That they've been chased for so many years getting there That was a lot of fun to watch them. Finally do that. You know. I know you dave roberts very well and to see him finally get that trophy in his hands a really really special moment for them. You know it was. You know dave roberts is one of the best people. And he's become a tremendous manager and audi audience not root for a guy like that and you know meet personally. I went out to la for a very short stint in my career. Got a chance to kind of experienced the dodger way so i have to say. I was rooting for them. You know it's a really really good classy organization that really cares about their players. It's finally great to see them. After a little bit of a drought you know bring net championship back home. And what at the end of the day to if they get a little extra money and they can fix the traffic situation. Getting out of dodger stadium. That would be a really really great thing too. Speaking of personally two thousand eighteen inducted into the hall of fame. Since that's happened you had this incredible career. You deserve every moment of it. What changed after that moment where you got inducted in the hall of fame. I think what's changed is the fact that you get to you know once a year go being fraternity of an incredible list of guys that have played the game you not. I've been very fortunate to have great teammates To me now being a part of the mlb network and the end in giving getting a chance to go there every july. you know. It's kind of what we call you know that baseball family. You don when you can add. New york is in new people to your baseball family. I think it's so great honestly i. I don't know if anything's changed in my life. But i i just know that it's it's it's an honor it's It's great to go every year when you do get to see the lights of hank aaron and all the great players that play this game. It's very humbling. You know but it's also it's a great experience to meet the new guys that elected and i think the hall of fame does a fabulous job at just making sure families or taking care of that that do come in for the first time. So it's i continue to continue to love that and see how that goals as the years. Go by yeah. I'm so happy for you. Just you deserve every bit of it. Incredible career. I always said that you know the best players in the game. I always feel like yes talented for sure. But they're the most prepared. They work the hardest. They're the guys in the cage. There are the guys run in the polls or the guys doing the extra and that doesn't stop once you become a hall of famer you have to give a speech and i just. I know this story and i want you to share with people what went into giving your speech. And how did you prepare for that. Because that's not an easy thing to do when you walk out on that stage at cooperstown and speak to all those fans that are there for you so so when i got the big leagues you know. I was always a guy on preparation. If i was facing you ryan dempster. If i was facing john lester. I'll always wanted to be prepared every day. I still do that to this day. Even with this interview coming into this. You wanna be prepared so obviously you don't win elected and knowing that i had a full year to prepare. I would go out you know. I think it was starting in may june. I would go out and read my speech outside. And i put my mic speech in a hedge bush in just basically like i was outside wall. Then meet about two weeks before the induction. I called the hall of fame. And i told jeff idelson i said i love to fly in and kind of read and do my speech in the setting. That is gonna be where it's at. So i flew in for twenty four hours did it and i i have to tell you you have in the hall of fame there. They were all sitting out in front of me. As i was giving my speech you know it was it was it was very intense. I picked that prepared me to a degree for that special day in july. Two weeks later. When i got to do it in front of you know seventy thousand people which you know. It's like anything you know this as a pitcher inner you know the manager as a coach. Anything you do. You want to be prepared in done your homework going in. I really good about doing that. Because i left. Lafayette you don turn it was. It was a special day. But the main thing i think was more special is i got to observe my family and friends enjoy that day as much as i did and it was an incredible speech and just so thoughtful and precise i was on. I'm curious is at any point. Any of your neighbors. Like maybe like talk to your wife and be like hey gyms talking to himself a lot out in the backyard. Yeah jim okay. Now one of the things because we give the speech outdoors you know and i wanted to do it in a setting that you know that was outdoor and instead of doing it inside all the time you know. Every two days. I would walk outside. Put my speech in leads. Bush below me in. I would look up. Read look up because they don't want you to just remember your speech. They encourage you to actually read from what you've worked hard to prepare for. And i felt like. I was really well prepared. And you know there's nothing that beats the actual day of the of the anxiety. The jitters that we call it boy. I felt really good going in good for you and you know i know you very well and and people who know you and watch you with your analysts. Work that you do on tv. You love the game of baseball. You love talking baseball and talking hitting where did that come from. You know and what drives you to continue to do that to me. I think it's it's well that comes from charlie manual. I was very blessed to be around. Charlie who loved to talk hitting We worked at our craft. You know we prepared every day. Whoever was pitching that day we would have a game plan if if we were facing a sinker baller and we add or left-handers in our lineup. Our goal at day was was to be thinking about hitting the ball left center and stain on that sinker. If we had a guy that had a tremendous change up that didn't thought for a lot of strikes. We would eliminate that pitch and prepare for the pitches that we knew. We could handle and succeed on and you know as we talked. Preparation is everything. I think that is one thing. Stay in the game. You know with my job at the white sox and then now now being the network everything is about preparation when you walk into. Mlb network damp in. You know this because you do a fabulous job you know. It's it's it's not just showing up in going live and talking. It's doing your research. It's understanding that specific player. I think were a platform or if a guy's struggling we don't wanna let the baseball world. No you know like an and get on him for struggling. We want to help him. And maybe offer things that meet us in our resume in the past and maybe help that guy long-term and point out things that can help help each player so our platform is big. It's it's also big with the us with young kids and one of the greatest things on my job. When i'm flying in and out of o'hare and i'll get a dad that comes up to me in a son that says thank you mr told me i. I tried that drill that you recommended on the network. And i used it. And i got like three or four hits to me. That's the greatest gift of what we do. And i just think it's were very lucky. You and i have to be able to call that a place that we can as you're doing that marquee to use our resources and our platform to help people know and understand the game better uk. I couldn't agree with you more. You know we've been position we've been through those struggles so you know it's about trying to help those players and help the future generation. That's coming up. If they can learn a little something you work with the white sox you will be network as an analyst. But you're a special assistant with the white sox. How much fun is that to be able to be with those guys on the field. I know how much you loved the cage. Talk about what you get to do with these young players and how you get to impact them so so as you know again you know the same thing you know when you go to spray trading and you're around the game i think the biggest thing we miss the most is that klaus kind of camaraderie that rebuild have built for years. And you know getting an opportunity when i retired. The white sox reached out to me to come aboard of one of my biggest things was being around hall being around. My kids obviously playing twenty plus years in the big leagues. I wanted that time to be retired. But i was very fortunate that they brought me a bored day. They let me be around my son's youth baseball games as mike daughter. Has you almost turned eighteen. Being around her she's been a you know in in the in the theater world. She's a singer. So you know being around. That has been so special. And i feel. I feel lucky that the white sox have let me do that but the best part of this damp is when you go out when you're assigned okay go down to charlotte or go down the canal and in you know just spend three or four days in you get to just half conversation to me. The biggest part of my job is when i go down to instantly have a relationship with in my case. The hidden instructor understand what they're doing. Daily with these guys take notes live process and inform a game of attack. How you want to make that player better and the communication of each player knowing. Hey who needs a pat on the back. Yup who you know who needs motivation an understanding but there's no greater gift than to sit in amsterdam's and watch a minor league game and to know that you may be having a little bit of input to help that kid succeed and as we no longer play you know. Think about it you know. It's now about our younger kids and our kids that are trying to grow into major league players. And in i will say this you not been a part of this now for almost seven years in an to watch the process that we've now gone down to where we're at as an organization. It's really a lot of fun. It reminds me a lot in a lotta ways where the cubs were you know in two thousand fifteen leading in sixty yup with a core group of kids that are ready to make impact let the world know who they are and you see these core group of kids you see them in the minor league levels as it was happening then and be happening now. Who are the guys to you that stood out. We're like oh this guy winning. Mvp this guy could be rookie of the year man. There's a bunch of women. It's not only just position players. It's you know watching giolito watching gain. Donning you know dylan cease when we made that trade him any loy yup Louis robert when. I seen louis robert the first time i mean this was you know he check off. All the boxes ball sound different dribble. The ball sounds different off his ballad. The ball sounds different. And you got to remember. I was apart of a of a great organization in the nineties in cleveland where we have manny ramirez. We at guys that came to the big leagues at a young age and were given an opportunity. But but we had guys sitting in the minor leagues waiting. The take guard jobs. Now you know. The ritchie saxon. And the brian giles These guys were tremendous. You guys are minor league system. It reminds me a lot of that. Now as we lead into this this hopefully winning stage of war. We're going speaking of fun competitive. It's always fun. When the white sox and cubs are good at the same time because of the rivalry. And and i say rival arena. Sense a city rivalry. It's not a baseball rivalry in the you play each other six times during the year. I feel like such a great time during the year because you got the south side versus the north side cubs fans and white sox fans and it is so i enjoyed it so much. How much did you love playing those games whether it was on the south side or at wrigley field. I absolutely loved it. You know it was for me. You know playing in cleveland. Ohio cup. With the reds. And then you know when. I was with the socks and in winter wrigley for the first time and experience that it was like whoa. This is real. This is this is intense and not that there was any bitter feelings to the cubs players. It was you know in living here. The fans are the ones that created. This which i think is so great living here in the winter and knowing how the south side and the north side that back and forth a go you two years ago when all when we were rebuilding the cubs. Were really really good. I said to myself. I can't wait for the day when both of our teams are really good and you know it might being one of the better cities now of baseball competition between two teams in the city. That baseball has and i. It's just gonna be a fun time. We we love it. As far as where we're at and i know i know the cubs of ever really done a fine job with everything they've done as well so will it'll be exciting to just let that play out while we've had a ton of find sitting down talking with you baseball and life in your hall of fame stuff you've had this incredible career. Jim you hit a ton of homers man. I want to jog inside your brain i wanted. I wanna see how much you can remember. This is who served up my homers. Okay now six hundred and twelve homers. This what i did. Cherry pick a few and i figured we could try and knock them out and see how well you remember who took deep by the way. I didn't make the list which is really really reassuring are about six hundred twelve homers. There were two other people though. So here we go all right. I'm not number one on the list. Your very first homer you gave up. Who is it. steve thought. Well steve far. It was in yankee stadium. It was far too. It was a bomb. We'll go with that one number. Three hundred number. Three hundred was my buddy mark. Clark was milton all. No you're right you're right. It was milton. I got so clark was two hundred. I believe in milton was three bad. I should've went more in numerical order. But that's alright you're one you're one for two right now. Number four hundred number. Four hundred was one. Eva yes sir. Cincinnati reds. I have a feeling that most of these are apple bombs to. I should've looked them up on video a lot. A lot of believe it or not a lot of my big homers word left kind of standard left sanitary at these. That means i was staying on the ball. Try not to get too excited to get to that milestone. i see a number. this is a good one. This is a walk off at us. Cellular member of the white sox number five hundred dustin moseley. I can't get one by got one by it. I think that was a little mishap. All right number six hundred number. Six hundred was daniel schleyer son of former. Nfl player mark shrillest. So you say yes all right. So you're you're killing it like we said i mean. Just he's prepared. I mean that's just what he does he just. He knows exactly what's going on. I didn't prep on any of these by the way all right. I got two more for you all right last last one of the individual home runs number one seventy five. It's the longest home run in jacob field slash progressive field history number. One five hundred eleven feet folks. That's a long ways jim. It was don lingered. Day in cleveland and the boat was carrying really well that day. I mean five hundred. That's some babe. Ruth s some josh gibson. I seem over your left shoulder. Some josh gibson stuff right there. Five hundred eleven feet. Yeah amazing stuff all right so you get all these homers a ton of them.

RWT8 Reminiscing with Tom - Watch your toes
"I still have sin with my grandfather telling me stories of old the older in bet as used to say. Well, he's no longer here to share those stories and I wish. I'd catalog. That's why I felt such an affinity to thome listener from Alabama now living in Berlin who started sending US recordings of memories of growing up. Enjoyed this shirt true story read by. Tom. Himself in this special edition of the show way calling reminiscent with. Tom. Conversation with my cousin Fred the other day. I mentioned about growing up horror and not really knowing it. He said that where we lived everyone was equally poor and that is the reason we never noticed our status. I had two cousins of approximately the same age and size, and that was where I always expected my next article of clothing from. With one exception. My Grandmother. She could so anything on that old sewing machine. Powered by her feet on the treadle. She mostly made the shirts shorts from flour sacks. Yes. You heard it. Right flour sacks. She bought her flower in large sacks or bags. If you WANNA, call it depending on where you lip. The Sankt had different patterns and designs on them and for. US those days we could wait for the contents to be used up so we can get the next shirt. Or for the girls the next dress. Many of you ask, why would a person is so much flour at once? Those days. The Lady of the House always cooked and baked from scratch. The only prepared foods were canned goods occasionally nothing frozen and forget about the idea of microwave. Hours were spent in the kitchen. Grandmother would bake only on Saturdays. To avoid as much work on Sundays due to her religious convictions. Now, getting back to. hand-me-downs unfortunately for my brothers, they were too young for my hand me downs. So what is the end of the line the clothing? Never knew where mom passed my old clothes onto a probably just wore them out. My mom was very good at taking worn out items, cutting them into patterns and making quilts out of them in the south. Nothing went to waste. Even hard were slaughtered. Every bit of that heart was used nothing there went to waste either my uncle price told me that even the squeal was turned into a song. Wasteful we weren't. There were things that we did wish for though for example, a red Ryder BB gun. Are they unimaginable icicle. Now, most spies it was those days unless you got luxurious model didn't have a chain guard to keep you pants leg from getting caught in the chain and sprocket. So you always had to roll up. Your right. Pants leg into cuff. Naturally in my neighborhood that cuff in the right pants leg meant you had status you had a bicycle things. We could never afford a bicycle in my family. So I came up with this ingenious idea to always have a cuff in my pants and when I went to school. I was a man of the hour. And no one ever caught on to my deception badly because we managed to move every three or four months. My cousin Fred got a bicycle of his own. I couldn't believe it. He would ride me all over the neighborhood sitting on the handlebars. Now there was a Turpentine plant near my grandmother's house and it had a very steep hill. That ended at the end of the road, and when you got there yet make a media left turn or right turn. Or straight ahead into. The Woods. I remember seeing on handlebar with bare feet on the left and right lug nuts. The front. Wheel. Starting at the top of the Hill Fred reminded me to what's your toes Tommy. And woodhall. Bogies. Down the hill and top speed. Not slowing down even when he had to make a left turn to grandmother's house. He didn't have a bicycle. But I'm sure that everyone in the neighborhood could hear my screen the whole way down. Somehow we always made it home. And to this day, I, still have all my toes. Thanks to read. This is. Watch your toes Tommy sincerely. Tune in again next time for more reminiscing Tom.

So I gave it away. Well, I haven't decided. I would say the crown of over the bar there such Bravo Hollick's. They could probably make a better pump teeny than Jack scan. And so so Bravo's official podcasts. The daily dish Megan cigar, and Eric j. Every thursday. Let's get started. A we have been really valley over here that lady Gaga Selena Gomez. And my lease IRAs have all been at Tom last few weeks. I know like the story. Can you believe that came out? Nobody knew anything about it. Actually, we did all know about that sheet. No when she was there. She was very quiet. She was Ivan. Yeah. And then she was in Thome Thome, and they would know paparazzi too. Which is just do, you know Miley know, that you obviously know Gaga. Yeah. No. I think she's a friend of sheen, and she came in and she was dancing on the table, which and my lead tweeted, your tagline the other day, I know at least somebody likes it, right? Tonight to re rock to look that was all boob and even Renna was taken aback. I liked the top. I like, you know, what I like it. Sure reaction tonight to Camille talking crap about your dentistry and breath. Also, she was a new dental has. Okay. So I haven't seen the episode, but I did not watch. Do you have any apart from that one scene the kitchen scene? I don't mean buying the kitchen mean other kitchens. No, I she did say in Vegas that she said something really mean about me, my ceiling opening of your of your place. To friend of mine said something really bad about feel really bad about. But you can't even seem like I'm she should focus more on what comes out of her mouth and less than what's mine. Right. Yeah. Mike comes abuse. Check them out. You showed me before I see your teeth that I don't see your gums how she know anything about anything. They will done so many things to themselves. You know, they've had full-body lifers. They've had. Okay. Some of them have had complete head transplants. You don't even recognize things would I ever mentioned it Norville now. Your questions for LV or pouring in. But before we get to those. Here's what three things I am obsessed with tonight. I as teased at the beginning of the season on last week's Beverly Hills. We saw Lisa and Kyle come to blows and watch twelve years of friendship. Get villa roasted watch read the article it sounds like it comes from your camp. A story to radar line. Yes, -tory. Yes. What are you going to say? Yes, aren't did something if I didn't do it. I'm with a tech. Segregate maybe about your image than your friendships. I swear on my children's life, you Fred. Get out. Fight. This is over. Hard times to tell me I am Eliah done by car. Okay. Upsetting the watch. I love your friendship with Kyle. I go to WWAFL dot TV to tell us whose side are you on Kyle or Lisa? Do you really think this is? No, I just seen seen of the sues longtime ago seven months ago, but you know, clearly, she's not mourning the friendship because of this whole kind of nonsense. It was on social media about goodbye Kyle. And you know, it was just okay. It would have been funny. Maybe I mean, it was small, but it would have been funny. Maybe if the friendship of been salvage it hasn't. So you know, I it's is being very sad. But you know, I would never accuse somebody of doing anything unless I have proof because we've all had accusations thrown out there unless you have proof when you swear on your children's life to me is sacrilege you're holding your children. I've not wanna attempt fate of the two people people. The I love Angie for people. I love than anything in the world. I'm Lisa side on this. Pretty clear that you were done talking to Kyle. But Kyle and the rest of the group still had a lot to say, let's take a look and get your reaction on the flipside Tig look at Lisa's house. He was yelling at you. And he said to me, your he liar. It's not brench shit. That's I'm shocked that the way that can spoke to you. That's totally unacceptable heated with Lisa and heated with Ken. And then they threw her out of the house. There must be devastating for Carl fat's pretty major. This is another level. Do you think I should talk to Lisa Vander pump to be nice? She did this. She played a dirty talking to her until I went to her house. And then all of a sudden, everyone got cut off if Lisa's feelings are hurt just speak to you. But only when she feels like keeping punished. Hasn't that long? She comes from how long are known to read a little bit too long. I think maybe I didn't I've known peak. Friendship was started with PK. Yeah. Absolutely. But I made that very clear to the I kinda grew to love her, you know, because she was PK's wife, but I don't know it's mess circuit. It was recently reported that Lucy Lucy, apple juice has been happily adopted into a new home and has even been given the new moniker Lulu. So here's what while we take a moment to more in the fact that Lulu no longer has the best dog name in the history of all dogs names. Maybe with the exception of Gygi. I also wanna put some of the unanswered questions about puppy gate to rest. Do you believe that door re believed she was giving the dog to a loving safe, permanent home? Well, I think maybe she was told that it was going to a nice home. I don't I don't know. I don't think she really knew the woman. I don't think there was any intent here. I've said that from the beginning John lizard, put very damaging words in your mouth when he claimed you gave the orders for him to text those things to teddy. Why continue to let him work for vendor? Pump dogs Twenty-three is old his working for five. Oh, one C three non profit charity is I'm not gonna fight him over him kind of, you know, getting dotes in Bush gossiping. I mean, I it's often. I find him as the one person that you feel is most to blame for this situation escalating to the point where all these friendships crumbling. Well, I mean, clearly if to re had done the right thing, then none of this would have happened from not saying she's to blame. She's the catalyst for I think it should have ended when Jerry and PK an can I went to to lunch. And we said, okay. That's it is dumb. But everybody else gets. Let's bring it up bring out this bringing up. So I think everybody's gonna push the c o of radar online. Came forward and said that you have never been in anonymous source for the website who you the story. Do you think that it could have come from someone in your camp in? It was was was weighted towards positive information about Bandra pump dogs in the work that you've done with dogs, which is part of the reason that the women thought that it came from your on a second where five wants to three where like a very serious organizing that relies on kind of big sponsors. And donors any of this nonsense is really negative publicity is not something that we won't be involved in do. I think it would do you think it came from? I mean, I think it's from somebody that doesn't wish we will. But but the article was positive towards your work with dog then it flipped into. I mean, I don't need that kind of negativity. I don't need that kind of positivity. You know, I it just I don't know. I think maybe somebody that wanted to throw me on. All right. Thank you very much. God, I've so many questions for you. And what do you miss the most about your friendship with Kyle? Well, I think we had a lot of fun together. No. So you haven't seen the episodes? I haven't seen anything you haven't saw anything, but the fight but the fight because it's interesting because through it all she was really playing the middle the entire time. I think Holloway's does that doesn't shape wouldn't respect that about her. I mean, I think you stand up for them. I mean, I've stood up for a when I've no idea whether she's right or wrong. Even from the first episode. You know, stunning blonde each commune say, I don't think she meant that letting the middle. I mean, she was she was she kind of was I mean she was taking up for trials offense defense. Get stuck up Rawls. So I feel going to be. So I feel going to be a friend to everybody, you know, like sometimes you launch. Nobody look I I don't know. Of course, I missed that friendship. But maybe it wasn't such good friendship off rules, and we have exhausted questions about the dog drama, although we probably haven't. But that isn't gonna keep us from asking Lisa about some other young pups who liked to hump chase tail and our time's not housebroken. You guessed it signed for Lisa. Take on all the vendor pump rules drama. Lisa reaction to LA freaking out on rock. Hell Billy Lee. And James at sir. James said come to you and said, I behave myself she was at fault. What did you think? When you saw that episode. Well, you know, I saw a lot about this whole social media. And you have to understand to every is thinking I'm seeing the same as them. And clearly, I'm not I had. No. So you saw the episode what when you saw. When you saw disappointing. But I do believe that law wasn't herself this year tool. Kadian Schwartz said some really cruel things to each other during their fight in Mexico. What was your rea-? She's demeaning his deck all the time. I doesn't work for God's sakes. I mean, I don't know you know, what that several Latian ship. I think they love each other. But sometimes they get it wrong. They really do. And I've tried to counsel them through that. But you know, the age old question has Jack's permanently changed for the better. Well, they say left doesn't change his spots. Maybe it's kind of painted over them for while. I think as we talked about this on the reunion that it self-serving to him because she is such good goal. And I think that's why loves us so much because he knows she's the best ever happened to the way that reunion. Reunion, a Ludd bath. But like a two minute. Yes. Why do you think even the mention of James is still such a trigger for Kristen? No, I think she's just like obsessed by him. I don't understand why. I mean, she started the season with I'm gonna get him. I'm going to take him down. Does that focus on something else? Reaction the sand of all in katie's big fight behind sir where he said to her, you know, you can you've called Lila whore. You've called all these people these horrible names and James calls you fat, and you freak out. There's a lot of hypocrisy and this group with very short memories, you know, because they do have that incredible kind of double standard, and I think to something sent he overreacted. But I do think his right. I mean, she said a lump stuff, you know, and and she did slightly provoked them. Look, I love KT. Sometimes it's now it's little law. I do how shot off season out shock for you. By the revelation that Arianna and LA LA hooked up in the back seat of sandals. Come on if into in the back of somebody's call. Why would it be boyfriends? Right. Thank you very much. The LBC Anderson four wants to know when the last time you guys spoke to PK was. Oh, well, you'll see it in the next that was that was the last time. Oh, no. He did come to Ken Poder lounge. And he said, oh, I guess you talking to me. And then he said he was going to have a cigarette. Jim Lou wants to know if it's true that Teddy's brother is dating an employee vendor pump dogs. Yeah. He continued to work for me for while off to the whole Gasco between teddy because it's brother, it's not us. I'm not gonna buy him for you know, it's not anything to do with them. But yeah, he's dating. Let's go to Thomas from Cincinnati Thomas. What your question? Hey, daddy, Cohen super sexy. I like that. Thanks and L VP love you. You are the true Queen Beverly Hills of our health thirsty palates that crown but my question for you is what made you cut off communication with the rest of the women after your blow Kyle well because she said that they all believe that. And I felt that I kind of been bombarded in the Bahamas and that time I was in a place in my life. That was kinda desperately searching for happiness, and I talked to you about that prior to going back to the show, and I just felt very emotional very rule. And when she said, well, we all believe so you know, what paints for this season for through this season six it'd be a different thing. It's been made. Yeah. Through several sees Sinisi accusation to make isn't it because, you know, nobody's really going to refuse it. And in fact, I was really really on that the fact that Dylan Howard came out and said, this is not true. But. The same are the full episode because you would have seen Kyle trying to defend you before she went over to your you showed a clip of her try of coca into my house in your call with her trying to defend me. So on a C. Those types must be scant on the ground. I don't want to call anybody out. But that clip came from a sane where she was defending Renna. Sorry wrong. Lisa though. But she is defending you will know telling the clip, she's not watch the they got it wrong. What she episode Beverly Hills Ridha and Camille take opposite stances on the Brett Kavanagh supreme court hearing. Yes, it's strange and fascinating as it sounds. Here's a sneak peek cabinet here here, Dr came out. I think she's changing everything you didn't have enough evidence. I'm at them too. Her though, not believe this woman. We don't know if for sure it happened or not she's been attacked. I would think you would be more empathetic time know what it feels like to be wrongfully accused, and you million all over the world not that kind freight the world for life. I've been a victim of this mirror campaign. Call. The phone lines are blowing up. Let's go to Erin from Arizona. The love you so happy I got through with one of my favorite housewives police Vander pound. I just had a question earlier when Nina was on the show, she said, she reached out to Lisa fourth advice before pump open, and I guess she insinuated that though this base from her. So I just wanted to hear Lee action to that. I mean, a me, you know, we've pumped maybe six years. So that was the first time I've ever heard about it asked you about the space on the corner. And you said it's a crappy space maybe wall, maybe it was a car park, and it was a car parts. Have a designs on it. Did you did you get the idea to develop? From nina. Okay, right. Thirty. Thirty fifth rest on you know, also we had the same landlord as the headquarters, and it's also hundred yards from my restaurant. And there was also a lot of places down there. Nobody had thought really to turn the call Paul into restaurant because most people wouldn't go permission. You know? So it's the first time I heard about it. It's shocking to me reaction to the least Serena. Birthday message with the bag of pills. Well, I talked about it on tonight's episode and said that when she found out she felt horrible. What do you mean when she found out because you know, if she's in the same group as I am, and this was three months off to my brother, you know, accidentally took his life. How would she not know that? I mean, listen, I'm not saying she did it on purpose. But it was very insensitive. Okay. Because the way I interpreted the way my brother's son's interpreted the way my children interpreted, it's you know, happy birthday with a load of prescription pills. You know, just a few weeks or it was. Yeah. Well, it started Mosleh day Lisa's singer here tonight. We're going to do something special. As everyone knows there's a very special little guy in my life. Lisa you've been asking about him for months and at this point while sent you photos. We texted about him. I know you really really would love to see him. So I just want to say before I bring him out its way. His bedtime. I have no idea how he's going to act but Lisa I'm doing this just for you. I just Lisa with who. She thought was going to be my child. It was Walker who is also fast child first child. Yeah. By the way out to me because teddy to set up. I don't even like, that's crazy. That's crazy. She said it her blog that you. Eight dogs. I couldn't get rid of those three that sleeping my bed. Every night. We are also here behind the VAR with the host of the daily. Eric dagan? Okay. I'm by the way, I'm sorry that I cut off that serious. You were talking about something very serious. And I. Okay now. I know I okay. So let's go back to the phones Nick from Virginia. That was. Are you were you all Nick where you were you happy for that surprise the walking surprise kind of middle, man? Okay. All right. It's actually in from Dallas, Ian, Witcher question. He's grow walkers. You think? Yeah. Hey. Hi, I'm I'm obsessed with both of you. And Andy that beard is delicious. Daddy, lisa. My question. Wrong Ken to get involved. So heated turing your tile. Say it again. Do you think it was wrong with Ken to get involved in so heated during her fight with Kyle right worries? CO was saying I can't believe that canon got in your face like that. I've had kind of shouting the beach bitch, which I don't think can would ever say that about Kyle SEO kicked you out of there. If it was flipped would you? Everybody was upset. But I think hens very protective of me. But I also think that, you know, obviously, the scene was longer than you see because of the editing when you've all somebody go a couple of times, and then getting messages like, you know, my house, and it takes a lot for me sketch that point I mean, you've seen me for nine years is, you know, I was in a very sad place in somebody who you thinks your best friend. We just passed resolution poser one. We're ecstatic men's come to your house, and then go I think you'll lying. I mean, I'm sorry. But that's just not acceptable. If you're a friend and somebody's sweats on the children, don't you believe them, especially when you don't have any proof. It's such Bush. Let's go to Fred from one island. Fred what your question for Lisa? My question is how my question is Lisa. Why do you think all these despicable women on your cast are making a story seem like the victim when your purpose in life is the Ulan festival and getting it on the floor and protecting all the these animals lives. And I personally would like to say thank you so much for doing. So why would these women think that she has to be protected from a news story when she actually got an almost got the animal killed, which is your life's work. Thank you for that. With you to hold the time. You know, what I I'm never really going to have a go to reap because I think that she kind of it was a careless choice. I wrote that in my blog, and yes, it's been very unfortunate. And you'll right. We've saved over thousand dogs. We've just opened a sanctuary in China with three hundred dogs that we pulled out of their cages they've been cages this big for three years. So thank you between tensions dot. And I'm very proud of my five one c three and I take it very seriously. And when people like, oh, you want to shine a light on your phone Dacian? No, I don't you know. The Doreen job dumping. The three dog dumping story is not what I want to shine a light on on shine lifetime resolution poser one. I want to shine a light on the thousand dogs we've managed to save. And and everything that we going forward. I'm working with Ted toys now to support the pack cut, which is going to change, you know, the awful treatment and torture of animals set won't just a misdemeanor felony. Thank you so much for that. Because I truly appreciate that. You understand what we are trying to do? From Indiana Halonen which question. Hi, Andy, first of all read to that beautiful child of yours, even though he's a baby read to doing it. And I talked to him nonstop. And I almost brought him out tonight. But I brought the dog out. Shame. Shame on you. My question if anyone would appreciate that. It's lisa. I was so excited about that. I have to say I was little. I really want to know. Okay. Yes. Lot of what your question. My. Well, I have two questions. One is have any of the other housewives in other cities reached out to you Lisa and in support. No, I don't think. So. But I mean, some of them, I know, you know, just socially, and they're always very lovely to me. I have to say, you know, but no they happen. But that's okay. I would kind of appreciate my own costs mates reaching out really relevant. Just, you know techs in telling me, you know, what time with filming and I should come by beaten up again. You know, you know. That's when somebody says, oh, will I've I've reached out you know to. Oh, yeah. Oh, where we'll be there, you know, celebration mothers. I have four o'clock here. You know, you know, what was going on? That's not somebody him phone, or you know, talking to kind of off Cameron saying how you doing. What's your second question by question to her is do you know that I have you and your entire family on my prayer card? Do you are a true lady? And I will be your adopted. Lanta granny Lanta from Indiana. Everybody needs a Grammy. Land of. To say is the term support. I mean, I've just it's been overwhelming really has. And you know, it has been a very difficult year. But not just the awful kind of accusations. And what the cost of put me through. But just personally, and you know, we've had some times like with resolution poser and wonderful things opening bakers, and you know, great things have happened to. But it's been very very very stressful unto everybody that supported me, and there's been so many I see all on social media each everyone of you. I don't condone aggression to my costs mates to. I do condone that exactly sending whatever you want. But to you know, my cost nights, I don't condone that. But thank you for your support really land. Graham land of. Yeah. Deanna last. Call Allison from Louisiana. Is that right? Wow. Hey, allison. Hi, andy. How are you doing? Great Q your survey. Crepe my questions for Lisa. I love Lucy. You're an icon, you might clean Beverly shows. But my question is for the current season of the housewives, if you would've won housewife who would if I could slim if you could get rid of one house while get rid of one house live does it have to be one. Who would you get rid of? May have it. I don't know I've had about experience with all of them. Yeah. Sunny, Jordan tweeted, would you rather have a two hour dinner with brandy or an eight hour car ride with teddy tomorrow? Oh, I think to our brandy. Sounds fantastic. That's really funny. Are you officiating Jack's wedding? Well, Riley four one I'm not going to fiche. I don't do that. Joe gonna go. It's an. Combs are because I love, you know, I love them. I love each. And every one of them of quite say they were here last night. They were quite charming too. I'd love some old apart from maybe one or two of them. But I, but I think Jack's is so lucky to have her.

