Lou Holtz talks Notre Dame and more
"Lua alluded to you as being a builder and again i go back to the interview which you had here in the studio with us and the obvious question from a person when you They asked you about the rumors you going to. Usc and you said usc is one of the three best jobs. And i said wait a minute. I know notre dame is one of the best. What's the third best job. And you said the one that i get and it turned out to be usc but the university of south carolina. And and i'm just wondering when you reflect back about taking over that program. Why did you take over such a struggling program. And what is it is allowed. Lou holtz everywhere. He has gone to be able to build success. What i foresee a we will not arrive. I think we had three offensive linemen on scholarship is all we had. It did have a quarterback and didn't have a running back to his per se. But you know you grin there you you just you try to fundamental you. Try to do the things that we talked about. Just you know. Build build the football team. And i have gone to six different situations in college and never inherited a winner and went to bow game no later in the second year with matter of fact after going on eleven we finished seventeenth a country next year and beat ohio state in a bowl game following here i think we finished loveth in the country. Beat state again on january one. But it's not because guy it's Coach it's all about the people. If team i mean it's about coaches and players. All all really tried to play their road and believe that you can do something. We read great fan support in south carolina. We were below eligible this year. We'd basically accepted a bowl bid and then of course after a little probably had with trump said in my last football game we decided not to go to a bowl game. I would've liked to vendor micro in a bowl game and yet at the same time within hayes and i'll have the same legacy Last was in clemson was involved. Refer also that's not a great legacy to have necessarily but it's a good football team. Many people coming back in. Like steve spurrier command. And you know he. He's a guy that likes to win. And i think he can win earlier. I believe that in the bud by heart. I think he's an excellent coach. I think the players will respond well to them. And i think we took a the longest losing program the country and took it to a bowl game and he'll take it from there to the championship level when you talk about coaching today And i think about francs being fired after he won nine games and i think about the expectations that go along ty willingham of course sopa but notre dame in his first year wins his first eight and then what has happened to him recently as well. What are the expectations of football coach at a major program today. Well i've been figured that basically very very impatient but you know they. They want instant success. One instant gratification and want to go the top. That the trina goes to the university of louisville inherits a very very good football team. From coach smith went onto michigan state. Now goes between things that a tremendous job but You know feel air. And he has those great athletes. They have great success. Urban meyer. who. I hired at university of notre dame you know he goes to Utah has instant success and everybody sitting there saying well. Hey he can do it let. Let's go get that guy that can do it here that we can win immediately will You know having code having smith there your quarterback as a pretty good asset to have it set about where somebody also had success. And i am sure they they look at it and say well gee they came in and they were down and all of a sudden they one. That's what we want to do and everybody all the fans wanted to two things who's going to be the new coach and he will be the next quarterback i. It's unbelievable i. i don't care you. You want to become unpopular to hurry. Go for being the second team quarterback to the i team the anything too is if you think about it and i was thinking about notre dame just the other day what should be their expectation level and i know the obvious as well to win championships but if you look at the landscape of football today lou there's a lot of teams that are able to get outstanding athletes that don't have the same requirements to get maybe to get into school There's a lot of schools have reputations of putting players into the pros and what have you so having said all of that. What should be the expectation at notre dame today as far as their season and their teams year in year out when further. Joyce hired may at the university of notre dame. He said. I wanna talk to you about a couple of things. Basically not negotiable. These are not negotiable university. Notre dame we are need understand. This now isn't even before i was ever offered the job at you. Know we we. We will not redshirt. We will not take transfer from junior. College will not take a transfer from another school against need search chain core curriculum classes for years of english. Three years of math through calculus at center players are going to miss practice because of late classes or or or labs or tutors or things along that line. The players are going to live on campus. We are going to have great facilities. You have nothing to do with the discipline but athlete on campus We don't pay a whole lot You're not allowed to president of the university. Notre dame was the rule when say they gave the president rates once that they could give me a raise anyone on all that and he said with the we're expecting to compete for a national championship at least once every three or four years and I didn't find anything wrong with ed. And we did the head it. I think that should be their expectations. Not necessarily this year even next year. But i do think They expect Charlie wise to compete for the national championship. And i think he will. The same things are saying about notre dame they said about whenever procedure went there years ago. They said it. When i was there i remember my first year recruiting at notre dame. My aunt had us fifty eight to sixty year before. I got there in their last football game on national television and You go into a home to recruit a young man that have all these That have all these articles in there. About how Notre dame can't win anymore and the schedules to tough. There's all this. And there's all that. And i just don't believe that i i think you know. The sec schedule's pretty tough When i was at university dame might think at fifty four percent of games ever coach there were against a top twenty five football teams. But that's part of notre dame you play the best you know. We played washington when they're really good. We played tennessee. We played texas We we we played Miami florida played. Florida state You just that's just the way you did it at notre dame and I don't think it's any different now. I might be a little bit down right now but yeah. I think it's going to be fine but lou. Isn't it a little bit different. In the sense. That i used to think of notre dame and you probably going into a home where you know it was. I want this kid. The kid's gonna sign right there. It was like with john wooden at ucla. I mean john recruiting because everybody wanted to come and play for john wooden at ucla during those particular years but now the competition it. It's almost like well. We've got a pro passing program so if you're an outstanding quarterback you're going to go to this score that school i mean isn't the the mystique oh most of notre dame and not to their own detriment or fall but isn't it a little bit perceived differently today might be but i don't think necessarily it should be. I mean on tv every saturday. One time when i said notre dame we had fifty seven players active in the nfl. The next was penn state with thirty nine and third with southern cal with thirty eight But we we had to work hard. Recruit again we. We found uphill struggle. But here's the different. We could go to california and would we went after navigate. It was us usc or ucla. When would end attack between us. Texas tech today and you went into florida as a youth. Florida state miami and florida. You went into nebraska to be between you and the university of nebraska. You could go anywhere in the country and you would have legitimate chance to recruit the best athlete in that state but you would have to use the beat. The home state and you didn't always do that but when they start talking about well. Nfl i want this type of program. Notre dame's not a four year decision. Support here decision. What do you do in your football's over guarantee you're gonna play in the nfl with china education. You'll get what are you gonna learn. And are you going to be better prepared to go in there. You know i was watching Tonight on tv On some sports show where they had the ten major mistake officials made and one of them was grown bettas called tails and the guy said hatch. And i had to laugh because a whole time as notre dame the first thing i said the locker room before the game was we will call tales. We always called. This was a game. But i just think that You're still a forty year decision. Not a four year decision. You talk about the only thing that's going to change it from where you are today to where you'll be five years from now the books you read the people you meet in a dream a dream and the baby. You're gonna meet university in our day and they're going to be the ones that are going to be illness companies and being. Ceo's and they're going to be the leaders that those are the people you're gonna come in contact with and then you get him on campus. Let them talk to your athletes now. The guy that doesn't feel comfortable in that environment isn't gonna get isn't gonna fit well notre dame anyway and now there were always people that didn't want the discipline did want the the challenge. Academically didn't want to have to work that hard on their academics guy that they won't be interested in the university of notre dame necessarily but one thing i used to laugh about was you would read. You would read these top twenty two football players in america. What schools air considered and other day. It'd be listed on about eighteen oven. Maybe seven of them. We were recruiting because we couldn't get in school academically. But they would always put notre dame was one of their schools Florida not because it made them look good so to speak and I think notre dame will get back. I really do because it's a national school a special school. One of the thing that i think is the lou holtz legacy when it comes to football in. It's almost like parenting. In a sense. You mentioned about urban meyer. I think a barry alvarez a host of other coaches you must feel awfully proud of the the legacy of lou holtz from the coaches that went on from underneath year wing onto other programs either as assistance or successful head coaches as well. I've always felt that. I learned this from woody. Hayes have an obligation to prepare your coaches to become head coaches. I'd always explain why we did things and how we did it. the philosophy at center. I think we've made it look simple that everybody would come in and they go. I can do that. I wanna be head coach. But i went down. Visit very alvorada in preparation for the bogue. Gabi speed come down and one time we had about. I don't know maybe a sixty some former graduate assistants were either in major college or professional that had been graduate assistant said many people gone on u. p. care coach for me at the university of arkansas. We we started him out You know monte kiffin coach for him in the defense coordinator tampa bay et cetera. Just you know it's just so many coaches you enjoy it and that's one of the reasons why you wanna talk to me. Now's not because. I prepare them but because of the contribution they made our success but not mind. There's there's their contribution to my success is far greater mike. Entre bution to there's

College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games

The discounts aren't that hefty are they.
Interview With Gunnar Breivik
"And im your host not gotten meaningful. Sport is a series of discussions on the y and how involvement is sport than physical activity can be an important part of a life worth living. If you are interested in the theme you might also want to check out meaningful sport dot com there. You can find podcast. Show notes read a blog and access many resources for further explorations of meaningful sport. This is the third and the final part of our discussion with goon. Who is a professor emeritus. At the norwegian school of sport sciences professor bribes work has been foundational in philosophy of sport and it was a great honor for me to have him in the podcast sharing his thoughts and and his exciting work. I will briefly sum up the previous episodes in case you haven't listened to them already. Part one was an exploration of heidegger philosophy and how it can be applied to our thinking. Round sport goner charities working on technology of the sporting human being which builds upon heidegger philosophy but also extends into novel new directions. That can help us understand how we find ourselves in the sporting world in the second part we discussed heidegger notion of authenticity. An how governor has used the when exploring skydiving. We also discussed existentialist ideas about breakdown and temporarily and how to apply these ideas in sport and today in this third and final part of our discussion. We move away from existentialism and focus on ecological sport which has been one of the key topics of goners. Most recent work concerns of sustainability are among the pressing concerns of our collective human agenda worldwide. But what would ecologically sustainable and ecologically acceptable sport. Look like how much do we need to rethink the way we practice sport or even the fundamental ideas of sport. You know a society. Let's listen to what gunar has to say. I think now it would be really a nice time point to talking time so Let's let's move on a little bit to discuss Some of your reason work. You have written about this already a long time ago. But now you have In in some of your reason work started to connect sports. today's pressing global concerns about sustainability. And an and what is going to happen to our our planet as a whole in terms of the environmental crisis. So you've pointed an inspired philosophy With few exceptions there hasn't been Discussions about what is what would be an ecologically acceptable or sustainable sport. And what would it look like. And so One of the things that you have drawn upon in your own work of exploring this ecological sustainable sport mr norwegian philosopher hardness so Let's let's start explorations of the that topic area and you can. You can tell a little bit more about the arneses work on on deep ecology whether on unnecessity interesting in many ways First of all he will set a leading national philosopher when he discovered so to say the importance of the the new science of ecology which came up in the sixties of the costumes. Famous Night in sixty two Pity tips on how they change the world there Use of the new system theory asks the ecology and on s became interested in that he had another also so to say it in spindle saas philosophy and Which is also looking at the account.

How Tall Is Mount Everest REALLY?
"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall.

Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on.

