A highlight from 123: Part 2: Rikk Rambo Survives Two Shootings, An Assassination Attempt, and an 800-Pound Grizzly
"Yeah, we did not because, you know, since they were part of, they were in probation and all that with the juveniles, and we didn't really have anything to do with them unless we were investigating them. And I was out of there pretty, you know, pretty shortly after that but never, you know, not able to track, you know, whether that was effective or not. Just don't know. But I do notice watching them. Let me ask you, after going through that, did you think about breaking the law after that? Nope. Nope. Nope. I'm good. Nope. You know, I thought back to all the things I did as a juvie, you know, that might have been, you know, and I'm like, yeah, I think I went the right, I think I went the right direction. Yeah. Well, so you said you did that, you hurried because you had to, you know, you had paperwork to do at Pittsburgh. So how long did it take you from the time you applied to the time you got on Pittsburgh PD? I would say it probably took probably close to about a year, almost like with DEA. DEA was very methodical, very slow and very good with the way that they hired you. But Pittsburgh Police, yeah, but when it happened, it happened in a whirlwind. I waited about a year. When I went to take the test at Pittsburgh, I drove all the way from over in western Ohio, so about a five hour drive, showed up at the convention center, you know, going back to when we're talking about how popular policing was, how difficult it was to break in. Went to go take the test. It was at the convention center, like a Van Halen concert in 1984. There must have been probably close to, I think they said 18 ,000 people for 200 jobs. So I mean, I took the test and didn't think anything was ever going to happen with that many. And being an out -of -towner, because, you know, there's a little bit of nepotism in some of those back east towns, but yeah, about a year. But boy, I'll tell you, you could tell they had a protocol in place to keep the out -of -towners out and to keep the, you know, the people who knew people inside or whatever, to keep Pittsburghers, Pittsburghers. The gal calls me from Pittsburgh out of the clear blue and she goes, you're considered for the job. You have two and a half days to move here. And I'm all the way over by the Michigan border, working over there. And I found out later on this gal had some issues with people like, anyway, yeah, so she had an issue with out -of -towners and some other things. She's been on the racist side. Let's go ahead and say it. This gal was very racist. But yeah, she said, you have two and a half days to get here and she says, this is what you have to have. Now I'm in Ohio. You have to have a driver's license, proof of residency, like a lease or whatever. You have to have a telephone, subscribe to your name and power. And you have two and a half days to do it. It's, I mean, but luckily for me, my secret weapon was my mom and dad lived within an hour of Pittsburgh. So I'm back that night. The next day we head up there and luckily mom and dad were Uber before Uber was cool. They drove me all around Pittsburgh. Thank God I passed the test on the first try and didn't screw up any of the questions and what have you. But I passed the driver's license test. So I got my PA driver's license, ended up finding an apartment, did everything in one day. Ended up having everything I needed in one day. And I totally baffled her. I could tell when I showed up at the public safety building with all my stuff, all my gear, you could tell she's very disappointed. Her name was Cookie. Anyway, yeah, I showed up and had it all. And so that's how it all went. And it kind of bolstered what I thought too when I went to the academy, because when you walk through the door of the Pittsburgh Police Academy, it's also very old. I mean, it smells like history when you walk in there. Old, old building. Walked in and there's this old disgruntled, this is my indoctrination into Pittsburgh Police. I walk into the building and you smell that history. I walk in and there's this old pissed off cop sitting there. And he's like one of those big city, old pissed off stereotype cops. He's got an unlit cigar chomped in his mouth and whatever. And I remember he was very voluminous, big guy, sitting there just angry looking. And he had the tea sitting at a table. There was a container over here with nightsticks and a smaller container on the table with blackjacks. And if you're not familiar with blackjacks for people out there, they were an impact weapon that was your backup if you couldn't use your full size nightstick or once they went to Asps, the expandable batons. But a blackjack was basically a leather wrapped, about a foot long. It had a steel spring in the middle wrapped in leather. It had a handle. It had a lead ball also wrapped in leather on the end. It's kind of sproingy. You could kind of give it some spring. It was meant for close quarters stuff. But yeah, it was like a 1900 Keystone cops blackjack nightstick and this pissed off old cop sitting there. And he says, name, sign here, get downstairs and get your uniform. And like I said, there was no friendliness. So I go down, I get into the locker room and the first thing somebody said, and this is the first thing in Pittsburgh that anybody said to me from the PD, I get down there and one of the other new recruits looks over at me and he goes, so who do you know? And I'm like, I don't know. I'm just that token out of town kid and whatever. But I mean, that was really not a big deal. The rest of it wasn't nepotism or anything. That was the first thing it said. But you could see a degree of people that were there that had been, you know, that were like legacies or they had known somebody. But for the most part, it was a bunch of good guys and gals. And that carried on all through Pittsburgh. You know, I think a lot of the times for us, you know, we're our own best critics when it comes to not wanting a dirty cop, not wanting a bad cop. Not even somebody that, you know, is even halfway, like doesn't treat people the right way and whatever. I mean, so I mean, most of us are our own best critics. And I can honestly say, like with Pittsburgh Police, I work the second worst part of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh's north side. It's called Zone 1. But all through my career in Pittsburgh, I met like maybe, maybe two or three guys that I'm like, oh, boy, I wouldn't want to work with that fellow. But that's out of hundreds of people. And we'd jump zones and go over to their zones and help them out. It would work special details like events and work with detectives. But yeah, my experience for the rest of the time with Pittsburgh was very, very good. It was truly a family. One of the biggest problems we had when you'd have a serious call where you had to call back up, like you had a gunfight going on or you had like a really serious foot chase. One of the biggest problems was trying to sort out who all had showed up at your scene when you write your report. Because, you know, Pittsburgh had a whole bunch of agencies going on that were kind of like on top of each other. And even though Pittsburgh police was the clearinghouse for like a robbery or a shooting or what have you, you know, we had Allegheny County police, Port Authority police, sheriff, school, and they could come back you up if necessary. And so it just looked like a carnival if you had like a really serious call. And so my experience was, though, that the people we worked with were unbelievable. Never, never had a bad experience in the field. Very lucky. Well, yeah, you had a bad experience in the field, weren't you? Didn't you tell us something about two weeks after you got released? You're out on your own. Didn't something happen? So I guess we'll tell a couple of these. For the first two weeks in Pittsburgh when you get out, they didn't have a field training officer program. What I tell people that even 15 years ago, 20 years ago, I tell people, yeah, Pittsburgh didn't have a field training officer program. You'd graduate after your six -month academy and they're like, here's your badge, kid, go out and be good. And that was the way they did it. Wow. So you had no FTO. You got a badge and a gun, go get them, Tiger. But what they did do for your first two weeks is, for familiarization, they would put you in all the different, they don't call them precincts in Pittsburgh, they're called zones, but they would put you in a different zone in Pittsburgh for like a three -day period. And that way, during the two weeks, you could experience every one of those zones, know where their stations are, if there's a court, whatever you need to know about. And you'd also do patrol work with another officer. Yeah, so my first week on the job, so many things happened in one and a half weeks that kind of like shows you the quantity over quality when it comes to, you know, street law enforcement in a big city. But I remember my very first call for service, I was in Zone 2, which is our downtown area. That's the big sprawling downtown and then the Hill District. And my first partner, he was an older guy, a little bit gruff and what have you. You could tell he's kind of like, he's not real happy being saddled up, you know, with the rookie, but that's what he had to do. And it was nine o 'clock in the morning and they get a call of an unknown disturbance from Point State Park. Point State Park is where, if you look at Pittsburgh proper, you have two rivers called Monongahela and the Allegheny River. They flow together and form the Ohio River. Well, right there where that point is, they have a really, really nice park right there. It's huge, absolutely huge. But nothing ever happens there usually because you can't escape. It'd be like Snake Pliskin trying to get out of New York or whatever, you can't get out of there. So it's unusual to have that call. So we get down there, we just drive right through the park in the patrol car, right down through the green lines, we get down to where the problem was, was a park bench. And there were several business people, a couple ladies, a couple guys, dressed very nice, and they're kind of standing back just like watching this poor thing unfold. It looked like it was a homeless guy. He had that Obi -Wan Kenobi homeless look to him with all the multiple layers of clothes where you can't really tell what's going on. And so he's laying on the, I don't know if it was a he, but we found out later on, the hard way. We found out the hard way. Yeah. So he's laying on the park bench and he's kind of like in the fetal position, but you can't see anything but like that Obi -Wan Kenobi rap going on. Nothing. Can't see hands, but he's in, it looks like to me as a young, brand new, fresh out of the box, fresh -faced kid, I'm thinking this guy is going into convulsions. And he's making the sound