"Ongoing conversation. The people who are afraid who want to have that strong police presence because they see like many other cities minneapolis also experiencing a crime. Wave that we've seen throughout this pandemic to increase in gun. Violence were not immune from this city but also those who save there has to be some kind of change really. This is also part of what is continuing here such as the legal process. John is also about what is to be that tangible change things have been held up in the minneapolis minnesota state capital in saint. Paul we are one of three or four. Can't remember at the top of my head states that have split representation a split legislature between democrats and republicans. That's a really rare thing to find and a lot of police. Reform bills have stalled in the republican controlled senate here at the minnesota capitol on the same thing has happened even at the city council level. So it's continuing to follow what people are calling for what people matab feel most comfortable with while i think there are a lot of divergent opinions wide spectrum for how people view public safety now and in the future. I think that there have been a lot of very important conversations that need to be heard. Just a great recap of everything. That's going on the news reporter in me comes out sometimes. No no no no no. That's exactly what podcasts are. All about getting as much info out there as possible and people can consume it. How they choose. But it's a reason why you're one of the most respected broadcasters in the industry. Obviously your influences growing. And i'm really excited for what's to come for you whatever's around the corner so thank you so much for spending some time with us today. I'm glad we were able to kind of get both sides of you. The sports decide and the news and we wish you the very best as you. Continue on in this slum much appreciated. John thinks that. Sloan martin good friend of mine here on the hoops.

"Did i say this with the caveat to that. I haven't talked about this a whole lot. Just because i think the focus very much should be on our community and what is happening here and about the legacy of george floyd kind of his continuing story. That is our jobs to towel but yes it was a lot of long days sometimes. Eat from three pm to three. Am being out. I mean i was out. at protests. I was there when things devolved into rioting being hit with tear gas Really being able like difficult to breathe because of the smoke. That's in the air but still trying to do that. Job as safely as possible in listening to what people are saying and reporting on that is to You know one thing that really stuck with me is several months later you know. Sometimes people ask about the reaction about his. This is another thing when you see it through the lens of national needed you see buildings that are on fire you see the destruction and i remember this one quote. A woman told me where she said. It was basically like a pressure cooker and a one point. It was going to verse. And that's how it showed itself in that has really stuck with me and really trying to encapsulate what we saw in terms of the chaos that students certainly at hurt a lot of people a lot of small businesses and communities but it helps put into context also what was happening what that anger and morning felt like in how it manifested in this form so seeing that in person with my own not is veep into the morning night after night. I still think about the times where a buildings there was. One on nearer the third precinct was that was taken by protesters. But it was near the four fourth precinct. I believe where There was just a business at the corner. it was boarded up in so row. in graffiti. Children live upstairs as a deterrent. To not have it be burned down and that was absolutely chilling to me as well so it is difficult to think about what this was one year from. Now about how difficult it was to see the community react this way to see the pain the anguish that so many people for different reasons we're experiencing all at one time while also having a worldwide pandemic got happening simultaneously. So that's what i think about when i of look back at what was going on a year from now and this continues now with the you know the litigation process is continuing. We have federal trial That's already in. The process is happening and in the three other officers to go on trial for aiding and abetting murder at that happening in the spring. It's not done absolutely. The legal process isn't in won't be for years and years. I'm sure but what are the positive things that you wanna point out because you are. They're going on in the twin cities right now that you want the world to know about. I appreciate that question. Because like i said i think a lot of people have misunderstood or of not gotten the story of what things are like here in the twin cities and i think one of the things that has stood out to me is the commitment to each other the commitment to kindness in community that has been on display. I mean after there were the devastation from the unrest in the riots. They were people out the very next day to power-wash out there with power washers. They were there to bring supplies to people who couldn't go to the grocery store. There were people who were there to clean to clean up and you saw that each every single day while people were spending hours outside marching and chanting and raising their fists. And if they didn't participate you know late into the morning. They were back out there the next day to try and clean up into make things better for our community. Seeing the conversation that has happened. I think you know wide open in public in respectfully at the same time. We're seeing schism here. At the moment. Between some members of the city council aligned with the mayor wanting to support more funding more staffing for the minneapolis police department of very public schism between the council members. That do not to. Yes there was that big press conference of powder horn park that people will point to where they said you're going to fund the minneapolis police. No such effort happened the The city council members who have been kind of in that tamp have proposed yesterday dismantling the city council per the city. Charter creating a new public safety department. That does include law enforcement but other trained professionals to respond to incidents such as social workers or mental health doctors for example because of how many crimes of poverty are mental health. Crises are called to police because they are asked to answer for so many problems in so many different kinds of call so listening to what people's concerns are throughout that.

