A Young Fire Spouse's Journey With Her Husband's Cancer Diagnosis

"A few episodes back we sat down with Diane Carter and she shared her story of her husband's line of duty, panther diagnosis, and her relentless pursuit of making turnouts safe and just exploring PFAS and all that fun stuff about exposure in the workplace. If you haven't listened to that podcast, we definitely recommend it. And today we actually have another first responder spouse, Brittany San Pedro with us to share her story about her husband's line of duty cancer diagnosis. Brittany, welcome. Thank you for having me. Brittany San Pedro is a speech therapist assistant, wife to a firefighter and a mom. She has been with her husband for 10 years and has an 18 month old and another one on the way. In late October of 2019, Brittany's husband at the age of 30 and 10 years into his career noticed a small lump on his collarbone. After several tests, he was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was the first line of duty cancer diagnosis in the history of Greeley fire department. Since then, many changes to screening and early detection have been made as a department. As a result, several malignant polyps, skin samples and ultrasound readings have potentially saved the lives of other firefighters within the department. Today, Brittany is sharing her story to help anyone who may feel alone or scared, especially after a health diagnosis. She also wants to encourage change and promote the importance of regular screenings and early detection. Okay. So tell us your story a little bit, the whole thing. We want to hear it. My husband came home one day and just kind of mentioned like, Hey, I got out of the shower at work and I just noticed I had a bump on my collarbone. And he's like, you know, I haven't had my yearly physical. I'm going to go in, have it checked out. And you know, none of us, we weren't really worried. And we were just kind of like, okay, he has a bump. We're going to go check it out. And his general practitioner ran blood work and then started him on antibiotics thinking it was just an infection. His body was fighting something and blood work came back fine. It didn't go down with the antibiotics. At that point, they did an X -ray. Everything looked fine. The blood work looks fine. And his general practitioner asked him what he did for a living. And you know, you fill out that survey, you tell him what you do. And he's like, you know what? We're going to, we're going to keep going. We're going to keep looking. If you're fine with that. You're a firefighter. It just makes me sit better if I, if I keep digging a little bit. And he kept going in for appointments. He then got an ultrasound done. After the ultrasound, he scheduled an appointment for a biopsy to have it looked at. And at this point we hadn't even heard the word cancer yet. I at the time was a special education teacher at a school across the street from the hospital where he was having the biopsy done. He texted me and let me know he was going in. He was super nervous. I let my co -teacher know, Hey, my husband doesn't usually have his feelings out like that. And lets me know that he's there. He's like, that's fine. Go. I ran across the street and he went back. Everything was fine. He came back out and then he just had this look on his face that I'll never forget his eyes started welling up with tears. And I guess the doctor who performed the doctor tech who performed the biopsy, you know, before his doctor had a chance to say anything told him, yeah, this is pretty typical for lymphoma. And both of us were just kind of like, what is happening? What's going on? We were hit by a bus. We didn't even know that this is something that they were looking for. And we called our closest friends, our little mini fire family. And we were like, Hey, we need support tonight. And in a minute, everybody was together at one of our friends house and everybody was just talking trash about the guy who stepped out of his scope of practice and said some things he maybe shouldn't have. And we were like, it's not going to happen. He's too young. He's healthy. There's no way. So a couple of days went by, we got a phone call saying that the doctor wanted us to come in, even though it was his day off and usually not a great sign. So we were a little nervous going in. And then when we sat down, he let us know that they, they did find it to be Hodgkin's lymphoma and that they needed to start figuring out what stage he was at coming up with a plan, trying to figure out everything. And we were both strong until they asked us, you know, are you guys, you guys are young. You guys just got married, just bought a house. Like you, are you guys wanting to start a family at some point? And I just started bawling because I already knew what was coming. And he said, I recommend that you reach out to a fertility specialist, if that's something that you would want to do. And you start reaching out to all your resources. And we did, after that, he started chemo in like less than a week. It was probably like four or five days. And he had chemo, he had it on Christmas. He had it, like he started in November, had it for about six months and then took a little bit of a break and then started radiation. And then after he went through radiation, his end date was March 14th, 2020. And then right after that, the next day the world shut down, but it was just, you know, for us, it was just amazing because he never, we never went to an appointment alone. It was just such a somber time. We were just had this dark cloud of stress and not knowing and anything. And at the same time when it was so dark, such a beautiful thing, because we had the department bringing rigs and down we packed that cancer center and, you know, we had some of his best friends, like his best man and another Lieutenant was there at every single one of his chemo appointments. And, you know, everybody kind of band together for him. It was kind of, it was a beautiful thing to see everybody supporting each other and making sure that he was never alone. You know, the Terry Farrell Fund reached out right away. You know, they did a cut it for cancer for him. It was just something that they hadn't ever experienced before at the, this department. And we were, we were just kind of overwhelmed with all the support that we had,

"It's just astonishing to me. So I'm glad that you're you're you're explicating the situation. Yeah. And I think what I really want to underline for your listeners is that we have not seen these kind of hate speech laws, per se, but we have seen the bureaucratic state once again trying to put in an apparatus to control your speech as well. So they are taking the first steps to following Ireland. So we have seen the Biden administration attempt its, quote unquote, disinformation board and that disinformation board. Government actors were going to be there to regulate your online speech. And of course, that is now the public town square. And now we have found out with the Twitter files and other investigative reporting like that, that while they may not have been arresting you for your tweets, they were sure in the ear of all of these tech executives to make sure that your views were suppressed. So I mean, just this week, we have seen The Wall Street Journal do a tremendous job on an investigative report on how Instagram has let child sexual exploitation run rampant on its platform. But at the same time, they are they're not suppressing that. They're suppressing what you want to post on Instagram about covid, things like that. We're going to a break here, folks, talking to Megan Basham with The Daily Wire. Don't go away.

