Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes Resign From Fox News
"Know there's a conservative crack up going on inside the beltway as Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have departed from Fox News. There's a story at the American spectator about addition by subtraction at Fox News with which I disagree. Molly Hemingway quotes from it approvingly. Molly is a good friend as his mark. Byron York works with both Jonah and Steven Jonah longtime friend of the show, Stephen a's used to be. He drops a nuclear bomb on my head a couple of years ago that I didn't see coming, but I don't know what that's all about. Byron York works with everybody and apparently amicably like I try to do as I quote tamale Lincoln's first inaugural. We are not enemies. We must not be enemies, but friends, Byron, what is going on? Well, good morning you. My official position in all of this is that I wish everyone well. Yeah, you and I pretty much adopt the same view on beltway, penda tree. Yeah, well, what can I say? You're a Fox News contributor. Do you have a conflict? I don't want to put you in a bad spot. No, I am a Fox News contributor. I have been since 2006. And I've been happy to be Fox News. So I think that that's my story right there. And by the way, I am an NBC News contributor though I've been exiled and they're about to breach my deal. I don't know why, but I've been exiled. So who knows what's going on inside of network executives trying to figure out their audiences? I think this all comes down to trying to find your audience and keep them happy. Well, I mean, there's always been this a lot of commentary about thoughts about having almost being like the old broadcast entertainment networks. In the sense that they had the news division and then they had entertainment programming. So people said, well, the prime time program on Fox is kind of like the entertainment programming and the special report and approximately Sunday in the whole daytime, really are all about the news division. I think that's unfair because a lot of news is made during prime time on Fox. But clearly it's opinion driven and clearly Steve and Jonah became increasingly uncomfortable with the prime time programming. So I am not sure what to say beyond

"When it welcome to the show doctor Steven cue doctor thanks for joining us We appreciate it Oh it's great to be here Dan Thank you for having me Sure So doctor I watched your interview with rapt attention on Martha maccallum you apparently have some experience with the Wuhan lab have written about it I read you're up and The Wall Street Journal And there were a couple of things you had said in the interview one of them you had mentioned is that there was some evidence of either fragments and correct me if I'm wrong or sequences of other viruses in one of these labs and one of them was a virus called nipah which when I looked it up I was pretty frightened I mean I don't do you know fear porn like some other outlets I like honestly in science but that sounds kind of worrisome to me Why would this Wuhan lab have a deadly virus like that and why would they be manipulating it and could that affect us here Yes unfortunately everything you said is correct So the Wuhan institute of virology not coronaviruses So yes what we found was that in December 2019 samples from patients got sent from a hospital in Wuhan to the Wuhan institute of virology and put on a machine to sequence what viruses the patients had These machines can get contaminated however with background work that's going on in the laboratory We identify that the nipah virus is being manipulated through a process called synthetic biology in the laboratory right now This is where SARS CoV-2 was probably two years in 2018 2019 So this is very serious Because as you know this virus is 80 to 90% lethal as opposed to the 1% plus or minus that SARS CoV-2 is So we really need to stop this activity now and get Congress and whatever group is can get behind us to

Why Do We See Anti-Intellectualism in the Church?
"I often talk my nor my bugbear is People who claim to be intellectual who have a philosophical bias against faith. It's wrong it's a philosophical bias. It is illogical but on the other side there are people in in the world of faith who have somehow in a knee jerk way adopted a bias against the things of the mind against the intellect. There are people christians. There almost nas ticks Who don't want to hear about reason they just wanna be kind of floating in the ether. as though faith and reason are opposed to each other. So tell us elijah stevens. You've made the film send prove. Why do you see that in the church. Anti-intellectualism i think that happened. During the great awakenings. It was not a part of the church until like people like finney came along and said look to reach the frontiers. We need to make this stuff. Simple emotional end. God use that but it stripped out the mind and so in the american wait wait wait so finney in the nineteenth century during the second great awakening right. He kind of emphasized. Let's keep it simple. Let's not go into the intellect because we're trying to reach the people on the frontier. I mean he actually made a strategic choice to do that. Yes and that kind of split. The church part where you have high intellectualism on one side and low focus on the power of spirit and then high focus on the power of the spirit and high emotionalism. And it's like there's this divide but that hasn't always been the
Filmmaker Elijah Stephans on His New Documentary 'Send Proof'
