The Brainwashing of my Dad (with documentary filmmaker Jen Senko)
"My mother thinks that rush limbaugh. Yoda you know what? Saying? She's always saying well, rush limbaugh says. Our rush had a great monologue. It was just on point. Oh it's he so tuned into the Culture Rush Limbaugh g listen to rush limbaugh the other day and of course I know I don't listen to rush limbaugh. I did fifteen years ago. You know I was a Ditto head actually read for you a chapter about right wing radio on the broadcast I read it out of my book couple of weeks ago. But I wanted to come back to this because I feel like it's Really been on my mind and it's hugely relevant in today's culture. We've got a whole group this graphic of these pulpit pounding Bible Banging, rush, limbaugh right, Wing Radio Listening Evangelical 's right the Christian Nationalists and they're screaming the name of God is they use their religion just to be Shitty to other people. May I've noticed that about a lot of these guys limbaugh Michael Savage, etc. they're just nasty people. They are always being cruel to other people there pushing buttons because they can. They're stoking the fires of outrage and they sit back and bask in the ratings and the advertising dollars and. All the way to the bank. There's this I think it's a myth that rush limbaugh is himself a Christian. I. Know He likes to speak the language of Christianity. I'm not convinced the Guy Cares at all about the Bible or religion of any kind and back I'd love to sit them down and give him like a sixty second Bible quiz just to see how much he really in fact I'd like to sit most the evangelical 's in power. Donald. Trump I'd like to give him a Bible quiz. Let's just sit down and let me quiz you for a couple minutes. Betsy Devos loved to talk to her Ben Carson Rick, Perry all these people in government are banging their. Bibles I would love to sit them down and asked him basic questions about their faith. But that's a whole other conversation. Today's conversation is with the director and producer of a film called the brainwashing of my dad, an ambassador father who SORTA got sucked in to this rush limbaugh right-wing Radio Christian, nation, kind of narrative focusing at the very least and narrative that sort of others, non-christians, sort of sets them off in their own little box while the moral righteous people are sitting over here. Now, the film itself is not new. It's been out for a few years but I referenced it in my book and I just it's been on my mind because. There is so much of this going on and right-wing radio. I don't think it's ever been more popular. There's video of this conversation. I am going to play some clips from the documentary during the broadcast. These clips add a few extra layers. So you can kind of hear the angle that she's taking Gen Sankoh Director of the documentary film, The brainwashing of my dad. So glad you're here. Hi Seth, it's nice to be here. Give me like a resume real fast the types of work that you've done before the brainwashing my dad. Sure. Will I started out as an artist and a painter? But then I felt like I wanted to reach a wider audience and I just started making films but they were always sociopolitical. The Sue. The first one was roadmap warrior women about really independent women that I met out west and then the second was was. co-director with fury derosa the vanishing city. About the lecture vacation of New York City. But also how it's happening throughout the world and cities coming less affordable and right now I'm writing a book. Also called the brainwashing of my dad. Got Picked up by source books so I can always tell you more. Fun, I mean. Let's go back to your dad. You didn't grow walk in this sort of right wing I mean I know limbaugh started back in the eighties but I mean, you didn't come from that sort of hardcore conservatism. nope. Not at all my parents were what I guess. I would describe as very liberal, very open minded. They were Kennedy Democrats and they were also like FDR Democrats they came from the depression. So FDR them was a hero who pull them out of the depression they most remembered hoover and felt like he didn't do anything but they were really enthusiastic about. And I think they were quite devastated. When he was assassinated. But yeah, they were they were I would actually list describe them as hippies before hippies same. We're very open minded My Dad especially loved talking all different kinds of people very non judgmental. As you probably saw the film, you know one time in this is in the sixties. We came out and port. Authority. We're visiting New York. For the day and there was a a black homeless man and she US Monday for some money my dad called him Sir had a conversation with them. And gave them like a couple of coins or two, but you know so they kind of thing made an impression on me that. You know accept all people and jobs. You know he wasn't for they were judgmental national change later.
Mirati to Rival Amgen in Solid Tumors
"So to start I wanNA talk about exact sciences ticker symbol e x a s, and they are now trading at around twelve billion dollar market cap, and what they announced is liquid biopsy testing data in six different cancer types showing a sensitivity of eighty six percent and a specificity of ninety five percent, and they did kind of a grab bag of cancer types. We have lung ovarian, liver pancreatic, and Alpha Jill. And so I did video on exact sciences quite a while ago I thought their evaluation was a little bit toppy back then and was waiting for dipped to buy, and that's what I did during the Cova crisis I took a small position and then I sold just recently at around ninety four and I think is trading just over one hundred dollars right now but this. Is Nice to see them kind of moving into new areas because I think one of the things that they're struggling with is leaning on their old testing kit the colours guard while all these other companies are trying to get into things like liquid biopsy, which it's going to be a real game changer in the space. Once these treatments get validated and approved by the FDA. Now. They're not alone doing this exact sciences is kind of just finally getting into this because other big players like alumina through grail they just acquired this private company called grail officially officially. We've garden health personalisation of been floating around and invitations. Well, who just acquired archer DSL there's a lot of companies in the space, but exact scientists has shown some pretty good success in their previous testing kits. So it just makes sense them to jump into this new area and be a good competitor. So I think right now probably