"And the first thing they think is. Let's greet the day. I think with enough drugs. You can do that. No but i think that there are a lot of people who who wake up. And what am. I going to do an exercise. I gotta eat. I gotta have a cup of coffee. I gotta get my day going. I just wanna make sure that everybody doesn't think i think i'm not feeling so great. Oh no let me call. Don's drug person but i do think that the state of mind that i was consistently in isn't necessarily needed to be no people people get depressed. There is a way of addressing. That all i was excited about was that there was a tool that could address a loop that i was in. And that's the truth about depression. That i understand is that there's a biological loop your brain gets into this section brought to you by pro. Don't take of nursing or pregnant. I could have done it without that and it was a very brief time in my life. I didn't depend heavily on this but it was just exciting to find out that there was another way. Let me ask you about failure and humor right when people fail. I find this fascinating by look back on the great failures quote unquote of my life. Sooner or later you're going to be looking at these things through the lens of humor or at least i do a lot of people do this but when they happen they are game changing and they are powerful and they're awful and you feel like you can't recover so i'm just thinking about the thousands of stories from your hosting days whether it's jumping out of the airplane for the flapping gromit because you wanted to impress the videographer or when you were diving in the ice and the regulator failed it failed that regulator fail right well. It froze up with ice. Oh oh i thought it was a. It was a monarch minor problem. That almost led to a major right. Now how as you get older as one gets older you find that the distance from that sort of tragic feeling. I'll never rebound from this. I'll never get over this to seeing it with a sense of humor. Shortens houston shortens. Yes because i'm personally. I'm in a much more secure place than it used to you know used to be. That was the norm. And everything else aberration now. Now the norm is. I'm pretty secure. And everything kinda goes along and then there's these things that happen so it's pretty easy to to move to a reflective place and say. Oh that was wacky. You know the ironies of life or more recoverable now but they're pretty heavy duty stuff sometimes helped me steve steve. Yes i'm I met see what to say. I took out. I'm going to ask questions eat. All you have to do is just failed as i just came to a screeching quickly recover from this. I just made a ten minute monologue on my my psychological chess had anti-depressants. And we have. We have waking up dad and me. Let's talk about my failures are there. Are there other ones. Maybe that have happened professionally to you. Yeah i would say again. I racked my brain last night thinking about these things. That's funny because you told me yesterday on the phone like that's my life. Now you have to rack your brain. What do you think he's a big shift. Music change key change. What do you think like rain having this conversation now and i know you're not going to run this podcast. That's how i operate. I'm not even recording. I know i know that. Someday you're gonna listen to this and go. Yeah that didn't work out. So well he's my good friend and we don't have to reclaim part of the great. What would i think about. great podcasts. is they're literally conversations. No editing whatever you get you get listening to one. Cal- fuss meant the guy. Who inspired me with larry king of the day and larry king is calling his son like what is noise. What are you doing up there. But nobody wants to know what larry king is thinking. You know if you're interested in. Larry king you wanna know what he's thinking. Let's take a moment here to pause and give a shout out to our sponsors. You're listening to the art of failure. Hey i want to give it a shot up. One of our artists failure sponsors lewis and anna maria who run the food cart just outside of the apple bank under the scaffolding on the northwest corner of amsterdam and seventy third street awesome. People got everything copied sancta santa cruz drink exactly these days. And why are you drinking decaf. He kept his real coffee. That has failed. They've got colors. They got bagels. They got egg sandwiches. They're cheaper the next day. Everything tastes the same and yes. Some of the pastry might be slightly more than two days old but they are always there. They are super friendly. They take cash so check them out. Louise and maria welcome back to the arctic failure. I andrew host steve friedman. Let's get back to discussing failure all right. So speaking of larry king and the age of our fathers Neither whom are alive. What do you think about the perceived or real failure from our perspective about our fathers and how that fuels us to be better. That's good sorry right away. I was like oh. Let me tell you what he did wrong. It's a very interesting thing. you have been a father. I don't have kids. So you know this more viscerally. But i know from my dad. A lot of it was unspoken. it was. It's amazing how much a child fills in the blanks in their relationship with their parent. I think certainly i did. Is i had a very withdrawn dat. Da he was also very perceptibly. A good man. And i knew that from the day i was born and i almost i once asked my dad. Punish me. I said. I said a bad word. You should slap me. And whatever he gave me like a little soft pat on the butt or something like that they just never hit us. That was wrong with them. You hit your. Kim made a very strong sufficient they ask. I also went upstairs and put soap in my mouth and so yeah anyway. He was a really good man who whose actions spoke louder than the words that he probably never ever said because he was so quiet but tatham hearing that there's some there's some exception of failure is there is there when you It's a nature hates the vacuum thing you know and a human beings emotion certainly do okay so your dad so i think that human beings even kids. When there's an absence of emotional connection you will fill that vacuum in with your own answers in your own projections. So i did that with with my relationship with my dad a lot because he was so withdrawn. Did you try to repair that relationships. No later in life with him also. Did you know so you were not. That wasn't a failure part. You were actually trying to fill in the blank. I was trying to make it happen. I always felt like. I was older than my dad. You know i always thought. I always kind of felt a little bit. Like i understood him better than he understood himself which was probably not true at all. It definitely was not true at all but that was my way of dealing with him. You know the had to put myself in sort of upper status with them because there was so little coming from all of this is the source of all the neurosis. I've just explained to you. I'm sure dom is raised quaker. Yes i think that if you went and did some sort of really deep dive big study you would find your jewish. I always wanted to be wild man. I know a little bit. I have a suspicion that the quakers who left england in the sixteen hundreds came to philadelphia and started philadelphia with william penn. I have always suspected that. The first quakers were jews in.