Our one on this Wednesday, Dan, Dan inch, Dan, Patrick show got a lot of things to talk about Patrick Mahomes the chiefs quarterback will join us coming up. Adrian Peterson will join us and hall of Famer. Jim Tony from the major league baseball network ill recap. What happened? Last night. Red Sox dropped the dodgers. They go up one, oh game to coming up tonight. We'll dissect that coming up in a moment. Say good morning to our radio French three hundred and thirty six cities around America. Our TV partners, the NBC sports network and also direct TV audience number channel. Two thirty. Nine danettes are here mclovin have a poll question. Got a stat of the day play of the day. All of that coming up. Blake Griffin dropping fifty on the seventy Sixers. Last night, limited basketball. The Lakers tried to get into the win column. This season. They got the Phoenix Suns coming up tonight last night too. Oh, baseball's. Premier pitchers squared off to great left-handers, Clayton Kershaw and Chris sale. And in today's game, you knew it was unlikely that these guys would go to deep into the game and feels like if you go five, it's like that's old school going nine. Both teams pulled the races in the fifth inning. Red Sox ended up winning eight four in what turned out to be a battle of the bullpens and it's become commonplace to turn over games to the pin early. I mean, we saw what happened with the Milwaukee Brewers with Craig counsel, their manager in the postseason. It just feels like that this is more I don't under the spotlight feels like that. We exacerbate this that the bullpens are going to play a pivotal role. The analytics played a role last night costs. The dodgers. I think back to Bob Gibson and I know this is I'm get off my lawn kinda guy. The cardinals legend started nine World Series games. He completed eight of them. They don't build them. Bob Gibson anymore. But even if you had a Bob Gibson now, you'd never know it because the managers go, how many pitches lefty? Righty. How's this? Matchup what's going to happen later in the game? You know, if we can bring in this, you reliever, then it's gonna take that guy out of the lineup. So the new trend is is fun. If you like strategy now does break up the flow of a game. The rhythm of a game that probably bothers me more than anything because you're just you're settling in and watching something and you hope you gotta pitching matchup and then you realize you don't. You have pitching's in pitcher matchups here. It's just an, you're also going left. He writing dodgers. All right handed batters I think that's the first time in World Series history. All right handed batters no switch hitters in there, but that's because they're trying to counteract with Chris sale. But you know, the dodgers are taking left-handed batch out of the lineup, which I thought was interesting. And you got three guys who hit over twenty five home runs this year. And they're not playing because of a left left-hander. I don't know if that's going to be the case with David price tonight. I'm going to say probably not, but you know, Muncie and Peterson and Cody Bellinger. I mean, those are big ticket items there that you're not putting in there against Chris sale. And granted sale is great against left handed hitters, but man, at some point you have to say, I think my guy is just as good as their guy and with what I saw was sale last night, and I did strike out some guys. They get seven strikeouts seven or eight, but I still have to play the odd seer of getting my better player in there or better players. So we'll see how that works beyond the game is changing right before a very us. And it's a shame that we're not looking at starting pitching the way we once did. And that is you give the guy ball and you go out there and, hey, I want to close. When's the last time we had a complete game in the World Series. Did you find that McLeod still? Efforting. Okay. Shouldn't be that hard to find. In other words, we have in. For an effort now. So what I ask at about eight thirty two this morning east coast time. Okay. Kind of slipped by during breakfast. Okay. All right. Sorry, I don't ask much. I think that's the only thing I ask for today. Pretty much. Okay. I gave you the the, the Rams schedule. That was a good find that's not hard to find, and that's not hard to find, but thank you though. I'm guessing maybe Justin Verlander is the last guy Madison Bumgarner. I don't know. Those are the names that stand out doesn't take long to call role of somebody who's going to complete a game in the World Series. Yeah, I got. I got a Johnny Cueto mixed in here. Johny chrome wheels, Johnny Cueto is the last time I did it in two thousand fifteen according to this. Okay, Google. I'm going to double check that. Didn't do it last year. Let's see. Berlin. Alright, dodgers Red Sox coming up tonight. So sale in Kershaw both go four sale allowed. Three runs five hits. He struck out seven had ninety. One pitches Kershaw, five run seven hits. He struck out five through seventy nine pitches and the the eighth time kershaw's loud five or more runs in a postseason game. But the dodgers started. All right handed batters without any switch hitters and that is I am correct the first team to do that in World Series history, which sounds like a stat of the day. Day ahead of the day that passed out of the day stat of the day. Comes that stat of the. Oh, more like a trivia interesting factor the day, but we could go with it. I wouldn't have stat of the day the first team in World Series history to have all right handed lineup, no switch hitters factoid of the day. Ooh, so now we got to come up with factoid of the day sown. Stat of the day brought to you by continental tire, no matter what you drive, how you drive where you drive. They have a tire for you. Continental tire dot com. Proud supporter of the Dan Patrick show. Let's see a couple of the things ally. Apple was traded to the New Orleans Saints. So he's a former first round pick out of Ohio State, and I know everybody made same joke that traded the wrong Eli here. Well, they could trade both. Eli is. Member when John Mara is the coal owner of the New York Giants. And he got a fended when he was asked about tanking. Now, this is last year member when Eli manning got benched and he was asked about he was a healthy scratch, and then the co owner, the giants he was offended that you were asking about were they tanking. I hope somebody gets the opportunity to ask Mr. Mira about tanking this year because I'm guessing you're tanking. Now we just have to come up with another word for tanking because now you can say the process, but that's already they've already cornered the market in Philadelphia, but like the process doesn't sound bad. The process feels like there's progress process progress. We need to come up with a different word for tanking. Because when you say tanking, that's when coaches go. Jon Gruden gets upset about that, hey, we're not tanking. Well, yeah, you are front office tanking. Oh, you know those. Guys play heart member, Derrick jeeter did that, hey, they play hard when he was on with Bryant Gumbel on real sports on HBO. We're not tanking. Those guys play hard. The product you put on the field, they're playing hard. You're just not putting a good product on the field. There's a difference in that. So it's sort of semantics with, you know, owners and coaches in GM's how dare you say we're tanking. Now the raiders are tanking. The giants are tanking. Marlins tanked. We just need to come up with a new word for tanking. Yeah, polling. How about deferring success than words excess seems positive deferring? No, really knows that that means you're putting out there for a few years. We're not tanking. We're just deferring success to a later date gift for two. Is it more palatable if a coach or executive say, we're trying to be more strategic with our effort. And need a better buzzword? Yes, he is it a can't. You just simplify it and go back to when teams were just rebuilding, learn rebuilding, well, they're rebuilding right now. How about reloading. No Senate sounds like you had something Brebner reading, although Boone role on you eat when you boot? That's not good. So you're rebooting. See you're throwing up again. That's not good. Right? Yeah, reboot. I kind of like reloading and were reloading right now. Yeah, but remember that's a that's a gun culture where careful. Okay. Washing bullets or no more rebuilding is pretty foolproof. Rebuilding teams have always been rather rebuilding right now. But do you have like the DIY network? Like, you know, building off the grid, rebuilding off the grid, the New York Giants. A grid alot. Your great iron. Yeah, curated for the future. This very hip for her younger people like that word, rid it by myself. We got to come up with a new word for awful, but I, I love Alevis coaches get all upset when you say it, but, but then if you tell them, you know everybody is up for grabs a bear. Apparently everybody is available on the raiders even though John gruden's not going to say that front office is not going to say that that's the word around the league is make us an offer, and that includes their car. Everybody is available here, but we're not tanking. Their tanking for two years. I mean, that's really tanking. Yes, mclovin I think he got to give him credit that if you're going to take you gotta do it right? They're going, but Sixers process, but don't tell me how dare you say we're tanking. Your tanking, give credit to the saints because you pick up a guy ally. Apple was a top ten pick and he's young. He hasn't lived up to the promise or his own hype, but you're bringing him in saints, have some issues at cornerback and you put him in there. And really this is a matchup for the LA Rams. I think what the saints are doing is we need to match up with the Rams offense. I believe that's what the saints did. Now they got to win their division, but you gotta showdown with the Rams and saints coming up in a couple of weeks. I mean, the saints got the Vikings this weekend and they got the Rams coming up and I do believe what the saints are doing is we're playing chess game here. And if you're bringing in ally, apple, ally, Apple's going to match up with Cooper Cup. So the saints are all in it. That's the word locally. They're all in it in it to win it. And they feel like this might be the best time that best chance they're gonna have to win another Super Bowl tubers. Yes, paulie, how about this face? We're looking to win later rather than sooner. You know, as an all phrase Hicks, a little tool seemed like it looking to win later. It makes Senator transition. Winning on hold. It's like we're people's somebody's. It'd be like, I think you got that backwards. I dunno know we know or dental. We're just not doing it now. MiG glove, and you're right. The last Fisher to complete a game in the World Series. Johnny Cueto of course. That would be the name that comes to mind Madison Bumgarner before that cliff Lee, I'm looking okay here here the years. So twenty fifteen twenty four team. Two thousand nine for cliff -ly two thousand three with Josh Beckett. Randy Johnson in two thousand one. Day. The day comes that what stat of the day. It's like this akitas. You know how many, how often do they come back? Is it seven years for them? That's what starting pitching in the World Series is become devolved into. I phone calls are welcome. Eight, seven, seven, three DP show Twitter handle at DP show. Check out the new and improved. We reloaded the DP show up. We didn't rebuild it. We reloaded it. It was a process. There.

Like you can't say like, hey, if you wanna go ahead and download your video to our app. Okay, can't do that. Okay, but you can upload it? Yes. Okay. All right. Jim told me the hall of Famer will join us coming up. We'll see what he makes of all the moves last night, the left-hander on the mound. Therefore you put all right handers at the plate. What happened to that lefty lefty matchup there a righty versus righty men again at burn. Dave Roberts last night because bias was bringing some cheese last night and all of a sudden you make the pitching change and Nunez takes him deep. Yeah, fritzy and from someone who had six hundred twelve career home runs, I would think he'd be a little sensitive to three guys who hit twenty five plus this season not starting for the Andre. All right. We'll get to your phone calls. Not Patrick Mahomes which ones coming up slowdown, fritzy, whoa, or segment. Adrian Peterson will join us a little bit later on sixteen after the hour.

Would they be here today working the answer's yes, absolutely. I would. I can't quit you these guys. They can, but I can't. Who was not showing up if they won the lottery last night. Anybody on the other side. Would you be here the next day? So maybe you don't show up maybe show up today. You know what? We're all rider died in. We're all going to be here whether we got a billion dollars in the Bank or no dollars in the Bank. I like it Gladys. Detector I see it right now. This is my face getting rid. We were wondering that let's say somebody won the lottery and your family, and they were going to buy you a gift. So they said, hey, we're gonna get. You can get whatever sports car you want. You can get you a boat or I can redo your basement and give you the ultimate man cave and imagine if you go out and somebody says head, got you this car. I got this. I got you this Mercedes convertible, but it's white. Now you don't like white and you go and I don't get me wrong. I love it. But man prefer you got it in a black. I get it in dark blue. Is that a must shut up situations just take, hey, I got your boat. Look at this. Look at this motorboat. I got you. Man, it's beautiful, but and I'm like a sailboat if I could instead. That's when you go, you don't get anything. So I'm going to take that back like how much do you give to your relatives if you've got, and I got a sizable family tree here. Do you do you give each each member a million in other than the Heisman? I don't know. Five, five million five million each. What do you give? Yeah, pull. I thought about this before Barkley said, if you start giving relatives money, they expect you to keep giving them money forever. Then they'll never stop. What if you, let's say you had a bunch of brothers and sisters and you paid off all their mortgages and setup locked college funds for their kids and say, there you go. So you no longer have a mortgage which is a big deal to an American family and your kids are going to college for free on me. You're on your own after that. I think that's a real nice gift. No matter how much you want in a lottery would if I just gave you a lump sum and said, the rest of it is going to be put away in. It's not going to be acceptable. I mean, the reality of it is if you have that kind of money, people are just going to keep hitting you up for money anyway. Even people that aren't your family members and be like, you got a couple of bucks like a borrow. Yeah, you're not so that that's just going to be sort of what your new life is, but paying off somebody's mortgage and setting up college funds and stuff like that is an awesome thing to do. That's great. But I mean, but are people really not gonna hit you up when they're like, hey, I still somehow messed up. They've ever passport, I'm going to be in Italy. Yeah, yeah. I'm going to go into witness protection Jones. My name, I location. My look go to Kim Kardashian doctor. All of a sudden, I'm a look different. Change my name tonight. Wednesday, night hockey. Star started star studded. That's north of the border. It'll be the Maple Leafs taking on the jets, and then it'll be the lightning. The naming against the avalanche tonight at seven eastern on BCSM still coming up with something different than tanking. It's Chuck Edwards, tweets. How about competitive repositioning? I like that. From Charles Rex AP teams are creating a new recipe for success because I don't want to offend, you know, the giants or the raiders. I don't wanna do that. Austin Dunkin thirty three tweets. If everyone on the raiders is available, what are the chances that Packers tried to get Jordy Nelson back? I thought of it, but I, you know, I make a run at it house Jordi doing this year. See their second best receiver. Mclovin I don't think. I mean, Jared cooks in their best receiver. I think Geordies right in there with Mari. Okay. Maybe you can maybe can make run on him. All right. Your phone calls are welcome. Eight, seven, seven, three DP show Email address t- pit Dan, Patrick dot com. Jim Thome e the hall of Famer will join us coming up mclovin. What's poll? Question two? Can we ask just get it out. There is an Olympics hurting baseball, yes or no. I mean, we had yesterday the pitcher's getting pulled. The lefties aren't starting, feels like things are getting weird. Paralysis by analysis. Sometimes I blame Tony LaRussa. You don't want somebody calls you a genius, then you gotta keep living up to the genius. Because I don't think that Tony LaRussa could ignore analytics. No, you're I always thought, you know, when when a manager says, I have a gut feeling I'm comfortable with that. That's that you're feeling with your team in that moment? I'm comfortable with that. It just feels like, gosh, do we send Kirk Gibson to the plate? He can barely walk. He can barely swing and he's gonna face a hall of Famer in Dennis Eckersley. Now not don't think we're going to send Gabi to the plate here the computer says no, with a guy who's going to the, but you know what the giveaway would have been when geeze using a Walker to get to the plate. That's when you probably thought now this wouldn't be a good idea. Yes. Mclovin that's actually that was an analytics. He's a lefty. If you can get a lefty out on, if you can take him on a stretcher analytic, say, put him out there lefty writing all, yeah, you had your match up there. All right. Jim Thome as working for the major league baseball network coverage from Fenway begins today at three and will feature MLB tonight airing before and after every game they do a great job and it's good to have the hall of Famer back on the program. Jim good morning. How are you. All it's great. How's everything? It's been a long time. My friend other than gold. Great. Yeah. We're just trying to figure this out with the analytics that when you know that you have Chris sale on the mound, the dodgers go all right handed. So I got three guys who hit at least twenty five home runs, and I got the analytic saying, I can't put them up there against Chris sale. What do you make of this. Well, look, I think the analytic have been a big part of where I think we've become where we're heading forward, and it's it's about numbers by the way I would send you be up there just so you know, okay, I was upset and he'll be, I would have seen give up with as they did as Tony as you know is Tommy Lasorda did at the time, but you know the the analytics are interesting because, you know, I also work with the White Sox and and there's a lot of information being put out there. And I think I do believe that that some of it is good. And I do believe that you have to go off of wisdom to time in history and just being around the game. And as you said a minute, I was listening in the gut feeling and I think what made all of those managers great is that they had those gut feelings they had, you know, they may be said, okay, Kirk. Gibson can hit that back door slider, even though he is hurt, you know, Eckersley didn't throw hard, but maybe at that moment he could've done that. You know, granted he was hurt, but he could still get to that wrap around slider that Eckersley through. And he did, which you know that that's why I respect the guys that do have the gut feeling, but all those analytical guys that bring the information down and they put it in front of you. I think there is value to that as well. But would you be sitting out last night's game in your prime if you're facing Clayton Kershaw or Chris sale because it's left the left yo? No, I would not. I would not. I, I hope not. You may not have a choice in it. Your manager might go look, looked at the analytics, Jim, sorry, you're not gonna face Chris sale. Well, that would have been a bummer. I'd be honest and Chris sale look little. Chris sale is a dominant dominant left-hander and there were there were those guys in our time Dan that that like, you know, the Randy Johnson's, you know, when Randy was dominant, those were times that Espinoza would get that star, but overall, but that's when you wanted to sit down Jim when Randy Johnson was on the mound, you're okay if your manager said, hey, well, not mon- mentality, though. I'll be honest. 'cause there's always at one chance that you could come up with a big hit and you know that that's that's where our games headed. I really believe it. I think you know, as you've seen with bullpens I think we've seen it with, you know, with with platoons and and you look across the dodgers, you know, whole staff lineup, they've they've got guys. They got guys that are sitting at our all star and create. To their to their credit that's gotten them there. I just I like the old traditional way. I think you know that. But Jim, I'm looking at this the last five complete games in the World Series. I think we've only had five this this decade in the last decade. I think we've had no. Even in the last since the two thousand one World Series, we've had five complete games in the World Series. Who were those guys, you know, Johnny Cueto Madison Bumgarner cliff -ly, Josh Beckett, and Randy Johnson. Yeah, on the all dominant. I'll be honest. And I, you know, like lift me the smoltine I think smoke he, you know. 'cause 'cause it's multi says a lot of great things and you know that that era that time during our nineties, it's it's just changed so much. And I asked the question, is it because there are more guys now that throw harder and you can keep bringing them out of the bullpen noon, but, but you know, it's to me if I hope that we continue to see, you know what the stat like the five complete games. You know, I gosh. I mean the old traditional starter that could go eight. You just don't see it no more and you don't see it in post-season because of the firepower that these bullpens have that they can go to. Now, the risk that is when you overuse them in. And I know this as a hitter. If you keep running the guy out there and I, we get used to them and we see their tendencies. A guy can still hundred and get hit. So that's the fine line of bringing too many guys in or lot in a seven game series where guys, you know or lineups get, you know, they get used to these guys coming out of the pen. Alex Cora made all the right moves last night. And you know you make that switch. You bring in Nunez, you know, bios was throwing some cheese up there, Jim, and then you bring an Alex wood, and you know it's the three run Homer. That's where it's a gut feeling and look. Dave Roberts has done a great job. But in that moment it just felt like, man, this guy's, you know, he's he's bringing it and I know I got play. I gotta play the the analytics here and not that they lost because of that, but it just sort of, you know that the spotlight shined on that because you sit all your left-handers, you want those matchups and. Didn't work out last night. Now it didn't. It didn't. And that's the fun part. It might tonight, you know, and that's look. I mean, I think I on on the on the game last night. It said managers are getting more scrutinized than ever and and it's because of all the moves that are being made. I, I mean, core has done a fabulous job. I'll be honest. He's kept the game traditional. You know, he's hitting them running. He's, you know, he didn't steal a guy at first base left the whole open. You know, there's just little things that I really think he's done a fine job. And you know, as you will know, Dan, it's all about matchups and you know, but, but are we overthinking the game a little bit? You know, that's that's the question. I think everybody asking the postseason now and especially the last two or three, he's I think it started. I think it started when Andrew Miller was Cleveland. You know, few years back, you know, when Tito was going to Andrew. Like the fifth and the six, that's that's when I really started seeing like the total change of the bullpens completely taking over the post season is Jim told me the hall of Famer working for the major league baseball network as an analyst. I got you one for nine, six strikeouts one home run against Randy Johnson. Well, I got the one Homer, but you know what? I didn't farewell. This is good as he was. Yeah. I mean, you're, you're a at least I got the one, but I got the one later on, you know his career and I was in Philly. So I'll take it no doubt about what is it like when you go when you dig into the batter's box in Randy Johnson on the mound, and he's never in a good mood. So what do you think when you go to the play. I'm thinking as I know as I got us tablist from me, I was thinking, okay, like hang in there. Okay. 'cause he's, he's tall, six, eight, six, whatever he, his height is his arm span like basically throw to the plate. It's coming out at you. And for me it's, you know, get mentally focused, try to try to hit a pitch and don't miss it. And if you miss it, it's not gonna. Be a fun at bat. Look, look, Randy Randy was if not need most dominant left-hander of all time. You know, he was definitely in our time in the nineties through the early. I don't know when Randy retire, but he is. He was incredible. I, he was a tough match up, you know, but but mine mentality was always, I'm still going to compete and yet, and I'm still going to walk to that to play and think I can get no matter. As you read the numbers, which he dominated me, but I'll still think it no doubt which it like at the plate at Fenway when you see that green monster. I, it's, it's kosh I can. I can see it right now after all them years, you look up the green just east see it, you, it's just tradition. I don't know. You know, for me it all just though to it, I was felt like it when you come out of the runway up in the dugout and the first thing you see is the green monster. It just feels like it's a wiffle ball field, like, man, I I can. I can hit one off the wall there. It looks so close. Did you adjust accordingly defend way to try to use the wall? You know what I was just gonna say, gotten typically Fenway got me locked back in to going the other way because you could get beat a little bit and and hit a ball the other way, and it hit the wall or go over it. But it always it always helped me get locked back in wherever I left from there, but in the green monster, like it just was tradition. Man, that's baseball. That's that's as good as it gets who who wins tonight? What's it come down to tonight with this pitching matchup who I gotta be honest. I like price. I really do. I think him pitching the way he did last game. I think you know, he made a few adjustments. I think they pointed that out on the network. You know where he's standing on the rubber and but but but mainly I think he's healthy. I like Boston again, to be honest, I, I, they got a really good club. Man. They do a lot of things right, and they got a lot of firepower and I really like how core has has gotten all them guys in a flow of of the game. The one picture that comes to mind. If I say, man, I owned that guy. Who comes to mind. Oh my God, I feel I don't. Okay. I don't use the word own, but I felt good on Justin. Verlander. Really? Yes. Believe it or not. I still great on Vert Lander, not many people feel. I felt great on Clinton. I would say the one guy and again, I don't try to use the word owned, but Rick Reed back in the day was a guy that I had a ton of success. No, I can understand that. I can understand that, but you said Verlinden Clemens. Yeah. Yeah, I feel I felt good on them. I, I really did. You have seven home runs on Verlinden. Yes. I don't know how many hit off. How many do paulie do we have gyms numbers off clemmie be seven or eight. Seven or eight off Clements I think. Yeah, I'm if I'm if I'm not mistaken. Yeah. I got. In even. Yeah. Well, you hit six hundred home runs. I mean, you had to take somebody deep a few times here. I mean, Paul, you, we have Clements we're checking. We got eight people working on this right now. Okay, I love it. Yes, it looks like he's got eight eight against Clemens. We, we always know right around. Clemens was listening. Now he'd probably want to buzz the tower on you for calling him out like this. That's okay outta. Got right back in. That's that's you big country. Boy. You just get right back up there and you take your cut, you rub some dirt on it Jim, and you're okay. That's right. Yeah, that's right. That's it. It's him in the head. Did anybody throw at you like, did you ever feel like, you know, that's a purpose now. Really. I mean, look, look, I was on the plate. I was all I was all over the place. I wanted to create my strike zone. I, I wanted to leave everything out of the equation of an empire calling the ball away Charlie manual. And I when when when I turned when everything started turning for me for the right direction, I think getting on the plate was the best thing I ever did. And I felt like I controlled the strike zone now. I struck out a bunch, but I still felt that if if they made a mistake, I was going to have the plate coverage to cover the area. I got Samantha, smokin. You want. Think he did. I remember. Yeah, but but okay, who's the guy you're not going out and that you would give pause to go out to the mound. No one. If look look, if I if it's called for and you'll get smoked or you know, like the way the game plays out and you get hit, you go to the. I mean, that's just baseball. That's that's how you're supposed. That's how you earn respect. You know, for you from your teammates, you know if you get hit. I mean, I, I don't think you're every time looking to charge them up. You can get a field during the game. If a guy's purposely like throwing behind you and then you know, like like the Scott in, you know, alternately, you know, that's why retaliate you don't. You don't see, I feel you don't see. You're not seeing a lot of retaliation, but I do. I do believe guys will throw it guys, you know today they will do that for sure. I hope you're having fun with MLB network. Good, have heavy on Jim and congrats for all the success. Cruciate it good talking to you again and you as well.

