gonna be you know amazon is talking about right owns debate packages do you see that happening and how does that sort of impact your long term plans for right msn aerial well what would i do see is the essay is gonna keep cracking down i don't believe that they're gonna lead up and say oh you know what whoever wants the fly is gonna fly washing windows hey that's great will let you do it i i don't see that happening a more so i see them saying like if you wanna be a hobbyist this is exactly what you wanna do and if you wanna be a commercial entity you have to eat meat even more guidelines then there are currently i mean you can't have so many drones and airspace right right 'em in that's but at the same time if the drones are making things better more efficient safer right you want more right exactly you want more adams and these planes are flying close right you know in most cases i mean near the airport there obviously their right to the ground but it's not like you're gonna you shouldn't have an accident right if you're focused on building or and even in open site especially if you're far far enough away from any airport how how how do these drones go seizing go up to four hundred feet but i think it would be rare that you would be going that high unless you're doing like a top topography study for a construction site right i mean like you're not gonna go that high in the city city of boston and we do not inspect anything over four hundred feet like you know were just not gonna do it right 'em where do you do this is it just in massachusetts to you guys look behind mess i mean what is you're sort of you're space no pun intended so what is are airspace yeah we are all over new england you know a connecticut rhode island new york a main vermont that that area 'em we do focus a lot on the facades like i said but a large component of what we do is erosion studies where we work with surveyors and we look at how much sand is being lost on a on a shoreline so say like you have someone like marshfield her duxbury you know in in house neck i living how's neck i we went through that tremendous storm this past year this is why i personally invested in this technology so we could aid people in studying the shoreline and seeing if you know the jetties are good lanes or or seeing if the seawall is inappropriate height eight i that that is my goal in my focus for this next year is to work with people working on the shoreline of are local area it sounds like that it'll be very lucrative in long term business right land right climate change and all of the challenges and just go i mean every storm it seems like it reconfigure the beach that changes the landscape were having a debate right now in quincy about how high should the seawall righty and right on cue they'd be i often wonder at every time they rebuilt plum island they go they send out the newscast is a clown how is it that no matter how much sand or kind of the controls that we try to put up ram water will always be ocean will always win right exactly always wins exactly in the but yet people wanna get closer and closer and closer in the way of the water it seems like something's gotta give and i don't know exactly what you folks can do to stem the tide maybe the convince people mhm or communities and this is not the place to build housing development right exactly well tim i will tell you that during the storm i put my three year old and humvee and he loved it i didn't like it i was a little nervous but he was a static he thought it was the greatest thing in the world but that is definitely something that i said to myself you know what this is an area that i wanna study that i wanna get involved in and we can work with surveyors to look at you know sand loss or over time we could actually build a chart and what we could go back and fly like every month every two months and we can't tell you how much sand is being lost overtime interesting yeah that's an interesting concept and i guess this is the thing that fascinates me about entrepreneur noise is they don't always know where they go right right but to trial and error experience and like you said a personal experience of being washed out exactly how safe is having a bad storm right 'em leads you to an opportunity that you didn't think of right or exactly i i definitely think that sometimes you have ideas that are hit or miss an end when you first start out you you may go down the road where you think wow this is this is gonna be great this is gonna be a moneymaker this is gonna be so interesting to the people and you it couldn't be more opposite you made bad decision i had a person coming earlier in a one of one of our business people came in early and he he's talking about a software that he was developing and i think he said you know i did everything wrong it could possibly do and still be in business but that process of trying and failing exactly eventually hopefully if you stay with it long enough gets you to the point of success so you see something that you would never have seen if you hadn't kept trying right to to to do it in and it seems like this is they you know if if you're fighting the government in some ways in their favor regulation may be something that they would probably wanna work with exactly exactly you don't have to go up four hundred feet either i mean he may be you know right you know sort of i mean you don't have to deal with some of the stuff in the bronze of dealing with congested downtown whole different model that seems to make a lot of sense and really does a lot of good at the same time right actually could provide a lot of good opportunities and not just for the business but for for everyone yeah i i will tell you that the the greatest problem that we as drone companies still what is inexperienced pilot the person that says you know what i'm gonna go into business i'm gonna make money i'm gonna you know i'm just gonna go fly by the seat of my pants and i'm gonna just fly around and will see what happens happens a are pilots like i said are commercial pilots they are aware of airspace they are aware of the language that they have they used and they are aware of what could go wrong in the consequences if it does go wrong so i think that when you start a business like my goal is to not be the top dog i'm gonna run the show yes but i'm not gonna pretend like i'm a pilot right i'm not a pilot i'm a business owner i'm an entrepreneur i come up with be ideas and i think that was probably the best thing that i could have done looking looking back i mean you have the have you had to wellequipped and you know you're faults are or where you you're strong points correct and what you weaknesses are exactly what you know what you don't know exactly what asking questions but that's a differentiator few right hearing experienced pilots right knowing where you're going in and because i could see this industry i mean what we know the layman knows the drone industry is again most obvious right right in the challenges like right or the peeping tom you know the drones that are all of a sudden peering into people's bedrooms right like that exactly but this is a real business opportunity for you and for people watch for pilots his well exactly you don't wanna be on a ten hour flight to hawaii but right want to be right it's it's a real i would say it sounds to me like it's a real science as opposed to just playing around bright since we do datta collection it's extremely technical you know like i said we work with a surveyors and we work with environmental specialist we work with e e p h get the information like algae blooms on so we have to use different cameras different tools and so like like you said there is a science and it is a it is hard science you have the no you're facts because you're presenting facts to you're client a fascinating story really really interesting something i knew nothing about which is always interesting to me right a an how you went from photographing wedding mhm photographing buildings to doubt photographing sort of climate change right in many ways in the future and how to help people are permanent inside really what is inevitable right right fascinating many and i'm really glad you came on your show thank you so much you're welcome you're welcome i have had a great time talking sokolowski mhm of msg aerial time who has a educated me on drone science is well is a a fashion business that she's developed in which seems like a really fascinating business

I am so excited to have you on this show. You've been on my shows before and never met me so that's kind of funny. I'm excited to have you here. What did you tell people who you are and what you do. Well i am a writer Also a technologist. And i've been a professor teaching english at the local community college kind of on a bit of a sabbatical right now trying to work on the writing stuff but i love comics. I've actually published or been in a three books about comics. One of them was actually nominated for an iser comic sue time. So those are more academic books because of my academic background something else. I'm gonna have to add to the christmas list right. Yeah it's pretty good. I like it is very small dog. That's a real dog. Likes it too and we love dogs here so anyway. My background is. I do have an academic background in english So it was. It was always something fun to do for me to balance out day to day technical stuff that i do because i work in technology. Sure so kept me from going too far insane. I guess is the way to put best. But i've also love comics have been a fan of comics for all my life. It seems like and i got together with an artist. Edging dollars who was amazing and we it. A book called that very night which was foreign shoes from. I think what far studios a several years back and then which was weird to me. Because i didn't know what i was doing. Isn't that how we do this. We don't really don't doing we. Just jump in i. Nobody told me. I couldn't do this. So i kinda did it. And even if they do you still gotta try right exactly. Yeah and that went over real well me. Now i've got a lot of good feedback on it and the art was force. We did We also worked with a letter. That the zacks rusk wooten who. I don't know somebody. He worked on a little known. Indie book held the walking dead. I don't know if anybody's hard. I'll have to look that up but rustler's great to work with as a designer in his letter and then start started to get into some of the i guess. The indie comic seen a little bit started meeting some other creators which was really awesome but writing comics in general describing comics art. You can either things that we do in comics can often be kind of a solitary thing. So it's really great when you can reject other creators talk about you know the stuff to you necessarily can't put on social media like oh my god. I was so depressed. Today i could write word on social media. Everything's great yeah right right yeah. I interviewed art baltasar. I don't know if you know him but he did. Anybody help boy in tiny titans and he said when kobe hit i interviewed right when covid hit and he said i've been in quarantine for about eighteen years now because i'm a comic book writer so you know this is no big deal. He's used to it but yeah it was. It was great getting to meet all these people and you know seeing that we have a lot in common and then just is great because Other creators. I know like kevin joseph who tart out another long running book on kickstarter. He's pushing me to try to do things better. we always. it's it's really great. Support mechanism comics comes community is really extremely supportive. And it's just wonderful. It really is yeah. I have another show called alley chats which you were on. That's what i was alluding to before. I didn't interview i through that show. I mean before that show. We knew a lot of creators in the comics industry and they are just great people and we started that shows where to draw attention to these people. And it's even better. I mean we're seeing just craving the community there so supportive with each other. It's just a wonderful community to be in and and we're talking all the way from. I interviewed peter bag the other day. Who was just the loveliest guy in the world. And he's in indy comics. That's a pretty big name. I think legend is probably the proper term to although i gotta tell you well. He said he was telling me that he would do any khan and he said i get invited to maybe six a year and he said out of those. There's five hundred people. There five will come up to my table because your name was thrown. Like i understand that but i guess in indy comics. That's that is the legend status right. That's right absolutely but yeah i mean it's It's so wonderful and especially this year. When you know we don't have you know that normal physical camaraderie that we would normally get through cons right. You know right stuck with its. You know we're stuck with zoom meetings or you know Email or twitter. Or you know you pick your pick your medium there and that's how we get to interact with each other but it's honestly that's something that this last year has been. It's been really weird for everybody. I'm sure but it was early on it. Got at least for me and several of the people. I know it got extremely difficult to kinda do the creative thinking just to keep going in on a day-to-day basis and weren't getting that fuel. That you normally get the external fuel. Yeah and it was. It was kind of reached out actually reached out to kevin said hey I know we need. I need to decompress. Maybe you do to. Maybe we can just get together on a big zoom call will invite some of our friends and we'll just and we've been doing that for months and it's so awesome asset in top comics with you know other creators and we just you know what's going on with you what's going on with you. Got that done yet. Where's my copy back interesting. It's at direct line to their kickstarter. Right exactly yeah. Yeah so okay. You've got a kickstarter. Let's get their kickstarter. You've got going right now. Is for crossover division. Tell me about this project. Well it came about. As as i was jogging as running I haven't run in a while. you probably health. It's been a few years. I got to thinking about the role that fictions play in our day to day. Lives in how some things that really are. Fictions can be taken truth and directly affect reality also so back up a little bit. I have a an economics degree as my bachelor's degree and i got a master's in english in english and one of the things that always surprise me as the term trickle down economics which is completely made up. There is no truth to it. But it's been the basis for policy by our government for or decades right so you have this fiction this lie. That is somehow warped reality right to change to change it so that it suddenly quote unquote true. 'bout will what could i of dramatized that And what if stories started taking over reality how would you would you fight that. How would why would that happen. Reasons into the book of course but So i came up with crossover division. And i have to agents an english professor. I wonder where that came from. Research librarian consultant economics professor. Every once in a while. We'll we'll get into that. They basically have to kinda run around. And stop these incursions of these fictional realities because there are these super fans that becomes so into. Or you know just fixated obsessed with a work of fiction and this work of fiction is popular enough that you know there are other people that feel this way about a real the world that somehow that at fiction starts to invade our reality cool so it's like it's at idea of a topa so if everybody reads in is really into this one concept they it actually becomes a top it becomes reality in our reality. The dream of a thousand cats i. I love that. I don't know if i'd want to see the dream of thousand cash. I don't think i would either. I'm not a cat person. That's one big litterbox gigantic. So that is such a cool concept so you have these two agents. That are blocking this. Theoretically now i do have a question and this is more from the creative end of it since you are playing with story. Are you having to go with public domain story or you. That was the decision others. That was the decision. I kinda made early on that. I wanted to wanted for two reasons. Actually i wanted to keep it public domain. Because obviously i'm not disney right or i'm warner But there are so many Just really powerful and culturally significant stories that we don't almost recognize him anymore. I mean if you look at the hiccup sitcom or pick a police procedural pick any kind of show on tv. Probably going to have a christmas carol episode. Right right right. It's it's woven into the in. Were psyche at this point and there are so many works. Like that mean you look at frankenstein or Dr jekyll and mr hyde. Sure so i really wanted to try to get to those works. That were almost cultural touchstones that everybody would kind of know because they grew up in america. Org it's like how people believe in vampires because of a story out. There were stories. Before but bra brunswickers dracula's the one that changed that and there are people that fully believe that's real they may not go it's dracula but all the things they learned from that book are reality to them. Actually did Background into this is that up until the invention of the printing press. There was no one story. There were lots of this oral traditions where people would know this version of the story. Jersian story what the printing press did was crystallized those versions into one yet. Then everybody could agree. Aw that's where it starts very interesting well so all right so we we get the idea. The book the kickstarter is. You are launching the book. Your this is issue. One that you're trying to get out there with this. Yes the scripts for the first four issues have been written We'll be doing some editing onto three and four what we did initially was we did an eight page story so it was kind of a Think of it as a date for comic creators. I wanted to see how i would work. Pablo as the artists. And how. I would work with the letter. Breath our The editor at the time. The editor was jim. Gibbons we've sense of moved to assam oxman l. How does stripped naked and the eisner award winning panel by. I like to say that members of my team of is rich. It's actually a really good thing to say so we did this. Eight page story held no place like home which is of course a crossover wizard laws and it turned out really really well. I think in fact if you want to read it you can download it for free. Offer kickstarter page so pro tip for people out there. Get a sample of the work early right and then what we did is we began work on the first issue and the first issue is of course sets up a lot. But it's a crossover with the war of the worlds. Oh cool i. I'm a tremendous fan of of h. g. wells and his significance in science. Fiction is just unparalleled. I mean you know you've got the time machine you've got world world dr moreau he. Is you talk about those stories. That have become touchstones. They're told over and over and over whether they admit that's what the story is. Not exactly so I wanted to start off with something that was really important to me but also to kind of orient of the character so hank hank will's anchor. They're not wells and quality is our main character and he is a A teacher he teaches adjunct instructor at a local community. College and his life is not where he wanted to be. Okay depressed in the first issue. We see him if this really impassioned speech up in front of the class about how truth is so important in lies distort reality and we see the and everybody in the class is looking down at the phone or you know sleeping or doing something like that. One person says so. How long does the paper have to be. Any ages dismissed. He's he's not in a happy place and his girlfriend is has tried to help him but they've broken up and his His supervisor at the call community college get some help. Your your something. Draw trying to help him and he's just just found so he He actually encounters a crossover except he doesn't understand what's going on because he knows that we're the world is a story but when a crossover happens the people that are inside the crossover zone they think is just normal reality right. Oh yeah. they're supposed to be a seventy five foot. Martian tripod right there. That's just normal right right. No that's not normal suffered draw. Yeah right right he ends up encountering to crossover agents and they're like will one cool that you'd know that it's a story and why do you know is the story. Because that's not normal interesting interesting. They grab him in That's the the the first issue ensues. So i'm not going to give away the ending of the first issue but ultimately don't give it away. We want people to do this. Kickstarter hang does eventually get recruited by crossover division because he has a lot of what they look for in crossover division agents Huge familiarity with a vast walk of works from the last few insurer ride a culture knowledge and then his partner is going to be hector ramirez whose research librarian so one of the things about a crossover. That's kinda cool is that if you're in the crossover while let's say you're crossing over with a world. That book doesn't exist in the libraries. It doesn't exist in the crossover zone care. They carry around a heavily modified ear. That has all these books on it. So they can. They have to figure out what the crossover is. In the end the crossover simply read the last line of the story. The ending to has been dreaming bridging the gap in and causing a sharp going to happen. So the cool thing about hankins is that i know it's not a real thing but i love the idea of it's gonna use it. Which is. Hank has a photographic memory. Oh head he's read a lot of these books so he's gonna he's gonna be able to recognize this because it's in his personal memory bank. Exactly so it's i love it. So he and hector former pretty good team and They go out and as you know they start out rookie agents and then they're going to grow. This is a series that ultimately. If if i get my way will probably run around twenty issues. Okay assuming of course. I had two big assumption. But but you've got kind of a finite story you're trying to tell exactly and kick starters in our future. I hope so but The story that. I want to tell really is kind of around hank in the people around hank as he figures out. What's going on why it's going on and ultimately how to fix what's broken sure i don't want to give too much. Weight is gonna be revealed later but it for him. It's kind of this this voyage from unhappiness to excitement and happiness and then out of acceptance about what needs the way the world needs to be yeah and Basically it'll be like five. Four issue arcs the first four issues Got the writing. Mostly done songs going to make sure i up my game on issues. Two three and four sure. Make sure that it's best that we can make it but then also done a A one shot issue. That's that will also. It may just get folded into the raiders series. At that point depending on your health are going sure. Sure but it's it's a fun world to play in. I regretted it. Better be right. Yeah right right right. I it sounds like it's something you really enjoy. So that is definitely the key. Okay let's talk about the kickstarter a little bit here. Okay so of right now it when we're recording this route twenty five days to go by the time this post it'll probably be twenty four. Okay i we have right now. Were at risk your goals. Four thousand were at fourteen thirty eight. So you're you're getting there. You're actually in a great spot here. Which is great. So this is a project that's got some interest and lots of time so those are you listening. This is a great chance to get in on a project you know is going to happen and that people are interested in so that twenty issue run might very well be a reality which is very cool. Take me a while. Hopefully it will rather wait and have quality. So that's the point figures at certain other companies. that have great ideas and by issue six. You go okay. i'm done take. Your time is what i say to them. So okay you've got your tears. Wasn't you highlight a couple of different tiers. You don't have to go through. All of them just highlight a couple that you think people would be interested in. Well i think the three probably most important. Here's our like the the basic food issue that has a standard cover by pablo martin who is our series artists. And it's a beautiful cover. It's got anqing hector with some things to come around behind arranged behind them You see the wicked witch last. You see the the martian walker Then you see some other things. That hopefully will be interesting. Things that are leading. Okay our second cover So the next year up is the is the to cover edition so we have got to alternate covers so in this version you get a you get the standard covered by paulo but then you also get covered by connor hughes of white ash. Cool the game in the debt and it's a beautiful coverage. The wicked witch crystal ball has got flying monkeys. And hey you have to be totally honest. Monkeys cool they are in flying. Monkeys are Interesting beyond and you've got a picture that cover on here. That is such a striking cover. Connor is an amazing artist And just a joy to work with If maybe charlie stickney is not listening to this. But i would still conroy away from him in a heartbeat. Charlie's the rider on widish. So was not telling. It's it's pretty amazing. So then the third all three in the next level up with basically the all three covers so you get the pablo's cover. Which of course is beautiful. I love it and honors cover and then A good friend of mine is define ru of Well ec comics and dynamite. He's done so sure. Much work across the industry in marvel is in. My mind is a superstar. And i think that's literally the case he did our third cover and it is. It's pretty spectacular is at them right now. It is amazing and it has some Create has the wicked witch should has certain martian tripod of minute has a couple of things to come as well perhaps. Perhaps you can identify those. Perhaps i got him. I'm not going to spoil it. But i got him. Plus you get that temporary tattoo on that one. That's true we address. We have essentially one of the things i forgot to mention is in the universe The way a university kind of made up of its symbols right the way we sure way. We define our universities. You know we have all these symbols and the way. They protect their way. Crossover agents protect themselves. They have a world triad symbol which describes our reality on the back of their hand and that that gives them some level of protection during a crossover so that they can realize that reality is not the way it should be right. You know they don't. They don't immediately get engulfed in it. so yeah that's a temporary tattoos. Second level also comes with stickers when you get in this level as well which are the world triumph. Symbol another symbol. That's going to become important. Which is the alwin ed's You can look it up is okay okay. And then our our logo in our logo. I love our logo. so much Brant fowler letter designer. He came up with the logo force. It actually has the world trade simple in it which i think really cool and is i think it's really recognizable inches. So sleek yeah. It's really cool. I'm a brand is is awesome to work with the whole team is awesome to work with pablo has been generating some beautiful pages and we are very nearly finished But i will probably be previewing some pages as they come in on the kickstarter as well you know. Try to do updates on entice people. Yeah updates on a daily basis. Maybe every other day. I don't want to annoy people but also show off some really cool stuff. Yeah well you know. I always tell people that are doing Kickstarter funding whatever it. Is you know what you got. Let's say it's thirty days annoying for thirty days. I probably some really good advice. you know. there's a big thing about the first forty eight. We've all heard that turban as far as detective work with the first forty eight. When you're doing a kickstarter is really important. And people say. I don't want to annoy. It's like you know what i forty eight him. Every hour on every platform and then everywhere and then after that. Go to go to lighten it up a little bit but don't worry about annoying people because you're only going to be annoying for a month of their life and they're not really gonna that annoyed with you and it's you're so right because you then previous kick starters and you're like hey what did you do that like. It was a month. I was like everywhere. How did you end. it's it's the nature of social media beast. Is that not everybody's gonna see your posts so yeah well i. I talked about it with people with twitter all the time. Because like with our podcasts. With our podcast network People say oh. I don't wanna be annoying so you know when the show comes out. I do a tweet. And then i wait for the next week and i do a tweet you know tweets have a twenty minute lifespan at yet or not annoying anybody and if they are well they're on poterie. Yeah you're you're choosing to be there. But i could do something every twenty minutes. You're okay so what was you mentioned. There was a third one. I'm hoping you're going to say it's the one with the mini figs because these mini figs are making me crazy. I think they're awesome actually. Oh yes their little e-readers. Yeah it's pretty awesome so anybody that's listening. It's not seeing this. He just held up the actual lego mini figs of the main characters. It's so cool yet. Justin is pretty amazing. He did these for us. here's hank and here's hector yes And then they both have. Little modified e-readers richard so cool. So good i love it. But yeah via the mini mistakes are the next level up. You get all three covers in the mini figs. So i try to try to make sure that as the price tag for each reward here goes up bet. I'm you know jam packing that reward level with as much cool stuff. I can't of making sure that if somebody's going to back at that level league trying to get young. I'm trying to give him his value. As i can right level right to the people that are really fans that are really lit by this. And the more little things like that you can give the more they're enticed so agree the The top tier level. And i put this out there because why not but the top tier level is super expensive. And what we do for that is. My wife is an artist graphic designer photographer. And she we learn how to make books. So that level. Only what you get a kindle with laser engraved world try symbol on the back of it. Which is what hank. And hector us. You'll also get a handmade book of the world in a handmade book of the wizard of oz. I'm looking at it and they are so cool. I think you could get people at that. It's it's so tempting unless you get all of the other stuff right. Basically build up to those And i haven't announced it yet but you know what will will announce it on this. How are not exclusive. let's doing a reward level. that is going to be unveiled. Probably tomorrow is gonna be a a virgin cover. Variants in have three covers without any of the trade dress on them. You'll you'll get three covers as well but then you'll have three covers are just the art just the art. Yeah so hannibal. Yeah and i love that because the art is is amazing. That's taking anything away. I think brandt does an amazing job. The design of the trade dress. But there's something to be said for just the art you know. Yep no. I agree totally. I agree totally. That is really really cool. Okay a couple more things first of all our risk is really low as everybody can hear. So that's that's not a problem there. It's going to happen.