"Hey everybody welcome to the art of failure. I'm your host steve friedman. Thanks for tuning in. Yes this is the art of failure the podcast that explores what it means to fail as a human person we all try so hard not to fail on a daily basis and we also forget on a daily basis. That failure is part of life and that we can use failure as a catalyst for growth and movement towards bigger and better things. Don wild men is fast becoming one of the most recognizable faces in documentary television as host of mysteries at the museum monumental mysteries and greatest mysteries the guy gets around and when he gets to the places that he's getting around to for the travel channel he does things he does big things like spelunker skydiving space expiration scuba tanks and gear tools and devices. And he's done this exploring and getting around his entire career before mysteries wild and served as the intrepid host of history adventure series cities of the underworld where he also explored tunnels and catacombs and crips and bunker systems. He's not a guy who sits still puts his speed up so i'm especially grateful and glad that he did take the time out of his crazy explorations to explore the art of failure for a little while with me. Don freaking wild men with the thing in the background. That's what happens is new york city. It's not a recording studio. It's my living room. And i'm so happy that you're here. Thank you i i want i start off by saying are we failures. Because we're both. I'm holding them and you're wearing reading glasses. I'm not looking at any. But i'm wearing reading. Glasses are is have failed but we continue on what we're at that point in life. Steve where one uses glasses not only to read but to hide from the world. A little bit. You heard the introduction. The man's been around the block. He's been around the world. He's been in front of microphones in front of. Tv's in front of tv's. for years as a host. I met him hundred seventy seven years ago doing a play together in new york city. Yes and we've been friends. I've been saying for those of you who don't know out there if people were listening to this know about my life they don't but don has been a good friend of mine. My best friend for thirty year in my wedding. Say no more. You're in my wedding. Yes we come from a similar background and we've also followed the same path and yet forked off at different places. But we're still sort of. You're the you're my closest friend in terms of my career as well as my life and that's very important so you wanna talk about failure know ours is failure with our. Our friendship is a success story. That's true that's true. But i do have people on this podcast to talk about failure. What it means to them thinking about a couple of things that May or may not have happened to them where you know. I guess you could look at it like this. Didn't work out. But here's what happened. And it's it's your call. It could be a positive turnabout. It could also be a negative but i do think that failure is universal. I think everybody goes through it. I think it's a bad word You can't call the podcast failure. No what are you crazy. I think it's a healthy thing to do. Because you automatically turn a negative into a positive because and that's the point of your story is that every. I'm the perfect guest for this. I know it this thing. Because i default to failure. You asked me to ask myself what events of my life were perceived as failures and then but actually became epiphanies of success right perceived by you received by other yet. It doesn't matter. The the point is that this was a fulcrum moment in my life and it looked like it was going bad and then it went when good right. That's typically what you're looking for. You want just miserable failures. I went to fresh in. I want no uptick. I want everything i want. People vomiting the end of this thing. No of course really. It doesn't matter if you failures failure. If there's a turnaround great. I am so i gave that some thought when you asked me to and it was interesting because my mind went directly to one of i failed at in life and i don't think of myself as a failure. I don't think i am but a few years ago. I was in a therapist office. And i said so i wake up in the morning and i get up in the first thing i feel like is like on the worst. I'm just a minute. I what's wrong with me like those are the first thoughts in my brain. I'm telling this woman. And that wasn't even when i was there to discuss and she at some point maybe a few sessions later said to me. You know that thing that you feel when you get up in the morning and you're like failing miserably that's not normal when you're in a bad place that's depression and i said what and she said. Yeah there's like drugs i can. You can get that. Take care of that problem enemy bills. No she sent me to a psychiatrist. And i went down this path that i never understood happen. Which was you could actually break the cycle of of that feeling of that sort of misery in your head and interrupted which was indeed what had happened. I got into a loop. And i'd been thinking failure a lot in those days. Suddenly i wasn't feeling that way. Thanks to some pharmaceuticals and it was a real real eye-opener that there was a new way of thinking compared to the rest of my life. And so when you asked me to think about this by the way. I don't feel that way now and it's been a great bunch of years afterwards but when you asked me think about it i thought back. When did that start. When did that phenomenon start. Because it was a big factor in my life. And i realized i began to feel that way because never felt like i understood my life strategically. My father and i sat down when i was a kid. And he says. I'm going to teach you how to play chess. And he would get frustrated with me and say dan. You gotta think of a strategy. And i'd be like okay. But how do i think of strategy except i wouldn't ask that. I just assumed that i was wrong. By not being able to think of a strategy so we would play and he would beat me and over and over again in my life. Chess has been miserable experience. Because i have approached at each time thinking i should be able to strategize and admit that. I'm completely incapable of seeing the playing field. The board so it was one of those experiences that has translated over time and been confirmed by other situations. I was not accomplishing. What i wanted to do in our profession and i said i can't live the rest of my life like this so i gotta have a very specific thing. I'm doing and accomplishing. Were failing at. But i gotta know what the game is because this whole wide playing field of the acting profession that we were experimenting with trying to figure out in those days was was too broad and i said here take this handful fills donald play chess and the day that i decided. You know what. I gotta start being myself and understanding that this weakness is not necessarily weakness if you put it into a strong position becoming a tv host. Which is what. I went to suddenly like started getting a lot better I hope that's applicable to somebody's life. The other thing. I'm thinking about coming up here is like all i wanted to do. In life is universally applicable not loved applicable my experience and that which i described to be sort of relatable to people and and useful in some way. But it probably isn't. Oh my gosh. Wow let me just go back to first of all. I believe i don't know. But i think that you're describing. I appreciate your honesty. I think you're describing a lot of people i mean. I don't know that people wake up.

