Ben Deeter: NAACP Memphis President, Ben Crump Raise Alarms in Memphis
"You've been out covering this. There was just a press conference, and I want you to bring our listeners up to speed on the new information we have. Well, there's a lot of information coming and as you said, I want to echo everything that you just told your listeners Todd. It is as though they want the city of Memphis, Tennessee to burn to the ground. In fact, van Turner, he is the Memphis branch of the NAACP and his words were in for a night that this city has never seen before. That's the NAACP. Yes, all right. On top of that, you have the attorney, maybe they've heard of him a couple of times because he's the guy that will typically show up for the George Floyd cases. The Breonna Taylor cases, his name is Ben crump, civil rights attorney Ben crump, he just came out and said that Tyree Nichols will be the sacrifice. He is the sacrificial lamb to enact police reform and a system that is rooted in supremacy. So they're comparing him to Jesus Christ. That is coming from the civil rights attorney Ben crump. And that would and that was at a press conference that was just held in Memphis Tennessee within the past hour. Because we're all waiting for the release of this video. And from every leader from the police chief here, CJ Davis, all the way to our mayor, Jim Strickland. They're telling us this video is unlike anything they've ever seen. In fact, police chief CJ Davis was on Good Morning America today speaking with George Stephanopoulos and she says, she's never quite seen anything like this in her entire life.

THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"strickland" Discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"Their friend of the podcast, they've been with us from the beginning. Teddy and the main event, Saturday, Jared county at cannoneer in against the ever tough Sean Strickland, incredible fight, all action on the feet. I think it touched the ground for maybe less than a minute the entire fight Strickland to a lot more punches, but canon air apparently much more decisive and selective in the shots he threw. Interesting judge scoring though from the judges, we have 49 46, so basically four to one by two of the judges in favor of cannon air, but the third judge sell diamond sees it four rounds to one for Strickland. That tells you everything you need to know about how close the fight was, or maybe it doesn't. What did you think of the judge in and how'd you like the fight? I didn't like the judge in, but listen, again, not the brinks robbery, not I'm not going to go and cry in my milk or my Guinness or anything else. Like the Gordon fans did all the fans that just don't like patty, the baddie. I don't know. But I'm not going to go Berserk, so I'm not going to go bonkers, not the worst decision ever. I told strickler one. I told strangle him one to fight. I would have gave it to him. But again, can you make an argument for both sides? Yeah, I guess you can. And the argument, like I tweeted all night about it. And again, shouts out there and props to Brennan and Ian and rob by elite tweet team, Twitter team, we actually, I love when we get, I love when we get one up on the air and we got one up on the air on TV, they put it up there. I'm like a kid in a candy store. Oh wow, I actually text back to them. Hey guys, we're up on the air. We got put up on the air. You know, I've been on TV for like 40 years. I'm just gonna say that's pretty funny that what that gets you on. But I'm like, hey guys, we're up. Well, wow, so listen. First round Strickland. He used a jab in his legs, he controlled the range, and he went around. And to me, I mean, then the same in his second round. For me, it was box a one O one, where he's using his legs in the jabs to take to the second round. So he's up to the knot in cantona, kept applying steady pressure. That was his game plan. You know, he's deliberate. He's the better puncher. He, you know, he was being steady. He was hoping his pressure would break, or at least get to put some holes in Strickland a little bit. He kept applying steady pressure and he was looking to place the harder more telling punches than Strickland did in spots. But for me, it was Strickland who had to more consistent flow of offense. With his jab, occasionally setting the table for combinations, he could, he could have, I thought he could have and maybe probably obviously in hindsight, he should have done even more. Let his hands call maybe a little. Maybe let maybe let his hands go even a little bit more. That he did, but again, he was fighting a deliberate fight, so was kind of he was trying to stick to his fight plan and not obviously be reckless, I thought, for the most part, Strickland was doing that. Neither one did a lot. But for canon year, his best opportunities and I tweeted this, well, when he got Strickland to back out and then he stepped with him to catch him with a power shot, like a right head. That was what he did his best work. And that's where he had opportunities. When he did that, but again, he was in a house on fire, and neither was Strickland. You know, he was taking his time. He was, you know, he was deliberately, you know, stalking, you know, maybe almost, I don't say methodically, but he wasn't, it wasn't wasting anything. He was looking to place the most significant punch. And he did. He probably landed the hotter punches, but I thought Strickland landed more punches and clean punches, not as effective, but clean punches. And more of them than Canadian. Like I said, it was a very controlled cerebral approach by Strickland controlling a pace of the fight. I thought for most of it, I thought that yes, he did control the pace of the fight. Can he have may have stolen the I think it was a fourth round where let me just see my notes here, but I believe it was the fourth round, the fourth round. I just wanted to make sure I make my notes to make sure that my memory didn't lapse the inadvertent quite a few fights, it was a very good last dancer. The last round can, I thought Strickland was more I thought Strickland was more consistent and busier and that he won it any one to fight. As I said earlier, and again, the fourth round, I did think that kind of near stolen. And I'll finish up by saying, as I just said, but I'll rehash it. Yes, he landed the hardest shots, but not enough in my estimation. But obviously the judges went with the pressure and the power, you know, it is for Canada. But it was, it does make you scratch your head. When you got to split decision, well, you got to two opposite cards. Where one judge completely for cantona 401k and another judge is completely for Strickland four to one. So obviously I guess it

Rep. Scott Perry: Republicans Agree Crime Must Be Punished
"Crime is off the charts all over the country. It's insane. Here in Memphis, Tennessee, we've been at the national use two times this week for horrific murders and mayhem and I'm wondering what the Republicans are going to do about this seems to me that you guys should have a unified message to the American people crime crime crime. Yes, crime has to be punished. That is that should be and is the unifying message that crime should be punished, crime must be punished and punished in crime does not pay. Now the unfortunate thing is that most of crime is supposed to be handled at the local level and right there in Memphis, I see the outrage of mayor Strickland, right? He's outraged in these praying for the families. Well, as the mayor and as a former city council member, instead of being outraged, why don't you do something instead of instead of allowing those in your party to pay for the bail of criminals to get out after they get done burning down the city instead of allowing these plea bargains where a violent felon is left out with serving less than the third of the sentence to then prey on other individuals. Why don't you stand up before the crimes happen and do something about it instead of acting so indignant after the fact when the whole time you've been part and parcel to this lawlessness that is rampaging in every city and is making every American fearful of going to urban centers and is killing urban centers. Why don't you actually do something? So yes, absolutely. The Republican Party and the right has a part to play here. And it's the part we've always been playing Todd is being supportive of law enforcement of being supportive of those who follow the law and being supportive of appropriate punishments for those who violate the law and prey on innocent people in their communities.

Rep. Marilyn Strickland Says Overturning Roe Is About Control Not Life
"That up the Indiana attorney general Todd rokita has been hit with a formal misconduct complain over his threats to prosecute a Doctor Who performed the abortion on that ten year old. Yeah. They filed a complaint against them. They alleged she intended to harass and intimidate doctor kaitlin Bernard when he falsely insinuated she did not properly file a report. She did report, right? The single networked his decision to publicly disparage her threatened to prosecute her during an interview on Fox News as a major red line, the no attorney general should cross. They said the attorney general was tasked with protecting citizens not going after them without evidence on television. It seems like these Republicans are so eager to get on Fox News that they don't even check. I mean, the original didn't even check that there was a ten year old raped in his state. Could not wait to go on Fox News to call this a lie. When all he had to do was call Columbus police department, correct? No, no, correct. And again, this is why this is not about protecting the sanctity of life. This is about control. It's about controlling women's bodies. It's about controlling our economic opportunities. This is about control. And I said this on the steps of the capitol when we had the presser with speaker Pelosi and Lizzie Fletcher, the other co sponsored bill. And this is about

"We have some warriors on our side, including from the great state of Washington that we love represented in Maryland Strickland joins us now. Good morning representative. Good morning. Thanks for having me on your show. Aw, thanks so much for coming. I have to ask you, did you think in 2022 you would have to be voting to protect same sex marriage, contraception rights, a woman's ability to cross state lines to get healthcare? I mean, this is no, yeah, go ahead. You know, it's crazy. So I'm a freshman in Congress. So this has been 18 months. And I tell people, I can't believe it's already been almost two years, and I can't believe it has only been two years. And you're right. You know, who thought in 2022, we'd be voting to protect the right to a safe and legal abortion and reproductive healthcare. And then, you know, hearing an opinion from one of the Supreme Court Justices that basically opens the door and says, well, it's not protected in the constitution. So a lot of us started thinking, well, what's next? Yeah. Well, you're a freshman, so you must have thought, is this hazing or is this always like

