"To take the money out until we take the money out of our system, our federal election system, it's going to forever be broken. It really is.

"Just nailed it when he ripped that guy apart and that person frequency the other day. And Tim, let me go back to that real quick too on the Trump thing with the anti maga movement and all that jazz. So now that you've been involved in the political space of it, what is it about the maga movement that people just hate so much? Now I know why liberals hate it because they hate Trump and anything Trump represents is racist homophobic. Misogynistic the whole 9, right? What do they call it? I forget. But they hate everything about it, right? What was it, what is it with people on the right why they hate it? That I don't understand. I mean, that's a good question. I think people honestly, I think people on the left hate us because, I mean, in general, like we've become almost a family. You know, like I've got almost 50,000 people that follow me now on social media. And I have a nearly interacted with all of them, not even close playing the stretch. But anytime somebody reaches out, you can just talk to them. You know, you can just have like, we're talking now. People on our side were all kind of working towards a similar goal. Whereas young people on the left, they come from so many different circles and they all want their own little individual tiny thing. And I think that's why the left doesn't get along with the left. And I think that's why the left hates us so bad because we're happier and because we get along because we're just because misery loves company. But to your question, I don't understand why some people on the right really hate, I think it's because they don't want to be labeled, like you said. Well, if you like Trump, then you're a white nationalist. I think that that's the only reason that somebody on the right might not like him is to spare themselves that label. I don't know. I just don't know why. I know you don't care, so I'm not saying this to you, but I just don't know why people care. Call me whatever you want to call me. We all know, look, 90% of Americans are let's just use Republicans, let's say 50% of Americans are not racist. We all know that, right? It's not a shock. But just more people, I think, got to step up like you do or like us with, just say, say whatever you want. I don't really care. These are my beliefs. I'm not a racist. I'll show you my history that I'm not a racist, right? Right. So I just don't get why so many people are so scared to hurt and why so many people's feelings are hurt. I mean, I'm so sick of feeling. I hate it. I mean, it's also because the cancel culture works, man. Don't call your boss. They'll call on your, you know, your company, they'll call your bank, they'll call your postman, don't call everybody in your life until they find somebody that will screw you over and a lot of people want to save themselves. That also, I mean, I'm not really going to go into it, but I've had some really weird attacks throughout this process that I'll say that really hit me off guard to change things for me. It was really crazy stuff. And not just emails and stuff aside. People aren't kidding when they say that you get threats and your family gets threats and things. That's a real thing, man. I've had some wild stuff happen. And I think that part of it is that too. They want to save themselves from having to do fans yourself. I've had to really defend myself the past few months over some stuff. They really fling and just because it doesn't make the media doesn't mean that you're not being hit. You know what I mean? All right. Hey, so two more really quick things. Are you planning to do any debating against Tim Scott? Anything I don't think you will. There's no way he will, I don't think. Yeah. And then the other thing, if this was a debate, and you have your like, I guess, one minute now, just give the voters out in South Carolina. The reason that you are the guy that needs to head to Washington and be part of what really needs to be a rebuild now. Again. So what would be that argument that you have I haven't said the reason to trust me over him is just that I've been through it. I'm in your typical blue collar person. I'm supportive of family. Jim Scotts never supported a family on a blue collar. He went from being like a life coach or something to an insurance salesman to being in, you know, he's never been out in the field guy or anything like that. He doesn't understand what it's like to grab your lunch pail and be on the hot sun all day and different things like that. I can relate to that a lot better and I'm not beholden to the people that he is. If you take a look, there's a great resource, it's called open secrets dot org. If you go on open secrets dot org, you can pull up the candidate. You can see it gives them money, Tim Scott is a Facebook guy. He's a Google guy. He's a Pfizer guy. And I mean, what do you expect? Literally. And I'm not a I don't want to be beholden to those guys. I'm ready to go and try to figure this stuff out. R two senators get 85 and 90 something percent of their donations from outside of South Carolina. Now, I'm looking to fix these systems. When our senators are bringing in tens of millions of dollars and 90% of it is from California and New York and wherever else, they don't care about our voters. They have no literal reason to because you can't vote them out because like you said, it's a money thing. You can't vote out the U.S. senator because it's 7 figures to beat them. It's millions of dollars. And Tim, why do you think Trump would back him? I think Trump backed him because he just he saw that he was a relatively okay ratings guy and I think from personal anecdote, I can tell you that when I decided to think about doing this, I wrote Lindsey Graham and email. I said, hey Lindsey I want to jump in the race. Can I get a meeting? Can I come in next week or whatever? And I can tell you 48 hours later, Lindsey Graham was at Mar-a-Lago with president Trump. And the next day, Tim Scott has endorsement. So that's a real thing that happened. So Lindsey Graham, so far as I can tell, was the one who got Tim Scott his endorsement. And then him going to the Florida. He's been a very interesting to take up too much of your time, but Lindsey Graham has been, I guess, will you keep using the same word as swampy as it can get? For so many years now. And you know, back before what Trump was president, I was like, oh, you know, I don't mind this guy, but now listening and hearing and watching his actions, it's pretty amazing how swapping that guy really is. No. But I mean, he got 70 or $80 million at his last day. And you don't when I meet people, you know, they love me and stuff and I was like you're the guy for me and but it's just it's a money game and it's come down to where if you can't fundraise it you know if you're not bringing in over a $1 million for me and when I need some kind of something to happen, I need some kind of big financial backer to jump on or something real being realistic and being honest about it because our systems program. Tim Scott won't give me the time of day. He won't debate me. He won't come out to anything like that. I can't imagine what I'm talking to his office about it. I've been invited. I actually called him today and invited him to a debate about election stuff and whatever and they said, oh yeah, they laughed and they said, fill out a for owner website, you know? But that's not mandatory is just insane. Like presidential political debates, whatever you're running for. That should be something that is an absolute must to get both sides. And.

"Number one, we don't want to spend the Dow or on our southern border, right? That's off limits. Can't spend money down there. Our vice president can't even go less than 800 miles away from down there. And then we're just so open to just spending money everywhere else. And again, I feel for the Ukrainian people, I really do because that's a tough situation for the innocent bystanders of this whole thing. But, you know, it comes to a point where we need to fight our own battles before we start fighting everybody else's. And it's just like this. Every time this stuff happens, right? Oh, America will come figure it out for us. U.S. will come get us. Bring in the planes and the tanks. But we keep destroying our own country, and then we're the first in line to jumping over everybody else's. It just doesn't make any sense to me. How do we have it? Yeah, they asked for $4 billion for the border wall. On our southern border, and we couldn't do 4 billion, but we can do $13.6 billion in Ukraine. Because the 10% for the big guys stuff, man, you know? They get their cut in one way or another. The people in our government get their cut. And the more the money that spent here locally, it seems the harder it is for them to get their cut. If it goes overseas or if it goes somewhere in Europe or Asia, it seems like it's a little easier for our government officials to get their cut. Just as an option, but we had done an interview. I just can't recall who it was. And he's down in the D.C. area. He does a lot of interviews with different these politicians. And we said, is there anyone at all that you just think has really outstanding character? They say it like it is. You can be, you know, you can trust them. And he literally paused, he goes, Rand Paul, Rand Paul is the guy that you see on the camera. He's that same guy when I talk to him. He was Brad pombo. Brad pillow. You can find him out on Twitter, I know. But the other guy, the only other guy he could think of or female, you know, either or was Bernie Sanders. He goes, Bernie Sanders believes everything he says. He says it to me. He says it on camera. I thought how pathetic is that. Guys like Ted Cruz get out there and he said, Ted Cruz will say whatever he feels is going to be perfect to get your votes fundraising, whatever. Ted Cruz was really quiet when we had the majority and everything. No, he knows that his bills won't pass that they won't even be brought to vote. Now he's bringing up all these great bills like, oh, send the foreigners to Joe Biden's backyard and stop. And that bill's not even going to get a vote anywhere. That's just get your name out there saying and that gets frustrating. It's pretty amazing that what Trump ran on now was Trump part of it at times who knows, but that swap culture. I mean, it's amazing. The more we've been able to interview people and actually get, you know, at the beginning it started, we just met with people in Buffalo and New York. And politicians that way. And there's a swamp here too, right? When you talk about local politicians and county politicians, but then we started to talk to people like you and a virus Donald, you know, many different people across the country. And you know, it's pretty amazing what we hear and what we see it almost doesn't make sense. You would think that these people would be worried all the stuff would get out and they just aren't. It's a swamp here too. Our state chair, the state chair of South Carolina called the maga movement, a colony of levers. That's what he said, the words out of his mouth. So what kind of Republicans do you think that we get? He's not going to, he doesn't want president Trump kind of America first people. If our state share thinks the maga movement is a commonly leopard, he just unreal. What do you do? You know, these people, they think that America first is just simply racist. And that's it. It's like saying to a traditional family, you know, a normal mother and a father that are raising their children, that they must be homophobic, right? Since you're not gay, raising your children and you're not a gay couple, you must be you must be gay bashers and homophobes. It's like insanity to me. And I don't know, is it ever gonna get better? He always asks, my goal says, no. They don't have policy to run on, and they've learned that bullying works. They can literally control people in our party at the simple threat of being called a bigot or a racist. We're a transphobe or something. They control people on our side because they're afraid of that. I'm not running for anything. So I can say, I just want to punch these people in the face. And I want them to not be able to speak through the spitting out of blood that's coming out of their mouth. Yeah, like after a while, you start to go, it wears on you. That's where on you. Like you don't say gay thing in Florida right now. There's so many Democrats that think that this bill is like, I think I have to work day in it anywhere..

