Carl Levin, Michigan's Longest Serving US Senator, Dies at 87
"First elected to congress in nineteen seventy-eight michigan's longest serving senator chaired the powerful armed services committee. He was very active around civil rights local development and protecting american workers having interviewed senator levin and read his memoir. Getting to the heart of the matter. I have some reflections. I imagined that if senator levin had a role in a television show he'd be fictional president. Jed bartlett's closest ally in the west wing practical and patriotic levin's thirty six years in the upper chamber as a democrat had paradoxes a democrat who investigated spending and financial excess in government as well as wall street a staunch believer as chair of the senate armed services committee. That america has a strong role to play in the world but voted against the second iraq. War levin was consistent with himself. He was a man who spent decades of politics. But i sense. He felt good about his impact when he saw himself in the mirror. Getting the heart of the matter reminds me of the writings of ben franklin. The similarities with the founding father aren't just physical appearance surprising wit and clearly understandable style both levin and franklin shared the belief that the long game mattered that even if it wasn't politically popular in the moment moment to make things happen in a country with a lot of people with differing views. You shouldn't always take everything off the table for your opponent that making is how democracy actually works his memoir is a blueprint without saying it and how we might put the broken engine of american democracy back together again. Levin rhetorically lays the parts on the table. I won't get into all of them. But they include the broken filibuster where he called out his own party for creating it then in order for an electorate and your colleagues to trust you you need to have a consistent northstar and compass and he's right if you look at the popular senior senator from vermont. The reason that he gets photo shopped everywhere sitting on a chair isn't because of any particular political stance it's because whether they agree or not people connect with him because they believe that he is who he says he is.

This is the end of the book month in today. I have for you my final book. It is the goads book of fish by richard flanagan. This book was published in two thousand and one so a bit more recently. And it's about four hundred fifty pages. In length it tells the tale of william buelow gold. Who was an english convict transported to. Tasmania also known as van demons. Land at the time and who becomes enamored with fishes. It's narrated by the aforementioned billy gold. Although the first chapter is a sort of discovery of this book of fishes and then a recreation of the book of fishes so sort of book within a book type tribe. We've seen this multiple times before. It starts off with billy gold in england and then making some decisions as being an artist and he has almost forced into the autistic type of world before. Doing some silly things gets transported into. Ben demons land. Tasmania and then more silly. Things occur and essentially sentenced to convict. Life says torches as imprisoning says beatings. All of these bad things happening to him. He tries to make his own life better through his autistic shoots and his entangled with some other characters in the book as such as the surgeon. Who is the one who gets them. Started on this book of fish this fascination of fishes and then towards the end of the novel he escapes. His confines. Goes on a journey gets recaptured. And then as almost put to death before being transformed into a fish of all things. Most of the action takes place on sarah's island which is an actual penal colony which is an actual jail where they would send convicts to do hard work and actually became a shipbuilding place as well. The island itself is tiny couple hundred meters in length and less that in with as well and the era it was set in the eighteen. Twenty s to the eighteen thirties. I believe so. This is when some technologies would just getting invented but it was still really berbar in sort of world a very brutal hosh

We ended up doing the whole episode about her experience with losing her job and her mental health struggles in getting addicted all these things that like but she very much came to us because she was already in our listener community in the other one was a young mom who was a new orleans nightclub worker and we talked about her career panic struggles and you know what what happened.

And i would like do you have this game on atari or on nintendo and he'd be like oh i think so you have to toast or early like yeah. I have that have battle totes like any game that you could think of. He has it so when that little box. Kate talked about before that little box. That came out. And it's on amazon where you can get like six hundred and something for thirty dollars. He was so sad. he's like well. This makes all my collection fucking worthless. Now they he had to expect. That was going to happen eventually though. Yeah but all of that to go on one usb card all those games when you can get like four games on the new on the on the new xbox or whatever and that's the amount of games that you can have on their it's crazy. What nintendo accomplished their technology might have been than what it is now. More advanced now than than it is now strand. I know what you're talking about. And the comparison there. And i think i might agree with that when they were what they were able to do with the new technology they had them. Yeah like the innovation that came from that gaming system comparatively to what they're doing now in the innovation of just making graphics and it's like what they're doing with cell phones like there's no difference. There's no difference between the new cell phone and the old cellphone just a little bit more battery in two more megapixels. That's how many megapixels need i don't need thirty megapixels. I'm not gonna make a billboard from my cell phone picture no. I'm not recording movies on my cellphone. All right so the any s like something that we all loved what size. I just looked.