These Apps Make Black Friday Bargain Hunting a Breeze
"It's black friday and You know things have changed a lot because of the pandemic first of all you know things usually start on black friday maybe a day or two before. Now i mean deals have been going on for like a week already maybe a little longer and the holiday shopping season is just kind of be extended all the way through the end of the holidays mark. I wanted to talk about some cool apps that can help you find deals but let's talk real quick about how the pandemic has changed everything. I mean before a lot of people would go out to the stores. Wait in line. A lot of people would obviously shop online but most people are just going to be sticking to their computers. And it's all about who can refresh faster to get some of these big deals. Forget black friday. It's more like cyber friday and forget just this weekend i would say it started with amazon prime day like month and a half ago or so and leading all the way up to the holidays and even past it so no doubt that retailers. Many of them are also feeling the pinch. Maybe not the big guys like amazon but they wanna sell so they are discounting their tack and other items and consumers us. We want to save this year more than ever trying to stretch your dollar because of what's been going on so there are some deals to be had. It does help if you have an app a website that helps you along the way we know were there devoted solely to helping you find the best deal and we can cover a couple of my favorites. But yeah if you've got a favorite store to shop at or you're open to looking around and you're comfortable with shopping online. You're gonna find some great deals this year. Let's start off by talking about some of the most sought after products this time around and that's going to be new xbox series x or the ps live on their respective launched. As things were selling out. Right away i know game stop. Said they're going to have some units in stock in store a minimum of two of each. But those things are gonna go so fast these are like some of the hardest things that people can try to get this time around. I would say both the ps five and maybe to a slightly lesser extent. The xbox series x are the must have. That's the hot ticket. If you can find one kudos and if you find people are flipping it on ebay and taking advantage of the supply and demand thing and charging you know well over a grand for these solo if you can find one then you're lucky i don't know if it's the pandemic because we're cooped up at home working quarantining here and video games are going to help not just to keep you entertained but also to keep you in touch with your friends and as we all chat in fact you may not know that the new. Ps five controller the dual sense controller. As it's called has a built in microphone now so you don't even have to buy a separate headset. you can actually chat through the controller itself as it has a microphone and a speaker see. These are the hot ones to get. So if you're finding everywheres is sold out as the old adage says the early bird gets the worm if you call your local retailer local walmart or what have you and you keep hounding them and you keep pushing and talking to people. Someone's gonna say eventually. Yeah we're getting. We're getting three more in today at six or whatever so you may have to do it in person know while practicing social distancing or maybe you'll get some luck online if you can find one mark every year. We put out a list of some very helpful apps that could get you through the shopping season. Can you run down. A few of those words please. Yeah couple all of these ones by the way our apps websites and browser extensions though you install it once and they'll keep an eye on where you're shopping and apply coupons and in other deals at the checkout time so one of my favorites is slick deals. This is a community based site that is like the world's largest community of deal hunters like twelve million members. And what happens is someone will post a deal. They found like hey. I found seventy five inch samsung tv for eleven hundred dollars at this retailer and then others vote on that. They do their own homework. And it's kinda like safety in numbers and they vet does deal and it gets voted upon and may be lands on the on the homepage. So this is a great site for whatever you're buying and again that browser extension which works with chrome edge and fire. Fox will also keep a lookout for you so slick deals as greats like a huge bulletin board where people are sharing the deals that they found on a right now and i'm seeing like an apple watch at walmart for eighty dollars off one hundred sixty nine bucks for the series three and it tells you when the deal starts in what website to go to and people can give it a thumbs up and all that another great site is flip l. i. Double p this is more about retail shopping. And this is an app that you have on your phone that gets all of those circulars that you get all those ads that usually paper in your in our house every thursday wrapped up in a big. You know elastic band kind of thing. And it's like instead of doing that and getting newsprint on your hands all digitize in one place it will call out the best deals per store you can of course search for something that you want to buy. You can share those deals. You can apply coupons at hold your loyalty and rewards cards so flip is a great retail to have on your phone and then one more is a raccoon. These be called e bates. This is where you get money back on your purchases. So when you're shopping at a retailer you start at the raccoon website or started the app and then they share back that sort of commission they would get referrals commission. They share some of that back to you. So every three months you can get a pay pal deposit or a check based percentage of what you're shopping and there's over like twenty five hundred retailers that are on board so it's going to vary between stores but they're saying this time of year it could be up to forty percent while you're shopping. That's on the high end.

Twenty four obituary away from the outside. But you're legion for dead outside for dead epoch. whatever he did look like. It wasn't a footballer. He was short about five foot. Five and stocky. He seemed as wide as he was told. If you had to guess which field of athletics he would succeed in. It might be weightlifting or wrestling if you met him. This opinion might well be reinforced in no realm. Did he seem at home. With as or graces diego armando murder donahue was born on october thirtieth nineteen sixty in la news just south of buenos iras. His childhood was spent in the shantytown of via we to on the argentine capital's outskirts. He was spotted early. He was fifteen when he made his premier division debut in nineteen seventy six. He was sixteen the first time he wore the blue and white stripes of argentina in nineteen seventy seven though he was omitted from the argentina side. Which won the world cup at home in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. He became the world's most expensive footballer in one thousand nine hundred eighty two moving to barcelona after starring in that year's world cup in spain. Barcelona knew what they were getting despite aggressive. If not brutal man-marking maradonna was magnificent. But he had his limits against brazil. Argentina's caused lost.

And slunk away in disgrace. Maradona's jekyll and his hide will always be most famously illustrated by the events of june twenty second nineteen ninety-six at estadio azteca in mexico city. It was a world cup quarter-final so the stakes were plenty high enough anyway. But argentina were playing england. It was four years and eight days. Since argentine forces had surrendered to the british army in the falklands agentina. Tina regarded this game as a rematch argentina.

Hawaii Wants to Lure Visitors---but Keep Out Covid-19
"Hawaii is riding out the covid. Nineteen storm but geographic isolation isn't the blessing it may seem by a. hundred algata when hawaii's corona virus infections were rising in late august. Honolulu mayor kirk caldwell visited doctors in the covid. Nineteen ward of the queen's medical center the state's largest hospital. I could see it in their faces and in their eyes caldwell says the concern and fear. They had that by the following week. If things didn't change they were not going to be able to care for people that they were going to have to put them intense outside. It was a crisis that leaders in the fiftieth state hoped they would never face between march and may when a stay at home order was in place. Hawaii was averaging only a couple of new cases every day but as some restrictions were lifted in june resulting in a patchwork of state and local rules. The numbers soon began inching up by late. July hawaii was metaphorically ablaze with the bulk of cases centered on oahu. Home to two thirds of the state's population. The island lost one hundred and nineteen. New cases underlie thirtieth by mid august. It was averaging over two hundred today four days after his hospital. Visit with more than three hundred and fifty people hospitalized for covid nineteen symptoms on his island issued a second lockdown order with the blessing of hawaii governor. David ige our hospital administrators had informed us. If we didn't do something that they would become overwhelmed says he gay three months later. It seems hawaii's response may have worked as a new deadly wave of coronavirus infections sweeps across the us. Hawaii is one of the only states in the country experiencing relative reprieve. It reported one hundred and thirteen new cases on november twenty third according to data from johns hopkins university slightly more than its weekly average of one hundred six daily new cases. Only vermont reported fewer cases that day hawaii the fortieth most populous state has a low case. Count even when adjusted for population as of november twenty third. It has a weekly average of seven cases per one hundred thousand residents the lowest in the country by comparison. The highest per capita figure is belong to north dakota at one sixty and wyoming at one fifty four infection levels in hawaii have stayed relatively steady since mid-september while nearly every other state has experienced an increase it remains to be seen whether a slight uptick in recent days could be the start of a new upward trend however how has a wii so far avoided another major covid nineteen surge. The clearest reason is apparent on any world map geography. It's so obvious yet. It plays such a big role says thomas lee. An assistant professor of epidemiology at the university of hawaii at manoa and co chair of the hawaii pandemic applied modeling workgroup. He also served as the lead outbreak. Modular and forecaster for the hawaii emergency management agency this spring for hawaii. The pacific ocean has helped serve as the world's biggest moat travelers arriving there by plane. Essentially the only means of reaching the state with cruise lines. Shuttered have since march required to self quarantine for two weeks though since mid-october visitors can avoid isolation if they test negative within seventy two hours of arrival while the rules may have kept visitors from seating new infection clusters. They have also devastated. Hawaii's tourism sector which accounts for nearly a quarter of its economic activity. Some hawaiian leaders. Still don't think they're doing enough to prevent infections part of a broader split among hawaiians over whether and how to welcome visitors back during a pandemic derek kawakami mayor of quite county says new infections on his islands are related to the reopening of travel from the continental us. He's proposed a requirement that travelers get tested a second time after arriving. This virus requires layer upon layer of intervention and mitigating measures. Kawakami says we have to be able to respond quickly and boldly because it can spread like wildfire kawais. Recent uptick is tiny in relative terms on november twentieth. It reported six cases. Its second highest one day count so far but kawakami has good reason to be worried koci home to around. Seventy two thousand people has just nine. Icu beds and fourteen ventilators. Isolated and with limited healthcare capacity and uncontrolled. Outbreak could quickly spell disaster. The holy grail is prevention. So that is what we put our blood sweat and tears into here on kobe. Kawakami says we're almost always on the red line. A similar imperative applies across the entire state of one point. Four million people with nowhere to turn of hawaii's healthcare system is overwhelmed leaders. There have little choice but to be proactive. In preventing covid nineteen outbreaks. We are geographically remote and so our healthcare system is really vulnerable says catherine purple an associate professor of health policy and management at the university of hawaii minoa there really is a strong motivating factor to try to keep those numbers under control. Hawaii's isolation then is a double edged sword. Thousands of miles of ocean are a good tool to stop travelers from seating new corona virus clusters but if infection spin out of control anyway. Assistance could be a long time coming. We have been from the very beginning focused on the science and public health recommendations because we are twenty five hundred miles away from any help. Says the governor. We learned a long time ago. That we have to be self reliant and that we have to act as a community epidemiologists say it's difficult to attribute hawaii's relative covid nineteen success to any one factor isolation included for one thing cold weather which is forcing many americans indoors where the virus can spread. More easily is unheard of in most of hawaii. Honolulu's thanksgiving day forecast is eighty two and sunny. Other government measures may also have played a part unused hotel rooms and a wa who have been repurpose to isolate nineteen patients and restrictions on inter island. Travel have prevented. Local spread mask wearing has helped as well on kauai and a who mask. Mandates were instituted in april while an august survey found that ninety. Six percent of hawaiians are masking up. Unlike for many americans. Wearing masks to prevent illness isn't an entirely foreign concept for hawaiians public health experts. Say that's likely due to the states relative proximity to asia where facial coverings tend to be more prevalent. Many hawaii residents. Who commented for this article also cited the state's heritage and cultural values as a reason for high adherence to public health mandates. We have a culture here that comes from the first people's the native hawaiians called ball says the term juliana means responsibility and it does the people here in hawaii still leaders in hawaii have come under pressure over cove nineteen restrictions caldwell says people sometimes drive down his street to yell outside his house either at him or his wife and daughter. Some people certainly have reason to be upset. Travel restrictions have ravaged the state's tourism dependent economy hawaii's overall unemployment rate was more than fourteen percent in october according to the us department of labor the worst in the country for the second month in a row called bo says he understands people's frustrations but needs to prioritize. Public health. people are impacted. Their businesses are impacted. their life dreams are impacted. He says. I get why they're upset. But i also believe that in order to protect health and safety which is always the most important thing that comes first. And i think it's tied directly to the economy to after months of travel restrictions. Guy says the state's pretrial testing program finally bringing in visitors and helping hawaiians get back to work while keeping cova level stable still. Despite hawaii's current low case counts it remains to be seen if the state's leaders can revive tourism based economy while at the same time staving off a devastating rise in cases which would likely put the tourism business back on ice anyway depend on travel. Uk says but everyday day. I get comments from members in our community that continuing to bring visitors into hawaii during this time is really putting our community at risk. It's something that weighs very heavily on myself. And the mayor's every day as we see the virus counts increasing on the mainland.