Are the analytics hurting the game, a lot of tweets here. Paul Severino who's the Marlins play by play guy, weighed in. Strategically, it'd be stupid not to utilize the massive amounts of great information, terms of entertainment, killing it balls, never in play game loaded without lettuces them, rarely do you see it on display. Bob convert? Yes, yes, yes. They made the game boring for fans even die. Hard fans by encouraging a dull style of play, devalued guys who can actually hit pitchers who can actually pitch of taking the job of managing away from managers and put it into the nerds hands. Hey, hey, hey, Bill, dubs, tweets, yes. Analytics are to be input to the coaching staff for decision making purposes as other things during the game analytic shouldn't displace all the other things that help meander through game strategy or eliminate situational hitting. Let's see. Be saw a four, seven analytics are fine. But the danger is they can prevent conic moments like Bucky dent or Kirk. Gibson home runs. Z. Schreiber analytics only work when the odds are spread out over long season doesn't work in a one game or seven game situation. C. j. d. s. p. n. radio, yes, might as well play the games on XBox. I'm sure fans were expecting to see Chris sale in Clayton Kershaw pitch past the fourth inning where they weren't pitching well, but sometimes you'll get. I one of my favorite pitchers of all time is Jack Morris. And you know if you've listened to this show the last fifteen years. I've campaigned for Jack Morris to be in the hall of fame because what Jack Morris did was he would take the ball even if he didn't have great stuff, but he would eat up innings. If he gave up four runs, he didn't care. It was about nine innings. It was about. I'm gonna give you as much as I can give you. I'll take the stress off the bullpen. I'm not afraid of a big moment in Jack Morris was one of those guys. He was the ace for three different teams at one World Series, and he wanted the ball in a big time situation and it wasn't all on a pitch count, or I gave up four runs or get me out of here. I don't have my best off. I don't want to be embarrassed. Jack Morris went out there and said. What do you need me to do? And I'll do my best to give that to. This is from Randy MacLean, be fully not to take advantage of the data and technology that exists today. That said, I still think the best teams would use a blend of analytics and good old fashioned baseball skills since I still think it comes down to to trust my manager in in a, you know, just a gut feeling situation. And there are moments when you hear a manager say, I just had a feeling about him today, whether it's a pitcher, whether it's a pinch hitter, whether it's regular position guy, I had a feeling and that's what I love. Because I think if you like, Joe, Joe Girardi used to have this notebook. I mean, he had the binder that was huge and it was you become robotic and that's what I worry about with the game. Yeah, club. Move the football for a second and Alexei gopher to in that situation where Mike variable and the titans went for two against charges. But I felt like watching it all the momentum said, don't go for two. Why? Because they were. They were winning the second half against the chargers. They were going to win that game. And I thought if you go into overtime, the titans were playing better than the chargers and they were going to win. I know we get caught up into you. Go for two when you go for to. That was his situation where I thought I'm not big on it. You know, there are times when you have to do it, but it's like if I say, I got ally manning is my quarterback. I've Aaron Rodgers going for two. Well, if I do the percentages allies, not Aaron Rodgers. I feel a whole lot better with Aaron Rodgers than I do ally manning and not just pick out alive, but he's been the topic of conversation here. There's certain quarterbacks where you like Tom Brady, okay. I feel a little more confident here. Yeah, mclovin you know, as a fan in football kills me is when you're at the opponent's forty and you punt the ball, it's like four thousand three. And then you put it in the end zone do coaches. I hate coaches get to conservative on that. They do. It's there's no perfect solution, no. But if you go by the book, that's that's where it gets dangerous. Like is your quarterback healthy? Do you have somebody who's really good? Do you have a play? That's great design. Not just, hey, we're supposed to go for it. Well, is Marcus mariota healthy of what am I going to ask him to? Do you know it's to Sean watching healthy. So I if I go by the book, then you know, I'm gonna let those numbers. You know something that's not personal as opposed to in the moment I got a quarterback who says, hey, I can make this. I can do this. We gotta play trust me on this. That's what I think is sort of Evaporating from sports certainly with baseball. But I want to see more of a flow to the game. That's the bummer. With all the analytics, there's still flow to the game anymore. It's very, very, very choppy. All right. Coming up. Patrick Mahomes will join us what's up Mahomes. He'll join us coming up a little bit. I will get your phone calls. We got our. Poll question or analytics, killing the game. Now we're coming up. From the mind of Martellus Bennett.

RWT11 Reminiscing with Tom - Weekend of disaster
"I still have sin with my grandfather telling me stories of old the older in bet as used to say. Well he's no longer here to share those stories and I wish I'd catalog. That's why I felt such an affinity to thome listener from Alabama now living in Berlin who started sending US recordings of memories of growing up. Enjoyed this shirt true story read by Tom Himself in this special edition of the show way calling reminiscent with Tom. My most fond memories. We're going into town on weekends to stay one of my aunts apartments. Hanging out with my cousins going to the movies and if it was too hot or no other mischief and mine just sitting on the second floor shaded balcony and talking about what happened in the past week when we were apart from each other. Now, this weekend of disaster as I call, it started out as Moose Ricans did. That question, why do you WANNA do? After all the joking and horsing around finally ended well. That was the beginning of our weakened adventures. I know remember dull surfer being around and that was good mostly working. GotTa make that whole mighty dollar was often heard from the adults. Now this particular weekend once that opening question was asked. My cousin had a grandiose idea. Let's go downstairs. In the back of the House we gained climb up the drain type to the second floor. And ended the kitchen window of the empty apartment where mom moved out. A genius idea. Now, this was an idea for girls and boys can do things like that. So, my cousin bar went back to her mom's apartment was second. Chore. As we begin our challenge. About the same age fred was of small stature. It was feisty and as I always admired him, he was fearless. Other cousin was as they called those days they bombed. I don't mean fat. He just had a larger frame than we did. Sometimes. He would pick on me and since I wasn't the one defied. Truest. Friend would be all over him and that would settle that. Back. To The drainpipe I read was to climb the pipe to the kitchen window each grade up that pipe and disappeared into the window like a monkey, and then went cousin kermit and he to made it with almost no problem being that he was heavier of the three of us. I believe he caused damage to the drainpipes anchor to the wall because I got almost to the kitchen window by world turned into slow motion the anchor gave away and me and the pipe broke loose from the wall and as type bent. It lured me slowly as is slow motion to the ground. I couldn't believe my luck realizing that we were in major trouble we all scrabble in all directions like rabbits and to this day I don't remember seeing either of my two cousins. The rest of the weekend just seemed to vanish into thin air. Only that was all of this story. I. Ran upstairs to my other aunt's apartment where my cousin Barbara was and after catching my breath and calming down and explaining Demogra-. What we did she and I went out into the long hallway they connected all the apartment entrances. We started kicking a basketball that conforti each other that isn't until they managed to destroy the ceiling. Light cover back to my aunt's apartment to get a room and clean up the clash and hoping that no, one would notice the bare lightbulb hanging from the ceiling. Then we heard someone coming up the stairs. Wow. fastback Barbara's apartment. It was a little too fast for as we push the front door to the apartment open the door doorknob knocked a hole into the. Drywall oh, man not again we were in for it now but Barbara, salted she could minimize our debt sentenced surely if she would only clean the apartment for her mom that would do I'm sure the place was never looking.

Trays. Flying If I could give one piece of advice to future generations what would it be my advice be a loser? Welcome to the one last thought podcast bite-sized wisdom and leadership lessons where people aimed to answer one simple question if there is one lifeless in you would want to pass on to the next generation. What would it be? I'm your host Ito singer. I come from the world of professional basketball am currently a division one college basketball coach. Who believes that your time is valuable. This is why I have created these short leadership lessons. You can learn from in under ten minutes. Utilizing the thoughts in wisdom of some of the best leaders I know We have two great leaders sharing their thoughts with you today. Marina BEREA is an international photographer speaker and host of marketing for creative show Tyler high-performance coach for basketball and baseball teams around the country as well as overseas. Let's dive right in It's be to give you one less thought and it will be just stopped being perfect if I could give one piece of advice to future generations. What would it be my advice? Be a loser. Whoever I work with people I meet on any level of their expertise experience. Any such of live. There's one thing that stops people from achieving what they want from getting to where they want to go is the tried to make things perfect and you know what actually behind perfection is is the simple thing as fear. Here's what I mean since I became a high performance coach effort. So many people say you're either a winner or a learner but this takes away from a fundamental principle of life and this principle. Is that winners. Lose more than losers. Lose when you start doing things these is how you grow making mistake. Make another mistake by making mistakes. You Start Looming. You start getting better and better now. I do agree with that statement. Because you're only loser if you fail to learn but I guess a better way of saying it would be that you're either a loser or a failure so when you do your work when you start when you for your dreams stop being perfectionist. Good is much better than perfect and every time you do it will be even better. It's okay to be a loser like I said winners lose more than losers loose but you become a failure when you terminate learning when you stop being cures and when you decide to abandon what you want most. There's no such thing as mistakes. There's people judgment on stuff that just do not work. They do not work as you expect. Or they don't work someone expect and that's it so your next step is try game and see how it works again. Just think for a moment you don't think about how to hold a spoon and put it in your mouth. You just did it so naturally to you because of Dennis so many times and you don't even remember how many times you've missed. The spoon threw away all the food. When you were a kid the greatest losers all time in baseball history. Jim Tomi Cy Young Ricky Henderson. Jim thome two thousand five hundred. Eight strikeouts CY. Young three hundred sixteen losses where he henderson three hundred thirty five times caught stealing most of all time but also Jim. Thome six hundred twelve home runs eighth all time. Cy Young five hundred and eleven wins. First all time Ricky Henderson one thousand four hundred six stolen bases most of all time by a long shot winners lose more than losers with that work as you want old your different and then you repeated over were a game and always follow your dreams. You're talented you're special. You are and not continue to be. Curious will take further than ever management. Every time you take one step just petty yourself on the shoulder and say I'm so proud of you. You took this one step. Ud this an ins- good for the first step. It was good. A byproduct of curiosity is as in school. A byproduct of curiosity is financial freedom. A byproduct of curiosity is winning. More likely you're ready have grown up and there are less people tell you that last people encourage you and praise you for what you've done so be that's one person who will praise yourself anytime any mistake for any steps you take. Don't be perfect. Be Yourself because you are awesome. Curiosity is the source of all greatness and remember winners lose more than losers lose. So don't let losing get you down. Let it spur you to new heights through seeking curiosity episode. Forty five of the one last thought. Podcast I want my guests. Maria Arriva and Tyler paycheck. It's time for the one.

Hey everybody and welcome back to weird mash up of masks of nearly up and seriously, let's play. This is GonNa be on both of those feats. I Matt and I'm here with John Hey. I'm doing great and Stagehand Roxy. Is GonNa Join US or not? The stagehand Roxy is working hard at doing some stuff. We're going to talk about some gaming tips, so listen to masks seriously. Let's play is what you just heard. Kind of tells you what we do, we. We play a game that we don't get to play normally. You guys just. Injured Crusade delayed through firefly I lost a recording of dungeons and dragons. Yeah We got and we have a Tokyo. Brain pop otherwise known as. Penny explosion, coming out perfect so explosion perfect, which is a different. You. Don't WANNA mediocre one. No, now you gotTA. Have you want the whole explosion? Yeah? So if you're listening, seriously, play masks is our call through podcast and you should listen to that because it gets. Bad. For people. There was maybe a whole elevator fully dead Nazis this last time they were mowed down by machine guns. While my character is unconscious because I got shot a lot. A Lot. That's a common thing in the whole. Catholic gaming is your characters. Go Down, yeah. I took like six bullets. I feel. I feel very justified that I thought out that if I. was working talking about deeming tips just quick. You know things that we do. Things that we suggest people because I don't always do the things I see. Yeah. And you Kinda the, so you have a whole document like yeah, actually my my old gaming group that I used to have back in my college hometown. We did a whole interview amongst all the DM's of things that we thought were good ideas, and we put it all together and document okay, and so I have I have some stuff here it's. It's more. Dnd Right right right, but you know it's game. Tips and gay mastering is the same across the board pretty much for the most part, yeah yeah yeah. So, you want to kick it. Kick one offer. You want me to go right ahead. I I would say the first and foremost thing as GM is to have fun. Because you know if we're talking about gaming and talking about running games if you're not having fun, your players are not going to have fun. You can be as organized as you want. But if the moment that you look like you're not enjoying yourself while you're running a game, you're going to catch on with your players. You know they're they're going to pick up on. That I think absolutely. I think and I think kind of spiraling off. That is to make sure your players having fun. I don't there are. When I started playing and. There I started playing with an old school group who went off an old school mindset. which was you know? This world is terrible? Terrible and everybody's GonNa die eventually, and it was player. Versus Diem and I don't like that. Yeah I like more like you know this is. This is for us to all. Have Fun together and if we can't. We can't cooperately story. Tell then we're not doing right and I even like that. Especially in larks because I feel like larks to me, are a much more storytelling heavy. Situation when I learnt by vary. Really get on my character sheet. It's only to check to see if I have a thing. I thought I had so I. Can I can talk sensibly about it. And, that that's you know back, has them into another one. And that's you know being prepared. Yeah, no, you got yeah. No, not playing note. You're going to play and this be prepared, you know. Like No, you know knowing your character ahead of time because. Of the law of things like DM to player are the same, and that is knowing your character knowing the game system. You know. But. I don't mean Ri- railroad over top of anything. Anything. Else. Oh, I got all kinds of stuff I could obviously can go down a list here. This point I think when so for a long time I. I started big when it came to building so I would build the world and build a game in the world and recently I backed that up on the other way mostly because v addition fifth edition has a very. I think a very good. DMG accessible for any game. so it doesn't have to be that one thing for does dragons, but they suggest you start very small. Oh, yeah, and then build out slowly from there, and I flip that around and. It becomes more more cooperative building in that case, because it'll be like okay well, here's kind of the outline and then somebody would like well I want like I want to be a wizard and I'm like well like wizards are kind of rare, because that's what set forth, things go on like so we should get you like apprentice to somebody then that build a whole thing. Yeah, and so like I've been very happy. My hawkin setting because you know some dude named. Hawk made a town so Hawkin. Okay starting starting small, yeah, yeah, and so I started with OCTA and built a little area around. They can play in, and then you get beyond that then we'll get there. You know that kind of captures that starting Gamer mentality. Because I mean when you when you first start a game, you have no idea. Like when I first started gaming, the game world that I entered into one of the first ones was Grayhawk. I knew nothing about the world was second edition. The guy running it barely knew more than me, and so you start small, you start off in your village. You have your character ties close in which a lot of modules recently have gone into whole. You're the you're the. The loan wandering almost Clint Eastwood character that shows up out of nowhere to fix the problems. That just doesn't feel organic. the other thing that I've been doing lately. As a as a GM is. I will put together a style sheet from game and I'll say this is what the theme is. These are some movies to watch to Kinda. Grab hold of that theme, so we're playing an. We're playing a exploration archaeologist kind of thing, so I had them. Watch is suggested goonies, Indiana Jones something. Something else ridiculous to get them in that mindset. And then I listed out exactly what races and classes were and were not common, and then just suggested that we not picked two things the uncommon list. Yeah, like if if you're an Elf which is uncommon, don't play also ranger, which is also uncommon like play, l., something else or play something else in a ranger like. And that Kinda that Kinda helped guide the things. That style she'd also help. Inform me on how I was writing the setting so. That style sheets extra something that came from. D-, twenty or the twenty addition vampire the masquerade okay. The new rule set. They suggest a style sheet for like. When you play in the Camry aside it has a style, and there are certain things that are you know the the that take certain amounts of things to get into a certain clan, and then they did the same thing for anarchy and spot, and so I looked at that and adapted it. I really liked I, was actually very impressive. Put that together to get. An outline of how do it then said? Fix It, however you want, but this is a good starting. Point accedes to have a venue style sheet, but it was never that detail today. No, this one was I was very overly impressed. And it worked really well in the game that the that I played in for that I liked it quite a bit so. Cool. Anything. What was what does she got run? You, run you run a lot of games, don't you? Gotta Run the session while John. GM's the gay okay. Oh, no, no, no, sir, you coordinate and he. Can Give me on that. everything I've heard has been as great from a player side definitely encouraging your players to have fun because we have sat at tables where it's just not gone. And it gets, and it depends on the player to I think you have to be mindful of your group. Because some groups are going to be very interested. In Luton, level, they just want to hack and slash. Get their goods and go surely likes to murder everything so she'll care India. She's like I'm going to kill everything. It's dead. I won't like. You can make that, but like when we get to a blake, she will spend. Days researching exactly what she needs to wear, and then think more about her character concept, and like she really goes front bass, I I am awful as a player of really coming up with the character concept. I will like create a character very quickly and then I'm like okay. What made my character this I? Do the whole concept thing afterwards. And, so but but yeah, I mean some tables want to level and just get golden go, but. I tend to like being the storytelling table. Stuff. But my we just I was just in a tomb of annihilation. On Sunday which are is really good and I. Don't even think we're doing to move in isolation stuff. Really. We're just in the setting. Okay, okay. But we'll have you all died horrific deaths not yet. Then you're not to reissue. We have gone unconscious a lot, but thankfully thankfully made her saving throws. Maybe you are. We're into. Harsh and because we're that old school, mindset of why should punish you for being an adventure? which kind of like you want some? Some depth there, but like you walk into the tomb in. There's a sphere of annihilation. Mike like can't go past that that's the end of that particular road and see that's the entrance yet and we haven't. I mean we're. We're still exploring the island in the jungles. We've had some pretty close calls enrolling level for now. But are is really good about that table. Really wants to role. Play wants to know good decent storytelling and I'm not a great role player I don't consider myself a great role player, but I enjoy being at those tables where I'm with people that want to really create character connection. Yeah, and not just. Oh, we found a job posting on a on a board and were mercenaries to kill for money, and so so I think that's what. GMC to be a little bit more receptive or perceptive of their their table. So that. That's my tip as a player. No, no, absolutely that's that that is a definitely a thing. I've. We. We used to play. I used to run a lot of games gen con before. RPG ARE PGA. What used to be RPG is now is players skilled or whatever yeah, which they can change that that's fine. PJ of didn't need to be a thing anymore because there weren't hot and World War that doesn't. Doesn't vibe the same way, but like their old stuff like we would sit down with a table and you would. It would be kind of a roll of the dice Issey which God and there were signs when I got characters that were just mid, maxed all heck, but they were fine, because the players playing them fun right I, got this. These two guys playing fighter rogues in third edition, and they were built trip, and that's all they were built to do they could. Could trip, and that's it. They didn't really damage and that we were fighting zombies. zombies get like one partial round every round, so they were trip is be would fall down. It would spend. It's round standing up and that's all. I could do that, so they would. Trip does Ambi- so the big beds because they were like. I level or second level. The Big Bad Zombie supposed to challenge the party. They just kept knocking down while everybody feared the rest of the. I was like Oh. Okay, and they were like they were having fun with it so. You. Know when you come as a player like. Even if your characters the biggest bad ass in the room like you need to be aware that there are other people operative. In most games not every game. Any that's not cooperative. It's still be cooperative because he in competitive games and stuff like a vampire, the masquerade or you're working against each other. It's still cooperative because you're telling a story together exactly. It's like my dad. He's new to gaming and that's one of his thinks he's like I. Just WanNa play I wanna I, WanNa do something together because the guys that guys that he lives around the game or my instant. Up North and South south of up north. Way Up North. So the middle of the middle of the. Compared to where relive, my friend that runs, games is a GM versus the players kind, yeah. And my dad was like you know it seems cool, and all but I kind of just WanNa play and have fun I. Don't want to worry about trying to kill me, yeah. And? That's a that I think is something that GM's need learn and that is be prepared to lose. One I WANNA lose an I get more fun watching them figure out my stories or fear on my my my Puzzles I. Don't do puzzles very well. I don't do murder mystery very well, but I like watching them go. Oh, this is what this is. Some of our Muslim. My favorite role playing has come from the podcast so like when in masks we've released. It already talked about it. They went these. Players went to so you listen to season one? They go back to the miser house. That That, Captain Workers now owns okay, and he's holding a party with the resurrected. So it's. An English Lord in England. And, so they can't just go in guns blazing, because it's a proper high-society party, so they had to work themselves in, and so we have one character who is not built to be social, but it's George, so it's George. And he's scarred and very very obvious, and then a soldier an occultist. Talkie Guy and the guy did everything he needed to do. The soldier in a Cold Scott to do their thing, and then George, sat there, and then when I was like so Georgia. You're GonNa get, and then he just unloaded verbally until until they want. Until they pissed off the people enough that they lost their composure party, which was their whole plan so like I mean there were some rules that night, but it was more. It was less about action and more about social interaction and I had I. think one of our better episodes that we've ever done nice so and then I got shoot rob in the chest with a magic Bolton something started growing inside of House went to. So. Here's the toss out with that because you know when you're talking about large things like that and parties and whatnot You'RE GONNA run into a situation where the GM is going to have to talk to himself right where you're playing pool characters and you got. Your not only the host, but you're also the bad guy, and you're also this character over here. WHO JUST HAPPENED TO WANDER UP? Yeah, and that's something I. think GM's have to get comfortable with the I. Do I do a thing where I have primary and tertiary or primary secondary tertiary characters and I will voice primary and secondary characters triggers. Don't get a voice. They get a described action. TAT's. That's so so that way you delineate. Four hundred people at this party can be these crew crew of six, and then everybody else is just you know whatever I've also brought people into play NBC's. So we brought back Father Ravi from season, one for season, two as a contact for a character, and so I brought Johnny in I'm like Hey, like grabby like okay. That's great, so he got to play his character again and play the NBC for me. which I feel like gives it more depth, because even though Johnny and I were mostly on the same page on what I wanted to do. He ranted as he saw fit and played his character. So that was Kinda cool, and that's one of the things that I do like about even though I'm not. That I'm not completed with the masks of her current with the massive Show is I liked your including characters, and you even say in some of the early episodes. You could come back, but this guy's going to be crazy for ten years, so I mean. Yeah, you can come back, but it's going to be. I mean rogue. One of our heroes from the first season is now one of the villains, okay I mean. Spoiler Wilkerson. Dies. Yeah? He's dead on where I am ball, but by the time we get by. Have you got through the season yet? Now by indices one, it gets bad. It truly surely cries on my like it's really not because of being mean to her. Because she's like I can't stop this and I'm like no, you could, but nothing good. It's going to come from that. Your character going to get only bad from that result. Okay, so yeah, she was. She was upset which she should have. It was like there's no good Indian call Catholic. But we had a lot of characters. The went nuts. And I think that's the thing. Is You also theme the game to your players? Obscene go farther is to say you know. There are certain players like rob sends me a message on facebook I'm like Hey, would you think last game? This is right before. We went into the Party and he's like I was fine, and I'm like what's what do you think and he's like I? Just like I like to be freaked out I like to watch my character degrade over time and get. Impacted and I'm like okay and the next time he gets shot with that rain. Something starts growing inside him. He's like this just great and I'm like you did ask for this. He's like oh I did. This is even. You have to you have to look at what your want and what they're going to enjoy the most, and it's not always feasible, but if you can put it in front of them and give that to them. It helps them be involved and learning how to hook the players. Sometimes just is honestly just the conversation of what's keeping you from being involved with what's keeping his game and some GM's don't even ask questions. I mean it's just like or if they get feedback. It's I don't want to do that. That's. That's not and you know. And I understand if that's not your story, and it's like I. can't make that happen, but some GM's are just like. There's no reason it's just not not going to tailoring the game to the players and you know that's probably my biggest gripe candidate ventures. Venture Macho not half whatever. They will sometime say the only way past this point. Is this one test? Yeah, but what if your characters never find that test? What if they instead? They don't have even the ability to do that test, so we're playing through shadows of Atlantis for masks, and there's a point where it's like A. Spoiler, sorry you go into the underworld. And you have your soul weight. And I'm and I'm like okay. Except one of the guys like literally, it was a Spanish revolutionary. He may not pass that. One of the guys is known for doing bad things. He's not going to pass it so I've got and then one guy spying on the American Armed Forces for the church, which is a good thing, but he's willing to do terrible terrible things for them. Does he pass it? And then they're Shirley's character. Who supposedly good? So! What do we do with that? And that's also the into precedes him the system where everybody's moral in great right? Even your good guys yeah. So and something with which I learned a long time ago with modules that I need to grab the the things that the pillars that I want and everything else I can strip away so I did run when we ran masks Iran very heavily modified Matt version for several reasons, one would forget the details and give the wrong ones. Too, I would give the wrong ones on purpose. Because I thought it worked a little bit better or three. We've got to a point where the players were asking the same question over and over again, and I had to change it, so they understood what was going on right, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's just you know there's that MoD. That particular module was written fifteen years ago. There's been a huge change in how modules are laid out and explained and things six chapters, and it is a thick thick book I mean. We're talking like three hundred pages is not joking, yeah. Same thing with shadows Lantis Day like it's like here's chapter one. These twenty pages of the background of the city. You're going to be in and I'm like seriously, I but why and they're like. Here's the next forty pages. That's the the event you're running in the city and I'm like good Lord like this one city, so yeah, a tough one. If you, do find a module you like. It's just a matter of finding how to get its work. Bill Short, but we're kind of at our end Let's talk about Jeez thome travelers. Dice Spin Voyeurs Jeez opie dice narrates I'm just GONNA ask. Dice nerds. Yeah, we're. We're also scoping out your dice. So thome travelers guys are talking about older systems right systems that are out of print. We have started to kind of incorporates stuff because we've just had so many kickstarter games. Right kind of trying to do stuff that maybe people aren't always talking about, but even that may be newer home and we've also found that a lot of the stuff that we are considering how to print is pdf I mean you can get virtually everything. Out of prints, so we're Cadillac. Let let's go ahead and that's change up. What doing a little bit because we're GonNa? Try experimenting. Seeing were that kind of that show goes. It's are more popular show though so we'll see if affecting you changing the format. Doesn't anything, but yeah and then dice warriors. You guys look at Gaming Gaming. We've done dice, dice, trays, ice bags, we. Have done component collectors from like dogmatic game's the adventures from tabletop artisan, so we're trying to do trying to branch out a little bit dice cups. And then. People aren't normally wear like cracking. Dice York. Health dice because look. Anymore So they, the data set for dice. They set the kickstarter record going over a million over a million from our kickstarter. Those we got the half and half dice from. wrote at if, yeah. I I've seen them I know what you're talking, so. The half season were like it was like Oh. You know those. If we heal our levels. You get two dice for six bucks and I was like sign me up. I have to spend I just like seventy bucks to get to that point but I also got like nine or ten or eleven cents. It was ridiculous. I was like sign me up a bunch of dice for cheap, and they look pretty, and they came out not exactly what it was on the of a pretty close and really really nice looking gatekeeper games high. Man. So yeah. Yeah Those are some good ones, so we haven't been podcast coming up. That is not gaming related, but. I I don't even Oh, we gotta do. Look at you guys dumping information on me. I don't even know about what's. What's that one hundred pattern recognition or for yes? Yes, is doing. A fringe rewatch podcasts. We've got about six episodes and the CAN, so we're I think maybe eight. We actually have because we made as part of the first season. We Binge Teddy Watch blown away. Have you not seen it never seen? There's an episode in every season that changes the status quo, and it's the exact same number of every season. Yeah and I I don't remember the number, but it is amazing end of. What's his name? The Guy Walter Theo van. Dyke's mazing in. His mom and Joshua Jackson I got a lot of rain shot him instead of just being a character because he's the only guy that plays himself yet, honestly yeah yeah. Yeah yeah, but he also gets a duplicate. Yeah, so I really really love that. Move that show and it gets really weird, and then it starts to normalize a little bit, so you can understand what's going on. And then it was like no plus just turn that weird back on full force so anyway all right well. Thank you guys for being on and we will talk to you guys real soon. So we won't do that. Hold on.