"I go. I hear about miracles. Some of them are baloney but most of them are true. They're people that i know and trust and they give you details but we live in a world where people act as though there's no such thing as a miracle or who i've never seen proof i've never That's sort of legitimate In any event. I've often said to friends of mine like ken fish or others. That you know you've got to document this because people they won't take your word for it. They people are very skeptical. Well there's good news. I don't know what it is but there's good news. No there is good news. I know what it is. I know what the good news is. And i know what these small g. Small and good news is today. There's a film out called send proof it's about the very thing i have been discussing with me. Filmmaker elijah stevens. That's you yes. Stevens now you come to us from reading california right. That's far away a long trip. That's where my friends of bill. And benny johnson live and he relation. No no relation or relation. You you made a film called cent proof about the very thing we're talking about so i wanna find out first of all. Tell my audience in thirty seconds. What what is this film. This is my journey to go. See if there's evidence for miracles especially healing miracles. What the doctor say what the philosophers say what the skeptics say. What mike shurmur say or james randi guy who call peter popoff with an ear piece. I try to all those. Those are super skeptics. Super scott who are pretending to be like harry houdini with the spiritualists and they ounces. They're trying to undo the now. Listen that's not a bad thing. Because i get annoyed would be putting it mildly. If there's any tomfoolery. And he phoniness whatever. Now i've not seen any but you know that there's some people out there but the to my mind. Almost all of the people who talk about this stuff are are are straight shooters because there are a tiny handful of frauds out there. Hollywood goes with the fraud narrative and you see all these films about fraudulent faith healing and stuff so it's a great thing that you decided to make a film like
"stevens" Discussed on Insider Interviews
"When it comes to be to be at a fear level at petit gic level. No it's the same concept in need on between b. and beat ac- but down on the ground of course we're talking about a very different buying process which is nbc to be. Which is why. I love be to be. It's more complicated. it's longer. It involves more individuals. All of whom have to be engaged with an influenced. So it's a a different animal. Well let's talk about verticals then. Is there a difference in marketing services. As a business versus You know consumer goods to vendors or distributors in this context. No the the big difference is purchases that are made by a single individual versus those that require multiple parties and an example of the former would be typically ecommerce mail order and the the the the business categories might be services but more likely it would be like replacement parts on the supplies and other product and service categories. That don't require a lot of people involved in the decision when it comes to raw materials professional services technology other business process oriented purchasing manufacturing those typically involve a large number of people and so the whole sales and marketing function needs to support that just to wrap it up and i'll pay homage to your first book which was about a trade event and event. Marketing i just got back from my first in person conference in almost two years. Thank you podcast movement. It is really great to have the chance to see people up close and personal and then also you know. Put my hands on some products at a booth at work gloves the whole time. No kidding todd and meet some of the reps and i did not shake hands but that human aspect again just circling back but of course in in your book and another famous ruth rant and i think that should be a new column is that there were many booths. That did not sort of jump off the page at me. I didn't get what they were yet. Beard shaking your head. People say that this book in two thousand and five. It can say mistakes so especially with bead be when you're communicating something complex. We have to be mindful of that. So what's a lesson from as we hopefully get back into more in person or event areas that we can take away from that book. Yeah let the impetus for writing. That book was exactly the story that you're you're mentioning where i would be on the show floor walking up and down the aisles and trying to decide which booth to approach and have a conversation with and the clues that are available to make. That selection decision are primarily about the messaging behind the person who standing there if the messaging is buzzwords. That don't convey a good reason for why i might be interested in having the conversation. They're not gonna get me to stop. and then. The other big pet peeve that i wrote about was once i do decide to stop at the booth and i say so. What do you guys do anyway. When the rep at the booth did not have a cogent value proposition. To explain why i should care. And how they're different from their competitors internal shining the practice So i'm seeing a through line here and it starts with the very first thing we talked about with your your linked in. Don't be a jerk rant. Don't be as you're on the show floor. Don't be show floor. But it's also the fact that you can't be too light hearted and do sort of like a clique. Beatty sign even on a show floor because there were also booed set were brightly colored and in lovely banners. But maybe there was a smiley face. It said have a nice day. I don't know what your product has. An right can't be too complex and go for the jugular either in your messaging. So again brand has to come through but with that story with that clear message and with helpful information. That's gonna draw me in so that's on the show floor on social in personal selling in our content a nice wrap up that the theme that has really threaded. Its way through our conversation today. Yeah well thank you for this conversation. Ruth stevens Professor stevens taught us all a few good lessons. And thank you for all that you do and your three books and for ranting and love it.

"stevens" Discussed on The First Degree
"Is something that really really complicated this case and a complicated the public perception of megan even further and honestly. It's not a good look at all. So it turns out that. On december twenty eighth of two thousand seventeen a week before alex's death he had opened what's called a quote unquote transfer on death account but the firm that handled all of his investments so he had one hundred eighty eight thousand dollars in this account and during this process alex designated someone new as a to a hundred percent of his money and you can go ahead and guess who the new beneficiary was. If you're guessing megan you'd be right and again not a great luck you had made her. The beneficiary and believe wasn't investment account. I'm not sure if it was an insurance policy or investment come anyways choosing beneficiary of of a lump sum of money hundreds of thousands of dollars but it was awkward. not getting was one of the motives someone. A series pitched was that it was a killing In the motive was money related so we thought for a while that money was involved. Maybe maybe they were lovers and that he wanted to do this. The change of insurance or money