"Incredible journey is only just beginning. It is not for a mega move, an update and another witch hunt has now come to a close the Manhattan D a. Cyrus, Partisan Hack Vance. Has announced he will not charge former President Trump in the investigation of the Trump Organization. Uh, so that is all about allegations of hush money payments and real estate value manipulations, according To a personal lawyer for Donald Trump. So another witch hunt bites the dust. And again, he's got to be the most investigated men in the history of America. Do you think the Chairman Jo would hold up under the scrutiny of such investigations? Of course not. Let's keep all the focus on Donald Trump. Former President Trump not happy with the former attorney general Bill Barr for slapping down his allegations of voter fraud, calling it all Bull Dukie. Responding to a book excerpt from the author and journalist Jonathan Karl, published on Sunday in the Atlantic, Uh former President Trump lashed out of bar describing him as a rhino. Republican in name, only, accusing him of helping to facilitate the cover up the crime of the century. In a statement issued yesterday, quote it's people in authority like Bill Barr that allow the crazed radical left to succeed. He and other rhinos in the Republican Party of being used in order to try to convince people the election was legitimate when so many incredible facts have now come out to show conclusively that it wasn't He said It was a sting. Uh, yeah, It was a stinger. Right? We got stunned the American people. By the way, Tony Shaffer. Colonel Shaffer said the bill Barr disregarded and ignored voter fraud evidence didn't even look at it. So how would you know that It was Bull Dukie if you even look at the evidence in the in the first place. President. Trump also said that uh, radical of New York City and state prosecutors who have let murderers rapists, drug dealers in all forms of crime skyrocket the record levels. Just now they will be releasing hundreds of people involved in violent crime back out on the streets well, without retribution of any kind. The rude they're nasty and totally biased the way they are treating lawyers, representatives and some of the wonderful long term employees and people within the Trump organization. Well, you may want to get him out of New York permanently, then. Don't be the last personnel. New McLaughlin pullout shows that Chairman Jo is slipping and Trump remains strong 80% Of the GOP primary votes support. Where President Trump well, Joe Biden is in the country. Now, voters saying the country is headed in the right direction is dropping, and so are his approval ratings. As well. This is an interesting poll. Vice president, cackling camera. In a head to head matchup. With Donald Trump, according to McLaughlin Associates. Poll. Trump beats Harris 49 to 45% in that poll So already they're beginning to disregard Chairman Jo And start to run polls with Donald Trump heads up against cackle in Camel er, Everybody's saying for our country and for our Children, the best is yet to come. Indeed, it is a long way to go get a lot of big, big fight ahead of us here. And right now we're gonna talk with Steve Friedman of the law offices of Michael A. Freedman. Steven. Good morning. Hey, Sean. Good morning. How you doing? We're doing fine. Thank you. All right. So let's say you're just traveling along minding your business. You're going through a green light you're driving and all of a sudden State owned big state highway dump truck goes through a red light and smashes into causing personal injury. Well, now we're going to talk about the Maryland toward Claims Act, and, um, the act comes into play when the state is going to be a defendant in a personal injury case, so The purpose of the Maryland Tort Claims Act really is to insulate state employees from tort liability if they're acting in the scope of the employment. Um It requires the plaintiff. To submit a written claim to the state treasurer within one year after the injury, So certainly the statute of limitations of three years applies but before even a lawsuit can happen when you're suing the state for personal injury, you have to comply with the notice requirement of the Maryland toward Claims Act so It has to be in writing. You have to put in the right in the in the letter concise statement of the facts. Specific damages and the name and address of the parties. With respect to the Maryland Tort Claims Act. There's a cap on damages. Years ago, it was $200,000. They have now increased that to $400,000 per victim. There's also unfortunately for lawyers, there's a cap on attorney fees, which is 20% of the settlement. And 25% of any judgment. Most of the time. These are a third and if you go to trial, it becomes 40%. So it really does limit the attorney fees. A lot of attorneys don't take Maryland Tort Claims Act because of that. But we are affirmed that certainly works with the Maryland Tort Claims Act all the time. A few examples of tort claims act that I have handled Several years ago, I represented a gentleman who was incarcerated, found guilty of a drug charge and he was murdered while in prison. He was stabbed 69 times. Because guards were very negligent in their security and operation. So we were able to get the max for his family of $200,000. That was the cap years ago. We have represented plaintiffs who have been involved when struck by a Maryland Transportation Authority dump truck. And we had a client. Actually, that fell down at B W I airport because of uneven steps. So the Tour claims Act has all kinds of wide reaching, um, factors and areas and throughout Maryland. So if you've been involved in any accident Give us a call. Let us go to work for you and protect your rights, Sean..

"Hirscher calls and comments coming up. Steve Friedman is on the line with Steven. Good morning. Hey, Sean. Good morning. How you doing? We're doing fine. Thank you. All right. So this morning, I want to discuss Pedestrian accident case which really illustrates the importance of carrying adequate bodily injury and underinsured motorist coverage, and we talk about this a lot on the program. So here the facts of this one Represent a 35 year old mother of two. She was going out. This was two years ago, she was going to Foundry Row, which is a little shopping area in Owings Mills. She was taking up dinner for her kids. She's walking out of the Mission BBQ and she is crossing at a marked crosswalk. She looks both ways she's walking. She's in the middle of the crosswalk and boom. She gets knocked over by a car. The driver of the car. The defendant is irate and yelling at my client who's on the ground thing is my client's fault. Fortunately, good Samaritans and witnesses come to her aid. And they called the police and the defendant ultimately arrested at the scene for disorderly conduct on spelling odor of alcohol, and he still hasn't had a court date yet, but we're assuming that he was under the influence. Regardless, he's not down the Senate Insurance company accept responsibility. My clients taken by ambulance to the hospital. Neck back and right elbow pain. She spent the night at the hospital and then his referred for a course of physical therapy. She does about 4 to 6 months of physical therapy. And all the while she's having trouble playing with their kids. She's she can't drive because of the issues with her neck, and she is referred to an orthopedist and then to a fizz. I interest so really calls for a lot of problems, and this is an otherwise healthy 35 year old never been in any accident before. Turns out the defendant's insurance has 30,000. That's the minimal in Maryland, so we weigh almost have that in medical bills. So we submit that to the defense insurance company, they tend to their policy. And fortunately for us, we have 100,000 and underinsured motorists coverage so That's why we always preach how important it is to have adequate coverage because if our client only had $30,000 and the defendant only had $30,000. That's the most weak and getting in the case so Folks again. Look at your policy. And if you have any questions about your insurance, whether you think it's adequate or not call us because we'll go over your policy at no cost to you. So it's important. You want to protect yourself and you want to protect your family. So We are here for you. 24 73 65 Call it or email us. And we will talk to you next week. Sean. Thank you so much. A man. It's a great story. Great. Listen, thanks again. Appreciate that. Stephen Friedman losses Mykolaiv Freeman For 10 363 68 48 Toll free 1 872 72 of three.

