Make Your Zoom Meetings Soar Remote Work John Paul Mendocha - burst 14
"Doing Zoom and working remotely because that's the world that we're currently living in today, and it's probably going to be the world that we're going to be living in for not just. A short period of time but because we're starting to understand that you know what we can get a lot of work done remotely in very a lot of industries we need to grasp, hold its concept being able to do as zoo meeting and do it right all right, and so we're we're GonNa talk about some of these little pieces here as we finish up here in this hour so. Let's talk about a couple of really we you talked about the green screen, but I think one of the things that two things that we need to talk about is audio and video. And bring up to really fabulous points and I am right on it and Let's. Let's talk about the video portion I, what should we know about video because we can make some mistakes there Why I think the the first mistake that we make is that is that when we get into the whole realm of video. We immediately go. Hey High def right I want high. DEF. and. All that sounds good because of course, we're watching I definitely and television and by the way watching something happened. Is Infinitely more. Is Easier and simpler than you actually making it happen. So you want to look at your resolution and see if you can actually tone down your resolution because. They're probably not gonNA WANNA see four K or whatever. And by the way very few people have the bandwidth to do four K. Right now. So video is important and and you WanNa make sure that you understand how your video works, how how it's going to be put together and you can. You could start out inexpensively and you can go very expensively You can actually get a really decent zoom call out of a iphone or android with with a face with a front facing camera. But what you WanNa do you WanNa get a stand and have this stand hold it instead of you because let's face it. If if you're holding your camera, you know if you're holding like this way you know and you've got this little jitter will cause your hand will get tired and you're doing this stuff You're not going to be not going to be very effective. So just make sure that you understand that and and you know. Test see what is like also, you can make videos on your on your PC, your Mac you know on your laptop makes videos and see what the camera it looks like. Big Mistake that people make is they got nostril cam going that's great. You know which one I'm talking about right. Looks like it looks like Sherwood forest up there but you know you got these guys who they don't even they're clueless by the way if you want to know how to make your laptop, go up up up, I will give you the cheap way to do it. You could go get some paper that would go into your printer and just keep stacking up keep stacking up. Reams of paper until have the right line of sight. So people aren't looking up there and going. I wonder. Don't want them to wonder, hey, how's how's that? For a really inexpensive way to do that and you're right you know you can take books or whatever to raise your laptop if you don't have a separate camera, I think probably you and I, I have a camera on a tripod that's a USB camera attached here so I'm looking right at it, but you don't have to have. That you don't have to spend that money to do that type of thing. So you most as you point out in the book, most of your laptops have a camera in there. Let's get rid of knows. Kim Let's. Let's get some books and let's get that. Let's get that raised there. So we can see you right. Let's talk about audio. Let's talk about audio because I think we we think that because Ron video that audio is not important, but it really is critical. Isn't it? Audio's very important. Now, I I happen to prefer just because of my personal style and what I do is I wear I, wear a gaming headset so you can go buy a gaming headset for seventy. Bucks. Plug into a USB and it does a good job. It it. You know it sounds good by the way it kills lots of surrounding noise and that makes me the MIC stand. You know. So matter how much moving my head and it's funny because I, what I'm. Looking at buying headsets I was talking to. Somebody. Who is really a good audio engineering and we're talking about my problem, which is I had a really nice microphones like Jay has in fact, I have several but the problem is I would come off center. So my volume would keep getting funky and changed and he said, well, tell me how much you move your head and I said, well, it's got like halfway between Ray Charles and Stevie. Wonder. and. Said Okay here's the solution. The solution is you have to be the Mike Stand. So I bought actually have multiple headsets but for for seventy bucks at a best buy, you can buy cheaper but you know you now have this and it's great isolation people are I watch a lot of people who take the little headset that comes with their phone and they have that they're holding the microphone up to them and let's face it a microphone. That's the size of a pinhole. That's that's what your voice is being replicated through. Right so you spend a few bucks you'll get a, it'll be a lot better. Some people don't like to wear these because it makes them look I. Don't know whatever. But you know you gotta think in terms of a good microphone and you can get pretty decent microphones for less than one hundred bucks.
Why Juneteenth Isn't A National Holiday
"An increasing number of businesses are observing Juneteenth as a holiday today and some lawmakers and activists are fighting to make Juneteenth national holiday it just what would it take to make that happen we're gonna explore that right now as we turn to the KCBS ring central news line and welcome Dr Darrell Harris USOC professor of political science at Howard University specializing in black politics and political theory Dr thanks for being with us this afternoon yes thank you good evening seems it seems as if there's a lot of momentum towards this idea of turning Juneteenth into a national holiday do you think we might see that happen the short answer no however the Congress members of Congress Jeff introduced legislation to try to get it to be a national holiday however if we reflect on for example the Martin Luther king the attempt to get part of the king holiday it took fifteen years of our goal to get that to be a national holiday however I do think it is good news that there are state just recently of course Pennsylvania New York Virginia governors of those states signing executive orders are recognizing Juneteenth as a paid day of leave for state employees you also see institution companies universities I would have dared to announcing that they will give their respective employees the day off okay day off so those are good signs however I think it's a a bigger struggle to get it to be a national holiday there's one more roadblock in the way with respect to moving in that direction and that is the conservative climate that we live in today which which is the robot to get it to be a national holiday it's quite a process to get it to be a national holiday and then even when you get Congress to act to Congress at then it only applies applies to federal holidays and those living in the district of Columbia it's up to the states anyway right yes yes the battle we have a lot of course think of the who controlled the state legislature especially in the southern states but not limited to the southern states it would be a tremendous battle to get it to be a national to get to be at stake for those dates to sign off on it being a national holiday professors you mentioned it about fifteen years that lots are going so that's been my point is that the rest of the big hurdle that we live in a conservative era and it's very difficult to get anything through Congress especially with the Senate of blocking the way it is you mentioned it took some fifteen years to get Martin Luther king junior day designated as a national holiday for those who are working towards this new effort are there lessons to be learned from that effort well I think so I think that with respect to well you do need pressure and we reflect on the king the efforts to get king the day to be a national holiday it took hi as I recalled Stevie Wonder I think that his involvement helped to turn the tide and moving in that direction but it took a long time our resistance in fact there are some state even after it became a national holiday from state Arizona for example still resisting recognizing that day at the national holiday thank you very much for your time we appreciate a doctor Daryl how worse Heris I should say of Howard

