"Yes you are. Yes, you are. Send us a picture show. I don't mean to disturb the peace here, but I appreciate you accepting the offer to call into the show while you're getting are you getting a Mani pedi or just a petty right now? And this is like a square of the moment then you just plan to select two hours ago. Would you mind taking a photograph and tweeting it to at rich Eisenhower would you mind, would you mind doing that? Would that be a problem? Would that be a problem? Oh my goodness. Okay. It's just a normal routine for you. Do you get a frequent petty during the season, things like that? You get that working? Yeah, you're one of those probably like once a month but sometimes it'll be like 1002 months or something like that. Okay. Very good. Of course, I mean, footwork, that's part of your MO, right? You got to get your footwork going on right here. And cadmium. Well, you are reporting if I'm not mistaken next Tuesday, right? Is that what's going on? Okay, very good. So let's roll into it right here. For you. When did you know that it was possible that Bruce Arians might be out and bowls would be in? When did that actually dawn on you? Shaq. Probably the same time y'all heard a room was about. I'm like, I don't think we need a more room as you see a more attributed a little bit than I want to hurry across. Yeah, this is to be the perfect time then to go be and how and how could both that respect everybody on the team already. So it was a probably made the decision to be able to leave a little easier. So and what does Bowles bring to this equation? Do you think? As being the HC for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Shaq. I think there's going to be a lot of similarities as they see it as they both want to tell you how you tell it to you how it is. Effectively, and I think it's always going to keep bringing our minds that it may be implied as you know, we are also here, of course, we benefit a little bit more. So we get some more points where the business has actually been affecting our instead of letting the player go and having a car you own about the two minutes it's a week when we got it back. So hopefully you get some of those little benefits, but I'm going to be too different from being able to go because they both like them already. Less cursing, less profanity, maybe? You think? Yeah, maybe a little bit less. It's going to be a little bit less. It was fun.

"I'm just saying. Don't give it me the option to recline. I try to show some restraint. I try to show some respect to people with respect. You don't require. I could go back there in the back. The whole way back and being spread that I choose to try to show some human compassion. That's an everyone pee because people only look out for themselves in this world. That's the problem. That's fine. I have to just put a pause in this conversation for two reasons. One, because you guys are wrong. About what? And we've got another guest. Okay? I'm not with. All right, I'm with you. If we don't get to the guest now, it would be akin to not using the recline button when you can. I hate people that reclined in front of me. Too bad. So do I sit in front of them? That's funny though. Back here. First terrestrial radio network back here on the rich eisen show joining us here on the Mercedes Benz van's phone line is one of the best pass rushers in the National Football League of one of the best teams in the National Football League, joining us here from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is Shaq Barrett how you been Shaq? I'm doing fine. I don't know if you've heard the back and forth gear on the program. Prior to you joining, but George kittle, fellow pro bowler of the national football conference, he tweeted out that somebody in an exit row put two bags in the overhead. Do you have a problem with that? Shaq Barrett? Somebody doing that with you on a plane? Not necessarily a problem, but I wouldn't do it. I wouldn't do that for one of the and put one under the sea but if you're an active order, now you get this. You can't, right? I mean, that's a problem. And what about somebody reclining a seat in front of you? Do you have a problem with that, Jack Barrett? Do you have a problem with that? A few years ago, but it's still enough safety to recline and the person behind you could still be a tiny bit comfortable because then on a plane is uncomfortable anyway. Okay. See, this is a reasonable man. 6, two, two 55. I don't believe that he believes that a person reclining into his space is okay. I think Shaq. Shaq, did you hear that from T, my friend TJ Jefferson? You heard that? That's a big dog. But I work around it. By what flying the plane yourself? How do you work around that? Okay, see you work the board. Yeah, it's like, and sometimes you got to rush from the left side. Sometimes you get a rush from the right side. You know what I mean? What do you say? There you go. It's called being versatile. That's how you get big bucks like Shaq Barrett. That's how you do it. Say less. All right, Jack. Where have I found you? Where have I found you right now? I'm getting a pedicure

"Thought of as athletes, he was interviewed by Jake waki. It was featured, he commands eSports pros, and he goes on to talk about how his honest TV show Shaq versus he goes up against different sports stars to see if he could beat them. And mentions like racing or eSports people using their heads, things like that. So in his mind, it has this thing my eSports has a stigma of not being taxing on the body, but he thinks regardless they should be thought of as athletes in the exact same way. I know this is the argument as old as time in the eSports space. The take I want from you guys is the Shaq commenting on this make any difference whatsoever. The shack is checked relevant enough today that this will change the hearts and minds of many people. Well, Shaq Shaq is definitely relevant. I mean, he's on a very popular pre game show for the NBA. So he's still out there. He's also a pitchman on every single EV commercial ever. So I think Shaq is popular. I do think people will see this though and realize he's kind of talking to his own book, right? He owns an eSports team. So it's maybe him just like pitching his own narrative. Having said that, it does still matter better than him saying, oh, well, they're not athletes. But it's not like this is going to be the definitive nail in the coffin. All right, the debate is over, it's all. What Lindsey, how many, how many major athletes like Shaq do you think still believe the opposite? What percentage do you think of huge celebrity athletes like Shaq? Would take the opposite viewpoint here? I really think it's still at least split probably leaning more towards eSports or not. True athletes, but I will say, as always, at the NBA is perfect and that several of the players in the NBA previous past and present have shown a lot of interest in the gaming space. So at least within the basketball community, there's a lot of people who are talking about eSports as a legitimate thing to participate in and that gives me hope that someday the super traditional folks in the whole catch on. In the U.S. it is interesting, right? And he's a guy I think that has such mainstream appeal, his words matter maybe more than someone like, you know, I don't follow basketball, but Shaq's the name I and then I think that that matters because he reaches probably a broader audience and so it's interesting for him to say that. That's great for him to say that. Guys, I want to finish on the article IPs about the ten most played console and PC games of the first quarter of this year. I think you guys had mentioned elden ring as one of them. I will just show you the title of the article, NPD's most played games list of Q one doesn't include elden rank. Oh. And so I don't know why most of what's on that list. The take I want from you guys here is because we'll get to the list in a second. But think I want 32nd thing I want is elden ring was all people were talking about. Almost every streamer I know screamed the game. Do we live in a little bit of an echo chamber where like what we see and what we hear is maybe not the actual reality, right? Like the fact that it elden ring didn't even crack the top ten, is it because we live in a bit of an echo chamber or do you think it's because these hardcore single player games just don't have very wide appeal Lindsey? So part of it is what hardware barbecue said, which is what I was going to say is it just hasn't been out for long enough. But I will say as someone who is friends with a lot of gamers, this was a game that people bought. It's like it reminded me a lot of when epic gives away free games. It's like you have it in your library and you want to know that you can play it, but I didn't know a lot of people who stuck with it beyond the initial I'm learning how to do it and it's really cool and then it kind of fizzled from there and people went back to their old favorites. So I think that that is sort of part of it. I have seen interest taper off pretty quickly. That being said it could be a game that people kind of come back to when they have free time or something like that too. It's like a library game. It sits on a shelf. No, I think people are still interested in it. They want to look at it. Yeah. I mean, I think it's a little bit of both the single player games do tend to have big spikes and then they do go out of favor because people finish them and then maybe they'll come back if there's a DLC or something like that. But to what we were talking about earlier around game pass and kind of the first topic we talked about, I view that as good. A lot of people loved elden ring. They may have played it for a couple of weeks, a couple months a month. And then stop playing it. And that's fine. I think that's good for the industry overall. In terms of the echo chamber thing, there is probably some element of that. I mean, clearly, these content sites like game and the one even GameSpot. It's like they need something to talk about. It can't just be, hey, a lot of people woke up and played FIFA again today. There's nothing super interesting about that. So they tend to like things that are new and different. But it's funny because our elden ring tiktoks. And by the way, for those of you who don't know, all of our meta content, we have a TikTok called metaverse TV. Everyone should go follow it. But like the elven ring videos we put out on our metaverse DB TikTok were like 10 billion views. People were consuming elden ring content even that never mind playing the game. It was surprising to me to see that it wasn't even in the top ten. Considering how well the content is, right? I guess this is the lens I was looking at it from. I'm like, oh my God, people wanted anything else in ring content. And yet, you know, it wasn't in the top ten most played. I will tell you here's what was in the top ten most played. Minecraft, and I love that they put the year. Minecraft GTA Sims, Fortnite among us, animal crossing Call of Duty, Madden, Call of Duty, so I would call them rewards on call to be Vanguard, and NBA, two K 22. The not a single game that came out in 2022 was the most played game in 2022, just to be clear. And only three of the games came out in the year before in 2021..