"It's a slow road. I think in that area. When i think of some of the most Successful ceos i think Like if i look at jeff bezos for instance. I think he's. He's probably interrupt he does. He doesn't seek the spotlight much at all. And i i know he From studying him that he has worked a lot on his own. Especially in the early days of amazon. He built that company basically working around the clock in his garage by himself. I would i don't think in it. I think that would drive an extrovert crazy. Yeah so the new book I it's what is it called. It's called leadership guide to others Leadership for introverts is that it's actually officially untitled. But it's coming out in the fall and it's going to be a guide for introverts in leadership so it is really talking about some of the things that we've talked about. How can introverts reach their true ambitions in goals in in corporate world. Especially and i think a lot of people introvert extrovert kind of you. Know we have our dreams and what we wanna do. The level of we want to be the kind of impact we want to have on the business community and for a lot of introverts that can be overwhelming. Yeah i can't imagine how i could be in that position Especially given the frustrations that. I have just going into a meeting. But we can't we. It's great to have those ambitions and goals but we have to start from the grassroots level of learning about ourselves and really nurturing ourselves to be who we can be learned about our strange nordstrom practice. Them use them and then when we do that then we start to stretch ourselves and and become more confident and and become leader. That many interests want to be. I call him ambitious introverts because Not every introvert. Extrovert wants to be a leader or manager but those ambitious ones that feel like they just can't do it because they are so many obstacles in front of him. That's what the book is about is trying to provide down with guidance on how to manage those situations do well with them and able to lead in their unique way and help grow leaders in more balanced way within the earth's answers. Think so so. Is it fair to say that You've found a new passion in your life in in authorship f beyond the corporate world yeah. I consider that. I'm a late bloomer. You know there. There are people that know from their earliest days before they were teenagers. Some of these people will say. I always knew i wanted to do this. I would say no. I was very very late bloomer. I had a great career of there. Were very challenging points. But i certainly don't regret the choices that i made along the way and develops me to who i am like. You know. we all have our story but Yeah in the last five years. I've found a passion. Wasn't sure what i was going to do when i retire. But i found a passion. I i love to write. I used to white. When i was a kid. And man that's wild up by By the corporate world enrollment for pleasure or books like this off for decades. And i thought i would go back and and kinda check it out but i would say even more than lighting is a new passion for me is just the opportunity to empower other introverts to Shed the shell that they have. I had for decades. And i am really my greatest focus is on the younger people you know people in their teens or people that are getting ready to graduate college or they're new to the corporate world they feel like oh this is overwhelming and intimidating that i think if i had those finding now neither would i know now and if they could learn some of those experiences and break out of that shell and become the confident successful leader that they want to be in their twenties instead of in their fifties them. What a what. A great life. That is so awesome. Yeah and it's great to have a a a legacy like that and built towards something but on the Subject of authorship late. I i've over the last five hundred episodes so i've mentioned interviewed over one hundred and fifty authors and mint several of them. have want to say many but several will put it at the. Several app started late in life and one of them is a comedian to seven semi famous. I don't wanna mention his name but I asked him about this about the idea of becoming an author late life and he said well. It's one of the few things you can do late like you can't become a rockstar late in life but becoming an author late in life all it will require you and your thoughts and have good store until a good story. So it's it's interesting stuff off. The show is often about finding purpose. And and i'll see if you agree with this. And i my theory. Is that most of the people who are walking around. Miserable weather Day working in corporate world in the end goto cubicle every day or a nice big office or or if they work in a blue collar job and for some small company whatever. It is that the reason they're miserable because their job what they do with their life is not connected to what they see their purposes. So that's kind of why. I asked if you found new purpose for your life and it appears that that you have in that mission to Spread the message. That you found sped that info at self education that you've had about your own introversion to younger people who might use it to empower themselves at a younger age so the found your purpose in that. Yes yeah i agree. My wife a said two things that ruin stick with me. Nothing apply when. I first started to write and i also knew that i was going to retire. She said pretty quickly. You know. i've never seen you so relaxed. I said you know that's true. I mean you don't know distress or under at work. I mean it's work but you don't know the stress render until you actually don't have it anymore and you don't have to worry about those difficulties or whatnot and so you know that was very true. And then the other thing she tells me she thinks i'm one of the busiest retired people that she knows. And i you know. I think that that speaks to exactly what you said. I have a passion for what i'm doing right now. I love it. I learned a lot about introversion by writing blogs about publishing and all that sort of stuff so it quenches my desire to do that but it also gives me the opportunity to to learn more about myself but also to connect with other people in a way that i'm comfortable with right so it's not this. It's very different from walking into a big cocktail or convention. That had to do so many times when i can connect with with people in my way and see that make a difference so yeah that makes it pretty exciting and you know i think like a lot of people they retirement approaches and they're worried about what are they going to do to fill their time or you know i'm gonna golf all day of fish but you know i. I don't go for fish. I wasn't sure what is gonna do.