a little bit toppy with the price around one hundred but I'm pretty pleased with the small profit. I made given the number shares that I have. So that's exact sciences. Want to move now into regeneration ticker symbol. And they're trading at a sixty billion dollar market CAP. I did a video on them also a few months ago, looking at kind of their staples in terms of the different products that they offer and I concluded that they were relatively over-valued back. Then I think now also a little bit overvalued, but it does depend on how well their product. So and the kind of revenue they can bring in obviously but the news that we heard is that they released data on their antibody cocktail for covid nineteen. and. What we saw is that it reduced viral loads and symptoms versus placebo in non. Patients who are infected with SARS co to and what they shared our results from initial cohort of two hundred and seventy five patients, and they also have nine hundred or more patients enrolled. So this is kind of a preliminary analysis that they're showing US and they've called it a phase one, two, three trials. So they're doing the PK the safety along with the efficacy and other sorts of secondary outcomes all at once and when I look through their stuff, they started off by kind of categorizing patients based. On Sarah Negative or zero positive and I, think it's important that they do this because we're looking at a treatment for covid nineteen and if people are already sero-positive in their bodies, already mounted an antibody response in order to bring down viral loads. So what regeneration is trying to pose here is that the negative patients which means they have not mount that antibody response have significantly higher viral load and they make a better target for most treatments probably also their antibody cocktail that they're gonNA share data with. So. Then the data that they show here shows a range of efficacy based off of viral load. So we have tended the power of four copies, parallel all the way to tend to the seven copies personnel. So quite a big range in viral load here and I just blew this up on the screen. What we're seeing is that at the higher viral load, the treatment and there two different doses here in the green and the red line, we see that much more dramatic decrease in the amount of viral load in. These patients and it does kind of make sense because if your body's already mounted an antibody response, the window of efficacy is just going to be a bit smaller than if it's before the at which your body's manning response. So I think for these patients, it's definitely positive data. They also looked at other other metrics as well and I'm not going to get into everything but they did look at a day to alleviation of symptoms and they looked at the overall population of patients. It's the difference of nine with Placebo. To between six and eight, depending on the dose that they gave the antibody cocktail with the negative group alone, the placebo was thirteen days and then the low and high dose was six and eight respectively. So obviously a big difference when it comes to whether or not the patient is zero negative or positive. So that's probably going to inform the FDA when it comes to approving the drug or giving some kind of guidance on which patients should take the drug and who are likely to see more positive outcomes from that. So overall. I think it's good. It gets a step ahead of the Gilead data where I don't think we've even seen a placebo group yet. So it's nice to see regenerate actually do this placebo controlled trial. We can see whether or not there is efficacy and I, look forward to seeing the rest of the data I'm not if this merits taking a position regenerate here given that they're such a large company already and they have so many different assets that are I would say more likely to contribute to their bottom line. This doesn't entice me to take a position, but it's nice to see that we're getting all these therapies are starting to see vaccine data, and this just makes me feel better in general that we're going to move towards being able to treat this disease and hopefully get out from under this and then Kinda recover with the economy. With that, let's talk about the main story for today, and that is morality Therapeutics Ticker Symbol M rt ex, and they're trading at a price of one sixty, two point zero five per share giving them a market cap of seven point two, billion dollars. Their Q. Two, twenty, twenty, net loss was eighty, three, million dollars, and this represents an eighty percent increase year over year there their q two net current cash is six, hundred million dollars giving them a runway of about until twenty twenty two I would say but let's also be careful that if they see positive data. This year or next year is a good chance that they're going to raise again. And what Morad is trying to do is develop targeted cancer treatments and they're specifically looking at solid tumors and even more specific than that are K. Rasa inhibitors, and so they have to compounds Marta six, eight, four, nine, and x, one, three, three. They're also looking at checkpoint inhibitor resistance with their compound sicher Vance it, and I'll talk about that in a bit later. To start though we gotta talk about chaos and the reason why this is so important is that chaos mutations are present in a large population of cancer patients. The first thing it's important to note is that chaos is pretty ubiquitous. It's a critical part of the map kinase signaling pathway, and this is very important in basically every single cell. This pathways involved in Cell Proliferation Cell Survival had differentiation here. There's a whole bunch of other stuff and it makes a little bit confusing because it is involved in. So many different pathways that if you were just to inhibit this molecule non specifically, you're likely to see significant side effects with patients. It's for this reason that it's important that we can come up with a targeted therapy that will only target cells that have a mutation in chaos rather than the healthy normal. KS. To talk a little bit more about its function, it works as a GT as and what this means is that it takes a molecule GDP converts it to GDP using that phosphate group to continue the signaling pathway. The next step is Raff or something like that mutations in. A company twenty, one point, six percent of all human cancers, and then I have here that chaos the predominant or exclusive Rask's mutated in three of the top four neoplasms that account for cancer deaths in the US lung colon and pancreatic. Cancer.

How do you know when it's safe to break the rules?