i dunno why what what's going on with that long though i guess we've seen we've seen eddie since the wedding so it's been a week and a half is a week and a half with me and you will well i am one of those ones that say i think about a wednesday the third wednesday the tense i didn't feel like it to be honest it did feel like it's no it didn't 'cause you know what the mid week vacation the mid week vacation a little different yeah i of course i know when you take off that friday don't come back that following monday it's like that person never existed any guy something like yeah yes like oh wow you're still around you and see how till next tuesday or wednesdays oh yeah i've totally forgotten about it he tweets a lot no while he's on vacation or see does i don't understand why he does that why is he thinking us while he's on saturday i mean no but quite honestly it's not just he tweeted out this picture the giants super yacht and said that you know boomer this is the perfect vote for geo here in italy or the perfect both from me value thing is insane i mean that's gotta be a seven eight million dollar yacht that thing it's apps or matt i don't know man i guarantee you it's more than that you think that it's like we were talking fifteen boulevard either twenty five million men really i keep reading on what the guts of it in seattle really know the footage of that thing telling me i would say that looks like is that seventy five foot five foot the eighty foot yeah that's all i say twenty north of twenty million yeah i wish i knew the make and they might be an adjunct that's what battery about yeah no that is very very popular both yeah yeah i mean i see i'm not really looking not in the market for those who don't really know the price on them all but he's tweeting this stuff out like me when i'm on vacation and what the grid yeah yeah i don't dry i'm actually feel for him like eats no no he lives for them yeah he's intentioned or even on vacation you can't help himself i likes likes him all wow you know oh alice still around and you know he's gonna remind people unbelievable you're not like that are you jerry on vacation you going of well i see something cool i will post for yeah i mean i i would have done something like that doesn't eat boat yeah i mean it it is but it's like seeing is that i love right there a now that's not very close one of those in sag harbor actually right now one of those things there's a ton of them out there yeah but that like exact one inning all that whole thing one of those yeah i just i just saw the biggest like off the charts i think there's a dealer out there actually wear it sells those things but i just to me i would take that picture i hold onto it and then i show the personal vice so something that made me think of you i take the picture when i came back in the work of big hey that's what i saw but it wasn't about boomer or you pay that out all right but out on the hill and it totally admit the yeah right enjoys it okay all right that's what he enjoys that that's you know everybody's different you think he's sipping wine in eating like here's a heavy right now he hasn't had a drink in five months yeah yeah but you don't have a vacation how little wine and cheese maybe i don't think so like in this little italian village wondering if she's what do you think he's doing any metal italian dog that was part of his social media posts you never know what he's doing yeah you teases some cheese shop or something he met a dog cheese shop chief shopping meeting dog's he's probably at the point now where he's just thinking about getting home probably obsessing over the fact that he's gotta go through airport where nobody speaks english is they're not i didn't realize he got off the plane and then had to take a three hour trainer oh yeah going from and he says i am seldom do magic genie look it's easy to get on the trained don't worry about himself no i know that you would probably tell explaining as explaining to him how to do all this what a nightmare nightmare a all right jerry is here he's got a couple of things to tell you about been a one of those slow weeks states say sports one of those slower weeks so he got a lot of balls we've talked a lot of our budget by the ray catena auto group schedule an appointment today the raycatena service center first class service at affordable prices we have the all star star game shortly american league beat the national league for three mclennan highlights can't hear them out of the crowd was so loud but there were some things that were kind of cool throughout the course of the broadcast on fox and that was be players being miked up like freddy freeman his first at bat against justin verlander certainly a different way of looking at things all that was unfair branding wow all right guys it was a strike all right i'm a pitcher bareback here that i why they're not only was he might be also had the earpiece in any who's able to talk the buck and smoke in the booth it's kind of neat actually justin verlander striking came out there in the first inning a here was freeman afterwards talked about you know having the microphone and having the earpiece in front of talking him at the same time it's very difficult loss of swing a bat so at first but there was so much fun had a lot of fun shore here's verlander justin turner he made headlines with all baseball thing in in mlb doctoring it they own rolling blah blah blah blah blah in terms of last night though he says it's all star game never gets old a lot of fun so once i got out there and start warming up got into a little bit of my routine still like is a surgery strikes by a got construction you know you actually strikes he actually throw a couple of pitchers ron ninety seven miles an hour but he could still ramp it up you know a dangerous thing thing about this whole ball debate did you see all the bats last night there there anything by you're that you're you're dad's a louisville slugger much lighter there'll be but they're all they all have a color or coding to them and nobody's but he's breaking bats anymore i think i'm thinking at the balls yes probably are as much of culprit of any as anything else maybe maybe it is is john smoltz who saying last night the launch angles the guys are always swinging for the fences a the speed of the pitches i i don't know but the bats also have to be in the discussion i think it's a lot of all they're all like coated yeah i there's a lot of factors that go into it but when the commissioner basically comes out and says that the ball rambling differently and there be something to that everybody's gonna gravitate to it any did rob manfred i answered those questions and said he's got scientists looking at the balls and he said they've done nothing the alter the baseball and they did and they had meetings about it it would be out he also said the owners don't one all this oftens i'm just telling you what he said yeah i know the more home runs you hit the more money you get paid right i drew gas but there's more money you can make is a sport to if you think that it generates more interest now i don't believe that it does but others do more home runs more fan to and it's people watching it in my opinion it's become eight great highlights sport if that makes any sense yeah yeah like you really even loop you really interested in the condensed game in the highlights but for people who sit there and watch home run strike out his boring while they do have the home run derby yes and that caught defensive very good this year and everybody a loaded how good it was and how much effort the players put into it interesting thing will be to see whether or not a guerrero junior and pete alonzo slowdown here because all the energy that they they put out there and hit all those home runs well salt not alonzo what a two run single last night you had the jacob degrom a one two three seven pitch third here was the ground this isn't a lot of fun home last night watching pete a complete in the home run derby in one in the whole thing 'em it's been a lot of fun in pete alonzo amazing forty eight hours ram oh man i i i was walking on clouds today yesterday and today i'm just i'm just so so dang happy and you think about that kid he gets it man you know he so he gave a portion of his winnings to the wounded warriors and tunnels the towers foundations and a you know that's a kid who gets it in he doubled his salary or tripled us outragous civil the five hundred to a million right right okay yes so he doubled his salary and he gave a portion of that weight to different charities locally here a and i think that's pretty cool so of course i mean you think about the mets having a guy like this that we can talk about glowingly a position player was a homegrown guy i mean it doesn't happen a lot yeah you had right and raise many years ago those careers worked out in different ways obviously david wright one of the great mets but i mean it doesn't happen a lot so the fact that we might be on the precipice of having one of these guys for a really long time wass likable as pete alonzo i mean that's just that's a silver lining in season it's got that job by sandy alderson oh yes sure downright score masahiro tanaka through the second inning he was the pitcher recor got the winner all this chapman strikes out the side in the ninth earned the save cleveland shane bieber wednesday mvp a we mentioned the rob manfred stuff there's some nb ea a news of interest adam silver met the media i think it was in las vegas but i'm not sure what summer league but either way he did talk to the media not a fan of players wanting out of their current situation you know without getting into any specific circumstances a trade demands are disheartening they're just hurting the team there disheartening to the community and don't serve the player well certainly roger goodell has any sound average just about the same rhythm crazy that wasn't goodell and i know same way that he spoke the same inflection yet sunjay he's allowed his players the takeover his league and that's exactly what's happened he says if you sign somewhere then play there i mean you have a contract and it needs to be meaningful on both sides and then the last one he says maybe it is time to revise the free agency role i think it's pointless at but then they'd have rules that we can enforce i think it hurts the perception of integrity around the league if people say well you have that rule so and it's obvious that teams aren't fully compliant so why do you have it now here on congress a little bit here's here's interesting one from sean marks now this goes back a little free agency thing we've talked about how it's six o'clock on the day of denouncement mood jews put everything out he'll to out like at four o'clock right here but every at six o'clock at were rapid fire this guys going here he signed any he's not a near and you talk about how these things in negotiating or not you're sean marks how did you find out the k d was coming to brooklyn v instagram post but he put out that's the we were all sitting in the office and we'll got five in real time with you guys we we weren't even sure if we were getting a meeting that night or 'em may telephone conversation with and that is what you're saying they basically dictate where they go you'll hear i asked what you're gonna pay as but will choose you i it's amazing an yeah good players i mean you know they they've created this kind of environment with their power and what their leverage in there the stars and david stern way back when made michael jordan magic johnson larry bird net whole group they were the stars they were the ones they were selling to the public and it's it's just continue to grow all the way to the point now where all a lot of these players are making you know forty million dollars i i being you know so it's good for everybody though it really is i mean there's certain franchises that get screwed for sure i mean you look at the pelicans but they rebuild relatively quickly with some luck in the lottery but what's going on nbc right now i think it's good for i'm not gonna say the one area where you don't have to worry about equal pay 'cause everybody's getting paid sure i getting paid a lot one other thing a couple of things marcus morris might back out of his two year deal with the spurs to sign with the knicks that are sports wants to come to the knicks it seems like it yeah and the golden state warriors going better wave shaun livingston and i know you guys were out now we talked about it monday did did you seize i on williamson to humiliate kevin knox oh yeah just rip the ball away from his face and then i forwarded when he why cropped up to me just add some into injury any bank disney now he's done for the summer well yeah yes but if you i'm sure it's gonna are you gonna try by watching rj so i watch a lot of trouble by no no maybe a little soft i'm just telling my god i i you know summer league game and a half that was cut short with hey quaint going gonna call i want it up close and personal because teams that he is already underway god you know he's just and scouts of said it's not as good as their things how we use i don't know how you

New United Ultra Economy Class Tickets Lets Passengers Get Dragged Behind Plane By Giant Rope

"The air travel industry has been grounded by the coronavirus pandemic this year. Now many airlines are looking to win back. Some customers with increased safety measures and cheap deals on flights here how united is looking to increase their revenue with new ultra economy. Class tickets. Let passengers get dragged behind the plane by a giant from the onion and onion public radio. This is the topical. I'm leslie price and this daily news. Podcast is just been cleared for takeoff state with it. The demand for telemedicine grows so does the need for connectivity. Five g. meets that need qualcomm remains focused on giving doctors and patients superior security rich. Five g connectivity learn more at qualcomm dot com slash invention age according to the air travel industry. No one's been more affected by the coronavirus pandemic than the air travel industry and is the holiday travel season draws near more airlines are looking to turn around what has been a rough twenty twenty and lure customers with some very cost friendly deals. United airlines today is introduced their new low fare. Ticket option called ultra class which leads passengers get pulled behind a plane with giant rope to their destination for about one hundred dollars less than your average economy ticket. You can forego a seat to instead be escort to the runway and given one end of a seventy five foot long rope tied to the plane's turbine engine to hang onto for the duration of your flight. United spokesperson travis. Porter had this to say today. Whether you choose to hold onto the rope for dear life or use united's complementing not tying guide to securely strap it around your body we guarantee your alterra economy experienced will be just as satisfying comfortable and safe as any of our other flying options so sit back relax and enjoy the views on the ultra economy class. We're joined now by our travel reporter. Alan potts alan welcome. Thanks for having leslie. Now alan what i like about this. Ultra economy option is the open air aspect but how does it stack up against the competitors. Discount economy options the price for one. If you're looking for cheap flights you're going to want to fly by those united ropes. A for example cross country flight on an ultra economy class ticket will cost you. Only two hundred and fifteen dollars. Compared to the three hundred and fifteen bucks you'd spend flying the same route on delta's lowest economy option delta. Relax which lets you sit underneath a toilet for the duration of the flight and are there any hidden costs. I know what delta's relax. You have to pay an extra fifteen dollars to rent a flashlight. So you can actually see in the various pitch-black waste tanks dropped in. That's where i thought that the ultra option failed a little. The baseline cost is great. But if you wanna parachute to safely land at your destination. It's an extra thirty five dollars or you can opt for a nice at fifteen dollars to cut yourself loose during the descent and if you want to carry on a bank. It's an extra twenty five to have a runway worker tape your suitcase to the side of the plane with a two inch square of duct tape. So that's an extra fifty or sixty bucks right off the bat. Exactly critics say that those extra costs really defeat the purpose of buying discounted economy ticket in the first place. That's why i hear that. A lot of people like flying through american airlines discounted economy class. Because they don't have those extra cost in fact if you prostrate in front of an american airlines flight attendants and cry. I'm not worthy. They not thirty five dollars off your ticket. American will also give you a free bag of pretzels if you allow them to whip your knees throughout the duration of the flight that's right and a lot of competitors are touting today what they think sets their discounted ticket classes apart in light of united's roll out of the ultra economy class for example spirit airlines charges. Thirty dollars for checked luggage but just hours ago. They reminded customers via twitter that they can always choose to have runway. Workers throw their suitcase. At the aircraft's nose during takeoff in hopes that it will bounce off the tip of the plane to its final destination at a discounted price of fifteen dollars. Not bad and frontier airlines just launched a nationwide campaign to re advertise their basic select economy class which involves groups of customers being released from cages on the runway and sprinting towards the plane to try and boarded during takeoff nice. I'll have to check that one out. Now you were able to test out the ultra economy class early. What did you think i did. Enjoy the extra leg space and fresh air that surrounded me but things did get tricky during the latter part of the ascent when i had to deal with passing hale and atmospheric debris here some audio of my experience. I was able to record on my phone. Oh sounds no less than than any other flight and at about thirty five thousand feet i did pass out which was a plus since i usually have a hard time sleeping on planes any after cost incurred. I did have to spend an extra fifteen bucks for a back. Brace so my spine wouldn't snap as i whipped through the air at five hundred and sixty five miles per hour and that brace proved crucial The man beside me flu without abrasive and severed his spine almost immediately. Yeah would-be nice at that was complimentary but overall would you say it was worth. I did get to my destination on time which a lot of budget airlines rarely guarantee but the extra costs did add up and i'm currently undergoing pretty intense skin grafts to replace the skin lost on my face and extremities due to sun exposure. Yeah you look pretty rough in the picture you sent me from the hospital just happy. I haven't knows again. Thanks allan get-well-soon that's opr's allen. Pots will be back in a moment.

Unfortunately two of those people are us mom. If you have a question just text me. Okay now where were we. Were continuing to talk about that magical time. Oh yes those last moments you have before you actually have a baby in front of you and moms who are listening. This misses their first child. Everything's okay with the baby warms. The baby comes out. They will literally put the baby in your not even from on your end on it. You know it's funny in medical squall. Most immediately. I remember seeing that. And i didn't get it for some reason. I didn't get like Just see section and they're like like okay. Take the baby from the sterile field and put it on the mom on her chest on her face. Go ahead kissed the baby. Mom and i was like oh. Is that okay. Sure that's but honestly like the actual experience it's completely different. It totally is and especially with vaginal deliveries now. 'cause like you still kind of feel everything when they just they really they really just take the child and just kind of just put it on you like you put a hamburger gun on top of them burgers site you. Oh wow i have a child by the way. I i wish that the ob gyn that. She hadn't said that that she hadn't went by. He is your bon on.

I think i i may have been the one who put that in all caps an hour because we had the as i said various bitty baby. We needed much more in the way of burp cloths than we needed in the way of clothes. You just cannot have enough of those really just even if you don't have the baby who as speedy as ours was the they'll have these little spitz and also they're just good for cleaning anything know at any point. Any of the number of surprises of liquids and substance is baby. Just have those burp cloths. You know you can have a holster of them around your belt. Or whatever and burp clubs. I mean that includes cloth diapers cloth diapers work as fantastic burke plots. You don't have to the says. Berkeley off will work as well. And we basically just have them laying around the house. There's like a couple on the couch is one in each chair is in the kitchen. This guy rape every single furniture in your house. 'cause you know what happens as you said the fluids that come out of the child a usually starts with one of the parents going. Oh grab a cloth you're going need. You're going to be throwing them on the ground to just gave just throwing them over everything. It's it's amazing. How much you get used to that. You know what you really get used to. Whatever it is is like as just gets wiped up. We'll deal the it is general. In general things will be. Don't worry things will be less gross. When it is from your child needed from your baby they still may remain kind of gross when you see other kids but it but for your baby everything is everything is made of gold and lilacs and is just yes. So burke clouds definitely need birth cloth. But did you have Liam sleeping in When he was also he was in a cute little onesie with matching socks and little hats. That's we took him home from the hospital on. Since we are in hawaii it gets very hot during the day and so during the day he ward nothing just diaper and in the evening he had on a onesie. Well babies have something that we don't have as an adult called brown fat which is fat that they used to literally make their own warmth. So baby is will need less to sleep than you might expect them to. You know so we had a baby was born in the fall and she still only needed a little top of some sort and a diaper and that was pretty much it. We did try swallows. But i found that. Well i already knew this from residency. That that i'm not good at swallowing there. I i yeah. I do a lot of prenatal classes. Go over swaddled. oh. I know. I've been taught i've tried to learn It's just thinks waddling is along the lines also as those Those Baby holding wraps where it's like a seventy five foot long piece of cloth new somehow pattern origami around the baby and i've never been an four every it's something's wrong. Somebody forgot to put this together for me. But yeah i have one of those not very successful you something that i really liked though After he was born and honestly she still kinda still wears on sometimes is asleep sack because the sleeps iraq is something you just put their arms with the holes them into it. That's it it's safe. You don't have to worry that it gets tangled. Also there's something else that we use with. Liam which was fantastic. It was basically it was like address is long sleeve in. It was just like a dress. I mean if it was it was it had like elastic around the kernel. That base exactly. Yeah yes leave. Yeah it's got like an elastic kind of almost. Banish thing. To the yeah. That was great. So it's a win. It did get cool in the evenings. He'd be fine but it also was open at the bottom. He wouldn't get too hot so easy to change his diapers and Say some the sleep sacks zip open from the bottom and that is clutch. That is wonderful. I mean i think what this comes down to to is. Is leslie more you know. Start with something simple. And if you're finding it's not working for you you will scramble and find something that works instead you know and preferably something that someone else has used in our in. Don't need it or you can actually tried out before you actually go buy more of them but absolutely less is more. You don't need a whole lot of thing. Yeah i'm a white noise machine. So i have one. I've never. I have a friend who actually just download an app on her phone. So at my child. I looked out. He actually sleeps pretty well. How about you did you did you guys. We still do I and i'm you know having had a baby who. Whenever she woke up she would spit up. We're doing everything we could to try to get her to stay asleep. But i you know. And i put a little question mark after white noise machine because not everybody needs it but i found that really helpful for me. You know when you're doing that trying to nap when the baby naps it's Better easier said than done a lot of times so sometimes a white noise machine will be as much for the baby as it is for you but you could always try it out. I like you said with your phone is an app for every every there's a free app for almost everything which is really nice in then I think we should talk about carseats. So i told you how to baby shower. So one of my brain showers. I actually got a stroller. That actually had a car seat. Dot com attached to the stroller and went to the car which was is in in hawaii. Had another baby shower. In one of my friends is a nurse at the hospital. She actually gave me two car. Seats were should give you two. Because she said hey at kasese do you want them. Said yes. And i took those puzzles. They were about to expire like towards the income. That is one thing i want. Everyone car seats expire by. Yeah a lot of car seats. They expire think after about four years. The car seats that grow with your child Private as it goes from a newborn carseat all the way up to a booster seat. They're a little bit more expensive but those will have an expiration date of ten years. I yeah yeah well. I mean you and this is the one thing as far as like used things go well. It's if you know who you're getting it from but if you're going to like a secondhand shop you have no idea where that car seats been or what's been through so definitely something to get new or get from somebody well preferably get new but gafsa somebody else and also you need to ask if that carseat has been in any car accidents any ex- yes cause any accident. Your car seat is now voted because there may be some type of micro fractures or something in the car seat way any type of cards especially get something new so we actually have more my one child. We have one two three four. So you have your bases covered lords. The car seat that his father jess purchase was one of the more expensive ones. Thank yeah he just you the fourth one. Oh okay because that we got from our friend. They won expire just in october. The other one expires actually next month in so in it. Your car seats are all on their last legs. Dad what except for that brand new that. Unfortunately it's still in chicago because we have been commuting back and forth a lot more but kovin so that that other cars right see is actually in a car in chicago just waiting for a child to be put in and wouldn't that be so sad if there was like the like a fender bender said curse. That's awful. Don't leave it in the car i donated. i'd have to trash it. You'd have to get a fifth car one time. Ooh we ought carseats. I just thought about we have the. Ooh you have so many cars that you've forgotten about your kid. So let me finish up on his fourth one on one. So the fourth one five inches recently purchased it has the ten year warranty and it goes from newborn all the way up to age eleven apparently. So that's the one that we're using here in hawaii now but we also have I'm gonna give slager. Who needs sleep. The podcast parents. We are not endorsed by this company. We did not get any money from this company. But i have a do not travel stroller. That was gifted to me to has stick because it turns from stroller directly into a carseat seat taken it on by multiple flights before thrown virus Who has i real thing. I guess nobody has. The flu is worse. Yes so right around that time as we actually pulled from hawaii chicago and it can fit in the overhead compartment planes. It's fair at this really nice. I know again. We are not sponsored by tuna. Having said that. I have zero of those products. And you know it's funny so for us for pick. I'm sorry wait do you have. Where do you. You have another car seat to talk about it. A well the the. I think that what you're mentioning is a good point. I what is your lifestyle picking stroller. Picking a car seat are all going to have to do with that. If you're somebody who travels a lot you know getting something on lightweight that's easier to to to transport contrary to your experience getting ready for a baby. My wife was in full nesting mode really. I mean in comparison before she was looking up videos and video reviews for things online. There's so much out there and that's really how we ended up with a system that we had him having but That carseat spent more time being swung from my arms back and forth to get her to fall asleep than it did in a car. She was in that car seat with swinging it. That was all the exercise ad time for so it was just like bicep curls and our and this is why i love the duna so much also because you same thing. My child was walked by in the house in that stroller. She doesn't sleep with him. In the dune it is walking around the house in. So that's a good point. You're going to be. I mean lightweight. Not that would be the one thing that i would. I would say lightweight that baby's going to keep on growing you know so you start with you know. Give yourself a break start off with the lightweight. And course i still it mentioned. There's a lot of things online. So there's a more online videos for How to install a car seat correctly also carseat checkpoints. Like the fire department was doing it. Will you can take your you travel to the fire. Department in firefighters will check in. your car. seat is safely installed. I know here at the hospital. Where work at discharge. The nurses actually walked the parents down with the baby in the car. Make sure neighbor at the hospital. You can go home. They won't let you take the baby with ya. Maybe we'll stay here. Go home and get you get a car seat. Bring it back here. Yeah yeah and you can find you if you go to save kids dot org. They usually have some resources for getting your car. Seat checked to and locally where you might be able to have that so okay perfect. Let's talk about bottles phillips. So i had to three of the four ounce bottles like two or three two eight ounce bottles The for class personally just because again you know if you forget cleaner which is going to happen is gonna sit in assisted. They are this worst clean. You will find a bottle somewhere. That's been sitting there for a while that you just completed forgot about. It's not a nice experience my child. He is eleven months and for the past up to three months. He refuses to take breast milk anywhere. But from the source so he will cut. Take it out without you'll take it out of my will. He just refuses taken unless it's for me. So we found a bottle of breast milk in the refrigerator back. It was next to like an onion peel. Go how long has this if you open up that bottle opener. If you're like it's more pungent than a nuclear next to actually you know that would be one thing that i would invest in is A role of masking tape in a sharpie remarking when these things are from not just for the baby bottles to for your food that to mark funny put tape just put the sharpness right on apple. You know september but But yeah we started out with the glass bottles. The eight ounce bottles just ignore are heavy. I mean like if you're given the like a newborn baby an eight ounce glass bottle like half a pound the world But you our are gonna do. We ended up having to do Tommy tippy slow flow nibbles. Otherwise you would up over They have zero and they have another zero. that's a different color but his lower zero than the other one. Fix it tommy. To be fixed. That was very confusing. But that was tommy tippy. We are not sponsor receiving as you can tell. Tommy tippy is giving me no money to drag the name through the mud today but man. It is actually the bottle that worked for us. You know. I didn't like glass bottles like i said as far as cleaning sterilizing Yeah once we could use glass bottles. We we were using them did you. Did you have a bottle sterilize. So mine this actually one of the cheaper ones that actually goes into the microwave so they actually just put like two ounces of water in you put the glass. Where or anything that can be. Sterilized can go a little tray. You mark with six minutes in the let it sit for ten minutes on really liked to. You can't do all of the glass. Where all nichols everything at once because it just to full i will mainly sterilize things at night before bed partner standpoint into microwave and just walk away in the by the morning or you know my child up in the night and i would take it out and put the drying rack but so I used a sterilizer called are super water on the stove so was a pot of water. I said it to boil. I throw the and then. I very carefully use tongs to take out the super hot things and put. Thanks for about ten minutes in like when you that method especially if you don't even need less convenient but just selected as effective pot ever the once. Well i have this airline things in sixteen minute intervals. Like an instant pot right. Isn't that what everybody has knows. An instant pot hunt probably like a rice cooker. Steam it over the rose. Why i think. I think that might be the new invention that we should try to figure out iraq bagels over rise where you steam your breast pump would object to it. Like what's on above my right. It doesn't matter about it doesn't matter it's called mind your own business that's going on up there. That's what we should call this. Business sterilize. so How about a bottle warmer did you have. Do you guys have one. Because we didn't so we we did have a bottle warmer because you know if you microwave in bottles there's hot spots and so don't don't don't We did use. We did use a bottle warmer. I liked it there too. Bottle warmers ahead. One was a bottle warmer where there's just a little clicker timer on it. And then you learn how hot it's going to be after a certain amount of time you know but that would take like five minutes. You know And then there was another bottle warmer. I had that was a travel bottle warmer which was literally a thermos with a big cap and the thermos you fill with ron wailing hot water. Close it up and that big cap you take it out and that is the cup that you put the bottle in so like if we were out at a restaurant or something like that i could just take the service out. I didn't have to ask for a bowl or anything like that. And just put the bottle. Right in that my loveless. Yeah so i didn't have. We didn't have about a warmer which use the electric teapot. Click the button on that. I got the water hide in the bottle in cupper ball and just poured the water. All our friends we were visiting them and their model warmer was very different from ours. It was like our rapid oil thing was kind of terrifying. 'cause it was one of those things that you chris button and it was literally like boy. Trumped dropped pure sodium metal into this thing. Took like less than a minute. And it was good of terrify. It worked was quick quick so that was nice boiler. Dow you know we didn't have to worry about up. He'd never bottle says he had a walking ice cream. truck me. although you know. I mean bottles don't necessarily need to be like warm. Warm gets a hold of sometimes. You could really. If it's called. You put it in the diaper bag and now within a few hours it should be about room temperature. So can you do it. You're going to edit that right. I'll look it up. That's one thing. I have to keep looking up that amount of time. That breast milk can stay global. Like i mean there. It's four hours refrigerator. Breast can then be left out for four hours. You're you're just after this. Just a give it to your baby right away. It should be okay. It like if you take a fridge and visit a bag. Our to ship bill. Yeah like those thermo bags. No so soaps and detergents so as far as laundry detergents. Go do this disclaimer. Once again we are not paid by this company draft. It has like a baby on the bottle as a pink cap is like number one recommended baby detergent draft. I think it smells fantastic. It smells house. Babies shifts now without detergent does not work. Nothing is clean. It is like washing your child clothes in water that has been sprayed with baby perfume. I do not get by now. Yeah tauzin blow. It really doesn't work so we actually just use regular clear and free. Thai base high risk tied. Your you know costco brand. Or sam's club brand whatever gets something that has no fragrances. Which a dermatologist told me. That unscented is different from fragrance free incented. Yeah unscented it can still have fragrances in it. It just doesn't have added sense so getting things that are fragrance-free is actually what you want If you wanna go with something that's more about it holding your child in the closed you're wearing and child can get exposed to whatever detergent. You're using your clothes so that's a good point. It's probably fine if you decided not to change tergence but it's probably best to just kind of switched to a hypoallergenic. Learn as far as soap goes on my spirit's jump. Lynn johnson soap like the little like the yellow soap johnson johnson baby so it actually dried my skin at my funds. Can out pretty. It has a lot of frequencies. Yeah it does smell so cute. But i actually use. I don't know if you've heard of this brand On new stella with narrative himself. Yeah yeah yeah. That was awesome. Was dad right. I'm sorry oh phillip sign but masala. I like it. They have a hypo allergenic brand. That is really nice. It is fragrance. recent free. don't need to use a lot of it either. So that's that's the stuff we use on my kidding stella another thing that is good to have before you have the baby which pretty much everyone has. Nowadays is a cell phone nice smartphone. Because it's so great to have available for photos and videos and all that good stuff of the baby You know you can set up your own little photo shoot in that useless nursery and use your cell phone as you know your your machine to take photos and videos just really nice to have. I think definitely Your baby is going to do some weird things. I mean they can do some things screen you'll be like i don't know if that's all right and then you just take some video you know because it's just it's hard to always. It's hard to describe what it is that your kid is doing when they do these weird things and so you can just pull on your cell phone avenue recorded and same thing with like skin rashes. Get a lot of rashes. Yes get to kind of take pictures of them and you can show it to your physician. But i will say i have a hard time describing rashes. Taking that picture can can really be very helpful so One thing that you may have on hand that you should probably get more of is nine volt batteries. The reason being sometime Before that babies born you want to replace all the batteries in your houses firearms because the last thing that you wanna have is Is have a baby who's finely settled down for the evening and then you hear this church attribute because we had that happened a couple of times so stock go to costco By big old box of those nine volt batteries. You'll be you'll be very thankful that you did ours will even sound like there's actually a fire won't even chirp it it. Just kind of go off. Battery is low. So very good point philip. Thank you on so yeah. We covered did as far as feeding. Goes phillip. i think we could do a whole on. Just yes we are we are we will do. One of our like one of our next episode will be will be on on just feeding absolutely You know. I think that having an idea of what you are planning on doing is good and then you kinda go from there. Because you don't know what your kids gonna do you don't know it all And yeah we'll we'll have an entire episode on that yeah. there's who. I'm still breastfeeding. You know my child is. He's eating foods now but he's still performs breastfeeding and he has two teeth philip to tv from so i will discuss teeth in breastfeeding. You're like i'm right on there. I'm there right now. This i mean this is with the weird thing about this. Is it's like a series of little moments that seemed like an eternity that when all said and done Go very very quickly. Somehow you know that. I mean it's it's it's a it's great. I'm exhausted having a lot of fun. I'm having fun and you know you never really quite get into a routine because your child just starts doing something new. You're like oh well now you crawl into the kitchen. So i guess i have to put up a gate for the well you know. I think this is why a lot of times do plan the nursery. Because you may not be able to make a nursery after the baby's born right right if you wanna go where you have. Who is so true because point. Use them as soon as he goes to sleep. I'm going to do. Abc xyz and then he falls asleep. I'm like okay. I'm gonna do. Abc xyz jason. june. As i watched this episode of this show i will macro it turns into. Oh i'll watch another one. Oh let me take a nap. Oh he's awake. You never go if you don't take care of yourself. You know you're ex. You're doing something for the baby right out. So speaking of which. I went and had a massage like a hot tub session a massage yesterday. The verse i've done this in over a year and a half because you can't do it when you're pregnant safely so yup and my body is just a totally different body from when i was this is actually this goes and this goes on the preparation section. I i mean so. We have a mutual friend ninety but yeah we have a mutual friend. Allie who Who's a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor. Who lives in maine. They came to visit and lucy took her to go get a prenatal massage when she was pregnant and she literally came back just because it was it was so good for her. You know having somebody who specifically knows prenatal massage Yes you. I know this is like an obviously the pandemic times and everything right now too so everything is depends on where you are but if that is at all possible it's a good thing to get it yes to get your own. I am fortunate enough to where i live in hawaii. My landlords they own of spa Unfortunately they didn't have anyone who is trained in prenatal massage by couldn't get it done while i was pregnant. Ladies you have to go to someone who is trained in who made a massage because a massage can actually send you into labor just are not trained in prenatal besides so you must go to someone who is trained in prenatal massage Special special table and everything absolutely. But i got my first massage yesterday and my shoes explained to me how my hip is rotated backwards now interesting. It wasn't like that before. I got lewis. You're right hip is rotated outward into the back. Well thank you. You feel this. As the process of pregnancy goes on. Suddenly everything gets looser. Everything starts upbringing understatement. Everything it's lose my thumbs were lose them. The thumbs have to get loose to deliver everything. It's totally different body. Some having fun. I do one another one. Still and then the analogue. You guys one another one as well i. This is assuming i would say bob not apparent yet And you're one of kim. The fact that both are like yeah know we could do that again. That's like was pretty good. It's a lot. I mean we're pediatricians kids to begin with. But you know it really. It's it's a process and But it's it's not like any other process so you know Yeah yeah i agree i. It's it's great. And i definitely don't regret any of it with do it again and so know we didn't really talk too much about what you don't need. You don't need everything else that we didn't mention in this construe. It's i mean. I think when it comes down to really Don't you don't need to try to like pre curate. Your baby's newborn experience beforehand because it's some other way exactly is the child as far as clothing goes you just need a few basic things in our on as far as sleep goes i need a nursery. You really you just need something for the child. Sleeps safely preferably in your room. Spend a lot of time one child your heart cloths white noise machine. A- carseat you do need a car seat. You're going to have this one thing for your kid to be in to face the back of the car for two years. You know so. I it's it's gonna be the same thing you just need to one. I'd say the only thing that you may need is like the infant insert at use it for my child while he was seven pounds One thing i do recommend i totally didn't realize it as your child goes up in clothes size. You need to adjust the straps on carseat. I not even embarrassed set because this is my first kid. And i didn't realize i had my child in the infant insert until he was two months ago and he would just get so uncomfortable. Let's my mother was like take out that newborn insert. He's my pork yet. Every time i get into that guards sami. We don't go anywhere so i didn't realize that you know he was too big for the infant insert. You only been the car seat. This is how three times i mean. This is how you find things out a lot of times as you look at the kidney. Like what what's going on with you. What's up back yesterday. So yes everyone knew. Parents like owed parents. If your child is going up in diapers you need to just straps on the. That's a good way to think about when your baby is getting chafe marks around the edges of the diaper. You go up on a diaper precise everything. It goes for everything. They wear their man. You hit the nail on the head when you said look like when you were in med school there was a like a child advocacy kind of part of the peach rotation i did and they showed people used to buy things off of You know Like magazine kind of catalogs came to your home and they just showed a picture of a catalogue That was like a newborn babies ru and they went through okay. There's all of the different decorations and stuffed animals and bumpers for inside the crib. All the stuff like which of the stuff is actually safe and which of the stuff to need and it was literally just the clip and that was it everything else. Yeah need any of that as it is not necessary. And don't worry yourself about all these little things more your child in those first couple months and especially once your baby start sleeping more there will be moments at which you're gonna turn over and you're gonna look at that little bassinet and you can be like i think i have to push you a little bit. I think after sort of like jabba with a finger because are you breathing. Are you away like calm and quiet. That doesn't nice to have lay hands on him. If you get an idea being to soundly so i feel like just sleep to sleep to sleep and then they finally start sleeping. You're like hey. Hey it's so true you'll get a feel for it. It's hard to to put into words but it's more it's more esoteric than that end. It will become more comfortable. You know they sell a lot of things Monitors things that hook up. Tear phone that. You put a little sock with a sensor on your baby and stuff like that. I think something to keep in mind is that they make medical devices you know and we as pediatricians and the people in the hospital will be taking care of your infant are aware of them and if your baby needs to go home with the monitor on them we will send them home with and how many times has actually sent a baby home with the monitor. His been several years at this point. Yes it very fast. Vast vast majority of babies do not need anything like that they alarm and they freak you out there not calibrated. There's there's a. There's literally no instance in which i would recommend those four apparent Any of the kind of things and if you look every single one of them has to say at least as the hammer recording this not. Fda approved this is not a medical device absolutely. Does things will drive you crazy they will. I remember Apparent to sit on having one of those monitors and she had about a week and came back and said this awful. Every time my child moves it goes off the gas. Not it's not like you said it's calibrated Kids they wiggle they move in so you know it's just it's not necessary unless it's necessary if it is necessary you will get. It wasn't when we do our rotations. And we're doing our newborn intensive care unit months. Those alarms with these beautiful high-tech calibrated machines. They go off when there's nothing wrong with the baby right. It's it's to do that so you know when there's something wrong and that's because there is a medical professional right there too. You don't leaves amazing nurses. Who worked with who could look and interpret. What does the baby look like. What does that alarm look like. Is that actually anything. They have to be worried about and these people are. These are people who are who are literally trained for this You know and a lot of those babies at graduated from neonatal intensive care unit. Didn't need those machines exactly. Who had been there for months. Twenty twenty five weeks and without a monitor. 'cause they don't try to stay off the internet light pregnant. That's so that's what i recommend. I'd recommend staying off the internet finding a prenatal class. You know talking to friends and family members who actually have children out. There will be your biggest support group in then you know once. The baby is out also limit your mouth of internet because it will it will make you think that your child has disorders. That child does not have. It's true you're you're you're about to have. Ideally you're about to have at least a couple of weeks if not a couple of months of literally not thinking about anything else you and that baby and what is happening. You'll have plenty of time to really break down what it is at all the minutia kind of stuff. So yeah well. I don't have anything else to add at this point we. We spoke for like an hour of thing. It's a little down a little bit. It's something that i was thinking You know Is that even though we are talking about these things and we have our outline and we try to talk about things relatively thoroughly There may be other questions that pop up And so on. Our website is our email you know and so if there's something from previous episode that you're like well what about this You know send us an email. We can try to just address the filling in blanks and the next episode for the epa to. Maybe yeah i like. I like it i think. Great because it's bama as a as you guys listen and learn more about philip nye. We are really just doing this. Podcast just for entertainment for ourselves. As as the sole purpose of this for us to entertain each other and we hope maybe two of you will download an episode. Thank you to both of those great idea. Please do something for yourself. Yes please email any questions or comments and definitely you know. Try to address them With the subsequent episodes that sort so yeah as as always though of course you know we are. We are pediatricians. We are not. Your child's pediatrician. Unless unless we are listening we probably aren't so really touch base with them. Yeah we're definitely not a substitute for for your kids doctor. And having a good relationship with them so so make sure to reach out from them if you have any real actual medical questions especially thanks for joining us today. Thank you everybody until next week.