"And then Jerry buss had to make a decision. And I think near the end too, they had this big blowout meeting that we talk about in the episode, and it was 2000 three season. And Shaw's retired, and he scouting in Oakland. He gets a call from Devin George, says, you better get down here, Shaq's going to kill Colby man. You got to get ladies and gentlemen. Right. We love bisha. But anyway, so what's happened at this point is Phil Jackson was smart. He understood that Shaq was a big guy that took a terrible beating during the course of the season. So he used to tell Shaq, take the summer off. You don't have to I don't even care. You don't have to train, just take the summer off so I can have you healthy for when it matters. Well, here's Kobe in the gym obsessive, right? 16 hours a day or whatever the heck he was doing. And he's like, I don't get that. That isn't right. You're not doing everything you can to help us win. And the truth was, the two of them never hung out together. Never. Outside of the game, they were not buddies. They were not going to clubs together. They were not hanging out together. So I think what happened was, he thought Shaq should have been a better shape, Shaq had some injuries, felt he should have taken care of those during the off season. And Shaq's like, this little kid, he doesn't understand. This is my team. Well, it really wasn't anymore. It was one and one a, or one a and one a. It had gotten to that point. And I think that was difficult for both of them. And then Kobe had all the power. So he finally said, it's me or him. And he had his little flirtation with the Clippers. And Jerry bush, Jerry buss moved, Shaq along, and kept Kobe. So those are two completely to know both of them. They're two completely different people. I mean, be any more different. Could not be any more different. And I think what happens is like, you know, it's time passes with Kobe people for Kobe was a prickly dude. Kobe was a hell of a competitor hell of a player all of that. I wound up being good friends with them, respect the hell out of them. But could be prickly. I have a question for you, Jackie about that. You said when he came in, you know, and all the vets are there, and he wants it now. And we know that's not always how that works, right? And there's that kind of resentment from the older dudes you're going to pay these dues. Did they give you any insight into when it was that that's kind of a collective they say, oh shit. Yeah. It's going to be his. Well, you know what's funny? I think part of the problem was they already knew that Raja. He did that workout for Jerry West, that private workout in englewood high school before he was drafted. And Michael Cooper, who was 40, but still an unbelievable shape, and still a great defensive player. And he's checking that kid, and he's like, oh, shit, I can't stop him, you know? I think the word was already out. You know, I think they all knew he was going to get there. But he wasn't there yet. He took too many shots. He wasn't collaborative. So the talent was always there. It was can he be a good teammate. When's he going to learn how to be a good teammate? And as you know, it took Kobe a long, long time. Just like it took Jordan a really long time. Some would argue Jordan never got there, right? And some would argue probably the same about Kobe. But I thought what was so interesting about this those two guys was if you start at the beginning, you would have said that who's going to be the one that's going to be the mentor down the line to all these young players. I would have put all my money on Shaq because he was so gracious to the older players. He was a great teammate. Everybody loved playing with Shaq. He got along with everybody. And yet, when it was all said and done, when Kobe's career ended, he started the mamba academy, started that academy, started inviting guys like Jamal Murray and Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Really, entering showing him all showing them all his secrets. And then I asked Shaq, it's the dialog, the exchange is in the episode, so Shaq, which young kids have, you know, which young big men have come to you and to help you mentor them. And the answer is none. Zero. That's fascinating. It really is. I wonder, I mean, I'm sorry, but I just wonder out loud as you're saying that. You know, Shaq's had these things with some of these bigs where Kobe didn't really Kobe didn't say anything. About guys that were compared to him really in a negative way. Shaq's always bristled and kind of had that what he did to Dwight in the media kind of. And so I wonder if they don't approach him because that's what kind of he's put out there, you know? Well, he also, as you guys know, is a very highly visible TNT personality that has his own segment that makes fun of people, right? So like if you're turning on the set that you see him like you're like FM, why am I going to go to him? So I think that's all part of it. But I think they're missing out. I think he has a lot to offer, not just how to handle yourself as a basketball player and how to turn left and right and how to operate in the post, but how to market yourself. I mean, think about it. The guy who played I can't remember how long ago Shaq retired, but he's everywhere. Okay, so he's everywhere, just like Charles. Like Charles and Shaq. They've nailed it. And you'd think every young player would be interested in how to market themselves that way..