"stevie wonder" Discussed on Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio
"MILL STREET RADIO UP NEXT SARA Moulton. I will be answering a few more of your cooking questions. Welcome to milk street. Who's calling my name is Kevin Gray. And where are you calling from Kevin? I'm calling from Lagrange Kentucky. How can we help you today? Well I've a question that involves something which would seem rather simple which is hot water. My question is my wife when she is cooking and she's an excellent cook but when she has a recipe that needs hot or warm water especially warm water. What she'll do is use water directly from the TAP. And I have a question about that because I've had the drain hot water heater before and I see all this stuff at the form them all that crunchy stuff so I guess. My question is because you know hot. Water heaters have sacrificial magnesium and odors golfers. Crunchy stuff in them. Just doing this. Get into the food. We noticeably changed the face of the water. Yes well not just that. It's just not as healthy. I mean it sort of depends on your pipes and where you live. And what's going on but Hot Water dissolves contaminants more quickly than cold water. So No. I think you're right and that she should not be using the hot water she should get cold water and then heated up. Chris. You're right the hot water heater. If you've ever drained one and I have a scary is very scary and so you're better off with cold water. We've also done. I've done tests years ago where we were making bread and using bottled water versus tap water. And we could actually tell the difference in some breads that being said if you know once a month us half a cup of warm water. It's not gonNA hurt anybody but in general agree you WANNA use start with water or use bottled water. If it's something where water is going to be important part of the recipe. Yeah or filter water. Yes I always wondered about that and I thought well I'll ask the question of you guys. Actually I have a question for you. My wife is also very good. Cook and the question is how do you get your significant other to change something they do in the kitchen and they actually change getting word that you do have a psychological? He's got an advantage here in that he can ask us and what we say matters to his wife whereas what you say. Your wife doesn't matter at all. That's absolutely time sorry. We have to find a different expert for you. Say No I've got I can say Kevin I call Kevin and he said you should use a walk for this recipe. Not a scam. And she'll say who the heck is I'll just say Kevin's the extra walk expert. Okay okay thanks for that. Okay all right take care bye bye. How do I mean he doesn't Cook Now? I know you're married so you have. Yeah does little fights yeah. He does things that are annoying. So you obviously have to pick your fights but do have a psychological approach the worse. It's very very indirect. Yeah so you know like one of the things he does collect the New York Times and they pile up in pile up in pile up in you know maybe one day. I'll sort of accidentally knocked them over when I walk. I and he'll notice very so you know things like that but you don't do things like someone once told me that leaving piles and newspapers around a fire hazard. No that would not work. Yeah anyway moving on next call. Welcome to milk street. Who's calling hi this is Marilyn. I live in Mesa Arizona. How can we help you? I started making candies and I wanted to use up some leftover Milton chocolate and it had a white is shawn disappeared when melted it but reappears when it cooled and my question is what is it. Is it bad for you? It's cocoa butter crystals which ended up on the surface because the chocolate was stored in too cool or too hot a location. You can just eat it Eric. Garner too hot too hot. And of course. So don't put in the fridge but keep it in a cool dry place you can melted and use it in a Brownie for example or a cake are okay but for dipping for example. That's not gonNA work. Because as the melted chocolate cools the fat structures changed permanently and those crystals are going to reappear. It's fine for baking a cake. Okay it's not poisonous harmful to eat. You could actually sometimes. I have a bar of chocolate and I'm baking and I notice it's white and then I can just eat it. That's good news. Yeah strictly visual that too. So don't worry about the thing. Is You know those beautiful bon-bons you get an a chocolate store where the chocolate seems to snap when you bite into it. That's been tempered this whole process and the thing about chocolate. That's got the blue monitors. It's not bad for you but it's GonNa have that bloom and also it's not going to have that snap that you want. You could get regular chocolate and temperate yourself before you use it to dip into as a matter of fact Jacques Torres. Who's a wonderful chocolatier? He has a method for tempering chocolate in a microwave ruin. Yeah that's really pretty cool so you might have since we're talking about. You Might WanNa just google it and find it and try it sometime yourself to seek since it sounds like you're gonna make chocolate candies again. In which case you're going to want it to be tempered just so it looks nice but just to boil it down to the simplest google tempering chocolate in the microwave. Jacques Torres T. O. R. E. S. And he's so much fun to watch anyway. I think Sarah has a little thing for Torah. Well he's such sweetie pathetic accent. It gets you Jackson Maryland. Thanks for calling. Don't worry about the White Blue Care. Take Care Okay bye radio. Now's time for this week's cooking tip from one of our listeners. Hello this is Debbie from Littleton. Colorado and I'm calling to recommend keep the ingredient vital week blue ten on your pantry shelves..
What Is Castoreum, and Why Is It in My Food?
"We're talking about one of my favorite topics. Which is the food industry in America? Going back to the beginning of synthetic flavors in the nineteenth century. So let's get into the weird history. Kastoria him I don't know if I pronounced that proper but I read that I always fell off my chair. So this comes from a beaver and beavers were hunted. I thought because the beaver hats but I guess for this what is Kastoria. Where does it come from? And how is he is? Okay so let me tell you about how I found out about this ingredient when I first started writing about and talking about the history of of artificial flavors. I'd sometimes get this weird question from somebody. In the audience somebody raised their hand. And say is fake vanilla actually beaver but and and the first time. I heard it. I was a little taken aback. I was like No but I looked into it a bit and the thing. That's being called beaver. But is an ingredient called CA- story him. That isn't actually derived from the beaver anal gland but from gland next to the anal gland so near but but not quite but and important distinction. We might be important to sanction and beavers. Use It to To mark their territory and for other beaver ish things But it has long been an important ingredient in perfumery as other animal. Musk's have been and there's a lot of overlap between perfumery and flavors so historically it's very expensive ingredient you know once I figured this out this part of the perfume part of the story. I started answering. The question of is faithful reliever but with no beaver but is way too expensive to be used in fake vanilla by then. Was it used for a while for that? Well I started looking a little bit deeper into the history of vanilla flavors especially before the pure food and drug act and I saw that sometimes. Musk would be listed as an ingredient. Not specifically beaver. Musk musk a small amount. And then I started talking to flavor US especially older flavors about this and one flavor is told me He had trained at one of the big flavor. Houses in the nineteen seventy s flavor by the crafts people really who who build the artificial flavors or the natural flavors The flavor additives in foods and beverages. He was a novice and the flavors who he was training under made him prepare. Kastoria extract as part of one of the routine tasks of learning how to do it and so he got kind of this tray of Beaver glandular sacs and he had to turn them into an extract. This is what they do. The New Guy Right now your first day he. Here's here's some beaver sacks we want you to extract the the compound his his the master flavors training him said I. Had you do that to see if you had the heart of a flavor rest? So when it was used in flavors which was rarely it was used in really small quantities just kind of to add a certain nuance maybe to the very best vanilla flavorings certain Genet Sekwa. Yeah so I think it was also used some terms in raspberry flavorings But what I found was that in the eighties. It's it almost stopped being used entirely. In fact I couldn't find anybody who had any memory of ever using it who worked in the industry for the reason that in the eighties. A bunch of the big food and beverage companies started striving to make their products. Kosher is not kosher many things but it not kosher okay. So let's fast forward to today's world where artificial is a real problem for a lot of food manufacturers? You mentioned That trick. Cereal tried to switch to natural colors and ditch the high fructose corn Syrup and that really didn't work out too well for them. They got really dull colors. So what is the industry doing now that they've created you know three or four thousand artificial flavors and colors and now a lot of consumers want products. That don't have them. It really depends on the on the case anybody. Who's gone to a supermarket within the past? Five years has almost certainly notice that all kinds of familiar brands now are proclaiming. Nothing heard official rate no artificial flavors even things where it just seems so ridiculous like natural cheetos right. So what are all natural cheetos? What does that mean well? I can't really answer that. In fact nobody can natural flavors are defined right? If you look on an ingredient list and you see an item that says natural. Flavors there's actually you can go to the code of federal regulations and you can read what that means. It means fruits leaves skins seeds from natural. Yes exactly and artificial. Is Everything else? But there's a lot of ingredients that kind of straddle the line or ways of processing that kind of straddle the line a major class action court case recently In the past ten or so years has been about orange juice. Tropicana orange juice. It's is it a one hundred percent juice. Well it is but it's actually juice that's been re combined with flavor packs right of so basically. It's been everything in it comes from orange juice but it's been processed to a degree that some consumers claim that it no longer counts as a natural product. So so the the conundrum here is what is natural because as you said it may all be derived from a plant or from a fruit. But there's a lot of processing going on so it may be natural but it's heavily processed. The second thing is if a Cheeto is natural doesn't mean it's good for you know it's still a cheeto which probably is not very good for you so there's a lot of complexity here in terms of if the consumer wants to eat foods that are good for them just because it's natural is no guarantee that's good for you right right absolutely while the definition of natural is still sort of up in the air it carries so much cultural meaning we associate it with the kinds of images that you see on the front of packages of foods that call themselves natural right pastoral groves and this kind of harmlessness and this kind of good for you ness right you you. Can you feel safe assuming that something natural is good for you and also good for the planet and I think that when you look at the way that the kind of environmental cost for instance of relying on an all natural food chain or things that kind of reasonably fall into what we consider natural that costs might be much higher than using processing technologies are ingredients that we might consider synthetic so? There's always a kind of balance here
Premature births: One of the biggest public health threats facing the U.S.
"Chances are you know someone who was born prematurely last year one in ten American babies were born too soon before thirty seven weeks just station reportedly Albert Einstein Charles Darwin and Stevie Wonder were all preemies that puts me and my family in very good company we've come a long way since my grandfather was born weighing about one and a half pounds my great grandmother kept him alive by putting him in a very low temperature of an I was born about two months early in nineteen seventy nine and in two thousand fourteen my daughter Mira was born at twenty eight weeks weighing one pound thirteen ounces she spent two months in the neonatal intensive care unit five years later she's the spunky S. kindergarten are in New York City so while you may know someone who was born prematurely you might not know how devastating premature birth is for families for communities and for our country as a whole being born prematurely comes with a host of risks ranging from death to lung disease to neurological and learning disabilities the United States has one of the highest rates of premature birth in the industrialized world at ten percent that's for a lot of reasons including big problems that are bad for Americans health like racism and income inequality babies were born early often need intensive care and life support at birth and ongoing therapies as they grow and that is not cheap in fact pre maturity costs the United States at least twenty six billion dollars a year when my daughter Mira was born her ears are still fuse to the side of her head she had one third of a Cup of blood in her entire body her brain was not fully developed she was still in the process of becoming herself in a very literal sense we are so lucky that near as now I. healthy happy five year old knowing how far she's come I hope you'll forgive me for saying I think my daughter is amazing and all premature babies should be celebrated no matter what their outcome has than but just marveling at them isn't enough we owe them more for premature babies just being born can leave them with a pre existing condition not all families can access or afford the care their children need and not all pregnant people can access

