Nco batista of cuba one perron of tina and francisco franco of spain. In postcolonial latin america struggling nascent countries came under the grip of military strongmen. Meanwhile in spain a civil war led to three decades of authoritarianism. Today we'll kick off this deep dive with full hence yo battista an ambitious young man from a poor family but teesta worked his way up through the turmoil of early twentieth century cuba to become a reform minded leader but when his power started to wane batista decided to hold onto it by whatever means necessary next week will chronicle batista's seven years as a dictator in which he became as corrupt and violent is the politicians. He'd once overthrown that corruption fueled the cuban revolution that would ultimately lead to batista's end. All of that is coming up. Stay with us. By the end of the twentieth century. Fidel castro had become the most famous cuban dictator. his name was synonymous with repression. In the caribbean island nation but castro was only the latest in a string of cuban autocrats and the man castro overthrew was similarly brutal especially when it came to silencing dissidents. His name was full. Nco but sta an opportunist driven by a desire to klein. Cuba's socio socioeconomic ladder but teesta king to power amid years of violent turmoil popular support by promising to improve the lives of ordinary cubans and stand up to powers in doing so. He was following in the footsteps of every leader. Since cuba's war of independence the war of independence had been corrupt from the start. Cuban freedom fighters had risen up against their spanish colonizers in the eighteen ninety s on the verge of victory the united states unexpectedly decided to enter the fray supposedly to help the courageous cubans. Of course the us had. It's own agenda the. Us had long been trying to buy cuba from spain. Wants the freedom fighters defeated spain. In the summer of eighteen. Ninety eight the us began. Its occupation of cuba. The us implemented their own military government. American business took over cuba's major industries and all but turned the island nation into another colony. It wasn't until nineteen zero two that the us military finally left cuba but sovereignty came at a cost. The americans only agreed to leave if the cuban constitution included the platinum and -ment a provision. That allowed the us to interfere in cuban economic affairs and international relations. Cuba may have gained its independence but the country's fate was now inextricably tied to its powerful northern neighbour and the effects of american could be felt everywhere even in the rural orientate province. Five hundred miles east of havana. Orientate had always been a poor region. The local freedom fighters had hoped to build a better life for themselves after ousting their spanish colonizers but instead wealthy american tycoons immediately stepped into fill the industrial vacuum american companies took over sugar and banana plantations improved railroads across the island and controlled shipping lines. The us own united fruit company quickly became one of the province's largest employers united fruit built out the region's impoverished towns. So the foreign businessmen could live a life of luxury. Meanwhile the workers in the sugar cane fields were poorer than they'd ever been once again. The cubans were second class citizens in their own country One of those second-class citizens was reuben full. Nco batista zaldivar cuba's future leader born in nineteen. Oh one in the rural town of bunnies but teesta was never satisfied with his impoverished surroundings. When he was eight years old he was forced to drop out of school to join his father. In the sugarcane fields let he never lost his yearning to learn two years later but he still convinced his parents to let him take night classes at a quaker school in the wealthier part of town while there he saw for the first time the kind of abundant resources available to the elite batista knew immediately that he preferred this life to the one his father had he finally got the opportunity to escape by a few years later though not in the way he'd hoped teast as mother died unexpectedly and the family needed more money than the cane. Fields could provide so the fifteen year. Old batista set off around cuba on his own looking for work. The next five years batista worked odd jobs across the country from fruit plantations to railroads. He witnessed a number of violent strikes at major american corporations. And although he sympathized with the workers batista his head down and avoided getting involved instead. Batista focused on himself and his goal to pull himself out of poverty. He read every book and newspaper. He could get his hands on and save what little money he had to make sure he could dressed like a more affluent man. Batista's luck finally changed when he heard about a job opening as a brakeman on a major railroad when he had no luck applying through the normal channels. The eighteen year old decided he had nothing left to lose so he showed up at the executives house one day and asked for the job. The executive was impressed with the young man's ambition but he still seemed smart and educated and the executive was happy to go to bat for him but teesta had learned that the best way to get something was to take action a lesson. He wouldn't forget after some years on the railroad batista was ready for more so in april. Nineteen twenty one. The twenty year old joined the cuban army and went to havana. Batista didn't want a career in the military. He thought a more lucrative choice was to become a lawyer. The army was a means to an end. They covered his food and lodging while he continued his education but havana was unlike anywhere else. But teesta had ever been. He fell in love with the cinemas and concert halls in bookstores. A cultural scene. He'd never encountered in his rural town. More importantly though by teesta saw how segregation and corruption was even worse in the city then back home wealthy cubans north americans and europeans had built themselves opulent new neighborhoods and walled off their decadent villas from the masses. The army wasn't any better enlisted. Men like batista were barely allowed to be in the same rooms as officers who are usually from middle or upper class families. The officers intentionally humiliated their subordinates. By delaying or never paying their stipends and forcing them to wear old uniforms batista's resentment at he and his fellow enlisted. Men were treated prompted him to change his career plans after he decided to not reenlist in the army after his two year recruitment expired batista began training as a stenographer by the time he was twenty four. He became the secretary to an important kernel a year later. He was promoted to corporal stenographer two years after that he was promoted again to sergeant stenographer a significant position for an enlisted soldier but while things were going well for batista cuba was devolving into turmoil. In nineteen twenty. Four general geraldo machado. A veteran of the war of independence was elected president on a reformist platform. He promised to clean up the government promote cuban industry and most importantly kicked the united states out of cuban affairs but as soon as he came to power machado became just as corrupt as his predecessors. He took out massive loans from us banks. He bought off the military and built a secret police that would literally feed his political opponents to the sharks in the waters around havana by nineteen. Twenty eight machado had eliminated enough of the opposition to change the constitution in order to extend his term limit to a full ten years but then cubans decided to fight back during this time the opposition began organizing into resistance groups and plotting a revolt to overthrow machado. The plan was to land invading force on the island's eastern edge sweep across the island and depose the president. The rebellion planned for august of nineteen thirty. One never happened upon learning about the opposition's plot the machado government arrested two thousand of the movement's leaders before they could carry anything out instead of ending descent though the move only prompted machado's opponents to get smarter from students to workers to members of the military and political elite secret societies sprung up everywhere to organize the opposition sergeant fu. Nco batista initially tried to stay as neutral as possible. He'd always believed that his own advancement had to be his first priority and deposing dangerous dictator seemed likely to set him back but as the opposition grew batista realized that it might harm his future if people thought he was four machado he quietly started to cultivate relationships with the opposition groups and he realized there might be more for him in the political upheaval. Then he thought. In early nineteen thirty-one batista received news that his father was very sick. He immediately went to his superior. Lieutenant rufino blanco to ask for leave to go visit his family but the lieutenant to was probably scornful of working class enlisted. Soldiers wouldn't allow him to leave for nearly another month by the time batista reached his hometown. His father had already died battista. Sto was livid as frustrated as he'd been with the rigid hierarchy of the military. He'd always figured he could grit his teeth and get to the top on his own but now he could no longer stand being treated like a second class citizen. Perhaps his grievance would have stopped there if batista hadn't been surrounded by political turmoil and violence instead for the first time. Batista wondered if perhaps the military didn't have to be this way he had no interest in politics or overthrowing the government but he saw an opportunity to change the military from within that year. Batista joined influential secret society known as the abc. The courts dog refer for some of the political trials. He began to quietly pass information to secret radio. Stations that opposed machado and his government. He even offered advice to some of the defense attorneys but teesta was determined to do whatever it took to shake up cuba's corrupt and unfair system. Little did he realize that by joining abc. He was charting of course toward leadership. And in just a few short years. The no name sergeant would become the most powerful man in cuba coming up that teesta becomes a revolutionary listeners.

Now back to the story in the early nineteen thirties. Cuba was in chaos opposition to dictator. Geraldo machado resulted in violent crackdowns. But the more reactionary machado became the more cubans turned against him including young sergeant full. Nco batista the thirty year. Old batista joined a political opposition group known as the abc in nineteen thirty-one but batista didn't consider himself particularly political. His primary interest was his own advancement within the military and he saw an opportunity in the midst of the political and social revolution by nineteen. Thirty three the situation reached a breaking point. Labor strikes broke out on mass paralysing. The country's economy with american corporations suffering as a result newly elected us president. Franklin d roosevelt decided to send ambassador sumner welles to cuba to negotiate an end to the tensions cuba's neocolonial relationship with united states set the stage for a showdown between the us economic power and their political power with the platt amendment. The us could essentially control cuba. If it wanted to the us with american business interests hurting machado. Assume that wells was there to force him out. He figured his only chance at survival was to go in swinging and immediately began talking terms for his resignation but as negotiations dragged on. The opposition sensed machado's weakness. They grew bolder and more violent in their attacks recognizing that it was no longer safe for him in cuba. Machado fled the country. The moment he left militant groups attacked his supporters murdering hundreds of them the next day carlos. Manuel they suspicious. Who was all but handpicked by ambassador. Wells was sworn in as president but machado's didn't satisfy the opposition groups. One of their primary problems was how the ex-dictator had only given more of the country's resources and economy over to the united states and cesspit is wasn't about to kick the americans out additionally many of the political and military leaders who had supported machado were still in positions of power machado. Himself may have been gone but his regime was still the same for the thirty. Two old batista. The military officers were the most offensive of all but he still wanted more opportunities for noncommissioned officers and soldiers like himself which felt all but impossible. When the same classes leaders remained in charge. Batista's breaking point came only a week after machado left cuba. A funeral was held for several enlisted sergeants who had been tortured and murdered by machado's goons earlier in the year but rather than treating them as martyrs. The military elite were dismissive and declined to attend the ceremony. Due batista this was representative of the problem. The officers still didn't respect the enlisted men. Nothing was going to change. That teesta jumped up in front of the crowd of mourners and railed against the top brass proclaiming that the military needed to be purged of machado supporters. If the government had had a revolution the military needed one to this was exactly what his fellow enlisted soldiers needed to hear galvanize they cheered him on urging him to lead the charge but the funeral was a public event and soldiers weren't the only ones listening a civilian revolutionary and journalist named ceo carbo a member of an opposition group known as the student directory also heard batista's speech and he saw an opportunity if he could convince batista and his men to join forces with the student directory. Then they'd have both political clout and military strength at first batista was resistant. He and his fellow sergeants just wanted to restructure the officer corps in the military. They weren't political. let's slowly he developed a relationship with carbo and the student directory by teesta made it clear though that he wasn't interested in an all out revolution however a few weeks later words spread that other political figures were planning to take over the government fearing once again that nothing would change in the military batista and the sergeants decided that their best bet was to take control before. S was overthrown. They needed to act fast on september fourth. Nineteen thirty three sergeants across the country. Turn their guns. On their superior officers and took control of their units. Most officers were to surprised to even try to fight back. Batista and his deputies assured the officers that they would regain their positions once. The negotiations had concluded. No shots were fired in a matter of hours but teesta and his comrades had control of the entire cuban military sarajeo carbo saw his opening. He pointed out that batista didn't have enough leverage yet to get what he wanted. The moment he reached an agreement and returned control to the officers he surely be executed his only chance at successfully reforming the military was to take over the government looking the situation but teesta realized carbo was right by midnight but teesta was in meetings with the student directory planning a full-fledged coup carbo drafted their revolutionary proclamation which declared the creation of the pen turkey an executive commission of five men who would rule the country unsurprisingly batista was picked as one of these five men and on their declaration he was described as the sergeant and revolutionary leader of all the armed forces of the republic clearly as long as the new government gave batista and his comrades the reforms they wanted he was happy the next day. President cesspit is resigned. The moment he saw that the insurgents have the power of the enlisted soldiers behind them. He knew his time in office was over but the political games weren't over. The elephant in the room was of course the united states. Batista met with american ambassador. Sumner welles hoping to get his support for their new government. Run wells realized that there was no way to return cesspit as to power but he made it clear to batista that he wouldn't recognize their new government in wells is the pen. Turkey was too far left and to oppose to the us. If this new government went ahead they would do so without the legitimacy of us backing but teesta quickly saw that. If he wanted to maintain his position he would have to separate himself from the pen turkey and the student directory in the weeks. After the sergeants revolt their provisional government struggled with infighting through all of the pen turkeys problems batista tried to stay out of it. He was only there for military reform and he got what he wanted. Before long batista and many of his friends had been promoted to the rank of colonel and most of the old officers had been pushed out for good in a matter of weeks. Batista had gone from unknown sergeant. To influential officer he was thriving while the rest of the new government was falling into chaos. Mass violence continued for months after the revolt. It became obvious that the penske key was incapable of maintaining control. The pen turkey ended up only lasting five days until the student directory appointed professor ramon grouse and martine as the provisional president. He was sworn in at twelve pm on september tenth. Nineteen thirty three but growls government would only last four months during this time. Batista made a point of continuing to separate himself from the politicians insisting that he and the military only wanted to support the will of the people in doing so. He projected himself as the only leader on the island with real power. The americans were noticing. The young man's rapid ascent to at the end of nineteen thirty three jefferson. Kathy ris replaced sumner welles as ambassador cavalry immediately approached batista and made it clear that the us was willing to support him and recognize whatever government he thought. The cuban people would accept as legitimate but teesta could no longer pretend he knew nothing of politics. The us continued to recognize the grou- government and had all but dubbed batista a kingmaker in january nineteen thirty four but he convened a commission of civilian and military leaders to choose a new provisional president so that grou- could be removed of course the commission ultimately landed on batista's preferred candidate carlos mendieta monta for an aging of the war of independence. But everyone even mendieta knew that the man behind the throne was full. Nco at easter. In a matter of months batista had gone from being nobody in the cuban army to the most powerful man in the country now that he was climbing the social and political ladder. He wasn't going to let anything or anyone stand in his way coming up but teesta cements his power and transforms cuba now back to the story in january nineteen thirty four colonel fool. Nco sta the defacto. Head of the cuban military was able to handpick the country's next president and with batista pulling the strings the first thing the new president carlos mendieta did was negotiate the removal of the platinum for over thirty years. The platt amendment had allowed the us to interfere in cuban affairs. Removing it was a popular idea and it won the mandate to government a measure of support among cubans. Of course the end of the platt amendment. Didn't mean the. Us was no longer involved in cuban politics. In fact behind the scenes ambassador jefferson. Cafes influence was as strong as ever but teesta wasn't naive enough to actually tried to kick the americans out to stay at the top he would need. Us support but the labor movements led by the growing communist party and the recently deposed president grau weren't happy that the new government was making new economic deals with the united states flat amendment or not they were still under the grip of american imperialism in response labor leaders carried out assassination attempts on batista president mendieta and other officials and falling into the trap of many military leaders before him. But teesta let the army and police loose on the dissidents instead of bringing them into line this only exacerbated the country's instability sensing that the government was struggling the labor leaders began to encourage strikes across the island in march of nineteen thirty five. A general strike was called grinding the entire economy to a halt and hurting american interests. Batista had to prove to the americans that he could control his country. He sent in the military and issued a statement saying that anyone who didn't return to their jobs would lose them within days. People return to work but batista wasn't about to forgive and forget he had to make it clear that another strike would never work many strikers in public sector. Jobs were fired as soon as they return. The mask was off. All of cuba now knew that batista was really in charge. Humiliated and powerless. Mendieta resigned in december. One thousand nine hundred thirty five thus in early nineteen thirty six but teesta set up the country's first election in nearly a decade the whole thing was rigged with every politician handpicked by batista and yet even though the cuban people knew this it was still an election. It was at least a start after the elections batista decided. It was time to remake his image. He wanted to show the people that he could be more than a military man. Someday he could be a president himself so before the new government was sworn in batista took advantage of the power vacuum to implement new deal style social welfare reforms. He wanted not just to stabilize cuba. But to finally resolve some of the inequalities that he had faced throughout his own life the plan involved opening new schools in rural communities run by highly skilled and well educated military recruits batista also expanded medical services across the country and created a centralized public health service. By the time the new government was sworn in these popular reforms. Were already in the works. The new puppet president had no choice but to go along with them but teesta had shown the country that he could enact policy but he's still needed the people to like him so he started touring cuba. He traded in his military uniform for a normal civilian suit and visited tiny towns to give speeches and shake hands for once he didn't have to shy away from his impoverished background instead. He used it to connect with the masses and explain why he cared about reform but despite the humble image he was cultivating. Batista was no longer a poor boy. Working in the sugar cane fields. Thanks to his dealings with both the us and cuban big business. He was now one of the elite even with his popularity among the people when batista started to consider a presidential run in one thousand nine thirty eight his allies in the us in sold world war two was on the horizon. Fascist leaders were wreaking havoc in germany and italy to the american public. Cuba already looked a bit too much. Like a military dictatorship batista argued that he wasn't a fascist but deep down he knew the only way to end. America's fears was to let the people vote without pulling the strings feeling confident in his popularity but teesta called a constitutional convention in nineteen thirty eight. He also legalized the increasingly popular communist party. Hoping the move would win him. Their support by the time batista announced his campaign for president. There was only one last loose end to tie up. He had to leave the military thanks to the new constitution. He could no longer be an officer if he wanted to be a politician. So batista resigned from the military at the end of nineteen thirty nine. Despite the efforts of his opponents batista won the election in a landslide. he may have been the man behind the man for years but he was finally officially cuba's head of state. His presidential term from nineteen forty to nineteen forty. Four was mostly the same as the previous years had been. He continued the social reforms. He already started he even included some pro union policies. The biggest difference was that batista no longer felt the need to keep his relationship with the us out of the spotlight. The cuban people knew who he was. They voted for his ideas and his idea was to strengthen the ties with the us as part of that plan during world war. Two cuba entered the war on the side of the allies to pay for the war. Effort batista imposed new taxes. But at the same time batista was making new. Trade deals that greatly favoured american business. That's where things backfired to cubans. It was almost like batista was more interested in helping the us than he was in helping cuba by nineteen forty four. The people were making it clear that they were tired of batista's brand of corporatist populism man who had once been an upstart revolutionary was now an intractable part of the political establishment in the next election. Batista's handpicked successor. Lost to his old ally turned rival. Ramon grau but teesta saw the writing on the wall. He decided to quit while he was ahead and move his family to florida in daytona beach. Batista finally got to relax and live the highlife. All the money he'd made from working with the us and the last decade bought him a spot. In american high society he met movie stars in dignitaries and mobsters like lucky luciano and meyer lansky. Many of them were men like him. Who'd worked their way up in a system that tried to keep them down but try as he might. Batista couldn't get his mind off of cuba. He missed the adoration the power he needed to be back in the game. So while still in florida batista formed a new cuban political party and announced that he was running for senate. He ran his entire campaign from the us and amazingly he won when batista returned to cuba he felt rejuvenated and ready to take his country into the new post war world after he assumed his new office in nineteen forty nine. He declared his candidacy for the next presidential election. Still a couple of years away. But but t stood didn't understand that cuba had continued to grow without him. The nascent democracy was inching its way forward but teesta symbolized the turmoil and dictatorships of the past as the nineteen fifty. Two presidential election approached but teesta was horrified to discover that he was coming in third in the polls surely he told himself his opponents. Were rigging the vote after all he had seen firsthand. How widespread graft and corruption were in the cuban government. Worse though was the thought of being humiliated in an electoral loss if he lost now fall all the way back down to the bottom of the social ladder. The teesta couldn't let that happen so in the spring of nineteen fifty two. He got in touch with his friends in the military he had a plan they were going to stage a coup.

And I just kept my head low. Cool. Cool down man. It's cool. Now. That's the incident you here for that. It's not exaggerating. Oh. And still didn't get it. Yeah.

But all these bad ass weapon shirt, mega debt in national debt, and they beat. I've just been I sat there for like like you said on our trying to do the night. They had me. I had me they had me doing stupid things like I was I was actually I was outside of the area. I was supposed to be fighting. Oh. There was one part of the game, I still at this for five minutes to shake. We're gonna do. No, that's the thing man. Dad is one of the hardest boss battles in the game that one one, you haven't even encountered. But no, you have to have the best weapons boss. We gotta go on expeditions in this game, which is where you get a lot of upgrade components for four stronger weapons and things. More currency, upgrade your base. But yeah, you just have to hit him in the head like anywhere else. It does like no damage, like, are you ears RPG's, which is great like in the game taking vehicles? There's no vehicles in the section, it does nothing to though. It does not that I was coming to the big ask gun big wide as mouth and everything issues. Cannonballs at this chicks ended this, this bitch blew up. Oh, yeah. She standing with just a smidge of, of health sixty damage, goddamn, fucking kidding me. Yes. Seven hundred okay.

It's still. I mean, good at taking out people with, with stealth weapons and then is what I like to do. I like to leave. I leave one person in like in the game you have basis threat, you got that you have to take out. And sometimes I go in re up the basis, they, you know, they call scavenged, which means that the basis get hard. They bring it hard enemies. I've been doing that throughout the game. And I liked it like just go around the base, and take everybody out and slowly stock that last. And something Stockton, because I could take them out at the beginning about stock them into they can't see me coming, of course. I can kiss I can pull this like the predator. His friends are dead doesn't what's going on. Snoring. Speak predator. Got it got it. Yeah. You got it. Yeah. Noory, just sleep. Yeah, man. So let me see you wanna get into. I think we're missing here. We covered everything. Maybe that doom story. Talked about. Oh, that's right. That's right. Oh, that's right. We also have a story speaking doom. Let people love that game going to be getting some more, the back story about that in a certain form from certain people that you kinda trust to do it. We'll tell you about that nece in the show later. But right now, let's go ahead in what talk about this trailer. Yes. All right. Everybody. By now. You pretty much of societas the worst stupid with Shaw in Hobbs Hobbes in Shaw and Lynn. And also, you got eaters in there. Lexie, all I'm looking at. Yeah. We some dumb shit what you gonna do about it. Yeah. This is dumb, but you got to say what are you going to do about date? I don't wanna say that. Love in man, y'all be stupid all day, all you want to y'all. Make stupid look good right now stupid beat my ass. Yeah, we'll Stukeley beat the shit out of you. May you look even make you look stupid. We pave looking stupid. What you guys. And they just hit us what another trailer today. The final trailer the old the final trailer which is really not so you any much more than what we've had before actually maybe few scenes may maybe maybe lend, you know, they I like the way they present these trailers now like, music, videos, fast and furious presents thought Drake was gonna come out driving a car or something. But with these trailers now they, they have said that. Yeah, look is fast and furious presents. But it's not is this a spin off? This is not the same thing. But people keep saying, yeah, but those two words I in their fast and furious. And as far as we're concerned laws you're gonna keep throwing those out. We feel like yes, this is this is stupidly grand right here. This is this is this is stupid -ly amazing. I'm people all Ford people, you know, they're saying you got my money. Now, I'm not look, I get it this a number explosions is a number of action in a number shit tongue. I'm cool with that. But if you're going to throw those words, fast and furious. In there, you still we feel are forgetting where you came from this series has gone. Little bit, y'all. Got you, you know you so big. Now, you kind of disrespect in your routes a little bit. Now. Well, you know, y'all all about climbing buildings are all about running out of fire y'all out, but you're all about God dead. You fight super villains now. Yes. Working up to that. But working today, and we should we don't go to space aliens, and get dinosaurs and all that kind of stuff, and they're going to be riding transforms. But before we do that. Can we forget that this all came from the cars? That's right, man. You used to be all about the cost, right? Stealing DVD's. Adidi selling Boulet DVD's at that truck and some people saying what, what, what this now you know what? It's too late. We can't go back fully to what we used to be. No. Those times are done, but we can give them not to that. And it seems like that's what they're doing instead of just a quick cut that they had in the last trailer, this, when they say, you know what you wanted cars you wanna chases that's not going to be the whole movie like you want would be on that now with big in the net now, but you'll get a little bit of that in this new trailer for fast and furious presents. He his knees cave themselves torso himself on the ground. His kneecaps will be sticking through his job. No. He's just on his knee. He was. Splinter plate glass window. We what can we see this, this motherfucker landed on his feet through played glass window, I'm sorry to take you back way to start the trailer. But God, dammit. We're all going now. You I said plantar shoot them right there. He was his. Stuck his under so big. Now he can't even probably get off as a whole. Hurts. Golly. What? Not think. Shit. That's my one. Dumb thing. Stuck up your ass. We're all going. You might to just. Do. Do you see four graboy? Yeah. You want to. Reintroduce myself Monday. Ms. Two of them two billion dollars from us. Three of us that much to them. Big names of people will die your sisters of office, bad. Capable women I've ever encountered. Girl. I see we do you think of course, I think you're stupid. Until I do this movie. Are you witness Bill? The yes, stupid fucking stupid. We're gonna need cars and God's can handle that. I'm sorry to bring this year. You'll whom. Cool. Glenna, get one south more as we'll be. Like superman. Gums of keeps off. This is no good. We're going. What one of my mother? Allow me to reintroduce myself money. Did he just explode? He's, he's, he's freefall helicopter. And the did he just turned into the title of this. Busted muscle. All they can. Built-up head to. I don't know. We mentioned this before, but. This seems like a really dumb idea to like them. Like, okay. Not just because it's the fast and furious turning into a comic because bed net for a while. But, I mean, the fact that they say that they are fighting a super villain, we might have said this before, because, you know, I'm looking at him in good thing they finally caught the bus in town that knows riding they kill anybody, like we're taking a lot of just hit just endless body. To do just going to work much of suits with no hair. Yeah. Man. You know. Looking at what they do here talking about eaters Elba, superhuman the fucking all superhuman. They are do this shit. They all do that, because that's why I'm at this. I'm like, first I was saying, well, you know what that wasn't as crazy as the last trailer? But no is even Moiseyev because they're like going through stuff buildings and plate glass, windows and cars and vehicles. Metal steel solid steel at food drop twenty stories with his feet. Fuck this. Well, you see a handle on glass before hit the ground. He should be bleeding this. Right. All his intestines sticking out. Yeah. Everything else is face should be going. Oh, yeah. Because I looked at the last trailer up, and I thought they can get crazy last trail. That's one that we saw we pretty much. Cata fucking helicopter carrying this shit like like a kid flying a balloon. He was a captain America holding onto the hill of his arms yet there, it is right there. Moment hold the fucking bloom Calcutta like the goddamn tight. Like a kid with a new blue rip him into. Have expecting case a motive drop by. Of the Samoan family were they gonna what's he gonna do it? You go crazy. I can dig it. I can dig it crazy than me. Yeah, man, yeah. The moment is full held a helicopter like a goddamn kid with a balloon right now. Get the fuck outta here with that. And I as you can get it can get any crazier than net. And they may did minute. Yeah. I like the way even the movie like, like we saw the trailer rate, the stupid, they spend the whole time, but who's dumber than the other? Fucking dumb. Classic comedy. I will say, like because you, you keep bringing up the hero kind of thing even the score they're doing that. Like slow piano can like vendors done. Oh, they they're, they're pulling that in this trip. They're trying to have that be the theme for Hobbs and she'll hear theme taken from right? Is that the fast and furious franchise. I'm not so familiar with it that I can recognize the theme. No, what that's taken from before people start talking about you. You don't know. None, Chris, I don't know, because Chris, we'll tell you, he's on no music. No, I don't I actually had to tell him what music is the other day like the concept of music, didn't even know. Like as a beaten, where's repeat silence to me? But yeah, that is that's a Jay z song. You want to. Meet reintroduce myself. My name is. Yeah. His reputation just thing. Before the hell they had it like goes on the piano. No, they did. They did they changed the song. I felt like they're trying to social that with them. And but even if look even if it's a sawn that they've already taken it from a pre pre existing song. Yes. Similar to what they've done with. That's a good point. What they've done with the structure of the trailer playing the piano sound to introduce things man. Yeah. You're totally right. And that's a great observation right there. You know. No issue really be surprised about these two doing this crazy stuff. I mean, the this I think this is the reason why people are cool with this series now going as nuts as it is. And these two guys right here, especially taking this to a whole new insane level. See what you do is to get people to accept this. You bring in people who have been doing crazy shit jour- already. I mean this trailers, taint compat- compared to what they did before. I mean you had the rock fighting a flying. You know you buy little late drag. With music. What do do the children? But. Jason stay Jason Statham was he was fighting the T Rex of sharks, the MAG rate here. You know. So you look at this, this was shit. They were already fighting crazy things in the first place. It would doing crazy things. People even say I was expecting a cameo in Godzilla. Brought more care to and I think those other. Oh, shit deroga-. He's like, I'm. That you can bring up there. Also, the most over exaggerate carriage in the franchise look, even the rocks reducing five. Like he's just he's the guy has take on the entire team by himself when you first see, yes, when he's at his biggest, I think, and Jason state, he's like they said him up as the big bad for, for seven where his introduction takes a whole hospital and security team in you see the aftermath of like we're setting these guys up to be larger than life of villains, and heroes. And so feels natural that their movie would be the most over the top one. And that's what I think people are buying into it. And why a lot of people, I think are excited for it's already been setup. Yeah. You know, these guys have been set up in their own films as larger than life. They now they've been set up as larger than life in this trailer, right here. So when you finally see them just going through here in in. As we. When I mean, listen, nobody. After you see the ruck fight of not just a wolf, but a flying giant wolf after you see some shit. Like then you don't question about him running twenty stories down a building without breaking his legs. That's every day for hill worker, should that's him just trying to catch the bus on time, you know, down from so. Yeah. So, like, when we'll make we'll make jokes but, you know that's they kinda they established. They've done a great job at building up a world of physics, as close to nine exist in fixed. Don't matter in this world. Yes. And so that is what people are accepting more than the movie itself. I Meyer that they've figured out how to structure this in a way to where you do, except from again, we're talking about a period was, we'll say this. You know, we, we mentioned this before it bears repeating and it bears looking at again to see the roots of this series. This is yours. But if you win you get her to. You know, now, as you can see they were doing. I mean, they had grappling hooks should. Cooling there. They'd so here they, they were already doing kind of crazy things that one, but one of the great things about fast and furious is that they still manage to keep those crazy things kind of grounded harpoons, you can get that WalMart. So that's not being you. Build. Yeah. Yeah. You know, they weren't doing the kind of crazy stunts, while the, the stunt in the cars themselves, were, you know, on a level that was only for movies miss fantasy. Yeah, it was fantasy and they were doing stuff with cars that were fantasy. They weren't doing crazy stunts like this. They were crashing through, you know, objects that would kill them human bodies going through. Yeah. Yeah. But, you know, say what you will about this series. They have, and I haven't seen the movie. So I can't say anything about the film, but they have actually is a good lesson to be learned here about how to carry on your film, to completely other genre out people sit up talking about what the fuck. Yeah. Then nobody's, that's the most amazing thing to me. Nobody's questioned anything about this and they had the foresight to kind of focus it on probably two of the most popular characters from those films, so far, certainly to actors who genuinely like each other, because that's the big thing that people don't know, like behind the scenes stuff, like there's a lot of tension of allow those actors for those facet fears then diesel in the rock do not get along. There was all day. No. There they had, like a whole feud going into, like eight and everything like that. And then I know Tyree says, also very upset that they did this in the first place they say that they're good now. Okay, because it's there. Yeah. 'cause y'all remember like Nate tired. I was crying. Yeah. They, they no. They, they, they said that they would go up and doing that Tyree says, you know putting a crowd in his tweets. Why are you breaking up the family? Like Iraq is like men. We take this family. She had a little too, literally. Yeah. I mean, we franchise is making movies. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Making money, the Ragas lakes. I'm getting paid man. Yeah. I was never you'll brother. We ain't never been any your family reunions, but it's very bizarre that you fucking mind but I always got the sense in everything that the rock and Jason Statham shared on social media. They genuinely like each other. And I think that comes across in the marketing people responded that people like to hear that two actors who work for each other and movies, generally having, like a great chemistry and they're actually friends. Safeway people like VIN diesel Paul Walker. And how relationship was yeah. I think that's why people are, that's one of the reasons why people are excited for this. Well, it doesn't help that, that all that drama was going on, because it was hard to tell which, which which one of those things was really when it wasn't sure I mean, because somebody exaggerating, it was exaggerated because they will rock was as a really me. Get him and bin diesel. They. Yeah. They were having it out openly saying, like India was unprofessional and everything. That's the one I kind of believe because he was messing with the he's messing with tyreek hirees quick crime. But yeah, he's would he he put out something about bin diesels saying that, you know, I I'm on the set all the time right on time because I am a professional, you know, VIN diesel apparently was. Racially allegedly. Yeah. Leisurely bringing some petty shit to, to the situation point being is that. I think when you have all this discussion about all these actors not liking each other. And then you hear about two guys genuinely do like each other people kinda roofing in, like in the would leave all this shit. Just go do your own thing. And I think that's why because in case the fast and furious franchise implodes. You can't get these guys back together because of whatever this petty stuff might be. Then you spin off in, in created basically green vision to something else, which is, what would I think, Hobbs and Shah is going to be I'll all the like this has been a big thing in the summer like a lot of the sequels and remakes. The summer have failed by get the sense. This is going to be one of the, the big success stories. It was. All right. Track in great man. Sorry, trek and very well. And the, the hype is strong with this. And this is the one that has, I think the least pretensions about what it is. I look, I'm gonna tell them not crazy about this series. And I'll explain why in a little bit. But there are some movies out there this summer where they've kind of, you know they what they've done is they've had some pretenses about, you know how big the. Movie will be such as Godzilla they, they kinda gone in and just regurgitate it, same thing with people that are not as strong in those positions, which is men in black shirt relied on his stallion on the air anymore. Yeah. This one is just kind of like little don't take to people that you like engine blew up a bunch of shit. Yep. That's you know what you're getting in here. And they have a sense of humor about two which comes yes, and all the marketing great marketing. I'll tell you what. That's the biggest thing too, is that. All these other movies had characters that you didn't care about our characters that are side characters human characters that were printed, much non characters. Like, like I hate to keep bringing these two guys Ella was one where those, those human characters. Oh, they all I'm sorry, Godzilla ain't got. No personality. I love as much as anybody else. But that motherfucker ain't got I dated sitting room have a conversation with him. He'd be the most more f I in the world. He's stopped burning up shit and just talk to me, the only interaction she has of humans they all explode or they die later. Yeah, there's no character in, in that character. No personnel in that character. Again, men in black with something where we didn't care about franchise anymore about the franchise and these two people that you got here. I'm sorry. Not that big of a draw to where they can take over a whole of the movie. Yeah. The only other thing we have seen them in previously with the Ragnar which they were great in. That's none Nuff. No, it's not enough. And you didn't do anything with them when you had it. This trailer. This trailer did a great job at setting up the chemistry with these two guys. I mean, you know, we were sitting up here, and we were we, you know, we're laughing a laughing at the at the jokes that they're giving that the throwing at each other. You know, all these little bit the little bit of shit talking in the in the cut downs that they halfway other. Oh shit. You could hear it coming across in their faces man like that day when we didn't have the sound on. Yeah. Exactly. We know what they're saying in our hearts. Capable women I've ever encountered. Kinda girl. I see we doing we think, stooping, of course, I think you're stupid. Some reason kills natural. You know, that is something like two two two eight year-olds would do. Yeah, I think over laughing. Two guys are larger than life action stars. And yeah, they're talking like toddlers or like middle school is. Yeah, exactly. That's funny. No, we're already laughing at them, we already amused by them. And, you know, something I again, I come in the trailer for listening to people, and they already headed in the movies, so it's not like they, they weren't going in, and trying to trying to forget about where they came from our to alienate, the, you know, people who have been with the franchise forever. You know what we were talking about. And I even saw comments from people saying man, what about the cars in this, and, you know, they gave you open up with a huge car-chase, you know, which I believe, hearkens back to a lot of the stuff that they would do the best franchise granite with, you know, stupid stunts in here. The motorcycle ones if that is actually something they would do in the regional yes series. Yeah. You know, I. I like I said, I'm not the biggest fan of these and I'll tell you why. Because. There. This franchise is, is like movies movie sauce, man. You hear me when I when I mean by that is that, you know, when you what do you do? When you food is bland, who puts us put sauce on. Whatever content you have yet to just make it better. That is that of what the doing here is like, you know, to cover up the fact that there's no real movie here at heart. Barry Lane story. What do they do? They, they put on more sauce. More sauce in the in the form of explosions women, you know, action stars, you know, they just because there's really nothing there when you pull this bag man, you all know does. Like they Aken this story up as they go along those movie sauce. Yeah. No. I agree. If you like I imagine this film has had has no depth by. It's relying on just the personality. It's trying to come across whether it be through the stars. They have or the action sequences or the, you know, the women. Yeah, yeah, totally makes sense. Yeah. And, you know, and but I'll tell you if I if I'm not crazy about the, the move. I will if I'm not crazy about a franchise our series. I will always give the latest move haven't seen the benefit of the Denver. You know, even if it looks bad at all I will always put in a little caveat of I have not seen the Phil this is going to be about not going into hating, not going into Hedo open mind cause you don't because you don't because you never know surprising. Exactly unlike day by t's fucked that. I'll tell you right now. That's trash. Yeah, David Teesta he see what big news. Do they can talk tragically? Nobody's gonna say shit back to them. And if they do they can put up a good fighting. Yeah. Physical big news talking trash. They did it with fast and furious Tarif to ship. But, you know small. Yeah, he's a little too small. But, you know all these big musclebound dues they, they do not hold back. Their words they would tell you because I can bag it up. Fuck your movie in fuck your franchise. He'd says there's an article out there and it's going around in many places, and let me see if I actually find the article maybe I took it down. But you can look it up where somebody asked. But Teesta they said, would you ever consider being a villain and one of the upcoming fast and furious movies? Maybe even Hobson Shafi culture, and he says he said, let me see by can find this. I'll find it for you. Because I have it here somewhere because I wanna make sure I quote this correct. I'll, I'll type it in for you, right? He doesn't mince words, you know, I think Batista, though he probably feels pretty confident with how bag James Gunn initially. So maybe he now he he feels like he can kinda say anything he just talk to every. Manda. What fuck Schindler's List? Some bullshit, this indie wire right here. All right. Indie wire. They have it here. Let me see if there's a tweet right here. Did you see why I love the little Email not has little the emojis, right? He says, thank you for your consideration damage. They, did they not have you're right there. No, it's right there. It's under the ad. David Teesta throw about to vomit emoji. Thank your consideration. Then vomiting yet and embalming the rocket joint seen will get a fast. If you're spinoff, also deportees that will be the villain. And he's like, Nope. No. He's vomiting L, like, wow, not only in my not a fan. I'm disgusted by by your series. It makes me want to throw up. That's interesting. Yeah. Let me see here. Oh, here it is on the paragraph that is from. Yeah, but Teesta castle responded to the idea by writing. Thank you for your consideration, adding to throw emojis. If it wasn't already cleared about Teesta through downtown shade by using the hashtag at rather do good films. Okay. Maybe there's in there. Oh, I missed it right there. Yeah. Rash tag. It was a lot of words, Sal, there was. To spread. Yeah. Wow. Yeah. It is. That's the thing with Batista's. Like, look, he's had a lot of success with the guards of the galaxy movies vendors and things you stand out in those films. He's really, really funny. He's good. But let's not beat around the Bush. He's, he's done some stinkers himself yet. Yeah. You know what I mean? I'll tell you I do like his acting now just going by guardians where he plays Drax you know, he's just giving that character is required to like not show any emotion shirt, and that's part of the job. So, yeah. So you, you, you, you can't judge acting by that. Dude, hung even standing there an hour an hour. Serious master the ability standing so incredibly still. Okay. Read norm motion. I can't judge you by your active from that. But I, I have seen him do some impressive things I was really impressed with what he did. And, and he unfairly did not get a whole lot to do in blade runner twenty forty nine but he has a short where they get to show him doing a lot more, and he's actually good active man in so I can see where he's trying to he wants to, you know, he's a guy that first of all a lot of guys, and I'm not saying this about him because he Ingram beat me. But I'm you know you look at these big guys special at their wrestlers thinking, I you know, that's all they do. Just take hits to the head, and maybe they'll be in a fire role in the movie and some, she's trying to fight this whole images just being big dumb wrestler, the big dumb, muscle guy. I think that's what it is. And that's why kinda feels resentful that people would automatically say, oh, you'll be part of the big dumb action franchise. So I see he probably gets it a lot. And that's why you had the reaction that he did. Yeah. I do see where he's coming from. Thank he wants to try everything. He's done drama. Now, he's trying to, you know, he's going out for the straight out comedy with with more motion than drag some might say, sure. Hello operator. We need help. Someone trying to us. Killed. That's stupor man, which actually looks look, by the way, that, that named NATO say whole lot. But this funny stuff in there. That was good. You know what else about to say? Do Brasil like a dumb movie. Even you look at the Tyler. I mean. He's a guy named stew, and he drives Uber. I know. But but I don't know what. Yeah. That's you know, you have to the fact that you have to explain the title says a lot. But you look at the end the trailer like okay, see white, probably chose the project. I get it. Yeah. But you know, he's apparently he's trying to do art. He's yeah. I try to do. Honestly, just watching that reminds me of older film, from the mid two thousand taxis exit. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. It's getting yeah, I could be better taxi, you know, maybe lupus film, right? I'll is it. Yeah. I know I do think is originally, a loop Bassano thing is a French film before he came here. All. So I listen, I know exactly what was coming from, because, like I said, man. Hobbs inside has turned into the movies where it's for people who make those excuses that we hate. Oh man. It's just an action film. Nobody's gonna look if anything deep male just looking for a bunch of explosions. We're looking for the rock and, and Jason stay than the kick ass and crack jokes mental by looking for nobody's looking for real movie. You know. And usually we all winced that then, and we say, man, we hate it when people say that, but for some reason, these movies have earned the right to say that with people. So I'm I'm not as you know, I get it with action everything and the action is cool. I'm not I'm not the biggest I'm not David Teesta, but I'm not the biggest fan of this franchise. But I get it with people. I think this deserves to be given a chance given that the making this sort of an action, buddy comedy more than the other films were. No, I'm gonna give chance like look they've done a good job of the marketing. They have a good sense of humor about it. And that's why it's 'gendering such goodwill. That's why I'll check it out. Yeah. We'll see. We'll see. I mean, sometimes movies, get by just on the chemistry of the actors. And in, in this in this could be right. This. It just I'm just. I'm just I'm trying to be fair just like. Just like if you don't have a Kate, you know, you can't be doing this. Through to. Pause it. She's done. Ain't nobody got. Nobody has has a scratch they felt through glass play class. It's not like somebody got picked up and thrown. They failed twenty stores through Glasgow in not even a band-aid, scratch, man. This look prettier God sweating, though. You sweat. Oh, I'm sorry. Yeah. Drove he broke some he broke us with. Okay. It was in the country. Sweat. Title movie, don't give a fuck. Could like they? The rock. That's how. That's what the poster would've said for this Hobbes's Shaw, don't give a fuck. Oh, all right. Go ahead and get on next thing to jazz, this are they? He was saying they wanna come in the show up. He can Man Mohan cousin. You know. You know what have any, but I wish to hope that binge. We saw. Russell. Did Sony just do it with what is it a universal does this which they've done before? I'm telling you Benjamin show up and see this shit. And they just be like guys you guys have handled. I mean. Got it at the sub week swarm. Sure. Well, we what he swarmed but you just fucking destroyed the swamp. We'll go to subway. Yeah. Let me see. They spider medicate even. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, Ryan's. Right. I know that DreamWorks is making fastened fears cartoon for Netflix with dump torito's younger cousin. They're going on spied venture. So this is like some JAMES BOND junior types. Yeah. So it is going to be more for kids. Yeah. Totally spies. They're kind of saying it's like kinda like totally spies. It'd be it'd be funny, if that cartoon ends up being more realistic than the. We can't go to. Kids can't scare them. One of the cartoon characters like, ow. Actually, in pain, at one point. Rumor is that Kiana REEs is opposed going to be Cam yelling in everything. Not just invested fears is that what people are saying, oh, these going to be doing a cameo fast and furious. Okay. This that'll be the point was like, okay, I'll need to see this. No more to tell his sit down somewhere. Yeah. He's doing too many things you can do too much. You know what I'm saying? Yeah. Kiato brother. I love you, man. I do you like who are you? Why do you love me? Listen fucking Christ. The question. Stop it. Hey, kennel. It's not just one word. I love we love. We do we do mango. Yeah. Fuck it with was love, but. Kiep. He will start to hate this man. That's always comes in waves like always the comparison people love counter right now because he's the hot stuff on the internet. But look what happened. Jennifer Lawrence us go, everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence every interview she gave look how goofy look how down to earth. She is in the now at she made a lot of bad moves, like she made some bad films and people like hater. So be online says this happens all the time guy. So I'm just like all right. Here we go. Not to me, this, I tell you, another case, another example. Matthew mcconaughey ho. Yeah. Kinda, hey did this thing we hit the McConnell science true detective? And then he started making some he started actually made some Mason really good movie, Dallas buyers club Dallas buyers club. Some other ones Bernie roles with Wall Street wolf of Wall Street, but then two things happened with him one the movie started to, to not be very good. And then the over saturation and when you have those two things. Mixed together. A lot of people go. They're going gonna get resentful for some read just just because you're there. Then I was going to, you know if everybody keeps building up calories as the next Jesus Christ, which they are doing right now. He has the look. Yeah. He does he does. He might be. I don't know. That's why he's use this this image. Every movies in, he's saying character, he talks to every movie he's either he he's every movie he is either he's John wick. No matter what he's a John wick, that just doesn't shoot guns and other movies on his time off. He's a scientist to knows anything, is those, John Whitcomb, only ones that are doing well firm in terms of the live action stuff choice, everything else. Seattle. Oh, but that's the thing. We're going to start seeing him more stuff than you better pick. Just good projects because like you said, like, what was it Replicans replicas which bombed if bombed and he was terrible terrible. And he didn't other film with ally, Roth which was like knock knock or so. Good wasn't. And there was another romantic comedy. I heard he was good. And so, you know, that Netflix film that yeah, yeah. He was good. I think carefully. He needs to pick his project. Yes. Because if I guarantee you this, if he doesn't pick something where he's not being lovable cattle. Like we know him now, people are gonna start picking apart his acting. Oh, yeah. And he can't act, but he can't act. He's been some projects where I've seen him do some really great performances. So it's not like he can't act why we get like, why are we count all Reeves in non-active motives, and movies? I don't know. I think is because people just like him so much that did almost just they just let them do. Whatever. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, I've this. Just feel like they just like just do what you do. Can I think that's the problem? He has to go relationship with the directors that he's working with. And so they can, you know speak like, no, we want you do it this way, instead of just having whatever you want. But if he's starts making cameos for the sake of candles, populating canal's going to become a fad fats get back. I think he is right now. Yeah, yeah. Like I said, I hope the best, I want to thanks parent. He's going to be a marvel movie can you've been talking about that? What was it the turtles? Yeah. Turn who knows. He wanted him to be in captain marvel. They want him to be in the what's his name Rolla. Oh yon rag, Jude law's laws ral. Yeah. Yes. So let's see here Bill and Ted three's coming out Stroup. Yes. So again, that's a sequel that people aren't really asking for. Yeah. Some, some people were. But that was long time. That was like twenty years ago. Early nineties. Yeah. So you will go and get to a next thing here. Yeah. See we got this is a quick story before we get into the story about doom. That's coming up, as I said. Now, if you look at the description today, you can relax, if you have fan of, of, of what you call it. Call of duty. But what do you know if you're if you? Okay, so you look at the description on the show today. If you're, if you're if you're fan of split scree. Don't wear you? Find made a misspelling. Russia. Got to put in on screen. So it'd be like the split screen soup, you're gonna get good good. Now, if you're a fan of split screen got some bad, news for at least when it comes to call of duty looks like they're getting rid of no. Yeah. I mean, the half the screen, I always struggle the c I can't I can't have that. Which one I get confused at which what's feudal confused if you like playing games with screens putting the sandwich. I've seen deli meat thick of the man. If you are fan of split-screen. Oh. Doing Britain's Brin sleep. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you. That. So call of duty black ops. Four will not support split screen. So you're gonna be losing that I'm seeing this taking away. Yeah. I've seen this on polygon. Really what they say about as quietly as it was added to the game split. Screen playing call of duty black ops four in their battle yelled blackout mode has been removed players. Notice the features ain't even tell him. Anyone know, just to do sit on the couch. The control. People in. Players notice that the feature was no longer in the game this week following black ops for most reason pets, they ain't no patch. That's rip. Headed content away. I didn't know about this. Yeah. Yeah. No, this is I feel like listen. I know this screen is not very popular anything today, but it's been man. That's a common courtesy to tell somebody. They have to tell people that you have to put out a press release and they get known a video saying that you're taking this away. The reason why you have to explain it to the owned the game even if his life five people doing it. Come on do that. That's what that's I did not know if that's what they did. I thought this is for the next one. Oh, no, no, no. They took shit away from people say, that's. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know why they would do something like no they, they, they, they came to your house repossessed. You'll gain cheese. Yeah. Tryout Representative on read it checked with the development team. It was told that split screen has been disabled as we evaluate some known issues, split-screen wasn't a feature touted when the multiplayer only game Losch in October in appears to have been added to the game shortly after October. Hey go sign. Give it down. Take it away. Man. You can't do that. Oh, yeah. This is gonna be playing anyway. Yeah. Man. Like they just told your truck that, that's really bizarre. Now. Yeah. Note that the split-screen removal is only for the blackout mode, it appears to be working just fine for those wanna take part and competitive multiplayer from that couch supporting up to four players zombie MO now. That's their. Bellary. Elmo. So wondering if there's an issue with battery battery game play that they had to take it out. And the question is, will they replace that because his left and everything else? All would if you wake up tomorrow, invited this split screen is just like been Donald that just slowly going away. Right. Takes time the dust. Oh, those people modes. Yeah. That's what they're saying. No word on win. Are if this will ever return, Har what the issues are they shit? Okay. That's okay. 'cause when when you initially told story, oh, they just gonna do for the next game. They're going to phase it out. Okay. All right. I can see why. But the fact that is taken out, not tell anybody. That's just that's not good PR with your player base Terry bizarre to, to be fair. It could be that there's a technical issue that has some urgency to it and has taken up. Okay. Sorry, you know, that's, that's kind of what it sounds like going on. Okay. So it's easy for me to say that they should probably give some sort of update. Two people always have to. Yeah. That's, that's why courtesy common some. Yes for people this is making news. So it's somebody cares about. Yes. So I think that the if it's a technical issue, I think it would be cool to let people know. Hey, there's an issue that's happening. We're working on it. We'll have this back in place. As soon as possible are given explanation as to why it won't be returning. But right now, people just kind of left in the dark on. No, that's the thing even if you can't, like, I don't know why you could just release oppressively very quickly afterwards, and even a tweet any social media platforms. They have to say this, this thing is going to be removed for right now. That's kinda bizarre to me. Especially if a developer like trae arc and act as activision you know, they think it hundred. Someone to do that get an intern the right it much effort. Now, I think that this kind of leads to even larger discussion of the idea of split screen in how for the past few years, particularly with this generation, and even the last was certain extent, how it's been phased out, like you're in the early days of split-screen end sixty four PS one like that was the heyday because all services readily available people accept it. You had PC will scripts split-screen you were able to play multiple organs of your friends. I think that that was great, but as services got better with, like XBox and PS two in later. Generations, three sixty NPS three that's when you start to see I think less, and less of split screen, and it's been phased out. I think you're right, man. Like, what I saw somebody. Who was that described Jag? My eggo Jake omega. You called you. Oil fool, as bits may punks. Yeah. True. Yeah. He loves blitzkrieg. You disloyal fool as bitch may sorry. Juicy punk near. With split screen, I can understand with. The internet being what it is today. Higher ban with trades and whatnot. I don't know who unless. You know unless you really are into plane with somebody at, at that, like your roommate or something with these games. I, I can I can van. Yeah. Yeah, I personally I really loved coop play. We do now I enjoyed playing if I had to play it online with somebody, I don't like looking at screens look like this. But if I have to I will, I will be upset if they phase it out. I don't know man. Because Harley anybody's playing games in multiplayer mode like this anymore. Yeah. I'm sure people are still playing split-screen but not to the extent as they were years twenty years ago doing Tinto yet we'll because their online services shit this shit forever. They which, which what am I? That's what screen because we talked about this before how you would just get confused would screen you for like a few minutes. Like, oh my God. Yeah. Man run off the stage. Uber die in lug after time. Yeah. That'd be a moment. Like you like just lean over to drink some water. Some shit where, you know, I get it 'cause I used to playing gears of war, man, took with Erica. Exactly man. Play play split screen on it used to it. It was fun. So I think let me ask you this. Do you still think that there's enough of a demand to keep split screen out there? Probably not. I just don't think so. I think majority again, this is not based on, I think data that I've seen, but just in trends right now, the biggest thing is to play online. I think that's what is not used split screen people using their separate machines. Because I think that there's also more. Well, it's easier. More convenient for people like we can complain the cover my own home. My Frank complain his home, and you just do it that way. I think a lot of people doing it that way. Yeah. It's all I feel again. I don't have any data to back that up. But that's my general, how many people really are looking forward to playing with their roommate on the couch. These game people. Try to avoid the people don't work. They don't talk to anyone. No human actions. Except what it's a little voice in your head. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah, because you'd have to deal with them when the game is done so. Yeah. So how about this? Chet tell us how you feel about this question. You know how many split-screen purist out there. How many people would miss it, how many people demand that stays? I'm gonna put it on you guys. And you can tell us what you're thinking right now. What up combing? How you doing, sir as Brandon, Brandon medicine, how you doing there, Johnny of the boys says, I love playing split-screen with friends. Okay. You go snap your friends if they're cheating. Well, you said, you can't lab your friends of their teen. Online says Brindley. Your friends online. That is true. The trolling you how let me ask you how many times did you slept you for instant next to you? Never know. No, no, no. They always exaggerate. Yeah. Get mad friendships ends back in the brain coop back. It's nice to have the option halo made my life. Sure. I mean that was yeah. During the first XBox ration-, halo was huge. Yeah. Yeah. Wow, look at us man, we're wrong. We're talking about would really miss it. A lot of people bring up also older games, like bears monks, golden GoldenEye, sixty four split screen Celebic. Yeah. Of course. But that was during that was years ago. Those was twenty years. Yeah. These people in the style right now. Yeah, I get you. But, like, when was the last time you play GoldenEye that's my question for you. Because I'm looking at some of these people right now. You know what I wonder if? Trust them here. I don't think this will work but I'm gonna try to anyone know that did not work. Awesome says acorn Chris plane split-screen cod is a call duty is always fun. Did mind split screen?