Juen 4th 2019
"The. Hey boys, no. Have key for Ilan daily this Tuesday. June fourth. Did you listen to yesterday showed did you go here? Did you take a little squeeze it? That's right. Because it wasn't a daily. It was the big show, the lodge showed the grand show. So go and check it out. I thought the energy was really good Thome, and Robert nigh were on fire actually did it set it a morning when we usually record in the afternoon or evenings. We were little tight so that one was good one. So check it out. There's Big Mac event today. Will that's yesterday Yotam? Big Mac on the MAC all excited about the new stuff, particularly at the pro stuff. But also about the updates to s and the ipads, and all that stuff. But I feel like a bit of a hostage because epilogues come to it with stuff that androids head for three years, and apple people get so excited and the Android people go really dock mode with had that quite a while. Thank you very much. I think it's just funny. It's kind of. Like, what's cold hostage syndrome? Yeah. That's what it's like anyway. The big news of last week was actually head self to Ryan McCaffrey from ride the lightning podcast, that's a podcast. It's been ran longtime almost as long as as long I guess he is a game. I guy that does some gaming podcast, perhaps anyway. He's got very popular has the podcast and he snagged Illinois for now. So all the rest of us the do test, the put gusts very, very jealous of him extraordinarily jealous. But nice work. I much prefer alone being interviewed by fans of tesla than by the financial people and stuff because they focus on different things. So there's about one hundred million things I wish Ron have asked, and he didn't. But it's only an hour and you couldn't ask questions you want to if you had, like twenty hours with him, but here are some of the most important ones, I got at, but go check it out riding the lightning cussed so Fremont, it is for model. Why not necessarily what I heard in? Ilan's voice because he thinks it's the right thing. But the people around him that he listens to think that it's the most efficient way to get model up fast. And that is sort of to move onto one line into model three and y sort of next to each other using about seventy seventy five percent of the parts, not doing it over and Fremont. And he did not know that's no perfect solution. Because the batteries in the skates are Millard over in Nevada Fremont, because, you know, it's much more expensive and terms of living there. And so if we have to pay people more all that kind of stuff, but in the end, it sounds like the other voices of made him realize that Fremont is the way they should go for now. I want to know what's going to happen in the parking lot Freeman. They can have to have a lot more people working there. And the parking lot for the workers is already full upsetting. It's upsetting. It did say a couple of interesting things about model why, and I most importantly, that he felt he really underplayed model, y very specifically because he didn't wanna capitalize cannibalize Keppel has. Cannibalize model three. So if he had gone out there and gone, like this is the best cow, vivid evident by fire. It's better than the s it's been in the exits bid on the three it's so much. It's so much better. It's got so much room on the inside, even though it doesn't look much bigger than the three, it's like the Tatas way, bigger inside. This is the car that you should get. It doesn't have the falcon wing doors. And if you did Bill that then people would go, well, I'm not going to buy model three. Thank you very much. I'm going to wait for this amazing incredible. That just is a sort of year or so way. I think that's right. I think that's what you have to do. You have to get people fairly excited, but not too excited or you're not gonna be able to sell your model threes right now and they really do need to sell model threes. I personally, I'm super excited about the model y I think it will be the last car, I ever own because after that, I think, you know, play that out for threes after white comes out. I really do think that autonomous driving. If Ilan is even close to being right. We'll be baked into all of the cows the threes, the wise in. The recent is an Xs and there will be a rideshare network in most places that where I go. So I don't think I'll need a character that, but we'll see at Fathi is. But if I'm going to have in the next three years, I've got a lease that comes up, actually, in January, it'll be model why so probably have to do a month to month for wall, but I really do want a model why. And then at the end of that time, I think it'll be old done for me because I do not want to drive any more. I want somebody to draw me like miss daisy. Now, one of the things they talked about was roadster, and he talked about roads roadster and killing the halo effect of the ice car. So right now, it is true, although much less than it used to be that there's a halo effect of ice. Cows are just better and faster and they go further on a tank of gas, and he wanted to put the smack down to that halo effect of ice cow. So if you've got a car that is electric that has foster acceleration fast, top speed. Better handling because of the low center of gravity has six hundred twenty thirty forty miles of range on a single charge and you know, head to head, they'll be drag racist with the most expensive two million dollar supercars. And if the roads that can just blow them away on all of those things, then, yet that guy in the pub, the Tokyo bad how great ice causa and the latest greatest McLaren or whatever it is. And you can say the roast is better than that. But the rose has been that eve at the roads has been, it is a psychological effect. Okay. And then there's a trickle down thing, which occurs in also tesla makes the best fastest thing in the world. But it also makes these other which are really great. It's a really interesting marketing move if you can do it come out with a super premium ridiculous model and capture people's imagination Silla much cheaper model, but people who are buying the cheap model feel like they kind of got a piece of the super premium thing, it's done in lots of places and it works very well. So I hope the roads is just killer. But he only thinks they're going to sell ten thousand a year. I'm amazed that they sell ten dozen. But I guess, for supercars in the range that people used to paying two hundred two hundred fifty thousand dollars is not that much. I guess these supercars I don't have one are like three four five hundred thousand up to a million or more dollars. So it's a relatively cheap Karen, if they can do all the things that he says amazing. And he's still talking about putting stupid rockets again. We could put like three g rockets on you could vertically up into the air to g oh, please don't do that. It sounds frightening. And he talked a lot about the pickup. So he personally is most excited about the pickup of everything that's coming, even. Why and roads to? So he said in summary on this podcast that they need to make better than the F one fifty an intimate for lifts than fifty thousand dollars. Now, the if one fifty four hundred fifty here in the United States is the biggest selling passenger vehicle. They celebrate a million of those years about twice as many as they do the sedans that are at the. It start twenty nine thousand dollars. And the limited edition version, which, I guess is the completely tricked out version is sixty two thousand dollars people really love their trucks here in the United States. It has a range in a full tank of gas of about four hundred five hundred fifty miles depending with doing city driving ohi way driving. It gets a bad sixteen to eighteen miles per gallon, which works out to about twenty two cents a mile here in the United States is at right. Right. Twenty two cents. Whereas for model three, for example, in California to average electricity prices you're going to get a bad for four cents a mile so four to twenty two cents. The truck will have less efficient than model three, but it gives you an idea Euboea driver, your big truck and a third the process that you'll be out of driver, and your gasoline, truck, he says it's gonna look with but that's not necessarily a bad thing because when, you know, cause came out, they look really weird compared to horses. So he's suggesting that maybe they're gonna be pushing the design as of this a little further than most people are gonna be comfortable, but maybe they'll catch up later. So what do I think it needs to have some of the basic things I think you need to have in this car. That's listen, fifty thousand is a five hundred mile range that probably won't hurt the fifty thousand elevating, but at least a five hundred mile range, I think they need to have a six hundred mile range vehicle in this thing because you also want to have the ability to plug stuff in one hundred twenty volt stuff to be able to plug into that, which would significantly reduce your. So you wanna be able to drive along way and then be able to plug in some Queant and run it off the battery, and not worry that you're gonna be able to drive home, kind of stuff you definitely want the ability to Jack it up and down with something like suspension in. He says it's going to be blazingly fast. I think it'd be really great to have. Interesting cargo with seen in the Riviera and we've talked about, on the show, so something between the cab and the back with his big hole, and you can put extra stuff in there, and all of a sudden, you'll have the front, and that kind of stuff. So I think if they do it, right. They can have something significantly better than an F one fifty. The question is at what price. So he says they gotta start at under fifty thousand but that means it's still gonna be an expensive truck. And what would you get for fifty thousand versus I'm sure there'll be a seventy seventy five thousand version. Little have everything. He's excited about it. So therefore, I'm excited. Bill, ladies and gentlemen, boys nails go listen to runs right land podcast. My name's mellow. But part of the talking tesla. Podcast as it were we had the big show at the lodge show yesterday Monday. Go check it out. I think it's a pretty good. And hey, ladies us a rating review going tunes and become a patriot would love to do to do all that stuff takes a lot of effort to put this together every day, we love doing it because, you know what are you trying to do pretty important stuff? And we'd just trying to do pop. Sport.
Bonus: Were the paintings actually destroyed?
"Woke him to this bonus episode of the art of the exit. I'm Alex Soak in our last episode. We went inside the two thousand ten art heist I from the Paris Museum of Modern Art. If you haven't heard yet I'd encourage you to go back and listen to that episode to get the full context of the story. This bonus episode is a portion of our interview with Moraine. He's a reporter in Paris who is present for most of the Thome Court appearances and his sentencing to give a little background too much in his accomplices told the authorities that the stolen paintings had been destroyed while they were running from the law and this episode we go deeper into the subject of whether or not the paintings were actually destroyed or if that was just a really simple ploy to try and buy them some more time before getting caught and what's interesting about it to me is it. Almost you know the value of the paintings obviously that's talked about as far as how much money they were worth and he was stealing from you know really nice apartments before that and all on all that but it almost seems seems like maybe less so for your common ordinary fee. This is a lot less about money to thome inch then maybe we you know the average person would assume like it seems like this is more of a game more of like a game of chess to him or more of a something something more like sport than actual like thievery does that does that sound right. I think that's exactly right. I think that's exactly how he described it. As some kind of sport because like you've compared to some of the other bigger which I'm sure you've become interested in like like the Bill Governor Museum highs in Boston where other to Alber turned it at the time enough hundred million those people were professionals all the end there were brutal in their education as well which atomic wasn't it was actually in full and he described the paintings and the art as any visitor would into daylight when to visit the museum and that at some point like not talked about how he thought about stealing kind of remember what painting it was about a women buddy e e perceived like you sense that she was Thailand title and so he made the coal nathi steal it so very much relied on his gut instinct to commit those crimes and you're exactly right that he might have been more for sport than out of sheer greed because as you know I know stealing very valuable paintings prove immensely difficult in reselling them those paintings are I usually sold for maybe one mile no like what what the only a fragment of their market value because it's impossible to get away with them or themselves to a major major buyer or art collector so what he did is that he told investigators that call from Chicago so the antics dealer with whom he was associated had had paid him forty thousand euros of four the legit delicious it was worth millions so the the Association of physician of those three guys that is called hasn't told me and you're not on bjoern with his the clock maker occur who became involved in the plot and who supposedly destroyed paintings which then into theaters have even doubting Cam across as not the kind of fiefs you would that would go after paintings for the money and so the the clock maker ended up buying the medical Yanni from corvus for I think eighty thousand euros ah because he just fell in love with the painting. That's how he described thorough either. It's very nice of them. You expect to get away with such massive highs and maybe they were very nice but you know some. There's another version that did not destroyed paintings and that they may be hidden somewhere that we'll never find him again and that they may find a way to actually get rid of them. Maybe I got a good volley auto them. So excess all right would you from the from the tone of your voice and how you're talking about it and I I would tend into probably lean more toward the way that it's very convenient that they these paintings were destroyed. You know what I mean like. I'm not sure I fully believe that. What do you think yeah well. I think that's the one of the that's probably the biggest mystery here is that so the way it went is that after for the police was tipped off that someone brag about stealing the paintings a started surveilling atomic give angelie arresting him and I if I'm not sure about the chronology here so I'll be careful but anyway at some points Byrne who maker who has a demand was a nervous wreck at the trial. It was very painful to to see the obviously very distraught and etc that is was being appended. Whatever you know the other the Theodore Vail or scream I have put on their anyway he had been he was the one to hide the paintings. inside is what trump clock king workshop in Paris and he told the police that he hit the paintings behind behind ADR board metallic one and that when the police came to search his workshop workshop that could not find the paintings which honestly seems a bit farfetched because the police would look anywhere and it's hard to miss the painting enrolled or I don't know what state that we have been in but but anyway that didn't find the time so they were suspicious. Che's that for the paintings where hidden somewhere and the Modigliani from very enough had been put in a safe in a bank and his the data from his cell phone showed that he did go to the bank prior to his workshop being searched remember correctly and once again. I'm not sure about the penalty that's when he went there so it seems like he did have his face that was used to actually put the money away and end. Maybe that went there to retrieve it and put it somewhere else. this for an hour and one of the what the lawyer the difference for yourself at the trial is that for all he knew the paintings are not been destroyed that they would be able to put put their hands on them again went to get out of jail in seven years from now. There's two ways to look at this story. I think in general and I think is probably exactly what Thomas wants is. There's there's like a romanticized almost movie esque version where you're like wow he's amazing. Vigilante who has this calling signal of when he comes in he takes the the painting out and he leaves the frame and it's like this empty. It's very symbolic pollick of like almost the sport of it in in the sense of I think he would like that imagery and that like mythology to it but but then there's also just the really practical side of it of like while they're easy to roll up and take their claim which I think that's probably a real probably the real reason right right right right. I mean obviously it's that one differently because like I don't want to be taking it how it but what like a painting on the I was like it was a night but but by the time you'll have the museum and I was about to set. NFL He didn't want to be seen tearing something. Remember our or any or I wouldn't say that's not the way I would I would I would go about doing thing ed but I mean this is exactly the same study I as I said before he was really trying to come across has unlike a robin hood mostly like kind of a a regular joe stealing paintings worth over a hundred billion dollars but and you have to keep in mind that he was and down sentences twelve times four priority you that lighter percents including for instances where he had firearms possessions and he was is involved in violence violence against some people I wouldn't I wouldn't you know it's not exactly a white land is as being violent in the past and he is a is a criminal is is also what is shutting it. saying that you know his you speak four dissections. Explain yourself right right so as my last question I'm curious areas when you are in sitting in the trials when you were covering the story and and even to now that a little time has passed since it all happened happened. What what would you say is your is. The is the most surprising thing that you maybe weren't anticipating or maybe that you walked away feeling I'm from it. What's the most surprising part of the story. That's left the Reagan question. I mean like the big. The big mystery to me is the missing paintings. I think that it's very hard to believe someone would trash the paintings and discard them in a dustbin which one of the colleagues said it did this to me proves hard to believe because it's such a valuable valuable works of art that even the Kroth it wouldn't dirty do that. I've the showed any respect for it which it seemed that but this is still the big mystery to me that those would go unnoticed hidden somewhere I think also be way the media depicted from a member of breath member of whom I was as a member of the media was a bit indelicate defense that he was able to convey the narrative you wanted to convey it did not convince the judge but for the prosperity and is still being remembered is not like a pop culture figure ran a few really financial in France then you wouldn't know what industry knows name although at the time there were plenty of stories about him but he was able to spend the narrative around that it was just that good guy very talented killed feet and and he was I wasn't spaded that I was interested in spending because he managed to Catholic Athens South Fina Very Romantic light so you know whatever comes out of it. This is probably what people are gonNA. Remember and I'm sure it. It sure does that that. This is just like when it comes to any any thefts. This is this. This is a theft you know beat art or something else and the rim the romantic aspect of it. Although presence should not be I think even though it's what catches the attention of the media and people should not be the sole point to around which to judge the case and it's also painting stinking taking from the rest of the world that will never see again so this. I personally thought about thank you for listening to the art of the exit from Yahoo Finance. Please leave us a five star rating in review on Apple podcasts. If you enjoy this bonus episode we'll be back with another new story soon.

Interview Jose Antonio Morales
"Welcome to the entrepreneur academy podcast, the place for entrepreneurs from entrepreneur. One. Hi, this is Jim Thome deal onto banana academy and welcome to another put cost today have absolute pleasure to talk to Jose Antonio Morales. See is the guy behind feared failure. He's the guy who made so many different things possible today, and we're going to talk to him what it easy does. Exactly. And how can fit you what you can get out of it. And so, Hello, Jose. How you doing? Good morning. Hello. Hi. See today we here to talk about your part, the things you doing today. I mean, we know that you are very much interfere and failure in Philly, international, and you create this extraordinary movement. So can you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about all this? Sure. So there's a there's a line in my life that division. That is something like five or six years ago previously so before the line, I was a ninety professional and I was always interested in making my own business. I was working with Microsoft Peru. I was born in Lima. And. And then when I came to Europe to Slovenia I continued working of with technology and Microsoft technologies for, for many years, like seven or eight years, and then I haven't paternity of moving to New York and. When the saints were not as I liked decided to return to Europe with my family and. Then I have to question myself, what am I going to? And the first answer was, I don't want to be an IT anymore, therefore, what am I going to? I didn't know I received a message from a person his name, he said the guard shine an amazing grew and the father of. Organization culture. He said you don't have to worry because you are enterpreneur, and that means you can do whatever you want. So with that feeling of freedom. I started the new chapter in my life. The fear and failure was one of the first things that came up. It was the result of a theory, or a I called Lincoln island. Afterwards. I came up with the idea of having a working space, and that is called Aurora co working that he's surprisingly successful, and many other ideas that were growing vital. So you were saying you have multiple projects going on that same time right now. Right. So feared fail. International is the largest project, can you tell us a little bit more about fee and failing to national fame comes as a result of my own frustration? And the frustration was rooted in the fact that my business was not working I was trying to start up Lincoln island and I was ready to drop the towel when I went to conference and I heard keynote speaker complaining that, why the event organizers cannot learn from their failures in that was extremely interesting to me because a South American, I heard so many times, South America's Stelling European governments to let us have our own failures to let us girl. At our own speed. And the question again, to my mind was is it possible that we cannot learn from failure. Because if we gun learn from failure, South America would be developed today, right? Right. And some people decided to join this idea of organizing an event around failure. But. A few weeks after philosophizing about this event and the contents and the former that center, we found that failure was not the real problem. The real problem was fear. And at that moment, we understand feared the right but now fate grew. Now, we are present in, in five countries, I've stopped with hundreds of persons we had around sixty speakers if I'm not wrong, and the conversation with him was in reaching in fear in face today, the Sierra article foundation for all the activities that I'm doing. Okay. But it's it's really turned into a movement, right? I mean it's a it's a major thing it's going Europe, white now, right? I would love to see it even a bigger. So. Fear and Phillies, very strange very weird kind of thing because. Starts with your station on some events. Right. We call them meet ups. Those meet ups have speakers an an audience. So everyone would think that we are making events for the audience, but that's not hundred percent accurate. We are making the events for the speakers. And the focus of our energy and attention are the speakers the preparation of the speakers. And then when they share their story, the participants on itchy. Vent, get something out of of, of the event. Some of the participants were at in these will decide to become speakers in the future. And some of them not. So. It is. I cannot say that it is a movement because. If I think of a movement, I would think, on the participants on the on the in these of the rent when some of them receive something they start making changes in their life. But some of them, not in the case of the speakers in most of the cases I would say ninety five percent of the cases. They are the ones changing. They are the movement, but they don't necessarily know it. Okay. So. Right. So we said we'd hard for me to use the movement word what I would hundred percent. Agree is it is becoming European Community. Alright so, but in just to get this, right? Also for the listeners here, this, the idea is that someone goes on stage in front of a group of people, and tells about his failures and his fears right in business, mainly, or in life or in general or how, how does this in which area does Cisco? We use an ownership as a framework, right? So we normally ask stories for stories related to the preneurs path. We have if you needed for enterpreneurship that he's not necessarily related to business. Right. So for us, and British ship adventure is, is growing us in individual and business is one of the ways of growing individual. So. Some person about their divorce. All right. So it doesn't it doesn't really matter what mater sees that spirit of I want to move forward. I want to improve. Or we call it girl. That's the context, but their stories start. So when we ask a speaker, tell us your story. When they know that this is fear and fail. They will insane instinctively. Try to tell some story about failure, but the preparation of the speaker is going to bring some light and talk more about the fear part. That's what we care about the story is not on the failure. The story is in UAE the failure occurred, and in most of the cases failure happen, because we tend our fears with don't even know that the fierce are there. So what's the kind of impact you hoping actually making do you know exactly what, what the impact is? We know impact we understand very clearly the finishing of impact, but we don't have a clear metric. Yet. We we've seen persons change in their lives. We've seen person where there's that they felt lost. Become empowered, and our will not say succeeding life, but they went in, in, in, in a bus of growth and development and basically the persons that I remember our today feeling very happy. They're experienced they took their life as an experience. They took responsibility of that experience. So that for us success. But we don't have it yet as a metric because it is difficult. We would have to follow hundreds of persons. Fearn fairy events and workshops are bringing immediate results in terms of empathy in terms of understanding, but how do you measure that? I can see a point to Sydney, not easy, but I guess you get feedback. And of course, people tell you, I mean, I had the pleasure to take part in, in one of your vents here in Brussels. And I must say I was very impressed. Impressed in a way that it really provides a platform to tell the story out of your life, really in a way, which, which, of course, did you or me in this case, quite quite heavily in that, that's telling that story and seeing other people reacting to what's story. That was quite revealing for me, too. So I found that impressive. Yeah. And that's the focus on the speaker. You see you wear speaker there. Yep. And that's why the change on the speakers is almost in all the cases happening. So that could be a way of measuring for example impact. The number of speakers participated in the events. Okay. So just just a move so fee and fail. International is, of course, euro by this. We say so in which countries is it. Where can we go if you want to actually be part or take part in one of those workshops or or events? So there too, but Unity's one of them is to participate at one of the existing chapters. Right. But the other one is create your own chapter as well. Okay. It's a wear looking for expansion, so whoever that wants to participate just need to get in touch with us currently we have presence in Austria in Slovenia in Belgium, and Sweden and in Spain. All right. That's, that's that. That's pretty cool. Great. Yeah. I'm the team of persons. I mean, the we call them shelter managers are amazing persons. Self motivated, very enterpreneurial. They have each one of them have their own other activities. Right. So they don't leave a from van fail. Fanfares one of their activities. Yeah. I mean I must say, as you said, I was a speaker there. And in a way, what the people I met for me the most important part the most impressive part was really after the event so after the speaking was finished. And then starting talking to people and people asking me questions about the things I was talking about, and this reveal really brought complete new connections with with new people with impressive people amazing people. Really? So that was quite an experience, our, our theory here is that everyone is an amazing person, but they need to have the environment. In order in order to share their experience their stories that questions are doubts their bus, and Fearn fail is a format that is designed to generate empathy empathy as we understand it is an instinct, and that instinct happens. I mean this gets three girth when someone is showing their ability, but then the effects of empathy are staying for a long time. And as a senior experienced at the end of events. Nobody wants to go everyone wants to stay and share their own story. And, and another unusual thing is that no one is turning on the telephone. Or checking emails who are listening stories? Everyone is hundred percent connected with the stories and the speakers, and that's the right condition. Right. That's the empathic connection. Yeah, that's amazing. I have to say us, but I saw two amazing fantastic. So let's say what, what is your passion today? What is it actually? Why are you doing this? What gets you going? I mean, this is quite a this is quite a thing. It is quite a thing. Costed me six years of full time. Right. There's no. Business model and we have multiple business models. But there's no mother business yet. So it caused a lot of time investment from the mice side and the side of the chapter monitors as well. All of us are United by the same. Wish we care a lot about people. We are experiencing growth, as individuals therefore, we see how the orders, get stuck. And we want to aid them in, in a bus of growth in the meantime, with these over that there are some persons that they just don't want to grow when that's okay. Right. But for the ones that want to grow we are there. We, we are at one more live. Right. That is that is really what, what I care about now more on the personal bases. When I talk with my friends, my Peruvian, France, right? When I was young, we were going to parties, and we were travelling and they tell me that I was always the. The one going to talk with foreigners. Right. So I was going to drink my beer with foreigners. So I see the beginning, I had a nation for meeting, new people. And. I think that's one of my drivers as well. All right. Yeah. Well, you'd certainly do this. I met a lot of new people, and that was pretty impressive. So, you know when you look forward and you look ahead a little bit. What is it that you looking forward to? I mean in five ten years, where do you see yourself? So very tempted to create visions of future. Very careful about it because the visuals future, I had in the bust never came up as I wanted. So instead of having a clear vision of the next three five ten years, I usually try to have a vision of when I have seventy years old. And that means that's a vision that is not only related to business or. Something I cannot really plan. Right. So. Although I will dream to have these European wide are say Shen that supports this activities are I'm having today. How a lot of people working with me? Fulltime employees designers architects, wherever it's needed. I, I prefer to decline, I beat on that kind of dream and very much focused in what is happening right now. I'm totally sure that the plans that I could build up are not going to work as I expect. So, yeah, some people don't like to work with me precisely because I don't have that kind of structure. Okay. So, but when you say I mean, the people come to you and wanna work with you. For example, Phil international. I guess I don't know. We all very much used the structure. I do understand your point very well. Because if things don't work out over certain period of time we might lose a little bit of we don't really want to think about too much. And maybe that's even one of the fear and fail just talking about in a way. But at the end of the day, you see yourself someway, I mean, you doing all this is so much energy. Where do you get this from? I have no idea from where I get this energy. It might be fear. You know, my biggest fear is. To not be worthwhile. And it looks like this fear is waking me up every every now and then we've. And trying to solve it of by a fainting, positively the lives of others. I don't know. Okay. But this, this is this is a great. I mean you know it. So if you call me better. So, of course, if you understand that part, and that can be a driver to, as we know, fear is strong emotion. The same optimistic thinking ahead or whatever else you want to see in a way. It's the same thing you know. The same thing, actually, the fear has nothing of negative. Fear by itself is not negative, when these native is the emotions that we get from it as you said, as soon as you are aware of what are you afraid of is not? It's not creepy anymore. So you just recognize it. And in that case he starting to help, right? So, yeah. If my fears are going to throw me into a life of. Support for others and myself, of course. That's fantastic unto happy with that. I can see that so probably from there is that my energy comes I. I'm not a particularly. Feet person. I'm not all the time making exercises taking a lot of care about my food. Completely normal person. Well, I'm sure you are, but still what you do is certainly extraordinary. So that's, that's for sure. Just Joma thing. I mean if you could go back, I mean, if you if we're not looking in the future, let's look back a little bit if you look back about. Well, you know when you were younger and you were today, you could meet yourself. What advice would you give yourself I would tell myself that I'm good enough. That says it right. That's because, you know, the, the attitude, I constantly had when meeting new people when trying to sell something because I was always in business. It was a be the needy. I was always like trying to sell cheaper just to convince them to buy. There was always a condition, right? So okay, I'm going to sell this product cheaper. So then they know to work with me, and then I can raise the prices. Once they find out that I'm great, it never happened that way. Right. So once I mean to me, it never worked. So if I would be more confident if I would know that I'm good enough despite wherever others could say. I would be so grateful for that. Okay. That's great. That sounds good. That's bullion. Okay. Let's see just one more question before we finish this year. If people want to work with you. I mean fail you're trying to make it big that's, that's clear and you're looking for people and you can go on the website. See that. But how can they reach you? How can they find out more about it? Well, I'm available. Online everywhere. Right. So. If you find me with my full name, Santona Morales in, in Facebook. I'm immediately accepting. I'm in Twitter link thing. So it's just searching my name. Okay. And you have a website to I guess that's right. A personal website. I don't but we have the website, the voter co working dot com. We have the Lincoln island dot com we have the glue, but the website of the Louis we are the Lou dot EU. What else will fail dot com? Of course. Vision of present dot com. And all of these initiatives, are having faith who pages and Twitter accounts and. And people want to work with you specifically for fee and failed. Are there any requirements you? They must have they have to bring. Yeah. So more than requirements. There's, there's a process so. Because we want to meet people. We. Nor knowing that we are throughout Europe. We start with Skype call. Once we have a conversation, and we measure the, the interest of the person the motivations, they are compatible, the chapter is basically made then we're going to start providing some training, courses some philosophical discussions. We will explain the whole framework of their failures is pretty powerful and offer options. Right. One option is to have a chapter. So the meet up chapter, but the older is also the lever the workshops that we have prepared are very powerful. In the case of the worship their business model there. So. Whoever that starts a worship chapter with us can make a generate some revenue in the case of the meet ups their revenues, very small right? Just cover expenses, basic. Okay. Great. Well, that's what they really need to do. They need to get in touch with you directly speak to you and find out everything else directly from you. I mean what we will do below the podcast and we have our notes. We will have all the details about all the links and Email and whatever else in order getting contact with you, anyway. So we're going to put that on. Let's say just one Easter anything else you would like to tell our listeners anything, that's you think is important. Change is inevitable and resistance to that change is painful. Right. So those feelings of anxiety or depression. Are somehow our resistance to change. Struggle, we can call that resistance. We can call it struggle. And as you know, startups business owners. They go saintly talk about their struggles. But what we are discovering is that suffering is in the Bendon from struggle that means you can remove the suffering from your struggle. Because triangle is. Byproduct of growth. So once biology said to me that without struggle the first living cell will die because struggle is required for. Volition. So if you are struggling with whatever thing in your life, your job, your profession, personal relationships, wherever you need to know that you can remove the suffering. And you just go forward with your struggle. All right. Great. So let's, let's look forward to change, and let's make things happen. And look forward to struggle in a positive way really? 'cause see I would like to thank you so much for taking part in our podcast here and to tell us a little bit about your story. I'm pretty sure a lot of people want to get in touch with you and talk to you. So I'm looking forward to getting some feedback from your side, what's really going on. And how much brought to you not just to put cost, but how you progress. So if it's okay with you. I would like to come back to you in six month or twelve month time and find out what is happening and how you moved on with fee and fail. And with all the other projects, working on if that's okay with you. And I leave it at that. Thank you again. Very very much say, and I'm wishing you all the best for the future, and well, a lot of fear and a lot of fail. That's all. All right. Take care with me. Brilliant table, say have time. I hope you enjoyed today's episode.