The Women Who Revolutionized Fashion with Petra Slinkard
"You are here to discuss the peabody essex. Museum latest exhibition the women who revolutionized fashion two hundred and fifty years of design as the title suggests. This is not by any means a small topic. Can you tell us about the exhibit and a little bit about the inspiration behind its creation. Sure absolutely So this exhibition actually is a partnership that we did our we're doing i should say With the consortium and then hand in the netherlands and it is an extension of a show. They put on called them. Vitol's strong women and fashion and their show then travelled to belgium and we are essentially kind of the third venue. But it's. It's an interesting collaboration because it's not an identical repaying of their show so they're installation on which was was beautiful and spanned multiple rooms in multiple galleries and our show is going to be designed a little bit differently And part of reason that we were very excited to partner with consortium is that they're so accommodating on really great partners they allowed us to borrow sixty objects from their election which was huge for us because of course the european collection Phenomenal works that represent into the big european designers for which doesn't have that much representation and but of course being in the united states. We really wanted to draw out of some additional stories that pertain to designers the twentieth century. But also american designers For whom there wasn't as much representation in their show the we've been able to augment With twenty five works from our own collection some of which are recent acquisitions and We borrowed a few pieces from the mfa in boston. We brought to pieces from the chicago history museum and then we're working with To private collectors. So there are a hundred eight mannequins in the show. It's a really big show and it does run the gamut. We say two hundred and fifty years. It's not of course the comprehensive look but it does span that timeframe and so why an exhibition dedicated to i mean. This probably goes without saying what inspired you to do. An exhibition dedicated just to women designers. Well that's a great question It actually takes me back to a time in chicago. Because i was working at the post. Your museum as the custom curators there and of course as a social history museum we were definitely thinking about a twenty twenty s. A hallmark year for the anniversary of the ratification of the nineteenth amendment. And so even then this back in two thousand seventeen By partner just kapoor. And i were already beginning to catacomb the collection and look to see what we might do in honor of women. Because of museum itself was looking to do a year of women based programming and exhibitions. My life changed. Because i. I moved tuesday when massachusetts became the vashon. Tech's curator the peabody essex museum. Is i kind of put that idea dressed. Rest until i was scrolling through instagram. One evening saw me ho. Hey who's curator at the museum post image of stack of books and i noticed all the names on the books. And they were all women designers. She said something pithy like coming soon. And you know a strong women fashion. And so i sent her a direct message and i said hey. Tell me more what is going on. What are you doing when he planning And she told me about the show. And i said oh. That's really interesting and said you'll have you ever worked with the us institution before she said. No we haven't What would you be interested. And she said yes so. I went and saw the expedition. And i came back and i spoke with our colleagues here in just so happened that we had a are scheduled for twenty twenty and We really been thinking at that point about doing anything dedicated to him in and so it all fell into place We were slated to open in may but of course because of covid that did not happen. but again because we have great partners they were very flexible. And now we're opening number twenty first.

"Well got episode number ten of ESPN number. One challenge podcast I feel. I'm joined by Charlie Chunky view. I'm joined by Charlie Beta, Kravitz and Elizabeth Easy Liz Veerman as always guys Hauser Week. I don't know what's. Joining us from Chunky Doug I'm so glad you asked billy. I'm joining you from the cashiers. Area Chamber of Commerce. Big Shout out to Stephanie and Thomas for hosting me I just take a moment to address you. Yes, you listener viewer wherever you are.

You can go to waterfalls. You can go on hikes. There's limitless possibilities in cash North Carolina, and then I want you to come to Bucks Coffee Cafe and I'm going to buy you a frozen lots of bucks. Okay, so that is what I'm asking you to do. I'm done now. Speaking about cashiers bill you Taylor channeling candidates. Did you just go that while I? Use Talking Oh. Yes, think he. Is there anything better than an icy cold milky lots in a lush green surroundings? Typing Furiously typing box. It looks like it's light. Is this an open-ended? Invite like just whatever you want. You just always going to be waiting a bucks to buy people coffee. Just give me a little bit of heads up twitter instagram. I'm Charlie, Huma both places. By frozen lots of bucks, you're GonNa, love it. Okay, that was a weird start to the episode will admit and that kind of takes us into. What was a weird week for the challenge I would say over the weekends. There was controversy on the challenge. It led to de being dismissed from the show then episodes normally ninety minutes long this week. Because of the incidents, it was then brought back to sixty minutes, which leads kind of weird edited. And then there was another version candidate, so there's a lot to talk about in regards to the challenge in this week's episode thing. Yeah, I think we can take all this back to where this began, which was with d making some insensitive comments on twitter I? Don't think we really need to rehash those here. You can search for those in probably pretty easily if you want to. The gist of them was basically that D- made light of the black lives matter movement, and subsequently followed up with additional tweets that kind of showcased, maybe a lack of education and a lack of empathy for the cause and the way those issues of impacted people in the black community in America and I think that. We can also in this podcast that none of us here have lived through the black experience in America. Right and I think that you know in the wake of George Floyd incident that. A lot of what we've heard and tried to do is is you know listen and find ways we can be part of the solution and part of change, and what what you've heard a lot is educate yourself understand the issue better you know, understand ways to. Combat it and I think that you know really what what dis What her tweets kind of showcase was lack of education on the issue and a lack of empathy for the lives that have been impacted by. Not only George Floyd numerous other incidents in America so I think that? It is absolutely within MTV's right to dismiss her from the show and subsequent seasons and I think that I don't have as much of a track record. Watching MTV reality shows is perhaps you know y'all have, and I know that there have been some problematic figures in the past. Maybe that MTV hasn't necessarily dealt with the way they should, but i. do think that this represents. Progress in the right direction of perhaps this is sort of them to finding a zero tolerance policy for these types statements in the future you just you will no longer be on the show, so that at least represents progress. Yeah, absolutely I want to echo everything you said there I think that's. Very poignant and salient and it was. It was good to see MTV, take swift action and sort of duels right in this situation I mean not too long ago not to bring it back to what we saw earlier, this season with Nelson and Kayla. Bear where we said you know. What like a couple of seasons ago that snow, conversation? That would have happened. Just a couple of seasons ago on this show, there was an incident between Camilla and Leroy and most state on the show, and then was back. The next season took a couple of incidents before they kind of had her go away and I don't think they ever really made a firm statement like condemning her, and saying like you know she's done with us forever. Just kind of disappeared so. They're definitely handling things differently than they did in the past and I think that's that's you know Kudos to them for doing that and being swift on it? Yeah, and so I think that the interesting thing then coming off of that is the choice to MTV made in editing. Two different versions of the show won for the American audience and one for the Canadian audience. Where we're essentially the reason that thirty minutes short episode, in America was that he was really not, and despite the large role she played in the episode, and and being in the elimination, winning it so for that I will spend on over to our challenge historian slash episode recap extraordinaire. Mr Kraft's thank you for that wonderful people. Yeah I mean I think you're gonNA. Do this recap a little bit differently because we'll sort of. Oscillate, back, and forth between what they showed on the episode that we watched will be sort of discerning. They show in from the median episode. Thanks to our helpful friends at. Our episode began in the bunker with. A women's Elimination Week and The Red Skull Ass-. Denial Challengers Ninety Mattia Melissa all wanting to go in, and that led us to the delightful exchange of Josh and ninety, sitting in the bunker, Josh just luxuriating in a skincare. Just, moisturizing talk the ninety about how she was plotting to throw herself in that you wanted to win. Tribunal says she would have the opportunity to choose to go in and I'd like to it here for one second before we continue. On, Charlie Hume the Chunky dogs wedding day. I showed up to his suite the morning of his wedding. A good when? She brings moisturizing base masks. Dope on their wedding I feel. You would fit in well with this crew then because last week West was wearing under idea puffing pads this week. Josh's wearing a moisturizing facemask like these people take their skin care very seriously. Once you start skincare. Thank you. Kick back. Sure that was the first masks that had ever use my wedding day room. Yes, it was. It was very. hydrating I guess the word I would use. And you know maybe the bunkers a stressful place. If you can have a little bit of refuge in that small hydrogen, ask Josh you go ahead and do it. We're Josh Pot. I'm in full support of it. Yeah, I'm not here to shame. Josh for wearing a face I'm not GONNA lie. I wore a mask I think it was on the weekend Saturday, or Sunday, how to mask on I like the mass that you rub in, then you have to let it dry, and then you peel off because I feel like it's doing something. I don't like the ones that are either the pre made. Made ones that you just peel off after a fan of those are only going to screw off. I like to peel it off. Feel like something's coming up now Mr crowds has baby soft skin so I can see him doing it Charlie Hume on your wedding day. You also had a beard. So how did that work? How did that if I'm thinking about that now? It was like I. Kind of had to pull up. It did not attached to my face. Well I think that was the headline. I was very hydrated everywhere else, but yeah, you know what that's. That's a good point. Why is it their skin care for men with beards? Face yes. I guess you could just cut the face. So maybe your skincare from him of beards all right, okay? Yeah I think we should be clear. None of us are shaming Josh or West. I also think if you are on camera all day every day. Of course you're GONNA WANNA? Look your best, so not just stress released, but maintenance to be camera ready. We're about us. Do you think that Josh and wes brought those with them? Like in their.

"So tiny. He's amazing. Nice resurgence like ninety six to two thousand rocket everything I remember everyone watching then in kind of food away announcing back again so yet. It's not really back right now. It's struggling right now time I assume it is. It's struggling right now. It's posting the lowest ratings. It has twenty seven years. Rationing. Now back to Martin. show specific questions so questions about how you get to stuff so quickly and I assume that tags like soundbites. are able to pull stuff quickly, so if you to organize okay fine the scenes that question so working with Dan and sue as long as I have I. Kinda know where they're going. As soon as Dan mentioned something for instance, if ludicrous comes up in conversation, irony noticed are looking for the Ludicrous Watch clip if dwayne. Wade comes up in conversation. I already know that sooner or later dance gonNA. Ask For Way Jones but it's actually. We have a huge archive as you can imagine. I have basically two different places that I can play sound from and most of it is just off a utility. That has a huge. We call it the drive that has an archive, a ball of sounds that we ever have and thankfully I. Remember back in the days when it didn't have a search feature, so you would have to organize everything alphabetically and just scroll down like the Matrix and try to find the one specific clip that you're trying to find which. Would take a lot longer, but thankfully they have a search function now so I can just search a keyword and then several dozen options. Come for me, and then I can identify the sound clip and I'm looking for the tricky part is. Make. Sure that we're super organized in terms of archiving and we've caught ourselves before whether it's sometimes Chris, saves something where I save something. I don't really recall. It doesn't really make sense. We constantly have to change what soundbites are called because the functionality of I'm looking for less miles talking about an oil slick. GonNa just says Lsu football coach miles, but doesn't mention anything about oil, so you have to make sure that you're super organized and make sure you put key phrases in the save file that you're looking for because you may not be able to remember the file name, but you can remember some of the notes that that sound hits so that's how we do it. The search function was a game changer for us. So Chris the Pirate S. Russell brand there was a few segments, but him in kind of went away. This ring bell are. Yeah Dan, does a talk to you tomorrow bit and. So here's the deal. Dan Just says talk to you tomorrow, and that's not really how guest booking works. Sometimes. The person can have a bigger star like that that you don't have a direct contact to that. You book through. An intermediary is tougher to get on a daily basis. But that doesn't stop them from San. Talk to you tomorrow, so shout out to Allison Turner and now billy hooves. Really taken more of an active role in the guest booking fairly recently. They have a very difficult job. The inputs guestworkers in a very difficult position on our show. I Guess Allison so is she still helping with the show or is she three more shows? She? She helps with other bookings across ESPN, but yes, she's so actively books for our Shell. I I'm speaking for everyone here but I think people love her I think she is so funny and it was. People were very sad as ear go. She's not into student anymore. I think I would love to see your back someday by I guess I understand. She's kind of a fan favourite. Yes! I loved her on air to she. She was a great, a great on air, character, her and Billy Rolling Sometimes I. Wish we would do that more. But even when she was in studio, she really WanNa. Do it all that much. She is, so she pops up on some mystery crates and some local hours. I heard a recent one. It seems as though she's in a relationship, so that's that's very exciting for her. So the Billy Allison dynamic does live on through the local hours of mystery crates. See here what brings you more stress? Dan's outspokenness or Stugatz is laziness from. peaky leg or that name? Easy Dan's outspokenness. Yeah, I often said that sue. GAZZA's the most honest relationship in my life, because I already assume everything he says is a lie and so i. know exactly what that Dude's angle is and. It's it's true. Serum for me doesn't matter what he says I know. What the truth is, so you really doesn't bring me much stress. He'd likes to go rogue sometimes behind the scenes and put us in difficult spots I think. Sometimes he likes to play. This God's character is a nice little crush. Sometimes because you can just say adds Stugatz, but sometimes I think he knows what he's doing smarter than he lets on that Guy Yeah for sure. They have made a comment the other day about. Keep your daughters in line to do all the background noise and STU seemed to. Actually mad, so I guess the question is this is from BG core Often an actual real apology from an on air back and forth or it now at this point, they're a married couple, and they just kind of get over and. Married couples married couple have arguments. Great. But you know what I'm saying is part of show, and they know they over quicker, is there? We've been doing this show for very long time. There's a lot of personalities and I know we're not in the pandemic where we're doing this remotely from our homes, but normally were broadcasting from very tight spaces. You can't go and and take a lap and collect yourself. If you get heated over something inevitably, you're going to get on each other's nerves. Inevitably, you got to do something that the other person feels like is crossing the line or takes offense to. I had a million apologies issued. I have received several apologies we. over the course of the year. They're strong disagreements like any like any band. That's been together for fifteen years. It's a very long time to do anything especially this with a burning a content being what it is, we put stuff out there, and we welcome people in our lives, and sometimes that's fodder for the show and could just say the wrong thing at the wrong time, so that's that's totally normal. But they're good. They're good and they wouldn't be together still if they weren't good at patching things up. The drunk Ohio Ohio in. Favorite better character of yours at it just never made the show in. A FAVOURITE BITTER CHARACTER! No sorry bit or Something that you think is funny. That dan terrible allow although I. Think, we have such a high standard that we developed character and somewhere you say this is not fully baked. Go to air. No I will say it probably works the other way. They were characters that people like that. We just don't like doing for instance I hate death metal hockey guy I think it's not at all funny, not at all funny and super grading, and some people like it. Unfortunately Dan likes it. But I I hate that character. It's so bad it's bad. For Mike Supervisor, dude?.

