Following in your parents' footsteps is never easy, especially when mom or dad happen to be superstar athletes. What kind of lessons do hall -of -famers like, oh, I don't know, NBA legend Tim Hardaway and NFL icon Kurt Warner impart on their kids as they chase professional sports stardom? How do they teach them the importance of prioritizing health and how to overcome adversity? Well, you can join Heart of the Game as they explore these questions and more with some of the greatest families in sports. Listen to Heart of the Game on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to Stuff You Should Know, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, and welcome to the podcast. I'm Josh, and Chuck's here, and Jerry's here, and this is Stuff You Should Know. And it's a podcast, and the three of us are part of it. Yeah, this is an article on the science of kindness, which somehow put me in a bad mood. I don't know what that says about me. I don't know why. I don't know why either. It's very odd, but I kind of know what you're talking about. If we're, like, the topic overall that we're going to talk about I think is going to bring joy to people. I hope so. But they'll get angry along the way. But hopefully, by the time we're done, those who are still listening will be like, alright, I'm feeling good again. Alright, let's talk about it. And let's start with animals, because in fact, we can direct people to—we did a great episode, I think, on animal altruism? Is that what it was called? Yeah, biological altruism. Something like that, where we talked about this sort of leading fact as we lead into humans and kindness, the fact that, you know, animals all throughout the animal world display acts of kindness, and many times they are altruistic in that they're not looking for anything other than to help out their bird mate or monkey mate or ant mate. Yeah, you short on last -minute gift ideas. Go look in on what the macaques are giving each other. Kindness. So, it's in animals. We know that. We have evidence of it. It's also in humans. We have pretty good evidence of that, too, that kindness is a thing. But it definitely seems—the fact that it's in animals as well suggests that it's in us on some genetic level. It's not just society being like, be kind, rewind, you know, like there's an actual imperative, a biological imperative for it. And what's odd about it is that most people would think that flies in the face of survival of the fittest, basically Darwin's whole jam that, you know, looking out for number one is kind of—it might not be the antithesis of kindness, but it certainly doesn't go hand in hand. And yet, when you dig into Darwin, you're like, oh, he was actually big time into kindness. He talked—he wrote a lot of stuff about communities cooperating and not just like, hey, it's better if you cooperate to go kill that woolly mammoth. But like, compassion and empathy are markers of a healthy community and a community that will survive in a fitter way. Yeah, like if Tuk Tuk pushed Jibjub out of the way right as he was about to throw a spear into the woolly mammoth, and Tuk Tuk took the shot and took the mammoth down and got all the praise, he's got hurt feelings between him and Jibjub, right? He's got to go to Jibjub. Are we introducing a new character? Yes, it's happening before your very eyes. Wow, this is exciting, and you're 16. Yeah, so like in those communities, and communities now, like the thing that just kind of keeps things not just going, like you can go as a society in a dystopian manner, but it's not a good society. It's not thriving. I think the thing that makes it thrive and then a thriving society is much more likely to survive and reproduce because everybody wants it to because they're having a great time are things like kindness. It's one of those lubricators that helps a society go from surviving to thriving. I agree, and it's also something that, you know, you see, well, hopefully you see firsthand when you have a kid.
Fresh update on "spears" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"The reason it takes a while. Nick Einelli, WTOP News. It's been a long week for some DC parents who were forced to get last minute donations for their kids and not for COVID or the flu. Winter break is just around the corner but some DC parents are only now just getting around to routine vaccines. We saw quite a large rush. Dr. Nathaniel Spears, Executive Vice President at Children's National Hospital, says this week some of their sites around the district reached capacity by the end of the day. There has been a real decrease in families coming in for regular well child care and that has persisted post pandemic. The Office for the State Superintendent of Education released a statement saying, in part, district law requires students in all DC schools to be fully compliant with required vaccinations in order to attend school. These laws have been on the books since the 1970s. Making sure that we don't have a spread of preventable diseases. Heather Gustafson, TOP News. Learn how to schedule a vaccine appointment for your child. Go to wtop .com. teachers in Prince William Students and County Public Schools are getting a longer holiday break next year.

Fresh update on "spears" discussed on Live From Studio 6B
"Saw Jim Jordan speaking of that talking about opening up this look into Fannie Willis and alls I could alls I could think of at the time when I was reading about it was Newt Gingrich. We need you to indict by Monday and she says well I don't they're not even gonna be back by Monday morning and he says no no no I don't think you understand. Right. You need to indict by Monday and Jim Jordan is now looking into that. I don't know if he's looking into that specific call that Newt supposedly says he was told about but it sure makes sense to me it made sense to me then and it certainly makes sense to me now and it wouldn't damn well surprise me if that's exactly what he finds. Yeah. Because it whether it's Georgia or whether it's Judge Chutkin in DC who's the tip of the spear in this whole thing and they're kind of out of the closet about it now too because all the talk you hear now is just about is about DC is it is about her and this case in DC and this is where all of his trouble lies.