James having some problems is, is he still having problems? He's been gone for quite a while, is that they have. Is that when he tried to pick up a seventeen year old online or something? Yeah. He got a lot of like a ton of criticism for that, and everything. So he's been quiet ever since disaster artist. Okay. Because I was wondering, I said, you know, y'all mess with a lot of people at their, we forgot that, like, I'm not even trying to put the man on blessing, we've got that James Franco was on, on the phone online. Trying to pick up a seventeen year old girl. Now, I don't think people forgot that's why 'cause south ban republics fear, so it's so Dave is the Representative Frankel rating. So he's these the public image public face right now too. We find him in a hotel room. The twelve year old boy. Guys, an even with James Frank on the trouble that he's having still staying busy. You wonder why Seth Rogan was making so many movies by himself. A can't do it. Cool. Only crampy style, but the still keeping busy. Yes. Whether they're in the public eye are not. You know, one of these guys before this whole thing happened. They will both in a movie together where they brought us the master of disaster on stage in front of people goal. I can think about is what if they laugh at me, but you you're fearless. I wanna feel that too. I don't care. I'll do it. With both houses strength. Yeah. I guess we do. That is disaster artists. This is the movie of Dan. I'm gonna own reflection without somebody was watching those James Franklin. Now, you know, this is the movie about Tommy was oh in talking about pretty much this movie that he made that was done under some pretty extraordinary circumstance. Yes, you know, this mostly caused by him, this is a guy who black people said, was a loser, and was they say destined to be a failure therefore, the massive disaster disaster artists. And now with that out the way in which with such success that they got from that. Now they bring us the masters of doom. And that is with this book, that they're adapting right here by David Kushner, which is based on the backstory behind one of the most popular video games in gaming history of all time, which is doom. Right. And that is where we have John Romero in John, what stood with? The John's Narmak Cormac now. If you if you know anything about doom, the reason why we say because you honestly know that old shit and are talking about the game today talking about man their games great. But him any I I wouldn't call it historic. Well, the first doom broke this whole new ground. In video game history have saluting came out that the other two games have receded, especially with wolfenstein three d commander came wolfenstein, three, d and to show, you how big doom was at the time just like games today. I mean, people were pre ordering doomed to hell on earth. I would say that, you know, I don't I don't know if they had game stores people at they did people they would have been standing in line board. It was at that time it was it was phenomenon. It was it was for nominal was setting records. Unlike video games before it. Copy. Doom. Two is just such a bigger batter better. For this as a problem. No. The computers gets beat the people who like a highest Lyon. We has a bit of a lazy. I all star. Somebody's. Doom. Waiting for sure. This is more popular than football. Once you start playing. We have a lot of people asking what expecting to wins again. Come out. Where's it going to be, you know, worth working by the game? What is it about the game that makes it so historic at the time was the first time you experienced shooter this of this, this style? Now, they're there were first person shooters, obviously, is through e was the first three d one, exactly. This is the one that kind of let you explore all sorts of levels. The enemy design enemy AI was clever the way you just kinda progress through levels, you know, puzzle solving. It was it was just so advanced it took what they learned from three D And just kind of up to eleven. Yeah. And if you don't know wolfenstein three d that's where I think that was kind of the first game where you full immersed in the three D environments. And also, you got to fight robo Hitler at the end. Everyone loves that. Yeah. Nazis. Yeah. Exactly man. You can actually download the game right now played the easily. Yeah. Versions to Yana that people still doing a Mods of doom and wolfenstein to this day. Yeah. Yeah. And now they're making this movie that's based on the whole, I, I would guess, the, the story behind the production of the game sounding of it, and the relationship between John Romero and John karma in their employee's. Yeah. And you were saying that this could be similar. Now I can see this also, you know. Where being similar to move that you were talking about one of those movies banned the social network. Exactly. I need to do something substantial in order to get the attention of the club's slot because they're exclusive and fun. And they re to a better life. People want to go on the internet, check out their friends that build a website that offers that friends pictures, profiles them talking about taking the entire social experience of college, and putting it online was their relationship as tumultuous behind the scenes as it got for. What's his name sucker bird? Zuckerberg was it as tumultuous? Is that for a long time for a long time, because I know down the line with another part of their another part of their lives. We're gonna another game that, that was the point where they just had it with each other. Yeah, no for a long time, nationally start. Well, it's interesting like John Romero when they had such success with will sign three and later, do he kind of adopted this almost like rockstar personality. You know he was. Kinda like ease go with money, give it out to people for projects that kind of thing, hosting multiple parties, very easygoing guy, but not didn't have a lot instill. A lot of ordering people whereas John karmic. He was very much. You can kind of scrimmage, the Mark Zuckerberg type character where he was all about that order. Total control didn't want to create a very friendly environment for employees. I'm gonna tell you what to do, and you're gonna do it kind of doing now initially that worked with their different personalities. They worked off each other real well, but look, if you're looking for each other for so long and you have these very different personalities always gonna leave tension and that's what happened with them. And you know what there's a point where that thing, just kind of really blew up implodes. Yeah. In. The one of the things that talking about doing with this because they have a lot of people involved with this, this could also be made it could make a comedy in be similar to silicone valley. I think I think there will be comedy in it. Yeah. Writers on this or anything. No, I don't. I don't all I know is that James? Dave Franco are going to be producing it. Maybe I could see them right in, I mean, I know both of them have writing credits in the past. Yes. Because if they that's why brought up the, the disaster artist because I think they just seem to have a neck. In a thing for tumultuous projects bringing that to the screen which I could see them doing that with this right here. Because if you know the story behind John Romero to a certain point, I mean success got to his head got to, to his head in, you know, in ways where it just it just warped him. And in pretty much. It, it it causing Phil so big that he never recovered. And I'm trying to see some of these people that are that are going to be working on this because, you know, there's a they say that this is going to be on USA. Right. Because this is not a movie this TV show. Yeah. They call it in Thalji series, which leads me to believe what John McCain. Okay. So it's not going to be something like another. It would've put posted his halt and catch fire, which is also about the PC boom in the eighties nineties. Yes, this group of people that basic for two decades, I was going to be, but I mean with an adult series, I of think maybe they're gonna show different perspectives of different people that work for the company, and that kind of thing throughout those years. Yeah. In one, the writers on together wrote for video games looking to name right here, some stuff. You provide it to me. Tom Vissel, who wrote gears awards judgment in Batman Arkham origin. Both of those are good. Yeah. Now, the plan is to TV show, which is based on video game. So connection is there. That's what I was wondering, I was like, no. How? Are they going to do this as an anthology if you're talking about one person or two people are two people? Maybe sinner, on one person in we look at it from the point of view of another something like that you could also have it to where we're dum dum was huge for them. Doom was amazing doom two. That's the one that, that really a kind of push John Romero pushed him into an area where he just became some people he just became a complete asshole, the company that they had. John Romero at the time he this little older, right here. And some people say that he's kind of learned from his mistakes in the past with the success that he had in having so much money and be so young at the time is a guy who they their stories about him when he had a game did you ever hear about this? He had a game that was going to be released in was going to be bigger than anything. He had before. And, and the only thing that was making that game as huge before it was even released was his name, the guy behind all these classic and historic video games. John Romero, you know, it was almost like he couldn't live up to the hype. But it did help that. I'll read the story, so many times, and it's fascinating. It's a precautionary tale for quick success in how to run a company when that success happens are what not to do when you get that quicks assist tonight. Let go to your head instead of the game. He had coming out was gang called die. Catanha. You ever heard of this supposed to be like four different time periods. She got these bad ass characters the it was opposed to be setting a new standard and game play turns out at the time that instead of working on his fucking game. Right. Here is full was out in the streets racing. His Ferrari having parties in a pant house. Right. And when the game came out flopped, not only is one thing that live up to the expectations. People can deal with that game was the game shit the game with. Exactly. A little loading screen to try to make it the work on tried to make this work on a on an on a engine that it wasn't made for they forced it. Because at the time I think it was the quick to engine, when it came out. And so he tried to force that he, he was a there was, there was nepotism going on. I think you hired his girlfriend who had no experience working on this shit at all. The look of the game came out looking like shit, it people say for game that's supposed to be let me see if I can find gain forgave supposed to be so revolutionary has so much hype. They said at the game. You see if I can fund is here they said the game looked out data. See what your came out. Let me see ninety seven ninety eight. It was the latest. No. It was supposed come out in the Christmas of ninety seven. It got delayed these bad as characters have them like Minecraft characters. Balloon. He's like, oh, these parents. Little boy, ROY. Wearing waistline. Everything man, no mention all this, because for one, it's a fascinating story, you know, again, it's about somebody just had too much money and just blew it. And kinda just went in there and just sabotaged any kind of success that they would have believed the ohi Toledo mythology in doing we're gonna game where the thing that got them. They're totally not use any of that, to produce a gain that would actually deliver remotely any kind of quality. The, the, you know, I could see them later on doing like a follow through, like a continuing story of these characters after his done, maybe how he failed. Oh, sure, you know. No, maybe how others went off and created that because after that was done people left the company into start at the homecoming and under. Yeah. Well before even went under people leave. Oh, yeah. He's never recover from this. Can't even Ford haircut. I'm sure he incurred a lot of debt from it. Yeah. You hear stories about the day. He knows one of those things where it's like, yeah. I was young. Right. Was young. He's been humbled by. Yeah. Yeah. But he adopt he was the rock star of the video game world, least he viewed himself as that way. Well, John karmic? Well, he has problems. Certainly and that's, that's, that's the thing most excited about the show is just their different personalities behind the scenes because that's what the dramas gonna be humor, Andrew. This is what it yeah. This is what happens with. It's a story in listen, all these nerves I got beat up in everything in, you know that you ruin form. And they're so smart. Now they up to don't get you. There is no money, sometimes even worse because they had that bitterness in them. Well, you'd think with us this smart glasses and eight to do math and shit like they'd code you thinking like though, you know, they're smarter than average kid's. They fuck up to they can be Astles and e egotistical maniac egomaniac. Just like anybody else out there, you know, they can be the biggest narcissist in the world like anybody else that, right? There is a fascinating story, man. You gotta look. Yeah. Read the book. Masters of doom. Yeah. Well worth. Yeah. Let's see we got here what we got left. That's what keeps keep in cars passing. But I keep. People the background somebody like sleep on the couch themselves back one talk to the chat. Real quick. Yeah. I'm curious here. What they think about the show suits. I got to say. Give anyone money. Most of them will fuck it up. You got that, right. Man. I love reading stories about people who win the lottery and just fail. There's so many stories like that, man, people who have millions man and just spend it on the dumbest shit. No commonsense. Oh, thank you, Charles. Trial under the biddies twenty eight. He says he he sees something you win a carnival. I don't know what that me. He looks like someone that works at a carnival worker. That's what I would say. They're wrong. He's the guy that is always at the prize when he shooting the gun at the Parni Carney. Yeah. No, you're right about that looking at him. He even today. I gotta get back to work. Here you go toward saying, we'll John karma is a pretty much a genius. Workaholic famously ported doom onto the iphone in a single night. Interesting by himself. Nice. Nice. Hey guys, the PS four it I'm playing Spiderman right now. Great game. John James is an asshole in the game. He's an asshole anyway. Yeah. True by love the iterating. They went with them where they, he's not just like the head of a newspaper. But he's like Alex Jones his own podcast. He's talking shit like that's genius. Did with. No. I love it now. Let's see. They adopted into the comics or future films. If he's ever in them, I don't wanna give I don't wanna give any credited to Alex Jones whatsoever. Now, it's like most negative attention. Yeah. Attention to. Oh, let me see here. Blitz up in here. Toasted moody butts here. Are you going to get a legal battle angel when it comes out in July the Blu-ray like the Blu? Ray why I joined the film. I feel I'll say this. Like I was pretty down on it initially, just because I'm not a fan of Robert Rigas, but I was impressed by the it's too busy has too much stuff in it. Like the whole roller baller sequenced. You've seen all the trailers and stuff. If you haven't seen the film, not necessary. I think you could they had too many storylines going. Yeah. And they shouldn't have ended on a cliffhanger does, especially if there's not gonna happen, which I don't know if it will equal. Here's a question for you. Pull up some here. And you probably can't use all ready out there from just giving you warning right now rookie. So let me see here. Somebody asked you pricey down near the chat. If you look okay who has is somebody. Who would you pick who? Would you cast in the fantastic four for the MC you? Yeah. Well, Jonkers Inskeep mister fantastic. Emily them, you did say that.

It's going to some casting news for another movie that's going to be happening, whether you like it or not a lot of people, they say, man, you know what I was cool with the full while you made some good movies. But I'm tired of Disney taking these animated classics and turn them into live action. Disney promptly responded. We don't give a fuck key, making money you see him. You're seeing you keep we keep making money you keep bringing it in, you know, I'll tell you what. But with did dollars what do you want? Until then we don't keep remaking these animated films putting that flesh and blood on them. Next was gonna be this one. Go Chris one of the top ten animated features of all time. Yeah I like it. A lot says Richard Corliss time magazine. He's good guy. Okay. Yeah. He wrote words must be fact. On and it must be true. One of the greatest, I will say that is pretty great. And it's my third. Favorite of the what was it called the renaissance or the golden age the second goal the second, it's my it's my. It's my third favorite of the golden age sex kicked off a believe eighty nine yeah. Yeah, it kicked off the second golden Asian of Disney. In this at a time when Disney's animated features not doing well threat believes came right after I believe came right after Oliver friends, where after the failure of that. People are considering shutting down animating departments right. And then this little mermaid came in turn it all around. Save them yet. In the mouth says she is bitch can make money in cartoon form. Joe? What? Yeah. Man. Think about what it looked like if people see that fine as in live action, that's fish salesman. Scales, his signing scales action. No actually love this movie, and you know, because of that you always go in. You dread what they do if they turn it into a live action film. They say, well, just wait and listen to the casting, you know, one of the one of the most popular villains, not only of the of this movie in our of that second golden age of Disney, but one of the most popular villains of all time in Disney than Disney history is a girl Ursula. Hi. That's what I do. It's what I do for to hell unfortunate. Murph like yourself. Like yourself with new on to turn to. I admit that in the past. I've been nest they weren't kidding. When the code me, well, you'll find that nowadays, I've mended all my ways repented seeing the switch. And I thought shortly new maze. It's a talent that I always have. And he's are using. On behalf of the. Only. Don't you believe it? By the late that takes pleasure. Oh, yeah. One of the best villains. I think she has one of the best villain Sohn's of that air to. I love a poem fortunate. So it really is one the most it's, it's one of those condescending songs, but maybe got some great moments in there. It's a moment where it's a great song. But also has some scary like some real scary under twenty two heels about her onto for possibly decades, the people because what you see here all the souls that she's thought units pieces of shit.

Thickness, Tracy's hips. But. Now, they're going to be talking about course making a live action Ursula, and they're talking about the casting net is going with that often looked at, at Ursula thinking that, okay, knowing that the going to remake this in live action at some point, who would you cast as Ursula of often have my opinions of who to cast of 'cause I looked at if you if you really, really think about, and look, hard, Ursula look at them in the face to face. I said, I would cast a John Goodman. Know maybe. The head shape, and everything he's got the hair to this. He's got that resting mad face. You don't see they got saying, no. I think he's cross dress in the past. As the body double. Someone else's voice. John goodman. Just look at too. Like. But the casting that I learned through you today. Thank you very much that the talking about is. Melissa McCarthy, who so sweet rate look at that was billing us about that at all though, fortunate about. But then you stand the next together, all okay? All right. Yeah. Yes, I love, the just get like, the, the worst side-by-side emphasize the roles and the fatness and everything. Perfect. Look. They got married hairstyle. Let me put that together right there. You probably go low. She's got typicals. You know what I want to say this that one of the great things about Ursula that I love is in unfortunately animators, don't get the same attention as the officers. In movies, they don't they don't. They're behind the scene so they never get the credit that they should get. But for whoever the main animator was for Ursula, that is an amazing piece of animation just things that they not just that jiggle right? But yeah. Natural. Made it this, you know, you know that. For research you know that, that animated was every night of the strip. We went to showing her butt off to and she's like thrusting every like. It's like okay she's the lump. She was. Yeah. BB W B big below Noah, category, you like important. But. Yes. But if you look at the animated here man with you have to combine human movements with these tentacles right here. And it's been it's, it's an amazing piece of animation. They even you know, they have earned the water a lot of times that you see, part where she was on the boat and she'll you all of that, like an octopus. Yeah, yeah. You know, it's the mazing amazing piece of animation that they'd done almost makes me want to see what they would do with Melissa McCarthy in live action that I can see some stuff being done like they would do with, with pirates of the Caribbean. Luckily, Davy Jones around like beard, moves around and think, yeah. Like each has its own always under control get it. They don't interesting. That's the thing about this animated, man. Now, see if you do this with CG, it's going to be worked don't get me wrong amazing affect. They do and I have no doubt. But for for animators. When animators do this man. It's a whole different thing hand-drawn. Like you said you go that on that ass. I don't know what you like Chris. You baby. Like. Like like a where was that girl in the woman in expensive? TV Spencer's Smith. Pumpernickel babe. Octavia Spencer take on a role like this, too. But you know, I'm looking at this in. The animation. Now you have to animate every tentacle and everything like that. Ma problem. What I'm worried about with Melissa McCarthy being cast in this set table, Spencer. I could see that for sure. Now, I'm thinking, look, I'm not trying to really try to make anything racial. I'm thinking, Disney's probably thinking in a movie full of will probably be mostly white characters, we do not want to cast as one of color as the village, but agree with you. She would have been amazing. Yeah. I'm not thinking I was just thinking in terms of their ability to act. You're right. How it's sometimes perceived like thinking, I'm thinking about what they're thinking. But I'm just afraid Melissa McCarthy just gonna be bringing his brand of comedy that I don't like with her. Lau time because I think she's a brilliant brilliant actress man dramatic to she was in the film from last year. Which no one saw. But will you ever forgive me, which was grails of dramatic roller? She played not a villain but someone very complicated characters in a very bad thing. And you she knew what she wasn't relying stick on fat, and I fall over you laugh at me, that's at work, and she brought darkness to that role. If you don't have to see from her, and I think if she can apply like that type of thing to Ursula, commies, always be a part of hersal, dry comedy, be a different company, but tinged with that darkness that like, oh, look evil stuff that she didn't the background, you just know that movie it was called. Can you ever forgive me? Can you ever give me I love that movie? I think that's great. It is great. I had a really great time in the theater watching the film. And most of it had to do with Melissa McCarthy's acting as you say, she plays it on sale. Every character man in the film. So it's not like she can't play something villainous without all the goofiness and the others. Come on. Man, I slept things all the way here people waiting. You know you don't have to be disrespectful. You've actually carried my books here and you are Li Israel. We have copies of your latest work right over there. Jesus cast that gay dude. Pretty jets or something? Yeah. Guys actually really good. If you see this movie man, she's a she, she plays a she plays not only a woman who's doing some unsavory things. You don't really hate her, but she's. Get what she's doing, but she's pretty disturbed to in the film. I, I just don't think that she's going to be bringing in that kind of character to it being that she's a very broad world. And, you know, playing a very broad character. She is going to be bringing sort of her very broad since comedy to that. And that's what worries me. I agree with you. That, that's what I'm concerned about. That's what I don't want to see. I mean like if that you could see Ursula doing something like that. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Mannerisms. I can oh in matches doing that pose pose exact something like Ursula Disney animated movie or close to, which is the thing, the seed overhead. And that's why they're looking at that, you know, number it's the broads which we don't particularly want, and you're going to have to get somebody who's able to do these songs. Yeah. I don't know what their singer. Billy like. And that's the other thing, even lad. Which I didn't see Aladdin by listen to the soundtrack good portion of, like, can't sing, and that was one of the big reasons why didn't particularly care to see the film because look isn't have to be better than the end made movie. Had it be as good at the very least in did not come across the music, which I listened to oh, and so and Ursula when my favorite villain, Sohn's and all of the of that era. I love that music. And I don't I don't know. She can carry that sing though. Yeah. I haven't heard of thing either and. That's the thing. This is the this is a great number of those. Pretty face and don't under estimate. Lang. Dan? Nobody saw that. Becquerels too. Wow. On this. I'll be Yojiro. I'll take you to the dark place. Yeah. That song is that song as brilliant, man up there, be prepared with me. Like scar song. Yeah, but, but as we have seen. Disney. They don't give a fuck about what you can sing prince. Respect, you play down. One. Will smith? I'll be better than homeys. Yeah. No, man. He does it in the sun. The soundtrack doesn't in the movie, but. I feel bad for y'all who. Fortunate. We are fortunate those listen to you. Jeez. Yeah, man. That's he's no, Robin Williams. Yeah. You know that's a. Now the movie made money man, I know money. So it's probably not a big deal, but them too late, eight hundred million or something. Yeah. So if you know you have you, you have somebody in there, who's, like, again, pushing the more comedic side of things, they probably won't care. I want, you know what they might even have the song that's true because I think, what in Lion King coming out what the next month, they don't have prepared. That's not in the movie like I forget who's playing scar. He's not saying that so and I know they have a key for the love tonight, but only because that's kind of anthem for that song. So you have to have that. And. The life. Well, we'll see. Man. I in a way I'm really am for you know, they didn't see here. No, they didn't. They didn't take my pick, but, you know. But I tell you, though. I'm okay with what they are what they're doing as far as the casting for now. Think Melissa McCarthy she could probably do something with I, I would hope that I'm going to see more of the acting skills, if are outside of all the, the, you know, the, the, the physical humor that she does she can't she came pratfall. She ain't got no feet. You fall in the water, right? Yeah. You can't prep on the water, man you do that. Then you while you, you have a special talent if they're smart. I think they'll make the give the tentacles like a personality like how they moving around and do some creative things with that, which, you know, obviously seeing the, the animation here, but also maybe something new as well. Yeah. How she's maybe down again. They could go bad. We can't really control them all that well, and she's fallen over the place. Yeah. Yeah can't damning. She's going to be talking to them. Will you stop that? Shui hitting them. She'll be hitting them. Yeah. Yeah. That'd be fighting with him. Yeah. I'm telling you male version of this. Yeah. I'm will be behind these things if I thought the Joe would actually do something. But yeah, we'll wait and see. We'll wait and see. Right. You know. Until then, though my friends, we still got that aspect. Got it. Y'all still have this. Yeah. Non fortunate. Thirsty coming this watt. Oh, goodness. Goodness, gracious Nasc. Yeah. That's the chat saying. Question who has some casting choices who are some casting choices you'd like to see for the live action versions of Disney villains? I have when I would've wanted for far, who f- Abraham. Oh, Abraham would have been great. Yeah. Yeah. There's a gay do the live the live few doors down from me my last place. I would have picked him. Good morning. Heading out again. Cholerae where have you seen the trailer for bad trip? It's a movie with Eric Andre playing pranks on people. I'm done with pranks and stuff like that. Yeah. In the print. I like ooh. I like this. I mean Cassie was not a villain, but the actress who played y-y-your it from game of thrones, the Jon snow's. I love has aerial. Oh, yeah. Should be really good. They might have let me see. Good. Game room. Nothing. Eric. We see. Yeah. This girl she's hot seen her. She's married to John snow. What's his name Johnson? Tough time right now. He's in rehab, right? Yeah. Oh, here, she is. Yeah, man. Yeah. I could see her. Is that? Oh my God. Yeah. She got the lies and everything hair-color die here. But yeah the, the look. Older thing, that's, that's not her. Casio's among. Ounce dead in the original movie. Oh, we'll put in a casket. Ernie and berkshires. Honestly. No. He can make a good prince. Eric, he could put them in there together. He yeah. He actually would he looked at me as the, the, the black hair? Wow. Yeah. They would have a natural chemistry obviously from game of thrones. The ship was fantastic and that series. I'm all for very good. Casting fantastic, four sucks. But it's great for this. I like some you choices. Thanks, man. Let me see here. Anything else to Chad is talking about new only see people saying you can keep your accent, too. Yeah. I think it'd be kinda. Yeah. Actually give aerial kind of like a and I bet they're going to change the whole plot for the movie where because in that film's, she's lusting after a man the entire time. So a major change that just because of how. Yeah. Yeah. They will definitely ever nerve push as him about was king Trident. Yeah. Already in the water. So. Yeah. Let me see here. Have you guys seen the trailer for the movie called shadow hurt the mood. Very good to this. Let me see. We'll take a look at sure. Let's see. This is. Chinese. Mortal combat. Unbrella me my wife, talked about taking this with her. Those means of people talking about her as the, the yeah the umbrella. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because she talked about. She did not tell you about this. She wants shoving umbrella somebody's ass or something in open it. Yeah. Helping. Show. Sure. Chateau baazar. Don't. Relish. Did your teen Danta? Hello. Not. Yeah. Man. They have Jehovah witnesses aggressive. They need to give the large. Because you're about to meet him. Yeah. Let me see. Phone eat. I got tell you something, man. It was time that something like this would have done well in America, but I don't know how this would do now on as a main release his on Netflix in a long time since crouching, tiger hidden dragon two thousand one but it's gonna look there's always, you always go down like the bucks off his motionless highest grossing movies of the year. There's always like three or four from China five hundred million dollars. And so, I guess might be one of them. I like I like the I'm not to end of the, the some of the work stuff, but I like to stick kind of the, the black, gray and white as thick stands out. Yeah. Yeah. Does Thomas is doing well because I'm going to be honest with you. It was hip to say it like Chinese cinema was becoming popular with a lot of hipsters. And we'll finally penetrate western audiences, like Jackie Chan was like people were getting into those movies on VHS and later on DVD and this, it was some special, it was cool to say how much you like Chinese cinema's big at the festival crowd south by south west and stuff like it was because the festival crowd, and also because with the stuff it was mostly the underground, like with Jackie Chan movies becoming popular like supercop in drunken master, not stuck master to those things out there of was it a fighting Brooklyn whatever I know, but those movies becoming popular with, like, the, you know, the, the, the hipster crowd is watching this stuff at home. And, you know, people saying there's no bullshit man this. There's a store that, that that's over in Chinatown. Here that this woman runs can only find these movies there. So these kind of things start, they start becoming poplar man. That's what critics were ready for things like hidden. Tiger crashing tiger hidden dragon. It was it were be saints. Great people exposed to hold new kind of cinema. Sure. But also because it was just a hip thing to be into at the time. Gotcha. Hey, man. You seem Chinese cinema. You know, people say, how do I know because I was one of those fucking snobs at did. I you know, you're immersing the culture of the time and also cottage campuses, new- showing these movies. Okay. Yeah. I saw drunken master to on college on the college campus here hot gotta Torian at UT. And so it was just, you know, it was a it wasn't. It was cool, because it wasn't exactly. Still a mainstream thing to, to say. Sure. So now you've got these kind of movies right here now. They're mainstreamed home market isn't the same thing. Yeah. I just don't know the appeal of something like this. I more. I think it's like an effort. End up now I can't even think of like a Chinese film that it's like emphasis on action things. That gets a release in the states. Yeah. Tarintino used to put his name on, on Asian movies, like executive producer in two thousand see that's why you know. Croke. I'll tell you what came from this.

Top 3 Biggest Issues in Healthcare Today and What Our Employers Can Do to Help with Tista Ghosh, Senior Director of Impact Evaluation/Medical Director at Grand Rounds

"Welcome back to the outcomes rocket today, I have the privilege of hosting Dr Teesta Gauche as a senior medical director an epidemiologist for grand rounds. Doctor Gauche asks as virtual chief medical officer for numerous companies. She's trained both an internal and preventive medicine. She previously served as the chief medical officer for Colorado and was a member of the CDC's preventative services task. Force. Today we're GONNA be diving into some fascinating work that they're up to, and I'm privileged to really welcome to the podcast today to share her insights in healthcare space. But also what grand rounds is up to within the healthcare sphere. So actor Gauche. Such a privilege to have you here with us today. Thanks for joining. Thanks for having wall. So at some absolute pleasure, you know we're dealing with a lot of new normals and different things changing with the epidemic but even before then right, there's been an opportunity to do things differently and what you guys are doing at grand rounds as an example of that before we dive into that, specifically I love to learn a little bit more about what inspires your work and healthcare Sir I guess going back to being little I was told that there people who make a difference in the world and those who? Live and I wanted to be a difference maker and I felt that healthcare was a space where you could really make a difference in a person's life. You could really help someone and then later. I. Went Into Public Health which meant that I could help you know potentially thousands or millions of people by focusing on the health of populations. It makes a big difference and I love the way. That you could help people or you could just live and certainly the folks listening to this podcast are all in the people who want to help people and so So glad that we could hone into that. Tell us a little bit about grand rounds and what you guys are doing to help people have better health care and access to to caregivers. Sure. So grand rounds is really unique in that. Its mission is to really democratize healthcare so that if you're living in a rural place with little access to academic medical centers. And you have a condition that is concerning or life threatening. You have access to specialists at Stanford or Harvard or Mayo as you would have the same access that anyone else would in an urban center some of grand rounds does is try to make this type of access virtual. So you don't have to travel you can have access to experts around the country and get second opinions and the best medical advice possible to help with your treatment. But another thing that grand rounds is has really done especially in response to cove it. Expand access to clinicians sometimes twenty, four, seven. So they're they're virtually to answer questions and I by clinicians I don't mean our end I need physicians we have PA's advance nurse practitioners who are there to answer your questions no matter where you live, you can get us to almost like a doctor in your family so that any questions you have their available. Either by phone or through our APPS. So it's really amazing to see how well grand rounds is able to expand access to clinical advice across the country. That's great and you think about an employee's typical benefits plan and you know, Nego and they have clunky guide that is usually there to to help them find it I mean I've been through it you. Know, looking through different providers and it's not always the easiest way to find the best in network providers. You're saying you guys do it differently and I love to better understand how that process looks and feels and really what the core difference is in the grand rounds method finding healthcare professionals. Yeah. So we have a product called provider match, which actually is almost Like a joke about this match dot com for doctors and patients. So we look at over a billion different data points on individual level provider. So not just people at the facility level, but you know each individual provider and put them in quality sort of scoring de Siles, and based on that we match a person to the highest quality clinician in their area. And also based on that individual's needs you know are they diabetic verses? Do they have kidney disease? You know they might need a slightly different type of specialists. So we really create a match between providers and patients that are unique that are within their insurer network and our hopefully within a reasonable driving distance for them and I think that's one part of. Our goal to democratize high quality healthcare and I think it's very different from other other businesses in that it looks at the individual provider. It does not focus on you know one practice because a Lotta Times practices are bought by you know academic center a and that doesn't mean that the doctors there changed. It just means a different sign on their door so. Just because you're part of a certain academic institution or a certain brand name doesn't mean every provider in that practice is a good one. So this is Ben Really Helpful to people and we've seen better outcomes. We've seen lower ER visits we've seen lower unnecessary surgeries seen lower unnecessary hassles ation. So lots of great outcomes as a result of this type of match. It's very interesting at the individual provider level and you mentioned quality is one of the aspects of it and you know one thing that's kind of tough to measure. How are you guys doing it? Well, like I said, there's the millions of data points that we used. Some of the things are more obvious types of data points like very easy. One has the. Position been sanctioned but even beyond that, do people come back to them. If they're a primary care physician, do they actually return to the doctor or do they just see them once and never come back? Does this primary care doctor for looking at primary care? have good rates of preventive screenings recommended preventive screenings at the right time to do their patients. Gets screened so that they have better outcomes in the future we look at unavoidable eater, avoidable er visits do their patients tend to have your visits for things that they really didn't need to go to the air for do their diabetics have good outcomes you know for surgeons we look at their surgery outcomes. How often do they need revision arteries How often? Are. They you know if they're an orthopedist likely to just operate on anybody who comes through the door verses, send them to physical therapy or other evidence based practices. We also look at their referral patterns. Are they just referring to their buddy or are they referring to high-quality specialists? So we're looking at tons of data points and even prescribing patterns are they more? Likely to prescribe opiates or benzodiazepines that are not necessary. So you know these are just examples, but there's so many data points that actually go into Grand Rounds Algorithm and we've actually had independent third party validation of our methods through Harvard. Very cool. Thank you for that I. Just you know I think a lot of people also would press on that to say. All right you know, how exactly are you doing it and that's helpful to know right the the various data points that you guys are pulling from understand, and as an employer, you're wanting to really pressure test. A lot of the options that are out there is you're able to best match your employees with providers that are both you know transparent in their. Quality. Metrics as well as the best match for what they actually need. It's a win win. Absolutely. Yeah. So share share a story with us. He's about how the business grand rounds has helped improve outcomes or maybe even like made business better for the employers you serve yeah. Well, I think in terms of outcomes having matched people to higher quality care from the. Studies that we've done show improved rates of retention with primary care doctors, decreased rates of avoidable er visits, decreased rates of unnecessary surgeries, decreased rates, opiate use, which you know arguably is a very important outcome for patients and for employers. So I think we've made we've had a lot of outcomes that show not only improved healthcare, but also reduced cost to the employer. Because one er visit could be twelve or fourteen hundred dollars versus you know a PCP's visit is far less. So getting people to avoid the are on mass is huge were an employer especially if it's unnecessary er visits, of course, there's Times you definitely need it but so I, think there's been a lot of improved outcomes and value brought not just to the. But also to the employees because they have better health outcomes and because we also offer claims advocacy though that you know sometimes will notice that a patient is getting a bill that seems. Out of whack, it's three times what you would normally get charged and the the patient doesn't know about the employee doesn't know that and we may contact them and say you know the seems odd to us. Can we go ahead and help you and proactively reach out to this practice and see if they meet a billing ear and most of the time they did and that not only saves the employer, but it's as the employee. Any out of pocket expenses. So we really make a difference not only in their healthcare, but also their financial health as well. Totally, and you think about wellness you know financial wellness is a big piece health you know social and with the big you know out of pocket deductibles nowadays that right there seems like a great component of the offering. So you guys are are doing this and anytime liar like that happens you reach out automatically. Yeah, we have a clean advocacy group that is constantly looking and finding if there's something unusual and either reaching out proactively or sometimes people call us saying they don't understand their bill either way grand rounds once we've established trust with someone about their financial claims, they're more likely to use us for our clinical services, which is good because we want them to be healthier so. Establishing that trust through financial help is actually really important in improving people's engagement in their clinical health. Oh Yeah. I mean just incredible benefit there for anyone because it's not easy to interpret medical bills and also it's not easy to really understand the quality of care that your physician might be aligned with inside. Think it's both great great services if you had to identify maybe one setback that you guys have experienced, what would you say that is and and what's been a key learning that's made you guys better from it. So I would say what are setbacks when we when Cova started was maybe and I wouldn't necessarily call this a setback, but it was definitely a learning experience was not realizing how important having access to clinician advice would become to employees and how scared and concern they were and how scared and concerned employers were and I think we didn't understand right away quite the impact that Kobe would have what I do think we were able to do is once we realized it, it took a weaker two but once we realized we really rapidly expanded our offerings. To existing clients. So we were able to expand bridge access twenty, four, seven to some of our existing clients which meant that their employees were scared or worried could call us anytime and this we think helped reduce the burden on the healthcare system. This is the time where the physical in-person healthcare system was completely overwhelmed, and so we were able to take that all those questions and keep those who are just worried or maybe had mild illness home and reassured, and we could follow up with them and check on them, but we kept them out of the. Ers and out of doctors offices where more sick patients could be seen. So I think we were able to really make a difference there in the pandemic and for the healthcare system in general I think the other thing we were able to offer quickly is virtual chief medical officer services to various companies because what we realized as many of them had business continuity planning, but they didn't have serve a health component to it. They hadn't anticipated a health crisis they anticipated a wildfire or a flood, but not not this guy, and they needed medical experts to help. Guide them on how to keep their employees safe and went to close and how to reopen and all of that, and so I think we were able to hit it an offer some of that quickly to a lot of the employers. So we were not only able to help the employees, but also the employer is and I think we learned quickly again, I wouldn't call it a step back but I would call it a learning experience that you have to pivot quickly in the marketplace and able to bill needs. That may be didn't anticipate sometimes in a week. Though. Yeah, and that's what it's been and that's great. Yes. Change lanes right. In the benefits employee wellness space, then you shifted to operations as virtual CMO's and I think that's a really innovative approach and it sounds like probably very helpful for a lot of companies that didn't have that insight our know how yeah I think it's been really helpful and I think you know were helping them with how to return to work safely had to keep their employees in their customers safe and what I'm really proud of is that some of these companies are critical infrastructure companies that help keep the American economy going and so that we were able to play a small role in keeping that critical infrastructure going means a lot I mean it makes me feel like a difference maker. In a big way. So Kudos to you and the team doctor Gauche and being able to listen to the market and add value where even unexpected. You know I love the quote on your site folks. If you WANNA learn more about grand rounds, it's grand rounds, DOT com. The quote here says that securing amazing care isn't rocket science is data science and I think that's awesome. Dis- matches well with your words around the different data points for quality. When you think about today than the shifts you guys have made, what are you most excited about I'm excited that we're pushing into a more telemedicine type space we're shifting from just providing clinical advice to. Medicine and our goal is to not just a tele provider lake. Hey, I have strep throat can you write me some antibiotics but really to offer more whole person care and more of a virtual patients medical home? We're not there yet but that's where we're headed and I think why that's important is a lot of healthcare will be disrupted as a result of this pandemic. There will be small practices that go out of business there will be disruptions in. Specialty care as well as primary care in parts of the country where their primary care shortage areas that's just going to get worse and so virtual access to whole person care is gonna become extremely necessary especially in certain parts of the country in I'm excited that we're heading in that direction in that hopefully very soon, we'll be able to offer that and I think that's going to be a game changer for a lot of people in parts of the. Country where their own health ecosystem disrupted yeah. You know this is such an insightful comment and for long time it's been happening right the change has been happening slowly. But to your point at the front door to health care will forever be changed and it's exciting to hear that you guys are also considering this virtual access to hold patient care and it's going to be a a brighter future for consumers in healthcare right before this whole Kobe thing happened. Were talking about how we're getting closer to more consumer-friendly healthcare and this what you just mentioned is helping us lead to that in a much faster way. What are your thoughts on that? Absolutely I think this'll be much more consumer friendly and I think a lot of consumer needs will shift after this pandemic in the sense that people with Thai risk conditions might no longer WanNa sit in a waiting room and expose themselves to you know potential viral spread and. People will say, Hey, you know this not having to make an appointment and just being able to quickly talk to a doctor in my own time. You know that's huge I. Don't know why I would make an appointment and we'll wait. So I think consumers will see what's possible and that it is possible to reinvent that experience and I think there will be demand for that totally glove. That new possibilities and they're all opening up before us. Thanks to the innovators in the space and the the needs that are pushing us to get there as we use this time to transform our businesses and practices. Do you have any books in mind Teesta that you'd recommend for us to consider? So fiction wise I would say cutting for stone is a good healthcare book cutting for stone. what's the nutshell on that one? It's by Abraham Verghese and it's about a surgeon who happens at the same last name as me. So am I see why am? Our show. and then I think when we do harm. Doctor Confronts Medical, error is an interesting read as well. Some great recommendations there folks you know where to go for the shouts, the full transcript links to Grand Rounds Scott Outcomes rocket dot health, and in the search bar type in grand rounds, and you'll be able to find all those notes and links with our interview today with Dr Gauche or here it's been a very interesting conversation I'd love if you could doctor Gauche, just leave us with the closing thought and then the best place where the listeners could continue the conversation with you or not. Sure my closing God is healthcare will change forever I think as a result of this Timoc I, think there will be a shift towards virtual care and I think employers should consider virtual care options that meet their employees needs as they go into the future and I. Think we're GonNa see this not only in the upcoming year when we see resurgences in viral spread but also afterwards when I think we'll see a major disruption. In how healthcare is currently delivered an elad of consumers shifting to virtual model. So thinking about that in advance is only tier advantage that's a great call up grey column, and where would you say is the best place for the listeners to reach out and continue the conversation you can find me on link sins I'm just under stat Gauche and feel free to reach out to me there and I am happy to continue the conversation. While there you have it folks, Dr. Teesta Gauche at grand rounds the way that you provide care for your employees receive care doesn't have to be grounded in opaqueness. Right there's data science to back up the way you access healthcare professionals but also question kin billing that doesn't look right and hang even during these times maybe virtual CMO could be there to help so I just WanNa say thank you so much. He stuff for the time spent here with us and definitely looking forward to seeing such. Great. Thank you.

And now, thanks close to sit down interview with the superstar cast Termine to show what it means to tackle tough issues with the dynamic team of female characters. Here's ABC's Deborah Roberts. Would deeply passionate about what we do. And that's just glorious to behold, because everybody wants it to be good. And we all willing to work and work rigorously for to get it there to have these amazing goddesses at the home to give us these opportunities to explore women in this way. It's just amazing HBO's big little lies and it's all star. Cast Laura Dern. Nicole Kidman Shaleen Woodley, Zoe Kravitz in Reese, Witherspoon are back returning to Monterey California, along with Meryl Streep secrets and passions. Undead kidding ourselves between people start talking people talk at all being a little bit paranoid. You guys, I think people moved on and the police have definitely moved on. Well, we don't yet for sure the first season Reese was all about lies and secrecy deception. How would you describe season two? I mean while there's still a lot of Sikh. Secrets new cast members who bring new dynamics to Monterey things don't just end because there seems like a conclusion the mini series was a cultural than waiting, but nominee, snacking, eight Emmys four golden close millions tuning in each week for provocative dose of female empowerment, friendship and motherhood. No one planned on season two. But the show's breakout success in Thais bisque group to come back to their iconic characters. I told them my daughter Emma, bell is going to be in your class, though, exciting. Very nice to meet you. I'm she has an IQ of a hundred fifty to genus level. Right. That's a very high number once about giving take, I expect you to take care of my daughter, pay special attention. And again, welcome. What was it that made this so special explore the inner psychology of women? It's not just looking at women from the outside perspective, and kind of voyeurs sickly watching their lives unfold, where in their heads. For understanding why they make certain choices. We're watching them need to connect with each other, although they don't want to at times, and there's jealousy, and there's envy and their support. I think that's why people relate to it. The mud moms grapple with tough issues like sexual assault and domestic violence. I'm not coming back with you. So. Last season ended with the women defending one of their own against an abusive husband this Sunday, the show picks up right where that bombshell, pushed down the stairs, left off Mary Louise Meryl Streep, taking on the role of grieving. Mary Louise, who son was killed. How have you been a good good? The kits are guide. How are you? I can't complain. Actually, I can. My son is dead. I entered this world from the outside from an audience member. I loved this that first season. I thought it was the most compelling TV that there was when Nicole's said, would you be interested in being in it a second season? And I said, yeah. And she said, well, do you want to read it? And I said, no. I just want to get on to be in that world wasn't going to be Maryland. Your mind. We was so lucky because we dreamed big in it. And it actually came to fruition, the girl, power isn't Jost onscreen, both Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon are executive producers in this season. The directors woman to what is it like in Hollywood getting to work with so many women shocking. It's an unusual experience for many of us. You know, when I started acting at eleven years old, and the first few movies, I did my makeup and hair was done by men, the only female on the entire production was my script supervisor friendships have blossomed between the women with Kidman referring to her co stars as sisters on her Instagram. She even paid tribute to their bond. When accepting her Golden Globe in two thousand eighteen we sat at a table. We pledged allegiance to each other and commitment to each other. And this is out to share. Wow. The power of women. This season. Audiences will learn more about Zoe Kravitz. His character Bonnie is always character is a hugely pivotal role in the second season. So bunnies past and future gets explode, and Mets cues. Actress running late arrived on Q. Sorry, big timing is perfect timing. We were talking about though exploring the different characters this year. What is that, like, the you delving into Bonnie's life? It's really exciting because I felt like I connected so deeply to hurt the first season, but we didn't get to explore her as much as I'd hoped. So there was so much kind of sitting in me ready to explode. And so it was so beautiful to get to explore that the season what's going on. I count someone. Member. Yes. That's heavy. I mean, pretty angry at me for some reason. I'm angry with myself. What have you learned from each other? And what have you sort of discovered about yourselves working together? I felt like each person brought a different kind of insight but it was always something that I could take away from it and really use for my character because they aren't just thinking about their characters. They're thinking about the whole peace and that was just a completely unique. Experience for me women across all industries for a long time. If felt that they have to put life aside, to be a professional and the more women, get the opportunity to work as a collective, we bring all of our life into our work, and our art in our parenting, and our friendships. So we get to live life together while we're at work, and I've never had that experience in this way. It's very beautiful. It's an experienced this cast would happily hold onto a little longer too early to be talking about season three. This one. Yeah. Assery. I wouldn't love it. I'll go on the record sale. We'd love it. I know who they'll kill. Go to your. For nightline. I'm Deborah Roberts in New York. And finally tonight, the jeopardy champ wiped off the board. James host.

Review: Netflix's Army of the Dead Is a Heaping Dish of Turn-Off-Your-Brain Entertainment

"Netflix's army of the dead is a heaping dish of turn off your brain entertainment by stephanie's carrick in the michelin roster of pop. Entertainment filmmakers zack. Snyder is the chef who never knows when to stop if he thinks. A dish needs more salt. He adds it not by the pinch but by the bucketful a little pepper somewhere down. Wind and entire small countries sneezes then. He pours the whole thing into a cement mixer and something comes out sometimes. It's a movie snyder's news. Zombie entree the army of the dead is too scattershot. Perhaps too derivative and definitely too long. But it's definitely a movie as well as a perfectly acceptable. Turn your brain off entertainment. The plot goes like this after a captive zombie escapes from a military truck. All hell breaks loose somewhere around las vegas and all out human versus zombie war ensues which is dramatized wordlessly in the movies smash bang opening credit sequence set to a woozy version of viva la. Vegas this movie within a movie opener now. A pretty standard approach for snyder is perhaps the best thing about the army of the dead a melee of military dudes and dude s.'s blasting the heads off zombie that include bloodthirsty show girls dressed in raggedy spangles flesh chomping bridal parties and elvis impersonators on the hunt for some love. Me tender loin. It so good so self consciously nuts that you could probably just stop watching there and be perfectly satisfied. But of course there's more one of the zombie fighting dudes. We met in that opener. Is dave about teesta 's scott ward. The zombie war ended. When the city of las vegas was fully walled off by of containers trapping. All the zambia's inside and even though scott has been duly decorated for killing a lot of those undeb. Las vegans who were incidentally anything but vegan. He's now flipping burgers greasy spoon. Certain events connected with his own be. Killing days have estranged him from his daughter. Kate ella purnell. what was it all for. He now wonders then. A most definitely evil casino magnet hiroyuki sanada approaches scott with a plan to infiltrate the lost city and retrieve a heap of cash from a giant safe in his casinos basement. The plan has to be executed quickly because the government is planning to nuke the city of zombie five misfits on a random national holiday. That happens to be july. Fourth scott likes the plan. What is he got to lose. So he assembles a team. That includes a chainsaw specialist. Omari hardwick a crackerjack helicopter pilot tig notaro and polite german safecracker who knows his wagner matijas schweighofer and breaches the tinny metal walls of the city which it turns out has now become the kingdom of a higher class of zombies led by a willful sinewy king and queen played magnificently physical performances by athena parental and richard citron. There's lots of plot in our of the dead. It's zombie movie a heist caper and a sentimental father. Daughter reconciliation drama with dashes of feminist vengeance and furtive glance romance tossed in army of the dead borrows heavily and not unexpectedly from movies. We've seen before including everything by samba. Maestro jorge romero but then snyder has already made his own version of dawn of the dead. And most of these images have been burned into our collective unconscious anyway. Army of the dead's chief flaw is that it's just too long too much of its muscle and bone is obscured by flab. Snyder isn't a particularly thoughtful director but at his best he's a visceral one. It's too bad. This movie isn't leaner still his ruined kingdom of las vegas a mad crumbling city with no memory of its neon passed as a kind of heavily. Cg i'd poetry about it and he does give us one fantastic feline character. A zombie tiger named felon tyne late of siegfried and roy stage. Show a one eyed gal with dusty gray and red for the texture of a nail brush. Her ears half disintegrated into tiny nubs. She prowls her turf with regal. Fuhrer valentine shows up in army of the dead exactly as many times as she should at just the right intervals proving that when snyder puts his mind to it he does have a sense of restraint to go along with his imagination. Our compliments to the chef.