"Personal rankings. Each they're. Good. In terms of I mean talking about sport. We get amazing matchups in sport less bananas. Terms eliminations. You've witnessed maybe both watching her in person like where does that rank all time for you? Oh one of the best like I've met. I've watched the show, so I wasn't a huge fair like I was a big brother. Better I've watched. The show and I was well aware their whole. Relationship and it just. I think all the fans wanted to see that. They knew that. You know that we were all hyping it up. You kind of Corey Nelson, but I think the whole house water to see that happen and I don't think was wanted to go down. Had that pressure from just? I think he you was GonNa make good TV, and that's both just good for their great actor showman. They're good at what they do and I think, win or lose, they made. Great, TV edit was like. Putting myself in a fans. Like point of view, it was. It was really good to watch I mean and they're both pro. I gotta get West is. Good at this game roll like I wish I don't. They've Sony what seasons, but West is really good so I. I don't think that laws takes away anything from him, you know. It seemed like you were itching to get in there. Though. Are you upset or you didn't WanNa? Go Against Janis Your I. Did I did it so I think that. At that point, we were so late into the game and the pressure was on. Killing, but did not want to go up against our, and there was one person I didn't WanNa go against. It was Johnny. I think you know. I was having such a hard time in there. Personally I was struggling really bad like I've I've struggled with anxiety and all that stuff main johnny was Johnny. noni which you guys don't really have to see, but there were people that were just like. Helping in so many ways we a really good friendship and you know. He was definitely somebody out of the guys that was in my corner, so I. Didn't. WanNa go up against it? You know so. That's the only person but anybody else you know I don't give I. Honestly don't care how they portrayed. I was willing to go up against any other guy, but I just didn't want to be here. And KAYLA WANNA, go home because we were wondering like how to Noni manage when she was in charge like she had the power, and lost both her allies in government done before there was another for arrangement there that we didn't see on TV like listen. We both have to kind of go home. Fix things with our boyfriends. I don't want to talk about. There was formerly. There was something I don't WanNa. Talk about that, but yeah, that's. That's. That's good, that's. That theory everybody can take that. Do what they want with. That basically didn't watch something was. I'm defending non in that situation ninety the not botch it and it sucks that she it was. It was edited that way, but she did not botch it. I think that you know. The girls were checked out that I think the game got Saddam. They had a lot going on outside and I. Don't blame them. 'cause with the pressure of the game and their personal life. That's that was breaking them down, but you know I think that Yeah Noni got. Got Screwed with that. Edit for sure I. Pending a little bit. You were just talking to you about wes and how much respect you have for his game, obviously great relationship with bananas as a really close friend of yours. We've been trying to gauge from people. Like who do you think is the all-time ultimate player from the challenge? Either somebody has played with or against just watched trough I do so many man. There's I mean you can talk about like. And the ones that I've played with you know like. Great at the game. I feel like he's like the dad of the house like we all go to him and like you know I don't think anybody ever wants to target him. Bill Gates Him. He wouldn't have been pretty set if you didn't jump in so early into that elimination, but I think for me friendship. Wise just you know. See how. They played a game I. Think Jordan, Tori are. Amazing like on A. Level socially politically they're. Good and and just physically Mandera some of the best to compete in the game. They Jordan has proven that. Tori has proven to speak on that but dumb. Just seemed on how they play. They're really good at the game, and of course, Johnny and West. Just you know I. This is the thing in my mind when I go in. It's like if you're not working with your against me and I. Know that was never his quarter like he's never never going to be. In this quarter, we clash game I don't think that's going to happen. Trust. That I learned my lesson. I'm just not a number in his side. And that's you know it's scary and I see the way that he. He's just really good at the game, so I respect to him to think. Dole four from me playing with them and seeing how they play I think. They're definitely some of the best ever do it. Why around you know? You had maybe the most iconic elimination remember with the universe, Jordan like. Can we go back there for a second like? Over an hour. That's what I was going to ask. Because it was editor at this point, you guys were soaked in salt. Our Dude. That's when I realized like this. Kid has so much. I was a key conclude you saw in that. In, that our was probably like an I think that Scott our producer told me I think like an hour, twenty or something like that. It was getting close to our thirty. She said that they thought that I was GONNA. Win The first one. The second round can just gas me, I do two hundred and forty six. One like. I was on this little platform. He was outsmarted me and gas, and that edit I mean. He. He's proven just with that element, nation and other. It's GonNa be me, but I is good man and I..

Laura Bod. Should we are to talk Josh all right? We're joined now by. Say!

Thank you for having me man I'm. Really excited to join you guys. It's been hard to get me on, but I'm I'm excited to be here and talk guys. And things really love dude. I appreciate that that's that's a huge compliment. The thing about you that I like and bananas really helped also gets the Bananas Really Complimentary of you last week views the really relatable and just kind of like a normal dude. Where everyone else like of you were out there like you know Jack Their into themselves. They just WanNa be famous, and you seem to just be Josh. No matter what's going on I mean that's the one thing. I'm proud of like, even though I have moments where. I cringe and I get upset at myself watching back. It's real men wear my heart on my sleeve and I myself almost identically myself every single time I watched good or bad and I as much as there's moments where I regret there. That's how I felt in the moment i. just got learn from it. Grow from it and be better but I. Pride myself in just being true to who I am, and I never signed up I never went on TV for fame or none of that Dude I. don't even think that myself but I just wanted to make money you know now it's I'm looking at something with the child. Things, Bananas said was he said you're very honest and you're very loyal. It's interesting like juxtaposing those type of qualities against what you see in a lot of other people in the challenge where they're kind of like Navy backstabbing, so do you make a conscious decision? I guess. You said it right there. You'RE GONNA. See you are, but do you make a decision to say? This is I'm GONNA. Play my game and it's going to be different from everyone else's. Even really thought about it like that, but he I do play my game like that because that's who I am. I'm very. My thing is I'm extremely loyal in real life had always been like that and what I'm learning with playing. The challenge is burn me multiple only three seasons. I've been burned because I expected the same loyalty in return. This is the first time where I watch myself back in like all right. Josh, it's time to you. Know Not Invest so much into. Into certain relationships expect the same loyalty in return kind of myself forbid bid, but no I do going just being myself in dots high play the Games is being honest, and and trying to remain loyal to the people giving my word, it's worked for me, but I think in future seasons definitely. GonNa have to change that up because it's burn me. Seasons in a row, so I have to go there from that. Where does everything stand with West Right now? Because he's defending twitter twitter's stuff. So! I'm not even talking about West I. Think what? I. Think that with relationships that I'm talking about is Ollie End Swaggie with big mother. Thing. That's where I'm going with that I'm west. Dude, honestly man I. It's weird because I feel like West is great at his crafty so good at the start I mean he's. One of the best ever play, but I think that with west is the thing that scares me about him, and it's not about me thinking. He's my rob or anything. West has been at the game when you live with somebody the way they he plays the game that environment it terrifies. You and I know that I was ever somebody in his quarter. Number? Never an ally so my head going into the season. I was like this guy's going to. Be! Wanting back I was like bro is deadly paranoid, but I mean like we just got off of season thirty four. Why blindsided the guy who was a few months? We're watching. We filmed probably six months ago, but this was we only had probably like two months before jumping into from season thirty four to thirty five, so we were still on edge, and we just under reunion, so I thought he was going to go for me now. I know that the guy was. And I know that in the House I would have been way more. Chill but Dude. West is good at the game, and there's no bad blood therein I. Think Moving forward, and I'm leaving that alone. Yeah, stay ready! You don't have to get ready. I'm with true true. This season though you have been pretty chill, Josh at least what we've seen so far. I mean I don't know if something's coming that. We haven't seen yet, but in the past seasons A. Known to be somewhat emotional. You wear your heart on your sleeve this season from your bag forth with West. You've kind of been under control. No Joe Walsh well. We gotta go through a step by. Okay well, I love you. Let me ask this. This because it's funny, we've had a couple people on, and we're watching the show and you see people say the bunkers make me crazy. The bunkers making me crazy. You can be a real thing, but then the people say it is so. The whole deal at the bar was swaggie. Like is a little bit of that like kind of walk us through. What was going on mayor just in the bunker? So, there's a lot that factored into that huge. Blow up I think. We were probably a month and a half. We're probably a month into filming already and one hundred percent zero that bunker. It's crazy because in our interviews, we all talked about how I mean. We were having breakdowns. People were I I would say at the point of depression like you know. It was so hard living in that environment, and I've been in that sort of confinement with big brother, but I. Never put myself back in that situation, and that's the first time that I like. Isolated myself like that again because impasse eases, we had a bit more freedom. That bunker broke us down and I think just being confined with each other twenty four seven. They know what they're doing. Bro! They knew what. The setup was insane and it definitely got to us, but with the swaggie thing on really subscribe on being honest I'm obsessed how the way they edited that again. There's so many. Lines, but I mean. They knew that that was gonna be such a big blow up. They could at least show different conversations that I. Try to have with him where I felt like Swaggie was really friendly with me off camera. And as soon as there was a scene being film, or there was a moment where you know there was a camera we were talking about something game related I felt like Swaggie, was costly going out of his way to make me look bad bringing up my big brother season Rowell's emotional. Facts, but it's like if you're my friend, then why are you trying to point out all my flaws, so it had nothing to do with the whole west situation that just added to the fact I was already calculating the he was trying to make me look bad on camera so when he said hypocrite and he couldn't back it up all right now i. I see your intentions Joel for that end the drinks were throwing. He doesn't drink. Also what do you? What's your intention to pick a fight with me? While I'm just trying to enjoy my friends like he inserted himself in that conversation and blew up with that being said I was wrong, completely wrong how I handled, and that's the thing like it's like. Did I feel out in the moment and yeah, but was I wrong and I do I feel really bad for doing the drink. One hundred percent and I was sal, but I feel like there was a lot that wasn't shown. That is widely didn't just blow up out of nowhere. You know it was build up. Constantly feeling like this is how my back and he was going out of his way to. Make me, look a certain way.

Figure there's going to be a big back in for Johnny and and West and. It is pretty cool especially talking to Johnnie last week about this very thing talking about ct and just thinking about challenge legacy at a stage where you're like almost forty and you probably don't have that many left. It was so cool to see that it was so cool to see them like both recognize that they had a moment. That's going to be like conifer the show forever. That's Kobe Lebron finals. We never got yeah. One of my favorite parts, though is Tj. Call Johnny, bananas a legend, and they just flashed to corey giving the biggest Iro.