"Well i read an article this weekend in the wall street journal and it was great and the reason i read it because i usually read the op -ed column and i'll go through the what's new section but that's really it then i go over to other sites but this one really piqued my interest it says good news on children and cancer i was like wow i gotta read this because i'm my afraid kids may god forbid hope they don't have this gene and the article is amazing it talks about how the death rate for leukemia which is the most common childhood cancer is down 47 percent in 20 years like my gosh that's amazing brain even brain cancer down 11 percent i'm i'm reading this article i want you to understand through not through a political lens at all i'm reading it it'll make sense in a second where i'm going with this but i'm reading this as a concerned person who had this disease and for a concerned parent too and i'm halfway down the article and i'm thinking to you know this is amazing and it hits me again how bad liberals really suck in what a cancer article by kids yes folks you're sane in the audience can we all agree what i just told you is a universally good thing kids death rates from cancer are down dramatically because of scientific advancements roy you're in the audience like who would object to that liberals no yes no yes come on yes no wait yes yes they're upset why because the same liberals that want to censor you bankrupt you put you in jail charge you with terrorism to walk into an open door in the capital fired from your job why you declared a nazi because you made a comment one day about twitter about liking donald trump they're upset because quote progressives are flogging the cancer reports finding that racial disparities in cancer deaths have increased mortality rates roughly were similar for whites hispanics and blacks in 2011 but progress stalled for blacks and whites they note that by 2021 the death rate for white children was 16 for blacks and hispanics you're like really that's that's bad we don't want that we certainly don't want kids to die because they're black or hispanic that would only be like an animal so not even an animal but a demon might have to wish for that oh and then we find out the reason so liberals are mad that more kids are living by uh surviving cancer why are they mad because there's still disparities what's causing them one possible explanation the story notes may be that medicaid patients lack access to premier oncologists and have to wait for appointments with specialists to get diagnosed there it is folks

When I fill in for Dan, we've got a story for you from our border. southern Remember that? We used to have one of those. The Texas Tribune has a got a piece this week. Mexico rejects Texas's proposal to allow state police case to deport undocumented immigrants. Boy, even the headline needs to be untangled. Undocumented immigrants. That's a lie. Let's talk about language in the last hour, the way the left manipulates it. Undocumented immigrants. Really? Because what I'm seeing a lot of is stolen social security numbers and fake paperwork and even people come into the United States illegally, then walk up to Border Patrol agents and then they're given some sort of documents that demonstrate that we're aware they're here. So they're not undocumented. They're actually documented. So that's already a lie. It's generous to say that they're immigrants because that in a sense justifies coming into the United States. What's really going on is they're illegal aliens by every traditional definition of the word and also that's what appears in our statutes. The laws themselves say illegal aliens. But Mexico is rejecting a Texas proposal to allow state police to deport illegals. What do you mean rejecting it? So Mexico us allows to, if the federal government wants to do it, on the very rare occasion that it does nowadays. That's fine, but if Texas wants to do it, Mexico is rejecting it? What's the difference to them? Well, the difference is obvious. Our federal government is not doing it. And any attempt by any American entity to actually put illegals in trebuchets and throw them back across the street, they're going to reject. They're against. No, no, no, no. Don't send them to us. We don't want them. We opened up our country. It's so they would come to you. Mexico does not police its own southern border. It used to. Trump When was in office, Trump forced them to. He actually threatened a trade war unless they got control of the thing. Okay, fine, fine, fine. They got control of their southern border, and they slowed down all of the

Yarden, what do you want to say to the American people, millions of whom are listening to you right now? First thank of all, you for hosting me. I kind of want to ask, is it me just described? I still can't believe the reality that is going on. I still can't believe I'm having to tell such a hard story, but I still can't believe it's not only my story, but a story of hundreds and thousands. So thank you for listening to it. No, it's the least we can do here. I just want you to know, everybody and I who want may come in contact to know there are literally tens of millions of Americans. We still live who stand with Israel, who stand with you, who stand with your family and the other families. And some of this stuff you see from college campuses and in the streets, this is a very small minority of Americans, that we are thoroughly disgusted by what has taken place. It is very, very important that that be conveyed to you and to others who who might, are in your situation and so forth. Are you getting any family members? Actually, no. Let me say we're here on this journey with some other families and of course we feel the support that you've mentioned and it's always nice and good to be here because we do watch TV and we watch other side protesting and it's just like hurting us the even more reality than of what is going on. We are actually here on a journey to pray to go to Lubavit Rabai and be together and hold hands and wait for a miracle because that's what it takes. So, a bad, organized, really magnificent journey for us. They are wrapping us with a lot of love and we also see that this is how the journey becomes real about our situation. You can't even begin to explain how worried I am for them and for their mother. My sister -in -law is so polite gentle person. and They watch their grandmother, their beloved grandmother killed in front of their eyes and it's 40 days now that we don't even know in what condition they are.