"All right round number four quick shout out to the military ladies who slid into my hi deums with what i think chaps would say is the crown jewel of military literature. They slipped in with a book by an enlisted. Marine green named dayton beach which sounds like something that we would storm in okinawa. Somebody like that david beach but it's basically you go. What are the guys amazon's site. It's the enlistment not your typical military story and it's just a guy in a list of marine who was like i'm going to write a book. I have no formal training in any way. I'm not even going to correct the spelling or punctuation marks. I'm just going to write a book and gosh darn it. He did the only review on amazon. Just calls the yes. I think it says shut up boot only review on amazon but these ladies lead into my d._m.'s pulley jones brought this everyone's attention and this book is blown up and chaps much much to my delight. You actually went online and purchase that i might have been like either the first or second purchase of this book and i absolutely love it when kate says that so i read it around the lazy river this weekend whenever i was there and i stopped myself because i don't want it. It's one of those books where i don't wanna read too much. It's like binging at t._v. Show when you say you fall in love with a new t._v. Show and you want to keep it and you wanna have it and have new episodes. I don't wanna go through it too quickly because there's so many jewels that are in here but when she says that there's the he didn't edit anything i mean he didn't even run it through microsoft word yeah. Can you read the back of it. So people know a little bit about this book yeah so here's the here's the back cover man. He says and it's going to sound like i. I can't read again because the grammar is just so bad. It's hard to put together but bear with me. He said if you're offended by this book that i have achieved my goal i i started this project. The last few months of my life in my in the marines i had never seen anyone really share typical experience of military. Most stories you read are here. Here are of heroic deeds that very few of done well. I know way mean to disrespect those guys and their stories their most there are mostly notable and noble noble but factor the matter is that they're not common. Most guys come in and do their time party drink and live like frat bows. Most of the time i showed a few guys bits and pieces of this while i was driving it and they liked it so whatever next thing you know i'm on amazon publisher doing cover for my book. If you got this far might as well arita few pages you'll probably lose a few brain cells but what the hell will send for on the back cover of a book discussion could be like hey whatever man and then the front cover. He's like i made the front cover on the title of the book. It's fuzzy ass terrible like like like back in the day camera photo. It looks like it's taken from a motorola razor motorola razor in a dark marine corps ball. It's really dark there and the blues the title of the book what cover their faces says the enlistment is the title. There's so many things in here but it's so beautiful texan you guys this weekend. When i was sitting sitting there reading it it does remind me like if you just bramley go grab a marine by their smoke pit or whatever and you're just like. Tell me hey how you joined the marine corps. Let's pick up. I'm going to start just at the very the very chapter one. I want everybody to honestly read. This and i've have already reached out to date than i'm supposed to interview them on. Tomorrow's supposed to interview him on wednesday so he might be on the show on friday hope. He doesn't back out but this is incredible. Oh here we go around. No let me let me start. I want to pick the perfect start and it just doesn't do it. Just reads like p._f. Carpenter would've wrote it but i think it's serious if ends up being satire or did this on purpose. This guy is a genius because i think it does what are the chances. That's the case no none none. I don't wanna say none. I'm not i don't wanna see nothing because of what you said earlier with how many spelling mistakes are microsoft microsoft word picks up all of those even if it corrects it to the wrong word. Everything's spelled correctly so the fact that he just left it as is tells me that there's part of me thanks maybe he did this on purpose in which case bravo but either way. It's a great read all right so here's here's this part one of the very first things that you're right but this isn't the story of my high school experiences. This is about my enlistment back to the bread and butter shortly after determining. I did not want to clean pools forever. I went to the great lakes with my mother to watch my brother graduate from navy boot camp. I'll never forget seeing how proud of my family was of him and just the overall swagger he had to him compared to himself prior for leaving for boot camp camp so with two os after we visit him and all that good stuff we went back to our hotel room that night my mother and grandmother went out and started to stay home so then he talks about his first experience like googling how to join the marine corps shit like that so he finds he goes to a gas station and finds the little recruiters card that's just sitting at the gas station and he says so i called the number on the card it was greeted by sergeant crews and the smoothest most confident tone ever heard good afternoon sergeant crews united states marines. How can i help you. I answered in my awkward teenager voice. Hi hi. I was thinking about joining in the marine corps. I don't know sir not going to spell out the whole conversation because i can't recruiter can't spoil the recruiter man's magic powers but he had the hook line and sunk me really impressed me is how fast you wanted me to come in literally early on my way home the next day i'm talking. I was literally in my cool pool. Close for cleaning pools. You don't tip typically wear business casual clothes or nothing pretty much tank shop basketball shorts flip flops or whatever but search crews pretty much said. It was okay that i came in looking like a bum. I was sitting in the parking lot staring and my my heart started pounding a million times. They tell you that the yellow footprints is the moment that your life changes. Let me tell you now. That's bullshit. The moment you walk into recruiter's office is regardless of how you come in the military at one point you had to come to that office on your own accord and that's the point it's you and only you have to make the choice to go it or not. After your mustering up all the testosterone that my little boss could muster. I walked in the door. I opened the door and this man stands up and shit. You not imagine tom cruise on steroids. What i think happened here. This is what i think. After reading it aloud the second time i think that he got that software called dragon and and he is just taking a couple beers and he's just telling this voice software his story that makes sense right so i think that's the conversation yeah and he just going through it. You've got to read this. I haven't even gotten to the bootcamp part yet. It's just unbelievable ebel story after unbelievable story. It's legitimately perfect. You know i was telling you guys that. I think that it is like jar. Had i think this'll be the pogues jar dr head because it is the most poke story. He wants to join the military. He thinks that the infantry is what sounds sexy to him but then he google google what the infantry does and he said that he doesn't like to hike and fuck that sound lamer whatever so he wanted to go into into tanks and next thing you know he's just a motorable ripple. That type of dude is this. I cannot wait to talk. I i liked that. He says you know those stories that you hear the brave crazy ones and he's like ultimately though that's not the bulk of it. It's these stories like this stupid stuff and kate. How many times have you heard stories like this like. He talks about going to maps the. She says that because he fucked up forgot to bring different paperwork he has to go ten separate times to maps which is insane so he says that at one one point his recruiter the first time he goes to maps the recruiter goes to mcdonald's and makes them pay for himself like and you would think the government would take care of that mcdonald's for you. He's like i ed twenty bucks to my name and i had to stay there for three days and eat nothing but mcdonald's it was bullshit no yeah he tells the true. If you're this is what i would say if you're looking to go enlisted like read this book honestly because it's probably much more true <hes> especially with spelling errors makes it real <hes> expected even did it because i think a lot of people will we'll say oh i'm going to write a book one day and then it never comes to fruition so the fact that he followed through and put a book out there albeit self published on amazon. I think it's very admirable of this young man and you can win with guys like that final nathan beach what an eighth in with a d. dave and beat got his pen name or is that his action now. I looked at his lincoln. He's real and that's another thing that makes me think that this is not a troll troll at all guys. You're talking to rabbit hole kate here. I've done my research this. This guy is authentic for sure so so over the next couple apple weeks. I wanna walk you through chapter by chapter. We went through maps. These are the chapters that he has chapter one joining chapter to boot camp chapter three boot leaving m._c._a._t. Chapter four cam johnson captain chapter five christmas and new years two thousand twelve chapter six the end of camp johnston then visiting home home kebe hawaii and then my favorite one when we get to chapter eleven twenty one and saturdays or for the boys the brick by brick nathan beach long beach only had a couple of pictures on instagram and i knew i saw l. One was the saturdays for the boys. Flag can't wait to have him on the show. It's going to be a wonderful one last story that i want to tell you about real quick quick as a my save round. There is a former navy seal. Who's going to yale at the age of fifty two years old. He is going to be a freshman. His name is james hatch and he's going to be a freshman freshman year university and this after he got out of the navy after twenty six years as a seal fighting in places like afghanistan amongst other hotspots spots his career ended after he was seriously wounded in two thousand nine during a mission to find army sergeant bowe bergdahl who had walked off his post an incredible story story and incredible journey he talks about how he suffered from post traumatic stress fell drinking and drug use and even attempted suicide but he got back on the right track. He's he's going to school to go to yale and going to a school like yale at fifty two years old and being able to exercise those brain muscles homeboy homeboy better man than me no shot. I can do that now well. He's finding he's finding his end going back to that degree and going to yell with that big of a frame of reference. Probably it's such a valuable valuable experience and that's awesome so good luck a few shot out to him. He's going to be doing great things. I'm sure after his done his name is jim asked asked me. We'll try to get him on the show to save around alibis for you. Guys just quick thing for fort stewart pair asylum beaufort all these places evacuating ahead of hurricane gain dorian what one at the logistics of that getting that put on you last-second having to get all these bases cleared out and then you don't know where the storm's going what's happening so to be a recruit and have to be doing all this travelling and shit with your d is watching yeah. I don't know i just can't imagine what that's like. So all the rain putting the rain in your cargo argonne cargo pockets absolutely insane and also major shout out to our u._s. Coast guard admiral carl scholtz <hes> said that we <music> responding to help the behind baja main bahamian p pay me and good lord aiming in the wake and it showed video of helicopters and this was two days ago so i mean like as the hurricane still finishing out there was coast guard helicopters landing on the bahamas to help people so i know there's probably a ton of missions gearing up and getting underway to provide some relief to people who so desperately need it so shout out to them. That's always crazy to me the coastguard because i can remember back to being in iraq and if there was dust storms or bad weather whatever choppers grounded right and now these guys know there's terrible weather and they're flying right into it so that takes a lot of kahane's which is also very very well depicted in the movie the guardian so please watch that <hes> my save round <hes> obviously you mentioned army beat rice..