Ladies and gentlemen please open the ears. Open your minds and help me. Welcome antsy friedman to the minute. Tv pokka steve. Welcome keller matt how. now that's not an internet introverts. Hello that was a very extroverted greeting. And i'm well thank you for coming. I'm glad to be here. Go ahead no. I just saying you looking at you now and hearing that response and and you're here you don't seem like an introvert at all at first glance on fresh meeting well. I'm not sure if. I appreciate that happy to be here and i think you know some of the things that are loved to do. Today is maybe dispel some myths of inch version. You know your comments are appreciate it. I think back to two different occasions that make makes me. Think about a podcast. I was on several months ago. And i chatted with the hostess a little bit before the the jazz started off air and we were just chatting a little bit. We get on air and she says you know She introduced me and she says you know you'll find it horribly that he's an introvert because i just had a really nice conversation with him and we chatted about a lot of things that we have in common and so i we laugh to quite a bit about that but i think that introverts Suffer from some of the myths that float around about introversion. Right and so. I think a lot of people believe that. Introverts are antisocial. They wanna to be alone And they would rather not be podcasts or at bars or at dinners or anything like that. And obviously everybody's different and so people can span the whole spectrum of introversion and extroversion And so there's no doubt some people struggle with that. But i think the majority of introverts are happy to socialize. I love getting on these podcasts. It pushes the envelope for me. No doubt but i love to get on and talk about introversion about my story and field questions and things like that. But i think the difference between an introvert an expert in general is that tend to get our energy from.

"Our incredible journey is only just beginning. Well, even when he's not in office, the former president number 45 Donald John Trump knows how to tweak the left and his latest statement issued yesterday. About the election of 2020 being a stolen He's now referring to it from now on, he says. It shall be referred to as the big lie and and that just that, just tell you that just completely blew the left up. He's renting space in their heads right now. Absolutely absolutely, Boy, he sure does know how to trigger liberals. Also put out a statement heartwarming to read new polls on big shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the Great State of Wyoming. She's so low Our only chance would be a vast numbers of people run against her, which hopefully won't happen. They never elect her much, but I say She'll never run in a Wyoming election again. This is getting personal now between Liz Cheney and Donald Trump, isn't it? Well, look, Liz is I think she's gonna lose her leadership position within a month or two. And in the conference, you know, she she had the conference. Not with my vote, but they gave her one more chance. I think she flubbed it, and I think we've got to just get her out of leadership. No, she's number three and the absolute publican. Absolutely. We have many, many more people who could do that job just a swell or better who are who are not Never Trumpers, by the way. Big election in Texas six Jungle primary to Republicans will move on. Democrats get shut out there but the only Democrat but apparently the Kinzinger Cheney candidate into Oh, yeah, What do you like 3/10 of 1% of something, But the Susan Wright got the most votes and she reacted. She's buzz, saying it all has to do With the Trump agenda. They were more committed than ever to advancing the American first agenda to Bree securing the border, which was secure and January. Tonto getting our economy back on track and Tonto continue the policies that we were so pleased with. It works so well for Texas. I thought California was the only one that jungle primaries, But apparently now some of these other states are doing it and run off elections. Yeah, Louisiana while Georgia, obviously well, jungle primary. Yeah, you're right. I didn't realize Texas had jungle primaries. I thought that was That's where everybody runs together. And the top two vote getters advance to the special runoff, which I think is Susan Wright and the other guy's a fighter pilot. I think we skunked the Democrats on that will, and that will just slim the margins even more. A Pennsylvania district attorney said two women are slated to face voter fraud charges and separate incidents both trying to cast ballots in favor of their deceased mother's. In Bucks County P A so well that that can't be true because liberals always tell me voter fraud never occurs, Sean. No, I know And that's why I like bringing up these examples for all the people call in and say what voter fraud Remember, Eric Holder former attorney general said there's no voter fraud. In America. The Arizona Republicans will not stop the audit there until quote every ballot is counted that, according to a statement from Ken Bennett, the former Arizona secretary of state, they're trying every which way but loose. Let's stop or interfere in this audit. What are they afraid of? If everything was running the up it up. What are they terrified over this on it. I have no idea. So you know, I think that I think where there's smoke, there's fire. I think that every ballot should have been recounted in all the states that we're that we're close. They should have been recounted in all the states and that might happen. True Recount a hand recount. This is a forensic examination of each ballot. This isn't just garbage garbage, but they've tried to Doc's the people in the building. That's why they're covering the license plates. Now we have a judge now releasing their security document of the public last week on on their security protocols, so that BLM antifa and every radical leftist out there knows exactly what the security protocols are. Yeah, but you know it. Zarate Zona, not California. I think I think they think they'll take care of them. The Republicans still control a lot in Arizona, and there was news of a spy plane was hovering over the building. Veterans Coliseum in Phoenix. And then the folks have looked into it. The plane was registered to the Phoenix police Department. So why they doing continual surveillance over the place? Where there maybe they're keeping him safe? Maybe maybe it's a good idea. Maybe who knows? All right. It's a 7 19 coming up on 20 minutes after the hour, joining us now from the law offices of likely Freeman is Steve Friedman. Your morning, Steven. Hey, Sean. Good morning. How you guys doing today? We're doing fine. Thank you, sir. All right. So lately we've been getting some calls after accidents for our clients haven't been obtaining the necessary information and really slows down the process. I thought this morning would be a perfect time to refresh recap. What needs to be done after you've been involved in an automobile accident and You couldn't do it these in any order, but they should all be done. First of all, if you've been in an accident, the first thing that I would do is call 911. I think it's important to have the police come to the scene number one. Secure the scene. Make sure everyone's safe and certainly if medical attention's necessary, um, you know, get get fire ambulance to the scene as well. It's also important for the police to assist you. As an injured motorists or a victim in an automobile accident to obtain the necessary information from the other parties that are on the scene. A lot of times. Unfortunately, we know that People in Maryland are uninsured, so the police need to know that and by the way, it's a crime in Maryland to be driving, uninsured. Ah, year in jail and $1000 fine, so people need to be held accountable immediately, so it's important have the police to see number to locate witnesses. Even if you think it's 100% the other person's fault. Tory's change, and it's important to get the witness's name number address. If you can. It's very important to have that toe lock down the liability. Again one of the most important pieces of information to get his insurance information if the other party or parties are unwilling to give you the insurance information. Great tip is to take a picture of the license plate because then at our office were hooked up with the MBA, so we can actually run the license plate figure out who the owner is and get the insurance information. Another great tip is to take pictures. Take pictures of the damages to your vehicle, the damages to the other vehicles. And also the scene is very important..