"For, this week's episode I want to talk about breaking the rules. Two weeks ago on thoughtful Thursday I talked about looking at the spirit of the rules instead of the words themselves when deciding whether or not a rule can be broken. And I received a lot of great feedback from listeners who said they struggle with that all the time. Many people also wondered whether there was any sort of litmus test. I use when determining whether or not a rule could be bent a little or broken completely or not at all. As I really thought about this one thing specifically came to mind. I have to really know a rule well, what went into its creation? What problem was trying to solve who was expected to follow it and how related rules interacted with it before you feel confident and making the decision to break it. Let, me give you an example. Why. Live the speed limit on the freeway sixty, five miles an hour and most places. I know this and typically when I get on the freeway, I hang out around seventy one to seventy, two miles an hour. I've done this next police officers who didn't even give me a second look. My breaking the law when I do this. Sure. But it's rooted in a strong knowledge of what the law is why that law is there and designed to protect and Hummus follow it. If I were taking a road trip to a place. I'd never been to before I found myself on the freeway. I'd immediately look around for speed limit signs. If. You weren't visible. If there weren't other cars, I can emulate when making a decision on correct speed. The last thing I do is drive seventy one or seventy two miles an hour instead of hang out around sixty two maybe for a few minutes to confirm the actual speed limit act accordingly. As articulate this, you're probably thinking yeah, of course obviously. But think about what you're actually doing. You're saying yourself I don't know what the rules are so i. need to play it safe until I do know. I've been on roads that look exactly like the ones near my house with a speed limit sixty, five miles an hour, but the limit was actually seventy five or eighty or fifty five. So if I just arbitrarily decide to go seventy two and then find out in a place where the is fifty five that mistaken hundred costing me a ticket. On. The same token another time when I assume it's safe to bend the rules a little only to find out later that there was context that was missing. Context would have led me to a different decision. So, how does the leader get good at this? How do they make sure they aren't missing any context so that decisions to bend or break rules and have been good decisions. The only answer is time. REPETITION. Leading in that type of situation with strict adherence to the rules for as many times as it takes to develop that context. And this can be hard to do. especially if you're like me and your default is want to challenge rules don't make sense. If you find yourself in a situation like this resist the temptation. If, for no other reason than simply to pay homage to the leaders who came before you and who undoubtedly had reasons for creating whatever rule is in question. It could be the things have changed and whatever lead those leaders to create. This rule is no longer a factor which means you can feel safe and breaking it or it could be this rules very necessary and you won't even know why until you seek those answers. But if you WANNA avoid the ticket start by playing it safe. You'll be glad you did.
Accumulation Time For Bitcoin
"We'll help you find a good a good start to your day. Look end of the month remains, we can have a look at the monthly charges and how chats about how I look. We have some good moves in the market of the non also he's thirty those in just. One Mind Bitcoin let me talk to the monthly. Well, let's just get there. That guy. South. Looks pretty good. Yeah.

How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?
"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the
Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.
Dr. Richard A. Van Etten: Cancer
"Please welcome to the show Dr Rick van how you doing. Thank you very much Andrew and Brittany I greatly appreciate the opportunity to be able to come and talk to your talk your listeners today. Yeah. Well, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to us. So we're GONNA be talking about obviously cancer and how you can prevent cancer do your best to prevent it. But as I mentioned in the Intro, most likely someone knows someone who's had cancer or they've had cancer themselves even it's pretty it seems like it's touches a lot of people but can you kind of tell me how many people does cancer impact on a yearly basis? Well. Thank you for the question Andrew. The lifetime risk of getting cancer is approaching thirty eight or thirty, nine percent. So more than one in three Americans will get cancer during their lifetime. So that explains what you said that basically almost everybody is either been personally. Involved with cancer knows a close family member or a loved one that's been stricken by cancer. So some of the statistics nationwide in the United States, there's about one point seven million people diagnosed each year with cancer. And they'll be about unfortunately six hundred thousand Americans will die every year of cancer. Here in Orange County it's interesting that cancer has overtaken cart diseases, the number one killer, and as soon gonNA happen nationwide. So a very very. Prevalent disease what kind of has led to what's led to that trajectory? Why is that happening? Well, actually the the the death rate from cancer has been falling and it's been falling significantly over the past fifteen or twenty years, which is a success basically for the research that's gone into it through the National Cancer Institute and other mechanisms. But the fact that cancer is now the number one killer has actually also reflected progress in cardiovascular disease. So doing which used to be the number one killer. So we're doing a better job at preventing. Heart disease through the things that you know about treatment of the risk factors like high lipids, blood pressure, diabetes et CETERA. Right? Interesting. Okay. All right. So we got some work to do on the cancer and Kinda catch up. And, that generally, like I mentioned usually happens through education funding, which we'll talk about in a little bit What types of cancers are the most prevalent today? I know that you specialize are a believe in like blood cancers by what are the most prevalent that people run into so we can talk both about incidents, which is the new diagnosis that we have each year and prevalence, which is the number of people living with the disease at any given time. But the top four in both categories are pretty similar. So there's breast cancer which obviously predominantly affects women but also can affect men. Then there's lung cancer there's prostate cancer which obviously is a male cancer and the last one is colorectal cancer. Those are the big four. Close on their heels are diseases like skin cancer and melanoma that's particularly relevant for Orange County where we have two hundred and eight, hundred, ninety days per year rate. And after that come some blood cancers that I specialize in, which is mainly things like leukemia lymphoma and Myeloma Okay. What kind of leads to these types of cancers occurring out of those top four that you mentioned, what? What's the biggest contributor to people getting? Is it? Is it just genetics you got bad genes or something in your lifestyle or in your the world around you I guess causing it. So they're. Probably, equal contributions both from genetics and from lifestyle. Okay. When I say genetics I mean the cancer is principally in the opinion of a lot of primarily a genetic disease in the cancer cells have acquired mutations that contribute to their malignant or cancerous phenotype, their ability to grow and attack the body. Most of those mutations are acquired in other words they happened just within the cancer cell and they're not inherited. So you don't get them from your mother or your father. Now there are exceptions there are well defined cancer susceptibility syndromes the most the one that may be most familiar to your listeners is the bracket jeans Brca which segregating families particularly people, of Ashkenazi, Jewish descent that are inherited either from your mother or your father, and greatly increase your risk for developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer so that the risk for women who doesn't ever bracken gene mutation is about one about eleven percent or one in nine during your lifetime. If you inherit one of these genes, it's virtually almost everybody will get breast cancer ninety percent risk over your lifetime. So, this cancer susceptibility syndromes are very important the need. For instance when there's a new cancer diagnosis, you need to take a careful family history and in some cases be referred to a genetic counselor to determine whether testing family members is