"Spoke to him. So yeah, I know how hard that is. So her latest episode. Detailing the relationship between Kobe and Shaq throughout their run with the Lakers and also how they've been after they've both retired and things like that. I wanted to ask you Jackie, what was the biggest thing you learned during that during the reporting of the piece and the reporting of this episode that you probably didn't know about these two? Well, it's funny because so when Kobe was young and I covered those Lake or teams, you know, he just was really trying hard to fit in. He's 18 years old. It's not really even driving yet. It's not old enough to order a drink. You can't rent a car. But he thinks he's all that because he's Kobe, right? He believes in himself. And he's trying to impress upon this older team that's got Shaq on it that eventually has Brian Shaw and Rick Fox and we can name all the guys on it. But he doesn't care. He's going to be Kobe and he's going to do things his way. And of course, it was a pretty tough comedown for him because they're having none of it. None of it at all. And so the story we open with in this particular episode is Shaq used to rap on the bus, chef had a platinum rap album. Shaq diesel. So he would try to get everybody to freestyle on the bus and Colby would kind of sit there and watch and so then he goes home and he starts practicing because he like he's only going to do it if he's going to be great at it, right? Because that's Kobe. So the next time on the bus, he starts doing his rap except for its rhymes perfectly and it's perfect rhythm and they're all like, yeah, no, bro shenanigans. And he's going, no, it's off the door when they're all like, yeah, no, you're not. So I think people forget because Kobe was one of the greatest of all time. It became this larger than life. Figure both in sports, but just culturally, I think we all forget in the beginning, it was really hard for Kobe. Go back and look at his stats as a rookie. They're not that, I mean, do you realize he started for the west all star team before he started for the Lakers? Select the fans voted him in, but the coaches didn't even think he was worthy of starting. So when I look back on that whole dynamic, I think we forget sometimes how far Kobe had to go. And he and Shaq collided later. But remember, when he has those four air balls in the playoffs, it's shack that's rapid his arms around him and saying, hey, don't worry, someday, you know, they're laughing at you now, but someday we'll be laughing at them because we're going to do this together. Yeah, that's really interesting. And I want to take it back just because I didn't get to talk to Jackie last time. I was listening to the pod and the doctor J episode. I was a first grader when they won that championship living in Chester PA. So it was just fantastic and kind of the backstory there. I want to ask you, though, Jackie, like on that, how hard is it to get guys? You've done this a long time. We get on here pre pod. And I'm going to tell a lot of stories. Then once the pod starts, I'll tell a lot, but not as many. And then sure. In another arena, I might not tell any. How hard is it? How forthright? How easy is it or difficult? Is it to get stuff out of these guys when you're doing this? Well, I think I do have the benefit of hindsight with some of them. So my experience has been when you're in it with athletes. And sometimes you have to say and write things that they don't like. That's hard, right? That's always hard. Nobody likes that. And sometimes it puts a little strain on the relationship. But what happens is over time, and I've been doing this over 40 years over time, then they have a chance to sit back and say, was she fair? Did I like her? Was she good at what she did? And so, you know, you mentioned Michael Logan. I think Michael just had time to sit back and I mean, Michael and I had our moments during his career. We were both young. I mean, I was really young when I was covering Michael Jordan. I was in my 20s, you know? So maybe in 30s. But anyway, I think then they have a chance to say, yeah, you know what? In retrospect, I kind of like where she went with it. I didn't always agree with her, but yeah, I trusted her. And so for the older guys, for me, it's always, you make the call, and you say, um, I hope they'll call me back. Sometimes they don't, you know? And you say, okay, well, those guys decided either. I'm not interested or yeah, maybe she wasn't my cup of tea. So thankfully, doctor Jay someone that I really didn't cover closely because by the time he retired, I was still pretty young. It really wasn't covering the NBA regularly. So I've only gotten to know Julius in his post life through Hall of Fame events, which I often go to. So I was really thrilled that he called back because I think he's probably the most underrated one of the most underrated superstars of all time. Because of the way he mentored young people and because of how he revolutionized the game, the way he played the game..
"shaq" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"Have put themselves in the position where they can convince themselves to take a guard at 21 over crystal lava and I'm going to lose my freaking mind, right? Because they can take a guard on day two. They can put James farron's in a guard for all eye care. They will be better off. I know everybody wants to sit here and say that, oh, protection matters, all these things matter. The Patriots will figure it out in terms of protecting Mac Jones. I truly believe that. And we'll get to this next shoe to drop here in a second. There is a next shoe to drop. They're freeing up cats. Yeah. Do something, okay? And Andrew calendar, the Herald who broke the news that the Patriots were trading Shaq mason, tweeted out a little bit after he broke that news that the Patriots have also kicked around the idea of trading for cowboys right tackle layout Collins. Who is one of the best right tackles in football and is an absolute stud. He's a really good football player. The cowboys have cap issues as well. They're trying to get out of his contract. So there is, I think the best case scenario here for the offensive line now, I think the other issue that could potentially drop is as I tweeted out earlier, the Patriots are still very active in the wide receiver market. Basically the entire wide receiver market is waiting for Alan Robinson to make a decision. And it is. It is a little bit peculiar that the Patriots all of a sudden just traded their starting guard to free up 6 and a half $1 million in cap space when they're linked to all these wide receivers and free agencies. So maybe something could happen there. But let's start with Collins because that's the one solidified report that we have in terms of a name. And again, one of the best right tackles in football, somebody that the cowboys are looking to move on from or potentially release. So I don't think that you're going to have to trade a premium pick to get layout Collins. If the offensive line next year is win at tackle a guard from the draft, Andrews on wenu on the interior and then Lyle Collins at right tackle. That is a line that I can get behind. I think the Patriots would have a very good to above average offensive line with that group and would mitigate this thing a little bit of Shaq mason being dealt here. The return on Shaq mason is not good no matter which way you slice it, but if they can get layout Collins for a day three pick from the cowboys, then it obviously makes things feel a little bit better. I guess, and then that does because he's under contract multiple years, right?.

"And on patriots press pass. I'm Evan Lazar, joined as always by Alex barth and we already have a lot of people angry in the comments. We already have a lot of people going crazy about the breaking news of patriots within the last hour trading starting right guard Shaq mason to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 2022 5th round draft choice. It frees up a little bit over $6 million in salary cap space for the Patriots and at this point it's getting harder and harder to justify some of these moves to explain some of these moves to all of you. And I think most importantly, the Patriots are taking on water here, right? I mean, they already came into this off season with quite a few holes to plug. Now you look at it and you see JC Jackson's gone. They have multiple spots to fill on the offensive line. We went into this off season thinking there was maybe one hole to fill on the offensive line and potentially a guard spot or a tackle spot depending on how they felt about Michael on wenu and where his future held. They let Ted Keras get away. They still have no idea there is a right tackle situation going on that they haven't figured out yet. And as much as I want to sit here and be patient and say there's still another shoe to drop because you don't free up tap space like this for no reason. Clearly they're freeing up the space for mason to go and do something with it. But I don't know I'm having a difficult time even me who is mister optimism when it comes to the Patriots most of the time. This is the positive show. Most of the time when it comes to the Patriots, it is difficult to continue to explain away not only getting rid of these players and letting these players move on, but also justifying the return that they're getting for a lot of these players is difficult to stomach as well. Yeah, look, the idea of trading Shaq mason in general, you know, isn't horrible. It would have been a lot easier to swallow if they kept Ted Keras, but that they obviously didn't. But I look at it, they made a comparable trade with the same team in Logan mankins. Now here's the difference. Logan mankins was 32, right 32. Let me make sure I have that right. Logan mankins was 32. He might have been, no, he has 32. Logan makes was 32, and he wanted a new deal. He was holding out. Shaq mason's 29 under contract for two more years. They got a fourth round pick and a contributing caliber player when they traded Logan magnets. They got a fourth round pick and they got Tim Wright. They got a 5th round pick, full stop for.