Maybe he wants to do horizontal stay up. Much cons anything. Yeah, I know you guys blog about it, and you talked about a radio but we didn't really react on here. Yet about chaps first pitch and chaps. I don't know what to say really like, you know, that hasn't been set already. But I'm sorry really all I wanted to say. I don't guy there's not anything that I could give fuck lots about. It worked out for the best because he went viral. Yeah, it's totally fun. And Bruce, Willis, did it the next day. So it's totally fine. I am excited about seeing people does that concert. You just want to say, you know, you look like you looks like one of those block dolls outside a car dealership trying to throw a baseball or maybe like he looked like a like an eight month old who can't yet stand up can sit up and throw a baseball, what else you kind of like the reverse Henry Rohan Gardner when he broke his arm. It could throw really, well, except when you had your vasectomy all your athleticism, got zapped out of you. One more. That's all I got. No. Keep going wait. I love, you know seriously. That's actually got to be one of the core things to do as, as a fan of sports to be able to go out and throw first pitch anywhere it wasn't cool. It wasn't really that cool now was going to be cool, whenever I thought, I was the only one there's like five other people fucking out there with me. Manily stadiums. But still I'm honored honor I've ever had. Anyway, big week for you chaps next week. You got the whole week ahead of you meet them, you want to get into that a little bit.