indicated. Yeah. Well, that's interesting that you bring that up because my wife actually we went through that process, and so she was found her mother had breast cancer and through that process they found out, she had the bracket gene Brac to and then and so my wife decided because they kind of give you choice like do you want to get screened? Do you not like you kind of have? Do you want to know more or or like not and stay naive to it I guess and so what I've discovered, we went through it and is interesting out of the split my wife got it and her sister didn't so the fifty, fifty there and. It. Seems like. It's I think my opinion is it's good to know because now they're just more aggressively screening her and is that typically the case when you find out about something like that, you're more your screened even more regularly than the average person should be. That's right. A change basically changes the surveillance. In it not to make it more complicated. But there are some genes like the broncos where the penetrates which means that the chance of actually getting breast cancer. If you have the have, the mutation is very high I think there it's pretty straightforward to decide whether to get screened. Right. There are other mutations that can be inherited that don't increase the risk that much increase it above the background, but it's not nearly as high and there it's more complicated to try to decide what to do about that. But. My advice to your listeners is to seek the advice of a NCI cancer center in a a qualified genetic counselor. Those are the people best qualified to help guide you through that decision making process right? Right. When you're going through like you said they ramp up the screening process if you had the genetic mutation but how does how did we get to discovering these genetic mutations I? It sounds like you kind of have somewhat of a background like you discovered or help discover this protein that was causing leukemia right and. How does that process even work? How do we make these discoveries? How do you make these? Discovery I was involved in is one of these acquired mutations not inherited, but it came about from studies done many many years ago actually nineteen sixty that showed that patients with this particular type of leukemia had an abnormal chromosome in their blood cells. And when to make a very long story short when that was tracked down, it was shown that the chromosome was actually an a Barrett. That was acquired in these cancer cells that lead to the expression of this abnormal protein. And that protein. Hasn't is an enzyme which means that it has a ability to catalyze chemical reactions. Okay and that particular reaction stimulated the growth of those blood cancer cells. So. That led a drug company, which is today is no artis to develop us a drug a small molecule inhibited the action of that protein. And that That drug which has the trade name GLIVEC revolutionized the treatment of that leukemia so that in the past everybody died of this leukemia, unless you had a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Today everybody takes a drug likely. And most people go into remission and when they do, they have normal age adjusted life expectancy. That's example would that's Therapy likely that can do to cancer right? So does this all come from these discoveries? Does it come from just? Tons of data over decades like this one you're saying, it came from research started in the sixties and this didn't have until the early nineties. Is that right or wealth the the The structure of the protein was discovered. I'm saying Circa Nineteen, eighty-four which I got involved. The drug development efforts took place shortly thereafter I'm and the was FDA approved in two thousand one. So it's been on the market now for almost nineteen years I and there are many many other efforts in other cancers that are parallel parallel that. The thing that's happened today is because of our new technology and the genomics and the ability to determine, for instance, the genome sequence very quickly that's accelerated the progress that we can make. So what took forty years from sixty two to the drug being approved now can be done in a couple of years. Wow. Everything's happening much much faster. That's awesome. That's great news for those of US living right now.
Bitcoin Dominance Increases
"Trading. Wise. It nothing really neglected the markets and the felt damn good. Every day just tighten awakened away from from the shots was read honest refreshing thing and it's brought me into position now feel better about looking at once again. Yet. So it's been good as far as the mangams consent of talking about eleven thousand, one, hundred, twenty dollar mock around that region, which was the also pull level as before the the full bitcoin fell and you know we we have found resisted that level. We bounced off it on. What was Saturday. Pullback yesterday we're up point four, percent yesterday were down one point five percent. We actually close the wake up five point, seven percent, which is a pretty good week following on that cradle break it's a, it's a good week No complaints from me at all the markets have been a little bit slow for the traders. There was a couple of good trades on the I think it was five, four hour las not. The showed up It was at six PM Bob Wilson. Wasn't. So I wasn't there They look quite good. Right now, I was sitting at ten, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two save push up through the high that was created on. Saturday. Leading thousand, one, hundred, ninety, five. Thousand two hundred, we got three there, and hopefully we can say goodbye to that resistance and get a good run on get some good trends BEC into play because it has been a little bit. LASTA over the last few days and that market hasn't done a great deal of moving locker said ten, thousand, nine, hundred, and sixty one point four percent rotten. Now, a theory is still very sought look at realistically needs to get about four hundred. That's the point where I think we might see some is there on a theory of the weekly. Dig Close, up not by much one point, two percent were up twenty, three, percent three, hundred, seventy, three dollars raw now little market. I'm really jumping up and down to try to the nor is exa pay, which is currently twenty four point six cents flat. On yesterday thus far the weekly Kennel it did close up. Enclosed at one point, eight percent. So a little a little pop of wind to the upside, their daily trendies office it's very average. It's not. You know it's not exciting me in any. Sense, of the word. Bitcoin. Cash was down yesterday solid three percent closing at two twenty, six, twenty interestingly the weekly a dig close up. But again, only one point eight percent against showing that bitcoin dominance is starting to return to be the perfect storm that potentially that will speak to you about in just a moment. Bitcoin to Bitcoin cash to twenty, seven, seventy five, which represents a point senator sending so far on the dye lot finished the week actually down, it was down two point, two percent it closed at forty seven dollars and nine saints. It's forty, seven and fourteen, which represents a point one percent. It looks very wake at the moment that thanks said you could very easily push up. It's GonNa get three, fifty, one dollars thirty four to get that trend looking. The why? Though I want to look full for to be essentially reasonable for me? It's not there yet, and until we do get there until, of course, we full further It's not trying to make base again bit of the of a good full yesterday I fought the sent Dan it's a market that I'm watching this show is it was down lost weight five point seven, three percents. Well, it closed one hundred and fifty three dollars a ninety, six percents and look. It it's in a daily death. It is a daily down trend is a weekly momentum down the to our. Quite, good there on faith cradles physically city. They're just waiting to see how that goes throughout the and save account. Get anything. It's a one, fifty, four, fifty, five, point four. percent. Today. Cod Donald. Love to see a low coming here in a push up through that ten cent motte to get daily trim back into. The swing thing. It's not done that It was Dallas weeks pretty heavily six percent Pretty heavily considering it was a sly wake at sitting I point nonsense rotten now bonnets. Lost Weight was down fourteen point nine, four percent closing at twenty, six, thirty full. It's on the twenty six, thirty four right now which oversees. On, the Diet and yesterday down three point three percent bonds will sort of get his engine running again on. I'm sure probably will if we get a bull market but there's nothing that fraternity for me at this time of also very flat the weight that was was pretty average. It was down two percent very, very little volatility on a US at the moment and Sorta does it. Will Spike that way its up point four percent rotten out to sixty three cents. But Very Saad wise.