"I've helped build churches. I've helped people jails and stuff. It's really neat to do that. And I'm really looking forward to maybe shifting into a different area of helping and making a mark, you know? Right. And actually building the building is like it's what we need in government. We need people who are building with integrity, honesty, character, you know, transparency. We hear that word all the time. Like that was the word of it seems like the last couple years. You know, I mean, as long as you go in there and you don't talk about any root causes of anything. We'll love you because we are tired of hearing Kamala is going to figure out the root causes of the illegal immigration. She's going to go now to Ukraine and figure out the root causes of Putin's inner thoughts. We're so sick of her. We're sick of Joe, I'm actually scared about the next three years, even if we flip Congress. I mean, I'm still scared about it. But what reason do we have to think as a people that we're in Congress in 2020 and did the fake election aren't going to do the same thing in 2024? We would be silly to think that all of a sudden of some moral fiber that they didn't have before. And Tim quick question, 'cause you are campaigning and seeing many different people. I'm sure on both sides of the aisle, right? It's not just your seeing people from the right. You're seeing a lot of Friends from the other side too. Definitely. What are people saying right now about this administration? Because I've had this conversation with my wife quite a bit recently. And I'm just like, at this point, there's just no benefit of the dollar anymore. Like you're doing a few things okay, right? Like, they're trying out there. There's just nothing. They have their couple trained responses or retorts or whatever, that it's like, I'm really glad that Joe Biden's president right now. But then when you ask, why? There's not an answer or the law of Trump or they can't answer why without saying Trump literally impossible. Well, it's like having like an O in 24 basketball team that, I mean, they just don't even put any effort in. They're not prepared. They don't know that the basketball should be dribbling. I mean, they don't know anything about what they're doing out there. It's intent, not incompetence, man. They're doing it on purpose. They're making bad decisions on purpose. I don't personally believe it's any piece of incompetence at all. I think it's 100% destruction of our country on purpose. I mean, think of all the people connected to Biden, Harris, and all the cabinet officials. I mean, think of spouses, children, everybody, that's part of that. I want earth can they be sitting there tolerating that. Jen Psaki said today in a press conference about the conspiracy theory about the bio labs and stuff in Ukraine. Meanwhile, yesterday we watched the congressional hearing while they were talking about it. It's absolutely shameless. It's just total shameless and lazy and I'm going to hope that you don't have a Twitter account and I'm going to hope that you don't follow any small right-wing media because I'm going to lie and I'm going to lie over and over and over again and you're probably not going to catch me. And I'll say this too about that. I said this on a show today too. What's hilarious about this whole bio labs Ukrainian thing is it's not like, oh my God, how could that be? We were just funding a lab that released a two year virus on us. It's not this like well, what a conspiracy. Could you believe that? That happened? Yeah, I could. There's like 55 other ones in different countries across the world. It's not that out of the question to think, wow, this is it. And that's why they're trying to hurry, I think, in my opinion, that's why they're trying to hurry V8 over there because Russia's threatening to expose whatever these labs are in stuff and they want to talk about some really dirty stuff is what it sounds like. I think that's why they're trying to get money over there. I mean, no reasonable American citizen would think if we had $14 billion to the Ukrainian government, but it's going to go to a to the people. I don't think any of that is going to be a piece of bread for anybody, man. The government is going to have it, and they're going to give it right back to the people in our government that gave it to them. And it's just a whole big back and forth thing. Yeah. How long have you been a candidate? How long has your campaign been underway? And how are you doing in raising money? Because we know it's all about money to get access. I've been pursuing this for a little while now. I've had a lot of success in the connections area. I guess you would say. And in the field area of meeting people, meeting great folks at different events, like I've done some of the justice for January, 6th events. That's a big thing for me. I hate that we have people still in the D.C. jail. So I feel like we're one of those around, I'll go try to speak at it or whatever. Yeah. As far as fundraising, it is really hard. I mean, the Republican committee uses president Trump and they suck all of the money out of literally everything. And it's hard to teach your regular voter. Listen, you got to be smart and you got to give right to the candidates. You can't give to the GOP anymore. You can't give to the RNC anymore. You got to find your Joe Kent and you got to find your Blake masters and you got to find those guys and you're going to give the money right to them or who knows what's going to happen to you. Right. So fundraising is lackluster because up against, like you said, a Trump endorsed in convent. So I mean, it is what it is. There's different reasons to run for office and one of my reasons was always to keep the other guy honest. If he knows that there's somebody out there, and if he knows that there's somebody that's chomping at the bit to take his job, well, he's got to be really conservative for the next little while. And he can't screw us over at all. Right. And I get to shine light on some stock and say, hey, look, Jim Scott takes almost all of his money for people like Paul singer and Ken Griffin. If you don't know the Paul singer and Ken Griffin arm, you should, right? Paul singer is the guy behind Twitter now. The money behind Twitter and all of that other stuff and Ken Griffin is a really famous hedge fund guy that absolutely hates president Trump. So why would people hate president Trump finance a Sanders campaign if that senator really liked president Trump? They wouldn't, you know what I'm saying? So those are the things that I'm having the opportunity to expose about and hopefully make some fractions like win or lose. You make us small difference. And that's all we can really hope for right now is to make some kind of difference. No doubt. And for you to be out there doing it, we give you tons of credit. That's why we love talking to you today. And we just on that note of fundraising, though, you can donate to Tim swain at swain for Senate dot com. All the words spelled out SW AIN FOR Senate dot com. Just to jump in real quick before we finish up, I just want to touch base on the Ukraine Russia situation one more time. Sure. You brought up that 14 billion. And I think that's super interesting. For a couple of reasons..

"Not making any sense, of course. And for under 5 year olds still, masks, I think. Well, and Tim, you know, to your point before about, you know, these masks and whatnot. It's hilarious to me to think about in February whenever it was March of 2020. Fauci openly mocked the idea of even putting a mask on. Like, that doesn't work. That was an interview. Those things don't work. And then all of a sudden, instantly, a month later, they were the greatest thing since sliced bread. And to your point, everything in science with this virus changed. 6 feet of distance, we found out that's BS. Masking. Oh no, you need the N95. No matter what it was, that didn't work. Then we said if you're standing up at a bar, you're spreading COVID if you're sitting down at the restaurant, can't be spread. Every little thing. The vaccine, right? The vaccine stops all transmission of your vaccination. The vaccine stops you from getting the virus. No, it doesn't. The vaccine stops you from doing it. Nope, wrong again. Everything. I just can't believe so many people are still drinking the Kool-Aid. I think it was actually a good movie we did. The one thing that they did have, right, was at the beginning of it when they were doing the temperature checks. That was the only part of it that was actually correct is when they were doing that temperature checks because you couldn't spread a COVID unless you were showing symptoms unless you were trying something you didn't have enough of whatever inside your body to transmit it. So the temperature checks were the only part of it that made sense and they got rid of them very early. I don't know why they thought it was the less invasive of any of it too. I didn't mind when people wanted to check my temperature, but if you tell me that you want me to put a mask on, we have a problem. Right, right. How about the early COVID test? Jamming something up your nose and you have never had one. I literally cried. I've never taken one thankfully. Let's just talk a little bit about voters because to me, you've got common sense voters who will actually read policies and think, it doesn't matter what this candidate looks like, what party he's from or she's from what color she is. He is, whatever, gender, sexual orientation, all these things. All they care about is what policies are you going to enforce. That's pretty common sense, smart voter. And then you have the voters who I feel like they get it that things really suck. That things are going terribly down the drain, but then they get voter dementia because like three to 6 months before the election, these politicians that just screwed everyone and they made everything turn into rubble like in Ukraine. Now they come back and say, oh, it's terrible. You need to vote for me. I'll fix this. Like the dummy. They're just dumb. They just don't understand. All they have to hear is, it's Trump's fault. Ah, Tim swaney likes Trump. But what do you do? How do you win an election these days? How do you persuade people to the point where they actually say, Tim swain is the right candidate on voting for Tim sway? I mean, you have to be accessible and a good thing that I think is not being not having everything come across as prepared. If somebody invites me to come and speak at something, a local GRPC and if you're something, I'm never going to write a speech down ever. It'll be something different every time. It'll be whatever comes off the top of my head. Whatever's current that day, it's a lot easier to lie and it's a lot easier to persuade people if you're just reading somebody else's words off a piece of paper versus being put on the spot all the time, you know? And if you're not afraid to answer questions, I throw out my opinion on literally everything. I don't think that there's any opinion of mine that people that have been following me on social media don't know about yet. You know, they know how I feel about you train. They know how I feel about transgender swimmers. They know how I feel about election and stuff. I don't hide any of any of it. And I don't play the fence. You know, I don't try to, if I have a strong opinion on something, like Leah Thomas shouldn't be in the girl's swimming, I'm not going to say, well, we should try to respect everybody and we should try to no, I'm not going to say that. And I'm going to say, Leah Thomas shows the girls in that sport, absolutely zero respect. Massive respect that we should show the autonomous. Theory. And Tim, I can appreciate that because just talking to you, it's like we're talking to someone like us, a common sense, common man, right? Like that's what I appreciate. The whole, you know, the suits what we call and the suits with their perfect speech. I agree with that. That's why Trump was appealing, right? Trump was appealing because the guy just shot from the hip. Never came prepared for just, and the good way never came with this script of, okay, here's what I have to say exactly how to say it because then you come off like Joe Biden does it times, right? Joe Biden has a script and I always said this about Trump. When Trump had a script, he was worse on the podium. When he couldn't read his cues, he wasn't speaking from the heart. And, you know, a common sense common man voter appreciates that or common woman. And, you know, they want somebody that's done what they've done, too. You know what I mean? I've been I've driven big rigs before. I can run a bulldozer. I can run a big excavator and all that stuff. I can do I've done it. If you've done it in the world of construction, chances are that I've done it too. I feel your pain. You know, if you're if you're a bricklayer or something, done that, if you're a contrary guy, I've done that. You know, I've worked my way up. I went to college for a little bit for actuarial science and economics. And I just absolutely hated it, man. And then I got into building and being able to construct things that are already left the lasting mark on my stage. And I've done thousands of home foundations. I've helped build schools. I've helped build roads..