around to to give the her as she was planning on that being kind of a motive for killing. That was one of the theories that was pitched out there. The transfer funds to meghan was completed on january. Six two days after alex's death and you have to imagine what it was like to be alex's parents hearing about all these events that unfolded denying that your son was suicidal than finding out that this one hundred eighty eight thousand dollars is in designated to this girl. Yeah they were not happy. You lost your son. That's awful and then this is just the kick in the teeth where it's this like. She had to have done something. There's something here or she or he was under her spell or something along those lines. Well i mean think about this whole case so far right there it's why would you have done it. Like what the hell is going on. And it's like okay. Well now. here's your motive like there. It is it's money and like there's a reason for if she did have a hand in what was going on. Well that's fair but here here's the thing they're not married so it's not an automatically default. She gets his money. They've been dating for three months. He went in and made this proactive effort to transfer his money to her upon his death and then he happened to die of civic leader. Possible suicide a week later. It's almost like he planned. It is my point in all this. Because i really feel as though he planned to kill himself that night i i mean all of the signs point to it. Include this is the nail in the coffin of that theory. But then you could look at it the other way like what billy just said is like or did she have him under some sort of a spell and was like kind of controlling the situation on her end. Like you could like everything else. In this case you can look at things both ways and they kind of make sense. But then also don't anything's possible. That's true anything's possible but it looks bad for megan again. People are just in the public hearing these like reportings in the news. So it's like. Oh my god and she plus she benefited by one hundred. Eighty eight thousand dollars. Of course they're going to think she's guilty so you're probably wondering if you're listening. Alex was a coast guard academy dropout us. Twenty four. who what twenty. Four year olds. Have this kind of money savings. Yeah it's a lot for his age and having no job right other than like re we'd use as or wherever. He just works for fun. But according to an interview given by alex's father the money was from his great aunt who didn't have any children of her own so she put money into a trust for him. when i was turned eighteen. The money became his alex. Who's good with investments. He was frugal. He didn't spend it so needless to say when alex's father found out about his sons money being transferred to meghan he requested a court order temporary restraining order on the money for vent megan from touching it and the stevens listed several reasons for this restraining order including quote. It appears the activity taking place in the woods surrounding pine swamp road was planned for a period of approximately two weeks during which time the descendant and making schaefer focused irrationally. On this event the document also states alexander. Stevens was quote not of sound mind or capacity when he executed the transfer. As time passed. Alex's family filed motions to extend the restraining order on the money which were granted so naturally. The police wanted to understand the connection between this transfer of money to meghan and alex's death and you've got to think there had to be one right especially we we watched so much crime in listen to so much true crime. Oh yeah it seems like there has to be but the parents are also in this difficult situation because they're trying to say he was not sound of mind which potentially could lead towards a Effecting the case against meghan by saying that he was suicidal. You know what i mean. So they're kind of help them out. It doesn't help them out there but and got these parents at his field. This whole case is filled with contradictions. Yeah because it's all like motive based like the biggest thing with me so far. I know we're not necessarily at like the condemning megan phase but she has no motive like this was his initiation of the money. It's not like she took out a life insurance policy on her husband like she's just as passive sort of and she would have the motive if he transferred it to her than she does have the motive. She might not even known about it. That's the thing it's like. She could not have even known so. We'll have to see you know but again it's just one of these amazing curiosities about this case right. So months are continuing to pass. And the case continued to age with no significant developments in the case and the speculation and curiosity continued. So people batted theories and ideas around read it and social media as they do especially in cases that happen recently and then on september eleventh of two thousand seventeen a little over nine months. After alex's death there was a development and it's hard to say whether onlookers believed this was long overdue or whether this was a surprise development coming out of nowhere. The megan was arrested. She was charged with second degree murder manslaughter and also assisted suicide. So all of those things at once. I didn't know that you could charge people with multiple hunting country each other. That's that's the curious thing where it's like. She did something. We're not sure what so. Needless to say when the state brought charges against meghan it's almost as though they themselves didn't know what they were accusing her of but they cover their bases by charging her with murder manslaughter in assisting in a suicide with. This indictment indicates that they believed to be guilty of contributing to alex's death. But how and why. They didn't know and they didn't really care to explain these initial charges. Every step of the plane that led to alex's death seemed to be artfully crafted by alex himself even prepared to have his money transferred to megan upon his death the trial of megan shaffer for the death of alexander stevens would be one that drew the eyes of the community as well as the ir next week the travel seduce the public in the testimony from megan which called into question everything we thought we knew about this case. You'll be here for it. you'll love it. You'd better stick around for part three and we finally. I mean this is going to answer the a lot of the.