AMT391: Video Phones, Scrumping Apples, and Going Over Niagara Falls in a Barrel

"Which sells came first. The dance all the french people use the lead ship. Shake when on shit talking about what child actors go through in horror films and whether it's traumatic And care is a report from former child. Actor matthew amazing content warning dead animals. Mattie says i had a special guest our credit on growing pains in extravagantly turgid ill-conceived and occasionally quite racist horror drama about scientists growing a fungus in his shed his some dies eating the fungus in a desperate bid to be noticed and later when the scientists adopts another boy the same age played by me the spirit of boy one returns to possess boy to of course another desperate bid to be knighted very consistent for child one. That's true that's what you do. You're a child. The the had chosen to poisonous fungus and then died. You'd think i'm going home. The adopted child of the bereaved. Father that i've left behind. Make sense nutty. Says i was twelve when we shot it. Was i exposed on the street trauma. Well in one scene the scientists discovers that all his experimental rapids have been savaged to death. By a rottweiler. Scary died boy. Played by me appears and we are led to believe the carnage was somehow brought about by his possessiveness for the earliest scenes. Belive lab rabbits had been plagued by some very cute. White fluffy bunnies allegedly obtained from an actual research nearby. I enjoyed playing with them in between takes. The cost assumed the props department was going to supply. Faith ted roberts with this scene but his the thing two dozen. Prompt roberts cost money so when i arrived on set the morning of the scene. Guess what was strewn about that. Upset me to just going to confirm with mounties two dozen eviscerated actual roberts with guts hanging out which i then had to act in the midst of for the next couple of hours it turns out dead things start smelling pretty rank quickly on the film rights And to actual goal is not enough for the camera. The spilled guts had to be augmented. The props team used a combination of kensington gore which is a trademark for fake blood and now is the generic term and sweetcorn to get the right effect. Well the the implication from that matthew might be that the animals died in vain because if you could fake their guts why bother killing them in the first place but presumably the fake blood only worked because you had the real rabbits there. I can see why the crew came to that decision with the budget. They had despicable though. It seems to modern tastes. Can you go to the butcher and get some rabbit skins and then some like sausage gains and stuff like that and then you kensington gore and your suite on. I guess they just thought we have some rabbits here but we have rabbis. It was the point of guns. The butcher and traumatizing some more rabbits. These already been traumatized under the lights because the bachelor dougherty peeling the rabbits know it's waste. Let's be honest matthew. What was the destiny for these rabbits in the first place. They might have had a nice day coming up on a hammer. Horace seen rather than you know just another day of having poisonous chemicals rubbed into their eyes mattie says did the experience woke me. It's certainly left an impression after the production wrapped. I went vegetarian for a couple of decades and seen still holds a prominent place in my memory. Forty years on but it does still shock me. How little care was paid to me. i'm sure that's very different now. Hey was the seventy s. We didn't know at my friend. Ben who is A a child psychologist and I know we'll be listening to this now because he listens when he runs high band. He said that he was listening to our upset last month and then happened to watch labyrinths that evening with his daughter and said that we were wrong when we talk about all the precautions that run. Because it's very obvious if you watch labyrinth again which i haven't fears that the the baby and that is obviously petrified and bawling his eyes out and screaming and i said no no no is because you know i don't know maybe they wanted him to cry because it's nice be scary because he's been kidnapped by the evil prince whoever it is So you know. Maybe they made his mom woke set for a minute and he's crying for that. I'm sure he's not crying. Because the puppets terrifying and ben was like now watch it. He's definitely terrifying. I looked it up to see whether the now man that was. The baby boy had talked about this and he has his name. Is toby food. And he's. He's the son of brian fruit. Who was the designer on the movie and the reason that they use him as the baby was because the original counting of the baby was so petrified. he couldn't even make it onto sat basically he couldn't handle it so then they got to do it because toby growing up in a houseful of pets and costume design wasn't as freaked out by some of the weird dismembered stuff flying around but apparently he was really scared of david bowie and did a piece in his lap. It's great claims of aim. I think but also that baby didn't consent to being in the film and couldn't consent to too young to enunciate whether the baby wanted to be an informal. Not so that feels a bit more messed up even than linda. Black is linda. Blair or jodie foster would have at least been aware of what was happening on the sets. They were acting in a baby. Well the good news is he has followed his father's footsteps and now works with puppets professionally. So obviously go over it well either over or it predestined his entire life in some way just constantly confronting that here. Here's a question from christian from richmond. Virginia who says i was recently out having an ideal fall after noon with my wife and inlaws apple picking at a local orchard. What a lovely scene between the four of us. We're filling two of the provided bags which will wait unpurchased while picking. I found it pretty natural to sample the product. After all i'd never had a courtland apple before might swell make sure. I like them before buying pounds of them. You're only a man christian. Who are you to resist the lure of a courtland testament courtland that did for humanity and says it was later in the afternoon and i haven't had lunch to all this first apple did was wake up my appetite yet there to that point my wife hadn't tried any of the apple herself so i asked her if i could take a freebie freebie that christian has decreed that my wife was adamant that already had one free apple and it would not be right if i had a second. I reason that everyone who goes to one of these. Pick your own. Orchards gets one freebie by christian rules. And if someone doesn't use it it should be transferable to another member of the party and as you say you haven't. He hasn't actually said that this was decreed by anyone other than himself. He invented these rules. Everyone called christian gets two free apples. Weird to then right into us and get asked to adjudicate on sunday. He's literally invented. So only am i the answer me. Is it okay to eat more than one free apple. When you're out one of these pick your own orchards. Especially when someone else in your party isn't going to have one these top two factor in a certain amount of waste into their prices. And i'm happy to pay for other products while i'm there. Cider doughnuts are the portraits address in addition to the masses of apple's on buying is it too much to have two apples g of course is find your on and orchard. I mean the apples a profit for them. You are buying the apples eight ten. Apple's it's fine but you're not stealing really well technically you're not. You're taking the thing for free that you would normally pay for. No no no no you. You've paid for the experience of picking and purchasing apples and built into that is christian suggests. I would say not. Only the each apple picks a free apple on the sly but that actually probably they factored in two or three. I mean it doesn't make any difference to that about money's difference if you went to the road and then sold them outside for half the price of the appalachian. that's a bit different but few personal consumption. I'd say yes. The unwritten rule is not as you say but rather eat as many apples. you live. well. I disagree although i think they probably know that this happens. Also that most people can't eat that many free apples. Well that's what i mean. Not free stolen. Apples is what i meant to say. If you had the capacity if one have the capacity to eat ten than okay. I wouldn't be saying. Eat ten apples. But what i mean. Facetiously is you're not going to eat and so it's fine. They know that you're gonna eat some apples both discount. When i was little we used to guy strawberry picking and i would eat some strawberries. And i still feel guilty about about decades later. Just because it's probably what the auto expects doesn't mean it's right only well actually having been quite so firm on this. I must say the closest experience of this recently is. We went to a pumpkin patch last week. I was actually really quite strict with with my son can only get one free pumpkin. We'd paid off five pounds to get in entitled him to pick a bumpkin we'd scoop out and then we'd put the face on. It was not appropriate for us to go back and get paid for and he was like just get them. And i said no you. We paid for one point. And i mean my head. I had the cancer argument that. I'm sure there are people who do that but actually i guess the difference for me there is that i know that those pumpkins are only really worth five pounds during that one week after when we were there pre halloween so that is going to affect the bottom line if we pick up to bumpkins. Where do you think for an apple. Orchard. i mean they fall on the ground again by worms. That is different. What it's like in the supermarket presumably account for both spoilage of goods. That don't get sold and things that get next and that goes into the price that you pay for the goods you buy. But that doesn't mean that it's okay to steal things from superstar allegiance scarring around seep mocking. Eating betsy like well. Yeah i figure that one sausage in each pack is my if christians wife was so concerned maybe she could at checkout offered to pay for those two apples in addition to the ones they bought and they would probably be like nasa fine but that would sway conscience and allow christian to have the to apple's yes they do have a good laugh about it afterwards but yeah it made you feel better. The thing that i disliked about the pumpkin patch was that this place. We gone to ladle the pumpkins on the patch and they had grown there at the farm. But you didn't get to pick yourself. You just went and got one. That makes a lot of sense. Why because then you're gonna be trumping over. Pumpkin patches probably still being grown here and also there's a vine feeds trip over there have to be quite widely spaced out a pumpkin thick stalk well. I don't know because they didn't get to do it. That's why i'm annoyed about michetti. I would not give michelle. I didn't vision myself with the pumpkin machete. Yes ant with your level of competence on a. They made the right decision now. Question voice from nate. I'm just standing watching. My dog have shit in my garden. And he's actually spent the last. I would say thirty seconds walking around the garden where he normally does he's offals sniffing around clearly deciding. Where shall i plant today's Produce and then settled on an area by looks of it now. He's he's having a he's having a pissed now at as well and to me this. What exactly is a dog doing when deciding whether to do shit because he does this every day. I was familiar with dogs marking territory. Yes transmitting news. Two other dogs with that piss. But are they doing that with their shit's as well. They are three hundred million factory centers in their noses so there are many many messages that they can send using urine and feces for example. It could be leaving an olfactory bowl like wolves marking territory which basically means to other dogs all they could be saying. I'm on the heat. Smell my lovely haiti shit. Come and find me. Smell the sexy pu. There's more where that came from. Boys provocative or it could just be a habit they learned as a puppy because as with humans you know very formative period for dogs if example your dog from a rehoming centre but the dog could growing up at the coast and they're always going to be looking something like sam to do crap in so that plays a role to g think humans also have just as many messages in our piss and shit but we lost the ability to interpret them. I think we've lost the interest. Me could be the new podcast. Oh god knows very dangerous. Don't it's always been striking to me. How indecisive dog seemed to be walls choosing a shitting place. Because he do well they they share here everyday. They must know whether good spots are. But i wonder whether it's just seeing if that pixel ship messages are still a strong or whether some of them need to be topped up with a fresh batch all which direction they're facing in Obviously helen you. You have yet to catch up all of your back issues of the scientific journal. Frontiers in zoology. How dare you say that back in two thousand fourteen. They publish the results of a study of seventy dogs which they conducted over two years watching thirty seven breeds. Shit one thousand eight hundred ninety three time if you enter party in someone's well what do you do. Shit for science. And the scientists discovered that dogs prefer to excrete with their body aligned along the north south access war avoiding east-west altogether is eating. Wow how do they know dogs magnetic. This isn't a free roaming environment so the dogs had the choice to go where they wanted they weren't they weren't influenced by walls or roads that would influence linear movement. But they don't know whether it's because they perceive the direction of the compass as a kind of haptic stimulus innately or whether it's possible they feel more comfortable. Lcd do that thing where they go round little circle several times before tucking themselves in for little sleep. I wonder whether that's also say that. They are correctly oriented. I suppose as well if we take. For granted that they are issuing a signal obviously. They're receiving messages to on that sniffing around trying to see what other dogs have left. It's their twitter. Explore tab ques- john. John young is a question from mark. Who says people used to go over niagara falls in a barrel so only unto me this. How did they survive. The didn't always nowadays today. The first person to do it did survive. And i was on the edson taylor. She was sixty three at the time. Wow although she was claimed to be in her forties but afterwards it was deemed that she was around sixty three thousand nine hundred one which just felt late to me like all of those patterns brown inches of rain barrels. Agricole's i had in my head is like eighteen fifty something. She wasn't the first one to try. I think she was just The first one to successfully do in a barrel she was a widow husband died in the civil war. I think the concept was. I need some money. How can i use the limited resources that i have to create a commercial opportunity for myself in this new world of Niagara where i'm intending to move. I know i'll shut myself falls in barrel. Frankly i'm bit blake this by do things. She probably thought you know if i die. What my losing. If i don't i'm going to i'm going to be a millionaire. Stunt is paved with gold. She wasn't didn't work out for she died in a pauper's grave and Last years were spent as a street vendor in niagara can close to that celebrity a bit like people who've worked for nasa walking around at cape canaveral talking tourists. But really you know. She wasn't the neil armstrong of that scenario she could have been sponsored by red bull though in later times right so she had a wooden pickle barrel and she had a leather harness inside it and load of cushions to break her for you know high tech and then there will these copycats so between her stunt nine hundred one nine thousand nine hundred five fifteen people went over. The falls and ten of them didn't die but these different modes of transport like jet skis and kayaks barrels. Well the jets in the kayak examples of the most recent ones and both. Those guys did die if you go back to the nineteen hundreds where people are watching the tight. Rope walkers on agra falls the the spectator psychology of that is basically. They might die. Isn't it which. I've always felt uncomfortable about even circus and stuff. Like yeah is amazing if someone achieves those. I really don't like that jeopardy of you could be about to watch someone plummet to their deaths. But there's a big spread. Isn't there like if you're watching a tightrope walker in the circus. Probably done it. Many many many many times already expert and second can be fairly confident that other feels like multiple payroll. It's not. I mean if you're watching so the guy who i did it with summer. Eighteen fifty nine. The great blonde down attack repacked. Who did a series of walks across the gorge at niagara falls and having survived the first walden. He then upped the stakes every time. I did it a bicycle than pushing a wheelbarrow then with his hands and legs bound in chains. And this is the problem that if you don't die the stakes get higher for every next person that has to try and do so in eighteen sixty seven. There was a lady called maria. spelt arena. Who cross niagara wearing woven baskets instead of shoes with their head covered by the bag. Why did she make her. She did make actually. Yeah but you know she. Equally could have not made it. And that's i've always found that. Then you uncomfortable that daredevil stuff like the real origin of the word daredevil is staring devil to take your soul right. it's like it's sort of quasi sport where you are acknowledging. It's likely you might die. And i've always felt uncomfortable watching that. None of us really have the devil instinct. Do these long proven. But also i think crossing on a tight rope whilst terrifying looking is not the same as throwing yourself off one hundred seventy five foot tall no sign. It works because if you that distance even into water that would like definitely kill. Why is it if you're if you're falling with the water and the water the flow of the water somehow slowing down people survivor and that would work work. It's it doesn't appear to be the interior because my obvious answer to that question would be well. It depends some of them. Have had rubber balls inside you know. Some of them have had special breathing. Apparatus some of them create special harnesses bash. If you go right back to that first woman who did it and actually came out. Basically bruises She just had as helen said some cushions. So so i think he's just luck about how the water carries you lots of weird things with water and gravity like if you just hit the right baseline surfing isn't it the right of the wave presuming. It's just not as intense. Annie edson taylor. When i wouldn't pickle baron as aforementioned in nineteen eleven there was the first man to go over the falls. He was a stunt man from the circus and he went down in an eight foot long. steel barrel which. I'm not sure. I'd prefer to a woods to tipping less buoyant and he broke his jaw and both kneecaps and spent six months in hospital though he did survive but then he went on tour around the world with his barrel But then in nineteen twenty six in new zealand. He slipped on an orange pill broke his leg and he died from complications. A couple of months later from the leg break and amputation assume that is the attitude of the daredevils limit. Know yes this particular thing. There's a fifty fifty chance. I live or die. But i'm also as likely at some point today something completely seemingly inconsequential. Yeah have you seen the documentary free solar about the guy who free climbs up things like the half dome in yosemite shitty with my wife because she watched it on netflix. Am i wanted to see it so now. I've got the time one evening to do without her. So no i haven't at ending. Its pointed to say he has that kind of jade where it's like. Yeah i might die. Whatever but it's who the people that facilitate them. That i understand 'cause i for one thing by whatever method you use nowadays going over niagara falls is illegal. Yes it's a huge fine. How much It's ten thousand canadian dollars or twenty five thousand usdallas i is it depends on with you on the candidate side or the us side. Who's with people that drop their someone. Most cases has to man a boat. And then push you off the boat just before the falls endangering someone by getting them place to the false. I'm not personally effectively. Is assisting suicide really on in the cases where the person doesn't live you. Could you could argue that manslaughter. Like yes they wanted to. But i met a lot of these people if you look back through their biographies now say they would not of sound mind when they did. Wow i was reading about John lewis as big rubber ball that he went down in in nine hundred ninety eight. It cost his life savings of fifteen hundred dollars. And it sounds like a swanky rubber ball lined with steel bands. Thirty two in a tubes to shock absorbers. The be in the middle way. He sat had an air cushion and valves with air. Tanks had forty hours of oxygen in cases trapped underwater and then Sixty eight vowed rubber in the button ballast. He did live in that he saw. Bits of the rubber ball. Is souvenir sir. Enterprising law of entrepreneurs doing this. Well you mentioned entrepreneurs helen. I think my favorite there is also the most depressing is william forsythe and eighteen. Twenty seven he was the owner of the pavilion hotel in niagara and came up with an idea. For terrific publicity stunt. Let's people really talking about our hotel when it comes to niagara falls. Nobody we'll do. Helen is by an emergent ship. Called the michigan will fill it with wild animals. And then we'll send it over niagara falls basically sending a z. I've a vote for death arc. That would be the hashtag now. In the ten thousand tourists turned up to see to baz escaped through the whole. Yes and then the live deaths of numerous buffalo raccoons and the survival of a single use. Wow did the best thing going. Fuck everyone off. That was responsible. I hope so.