Cracking the Code on Brand Growth
"Podcast is brought to you by knowledge award. Against Michael Platt, a professor of marketing psychology and neuroscience at Warton and pen, and Leslie Zine founder of triggers, a company that helps companies with brand building initiatives, Michael. And Leslie, thank you so much for joining us today on knowledge at working. It's a pleasure. Thank you. Thank you so much for having us, Michael based on your research. What drives Butch decisions in the minds of consumers. Well, this is really something that is only just beginning to be understood. So we as a field only began to really pursue the question of what you know, how our brains actually drive us to make any kind of economic decision. So that that question really first began to be tackled with the new field of neuro economics about fifteen years ago, which really took the basic principles of economics and married those two neuroscience. And so we now understand quite clearly that, you know, they're the mirror. Created sensory stimuli that we walk into a store, and you see different kinds of products that are available. Your brain has to decode what they are any kinds of attributes that are socio with them that, you know, from the past like you liked this, you know, brand of cereal better than this one. Or you notice that the cost of this other one is is less than cetera. And so there's a weighing up of all of those attributes, and that is distilled into something that we call value or utility. And then typically the way we think about the way that works in the brain as much like the way communists, think about it. Which is there's an actual comparison of value or utility, which leads to the selection of one for purchase. And by and large, the the neurobiology supports that, you know, what we understand right now is at the neurobiology supports that very basic economic framework, which is that you take all this stuff. All these attributes and memories it any boil it down into this kind of currency that is value your brain, which. Drives the purchasing decision. And that's the same kind of decision as I mean, we think in many ways deciding to eat a doughnut instead of, you know, eating an apple or to buy stock instead of a bond or to vote Republican versus democrat and these conscious decisions does the subconscious player. Sergei question. There's still a lot of debate about consciousness and its role in guiding human behavior. We'd like to think that we are consciously efficacious in all the things that we do. But by and large most of the decisions, we make actually seemingly made beneath a level consciousness, or at least driven by processes that don't seem to be directly informed by conscious or will. And this. The you come at this from having worked with so many large companies on their brand building initiatives. What's your view about? Oh this. Well, I totally agree with Michael in working with companies to change brand pref. Prince which is what we're most often called into do we've become students of instinctive decision making. And we see in our work that most of the brand decisions people make tend to be of that type that instinctive type it's kind of like the moment your standing in the supermarket, and you reach for your orange juice, and you choose let's say Tropicana over minute maid, or you're making purchase of sneakers online, and you suddenly by Nike over Adidas that instinctive moment, you're really not conscious at all of what you're doing. Something takes over. It's almost involuntary. And what we've sort of seen is that. There's that moment of purchase doesn't really matter. Very much. What matters what is what lurks beneath the surface way down in the subconscious? There is this sort of ecosystem of associations, that's exerting. The force. On you and telling you what to do in that moment. And we learned that the the brand that has the most positive associations and has the most robust network of those associations becomes the dominant instinctive choice. Literally just dig a little bit deeper into what you just said, what are some of the factors that go into these subconscious choices that people make even do they might seem very spontaneously made. But it sounds like from what you're saying that there's a lot happening under the surface. Yes. It's almost like every memory connected to a brand that's accumulated over time has become built up and almost like glued to the brand. And creating this this network of interconnections. Those associations can be images. They can be words. They can be ideas thoughts. Impressions first experiences literally every single memory that you have. And it's quite fascinating to dig into that. Because that's actually the key to driving the growth of your brand is understanding what's in your ran network. That's holding you back, and what are some of the positives that you want to reinforce they're going to help you grow more, Michael from your perspective of doing research on these topics. What are some of the factors that go into consumers choices about kind of products or services that the by most often and most frequently? Well, I mean, you have to begin with identifying what your needs are. And what your desires are think before you even consider the the the range of options that are head of you. So if you. If you are living at the level of basic needs. I think the, you know, the opportunities for having real, you know, a plethora of choices are limited. But you know, once you go beyond that, and you're a wash in products and brands like we are now, we know that there are many things that are that are presented by brands which are really just a symbol system for conveying aspects of the aspects of the quality of the goods, but also something like the trust that you might have in the quality of that brand. And how how you are connected to. And so we've been really one of the things that that Leslie I talked about in in developing. This piece was some recent research that we've been doing that has been looking at the emotional connections that you form with a brand. And so we've done some very recent research, which is not yet published, but but which suggest. That different brands have different capacities to build that strong emotional in even empathetic connection with you the same way that you would with another person. And so we found for example that that apple iphone users that when we scan their brains. We find evidence that they respond to news about apple in the same way. They would respond to news about their best friend. So if something bad happened apple they show evidence of pain in their brains. And if something really great happened to apple they show evidence of pleasure. And that's that's really interesting because we compare that to Samsung users we don't say anything like that the Samson user say, oh, yeah. I feel bad for Samsung, but their brains televised different story, and so apple has really succeeded. And I think we're too too many grease aware really succeeded in building this sense of identity with the brand. Whereas I think for Samsung users quite different it's very utilitarian purchase. And that has. Many down the road implications. Because if you're thinking about a brand strategy if you are a third smartphone company that wants to come into the US market target the Samsung users, right they have absolutely no motion connection to their brand. That's really fascinating given examples of smartphones. And apple and Samsung, but let me tie this to the piece that of your written for knowledge at Warton where you take product where you begin by talking about raises, you know, a product that one might not imagine might strike at emotional chord. And yet they were able to quite successfully take on Ovais formidable brand like Jillette, and I wonder if you could talk through what was going on there that allowed the uses to make that emotional connection. So what's fascinating about emotional connection? Is that we've? Aren't that? It's not driven by being emotional or by communicating emotion. Emotional connection is an outcome. It's what you want the consumer to feel to your brand connect with your brand. But it's made up of all of these other elements. So what Dollar Shave Club did really? Well, is that it accumulated all these positive associations really really quickly low price was just one of them direct delivery was another. There were just a slew not over engineered, and they gave a lot of negative associations to Gillette, very quickly. And so when you think about it as I've said, the probably gonna talk about the brand connect them in a moment. But the brand connect on is this fear of positive and negative associations for your brand to be the one that grows and takes hold of people like Dollar Shave Club super super quickly. The brand connect on has to grow. Grow and have lots of positive associations across many, different dimensions, very very quickly. And so literally overnight and that ninety second video they accumulated all those positive associations making that brand take root almost like a tree being planted in the brain and branching out and pushing all the other brands aside, including behemoths like like Gillette, it was quite fascinating one of the things that Leslie. So they're just struck me now, which was you're talking about the speed with which able to do this. And the centrally what they did is they went for multiple small hits, you know, base hits that were coming very rapidly rather than the big home run pitch. And when you think about the brain processes that lead to the selection of one commodity over another that's driven in large measure by dopamine. And so dopamine is signalling we know now predictions when. When things are better than you predicted, and sort of multiple small hits of dopamine are going to continue to reinforce the behavior that you've engaged in a much bigger way than say one big hit. But then that's it. Right. And then everything says predicted, so I think the out of the gate, you know, dollar shave just kind of hitting you over and over again, you know, it's value. It's cheaper the friction is lower it cetera. That was a really really smart strategy. We'd come back to Leslie what you said about the brand connect to him. But before we do that, maybe take a step back and look talk about the human connect Thome, and Michael perhaps you could explain what that is. And how it relates to the brain brain mapping project. Toobin? Sure. Well, the human connect on we're really any brain. Connect them refers to every single connection that every neurons in your brain actually makes. And this is you know, we think about the order. Of magnitude here. The average human brain has about eighty to one hundred billion neurons in it making about one hundred trillion connections with each other those are just estimates. So to actually map all of those out is at present impossible in a human brain. But what is happening what we can do right now is to begin by mapping some of the major connections sort of fiber tracts that connect different parts of the brain. And we can also map out areas of the brain that are active in association with different kinds of concepts like brands, but also words, etc. And you can begin to piece those things together. There is an very ambitious effort right now under way with the the brain initiative that is really trying to actually make a census of every single brain cell every cell in the human brain. What genes expresses all the chemicals it cetera that are floating around inside of it. And how. All connected to each other. We don't have the technology to do that yet. But it's on the way, but you can see how this the connect dome, which is a real thing. It's a physical thing at the moment. I think the brand connect them that that we're talking about is is a is sort of a metaphor there metaphor for each other. But at some point these will come together and in the future, we'll actually able to map the brand connect dome onto the human brain connect them. Thank you. Let's see perhaps you could speak a little bit about the extension of what Michael saying to branding and the brand connect home. So we thought the human connect on project was amazing. And we were we were challenged in our work for clients to help them change brand preference. So we needed to figure out how do you actually explain that instinctive brand choice? We wanted to dive inside the quote shortcut that makes you choose one thing or another, and we learned that you can kinda dig in and explore a little piece of that giant human connect dome and pull out just those associations related to particular brands. And when you do that you reveal what the barriers are. That are holding them back the positives that are giving them strength and helping them grow. And what we very quickly saw. Was that the brands that had more positive associations than negative were growing the brands that had a brand connect on where there was more negatives than positives were declining or shrinking and the brands had had a kind of equal balance of positive negative associations were stagnant and very vulnerable to competitors. So when you think about it, it's it's really very exciting to to think about it this way, I think, and hopefully it'll be helpful to your listeners to have almost as metaphor in your mind. We think about the external market place as the place where everybody's competing you're competing at the shelf. You're competing online, you're competing on Amazon. But actually, the true marketplace that that is important to pay attention to is the marketplace in the subconscious almost this parallel universe, where many brand connect domes are fighting it out and trying to gain greater share of mind. The brand that has greater share of mind is the one that's going to be most purchased who just little while ago as you referred to you gave a wonderful analogy for tree and the roots that it spreads. Can you? Give me some examples of companies that are particularly particularly good at making these positive connections with consumers memories and others who are not so good and perhaps more vulnerable. Well, I'll give you a recent example, that I think is in the in the news, and that you would know about which is McDonald's which in the old days about five years ago was not very good at making those connections and its brand connect Thome was declining. It had more negative than positive associations. There were all these viral videos that had were telling people that you know, there's pink slime in your chicken nuggets. And there's you know, bad stuff in your beef. And what they were doing to try to correct? That problem was telling consumers. No, we don't have pink slime in our chicken nuggets will turned out that was the opposite of what they needed to do. All they were doing was reinforcing the negative associations. What they shifted to finally was making real food associations showing people where the food comes from from the farm. You know, better beef USDA free range chicken all of that kind of newest sociation about real food and their brand connect Thome started to shift and now as you can say, they're they're having a comeback. And of course, all day breakfast added to that. But their their brand is getting better, Mike Linney examples. The I mean, excuse me, I think one thing I wanna point out as as lesley's talking about in terms of the brand connect them, so far most of those have been measured using behavioral techniques and imagery and things like that sort of traditional marketing based approaches, and it's only been very recently in the last couple of years that we've been able to begin to ply nurse signs techniques to try to see whether what one can derive in terms of analysis of brand connect them has some physical reality. And there I mean, they're only a couple of studies really have done that. I mean, one is is one that we've done, and I'll tell you about second another one that colleague Ming-hsu and his and his team UC Berkeley did which was to use brain imaging to look at the sort of distribution of the set of personality attributes that people tend to ascribe to brands. I mean, this kind of odd thing that we describe brands and the way we described people, and it turns out that when you do that those brands that sort of share similar aspects of their personality activate a similar pattern of areas across your brain. That are that are associated with that that sort of pattern of personalities, which I think is very very interesting. We done a kind of different taken a different approach in a in a recent study where we looked at the pattern of activation vote by say a particular category of. Of commodity like car, and then we looked at different brands of cars. So how does your brain respond to car and how how do you say like Ford Chevy BMW cetera? And what we find is that those brands that have evoked more than activation. Parents that's more similar to the overall category. Type car are the ones that are have the greatest market share. So and you see that that's the more similar that that is across people the better those brands actually do. And in fact, you can then begin to forecast how you can extend that brand or generalized two different product categories say computer from those patterns of activation. So it's early on. But I think is really really intriguing that that we can now take the the the kind of analysis that's been applied through imagery and through behavioral important things. Like that and bring that into the brain identifying uncover really that that, you know, the subconscious kind of tree and. Its roots that Leslie's been talking about and that really does have a physical reality in people's brains. I'm glad you mentioned cars, and you mentioned McDonald's. Because one of the things that struck me as I was reading your piece is that so many companies are now trying to build brands globally, and when you think about positive associations and emotional reactions. Have you found three or research or to your experience that the same factors in operate across different cultures? Or does something get lost in translation, and what are some of the implications for companies, I think that from a global brand standpoint, we're seeing more convergence than we are seeing divergence, and so the global marketing campaigns that companies do to build these businesses assuming that they do a good job of keeping those those brands healthy. And reinforcing all the right messages to keep them positive. We see great similarity from from region to region from country to country. There are some cultural differences that we need to pay attention to. But it is it is possible for the most part to have a global campaign. What Michael was talking about is the idea of convergence that there's we're seeing this great convergence of what brand stands for from one brain to another or it's remarkable that you can talk to two separate people. They can play back the same personality attributes about a brand. And what that suggests is actually an interesting concern. Which is as we go more and more to a I and segmenting the world into smaller and smaller pieces, we actually might be working against ourselves in terms of building brands because we want a brand to stand. That's the definition of a brand that it stands. For the same things for most people. And if we have taken down to the individual, for example, then we may start having issues and and denigrating the brand instead of building it. That's interesting, Michael. I mean, I agree with what Leslie said, I think that one thing that is clear from from many people's work as we don't know enough about cross cultural differences in the way that people people's brains process information, some things seem to be very very similar certainly the circuits are possessed by every single human being. But the culture you grow up in is going to shape the way that you process information, the convergence that I think we're seeing that Leslie talked about is maybe driven as much by the kind of globalization of brands themselves, right? That are actually beginning to train people's brains right to instruct them and to make them more similar in the way, they process information. So I think if you did if we. We were to do a similar analysis. Ten fifteen twenty years ago might look very different and ten years, hence, we may see even greater convergence that is so much hype that one hears about AI, and and and big data analytics and the ability to serve microtarget, hyper local create, hyper local strategies that are highly personalized it sounds from what you're saying that this could be counterproductive is that. And so what are some of the mistakes that companies may make in disregard? Well, I think that if you're trying to understand where somebody bought something last how long they stayed on this portal, how many seconds do they spend with this or that website that kind of individualization is really helpful for media planning and for reaching people. But I think we need to separate when we're talking about brand messaging there. We should really be trying to spend as much time as possible reinforcing a similar set of themes. Well, I think you're absolutely right. But I'm just kind of you know, as I think a little bit more deeply about it while while sitting in this chair, it's interesting to consider different demographics as well. So there there are some demographics millennials jenex or younger where especially very urban populations where the dynamic there so dynamic and they're changing so rapidly that kind of it's hard to predict right? Even if you were to hyper personalise is hard to know how you would really be able to track them, you're always one step behind. Whereas if you're kind of looking at middle America, if you're selling Eminem's or Hershey bars in Missouri or western Pennsylvania. I think those are, you know, those are communities in those cultures where there's often the. Are not as as dynamically changing. And there's going to be the that highly resonant brand image and brand message that is is not going to change, and it shouldn't change because it means the same thing to those people as it did mean twenty years ago. What you put a saying reminds me of of for talk that Warren Buffett gave at Warton when he was here few years ago, and one of the things still remember he said was that sheriff wallet follow share of mind? And and I was wondering what are some of the implications of what you're saying for companies that want to get that share of mind. What should they be doing? I think there are two things. First of all in the world of marketing, we have all been taught a particular principle ever since the trout and raise book came out in nineteen eighty. Positioning about for your mind. I mean that became like the bible to me is a marketer. And what that taught you was that your brand had to stand for one thing. And one thing only Volvo, equal say safety Chevy truck equals rugged, and what we now know is that that that point of view what while it's true that brands definitely have stake out territory in the mind, it that is a limitation that. I think is counterproductive you do not want your brand to stand for one thing you want your brand to stand for tons of things have robust, lots of neural connections. Lots of positive associations. Every single agency meeting. I've ever been in since I'm a an assistant brand manager inside the blue chip marketers. They would tell us you can only stand for one thing. And that actually is a recipe for sure. Shrinking your brand. So the first thing I would say is we need to let go of some marketing principles that we've been taught and rethink them. And the first one is you need to have lots of positive associations because that's the one the brand that becomes the dominance instinctive choice. And then the second thing I would say is that you actually need to keep nurturing this brand connect Thome and pay as much attention to it, quite frankly as much attention as you do to managing your PNL. Michael, your your thoughts on how companies improve their share of mind. I think would Leslie said is really good advice. I mean, the only thing that I would think about it. I don't know what you know, what the strategy here would be. But it's important recognize that there are real physical limitations on the way, our brains process information, and what that means is that in practice. More options. More choices make decisions more difficult and people tend to make more errors, and they take less. They take longer time to make those choices and they feel worse about them. So if you can kind of be first in market, or if you can really help to you know, maybe that means buying up some of the competition driving them out. I mean, I mean, these obviously, you know sort of first principles, but these are the this this limitation on our -bility to process information is not just an irrational, human psychology. It really arises from the molecular literally the molecular constraints on the way that brains, the limitations they have in terms of processing information, I have one last question for each few in that is if you were to imagine that in this room right now with us that are CEO's and chief marketing officers, and they won't one piece of advice from each few about how can we become better? Her at building brands. What would you tell them? Well, I'd tell him to hire us and. Right. I would say that they should realize that brand associations, and brand image is remarkably dynamic, you're not stuck with the brand that you have your brand can change our brains are learning machines. And so all you need to do is really understand. What's inside there, and you can add and change and transform it and nurture it. So that it it does it does better. And so there is absolutely untapped growth. Potential for every single business. That's an incredibly optimistic message to be told every single brand at every stage of the life cycle can grow more. It's just a matter of unleashing that growth from within Michael tank sewage who speaking with knowledge Horton. Thank you so much. Thank you, Michael. This was.