"Since you come in and like I said to me, it's like it's amazing that you're here because you have pretty much everything that I can see that you need to really get to the next level. I appreciate that. I'm all about exceeding expectations. Look at Twitter. Listen to this. I listen to that, listen to that. Once again, I filter it, and I build that Kevlar to be like, oh, okay. If you're doubting me three months in, I'm like, okay, I want to really laugh a year from now. I always like making people, I always like making people look stupid at the end of these things because I've always just like, I've always just had to overcome the doubt because they don't see it yet. Right. Right, right. I'm like, okay, cool. I don't even invite you anymore. I'm just like, all right, cool. So I want to exceed expectations and doubt in all these other things because our rosters ridiculously insanely huge. This talented, and they were like, where does swerve fit in with a Jericho a sting, a punk, a Brian Danielson? I'm like, wherever the hell I can, wherever I want to. Why are you tearing that down? You know? Like, why can't you see that? There's a lot of other people that do. And the people that follow me and support me, I appreciate every last one of you. But I want to clear though, I want to clear those doubts. They don't see what I can possibly the potential of what I can bring. I want to main event. Anything, the pay per views, TV. I want to win championships. I want to, I want to also want to be that bridging gap between entertainment. I want to be like the Odell Beckham of this. You don't just see him on football. You see him. Hanging out with J. Cole and Trey songs and all these other guys on boats and stuff. You see him doing like little commercials here and there. You see him doing this. I don't want the only place to see me is dynamite and rampage. You can see me everywhere. I want that musically podcasting wise. I want to be on a fozzie record. I want Jared call swerve city podcast. You know, Tony Kahn's coming in next week. So I won't do it. I pay you back. Yeah, absolutely. I want to do it all. There's no limits to this. Well, last question for you. What's your favorite match that you've ever had and what's, in your opinion, your best song that you've done so people can go check out some of your some of your rap. Best song I've done, it was just, we just we just put it out. Our album came out march 18th, swerve city, tears album. I did a song with music soul child. It was like music soul child. R&B legend. Like literally done it all in R&B since I've been listening to him since 98. Okay. Frigging incredible artists. We did a song called not my fault. Well, the song is called not my fault. Yeah. Music soul child, songs called not my fault, featuring music soul child, me and my TV. We also do the podcast together. Okay. Our podcast is still on peacock too. They bought ten episodes from us. Still there. Not saying, and they mentioned it in the video game too. You're crossing boundaries, man. See, you're already getting there. Exactly. But keep putting them doubts out there. All right, cool. I don't know what I'm doing. I don't know what I'm talking about. So that's my favorite song. Favorite match. There's a lot of matches, obviously like a whole individually close to your close to my heart. I'm pretty sure you have the same thing. I got to kind of categorize them. Definitely the hell of war match from lucha underground, myself versus Dante Fox. That's sort of like, as far as like that character, that's where it was just like, all right, I know we did it. Yeah. I culminated this character from being just a guy on the show to this, that's where my crowning moment for the kill shot character in luja. And dependence Shane Strickland wise, I would say that that would be me and Matt riddle and MLW for the world championship and the W world championship. Confetti fell from the sky and everything when I won the Titan riddle was the guy still is the guy, but that's where I feel like, okay, I can hang with anybody. I knew it. I knew like Shane Strickland could make money in this industry. That's why I figured it out there. TV wise, television wise. I would say me and Leon ruff, I'm really proud of that false count anywhere match. That was at NXT. Yeah. Yeah, really, really proud of that. Because coming to the back, it was just like, I walked through with just such like my head of high, chest out, sweating, but I'm not tired, even though. I just knew. It's like one of those feelings. You know, walking through the car, you just like, yeah, you could say whatever you want. That was the shit. Inside you knew it was. And you can't know I can tell you different. That was like, 'cause my Twitter handles swerve confident. I felt more confident that day than nobody could tell me. That's a catch phrase, man. Guess swerve confidence. Yes. There you go. Market it and I breathe it. 'cause I was really unconfident. And then I really had turned the switch over to being just super confident and it started rubbing off like the fans were like, yeah, man, this is the guy, 'cause I believed it. And flush it out. I try to make sure people feel that. I want to admit that energy. Well, you are, man. Like I said, you look great. I'm excited to see what you do here in AW, and it's awesome to get to know you. Thank you very much. Thank you for the time. Thank you, brother..

"That you came from a military background. I know you were actually in the military. So how did military which is very regimented? How did that lead to pro wrestling? Was it something you always wanted to do? I was doing both at the same time. It was like, okay, so my first year as being a man was rough. As far as being a man, as far as like going like leaving high school, entering manhood, so my mom super supportive she was there at revolution. She's always supported this. But like as soon as I graduate high school, she was like, boom, you gotta get out, you gotta do something. I was like, okay, so I went to two weeks after I graduated, I went to military, went to literally boot camp in South Carolina. Oh, wow. Did 9 weeks of that went to Georgia, was there for 22 weeks, and I didn't come home, come home till I was like 20, 2000, 2008, didn't come home to like 2009 of February. So I came back, I worked at job, and UPS hated it. I literally, like, if I don't like something, I'm just like, memo. Oh, yeah, two weeks notice, no, I'm leaving. I'm out. So I literally dropped stuff. I didn't show up to work. I ended up moving down that was in Pennsylvania. This is like York Pennsylvania central PA. So graduating high school I graduate Donald high school and Lancaster and I was like 20 minutes. I live 20 minutes from Adam Cole. So we grew up in the same area. Congratulations. So we know each other since 2010 and stuff. So that's the story in the same cast of Pennsylvania. Lancaster. That's also like York PA was like the rich swan area. Okay. I'm trying to think there's some other guys that came up like Joe gacy, who's killing on NXT right now. That area. Chameleon club. Just groomed. I don't know how. We used to play a little time. They just shut it down during the decade. Yep. I wrestled there. Yep. So I ended up moving from Pennsylvania. We just grabbed all my stuff in a big old TV, moved down to Richmond, Virginia, slept on my mom's couch, started wrestling training that week. She paid for my first month's tuition. And then I got a job working at a cemetery. I was literally like, I wasn't touching bodies or nothing like that. I was just like, oh, there's some brush over here to clean up the corner. Yeah, so I just like picking up sticks and driving. It was like four hours of wasting time, but she was like, I know where you are, you're making money. Your monitored, you're good. My mom's just always put you out there, but she's not too far off. She has some connection to what you're doing. Same with the military, like me and my me and my older sister. We're in the same unit. So she was my sergeant. Oh, no kidding. Yeah, so my house set it up that way. I don't know how. My mom jumped around on a lot of different jobs. She sold houses, then she went to recruiting people in the military and then she sold insurance, then she worked at the funeral home. That sounds like it sounds like a kids movie. Sergeant sis. Yeah. She had a job in every field and I don't know how she does it, but her grind and effort is, I think, where I get mine. So my first year of turning 18 years old started wrestling training, military got a job, went to school at ITT tech for drafting and design, and found out my ex-girlfriend was pregnant. So that's where my oldest. Gotcha. Coming into the world. And this is all an 18 years old. So I'm just like, okay, I can't do all this. I got to take away something. So I ended up leaving school and it was focused on getting a job and supporting my kids. She was limited in Pennsylvania. So that was like a three hour drive, four hour drive to go see her and do military and then come back, train, work a job, be there on time on Monday, which is impossible to do. Without being tired, but I found a way to make that work. And then so I did that for like 6 years, and then after 6 years of the military, I got signed to lucha underground through Conan. Oh, wow. Yeah. So you'd already been training at that point, and then that was your first kind of big oh, my first match was like in 2009, march of 2009. And I was just doing little Indies. But your first big break was lucha underneath underground. That was on 2015. How was Zach is for a while? I watched that and I thought it was really, really cool for a bit. That was another place for the creativity just flowed. No matter they were just so open to ideas. It's a little tricky because they can't modify or change too much direction because it's written seasonal seasonally. No, oh yeah, we want this, but this person's getting over it. Like, ah yeah, but we already shot the scenes for this, and so we made it like a one big long movie almost. We shot it in the block of March. Gotcha. So the shot like three month block March to April, May and end in June. Say this character is getting over in December. Oh. Oh well. Sorry, I gotta catch you in the next season. That was the only tricky part about that. But it was like, that's where I really started figuring out, okay, that's where I figured I can't just be the same person. I was on the Indies to here. You have to you have to modify. You have to adapt, you have to change and not be afraid of the change in afraid of failing at changing. A lot of people are so afraid of getting the negative reception. Once again, criticism, they're afraid of that, so they just stay in their bubble and they just stay the path because. Yeah. So that's why I say I welcome criticism because it's going to get Kevlar on your chest. You have to build that up. You have to be like, you're shit. What was your character in legitimate? Because that's a pretty crazy thoughts and ideas. Oh, kill shot. Kill shot. Yeah, that was me. I actually came up with. They had an idea to put me in a mask. They had no idea what the character was going to be because I wasn't a Robert Rodriguez creation. Like a prince puma was a Robert Rodriguez creator. She created those characters. So there was a son of havoc one was created by him. Prince puma was. Well, I'm trying to think of more names, but thunder rosa's character was one. Got you quite a few. Yeah, cobra moon. Yeah, there was like a co creation. But mine was just like,.