Pelosi Urges Olympic Athletes Against Angering the Chinese Government
"Nancy Pelosi has some comments here about the Olympics. Now, I don't defend Nancy Pelosi. But I think that it's actually a little bit unfair to attack her for what she said here. Minorly unfair. I think some of the criticisms towards Pelosi here have not been totally wise and I'm gonna tell you why. Okay, so Nancy Pelosi tells U.S. athletes not to speak out against the Chinese communist regime, lest they risk incurring the anger of the Chinese government. Now, she's being called a shill in the pup of the Chinese Communist Party. That's right, but I'll be very honest with you. If I was sending athletes to China, I'd be telling them the exact same thing. Unless you want them to end up as hostages like LaMelo Ball was. You gotta tell them what they're getting in for. I'm not a fan of trying. I think China is an existential enemy. So play cut 79. I would say to athletes, you're there to compete, do not risk, incurring the anger of the Chinese government, because they are ruthless. I know there is a temptation on the part of some to speak out while they are there. I respect that, but I also worry about what the Chinese government might do to their reputations to them families. Now, here's the way it should be done. Okay? First of all, why Pelosi's commenting on this? I don't get that. Is Biden should say, listen. I have given every athlete from America a green light to speak as you choose China, you lay a hand on them, you got a problem. 200% tariffs. China's now a free speech zone. Welcome to the party. That has to come from the president, not from Pelosi, I'm saying if I was just like a House of Representatives and I were like Pelosi, she's actually not wrong. That's not the point. The point is that Trump or Biden whoever was president should say, okay, we're going to go compete in your COVID zero games, you lay a hand on an American, you are not getting a product into America for a year. It's that simple. Will Rockwell rec your economy.

The Sky Is Falling for Netflix
"Last week, Netflix, which is one of the top purveyors of nonsense in our country of just awful content for children and grandchildren, and by the way, no parent should allow their child to have a Netflix account. It is total propaganda. It's a separate issue for another time. Netflix was trading just near $600 a share. At the beginning of the year. And now they're at $408 a share. They've actually rallied from where they were, which was a total collapse of about $359 a share. Their 7 week high was a market capitalization of about $300 billion and they're now at about a $181 billion company. Netflix is spending $17 billion on content alone this year, $17 billion just on content. Most of which is BLM alphabet mafia complete and total nonsense. So what's happening is you're starting to see a correction, but not just a market correction. I think you're starting to see a civilizational correction. I think you're starting to see across the board people disengage from these tech companies, push back against what we call the wok industrial complex, and it's starting to reflect in media ratings, starting to reflect in stock prices, it's starting to reflect in public approval ratings. It's starting to reflect in so many different

"Of jaanus. We have a lot to talk about what it when it comes to the greek freak because he is just one win away from winning his first. Nba finals but the two time. Mvp still hasn't gotten total respect around the league from his peers. Just last year james harden. Instead of the honest. I wish i could just run and be seventeen. And just don't like that takes no skill at all. I had to actually learn how to play basketball and how to have skill. you know. i'll take that any day. Well chris paul just last week said of his finals opponent quote he comes down there. He dunks his dunks. You don't more than he shoots a layup. I don't know about this bullshit and has earned more respect during these finals for me. I don't respect him anymore. Any less than i did going into the final. Skip for me for a guy that everybody says that he can't do and he doesn't. I think the biggest thing is to make a long story short skip. He can't shoot the ball kevin durant. He's not flashy with handling the ball. Like daimler steph curry. He shoot the then. I saw back shoes. Like james harden. He's not as accomplished or if charismatic is lebron james football. A lot of guys can't can't can't can't he's a two time league. Mvp he's a defensive player of the year and he's on the cusp of winning title and being finals. Mvp that's a hell of a carpenter for a guy that got a lot of kids.
AJ Benza: Fame is a Bitch
Why 'The Inside Story' Is so Great
"There's a series I've been watching. It's played before. It's called the inside story. It's about inside the NBA that great series with Shaquille O'Neal, Kenny the jet Smith and Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson. Great show, it's the best sports panel show of all time. And it's now it's in the broadcasting and television Hall of Fame because it's just so perfect. They were perfect without Shaq and they added Shaq they're in better now. It's a dynasty and it makes me laugh every fucking week. It's on. It's like that largely because executives didn't fuck with the talent. They just let them be who they are because they knew they were good at it.

Yeah, I just I just started the fourth season. I guess they have like 3000 episodes. I just finished. It's a super intense show but it's really, really well done. Violent shows. They really, you know, but you know, she finds it. Oddly wage. Uh, she wants to do handmaid's tale role playing in the bedroom and I can't find a bonnet and red truck and all she can just take, maybe she could just take your eye out. That's where it lost me in the first episode. So, it was like, I got, I know, I gotta get past that because I know it's good. But there's some, there's some parts of it where I'm literally with my hand over my face, cuz some of the, the super violent Gore were. Yeah. They really show something up close. I I can't watch that, but the storytelling is really well done. And it's dead. The acting in the shooting is you know, first race. So that's what I've been watching. How about you, Jen, I've got into that more of East Town on HBO. Have you seen that Kate Winslet? I haven't, but, I mean, it's really good. It's like a super Thriller detective thing. It's, it's set in Philly, and I Gotta Give Kate Winslet credit for nailing a Philly accent like I thought that's one of the most difficult accidents. Leave it up to the British. Girl, the fucking mail it she nailed it, she nailed it, it's really it's but it's a, it's a good show. It's, you know, every Sunday, whatever. Murder what about you Danny?

No, I was not there's not been a banner week for me and watching stuff but Well, well Jeff, I got to say Daddy, the premise of the bit is what have you been watching? And you as the whole You Go-Go? I'm not watching anything. I literally am. I'm spacing anything? I've been watching. It is so fucking old. I did watch something. That I really knew. There's no fucking way. You didn't watch anything off, not letting God dammit, the Mitchells versus the machines on Netflix, it's animated movie. It's basically, if like, say, you know, a family that is not decidedly, not superheroes like a. It's like, if The Incredibles were terrible people with no powers and had to save the world, and that's sort of what is sort of happening with it. It's called The Mitchell and it's generally a family that is not getting along, in fighting is going to go on a road trip. And then there's a robot apocalypse and everybody is captured with them, and they have to save the world and it's such a dead Great. Brilliant idea. It's Lord and Miller and those guys who did like into the spider verse, they do all that funny stuff. Really goddamn funny fucking brilliant movie. What's it called? The Magician's versus the machines? Are they like bad superheroes? Like the boys on Amazon know they're not superheroes. They're just people. Oh, they're just, they're just, they're, they're just people off their own issues. They're weirdos and and, and, you know, so that was mine.