Cold comfort farm reminded. Who's who's by that is by stella gibbons and it is a fun novel is kinda taking the piss out the pastoral novels at the twenties and thirties when there was a real into will trend for those whether like the land country so wholesome and healthy response to the traumas of the war. Okay so actually. Written in the fifties or something it was written in nineteen thirty-one and published in nineteen thirty. I'm okay okay. So contemporaneously taking the pace of other novels. That were doing the country thing. And it's set in west sussex on a farm barrel quite nineteenth century and then there is a london interloper called flora post. Who's an orphan who's gone to live with these distant relatives who is trying to bring them into mo-modern types. That's the stick well. Meredith has enjoyed the book helen. You'll be pleased to know although she says i was a bit. Let down by the ending within purgatory. The whole time. Is that what happened. Well that's an interesting interpretation But there's one part that really threw me off to characters. One in london one in sussex a having a phone conversation. No quote thanks. Claude twisted the television dial and amused himself by studying. Flora's fair pensive face. She could not look at him. Because public telephones were not fitted with television. Dials can't say just to recap you've got someone could claude on. The who also has video access to flora. Who's on a public telephone cannot secret because nyc videos in public fence jalenandjacoby. This what the hell. There is no other indication that this book is science. Fiction takes place in any other time. The normal nineteen thirties. England and yet a video phone is just dropped in like everyone knows that videophones are thing. So what's going on. You say there's no other indication meredith and to be fair to you. I had read this book several times and not thought. Oh this isn't actually set at the time it's written but it isn't anchor it set in the future and there were few little clues like someone sort refers to clark gable's peak as having been twenty years ago whereas actually thirties were his peak. Does the mention of the anglo nicaraguan wars of forty six even though the book was printed in one thousand nine hundred eighty two and there were these other things like maitha is a slum even though it was very post then still is now. Railways are in trouble because private citizens taking air taxis everywhere and have their own planes so it's subtly indicating the actually it's so of science fiction so so of light. Russell davis's years and years isn't it. I we episodes of that where you don't notice that it's the future and then suddenly something happens and also like when you're reading it now you dislike novel and so you just pick to them in one thousand nine hundred eighty skull because you don't have the context that video phones were uncommon at the time although in fact ever since the phone was patented in eighteen six videophones had also been in the conversation about phones and typically in the twenties there was a lot of research and development on the maty and t were really trying to get them started and by nineteen thirty day had a two way television phone system that was like in experimental use but the first public videophone wasn't till nine hundred thirty six but the whole time that phones had existed the had been michael of public splashes about videophone just around the corner. You know how things are now like space tourism like in six months first tourist based flights so it was like that stella gibbons probably would have known about that concept and i guess the point of was not only to be like this is the future but to make these rural characters who lived in as like quite on modernized ways still used a twig to do that washing up even a sponge or brush to make them seem even more backward in comparison. Yes it's a fascinating thing to consider particular portrayal videophones in popular culture because they are such an obvious concept. Whether it's dick tracy with his smartwatch two thousand one space odyssey calling back to earth. It's an obvious thing that in the future people would want to be able to see as well as here people and all of that popular culture was created a time. people could hear people telephonically. So it's not a huge imaginative leap. And yet the the realities of how video phone has actually now arrived. I e in all our pockets on smartphones in the developed world was never really portrayed so if you watch two thousand one base to see it looked futuristic in actual two thousand and one so was ahead of it by by thirty years but now we have video. Finding twenty. Twenty looks incredibly dated. Because it's like a boost with physical buttons but it's fascinating to think that it was being considered desert the nine hundred thirty s. What is being considered in the eighteen. Seventy s i mean. I know because it's a bit of disney trivia. Actually the one of the first video failures in nineteen sixty four. There was actually available for the public to us because it was at disneyland. So you could. You could call from disneyland to the world's fair and that was hugely popular as you'd expect because the people that are in disneyland in the world's fair were there to see kind of thing buckle tourist attraction and then it was an amazing bang to say but then when i think it was. At and t. Then rolled out Into kind of places that went from policies. I think one in new york grand central station in one in chicago or something that to actually do it was hugely unpopular. Because it was so fucking expensive like it costs something like in modern cash about two hundred quid to to make a two minute coal which you had to book in advance and then the other person will be sitting in the train station waiting for it. Just seen as a a huge waste of money. That is a great bbc adaptation of cold comfort farm in nineteen ninety five and starred. Kate beckons sale in her breakout role. And also just like all the actors in mckellen has a five minute role. Anything who in wasted mckellen these days refer seals in it. Stephen fry the cost is really stacked. And it's all available on each abe and it is very comforting. It's pretty fun. But in that they don't really make reference to the science fiction elements of the book. It just looks like the thirties. People addresses flappers and stuff. I wonder if that's a good way to future. Proof your book. Then yeah certainly twenty years in the future so that people at the time thinking is really cutting edge and if your predictions right that in twenty years time people read it and they think oh yeah. They're still feels relevant. And then in the future when people do as a period drama. They've lost the distinction between the time that you wrote it in twenty anyway. Yeah maybe i suppose because technology does date really badly. Maybe that's why people. When i come out they don't necessarily explicitly show them in everyday dramas for several years. But yeah maybe you're right but then in this is like well if you're talking about this other war actually. There was a much more plausible. Major will the they might have predicted at this time but not wanted to casual anti semitism. That feels like significant of its time. You're probably not so popular in the nineteen fifties. That i wonder how many other things that people don't realize science fiction. Yeah oliver twist people realize but Fagin was running a spaceship before. Baby named dotes com.

So it's autumn. We're making apple pie and we're wondering why when you bake the pie crust with no filling in it. It's called blind baking. The closest thing we could find was that. It's a mistranslation from french term. But we couldn't find anything conclusive that ms translation of french term. Seems purely speculative. The french phrase for blind baking is queer a blunk which literally means to bake white and maybe they misheard bunk as blind. Which i don't buy it blind. Baking is when you bake the bottom of a tall apply where it's just the pastry filling in yet unusually piece of paper in and way down with a dried beans coins stones from the beach where you can get These special little limb fake baking beans and does this process apply. Whether you're making saverio sweet pie. Let's just say that the bottom of it isn't soggy. The simplest explanation for why that is blind. Baking is that when you've covered the pastry with weights and paper. You can't see it. Yes you can't tell whether it's cooks your when you can't see whether it's turned a little bit golden years have to guess and there's so much in baking that so precise and scientific isn't that imagine that practitioners of baking which i'm not one would differentiate that skill because you're more of an artisan if you can do that. You're not just following a recipe. You have to use your innate abilities. Yeah well another explanation. People have is that it's blind baking because if you're a professional pastry chef then you can tell from smell with the pastry is done to the extent you needed to be done in the blind baking not with is with smell. The last explanation that i've seen is plausible but less plausible than the other ones is that there's another meaning of the word blind which is like something being closed off or empty so like In engineering a blind hole is a hole. That doesn't go all the way through something like it will have a sealed end or some other. Look at blown dolly. Yeah so the pie is tenuously. Liked that you're baking. The base thing is blocking the pipe. i'm not sold on it. I think it's better than the ring. Blunk is another question of food from kate who says only answer this. Why hasn't there been a vegetarian. Vegan contestant on. I'm a celebrity. Get me out of here. They seem to old tuck into the jungle. Fair quite willingly are they starved. To the point where they will lead to anything or do they specify only meat eaters can apply interesting. Used to would apply. isn't it. I imagine the process. Is you call round the agents of the people you really want. And then he went over the people that they focus. Fm application such there have been vegetarian and vegan contestants on i miss liberty. What's interesting though. Kate is that as you say most of them end up eating the anus. Anyway is this program available everywhere. Do a lot of people don't know what we're talking about where celebrities have to live in a jungle two weeks eat grubs in order to win popularity. It's germany because i know they film that version straight after the british version on the same set. And it's also in the us although only sporadically and has never really been a huge hit because they had survivor. That's basically the same per naked and afraid as well which it is known celebs right but basically it's a game show where celebrities go to jungle usually. Although this year it's going to be a castle in wales because of covid mice well stella kasese ended up in all kinds of trouble. They make you a comparison. Sounds all right. Can't group holiday big brother but with no central heating essentially like a country house murder mystery. It'd be like and then but anyway. Paul of the crucial dna success is supposed to supposed to be kinda sheldon. Freud element like this person thinks there are hoity toity politician but look jojo they have to testicle but also an element of kind of once you get inside with the people because you've been following them for a week in reality format and all that game for laugh really you know. They used to be dictator. But right really And part of that part of the process of winning yourself. The public apparently is by putting various revolting foods into your mouth grubs testicles fish is that kangaroo penis lended rats tails that sort of stuff but no people eat grubs and fish is just phenomenal. So is there are kind of english like oh yes i think so. This is just a real snobbery event. Veton crickets admittedly. It was an item multiple cast by have eaten crickets and they tasted fine. Quickest which teacups asa major protein source in indigenous australian food so british celebrities australia. Eating them shouldn't be such a like of upset but anyway so yes there have been for. Example flurry. east is vegan say is vegan. They both took part in two thousand eighteen but was interested. They did both these groups and stuff is part of the show which suggests to me. It's the one thing that i don't like about watching it. They're really want to do this stuff. They're doing because they're so desperate to be popular and identified that if they don't take part in that round of the show which is the most popular than they themselves might not be popular and that desperation is what i find really uncomfortable about watching it. There are challenges where we don't have to eat stuff on there ones where you can have like rats calling all of your body that kind of thing. Yeah and if you think about it actually. There have been older celebrities that are excused from some of those physical ones. They will say in the voice. I've recovered declined to dangle himself off the side of a camper van because of preexisting medical conditions. So that you know you are excused on medical grounds from centene challenges and theoretically the show's producers will allow weakens to do that. But i actually haven't taken the option shop because on the is vegan and ditched her diet for the show and was then really really sick because she was eating meat not the kangaroo testicles but just the camping food just because she had meet fridges oh they supposedly obtaining all of their own food as well as part of the excise or is it supplied by crew. No no they win the food. So that's the again the horror element of the format. Is you win the gold stars and then if you get enough gold styles you feed. The camp of the drama comes from if you've gone to perform the task because you haven't put enough mouse legs daniel houses than your your campaign will start that night. Another the food is supplied by the production team apart from when they go rogue and then they get in trouble said gena to camp in trouble cooking and eating rats that he found on the come the camp they can't he's gonna get some diseases from the rap meat because they haven't supplied it just an rsp. Australia we're like danica wild animals because the animals they eat on the set as part of the games are animals breads onset specifically for that purpose. I mean really. What's the distinction there like. If anything. it's the only part of the show that was authentic. It was put chef in the wilderness. Yeah he gets to kill an animal anita by space. You don't want him to kelani an animal that is either endangered or venomous is clearly either. Yeah but he might be like. Oh maybe this australian radin. It's a platypus which score poisonous keel. Spa you'd have to be identified the most plots the people going on celebrity martin abroad. Maybe know that good australian fauna. We have a friend who used to produce come dine with me and she said the affair in vegetarians would cook meat because they thought i had a better chance of winning so i was wondering whether similar there as well just in reality. Tv vegetarians fill like things awaited against the victory. Well it's a problematic show to pure vegan for ethical reasons It's not just eating. The animals is it. There's challenges where you have to stamp on rodents to get through admob tunnel away or they'll just drop things on your face. You're just about them out. The way and they get injured hurt doing that. Like the animals probably die. But it's not very nice for them other challenges that don't involve other living creatures. A toll not really no. I can't think of any because there's there's always a tank of crickets or something that gets you know. Your pants is the joke. It's interesting this stuff about the Dedicated bug breeding factory onsite though on average for each series of up to get me out of here when it's in australia. They two hundred and fifty thousand cockroaches. One hundred fifty. Three thousand crickets two point. Five million meal worms four hundred spiders five hundred rats and thirty snakes. Breeding cockroaches fails counterintuitive. Right what about the congress whose penises nina says. They now i think those are byproducts of kangaroos that have been slaughtered for me elsewhere. I'd be very surprised. If it was in the business of breeding kangaroo so it could be killed for cases to beaten by lisa knows maybe my lords ladies and gentlemen i am the crown jewels you might know me as a euphemism for testes and wang pipe but helen montsame this. Did you know that in my day job. I'm actually the queen's fancy. His question from alad and bath from bristol. Who say best friend of ours is getting married next month. hellos this. What on earth is the logic of having to post your wedding notice in the local town hall before you can get married. Do people have complained. And if so what happens next in wedding license away. We're intrigued as it feels like such ludicrously outdated process. It is like a lot of things to do with weddings. Yeah particularly in england and wales where there are so many specific laws about where you can get married and by whom they mean. The civil wedding bands is inside the wedding bands that they read out in church. You're going to have to talk me through it because you had to do that. But actually my wife. And i even got married in british territory. Gibraltar's different so we didn't do this. So what do you have to do when you say you're gonna get married. You have to go to your local register office bromley register. I firmly beat for bromley. And you have to have lived in that registration district for at least seven days before going to be a resident of the place. We still have to go and do it does not to be the one where your marriage is taking place but you have to have booked the ceremony in and you have to go at least twenty nine days before your ceremony. Because that's when they post the marriage listings basically think of it as a timeout for upcoming marriages. And you have to take with you documents. The to provide you need passport birth certificate. Now that'd makes sense by the way doesn't it. Yeah siblings yeah You need proof of address like a bill. If you've been married before you have to take proof divorce all nomin or of your previous spouse's death crime if you're not from here you have to take immigration documents as well but why do you have to post it outside on the board so if people are like oh i know that this person is a bigamist or i know that this person is a blood. Relative of this person is actually underage. They can say i mean jonah who actually looks at them when people get it done in church. It's right out three services in a row so it's a lot easier in a church to be like what all he's getting married but he's married to my sister yes. It feels like a sort of hangover from the parish. Model of life. Doesn't that you go into someone's name on the church door and be like well. That person's already married. Yeah and that makes sense. I guess still in small villages where the is still at the center of village life. Even if you're not religious just because that's where you go for your playgroup coffee morning he who's going to turn hall if you're on a day out in bromley and want something read going to register office go. Why isn't it online helen. That's the obvious thing. Isn't it like okay. Yes do on the town hall for tradition fine but somewhere where people might actually see it. An awful lot of things about weddings in england are surprisingly paper-based. So like when we were getting married and we have to get married outside even though that doesn't really happen in britain like outside venues and not licensed because they lock your marriage in a book and they can't risk the book getting wet. Because that's the wedding. If you put it online it would start to represent a privacy. She wouldn't it. And it seems like the electoral register but gemelli dot of information about our lives not on the internet and in the public domain does have things that you address on a common information information's in the in the marriage announcement probably even says like son of signs right. There's a lot of personal information now that you wouldn't want them just to show that on twitter. Yeah and every tweet if this is a low for marriage kind of thing. I'll say stookey but i wonder. Are there any examples in the twenty first century of a wedding being scuppered as a result of a town hall notice being posted. Because if they're on that is obviously just ridiculous thing to do isn't it. It's such a long time since i read. Take a break magazine. But that's because i've always really wanted to interview someone who's been jilted at the altar. I think that's fascinating and you only ever hear the take a break version. But i wonder what it's like twenty years later when you look back on it. You know still quite painful. Yeah but wouldn't it be fascinating to hear that story. I've tried a few times to case study and it's surprising berea during how relatively rarely that actually happens in drama all the time but people generally owns jilted at the altar. They cancelled their wedding the day before. That's mitt different. And i wonder if in reality it just doesn't happen. I've always wondered you know in that situation. Where the vicar says is very well anyone husni lawful impediments. Speak have and someone says yes. This person was married to me like hedges that person find out and get to the wedding and maybe is through this process of like. Oh i'm not gonna say into the registry office. I'll just turn on the day sacred love drama of exactly max out my and my wedding video. I suppose also needed to give people the tight like in jane eyre they may have been pretty slow journey to get there in order to disrupt the wedding twenty nine day ride for Yeah exactly. I think it's okay to give a spoiler for two hundred year old. Well that brings us to the end of this episode of aunts.

Befitting that this intrepid little and she wasn't intrepid little. I don't know if you watch when she was released back into the wild but it was kind of funny. I know i'm anthropomorphized. Could almost see rocky. This little outgoing. He know the digs are pretty good here. The food's good the people are nice. I could fly away and take chances in the wild. Or maybe i should just stay here and hang out and just be the mascot brock. You probably didn't have the capacity to think that deeply about the situation but finally flew off and perched into a tree but yeah vice president marketing frontier airlines tyrod square saying entirely. Befitting that this intrepid little be honored on one of our tails. Each of our animal. Tales has a back story rockies.

On the tails the northern saab wet towel originally thought to be a male. Well that explains was dubbed rockefeller rocky. For short after it was discovered last week by a worker setting up the towering christmas tree in the hatton rocky made the one hundred and seventy mile journey from upstate. New york to the big apple in that does seventy five foot. Norway spruce no wonder rocky was well. Let's say feathers all ruffled. After that journey the bird was taken to raven spirit wildlife center in the hudson valley. Where well she signed. It was an epicurious delight for rocky.

She's rehabilitator well. She held the winsome raptor aloft in field against the backdrop of rounded mountains in a video posted on ravens facebook page rocky sits quietly again. I think rocky was considering options to be honest with you rocky sits quietly on his fingers before we her way over to a nearby grove of pines ravens veered wildlife center said in a facebook post with video of her really seriously. Fire up the google and watch this because it's something other than all of the angst and all of the suffering and all of the revolving door guidelines and restrictions and lockdowns and closures of covid nineteen and not minimizing covid nineteen and my heart goes out to anyone who has lost a loved one of friend whatever the case may be to covid nineteen. It's just so nice to have something that makes you smile so again find that video online because rocky oh she. She's just door but ravens beard. Wildlife centers said in a facebook post rockies. Release was sex as success. She's a tough little bird and we're happy to see her back in her natural habitat. We are sure rocky will feel your love and her support through her journey south.