"Different beat hard gangster rap talking about moving packs, pushing this down. I'm like, and I'm like, we're saying this on the USA Network. I don't know if we. I don't know if some of this content went over their heads because we rehearsed it like 12 times before the show, and they were like, yeah, we're good. I'm ready to know the terms. I'm like, are you sure? So he's doing that. And then I break off into a double time fast rap for like 36, I think I did 24 to 36 bars or whatever. And just went off and then shot the lights go out, then our song starts, then we do our entrance song. That's cool. So that's like not that easy to do live. A lot of snipers are pre recorded and taped. But we didn't live. And then we had to do our then we did our song, performance live around the arena. Oh, cool. All together. All in sync and we killed it, and I think that's when they were like, we need this on Fox. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because I think we were like, right before the main event too, and it was just like, I don't think that anything like that to that capacity has been done on WWE television. So I'm like really proud of that. If there's any Mark I leave, like NXT will never have anything like that ever again. How long were you guys on SmackDown? Like literally a month. Yeah, I remember just came and went to October 12th was like when we got drafted and then we were like, oh, November 18th. So when you let go, you get go, obviously you probably super disappointed. What happens then? I listen to our whole album that night. Went on IG live and just played the album. It was just like looking up research and I was just thinking, but I wanted to hear our music and the other songs that we had coming out later on. That was November. So then I was just the first contact I made was with rocky Romero and new Japan. I was like, hey, what can we do? What can we make this happen? Yada, yada yada. Right. But then my cousin will Washington. He got a message from Tony Khan. He's like, when's his 90 day up? So I was like, in the next day. Does he know will or is he? Yeah, he does rhapsody. He was like a lot of the media scrums. Ah, okay. Oh cool. So he's my cousin, but funny thing is we didn't know we need each other to about 6 years ago. But I was one of his favorite wrestlers to for him to write about to follow on the Indies. And he was like, and his dad just walks in. He's like, hey, who's that? He's like, oh, yeah, this is Shane Strickland. He's like one of my favorites. I mean, he's killing all lucha underground. He's like, you know, that's your cousin, right? He's like, wait, really? And I was like 6 years ago. I feel like, wait, what? Yeah. There's a Strickland. That's your uncle Steve's son. He's like, wait, what? So we guess how we became cool and closed and now like every wrestling event, every big event, always end up running into him and we always have a picture time with each other, talk. We talk back and forth. We talked last night. So that's really been pretty cool. So that was kind of the bridge to get here and done, obviously, Tony. Jack did you and that was it was pretty quick turnover. Yeah, yeah, very quick. I met with him at his hotel. After February or something like that, and we talked for like an hour and a half, and then the last ten minutes of it was about wrestling. That's how cool we really meshed. We talked a lot about football, a huge football fan. Okay. Gotcha. So how's it been for you here so far in AW? Oh, it's been great. It's been great. I feel like the first day I was getting eyed up a little bit, which.

"One of the reasons why I like doing talk is Jericho is getting to know people and we just met a month ago or whatever it was. And in ten minutes into this, I'm already thinking this guy's very smart. Very, very smart guy, the way you think about the business and you understand the whole concept of what it is, which is another reason why I'm so surprised that I'm very happy that you're here, but I'm surprised that you were in the position to have to come to AEW. Right. After being let go from WWE, but let me just ask you what was that situation because to me hit row was pretty cool. Much like, oh God, what was Bobby Lashley's MVP? Her business. The coolest thing. And then they break them up two months later. Hit row cause a lot of cool waves NXT come to the big roster and it's done and it seemed like a month or two months it might be a longer it was. But so how did that feel for you? Because obviously you mentioned when you had to do a new ring music, you didn't even have a destination. So obviously it kind of took you by surprise. For me, it was like the first thing was like when we did the draft, we were there on Baltimore. We did a dark match and we had AJ wrestle Cedric. But before that, we had like a two minute promo live, like all four of us, they just wanted to see how we interact and stuff like that. They didn't even ask to hear it. They was like, oh no, you got two minutes ago, do you think? Oh, wow. That's rare. Very rare for all four of us? Four people with a microphone. And who are all four of you again? It was used of me to hootie was ashante Adonis, AJ who was top dollar and Brianna brandy, who was a B fab. Gotcha. And so we just had, we had some lines tucked away. So we had two and a half minutes literally, Bing boom, boom, boom, boom. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. Boom. And then we wrapped it up. And then they had the match and everything, edge was like one of the first people to greet us in the back, so we need this product. We need this on this on this brand. This is the great content that we need as young and beautiful and stuff like this. So we're like, oh, cool. And then the following week, I forget what city we were in, but flew out, we did another backstage problem with new day. Without biggie, biggie was on raw with the WWE title. And then the week after that, we were getting flight information and then Breonna didn't have any. And we were like, wait, what's going on? And so AJ called to make sure everything was flight was light info was good and stuff. They said, no, everything's good. And they're like, she's not needed this week. We're like, okay. And then on the flight, literally mid flight coming down, your phone start buzzing and everything. We see that she's released along with a bunch of other releases and all that stuff. And we were just like, oh, what? What? It's a big part of the act. And she's a wrestler too, right? Yeah. Especially as a female that can talk with the guys in the group as much as pals around, like, super it's like a Wu Tang thing, right? Yeah, it's like the whole group. This is our Nicki Minaj right here. So our young money. So that kind of put a damper on a lot of things into who he had ended up getting his appendix removed, so he couldn't wrestle for like maybe another three weeks. So it was like me and AJ that were having to wrestle getting the ring and stuff. And then AJ apparently him calling in contacting them, asking about flight information for Breonna and all that. That was like a no no and stuff. And so we had to talk with Vince and Pritchard and Lauren itis, like in the hallway of the arena. It was like a little bit of a skull session, but at the end it would turn into like, it was like, oh, don't worry, we got a lot of fun stuff. And then Vince, you know, starts laughing and everything. Session? Yeah, like a little. About basically just AJ, is he dating her? No, you just standing up for the what we wanted to happen. Yeah, travel together. Ricochet, everybody's good. If it was like somebody else on the I was flying. That's part of your act. Yeah. That's like our sister. And you got heat for inquiry. Yeah. So, but it was like mainly on AJ and stuff, and then he was like, no, you don't do that. Yada yada, you had but then it turned into a positive way of like, this is what we're going to do tonight, something with Sami Zayn, it's going to be awesome. It's going to be fun. We're going to have a good time, whatever. And they were like, okay, all right. Cool. And I was all we heard of it.

THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"strickland" Discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"He dominated did not allow a guy who's tremendous at taking it to the bat do that. He completely shut the guy out there and again he uses left hand to set the table for right hands all night long, all night long the way you're supposed to do a boxing one O one. You know, and he was, will I make a concession in his analysis that I'm giving? That there will be people out there that will say he susceptible he being obviously Strickland that he susceptible to being out hustled to be in our work by some guys if he doesn't get a little bit more busy sometimes in his game. Yeah, I'll make that yes. I'll go along with that. I'll go along with that. But that's where control range and being a sharpshooter like he showed he was, comes in, that if you control range, you can counter. And if you've got a guy wants to be real busy and out hustle you and you can count on what clean shots, you take some of that game away from the guy. You take some of that away from the guy. And again, yeah. Could he be a little busy as sometimes. Yeah, I think there's a built in reason, and you touched on and I tell you again, I would I just went with the spontaneously. There's part of it with the coach as I heard you talk about again. Otherwise I wasn't bringing this up. And I think that that answers a little bit towards him being busier. That he wasn't as busy as someone. And he didn't need to be. He didn't need to be. Did what he had to do. And also, another another part is I heard one of the commentators. They do a great job. One of them said that somebody referred to Strickland as a savage. And I would say, yeah, a smart savage. Yeah. A smart calm, savage. Yeah, Sean Strickland, they do call him a savage sometimes and he comes across. He says some wild things at times, but I'll tell you, I met him at, I met him in the hotel, the night before. It was the New York City marathon coincided with a UFC event and we were all staying in the same hotel and I was talking to Matt and ray Longo couldn't be nicer guys completely complimentary, big fans of you in the show and Sean Strickland came over said the same thing. He couldn't have been nicer, said he was a big fan of the show, said he loved teddy Atlas. He's a nice guy. And the other thing I'll say about Eric is, I feel like Eric is a bit like you in the sense that if you told me a teddy's training this guy or Eric's training, this guy, in my mind, that fighter already passed a few personality tests where I'm like, I know that teddy and I know guys like Eric, they don't align or affiliate with people who aren't good people. So right away, I think, okay, Sean is like Shaun's got a lot of good things going for him. I know he says some things that are out there sometimes and I almost wonder if he's saying it for shock value to be more savage than he is. But from everything I've heard about him in the training room, he comes in into the training room every day to fight. No training, fighting every day. So I think when you had one thing, I had one thing to those are those comments those thoughts and kudos towards him positive things to him and Strickland grandmothers would have loved him. Yeah. They would have loved them. Especially at a dinner table because he doesn't waste a damn thing. He doesn't. He does a waste one freaking thing. He don't leave any spinach on a plate. He takes everything off the bone. He I mean, he doesn't throw unless he's going to land. Yeah, basically all he thinks is going to land. You know, there's no real waste or throwaway punches. You know? And he is conservative and, you know, he's he's not going to burn up energy wise too quickly because his demeanor is so calm. Yeah. His approach is so. It is so exact. Yeah. He's not looking to waste anything. So and he's very, as I like to say, he's very and his equality. Everyone thinks the quality is to punches and kicks. But he's very calm in an uncommon. I like him. I agree. Congratulations to Sean Strickland. I like that the end there. You saw something at the very end there last 20 seconds, maybe where the Strickland tried to goad Hermanson into opening up, but it was all cerebral was all smart. It was a smart savage because he was just trying to get him to get reckless. To come at him to drop because he couldn't catch him the way he was fighting because he wasn't leaving himself available. So he wanted him to not leave he wanted him to leave himself available by region by looking for something big so he could drop a more possibly score, you know, slow and icon. And that was interesting. I was watching it. He was gone. Come on, you know, you know, trying to get him to come at him. But of course Hermanson probably understood for what it was. For sure. Mutual respect by the two warriors at the end too, Ken. Yeah. Nice. Yeah, for sure. That was great. And let's jump into some boxing now. We haven't had much to talk about, and I'm glad to see there was some good action this weekend. Can I mention one thing before we close that up? Just and literally it'll take like ten seconds. Maximum and soriano on the early part of that UFC card. You know, I'm sure there's some fans out there that want to hear a little something. Maximoff, again, that is anything scintillating happening in that fight. But maximoff was the boss with the inside position. I talk about the geography. He understood that pretty well he got it. He was the boys with the inside position, controlled them when he had to control them. And I liked the way kind of reminded me a little bit of a fighter where boxer where he led these really short shots on the inside. Like he used his left hand or the right hand, whichever one, pop, pop..