that's like, grrr, grrr, grrr, grrr. I mean, he's making these like animalistic sounds. He's in convulsions. And so I'm just kind of like, huh. And this cop, without skipping a beat that I'm with, old timer guy, he gets out his big old Micarta nightstick. He goes over in front of all these business people, takes it and just jams it right into the area that's probably going to be this guy's sternum or ribs or stomach or whatever. And just, he doesn't hit him with it. He just sticks it in there to give him a little, you know, hey, pride. He sticks it. Well, the guy never misses a beat. He stops. Well, he does. He stops for like maybe a second. Like he stops the convulsing and the gurgling sounds. And then he goes right back at it again into the convulsions. And I'm like, oh man, it's like our first day and this is going on. And these business people are like all shocked. They're like, oh my God, because of the nightstick. And the cop, my cop, he goes dirt and jams the guy again. He goes, hey, I said, get the F out of here right now. And the guy stops making the gurgling sounds and then sits up. And now you can see it's a dude. He's dirty. His face is really, really dirty. And robes his and whatever he had going on comes open. And there's no easy way to put this. I'm going to make the sound effect. If you heard that sound effect, that's what fell out of his robes. He had this thing that looked, it didn't look right. You know, when you see something that doesn't make sense to you, and just for like maybe a two second period, your head is trying to figure this, like, what am I looking at? I don't even know what I'm looking at, but you know what you're looking at. This guy had a monstrous monster dog. Yeah, he had a monstrous dog. And he had been performing fellatio on himself. And I'll be honest with you guys. I'll be honest with you guys. You know, I've told this story ever since from Pittsburgh on, like when you're sitting in a surveillance van, you're like, what's the weirdest thing you ever saw? Or like, what's the most thing that ever made you the most jealous? Anything like that. But yeah, so we're, I saw, but before we did our podcast today, yesterday, I just wanted to see, I want to make sure that I haven't misremembered this story. So I went online and I typed in, I typed it in. I hope my, yeah, don't look at my browser for this one. I typed in, can a man perform fellatio on himself? And you know what? I was totally justified in whatever, in telling the story the way it is, because according to Men's Health, and hey, you know, Men's Health says that it can't be wrong, 0 .2 % of the male population in America can actually do that to themselves. So you don't have to break a rib, I guess. You don't have to do anything weird. You're like a fetishist type thing. But anyway, so that guy sits up. I know it makes a lot of mental, you can't help, but just get the mental images. I'm sorry, but if you do that, are you automatically gay then? I mean, how does that work? I don't, you know what? I'm not here to judge. I'm not here to judge. All I can tell you is, I guess I, you know, if I had to, I'd have to say, I would probably be homeless too. You know, if I had that going on, I might be homeless, or at least never leaving my house. I don't know. But yeah, so that comes out and flops down and what have you. And the business people, and not just the men, I mean, not just the women, the men too, it was like, you know those 1950s movie screams? Yeah. Like the over -the -top, like from all the old horror movies, like, ah! That's what universally happened to that small little crowd of business people. They were nowhere to be seen in about 25 seconds. They were gone and whatever. And you know, the guy, the park bench guy, he reels it in, or I'm not sure how that spools it up. I'm not sure what he did. If he had a holster, I'm not sure what he did. But anyway, yeah, so he gets it back in there somehow and gets himself bundled back up, and he just goes trudging off. And he never did say one word that you could understand. It was all just like, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I mean, just total nonsensical gibberish. And he just kind of wandered off into the sunset. I guess that's what heroes do. Ah, jeez. Yeah, he wandered off into the sunset. And I'm thinking to myself, huh, I went through five years of college and 70 years of military, and here we are. It's great. It was absolutely great. I would not trade my time with the things we saw in this world.
Fresh "Tigers" from News, Traffic and Weather
"FM 1000 9077. Stay connected, stay informed. Good morning and thanks for joining us. It is Wednesday, December 6th and right now in downtown Seattle we have mostly cloudy skies, some light showers and 49 degrees. Good morning, it's 504. News Radio is your home for breaking news and for traffic and weather every 10 minutes on the floor. Let's get you right over to the High Performance Homes Traffic Center where we say good morning to our buddy Kiara Jordan. And good morning Brian and Amanda. So you're going to be finding multiple road closures this morning due to flooding. Some of the areas where these exist, Woodinville, Carnation, Arlington, Redmond, Snohomish, Nokwami, Kent. So basically just please keep in mind that if you come to a it's road and got a barrier there, do not go around it and try and tackle that water. It only takes a couple of inches and really you'll find yourself in trouble. And unfortunately that did happen to people yesterday. So as long as we need to be smart and follow those barriers and those precautions, we should be okay. Now we don't have any big blocking crashes or walls right now, but eastbound 512, that's already building between the mall and 167. I do see some crowding and slowing on westbound 18 as you're working your way along Tiger Mountain and also on westbound right as you're approaching state route 18. We're seeing a little bit of hesitation there and westbound us to off ramp to southbound I -5. We had an earlier blocking problem. I've been told it's been clear, but I do see a little bit of a backup in the area. Our next northwest traffic at 514. Will the rain ever stop? Our forecast now sponsored is by Northwest Crawl Space Services. Yes, eventually the rain should taper off showers by this afternoon,

A highlight from Reeling in Records: Patricks Wyoming World Record Catch
"Fish on! Hey, Radcast is on. And welcome to the show Mr. Jim Zumbo. Gentlemen, I am pleased to be here and I use that term loosely when I say gentlemen. Al Winder. Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. I am looking forward to it. Nothing makes me happier than a coke in Minnesota. If I can't be out fishing, I should be talking about fishing. Hailing from Wisconsin, Janna Waller. Thanks so much for having me. It's Radcast. Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. Powered by Bow Spider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrill. Well welcome to another episode of Radcast Outdoors everybody. I'm Patrick Edwards. And I'm David Merrill. We had a cool thing that happened over the last couple weeks we want to tell you about. We are now on Carbon TV, right David? Yes, this will be one of the episodes you'll be able to listen to on Carbon TV. We're super excited to be on that platform. I've been poking around and checking out all the other content on there and there's a lot of it Patrick. Yeah, it's pretty extensive. I was surprised at all the different shows that they had available and it was an inspiration to us to get on there after having Christy Titus on who's Pete Rogers as well. So maybe we should be on here since this is where a lot of our audience would be, right? Correct. It's exciting to be on there. It's exciting to see the growth. This is, we're starting November. We'll be starting year five, Patrick. We're climbing episodes for sure. Getting up there. Still getting out and about. It's not hard water season yet. I wanted to let everybody know we have one more exciting piece of news talking about fishing and out and about. I did see a post in a picture that it's official. We do have a world record holder on the podcast. Thank you. Yeah, it's pretty crazy. I got notification after six months of waiting in agony about my world, pending world record. It happened. Have a, have an old time. The old record, it wasn't an ounce, right? It was almost a pound. The state record I smashed, the world record, I actually tied the guy. We co -hold the record, but I also had 0 .4 ounces on there and they round down. So I'm about half an ounce. I want horseshoes out of moms and hanged in raids. That's where it counts in close. Yeah, no, it's pretty cool for the state of Wyoming too, because we only have one other all tackle world record and the only other one is the golden trout, which I would much rather have that one, but I don't. So I'll take what I can get and having the white sucker all tackle world record is pretty cool. That means it's the biggest of mine, rod, reel, any of that. So it's pretty cool. Oh, you were talking about all tackled world record is held in here in Wyoming. So we need to get a few more of those shovel meadows needs to come here. So you got work to do. That's what I would say. Yeah. I was doing some research on that just the other day, just for fun. And so I had the world record or the world fishing hall of fame, freshwater fishing hall of fame. I had their book out and I had the IGFA book out. I'll tell you what, man, there's some really tough ones. It's going to be really hard to break some of those. I was, although for the IGFA, there there is some hope for some of the younger folks. So like our kids, they have a juniors division and then they also have a small fry division for kids. And there's several species in there that are vacant. Like no one has a record of any kinds and their species have to catch a fish. Yup. And their species that we have here in Wyoming. So it's potentially one of our kids could be an IGFA world record holder. They, it wouldn't be an all tackle, but it'd be for their age group and their division. That's definitely a doable thing if they wanted to do it. That'd be really exciting. If one of the kids was a world record IGFA holder, that's, that's actually, there's a potential. So everybody else, your books and you might not be able to get in the adult division, but to take a kid, put the rod and wheel in their hands and see if you can get them a record. Yeah. And it's funny, you can see which species are super popular because the walleye has a whole bunch of different records. Walleye being one of the most popular game fish in North America, largemouth bass. There's a bunch of them that have records, but then you start getting into the more obscure things like tiger muskies and tiger trout and stuff like that. And there's a lot less of them. If you're going to go break a world record, maybe that's something you look for. Some species