"It's really just been trying to reload to get back to that point making it to the wnba semi-finals last year in the wobble so a lot of a lot of interesting things. Watch with this team but you can still catch me on those Those national platforms. At least initially we had kinda seen unit in a solo type role. I don't know if that's going to continue. But i know at least for me. Radio so low is. That's a breeze. But you know more of a tv solo. Type deal which i know for people who've never done it before they. They might think that's counterintuitive but tv solo is a little bit more difficult. So what are you trying to do their With a solo television broadcast when that is the role for you yeah. It's interesting john again. I appreciate this from one broadcaster to another which i am actually going to have a partner and i am told there was no fault of my own. I felt like i really held my own. Well because usually the links with just kinda he'd that radio see into those national telecast and now they're fine to put a little bit more into the zome really excited about that but yes Definitely there's any aspiring broadcasters out there v. prepared because you never know like i did in the link season opener against phoenix when you might have a a ten plus minute delay and you by yourself and you need that time to fill. There's no breaks no one to help you out known to have your back and that's what ended up happening in that season opener because if you're a member of the clock soft diana taurasi What was eventually the game winning free. It counted to determine with a stop watch. How much time was left on the clock. You see something new every day and that's why we do what we do So yes i am going to have a partner from here on out but you're right with radio. You are filling so much more space because there is more you need to inform the audience about when you're on tv there's not any reason to be breathlessly saying where the ball is on the floor because obviously people can see. And that's something that i like to just letting it breathe a little bit feeling that ambient noise i know that i wanna hear broadcasts. Were there are kind of measured breaks in positive so it's not just consistent talking the whole time and then especially working with myself if he becomes just kind of a monologue and i think you want to avoid that a little bit of funding those times to find a pause in a break But you're right. It definitely is a little bit different after. Switch the hats. A bid going from radio to television but I think they both have their positives and different parts. That are fun about each one. But of course. I mean you've got a long history in on the television side so it you know big ten network right now so many things in the in the background so You know you know what you're doing as far as that goes. I just have you ever thought about like throwing your voice like having a play by play voice and then you know you step in with the color announcer's voice who is a little bit more excitable. Maybe an ex jock. That sort of thing. Have you ever thought about that. I don't know maybe just doing one game like that. Oh yeah that's possible. I mean it is definitely fun. You preferred a lot more to work for someone. Who's like more energetic. And more kind of excited as opposed to feeling like you have to like pull that out of them but yeah that's an idea. Yeah you could. You could do both roles so We're visiting with sloan martin here sloan. I want to take a step back just in case. Anybody doesn't know. Because you and i have gotten to work together a really i mean. You've you've helped us out at my day job. Which is at a news radio station in in dallas and a you obviously work at a news station there in minneapolis. You for better. Or for worse have been at the forefront of covering the george floyd events front to back. I just want to give you kind of an open ended. Start to this. What is that been like for you. And you've obviously just leaped into it and really taken a hold of it. What is that been like for you over this over this past year in and how you grown as a broadcaster through a really great question because it has been a year long process of telling the story of a historical moment just as truthfully as possible so being able to talk to people to truly listen about the concerns about the thoughts and the opinions of people who are in our own community. And i think that's been particularly important here to is because a lot of people outside the twincities thinks they know what the story is think. They know what's happening here. Think they know about what's happening with the city council and the mayor and about to You know quote unquote defunding. The police department and a lot of these things that become lightning rod issues in national media. But i'm here. And i'm on the ground. And that's a really special privilege to have because that means i'm that much more responsible for telling these stories from people who live alongside shoulder to shoulder in the same community so certainly I think you know talking about growing as a broadcaster. I've done a lot of work for. Cbs national radio. Certainly i have. I feel like. I've made kind of casual internet friends with folks at your station just because i have been on there quite a bit on news talk side and i think it really has been vow. Reinforcing what our role is as journalists. And i think this is such an important conversation to have. Now about media literacy about access about The role of media in our society and even in our democracy to get big here on the basketball passed but that is what has really reinforced from the rule of us as listeners and then reporting what we hear from the community so certainly i could list a a lot of historic events. I've been including standing outside with thousands of people as the verdict on a feerick. chauvinist murder. Trial was read and seeing reaction. A lot of bullets that really stick out. Especially as i think of what my like personally exactly one year from now these beginning days of june and how difficult that was for our community really something to reflect about what our role is and i think. The importance of journalism is local journalism. Were there times where it was exhausting because it felt seemed like you were working all the time late into the night especially those early days of the protests and things like that and it seems like it would be a confusing time as well right after george floyd was murdered and then things really started ramping up there. That's exactly right. Did i say this with the caveat to that. I haven't talked about this a whole lot. Just because i think the focus very much should be on our community.