Brown Sugar: A Tribute to Hip-Hop
"I saw brown sugar. I was completely taken over by the music of course it's the first thing you notice about the movie the wonderful wonderful tribute to hip hop and owed love letter however you want to call it hip hop that permeates every scene in movie this because eight chess turn but the thing that carried me through watching it over and over and over again was the relationship between Sydney played by Sonali Johnathan and trae played by Taye Diggs. Their relationship is as equals not something I grew up watching calms. It's not something that I saw men and and women respecting each other to other as if they both believed each other to be intelligent equal human beings and their relationship gave me hope for what love could be wasted US whereas Philip Too potlucking at the block party you remember. I beat machine boy. You thought You d nice not our eight. Oh eight this simplicity provides a fine line between eloquence. That's implying. This has a dope. Line was my first published article. I can't wait for you to come out when you left I went out to. La Times every Wednesday a Yo com go to the park and read. It made me feel closeted love brown sugar. We begin the movie with Sydney entry as kids first learning and falling in love with hip hop and this love of hip hop is what connects them throughout their life. Sydney becomes a writer and editor of powerhouse hip. Hop Magazine Andrey gets into the recording recording industry. He's the man behind the artists and he gets into this field because of his love of hip hop but both Sydney Andrey are struggling to reconcile this. It's ideallic love that they have of hip hop with the reality. Did you sign a new act without consulting drake. I saw and I had to sign the man Never Messina. Shit like that a black and white rapid duah. I know they go here Kamal Man. You know that's just a gimmick these guys they have like no skills just straight it up. Why now I saw last night a real MC. This cat deserves a shot. He came with the real original real real hip hop given them. I'm trying to sell records to people will actually buy them so I need a boob. Who's going to be able to give me that M. T. V. rotation baby now been akin ran and ten the heat of future Babe Eminem. He paved the way they gonNA be like Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder Paul McCartney and and Michael Michael Jackson. Are you serious. Yes you really want me to do this. If you want to work for a millennium records that's what we do here. We make hits as we see hip hop grow and change we also see Sydney Andrey grow and change and it was this intertwining of love and hip hop that really spoke to poet Nick George in fact when lead producer. Maya emailed him to talk about brown sugar trigger he had this to say when I first saw brown sugar. Both love and hip hop. were new things to me. I thought I understood both I also thought their utility in my life was simple and yet through this movie. It became apparent that both are unpredictable. One of the major themes is evolution and allowing a thing to grow beyond what we thought we knew you about it.