only have the all tackle division open. So if you look at IGFA, the white sucker, that's all they do is the all tackle. But if you go to the freshwater fishing hall of fame, you can do the all tackle and all the line class records too. And so it's based on the type of line you're using and you have to send all that in and get it tested for break strength and a number of other things, but you can get a world record that way. So there's, and Danny, his name is in that line class world record book a lot. He's in there a whole bunch, which was cool to see that he still has a whole bunch of golden trout records and mountain white fish and other cool things that we have here in Wyoming. That's pretty neat. When we were elk hunting, we took the kids to elk camp for about three days. I would say elk hunting was on pause, but we were at elk camp and certainly it was a, it was a good time. Took the kids fly fishing in the stream and caught a lot of trout. That's awesome. What was the, was it all like brook trout or what? We can at least get over some of the particulars about how to do a world record and all that. Basically the idea of how to go about finding a world record that you can break and then going after it. How's that sound? Yup. I can even lead when you hit the flag button and tell me when you're ready. Go for it. Patrick, for everybody out there, how do you go about, you've identified that there's a flawed or a species that you like to fish for. We've talked about getting it weighed and certified, but how would you go about identifying a potential species to go after and what would you do if you were going to truly do that? Yeah, so I'd say it's going to vary by individual, but like for most people, you just have to get an awareness of what the records are. There's a lot of records out there and you also have to look at who the, you know, issuing agency or organization is. So there's the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame. They have their own record book. It's totally independent of the IGFA. And so what I would recommend is you can go online and you can go to their websites and you can scour and look and see what some of those records are or you can do like I did and pay a membership and get the books so that you can see what they are and just easily flip through them, highlight and just see who's got what record. Then the other thing is you got to look and see what are the species in my area that I could potentially break a record, right? Golden trout in Wyoming, you could potentially break that record because we have golden trout here. If you're living in a state that doesn't have golden trout, it's going to be a lot harder, right? So that's just common sense. But you want to look for the species that actually grow big and you're part of the United States or abroad and start working on that, especially if you have a body of water that's close by. But it's important for a lot of reasons. I think it brings excitement to fishing, right? It gives you something fun and exciting to chase after. And I also think that it shows that conservation efforts are working because people keep saying, oh, there's not going to be any more records for this kind of fish or that kind of fish. And yet every year you have different records being broken. Like I was talking to the guy from the Game and Fish that was interviewing me about my two state records and he said, I'm just so surprised at how many state records there have been lately. And it's surprising, but not like I feel like conservation efforts and fish biology has come a long ways and we're growing bigger and better fish. And so I think that having world records, having ultimate angler programs, master angler programs, it goes a long way in just helping to raise awareness about growing some of those bigger fish and really encouraging people to be good stewards of what they have. We've talked about that on lots of levels. And I understand from the hunting aspect a little more, but I would say the biologists are doing a more holistic approach to reservoir stream management. And whether you're a catch or release or a catch and take, we won't get too far into that argument, but those creel limits are set and are pretty well monitored anymore. You don't have the good old days where people just went out and caught what they caught and did what they did. It's a little more regulated for sure. And that the benefit of that is we're seeing higher quality fisheries across the nation. Yeah, I would agree with that. And I think if the fish biologists are doing their due diligence and doing their job, the bodies of water that need you to come and catch and take, they're going to encourage that by setting creel limits that are very liberal, right? So that people can take a lot of fish. Maybe they have a slot limit where you can only keep them at a certain size. Those kind of things, I think, really help fish populations grow and help you grow record size fish. The ones that just stay the same all the time, they don't really pay attention to them because there are some places like that's where you have a problem. And I think like just here locally here in Fremont County, like we have an opportunity to grow some really big fish, because we have biologists that are paying attention. And it's really cool to bring a world record to Fremont County, especially from one that was in Minnesota. Minnesota is known for fishing, right? I would say Wyoming is more known for its hunting than its fishing. But we have some incredible fishing here. And so it's pretty cool to bring a world record back to the state and to see our fisheries biologists get really excited about it. I thought that was pretty cool too. So explain to me, what is a slot limit for somebody nomenclature who's never heard that term before? Yeah, so it's basically just saying like, certain size fish you can keep certain size you can't. So in some states, like if you catch a walleye between 15 inches and 20 inches, you can only keep two or three of those. And then you have to throw back everything under that size. And maybe they'll let you keep one over that size. So they're regulating the population based on the sizes that they want. So Flaming Gorge is an example where they want you to keep lake trout under 24 inches or 28 inches, something like that. But they want you to release the bigger fish because they have too many of the smaller fish in the reservoir to feed. And there's only so much food in that body of water. So that's essentially what slot limits are designed to do is you want to keep a lot of those eaters that people can take home. And by doing that, you reduce the amount of biomass or the amount of mouths to feed in that body of water, thus sustaining a better, healthier population where fish can actually grow to behemoth size. And I would say, thinking about it, it's pretty easy in the hunting world to do that kind of regulation. Well, it's a lot limit. Sometimes they say three point minimum, sometimes it's antlerless only, sometimes it's antlered only. And they have a whole bunch of reasons why they're putting those limitations to achieve different outcomes, right? Either reduce herd size, increase quality, increase male to female. But in fishing, it's a little harder to, especially freshwater fish, to really sex those fish and say, oh, that's a male, that's a female. During spawning time, potentially, yes. I think of salmon. It's pretty easy. When they're getting ready to spawn, they run up the river going, oh, that's a buck, that's a hen. 365, catching a walleye out in the lake. I could, until it's filleted, I couldn't really tell you what it was. Yeah, some fish species is pretty hard to tell the difference. And like you said, some of them, it's super easy. But some states go to, out in the Midwest, you have states that have fish openers and closers, like they have closed fishing season certain times a year for certain kinds of fish or certain drainages. Even in Wyoming, we have certain drainages that are closed at certain times to protect those spawning fish. And then again, it all goes back to that stewardship piece. What they want to do is have a good successful spawn so that we have lots of fish in the future. And I'm all in favor of that as long as it's not too restrictive. And it's actually based on what's best for that fishery. But yeah, quite a bit different bodies of water sturgeon might be protected certain times like around here, sauger if protected on the Wind River at certain times. And so you just have to pay attention and make sure that you're abiding by those regulations and that you're doing it right. It's all for the betterment of those species. And it's important to pay attention to that because we want good fishing for our kids. Oh, yeah. A world record I'd love to go chase would be halibut, right? But to sit here in Wyoming and say, you know what, I'm going to go break the halibut world record. It's 400 million pounds and there's been halibut are not a difficult fish species to target. They just aren't. If you've cat fished, they're similar to that. They're gonna eat bait that's on the bottom. Getting bait in front of them is the important part. Getting in on the fish is like anything you'd you could be in the same body of water on two different boats and one guy's limited out one guy doesn't catching fish. So part of it is just where you're at, right. But for me to sit here and say, Oh, I'm going to go get that record. You got to catch a lot of halibut and let a lot of halibut go and you're going to spend a lot of time and halibut lives coastal water specific and Atlantic. I'm a long ways from either either ocean. Realistically for me to sit down and say I'm going to get the next world record halibut. That's not a great goal to set for myself. However, if I want to set golden trout, shovelnose sturgeon, maybe even sucker. I know where a world record sucker is caught. I think there might be another one out there. There could be. And that's the thing. I've had a couple of people message me. They're like, we're going to come for your record. I'm like, do it. That's that's the point is that records are meant to be broken, right? And I'm sure it'll happen at some point. But this IGFA record has stood for almost 40 years. That's a long time. But if it stands for six months or if it stands for 60 years, you've got the piece of paper, you've gone out and accomplished it and done it and given recognition to that fish species. And part of that shows that, again, that ecosystem, that habitats got to be healthy if it's producing quantity and quality at the same time. Yeah. And I've told people for a long time, we are really lucky to live where we do because there are some massive fish here. You look at the state record walleye over 17 pounds, the yellow perch over two pounds, crappie over two pounds. There's some big fish in this area. And the potential for world records exists not just with white