A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 11/14/23

"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. 738 on this Tuesday, the 14th day of November. Lots of Texas political news. But I did get a chance to spend a moment there in the opening half hour saying that I grow weary of the moral fog. In fact, on Twitter just a couple of moments ago, in these fractured times, I'm glad to give a Democrat some credit. Democrat Senator Chris Coons, who is right on Israel, was confronted by this stooge pro -Hamas activist on a train who badgered him. Why not a ceasefire? Why not a ceasefire? Sometimes moral clarity is something that needs to be delivered in a certain fashion. I'd like to think I have it intellectually and conceptually. My buddy Mike Gallagher joins us, who had an experience yesterday that will bring that kind of clarity in the harshest but necessary terms. I just can't wait to see how this day went. It had to be amazing and I'm just so glad you're here and the floor is yours. And tell everybody what you got a chance to do yesterday. Well, it was something that no one would want to see. It was pretty brutal. It was worse than I thought it was going to be. Israel put together a 45 -minute sort of a collection of video and audio and still photographs. They were videos from the terrorists' GoPros and their cell phones. There were closed -circuit videos and there were audio intercepts. They got audio recordings of the terrorists calling their families. The IDF was able to tap into some of these calls where they were calling their parents excitedly, saying, I just killed 10 Jews with my bare hands, Mom. Your son is a hero. Your son is a hero, Aloha Akbar. And they're all joyful and ecstatic. A couple of takeaways. When you watch the brutality of the violence that they inflicted on these innocent men, women, children, elderly people, there are a couple of things that really stand out. Number one, the ecstasy and the joy that the Hamas terrorists experienced as they were killing people, including little babies in little onesies and little daisy outfits and cute little kids covered in blood, slaughtered brutally. And they were absolutely euphoric, Mark. That's the only word to use. It was ecstatic for them. They had such a joy. And I kept telling myself, there's no way they think that Jews are human. There's no way that they regard them as human beings. You couldn't do that to another human being and have that kind of satisfaction. I mean, let's face it. When you think about crime in America or crimes of passion or murders or robberies or whatever, what have you, normal people don't have euphoria when they cut somebody's head off. They don't get joyful and they don't call their moms and brag about it and say, look what I did. Look what I did. So number one, that's one of the big takeaways. And the other thing I kept thinking about, and it was a somber mood. It was at the Israeli embassy. There were a number of some media people there, some pastors. It was a gathering from the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews who we worked with closely right after the terror attack of October the 7th. About 60 people in the room, maybe 70. It was very somber. It was very well done. But as you can imagine, there were tears. There was crying. There was weeping. One pastor in front of me, in fact, he happens to be a pastor from Sarasota, not far from where I'm at right now. When it was over, he kind of flung himself down onto the ground and laid across the stage and was laying on his belly just heaving, just crying and sobbing. I mean, you're looking right at the face of the devil. You're looking at evil with this. And I kept thinking, Mark, how I wish the people marching at Columbia and Harvard and in Austin, how I wish they could see this video. From the river to the sea, you proud now? You proud now? I mean, you know, the one pastor, I spent some time, I pulled double duty after the show and then I did the screening at this embassy. And then I was asked to do an afternoon show for WAVA, which is a huge Christian teaching and talk station. Over in Arlington, yeah. Yep, the Arlington. And so Don Crow has been out on a medical leave and they asked me to fill in for him. And I had with me Bishop Lanier, who is the chairman of the board of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, as a very profound speaker, very eloquent, very, you know, just a great orator and a great man of the cloth. And he said, look, I don't think we're going to change their minds. We need to change our minds. We need to change what we say from the pulpit. We've got to stop the equivocation. Well, it's two sides here. People are dying on both sides. That is both -sides -ism of the worst possible stripe. It really is, Mark. And I just want to reiterate that because I don't know that Israel, listen, if Israel was guilty of any of the stuff that I saw yesterday, that I experienced, and again, I'm not trying to be melodramatic. It's one of the most painful things I've ever, ever encountered. I mean, and I'll spare you gory details. You can imagine how bad it was. I mean, you already have seen some of it, you know, lining up on the streets and just shooting into cars of innocent passengers trying to drive down the street. But there was one scene in particular that got to me the most. I do want to share it with you. There was a father alone with his sons. The mother was gone, and it was in the kibbutz. They did a horrible massacre in this kibbutz, which is like a Jewish religious holy neighborhood, you know. But they're beautiful little homes. I mean, oh, their homes were so cute and decorated and, you know, plants on the porches and everything. And they were meticulously taken care of. So here's this father in the house, and it's all captured on the family's closed -circuit video. So they had like a ring system all throughout the house and outside, and it was all captured. So the father is with these two boys. I would guess the one little boy was about seven or eight. The other one was probably 11 or 12. And the little boys were in their underwear. And the shots ring out, and the father, they're all terrified, and the father desperately tries to protect his children. He scoops them both up, and they run into the backyard, and they go into a little shed that's in the backyard. It looked like a little gardening shed. And you see a Hamas terrorist come around the corner and casually pull the pit off of a grenade and throw the grenade in the shed. And it blows up, and the father immediately slumps out of the shed dead. You could tell he's instantly dead. But the two little boys are alive, and they come running out in their underwear. The one boy, you can see it looks like his eye is missing. He is terrified. The two little boys are crying, Daddy, Daddy, Mommy, Mommy. They go into the kitchen. Now the closed -circuit video picks them up in the kitchen where they're talking to each other. And they said to each other, and it's all translated, of course, and they said, Is this real? Is this real? I think we're going to die. Daddy died. Daddy died. Where's Mommy? Where's Mommy? And then the one little boy turns to his brother, his little brother, and says, Can you see out of that eye? He says, No, I can't. And he looks at him, and you can see that it looks like his whole side of his face was injured from the grenade. And he says, You can't? You can't? You can't see? He goes, No, I can't see anything out of my eye. And the little boys are crying, and they're calling for their Mommy. And then the closed -circuit shifts back to the backyard where a kibbutz security guard, actually two security guards, have escorted the mother to the property. She had been away. So they take her to the back of the shed where her dead husband is laying. She is now in anguish and screaming and collapsing and screaming, Where are my boys? Where are my boys? At the same time, the two boys, they run out of the house in the front, trying to escape. And Lord knows what fate they met. I don't have a whole lot of high hope that they made it. And I'd like to look into that. I'm going to follow up with my friends at the fellowship to see if those boys were reunited with their mother. But that's the human suffering that I wish people who seem to dehumanize Jews would see. It was eye -opening. I'm glad I did it. I'm honored that I did it. I'm glad you did, too. I'm so glad. But it was awful. And I wouldn't want anybody to see it. For people who – and sometimes you can hear people in your headphones and hear people driving around. And I want to give a voice to people saying we could show a horrible video of a Palestinian child to whom something terrible has happened, and that is undeniably true.

"Charles wants Hoskinson to create a settlement future and system for Kraken. Will Jesse Powell take the bait? This is Around the Blockchain. Hey, thank you for joining, everybody. Make sure you go ahead and hit that like button because we got three phenomenal guests on today. We got Thinkin Crypto holding it down. Thinkin, Tony, how are you doing today? I'm doing great. It's great to be on. Oh, it's always a great day. Also, it's a great day for Moon and Papa. Moon and Papa, we just had the full Moon. Do you get extra powers during the full Moon? No comment. No comment. Hey, you know, was that you in that Thriller video? Also on today, live from the White House, he's taking Commander's spot. It is Patrick. Patrick, how are you doing today? I'm doing great. I'm happy to be here. I am, in fact, part of the ops now live from the White House, like you said, so we'll see if I can't spill the beans on some stuff. And when I said taking the Commander's spot, I meant the dog commander, not, of course, the CIF. But everybody, let's talk about Solana first. Grayscale's Solana, we have a huge premium, everybody. Some are saying this is front running the pump here, but it exploded to $202 for Grayscale Solana Trust. This is what you can buy on exchanges. If you are a Wall Street investor, you're probably not going to use Kraken or Coinbase. You're going to want to use a entity like Grayscale. Well, each of these shares has a little bit of Cardano within it, about 0 .3 or so. Well, this price is way, way higher, everybody. It looks like we're trading at a very high premium at 869 % premium. So when you do the share, and what that is trading relative to Solana's price, almost a 900 % premium people are paying here. At the time of trading, we're also seeing low prices and high premiums for Grayscale's Chainlink Trust. The Chainlink Trust, a 250 % premium. BioCoin, 900 % premium, close to Solana's premium there. But meanwhile, Solana, still down 80 % from the all -time highs. Now, thinking crypto, I want to ask you, you know, these Wall Street traders, I thought they were smarter than us. I thought they knew how to out -trade us. Then why are they paying a 900 % premium if they're so smart? Man, maybe they know something we don't, and that is maybe that Altcoins will continue to move up with Bitcoin. I think Bitcoin still has a leg up, and we know the liquidity flows from Bitcoin after it hits its overbought scenario, and then the alts pop off. Obviously, Solana and Chainlink have been pumping, so I think they know something. They know, you know, these VCs have been pumping Solana, and I think they see a higher upside, but that premium is, you know, ridiculous.

Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his seed because The Blob was supposed to eat him. But he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Metaxas! Hey there, folks. In case you were not aware, Albin Sadar has written a book and the title is Obvious. No, really, it's obvious. Albin, could you back me up on this? The title is Obvious. Yeah, I'm holding a copy of the book right here, and it says Obvious, so it must be Obvious. Obviously, the title is literally Obvious. Yeah. If you read the book, if you see the cover of the book, the title is Obvious. Who's on first? Literally, who? His name is who? Okay, so in the book, every chapter is super short, and you say these things that are Obvious, but that need to be restated. By the way, you've got blurbs from everybody. You have a forward by the great author, Eric Metaxas. I don't know how you got him. I don't even know. Is he still living? I always confuse him with James Michener. I'm sorry. But anyway, on the back of the book, you have a quote from George Orwell, and it says, We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men. If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act. So this book is filled with truth. Every chapter is the statement of some obvious truth, which needs restating. So what which one should we focus on? How about the one the title? What is it? Who made you boss? Yeah. Who died? Who died and made you boss. And by the way, that George Orwell quote, he says, It's obvious is the first duty of intelligent men. I couldn't find any in my sphere of influence, so I just wrote it myself. So there you go. I hear you. I hear you. But the chapter. Yeah, I did want to focus on is is the one called Who Died and Made You Boss. I got to explain that actually the title is supposed to be in quotes, but it's not. The editor left it out, but it's in quote. It would be in quotes is because when we were children in the playground, if you're playing a game, a tag or something, then suddenly somebody changed the rules so that they could win the game. Somebody in our group would always say, Who died and made you boss? And of course, people. Yeah. Yeah. Who did? But we're living in a world nowadays that people say you can't call that woman a woman. She's could be a this or that or they and and and we have to stand there and say, wait a minute, who died and made you boss? Who are you? Who comes up with these things? Why do we have to listen to you? I'm going to listen to, you know, the almighty, because I believe in him. And he said male, female. He didn't say they, them, theirs, whoever. So who died and made you boss? I explain all that and talk about some fun stuff with some fun cartoons. Some of this stuff. What I find funny about it is it is like it's stunningly obvious. And yet we don't see it. I mean, the idea that we would go along when somebody says you can't say this, you can't say that's good. And we go, OK, or oh, oh, yeah, yeah. Simply saying, excuse me, no, no, you don't get to decide five minutes ago that there are 37 genders. I don't know who you think you are, but you don't get to decide that this simple little pushback of that, of stating the obvious that you don't you don't have authority over me. I answer to God and sorry, but I don't I don't need to listen to you. That's a simple truth, but we need to restate it. And obviously you restate it in the book titled Obvious. What do you want to say more about that? Well, I want to mention other things that that are obvious. What I begin with the chapters called Basically God Exists. And I talk about how to me it's obvious that God exists. I get one of my favorite little examples is in there and I end with the stolen election because to me that was so obvious. I'm sitting there saying, doesn't anybody else see this? What I love is that I got a I got a meme in here or a graphic in here from the Babylon Bee. They gave me permission to use it. And the title is it's one of their articles says White House announces all conspiracy theories are true, except for the one about the Biden stealing the 2020 election. And I thought, say, great. They nailed it because I had a couple I had a cartoon that said basically the same thing. But then when I saw it in the Babylon Bee, I said, I think they're going to say it better than I do. Now, I have a bunch of little cartoon characters in there and a lot of the artwork is my own. I must admit. And if you think the cartoon is of me, it's actually not. It's of Simon de Hundert, who is my alter ego that I write with at American Thinker sometimes because I've written an American thing. This stream looks a lot like you, Alvin. I'm just I'm just here to I'm just being honest. I'm just stating the obvious that Simon de Hundert, because there are these cute little cartoons that you have done in here. And it looks like it could be you. I'm just saying it could be. I'm not saying it is. Look, I'm not going to go out on a limb. I'm not going to swear in a Bible or take a polygraph. I'm just saying that's my opinion. It could be you. Yeah. Or not. Too much. Yes. Too much hair. I don't want to offend anybody. And only four fingers. There's a lot of funny stuff in the book. For example, there's a little cartoon here. I want to make sure I read this one because this is I like this one particularly. But it's a little cute, cute. It's it's it's your little drawing of the guy who could be you. But the quote says if Hitler were alive today with the left, call him Trump 2 .0. That's very clever and loaded, loaded with gems like that. It's also loaded with a lot of serious stuff. Oh, oh, my goodness. Yeah. One of my favorite things and one of my favorite chapters is and this is like a little parable. I tell is, is I draw a picture of a guy stealing a television set and the little parables about the stolen TV. A guy comes home. He goes into his living room. Somebody stolen his TV. So he runs next door to his neighbor and he says, hey, did you see anything? Somebody stole my TV. But while he's running over to his neighbor's house, he looks through his neighbor's window and he sees his TV on his neighbor's wall. So he grabs the beat cop. There's a policeman coming down the street. He says to the policeman, look, we have to go in this. My neighbor stole my TV. And the policeman knocks on the door. Did you steal his TV? And the guy says, no, I didn't steal his TV. And I said, policeman, let's go in and look. I'll show it to you. It's right there on the wall. The guy says, no, I'm not going to let you in here because I'm telling you right now, I did not steal that guy's TV. And the policeman looks at the other guy who accused the neighbor and he says to him like, well, that's good enough for me. If he says he didn't do it, then he didn't do it. So when the left tells you they didn't steal the 2020 election, that should be good enough for all of us. They didn't spend four years looking into Trump. You and I know, I mean, this is a horrible thing when you know something is true and people say, oh, no, no, no, no, it's not true. Or even worse when they say, well, you can't even talk about that. When you tell me I can't talk about something, that's when I get mad because patriots have died. Patriots have died so that we could be free and we could speak our minds in this country. You don't even have to be right. So it's one thing to say, oh, you're wrong. It's nothing to say, oh, you can't talk about that. We need to be just to speak the truth, to state the obvious, which you do in every chapter of this book is to be doing spiritual warfare. This is how we fight back by stating the obvious. And the fact that the election was stolen, not only is that true, but it should make everyone in America furious because what could be more despicable than people stealing an election from the American people, not from Donald Trump, from the American people? And so you have the guts in this book to talk about that. It does the crazy thing out. And again, this is the whole point of the book is like, you don't need to be some kind of a genius to figure out that it was stolen like it is obvious. That's why the title of the book is obvious, because everything you talk about is obvious. You're not making some arcane argument that maybe no, you know, for quacks like a duck. I'm sorry, but it's probably a duck. Yeah, yeah, exactly. That example after the book had come out, I said, oh, I wish I would have used the example of the duck, you know, walks like a duck, waddles like a duck, has feathers like the duck, goes to the bathroom like the duck, hangs out with other ducks. It's most likely a duck. Okay. And when the election was stolen, it was the New York Times that had to declare Biden the winner after like three days of a how come all this stuff coming in. Okay. I came up with probably that day. I came up with a dozen things that said this proves it. It was stolen. Yeah. Ladies and gentlemen, the book is obvious.