"President Trump in the last election, and that's another thing with Tim Scott too. He told us, hey, just get over it, you know? I'm upset too, but get over, Joe Biden won. It was a fair election, and move on. And all right, to move on. In to that point, I do agree, right? I think I agree with the left even too. We need election integrity at the left is all about that right now, right? Election deprived. The problem is definition, excuse me, of election integrity is let's make it easier for people to not have to show up and vote and not show identification to vote. I don't agree with that election integrity, right? But in terms of exactly what you said, I just did a podcast saying the same thing. We have to take this serious whether it's in a state like California and New York who are always going to go blue or not. If 1000 or 2000 or 10,000 votes was fraudulent anyway, that's not good. And that reduces the trust that the general public has in your election system. And I think that's where we are right now. A lot of people right in love can't trust it, right? Can you imagine? And this is something that thought that I have a lot. Can you imagine if you were one of the poor people that was affected by the vaccine mandates, and you lost your job over the executive order, if someone has no business being The White House in the first place? I guess so many messages on Twitter from different people that's like, yeah, I work for whatever company in South Carolina, they're pushing a vaccine mandate. Can you help? And I'm in phone calls and stuff and I'll shoot emails to what are they care? They don't care, man. They have no recourse, half of these companies are run from people from other states and stuff. They're putting band aids on South Carolina employees. It's like the people making the decisions don't even live here. It's the most frustrating and disgusting thing ever. Good people losing their jobs over this stuff and nobody stepping in. Over a virus with the survival rate of 99.7% too, to make the world. I had it in January. I survived. I'm unvaccinated. You know, I don't mind sharing. I'll never, ever take the shot and I was over it in a few days. It wasn't really that bad. My doctor, my personal doctor, wouldn't even actually see us when we got COVID. He's like, oh, your wife tested positive on a rapid test, but I can't see you guys. Call me or go to the hospital. Oh my gosh. Thanks, Doc. That doctor drank the Kool-Aid too, though. He was all right on board with them all. They was terrified of it. He didn't want people with COVID, near him. And pathetic. But here's my question. with this. If you chose that field of being a doctor, a nurse, PR, whatever it may be. I respect those people a lot because I'll tell you what, I couldn't do it for a second. I see blood and I almost pass away. But you chose that job and then the time where you need to be doing it like your doctor friends and you don't you just don't have the choice to be like, yeah, I'm good, thanks. I don't feel like dealing with it. That's your job. You told yourself you wanted to do that career. And then, and again, I could get it. If it was a ball and you were bleeding out of your eyes and whatnot, I could imagine being panicked. But this might be most people. Most people that are healthy was the cold. It was a common flu. There wasn't that bad, yeah. And the doctors to your point, man, I can remember my wife coming home from one of her doctor's appointments a few months ago. And she was like, I might have to switch doctors. And I'm like, well, what happened? And she said, I was sitting in there with a doctor, and he said to me, he said, did you get your kids, the COVID shots yet? And our kids are 7 and four. No, it's like, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. And then he said, well, have you got to call the chart yet? To my wife. And she said, well, no, I haven't yet either. And he said, well, if you don't get the shot that's irresponsible, you could give COVID to your kids. And my wife looked at the doctor and said, wow. We've seen everywhere that it doesn't stop transmission. Why are you doing this? So I can't believe to your point that doctors are okay, either knowingly spreading misinformation or being completely uninformed by the Ivermectin stuff and the hydrochloroquine stuff. Those were obviously things that work, but if we were using them, then they couldn't have given EUA emergency use authorization to the vaccines. And that's what, you know, that's what they wanted to push on everybody. Because if these doctors are now beholden to these pharma companies and the lobbyists and the politicians, that's bad, but if they're not and they're just highly incompetent and they're not reading the research themselves, they're clearly not looking out for their patients. Either one is really bad, just like you might say, whatever reason Biden is terrible because he's incompetent or he's incontinent, whatever the reasons. It all sucks for all of us. So it doesn't even matter at this point. So, I mean, your wife's carotid. She probably will switch docs, man after all. Oh, we did. Yeah, I mean, that's just mind-blowing because she works. She's a realtor. And she's had a lot of women in her office and stuff. Did it take the vaccine? And there's still gotten and spread a car when we got a program on our family got COVID. It was from a vaccinated person. We went to my kids birthday party with one of our friends, who's vaccinated. She packed Poland, she gave it to us. Like, it is what it is, you know? This is like, this is turning into. We'll probably have a name for it, like Trump derangement syndrome. It's going to be like vaccine derangement syndrome, or COVID derangement syndrome. I thought Ukraine to focus on now. So they're not as worried about. Isn't that amazing? Putin takes one step over the line in COVID. Not worried about protesting for Ukraine or not a COVID what's the little thing called a COVID, nor do they call it the germs. Yeah, yeah, yeah. But it's got completely gone. Nobody cares. Everybody's back to going out to dinner and doing all those things. And that's what's so sad to me that so many people drank that Kool-Aid. And now just imagine magically it's gone. The Kool-Aid drank it all gone nothing to worry about. I mean, I personally managed to see. I think what the CDC has done is absolutely criminal. And they're trying to convince the general public and everybody else, we'll look guys. The science changed on this. And the science changed. Science doesn't change. Ever. You can get it right or you can get it wrong. And they got it wrong with masks originally. The science didn't change where now masks don't work for previously they did. They knew from day one that a mask with a poor, this big isn't going to stop a COVID particle that's that big. And that was what mass was actually going to be homeschooling my kid. They were forcing my kid to wear a mask at school all day long. And it was just like, that's not me. I'm not going to let you. I don't care who you are. You're not going to put a mask on my kid all day long. Just not. We finally got rid of them here. Like last week, I think Wednesday last week, the kids could finally go to school without masks. Except in New York City, now they're still stuck. And I thought, is Washington, D.C., I think, the same way. I think your unions are all over the districts and they're in charge. So they're not, they're not making they're.
"swain" Discussed on TFG Truth
"We brought on prominent guests here in western New York. We brought on national guests as well. And today it's sort of a national guest. This guy, Tim swain, running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Tim Scott down in South Carolina. Tim really appreciate you being on here TFT truth with us today. Thanks, man. I appreciate it. Thanks for having me. Yeah, this is super compelling to me because Tim Scott's been out in the news. He's been in he's been on as a conservative minded guy. And as far as we look, we say, cool. Anyone who's conservative who wants to run against some of these leftists are just, we're all in favor of those people. Tell us a little bit about your background, I guess, first, and then let's talk a little bit about the campaign. Okay. My background's mainly in the building industry and construction construction management estimating different things like that. We were just talking, I guess, backstage, you would call it a little bit about the building industry here in South Carolina. And I've got almost two decades of experience in that doing home foundations and doing different aspects of home build. From, like I said, from the foundation to maybe the driveway or even the landscaping or something like that. And in project management, I have quite a few years in project management of you had talked about the big communities and stuff. I'd be the guy that would take the call from the client and the client and say, hey, we want to build 500 houses over here. What's it going to cost? So my job for many years is to sit down and figure out, okay, what's it going to cost? Or someone else like that to build a product in this, you will not fit in in Washington because they don't really seem to care about budgets. Yeah, they don't. Or accountability or transparency or working for the people and no, they really don't. It's a shame to sit back and watch. Now we've got $14 billion for Ukraine apparently that we're ready to share. We need more money, I guess. Yeah. Tim, what got you really juiced up to get into politics? What was it COVID? Just all of it, to be honest, you know, when I was watching the election stuff happened, it was just such a such a great feeling where you watched a very small group of people. You know, like your general Flynn's and your Tracy beans is another South Carolina name and they almost saved the world in essence or like there's so much of the entire world as you look around us was riding on our lives and just that small group of people that wasn't afraid to be called conspiracy theorists or wasn't afraid to be called racist or whatever. You know, they towed the line and they put their box on the line and they almost, I feel saved us on. I want to be part. I feel like we're still going down that bad road. And I want to get in there before it's too late and do something to put the brakes on all this. What was it about? Have you always been a conservative minded guy, Republican, I guess? Traditional. Since I was 18, I was a Republican registered. But to be honest, president Trump was the first guy that ever ran for office. I felt like deserve my vote. He was the first guy voted for. I've been registered to vote for over two decades, and he was literally the first person that I was like, you know what? That's my guy. That guy wants what I want. He wants the good of the people. I'll get off my butt and go for him. I didn't go through the bushes and vote for round me or McCain or any of those because they were terrible candidates. Yeah. And I feel like, you know, people's issues with Trump, right? He's not presidential enough. He's not, you know, he's not polished enough to be the president of the United States. And I think you look now and you see what we've seen over the last year with Biden and his presidential suit and his unifying everybody, it doesn't matter. Hey, how about his presidential studio? Right. He's got a whole studio that looks like The White House. It's like watching the Mr. Rogers neighbor of an episodes back from the 70s. On earth. You're right. Exactly. And that's the problem. Tim, I go back and I'm like, I don't care if you're presidential or not. Get the damn job done, right? It was his unpredictability in a sense that kept us safe because Putin didn't know, is this guy going to drop a nuke in the middle of Moscow? I don't know. Like I legitimately don't know, and that kept him at bay for a really long time. And then we got somebody in that he knows, I don't know, it's compromised in some kind of way. We talked a little bit about this, Mike, and I about that mother of all bombs, Trump dropped in Afghanistan to take out a whole bunch of ISIS members and caves and all that. And that had such a chilling psychological effect on obviously the terrorists. But on any authoritarian type dictators, they must have been saying, like you just said, oh my God, like this guy is absolutely freaking crazy. He's willing to drop the mother of all bombs in Afghanistan. What can he do to us? Like, we better lay low. Completely with you. What would it be that you would say differentiates you as a candidate on the Republican side? Because I think we would take anybody against almost any other Democrat running at this point because they are clearly they're author rockers, man. They're just, they're lost. Somebody that you don't, when you look at the people that we call rhinos, right? There's almost two different classes of them. There's the ones that don't care at all if you know that that's what they are. And then there's the ones that try really, really, really hard for you to not be able to figure them out. Your Lindsey grahams, and I would put Tim Scott on that list, too. And part of the reason I think that Tim Scott's not an America first conservative is he's got a really terrible record on foreign policy. He was pro nafta. He was pro trans Pacific partnership. Right now he's trying to get more H two B visas to give America jobs away the foreigners while we're in the middle of an invasion of millions of people for the past year and something. And he's on the phone at The White House trying to get more visas to give away more American jobs. And all of those things have disastrous impacts on the trans Pacific partnership was terrible for America. That cost hundreds of thousands of American jobs from research that I've done, and it's like, you know, who are these people? Who do they answer to? Who can someone possibly answer to that thinks it's a good idea to ever give our jobs overseas? You know, your answer into your donors because they want cheap labor, you know? You're not helping fellow south carolinians. The biggest complaint that I've seen about Tim Scott is from older people in South Carolina because he's on the committee of aging and senior citizens or whatever in the Senate. And we've got everybody in South Carolina that's older on us is living on a fixed income. And the inflation and the gas prices and stuff is suffocating. And he's never mentioned any kind of plan for those people. What's your plan for the fixed income people? What's your plan? How is the people that are really affected by all this stuff the most? All he really does is repeat talking points for something. If you look at his Twitter feed, it's always, oh, Joe Biden, thanks. Record high gas prices. Well, that's not your job, man. Your job is to tell us, what's your solution? What are you doing to fix that? Is it more on your cover guy? I don't know how anybody could claim to be a Republican. And honestly say, Joe Biden,.