So this is not an unpaid internship position, but we are joined now by Ribe Robin. He's a data analytics Grad student at McGill and Montreal and he is your new Jordan wisely. UNOFFICIAL ESPN's number, one challenge podcasts that decision, so just toss a little bit about how you ended up here. Guys thanks for having me so from Montreal. I'm doing my masters in business data analytics. The analytics at McGill University I. Listen To this podcast all the time I watched the challenge religiously for a few years now. So doing stats all made sense to to DM. You want twitter and see if you guys are actually serious about having this. Amazing and and Even I mean we got around up on the front of this. We did a bit of an informal interview. Sorts that I was very bad but I. You showed me showed me a spreadsheet in that interview and I feel like if we could just tease a little bit of that spreadsheet, for at least the viewing audience, so we can get a taste of what we can expect for our challenge stats of the week through our new unofficial satisfaction. So here we have a data. Were all the contestants from season thirty five season that we're on right now. Show. They came from originally where they're frahm, there are rookie or not all demand seasons the amount of wins they have on the challenge elimination stats also. How much money they went on the challenge, their social media followings. Y. That relevant Oh. That's relevant that's. Part of the game milly. Correlations in there. I don't know I haven't I haven't analyzed that data yet. Who is one point? Thirteen wins per season. Wow BS. That's your. Best win season. Four point three three Josh Josh is how. Josh Martinez is small sample size, though very small sample size. I like you're walking us through that Ryan. Because we're seeing the stats, and then to have you scroll back over. It's like the big reveal, not feeling like these stats are matching our thoughts and feelings on some of the inste- players. Someone Elizabeth set told us right there. That's right for some blind resumes. So without further ado, we got a little taste of what to expect in future weeks from our new up and running challenge staff's department. But if you could just begin with our inaugural challenge out of the week, take it away right. So I wanted to look to see if there was a prime for these challenge athletes to do that. I took the four challenge intestines that have been around longest Anita. Bananas West C. T. and looked at their elimination performance before and after the age of thirty one. So before thirty one, we can say that they're still in their prime there at a sixty nine percent elimination winning percentage, and then after their thirty and older that drops all the way down to thirty percent wasn't working for an, Isa, won the elimination. Wow, look at bananas there to in ten and eliminations after age thirty one. That's tough and we. We literally just talked to him about that as a thirty one year old. I'm not liking reading this chart. Not Great Grinding I got a year left. Let's go. You'll have one shot. Prime your let well. This is fantastic right. I think this is a great start. It's very topical coming off of Bananas Interview. Talking about how ct might be a little over the hill. So I guess we have this look forward to every week now. All right. Thank you so much for having me. Thanks for joining. Me Bud. Yeah like. The chunky dogs hungry. Recipe. Mike God Junkie wants to Ella's recipe. What are we got? Lose okay. I had a lot of ideas this week, but I had to go back. Into haven't made in a long time because I needed to include. Ingredient. School. About perhaps, thank you John And Bananas. So. Trailing. Keenum have spent a good amount of time in the south. You're currently in the mountains of North, Carolina. Truly Kravitz You I. Don't Know Is. Is National considered the south? Did you go to school? That's the south bucket so. Never had banana pudding. Of course. Love it. My favorite banana pudding is from Magnolia. Bakery in New York which is not southern, but I still think this is a southern delicacy, so ingredients short-list one can of sweetened condensed milk about a cup and a half of water. I said a box of vanilla pudding powder, but come to find out. It's vanilla pudding mix three cups of heavy whipping cream, but if you're lazy, you can just buy like a tub of cool weather something. And then three to five bananas and Nell. Away, I like the. Cookies under underway for best cookie got them all time maybe. Trailing call, them. Nello Wafers I do loud. You're going to say it, yeah. Yeah, I'm sorry. I. Would say differently can't see God's some Nell la. Is a first step you take. This we in condensed milk. In the water and you whisk it together till it's kind of dissolve together in Daniel at the packet of Vanilla Pudding. And Billy you're GONNA hate this. Way Twenty seven to forty eight hours combined with three to four hours then. But it really needs to set up or just going to be a watery mass. So after three to four hours. You'RE GONNA. Whip your heavy whipping cream to make a whipped cream by each could really just use cool. If you WANNA take easier route in the new fold, the pudding mixture into the whipped cream or full. The whip came into the pudding mixture. I think they're folding. The whip cream into the funding mix jack, and it's just going to be like light and fluffy putting in the new. Get a big bowl earth trifle dish in you layer that Nilo wafers banana pudding. Keep going until you have no ingredients loft in. Make sure the end with putting on the top, so the bananas don't get Very Brown. It's just light and fluffy and sweet and vanilla wafers like. Soak up the pudding in get. And so good, so that was an honor of Johnny Bananas. SAP. Back to act banana weeks. Is Less we. Run around for all you've been into lovers out there, and if you hate bananas, just ignore. Tune in next week. Find out if we're doing other banana's recipe or not. That knock knock joke. Not. A. Banana. Banana who. Now, not only. Remembered joke. Joke was telling.

"Do you just not give a shit like are you really just like the same as the Kardashian social media and it's all just sort of to get play and now I've got a question and like I don't know that I would go back in question the first couple of albums. Let's be real. The first couple of albums is great as they are. They have a lot more filler than the later stop. Oh it gets much better as he gets older and when Mike Dean comes around it really changes right so it's all in question interesting conversation. I'm sorry to be hard on Kanye. It's it's all good. We'll let you go on this dude. Thank you again for joining us. On the mystery create cove nineteen when you think of the way that music has changed where the money is. Not In the album's the money is not in streaming. The money is on tours. The money is going to concerts. The money is gathering people to listen to your stuff. Now that we're in this age of social distancing of the new normal of we can't congregate and all these different things go into the future until vaccines found that even then who knows what's going to happen as we sports to. How is the future of hip hop GonNa be made now that concerts are gonna be may be obsolete like? How does that work? I actually think the biggest example we got was the bounty killer beanie man verses on you know as for people who don't know that these battles been happening Timberland and up till now up till this weekend to me. I was like this. I love them but I didn't see a model that made sense but with beanie and bounty in the same room with the sound perfect. Yeah where they were running the sound properly. I was Oh people would pay for this ship. people would pay for this shit. They had four hundred some thousand people in that room. If they were charging nineteen ninety nine they would not have had four hundred thousand people in that room but they would've had fifty thousand people narrow and that's a shitload load of money so I think we will see the cross pollination between social media and live performances coming together in concert concerts are things that you have small parties at home to watch on television. Wow and I think there'll be a shitload of money in it and frankly I would enjoy it more than going to a concert. I I would love having a party with fifteen people and we know the time ever drinks and you plug in your stereo system and it's like intimate and looks awesome and you. I'm not saying it would satisfy the exact same thing and I'd be happy with it forever but for a run for a couple years. Yeah I think it would work. That's crazy that's and it goes to show you like the sound. Quality needs to be right because remember with risen. Primo was like Rizza. Couldn't get a sound right and it just didn't it didn't flow as naturally as it could and then being inbounding was like. Oh Shit like this is. This is incredible and by the way all the main thing that took was then being in the same room because there are these. They're pretty simple. Setups that you can buy to make your shit sound flawless Hard basically one box you run into and then run out of and plug it in. Just good so the fact that they were together made it very easy and they had to. Dj's there were able to set it up properly though every battle. I wonder I'm like where's your DJ friend. Who's just like let me? Can you up man like I would have if I was there. Any of them are GONNA guys this trust whenever I have my own stupid little lives in my Dj Room. Probably have on a little bit today. All I do is but my phone near the speaker. It sounds like you don't need to do that much. It's not a very strange. Oh man he's Peter Rosenberg again catch on Hebron the morning catch on the Michael Kay show catch up on cheap e W W network a FC whenever you guys get around to doing that just everywhere openly accurate what else do we have a L. relayed on Sunday nights. Yeah you're hitting a lot if you're listening to the Sunday night show. I've been uploaded recently on my mixed cloud page Rosenberg radio. So if you want to hear the new underground ship that I'm playing you can catch that on my makes loud. I post a lot of it. I'll post artists and stuff on my instagram stories. As at Rosenberg radio as well but Thanks for making time do is a phone conversation dude absolutely appreciate you making time? Man shares a huge show. Thanks to Peter Rosenberg for hooking it up and talking with your boy. I think that was a really interesting. Look into his journey into what's going on hip hop right now and again. This is a menu item. We've got a lot of them here on the chart and friends network one that I do want to pitch right now. Is South Beach Sessions? Dan Does an incredible job with some of the most influential and smart and interesting people that he has come through the studios in South Beach and go listen subscribed rate review to all these South Pete sessions. The one with Bob Costas was a two parter. And I don't know if there's somebody more trained more polished than Bob Costas an where he never wastes a word and in the interview that you just heard. Obviously we make reference to Bob. Costas being somebody who does not use filler words which is incredible obviously took a long time to get that way but those are the last two recent episodes of South Beach sessions and again you can listen to any of these shows on the Libertarian friends network whether it be stupidity South Beach Sessions Marty. Smith's America that's what she said with Sarah Spain. The meantime show featuring lenny all those are great listens. Thank you for supporting us. During this difficult time again we give you.

"I can listen from top to bottom and it just flows like a masterpiece. Yeah no easy. And that. And that's the spacey should be. I mean if he's stumbled on a hit one day which I think possible. Then he will but he doesn't need to because he gets his money other places you know. Bronson's of master guest. He will always have a way to promote what he's doing because he's such a good guest on shows like who doesn't WanNa talk to Bronson. He can literally do. Martha Stewart or ESPN shows or hip hop shows. He can do anything and be engaging an awesome so he'll always have that opportunity but honestly if forty had gotten drake on acting crazy. History is different. And when I heard acting crazy I was like to have to put drake on the remix. They Ha this would be so high that it's actually my issue. I have with drake. I feel that drake fixes spots where he wants to do things with people but a lot of times. There's a spot where he could change someone's career completely and he lays out and to me he should have been on acting crazy. Because it's a drink record is a drake record that Bronson did and it really if drake popped in on bursts to all my it would have been noticed. Shut down everything it would have shut. It would have been incredible but it's still a great so I love that record. We listen to stuff just as creatures of habit like listen acting crazy a couple of times a week just to heerden thousand pick different different different tracks from just like I need to hear it know choreographer all those getting to drink liquid. Why is it? I don't know if you have the answer. Why is it that everything he touches? Is Gold everything in some ways? It's just obvious 'cause he's great. He and his catchy and his songs are just good. And then there's another level to it. That's like hard to even quite bit. You're out although I will say. It's very interesting to gauge. Whether his current record is a hit You know he hasn't had a miss. No one's had a record by drake. Just his record of success is I'm not saying in terms of quality. We are you quality all day. I still argue that drake is still missing quote unquote classic album. And I know they're other people feel that take care of the classic and I'm too old or it may be so not a classic right there close either way the success. It's an arguable. No one's had a run like this on Tom. Certainly in hip hop on argue. No one's had a run like this on top period in any genre. I'd I'd have to go look. I'd have to go open up the Beatles catalogue and look at the years to see because your gut goes well. The Beatles sure but the Beatles are completely over by the mid seventies so I'd be curious to look on the time line and even see what the Beatles or like you know. Stevie is run on top like yes. He was little stevie wonder but then his real run as a credible adult artist. You're talking about from the mid late sixties to early eighties. Always now Michael Jackson's run if you include the Jackson Five. That's an unbelievably. I mean Michael had success over forty years. We just incredible but drake is in a conversation with artists. Like that like the back. I had to go. Let me look the Beatles exit fact that you have to go there to make comparisons because you can't do it. Nip while people's runs have been `as long none have been as consistent you know. Hove has had an incredibly long run. He was never as consistently dominating the hip hop sound as drake was he would go in and out and go away for a few years and come back and drake now since he came out. You're talking about a full decade ten straight years of number one and sensory. So now listen I guess to be. I guess I'm exaggerating for him to get to the true level of guys. We just mentioned he'd have to do it for another five or six years before you could really say that but the thing is I don't have any evidence he's ever going to break so until I see it and that's why I said this most recent albums interesting to gauge. Because like you would think Tuesday slot would be the biggest record in the world. It doesn't feel like it is but no one's partying really so I can't quite tell what's right and he's talking about coming up with another studio album coming up this summer. So are we going to see something there? That could be that next the pinnacle that he's trying to reach a masterful album because when they look at the asked and he has to end when you look across his peers when you talk about greatness there's guys that have made masterful albums like for me. Kanye. West's my beautiful dark twisted fantasy. I think to me is his magnum opus. Like I don't know if there's another record that just top to bottom as as perfect as not one yet. When you look at Drake you say okay. Take care maybe nothing was the same okay Scorpion was kind of a throwaway. He just doesn't have that yet. Conde you could argue. He has three just absolute masterpieces. Right like I- My beautiful dependencies. My favorite one. I say but I could be in a mood and argue. Graduation is like right there in the in the same breath even eight. It's is incredible and you're like the time we're like what is this now. You look back and you go. Oh my God almost every song. Yeah Yeah and then Yeezus is not perfect but parts of it are awesome and then Life of Pablo is ridiculous. Like it it's now it's best moments are just ridiculous like it has a stretch. Where you're this is perfect then. His most recent records in a period. I straight up. Don't like him don't want to hear from him. Don't find you interesting. Thank your stupid at this point and don't make sense shot the up. I still love the records. I I still think they're like I still think. Yea has a bunch of great shit on it. And even the last record while I find his rapping to be trite and stupid musically on the Gospel Record. There are a handful of songs that are beautiful and incredible so like he is put himself in a category. That's incredibly challenging. And if he didn't shoot himself in the foot so bad he is damaging his legacy long-term. There's no doubt in my mind that we will if he doesn't turn it around. At some point we will not talk about him in quite the same terms we should. It's crazy drake doesn't have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy that he has a lot know that he doesn't and just to touch with. Jesus King like the Gospel sounds and it goes to show you just how how much musical genius Connie is where he can take those samples and take basically acquire. Just have them do that and sound the weight like sonically. I think that album is beautiful. Listen to the music like the the Old Southern Gospel Choir. All that stuff is just incredible. Munc- and it is true like he's got so many just like hits. Hits hits hits on albums that even when he misses it still sounds good and I think that's the question on the story. Alternately gets written on Con- like this which is what does he actually do on those records. I think it's all up for major debate and I think one day we will need you dig in and by the way. We wouldn't have done this if he was an asshole. But since you are being an asshole now you're GonNa make me really question. Have you been doing it or are these Mike Deniau? Ooh because a lot of people feel that Kanye over the last decade or so goes into album owed steals from the other talented people around them takes their. Sounds whether it's drake whether it's chance whether it's big Sean whether it's kid cutty whether it's Mike Dean socks all the creative juice out of them takes that juice and adds it to what he does in all of a sudden gets magic and like I said I don't think people would question but now is other decisions make you question his moral fabric and now that unquestioning your moral fabric now. Are you ripping people off too? Because once I saw you go up to the White House do everything you did and say all the Dumb Shit you've said repeatedly now.