A highlight from 116: Part 1: Eric McBride and the December 2015 San Bernardino Terrorist Attack
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playerettes, dudettes, everybody in between, welcome back. This is the follow -on episode to last week with Rick Prado on the 22nd anniversary of 9 -11. We had a theme going here, we wanted to follow through on this next theme, and we'll tell you about that here in just a second, but first of all, welcome. As always, I'm here. I'm Morgan. I'm here literally with my partner in crime, and we're going to do what we did last time. I know some of you guys like small town police water, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to do that when we're talking about something as serious as when we talked about 9 -11. And then this month we're talking with Eric McBride. He retired as the chief of police in San Bernardino City. If you guys remember, Alex Collins we had on was a deputy with San Bernardino County. His partner was killed, Jamie McBride. He was wounded by a piece of shit. We don't even want to mention his name. But we're getting into now the December 2015 terrorist attack at the city of San Bernardino. Fourteen people killed, I think twenty -seven wounded, and it just didn't seem right to follow on. You know, we wanted to have a couple serious discussions, so that's kind of what it was. So before we get started though, just a couple quick things. Head on over to Apple, Spotify, hit those five stars. Let us know what you thought of last week's episode. Let us know what you think of this week's episode. And don't worry folks, next week we'll get back into small town police water. Also head on over to our website, gameofcrimespodcast .com, our book from our prior guest, Rick Prado. You'll see that up there, Black Ops, The Life of a CIA Shadow Warrior. Great reading. You just got to get it. We've got everything you need there. Follow us on social media at Game of Crimes on Twitter, at Game of Crimes podcast on Facebook and the Instagram. But follow us on Patreon too, patreon .com slash gameofcrimes. We just recorded some great episodes. You can't make this shit up. We've got 9 -1 -1, Case of the Month. One rule we made is Murph never gets to pick a movie again. He has to submit it for review before we review it. I promise to do better in the future. Well, because you're on the hook for next month. All right. But guys, we have a lot of good stuff over there. Everything about, you know, we get into funny stuff, we get into serious stuff. Our Case of the Month has been recommended by you, the listeners out there. So head on over there, patreon .com slash gameofcrimes. Now this is a show about crime. We normally are fun and jovial because this is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously and that's how we're going to do it. This is not about us having fun and joking at the expense of a serious incident like this. So our next guest, Aaron McBride, like we said, retired as the chief of police, worked his way up from patrol officer, but started off as a Marine, formerly on active duty. He's got some good stories there, but he comes to us through another long list of people, a family of service, the McBrides out in California. He does. You know, our good buddy out in San Diego, Mel Sosa, made an introduction for us, got us to Eric. But the McBride family is well known in the law enforcement circles out there as brother Jamie, his niece Tony, and then Jamie's other daughter are all police officers out there that have experienced violence that, you know what, most cops in the United States don't have to experience. I'm not sure what's going on with the McBride family here, but you know what, they don't shy away from it and they don't run away. They address the issues as they come to them, and they're protecting their communities. Eric here was just the fact that, I mean, he's a trendsetter. You're going to hear him talk about his high school career, getting out of high school early so he could join the Marine Corps early. And his whole life is service to his community and his fellow man. And you know, in my book, there's no greater calling that you're willing to dedicate your life to work for the public. A public servant, I think, is a term of a hero. And that's certainly who we have on here today. And I'll tell you, again, we've got to thank our buddies out there, Southern California Gang Conference, Mel Sosa, all of those people. They're brothers to us. They get us great gifts, great gifts, great guests, which are gifts for things like this. And I'll tell you, you've really got to sit down and listen to this because one of the things that's going to come out of this is stuff that has not really been talked about in the media before, and you'll hear him talk about a call that was received. He's been briefing this to law enforcement. On the day of, he was the, quote, deputy incident commander, but he was the incident commander for all intents and purposes. And so he's not the one at the tip of the spear out there, but this guy has the overview of everything going on. You're going to hear things that went well. You're going to hear about things that didn't go so well. But we will never get to hearing any of this, Murph, unless I ask you, are you ready to play the biggest, baddest? And as we see in this episode, too, the most dangerous game of all, the game of crime. Absolutely. So everybody get in, sit down, shut up, hold on. You're getting ready to hear a story about an incident that I wasn't even aware of, a terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California. So Eric, tell us what's going on, brother.
A highlight from BCB127_AMERICAN HODL: Wisdom For Surviving The Bear
"All of your well -laid plans are going to be put to rest by the Bitcoin market. You know, I was very confident we were going to over 100k, I think a lot of people were. Then we didn't. And then I was equally confident, I was like, well, if the top wasn't as high, then maybe the bottom won't be as low. And then I was like, probably 30k, the bottom would be like 30k. And then it was, it was faster to 16. And that really shook a lot of people out, man. I mean, it was brutal. I knew people personally who were getting faken. Most people were just totally inconsolable. They're addicted to their fear. Fear like gets real close to you and it talks in your ear and it convinces you that it's correct. You've got to just push past that and you just you can't give in to fear. This is the Blue Collar Bitcoin Podcast, a show where Average Joe firefighters explore the most important monetary technology of the 21st century. We talk Bitcoin, we talk finance and we talk shit. Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. This is what you have been patiently waiting for. The inevitable, our run in with the legendary American Hodl. We hate to tug him off so obviously, but he was built to hang out on our show. Hodl would be equally comfortable for an 8 a .m. coffee hour at the firehouse as he would be philosophizing with the likes of Breedlove. We hope we evoked both of those extremes. Hodl has been in this game for a long time. He is a proper Bitcoin OG. This gives him the rare perspective of having been in the midst of his third bear market. Even when you have three under your belt, they are not easy. We talk about everything from raising kids to overcoming your fear of being penniless and destitute because you put all your money in Bitcoin. Fear and greed run markets, and if you aren't careful, they can run your life. Understand your psychology. As Socrates said, to know thyself is the beginning of wisdom. We can't argue with Socrates, but we can say that the beginning of wisdom is getting your Bitcoin off of exchanges. The best way to make that happen is by grabbing yourself a cold card Mark 4 and punching your seed keys into a seed plate. We cannot impart how important this is. All of your research, all of your understanding, all of your effort to obtain Bitcoin means absolutely nothing if the exchange you left your Bitcoin on goes belly up and shits the bed. So get those coins off of exchanges and into the most reliable, most secure place possible, the cold card. And if you want to get frisky, check out the new Q1 and its expanded capabilities above and beyond the cold card Mark 4. Before we start, we have some coupon codes to share. If you would like to attend Bitcoin Amsterdam or Bitcoin 2024 in Nashville, get 10 % off tickets to either event with code BCB. Now, relax, enjoy this rip with American hodl. That's a stack of kids, my friend. Four in the litter. How are you holding up? This is only like a few weeks ago, right? It's it's good, man. I love having kids. Kids are the best. I I think parents like to complain about having kids, but like I do with the you know, it's like there's this George Peterson quote, which is like if you weren't going to have kids, like what the fuck would you be doing? That's so special. Like most of us are. Yeah. Yeah. It's not like I'm going to be inventing, you know, a new a new like equation for quantum field theory or something like I'm not doing any of that. So like, yeah, string theory is just a bit above our heads as well, you know? Right, exactly. So hanging out with the kids and, you know, playing Uno or goofing around is like, that's where I'm at. That's my song, right? The other thing you are, but I think of my kids just went back to school. So now I have like full days with nothing to do, but what I want to do. And you start to realize, like, what do people without kids in their thirties and forties do? There's just, oh, yeah, exactly. Yeah. You basically just get drunk in different locations. You're like, yeah, I went to Dublin and I got drunk and then I went to Istanbul and I got drunk and then I went to Rio de Ignar and I got drunk and you're like, okay, that's I didn't get drunk here. I got beer here, you know? Uh, yeah, people, people end up and I don't want to shit in the mouth of, of non parents here right off the bat, but fuck it. Let's do it. Everybody should have kids. It's well worth it. And I think at least based on my circle, most people I see that don't end up having children really, really wish they did. They get into their late thirties, forties and fifties and they realize, oh, I see what this whole thing's about. Um, highly recommend it. Get out there. Fuck everybody. Start fucking, start reproducing. Let's expand the species. Let's get more Bitcoiners. Yeah. Listen, if you don't have a, if you don't have kids, I consider you weak hands, you know, cause there's no one to get a huddle after your debt. So what you only got like max, you know, 40, 50 years of huddling there. All right. Like we need to extend that out. Seven generation thinking like my boy, Marty bent says, you know, I listened to you with, uh, the, your most recent chat with Peter and Peter was spending some time saying like, I love smart huddle. I like the glasses. I like the refined civilized huddle and Josh were like, Josh and I were like, fuck that shit. We want total huddle. If you don't deliver that today, you fucked up. Cause we need you fully unleashed my friend. All right. I mean, I'll do my best. Let's see what I got. Firehouse humor. Yeah. Oh yeah. I think you'd fit right into the firehouse based on some of the stuff I've heard you, uh, spew over the, over the years, I think you'd fit right in, especially coffee hour, eight o 'clock in the morning, just a bunch of degenerates. I don't know if you guys have seen the new Shane Gillis stand up on Netflix, but that's like my barometer for humor. Just like extremely immature playground humor, the way we used to talk to each other, you know, third grade. Yeah, exactly. Those are sort of litmus tests for like how far you can go culturally. You're like, Oh, we weren't allowed to say that 10 years ago. He just went that far in that, in that Netflix special. I guess that's the, that's the tip of the spear for how far we can go. Chappelle broke some boundary. A lot of people have broken boundaries on Netflix in the last, comedy in general has been regressive over the last 10 or 15 years. Like every, so many things have been taboo to say, especially for comedians, which really ruins comedians and only like Dave Chappelle can get away with it and a few others, but comedy has really been shit on in the last 10 years. I think the left went too far and they canceled basically too many people and you can't cancel everybody because then now you just have like half the country that's canceled. Right. And so, you know, all the canceled people, it's not like you killed them. Like they're still alive and they're just like, you know what? I don't give a shit about being canceled. And that's like where everybody's at nowadays. And so I am starting to see, like, I think the, you know, canceled culture has peaked and now we're on the other side of canceled culture. And there's a bunch, bunch of people who basically realize like, if you don't cancel yourself, nobody can really cancel you. You just, you just choose not to give a shit about it. I think it was actually Trump that taught everybody that maneuver. Right. Which is like, you know, whatever, I don't care, whatever you say about me, I don't give a fuck, you know, whatever. Uh, and you know, he's just going to, he's just going to keep going out there and calling you stormy horse face Daniels or whatever. He doesn't keep a shit. And you can be like, you know, you were the worst president ever. He'd be like, that's false. That was the best, best president. So you just don't let any of it get in there. You just go, no, he broke a ton of clown barriers. Trump did. He was masterful with the way he could do that. And if that guy had one characteristic that I admire, it's his ability to spin move out of any accusation by calling the other person, an ingenious nickname that stuck, like just nailed it every single time nickname ever. I think it was low energy Jeb. Who comes up with low energy Jeb. And then you would look at him and you'd be like, man, he is really low energy. Yeah, these things work a cup of coffee, you know, shortcut narratives are really effective. Speaking of presidents, you guys see Biden the other day and it was a yesterday in Vietnam. He literally got hooked off the stage because he started mumbling nonsense about something that was far off of what they were talking about. They turned his mic off while he was talking and he kept talking. And then they had an announcer get on and basically say, oh, you're done here, Mr. President, get, they got the hook out and they pulled him off stage. It was like, watch, watch this clip. Yeah, it was, it was insane. Shepherd came out. It was full blown, like, all right, get this fucking guy out of here before he makes us look even dumber. Unbelievable. You know, in a nation of 360 some odd million Americans, I think many of us are very intelligent. Uh, the last two presidents have been kind of, you know, not up to snuff, right? Like where are our good people, you know, like, yeah, we're not sending our best anymore, unfortunately. It is comical, but it's also downright embarrassing because, and I've heard enough out of you to know that you'll agree with this, I'm still very proud to be an American, I think there's a lot of wonderful things that this, this country stands for and imbues and, and it's done and it's, it's a downhill slope right now on both sides. And I just laugh at, I mean, obviously like most Bitcoiners and Josh and I are aligned on this, I just, both sides are in full blown, full frontal clown mode and, and anybody that's latching onto either candidate at this point, I almost lose respect for it. It's like, how can you take either of these guys seriously? But we need to dig out of that. Like that, that needs to be fixed to your point. That's not something that that's healthy for the average American citizen to just be resigned to the fact that the leader of the entire nation is a complete idiot, we need to dig out of that and hopefully reverse that trend. Well, you know, in general, I lean conservative usually, but I actually have been, uh, you know, found myself very intrigued by Robert F Kennedy Jr. And it's not just because he's a Bitcoiner, but I think he really has the discourse into the Overton window, right? Like by basically being like, why am I not, I'm a Democrat my whole life. My father was, you know, a president, a Senator, a presidential candidate. My uncle was killed. He was one of the most popular democratic presidents of all time. Why am I not allowed to say this? Why am I not allowed to have opinions or questions? And yet in America, I feel like anytime we lose our foundational principle, which is, you know, free speech, anytime we're losing that we're losing our soul as a almost anything you want without significant repercussions, that's, that's just how things are. Like, obviously if you say something that's very racist or hateful or homicidal or genocidal or something, then people are going to be, they're gonna have a lot of feelings about it, but there's very little speech. That's actually illegal speech, right? And we should be able to, yeah, just get together in a room and discuss things as Americans. That's a very rare thing. Like that's, that's not something that you find in almost any other culture on earth. You know, I was talking to Peter McCormick McCormick about this, but like the British sarcastic, dry humor that they're all known for that is because they don't have free speech. So they have to be sarcastic. That's never occurred to me before that either. Right. They have a shield to hide behind and they can be like, Oh, come on, mate. I was just taking the piss. Whereas we as Americans can just say what the fuck we actually think, which is a more effective system. They, they have to, I mean, I'm glad it happened because I love British humor. Yeah. They have to show a side boob. They can't go full frontal. You know what I mean? Exactly. Gentlemen. I'm sure you guys will both agree with this point as well. So we've got these clown puppet leaders that we're, we're just accosted with every four years and have to deal with the shit sandwich or the giant douche. And we've got to pick between the two of them. But then there's also like every time there's like, I mean, I'd say most times there's a new law, some new bullshit with COVID that happened in the last couple of years, I'm stunned by the stupidity and heavy handedness, which a lot of this stuff comes down. And it's like, it's like, I'm disappointed by how bad these takes can be and how bad these real changes are and how overbearing a lot of this has been, especially in the last few years. But it seems like every time a new law is, is instantiated, it's just feels wrong on its face. And I feel like people are so numbed to it at this point that they just say, they just expect it to be the wrong thing instead of what we would prefer to have. Or I think people from our circles would prefer to have at least. What are your thoughts on that? About how there's just like this numbness about how these people operate. Well, there's, you know, we're recording this on nine 11 and one of the reasons I wanted to record with you guys, cause you're both firefighters and I think not, you know, we're all around the same age. Nine 11 was the seminal moment of our young lives. And obviously like certainly had an effect on both of you, I'm sure. And I'd love to hear your stories about that. Um, but you know, to me, I'm, I'm, I have a good, I have a great memory. That's it's a gift and a curse. And one of the things that, uh, I remember is the world pre nine 11. I remember what it was like, and we're now living in an entirely different world. That's not better. It's a worst world. You know, we have an, a heightened security state, a heightened surveillance state. I mean, you used to be able to just, you know, what is TSA really accomplished? Like, did they prevent any new, uh, atrocities? I don't think they did because one guy tried to bomb a shoe bomber shoes, and now we are going to take off my, I got to take off my fucking band, slip -ons every time, you know what I mean? And your belt crying shame. Yeah. Yeah. Fucking shoe bomber. I mean, it is, it is like, we appreciate you bringing that up. It is, uh, in the fire service, it's, it's the day of the year. Um, and it, it's been said for a couple of decades now, never forget. But I feel like the fire service, Josh has done a pretty good job of not forgetting. Like you still see it on a lot of fire trucks. Every single firehouse around the country is honoring it today. There's a moment of silence that comes over dispatch. There's events that happen every year and yeah, I don't know. This is just a complete sidebar on nine 11, but it was fucking insane. Fucking insane. I was in sixth grade. I remember where I was as everyone does. Um, and wasn't fully able to appreciate the magnitude, but as the years have gone watching back in the documentaries and thinking through just like from our vantage point, um, I, Josh, we've talked about this before with our career. Like there is a degree of submission to risk. It doesn't happen very often. We don't want to overplay the hero card here. And the vast majority of our job where paramedics, we rotate ambulance to fire truck, but when this shit happens, it's real. And you've kind of sworn an oath to not have a choice, but to go into that, if that happens in your career, that second story bedroom to risk your life for a kid or whatever, all those men and women that went into that building, obviously hindsight's 2020, but if we worked in New York at that time and, and had the badge on, we would have had, we would have done the exact same thing. So, um, yeah, the heroism that existed by I agree, like to, to get, to get back off the nine 11 is just like, what, how has the world improved in any way, shape or form since then? And it has not in many ways, it's devolved in the opposite direction and we need new currents that flow the opposite way that, that get us back to a lot of American ideals, which is part of what we've latched onto the most about what you've said. And spoken into this community. Totally. We see, uh, so the Patriot act was instantiated right afterwards, which took away a whole, it added surveillance, took away a whole bunch of fundamental rights. And it was supposed to be sunsetted. I don't remember if it was five or 10 years after nine 11, but they extended it and they've continued to extend it since then. It's again, back to what we were just talking about. Like these, it's almost like a peg in, they get a foothold in and the politicians never relinquish any power whatsoever. It's always another step up. Another squeezing of, of the populace. They peg a shit coin into, into American ideals, kind of like potentially pegging shit coins into Bitcoin with drive chains. I don't know. Maybe we ended up today. Smooth transition there. I can't think of a worse way to honor all of the brave guys, you know, who ran into the towers when they were on fire. Then what we've done in the aftermath of nine 11, you know, I just can't think of a worse world. I saw it. I saw an Instagram post that actually made me pretty emotional. It was a, you know, young, pretty girl. She's probably in her like late twenties now. And she went to visit the Memorial cause her father was FDNY and he ran into the building. He ran into tower two and he collapsed on him and she grew up her whole life without her father. Right. And he made the ultimate sacrifice. And that's something that you guys have to, you know, that's an interesting conversation actually like around risk.
A highlight from 115: Part 1: Ric Prado Hunts Osama bin Laden and Leads the CIA Response after 9/11
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playwrights, dudettes, everybody in between, welcome. This is a special edition of Game of Crimes. We're going to dispense with a couple of things that we normally do, small town police water, things like that, because number one, it's the 22nd anniversary of 9 -11, never forget. And this episode and the following episode that you'll find, too, that we'll be talking about the issues of terrorism. So nothing funny about terrorism, nothing funny about all these people dying. But our next guest, we'll talk about him in a minute, but we just kind of want to set that stage real quickly, though. Thank you guys for joining us. Morgan here, joined by my partner in crime. Hey, it's Murph, everybody. Yeah, hey, guys, head on over to Apple, Spotify, hit those five stars, really means a lot. And after this episode, I think you'll realize why hearing stories like this are so important. So head on over there, head on over to our website, GameOfCrimesPodcast .com. The link to our next guest book, what we'll be talking about, you're going to find that there are all sorts of good stuff there. Follow us on that thing they call social media at Game of Crimes on Twitter, at Game of Crimes Podcast on Facebook and the Instagram. But look, join us over on Patreon, Patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. We just got through recording. You can't make this shit up. Had some fun there. We did our Q &A, which is one of the funnest things we do. I think it's the most fun we have because it's driven by you, our players, right? It's a blast. It's a blast. And we've got good stuff. We got some good comments on our previous episode, 911, what's your emergency? Which was actually recommended to us by one of our guests out there, Bunny, if she's listening. That was her asking about that. So we did that. So hey, good stuff. But yeah, guys, just head on over to Patreon .com. A lot of good stuff. We've got 911, what's your emergency? We've got our Narcometer review, our monthly Q &A, case of the month, you know, and so we have a lot of fun. So join us there. Patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. Now, this is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. But in this case, we take the story seriously, you know, we don't take ourselves seriously. Exactly. But in this case, we wanted to just take out some of this because our next guest, Murph came to us by way of a friend of the show again, good friend of the show, Patrick O 'Donnell. Yes, sir. And thank you, Patrick, again, for introducing us to Rick. This guy is a true American patriot and hero. Rick Prado is our guest today, worked as an ops officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. Now, if you've heard me talk in the past, I make jokes about what CIA stands for. But if you've ever seen our presentation, I explained that it's not an indictment of the entire agency. It was one particular person we had problems with while we worked in Colombia. The agency, in my opinion, is one of the best in the world. Everybody dogs them out because they can't publicly defend themselves because everything they do is secret, which goes to protecting our country. So, you know, I know a lot of you probably want to agree to that and you've had bad experiences or you just believe with crap you see on TV or in the movies. But Rick's going to straighten out a lot of that stuff today. You're going to hear stories that you're not going to hear anywhere else. And let me tell you, too, the great thing about Rick is we knew some of the same people and actually one of our guests we had on, Tracy Walder, previously, had just come on the agency at that time. But Rick was in charge of the Counterterrorism Center, CTC, for CIA. When you talk about the tip of the spear, they were the tip of the spear before the tip of the spear got in there, before the Green Berets got in there, before the first military boots were on the ground. It was CIA, their paramilitary officers. Guys, this is a story, you know, and I know people say, we dispel a lot of stuff. But here's the important thing, Rick gets into, we actually have some very candid discussions around 9 -11, the current threat of terrorism, what's going on in the world. We dispel and disabuse people to some of these notions about enhanced interrogation techniques. It's not torture. I know some people disagree with that. It's not torture. Not when we put our folks through the same thing. He'll talk about seer training. But I think the biggest thing that I got out of this, Murph, was just listening. Here's another guy like Jack Garcia, came out of Cuba, fled Castro. These people know what communism looks like. They know how bad this stuff is. And they came to this country. His first firefight was at seven years old. He's going to tell you about that. First time, not that he was actually directly involved, but he was in the middle of a firefight at seven years old with automatic weapons. Again, it's just what an American, you know what the American story is, Murph? Here's somebody who comes to America, loves America, wants to do everything they can to defend and protect America against all enemies and foreign and domestic. And here's another guy that's living proof of the thing you always say, just because we retire doesn't mean our oaths expire. What he's currently doing is great. So hey, look, we're going to, like I said, we're going to dispense with a lot of stuff. We just want to get right into the episode. So before we can talk about this episode, Murph, there is one thing we do have to do. Before we talk about this, I need to ask you, are you ready to play? And you guys will realize this. In honor of 9 -11, the biggest, baddest, most dangerous game of all, the game of crimes. Everybody get in, sit down, shut up and hold on. Bring Rick on a true American patriot. Unbelievable what you're getting ready to hear.
A highlight from Episode 54: Jeff Culhane
"I was lucky enough earlier in the game that Jared Versa blocked a field goal and he had raised his hands the guy that blocked it usually is running raising his hand like he got it and so Versa did that earlier in the game and I'm trying to find somebody on the field in the middle of the celebration that's looking similar and Shaheem Brown is running down the LSU sideline with guys chasing him and he's got his hand in the air and I just went with it yeah could have been wrong could have been somebody else but I trusted it and I went with it there was so much going on and I said Shaheem Brown got his mitt on it and then I wanted to fire up the war chant and plant the spear. Knowles win, Knowles win, Shaheem Brown's the hero, Mike Norvell here's your signature win early on in non -conference play you're not gonna keep the Knowles off of Bourbon Street tonight baby you know and there it was. Right, that's awesome. From Fiore communications it's how I got here a show of inspiring stories from Tallahassee area leaders business owners and neighbors all the challenges opportunities inspirations the twists and turns of life that led them to where they are today everyone has a story worth telling and I am really grateful that we get to bring a few of them to you I truly have been changed by my conversations with these amazing people and I'm confident you will be too.
Relating to the Rescuer: Imagine Modern-Day Noah
"Story of Noah is, you know, it shouldn't get past us, that it has something to do with baptism, right? There's this idea of drowning this old civilization, this man, this old man, and preserving the righteousness, which there was righteousness present because Noah was present. And I think I've said this before, but it's important for us, especially as we go through this story, to humanize Moses. We have to bring him down to our level on purpose so that we can relationally connect to him. Maybe you're like, how can I do that? That's someone that's been dead for a long time. And yeah, it's not, it's in the same way that you would read just a good novel in today and you would relate to the characters because they reminded you of themselves. Sometimes we fail to do that in the Bible because we just think of these grand stories that are told in here and we just think, wow, I could never be as righteous as Noah. And it's true, maybe we all have flaws and there are, but Noah also has flaws. What God likes about Noah is his faith. His faith in God creates his desire to be obedient to a voice that he's hearing. We don't know if he's hearing it inside or outside. But he is being obedient and sometimes you've heard that voice inside, outside, maybe it was a feeling. We all have history with God. So it's important for us to relate to Noah in this story and connect to his humanity. Now let's imagine a modernized version of Noah, you know, likely someone that is wildly full of faith, but not untouchable. He would want to share it. He would want us to understand it. At the time there's nobody for him to share with, so we don't get a real big picture of who he is in community, but we can imagine that this would be an influencer, a person who would share his faith because of how strongly he felt about it. You know, he's a guy that's brilliant when it comes to following instructions about architecture. His faith led him to hear and design and build and move in this amazing, never before seen. I mean, he is a tip of the spear kind of guy. He loves animals. If he didn't before, you know, God puts it on him to bring in these pairs. He's a man of the land, very observant. And so in so many ways, you know, given the circumstances, this is someone we could get to know, right? And we could have known and we could know.

