Oracle and TikTok: What You Need to Know About a Deal
"Brad's team broke the news of the Oracle deal and his reporters had lots of questions about it like how much was oracle paying for Tiktok and what exactly was included in the deal They weren't getting a lot of answers neither oracle nor Tiktok have provided details of the deal. How it structured what happens to the algorithms whether any money changes hands all of these are huge issues that have still not yet been resolved as far as we know, it seems like the announcement was made to get ahead of this deadline and say we've decided on Oracle and we're going to work out the rest of the stuff later. We do know some things under the deal tic TACs parent company Bite. Dance would keep a big stake in the APP. And according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin TIC TAC would bring its global headquarters and around twenty thousand jobs to the US but one of the most telling details about the new deal is that neither Tiktok nor Oracle are actually calling it a sail. What would you say it is we're calling it a partnership. Nobody. Really knows, I mean tiktok calling oracle the quote trusted partner as journalists were trying to unpack that but it it seems like it's going to involve oracle. Talks data they're going to provide those services and get big fees for it. and. Does that arrangement address trump's concerns? Previously basically, the trump administration had to take tick talks word for it that it wasn't doing sketchy stuff with this data. Now Oracle's GonNa stand up and say you can take our word for it. One of the things that's striking about this deal at least as we understand it thus far that trump doesn't seem to have gotten two of his major demands he said repeatedly, Tiktok should be sold and that when it was sold the US, treasury would get a sizable payment as a cut of deal. Neither of those are included in the proposal to the US government as we understand it right now. So, will it be enough to satisfy the trump administration's ultimatum? That's the multibillion dollar question we don't know. An answer might be coming soon, a committee led by the Treasury Department that has to assess the deal for national security implications is reviewing it now. The committee will then bring its recommendation to the president. They will look at the proposal and then they will take it the trump and presidents historically do not get involved at all. But this time the President Will Steve Mnuchin the treasury secretary said this week. He will take this deal to trump and that trump will be the ultimate decider when asked yesterday about whether, he'll approve the deal trump didn't show his hand but he praised. co-founder. Decision Pretty. Soon. I have a high respect. Valeria was. Somebody I know he's been really a guy for a long time so we're going to take a look.
E.T. Was Originally a Horror Movie

Vaccines and the Future of COVID with Epidemiologist Dr. George Rutherford
"This isn't the same rehashed discussion of covert. This is. Well more worth listening to. This is stuff that you need to know. This is medicine we're still practicing. I'm building. Of course, I by friend and Co host zooming in Dr Steven. Tailback he's a quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care, and he continues to fight on the front lines of the covert battle here in California for which we are eternally grateful. Steve. How you doing? Hey Bill. Good to see you. And R various special guest Dr, George Rutherford. He is the internationally lauded head of infectious disease and global epidemiology at the UCSF School of Medicine. He is also UCSF's professor of pediatrics and adjunct. Professor School of Public Health at California Berkeley. I had a chance to print out Georgia's see. It's one hundred, twenty, six pages long with two hundred and twenty one published papers and so many important accolades. So I'm going to read the whole thing to you now. Only. Kidding. Dr Authored although socially distance. Thanks so much for joining real pleasure. So Professor of epidemiology and biostatistics director at the prevention and Public Health Group. What do you do? Well, I'm an academic. So I teach school right I do research and I provide advice. So the mission of anybody in Academic Vinnie academic medical entity is education research, clinical care and public service. So my clinical care is really the clinical practice of public. Health and I advise the City Health Department San Francisco Department of Public Health, the California Department of Health and some of the various health departments around the state on approaches to controlling the Kobe deputy hammock. You did mention that your research is partly funded by CDC. Yes. That's correct. Yeah. Hell is a bit about that and how that affects your work during these crazy days. So I've worked with CDC for decades and most recently. I've been doing predominantly HIV related work in developing countries as part of the Presidential Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief I, have a large competent, very competent research group that basically tries to help governments and occasionally universities but mostly governments CDC missions in developing countries to understand what's going on with their. HIV. Epidemics, how things are working to evaluate progress and to discover new ways to try and stop the spread of HIV and try and. Improve. Clinical outcomes of people who already have HIV. So cases per one million population worldwide is running at about three thousand, five, hundred cases per one million in the US is running at about nineteen thousand, three hundred. So did we screw up or do we have a population that's more difficult to manage? Yes and yes, we have six fold higher numbers of cases than we should have and other countries like India may eventually catch up. I think that the US mister major opportunity early on and that was the problem with not having up tests and having the wrong tests and having tested didn't work and trying to control tests and trying to restrict out tests were being used for whom they are being used. I think they've always been you know a whole myriad lack of policy leadership which the states. have taken over and I think first of all the bay area in which the six county health departments acted in concert to move to a shelter in place ordinance early on on March. Sixteenth, and there is a very good reason for March sixteenth it was the day before Saint Patrick's Day, and then later the state moved in the same direction. So I think California's really been a leader in this. Now, you wouldn't know it from the last two months or three months since mid June under there's a huge wave of new infection a disappointed but I think we still are leaders in this. We showed data today in medicine grand rounds at UCSF that looked at numbers of deaths per hundred cases and in New York ten percent in. San. Francisco, it's zero point, seven percent. So it's less than one percent in San Francisco and the next best in a big city is something I one and a half percent did we screw up as a country? Totally? Did we screw up regionally in the north in northern California I don't think. So we scrub stay somewhat I think we made the reopening little to easy S. Really Hindsight Wealth speak that hindsight just for a second I mean in New York they've had four hundred, forty, five, thousand cases in thirty, three, thousand deaths. So they got a hold of this thing long before we did but we've already exceeded the case we're up to seven, hundred, fifty, thousand cases almost eighty percent more than they've had, and we've had fourteen thousand deaths. Half of what they've had when you say that we as a country may have screwed up, do we have a hold of this thing now and how much of it is that the population is not wearing masks enough especially young people who've decided that they're not as susceptible what New York was bad luck and they had continuous importation from Europe and may have had who? knows. Thousands of cases imported from Europe each one of which starts a new chain of transmission. We in San Francisco we probably at tens coming from Asia and you know the first death care was on February six dot and that was diagnosed retrospectively. Womanhood attended a convention in Las Vegas choose living in Santa, Clara County near San Jose and that convention probably people from China. or at least in the in the hotel that's probably where she got it. If she'd come home and hit a large crowd event at the wrong time with very high levels of virus inter nose and throat and spread it around we could have been just as bad office New York but we weren't and that's really a question of luck. So New York at Bath Block. But guess what we do. This was coming since the thirty first of December. That's when the UBA provincial CDC notified the central Chinese CDC that Oh, by the way, we may have a little problem here the central Chinese CD setup team to Wuhan on December thirty first basically started began an immediate investigation started closed down and drain the whole thing under control. That was the starting Bell I. Mean there was basically two months lost now CDC will say, well, we were having we we developed tests. We did this. We did that. Yeah, that's true. But then the FDA threatened to decertify their laboratory that was producing testing. They produce tests in the hundreds, not in the tens of thousands which was what was needed thousands. Of people came from Europe to New York and it got spread around helped by a couple of super spreader events where people in fact, at one person they affect hundreds of people at the same