One is three and we were in a band and we don't always have to be together, but when we are, we know it's special a, you know, uh, we play off each other well, and he didn't even want to call it. Bumping mics he yelled at me for months about he said, oh, it's too on-the-nose. I'm like thought he was. He was wrong about that. It took a while, but eventually he learned to trust me and you know, I do most of the producing myself and the bookings when we have gas. The best way to work with Dave is to take the pressure off the the rehearsals. And he doesn't like to do a lot of blocking just to give them a playground. So when we got Andrew jarecki to direct bumping mics for Netflix. Wait, that's what you got to direct it. Oh yeah, Andrew jarecki the jinx jinx. Well, you know, he's a good buddy and four years. I've been Hawking him off. Let's do what you need to do, it'll take years off to add years, to your life, from all this fucking murder and violent. Push it, you do. And he'd always laugh, but he loves Dave and him. And I are very close. Uncle Drew's. So we got, we got the seller, the underground there and 3rd Street to create, essentially a playground where we could be anywhere near the room and still cover it. So I get to walk around and find out who's the crowd and they can stay on stage, smoking, and throwing them out across the room and basically, did a 360 off. You know, how some performers will work. In the round. We were we worked in the room. We worked the whole room Cirque du comedy because it's like, you're making your own rules. There's no rules, D. Like some people think there are but no, you can have two people but like I like creating something new I think it's popular is to his credit because I know how hard that is to get coverage and keep it spontaneous and you're not going out to the crowds. There are those moments where you're finding you out there, but it's coming together seamlessly. I mean between post-production and and the directing, that's you guys. I mean, that's a, that was a Herculean task. I think to make it seem so loose, it's just like, we really. Yeah, I've been watching a lot of that stuff. My sons are real comedy nerd and looking for. So I also knew like, there were people in the audience would never get on stage, but I wanted to work like Bruce Willis, like, with his wife and friends. What about Monica obvious?

You're willing to do that to your face. Imagine what you would need. That was also by the way, was that the Rose Bowl? That you pretty much save the situation know that was the Trump roast. That was the Trump roast where he just died and I heard him the room it was even worse 2011 but Mike The Situation from Jersey Shore. Yeah. I don't know how much you remember about that. That's what I don't remember as much cuz it was I remember home. I have an aversion to Trump so I probably watched it with half an eye, but tell me all that. Remember, I remember they put a ban on your computer down and you weren't allowed. I said, I was yes, I've been home. But what happened was and I was a producer on that show and you know, we wanted to bring in like, you know, relevant fun. Name's not just for the Press, but wage because you want the targets up there to fodder, you thinking, like Trump, like hair jokes, a couple, like, yeah. How, how much can you do? So, let's get the situation. In a Larry King, some other people that we can roast to make fun of. So that and of course, The shows going well but it's not going great. You know, trunks kind of stiff with the laughs, you know, he's enjoying it but he doesn't let people know that he wants to play like home. Yeah villain and the situation goes on and we wrote him a really self-aware funny speech that the writers did and down the Jersey Shore. Mike situation and Snooki and all them. That was all I lost my zoom for a second. Oh are you back home? Yeah. You wrote you wrote. This is the situation like I'm sure you guys I know the work you guys do and you wrote him a great. Yeah. Isn't produced enough TV to know you want em, want to kill both people to bomb. Of course you know how hard it is to book the next year if somebody bombs on So we write this great speech, he's the number one TV star in the whole world right now, him and Snooki, and right before he goes on, he says to Snoop Dogg. I only heard this afterwards from him, but he says to Snoop like I'm nervous like about reading the teleprompter reading, maybe that was off Snips as well. Read where your sunglasses and no one can see you read the teleprompter. Here's another story. I don't think I've told, oh my God, so it's a situation puts his sunglasses off now. There's nothing douche here than wearing sunglasses. Only Snoop is like one of three people in history that can work like yeah. Right. Like off glasses on. They are no longer funny. Right?

"When I was researching, you know, how to perform in a jail, you know, there's a lot of YouTube. For a book to Johnny Cash. Just write like there is there's no book and a lot of it. I didn't learn until I was on the job but at the time, I talked to some prison reform, Advocates and the first thing they did was correct me that when you're there don't say inmates don't say prisoners say people that are locked people that are incarcerated and since you humanize them not only is it better for the world and better for them. But it's funnier to like you don't. Well, just like us and they made them vulnerable and, and, you know, in a way in with, if you can laugh at yourself, you know, one step closer to Freedom, you know, mental Freedom, or physical freedom. And and you know people look at that, that that that show and go. Oh, you were Brave to do that and I go fuc. Yeah, I was, I had a big Jew fro. I had a shave it before I went in there, I didn't want a dog. Like they're fucking lawyer, they do you. Yeah, you know what to look like Nazi propaganda cartoons walking into their, you know, like off-camera. How many how many guns were pointed like, did you feel safe where they're like them are Jenny? There's no freaking guns inside. They had at most like tasers because you put Twenty Yards in a room with five hundred some of them violent inmates. You know we had a right Thirty meeting beforehand and I said well where the violent criminals and the way the room was structured, you know, my stage and then there was there was a balcony off, people were hanging over, it looked real full in there and normally there's only about twenty-five, Thirty, people per dorm, but to do a show, they had to bring enough the whole jail. So I said, well, where the Long Island people they'll be up in the balcony, I suppose. And I said no, they're going to be right in front. I said why I thought they were kidding. I thought that the administrator was kidding and he said no birth. Have to be raining front because the leffers, it's like putting your parents in the front row. My God reason was the way the dorm was built if they caused the problem, they would be the closest to where we were moved by the door. In other words, I could get pulled out quick and they could get pulled out quick if they would have been the back in the rafters by the time, the guards got there, there'd be total Mayhem. You're trying to get them out, they'd have to bring them through hundreds of guys and I still didn't believe it. So that's why I don't watch the show. I walk out. I had I go remembered or is that? I think that just really testing if they were fucking with me or not. And of course, three guys in the first two rows, go, right? The but here, dude, I heard it's on Parallel Club. Now if anybody wants to watch Jeff Ross roasts criminals, we're going to put all these links on, but you definitely have to put watch that it's great. Yeah. You haven't seen that. I yeah, I just, I had so much respect for how long for you actually going to a prison where I feel like most people are like, hey, I did a show in, you know, two nights in Philly, and that was the scariest show..