A highlight from Bitcoin Book Softwar BANNED! National Strategic Significance of BTC (Most Efficient Weapon? )
"Major Jason P. Lowry of the United States Space Force wrote this extremely dense book called Softwar, a novel theory on power projection and the national strategic significance of Bitcoin. And in an interview with Robert B. Love a couple months ago, Lowry said he wrote the book as a step -by -step guide for politicians, regulators, or anyone on how to win the argument that Bitcoin is a national security issue that needs to be addressed by the United States yesterday. He argues that this new technology is the next newt, and the fastest way to bypass all of the regulatory bureaucratic BS that is causing the U .S. to fall behind as the global and technological superpower in the world is to take the issue out of the hands of the likes of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, SEC Chair Gary Gensler, who do not understand warfare by using this book to prove Bitcoin is a national security issue and catapulting it to the hands of the Department of Defense. Is Major Lowry onto something? Are other global powers already privy to this concept? Is that why Russia and China have recently pivoted and have become top Bitcoin hashers? Well, it's possible, because this book was printed and available to anyone around the world in February of 2023, and as of a few weeks ago, the Pentagon told Lowry to remove it from publication. Here's a tweet from Lowry on July 27th about the situation. For those asking what's going on with me, I was ordered to take Safwar down and asked to stop talking about the subject publicly. Doesn't appear on MIT's library either. Can't talk details, but things are good and I'm working hard behind the scenes. Appreciate the kind words. As some of you may know, I ordered the book when it first came out, and I've got a printed copy. So in this video, we are going to break down Lowry's thesis together about the national strategic significance of Bitcoin. So there are a few concepts we need to explore together to help us fully grasp the gravity of the theory. So let's start with physical security of scarce resources. Here on Earth, everything is in constant competition for scarce resources like food, territory, energy, shelter, a means to reproduce like a mate and similar, and every single thing alive in the world today succeeded at living and reproducing by using physical force or imposing a physical cost on predators, competitors, and any other living organism that was competing against them for food, territory, the ability to reproduce, etc. And to describe what imposing physical cost means, Lowry uses an equation where he explores the ROI or return on investment of attacking something and considers the ratio of the potential benefits or rewards from attacking something compared to the potential costs or downsides of attacking something. For example, what are the potential benefits versus costs of trying to harvest the scarce resource of honey from a beehive? Well, over time, bees have optimized themselves to reduce their vulnerability to attacks and to secure their food resources by imposing physical force on attackers by swarming and stinging them. And we can also imagine how this plays out across all of nature when considering most animals at the top of the food chain have pointy teeth, sharp talons, big claws, lots of muscles, strong bones, etc. All attributes that increase their ability to increase the costs or downsides of something that may try to attack it and increase their ability to secure scarce resources like food, territory, etc. Nice. Now with humans, the same concepts apply but play out in multiple domains in civilization due to our complexity, intelligence, psychology, physiology, and a myriad of factors. In those domains where we impose physical force against each other, on a global scale are land, water, air, outer space, and now, as Lowry points out, in his thesis, a new domain has emerged called cyberspace. So in each of these domains, to decrease our chances of being attacked, there must be a consequence. Otherwise, we wouldn't be able to maintain control and security over and access to valuable resources essential for survival like land, food, energy, natural resources, ports, etc. And as unfortunate as it may seem, warfare is the last resort to secure our resources if laws, policies, treaties, or agreements break down between different countries, civilizations, or similar. And we see it every day in nature. Lions don't negotiate terms with the gazelles when they are hungry, they just eat them. Snakes don't refer to contracts or similar between their prey, they just eat them. If a pack of wolves controls some territory and then another pack of wolves shows up, they don't have a civil conversation about where boundaries are or about sharing resources. They bark, growl, snarl, and ultimately, if it comes down to it, engage in warfare through physical force to try to secure their territory. So humans experience these same situations if we spend time developing irrigation and farmland, the only way we can secure it is by imposing a cost of attacking it with physical force. Throughout time, that has looked like spears, swords, arrows, and eventually guns and so forth. So the function of warfare is physical security over scarce resources to establish pecking order, settle disputes, and similar. Resources in life are scarce, so life has to fight for the limited resources to survive. However, over time, the form of warfare has changed. In modern society, we outsource warfare or physical security of force to the military, police forces, and similar. So while most of us do not participate in applying physical force to secure resources, war still wages on every day around the world. In the domain of land, we have armies that impose physical force on any attackers, or the armies impose physical force to try to secure land we may not currently control, depending on the cost and benefit ratio of attacking a particular area. In the domain of water, we have the navy that imposes a high cost of physical force on attackers like pirates to ensure our ports are secure and we can successfully trade across the ocean with other countries. In the domain of air, we have the air force that ensures we have access to this domain and that it is secure from potential attackers by guaranteeing a very high cost of attacking it with jets, missiles, drones, etc. In the more recent domain of space, we now have a space force that ensures we have access to space and can secure our resources by the threat of imposing physical force on anyone who tries to deny our access or threatens our resources. So at the end of the day, handshakes, policies, agreements, etc. are not enough to ensure we have freedom of access to our land, water, air, and space because, as we've discussed, there needs to be physical cost and a threat of physical force to protect ourselves from attackers. This is how civilization works and even though warfare sucks, a key benefit to warfare is it ensures decentralization of control over resources where no one centralized person, entity, country, or government has control over all of the land on earth, all of the rivers, seas, and oceans on earth, over all of the air space and outer space, and when or if a Hitler or similar tries to gain more power over any domain like land, it becomes extremely expensive and energy and resource intensive for them. Warfare is also a way to escape oppression and that if something starts to oppress you, warfare is how you prevent and escape from it. Cool. Now what happens when civilizations expand its footprint into the new emerging 5th domain of cyberspace? And what role does bitcoin play as potentially the most efficient weapon ever built that doesn't kill or physically harm anything? Hello, I'm Crypto Casey and in this video we are going to explore major Jason P. Lowry's theory on the strategic significance of bitcoin. Let's hit it.
A highlight from A New Testament Biblical Theology of Evangelism | John Miller
"This resource combines expositional sermons and lectures from the classroom of Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary to help equip listeners for the work of the ministry. All right, we're coming back to our study of a biblical theology of evangelism and missions in the Bible. We've been working our way through the Old Testament, and we're going to come to some of the New Testament as well. Before we come to the New Testament, we're going to end by looking at some of the prophets, and particularly in Isaiah. I could spend some time, we could go through many other areas in Zechariah or in Jonah especially. You can see God's heart for the nations there in Jonah. But I just want us to look particularly at one of the major books that's often called the Gospel of the Old Testament, and that is Isaiah, and it has much to say about the good news of the Messiah and the Messiah's work, not only for the nation of Israel, but for the entire world. Just to note a couple of things before we come to some of the servant songs, you may recall for example in Isaiah chapter 2, it talks about the mountain of the Lord. Just read a few verses from there, it says, the word that Isaiah the son of Amos saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains and shall be lifted up above the hills and all the nations shall flow to it and many people shall come and say, come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways, that we may walk in his path. For out of Zion shall go the law and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations and shall decide disputes for many peoples and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nations shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the Lord. How it speaks of the wars ending, nations coming to the mountain of God, coming to worship him, it's a picture, one sense of what happens to some degree now in the new covenant as people from various nations come to worship at Mount Zion, which is not a physical location in Jerusalem or in Israel today, but it is spiritually welcome, as Hebrews 12 speaks of, you're not coming to Mount Zion, but you've come to Mount Zion. So that's happening today and it's also in one sense a picture of what will be at the end when all will come. So nations will come to worship the God of Israel and you find that in several passages in Isaiah. You can also see it in Isaiah 55 verses 3 to 5, Isaiah 66, 18 to 24, again don't have time to look at those passages, but I commend them to you. But one of the main things that you see in the book of Isaiah is the servant songs, how the suffering servant will accomplish his mission. And there are four main servant songs in the book of Isaiah, Isaiah 42, Isaiah 49, Isaiah 50, and then Isaiah 52, 13 to the end of Isaiah 53. And God is in so much of the book of Isaiah, he's indicting Israel for trusting in idols for their deliverance, and God is calling them to trust in him and his servant for deliverance. Going back to Psalm 2, right, it's the Lord and his anointed, take refuge in the Lord's anointed.
From Sex Worker to Sex Healer: Erikaa Briones' Unconventional Journey
"Eddie Cabriones is actually she is a guide for purpose driven, high achieving women, and specifically women that are on their hero's journey towards their sexual liberation and satisfaction. Yeah. I believe you offer this intuitive approach, which shares various different spiritual modalities that help women really become their best selves. Yeah. And through your work, you've been able to emphasize the importance of addressing the self hatred, the body shame, and when we start living in our heads, and really addressing that before even entering into some type of sacred union, or even just magnetizing our partner. So, like I said, I am honored to have you on the episode so that you can share some of your insights. Now, did I miss anything? No. No. Okay, perfect. Perfect. So, um, I'd like to start off by asking you to share a little bit about your origin story. Like, how did you start like, how did you get on this path of conscious sexuality? How did that unfold? Conscious sexuality started from the unconscious world of sex work. So I actually did write my origin story in 2021, I believe, and this is like a few months before Britney Spears came out with her story of her, her own hero's journey, and I was actually writing the first few blogs of my sacred prostitute Chronicles. So I was in the sex industry for a few months in 2012, thinking it's just going to be a few months ended up being until 2020. So like, a short of like, 10 years. And so that's been my my life experience. I have a PhD in life. And most of that is being a sex worker. And it's so interesting, because I'm like, I'm starting to work with a lot more sex educators. And I shared, I had imposter syndrome of being, I'm like, I'm not a sex educator, they're like, well, you work with, I don't know how many men, how many women since 2012? I'm like, I would say, like, in the 1000s, you know, and so that's the start of, you know, it was very unconscious, because it was just so driven by greed. And, you know, like the material world and just like needing to get to get by. And now it's like, no, I really want to go deeper into the psychology, understanding like, oh, you know, just like understanding what it is to be conscious. It's such a, it's such a buzzword that we use. But it's so much deeper than like, chakras and crystals. And feeling good. It's, it's so much, it's really looking at the ugly. And that this is what sex work taught me is like, looking at the good, bad and ugly.