"Hypothermia and all that kind of stuff could have definitely. I mean you. You have no idea and the trauma it's like you just don't know what kind of state of mind your end to be asked these questions that they're taking account of. Yeah absolutely. I think the she had no sleep. She'd like stumbled with a broken back through the woods in naked. I think like your perception totally in the rain. I think your perception of what had occurred i. I wouldn't want to be quoted verbatim in a police or let me tell you that much i'd be like you let me talk to anyone well and then also i mean. Listen to her on the nine one one call to. I mean. she's barely talk. Her teeth chattering like she sounds like she's five years old because she's just so fucked up you know so fucked up. She's fucked up. Yeah and as far as whether first of all you're the first thing you learn in from from any lawyers you never talk anyway now but whether she had a family or their friends there to tell her that don't talk because she very well. I mean if you broke your back and had gone through all of that. I got to think she was on some kind of pain medicine being in that hospital. And then. I don't begrudge the police for for asking but you also have to have some backup of from your family saying don't you know. Just don't talk well. I think something to consider here. And i think we have to discuss our theories in an ongoing sorta degree through the course of these three episodes is that at this point. The police probably thought more people were involved. Are there other people who were there. I mean i think they're just grasping at anything. Explain alex's death in not necessarily even trying to suggest that megan is the culprit that it is unethical. It's unethical to question people Megan's back was broken or shoulder was broken. They put her in one of those neckbraces in transported her in be ambulance that way like as if she had a spinal cord injury if that person is so hurt then they shouldn't be questioned in in quoted for the record. You know it's just no sleep coal. It's not like they're trying to find alex anymore. At this point like you're not trying to figure out what happened to try to locate him to make sure he's okay or not like they found him and he's dead right so it's like do. We really need to push her to do it day one. It's like you're not. You're not trying to get information to try to find. Somebody like there could be in your could be another killer out there. There could be a killer on the loose. That's true i guess sure. Yeah it's just nothing makes sense. No no of course the question here is could make. Injuries have hindered her for remembering what happened. Was she filling in the blanks with guessing. You know her story was sort of outlandish so apparently the reason why they continued with questioning her despite her injuries was because it was determined that megan didn't suffer any brain injuries so they got the green light from medical personnel to question her. So of course is a possible that she was totally lucid in. Her mind was sharp. And should we simply line cover things up. That's possible but who knows another thing worth asking is also whether it's even possible to cut your own throat. I mean we have to pressure test megan's accounting of events while a simple google search which i did. We'll reveal that it certainly is possible and it's happened several times but it is relatively rare when we're talking about suicide and you also have to realize that at this point this was day one of rescue day one of body recovery. No autopsy had been completed so the decision to pursue this ordeal as a homicide investigation. Came from law enforcement. Simply looking at alex relay when they found him in observing his wounds as they were with the naked eye. So we have to ask. Is it premature to label this a homicide based on what we know so far of course. These are all rhetorical questions. We don't know. I mean things are still unfolding so there are other possibilities at play that law enforcement would need to consider so whether or not megan had been victimized and whether alex had in fact died as a result of self defense. Another possibility was whether or not other people could have been involved in this or responsible for killing alex. I could still be out there and thinking about this practically if we're pointing the finger at megan is the murderer. Is it even possible that she could have overpowered alex to such a degree that she could have cut his throat without him fighting back at all. At this time this would have happened. She had a broken back and she had a broken shoulder from falling off the cliff but either way we can't deny that there are pretty huge problems with each of these potential theories. Let's face it. There's a lot of bs out there.

"Our communications pc with the speaker help you. This is garrett county nine one one on transferring a caller to you reference to some laws hikers. Believe in in savvy river area should be there when i hang up. I believe Hello we are currently looking for to individuals and we believe that they're lost somewhere in e. I guess river reservoir Right around the savage river trail okay. Location maryland's savage river state forest fifty four thousand acres of rugged terrain located in the north and northeastern part of garrett county with more than eleven thousand acres of the forest haven't been designated as state wild lands. The exchanges heard was made at approximately two am on january fourth of two thousand seventeen. The nine one one caller was connected to garrett county nine on one dispatch but then transferred to maryland's department of natural resources police. The caller went on to share specifics about two friends of his who are believed to be missing. He referenced a specific spot within the savage river state forests. An old fire tower at high rock according to all trails dot com. Hi rock is at two point. Two mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near granville maryland that features beautiful wildflowers and the hike is rated as moderate. The caller continued and described to the dispatcher. How to find the entrance to this trail three yellow gate off a western port road. Caller had the coordinates at this location in his phone which he shared with a dispatcher. Alex alexander's lady's name. Megan schaefer that's yeah h at your okay. Your name even live steven to even with the b yes okay mood and twenty year old megan shaffer and twenty four year old alexander alick stevens were believed to be missing lost within savage river state forest. The caller is stephen. Moon one of alex's best friend since middle school you do some research on the status of alex and megan's relationship you'll find different descriptions based on where you look some sources referred to them as boyfriend girlfriend some call them friends and some refers to them as excess who were now friends either way. They were close. The real mystery was how exactly these two twentysomethings come to be lost in his dangerous wilderness in the middle of the night and more importantly why according to meteoroid ports the search for alex began with his twin sister tristan and she called stephen moon looking for her brother when she couldn't reach him. Stephen hadn't heard from alex either and without talking to him or knowing with certainty. Stephen could think of to places where you should look for his friend. One location was a local cemetery where he and alex used to hang out and have picnics together. The second place even decided to check for his friend was high rock at savage river state park at the top of the trail. There was a ninety foot tall wooden fire tower and according to stephen he believed iraq was a good place to look because recently alex had steven to send them coordinates to this location. The