"What's the secret to a happy life for the answer? Join us in Madrid from Thursday, the twenty seventh to Saturday, the twenty ninth of June for molecules fifth annual quality of life conference. Head to conference dot monocle dot com for all the details and to buy your ticket, monocle, keeping an eye and in here on the world. Halo unto? Welcome to the menu monocle show on food drink and hospitality Marcus hip this week. We meet British top, chef Ben Teesta talk about. He's new book and the topic of cultural appropriation in cooking, another well known. Big math talion chef involves sangha only Italians can cook Italian food. It's ridiculous. Isn't that I mean that kind of attitude and itself stinks? Then we are in doubling checking our Ireland's first alcohol-free Bah, the Virgin, Mary, you're going to get that kind of feeling that you are drinking alcohol drink, but you're not so you can get in the Colin drive home. If you drive or you can Komen. Honestly, well, without a hangover smart. We're also in Genoa full, the slow fish, fair and get a disowns recommendation to all that's a head on this week's dishes off the menu here. Markle twenty four. I today, let's hear from the British Schiff, Ben teasha, who has gained fame for cooking the full of modern Spanish and Italian cuisine in the UK Ben sa- brand new cook book Morrish is now. It's name refers to the moors Muslims of north African descent who invaded spay or Kibuye the IBM peninsula, during the middle ages. Ben joint Monaco's. Tom Edwards at this Midori house studio one to talk about. He scooping style and how the lasting legacy of the malls in southern Europe can be seen in the regions. Cool, nuriko chump, having worked with and cook Spanish and Italian food together, and kind of intertwined with the past fifteen sixteen probably longer years and traveling that a lot I spent more time in the south. And so that's kind of where the motion, princes, certainly most prevalent, that's kind of way. Occupation. Mainly was, so Spain you've got blue there and indeed the island she knows Barrick islands. Canary Islands all have emotions in Italy. Southern parts of Italy, Puglia Calabria, and then definitely socially is very prevalent, the Cillian island alien islands and so on. What does the Morrish influence main will to me? I mean, I think there's y'all contextual veasley those things. But in terms of food, I think different bits two. I think the cooking techniques that are prevalent in those parts world were in shoes to so things like deep frying cooking promptly over a grill or charcoal grill talking about throwing a lump of meat on the fire, but particularly grilling and chocolate grilling that was all introduced by the malls to in that occupied there. And I think that's a good starting point. That's really interesting cooking, techniques, and then ingredients and dishes, you know, ingredients things that we take for granted. Lemons oranges all introduced by the malls. One because they wanted them there. They weren't than first place wanted. They smell nice. They wanted to put their stamp on the places they marched into and Luthier and than Sicily. So things like that. But also, you know other techniques like preserving pickling gain, all shoes by the most for kind of hot weather, Etang. No refrigeration so things had to be preserved and pickled. But also, they were delicious. You know, the malls have real technique, an flare about these kind of rustic people. They had skills. Hence the honing hats fire and they like perfumes and they distilled alcohol when they were in under Luthier, you know, they went drinking, but they sold alcohol to create perfumes, and things like that was the it was the natives that started drinking, the distilled alcohol but yeah, these were refined people. The sport refined things along with what fascinates me now is that of c they spent seven eight hundred years, occupying, those that part of the world and then kind of they were for move. It on. But it's the stump that's left now. So it's phase more into what the natives eight but there's still the influence moist down. It's kind of intertwined and developed over time. So pinch maroon us okay is a signature dish. Van Luthier, essentially a kebab couldn't get more Middle Eastern than that kebab and it spiced with cumin spoke precursor and vinegar and garlic and cooked over charcoal grill. It's north African except now is maybe Barikot pork. Right. Which is overseas much pork in ugly. Staple diets Ibaka, Paul, and that is the signage today. She would have been land when the, the Arabs with I think that typifies how it's gone, you know, GRA nita's insistently created vote the balls combat to the hot, weather and kind of easy to eight. And now you know they become more refined. And, you know, they made with things now like almonds and coffee and talk with cream, and things like that for me. It's more how it's developed overtime after the Moore's had left, and I think what choice. These interesting is talk about refinement. There's also this idea of the perfume, people think of those, you know, the, the scent of orange blossom. Exactly, I'm definitely hot weather, which is what this region is all about what is it works? I will then in this country. Let's be fair. Okay. This type of food because we're not blessed with the worst of weather this climate. It's actually been fairly nice. But it's it's not a pot. It just the pilots much exciting at the nature of us. I think we are we've come on in leaps and bounds. In terms of food, and I'll call me. I'm Bishen I think we have birth we originated from very bland, pallets. Right. And I think if you look back thirty forty years and even further back of food in the UK, not very exciting and not full flavored. And I think this kind of food still excites pallets. We still find exotic and, you know, Middle Eastern foods anyway, not just talking about Moishe Middle Eastern food is having a real moment. Many. I think yes, it's sunny, exciting vibrant precisely because it takes you away for take the plan this. So exactly that. I think it's exciting and vibrant. Yeah. Well, let me ask you because I wanted to talk a little bit about exactly that kind of evolution food, scene here and see, particularly she taught even because you have all these different hats that you, such. Criti how's that change? Maybe if we look at it with your sort of restaurateurs hats on, I guess, our listeners wherever they are in the world, probably will know various, the restaurants chains that you've been involved with over the years. I don't know has it easier to please people in a way because them open to being challenged or has it become more difficult, to please them precisely because they have more experience. I kind of know what they want. I think I think a good question. It's two bits that yes, people have become much more knowledgeable about food and different craziness throughout the world, and different styles, and more knowledgeable about anything, whether it's a burger or sandwich, or Putin cuisine, or whatever people more knowledge, without it, and they want to be more knowledgeable about it and get under the skin of it. And I think so in that respect, you can put in London in a bit of a bubble heads be. It's it is we all know that. Yeah, but, you know, you see, it's only you can open anything interesting concept and people will come an enjoyable and well, they'll come and experience it. But the flip side of the question is that because this so much choice now? And everybody's an expert it has to be good, right does have to be good. Whereas twenty years ago you could get away. I think personally with not been quite as good. So you need to really nail concept, you really need to the quality and get it all right for people to come back. That's the key thing. I think you gonna probably people coming to visit a concept in verse time. But it's come back his challenge, and I should say that. When Bensaid expert he made those? Yeah. To that point. I don't get the impression of tool you'll sort of an evangelist about the cuisine including just you can see and read, and I want to lick the pages. But the passion for your subject matter comes through, and I think people eaten a new restaurants will so identify that is there a part of you, though, that whilst you welcome that increasing base for the Cosima is a little bit. I don't know defensive or protective, like these are chefs villages and passions. Is it annoying? When there's a punter who says, oh, well, actually, I've been. It says it says, I think human nature to say that I if I you know, I'd be telling the truth, and I said, otherwise, but yes, it is. And I think it's just about being trying to be thick skinned about it. I mean, the whole social media and online, reviews and comment pages and things like that everybody can comment to, you know, and I think you've really got to be thick skinned not get sucked into that. Otherwise, you will you will go mad with negative review, people that have a differing opinion on what spent a couple of years, researching this book, no doubt when it. No doubt people will have another view on it because, you know, we're talking about fourteen hundred years ago. So there's going to be, you know. Virgins waiting. It hasn't happened yet. I'm waiting for it. The crap. On that point, I think slightly tedious narrative recently about chef since of cultural appropriate. This kind of thing I said your initial reaction will be why do we have to put up with that? Thing is a melting everywhere. There's no real original wherever you go in the world. So I mean it's still get what gives oxygen is at the bottom half of the internet that we should just ignore the I think it will. What started this was this whole Gordon? Ramsay thing wasn't it? And I think clearly it was an attack on Gordon Ramsay personnel thing as opposed to cultural prepare. Yeah. I think it's ridiculous. In fact, I was asked to comment about it a couple of days ago and somebody says, you want to comment on this, you wanna stay out and this is coming. So find the thing up say ridiculous. I haven't got a Spanish was far as Spanish retaliates blood in from sketch in Lincolnshire originally. And so the, the something Rivera. But and then I was thinking about telling so I think there's another well-known big math talion chef involved saying, oh, neat talionis can cook Italian food. It's ridiculous. Isn't that I mean that kind of attitude and itself stinks? And I think that Italians only cook food while it's any because they will generally cook what mama taught them. And they won't go out of those parameters you some of the best Italian food is river cafe. They talion no rose the not fair. Randall Angela heart Hartmut you know what I mean? So I think I just don't think that's got Legg's atole. And so I just had all I made a couple of sentence comments, and I left that but it's ridiculous been to their in discussion with more calls to Edwards and bins new book Morrish is out now. Nixed up on the menu. We are of to Italy to talk seafood and sustainable fishing these past weekend. The city of general late host the biennial. Neil slow fish event. That is where fishermen from around the globe showed off their fresh and soul war to delete Kasese and discussed ways to help manage the population of fish stocks organized to buy Italy's slow food movement. The fare offered I opening discussion sense, plenty of opportunities to satisfy once pallet Mongols Ivan Cavalli. Oh, reports. Jenner was Porto. And Tico is a suitable spot to discuss the impact of man on the sea home to the city's aquarium the outdoor venue overlooks the harbor towering. Cruise ships take on passengers here along the waterfront of the city's old court. Slow fish now in its ninth edition brings together fishers, and producers introduce the public to traditional seafood, preparations, and how best to preserve marine species at the marketplace visitors sample fish around the world, including smoked Norwegian herring and Italian anchovies companion representing Spain this year, his chauffeur supplier, keen, Alvis Portela, a fresco he del mar. We have a here, scallops scallops have very typical seafood from. We have scallops marinated scallops with the water and we've combined with three different sauces, one shows, if maze, made of garlic other sources made oneal and other he sound lines. Hey, I was placing all of them are very considerable, sustainable fishing. Are from this. And of course, they respect sizes, they respect that they cannot fees under respects legislation. This additions theme was the c the common good and highlighted the plight of the some sixty million people around the world who work in fishing, in Holland's of Dutchman. John gets used to catch grey mullet. But due to declining stocks linked to human activity. He switched to Pacific voice tres an invasive species that arrived in the nineteen eighties to shores. Land-based tippety, what we all do together, as a society that live like two hundred fifty million people in the Ryan area who influence every day. Mike 'hostile zone. Things are changing. There's too much nitrogen the water it's getting more sour. It's getting warmer. Harvesting wild issues by hand. He now helps a native species of mussels keys rows of food for local birds frequenting the title areas from being squeezed out by the blooming voice population. His oysters have also proven a treat at markets in Amsterdam. Okay. So you and your now shucking oysters and says your Pacific oyster is the extra species called it because every area gives his own taste. This is the wild Butto Easter ver- noise ter-, and she as a rough character on the outside. But on the inside is twenty percent. Meet at is really meaty in. It's what is being fed by the rind in Elbe. So it's not so soli. So it's quite brackish. And this is one of the most tasty. Isis slow food invited one hundred delegates from twenty countries to talk about the challenges facing traditional fishers, and producers basin. Southwest court Ireland's Sally Barnes runs woodcock smoker. Curing and smoking while salmon by hand for enterprise with one fisherman working the blackwater river for her is under threat from big business. Fish farming has become enormous business in Ireland. Many of the bays on the western shores of our land are now all ccupied by salmon farms, which should polluting our natural environment. Introducing new disease to salmon in cages, which is lightly to jump from the cages into the wild. That's the problem with farming fish all over the planet. When you condense one specie into a small area, you're likely to increase the numbers of bunks bacteria, viruses, and then reproduce an incredible. Rates and cultivate was there was just so many problems with the farming industry. I fill at the fish by hand. We dry sold fish, which contentious down the water takes Walter and contentious the flavors. So yes, it's very expensive commodity, but you're not buying lots of water, but teary love free water. So what we're trying to create a safe, which do by removing the water in the joy salting that can take anything from four to twenty hours after washing the Solta for someone and giving them a little masters to move any blood, this still in them out of the veins are still in, in the flesh would put them into the machines is kind of a very respectful way of seeing them off. They then have ten hours of cold smoking in beechwood smoke. Very sweet words in the end visitors at slu fish one over by. Delegates by Barnes. Once tasted the products made using artisanal practices that promote sustainability when it comes to enjoying the bounty from the seat for Monaco, in Genoa. I'm I've volume. And you with the menu and monocle twenty four. The Irish pub may be every to restore institution around the world bus. The reasons decades haven't been easy, four pubs in Ireland as their numbers have been in decline. However, the taste for good noise out has since gone away amongst the Irish. So the Virgin Mary islands, I known alcoholic ball which opened this month be the future off the bar. Monaco's Sebastien Stevenson visited the Virgin, Mary, perhaps more striking than being in a bar in Dublin with a bar cantor. That would have a combined it less than five percent of alcohol across its Stolz is how small, it is the Virgin Mary has only four benches and less than twenty stools in the bar. Vaughn Yates, one of the co founders of Arendt's first bar, that exclusively serves non alcoholic drinks and cocktails says, you could fit forty people in here, though, you would hope not to be one of the forty the. Cheerier seems to have had the bar trade. One stereotype for another. The bar has a warm green color with copper colored lighting fixtures. The stems of the stools and tables are thin and the wood floor. Herringbone patterned. It is a smart but cozy field. It may look like a ball. But is it a glorified juice spot Vaughn, and I grab drinking, how to chat in a not so quiet corner. Many think the last place, you'd want to set up a non alcoholic bar, which is a rarity in many places around the world would be an Arlen considering it's part of put it generously, the identity of Ireland is that something maybe that you considered when setting up here in Dublin, well, working Dublin, it'll work anyway, because Dublin is one of the drinking capitals of the world. If you think about wsa city, I didn't use any city in the world has a drink so associated with the city's Guinness is Dublin really. And I think that the Irish consider. By lot of Sunday by the Brits. And some of the other Europeans is good time, people that drink. And I think that if we can make it, what here they said it could work anywhere. Well, I guess, maybe we'll play devil's advocate then and see about, you know, what makes this more than juice bar. Is it the kind of bringing up bar like coziness into a place where all this sort of maybe more aspirational, upright kind of space of juice box agree? I think I think it's cozy bench seats. We've got a little smug here, which is traditional in ours are responds spot was inspired by the old soda shops that used to be here in Dublin and maybe kind of apothecary style herbal shops. Because if you think about the Serta shops that we hear their Victorian they would not alcohol. They were serving soda they'd have a side of fountain that have guy behind the bar. You come in. You'd have a drink alcohol environment. Then they gradually disappeared. I don't have a new concept really is. It's been around for a long time. It's just kind of wind, but I think it's now time prince come back. I think another reason it's coming back is because there's a lot of pressure milk whole industry from government and from lobbyists as well. And I think that by offering a non alcohol choice, you are reducing people's consumption alcohol during the day, but still allowing them to go to known alcohol environment said. I think the as I said earlier, the longevity of the night can be extended if it's a night involves drinking alcohol and not drinking alcohol. If they wanna come here, they can have a perfectly good evening, they can drink all the flavors, they'll get within a traditional ball but. But. Could you tell me a little bit about your, your background? Is this your first time kind of in the hospitality this, it's the first time I've owned a ball my business partner? Ashini co-founder. He's run balls before shooting club. When we talked about it was very much case of, let's try and do something that has all the top service that you'd get from a really good ball. The glassware we, we have apartments watch for crystal that's playing with crystal losses amazing gloss way that we can talk us. It's very woman artist company, and we have the kind of environment that I think allows people to feel just the same as really. And to enjoy chatting conversation. Right. Not have a kind of Larry conversation, have a conversation that can go on for the whole evening. And you can walk out feeling that you actually had a dream. We had a group of friends on the other night, just to trial, the drinks and a lot of them kinda what time when awhile feel really Tizi feel kind of a real placebo effect about sitting and having a kind of social occasion, within space, you have someone who's felt tipsy, even though there was no ethanol in his body. There was a girl sitting exactly what I'm seeing you for. And she said, wow, I feel like I've got a bit of both, but maybe it was just the buzz of being out being with friends talking, and, and the energy levels, probably went up in her body. She felt that that was something to do with the drink, but the drink is zero to zero point five percent alcohol, that's legally, what we could serve within this bowl. Why don't we try a during Carey? So tell me about this. This is kind of a sham. It's not champagne fluke, but it's the type of fracture. It's basically a non alcohol seco- with saving little tasted for people come in, and we offer is on wines. We have eight nine Oklahoma is for the moment, and we've known alcohol smuggling drinks and this is one of the cheaper this thing. So the. Acute, cuba. It's five euro gloss or eighteen year old bottle. So it's not too pricey. Well, left have to see what it's like cheers, you're drinking, the sickness drink talk about in a moment. It's definitely got kind of maybe the body of kind of with that fair to say, even though it is sweeter finance lease more sweeter. I'm not necessarily missing the alcohol in terms of, you know, it's still a bit of sparked. Exactly. And that's what you can expect from all the drinks, you probably tried tonight. You're going to get a variety of drinks styles. You're going to get that kind of feeling that you are drinking alcohol drink, but you're not. So you can get in the car and drive home, if you dry, will, you can walk home and sleep well, without a hangover. It's more. So we have your call tells as described on the menu here. We have maybe tell us about the signature during which the bars named after. Yeah. So veggie Mary is made with fresh tomato juice. So we don't use like Celta style, which is using a lot hotels in balls around the world. On the doorstep of Smithfield, which is doubling market. So we've got some fresh every morning from the market. We choose the tomatoes, we use the pope dehydrates it and create little garnish which you could try laser so dehydrates tomato hope and we serve kind of fresh issues with Moscow, which is white, white wine, white wine, we use pickle lime and spice spices fresh, horseradish. So it gives you that real spicy. Flavor to the virgin. Mary. We will spicy, pick me up. So if you coming in, and you want to pick me up this really gets them nasal passages running, and they know it's like, you know, mild curry in liquid form.

Chris this is why you and I don't get along so for those who don't now this is the beauty is the beautiful thing and get me assume listen to his voice the Voice of a person who doesn't give a fuck he does care and then he gets into the office and he's always like on his computer working thank you yes so annoying because he has a very like non like nonchalant way about him so people automatically think how European how lazy European Delays Path that is fun it takes a lot to get to a point where that is your career that's so true side-hustle done enough side hustles for Myself hard worker you're you focus Taylor also has about twelve balls in the air at any given time true story therefore I would say that being said I work very hard me I've never been told by anyone of importance that like I've worked that I've been lazy or don't work hard Oh so it is but I assumed you'd be a full-blown slacker so when these were of me why I don't know just like yeah why no I mean I get that allow people like that got because talent level really honestly that's all that's what I want to say I just love me hey fair respect me fear me love me a raise I think there was most impressive you when Chris started working at batches because I knew him for a while he was doing podcast for us yeah and he was also she qualifies for she's one of the top three hardest wouldn't ever accused of being slackers I would accuse myself in yeah like my brother he's like in labs solving disease world disease here that's easy get back to your while he's waiting for the Patriotair sack either no you get nothing for free the only thing we ever got was I worked the day before Thanksgiving and they sent you home with a roast chicken take take a nap case Yes yes isn't taught vacations people always assume that I manage many restaurants in my day strike worlds yeah thanks to contribute Irving Pacman so they give you that free four ninety nine rose check in four ninety nine around why everybody thinks work hard there's this weird thing with people and I've noticed this with people who are like in in positions of power yes worked four hours a day on that brind and then there's people who are like sitting there twiddling their thumbs all day for eight straight hours feet and it's rough but they're not really like thinking or any I'm just like stupid so like when it comes to math I'm like I don't how did I get his own how did you get the job well I did it when I was like eighteen 'cause my friend was like a fulltime payroll person and she was like do you want to be my assistant basically lazy in your life apples and samples are fantastic I love every day it's so good so when I started working there I love this place but like you transfer enough all of us has coming across as being slackers you and I really think about what we do I'm like we do work just because we laugh and smile while we do it doesn't mean we're not work and we chose to pick a that sounds rough I worked at restaurants and stuff it's the payroll office probably was the worst that I hated the most Hella boring because it was the most boring and I've done a lot of labor work that listen Joe Defensive I'm Jay passive see this get along best work ethic out of all three because Costco is to me a very happy place like when I walk into Costco even now get hard to love a grocery store it's my favorite thing grocery stores and then there's Costco because there's Sam four hundred people okay okay what was the what was the worst side Hustle I worked five years at a grocery store the bath so that would be the I worked without the grocery store so she knew is a hard worker grocery bagging went bitch I was a front end supervisor I just remembered you're not paying attention the whole time to the Petri dish that's what he told me he watches game of thrones don't you need without being said so everybody thinks they work hard and people do not like to be told that they're lazy or bad work ethic give them a shout out no I don't because I worked for years at a liquor store that's gotta be fine and worked in a payroll office I've one of my first job was at a costco shut that was some backbreaking work you get a discount though no you don't get anything the only my current job yeah because I like my current job love it other than the fact that I have to work with Chris rock fantastic.

I know you're new here so I just want to let you know about the gum drawer and you come over to my desk anytime you want you're welcome over here and you just go in that drew you don't even have to ask often five like bottles of the little thing where you shake them out with the fucking this just and there's there's all a variety of different flavors and brands and so I'm like crazy this is the greeter cater to the front of the line so that people will pull over and see the beautiful crops that's also true yes anyways but it hasn't come yet because they ordered to new desks to put where I'm currently set where the door is where I mean he's really he's a greeter so that makes sense August there was no cure what's and I be honest Chris I've never really heard you speak in that tone of voice I've never heard you like structure a sentence like that I'm having too much who is that it's not it's not weird it's not me no kind of quiet quiet it's really weird there's a lot of loud people everyone I'll give credit where credit is due there but I also give Shit Shit is still okay so shopping and I and I try to be try to be accommodating to new people because being like gum and he goes back to his computer and then the next day I come into work sitting on the island two words to me he asked this is Christian Democratic Oh you gotTa Watch your tone you thank you so much but I just I'm not into calm but you're so kind oh my God no I'm good was probably what I said good guys rude I'm good that's fair he's good well either way we now get we get buy we buy uh-huh and so then when he did flag down my attention offered me gum I kindly said Oh thank you but I I don't like I think I love you but I'm just calling it like chips just the fake telling that he just I'll do I'll do it alow my best wasn't there yet they so they sat me at Brian's desk who was on vacation that's why I was sat there tracks I know we're Brian the kids always weird shot right it's kind of like let me take you under my wick so I have this at my desk had this dry my desk it's full of guns in fact that's how fake it's like Oh my God thank you but actually no I don't like but to think strecker in today this is a we've got a we've got a menagerie twelve going on here the last I think it was with stalls in Bo in fact it's a rule don't ask just take because we're friends and we're family takes him what does he does he looks dead in the eye I think in all honesty is I like having an emphasis around to keeping in keep things interesting who is your nemesis it serious at an emphasis knew what about batches makes you feel like you need an MSI well while there's one thing is that it's all women almost yes sean you want to he's like gay guys not liking lesbians will I think it's because those type of gay guys are like very into like feminine eighty five women and so I hear Sean say Oh yeah there's two of us Dan and gum drawers you're saying you're totally even yeah totally twenty twenty special so I'm here trying to masculinity when you answer the door it was the way he said it was that it seemed like he thought only you know what it is is I'm I'm a massage in like fashion and being bitchy and being like you know like project runway you know when there's like the rude gay guys the Doorbell Rings and Sean answers the door and I'm sitting at my place by the door desk good Johnny Bananas Say oh I didn't know that that did kind of happen my defense he walked he didn't say I didn't know they let guys work here a gym and he said we don't get along it is very much like the Chapelle special that just came out were driving in the LGBTQ car the game is rising and the lesbians next and the and the game is the king no I mean of course but I don't think in that world of the bitchy Gay guy he really not bitch a lesbian particular I mean I have much I have many more EBI is kind of like is what he tried hard just like trying to fit in but like we know we've got some better ideas but like you guys have been around longer and your you know white men yeah is there I didn't know they let you work here as in straight men how many bananas no you were straight Oh you just read and cancel your John Interesting thing to say when there's five of US listen here's the thing when girls have had tension it's fucking terrifying like it's scary to be in it scared me dear it's awful but as we don't actually like we we play fun but hospital so I think even guys and I heard straight men and I thought wow I guess they're doing society does this thing counting gay men as real man the guys worked here right which many guys worked out yeah there's five is tour straight men three or game okay and then there's like twenty and project runway yeah I think that's the kind of person but then lesbians are like against all that so then like it'll be like lesbians being like Oh drag Queens are stupid fences with both because I love you both Oh so much and I just feel like I also I can't help Maria Person I love a little bit of tension in any given dynamic and for some reason we says that I'm a bigger lesbian she is she's kind of cherry myself in a lesbian lesbian haircut and that's a compliment I've lesbian haircut lake am clingy the first time I go on a date with two lesbians do that Oh my God joke that we bring you hold a second date in lesbian friends than game okay well maybe that's why we get along so famous layer so tell me what what's the deal with those types of bitchy in a long time than if you were there you would have taken my name Heo would I think actually is part of the problem is that about death spend the challenge here man he is in love Johnny Johnny Bananas Johnny Bananas is coming into the office yeah I don't yeah me too I feel like I'm about to have a heart attack at all times chemical dependency on coffee actually today was my first day in months with only one cup of coffee yeah but women it's like the Jabs zing Zang the under the stuff like right below served that makes me feel so when a gay Guy Oh you're just like it's kind of like the the straight white guy here but I don't think I classify in the world's way what world lesbians and gay men get lumped together as if they're going to have everything in common so when everything in common it gets real awkward Darren always says Darren Carp frequently on them it's never been on campus it's fantastic so at starbucks though if you order your drink it is always pretty much perfect a lot of gets twelve shots of espresso lying here nice coffee with twelve shots of Espresso all right if you've sat through this podcast have you anything you order literally anything give it to me so I will go in I will say I want Vinci Caramel Macchiato like okay that sounds normal with twelve shots so that I usually only drink half so it's only like six to eight shots a day plus the coffee I had her but also just do cocaine or just ask your friend let me a cigarette bed because of course this is all very small subsets in the these are also kind of stereotypes released this no different subdivisions and when you get enough stars it's like the rewards per and it's like a punch card essentially once you get enough coffees you aren't a free drink I'm going to get to one hundred fifty stars Taylor they will the gay culture but I'm aware of it because I'm like super woke so I will say is that sally well that was the worst thing I've heard he's got thank you so we get along great so I'm thrilled that you guys have a little bit of attention 'cause I'm here for it also will come to my desk and be like hey one going addicted to away I can never go back so for those of you who don't know a way is a suitcase company and the thing is is that their stuff is super high quality really high quality also very lightweight minor travel bags I'm like this stuff is heavy af it's also so inconvenient to roll my arm is GonNa fall off that's when I realized I totally our love design super-duper well but it's really affordable and the reason is is because they sell direct to consumer they cut the middleman out so they're really well known for their carry on they've got their six when I earned my free drink it's not like twelve shots day I'm not a millionaire it's time to take a quick break talk about one of our sponsors away girl you know I love regular carry on and then they're large carry on both are Tsa approved and originally I got one of their bags that you check it is the aluminum addition like biggest one they have and it is so aware fully aware did by doing it who I mean a straight white man came over that one we're taking credit for everything to do your best life oh gorgeous I feel rich when I travel but she didn't cost me an arm and leg so the bag is durable but lightweight they have these three sixty spin wheels so you can drag it behind you this Var okay you're about to be rewarded with a life hack starbucks these great people who don't like starbucks are like kidding themselves starbucks okay great so you're pretty like couldn't get any better free shipping on any way order within the contiguous US Europe and Australia for twenty dollars off a suitcase visit away travel dot com slash Taylor twenty and use my Promo Code Taylor Twenty during checkout again for twenty percent off a suitcase visit away travel dot com slash t of away when I was married we got some really nice luggage from our wedding and so I thought I was set for life with luggage and then I used to weigh in a bunch of trip and then when it went back to my like quote unquote like you know design right now so it is the best like food APP is what I mean to say so it's like it works it works exactly yeah I think it's better than seamless it works exactly like you would hope it would work something about coffee that I disagree with I would call your take on what a transition the segment awhile ago he's obsessed with I got confused and thought that he made it for you so then Chris Barnes came in and I literally did it with Chris Burns and show I told John over caffeinated I can't with it I have to get this is my go-to ordered charbonnet okay I get a grenade is not in eventing cup with xrays because on that kind of himself and me and then I've got I got my wires crossed I got a lot of balls in the air as we talked about earlier I get confused easily I'm an old person when you order your drink before all of the food are kind of flawed in knowing they all are annoying to use the service is great but they fuck up allure to zero and use Promo Code T. A. Y. L. O. R. Two zero during checkout so Taylor Ghaith that actually brings me to a question so you said okay you want a healthy team because that's the kind of Guy I am still making up for that old banana connor coffee sean drinks walk next to you can push it in front of you I put back on top of that everybody comes with like a dirty clothes laundry bag which I love because I hate my stuff touches my clean stuff a mix crazy and their carry on bags have a frigging charger in the bag. NFL The battery is adjustable so there's not going to be any hassle the airport you know is and I'm not being paid to say this the greatest APP on the planet like it works Rita's APP that again let me think I guess they're pokemon go people of that they go there all the look and feel like I literally like have a diary tack instantly or like Faint on the ground 'cause I'm like exact on actual but that went to straight guys of tension yeah don't fight each other they're gonNA walk right fucking billy goat avoid each other complete checking luggage or something like that and also there's cases are designed to last a lifetime so if any part of your suitcase does break away Stan customer service is going to arrange to have it fixed or replaced AC title but that's all I can handle their the iced coffee is so okay but if your complaint is that it's too often aided in coffee or say that's a problem I want four hours a week on the show for thirty minutes a week so get over it I'm very actually Chris Turns out as I said Chris good work ethic and it has a crack or I get math strew or it could just go hang out with Taylor and her carney that is my coffee order but it's only like once every couple of we I usually have to pay the fine but I had a headache or there anyway so here is the life hack for starbucks so if you go to starbucks frequently which I do I use their app the starbucks APP a direct quote everyone gives Chris the good stuff because he Chris helped him do the good stuff to the good stuff better human joy unpopular because I thought that it was for me here's what actually happened debut this is not about the gum popular opinion really is not my fault it's the bond the facebook page everyone's always contributing they're unpopular of me from the show saying that I was a topic in a thread on hey hey on your face was it nicer what does that mean I don't know okay good unfortunately they like him oh no they don't they don't know him usually it comes with three stop so you get a twelve quadruple starbucks were there forty-five minutes waiting for them to Paul twelve shots espresso and so I gave it I was Chris show made you would segment told volley Monday I'm nursing struggle he looks like so mad also he was gonna cry and punch me in the vagina and what's more a taste of my snippet of my life then you guys getting like an actual snippet of like wall Friday show on the Taylor Shekar show so we're GONNA do a couple of unpopular opinions he's like meth fridge like legit he was so upset he didn't even try to hide it which is so unlike Sean like he was like are you kidding me and then he said something taught some your fault crash on never get mad how is that my fault hace thought he did say though and I quote why does everyone give all the good stuff to Chris and now Sean as a whole this is like the extreme unpopular opinions we're GonNa do this like as we do offer Friday show but kind of like on the L. let him now you're not going to get the Oscar Award for unpopular opinions how will you go on the part of opinions and we've been doing it for flourish it's flourishing like Vaccinations are bad for you and like you people shouldn't get them literally Mike McCarthy on my literally she's on with this common boys you're probably lead Sean explainer he's going to have a corner Sean segment so go okay great the three rules to unpopular opinions the first one is there no bad opinion okay and opinions opinion he's gotTa bring stupid number two is not an unpopular opinion if it's a popular opinion Y or is it where would you rank it in the housewives Pantheon well it's not fair to do that I feel like because there's like Beverly Hills suggested you shine on me you refused to apologize shining gave this to me well no he made it for why does Chris get all the good stuff and I said I'm so sorry I'm so sorry I'll take it back it can be yours but wouldn't it be fun of Chris Paul's can tell Sean is on the show one two three for you when you get perfect yeah that's it's really easy to order anyway get your name right every time alone with this APP it's just you just have to justify your opinion don't just say it you have to believe it yet to tell me why it makes sense Seattle if everybody's up against you I need to know why you bring the opinion that you have and don't only Monday and Sean like look like he was going to for me to not fucking told you Chris is where all this time like I know so but actually people are really engaging with it I think it's fun so the thing is is this show is called taste oh Taylor it's a little taste to me okay I got it the third category I get myself killed almost every single right so you'll be good at this actually but like a thing that might get killed his if you said I August second Taylor you go third something that you think Chris needs more credit the real housewives of Dallas so good thanks so try Christmas is awesome yeah if you say like Christmas is the best holiday I'll be like yeah no shit tell me something I don't say Christmas sucks now now we're talking Yankee the number three he's like the bachelor that show every episode so far I take yalies still there and I don't understand that she's fighting she's calling her way back to the top Hugo Vicky just like I had to force myself so I only started this season watching this oh honey you got to go back go back because I'm caught up now I love so brandy over as something that you WanNa shed on because people like it okay last one this one's hard Taylor something that might get you killed by the it's such an unpopular opinion you can't play me which here for she'd love that he's literally like she's a Stepford wife but like jokes on her almost none of them work or have he's really good at unpopular opinions he's great to have around I always intended to have everybody participate I just wanted to be there the first time I'm sorry your child why are like Dm Pals I fucking love her so are you caught up I'm no I haven't started the season yet what does she how she's so good okay good always something that happened there so did it when they look back and then she like so something happened I don't know nobody listening knows what you're talking about because yeah which I'm here for which I love Mommy Strikes Dallas he's right it's it's like it's so sneaky good the first season the honest the first season was atrocious the head start better because people call in to vote on every week Chris very frequent this is true young is a Goddamn whine spread sir okay it's good it's delicious it is absolutely what is that actually a wine spritzers New York are like that's hop I think yes definitely out say Atlanta most popular Elian I think is podcast with everybody is talking about cats and none of them are as good as this one so what are you going to do I mean girls I mean I'm here for it I'm giving Michelle when did you say it's not it's underrated known talks about don't watch I thought I've watched like two episodes and I thought it was real bad it's so good tell me because no one's and Fox lie just wanted to clarify so I always like Chris go first because he needs to go first because his opinions are always the worst okay the first category is something that's underrated okay it's something that you write something that you want to like okay something that is overlooked something please don't back to his time with these three I don't have to worry about that with you guys so this time we're going to do three categories of popular opinion.

categories and decide which of each others we like the Best Stein Great League that one definitely is not the way that category because it was so unpopular others I I'm so sick of people over their bodies and their beauty they're just gonNa have said you know what if Kate had married the prince of don't read Harry Potter for the reason I would get obsessed ever now because depressed that I couldn't go to hogwarts like I really a billion people worldwide lack access to glasses okay that means that fifteen percent of the global population can't effectively learn or work which is crazy because about one of our sponsors war parker so where we parker for those of you who don't know they are basically a new concept in eyewear the company was really started because almost one in March with me okay I don't read Shawn because when I was seventeen I got hit with a math bomb so you know what leave it listen I I expected to serve this is specifically to me do and a lot of people like you what do you want people to feel left dress up in Robie billion their wants and the dress was out but that's an under the Harry Potter people don't give them respected deserve you go I I mean I just Taylor I don't care they're real change your receipts look at some old photos beyonce's about Jimmy J. LO booty these are booties houses were vetted seven hundred years ago so we should be on top of this for close friends who are literally the founders behind Parker got together and they're like why can't we create boot leggings plant them in an apple orchard they look like every other Jessica Stephanie Michelle Long Long All right my over my recent trip down to Disney world and Harry Potter Land Okay if this is about Harry Potter I'm GonNa okay quality eyewear at like literally a revolutionary price point and so- Vala were we parker was born and they nail it more Parker to the hack on the but you can ride is going on I two that Thunder Bay that's my underrated who's GonNa win this one worby parker dot com slash Taylor and order your free home try on you can even take a quiz that's going to help you find pair that's perfect for you I actually just recently got the the lion king is totally is the worst Disney movie of our lifetime it's not good it's a good one blue light filtering lenses are also available which is so important I'm telling you my girlfriend recently was having like some serious I pain and the doctors realized it was like a blue light lewd prescription lenses now my favorite part of Parker is their free home try on program so I'm a bit of a hermit I don't leave my apartment so even though there are beautiful and the shoe so protect those little papers and if you have an Iphone X. guess what you can download worry Parker's APP where you can literally use their brand new virtual try on aww overweight I'm so sick and Filton call her I call her Mitha because that's how little I care about her Butler girl regulars just regular old girls Yeah Gimme a car dashing Gimme a Markle Gimme Gimme Gimme anyone give me honestly remember ladies Bud Light just alle fucking wires overrated with an with an like an overpayment put a north face on him some I started ninety five dollars including prescription lenses and lenses also include anti-glare anti scratch coatings so they really got you covered and now I'm so excited about this -nology which allows you to try on glasses sunglasses seen realistic color texture and size of each style using gesture foam for the free home triumph program which means you can order I glass and prescription glasses industry and the way they're able to make great quality things diffraction with price to the consumer because they cut out the middleman their glasses start at ninety five dollars are I would prefer to sit on my butt at home and just order online but it's kind of tricky with glasses 'cause it's kind of like how will it fit my face hence the free home try on program aided opinion okay popular opinion and this one is probably going to have some people coming for me and that's fine and this is also related to Leaney Sunglass in jet block it super chic and I don't think I would have ordered them it had I not taken the quiz so I highly recommend that quiz because it will lead you in the right direction and again is a fucking lion if he kills another lion I feel like he gets to be the top line that's how the jungle works why are they going by our rules raided thing in the world is the Middleton Sisters beauty and everyone decides to me it's because you're jealous I'm not jealous I think they look just like so you order five pairs of glasses you try them on for five days there's no obligation to buy any of it it ships free and include the prepaid return shipping label so you just go to Taylor and now back to the podcast I don't care about the lives of animals okay Oh furthermore I feel like scar deserved I mean the here but I don't care about talking animals the lions weird for someone that just went to fucking Disneyworld for a week what the animals weren't talking while he was there assassination fucking jungle because this shitty leaders they overthrew scars ugly in in Disney ugly people I game of thrones I think is pretty stupid stupid what I did I don't get the hype see I don't like him I'm like get over it I was talking to are you kidding me all animals we know gay guys it's time to incident the only scene in the movie is that's any good is when he re meets up with the hot girl lion all Nala and they like kind of the kind of fuck five pairs of glasses and then try them on for five days with no obligation to buy just go to worry Parker dot com slash T. A. Y. L. O. R. again that's Worby Parker dot com slash. NFL get his filed brain believed that he killed his own father did you watch the movie then he finds the first mere cat he runs into like you're my new dad autodata rans they become friends and actually he doesn't say your minute daddy avoids their friendship for quite a that's why you love the Lion King so much again you just came back from seventies and Disney so I don't want to have this conversation with you Harry Potter I want him watching TV relaxing. You know so I don't WanNa be I don't want to have to like take adderall to pay attention to a move so you like watching things that challenges ones had off yelling in a different language subtitles you could put him on so if I can't like honestly I can't be drinking a glass of wine and maybe like getting a little bit related so I don't know how much this is going to get me killed because I'm just like a really good person so I don't have those opinions but because like I love dogs listen nobody loves a dog more than me and if you have a dog in your home you should take good care of that dog did you tried how hard I I got like ten minutes into the first episode Graduate Fucking to the incest I got to them Parkinson's actually good or is she rolling her eyes kind of watchable because the music the circle there's actually but yeah I don't but like there are lots of dogs out there that I don't care about and like I don't know why we need to worry about like Psalm book there's too many dogs no I do like challenging thing time to time game of thrones you tried watching you think it's it's just me maybe I'll try it again but I just is that like if you donate your money to a cause that supports like animals like dogs cats you should check yourself everybody's just like we need to like make sure that the dogs have better lives so let me like donate money to this like blink blink. PCA and I'm over here like there's people minute in the movie yeah here the whole minute and then Timonium Poobah force themselves you have to force myself to be around you hands you put it in different hairstyles makeup techniques chores all fake I don't care about giving you so I'm Gonna I'm GonNa pay you back and I'm going to say the most over I think that might have driven Chris to a dark place where he's brought the snow up in my headphones I don't care I'm Taylor are you going to say something that you shouldn't do you WanNa go last now how do you go from literally singing oh I just can't wait to be king to your dad dies you're about to be king any flee the jungle he just said hang around the batches office to and game of thrones going on it was like I finally found my moment 'cause I was so up on game of thrones that was like okay let's talk about this Ad Nauseam and weepy dogs that are all like with like one I yeah that's shit sure if my my money's going to that dog okay I'll pay some money otherwise he shot and you wonder why people okay I was just saying by the way you will probably enjoy your wedding more if you don't act like it's the most important it's ever happened on the hours trying to free people trying to free that wedding was fucking great realize but I mean I was talking to my mom so that wasn't so much fun and I mean I love going to a wedding I'm not gonNA lie kind of wind did you have on your couldn't wait to be king you please the jungle because scar tells in the hill for murdering his father police the jungle because he's a little bitch now he's alert tells him to run dying like don't have clean water and stuff so my unpopular opinions going to get me killed is like save your money your money I thought what are you know what I don't care what you say next you win it looks like he's a couple of crack you wouldn't take me back and he'd be like rude about it like all blow is a little bit I think I should go last trouble I wanna get with and this one actually really believe and I shouldn't say it out loud is one of the things that you should only say to the people that you like care about me aww is overrated okay I can't disagree with that okay are we ready for the final cabinet Chris tell something that's going to get you killed okay by the audience go into like I felt like the beast when everybody to go on the Disney theme whenever he comes in there like what does feels awful people I've never seen Moore hate and the opinion that you have well I did tell you I want to be like a twenty percent parent like my dad like I just WanNa be involved twenty percent she's the one that wants them more like she's them freedom for free from their own pressure on your own precise day that's what I got married and divorced in divorce exact how much fun was that people like animals more than they like people I know they do and also people like animals more than they like people also need to check which brings me to my popular opinion I hate everybody whatever you do don't say anything about dogs because I'm already regretting saying I said fine my in popular opinion is that I'm going to regret having my children Aldrin and not having kids for her to deal breaker so we're doing this shit but oh God I am so the hard I don't think that you were going to feel that way once you have them and I also think there's a hot I think he was the hotter of into it he kinda has like he's so skinny matthew all my money which is I really don't like sharing my money and also here's the real kicker guess what they're going to really take from me Taylor's love and affection going to be more of the father figure why because they're building to be a mother shut up our opinion that's GonNa get me killed is that if your wedding day was the greatest day of your life you've accomplished nothing remember what I said on Instagram I got uh-huh waterfall can you feel the love tonight and that one it kind of move during that when I saw the theaters to you need to get your head at a Disney I'm not rushing this like it's hurt it's like again chanel she's not asking me every day what's the next Alabama I'm going to buy so like this is her financial I think GonNa say donated until I q matter you know it's like some sort of they're lucky they got that song so you your automobile opinion as the host benches brides people pay too much stock in weddings.

"Hello everyone and welcome to the inaugural the very first phantasmagoria show know number was your host steve foley and scotland. And he's got a home. How are you sir. So this is our maiden voyage is we're christening it the uss phantasmagoria. A halloween factor. One we have a. We have a facebook group of of a bunch of friends that just talk about all the stuff. We love music movies. Tv shows podcasts. What whatever the case may be mm audio visual cornucopia 's absolutely and we've had you know what this would be cool to just get on you know maybe a couple of times a week maybe every day at kind of talk about the topics of the day. We basically posed in our group which is usually just news articles that kind of typical fancy and so i talked to scott news. I'm down to do it so here. We are well in the group's been going for a couple of weeks now and it's been really interesting. I know steve posts on there The more relevant goof off and post movie mashups and music videos and things. That are just fun to tap your toes to and kind of tickle your nostalgic fancies absolutely so we're kinda We're doing the at this at the doing show podcasting or anything like that so we can kind of your bear with us as we work out the kinks. And you know we're happy to take any suggestions you might have In the comments below go hadn't league comment let us know what you're thinking. I like again subscribe. do that. Definitely head over to the The facebook group and if there are any ideas of things that you want us to specify and talk about in deeper death let us know we'd be happy to do it. Share it with your friends if they like this kind of stuff as well absolutely you can requested join our private group in the link below in the description below. I guess we'll just start right off with our first topic of the day and that will be the star trek with hard teaser. Trailer and poster to coming at you whether you like it or not so the. The poster was puzzling to me. I don't understand it. I guess i i can see what the i guess we're trying to do is kind of the emblem but man. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I know you have a different take. I do think that it is reminiscent of the star trek. Four poster that had the the crew it was a painted poster a surrounding the golden gate bridge. I do sit kind of think that they're working around that. But i kinda see it as being a production back in business for los angeles situation. I really don't know what's going on with the plot of the show q. Is in it john. Delancey is back which is great one of my all time favorite star trek characters and Patrick stewart Still a robot and gerry ryan's back. It looks like they're all back. I didn't see rafi right off the hot. But i was looking around it again and i saw that. She was in the background. It's always nice to see alison pill have liked her since the newsroom. And scott pilgrim The teaser was much more interesting than the poster. Yeah the poster was confusing. Yeah so i came. Kind of the reaction to the posters was the same as robert. Meyer burnett what the hell is going on here. But as far as the teaser obviously cube being back is huge for a tugs on all the nostalgia feels I'm not. I'm not a huge fan of either discovery or card but i watched them both. I i'm not gonna watch them right. It's just star starwars province. I'm not gonna watch. I don't like to use the phrase hate watch but to a certain extent. It is crying manifesto. It is crying in space when it comes to the discovery and picard i found it started off strong. Been sort of fell apart in the last couple of episodes Sort of and also. Well i could go off. About the the season finale of picard for days just about the copy paste armata fleets that they had and i thought it was kind of disappointing. But as as as you've already In incited or Invoked the viceroy of similitude Robert meyer brunettes I i'm never going into star trek show saying i don't wanna like it. I always wanna lake star. Trek want good star trek. And so even when it's not that great even when i get sparks rain as long as it reminds me of star trek. I'm somewhat happy when i first saw the i. I think the first two episodes were free for a star. trek discovery. Actually liked it. I love the look of it It wasn't until we started kind of getting into the star trek. This of the series that i was like wait a minute. This isn't star trek. This doesn't feel like star trek to me. This feels like some somebody trying to make a star trek thing. That's not star trek. But that's neither here nor there at for me for me. I like the visual. Kind of look of the of the production picard on the other hand i really in this regard. I just wanted to see prepared back on screen so that got me right away. The i didn't. I didn't care for the overall story. Arc in picard season. One a few things. I did like about it and that's fine So i'm hoping. I'm hoping they're very hope. They're telling a more cohesive story season two That actually makes sense. It looks like there's going to be a little time travel variant or you may be plucking card out of his current time. I am in putting him in his rag tag crew somewhere else. It looks like maybe in our time but that still remains to be seen which could be very interesting. Well and the changes to seven of nine. Just seen in the teaser. She's not a bore anymore. she got released. She doesn't have the visual implants. And also the my favorite episode of picard for season was when they show up on nepenthes and they see reicher in troy and that brought back all of the memories of them interacting and it was it felt like picard in reicher and troy interacting off-duty albeit. But still. it made me feel good watching that and it did recapture a lot of it. And i'm hoping that seeing john patrick stewart sheriff screened together is going to have that same spark and q. Hopefully he'll pop up subsequently throughout the season. Now it does look like that. Chemistry is still there just from the little kind of clip. That we got in the teaser interested to see how much of a role Cute plays in season two. And if there's any other surprise cameos that they have in in their back pocket well and also died. I don't know how deep into production they are. I know that they had a couple of problems with the The virus of unknown international origin. And so with all of that I don't know if they will. They could possibly inject something because again. I know that with independent episode. That was sort of a jonathan frakes last minute. We need something that feels like next and so that that did inject it on. There have been rumors of Lavar burton possibly michael dorn. But everyone's a little tight lipped although there was a little. I think that there was an interview. That john delancey did. And he said that he was interacting with brent. Spiner patrick stewart a few weeks back in so we could be data. Could be back. We don't know it's all rampant speculation. One can only hope well regardless. I don't know if i'm looking forward to it right. So i'm not bated breath about this shelf and it is a twenty twenty shows on not mistaken. So it's kind of early to even be getting teasers. But that's fine probably about seven months out because i think it when i think when picard Season one premiered premiered at the end of january in twenty to do the same thing that that'd be great for those fans. They'll they'll have it at the beginning of the year. Not have to wait too long. And i don't know how many episodes probably based on season one would probably be ten to twelve but Yeah i i am looking forward to as i said i just wanted to be good and if i don't like it i'll let you know next year. I'm sure we'll do. We'll do some recaps on our on this show about. Oh they're going to be people who will not be able to escape me talking about it whether they like it or not and that goes with all the other things that are coming out I don't know if we have any teasers for We don't have any teasers for prodigy. i don't know. I think there. I don't think there's been one for season two for Lower deck's it could be wrong And discovery should be the first show that we're we're getting so we are blessed to after a drought pike. Show the that is still going on. That's that's actually filming in toronto They we've had. I'm outside of that locale And there have been production issues just again with the current state of the world and so they had some stutter stops and False starts but apparently production is back going on and Yeah that should still becoming i. We shall see. I'm looking forward to that. As being more episodic and not as arc based on a serialized but we will we will see. And i'd like to see that crew interact with each other And not necessarily be hampered by discovery. Yeah i'm very interested in that. Hopefully that will be good to like like you said early. I want i want it all to me. Good whether we get that or not is a different question. Ought yes. i'm going to be positively frustrated or negatively. Angry right by agree second Second topic on our on our list. Today is zack. snyder's army of the dead top streaming sharp for debut weekend. So is that more of a situation where. I didn't hear a whole heck of a lot of positive reviews on army of the dead. But that is sort of with zack snyder. The hot off the tail off the the release of this night or justice league right was that more curiosity based on that was an interest in All what's his name. The guy in david teesta. That's the man yes. I think it's a little bit of everything right but it's he got up the got. A snyder bats absolutely. And i think everybody you know it looks. I think for most people the trailers and stop it like okay. This is going to be zach matters. Zombie another zack snyder. Zombie movie awesome. Let's and we're all in. And then i think people watched it and you know where where you come down. You know good bad or indifferent that than that kind of went from there. So those are of the good better indifferent art indicative of the debut. Numbers is it just how many households actually watched a portion of the show. And i think it's like i think it's like two minutes so i if if you watch the the the show for two minutes you you're considered you know you watch your viewer. Yeah is on screens kind of thing. The can i have not seen it. I was a big fan of zack. Snyder's donna the dead. I think that would still qualify as being my favorite acts night or movie and but when when the reviews started coming in i'm really big fan of the cast garrett delahunt To taro dave petits name. But i do like dave teesta. I heard that it was overwhelmingly. Zack snyder so i saw the film i there's parts of it. That are good. The overall by overall score be low I didn't think it was a great movie. There's a lot of stupid shit happens in the movie. Although it's pointed out it's only liquors stupid shit happens but i've been like really stupid things that just yeah i in. I heard about like direct to'real choices that were sort of like now cut now cut to the next scene. Okay cut now and it just kept going and going and going and it was to showcase some of the more gruesome aspect is there are there are there are some some scenes that are overly long for no apparent reason other than to be overly long. Look at me. But that's kinda zach ciders things I don't fault too much for that. I think the the the movie would have benefited from him. Not shooting so if he had hired a dp. I think that the movie would have been A little better. i'm not. I'm not a hundred percent on this. But did you end. Phil talk about it over on we did. We didn't get a chance to review it so this is kinda my first time actually reviewing so what do you think. What did you think of it. But i thought like. I said i didn't want overall. It's a thumbs down for me right okay. I don't like you put numbers. But i will. I get like six okay. Five and a half or six. It's right in there for me. there's it's it's it's watchable movie. It's it's not garbage it's just. There's some wishes it happen. We'll put that on the back of the jess not garbage a so it's not garbage but it's look it's his accent or film people are gonna love it. They're gonna hate people are gonna say it was it was a you know is a fun time popcorn movie right so there's been a house. I'm sorry to kind of go ahead. Go ahead file. He's absolutely. I think one of the if not the greatest visual storyteller working today. So there's that there's always gonna be pretty to look at his films mostly. Is it better than sucker. Punch or worse than sucker. I'm a sucker punch fan. So i'm not the right person to ask. I know the perfect person ass or worse. I'm in the minority I think a general movie goers. I think most people did not like the movie but i thought it was good. First time i saw i hated. It's guts second time. I thought i kind. I kind of figured out where it was going. And i was okay with it but i know that there are some people who passionately low that i appreciate it despite its flaws absolute john. Gm shows up. I'm just happy jon. Hamm shows up a segment. We should just talk about john. Who have the jon hamm segment whenever he's available graphic pop up young. It's halftime all hammer. Time it there. We are so yeah. And then there's the entire they're supposed to be a media universe surrounding so that's where things got shaking for me. Because i didn't obviously he sets up this universe in the movie and you can see kinda where he might be taking it for. The animated and live action tv shows. I i just. I don't know for me. It's gonna take something extraordinary to get me to come on board with those things. Well okay. So here's my. Here's my vision for zack. Snyder's army of the dead expanded universe. I want i want like a top down old school like super nintendo game. Where you like kind of like smash tv where you just go. And you're running two rooms throughout vegas and spin around and shoot things if they can release that on like playstation store or microsoft's and if it's good then maybe i'll get invested but as of right now i haven't even seen the movie. Let's let's figure it. I'll i'll figure it out once we get there probably check out the movie. I mean it's where it's worth a watch. And i think the guys over at red letter media said that it was a fairly a fairly poor remake of aliens right down to well. I'll just. I don't want to spoil anything but it's it's you there's certain shots and characters character design that like wow is a i think cinema gulp said is i think i stole this from cinema. Go sargus but they said. Is james cameron get royalties not miss a beat you. So we'll see what happens. We'll see what happens with I think a. I think if you're if you're if you're a fan of of snyder then you'll probably like it. You like it enough maybe to check out some of the other In universe media. That's coming and yeah. I guess i guess what it comes down to. It is a zombie movie. Zombie heist movie that. It's reminiscent of aliens and it does sound interesting. And hey there are rainy days so if you find yourself on a rainy sunday and you're going down right for a three hour movie. I dunno i the runtime not three hours but it's a long movie. It's the next up on the docket is j. j. Abrams is developing a ufo documentary series for showtime networks. Now usually when i hear. Jj aid rooms You know. I i pretty much turn it off i. I'm not a huge fan of his writing. I don't like his mystery boxes. I don't like particularly what he's done with star trek and star wars. But that being said he does. Tv very well. He's proven himself to do tv very well. Fringe is one of my favorite shows. Are alias was awesome. He does good work on tv. Felicity was my favorite area. That that absolutely makes sense got so but this is interesting at a documentary series produced by vijay or or developed by. Jj i don't know how involved he's going to be in it but that sounds interesting. I believe it's a four episode. Drop if i'm not mistaken and there's not a lot of info yet News it popped up today. Not thought it'd be interesting to get your take on jayjay and then you know what you think about a ufo docu series or documentary series. Well according to comic book Slash tv is a comic book comic book slash tv. I should i never go to rehearsals so anyway it says i with the clandestine. Influence of the american government. Luke lucrative private companies in the military may have in shielding the truth behind extraterrestrial phenomenon to further their own. Agendas it sounds interesting And also if it is loosely based on the realities of the ufo sightings that we have currently going on it. Yeah it's an interesting reflection of current events no matter how you view those current events in. Hey come on you. F os alien spaceships government agencies. What's not to like exactly and we thought with it being only four episodes Starting to air on showtime on sunday august eighth. I it'll be. It'll be good to see just a four hour block as opposed to something where j.j. Abrams has to finish something because that's usually where he falls apart. I don't really wanna talk about the rise of skywalker. Let's k. great But i usually enjoy watching j.j. abrams until he's clearly just wants to cut out early on a friday afternoon and hit a patio. Like it's just like why can't just finish it first and then you can go jj That's my opinion. I like i liked. The force awakens until i realized that it was basically just a cover song of new hope or star wars and echoes and it absolutely has echoes not movie. And that's fine. I have no. I have no problem with that. In terms of the beginning if you wanted to reintroduce star wars to a new generation who had been soured by the prequels. I think that it did its job. It's just it's sort of again. It was a great beginning. And then then then the other two thirds of that trilogy came out. And if you haven't seen them congratulations. Yeah much like the second movie. While the second do i sort of i am i am. I'm a flip flop when it comes to The last jet. I hated it. I loved it. I kinda like it. I- begrudgingly respect it. I don't like it. i'm i'm i'm both sides of the tennis when it comes to it. I don't have the burning feelings that i had for it before. And and i certainly don't have burning feelings for it now it's always good to see mark. Hamill luke skywalker at least a close approximation But the big one like for me in terms of jj Like super eight adul And i have no problems with the first star. Trek star trek. Oh nine. I'm fine with but i do not like in the darkness at all so When with his producing efforts. I don't really. I don't really hold him. To account is the producer It's more the the writer director that i hold in higher regard although jj does bear some responsibility in everything he touches unfortunately yes. Yeah but neither here nor there. I guess We'll see how that docu series does treat. Yeah oh yeah color. Me intrigued aliens and government. Organizations are my gam like it even if we're even if it's content well it's not it's a docu series so it's not going to be men in black but hey just make sure that there's a little bit of levity. Don't don't make it all down and shade right. Yeah we'll see we'll see if it's if it's if it's like a reenacted or if it's just footage but either way i think it'll be interesting to see i guess it will be interesting to see now before we move onto the next piece of business that we got here I did wanna say in sad. News w k rpm cincinnati's frank bonner passed away I was a huge fan of wjr. Kid i still wanna get the box at after being tangled in legal disputes over the soundtrack of a radio station from the seventies who I really i want that to be part of my collection I love that show The opening theme the closing credits are two of my favorite songs from television of all time and Frank bonner you have you have impressed upon the entertainment industry. Thank you so much for your service sir. I will see you next week. Absolutely good eulogy as it. Were scott thank you for that i actually. I think my favorite episode is still the turkey drop episode god. I swore that i thought that turkeys could fly. It is it is great yet he came back for. wpro The news the did a reboot of it in the late eighties early nineties. And he was back for that as well and so Yeah and he. He was just a character actor who popped up on television sitcoms all over the place. I if i'm discounting any dramatic work that he did i apologize. I'm just pointing out the highlights. That i was most pleased with when it came to mr bonner and younger viewers. That may not have watched. Wpa cincinnati will recognize him from saved by the bell was he can say by the was in saved by the bell. It's quite possible. As i said he popped up in the sitcoms throughout the eighties and nineties And it was always hades that guy. It's kind of like when gordon jump. Where mr karlsson showed up in like I hate to say the different strokes episode. But also i think he played Maggie's mom on growing pains and length. The cast is the if you don't know the cast of wpa cincinnati. I would say you probably do. Just don't know it right okay to our next topic. Which is the critics have first reactions are out for black widow. Yes so now. This obviously highly anticipated black. Widow movie from marvel Obviously got got pushed. Because of the pandemic are i like social media reactions route out and we can go through a few real quick Brandon davies. Are david saying a black widow is one of marvel's best solo films. Start to finish. The movie is great. Excellent surprises emotional character. Moments that ass action and scarlett johansson finally gets to poor everything into the role Director kate shoreland nailed it bravo and i hope that's true. I'm looking forward to Looking forward to seeing scar joe as black widow pre snap Like spoiler for endgame. It doesn't go well for her But i am looking forward to seeing it. And i thought she was great but i am also looking forward to having a little bit classic classic black widow as opposed to side black widow. I hope it is. I hope it is good in. This isn't just hype train again with everything lately. A little cautious. I'm going to hold. I'm going to hold a little. But i do hope that everyone is Is impressed And feels that it's heartfelt speaking of impressive in heartfelt a leash grasso. Black widow shows exactly why natasha romanoff was the glue. That held the vendors together. Shades of john wick fight scenes and inventive action sequences wrapped in a heartfelt and poignant story about family. And how the world treats girls excited to see elena. Carry the torch. Yeah that's very interesting. That's a good one. Megan damore says this took me by surprise but black widow managed to make me cry Not a big crier. In general she says. I think the only other marvel moment that got me. was tony stark's death. I won't reveal what happens but one black widow seen really open the floodgates for me bring tissues. She said as she goes on to say Is great at building fun larger than life characters but florence pugh and yelena below. I think it is Is an absolute standout. Barma fans will adore. I walked away from the movie excited about her future involvement in the mcu. She'll be an instant fan favorite. Yeah florence pews amazing. And and if you haven't seen fighting with my family It's an amazing film that nobody really watched. And so i suggest everybody to to everybody With my family as as you can working. I think you can get it on most of the streaming services. Now you can obviously rent it probably two or three bucks. But but yeah i think i think it made the on amazon prime Maybe netflix you have to. You'll have to check. i wrote it. Down jenner yeah. Yeah jenna bush said i love black widow and it made me and it makes i. Oh i loved black widow and it makes me angry scar. Joe deserve this film. Long ago i loved everyone in it but it bothers me so much. That marvel waited so long scar. Joe was amazing as always florence pugh. I've loved in everything. I've seen her in and continue to do so she go. Oh that was one of two. But it doesn't look like she goes on to get to him too. Oh she now. She likes she liked jennifer. Jennifer bush liked it. Good for new. I do understand why people are upset that it was like. Why did they make the black widow moving now. I do understand it but it's sort of no matter what your feelings on. Captain marvel having film that takes place in the nineties but was obviously released before games though in two thousand seventeen I'm fine with that shuffling of the chronology and so you can slide it in there and as long as it fits with the rest of the narrative. Well i think there's a point. John campy makes this point in. It's a good point that black widow and hawkeye not being superpower. They're just regular human beings with extraordinary abilities. I it's hard to craft a whole movie around those characters. I think if you're marble Obviously they they did it. But i think if it would've tried it early on it. It may not. it may have been a misfire. I think we kind of have to earn it with with natasha n. We absolutely did. Maybe it could have come a few years earlier. But i think maybe it works she. I think it works where it is We'll have to see a movie but of course art. I'm not. I'm not really. I don't mind that it's kind of out of order with the chronology. I don't have to see everything in a row go but i think that there is a little bit. There is added tension of watching a movie and not knowing where the character is going to end up Perhaps a little solo. And it's like. Well i i know what happens to that individual But i suppose it's it's not the destination it's the journey and again. If you get more black widow i can't. I can't shake a stick at that. Yeah i agree. Keep geek vibes nations as black widows. Great action spy thriller with some unexpected surprises. The famous ron emotional. Florence and scarlet thrive together onscreen by david. Harbour is a scene stealer. Scarlet goes out on top and what might be her final outing as a titular character. I'm glad someone finally shouted david harbour. I was wondering if he was in this movie. But i'm yeah i'm looking. I'm i've liked david harbour i. I was never much of a stranger things fan. But i've liked him in when he shows up like when he pops up in quantum of soul of i'm happy he was probably for his brief blink. And you'll miss it role in uh suicide squad. Yes that was my favorite role as and he's he's fantastic. And i am looking forward to him being a crimson dynamo or alexi. Yeah lexi romanov a. I can't remember the kathy. Sorry no i could be completely wrong. There there goes my geek card and even even seeing what the taskmaster is going to be liked to finally get an onscreen taskmasters interesting. And also you're going to have echoes of the rest of the avengers based on their powers here pair nemov Kind of touches on. I think what you were talking about earlier. The doug black widow a great deal was kind of worried about watching the story unfold. Knowing what's to come in in game that might diminish the stakes. That wasn't the case. Okay this is a kind of prequel story that feels bound to enhance other installments of the mcu. I do love when that happens when you can watch afflicted actually retroactively makes makes everything a little more interesting better So i'm watching. I remember not being completely totally jazzed about iron man to and then as the mcu progressed and things were called back heck even an end endgame when they they call back to thor the dark world. It's thank you for making sort of the black sheep of the family. Feel more included. You can come and sit at the table. Yeah yeah. I like perry and peres usually on the mark. So that's a good. That's that's a good sign kinda alleviate any fears that it it. Kind of diminishes the stakes. Because we were were her character ends up. I'm glad that's not the case. And so yeah. It seems like roller coaster very popular situation hard hitting brett white says that black widows a hard hitting romp with thrilling action sequence including a fantastic cartridge and the kind of vibrant performances. That makes the mc such a special place to visit. It left me wanting to campaign for another black movie or black widow movie so some things will never change awesome. Well i mean look. You can't have a a spy thriller without a good car chase. Oh yeah i mean. That's kind of a pre breakfasting so but apple because of the release of all these movies after having sort of a drought of twenty twenty When you say spy thriller and car chase. I just want no time to die in my balls. I know i'm excited for scarlet by which we're not gonna stop black widow like i am. I want i want my bond i. That's the spy thriller. I want absolutely So before we go. There's a couple of physical media things. I wanted to bring up. A one is right now. I just got this right before we went on air. Lord of the rings trilogy. Four k blu. Ray box is cheaper than ever. So right now on. I believe right now you can grab it on amazon for sixty bucks after learning what percent off deal and ten dollar ninety eight bonus coupon that you need to manually click to activate so if you're if you're looking to get that the lord of the rings trilogy in four k. That box set is about is about thirty dollars off. If i'm doing my mouth at math. But but that's i it's a it seems like a really good deal saw the four k and especially. I'm curious if those are the extended cuts see lord of the rings forte. Blu ray box set includes nine six three ds each for the fellowship of the ring the two towers and the return of the king. Naturally much of these discs will be loaded with special features. We expect to see plenty of blue radios. It doesn't say we'll have to click on it. I guess go see extended an theatrical fantastic so for sixty bucks. You can't go wrong long. yeah. I mean that's a great deal and then in in other heavens in other physical media we got the columbia classics four k collection volume two. Now i wasn't even familiar with volume one but based on this. I'm going to have to go back and check that out. Anatomy of a murder with atmos. Sound oliver the a one thousand nine hundred. Yeah with atmos taxi driver or as i like to call it the prequel to joker moose striped hurting. Hey sense and sensibility social network but those are solid movies. Yeah no those are fantastic. Each slow include new special features plus legacy material and it. If you haven't seen the box it's it's it looks really cool. Eight columbia box at so. I was unfamiliar with the first one to So i will go back and check that out and see what movies are around there. And maybe we'll bring that to you in a future phantasmagoria definitely absolutely those are good movies. I like when they week. We get these boxes that have cut a curated. Really good movies from these From these studios. What do you think. Oh i i just to be able to bring the legacies of the studios to the forefront Again this is Surprising to me. Just because i haven't thought about oliver in such a long time. I grew up on that flick and watched it probably more than i should have as a kid once. That's fantastic strikes. I if they remastered stripes into four k. I need that. I want that role. I mean warmly and then even with just to be able to have the The prestige pictures as well liked taxi drivers sense and sensibility those Not not the taxi driver is a period piece. But just a a record. Four k representation of the seventies and then a costume drama with scents and sensibilities. It's nice that they have a full A wide variety from the studio and in top that up at the social network which the fabulous film. Yes absolutely. it's so finci. But i'm glad i'm glad you brought the The the physical media stuff to to my attention. I'm a huge fan of that stuff. I like having the library With the age of tinkering and rebranding and adding Adding torrential guidance warnings at the beginning. I like having the actual film and having the original vision hack. I even have the the the non anamour fic- original star wars trilogy on dvd. Now it's not the best. But i'm glad i have it and have access to it absolutely I i'm not a huge collector of Into the four k. I do have. I do remember collection of dvd's though that i am proud of you know but collection i have so i kinda keep my that and we'll keep doing that on on feature shows. Will you know if we find cool deals will bring him to you and you know maybe if you know. He's a different releases will let you know you know what's coming out and you know win. Look forward to now. This is actually coming out If by mistake in nine fourteen september fourteen september fourteenth having a little ways to go you can probably pre-order it right now. I would say more than likely. Yeah anyways that's it. That's kind of what we got today. Anything else that you'd like to talk about before we wrap things up. No i don't think so we're just wanted to a if you guys are interested in other channels and you want to check out other perspectives. Yup steve doing other show. There's going to be a review of loki coming up. Yeah absolutely so. The black hours and steve show.