And then go on to DC and then go into Charlotte. Big week should be very, very fun. I think that's it.

We're going to get in a lot of people have asked us on social media the last couple of week two about some of these murder cases that's going on talk about the pardons.

If you're listening, President Trump do not go to war with Iran will we were ill least while we're in Charlotte because we. Will not have time to update. Hope updates. Hundred. Maybe..

"You were like, oh, I find this quiet FAT that a newer version of the one of the greatest aviation movies about time you'd probably pretty to blameless Jeff said, you get to talk about the movie we were soldiers and say like what could look at the calf community does. That's like that movie. Like, that's what those guys in Phnom. Like, that's a that's a lot to live up up up to. I don't think I'm not gonna make Paris their give it to a straight. What's what's your Mattis like? Brilliant. And I know a lot of people say that, but he is an incredibly smart, man. I think he's one of. The most significant leaders of our time like I think he'll go down in history as art of that. But I I still can't believe that I got to have him as a boss that kind of blows my mind when I think about it. But it wasn't he walks into he walks into a room, what kind of weight does it hold her people like oh shit a lot. But the thing is is not he's so candid, and so he's he's very charismatic in person. And he just gives the to straight. I ran a program for for him called the joint civilian-orientated conference where you take about forty business in thought leaders from across the country in from all different sectors. So like Coca Cola AT and T UPS entertainment industry. It's like all these people who don't have experience with any sort of military in bring him to the Pentagon. In we take them to all the different branches. And they need to meet with all of the service members in the end. They get sort of inexperience first hand experience of what it's like for these young people to serve in the military, and it changes their lives. It was actually incredible to do that. But on Pentagon day. We always we bring in secondary Mattis, so he can speak to the to the group himself, and they can hear from him. And they do is almost they do like acuity he talks a little bit, and then does acumen hay, and obviously times very valuable. So we only schedule like thirty minutes. For him to come down in speech everybody, and the the big one that we did he came down in you know, we're very like watching the clock like making sure that he too long. He's got other meetings stuff like that. So he came in and spoke to everybody was is off the record. I'm not gonna talk about what he talks about. But. He would speak to them. And so it's fast, thirty minutes. We're like, okay. We got to get this going, but he's still taking questions and stuff. And finally, you know, kinda interject your likes. You gotta go in. He was like, no, no, no. I'm having fun with this. I love answering these questions and ended up staying in our and a half and just like in his aides like fucking hated you too. All happy. Yeah. Exactly. We're like those incredible. And the takeaway from the people in the program, we're just like loan away getting to hear from him in you know, like just heat. He is. Fantastic leader. I think. To to get to have worked for him for the amount of time that I did I'm I'm honored. Grateful got to these though in we're using that as a caveat to ask the most important question is ubt history. Can you get him on the pot? I want to shoot him attacks. And let them know that I'm trying to get him on the pod just to respond to one of my. Darius emails. I've tried mad dog at g Mel dot com. Got that Email? Yeah..