"Are no longer an option. We will have eventually a once. Our scientific mission does end Which eventually well we wanna prolonged. Not as much as we can of course but you know everybody who's is open about that there will eventually be an end of the mission but we definitely don't want to just leave a spacecraft as large as hubble up in low earth orbit orbit will eventually degrade and eventually hubble will return to earth one way or the other but we. Would you really want to make sure it's a controlled return to make sure that there's no danger of of it landing in populated area. We wanna make sure it splashes down somewhere uninhabited in the middle of the ocean. If that's if that's the choice the other option would be to and this would be done with Either either option would be done with propulsion attached to the apple cat or the back end of the telescope and we would either be able to do a controlled reentry or actually be able to boost it up into a higher orbit where it wouldn't reenter for a much longer time that that is going to be a very sad day when that happens. I'm gonna betray my age here little bit somewhere in my basement. I have skylab hat if you remember those when skylab came down are you old enough to remember that only well yeah we. We weren't quite sure where that one was going to land so there was a big pop culture the little plastic caps to protect you from skylab it was a great terrible fashion statement in the day anyways are do you have a favorite image. Is there one that you like more than others. you know. i'm i'm going to be a little weird kind of my favorite. Hubble observation actually isn't an image it's one of the trust. it's an older image. It was an error. An older observation. Taking of the one of china lifted galaxies. I'm eighty four. Actually a steph spectra. People are to it as the squiggle. But it's basically just a a a line you know kind of a green squiggle in the center and on one one side. It's wiggles over at turns red in the other side squiggle. It turns blue but that observation was one of the first real confirmations that we had of the existence of black holes supermassive black holes dissenters of galaxies. So you know me putting on my my my kids. That's that's sort of my favorite just one of those images that showed us that black holes actually really did exist out there in the universe man that that is so cool and basically what that was doing. That squiggle was showing us you know. I'm sure most people are familiar with the doppler effect that we hear with found on here on earth where training comes towards him. The pitch of the whistle rises and know. Goes away from you. You hear the pitch of the whistle e crease. Go down in pitch Light does the same same thing where light that is travelling towards you get blue shifted so it looks blue. Might the appaling away from me. Looks red shifted or redder. Squiggle was was showing based on the mass that we knew was in the the core of this galaxy. That's something in. There was rotating and it was rotating as a result of of mass that we couldn't see so at that point we knew that based on the loss of this unseen nats rotating that really the only thing that they could physically be causing. That was a black hole to things that images can tell you scott. Thank you very much. This has been a tremendously interesting interview. Especially for someone like me. Who sort of a space geek.

"Objects. is is hubble involved with exoplanets. And that kind of stuff very much. So we do a lot of extra pointed observations and to be one of our more popular modes of observation and the last couple of years. Explain to me how this given the distance. Because as i understand it an extra planet passes in front of whatever its host star is and as the light comes through that planet's atmosphere we are able to because of spectroscopy each stand the chemical components of that atmosphere right. We'll come away with with exoplanet detection. I it used to be. We would try to detect the presence of a of an extra planet or another body an stellar system by looking at how bad star was perturbed as the other object orbited around it. And you could tell by that. Wobble of there was something else that we might not be able to see that. Was you know affecting that stars orbit and we've gone on to more direct methods of detection where we can actually essentially a cult. The the the main star. The system and indirectly observed the The the exoplanet or like you mentioned even to the point where if that Planet a cult speed hits passes in front of its star and we can detect the spectra of the actual The atmosphere of that extra point determine what what is composed of but explained to me in in sort of you know. Dsl are terms how you can resolve anything that small that faraway well that is one of the the real special parts about about hubble. It's able to resolve things that we just don't have that ability to resolve here on on the ground and part of that is its location. I mean it is a space telescope so it is in space which puts it on the other side of The atmosphere that has The atmosphere is problematic for astronomical observation for a couple of different reasons. One obviously if down here on the ground. If it's cloudy you can't see through the cloud So you can't serve but more than that even if it isn't cloudy. The atmosphere is very unstable with thermal currents and and all sorts of things that give you a lot of wobble or vibration and makes it very hard to to observe through. There's something called adaptive optics that next that a little bit more and more easy for the ground based observatories but our solution obviously is to get ourselves above that and and go into space and not have to worry about serving the atmosphere and then lastly the big thing. The atmosphere does for us which is very important as it blocks certain portions of the electronic spectrum which is good for us down here on earth because it keeps us from certain harmful radiation but That radiation also sometimes what we want to observe From an astronomical saint point so we can observe in ultraviolet and that's one of the critical things about hubble is. It's i think one of the only still operating ultraviolet space telescopes that we've got up there so it is very very critical to the ultraviolet science community. Has anybody tried to translate hubbell's Focal lengthy into sort of earth terms. My longest lens is a five hundred millimeter lens. What what would hub will be in that term. Is anyone figure that out well. The primary is at ninety four inches. Two point four meters the secondary is twelve about twelve inch a little over twelve inches. I think point three meters. It's total folk. Links is one hundred and eighty nine feet and it's folded into a again it's a category grain reflector so that that that is folded to twenty one feet so overall it's got an ratio of twenty four forty my. Let's take just a quick break. We hope very much that you were enjoying today's episode. The very fact that you are listening to this podcast suggests that photography means a lot to you. And if that's the case you might want to have a look at frames quarterly printed photography magazine. We truly believe that. Excellent photography the longs on paper visit read frames dot com to find out about our publication and now back to today's conversation. There's a couple other sensors up there. Walk me through. The imaging spectograph in the near infrared camera outer space telescope imaging specter after we call six for short. Practicum is our one of our original insurance that went on in service mission to that gave us a really great uv capability initially and the near infrared camera and multi object spectrometer or nicholas was our imprint jimmer that also went on and servicing mission to. It had a a little bit of an issue while when we first got it up there observing the infrared. You need a very cold detector because you're trying to observe very faint microwave background radiation so the detector needs to be cooled down to somewhere in the range of seventy to eighty kelvin. The way nick mantra originally did that is ab doer. basically a a large storms. That's that that kept its detectors cold With a nitrogen aluminum foam. That was that was cool but it had thermal short. Unfortunately that was discovered once we got adored it so that The creighton basically boiled away faster than we expected it. To and nick moss was dormant for a co years after that and luckily in servicing missions. Three b-be which happened in two thousand two. We were able to put a mechanical cooling system on board and actually resurrect nick mostra while but nick moss currently is is because largely the emperor camera that i mentioned for on the white camera. Three at infrared channel is used to newer adds a little bit todd different technology and gives us a better results while you mentioned. They've been some issues with since it went up there so just to fill everybody in the first idea for the hubble telescope was came in the nineteen forties nineteen forty-six date. They give for the first sort of scientific paper about the value of space telescope. And i find this amazing if you think of technology was in nineteen forty six sixty nine national academy of science reports in favor of it. Seventy seven is when the funding starts nineteen..