sucker, to your point. We could get a world record sogger here. We could do a world record a lot of things, but it just depends, again, on the body of water, the environmental conditions. But what's really cool is that I think everybody across the country has an opportunity. You just have to go and see what species of fish that you have that you could potentially chase a record for. It's fun to think about and something fun to try. It's always good to have goals. It's usually mine is like master anglers or I want to catch a new species or I want to catch a new fish to try to cook. And all that culminated in this world record because I wouldn't normally target sucker. I don't target sucker on purpose very often. And it's just another really cool species to go after. Again, if you're going to call yourself a great angler, which I hope to be able to do someday, you really got to be able to catch all the fish and learn how to catch all those fish. And that's part of the fun. You got to be multifaceted. And as you talk about that, I think about bear hunting, very specifically, carnivore hunting, but bear hunting, you've got to set goals, right? And if your goal when you first said, I'm going to break the world record, black bear, good luck, go ahead, have fun, right? I'm not going to say you shouldn't have that goal or somebody shouldn't. For me personally, if I wanted to get a bear, then I want to get a lot of bears, then I want to get a big bear. And now I just want to interact and see and be within bears territory, bear country, and be able to know what that bear is going to do before he does it right. Oh, he's going to use this saddle, he's going to use that edge of timber. Oh, he's going to come back out here. And the next goal is wolf. And then the next goal is mountain lion. And then the next goal and there's, you can keep setting those goals. And you don't have to be for lack of a better word, back east whitetail hunter and say, I'm going to break the county and state and the world record in inches of whitetail. It can just be, I'm going to break the record of how many deer walk under my stand this year and don't notice that I'm there, right? It could be a catch or release. How many rainbows can I catch or release on this body of water? And I think of couple reservoirs that are close to us on the right day on the right time. Boating 15 or 20 rainbows is a fun day. Oh yeah, it's so much fun. And giving yourself something to chase after is always a good thing. And no matter what you do in podcasting for us, it's how many episodes can we put out that are compelling that people want to listen to? How many different states can we hit people in to listen to it? You got to have goals for everything that you do in life. And I think for me for fishing, there's lots of different reasons that I do stuff like my kids, I want them to catch master anglers because I want them to get to catch all these cool fish and I want to do it too. And it's just a fun thing that we can all do together. But I think another cool part of it for me, especially over the last several years, has been, can I catch this fish and what does it taste like? Can I make with it? And that's where the whole sucker thing started was Jim Zumbo talking about how you can do this with them and you can do that with them. And I've never really tried that same thing with carp. Like I tried a bunch of stuff with carp this year I would have never done. I don't ever target carp specifically until this year. But it is fun to expand your horizons right and see what kind of angler you are see what you're made of and then of course see what that resource is all about see what that fish brings to the table quite literally that could be interesting or new and it's good to push yourself to try those new things.

A highlight from WORK THROUGH PAIN - Andrew Tate Motivational Speech
"It's actually very interesting, the masculine experience, because I like to believe that most men on the planet have lived a semi -similar timeline. All of us, as men, experience a very similar human paradigm, and that is that most men are born and you're not important, and then you go to school and you fall in love with some girl in school and she fucks someone else, and then you realize that all the 19 -year -olds you want when you're 19 are with older dudes because they have cars or whatever, whatever, and you go through this experience of getting your heart broken and losing your girlfriend, et cetera, et cetera, and many men latch onto some average bitch, or accept they're gonna have their heart broken forever, but some men decide to become so big and important and strong and irreplaceable that they never have to suffer heartbreak again, because every man deals with heartbreak and deals with sadness, but how you use that energy is the differentiation, the differentiator between humans, right? You are feeling the same pain that many men have felt. Every man out there has had his heart broken and understands how difficult it is as a man, but the difference between me and you, and perhaps some of the other men out there, is that certain men take that anguish and take that sadness and understand that energy cannot be destroyed. It can only be converted and used to build themselves into a man of absolute standing and power, as opposed to sitting around jerking off like you just told me you do. You are a waste. You are wasting your energy. Heartbreak is unlimited motivation. If I was heartbroken, it's been a very long time, but if I was heartbroken, I'd be in the gym every morning. I'd be a beast. I'd be running. I'd be working. I couldn't sleep. I'd be an absolute animal, and you're heartbroken, and what are you doing? Jerking off like a fucking dumb ass. If I feel extremely happy and excited, I'm gonna use that as motivation or energy to do amazing things and do good and work hard. If I feel absolutely depressed and distraught, I'm gonna use that as endless energy and motivation to do amazing things and work hard. It doesn't matter what you give me. Energy cannot be destroyed. It can only be converted and transferred. It doesn't matter what fuel you give me. If you give me diesel, petrol, kerosene, vodka, doesn't matter what you put inside of my engine. Heartbreak is gonna come out. Absolutely, that's all I know how to do. That's all I know how to do. It doesn't matter what fuel you put in my engine. My engine only knows how to do one thing, and that is succeed. That is only, that's all I know how to do. So it doesn't matter what you feed me with. I'm gonna be massively successful regardless. Doesn't change. When we talked earlier about speed, most people go, that, you know, it's only two weeks. It's only a week. It's only a week. People that say it's only a week are the people who are broke. That's the reason you're all poor, because you say it's only a week. It's almost tomorrow. Oh, I'll do it later. It's only an hour. It's only a day. It's only a minute. You are competing against people like me. We do not waste a second. The reason my father has talked about and discussed at length is because of the absolutely amazing son I have become. I am keeping him alive forever by working so hard, by becoming so unique and individual and fantastic and humble. The world asks me about my upbringings, and then my father's memory is kept alive. So I made, I know I made the right decision, and I know he's happy with the decision I made. A lot of people would have gotten emotional and decided how I had to go to the funeral and had a breakdown and went to the funeral and been sad, et cetera, et cetera. You did what your dad thought you would have watched. I did what I was taught to do, which is perform. That's what I was taught to do. I was upset, obviously. I was sad, obviously. I was heartbroken, of course, but I took all of that energy, and I worked harder than I've ever worked. I worked 22 -hour days for months, so I couldn't sleep, and I became one of the most successful people on the planet. Is that, would you say that's how you get over a tragic bus like that? I think that any emotion you feel should be converted into positive influence. Yeah, you should do good things with any emotion you feel. I can't, and what else are you gonna do? And this is a genuine question. What else, let's say your wife breaks your heart. If you're not gonna work, you can't sleep anymore. You're upset, she's running around with a new dude. You see her Instagram story, she's got some new guy. You're furious, and you're angry, and you're jealous, and you're bitter. You have all of this inside of you, but you're not gonna go to the gym and work hard and become so fantastically in shape and so rich and so powerful that no girl ever leaves you again. You're not gonna do that. What are you gonna do with it? Text her? Try and explain to her? She doesn't care. You can write the most perfect English. You can write the most beautiful words ever constructed. Forget Shakespeare. You can do, it doesn't matter. She doesn't care. She just doesn't care. She's distracted. She forgot about you. She forgot about you. So what are you gonna do with all of that inside of you if it's not positive? Well, it's gonna consume you and you're gonna end up self -destructive, or you're gonna embarrass yourself, or you can take all of that and to put yourself in a position where it never happens to you again. Those are the choices. So what's the most intelligent choice to make? If you walk through life and feel like you have nothing to prove, then you're a fucking loser. If you wake up each day and go, I don't owe anybody anything. I don't have to prove anything to anybody, then you are a loser because you are absolutely not the incorrect. You must prove yourself to other people. You must prove yourself to your bloodline as we just discussed. You must prove yourself to God. God hates the lazy. He can't stand them. If he gives you all these genetic dispositions and these natural God -given gifts, if you have two arms and two legs and you can think, and you're not trying your absolute best, that's the reason you're not lucky. He doesn't like you. He likes the people which show him the beauty of his own creation. He likes to give somebody building blocks and then to build something amazing. It's the best thing about being a man. You have to build who you are, right? You can decide if you wanna be a funny comedian or a musician or a kickboxing world champion or fight the matrix. You can decide whatever you wanna be. God loves to see that. For some reason, seem to be enormously lucky, right? The person who goes, I don't have to prove anything to God. I don't owe all of my ancestors any effort. You know, for 5 ,000 years, people were dodging saber -sooth -toothed tigers and catching the plague and running from Genghis Khan just for my stupid ass to be born. I don't owe them anything, but I owe them a thing because I wanna play video games. These people are fucking losers.