A highlight from AI Today Podcast: CPMAI in the Real World, Interview with Dr. Philipp Schlenkhoff, CPMAI

"The AI Today podcast, produced by Cognolytica, cuts through the hype and noise to identify what is really happening now in the world of artificial intelligence. Learn about emerging AI trends, technologies, and use cases from Cognolytica analysts and guest experts. Hello and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host, Kathleen Mulch. And as you can tell from my voice, I'm a little under the weather today. So I will be on today's podcast, but Ron might be doing a little bit more of the talking than me. Yeah, well, sorry to disappoint you. You're here for Kathleen to hear her more than 50%, but you know, she will still be here. You're going to hear her questions, but you know, I'm going to do my best to channel Kathleen's voice when she's not speaking. So I'm your host, Ron Schmelzer. And if you're listening to AI Today podcast for the first time, you should know that this is the place to go to hear all the great interviews and thoughts about what is happening with AI Today. And for those of you that follow AI, you know that every day is like a millennium. You know, here in AI, things just change so fast. And we have been in the midst of a lot of series of different podcast series on talking about different things about AI. Of course, generative AI is like the hot thing of the moment because it's everywhere and in every product. I think it's in a toothbrush I have now, generative AI. You can talk to your toothbrush. It's going to be everywhere. It is everywhere. So we have a generative AI series, but we also talk about AI failures. We have an AI failure series. We have a use case series. We have a trustworthy AI series. We have our glossary series, which actually is now starting to come to an end. I think we've gone through almost all the terms we can get to. But of course, we also have interviews with thought leaders and especially those who have gone the next level and certified in the CPMI methodology, which is a best practice for running AI projects. And on that note, we are really excited to have with us today Dr. Philip Schlenkopf, who is co -founder of the AI Transformation Institute and is CPMI certified. Welcome, Philip. Philip, thank you so much for joining us on AI Today. Thanks for having me, Ron. Great pleasure and quite an honor for me. We're really excited for today's interview. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role. All right. First of all, sorry for my accent. I'm calling in from Berlin in Germany. And my way, how I found to AI is sort of a bit surprising because in the end, I started with business administration and studied that, went into corporate restructuring, went into consulting or that one, and then shifted further into the part of sales and learned that from the very beginning. And then after, you know, in a role managing director of a medium -sized company for which was owned for private equity, after a couple of years, I felt it was time for something new. So then I got to know via a business angel, Hans Utzgerreit, who is a professor at the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence, DFKY. The name might be familiar because his son actually was co -publishing the Google paper, Attention is All You Need, Jacob Utzgerreit. And I got to know him and he had a spin -off out of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, which was called Giants Technologies in the field of natural language understanding, relation extraction. And we were doing at that stage, some kind of corporate intelligence service. So I got to know him. I liked the idea. And so I invested into the company, led the company, and we did a lot of things to scale it, you know, having an architectural frame, which would actually do the job, setting up a sales team and doing sales and getting the first customers on board. And that went quite well. So we could sell the company after something like more or less a year to a strategic investor, which was very, very fortunate and very productive. And then I had to stay on board for the post -merger integration for quite a while, another year. And after that was kind of the question, what do we do now? What's generative AI? We saw early, we saw from the very beginning in our job to understand information that we could use transformers to help to get our precision up and our recall up. So that was actually great. And then, you know, then was the phase it was after November last year. And then was the question, what do we do? Do we build a product? And at that stage, our problem was that, you know, we couldn't find a lake, a market, which was not too big, that the big players would go into that market and crush you. And which wouldn't be too small, which could actually sort of, you know, still have where you can have a reasonably scalable business. And in the end, in the application layer, we didn't find the business case who would do the job because we thought, and we saw that, you know, this application layer was very thin. If it's so easy to set up a product based on API, then the problem is everyone can do it. And then the product actually sort of gets less important than the market access. And then we thought, you know, if the product gets less, export and less important than the market access, the market access in the end is the more important thing. And that for that market access, you don't find a startup because market access as a startup is very expensive. So in the end, our analysis led to the fact that in the end, generative AI and the boom which comes along it and all the transformation and change will be something for the existing companies who can just incorporate the solutions into their current offering. So having said that, our solution to that was, yeah, well, that will lead to a massive need for re -upskilling in the field of, well, actually for all professions, more or less. And that's why we founded the AI Transformation Institute where we do, you know, partly something like you do at Cognalytica, training people to better understand the technology and how to use it. And on the other hand, we do quite a few consulting jobs with customers on sort of helping them in their project to challenge them to go into the project management and eventually even take over some coding paths to help them to actually get their product onto the street. Yeah, in the past, I mean, that's fantastic, by the way, and hard for us to disagree with any of what you said, because you're right, AI is so transformational. And as you said, AI will be a core part of every product, right? Even things you would never have expected in the same way that the Internet and mobile have been so core transitional that just selling something general about we will make the Internet work, we'll make mobile work doesn't do anything for you because it's so core to everything. And I like how you think about market access. That's very, very interesting. But yeah, what you were saying about, you know, really trying to implement these for particular industries and particular applications, I think that's sort of the rub. We always are so surprised sometimes when we talk to people in major companies as we spend time, some of our interviews even here, folks who are unfortunate 1000, some of the biggest companies, and you think to yourself, they surely must be implementing, you know, AI at some advanced level. I mean, these are fortunate 1000 companies represent like what percentage of the global economy, like what 90? I don't even know what the percentage is the vast majority of the global economy. So you'd think that they would be well, well, well ahead. And then when you talk to them, you find it's actually the opposite. They're much farther behind in their AI. They tend they're not the leaders as much as the fast followers and the ones that can figure out how to apply AI to their problems. Those are the ones that get ahead, not just some AI experiment. So I don't want to ramble on and on about that, but it's hard to disagree with everything that you've said to that point and actually really sort of like, you know, my question kind of follows up on that. And that is sort of like the the challenges because people see the promises. They kind of get wrapped up in the hype. Maybe they even do some small AI projects. A lot of them are proof of concept that don't really find their way to any sort of long term use. So something kind of gets in the way. Right. So what do you see as some of these challenges in making AI projects work data, advanced analytics, any of that in that realm? Yeah, thanks for the question, Ron, because well, thank for what you said earlier, because that's something I've always thought that was only the case in German large corporates. Yeah, some of them are quite far ahead, but some of them, there's really not happening anything. And if you say it's the same in the U .S., then I'm a little bit relaxed from the European perspective. Yeah, but that's what we see in companies quite a lot. Yeah. That actually the C level is because of their age. Yeah. They're not that innovative. Yeah. They haven't fully understood the impact of the technology. And then sort of they talk to their CTO and the CTOs are maybe not that open towards the technology either. And they say, you have so many projects already in my pipeline. Yeah, I cannot prioritize that right now. And then you talk to the legal departments and those guys as well say, well, yeah, but there are a lot of and, you know, in Germany, you GDPR, you know, data regulation, we are sort of very cautious about all of that. And then the legal your legal team tells you, well, that's kind of, you know, everything is quite unsure and, you know, there's not real legislation, you know, and then sort of things get postponed and there's no active pressure to change that. I'm not talking about all the companies, but there are a few which go in that direction. And then the problem is sort of the grassroots thing works against it. Yeah. People use it anyway. And then exactly what then is happening, exactly what, you know, legal and the tech department wanted to avoid, you know, all the private and the customer data flowing into sort of some model by sort of the open, by the free version of the tools. And that's kind of a challenge. Yeah. So first of all, valid point, it's a top -down approach. Yeah. There needs to be an AI strategy in the companies and that needs to be sort of carefully thought through, always depending whether it's the core value creation process where which is being transformed or whether it's just a support function like sales or marketing, then you'd rather go for a tool option. But if your core value creation processes are going to be transformed, you need to think about something between using tools or maybe sort of build your own AI and that needs to be understood and then implemented. And as you said, you know, it cannot be some kind of a pilot which never goes into operation because then you don't have a success. And if you don't have a success, you will never really put money on it. So it needs to be, and that's something I really love about CPMI, you know, think big, start small, iterate often. It's so true in the projects, yeah, that you cannot tell that often enough. And I know you guys pronounce it a lot, but it's really true. It cannot be said, you know, enough.