SO Unbecoming Episode 18: Writer, Marla Bautista

"Hello and welcome to episode eighteen of so unbecoming. I'm Jamie Musk off. And as we're getting closer to the holidays I just WanNa say a special. Thank you to everyone who standing watch out there and uniform and all of you who are key things together on the home front. I appreciate your sacrifices and hard work every day and I'm so grateful to produce PODCASTS INSERVICE to you. I listened to a podcast yesterday by Michelle Berry Franco called thought leadership school and immediately think of the conversation. I'm about to share with you today with the incredible about Teesta. Marlin is an army spouse a mom a writer and she's all about leading from her own story when I had this conversation with Marla. Awhile back I really thought I need to do so unbecoming the after show because she and I talked for a long time after I stop recording about the things she shared during the interview. I know you're going to be inspired when you hear her too. So let's get to my conversation with writer Marla Teesta so welcome. I'm so happy that we're able to talk today. Give us a little bit of background on you. Tell us your name and where you're from where you are now and In what you do name is Marla. I'll tell you that I am an army. I I am originally from L. was raised in Denver Colorado and I currently live in Fort Drum New York. Oh that's that's a big transition from you. Know all the way from the West Coast to the east coast but I am a military spouse. I'm an army wife eleven years. I actually married my husband after a meeting. Have thirty days prior. So that's for another day But so the beginning of our mirrors was kind of you know I was working full time and my husband was in the army reserves which really been money It didn't pay any of our bills and so we were kind of struggling financially I haven't got. He got temporary job working in a warehouse and this kind of helped us financially but it wasn't enough And then I actually ended up and so I was like. Hey something's gotta change like I'm working my butt off. I was working fulltime plus overtime. Who is doing side jobs In picking up dog poop on the weekends is on the cool side job. Just say no. I was doing it in so I was pregnant and that lesson as a nigger So I decided that him going active duty would be the best for both of US ended up going active duty in the army and are first active duty station list barracks ally and so we actually moved over there. I actually did have having a miscarriage. Unfortunately So we moved over there. He jumped straight into army life. We've lived on Paul's gwen straightaway to training on the and he was deployed. Now I said earlier. They had only ninety days prior to getting married. This all happened within about four of us being married when we're moving. Why and he was already gone on. His is so less than a year is being married. We were preparing forward plans to Iraq in so that was really hard for me. I have my job in Denver because I you know. Of course I can transfer my job. I worked in hospitality industry in some we got to Hawaii. I actually was looking for. Boxer is a lot of hospitality jobs in what is actually Interviewed in gotTa Job there and before my husband deployed. We would preplan counseling which is amazing. Because we're allowed to talk about our expectations during the climate With our spouse and so we were talking about it and my husband's like well if you're working how would I call you? How can I talk to you? And I'm like I don't know going to work so all of a sudden a little different as an army style. That was no longer than that in arguing. I now as an army wife. Who so purpose. In my opinion a good care of my soul your eye on role taking care of my soldier. I didn't take the job when a soldier not employees. I sat at home. I did a little bit of volunteering. Took some classes at the army community service ultimately my lifeless around it in taking care of my soldier I kind of lost myself in that. And that was a years of my life Was just taking care of him preparing for deployment blowing through at twelve month applying as we had before and you know waiting by the phone and this was all before facebook. So is the phone rings. You didn't receive that phone call from your husband now you were. You know chance you had anxiety is something happened. Usually with apple Owns off out in Iraq and there was no outside communications. So you didn't know your husband was okay or you know what not so. It was a very hard time for me Over the years I cream Solely focused on him having children and then I was on my children so ultimately I kind of lost myself. I lost my own identity. I lost at independent woman. I used to be so over time. I had to learn how to get that back. So what was the thing that was was it year? Children reaching a certain age or was your husband reaching a certain point in his career. Kinda gave you what. What was your green light? Marla go for it moment. So my goal quart moment and this is an A. Hannah be a little league is not a great bell for moments actually and my my light went off inside of my head was when we had situation of infidelity and are near And that's when I realized that I lost myself. I realized that I was doing so much for this other person. And I I wasn't giving anything to myself In that happen I realize that not only was I not getting something to myself. But he was also seeking something somewhere else and so ultimately it was almost like a double whammy and so at that moment it clicked inside me at. You've got to do better for yourself because you can't give all of yourself to someone but that doesn't mean that that's going to be reciprocated. Nor does that mean I will fulfill you and I wasn't fulfilling me and so I had to do better for myself. I was literally spending years at home. This taking care of my kids and my husband and also these functions in me at spouse that and has that fulltime job and oh is your husband and she's like oh I don't know and I I in the world is at my whole life was consumed by my soldier Higher existence was about him and I would have never known that it was almost a blessing in disguise. I hate to say that but it was a disguise if that would have never happen. I have noticed that I lost myself. No because I thought that was whole play at that point because I thought so trained into just taking care of is over the years you get lost in that And I that one. I used to be that was God. That wow that is a big revelation and I think I I certainly can relate to that story and I definitely had my you know I I I would say. Had a green light moment and Fortunately it wasn't that kind of moment but because that is a big wake up call But you know how incredible that you were able to work through that and work past that you're still married today and you're doing these phenomenal things. I mean you're a military spouse of the year you are a writer. You're all these incredible things and I. I love that I love that. You have come through that period of your life in just and you're just you're not just doing okay. You're doing phenomenally so tell us about some of the things that you did We certainly don't have to go into the marriage part of overcoming headed if you don't want to but personally what are the things that you did for yourself? That was like okay. I'm this is how I'm going to get marlow back one piece at a time. Well the first thing that I had to do in all honesty was go to counseling and not just marital counseling with something that we get as well as a couple of housing for myself. Kind of find out. I lost myself in the first place. What happened to make me Wants to go down that path in leave myself behind because you can go down that path with your spouse and you still maintain your sense of self But then there's a lot of times where you know where it's hot in every In the military culture that our soldiers importance is is the nominal is Yoon Arison to the the importance of the family. Unfortunately in so I kind of Alaba- path soul counseling was one of the first decided realize. Hey I actually want to do something with my life. I had his fire to be a writer. I actually started college of age of seventeen going to community college and then life happened and I ended up propping college and so when I was about twenty eight years old Is after all this stuff. Happened in idea counting. I guess I want to go to school but I don't know how that looks or how to do it so it was. I went to the Education Center on Poles and I talked to some of the visors area. There's advisors from different schools off in at a military installation as usually about four schools as though. I talked to all of them find out you know what what path I should say and so I was. I was Louis intimidated now. I'm not a college for over ten years I had any I am now. I had to was Germany at the time and so I was like. I don't know how to do this so I talked to them and I told them. I want to be a writer. I don't know how to to get into that field Academically as what I wanted to do and I you have to be honest so I was on with them and said Hey. I'm really erred. I don't want to take a full time schedule because I don't know how my life or the life of my children So if I can start slow I'll do act so I suggested. Hey Hey class at a time and you can do it online if you want to. Don't have physically both to a school center To receive your education. You're doing online missile. This was like oh my gosh. It was so amazing for me to hear this because this was something that I could start off slow and kind of worked my way into it So I am taking one class at time. I was actually majoring in English I took one class at a time in the school I was going to Was AMAZING BECAUSE NOT ONLY? Did they offer online classes? But they offer Hybrid classes in in classroom classes as well at the education center so I was really grateful. I had options. And that's one of his aides or meet with the stepping into school was that I didn't know what I wanted to do. So I need it those options there for me so that I can say okay. I want to do this but if I came to my mind as okay do And so that was really important for me is one of the first things. Was you know getting that class scheduled out? So I met with the advisers I registered for school oftentimes as military spouse your registration fee Free or low cost In so I register for school and I got my class schedule And I was only taking one class I thought about my AGFA and a lot of people. Don't know that you're GONNA our chips. Dot Com are of our troops for different things for military spouse. People of Color for disabled people burst so many different categories of scholarships that you can get at our at his free money that you will not have to be required to pay back on. You have to ask your classes and fell for me. That was an avenue that eye to eye visit is operatives dot com and I feel about followership applications. I use fast one and I got Pilgrims from government and I also use a army emergency relief. I don't know specifically speaking for any other branches. Though in Army army emergency relief also in certain places will provide funding for school. And so that is well and so. I actually started college. I ate nothing at a zero dollars going to school. And this was another thing that impacted my education because now all of these things are kind of scary. If you don't know where to begin you're like oh can I afford is I have the time for this and ultimately I could afford it because it was free and I time because I take class and I can do it all lying while my children were sleeping while they were still owns daycare or there was just so many other options for me so I was grateful for that so I started going to school one class at a time and I ultimately built upon class as I felt comfortable silent while class and I started taking two classes? All the way into a full time schedule. You don't have to do that as glass throughout the duration of your of Your Education. I more comfortable asked. Hi What I. I was. Regaining that sense of cell. I was I was doing a concert. Is Allow that allowed me to continue on to do more so I continue to do that. In the ultimate leave ended up getting my associate's degree in general studies with Hispanic background. And I got my bachelor's in communications I did swift by major in as another ing. Bat Is Super Amazing about this. I went to and many of the schools. You can you can change. Anytime is your relies. Hey that's something at night but had a little more difficult in my audit would be. Were either null interested in that subject. You can keep your mate. And that's I. I switched from English to communications. Which to me is kind of insane family. A little different is so I was see myself Air My bachelor's degree awesome. I love that I heard a lot of really important things at what you're talking about. The first thing was that you went into. It took me a resource. So you knew that there were resources on post And there are typically are in most military installations so you went in and but you also went in knowing what it was that you wanted to do. You said I want to be a writer and honestly I and say probably my whole life. I wanted to be a writer as well. And you know how you go through your life where people are like. Oh that's nice. It's like saying I WANNA be a baseball player or something. I don't know what it is. I people Over the course of my life have been like a writer. That's weird but so I feel like I've actually feel like that's quite a realistic goal. Especially these days but you know I would. I would also think it's important for anybody. Who's out there who's thinking? They want to go back to school wanting to do something to not see. Whatever it is they want to do is kind of a pipe dream. At least start there. You know because I think in the in the course of your story learning how you went from English to communication. I think that makes a Lotta sense because you know communications puts you more in a place where you can quote unquote do something with your degree. It makes it a little bit more actionable in specific Which is Great? Not that there's anything wrong with being English Major. I think there's lots of actionable things out of there. But certainly it's it's pointed you in a direction that you've followed a and I think that follows your natural abilities and talents so and I think that's the beautiful part about education So I heard that I heard you knew what you wanted. You took advantage of resources. You also looked for. Other resources scholarships super important. I think that's the big thing. A lot of people don't know military spouses is that you can take you being a funding. That's out there. It's not military focused funding even though you can absolutely take care of your take advantage of your spouse's Gi bill if he or she so chooses to give that to you. Fortunately my spouse was very generous in the fact that he gave me his Gi Bill. And I will. I'll never be able to repeat and maybe I will but I feel like that was such a great gift. and But you can take advantage of things like that so definitely knowing that there are other resources to pay for things was definitely important and then I think the big thing that I loved about what you say I loved it all but one of big things I loved about what you said. Is that you re you recognized. You can do it a little at a time because I've talked about. It's kind of a theme. That ends up coming up when I talked to military spouses is if you've been out of the game for a little while or if you don't know where to go everybody wants to go go go. We're very ambitious people military spouses and I know you know so and everybody wants to do everything all the time and you want to go on. Everybody says you're supposed to finish college in four years. You're supposed to do things in certain timelines and honestly you know. That's not always realistic when it comes to what we do for a and what our life looks like having children etc etc so. I love that you looked very realistically at your life in at the things that were required at that time and said Okay I can ease into it one class at a time and that it allowed you to build your confidence because that's certainly another thing. I see military spouses. Struggle with is the to get back into education or get back into the into the workforce so I love that that message What are all was kind of advice already? But what are some other things that you would tell military spouses who are hoping to restore or to grow their professional careers during active duty life with whether it's related to education or just overall self preparation so definitely getting involved in your community is a and I see that we can do to? You can also help build confidence but it. Back into the workforce so if you volunteer. There's so many different positions and different entities your involvement. Here in a in your house and outside of your military installation as well so you can build your skills that way as well. Those are resume builders when you go step. Ill like for instance. I'M IN THE COMMUNICATIONS field volunteer. That local news agent or newspaper volunteer at the PEO's off is if they allow Doing internship extreme. Gyp is you want to get into the medical so I'll volunteer at the Red Cross. Go take those kind of that experience in that you want to go to as a very important also is aligned with getting. Your education is self care. That's something that I alluded for so many years. Because I wasn't taught that I wasn't hot to take CARE OF MYSELF. I will talk to take your other equal in so I didn't even know how that looked or how to do. It is so taking care of myself with something that I had to learn along the way you can be a great mobs. You Great White. You could be a great husband or grace thousand general but you can still take care of yourself. You can do that to taking care of yourself not take away from other people and this is something that I hadn't learned the hard way I wasn't taking care of myself every I had to everyone else and ultimately I lost myself and I had I had no sense of self worth is so aiming that back or keeping it is something that's very important to your transition back into the workforce acting to Education absolutely awesome. I love that and I've loved learning about your experience because what a great story you have when agree timeline that you have an and I love that year disagreed example to military spouses overall. Is someone who has come through a lot of different struggles personally and achieve so tell us one more thing. I'm GonNa ask you is. What are some things that you're working on right now? And and how can people get in contact with you so some of the things? I work on Working on right now is I'm in the process a riding my children's but and I actually My daughter is an artist. She's seven years old and she's won a lot of awards for her illustrations. So I am actually going to ask her to illustrate my book for me is out at in. It's about a little girl who was homeless but wanted to achieve her dreams Oh I super excited about that In I just love to incorporate my children in things that I'm doing. I operate them cheering. I'd probably teach them to stay with the world. Health and world of is as my biggest thing so another time doing is I advocate for people in need for homeless people Through I companies Project we pass out products in basic care items to people in need In so we've been working with a lot of different Of organizations out there and so the community and just to you know empower those communities to not only help homeless people or the people in need but to also empower them so that they can help yourselves in futures itself as a manner as another project. I'm working on outside of me being a brighter. Which is a real job. Absolutely actually add when you spoke about being. I drink. I actually had I had an experience. Were I talked to in an Employment Assistance Office? And we were talking about She helps people find POPs in so I just went in there and I was just having small talk conversation with him and he's like I can help you get into education. You want a D- WanNa do for a living outside. I WanNa be a writer. He's like yeah. That's not a career field only lousy everything is item. You wanted to buy every magazine. Written Oregon. Every Book IRA and all the articles I rented like. Oh that's interesting around was kind of. It was kind of interesting to hear how people who get work. Assistance could give guidance For people of China Obtain Employment View. Certain Don's is Al's pretty interesting to me but that's actually what I do. I'm actually a writer by trade. Might have a basket communication and that is what I do. I love it. Yeah absolutely I. I feel like we've run into maybe similar people in life because I yeah and I think that that is a good fair word of warning when you're out there working with different service providers is that they're not great at or that they have. They don't have good intentions. But you know I was remember. We talked about those those dream. Crushers out there. Some people will guide you based on their own internal limitations for themselves. I think that's always important to step back. And acknowledge that maybe that person is limited in their own scope of what it is they think is possible and not Judge Them. Not yet on them. Then you just go okay but clearly being a writer is a possible thing because Marlin writer and I love that eventually. I will be a legit writer for now. I'll keep working on the other things. I'm working on and keep writing on the side but anyway well thank you so much for all of that graded by things for sharing your story.

This is something so many of us struggle because people just do what we want them to do. They didn't do what we wanted in the past. They're not doing what we want now. They're not going to do what we want in the future. I like to bring a dying backs. It just always reminds me how much of my own drama about relationships comes from china. Control other people who i can't control and comes from what i make other people's behavior mean about me when it has nothing to do with me so i am not alone in needing coaching.

I think on this episode really grapple with those same themes and will be so helpful relevant to any of you who have any trouble with any other humans in any relationships which is all of you all right.

Who knows for what you're rain just was like well maybe next month because that's what brains do number one year putting off like growing and evolving and making your life amazing so i don't know why you put that off anyway but let this be your reason to get off. The fence comes up for the clutch. So that when we open up registration on april twelfth. You have a chance to sign up. These events sell out in like one to two days. Usually they're really popular. But i do. Keep them small. Because i want everyone to get personal attention. So they're amazing. I can't recommend them highly enough there. One of my favorite things to do. And if that sounds fun to you then you wanna come. During the coach you shot at it all right. So let's dig into some questions and answers about relationships. I went through a very hard break a couple years ago. Which made me realize how much self-doubt i had about myself. And how much always trying to manipulate my relationships to obtain a certain outcome. They'll provide me with the validation i need. I finally decided to put myself out there again and started going out with the guy matt through dating app not surprisingly. I started trying to manipulate him and are very brief relationship into something that would make me feel good about myself. Of course i didn't work and the relationship ended with me finding out that he's just not that into me. Although this made me feel really bad about myself. I was able to do some thought work to try to think. More neutral positive thoughts about myself have her. I still find myself going against reality. I understand there's nothing wrong with me. And that him. Not liking me does not mean i am not worthy however i keep thinking if there's nothing wrong with me then why is it that he doesn't like me. I know i'm fighting a battle. I can't win. I wonder if there's a way to think more positively about this issue okay. So here's the thing you don't really know that there's nothing wrong with you and that him not liking. You doesn't mean you're not worthy and that's okay like most humans don't know that and even when they learned that they don't know it like you it takes a while to get their right but it's a lie to tell yourself you understand that and know that already because you don't here's how we know you don because you're still fixated on why this guy doesn't like you and you think that if there's nothing wrong with you everyone would like you right. So that's how we know that you don't really like yourself and you don't really believe you're worthy if there's nothing wrong with me then why is it. He doesn't like me. We could just as equally ask. Why should he like you. Do you like everyone. You've met of course not write much less. everyone uganda. A deep with you can be mighty sure always says you can be the most delicious peace in the world and someone still not gonna like peaches. Think dita von teesta that originally actually my teacher says it too so your brain is so committed to the idea that there's something wrong with you and that how you are causes what other people think about you. That is basically telling you that if it's true there's nothing wrong with you. That would mean everyone should like you and so if anyone doesn't it means there is something wrong with you but those premises are totally wrong. What other people think about you has to do with their thoughts right. Maybe you reminded him of his third grade teacher. Maybe he's not really ready to be dating. Maybe you just weren't a good fete. Right could be a million things that doesn't make do with something being wrong with you if it was true. That if nothing's wrong with you everyone should like you then. One could just like mary. Everyone in the tenth grade right. Like there would be no dating and breakups and divorces like all the things that happened in relationships three and could all just marry whoever when matter so that premises. What's wrong here. there's nothing wrong with me. Then why is it. He hasn't liked me. Those things are totally unrelated. What someone thinks about you has nothing to do with you. It's their brain and your problem. Here is your brain right and what it's telling you and the real problem. Is you not liking yourself. That's what you need to work on. It's not about him. he's just a green screen. The you are projecting your insecurity on your to work on liking yourself. When you do that you will know that. Him not liking. You has nothing to do with you. Kara i've been listening to loving podcasts. For a couple of months in your teachings you say that love is a feeling as created by our thoughts when thinking about romantic love though i would argue. There's something more than our thoughts contributing to the attraction and feeling of love for eighteen years of my life. I had the thought that i was straight but my thoughts never created feelings of romantic love. Instead i realized my feelings towards women were present in spite of my thought that i was straight. We can't use. Who were attracted to yet you. That our thoughts generate our feelings. Could it be. There's a difference between attraction and love and if so doesn't attraction also create our feelings. I think this is a great question. So there's absolutely a difference between physical attraction and the feeling of love rate. So i do think that our thoughts influence who were physically attracted to more than we give them credit for. But i don't think they do all of that work rate so i think that some of our biological traction has to do with hormones and pheromones that are not under our conscious control and so i absolutely don't think that this listener for instance could think herself straight. She is sexually attracted to women. That's like her basic biological orientation and so thinking that she was straight didn't change that right just like thinking that i'm each feet. Tall doesn't change the fact that i'm five foot now might change how i contracted the world and the actions i take. I might bypass the to the wrong size. Just trying to date man. If i'm really into women but it won't change that underlying experience. I think we're it's trickier and where this question is more complicated as the feelings of romantic love because i think we all accept that there such a thing as romantic love that's like separate from saxon different from other kinds of love but i actually am not sure that that's true. I think when you really tune into your body. The feeling of love feels pretty similar. Whoever you're having love about that when you're sexually attracted to someone there's a lot of other complicated feelings in there about the attraction about the sexuality but then there's also like our thoughts and stories about romantic love which impact how we feel so. I don't think attraction creates feelings attraction creates desire which is kind of a feeling but that sort of different kinds and so there is biological attraction that creates desire sexual desire. There's also thoughts about what you're attracted to in what you like that create the feeling of desire is of course like i don't know this letter writers history but i think a lot of people who are trying to believe there straight potentially have some inklings like there were you had the conscious thought you were straight but probably you had the subconscious thought that you were attracted to women rate. You probably looked at women and occasionally thought that they looked appealing rate. I would guess or your feelings for your female. Friends might have occasionally been like a more intense than maybe what other people were experiencing. We don't know what all your subconscious thoughts were. 'cause you weren't doing thought were at this time but i don't sort of really believed that. None of the attraction to women would have been present during high school. I just think you weren't aware of it and conscious of it. And so and he thought you were having about it where subconscious so all. You are conscious of your conscious thoughts about being straight some extent so. I don't really think that thinking you're straight would produce those feelings of desire and attraction and love when they were competing with whatever the subconscious thoughts are. That'd be my guess but fundamentally. I do think that physical attraction is different from love but i don't think that physical chemistry your biological traction creates our feelings. I think creates sexual desire. The our thoughts create our feelings and that love is a feeling that all kinds of love actually feel pretty similar if you are taking out the part about sexual attraction rate if you take that part out of it so love that question. It's a great meta question about the war. How do i know when a relationship is toxic thinking. How much is truly my partner's actions for example. One of many. If a spouse doesn't bills on time in racks up hundreds of dollars in late fees thought work won't change that. So how does that work. Help relationship issues okay. So there's a well that last part is a huge question right. How does thought were change relationship issues. So that's kind of in every way. I'm not going to address that exactly but i wanna talk about this question. How do i know in a relationship is toxic. And what won't change okay. So number one relationship is never toxic. That's never a circumstance unless they literally tried to poison you write. Your thought is that it's toxic. There's no such thing as it truly being toxic or not. There can't be because toxic is a human word that we have made up that people use to describe a huge range of behaviors. Right like all say. It's only toxic if they try to poison you. Some people will say it's toxic if they yell at you. Some people say it's toxic if they tell you they don't like what you're wearing some people will say it's toxic if they don't like going to your family events great it can mean so many different things so many different people. That's how we know it's a thought and not a circumstance. Now you could choose to believe your relationship is toxic. I don't really advise that. Because i don't think you get a good result from it but it's up to you right but when you say how much of his mike thinking how much is truly my partner's actions the answer is that it's always all you're thinking right because your partners actions are circumstances so if your spouse does not pay a bill by the due date and you get a hundred fifty dollar late fee. That is a circumstance. You're right thought. Work does not change that circumstance or make it not exist but you believing that's a problem and what you think about it. That is thoughts. There are some people in the world. Who's thought about a spouse not paying bills on time and getting late fees is. Oh that's adorable. They're so absorbed in their work. Lie love that. I can fix us for them or the people who just feel neutral about it or this people who just decide to pay the bills themselves because they know this happens right and then there's you and you're not alone in this thinking. Oh my god this toxic and a disaster right all different reactions to the same circumstance spouse didn't pay bill by bill date utility gave us hundred dollar late fee or nine hundred dollars late fee. Whatever it is right thought. Work isn't about changing circumstances. The point of thought work is that we don't have to change circumstances because a circumstance is neutral. It truly is neutral that your spouse didn't pay the bill and now you have late fees. That's just a neutral circumstance is not inherently good or bad. It is your thought about it. This is terrible this is toxic. I can't trust him. We can't afford this. Whatever your thoughts are that create all of your negative feelings having said that i don't teach that you are quote unquote supposed to us. Thought work to be in any relationship no matter what. And that is a way that my work really gets misinterpreted. I think no matter how many times. I say this you can always choose. What kind of relationship you want to be. If you decide you don't want to be in a relationship with people who don't pay the bills on time that you want building to be their job and you want to do it a certain way and you don't want to manage that you can totally decide to have a relationship based on that. It's just important to understand that that's your preference and you're willing to give up. Whatever other things to get that rather than believing any sane normal person would do it this way and if your partner doesn't then it's toxic and dangerous they don't respect you. There's something wrong with them right because when you were believing all of that that they are wrong then you want them to be different and then you are constantly either trying to change them or resent them or you leave them and partner up with somebody else and maybe this person does pay the bills on time but they don't do something else you want them to do like they don't wash the dishes on time and then you got all the negative thoughts about that like if you are believing that circumstances caused your feelings you will always be trying to control your partner. Whoever that partner is you might not have to try to control them about bill paying. You'll end up about something else right so really. I can answer the question right. Thought work helps relationship issues. Because you're only issue is your own thoughts and feelings. That's your only problem okay. Here's our next question. I noticed i obsess in ruminate over romantic relationships that end even when i can objectively come up with reasons why they were a bad fit. I think the root problem is a lack of self worth and seeking not from other people. Who seem vaguely compatible. I try to come up with alternative thoughts but still find myself sliding into obsessive rumination reimagine conversations in alternative comes. That don't involve acts disapproving or rejecting me but rather approving of an admiring its constant and embarrassing a drag and more generally. I'm aware that i'm less present when i'm stuck inside my head so much. What's the solution a come up with better thoughts. Be try harder to think the sauce. Whenever i catch myself in some crazy mental mini movie reboot of a failed relationship. See exception even appreciate the criticism d all of the above all the above. But i don't think she is so important. So yes i think you need to work on coming up with a new thought or two to practice about this. There's like another option e. Which is you need to be practicing these thoughts. Not just when you are in this. Little like movie reboot in your head. You can't just wait until you're in the middle of that to practice your new thought so you need to be practicing your new thoughts consistently and in this case. You need to be figuring out. What do you imagine that you would get to think and feel if somebody decided to keep dating instead of not or if they admired you whatever that means right. What are the thoughts feelings you would get to have. That's what you have to work on creating for yourself now. So the solution is yes. Come up with a new thought or to practice about this. Yes tried it. It's really tried harder to think those thoughts when you're in the mental mini movie. It's really you need to pricing slots. Along but i think probably there is little element of trying harder in that. You are used to kind of doing this. And it's probably kind of seductive for you. It's like a way that you numb like peace out from your current reality is to live in this fantasy world and so you have to be willing to give up the comfort and seduction of this fantasy world in order to be present with your actual reality which is going to be uncomfortable. That's why you're trying to escape it. So that is also the work to is like. Are you willing to give this fantasy an order to be with your actual current reality. Because i think that these fantasies are just like the way other people use food or booze or whatever else to buffer right to zone out to like escape reality to give yourself a hit of dopamine and so he actually willing to give that up and be uncomfortable and feel bad about yourself and think negative thoughts about yourself right and like really get real and sit with your current reality and work on changing that okay. Next question hiker. You saying once since learning to manage your mind. You don't find social events exhausting. And that you don't believe in labeling ourselves introverts extroverts. I still struggle social events right. I don't know anyone mostly because i find it. Exhausting to engage in small talk with people. I usually find it boring and can't go home and read a book if i run my own limit. The amount of gatherings. I go to but my partly sociable and likes when i go to events with him. This causes a lotta conflicts. Because i want to go home earlier than he does and then i start of negative thoughts like he deserves someone who's more sociable and i ended up just feeling bad. I'm guessing i find social events exhausting because of my thoughts but why even i don't care people think of me i can still find social events boring. I admit some situations. I'm wondering if people find me boring. Okay so there's gonna blow your mind. listen up. boring is thought. When you feel bored you are creating that with your thoughts and your thoughts are this is boring right and so your result is your board. I still feel. I'm like a little more introverted than i would. I don't believe in like having intense labels. But probably i'm a little more introverted than i am extroverted but i totally find small talk fascinating because it's just people telling you their thoughts which is like always. I'm always fascinated to hear like what are people thinking. so i don't find social events. Be a struggle now. I might be a little tired afterwards. Because i am a little more towards the introversion side rate but i can also find them in energizing. If i'm you know. I sort of have two different modes of like i'm here talking a lot and entertaining and that can be kind of energizing. And then there's like a more receptive mode where like oh i'm drawing you out and making quote unquote small talk. I'm listening to you talk and that one can be a little tired after sometimes but in neither case do i find it boring. Is it a struggle. Do i need have conflict with a partner about it right so you need to understand that you're boring yourself with your thoughts but you also have to decide if this is something you want to change. I think part of what's going on here is that you think you should go to the events with him and you're trying to make him happy and control his feelings and so in the process. You're ignoring your own feelings. You know you're on thought which is that. You don't wanna go and then you end up having this conflict around it so i really think of two different sets of work to do here. It's you decide if you actually want to change this and stop trying to cause your partner's feelings right and work on feeling totally fine about saying honey. I don't want to go tonight or i'm going to go but i'm gonna leave after an hour. We should take separate cars right or whatever else like there's a million ways to solve the concrete problem of a partner wanting to stay a party longer than you do. But you can't see those right now because you're you're you're all in your drama about this and you think you need to go to makes him happy but they don't wanna go and then you think he should have someone more sociable. There's something wrong with me. This is boring right all of that. So what i would do is just get really curious with yourself like the next time this comes up. Just be an observer of your own mind just notice what you're thinking at the party and i think you'll find that when you're thinking it's boring your board right when you think it's exhausting. You feel exhausted when you think it's a struggle. It feels like a struggle. But i also want you to do some thinking about whether you actually care about this and want to change it or not like you choose to believe. I'm an introvert have social anxiety. I just don't want to go to these things and then manage your mind about how your partner might be upset about that without making me. No he deserves someone else right like no he deserves you. You deserve him like you guys can deserve each other. Even if you don't like to go the same amount of social events ain't got to kind like take away some of this weight you're putting on it and then you'll be able to see more clearly if it's worth changing or not and if you want to change it and if you do then you'll be able to start paying attention to how you're creating your own experience at these parties with your thoughts k. So multiple levels up the work. One thing i wanna share with. Y'all this is a note that i got from a podcast listener and i asked her permission to share it with you. And so here's what she and she said yes. Obviously i asked her permission and she said no. And i'm sharing it anyway. No remission and she said yes. I'm shariat so here's what she said. Because i think it will speak to a lot of you guys have. She said i've been listening to you for many years. Now i started listening to the podcast in two thousand eighteen and even listen to the lawyer stress solution. That was the previous name of this. Podcast back when i only coach lawyers even though it had absolutely no relevance to me while i was working on growing my real estate business except of course that thought was proven wrong instantly because those episodes most certainly did have relevance to me. I got his just as much as episodes as i did when it became on. Fuck your brain. So i highly recommend anyone else listening to those early episodes to i was in a pretty dark place mentally and i didn't really know where to start to change the way i thought about life others around me. I most importantly myself. I started going to therapy. Which helped. but i needed a constant soundtrack to basically tell me. Everything's gonna be okay. You got this. You should stay on this path to this day. I listened to pretty much as soon as they come out. But back then. I was so hungry for further growth that i listened to episodes over and over and over again to make sure i got the most out of them which is funny because last week's episode. That's exactly what you suggest it even with all of that. It took me until january. Twenty twenty one to finally joined the clutch. My thought about not joining with something along the lines of well. I listened to the podcast and has helped me tremendously and there can't be that much more value in joining the clutch than what. I'm getting out of the podcast boy. Was i wrong. She has an all caps emphasis. Boy was i wrong. I have been diving deep into the coaching tools. Ever since i joined this amazing community and truly without the clutch. I would never have grasped how to do this effectively by just listening to the podcast alone. It turns out you were totally right when you say that you take the work deeper in the long story short this work is truly life changing and i am so excited to continue to apply these lessons that i have learned to my life every single day. Thank you so much for creating such an amazing set of tools and community that women can use to change the fucking world. So i totally cried when i read this. And there's so many things. I love about this that i wanted to share with you all the first one is the way that this chicken was combining. Coaching and therapy is a question. That comes up a lot right as if they're sort of two very different things that shouldn't be used together or it's one or the other rate. I also love that. She listened to the podcast over and over again. Because oftentimes you really need so much reinforcement rate to really be able to change your thought patterns like going to a session with a therapist once a week. That's an hour of a whole week right and when you can listen to the podcast on repeat and even better if you join the clutch and you can have things. You're practising every day and community to be talking to every day you're gonna make so much more progress because you're just getting so much more exposure rate your brain is getting so much more immersion in it. I love that she. We listened to the episodes which i totally recommend. And i love that. She was so honest about why it took her so long to join the clutch. I love that she shared. That thought which probably a lot of you also have right. The podcast has helped you and like what could the difference really be. And i love that. She explained. There is such a big difference between just listening to the podcast and joining the clutch. It's like night and day right. The podcast is amazing. Obviously i love this podcast. I've been doing it every single week for free for four years. So i love it and i believe in it but it's not the same thing as having access to a whole library of coaching tools and workbooks and exercises and having a coaching demand from coaches and having access to a community of women doing the work to support you and talk it through right. It's just a totally different experience. That completely up levels takes deeper for you and now is an amazing time to join the clutch because we are going to be opening up registration soon for our next clutch. College live which are three day events that we do live online these days in the future. Hopefully we'll get to be in person again some day but we will be doing one in may that is live online and it's a small group event where we dive deep into a couple of topics. So the one coming up in may. We're going to be working on the coaching model. That i teach and how to both deal with negative emotion and change negative thoughts but also create positive thoughts and positive emotion on is going to be working on setting big goals and achieving them handling everything that comes up along the way that you actually set yourself up for success and we're gonna be working on relationships any relationship. You have how to increase connection decrease conflict decrease anxiety right and cultivate a better relationship in any kind of setting any kind of relationship. You have so if you want to come to that event you have to be in the clutch in order to attend. And they sell out pretty quickly. We really limit the size that everybody gets lots of personal attention so it's always an amazing time to join the clutch because it truly will up level. Anything that you've learned from the podcast light caitlyn explained but now's a particularly good time to join because you will have a chance to try to sign up for one spot at a live event.

#147 - The Stay Rich Portfolio (or, How to Add 2% Yield to Your Savings Account)

"Welcome to the med favor. Show where the focus is on helping you grow and preserve your wealth. Join us as we discussed the craft of investing and uncover new and profitable ideas. All to help you grow wealthier and wiser better investing starts here. Favors the co founder and chief investment officer at Cambria investment management industry regulations. He will not discuss any of cameras funds on this podcast. All opinions expressed by podcasts. Participants are solely their own opinions and do not reflect the opinion of Cambria investment management or it's affiliates. For more information, visit Cambria investments dot com. Oh, come friends. We have another episode of shorts. Where today we're gonna be talking about a really fun topic near and dear to my heart. It was originally the two part concept of questions, we get a lot from people where I think the conclusions are not what most investors would expect. And I think they find the face of most of Wall Street wisdom, and they really come from two prongs of what people ask me a lot the first being hey, I've won the game. I'm wealthy. I have whatever the number is one hundred thousand a million ten million a hundred million, and I wanna stay rich. I want to protect my wealth. How do I do it? And the second question is, hey, I really wanna compound is highs. I can what is the best method to do this. And so we're writing a two part series. The first one we pin in January called the stay rich portfolio or how to add two percent yield to your savings account and the second one called the get rich portfolio will publish at some point hopefully in the second quarter. But today, I wanna talk about the state rich portfolio. Because I think it's a really interesting topic that not a lot of people think about so let's get started in two thousand twelve I by Teesta had an estimated net worth more than thirty five billion dollars. The self made billionaire is Brazilian create an empire that stretched from mining oil. The public works mini considered him the pride of Brazil about two years later. He lost. It all thirty five billion dollars. He actually owed an extra billion to creditors. How does that happen? How does thirty five billion dollar portfolio? Practically evaporate overnight you point to several poor decisions. Perhaps the biggest of all was concentration risk and also buffets favorite destroyer leverage. But he's his wealth was overwhelmingly tied to the global commodities. Boom, all then investment concentration was a huge tail in and helping Batista. Come rich eventually proved his downfall as well. This points to a critical takeaway every investor needs to be aware of the portfolio that helps you get rich isn't necessarily the portfolio that's going to help you stay. Hey, rich reserves shown that seventy percent of wealthy families lose their wealth by these second generation. And a whopping ninety percent by the third generation granted some of that is due to high-spending addiction, bad luck leverage just poor decisions. But a lot of it is how people invest their money. Can you invest in a certain way to bomb proof your portfolio to minimize losses? And this piece was do what Batista's should have done. It's been a few minutes focusing on the stay rich part of the equation investors. Already mass great wealth and won the game. What's the right market approach? They'll help you keep invitation even grow your wealth. So the title. The second part is how safe are Rhys retrieve bills. When trying to engineer a stay rich portfolio. It makes sense to start with the investing community refers to as the risk free rate. Most often we find this is the rate of current treasury bills. Name Becerra believed T-Bills would be safest most conservative investment available. In fact, if you look T-Bills back to nineteen twenty six they returned three point four percent per year was zero drawdown losses. Pretty safe. Right. Not so fast. These are nominal returns and nominal returns illusion. Because they don't take inflation into account all the matters to any investors returns after inflation or what we call real returns. And if you measure the returns T-Bills after inflation, you see a different story. Unfortunately, there's a story. Most investors haven't seen. So I recently asked my Twitter followers, the following question. If you're not on Twitter hop on at MAB favor. Let's say you're conservative investor, and you put all your money into safe US government short-term treasury bills. How big of a drawdown which is a peak to trough loss after inflation. Did you experience in the twentieth century on the four pole choices were zero to fifteen percent? Fifteen to thirty percent thirty to forty five percent and worse than forty five percent. So sixteen people said the first answer twenty-seven the second twenty one the third thirty six the last. So the good news is most people got it right of the for choices. The bad news is the vast majority of people underestimated this so sixty four almost two-thirds of people had this wrong. The actual real maximum drawdown was half. You lost half your money on after inflation basis by putting it into safe T-Bills, by the way, the people that aunt that follow me on Twitter. You can't follow me on Twitter, unless you're pretty much big time. Quant finance nerd, we don't tweet a whole lot of fun dialogue for the rest of the nine point nine percent of the world. So the point being is this audience is. Ready curated probably investment professionals to wear this number in this poll. The fact that two-third got this wrong would probably much higher for the general population than people who don't have a long history in financial markets. So these are very intelligent people. Good looking too, by the way, Twitter followers, podcast listeners, far greater investing experience. Most they seriously underestimated loss of short term bonds. So the risk free rate isn't risk-free after all, and I'm ignoring by the way, as an example, other global sovereign bond markets that have produced one hundred percent loss on investment whether through hyperinflation, it's Atra defaults. The original version of this post that I wrote actually a lot of what people actually do with their money. They leave in the Bank with zero percent interest rate, the modern diversion of stuff again under the mattress. I can't tell you how many people by the way for listening. Ask yourself. Do. I know how much interest I'm getting on my cash in the Bank. And if you don't know the answer the answer is zero. For some of you others. You may be getting point one point two percent. But you know, you can actually get well over two percent right now totally protected in a savings account. So if you're not you're just being lazy? So a full third of people responded when I asked another question of what they are on their Bank count third of people responded, they earn zero percent or didn't know. So by the way, if you don't does invest investing T-Bills us put your money under the mattress, you leave it in a Bank account. We're talking Bank of America here where you're getting zero percent return. You've actually lose all of your assets. We're talking minus ninety seven percent clip of about three percent per year. So it's a slow bleed people. Don't notice it. But over time it really adds up that by the way is why a lot of older, folks. Listen this episode the old phrase, I remember when a coke used to cost quarter. I remember when movies were only a dollar that's due to inflation. So what about other asset classes might real returns be safer? Elsewhere remember T-Bills lost half putting money on a mattress loss. Ninety seven percent. Unfortunately, not losses are worse. When we expand our now since the other asset classes below or following a real max drawdowns back to nineteen twenty six US stocks. We're talking eighty percent. Same thing for foreign stocks US bonds tenure law sixty percent foreign bonds eighty percent gold eighty five percent. Ouch. The naysayers listening. My look at this and say, yeah. But these are max drawdowns at likely played out over several years. A smart investor would have gotten out after say a one year battery turns well without mine, we publish a table. And I'll read it that highlights. The worst twelve month period of real returns for each of the aforementioned asset classes, nothing was truly safe again in a one year period gold loss forty four and ten year bond. Same thing US bonds twenty foreign stocks sixty US stock sixty five cash seventeen so in money in the mattress same thing. So it'd be reasonable argue that people would prefer a slow erosion or bleeding of wealth to a sharp loss. And in this case T-Bills do indeed look safest on these metric. Wchs. However, the slower Rosena bonds might appear less painful first glance, but consider the analogy of the frog and the boiling water. I hear this might be an urban myth. But we'll keep with the analogy as it goes through a frog in a pot of boiling water feel the pain and jump right out. But if you put them in a pot of cool water and slowly turn on the burner. For frog will remain until boils this slow Rosen of wealth with T-Bills a bit like frog sitting in water that simmering towards the boil pause and briefly recap at this point. It's clear there's no single asset. That is guaranteed to preserve your wealth. The best we've done is lose half of your money. What now is there a way to combine assets to build a minimum loss portfolio? Asset allocation strategies have long been known to reduce risk for a portfolio at large. So what's the worst drawdown we've seen with the venerated sixty forty portfolio? You still lose fifty percent. All right. Great. What have we expand the global sixty forty a little bit better minus forty six percent chose the benefits diverse. -cation? We still lost almost half. How about adding real assets? Like gold is alcohol looks a little bit like the global market portfolio. We talk a lot about and discuss in our book gloss location, which free download go to Cambrian vestments dot com. We give up a little real return. But we lower our max drawdowns, so it's a bit of a mixed bag. So for example, the real return on sixty forty as five and a half percent global sixty forty four point eight in the global Mark portfolio of four point four. But the max raw decreases from minus fifty four percent to minus forty six to minus thirty nine so a little better. But again doesn't really get us there where we wanna go all points take away, which I think is vastly understated by almost every investor on the planet. Nearly every allocation or every single asset class will likely declined by at least a third on a real basis and probably more in your lifetime. Let that settle in for minute. That's a hard pill for many to swallow. But at least you have this knowledge a head of time, which will hopefully let you Tippett and better weather the storm if and when does happen. So why does matter our T T-Bills still the safest you might have listen to this and say, okay, you've been real race on China and show me that every asset class portfolios still susceptible to use drawdowns. So if it's all bad, then I might as well start back at the beginning. T- Bill to offer the lowest drawdowns that's world park. My wealth. I'm gonna propose an alternative and part of this has been inspired by a friend, Danny gonna betterment who puts a lot of his cash and savings to work investing. So give him a little hat tip here and source. Studies are showing that historically an investor can combine diversified global market portfolio with some cash to produce an outcome was similar loss levels as T-Bills but yield much greater returns. So if you go back to nineteen twenty six to twenty eighteen and you look at the real return, we're gonna look at mattress T-Bills, and then putting two-thirds in global Mark portfolio third and cash as an example. The return cash minus three real return mattress strategy. So Bank zero percent or under the mattress minus three percent per year cash half a percent per year. So better you basically tread water with inflation? But if you invest in stocks and bonds and realize sets and some cash, you know, third and cash you're up to three point two percent real per year. So if you frame this as a savings account rather than investing account, you have three choices you lose three percent. A year you make half percent a year or you earn three point two percent per year seems to be a clear choice, particularly when you look at the max drawdown max draw down on mattress is you all your money. So ninety seven percent the metro down on cash is you lose half the max raw down on our global asset allocation, plus cash portfolio us thirty seven percent. So not only do you have lower real return draw. Down. You have three percent higher returns. So on both instances is a better savings vehicle, and this goes to a lot of the takeaways of modern investing. I think it's marketing prominent people said look to their Bank accounts at no, I'm seeing my investment brokerage account. I'm going to rebrand that in my head is savings. You have a totally different approach the way you think about say look it's going to bounce around. But hell T-Bills are going to bounce around loose half. So I wanna minimize my chance of drawdown and Elena maximize my chance of savings yield. So in this scenario investing two-thirds, the global market portfolio gets you a much better yield well over two percent higher than cash T-Bills. So if you if you were to say, okay, I'm gonna -ssume that T-Bills right now, we'll do two and a half percent. This get you up to five or six percent yield. How many people would take that almost everyone? Right. And you said it's gonna lose less. You may have to do. Little bit more volatility. But at least stork we speaking the losses in return them Rivera, similar, of course, as with a lot of stuff that map talks about speaking third person that I talk about whether it's Cape ratio dividends. This philosophical departure for many. It's kind of like you gotta take the blue pill to leave. What I'm saying here mini conservative vessels will continue to keep their safe money and savings account that earns T-bill returns. But is that really the safest place where it history with Jess and investing across a broad global portfolio with some cash has actually been safer allocation than T-Bills alone now about that high-spending child and their derelict spouse, that's another problem. PS? You guys know I love using Tren since that's an active strategy. I left it out this discussion as well as any other tilts towards value momentum all the things we talked about in the trinity portfolio white paper. However, if you add in allocating of trend in lieu of or in addition to cash, historically, hypothetically would have helped the benefit of increased returns with even lower drawdown. You can read more about that in our white paper trinity portfolio again free to download online and for those you who don't care about minimizing losses.

Fulgencio Batista Pt. 2: Cuba

"January nineteen fifty seven santiago de kuba. Fourteen year old williams so layers heart was pounding as he ran past an abandoned construction site. He could hear his friends screaming. And soldiers yelling. William knew what happened to people who stood up to president full hence co battista. He'd seen the body's swinging and trees. He'd heard about the people who left for work and never came home any moment that could be him. William and his friends had been accused of helping. Fidel castro's twenty sixth of july movement. And even though there was no evidence against them military could still arrest them. All they needed was the rumor. All of a sudden soldier grabbed william and shoved him into a room. Another soldier kicked him in. The stomach shouting. Tell us what you know about. The twenty sixth of july movement. We know you helped with their attacks but william just gritted his teeth. He wasn't going to tell them anything. Williams body was discovered in an empty lot the next day another victim fool. Nco batista's brutal authoritarian regime. Welcome to dictators a spotify original from park. Podcast i'm richard and i'm kate. You can find all episodes of dictators and all other spotify originals from podcast for free on spotify this season. We're exploring the reins of twentieth century. Audio's fool nco battista cuba one perron of argentina and francisco franco of today. We'll continue our look at full. Nco batista of cuba last week. We explored batista's quest for power as he rose from ambitious but impoverished soldier to reform minded politician and how after a brief term as president he retired to the beaches of florida. This week. we'll discover how batista returned to cuba and seized power once more becoming as corrupt and violent the men before him and will explore. How a young dissident lawyer was able to inspire thousands to bring batista's regime to an end. We'll have all that and more coming up for nearly a decade full. Nco batista was the most powerful man in cuba after leading a coup in nineteen. Thirty three. He spent years enacting social reforms as well as enriching himself through deals with american tycoons but by nineteen forty four batista's popularity had declined many saw him as becoming too corrupt so he decided to leave power peacefully before he became a victim of a cool like previous presidents but batista couldn't quit cuba forever. After four years. He returned home determined to prove to himself that he hadn't lost his people's love. He decided to run for president again in. Nineteen fifty two. But the cuba he'd returned to wasn't exactly the cuba he'd left behind as election day. Drew near batista was horrified when he saw the polls he the beloved leader who had brought democracy to cuba was trailing in a distant third place but teesta couldn't understand why he was even polling behind the authentic. Oh party whose outgoing president carlos prio soka ross had allowed corruption and graft to continue. Did the people forget that batista was the one who brought democracy to cuba back in nineteen thirty three or that. It was his social welfare programs. That the people benefited from batista refused to be humiliated with a loss on election day so he decided to take matters into his own hands. Batista got in touch with his friends and supporters in the military. Many of them were also fed up with the corruption of the current government. They missed the days when the military had been the real source of power. If batista wanted to do something about it they would get in line behind him. All he had to do was give the order so in the early hours of march tenth. Nineteen fifty two months before the election was due to happen. Batista mobilized the military under a handful of loyal officers one of batista's lieutenants took a few men to the presidential palace and demanded president. Prios surrender instead. The guards fired on them. Killing the lieutenant brio immediately realized a military coup was underway. But before he could act batista's men's surrounded the palace with squads of troops with machine guns and armored cars pre-owned knew his time was up so instead of standing his ground he and a handful of his closest associates escaped to the mexican embassy when batista at the presidential palace it was empty with minimal bloodshed full. Ncobra sta was once again in charge of cuba by morning. The news of the coup was out and batista moved quickly to reassure the people that everything was okay. He falsely claimed he acted in order to stop a forthcoming coup by prio but teesta felt it was his job to intervene in. All of this was temporary and that elections would come once the corruption was gone. Of course the only way to get the job done was total control. And that meant squashing. Anyone who opposed his authority until there could be elections. Batista created a provisional government and suspended constitutional rights then to prevent conflict with the labor movement but teesta made a deal with the head of the country's largest trade union. Use savio mu how. He got to keep his job. You made sure there was no general strike. Next came the americans. They didn't love that. Batista had staged a military coup but since batista had always been friendly to american business. It only took the us a few weeks to recognize. Batista's government batista's strengthen relations by making it clear he would be an anti-communist force in latin america. He knew this was the. Us biggest interest in the cold war era and it was a goal. Batista shared the primary resistance. He faced came from leftist groups of students and young professionals like the f. e. u. which were based at the university of havana. These student groups had been stockpiling weapons as a precaution. In case opposition parties folded when batista took over one of these groups called the national revolutionary movement decided. It was their job to fight back. Of course the students stood little chance against the will trained and well armed military when they attacked government forces in the streets of havana. In early april the army and police easily arrested them but even though the students were no real threat but teesta painted them as dangerous radicals to both the americans and the general public as a way to justify continued martial law as for the rest of the cuban people most of them just shrugged at batista's coup a flailing economy rising poverty and government corruption had beaten the people down batista actually felt like a return to normalcy batista's social welfare programs in the nineteen thirties and forties have been popular and he had largely stuck to his word in the past when it came to holding elections. Perhaps this really was just a temporary housecleaning. Batista leaned into this promising to root out the gangsterism of prios government and put the focus back on the people he wouldn't allow corrupt businessmen to steal from and mistreat workers but batista had no intention of actually following through on these promises. His interests were now purely his own instead of helping the workers. Batista's focus was on making deals with american tycoons with kickbacks for himself of course he let us companies like united fruit by up moorland and gave them even better trade deals without enforcing any of the worker protections that had once made him popular and he didn't only work with legitimate us businessmen in early nineteen fifty-three batista got in touch. with notorious. american gangster lansky the two had become good friends during batista's years in florida and now he had a job for the mobster. He wanted him to help. Turn cuba's tourism. Industry around landscape had been operating casinos and nightclubs for years. He developed a reputation in the us. For his honest well run casinos and with batista's backing he'd be able to do the same for the nightlife in cuba lansky immediately got to work. He and his fellow mobsters poured money into cuba's hospitality. Industry renovating old hotels building. New ones and constructing casinos. He booked the biggest american performers from frank sinatra to ginger rogers and brought in celebrity chefs soon. The rich and famous from europe and north america were descending upon the island rubbing shoulders with cuba zone elite but teesta lansky and all of their associates. Were raking in cash. And as long as he kept the american tycoons happy batista could do whatever he wanted but he had estimated his own people after more than a decade of democracy they recognized his cronyism and corruption for what it was he had promised to restore constitutional rights and call an election within a matter of months but after a year. It's still hadn't happened every time. Batista postponed an election. He angered more and more people but he didn't care. He thought he could take down anyone who tried to stop him. what he didn't realise. Was that a new and stronger. Opposition movement was brewing led by a young lawyer who'd given up on trying to work within the system. Fidel castro coming up batista faces an opponent. He can't buy off listeners.