Luckily they weren't saying. I thought maybe it was like a jump. No she had this nice wooden pass to walk on and then she couldn't walk loudly because it would make noise on the wood so i sorta stuff is awkward.

Everyone was like his that Stevie Wonder or a Stevie Wonder looking guy, and it finally came down to like, I think he's not looking at anything. And so we were like it's and then it he's holding that book upside down, right? And then we heard what he was saying. Oh, it is Stevie Wonder, but it was a good five minutes where people were crouched around. Well, this probably a reasonably he wears sunglasses because this is look like they can see is that what you're saying. What what are you saying? No. I'm just saying we were like, oh, he's no. We just had was a guy wearing sunglasses. Oh, I thought you were seeing his eyes. And no, no, no, no. We thought he was a thing. We thought oh, this is maybe just a guy wearing sunglasses who go with long braids, exactly. Like Stevie Wonder. But no, either Anderson because she does magic she knows all the mental ISM stuff threat. And no end and does even do magic. Yeah. We'll with once a year with her dad. Oh, yeah. Her dad's, Harry Anderson. So once a year, she would get the call to to do their dual duo act. And so, and so she would be I know she knows it was at the magic castle on the one one of the time. She invited me I was at its town with feelings. Yeah. I know I'll never get to see it again. But because she's in that whole circle of the magic castle and all that she knows that cocoa is like it's literally just a trick. The interpreter is is feeding all the information with just like CoCo doing gibberish in. The interpreter is just saying like, oh, CoCo says this this this end. End. But isn't it? Amir silently. No, it's not something where like anyone can interpret what cocoa saying, it's interpreter is interpreting. The same guy all the time. Well, how do we talk can't? Wait for the record is when I explained Stevie wonder's blindness since I asked if foreign blind, wait, really real name BB eight. Yeah. He's BB eight real name. Alan wonder he did all the noises for BB eight. Trooper. His real name is Steve Lind like Steve land. Hardaway Judd kipnes. Steve Lind Hardaway Junkins jug. Kipnes the young Stevie Wonder was born six weeks premature in Saginaw Michigan. The stunted growth of blood vessels in the back of his is caused his retinas to detach. The oxygen pumped into his incubator exacerbated the condition leaving the tiny baby permanently blind. I wonder if there's something that you could take care of excuse me. I'm getting emotional. If that's something that you can take care of you know, with modern science we'd be able to catch it now. So you're something home. Maybe. Hey, I tell the cocoa story or no. Koko story. All right. So I have this. I had someone whom I sat next to in a lot of different classes. Would you have that where like they would do? Cleon? So I would be in several classes sitting next to this this girl, and she was my buddy. And I really, you know, she was as far as I was concerned out of my league in just she was my buddy, and we would always talk, and so my friend, and I who is out of your league. No. But I'd have never entertained. Everybody's gonna have to have his side kick. Brain guy. But I I was purely just happy being or friend like she was she was very cool.

"Are you ever under dad's album? Yeah. Well that one I was too young. I was in the youth choir on one, okay? But yeah, no I have worked with my dad and record it with them in Britain form and whatnot. So we stay close. Did he trip out when you were like, I'm not only going to do gospel music? Yeah. Yeah. Nationally. Sure. Yeah. For sure that was there was some some pushback from my family, initially, mostly. I think in the beginning. They felt like it was just a rebellion. You know, a preacher's kid just rebel. Yeah. Why they once? No, I don't think. So I just felt like a genuinely wanted to talk about more than just God. You know? I just felt like there was there was so much more in creativity to talk about life. You know, all the things. I if you believe he's the creator of all things, then let's talk about all those things he created not jam, you know. So it wasn't a rebellion for me. It was just me feeling a need to talk about more. And I think when he saw that my purpose was, you know, as potent, you know, and as important, you know, you let go of that. And just got behind me like a like a great father. He's been my my biggest support system. But yeah, I'd be lying. If I if I said that he didn't have a dream of me like, you know, following footsteps for sure. Yeah. So you know, I I was in New Orleans one summer for an internship. And while I was there. It was I gotta go to paula's morten's church. And I did and it w-. Was amazing because he does this thing where he understands very well the theatrics in the timing you need to make a church service into make a song a church service pop. And so there's some song the choir singing, and he's like still sitting down because he hasn't gotten up yet. But the choir sings a song, you think the song is done the band brings back up. Your dad gets up from his seat goes to the lead singer takes things like it. Start singing bring it back. And he this is such a precise read of timing and pacing that is just impeccable. It's impeccable. I think I think part of that is is just instinct part of that is just he's been doing it for a long time. And you know, and for me, he he was the greatest teacher just being able to watch him, you know, le- lead over. Over people, and you know, control the room and be sensitive to a room. That's really what it comes down to being sensitive and being open. Yeah. So I couldn't help but become a study performer. You not got to watch him for years and years and not just watch him play behind him. You know, be connected to that same process. What is a thing that you find yourself always bring into your life show. So you're performances that you learned directly from him or saw all the time. You think the I think the involving people have watched I've been a part of things and watch things where people just perform to the audience, you know, but for me church was and what my dad did was involved. The people talk back to me sing with me. I always say, and I'm not exaggerating that I have the best sounding audience of any artists. Yeah. My audience can sing men always any city. They're harmonizing without me asking, you know. But I think the caller responses is definitely the the biggest thing I took from him. I wanna talk about another influence of yours, which anyone listening can hear Stevie Wonder, we actually asked you ahead of his chat to share with us. If you that you like to hear during the holidays UCS Stevie Wonder song called someday at Christmas postal. But it right now. Fan. Kids play with. Cimber hearts Swiss seat. Men.