"One like this. I know this sounds really lofty. So forgive me but like one person I relate to in terms of the job. He has an how he gets crushed for it is Steven A. St Stephen's is be most say what you want. He's the most compelling broadcaster we have in the company or not funny there. He's kept the lights on at certain points right like he's the man however he gets crushed for not being an expert kind of in anything anymore. Nba I'd say it's pretty close to still being an expert right but still there. He's not he's not. Whoa GE he's not Ryen Russillo you know. He's not he he but he's very high level but the thing is when you do as much work as even duds you can no longer be in and out nerd of every detail. That's and guess what that's not. What makes him great? What makes him great is his ability to entertain you. When he's on a microphone. I suffer from the same thing that I think. Really good. When I'm on the MIC but I'm no longer the foremost expert in hip-hop. I'm not the foremost expert in sports. And I'm not the foremost expert wrestling so you end up getting all the things that you're passionate about new live for every time you talk. There's someone who is like you don't know shit mother of so much more than you. I had that job. I could do this. That and you just want to. Yeah but you don't have the job and never gonNA can have the job because you're not as good and you don't as hard so. I know I can no longer follow. Who every indy wrestler is in the world. I don't know them until they get to. Wwe That's just the way it is now. My job isn't that my job now is to present it once. It's here. I work the hardest on music of course because I'm so passionate about it and my role is more important because on my Sunday night show. I can break artists and health careers so I work a lot harder in the music area. But even there dude like I know a lot of underground New York rappers. And if you're going to tell me a bunch of new soundcloud rappers who have ten million. They can be huge that my niece and nephew are twelve and they put me onto stuff that I don't know like in that soundcloud mainstream world. So you're just always going to have limitations and I find that part to be challenging and frustrating at times you're like I am spread too thin I don't i. Do I know anything about anything anymore? You know what I'm saying and it's funny too because as you grow in the industry and it's you girl like you said almost like you have to be a mile wide but an inch thick on. You need to know a ton of Shit. But you're never gonNA be an expert in one thing unless you solely focused on that one thing and I feel like I'm a kindred spirit with you in that sense where I love sports but that's not the only thing I wanna do like I love music but I love something else. There's so many different things on the spectrum that you can be a voice in. That's why admire you so much is because you have all these different places were your on a different pedestal than everybody else. Because of the knowledge because of the work you put in. And that's one of the things that I think I try to emulate in a bunch of different people that I see at that level is everybody has the same thing and kick ass work ethic like. That's it like half the time the people that I talked to is. I'm not better than the next guy. I just work my ass off ten times harder than he did. So when you talk about and I think I'm Gonna I'm GonNA bring this over to to the hip hop scene when you are trying to to pick up on rappers and hip partic- you're going to bring up and be like this is the next Guy. I think he's there. What's that work ethic versus just God given talent like? How does that measure out? I think like everything. It's split because like I think that there are cats out there who were amazing and just never became much because they didn't put the work ethic in or in hip hop to me. It's it's work ethics. Always a mixed bag. They all work really hard when they're all like studio rats. There are a lot of people though who what they do in the studio. Just sit around and get drunk but but but for me. It's more about the. Are you willing to listen to what other people say? Are you willing to try to make complete songs versus just spit hot bars? Are you just trying to have a commercial sound right now or are you really an artist? Who's trying to push in music? I think it's almost more complicated. They're multiple levels. There's like there is the work ethic part like if you're not willing to grind. I know artists in my life who I really was passionate about and I saw as time went on on my really. Want this like that like when the when the lights started to shine they were Kinda like. I'm not trying to go on the road and do all this shit right now. Like I'm good and the truth. Is your early run. It's it's really a grind like if someone says hey we want you to go do this event. We need you to be there then. There are other people though. They're artists we all know that hot a week ago throw never say their names out loud. We all have artists at hot. We know show up to everything we ever do. But they're not that great you know they. They show up there helpful if we have a small event. We need a celebrity on it or no problem radio station on there and you love artists like that but some of those ones aren't that cool they don't pop. They don't have that it factor. They're just hard-working. Good guys so it can go both ways like you just sort of have to have a mix of really in music really high level talented really high level work ethic. One guy that I feel is a really interesting case. Study from a hip hop perspective. On how commercial he is yet the mix between like his rhymes and his lyrics versus the way that he can sell himself. Somebody very well action Bronson like action to me is somebody that has crossed over a lot of people have but he's been able to crossover in ways of like obviously his his shows like his books the whole cooking aspect food aspect of what he does on top of having like fire bars. He somebody to me. That is so interesting. Tell me like what makes Action Bronson Work? Will Bronson decided at some point? I think after his album. I think he decided. I don't WanNa make like major label albums like this and I'm just going to do what I do. And I'm going to get money and popularity in the other things that I do and the music part. I'm GonNa make the high feel because I think he was frustrated by the process of Mr Wonderful. I think it I mean listen He. He's a complicated are. They're all complicated. Let's get data are and I think him having a follow along. I mean after that album shortly thereafter. He the relationship you. The management relationship with Paul Rosenberg ended the he went his own way. I just think he decided being forced to be in. That box didn't work for him. Even though I the album was great it was first of all and I think that the song the record with chance should have been a smash and had it had it come out one year later. When chance was a megastar I think it would have been out of here and I think a couple of little things that could have been and that could have made that song better. I think you could have put chances of our sooner. There were a lot of little things that were done. That didn't allow that to happen. I also thought that act crazy could have been bigger and in crazy stupid like I. Love has size. He has stuff he has. He has just like word. Play that for me when I listened to it and it was all over blue-chip seven thousand two like the stuff that he says and just the way that he says you're like Holy Shit. How does this guy even think of stuff like that? And that's what I mean when I say the work ethic versus the talent. I think that he has the talent just to be dislike lyrically megastar yet he choose to do something different which is respect because like you said he had a problem with the label not trying to make these huge commercial hits and then all the sudden he comes out with seven thousand. It's like we've been doing a lot of these stupid challenges during the pandemic. It's like what are the four albums you can listen to without skip. Blue seven thousand for me is one of those..

"Oh I mean the videos up there so you can find the video on youtube and it's ridiculous. I don't really know what I'd do it but I was freaking for everybody. So there was there was I was freaking to meet. Angie like I interviewed Angie Yeahs Info. I'm eating Info Angie Martinez in under new CO worker. Like it's ridiculous old finished ridiculous. I interviewed Ross and Ti. And I'm sure the locks and babb and every summer jam at that point still backstage was nuts meaning like there were just tons of people everywhere. They've really locked down. It's not quite the same anymore. At that point. It was still like when you're standing in the hallway you to see a mob of people walking in and then you're like who's in the middle of mob or shit that so it's so it was just it was just wild and I was just you know going up to people and shooting my shot with each one and and they didn't no one was introducing me I just had the MIC flag and was like I'm so and so it was amazing. It was amazing. I think that night was my first show on the air so I got thrown right into it and it took a little while to really believe that I was on the air doing the show. It was it was pretty. My blood know. There's only a few people that have this affliction and I feel like in radio in media. A lot of us have this like innate insecurity about ourselves for some reason or another right. We can go on and talk to you know like you do on. Michael Cash where you talk to eighteen million New Yorkers about whatever yet you go out and say man I sucked asset segment. I was horrible. That segment and we have this built in insecurity about ourselves. When did you overcome that? Like being in being at hot ninety seven doing your show like meeting all these people and saying everybody here is so much better than I am like. What am I doing here how my June is like? How did you break through that? So my insecurity manifests itself differently. I never have that part. I think I'm better than everyone. I really do when it comes to radio. I really think I'm as good as it gets. And until like you know with Barry there are exceptions like there are people out here and I'm like that person that stuff now like there are people with certain skill sets that I don't have an I will be like. Wow I can't do that When we interview Bob Costas The way. Kostas talks the ability to have every word being meaningful. You're like I just WANNA listen to you talk. All Day I waste so many words like I blurted ramble. And I'm not there yet. Colin cowherd not not a fan of him view is all his ability to seize and keep people around. It's ridiculous like I'm a radio guy and he has gotten me to stay in my car that I wanted to with. This mother says that's what it is. I just WanNa hear yet exactly Charlemagne. I literally hate his guts as a human being and his ability to create a moment to be like. I'm going to make something happen here. And he sees it from before he does it. I don't know that it's something I would want to do. But I admire the ability to be able to do it and I can't do it so like and I say hated strong. I don't like so I'm able to see certain things people do and be like. I don't have that skill I would like to have that or I don't think we'll ever have that but my insecurity is like it's more about acceptance like it's a really basic like. I said it's you over our text like my insecurity comes out on like why is a laboratory. Never have that is. I'm literally the most outspoken in the entire company just like fighting constantly the same sort of fights but on the New York Airways and I'm like I and he loves people he has random rappers who had two songs on telling their stories. I'm like nominee better stories. I haven't called me to be on your show so it's more things like that like I'll I'll see things within the company and I'll be like actually get that opportunity. Why not me? Why does own so get that spot? Not Me and over the last two years. I've learned to see why that's faulty. And I'm not saying the feeling doesn't exist because it does but I really tried to get better at not feeling that insecurity just being really happy with the work that I do So yeah for me. It's less about performance insecurity and more about acceptance of insecurity. That's what we all are insecure that offer that is a I mean. I have never met one broadcaster. Who is not insecure? I mean like I said cost this is a very rare example apiece. Says he doesn't care what you say about him. He doesn't even look at it. He doesn't up for the most part. You know from Michael K to Ebro to every big broadcaster. I've ever been around. Even though they're very confident and a lot of ways I know all of security I can say all of them and I can certainly see mine very very clearly. And that's such an interesting point because as you said you see so many different people. And they've attained such stardom in that field and yet are people that are insecure. Like you said I think the best but why not this. Or they're like I'm not that good you're right and then you just like you know you've got twenty five million dollars this year. What do you mean? You're not good so that that part is really interesting to me. That the psyche of the broadcaster. Because somebody like you. The toes in both sports in hip hop has the avenue to see so much more. I think than somebody that is an by the way. Wwe To you do all these different things. How do you not spread yourself on this? Like is it work ethic is it desire is just like I want to do this. I'm going into it. I mean I have myself in in some ways. It depends like life wise. I haven't spread myself thin. I have at times. I'm currently very grounded everywhere..