Nco batista led a military coup. That put him back in power and cuba batista promised he'd hold new elections soon. But by the summer of nineteen fifty-three nothing had happened. He claimed that he couldn't call an election until he had successfully stabilized the country but instead of working towards democracy fifty two year old batista was living the high life. He threw extravagant parties at his mansion and brush shoulders with american celebrities. Mobster run casinos. He peacock for gossip. Magazines held private movie screenings and wave two adoring fans. Meanwhile the opposition simmered at the end of july nineteen fifty three. They decided to strike on the morning of july twenty six. The city of santiago de cuba was sleeping off the hangover of the previous night's carnival celebration while they slept more than one hundred fifty armed. Revolutionaries attacked the moncada. Army barracks led by a twenty six year. Old dissident lawyer fidel castro. His younger brother. Raoul and a handful of their friends. The attack was intended to show that the batista regime wasn't as omnipotent as it seemed castro. Hope that once they had control of an army barracks they'd be able to unify all the smaller opposition groups and fight back with real firepower with their encouragement. The people would rise up for a return to democracy but the attack didn't go as planned. The revolutionaries weren't prepared to face off against trained soldiers. The rebellion quickly turned into a massacre within a matter of hours. Dozens of the rebels had surrendered. Unfortunately the soldiers didn't stop there at batista's orders the military brutally tortured most of the insurgents before murdering them in total around sixty eight rebels were killed and in the days that followed more suspected. Collaborators were arrested and never seen again but instead of suppressing dissent. The government's response backfired. People were horrified by the reu talapity and took to the streets in protest. By the time. Castro was arrested. Several days later the moncada attack had become a flash point for the frustration with batista's regime to try and ease. Tensions batista decided to keep castro alive. And give him a proper trial. The government would be seen as fair and reasonable and would see that rebellions only resulted in death in prison. However when castro's trial rolled around in october nineteen fifty-three batista's started to suspect that he might have been a bit too confident. During his trial. Castro gave a fiery four hour speech condemning the brutal podesta regime he branded batista a tyrant and declared that the cuban people needed to follow in the footsteps of other democratic revolutions and overthrow him when the court sentenced castro to fifteen years in prison. He said it didn't matter. History would absolve him overnight. The previously unknown castro became a folk hero even from behind bars. He was inspiring. The cuban people here was someone who had attacked the military but teesta stronghold and come away unbroken the teesta realized that he had to prove castro's attacks were wrong so a few weeks after castro's trial. He announced that the elections would be held a year later on november first nineteen fifty four. After the election. Cuba suspended constitution would be restored even better though he announced that political parties would no longer need a minimum number of registered supporters. In order to run candidates. He wanted everyone to be able to participate in cuban democracy in reality. The new rule was a clever. Pr move that handicapped batista's competition by allowing every possible political party to run candidates. It would be almost impossible for any of them to gain a larger share of the vote. Then batista's party but most cubans didn't realize this. They saw it as batista finally following through on his promise. Perhaps he had just needed a nudge from castro to return to the civic minded cuban patriot they remembered however opposition groups were still wearing and in a move to placate the. Us batista made the communist party illegal despite still having working relationships with many of the party's leaders meanwhile cuba's two leading opposition parties. Were slit on whether they should participate in the elections at all. Some felt participating would legitimize batista's regime even if he called it a fair and democratic election. It was obvious that batista was doing everything he could do to remain in power so the opposition parties decided to boycott the election in protest over the coming months. All the candidates dropped out one by one a november first nineteen fifty four fool. Nco stow was once again elected president of cuba. Though it was a hollow victory. He was the only candidate still in the race. Still teesta leaned into the trappings of his election as much to convince himself of its legitimacy as to convince the rest of the country he held a grand inauguration in february nineteen fifty five and that same month enjoyed a visit from us vice president richard nixon nixon's presence and congratulatory. Toasts reminded everyone that batista had. Us support behind him. Anyone who might have been inspired by. Fidel castro's moncada attack new. They wouldn't stand a chance against the us military so for the most part. No one challenged the outcome of the election but before he settled into another term of corruption batista decided to make one more bid for the hearts of the cuban people in may nineteen fifty five. He announced a general amnesty for dissidents exiles and political prisoners fidel castro his followers and everyone else batista's regime had locked up were released but teesta wanted to prove that in the wake of the election. Cuba had the political liberties of a democracy. The country was starting a new chapter and fool hence yo batista was writing it but the teesta was no longer the populist leader who traveled around the country trying to bring about social reforms. He was an aging dictator. Who is losing touch with the people. Everyone saw the way he led. American companies exploit cuban workers and land. And how the mob run casinos took advantage of tourism. When batista let the twenty sixth of july rebels go free he had no idea just how popular fidel castro's message might become coming up. Batista loses his grip on cuba. Now back to the story when full. Nco battista released all political prisoners in may nineteen fifty five. He was trying to prove that his regime was supportive of democracy but he only felt comfortable releasing them because he knew the opposition couldn't hurt him. He held the country in an iron grip. Batista had given the military intelligence service or l. seem free rein to deal with violent dissidents as they saw fit any opposition group. That was organized would quickly find itself. Targeted the futility of the situation was obvious to fidel castro. After he was released from prison he feared that he'd be assassinated in a matter of months so he went into self-imposed in mexico. Meanwhile most other opposition leaders still wanted to trust batista's move toward democracy later that year. The opposition parties urged batista to hold new elections the following year in nineteen fifty-six. This time they would all participate but teesta had no intention of meeting their demands. Sure he wanted people to feel like they had a voice but they weren't actually allowed to have any power. The other political parties didn't realize they were purely cosmetic. It seemed the only people left in cuba who weren't buying into batista's false democracy where the leftist student groups and the longer batista stayed in power the more radical became in early nineteen fifty-six the street violence between the student radicals and the military spiraled into an all out war but more damaging than the student agitators was a conspiracy within batista's own bastion of support the military working class soldiers families were being hurt by batista's policies working conditions were still dangerous and exploitative and the only people in cuba making good money were the elites and the american tycoons so a faction of military plotted to overthrow the government. Losing the support of soldiers was indicative of a far bigger problem. Batista's popularity across the country was tanking but instead of listening to his soldiers complaints but teesta responded as he always did with force. Approximately two hundred members of the military were arrested for the conspiracy. Once again cuba was out of control. Students were dying in the streets and disappearing into prisons. Never to be seen again. The opposition leaders exhorted but he stood to bring an end to the turmoil but batista refuse to engage with them to capitulate would show weakness. The more cuba's slip through his grasp the tighter he tried to hold on but the failure to reach any sort of compromise only radicalized more cubans those who had previously found. Fidel castro's armed rebellion. Too extreme started to think that perhaps he had been right with each passing day. Insurrections sounded more and more appealing on december second. Nineteen fifty six. Fidel castro's sailed into eastern cuba with eighty-one men. His plan was to rally an army to take on batista instead he and his men stumbled into a military battalion and were almost wiped out but word of the incident spread quickly and people across the country. Were inspired the twenty six. Th of july movements ranks swelled. the year was bloody the movement carried out more attacks batista's military and on american nightclubs. The goal was to shake loose. American support of batista's regime. The military responded with brutality known opponents of the government disappeared from their homes l. Seem hung suspected collaborators. From trees in warning and tortured others for information soon. Anyone who'd ever spoken out was being targeted. The breaking point came in early nineteen fifty seven when the bodies of fourteen year old william so layer and three others were found in an empty lot in santiago de kuba. It was clear that the boys had been tortured to death by even ordinary cubans. Who had tried to stay neutral. Were horrified by the murders of children. The nation erupted in protest. But these responded to the civil disobedience like cracking down even harder on dissent all across the country the bodies of executed people lined the roads. A reminder of what happened when you spoke out against batista and yet the people didn't give up much of their hopes stemmed from fidel castro with each passing day more and more cubans were inspired to join his guerrilla army and in february nineteen fifty seven. The new york times published. An interview with fidel castro. Somehow castro was able to smuggle an american reporter up to his hideout in the sierra maestra mountains to write a glowing profile of him overnight. The freedom fighter became a celebrity but for full nco batista. Castro was nothing more than a side. Show the twenty. Sixth of july movement was still no match for the cuban military. In batista's mind. It was only a matter of time before castro was killed. What he didn't realise was that his power was beginning to wane on march. Nineteen fifty seven several dozen members of the revolutionary directorate broke into the presidential palace intending to assassinate batista. Batista managed to escape just in time. Most of the assassins were killed by government forces during the attack or shortly thereafter and with batista's blessing l. Seen used the attempt as an excuse to arrest and disappear a number of other known dissidents even if they didn't have a hand in the plot but teesta hoped the failure of the assassination attempt would put an end to the sudden upswing in protests. Unfortunately batista's violence angered the one ally. He desperately needed the united states between the new york times profile on castro and the post assassination attempt violence. The us realized that batista was becoming a problem. There alliance projected the image of the us supporting authoritarian so in an attempt to distance themselves from batista. The us placed an arms embargo against cuba without the us military behind him. Batista's of holding onto power. Weakened castro's rag tag group of guerrilla fighters. Roughly three hundred strong at this point might have had a real shot at toppling him in late. May of nineteen fifty eight but teesta force of the cuban army against the rebels hoping to quash them quickly but by then it was too late. Castro's guerrillas had already gained widespread support and their numbers were growing steadily. They were taking over the country acre by acre and with each passing day the soldiers will to keep fighting against the rebels. Deflate it by november nineteen fifty eight. It was clear that batista's regime was collapsing. New elections were scheduled and batista hope to retain power through his chosen successor. But fidel castro ordered his supporters not to participate in the sham election. The people listened and a good portion of the country stayed home from the polls recognizing that the political winds were changing the. Us ambassador informed. Batista that the americans would not be recognizing his hand picked successor government when batista asked if he could still go back to his house in daytona beach. The ambassador told him that he would not be welcome in the united states. On new year's eve but teesta finally had to acknowledge his time was over. The twenty sixth of july movement led by argentine revolutionary. Checa vara had taken the city of santa clara. One hundred seventy five miles from havana without us support and with the rank and file of the military abandoning him. Batista knew he had no chance of maintaining control once they reached the capital that night. Batista gathered his closest friends and associates together for a new year's eve party. He informed them that he was resigning and would be leaving the country on one of his jets outside his villa. There were seats for some of them if they wanted to escape with him around to forty. Am on i nineteen fifty-nine while cuba was ringing in the new year fool. Nco batista fled cuba for the final time. His brutal reign was over when the people found out they took to the streets in celebration by the time batista fell. His regime had become known as one of the most corrupt and repressive cuba short history. Though it's impossible to know exactly how many people his enforcers murdered most agree that it's around twenty thousand. When fidel castro took over he inherited a scarred and traumatized country. All the people wanted was freedom and to have their lives back. Castro was the hero who had inspired them to stand up and fight back and they hoped he would be the one to lead them back to stability but by early nineteen sixty. It became clear that castro had plans. He rejected the american imperialism. Batista headquartered and instead aligned cuba with the soviet union and crackdown on anyone who disagreed with communism recognizing that the tide was turning and another dictator was on the rise. Tens of thousands of cubans fled to the united states though full. Nco batista wasn't welcome in the us. He found asylum in spain and portugal. Under the auspices of fellow dictators francisco franco and antonio salazar there. He spent his days writing books and articles in an attempt to explain himself and clear his name. Despite those efforts he was still hated by many when he died unexpectedly of a heart attack in nineteen. Seventy three at the age of seventy two. There were rumors that he'd beaten. Some would be assesses to the punch by just a few days. But teesta had spent his whole life working towards power and significance. He might have been pleased that his death generated such news and attention but his burial madrid's oldest cemetery alongside spanish nobility is what best exemplifies the twists and turns of batista's life. No one could have foreseen such an end for the ambitious boy from the cane plantations or for the dictator who once held cuba's fortunes in the palm of his hand while he had started out with a focus on social welfare and reform batista's own greed ultimately destroyed him and it paved the way for another different kind of dictator.

You're listening to inside of you with Michael who rose by Inside of you with Michael Rosenbaum was not recorded in front of a live studio audience. Yeah can you hear me turn off the sound? Yeah you aren't with this shit. Are you know with all this stuff happened? It's hard not to talk about it because I'm sure people are like oh I think people are interested in like. Hey what are what are the stars doing? What are the You know what a what are people doing. They're interested in like going seeing how people get through it. You deal like you get an anxiety. Is this making you anxious? You know it's Weird. This is a it's it's been a little rough for me to talk about because I you know I don't want people to have the reception. That's a fake anxiety survey concern because I'm really fortunate right now. with I feel like I've I've kind of. It's almost like prep for this for years and not intentionally but I'm just really very fortunate right now. I'm not suffering personally from this but I am still suffering from like horrible anxiety and just you know some days I just wake up and I just. I don't want to get out of bed. I don't WanNa wake up which is depressing health. And I think like to my shells like I'm feeling like this. And I'm fortunate cower. People were like suffering. Were losing everything. They house in their families are going hungry and don't even have to put food on. The table has access to food or they just don't have they've run out of money. How are they more at this? So it's like it's it's a tough thing for me to talk about openly because I don't feel like I have the right to do you know the complain or be I am. It's killing me. It hurts like personally it hurts. I'm watching people like I sent my Mama. I know this sounds like Like a petty thing but it just it broke my heart. I had to send my mom. I'll toilet paper. My mom didn't have toilet paper. She's been going to the store and waiting in line in San Francisco to get toilet paper and they won't tell her before she goes on just waiting to go in. They will tell if they have toilet paper in stock or not would just have our weight line and she goes in and she doesn't have a SOC for weeks or whatever she's in without toilet paper so I had Just embrace we hard that I have my mom twitter favor that seems like it kind of anything now not at all. It's like. I got a ninety one year old grandmother in Fort Lauderdale and you know she lost my grandfather in November on Thanksgiving and his birthday was just April Eighth. He would have been ninety four and first of all. I'm grateful that he lived that long. And use my best friend. And they were together for seventy chevelle on. I mean he's I think. Seventy five seventy six years together so she doesn't know what it's like to not be with somebody and now she's alone so no one can go there. I think my uncle recently started. Go No that. He just wasn't safe he was like. I WANT TO TAKE CHANCES. So he kind of sits like twenty feet away doesn't like you know and she's all alone. Us little you know. She's got a nice little place. It's fine but she just because Mikey I'm so bored. She's got that you know Jewish New York accents. I just I just WanNa play rummy q with somebody like this game. We can ask the Games until she's alone and she's like I'm a can you order. Can I order use of food? Can I do something? Because I've got so much food in the freezer food is from the fucking seventies. Nobody wants to. It's fine if you phrase it. It's fine definitely puts things in perspective when you're thinking about yourself look you're going through is important. It's not look I I care. I'm like you know people who are homeless. Can you imagine things getting worse for homeless people and it is? It's it's worse for everybody out there so you definitely put things in perspective but it doesn't mean that you know you don't have anxiety don't you know it's it's okay for I mean. Look I think we're all we're all freaking out a little bit here just Just such such around and just not you know. I think the unknown to as scary like not knowing when things will normalize of enormous. How bad of shape. We're going to be after this. You know to be honest with you. Break my heart that this or a lot of people will make people even more distant like there's I've never been the most social guy. There's certain social things that I really cherish like an and I said some coastal my instagram last week but the guy love going to the movie theaters like one of my favorite things in the world to do and I don't want to ever give that up. I don't Wanna I hate to think that people are not going to do those things anymore and then theaters are going go out of business such things like that and even like Baseball Game. I Lo- I look forward to be able to make baseball game national. Yeah that's my team. It's a social thing that I enjoy doing like with my friends and family and I hate to think that this will change our way arising people want social with each other anymore. I think they will. I think they will say though. I really vote cruisers. And that's coming from a guy who's really socially uncomfortable but I don't want I don't want people to be further apart. It's like our country's show ripped apart already. Don't want it to get to get worse man. And there's always those those simple things that bring together no matter where we're at with allergies or whatever but there's simple things that bring us together as a community in their things like sporting events movies concerts. You're absolutely right. So that's you know it's funny because the whole zoom thing tomorrow night I do. I'm doing a Bingo night for my friends. So it's like forty people everybody then Mosey ten bucks pots like four hundred bucks. We give some charity. You Know Ronald McDonald House or food on foot dot. Org GotTA throw those names out there. But you know and it's like sitting there watching your friends the Brady Bunch I got this fucking big bingo machine. I bought this big role or it was four hundred bucks. Like how old are you? I don't know I'm you know so I you know and it's funny because all sit there and roll the balls at inside right and I'll be like be three and then my friend Tom. We'll go big you three. He's my backup my side man my sidekick and people have a blast and it just it takes you away for an hour and you know have some laughs but it's weird. I just WANNA like. Give my friend Tom. A- hug I'd love to give you a hug me. I love to come over and give Batista Hug and uncomfortable. Hug fewers. Many hugs hugs. Ya I read something on. Your instagram is really cool. It was it wasn't long ago. Maybe a week ago says thinking of better days past and better days to come. The simple things like a ballgame like you just said with friends fam community. I can proudly say I've never taken life for granted grateful for every minute every experience every opportunity. Life's too damn precious and refuse to waste it or take it for granted wishing everyone good health and better days to come separately in this together which I thought was really cool and man. It's pretty profound. You say something like you've never taken life for granted you know. I think it's because we're a comfort. It's I think from seeing death at an early age. Like a goes from personal. I think it's It's always me just trying to make the most out of my life defy the odds like I should have been a statistic and I didn't realize that I was not going to be a statistic. I didn't make a conscious effort to say that I'm not going to be a statistic. Thought was almost thirty was almost dirty. I was in my botch Blocking Reddin step foot out on my block was just kindy. Ceo's worked in the streets in knows about when I was thirty. When I said I just can't do this identity. Make some noise and so yeah I stand by. I just I love life. I just don't take it for granted anything. I don't take the things that I've been fortunate to have. Our accomplish of opportunities are still taken for granted. Sh- really appreciative guy. I anybody knows you. We'll say that you know those people those those folks that have faced such adversity when you see stared death in the face you know and like three people died on your front lawn or something like that. You're a bouncer. You seen as dark as it can get in a lot of ways right so there had to be a moment where you're like anything better than this is awesome anything every moment that came to you after those terrible moments all wow. I didn't get in a fight today. Oh why didn't see someone by today but look I know a lot of things I look at all the shit you're doing too and that's gotta be hard. It's like you got all these projects and I see in pre production and all the things you and you don't stop and you WANNA keep moving right. You started everything later in life and I am. I always like I'm under the time Crunchy on under the crunchers. Fires like Geo getting older. I'm not getting a younger join. You constantly need to keep working to make things happen because I I know and I because I'm a realist. I realized that someday you know the phone could be ringing. You know people are not GonNa be calm you know jobs and yes. I just don't. I don't take for granted night I wanNA take advantage of. I love the opportunity opportunity. Like one of my favorite words. If I'm given opportunity man I'll just run it down just a so that. Yeah certain things like this we. That's what what I mean when I say that I'm afraid of the unknown so I don't know when this was all going to go. I don't WanNa know what I'm going to work you know. I'm losing opportunities that I had like my film. Mice by that should have been released Was Not you know obviously not able to be released? Theaters knows really part of it. Because Sandwich I feel might develop show Amazon eventually it will be released but I just I wanted to. Fighting units in. The theaters is proud. I am Upset with any and as you should be it was just the worst timing ever. We're supposed to be released on the eleventh of March or something. So what are you GONNA do? That's the thing you kinda go. Okay this is the situation you know. It's funny as I sound stupid man but I learned this and it does work. I thought it would never work but I remember fired off some job years ago and I remember just things along the way it's like. Oh this didn't happen or other and I just go start to think immediately. What are you grateful for stop? What are you grateful for? What are you grateful before we got going? You got to. You got to awesome dogs all right. You got this. You got cool. Grandmother's ninety one. Okay you got and you just start somehow. Psychologically the brain it works if you just keep telling yourself positive things do that or you. Kind of like fought far. Faulk YOU WANNA throw somebody out of everybody else. Not You know I'm human and I would add something doesn't happen the way I envisioned my head. I you know I get upset. I am that Guy. Which is ill boats back earlier when I say that I like I never would it be? I never wanted to have for people to have the perception of MIA's Ishihara. Monin now doesn't come off trust me. Hey did Maggie Nali would you say They're kind of like a godsend for this for this shit going on. Tlc about your dog. Could you save these guys right? Yeah yeah well. What I did was I kept them together. Because they're so they're litter mates and so when they were first brought to the shelter. They immediately With him up they were trying to adopt them out and they'd never been apart in their life. Show a local organization found out about it and they knew that I had room and experience with pit bull so they asked me if I adopted up to keep them together and so that's what I did. I think eventually because they're just such great dog. Somebody probably would have adopted them. It just probably would have adopted them separately because you know most people is hard for them to take one but little two big dogs just a but they are a godsend. I got. I'm relating them to so I'm you know I've been hearing from a lot of people that now. They're home with their kids all day and they're just going nuts and that's how I am. What the dogs like their glittery. The driving me nuts is most of the time. It's all talk great. I Love Them. But they're so hyper in their side feeling the more. I'm around the needier. They are to start getting very demanding over. My attention over space is just. I feel like the more the more they come now. They're wining they WANNA walk outside.

Admittedly I am really bad at this. I get so lose my phone or forget my phone from where I get pure like anxiety attacks like I'm losing Lucille is. That's not good. I hate to admit it. I hate to say it out loud but I feel instantly disconnected like I missed or something. I can't touch I actually. I did lose my phone. I was on my bike and I was rushing to. We've done a screening of ice by now's on the highway now was flying on my bike and my phone flying out and so. I didn't have my phone and I was having so much anxiety about it so I went later back to the highway and I didn't turn my bike off. I left it. I left the battery on and I went for an hour looking for my phone and I found pieces of it. Came back and my bike. My bike was yet so now. I'm up on the highway with transportation but yeah I'm so addicted thickens. Here's the reality. I know we're all on our phones and you got the instagram's and the tick tock and the podcast and everything and it's just like we're constantly on that. But what does as much as you think it connects us and do do I do too. I'm not fucking preaching. It disconnects us so for sure. So you go out to. Dinner is still Just wanted to say oh. Yeah Oh yeah it is. It's like heroine dude. It's fucking here when I wonder if people could just do it for a day. I mean we were all doing it before two thousand when it cell phones. Come out even remember when I was used. Still use of a sucker. And how is your? How is your doubtless? Is it was? It was good. I just you know the phones you know. These cell phones are just you know. They're convenience I I am not guilty of I can sit a dinner without a phone. I I love. I'm going out to dinner with Shit. I WanNa talk with them and enjoy the evening. I I I stick my nose up at a table full of people on their phones. I also don't like my best friend. Jonathan is kids will not go down there. They'll sit new every meal all day long on their phones and it drives me insane and he knows it drives you know. There's a rule that we do with my friends. We when we're having breakfast or something. Everybody puts the phone in the middle and no one touches it in the first one who grabs her phone pays for the whole fucking table. I love that she had split up. Or or whatever as hey look everybody look at that guys. We had a conversation. You didn't need your phone and here's the thing. My Grandma's like you didn't hear your phone ring. I never ever have my ringer on or my texts. I look I figure I look at my phone enough that if I look at it twenty minutes and I got a text or respond. I don't need to hear it ringing and doing the shit constantly and digging my friend Joe. I love Ding to notification. From whatever like eight million things every second macabre fucker doing anything with your life. No I don't I don't get any of those either. My phone's always silence. I don't get any social media notifications but yeah. I totally addicted to my phone. But I do I will sit down. Sit Down an important times. Have A conversation. Inner you'RE GONNA you won't use it now. I make check it. If you don't see if you've got to go to the bathroom look at muscle or if I got really boring. I was boring. He'd like you know Rosie you can ha- you'd be on your phone. Honestly I know I am too did you ever did you get your neck ever heard some being on your phone run the Kirch from wrestling. You don't think it adds to it during the Guy was watching some highlights of your stuff and when they announce your name. I don't think I mean enrolls I've seen you explode with an answer. Energy like you know as drax brings like that but when I watch you when they announced Bautista the when you came out there do you think that was the biggest high you've ever had is that those arenas when they announced it was at the biggest high ever had? Louis it's a drug Pure that's why used to come out do my interest in I I got this from us. Shamed McMahon Shane McMahon. He's son adventures arrests. But he's always say my coming out. It's like it's like it's like Carolyn. Carolyn I used to answer for that but yeah absolutely. It's it's it's a high performing in. It's all that energy from the live audience with people screaming and cheering. Yes it's pure pure I also think man you it's like I don't know if it was in a dream or not and if I was dreaming about you but if you ever like I'm sure it's happened but you're in the ring with someone right and and by the way. I didn't know that you had the longest reign as world heavyweight champion for two hundred eighty two days. Wwe's that real the true. Yeah Yeah with that particular title that. I didn't know that it's pretty. That's awesome dude. That's totally awesome. Yeah I dropped it because I got injured really bad and I wasn't able to perform anymore had to get surgery room sideways. Talk about depression then Yeah it was It's weird. It was depressing me because I was under the same mindset injury. I always out my career until like maybe the last year my career. I always thought I was one bad match away from being fired. I was always worried about my job about a job. Which is why I was so so driven. I worked so hard. 'cause I you know I was like my last shot. And she's my last chance of being a success. It something so my life so I was always just fear of losing my job. Getting that's how it is with your acting career. Now feel that same way. You're so driven. You want to be so great maybe just part of you. I think it's I think right. Now it's It's I'm obsessed with becoming a better actor a guy just obsessed with acting I just and it's hard for me because I can't. I can't get better if I'm not working. I'm an on the job learning actors. I'm not working. I'm not learning. I'm like I'm so hungry to learn this craft of acting. I'm obsessed with it and so it's more that because it's never for me acting has never really been about being famous or a paycheck. It's really just been. I've just been obsessed with become a coming a better actor. This is still a struggle for me. That's funny you say about Fehmi said famous overwhelming symptoms. I just want to crawl under a rock and Hyde D. Do you really feel like that. Do you feel like even at premieres. Do you feel that you feel like you don't belong? Is it feel that what is it? Yeah it's all the above. I've always been really socially awkward But it's I don't know it's just. It's it's a bit overwhelming for me. Just I mean to be honest with you. Why live here in Tampa? It's very removed from everything. Richard removed from spotlight of any kind. Such a normal life but even here have you know a pretty big property surrounded by a great big gate weeks me even further removed. But I like it I like. I like the solitude which is why we're seeing early. It feels like I've always been prepped for this guy was social distancing like way before it was necessary. Yeah right I was talking about that dream I had or or maybe it was a thought or whatever but I was like I wonder if you ever like maybe wrestlers in general that you I know I kind of go all over the place. But that's how my mind works past thinking accidentally hurt someone who's actually elbow either need to get that high. 'cause you're going so fast and things happen that you're you're like fuck dude. I'm three hundred pounds or whatever or I don't know how your but I hit him and I'm like during the match thinking. Oh fuck you. They had heard. Oh my God did you ever get down there and go to them so sorry. I'm fucking sorry. You whisper in my bad fucking hit the balls do something what do you what do you do? That's well that's happened to you. I was pretty lucky that way and also it was almost a hindrance early on my career because I was so afraid of hurting someone that I appear to be a non aggressive which professional wrestling just doesn't help your career had I but I did. I just didn't want hurt. Anybody Casino that's kind of. That's that's part of our job. As we have to protect the people were working with because they also need to make a living. They need to go out and perform show. It's really a fine line but there were a couple times where there was any randy Orton. I wrestled and I hit a really hard any sold at nine new. I don't really hard and I was trying to get coastal to apologize to him. Frank kept punching him and then I hit him hard again. I'm going to start the war. I'm trying to apologize. The harder getting flooded just like smacks musicals. Just get the fuck away from me. Oh my God. It was warmer than it was another guy as Ron Simmons who I thumbed in the eye. Watch my son. Like go up in his eyelid. Nice out for nearly desio horrible but at the time I was a rookie in the sky was former world. Champion at respective everybody the arm and getting fired and this guy's GonNa kill me inside. Go backstage night. I start to apologize to Michael Brown Ron Man. I'm so so so sorry man he goes for what I said. Nah I don't you in. The eye goes not just had some sweat mind like he just would not sell. It made me feel bad. He just wouldn't you just like just one of those things just happens. He didn't feel bad about her controversial where everybody just let it go. So what about you? What about you have you ever been hitting you mother fucker? Yeah there was a few times a couple of times I never really got pissed about it. because usually it was just one of those things you either you know. Somebody's being real stiff. They works. You know everyone's trying to tell them to lighten up But it never really. I never minded being physical. Either Guide never A guy named triple h said to me early on in my career. He said we get a lot of money to be shit out of each other. I was. That's a very fair statement. I era the crowds. Get their money's worth. It's not you know this theater violence. That's the way I always looked at it so I'd never mind mine. I'd rather it looked to fiscal rather than looking to fake show. I never really minded but yeah I've been pushed hard and beat up pretty good and cutting you know I don't mind being beaten up by just When a guy injuries you that's something else because that's happened as well but I also Night on you know point fingers. But I've had guys put me in the hospital Had Surgery at the fault of other people and I never. Did you know wrestling again? I did I did I wrestle again. I worked with him. I never took it personally. I was just jumping. You just come back and you move on if the company's fault not gonNA blame them that I'm not do you do you guys. You just like the has to be. Because I've acted with some guys have done several like I fucking hate that guy. I just fucking Dick guys just a lot of those guys. Especially when you're working under you know that type of environment word skirt a totem pole Environment as changed a lot but when I was breaking into a sewer was very much. A total does hierarchy. Then you had to take crap from assholes telling some guys advantage of it and they were beliefs because they could get away with it. Did you ever get into real altercation with another are yeah I got in a fight with a guy named booker? T. Really ILLO zoos. It was a personal issue was personal issue but the thing that really bothers me about that watch altercation as she started a fight with me when I was injured in ocean. We got into it anyway. I always thought it was really really low of Start a fight with me when I knew I was injured. You know even if he was pissing me or not. You know you don't play you just dealing with an injury right but it's almost like trying to pick a fight with guy on the ice exhausted. He's about to get off the ice you just got. Let's go did.

Who's your favorite wrestler of all time overall all time Long when I was younger it was arrested named warlord assumes my favorite I love this kind of and as I got older probably if I had to pick a guy right now whose wife thought was like probably the best ever be triple H. I think he's probably the best wrestler. That's guess talked all the time. Y'All talk a good what's up with triple. H Be a good interview. Bit Great Interview. Yeah he's interested in his own is obsessed with wrestling. I don't know you know how interesting interview would be outside of wrestling. Because I don't know if I've ever really heard him talk about anything other arrested right. That could be loves bodybuilding. I know that did I ever told you but I used to love that guy. He wasn't a wrestler but remember brother Love. He'd say Dave Teesta. I Love A dad. Don't mean last US. Having autographed picture from the addresses. Were really rather love. I was thinking I know why you work because you by the way you just watch certain roles and you just like when you say you work so hard you see it like I have the first thing I told James and I saw guardians to was but he showed by mile. I mean everybody's great teased. I couldn't take my eyes off. He's the funniest fucking thing I've ever seen like. He's so funny. I can't I told you that but I was just like. You're you're so good you're comedic timing and just the way it was done. I'm like I don't know why you wouldn't work forever. You know I mean you just a likeable and your great do you WanNa do. 'cause you've been doing a lot of comedy and doing a lot of comedy. Do you want to get like? I don't know I haven't seen the show see on apple the the I haven't seen that his dark dark dark. Very post apocalyptic It's very much a character. Role me It's you know my you know what I really want to do. Is just like drama? I like just just regular say I wanna see that? It's almost like a character like rooker. Did Henry Portugal serial killer. Something just like that. You know you could. You could pull that shit from the past out. You have that in your you know what I mean like. Those are hard to get a hold of but I'm constantly searching for them But Yeah I'm limited. Sometimes it's it's just really hard to get people to look outside of boxing. See someone like myself in those roles but I'm always in pursuit. Funny who in Hollywood would have thought day. Batista GonNa be fucking genius. Who has seriously any agent or you know studio watches Guardians. Goes he's hilarious. This guy's got chops. So did you think when you're wrestling and you're thinking okay. I'm going to try and Trans Transition and acting and I remember we had those conversations and you know I should leave. Should I leave your across? You didn't know if you do this. You're gonNA ruin your crew. You're never going to be an actor in all the shit that we taught you guys can listen to that in the first interview. Thinking did. Someone's going to hire me in a blockbuster marvel movie and I'm going to be comedic. Gifted did you ever. Could you ever say in my reasoning for that is because so studios? It's going to happen if they would have imagined that. So why can't they imagine the WHO as like the tough guy? The I never nine never would have thought that in a million years in it's weird. I is the role the role in the first and the first You know the first one was James Gunn rewrote and dragsters written very differently than the second one. The second one I think James Kinda tapped into my humor a little bit on a first order and and decided that he wanted to put more than the second one but the first Rome like the comedic stuff was. It was a challenge for me like I. I struggled with it and some of that stuff. They reshot like the nothing goes over my head because they really want to get a sense of drax means such a literal character With the stuff in the first film that I look forward to was like the dramatic stuff like talking about like his family. Being you know murdered travel like that stuff like that seen the really a heart scene was was cut out. It was cut out of the film because it was it was just kinda slow and dark but that was kind of stuff. I was forward too. I never would have thought. Nah I still don't i. It's hard for me. I don't find myself funny in it's So it's hard for me to you know but I would like to what I WANNA do is. I want to do around come. I think I've talked about this. I want to do a Rom Com Christian Shaw more than anything in the world. Like I'm dying to come. I will get this done. I love it. It's up to you some wrestler Blah Blah. She falls in love that you're not the Kinda guy she would ever day. It'll these tasks. What is that. And you're like this one means mom but this would means fuck mom and she's like. Oh my God I would never date this guy. And there's something charming and lovable about you. It's kind of like that. Rocky relationship with Adrian was like you know it's the only guy in the world that can get away with their at a zoo in the dead of winter and he goes you know a what are you doing for the next fifty easy life is why. I am when my Marion me too much. You know what I mean. You can play that romantic level. I mean it's got to be something like that where you could just be that charming comedic but I could see that I could see that we we toss around a few ideas. One of them was along along those lines of me being a prowrestler which I'm not at all opposed to whatever be endearing. Make people laugh but I think we would just make the most unlikely looking couple ever love her and I love working with her. She's actually I think she's not giving nearly enough credit for how talented she isn't. She's she's amazing and I love working with open on set with her. It's just so fun so hopefully we can make it happen because I really wanted to. I hope that it will happen. I hope it will happen. It will happen. I mean Y- you've done already where you've come from it. Nothing's going to surprise me if you told me you're running for president tomorrow let's get started. I knew it. I was talking rough. You up roughly roughly. Your feathers are these are these are shit talking for my patrons as shit talking with Rosenbaum. This is just a couple of questions. You don't have to get real deep you just they're gonna ask you some questions and you just you know. Rosh. Do you have a favorite tattoo. Yeah a portrait of of my dogs that are sprayed with Iran all right Jason L. favorite wrestler to work with again it'd be be triple h triple H Mark A. What was your honest reaction? I don't even know what this means. Blue Teesta is so I what we did this? Pay Per view Where I wore blue and it was. I'd never lived it down like people were so focused that I wore blue for this gear was blue and I. I was offended and the reason why was offended is because it was a six man tag match and we went out and killed ourselves like we beat the hell out of each other and we had a hell of a match and we also was one of those things where it was realtor guys. You've been around for a while trying to really step up. Yes several of these kids like. Just give them a rub and bring these kids even though they were already over but bring them to a different level a make bigger stars and what people took away from. That match was that I was wearing blue. That's all that's all focused on amazing and then they were just so obsessed with it I was. There were so focused on me wearing blue that that was a big deal and they started a w Teesta I thought it was just so student led to go mark a way to go with asked me that. I should have done recen- China's like I'm sure that has something to do with the drafts or something. I literally so if you could turn back the time and talk to your younger self but would you tell them. Oh Min I Would just not weird 'cause I Somebody asked me that before my always fears like if I go back in until my younger shelf. You know this is going to happen. That's going to happen then when I stopped working as hard wood. I've looked at life differently and I would never have wanted. I don't want to change things like that in my life. Out of the way I grew up on Accomplish What I have coming from nothing so I think what I would have just citizens. You're going to be okay dude. You're not you're not gonNA die days like that here. Even when I was bouncing there was nights when I thought I was GONNA walk out the door then tonight and get shot. I didn't think I was making making it home guys in in the nineties in DC. Getting murdered hourly. It was crazy like it was crazy. How many scares scared? Yeah Hell Yeah I was. I was worried I mean I was literally Li like we. Were all worried. We're going to threaten nightly And it was such a violent place at the time it was like a war zone. Crack wars now. I was used that term of people. You know sounds ridiculous crack wars but it was. The craft workman what people getting killed for tennis shoes. And so that's what it was like. It was like walking out because I wasn't armed not walking out. I can't defend myself. There's people out here like guns that are shooting. You're stupid shit and I was on the nightly basis bouncing. It threat again. Paid w-we to do that right. I was doing okay you know when I first started bouncing I wasn't making much at all but towards the end of my bounce ground stone. Okay I was walking home with cash pocket every night. You know 'cause you're working with the on bigger places with the you know good clientele and you're getting tipped out So it was okay. I don't have that kind of cleaned times when I was just I. You know I blew my money. I didn't Oughta spend it in order to do with it. Show on good weak side. You know come home in the pocket full of money. Bad Weeks I was gone. I was on the end of the week in. Jesus that's it just I just like to you know. Tell my younger south. You're you'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA make it obvious to make it off block the actually that'd be pretty reassuring back down you know. I mean I think everybody wishes I wish somebody would have told me in high school. Just the YOU'RE GONNA get hair and your balls don't work. There'll be a hair on your balls. Your girls will start to like you. You're going to grow. You can do all these things but just you know. Maybe don't let this one go and maybe maybe not worry so much about that stuff and maybe deal with all your dysfunction now or something like that all right Lisa. Lisa's real quick. What industry is more cutthroat professional wrestling? Hollywood but far my floor contained it so right there in front of your face. There's so much you know Hollywood It's weird it is. It's it's a political DISA- took a political environment. It's a relationship business but there's always. There's so many more avenues with wrestling. There's really there's one avenue you know up until recently you know now there's another company that seems to be a Lotta guys seem to be gravitating towards but at that time. When I was there there was only there. Only one place to be or you weren't making a living and it was just like it was a hundred guys right there in the locker room with you. Ready to cut your throat built around their waste. And that's how it was so right there in front of your face Jennifer. And what was your favorite scene the plane of on Avengers endgame in came I was hardly in game. I was in it for those very briefly. I was only a couple of scenes. It was like an action scene. And I think it's seamless for shows. Probably the scene. What store you know not really an action. Guide really enjoy doing action but Today or infinity war was the invisibility thing was just so just so ridiculous. Emily asks have you ever gotten excited to meet and other actor if yes who got cut? Russell I did. I was excited to meet Kurt but I was like Oh man. That's that's a big question because there's been spin quite a few. I mean there's even people that I worked with it I was excited to meet Yeah I'm sorry. I wish I had a good name. Even directors such a song like say again man like stolen was i. I took a job. I took this job. I wasn't crazy about the job but I took it because I wanted to work. Stallone was I sat on the I sat. Are I team together? I got in and sat with Solan. I look man. I'm not going to be a fan boy today but tomorrow.

What are some of the things you stay disciplined? You'd have to go on but just the what's the big thing was followed. Certain rules with my Diet Goofy don't eat. Red Meat or insular is some of the rules on my diet which actually helps a lot as far as maintaining my weight because I can put on. What really easy like I can be musclebound. Real easy Other than that. I just I don't I work out because I have issues. I work out so much to keep myself sane. This is all like a side effect of my mental issues. I look this way for a reason and I work out because if I don't work out I'm I'm not a good mood. I'm stressed Audibly violent I'm not the same. You know centered person so I need to. It's therapy for me like working out. There is therapeutic for me so I I do those. I workout no matter what it is something how long how long everyday it depends on our our.

You could fast forward but I think it's really great The title is trusting if you read the front page story of The San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday December fourteenth two thousand five you would have read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spiderweb of crab traps in lines. She was weighed down by hundreds of pounds of traps. It caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body her tail her torso align tugging in her mouth. A fisherman spotted her just east of the fairlawn islands outside of the Golden Gate radio than an environmental group for help with a few hours. The rescue team arrived in determine that she was so bad off the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her which was a very dangerous proposition one slap at the tail would kill a rescuer. They worked for hours with curven is eventually freed her when she was free. The diver say she swam. It would seem like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver. One at a time and nudge them push them gently around. She thank them some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The Guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her I was following him the whole time and he will never be the same may you and all those you love be so blessed and fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

#206 - Mebs take on Investment Plans, Building and Maintaining Wealth, How Meb Invests, and Investing in the time of Corona