"Clients, and nothing is more evident than during the coded situation here when insurance companies have been trying to take advantage of our of our clients. Not settling cases because courts have been closed. And delayed So here two examples of what our firm has been doing to really speed up the process to get our clients of settlement and to put pressure on the insurance companies. Number one in all circuit court cases as we discussed before. Went once a lawsuit is filed that jurisdiction issues what's called a scheduling order. The scheduling order note states such a discovery when that's gonna be completed when experts have to be noted A pretrial settlement conference state and sometimes even a trial date. In some jurisdictions Now, for example, Carroll County Circuit Court there are no scheduling orders being issued. So, for example, when we have a case it's filed in that jurisdiction. Now the insurance coming has no incentive to settle the case because there are no deadlines. So This is very unfair. So what we've been doing recently is we are filing requests, demanding these jurisdictions issue of scheduling order, and we don't even need a trial that we just need to have deadlines in place. Forced the insurance company to come to the plate, because without that, they're not going to do anything, and it's just gonna linger and linger. Number two Trial dates. Um, as we know, have been postponed out one or even two years. For example, my father had a case that the trial date was mid 2022. It's ridiculous. So what he did was Excuse me. He successfully filed a motion to advance the trial date, And this happened in Baltimore County in which was granted about a month ago. So now the new trial date is June of 2021. So we're going to do everything it takes to fight for our clients and to make sure there's no undue delay in seeking justice to try to get a settlement. I mean, that's the name of the game here. So without deadlines and without trial, the sooner he insurance company's not gonna budge, So we're going to continue to fight for our clients and do everything we need to do to get a settlement as soon as possible, So That's it for this week, Folks. Please have a safe Thanksgiving holiday And we will look coffee next Tuesday. Thank Steve. Enjoy your turkey day.

It's been about six months, so I'm really excited to get back in the saddle and fight for my client has been waiting an awfully long time. So here's the facts of this case that's coming up Friday. Client eyes 69 years old. She's a single female. She went to a friend's baby shower. She's coming out of the shower in a restaurant and wants to help her friend takes him gift home. So she pulls her car around. Um, and parallel parks where the restaurant is. And all of a sudden she notices a pickup truck that's accelerating at a high rate of speed into her, and she's hawking her horn. She's driving a Fiat, which, as we know, is a very compact vehicle. The pickup truck driver does not stop smashes into our front end, causing a pretty significant collision. Turns out that the defendant driver was injecting himself with heroin. Well, smashing into my clients. You can't make this stuff up. So the police fire come to the scene. He's arrested. He's taken away and my clients and pretty banged up her head hit the head rest upon impact. She's taken by ambulance to the hospital. She spends the night there and this is an otherwise really healthy 69 year old never been in an auto accident. Never injured her neck before. She's released from the hospital. She goes to her primary care doctor who refers to both an orthopedist, a neurologist because of the pains, and there's now radiating pain down her arm. She has a memory. Turns out she's got a herniated disc, and it also shows degeneration. So she has a cervical epidural injection and decides that surgery would not be a good option at her age. Now she's left with a permanent injury. She was an avid motorcycle rider. She cannot longer do that. You can't run anymore. We send it in to the defendant shorts coming. They said. Well, you know what she's 69 years old. She had degenerative disease. I'm only going to pay for her medicals and just a little bit of pain and suffering mean really pathetic offer. So we're looking forward to her day in court this Friday and I'm gonna keep you posted on this case. That's just incredible. Stay safe. Gonna mask up on everything, Absolutely Linda mask up and hopefully we're going You know, do some damage on behalf of the plaintiff who deserves to be awarded significant sum of money, So we'll keep fighting for you guys.

Jane Fonda came on Renaissance. Time really help the sales because she made these VHS home-video more mainstream popular because it was J von coming out with the horizon right. We're great friends. I was with lifetime. Achievement Award. She invited me to even walk the red carpet with her really is she's wonderful. I Love I love. That looks amazing. She does the cat eighty at eighty and so she was like so you guys were going to ask if you guys are competitive with each other but no no. She's she's been saying like at the time. When you guys relate to it you know I mean she you know she sold millions and then having how many how many days through my career wet from all the VHS I would to the DVD and Al Online. But I still twenty five million exercise videos. Dvd's combined twenty five million five million women out there. They could have four or five what. How many actually. I wonder North Eight.

"Welcome back to art of failure. I am your host Steve Friedman. Let's get back to discussing failure. I'm curious to know about you parents. And what happened is a kid when you failed and what your parents either did. Or didn't do always interested to find out what the foundation is for people when they're getting into failure. I guess I divide my youth into two general categories of failure. When it'd be sporting failure and academic. I remember and academics, my father specifically saying, you know, your job is to go to school. So your report card is basically your salary. These are your failures and these successes, and I remember sort of like, you know, hey, bring home four as an OB in the first question is what happened here like how do you react to that? Like nothing's ever good enough. And I think a lot people have felt that. And you know, now that I'm a father I feel that I sort of take each grade as it comes in. I was like no one can be strong at everything and try and be. A little more gentle about it. But on the other hand, I think my father tried to make school some parallel of the real world. Like, this is your job. You know failure isn't. Alighted over when you have a job do get in trouble legally with your, you know, speeding with the police or in your job like making a composite character there are repercussions. And so I think there's a fine line as a as a kid and as a parent like how do you use the word punish? But how do you shame or punish someone for failure? Especially if it's relatively minor like not doing that. Well, you mentioned sports failures. I have several of those for you. I know that you wanted to run a sub three hour marathon, you did three hours and twenty seconds. Correct. You mentioned. Yeah. I think that like many people. I wanted to be a professional athlete in any way, shape or form to go to the Olympics. I think I've been highly blessed by the fact that it was very clear at a very young age that that was not going to happen. So I did not I did not waste too much of my youth. Not exceeding in sports because I was clearly not gifted in any of them. But I was a decent runner. Yeah. I want you to help me right now because I know that you're a decent runner. That's that's an awesome thing to do three hour and twenty second marathon. You know, I just ran the New York City marathon. And I I wanted to beat my time from nineteen eighty nine and I didn't come close. I was way over it. And I'm over it. I'm okay about it. But can talk about that sports. Shame a little bit. Did you say did you run the nine hundred eighty nine New York marathon, I ran the nineteen eighty nine and I ran the marathon Justice past year, and I've done several triathlons including a half ironman, which I'm extremely proud of. But the marathon time was was shit show this marathon this year and unhappy and more than happy. I feel shame about it. Yes. I had this three hour marathon is fairly challenging. I didn't have a coach. I didn't really read books on this. I sort of figured out for my own body that I'm just gonna learn how to run a six fifty two pace, and I'm just going to not stop in and a couple of things and I trained so hard. It was my obsession and focus and it became far more important than it should have. But that's off in what happens in sports, and sort of tied myself to this idea that I would break three hours, and then feel for the first time in my life, like a real athlete..