It's on the way. We love Burberry. We love bonnets. I can't believe it's not butter. Okay, so, what am I talking about? My name is Bill. We come to you live every single day at 1130 a .m. Eastern Standard Time. Didn't even—big announcement. Didn't even need anybody to do the intro for me. I was here on time. I was ready though. You were ready. Tim boy crypto is always ready. I call him Tiny Tim Crypto. Tiny Tim Crypto. Tiny Tim Crypto. Yeah. Tiny Tim Crypto. So, guys, the purple looked better. People are asking for the purple? Oh, no, it's because it's saying salon. Oh, royalty. Let's go back to purple. They think I'm the king. They tell me I'm the king. Look at that, guys. I'm the king. Here we are. Guys, don't forget to smash that like button. Number one thing you can do as a member of the BitSquad, if you're in BitNation, make sure to smash it. Look at that. Do we put different shirts on this guy all the time? That's smart. I just noticed that today. What about on my monkey? Does he get a different shirt? Yeah, again, if you change the color of the shirt, we're like Madonna. Because, you know, do you know about Madonna? About her bored ape? Do you not know about it? I did not know she did. Do you know about it, Drew? Yes. Okay. Yes. Okay. First of all, what is this doing up here? Mmm. Johnny. The cats are in the office, so. Johnny, hide your trash. Hide your trash. Johnny, come up here and get your trash. Unbelievable. Get your trash, Johnny. Thank you, Johnny. Thank you. God. Monkeys? Okay. Mice? No good. We'll see. We definitely should have put a poll up. How many of you guys, when you use a computer, prefer the trackpad using Apple or a mouse? It's not a reliable poll, because a lot of people are dumb. Trackpad is far superior. When you understand how to use this, like a pro, you cannot do better. You cannot do better. Oh, here. You can't do better than a trackpad when you know how to use it. And when you don't know how to use it, when you're low IQ, you like a mouse. I get it. Technical analysis is borderline impossible using a trackpad. Absolutely not. High level. High level technical. Absolutely not. Kelly, what are your thoughts? Trackpad, mouse, TA. Mouth only. I'm telling you. These people are monsters. They're monsters. They're monsters. That's why I call them Tiny Tim. And that's why, well, Kelly's over there. I don't even call Kelly anything because he's just Kelly. Like I don't even, you know, he's irrelevant to me at this point. No, we love Kelly. He's coming on the show later. So I gotta be nice to him. Hey. What's the poll? Everybody's saying mouse, right click it? Yeah. Guys, it's because you're just not experts with a trackpad. When you understand the expertise of the trackpad, you will definitely move over to it. Now, what were we talking about? Bro, try playing counter. Okay, gaming, I get. I understand gaming. I understand gaming. I will give you that. What were we talking about? I lost my train of thought. Madonna. Madonna. Madonna. We love talking about Madonna. Madonna, thank you. We love talking about Madonna. Madonna Borde. This is so stupid what she did. It's so unbelievably dumb. Okay, so. You remember that NFT video? Oh, I do remember that. Not flashbacks. Let's not show that. Okay. That was terrifying. Yeah. Okay. Here it was. Wait. This is it, I think. I think that's it. Let me click images. Hmm. It's this one. Here it is. Okay, so. Here is the actual. I think this is the actual ape right here. Okay? Do you guys see it? This is the actual ape. Now, you can't really see it. Oh, here we go. You see it right here. Now, notice a couple things about it. Cigarette and background. She changed it. She literally changed her NFT. She got rid of the cigarette because it promotes smoking, and she changed the background. And this is what she put out. Madonna. It's just a scared monkey now. Madonna, that's not your NFT. That's not your NFT. That's not it. You can't change the characteristics of your NFT, and it'll still be the original NFT. Now, you can brand it, and then you could do stuff with the branding of your monkey, but that's not your NFT. I'm sorry, Madonna. I guess when it comes to these NFTs, she's like a virgin. What can I say? Don't cry for me. Don't cry for me. Okay. I can. She needs help. She needs help. Madonna. Madonna needs help. You know, she needs help. We got to say a little prayer. A little prayer. A little prayer for Madonna. It's another Madonna song. I don't know that much about Madonna. Well, it's because you're not like into like worldly things. You're not into worldly things. It's true. You're not a material girl, Tim. I'm not. There we go. Okay. Boom. That was a good one. You got a bit. That was good. That was good. That was good. Where do I come up with this stuff? I don't know. I guess I just, it's because I'm fashionable. I'm in Vogue. Okay. You just can't stop. Guys, I'm a secret. I'm a closet Madonna fan. I'm a closet Madonna fan. Like, I'm not going to rock Madonna on the radio when I'm driving around in the Lambo, but only because I'd be embarrassed. That's fine. I do love Madonna. I'll tell you this. My favorite halftime show of all time next to obviously the number one of all time, nothing touches it. Anybody know what it is? No. Dr. Dre, Snoop, and Eminem. Okay. That, yeah. A lot of people like Prince. A lot of people like Prince. The Prince one goes over there too, but like, I was, Prince, like, you know, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, because I could have been a singer. Yeah. This purple inspired me. A lot of people like the Prince one, but my favorite halftime show ever was the Madonna one. I really loved the Madonna one. Actually. I really did like it. It was great. The Who. I don't know about the Who. I don't know about the Who. Let's see what other people. Don't Cry For Me Argentina. Yeah. I really liked that one. That wardrobe malfunction one was fun. Oh, the JT and Janet. Was that planned? It was planned, obviously. Obviously it was planned. She had a thing on. Yeah. Obviously it was planned. It was intense. Oh. Hey, my wife is here. Hang on. Hon, Ria is here. That's Ria. Ria's here. I just made an introduction from behind the camera, in front of the camera. It was amazing. Okay. All right. So, guys, let's get going on the show. Should we do the show today? We should do some form of a show. But before we do the show, if that buzzer ever stops working, I need one from my desk too. Okay. Can we get a new one? Probably. Where's my guy who made that one? A lot of people like Bruno Mars. Bruno Mars one was okay. Pregnant Rihanna. Not because she was pregnant, but I'm just not a Rihanna fan. I've never really been in love with Rihanna. I don't know why people are so. It's a strange show. Yeah. People like Snoop Cat. Snoop Cat. Snoop Cat? You do halftime show after 9 -11. What was that? Was it Bruce Springsteen probably or something? I don't remember that one. I'll look it up. Shakira. Shakira was pretty good. I like Shakira. I think the worst one was probably where they had Britney Spears, NSYNC, I think Aerosmith may have been involved in there. They had like Nelly was there. They liked too much. It was too much one year. Looks like U2 did the one after 9 -11. U2. Okay. U2. Well, I don't like U2. Okay. I've been in a few Super Bowls. So I saw the Snoop one. I was there for that one. And then how many Super Bowls have I been to? Two? Or no, I've been to three because I went to the one I forgot about, Falcon Super Bowl. Lady Gaga was a halftime show of that. So that's a great question, TC. That's a great question. I don't know what to do about that. I don't know what to do about that. Well, I think we were going to go to Berlin and say, we need to talk about this today. We're going to talk about all this today. Okay. People are asking. People are wanting me to come to Germany. Finally, The Rock has come back to Germany. The other one I saw was The Weeknd, The Weeknd, which the halftime show, The Weeknd halftime show was meh. The real life concert of The Weeknd was awesome. So there we go. Win Winnipeg? You want to do this, Winnipeg? Winnipeg, you want to do this? Winnipeg, do you want to do this right now? Look, Winnipeg. People in Winnipeg are great. Love Winnipeg people. Love, love people from Winnipeg. So great. Y 'all stole our freaking hockey team. I'm sorry. I'm not coming. Y 'all stole our hockey team. And what have you done with it? What have you done with it, Winnipeg? Yeah. Y 'all got Winnipeg. We got Winnipeg. Here. That's how it felt. You took our team. Did the Atlanta team move to Winnipeg? Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Several years ago. You know what killed our hockey team was Danny Heatley. Danny Heatley was on the cover of NHL like 2001, whatever year it was. He was supposed to be the greatest hockey, the next Wayne Gretzky, and he came here, and he came here in Atlanta. He was a rookie, I think, or a second year maybe, and he was drunk, driving I believe it was a Ferrari and crashed and killed the guy in the passenger seat, which was another guy on the hockey team, and then we had to ship him out of here. So that was the beginning of the downfall of Atlanta. Very sad story. And, no, we had the Flames earlier in the 70s. I wouldn't lie for that. I don't know. But we love the Thrashers. Thrashers were great. But we miss them. Cobalt Chuck, you stole him from us. Saints Falcons meet up in New Orleans. We'll see. I like going to New Orleans. So, here's, here, we made this incredible video, incredible video. Where is it? Here it is. Well, let's go to the, let's go to videos here.
Scholar Thomas Howard Shares His Sister's Tragic Story
"People watching probably don't know that you have a famous, at least one famous sibling. Can you tell us about Elizabeth Elliott? Yes. Betty, as we called her in the family, is the second oldest of our six children. And it was interesting. She and I in this family of six offspring, she and I had a very intriguing, a very close relationship. We were, she was the second oldest and I was the second youngest, but there was something about the love of words and all sorts of things. I mean, she's most famous for people who don't know for her book Gates of Splendor, I guess is the title. Through Gates of Splendor. About the murder of her husband. Tell us about that. Well, she was married to a chap named Jim Elliott. They both went to Wheaton College together. As did you. Yes. And he was one of five young American men who in 1956, I think it was, they were in mission work in Ecuador, in the Ecuadorian jungle, the Amazonian jungle. And they were trying to make a contact, a friendly contact with a tribe there that are popularly called the Alcas. The Alca Indians. They call themselves Walrani, but most people know them as the Alcas. And these five fellows made a very carefully orchestrated and cautious and hesitant attempt to make a friendly contact with them. And they were afraid of all outsiders, even other Indians. This was in the eastern jungle of Ecuador. And to make a long story short, they, in their attempt to approach the Alca Indians, as they were called, they called themselves Walrani, they were all speared to death, these fellows. They were all killed. Yeah, all five of them. All five of them. I didn't remember that. And your brother -in -law was one of those five, Jim Elliott. That's, you know, you don't hear very much about missionaries being killed these days. It's sort of like a 19th century British joke. But as recently as 1956 this happened,