The rockefeller center christmas trees. Five miles of lights will be illuminated. The add ceremony Actually today wednesday december second. So call that little saw wet towel rocky or perhaps a rocket but she certainly a rockstar. Now's the rockefeller christmas tree. How is now forever immortalized shaking her tail feathers on the tail of a new frontier airlines plane. If only they would let you carry on something bigger than a child's backpack. But i digress. Six thirteen now thirteen ten. Kfi gay thirteen ten kfi a dot com northern colorado's voice. All right got a lot to get to this morning. This has the colorado general assembly as expected passes that a virus aid and well republicans falls short in their attempts to curtail governor polices authority With his mandates send all of his edicts will get into that in just a few think speaking of that ever revolving door of changing guidelines and restrictions. Well did you hear the cdc just announced that it's going to reduce the length of its recommended. Quarantine following covid nineteen exposure. So we're gonna get into that as well. Oh and that monolith that we've talked about for the past couple of days. Yeah it's on the move. What the details coming your way in. Just a few closing in on six fifteen. Now thirteen ten. Kfi kfi here mornings with gail weekdays. Six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Inside the bear's den presented by christmas agency allstate insurance tuesday nights northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi a well. The montana live on the move. You know for any animate object. This monolithic share has some peripatetic tendencies. Six twenty one now thirteen ten. Kfi a thirteen ten k. f. k. a. dot com northern colorado's voice mornings with gail from the auto collision specialists duty. As just in case. You thought the story of that mysterious metallic monolith not to be confused with the noblest couldn't get any weirder. Well just remember. It is twenty twenty after all and anything's possible. So after that discovery and subsequent disappearance of that monolith in the middle of the utah desert earlier this month. Well we told you yesterday that a similar object was found in romania. Well it's also vanished. A structure that appears to be almost identical to the one in the utah desert that while disappeared. was found in romania on november. Twenty six this according to the mirror but well it didn't stay very long. I guess it had places to go and things to do. People see this. According to a report yesterday by reuters after it was discovered again on november twenty. Six that romanian monolith disappeared just four days. Later it was about ten feet. Tall disappeared overnight as quietly as it was erected just last week this according to journalists Robert is sub of the ziara piatra. Local newspaper of him saying that correctly to my romanian friends no disrespect intended. Certainly journalists went on to say an unidentified person apparently a bad local welder. Sounds as though he's passing judgment on the model it don't judge butts an unidentified person apparently bad local welder made it now. All that remains does for small hole covered by rocky soil. Now you remember when utah's department of public safety i found. Well what many likened to Two thousand one. A space odyssey esque monolith. People wondered whether it had been the work of aliens. Course we always go to that right. Must be the work of aliens or perhaps it was artwork by sculptor. John mccracken unfortunately unless someone donated that monolith couldn't have been recent work by john mccracken because he died in two thousand eleven still. Don't know all the answers who ultimately removed the utah structure. Oh but this is a definitive source. You've got some users on read it. I love when people use read it as a factual sources. Don't you always well. i read it on. Read it. And i'm like oh well it must be true them but you had some reddit. User speculating the monolith could have been a leftover westworld prop or as previously mentioned. Perhaps a mccracken piece now in a statement last week we told you yesterday. Officials from the bureau of land management and utah said. Yeah that monolith is gone. But they don't know who took it they certainly didn't remove it at least that's their story and they're sticking to it. We have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure referred to as the monolith has been removed from the bureau of land management public lands by an unknown party. The statement said no. We didn't do it. Bureau of land management did not remove the structure which is considered private property. We do not investigate crimes involving private property. those are handled by the local sheriff's office. And i'm sure the look of sheriff's office offices all over that one but i the monolith disappears from utah then magically reappears in romania for days later after it was discovered it appeared again waldo so weird. You think it'll turn up next ryan kelly behind the glass at the communists morning. Now we were talking about this story just a little while ago and you said that someone said that they think it might turn up in south africa's that right correct why south africa knows who know twenty. Twenty could really happen at this point. Yeah this model seems to have a mind of its own booked in busy around the world. is that aliens. Maybe the could be The monolithic mystery continues six twenty six now thirteen. Ten k of k a thirteen ten k. f. a. dot com northern colorado's voice mornings with gail via the auto collisions specialist studios. All right this kind of interesting. We were talking a little bit about this yesterday as we had black friday sales cratering. Were you out on black friday shopping. Was it in your estimation. Your opinion was it like a typical black friday. I think the one good thing about this year's black friday was the fact that we didn't see the endless video of all the brawls in the big box stores over electrtonics and you know the big screen. Tv's that seem to be well kind of a dull roar this year. But we're you out shopping. And was it pretty quiet. Was there a lot of social distancing going on did you stand in long lines Did you were there counters. That's what i always find. I dunno i understand why they have to do it. Because they have the capacity limits in stores due to covid nineteen. But don't you kinda got a little bit creepy as you're walking into a store mast of course and observing all the social distancing rules and there's somebody standing there with a clipboard and counting in fact my husband and i went to a big box store Just a few days ago. I think it was right before thanksgiving and walked in and we watched the customer in front of us. Go in through the double doors into the store itself and the gal manning the clinton clipboard at the door said i'm sorry we are at our capacity limits. So you're going to have to wait until somebody leaves. And i had to laugh because she's talking to us. Oh enterprising intrepid customer behind us son opportunity and made a bright for it and made a bee line behind us right to start. I'm like wait wait did you. But what's interesting is if you look at the sales coming out of black friday well they kinda taint kinda. Yeah that would make me the mistress of understatement here. Actually black friday traffic in stores down fifty two percent this as online shopping. Hit a brand new record even on black friday but the cyber monday numbers are in falling short of the projection but still posting a record at ten point. Eight billion with a b. Ten point eight billion dollars so it begs. The question is every day now. Cyber monday during well. What many are terming. The virus holiday shopping season. Are you spending way too much time shopping. Online six twenty nine now thirteen ten. Kfi tell you what we're going to check in with. Dr michael butler. He's a public policy. Analyst economics experts and a professor of finance at stockton university in new jersey. Dr bustle joins us. This morning to break it all down at six thirty five closing in on six thirty now. Thirteen ten k f k code now weekdays at four northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi k. After mornings with gale's stay tuned. For the dan patrick show the whole show. And the herd with colin cowherd only in thirteen ten k. k. Could spend a palooza over black friday and of course Cyber monday begging the question. Well how do you get more. And more more than many of us are out all of the restrictions lockdowns relative to covid nineteen. What else are you going to do when you're stuck at home you're gonna shop until you drop six thirty six now thirteen ten. Kfi a thirteen ten k. f. a. dot com northern colorado's voice mornings with gail via the auto collision specialists studios now black friday traffic down. Actually cratering fifty two percent but online shopping on cyber monday through the roof posting a record now fall short of projections but posting a record at ten point. Eight billion dollars. Dr michael butler is a public policy analyst economics expert and professor of finance at stockton university and new jersey. Doctor welcome back to the show. Good morning gail. Thanks for having me as you know. It's always my pleasure to be and it's always my pleasure to have you on the show because your insights are always spot on. So did you get into the shopping frenzy on black friday and cyber monday No i like Many other americans didn't shop on cyber on the black friday the way we normally do So really what. What happened is Amazon really started a new way of buying years ago when They started with their online shopping. And over the years Americans have been shifting more toward online shopping and less toward brick and mortar stores and even before the virus hit many shopping centers for instance. Where having trouble some of them have a close. Some of them have been retrofitted to try to do something else that we were having the problem before the virus started as a problem with brick and mortar shopping. Now once the virus started and everybody had to be In indoors for a while there. We couldn't go out even today. There's many restrictions so they retailers New the importance of the fourth quarter the christmas buying season because most retailers on average do about forty percent of their annual sales in the fourth quarter of the year so around the christmas season. So it's very important for them. So what they said was look People aren't coming to the malls not coming to the shop. Some of the shops can't even open So what we're going to have to do is start encouraging more Online shopping and instead of having just one day like a black friday or cyber monday really in the beginning of november Most of the online retailers started their Big big sales and as a result of that People are getting more comfortable as you say the they're sitting home and people like to shop. I guess when you're sitting home and even people that hadn't been buying much online you realize we're going to have to do this and then ask that happened. They said you know this. This really is a pretty good thing. I don't have to go to the mall. I don't go to the store especially for goods. That i buy routinely. I don't have to touch feel it. I know exactly what. I'm i'm getting So that really encourage more online shopping. Now i'll tell you the the Question mark here is what's going to happen. After the virus is no longer a problem i mean will the new normal look like and exactly right are people gonna continue to say You know this online shopping worked out pretty well for me. Say me a lot of time and effort. I just type it a few things on the laptop and the next morning the product is right there on my friends step. So are people going to say. Let me continue to shop like that or are people going to say boy This online shopping's okay. But i really need to go out and socialize and look at things and really Shop the way i used to. So we're not real sure what's going to happen After the viruses finally no longer a problem and you have to wonder going to ask you to pop on your karnak hat here but this virus has impacted us on such a multitude levels. I mean physically emotionally mentally and you have to wonder if you were if you were a betting. Man dr butler. Would you say that we are going to return. Today's of old where we get out and socialize or Stewart barney as long said that this is the ice age of retail. Do you see that continuing or is that gonna thaw well I think somewhat it will continue however People need to socialize. They need to mix with other people they need to talk to other people And i think that's really what's been hurting a lot of people that look. There's big increases and Anxiety depression drug abuse alcohol abuse even suicide. It's up to people are just getting depressed about not being able to socialize so we're not sure what the new normal will be But it will be some between brick and mortar and online. I don't think The amount of online sales were saying. Now i don't think that's going to continue to grow as quickly. It will continue to grow but not as quickly as it has under this Virus and i think once The viruses filing no longer a problem. I it looks like probably by springtime. We should have Control of this. Some of these vaccines are on the verge of being approved. I think yesterday the pfizer drug was approved in England a week or so away from that happening here. Well once vaccines get get out and people can take them and you know that might be march or april until sixty. Seventy percent of the population is available to take but by then we should have the virus under control. People will then start to feel. I think a little more comfortable about going out and trying to return to a normal life however they did realize the convenience of shopping online so there will be a different mix between online shopping and bricks and mortar. In other words. You have some people who may be bought very little online and did ninety percent of their shopping bricks and mortar. Will that may change a little bit. Maybe the only do fifty to sixty percent of their bricks and mortar other. You know forty to fifty percent Online again a remains to be seen. I don't think brick and mortar. Retailing is going to go away but it will be scaled down somewhat. And how much will just have to wait and see. dr micheal. Bus public policy analysts professor finance at stockton university new jersey where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in finance and economics. You know what's amazing to me and this is just an aside. And maybe i'm getting off the weeds but you're used to that by now look over a very relatively short in geologic time short period of time nine months and as a result of all of the mixed messaging when it comes to covid nineteen the restrictions the guidelines the lockdowns. How quickly our habits have changed. Do you find that surprising at all. It is somewhat surprising how quickly but given the severity of the virus. And what's even more peculiar is the way that government reacted to this virus. Look we've had viruses before that have killed large numbers of people not to play that down. That's obviously a tragedy. Club defected a large number of people with a fairly large number of fatalities yet. We still lived our life. Normally this is the first time where the government has Forced us to essentially completely shut down the economy for a time period And even when we were allowed to open we're only allowed the partially open so so this is kind of a whole new thing And the whole new government reaction And based on that. I think that The american public is not really sure how to take this. I mean according to the government. This looks like it's You know a real tragedy that if we don't take drastic action could wipe out the country. Some people are starting to feel like that. So once you get something that that's severe People will take action to react to that that perhaps they haven't taken before and i think that's that's what's happening here. Well and i think the hypocrisy and the mixed messaging factoring into the mix as well. I mean You've got governor newsom for example Gavin newsom in california. I mean a edging perilously more close to shutting down the state once again. Meanwhile i believe he's up in napa valley. Yuck it up with his friends at this tony restaurant. I think it was called french laundry then. You had denver mayor michael hancock right before he gets on a plane to go his family to celebrate thanksgiving in mississippi. He's tweeting out. Oh stay at home. Protect yourselves protect your loved ones. Don't gather for thanksgiving and they wonder why covert fatigue has set in and they wonder why so many are bucking against these edicts and mandates. That really irks people when Government tells you to do something and essentially saying do this. This applies to you but it does not apply to me I live in new jersey. As you mentioned. We have the same issue here. Governor murphy has taken a very strong position. He's decided to treat the entire state the same way. Even though the northern part of the state of new york city area had a much different experience than the southern part of the state. Where i live yet. He's treated the whole state. The same way caused huge economic problems. I live along the jersey shore and we need the businesses here. Need to Survive they need to do their business in about six months of the year. Roughly easter to labor day. And he's had the economy here either completely shut down or seventy five percent Shutdown and we have not had nearly the severi in cases that they have had in North jersey yet even though he did all nat Literally the day after. He takes some strong action. He was caught at a restaurant with a lot of people with no face masks and more than ten people. So the hypocrisy of that. I think as you correctly mentioned. I believe is contributing to this virus. Fatigue that that people are feeling. I mean our government leaders are supposed to set an example. They say this is what you should do. They should do it too. And then people will believe that there's more credibility and what they're saying and these government leaders say well you do all this and i'm gonna do whatever i want. You know that really undermines the credibility and leads to that virus well and we're seeing a restaurant. Rebellion in several counties throughout colorado. This is over. Twenty counties have been moved to Code red is i referred to it on the state to cova dial the ever revolving cova dial because it level red used to be the top level on that dial will no now. They've added level purple level. Red wasn't bad enough but these twenty counties moving into this level read while as a result. It's closed their doors once again to indoor dining and they're fighting back yeah It's starting to happen here in new to As the governor continues these strict rules and the restaurants particularly in areas where the virus is not that big of an issue These restaurants are starting to fight back In the summer here the restaurants got creative as they they could. You couldn't They outlawed outlawed indoor dining so they went to the city and they said listen. We need to shut off. Part of the street and part of the side will put tense up and sort of put there that had to do that to get by. I'm worried About the number of small businesses mostly in the hospitality industry restaurants and things the number of small businesses. That are not gonna make it through this. You could see that there was a study done here in new jersey. That said up to one third of restaurants could go out of business permanently So it's a bad thing. We need to get over this. We need to balance the risks of the virus versus the risks of economic collapse. And come up with something that everybody can can live with well. It's fascinating is many of these restaurants that are bucking This edict mandates from governor jared police and remaining to their own peril because now you've got the covert enforcement squad coming in and yanking liquor licenses for some of them But what's interesting is if you look at the data and this is what many restaurant owners say here in the state is i'm sure they're saying around the country if not the world. The data doesn't support that the spread is emanating from restaurants and bars and in fact we just saw that coming out of texas where eighty fifty five percent of the positives were coming from people. Shopping at big box stores right. That's the big box stores that were allowed to stay open during this thing. Yeah well what happened. Is those big box. Stores like walmart and target That they sell food so because they sell food they were deemed essential and they could stay open and sell everything else. The small businesses who who only concentrated on what their product or service was they had to shut the hell so walmart and target their profits are skyrocketing and all of these small businesses are on the verge of collapse. It really is not fair. Especially the vast majority of new jobs are created by small business. So you wipe out small business and you're wiping out a lot of entry level jobs for people that really need those those jobs that we need to find a a better balance. What they've done here and in most states what they've done is not right And a better balance would lead to better outcomes absolutely it's more about nuance than it is taking that sledgehammer approach dr michael bus public policy analyst economics expert professor finance at stockton university. Thank you as always for your time your insights this morning. Where can we learn more about you and your work so on twitter you can follow me at 'em bus ler that's at ambi.

The country's public health establishment admitted. It has tortured your children for eight months for no apparent reason. What's so ever her. This is when dr anthony fauci said this past sunday. Close the bars keep. The schools open is what we really should say. Yeah found cheap. Finally admitted what well so many have known for so long that the schools need to stay open for the emotional social. The educational wellbeing of our kids value went on to say. Obviously you don't have one-size-fits-all then why do they keep hitting us with one. Size fits all edicts and mandates and guidelines that keeps changing but as she said in the past the default position should be to try as best as possible within reason to keep the kids in school or get them back to school. If you look at the data the spread among children and from children is not really very big at all. Now i get it science by. Its very nature changes. We understand that as more information becomes available well as using the scientific method act accordingly and react accordingly. But why is it that we see that sledgehammer as i alluded to earlier that sledge hammer approach on so many levels of The shutdowns the lockdown the guidelines that are being issued with wild abandoned by public officials instead of a nuanced approach. That takes that into account that this is not a black and white scenario that you have to take a look at individual counties and individuals states and individuals situations before you issue issue these blanket mandates so does it come to any surprise that fao g oh by the way out.

Never Work With Children Or Animals, part 1

"It's the downside of fame fern actor become so well known for a character that fans forget their real name or that they have a personality separate from the character but some don't mind it as much as other said keiko chris soccer and reggie you'd probably stare at me blankly but if i said free free willy beethoven wishbone goose from captain marvel you know exactly who i was talking about my name's moxie and this is your brain on facts we've been filming animals almost as long as we've been filming are sells the first movie to star in animal is the protagonist was referred to the rescue all the way back in nineteen o five revert to the rescue was a british silent drama directed by sessile hepworth be owner of its star layer a male collie the stories about her roic dog named her over who rescues the families baby played by have poured stone daughter that was kidnapped from her nanny most of the footage footage is devoted to the dog's journey in finding the baby and then leading his master played by hepworth to the baby had fourth wife route the scenario and also acted as the mother in the film the film became so popular that hepworth had to reshoot it twice so many prints were being made that the negatives would wear out and it was after this film that's the previously uncommon name rover became the most recognized name for dogs in english speaking world the title is best known movie dog is probably split between renton ten and lassie was an honorable mention for benji among by eighties babies out there the first written ten ten wins discovered during world war one in a bomb doubt kennel and lorraine france by u s air corporal league duncan duncan found a mother german shepherd in a litter of five scrawny pops only two of whom would ultimately survive he named in renton ten ten an and the net after little puppet toys that french children to give the gi eyes from luck when the war ended dunkin made special arrangements to take his puppies back home to las angeles though the nets sadly became ill and died after the trip in nineteen twenty two dunkin in renton ten for ready has dunkin called him attended an l h dog show with randy performing for the crowd by jumping over thirteen feet her for meters following the show producer daryl zanuck ask dunkin if he could try one of his new moving pictures on the dog and paid him three hundred and fifty dollars to film renting inaction contacting every other studio yo in hollywood within ten ten based script where the north begins dunkin came across a warner brothers crew shooting a low budget movie in which they were having difficulty with an exterior shots involving a wolf duncan quickly approached the director and told him that renting could do the scene in one take true to his word dunkin's wonder dog did it in one try and both were hired for the entire shoot a man from hell's river german shepherds were not a wellknown breathe in the u s at the time so my guess is that renting could have passed from wolf for people who had never seen one before the film was a hit and run ten ten an immediate sensation making twenty six pictures were warner brothers while also starring in his own radio show the wonder dog intentions expressive face with the equal of any human actor in the silent era at the peak of his popularity warner brothers maintained eighteen train stand in to ensure that no undue stress was put on their star while providing renting with a private chef prepared daily lunches of tenderloin which he ate while listening to live classical music eight is digestion and rinse he also made more money than many of his human costars in the nineteen twentyfourth film lighthouse by the sea richie earned about a thousand dollars a week while the leading man william collier junior made a hundred and fifty dollars a week the same thing what happened in nineteen thirty nine during the filming of the wizard of oz where toto were paid twice as much as any of the little people playing munchkins renton ten died in nineteen thirty two at the age of fourteen and let's turn to france to be buried in the cemetery dish and it would end emotive mystique the cemetery of dogs and other domestic animals today rent intense continuous bloodline carey's on at a texas kennel where one litter of puppies are born each year when asked if she ever felt a sibling rivalry with renton ten dunkin's daughter carolyn told author susan arlene there was never any rivalry the dog's came first bonus fact there's a persistent urban legend that written ten ten had actually gotten the most votes leader actor for the first academy awards but they academy put the kabosh on it in hopes of being taken seriously what it actually happened was that screenwriter frank woods had been pushing fern award given to entertainers by entertainers to no avail he tried to solicit the help of the previously mentioned warner brothers expect daryl senate who thought he idea was ludicrous denigrate woods adhering letter in which he previewed his own ballot if he industry ever tried to give it self awards all of his votes were for warner brothers films including the best actor in which he cast his vote fervent intent he must've told somebody who told somebody else and that's how the story got start at the nineteen twenty eight oscar ballots were stored in archive and they contain not one vote ferment in ten in the nineteen thirties and forties grudge whether wax ran a kennel but not only supplied movie dog but taught regular doc obedience in his care with a colleague named powell who had several bad habits like constantly barking end chasing motorcycles after awhile pals owner decided he didn't want the dog back so he gave pal to whether wax in remission of his bill whether wax would essentially get held stop barking so much but never did break him of chasing motorcycles pals ancestry could actually be traced all the way back to england first great collie a dog called old cocky palace one of fifteen hundred dog to audition for the league rule of lassie in the movie lassie come home pals originally rejected because he was mail and the cubs lassie was described timmy original book as they try color collie with a black mask while powell had lots of white markings including the white blazed down his nose a female prize winning colleagues selected instead empowers kept on as a stunt dog well filming a scene in which lassie had to swim the flooded river hold himself out lay down without shaking out their coach attempts to crawl on their side and finally motionless and exhausted the female dog refused to even get into the water but pal hit all the marks in just one take the rest as they say is history you might have picked up on the fact that lassie the character was a girl and powell was a boy in fact all nine dogs who have played lassie happened male even when she supposedly had puppies and was shown nursing the weather wax continue to use male colleagues because well both sexes shed or blowout their coats in the summertime when most movies and tv shows traditionally film the males have the sticker coat so the dog won't look scrawny during filming because it's shutting fans also saw it last csc big her roic talk and males are about fifteen pounds heavier then female the female colleagues were not ignored completely some of lassie stunt doubles had been female paladin always play lassie in his movies in the courage of lassie he played a dog called bill in the painted hills he played ship end in the strangest one in son of lassie he played last seissan laddy while lassie let's play by another dog when pal died of old age in nineteen fifty eight weather wax was distraught he would often visit the grave he had doug for pal and a special spotted his ranch i could never bring himself to watch another lassie movie again both top dogs usually get top billing it's actually horses who have the most prolific and also in the most difficult time in tinseltown early hollywood wasn't a narcotic place with upstart production companies launching whatever grandiose project from the mind beginning in the nineteen twenties as the motion picture industry first booms you could do almost anything to an animal or human for that matter as many as one hundred horses died in the making of original nineteen twenty six than her with the jump in profits that came with the advent of talkies nineteen twenty seven along came the studio system which concentrated filmmaking into a few corporate dictatorships to churn out movies is quickly as possible dramas comedies adventures musicals biographies old would use animals but the genre that use the most was the western western wear a staple in the twenties and thirties and boomed in the forties in the early days when the motor car was still new people were more familiar with handling horses and more mindful of inherent dangers like run away wagging teams or a horse and rider falling but directors loves the show falls they would use pitfalls in trip wires make the horses for so there were also sent horses who could fall in command trained horses will be made to jump through windows or through flames they leftover wagons and rampage through saloons safety which rarely much of a concern compared to getting shot sometimes individually horses were famous enough in their own right for loved enough by a famous human actor to fare better western star william as heart had a famous pinto name fritz who could fallen command lie down the act as a shield in a gunfight and even play seems opposite a monkey in the nineteen twenty four movie singer urging the geese there's a scene in which heartless supposed to ride fritz off a cliff into a gorge heart didn't want to risk fritz stunt horse so a fake fritz with bill heartless film galloping fritz city edge of the cliff at which point on q fritz fell to one side the camera's cut and the fake fritz held up with wireless it was brought in and heart climbed aboard when the wires were cut the two toppled into the gorge heartless badly shaken by the fall but once edited the footage of falling man and horse was highly realistic for its day so much so that the motion picture producer and distributor organizations eight k the hays office called heart in to explain why he's been so cool to fritz more about the he is office later thanks to all of my brainiacs who help support the show this week i reach weeding or sharing social media posts including debra eric richard charles with a hammer seneca the wiser nelson and fellow podcasters stories if you were indoors end lie hard with a vengeance both of which i recommend lie hard also leftist a review on apple podcast this is a top notch podcast despite the spelling you're romantic concepts moxie podcast is exceptionally well produced informative and well worth you're subscription that makes three interviews in three weeks do you think we can keep the street going if you've always meant to leader of you but never got around to it now it'd great time if we can build some momentum i wonder if we could get to fifty reviews by the end of the year were sitting at thirty now thirty one if you include the person who left one star but didn't write a comment just so i can wander forever what their principal complaint complaint was a fridge tuesday exception rather than the rule in nineteen thirty nine two horses were killed in the filming of northwest mounted police end to more died in the movie jesse james the horses and jesse james were wearing blinkers a kind of blinder that shit's directly over the guy with ice painted on them so the camera wouldn't notice the horses were unable to see and had no idea they were being driven off a seventy five foot cliff over whitewater until it was too late footage was impressive the stunt men got his paycheck and the horses died their deaths were not in vain though this is the single biggest turning point in the history hollywood's treatment of animals word if the death scott around end in reaction to public outcry the he's office worked with american humane association to write guidelines for animal performances be americanhumane maine where the people who monitor the conditions for animals while filming end approved be no animals were harmed in the making of this film messaging the credits is not the same as the humane society so they're like minded in many ways americanhumane begins ten in october of eighteen seventy seven we'll see amalgamation of twenty seven organizations across the usa whose first meeting let's discuss the mistreatment of farm animals during transport across the country the following year they also again efforts to protect abused children child cruelty laws have been around since colonial times but where they did exist were broadly written and rarely enforced across the board stricter laws protecting animals were put in place before strict laws to protect children americanhumane exposed unsanitary and inhumane conditions in slaughterhouses promoted the passage of the first cruelty to children act proposed legislation to protect child stage performers and culture federal legislation to ban frequent large deep branding of livestock they opposed corporal punishment in schools and fought against the practice of did a section for live the section which was used in schools and by scientists and that was just in their first twenty years starting in nineteen forty after the filming of jesse james americanhumane which granted access to a movie sets by the screen actors guild the guild had no jurisdiction over non on american or non union productions apparent animal cruelty what's also banned by the hays office you've heard about the hays code and episode forty words you can't say on tv or radio which featured special guest joe christie of the upcoming podcast rock history with joe christie hays code demanded that marital bedrooms feature to twin beds that betty boop be drawn in more modest costuming and that no one make fun of the clergy in any way ever amongst and many other restrictive rules films had to be submitted to their office before release to get a certificate of approval and changes were often demanded before the certificate will be issued in nineteen sixty eight the hays code was dropped so movie character characters could be a satirical wanting profane or queerest they wanted but it also that americanhumane access to sunset swiss diminished and their jurisdiction to act was weak and it was another era of anything goes in new hollywood younger filmmakers were creating realistic and daring movies with more subtlety unless dependence on formula contributing to a cinematic renaissance center moved toward realism location shooting all of that cinema very today was bad for the animals through the final days of the sixties into the seventies it was bleak said karen russa vice president of the american humane film and tv you know we were banned from film set there was a push for a gritty realism in those days of filmmaking and they didn't like to be told they could or could not do something with animals because american humane wasn't onset they could not confirm nor refused that to mules were killed on the set of patent in nineteen seventy in a scene where general patton shoots to mules who are blocking up rich in apocalypse now in nineteen seventy nine it real live water buffalo were slaughtered with a machete their defense being it was going to be slaughtered with a machete regardless before the movie was released in the uk the royal society for the prevention of cruelty to animals protests did that it violated that country's cinematic graph animals act the list of cruelty they could approve in the nineteen seventies included animals kilter entertainment horses wire tripped and live snake sliced into pieces i did not google that last one end by listening to this podcast you indemnify me from any psychological harm if you choose to it took another crisis to push things back in the right direction that being nineteen eighties heaven's gate is spectacular flop so extensive it put united artists studios out business chickens died in stage cockfights one horse was killed in an explosion others were injured or killed in a battle scene it was claimed the cattle were slaughtered in gutted so their inner it's could double for the innards of human character's americanhumane which hadn't been allowed on the set lead picket lines and a boycott of the film which is taken up by humane groups across the country unlike apocalypse now there were no good reviews to distract people in public anger once again lead sweeping change americanhumane monitors came back on sat through a contract with the screen actors guild any association of motion picture and television producers see no animals were harmed in the making of this film disclaimer came into being at the same time it was first granted to a movie called the doberman gang in which a man trains six dogs to rob a bank for him in nineteen eighty eight americanhumane published set of guidelines for film and tv production since then they say the incidence of accidents illness and death of animals on set have declined sharply although there are still occasional violators especially when filming takes takes place overseas americanhumane currently monitors seventy percent of known animal action in film and television starting in pre production by reviewing the script they don't just safeguard cuddly mammals other american humane even insurers decent treatment insects and fish bonus fact in the credits for the silence of the lambs is re mendez law wrangler and stylist they were not enough death's head talk mobs to be found in no time in which to breed them so mendez took another species of moss and essentially dressed in a little costume he painted a desk head onto a fake press on now and used a special kind of glue stick to the mosque back in a way they wouldn't hurt and that's the kind of interesting extra content you can get an share in our facebook group at facebook dot com slash groups slash brainiac break room for something really special head over to patriot dot com slash your brain on facts for the pilots of stop the lie where myself and three other podcast hosts try to figure out who's tantalizing tidbit of obscure knowledge is actually complete crap you dizzy patriotic exclusive open to all levels even the two dollar a month level which is less than seven cents a day help support the show americanhumane is not without controversy so in the late nineteen eighties americanhumane was accused by bob barker and united activists adams rights of condoning animal cruelty on the set set of project x the nephew broaddrick movies out chimps being taught fly planes parker and company claims that a cattle prod in a gun were being used on set and the chimp was rumored to have been beaten americanhumane responded funded by launching a ten million dollar libel slander an invasion of privacy suit against parker and put up at the state of the allegations were based on insufficient and misleading information the suit which eventually settled by parker's insurance company in american humane favor for three hundred thousand dollars in two thousand one cla times claimed americanhumane film unit quote has been slow to criticize cases of animal this treatment yet quick to defend the big budget studios is supposed to police in late twenty thirteen the hollywood reporter ran a story that implicated americanhumane in turning a blind eye to end under reporting incidence of animal abuse on television and movie sets when conspicuous example would be twenty seven animals who died during the filming of the hobbit and unexpected journey even though the movie did receive no animals were harmed message the the tiger from the life of pi nearly drowned in fourteen horses were injured during the filming of prince caspian but they all got the seal to jumping back in time and to cleanse the palate with a slightly more pleasant tone in nineteen teen thirty nine after the jesse james debacle americanhumane created the patsy award the honor animal performers it originally stood for picture animals top star of the year before being changed to performing animal television star a beer the very first recipient of a patsy was francis the talking you'll in nineteen fifty one in a ceremony hosted by ronald reagan he award later covered both film and television and was separated it into four categories canine at klein wild and special which included livestock like arnold from green acres who won twice arnold's trainer frank in which the proud owner of over forty patsy awards lassie got so many patsy awards that they put her in the hall of fame to take her out of the running each year by the nineteen seventies be awards were being presented on television with animal recipients selected by the general public who voted in ballots appeared in associated press newspapers these words ended though in nineteen eighty six due to a lack of funding that same year the genesis awards were created by the humane society of the united states the owner owner individuals in the major news and entertainment media producing outstanding works raise awareness of animal issues in twenty eleven americanhumane announced the creation of the oscars described as an unofficial animals almost centric spin on me oscars they have categories like best young animal performer best aquatic performance and best supporting actor one remember that second dark period for animal actors it turns out the nineteen seventies could be even more dangerous for people assuming you are done enough to invite dozens of lions into your house with no professional training and just kind of trust you're luck that was apparently the planned for filmmaker no marshall and his wife actress tippi hedren yes the one from the birds in creating their movie roar the concept came to them when they were in africa well hedren films mazy satan's harvest website see they found an abandoned house that had been taken over by of pride of lions they decided to make a movie about lions that would be entertaining but has a message of conservation and they conscripted marshall's three sons and head turns daughter melanie griffith they decided to raise some of the animals and sells they acquired a number of big cats from zoos pet shops circuses private owners an animal control especially for the making of the movie their very first first being a three month old my income they brought a ranch they named shambala after neighbors began to complain an did their best to make it look like africa no one would invest in the project which got more more and more expensive as the cat started breeding so they had to find answers himself the movie would feature over a hundred and fifty animals most of the big cats including lions tigers even though they don't believe in africa leopards cheetahs cooper's and jaguars in ideal for even correct conditions you would have to handlers per large animal they definitely did not have three hundred handlers working on this movie they employed to total marshall's concept for the movie was to allow the cats to do pretty much whatever they wanted and film it keeping the script loose enough to work around them that way he would get the most natural and truest expression of their personalities and behavior according to his son sean as director marshall would often refused the call cut even when they actors mostly family members were in danger you never wanna lose the take he also couldn't show any weakness in front of animals the movie took eleven years to get from script concept the distribution script restarted around the end of nineteen sixty nine actual filming filming began in seventy four and it would take about four years to complete principal photography a far cry from the six to nine months they originally estimated the movie was finally edited and released in nineteen eighty one this one's head turns first major movie with her daughter melanie griffith griffis left the production for awhile firoz coming out of this would have a face the rule then went to a friend of hers who the lions were accustomed to end whose face griffith was apparently not as worried about under study found a number of scenes then griffiths changed her mind and they had to reshoot she should have gone with their first instinct was the lions did try to take her face offs requiring her tab reconstructive surgery we could be here all day recounting injuries from the shoot cinematographer agenda bond with nearly scalped requiring over two hundred stitches to put his head back together and what's his first major hollywood movie assistant director doron copper was attacked in mauled by a lion during production his wrote bitten open is jaws and one of the lions attempted to rip his ear off it was also two injured in the head chess inside headroom suffered a fractured leg when she was thrown from the back of an elephant an multiple runs from the cats marshall son john required fifty six stitches to repair his worst by and and marshall himself swooned it so many times that he was hospitalized with gangrene at one point he only person who escaped filming completely unharmed with kenyan born actor yellow towboat who had sworn off getting cozy with animals from day one in nineteen seventy eight a flood from a damn breaking killed many of the lions in the film washed away the set and destroyed nearly everything how trees their personal possessions and editing equipment and the completed footage sheriff's deputies had to shoot three lions who escaped during the commotion including robbie a unique black main tradition lion king lion of the picture this set production back years and the damage done amounted to over four million dollars headroom sold her costume from the birds and all of her jewelry and marshall bankrupted his ad agency to get production started again a year later a brush fire hit the ranch policy animals were evacuated to safety marshall was claude by a cheetah while trying to protect it when it was all over hedge fund said what they had done was incredibly stupid and should never be attempted again they almost couldn't find a distributor because everyone they spoke to one at a hefty chunk of the profits but the family badly needed to recoup their losses in the end they couldn't release the film in the usa anyway due to multiple pending lawsuits from creditors the film cost seventeen million dollars of their own money to me and only brought in two million dollars internationally it was also the death knell for hadrian in marshall's marriage is they divorced the following year see other crazy thing about war was the marketing the same cut of the film would be advertised as a horror horror comedy andy ferocious family comedy and that's where we run out of ideas at least for today there was a bright side to the whole war experience tippi hedren kept shambala ranch and establish a warrior foundation to care for big cats who seized by law enforcement born in captivity or surrendered by private owners this includes michael jackson's to bengal tigers from the neverland ranch to end the largest bull elephant ever recorded in captivity while shambala bolo welcomes all volunteers only trained professionals are allowed to work directly with animals the title for today's show was never work with children are animals and you'll notice i didn't get around to the children part so