"Hey, everybody. Welcome to heart failure. I'm your host Steve Friedman. Thanks for tuning in. Yes. This is part of failure the podcast that explores what it means to fail as a human person. We all try so hard not to fail on a daily basis. And we also forget on a daily basis that failure is part of life, and that we can use failure as a catalyst for growth and movement towards bigger and better things. Michael finkel? Our guest today is the author of several books when I recently read, and the reason is with us today is a book called the stranger into the woods. It's incredible read and also an international bestseller, which you'll soon hear about as a fearless journalist. He has reported for more than fifty countries and written for National Geographic G Q Rolling Stone. Esquire Andy care, the Atlantic. And the New York Times magazine, his work has been anthologized in the festive Merican sports writing the best American science and nature writing. And the best American travel writing he lives with his family in western Montana and the south of France, which is where we found him to discuss. Art, a failure. All right. So Michael Finkel? Thank you so much for doing this urine, France where in New York City technology. It's awesome. I just wanna start obviously, we're gonna talk about stranger in the woods. You know? I I have to confess that. I think I am sort of a failure. As a reader. I don't read enough. And I read them when I'm on vacation and this fake -ation started with Jack Reacher. And all that spy stuff because I can get lost in it and the captain of this boat that I was onset. I had this awesome book for you to read, and I started reading, and I don't know thirty six hours later finished. And I think it really had a profound effect on me. And the moment that you and Christopher Knight. This hermit start to cry sort of happened to me at the end of this book. And and I said I got to get this guy. So first of all huge, thanks for doing this. I really really appreciate it. Kenny giveth, not a thumbnail sketch, but a little bit about this story that everybody needs to run out and get if you wanna know about love an isolation and why it's important and how we get over it. And how we deal with it. And just a fascinating story about this hermit Christopher Knight, take it away. Well, first of all, thank you so much for that flattery will get you everywhere. Of course, the hermit book, which is called the. Stranger in the woods. A man was arrested in central Maine breaking into a summer camp that was closed for the season stealing food and upon his arrest. It turned out he had been living in the woods of Maine completely alone for twenty seven years. He said he hadn't spent any money hadn't used toilet indoors hadn't. Hadn't so much as really even spoken a single word anyone except I think he passed a hiker one time in the nineties. He said, hi, hi, and for food and for clothing, and this is really what got me for reading material. He broke into second homes. These little cabins in central Maine and had sort of there had been this sort of myth that had opt up about these two hundred or so cabin owners like these they're really somebody. That's breaking in. You know, they were just like, you know, nobody's jewelry was missing. Nobody's TV or money was missing. But just like, you know, your hamburger and your flashlight in your Stephen King novel. And it turned out that this guy, you might think you might be crazy. But it turned out that he was highly intelligent in fact during my few meetings with him. He granted me about ten hours worth of interviews. I came to wonder if it wasn't Chris Knight who was crazy to leave the wall. But maybe the rest of us are a little bit crazy for staying within the world, and that sort of the general outline of the story, but I think the beauty of the of the. Sale comes from Chris's own take on everything in the world. He read thousands upon thousands of books, but didn't speak a word. If you go for twenty seven years without talking to someone, but you read a lot of great works of literature and some mediocre ones. You kind of develop your own way of speaking..