A Prayer for a House of Harmony
"As believers we know that there is a real spiritual battle going on. And the enemy does not want our households to serve the board. Today we are going to ask him to help us wage war by calling on his knee. Jesus to reclaim any areas were sent and demonic forces have tried to come against us. Let's pray. Jesus. Thank you for the home which you have blessed me with today. Thank you for giving me the gift of shelter. Thank you for the amazing family you have entrusted to me to learn from. Here for and to be refined by into your image. The day I recognize that I am weak. A sinner and a need of your help. I can not serve you on my own. I need your help holy spear. Belt me up to date to live by your ways and not my flesh. Remind me of humility and grace. I pray against the spiritual darkness, which tries to wreak chaos in our home. In Jesus powerful name, I ask that you have removed the work of the enemy as to steal, kill, and destroy. And provide us the fear to the spirit left out to you. Remove the lies and the thoughts that defy. Reunite us in any area in which we have been broken. God, you are the great mender of our mission. Even if the house is a physical mass from our busy lives, help us not to neglect the trueness of our heart. Fill me up by your spirit through pondering your scriptures. You say that all of your scriptures are briefed by you and are useful to me. Give me the ability to choose you over the lesser thing. Help me to cling to you and live out of a place of harmony. I pray that when the enemy sees our family, that he knows we are serving the lord, and we are sealed at the blood of Christ.
1 Samuel 17: 19-36 David and Goliath
"But I probably will tomorrow. Just to let you know, just heads up on that one. Probably say it again tomorrow. But today is day one one zero. I don't know why I'm saying it like that. Day 110. Oh my gosh, you guys, this is the stop for a second. 810. Well done. Phenomenal work. I just, what a gift. Here we are, reading from first Samuel chapter 17, praying, psalm 12. First Samuel chapter 17, David and Goliath. Now, the Philistines gathered their armies for battle, and they were gathered at so called, which belonged to Judah, and encamped between soko and azaka, and FS Damien. And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered, and encamped in the valley of elah, and drew up in line of battle against the Philistines. And the Philistines stood on the mountain on the one side and Israel stood on the mountain on the other side with a valley between them. And there came out from the camp of the Philistines, a champion named Goliath of gath, whose height was 6 cubits and a span. He had a helmet of bronze on his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail, and the weight of the coat was 5000 shekels of bronze, and he had grieves of bronze upon his legs, and a javelin of bronze, slung between his shoulders, and the shaft of his spear was like a weaver's beam, and his spears head weighed 600 shekels of iron and his shield bearer went before him. He stood, and shouted to the ranks of Israel. Why have you come out to drop for a battle? Am I not a philistine and are you not servants of Saul? Choose a man for yourselves and let him come down to me. If he is able to fight with me and kill me, then we will be your servants. But if I prevail against him and kill him, then you shall be our servants and serve us. And the philistine said, I defy the ranks of Israel this day. Give me a man that we may fight together. When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistines, they were dismayed and greatly afraid. Now David was the son of an epithet of Bethlehem and Judah, named Jesse, who at 8 sons. In the days of Saul, the man was already old and advanced in years, the three eldest sons of Jesse had followed Saul to the battle, and the names of his three sons who went to the battle were eliab the firstborn, the next to him, abhinav, and the third shamah. David was the youngest. The three eldest followed Saul, but David went back and forth between Saul to feed his father's sheep at Bethlehem. For 40 days the philistine came forward and took his stand morning and evening. And Jesse said to David his son, take for your brothers and ifa of this parched grain and these ten loaves and carry them quickly to the camp to your brothers, also take these ten cheeses to the commander of their thousand. See how your brothers fare and bring some token from them. Now Saul and they and all the men of Israel were in the valley of Ella, fighting with the Philistines. And David rose early in the morning and left the sheep with a keeper and took the provisions and went as Jesse had commanded him, and he came to the encampment as the host was going forth to the battle line, shouting the war cry. And Israel and the Philistines drew up for battle army against army and David left the things in charge of the keeper of the baggage and ran to the ranks and went and greeted his brothers. As he talked with them, behold, the champion, the philistine of gath, Goliath by name, came up out of the ranks of the Philistines and spoke the same words as before, and David heard him. All the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were much afraid. In the men of Israel said, have you seen this man who has come up? Surely he has come up to defy Israel and the man who kills him, the king will enrich with great riches and will give him his daughter and make his father's house free in Israel. And David said to the men who stood by him, what shall be done for the man who kills this philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel. For who is this uncircumcised philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God? And the people answered him in the same way, social it be done to the man who kills him. Now eliab his eldest brother heard when he spoke to the men, and elie abs anger was kindled against David, and he said, why have you come down? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness, I know your presumption, and the evil of your heart. For you have come down to see the battle. And David said, what have I done now? Was it not but a word? And he turned away from him toward another, and spoke in the same way, and the people again answered him as before. When the words which David spoke were heard, they repeated them before Saul, and he sent for him. And David said to Saul, let no man's heart fail because of him. Your servant will go and fight with this philistine. And Saul said to David, you are not able to go against this philistine to fight with him. For you are but a youth, and he has been a man of war from his youth. But David said to Saul. Your servant used to keep sheep for his father, and when there came a lion or a bear and took a lamb from the flock, I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if it arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him. Your servant has killed both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised philistine shall be like one of them, seeing that he has defied the armies of the living God. And David said, the lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this philistine. And Saul said to David, go. And the lord be with you. Then saw clothed David with his armor. He put a helmet of bronze on his head and clothed him with a coat of mail, and David belted on his sword over his armor, and he tried in vain to go, for he was not used to them. Then David said to Saul, I can not go with these, for I'm not used to them. And David