Why delaying social security payments is so important
"So one note. Clark. His talk for years. About. Why it makes sense for people approaching. Retirement age to way as long as they possibly can taking social security. and. In large numbers, people take social security at age sixty two. Thinking Hey. I got to get the money while I can don't know how long I'm GonNa live Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. And what happens is that you have been set yourself up. To, have a smaller social security payment for the rest of your life, which is fine. If you don't live as long as he might like but gets ugly if you live longer than you would expect. Because what you get up front is a much smaller monthly payment. When you take it at sixty, two or sixty, three, whatever. And then the rest of the way all your adjustments happen off that much lower base and that's what I've talked about through the years and been people been very unhappy with me obviously because almost nobody waits till the last possible date. which is age seventy but. Right now. With what's going on with interest rates and the economy? Waiting to take social security. Is the most brilliant idea. It's ever been unless you know you're. Not. In. Good health. Your life span expectation is very short. You WanNa wait as long as you can. Between a sixty, two and seventy as you possibly can. Here's why. With interest rates as low as they are right now. You would be better off. Delaying Social Security. In spending whatever money you have in savings. Then it would be to preserve those savings. By taking social security early. The reason is, is that the increase you get? Every. Year you delay taking. Social Security. Is, so. Valuable. And is much more than the effective amount that your money can earn that you have right now in savings or CD's. Bit Is better for you to deplete. Some of those savings if you need to. Rather than an to go ahead and take. Social Security. Now. That is an additional. Factor. That makes the argument even stronger for delaying when you take social security because of the Federal Reserve artificially holding down interest rates. Now. I know that for the most part. Well nobody's really gonNA listen to me about this, but I can certainly try. Because the return you get. By waiting. Effectively the imputed return on your money. Is much higher than you're likely earning on your money right now particularly, if it's in savings or CD's with stocks, well, who knows In terms of what the return would be like over the years between a sixty to seventy by delaying social security though. It's a sure thing. And by the way, if you've already started taking payments sixty two and you say, why didn't tell me this before now? If you're early and doing so and you can afford to you can take money you do have earning basically nothing savings. Pay Back Social Security, what you've received. And then. Pick it back up later at a much larger benefit. That's a possible. Strategy, you could use to turn back the clock on having accepted social security at an early age.
Trump Administration to Ban TikTok and WeChat From U.S. App Stores
"I, know there were few couples looking to buy Tiktok away potentially save it I know November twelfth of the deadline for when. Coupled needs to have some sort of deal in place. What is the current situation right now? Well, until a couple days ago, the assumption was that Oracle had won the bidding war for Tiktok, and the way that it was gonna work was instead of a US company buying tiktok or a portion of tiktok in operating it in the United States what Oracle seem to offer was to be a quote technology. Partner, which seemed to mean that they would store the data from tiktok in the United States of United States citizens but it was never really sorted out. It wasn't made very public. So eventually, that seems to have fallen apart or it's possible that president trump just decided that wasn't enough and he wanted more assurances or he really wanted a an American company to take over Tiktok and he didn't get that so. After all that stuff happened, we saw the Chinese government start pushing back on these ideas and saying, well, we're not GonNa let you any other country by technology that is very unique to China Especially, the algorithms, right the way that they sort all these videos, which is really what tick talks flavor is. Right that's what makes it work, and as a result now, we're in this space where it seems like You know we've we've we've pulled the trigger or you know set off the new girl everyone WanNa call it and We are now at the point where. The unless there's a real deal that gets put in place it's over. Yeah this is the this is interesting and surprising. Situation Given that you know with had time we've had several weeks. This executive order was signed back in August and he was sort of a that deal would get done and Not tensions between kind of China and the US is sort of escalated to the point where like now like millions of tiktok users are probably going to be out of luck, right? Yeah and there are a lot of people who are kind of winding up to be the next TIKTOK. which you know it's not there weren't people before trying to be tiktok races that Tiktok was in the right place at the right time and had the right branding to really take off. So Youtube has a new thing called shorts which is not about clothing. It's it's very similar. The short videos that you can watch tiktok mostly is fifteen sixty second videos. And, we also starting to see that from instagram. We're starting to see it from other apps like completely new social networks. I have no idea how it's going to play out right? Because it's really you know we're talking about a service that has more than two billion downloads over one hundred, million US users and. To do anything INCR- as a group is very hard right? That's why they tend to stick in their APP. So I I'm really I'm curious to see whether or not. They'll all kind of move mass to another social network yet and I know we we ignored mostly we chat. But which looks like it's not gonNA work after Sunday. It hasn't had the breakout success of. TIKTOK. But. There's. A sizable audience here in the US. For which at right? Yeah and also it's a it's a hugely popular APP. Overseas is very much like what happened when facebook bought WHATSAPP Apres a lot of people was What why is this worth nineteen billion dollars and then you know we started learning about how a outside the United States a WanNa people used what's APP because there were so many text message charges between different countries and in Europe with her a lot of countries in a small space that is really annoying. So that's what got people using it with we chat a lot of it is keeping in touch with family overseas. A lot of people in Asian countries tend to use a different social networks us whether it be line or we chat or we bow or you name it. And so a lot of people who come over here tend to sign up for those absolutely can keep in touch with family overseas because there is no facebook over there. So I have a feeling that they're gonNA probably find something different or they'll find a way around this right but it's it's GonNa be an interesting thing to