Oracle Wins Bid for TikTok in U.S., Beating Microsoft
"We're going to talk about this Tiktok dealing whether the algorithms are included. Do you have to write coalition? Rhythms. Do you know? Well, hold on. Let me let me just. You're all fired up. About it because there's So. Much I here we go. All right. All Right I. Know You're all fired up you're tweeting about it and I don't follow you believe it or not. But you know because I like to enjoy my way but someone retweeted your stuff to me and I'm like Oh. Jeez. Anyway, you're mad because trump said he wouldn't do a partnership ever when it was Microsoft and now he likes Oracle I figure it's because Larry News. Talk? All by our make I know I know what I'm GonNa do Marie Redesign and then I'm going to say Andrew hate it away making headlines this morning sources telling senior see that Oracle set to be announced as Tick Tock Tech partner in the US, it's unclear which parts of TIKTOK technology are being taken over by Oracle in talking about the secret sauce the algorithms and we don't own hasn't commented but I don't know whether the Chinese government would allow those algorithms there'd be taken our tick tock also. Won't comment on the potential. Microsoft had been considered the front runner by tiktok business until this weekend micro says it was notified by TIC TACs. Chinese, owner dance at its offer was rejected Walmart was teaming up with Microsoft on its bid their algorithm experts over there at Walmart in a statement late yesterday Walmart suggests it's considering joining Oracle's bid now. So Andrew, it's. It's kind of I guess it's kind of. Interesting you know Microsoft I initially saw how you were saying that that there's something nefarious going on here with the Oracle in in the White House and stuff but didn't I mean Microsoft didn't get the jet ideal right I mean do do we know that the White House does not like Microsoft specifically or do we do we think that they like Oracle more because ellison did a fundraiser and suffer cats is a Timing. What you know I'm not sure. I I'm not sure how the politics have played and and frankly weather they've played in any of this I think there's question marks now and we will see what ultimately transpires here. You know I spent. You probably never some great games yesterday. I. Unfortunately I was on the phone trying to figure out what was happening here, and the interesting part about this particular transaction is that originally Microsoft had started having talked back in June and July. With. Tiktok with by dance about what was going to be called the Tech Partnership. Then effectively, the clouds, the azure cloud was going to be the host for four. TIKTOK and that was the interesting part for for Microsoft. They were gonNA take a minority interest, not a controlling interest and then the trump administration turned around and said, no, no no, we don't like that because we have a problem here we don't. Believe. We still believe that there's a national security problem in less a US company owns a majority stake, a a effectively control of the company, and therefore the view was also the algorithm because that is the business and not just the business for the Algorithm to work the reason why you get fed cool or fun videos that are appealing to you is because what's happening is the company is taking the data. which you produce meaning the data of which videos you like, which ones you flipped through quickly and what other things you're producing, and then they're going and showing you stuff that you like. So they need the that's like the oil they need the oil for the algorithm to work, and so once you take the algorithm out of China and put it in this country. Then all of a sudden China has A. Problem and so the question in this in this new transaction with Oracle is they're saying this is a tech partnership to that actually the algorithms not coming with well, the algorithm doesn't really work if you can't feed data. So the question is how you can do that in a secure way. Is there a secure way to do it and I? Think that's that's the question right now on the table Joe and. Whether they like Oracle or not I don't know what? The the this is Dan. Saying. We don't know at this point whether the White House will sign off on this I guess what do we have indications at this? One's going to be okay with them versus the other Microsoft too much we have. Already have gone, my understanding is that the early indications of the White House is going is trying to find some form of a compromise. Now, it's interesting because from a antitrust and competitive landscape, you would've thought actually that a Microsoft Walmart deal arguably would have been better in many other ways, which is to say that if Tiktok went to Microsoft all of a sudden, you could you potentially could build a real meaningful meaningful competitor to a facebook. So if you thought of anti-trust issues with facebook or potentially with Google on the advertising side. Potentially against Amazon if you thought it could that far when it comes to Walmart's involvement of the. So in a way that transaction created all sorts of other benefits beyond the national security issues, potentially sort of up ending the landscape for technology potentially in a good way to the extent that you're that people have been concerned about competition the