"Mirror then what happens from the secondary mirror. The light travels back through the prime earner. There's a about a twenty four inch hole in the primary mirror that That leads to the focal plane Which is behind the primary mirror. And that's where our instruments sit in what we call the shroud on the back. End the telescope. And that's where are we have our four actually instruments and For radio instruments that that each have a piece of that focal plane that that it uses to to look at it. It's field a particular field of you for that given detector. Do the instruments b-actor do they rotate like nineteen fifties movie camera. You'd see the big dish change two different lenses or is it just a matter of electronics and magic to get a certain censor turned on detectors. Themselves are all electronics. So were moved far beyond the era of film. Here these are all electronic detectors. The ones that you see that are in visible light. Usually the ones that you see the pretty pictures that are released to the public are usually from our our. Ccd detectors are charged couple of vices which are basically just like the digital cameras that you would use that everybody has now. Yeah there are other types of detectors as well that detect in different portions electrostatic electromagnetic spectrum. Trouble actually can see from the far infrared all the way up to the ultraviolet spectrum and we used to detectors to to do that. I really want to get into this in a little bit about how you can see so much with that instrument the because visible light is such a narrow part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Let let's take a stroll through the different detectors from minute. I know one of them is the wide fees field camera. Tell me about that. One the w. f. c. three. It's probably premier instrument on board at least for ultraviolet and visible light. That takes the damages. That you again that you really see in the magazines and things you're not actually two different detectors one is a ccd again a couple of ice. I mentioned before just a digital camera that gets those nice wide field images that really characterize hubble couple imaging capability it also has an infrared detector So it's it's to kind of two cameras and one and that really helps us in. There's infrared light helps us e inside a dust dust clouds and things so we can actually take a picture of nebulae Where i started being born and then switch over to the emperor channel and actually see into that dust cloud and see the the protesters that are actually being formed. Is any of this real time. Are you sitting at at a monitor thinking holy cow. Look that or is this. You know a long time for for the images to somehow processed now. I certainly not real time At the sort of the path that the data follows is from from the telescope. We train them in our data through teeter satellites which are the tracking data. Relay satellite system. Satellite constellation that nasa operates and that comes down to ground station and then gets translated through a ground pads over to god base like center and then the science they south actually get shipped up to space telescopes institute up in baltimore on campus of johns hopkins university. And we really don't see the science data. The state itself is proprietary. Whoever whatever astronomer proposes a certain observation or series about situations they get. I observed that looking at that data. So they can do their own research or analysis on it and they get that for a time And then after a certain period of time that data then goes into the public domain and anyone can use that data to to Do their own research. That is amazing. The hubble capture. I'm gonna say captures an image. I realize even. That's not quite ripe. But captures an image it gets routed through satellites and then through ground stations to whoever actually owns that bit of time but just like photographers would shoot in raw and then have to put their picture in light room photoshop or something like that to clean it up. You don't see what we see. You have to add or adjust color you have to do all sorts of processing. How does that work. That's right Hobble all the hubble images that we take our monochrome images we don't we don't shoot in in color per se we do As you mentioned like you'll camera three Has a filter wheel like you would insert certain filters anoc know terrestrial cameras and such. We have a a wheel that we can select different filters for different wavelengths and different Emission spectra and things like that that we won't specifically wanna capture and so by doing that you can with those filters you can take a monochrome image and you have that information for that wavelength and then once you get that information on the ground you can stack those images with the way blinks at you're interested in and pursue produce a color image. You can either do a true color image which is more like a an rgb era green blue filter sort of thing or you can do what they call narrowband imaging and if you have any you know astro photographers. That listened to the podcast named derek. Probably very familiar with with doing this or you have Certain filters that are certain. Wavelengths light The popular ones are with hydrogen alpha sulfur and oxygen and getting those emission lines especially and then combine those two to make a nsa joe or image or an arab image often what is referred to as the hubble talent because it's it's similar to the color spectrum that that the color palette that w was on some of his images so with the true color images if suddenly star trek was real. And i'm sitting outside the pillars of creation one of the most famous hubble images. Is that what i would see. Intended to give a feel of that but it can't quite do exactly what you'd see every were again because the wavelengths that hubble is sensitive to a lot of times some of what you're seeing the image is something that we can't see with our naked eye into the ultraviolet goes into that a little bit of via the imprint. So we're seeing details that we wouldn't necessarily be able to see what's with our eyes and so is there art director at hubble. Somebody who looks at an image says this looks cool. They're actually essentially is They have a whole outreach department and who go and produce these images for for release in for publication and they do a fantastic job. They really really do the images inspire everybody i think. Tell me about the cosmic origin. Spectograph come toward inspector. And i probably should have said this upfront but We use a lot of acronyms here. Now i'm gonna try not to use them. In case one slips in just stopped me usually refer to it as costs or us at the sector and so this is one of our instruments that that records Ultraviolet images helpful and ultraviolet spectra which gives us a little bit different different information you can use spectograph to give us information on How energetic and object is how what its temperature is and kind of most importantly what the chemical competition with something can be by looking at these spectra of these.

At the goddard space flight center which is over in greenbelt maryland. Just outside washington dc man. I have to tell you. I am humbled. You know space pictures. Space has been a part of my life since i was born way back in the nineteen fifties and when the hubble telescope went up it was one of those things that i found just completely personally inspiring and the older i've got and the more i understood you know sort of the complexities of how things work. The hubble telescope has always sat out there as sort of a shining example of what we can do in terms of technology in terms of imaging technology specifically and it remains the hallmark. I think of just the coolest camera in. i can't even say the world anyway. Coolest camera that we know about. Tell me how does somebody wind up getting a job working with the hubble telescope. You give me a bit of your history from lou. Let's say you know high school up to working. There will much like yourself.

And it wasn't until after i actually started working here goddard and working for hubble that i realized i started looking back and i realized that in all these back issues of astronomy magazine i've had kind of chronicled the lead up up until launch for hubble and launch and then the initial problems with the mirror and servicing missions and. I sort of have this history of this product. I was working on sort of completely serendipitous louis. But it's even high school. I wanted to pursue astronomy Actually got a bachelors degree in physics. Not specifically astronomy. But i kinda wanted a more general education that would Could be a apply to more things which turned out to be a good idea because ended up. Not being ages this per se but in ended up going into an engineering position when i started here qatar when i started on hubbell we had a back in nineteen ninety seven. We have what we a flight operations team which is a group of Of engineers at the time it was four people per shift that basically would monitor hubble twenty four hours a day seven days a week. Three hundred sixty five days a year. And that's where i started was one of those engineers on the flight operations team and i moved over to another position on on that team as well was actually a real big advantage for me. I think i gave me a little bit more insight into the different subsystems on the spacecraft. I started out with The data management subsystem communication subsystem electrical power sitting on that council and then moved over to the pointing control subsystem and the scientific instruments. The more i learned different different characteristics of the different subsystems. Are you telling me the machines. A little complex isn't it really really is and one beneath things about hobble. is that complexity. And how everything has to work together as an integrated whole. I mean you can kind of imagine a bunch of engineers sitting around the table and arguing. Well you know. Hubble without the pictures is nothing so the instruments and the most important appointing control guys as well. You can't point at what you wanna take a picture of. What good is that. The power guy says well. Yeah but if you don't have any power to or any of the thing what what does that really. It really picks an appreciation of everything multidisciplinary That all have to work. Just right for everything to to operate scuffling. Well very very cool. And i gotta tell everybody. There are a number of websites where you can find lots of information about the hubble space telescope There is the hubble site website. There's nasa that. I mean you name it all. You gotta do is google hubble space telescope. And you're gonna get a lot of information scott just as sort of a general way to begin. Let's let's walk through it in general terms just front to back. I mean hubbell has in photographic terms. It's got lens cap. Then it's got a long barrel like a telephoto lens. So let's start with the aperture door and sorta work from there back. What are the major components that photographer would recognize or be interested in. Like you said apple aperture door is very much like a lens cap. We are very careful. We'll be our optics are pretty sensitive. we've got some pretty sensitive instruments down at the at the back end of the telescope and so the aperture door is primarily a means for us to prevent anything from coming in down the site and affecting those instruments mainly the sun is obviously what we're most worried about and we try to point at least fifty degrees away from the sun To prevent any sort of solar. Tim nation from from entering or site. If we get closer than that after door is going to close protectively Just protect all the optics instruments downstream. What what do you mean by solar contamination. Well if the sun is specially is bright in the ultra-violet so that can be very damaging to the optics that we have you can cause things in that even heart optics such as the baffling things in telescope to out gas and that can be very bad contamination point of view or that Out gas material can actually deposit on on some of our optics. Oh my heavens so okay and then you've got the long tube. Tell me what's going on there. And that's our ta Forward shell and the white shield basically just a large baffle and also provides some structure. Our secondary mirror is in that portion on the telescope. Hubble is a reflecting telescope a we use mirrors. We do not use lenses. In general so our primary mirror is out the centerline still a little bit of back of the center line of the telescope and then the secondary mirrors i mentioned is is up in that section. I wear lights reflected before it goes back down to the focal plane which is in the back of a telescope so tigers we used to have a number of reflecting telephoto lenses That were built. I think primarily for size five hundred millimeter lens would only be three inches or so out of the camera body and for someone who's not familiar. It's just basically. The light comes in and hits a mirror. It reflected backup towards the front and collects it very much like you see with radio radio antenna dishes. You know there's the big parabolic thing in the back and then Focusing point front so from the secondary.

A 100-Year-Old's Birthday Wish: Act on Climate Change
"The most critical issue humankind faces. And we're not doing anywhere near enough. Tom swain has seen a lot in his one hundred years on planet earth. He's been an insurance executive a city mayor. He even headed a state agency but it is eighties when most octogenarians might be enjoined quiet years. Tom began a quest to climate. Change awareness that journey lead to the creation of the swain climate policy series at the university of minnesota's humphrey school of public affairs. Why does this self-described small government conservative. So actively pursue climate change solutions. Tom swain happy one hundredth birthday this month and welcome to climate cast and crew. Tell us about the focus of the swain climate policy series at the university of minnesota's humphrey. School what. I turned two hundred or about to turn a hundred people. Ask me what i wanted to do. And my birthday. And i said i want more awareness and involvement on the whole issue of climate crisis. 'cause i think is the most critical issue humankind faces and we're not doing anywhere near enough. In order to prevent what ultimately some people see is the earth becoming uninhabitable. You've been a corporate executive. You've been a local mayor You've described yourself as a small government conservative for most of your one hundred years. Why do you see climate change solutions as good for our economy and our lifestyle. I'm not thought about it quite as much in terms of its impact on economy. Our lifestyle. I just think that the current generation is for the most part on this issue and expecting the next generation to deal with the critical issues
Dr. Carol Swain Knows That Liberals Can't Even Explain Specifics of Critical Race Theory
"Swain, explaining the horrors of critical race theory. After I asked this question about the euphemisms game, check this out. Dr. Swain, Did you notice that the advocates of critical race theory which is racist that I'm sorry if you supported your racist to suggesting we judge people by their skin color is the essence of racism. But did you notice they live in euphemisms and they play these games. He's obfuscation games. They can never describe exactly what they're talking about. Quick example. We just played Abram Kennedy asked to define racism. Had a really tough time. And then when I've asked people to describe systemic racism, I said, Okay, well described to me the system you're talking about, because most of the systems you're talking about her, in fact, run by liberals, they can't seem to ever going to tell you. The problem is that it's induction indoctrination that they memorize these concepts. And they have no clue what it means. And this is at the university level as well as what they K through 12 because they're starting, you know, with Kindergartners. And there's research out there that argues that babies can be racist as early at six months, and so, um, no critical thinking is taking place. They don't have to define their terms unless their ass back conservative and none of them can Critical race theory is racist. I see it as the civil rights issue of our time, and I'm proud of President Trump for leading the battle because he does have a big platform. And his executive order last year that ban critical race theory in federal programs by federal contractors. That was a step in the right direction because critical race theory was contrary to the civil rights. Act of 1964 civil rights laws, our Constitution's equal protection clause and just how we treat other Americans. Can't wait to