"That but at the end of the day, they build some pretty big. I think Dana should take a penny of that. Just a little bit of that and maybe as a Padilla for these judges so they can get better eyeglasses when they need them. I don't know. I mean, you know, it wouldn't be they can write it off as a cost. You know, I know he's a businessman Dana, right? But write it off as can you would lend them your glasses, you got nice looking glasses there. You know and yeah, just have something where if it's necessary if what's keeping them what's impairing them is they can't get the right glasses with the right prescription. That's get them for them. Dana, let's get them for them. That was outrageous. And it reminded me reminded me that, wow, we're not alone. You know, when I alone. Boxing's not alone with the bad judges. I was, you know, I don't wish y'all no one else. I know. But we're not alone. Obviously, a quick wake up to that a quick remind of that was that judge score split decision given it to a Manson, one of the judges. So get past that. And that takes time to get past because that shakes you a little bit. You know, these guys put their lives on the line. They're gonna give up, potentially get robbed. God, so. I'm gonna piggyback off some you just said, the obligation when you reminded us that he had a new coach, Strickland. When you start, I've been in that position a lot of times about. When you start new with somebody, sometimes you take a step back to go three steps forward. What do I mean by that? You're teaching them new things. You teach them possibly a new philosophy, a new way of thinking a new way of approaching things. New technique. And when you're learning that and you absorbing that and you're in that process, you know that initial process of developing these new things, there is a step back. And sometimes your first fight out of the shoot with that new coach is a step. I don't think it was a step back. But I want to explain something that I thought it was very calculating. I thought it was very calm. I thought that it was really, really, he was economic and he was, you know, he didn't want to waste anything. And he didn't waste anything. And he was in control, pretty much all night. And as I like to say, he knew his geography. You know, it was to stay on the outside where he could strike and not let Hermanson who's very good at getting on a mat, not let him get where he wanted to get. And I think Strickland displayed a lot in a quiet way in a controlled way. And sometimes you don't get credit for the effort you put out what it's in such a controlled cerebral way. People want to see the fire. They want to see a little chaos. They want to see a little craziness that they say. I wanted to do that today. You know, and then, you know, and then it attaches itself to the performance. But you didn't have to say, wow. Saturday night, but it was there. And it controlled quiet way without the loud without the noise without the amplification. It was a solid dominant, really well done, well schooled. Effort in every year. Even in with the takedowns, he knew that he couldn't, he had a guy who wants to take it down and his takedown defense preventive defense was tremendous. He did not allow Hermanson to get to the dimension of the game that he needed to get to. That was tremendous. And that gets lost. I think some of that gets lost a little bit because of the things that I just explained. And again, I'll finish up on with a new coach. When a new coach is taking over, is implementing his new things. Sometimes when I say take a step back, what I mean is, well, you're concentrating on that stuff. You can't integrate everything into it. Your concentrating on being controlled your concentrate on showing a new stuff on being thoughtful of the new stuff of having it, you know, having a downloaded in your computer, right? In your brain. And while you're doing that, yeah. Some of the other stuff might add flow. It'll flow in the next fight or the fight after. It'll come in. You know, kind of like an orchestra. Yeah, you're here and mostly the horns and everything. Next time you're gonna hear the drums next time you're gonna hear the violins. Next time you're gonna hear some of the other instruments. They're gonna come in. Right now he was concentrating on a certain section of the band, a certain section of the orchestra. And I think that what I'm describing now, I feel very confident about it only because I've been there. I understand that when you teach it a fight and new and you coming out with a new coach, you are going to have more concentration on what you're being taught. And that is going to force you to kind of quiet it down. A little bit. While you're getting everything while you're getting everything in place while you're getting everything in order. Well you're getting all the cylinders eventually to all be heading at the same time the way you want them to. So I think I think that's part of what people might have experienced and might have seen, and that's the explanation for why you saw that. Again, I'm giving them I'm giving him a high grade because he dominated did not allow a guy who's tremendous at taking it to the bat do that. He completely shut the guy out.

And i'm really excited to beyond to thank you for the opportunity shunned. Yeah it's a pleasure you're going to. You're going to offer some insights to our audience. You set down a path of creating basically very early on. And you'd knew that there were that there were ways of kind of bringing forth who you are through Honoring both shape and drape like that. That's really good. I like it. I might use that guy joe. Totally gotta do get it get. Your book is called behind the button and it goes into that a little bit. Can you talk about your journey. Recognizing the You didn't you didn't start out owning a fashion store. You didn't start out Really enhancing women's looks. You started kind of where a lot of people start. which is you know almost at the bottom. Basically you talk little bit about that journey. Let's let's start with How did you know when you went to college where i did not go to college In my house we just financially wasn't an option for me so you know. I think i had a hustle in my brain. I saw Maybe i wasn't enough. Because i didn't have that piece of paper didn't have what everyone else had. But what i did have was drive. And i thought i had hustle because i didn't have that piece of paper and what i realized is what gave me was much more of an education because i was curious. Just like you're curious. George and i just took a chance on so many things and one thing led to another led to another and led to another so your journey and it stole journey in writing the book meeting the people and its before we jumped to to the right. There's just it's that's one big threat. Robbing the fashion industry. It's all worth it. So yeah i mean here's the thing is that is that is security and it is one thing that leads to another into another and what i wanna do is to back up and say okay. It did like the first thing that led to was. What before you answer that. I one of the things. I like to do on this. Podcast is to call out some of the lessons along the way already already. Just in your first answer you talked about. You know i- i- prompted you by saying you go to college as if that's a thing that everybody does and you said well i didn't which is fabulous and what you did with that was to stay. I felt like it wasn't enough in until like that. And that's definitely been the mission of my life as helping women say you are nothing you are beautiful and your beautiful inside and out. This is what we say. So that is the mission as you know being a kid. So you're saying you know. Start at the beginning. The beginning was you know being kid. And i was and it's always the star but My family of origin. I definitely did not feel enough. And there were factors in that. I was in a fundamental religion. And if you follow the rules you're in if you didn't follow the rules you are out so Early on i said okay. I want a different path. And i took that different pass and that's amazing. It is amazing so front not enough to sing darn it. You know what i am and you sort of you make it a declaration that took me fifty years to get there. Yeah fifty five dumb. It took me a long journey. But it's been an amazing journey. And i'm so grateful jazz. This is this is huge. That is one of the huge lessons is that sometimes you have to tell yourself that and tell yourself that and tell yourself that until you believe it in. It's like i have the drive. I have the curiosity. That's what's going to get me through and darn it somewhere deep inside. I must be enough A lot of people use the will not enough. That's why i'm driven. And i just really wanted to turn that into a lesson right now for our entire audience. Which is you are enough right now and you can let that drive you versus not enough oil then what what makes me enough. Not filling in anything that's empty. You're already whole and to really give that gift to our listeners. And our our viewing audience that you're already hole and A diploma doesn't make you whole a even the love of apparent or the acknowledgement of apparent. Doesn't make you whole that. you're already hole. And so you know you broke away from the mold. You were essentially out tribe like there's this in tribe and and Out tribe and you chose not to go along to get along that is so powerful just so powerful so you began work. I know this about you. You began work when you were fourteen years old. Yeah and you talk a little bit about that and then how that work led you to. It's it was almost this cascade of events that led you to the fashion industry and so without saying well and then one thing led to another specific as you can with will. This event happened in this event happened. And and that's what opened the door for me for fashion. And then i found myself working as you were. You were doing. I mean.