Drug-Company CEOs Sign Pledge on Covid-19 Vaccine
"Week. The CEOS of nine drug companies that are developing corona virus vaccines all signed onto a pledge not to seek regulatory approval until the shots have been shown to work in late stage clinical trials. This is all an attempt to calm fears that have seen may be too soon for political reasons many Americans are skeptical about taking a vaccine if it seems a development and authorizations were rushed for more on, this will speak to Christopher role in he's the business of healthcare reporter at the. Washington Post. The stakes couldn't be higher obviously and what we've seen unfortunately from this administration since the pandemic began is a number of hyped and rushed through decisions through the FDA and through other political statements that have had the effect of kind of undermining the public's faith and exactly what the FDA is going to approve. The biggest example is the. Hydroxy Cork when debacle, which the FDA gave a emergency youth authorization to it, you know at the behest of trump in the White House really with very little two zero hard evidence that it would have any effect as a treatment for coronavirus for covid nineteen and when some more hard studies were done for hydroxy core Quinn by June, it became apparent that the drug pad dough benefit. And in fact, posed dangers of dangerous heart arrhythmias. The FDA had to rescind its way which was a big black guy for the agency and kind of set the tone for the relationship between the White House and the FDA, and so you've seen trump expressing frequent displeasure with the pace of FDA deliberations, and then what you've also seen was just recently two weeks ago trump totally over hyping the. For Congress and plasma for treatment of Corona virus, and then his own FDA Commissioner, Steven Hahn completely botching the roll out of the statistics and totally exaggerating what the effect of commerce and plasma is for what the benefit is. It's actually of somewhat potentially some use, but there have been good randomized clinical trials that even show what it does. That's the backdrop to today's announcement by the drug companies where they are want to rush in and here, and so the vaccine is a much bigger deal obviously than hydroxy Corcoran or convalescent plasma, and if people don't have faith in the vaccine, the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and not enough people signed up. To take and accept that it's GonNa inoculate them from growing virus. It won't stem pandemic I mean you need at least fifty to percent of the people taking it to build hurt immunity. It's GONNA be a couple of year endeavor and to rush something into the marketplace without having it appropriately tested is a really dangerous course and so that's why you're seeing the drug companies you know sort of tacit or implicit criticism of trump's path here. So they are you know boldly saying would normally not be bold at all. Don't worry folks. We've got you the headline for their Stevens said former leaders unite to stand with science, SCO right there sounds kind of. Sort of an unsubtle dig I think. The political environment, a lot of the top vaccine makers that are in contention right now that are in stage, three trials and others have signed on this. List a few those if you could please. So the ones that are in the most advanced stages three that are in phase three trials, Astra Zeneca Pfizer and Moderna each of these is not a traditional vaccine you know you have what's called deactivated virus and then you use the deactivated virus in some sort of growth grow it in like Ed Whites or And it's a very painstaking and long process with these genetic based vaccines. You can rush them through the manufacturing and development process much more quickly, and so that's what they've done. So that's why those three manufacturers are ahead of the game ahead of the pack and our manufacturing large volumes of vaccine in the event that they do prove safe and effective through massive stage three clinical trials. Clinical. Trials for vaccine take about thirty thousand people and that's an important distinction that these vaccines are made a different way because we don't have a vaccine that has been made in the way that they're going about it. So they really do need to do all the due diligence in these late stage clinical trials to make sure it's safe and effective. Well, that's a great point. Really. Yeah. These are novel technologies. So they do show in early stages they've shown clinical effectiveness and they've shown a decent safety profiles. And so it's encouraging. But until you have the really large scale population scale clinical trials that were, you can see that it's actually preventing people from getting infection out in a community. You really won't know how the other thing is. You gotTA figure out how long it's GonNa work that'll take even longer you'll see is a an e Ua before we know exactly whether or not the effect of the vaccine will last one year, two years, five years. So no one will really know that for quite some time as well,

Serena Williams upset by Victoria Azarenka at US Open
"So. Niamey's soccer took place in the final and that point. ENACT COVERAGE ON BBC radio we switched from our digital station sports, extra five, which is the network station and. We went big on Serena. Williams against Victoria as a Aranka. Which I have to say I started to think well, it can't possibly live up to what we've just seen in you just Kant. And the first point of the match. Serena. Williams on leashes a four hundred. The almost didn't. It couldn't be tracked by the the camera because it went so fast and it just went out but it felt like such a statement immediately, the I am going to just destroy every tennis bullet comes near me. And I felt like that my of slight rattled as a Aranka just the the shift force integration that was that was hit with. An immediately to breaks of serve to. Serena. Four games to love she led. Won The set six one. and. I don't know about you. But my name was it feels like we've just got an a time machine and back ten twelve years to when Williams was in twenty. It's the way she was running the movement. She was all she was moving right now soccer she's nearly thirty nine and she's hitting the living daylights out of the ball an and it really wobbled as Anka who started just Tara what did you think? Katherine Oh. Yeah it was blistering utterly blistering and I think it was a a mock of the respect that Serena Williams has. Victoria as rancor because her starts Serena have been Radi. Ready. Sluggish. And she's played some really good plays and she says improper tests but I think she needs she simply could not get away with that today. I think a mindset shifted completely. Am I don't know how I don't I genuinely don't know how you can just sort of decide i. I can't get away with doing that today. So I won't. Thing why you why couldn't you trick yourself over into thinking that every day but overseas? Just doesn't psychology doesn't work like that but. She. Yeah. She couldn't afford to give Victoria as. That lead and take her time to work her way into the match as she has been doing. and so she went to completely the other end of the spectrum and made. Pretty much as blistering start tennis match as I have seen as I've seen Serena making in recent memory, it was. It made my eyes Bogle out of my head. At moments. Really did it was like she? Convinced herself that Seraing was Sharapova. I mean how many times we've seen Serena come out with that intensity and that that or against Charipova and just make mincemeat of her certainly within the first set, and that's what she did to as their income in the first set she was. Unbelievably good as you said, crunching the ball moving fantastically and not allowing as incur any chance to set or what. So ever because she was serving well. So kind of dominating the points on her serve and then she was returning as in cassette could serve so strongly and. This was the Serena that I've kept expecting to see this tournament but i. I was beginning to doubt whether she had that level of tennis in her to be honest because I thought I thought we might see Sloan. Stevens I, thought we might see it against Zachary thought we might see against Perron Covi-, kept expecting. To raise her level in this tournament and. She was saving it for today it seemed and as you said I, don't know how you can turn that tap on and off and have control. Today I just. Will be extra. Mom is lengthy. It was like the very revealing candid. Enlightening. pre-match interview with Victoria as Aranka. where she was asked about her poor record against Serena in grand, slams, what do you need to do to get the win tonight? Play better. or or I? will she treated about for match interview with the contempt? It deserves it was. It was great.

Today we're talking about an American civil rights activist whose work began as a student and extended throughout her life and beyond. She was one of the leaders of the sit in and Jalen movements continuing to fight for a more just society even when faced with serious harm.

Lawmakers and members of the Trump Administration agreed that they want to avoid a government shutdown when the fiscal year ends on September 30th.

But the duration of that extension is still up in the air. As our talks over additional Corona virus aid negotiations over that funding have been there to stand. Still for weeks.