"Welcome to my favorite show where the focus is on helping you grow and preserve your wealth. Join us as we discussed the craft of investing and uncovered new and profitable ideas. All to help you grow wealthier and wiser better. Investing starts here met favors. The CO founder and chief investment at Cambridge Investment Management did IT industry regulations. He will not discuss any of Kim response on this podcast. All opinions expressed by PODCASTS. Participants are solely their own opinions and do not reflect the opinion of Kimberly investment management or its affiliates for more information visit. Kim reinvestments dot com. Hello podcast listeners. Wow Imagine you're listening. This at home quaranteed hopefully safe and sound. It's been a pretty extraordinary couple of days weeks month year in twenty twenty. We wanted to take the time to do a few methods. We've published a handful articles on the blog and our email lists to try to help investors through this time to think long term and really we're gonNA outlined our thoughts in this four part series. So let's jump right in and get started time Hannah. This is an email list. We sent out to shareholders. But Oga started. I remember preseason training for sports back in the day I went to High School in North Carolina. Remember being on the baseball field natural running win sprint. After winds front most of us will be standing there gasping with our hands on her knees barely able to catch a breath sweating in the humid summer of North Carolina. Coach would say this is why we run after practice. We train hard so that when we get to the regular season it's easy. We'll plan ahead of time to be in better shape than the other team and when the game is on the line we'll be prepared and they walked in quote right now. Global markets are experienced large moves up and down in many investors are freaking out. Us stocks have declined multiple times on the open enough to trigger circuit breakers and pause trading also to the upside investors all over social media panicking largely. Because they don't have a plan. But you do. You've put in the work over the past decade. You read our blog posts in books. You listen to podcasts. And eventually you built a plan and take note. They're not all the same plan but at least you have one so when it hits the fan like it is now you're prepared. My firm has over forty five thousand investors in very few of email to call today in a panic or the last week and that makes me really happy hour. Those the do fuel rudderless in a sense of panic. Take a breath step back. I'm here to help in the coming. Podcast we have three pieces that I've pinned recently on the blog which you can find the show notes that outlined a long-term view on how I think about investing part one upcoming is called get rich portfolio. It's an attempt to address our collective quest and make more money but on a holistic level. I'm talking wealth generation preservation and finally a rubber meets the road example strategic implementation. After all if your goals flan therapists and inconspicuous million our next door. Refreshing big spinner like said line the Kitty box with hundreds. You need to amass some wealth. I so that's where we have to start. Do you have a plan to generate? Well that's number one and most people don't but even if you do are you consistently following it with discipline or you allowing shifting market conditions like today to change your personal finances and allowed to push around now next. Let's make an say you're at one of the lucky investors who made it to the promised land. You've won the game you've saved invested in major. Not Now you're looking to preserve your wealth rather than grow what strategy is best for you likely not. We think will tackle this topic in part to the series called the stay rich portfolio lastly we conclude it with a final segment on how. I put both parts of these portfolios. Get rich stay. Rich into one cohesive portfolio with my own assets and investments called how I invest my money. Lastly attack one on the very end which is relevant to today which is called investing in the time of Corona where we talk about this three part series and how were implementing it today. Any deviations any opportunities to make some changes. On the periphery your portfolio and plan as other people react emotionally get rich portfolio. If we allow ourselves to let go of appearances. We're all here for one. Simple reason more money now. More money of course is always relative. A hundred thousand dollars in net worth places you in the global top ten percent but for many that would not last a hot minute one million dollars vaults you into the top one percent globally but for some only trae com would suffice. Research has shown that regardless of how much money people have. Everyone says they always want more. I think that rough numbers around twice as much as everyone already has now what you plan to do with that. Money can be noble in altruistic or egg noble and self serving and. That's not the point and I'm not judging either way I'm merely noting the reality that what unites us here on this podcast on the blog as desire for more wealth. The challenges accomplishing this goal. We often lose sight of the forest for the trees or the flipside is true. We stay so big picture that we don't implement our strategies. Well I realized those are contradictory problems. Yet that's the point investing challenging before you judge that Common Banal Really. Think about why it's true. The market environment self is always changing the return potential of any individual investment as always changing our individual resources in financial pictures are always changing and our specific goals are always changing not always the target moving so as the platform you're standing on and then there's the potentially other targets you may want to shoot at investing a lot life golf. You don't really win you. Just try to improve your entire game bit by bit while avoiding a massive blow up today. We're beginning at three part series. That's humbly offered to try to help you improve your overall game. It's an attempt to address our collective quest to make more money but now on a holistic level I'm talking wealth generation preservation and. Finally a rubber meets the road example of strategic implementation. And our first podcast. Today we dig into wealth generation. After all whether your goals would be a Flan therapist and inconspicuous millionaire next door or flashy big spender who lines the kitty box litter with hundreds of dollars. You need to amass some wealth. I so that's where we have to start enough introduction. Let's jump in getting rich through luck the quote. I'd rather be lucky than good. Allegedly comes from Yankees player. Lefty Gomez course if that's mis attributed there's also I don't want a good general I wanNA lucky one from Napoleon with this in mind let's start with. What many want wealthy easy? When what they really mean is lucky way. Obviously this part will be short since lock is largely out of our hands at the top of our luckless or inheriting it winning the lottery or perhaps marrying into wealth. Not Much we can say about any of these. Although if you google strategies for marrying rich you'll be met with a shocking number of humorous entries. Can Fisher has a funny chapter one of his books. That walks people through a very deliberate and intentional approach to marrying rich which is pretty funny. But let's get more serious. The good news is most millionaire's actually don't inherit their wealth. They created themselves. Fidelity investments found that eighty. Eight percent of millionare's self made the Great Tom. Stanley's book the millionaire next door. The surprising secrets of America's wealthy found a similar result at eight percent. So how all these billionaires get there. Many of them did it through. What's next up on our get rich strategies list becoming a higher earning EXAC think a doctor a lawyer or upper level management in a company so getting rich as a professional while historically this traditional path to wealth. There's a couple issues with it. I rather than a path opulence today. This is more of a means of reaching financial security and other words while the salaries from these jobs are far greater than average salaries. They're likely to insulate you from the quote. Can I pay this bill financial pressures that plague so many Americans? Today's typical doctor isn't likely to generate obscene wealth from salary loan caitong from the University of Texas Medical Branch recently explained it this way. Remember the doctors today could start off with a negative net worth of sometimes even five hundred grand if they took private college and medical school note. Half a medical schools are private. Doctors didn't want any ninety nine percentile for student. Loan amounts the average doctor makes about fifty bucks an hour when accounting for opportunity cost loans taxes insurance etc. Don't be fooled by the absolute amount in terms of salary. The average doctors underpaid and overworked. You spend seven to twelve years initially like. You're working fulltime jobs. The student studying eighty hours a week. Mini residencies are essentially less than minimum wage. Job With much more than eighty hours a week even though eighty hours supposedly the maximum. You clock in by the time your doctor. The average doctor spend even more time than clocked in with documentation compliance and insurance not to mentioning continuing education. Of course there are options to better lifestyle. Type of specialties. Such as dermatology and you might become a millionaire relatively quicker but those reserved for the top of the top students because it is highly competitive end of quote now before you feel too bad for these hiring pros consider the two hundred and fifty thousand dollars annual salary. Balsam into the top zero point four richest people in the world by income a great website. I think it's called get rich list. You Google something like that. I'll tell you where you fall based on income as well as net worth by the way all of these references are hyperlinked on the blog at map favor. There's a second problem with going. The route of the doctor lawyer not only does this. Path typically lead to Mir financial comfort rather than obscene wealth. So very long path tongue also hits on this point quote if we're purely discussing a millionaire in terms of net worth including real estate and retirement probably take twelve twenty years of doctor live very frugally and had the average amount of student loans and expenses. And so if you go the exact or Dr Route. You're likely in financial comfort eventually depending on your spending habits obviously but for most individuals vons group. There will be a ballpark cap. To the riches you can generate also be prepared for your journey to take a while however you can combine any amount of savings with enough time regardless of income level. You can still amass a fortune the key words here savings and time and that's a good reminder of the difference here between being a millionaire in spending a million bucks most self made millionaires. Aren't living alive conspicuous wealth. According to the millionaire next door the average millionaire lives on less than seven percent of his or her wealth whereas inexpensive suits and drives cars. That are not this year's current model but returning to our point savings and time are important for building wealth but when you add in a specific third variable to that equation. That's when the true wealth building begins to happen and carry its own weight lifting for you and come a bit faster and that dovetails us into the next generation strategy. Getting rich slowly with prudent investing. Okay so let's turn a topic that unites us all of us on the podcast. And that's investing. It's really a simple formula. That supplies the missing variable weeds reference. Which is savings plus investment? Plus time equals wealth by adding the essential element. Investing your hard earned and save cash harnesses the power of compounding the long term to seal the real world power of this look no further than Ronald read about senator from Vermont. Who died in two thousand fourteen with an eight million dollar fortune? Obviously janitor? Salary isn't going to go too far so this fortune came about through saving as much paycheck as possible then routinely investing the savings and equality stocks the CNBC article which detailed read story quoted from one of his friends. Saying I'm sure if he earned fifty bucks a week he probably invested forty of it. It turns out read owned at least ninety five stocks at the time of his death many of which he'd held for decades. That list was full of blue chips. You recognize including procter and gamble. Jp Morgan General. Electric Dow chemical and Johnson and Johnson. Us stock market is historically returned about ten percent a year. Now if you compound your money at ten percent in twenty five years you ten extra money that means one hundred grand turns into a million bucks. Now if you're smart enough to start saving investing early then in fifty years at ten percent means you a hundred extra money and I want you to seriously pause. Let that sink in and think about that for a minute. That means a hundred grand in fifty years turns into ten million dollars. Hundred grand turns into ten million dollars as mathematical magic trick requires zero brains zero effort. Anyone can do it. And it's a reminder to all you parents and our grandparents thing about the huge potential favor you're doing for your little ones by putting even a modest amount into an account wherein reinvest dividends over time and compounds many. Listen this will respond. Well sure that's easy. If you have one hundred grand start with. I don't have anything saved. Well do you think you could fall Ronald and save forty bucks a week? Most of us could find a way. Well let's say you graduated college. Save Forty Bucks a week for ten years. I mean that's literally like one dinner a week steady wheat rice and beans some Rahman save forty bucks a week for ten years invested that money in stocks. By the time you're retired you'd be a millionaire. No you don't even have to contribute anything after the initial ten years so literally. It's forty bucks a week for ten years. You only saved about twenty can total the way in your twenties. I don't even remember the money I spend my twenty s eventually that modest amount turned into a million bucks. That's the power of time in compounding. Now had you been really thrifty and continued to save and invest in her thirties and forties and fifties. That final amount could be much much much bigger now. If you think this is easy it is at the same time. It's not so let me try to prepare you for the biggest challenge ahead the monotony. You have no hot stock to talk about. Usually no explosive market gains happening in just a short period instead is just boring. Low-cost funds in ETF's slowly grinding higher investing equivalent of watching paint dry. The other challenge requires for most people some degree of penny-pinching in order to fund your growing nest egg. Obviously the amount of that pinches a function of your active income and lifestyle but this ties in a quote from Morgan House Uil who touches on the same point. We made earlier when most people say. They want to be a millionaire. What they really mean is I want to spend a million dollars which is literally the opposite of being a millionaire end of quote so for all being honest most harbor the fantasy of spending lots of money but in order to do that. We need to have that money now. Not Wait decades for scrimping and saving after all. The fantasy isn't paper wealth while living popper lifestyle. The truth is most of us. Aren't all that excited about slow investing riches when we imagined wealth through investing? We're likely fantasizing about putting money into bitcoin. Twenty seventeen when thousand bucks and then selling it a year later is hit twenty thousand a twenty bags and just one year. Most of us are not willing to forego next week's vacation so that our future self enjoy greater financial security to be fair that two thousand dollars. You're about spin on spring break in Cancun or visa may be better spent under vacation rather than as an investment after all could bring you lifetime of good memories maybe even a partner in children but just to be intellectually honest about the opportunity cost. You could sock away that money gonNA cheaper road trip. Maybe go camping and turn that cash into a nice starter. Nest Egg for retirement. The problem is with the seven-year-old you value that two hundred thousand dollars more than the twenty year old. You values two thousand ours. Can you even empathize with the old you at Twenty? And perhaps it's maybe easier on twenty twenty now that we have these Russian iphone photo aging APPs. I did one looked yearly to accurate again. This is the simple path. It takes zero brains. It takes only the effort of living within your means and investing in time investing global portfolio of stocks and bonds can be implemented. Today for almost zero cost you could then put that portfolio on autopilot allowing it to compound away without any fiddling or interventions from you and we've demonstrated in many old articles that almost everyone would be better off spending zero time on their portfolio. Orrin portfolio decisions. But then there are those listening this that are not here for the slow dependable path. So what's realistic in terms of getting wealthy with investing faster than read next hour? Outline a few ways you can make big gains happen next up getting rich fast with concentration and leverage to get rich quickly you need to compound your wealth with highly outside returns if you double your market returns to twenty percent per year you ten extra money and thirteen years instead of twenty five. You hit one hundred x annoying twenty-six versus fifty for the slow zero effort route. Keep that in mind. It's still thirteen years in twenty-six years if you want to get rich and just one or two you can do the math on just how high returns have to be either way how you generate outside returns if your principal economic engine is going to be public stocks. I used to be the world's best market timer. Let's say you had a crystal ball on a time machine you travel back to nineteen twenty with Martin Mc fly and dock inner time machine and the delorean. Your time machine takes you all the way back to the roaring twenties then each year. Your Crystal Ball gives you predicted accurately which asset class between stocks and bonds would perform best over the coming year so John Every year crystal ball says you got to be in stocks or bonds with perfect one year foresight. What do you think your returns would be the world's greatest market timer? The answer is only seventeen percent. The funny part to me by the way is the opposite. If you're the world's worst market timer and I feel like I know so many of these each year you pick the world's worst asset class between stocks and bonds. Your return is minus zero point nine percent so it's almost impossible to lose money investing but people still find a way so not even perfect market. Timing will get you to twenty percent. What about stock picking to even attempt to get big returns? You need to move away from market capitalization? Weighted indices in the more concentrated exposures think Warren Buffett's portfolio containing only a handful of stocks. The first problem is it's hard to devise strategies in public markets that generate twenty percent returns per year historically and by the way that includes the benefit of hindsight bias. Here in two thousand twenty. The second problem is these. Portfolios ended up looking super weird concentrated in different from the broad indices as an example a basic highly concentrated small cap value and momentum. Stock allocation gets do about sixteen percent per year and by the way listeners. Many of you know research service called the idea. Farm that sends out curated research each week but also provides in excel back tester. Let's test a lot of these historical asset allocation strategies and so on the blog post favor we published the equity curve of this small cap value momentum strategy going all the way back nineteen twenty and it looks absolutely beautiful. We all want this equity curve. It just looks up into the right to the Moon Alice. I'm already thinking about sitting. Courtside the Lakers and sipping champagne and the Mediterranean. But still this is just sixteen percent and not twenty percent and guess what even if you could concoct equity curve so we're ignoring transaction costs and taxes and everything else at one point you lose eighty five percent of your money during the Great Depression and at other points sixty percent multiple times over the years. Ouch that's the painful path that the public market investor at some point on your quest for big returns you will likely experience a massive massive loss. Can you handle getting daily updates on how fast you're losing all your hard earned money? Probably not our buds at Alpha architect. Talk about how quote even God. We'll get fired as an active manager. Google data go to the favor and see the the link. It's a great walk through example. If you had perfect foresight into which stocks would do best you end up with great returns but also you have these huge terrible drowns that almost no one can avoid or sit through. But is it possible to have the wherewithal to endure the pain at takes to outperform? Jor Buff has been through many rough patches over the years the famous Trent Far Commodity Trading Advisor bill done has been through big drawdowns over a dozen times on the path to big returns. Jeff Bezos has been through a ninety five percent price laws and Amazon on the way to building a trillion dollar company. But it is vital to be honest with yourself. Do you really have the resolve of obeys owes done or buffet? All investors eventually have large drawdowns. But it's even harder for most to sit through periods of underperformance versus a broad stock market index. Like the S. and P. Five hundred even worse is under performing your neighbor. That's likely the hardest psychological challenge to overcome remember to outperform the indices. You need to be different. Which is fine when you're winning but impossible. When you're losing quote Charlie Munger a great expression where says? I've heard Warren say half a dozen times. It's not greed. The drives the world but envy. I asked my twitter followers. The same question a similar question. What stretch of UNDERPERFORMANCE BY PORTFOLIO MANAGER? Would you be willing to tolerate before selling the Allocation over half said less than three years ninety three percent said less than ten years. How would you react if I told you that Buffett's stock picks have underperformed abroad? Snp for the past seventeen years. What if I said he underperformed eleven out of those seventeen years yet? How'd you invested? In Berkshire the turn of the century. His picks would have outperformed the SMP by three percentage points per year. We're looking at top. Ten stockholdings equal weighted rebounds quarterly Berkshire as very similar returns. By the way in fact his performance would have beaten over ninety four percent of all mutual funds during that period. And the best part is he didn't charge you any management fees. This basic strategy has crushed the market but has also gone through underperforming periods where ninety three percent of investors would have capitulated and sold Warren Buffet as portfolio manager. But that's what it takes to outperform overtime long periods of being weird different an wrong. But let's say you really are on the nerves of Steel Camp Buffet. Embezzles can handle big drawdowns and long period of underperformance. What then we'll if I had to put on my portfolio manager hat with the goal of generating twenty percent returns on using only public markets. I would expand from just stocks and apply those theories that underperformed the Trinity Portfolio but with leverage that means I would include highly concentrated tilts towards global value stocks and global momentum stocks. I would also pair it with an aggressive global falling strategy than levers that puppy up the entire allocation to around one and a half maybe two times and I think that potentially gets you to around twenty percent however as you'll see in the third part of the series. I don't do that. Why because I don't think I could handle it. Monger famously said there are only three ways to go broke liquor ladies and leverage and it's twenty twenty so maybe maybe more than twenty twenty metoo version of that would be liquor love and leverage but the same rules apply. I'm looking at one so such simulation that just went through a painful thirty percent loss during the financial crisis another sixty six percent drowned during the Great Depression and again that's with an idealized portfolio that benefits from hindsight bias. Reality would likely be much worse in line with the old investment saying your largest draw down as always in the future most couldn't sit through that pain or if they could. It certainly wouldn't be enjoyable. And isn't that point at the end of the day to find an allocation that lets you enjoy the benefits of compounding returns but doesn't cost you your sleep at night and I really really really love to sleep anything else. We could try get rich faster. Entrepreneurialism embodies the truly American ideal of the self made person. It's also one of the fastest ways to get incredibly wealthy or bankrupt so next on our list is being the boss. There's no need to describe the basics of starting a business is also no real need to explain the financial benefit every news aware. That big dollars come through ownership of a thriving business and enjoy significant growth. Whether that's hyper growth over short period or slow and steady growth over several decades but the bottom line is the life of founders brutally hard and even then the business may fail due to forces outside your control. Success is never guaranteed but for those founders who do find big success. The payoff can be extraordinary. All you must do is look at the Forbes billionaire list to see the top echelon of wealth inextricably tied to business ownership bazo skates. Buffet Ellison Zuckerberg page by the way WHO's not analyst. Athletes rockstars actors and pretty much. Everyone besides business owners the celebrities singers or athletes that do make lists often. Don't do it for their singing. Pass catching abilities. But rather their business acumen take Jay Z. He was one of the most successful rappers of all time but it wasn't before he expanded his empire to include music streaming service liquor art real estate and steaks and other companies that his net worth top. Two billion so rather than patronize. You find readers with a standard. Platitudes are rather just make one point about starting a business. The common lament of would be entrepreneurs is the reward is just too high for me. I'M GONNA suggest this may not be accurate. But let's break this down on a numerator denominator basis and compare it to that being an employee to be intellectually honest about it. The knee-jerk reaction is to focus on the risk associated with starting your own business. Yes the failure rate is high. There are no guarantees of course but the massive potential financial reward from starting a business. The denominator does level out the high risk level the numerator as a result the overall proposition is starting. A business isn't as downright crazy. As many timid entrepreneurs may believe and what about the risk reward ratio of working for someone else? After all to be fair you must evaluate how this looks if you decide to remain an employee in this case. The knee jerk reaction is. I remain employees because I have low risk. Ergo it's the better option but really to problems with this one look at the denominator award barring the abnormal situation in which you continue to make huge paycheck leaps due to repeated consistent promotions. Then you're probably locked into the standard. Three percent cost of living salary increase every year translation. Your denominator reward is massively capped so while the wrist numerator being an employee might be lower than that to be an entrepreneur the reward so drastically lower that the question of the ratio itself is basically the same or worse than that of being an entrepreneur. Second Point is being an employee really safer by now. I'm sure you've read articles. Basically strike the fear of God into you as they point toward a coming reality. The robots are coming for our jobs and don't make the mistake of thinking these robots will be limited. Your standard production line machinery roles. They'll be replacing pharmacists lawyers and paralegals drivers astronauts store clerk sportwriters and other reporters soldiers even your thirteen year old daughter when she tries to Babysit. Oh and for our business how `bout computerized trading and Robo investing only matter of time before you're reading automated blog posts from the cyber quant. Mab Two thousand. The point is just because you have a job today. Does you'll have the future-proof job tomorrow. Even if you're good at it so toss the belief that this is the safe better option. So do you want to get rich? Starting your own business is one of the best ways to do it before you say. It's too risky really. Consider the opportunity costs of what you're giving up by remaining employees as well as the risks are actually accepting by remaining that in that safe job. Now let's see your devoid of any business ideas or perhaps you're just too lazy to be a founder. It's damn hard this points us to our second faster way of acquiring big riches faster invest in other people who have taken the risk of starting businesses and other words being angel investor. You could certainly take public route. We talked about earlier. Let's talk about Angel private investing I. Will you take some of the capital? Earn by your sweat and toil and invested in other people with great business ideas if you're going to go the effort investing in early stage private companies. You're looking for ideas that had the potential to massively scale and we've covered angel investing quite a bit on the podcasts and online on this show on link there's an appendix that lists over a dozen episodes focused on the topic of Angel Investing. A great intro book would be angel by Jason Cal Canes. We've also had him on the show. But to get rich you need out liars on the return distribution scale doubling. Your money isn't gonNA CUT IT. You're looking for a true hundred. Bagger or ten grand investment turns into a million bucks while power laws dominate both private and public markets lower starting point of angel investments with say a ten million dollar market cap allows for potential moonshot to occur perhaps more easily than public trading at ten billion dollar market. Cap and online. We have good papers on return distributions and public markets by Longboard Besson Binder JP P. Morgan Vanguard etc and by the way. This is one of the reasons that investing in broad stock market indices work. You're guaranteed on the small minority of big winners which generate all return stats something like five percent of stocks generate all the return the McDonalds the amazons the googles apples We've also had Chris Mayer on the PODCAST. She was a wonderful. He talks about a hundred baggers also in his book of the same name. But this size issue isn't the only reason why private investments can get you rich faster and perhaps easier than our percent from the public markets route private investments. Help you sidestep one of the biggest threats to your money. You leading a public. Investment compound to reach one hundred bagger status is all but impossible. Why because every single day you can pull up your brokerage account her phone or computer and check the price which puts you risk of selling to lock in gains or selling to avoid perspective losses. Do you think you'll still let one hundred minute ride after it makes you five times your initial investment. If you say yes then okay. Well what happens when it goes down by half? How many people would've sat through that ninety five percent drown Amazon on the way to join our status? Not many while this concept of buying and holding stock for the long run is a nice theory like the old coffee can portfolio. It can be hard or near impossible to implement practice. Given our behavioral blind spots for the private investment is different. Your money's locked in. It's interesting without even having to think about it. Many people do this already with their largest financial asset. Their house others do it with annuities that lock you in but most choices here way way too expensive. I think the average is around two point two five percent per year. You can find on podcast. My friend Paul Mirman talking about his unique solution to this where he gifts has grandchildren annuities and wrap them in a trust. Pretty cool idea. But most people don't think twice about illiquidity of their home yet see the liquidity of private companies as a problem given our discussion so far it actually may be a positive feature not a bug cliff. Agnes recently talked about this topic in his piece. The illiquidity discount which I agree with. There are other benefits of investing in private startups. That many people don't talk about. We've covered a lot on the podcast. Buried in the recent tax legislation was the qualified small business tax treatment B. S. for short investments that qualify allow investors exclude a hundred percent of capital gains with ten million or ten times the adjusted basis of the stock. Whichever is greater. That's a monster tack. Investors can also plays private angel vestments into retirement accounts to avoid capital gain hits on massive winds. We've talked about paypal. Mafia lomb Max Leveson who utilized his roth. Ira Invest in. Yelp Peter. Thiel do the same with facebook to Romney even did it with his IRA which got to be worth over one hundred million dollars. We talk about the ability to invest in these private companies with a podcast with Alto. Ira founder which is a good opportunity opportunity zones another tax opportunity for long-term private market investments. You can find more in depth and a few of our podcasts. With Steve Glickman and Alexander Rubalcaba there are many platforms that allow for Angel Investing. But by four to me the best deal flows. Concentrate on angels. I by the way I may start sharing some of the deals and you can find the link on show notes other platforms. That are perfectly fine include republic. We've seen invest by verge and others when you think about it starting your own company or investing in other founders are really extensions of what made Ronald read rich different massacres yet. Whether by your own sweat or investing your labor in the sweat of others both are great ways to get rich. If you can behave along the way what's the takeaway though it's hardly illuminating? There's no single path. Everyone should take to generate wealth after all. What is safe anyway? Can Your money's safely compound in the asset class? No we've written many times about how all asset classes have suffered huge double digit losses on a real basis over the past century even diversified portfolios. Go through long losing periods plus to outperform the indices and hit the big returns. You need to be weird. Concentrated Different Mini simply. Can't handle feeling for years on end when they're losing out to a basic index and what about the safety of starting a business. Well the stats suggest. You'll fail so your seat capital in your blood. Sweat and tears are at risk. The bottom line is huge riches. Don't come both fast and safely so as much of a letdown as it is. We'd all be far better off holding Ronald Redesign investment hero. Not because he invested in stocks or blue chips or anything like that the real reason runners are heroes because he had a game plan he stuck to it. Do you have a plan to generate wealth? That's number one and most people we talked to. Don't but even if you do. Are you consistently falling discipline or you allowing shifting market conditions? Interchanging personal finances. Push you around. But let's make leap in say you're one of the lucky investors who made it to the. Promised Land You've won the game you've saved invested in major not and now you're looking to preserve your wealth rather than grow it. What strategy now is best for? You likely it's not the one you think. We'll tackle this topic. And the next part in the series with the stay rich portfolio the second installment of our new series on generating wealth preserving it and then looking at a real world illustration of strategically implementing these concepts we discuss generating riches through a high paying career investing in public and private markets. And starting your own business the takeaway was. There's no fast safe path. The riches rather its which path is right for you. Given your temperament financial needs goals and abilities and the second part of this series. We'll look at what happens after you've made it in other words you've master wealth and now your principal goals preserving it. That's not as easy as it sounds. Also just because you generate well doesn't mean you have the skill to keep it. After all strategies preserving wealth can be quite different than strategies for generating wealth enough introduction. Let's jump right in from thirty. Five billion to broke in two years and twenty twelve by Teesta had an estimated net worth more than thirty five billion dollars. The self made Brazilian billionaire created an empire that stretched from mining to oil. The public works mini considered him the pride of Brazil barely two years later he had lost all thirty five billion dollars in owed another billion to creditors. How does this happen? How does it thirty five? Billion dollar portfolio evaporate practically overnight. You could point to several poor decisions but perhaps the biggest of all was concentration. Risk in Buffet's favorite destroyer Leverage Battista. 's wealth was overwhelmingly tied to the global commodities boom without investment concentration was a huge tailwind in helping. Batista become rich. It eventually proved his downfall. As well this point to a critical takeaway every investor needs to be aware of the portfolio. That helps you get rich. Isn't necessarily the portfolio? That's going to help you remain rich research backs up with the old saying shirtsleeves. The search leaves three generations. The Asian equivalent is rice paddy to Rice Patty and three generations. Seventy percent of wealthy families lose their wealth by the second generation and a whopping ninety percent by the third granted. Some of that is due to high spinning addiction. Bad luck leverage or just poor decisions but a lot of it is simply. How PEOPLE INVEST THEIR MONEY? Can you invest in a certain way to bomb proof your portfolio to minimize losses? Let's do it by Teesta. Should have done spend a few minutes focusing on the stay rich part of the equation if you're an investor is already amassed great wealth and won the game. What's the right market? Approach that will help you keep and potentially even grow your wealth. I up how safe are risk. Free Treasury bills. When trying to engineer a stay rich portfolio it makes sense to start with what the investing community refers to the risk free rate. Most often we find. This is the rate of current treasury bills. Many investors believe t-bills to be the safest most conservative investment around. In fact. If you look at t-bills back in nineteen twenty six. They returned three point four percent per year with no drawdown or losses. Pretty SAFE RIGHT. Not Exactly. These are nominal returns and nominal returns or an illusion because they don't take into account inflation. All that matters to any investor is returned after inflation. Or what we call real returns or returns you can eat. And if you measure the return of t-bills after inflation you see a different story. Unfortunately this is story. Most investors haven't seen I recently asked my twitter followers. The question below. Let's say you're conservative investor and put all of your money into safer. Us government short-term treasury bills how big of a drawdown from peak to trough loss after inflation. Did you experience in the Twentieth Century? The options were zero to fifteen fifteen to thirty thirty to forty five and worse than a forty five percent loss. The vast majority of people said less than forty five percent and about half said less than thirty percent about sixteen percents less than fifteen the actual real match. Drawdown was a whopping half. You are half your money and safety bills two thirds of people. The answer wrong and these are very intelligent people with far greater investing experience. Most you kind of have to be to follow me on twitter. A lot of quant nursery yet. These seriously underestimated the losses in short term bonds so the risk free rate isn't risk free at all and by the way I'm ignoring other global sovereign bond markets including some that produced a hundred percent loss. The original version of this article ignored. What a Lotta people do with their money. They actually leave it in the bank today. That's zero percent interest the modern day version of stuffing under the mattress. A full third of investors responded to pull that they earned zero percent interest on their bank. Deposits or quote don't know what interest they are earned if you just put your money at zero percent and under matches eventually lose all of your assets minus ninety seven percent and inflation clip of about three percent per year out. Okay so what about parking your dough and other asset classes might real returns. Be Safer elsewhere. Unfortunately not the Lahser even worse when we expand our analysis to other asset classes. So if you go back to nineteen twenty six here the Max. Real draw downs for various assets. Us stocks minus seventy nine percent foreign stocks ex US minus seventy eight percent ten year. Us government bonds minus sixty one percent foreign bonds minus seventy eight percent gold minus eighty five percent couch. The Naysayer might hear this and say look these are Max drawdowns. That likely played out over several years. A smart investor would have gotten out after say one year bad returns. Well with that mind will post this online. I'll try to read it here. Table highlights the worst twelve month period of real returns for each of the asset classes after this annualized inflation of around three percent. And as you'll see nothing was truly safe so if you go back to nineteen twenty six real returns cash under the mattress minus three cash. T-bills plus point five. So you basically kept up with inflation but but made a little money. Us STOCKS AFTER INFLATION. Seven percent awesome foreign stocks about five long-term US bonds around to foreign bonds also around two gold also around two. And then we've just read those Max returns and if you look at the worst year so the worst twelve months cash under the mattress and t-bills both out about mine a seventeen percent. So imagine that you're in your safe money and use almost twenty percent a year now. The volatile assets like stocks lost two thirds in year foreign stocks fifty seven percent foreign bonds forty two percent and gold. Same forty-two percent again. You can look at this online easier reading. Listen to but it could be reasonable argued that people would prefer a slow erosion of wealth to a sharp loss. And in this case t-bills do indeed look safest on these metrics remember. In one year they only lost seventeen versus docks was lost to third. They had lower volatility more positive months and the lowest were twelve month period however the slower erosion of bonds might appear less painful at first glance but considered the analogy of the frog and the boiling water as the analogy goes. If you throw frog into a pot of boiling water. It'll feel the pain and jump right out. But if you put a frog and dupont of cool water then turn on the burner. The FROG will remain in the water until it boils. I don't know if that's true or not. But just stick with me. The slow of wealth with t-bills is a bit like a frog sitting in water that simmering towards a boil. So let's pause briefly recap at this point is clear. There's no single asset. It's guaranteed to preserve your wealth. The best we've done is a forty nine percent decline in the safest asset. You still lost. Have your money at some point. So what now is there? A way to combine assets and build a minimum loss portfolio asset allocation strategies have long been known to reduce risk for portfolio. So what's the worst drawdown we've seen with? The venerated institutional sixty forty portfolio in sixty percent stocks. Forty percent bonds. You still lose fifty four percents of money. What we expanded the global sixty forty then. You only lose forty six percent of your money still almost half okay. That's a little bit. Better chose the benefits of diversification. We still lost have your money. How about adding real assets gold so if we combine this all into what we call the global market portfolio and we discuss this in our book global allocation which is free to download online at MAB favor or camry investments. It's roughly half stocks half bonds and of that. It's roughly half and half foreign. Well you end up with around the same return as sixty forty with lower volatility and you give up some real return but we do lower our maximum drawdown so from fifty four percent in. Us stocks comes down to thirty nine percent so so better but it's a mixed bag about percent lower returns to so this all points the takeaway which I think is vastly understated by almost every investor on the planet nearly every allocation or single asset classes will likely decline by at least thirty percent on a real basis. And probably more in your lifetime and that's a hard pill for most swallow but at least you have this knowledge ahead of time which will hopefully help. You anticipate it better and whether the storm so what does this? All Mean Our T. Bills still the safest so you might have listened this and think okay. You've been a real ray of Sunshine Mab in showing me that every asset class portfolios still susceptible to huge drawdowns. So if it's all bad then I might as well start back at the beginning. T- bill seemed to offer the lowest drawdowns. So that's where all park my wealth. Let me propose an alternative suggestion? Our studies have shown that historically an investor can combine a diversified global market portfolio with some cash to produce ALCOM with similar loss levels. T. Bills but with better returns. This approach enables embassador to engineer. Strategy that offers comparable levels t-bills yet while generating an additional two plus percentage points to return per year or perhaps framing. The return is yield. Would make more sense. As comparison so at a minimum the global market portfolio. We call it g a part of the equation offer some protection from the catastrophic losses by Teesta incurred when concentrating all his wealth engine just went asset class. So let me read this again. You can go online and we'll help you better. If you look at the real returns member cash t-bills get you about half a percent. The global market portfolio gets you up to four and a half but with a drawdown. That's probably not survivable. So let's say we put two thirds and the global market portfolio stocks and bonds and a third and t-bills like cash. Well you end up. With a portfolio returns about three percent three point two percent versus point five for just t-bills it has a little bit higher. Draw down but the maximum drawdown is less so member for cash. T-bills half this takes you down to thirty seven percent more importantly the percentage of positive months for both is around sixty one percent and the worst twelve month period is about the same. So for t-bills seventeen percent for this portfolios nineteen percent so across all metrics of volatility and. Draw down it's pretty darn similar but you end up with over two percents points. Two and a half percentage points higher return and so we posted these charts. And it's hard to can't see it visually while listening this but online if you go to the blog post and you can see the chart of t-bills bursts is two-thirds investing in the global market and a third and t-bills and as you can see there's a little bit more volatility with a Combo of J. T. bills but it's well worth it for high returns over time and this is on monthly level if you take it out to yearly level and zoom out and you only use yearly values. The volatility looks even lower. You can hardly tell the difference between the volatility of G. A. and t-bills versus just t-bills Innuendo with vastly higher return. So of course. This is a philosophical departure for many my friend. Dan Egan at betterment has spoken on this topic. Recently in my perspective is evolved. Here over the years I used to think the safe option was t-bills but many conservative investors. Keep their save money in a savings account that earns t bill returns. Think about by the way most of you. Probably every money in Bank of America or one of these crappy banks that are zero percent. Well first of all you should be earning if you're even going to do it in that account a high yielding account that's protected betterment. Does it has others. That's probably well up above one. I don't know now after the Fed funds coming down but there was to not too long ago but she leaves be getting paid on that but even then is that really the safest place for it. History would suggest that investing across a broad portfolio with some cash has been a safer allocation than t-bills alone. And if you think about it makes sense if our biggest enemy over time is inflation the best possible thing you can do is invest in a huge spectrum of businesses locally. That grow your money over time and pair that with T. bills to now as to the threat of your wealth posed by that high-spending child and your derelict spouse. That's that's another problem. So we conclude this a move on. How Does Med put both these parts of these portfolios? Get Rich and stay. Rich into one cohesive portfolio with my own assets an own investments. This is an extension of a piece. I've been writing for years namely how I invest my own money. I began noticing an interest in this topic from years years ago. Usually as December rolled into January of a new year I suppose some investors found it useful to see how someone who's career in investments allocators money others perhaps found the process instructive for application of their own portfolio. Or perhaps they just like to watch from the stands so they can cheer or throw. Tomatoes virtually than twenty twenty on. What's important as you approach? That works for you from the late. Great John Bogel. That was low cost index investing. He had a great quote which he said to repeat. While such an index driven strategy may not be the best investment strategy ever devise the number of investment strategies that are worse is infinite in will my strategy be the best strategy device or the best strategy for everyone absolutely not but is the best strategy for me? I think so without a mine. Let's pull back the curtain. Of course there's nothing too dramatic about what's behind as I mentioned a moment ago. I've been publicly detailing what I do with my own money for years and I'm happy to continue doing so there's a lot of shame embarrassment when it comes to personal finances and we want to end up but a couple disclaimers before we launch in I. The reality is this information should matter to anyone outside my family. Let's be clear none of them. Listen to this however I recognize that many investors appreciate the thoughts behind the process either as a template for their own portfolio or just to stir up some questions that said please understand. I'm not offering this information as a recommendation for how should invest personally. My situation is not yours even if it were there. A million different market approaches. That worked just fine. The challenge of course is avoiding the ten million approaches. That are terrible channeling bogle second. Look the numbers aren't exact and forget about decimal points. Attempting to provide that degree of specificity would be pointless. Furthermore the most instructive part exercise is simply understanding. How big financial pieces fit together to create a holistic financial portrait? So specifics aren't really that helpful. Third this podcast tends to be a bit anticlimactic for some investors since. I'm aware that most people are looking to get a read on how to position. Their portfolios are thinking about their stocks specifically all provide you with a hundred percent transparency. About how my investments are positioned. But you'll see that doesn't materially change one year the next as most of the funds do all the work and the heavy lifting adjustments for me so unfortunately. I don't have any hot stock tips for you in the podcast over. You WanNA gossip about investments and ideas over a meal or beer. I'm always game. I'll tell you my opinions all night. But they don't make it into my portfolio. Finally you'll see that I'm somewhere in between when it comes to wealth generation and wealth preservation strategies. I've young family with plenty of financial needs so I'm still trying to generate wealth on the other hand. I'm trying to be thoughtful about my family's financial future. So that mean certain preservation strategies to in as I mentioned before and prior podcast. I really really like to sleep soundly again. This is what works for me at the moment which will change over time. And I don't hold it out as a suggestion for any specific follow it's merely an illustration let's dive in the biggest pieces of my net worth. The vast majority of my net worth is concentrated in entrepreneurial ventures I founded namely in my asset management company Cambria. My research company the idea farm while the exact percentage is open to debate. It's likely between half and ninety nine percent while not quite as extreme as the on Moss. Quote IF TESLA AND SPACEX bankrupt. So we'll I as it should be in the ownership stake in companies with the largest determined to my net worth. This is likely true for many business owners around the world. Echoing our prior essays and podcasts. On getting rich and staying rich I think it is useful to bucket my holdings into these two categories being founder and owner of Cambria and the idea farm fall into the get rich bucket that having been said if you exclude Cambria and the idea farm my largest holdings or about a third each in farmland investments in over one hundred fifty private companies and my public investment portfolio all you historians and longtime followers recognize this allocation as approximating the two thousand year old Talmud portfolio that spread equally costs real assets businesses and save reserves. I think the quote is something along the lines of let every man vote a third of his wealth each to land his business and keep a third in reserve in by the way you can download a free copy of global asset allocation book. We wrote with chapters on various asset allocations including the Talmud per portfolio and stay tune on the lookout for a second edition. Hopefully this year but all that can be found at camera investments or MAB FAVOR DOT com. We post a pie chart on the show notes. Here if you WANNA take a look at this exactly. But I'll read it out here in order. You know farmland as a pretty stable income producing asset and his about as non correlated as you can get the rest of the portfolio so I put that in the stay rich bucket. Plus it offers a very real sentimental and emotional value for me due to some family roots to farmland. We've talked about on the PODCASTS. My father and grandfather side of the family grew up in Nebraska and Kansas. Plus you ever really want a seriously disconnect with some quiet time. There's no better place you couldn't connect if you wanted to. Or if you WANNA shoot guns drive around ATV. You're just not be bothered by anyone. Get some good reading time or or walk around and be a nature so you guys ever want to do a meeting meet up in western Kansas. Let me know. I've also detailed my private angel. Investing journey over the years on the blog and podcast. This goes in the get rich bucket. Though depending on the outcome could also be poor bucket. The long indefinite holding periods in big tax breaks for the major benefits of this approach plus. It's a lot of fun incredibly engaging and you wake up every day a lot more optimistic. You contrast that with a consistent negative geopolitical newsflow in public markets my God if you turn on the TV and watch seeing and and all these other channels read the Internet twitter. All you want to do is just panic and so everything but you look at a lot of these private investments all day long. It's people that are changing the world. You're like the most optimistic person in the world. Try to find a balance in between the two. I've considered my private investments so far as tuition and while the performance hurdle for me is US stock market. The hope is the portfolio. Do much better yet. If it's a big fat zero I would be okay with that. I wouldn't really but but I've come into it expecting. It could be zero as the performance of these so far look of the hundred fifty plus deals in which I participated most are still in their infancy. I understand that each of these investments really as a ten year time horizon if not more sometimes less but of hundred fifty. There's been about ten exits. I've had to bankrupt zero six acquisitions one. Ipo One secondary liquidity together. These are produced a average total return of one hundred twenty five percent on dollars invested or about forty two percent cager if you include the time Held and my still open investments. There's a lot of follow on rounds even a Unicorn or two on paper key. Were being on paper while these results are so far incomplete and produce a rosy view of angel investing. I'm very aware this period has been incredibly favorable for private enjoy equity investments as well as public markets. What's important in this endeavour? Sing it through a full cycle over the next decade. Believe me I lived in San Francisco during the early. Two thousand decimation an Internet winter. I'm sure I'll see a range of winners and losers and the goal for me is do this for a full business cycle so for at least another five years and hopefully end up with a portfolio. Two hundred maybe three hundred companies. Most of this I do through Alto. Ira as well as is in my own account that takes advantage. Usps we'll talk. We'll talk about more than minute. The biggest cash return so far was sixteen bagger which provided a good lesson power laws the private and public markets again. If you WANNA go online will will send you a lot of links that I think are super interesting from vanguard and J. P. Morgan and Longboard and Chris Mayer you know it's just a different mindset when you can't sell an investment had my money be invested in public stock. What are the odds? I would've sold after a double or a triple. I'm going to say high very high while the concept of buying and holding stock for the long run as a nice theory it can be hard implemented practice. I think it was either the very first or second investment on Angel. This is probably my best and I guarantee you if the public stock I would've sold it a million times along the way so all by the way I'll likely start sharing some of these private investments that we may do in the coming year you can follow along and joined the syndicate on Angels Link on the show notes. Let's move onto public investments? I just a note to anyone listening this who has money in our various funds retail which is most of us. Ask any mutual manager. Why should invest with them? And you'll likely find yourself met with a barrage of sales points all of which will underscore one takeaway. They're fun deserves lots of your money but when you asset manager what they do with their own money it may surprise you. Often many managers have zero dollars invested in their own fun. You don't have to believe me. Thanks to Ruskin or Morningstar. He published his oppose where he the percent of money managers that have nothing zero zip invested alongside their client money. They manage in a minute cases. It's half all the way up to eighty percent have zero invested zero and if you include those who invested a nominal amount but less than one hundred ran. The numbers are even higher. Some categories sixty five seventy five eighty five ninety five in have nothing invested in their own. Fun If you follow the blogger podcast for awhile. You know where I'm headed. That is absurd but I guess it shouldn't be surprising. The Mutual Fund industry has long been an area dominated by high fees tax inefficiencies sales. Load twelve one other investor unfriendly practices. Maybe these fund managers are actually smart enough not to invest in their own funds. They manage but the world is wising up and investors are voting with their checkbooks and the fund flows. Tell the story. I think it's important to have skin in the game. If I don't believe in our funds enough to invest my own money why should anyone else so for better or worse? I invest all of the public assets. I manage into funds. I manage then I leave it on. Autopilot this goes into stay rich bucket even though the right portfolio is whatever. Lets you sleep at night. I prefer a moderate risk portfolio that targets higher returns in buying hold with lower volatility and drawdowns. And that's quite a tall order. So that translates into my current allocation market-sensitive assets which I have described many times before as by an trend or what we like to call the strategy. You can find the Pie Chart Online. This trinity approach invest roughly half and a global strategic buying hold asset allocation. That is al Qaeda across stocks bonds assets the strategy includes tilts towards value and momentum instead of standard market cap weighted portfolios the other half of the Trinity Approach is invested in various trending strategies. The goal of these strategies reduce volatility and drawdowns while still targeting similar returns to buy and hold with low correlation. This works for me because if you read my blog was on the podcast you know. I'm a trend forward heart but I'm also a value investor. This approach. Lets me scratch both itches. As a trend for our I like the idea of having half my portfolio available to move the cash or hedges if markets trend down but as a value investor I want exposure to assets. That maybe cheap overlong horizons like. I believe foreign stock markets are now. I get both with this approach. I want all my public investments. Totally on autopilot. I don't WanNa have to make trades or think about buying that cheap country when my emotions are arguing against it. They're unlikely tripping me up I don't WanNa have to think about selling that amazing market as the trend INS. In fact I don't WanNa think about it at all but I do want the funds and strategies themselves to make all the adjustments for me and objective automated in tax efficient manner. This allocation includes what I consider to be my cash account. This has been a big change over the years of my thing namely that should be investing at least some or all of your safe-money had tipped Danny again Betterman as well as the last discussion on the get rich portfolio and stay rich gives me earlier piece we did on the stay rich demonstrates what many believe to be the safest portfolio isn't I believe when measured on a real after inflation basis. A cash account is as risky as a nice asset allocation with much less return potential so I- invest nearly all the cash type investments. I would have been abroad. Allocation ETF and only retain a small amount for short-term living expenses the next slice the foreign funds category which represents four one K. And five twenty nine plans both the which sadly only offer me mutual fund choices so I just tossed them in the best low cost investment. I can find. Which is I write. Podcasts or foreign stock markets in emerging markets. Of course that we had a link on this we talked about before you can see twitter loser. Mind over that revelation. My company is trying to get access to our own funds here with Cambria qualified plan offerings. In which case I'll move my funds over at that time next up you'll see an allocation detail R- strategies I consider this a hedge against my career Beta as well as a hedge for all my private stock holdings and this is funny because I wrote this earlier in the first quarter and I said I'll look out a lot more if the stock market ever enters the downtrend again. Isn't that funny? So I have about fourteen percent in the tail allocation twelve percent. It's probably fourteen percent now and then we've also mentioned many times in my company on the balance sheet actually allocates about a quarter of its Balance Sheet to tail R- strategies about half to short term bond strategies in another quarter to trinity. Which I think is a pretty big departure for for most people. But the whole point of this is showing. We actually put our money where a mouth is not just personally but also other companies. Well once you get to the very very right side of the decimal point and these are rounding errors at this point. There's a smidgen cannabis theme I'm bullish on over the next decade. I've detail my plan on the blog last summer as well as on the podcast plan on adding more quote and more and more as cannabis stocks declined quote and decline in decline. We actually said this when we're on Bloomberg but also in past post when we looked at the historical prohibition ending with a lot of the beer alcohol stocks in the Nineteen Thirties. They almost double the return of the broad market for the decade after prohibition ended but it was lumpy and most of it came and actually in the second half of that decade so I would expect as a cannabis industry matures as these companies. Start to get more and more professional incorporated in his lot of big dudes the big money. Move down the vertical chain. It'll actually be a great industry overtime next up. I'm bullish on Africa's a theme will look to make an allocation in the coming years. Haven't yet but would really like to. I don't like a lot of the offerings so we may actually Devise and launch a fun there. I would also like to add more to my farm. Allocation as the asset class has been somewhat challenged in the past few years but would love to own more. They're lastly they're tiny amounts in rare coins. Comic books and even crypto currencies. The rare coin goes back to Van Simmons episode which was an early days the podcast one of my favorites though and this fits in the stay rich bucket and also maybe in the fun bucket comics. I've had for thirty plus years. Shout out thanks mom and fit into the fund bucket to the greatest irony there. I laugh about his. Despite the thousands of comics I own. Mom wants dug a few out of the attic. That we're some sort of cowboy comic from Mike who knows the nineteen sixties or something. This probably worth more than my entire collection combined along with Jordan rookie card. I mean you can't make it up anyway crypto. Well that falls what? I call onto the regret minimization bucket as I've said many times before I'm not really attracted to Crypto as an asset class but I'm willing to make an allocation in line the global market cap which is about zero point five percent of the global assets mainly to avoid regret if the space ever goes up in value hundred thousand times and also to quiet all my friends from the badgering me. If they do it's well worth the sunk cost listeners. That's about it. Feel free to shoot me any thoughts. I would love to hear feedback at favourite show dot com and best of luck with your own investment journey. But let's end on an important note that is often overlooked and the countless hours. We all spend on our investments. What's the point? Remember that money is only a means to an end. Is there to help you achieve your goals and happiness? Does it help you fulfill your dream travel? What about putting her grandkid's college? Perhaps it's there for you to support a local charity or social. 'cause that's dear to you or maybe just want to help establish the next generation of entrepreneurs through capitalism or maybe official your buds whatever but the investments. Help get you there or the shirt shorter version. My mom and grandma used to have a habit of saying look. You can't take it with you. And lastly will end with a longer version. We've had on the blog since inception over a decade ago. Actually in our first book this is George Mallory from the book climbing Everest the complete writings George Mallory quote people. Ask Me what is the use of climbing Mount Everest in my answer must at once be it is up new use? There's not the slightest prospect of any gain whatsoever. Oh we may learn a little about the behavior of the human body at high altitudes and possibly medical men may turn our observation to some account for the purposes of aviation but otherwise nothing will come of it. We should not bring back a single bit of gold or silver not Jim nor any colour iron. If you cannot understand that there's something man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it. That the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward. Then you won't see. Wah We go what we get from this adventure as just sheer joy enjoy is after all the end of life we do not live to eat make money we eat and make money to be able to live. That's what life means what life is for investing in the time of minus nine percent five percent minus five percent minus ten percent nine percent. Those were the daily returns the stock market last week as my grandmother used to say law. Have mercy that's enough to get most market participants in Ulcer. Corona virus wrecking economies in overloading. Health Care Systems around the globe. Do the uncertainty involved. One could easily make a case for two wildly different outcomes. Let's start with the bulk. Ace following the experience of Italy countries around the world. Take this threat seriously. Tests are plentiful events or cancelled and citizens Hornsey governments around the world coordinate fiscal monetary and healthcare policies to address most major threats. The infection rate peak. Soon we're already seeing the number of new infections in China drop to single digits for the first time since reporting began back in mid January with hospitals well-staffed able to manage the patient load. Death totals were mild treatments are developed. Vaccines are distributed and Global. Immunity prevents any major future outbreaks economies in markets rebound vigorously citizens around the world. Where you four and wrist on markets rebound with a fury not seen in decades financial markets. Hit new highs by your hand. Now let's look at the barricades some countries around the world. Take this threat seriously. But it's too late in the viruses already. Spread too far much of the global population ignored suggestions. To self quarantine cases go exponential in hospitals are overwhelmed and unable to manage the patient load debt total sore beyond expectations world leaders. Celebrities and athletes are not spare. Most people know friend or family member dies from the virus treatments affected. Vaccines are years away and experiments with hurt me. Immunity or a disaster governments tried to implement burst financial and social stimulus policies to no avail. Trump is expected to be a short term problem economies and markets impacted. Massively citizens around the world are fearful and depressed in risky financial markets. Continue to plummet the. Us stock market declines thirty percent after its current declines taking it back to historically average evaluations around eighteen oil real estate goal in most financial assets. Slide as well. The summer brings some relief from the virus and economies prove market stabilize people since the nightmares over however by fall the virus reemerges prompting despair amongst global citizens in markets continue to decline to valuation levels. Not seen since the bottom of the global financial crisis another thirty percent down to a long-term term valuation around twelve which sixty percent down from the peak in early twenty twenty so which scenario is most likely to occur. I don't know no one really knows the reality like many things is likely somewhere in the middle but with such massively different future possibilities. Many investors are wondering what to do. An answer for most of us is nothing or as the late John. Bogle stated my rule. And it's good only about ninety nine percent of the time so I have to be careful here when these crisis come along the best role you can possibly follow not. Don't stand there do something but rather don't do something stand there into quote. We try to drive this point home in our letter to shareholders last week titled Time to panic which was the beginning of this series. And it's worth the read but or listen but here's an excerpt quote. Global markets are experiencing large moves up and down recently as many investors are freaking out. Us stocks have declined by some of the most in history often triggering circuit breakers depositing trading investors. All over social media panicking. Because they don't have a plan but you do you put in work over the past decade. You've read our block votes in books. You listen to podcasts. And eventually you built a plan and take note not all the same plan but at least you have one soon. It hits the fan like it is. Now you're prepared quote. Our investors read our pieces for the past fourteen years. That have prepared him for this. There was a piece on. How really big daily stock market moves or five percent to ten percent are pretty normal. But also that they tend to cluster together particularly in downtrends nail paper called where the black swans hide. We also talked about the four quadrants of stock markets. Meaning you could put the stock market into cheap or expensive but also is it an uptrend or downtrend and we found that the best performing market was a cheap uptrend. Let's second best was an expensive option. Which is what we've had for the past few years. The problem always came when it flipped from an expensive uptrend too expensive downtrend and that's when returns get really nasty like they have and we profiled ad in post keeping it simple. We also published piece that demonstrated what assets helped to hedge these big down periods in stocks piece. We did call worried about the market and as it turns out the assets that hedged historically so tail risk strategies bonds cash gold trend following strategies. Actually helped this time too and the ones. You wouldn't expect to help real estate. Most commodities like energy and oil particularly foreign stocks. Didn't help in. Some cases did works you mentally prepared for the foul periods because you read the piece demonstrated many assets can go long periods experiencing measly returns in underperforming other assets but still be worth investing in and that was called. How long can you handle underperforming? You learn to think in terms of decades rather than days quarters months or even years by taking the long view after reading and listening to the price of the series the get rich stay rich portfolio. Let's say you read all these pieces you listen to podcasts. And you put your plan into place congrats. Well done now. You get to sit back. Relax and do nothing. Easier said than done of course. But that's what I plan to do with allocation which you've also read about in papers Trinity Portfolio as well as part of the series called. How invest my money? Which is nice. We love to see professional investors. Do this not just to show and demonstrate. They have skin in the game as you guys remember. Most mutual fund managers don't put anything in their own funds but also showed that none of us are perfect. All of our portfolios including the pros have their works in under performers as well now to be fair. It's easy to do nothing when many of us how private assets were. You couldn't do anything even if you wanted to to. Promote people listening this relevant examples their house a lot of people have most of their net worth invested in a private asset. You couldn't price every day couldn't sell it today if you wanted to. Maybe you could probably not the price you want infamy. We posted a picture on the blog. It's two years old walking through a weak field in Kansas. I couldn't price farmland today if I wanted to on the public side again. It's a lot easier said than done because you can look at quotes every day and your phone or computer and it's really hard to resist temptation to check your broker outs every minute. But this market to me. It really illustrates the beauty of the approach that either opted the trinity strategies where half of my allocation is global buying hold allocation across stocks bonds. Real assets with tilted stallion momentum. So for the rest of the year. We hit the bulk. Ace we conquer the virus in markets Right back up. I'm covered the portfolio also rebounds and keep tilting more and more to the cheap stuff as it gets cheaper and cheaper now the other half the allegation is in various strategies and if markets continue their free fall down in. Maybe there's parts of this beer case that happened. I hope not. I'm also protected. Granted some strategies didn't help as much as normal this year as markets race. Down as many of you know trend usually takes little time to adjust from ALL-TIME HIGHS IN FOR US TAX. For example we had the fastest move ever from all-time highs to a bear market and that goes along with lines with something. We've talked about a lot on the podcast. Before which is when times of stress professional investors love to reach out clients. Say Okay. It's okay clients relax. This has happened before but we always used to joke. That eventually will all experience something. That's never happened before. In this case this mark environment has added a few things that have never happened before in the speed at which we went from all-time highs to bear market is one so for me. Mentioned this many times before on the technical term but I like to go have z's half and buying hold and a half and trend or what I call buying trend. Frankly I never wanna be all in any outcome because after all the future is uncertain plus. I think it's important for me. It's automated so I don't have to think about it so I mainly planned to just stand there. But the thing about big market dislocations they create massive stress emotional stress financial stress marital stress and probably ten other kinds. And these stresses lead people to act bananas crazy with their money. So let that be your opportunity and not your downfall somebody to outline a few ideas to put in your quiver in the coming days weeks months. You don't need to watch the markets for these. During Times of market dislocations. There are some steps. I think one can make reasonable and could add some value over time. Let's discuss a few number one over rebounding. Overreach bouncing is a concept. We talked about both on our old robber not podcasts. As well as in the Howard marks one he called it a different phrase calibrating where most people listeners here. Set a schedule two rebounds your portfolio. Let's say you got or traditional sixty forty stocks bonds or foyer you rebounds once a year at the end of the year however given an extreme move down stocks you do rebound setback six forty but if they got really cheap in some markets in my opinion right now emerging markets are probably NPR. Ratios DOWN AROUND. Ten mini witcher are probably single digit ratios. You may consider taking the portfolio too little pass target so instead of say sixty forty you may go sixty five thirty five. Now Take Note. I didn't say going from sixty forty to ninety ten and you should also identify what extreme means ahead of time for valuations on both sides and try to codify it so when these things happen you have a set of rules to work with again in terms of over renouncing trimming calibrating and not bet the house all in or all out. That's a prescription for the poor house in trying to burn herself with the requirement of perfect timing for adding your portfolio during the cell for example. Let's say you're prudent investor a massive stockpile of dry powder cash ready for prices investing in also toilet paper. Now you have it in window. Put it to work. Of course. That's not an easy question to answer though it is in hindsight of course after off. The market's rebound quickly. The answer is now but if the kroner vires doesn't hit us with a second way in the fall in the markets drop another thirty percent than investment. Today it would be premature quite painful again. No one has a crystal ball. No one can time the markets perfectly so. Stop making that demand of yourself. Perhaps the better approach simply considering what levels of pullback. You feel it's appropriate employer cash. No I didn't write or say feel comfortable appropriate after all. It will probably feel scared. Putting money in the market anytime in the near future given this volatility but now might be worthy of one translator capital down another ten percent mind warrant a second chance and so on the answer specific view the amount of capital you have to invest in your belief about our world in the markets were funded situation for others. They'll just continue to dollar cost average month into their 401k. As many you know I've said this many times mind simply goes into an emerging markets each month an. Im stoked. I am so excited for that to go in every month for the rest of the year. I've had friends reach out and say Mab. Should I continue allocating the my retirement account and my Lord? If you're young this is a fantastic opportunity. So if you haven't started saving and investing if you haven't started maxing out retirement accounts this goes back to one of my favorite quotes attributed Marco. Who's been on the PODCAST? The goes along the lines up. Investing is the only business when things go on sale. Everyone runs out of the store. And I think that's a good indication. If you're a long term investor should be lated the markets are down and you can buy them. It's cheaper and cheaper prices to regardless the appropriate question. Ask yourself isn't is this the bottom but rather in five or ten years. Is there a good chance? I'll be happy. I invested at this level number two opportunistic. Investing buying dollar for fifty cents in times of market panic. Minnea- sets can trade away from fair value. I mentioned on twitter. The placing limit orders a little bit below the bid. On the end. You'd like to own can be a tool to pick up some chairs and nice discounts. Now make sure you wanna own them in the first place because you just might get filled and that's good advice. Always you should always always always use limit orders. Another similar concept is investing funds that really trade far away from their net asset value. In general and talking. `Bout closed end funds here. Ets usually don't trade that far away from the net asset value because they have market makers that can arbitrage it but closing under different most of the time these funds trade within a few percent of the Navy but at times of stress they can get twenty thirty forty percent or more discounts. Now you have to be careful and do your own homework. Many of these funds US leverage they are tax inefficient have higher expense ratios. So do your homework but I'm looking into is a great website closed in fund. Connect or you can sort the discounts. There's even profile these way back in my book. The Ivy portfolio with a number of hedge funds that trade different venues around World Doa CNAS. One Dan Loeb third. Point is another and some of these are getting too highs. Forty percent discounts than value. But anyway take a look your own due diligence but it could be interesting in the coming months. Lastly blood in the streets buying totally hated blood in the streets. Bombed out assets can be a great idea we used to do a lot of post detailing how buying assets by closing is holding her nose and bind sectors industry is countries down a lot meaning sixty eighty ninety percent and then holding a few years can be a great strategy and this dislocation is 'cause a lot of markets like oil and gas exploration currently down ninety percent and there's a lot of ways to approach this again. It's not all of a sudden cannonball under the pool and put all your money in one tiny and industry down ninety percent because back to another favorite investing joke. What he calls something down ninety percent. That was something that was down eighty percent and they went down fifty percent more. These can still be risky despite being down that much but it can be for the areas to look and has a couple of different ways. You can do it. You could scale into these markets over time so you could say maybe I'm gonNA identify five of these markets down ninety percent. I'M GONNA put in some this quarter some next quarter some the following quarter. Maybe it's this year some next year. Or maybe it's you wait till they earn uptrend across long term moving average. I don't know but both sound reasonable me again the takeaway for all three of these are these should be under periphery. You should have ninety ninety five percent of your investing plans set but if you want to act like you're doing some things in time to take advantage of others irrationality there. Is THAT LITTLE DIAL. You can turn a little bit. But try to avoid binary thinking of inner out on anything but rather how can I calibrate trim or over rebounds so we're GONNA wind down? Look I hope this helps as always we're here for investors. If you WANNA talk Shumita email give us a call me up on twitter. Shoot me a DM but lightly. You don't need to because you prepare for this. Stay safe and healthy everyone. Thanks for listening good investing.