"Space that i found was under armor gap. And and tapestry. Pva did report results but overall the tone wasn't terrible Lululemon was also big earnings. This week So all these kind of struggled despite the positive signs that we saw from the lululemon earnings so it could just be a momentum. Name the names are a little bit exhausted and overall growth momentum stocks tend to to to lag overall this week just from a factor perspective. Right we will give economists some credit. Yes the estimates were all over the place but the final number was a lot closer than last month. If you'll recall the estimates for one million new jobs or so that ended up coming in at around two hundred sixty six thousand and some of the more optimistic estimates last month had about two million jobs. They were expecting but right okay. So let's move onto the next segment of the show where we discuss our favorite stories news New stories seeking alpha articles contributed articles Tweets and other things that we saw that caught our interest this week. Why don't we start with our man in miami stephen story. And it's one of the best inflation story. We had some newish somber and on that it wasn't a cpi numbers pc number table ocean. I'm struck by the difference between now and say coming out of the financial crisis you bending at the same arguments thaddeus christie money trillions unleashes great insulation in. It never happened. After the enterprises it's inflationary distance some time. It's different now. Two completely different prices news every off site airport parking and way down to manny at least doubled the prices literal since last three smooth six weeks ago. That's remarkable and i asked kind of ask the why and they said we take take anybody to work on. Technically ages on the city boosted their their fees. A little bit too so to me. That's that's a continuing story. This is completely different field. Incoming seattle currencies and the fed is going to have to act in fourteen thousand one interesting anecdote mayor so you said that the prices on the parking were what they were six times a year. That right. i'm sorry. Dave sonoma's since six weeks ago but still remarkable Yeah wow okay well. We did see some beige book data earlier. This week right They found selling prices. Increased moderately input costs rose briskly many in the context of book reciting noticed sharp increases in construction and manufacturing raw materials. So that's still there even though there are people are explaining the cpi numbers away. It's just a rate of growth differential right. When we came we came down so far after the pandemic that were just barely catching up to where we were. But steve's anecdote they're kind of indicates the opposite that there is some some on the ground figures that are materially. Moving you have. The question is if this inflation. These higher prices are indeed transitory as the fed would insist it is then will these people on companies lower. Their prices wants the things return to normal in the fed raises rates. That is the question i would assume. Not but what do i know. Yeah and wages Stick so your bank of america. They're lifting their minimum twenty five dollars an hour. That's not never going back. So yes that's the price of oil company go. Maybe the price of parking common goal. Right all right cama. What about you favorite stories. And i go a little deeper name. Mc we've mentioned and just talk about how it's becoming harder for the overall market to ignore. It's like before the first round rehab. Okay it's the red sox the mean stocks and you know it'll go back down fast and then people kind of forget about it. The more the this these things happen And you know nobody's even sure if this is really a an actual short squeeze on amc. Since the short interest hasn't come down that much so again it could be like a ganassi's the options that you know the stickiness of amc's price is having its impact across the market and a writing a headline today. Who said it's like secondhand stunks and it's basically like you're in a bar someone's smoking getting second hand smoke. I mean you're getting impacted by this. Amc rise now wait now and and game stop or the top two stocks You know the top rated stocks in the russell value two thousand. So if you'd made the move to the value these will be the stocks that would be calling the tune field in the past week and You know we have like watching. The story developed. We have our S team which gives us like fell on. Google searches throughout the day. And there's one just when the wednesday when amc doubled and all these terms are basically a c- should i sell my hands. See how do. I pay capital gains tax. What's next penny stock. So i mean obviously the retail fevers the layer and people are out looking for the next thing and if amc and game stop aren't me are. I'm sorry value stocks. What does that say about everything else. I mean how can they be value stocks. Well they they were once. And i think just there's there they happened rebalanced the indexes so on that but they re balance on the twenty fifth this month i think actually value as recently. Yeah that's insane okay. Well hopefully they'll they'll kick them out the next rebalance but who knows brad. What about you. The amc here big story. That jumped out to me was their equity offering documents when they went out and raised Raise capital selling shares. Obviously there was a store with mudrik capital where they bought shares at a premium to the to the close. usually when. You're when you go out Raise capital and there's usually discount associated with it but they raised the they raised that premium. Mantra capital came out immediately sold into the market. And i think tried to do it again and an interesting warning. Signs came up in their Equity offering documents just warning investors about the extreme risk and volatility associated with owning their shares. In that they could retail investors could potentially lose all of their investment by owning shares in the company which is A very. I mean kudos to them for recognizing the risks inherent in owning stocks. But i mean definitely that jumped out at me as some sort of warning. And i think it's probably why you saw the the spike in google searches in. How do i sell my stock. If if the company is telling you beware you may wanna look into how to protect yourself. Yeah may wanna take that warning with. He'd yeah and for me in general just the return of retail investors. This has been going on for a while really ever since the pandemic but this to me shows that they are here. They're not going away. At least for a little while i think once interest rates higher interest rates take hold. They will go the same way that they went in the early. Two thousand but this is something that lab is here to be reckoned with and the way this is happening is apparently by controlling the options market. And that's how these retail investors were able to control movement or movements in big stocks even large cap stocks. So i suspect. We are not hearing about retail stocks of retail investors about museum stocks. And about that whole dynamic and again until higher interest rates take hold and there's a crash of some sort and the fundamentals takeover if ever. I suspect that this will be here to stay in early..