"I'm checking bunks and were missing one guy. So I'll you know, I'm not too much of a hard assets. Like ten minutes before taps some sitting out on the front steps of the bay waiting for this kid to come back. None of that. Twenty minutes. Go by thirty minutes. I go up to the top of the hill at camp Buckner because that's where people would go make calls on their cell phones. Because I was the only place pushy get cell service. Nobody's there. So I'm just sitting there because this is this is two thousand three. So I can't I didn't have a way to go. Find him whatever. So obviously, I'm just going to sit there. We're stepping off the next morning probably like five thirty this dude finally comes back at three AM. Okay. All right. Well, get your bunk. We gotta get up in a couple of hours to to go to the field. No big deal. I'm not gonna handle this now. So we step off we go to the field the whole week. And I don't do anything with this kid. I'm just kinda like joke and treating them like normal. So this kid probably thinks and nobody I'm in the clear he forgot about it. Or he just doesn't care, and it's not a big deal. Because again, like I didn't like ratting on kids and getting kids in trouble just for the getting kids in trouble. I didn't think that was never my MO. But so then Saturday when we're back from the field. Everyone's got the day off. My my parents came up to to hang out for the day. Everyone's going to go to the lake and swim, and relax and have a day when we're standing in formation. Everyone's about to get released everyone gets released and I say, hey career. And he had a bunch of buddies coming up or something. And I said, hey, by the way before you go and hang out for the day. You see all these rocks that line the walkway going up to our bay. Will there's a cana- paint and paintbrush right over there. I want you to paint all these rocks because I think it would make our bay. Look a lot prettier if you painted all these rocks. When you're done painting. The rocks. Come get me, our inspect them. And if you did a good job, you can go, so he sorts painting. Whatever comes and gets me. I come back. I pick a one rock the bottom of it isn't painted. I go none zero. You gotta pay the entire rock. So the kid waste of the entire day painting rocks. When he could have been relaxing hanging out with his buddies. And the reason I found out later the reason. Love it. Hi, love it. Those rocks bitch. Chaps? I come to find out later. Come to find out the reason he wasn't there. His girlfriend had come pick them up, and they went and drove somewhere in we're hanging out in the woods somewhere in parking lot. Probably very Jane rotten crotch. Probably. And that's why I couldn't find them. So lesson learned makes your back in your bed. So if you're going to be getting your rocks off, you're going to be painting. Some rocks on my friends with cattle fouled found some other really good examples to this one always makes me laugh as throwback story too. So there's a kid at boot camp he was on fire watch in one d I notice that when he was coming on a decade it and salute them. So the d I ran to the rifle racks smacked at your bam. Now, you're dead because he didn't notice the droves had walked into the squad bay. So the DIA acts like he kills the kid. Bam you're dead. And then the kid said he started to do like the proper greeting of the day. Like report the number of recruits on deck, the C bags all that shit the rifles that are on deck, but the D I was like, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, my friend. You are dead. And you are now a ghost. So you have to go through the squad bay go. This is a ghost. Ooh. For the rest of the night. It's dough stack the stories that I think what makes the military great. Those are the memory..

"He was like that was my tune sergeant that sense saying, and I almost shit my because there's two marines that I think are probably three Smedley Butler. John Bacelona chesty puller are like the three marines of marines. But I want. Yeah. Plate list them out Rushmore of marine. Yeah. Let's not ugly sweater right now. Let's get that's shirt made up last night lease. So I'll set the scene a little bit the Chosin reservoir, the average temperature during this battle was negative thirty five degrees. So this was during a time when they didn't have modern gloves. No, they didn't have modern Imerys Emaar is that we have now just flat out don't freeze, and you can put them in almost as cold temperatures. You want to and they're not gonna freeze you're able to eat them. That was not the case with the old emerets they came in cans. So when they were there for days at a time in thirty five degree weather. The emerets were starting to free solid. They didn't have fire's built. Because there was it was basically out in the middle of nowhere. There was no woods. It was just a wide open area. And they had to take their immigrants set them up on poles and shoot them in order for them to blow into pieces and then the marines in thirty five degree weather with no. Fire had to put those into their mouth to get any type of nutrients at all I just let it saw there. If you've seen a Korean war veteran a lot of the times, the people who were in the front lines of the Chosin reservoir missing fingers. And I think people just assume that it would be like now whenever somebody's fixing ID's other fixing bombs that they're blowing up what they had to do in the Chosin reservoir was they would go out. And if you were on watch, you would cut out a whole so your hand. So your your trigger finger could touch the trigger. They would stay so long that their fingers would get frostbite, and they would cut their own fingers off then they would move to the next finger. That's and the next thing and the next finger the average person who made it out of the chosen reservoir only had six fingers left while they were there for so long in that situation. So when you watch the medal of honor series, and you see the Korean war episode. There is a certain aspect. I think of the Korean war was so bad that that's why it was never talked about like whenever people came home. A lot of it was more fatigue from what happened in World War Two. But a lot of it was this was such a devastating war that it's it was uncomfortable to speak of because you can't imagine your family members having to be out there in thirty five degree below weather. Thousands upon thousands. I believe it was twenty thousand off the top of my head. I believe twenty thousand died in the chosen reservoir alone. And that was the fourth worst battle of the Korean war. So when you think about that, and you watch those shows the valor that the men and women displayed at that time in Korea was unbelievable. So to the sergeant major into the master guns who I believe he was actually Master Sergeant who died this week. All right. I think that he does type of things are heroism that we will never be able to understand again in modern warfare. Because it's not what we do. And I say all that. Well, yeah, we do we do tie Carter. Did it quite Roma? Shay. Did it Kyle carpenter? Did it? We are very lucky to live in a place where rough men and women with guns are ready to stand the watch. And I think way to the way we started this episode. The military is not perfect. And there are we're not these magical. Human beings are always honorable and always do the right thing. But they're also on the flip side of that goin- men like this who and women like this who are there. And who I think Trump that a million times who? Yeah, you're absolutely right. And I'm really looking forward to us to really delve into the the medal of honor series starting next week a believe or maybe actually the week after next week's going to be thanksgiving. So we'll probably only have one episode next week if I would have to make a guess right now. I don't know. We'll see. But southern trait..