I watched your special and I'm like, oh God, I was so excited to see if it was like a Johnny Cash moment, you know, you're going in the prison, you're going to watch and then I'm sitting there going, wait, that prison is thirty miles from where I grew up. My hometown Brazos County Georgia County. There is a mall in Lake Jackson, which is the town right there. We would have to drive past that prison and every time my sister and I would be the car of my mom would be going and then you see all the fields that they would have to work cuz it wasn't like a hardened prison. There weren't like hardcore. Oh, there were here's what it was but my mom always would stop word at the sign that said don't pick up hitchhikers and she kind of switched my sister's dog. So tattooed in my head and then there you were performing for them like that's fucking hysterical. You know as this County the interesting in a credit to your old neighborhood there Jenny is we wrote to hundreds of jails and prisons all over the country and Brazos County Jail at the time. Wayne Dicky, what's Jalen ministrator. He's now the sheriff for that County he had the foresight he was president or or or high up in a month. American jail, you know, the the yeah the yeah the correction their organization and he understood even though they you know, it's Texas and they take gallon very seriously. He understood the benefits of me coming in and his only stipulation was that often come right away that he delayed a month so that people he could use that to get good behavior out of his inmate smart to me as a carrot to get good behavior wage. That's amazing actually really smart and so anybody. So, imagine the people who couldn't get into the show and it was in jail, not a prison. So ninety percent of the people in there are probably coming out some day so I have gotten Instagram messages from the Nazis. Going, you know, what's up? Motherfuker like half kidding. Have yep. Areas to come in for me. So I I try not to provoke anybody. And I am a all about forgiveness and Second Chances. So, hopefully wage. If you look at some of the footage of what I'm speed, roasting these yeah these inmates on stage, you can see me trembling and it's not even cuz I'm afraid of them action. I and the moment it's I know what my next joke is horse. You know, it's good to know what's happening and you're like oh worried like they were trembling it to me. Look like a sniper reloading..

He's famous for taking his foot off the gas to a regular seasons when he went back to cleveland. You remember that he was like i don't mean to have the number one seed. I don't need to kill myself during the regular season. that's why he didn't win. Mvp's he undersea deserve to have more last year. Janas was the mvp unwanted convincingly and overwhelmingly. Why bernie 'cause the year before. John is wanted and lashio. Jonah's had better numbers than the year before. And the milwaukee bucks had the best record in the nba. Lebron james was really shocked because he had some false narrative going on that he was the mvp. Come on bernie has some humility. You don't have to do that. Politics will knock it you an. Mvp saying goes true. Greatness needs no self promotion. And we've talked about this probably at least once in every show we've done robin that is lebron is incredibly insecure about his legacy. If he's really the king what is he. Allow these things to get under his skin. He did it last. September when he lost out on the mvp then he says well. What really pisses me off. Allie got sixteen votes out of. That's what really pisses me up. Look if you want to continue to die in this hill lebron. You're going to continue to be seen as petty and al kuzina says the mvp's very political award. Yeah so is the mvp and major league baseball in the nfl.

Wet Notes for 2-28-21
"This is wet notes on scuba shaq radio for sunday february twenty eighth two thousand and twenty one. Well i up today. I'm going to do an update on dry suit talq now ever since i've owned a dry suit i've been using those little pouches of talk to dust my wrist seals and neck seals. And that makes it easier to put on especially if it gets a little humid. Well we used to get these little pouches from magnet who then became gear aid when we could no longer get them from juried. We switched to getting them from diving unlimited international or dui. Recently we ran low on these talca pouches. Wanted to order some more. But do you. I stopped producing those talk pouches. I guess i'm guessing near some concern around. The safety of talk i noticed has been in news over recent years. So donna reached out to peak from dui and he suggested cornstarch to dust are seals. Make sure you do it every time now. That sounds a little strange to me. But it looks like people are using it in place of the talq. We'll give it a try. And i'll let you know how goes cornstarch. It's not just for cooking next up. Is things start opening up and we travel outside the country. We're going to need to get tested for in nineteen before we can come back well. Resorts are out there. And they're starting to accommodate their customers and making it easier to get tested. So for example. I just saw where enroll roett to resorts. The turquoise bay dive resort and the mayan princess beach dive resort are offering onsite cova testing on thursdays and fridays. And then what happens. Is you'll get electronic. Results are available in three hours. And then you'll have a hard copy the next day now you still have to pay for it in a costs about fifty bucks. Then i also check the cocoa view site down there and roett tan and it looks like they are also offering onsite testing but their prices coming in at eighty five dollars so it looks like if you're going to travel to row attend you'll find it easier to get tested for corona virus and get back home as long as you test negative but i think more and more of these dive operators out there are going to provide that cova testing or options for people so that you can go travel and then make it easier for you to get back home. Also last i think a couple of weeks ago. The president of the united states signed executive order. One three nine eight and with that executive order it mandated. That masks are to be worn on all public maritime vessels including ferries. What does that mean for dive boats. Well deana did. Some research and found out that this mandate includes commercial vessels used for dive charters and dive related activities. You'll need to be masked up upon boarding disembarking and the duration of travel. Obviously this can only apply to us. Operators i think this makes sense and i'm sure common sense will prevail given our unique circumstances when we go diving way back in the beginning of two thousand twenty i did a segment on dive travel insurance then in mid two thousand and twenty. I noticed the divers alert network. Dan their travel insurance was not available on their website is back now. However there was a short article on dive newswire that indicated that there are qualified cove in nineteen related cancellation and interruptions covered. There's a lot of detail on their website. You can read through. Essentially they cover prepaid travel arrangements. If you your host at your destination you traveling companion or family member test positive for covid. Nineteen there's also levels of coverage while traveling but you need to do your research. The good news however is that the dan travel insurance is back and it looks like they are helping to try and address the corona virus issues. It's always a good day when i go out to the mailbox and that the latest issue of the journal of diving history has arrived. That happened earlier this week. The cover of the first quarter two thousand twenty one magazine features to five women who made up the team of tech tight to mission six dash fifty. Which was america's first off female saturation team. The five women included peggy lucas. An hurley hotline renata lynch true elena schmidt and sylvia earle the journal of diving history. Formerly historical. diver magazine is the official magazine of the historical diving society. Usa and is part of your membership. I can't wait to dive into all the articles i saw. The other day that there's been a an oil spill off the coast of israel and lebanon and it's impacting over one hundred miles of coastline. Now what's a little disconcerting about this is that they don't know where this is coming from this washing up on the beaches. It's the seems like there's some sort of gag order on the release of information. I'm just not sure why there was. Also a thin whale washed up on the beach apparently with oil in its loans. They say this is undoing. Much of the progress made over the last thirty years. Let's hope they figure out where this is coming from or where it came from. And if they're able to minimize the impacts and finally here's some really big news in the scuba industry especially related to scuba tanks. Luxembourg is getting out of the aluminum tank business on february twenty third. Luxor held their fourth quarter and full year. Two thousand and twenty analysts call and that's where they announced their divestiture of their aluminum product lines now. The rationale according to their press release is that they wanted to focus on high performance magnesium alloys zirconium catalysts and high pressure composite cylinders. Guess to profit margin. Just wasn't there on the aluminum tanks. They plan on selling those two aluminum forming operations in the united states and one in the in the uk. But we don't know who they're going to sell it to just yet more to come on. This is it as it. Unfolds now luxembourg. They produced a lot of tanks. And there's a lot of them out there and we're going to see what that does to the supply chain as we move forward. Well that's it for wet notes for february twenty eighth two thousand and twenty one here on scuba shock radio