entrance to the trail head to high rock was forty minutes from the residential areas. Where they all lived. When stephen arrived to look for alex it was eleven thirty. Pm it was raining and the temperature was hovering around forty degrees in what he reached the base of the trail head. He spotted two parked vehicles. One was the two thousand ten hyundai tre. And the other was a two thousand six nissan. Three fifty z. These cars belong to stevens missing. Friends and nissan was alex's and the hyundai was magazines but there was something strange about the state. These cars were founded when stephen approach. Megan's car he observed that the key to mccain's car was actually turned to the on position. The car's lights were on and the radio is playing and there was a cellphone on the back seat. Alex's nissan z had the hood propped open and it was covered with some sort of liquid chemical and there was a bottle of motor oil on the roof. Down your enough. I saw this at the base of a trail head with witchy headlights on and a key turned on the radio playing. I'd be like that is good. It's straight up out of a horror film and also they whatever liquid chemical. That's all over the car. I would be scared. The car was about to blow up. Yeah honestly. I think we need to look at this as we go through the sequence of events. I think we need to be a discerning when we look at this. Because stephen moon pursues them down this trail despite seeing this creepy scene and i think that's very interesting. It's also because you're looking at this every time you come upon one car. That's on another car. Whose hood is open. You're thinking that art. Something must have happened. They might be. Somebody lost charge. They need to you. Know there's something wrong with one of the cars with the people go into the trail or would they go looking for help. Yeah we're that we're the going. There's no there's no world in which this scene is a good one right so the discovery of these cars validated stevens. Hunch that alex probably here and apparently meghan was with them and they'd likely hike this trail too high rock so using only a cell phone camera to eliminate the path in front of him. Stephen hiked more than a mile to the top of hierarchy towards the abandoned fire tower. We're in the middle of the night. And once she. He reached the intended location. He made some very startling and concerning discoveries he found melted candles. He found a backpack that he described as covered with liquid. That felt greasy. The backpack was filled with men's and women's clothing and he also spotted a container of motor oil. He also saw look to be a cat in a cat carrier. So a cat carrier one of those handled plastic boxes with bars in the front that you use to transport your pet to the vet. So his friend. Alex's cat scibilia this newly adopted feline was up here on this cliff in the middle of the night all by himself. And this is a new adopted cat. So stephen is thinking what the hell is going on here. The scene undeniably had concerning and very ritualistic undertones. So when stephen reached the top of high rock he was yelling for alex. A- megan as loudly and for as long as he could and he looked for them in the immediate proximity to where he was. He had no success finding So he turned around and he hiked more than a mile back to his car. And he took alex's cat with him. Stephen moon had reached the gate to the high rock at around eleven thirty. Pm and and his called nine one one was at about two am. So according to the reporting in the cumberland times news. Stephen was in the presence of alex parents when he made this worried call. He relayed the strange findings and the circumstances to the dispatcher and provided a description of the couple alex he's a white male with block longer hair and he wears glasses and megan as a white female with dirty blonde hair so the dispatcher obviously has follow up questions like does the missing couple have their cell phones with them and stevens says that efforts to contact them via cell were not successful. You remember steven spotted a cell phone in the back of megan's car. Stephen also provided more puzzling details. It's believed that. Alex and megan also have two ferrets and a small dog with them. So the cat. Stephen discovered was not the only pet that alexan meghan brought with them on this strange adventure this night. So it's.

"Like the young talent that you had available to. You didn't seem on the same page and as a result it might be time for new voice. I recall that being the case. Yeah so we go to all of that. You get bounced out in the first round albeit to the brooklyn nets new. Most people believe the favorites. And obviously you have jalen brown. And that's to be acknowledged you had. What can only be described as a suspect relationship with the marcus smart's of the world according to reports and things of that nature and you're moving upstairs to the front office you say it's moments like this where i get on people's nerves particularly white america and the nba community specifically. Because i point out if beautiful to be a white guy. It's just beautiful you know. You're ah question. Mark as a coach in some people's odd including important in in boston. But somehow someway you moving upstairs and the paucity of opportunities for african americans continue to dwindle and we talk about the coach. We ain't even get into black folks in executive positions. We got one black man with power. I'm talking about. He's the final say or basketball. I'm not talking about black folks record here and there in the front office where you're in the room and you play a role in the decision making out talking about what do and his name is. Messiah jerry toronto. We don't even have in the nba or black. Do in the united states. that's making the final call on basketball related matters. And somehow someway brad stevens who. I like who. I believe deserves to be a head coach on this level shaky season and he's going up stairs. That's my reaction to this. Max i actually don't give a damn about anything else. Pertained to the boston celtics right now. That's where my mind is. I understand it just beautiful things. Sometimes i'm not saying that what you're bringing up doesn't have something to it. I don't know if it applies here or not. I don't know if it applies here not messiah. Jerry's is interesting because when you point that out the one if they're max out all explain if what messiah messiah that this is there's a racial component to it. That is explicitly or unfair right. I was messiah. Jerry's an interesting case. Because i think it's a powerful one. He is the one black man who has the final. Say you're saying basketball operations. He's not african american. He's african and he doesn't actually work in. The united states works in canada. It's that's interesting. Maybe that's just a coincidence. But that is interesting. And i think it's a powerful example that points out what you mean. I think about someone. Like doc rivers. Doc rivers has won a championship. He did it in the league where he had a big three. No one else. Did anyone championship. And i think a great coach. Let me just say that. He's a great coach. I think most people agree. And he gets the clippers job where he's gm and coach and that's not working out because he was a bad gm but still a great coach. They take gm away but they keep miss coach and eventually it seems like the clippers dot kind of lost interest in each other and he immediately gets a plum job. Like who wouldn't want that sixers job. That's a real good job and gets the job as sixers coach and here we are again saying boy doc. Better not blow another three one lead. Because he's getting known for that but we know he's a great coach. Whatever the circumstances kind of make him look bad here the but we know that doc is a great coach