A highlight from GO TO WAR - Andrew Tate Motivational Speech
"I believe emotional energy is a lot like a bucket of water. You have all this emotional energy, right? You have a bucket of water. And then you have a bunch of different holes you can pour it down. So I believe if you wake up one day and you feel particularly depressed, you don't feel depressed. You just have a lot of emotional energy that day. Some days you don't have that much emotional energy and life's pretty calm. But some days you wake up and you have this big bucket of water and the superpower is deciding emotion which you're going to put it in. Not to not feel the energy, but to decide which emotion you're going to put it in. People always say, oh, I wish I had something to work on. You could work hard on anything. But if you truly work your ass off, it's difficult for it to have a negative impact on your life. Maybe you'll end up with an Instagram page, the best Instagram page on Twitter. Who knows, right? My point is that it's very hard to find truly, truly negative energy that's directed in a semi -positive direction. It's hard to say, I'm working my ass off at X and it's made my life worse. You know, you're not, you're not doing anything and you're asking the question, hoping I'm going to give you some magical answer that's going to allow you to be motivated forever. But motivation isn't real. Motivation isn't real. I do not feel like training, but I still train because I'm a disciplined individual. You don't get to go through life only doing the things you feel like doing. I love when God or life or the universal, whatever you want to call it, gives me a chance to be brave. I love when he gives me an opportunity. Here's your chance to be brave. Here's your chance to show you are that pie. Here's your chance to have another story where everyone else would have failed, you would have succeeded. Here is your chance to win. I love that. You know, the best mental model is God wants me to learn something and he's going to teach me that through suffering. He's going to make this difficult and he's going to make me feel pain and he's going to make this as hard as he decides it needs to be so that I can sit here and learn things. I'd love to be at that table. Tell me what I have to do. You know what you have to do, so go fucking do it. Stop asking us questions. Stop pretending you don't fucking know. You know what to fucking do. Go do it. You must understand that you must build a mind that allows you to compete day after day at the highest possible echelons and be successful. Build a competitive mind now. To do that, you must self -analyze. Everything in your life is your fault. By accepting everything in your life is your fault, it makes you more competitive. If you believe that things just happen to you or that bad luck just comes and you can't affect it, you're not as competitive as someone like me who believes that everything is my fault. When I was 23, 22, I didn't know shit. I'm 35 now, I'm on the smartest man on the planet and when I was 23, I didn't know shit. When you're 35, you're definitely going to still be a dumbass so when you're 23 like you are now, you don't know anything. Your only attribute is the fact you have Wolverine -like healing abilities and you're not using it. Stop talking, start listening, get out there, get hurt, get the fuck back up. As a man, you have to do the things you're supposed to do because what we said earlier is absolutely true. It's player versus player, my friend. Now, if I wake up, I've already got this massive head start over you in life and nearly every genetic gift plus all my finances plus my network and I wake up and I decide, even though I don't feel like working, I'm going to work my ass off and you wake up way down there, pee on, and you can't be bothered to work, what chance do you have against men like us? You don't stand a chance. You can't get the girl. We'll take the girl off you, we'll bankrupt your ass, we'll kick you out your house, you name it. You don't stand a chance. Now, if you're going to wake up and look in the mirror and understand that you're absolutely not crushable, that you're a rabbit and that lions exist and that's not going to motivate you to do something about it, then you're a lost cause and there's no point in asking us a question. You know exactly what you need to do. If you want to stay killable, then stay killable but I can't live that way. I would refuse to live that way. It's a disgrace to my bloodline. It's a disgrace to my parents who struggled to raise me for me to be anything other than the best version of myself. That's honor. I have honor to my last name and to my ancestry. It would be disgusting for them all to fall, saper -toothed tigers so I can wake my lazy ass up, jerk off all day, and ask on YouTube how I can stop being a fucking loser. You understand where I'm coming from? No, 100%. So this is down to you, my friend. You've decided being lazy is more important to you than having sexual access because as a man, it doesn't matter what you're born with, you can become what you want to be. You can become a superhero if you so choose and you chose not to. All those nights you sat home, all those times you played video games, all that shit you did, jerking off the pornhub, accumulated in, you not getting any replies to your DMs. You fucking deserve it. You deserve it. This is the world and the world is not fair or nice. This is human nature. I'm telling you now, I have zero sympathy for most of you guys because the lives you live are the lives you have built for yourselves. You've built it for yourself from head to toe. You're nothing but lucky. Bacteria could have stole your eyesight at the age of three and it didn't. You could have been in a car crash and lost both your parents. Never happened. You've been nothing but lucky. Blind luck has given you a favorable hand and you've managed to fuck it up. There is no light without dark. You will not appreciate your six pack unless you didn't have one and you had to earn it. That's how the world works. So when I talk to these dudes like, Oh, but it's, you know what Tate? Yeah, I agree. But you know, it's hard. It's hard. Of course it is. It's supposed to be. And if you're not cut out for it, then then fuck off and live a normal existence and die. That's your decision. If you want to level up your character, then you need to get out here and do it. You need to be around brave men. You need to get some balls. You need to get your network together. You need to be paying attention to things like the Fresh or Fit podcast. Listen to the truth. Humble yourself. Stop sitting there with an ego. Realize you ain't shit. Most of you fuckers could go and look in the mirror right now. And if you were totally honest with yourself, go look in the mirror and be honest with yourself and say, if I was a hot bitch, would I fuck me? And the answer for most of you is no. And listen, you may be feel fired up for 10 minutes after this little talk, you're not going to feel fired up forever. You need to put systems in place. You need a discipline. And like Justin says, you need to get an atmosphere of people around you who are going to keep you accountable and not make it easy for you to continue to be a fucking nobody. And then you're going to fix your life. Otherwise you're going to stay a nobody. That's your problem. It ain't my problem. It's true. They are trying to convince you that you should act how you feel. You should show more of your feelings. If you feel this way, you should show it. If you want to cry, cry. Look, I have no problem with guys crying. Sometimes guys cry, right? My dad died. I cried. I've cried once in 10 years, but it's not a default emotion for me. Sometimes you cry, right? What I'm saying is the reason they're trying to bring out emotionality in you is because of exactly what Myron said. Most of the time you don't feel like doing the things you're supposed to do. But the true masculine frame throughout history was doing the things they didn't want to do, but they knew they had to do because they had honor and duty. That's what honor and duty means. Do you think the men on the Titanic wanted to stay on the fucking Titanic? No. We're men. We have to stay. We're scared, but we must. It's our duty to let the women and children on the lifeboats. This is masculine duty. When you remove self -control from men, not only do you get emasculate and weak men, but you also get very dangerous men. Because the world at large is trying to tell you, just be more in touch with your feelings and everything's going to be fine. Men also have an innate desire, one for conquest, and two, we have a biological response. We are very predispositioned to anger. You look at all these school shooters and shit, these are men who can't control their emotions. That's all they are. They have no self -control. And then they go and do dangerous shit. A good man controls himself. I don't believe in depression, so I'll use it. We'll talk about depression here in a second. I can wake up sad. I can ache. I can have a busy day, stressed, etc. I will complete the same tasks as if I woke up in a fantastic mood. I'll do the same things, because how I feel has no bearing on the things I'm going to do with my day, because I have duty to myself and to my bloodline. So all you guys out here are acting like fools because you feel like acting like fools. And what I'm going to say to you is, because you think there's something wrong with you, you go, I don't, I lack motivation. You hear this one? I don't have the motivation to go to the gym. Well, here's the newsflash. Neither did I. And I still did it. So now what are you going to say? Now you have no excuse, right? Oh, you're scared to get in the ring. So was I. I still did it. Scared to get the cage. So was I. I still did it. Being a man is about not feeling things. It's about acting the way you're supposed to act, regardless of how you feel. If I had to choose how I wanted to feel all the time, I would choose proud. And proud means you have to work. Proud means you have to do things. You have to achieve things. If you want to be proud and be realistic, you have to do fantastic things. So my default favorite emotion is proud. That's how I'm happiest when I feel proud about anything.