I think margaret was. I feel like strickland those like beyond that match up. But if i'm if i'm being from a name value standpoint rock whole still has is still a top five name. Even if he's i don't think it's a tough firefighter at one eighty five but he is well known there. There's a level of fame there that strickland would want to benefit from more. So there's a great clash of personalities. Here strickland's i think fancies himself sort of a down to earth. All i wanna do is fight. I want. I don't want to quote him but i would like to inflict some intense violence another human being in the cage. Two extreme point you guys can find the quote quotas very very nasty quote. So he he. He is a fighters fighter. I think that is at least or at least how he fuse himself. High positions themselves as opposed to a luke rock. Hold who i think we view we can all agree. A bit of a glory boy. He's got modeling contracts. He you know he's has this he's always had exuded this this thai school jock confidence that that i would say many of us You know can't can't relate to so there's a great oil and water messia personalities. They're so so. I love that aspect of it. I'm dreading the trash talk a little. I'm not gonna lie. I think the trash talk will just be bad Maybe bad in a funny way but just bad. But that's the matchmaker should worry about all the other aspects of of this matchup being says they've checked correctly so kudos kudos to everyone at the for and and to haul excuse strickland ruckle for getting this done spencer. The snot luke rocco versus darren. Till it's luke rock. Hold versus sean strickland. Was this the right piece of business in your is. It is a terrific stupid fight to me. it is as you said. You know the name brand guy. And in luke rock hold that can elevate sean strickland in terms of that casual audience. That still very much remembers moog. Rock hold still thinks of him. It still carries him in high regard. Despite the fact that when this fight takes place he will be thirty seven. He will be four years or five years removed from his last victory. Like it hasn't been good in if fight that everybody gets really excited for. He's been knocked out in in each of his last two fights in the second round. He hasn't fought in over two years by the time. This takes place. So it's one of those weird wants to me. That is ak said like a kind of feel sean strict. You sean. strickland is beyond this. There are other guys more active guys that make sense. But that's why it's perfect for him like you wanna give me a former champion. Who's coming off the sideline that has had a bunch of injury issues and has had some you know. Maybe the motivation. Isn't there kind of issues over these last couple of years and let me go out there and and put it on this guy to to vault myself really into that top five into that championship. Mix absolutely and for rock hold. It makes sense because as you said everything he mentioned to you of of what he's looking for strickland fits that bill and then we do have aac. It really is the prince of positivity the way he described each of those guys at and the things. They've said about each other. In the way they carry themselves was the most like disney spin version of that. Possibly sean strickland sociopath He is not a blue collar down home. I just wanna fight. He's a lunatic. He wants to live out in the wilderness. Have a truck of guns. Have no one come near him ever and if you do he wants the right to beat the ever loving hallowed view and as he said in his little you know. Hey luke rock hold. I hear you talking smack about me and i'm gonna smack. Yup look rock. Coldest smug i love luke rachael. I have a great relationship with luke rock old. He's a smug dude. That's just how carries himself. It's it's the high school senior star athlete on just absolutely to the highest volume possible like five years removed from graduating high school. And still coming back to tell you how awesome he is. And i get it. I love it. It's why it's why. I set off the top of this. This is a terrific terrible matchup. That i cannot wait for and i like this. Is that chaos ladder. Match up. That i am. I am looking forward to at the end of the year. Because whatever happens to build is going to be just disaster like so cringe-worthy in terms of what these two idiots say to each other. It's going to be amazing. Cannot wait it makes a lot of sense but all the sense of the world it is circled on my calendar already and i just get it to me now. I actually like. I thought for this fight. I thought the winner of your ira hall versus johnson. Who is going to was fighting for the luke rock hole championship like the winner is gonna fight. Luke made all the sense in the world. Because i just look at the racquet like whitaker kosta cannon air vittori brunson till gasoline all. Those guys are booked right now every single one of them. So you only have jack hermansson and you have luke rock hold it. Beating jack hermansson is fine. He's ranked number six. Gets you up. But in terms of how people view you luke rachael. Does the much bigger name. You get much more of a rub beating luke than you do jack hermansson and the eyes of most fans. So that's why. I like the match. That's why about it makes sense. And now you throw in the potential obama's on this big cars you know the going to stack but we'll see what happens. We're going to move mike. I've been so talked into this match up. I think it's because we've had some over the past couple years with all the rock hold various rock hold a comeback talks. We've we've we felt like we had the perfect match for a long time. It was like rock hold. Anthony smith is perfect. They don't like each other. It would have to be a light heavyweight. So maybe not great for luke but at the time we're like whatever that's just wanna cut wait anyway good good match from the comeback and then it was And it was luke rock hold and like wiedeman rematch people out little rock. Hold wiedeman rematch. Like okay that's always. That's always something people are going to be interested in and the time was that okay. Maybe that's a little better than the anti smith rematch. Back at one. Eighty five it's against the rematch of a championship fight. Unanswered questions would have been hadn't slipped but that never materialized either and looking back on now like okay for both guys. Maybe that wasn't the best match now. It feels like we have fallen into the perfect match up. The timing is just right so maybe it's good that luke didn't come back earlier And that this he you know he didn't know all along that's sean strickland was was the man who had to work his way up to this level And get despite. I'm not a believer in destiny or fate or any of that stuff mike but it does feel like this is of those three matchup that just mentioned this is the best one the best possible for the cold. And that's pretty exciting. I can't wait for our friend. Jessica crystal crews crystal guide to victory this fight. And i know as going to put her notifications on come to sixty five week could beat. Msg plans may be changing with new state guidelines. I'm sure you've seen it but we're gonna move to a state where there are very few guidelines we're gonna head to texas with question number three the point around number two ghost to.

"strickland" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani
"Four of those since returning spencer to eighty five. Just book the big fight. It will touch on that in moment but spencer. What did you think sean. Churkin's performance impress. Were you with what he put together over those twenty five minutes. I mean pretty impressed like this is clearly the biggest one of his career. It's kind of a similar performance to what we've seen from him since coming back where it's just that kind of marauding style coming forward sticking the doubt in people's faces and just kind of wearing them out with volume and and a gas tank that he's one of those guys that he doesn't put a a wild on you but it's just so consistent you never really get the chance to catch your breath. There's no breaks and so to me. It's it's a tremendous performance. You said four straight since coming back from the injury and moving back to middleweight shouts brennan fitzgerald for getting that out there early in the broadcast that he started his career at middleweight. My my sticking point that i loved to point it was. It was the kind of wind he needed to get over this stuff. We talked about last week of great. He beat kristoff yacht. Co like your ryan hall and and he said going in your rioters. a gatekeeper. didn't mean it detrimentally. I use the term. A lot. Because i don't i don't look at it with that negative connotation that a lot of people do it just means. You're you're where you are and there's absolutely nothing wrong with being the ninth best. Middleweight in the ufc. For a number of years. I mean to really damn good. And there's a lot of dudes that would like to trade places with you. And sean stricklin showed that he's a little bit ahead of that. He's a little bit better than that. How far better how much better how far he can go. That's kind of the fun part of this right now is just seeing kenny. Do those same things where it's not e- doesn't show necessarily the power to get you out of there. He's not coming with anything. Fancy or flashy. That's gonna like catch you off guard and get you out of there to hurry. But he's also finished brennan allen during this run and so how far can you take this and and we're going to get to find out here later on this year when he when he has that fight with luke rock. Hold which maybe doesn't tell us anything we'll get to that but this this performance last weekend was exactly what he needed. An an impressive to me aka. What did you think like. Did you walk away from vegas thirty three thinking you know. What that sean. Strickland loud fella. Who likes to talk in his fights and say crazy things. This is a legit title contender. They're watching right now. Do you feel like like. I feel like with kevin. Harlan huges winning fights personality shown and people ready to throw him into a title fight like at the end of the year. If you beat schalke thrown into a title fight. Get them right in there with busy do you. Do you have any sort of the same feeling which sean strickland with this run. That he's on right now after. Getting five straight wins. I'm pretty. I think i'm on record and on most of our shows that we've talked about sean. Strickland has an expensive appreciate this. That i was very much On the strickland bandwagon as hall banned by the way at barry hall bandwagon. By the way it was probably why i was so invested in this main event More i against. I think i didn't like people saying this is like a throwaway main events i understood. I understood the criticism. The car during your i still. It turned out to be a really good card. I didn't think on paper was a great card. But the main event i always thought wasn't intriguing event. I didn't understand people saying well. Neither of these guys are ever going to designate. If i if you write off all wins. He continues the best streak of his Stretches your career and absolutely could have contended and strickland wins than he's the real deal again on the prints positively i was. I was just kind of looking at it. You know how could it benefit both guys So yeah. I was not come sunday morning. I wasn't like wow. I can't believe everyone's talking about sean strickland now. I'm like i'm like no. This is the logical outcome especially given his performance. Which again. I think i picked hall. I thought hall had was the stage of his career. Where he's kind of like matured and he could he could Wouldn't fall some of the pitfalls that he's that he's gone into before and it wasn't a case he got he got beat by a better fighter I hope you're hall. I kind of i kind of flippantly tweeted something like you know. Well i've i've. I've been fooled again by the era hall. You know a story but again. That's that's just sort of like saying we've had expectations for him for so long. I think he needs anyone to tell him. But i think when he looks back in his career he's had a very good career. I'm and i hope. I hope he doesn't become the sort of cautionary tale like your house. Someone who has never quite like good enough to to make it to the titles. That's a lot of fighters that's a lot of fighters who spent a wish they could be that successful but focusing on strickland's i'm telling people do not count this guy out as someone who could not only compete for the title like. I think this is recently bias. I think you could really give someone like israel tucson. You're really good fight. I really do. There's there shades. i think. I'm not the first person to make this comparison. There's shades of michael spinks michael being for the longest time got criticized. Oh he's he's a volume guy. He doesn't have that one punch knockout power. He wanted us to see title. He what is he telling. He was a contender for a long time. We'll we'll strickland. Follow that pat. I don't know he's got the mouth as well. He's kind of trash on the building. Sb certainly not afraid of the microphone. So my my big takeaway is if anyone was sleeping on strong strickland before. I don't know why you would be now if especially if you watch that fight and not just saw the result. If you actually watch that fight you should say. This guy has the potential to be a top five Middleweight by the end of the year. So less than a week. After this victory ak sean strickland already has his new opponent. He will face former middleweight. Champion luke recalled in november at usc to sixty eighth fight has been verbally. Agreed to and this fits. If you watch my interview with rock hold from a few weeks ago. This fits essentially all the criteria that rock cold wanted to check off on the old clipboard..