In the studio system as an assistant, it's it's very easy to lose track of like the creative joy than brought you into this industry, the goals and so. And like you know I had a vision for like a time, this was. At the time leading man. At the time that I was reading the a leading man screenplay. There are a lot of offensive racist things going on in in millions like Jeremy Lin was start starting to take off then like people were making fun of him. Talking about his penis is and like all these really degrading things and A. Two broke girls on the air. That really degrading Asian character thought NBC show. was on all this terrible anti-asian stereotypes where we're starting to surface, and I was like. Asian men need help and I need to make a show about I need to make a movie about what's happening to us in how degraded and I had a lot of Asian American actors at the time that I wanted to tell their story, because as hard as it was for me to get ahead in the industry, like I couldn't imagine what it would be like to be an actor, and so I, I wrote a screenplay about an Asian American actor, trying to out stereotypes. And, trying to get that three dimensional romantic, leading role and I wrote it back in two thousand. and. We went into production in two thousand thirteen, and then it came out. In two thousand thirteen in two, thousand, fourteen and twenty, fifteen played a lot of the major Asian film festivals, opening and closing night centerpieces, and it was. It was really great to get that conversation out there. To to let people know that this is a problem we needed to do something and you know a couple years later it's. I'm not taking credit for it, but I'm taking credit for being part of the conversation to get better Asian representation out there and like now we have crazy, which Asians and that is has the potential to change the landscape. I hope we keep going with that. Yeah I become a regular watcher of AQUAFINA nor from Queens. How is that, oh? It's it's really. At first it's a little jarring because of the way the humor happens. But you know I've had long on here and this is you know after he'd already shot this and and so. Even just seeing the the acting chopped beatty. Who was finishing up mister robot and being the white rose. WHO has this? You know gender fluid Shit, you know. Very intense. Character. Being the straight single dad widower, dad of of Aquafina and so believable. And the granite, and and it's really funny. I also binge watched Kim's convenience, right? Another great Canadian Sitcom, but again these these are two sitcoms that are just dealing with. Not Typical, but but just Asian American or Asian, Canadian life, and bringing in things Kim's convenience, they go to the Korean. Church Presbyterian Church and all the drama. They're like oh my gosh. Some of this holdings a little bit. But then Aquafina definitely you could see. She's written in. Her Sitcom is so funny. And you know she's got the world's big vibrator ever seen I. It's like the size of a baseball bat. Hilarious it's Hilarious, and and and yet you know some of the different themes, and then bowing Yang is her cousin in this right, so it's neat to see him other than a few sketches on Saturday night live. Right yeah, so yeah Kudos to you being part of that wave and I want to say. I want to say Damn. You Steven because I was tracking the character a G. Q. that that was so wonderfully acted by jockeying. Great all my God love him stuff, but. Quickly after after a leading man made, he got to play, he was the lead in a Singapore television series, so he finally got. After are moving. A leading man made me so happy well, he deserves it. He deserves it. You know, but I must say Damn you because as the story writer. About the last twenty percent of the of the movie, all of a sudden, you're changing my opinion about his character. Yes. Right because! I show. I brought my daughter back in after we did the falling age. I've run into the the the thing where they these prescreened the episode of the Poo Poo, platter thing right, and then, and then the director panel thing and how she Q. Confronts Him, because that's the voice of my daughter A. She's totally there right, and so like. Yes, yes, he's standing up. He's speaking out. He's putting them in their place. And by the end of the movie is like. You know he he's. He's complicated like he is, he's right. He did a really shitty hang. He didn't because I didn't understand why he was circling those women's pictures until and then you know that whole woman that the more heavy set woman that they ran into you in the restaurant that that was one of his prior and I'm like. This dude is very scheming, he he. And, so it doesn't really hit the fan. It doesn't really come clear till near the end, but I proceeded the writing of that I thought that was so clever. Because you strung me along especially as someone who knows a lot of an had guests on who are part of that whole. Trying to get beyond stereotyped roles. and. He's such a champion, right? And such he such a third when it comes to that. So many people so many actors make compromises and immoral compromises and their quest for their careers and it's. Weighing it's about wing morals. It's about weighing the goods versus the pad, the fits and G Cues Calculus.

Welcome to episode number two hundred and forty seven our special guests this week during pride month is Stephen J Kong Stephen is a taiwanese-american who was born and raised in Virginia Beach Virginia. He was very much growing up a closeted gay young man, who was a very active member of very conservative Chinese shirt, there in Virginia Beach, and this continued on through college who's very involved in campus, ministry and Bible Studies, and so and so forth, but eventually as you will hear in this episode He kind of figured out his sexuality, and he came out of the closet. He has the distinction of actually getting married early in this pandemic and again you'll get a chance to hear that story. he is a writer. But, also a filmmaker director. In Two Thousand Fourteen Policy Mike listed him as one of six Asian American filmmakers shattering America's agent film bias. He's funny. He's a bright and he's very engaging and I. Commend to you the conversation that we had. Couple things on my mind. This week as I. Put my thoughts together for this introduction. Today. I went writing as do on Mondays, most Mondays with my friend and podcast listener. Ashley we both have electric bikes and. Earlier during the pandemic during the shut in with my serious lower back, pain and hip, his pain, I mean I. Didn't I couldn't write for over a month and? It's It's been really great to get out again. We went writing from his home and We decided to kind of retrace our our tracks from last week, and we went all the way to Griffith Park which is. Amazing Park in the center of Los Angeles even has mountain range in at and. We decided to ride our bikes up this long. Really beat up road called garbage, truck, road, and literally garbage trucks use it. And! You know we're. We've got our power on and at the same time you know we're. We're pushing, but because we have this. Extra superpower. We're able to carry on a conversation. So you know there weren't a lot of people out there today we passed a few people. And then there was this long stretch where we didn't see anybody. Hiking or biking until up ahead we saw. These other two cyclists and they were all kitted out in jerseys and. And the you know the shorts and they're writing nice bikes and. You can tell that they were putting their effort into it. And you know we were just gaining on them and eventually. We caught up and passed them. It turns out that one of the cyclist recognized Ashley. From a group right that they've both participated in and so we got up to the Griffith Observatory and. Obviously! We got there before them. And then they arrived and these guys. You know they're older than both of us. One is seventy. The other ones seventy-three. They're in great shape I can't imagine. Grueling it would be to. A ride that. Long, UPHILL! Climb with non powered bikes okay. So, I was talking to the seventy three year old and he said. Hey you know what I'm seventy three I've been writing since I was thirty eight. I'm still used to younger people. Passing on long climbs like that, so you know that doesn't bother me at all, but when you guys passed us. On Bikes, and you guys not only past us, but you guys were just chatting away. You're having this conversation and that's never happened before and I was just I was just devastated. Until yelled. Hey, we're on e bikes. So anyway, I I thought that was kind of funny that. It's it's the fact that. The extra power that we have because of these electric motors in addition to our own peddling. GIVES US A. The the wherewithal able to actually hold a conversation all the way up to climb, whereas normally when you're doing under your own power is just like. It's all you can do just to breath. So. Hats off again to those guys. Almost ten years older than US and they're doing it under their own power, but I'm not trading in my powered bike for nothing and nobody. The other thing that's on my mind is. This week. The Friday at the end of this week is actually a scheduled meeting when my old church where used to be the senior pastor they're having their scheduled typical monthly meeting, and one of the things on the agenda for them is to decide now that it's been three years whether or not they believe it's okay for me to come back to the church just as a lay person you know. And You know in some ways when they first told me We're not gonNA. Have this meeting until three years from after you retire man that seemed like a long time, but here we are. Just days away from when they're actually going to have that meeting. and. You know my my feelings about it as I've shared a little bit before. This last year. Has Really changed. I, think before. The events of this year especially finding a church nearby that we enjoy. I think I would be in on pins and needles, just just like waiting with baited breath. What are they going to decide about my future? But now you know, it's just like I realized. That regardless of what they decide. I have decisions to make to. and. As I hinted at a couple of weeks ago. I just really feel like. It's it's just kind of a nonstarter for me if I'm going to show up anywhere anywhere. Where my very presence, a causes raised eyebrows or People to Huddle and need to have meetings and stuff I mean I. Understand. In this case, circumstances and conditions I. I was the senior pastor there for almost forty years. Well I was there for almost forty years, but. Still at this point in my life. I just like being able to show up. Be Who I am. And have people genuinely happy and not feeling concerned or upset or whatever, and in my own little way this experience a has. Especially this pregnant. This year is just give me a tiny taste of what my lgbtq friends. Especially those who like to go to church. They have to deal with all the time and That's that's no good night. That's that's a nonstarter so. I'm grateful that I've been able to. Have just a little bit of a taste of what that's like. 'CAUSE, it sucks. If you've never. Had An experience like that regardless of what we're talking about sexuality ethnicity politics. Marital status. Age. Unit name it right. Socioeconomic Educational, if just showing up as who you are. Causes People to have meet and talk about that. That's just no good. And I get it, life can get complicated, but. They gym now. I think life is a lot simpler. And as lgbtq friends, whose Christian said to me, you know I'm just tired of people having opinions and being bureaucratic in needing all these things that people in groups tend to do. As a Christian I just want it more simple and just. Be More like Jesus. Jesus was all about love and welcome and inclusion and hospitality and. You know. Why can't we just be there? Wow that makes way too much sense to me now. So anyway brick grateful for that. Okay enough about me. Now you get to listen in on a very fun conversation with Stephen, J cooke..