We're giving really am soul much credit right now. So undeserved credit, we'll. They. Yeah, there's there's. There's a print song where they spell. I swear to print song, but it's woman in game. Maybe a lot of those or they spell for so long that you're just like, are you kidding. You lose track of what this billing. They just keep throwing out letters. It's like an SNL Scott. Not in front of a pen to paper. It can't write this down as you're doing an actually remember what you're saying. Yeah. All right, anecdotes. Here's one when I ought to do this on the key of tour. Did we did that? I'll out of well. So yes, he did that album straight through. And then he also, of course, did a million other fun things like his DJ tick, tick, boom nonsense. But my favorite moment was the woman next to me. So he of course, has a setup and he plays merely instruments, replace them live and he gets lead in by someone and then he watched around the stage himself. Oh, and like of course he does right? Like the blind people. They, I'm sure that they have to very, very meticulously set the stage every night measure. Yeah, but the woman ex me was so freaked and every time he would switch stations, she go on, oh. I'm going, where are you going? Steve. Walk over the edge. It was so fucking funny. She will meet. Okay. No, I need. I don't wanna bring up bad things there, but because Stevie Wonder because he said the scarf that he's had, let's just into it evident ivory consign that happened to all during Paul McCartney's experiment and play around with various other pop superstar era. This is such a hard thing because like if Stevie Wonder, like none of this would have happened and you just be like Stevie wonder's the best. And now it's like you because legacies for so long. Stevie wonder's the best asterisk, I guess. He's not the best. Like what's that fidelity quote or they're like, should he be forgiven for latter-day suits? He you. It's like separate. Just thinking like separate artists are kind of what I do. I mean, you know, for me, it's it's not that difficult because artists often get listen interesting as they age, it's just an unfortunate truth. And so it just because he stopped putting out good albums, it doesn't diminish how incredible and how influential he was out the gate. You know yet it is it painful though. It you're like, I know what you're capable of where I know what you were able. I I, I know like trans happened music changes, blah, blah, blah. But also I feel like there was such when he was in his like p his classic era, you know, seventy one through seventy six. There was he had such a specific sense of melody there is a lot of he did a lot of just like walking up and down the scale. Lots of like half steps in like melody would go up and the gently come back down or the opposite. Like it would be a nice little swoop and it was just so distinct like you could hear even taken out of the arrangements. You could hear it was very much, Stevie Wonder written song, and then he sort of loses that even life of plants aside alike, hotter than July is so much better than everything else he put out in the eighties. Yes, but it already is losing that Stevie wondered distinctiveness a little bit. I think part of it too though, is that relisting to this? Obviously with twenty eight teen years. And we, we can't unhealed the influence that he had in the decades following. And so part of why I think the eighties albums sound so generic is because his work in the seventies was so RAD. A cold that it completely shifted where pop music went. And when there were all that all those like intricate little sin flynt's that everybody had by the time nineteen Eighty-four rolled around that was influenced by Stevie Wonder. He helped make that happen..

It's Dionne Warwick singing it. People sing it. She's the Mainzer anyway. It's on the terrible women woman in red. It is solo beyond were so bad. Yeah. I mean for me, it's don't drunk that same album is we discussed prior to you. I don't mean don't drive. Drunk is the obvious answer. I have to bring up. I wanna top to you. It's like, isn't UV. Yes. But also literally the kind of thing really like, why? Why am I listening to this vice this una? Why Stevie y? Yeah, it's like it's a conversation right between a black guy in an old white guy from what I underst-. Yeah. So he does that political enriching discourse. He's a. Yeah. Those are all back all talks. So we didn't get to talk about it because of the air we decided to do. But I sure more, yes, that Alba has some weird song choices on it, including your favorite one from musical. Young lovers, which is from the king. And I when I saw the track before and I was like, that can't be what I think it is flooded in. That's a really. I mean, I don't know, doesn't that seem weird choice? It's such a choice, but also there's a Jackson Five recording of corner of the sky from Pippen. So like that was just a thing that Motown did you know they're such like covers a re recording it until it's hit machine that you know if they could get the rights to something they did. He also does at last on our actually light that Persian of it lasts very like Stevie. It's very upbeat, early, Stevie others fun. I also I remembered this on that. I was reading about that had been done by like eight other Motown artists. It wasn't office signed sealed delivered. It was for once in my life. He and he was one of the last people to record it and then they. Retired that because his. It was such a hit and all the other versions of it were apparently ballots, which is part of why is was so impactful in so popular. I Mike sharia more fucking beautiful song. I actually so when I was in the Wisconsin singers in college for a time, this was a touring show fire from three w Madison. So we we did a medley and we started with you are the sunshine of my life. We did my Cherie of more. We did sir, do, and I wish, and I end I think I just call the San love. You is what we finished with, which is? Yeah. Urges historic. So on that note, but it was still it was just really fun to actually get a chance to perform those songs open though. None of them ended up being my like favorite, Stevie Wonder songs, but that's still I have. I have a very personal connection with all of those. There's another early song. I don't remember what his on, but like one of my favorite early CV songs is I was made to love her. Got is like a short week, just bang of on. So that actually is funny because that's a connection to another artist did this season. Whitney Houston covers that I was made to love him, but it's actually a cover of shock. Cons cover of has Stevie Wonder she. She's done like three or four. Shocker conce rum. Honestly, Chaka Khan is a weird nexus forest too, because especially I feel you the one check on everybody. Everybody shook a gun that one that breaks into the whole actual song itself, which was a prince cover circling back with harmonica on that is Stevie of course, as well.