"And how do you think you know. Just with the way that game ended in overtime later clarendon stepping up and and hitting a big shot late in that one as well. How do you think that can be kind of a rallying point. We'll clarendon was such a huge pickup. I think because crystal dangerfield have been getting off to a little bit of a slow start. Choose the leading score on this team. A year ago in the bible in florida the twenty twenty rookie of the year the lowest drastic to be selected as rookie of the year. Just fantastic season any concede as confidence with the way she wanted. The ball wanted to shearer and wriggle did want it in big moments and knew that there was going to have to be a transition this year. More players coming back. Who didn't play in the welsh. She's always going to have some difficulties with certain tease matchups. No head coach cheryl rivas talk about crystal wanting to one in crystal to improve her defense her passing in her rebounding. It's quite a long list to be able to really improve off that rookie of the year season but when you bring in clearing bitten first of all. She had also not had any kind of practice time with the minnesota lynx They came in had shoot around and revalso said after the game that laser differently had no idea what was going on and of course things worked out with them coming back to win in overtime after being down by twelve points against the sun and with leisure. You're getting someone who has that veteran experience. They were able to come into the game in having an impact just because they knew how to play to get things going to meet difficult plays as well and i think that's what really worked with having leisure on the floor so we will see what happens. Once aereo powers is healthy enough to come back. She's dealing with a hamstring injury injury. We don't know her time. Line is right now but It's going to be a lot better Just because lasers now going to have more time to actually practice with the team so the links have had difficulties with that with a lot of different moving pieces in players coming in and out as we move forward here. I feel like and you kind of early on alluded to all the troubles with you. Know just forming a team and getting them to bond and getting them to gel together. That everybody's going to go through this season because not only. Is it early. In the season you have to deal with players that have commitments to their overseas teams. Plus several three on three players have been absent from teams all over the league. And then you know while there is an olympic break. You're still going to have a break there in an all star game and if they just come down to the wire at team that even barely gets into the playoffs could make some noise at the end. If they're playing well at that time we may have to wait till september to really understand who the best teams in this league are. Yeah it's going to be interesting because we don't know how that break is going to affect change. We don't know how teens who have olympians on them. Including the minnesota lynx with sylvia fowles and presumed if sa- collier are going to handle that as well is that time off. When you're missing that the that key of players going to be really helpful or is it. Not so i think you're right that there certainly are teams that i think are standing out right now. Even like the surprise new york liberty. The atlanta dream have lunch won four in a row. And of course you can't forget about the storm as well who met in last year's finals but it really is such a unique kind of season coming off of already unique season with them playing in the rubble. And i think you're right. I mean the season is going to be going into mid september even the regular season. So you have a couple of. You're probably were games. I believe as opposed to the three eight game season but You have who have different numbers of olympians international olympians as well. That really could impact things in how these seems. Finally look when they come back around mid august. Just make it to the tournament. You've got an opportunity where visiting with sloan martin of the minnesota lynx. And slow your roll. This season has changed with minnesota I applaud the links for so long. Having a traveling radio broadcast not only home and away as well. A you've said that's not something that's going to be happening going forward at least here with minnesota. But what is your role going to be kind of going forward this season with the links. Obviously we saw you on a game early on now. thanks john. I think that you and i both appreciate the the role of radio sports and yeah we were yes of course. Of course we were the last Traveling radio broadcast in the wnba. On nationally telecast game. So that's gonna be your. Cbs sports network. That was the season opener and atv twitter and facebook. I know sometimes at least for me the wnba fan feels like a little bit of an errand to try and figure out i. I like the games are so accessible and really on national platforms but sometimes it does feel like an errand to make sure you're finding the right game in the right place. So that's kinda what it is right now but Very much looking forward to the rest of the season as being around the team there so many great stories to tell as the minnesota. Lynx tried to make the playoffs for the eleventh straight year. You know this is a team that has not rebuilt from twenty eighteen and not having a more on the team any more..