"How do we make sure that we continue Steven A. Beyond this moment where it is on everyone's mind, having uncomfortable conversations that are necessary to actually do something about this. By being receptive to those who appear to be sincere when they say they want to help, give them an opportunity to do just that as opposed to shoving them aside because they had a very stupid and a an ignorant, and they expressed themselves in a way that they should not have I think. Everybody deserves the opportunity to correct themselves. If indeed they're willing. Willing to do so, and I want direct the statement to to you Greenie to you. Tim and to every white person out there. That's listening right now. You know something where you don't think like some of when we talk about systemic racism and prejudice and oppression things of that nature. If you're not of that mindset and you don't think like that. Don't worry about it, and what I mean by that is. Don't worry about how people are going to react to you. If you know your heart is in the right place, and you're willing to put forth a concerted effort on behalf of what is right, particularly as it pertains to a disenfranchised community, then you have very little to worry about I. personally believe. I, don't know but based. Based on my experiences as a black man on this earth for fifty two years, I, find that one of the one of the things. This incredibly alarming is that you have a lot of white folks who don't do wrong, but they personalized things when people are talking about systemic oppression, systemic racism and things of that nature, if your heart's in the right place and you're willing to. To help in getting things right and doing the right things. We're not talking about you. We're talking about those going up against those who really endorse and promote oppression and prejudice and racism. If you're not about that, then you're on the right side, and if you're on the right side, you have absolutely positively nothing to worry about in any black person. That has a problem with somebody WHO's. WHO's hot? WHO's actions and whose sole is a right place? They're the ones who are wrong, not you and that's what I would like white folks in America to recognize our I want to make sure I understand what you're saying that when you say personalized went went when the subject of systemic oppression comes up, and you're suggesting white people try to. What do you mean by personalize? What I mean by that is that when we're having that uncomfortable conversation, what makes it uncomfortable is that you find that some white folks that you might be talking to in an effort to express yourself? They embrace it as if you're talking about them if I'm talking about Greenie Green. I know, Tim. I'm not talking about you. I'm talking about somebody who really does engage in prejudice and racism and things of that nature. If you are good decent person who happens to be white and you care about fairness. Fairness and you care about equality I'm not talking about you, so don't personalize it to a point where it becomes an uncomfortable and compensation, you embrace the conversation, because I'm talking about them, if somebody in a very innocuous manner, if somebody said up there and say well, you know what this person comes to working happens to be Black and Oh my God he comes to work late about fifty times a year. You eight talking about me, you talking. You're not talking about black people. You're talking about him that. That particular person that shows up late all the Tom. I don't generalize and believe Oh my God. They're talking about anybody WHO's black. You talk about him and I think that's what all of us need to recognize. Don't personalize it like they're talking about you. Because their plan complaining about somebody who may share your hugh in Pigmentation, it doesn't make them you if your heart and soul is in the right place. That's what I'm trying to say. I understand I have to leave it there because we have to. To get ready for I take. They are coming up again. Our schedule, a little shifted here on ESPN I take is coming up in about eleven minutes.

But as we're GONNA learn today, he is oh, so much more and also much less than all of those things. On October third nineteen ninety ago, explained to Arsenio Hall on national, television that quote A. Lot of my youth was spent in Brooklyn, which is strange. Because Seagal was born in Lansing. Michigan okay I I get making some. Creative adjustments to your biography to add a flare up. You had Detroit right there.