Interview Radmila S. van Os
"Welcome to the entrepreneur academy podcast, the place for entrepreneurs from entrepeneurship. Hello, everyone. Hi, this is Jim Thome gonna academy and today, I have to pleasure to talk about Miller, but Miller is actually the co founder of generation wine, not, and today, she's here to tell us a little bit about her story her journey how far she went so Hello admitted. How you doing? Great. Thank you, John. Very my pleasure to be here with you. Thank you very much. It's great that you here. Tell us a little bit about yourself just outlined a little bit where you from what you do. And what you actually gone through the stages to come to generation. Why not today? All right. So my name is Rodney less tunnel. Yet, each bundles originally from Belgrade Serbia, but to have been living around the world in different periods of my life, and Brussels is the fifth city in which unbelieving now and before that it was California. England Austria and Thailand. So obviously moving around and being exposed to different cultures have been. Let's say my big milestones. And for example, being in high school in the states then university years in England gave me a sense of independence, but also sense of responsibility, and empowerment. That sounds great. So what did you do in these countries? I mean, what was what, what reason did you have to go there? Well, I can tell you an episode from the early beginnings of this journey, and I was about seventeen years old, and I was in high school in the states and something I will never forget is living with my American host family and going to school doing things. Right. But then I made a huge phone Bill. It's it was about ten times bigger than they were used to so right there, ashamed and embarrassed. Didn't know what to do, but my host family did not actually decide to punish me instead of they found me, several student jobs and negotiated with the phone company that I pay back in monthly installments. Right. So this was my first lesson that freedom and opprtunity also carry must-carry responsibility along. And although bedtime, I felt. Felt very embarrassed later, I realized how powerful this lesson was right in my culture, where I come from this would've probably not played this way, my family would have supported me paid my debts. And so make it very easy for me. But in this way, I would have not learned this lesson, right? Later on I moved to England where finished my diversity, and from that point on, I started working, I've worked in private sector in public sector, worked for the government, or the non government, then I had this typical dream of, of any young person to make all change. And I thought being a part of the UN would would live this dream. However, this bubble bursted after couple of years. And I realized that instead of relying on others to drive change. I could do more small escaped projects, for example, which would be much more meaningful for me, and allow me to work in the field and see and experienced. Change firsthand. And this is one of the, the idea on generation, why not was born when you're talking about change, then you mean change towards the towards other people for other people or more change for yourself. What was the driving force on this? Actually it's altogether. I think veal tribe to do what changed for the others, but I learned to a life that this change my start from ourselves. So I started working on myself much more and one of their mouths twins was basically when I decided to go out in their doable in tune mission in two thousand thirteen and this is something I've never done in my life. Right. I was very busy, having this high-profile jobs in corporate world and international organizations. So never took time to get to know myself. Good enough and realize what are the skills I was missing. So this is exactly what happened. I went won't tiered. I spent three months in the middle of nowhere. Serving others helping children helping build a school for them. And this was the trigger for me that each and every of us does have this powering their hands is just tell you look at it. And when you decided you actually want to be mold changing yourself. Had the others. I can imagine this was quite an experience. I mean three months. It's well it's certainly enough. I guess, do understand very well, what's going on in these these areas where you've been? But when you when you look at these today, what was actually your main aspect of this of this of this experience. You know, when we all talk about today's changing something happening us. But did some did you view of life change or what actually happened? Exactly that made you go further and create something, something amazing generation Y known. It's basically the amount of unpleasant feelings, and this comfort that I felt while working in, in a power to stricken area and seeing how little -tunities children have today because living in Europe at a very luxurious life, made me take things for granted and think that's at people Edward are well, often, and pretty okay. So and working in this powerful bigger than his actions. I never actually had the chances to see that impacts of what happens as a as a result of our actions. So being on the field, having this firsthand experience, have changed me in a sense that I see. They're all interconnected, and we can all help each other for the sake of all of us being better together. And this is when I started thinking about what makes a real social impact, what makes a person actually want to help others. Why? And how do we create empathy? So all these things which I did not think about before they came into the how to say the first plan into my priorities. So this social mission is driving me, and I believe, because of my experience, I believe people should give it a go. And at least once go through such programs that change and transform them have the pout and transformed him different from anything else. Right. And it's a different thing than nine to five office work. So it's, it's stepping out of the conference, own and facing something, which you thought never exist or did exist, very far away hands. This is not of my business. But it is it is really in the end in this way of since then I've been focused on empathy and social impact oriented work, and that's the mission vision of generation. Why not? So with this, you want to give other people the opportunity to experience something similar what you did. And to maybe change their mind in a specific ways that is that the idea of it. Yes. Absolutely. The purpose of, of mine have been is Asian and, and mission and vision is, is to empower people towards authentic, leadership and entrepreneurship in a way because these social projects that exist, are, there are, are made to solve some huge problems, whether that's power t children's attention women sustainable economy doesn't matter, but these are people that are devoted to making a difference in the world. Right. They're not you end. They're not speaking as for small. Small just average people. But you can see their impact, and that is the difference. So in this way deprivation. Why not created these learning problems, which serve as a as a personal and collective tools for progress and each each of those programs is in a way of boot camp. It's out of the comfort zone. Exploration of skills? Potentials Celt self-awareness in readiness to go out there and lead lead differently right lead bit behind the people not in front of the people. Is this a specific market? You talk it too. I mean, a specific type of person who should come to you is this really for everyone. What's the age group mainly you, you dealing within your your organization? Thank you for this, wonderful question. The answer is Satan in the or hidden or not in the name and its generation. Why not? So it doesn't really have any limits or or ages or professions. It's for everyone who feels that they want to do something extraordinary to try to have more compassion, more empathy to try to apply what we call servant leadership, and all this, in a very open invulnerable manner, so to demonstrate what a person that comes to us goes through, I can I can mention what are the booth camps, called fume fail where people are invited for storytelling other kief years and failures fans in life and all this for purpose of reflecting and sharing. And in this sense empowering themselves towards openness. One ability truly there's are able to show the they're vulnerable sides ride there willingly. Sharing this those dark moments as they're one of the cornerstones of their emotional intelligence. Right. And these are key for compassion, and empathy. Obviously a huge boot camp is volunteering this experience serfs to awaken, the leadership in people awaken the entrepeneurship and embracing this service to others attitude awakens. Everybody from routine from a comfortable life, luxuriance life. And, and makes it into a life of meaning with purpose. So anybody who feels that they want to be empowered, who anybody who feels that they want something different. And the want to be connected to the impact that they make is welcome, an MVP called them generation, my not ambassadors. So what, what's your passion today? I mean, you've done a lot of things and you create these amazing organization and of course you watching people going through stages and through processes and really developing themselves in an amazing way. But what is it that gets you? What's your passion today? And what gets you up every morning. Why are you doing all this? My passion. Is that people realize their potential? It's the people take their their lives. Careers invest in these inter on into their own hands. Instead of relying in others that the others will create a better life for them change for them or something better as I've gone through the process, myself, I can say, I can say whether visit how it works and everybody who's involved in our progress. I checked them and I can see how they're transforming. So it's, it's just about having more freedom to be creative, and open to be more innovative and notched to blindly go searching for jobs, sending thousands of locations waiting for somebody else to recognize the potential new, but instead of taking the. Things in your own hands and trying, it's really about trying people have really afraid to take risks to try something new because they're afraid, but going through our programs makes them less afraid. And maxim more ready to take these risks. Wise, people feel their potential. They don't feel fear anymore. So you're really to get people if I understand this, right. To, to take people through that journey to, to come out at the other side too. You know, as maybe a change person, or maybe also, you know, with the completed inside about themselves and the world in general. Absolutely. Absolutely. That is Michigan brilliant. So where do you see yourself in five or ten years from now what's your plan? Maybe you won't believe me, but I'm not so much focused on the future. I'm Brad focused on the present and living and acting in the present will bring my future. I'm extremely content with what we can accomplish with our programs. But if you ask me for some specific goals, or objectives, I would say that I wish we would have a number of people involved in our programs or going through our boot camps, progressively growing. So if we had for example, two hundred participants this year, I would like the next two years, three hundred or more on Dublin, it doesn't matter, right? It's about empowering. More people and scaling out this idea on how people can be engaged in a more meaningful way. So that their skills, incapacities significantly increase. So, okay. So you just take it as it comes. But of course, you, you want to grow, I guess. No, you, you want this to you want to reach more people. Right. So this absolutely. This is. I mean on a personal level. I'd be happy in the future. I'm recognized as a change driver as a social change activists, and one of the players right in the empowering people towards realizing their pretension, if you could if I mean, one of the questions ask a lot, and I wanna ask that same question to you. If you had the chance to go back today, and tell your younger self and give some some tips, some advice, something what you could do different or better. What would that be? I would definitely giving advice, take more risks and there to do more things. When I look back over my early days, I was far too careful because as the young person, I went into the world and I had a lots of respect and responsibility towards my parents, who supported me. And I could not afford to fail. So I did everything to be on time to get with grades soom responsibility. Get the job as soon as I could. I would I would like that. I had more freedom to risk to try many things maybe to do many startups and fail more. So this is the advice. Let your voice be heard don't take don't think somebody else will will do something. Also, something think as if it's only you that can solve it. Now. That's that's sounds. Yeah. That sounds pretty good. I think that's a similar advice that we give myself. That's for sure. Sounds great. I just just one more thing before we before we end this. Now, you know if people are interested work with you, and take that journey with you. Where do they have to go? How can they contact you? So generation why not is a nonprofit organization, and we are based in Brussels Belgium, our offices in Alsina, vaulter. Strat more information you can get on our website, so generation, WN dot org, and they're also very present on the social media, Facebook, Instagram linking you're out there.

Clockwise 349: That Was Chef's Kiss for Me
"It's time for episode three hundred and forty nine of the clockwise podcast from relay FM recorded, Wednesday June, third, two, thousand and twenty clockwise four people or topics thirty minutes. Welcome back wise podcasts are four letter. Word is time and also tech. My name is Dan more and I am joined across the Internet by my good friend. Pal Dungeon Buddy and Co host Mr Mike. Hey doing today MICA? I've got a couple of four letter words but all. I think we've all got a few of those. But we also have to fantastic guests with us this week. A two mile left. It is our favorite podcast. Her and technology journalist in the entire country of Slovenia and I've met all the other ones so I can say that. It's Andrzej thome h High Andrzej welcome back. I and to my left is podcast or over at all about android on the twit network as well as material podcast here on relay FM. It is the effervescent the attic. Lawrence Ion. Hello Flow High Mica and Dan Thank you for that very nice intro I'm glad I'm glad they'll special. Well we also talking about technology so I'm GONNA kick things off this week by asking about voice assistance and I wanted to specifically do use voice assistance on your phone do use them frequently on your phone, and if so, for what, and if not, what's a feature? That would me be encourage. You used to use them more Andrzej I basically do not use a google vice systems on my phone like Amazon. I you do use it accidentally, I'll. Say that because I do Google home at home. That's okay, so we. Use, that all the time to kind of turn off lights, and my TV and then when I'll say. Won't say the phrase now, but when I say it, my phone will also pick that up, so then I'm basically just telling my phone to turn off my lights, but that doesn't really work with the Hugh stuff this on my phone, so that's kind of weird, but yeah. I basically don't I never use it like the is going to be my answer again and really sorry, but if we could understand Slovenian than maybe I'd use it a bit more often like the transcription stuff, but like we don't exist in that area like the prescription works in Google, but not really it's not as advanced or as good as it is in English and then. I don't really do much. English writing honestly so I Kinda, don't have much of a use case for the assistant even like the weather i. don't know I just at my phone some call I. Really I don't know what the use case would actually use it at all or more, I guess I'm not just accidentally for me. I use Amazon's virtual assistant. Alia say because for a lot of things we've got several different ECHO devices in my home and I will ask for whether I will ask for timers. I will ask for Quick facts I remember the other day I was trying to remember what What. ACID is that the drug acid is made up of to see if it actually was an acid. Dropped it on kidding. It's not legally binding and so I was curious about that. And then I also use. Siri to sometimes I'll use to control my television because I use a home pod next to my television. On my phone again with timers. As well as transcription, and I'd say probably more than anything else. I use my voice assistant for transcription so Dan I. Apologize For stepping outside of the bounds of your question if it's on how he's was, this isn't somebody phone, but Yeah, that's how I use voice assistance in general flow. What about you? Guys are beating me. You know I'm like super into the Google. Ecosystem I've got my android phones I'm constantly talking to I. Mean I'm always always squeezing my phone because that's like the thing you could do on the Pixel to talk to help you know. Bring up the assistant I fight with the assistant. Ask It to turn off lights turn on things. Playthings Ask at the weather like every single morning when I'm changing the baby because I got to figure out like. She getting a t shirt today, or is she getting a long-sleeved shirt you know like? I heavily rely on the assistant. But with the android eleven Beta, there's just like a huge emphasis on having more of the assist and more parts of the phone interface and I. Just think it's different. Hearing your perspectives and how you use assistance. On your varying on the ecosystems, you guys are in verses like how it's really being pushed on us in the android sphere I. I don't know if it's something that I that I consciously consented to you, or if it's something I fell into because it's a part of the operating system I think that is something that I'm GonNa Meditate on. Cheat a little bit in the way that I use on my phone, because the way I most often interact with it when I only have my phone on me is via my air pods. Because you can use the you can trigger series just by speaking to your pods, and often like I'm on a walk and get a text message or something I want to reply to it and I definitely use theory via the airports I also sometimes on my watch I feel like both that and the airports are more convenient than pulling out my phone. If my phone is already out, it's probably because I'm at home. At which point I'm probably using. Echo to do something like that. I think that for me. What would make the Syria on the phone and probably other devices much more compelling is just a ability to do more complex things, because it starts to very quickly. Get from like Oh. Yeah, set a timer or tell me the weather, but if I want to do anything that's going to require more interaction or more steps than that it's. Just faster for me to go, do it. I think that would really encourage me to use them more, so they take stress off of me. Instead of just adding stress, I liked the floated. You argue with them because. Yup, I do a lot of that. I do a Lotta yelling at at the Echo, and I feel a little bit about it, but such is life. All right thanks for your thoughts on that. Let's go to our second topic which comes from Andrzej. facebook launching a feature called manage beauty, which is supposedly to help us kind of delete old posts and photos and stuff, so I'm just. Asking you like if you do that as well if you delete stuff like old stuff or on any social media on facebook, twitter, because I use that tweet deletes service to Kinda periodically. Delete my all tweets audio at all into that originally like anything you say is on the Internet basically forever. boy. This is an interesting one, so I have gone back. By by hand I guess as opposed to an automated system and remove some tweets or facebook posts from ages and ages ago. that I just wasn't happy with anymore didn't want to be on the Internet as You know something that I chose to share with the wider world. Once I was a position where the wider world was paying more attention I. Guess. And but but as far as a means to automatically do this. No I haven't really gone through and done that. I. Had the. Blessing. Of of, joining facebook late. And so I was maybe a little bit more. Careful about what I chose to share on line, but then on top of that I at one point, had completely completely not just deactivated, but completely had deleted my facebook, and unfortunately I had to create a new account within the last year, or so because of a situation where. They had taken my photo and had used my face for some story that was one of those viral posts and had nothing to do with me, but made me look like a creepy person so the only way to report the fact that they were using my photo without my permission and tying to this post was by creating an account so that I could report the News I say the biggest scarecrows. You've ever seen organization that had posted this so I have one again, but now that I. Am in the position that I am and have the sort of media savviness that do today. There's nothing that I post on there that I wouldn't want to remain on there, so I have not had to really use these tools but I as far as having them I think it's fantastic, because a lot of people post things and aren't necessarily thinking about it when they do, and we all learn and grow, and in theory, and hopefully get better as we do and yeah, I think that people should have the opportunity to. Make corrections to mistakes that they may have made. Flow what about you? I think one of the hardest parts of my have. My generation is the fact that we have come up through adolescence on the Internet. I mean I started at a very young age ten eleven years old, being on the Internet in in the nineties. And when twitter started I joined joined there too, and I was in my I was in my early twenties, fresh out of high school and I was kind of an idiot I. posted a lot of a lot of stupid things I have not. Fully gone in and deleted those things on facebook where I was also one of the I you know. I was part of the original college email address loggins again. I deleted the original profile that I had there from college I. Don't know what's happened to any of those pictures. I was tagged in Then I had another facebook page I also deleted that just because for me, facebook was a very toxic environment, but I do think about that a lot while. WELL MICA was sort of chatting. I quickly looked up. Whether twitter is still archiving. Are tweets the Library of Congress? It turns out that they are now only selectively doing so, but I was just thinking about that like having. Those random bursts of thought, just kind of becoming public record. It is something that we still have to. Something that we still have to reconcile with and I think now that I'm older I'm more careful with what I'm posting testings out on people before they kind of go to the internet which I didn't do before when I was younger so I think overall I I do have an intention to go out and Kinda start during my social media, a little bit more and and kind of buttoning up a little bit because it is a, it's not as cute as it used to be to have like all your feelings spill. Via Cute thing that you could just like you guys to see how I used to think. I'm a journalist that works and lives online and. You know. These are things that I really need to do. Plus when my daughter grows up I, don't want her to Quebec. I realized the comparatively at least. Probably to Mike and flow I was older when I got on social media because it wasn't really a thing until my late twenties. and. The way digging up my my space or friendster patients. Let me on. which are probably out there somewhere? God knows, but I don't. Even I'm not even sure it, but I think part of it is that I find that I tend to be someone who thinks a lot about what I post in the first place and part of that is I think you're exactly right like I. I think at one point like I was like oh I posted like an angsty song lyric. Lyric I got a bunch of people like Oh. What's going on with right? I realized I. Don't want this in my life I'm just going to be really careful about what I post, so I do a lot of things right like right tweets and then never post them like I start typing it out and I'm like no, that's just going to cause more trouble than it's worth I'm just going. Going to delete that not even worry about it, and that's not to say that I don't post things. That I regret I. Definitely Post stuff and have had people like comment on it, and then realize like you know I didn't I didn't consider how that would play or read, and and maybe I just use it like the wrong word, choice or something like I'm just going to delete it or I'm. I'm going to delete it and then reposted like better phrasing, so yeah, I don't really use those tools. I will say my facebook like exposure is very low. I post almost nothing facebook, but yeah other than that. I tend to just be careful. What I post in the first place on wraps up there. Yeah, yeah, I'm kind of the same way I kind of figured it out that you know. I'm no longer that stupid as it was when I was younger. Kind of think about it more before I posed by the the the reason I did go through with the whole deletion. Stuff was Kinda because I also have that sort of love, great relationship with Facebook, because a lot of people over here out on facebook and I have great for my podcast, which is kind of very active, and it's kind of Nice to. Have a place with the listeners to kind of talk about stuff, but that's basically all I do that now like I. Don't post like any sort of personal stuff like I used to and. Would with the twitter I. think There's a difference there. Because with twitter, a lot of the context can kind of go away after a time in occas, it's tweets and. An account in a reply chain Kinda goes away and stuff gets lost, and then you can end up with a tweet. It's kind of like looks even more horrible than it was. In its genetic version, and the and I didn't want to do the whole by hand kind of Cherry pick what what I was gonNA, delete the I, basically the archive, and then just nuked everything, and that's Kinda how I dealt with it, so yeah, a bad went on smarter now, which is nice for people. Vary, adult and smart trends. Yeah, that's nice. It's nice to see that all right. That's top down two topics. Let's to go. Which of course means.

I have been having the utmost. Getting any sleep I. Keep Waking I. Don't know for the past promptly three weeks wake every forty five minutes, or so in Anik and it's just been. It's been anxiety, thing but despite the fact that I'm having trouble sleeping. I saw to get up in the morning and it had me wondering how folks wake themselves up in the morning Do you use your phone alarm? Do you have a motor that you stick underneath your mattress? That vibrates the entire bed to wake you up. Those are very real Tell me how you wake yourself up in the morning so before Mona. Would use the Lenovo smart clock. It's a cute, little gadget and I like it because you can basically set a Google assistant routine on your phone, and then when you dismiss the alarm in the morning, it will automatically fire off that assistant action and you know, turn on lights. You told turn on. Tell you the weather. Tell you your schedule, etc.. And, so that was kind of how I wake up in the morning back before I was a parent. Now, I've just thrown all like alarm out the window. I don't need one because at seven am every single day. I hear a little baby stomping feet now, which is what she does instead of crying, which is a little bit air. Stomping her feet because she's she's just has energy, and it's ticket going so that's that's my non tech, nowadays former technology. Yeah my actually my technology is very similar. It's called my wife because my wife has an actual job she needs to get up for. And back when she was going into the office, more regularly, reschedule had her getting up around somewhere between six and six thirty. And I, don't. I'm a layabout so I? Don't have to get up that early. Usually but I also have a lot of trouble generally going back to sleep so these days she gets up a little later, and she only goes in the office a few days a week, but yeah, so that tends to be it before before we live together. Really set an alarm I got to the point where my body would just wake me up around roughly the time I needed to get up most as. I used to a little bit us like I just have an old clock radio. That's my clock. Radio is a it's from a company I think no longer exists, but it had a thirty pin. ipod documented because I tested years ago, but it's great. It has great sound. It's got a good radio does have an ox port, and all this stuff until I used to just set it to the radio station and wake up to that 'til like the news on Andrzej, so I put I put it in the the Google Sheet. Link because that's the only place, I could find my actual radio clock that I. Forget next on my bats since. Nine hundred ninety I'm not joking. He's the Nokia CR nine one. Oh, which I found on the website, the Radio Museum Dot Org. And because I. have sort of the year of manufactured in on it. It just says nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five, and then to question marks. Mine's black. This one's wife and you can seek the buttons. Minds completely black, so it has another yellowing. That's the that's the radio clock. I've cut next to my bat since I was like very very little, but like flow side two years ago. I got a new gadget. She's called these. She's my daughter and that's basically. That's scholar. Wake up! Like flow said when she used to cry, that was kind of them the collection and now she basically just kind of wander in just starts yelling name so. I yeah, I just you guys kind of Oh. I just wake out when we bought it until at that's. You know. GonNa. Experience that probably so yeah, wow! Exactly what I was hoping for, and I appreciate all your answers. there. I tend to use the alarm on my phone. Although more often, I am using the alarm on my partners phone because he gets up before I. DO typically so this morning I was up at five, and then went back to sleep for a little while, and then my alarm was smy I. Wake Up, so it was both this morning. Thank you all for your answers on that. Let us go to our final topic, which comes from flow I, just want to get everybody's thoughts on this. Because this is something that we andy and NOCCO and I bring up on material podcast here. In the real, FM network what role does Silicon Valley do tech companies really play in in just kind of the way it responds to what's happening in the public and so this week we were supposed to have today in particular I wouldn't have been on this podcast. previously because I would have been covering the android eleven Beta online event, which was supposed to happen this morning, but Google postponed it, and it hasn't been officially confirmed. But there is an understanding that the reason that it was delayed or put off is because of. What is happening in? Right now which is. Mass protesting of police brutality, but it made me think. Does this set a precedent for the way that tech should be acting? Based on what is happening within humanity, because oftentimes we see that there's kind of a distance between tech, and and with the people are up to kind of thing, but I'm also curious like what does it mean to to us all as users to see tech companies kind of respond to what's going on in this manner. Calling it a response for small is I think over selling it a little bit, and that's the case for a lot of these companies right like on the one hand. It's good that they do speak up about it on the other hand. It's also necessarily self-serving, because if they have their event in the middle of this, it's not going to go well for them, so they are smart enough to realize that and you know Kenny enough to decide to postpone. I think that's probably the right move, but I don't want to give them too much credit for that. Because again like I, said I think there's a hefty dose of self serving. In that. Just, in general, set a precedent. I guess but. That's that's probably what it should be I I had to do was show yesterday and you know for started out talking with my co-host I'm like can I think of anything less important than a tech podcast right now? It just? Who Cares at that point and we ended up thinking about it, and we found a way to address it within the confines of the show. But even with that I felt very much like it's just not that important, so I think we're already dealing with an unprecedented situation with a pandemic this year, and certainly this only you know makes matters more complex, but I. do think it was on the whole right decision. That's not to say that companies can't always do more Andrzej well. As far as the president's go away. What's going on in America now, just sort of as an outside absurdities fatty we like. This is. This is up to eleven from what I've seen. Stuff that goes on in America. We depend them, and then this whole thing. This is I I think even if it serving for the tech companies I don't think there's really a choice that like I do understand that like any event. We really not serve them well whatever, but like I just feels like they don't like. It's not even a choice at this point, and just to kind. Kind of contrast that with know our little corner of the World Slovenia. We also have put out this going on right now. Let's just say it's we just going to keep using not go overly political like it's kind of like like Dan said. All of this kind of does not seem that important. You know even as a sort of a journalist in tech journalists as well. It's Kinda hard. To see where that line is where you're just I'm just going to talk about new iphone now. And then I like I said like half the world's buttoning would part of the journalism modern that Kinda sh does have a role in all of this, but it's not new products and Betas, basically so weird as good and not important I. Think are could good descriptors for A lot of what I've seen. I've struggled. As a black man and as A. As a podcast stor tech journalist. Presenter sort of person all this week. with whether. I should be doing shows and things like that whether I should be talking about. You know what what products are here and and that kind of thing and and ultimately. Each time I've tried to use the platform that I have to continue to speak up and speak out and that feels like the best role that I can play so in that sense I feel that it is a good thing that companies are doing that as well. Yes, we can look at the fact that it ends up being good for their bottom line, and and the sort of cynical. Side of things that that it's you know it's performance of it's this. It's that, but at the same time I will tell you that it felt really. Can't curse on the show felt really doggone good to see to go from hearing. The leader of our country. Threatening to Go all out in terms of military force, and then to go from that and see nickelodeon topping two young kids to see apple basically. Making you if you used apple music, making you pay attention to see Google. Say you know what this isn't the time and I swear the the the biggest most bow for me, and all of this was to see the call of duty. Folks were waiting to release call of duty, because if there is one group who needs to be paying attention to. To this, it is the group that has call of duty waiting for the new call of duties to release, I was that was chefs. Kiss for me and so yes, there is cynicism to be had with all of this because. Yes, ultimately it. It's a good look for these companies to be doing so, but while it is a good look it also does. Force more people to pay attention and in that way I think that it's a positive thing. Flow. What are your last thoughts on all this? I appreciate you all going I. Know this is a tough topic to to kind of talk about just on the fly like this. I do want to say that as a tech journalist. I. Appreciate that I. have this time to on what's happening in the world then instead of having to focus on working and just like trying to get through that work, so that's that's my personal take on it, I'm GonNa use that opportunity to do what I can on my on my side to be a better person so good way to frame it. All right four topics down. We had just enough time for a bonus topic and I tell you this week's episode of clockwise is brought to you my modern workplace, a pike as from Microsoft.