Living bishop hendricken jerry. Welcome to the show next great to be here. I really appreciate you making the time. And i thought we would start with the beginning of. Is this anything and in the suppose you could call it the introduction of the preface another book pops up. Which is the last laugh by philip burger. And i would love to just know how that book entered your life. How did i find act. I really don't know but i still haven't. I have the copy that i bought wherever i found it. I mean i was in high school. I did the absolute minimum. You could do to to survive in high school. I never read anything outside of school except magazines car. Magazines comic books and esquire. I dunno those years. You know Early early seventies esquire was really full of character and about encouraging male boldness and inventiveness in lifestyle. And just life in general. You know the very sophisticated. And it was everything i wanted to be. I wanted to be urban. And i wanted to be smart and smarter than i was and wanted to have like this cool adventurous life and they were very encouraging to that. I don't. I don't think there's anything like that around today. That was essential and the same with that book. The last laugh it was. It was just like whatever made men in centuries past become explorers. You know. I don't know how they became that i guess i i. I remember reading about explorers clubs like in seventeenth eighteenth century london. You know. I have two sons and a daughter. And that's the. That's the thing i really wanted to pass along the two things i would want to pass along would be ethics and boldness in life. But that doesn't answer your question. Where i got the book. I don't know that's okay though. The genesis story is is secondary. It's really the the context that you're providing and just as a quick side note a friend of mine kalfin used to write the what. I've learned interview series in esquire. That i remember back when when you know when it had. And maybe still doesn't some of that character that you're describing that boldness. What was it inside the last laugh that grabbed you so much. Yeah so if. I look back at my whole life. Starting you know about like second or third grade. It was all this inexorable march towards this pursuit of the comedy arts and there was nothing else about comedy. Albert brooks did a album. Who did an article in esquire called school for comedians and it was a parody and i had no idea it was parody. He grew up in la and he was making fun of what comedians might need to learn to be comedians and amazon. Early seventies esquire article. And i had no idea. It was a parody. I'm and i just. Oh there's a school or i just wanted to learn about this world and the last laugh really took your deeply into the world and it is a completely hermetically sealed world that is frankly unrelated to the rest of the entertainment industry. And it's really unrelated to almost all other creative arts. It is a very sealed ecosystem. The world of comedy particularly stand up comedy and i was desperately thirsty for any scrap of data about it. That you have much like an olympic athlete of sorts with training logs and workouts. And so on. You have forty five years of hacking away. And it's put in the books description on yellow notepads. You've preserved all of this and had lived to speak or to hear you speak more accurately a bit about your writing process and the preparation that he did for this. I read in the new york times. Just going to read this short bit. You can fact. Correct this if need be but here's how it reads. I still have a writing session every day. It's another thing that organizes your mind. The coffee goes here. The pad goes here. The notes go here. my writing technique is just. You can't do anything else. You don't have to write but you can't do anything else. I'd love to hear you elaborate on that because it actually sounds very similar to what the fiction writer neil. Gaiman has his first writing as well. But but what does that look like for you and what. You're writing sessions. Tend to look like if we look back over the last. I don't know ten years. Because i'm sure it's changed over time. No it hasn't changed. It hasn't changed as the coffee which i didn't know about coffee in my younger years. I think i discovered coffee after. I had kids and i didn't have time to have a long meals with my friends anymore but we can meet for coffee and then i realized boy. This coffee really gets you talking. I thought maybe i'll do a show where you just talk with coffee. And that's kind of where that came from that means and car show. My writing. sessions used to be very arduous very painful pushing against the wind in in soft muddy ground. Were like a wheelbarrow full of bricks. And i had to do it. Because there's just as i mentioned in the book. You either learn to do that. Or you will die in the ecosystem and i learned that really fast and really young and that saved my life and made my career that i grasped the essential principle of survival in comedy. Really young and not principle. Is you learn to be a writer. It's really the profession of writing that that's a standup comedy is. However you do it you anybody you can do it any way you want. But if you don't learn to do it in some form you will not survive and when you sit down is it. An empty page is it. Bits and pieces that you've noted through the weekend observations that you than flesh out what what is actually in front of you when you start. What's in front of me is usually about fifteen or twenty pages of stuff. That's in various states of development. And then there's a smaller book of just really really random things like When you're on a cell phone call and the call drops and then you reconnect with the person they'll go. I don't know what happened there as if anyone is expecting them to know anything about the incredibly complex technology of a cell phone they they offer this little. I don't know is is an excuse or an apology they go. I don't know what happened there so anyway. So i don't know so that's an example of something in that my little little tiny notebook that i don't know what to do with that but it's just so stupid to me and funny so that to me is like a it's like an archery target fifty yards away and then i take out my bow and arrow and i go. Let me see if i can hit that. Let me see. If i can create something that i could say to a room full of humans in a nightclub that will make them see what i see in that. There's something stupid and funny about that to me. That's the very very beginning. Parental rights. something about it. It'll be if i'm lucky. It'll be a half a page or a page on a yellow legal pad. And i'll write that and then in the session the next day. If i get around to it. I will see it again. And i'll see what i have and what i like and i don't like and as any writer can tell you. It's ninety five percent rewrite. So i have two phases. There is the free play creative phase and then there is the polish and construction phase. Of and i i love to spend inordinate. I mean it's not wasteful to me. Because that's just what i liked to do. Amounts of time refining and perfecting. Ingle word of it until it has this pleasing flow to my ear and then it becomes something that i can't wait to say. And then we go from there to the stage with it and then from the stage the audience will then i. I imagined you know it's a very scientific thing to me. It's like okay. Here's my experiment. And you run the experiment and then the audience just dumps a bunch of data on you of this is good. This is okay. This is very good. This is terrible and that goes into my brain from performing it on stage and then it's back through the rewrite process and then new ideas will come and it's you know it's just millions of different kinds of development is just that so you're just trying to get your you're just going to that place of creating fixing jettisoning. It's extremely occupying. it's never boring. It's the frustration. I'm so used to at this point. I don't even notice it and it's just the work time it's just worked. I'm which end that's my. I like the way athletes talk about. I gotta get my work in that you get your work in. I like that phrase one of the reasons. I was looking forward to doing the show with you. Is i know that something. You are very interested in the craft. The yeah the system is of the brain and creative endeavor. Or i really think when i'm working it's very much like when you're watching a pitcher working onstage than that we're going up so that the different so basically it's onstage in off stage. It's it's the desk. And then the state gen then back to the desk in them back to the stage and that's endless. The process and the repeatable process the experimentation. Like you've used. It is extremely interesting to me. And if we took or take that cellphone example the dropping of reception. That's an observation. It seems to me that you are a real connoisseur of questions. Questions are being used as part of a bit or possibly as prompts and mentioned the coffee in part leading to comedians in cars in a harvard business review interview. You also mentioned that. It's important to know what you don't like a big part of innovation saying you know what i'm really sick of question mark and for you. That was talk shows where the music plays. Somebody walks out to desks. Shakes hands with the host sits down. And what am i really sick of being a departure point for innovation. I would love to hear about any questions if there are questions that you use prompts to help elicit observation materials for yourself no no that's that part is somewhat having a very cranky nature and being a sensitive kind of on-off it's except perception but you're just provoked by a lot of things you know if you're lucky enough to have that the next thing you must do is nurture protected and never lose it and the enemy of it is success. Success the enemy of irritability and crankiness. Because now you have money and you can remove the difficulties from your life. And that's not good. How do you contend with that. Because you've had certainly you've i would imagine if had to do things to offset in that case the creature comforts and so on that come along with the amount of success that you've did that really solved all of that issue. Is i got married. Okay please elaborate. That you'll never run out with you get married and if you have kids then then you've got a goldman you mentioned just a few minutes ago about words smething until you get everything pleasing to the year and really obsessing over the the pros. I've read that one of your explanations for the success of all television. Was that quote. The show was successful. Because i micromanage every word every line every take every at every casting and then later on if you're efficient. You're doing it the wrong way. There are a lot of questions i could ask about. This as suppose one is if you were for such a period of time. I understand the logic of it but for such a long period of time obsessing the details like that did. You've not find yourself at risk of burnout or just hitting a point of overwhelm or did that not happen to you. Talking about the series now or just. We're talking about the series. The series of the series is a You know if you wanna look at the comedy. Arts is is the only thing that interests me creatively. I think or the only thing i'm good at. But if you look at the different comedy arts if you know if i would break it down let's say to like basics of stand up comedy a television series or movie i would analogize those two different vessels on the water so a tv series is big boat that you can run with a couple of people. A movie is a yacht. There are so many people. It's a beautiful thing. There's a lot of money involved. Everybody wants it. Everybody thinks it's the ultimate way to go across. The water and stand up for me is a surfboard. It's just you you paddle out and you try and catch the energy and you're on your own and you can do it and go home and nobody but you really even knows what happened. I think the more people you add to the vessel the faster you're going to struggle to maintain its progress through the water for sure. The tv series got to a point. We didn't nine years. And the way i was doing it. That was as far as it could go before it was really going to stop cutting through the water in that beautiful way that it was doing. That's why i pulled out of it before. I had to before anyone wanted me to because i didn't want to be on a boat that was starting to struggle. I didn't want to have that experience. And i even more than that. I didn't want the audience to have that experience. I wanted to complete this gift to them in a way that they would always go. Oh i was given a lovely thing. One time in the ninety s and it was just lovely. I wanted them to have it like that. No excuses no if only know it did go on a bit. Maybe longer than it should have. I didn't want to. I just wanted them to have this lovely gift. That's why i stopped the tv series. I also describe the tv series to you as a weather event that has an energy that gathers and psychedelic but every storm blows itself out and that was about to run out of energy and So regard it rained thing. Because i i'm i was at the center of the storm and i could feel the slowing of the cyclonic curve. Refunnel is that something that you had a role model for us something you simply perceived because it's very rare for someone to step out like rocky marciano usually go a bit too far. They get slapped around bed or they ended up signing in a baseball mitts. Caesar's palace is. Did you have any model for that. Was something you decided entirely on your own. The closest i had. And i would never compare myself in any way shape or form was the beatles. The timeframe of the beatles was nine years. They broke up for different reasons. We had no discord on my show like they struggled with but the portion size of the beatles just felt so right to me and i thought that and they were together about nine years and we were together about nine years and that was something about adding that to go to ten. You know like if people send me. How long did you do that serious foreign. If i said ten years i could just hear people go. Wow ten years. It's just just the portion size just felt -tupid is the you mentioned. I guess irritation as a wellspring of comedic material. Is it irritation is it sensitivity in the connotation of a very sensitive scale where you're just perceiving more is it a dissatisfaction or a irritability or is there. I think your five senses have been made a little too good and it's not quite comfortable. I have a friend actually. Two friends is really weird. And they're married. This is a really weird story and they both suffered from this down in their hearing. There's a bone in the hearing canal. That's i guess it's like a. I think it looks like a little wishbone or some. You know there's all these little fine own there. Yeah this stir up all these tiny bones. Yeah so both of them. The husband and the wife i the wife and then the husband like six months later. It's a very rare condition. So anyway they both had to get this very delicate surgery on their inner ear and they replace that bone with a piece of titanium. That's made to do the same thing. And it's actually this fantastic cure for this problem. And so they both have these titanium ears now and when they first got it they're hearing was like too good and a little uncomfortable for them. And i think they've adjusted to it. Fine but at reminded me of how i feel like my senses are my eyes and my ears and my skin and i just feel everything just a little more than i think i would even like to right and so that's yeah. I think that's just kind of a genetic thing. But i don't know another comedian. That isn't the same and just has this hair-trigger reaction to anything. That is irritates them and a lot of it is visual. I think. I think i mentioned that in my introduction that i think jokes come from a kind of intense visual acuity get yes so i think that's probably we're comes from if we imagine. We meaning audience imagines comics. Our minds is these hypersensitive catlike creatures. Yeah who might be very difficult to put into any type of group yes but yet. You mentioned a lack of discord on the show which. I'm not a hollywood walk but i have a little bit of mileage and that seems to be not altogether common to. What would you attribute that lack of discord. I don't like discord. And i don't like it and i am fearless in rooting it out and solving it and if anyone's having a problem i'm gonna walk right up to them and go. Is there a problem. Let's talk about this. Because i cannot stand the turmoil that approach to conflict resolution proactive. It's not like you're being passive aggressive your conflict avoidance. Is that something you got from. Your parents is that something that you just came out of the womb having that direct addressing of of discord or problems. I don't know where i got that like. If you break the human struggle down to one word it's confront. And so i kind of approach everything that way and just the act of the confront is like you know what what do people always say. You have a problem all that nonsense. I did read some pop psychology book sites. I was very much a searcher in my younger years. Yoga and zen and a little scientology transcendental meditation buddhism. You know. I read a lot of stuff looking what i was looking for. I think was a looking for a working philosophy. I think is what i was looking for in life to apply and i kind of formed my own little on enough. Religion is the right word. But i've definitely created my own beliefs award system. I i think operating system would be the best term for what i've created because it's very pragmatic it's not faith based in any way but that's my one of my biggest principles is confront just a quick thanks to one of our sponsors and we'll be right back to the show.