Steven has at various times, claim to be of Japanese Italian and Russian descent. You also claims to speak four languages over. Because it claiming. To do that in English. Over, his mother confirmed with people magazine. His heritage is exclusively Jewish and Irish, and there is no evidence to suggest he speaks any language other than. He said he said that he has spent a lot of his youth in Brooklyn. And Brooklyn was the name of his high school sweetheart, so it's technically true. Sneaking suspicion, his high school sweetheart was from Canada. Niagara Falls different parts of New York. At the age of five cigars, parents moved him to California, which is unfortunately also not Brooklyn as team. He became interested in martial. Arts Gordon to his mother from that same people magazine article quote. He worked with this nice old Japanese man at Doj Joe in Garden Grove. He encouraged Steven to go to. Japan and quote know yeah, when the proprietor of a business that your kid keeps going back to ask them to. Please go somewhere five thousand. is taking a personal interest in him, yes. and Go to Japan, he did however win is also in question, Seagal claims to have studied with more hey. Habushi. Mora Neyla. Sheba the founder I like. Better. However records show. He attended college in California Until Nineteen, seventy, one and Julia Shiba died in nineteen, sixty nine, so seem strange. Some contemporaries remember an American kid who played guitar hanging around the studio, but they are unwilling to say when, or even that they're sure it was Seagal Gary Dobson a fifth degree black belt who studied with the master from nineteen, sixty, one to nineteen, sixty nine has been quoted as saying that story is bull back then I never heard of Steven Seagal.

Miyako Fuji, Tani, a second degree, black belt, and a daughter of an. Bass Guitar Master who had come to Los Angeles to teach. When MIATA returned to a Asaka, Seagal went with her following year, they married and had a son who they named Kentaro and daughter, who they named a Jakko also goes off and claim to be the first non Asian to open DOJ in Japan.

In the underground stations hiding out during the blitz sleeping in hammocks over the railroad tracks their astounding. Pictures Did your knowledge of these pictures procedure writing. Yes wow I I began learning about the pictures while doing research for the play. So it didn't proceed my conception of the play or my work on it or my setting it or my Jesse and Jesse and I wrote the book Jesse Nelson It didn't proceed our work on the show that we were. We were actually commissioned by the National Theatre of London and when we were there at one point working on the shaw bomb went off in a tube station and I thought well this is our world this terror on this uncertainty were living with. I'm afraid I fell in love with Alice in Wonderland Lewis Carroll for the same reason. You're Alice did. It helped me to escape from life. Life didn't strike me as being very interesting now. Nonsense invention imagination. Those were what I went for. I was more likely to read Charles. Dickens during the great expectations period more than the later Bleak House. I was more likely to read. Aristotle phillies than Sophocles. I loved the nonsense of invention and all of my life until very recently reading was helping me pursue my desire to escape Lewis. Carroll was another not trying to escape from life. Who's most exciting moments had to do with a certain golden afternoon in which he was rowing alison her sister in a row boat on the Oxford River. The marvellous thing when you tell me about falling and earning ancient Greece in that extraordinary bed your turn twice a day right now. I was turned every two hours through the night and through the day. Well I'm sure you know that the person who wrote the first major dictionary of Ancient Greece was Alice's father. It's by little and Scott. I do know yeah. I figured you had to so Alison. Wonderland's father gave us the Greek dictionaries true and for me. That's part of my escape into other worlds for you. Given Spring Awakening and Alice by heart. You're more interested in people growing up and becoming serious. I'm more interested in the or was in the terrible effort to remain foolish. The right observing. Full Mush Subiaco. We all run away and Alice certainly in Carol's vision of her was a runaway. If when you're reading Alice by heart and you should. It's very different kind of book than Allison Wonderland but when you read it. Read Your Alice and repeated in the version called the annotated alice tell you another mathematician named Martin Gardner tells you all the hidden secrets. The anagrams the hidden jokes and you. You're Georgia trump's open at how much a writer is taking care of in his attempt to evade reality in your book. It's the bullets. And she has to live in it and her best friend. The white rabbit is about to die and she has to let him. It was very exciting to me to go into Alice by heart largely. Because it's not my Alice. It's a book it's textures are not surface textures. It's It means to penetrate whereas Lewis Carroll is a man of the surface. He May let Alice Fall. Down a Hole. That hole is anything but sexual. She grabs jaws of Marmalade facing in the in that. This is an attempt to make an alice for a generation of people who want to hear more about maturation. Yeah Hi leave again leaving childhood behind it confronting grief and loss and what it means to grow up but it's also about in being a book about a book and what a book can mean to. You. It's about how book can help you through. Those hardest times in how beloved Childhood Book Can Stay With? You all your life that you don't have to leave it behind but that you read it in a different way you take it with you and you read it now. It means different things. You said several times that your father I have I am. How does how old are your children? My children are now in their early twenties. Have you encourage them to leave childhood?

Germain children but I think I've been very President MY CHILDREN'S LIVES. I think I'd go through their struggles with them so I don't particularly push them toward greater adulthood. I think I had some of my shelter taken away or felt I did yes ills. I thought it was kidnapped for me and so I think I yearn for something that maybe I didn't have. Yes no that I can understand that. Because you see my salvation. I grew up with my grandmother. Living in my house. She lived to be over a hundred years old several years older and she was born in Russia. She didn't speak English. I would speak to her in English. She would talk to me and Russian and yet and we'd play hand games games with each other's fingers And sing songs in Yiddish about those fingers that she taught me and we played what you call cat's cradle which she in Russian yiddish called L. Battle we play with string and so that was what I wanted. I didn't know that I'd get to grow up and be a bookworm. I mean it's a great privilege. It's a great honor and a great surprise and I'm sure you're surprised by how you've grown up to growing up at all. Yeah growing up at all is such a marvelous and inexplicable mystery.