PLANTSTRONG Snackables - Dressing Up Those Summer Salads

"Welcome to our spin off of the plan. Strong podcast that we are affectionally calling snack with me. Russell's thin and my co host jessica pastora where we dish and literally chew on all things related to food on today's episode. We talk about how our friends the sarnoff brothers chad. And and derek are shaking things up outside a subway sandwich shops offering free foot long alternative tuna subs to promote their new line of plant based alternative seafood products be on the lookout for good catch products at grocery retailers. Near you we talk about a few of our favorite things with a plan. Strong team member product recommendation. That will dress up anything. Green leafy in addition to dressing up your production of nitric oxide. We want those endo theol- cells to sing. We provide a tip for a morning energy boost. That works better than coffee. And we give you a formula for how to make foolproof oil free salad dressing at home and guess what no measuring required now. It's time to dig into this bite-sized episode. Hello everyone i want to welcome you. Back to another episode of the snack ables podcast. This is the bite-size podcast where we just a can i. We basically chew and dish on all things related to food. So thank you for being here jessica. Since our last podcast you got married. That was the first episode. Your your last name is now hegarty. Yes jessica hegarty and you have a bun in the oven. That actually is is coming along very nice starting to right. I'm starting to feel the stretch. i sure but yes. We refer to her as our oil free whole food plant based date sweetened bun in the oven. Beautiful things so some some news before we dive into some food. Recently good catch has just decided to kind of be a major disruptor and there as we just talked about their trolling rolling subway. Yes and they have a have trucks in new york city. London and austin texas of all places and their parking right outside. Subways with a van that says our way and very similar similar fought to subway's logo. There's definitely some similarities very intentional. Yup and the reason is it kind of came to people's attention that subway was supposedly using bycatch for their tuna which contains supposedly no tuna whatsoever. You actually did some digging and you found out what exactly. The results were inconclusive. So they there were two customers who alleged that there was not tuna in their tuna recipe. there was dna research done. And the results were inconclusive. Determined in subway said that something about the cooking process may have affected results. So we'll see. But whatever you know. I want to applaud good. Catch derek chats. Sorry now in the hawgood catch team for really kind of getting out there. And being a disruptive force actually was just test texting with chad who said that just this morning. They gotta cease-and-desist letter from subway. Yes so it sounds like this was a one time a one day thing. They're not continuing through the rest of the week. I was a little bit disappointed. I feel like we should have chased him down. If we know about this chasing down. I wanted to get a free foot lung. Good catch tuna sandwich. Three foot long sandwich. That's great deal. It's a great deal. And they were in austin our missed it. You're the ultimate in marketing and publicity totally so today i think what we should do is. Let's think outside the salad addressing bottle and And talk about salads and things of that nature yeah. I don't know if you notice. I where my shirt kind of celebrate the occasion with lots of greens kale and collard. Greens and spinach turnips. Broccoli cabbage one of these. Things is not like the other. And i know i know you probably know which one of these things stands out as inconsistent from the rest of the bunch. I would say spinach because spinach is not a cruciferous green vegetable. That's right so they're all leafy greens. Spinach is the one that's not or they're all greens. I guess but spinach is the one. That's not cruciferous. Still good for you though so. Speaking of which was the last time you sell it. Oh my gosh. I had one yesterday. And i'll probably have one as soon as we wrap this up. It'll be my lunch. I made off the posts in the show notes. I made a salad last night. My youngest daughter hope and i. We both made our salads. And i used a whole bunch of kale that was finally chopped up to huge handfuls of rubella and then a mammoth handful of spinach and then with that i had mango. I had black beans. I had bell. pepper broccoli grilled. Tofu grilled corn off the cob. He was outstanding. That sounds truly gourmet. That sounds wonderful. And i was going to ask you. Actually i feel like there are two types of people in the world. Those that do fruit with their salads. And those who don't so it sounds like you're in the fruit camp. I i have a sweet tooth. I always have. I love adding mango or blueberries or strawberries. Even grapefruit to my to my salads. Yeah what about you. Sound a little strange with the grapefruit. I love grapefruit. I've been doing a grapefruit today recently. But that sounds a little strange to meet for me. My most consistent one is apples. I always put apples and a standard basic If i'm doing something with kale like you were talking about with the salad with chopped kale all use diced date pieces to really give some sweetness to counteract that bitterness but with the recent weather and since it's been so blisteringly hot across the nation. Really i've been doing these fabulous summer salads that have fresh corn fresh cucumbers and absolutely fresh peaches. What i want my salad these days and we we just we got a ton of nectarines. Nectarines are perfect. right now. perfect. I go through at least three a day Date i never put a date in my sal. I'm telling you know. I will especially once the the teesta batista fire the firms. Once they're back in stock in september. I would definitely recommend putting those in your salad especially anything with kale really makes a lotta sense. One of the things that i wanted to share with our listeners. Today is this incredible. Balsamic dressing that. I've been using all of my summer. Salads and i love oprah definitely follow her favorite things list and i feel like we need to do a plant strong team favorites list and this would definitely be on there. So can i talk about this product out judgment. Because you're gonna think. I'm out of my mind for the money that i spend on a ball stomach vinegar so i won't wanna do want to know how much you spend on. So nobody would bat an eye for a forty dollar bottle of wine rate and in our household. Don't drink we're not buying the filet mignon or the lobster tails or the fancy specialty cheeses rates. So when we do splurge it's on things like vinegar and this is one of my favorite products. So it's the cuccia in moray balsamic vinegar of modina. It's thirty five to forty dollars a bottle at whole foods which it's expensive. Yes but a little goes a long way. All you need is the finest little drizzle and the reason is so. It's so expensive is because it's really reduced. They're more grapes in this than there is in the average Balsamic vinegar and as you can see. I'm kinda like singing. Around with maple syrup super syrupy. I mean you know it's sticking to the side of the bottle and it's absolutely delicious so this is also one of my favorite gift ideas. If there's somebody living plant shung diet living the plant strong lifestyle eating whole food. Plant based maybe. I don't want to bring them some chocolates. Maybe i don't wanna bring them some wine. I'll bring them really nice bottle of vinegar in in our family. We we have some different varieties. There's a company called be on pause that and they've got an assortment of varieties from fig chocolate cherry every flavor. You can imagine bossom advantage interesting. Yeah it's wild and then there's olive tap as well that my My mom is a huge fan of yeah. I've heard jane talk about the olive tab and it's like a specialty store. Yeah okay. I believe it's in cleveland. It's even though it's called the tap it doesn't these don't have olive oil in them. I would say for anybody who's trying to find. A ball stomach minna guy would check for oil. It's not common that it's in there but sometimes if you're finding glazes or those sticker options they can have added sugar so it would be on the lookout for that but yeah there's a ton of great options and what's great about using a high quality super dense balsamic vinegar is. You really just need this and a little bit of salt and pepper. You don't need to add anything else to it. So it's great as a standalone on salads in. i hope we'll get into some salad dressings. Today's yes but it is nice that you know if you're in a hurry and you don't feel like doing a darn thing you can just whip out that balsam ag vinegar whenever flavor you like and just put it on top of your your salad like any split absolutely and we actually use it on. Open face sandwiches as well. It's great on sandwiches. sometimes. I actually have it. Have it with breakfast. Can you guess what. I might put it on for breakfast breakfast. Do you put on top of your oatmeal. No i think gregor has a balsamic cherry bowl bowl recipe brawl -able it's like Beans rice got Oats barley rice. Oats dr gregory. The brogel the bro ball no there. There's an role but yeah. He does kind of savory. Or maybe it's sweet. It's got cherries in it too. That's a little too out there for me. I think but i actually do it sometimes again with steamed greens for breakfast so doesn't matter whatever occasion. You're eating your steamed greens. But again a little bit of the small stomach vinegar on top would be well. I'm glad to hear you're doing that. And where did you learn to do that. So i was gonna say. This is a habit that i really developed when i attended your immersion in asheville. I remember for breakfast. You would have this elaborate meal bar with oatmeal berries bananas all of these toppings and then a huge area of fresh steamed greens and so that combination of oatmeal in greens was really something. I took from your emergence. When i came home. I continued for a month very deliberately. Greens with breakfast every single morning. And i noticed i got such an energy boost. It was better than a cup of coffee so just having my oatmeal with the greens with balsamic vinegar gave me so much energy. It was incredible. I need to bring this back into my my daily routine. Now you're also probably didn't have the option of getting coffee immersion or maybe was hat. It was have cafo. Yes half cavs so yes. It's a good coffee substitute for sure. It's surprisingly good. And the other thing i noticed when i was eating greens for breakfast. It felt like make complexion changed for the better. My cheeks were a little bit rosier so there was something about that. Greens and vinegar combination. That was really working for my body. Well so that makes sense on a lot of levin's so one of the reasons so let me just kinda you get into this from a physiologic point of view and so in rice vinegar and balsamic vinegar you have something called. Cd gasset in a scenic. Acid is a substance that actually enhances the production of something called nitric. Oxide synthase enzyme. That's within all of our endothelial cells and if you'll remember Are sixty five thousand. Miles of muscles are lying. The innermost lining is with these endothelial cells. And the as my father likes to say the life jacket of our vessels and what happens is as we age these nitric oxide. Synthase enzyme it. Actually it decreases by about ten percent every decade some of the time. You're fifty your nitric oxide. Synthase enzyme is fifty percent. It's working at fifty percent of what it was when you were younger. When you're seventy five it's working at twenty five percent and there's also a lot of things that also disrupt this this from happening. It's smoking cigarettes. It's an inflammatory heavy meat and dairy based diet. It's a lot of processed foods. All these things disrupt your ability for your endothelial cells to pump out nitric oxide so that being the case and especially with my father's patients that have severe heart disease. His protocol and hours in the seven day rescue program as we want you to eat four to six servings of green leafy vegetables a day and we want you to drizzle or as my father likes to say anoint them with balsamic vinegar to help enhance the production of nitric oxide. Now the reason why we want to eat it there's there's two pathways that that produce nitric oxide. The i talked about where your body just naturally as pumping out nitric oxide because nitric oxide synthase enzyme. That's within ourselves. But as we age that decreases so there's a nother another kind of a backup redundant source and that is through the foods we eat. And that's why we like to do the green leafy for to six times a day and night them with the the ball summit vinegar and one of the things that i discovered when i had a gentleman named nathan bryant on the vikings season two is that it is so crucial that we choose our green leafy because of the oral bacteria that are in our mouths they're responsible for basically breaking down the nitrates that are in those green leafy turning them into nitrites and then those nitrate nitrites downstream get turned into nitric oxide. Now here's a little something that's very very important. Almost two hundred million americans are doing one of three or four things daily. That is acting as a nitric oxide disruptor. So if you're using and acids right that affects the oral bacteria in your mouth and also in your gastrointestinal track. If you're using toothpaste with fluoride not also will disrupt it. If you are taking antibiotics that also disrupts it and then. Lastly is an antiseptic mouthwash. So any one of those four things and close to two hundred million. Americans are doing any one of these every single day. So anyway i i kind of got off but no writ though is such helpful information so you know. One of the things that i'm thinking about is increasing my blood flow rate. I wanna make sure that. I have good blood flow. And if you're somebody who's struggling with high blood pressure you're an athlete preparing for an event. These are all things to take into consideration soon. Acids no mouthwash antiseptic mouthwash. No antiseptic mouthwash. Okay and then do floor toothpaste. Use use a fluoride free toothpaste. Yes i mean let's be really judicious about at antibiotics that systemically basically kill off the good healthy bacteria that are in your mouth and gastrointestinal tract. That's great okay. Well i'll remember to chew my greens a little bit better. Anoint them with some sort of vinegar and again what's happening there. So that the cdc acid unlocks or contribute i would say it enhances enhances okay it enhances the again. You can't hear this enough It enhances the nitric oxide. Synthase enzyme that is within that is located within the endothelial cells and then allows the affiliate cells to produce that much more. Nitric oxide now. Another thing that i learned it was very interesting in my conversation with dr nathan bryant was the shelf life of nitric. Oxide is basically one second. What's this magic molecule in. Its alive for one second. So i mean it's constantly being you know died and reborn diner reborn. And that's one of the reasons why we wanna do four to six servings show that we're constantly just having a supply of nitric oxide flowing through our system that makes total sense. So so if you're even if you're a college student who is preparing for an exam and wants to increase their mental agility or whatever. You're preparing for something. I would probably recommend the same thing for them right an interesting point that i also learned when i was interviewing nathan bryant was was one of the foremost authorities on the planet. Nitric oxide was that he is encountered twelve year olds that because of the diet that they have the lifestyle they have the vascular system of a sixty or seventy year old. And then here's the good news. Conversely he's found seventy five eighty eighty five year olds that have the vascular system up a twenty thirty year old. So this really. This really does work. Well that's something. I'll definitely take into consideration as the weeks. Take on as i get into the late part of my third trimester. I'm gonna do this four to six times a week handful of steamed leafy greens covered in vinegar. I'm gonna do it for the blood flow. i'm gonna do it absolutely wonderful. Wonderful so thinking about vinegars. Of course that's a great thing to put on any salad. And we want to incorporate that as we can but the last thing i want to talk about today since we're talking about a salads and greens is how ridiculously easy. It is to make an incredible salad dressing at home. And it's so hard or darn near impossible to find wail free. Sugar free dressings in grocery stores. You really have to create them at an fat free and fat free. Yeah it's it's a huge challenge. There are some out there. But i promise they're not going to be as good as what you can whip up in your in your house so what. I've got for our listeners. Today we're calling it the anatomy of a salad dressing. So it's foolproof structure for making homemade plant strong salad dressings and before we get into it. I just wanna say listeners. I want to give you a pep talk. Feel like i should address like rosie. The riveter today dressings and sauces are so easy. I want you to have the confidence in the kitchen. I feel i want you to feel empowered to create these dressings sauces. At home. you can do it. It's easier than you think. I promise willing to thing here and i'm so glad that you gave that little pep talk because sauces dressings are really what dress up in. Make this lifestyle so dynamic and we already have an embarrassment of riches with this lifestyle and this just takes over the top so anyway yeah. What do you have for us so so. It's it's a strangely overwhelming World of recipes for people And homemade dressings don't have to feel like this big hurdle so you know. It's one of the fastest things you can whip up at home and again. I want people to have confidence. You do not need to measure. I'm going to repeat that with homemade salad. Dressings you do not need to measure you can do everything to taste so you don't have to worry or obsess about remembering ratios. You don't have to look things up. You don't have to dirty a bunch of measuring seafoods. I'm gonna talk you through the structure of a good dressing and from there. I want to challenge our listeners. To try to come up with something customized to their teeth buds. So what any chef or food. Scientists are product developer. Would we'll tell you about a good dressing or sauce is that it has four key elements fat salt sour and sweet. And so all you're trying to do is really light up all of those different taste receptors on your tongue and so we've put together a little inspiration document that has four quadrants with suggestions for specific ingredients for each of these elements so reprimanded show you my screen here under the fat quadrant. Were suggesting blended nuts of any kind or nut butters of course. Walnuts pecans almonds. You can use a peanut butter rate blended. Seeds at heaney or sunflower dressing could use pumpkin seeds. Get bad extra zinc in there. If you're looking for a nut. Free option still provide that fatty mouth. Feel that cream avocado rate. And if you're somebody who's actively fighting against heart disease who's really trying to monitor their fat really trying to keep that low. Of course you could use beans of any kind you could use s. which is a little bit of tahini or no tahini. You could use silken tofu. Any of those would make a great base for a salad dressing. Let me chime in here and say that we do want to be for those that as you said for those that have had or have heart disease for those that are pre-diabetic. Have insulin resistance for those. That had a shot across the bow with cancer. Highly recommend that you're very judicious with the amount of fat that she us here. But if not right if you're young if your athletic if you don't have any of these than a little bit of fat in the form of nuts or seeds or avocado is absolutely should be okay. Yeah and i'm envisioning like a huge salad bowl full of all these fresh vegetables. And then the twenty. Five percent of calories come from fat could come from these nuts and seeds so that was our fat quadrant in the salt quadrant. We have me so which is a great option rate. it's a bean sodium rate really really The beans almost offset the nutritional Hindrances of the sodium may vinegar. We talked about this on the last episode. Our friend brenda. Who was just here are chef for the immersion. Was talking about how it's her secret. Weapon and everything i was like. That's what i said it's my secret weapon and everything so you may vinegar. You could also use this example. How you how you using vinegar. I would use it in place of any salt anytime. I wanna salt my my dishes. I would just use who may vinegar and said in soups in casseroles in dressings. Brenda was talking about how she just uses. You may vinegar salad dressing nothing else. Or greens just got a great rich flavor over right here i do. I haven't over there on that side and again. It's as beautiful pink color. Let's add this to our favorite line product. I just want to take a quick little. it's very salty to get. It's okay no no. It is salty but yeah yeah it's it's a wretched scott that you mommy tastes almost like a mushroom greeley really good one of my favorite products and then of course we could use a low sodium soy sauce and then for the sour category of course lemons or limes. And then any type of vinegar. Like we've just been talking about and then if you want to. You can add some sweetness light up. Those receptors dates or blended dates or date syrup. You talked about fresh fruits rate. I've heard lots of good dressing recipes with a blended mango or a blended blackberry. So that's a way to add sweetness. And then of course i want to say with those blended up. Fruits does not to be fresh. It can be frozen frozen absolutely well. Absolutely absolutely maple. Syrup would be another great option. Or if you've got an orange hanging around cut. It opens fresh orange juice in there. It's it's a great option So you pull one or two more things. From each of those four quadrants mix it together thin to a desired consistency with water. Or if you want a little bit more cream yes you could use an unsweetened almond milk or milk and then if you want to you can enhance with some additional flavors. You could throw in some fresh dill or some parsley or chives or black pepper. You could add your favorite hot sauce but again it's not necessary. You just need one thing from each of those four quadrants so rip. If i asked you to build a salad dressing which of these watch. What from each category would you pick to kind of built one. Let's just play a game for the first one for the I'm actually gonna go with. I'm gonna go with being okay. I'm going to go with a with a white bean. Oh that's great like a creamy castellini or something that was delicious and then for the salt for the salt. I'm going to go with the vinegar. A good choice and then for the hour. What do you think we'd go there. Yep sour well I really want to kind of pump up my nitric oxide. Synthase enzyme so i'm gonna go with the With the ball selling vinegar on vinegar. They're excellent excellent and then fresh sweetness. Sweet i'm gonna go with a squeeze of an orange that sounds great and warned a creamy orange stomach vinegar dressing matt towns absolutely amazing. I think i would do what about you. I i think i would do the ones that popped out to me. I know walnuts. I love them for their omega. Three to six ratio. of course. i'm going to go with the vinegar from assault so walnut salt lemon because everybody has lemon or lemon juice in their kitchen and men something sweet you to go at that date syrup all all day every day. That's correct this is really. It's so empowering when you can actually look at just the four quadrants and then you're given different choices and then you can put it together and it's almost like an infinite number of possibilities infinite number of possibilities and what i like about this is. It's a great way to bring kids into the kitchen as well. So you're letting them select you're giving them some autonomy. You really can't go wrong. And then they helped make the dressing that can eat over salads and greens wonderful. There's there's a addressing the that. I made actually just last night for that. The salad i talked about at the top of the show. And it's just it's a it's a variation on the three to one zahle addressing that i got to say something posted in the show that is really an invention of my sister jane and doing three to one. I just do a third a third third. So it's a third maple syrup. A third balsamic vinegar and a third. Oh wait but because. It wasn't on the quadrant. I was right what it's a spicy brown mustard so spicy brown mustard maple syrup and balsamic vinegar. Those are the three and this way dressing. It isn't it doesn't be pain. And and then i just like you said i'll just whipping up a make more than i want. I'll shake it up. Actually like a little bit thinner and i can keep it in the fridge for three or four or five days absolutely. It's a wildly easy wildly easy and you can walk into any kitchen if you're visiting your family if you're visiting friends and you want to help out with dinner. Just go see what they have the fridge and when you say let me just whip up addressing salad dressing for this or addressing for the greens. Their jaws gonna hit the ground. And you're just going to go through their for instance perfect. Here's here's the sweet. Here's this hour. Here's the fat in. Here's the segue this often. Our fat sleet. And you don't even need the sweet really. I don't know that you needed but yes. It's very empowering you can. You're you're you're going to feel like a total gourmet in their kitchen for sure and really impress folks so again. Please feel confidence. Do everything to taste and like my art teacher used to say you haven't ruined yet so he and it's a little too salty out a little more sour thin it out a little bit. Yeah those are good words. And i just i look and i look at my my daughters and my son and they're just get reckless. Get a little reckless in the kitchen. And it's okay. It's okay to make mistakes right. That's what that's what life is about. And if you're not making mistakes you're not you're not you're not live in large totally totally and you're going to develop a really good intuition when i'm making these dressings. I don't even have to sample it before i serve. I know it's gonna be great. You very quickly kind of got a mental understanding remember correctly during snow. Snow here in austin texas. When you and evan came and lived with us for. I think it was two nights and three days. You made some of the most outstanding dressings and you put together the slugs on the bowed and you guys treated us to dinner but it was. It really was fun. And if you're visiting somebody if you can contribute a little bit just with like making addressing some sort of a dish. It goes a long way. Good point near encouraging more vegetables eating or you can do it over a green ball So i actually brought some stuff today. I know the academy house doesn't have a full pantry doesn't have a whole lot going on So i brought over some ingredients to just do a quick demo. You wanna get started handed over what he wants short. Yeah we can do it now. That sounds great. All right all right and we're back. It was that fast. So i'm gonna pretend like. I just rummaged through your pantry and kitchen and i found some almond butter standard. Found that lemon juice that everyone's gotten their kitchen. I always pack the may apply vinegar with me so i'd shop and a half this in my car. Wink and then. I found some blended dates which again dates and water always a staple in our fridge. So you actually just make yourself. You don't buy a date syrup. No but you can absolutely us date sarah zone. That sounds really nice so easy just dates and water no measuring to just do it systems. Easy yup jason. Watch some water. Splendid up again. You're getting that whole fiber does your bowl to make no because you can see. She's got a little bit of almond butter. Left here in the bottom. It's like maybe maybe quarter of the way full maybe three tablespoons. Yeah there's like. Maybe half a cup. I would say half a cup left here in the bottom of this almond butter jar. So i'm going to start with my new may and i'm not measuring here. I'm going to say it's abou- one and a half tablespoons maybe two and then i'm going to add a slightly smaller splash of lemon. And then you don't have to do it but if you want to just put in a little bit of date syrup just to really hit that sweet note and then on in shake and it's going to need some water it's gonna be too thick with just the almond butter here but we'll shake it up a little bit. We'll bring me a little bit. I don't think we really giving. I'm there got not raining inside your okay. Great so this is really thick. We're definitely gonna wanna thin out. Yeah thin it out. Whatever consistency you prefer your dressings to be splash lotter again. There's no measuring here. We shake shake and go in your general direction. It's okay you're going to smell like land. Lemon juice kennedy. Great this man. Oh my does not look great. Okay give you some to put on the back of your hand. I think we need some steamed luciana kale right here totally. Go get that shot. Oh yeah that's that's outstanding great. Yeah it's got. The saltiness has got this hour. Got that fatty mouth. Feel and then again over broccoli over greens gonna taste. Great i just. I just can't emphasize enough. How empowering it can be utilize this quadrant. We're going to share in the show notes. Right an experiment with your sweet. You're sour your salty and your man. This has been anything else. Is i think that's it. Yeah so if. I'm gonna go make some some a huge salad for lunch but thanks for joining us today on this episode snack bowls where we really thought outside the salad dressing bottle. Just always a pleasure. Thank you when strong. Keep it plan strong.

Is It Normal Aging or Dementia in Your Loved One

"Hello and welcome to move or improve with debbie on debbie miller your host and today i wanna talk about a situation or problem or a potential problem that many adult children might be facing and that is figuring out if you're older parent is just being forgetful. As part of aging or is this dumping worse like dementia or the beginning of something. Like that. And i have asked judy cornish to be my guest. Today and judy is really an expert in. She's author two books on dementia. She's created something called the dawn d. a. w. n. method and the dawn is an acronym for dementia and alzheimer's wellbeing networks. So she really has a lot of experience and s. She's a retired elderlaw attorney and she believes that dignified dementia care. Aging in place will become available for all down the road. But right now. I wanna talk to her about what you can do as an adult to figure out you know. Is this just been for gasol or is it something more serious. So thank you so much for joining me judy. Today i appreciate your band with us. Well thank you so much for inviting me. Debbie and it's a real pleasure. I'm always happy to share anything. I've learned about dementia and alzheimer's will. Let's start off with the obvious question. What is dementia. And what is alzheimer's. So that people who are you know. There's a lot of baby boomers out. They're just now figuring out that this may be a problem with their family member so if you could define those two terms that would be great. You know yeah the. This is something that we are often confused about. In the united states we have been thinking about dementia and alzheimer's as being synonyms as referring to the same thing that dementia is from a medical perspective were talking about ongoing deterioration of memory and thinking skills and that it's a condition. It's a general term for a group of symptoms is actually not a disease and dementia is caused by various diseases. And one of those diseases is alzheimer's disease so so when you talk about dementia. We're talking about a condition that can be caused by alzheimer's it could be caused by parkinson's it could be caused by basketballer issues heart disease. It could come from any number of of sources but it's marked by by two thanks. It's deterioration of memory in thinking and attention skills but it's also ongoing interesting. So what are some of this if somebody is saying. Oh among forgot to write the check for the utility bill. What are some examples or symptoms of just normal aging that okay so they did at once big deal but if you know versus recurring issues what are some you know this is. This is what i do with the don method and My work is to to teach people how to recognize what the symptoms of dementia are. And what skills are that we lose on. We begin to experience dementia but also the schools that we heap that are not affected by dementia. And so when you're thinking about whether or not someone's experiencing dementia developing a dementia. There's a. I have shorthand and Of course it takes me my dawn. Homecare program is thirty. Six videos to help people understand the skills. Captain lost in dementia. But there's a shorthand. And this is what i i share when i speak to groups. Is that just you know if we as as people were not medical experts. Most of us don't have formal medical education and for us. We need to identify whether a loved ones experiencing dementia looking at how they are functioning and so my shorthanded. Y- that you begin looking for lost events lost vocabulary or language and lost attention span. And here's how that looks. So if i'm experiencing normal aging you will you vote. No and you will notice that compared to when i was a dell than i'm beginning to lose skills so my skills are diminishing and i'm talking about my ability to jog around the block or Do physical activities. That once i was no problem at all now. I'm aging beginning to have less physical strength and my my Abilities are beginning to diminish in that area that same for our ability to recall information This is this is just like we go through childhood adulthood and then we enter elder hood and when we were children we are becoming stronger. Were growing we're learning. And we're accumulating skills and then as adults we're using those skills and becoming adept at uni things and then in our third stage allies life where beginning to lose skills. So that's normal aging. You know i'm in my sixties. Now and i have definitely noticed that my memory is not as good. But here's the difference between normal aging and dementia regarding memory win. When i forget something my husband can jog my memory. He can a clue and it'll come back to my mind. If i've forgotten about conversation or maybe maybe possibly an event if you're really busy you can give the person who is experiencing normal aging a clue and given an additional information that memory will pop back into their minds and the reason it does is because when we are experiencing normal aging. We have trouble retrieving information as quickly but we still have memory skills. There's no change to our skill of remembering now with dementia. We lose the skills remembering not just not just instant memory. We lose skill as you if your loved. One cannot recall going for breakfast. Let's say earlier this week and you say that but but honey we we went. We went to Bloom restaurant and we side. George and an and you ordered scrambled eggs and i got nominate and if all of that information will not bring back that event to your loved ones mind then you should be concerned about dementia because of that. Would that would signify that. Would alert you to your loved. One losing skill of remembering. It's very interesting so if somebody can remember like oh yeah i yeah i remember george and they were talking about but whatever then eh gusts normal forgetfulness. It's not something to worry about right. You just suddenly go searching for a word or you see in that second indicator would be changes in language vocabulary abilities. I do this all the time now. And i kept myself and i hear you dirty. Yeah but you know why this is. It's because the longer we live the fuller. Our brains are. They are full of information full of events all of experiences full of with and and it gets it takes longer to sort through and find that information you want but if it's normal aging you can still do it so like other day. I couldn't recall the words for cantaloupe. So what did i do. I tested myself. And i said well judy that you know. That's a melon. You know many types of melon. That see i can think of. Honey do i can think of oh cantaloupe. That's right the orange one and it's like well hugh that was normal aging okay. Here's a release. Everybody take a big sigh of relief. We're all far so far. But here's the kicker when i'm out with a client i will often seek the insert emma lawyers. I'm going to be real word. You're gonna have to constantly redirect me debbie but no that's okay keep talking. I love in it. Yeah okay so demand to me. This comes from putting my law practice inside canceling my career unintentionally for over a decade and spending all my time with people who are experiencing dementia. Because i could see. I couldn't put my finger on it but i knew i was seeing a pattern. I knew wasn't people becoming tracy. And i knew these people were were experiencing emotional distress but what was happening to them. They were beginning to exhibit symptoms of some disease. It makes people crazy. And so i stuck with it until i saw it and and really. There's there's changes in memory skills. We lose memory skills. We lose rational thinking skills but not intuitive thinking and we lose it some of our attention skills and neurologist people who are experts. Tell tell us. There's five different types of attention and i saw my clients losing three types. Only but here's what it looks like in functioning like if you're with somebody and let's say you're in a coffee shop you and your wife you and your husband you and your best friend or you and your parent and there's a loud noise in captures your attention right. You hear a loud noise. Let's say a waitress drops a tray of dishes. Everybody looks when you were experiencing normal aging. Look back at your companion instantly your brain reorients you to where you are how you got there who you're with and what's going on but my clients and i would see this over and over i'd be with a client and it'd be a loud noise or bright light or somebody would interrupt grab their attention and then when they turn back to me their brain wouldn't reorient them. They would be looking at me like a deer in the headlights and and unable to place. Who is this how to get here. What are we doing here. And it's terrorist fine absolutely terrified to not be able to figure out where you are. I mean think of when you wait yeah dream. And then then your brain autopsy to the present that doesn't happen when we're experiencing dementia and so you know when i'm in a situation like that with client. I just say oh. Mary man that was allowed boy. She must have broken all those dishes. But you know. I'm so glad you invited me here. He said hey judy. Why don't we go out for coffee this morning and i said sure. Let's go down to cathy. Teesta and and i'm just so glad you're invited me. And i will chatter until i give her my name how we got there and where we are. You can see the person relaxed. But i digress. You asked me. I think you know. I think i had an uncle years ago who His wife was my mother's sister and she passed away. I all of a sudden inherited. My uncle who had no children are in relatives living. He would call me several times a day and say deb whereas and geraldine whereas and i'd have to re explain. I mean this went on for months. It was very disconcerting to him because he was living by himself. And i wasn't as close as i would've liked to have been and it is disconcerting. But he would call me three four five times a day. Where's and geraldine wears and geraldine and not have to explain to him. And you know. It's it's creepy. So let's say your adult child and see this pattern and you become you become terrified as you know what's happening with mom or dad. What can i do what at what point does become too much of a challenge and win does the i always say the trial becomes the parent because they have to take responsibility for their parent and help without care or whatever needs to be done or analyzing it You know what how do you know. And what if you have somebody in the family who says oh. You're just imagining it. This is not happening but it really is talk about those things too. Yep so you know really your ass. I'm gonna give you the legal answer with the lawyer would say and the answer is it depends so you pitch. You're you're raising your kids you've got. Maybe you're raising three four five children. Each of those children gradually reach adulthood. Now at what point does each child become an adult and depends. It depends on the child and what it depends upon is the child's accumulation of skills which provided with the ability to function safely in independently. Out in our world. Right right okay. So now we're looking at That was looking at people. Leave your childhood entering elder adulthood now. Let's consider people leaving adulthood entering elder hood and then that is beginning to be affected by this condition that takes away cognitive skills in very specific ways and so it depends on the skills that they're losing now now with the don method. What that pattern i saw. Everybody thinks dementia as being alzheimer's well that's not true. Alzheimer's is a disease that greatly affects memory skills and memories a person's ability to to use memory and prisons ability to to access their knowledge of the past so other dimensions will affect rational thinking and change thinking skills before they change memory skills and then of course every individual is going to lose cognitive skills in their own personal order or pattern. So if what this means is if we really want to know when to step in and help and who needs help then we can't. We can't just look at a blanket medical diagnosis and changes in behavior or at symptoms. Because we're talking about behaviors responses to emotions and responses to external stimuli. What we have to do is start thinking about function because think you know when we're talking about her loved ones what we want everybody to function and live safely right. Oh absolutely spelt or elder. We just want everybody living safely so your uncle there when you tell me that. He called several times a day on the phone. Wondering anti was okay now. We know that he is experiencing memory loss and loss of memory skills because if his skills were intact to his memory skills intact he would be easily able to recall the events around her death and living alone after her death and he. He wasn't so what did he do. He made a very wise decision. Call the person who could help him. I think his rational thinking skills were pretty intact. He was also going to the telephone. And this is sequence. I won't your debbie. I can't. I can't really explain to us in our half hour but if i say something it doesn't make sense people. Just go look at that at my website. And and there's lots of free resources in it'll make sense when you read it in more detail. But he's using sequencing skills in secret. Sings yields are rational thinking skills and that's part of what we lose when we lose rational thinking to dementia. So he's still using sequencing he's also using cost effect- another rational thinking skill. Because he knows that he doesn't know information if he calls you he'll get some okay also shows me that he has a totally lost memories bills because he still remembers your the source of information. Ra the joe is attention skills while we're not sure whether or not bills you're impacted but when dementia begins to take away your attention takes away our ability to direct your attention to redirect and to maintain her attention was crucial for getting tasks done now if you were to drop in at his house and i'm sure you did you drop into. Oh yeah so now you would be able to look around the house and if you saw that there was like what we do mike Would place with with my caregivers in my car company. We'd place a bowl of fresh fruit. On the counter. In plain sight this whatever indicators. There would be apples bananas oranges. At first people will see the fruit. Eat the fruit selected apple select and orange selective banana and in the trash. You'll see banana. Peels orange peels and apple cores. As time goes on people will lose knowledge of the lose. memory the lose knowledge of the past. And we know that that's happening when we see a banana with a bite. Mark on the skin put back in the bowl. donal and this is factual information. We all learn Living in this country from zero to our current ages we learned that you peel these things in the inside tastes better so when we begin to see people only apples and there's bites on oranges on their their appeals among the know starting to really lose a lot of their knowledge of the past so you could have told as you went and looked at his house whether he was using rational thinking skills using sequencing using cause and effect and then the third one there is really frustrating for caregivers is prioritization. The with dimensional will take away that rational thinking skill of being able to prioritize ideas or actions and that means people become unable to understand why something is important to do or not do so. I won't go into details. otherwise we won't get through what we want to talk about today. But there's very clear indicators easily seen if you're thinking about dementia from the perspective of function and so when we see that that's how we determine whether or loved one needs more care interesting. This is fascinating. That is the apples. Oranges and bananas idea is an easy way to gauge. What's going on but we since we are coming to the end. I would like to have you as illegal. Elder care attorney. Speak talk a little bit about What the adult child might need to do. As far as you know getting power of attorney or signing legal documents on behalf of the parent medical directive. What kinds of things need to be put in place by the adult child to protect the parent and also to be able to care for them in a capacity where they might have to be placed in memory care facility or whatever. Talk a little bit about the kinds of things that the adult child would need to talk to. An elder care attorney. Well so we we call this life documents end of life documents. We all know about wills wills and trusts so a wheel is the document that your heirs and decides who gets. What what you wish to be done with your stuff. That's the will But what's really important is for all of us before anybody starts showing signs of impairment before aging really sets in. We should all be thinking about who we want during our life to have control over our stuff. When you're no longer able to make decisions. That are a power of attorney in short. A power of attorney. Durable power of attorney is usually in almost all cases that choice tights and power of attorney. Durable power of attorney. Let somebody else make decisions about your snapped while you're alive. Your will tales people at the court to give what after you die of your stuff. Then we have the medical power of attorney and it's called by various names some of them very confusing. But it's not about your stuff it's about yourself. A medical power of attorney tells people what you want done regarding yourself your body medical decisions and it ended designates someone to do that for you and alternates In the event that you cannot make those decisions yourself and and so these documents it's really important. There's some great programs for helping people talk about what you want. Should you become incapacitated and what you want after you have died but it's really important that we don't wait until somebody is showing signs right. That's what i always tell people. Do it why you can control over it s well. Benny can communicate what they wish. And think of what they wish. That's when you start addressing this yes absolutely.

The Return of the Summer Movie Preview with Nikki Novak

"Jericho talk ricco. Welcome talk as jericho. The pod thunder and rock and roll and summer is officially ear and we are back on track. Baby summer movies back to. I know it's been well over a year since a lot of us were in the movie theater. Got to see a movie on the big screen but those days are done now as we are getting ready to go back to the theater and that's why big movies are starting to come on this summer and to celebrate that our friend nikki novak from fandango returns to talk as jericho for the fourth fifth. Time to give us the scoop of what to see and went to skip. She's got some great trivia behind the scenes info about a lot of the film's stars the directors and the potential awards. They could win. We're covering everything from zack. Snyder's army the dead wood stars. My bro and talk jerk alumni. David teesta to jordan peels latest horror offering candyman looking forward to that. Aretha franklin's bio-pic or is it biopic with with jennifer hudson to luca the latest animated movie about pick saw from pixar about to see monster friends rostock space jam with lebron james a quiet place to fast and furious nine marvel's black widow. Dc comics the suicide squad. plus nikki. And i have some influence with the long awaited highly anticipated. Peter jackson documentary the beatles. It's called get back. And it's peter's version of the fixed fifty six hours of footage that the beatles shot for let it be and has not been seen or heard from since that ill fated nineteen sixty. Nine documentary was made so. Let's get to it. It's the summer movie preview with nikki. Novak and it starts now on jericho and we'll just you always take such great notes and of course it's the return of nikki novak to talk about the the summer movie fall movie which is so exciting. Even say because there's been no movies for the last year and change. It's so crazy to think that's something we used to do on a weekly biweekly basis. I i went to one movie last year. that's it. what did you see. i saw peninsula. Which was the sequel to train to busan. Which is a korean zombie. Movie thing when you tell me about movies that that's the greatest way to kick this off by. It is funny. I actually went back to look when the last time we reported was and avengers. Endgame was just a house. Oh my gosh. that's going to be the highest grossing movie of all time or was it going to be avatar. What was it can be so crazy right. That's long it's yeah there's been no. That was the last marble. And what when was that was eighteen. Eighteen my goodness right so yeah so so just get so trained to boost on an peninsula there. These great korean zombie movies but they will literally make you cry. The the the they're so worth watching even if you're not super horror motivated because they're very emotional korean horror movies like that. There's a lot of heart to it so if you ever thought you'd try it asami movie trained to use on the one to cry i just see trade wall but When you're saying that i'm thinking because i just watched army of the dan yesterday jake brunt okay last night or maybe a huge zack snyder fan. And that made me cry i really. He did a really good job all his ex times. Really good at you saw justice league not knowing how you feel as your and than it was four. Bits too much like the soundtrack like he against the right music to get you in right mood. And then he got me in the eagles. Yes it was pretty gory. Movie was really fun like fun. Gore send vegas. We'll talk about it before. We jump in and i just want to say like it was interesting talking about. Did you go to any movies in the theater last year. At all by chance. How california right. I mean if i wanted to. There is one opportunity because christopher nolan of screening of tenant. Right you drive on a state. You have to join the vegas to see it. The thing that was weird looks so we had a day off jacksonville and because florida obviously and the theater was so clean. It was like flying toward lake. They should've done this years ago. Like everything was clean and they you know sanitize end when you leave the movie you actually take your popcorn out and you throw it away and i was like we were reliving like barbarians before like. Why did it take a pandemic to make us do this. I know he's never been so cleaned right just. I know exactly. He's going to be like that. You know moving forward and like social distancing and maps and all that kind of thing. You're going to have that for a while although you know. They're changing everything by the minutes of who california. They're changing so they're saying like indoors if you're vaccinated you don't have to be distance. Really gonna the option of theater chains to mandate was. Yeah yeah as of now with social distancing. I think fifty percent capacity but who knows in a change. So let me ask you this when you said talking about ten ten it was a big budget movie and i feel that the kind of took a risk that might not have paid off in having it. Go to the theaters because nobody was going to the movies last year. And this is what a fifty million dollar budget movie or so i think it was more like a two hundred two hundred. So how could they ever hope to recoup that. And why did they rush it was. Was there some kind of a strategy to it. allowed me. And this is conjecture. I wasn't in the room but a lot of it. Apparently was christopher. Nolan the biggest proponent of going to see things on movies string like strain. He's not the guy that you know is going to want people to see his movie and he was even willing to wait so they pushed it in push it and then i think it became sort of like the great experiment. The problem was is it then released during another wave right so the right so you know a lot of what i think gets people going to. This is mel and his collection mouth right so if you have certain states that are open and they can see it in their dig in the movie. Well you don't nationwide buzz even worldwide like social media buzz. Everybody's talking about something at the same time. They guess llosa states are like cool. Glad you enjoyed it. It's hard to get that excitement around us all right and then as they waited. I'm trying to think of how long before they released it on. Hbo masks because that's been a whole thing this year. I don't know if you're aware of is envious on warner brothers. Released day and date promise at everything. Releasing twenty twenty one was going to release on. Hbo at the at the same days in the theaters and now people are saying. Now that things are opening. Are they going to go back on that because like dunes opening later this year. That's that's like a base screen movie and they've doubled down and said no we promise you we're gonna do but moving and twenty twenty two. It's all going to go back to theatrical release and then you can see it at home i think is i just looked up ten. It said that it still made three hundred and sixty three million off of two hundred million. Which i think is still a loser. But that's not half as much as i thought they were gonna lose part of what made it. Success was the international box office in the box office normally yet for nolan's film but the fact that other countries had opened up and were going back as normal two movies really made up for that and you would probably that will be probably would've made seven eight hundred thousand million but yeah so it made less and it was a decision like heard that it was olen i. It was a lot of nolan that he really insisted. But you know what good for him. That's what he felt. That's what he was passionate amount in a sense it kind of the integrity of of wanting to preserve that because if everybody had just caved mood and go back to going to movies in a normal way you're planning and now having people like him and then tom cruise got behind the movie. I don't remember he. He showed himself when in london. The whole thing discussed this and less thing talking about kind of last year was Coming to america to sorry coming to america hate when they do that. They released it via amazon prime and apparently made money off it so that was kind of the other way to do it. Great it did great. I mean it was one of those that you know. Obviously he's a name and it's beloved franchise and people wanted to see. And i was supposed to be released by a studio then. Amazon bought it and decided to release it and it was like when you look at the nielsen charts week after week. 'cause nielsen now. Jonah's streamers it was. It was like the number one for several weeks. So you know. I think moving forward every studios going to look at every title not gonna be like all of our. Who is going to do this. I think there's gonna be some there. Obviously a marvel's you know like superhero movies are going to go to theater. You're not going to see them at home for a certain window but then other ones like that like do you really need to go see the screen or you know is there a great streaming option where it could do really well. The whole big question though is subscribers like or how are they making their money back and they've gotta have this subscriptions up in order for them to really make money right kong vs godzilla. Did that as well. Right dow did great. I think it did over five to forty eight million which was a huge sign of you know right movie right time. The movie got the big screen right and it exceeded expectations and i think a lot of students were looking in that movie. We'll how's that gonna do not How whether it's going to go back to the theater in america but over in china and japan and even australia. They're having record numbers of people going to theater. Post hand on an even bigger numbers than pre pandemic. So i think people are -ticipant eating and who knows what's going to happen. He's always change changes but they're dissipating that we're going to go back more than ever because now you're like okay for you know for a couple of years. It was like you know. I like to just netflix than stay at home watch. Now it's like. Oh my gosh and miss going to the movies miss that feeling fun right let you go your own realize how much i miss this cool to be immersed in it. So yeah i remember. I remember talking to my dad about this when vcr's first came out knows like you know. Is this gonna kill the movie theaters. Like people love the experience of going out and go into the theater. That will never change. And i think that fits again here. We are twenty twenty almost forty years later and that addict is still the same and also now streaming people are saying is going to be streaming or theaters. now we realize they can co-exist feed off each other. 'cause when you look at what disney is doing disney marvel vision. Winter soldier are spin offs of marvel. Movies that are now tv series that kinda get people excited niclas but then because then once. You've seen that. You gotta go see the next marvel movie in theaters so he can work on ways and i just want good. Content is good content and his people. Don't have a limit to how much you know. It's not like they're going to be like oh just want there's so much out there but it seems good. Go see it whether it's the theater when seeking all out. They're not choosing between the two. They want both army of the dead because it was made for net flicks and not the theaters zack. Snyder directed david. Teased is in at one of the first summer releases of seeing that. It's great. we'll talk more about it. But i want to talk about the return of another fun summer activity barbecuing with friends. Now that we can get back together with larger groups of friends and family why not celebrate with a little backyard barbecue featuring one of my favorite father's day gifts and into my kids omaha steaks i love to give stakes them and i'm going to spread the love.

The dave is that we're going army and that was always supposed to be made for netflix. This is not a move that was supposed to be to the theaters transferred to net flicks. Is it right. That was snyder directly. Making a movie for nets likes wrong. I didn't do my research. On far as i know it was so at that just shows that netflix's putting in these huge hundred million dollar budget to make their own movies for their own netflix's studio right right. They just released their summer slate and they sort of made this promise to fans in twenty twenty one day. We're gonna have a new release every week and they whether it's whether it's a series or whether it's movie they have something releasing every week what's interesting about what they do is. They actually released in theaters a week before a really so i think they are now experimenting with the idea of what we have. These big movies that were making ourselves. We're not acquiring them big names. Should we try to theatrical model and has stuff go or not set our consumer where they're going to be like well hold on. I subscribe to netflix. Been been loyal. Now you're telling me. I gotta go see in the theater but it was only a week so i think it was those people who are zack. Snyder fans zombie. Movies was a big. You know big grand movie that a lot of warlike. What a week earlier and seed in the theater. Because i want to have that experience. And i'll probably watch it again on netflix week later. So it's not like it was like three months into theater before people in are starting to experiment with that the model and they don't see that being a problem anyways if you subscribe netflix's that's probably because you wanna watch it in the confines comforts of your own home. You're not so worried about the fact. That only i can watch. This movie is more like. I don't have to go out to do it so if you want to go see it in the theater. Go for who cares. I mean i could see. That doesn't bother me. I think a lot of people do net distance from reviewing netflix's movies quite often I think a lot of people what they do not necessarily seek out a move your net flex. Occasionally they will be willing. Oh i heard about this. we'll just turn it on. They see the new releases and they watch know what i mean and they just use the channel surf like they just surf through netflix's and they see a new like amy adams movie called women in the woman in the window. That came out of a hitchcock in a couple of weeks ago or last week and it wasn't a great movie but it was number one. Because why was the new thing annapolis nine on their home page and they turn it around but movies like army cadet that has level legitimate fan base will people will seek out that title grassing theater so well and his last that he did the remake for dawn of the dead which was amazing. It's one of my favorite movies even more so than the original dawn of the dead. So i think zack snyder zombie. Movie very much interested in seeing totally totally and he said this. A sequel are arming. The damage they know is its own thing but it really was like i. I actually watched it. They sent me a screener. And i watched it at home and i was thinking watching it like. I'm kind of doing this movie disservice by watching it at home. Because the spectacle of it and like i don't know if you saw a trailer thousand in vegas and you know the soundtrack with Dolby that's the other thing that we're seeing is that when people are going back. They're going back they wanted. They're seeking out. Link premiums theaters will be sound. The look if i'm going to be at home. I want it to be as opposite to being at home all all. Spend the extra money to be like in a coup theater. We'll send them people are booking these private watch parties where you can pick out a whole theater for like twenty people. Yeah smart superfund to like you. You know like two hundred starts out with two hundred bucks that like twenty people chip in and there you go to the bar and have have that order dinner now. It's a great night out but we'll see if it can be lucrative for movie theaters before because you know. Twenty people in the rate for these multiplexes have all these tiny little theaters. Keebler invoking up all the big premium theaters. They got these little ones. That are sorta the allergies. So it's a perfect thing right now woolsey so yes so armee of the dead. I'm going to just go each movie. This one interests me. And i'm looking forward to seeing this and you've already seen it earning. It's already in the theaters now. Okay but it's now it. Now it's on netflix. See zombies big. Dave or that's a good. That's a good mix. I'm i'm going for that. One zach snyder. So i'm in for that a lot of kick ass you like you. His snyder always has it his movies to always says kick ass women in their mataro is under nineteen entira. Thirteen taro. that took over for chris. Here's really cool thing about this movie. I didn't even realize when i watched it and read it afterwards Kristalina on you know. He had that whole he had like some. I think sexual harassment issue or something like that. He was actually in the film rolling removed him and charo film all her scenes opposite. Nobody and they digitally put her in the movie. A you would never know. And she was actually my favorite character. I was like opposite attendance. Fall in all right so that one is the theaters now but also in may twenty-first first netflix flicks Next big one. That was just a couple of them. Crew ella which is may twenty eighth disney. Of course. Tom krill the ninety nine. One hundred one asians cj. I'm telling you. I even though this is kind of set in the fashion world and you know i used to be enough business excited about this and was kind of like it is thomson kinda go to on you. Know it's like crew eligibile who glenn close played in her last live action hundred one donations. It's her prequel. Is her origin story. How she became evil where she came from. And i was like you know is probably not for me even though it would sound like would be me right like irl lead emma stone la la land hoping but it was amazing sleeper. Hit of the summer. I love this movie. And craig the less the if this tells you anything. If you'll saw i tanya tanya lerman course those great he's also directing a tommy lee in pamela anderson series. Okay on mike tyson series so he kinda gets the hump behind the lake infamous and notorious and they kind of like the the evil and he puts them as the lead right so so well even with disney. I actually talked about moving. He told me that the disney executives said we disney tight relieve wanted to feel like there was a a a disney movie or somebody. Just got to rebel against all the disney tropes stereotypes. This is that movie and he said we would show them stock that we were sure they were going to be like no. We can't put movies on disney ass and they really go for it so he kinda has an edge to it and it's but it still feels like an is also we haven't been in the theater anything kinda has that spectacle feeling like. Aw they spend money on if it almost looks like a tim burton movie just the character and the the field at the vibe of it. Wait wait in huge. Tim burton fan. And i loved it. So yeah it definitely has that that. I think they've been doing a great job with their live action. Like i love the latin because i think they got the right direction they got the i ritchie. Who's kind of role. Kind of cool directory is married from him but then it works. You know. I will see this only because you recommended it but you know what bothers me about this movie too. Many emma's i don't like it. Emma stone emma thompson i gotta deal with emma blunt in a another movie. I told you wrong. Yeah and by the way. I interviewed that. You see other episode also so it was very weird because it was buying zoom. And you can't tell when you're looking at one so emma stone how about this. How do you feel about. It's like it's like when we're in elementary school. And you had to people with the same name. Emma s an mit. And you'll always be cooler. Why does if you weren't rains.

Take control of your finances and start saving it. True bill dot com slash jericho. That's true bill dot com slash jericho so a one that i'm really looking forward to You could tell you know movies. I like is a quiet place which is a sequel to this a movie. That came out a few years ago. by john brzezinski. Which the idea is you have to stay completely quiet because aliens have come to take over the planet and if you make a noise they're gonna get you right. They have supersensitive hearing at so. It was like or anything. Didn't see it. i mean. I'm sure a lot of people listening have seen it because it it was. It was a huge sleeper. Hit like he was made for hardly any money. John krasinski his first time directing things correcting you wrote a two right. Yeah so thank goodness. He came back. He wrote the seagull. He directed the sequel. It's not like he pass it off to anybody else then again. Why is emily blunt is in it. So there you go. I didn't know that. Ya and i know this young actor who's been in so much you actually google. You see his resume. And i think he's only fifteen as a kid and iggy now so yes so this is the follow up to it. And it's basically place exactly which i seek when what they make. I think this is a couple of years after. But i like it when they just pick up with the action. They don't like at the beginning this much time later. And here's what's been happening. They just go right into it. Like it's from moment one and it was kind of like the first one right. We always pulled into it and what was cool about that movie and what people talked about with. That movie was when it came out. You go to the theater in. Everybody would be quiet. They're not trying to slurp on their diet. Coke coke collect thing and say a sequels amazing like the sequels really really. What what i liked about it too is the fact that i haven't seen it just watching. The trailer is that you see the the monsters a lot. More the first one who's kind of hidden and they came out with this one at least the way. The trailer is showing you just monster monster mosser and there's such creepy effects are so great. I just was thinking. Like oh. I automatically wanted to see it but even wanted to see it more after seeing the trailer and that's kind of what this movie is like. The first one took place in their home and then in this line is sort of parley at home but some of the family goes out into the world because they think that they can you know raising way but the the that you saw the original was the tip of the iceberg. Which do this with sequels with drastic parking. That when you do a sequel don't do the version. No and you know like like i give this always gives us example like sore. The first war. I like the second was terrible. Were called the dark world Dark and then they just turned it on his side of mute so fawning over the top please you do seek. Will you give us a monster in the person guinness thousand monsters and the best example is alien and aliens one and then aliens is frigging thousands of things. And that's why it's so great. Take this colonel idea. Just go over the top with it. And that's what people wanna see. More aren't said franken and it reminds me because kidding it must be i think here in the states is freaking but maybe with our access those frigging fricken thing then. Yeah yeah they do well and was cool is that the students feel confident enough about the box office. And they're putting out to movies on the same weekend so memorial weekend will be quiet place to versus gala. Which is the first time we'd seen that in probably a year and a half which is great. Yeah this is the first time. And then the fallen june fourth is another sequel. To a huge franchise the conjuring the devil made me do it and once again talking about the warren's who actually had the nephew of the warrants on talk jericho and he he collects strange haunted artifacts really. It has them all on his house and the really creepy artifacts is a kind of like what they did is they relate demon knowledge smut. Yes basically so ed worn passed away years ago. I think like in the late seventies early eighties but lorraine just recently passed away but she had really bad dementia for the last ten fifteen years so their whole collection. I have to go back and remember. The guy's name was their whole collection went to their nephew and had all in his house as a place kind of up in rhode island near providence. And i went there. And it's like. Oh my gosh so weird. So many creepy dolls and paintings in ancient artifacts and that sort of thing so movies is they end every movie with whatever artifacts whatever was haunting the house are haunting them whether it was a hand whenever. Bring into their artifact room. So that's quite a thing to inherit who that i would be just like. Give me the joe from all this. You want any creepy stuff in my house. Thank you very much. He's literally in also may do this a little bit nuts man down for that unless i was making money off in charging admission like museum and i think he had some kind of a show like where you could see all the stuff we talked about it but but the movie that we're talking about is is the devil made me do it. Which is our of the haunted house realm and talking about kind of demonic possession out in the wild so to speak correct. Yeah your love it yes. So this is the eighth. In the franchise like they have the anonymity. Well now lying grownup lawyers of is the same director of july runa. And it's now they're going out of the haunted house they were like we're gonna jump to the eighties and it's based on a real life case the warrant did where it was the first time in. Us history that summoned used demon possession as defense so he was up for murder is this guy and his girlfriend's brother was apparently possessed. And you was this kid. And so they did this actresses them and during the actresses them. The guy said to to the demon. Go into my body. Don't her harm this poor kid anymore. And the demon possessed him. He then murdered somebody now and his defense in real life was the devil made me do it. And that's why they use this term in the title of the movie. But i really liked this length. The first one you want you always like the first one a franchise right. The first was rate. I love the second one because it was kind of more of the same house. If your intellect. I think the inspiration from this movie. There's definitely throwbacks of the exorcist throwback tonight in st or to like is but i also like that. There's like an x. Files vibe to it where. They're kind of like working with police in the police in this actually happened in the eighties replaced with start to use psychics in that. Help himself crimes. They bring in a rain warrants. And so i really. I i i think this might have been my favorite of the really by the hothouse. Things makes me laugh like he gets a little stupid. Air is an awesome around the corner but this was actually And it's jar like telling you like there's starting on it not such as like a haunted scary twisted okay works. I'll just leave it at that. So yeah i find when you have a movie like you said if there's eight of these things that you're not going to have to up the ante but not just doing more of the same kind of switch it up a bit so i'm excited to see this one too because i was getting a little bit sick of houses. I want out of the house. You know yeah and james warren who produce you know for directed the first two. He's now directing acrimony to the first command announcing segment so he didn't direct this one but he produced did it and i just talked to cast. Actually i did press conference from the movie for one and others and You know what was cool about it is like you know. Sometimes you talk to people and there's been like twelve thousand sequels like you say you feel like they're glazed over there in washington about this franchise like i can. I can see all of this. Is james wednesday. They're like taking care of the baby. You know like really hearing much about the franchise because by the way. I think it's the second biggest horror franchise of all time behind godzilla like really billions of josh. And you look at mrs wild. Wanna get into her as producer. I think they've spent budget wise one hundred two hundred million as made billions off of this. Cns the secret is. That goes back to what i always tell you. Nikki how. I'm not a big fan of these big budget. Hollywood movies. I like these type of movies. You get a budget especially especially back but now it's probably four or five million dollars. They're making hundred and fifty two hundred. That's that's where we make the big bucks. Yeah terminal you how you felt about award season if there was any. 'cause you always liked was johns. Did you catch. I didn't like the award season this year. Because there wasn't any movies that i really wanted to see and because i'm part of sag i get all the movies in the mail on dvd which who still watches dvd's but it was cool. I appreciate it but there was literally nothing that i really wanted to see. And then i didn't bother watching the awards either and it seemed like i wasn't the only one. A lot of people were kind of against the awards this year or just not wanting to watch it and he loves invitation was really interesting. Even the grammys was down kind of made it feel lie. Then i'm like well people to two grammys. Because maybe they're not invested in the movies as much this year because there weren't any like big blockbusters black panther nominated or anything but you know the grammy's tune into because live performances in the hat their johnson Even students that so. I think it's an anomaly. But i i think it was top in their words court kind of like the mix of films that you see another years where this year. It felt very indie. It was only to just. I think there's so much politics this year. Just being barraged with we're all just getting barraged by both sides of the coin. I think maybe that people just they were very political to and i think people just didn't wanna get involved in it this year. I just had that feeling too especially osters. So he's very political and i think people just like there's no movies wanna see. We notice to be political. Skip it this year. So i think that might have been a factor as well personally. Even though i don't think a lot of speeches this year were all 'cause they kinda shot it in a different way and instead the oscars what they did and i didn't like the ceremony at all but when they did that i kind of appreciate it. I just think the way they shot it was wrong. Was they told people. We don't want sieges The no one knows we want. We want you to tell story kinda like how wrestle business or something personal something that means something to you and look. I was kind of interesting. But i think there's a time and place i don't think the oscars that time or place you know. I think they have tough too. Because they didn't have to start our that they normally do just because the to the films that were nominated right exam movie stars there that the normally do they have great actors. Don't get me wrong. It's great films a couple. That were my favorites And not the one. That one wasn't my favorite. But you know. I think he will also tune in for the red carpet. Itunes for the circumstance of course and those moments where you see people interacting you know even the golden globes Over issues right now but when we cut commercial and you see like we in order to carry with brad pitt like having it up and whatever you know so i he start missing that spontaneous glamorous fun elements would did win best picture this year or less. You nomad land. The francis norman movie with Gotcha yeah it wasn't wasn't wasn't insane but it was good okay. Another one looks fun. Is the man's wife's bodyguard before we talk about that one ryan reynolds again whether the seat theaters. Let me tell you what it is. Worth the price of admission. That's anything you purchase from.