How Climate Migration Will Reshape America
"Joining me in the studio is collateral producer off multiple twenty, four hours the urban Est.. Calendar. Will Not so much first of all, what's going on in our cities but the possibility that people might not want to leave them very much anymore. Yes. This is a story quite a long read on the New York Times how climate migration will reshape America this is my Abram looks Tarkhan who is a senior environment reporter for Propublica and he has for the past two years are so been. Investigating exactly how climate will impact cities and countries around the world. Now, we do have a tendency to when we think about that to think you know about rising sea levels to think about other places, not the US but if there's anything that this recent fire season has showed that America will very much be defined by this I. Mean we don't even have enough time on this show. To go through everything he writes but I would like to highlight a few things If I may one of them is just how much Americans don associate climate migration are something that might happen to them. Now does a few pointers here of why that might one of the ones I found. My most fascinating is because it is a very rich country and it does sort of thing. I think that's the commonality those rich and fortunate places. They think bad things happen to other people exactly and it's like if I have money I can solve it. But you know we the fact that you know a lot of the houses in Florida for example, in a few decades will be below sea level is something that people know already but for example, one of the things that he. Highlights. Here is how across the United States around one, hundred, sixty, two, million people. So that's nearly one in every two people will most likely experience a decline in the quality of life of their environment, the environment throughout their lifetime, which is quite insane and by twenty seventy, the analysis on this report suggests that you know if carbon emissions are not cuts after continuous extreme levels at least four million Americans could find themselves living at the French. So places that are con- considered to be outside the ideal for human life. He poses a really interesting question, which is what is the cost of actually resisting this new climate reality and especially in an election year when you have one side completely advocating for some change in another complete denying it seems like a question that is more pertinent than ever is a very fascinating and daunting investigation that he he spoke to four dozen experts from economists, people that work demography climate scientists even insurance executives to realize all of this and I encourage everyone to look at it might be scary but. We need to be aware of
"sixty seconds" Discussed on Baseball Together Podcast
"Author is he wasn't starting the he wasn't ready to play wasn't playing in spring training. He wasn't getting ready for opening day and the now they give them all this time to get yielding and prepare and he sure did. Yeah, he took advantage of every minute of it. Yeah, and IT'S Far. Yeah, it's really cool I. Think it's cool. I think it's neat beyond just you know the Yankees fans and all that I think that there's been so much hype around Aaron Judge and you see him live up to that is really appealing. So which brings me to my next point if you consider Mike Trout in the same situation, lots of hype, lots of this edge extremely justified. Hype but he? This is interesting I. Got this on a headline today that was share. Mike, Trout has played seven times on his birthday. Seven Times on his birthday. Okay. And in five of those seven times, he has had a home run but I thought that was pretty cool. The fifth one in the series was today. So yeah, it's Friday the seventh and. And, I, thought that was that was pretty neat. We don't highlight home runs too often on this show because we think small ball is where it's at, but there are occasions where. there. The home run game is is very appealing. So those. Couple those I think Mike. Trout. The bomb honestly, and when he drops them, so drop some bombs steam better. UNLESS, it's Seattle which he seems to do listen all the time. I saw somebody s somebody comment. 'cause seriously he hit three home run like three or four home runs in three games because. I know I know for a fact, he to one game, but there is somebody is on instagram and somebody commented on one of the home runs on the on the MLB. Post said hey mariners fans calmed down. It's just pay back from US taking a beating all those years from Griffey. Oh well. All right. I can't set anymore. Because, there are certain places where player goes and you know he's going to go yard. It's Griffey, it was. Anaheim was one of one of the many places and for Trout Seattle happens to be one of the many places. So I guess just. Take it on the Chin and go little quid pro quo there. Yeah. Yeah. So, speaking to Mike. Trout. On his birthday. Let let's let's do a little bit of my trout? Trivia. K.. O Now Brig No. Brad. Pitt Times how many times? How many times do you think how many times do you think Mike Trout. has finished outside of the top five in the MVP voting. How many times has he been eligible? Like eight, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight times. Yes. Let that be the answer to my trivia question. Let's move on. So you think he's finished outside of the top. Don't know I wanted to know how many times he'd been eligible and then I nailed it and I think I should get off scot-free now. I see. Well the answer if the answer the question had been, how many times has he finished inside the top five, you'd be right with eight. Oh never finished outside the top five with MVP biting I.