"By heart and it is about. It would be like for a young person. Also named down was to read Allison Wonderland during the blitz in London. She has a friend who introduced her to the book. A guy who she was friends with from the age of six who she most attractively met in the Giraffe House in Regent Park and he introduced her to Alice in Wonderland and from that point on all the way up until the dropping of the bombs. They acted out Alice in wonderland when playing together. So this is a young adult novel Alice by heart which is a novel about reading and about reading books that alter your life and your heart and your mind and your language this boy who she was in love with in the way of passion not sex from the age of six now has to burke losses. He is dying and he's down there in the underground station where people are hiding out during the blitz. He's input into seclusion. Red Cross. Nurses are tending to him and two other children. Alice Spencer is She casts them in her mind as the Cheshire cat. There's a Red Cross worker. Who's like the Red Queen? There's a doctor who speaks in Latin diagnosis words and he reminds her of Humpty dumpty and his analysis of Jabra walkie so she's living underground the way Alice did in the first version. Lewis Carroll was probably my first love and Steven. Sater was led to this book by producer. I believe because having written about teenage passion in Spring Awakening and having revolutionised certain kinds of musical theater. It was suggested that he like many others. Take on the opportunity to do something theatrical with our yes. These adaptations will get one aspect of Alice. But as for being adaptations of Alice in Wonderland and through the looking glass they fail. My Guest Steven. Sater has not attempted that. This is an experience of a girl who has experienced homeless. Who's been marked by hours? And now she is in the blitz during World War. Two trying to escape back to wonderland when it was first proposed to me to adapt allison wonderland. I thought it was such a terrible idea for the because the book is such a series of almost hallucinatory encounters these visitation these phantasmagoric visitations. Let's say on the cipher like British young British woman. She has no real character. She has nowhere Arcturus no objective and I had spent eight years adapting spring awakening. Which is you know. The first great German expressionist play and learning by introducing songs. How we WANNA go on journeys with these characters that the songs take us into their hearts and minds spring awakening by the Great Franz Vehicle and author of the Lulu play which turned into a fantastic opera person. Who did vote trick? Um It's part of the history of German literature theatrical literature at its most bizarre perverse intense. What led you to say okay. I'll do alice when you might have gone onto Lulu. I have often thought of going onto Lulu and I love Alban Berg's I love that opera so much that I tread lightly around it books meant everything to me and I'm saying this is someone I know who I'm saying this to. I was very ill as a child. I was confined to bed. I was confined to my room. Books really were my world. They marked my life and I just thought what an opportunity to create a show about what literature can mean in this dark time in our nation. I think we have to reaffirm the power of the imagination and try and reignite wonder in ourselves That was the spirit within which I took on the show which became an eight year journey of its own for five years into that journey. The producer said to me. What if you created a book to China that is terrible idea? I'm not gonNA write a tie in book. And he said you know but like a book of pictures and the moment he said it. I just thought of you know what is use of a book with Pictures Conversations. He and I began to think of a book in conversation with all these other books that I'd love this histories centuries of British literature that met so much to me that classics that I met so much man what a book made what a book can contain of Culture Lewis Carroll who wrote Alice in Wonderland Name Lewis Carroll whose name. He was a math teacher and rector. I think Reverend His name was trawls lot would because he had a starter this dude and he would say Dodo Dodge. His students called him Dodo. And there's a Dodo. Allison Wonderland down in the underworld bought by accident. Because he was telling stories he liked young girls. He liked to photograph them. There are people who have their suspicions but he seems to have been entirely innocent but if people have a different way of thinking about it that is also a possibility but there is a Dodo and there are the characters of Alice who are now down in the underground and the Tube station during the blitz. And they're being classified by our Alice. Who is not just a reader? She's a memorizer. Y'All she knows Allison Wonderland and the truth is that Allison Wonderland is magical accident. There are chess games and puzzles in it. There are anagrams and there are a word games. Their a word puzzles in fact. It's a huge accident. Allison Wonderland is the book in English Literature. That anticipates James. Joyce in some ways. The first book that relate Martin changed my life. This is an as an older young man was was ulysses. I was at Washington University. I was studying with gas was like a mentor to me at that time me. Mcguinness was a philosopher novelist as well yeah one of the best literary. Sas We have the author of what I think is the greatest book to have ever been published in my time the tunnel and books of essays on Literature Short Stories. I mean he's he's God he only died a couple of years ago and we live in morning yes but he was my teacher. Yes and he We really hit it off in a profound way. Way I'm guessing I and I had a nice dead classics with him. I studied philosophy with him but he was also the person who introduced me to Boras. He was the person that introduced me to Cortazar. You know and Rocca But I in the middle of my Leno at the end of my sophomore year I was trapped in a fire. I was on fire. I had to jump a third story balcony to escape and prior to that I had spent the entire semesters studying ulysses and had written a version of ulysses you know what I thought was twenty years. I was in one thousand nine at the time. I thought I had the Hubris but I thought I could take. What choice did to the Odyssey and I could do that to ulysses and write the story about my professor and me. Wow and I wrote this work in twenty four chapters and I. It was my sumer and it. It burned up in the fire and burned nearly burned. You Hunt to Jim. I had to a newly per shattered. Fractured like twenty vertebrae and I was broken and burned and I was laid up on the striker frame which is like an earning board was turned every two hours and I had a page Turner I could turn with my teeth and I. I have to write something that can last and I began teaching and I used to talk. You talked to me before the show about your phone conversations with with bill he called me he would call me in the hospital and I began teaching myself ancient. Greek and I learned integrate without would I never studied at him? I never learned the form of of choruses the chorus Greek tragedy. There would be no spring awakening because it opened up to me whole possibilities of how songs can function and dramas ulysses has meant so much to me. I brought it to this today. Because it's so momentous to me to be meeting you think your. Alice is the Alice of a girl on the verge of maturing and she's experiencing like the characters in spring awakening a biological change. That wasn't the world of Lewis Carroll. I don't think he understood biological change. I think he understood that God could lead you pass sense into nonsense and then deeper into nonsense and so. I started to buy as a kid. His logic books because there were syllogisms a series of statements that are designed to help you draw conclusions but thereby goal was carol so they have to do with sun dolls and Buju rooms.