"Go wall to. Michael. All right now in zero blog thirty very special guest for me personally, this guy, flew all the way from Salt Lake City to Hoboken, New Jersey, just for this twenty minute interview. And then he's getting back on the plane and going home. Now he's here to visit. So I'm actually interviewing my battle buddy from Iraq. Rob rob welcome to zero block thirty dude. Thank you. Thank you. Appreciate you guys ever me here. It's got to be interesting now because you just started recently listening to this show. Right, right. So it's like it's a history lesson for me because I'm I'm on episode twenty four. Yeah. And I'm not jumping ahead. And so when I read on the social media that you guys were putting out to episodes. Never gonna catch. But I've taken measures to make sure I do I that's good. So let let's let's start at the beginning. Because because we met in Iraq. I didn't know you prior to meeting you in country, but let's just start with. How did you get to the army? Okay. So why why did you join the army? All right. I'm not I'm not a hero patriot guy. Like just to come come forward. My dad he had a pretty strict rule about going to college high school, and I knew I was going to college. And I knew I had to figure out a way to pay for it. And my brother being intelligent got all kinds of scholarships and went to private Catholic school in Utah. And they funneled the west coast conference schools, so Gonzaga Pepperdine. USD couple of the school. So I wouldn't visit all those schools. I applied all those schools, but my brother ended up going on. So I'd go up there and visit him, and they have a big ROTC department there. So I just kind of stopped in and said he like I'm gonna apply here. What's this ROTC thing all about and at that time, Gonzaga was just starting to come into its own and national prominence prominence through basketball? I would say maybe a little bit before they're a little couple years before like when my brother was graduating they had made the Sweet Sixteen right? But don't call me on those exact facts, but you're a big basketball yet. So it's not like was that deciding factor. No, no..

"All right. Before we get into our interview with Malcolm Nance, I wanted to talk a little bit about the valor and the work that goes into repairing the damage that happens in a hurricane hurricane, Michael, because our good buddies down at ten door force base are going through it. I don't know if you've seen the videos Kate of them or not, but those videos of ten dollar force based on what is going on there has been mind blowing. I mean, you have their f. eighteens or turned over almost every I think the commander of the base every single roof of every single building was greatly damaged or completely destroyed. It's gonna take them a long time to recover, and that's a lot of man and woman hours that goes into that and not to mention who knows what secure things they have on that based on what things they need to immediately jump in there and make sure that things are secure. I mean, there's even. Okay. So so you I want to interrupt you because you were a physical security specialist that was an extra MOS that you had on top of. Being an MP I saw earlier today a video of drone footage going out of the entire base like two civilians being tweeted on Twitter. What do you think about drone footage of the entire base going out and that public and all of its weak points right now, which is everything like everything is falling apart. I have faith that the air force will take care of it. We'll make sure I have no doubt right now. They have extra security on the premises and all around it. So yes, I'm sure anyone now can look on Google maps and see that kind of stuff anyway. So I, I don't know. I think it's okay because they have so much extra security might be even more difficult to know the weak points now because they're really switching it up on you, you know? So yeah, but it's it's tough, the families. I mean, it's not even just like the military operations, but there are people who live on base there and all those different types of things to this is a terrible situation. The thing that really caught my eye from that flyover. Was the flipped over. I think it was a fifteen that were on static display at Tyndall the base for talking about the those planes way like twenty tonnes. That's huge. So I mean those aircraft to their stationary there that I'm assuming they're chain down in some way, whatever to flip over twenty tons. And we were talking about when we went on the Starbucks base tour and we went to, I fly with the veterans from Dallas. That was what one hundred thirty miles an hour. And we were flying in the air like we were nothing. But I mean I weigh I weigh one twenty one forty, five and nothing. Flinging around like crazy. So, and and I mean, I'm a solid two hundred and twenty LB's fifteen ish. So I mean threw me up there too. Just a terrible situation. Obviously category four Cain, you guys have thoughts. We didn't want to end the episode before that the army corps of engineers, they're going to be covering tens of thousands of rooftops. They are going to be helping people out all over the country who are affected by this and they always do such a good job. The national guard, the army corps of engineers, so shout out to you guys. Big shutout. All right. We're going to move into our interview with Malcolm Nance. He's an American author and immediate commentator on terrorism intelligence. Insurgency and torture has specialization actually isn't it? No shit ten about it. He is a former United States navy sailor. He's a senior chief petty officers, specialize in navy, cryptology, incredibly knowledgeable. Human being. We just jump right into. It's gonna seem choppy, but Malcolm a different breed of dude, and he was, he was awesome. So we just hopped right into the conversation. So here it is we're going to hop into Prickett subject. I, which one do you want? Let's do Saudi because it's more. Okay. All right. So what's going on in Saudi Arabia? Because this is what people really confused. Certainly with with this situation with the Washington Post reporter, Jamal kosh hoagie who apparently may have been disappeared by the go Saudi government. What we can say that let's rewind and look geographically and politically at who the Saudis are right there..