Northwest Radio News is your home for breaking news and traffic and weather every 10 minutes on the force. Long -list from the High Performance Homes Traffic Center. Uh -huh you know when it starts raining like this we start seeing the flooding of the rivers and it really happens to really hit that Snoqualmie River Valley. So we're going to see a lot of those usual roads closed between Carnation and Falls City including West Snoqualmie River Road, South of Tolt Hill Road, Southeast 24th Street, Neal Road, etc. But right now it's just the first signs of some closures around there. We also have some log jam removal happening on the trestle. Eastbound Highway 2 approaching Highway 204 so that right peak whose shoulder lane is being used by maintenance crews and blocked it is right now. Eastbound State Route 526 in Everett is rolling so already as you approach the I -5 area. Southbound 5 and Seattle seeing most of its crowding south of the Yudich to the Convention Center. We're already heavy out of Bellevue on both of directions 405 at a crash southbound 405 at Cool Creek Parkway that's been blocking two left lanes. That's not helping things although across Lake Washington it's been pretty easy so far this afternoon although I do see some slowing westbound 90 around Rainier Avenue. A busy day eastbound 18 over Tiger Mountain Summit as you approach I -90. We're seeing scattered slowdowns on the Valley Freeway south on 167 at South 180th passing Willis Street and already filled in between Algona and Sumner. is Southbound I getting -5 busier up that south center hill as you approach south 200th but again our travel time getting through the southbound around Olympia between Olympia and Tacoma should be no more than 33 minutes in either direction and that's pretty good.

I've got a repeat guest, my friend Jason Prall who is the creator of the Human Longevity Project. He is the bestselling author of the book Beyond Longevity, a proven plan for healing faster, feeling better and thriving at any age and we are going to talk about sleep light and circadian rhythm and how that plays a role in mitochondrial health, aging and longevity. So this is a really power packed episode. You guys are in for a treat. We're going to talk about different theories of aging. We're going to talk about some of the main hierarchy of symptoms and how to really understand symptoms you might be experiencing and we're going to dive deep into sleep light and circadian rhythm and how critical that is. So I know you guys are going to get a lot out of this and be certain to check out Jason's website. You can go to beyondlongevitybook .com to check out his book Beyond Longevity and also his film where he traveled all around the world and studied some of the longest lived people, people who are aging really, really successfully, you can check that out at humanlongevityfilm .com. So again, you're in for a treat here. If you've not left us a five star review, now is the time to do that. Just go to Apple iTunes or wherever you listen to the podcast, scroll to the bottom or wherever it says write a review. Go ahead and leave us a five star review. When you do that, it helps us reach more people and impact more lives with this message. Thank you for doing that. Thank you for being a part of our community and let's go into the show. Well, Jason, always great to connect. And I know we've talked in the past and I had mentioned how much I really enjoyed your book. I mean, I talked about it in the intro, but I love this book, Beyond Longevity, phenomenal book and anybody that's interested in aging and longevity. This is the go to books, really the best book that I've read on that topic. And so just really appreciate your wealth of knowledge and really appreciate your overall perspective on this. And I'm excited to really, really dive into some of these topics that you discussed in the book and really starting with this idea of what is longevity, right? Because that's kind of something that most people think they know, right? But it's a little deeper than what most people really understand. Yeah, well, I appreciate that. The kind where it's really from all the work that you do, it means a lot. So thank you for that. And yeah, it's interesting. We're in such an interesting time when it comes to longevity because we have this new medicine that's coming online with stem cells and biologics, which is essentially dipping back into our own innate intelligence. So that's an interesting thing to explore. And then we have the other side of the coin, which is all this technology, which is interesting and also potentially dangerous and very kind of weird in another way. We can go down some really dark rabbit holes in that realm, and we kind of are in some ways. So we're at a very interesting nexus. I think how we think about aging and how we think about longevity is really, really important. There's historical context for aging and for longevity and for life itself as a cycle. So it's really important to, I think, really explore these things from a foundational principle. Because if we lose that, then we're going to start veering off into these random territories that are going to get us in trouble. And so for me, when I wrote the book, it's like longevity is an important thing. We want elders. We want really experienced people to guide our younger generations. There's a lot of benefits to increasing longevity on the planet. But then it's like, what is longevity? What is aging? How do we think about aging? It's a very deep topic. And I interviewed you for my film series, The Human Longevity Project. And I remember we interviewed 80, 90 health experts. You were one of them. And I asked this question to many of them, I said, what is aging? And not a single person gave me the same answer. And these are very, very intelligent people who do a lot of work in a lot of different realms in the health sciences. And so that's interesting. It's interesting the fact that we don't have a definition of biological aging. So I actually had to sit and think about that for what that is. And it's really a process. So a lot of the times when we're thinking about aging and anti -aging and longevity, what most people are actually talking about are the effects of, quote unquote, aging, the damage that accumulates over time as a result of aging. We still don't really know what aging is, what causes this process in an organism, be it salamander, a a whale, a tiger, or a human, right? But it's an innate process. So it's built into all these organisms, right? And so there's interesting things when it comes to aging itself. And so without going too deep into that rabbit hole, because we can get lost in that, it's important to recognize that damage is one thing, and aging is another thing. And I think we can slow the rate of aging. In fact, I'm quite confident we can do that. I'm not so confident that we can stop aging altogether. And I'm absolutely convinced that we can't anti -age, right? We can't go backwards. Now, look, we use these terms colloquially, right? You probably use it, I use it, right? And it's okay. But I think what I want to affect here is that the term anti -aging is really damage reversal, right? The ability to sort of turn back the clock from a damage perspective on a cellular level or an organ level. So in a sense, it's like anti -aging, but really, it's just cleaning up some damage. And we're utilizing the repair mechanisms that are built within us. But that's the important distinction is, yes, we can turn on repair. Yes, we can clean up damage. And no, we can't undo whatever aging is and whatever is actually guiding that process. Again, we don't know. Whatever is doing that, I'm confident that we sure as heck can't figure out how to undo that yet. Like that would be like Benjamin Button style, like going backwards and we start getting younger and, you know, in 10 years, I'm now 20 again. Like that is just not going to happen, right? So just want to like lay that framework down because I think it's really important as we have these discussions about longevity, what it is we're really talking about. And I think it is slowing the rate at which one ages and or cleaning up damage that has already accumulated. And we can do that to an extent because we have the mechanisms built within our biology. We have that magic within us. That's what's cool. Yeah, that's really good. I mean, we know that damage is going to happen. It happens to all of us. In fact, actually, it's to some degree, it's necessary. You know, it's a hormetic stressor that creates adaptation and creates a level of resilience with our body. So we know the damage is going to occur. We can't get around that. So then, you know, the other factor is how well we respond and recover. So I've heard the term, you know, healthy aging is really successful adaptations to the stressors that we're under and how successfully we're adapting. Absolutely. And it's a balance, right? Like if we lose this ability to destroy cells to, in other words, create death on a micro level, then we have cancer, right? So so we actually want cells to die. We need cells to die. We need mitochondrion to die, right? And that's a really critical aspect. In fact, there's a lot of longevity researchers that are in the mitochondrial sciences that are in the cancer sciences that are looking at these sort of rates of how much apoptosis do we want? How much autophagy do we want, right? If we have too much of something, it's bad. If we have too much of another thing, it's also bad. So there's a there's a dynamic balance that is always occurring inside the body. And this becomes the art form, if you will, of how do we do this throughout our lives, knowing that this is going to happen. We want it to happen. We want to actually encourage it to happen. And a lot of the things that we look at in the health world, right, when it comes to, again, exercise, sunlight, fasting, certain foods, these are all hormetic stressors, right? In other words, they are damage causing. They are they're innately creating a pressure on the system, right? Some sort of selective pressure, adaptive pressure that the that our organism has the amazing ability to both sense and then and then adapt and modify in order to meet that stressor, right? So that's what's really, really amazing about our human organism. And yet we push it too hard. Then it gets out of this hormetic zone and it gets into the straight damage, right? And yet again, just like if I were, well, actually, it was at the gym a few months ago and sliced my finger up and had to go get stitches and all that, right? And it was like, it looked like it went through a meat grinder. I mean, the nail was hanging off and I'm like, Oh my God. And yet the doc comes in there, throws in like four stitches through the nail bed and all this, but my finger miraculously heals, right? And right now there's a lot of scar tissue in there. So there's, there's some reorganization of the tissue itself, but over time, it's going to go back to a normal finger, like pretty much all the way, right? Like that's remarkable. So we have this intelligence within us. So no matter how much damage we cause, we can almost recover from anything. Like that's, what's really remarkable. And the younger that we are, because there's something important about youth itself, right? The amount of STEM cells we have, the, the, all the growth factors, all the magic that is within a young life form, there's vitality in there. Um, that does wane over time, right? That guy is part of the aging process, but when we sort of make mistakes early in life, we can still come back from them, right? So this is really remarkable. And that's, what's worth acknowledging here is that there's, it's really important to remember that there's an innate intelligence. There's a built in magic to us, right? And to honor that, to respect it and not sort of try to play God in every turn, because it gets us into trouble, right? To really trust the inbuilt humanity is really, really important in this process.