brad. Stevens is known as an excellent basketball. Mind now what you're referring to in terms of his not using pieces properly. And i don't know about that i don't know or maybe losing some of the locker room. You mentioned how players can drown out the same voice after awhile. He's been there for a minute. Maybe it's a personality issue with certain players. That can happen as a coach but they still value his basketball accurate and he was groomed by danny ainge was successful. Gm and so they can have some continuity with him in the front office. I hear what you're saying and at times you and i are lockstep with that message. This is wrong. I didn't agree with you. About steve nash. Because i thought that was a relationship thing with k. d. or kyri and had steve. Nash been an african american former great point guard and everything with that relationship. I think it's possible. He could have gotten that job but that's unknowable. Because he's not so. I didn't agree with you there and i don't know that i agree with you here. I think it's an interesting question. Your raise it. Yeah i don't know i agree with. Let me get in here quickly. The team that you're alluding to don't get frustrated. Steven have information. I got information for you. Relax you're going to have time to respond. The term is called failing up by the way. Molly sales. Don't do it don't do that. Don't do that please. don't do you have the nation or not. Okay yes i do. Yes i do so this is according to world just putting it out there. That stevens has been described as worn down since being in the bubble and that he welcomed the chance to make the transition and that he's going to lead the search to find the new head coach. That's what i wanted to get in their first of all i was wrong about saying messiah. Jerry is the only one raphael stone in houston. Obviously is the new gm that was recently the houston rockets. He that was recent he makes final. Say so i would just want to make sure i correct myself. It's does two. That's number one number two. This is why i'm anxious. I was anxious to get back in here. Molly and macs because macs to me in and no shake thrown at you whatsoever. You're making the mistake of interpreting my comments. The way certain folks who are friends of mine who happen to be white have made the same mistake when you say. The racial component with the boston celtics. I'm not accusing the racial component as it pertains specifically with the boston celtics. No more than i was accusing the brooklyn nets of that. No more than i was accusing urban meyer of that in jacksonville. I'm fully aware that it's the relationship. It's not because somebody was white. I get that they have relationships with these people. Sean marks had a relationship with steve nash. Urban obviously has a relationship with tim. Tebow the boston celtics clearly have a relationship with brad. Stevens i'm just saying that the opportunities that were accorded to those people don't happen for black people that's really. I started with a doc rivers. I know i'm just. I'm just talking about from now. I'm not talking about the individual organizations hiring somebody because they're white. That's not what i'm saying. i understand. it's relationships. I'm just saying those relationships don't exist for black people. You can't be a quarterback on the nfl leave the game for years comeback tight end and get an opportunity on an nfl squad. You can't not having never coached on any level and inherit a championship caliber squad with katie and kyri and james harden on away. And you can't be brad stevens and you're struggling and this questions about whether or not you're going to get fired and then turn around. And you have a disinterest in coaching and it turned around get elevated to a off the spot. All i'm saying is no. I understand that your point us i. I had no misapprehension. I want to be very clear. I understand your point crystal clear. The reason i started with the doc rivers example is because the examples you're.

I'm just you know trying to stay sane like everybody else and Happy to talk to you and So glad i released my book this year because it lets me live in the past and My neighbor place could be now really is. That's a great statement. Because right now. I think a lot of us are living on the memories of the things we found. Joy isn't whether it's concerts whether it's traveling whatever it is. That's that's an excellent statement to begin the interview with yes. Thank you It's really saves the actually through all of this I never wet a person who believes in living in the past. I was always one of those people that you know. Point of power is in the present moment Kind of people. I believe in You know you can't you can't you. If you live in a truly in a moment you can't see depressed but if you worry about the future for the past you know you're doomed but i've since discovered that Well things have changed. Things have changed. That's the bottom line So yeah now actually. I'm very happy I'm so happy that i lived a life to the fullest. And you know my book as you know you've read it. There's so much in it. And i keep remembering so much more on whether i'm doing an interview or just randomly. I'm in the bathtub or something just so many memories. Come up from my past that And i'm not gonna say i took it for granted. 'cause i didn't i always knew while i was on my best life traveling all over the world and do crazy stuff. I knew i was doing crazy then. I this voice in the back of my head said someday you won't be able to do crazy stuff. I thought it would be to. Someday i'd be married and a family. I wouldn't or i'd be old guys traveled so much and i looked at old people canes own. I need to do this long. Yeah but yeah. I had no idea that we'd be Just not allowed to do it. Well we're going to get in all that. Because i really enjoyed reading this book And there's a lot to cover and one of the things that i really want to tackle. Is the things outside of eric. We're gonna touch on eric a little bit. Because we are music podcasts. It will be a little bit about it but there's a lot of stuff beyond your story with him. You have your own store. You have your own journey. That is quite compelling and very interesting because not a lot of people have lived the life that you have and there's a lot to get to and you know i always appreciate a someone's journey and someone's adventure in life because survive your life that i have not a lot of people have come out of it a success story and Not another hollywood trainwreck or another like byproduct of the seen And survival story earned. It's empowering well that's interesting that you say that because when you talk about empowering and i know that there's the first question i always ask every time we have a new guest but i do want to just touch on this really really quick when we do talk about eric there. Is that sense of someone in your life at a very young age. You're in your early twenties. He was really the first person that i believe really made. You feel empowered in really offered you. Support was prior to that right. I mean we talk about your parents in the book you know the dynamic with with the two different relationship with your father and your mother in there really wasn't a lot of support and there really wasn't a lot of you know uplifting intrinsic. Don't know if i knew ya. I don't think i knew what support wise until i had eric. And that no right. And that's a huge moment for you. That's like that really that moment. When you know. Eric is always supporting everything you wanna do. And it's always behind in support of unconditionally. Your whole journey in life really begins there right everything else before. That is just all kind of preparation in all kinds of. You know what. I'm glad we're not on video. Because i'm already tearing up on.