Ep.10 | Oh, We're The Canaries
"Previously on the Tantalus tales gonna you're gonna finish what killer. What we only need one alive. That is the minimum. Yes, you would like to have one to live. I guess just one alive. You don't eat all of them. Yeah. Yeah. Very it was supposed to be stars. The script said stars. Try it again. We're trying to get you now have an unconscious individual in a grappled rope tied individuals or anything you would like to do Cosby. Your lights we've been expecting new guards for weeks. The raiders are getting bolder pet rocks, all sorts just even to, you know, like a tourist guide for boulder. Colorado. For some reason, this fantasy world has a tourist guide for Boulder, Colorado. Yes. It was it was a limited edition. Yes. Welcome to the great river mining company. Let's get down to business. So you guys last time came to this plane, and countered, some thieves beat them soundly, then were taken up DeVos, the head of the great river mining company. And as far as everyone knows you are the guards that were hired onto day shipping. You're talking about we are the guards. You are the guards we get paid after this. Yeah. You. I assume you will get paid. Yes. Has the three of you sit in this large entry room surrounded by books listening to this balding middle aged human explain the job at hand. He explains he as he speaks, excuse me, as he speaks, a man, walks in to stand beside Zavos. He is similarly dressed is wearing jeans blazer and a t shirt with a swirling, arrow logo. Couple of water in his handwriting paper Cup water. I assumed it was more like a coffee mug. Very Silicon Valley. Probably more like a smart water. Smart water. Coconut, coconut, water coconut. Yeah. Symbol on the inside of you pay attention. The inside of the inside of the mug says you've been poisoned. Yeah. But Zavos explains now miners are having issues. They're convinced that there's something down there in the minds that is causing them great frighten, but my viceroy of dynamic integration solutions, Dr content he gestures to the man. That's standing next to assures me that there is nothing to be concerned with sure there are natural inhabitants down, there, your occasional rat, or Belette. He coasts over the fact that there are actual threats in the mind to his workers. I work know what they're doing. And know that they're doing fine work. I even put in a second portable lavatory at, at the entrance to the mine, they've had everything they could want what I've hired you three to do. Blatantly overlooks ice. As he says you three. Together. Took walk. Piece. Distract to yell. Get him from hind. What I've hired you three to do is ensure the miners that there is no issue down in the minds. If they see that I've hired someone to protect them from whatever creepy crawlies lurk deep down in the minds. They'll work tenfold with them going deeper. I'll finally put Muskie Reeves in his place. Isn't it? Obvious. Now. Completely obvious. Now, I'm not telling you who it is. Okay. They'll never know you three will leave immediately. Join the miners, and convince them everything is fine. Sure some of them may die. But that is the price I'm willing to pay knew he was gonna say that. Because he's deck. It's all a part of running a business. You have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. Shaved me, bro. Or we had out. And content wakes walks up to you and. Oh, god. I need a voice for content. Don't I? Kermit the frog or something. Oh, god. Sherman, the frog who no I don't think. Now it's difficult. You're right. Not asking you guys ever again for help. Then you do. And then it's horrible. I dunno make him sound Scottish. Whatever. Oh, god. God, his know that. I cannot do curb it cannot his. Oh, god. No, I don't think I could. Yeah. Yeah. I do that. Yeah. We thank you for your help. This. Okay. Yeah. No, no. We're going to go with it. Thank you for your help reassuring are valued employees is of the most important s-. If you'll find anything please hesitate to bring this information to my attention. Now, let me walk you to the door. You'll start immediately as you are shown out by content a whistles calling the cart to the main gate. We have to get that guy, some flown as geez. He looks you over and states. Wow. Noticing your deputy badges. Gladys's Zambales hired some professionals time. And then he promptly shuts the door on you. You make your way out to the gate where an old dwarf holding the reins of a horse drawn cart. Jabs his thumb towards the back of the cart, and he barks, then I'll take your down to the mining town. What do you do? Because. Cornelia car. You don't need to introduce yourself to everyone. You say that. Most people aren't that interested in you. So just you know, they may be interested in hiring. If they wanna know already higher. They'll ask. Yeah, but not be hired for other work to, and you get paid for that, we're going to focus on one quest at a time. How many how many side quests are you going to take on all of them? You have to finish all the side quests before you do the main quests give you to walk the hallway that we ride. Now, did you just say no to goal money? That's not a job. You're right. It's a chore. I mean if he's paying you for it is technically job when maybe I always maintained for the jobs that I want doesn't mean I'm going to take everything. I prostitute. If people hand me golden, the matter what. Wants that from you so you don't have to worry. That's not nice. That's nice. Just get in the car. This guys probably wonder what the heck we're doing. I'm already in the cart. I just wanted to announce myself fine. I'll get all step in the curtain. And as you guys all sit down the, the gruff dwarf flicks, his wrists in the horse bowling, the cart begins, trotting down the hillside toward the mining town. What color is the horse? It is dirty. That was not it is. I guess a color. It was a shade of white before becoming a horse drawn carriage horse is now colored it is. Now, dirt colored I feel like it's worship using a horse. Like a ram or big lizard, or, you know, a big lizard. But if there were giant horse as an option, people would choose giant horse over, you know, I'm tired of your stereotypes of doors. Pick goat Aram. Mount. I love that. Yeah. As person I would ride a horse, fuck it. It's a lizard now. Oh my God. It did that magically just turn to lizard. No, it looks like a horse. But it's got a lizard tongue. Okay. Out a lizard tongue. It looks it looks back at you. And goes. It's kind of kind of you his. All right. As you re enter the valley, the smog begins to surround you, again, a gross Hayes about you. There is a definite difference in the quality of air down here as compared to the Bosa state. Going to the poor people district. Laminant. Yeah. Your eyes scan the surroundings many doors wander around with mining equipment in caked in dirt some returning to their modest homes. Others leaving said, Holmes still dirty, but a little less and toward the mines it appears bleak. There's the occasional child running by kicking a rock, but for the most part, counteract. Ball. It's a small, it's it's how they clean themselves. Yeah. For the most part. Everyone seems very sad and dreary, as the cart reaches its destination the dwarf, driving coughs and crooks where your gear off? Marlboro. Geez. Okay. As you shuffle off the cart out of the corner of your eye. You notice some hustle and bustle as you hear. No, the end is near the people need to. Guard tosses a sack over the doors head and drags him out of you behind you is the entrance to the mine. It's large and supported by would prosper, you assume probably from the valley of trees that was once in the area. There are two guards that stand at either side of the entrance with Albert's and dirty, but still pretty decent armor, what do you do salt? The guards armor travesty king fucking disgrace. You guys aren't mining. What do you do? Thirty God, they hired people like what are, what are they doing without us? Chris do you shine his armor? Is that what you're doing? What am I mom? Castigating him on the on the shoddy state of his person. Fucking. Do you. Sorry. Yeah. Did you have thirty armor at some point? No. This who concerned about other people. Fends my sensibilities. Yeah. I bought some earlier. No problem discount discounted sensibilities. He doesn't have any sense, though, just. Just. Yeah. Just disabilities. So what would you like to do other than berate the the guards past them? Walk into the minds. Yeah. All right. As you enter the mines you notice that there are rats scurrying about. I guess Zavos wasn't just rambling about nonsense, but nobody is afraid of the rats. They're more pests than anything. The mine is lit by torches every so often, but not enough to give a constant light. There are spots, where the darkness is greater dwarves, shuffled past you either heading to work or leaving from their shifts. None of them pay any particular attention to you, as they've been at this for so long that all they know is the dole repetitiveness of work. Any of you proficient in history? No. No. Well, all right. Well, one of you whoever has the highest. One is history intelligence. So levers got the highest end. Go ahead and roll history. Chet for me. I got a twelve. After teen. All right. Got a fourteen fourteen. Yeah. That'll do it as a cultured elf of slightly higher class. I guess. You know, that dwarves usually take great pride in their work or Nate carvings. Like we think mines of Moria. For example. But here in these mines, it's incredibly rough and ugly, these doors don't seem to take any pleasure or pride in the work that they're doing. Some signs of the monopoly of tro pm dependency topple. There is one main wide path heading down into the earth there. Two tracks going down empty carts heading deeper as Carson that are not necessarily full come back to the surface if it wasn't obvious prior. They seem to be running low of tro pm, they need to dig deeper and deeper to get less and less. There are tunnels branching off the main path as you look down this main paths, you feel a slight tremor. Shit. Interesting. What do you do? I turn my shade down, and go really dark. You get real dark real fast. I put on my sunglasses. Then I mean darker. Only these Bacar has been outside for a little bit at least. So you should have a decent charge on your daylight saving sword. I guess I could pull it out. Pull it out. Why do we not want? Yeah. Fuck it whip it out. Okay. I'm hiding. That is important to us just hiding in the corner. Crumbled up with is just dark as hell. The dark. Little just a little half lean Batman. Yeah. Exactly. So he's like tonight. So that might we do a Moshoeshoe scene where like I lied a little light as close to us, and it's a big shadow of dragon. Just got ice behind you. Ruffling your Cape in the wind. Puppets. Well, what would you like to do your? You're not quite deep into the cavern, so. I mean, the miners know best where everything is located. We probably ask them, where you'd like to. Yeah. Are any of them look like they are management, like I would like to speak to your supervisor. Oh, hell no. It is all just as you stated. It's for people. It's my people, I have to. If you tell me where that rumbling came from. Are you? You stop someone and said you give them to goals says that he has to gold. So tell him where this is he's, he's going to give it to. The rich I am. Look at how rich I am compared to you. I have two gold and how you should tell me where those tremblings game from the one you stop says. Short thing. My, my fine Lord. They, they come from down deeper. I try to avoid the deepest parts. Do does anyone have math? The lines. Oh, no. We don't we don't keep no maps, miss, ma'am. Sir person, sir. I'm sorry for you. When the car. Names. There was an accent easy to. Barrels. It's nervous around new people. Don't you know? Oh very very nervous. I try to avoid the deepest parts. But if you're looking for action, that's definitely where you've got goes. Spoiler that Laura explore that. Willing to lead us. You don't need a leader scope one. As can we? There. I got a job to do. I'll give you another gold. No, I don't think he's going to take. Year's pay ten years. That's at least a couple of years thing. Yeah. No, he's not gonna. He goes, oh, no, I can't show you all this nice goals. You're giving me I I got a job to do. And if I don't Mr. post will have my head. Mr zavos. The one hire us, we can't do our job on those. We guide. Just got to follow the tunnels down, sir. Okay. Is there a cart that goes that way? Oh. Slower than any of the carts. So much less work. Yeah. I was hoping like reenacted dot com level on the way to get down there. Find a Horta bananas golden bananas. Anyway, if you really feel like you gotta gotta ride one of them carts. I I'm sure I'm sure they won't to will mind if you have at one of the empty ones going deeper it's, it's a bit of a leisurely slow ride down. And I will do that. Okay. Just gonna walk. All right. In the cart. Day. How far ahead of I going to be to them? Oh, you can walk much faster than they can get. Just wait for us to get there. So whenever you're gonna find whatever it is. I. All right. Well, do you. Do you think they're going to be talking? They don't ever. I'm rested. Well as you descend deeper into the mine, whether that be by cart, or by by your own feet, the air gets colder, but Bacar as you are the first down in that region. You notice there are many, similar many smaller paths, excuse me, branching off the main cavern that leads deeper. Could you roll a perception check for me car? Personal. Ruled all their dice. You gotta take the average of all the dic- role, so that's gonna be high. Number. That would be a D twenty I have role that I just looking at my perception, so seventeen seventeen that'll that'll you'll see something with that it, one of the branching paths, you see a dwarf frozen in fear. What would you like to do? Why is is there anything that would dictate? What he's frozen all you can see is that he is frozen in fear, or I'm gonna towards them with my sore pointed out with your sword of lights pointed out. And call him, sir. Are you in trouble? Are you a danger to? Certain certain sir, sir, sir. He does not hear you as you approach the door. You see he's not alone. There are several dozen doors all clad in mining, gear frozen expressions of fear on their faces one weird avant-garde art show to you wait for your friends like a basless thing. Or a Medusa thing. Why is it always snakes? Have Patrick -cation have aspect? Poetry's. They still a lot then. Maybe so. T N Orin you can see the car down this narrow passageway. Do you guys run up to her just continued to ride? I, I think that I'll jump out in walk now. I'm. I'm still. Leisurely. I'll I'll, I'll fast walk power. Walk down there. Yep. I'm gonna hope the doors or try to stop him from doing that God. Like stab him. I'm just gonna like tap your finger instead or like you're like a stick while your sword. You just ask him for them to happen. All I can fix. Sure is car. Just taking his sword. And just like running it through. Like, slowly, I get before. So if you're gonna use your sorta to, to touch him. Yeah, I'm just gonna like tap his foot or something, 'cause I wanna see it film Liu. So you tap his foot, and you hear a clank. A more of a like metal bouncing off of stone. That's. As he look at them longer. You realize they aren't moving at all. They are actually stone statues perfect representations of dwarves made of stone. I assume Orrin has got up by this point t-. Are you still? Behind g. I would I wanna meet the artist that made all these wonderful representations of this woven, whining community because this is some wonderful art here. I'm sure you will sculptor who did this genius. You know, once you meet the artist you might end they may one of you two. Sterilize finally see secure what other. Thing is going to turn into stone. What? Right. All right. I'm here. Right. So. There's nothing there's no honor greater than someone trying to kill you is it really just says, you know, you matter to them. You match a lot of people, then I'm very important people know me. Oh, yeah. So as a T catches up to you in the corner of his eye. He catches a slight glisten in the torchlight further down the path. What would you guys like to do? Pick-up dwarf you throw rock. Break. I assume that they are incredibly happy. He's going to pick up a normal Rockin throw it. All right. Utah, Utah, so rock towards the glisten and nothing appears to happen. No sign of movement or anything just a glistening in the distance car out a flaming arrow fired a Senate Ireland fire with I don't think I have any EROs meant for that because you don't have a torture anything nearby. There are. There are torches lighting up the corridor. All right. Well, it's thing has a lightening effect on it. Like does that stuff up? Electric glow. It would be like it'd be like a tracer bullet. Yeah. It'd be like a lightning strike. So you get a bit of a. All right. Can I take one of the tortures in, like strap it onto my arrow and shoot? I mean you can certainly try. That's a little heavy for an arrow not then. I should light an airline fire and shoot at t. If you wanna dry I have no other better. Yeah. So let's do the crazy thing. Healthly. There's not methane in here. We would have blown up. It was. I think we would already blown up. There was method in here besides don't we used to be the canary right? Now, listen. I. Oh, no. He he, he breeds stuff. So I guess we're the canary. Aren't. All right. I'm gonna grab the. That could try to light arrow on fire is best. I can. Okay. Cool. Take aim and fire, not at, but, like Milo over whatever's, listening to try not hit it slugging to see what it is. Sounds good you knocking arrow back after lighting and send it towards the glistening. As it hits the ground at burns for a moment. But then starts to fizzle out. Something around the arrow is glistening, almost like diamonds are scattered about. Star walking closer. I keep him cover. Okay perfect. I'll take. You're taking the rear. Of course you are. That makes it stark. Right. It is dark. Yes. I would just like to point that. There are blind site for their. Yeah. No, it's there are torches. So there are spots of darkness. But if. Tunnel was no, no. It is. No. There are. There are torches. It's just not torches like lighting up the entire thing. There are spots darkness. Kuku Reinsch, cool as you approach the area. You saw glistening, you find the source there's a small bag of gems line. Landing bag near a pile of stone would someone like to roll me an investigation check role with the trap. Roll anyway. I got a seven. I gotta talk. I guess are so bad. I mean. Yeah. No, it's the gods of dice. Twelve is. Twelve is find enough to see this Bacar as you look at the. Bag of gems. You notice that the pile of stone next to it, isn't just just a pile of stone in the pile. You see what appears to be a foot what and near the pile foot? Yes. Like a rock foot near the pile of Rodman's. Yeah. Leaving against the wall. This is talking about earlier, this must've been one hell party on here, everyone, is this stone. She's. Should made that guys yet. Yeah, there's a there's a stone foot in the, the pile in and next to the pile. You see the top half of the rest of a stone elf in a robe with a tiny wizard hat birthday at right? Yeah. Kinda kinda just you would you expect like the n sid hat. But it's more like a party hat. Yeah. Small small tiny hats and. Next to him. There is a, a book line on the ground with your arrow hanging out of it. On the cover. The cover is definitely seen better days. There is a scorch Mark from your aero which makes the cover hard to read, but from what you can gleam it looks like it says Thome of spells volume to that sun better looking at. Tia's picking this up. I'm sure as hell not. I would let me. So you've got a tome of spells and a bag of gems. The tome of spells if she is picking it up you have. What appears to be the tome of spells while Eum to inside. You have sixteen different spells that you are able to cast after learning this. You don't have to know the bells you just have to read them off these spells that you have will send it to you via message as well. So you can have the, the thing as it is. But the spells contained in this are the spell tough to dead. Message. Cause fear. Wish. Continual flame? Crown of madness. Identify. Liens tiny hut. Dream. Made hand. False life. Fire bolt. Good berry. Hold person. Ice storm. And ten servers floating disk. Those are the sixteen spells in, in volume two of the Toma, spells, holy cannoli. So, you know, have all of these yet in with this book, you can cast two of these per short rest. A bad idea to get can use it the tone of spells volume two appears to have all of these spells. Right. Would you say that we got like a good amount of gems in respect? I'd say you got a good amount of gems in there. Do you guys want to pick up the, the gems? Put them in the bag of holding. Sure. Do you need to call Vern at all to I kind of want to you kind of want to? Yeah. Right. Well, in that my coin you can rub your going that, that works. Rub. Your cohen. So you pick up the gems, and you rub your coin and. Vern suddenly appears before you his comb grin turns into wide eyed surprise what in the seven hails, have you dragged me into boys? Do you have any idea what this place is? Yeah, it is ninety two seventy three. Hey, everyone.