Like, you know, button face found thing is like, what are you doing? Listen to another star just like, oh, damn, okay. So that's crazy. One of my favorite memories with Stevie Wonder was I don't remember why, but are ants fannin Paul and uncle fan in polar staying at my parents place. And I woke up one morning and my dad had put on another star and my dad and baton were just like dancing around the kitchen, like making breakfast as another star played in, they rescind the Lalas and it was just like, it's like, so this. This album was so important to our parents. And when you think about it, like my dad will say like, you can't imagine what it was like animals came out. It was just like, how did this hat lick? It was the best thing to ever come out. And I totally believe that we, of course, like we get it all all at the same time as you discover it. But like, can you imagine this album coming out now? Like what? If one of your favorite. Titians had a few like really great albums before this. And then this thing came out and you're just like, what? Like it's the best present of all time. So you're saying it's like he's like seventies Drake is what you're saying. Sh- I know people like. Okay. I also we, we kind of skipped past it, but my all time hands down favorite Stevie Wonder song unquestionably knocks me off my. Of you. It's gorgeous. It also so much fun to sing. It is right in like any tenor. It is right in the comfort zone, even wanted like pops up. When even when the there's the key change on the second chorus. Like it's just perfect and it such. That's the sort of part where like every individual section of the song because it's just like verse pre chorus chorus. And then it repeats that. But each of those sections feels like it could be the chorus because it's so it's so very much its own moment, like the pre chorus of mixed weaken knots me of my feed. Oh, that's tricky. And then the reviews. It knocks me off. Off Maffei nuts. Me my feet. And then he goes into the actual course. I don't wanna. What. It's just like that that's speaking of some of the give me goosebumps when he when he pulls out that the like full real course for the first time, I'm just like, oh, God. That's right. Makes them we're the tones on this album are so all over the place that when he gets something like that, it doesn't feel cheesy. If later date Elms we're just like fucking ballot after ballot or mid temples log. You go through this like I can buy that because that also follows right after I wish one of the that funky base line that just comes in and rides and just overtakes everything when you're talking about joy. Like that's the thing is a lot of a lot of the balance to psych him in piano and it's sure, but here there's the swelling strings, and you can just hear that like the it's cheesy, but it's it's not cheesy because he's not just singing words like you towel. He means and every single moment of this song. And yeah, and you can. All everyone can relate is so beautiful. I, this was one seeing this one live. It was like maybe the for like everyone was singing this whole show, but this was like everyone was singing, and it was a great moment for me because I was saying. The women next to me. I love that. Right? And then like associates a singles. Great. Also, there's so many other songs. They don't think it as much as honestly black man, even though it's eight minutes long, that groove is just unbelievable. It's just super nes. Those.

So old albums came out in the house and I came downstairs one morning and my mom was listening to lessen the need of love today. The first track sweeping the kitchen and crying and singing all the time. And I was never forgot it like it's the most beautiful sentiment. It's such a beautiful song and talk about an introduction to one of the best albums ever. It's. So I also just love that this album starts with humming lake one just. Mm-hmm. Like you, even though you know, obviously has very intense than like fast upbeat moments on it later. Like it starts, it just eases you in. It's like we're going to just talk about basic like the most universal thing possible love often do cry on this podcast. We've ever cried you. I would cry every time. I did this podcast. I get goosebumps thinking about music. There's like, I can't listen to music when I shave my legs in the shower. I mean, I do. I don't get me wrong. Music is me goosebumps fairly often, but no, this that's on his so beautiful. This album is so so amazing. I don't know. I feel maybe you were there, but I got to see him do this life. I was. I wasn't sure if you saw that show the few years ago. It was an anniversary we went. It was just mind, Bosch, rose, like so spiritual. It was still amazing. Yeah, and it was so long and talk about Stevie Wonder being a goof. He is so silly. And once he got through this album, which like a force was very long and beautiful and like so like everybody was basically hugging each other by the, he then just went totally off the rails and made a whole character for himself him. DJ tick, tick, boom, and like was just segments of other people's dogs like he can do anything you want. Right. But he. He, I mean, seeing this live was in just insane so vehicle. It's one of the best albums ever. So. And then of course you have that new mmediately saves from Love's need. Love stay to have a talk with God, which when we're talking about life hard, Stevie of this San's looks like eight so that that's one where like, you know, I listened to it. I put on this album a couple times over over the years. And so obviously I I was familiar with it, but this week, the first time I heard have a talk with God. I was like, oh, right. And then every time I went back to this back to this week, it just played. Higher and higher, and I loved it more and more and it just like, because that's also one where it under three minutes. Yeah, like he does what he wants to do with that song, and then he moves on, but booth we're gonna talk about, let's just do two things because this is a magnum opus. He spent three years working this multiple producers army of musicians, some say up to like, you know, thirty different people were in studio at some point or another. Let's just do two things. I wanna talk about the singles and then Illinois talk about the rest because if we're gonna talk, you can't talk about the light without talking about surged to one of the greatest fucking songs ever. And as we were talking about earlier that horn riff that happens after the chorus, you know, after you feel all over then better than that..

"We're dealing with all these six, seven minute songs of his. And there's a lot of six, seven minutes, slow as discography. Sometimes they grow and expand. And other times they just repeat, golly as Terron talked about. That's probably one of his biggest weaknesses. I mean, the whole idea of a groove is that you bright it. Is that something that you enjoy coming back to time and time again, and there's some artists that can make twelve minute groups easy, and you're in it in your they're the biggest thing is that he doesn't necessarily know how to resolve a group like he finds it, he rolls with it and you know there's, I course, he's not really a bridge guy. He's really not when it comes. So I realized that, yeah, after I said it earlier, like there aren't a ton of Bridget's doesn't. He doesn't bring in that. Like third melodic structure. He may bring in a new. Ostrom, a new instruments actually, and facts what's changes, but the bass groove and the vocal melodies just keep repeating. Yeah, I would totally agree. Some of his long solves, I mean, it's kind of one of those things. You're like an a certain point, his producers or other. He's producing ovules ring with us. He can't mess up. He can't do wrong him continuing to play for seven minutes, the same thing, no one's going to be like, you know, really done, right? We'll specially because if they were going to put out a put it out as a single, I'm sure they were going to do a single cut anyway. That's like four and a half minutes. So as far as the album is concerned, he's Stevie fogging wonder. I mean, I'm mostly talking about signs of the key of life at this point. He's Stevie Wonder, and he's just one album of the year, two albums in a row. And so when he's going into sons in the key of life and he has all these eight minute gems aber Unitel who literally berry Gordy doesn't even have you thority to tell him, no. At this point, he's at the top of his game and you don't want to because what if what? If that. Eat minute jam is conic and some of them are, you know, when you're talking about like as when talking about another star, talk about those. I know I know we'll get. We'll get. We'll get all right. In the meantime, though, let's go ahead. Let's put the filling us as I finale at number four on a ranking. So guys, that means we are down to three, Stevie Wonder Elms in the tops laws that is talking book that is InterVision 's that is songs in the key of life and NIA. I don't know about you, but amazingly, it's pretty obvious what number three is to me, it's very obvious to me. Okay. Let's let's count to three. And let's say the name of the same. Just you just you and me go three, two, one talking. Are you. Are you. I wanted to count one, two, three, and you try? No, I realize often the moment exactly. Original. We just talked about, let's talk about the insecure order. Let's talk about talking book. I, so I did you know that you are the sunshine of my life. In terms of album openers though, since I leave. L. we're so like that. Finally with this, like you were a child and you didn't Google things, but like adults in, you're like, oh, yeah, should Google that finally was like, who sings that? And why is it to different people who sing the opening lines of this song? And I was like, it must be someone like really important. And I don't know. Maybe they're just people. I don't know. I didn't know them. And I was like, why. Starting your album. This is such is such an amazing album, and it starts with two is of your the sunshine in my life song by a man in a woman, neither of which Stevie Wonder. And that's the opener of the album of your choice of odd choice. Like, did you do you know who are? Is it just mean my missing is enforced. I didn't realize that the man wasn't him. It's not him. I I'd because then after those lines it is him right? Yes, that's the only time it's that..