Our Favorite Horror Games from Each Generation
"What's up everybody welcome to game spook episode six, hundred I am Demon Hayfield I'm your host always today I'm joined by Tina a real mini or Tina Immediate Ville which has always been my dream. To. Slay, born. Scoop. and Michael Pain. Swain Ooh we're, of course, the CO-OP, Mejia's split-screen coop majors. Of course, we've got a great spooky show for you this week lots of spooky emails from our listeners telling us stories about when when they had the wits scared out of them by video games, you talk about some real news about some. Impressive Games that you can now play on your switch. Thanks to streaming but I. Actually learned a new spell this year conjurer of cheap tricks that I am. I learned to spell. I learned. To. Some. That's the towns you summon a Maga. Breaking. Shed minutes this amid sure. Not going to feed them after midnight and went I know the rules Knows the Maga noises yeah. On the microphone immediately that's great instincts. The first time Damon brought can't go to the office. His mouth is over the Mike immediately and Damon was like ten years ago. You GotTa start somewhere. Oh My friend. Thank you. I'm glad they're still making Bagua costumes for children. They converted all the unsold Iwo costumes seriously mogotsi walk to something I didn't even know probably then back to modify shaven as a baby yoga whatever it was probably that horrible Dhabi from Harry Potter I know that was That was a very cute mogg way. Okay he was. A. He was in he was enslaved. That's what was wrong with diabetes wrong with his left but not hinder the carrot. That's more wizard society. Problem. Dhabi's that he looks like a shaved Mog Y. You kinda does yeah. An old one one that grew really old bath time. Anyway. We begin this week with an email from Ethan He. wrote in to say Hello Goose Camp Counselors how missing breathe doesn't realize they're actually called. I. Hope it's keeping a your campers safe and alive with spooky season in full force. What are your favorite horror games from across the generations? I guess that's another way of saying all time. I looked up I was trying to memorize in a Not, blind panic before this like, yeah. Great generation where they slotted in I didn't know if we had to do start. where. Did you start? Because I did like eighties and nineties but they're all the games are like there's horror games eighties but they're like dumb. Dumb. Started in the full motion video era because games like Phantasmagoria dark seed are the first. Games were explicitly scary I remember playing. I have no mouth and I, scream ply I saw that game for the first time I'd never heard that before but seventh guest was the Dorky game that my friends that had actors. People pay be on camera I should say our walk kind of acting scenes that it's like watching a really bad dinner theater and that was like the horror game and then there's alone in the dark, which is an actual again but I never played that back then. It depends if you differentiate between horror and anxiety 'cause alone in the dark at that anxiety that resident evil. executed. So beautifully where you move slowly and the thing is coming towards you and you don't WanNa die and you feel very like ooh but I do think that's different than the horror of the while the attempted horror of like a seventh guest with they're trying to be spooky. I hated that different generations and generations idea a horror game was that they made you feel helpless and and slow. I don't like that idea. So like the start of resident evil the very first thing. I. Don't like much as remakes or like give me a bunch of bunch of action maybe not enough ammo make actually useful and then scare me I like that feeling because I don't feel helpless in real life I feel that way maybe in a scary dream or something but I really earlier in all power wizard. However. But I I remember the first time. I was really scared by game was just like being afraid of losing my progress unlike like will four from an instant kill from a plug us which is like sucks. Systems. There's very few AMMO supply caches and you just like are trying to get through this really difficult game. So it's actually legit scary when a Scorpion comes out of a neck hole and decapitates instantly because you're like, well, I. also lost forty five minutes of Gameplay. That's scary. We'll see that's why Har- general even just irrespective of gaming is wonderful genre because there's so. Many different kinds of scares. So if you're going the Zayed's track like I I made a list of some notable horror games I've played over the years and like blood borne is the kind of thing that scares me because it's difficult mom and blurred had like a more robust coop capability which was great for me because I got like bring a buddy along helped me through. But then you have things like the survival are element is more about like how are you with your resources which may be my top survival horror game is Alan wake but boy did I get stuck in a couple of places where like you're out of flashlights and you have a bunch of people running after you and you're trying to jump between like generator generator. Energize streetlamp to another streetlamp but there are certain areas where you just like it kind of pushes you into a point where it's really difficult to progress which not necessarily my favorite whereas like dead space is all about like the jump scares and some of the Gore kind of scares too. So there's just tons of areas you can go through when it comes to hard. My earliest experience is house of the destitute and arcade game. From the nineties late nineties and that was just sort of like I. Don't know that it was necessarily scary as probably scary for me at the time because I was younger and was very tense, and obviously you have to put quarter after quarter to actually make it through all levels. But. That's more like I suppose action element kind of. Like zombies are inherently scary sort of game as opposed something like like inside which which we talk about on scoop all the time, which is more of a like cerebral kind of. Psychological, scary

And at the time I said SCICLUNA. And that's. Still Very Near and dear to my heart, but I gotta say right now at this time in my life. You asked me that Damon. I have to be honest. That's stranding. Game of all time it I've had in the middle of a very spiritual experience with it I'm about one hundred fifty hours of put into that game and wow, I've just. It's opening the up in ways I didn't think I was I was thinking a lot this week? Because there's that hint at the sequel and found that strangely comforting, because first of all I had a great time play. It was absolutely favor game last year. What we laughing at what are we getting? He's making united. Here. We didn't close. Einstein has judging our tastes. He's he's like crying out loud about this. It's more. But even though it has some some weirdest, too. I had a really good time playing and I I. Really Really Look back in that time fondly and I like really WanNa kind of. A comfort game like that again it was. That's what I was calling the right word. It was my animal crossing new horizons. It got me through the quarantine instead of building my little house I was walking around. Little Roads Oh. Yeah, my maps complete every road section that can be built as. Sent, brother Yeah when. Curls up in the air as the craziest road Love, so, what was it before that stranding? I cannot. And we played the second ads. VR Game also very in inventive as Tim Schafer in the People Double Oh. I. In that's interesting, it's a very interesting answer destiny. For my like my personal, whenever I'm trying to come up with my favorite of anything of all time, just like my own little sort of a personal. I limit myself to only things that were released at least five years ago. That way I have some hindsight that I can sort of. You know you're absolutely right. There's recency biases in play for sure and the. Okay, we you. You say Yo exclude things from five years ago. No. It's no. It has to be at least five years old. Probably reflects on your in order for it. For me to consider it one of the best of whatever of all time, yeah, for example I have a playlist that I keep updated of my favorite songs of all time. They're called God tears songs, but I won't allow any song. That's less than five years old on that playlist. Okay I think that makes sense. I think the Oscars actually showed work that way. We'd have some perspective on things at that point. That's a great idea that's your. Of. Tina. Do you notice when we do a game of the year? Stuff that our staffs tends to think about things that just came out especially for music. That's when I really noticed an. Fresh on your mind. Exactly, it's also holiday season right so all these games are out, and it's just like I've never been able to separate that out. At the Santa, then towards the end of the year, we have more time to like finally. Catch up on some game, so it gives people an opportunity to play the stuff early in the year that they had. To not throw. Our whole came on the air system under the bus SAM.
Grandmas House Visits
"As I've mentioned before grandmother's. This house was the biggest house in Whistler. My following description of the house is intended not to Brag or Put on as as they say down south. It stood high off the ground as many homes in the south dead, and had wide steps, leading up to middle of the front porch, and into the main hallway, the porch ran linked to the front of the House with a wooden swing on the far right. This weighing Hong by small change was at the very end of the porch. This wing was part of our playground. Front doors I mentioned was in the middle of the house, and only the screen door was locked to keep babies from going out and get an end of the street. Entering the front door you found yourself facing long hallway with ten foot ceilings, and on the left side, stood an old wardrobe. No such thing as walk in closets in those days. From? That long hallway doors left and right led into the various rooms I only remember there were. Two rooms on the right and left, but many told me that there were three on each side plus the kitchen at the far end of the hallway and to the right door. Let into the sparse kitchen. And dining table, saying an icebox. Mada refrigerator not those days and not those prices. News, an icebox where you would have the iceman bring a block of in from the horse drawn wagon and place it into the top. My job was empty. The pan of melted water from underneath before it ran over, my idea was to avoid having to stop my important playing outside didn't go across very well with my grandmother. I simply suggested that I drew a hole in the floor underneath a refrigerator for drainage and save all that walking. Let them snakes house. She said ain't no way. The kitchen, there was a door that led out onto small. Porch one of the bedrooms happened to the amount of. I would go there and wonder. You see he had a hobby that influenced me for life. He built model airplanes and to this day. I'm sure the stuck in my mind. That is why I later became a pilot. Thanks Uncle Arthur. Let's get back to the front porch. Now are fun days. Where when only cousins came to visit grandmother, and that was mostly on weekends. We would cram many cousins into the swing as possible. And fareless Fred Wynn. Mount the back of the swain with his toes in between the wooden slats and holding onto the change, he would swing out. Away from the porch and backed his is. He could never quite reach the ceiling. By, the squeals, the kids. How much fun we were having. That is until an aunt. Or an uncle or grandma would put a stop to it. That swing is GonNa Bright One day. And break you Jawans Nex. I remember once this Wayne did break as my corpulent and and a friend set in it. She never went out with him again. I guess that was a sign from somewhere above. The Yard in front consisted of various plants and bushes. Flower Bush was as my grandmother called it five o'clock. As? She showed me the first time at five o'clock. The, flowers would close up for the night. Fascinating I'll tell you the day we almost died. My two cousins and I were playing in the front yard near themselves in Bush's. My cousin Barbara asked us the WanNa pull only in Manet, Sandwich. On white bread well, who, in turn that down soon came the long awaited sandwiches presented on a plate.