"Want you to go to the next level as opposed to just throw you. Now I'M NOT GONNA lie. There have been times where I've woken up in the morning, and I'm just like what did I end up last night? Let me check what number okay I'm here. Goes in two minutes. I could get an a little bit in here early morning, but I have avoided doing that so far now. How did you get into horse-betting specifically growing up on Long Island, it's it's a natural deal like my Dad's godfather actually used to write for. The daily one of the daily Racing Form Publications, so made by dad was into it. We had a quarter quarterhorse track out in Suffolk County Meadows. That was very very close to where where I grew up. My aunt and uncle lived literally ten minutes from Don Park. So is a situation where we'RE GOING TO VISIT A. Enjoys Knuckle Bob Maybe, we met my dad and I. would mom off and Macabre. Come on data? We'd go to Belmont Iraq for a for a couple of races, but It's always been a part of my livelihood, and then obviously going down to Miami I mean we were in the heyday of when we had highly a- Gulfstream and call her something highly You take the. Metro rail to the trial. You pick the trial rail. That's a highly back in the day, but it's always been something. I've loved doing and It's funny because I. Do a regular spot with Alexander on visa and he. He's asked me from time-to-time to you can only bet on one sport. The rest of your life. on and everybody automatically assumes it's going to be called football by its horse racing. Horse Racing Worlds College football, and so it's been a fun just. To have a bunch of people like you, it others like reach out on twitter looking for racing advice. How do I bet this race? Who Do you like today? And, maybe there will be a little bit of a bump of. Some new fans biggest people have the opportunity to to watch way opponents during the stop. I will give you this as someone who's new to the horse betting. There is no better feeling than the horse. You need coming around that turn on the final stretch. When you see your horse like pulling up and you're like Oh my God. We're gaining. Let's go come on open them up. Open them up. And then he actually does what you say, and he's been I can't think of another another sport that gives you that feeling like obviously hitting bets is fun and other sports. Sports, but the feeling of your horse coming on just when you need him to. At the end of the race I have not felt that type of enjoyment in other sports betting. I think at least the way either the handicapped the racism in my reaction to that my emotional attachment. It's almost like a you're happy you won your bet would be. I'm happy because I saw the puzzle I like the daily racing form with all of the information the entry season. It is like trying to solve a puzzle. What's the flow of the race? Who's going to be the? Favourite that you WANNA beat. WHO'S THE PRICE HORSE? You WanNa be on the price worse, the trendy or that you want to avoid, and it's just a feeling of accomplishment a one. Your bet be figured it out and see you wind up getting the better the public as well so. You're right and on the flip side. There are those times where authorities they'll see. Oh, you'll see yours in and you think you got it like I did yesterday in the the turf for the big that Senate Anita whereby by Horace Basically didn't get to the whole in time at a pull up, and then was probably the best for, but had itself third, but that probably happens a lot more than the other instance where you wind up winning, but it still you get to be frustrated. You get to get to some four letter words and. Angry, you know what you like. Fifteen minutes ago. Let's go to the next race and move on the. Race's always. Quick side note and you just made me think of this yesterday. I was watching. Gulfstream and it was just the most torrential downpour. Like why are we running in this like I? Get it. They're trying to avoid lighting. You couldn't even see the screen on TV, Gee. I saw the screen and I. Am not even going to bother handicapping in this car today and then. Go just kind of going through the car like wonder and I see their. Couple thirty. Dollar worse than that newest. Real price horses yesterday so out. That's what I kick myself and I'm like maybe I should look. At Gulfstream today. Maybe there were just people that handicapped off the morning line that can racist might have been still on the Turkey. You need to remember right now. Because nobody's there and you're getting so many people betting on this for the first time. They don't necessarily know what a what a main track only orces war navy, that, of course it might have been entered for the turps still hasn't dirt. Breeding could handle the all tracks. All because it. Even myself attacks, I make mistakes. Don't kind of follow through the process and go through with it, and maybe off money yesterday, but I do that now. I WanNa talk just general strategy here and I want to kind of aim towards the casual better, because not everybody is going to be doing a deep dive, and if you're talking to someone who's Kinda of like me, just wants to get into wants to have fun with wants to win a little bit of money.

"That's what made it so exciting but it wasn't likely and it never did happen at least not in our case nobody ever got hurt or crashed or died or anything like that but we did piss a lot of people off routinely when we would do this and i'd say we probably did this i twenty different nights usually you have to do at night because you don't wanna be seen in at night when you're this age i'm talking like nine pm you know what i'm saying it's dark but it's not a late and routinely when we would do this like an angry ass man with slam on his brakes and take off running after we'd have to flee like a block or two away just throw them off the scent so they would never discover where johnny lived it was so much fun it was so fucking stupid as a result because i participated in this prank if this ever happens to me i'll just at the tip my cap untangled string and go on down the road cora's karma the game is the game in everybody knows if you're going to be a player in this coat can print game you you accept the risks that come with his gangster as life weird prank i i don't know if this was a widespread thing or if it was just like me and my boys did this we ended up doing it later with other friends too but johnny was like the originator so he deserves the credit and to be a part of the story but i i don't know it was just i was thinking about the other day how insane in stupid this was and i was like i gotta talk about this on the pot mike you ever heard of this i've heard of this prank i've never seen it accomplished i've sort of it's like one that i've heard rumors about when i was kid i never actually saw it happen it's understood it to be honest with you it's very i was under the impression that like you would stop the car the car would be you know damaged but this is pretty harmless it could be damaged is the thing if things go wrong what if someone was on a motorcycle see that's the kind of thing i don't have the answer to but it seems like that would be problematic it was kinda like fishing in that not everyone who drove by would get caught right so you'd have to go set it back up again because if they hit it like and it just went under the wheels and the wheels didn't catch it and pull it up into the car whatever that just run it over and keep going they would never know anything was ever there sometimes it would hit the like you know if it was a low car would hit too high up on the bumper in like slide over the top and pull the cans out from the bushes but the car wouldn't drag them things like that so there was like an element of you know having to succeed here as well but all in all just extremely silly and that's a shitty thing i did as a kid i've got a quick shitty thing i did yes we could do this you know i'm sure i could do several of these but the biggest one we would do is around october we had one friend with truck who has now a reputable local business owner i will not mention him or his establishment but we would just drive around stealing pumpkins from nice neighborhood this is so shitty really is so shitty and then like if there was a girl we liked or if there was someone who had crossed us for some reason or just randomly who we would smash ross you not just smashing like oh yeah hey that person has to pumpkins on the front porch lescoe smash them like we would pull up and smash like twenty or thirty on their front yard oh my god real bad boyz shit yeah i mean like we would still every pumpkin from tarrytown we just drive around tarrytown in the in the middle of the day that was what was more fun and just toss them the back of a truck and then at night we'd come and just smash it's just it's shit head move i'll never understand what it is about being a little kid that makes you wanna do shit like this but it's like something in your core being like you need to go experiment.