"It was very funky and told all these great stories and attached to great pop melodies, and there's a whole thing we can talk about how. Stevie Wonder was the sole artist still played around with the pop paradigm. And he did a great job. He knew he had a white audience along with a black audience as well, eat crossover appeal, and he would smuggle in these very hard to hear messages sometimes into these undeniably funky songs, and the biggest thing is fulfilling. This finale feels like such an odd duck of these four l. someone called the four classic albums that remain because is a step back because it is not necessarily this holy cohesive thing. It is very much a personal album. It is very much good. Llanos is just going to say, even though there are songs that you've mentioned on here that are, you know, solid great, Stevie Wonder songs. There's nothing here that is pushing the envelope as much as the other three albums we have left like there's so much innovation happening in the early seventies with Stevie that fulfiling. His first finale is just like a yet. So it's an odd man out at it because there so many ballots here, which also I didn't even put this together until today. But this was the album he put out right after he was in a car accident that put him in a coma for four days, and then he like, came out of the coma, finished his tour and then started working on this record. So like when you look at it through that lens, it sort of like, I'm sure his worldview changed a little bit. So he wasn't in this like Inner Visions bureau place. He. Kinda had to find that again. Of the four were still talking about, it's clearly the lowest and and rightfully so I think you know, there's like with said a bunch. There's a lot of great sensors, handful of great songs, but like a package. It's not the best one of those per sure, but maybe it's not better than some the ones already ranked. That's what you're throwing out there. Yeah, unlike the Morris, it was that the more with how we ranked the ones that are there already like the only one that I would want to be higher is signed sealed delivered, but that doesn't make a ton of sense at number four either. So let's, I mean, let's just leave what we what she had the more I sit with it the more I'm like as much as I don't necessarily think this is not your ranking, it's not my ranking, but I also like I don't necessarily want any of the other ones to be higher, rush sense. And the other thing too. I feel like the part of the reason why there's that hesitance on further. Thank you feel that ways because filling this, it's very much because it sandwiched between these other albums. It's so interesting because see what you will about music on my mind. Talking book was brilliant expansion upon that. Inner Visions is a brilliant expansion upon that and villainous finale it's none expansion. It just it's a sequel. It's not necessarily the medically sequel but texture in terms of the tools that he had available. In terms of songwriting, it is very much a continuation there is. So it's more than a couple different teams or anything like that with the step between this and the opus that is songs in the key of life are completely different. This is just very much a seconded ration- of what he was doing under underpins. Anything. Just the last thing to say about this record is that it has multiple moments where I'm like, I'm sitting there and listening to it, and I want to like it more than I do. Yes, I ran into that lie. I'm like the structure, the foundation of a classic Alzheimer. Stevie Wonder. Song is here, but see, it's like the vocal melody or if the groove just isn't quite as as powerful as I'm expecting it to be. But this Adam just like, doesn't quite get there a couple of times. Like when you're listening to creep in, it's like, could have been incredible or like bird of duty. Like I really like Sartre all starts and I'm, I'm like, really excited. And then it just feels like it's going to be a dozen quite. Take me there. Yeah. But then again, we also, I mean, that was one of the nice things discussion. We had this week as well..

"One of your characters. So we ranked a lot of peak era. Stevie Wonder we're doing nineteen seventy to nineteen eighty seven. And of the twelve albums we had. We rent eight of them, which is pretty incredible, which leaves us Dow down to incredible if you wanted to know our thoughts on the other albums, please go back and listen to the part one of because we will not be talking about them here except ten gently. And yeah, Taryn has a lot of thoughts and feelings. He wants to get out right now for for anything else. Let's talk about the forums that we have left, which are two thousand two's talking book and he's threes Inner Visions, nineteen seventy four stillness. I finale and nineteen seventy six is songs in the key of life. Okay. So do you remember in on our Madonna episode when we were talking about all these albums that had like really tall heights and then like really low lows. You're like, yeah, but there's all batch shit. And so we ended up ranking them and we totally forgot about bedtime stories. One of the most boring albums we've ever had on the show and it somehow ended up seven out of fourteen and feel like fulfilling misses. First finale just pulled that because like there's. Elven ship Grammy's. Limited breath will he won an Oscar. He wanted to Oscar a woman. Also wanna Grammy too, and that is number twelve out of twelve at our list. No. But like the thing is we just put down. I won't say what, but hotter than July science delivered my mind. We just ranked them, but like they all have really good sounds on them. Unfulfilling misses first finale we have billion writing woman, possibly my favorite, Stevie Wonder song. Oh, absolutely. It's funky shape. He's having such a great time..

"Yeah, like either really grungy or like script. -i and like aside murky yet this like the curly q thing and it just makes me cringe. So hard just looking at the fun, but also it's hand and a bunch of rubber masks. I want to say either clay. I don't know. It's really creepy and I, he's blind. So like. Another thing too is that I've, Evan disparaged a couple of the album covers this week to ours, like I mean, but he, he can't really have a hand in them anything. He can give them like a basic concept, even say, like, make it blew, right. Yeah, he doesn't know what blue is right like, well. The thing is like this is called characters. He's written song from the perspective of other people before he's written tales of love and loss of well, went light. You know, women going through incredible things. And this is although we're just like, you call it characters. And then just another album, like especially because I mean, they are easily his worst songs, but he does voices on other record like our our must doing Carrick ends. Yes, he loves to encourage doing and then there's none of that on this record called characters. I'm honestly, I'm like, I'm looking at the track list. I can't even remember what he's on some like I saw a board and then like suddenly this one song came on and I was like, this stood out and it's the one that has be king on it and save risvan and comb. Lovey make your love, come down. It's CBO trick CD's now Renault from his later. It's it's the kind of like schmaltzy blues that I hate. If I am going to get into Blue's blues, it's got to be dirty, really just on refined. And this is like hotel lobby blues, so bad. So for me, personally, for talking about a little bit, I would probably throw because score. In square circle at least has overjoyed and journey to the life secret life plans has some songs on. It are not terrible. I would say number eleven characters. Number twelve in circles, square number ten plants. Great. That's fine with great. Yeah, we already have a number twelve. I mean, how does these go? So love it. Great, perfect discussion had gob aids can stop talking about hyphen. I'm so happy that we were all dislike yet. He's terrible move on. Okay, so that's number twelve. Women, red number loving characters, tenants, square number nine journey to the secret plans and never have to say it and it's great. So now we got down the originals nineteen seventy through nineteen eighty. This is a fun little time, and I'm too scared to make a choice myself so NIA if you. Eight. Okay. But the Bubba. Let me think you're okay. So I really like hotter than I know it's from his later years, kind of, but that like from me, I would not put next. I feel like whatever I choose, it's going to be controversial. I don't. What was the one where I was like this woman. Brig coming from. I think. I mean, I think that's what I want next you. I think it is where I'm coming from because I mean, it has a couple of great songs and it has some good songs, but I didn't feel like as an album it was. I mean, we're getting into territory where it's great album. So I wanna talk to you is also on here which is like making of carrying in the nomination for like or Stevie Wonder songs, at least with what we do this week. And I put us said there were some great song Lam early love me as on here. I guess maybe that's the only great. When I don't never. I love never leave summer. Oh yes. Oh my gosh. That was a revelation this week because I had never heard this before the things the shit..