"Switching against Kevin Durant when they start using him as a screener in a volume, or that gets a little dicey. Switching me some plumbing on Devin Booker, that gets a little dicey. Covington hasn't played in quite a long time. The sons have a lot of answers. That's the benefit of Kevin Durant. He's a walking answer. He's got an answer for everything. The answer, of course, is just going to be a combination of all this. You can't give these guys one look over and over again. But what you definitely can't do is give them a drop coverage look over and over again unless your guards are so airtight getting over screens that those jumpers become hard. And the clippers have been very, very good at that, but tomb is like hooking his way around 8 and Terrence Mann is just a maniac on defense, Kauai is on screen able. Like they have the tools to do that. And that's where the battle is really interesting. It's only been two games. But I looked this up today and I had to double check it. The sun's in those two games. 60% of their shots are mid range shots. 60% are either floaters or long twos. To put that in perspective, the highest share of mid range shots for any team in the regular season was 40% of attempts. The suns are at 60%. Only 22% of their shots have been threes, actually 22.9. Let me be precise. The lowest share in the regular season was 30%. Only 17% of their shots have come in the restricted area, the lowest share in the regular season, which was them, was 26%. They are the clippers right now are forcing the suns to test the limits of the idea that they can just win with mid range shooting. And I already had thought the sun to test the limits of whether they could win with mid range shooting like two seasons ago and last season two. This is a new extreme and it's just going to be interesting to see if the suns can find ways to get different kinds of shots if it even matters. And if the clippers play some schemes like blitzing, for instance, that might unlock different kinds of shots. Like if you blitz, you risked 8 and eating at the rim, you missed kick out passes for threes. You miss kick out drive, kick another three. The clippers just have been more competitive and have more answers than I thought they did. And it will be very interesting to see how they come out defensively in game three in LA and although it feels like the sun's now have momentum and maybe they do. Maybe this is that sea change game. Clippers now have home court, the clippers have some confidence, they're tough, they're Gritty, they're kind of just stocky muscle is giving the sons some issue and at the very least they are exhausting the hell out of the Phoenix stars. The minutes, the minutes are piling up fast for guys who are aging and somewhat vulnerable to injury in Chris Paul and Kevin Durant. And the rest of the Western Conference is at the very least tipping their cap to the clippers for that. But this has been a much better series than I thought. Those are my game three takeaways for the games last night. Spears was awesome on the warriors and tonight we have heat bucks, see if Giannis plays nuggets wolves, which was a complete nuggets walk over in game one and Lakers grizz, we'll see if ja plays and we will talk to you later in the week.

"The clippers who have been credited to the clippers. Like massive credit to the clippers, I did not see this kind of nip and tuck war coming with Paul George out. Paul George, who can guard all the key players on the suns to degree that any of them can actually be guarded in Devin Booker could not be guarded last night, 38 points rain and fire from everywhere. I just didn't see it. I just didn't see it coming. And the clippers have come out, they have settled on a non Paul George rotation, lots of Terrence man, lots of norm Powell, lots of Eric Gordon, they've thrown curveballs at the suns, starting with Kauai on ayton to start the series in zubots on Tori Craig, and then as soon as you get comfortable with that phew, we're moving things around. Eric Gordon's garden drain, then Russ is guarding drain. Here comes Kauai on Duran. Here comes a different scheme. Here comes his own defense, hard to get in rhythm. Hard to get in rhythm. And Russ? Well, first of all, Kauai, Kauai is just in total playoff God mode and that's what they need to have any chance in this series. They can not afford even an average to below average Kawhi game. They won't win that game. And he's been unbelievable, won the first game for him and game two. There was a possession last night in game two. Where I just started laughing watching it. I think it was like two minutes left in the first quarter of the sunset, a pin down for Kevin Durant. He was right under the rim, and I think 8 and set the pin out. It's the same play at the clippers run for Kawhi all the time. And Kawhi was on Durant, and Deandre ayton maybe it was beyond well, I don't know, whoever it was. It was a large person. Setting a large person screen and Kawhi Leonard just like the matrix, just avoided it. Like neo, somehow didn't get screened. It reminded me of Tony Allen, used to tell me, I would say, how do you avoid these screens? And he's like, you just don't get screened. But how? You just don't get screened. Zack, you just don't get screened. Like the question was just fundamentally unsound to Tony Allen. He didn't understand how people could be curious how you avoid screens. You just do it. And then Kevin Durant caught the ball and Kawhi Leonard just stuck out his left hand and took the ball from him and dunked and I wrote in my notes. Kawhi. And then Russ, I will continue to eat crow on Russ. I did not see any of this coming. I thought it would be not a disaster. I just didn't think it would work. I didn't think it would work well enough for as many minutes as it has worked. And he was sensational again last night in helping the clippers stay in the game and they made Phoenix urn that game. And of course they earned it with one long two after another, which is their secret weapon. Their secret sauce. They only took 24 threes after taking 19 in game one. That's got to be enough, but for now it's been enough to even the series and you saw down the stretch, they found zubots no matter who he was guarding. We don't care if you're on Craig, ayton, whoever, we're bringing you into the pick and roll. And we're going to see how you do. And sometimes it came out pretty high to try and stop those jumpers, but even then he's not he's not trapping, he's not even quite at the screen and then he's backpedaling, and once you backpedal your toast. And sometimes he was just too low and Paul. With a redemption game at Booker and KD, just rain, jumper after jumper over him, and we're going to see if that's one of those games where it's a sea change and the sons have settled in and figured it out and found the pressure point for which the clippers have no counter or if the clippers can tighten up that pressure point just enough to bend the math in their favor and I'll explain that in a second or if they have another card to play. We saw them play a little zone. Will they blitz with zubots and just say, we're not letting you take these jumpers, we're gonna make you hit Tory Craig on the roll. We're gonna make you hit 8 and on the roll and make those guys beat us four on three. Now that is a dicey proposition when two of the four are gonna be some combination of Devin Booker Chris Paul and Kevin freaking Durant. But the other two of the four will be Deandre ayton, who needs to have if the clippers do this needs to really punish it. And Tori Craig and Joshua kogi or whatever bench roulette wheel, whatever that wheel settles on for Monty Williams who has no consistent here's TJ Warren by TJ Warren. Here comes Damian Lee by Damian Lee. Terrence Ross, you play four minutes a game one year out. We'll see if the clippers go that blitzer out. The suns have the tools to exploit that. Do you dust off Robert Covington and go 5 out and switch a little bit more? Do you try to switch with plumlee? Switching against Kevin Durant when they start using him as a screener in a volume, or that gets a little dicey. Switching me some plumbing on Devin Booker, that gets a little dicey.
Adultery, Questions, Answers: Jesus Is Put to the Test
"Leads me to the story and then the lesson for today, if you would. And that is that in the Bible in the New Testament, which is the gospels for which Matthew Mark Luke and John first for John is the fourth. John wrote the gospel narrating Jesus life. And if you're not from a Christian background, this is the record of what Jesus did historically did while he was here. In his ministry. In one of those stories, he is confronted with a group of Jewish leaders in Jewish citizens and an interesting situation. They were trying to catch him. How many times in today's world and for those of us who do interviews a lot for those of us who are on media, and even in normal life, you're going to have there's a lot more of the gotcha mentality out there. There's much more of the gotcha thought that I'm going to ask a question. I've had to reporters who would do this. They would ask questions to get you. They were got you questions. As you grow in doing interviews, you learn to take those questions and turn them around. You don't take them on the face value. You answer. The question is what you want to answer, and you don't accept the premise of a got to your question. But if you're not used to it, it can catch you and you get thrown off. Jesus in his ministry, he was teaching, and he was doing administering these leaders brought to him. His spears and John chapter 8. So if you're in the scripture, you go to John, the book and John, if you have a Bible for a return to the new test, but you can find it there, find John. Look for the chapter. And it's the very first one through 11. And this is where he says in the Jesus was it the amount of olives in dawn appeared, and people did gather around him to teach, but then there was these teachers of the law, the pharisees who came there, and they brought a woman who was caught in adultery. Okay, this is a story that if you've been in charge, you understand the story. If you've not been in charge, this was a breaking of the law in this time and they brought this lady, which I think is always interesting. I always hope one of this out in my years of pastoring and mentoring is where, to my mind, where was the man in this situation? And it was left out, but as you look at it here, the woman was brought and the, they stood her before the group, and before Jesus said. Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of military, and in the law, Moses, commanded us to stone such one. Now, what do you say? And they were using this scripture actually says they were using this as a trap. In order to base this or accusing him because they were wanting to see what he said.

"I honestly think you guys saved my life. I am feeling something and it's on both ends of the fence here. Same. I am. I feel what she's saying because no one deserves the work as hard as Britney Spears has worked and not enjoy her own money. But when you start doing things that make us question your sanity, then it's like with somebody needs to help you. And I don't know the situation so much where her father had to step in and for as long as he did. Right. I feel like they should have checked in, like, hey, you cool. You know, but I think because of the relationship how the history of it is, they helped out against her and that she was not able to be able to control and be able to speak up. For sure. I think that that's a 100% right. I think the duration of the conservatorship the fact that it lasted as long as it did was the real problem. There should have been a conservatorship in place when her sanity was in question, and people wanted to protect her and make sure that her safety was number one. And then there should have been a three year let's reevaluate. And then a two year let's reevaluate. The 13 years of just complete lockdown strict rules with everything like, that's not helping the situation. Can you have nothing? She literally had no freedom in her life. And people get so hot and bothered, especially with you and I think like, oh, we weren't team free Britney. We were team safe, Britney and we wanna make sure that that continues now that she has nothing. For sure. Now, you know, these are her claims. We have reached out to the other side and no one's coming to back. I will say I was down for this and then she mentioned that she couldn't buy a candle. And I don't want to be the ghost of Christmas past. And I don't like to bring up some oh. But I remember 2020 when she burned down her gym with one of those Yankee candles,.

"So this is a woman with a lot of revenue streams coming in and of course right off the top you've got agents that take about ten percents and she's got a pay taxes on it so we even after all of that kicks in and now she's paying all these additional fees brittany's really getting hammered and so i would make the argument here that when we look at a client like this a corporate trustee in a revocable trust could be a good solution for someone who is not mentally unable and and i can't give any insight on the britney situation but i think is advisors. We need to look at what other options are in our toolbox and so corporate trustees are often a good solution. Irrevokable trust document absolutely. I'm just a completely clear. The fees in such that. We're talking about now are all in the realm of legitimacy. This is just the normal fees of hiring professionals out of the cost. But you know that we're not saying but it could be even worse. We don't know anything about this in brittany specific case but the more people you have involved the more hand you have on your brittany who is a very valuable asset. The more likely that there is a bad actor involved somewhere and then you're increasing the risk of that as well. Well that's the thing about estate planning.

"Court system specifically you said there's a lot of inside dealing and cronyism and re players where you get the same judges and the same lawyers. In many cases enacting conservative ships and guardian ships that are fine and allow a family to look out for the best interest of a person but also in a fair number of cases that results in these lawyers taking a fat cut of someone's assets as those assets fall into the hands of someone other than the conservative. so i think this requires a watchful. I think part of the solution to these problems is going to be policy. Change and more scrutiny on the hill were already seeing that we've seen calls for hearings about conservatorship abuse on both sides of the aisle. And i think that's the right avenue. I think there need to be some tough conversations about where we draw the line in terms of someone's right even to behave in a way that is harmful to themselves. You know in california. It is within the probate code that you will be represented by somebody. In britney's case they went straight to court appointed counsel but the promo code is really a differ greatly state to state. There are some states where you are not guaranteed by any means access to counsel whatsoever. The rules vary place by place but to me the key that the legislative the policy lever involves language around the right to counsel of your choosing which when it's there as it sensibly is in california it is often not applied aside and in many states that doesn't exist at all and to me that and the sort of data gathering stuff that elizabeth warren and company have called for that to me is where it lies. I think that that is such an important point to take away from all of this. And it's often overlooked regardless of whether you buy into the arguments of britney spears conservatorship defenders regardless of the factual questions about her mental health. It is very hard to come up. With an argument that justifies the repeated refusal to allow her to seek her own outside counsel who could have worked with someone with genuine mental health struggles. They're just has not been a valid argument that i have seen in all the conversations around this and if that problem can be solved on a policy level in this wider universe of conservatorship abusive people can have more ready access to their own counsel in cases where they are high functioning enough to want to enter seek that..