"That real he's GonNa real lineage in the game and so but he started putting me on Friday nights at nine o'clock from one to ten he would do. We'd have this one hour a week where we could play hip hop records like real hip hop records and he let me Co host with a basically he was like I would get what we play. I we played this be played that and he would like. Pnd THOSE MY D- my Dj and then he's PM on the phones. And I will be the person I just got to do that. And you know in my hometown too. So it was a huge. That was the beginning an intense your question as long as awake humanly possible that I guess was when I started being like I could do something here. Getting from there to hot ninety seven's still seemed impossible at the time but that was the beginning of me thinking like this is a path that could work. So it's a really cool statement because there's times in your professional career and I'm saying just an anybody's professional career where you set a goal or you think that if I make here one day like that's it I'm done like I just achieve my dream you know. That's why they always tell you Higher when you're doing your goals because once you get to a certain place that you think I made it you realize Saint Shit and I gotTa do more than what I'm doing like for you. Like interning with tigger you. If you would've told yourself that a couple years prior that would have blew your mind and then couple years later. You're at Hot Ninety. Seven like when you walked into hot ninety seven for the first time not as an employee as somebody just going to scope out the scene and what was happening. I draw the parallel very similar to me. Walk into ESPN or me. Walking into the Cleveland or for lebatardshow. So I grew up listening to libertad as a thirteen year. Old Kid fast for fifteen years later here. I am like walking in being part of the show. So it's it's almost surreal almost hollowed ground. So how was it when you walked in hot ninety seven and looking at funk flex and looking at all these Bibro like saying Holy Shit? I'm here like I made it here. It happened in a couple of steps so the first time I went up there I didn't have a job and I I would call hot ninety seven periodically and just try to get the program director at the time on the phone and eventually I got him on the phone and I kinda just gave them my spiel and he was like. Hey man you come here. Let's take meeting sometime. I was like twenty three twenty four and I just believed that like I'm going to be the only white dude who like openly speaks his mind and knows what he's talking about and credible and is not trying to be something else. I'm just going to be this guy. I know it can work and I went up there and I met with this guy named John and he and he was a white dude. Radio Guy. Nice Guy and gratefully took the meeting with me and I remember pulling up there in front of the building like I couldn't even fathom that I was walking inside and like you know hot. Listen radio has changed. We've said but like at that time in the early two in the early two thousands to be walking into that building hot. Nothing's like nothing. Nothing in the world is like Potman. There are a lot of hip hop stations. Some have some equity and then there's hot ninety seven. It's just a different thing altogether so I was just like overwhelmed by it and I met with him and he was kind of like. Hey you seem really passionate use. I listen to your tapes. You sound pretty good like you're not ready for this and I don't like this just isn't the time for you like you got to go get better and you know earn your way. Like basically he just kind of gave the opportunity to like taste. A little was like you're not you're not this. You're not yet and I was like okay so I went back and then kept years pass and I ended up hearing that Ebro who had now become the program director. Wanted to meet with me so when I went back again. It was very strange. I like I walked into the building to their morning show which was hosted by Miss Jones. Who is a character? Say the least and not someone. In retrospect you amber want to show up walking in on. Our show is a stranger. It's when people come into our show for some reason like a friend of a friend was approved to come sit in. Its awkward even for them and we're nice and it's still like no one really feels like dealing with that person six no more right right. You just like your mom knows so unsown zone zone. Now you're gonNA sit quietly in the corner when we wanna be cursing between breaks and talking Shit and like and like now. We have kind of mind our mouths because your ear. Miss Jones did not with me. She didn't even let me sit in the room during the show. I sat outside the room just listening to it in another studio. I actually fell asleep at one point. I sitting there by myself. I knocked out like an hour I was supposed to be sitting there like and I was like I didn't know what to do and I would just like envy was really cool to me but like Miss Jones didn't me at all. So the whole experience was mixed. I was Kinda like I don't even know what this is. And then like a week later Ebro calls me. And he's like Yo Bro. Got some good news and bad news. I was like okay. He was like the bad news is we're you know we're not gonNA use you as a producer on the morning show because they've been considering for me. Come help come up with ideas because I was doing youtube content so they thought I could like help do that kind of ship was. We're not going to go that direction. You let the good news is if you're up for it. I get excited. Every time I tell the story I still get excited. He goes he goes. The good news is if you're up for it we were thinking about giving you like a Sunday night. Show where you can like play the new underground hip hop. I was like I was like. There's no bad news that's just I don't want to work on that show at all. And having my own mic show is my dream. Wow and so that was it. I I showed up there and the first event I ever worked was summer jam. Two thousand seven it wanted me to host the interviews and stuff so they gave me a Mike and Mike I at work was just showing up to summer. Jam Backstage with a camera and Mike. Just interviewing people. You mean the top five people that summer jam and you you were there like Holy Shit. I'm talking to this person..

"Is the fact that the outpouring of people coming to us and saying on twitter on. Thank you for what you guys do like you guys help us through all this stuff somebody who is struggling with co or a family member and you guys got us through it just listening to you and making us laugh and stuff so it not that we're essential workers because we're not anywhere close to anything like that but hearing that people Appreciate what we do is kind of cool from from that perspective. Yeah totally and just the fact were able the realized how impactful it is and be realize it's a field that like men were lucky radio in particular you can continue to do like it just basically if we didn't get shut down through this we're never gonNA get shut down. We're going to be like radio will be okay. It's funny because every taken so many bullets over the last decade of like Radio Sato every everyone's listening to this and then here we are. You turn around and already actually stood up pretty tougher. That said you know. I have a lot of theories on radio in the way people treat it like. Everyone is obsessed with podcast. Has Maligned Radio Right? And it's like podcast is just. This is fake radio man. No one no one's jagged radio this other thing it's like you know it's like you know radio grade like less people hear it and like it doesn't. It's not live doesn't have that sense of urgency. It doesn't feel you know it's just like that except I can do it. My base and literally. Anyone can do it like it's it's so it's funny to me that radio station so many shots for so long and you realize like radios might be are so. I WANNA go back in time. Take me to the first time that you realized. Wait a second. I can do something in hip hop radio like. Where was that moment for you? Because I know you hosted a college underground hip hop show back then. I know that you were doing just super interested in hip hop from a young age as was. I just wasn't able to use that into moving into a hip hop thing. I was moving towards sports thing. So when did you know Holy Shit? I can actually do something. In hip hop radio. I really loved radio. I Love Sports Radio and I loved hip hop radio and at some point I started getting like more passionate about the hip hop side than sports. It was around the time that funk flex started getting really big am we would come to New York to visit my grandparents and even though I listen to the generation before that Marley Marl red alert of the the early days of operated stuff and I love that too. Something about blacks and his bravado and showmanship of it all I really really liked and wanted to like emulate and so I sort of started pretending to do that and when I got to college to Maryland in ninety seven I. The were two simultaneous thing. There was a big hip hop block on the radio station on Friday nights and I had reached out to the dudes who did that block. I remember where I was when I wrote the email. I sent his Sunnyvale Dur- During my senior year of high school when I decided Maryland and I sent a blind email being like. Hey I'm Peter Rosenberg. I WanNa do this on that and one of the dudes wrote me back through someone. I consider a friend now to this day and he basically was like. Hey write us an essay on why you should Blah Blah. And so it's funny now. In retrospect I get it a little bit more and I sort of appreciate that they were like this white dude wants to show up here. Do this thing. Let's see if he's really about this and In My classically white privilege way essay gotta here but to be honest. I totally view Y. You could argue things. One could argue. That was total white privilege bullshit. There's also an element of hip hop to it too. But I was like I'm not I love this shit counterculture. I love this shit. I know what I know what I'm doing. I've been doing this like I'm not writing you an essay or anything. I'M GONNA show up and do my shit and so it all worked out great in the sense that I didn't write the essay but I did show up every single week and just became the guy who was always there and and then became a beloved me and we became friends and they brought me and and they they were called the soul controllers and they were a staple Maryland but we were a tiny tiny station. It's ten watt radio station. We reached nobody. There was a lot of history and the station but was tiny and so I was doing that but simultaneously at Maryland. There were all these people doing sports and I was trying to sports broadcasting and do play by play up as well honestly. I when I got to. The sports competition was so strong like there were people. I met were so focused so serious and they took sports in this way. That was like so buttoned up. I'm not doing this. I was like this is not for me like I don't. I don't feel like I don't know if I was scared off by the competition or just didn't like the energy of it which by the way kind of still how I am you know and like My my pastors sports was totally roundabout as a result of that so I just started really pursuing the hip hop side of it and then got an opportunity to intern at the one of the hip hop stations. Nbc and intern for Tigger. Who's national personnel? Who was like he was legendary but he was a local radio guy there and he went to Maryland so I became is intern and just went incredibly. Hard as tickers intern. And you know. I realized I started figuring out like this. This could happen like I could get a shot here. One day and eventually did I got overnights a PG see I and I worked my way into PG see and you know I was definitively the only white dude doing that on both on both stations at that time in DC. And I I started believing then they believed in me. I worked my ass off like I was just a super ridiculous grinder and that you know. Even when I was interning tigger would he started doing a Friday night hip hop show like I. I started pushing him back into hip hop harder. Really because he was already taken was pop. It already being td. He was doing his own thing he was always almost on the TV side right so he was doing his radio show and it was cool but yeah he was. He was the man so I was. I was like just such a hip hop nerd that I think I helped a little bit. Kind of excite him too because he is that at art. Dj's from the Bronx Tigers got an amazing history. He was a dancer in the video for Sally by step. Sonic like these long way..