Pleased enjoyed this conversation with salone martin. Thanks for the invitation absolutely Always great to have you on and let's start with the the links shall we and it. Yeah it's been a rough start to the season. Honestly i coming into the year. Yeah i i liked their additions coming in. And i like You know what they've already got with the rookie of the year in the league. Nafisa call your people are talking about. Mvp and of course Sylvia fowles who you know. Is the old standby inside. But it didn't really translate through the early part of the season. What do you think that might have been well. There really were a lot of parts to try and integrate first of all. You didn't have the fees a caller that twenty nineteen rookie year second team. Wnba for the first three games as she was wrapping up her season in france and then had to go to the wnba as health and safety protocols. And then you have to really big pieces in particular that you're trying to fit in and kind of old quickly gel. I think one of the biggest things. Wnba as with how short the training camp is how short the season is in all those different factors teams dealing with with players playing oversee dealing with those nagging injuries because of their year round commitment in the toll on their bodies really trying to hit the ground running and get off to a quick start as best as possible and they were trying to do that with new starters in aerial powers who they Were able to sign in the off season as a free agent and also with kayla mcbride as well so trying to heal that out. What does that mean for. Sylvia fowles does that mean for demers. Jonah's in crystal dangerfield. Kennedy's remaining players. And how they put a teen out onto the floor. What's that lineup. Going to look like that offense to look like and if you remember to Camel mcbride was very late to she was able to play in the opening game against phoenix. Pretty much had only a very minimal time with the team. To get acclimated in was pretty much. Just put into the starting lineup. The only learned that day that she was going to be available to play so that has happened with both Few mcbride also most recently lisa clearing who they picked up after she was cut by the new york liberty so there's been a lot of pieces that they had to mixed together in jell together. But you're right. It certainly does look strange when you see her. Now one in four but at one point had been always four for the first time since two thousand seven. If you think about that. I mean my more is just graduating. High school at that time is how long ago that was. So you're right. It is strange to see them while. We're in the standings at this point in that is why win over. Connecticut was so huge because owen five. I mean that's a really huge hole to climb out of in a short season..
"sloane" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk
"I think so. Too what's What's up for you next for me. Next is just you know obviously working on the game and dealing with sort of the epilogue of dwight and shining armor. Because now it's it's completed. I mean we finished the season through covert. Actually which was very daunting task but we did a single positive case. We made it all the way through. It's great a false. A false start aside because no one really knew how the protocols worked in the first series to go back. Yeah it's just dealing with having all that air trying to get the word out so that people can enjoy it and love it and hopefully you know have it be one of their favorite shows. And then yeah. That's pretty much it. I'm just looking for my next thing as well as working on the current thing. Yeah that's great. that's great. well. I'm looking forward to gotham nights. I saw the game play for that When warner brothers had were dc had their busy fandome pan dome. And i saw. I was like wow. This is pretty cool and i am a sucker for dc games although i do have the spiderman game two and that's the spiderman game was fantastic. I really enjoyed that story as well as well. You know. what's funny. Is stephen young. Who plays red hood is martin. Leeann that which is really funny. Because after i started working out of the game. I was like well now. I got a place vitamin. Because i kept putting it off and i played it. I kept takes two pictures to stephen. It was like hey goodness suit in a video game. Hey i just put you in jail. It's cool. I also i also i have to get back to red. Redemption was a lot of fun to rejection. Yeah that was a great game at the western. Yeah i still haven't gotten through red redemption to my only issue with red dead redemption games..
"sloane" Discussed on Resilient Life Hacks
"The year that i've had lots of endings of things. And but what i found in this year i love. I love your word as with has been resiliency. You and the group that i work with at self publishing school. My community of faith filled female entrepreneurs do liberation has reminded me that showing even when things are hard and be honest about. It is the best thing ever. It's not what you're just talking about like actually facing that fear actually saying. I'm a have my makeup on today. But inside i'm hurting but i'm gonna come in. Do the best that i can. So just give me some grace. Then somehow as you're in that space and you're showing up it does exactly what you said. The lord comes in and he's able to just like that japanese mosaic claimed. Put it back together with the light that can shine through it and the pieces that get put back act. I have seen his majesty in this year. And i think that's often times i have been living out. Worshipping him in my broken ness and that the resiliency that only a god that we serve can give us that even in the midst of all your hard things that there is so much joy Now i'm gonna cry watering my eyeballs. Yeah it's true. I love that it's when we're at our weakest. That's when he shows up strong. And i feel like his light able to shine through us better with the cracks. That comes through us to other people into other situations. And i totally agree with you about the showing up thing. There have been so many times in my life. Where i'm like okay. I did the best i could. And i've shown up at now. I need you to show up because if you don't think go south real quick. That is a real prayer. I shown up. i need you to show up. you always does. He always has always. I know it's so good. Yeah yeah it's been that process of doing hard things. I think we could talk about it over over again. One of the things can share. One thing that i've learned in this last year is that there is no comparison in hardness if you're connected and community whatever community you are connected in. I think we're talking to faith. Filled women here and some men and community is so important for us right in the healthiest of communities. Sometimes there's comparison that happens. And i think the worst comparison is the comparison of pain so as women uplifting women and men supporting women and all the things we have to remember or i encourage everyone that no matter the level hurt or pain or whatever. There is no comparison. Pain is pain right. 'cause sometimes we look at someone else's situation and we go either. Oh you know. I've fell into that trap. Where is depressed. But i'm like.