Stephen singer dot com Another one looks pretty funny in Another sequel is the hit man's wife's bodyguard gray trailer. I mean ryan reynolds. You can tell. He's really found his footing with after the dead pool. And kind of that kind of wacky vulgar humor but kind of no filter humor and baird was samuel jackson and of course selma hayek. This looks like a fun to me. Yes this is the sequel. Today hitman bodyguard twice are and. I think it's just chemistry. It's like first of all summer. Hayek is you've ever interviewed her talk to her. Met her love her lover lover. She has so much energy she never comes off and she's married to like a gazillion. Eric right the come off like a little removed. Around so fabulous. She's that girl walk and she's like girl and she's talking to that she's cool and all of that energy she brings it out roll like she plays samuel jackson's whites and then ryan reynolds like you said like he has to movies Free guy But yeah he just he kinda can just throw stuff away like he'll joke in whenever and that's kind of what is you places. Bodyguard is a follow up. And i guess in this one. He's on sabbatical. He's not you need time off in his firms like eating time off. You've been you know. Sit you somewhere any sitting there to quits. His headphones on and then some high scherzer comes in and saves him from like an assassination attempt or something and then he gets sucked back into it. So yeah just a fun. Popcorn movie with fine performances doesn't take itself seriously at all you know who's like that to the opposite of some hack for me so fear of her girl. I went to the premiere of jay and silent. Bob review which i was in and i was talking to her husband. Joe and she did Didn't even say hi so's okay. I'll keep that up here. Keep it in my little a filing cabinet. I'd look at new her back in the day when she was a model and a model oil while and she was dating a guy that was friends with my wife time so we hung out quite a bit and you know she was like kind of a little bit of star like in south america. She was like that bathing suit. Right model. But like i was probably. We didn't go for the same jobs like we have different. Virginia body types right. yeah. But i love her. Because i don't know. I just love her persona. Maybe she was just having a bad day now. But i mean hugely surprised me. I'll just you know the biggest disappointments free but the hit man's waste bodyguard is that the bodyguard wasn't played by kevin costner. He needs to wait. And you are cameos in this one. He's not wanted the cameos now. Hello i'm telling you is of course. Someone's body morgan. Freeman yano if all of a sudden came and started seeing. I will always love you. That could be for the hip man's bodyguards bodyguard for the for the three cool in that one speaking of three times up by three and we got fast and furious nine zero nine of these things already and i don't even that countertops not cause a big rift between the between the cast members. Hobson show that rock kind of went out on his own and the rest of the cast was angry about that. That's sort of the rumors that the two leads are. Actually else's you got. I'm sorry but you got vin diesel and you got a rock onset. I mean who's top dog well and so then rock goes and makes and shah and then vin diesel brings john cena. That's a little bit of a you know. Hey all right. Let's do this year's been so about this situation is when you talk about loving people in talking to people might choose beaver people to talk to you interview hands down our vin diesel in iraq for those are my two favorite people visits you guys that behind the scenes you walk in. They remember your name view extra time they go the extra mile to treat everybody. Well at least press you know like fans or just like vin. I like has new interview. Him he's kinda lets it all hang out. He's great he's off the cost and the rock has just that pole lights. Gentlemen consummate professional. Yeah so i love them. Both actually really led talks. Shaw really liked looking forward to the next one will yes. This is fast. If you're is nine and people who remember like han character. Han play by sankei. Hang who supposedly died us back and then yeah now you have john. John is playing john. Toronto which is by remains easels loss brother. And there's no of loss cover kind of rivals and his brother yeah. I'm actually going to see this movie on monday. I haven't seen it yet. But i heard like they've always kind of been threatening. They're going to go to outer space. Because like what else can. They won't be rocket launcher on on. This is when fast and furious nine officially jumps the shark if they go to space much like jason ten friday thirteenth barten- they said jason space or the worst episodes of the franchise. Don't go to space. But what i heard is that this is so over the top. So it's already always been t t t t with a rocket launcher well and i think to the fact that han han died and came back. That's obviously a homage to han solo. Who died and came back after the end of empire strikes back right. These are fast and furious. Even other is immoral movie coming out this summer. I think that's going to be the big box office of the summer. I think people aren't waiting to even it's cheesy. They're gonna be like. That's what i need in my life. I need some cheese and some gorn nine of them. Of course it's going to be hit my goodness we're going to talk briefly about luca animated family movie about a boy and the italian rivera. Who hides a secret with his best friend. You're like here's a guy i was like. What are they like rabbits or mouse or whatever. But they're both monsters. That's my jam. I love sea monsters. I have a lot of sponsor tattooed on my arm right there. You're starting you look how nickname you do. And then i also want you to sing the suzanne vega song. Whenever you thinking about this. My name is luka. I live on the second floor. That should be the theme of this movie. He yes pixar has pace are ever really gone wrong. No i think not so. This one is set in revere story. I've actually never been jealous of an animated character before. I'm actually jealous. Luca because he is a seamaster con. Want to be a mermaid and so in he gets to spend the summer in the ramiro. Which probably won't say coming of age story. But you know it's like even they don't hook you with the idea of it you know you're going to see it in no you're gonna end up loving it because it's pixar needle mess up. They do everything right. So yeah this one to me. Because i loved if you like moana which i love. I think it has that vibe where it's lisette and you're gonna like the culture of at all. The pizza of this does the whole thing. Let's really okay. i'll give it do because they're see monsters z. Monsters young wasn't even although i do. Have this weird premonition. that i'm going to be the first person who ever dies by getting eaten by sea monster. And it's all documented like somebody films it on their own and you actually see it. Come out and get me longest monster. And i'm still. Let's so if i ever die forget eaten by a seamaster monster. I'm calling it right now. So we had from ignition at this is going to have. This kid really scared to swim in the lake. Sometimes those things see much is to be ready. And i'm not talking about a shark or an allegation talking about plsy sore from three hundred eighty one way to go right. Why at least always be famous for it right like we rediscovered plenty of plenty at sorace whatever it is winding it. Sounds like a fantastic way to go. Not for many many years but wiles premonition. The i'm not an alligator speaking of wild traditions terrible segue black widow scarlett johansson and florence. Pugh love that name. The first marvel movie in over a year and a half and people are waiting for these things. People have been devouring these marvel movies all pandemic. 'cause there's literally the thirty of them at this point in time and they're all great if you like one you like them all except with thor to according to you and i do dig a little bit of four. I love a little four. I think the word is like just eric. The actor is thorn this one or the scarlet black widow now now because this is kind of like scarlett. Johansson's origin is asked. Her the events of captain america's civil war and it's kind of before she became adventure. It's it's it's horror origin story for anybody who knows what happened to were an end game. And if you haven't seen in game even though it's the highest grossing horse highest frozen mickey going back for movie of all time right. Something happens to her character so it could only be a prequel so Yes so this is kind of like how she became. She training year she was a black widow her training how she came as kicked. What is she was was pew. Who is a great actress has a massive following place. Her not her biological sister. David harbour who plays Who's in stranger. Things plays her not her again her mileage father but her mentor and rachel weiss in it and i wasn't you know like i liked the character and i'm excited about it. A what really sold me was the last trailer that played during the tv awards where it looks like mission impossible movie awhile. Super high action the action lucy craft edible and people were saying like. Oh my gosh this is giving like tom cruise run for his money so i always answered that by to it. It looks really cool and you know she's they've been talking about having care having her own. Be for a long time so and yeah i. I marvel movie since i am game. Well she's also one of the biggest stars in the world too so i think it's going to do great box office combination of all those things have definitely one of the best characters in the in the moral of the universe in my opinion. Yeah poke and these and yet again. We're talking on that slate of those good people. You talk to people when you talk to them in person. She's go people she's a nice. Then we will give two thumbs up to black widow. I'll be here's another strange one. I saw the original space. Jam starring michael jordan from nineteen ninety or. Something like this and six. Is that what it was. Oh my gosh thought. It was older than that. This is a new one with lebron. James is coming out now and listen those looney tunes whacky. You never know what they're going to be up to bugs and bugs in the gang and lebron james. What could go wrong with this one. This is what i'm saying number one. You can act which is insane. Because he's so talented at everything. He does a obviously basketball but the fact that he came out and trade years ago when people like james like illegal bureau commercial or something if they have one line in your so wouldn't they can't act at all and and i think it was like one of those movies too because it comes out july scene where like people are ready for this fun campy and yeah it's a continuations you're gonna want like love the original the this own fans you choose fans in. He's playing himself read. Plays in this mega basketball game. Kind of half animated athens south of all the looney tunes against these aliens to save the world. What could it ever go wrong with him. I want i want one person in the world to claim that they're og space jam fan. I'm an old geo. are you know gene. And i know what. I wouldn't call myself an og for space jam. I was a fan but like a gangster so gangsters when it comes to space jam. Sure i'm sure they're probably there. Might be there. Might be somewhere stands or lewis. You fans all right. Let's go on to another one that you said it might be a little bit campy and this one. We've been waiting for for a while. I remember. I remember when this one got postponed last year. I was thinking really postponing this movie. For a year talking with jungle cruise once again with the aforementioned rock just thinking how how ridiculous that seemed at the time that she would postpone a movie for a year but that was the became the norm. After that it's like oh my gosh is it. It's like the stones postponing a year. Motley crue def leppard no postponing for another year. It was so mind boggling to think but now july twenty eighth jungle cruise is coming out and it seems so far away and now joey off exactly yeah jungle. Russo young weirdly. This was when i was excited about the gecko and i think some people were like. Why don't they just drop last. But i you know made to waiting advocate because now again it's like these can't be fun. Movies like jungle cruise like space. Jam that you're like. I can't wait to go and see this and just how fun and just like you know. Just be totally entertained. So yes based on which. I'm revisiting my child york. I think everybody has their life favorites. Zero right is jungle cruise like growing up in canada and beyond this vote monster will pop up. There's no jungles around lake ontario. I know that but yeah. So it's basically based on the ride and play some riverboat captain. Emily blunt who is also in quiet place to plays this scientists who hires him to take her deep into the amazon. Because she thinks that there is She's a scientist and she heard that there is. I think a stone or something there that has healing properties and of course they gotta face the to get there and then there's like a competing. German team is trying to get there i. It's just gonna be look. They had me. When i saw the rock little sailor cap shirt and then ambling glenn so likable all like a disney fun. Like wait for it on movie. My favorite disney ride was pirates of the caribbean for real. Yeah that was my numerous too so they did a great job with that movie. I i gotta be. I didn't really dig this trailer too much trailers. They don't really tell me what happens or what's going on but it's the rock so it's always good also another thing like i don't like the fact this. Emily blunt shows up in two big blockbuster movies that land because they were meant to come out. They were both both mentioned about last year. She's in demand the more really like her. But you know i i. I'm very curious to see how visit i actually think it could be a sleeper. I think it could be sleeper. Because i just saw. I think they just released a new trailer. Oh yeah then. I got to see the new trailer because this this one didn't really convinced me but like i said we'll have to wait and see but one trailer that i love suicide squads. Let's talk about that movie and what to expect from it but first a quick. Thank you to geico for making our summer movie preview. possible.

Let's geico dot com. One trail that i loved was suicide squad which i thought was the name of the first movie but it wasn't called suicide squad. I was suicide squad and this is suit. Come on really. You're going to do that to us. Now here's what i want. I want all sequels to just have a number number three number four number five. They'll even you love a movie on conjuring temple do it semi colon and then there's a whole thing right to recall movies from like their library. Which was. I can't remember just number please. Just it's like when i was in. There is the world championship and the world heavyweight championship. depending if you're on smackdown iran. it's like. I don't know which one is which they're both the world championship. This is the world average so this is suicide squad and the suicide squad right. That's making a necessarily difficult for us. Nikki a lot. It's a lot to deal with right. I mean come on making several arrests. The yet i agree with you. This looks. don't do anything's kind of guardians of the galaxy. It look straight and let me say this before john. Cena has done a great job in his acting career. Because this is the real john cena. He's very droll. he's very sarcastic and when he talks about whatever the guy's name that he plays time with dick beach or something like that or the all the dicks on the beach or something that was classic scene. That was hilarious. Yeah yeah no i agree. He's just called the peacemaker but he's the guy he calls himself. The should be something like the cheesy captain. America or the like over the top captain marilyn is to be the good guy but he's kind of a piece of crap and so it sounds like he's kind must ease the crap that you know what i mean like he right. He's almost the of the joke. He's so sincere. But people are. He's like a laughingstock. Kind of thing. I think that works likely plays into that. Like you said that side but yet so it's margot robbie is back someone ashes back joel candidate is back. Who's great actor pete. Davidson is being added to the cast. Which is an interesting choice. Idris elba is being added to the cast. Michael rooker a great. But it's also james gun brought him over from guardians galaxy. James did garden galaxy. Wanted to write. He was So now he's doing garden guardians of the osce three but in the interim he did the suicide. What has that by where it has like when when guardians came out and it was like rocket grew. You're like these creatures that like in theory work but it was rated thing so now this one has king shark which is like this half man half shark speaking of sea creatures voiced by Stallone which is great loan which is awesome. And you're gonna have like a giant starfish for people of the trailers googling. See what we're talking about but it's going to but it's it's so quirky and has that five like i. I think he's going to be amazing. I am hoping it's going to be on this. Do stuff like that right. The fact that look the guy's name the fact that james gunn is doing guardians and suicide squad was a just just we did star wars and star trek. No licit it. You mean i'm the guy's name saw just we'd what's the guy's name face. I can see his family. Look it up right now since i have this On my tip of my toes. But i don't like these guys when they do both movies because then it's like well that's kind of not fair pick one and stick with it right or are we allowed to do this now. I i think it's kind of that. I mean look. You're you're you're talking about dc oh abrahams as we're talking about jj like. Oh my gosh talk about smart. Maisy man who gosh. He's he's been a part of so many big projects that so So james and the fact that he's doing dc marble kudos to handwrite. Like you can do both if you can hire rivals studios good for you. Okay with that. I came within you know. I think they're just. They're so different in in suicide reviews. I don't think he really loved it. And so the fact that he's not even though this is a sequel. It's kind of an offshoot. It's going to be its own thing and it's going to have a longer humor. Allow her quirkiness. I the you'll make it like. He'll make it sing. You know who make it really. Work is will smith in this one. He's not in this one. What they we're going to do. I don't think he couldn't do it. schedule-wise so they're setting up the potential instead of having the interest allah character takeover. They're having him not using curator and they're setting it up. So wilson could possibly return okay in another yeah Here's an interesting one of a big fan of these. Is it 'bio-pics or by optics itself. Funny that you said that because you and i met when i was young hollywood and by is said biopic when i interviewed somebody and people tore me apart on youtube. At what is she talking about. And we seem. I think we say by thinking canada. So your file. Because now i always say bye okay but i must want bio pic reminds me of bio dome starring. Pauly shore kademi. All right so i like these bio pics love the james brown one. Of course obviously the johnny cash This one is respect about aretha. Franklin and starring jennifer hudson. That's like the greatest casting ever like as soon as jennifer like the perfect person for this. And what else did he say. Jennifer hudson plays the franklin aretha cat kind of has a in in everything before she passed. She wasn't involved in the film. You know getting off the ground and giving the okay of course. Of course you're gonna say yes. Please jennifer nobody else can sing my songs but you also. She signed off on it so retha signed off on this before she passed away. Nice yeah yeah and you know. I think it's interesting that it's being released in august is i would have thought. And it's it's it's changing now but you're positioning somebody from academy award or potentially to win for best actress That usually you'll release in late. September october november. It's not always the case now. Now it's changing. But i'm hearing that. This is more like a crowd pleaser that you'll be nominated for sure but i'm hearing that this has that and if you watch the trailer it really has that feel like the channels. Might you know that chills aaron. My arms stood up watching it. It's really good. And then we have forced whitaker playing her dad marlon wayans lays her real life for husband's And manager. there's always that story right about the manager that mary the manager in their bad news or whatever it is like a turner story acme. Well we know that these that we know that the oscars love these movies because ramya malik won a academy award for playing freddie mercury or at least nominated whatever the movie one or something. He'll okay one low but he won the movie in win the author divestiture in arizona. Only thing. I don't like about this respect trailer. Yeah i get it. She sings respect. That's all they play over again. Respect just little bit of story of a woman coming drawn respect just a man who opposed her respect just like put on some thinker freeway of love or any of these other songs that she sang in there. I get called respect. Quit heading me over the head with the respect branch. I got nothing. I'm gonna just greenhouse. You're just the trailer we're gonna give good moments couple more left here. Free guy with Once again same ruled emily blunt. Do we need another ryan reynolds here. This is scenery chewing his way to a main event a main main leading man status but he plays a guy who's in a video game and tries to make itself the hero so you can save the game if it's shut down. Yeah so he's basically this dude and he puts on the outfit and they show us jovan. It's always the same outfit. And his duty goes works in a bank and then you realize is he gets caught up in like but his everyday life is like people getting shot rollover then they come back to live and he's that guy that he's not a player in the video game. You're a player but you see all these people background. He's got any video games like hold on. I'm going to become relating the a hero in a video game. And then he finds out that the people are trying to shut down the video games so he has to make the game and saying the game and save his friends in the world. I don't know. I think it's cute. And he again. And he just kinda feel the improv when he's such a great improper in the knicks. It isn't worth i in other actor might not. What are the chances that he pulls a hugh grant or vince. Vaughn and plays the exact same character in this movie that he plays in every other movie on. Now there's a chance very you know. Oh always always this one really interesting. Because i become a big fan of jordan peels horror movies. I love the fact that he focuses on african americans the movies which is such a dumb point but it's so vowed has never been african american stars in horror movies i that was one of his big reasons why he did get out and he did us and here. He is with one of the greatest. I guess killers and movies ever. That was played by the by the great tony. Todd for years candyman. Yes you had this. Listen like this great. Because this is the perfect jordan. Peele joint with with candyman. Who was an african american horror. Movie killer is so perfect. And what jordan. Peele does so. Well is the marketing of movies. Because you think about get our in everybody you know you have that injury in your head right of get out and that it also had a social message but then i'm us with the scissors. I sort of imagery with the scissors. That an music. He always has a really cool soundtrack and and it becomes a thing like pop culture thing where everybody talked about scissors. Movie came out and then this time around because it's candy man what brings out the candy man from evil john. The previous films is looking in the mirror and saying candyman five times. And so you not. You're going to have people joking about that and doing it on their social media. And you know it's going to be one of those talking points like will you say candyman five times yahya abdul mateen. Who is the star. Also exciting to me because he is a nominal And but he's not. Here's the thing jordan. Peele is not directing it. He is producing and writing it. But he's not directing this lines via dacosta this directing it so you know his fingerprints are gonna be all over it though. I mean look at it. Feels like jordan peele. So yeah i just love. I love the like once again. It's it's kind of the cheesy horror movie trope. It's not cheesy and the trailer. Will they do say it. Five girls in the ladies bathroom set. And then you know wacky nece ensues as they're all murdered so i'm really excited about this one like i said i love. Jordan peels movies and to me. This is a pleasant surprise. Because as you know nikki i don't follow along with anything that's going on. Let's say talk to you soon as soon as i saw this. This is great. I can't wait to go and ask talking to you because we can be frank but number two. I'd rather be chris. But i always get your. I always get your take on things. Because i'm always trace my send you these long less like westlands. You're going to be excited about because it's your unpredictable which i love. I kind of know what your vibe is. But i ain't Users bigger ones were parking ones. I never you're gonna be like. Oh my gosh. i'm so excited about this. And i can yes. I thought this might be one. But i'm happy to know who you are. And there's ones that. I kind of put in my like okay. I'll i'll wanna see us in the theater possible but for me to spending so much time on planes especially now that we're going to be going. I'll be traveling cross country back to la quite a bit going overseas. God willing soon. I always have my airplane movies. For example one of my favorites of all time was baby driver. I really had no real interest in seeing the theater. But i kinda wanted to see it. I watch the planet watched it two times there because it was so great. So i'm i'm sure some of these will fit that category as well. Yeah that's richard also has a movie coming out this summer smaller movie which i didn't put on the list but yeah i'll text you after you can check it out and two more films to talk about one super excited about one that have to just say because we're gonna laugh us up. I i wanna leave. Let's the one that gave old m night shamma. Ding dong wonder. If this jared hobie watched that you're so i okay so i'm like most the world you have a love hate relationship with this guy. He's made or three of the greatest movies and a whole lot of just the worst ever and this movie Judging by the trailer is about of mom who takes her kids the beach and then they go beyond iraq they come back from five years old to fifty and then and then the big line is. Something's wrong with this beach. Thinks so how do you make a whole movie about that. Here's the thing. Yes so i guess the whole premise of this movie at which i love. 'em nightshirt lonzo always you twist. I'm drawing a blank. I i see dead people. Yeah six cents excess. Which have we talked about this. I knew the whole time he was dead. There's there's one. I'm not saying there's one scene where he's sitting there and they're talking and they don't they don't they. Don't acknowledge him. It's right near the beginning. I was thinking to myself. I know i see dead people. It's the kid and the cop another cop. And i'm like he's the dead person that the kids sees that's the one two but here's what made it. Ultra disappointing was. I thought everybody knew it. And i saw in the theater and i thought like i was waiting for a twist. And then when then reveals he was dead and everybody was like i was like thank you hate. The most of those people like us say that other people go bullshit. You didn't know as i really. I'm not gonna lie about knowing. The plot twists for six cents like the plot twists for the village. You got me but six cents was like dude. I saw that from the start. And i remember the scene. I've only seen at once is right there. And they're sitting in the living room and the kids talking to the cop and neither one of the cops not acknowledging bruce willis. Yeah and you know what. I'm not gonna call you on that one. I will leave you. I believe you thank you. Thank you know what else leads us. We believe club so older liking this not liking this. It's hard to tell with movies right until you see them. Insulin reviews come out. And then i think the poor guy's probably under so much pressure to come up with great twist in every minute. We bryce inmates now. But yeah i guess this one is. The whole thing is beach. You live your life in reports the twenty four hours so anybody that goes to the beach agents and you know he always has a hook. It's whether he pulls it off in terms of the That said every time. I see his name for whatever reason i'm down for it. I'm never seen his alcee because even if it's not the best even it's not and look stay sense was a great movie regardless of you know even if they're up to that i still always intrigued comes up with because i love those kinds of movies. I love those supernatural thriller. twists movies. You said you go to the beach and live out your life and twenty four hours. That's happened to me a few times during spring break. it also sounds like my last year of my life. Is that a nice one hundred fifty all right. So here's the one that i'm looking forward to the most and i'm sure you've probably guessed this actually even said you're doing this one for me because when you pick out all the movies talk now get back. Which is peter jackson's version of all the footage not remember phrase that there's a movie that came out in nineteen seventy called. Let it be which is known forever as the most depressing Beatles movie product ever because it shows the band basically breaking up. It's really depressing really sad. Peter jackson got a hold of the fifty six hours of footage and says this is not a depressing movie. These guys worn out each other's throats. There are actually having a great time making this movie and is now taken. These fifty six hours and edited his own version of the last basically the last time frame of the beatles career shall we say even though they record abbey road afterwards. But that's not a story. I am so excited to see this because it was supposed to come out and thinking two thousand nineteen then got delayed to twenty just because of production and then get delayed till twenty one as a beatles. Fan this to me is the crown jewel of the summer. That will end. Look the fact that you just did approve. You know way more about the history bills in the story. The musician and being ensuite and i could. I'm just you just might drop that whole situation. Because i couldn't have said it better in your right and i think it's going to be something like how do you i think a big challenge for him is cutting down fifty six hours of footage into a film and i'm not really sure running time exactly but beatles sands are gonna go well. I think once again though. It's one of those things where yes bills fans they're gonna watch it and like it no matter what but i think if he does a good enough job i think people want to see it because it's a slice of this period of time when you had the biggest band of all time change the course of of pop culture completely and they're having fun and you can see it in the trail. It's just you see paul mccartney then and we obviously we know him now almost eighty and ringo as well but these guys were just kids. Twenty eight twenty seven years old and thinking about the life they've lead. I was just really excited to see just a slice of what it was like to be in london in late. Nineteen sixty nine. I think that's going to be fun to see and being somebody that. I'm not huge beatles family you see fans which i talked about. We'll by proxy. Then you would understand this. But when i saw that foot as what was fascinating to me is john lennon's mythical figure i didn't grow up knowing his using i grew up after you know he had was already had already passed so for people who experience it it was like a window it was like. Oh my gosh we get to see him. We you bus guy. Seamy archival footage integrators performances. In the stuff you see over and over but oh gosh sees stuff. You've never seen in the way again. Just being normal interacting with each other. I was fasted. So you're right. I mean beatles diehards are going to go crazy for but just like in the way that will give raspy or even exactly. Yeah and you're really into it because you'll be interested to learn even if you didn't start out as these fan and the best documentaries are always like that you know. I mean whether king kong whether you like video games are not as one of the best documentaries ever see same with american movie. Same with you know. I'm too old for this shit. There's a lot of great movies out there that you don't even have to be a fan of movie making heavy metal video games. It's about the characters is about the people and we all know the beatles as you know four of the most iconic foremost economies issues of all time. So i'm excited just to see like i said this piece of history done in a positive way rather than this negative way that the original that'd be was done jackson exactly peter jackson right. You know that he's doing this right and you know it's like it's just that stamp all over it but yeah to your point. Docs have become such a huge thing. Now showing walks last year because of a member of the critics choice. And i vote in the documentary awards. I vote in maine awards. And i think the docks i probably like just as much if not more than the regular films this past year. There's been so many great documentaries like and they do they transport you into a different world. They do i. I produce the documentary last year. I'll send it to you about this. It's called. I'm too old for this shit. And it's about mind biography. It's about this band that disbanded three years ago when they were in their teens. And what they didn't know was that Their music had made it across germany and they had a big fan base in germany. They hadn't played together for thirty years and find they have this big fan base so they go over and play this festival in germany and in their fifties their dreams come true of being rockstars For one weekend amazing. Wanna watch it yeltsin. It's you realize eurovision exactly. That's exactly right last question for you. Nicky what what's the movie that you're most looking forward to. And what do you think. The biggest hit out of all we discussed. Well i think you know between aalst nine and black widow in terms of the biggest hit like boxoffice the one thing does. It's going to release on same day on dizzy unlike premium interesting that. That won't give you the true box office. And that's why. I think fast and furious might overtake it Let me see looking over this list. Which one of my most excited four personally. I mean honestly fast nine. I think because of the fact that. I just wanted to be like. I remember one of the most fun experiences i ever had was a transformers movie be so cheesy it. So the child and we had so much reality. The last year. I want fans escape steeliness over the top. Just laugh at the screen fun. And so i think that's why i'm excited about like cnn. Crowd and What about you. I i agree with you. I think fast will be the box office king although scarlet black widow to obviously i love zombie movies. Like i said dave's a good friend of mine. Zack snyder so i wanna to see army the dead. I'm excited to see The suicide squad. And i'm excited to see the beatles movie and also the sleeper for me. I'm really looking forward to is candyman. That one to me is the one that that's that's the first on my list for sure. Yeah i would say yeah. My number two is probably suicide. Squad and in sleeper would probably eat knots. Not sleeper visits pixar. But i'm excited to see luka. But i much. I love animated films. I'm a sucker for an ounce so a big sucker for sea monster so once again. Combination biopic nikki. It's always great talking to you. This was your idea. Glad you did this. Because it's such a poignant time for for movies and i think this gives people a lot of incentive to go and check out. I saw great ad. I don't even remember where i saw. Maybe maybe a netflix or something whereas reminding people about how fun it is to go to the movies. I don't know where have you seen this ad out well. Netflix came out with like Reopened also matthew mcconaughey. I think that's the one. Yeah it was whatever it was on. And i was just like it was a really smart idea because i think a lot of people forgot. Just how cool. It is the go to the movies and i'm excited to go for sure. As soon as i can putting together this list and thank you for having me on was anytime every time. But i was like julie. I don't know if people realize like this is an impressive list of blockbusters moves is like they're testing the waters roy. Go and there's so many choices ending the fact that i have something on my list. I was like peter jackson sixty six hours. I'm going to get to see jake. So and then there's a whole slew of streaming up to me but i just stopped that was coming out in theaters. But thank you for having me on. It's always a blast to chat with. You want jokers vote. Captain love line. Well we'll get ready for the big winter movie preview preview and we can discuss. How these did it'd be perfect. Can't wait i already know. It's come now even beginning of september. So you should. You're such a keener. you're such a movie keener. Probably all pluses and school too didn't you you.

Alan V George, Pastor

"You're listening to bellwethers podcast with matthews. Joseph guys thank you so much for tuning into ender sort of bellwethers podcast and today we have passed through allenby josh vida's on this protest. It's a great honor to have asked alan jars for most of you might be familiar with his name because he has been phenomenal in the online online churches. He for ten years. He was working as a pastor of life soc online and after that he recently transition into a whole new era off dislike station and combining dislikes asian and helping churches build up the online environment. And it's such an honor to have at most of our. It's it's a great honor to hallam me all the way frontier who's actually guess surpassed silence book of is such a and honor to have you thank you. It's an honor to be here. And i'm glad We're getting to have this conversation today. Yeah so you might tell anybody a bit about yourself about so that you know just to know that the audience can know about the me thing and also the faster aspect of it. The money ali thing. Yes so yes i am. Originally from india from carola Was born and raised in the middle east for most of my life and then moved here in two thousand and four I met a girl fell in love with her. She didn't want to move to the middle east. I wanted to marry her. So i moved here so seven years later. We have three children one dog and both of us are have the opportunity of serving. God's so we are thrilled with just how god has been directing your steps and can wait to see all that he doesn't the future that's amazing. Yes it's it's a lot of stuff about yeah. I'm so thrilled to have you. And i'm pretty sure what the leadership inside and be the dislike insides of the church incites. Everything that comes from you is gonna be a great measure and people are going to be really inspired by this conversation. And i really hope that i can be to be inspired by what you're about in these next few minutes. Oh pressure right. I mean you're you're you're no pressure on me. Yeah i mean yeah you just gotta be. That's like the best thing you've got to do so Let's go onto the first question. So i think this question is be. I think discussed this first question that i'm drass cast being asked by a lot of people especially since two thousand nine hundred twenty twenty twenty one year a years. And that's one question that i really look forward to response. But because when i asked this question to different people they all have a different opinion. They'll have a different point of view. So how do you think leadership. On a whole has transitioned in the last twenty three hispanic. That is a very broad question. Because i think many people have different opinions of how they define leadership and i think one of the one of the realities of leadership is People think that when you're a leader you have extreme too. You know what decision you need to make. And people think the better leader you are the more certainty you have as to how to lead. But a lot of times the more influence you have or the greater responsibility you have from a leadership perspective. The less certainty you have because leaders exists to bring clarity in times of uncertainty. So i think there's there is a misunderstanding at times when it comes to leadership but i think this last year nobody knew what was going on. Nobody knew how to lead. And it was not just the church world but you st. How restaurants responded and you see how hospitals responded and you see how different companies and organizations for profit. Nonprofit people responded and honestly it is that resilience and flexibility and the ability to lead in the midst of uncertainty that allowed organizations to succeed or or that cost organizations to close down and not succeed and so I i remember talking to a guy that ran a restaurant. And he said man. I it was. It's heartbreaking to be able to see people in my restaurant. I wanted to walk through my doors but i also realize that i can still support the community with having a great to go system or whatever you know order online and so he talked. He told me that he was actually making more money. During the pandemic versus prior to it because people still want to order food but it required him to be flexible and be willing to change his ways of operating in order to adjust to the current needs. And so i think it's true of church. World outside of church world as leaders were called to be flexible. We don't need to have all the answers. But we need to drive towards clarity clarity and certainty or two different things. I think clarity's more we know the direction we're headed We may not know all the steps needed but we can build the steps as we're going will we know that's the direction we want to go. So i think this past year has shown all of us Because i believe that we're all leaders to some extent. Even if you are staying at home with your kids you're leading your children and you have to figure out the new rhythm when it comes to helping them understand their schoolwork. And how do you lead them to that season. So i think all of us have led in different ways. And it's the ones that have had the ability to be flexible. The ones that knew that. It's not about certainties about clarity. There i i sense that those are the ones that have seen success in the efforts that they've taken. That's that's very sure about a couple of points that you hit up our there like clarity and certainty. That's that's something really amazing 'cause People who are who have clarity may not be certain. And people who are certain. Have clarity. so it's something that re disquiet up at the beginning. It's as far as at the end of the you might get confused. Board at the board might cross. It might add up in a mess. So know clarity and certainty at different that i love you get that find out because that is something important as leaders we need to have cloudy and certainity at least at least a little extent in a problem might not be having your entire clarity on how things work out but at least we rough plan is like the best thing to do. Yeah the the way. The way i think about it is so if you wanna use a math example clarity essays. The answer for certainty is two to four and the person that is is choosing certainty over clarity. What happens is unless it's tuplice to. They won't try anything different. And so someone status. Well what if we do oneplus three. No it's gotta be toothless to well. What if it's one one was one neuronal. He's gotta be two-plus-two and so if you're holding onto certainty you never be able to take a step forward. However if you're holding onto clarity as a leader and your goal is the known before the whether it's tuplice to one plus three three plus one or one was one was one. The goal is to get to the predetermined destination. How you get there might change. But we're still getting to the destination so that to me is how i differentiate between certainty and clarity. I lead towards clarity because in today's world it's it's unpredictable The i mean if you look at last year it's not just the pandemic it's the racial tensions is so many things the politics that was happening and not in the us but all over the world in those kinds of situations. There's no way that you could stick to what used to work. And what. I keep prying that. No we know our destination. Now gotta figure out a way to get there because my current situation determines me to be flexible so for me. That's how you clarity and certainty. I think clarity is what i lean towards when it comes to leading. Wow that's that's amazing. Like spot on stuff that he just said now. Also wanna hit one of the other things that you said that everybody's a leader and even if a person who is leading for with three kids stay at home dad or stay at home. Mom you're still a leader. And that is something amazing. Because i think that's something that's a concept of leadership that has been something that i would say that we have not exactly looked over because i believe i i think most every believes that everybody has Everybody has potential for leadership and all the seven billion people in the world. Everybody has every poison as a potential for leadership but leadership today has been made like more like a position oriented one rather than the actual action-oriented. It's actually has caused people to mix up okay if you're an opposition leader but they don't realize that they have the potential to be leader because i mean one of the greatest examples i read. I read recently in a book like this. Because everybody's a leader. Everybody has potential for leadership and one of the greatest example that writer points out as the exam. Beleaguer have beleaguer. Ham is the world's most for non evangelist and billy has parents. I mean they were not voice leaders. David not big. Big church leaders are the but their job was to leave. Beleaguer have to teach the kids to teach them the ways of the law Teesta to lead them into life into into out delivered his word and they didn't a better they. The best possible that resulted in the league. Becoming i mean. Of course there's got sprays provision that everything but also there was also sustained or leadership from the parents that actually influenced him to become leaders. And i think every every parent is actually a leader and every person the and you know when you actually hit that. I just want to bring that up because leadership Because today we believe leadership and action-oriented emmy believe leadership is positioned oriented. But not actually the actually the other way around. It's more action oriented if i may tweak what you said just a little bit. I think everyone is a leader and everyone has the potential to be a good leader. Because i think everyone is a leader. And you're a good leader or about leader. I think even the bad leaders have a potential to be a good leader Because there's there's many examples in the world of bad leadership But there's examples of good leadership to because i think leadership to me is influence and so if you are in a place where you can influence someone might be. The people that following on social media might be. Your kids might be your spouse your siblings your friends. Your co workers You if you can influence them to take any direction that is leadership and so how you use. That opportunity depends on the individual. And that's i think how you might say. Oh he he or she is a good leader or here. she's a bad leader. So i think of it as everyone is a leader. They have the potential to be a good leader while. That's that's the spot on again. But i think it's time we need to move to the next stop it because leadership is last. I think we could keep on talking for hours on this one. Yeah so yeah so moving into the next since more about your or your position. Position as life trish online pastor so you are leading the life. Cash church online Online church even before the pandemic status. How do you think. Leading life online. At pre pandemic served as a qualifier for leading the online during the pandemic. Uh talking to a friend of mine and we were talking about the topic of how there are pastors and church leaders today that are struggling because they were forced into being an online pastor All over the nation if not the world you see many people now saying i. New title is search online pastor online director. Or something like that. And what's what's what's interesting to me is when i stepped in that role. It was a choice. I made when the rest of the world Had to make that decision they were forced into it. And i think there's a difference being forced into it and actually choosing to take that step. So i don't come from a technology background. I i'm not a digital native. The thing that drew me towards online ministry was a couple of things one. When i gave my life to christ i just ask god. I said god. What do you want me to do. I was willing to do whatever he wanted me to do. Because you radically changed my life. And so i remember telling me that i want you to go into the world and tell people what i did for you. It sounds really simple. But i'm a logical thinker. I'm a concrete thinker. Unfortunately and so for me. I i got stuck where he said. Go into the world. Because that sounds good on a bumper sticker but realistically i feel like god was setting me up for failure. Because people's spend an entire lifetime trying to reach their community or their city. How can a person reach the entire world. And so when you know fast forward to joining on staff at life george i started at one of our physical locations and when this opportunity to lead online came. Light bulb moment happened for me because i i was reminded of what god said and i saw man at the click of a button you can reach the world. I think what also helped me was. I had family that lived in different countries and so i knew that connecting online or doing a video call online or facetime video things got. That's the you leverage. Whatever opportunity you have to continue building relationships. I'll give you an example. So my mom. She used to live in india. If if when my mom called me and it a video call and said hey. I want to see the kids. The grandkids put them on on the phone. If i were to tell her mom you know a video call is not going to give you the best experience. Ask compared to being in the same room with them. So i'd like for us to not do the video call and let's wait until you can fly here in person. My mom would slap me on the back side of my head through that phone. She was put the grandkids on. Because i want to see them. And i think many times as a church. We tend to complicate something. That's not that complicated. We tend to go do we. You know is physical better church better. You're asking the wrong question. It's not about which ones better it's about leveraging everything that we can to share the gospel in to reach people who don't know christ and so you're telling me i can pray with somebody that's living in denmark or china or hong kong or israel and and and if i come up with excuse well i can pray with them but a video call doesn't give you the best experience. I'm missing out an opportunity that god has created for us in this generation. So for me. It's not about which ones better it's about doing everything we can to reach people who don't know christ so that's my mindset. I think these past almost ten years doing church online life church as a concrete thinker. I think god knew that. I needed to see examples and i can tell you story. After story of how. God radically transformed people's lives by them simply watching online or attending services online or a social media post or an e mail even that resulted in conversation and leading someone. Try so for me. It's not about saying oh the you know. Is this the perfect model or not no. Do we believe that. God can do immeasurably more than we can dare to imagine. If that's the case god can use the internet. God can use the laptop. God can use a cellphone. God can use an email. God can i would even say god can even use a poorly written email to to read someone who's lost so for me. I view it as. Let's not underestimate what god can do. Let's view this as an opportunity that he's created and given us the tools to navigate the different new season. We have in front of us are. That's that's the spot on because you know and you know we need. We need to do something like that. We need to always leverage the opportunities. We app because i've seen over the close of laughs last year is i've met a lot of people say you know. God is not giving me a chance. Now i'm praying god to open up away I'm i'm praying god to do this do that and you know the first thing that comes to mind is do what the last thing god asks you to do. And that's that's what you need to do because the last thing i've got safety If you if you wanna be used by god if you wanna be leveraged by god to do great things. I think the first thing is do what the last thing that god asks you to do. And just do it. And that's that's gonna be opener for the rest of the things in your life and especially when it comes to technology to be like you said you know you can brave people in different parts of the world different time zones you know earlier earlier. That was not possible. Maybe five years back ten years back with sounded like a remote obeying idea. And if you if you actually told people like ten years back. Hey danny as you're going to be speaking talking with people in an online based people. I'm pretty sure people would ask me if i told that today. In scum to it's become a reality and whether we like it or not the important point is that we have a lotta opportunity. Here we can talk to people. We connect with people online. I mean i can connect with people in india or bangladesh or china or japan or anywhere in the world on the other side of the world because of the technology that has as and then we leverage that you know in the right sensitive right baby can reach many more people and i read a recent survey that does like almost seven billion people are on planet earth and in that almost three point. Five billion people. You social media. That's like half the population of the world. And you know you. You had the statistics that right so it's just the step that day to you. Know to to to move forward and to dislike yourself and go ahead and do it and did not even a task. I mean instagram are are faced with you. Know it's it's not. It's not a big deal. I mean i know people pretty people even can do make a facebook account so and they still a migrant cheetahs fram line sometimes facebook at all. I'm like wow. I mean i never knew existed for a while but this this is so amazing how you leverage technology and how you can use that technology forgotten for the for the will of god for the purpose that he has. I wanna go onto the next question. More like on the asian one. And how do you think that I'm cynthia you're you're an entirely new position with helping churches digitalized completely into the online online portfolio. How how do you. How how how. How do you feel about that. How do you feel like this. Dislikes era has been changing. How do you think this twenty. This decade has been entirely changing the issue. That's coming forward. I think that in many ways it's already there and it's already present. I think the church has not been as aggressive as we need to be when it comes to adopting visual tools and platforms case. In point i mean you can purchase something on amazon And it it sends you three other things that are recommended to purchase. Understands your buying habits. Google the when when people have questions in life when people are trying to answer. Life's most difficult questions nowadays. They're not talking necessarily early to a trusted mentor for. I do not talking to their pastor. I not talking to their friends. They go on google and they go. How do i do this if it's not google it's google's other search engines youtube and it's i mean everybody is is trying to figure out. How do i do this. But they go online because google. That's answering the question. It's other people answering other people's questions so it's still people connecting with people and so to me i. I'm always wondering about how we as the church can and redefine ourselves. Because if you if you look back to the old testament the body of christ or followers of christ the children of god we have always been a disrupted body always been forced to move and it goes all the way from the from the beginning when you see the israelites being set free from being under the egyptians which you notice was they were being led by god either by a cloud or pillar fire and the bible says that when god moves the people moved and so they were used to disruption bear. Life's were built around the expectation. That things were going to change. Unfortunately over the years we have lost a little bit of that and disruption is something we detest. We don't want it because we've created models and we've created formulas to make church work and so anything that disrupts that kinda bothers us. So i think for us. We just need to return to. Who are doing this. Pandemic doing everything that we're seeing. Is this a way of us knowing that meant. I think god's moving and he's trying to do something different instead of us taking our tents and building palaces around it let's put the tents down and move and follow god because we've always been a body that's chosen to follow him rather than comfort and convenience and so for me as i look across the opportunities we have. I think god's trying to catch our attention. I think he has radically shifted. Our thinking what we thought was you know. People are dying to come to our buildings. Once a week. I feel like churches are realizing that. It's not the people coming to us. We need to go to the people and if you look at technology today. That thing is built for us to do that. So it's not about the church doesn't even have to build anything we just need to use. What's already available because end of the day. It's not about programs or it's not about just just you know Programs that we build a church. It is about connecting with people. It's people being there for each other. The greatest commandment is love god. Second greatest is to love others. Just like you love yourself. And so it's all about loving god and loving people. It's not about buildings. It's not about cathedrals. It's not about fans fancy looking lighting and You know things like that. It's about god and it's about his people and so we just need position ourselves to where we are sensitive to that fruit so when i look look ahead. What excites me. Is that I think that churches will have the opportunity to step into it or they were forced into either way. I think that's the direction we're going. I think that's that's a very important that you just said like when there's a crisis the church expense i mean pretty much all through the by. I mean if you actually look at the best example David when they were in jerusalem persecutor they expanded into every other regions they. They've entered to the different company neighboring countries. They ended the asia minor region when europe. And then you know if the ski captain expanding so every time there was a crisis it always proved that the churches i would say the church has the most prepared organization in the world. And that is pretty. Mr because anything comes in because the first has been From from the beginning from the first century church the church is the one thing that has been constant all throughout in other there will be many organization billionaires millionaires have gone around presidents. Prime ministers lead us politicians. Everything has come and come and gone around but the church is the one thing that has been stable all throughout the last two thousand and twenty one years and that is because god actually plays the church in such a strategic way to be to the pillar to be to be the door to him. So you know to that so that blue reach reach out to people and so that we you know we can tell them about. Christ may make an open open. Invitation to anybody was broken. Who isn't who needs chrysler. Come to us we. We be price crisis here. This is the bride of christ. And that is something amazing. And this church. How the choices transitioned all through. Last two thousand twenty one years is actually amazing and you know and even with the pandemic when people thought you know the is going to die. I mean no choice would never die because it says you still keep on going because of because of what god has placed the hearts of many many men and women who are ready to give give up everything for the for the lot well and because it's his church and i think sometimes we forget because we have our name on the side of the building we think it's our church is not ours. It's his and so he cares more about the church than we will ever beginning to care about. He cares more about the people than we can ever care about. So that's as long as we remember that this is his church will be headed in the right direction. That's that's fought on a going into preaching more i. That's that's pretty amazing. All right so Go into the next question. And i think this question us oxo pretty strategic because of how we are. We don't know how long we will be in this pandemic phase of the world from face. So i just want to ask you this question. What tips would you be able to give to people To lead better during the time of the pandemic leaders as in church leaders or anybody or would you go for more general one. Because i think that that that's the audience because there's a lot of different people in different leaders. I think under centralized one would be better I recently shared this on my social media but a question that i get quite often is alan. I'm confused about my purpose. i don't know why exist. I don't know why i'm here you know how do i know what i'm created for It's like you said earlier. People might be wondering. I want to be used by god. I wish you would open the door for me. And and there's always like they're waiting. And i was reminded by two questions and i believe it was andy stanley that that mentioned his longtime ago. But when you're asking yourself about purpose ya these two questions really helped. I wish somebody asked me these questions. So the two questions were this instead of saying what is my purpose. Let's redefined that question as who is my purpose Because what is my purpose indicates you know the purpose serves me. And it's all so that my kingdom can get bigger when we when we rephrase it and go. Who is my purpose is not about us anymore. It's about who can serve which aligns exactly with scripture so instead of asking yourself. What i wish i knew what my purpose was. What if we would ask ourselves. Who is my purpose. Who does not have me here to serve the second question that i really like just another way to think about it is if you were you know the last stage of your life and there were a line of people outside that were lining up to talk to you and they were to thank you. What would they thank you for. What would they like. Wow if they came to you and said man matthews. I just wanna i just wanna say thank you because of you blank. How would they. What would you want here. I think those two questions can really help you shape and help you see maybe what your purposes and honestly just get out and try and so it might advice during the season as you're trying to figure this out as to how do i lead. Where do i lead. What do i do try to think about it. Instead of what asked the question who who does god have around you. Who does who does. God have that might be following you on social media I love getting questions from random people because it it gives me another opportunity to share the love of christ because a lot of people are hurting out there. A lot of people are asking questions. A lot of people are wondering what their next step needs to be. And maybe god has placed a vision and a an answer or even your life could be a testimony to what they're going through and so don't hide that. Don't don't wait for the doors to be opened. I it's not a magical moment like i've been in leadership now for a little bitch. There's no magical moment where someone says. Oh most fabulous leader alan. We have created this great opportunity for you and we are opening the doors. That's not how it works. You just take a step. You take a stab when when you think that even even if you're on social media and like for example matthew's you're doing this podcast you just have to be obedient even if you're not seeing exactly what you wish you would see just because you just don't know who's gonna listen to this who's going to hear this whose life could could be changed forever by your active obedience because the outcome is not our responsibility. Obedience is our responsibility. God handles the outcome and so as a leader as you're looking ahead remember that you're job is to obey. Its god's job to handle the outcome and think of it as a who rather than a what it's not. What is my purpose. it's who is my purpose so that would be a vice. I would give you as you're stepping out or you're thinking about men. Where do i go from here. Maybe those questions could get. You headed in the right direction. That's that's an amazing amazing when who is by is rather than what is my. But that's a that's a total paradigm shift in your perspective side. I think that's pretty amazing. And i think almost towards the end of this off the session so i wanna ask you the last christian so what would be the golden words from alan rejoice. Oh man. I think so when i look back in my life. I think i had a lot of opportunities to quit and to stop and to not take a step forward when when i was growing up. It's the weirdest thing. I i've always felt like man. God had a plan from me. I knew that god wanted to use me to reach some people or reach the world and all of that but my current situation did not match what i thought god was calling me to do and it was. I was so close. I mean i i was. I guess you could say this. I was one decision away from quitting and allowing the things around me and some of the negative voices around me to to just give up I think you always have people that will try to talk you out of big vision. You always have p people trying to talk you out of what you think your purposes I like i said. I grew up in the middle east I grew up in a place called behind and today. So if you go on google maps right now and you type in bahrain like you have to zoom in about fifty times before you can actually see it. It's a tiny little island in the middle east and so for me living there. I used to think men. How in the world am i going to reach anybody from this little island but you just never know how god opens doors and how he creates opportunities for you. And so there's i can give you a would be to never give up just just because you don't see what's coming doesn't mean you need to quit. Don't quit With regards to your education your career your relationships. Maybe your marriage is on the verge of of of just a maths of break-up don't quit don't quit don't stop. God has a plan for you in its greater than you can imagine. But it's going to require you to keep moving forward. 'cause i i tell myself this peter own. Peter got to walk on water because he stepped off the boat. If he never step out of the boat he would have never been able to walk on water. So if you want to walk on water you gotta step out of the boat. You can't quit halfway through. You've got to keep going so for me. I know this pretty generic but it holds a lot of meaning for me. When i when i say never give up. Because that's how close i was. And if i had given up. I would never have had the opportunity to meet my wife. I would never have had the opportunity to see my kids. I would never have had the opportunity to be part of what god in and through life church and and now in this new season would have never seen that either if i had quit and so never give up. Just keep on going and trust that god will open the doors when when when he needs those doors to be opened. Wow that's just amazing. And i think that's so inspiring i mean i mean i i can feel that over here and i think people who listen to this right now also feeling that but thank you so much a pastorale and for those for this incredible session and it's been an eye opener lost things that you said about leadership about leading slice your golden words. Everything is amazing and thank you so much for being here. I can't thank you enough for being here that such a joy and so much fun to have your here thank you. It's been an honor. God bless you.

Robots help humans save water as climate change makes every drop count

That's pretty smart. Humans screwed up the climate can robots helpless us adapt from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm ali would on our series how we survive but we've been covering uncowed tech can help us adapt to climate change. One thing will need to adapt to more drought. Scientists say the risk of drought will rise fastest in places that are already dry like the american west and as water gets more scarce. We need to get better at conserving and reusing what we have one place to start fixing old old leaky pipes. We have a lot of those. The american society of civil engineers says the u._s. loses two trillion gallons of drinking water to leaks each year here. It is a big problem and reporter. Daniel ackerman has the story of one startup exploring a solution with robots three utility workers huddle around a hole in the sidewalk in cambridge massachusetts the fire hydrant that usually caps the whole lies on the ground nearby. One worker holds up a small robot named scout. It looks like two umbrellas stacked on top of each other about a foot wide exactly the right size to fit in the city's drinking water pipes. I drop it in. They send the robot for a swim. Through the system scout disappears down the open talkback on scout flows with the water for a couple of hundred yards underground navigating the twists and turns of the pipe scout is on the lookout for leaks faulty. Altea pipes are a huge problem in the u._s. On average for every five gallons of water that make it to your tap a whole other gallon leaks out along the way and it's surprisingly we tough to pinpoint where underground pipe has sprung a leak. Everyone of us is paying about twenty dollars a year for the leaking water. You is the inventor inventor of scout the robot and co-founder of watch tower robotics in boston and the community up for the three hundred million people in the u._s. That's about six billion dollars. He worked on scouts designed for four years as a p._h._d. Student at m._i._t. With little success but says in twenty fifteen he had a breakthrough. Thanks next to a failed move at a dance party. I accidentally stepped on my partners dress. As you can tell the lady wasn't happy and she instantaneously no digit and that was a moment dumping solution version. Every startup needs a founding story right. Scout acts like the partners dress as the robot plums the pipes. It's umbrella like skirts. Get yanked by water water draining through leaks scout logs the location of each tug that tells utility crews where to dig to replace pipes. Wu says he's still tweaking the design. We've been doing a lot more optimization. Try to make it more reliable and more sensitive scout isn't in mass production yet but the robot is drawing attention from potential customers water managers in san antonio texas. Even saudi arabia have flushed scout through field tests. The technology is more attractive in places where water could get more scarce. Thanks to climate change places like l._a. Yes alvin battista engineering manager for water distribution division vision of the los angeles department of water and power teesta says climate change plays a major role in how l. a. Plans water supply california's record-setting drought has has officially ended but who's to say what climate change will bring next year we'll have we may have potentially very minimal snowpack l. A. loses about five percent. It's water to leaky pipes. That's actually pretty good but when the next big drought hits when not if every drop count teesta wants to get that leak rate even and lower we have looked at several leak detection technologies most of the ones that we have looked that our acoustic bass acoustic based meeting microphones phones water makes a certain noise when it gurgles through a crack in the pipe bautisa says the acoustic leak detectors generally work but not so much when there's a lot of background it turns out l._a. Has traffic sometimes l._a. Has seven thousand miles of water pipes watchtower robotic says it might cost one to two thousand bucks per mile of pipe inspected that would be about ten million dollars for scout to check l._a.'s entire system less for just a spot check of the oldest pipes apes but she's does not ready to sign a contract but he says he'll keep tabs on the robot's development and the technology is still developing back in cambridge. Scout is is having trouble rounding the turn to get back out of the pipes. I think it hit the the stem and then dropped back down. We wait for scout to resurface from an open fire hydrant nearby rich. Can you shut it all the way off and then turn it back on again. The robot gets unstuck. Scout shoots out of the open fire hydrant into the waiting hands ends at the utility worker. Thank you ready for another test another day. That's daniel akron reporting. He says once scout the robot makes said out of the pipes in one piece it sends its data to a centralized computer system that lets utility workers map the leaks and target the problem pipes and now for some related links one technology. That's not helping us. Adapt to climate change is youtube. A german researcher published a report last month in the journal frontiers in communication. It found that most videos on youtube related to climate change essentially deny hi climate change or at a minimum they go against the scientific consensus that humans have been the primary cause of global warming since the nineteen fifties. The research said the videos often hijacked scientific terms to make themselves seem more legitimate in an analysis of some two hundred videos found by searching anonymously for climate change inch sixteen of those videos denied human involvement in global warming patterns and ninety one of them were straight up conspiracy theories and the research found those videos had basically the same number of us as those that actually present the science accurately you can read the research and the methodology at our website marketplace tech dot org org the guardian did a story about the report and asked you to comment the company said it's been trying to prioritize credible information and point users away from conspiracy theories now that german researcher dr joaquin allgeier said he thought scientists should try to take youtube more seriously as a platform for information and and even maybe try to get to know some big name creators who can help combat misinformation online.