"Is that for years they are treated in a way that deprives them of control and that that can set up a situation. That is ripe for this kind of a legal mechanism to formally robbed them of control and that then once they get into it for a whole variety of reasons it can be hard to get out of but one of them is that they have been trained and conditioned in a way where. They don't necessarily advocate for themselves. In the way that you or i might in this situation if we were placed into it tomorrow so one thing that i suspect that we will be hearing going. Forward is some sort of factual dispute and brittany's testimony right her in her account of her life in court and i suspect that there will be some sort of hovering argument that if something was untrue in what she said then that nullifies the argument right that if she is not correctly and accurately representing every bit of reality than there is actually reason for all of this in place. Exactly as it was. But one thing that i've been thinking about the last few days is let's say every single word of that was a lie. That's still shows to me. Sufficient narrative control and mental sophistication as to make a pretty airtight argument against the structure. And i want to say that her her elaborate planning starting in two thousand eight to try to get these lawyers to try to meet them to try to communicate with them to try to go to her friend. Get him to read a letter on live. Tv pleading her case writing and in the third person about herself so that her friend could read it on live tv. I mean this is indicative of a level of composure and narrative control. Even that is so different from the story that has been put forth by her camp. That i don't know it's been a little shocking to meter. Remember how sophisticated these covert ops. She was running in two thousand. Eight word you know how little sophistication ought to be required right to be free in america. You don't need to be sophisticated. You can blow it all right. You can spend it all. This is america. We throw people to the wolves. What are we talking about here. This is america. You are not safe from your own decisions. We built a whole big country around the idea that you are not safe from your worst decisions or even mediocre decisions or even best decisions and bad luck so why on earth this one per anyway now. I'm very upset before. I'm going to cut that out. Thank you both for your time before. I let you go what happens now. I think there's two pieces of this. One i think you've kicked off a conversation about the britney spears conservatorship While she helped kick it off. And i think you've helped elaborate on that conversation but there's also this larger now debate around how conservative ships work outside of people with enormous fame and celebrity and money What where does this go from here. This was one of the reasons why i think jianye both felt this was such an important story and we both kind of went deep in conversations that were not just about britney spears but were with legal disability rights experts talking about this as an underregulated corner of the court system and a set of legal mechanisms that can be exploited to take advantage of the vulnerable. We talked to a disability rights lawyer who says that in the most extreme of these kinds of cases of conservatorship abuse. Uc families adopt a strategy of isolating a person medicating them liquidating their assets. So this can get to a very dark place. It can be very hard to escape from for conservatives that want to assert the rights to process as britney spears is clearly struggling to do and we talked to people familiar with the l. a..

"If you are tough then it's your fault for coming off so tough the thought you could take it or something. There are things that we have heard about. Britney spears every i i would say this has been an absolute from everyone. We've ever talked to about her. Everyone says she is deeply deeply deeply hardworking. You know that she has this unparalleled work and that she is genuinely sweet. And kind. And the way that those two things have been used against her in the structure. You heard the testimony and in something that we heard you know going back to people who are around her. Since she was sixteen instantly she became such a valuable asset that it would be letting so many people down to take a break even for a second it was not even allowable starting at the very beginning that she has taken genuine pleasure and artistry in performing but that she understood it as sort of a mandate but that is what she does because she's britney spears her success was so sudden and she was so valuable and she was so monetize the bull that that itself was wielded against her as if it made her vulnerable in a way that was analogous to the way disabilities make people vulnerable where she was worth so much that she had to be robbed of decision making power in order to protect the asset. That was her life and in a way she's been made to pay for other people's possible or actual desire to use her where that has been used against her to say you are so valuable and so vulnerable because of your outside talent and charisma that we must iraq this structure around you. That does not give anyone not even you the person generating this value the ability to endanger that in any way or for any reason. Even if that reason is i would simply like to stock right going back and talking to quote paris hilton in this article. We talked to a lot of friends who were with her. At the peak of white hot team that she lived through in the early two thousands and the way they talk about kerr already being controlled and shelter to the point. Where you know paris hilton. We report Taught her to use google. What google was. You know we talked to friends who said we don't know if she was ever allowed access to a computer. It seemed like she was sort of cut off from the world. It's run through this whole conversation. This theme of if you deprive someone of their rights for this long if you shelter someone for this long and erect these walls around someone. It's going to change to some extent. Someone's actual capacity to make decisions for themselves and certainly their expectation of themselves. And i think that's what you're hearing in her testimony where it's sort of pleading and still in some ways for those of us on the outside of this kind of an arrangement shockingly obedient on you know. She was angry and lucid and seemingly correctly a furious but still living within this structure and the precursor of many many years of other types of control and that is one way in which her case is actually not unique because although that early control came in brittany spears case from fame and wealth what you see in disability rights disputes all the time with conservatives.

"She talked about being medicated against her will. Being given lithium being given mood altering drugs that can have a cumulative effect that if not applied correctly can be adverse to someone's mental health. So there are real questions about the mental health condition. she's in now and nevertheless regardless of where that factual question lands there are grounds to criticize the philosophy and the law behind this structure. One of the things that is most conceptually maddening about the conservatorship structure is that many people involved in disability rights of spoken about. Is that being officially deemed incapacitated. It has an inherently self-perpetuating quality. Right if i was essentially deemed unworthy of making any mistakes in the future after having made a series of mistakes in the past. That would do things to my own sense of capacity and my own internal ability to you were robbed of avenues to use your capacity informally separated from it. Then you lose access to that capacity. I think that's a really good point. There was an experiment in psychology years. Ago where. I believe they were students or maybe graduate students. As part of this experiment they pretended to have some form of mental illness. And they fully manifested there. They did a performance of having mental illness to get committed in some way but that once they were committed they did nothing to portray that mental illness anymore but several of them could not get out all of the activities. They did while they were considered mentally. Ill were attributed to mental illness. When they would take notes for in their journal just to keep track of what was going on while they were being committed. It was called like you know writing behavior. they were manifesting writing behavior. One thing that was striking to me in the brittany testimony itself. She says i want changes going forward. I deserve changes and it struck me as such an incredible understatement right. She describes horrific abuse. She describes being denied her reproductive freedom. She describes being basically enslaved by this conservatorship in by her father and she still comes to kind of plead her case. Like not recognizing just how serious these allegations are and just how obvious it is that you would just herve change You know in two thousand seventeen. You wrote something. After the weinstein story was broken it was about how predators entangle and contaminate the best quality. People have right and obviously. I don't want to compare the kinds of abuse. Men in terms of how britney spears herself has done both the misogyny of the press and media and the false narratives that you both described so eloquently in the article the difference between what was actually going on when she shaved her head what was actually going on when the police came versus how it was reported plus how her father has treated her right. It seems like so much of this. Is that the family. Believed that britney spears trusted people. She shouldn't and that that was some deep sin. Some horrible things. She needed to be protected against that. That are being kind. And being trusting was something wrong with her that she had to be stopped from experiencing Did you find an investing. This story that in some sense that part of why this has gone on so long. Is that the misogyny from the press and from her own family directed at her had worked that she had come to kind of accept this diagnosis of of what was wrong with her. I remember writing that about the weinstein story that when someone takes advantage of you or abuse you the worst thing about it as you said. Is it in tangles. All the good things about you. If you're really sweet then it's your fault for being sweet to them..

"We're resigning because we were under the impression that this was voluntary. Those were the arguments made to us but it does seem like all of these people like her sister is going on instagram. Saying if she wants to go to mars or end the conservatorship. That's fine by me. I love all people whether they're black white or blue. You know i. I see this debate unfolding in. It's a little bit like we're inside the logic of this conservatorship still right. Like what the fuck are we talking about right. This is a performer who has an ongoing career. She gets to decide how that money is spent. We have the right to blow our money however we want. We have the right to sleep with male models who may be one a career whatever it is whatever. They're claiming there just seems to be a denial of reality even now the way in which this structure which is so sort of like all encompassing lee maddening the way that the cultural paradigm surrounding britney spears has grafted almost exactly onto its framework about. How do we think you should live. You know what do we want out of you. What we want from you is for you to be blonde and performing and hot and constantly making money and smiling at the camera and doing everything that the public wants from you and continuing to make money and being an amazing mother and never making a mistake. Great the way in which these cultural expectations that have shaped and constricted and flattened and taken over her life from the second. She got famous the way that her life has always been governed by what other people thought was in her best interest and what they wanted from her and the way that that has gotten completely conflicted with something that you know people we talked to says it happens in conservative ships in real life as you were saying we don't operate under the framework of our choices must be in our best interest. We have the right to make bad decisions and those bad decisions often become foundational to any good ones. We make in the future right. We we only learn how to make good decisions by fucking up in the past. We don't learn anything unless we're able to write and brittany has always starting culturally and now through this legal framework then bound by what other people think is in her best interest and we have seen how corrosive that idea is starting from the way that was grafted onto a seventeen year old. That you have to be hot but also virginal but also you know ironically perfect and your body to all of these things the way that these expectations have arguably never actually served her human interest rate and only ever served profit for other people mainly men around her is one of the darkest and status parts of the story.

"Sam ingham seems to have met britney may be two days after the court ordered conservatorship had been placed upon her that her right to have a five day notification period had been waived it seems like his representation of her was so inadequate that she you know. We talked to so many people who said that for the next year and a half. She was essentially nonstop trying to get another lawyer and there were three lawyers that came into the picture. All of whom were effectively thrown out on the basis of brittany spears has been found to be incapacitated and she does not have the capacity to hire you as the lawyer. And so it's this unbreachable a catch twenty two when you're in. This is something that i've been bringing up. Is that the kind of conservatorship that britney's under a probate conservatorship. It's not even for people who are having mental health. Crises in california. That's a different kind of conservatorship called the l. p. s. conservatorship and the probate conservatorship is very specifically for people. Who will not get better for whom that is sort of an absolute certainty whether by age or terminal condition or something like that but there are plenty of people with disabilities who have been placed in the position. That britney's in the lawyer that gave us that murderer quote famously broke up. One of the most high-profile conservatorship cases in the country. Before this a woman named johnny hatch. Who has down syndrome and was placed under conservatorship after an accident but anyway many people with disabilities have found themselves in this position where formerly deemed incapacitated. They lose any avenue to prove or use their capacity at all. There's something so strange about the kind of pushback you hear from whether it's anyone representing the consider ship or or from this attorney or from larry rudolph the manager. Who resigned today. This idea that like there are these very specific arguments made about the specific set of facts. But then you step back. We hold on a second. This is an international pop star performing regularly. that is high level work. That is somebody using a great many faculties every single day performing going out on stage meeting fans doing all of these kinds of high functioning activities and yet she has denied the basic rights to kind of control her own destiny as she said in her own testimony you know denied her reproductive freedom tonight any kind of to choose to have a family in looking at this conservatorship issue. Did you find any examples anywhere of someone under a conservatorship having this level of employment of ongoing kind of career activity anywhere ever the experts. We talked you're definitely founded unusual. Mean britney spears test the outer limits of the kinds of people to whom this extremely restrictive type of conservatorship as jia points out should be applied and so we are in some respects in kind of untested territory where we have seen after article of rudolf. Step down now. Ingram stepped down in him filed paperwork requesting that a new court appointed counsel be put in place. And so it's sort of anyone's guess. Because this is such an idiosyncratic case how this is going to play out at this point and weather britney spears will be allowed any autonomy in finally choosing her own attorney for instance or whether the weight of the sames re behind the scenes diagnoses that defenders of the conservatorship invariably point to will continue to prevent her from doing that. Yet one thing that. I i guess bessemer trust which was overseeing the finances on behalf of the conservatorship. They're claiming a we're withdrawing..