"Shitty things we did as kids so when i was a little kid sometimes i did get into mischief we all did one particularly shitty thing i did when i was a little kid i don't even know what this is called so i'm just gonna explain it i don't know if there's a name for it if there is please someone let me know after the fact but i had a buddy we'll call him johnny who lived in the tanglewood area of houston great neighborhood very nice houses mostly rich people it's a step down from river oaks so it's not the wealthiest people in houston but they're rich people you got to have money to afford to live and tanglewood we were in middle school probably around eighth grade seventh or eighth grade when somehow some way we got introduced to this prank and i don't know where it originated this was pre internet so it was one of those i mean pre internet like i think the internet existed but it was in its infancy it wasn't like you could just hop on google and google pranks or some shit or maybe you could have i don't fucking know but it was one of those things where i'm pretty sure somebody must have heard about this through an older brother or some shit like that it just got spread around word of mouth and what we would do is take a long piece of string like long enough to reach from one side of the street of his that his house was on to the other and then a little further so like over thirty feet long and we would tie somewhere between five and ten empty coke cans or beer cans or whatever aluminum cans we could find to both ends of this string we would set these aluminum cans up in a way that would get the string taut with the goal of it being taught about car axle high like in two different bushes ideally like in one bush on one side of the street in another bush on the other side of the street and then we would hide like in a tree or in another bush or whatever you should be starting to piece this together by now the goal was to set this up like a trap so that a passing car would get the string caught up between the bumper and the axles or wheel wells or whatever i'm not a fucking car mechanic and the car would drag the like ten to twenty aluminum cans down the street which would obviously make an extremely loud noise and scare the shit out of the driver who would obviously eventually stop and before to take the time to untangle this ungodly mess of trash from their car now i know what you're thinking this is shitty and i know that that's why it's called shitty things we did as kids johnny and i would do this like every time i i spent the night at his house people would be cruising by benzes and jags getting fucking rocked by strings with cans attached to them i have no idea why it was just our shitty thing i mean i i have some idea why like this was the idiotic prank that gave all the adrenaline and excitement of being criminals committing tight crimes without actually doing anything to hard core like you know that feeling when you're a little kid doing shit you're not supposed to do it's exciting it gets your blood going you feel fucking alive and when you're a little kid you already feel super alive so it's just like exponentially awesome whereas when you're in adult and you're doing things to feel alive it's because you literally are dead inside so that was not the case you're like we were already psyched on life this was just like the icing on the cake and sure someone could have swerved off the road nail the tree or a mailbox or even a house as a result of being so distracted or terrified by the sound of a few dozen coke cans clanging around behind their car sure that could have happened and.

"Club setting it was fun and i apologize the gang for over over sharing i've learned my lesson firsthand i don't wanna be hypocrite thank you all i think this is a good talking point though because here's the thing i wouldn't have a problem with thirty minute thirty one minute whatever it was show a short show if i go into it knowing that's what i'm going to get and i know exactly what time it's going to start that is never the case when it comes to rats that's exactly rap artists in particular are notorious for never showing up on time and i don't mean like ten twenty thirty minutes late i mean ours ours late sometimes not at all and i don't know what it is about the rap game the management the the booking agents who it is that's causing this issue but it's always been a problem in hip hop and it continues to be in amazes me that in this situation with bundy it's like it's almost like the day before he was like you know what can i just do like thirty minutes and they were like sure with a couple more shitty rappers on the bill before you yeah maybe it would just if they would've said like hey opener start at ten bon admit because he started right after midnight right like clearly that was the plan was like you're coming on a midnight yeah what can you tell us that they got sell drinks and do all that stuff but it's it's a little frustrating but it was fun and you know he's still the trilogy es the other part of it is the venues though it's like why can you never find information at these fucking venues about what's going on and there's always like for instance the most recent show i saw was hyme at stubs and i talked about it on here on the podcast and for this particular show i was very very excited to see it high something that me and my wife discovered together at cll we enjoy their music the sisters are fantastic we love the show they put on we were very high to go see it so i bought vip tickets when i bought them a little more pricey obviously now when we get there i find out these vip tickets don't actually give his access to anything and i'd been trying to figure out what the hell we got access to with them for days via the internet of which there's no information fucking anywhere none of the venues website on hines website it turns out i bought hyme vip tickets if i wanted the access to the places that i was trying to get access to i needed to buy stubs vip tickets it's it's things like that so what what did that mean i just anything i got a cool badge that was and it was just kind of a bummer it was like dude what the fuck i hate that though not being able to figure out win the main act is coming on stage it has to be intentional right it's gotta be it's gotta be this has got to be a tactic to get you to drink more i just think the frustration i believe you're right it is a tactic to get people to spend more money on concessions but it seems like there's gotta be a better way to go about this less frustrating in frankly disrespectful way to go about it like there's gotta be another way i don't know what it is it's not my job of figure it out but somebody needs to that being said thank you for sharing about bun nice i wish i'd been there i'm jealous i'm jealous that you you did the noble thing and you you going into it knowing it was going to be a shit show meaning there was gonna be several shitty opening acts you don't know what he's gonna come on you you fought through all that and you got yourself trillo gee i salute you a few other now smits first of all we have now several sets of invitations for the rb p gang to start handing out to new recruits i will be distributing those today.