Is Saka Arsenal’s best player?
"Committee espn fc. Shock his lops fashion. Salazar with you in studio shock. I don't know if you saw yesterday's show. We had a heated discussion over whether the of religion have been reduced to ten men against round madrid in the champions league. We will keep that debate going a little bit later today. Show some different faces to mix it up steve nicol. We'll be by for that joining us now. Though stuart robson julian laurent don hutchison. It is thursday which most importantly mean shaq is power rankings. Most importantly means europa. League will start in greece for arsenal. Beat benfica come from behind in this one. They went three to two advanced. Four three on aggregate a bombing with a couple of goals. Kieran tierney As well jill's. I'll start with you. Just how big was this for arson to advance the round of sixteen in europa league the result of course and qualifying but also the fact that they came from behind. He's he's been very very rare season. I think he was only the second time where they went behind and then ended up winning again we against southampton in the league. The game saint. Mary's but apart from that every time they were behind every time they considered. I couldn't come back and win it so to do that logically would be huge tonight. Plus also the quantification the momentum before the game leicester on sunday and also of course the two goes for obama. Young and the to assists for psychiatry. And i think we need to find you. Were to qualify an amazing player. Bouquets in one thousand nine dong cossack is he. I think he's that best plass sevi- mono people say about me on gets the goals and they rely on. His goal is true. But i think when i watch young suck apply. I think he's got a lot look at his temperament. Look at the way he plays the game. You can tell. Light loves playing football. He's got smile on his face. He's a choose infectious at the training ground when he's playing but talent wise he's got a wonderful less or you can goes pass. Players phone can go either way. Turn the pace again. He works back. He's got a lot really. I mean he must be a manager's dream robbo arsenals best player. he's right up. Two games in the corrected goes for obama yang and that was the difference between the two sides been fieger. I thought place nice football today. But they had no cutting edge going forward whereas cutting edge liquid trying to break off sidelines. Saka was coming in it and those little round the corner obama gang trying to running behind whereas been fake. If all that good fly times just had no cutting edge shocker arsenal just getting it down today just but last questions about about soccer. Yes he in my mind. He is arsenal's best and most important and ask those third goal goal. That takes them to the next round sums it up one more the defender a couple of crossovers defended doesn't know whether he's going to go. Righto left come back onto onto left and picks a fight bullets. Who just onsides 'cause on maybe man because of his two goals headlines but but for me also is a vote soccer and so much of their good plea comes from from his unpredictability from just clever. He is on the ball and for me without question. That teams suffers most without without saka more than anybody else other

"I started our tell them. It's me god. Hey y'all this is lisa and his car and this is pop fashion. Lisa how are you. I'm i'm on the edge of my year car. I ready to fall off a cliff. Twenty twenty clip into an abyss. That's probably secretly a post office. That is a great mental image to start off the show. I appreciate that this is about to fall into a endless pit of male. Excellent corley wraps mail. Yeah that's my entry to. That's what i have to contribute today at. Look into the post office like every other day for the past week. Why did i want so badly to wrap the gifts that i ordered online and then mail them to my family. I see the post office is where i go to lose faith in humanity. I know at such a mailing quagmire right now to. It's harsh out there. They're talking like it's historic level problems with shipping right now so everybody just hang on. Santa will get there when he gets there right. It'll get there but like also if you're y'all bends the post office you're done but just i just want you all to like think of me. Finally when you mentally envision me waiting in line at the post office and the woman behind me. Just talk to me. No and tells me that. Her muscle relaxer made her constipated. This this really truly happens like two days before we're recording. And i was like fuck my line. Wow wow wow lisa why these people engaging in so many reindeer games on my car and gets on the phone today. She's like these reindeer games. Call it everything from now until the end of the season man. My buddy better stop at those reindeer games. You can send that right through january. That's a that's a it's seasonal because it's winter you know reindeer don't just disappear on december twenty six. I ended that. Yes right i mean. They aren't mythical they actually. They're real with that in mind. Should we i mean. Let's talk about some reindeer game right here. So we're going to start with the sing. y'all wanna talk about. Let's on our instagram here. We go anna winter at legit wrote my notes. Anna wintour t. s anna wintour s. She's been editor in chief of us. Vogue for the jillian years like honestly since nineteen eighty eight. That's older than a lot of you. And since two thousand fourteen she's been conde nast. Us artistic director and now she's got a new promotion. All of a sudden conde nast was named her. Its first ever global chief content officer which means that she will oversee all five vogue editions worldwide and all of conde nast brands so that includes chiku new yorker vanity fair bunches of others. It is all an effort to unify u s global segments of the publishing house of conde nast but like anna wintour has not had the easiest year. Cutting ask first of all. He's laying off people. So which is not a good look for the company right and then you're going to promote this woman who like basically runs the media world and whole bunch of black and brown folks. Staffers came out this summer and said that when toward didn't take them seriously over the years that she's been editor she brought to do better but the question in my mind is just. Do we need to just keep giving anna and tour promotions. She still going to be out. Yeah so she's going to oversee all twenty-five vocations worldwide including the us one that she's already editor us and olive conde nast brands like being the. Let's backup. I would like to call this segment the wind tour of my discontent. They give all day to say that to me. No i haven't. But when i start thinking about those reindeer games led me here. We go down this road She's gonna stay to editor vogue. She's doing all this other stuff and goodness knows when you have one job you want seventeen other jobs. One of my guys are hilarious when we put this up on instagram. Because i put up without terry and then you guys just ran with it. We have the best listeners. You guys are so funny so insightful. And so so laser sharp. Just cutting like y'all are are cruel and i like it our listeners. Lauren dropped in. The comments are instagram post. I like how you just dropped. That turned here. That was exactly the one. I thought you were gonna say. Yeah which first of all you know who i am because i just wanted to present without commentary and see what happened I am struggling with understanding. The torah really did have a place in fashion history. That was very important. Juxtaposed with it's time to go. I look back. And i wanted to kind of like look through some dates and i want to remind everybody that this magazine has been around since eighteen ninety two it had its first black person to photograph the vote cover and twenty eighteen twenty eighteen. That is shameful. She cannot say but she's vowing to do better and then nothing changes. I just like i. I can't i'm wrestling with the idea that like. She harnesses power when she wants to. And then this summer when she had an apology. Not i've just basically like not including black and brown people.