"Exact on that spot very nice and always a catch Nice number take ten claimer give everybody. A quick primer on You know on the surface and and style wise if they haven't played delta and haven't watched on what kind of you know terms of speed in terms of off the pace go in short Go and long a couple of nuances about About the oval. We do run a lot of five furlong race if here we don't it's a six furlong track. We don't run the traditional six furlong sprint. Because it start to close to the turn in the six tracks so we run five furlongs quite a bit that's a one turn sprint race and speed does dominate that race You mentioned the surface. The surface is very sandy. The sabine sand a lotta. The surplus comes from the sabine river four miles to our west which divides louisiana and texas. So it is a sandy surface. We haven't had hardly any rain the last three or four weeks so it's been a little dry. We're expecting rain later this week. To look for maybe to change. Tighten up a little bit now that the longer races you can you can get a closer and especially with a jockey that knows the track up the backstretch. They have to be in position for that last term because the stretch only an eighth of a mile long so look for the experience jockeys in the longer races. They have a better sense of pace here and get in position going into the turn. It may take some of the new guys a little while to adjust to that. The mayans sixteenth rates is the most common route ray smile and mild sixteen. We do run around only to turn so it's like a mile track. However you know it's a long run to the first term because we started shoe which is five hundred fifty yards up the track from the finish line so they'll get along run and a good way to position themselves before the first turn in the route race is the most quirky race here and we run. A lot of these two is six and a half furlong because that when you start in the stretch and you do hit the turn rather quick after the finish line But you can't get some closers and a lotta times. Jockeys will use up their horse six and a half going into the first turn to get position and those horses sometimes gasping for air turning home. So you'll get closer and fix for lunch six and a half furlong race interesting somme. How how how quickly do you think. A new writer will adjust to Learning the learning how to have a ride here. Well the experienced ones like alex. Burs and riot bury those guys. I think they'll pick it up pretty quick and they've written on track all over the country. I think they're pretty familiar with it. The new younger guys got some twenty twenty one twenty two year old young jockeys never been here before it's gonna. It's a learning curve. You know several three four five weeks before they kind of settle in and of course they won't be riding the top stock so they're going to have to do the best they can with long odds sources. So those i would have maybe a little chink in the armor of your handicap in those. If you see a young jockey bike a We have a puerto rican jockey here this season. I can't remember his name off top my head now but anyway i did a video with him on my channel the other day the younger guys inexperience you know. Think a little bit about them before you take them in a tough spot. Excellent and. I'm just looking i don't see a I don't see a It doesn't look like you've got any bugs any any bug boys or girls not at this time. I mean we have young ones.

Next a absolutely agree and i i want to thank the team. The louisiana horse reporters Who said you know. Try to get to don and and help promote the start of the meat and Happy to do it Don thanks so much. Thank you so much. Steve have a great day. Don stevens there you go and you know we had a nice run with the with the The jackpot and the princess and would enjoy we you know do some promotion of it leading up and and You know they. They were really aggressive the way they they advertise than and you know tried to market the jackpot and they turned it into something something substantial and It came you know it was a very clever placement to the way it it you know. It was after breeders cup and set set in a nice spot. I'm just pulling up to see. Two twenty. seventeen was when they got clobbered and that was it and has not been revived demeanor. Terms of it doesn't have to necessarily be a million dollar race. Either you could you. Could you know have a well. I mean look at this race today. For instance at mahoney. Here's a two hundred thousand dollar A three-year-old sprint. And they've also got that nice distaff that they run at mahoning As well for that ones. That coming up i should look let me see. That's coming up right away or if they spread that out a little bit that that's usually in close I think they run these steaks fairly close proximity. I know i do see. They've got the They've got the Glacial princess and the ruff kirchberg. But those are seventy five thousand. There's the mahoning. There's the the distaff that they run which is also two hundred that always seems to get a good To get a good field well from starting in two thousand and two that delta jackpot and gun.