Tim while front will automate your investments for the long term and you can get started today at wealth. Front dot com slash. Tim other other examples that you could give from your operating system and the other guiding rules or principles or anything that stuck from that seeking period. Well what my. My guiding rule is systemized. What's the problem. The problem is like my daughter. My daughter is very creative. She's extremely bright. She's got a credible head on her shoulders and see myself in her at that age. She's way farther advanced than i was at that age. But she doesn't know. I i said to her you. She has a creative gift. Okay so i say when you have a creative gift it's like someone just gave you a horse now you you have to learn how to ride it. You gotta learn how to ride this horse and people that are born by the dozens and dozens. I've seen people that were given black stallions and it usually kill if you if you have a black stallion like from that movie and you're born and they just put you on it and that's what happens. They put you on it and you either learn to ride this thing or it's going to kill you then. We have many many examples of that. So she's trying to write this thing struggling. I can't right. I keep putting it off so i explained to her my basic system which you already talked about at the top of the show. Which is if you're going to write. Make yourself a writing session. What's the writing session. I'm going to work on this problem. We'll how long you going to work on it. Don't just sit down with an open ended. I'm going to work on this problem that that's a ridiculous torture to put on a human being's head so you can hire a trainer to get in shape and he comes over and you go. How long is the session and he goes. It's open ended. Forget it. it's all right there. You've got to control what your brain can take. So if you're going to exercise. God bless you and that's the best thing in the world you can do but you gotta when's it gonna end. When's the workout over. It's going to be an hour okay or you can take that. Let's do thirty minutes okay. Great now we're getting somewhere. I can do thirty. I'm trying to teach my son who knows how to do transcendental. Meditation had to do it. Assume you know about. I do practice. I can't do it fifteen minutes like okay. Let's do ten. let's do ten. Let's come up with something you can do. That's where you start everything. That's how you start to build a system so my daughter so i said to her. You have to have an end time to your writing session. If you're gonna sit down at a desk with a problem and do nothing else you got to get a reward for that and the reward is the alarm goes off and you're done you get up and walk away and go have some cookies and milk. You're done if you have the guts and the balls to sit down and write. You need a reward at the other end of that session. Which is stop now pencils down. So that's the beginning of a system that to me will help. Almost anybody learned to write a which is something you know. I kinda wanted to teach in a way. Because i find. I think it's so simple. I think exercise is pretty simple to and but people don't they don't come up with baked goods simple little systems. They just try and do well. And that's to me that's gonna found the simple doesn't mean easy and simple important. The incentives right having a ward having a defined format. How long did your daughter ended up choosing for her writing duration or have you chose. I just do an hour. that's a lot. She says i write all day. No you're not. Nobody writes day. Expire can't right all day it's torture. Yeah if you taught a class on writing what other lessons might you have or resources or anything exercises some imagining that your daughter could sit down. She says are a half hour and then you ask her. How writing session. When she said. Well i didn't have any idea. What right. so you'd have. I don't know what age students would be in your course but what else would be a component of your class on writing. Well advert teach them to learn to accept mediocrity. You know no one's really that great you know great the people that just put tremendous amount of hours into. It's a game of tonnage you know. How many total are you gonna work per week per month per year. You might even want chart that or with your exercise. If you wanna get in shape. I couldn't get in shape. I was like a start as a jogger. You know like in the seventies and i would run three miles a day. And then i got older and i got married late and i had young kids and i really had to get in shape and i picked up this book. by bill philips called body for life by for life. And it's really really so it's such a system for primitive brain. I do it to this day. I think it's a work of genius this book and it really got me in shape because he broke it down to. Here's what we're gonna do in minute. One here's what you're going gonna do the minute five minute twelve and this is going to end in the forty five minutes or whatever it is and every minute i know exactly what i'm doing now and that life turn the key for me and all of a sudden i was getting in shape. I never had to ask. What am i doing now. what are we doing next. it was very. It's like you gotta treat your brain like a dog. You just got you gotta stupid. The brain the mind is infinite wisdom. The brain is a stupid little dog that is easily trained hughes the mind with the brain. The brain is so easy to master. You just have to confine it you can find it and stunned through repetition and systems ation. S- let's talk about feedback in the experimental loop that you mentioned earlier. Which was desk staged desks stage desk stage. One for feedback would be audience feedback and i'm curious. What other forms of feedback you have now. There is no other feedback that means anything kick out. Well here's a. Here's a little fine point of writing technique that i'll pass along to your writers out. There never talked to anyone about what you wrote that day that day. You have to wait twenty four hours to ever say anything to anyone about what you did because you never want to take away that wonderful happy feeling that you did that very difficult thing that you tried to do that. You accomplished it you wrote. You sat down and wrote so if you say anything like the same result ever heard the thing like you never tell people that name. You're going to give the baby church until it's born because they're going to react and the reaction is going to have a color and if you've decided that that's going to be the baby's name you don't want to know what anybody else thinks. So i will always wait twenty four hours before i say anything to anyone about what i wrote. So you wanna preserve that good feeling because if you if let's say you write something in you love it and then later on that day you're talking to someone and you. What do you think of this idea. blah blah blah. And they don't love it now. That day feels like i guess you know that that was a wasted effort so you always wanna reward yourself the keita. Writing to being a good writer is to treat yourself like a baby very extremely nurturing and loving and then switch over to lou gossett in officer and a gentleman a harsh prick ball busting son of a bitch about that is just not good enough. That's gotta come out or it's gotta be redone or thrown away so flipping back and forth between those two brain. Quadrants is the key to writing. When you're writing. You wanna treat your brain like a toddler. it's just all nurturing and loving and supportiveness and then when you look at it the next day you wanna be just the hardest and you switch back and forth when you would come off stage and feel like you had really nailed the set. You just killed. Would you ask for feedback from other comex who you might respect. Who were there. Would you do something to celebrate and stallions feedback. You don't need you. Don't need to ask the fashion. That's the that's the paradise of stand up comedy. You don't have to ask anyone anything. Stand up comics receive a score on what they're doing more often and more critically than any other human on earth you know even picture is not on the mound for an hour and twenty minutes straight. You know right. Having his pitches judged by the umpire and by the way some of those calls our opinions of the umpire. That may or may not be true. Every opinion the audience gives you is one hundred percent accurate right. How they feel is fact Chain have that advantage when you did well much like after checking the box of doing an hour long writing session would you reward yourself or was that not part of the process for you. I reward myself constantly. I mean but there's no greater reward than that state of mind that you're end when that is working if you can extricate yourself from your self which is the goal in all sports and performance arts if you get out of your mind and able to just function you know your sense technique that you have there is no greater reward but you know if you want to have an ice cream sunday hon. It's going to pale in comparison. Yeah did you have a long term plan lustrous if we go back to the the early days did you have any type of long term career plan for yourself or was it really the ball in front of you and executing on that one next step then. The career emerged from that approach or something else. Are you asking me if i had a backup. Plan of stand up. Didn't work out. Is that what. I'm asking you if you had a long term career plan with erosion of nominated even know if you could make a living as a stand up comedian unless you know you were george carlin. I didn't i didn't know anything about it. I didn't end the truth. Was there really. Wasn't there really wasn't a world an infrastructure that exists today. We didn't know if there was any jobs out there even if we were able to learn how to do it. We had no idea what we were doing we. It was completely blind leap of faith out of the plane with the parachute hoping that wasn't laundry in there. What is the feeling that you mentioned it. I would love as someone who is hyper you to describe that feeling. That would make an ice cream. Sunday superfluous right. That feeling of getting that feedback. What is it in the body. What is it or in the mind. However you want to answer that. What does it feel like to you. I sometimes describe it as math and music which is kind of the same thing. Music is so mathematical as his standup is extremely mathematical. So you know. I mean i. I certainly don't have to tell you of what that you're just looking for a state of mind you're trying to maneuver yourself into a state of mind that you know is your highest function level but there are many levels below that that are good enough to get the job done so that you can call yourself a professional. So that's all there is is it's musical it's very rhythmic and musical. It is for me. I'm looking for to get myself in a rhythm and then to get the audience in a rhythm very much like a conductor. I think would feel you know. A conductor has a piece of music. I have a piece of music in front of me and now i have to get the symphony to be doing it. The way we know it can be and then the audience comes along and supports that. And it's this absurd struggle. And i really think being a conductor or a surfer is the best analogy because the forces that you're attempting to corral are so much greater than you. The wave has so much more strength than you have. All you can hope to do is navigate within it. That's the goal to just get to that very brief very transitory perception of mastery. It seems in this moment that i am completely mastering this audience. But it's only a moment. It's only a moment. I couldn't stay up there very long. Even an hour is not a longtime totally not along and it takes years and years and years of work and study and practice to be able to do that to do the hour. The hour is really the standard in my business. A lot of people can do twenty. Some can do thirty five a lot of really good guys at forty five an hour hour fifteen i think again i might. I'll go to my favorite Which is baseball for analogies. It's the complete game. Can you finish the game. And that's that's the our ten hour twenty nine innings of mass jury. Yet you need to have not just a lot of material but a lot of practice and tonnage as you put it perform at a high level for that period of time and and manage their energy and yours and it has. It has to ebb and flow. And that's just to piggyback on. The analogy used a very much similar sports and have had a lot of athletes on the show and even some surfing. Legends like laird hamilton. They'll say they should call surfing paddling. Because that's what you're actually doing. Most of the time you get to show at the end of the day as the cover shot surfing the big way of but that's really the output of a lot of tonnage right. And i know you. You've been quoted as thinking of yourself more as a sportsman than an artist in for a lot of athletes routine is is super key to managing energy and putting in the reps and producing good results. You there's a quote from you in the new york times and the quotas. I'm not ocd. But i love routine. I get less depressed with routine aside from the writing sessions. Are there any other routines for you. That are particularly important as scaffolding or automatic behaviors. Yeah exercise weight training and transcendental meditation. I think i could solve just about anyone's life. And i don't care what you do with weight training and transcendental meditation. I think your body needs that stress. That stressor. And i think it builds your the resilience of the nervous system. And i think transcendental meditation is a absolutely ultimate work tool avik. The stress reduction is great. But it's more the energy recovery and the concentration fatigue solution which is of course you know as a stand up comic. I can tell you. My entire. life is concentration fatigue whether it's writing or performing my brain and my body which is the same thing are constantly hitting the wall and if you have that in your hip pocket you're columbus with compass chatting with hugh jackman on the podcast and he's also a devout. Seems like an odd word to use. Since it's it can be used quite secularly. But proponent of how many times what is your weekly schedule. Look like for weight training when you do it and do. Tm twice a day or at least twice a day. But i will do it anytime i feel like. I'm dipping energetically. Yeah yeah any. If if i sit down. And the penn doesn't move for like twenty minutes. I know i'm outta guess. Why the pen moving. My way training routine is three times a week for an hour a session. But i'm into that. I've been into that bill phillips body for life the hit training so it's three times a week of weights and three times a week the interval cardio training there are a lot of days. I wanna cry instead of do it because it really. It really physically hurts. But i just think it's balancing. It's very balancing to the forces inside humanity that i think are just overwhelm us. We are overwhelmed by our own power. And you gotta put that ox in the plow. Make it do the stuff that doesn't want to do it. Just keeps it. What the hell do oxes do in the wild. I can't imagine they were happy. Checking twitter developing neuroses. Put it in the harness. Keep i mean i. I don't know a lot of my life is i. don't like getting depressed. I get depressed a lot. I hate the feeling and these routines the these very difficult routines whether it's exercise so writing and both of them are things words like it. It's brutal is another thing. I was explaining to my daughter. She's she's frustrated. That writing is so difficult because no one told her that it's the most difficult thing in the world. It's the most difficult thing in the world is to right people. Tell you to right like you can do it like you're supposed to be able to do it. Nobody can do it. It's impossible the greatest people in the world can't do it so if you're gonna do what you should. I be told what you're attempting to do is incredibly difficult. One of the most difficult things. There is way harder than weight training. Way harder. what you're summoning trying to summon within your brain and your spirit to create something onto a blank page. So that's another part of my systems. Ation technique learned how to encourage yourself. That's why you don't tell someone what you wrote. Be proud of yourself encourage it. Treat yourself well for having done that. Horrible horribly impossible thing would have to imagine. And maybe this step projection. Because i hope that. When i have kids which i don't have yet that this will be true for me but that being kind to your creative self an offering positive reinforcement for yourself through the process would affect how you parent i would have to imagine. Yes yes unfortunately. We seem to have lost the lou gossett side of parenting pesky child protective services. What do they know. But yeah it's similar. You wanna be very encouraging but you also want to explain. There are laws in life that you need to know about or your. It's going to hurt. I think one of the better lines. I've come up with over my life. Is that pain is knowledge rushing into fill a void with great speed. Can you say that one more time please. Pain is knowledge rushing in to fill a void. You don't know that that host of your bed was not where you thought. It was a when your foot headset. That knowledge is gonna come rushing in really fast in a really hurt when your foot hits that posts a piece of knowledge that you didn't have a you're going to get you're about to get either talking about black stellian and learning to ride like stallion. Lets you be broken yourself by your superpowers slash potential murderers. I've struggled with depression for decades and have found some respect in the last five or six years for a whole host of reasons but aside from the writing in weight training. Is there anything else that has contributed to your ability to either stave off or mitigate depressive episodes or manage no. I still got him. So the the best thing i ever heard about it was that it's part of a kit that comes with a creative aspect to the brain that a tendency to depression seems to always accompany that. I read that like twenty years ago and that really made me happy. So i realized well i wouldn't have all this other good stuff without that. That's just comes in the kit that you have been a tendency to depression. But i think it's fair to say that i don't know a human that doesn't have the tendency. I'm sure it varies. I have a number of friends who are in comedy and a lot of them are afraid of getting any type of treatment or taking antidepressants. Because they worry that it would rob them of their comedic insight. I don't know if that's something you've run into yourself. Or is it more that you accept it as a natural byproduct or companion to the sensitivity. I would agree with a a chemical intervention in Stabilize your mood. I would be nervous about that. Also and the ties. Which does you know as we all know. There are many other better remedies that you know. Basically a pair of running shoes is probably better than any of the drugs. They have on the market depending on the severity. of course. yeah or at least make sure that you're adding those elements into your life. Since i think we all know people who take anti-depressants in our stole depressed so it's worthwhile to kick off the bigger boxes behaviorally speaking you don't think depression it's really a creative source. I think irritability crankiness right not depressed. Depression's just an annoying thing. We have the alwa. You gave me a quote. I'll ask you one more question and then we can. We can go a little more. I'm joining the such. Let's go let's do it. I'd love to ask about following up on depression. I love to ask about failure just to keep this bright and shiny at can you think of how a particular failure or parent failures set you up for later. Success in other words. Do you have a favorite failure of any type. Something that seemed catastrophic at the time that in fact set you up for great things later. Yeah yeah i have a couple really good ones. And there's another thing. I try and teach the kids you know and something happens on. I think of all the things. I would trade. If you could take your experiences and asked to trade amend the last ones i would trade would be the failures. Those are the most valuable ones. When i moved to la. I was only doing comedy for years. But i had built up a pretty good reputation in new york and new york was really in those days. Still very much the miners to l. a. Which was the majors. And so i went out to la and People talk that. I was coming and that i was. You know one of the hot guys coming out of new york. And i was only doing it for years. You know twenty five years old. I mean i really still just starting and the comedy store was the club. La that you had to break into that. That was the club and the guys that work there and the women were killers. These people made the room just shake with laughter. It was very intimidating to go on there. And i went on there and i did very well. You know in those days you would you would call and they would give you spots if you were good and i would never get spots. We like one spot a week and you know once a week. It's like one push up a week. Don't even bother so. I asked to meet with. Mitzi shore the owner of the club and person who ran the whole thing there and she said to me she said i'm the kind of person that needs to get stepped on and That's what unit you need someone to step on you and i'm going to be that person. And she said if you called and said via had four spots available and you call them. I would give all four spots to this other guy. She mentioned this other guy. And i sat there in her office and i nodded. Not am i said well. I won't mention the name of the guy. She said she was going to give the four spots to joe. I said well if maybe he can't do all four. I'll be happy to take any the ones he can't do. And i walked out of there. And i never worked at the comedy store again and saying you're not working at the comedy store in la. It's like saying. I wanna be a baseball player. But not the majors. The majors in the united states. I'm going to pry trade someplace else lift. Lithuania yeah and so from there. I went from. I hope. it doesn't sound their modest from being absolutely at the top of the heap in new york city to playing at discos in the basement in la to like eight people but my resentment and hostility to her. I was a guy who i would say. I was a a three day a week. Guy and terms of my writing discipline in those days. And i went from three days a week. Two seven right there and i was like our pay. We're not this is this is i was angry. I was angry. I was frustrated. I was resentful. I used that was just fuel for me. She wasn't stopping me. Nobody was going to stop me but when someone is that hostile to you that can be a very good thing. If you're tough enough to eat shit. And say i'm and she's not stopping me. A great story. I it makes me think alexa hanan. Co-founded read it and at one point early on there were super excited about. Of course their company their baby. They'd put all of their waking hours into it. And they met with some yahoo executive who is basically just fishing for inside information and at some point in the meeting. This exact said. Oh there's your traffic. Oh that's a rounding error for us and alexis and guys took a huge. They made a poster that said you are a rounding error and put it on the office. It worked it worked to what then transpired after you went from three days a week to seven days a week. When did you get a glimmer of hope or vindication. The tonight show saw me and every comedian in the world wanted to get on the tonight show in the of seventies and eighties. It was the only way out of the clubs to real gigs. Was to be on the tonight show. The clubs was working for free right free zero. That's not really the object. The object is to get paid tablets professional on your own. When you're on the tonight show you going from the service road to lane. Want no more. No more applebee's in five minutes. And i told that story in the book to what that felt like. You know my favorite sporting thing. I'm baseball maniac. But the hundred meters in the olympics is a thing. I i love. I love the hundred meters. And that's what happens when you did the tonight show in those days. You i i. When i see lindsey vonn at the top of a mountain nor i see those guys kicking their legs. When they're in the blocks you know. I know what that feels like. And i'm very grateful that i know that you know if you're an adrenaline junkie. Which i am. There's no good comedian. That isn't that's a big treat in life to know how that feels that. I'm going to change my whole life in the next three minutes. How many times did you rehearse that. Three minute segment of material. I mean i would imagine you must have done it a thousand times before you thousand. Yeah did you ever have another conversation with mitzi shore or did any did you ever convey any message to her and or have any communication. I did when. I got my tv series in the nineties. I moved up to this fantastic house in the hollywood hills. That overlooked all of la. Every day i would drive down the hill to go to the studio to work on the show. I would see mitzi taking her walk on a nearby street that we happen to have in common and right would always give her a nice look now. Wouldn't rain over hong but our is no men. Maybe she was right. Maybe i did need someone to step on. Why did she respond that way. That's just seem so aggressive. Did you do anything. I would never be the broken the type of broken winged bird that she wanted to have in hurt little chicken. Coop of dysfunction was the calmly. Days a i was not built like that all online. It'd be a stand up. Comic is because i wanted to say to myself and to the world. I don't need you. I can do this myself. And the comedy store was filled with people that needed her. The comedy world knows as was a druggie. Yeah it's a very dysfunctional world. The comedy world. Because you taking these people that that that can't fit in they. Can't you know they have this one skill and then you put them in a situation where they can get anything they want and if so whatever. Dysfunctional chemical sexual you're lazy a broken. You're messed up. Now you got you have no structure around to fix it you. You're out in the world. You're completely on your own joe. It's designed break human beings. Stand up comedy. It's a perfect way to break a person. Psychologically i've only been to the comedy store wants us brought there by a friend and i went into one of the backrooms. I'm sure you would know the name of this room. But they listed off a whole lot of old names. I wanna to say sam kennison and a bunch of others and they said this is where they use. The this is the green room blah blah blah blah blah and. There was this huge table with a mirror. Top with thousands of scratches on it and not from fingernails. And you just think god if you don't have rails to stay on i mean pun intended. I guess the environment is just designed to destroy and yes. That's part of the fun. Also the mogul. If you it's like you're efficient. The hudson it's it's it's a toxic environment. The instead ask the attrition is ruutel. you never have to say. I don't get why people like this comedian. Don't worry don't worry you don't have to comment on it. The the environment itself will correct. It is a self correcting ecosystem of toxic water. The self sufficiency our desire for self sufficiency that you give voice to the proving to others. You don't need that you can do it on your own. Seems to be very sharp contrast to a lot of entertainers including comics. Who seem to have a lot of codependency. They need the audience to validate like they need life support if they had respiratory collapse and was that perspective and that character or constitution rare. I have to say the constitution is is kinda rare. But i also have to say i don't know anyone who made it over a long period of time. That didn't have it and that's another thing. That kind of led me to the lease. The weight training aspect. I think it builds your constitution Yeah the weight training. I just want to give credit. Where credit's due with bill phillips. I read that book longtime ago. This is before my second book which was on physical performance. And i was really impressed because it is to me first and foremost a book about behavioral modification and behavioral psychology. And it really nails those elements really well. And you know if i think back across the hundreds of interviews on this podcast whether it's bob iger in the world of business and heading disney or an athlete or otherwise if you look at the people who have really performed at a high level for decades Weight training seems to be one of the constants are one of the near constant. Yeah because you're deteriorated. Just trying to bend that curve a little bit. you know. i'm sixty six. I shouldn't be performing at this level at sixty six should be over the cheat the biology. Yeah sixty six. I never i mean i suppose i could have tried to do math. I never would've guessed. Do you just wake up some days and find that number to be unbelievable to or is it a foregone conclusion. I guess because you're in your body and go year by year. I find it funny and i find it very really makes the game fun. 'cause i know this should not be happening. I am getting away with murder. So i love. It really makes it. That's another thing i believe. We've talked about systematising. Game is another thing. i'm very big on. Let's make its game. You know whatever the problem is. Let's make it again to me. It's a fun game. I i honestly. I wouldn't say this around my family but i i don't care if i drop dead tomorrow. It's like i just wanted to. I still feel. I played the game. Well i wanna see. I just wanna feel like i played the game. Well what would be. An example of game mean i've read of course the about the seinfeld's productivity secret the marketing the cross is on the calendar which i guess some people. That's not really a game that's more a stat stats are good. If you want to improve anything my trainer. Adam right and i always liked to play this game. Well this was the maximum amount of weight you did three months ago for this many seconds or whatever and then it's like that's so it's a game now. Let's see if i can keep the reps going for thirty seconds. Last time was twenty five. So it's a little game it's just again. This goes back to my. The human brain is It's just a stupid little contraption that you can easily track as soon as you tell me. I did a twenty five seconds last time okay. Let's say if i can do thirty. It's not that's not intelligence. it's a stupid little machine. It's going to do that every single time every time you tell someone. Your last best was twenty five seconds. You're going to try for thirty well thinking back to the ox. Do when they're not in a yoke and tell disquieted be if they were checking twitter all day in the world of dog training. I know a couple of really high level dog trainers and one of the expressions. You here. it's kind of this mantra. Find the military or something which is a tire dog. A happy dog and just ensuring that. Your dog is properly exerted at night yes. I think there's a lot to that as a human also. If you're looking at gamification in the let's just say the fitness realm are there other ways that you've applied that to your creative for professional work. I guess you have these logs. So it away i mean you have. Yeah but i don't believe i don't score myself creatively. I don't believe in that at this kinda gets into my thoughts on material. I don't know if this will eliminate this for you but one time I love to go on stage at gotham and hearing about the vaccine today. Got me very excited. That maybe i'll be going back there soon. On twenty third street in the in the city. And that's what. I like to play with material so i always. I'll go there and i'll and i'll go on stage. I'll do twenty or thirty minutes of just working on and then i like to take questions from the audience. When i perform for gigs. It's the audiences are too big really. Take questions it's too difficult a room of a couple of our links. You can take questions so one night. This guy says to me He says when you go back to the same city twice the ever worry that they're gonna see the same show you did last time or how do you know what you did. And how do you know when it's time to take a piece of material out of iraq that you've been doing it too long and it needs to be retired and you should do something else and you know. And he's kind of reasonable questions a from a A regular person and i said So these pieces. I would i was doing tonight i said. Do you think that you could think of things similar to this. And the guy says. Oh god no not in a million years and i'm yeah that's what i was thinking. What the the point. What's the warriors. I'm going on stage and i'm doing these beds however long. It took me to figure this stupid bit out. You know and many years. I've been doing which i don't even know. Just be glad. I'm doing that. You know it's good thing. It's a good thing so this goes to my nurturing side of the equation if you're stage and standing in front of a group of strangers and trying to make them laugh. God bless you. I don't give a shit what you do. I don't care if it's all of new stuff. I don't care if you dirty if you're clean if you're gonna stand up there by yourself and try and make me laugh. I love you. And i'm not going to criticize anything. You do a bit on that. I'm not going to criticize it and you shouldn't criticize yourself either so another. There's no to go back to fi. No it's always a win. If i got up there and tried to do it i win. Even if i didn't reached what. I'm trying to reach. Even if i to me it's a four out of ten show. I still pat myself on the back. Four still win and still when you hear the word successful who comes to mind for you and why could be parents could be outside of parents could be anybody but for you when you hear that word. Is there anyone who is really a to the paragon of what you would consider success or someone you have looked up to as someone who's successful. Well that's a pretty broad. Hyper hyper broad. It comes down to kind of how you define it also you know. I think. I don't know if i mean it as a joke but i say a lot these days. Survival is the new success. Yup and i'm a big look timothy momma tell you in my business if you are sixty plus or i'll even if you're fifty five and you're getting paid to work paid well you have crushed it. Yeah so stand up comedy. You know this i i would. I would move this piece of our conversation next to the toxic ecosystem right of of this world. When you have seen the attrition that i have seen it's like in the heart of the say you know that book. Yup ron howard made the movie. When when they're dropping like flies and the the the handful that small handful somebody asked me the other day. How many people who whose careers were made on the tonight show with. Johnny carson are still working. I didn't want to answer the question. So longevity is what. I 'cause 'cause you had it i mean you had it you had you had it so once you have it you can only lose it. You know you can only fail to take care of it when we get to health and work ethic and managing yourself so that you don't break because they're trying to break you. I always tease and my friend. Jimmy fallon that. This is like a sick experiment. These talk show gig. Let's let's take a human being put him in a studio for decades knowing an hour of television a day and let see what breaks. It's it's sick. it's a sex human experiment. I go up hope job. Who it's like. They just do it until you're dead the forever skinner box. Yeah that's brittle i mean. There's a fantastic book about. Stand up that i read during the virus called seriously funny and the guy writes only about communities of the fifties and sixties and the introduction of that book which is like twenty pages long and he goes through woody and lenny and joan rivers and all these great people and how it broke one after the other one after the other was broken by it that they either will worn out or their brains cracked or their psychology cracked. Or you know it just took them apart. It's a very very difficult. Profession to sustain in. Stow jots toots five to me is the game. That's my concept of success. did you beat them at their. They're they're they're just they designed this thing to kill you. Try to travel. You realize what it takes to travel to go to the airport in an in your fifties and sixties to fly on planes to go to strange cities to go to hotels to put on a suit to go out on stage at eight o'clock at night and run around and yell you know and project your physical energy for an hour in front of thousands of people. They're trying to kill you. So i have made it into a game like it's it's like mitzi. I'm gonna step on you and i went. No no i'm gonna step on you. Suppose ring that's life life is they're trying to kill you. You get this free ride till you're let's be generous forty three and then god you know what i'm gonna move on to the people in their sixteen to twenty three and i'm going to give them my best. If you wanna hang around you can hang around. But i'm not giving anything anymore. Now you wanna stick around. But i never okay you you figure it out So this this caught attention. Because i'm exactly forty three so perfect. Oh yeah the. I'm not gonna ask you to leave but i got nothing for you seriously. Funny even these fifteen year old girls amazing stuff and the boys. I'm gonna give them crazy by that. That's my focus. My focus is fifteen year olds turning them into superhumans. You with you. I'm the eight foot sturgeon in the hudson. Barely limping along No one's going to ask you to leave. We're not giving food. there was no health. Survival is the new success. If you have time for one or two questions then we'll we'll i bring this to a close. I need to go do some interval training lead some lentils. This is question that sometimes hits a dead end. And i'll take the blame for that. If does you've already given a bunch of possible answers to this. But if you had a billboard metaphorically speaking that could get a message quote an image question anything out to billions of people. What might you put on that billboard back in the eighties. I had a friend who was teaching a comedy. Course at the improv. Melrose in la and he asked me. If i would come in and talk to the class. And i said sure. I went in ica immi twenty people in the class in the in the afternoon and i went up on stage and i said the fact that you have even signed up for this class is a very bad. Sign what you're trying to do the fact that you think anyone can help you or there's anything that you need to learn. You have gone off on a bad track because nobody knows anything about any of this and if you wanna do it what i really should do is. I should have a giant flag behind me that i would pull a string and it would roll down an on the flag would just say two words just work just work were yeah i love it will. That is i. Think an excellent place to wrap up jerry. People can find you on all the socials. Twitter instagram facebook. At jerry seinfeld the new book is is this anything which features your best work across five decades. That's nuts in comedy. And it's a fascinating book and a hell of a ride. I recommend people check it out for anyone. Who's a student of creative process. Doesn't have to be comedy but kraft whatever that craft happens to be. I think you are real exemplar of just doing the work but doing it in this also a systematic way which is a particular species of working that i think makes beautiful case study and this has been so much fun for me. I i really appreciate you taking the time jerry. Thanks so it was a rough talking with you. Tim and your podcast is the best. Thanks so much. It really makes day to have the chance to have conversation with you. I've had the bass riff from seinfeld going through my head all day in in prep for this. And it's a real gift that you're showcasing and sharing your notes with the world over such a period of time. I mean it is. I think something that will really provide like you said just work but nonetheless will provide so much so much help to an inspiration to people who are just setting out unlike the forty three year. Old eight-foot sturgeon those fifteen year olds and fifteen to twenty year olds. And i will let you get back to your day but this has been great and please do.