The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola
"At the beginning of an epidemic, it's essential to discover the source of the disease. For scientists who do that work, it's extremely challenging and without risk to their own health. But the scientists who played an essential role in discovering bulla way back in nineteen, seventy six doesn't always get the credit he deserves in today's episode. We explore the history of a bowl and the consequences of scientific exploitation. It's part of our week of episodes here on the show celebrating and recognizing the contributions of black scientists enjoy. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Safai here with none other than NPR East Africa correspondent Ater, Peralta Hey there ater. Hey, Mattie, thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled. But I want to open with a quick question. Who discovered Ebola and do not Google it. First of all. How dare you asked me a question? I should definitely know the answer to, and don't and yeah I already, Google Bet. Came up was. A Belgian microbiologist, but I think you're about to tell me. There's more to this there. Absolutely, there always is right so. Cheated. What you probably saw is a bunch of white westerners like. Dr John Jack. Yembeh does not yeah. He was not one of the people that came up. Yes, so, he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo, but back in nineteen, seventy six, we embed. First doctor to. COLLECT ANY BOLA sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote, a lot of the history of people. Has Been Written? Without your name. Yes but. You know this Yes it. Did Not quite. Today on the show correcting the record on a Bola, the story of Dr, John Jack Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing it's. To some in the medical community, it's a controversial move. Okay Ater, so we're talking about a Congolese Dr John, Shaq. And his role in discovering a bola. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa. He said we should start in. Hundred seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD microbiology at the Riga Institute in Belgium, and he could have stayed in Europe, but he decided to come back to Congo, but when I arrive via. The condition of work were not I had no lab have no. Mice for experimentation, so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah, it's tough to do lab work without a lab, you know. Without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen seventy-six. was sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak. it's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola, but no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever, and he goes to this local hospital, and he says he finds it completely empty. Why was nobody there? Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and people had died there. But in the morning when they heard Giambi was sent from the capital, the thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital, and we started seeing patients. So so, what's he seeing? When the patients come in, he was seeing. People who were very weak fever? They had headaches I started to to make the physical time. But at that time will have no gloves. And, of course he had to draw blood, but when I removed. They're the sit inch. Both continue to spread out. What I am to see these phenomenal. And also my fingers or with a bow. Wow. Yeah, so he says he he would wash his hands a lot, but really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah, definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's no gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on, and he was able to not get it in at this point. We MP he was startled. But then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village, also got sick with fever. All the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point me MBA was like. Oh, it's probably not those things. Yeah! I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different, so he. He convinced one none took back to Kinshasa with him. So what happens next? She died at a hospital a couple of days later, but he took blood samples, and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end that was Peter Piot. Who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium, the guy who turned up from Google search. Yeah. That's right, and so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit. The CDC in the US gets involved and the realize. This is a new virus that caused hemorragic. Call it Ebola. They name it after a river by the village where it was discovered. So, what you saw out in the field, the blood samples guide all of this plays a crucial role in the history of right. It was huge, but it's PR who gets the bulk of the credit for discovering all up and you can tell this bothers John Jock membe. If you don't recognize the work done in the field, I, it is not correct. it is a team. You know it is a team. Pr Actually wrote a memoir no time to lose and he does mention. But just in passing as a bright scientist, whose constantly pestering him for more resources. Has talked about this well. Peter Pyatt, facetime video, so I got on the phone. He's now the director of the prestigious London, School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and I asked him if he felt at all responsible for writing. Out of his history of Ebola I think that's a comment, but my book less not an attempt to write than that's history of Boll and sold more. My personal experience is more biographies that sense. Was this kind of like an awkward conversation to have ater. Yeah I mean especially because he's Belgian and Belgium was the colonial power in Congo. Ultimately, he looks at it with a little bit of distant. That at the time African scientists they were simply excluded and white scientists parachuted in they took samples, wrote papers that were published in the West and they took all the credit he so he actually said he did. In that actually surprised me and I think. Part of the reason. I feel that he so comfortable. Talking about this is because he's in an academic setting. I think in universities across the world. Students are talking about privilege, so he seems like he is very comfortable having this conversation right now. I mean there's there's something very weird kind of about that coming from him right as a person who has admitted to taking part in exploitative science, absolutely and one of the good things is that he says that things are changing. We mbappe for example has received several international awards just recently for pioneering. The first effective treatment for Ebola reflects our stinky you. Say the politicians in global health in science, General. So okay. I want to ask you about the treatment in a minute, but to put it very bluntly. Have there actually been any concrete steps to try to change this power dynamic in the global health field? Because this is certainly not one of you know two stories. This is one of many many stories. There is I mean look. NBA has made a decision that many thought unthinkable leaving just a few years ago, he decided that all of the blood samples collected during this most recent Ebola. Epidemic will stay in Congo, so if anyone wants to study this outbreak, they will have to come to his institute. I bet that has ruffled some feathers though. I have I've heard from some American scientists. Who have privately expressed frustrations in the are really the ones who have led the way in studying Ebola, but peanut understands that decision when you think about how African scientists have been historically treated, and he says that Western scientists should just get over it. We have to wake up key things one. The world is changing too much endless Nah it's so weird to hear him say a matter of fairness, ater matter of fairness. Okay, so before we move on, tell me about the treatment that Mugabe worked on. So this is the thing that makes him smile right. We embiid calls it the most important achievement of his life, and it goes back to one thousand, nine, hundred, five during another equal outbreak in Congo. Eighty one percent of people infected with Ebola in this village were dying, and he wondered if antibodies developed bipolar survivors could be siphoned from their blood and used to treat new cases, so he gave sick patients transfusions of blood from a bowl of survivors. Too He injected Ebola patients with the blood of survivors. It vision. And seven survive, he says the medical establishment brought him off because he didn't have a control group. That's what they told him. But if this idea was accepted by scientists. We see a lot of life. Okay I mean to be fair. That is a really small group with no control among some other stuff. But on the other hand, it doesn't mean that he was wrong. You know that it should be totally dismissed, and maybe if more scientists looked into, it collaborated with him, maybe tried to replicate that data in some way, they could have learned something with him right because we now know that he was in fact correct about the antibodies. Yeah, I mean that's right in the context is important because I think what really eat set him. Is that maybe lots and lots of people could have been saved during the West. West Africa outbreak, which happened from two thousand, thirteen to two, thousand sixteen, and look just this year that science became the foundation of what is now proven to be the first effective treatment against the Bulla that is saving seventy percent of the people who are treated with amazing. Is He getting credit for that? At this point, he is yeah, absolutely okay, so how does look back on all of this week? What's what's his view on this is so he's he seventy seven, so he's obviously thinking about his legacy. One of the things that he told me is that he's always dreamed that big science could come out of Congo, and partly because of him, that's more likely happen. He got a commitment from Japan to build a state of the art research facility in Kinshasa and in the lab, just a few feet from his office where we talked US scientists were using advanced machines to sequence DNA of the Bulla samples that have to stay here in Congo Okay so moon bay, doctor and scientists who started in the Congo with no lab has a lab and is soon getting an even better one to do his work. Yeah, exactly, yeah, now I have my share. In. So I have my I have. A good subculture will bring joy. But he also has vice rate with micro biologist without Nice, I, asked myself that every day. And, so you know what he says, his biggest legacy won't be that. He helped to discovery or cure for it. It'll be if another young Congolese. Scientist finds himself with an interesting blood sample. He'll be able to investigate it