Pass line standby by line does go through the lab and there's the guy in water. Yeah what do you ever want to wait two hours though to see that. So here's what. I'm gonna say 'cause you've never been on this the full the full line your you know. It's not do new favor with the fast pass light so i will agree. The line for the fast pass is sort of utility. The key the regular cues not bad they do make it a little bit interesting and then you get to the pre show in the right itself and it looks pretty cool from the outside. So i am actually. I'm getting a thumbs up. Of course it's a thumbs up. You mean to tell me. They made it interesting. Yeah marginally i'll play and then we have dinosaur which i'm giving a thumbs down. It's sort of an average line. There's some stuff to look at. And then you get to the pre show which i don't i guess you could count as the queue or the line but still i think they don't actually. I'm giving it a neutral. Let's i'll give it a neutral okay expedition everest. That's that's cool line. I give it a thumbs up on both. I give it a thumbs up because it keeps in theme with the ride and it is engaging but it's not. I think it's really immersive. I think they've done a great job on everest. It's immersive it'll put you in the mountain. And i can feel but if you're not someone that would do that if you're not going to be so intriguing. The fast pass line is good. That's what i like about that. That's another thing because normally the fast lines are fast. And they're kind of boring but this was not because i sorta like lineups with tons of detail so that way you can go on them for years and find little things in each one and expedition. Everest is one of those lines that has so many little things going on like desk for stuff all over them and all the little artwork and you.

Tell me about street fighter. I don't wanna hear about mortal kombat. Oh i'm not going to tell you about moral compass. Because i don't wanna talk about that movie any longer.

This movie right and But he he absolutely steals us home and it unquestionably is him alone. Makes us movie watchable. Yes ed's i would argue wouldn't be watchable. I mean there are other performances. I like but if you take his performance out. It's it's just boring and i actually think that Van damme's performance is maybe one of the worst. The worst is wada. wanna is horrible But he doesn't get that many line so it's not that bad. You don't even know who i'm talking. I don't actually. He's like i don't wanna say is the second in command. But he's one of in general gyles Crew and he actually made in street fighter the movie the video game But boy he's bad in this. But i don't want to harp on it too much because i'm part of it was that he's not a native english speaker and so to act on top of speaking language. That is in. Your own is probably a pretty difficult task. So i don't want to where he he's the worst but yeah there. There are a couple moments where you get what i like vandamme for.

Jim hansen if they and if they couldn't get jim henson's wouldn't have puppets because he was that good In their eyes and he they all sense that he could come in and sort of provide a missing alchemy to the show at a time when they really stretching tr- try to find an identity in the summer before it it it debuted in came jim henson and he responded so beautifully not only with the with the muppets that he created for the show. But you know a lot of those Counting films That we remember so Tenderly came from jim. Henson directed drew them and he did it all he did it all absolutely in those little live action films that were so abstract and and so Rable jim henson did them. He had a little animation studio in the back of his workshop and You know he created the melodies with a moog synthesizers. He was he was the first private citizen and the united states to move the science. I worked on a moog synthesizer. It's not easy now. It's not easy and back. Then they were about the size of vw bus huge. So you are you saying sesame street first appeared. They didn't really have any puppets on it. No no pilot shows the test shows that they created in the summer before it launched In fact the street scenes in those pilots bombed with kids they had little focus groups of Of preschoolers and they hated the street. The scenes because of the scenes were populated only by the the the actors and it wasn't until after they reviewed those tests that they realized that they needed to go ahead. And populate the street with fantasy characters as well as You know the reality of actors. Well that's always been sort of like a dark side of sesame street is that they they are street and even when when barney was threatening sesame street in the nineties. A sesame street responded by like expanding the neighborhood to make it look cleaner and more fresher but for a good twenty years there was this a real urban environment populated by muppets. And yeah it was a grit to it and By design they wanted sesame street to look like A neighborhood in harlem Complete with the brownstone stoop and right in in the nineties. Sesame street became been gentrified and They lit it differently. They painted differently and it did take on brighter hues But for for a very very long time it did look like an urban street. That might have been chicago or detroit anywhere else. Well michael is really a because of sesame street that so many people in my generation dye their hair blue are more or read and certainly oh true.