One of the first few amazon live action kids series and it was just when like they just had like i think they had men in the high castle A few other shows in the jungle.

I'm watching it on my. ps four. Exactly right. I mean it's what you do i it's great. I mean there's so much you can do going back to video games. It's really such a unique way to tell a story. It is and it's so immersive your your party. So it's not like most of the entertainment. We have is passing. You're just watching somebody else do it. With this is your your your decision making impacts everything that happens and as an actor. Of course you've got to record all different versions of the same. Just in case you know people lose you gotta die and this is probably a very controversial statement. But i would say that there is. I don't know not really. I would say video games are better than video game movies and video game movies that while while fund while the opportunity to create a another version of that story i mean i think i truly think video games are the best medium for those types of stories. I mean when you look at like dot of war right through god of war in like a week or less probably and when i played through it i mean i could not have had a more immersive and emotional experience because like you said you're making those decisions so you know when at one point spoiler alert but the has been out for a had a game of the year edition so i- spoiling much But like you know when when a is is sick and he needs to be healed right.

Or how did that work. Well we did the cinematics but when it comes to stunts of obviously stead for stunt performers. Who are doing the great work they do. And let me tell you man. I like video games right. I never put enough. Thought into the amount of work on into creating like super crazy moves like that. I never put enough thought into the idea that like someone is actually doing that like. It's not just a computer saying okay. Now he does a flip. It's like no you film someone doing this specific amazing aerial move and then you've animated and the tweak it a little bit and then it's gameplay i mean it's it's phenomenal so i don't. I didn't really obviously raise your hand up and do something like that but no we just we just did the scenes mostly why that's really. That's really incredible.

The guy that is spellbound to the princess and is totally not qualified for the job in a fifth season fifth and final about halfway through. And we've just started our ending storyline so in the end of season three. There were like four or five through line in. You know an overarching story. That gets told over the first two seasons in this second. Half of the series those episodes are finally coming to fruition so the fight with the memory thief.

I originally thought it was damian. Sorta auditioning for damian because You know. I didn't know for sure because no-one no-one said on the breakdown but i was like okay.

Keebler, delaying their home repairs and some home repairs that are somewhat serious. So if you are delaying your home repairs, and I get it, because you know, just on the news on your station, and they were talking about how more and more people are filing for unemployment because they're out of work and so delaying repairs. May sound like a good idea because you don't have the money to make those repairs. But in the end, it's going to cost a lot more so, finding the ways or learning how to do it yourself if it's if it's something that you can do now, Some of these items that people have been putting off honestly is not something that I would even attempt to tackle. You would have no problem taking our washing machine apart into a million pieces and then trying to put it back together, not trying. Fixing it and putting it back together, making it better than it was before.