And a huge shoutout to our patriots over at patriotic. You guys are phenomenal. But I'll see you at the end. Enjoy the rest of the story. Well, well, yes, it is tell to ninety two seventy three but this is a Gorn bad bacilus nest. Did you not see the molten skin in the corner? There'd be a better PM. Mighty good reason you brought out here boys. We need you to distract while we run away. We also have some, some gems. Verne's eyes light up when he sees the gems. Well, yes, those are quite nice, aren't they? I suppose you can be forgiven for dragging me out here, come by the shop when you return and as payment for now, some good information for you boys, other than powerful magic there's only one other cure for Petra fixation the stomach acid of the Vassilis return stone to flesh that may be useful. If you are unlucky enough to run into one of the damned beasts. May fortune be with you. I have question. He disappears. And then he reappears but if fortune isn't with you. These might do the trick. Holds out his hand in it appears to be three scarves. Four three scarves in a smaller scarf, more like a. Like a bandanna of sorts. They glimmer slightly in the poor lighting any hands one to each of you. His nine red. In the dim lighting it just looks dark. Favorite? Yeah. They have you. As a handsome to you. He says, if you hear the beast coming put these on you'll sacrifice your site for a time. But at least you won't turn out like this, sorry, bugger. He then kicks a chunk of the broken stone wizard and it goes clanking down the tunnel. Get out of here. Wouldn't want my valued clientele becoming some bacilus DIY garden. Gnome what I. I'll wait till you return to the institute, becoming a stone statue wouldn't really agree with me. It'd be weird if it did he then. Yeah. He then disappears, the scarves, he gave you there, simply ornate, scarves, and one smaller bandanna for. You know what five? Yes, awesome. He knew how much you enjoyed the purple lilac color. So he brought one specifically for you. It matches your hat. Yes. Yes. There are nights, scarves, that if you were to tide them around for is. Statement you got to keep up around your neck for now. Okay. So now you have to scarves. Yeah, you will be blinded when you're wearing these, and we'll have disadvantage on most roles, but as Vernon explained you wouldn't be able to be petrified by the bacilus stare should you run into one. I think we're gonna put our. I am not. No. I will. All right. Well, you guys have the tone Thome of spells volume too. Yep. You have a I don't think you gave them to earn yet. I think he just left. And when you get back to the shop, you can give them to him, so you have a bag full of various gems. I, I can only assume that, that that wizard with the tiny hat, probably had this bag of gems. Maybe as a payment, perhaps, he was one of the other guards that were hired to. To protect people. So we weren't the first. Not at all. This has been going on. If you believe you were his first. You're sorely mistaken car. Came being the second. I just wanna know how many how many before. Yeah. Twenty-three holy crap that they'll die. So as you stand there in the hall with the stone doors. You hear a his- coming from the way you entered, then one heavy footstep, followed by another and another. What do you do? Get creature on quick. Restless. Don't have. The fly her have little light jet packs for God's sake. It's a sink, isn't it? Well, if you want to do a nature check, you're more than welcome to. Things, I don't think in this particular fantasy universe. Pretty sure their four-legged, aren't they? I don't know what you see. I got. Thirteen they're gonna maintain an eighteen will give you a little better Chuck for that. I assume being I ranger you probably know a little more, but Orrin, you hear the hissing and, you know, from your ranger experience that combined with the, the stomping and the fact that there are stone. Dwarves all around you, you, you definitely realized that this is a battle of thought was expecting fight fo foam, and all that, there are eight legs Vassilis have eight legs. Yep. Snakes with legs. Yeah. Essentially. Yeah. Yeah. What your Bacar what year thinking of is a greater bacilus, which is the more snake, like and more in the realm of Harry Potter? You guys. Here the rumblings. Of. This beautiful gentleman. Oh, fun. Yeah. I guess. Scarves now. So we don't. Yeah, you probably don't want to actually look at this person. Yeah. Pon goes to go. Yeah. So as you cover virtually is you hear the bacilus coming closer, though. You can't particularly see said bass lists. You feel the vibrations in the cave floor. I want you to roll initiative for me. Nineteen. Twenty. Wait, those sixteen. Gary sixteen. T-. You got an ad twenty crack. Sixteen a three the Basle est got six I thought he was going to go last, but, I guess not, I'm not, but Karsh oaks. But. Yeah. You gotta have somebody bringing up the rear. I have to have a king somehow. Got to have a king. Several has a king coming up from behind. You is a Astle. Est it's crawling on eight media lags it hisses in. Yeah. Yeah. No, you saw the picture, meaty it hisses and rears back on its hind for legs and stomps near you, causing the ground to rumble t you have. I dips on this guy. What are you gonna do? I think I'm just gonna do a nice little Helo with the Eldridge blast. Hello with the Eldredge last go that you do have to roll the hits. Right. Or is it? Yeah. Yep. Go ahead and roll for hit. With this advantage. What does that mean I forgot? You roll to take the lowest with disadvantage. It would be seventeen with how that's that's good dude. Yeah. That hits what's the damage? To detains six. You can't read his dice either. I'll just read seven seven seven seven damage. Right. So as you. Thai? Ices bandanna over his face, like a good lizard, daddy. You turn around and here in feel this bacilus approaching, and as it rears, its hind, legs you pop off an Eldridge last right to its stomach growls in is that you and stomps down. Everyone rumbles for a second again. But you take you give them some damage. Oren. What are you gonna do shoot an arrow? Right. Is big howling mouth. Right in it's big Halloween mouth trying to have to roll for that with disadvantage. You did put on your mask grace. Okay, good. Everyone did. Good. All right. Lesser the two roles was fourteen get plus two for hits sixteen said, sixteen that also will head hopefully shed good. This is this is a pretty big big boy. Yeah. The big boy four see here. Yeah, he, he fills up a lot of the hallway so you should be it should be pretty easy to hit this. Okay. So you knock hero back. You are still using electric Google Ren. Actually naturally, naturally. So you knock this aero vac. And you can see bright, light from behind the, the van Danas and, and scarves. You're worried as your aero knocks full of electric energy, what is the damage? It's going to do as it. Flings. All right. First one is four plus one. So a five day. Eight. Piercing and the next one was three for the lightning damage. So we eight damage, total perfect, so you knock the Cerro back let it fling, and it hits it in one of its is. Sodas, partial partially blinded not enough for you to. So is I don't know how you hit it there, but lucky other fucker. So skill lucky. No. It's all it's all skill. Right. So. Did miss the mouth though. I don't know how you miss that. But so the bacilus raging at the fact they've just got an arrow in the eye. Rears back with its claw, and does a slash and will attack but car because you are the one taking up the rear weren't you. So you are probably closest. Oh, god. That is gonna miss. You. Holy shit. So swipes. The size of this, though. It does force. You back a little bit with the wind of it. So you get pushed back into Orrin and you, you, you can't see anything. So you're not sure what you hit wit as he swipes though he'd breaks one of the one of the stone statues, and it crumbles to the floor. I'm not that guy. Not that guy card is now your turn. What would you like to take a swipe at him? Did he swipe at us with his power was channel that was? It's, it's claw. Yeah. I'm gonna go after it. I don't think it can turn around all that. Well, no, the. Yeah. No, I'm saying. I don't think it can turn around all that welded you with a tale. Tale now too big. Yeah, it takes up the vast majority of the the area. I'm still going after. That's fine. Go ahead and roll disadvantage. How much is this? It is you role to twenty s and then you take the lower one. To my lowest fifty. He's christ. Yeah. Now you, you you hit. So go enroll for damage thirteen thirteen holy shit. I have ready damage right from the sword that I have are like, so, yeah, it, it doesn't do anything extra to the Vassilis that you do get radio damage. So thirteen. Wonderful. It is now sees turn. What would you like to do? Is is he close to us? I'm sorry. What was that? He's close to us. He is close to as a as a DM out of character. I would not. Recommend doing any area of attack things is you are very close proximity. Well. Is blind site within ten feet. So then we can see him normally you both can or just is I share his census. Oh, well, golly, that should help you a little bit like a little. Yeah. Conic. Daredevil. Exactly what it is. That's why we put on our blindfold a lot earlier. Gotcha. Gotcha. Gotcha. But. I'm cast a chill touch, which will put an acrostic hand on his shoulder. Okay. A range spell. Right. That's not one, you actually have to touch. It's nineteen that will hit him. It'll take seven chronic damage and that cannot heal till next turn. Okay. Cool. I don't know that it has any healing stuff. The trollers seventy cents. Yeah. All right. Perfect or what he wanted to see just take a shot at it. Can't really see any. I don't I haven't either sending move side from doing that. Yeah. You don't think you have what moves aside, from shooting, arrow at it? Not really not, not in do jump shot. Yeah. Just jump on it. Three sixty. Yeah. What do three sixty no scope? Okay. Yeah. I mean implied. Traded slide on it. With Ray sixty wis go time blind. It won't make a difference. Anyway. Oh, yeah. There we go. Shooting that now let's see. We got here. Okay. Looks like. AM fourteen with my worst one. So that's sorry, fifteen fifteen I got fifteen tie goes to the runner. So you knockback hero and it just. Misses him and hits the, the ceiling of the cavern and causes a bit of a rock tumble from the, the ceiling. But it's nothing. It's not used to so it doesn't take any damage from it. The bacilus then decides to come in and take a bite out of you know what? I mean car would be the closest still probably. But I think he's gonna go well, no, yeah. Car definitely Bacar cards, done the most damage. I think to it so and tease kind of hidden in the shade agro. So, yeah, that's what it takes. Does. That's what it takes. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Gonna take a bite out of crime. What he's gonna do. An eighteen will hit your arm class. Right. Mines is nineteen years. A nineteen our well shed, then he goes to bite you. But I think he's still kind of pain in the eye, and he, he just rips down and takes a shank out of the dirt. Right in front of you. So now you are in very close rock seventy two, what would you like to do? Seven the I you're gonna stab him in the other. I know the same Mary that aero deeper. I didn't go ahead. You're gonna have to you're gonna have to roll real fucking good for that one. You are disadvantaged as well. Might. Well shit. Get a one. Now I it was a five. It's just okay. Well. Twelve because of how many things I can't for my proficiency and stats strength. So, yep. No, you are the closest you've been to this this target and you, you go you lift up your sword just ready to right. Into its. I. Kind of kind of drags -i inside of the, the big weird mar- weird monster in the beginning of guardians to. Here's an you slammed down into the ground literally right next to it, and just missed completely meant to do that. Yeah. T-. What are you gonna do? Say it sounded like there are more here. So I don't wanna waste anything on just one. So I think I'm just gonna blast again with Eldridge blast, that's not good. It's a nine. I'm sorry. That's a nine hour. Nine yeah that's, that's not going to cut it. You, you go. You can see can't you, essentially. Even worse. So you've got an advantage in this fight, and you still still got fucked if I got whiffed it all. You shoot trunk into Eldredge blasts right into the side of the cavern and you start to hear a little more rumbling from deeper down the careful their way, the bacilus. Careful. They're dead shot. What do you want to do? Let's see how it fills up the whole cavern, right? Yeah. Is there any way past it? At this point, if it standing, no, you'd have to go underneath him. And I don't think you want to do that. I can share space with larger players shoot. All right. Just going to have to shoot Inara at it again. Okay. All right. Let's see here. All right. What did I get here? Oh, that was actually did pretty well there fourteen. And then I get some let's see. Plus two twos. It's eighteen that toll that will hit him. What are you damaging? Let's see eight is oh my gosh. Eight on my, let's ten for the first one and not as great only two for the second one so twelve twelve. All right. So as you hear the rumblings you reach out with your hand, and you feel that bacilus is right close to you. And so as you take your hand off it you aim. Right. Word the hand was and just fling a lightning ERO almost point blank, right into its face. Because it's still still down in the, the area where tried to bite by car and you just fling straight into its face. And it is pretty bloody at this point. Cheesed off. It is cheesed off. Yes. It is the. Bacilus stern. And the fact that you just did that he roars up and tries to take vita you for touching him. You dirty dirty elf. And takes a bite you. Oh, no should. For a twenty. Well for me. So thirteen you dirty dirty oh. So you take. Fourteen points of damage from that he rears up and just takes a bite out of your side out, just angry. Just how a little bit of at our stings a little bit Bacar. What are you gonna do? Distracted by the dirty dirty else. I'll just go slightly on am not going to be. You just get a he is, obviously, I'm blind. He is currently latched onto or until essentially, so. I can't lauch a little bit. Okay. Take its head. Seventeen seventeen that'll it them. All right. Eight. Eight damage. All right. So you know what for change? I'm going to ask you, how do you kill this thing. Oh, oh, fun. I know is that this situation bites for me, personally. I lodge my sword near its mouth and I kind of kill it joker style. Kill it. Joker style, rip it like put my sort into its mouth, just rip the muscles in its further down. Camping. Yeah. Right by or Anthony. All right. We'll give it to us. Yeah. Face. The left side. Exactly. All right. So you then take your take your sword. You plunge it into his mouth and just pull it off to the side Rippin. It's jock completely off with your sword. It's very much is dead. Now. King -gratulations guys you defeated the bass list. And no one got stoned. Well, champion little bittersweet ending. What are you going to? So you have the, the Vassilis. Did get a really. You're gonna have to get a band-aid maybe. You might wanna clean yourself up because you don't wanna. I'll get blood all clean it up. They'll pay. I'm gonna cut open a summit and drip, some can I try and heal myself. Louis wounds spill the statues. One at a time. Yes, you could do whatever it is. Okay. You go first. I, I'm gonna cut open its stomach. And drip, some acid on. Stones on the stones. Yeah. Okay. On the storm dwarves. Yeah. Yeah. Them to all all Ryan. So you do you have a. Do you have like a dispensary for this, this stuff? What are you gonna do with it is? I don't imagine you'd probably want to touch it. It's probably pretty. Pretty gross. Hey. Getting these guys have what a hat a hard hat. We put in that. The wizard head just any hat recall them. They might have like a nice hard hat on turn to stone within that we can pull it off their head or fill off. Maybe taking a Ford one. I mean, if you were to break, the wizards hat off, I suppose, maybe give you that has. T. Yeah, I guess why not? All right. You over and pop the, the, the stone wizard hat off the, the just destroyed. Wizard with the, the tiny hat, and fortunate that the basketball destroyed him dead. Yeah. It's very unfortunate to the past list. Okay. So, so you, you use this, this, this bacilus this. This wizard this tiny wizard hat, and you scoop. Some bacilus skies stomach acid out. And as you're walking over to the first stone dwarf to Deepak or fi you start to notice that the firmness of the Cup you the makeshift Cup. You currently have is. Softening very quick. Because it is turning back into a hat. Yeah. But a hat can hold. Yeah. Yeah. So so you know it works. And so you poor poor this, this Eker all over the the dwarf in it, it washes over him. And it's almost as if the grey stone is washing away. Left behind is just another door. Like the many you passed on the way down into the mine he falls to his knees in gasps. Run. Rudd. He looks around for a moment in pauses. Eddie looks chew. Where did that much? Oh, god. We were being chased down this passage and I looked back at it. Oh, I see you all. I'm confused. He holds his head. See, now you're doing it. Petrified, my friend. Petrified. Afraid. Yeah. Hi, five. I I, I was afraid, then I was petrified. Never thought I live without you, my side. Yep. Oh, I, I cannot begin to thank you all enough. The names rag near you. Save my life. I am in. I am in your debt. But what about my friends can can you do the same for them? Hopefully. So my hat cannot hold that anymore. So get a bucket. Rag near reaches around in his in his trousers. You just gotta bucket any pocket Senate. He he, he pulls out a. A flask area may aid dwarf in Maine flask and. Unscrews it and chugs the contents of it. That. Drink all of whose. Yeah. And then hands it to you and says here. Use this, this will help. Should okay. What helped? Anyway. Well, yeah. Yeah. No. That would have helped so you refill the flask and you go from one door to the next as you do rag. Nira accompanies. You he reassures the others that they've been saved any mentions teach them that they all their lives to you. Yeah. My all means do your do yourself a cure wounded. I got a six okay? So I get the thirty two. Curving till bit better. You feel a bit better. At least this stop bleeding bandage it up or something good. Good. I can peel, the rest later. That's, that's all that's all good. So you guys are going around. Deep petrifying these doors than. As I mentioned. Right. Near tells them each that they all. Oh, their lives to you. And when you've treated each of the door that's still intact mind, you, there are some that did not make it. It's a shame. There were like. There is a large gathering around you several dozen doors. Some still recovering from the effects of being a deep petrified. They all look to you rag near walks forward from the group and turns to face them and says we were sent into the minds risking our very lives to get trophy him for a company that has has given us almost nothing. Bacar Onen fill in t-. They saved us. I am tired, a following orders from Zavos, but I would follow these three all of us them. Our lives, who's with me the other dwarves one by one shot. I hey, and they take a knee toward you. So you guys have just freed a whole punch of elves, and now have elf buddies, torque buddies. Some dwarf buddies is what I meant. Yes. Yeah. So you have just freed a whole. A bunch of towards now. You have some Dorf buddy is the revolution has begun. I slam my staff and say sign your soul over to the one true God that saved, you know, for staffers. Nothing right now. I said it and I just don't pay attention to him. It's fine. He's skis. Got us where your solar or anything like that. Hey, everyone Taylor again sorry for the quality of my voice in these mid sections in end sections. I am I have a bit of a cold. But thank you for listening to episode Ted of Tantalus tales. We are in the double digits now and it feels fantastic. Thank you, all again. We could not have done this without you before I go, I want to remind you that if there are any of you listening that are going to be in the Minneapolis area over the fourth of July weekend for convergence. I will be up there and we would love to. Meet up with some of you just to talk, say, hi, we'll have some. Tantalus tales stuff while were there. I wanna give thanks to what's good for the their song intro. I don't think our show would be nearly as fun. Without that, cool, introduction music. And again, I'd like to thank our patriots supporters because they help us nominally. But yeah, because I have I'm gonna cut this short, thank you so much. Our next episode will be coming out on the third of July. So keep an eye out for that. Thanks guys. Bye.
Karima Moyer-Nocchi: Italian Foodways and the Myth of Authenticity
"Chewing the fat the yale sustainable food programs podcasts that looks at the big complicated world of food and agriculture on this week's episode we go across the world again and spotlight another country country. Italy sharing about italian culinary history with us is cream more gnocchi food historian and professor at the university of c._n._n. And the university of rome tour got two thousand fifteen book shares a title with our podcast. It's called chewing the fat an oral history of italian food ways from fascism dull jovita. Her news book book the eternal table. A cultural history of rome was published in march of this year. Take a listen as she chats with podcast manager. Josh kimmelman welcome corinna. Thank you very much after having the first off. Let's talk about this wonderful coincidence with the title of your most recent book and our podcast. Where does the phrase chewing the fat. Come in for you you. Why did you decide to use it in your book title well. It's an expression of british origin from the eighteen hundreds and i chose it because it reflects lex the informality of the interviews that i carried out and i wanted to emphasize that aspect of it because that was so much at the heart of the work that what i was doing as opposed to a traditional sort of history thome your most recent book that second part of the title is an oral history of italian in food ways from fascism too dull vita what our food ways. How would you define that for us well. It's interesting how food studies is so terribly terribly recent and as scholar andrew mcgowan who said in his writings so very succinctly history has been written through the ages as if no whenever eight and so food studies in particular culinary historians are trying to correct that aspect food ways. If you look at a spell spellcheck program it's still going to be underlined in red which i think. Emphasize is this lack of acceptance still a food studies food always takes its cues from the word folk ways and includes the anthropology sociology politics the history than and the practices all all surrounding what goes on in food so therefore you need to wear all sorts of different hats when you are food historian it's not about what people are making but y they're making it and how meaning gets carried on then through time and changes and evolves over time along with tastes and how how those things are culturally politically influenced as well as from conditions like immigration or the lack of it also the the geo morphology itself of what is available what can be grown what hardiness zones one is in those are all kinds of things that come together with food ways and food studies delving a little bit more specifically into the way that you let food ways interact with oral history in your work your book focuses on into things not taken seriously by traditional history oral history and food like you just said so in the book you say historians have typically labeled oral history very quaint and anecdotal and thus unreliable and frivolous because you're highlighting women's voices then comes into play even more. I'm actually writing my senior senior thesis right now on teddy bears which are also this seemingly frivolous thing. I'm especially interested in investigating things that seem quaint an anecdotal and frivolous. So how do you see those two things. Oral history and italian food ways both seemingly non serious things according to traditional history three. How do you see them providing windows into history well for small. Let me talk about my subjects who spanned all walks of life and it was important and then to get a sample from north to south and different socio political orientations but within that most of the people that that i interviewed which also reflects what most of the people are were represented are people who didn't necessarily have an education there was for for some reason a belief that four years of schooling was considered enough for girls so the voice of the less educated woman then then gets left by the wayside. They didn't leave literary records. They weren't politically active and involved and these were the people well who were living these food ways than that got swept under the table. After the war fascism became this terrible blot on history that everyone i want to go on and forget in this context oral. History is the way that this is going to be revealed at oral. History has has also suffered like food studies not having been taken seriously because these are not experts and how do they remember but the value of it is the way they remember and how that memory gets taken on and the fact that yes it is mixed with the benefit of hindsight with having heard from their own parents it's and in this case about fascism because the people that i was interviewing were mostly in their ninety s some of them in their late eighties but i couldn't go too far back in time because people were simply not alive but they had a memory of hearing from their parents as well so what you get here is an aspect of what his truthfulness and the truthfulness in the desire to bring out a story which is not a yarn. It's not anything that's made up as in story telling <music> but recounting a personal experience and how that was lived now if oral history is going to be considered something. That's not worth looking at because because it's biased. I believe that you could say the exact same thing. Though about the way many standard or traditional histories are written. They're written by certain scholars who already have a certain belief in an approach that they believe in written in a certain political time if for example a person from i'm the extreme left is writing standard history of fascism and their italian. They're going to have a certain approach to that so certainly certainly when you're talking about truthfulness than and the value of oral history the continuum of truthfulness is bookended by fallacies and in truth and as interdependent beings we require truthfulness but are skeptical of the existence of truth given the fallibility of the human mind aimed projections of cultural perspective and the inevitability of experiential filters but they offer a window onto truthfulness regardless guardless of their grounding in indisputable fact and unfortunately right now in italy. They're still not willing or ready to look at fascism and talk to people who are this age. They are slipping away very quickly just from my own book from the <hes> the brief amount of time since it's been published five of the women have died so this is the time to get that record right yet that makes a lot of sense <hes> you know my my grandfather was a holocaust survivor and part of the generation that that's constantly discussed right in a in a certain community as well that that that record needs to get obtained so that right that makes a lot of sense to me and that's also the differences well of what's going on in germany that <hes> which is the opposite that they want to look at it and pick it apart <hes> write about it and that same thing is not going on <hes> so much in italy half. That's not something i realized before you know i'm finishing my senior thesis in history as well and it's so intriguing to me this idea that url histories consider this unreliable source because the most primary documents most sources for history are similarly unreliable even just like a lot of my sources are newspaper newspaper articles and most of them present wildly nassar very skewed opinions or ridiculous things and that's part of why they're interesting just goes to show how how ridiculous some of these these norms can be yeah and and eliminating the voice of people who actually lived through an experience as unreliable <music> also needs to be reexamined at. Let's particularly because not everybody's writing down things and just because it's not written down doesn't mean it's any l._s. Legitimate reason and in this case we're talking about people who sometimes can't when i went and did these interviews sometimes the son or daughter of whoever i was interviewing head to sign the release form for them rahm i remember <hes> luigina who's from the north and she asked me i gave her the form and i explained what it was and she paused for a moment and said i can't remember how to make the l. l. so that that is a funny little detail of specified. Wow so thinking about that actually that that educational aspect you know one thing that struck me when i read your your work. Was you say that italian cookery is now considered to be one of the few classless cuisines and two days ago at the first of your three talks here this week at yale. You said that now only the rich rich can afford to eat like peasants and i noticed this phenomenon to in other contexts. It was really apparent to me. In peru's sacred valley where i worked the this summer and i'd love to get your take on this especially given the diverse set of subjects you have with very diverse class backgrounds the educational backgrounds. It's particularly interesting to me this idea of a classless cuisine so why are the rich eating like peasants and why is italian cuisine zine classless. How'd you complicate those ideas. Well part of this is a passage of time that the fatigue get of what it was like to live in rural areas <hes> enough time has passed that we're now able to romanticize that passed i in an urban context and applied to the rural context <hes> so not necessarily people who lived that but who are looking back at added and remembering it sifting out what they want to remember about her what they want to think about it and applying it to now and often with this belief that now is somehow unwholesome <hes> and that then was wholesome while you can you can select a few beans that people were eating and put them in a package and charge a lot of money for them. That's one aspect that it is part of the nostalgia industry and there's a lot of money to be made for made on that and the talking about about the cuisine and italy italy being classless though now is because people can afford to eat so what was going on before if you'd consider the nineteenth century it was a time when you have people moving into the middle classes with italy also becoming a country three the cuisine that people are looking at in cookbooks so that they can learn how to eat like their betters as it were <hes> the cookbooks were very much still looking towards france and then what happens in fascist italy is that sort of isolationist sionist except for them in one thousand nine thirty eight when italy allied with <hes> with hitler's germany what you have is an exaltation of the previously i want to call them not poor foods but low status foods which were the foods that were not found in french cookbooks pasta polenta and rice ice in particular and women came out and were embracing this privation for the betterment of the pasta and so that kind of it was a movement into italian food and exalting italian food <hes> and at the same time after world war two then there was a the great great exodus from the rural south to the industrial north <hes> which moved people as well into eating in a different way so you you have a blending in a moving together of this now classless means that some of those class distinctions in that middle classes were eating like like the french french were trying to eat in a in a french international style that changed but the quantity and quality necessarily of the of the food that people are eating. That's not classless of core so <hes> when you've got truffles that cost seventy euros rose an ounce or or so <hes> not everyone's eating those unless they're going out and digging them up themselves <hes> so it's it's a it's a very relatives saying that it's that it's a classless cuisine though yeah no. I noticed the same thing in peru this summer it was it was weird. It was the first time i had really encountered it to that degree agree on because there's a similar romanticize ation going on there where especially in the sacred valley. There's kind of this heritage. People are very excited about you. Know the the kind of like indigenous folks there the like ancient inca heritage there so it's very these restaurants popping up that are trying to kind of serve peasant food dude exactly by serving at prices inaccessible to peruvians. It's only for tourists and that's really bizarre <hes> but i'm sure it's also happening all over the world. It's just like not something i had thought about in quite that way but it was shoved in my face and i this is the problem that that i have with the term kuching oppo vera which literally translated would be poor cuisine <hes> first of all equating poverty not with a cuisine because poverty is not cuisine and i can see talking about the christina popularity which is about popular cuisine people who are actually actually eating but then when you go to a so-called rustic restaurant <hes> that are serving up mounds of you know in pasta julia's people like to call it pasta <hes> which is the term from from the south <hes> another another aspect of being romantic but you can go into a restaurant and pick and choose your rustic poor foods that you want and then the next day eat something else. It wasn't a choice. You're eating the same thing basically every day. I have interviews with women from the north who had polenta every meal every single day hey and sure not saying don't eat polenta but the romanticizing it as if people lived better her in a different time and the the myth of simple abundance so that one really gets me yeah. You're reminded me of something that you you said in your your talk two days ago which is to paraphrase what you said. Tradition without awareness history and openness to change is stereotype type right right and i can understand the importance of choosing what's going to be traditional and and <hes> selecting the objects of pride how that creates community <hes> but in in this particular case of eliminating and an entire generations wins memories their memories of food and how that did contribute to what came later italian cuisine as a lot of italian culinary inari scholars will say italian cuisine doesn't exist and it was created basically after world war two italian cuisine as we know <hes> and and very much coming out of that mussolini's trying to recreate a a sense of nation <hes> and how women pick that up and brought that <hes> because it was that sort of food that was being cooked at home that became sort of exalted and removing that particular piece of twenty year history from the picture is deleterious to understanding than <hes> <hes> italian food today the idea of italian cuisine cuisine that people like to say it doesn't exist <hes> there is something that does exist and it moves through time and i think with authenticity what we're not allowing knowing is for there to be an evolution but evolution doesn't mean that you can just pick and choose which time periods existed in which didn't <hes> yeah so so actually thinking about this idea of italian cuisine existing not existing moment that really intrigued me in your book you know as an american jew. It was very interesting to see one of your interview. Subjects renata who's not jewish talking about italian jewish cooking and specifically saying roman food doesn't exist without roman jewish cooking traditions. I was surprised to see that i knew about italian jews a rich heritage there but i hadn't thought of it as something integral to italian or roman cooking or even culture for that matter. It's it's not something that i had thought about and i'm curious about how people not traditionally considered italian or roman fit into italy's culinary history and its food so how is foreign food scene or approached in italy today or historically making a distinction between <hes> roman jews news which are an indigenous considered an indigenous group and then the incoming jews with the iberian expulsion and and because in that period of time the ghetto wasn't set up in rome but she in particular rinat in particular was exalting assaulting roman food. I think also because of a bad memory that she had of going to school and that from one day to the next is a jewish was children were suddenly just not there and she has a very stark <hes> had because she also just died less here. <hes> had a very very stark memory of that happening which i think made her want to exalt the importance of <hes> roman jewish food because she does give examples examples that are not within the dietary laws right his well <hes> which which has pork in it but i think because she wants to feel that sharing so much non but the but anyway nineteen in nineteen thirty eight mussalini as part of his pact with hitler was forced to adapt the racial laws and so those went into effect and jewish children had to be taken out of school so but roman jewish food is part of what i call the triple matrix of <hes> the coutihno romanesque which it would be <hes> nineteenth century what came out in the nineteenth century in in rome so you have the food of the country the quinta quad wachtel which is the influence of the setup in the nineteenth century a very large meat processing plant in the center of rome a lot of people working there and they were given they were paid also in kind with the what was called the fifth quarter her of the animal which were of course the awful or or the the organ meats. Let's say yeah okay so that was another part of it and then <hes> the food from from the countryside of which the carbonaro was part of that tradition but in italy today unless you go to a very large city milan. I wouldn't even say rome. Necessarily there is foreign food <hes>. There's ethiopian restaurant certainly a lot of cobb but that's <hes> that's a different kind. That's a different social phenomenon but it's a mono culinary culture in italy. That's very suspicious of foreign food. When i moved to italy i was very shocked by this and i became very interested in involved in the aspect of the myth busting costing after having been there for so long and watching the day of vacation of italian food at the same time watching the decline of the quality of it and the the cultural tourism that was going on around food the different efforts to maintain these traditions which is all well well in good but in the end what you have is that you're creating these food theaters food museums in i mean that in the sense of what's going on in restaurants and in tourism of maintaining some idea about these foods and food service let's call it because it does those include going to agree to ease me where you go and you stay on someone's farm <hes> which is rife throughout italy but these these food services services very much catering to the foreign people coming in who are not looking for foreign food who are skeptical of foreign foods and who have may been abroad or seen it on television and are willing to buy it in that extremely tiny foreign foods section of the supermarket in packages that they're not frightening kinds of packages but packaging that will appeal to someone who doesn't want something that's too ethnic looking right and it's the same time i have to applaud these he's small efforts because they are an attempt to allow for the existence of that and break down cultural barriers through food food but it's these foods that often we we love. I mean there are some serious political. Oh problems going on with so many countries yeah. Let's talk about or mexico and india and in italy just the same in an extreme extreme right <hes> government coming in yeah the mafia of moving into food right now because it's it's rendering better than then there mainstays of drugs and prostitution falsifying food <hes> most typically the the olive oil which is vegetable oil died green whoa making on a lot of money on that <hes> so but while eating and enjoying these foods the concomitant maybe turning a blind eye or just putting blinders on to what's actually going on in the country yeah and leaving that <hes> reminds me a little bit also that i was intrigued between you mentioned ethiopian food in italy given their history of trying to colonize ethiopia exactly yeah so shifting gears a little bit as we move move towards the close. I am interested to hear about the book you have coming out next year. What can you tell us about it. My my book coming out in march is called the <hes> the eternal table a cultural history of food in rome and looking in particular. I have some through lines. One of which i feel is is very important to talk about now. How rome and roman food was was created by immigration from their inception with aeneas and the latins coming down through the valley settling into the area there was latin venues and what they were going to find in that area and how those materials were going to create rome so immigration also the the extremely important and befuddling bedeviling topic of <hes> authenticity from because we like to we like to feel a certain continuity that things haven't changed at there are things that are stable. There are clear answers on but looking at the entire history of food in rome. It's in constant flux and things are constantly changing to the point where <hes> how many of us are going to look at a pickiest mckee ass- which is the recipe compilation that came out of ancient rome the only one and recreate these dishes that are made with things like fig pecker door mice and cow udders well. They're simply not appealing to us and so sure you're also going to find beans in there but then where's the pasta and whereas all of the things that we think about italian food <hes> well karima we liked to conclude chewing the fat by asking asking our guests to dispel myths about food that maybe erc or frustrate them were interest them so keeping in mind that much of your work already does this in this myth busting work. Are there any other ideas out there that you'd like to challenge one in particular is <hes> the mediterranean diet the development of the mediterranean diet whether we're talking about it with a small or capital d. If if the mediterranean diet were considered a diet with a capital d just like the south beach diet is i would have less problems with it but it's the i need to attach to a place in attached to a time and say that it's always been the same or even that it is a thing eh it's a creation that happened and sure we should all stop eating processed food and eat more vegetables and fruits but the amount of power that is behind that and i'm talking about personal ambition <hes> brought out of first and foremost in the in the case of the mediterranean union diet through ansel keys how it was then picked up by the italians and just the myths that that circulate around the basic message of eat your vegetables and how many tour packages and products that sells us menu items and then in particular olive oil because when you look at the history of italian food and what the people were eating these the people whose longevity is being looked at most people were eating lard and pork fat as their mainstay fat the the on the wealthier table you have butter olive oil was in very few areas <hes> for a very long time extremely expensive suv much more difficult to cultivate or to <hes> to process and not identity marker until after <hes> world war two when ideas about cholesterol and having your lipid profile checked came to the fore again through professors at harvard the university and ansel keys who made that focus because cracking that nut of what was causing this perceived idea <hes> of cardiovascular disease which also was coming to the fore for another two reasons because people were not dying of infectious diseases so much anymore and so we were moving into a time where degenerative diseases seemed to spike then in the nineteen forties the development of the e._k._g. The ability to to test for serum cholesterol <hes> yeah so that is one of the things that i- dispel as well as ideas. He is about coffee and pastas well. I'm my pasta lecture today. Talking about how long it took for pasta to become an identity identity marker for italians pizza is well. You're always considered a dirty food or poor food associated with <hes> with naples which was then in turn earn associated with cholera yeah book about that. That was not a pleasant city great.

RWT13 Reminiscing with Tom - The facts of life
"I still have sin with my grandfather telling me stories of old the older in better as used to say. Well he's no longer here to share those stories and I wish I'd catalog. That's why I felt such an affinity to thome listener from. Alabama. Now, living in Berlin who started sending US recordings of memories of growing up. Enjoyed this shirt true story read by Tom Himself in this special edition of the show way calling reminiscent with Tom. Now about the facts of life. In the south. No I don't mean the birds and the bees. No in the south the facts of life included other things other than man and woman. It also meant how to survive on a daily basis. And for those of you modern folk, the Fowleri may be a little disturbing. So it may be who you to turn a deaf ear for a few minutes. There were times when an animal had to be actually killed for the food. For the growing up was learn how this was to be done. Humanely. Of course. My term came one Sunday at my grandmother's house. My teacher. Well, it was my father as usual. My grandmother needed to chickens to. FRY. For. The family gathering meal. Dad decided that it was my time to be initiated into this task. Chicken, and pen was out back of the house where I'd often collected fresh eggs for grandmothers fantastic meals. So Dad and I stepped down off the back porch and headed out to the chicken pan. Where there were several. Hinz. Dad sent me chasing the chicken style until I got one colored and brought it back where my impatient instructor was waiting. For. Sunday will be over she don't catch the next hand faster. As, he shifted its remaining bit of Cigar to the other side of his mouth in order to laugh. Let me show you how it's done and the next one Jewish. Taking the hand from a grabbed the animal by the neck and with one snap. Future. Content for the Sunday frying Pan was put out of his misery. Okay. I. Thought this would be a snap. Oh nope. Unintended. took. A little longer for me to catch the next one because I believe the other hand you something was amiss in the old chicken, Yar? Yes the flock had witnessed one of their relatives fate and didn't want to be the next victim. Especially, by a novice, I could almost hear what those hints were thinking. Sky Doesn't know what he's doing and I'm not going to be the next one. Point finally cornering one I brought it back to dead. To be witness to the execution and. Close enough to him for the PAT on the back for a job. Well done. Grant the hand by the neck firmly and imitating a South American Gaucho. I had seen in the movies before I begin to flail the animal about my head as if it were Alaso feathers flying everywhere. And getting chicken droppings all over my face I'd freckles. thinking. I. Had completed the job satisfactorily dropped the bird to the ground and waited for my compliment. At that moment, the burden stood up in staggered about like a drunk on all night bench and. Coming to his senses, it retreated to the flock. Needless to say it was hard to catch another one after that incident. My Dad was shaking his head and wondering what in the world for son he had reared took over. The job. And finished it neatly. Before the sun went down. What was intended for dinnertime turned out to be for. Supper. How Embarrassing Sounds horrible. But That was real life for US growing up. Sincerely Tune in again, next time for more reminiscing Tom.