You should know a production of I heart radio Hey and welcome to the podcast I'm Josh and there's Chuck and Jerry's here too and this is stuff you should know the podcast about revenge We've done an episode on it was like a top 10 on cases legendary cases of revenge Oh, yeah, I remember that but we didn't talk much about Revenge itself and I feel it was high time. We've been dancing around it for decades now And here we are I Thought this is a great idea. So kudos to you because it Dave helped us out with this one and it's a lot of like science and studies have Sort of and I'm not gonna spoil anything but have sort of About revenge and what it means for the person getting the revenge. Yeah, I think most people How we feel about revenge it's from watching movies and it's like deeply satisfying to watch the Bad guy who deserves revenge get get their comeuppance right sure is or even be killed Just like yes that guy deserved that kind of thing. But in reality carrying out acts of revenge or They just it's not like the movies I guess is what I'm trying to say and yet there's a lot of evidence of revenge in real life so much so that the New York Police Department came out with a study in 2012 and Found out that 42 % of the homicides in New York were motivated by revenge man, so and that actually kind of underscores like a problem with revenge is That when you enact vengeance on somebody and you leave them alive almost Invariably that person feels like you overdid What in response to what they they did it was disproportionate. So now they have to strike back again And it can go back and forth until somebody dies or else somebody can die right away is the first act of revenge But the the point of the whole thing is is that once you do carry out revenge no matter if it's petty exciting somebody up for spam or Killing somebody in response to whatever Slight like road rage. They cut you off in in traffic. You don't feel good afterward You actually feel worse and that's the underlying point of this entire episode Yeah, you know my my favorite petty I don't do it, but my favorite petty revenge to witnesses It's pin and it's so dumb Everyone just settle down is on a highway when someone Is on an expressway and they clean their windows and it gets all over the car behind them Yeah, I see people all the time race in front of that person and do the same thing. Oh my god, really? Yeah, that is Petty that is Tom Petty. That's not Tom Petty because somebody was great That's just petty and I also wanted to say to you talked about Revenge coming back harder or whatever Emily has her own personal Saying like when we're messing around and I like I will do something to her Or I'll say something kind of mean as a joke. She'll she'll eviscerate me if it is and she calls it coming back double She goes I come back double. Oh boy I was one of those people that Think she gets pushed in the corner and is and man she comes out hard So it's it's a good trait and it can and one to be wary of at the same time Yes, I'm suddenly way more wary of Emily than I was before luckily I stayed on her good side You wouldn't come at Emily. Anyway, you're smart. No, so There's a lot of questions revolving around revenge if if the if we know for a fact It feels good to think about but then feels bad to do. Mm -hmm Despite the fact that when we're thinking about it, we're like this is going to feel good It's not the act of thinking about it. That feels good It's fantasizing about how good it's gonna feel to get that person back And set the universe right again to do all sorts of things that revenge allegedly does and it turns out When you carry out an act of revenge you are playing the chump to evolution and on behalf of society as a whole and That's kind of like the whole basis of a revenge. There's a Extensively in the animal kingdom and it really collides with the the modern evolved humans That live in these complex societies. We've formed today When you get those two things together an interesting podcast comes out. That's right what you're talking about the animal kingdom is also called retaliatory aggression and that is the idea that So let's say a lion mama goes out and kills an animal To leave for her little cubs to eat Another animal is like oh, you know Let me see if I could sneak in there eat some of that too The mama lion doesn't just scare this thing off to preserve that meat for the kids The mama lion goes and hunts down and kills that animal. Yes, that's good. They come back double Emily style Right. I mean like the the problem solved the hyena has been chased away But to leave your kids and go find it and kill it. That's that is Seems only retaliatory aggressive. Yeah, and this next one too. I'm gonna mention These are interesting because it made me sort of question the idea of revenge versus punishment Right because I think those are different things. Yeah, the rhesus monkey We've talked a lot about their vocalizations like they're all about the group or they should be at least and like when they find food Let's say they will tell everyone. Hey, I found food But if a rhesus monkey is ever like, you know I'm gonna have a little bit of this first before I call out and if they find that out There's a punishment for that rhesus monkey. I don't think they kill it But there is a punishment and this is the idea that these retaliatory aggressions are Deterrence it's like a punishment for everyone to see to prevent future transgressions like hey, did you hyena see that? Did you other rhesus monkey see that? So that you know would be an advantageous thing Evolutionarily speaking so that gene gets passed on Yeah Because the more the more you're prone to do that the the likelier you are to not have food stolen from you for your kids The likelier it is for your kids to survive and and your lineage to survive. So it makes sense Evolutionarily speaking this retaliatory aggression does at least right? Yeah, which I would still argue is punishment more than revenge. I Absolutely, I think you're absolutely right and there's a there's a story a couple of stories of Tigers actually engaging in what can only be described as revenge and it's very much up in the air whether what we're witnessing is actual revenge, but like you know, like there was a very famous story out of Russia where like a poacher not only shot a But also took some of their kill and that the tiger tracked the guy down found his his little lodging destroyed everything you could find in lodging and then waited outside for the hunter to come back and then kill them and that the Tiger managed to hold this idea in his head Or I think it was a her her head for up to maybe 24 hours after the the hunter shot her There's a there's a couple of stories out there that seem to pertain to Tigers Specifically that it's almost like it does contain an emotional component to it, but for the most part Yes, it's it's solving in a problem and then maybe preventing future problems among the animals Yeah, you know one of my favorite sayings is revenge is a meal best served cold Yeah, I don't know why cuz I'm not a revenge guy really, but I just I think that it's just such a great saying I just like it, you know, there's something about like oh, no, no The real revenge is like when you wait around for a while Oh, yeah, and then when you would might not be suspected you come back and take that revenge Yeah, because if you just immediately do it in response, you're a hothead and a dummy anybody can do that But just sit there and really stew on it and figure out the best way to really get back at the person that takes intellect Yeah, I agree and a little bit of craziness.