"Since one thousand nine hundred ninety one where he has put up tremendous numbers beating the market consistently by a substantial margin. Let's talk about those days in nineteen ninety one. When you first started Jim chino said when he began is fun. The we're only a few hundred managers and most of them were generating alpha today, there's eleven thousand hedge fund managers, and it seems the same few hundred are generating alpha. What was it like back in one thousand nine hundred ninety one when you launched omega? Well, there was less competition. I'm not sure what the exact number of hedge funds were but one of the districts that strikes me is about a decade ago to today the number of. Publicly traded companies down by about forty percent because of mergers consolidations going private in that same period. Hedge funds have gone up by four fold so number companies down forty percent number of competitors looking for alpha up fourfold, so you it's difficult. But I I never went into the hedge fund business to make a lot of money. I was very happy partner, Goldman Sachs. I was I think at the time fifth highest percentage partner of the firm firm, we're doing well. I love what I did for a living. But I wanted to start a hedge fund is a way of co-invested with my investor perspective investors, the firm that time wasn't ready to have a hedge fund because they were they had vision in their mind, which was incorrect, in my opinion that I'd be short some investment banking client, the firms playing out find out, and they'd have hell to pay affected matters. I'm a long term investor in that had the problem in the firm is really the abuse of match rated because I think they have a lot of hedge funds on the premises. Now. In fact. Fact, there has been a fairly steady stream of people departing Goldman Sachs, but retaining the relationship with Goldman as their prime broker for for that hedge fund, what was the big change when you left Goldman, you had previously said, they were they were pretty supportive of everything, you know, what how did they manage to to mature their views on this passage of time. If you go back to ancient history really a decade before I left, I was telling Goldman they were they were making very big mistake by not being an asset management and the senior partners at the time said, you don't get it Lee. We're of the view that brokers should do brokered money to do my management don't compete with your customer. And I would say they wake up smell the roses. Look at Merrill, Lynch management. You have web division. Peabody CSFB. Everybody was in the business except one firm who they viewed as their archrival in trading. There was salmon brothers, right? One day of Nance that Bob Salomon junior. Who's a good man was leaving the research department to start Solomon brothers asset management at which point the Steve Friedman. Bob Rubin Corby 'em said, you know, you're right. We made a mistake. We should go into the business. Would you leave research and start acid management and build us a business like you built us in research for the record net blow my own horn. But just factually. When I took over Goldman research in one thousand nine hundred and I guess it was seventy five seventy four we relatively unranked. I left the research department were number one. I number one in Greenwich research number one financial world. I also happen to be the strategies and that was number one for nine straight years in strategy. So I was ready for a new challenge. And I accepted their invitation and started Goldman Sachs asset management, and frankly about a year after I started I realized I had made a mistake. The firm is a great firm, and they understood Addison the management fee revenue, and they were interested in me building a big business. I was really focused on an investment performance. I wanted to co invest with the investors and build a track record and became obvious to me that they wanted me on the road, innovating new politics raising more money, and I wanted to manage money. You know, I was a guy that discovered Henry singleton of Teledyne Wall Street and made a big bet on him and proved to be correct. And so I went to them. I said, look, you know, I'd like to start a hedge for his part of the asset management business. And they originally said, yes. And then they change their mind. And they changed your mind. Again, all this is nuances. They had sponsored a fun called the water street recovery fund, which was a vulture fund. They would buy up distressed debt from defaulted. The issue is and reorganize them. And that created some consternation from the high yield clients of the firm serving in bonds, which dated no the firm was intending to restructure the companies. And so they had a lot of adverse publicity. John Weinberg bless him. Was impressed by the negative feedback and winning enclosed a fund down returned all the money, and they came back to me. And they said, you know, forget about it. We're not going to go for the frying pan to the fire. No hedge fund, we'll put you on executive committee. And you run a business manager not as money manager. You couldn't be lending manager come into contact. And a lot of coverage of if you're on the executive committee. I told them my wife went home at my wife came up with a great line. She said, you know, how old are you gonna be rich? It'd be before you do what you wanna do went back. I said, listen, it's been a great place to me Goldman, I really want to manage money and basically. I'll stay long as Mitch day. But I would like to basically leave and I stayed for a year and consulted for a year. And it was a great place. I grew up Goldman and have great great feelings about Goldman. So walk us through what your process was like it omega. I liked to have a lot of arrows hit my quiver. You know, it's very hard to take fifteen or twenty percent off the top and beat the market. Okay. And so I like to have a lot of different strategies that I could pursue. And basically, we try to make money for investors in five different ways. First stocks are high risk financial assets short-term bonds and cash low risk financial assets. And we spent a lot of times Stephen who on my part and we've been working together for over forty years. Terrific guy, terrific guy, and we spend a lotta time starting the economy the fair valuation and try to figure out is the market undebated going up going down. It can be fully value going up who cetera because that determines exposure. Risk assets. Number to all the studies. I've read on portfolio return say more important being the right individual stock in any one year is also being the right asset class. So we spent a lot of time looking at returns in fixed income equities and fixed income we cover the gamut where government bonds high green double binds, a high yield bonds structure credit, and we're trying to look for destroy new winter, which to miss price asset. Okay. Third thing we do is that bread and butter business. We why spend most of my time is undeveloped oxen alongside not a success. So we spent time looking for with stocks the short side, and then we do sort of macro trading where we'll basically go longer shorter currency longest show commodity long, should it index away from the S and P five hundred and we risk about two percent of capital in the macro area to make an incremental five or six percent a year. So I would Bill omega sanguine equity oriented hedge for with the macro capability coming up. We continue our conversation with Lee Cooperman of omega advisors discussing what.

And, and you need that support. Is there an opening for a Republican to run as an independent? Well, no, they would lose the independent primary, Dwayne, the rock Johnson never mind did point. Yep, I, yeah, I just don't think it's going to happen also. Here's an interesting phenomenon. I think especially for the United States of America doctors suing their patients for negative online reviews, retired air force Colonel. David Antoon agreed to pay a hundred dollars to settle what we're felony charges for emailing his former Cleveland Clinic surgeon articles. The doctor found threatening and posting a list of. Of. On yelp of all the surgeries. The urologist had scheduled at the same time as the one that left him incontinent and impotent a decade ago. So this surgeon did a surgery and he had multiple surgeries scheduled for the same time. And because of the job he did on this air force Colonel. He's incontinent. And impotent. And because he fought back on yelp this, the guy who is the victim here of the urologist faced up to a year in prison. What. This is not freedom of speech Antunes ten year crusade against the Cleveland Clinic, and his urologist is unusual for its length and intensity as is the extent to which the Cleveland Clinic. Urologist g hod cook was able to convince police and prosecutors to advocate on his behalf. Antunes plea deal came last week as others in the medical community aggressively combat negative social media posts, casting a pall over one of the few ways perspective, patients can get unvarnished opinions of doctors. How could it be that you cannot post something against a doctor or a clinic, or a surgeon if they've done a crappy job. Are we in the United States of America at all, is a region of close FEC simile of what it used to be. Here's some of the recent cases. Cleveland physician Bahman on sued a former patient for defamation for posting negative reviews on yelp and other sites about her nose job Gurion's attorneys. Steve Friedman says that although the first amendment protects patients rights to post their opinions quote, our position is she did that she did far beyond that and deliberately made false factual statements. A settlement mediation is slated for early August, and then there's a trial set for August. If no agreement is reached, she's going to go on trial. Four posting negative reviews on yelp.