"What's up boys? Welcome into the mystery crate. It's your boy anthony as you know on the mystery crate. We give you a plethora of options to indulge your ear buds with what you're going to get this episode is something that is near and dear to my heart. Something that I love to learn about love to talk about. Look Listen To. And that's hip hop who better to talk about hip hop and somebody who is co hosting morning shows on undoubtedly the greatest hip hop station of all time on the planet. You can fact check that you can if you have an opinion on it. It's probably wrong because hot ninety seven in New York is the number one hip hop station and Peter Rosenberg who co host. Ebro in the morning. He's on the Michael. Kay show he does a lot of stuff complex. He's the guy that has his pulse on exactly what's going on in hip hop and he has for the better part of two decades now. He somebody that I've admired from afar and have always loved watching work and listening to him and his opinions on hip hop on the game and how everything is happening. So who better to have in this episode? Then Peter Rosenberg before we get to the HIP hop conversation. I want to talk to him about covid. Nineteen about how it's affecting him about how the media may change as we get out of the pandemic a little bit of his journey on how he made it too hot ninety seven how he has all these amazing opportunities with the wwe network with hot ninety seven with Michael Cash on. Espn like all these different things. He's a really fascinating character to me. Enjoy Peter Rosenberg a boy Tony. Talking hip hop man. Do I have a special treat for everybody for all the listeners heater Rosenberg him. Best from in the mornings for on the Michael Kay show I mean I could list maybe like twenty things that you're does on a constant basis and revolving basis but he somebody that I admire immensely from the ability for him to be in so many different fields and so many different industries at the same time and being so good at all of them. Peter thanks for joining me and everybody on the ministry. How're you doing during all this craziness pandemic? How's the family? How's everything well thank you? I appreciate the kind words I I'm cool I'm cool. I'm adjusting to this like everybody else is and You know phase by phase learning. What sort of means and You know I I think the experience of Covid nineteen in New York is very different than every other experience in the country and I think coming out of it's going to be different also so it's just a matter of figuring kind of what you're comfortable with where you stand. What changes you you make and but you know. Listen I'm generally. I'm generally cool so I I don't have a lot of complaints I've gotten to work And a knock on wood. I've been Healthy and you know surviving call for us the way that we do the show is we just get in through zoom and. I know. Obviously you're doing multiple shows a day. How is that for you? Do you go out and travel or you guys. You know deemed essential workers at the radio station. Are you doing stuff from home? Like how does that look? I've been fully at home with the exception of all my radio shows have been home. Only the only work done outside. My home is for wwe. I've gone to Stamford twice to work from their studio on a very small close set With a handful of people I did it for Wrestlemania and I did for the last interview money in the bank. Those are the only two times I've worked outside of my home. An interesting point too is the way that media is going to change now in the future. Post covid nineteen. How do you see things shaking out? Once we go back into a sense of new normal were you know the the things that we would normally do are being done at like a super deconstructed level? Do you think that the future is doing stuff from home or is it just going to be be more careful getting back into the studio? Like how does that look? I've been thinking about that a lot recently. Like what the differences will be what the pluses will be. What the minuses be. Because you do get the sense. It'll be easier to say. Hey I'm working from home today and people just to be like okay like we dealt with it every day for however long this is going to be. How much are you really gonNA freak out about one random day where you say you're working from home or hey I'm going away for a week? I'll be doing the show from there. I'm going to bring this and we're going to be fine. I think it's going to provide some major upside for those of us in the business. In that way I also think for booking guests that will become a more acceptable thing particularly radio to be like. Hey it's not it's better than a phone or it's not as good as in studio right now. It's it's IT's other middle but you still get to connect with a person and I think end up being downside. Burnett to like people were like. I'm not coming anymore when I do. I only WanNa do zoom interviews and having to figure out how to make that work so I think things will definitely be different and again. It all depends on what happens here. Like were in such mystery land about the the next month or two. You know I'm talking to people in some places and like you know you're in Florida in California. It's basically like for a lot of people they're just living life like it is already whatever whereas here. We're still very much like treating it like we're in the thick of it so I don't think we know like. Is there going to be some huge resurgence for we? All strictly lockdown again and it gets crazy or are we just on our way to open back up and everything's GonNa be okay and they'll find a vaccine and we'll move on like it. Just there's absolutely no certainty at also. I think a lot remains to be seen about how affect our business for sure and I think that they're like you said there definitely are pluses to the fact that the game is going to change completely in the way that everything was so rigid before. We'RE GONNA start expanding to a lot a more understanding places because of this covid nineteen but. I'm just glad that we've been able to continue to do what we do. Which has helped people just kinda take their mind off of stuff and I think that's one of the things that have been really like enlightening at least for me and for us on..

"Hey Jeff we're going to talk to a felony motto Mildenberger. Now he's He's a professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara. And you know he's he's an interesting guy. He's got a lot to say about about candidates and where they stand on climate change. He's a political scientist. He also has a really interesting new. Study out about solar panels else and whether Republicans or Democrats are more likely to have solar panels on their homes and and his findings are are pretty interesting. You looked at at people who have installed solar panels in their homes to see if it makes any difference in terms of their political behavior. Whether or not they have solar solar panels on the roof that right exactly. That's right so one way to think about this is we're able to answer the question. Imagine that you you find yourself in some some neighborhood any random neighborhood in the United States and you're standing in front of a house that has some solar panels on it. What can you know about the ideology about the political behavior of the people who actually live in that house? What we find is really interesting? We find that there is no real partisan gap we find that Democrats and Republicans are equally likely to be installing solar panels on their homes overall across the entire country. There are a few more Democrats than Republicans who have solar but that's entirely function of the fact that solar solar is concentrated in states and locations. That have more Democrats living in them like California but within a neighborhood knowing if someone is Republican or Democrat. Crat doesn't actually tell you anything about whether they have solar not. Okay so what does it tell you. What does it tell you about their behavior if they do have a solar whether Republican or Democrat if they have solar panels on the roof roof? It tells you that they're much more likely to participate in. This is true in both the Democratic and Republican primaries as well as in general elections so we find that that households with solar panels are about ten percentage points more likely to be active political participants in elections which is a really substantial angel gap and while part of that gap can be explained by a household level demographics for instance household income. We can't explain plane all of that variation chest by these demographics and so it really does seem like the types of people who are politically active are also the types of people adopting solar and that it suggests that there is a late into a coalition of Republicans and Democrats across the country. That are already out there who who might be mobilized level is to protect the clean energy wins. That have already happened or could support a sort of a deepening of the energy transition. Just to be clear. You're not saying that the act of putting a solar solar panel on your roof makes you more likely to be politically active. You're saying that whatever it is the causes people to be politically active also Inclines them to to put solar panels on the roof is that is that right. Yeah I mean the the study that we did right now. Chest tells us that there's a close association between the two behaviors. We're going to do some follow. Follow up work right now to understand if in how the act of adopting solar may be shifting your opinions and your preferences and your attitudes over time and so I. I think that's a really interesting question that our research raises and that sort of the next step mayor Pete. We understand is surging in the in the Iowa. Polls how how would you compare his climate plan to the plans. That other candidates have put forward. It has some important differences in approach approach and to for instance the Sanders or Warren plans. But it also has a few interesting strength that Buddha judge plans really leans into that some of the other plans are more vague about it. So I think there's a few ways to contrast them so unlike the green new you deal Plans that both Sanders and Warren have really promoted that have a strong focus. On linking the problems of inequality inequality with climate reforms mayor. Buddha judge has a climate plan that is very focused on the climate crisis as a standalone issue. You and is not trying to make links between climate reforms and other types of social and economic policy making. I think that there's a lot of things that are really interesting about it. I think it has a reasonably ambitious energy. Target renewable energy target with this interim target for twenty twenty-five it has one of the more developed plans to really think creatively about what technologies we need to invest in to innovate. You know this is a plan that talks about technology. Direct air capture to actually remove carbon from the atmosphere which is quite necessary. This is also a plan that has a fully realized carbon price in it It's a proposed as a carbon price and dividend policy where Americans will receive the revenues from a carbon price back as rebates. But here's my question for you. How in the world at a time? When the Democratic voters are saying more and more more more climate change does Mir p differentiate himself from the rest of the field when his plants are considerably smaller at least dollar wise than the rest of the field? I guess I think that his plan is quite ambitious and a bunch of dimensions. I think that where where it lags behind. Some of the other candidates is it doesn't appear to have as much money for deployment. It doesn't imagine the same degree of wide-scale spending and investment in decarbonisation. And I think that that type of really aggressive spending and really aggressive government investment other candidates have argued is critical if we're going to meet the climate science targets that we need to meet and so I think that as Buddha judge rises in the polls. He's going to need to do more to communicate how his plan is responding to the scale of the climate crisis and really offering bring a solution to the climate problem that that meets the climate science where it is and provide a credible pathway to keep the global climate stable. But I do think that there's lots of interesting components that the plan and it's a serious plan. It's a window dressing plan that we've seen from from some of the other candidates and you know. I thought for a while though that the difference among the candidates on climate change isn't so much the the specific details they put in their plants but the priority that the assigned to the issue. So that you know the question in my mind has been which of these candidates is going to make climate front and center issue if he or she is elected in November twenty twenty. I think it's a really good question. And I think Eh to answer the question we also have to think about who has a realistic and practical plan for how to actually pass the type of legislation and regulations. That are GONNA be necessary. I'm having a great plan. Is One thing and another thing is who actually has the strategy necessary in the tactics necessary to to get something done. I actually put a lot of stock in who is willing to embrace a phase out of the filibuster. I think that that's not who else. Yeah well among the major ones Warren Also Montana Governor Steve Bullock is willing to do it and of the of the major candidates most are hedging or saying they'll explore it it certainly mayor. Buddha judge said that he'd be open up into thinking about it sanders has been surprisingly resistant to the idea for reasons that I don't entirely understand but I think that to pass a major climate reform package in the Senate will almost certainly require removing the filibuster. I don't think they're sixty votes. I think there could be fifty one votes and to me. That is the the first the first thing I look at in terms of. Who's being serious and who might actually get something done? That's really fascinating stuff. Professor really appreciate your coming on and discussing your work with us.

"Carlos Cabello former Congressman representing presenting Florida's twenty sixth district from two thousand fifteen to two thousand nineteen co-founder of Cerro Communications and public relations firm. And and a distinguished visiting fellow at Columbia's Center on Global Energy Policy. I have to say that I'm I'm sorry. You lost in November. It must be intriguing to think about what it would be like for yourself to be in the in the congress at this point as a Republican. Well it it would be a very difficult gold position. I think you've seen just in the last few weeks that Republicans seem to have two options politically at least a the moral questions assigned but politically Republicans have the option of defending the president and of course he demands ends absolute loyalty or leaving the Party and that's a decision that Justin Amash had to make a few weeks back So it's a difficult perfect time to be in politics in our country. I think it's a very difficult time to be a Republican in Congress. Congress this is Jeff says but I just wanted to jump in for just a second Great to talk to you. I'm just curious about your take about younger Republican voters. Because I know you've seen the same polls that we've all seen younger. Republican voters care care quite a lot about climate change and they feel like the parties in the wrong place in the issue. How does the Republican Party deal with this? Because if they don't I'm afraid this may be a signature issue that it causes irreparable harm to the party. Certainly and yes. All Young voters pretty much cared deeply about this issue and and young Republicans are not an exception and the good news is that Republicans in Congress are starting to wake up to this reality so I tell people that. I'm feeling optimistic these days because I have the perspective of having arrived in Congress and Having found almost no republicans willing to engage on this issue by the time I left Congress at the beginning of this year we had forty forty five house. Republicans on the record having joined the climate solutions caucus so we really became a force and fast forward into today some ten months into the House Democratic majority and you have senior Republicans in the house talking about climate change. And just just a few weeks ago. Kevin McCarthy the House Republican leaders. Someone who while I was in Congress never never went out of his way to address or discuss this issue stated stated that because young voters care about this issue that House Republicans would be crafting package of bills to address climate. I changed you know. There's no question that what you're telling us. This is recent for hope on this issue but it's also true that as we're seeing on a daily basis your party. The Republican Party is very much under the thumb of Donald J trump. And as far as I know he's never changed his opinion. The climate a change is a Chinese hoax designed to undermine American industrial strength. So what basis do we have to be hopeful about the trajectory of the Republican Party on the climate issue when trump is so determined to keep it off the radar screen off the table. Well the fact that this is all happening wild. Donald trump is president president. Someone who has been reckless irresponsible. Not just in In his rhetoric but in his policies when it comes to climate and the environment and the fact that Republicans are taking these steps making these declarations Senate Republicans Senator Mike Braun has led a small group of Senate Senate Republicans joining Democrats to form. The first ever bipartisan caucus designed to address climate change in the United States Senate. All of this is happening while Donald Trump keeps tweeting out the same nonsense so it's obvious obvious that Republicans understand that they have delete on this issue and that they're willing to in a way confront the president by countering his rhetoric and his policies With these latest moves to build the bipartisan artisan consensus. That's necessary for meaningful climate action. Is it possible that you know the Republican Party will ever actually at least some aspect of the Republican Party swinging behind a carbon in price. So like I tell people. We don't really need Republicans to embrace or to be enthusiastic about pricing carbon. We'd seen enough Republicans not even all not really even half of them to accept a price on carbon as a broader policy solutions a a lot of Republicans are congregating around the idea of massive investments in research and development To try to trigger the types of technical advancements that could help solve for climate change perhaps in a less costly win away that involves less sacrifice in terms of a modifying Our economy and our habits I think a lot of Democrats would be willing to support a massive Manhattan Project Type Initiative to address this issue and perhaps that can be accompanied by a modest price on carbon. Can I just say congressman. How excited I think lots of people in this country would be for that approach that you just laid out? We just released poll Georgia. That shows overwhelming support. Like three quarters of the people would love to see innovation around renewable energy. If the the Republican Party were willing to entertain that notion I agree and I can't predict the future but I can tell you that the current is pushing people in that direction..