"Jail a times track of notice. Well you notice. He didn't have stalls at remington park this year. He's made fun of that ship courses in and what he had to do. But you know the controversy other really well You know we try to keep. It's going to be a little tougher. Might be a little. Maybe during the early part of the week And with indiana over with yeah it it it you know. It was easier when you were a night. You know when you're running at night you you know you seek it out and and you know it was sort of spill into your you know into your lap if you were wanting to play in the evenings Talk a little bit about what we're seeing here early on in the meat because boy from a from field-sized standpoint These are you know. These are very attractive opening salvos. I think that's one of the selling points of delta downs over the years that we've been supported so well by horsemen and once the casinos came in here in two thousand and two the open up. Triple eight thirteen. Two thousand to the person have just exploded for track like this. They're they're re target find around the country track the size of these kind of purses and I think for that reason we've had a great steak schedule. you know. In the past we have to run with the jackpot million dollar race. We talked many times with that. We had hurricane that actually kinda stopped that race. Back in seventeen hurricane harvey that had all the flooding in houston and over towards this way in louisiana called it off that year then the next year that raises done away with the horse from wanted the money put somewhere else but But you mentioned the steak schedule. The first six days of the season we have a stakes race every day all four days this week and the first two days next week. And i'm telling you what if you wanna think your teeth into a good race. It's not great but it could be a great at stake saturday's delta mile which used to be run on jackpot day hundred thousand dollar purse and we have some horses in their pioneer spirit. You may know that name. He's wondering almost a million dollars. He's one church joe. He won The tenacious and he also won the fifth. Season up at oaklawn stevens. Answer one. that's rates last year. Both of those horses from dior far masino rojo another horse working on a million dollars in earnings multiple graded stakes winner from shane. Wilson's bar hunk of burning love. Carl rover throws a very talented running in their go. Look at his speech. Figures races stack so this saturday afternoon. That's going to be one heck of a race. That's the only saturday believe we run during the meat because of this holiday week and interesting and i'm just pulling it up now and i Because i saw mary ramp alenia had written about the race and I forgot to. I forgot to were printed up This is this is. there's no line yet of course but This is a nice very nice edition of this and the the the mile you talk about the jackpot and the princess and the mile was it. Did it get graded. It was well on. Its way it seemed to getting getting a great three designation Maybe when things when when things ground on the edge of being graded and then of course you know break. The card ended and we had to lower the person this year. A lot of them are lowered simply because we were closed. The casino was closed so long for covert and then the hurricane. That's caused a dent in the person's a little bit which should be back up again next year but Yeah that race over the years. There's been a heck of a a heck of a good race. I remember two thousand ten Decisive moment and gourmet dinner. Their remember those two coming from florida made for nice big seven hundred dollars. Exact and i know some guys are all over that one because surface here's much life that down there go free park west or the old home. We used to talk about that. The sabine sale. And and the fact that that David fox would bring horses kathleen o'connell and everybody that you know that had That loses show that that kind of a surface and had a horse that could get over it You could come in. I think What duke of mischief and drama. He's the one big drama eight before we wanna breeders covering. He had a heck of a career. D love this track. Absolutely and and i think i think i think David brought him back a couple of times In addition the treasure chest is is went. Friday i i want to say friday night trade to say night the treasure chest as well on friday yeah for the phillies and mayors again. That race used to be run on jackpot day as well. So that's another stack field right there. i'm looking at it on my computer here right now because i looked at the other day when they drew it It's race number eight. Yeah she's our fastest is in there. yes gorgeous. Who was very good as a young. Now that's only at seven horsfield but that may be one of those. Where like in the late. Pick four or the pick five. You'll be able to key in on something you know so little bit different there. You get a full field on saturday with the mile and all those accomplishments. So i think it's a nice mix for opening week done rundown run down some of the things You know in terms of the betting menu any innovations You know any enticing a a well priced multi-race wagers. What do people need to know. Okay well the wagering format much like it has in the past. We've found a kind of a niche there years ago. The newest thing we added was rolling daily doubles and a lot of guys wanted those. Because you get into the pick four pick threes. Let's say missed the first leg but you really like your horses and you studied the pick for you can play a pick three. We have only pick trees or the rolling daily doubles with the same horses that you did all the handicap with you have to get blown out in the first leg so rolling. Daily doubles rolling. Pick threes the early pick four starts in race one. The late pick for is we're going to have nine. Wreath programs will begin in race. Six the pick five there only be one on the car that will start in race five and of course you have the normal single race wagers exact the try that super fact that went place show so we think we have a good wagering format. It's been successful in the past and we're going to keep on with this year how about How about attendance We know fairgrounds Is has starting the season with out Patrons what's your status or right now fans will be allowed. They were allowed your this summer for the quarter horse. Meat ot be. I don't think you. I'm not sure if you can go into the ot but you can wager on simulcasting out on the track apron in the patio because they have ways around windows and television monitors out there so you can be outside social distance. Where your math do all that. Sort of thing We don't have the lookout restaurant this season of course with the daytime running on monday. Tuesday wednesday thursday probably wouldn't be well attended anyway but it is still under. Construction walked through their mama to go. And it's got it out. They're getting ready to redo the whole thing so it'll be awhile on that we do. Have the rosewater grill or rosewater. Let's say which is down on the track level and you look right out the window and you're literally twenty feet from rail. You're right there near the horses. So that's a good way to watch. We have the food court which is open to fans but yeah and the casinos opened. You just have to. You know you must wear a mask and we urge everybody to be safe and social distance but other than that right now to start the season fans will be allowed Couple of a couple of opinions may be got a couple of thoughts in ear to get people ready for tomorrow. Well let me look here. I I didn't know it was giving you picked up on your your quick There is a horse. I did like a twelve to one. I think that. Oh yeah ray. Seven number three always a catch at twelve one morning line. That's got out of writing for mr martin. The new trainer tab that one as a long shot i believe will be on the website later today and of course the stakes race tomorrow is going to be the be connected. Sixty thousand dollar raise. The stray is a really good horse. Scarlets blackjack for tommy. That's that's gonna be hard to get past.