And then when this thing happen. Yeah, I'm with you. I don't really like the way it looks. I mean, right. It's nice attempt at a symbol to say that, hey, you can knock us down, but we're gonna come right back up at the same time. I would agree with your sentiment that it's not. I don't think it's the best way that they could have done that and cons like grew up across like. So I grew up across the river in Brooklyn as you know, from our food tied do, and by the way it was a very detailed food. So I think we got into the things. So Keeton chops again, intimate because cons wasn't invited to like exactly where I was. I stared across and I went to high school in lower Laurie side, like I said across Manhattan, and I looked at those goddamn buildings and I didn't wonder at every day, but with them not there now. It's crazy. Yes, very, you're always to see him an old TV shows and movies. Yeah, right. So for thirty years to see them and then for less seventeen, not. And instead now seeing this thing, I just don't think it. It's not the skyline like the way that. The skyline used to be. And even the newer stuff that goes up that I think kind of doesn't belong to the skyline because I'm an old man like the way the skyline used to be to have that anchor like those two towers anchor and now not like now to have that other thing. It doesn't bother me that fight is built up so much and all the millennials live there or not like not even the millennials, but like the. The people in the financial industry who just started, they all have apartments right back where I trade it. Yeah, and you know that whole. I mean, there are people who sold houses when they found out it was on an Indian burial ground. I mean, they are on top of the detritus of thousands of dead bodies. So like I never really felt strongly about that. That's, that's fine. But the tower itself, the freedom tower itself bugs me about this statue. I think it's such a cool statute, the horse soldier memorial statue, have you seen how I don't know. It's a statute that memorialize is our special operations soldiers who were the first ones to go into Afghanistan. October of two thousand one right after nine eleven, and they had nationally just was book written. Twelve strong movie was made twelve strong with these guys went in with on horseback really primitive just because that was the only way that they could get to the enemy. So my question to you though, is, what do you think about the military in general? In our response. Since nine, eleven? Because I don't think you have much military your family being the son of immigrants done. Right. So what was your feeling about the military prior Jew and then post nine eleven? So I so I've always had an overwhelming respect for the military. When my dad came over us nineteen came over from Ireland and. But my mom came over when she was much younger, she was twelve or thirteen. So she actually grew up twelve thirteen on and her brother want him going Vietnam and doing a bunch of tours and became a sniper marine sniper. And then when he came back, he was he was damaged goods, right?.