You can't count on them. Reality takes another hit as gop members. Wayne county michigan. File affidavits saying. They didn't want to certify the vote after they certified the vote i site trained rakes becomes the site of a train wreck twelve days after a disastrous press conference. There's a petition to give historic status to four seasons total landscaping which had no intention of changing the political landscape and fell swoop. After driving a seventy five foot. Christmas tree from upstate. New york to downtown manhattan a truck driver discovers a resident in its branches. A small disoriented our as it happens. The thursday radio that figures. The ordeal was enough to make its head spin. Michelle basta rash has taken a look at the rcmp and concluded it's time to rethink the future of the force today. The former supreme court judge delivered a report that says quote a toxic culture prevails in the rcmp encourages or at least tolerates misogynistic racist and homophobic attitudes among many members unquote justice bester ashes work results from the settlement of a class. Action lawsuit brought by current and former rcmp officers. It includes evidence of widespread sexual misconduct including more than one hundred. Thirty acts of penetrative sexual violence rcmp. Commissioner brenda lucky was asked about that shocking number this afternoon. It's really really troubling to hear that 'cause those women and live through that and that's totally unacceptable and again i see that's why i've been this position because i wanna make that change and there's no room for such action cannot and will not be tolerated and i am. I angry with with things in this report and so frustrated. I feel i feel so bad for what has happened in in an organization that i'm in my thirty fifth year and i i read this i it's not it doesn't surprise me because we knew About obviously about the lawsuit. And i've talked to many women who have personally told me their story but still when you see those numbers on paper it is not easy to see. It's not easy to live within. Its shame shame on and so we need to do better. We got to non negotiable. We have to do better and we will. That was rcmp. Commissioner brenda lucky earlier today. Janet merlo is one of the former. Rcmp officers who became the representative plaintiffs in the class action. Suit that resulted in today's report. We reached ms marlowe. Nbc and a warning. Parts of this interview are disturbing. Janet way is your reaction to hearing commissioner lucky which you had to say today I totally understand her frustration and anger. I've had communication with her a coupla times. When i've been trying to help some women who've reached out to me and she's been very receptive and she has tried and she has made some changes in their lives to help them out. But i think on a grander scale. What we heard today from bill blair justin trudeau and brenda. Lucky is just more rhetoric unless they get up there and say yes we have failed. We will bring in an independent entity to clean up the police force. Anything less than that is not acceptable in the report. Michelle best rash says. The problem is systemic in nature and cannot be corrected by punishing a few bad apples. In fact what he describes in this is that it's so widespread that it would take a major overhaul to reverse the misogynistic racist homophobic attitudes that he cites among members of the. How do you bring about change at this point in the icm. I've been at this class action process since two thousand twelve and of all the women that i've listened to in heard their stories i have not heard of one person who has been investigated suspended charged or fired for harassment. Not one. there's not one woman who has come to me and said i made a complaint and this was done nothing there are still women reaching out almost weekly. In what i call some level of hell in the rcmp reaching out to me. Because they don't trust the system at his after what more than the thousands of women have already received compensation from the rcmp for the abuse. They suffered and you're saying that you don't know of anyone who's actually face the consequences for having been a harasser. Not one i. I would love for the rcmp to provide some statistics to show true investigations. That they say you know bob and got up and did his terry apology. Three years ago in. Ottawa and vowed that the fist of god would would come down on people who harass and. I have not heard of one case where that has happened. When you say that this is some level of hell what do you mean by that. People are stuck in the rcmp. And i don't even just mean women. There are men who are just in a really tough situation whether they're being targeted harassed bullied assaulted and they have nowhere to go to the because the process itself does nothing and have they cannot speak out because then they'll be punished for being in subordinate. So they're in the level of hell and stuck there because they have an with ongoing harassment and they have nowhere to turn. Is it possible for everything to change unless they recognize that. This is so systemic and so serious. That did this the toxic environment that mr best arash sites in this report of broken dreams broken lives no absolutely not and to call these people bad apples one hundred thirty one rapes. That's not bad apples. That's sexual violence that's criminal. It's it's we go out and arrest people and when we arrest them for sexual offenses. There's a program that they are entered into called v class and they're listed in the computer system as a sexual offender. There are hundred and thirty one potential police officers who've raped women and they should be arrested and have classes done on them. They should be in the system at as sexual offenders. Who is your own experience. I know you've talked about this a lot. You've written a whole book. You have given masterclasses on what it was like for you but if you could just give us just a a a a of what it was like. He was a woman in the force when when pregnant with our first daughter I was brought in the node. After my first trimester the note to be taken off the road. Because you can't put on a gun belt and go out and take calls and risk losing your child so at that point when you announce your pregnancy you get moved to an office job well. I was cursed at and screamed at in name called and told if i wanted to have a career in the police force that i you know as either gonna have a career or is going to pop out kids my whole life in the and then he told me to get out of his office as i was leaving the office he He said the next time. I have a suggestion for you the next time. Keep your effing legs closed. And i was so thrilled about that pregnancy and just took all that away in an instant and for the wrist until i went on maternity leave. I went in that office every day with my head down ashamed of myself and then they would say oh. We got a call. Can you take it. Oh merlo can't take it. She's knocked up. And then. When i went i had my daughter and went back to work when i went back to work. The questions merlot. Can you take that caller in knocked up again. You know i. I was happily married having family. And that's what was said over and over again and that's just one example are girls are five years apart because there is no way in hell. I was going to get pregnant again in the second child until some management near. Cfp moved on. Because there is no way. I could go in with the note again and say that i was pregnant. I it impacts your whole life on the level that the rcmp doesn't even realized you know. I've lost friends. I have french. Shoot herself two years ago. Someone in the force in the someone in the icmp. Yes my friend. Kristy curly might troop mate. She said that her house outside victoria. She shot herself. Drc mp pays money in the spew a bunch of rhetoric abode about how they're going to change a modernized before you modernize something you have to eliminate the criminal element within it and so this day of seeing this report. What does it mean to you. You know when. I wrote my book and i held in my hand for the first time. I just totally broke down because it was it went from my head and my heart into something. I could put on shelves and not carry with me. And when i held that report the other day when i got the bound copy i had the exact same feeling like like this is a culmination of a lot of blood sweat and tears and if this doesn't change anything god damn it we tried. We try their best. We took it to the highest court in the country. And if they can't see that they don't need to bring in external people to fix this mess than. I don't know what it's gonna take janet. I admire your courage. And i really appreciate speaking with you. Thank you thank you bye bye. Bye jenner merlo is a former rcmp. Officer It's highly unusual for the wayne. County board of canvassers in michigan. To be getting this much attention but these are highly unusual times in the united states. Wayne county includes detroit and ever since president trump lost michigan. He's been making baseless accusations about the election there today. His team claimed victory announced announcing it would be dropping a federal lawsuit in michigan after wayne county failed to certify its results but the county's democratic and republican canvassers certify the results on tuesday and according to a spokesperson for the secretary of state that certification will stand despite the fact that the two republican members of the board have rescinded their votes and filed affidavits. I know it's confusing. So we called jonathan kinloch. He's one of the two democratic canvassers on the board and we reached him in detroit michigan law. Did you ever imagine that the wayne county board of canvassers would become the center of an epic political battle absolutely not in most census. What we do is pretty quiet and easygoing okay. So it wasn't so easy going on tuesday. Was it so just briefly. Tell us what happened and why. You're two republican colleagues. Would not certify vote in my opinion in even as we are here today it truly is was based upon the influence of their party. And that is something that this or of campuses have taken pride over the years to make sure that we represented the interest of the people. I and not just fall into the usual political party. In partisan politics. This was highly unusual. The national party on the republican side at least trolls to insert themselves into what is usually a mundane and just on basic process of reviewing the filings of the local clerks and certifying election results and unfortunately they have turned what has occurred here in america since the election of president donald trump. They have turned. The norms upside prohibits turned it on. Its it can. You just remind people how the vote did Come down in wayne. County between donald trump. And joe biden. I'll have the number physical. Have the numbers in front of me right now. So you know yes. It was a believe like three hundred and eighty eight thousand votes. Vote difference between the two. I believe there's no practical way for donald trump to reverse the results of what occurred on election night in wayne. County is only because donald trump has been attacking across the united states Black communities attack and brown on voters and trying to basically change the outcome and That's not gonna happen is is just insane to think that we're right here dealing with this. I just a few more details about that. That extraordinary Event that evening. I one point the republican canvasser. Monica palmer said that she would certify the results in the communities other than the city of detroit. Why did that particular comment draws outrage. Maybe give us a background to that background of. That goes back a hundred years in this country for black people. It is a history Of the black suffrage is a history of on the plight of the black men and women trying to get their their fair and just right to cast their ballots. There's a pain that's still runs deep when you talk about trying to just throw out or ignore in any fashion on the black vote. And so that's where the lot of those comments came from that came from a place of history and a place of pain and because sistani of fighting for our unabridged right to vote and the comments you referring to these are the election workers who are both in the room and those who are on on the zoom. Call that were saying that. This is As you say this is a slap in the face. They said that they had worked for sixteen hours a day through the pandemic to check and double check these results and one caller said. This is what racism looks like. How did the how did monica palmer. And the other republican. How did they respond to that. Well they responded in what i thought was the right response. They changed their vote but I believe after they left the lefty canvas and if we adjourn receive pressure to hearing that they have gotten a call from president trump. And they're right now. They're trying to do something that they can't do. And that is to change their vote from This in the certification of the election. I mean this is a very big disappointment on the on the wrong side of history and It is just it's just it's just unimaginable that these people would actually be trying to do what they're doing today. And in fact i think monica palmer one of the republican canvasser. She confirmed with the washington post that she did receive a phone call from donald trump but was only about to see how she was wasn't to put pressure on her. What do you make of that. At this point. I have no on phase released to their communication and contact with their party on their president. And who's part. Who's the head of their party. I believe since the beginning of this canvas since the beginning of this canvas on. They've done even before they've done everything they could to assist on donald trump in winning election. I don't have any face confidence. Anything they say at this particular point on tuesday. You did it at some point to convince them to to certify the vote and Before they changed their minds or said that they wanted to change their minds. How did you do that. What did they say that you promise them that there would be an audit of the vote and that that was the only reason why they agreed to actually certify the vote what happened there i am johnson. Chinlock member of the wayne county board of canvassers. They know as we all know that it is the secretary of state who we had to contact. In order to make that request we haven't even made the requests yet So we had agreed to do what we did In similar fashion in the primaries to make a request to certify the election and that ask our make additional requests on for an audit a comprehensive audit and so on that requests heading even hadn't been twenty four hours before they decided to your call for their attempt to change their vote. Some of the things that monica palmer comments. She's made she's saying that she's just wants to make sure the vote is correct. It's accurate that. She has issued concerns in the past about discrepancies. That's all she's interested in. It has no pressure at all from outside was entirely her own doing. Why are you so convinced that in fact it was pressure from republicans. It made her make this decision because as soon as the voted. I'm not to approve. They certification she That that the part that the republican party and the president immediately. I believe about ten minutes after the vote took place on there. Were social media post on congratulating them and In regards to that vote on you cannot tell me that they did not have a conversation. I this is what you signed up for when he became the vice chairperson of the wayne. County board of canvassers. What does this past two days been like for you is. It's been so unreal. Over the past six years that have been on this board with previous republicans. We never even you know. Let party issues Even come into play when When it came to us doing our jobs. I can't wait until january twentieth. Where new prison kicks off his and then we began to heal this country. We believe the mr kinloch. Thank you thank you. Jonathan kinloch the vice chairperson of the wayne county board of canvassers. He's a democrat. We reached him in detroit. Michigan in a statement reported by the associated press the two republican canvassers who rescinded their votes said quote. We deserve better. But more importantly the american people deserve better than to be forced to accept an outcome achieved through intimidation deception and threats of violence wayne county. Voters need to have full confidence in this process. Unquote joke part. The christmas tree in rockefeller square hasn't just stirred up. A hornet's nest stirred up a bird's nest as well last night on the show. We told you about the seventy five foot tall norway spruce which has come in for a lot of needling from new yorkers it's patchy and balding and as one person put it a metaphor for twenty twenty but while people were mocking the outside of the tree ellen kayla was busy taking care of something that came from incited a little owl ellen calluses the owner of the ravens beard wildlife center. We reached her in saugerties new york ellen. How is rockefeller the owl doing today. Rockefeller is doing really well We couldn't be more pleased with his progress He's eating drinking. He's taken a little best by himself. he's just enjoying all the food and You know is is on deck for the release. And he's a very tiny little guy is the baby now. he's full grown. This is the smallest of the else we have here in the northeast with. What's called the our. What kind of now is it's a song. What and so how. How did you find out about the owl. I got a phone call out of the blue from someone who Husband was working on the tree. I guess they were the transport and team for Hooking it up to the crane and and getting it to stand up and as they were working you know unwrapping and the tree apart they found this little owl attached to one of the branches They tried to set it free and it didn't fly away so at that point. The workmen called his wife and asked her if she would do some phone. Call to find out where there was a a local rehab for that they could Bring the owl too. So we thought he was going to be damaged when when we got him and by sear christmas miracle. nothing was broken. What kind of now he. I've seen a video or some tape of his journey. This big huge flatbed truck where this seventy five foot. Norway spruce is being transported. And so my gosh. What what do you think. That was like for him to go to manhattan. Yesterday i'm sure it was quite a shock But we we don't know the whole story and we never will You know as some people have have offered you know he could have flown into the tree. while it was parked overnight And then maybe gotten entangled So he couldn't get out until they opened the tree up or he he could have been in the tree and had a mild concussion fell. He could have been hiding in a tree cavity. So there's so many options We're really not sure. But we have a feeling that he did not fly into the tree. from new york city With all the construction and lights and you know it would not be a place. An owl would seek to hide not manhattan now now but we did speak to the woman who actually the founding donated. It said that the tree. She said one of the reasons why he looked so bad when it was when it was set up was because it had been wrapped up for about a week so i wonder if that al had been trapped in there for that long before thing it very well very well could have yeah. We'll never know we just know. He was dehydrated and hungry so we are now feeding them up and we're going to release them with a full belly. I and the other thing people were saying that this this this treatment went up. This said it was kind of a sad shaggy tree that was it kind of fitting symbol of twenty twenty but now do you think finding this beautiful little creature the middle of it is even as is maybe a nice guy symbol something else that might emerge from this horrible year. We're in i agree. I agree and i think that's what made me share. The story on on social media was that it was such a positive Positive story and you know with hope and the new year coming up and you know just this. The the fact that the l. was not done damaged beyond repair. It could have gone the other way and we could have you know could have had to put him down so at this. You know for this to just be such a a great story from start to finish has just been a gift i think to the world. We needed it. We did and now. When is rockefeller going to be released this weekend. Depending on the weather he's going to be released right here. in a nice pine forest They like the pine trees for cover and Win protection snow protection. You know this is where they hide all day and then at night they come out and do their hunting so he may look like a cute little furby but underneath all that. He's an amazing predator. Well he has stories now to tell of his trip absolutely and because they're no matter it doesn't matter where release them they do their hunting and within you know a couple days off to another state or another area they don't make for life so we felt it. You know rather to put him for another two hour ride in the car and stress and so on that we're just going to release him here in our twelve acres and He will find his own way in the world and he'll be on the road again. Absolutely yes yes allen. It's great to talk to you. Thank you thank you so much ellen. Kayla is the owner of the ravens beard wildlife center. She was in saugerties new york and have more on.

The australian defence forces apologized unreservedly to the people of afghanistan a new report reveals that at least thirty nine on afghan civilians were executed by elite australian soldiers in a special forces unit. The reports author major general justice. Paul brereton recommends. Those soldiers be investigated for the killings. The report found evidence of initiation for new soldiers who were told to shoot afghan prisoners to get their first kills. It also found that weapons were planted near afghan bodies to cover up crimes. If it wasn't for samantha chrome fits. The report would never have come to light. She's a military sociologist. Whose interviews with soldiers revealed layers of misconduct in afghanistan. we reached dr confidence in sydney akron. Fats what does it mean for you personally that these horrific abuses by the elite australian soldiers are now being acknowledged publicly by your defense department in your government. I think it's it's both vindicating me and also really sad and vindicating for you. Why because when my report was initially will. It was late to the australian may. Dr couple of years ago there was a lot of slander and attempts to discredit me. That what i would had suggested had happened on what my reporting was was false in that. I couldn't possibly have nine. Because i was a woman a female civilian who'd never been to war and yet you were able to get this shocking report of what happened as horrible as these. These allegations are i. Can you give us a sense of what you discovered. So what was described to me. Were behaviors that were a premeditated repeated deliberate targeted executions of unarmed people the retrofitting of weapons on people that had been killed so it looked like they were armed at the time. What would lanting the brightening inquiries also a culture of jinya soldiers almost like an initiation being made to execute prisoners to achieve fest. Kill this is. It was called Encouraging these other soldiers in afghanistan to to blood. What does that mean to do that. That's what they were fed to those sort of initiations as as being blooded or blood ings just to give some of the numbers that the because it's just so disturbing that looks like thirty nine non armed afghans were murdered or killed in twenty three different incidents and there are about two dozen but twenty-five alleged perpetrators of these incidences. That right that's right. And there's my understanding is that the those who pulled the trigger as it's described also those who perhaps ordered them to do it so by of them. How is it possible that so many of these elite forces could be involved in this for such a long period of time. How is it n-. Nobody reported it. So this i mean what's come out in. The inquiry is that they soldiers are exceptional at concealing what they did but more than that. There were problems with the site of those units. All those those patrols there was a lot of lying in reporting embellishing reports so when that would report any incidents for the day they might lie about whether or not the person was armed or not they would make it look like it was legal and justified. There was a complete breakdown of how people did assessments of complaints. They found you know the people doing those assessments with completely inadequate to them. There are a number of of anecdotes and stories in this barrington. Report for you are. Is there anyone anyone of these stories. In particular that characterizes the kind of horrible things that you encounter in the course of this work the competition killing the to maybe the most disturbing and even when i was doing the interviews that very initial report it was the way it was described to me as normal and is happening all the time. That's what was distressing. Would we mean competition killings like between they would compete for how many people i could kill and these are not combat combatants. These are not killing taliban active soldiers these killing civilians. Yes that's right. There is is one example. That's in here. That of soldiers using a an afghan man as for target practice. How disturbing with how. How did you find out that story. How did that come about all of the stories that were told to me. We don sorry by people who clearly had carried this for a long time. it had a huge beden And and it sort of it happened over a number of months where people would just contact me make them so it could be very confidential and anonymous and that was the only way that i felt safe to tell their stories. And what did they tell you about the culture within those special forces that it was deeply problematic. A warrior coach. But it was. It was about a latest It was about them being isolated almost from the rest of army having different rules and then they becomes very blurred. line of. what's you know what's okay. And what's not and this sense of entitlement to do whatever they wanted. And it had just gone unchecked for too long view described that this was Within the rank and file that the there was no doesn't doesn't appear to be a command responsibility here in what could amount to being war-crimes if if that's where it goes but some point this isn't the culture is created by the military right. It's created by the department and the sense impunity. Which appears to be. The case doesn't have to be put at the doorstep of those who chose the people recruited. This is elite soldiers and created that culture. Yes it does General campbell in his address yesterday spoke about collective accountability. That there does need to be that high. A command accountability responsibility immoral one. If nothing else and one of the things that special have done already In response to the east changed the way that they are training and selecting people. Can you imagine how disturbing this is for. People have ghanistan to learn that this was going on because many of them would have known. This was happening right this this would have. They would have been able to see or know that innocent people were being killed what affecting it's had on them learning this report. I think it's devastating. And i think it it's undermined out reputation and there's a lot of wet today to repair. And where do you think this report should go from here. Well i mean there's a couple of things obviously that the legal aspect of things in the prosecution's that will follow in that mindset. That will take some time and then the work that they need to do on me needs to doing tunneling to regain the trust of the australian people and also make sure that this never happens again appreciate speaking with you. Thank you thanks. For having me samantha. Chrome fits is military sociologist in sydney australia. Her initial interviews with special forces soldiers formed the basis of a damning new report released. This week alleging nine. Afghan civilians murdered by australian special forces. Oh arianne dilmun doesn't have a background in politics. In fact she doesn't have a background in much yet. She's six years old but that didn't stop her from putting pressure on the delta british columbia city council arianne started a petition to have a crosswalk installed on a busy street and the city council listened at their last meeting. They announced that an assessment is in the works ariane deal men and her mother carmel spoke with. Cbc vancouver abo- why she wants a crosswalk. Well i won. It and i was worried that people might wait until somebody gets hit to put up a crosswalk now. How often do you cross that. St i class these times a day. Has there been any times where you've been worried crossing the street Run my brother. Wesley was in the dike into class. And a on the corner in the horribly. I intend to west. You got hit. That must have been pretty scary. Yeah especially you like really scared. Because he's pretty braced team a lot. So what did you think when the city of delta says that they were the study your suggestion to put across walking pretty happy and thanks for. I actually happened as my. She was the one who is walking with them on the day. That and had referenced when my son was on a bike and arianne had asked her You know how do you make a crosswalk happening. I guess my mother-in-law must have said we really need to cross canadian. Well how do we get one until my mother-in-law had said well i think usually people will write petitions to this city and then area and said can i write a petition. And then she wrote the petition herself and she started going to people in the park that afternoon. Asking them to find it. And then i suggested we go to the neighbor's In our complex in the neighboring complex and iran was who went up and knocked on all the doors and gave her explanation for the petition and got all those signatures yourself. Cvc's justin mcelroy speaking with six year old area and dilmun and her mom carmel ooh and and then there will be none today. The trudeau government introduced legislation. It says we'll provide the framework for reducing canada's net emissions to zero the law would require governments to commit to five year plans aimed at hitting that zero target by twenty fifty but canada has a history of missing its climate targets and the new law doesn't include a penalty for failure. Jonathan wilkinson is the federal environment minister. We reached him in ottawa wilkinson. We heard their prime minister. Described the bill as an accountability framework that will ensure we reach the net zero goal in a way that gives canadians confidence. But why is there then no penalty for failing to meet the targets. Well let me start by saying this for me. I'm somebody who actually spent twenty years working on clean technologies before. I got into politics and got into politics because of the climate issue. This is a very important day for me This is an important step. Forward that provides that there is going to be much more accountability and transparency. With respect to how governments address climate it creates legal obligations that did not exist before for governments. Actually not only set targets have plans which as we all know. The harper government did not have. There's a third party that actually will Will assess whether or not progress was made. It adds a whole series of of mechanisms. Through which governments will be accountable. And we'll be able to be held accountable by the electorate ultimate. The ultimate arbiter in in a democratic question was what wiser no penalty for failing to meet the targets because there are penalties. I mean what this does is it forces transparency accountability and it puts the decision making in the hands of the electors so that they can assess whether or not governments moving have moved forward on the commitments. They made the canadians. And they they are the ultimate arbiter through the election spurs. So that's the penalty. Is that you lose the election. The penalty is that that you will be penalized by the folks who put you in power. If you don't do the things that you say that you were going to do and this will actually require that. Governments are very transparent about the work that they're doing. This bill was put into place. There was no legal obligation for a government to set a target. There was no legal obligation to report on progress. This is only part. Obviously there has to be a climate plan that actually has strategic and thoughtful ways that we're going to sector-by-sector address the emissions. That is something we will be bringing forward in the coming weeks But this an important step forward for candidate right. This is you say they. Conservatives failed to meet the photo targets but yet in two thousand fifteen liberals made this commitment to reduce emissions in canada by thirty percent below two thousand and five levels by twenty thirty. You are according to your own government. You're not on track to meet those goals. Why should canadians believed that. The liberal government will do anything differently. Well i think first and foremost you might go in and have a look at the pancanadian framework which kind of lays out the climate plan that this government brought into place. It was the first real time to plan. This country's ever had identified two hundred and twenty five megatons and emissions reductions. But you're right. There was far that we needed to go. So the pancanadian with step one step two will be the plan that i will be presenting to canadian. Prime minister and i will be presented to canadians in the coming weeks. Which will demonstrate how we find those additional megatons and how we go beyond that because the architecture para says we need to do even more than what countries are committed to do at the at the beginning of the personal not even on target to meet the original commitment. So why should we believe that. This new commitment you are on target to meet. Well i i think what you can see in the plan. And it's on the website. It goes through fifty different initiatives that are focused on reducing emissions is that we are on track to reduce emissions by historic mount and that there are additional megatons. We need to find But we have made more progress in the last four years on climate change than any government in the history of this country. We know we need to do more. But you know you don't even have a goal for twenty twenty-five if these are in five year in emissions Goals and these reduction targets are every five years mandated in that way in this legislation. You don't even start one until A next government. Because you don't have one that is going to kick in until twenty twenty-five so why not start now. Well i heard that comment What i would say is the structure of the paris. Agreement is focused on twenty three. That is the architecture of paris provinces that have taken action on climate change or the ones that have have been most progressive in terms of addressing climate change twenty three targets so british columbia and quebec. But we all know that we need to think the on twenty thirty in terms of how you get from there to the net zero future that we need to achieve. I would also say though for folks who are actually talking about. Twenty twenty five is that we have provided that the commissioner of environment state of development. We'll do a report in two thousand twenty five whether the government is on track to meet that twenty thirty and we'll assess that and provide recommendation. Yeah but first of all. I mean if if you can't start in five years to make a difference you're pointing out eat to start now. So why not have a goal now. Why not show us what this government that you have now is going to do. Within the next five years why why defer until some future governments and having passed that mandate onto Who who's ever the government in twenty twenty-five what we're certainly passing on. There are different initiatives that have different time frames in terms of emissions reductions. Some of them are twenty. Twenty five if you look at the methane regulations for example or targets for zero emission vehicle deployment. Those are twenty twenty five but the focus of the plan as is the case for every country in this world is on twenty thirty and making the steps towards that. And that's exactly what we're doing. And what about the plan to plant two billion trees by twenty thirty. Are you on track to do that. Well certainly nature vase solutions. That's not just trees but that's wetlands and and looking at cultural soils sequestrating tools are going to be important part of the climate plan that we are bringing forward within the coming weeks midst delayed right that your plan to plant those trees. Well you know as as you know. There was no budget in march because the pandemic hit a week for the budget was supposed to be put into place and you need a budget as a financing tool to be able to do that. But i would say is we provided significant financing to folks who were doing Tree planting during the course of the pandemic help to ensure that took place. We'll leave it there. mr wilkinson. Thank you all right. Thank you very much. Jonathan wilkinson is canada's environment minister. He's an ottawa. Did all watch my cousin. Vinny moving. Just one of my favorite movies. 'cause he comes from brooklyn and when the nice lady who said she saw and then he says to a how many fingers to what and she says three plus she was too far away to see only to. These people were further away. Then my cousin vinny was from the witness that was donald trump's personal lawyer rudy. Giuliani speaking at a press conference today as usual. He spouted a lot of nonsensical claims about the us election being rigged as not usual. He quoted from the film my cousin vinny and sweated so profusely. That hair dye dripped down. As face been described as unhinged absurd and cringe inducing but lacked the genus. Qua of mr giuliani's press conference twelve days ago at a landscaping business between a sex shop. And crematorium you remember four seasons total landscaping in philadelphia the inexplicable location where the president's lawyer spoke on november seventh in the midst of which the networks called the election for joe biden which prompted this response from mr giuliani with a call by all than. Oh my goodness all the networks all the networks. We have to about the law judges. Don't count all the networks. All the networks networks thought biden was going to win by ten percent j. What happened in come on. Don't be don't be ridiculous networks. Don't get to decide elections. Cohorts do no one knows why for seasons. Total landscaping was chosen for that press conference but it was a now. It will go down in history as we go to air about. Four thousand people have signed a petition asking that four seasons total landscaping be added to the national register of historic places. It is still history. Even if it is dumb one signatory commented another added. My grandchildren need to know. I'm not lying when i say this happened. And several people wrote succinctly funny well probably not to the owners of four seasons total landscaping. They just wanna shoveling snow and cut your grass. But i guess they're hoping people will stop by for a photo in their historic lows and keep coming back for more. You've been listening to the as it happens.