"Where does that come from exactly. It's a house like it's not outside. Okay so i won't understand just and maybe just because i'm picky with these kind of things so i wanna get get into your head just a little bit so if right now you were to walk twenty feet and go outside of the sliding glass door into my backyard. You would be stepping onto tile and brick and possibly the grass and. I wouldn't expect you to put your shoes on in order to do that. 'cause part of the fun is grounding here because we are all ground level and the earth is right there so the thing thing. It's also a cool thing. If you came back into the house wouldn't expect you to wash your feet when you come back into the house right well. I'll always wear my shoes outside the house and then come back right. I'm getting. I'm getting libbers on all that stuff. Yeah you must go through a lot of socks. Gather a lotta socks no are you. A software depends on the time of year or are you a bleacher. Do you bleach white socks or do you just let them know you. Just let them. I let them go. She's a pair of slippers like by the door so very often. It'll be shoes off slippers on interesting. Yeah my feet are. I think it's just a habit. I just think it's a habit. You gotta get into a good daily habit to probably practice over and over again. I i usually leave my flipflops by the door. I go out. I put my flip flops. Back on when i come in and do the exact opposite. Two floors must be filthy. No no. I literally vacuum i- floors every morning. I believe that. But i don't believe that there isn't a crapload. Dirt just on your. There's absolutely one hundred percents out there. There's absolutely dirt on my floor. Probably because we have four cats there's also probably flee and my and my house to shoot and who. Yeah it's all bad. It's all but fortunately i don't make love with my feet. So that's that's good for me all right so that's one of the rules. No no shoes in the house. I'll have to figure out how that works. I'm going to try that a little bit more so literally when you walked in our front door. You take your shoes off well. I notice that you had your shoes on. So i just i guess so. You're all right. Living in my filth. You just don't wanna live here on. Hey it's my feet on your floor. I am totally okay with shoes without shoes. I would just ask you. you just. Don't jump on the bed with your shoes on. But i guess it doesn't really matter because if you're getting into the bed with bare feet and you've walked inside or outside with the yet okay..

"She's got a flip phone that's true. How about on her ipad. She power it down when she's not using it. No that was the microphone disconnected microphone. No no they're listening all the time all the time and i don't say that as somebody paranoid that's fucking reality with all right. Look if anything. That i say could actually be valuable enough to use against me. Totally fine now looks if i was married. My to ex-wives probably could have used some of that information against me. But now i don't really i. I'm too old for this shit. I really am on my god speaking of too old for this shit so i wanna talk about today's experience this moment. I knew this is going to come up. And i definitely think we want to talk about this. Yes so so nice guy community so you kind of let me bring you up to speed strickland and i hired a an outside third party party company to help us do some of the marketing to the tune of about eighteen thousand dollars. It was gonna cost not that we are so flushed that we had eighteen thousand dollars lying around but you know we understand the importance. Nothing happens until we sell something so in order to sell something. There's got to be the phone ring in order to get the phone ring yet. Do some marketing so we finally took a pretty big plunge in probably one of the most expensive things that we have invested in in our company over the last five or six years and It was his marketing company. And it really didn't pan out the way that we thought it would now. It took about three months for us to figure it out. 'cause they're start up and there's you know there's client there's prospect acquisition and buying facebook ads and all the other ads and start to get to know our business and then home what we're all about in who are perfect clients. We get that and we were aware that from the start but until today i really never realized exactly how much of mama bear. Strickland has kim. He started protecting i. It wasn't me directly but you started. It was so just give you the setup of the meeting so on zoom it's me instruct strickland and three of their of their people to of the sales people in the person that's doing the product delivery. And you know all we wanna do as gracefully say. Hey guys it's just not working out and we kinda built it up last meeting just just so that. This meeting was going to be well. We more than built it up even at the last meeting. We said we don't think this is working out. We want to talk to you about the exit strategy like hockey and they basically said no no one. We were like okay. You've already charged for this month. So we're going to give you another shot. Yeah because we don't want to keep fighting right now right so we get today's meeting and they lead in with the house things going you know. We're excite. Yeah all of these things. And i'm like now. The quality of the leads coming in isn't what we expected we've had. Let's say eighty leads. That have come in the door and eighty leads nothing to sneeze. It would be great if ever fucking qualified leads. If i can. At least get one of them. Raise one of them on the phone however usually the way that i'm looking at it most of the time at the crack house. The phones are disconnected. So i have not just anybody on on the phone so so we basically explained in that it. We're not going to continue and they can't leaning towards the well look. This is what we really need to do. And haven't given enough time and that's where i just..

Building successful lives, one plane at a time with TeenFlight,
"Successful lives one plane at a time at the as air venture in oshkosh a group of oregon teenagers stand beside an rv. Twelve light sport aircraft answering questions. They have spent eighteen months building the plane on display and they are eager to put their expertise on display as well. The adults who quiz them are rightly impressed. The students are with teen flight. The high school arm of airway science for kids or ask which serves students in and around portland oregon team. Flight is the brainchild of erin. Figura ted miller and van's aircraft founder. Richard van grunsven. Who wanted to honor the memory of ask. Founder bob strickland by creating a program for high school students team flight. Young people are given an opportunity to build an aircraft that they will eventually be able to fly. The student built aircraft has showcased at oshkosh and then sold to fund the next build session. Van grunsven noted that this is the kind of program he would have loved as a young man for the first build. Classy offered space in his hangar at the aurora airport and agreed to oversee construction of one of his company's own kit planes the rv twelve quote. The twelve is a well-developed kit plane. He said we were confident. That with the help of adult mentors with the right group of motivated kids. They could get the job done. And the sex. A little. Bit about eric krause. Who was a high school junior when he joined the inaugural teen flight class in two thousand nine. He said whenever. I tell people in school about the program they'd say oh you're building an rc. Plane krause said nobody ever believed we were building actual aircrash if the naysayers could have seen the students mechanical skills on day one their skepticism would have been justified said krause. Some kids didn't know which side of a screwdriver to hold a few years. After graduation cross took his team flight build plan to interview and discuss the process of building an aircraft as a teenager the interviewers impressed and he landed the job. he's now a manager advanced aircraft and he believes the program taught him not only general mechanical skills but leadership skills as well the program's goal is not produce the next generation of aviators or aviation engineers students pursue those goals and ask provides as much support to them as it can including scholarships to pursue flight. Training figure keeps a broader goal in mind when thinking about the program's impact quote. Most of the kids that we work with go on and do interesting things and do creative things so they use the skills they learned in teen flight. He said we like to say that. We're not really teaching teenagers. How to build airplanes. Were teaching them how to have a fulfilling life with good interesting careers and to be excited about it. Van grunsven echoed that sentiment. We have found that the program can be most helpful for kids who maybe don't fit in on other things and maybe aren't doing well in school but when they're able to work with airplanes they get excited. He said we've had parents tell. Their children's grades went up after they went into the program. They work harder and they do better great story and i wish there were more programs like this around the united states and around the world