"Dot gov and we're back joining us today to new yorker writers and new york times bestselling authors who just published a bombshell investigative piece about britney spears conservatorship nightmare. Jia tolentino and ronan farrow. Thank you both for being here. Thank you for having to be here. You had to pull the strings to get on this show all right. Yeah we were your weird half. You're in the hallway. I'm in here. thank you for. Sgx thank you for being here for this to be here. It's there's a serious topic. Obviously but i've never interviewed ronin and someone else so this is like a urine extremely odd place inside of this dynamic. Let me just dive right in. So britney spears lawyer pointed by the court samuel ingham. The third filed a motion to resign. As her attorney in her testimony. Brittany said ingham has been scared for me to come forward and it sounds like she as she describes it didn't know her basic rights. What do you make of ingham's role in this conservatorship as an advocate for britney spears in she called into this hearing and the lawyers representing the conservatorship immediately tried to suggest that the room should be cleared. If sensitive topics arose that the transcript should be sealed and she said no. I want to be heard and then as she got to talking she released suggested some allegations about the way in misrepresented her. That are seriously problematic for any attorney as an attorney myself. You never wanna hear a client. Say i was not advised of my basic right to get out of this situation or avenues to terminate it. So what we've seen in the leaks around. His departure is sources familiar with his thinking. Air quoting that implying that he is quite mad about this that he's defiant in suggesting that he did advise her in the ways that he needed to. But you know what i found when we dug into transcripts is it seems like there was a situation where in was chummy at times with the judge on this case and where there were conversations were in fact at times they joked about not telling spears things. There's an exchange that the times first reported a while back where the judge ingham talk about not telling britney that she can get married if she wants. So you do sort of see a pattern. That seems to suggest that spears's take on. This has something to it and i think that that would be alarming to any lawyer and prompt any lawyer to want to get the hell out of dodge. There's one piece of it which is just was this lawyer doing an adequate job of representing britney spears or did you have other kinds of entanglements and then there's this larger question about the rights of prison in a conservative ship. Even when those rights are being represented faithfully one thing you say and the piece is britney could have been found holding an axe and severed heads. Saying i did it and she would still have had the right to an attorney but under a guardianship. You don't have the same rights as an axe murderer. It's also strange to me that this is a court appointed attorney. Because she's a wealthy person able to afford her own attorney right. You talk a little bit about the rights that people under conservative don't have. This is the only. I think the only corner in the legal system where you can have a court appointed counsel that you then we'll pay the maximum for sam. Ingham has been five hundred twenty thousand dollars a year which is more than britney spears often claimed as her living expenses and if this strikes you know it's extremely unusual. It doesn't make sense to people when they hear about it right that the only situations in which the court appoints council for you as if you're unable to britney is obviously someone who's been able to and not just that somebody who from the beginning you know..

"A britney and any of this agitation from her about ending the conservative shit boy. That really seems like he's the one instigating her. So i think britney is romantic partners and her romantic life is interestingly is like very much so front and center of the powers that be in the conservative ship. I've been struck by that throughout as well because going back to the trae wig thing you know to your the tabloids tell it he was made co conservative because he was going to be the one on set with her at x-factor factor. Everyday that jamie for whatever reason didn't wanna be there. She didn't want him there but he was gonna be the sort of babysitter while she's doing live. Tv basically and then as liz says you see this flare up around david lucado. There's some some drama. He's sort of shuttled from the whole arrangement. They try to get a restraining order against him and even now with her current boyfriend. You've seen him on instagram. Anti jamie spears stuff. He's obviously been very supportive of her. She mentioned him a lot throughout her speech in court last week. I want my boyfriend to be able to drive me in his car. We want to have kids. I need to get this birth control device so they have conveniently it seems in trying to keep the conservative replace often used boyfriends both to their advantage as part of the business arrangement but also when convenient as a sort of boogeyman to blame any agitation on her part on whoever she's dating at the time even in the context of this most recent britney statement a lot of the pushback that she was registering had to do with performance had to do with touring and to do with the presentational aspect of her job. But it's a very different component of the work then sitting in the studio working in that context doing doing recordings etc and it did make me wonder the degree to which she felt friction in those spaces as opposed to being out in the world in having to kind of put a face on. You don't have to put a face on when you're sitting in a studio. I mean sort of but not in the same way so just made me wonder how different those two those two scenarios were something. That's kind of hiding in plain sight as the content of our albums. I mean there's a lot of songs were she's talking about. Gimme me more being trapped. She often has imagery of herself in chains. It is a little bit like she's been telling us this for a long time when you look at her work. It's so funny to think about that because you can imagine you know if she is and i've heard stories over the years about her having a sort of savant like mine where she'll hear a beat or a reference track you know from another songwriter and say like oh. That's the one. I want that one. You do wonder if she was drawn to these tracks both that she was writing with other people and giving input on but then also ones that were presented to her where she likes this theme of control and an about being cage and that tracks even before the conservative ship. And i think you see a lot of that with any popstar but especially a child up star about who owns me. Is it me or is it my audience or is it my business to that point. You know we talked a lot about jamie. We talked a little bit about samnang on the lawyer. What do you feel based on your reporting..

Like i've been okay the past two years. I did it because of my pride. And i was embarrassed to share what happened to me but honestly who doesn't want to capture their instagram enough light. Do you guys understand why britney it seem like she was hunky dory impeaching absolutely. I think exactly what she just said. I feel like instrument first of all. This is like the debate about instagram. Right it's like how authentic is it. How real is everybody is what people showing. You is that authentic. I just feel like it's one of those things where you need to find a happy balance. And i think britney was going through stuff that none of us can even imagine in our wildest dreams and i think that was probably an escape for her to be able to just dance and put up some fun videos and not constantly reminded about the reality that she has been living in thirteen years percents. You probably did feel like people are not gonna believe me well and i feel like it's a weird litmus test that we have to go back in and say oh she's well. She's acted this way on instagram. As if that's like indu into everyone's lives no. Nobody really knows what goes on behind grams per one hundred but its survival like we all do. We are all surviving doing the pandemic hundred percent. I look at some of these celebrities who were posting just a while ago father's day you know best ad in the world love you. I guess you don't know he's not you just want to make sure that fifteen hundred dollars a month gets deposited and he keeps a cool. Yeah we all do it. We never i mean look at my job. Sometimes it's a headache and a half but on instagram. I love my job all the

"Way she was treated in the media like in the way the way it happened the the lead up and then the drop and all that and even like the allegations of mental illness is so crazy the similarities and the one thing that i that i realized through. This is that more than anyone else. That's currently famous right now. Britney spears and the why would this is why we're still talking about her. She has a similar vulnerability that that marilyn monroe did. Because if you look at the other girls. Madonna has zero vulnerability beyond saying he's not vulnerable. The hurt contemporaries christina aguilera's not vulnerable at all. It's like britney spears was cellphone or of all it like 'attaches everybody attached to her. I do you know what i mean. I can't say that in those interviews where she was being asked very personal questions about how whether it was the paparazzi was upsetting her. Her relationship was or how people were viewing her or how governors were governors wives. Or whatever saying shooter she was breaking down like legitimate tears in a way that that should be happening in therapy. She should be processing that stuff privately with the therapist rather than in an interview one hundred percent. I would like say this is. This is how i know. i'm true. Isn't super fan. Casey hair super britney britney the info guy says yes and he goes on to say she. She's the new marilyn monroe and judy. She's remind me of judy too much. But she reminds him Monroe she's pretty and blonde and there are a lot of other similarities to they. Both developed this this publicity monster that just grew and then lost control of it like it was out of control where like you know it was. It was constant to i will say that marilyn monroe's was bigger and she was more More what's the word she was more. She had a broader audience. Like everyone like because it was more teenage. i feel like with brittany than it was with maryland. They they both have that same mobbing by the paparazzi and then the everything else and then they had the same turn from their own people where they would talk about their mental health issues and stuff like that. They got thrown on the both got thrown under the bus. The thing that is different. Here's the difference is is that maryland. Had nobody britney had. Our family chat some support that came along and they did the conservative. Who knows like in brittany does have the mental problems that they're talking about. Who knows if she would still be alive or what. What would have happened to her if she would have gone the same way as marilyn monroe. I believe that marilyn monroe's murdered so it might not have been the same thing but we know more today that we know more about mental health. Stay and people like there was more discussion like back in the time of marilyn monroe considered a doper or on drugs. There was no sympathy was like a doper. She's on drugs like grouse. Get rid of her. At least when it was happening to brittany there was discussion of of you know mental health and stuff like that at least like the court stepped in and did whatever they did. Yeah one thing i. This is not related in any way but it made me think of it and maybe people that were big fans of britney back in the day can.

"And and i think the the first thing that i've seen people start to throw a lot of shade. Ed mcmahon over Was her star search. Appearance and i understand why You know because you know here you are. I mean again context in time. This is the ninety s Probably early to mid if i recall correctly And you know. He asked her about whether or not she has a boyfriend. That sort of thing And everybody was kind of getting all up on that. And like ed. Mcmahon was kind of like america's grandpa. And i hate saying that kind of stuff America's dad was bill cosby in that went horribly wrong But but i didn't read into it. What other people reading into it. Well then actually had. Oh i would i just. The clip was gross. Now looking back with the context. I have watching it ten years ago. What i thought that probably not our find it. Well now you've done episodes on jeffrey epstein right and it's just a goes to it's like it's just a warm up to what she's going to later in her what she's I heard her ear. And it's just how you treat girls to women well and i think one of the things. They pointed out that. I thought was really really cool. Was that one of the very first thing she did on when she finally got a deal was to come back to that little town And go get ten thousand dollars in hundred dollar bills and just run around giving them to people. Yeah there she had said was like it wasn't her saying like i'm britney spears and handing it out. She was just saying merry christmas. Like being very humble and just wanting to light help out and you know give people something. You know what i was gonna say about. Edmund band clip. Was that. When i was talking to one of my friends when i was watching this and he had commented that he thought that ed mcmahon was saying like walled. Wouldn't you date me or something. Like that. And i was like i think he was saying am i mean because she said all boys are mean. Yeah yeah and like. I guess like and then when he said it everyone else was like. Yeah that's what i thought too was that they were saying that he was saying. Wouldn't you date me. And i was like i. Am i the only one that night. I didn't take that that way. Okay well because like there was like five of us in a room in four out of five of us said that. They thought that he was saying that he should date her. And i was like. Why would he say that. That doesn't make sense to number one and number two you no one yeah But yeah so. Then you know they go to Basically her first agent And is kind of an interesting story where they you know the the agent says hey You know out of the blue. I get this letter from these parents. Who said they have no idea what to do with this girl on. They know she super talented but they have no idea like how to get into the industry what to do with her. What the helper.