"The monsters? Well, I I think the, the characters are amalgams of many people, I don't know of one in particular who, who is representative of a single individual, although Don music if you remembered on music, I begged my head on the piano myself. Yes, yes. I think that was an Ode to talk to Joe raposo in a funny kind of way and, you know, they won't show Down music anymore, because, of course, there was a an epidemic of children banging them. It's on the I did it myself and I'm fine. It's not so much of the kids. Heads are getting hurt. It's the piano. So for how funny is that so you know, political correctness certainly has creeped in the Sesame Street and they to my great regret. They don't do very much slapstick anymore and I love slaps. I mean Jim Henson's like Muppets used to 8 each other. Oh yes. And you never see anybody away with cannons. Yes and sure. And do you remember the the chef, the the bakery Chef know who the Swedish Chef years with five children? I love that. Yeah. So they don't show that anymore because so many children to themselves down the stairs, holding five chocolate cream, pie with Gary from Tucson, Arizona, who's the most influential Muppet from the show? I I guess I'd have to say big bird is probably the most influential and you know, I think when I say that is that big bird is in life and he frames his questions very well and I think that big bird has encouraged millions of children to do the same to follow. In fact, is the is big footsteps to to, to, to wonder about things and ask about things in an appropriate way. And, you know, Big Bird deals with adults, pretty darn well and he took it off. Mr. Hooper though. Oh yeah, by never getting his name straight. I think it's more than that. It was like like the adversarial quality that they had with each other. Yeah, I loved mr. Hooper's crankiness wage and, you know, I'm Jewish and so I saw a lot of cranky, old Jewish man in in Mister Hooper reminded me of telling my relatives actually that's funny. So Mark in Chicago on Thursday, Well, the Sesame Street muppets and the muppet show Muppets Ever Meet Again. Nope, never her cuz this deal is, so, we'll never be on Sesame Street again. I don't think so. Well, they show him in reruns. I mean he would take an extraordinary circumstance for the people that Walt Walt Disney Company, to allow Kermit back on the Sesame Street set off the show Kermit. Like, in in the an old clips though. I mean, I watch the show recently and yeah. And if you buy the, the box set Sesame Street Old School, tournament is very much in evidence in, in fact, in his wonderful guys and it's crazy frog on Sesame Street news. You know? Like I love that. You can imitate do flowers and impersonations of all the characters. Yeah. Well spent five years with a bunch of puppets and see what happens to you. You know. I do the same thing Eric in Chicago. How are the Muppets maintained and stored? What happens to the old one that when they can't be fixed? Or they going to a muppet Shredder? Hm. They aren't treated like Precious you know iconic characters they you know, the people there have a healthy sense of what they are off their bath mats with appliques and and Oregon even Jim. God bless his soul, he used to carry Kern around in a plastic bag. Oscar wage it goes places in Carroll spinney gym bag and, you know, they they aren't, they're, they're treated with care and they have Muppet Wranglers. They're called people who, you know, repair them and they go to the little Muppet hospital and all. But, you know, unlike some other puppeteers, notably Chicago's bird tillstrom who thought Kukla and and, and not only were real and real children used to put them to sleep on the bed and say the children are sleeping, which is kind of crazy. Jim never thought that they they were going to log. What happened? Five one day and be a real boy. What happens to Muppets when they die. I mean, the physical, after they get just like, you know, they'll get destroyed or do they respectfully and off the, The Henson company to their great credit has a as an archivist. They, they file things away, they give things too museums to the sounion month and they have a very healthy respect for what they've created and for their history. And they, they are very very dependable about factual South about the Muppets. So they have that but I, I don't think they they, we were hoping they would go into a shredder or something. They don't want that. But it's like, I would figure that like a lot of, like, for example, they don't want people messing around with the with the, with the creations. And so they make sure that no one gets to see them dead. Where their heads cut off or something like that. So well, I think they're careful about that. But, and, and Caroll spinney is very careful to never let children. See him sort of half in and half out of his costume. I saw that HBO spinning holding up Big Bird's head. I didn't realize he actually holds it up with one arm. Yeah, and this guy's like life, he's still running this thing. Yes, he's seventy five. Seventy five year old men holding up a big giant head above his own. I mean, that's that's incredible. Strong shoulder. Yeah, I can't hold my arm over my head for more than five minutes without crying like, a baby. So I don't know how he does it. Most of them up performers are in Exquisite. Physical condition, is that may be why it's so many of the muppeteers are, are men or or male characters. It's more that it's physical to a, to a point. But, you know, now, there are plenty of women who, who wage For Muppets and they too are in pretty good. Physical shape, you have to be because you spend a lot of time on your knees and your back and and strange positions and clustered with other people. You know, whenever you have a little sister of Muppets, you gotta realize that underneath them or is it cluster of people? They get to know each other very well. So and the last last question we have from Eric in Kenosha. He wants to know why does off dominating half the show? And when will there ever be any content for a gay parents like myself and our children. That's two questions really nice. Treat has waged. The real change in the in the average age of their viewer it grows ever younger and so that explains why Elmo has so much of a presence on the show and why he has his own segment at the end for 15 minutes, Elmo's World. And he's in so many of the of the opening stories at the beginning of the show. Yep. It's because he he is at these days. And and the second part of the question is really intriguing. I don't know when. But my guess is that they wouldn't walk away from that topic at all. In fact, they would embrace it. And so I wouldn't be at all surprised if that would consume because, you know, they blew good about single parenting and and, you know, Gina on the show adopted as a single parent in the last few years and I could definitely see Sesame Street am speaking on that topic. And now that Margaret spellings isn't Commissioner of Education anymore or Secretary of Education. I don't think you can in the person in Washington. Yeah, I always thought you know or.

"Bob i really did have a deep disdain for the children. Yeah and you know and the producer johnstone sort of working. He was involved with a lot of those children television programs and he kind of learned how not to do it. Yeah i and i think that it's it's amazing that That the the first producers of sesame street first of all they were all man okay and The entire world of children's television was comprised of men. And when you think about it is kind of stupid. Because none of these guys had any expertise and child development or education or anything they came they came as entertainers then they. Yes they did and then putting a woman in in the driver. Seat joan ganz. Cooney really was Historical a revolutionary thing to happen. It definitely was and And she had bought a bachelor's degree in education. I mean she was no great scholar About child development and and and kids but at least she had some grounding in it You know it's it's amazing thing that it took that long it took until the late nineteen sixties for for that kind of show to coalesce and for that kind of energy to come together to give Something better to kids because television had been around for good number of years and You know it was just sort of happy. Circumstance that pbs was was just born right around that time and it it needed an identity in a lot of markets. Ps was nothing more than a rumor. You know i you couldn't find it. It was on these. Uhf stations you remember uhf that were fuzzy and hard to bring in and no one knew they existed and so what strikes me about. Sesame street is that it was sort of the first children's programming to be not just diverse in the sense of Of race but also in terms of shape size and and even had single people and weird. Muppets like the whole idea of bert. And ernie are they adults. Are they a gay couple. Are they children living alone. I mean that the the city that was presented in the show was really remarkable. And i'm wondering if the ground breaking this is sort of like right on the cusp of the nixon administration. And i remember nixon trying to cut off funding for pbs and french sesame street specifically but was there any kind of like debate or tension that we didn't get to see that may not been touched upon in the book about how diverse to make this. Tv show the the originators should show. Where gung ho to do it. They all really sort of pledged allegiance to the same ideas of of creating a show that would promote tolerance and acceptance and And definitely give children an idea that people could live together harmoniously there. There wasn't a single naysayer in the bunch so they're the ones who pushed it. In fact they wanted to push even further than they did and brought in. Jim henson into the project of tells jim jim was a friend. Johnstone's the guy who became the sort of the legendary executive producers street. And you know. They decided that if they're going to have puppets they were going to have. Jim hansen if they and if they couldn't get jim henson's wouldn't have puppets because he was that good In their eyes and he they all sense that he could come in and sort of provide a missing alchemy to the show at a time when they really stretching tr- try to find an identity in the summer before it it it debuted in came jim henson and he responded so beautifully not only with the with the muppets that he created for the show.