"What is cortege? What does it? What does it do? Why is it differentiated from other projects in the space? A. High level like your. Quick, pit dive into details. Right right. So high is that we? We saw the this deficiency around skill ability particularly around. Scaling Computation right because if you want to if you want to see blockchain's as a platform to run. Computation, which is probably the objective of. The and Another block chain of Sports Mark Contracts. A. Platform for competitions is quite precarious in indifference on dimensions right now, especially different dimensions of skill ability. Of course, there are many problems that attack me skill ability in different ways. Which shows to tackle the problem of over how many Strickland's sections it can run per unit of time. So basically, Skilling competition, that's where we started from. But what's really differentiates us from other scaling solutions the fact that we. Also. saw that there was another deficiency that was often overlooked. Namely the ability for people to develop. Smart contracts or APP logic using mainstream software stacks or using. Resources Right. So if you if you're going to develop a War Japanese. Solidity. For instance, you're going to have a language limiting. You don't have gossips like the final system or anything that an os with give to you. So what if we could take? Let's say the West like Lennox and run it in a decentralized way so that that's Basically our most. Unique. Opposition here. That's why we are second lear that scaling computation Yo preserving the the security guarantees of the line blockchain like sheer we also providing Like a fool west where people can develop their. The logic. And how do you do that? Let's let's say like. How do you? How do you maintain the level one security while providing that scale like it's the seems to be a trade off somewhere. Right so so basically we are. We moved from global consensus local consensus, right so imagine that you have the APP. If you're thinking about the the aucoin that's on the blockchain, you need basically the consensus of everybody because everybody's using is involving the ledger. Now. If let's say, let's take another radical exemplify wants to develop a chess game on the blockchain and I play chess with you. Right we are to only people that are interested in that in that match. Then thousand people running full knows they're not really caring much about what you're doing who is winning that game. So in that case, when you have a local consensus, it's much cheaper to just have the people that are involved that they're interested in in the in the competition, the results of. What is happening there to validate? Or to participate in whatever is going on for that yet. So So. What you do is that that you basically you allow the blockchain vice computations that are basically Lennox virtual machines they have. A boot, a file system by Dr They have an input tribe. They have a program that they're gonNA run and they have an output drive. So this basically specified on chain We can explain that for later on but these competition runs off chain on the on the van. And because if Yemen is fully deterministic self contained and it also produces miracle proofs. Of the. Of the states and the Merckel tree route to hash of its entire state. We you are I able to Make sure that all violating notes gets the same state at the end of the computation. And if they happen. To. Disagree Right. then. Another data can can start disputes. And proved to the blockchain, that's the first civility was. Involved in a fraud or cheating the result of the competition. So it's basically an optimistic approach von Daters glamour would would claim a result for consultation. And if someone happened to disagree with that result they can. Keep. Proved to the blockchain. Vets. Honest. Solution is. Actually true and enforce it in the blockchain.
Miami - Florida Gators Pausing All Football Activities After ‘Increase In Positive COVID Tests Among Players’
"Diversity. Florida has a cove in 19 outbreak among its football program. The Florida Gators have paused all football team activities following an increase in positive covert tests among players that puts Saturday's home game against defending national champion L s you in jeopardy. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The Gators had 19 positives following Tuesday morning Testing. Athletic director Scott Strickland says the situation will be re evaluated by U. F Health and the Athletic department Sports Medicine staff Wednesday. Shutdown came three days after head coach Dan Mullen's comments about wanting 90,000 fans at Florida field to create a better home field advantage against the Tigers.

Some Conferences Are Determined: There Will Be College Football This Fall
"There There will will be be college college football football this this fall. fall. Maybe Maybe that that is is the the message message this this week week from from some some top top football football schools schools and and conferences. conferences. It It comes comes after after two two powerhouse powerhouse conferences. conferences. The Big 10 in the Pac 12 announced they were canceling their full seasons because of the Corona virus. NPR's Greg Allen reports how colleges that are planning to play hope to protect the health of their athletes. Even many hard core college football fans are skeptical how Khun well over 100 people on a typical team training play without spreading the Corona virus, possibly shutting down the season this week, three of the top conferences, the SEC, the SEC and the Big 12 said their plans this fall to play and do so safely. John Thrasher is president of Florida State University, which is part of the Atlantic Coast Conference. And what we frankly want to send is a message to some of the other schools that may be teetering on whether or not to play football. We think it's a bit in the best interest of our student athletes. For us to play football. We could do it safely and we can do it productively for them for fans, athletes and the multi $1,000,000,000 sports entertainment complex built around college football things looked bleak Tuesday. Two major conferences, The Big 10 in the Pac 12 canceled their fall schedules because of the uncertainty and health risk surrounding the Corona virus. The announcement by the remaining three of the power five conferences that they would have a fall season came after athletes began a hashtag. We want to play movement on social media. At Florida State Wide receiver Keyshawn Helton says he believes training and playing with regular testing and medical protocols in place. Maybe safer than not playing. You talk about 18 or 22 year old Just quarantine at the house. That's unrealistic. There's really there's so many other things that you know God, I'm going to go do which is not safe. So being here with my team, and all of us together is the safest forth. The college conferences are pushing back the start of their seasons to give them extra time to get ready and perhaps learn from the experiences of other sports. Putting players inside a bubble like the N BA has done in Orlando isn't feasible for student athletes who live on campus and have to attend classes. University of Miami coach Manny Diaz believes college football can learn from the English soccer leagues, which resumed play in June. Without fans with so much at stake. He believes his athletes will be careful. They're aware that they've got to keep their bubble small. They understand the value of what a mask doesn't and who that protection If you're around people who don't have mass on, you've got to find another place to be, but with all that there's risk and going ahead with the college football season. One concern that was reportedly a factor in the decision of some conferences to postpone play is new information about a heart condition. My card is that has been linked to the Corona virus. It's an inflammation of the heart that can lead to long term problems. Announcing its decision to play the Big 12 conference, said any players who test positive for the Corona virus would receive an E K g echocardiogram, cardiac Emery and further heart tests before returning to play. Gabe Feldman, the director of the Sports Law program at Tulane University in New Orleans, says If the schools are transparent and take the right precautions he thinks they can play. Every school in the athletic department has to be very clear with all of their athletes. About what the risks are and what the unknowns are. And then the athletes have to have a choice. It's one thing to play. But can there be fans in the stadium? University of Florida athletic director Scott Strickland says he hopes so We want to be on a have fans, and we hope we're in a position to do that. But you see, this is the NFL season now starts earlier than ours, and A lot of NFL teams and still have a made determinations. Yet that could be the riskiest. Part of all some schools were opposing plans that would limit attendance to 25% of a stadium's capacity, which would still bring together a huge crowd of 20,000 or more cheering, screaming fans.