The most interesting new Android 11 features so far
"Entered eleven. They released the developer preview earlier than ever. You can't just go install like a Beta you gotta flash it and it's mostly developer facing stuff But the stuff that is facing a real humans is a chat heads. Bubbles are making a grand comeback There's this like conversation section which I actually initially got wrong announcement post where they basically taking a whole bunch of all your chats. And they're putting him in a separate area notifications they might actually finally do real screen recording natively thank. God and they also are going to have better sort of APP security permissions and the big one is scoped storage. Which means that just like on the iphone Android APPS aren't going to be able to just look at whatever they want on your story to They'll only be a look at their special section unless it gets special permission to look at like generalized storage. So in the same way that like I dunno on the iphone at like I need permission to look at this and the more ended up soft to do that in the same way that macos. Catalina is constantly asking you look at the desktop. That's coming for android there. You Go Anyway a bunch of developers are going to have to contend with that and Google's finally just stopping saying please update your APPs to support the stuff. They're just making them do it. Because security I guess because some of the the scope storage stuff was already an android ten right. It was entertainment. It was Andrew. Ten is like hey we gotta do this and a whole bunch android volkers went. Oh like okay. Okay. We'll we'll do it next year but like please please look at this and now they're like. Yo we're doing this. Why are they doing this through the play store? You can't issue update if you don't support this thing because they can't so it's it's this gets into like the wildly complicated territory of the difference between Version of Android a the API version of android and which API version your APP targets in addition to all of that there's a new complication in android. Eleven where you can target the newest and latest. Api IF YOU WANNA use the newest stuff you need to target that level of API like you WANNA use the cool new thing. Api twenty-seven you have to follow API twenty-seven rules right but sometimes like there's like features in it that are knowing whatever and so now they're letting you like dynamically opt in stuff in weird ways. You can opt inner opt out of certain parts of the API. It's just It's radically complicated is but I'm getting at well. I'm just saying apple puts out a new version of Iowa's everyone has to hop to do what apple apple because they'll just put it across the entire install base very quickly or if you want to target the newest and greatest phone which is where probably the spending customers are. They'll have it whatever you got to follow the rules. Dandruff has Greg Google. Broadly has android. It's while they complicated. Api situation has placed or approval process. Which another Leverett can pull. Yep Right and then it has placed services on the phone which is yet a third and it also has Ads If you want to use ads on your APP the Google on one of the bigger ad networks and they have different rules there as well including it especially for apps that are like for kids they now have the Google play subscription thing which is another layer of approval But the biggest complication of all. That's more important than any of this is. The vast majority of android phones are a couple of years old. You know they don't have the latest and greatest operating system and so there's literally no incentive for developers to like update to do things like get rid of the side drawer that interferes with the back button and the Pixel 'cause you know half a percent of users have this stuff and so it doesn't bother ninety nine point five percent of your users like where's the incentive to like put the effort into updated. I'm not calling developers lazy. I'm saying that they're following the incentives at the ecosystem offers them. You know. They're putting their time into other things that bring them more return. Sure Google has to do things like change. The incentive structure and one of those changes is like making scope storage or requirements Which is like well. Okay now if I if I don't do it my APP BREAK. And that's they're doing that in part because it's like a it's a privacy and security issue. Yeah but where is it a requirement like we're in that stack of things where they can issue requirements is it a requirement that is it's the API level if you WANNA target and you want to be and if you want your APP to work I believe on android eleven okay and I think that the game there is still the newest phones will run end? Eleven if you want to run in the newest phones you got to work with right right. Yep and then if you but you can you can target the API and have it still working like older versions of the US in some cases so wildly complicated. Yes What else standard eleven I mean that's the big stuff big consumer facing stuff. There's a you know you could go and look at like android police and nine to five Google. And they had just a blast of a day just finding all the features weren't technically announced earlier. A bunch of the features that weren't technically announced so so my favorites are Scrolling screen shots finally coming back Airplane Mode Turning Off Bluetooth. Which is not you know it's been that's been fine on IOS for awhile but they're doing it here How do you? How do you ship phone's headphone Jackson? Not have this man. They are going to let you maybe pin APPs to the share sheet Which is interesting. Because share. Sheet has always been a disaster on android. It's just always been bad. They tried to do a bunch of stuff like machine learning on it. It slowed it down and tried to roll that back. And so there's like screw it you can just like put the APP to you. Want there on your own machine learning. Yeah guess what you want but it turns out you already know and then they are updating the Bluetooth Stack for controlling Baluchis devices to A new thing that has the codename gobble door chef. Just tell to tell the story DARSHA GOBERNADOR. Show is the son of Swain his name is Swain forked beard and You know that's the son of King Herald which is The Bluetooth Bluetooth comes from. So it's like the successor to tooth forked beard. Yeah I don't get where gobble gobble doors is. The is the word forked beard. His Dad King. Harald got the nickname. Bluetooth right yeah king. Four to beard got the nickname. Gabolde door shut and he did not become a text entered so so those blue blouses. Give me way better now. Yeah sounds like they're doing a lot to do it. A Lot And this is not the main consumer facing stuff because they always wait for Google. I O for that but this is like the stuff that we've been able to Glean Yeah android police in ninety five Google developers. It seems like a lot of stuff is hold over from ten. They just push back. There's a bunch of holdover from ten so like we screen reporting recording was an early ten Betas and then it didn't arrive These bubbles same sort of thing there but not used them and the stoke scope storage and the other from ten is intended introduced permission changes for location where you could instead of having it be all or nothing you can do while using the APP. Now they're continuing to chase what the iphone does and you can grant like a one permission for location Just once and they're also extending that to I. Think like cameras and microphones and then on top of all of that. If an APP just keeps asking you every time you open it for location permission and you keep saying no eventually android will like figure that out and they will block the APP from asking
The Business Owner's Path to Success
"This is the entreleadership podcast where we help business. Leaders screw themselves their teams and their prophets. I'm your host Alex Judd and here at the start of twenty twenty twenty. We want you to hear something. A loud and clear from entree leadership. We exist to help this small business owner win and we get so so excited about that. And here's why we get so excited about that because it's possible and not only is it possible. There's a lot of things going on right now that if you have the path it's actually probable. That's right you can win as a small business owner and so today of the start of two thousand twenty entreleadership senior you leaders Daniel Tardy and Sarah Swain want to share with you. Everything we've learned to be true about the state of small business in America. It's better than it's ever been. There are more resources. There's more technology. There are more people talking about small business and how to have one and how to lead one the history of our country and it's not an economy thing it's a mindset thing and anybody in their basement can have a dream and decide that With a little bit of a Google search a little bit of turning some things on grass roots and getting scrappy they can start something to get off the ground and get the first customers and grow it and start hiring. And there's more tools and resources and knowledge than ever before and it's it's an incredible time access to that when you think about now ed click of a button. You can get answers to problems that you have or things that you're trying to achieve in just a millisecond and it's fun it's exciting and what we're seeing when we're talking to small business owners around the entire country is most of them are having a blast. Most of them are more excited about the future than even a decade ago. What business owners were saying about how things were looking and It's it's crazy. I think we hear stories of these big companies all the time or these flash in the PAN companies but I don't think people realize that a majority of the backbone of our economy are actually small businesses and how exciting that is that people have taken their passion into business and they are the ones who are providing the jobs and and they are the ones that are driving the Konami. We just don't get to hear about them every day. That's powerful and we see all the time. How small business is the backbone of the American economy? It's keeping this this economy moving but at the same time it's almost like there's this dichotomy where we see the people that are winning and are crushing it right now but then we also see all the stats of so. Many businesses fail within the first five years so many businesses don't even get off the ground so many leaders crushed by the thing that they're building. So how do we look at those two things and how do we as an organization entreleadership respond to kind of that dichotomy. Well I think a lot of the stats are driven by people who halfway do it. You know. It's it's not. It's not that cautious so hard to build a business and so much work and you're really rolling the dice. If you think you want to go do this you really not if you're going to work hard and you show up and you believe in something and you're committed to it and you're GonNa take it seriously you're probably GonNa win but so many people dabble in it so many people kinda stick their toe towing the water technically you know air quotes they open a business and then three months later they failed. They close up shop. Well they weren't. It was a hobby. Maybe you know so that really kind of inflates the stats auto hobby or they are looking at these businesses. That are making the news and are spending money like crazy. They're not using commonsense. They think oh I can I I can do that. Too and make a big splash. And that's what success looks like instead of using common sense principles on what makes sense to really grow their business. They're comparing themselves in. They're trying to keep up with with the Joneses but in the business world in general it seems like it's not a good strategy to just do what you see on the news. We hear about the businesses that are big successes. But we don't realizes is is that is one business out of how many who have decided to take out debt and make big choices and take big risks in these massive ways and it looks. It's like it's paying off but that's one business out of how many that that works for right and I know so much of kind of our recognition in that over the course of the past. Several years has kind of brought us to a stage as an organization being entreleadership where we've got a renewed sense of purpose and direction as an organization so I love for Y'all to tell our audience a little bit about what that purpose is and why we truly exist as entreleadership. Our roots have always been the small business owner. Just just like Dave started all of this organization on a card table in his living room. If you got a card table you got a shot and somebody that can start something in their living room and grow it to. What Davis done is big national brand just inspires people at inspires me everyday and I work here? It never gets old and when I hear stories of people that had this grassroots beginning and then they're able to really build something that has a significant size and magnitude and his providing jobs and making a difference in the world and serving their customers like that's the American dream and so because it's our story as a company and it's what has become the story of thousands of business owners that we've helped transform from being stuck or being early on onto really being a peak performing business. We just get so lit up about that story that we have doubled down and just said that we're stubbornly committed to small business. You know it with a a big brand like this. We get pulled towards what about leadership in corporate America or you know what about just general leadership or high performance habits and productivity and. I'm a fan of all that stuff but when we're trying to be all things to all people were nothing to nobody so we really focused on that. Small business has been a struggle. I wish I could say that. This was super easy and super clear to us all along. We knew we had this passion this heart but by degrees other people were drawn into the information we are providing and we looked up and we had people in there that weren't necessarily really small business owners and we really found ourselves going okay. This is a turning point decision. You hardly so I just said that. So beautifully and as absolutely the drumbeat of of our area you know this but there was a year and there were we had to make some decisions and say are we going to double down on this or are we going to start broadening our our business and what we offer and providing this and we're certainly not mad at those people they can come and sit in the room and join the conversation but we're not going to change our content and who we are to serve everyone. We are stubbornly committed. Exactly as I said we have such a passion and such a heart for the small business owner who is out there grinding. It out day in and day out. You know making sure that they're meeting payroll and they are better leaders and business owners family members because of what they're doing everyday that is what we love A love that a no Oh steph. Godin has talked on this podcast before about the difference between being a wondering generality or a meaningful specific and it was a powerful day for me as a team member member to sit in the room that y'all were leading the meeting and you said were putting our stake in the ground. We exist to help the small business owner win so out of that now that we have have that clearly defined purpose the small business owners who were out to serve. What is the next step from that? Like how do we start to really get specific about how we're going going to serve that group of people as entreleadership. Alex your exactly right. Our heart is to help the small business owner win. What we figured out is? It's it's if we can help a small business owner win the compounding effect of what then they will do to build an incredible team and that team has families and those families have children and in that business has customers. There's just this incredible butterfly effect that if we can get to the small business owner and help them where indirectly can help thousands more people through them. And so that's what we really get excited about focusing on and when you ask what what is next when we go. We're here to help. Small Business Owners win we have to zoom out and go what makes a small business. This owner not win.