"I don't think so. Not at thirty six. It's not not at thirty six. There's nothing special. Everybody's freaking out about reas birthday because it's twenty one. And then I'm just sad sack. Sally sex gives a shit. Yeah, nothing. Nothing's good again until I guess forty when they can make something of it, but thirty six is just like, oh, okay, Chaffetz his birthday next. And last night he was like, I was like, what are you going to do for the big day? And he's like, I'm like, go out and get myself a coconut cream pie. Just made me so sad like, oh, did you guys ever have a birthday in the military that you had anything in particular happen to you because it was your birthday? Nope, not me. I was. I was in Volusia for my. I don't remember what twenty fifth birthday I believe it was and it was like five days before I got shot. It was my first thing doing anything. With reconnaissance men. And so they have a tradition that when it's your birthday, they take their flippers the Swinton's and binge over in swat you pretty fucking hard with the swim. Fins in my legs were Bruce to absolute hell from like my asshole to my knees of from just getting beat. They just like to beat you up. Yes, that's weird thing like the beat you. I think it's just the military in general. I turned twenty four in Iraq. I got ambushed tackled tape to a poll Mike. My soldiers new. I didn't like coffee, so they poured very ice cold water and then just ground up coffee. All over me. Put shaving cream over may and again, like the drink coffee or yet like to touch the coffee grounds. Now, I just didn't like the. I don't drink coffee now. I don't like I don't really care for the taste or the smell even so they knew that. So they thought it would annoy me if they poured coffee grounds all over me, which what do you get it. Starbucks. I've seen you with like Starbucks Cup. I t you get to drink tea? Yeah. What a fancy boy move. Oh, you know it, you know it, but and then each one, by one they stood in line came and got one punch on my arm. And you know they didn't really hold back. Well, actually, now that you say, I have a way cuter birthday story than both of yours when I was in Afghanistan on my second deployment, it was a way fluffier deployment. I was on camp leather neck and they have like pizza places and coffee bean and tea leaf, isn't that so ridiculous how, how drastic the difference can be on it if women between a major base and annouced. Yeah, and I had like serious foam. Oh, when I saw people going outside the wire, I'm like, I'm stuck on this like whatever. But I wasn't complaining when I was eating the pizza, but I turned, I think I turned twenty three or twenty four, I forget, but I worked very closely with the Afghan interpreters because part of my job was vetting third country nationals at for jobs on the base and stuff like that for physical security kind of stuff. And we had all become really good friends throughout the time. So they threw me a surprise. Birthday party on my birthday, and they had all gone to the Afghan bizarre. Bought me all these neat little like, so I still have all these little Afghan trinkets. They got a giant pizza. I sound like such a Pogue telling the story, but it's true even had a cake for me somehow because the flights coming in, it was not unfortunately, but there would be flights that coming in all the time. So they had arranged like a friend of a friend was coming in from like Dubai or somewhere where they had a Dunkin donuts even brought me like Dunkin donuts into the country. Yes, it was like a really fancy very fancy. So I did not get tied to a pole and beaten with flippers, but. Like. Is your birthday, Connor. Did you get any gifts while your birthday in Iraq? People at home sent me things. And in fact, the girl I was dating at the time somehow made a cake and sent that that I actually it somehow kept in the mail..

"Now joe block thirty i like to welcome a a friend of the program one of the things i really like about zero block thirty is that we have a lot of active duty listeners and active duty people in general are really passionate about the people that they serve with a lot of times we have to keep under wraps how much we actually cared about each other we don't talk about policies we don't talk about politics but we talk about our love for each other mike it's about this start talking in just a second he reached out to us when one of his buddies was killed in a tragic accident just last week so we wanted to bring him on for bad ass of the week so he could talk about his buddy mike ding so much for taking time to join us today thanks for having me chaps so give us a little bit about your background i i am army one officer so a lot of people really know what we are kind of a mixed between regular arlo regular line officer your lieutenants captains and the enlisted side so it aviator we can think of us as we do most of the flying proper jobs to be the pilots where the regular lieutenants captains they're more focused on the broader picture the overall management with flying maybe a secondary duty now i'm firmly on the record as saying that i hate officers there is a caveat to that i love worn officers and always have i feel like that's the case with most enlisted people because we know that you guys were once one of us that you've been there same thing goes for mustangs if you're a mustang which is like a enlisted guy that goes regular officer i like you to just not the straight up officers i don't like those fucks but a warrant officer.

"Is advantages that date because we have nightvision goggles we have thermal vision goggles we can see everything when the enemy has that as well and they know the terrain much better than we do it kinda shifts the really the advantage that we have on the ground whenever you're fighting i mean we still have superior weapons but them having nightvision goggles really hurts our guide on the ground so the type of things make it really dangerous yeah absolutely and i know for us forces the very limited view that are going outside the wire on these missions uh you know i won't go into the details obviously book from what i was told laws over there they're shifting their their tdp their tactics techniques and procedures on how to deal with the fact that the enemy also has nightvision now and they're they're mitigating that to a certain degree but certainly doesn't make going out on these missions any easier uh no ahead and them it agility to get we've seen videos a um more so isis than the taliban but the ability to have drawn that drop dis on people to that's incredibly scary because we own the sky in every single conflict that we've been been in for the last thirty years we've on the sky completely and having even having to look up in the fear of something beside a mortar dropping on your head is scary i mean that's a scary scary com concept ahead that they have essentially drones that they could buy from amazon yeah absolutely and uh you know the thing with all of that is you know that's the reason the commandos and everything like that are doing the you know it's something like seventy percent of combat operations in afghanistan right now but the police an end the regular ana it you know those guys they don't have nightvision to counter as well they don't have the better rifles and stuff like you're seeing from some of these taliban ride units which like their version of the know special horses or something uh they don't have that subs so when you see you you're seeing entire checkpoints just get completely wiped out by some of these taliban units because they just there's no way to outfit every soldier in the.