You have all this stuff to be grateful for war and it's all really been gravy and if this is when it's over I've been giving way more than I should have ever expected and once once I had that and a guy onto that take a lot of sitting there stirring in your from the Lord's prayer to that list I made that list what and a have we didn't have for just going if this is it given how much I've been given I'm okay with it yes and then all of a sudden and this is one of those things in my life. I would normally not even agree with somebody when they told me this but all of a sudden I felt a presence and I felt this warmth this unbelievable warmth and I felt this the most the most powerful feeling of love I've ever felt in my life in Iraq and it just R- and then I heard the chorale I didn't even know existed you know but you know all of a sudden. I heard I mean you know. I heard I heard the you know I heard the chorale and I had tears rolling down my face. Nobody could see it but I had tears rolling down my face of happiness and I I was so filled with love and I so filled with joy so filled with gratitude and that's it from there. Did did you ever talk about what was going on at that moment. I'm wondering it sounds like white. People have described to me near death experiences. I wonder if he were flatlined for a second no no they they were just putting it in the pocket for the water was. I'd never lost consciousness. It was all but it was an incredibly powerful thing and then now that I'm so infused with this gratitude. The gratitude stayed with you out of that experience that add experience. I had been working towards it yeah but I think that somehow I got help and that just and then I realized because because here's something that's really interesting as far as way hospitals are today versus back in the fifties when your children there were no toys. There was no television television. You lay in bed with rails twenty four hours a day. Try doing that for a month. I did it twice and it's it's interminable will actually until I started writing my book. I thought it spent a year in the hospital. Each time while it was only a month and each time was thirty one time I'm in thirty one the other and and you think you have nothing else to do but think and I would think how can I help myself here and I would. I yeah that's where I learned how to disassociate disassociating almost immediately in the hospital. I built the cave I climb into and and I could disassociate associates so much I wouldn't. I wouldn't feel what they were doing to me. It turned out that dissociating that which is not the healthiest thing mentally correct so how'd you gain control over there. I went. I got help therapy trauma therapy looking. MBR Or something or I you know that's really interesting. I went to therapist after therapist after therapist and an and and none of them said that I had a trauma or any one woman Sarah Cinnamon and she goes. You're in trauma you are. It's not that may have been a anachronism of history because around the late nineties so we shifted were suddenly everybody was treating trauma. We realized that's mostly we were dealing with so it was severe for me really was debilitated in my life. I mean you hurt my life a lot. Did you have how did you get drinking or anything like that going. That's no but I I just always assumed and this is in the book and this is one of those things when I wrote what this book. I thought I had to be naked. I had to be if this book was going to have any value at all. I had to be one hundred percent honest and I had to admit things. I didn't want to admit one of the things I had to admit in this book was that destroyed had never been given event where I just kept it turned turned into where I thought it was my fault which is typical child thinking right. My my family broke up part of the reason for grateful guilt guilty of the family breaking up I just carry all this guilt and all the shame can tell you the shame I carried and took a long time and and we did. AMD are one time it was unbelievable really loosened the whole thing right and there's even a lot more stuff now. Now you can access the neuro feedback and stuff all kinds of cool stuff because so many people suffer from this and you know in our in my world. It's what you know because you dissociate appreciate you don't regulate effectively yeah and so you try to regulate from outside your body with drugs and Saxon whatever Tang gliding whatever you were doing the gliding was sort of that in their sure sure but it's all it's always of either and then how people respond to that dissociation. Shen is protein to some people try to pull themselves back in their body by cutting in experiencing other people try to induce the dissociation and make it more intense and then just regulate with substances that kind of thing my my real problem with it was that I never felt. I was any good and I felt like if Tom Anybody knew me long enough. They would find out vigil flawed yeah so I would sabotage everything. I sabotage work relationships. I sabotage I've sabotage Taj relationships with women women that could have been magic and sabotage them. You know it's amazing. I ended up with women. I have now I mean in Bose's sanctum choose walk through fire with me you know and and the book doesn't cover this but I had my second heart. Transplant was a disaster how did here because it's not enough organs in New York so I had to come to. La and there was so much scar tissue that it was they had to my in my second. My first heart transplant my third open heart. The doctor told me he had to hack and saw saw way in and told that Roy dangerous. Yes and I told that to this doctor and he said I'm really glad you told me he said are you prepared for the pain and I said to him pains a funny thing. Eventually it stops so but my my my surgery was so bad I was on the how long heart transplant takes five six hours you right easiest right right. I was on the table for fifteen our boy. Oy Got Twenty units of blood and I was open for three days. Oh my God yes it was horrible. Oh I had damaged just from being on the table that long damage edged to your to nerves and and and so as if that's not bad enough they had me folded open and they would they the after fifteen hours they rolled back into my room would a big tigger Durham on me and my wife's looking at my heart beating actually my new heart and and and they rolled me in and out several times looking for this bleed or they couldn't find i. Have you know normally that you've you like three Lavar. Large holes right drains. I have five because there was so much blood loss okay so that's bad enough but now they've had me out real. I went on a win on the ninth. I got the heart on the ninth and woke me up on the eleventh after closed me and they closed the woke wilken up because I was getting dependent on the on the vent and you know what that right so yeah so I was getting dependent on event ventilator and when they woke me up because my you know the top ribs of cartilage those were bent back and for three days recent they dry holes into your sternum to wire you closed. I mean it's a really painful thing. They overdosed me on paint kills so so what happens when you're overdosed on paying for you then you stop breathing so they said okay. We have two choices the vet will he'll be dependent so you don't have a garden though or or no painkillers for five day. Oh my God and that's what they did. Oh my God five days of Nope Ninety three from that yes I do. That's why I'm bringing this up because now it's been three years three and a half years and I have have been able to get a handle on it sure I came out of that. Operation Changed in a way I never knew could be changed and I had two different doctors. Who's tell me you went through the kind of pain prisoners of war go through worse. It was horrible. It was really horrible. Pain happy said yes and and she doesn't call it. PTSD because it's been ongoing she calls it. I forget what she called. PTSD is usually a single event the kind of thing but like she always compares to she being my my therapist drama like something like that she he says it's more like an onion then PTSD which is tougher and and it's I came out of this thing you know here in La.. I knew I was different..

"But that happening when it comes back to the other things we had a bye after that Steven A, and we could've took an easy on them. Or we could have been hard on them. And I thought about all the giant word that you were using. Started with the letter. A you know, what I've had enough of this that I'm gonna agree with you. And we went back to some old school top love for the ball for by week. And it really made guy decide either get on board or get the hell out of the way. And I think a lot of guys felt the exact they waited I did. And we've been basically undefeated ever since talk to me about Eric Dungy your quarterback. He's completed sixty percent of his past got about fourteen touchdowns five in the sepsis on the season. But clearly, he's also your second-leading Russia's rush mobile seven hundred yards this year. I mean, this guy clearly is capable of making making plays with his feet but coming into this season. There was noise about what they would be him or devito as your quarterback, or whatever the case may be what are your thoughts about dodgy how he's performed this. She and how he's grown since last year. You know, I think the biggest thing about Dungy today done you never had competition at this position came. He came. In a backup. Freshman starter got hurt. He became a starter. His second year. There was no one here. Capable of beating him out is third year year. You know devito was here, but he was playing so well, then it got later on the season. You didn't have the rule where that guy could play four games for free. And then to beat oh was red shirted. Good. And I think the competition that Dundee had in practices has really helped Dungy to remember what it's like to be Ongeri the dog that wants the bone. And and I think we're seeing the best Dungy right now. I think some of that stuff have to do into Mito. I just finished talking to tempt Tibo a little bit earlier this morning on my television show.