The idea of disrupting its longstanding. Sales strategy the ICONIC TUPPERWARE party would have been unthinkable but with pressure to increase sales. The company is bowed to the inevitable and finally made some of its products accessible directly to the public with a brand new website the already inherent in the pop up store. Is that shortly after world. World War Two company founder. Earl tupper started out trying to sell his newfangled plastic conventions in stores only to discover that virtually no one was buying at the time in plastic was not the plastic. We know today according to Gizmodo writer Rachel Swain used it. I for wartime products like gas masks and military lamps. It was greasy and smelly hardly the kind of thing you'd use to store your. Leftover lasagne tupper changed the plastic formulation itself making it translucent. And getting rid the smell and the grease but consumers didn't trust that the confusing BURP products wouldn't make their food stink anyway without a way to know for sure or they weren't grabbing them off store shelves but as Gizmodo Sway be noted Tupper notice that some of his products were selling unbeknownst to him Direct sales sales company called Stanley home was holding parties where women would sell the Tupperware to other women at those parties dubious. Shoppers could smell the new inventions which were now free of the petroleum byproduct odor plastics past. The party strategy was working in spades.

Harvard University student from Palestine denied US entry
"There's a piece in the washington post washing post really covering itself in glory today. There's a piece in the washington. Post called a harvard. Freshman says he was denied entry to the u._s. Over social media posts made by his friends in spite deanna paul and susan spurred luga is myopia. Joey touched down at boston. Logan international airport on friday night prepared to begin his freshman. When you're at harvard university the seventeen year old palestinian student ever left the airport. The harvard crimson reported u._s. Officials detained for eight hours after interrogating the minor and searching his phone and computer they revoked his visa and sent him home to lebanon. Why according to a statement by showy an immigration officer claimed she found people posting political points of view that oppose the u._s. so she discovered nothing is shall we had posted himself. I shall we wrote after the five hours ended. She called me into a room and she started screaming at me. She said she found people posting political points of view that opposed the u._s. on my friends list i responded. I have no business with such posts and i didn't like share or comment on them and told her i shouldn't be held responsible for what others post then the crimson reported. I shall visa that was revoked and he returned to lebanon. Shall we did not return any messages from the postseason comment the harvard spokesman jonathan swain said an emailed statement that the university diversity is working closely with the family appropriate authorities to resolve the matter michael mccarthy's a spokesman for c._b. For customs and border protection he said the department is responsible responsible for ensuring the safety and admissibility of the goods and people entering the u._s. Applicants must demonstrate they are admissible into the us individuals deemed inadmissible based on information discovered cover during the c._b._c. Cbp inspection and the state department says visa records are kept confidential under american law so he can't discuss the details of individual cases so in other words this story sorry is solely based on a facebook account by a person who will not return phone calls from the washington post who's not turned over his social media accounts to the washington post and who story cannot be verified or disproved approved by c. b._p. By law but apparently this is indicative of the trump administration's xenophobia again solid reporting. There guys really really well done. I'm sure that's the entire story because i'm sure that a person barred from the united states and barred from their spot at harvard because he found something that profile i'm sure they would never ever feb to the media or on facebook ever now. Maybe the story went down exactly the way he said but certainly the story does not provide sufficient evidence that there should be reported this pretty insane but again they faith in our institutions is declining at a rapid rate as well it should be. I'm
MLB Draft 2019: Best Baseball Prospects Available After Day 2 Results
"And the giants were doing two things today. In addition to playing a baseball game, it was also day two of the draft. But I, I don't want to move on from day one, yet with our next guest, Keith law. ESPN baseball man. He's been all over the draft. He I'm looking at your Twitter feed in your story from yesterday. What you did like what you did not like from day, one of the draft for those of us who do not have ESPN. Plus, what does it say in there? Three thousand words in narrative. Okay. We could just why don't we just talk a little giant. Yeah. Okay. That's fine. Actually, I liked what they did. I did. Well, I mean, we'll start with day one where they to college position players. Very different guys. They should a big power bat in hundred Bishop, Maradona state, brother, Brayden bishops been up and down with the Mariners hunters corner outfielder huge power of any of the hardest hit ball. I personally saw spring scouting players came off with fish. It's fat in a game at Arizona state. He is going to play center now. There's swing invest. That's the big concern really didn't perform his first two years had a breakout season this year, wasn't quite as good in the Pac twelve but it's an upside play. I mean, you want to get a guy who's got that hunting power is gonna come probably with some red flags or question marks and pick Kent. You're going to get a guy like that, if hundred Bishop had no red flag he would have gone first or second. So I think at the ten spot it was a really solid pick. And they came. Back with Logan. Wyatt per station from Louisville saw this spring who can really hit. They can just see him. He looks like he's going to hit for power swings kind of flat. We hear a lot about launch angle. Now he doesn't really have it. And my suspicion is that the giants took him thinking he can hit. It's got a good idea to strike zone. He's find it first base, let's get them into our system. It's you can work with this wing to try to get a little more lost in its finish to his sheer size can result in more actual game power if that happens, you have first round value with your second round pick. No, it's amazing about Logan Wyatt. The way people are describing him. You know who he sounds like you sounds exactly like Brandon bell? Exact same guy. Yup. I think Brandon's bit better athlete overall. But otherwise, there's a lot of similarities and Brandon needed Swain, help twin hope you really need it stamps help too. But I remember talking to gut match news. Giants cross decker for many, many years. He's retired now after they took out and then he went had that big breakout year. A lot of it was just he hadn't had quality coaching, but they saw what they could do with him. Right. Which that's the similarity. This is my guest here. Why is that? They look at him and said we can make him better. That's a big part of and a lot of some teams don't wanna do that. They want the player he is what he is. And we don't want to have to do a lot of look somewhere going to embrace that say we star player don't in the process. We'll get a guy like a Logan, white into the system and they can changes and I particularly think that Kasparov on Sadie king from the dodgers where they kept doing this with players, they turn Muncie into a big leaguer. They turned Chris Taylor into good. Big leaguer. They Will Smith a catcher just got called up last week. Get no power in college. Last year, he had something like twenty three home runs in double A, because they changed his swing. And I have a feeling I just having scouted. Wyatt. I feel like that's where this is going. You know what kind of investment in your opinion are these teams making in their early picks and beyond the obvious? What I mean by that is, you know, to what level are they hanging the future of the organization on these guys. I think when a lot of fans see that early on the giants took a bunch of left handed power there immediately, and I'm by the way, I'm one of these people that says, okay, then that tips you off that they're moving those fences in because they're not going to take these guys, and then make him look at a four hundred twenty foot power alley in a couple of years. I wouldn't draw that conclusion here and certainly I wouldn't draft. I've never liked the idea teams this isn't specific to giants at all, but the team saying, well we're going to draft ballpark. We're gonna draft. It's kinda like drafting for right? Just they'll get the best. Player. Take the best players available hundred Bishop was probably the best player available at their pick. By the way, if he hits to get enough to get his power defenses could be four hundred fifty feet away, and it's still not gonna hold it. Okay. He flies with us day two of the draft working throughout the day. The other thing that I think, has has been noticeable from the giant standpoint is that through the first ten rounds only one pitcher and I know that it's not considered a pitcher heavy draft. But I is that just a reflection of that or the giants shifting the philosophy of it? Well, it was a bad pitching draft rights addressed that sort of at the general level. I assume listeners are split following the draft rapidly. Like I am was this is my eighteenth draft between my time with the Blue Jays. My time at ESPN keeps the worst college pitching draft I've ever seen, and I am actually having a heart. Somebody asked me, well what was the worst pitching draft before this? I said, I don't actually know this one so much worse. It's just a waste all the others from my memory. It was just an baseball, America's gay a Cooper, had a great piece that showed historically, when it's a fad pitching drafts chasing pitching is just a fad strategy. So I look at the giants, they will maybe they believe that maybe they just took what we're not gonna make you don't force it. Right. It's the draft isn't giving you pitchers. Take the position player. Like again, I think they did pretty well in that regard. But I also wonder if there was any philosophy here, just a question you would ask four hundred other folks in front office was this also the belief that their safety and position players? Right. Giants farm system is down. It's just week after years of high up little draft picks and contending trading. So was this just, hey, let's restock the system and try to get some certainty, which do get with position players. You tend not to get with pitchers just pitchers. Get her. When you look at, you know, the system as a whole and, and, you know, it all starts take shape with the names that they added to it over the last couple of days. But I think a lot of giants fans are starting to come to grips with what you're describing in the fact that this is it needs to be reworked, and it's going to take some time in, in your estimate. How long of a project is far Hans ID looking at. It depends a little bit. Like the way it is right now, this is just a draft and build situation, you're probably still four years away, counting this year from turning this into a contending situation, or at least we'll take competitive situation. The one thing is they still have some major league assets that have trade if they can take medicine Bumgarner and trade him convinced to accept the trade and trade him for packages indecent prospects that can always accelerate things because then in any trade, you're typically getting at least one prospect who's kind of close to the big leagues closer to the big leagues. Then the players you just rafted this week. So that's the one variable, maybe this is more on that three year range than the fortify year range, because they can convert some on the major league roster into more prospect, healthy if they're just trying to do this through the draft at your international science, which they spent a lot of money last year seem to add a lot of talent at they're just doing student drafted. It's gonna take you more four years or, or even. Beyond because that's how long it takes noth- nothing against the giants. It's just a long process to take so long specially high school talent to get to the big links and they can