"My next guest. One of our regulars on the show didn't expect them to be on the show this week, for reasons that he will gladly explain about 10 days ago, He sent me an email saying He was about to be on one of the very first cruise, if not the first cruise sailing in the Caribbean, from Barbados to a number of island countries in the Caribbean, and he did on the sea dream one. I'm gonna let him tell the rest of the story because let's just say that Jean Sloane is now talking to us from his self quarantining back in the United States Say, Jean. Yes, I am. I am locked down in a bedroom. With my wife delivering food outside my door, So it's good to actually talk to somebody. At least. I'm so glad I could help you. But you were there to report on the first cruise with what seemed to be some rigorous testing procedures. And some protocols and behavioral regimes onboard the sea Dream one. There were only 53 passengers and 66 crew. You are one of the passengers. Yeah, that's it. I went down there, of course. Not expecting the story that it turned out to be, but To write about what this purse crews was going to be like. This was a big deal, Cruz The industry because of the very first one in the Caribbean. All the way back to March was the last departure and it did to the small line P dream, very small ship, but they were trying to Get back up and started on Duh. So I went down there. Like other passengers. I got on board first few days went great. It was actually much more normal feeling than Had expected with all the sort of precautions and you know the social different Tino things they cruise lines are implementing. On Ben. Four days into the trip. I was just heading back to my cabin and The captain came out a loud speaker and said. Somebody has started feel stick and had called the doctor been quickly tested and tested positive. At that point, you remained in your cabin. Yeah, so and that was it. You know, Like all lines, they said, um, Luckily it come up with a plan for this kind of thing. You of course they didn't expect it to happen, but they immediately told us to go back to our cabin. And said We were gonna isolate and that was it. That was Wednesday, and I never saw the outside of my door for the next four days. As as that. The whole ship locked down all the pastor's onboard recording teen into their cabin. On do not essential crew also Very limbic crew stayed out inactive. They tested. All the crew came back negative and then You know, we kind of went into a very different kind of cruise, and it was delivering food to our doors, trying in a very kind of orchestrated Noncontact way and we should say to we were at that point we had failed down to ST Vincent and the gravity We're anchored off one of the islands down there. When this announcement happened, nearly turned the ship full speed back to Barbados. And we got in late that night. It was about a 10 hour sales Bumpy because they were going so fast on D health authorities came out immediately and started doing their thing. Well, I'm amazed they even let you land based on the fear factor. We saw What happened with Holland America earlier this year be unable to land in any port for a while, but this crew started but Jean brother we were talking to Jean Sloan, who does all the crews reporting for the points guy. Jeanne. This ship was supposedly sailing from Barbados into a number of islands in the Caribbean and coming back to its supposedly homeport in Barbados. So how many ports did you actually get to We ended up at four different islands and what's interesting here is what they were trying to do with. This feeling is create a bubble on the ship, so they were testing extensively before we got on. And the idea was that We were a covert free bubble. So when we went to these islands They purposely he did activities. We landed places where there were no people. The idea was. We didn't want to interact with the people on the land because we were the ones without cove it and they were the ones who might have. It turned out to be the outfit. But We landed mostly the same physics and the Grenadines. We would do like a little, you know, shuttle on a Zodiac toe empty beach with ever know people. They had a prearranged with ST Vincent. That we could have access to beaches that were uninhabited in some cases on uninhabited little islands. Parts of the main island. Eventually we're supposed to get to Grenada for that dead, of course, didn't happen because that was towards the end of the crew. Exactly. So here's here's my question. The way they were doing. The testing was you were tested before you ever got to the ship. And then you were tested before you boarded the ship. Is that correct? Yeah, that's it, And that's why they were so confident. You know, the whole cruise industry is trying to figure out a way to get back. And what mostly they're talking about is one test before you go to the ship, But these guys did was Three days before I flew down there. I had to go toe. You know, a clinic here and get you know the gold standard PCR test They sent out to the lab tested negative for that had to show them that when I got there And then the day of departure. As I ride it appear that instead of a medical tent, and they did another round, which testing they used those avidity now machines, which can get a test back pretty quick. It's the same machines. They use the White House because they Maybe have some issues there, too. But so yeah to two negatives..