"Comes up fine line between crafted by artist and just processed by machine, and he is his voice is still in full form. But on these last three albums, I don't think he ever really overcomes it. You know? And it's also program? Yes. Like part of what versus composed part of the reason that he made synthesizers honestly helped bring them to the forefront in to like general audiences was because he was still using live germs. He is still using incredible guitarists. And so these since ounded. Organic? Yeah, they were playing every instrument. Exactly. Whereas like in the eighties, it's like it's definitely a drum machine because it was always a drum machine, like probably even the sense. Sometimes sound like he came up with a riff and then programmed it. So it would just loot for the whole song, you know, like it really loses any sense of of personnel, not personality, but like that. Yeah. When it makes you wonder like when you're someone like Stevie Wonder, and I know that there's trends and that's why you say like then the eighties happened, there are trends and everybody fell into it to an accent at, but like, how do you know? Like not say like, I'm a fantastic drummer, but I'm not gonna play the drums. I'm going to get them. It's the only person who could pull it off this prints and part of the reason that he could program Trump so well, because he was a drummer and he knew how to do that, but Stevie was drummer to he pulled Trumbull so many of his own albums. It's just like, dude, I just have it same. Very, the only last thing I'll say about it because personally, I'm perfectly ok with throwing the woman read at the very bottom of our list, they'll say he won the Oscar for best original song for which blows my mind give it what he goes up against including a footloose by Kenny Loggins. Let's hear it for the boy off of a one soundtrack. Exactly. And also. Yeah. Oh, and also Ghostbusters by Parker? Comma? No. Aimed frigging, was it flashing? No, it wasn't Flashdance. No, there was. It was another conic like title track from a movie, but the things I found so interesting and I couldn't believe ROY, Ray Parker, junior who did the Ghostbusters theme song he played guitar. A one of my favorite songs of his which is maybe your baby way the way back that he does guitar Silla sold. He doesn't. It's just like this kinda cool that they met up and then later began the Oscars, but whatever it's a special award, which is the woman in red going number twelve on our ranking wonder Helms. Okay, that's done this. Great Terron. Yes. Number eleven. I mean. Option. So it's between, yes between like three for me, but I think I have to go with secret life of plants. It's it's just there are some songs on there that I like such as see store yet. No, not even really though really? No. What's it called Essa though? I mean, I do. I don't. That was pretty fun outside my window. I actually really dig that. I like the harmonies on it. I think like childlike melody cat. I think that that's a part where like it's early enough in the Korea that the drum machine kind of is like novel. Yeah. Yeah, because he like works with it and it's still like a, it's not quite a ballot, but it's heading in that direction. But that's like honestly, really an I like power flower, but it's there's, there's just not a time it's. I mean, it's it's a soundtrack for documentary, and so there's a lot of just like the Ambien Incheon bro. Rate. So I was like listening to it while doing mom stuff. And then I was like, this is making me feel insane. This again. It is really dramatic. It's like, what's that? There's like the planet. This is like more. There's a classical of the planets and we played them in band. So as makes me think of like a weird electro version of that. Yes. So you e-e-e-e-no. I would be interested to see maybe how it worked with the documentary, but like as on his own, it's pretty terrible. But I thought it was more terrible than like, I thought it was like the worst, but there were a few moments like this isn't the worst did come for me like I can win with perception of this is just lauded as late one of his were shelves ever. Yeah, and the thing is is bloated. It's not great..

"You think. Defers music living for music, loving people. By to be from worst to first thing that we do, and we are so happy to do, especially right now. This is our forty first artists that we've ever ranked discography wise, which is crazy thing when it comes to expensive and fascinating and challenging discography I can't think of any other artists that we've wanted to dig it to more than this week when we were talking about the one, the only the person who to this day is still probably known as Dionne Warwick's. Best friend that's right guide. We're talking about sting wonder those TV order if you nasty. So Stephen, Stevie number, and we're gonna slow that nasty screaming. So little CV wonder is he used to be known child prodigy, born blind and Michigan, and basically one of the things when you growing up blind, he wound up finding music as an escape, very much so so much so that he was initially brought in front of a very Gordy Motown records in like, oh my God. This can do everything because he's learning how to play keyboards. He's learning how to play drums. He's learning to do all these things of the biggest thing is that he's a young pint-size genius. What do you do with them? Usually they just kind of made them do tribute almost to rate Charles, who was very much big inspiration for him. Again, number one hit with a live recording of him doing fingertips which is him with enthusiasm, Wayland on the harmonica, and let's make this known. I would argue there was never anyone better. Whoever played for Monica than Stevie Wonder, three. I think that just goes without saying, but the thing is that like the weird thing in a lot of people know is that modem didn't know what to do with them for years. They put a serve albums. He a frigging servile thought people know that before Stevie Wonder still kid was beginning to learn his craft learning what it meant to be. Juicer as well as a songwriter and eventually negotiating himself into our tick freedom and holy moly stuff that happened after that is a journey. We're going to talk about the album's today and I'm very excited about it. But who's going to be talking about ranking these wonderful albums hero, which are talkers your favorite podcasts.

That was the last recorded before this one. And that was Tommy just had excess of songs. And here we didn't run into that problem so much so that so many of the songs are single app, six epic, epic link things.