A New Path to the NBA: Woj on the G League's Program
"Woge? It has now been three weeks since number. One ranked high school recruit Jalen Green announced on instagram. That he'd be passing on numerous college offers to instead. Become part of the new improved G. League professional pathway program. That's what it's called Q. Explain what it is and how it began Meena. It's it's really a bridge between the end of the wounded done era in college basketball in the NBA and what had existed which was really limited options for an elite high school player to do anything but go to college basketball. They put this program place. Two years ago and they started off with players they fell would be first. Round picks were highly regarded coming out of high school. One hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year would be assigned to League team and then you would enter the following years draft. They could not get anybody in that. I really year year and a half to commit to that program. A couple reasons. I think even more than the money agents and those who would advise high school players advised against the idea of going to the G. League where it seven. Let's say eighteen years old. You're going to be playing against grown men in there who played college who played overseas who've been in the NBA back and forth maybe mid twenties late twenties and they would hurt your intentionally hurt your draft stock where you be physically overmatched. It is a difficult lifestyle especially for young person. It's not charter. Flights it's not four seasons and Ritz. Carlton's it's the southwest flight connecting it midway Chicago to get the Iowa City. Adam silver was very moved by the fact that Lamelo Ball in R J Hampton to the top players in this two thousand twenty draft when to Australia next year take my talents to the NBA. Laura Hawks next year I will be going overseas to play an Australian basketball even with the New Zealand. Breaking choke deals in that five hundred thousand dollar a year range and there was not really an option for them. Here there are things we should be doing differently. So that for an American player who decides college isn't for me and I want to spend fulltime devoted to the game of basketball. That's my best chance to be in the NBA. There should be an alternative opportunity in the US spurred silver to push ref- Abderrahim. Who is the president of the G. League she and Rod Strickland Former all-star Mba guard who also works for the G. League in the NBA as part of this program? They've been out in the field. They've been out talking the families players and coaches and they certainly explained to Adam silver. We've got to change this program. So they updated this program specifically for players like Jalen Green. What exactly does it look like now. This is essentially a select team that will be comprised of the players coming out of high school and then veteran players who might otherwise be in the G. League who would get paid comparable salary to come play here. Play a mentor. Ship role to these players. Perhaps players on the back end of their career might like to who might have an I- already on coaching or working in a fraud office will working for the League and also realize that. There's going to be a great deal of scouting attention paid to this group of players. Nba and that. This might not be a bad place for them to still be seen as viable players right now. So that's the makeup of a roster. The coaches will be coaches that people have heard of with NBA coaching experience. Some of them former head coaches and they'll play a schedule that will include G. League teams but not a fulltime jelly schedule. So they'll play perhaps exhibitions against G. League teams. They might play national teams. Who might be touring from different countries? Different parts of the year. I was told they might go to Australia. Where there's an NBA Academy maybe play some Exhibition Games? There and stay there for awhile and train and move around and now the program became more appealing for the top level player. And you've seen now if you players make that leap when you say. It's more appealing in the financial. Incentives are better. How much better we talking? Well Jalen Greens deal with the G. League is around. Five hundred thousand dollars that includes incentives. I'm told that there's a base salary and then there's incentives for essentially just completing. Maybe it's a community service program or a life skills program things that are part of it that they disincentivize financially now. Every player is not going to get five hundred thousand dollars. Jalen green was a number one player in his class. And if you listen to John Devonian Mike. Schmitz are dropping analysts. And I listen to those guys. They tell me that he would have competed to be the number one. Pick in this coming draft and right now he's you know projected to be that in the two thousand twenty one draft so there was. I think a great credibility for the NBA The G. League to get a player that caliber come into this program that he might be a little bit of a Pied Piper for others but they're not going to pay all these guys five hundred thousand some of them the pay more than the one twenty five but they're really negotiating that and remember that. Those players inside endorsement deals. If there's somebody who wants to pay them to wear shoes jailing green again is is a player who see your companies have great interested Not all the players are going to get big endorsement deals and then there is a component that they will go back. There's a partnership with Arizona State and with the NBA. And you could go back and get your degree hate for by the League later on at some point and so those are the benefits of this for players who decide. They don't want to go to college or meetings. In some instances where players become eligible and can't go play college basketball. You mentioned that players. Who Do this can also get endorsement deals? Which at the same time this is happening the NC Double A. Just came out and said were exploring the idea of letting our college players also have endorsements with of course many caveats and limitations this being the NCW TC. All of this is being connected while the shaves but exploring for quite a long time. They always seem to sort of stay in exploration mode. And when you start to dig down into the fine print of what they talk about doing. It isn't what maybe the headline was of of trust. Release or a report about it. I will say this being a part of the. Nba's thinking was that they were reacting. I think a little bit to the Condoleeza Rice commission slash report which a couple years ago essentially said the NBA should do away with one and done. We must separate the college track from the professional track by ending one and done the NCAA stance was that the players who do not want to be in college. There should be an avenue for them to bypass college and that we should take them in here if they don't want be here and so the NCAA on one level has encouraged this of the NBA. Now part of the problem is the NBA and the Players Association. They have not been able to agree on the terms of ending one and done we call on the NBA and the N. Bpa power here to once again make eighteen year old eligible for the NBA draft so that high school players who were drafted may proceed directly to the NBA in theory. Both of them both sides the union. The League would like to end one and done. There was a sense that that this would have gotten done last year. But there are terms of an agreement that they can't come to to end it. And this may be shelved now all the way until the next collective bargaining agreement two thousand twenty four twenty five so for the NCAA right now like this is what they asked for and whether or not they loosen the ability for players to earn money in college or off lightness or however that happens then. I think that will impact this. But let's I still think there's going to be a lot of players who would rather go to college because by the way meaner if you WANNA get paid. There are plenty of places in college basketball that you can go and make money equivalent to what the Julius paying. And that's that's just a fact you're referring of course to the fact that it's an open secret that college kids get paid under the table. Me Knock. I've broken a few stories along the way. I don't think I'M BREAKING MATT. One of your with you right now.
The Nice Guys on Business Podcast
Oliver Wellington & Neil Mody: The No Effort Approach To Promotion
"Today's nice guys episode. We dig deeper into what? Why and how? With headliner founders. Neil mody I think I got that right. Neil mody and Oliver Wellington we're going to talk podcasting promotion and welcome guys to the Nice guys on business podcast and you did get it right where we're glad to be here. Thanks for having you guys are welcome in and Neil so everybody knows your voice. Neil can you? Can you say hi so everybody knows who you are when you first start talking ahead? Neil Haya okay that is neil and Oliver. Please share your voice because you said although you go second. You're smarter than than Neil. Is that correct now? I actually didn't say but Yeah this is my voice so it is now and we sound the same tough. Well maybe maybe for the first couple of questions you can say. Hey this is Neil speaking your. Hey this is Oliver speaking. That's probably a good way to tune in for for a Nice Guy Community. It's so rare that we actually have two people that were interviewing. I thought. Maybe it's because people are so repelled by me that they just don't ever WanNa come on at two at a time and but I see this is the actual a very good partnership that you guys have. We've you're cutting yourself to To shore but y'all overnight worked together for two companies now so over a decade. So we're we're we're attached at the hip on what's interesting is so my partner Strickland Bonner who co host. The Friday shows with me we do too interviews and one just stricken I shoot shit and talking about business and other fun stuff about our personal lives You know we both have what we would call both are zone of excellence. Zone of genius and Strickland's zone of Excellent improbably even gravitating towards zone of genius our our systems and creating great processes in a spreadsheets. And I suck at that stuff and I tend to find that my zone of genius or zone of excellence may be gravitating towards my zone of Janus is working in the relationship and sales space. So why don't you? I share where you guys. Kinda fit in with each other and then we'll talk a little bit about headliner and in some of your successes that you've had well I will. This is Oliver speaking. I will say that most people that know nealon. I think it's funny that we worked together. 'cause we're very different trying to explain myself by actually describing. Neil and so you can imagine the opposite okay. Nail is very technical very analytical very logical. He's very patient. I am kind of odd. Not those things as much and so like I don't know if Sarah Zones of excellence I don't know if I really think about things in that same way. But in general I. Can you know work a lot with our community building? You know working with users at our last company. We were with bloggers. I kind of lead the community outreach and community building there And then you know we're startups. We juggle a lot of the other kind of West exciting tasks that startup as to. But Neil and I actually kind of are a little bit of a two headed monster. When it comes to different projects will work on. You know all types of aspects of projects together. So so Oliver would you. Would you consider yourself of the two of you? Would you consider yourself the more client facing side of the business and you would think that but no okay so wait is so so neil is the is the tech expert and he's the client facing site so. I'm trying to figure out what the sandwiches there. Yeah so if you think about it right like we cover you know. We're working with larger companies and then we also work with just a huge array of podcasters. Right so if you think about the community of you know your podcast or you're just starting out and wants to get in and try out these new tools like that's kind of what I work with. Neil works with the background is acknowledging but also does the the more B. Two B. sales stuff at the higher level sue. Okay got it. I'm wearing a tie dye t shirt right now. I saw that and I and I appreciate and respect that I probably for most of my. I'm fifty five so for most of my My teenage years and even beyond I probably I look in my closet. I don't know if I have any of my tie-dyed shirts. I think my first ex wife decided that she was going to throw them all away like so. How about you Neil? What's tell me a little bit about where yeah either Describe Oliver to me or describe yourself to me either way totally. Well I think I'LL OLIVER. Those around about way to say for his excellence is a is creative juices and specifically community building so. I think those two aspects are like really big Boats in our last company in this on soap so yes this is just some background. We were one of the biggest content recommendation companies On the Internet it's called it was called N relate so if you've ever read an article in at the bottom those links of what else to read We were one of the biggest providers of that and our biggest market was in the blocks gear. So if you're a blogger circa two thousand nine two thousand two thousand eleven is a pretty good chance used our software. We're on over like one hundred thousand sites and so on and Oliver was responsible for really growing that Community building it serving it Working with them to really refine our product and then I guess yeah for myself I guess I mean I just yeah very technical background And so I'd say I really liked to think hard in deep and long about problems and problem solving different types of things so that's probably mine. If I had to come up with one let me ask Oliver. Let me ask you a question just because I know that many of the time some of some of the challenges that our podcast clients have as we are talking to those that are in our turnkey podcast community. 'cause I said I'm going to really work hard at trying to to wear a couple of different hats here. I WANNA wear the head of the podcast as a podcast producer in the owner of a production company. But I also want to talk to the entrepreneurial base. That's out there. But let's just talk to the podcast for a quick second because it sounds like you've had a considerable amount of success in this basin so let me direct this dollar for just a moment. What do you think is the is the biggest hurdle that people have to get over in order to start building community because that's one of the biggest challenge that talk about the big three and podcasting. It's how do you build community? How do you grow influence? And how do you make money while money and influence or important? It's really challenging to do any of those things without a community. So can you share? Maybe some of the some of the maybe some of the mistakes some of the things that you see that people should be leaning into when it comes to building community. I really think we've always taken a very kind of basic approach to this. It works and that's number one Listen to people's feedback to enact that feedback Three let them know about it. And that's kind of the cycle. We follow right so you release something thinking people will use it someway the they might use it the way you intended. They might not make sure when they tell you. Hey I wish it did this that if if you can do that for them in the nasty blast for that you make those changes and then over time you build the product that people really want and it'll somewhat naturally it gets spread around the best way people hear about us is word of mouth and so that's kind of what we've totally focused is just getting a great product out to people and continually improving it.