A highlight from Autumn Angling Adventures: Hooking into Fall Fishing with Patrick and David
"This episode of RadCast Outdoors is brought to you by PK Lures, Bow Spider, and High Mountain Seasonings. Fish on! Hey, RadCast is on! Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. This is RadCast Outdoors. Here are David Merrill and Patrick Edwards. Well, hello, and welcome to another episode of RadCast Outdoors. I'm Patrick Edwards. And I'm David Merrill. Hey, man, it is time for fall fishing season. It is fall fishing season. If you haven't got your boat out in the water, got the dust off the reels, you know, I don't know where you've been because, you know, open water is the best water to fish by far. Oh, yeah, for sure. And it's been a good year, at least in Wyoming. It hasn't been oppressively hot, which has been great this summer. And the fishing has been delightful. And it's only going to get better as we transition into fall. Most people in the fall, they're petting their firearms and bows and getting ready for that. I'm getting my rods and reels geared up for fall fishing because fall fishing is my favorite. We were just talking, I was showing off my rod and reel. I got a bow fishing set up and we need to get the dust off of that one. Go shoot some carp. For sure. So to start out, if somebody's had their boat out, obviously they kind of know the routine, but probably should make sure, same idea, safety stuff is number one. Life jackets, whistle, fire extinguisher, horn. Yeah. Trailer wiring is always a bugger. Every time I hook to a different vehicle to go somewhere, it just seems like Murphy's law. That is a pet peeve of mine. Why is it such a pain in the rear? Because it's like, you know, you pull a camper and it's like, everything works good. And then you hook up a boat trailer and you're like, man, my running lights or whatever. I don't understand, but it's inevitable. The headlights and taillights on your truck work every time. Yeah. I mean, occasionally a bowl burns out, you replace it and it's good for another couple of years. And you've got to go check the fuse box and start testing all these fuses. It's back to that Patrick McManus. You're always six inches short of rope and the test of a relationship is hooking and backing a trailer. Oh man. So that is one of the most entertaining things every year is when I go to the boat ramp and I watch people struggle with that. By the way, if you're one of those people that struggles, I'm not making fun of you, but it is kind of entertaining to watch people back up their boat trailer. I do have a tip and a trick for that, right? And it's, you have to do everything in reverse. So if you just grab the bottom of the steering wheel and you use your thumb as an arrow, right? When whichever way your thumb is pointing on the bottom of the steering wheel, that's the way the trailer is going to go. Or for me, what I've found is just put your arm on the passenger seat, turn your head around and just watch the trailer. And I can back up at 15 miles an hour and it just, you get a feel for, you know, length and throw of each trailer is a little different. But here's the other thing with that. If you're going to move your trailer at all, make sure your dogs and kids are out of the way. All your loved ones, anybody that could get hurt because bad things do happen. So make sure that they're out of the way. But like on boat ramps, especially, you have to pay attention because like at Boyson, it's a perfect example, Tough Creek, there's a beach right there by the boat ramp and little kids play in there. You have to be careful. You can't be, you know, just flying back in there. If you're really good at backing in a boat, pay attention to what's going on because you don't want to hit a kid. But yeah, I mean, the other thing that gets overlooked on boats is the bearings. Make sure your bearings have been packed and greased and that everything is good to go because it sucks when you have a blowout and your bearings bad and then your trailer, you're going to have to drop it and go into town and get some things and come back and try to fix it. It can be a real mess. So always make sure if you're doing a camper or a boat, you're getting your bearings packed and greased and make sure everything's ready to go. Make sure you have a spare too. Spares are important. A hundred percent. Spares are very important. So we've talked a little bit about it. I'm getting ready to go fish a lake here in Wyoming out of the water ski boat. It's a, I guess we'll, we'll, we'll show it. Shall we let them know where I'm going? Yeah, go for it. I'm going to head up to bowl lake and uh, right now the limit on lake trout is infinite. They want those pups out of there. I'm going to go harvest some meat, but we're going to go camp for a day or two and get an evening and morning and an evening fish in. So what are some things, you know, besides making sure the boat's prepped, making sure rods and reels are prepped. I mean the species I'm targeting is obviously lake trout, but there's going to be some Browns in there. There's going to be some rainbows. What are some things I need to be a bringing pertaining to catching fish and what is some structure things and other things I should be looking at paying attention to water weather. So I know it's a big open ended question, but if somebody else out there and they should be able to take and interpret this towards their specific species they're targeting. So first of all, let's talk about what most fish do this time of year. So we are in mid August. It's hot fish typically this time of year looking to cool down just a little bit, especially here in Wyoming. Most of them are cool to cold water species so that you're going to have to look a little bit deeper. Most of the time, early morning, maybe not so much, but as the day wears on, certainly they're going to be deeper, including walleye, lake trout, all those things. But going to Bull Lake, one thing I would do is I would reach in and get the arsenal of PK lures because the spoon bite on fall fish is phenomenal. And it doesn't matter whether you're going after a walleye, a lake trout, a brown trout, they're going to hit all of it. So I would take the gold, the copper, the nickel on the flutter fish and the PK spoons because they like that kind of flashy stuff this time of year. I would also take, you know, the red dot glow that everybody loves and the fire tiger glow, but fishing at Bull Lake, one of the things you can do is you can actually cast up towards the structure. It drops off pretty fast and work that spoon as it falls, rip and drop as it's falling. You'll notice with those lake trout, your lure will stop. So you'll, you'll see it coming down. You have to kind of pay attention to your line because a bite when you're not paying attention, it'll be fluttering down all of a sudden it'll stop. You better set the hook fast because otherwise they're going to spit it back out. You know, green is also a great color up there. I always tell people to take the fire tiger and the fire tiger glow because green works on lake trout. It does just about everywhere I fished them and white. So that red dot glow is a good color too. The other thing, inlets, outlets, middle of the lake, just where the structure is in between. I'd be looking for structure adjacent to deep water because that's where they're going to be hanging out. The other thing you might do to increase your odds, because they may be a little finicky is get some cut sucker, which by the way, I know a supplier, um, for sucker meat if you want some, but get some cut sucker meat. You know, you can tip just a little bit. You don't have to do much. And what I like to do is cut it into strips for a couple of reasons. One, it doesn't get your treble hook too gummed up with too much stuff. You want to have good hookups, right? But you also can create a little bit of action because what that spoon does when you're constant retrieving it or when you're ripping it, it works that treble hook back and forth, kind of like a dog's tail wagging. And if you have a piece of meat, like a little strip about quarter of an inch or a little skinnier if you can wide flopping off the back, it looks like a tail. How long? I usually go about an inch to two inches. That's all you need. You don't need much. It makes a lot of sense to me to have that little tail on there. And it gets sent, you know, like sent a big deal to trout. People don't realize trout rely on their sense of smell a lot, almost as much as catfish. It's crazy how much they, you know, relay sent to, Hey, that's something I can eat. And that's why when we ice fish, typically we're, we're tipping our treble hooks with that as well, because you know, minnow heads, minnow bodies, you know, a lot of our lakes, you can't fish live minnows. So like if you're at check your regulations, but you know, minnows are great. Soccer meats, great. Just because it gives that scent. Again, if you can take that strip of meat and make it look like a tail or something with some action, you're typically going to increase your odds of catching a fish. So you mentioned that those fish are going to be chasing that deeper, colder water. You know, I imagine kind of like we do in the afternoon here, it's hot. I'm going to go find a shady spot. I'm not just going to be out in the full blown sun. How about the bite? Is it going to, you know, my experience off water, salinoids, whatever, mornings and evenings are always better than midday. Is that going to be typical what you find on a lake? Yeah. And it depends on the species, but I would say trout as a general rule are going to bite better early and late, but they also bite during the middle of the day. Sometimes you'll have killer lake trout bites right in the middle of the day. And I know our lake trout people are listening or nodding their heads because I mean, they can get down in that thermocline, get down to that cooler water and you know, just get below the thermocline even, and you can, you can work those fish and catch them all day long because they're comfortable. And if they're hungry, like with elk, if they're really, really active at midnight, I mean, we're talking, they weren't very active in the evening. All of a sudden it gets dark, they get super active. You can hear them screaming out your tent all night. And then all of a sudden it's like somebody turned the spec off when the sun come up. Midday, those elk are gonna, cause they went to bed is what happened. They get up and they go, you know what, I'm going to stretch my legs and go get a bite to eat. And most guys have gone back to the trailer and they're, they're sleeping at noon. I've killed my biggest bull. So at noon, remember what bill Seimontel talked about, he said hunting and fishing are basically the same thing. It's just one's underwater. Well, fish are no different. Like the moon phases do have an effect. I still haven't figured out exactly the effect, but there is one like, so I'll give walleye as an example. When you have a full moon phase going on, typically they're biting all night long. They're out hunting, doing their thing. And then during the day, sometimes it's a little slower. And so it's kind of the same thing as elk, right? If if the moon's out there feeding and then during the day they're bedded down, they're taking a nap. I focus on setting my archery elk hunt up around the moon, right? And I hunt during the full moon too, but I'm just basically filling time until that moon goes away. And it is, I mean, it's like somebody turns the switch on and all of a sudden, you know, and you've been there fishing the same spot, the same lure, eight o 'clock, nine o 'clock, 10 o 'clock. You had a few bites at eight, nothing at nine, 10, then all of a sudden 10, 30 rolls on and it's fish on, fish on, fish on. It's maddening to me. Sometimes I'll show it up at a walleye spot at like three or four in the morning and I'll catch a couple. And then from six to six, 15, it's as fast as I can cast, you know, they're hitting and then shuts off again. So I'm talking about fishing from the bank, right? Like it's just, there's that open window where they move in, they feed hard and they move back out. And that's something that happens in the fall that a lot of people don't realize is that fish are coming in. I'll give walleye as an example. If you're going to do fall fishing, cause this is a fall fishing episode. If you're going to fall fish, walleye fishing in the fall is the best time of the year in my opinion, because you're going to catch bigger fish because you know, they've spawned early in the spring. They're starting to grow those egg sacs back. They start to bulk up a little bit and they're on the feed getting ready for winter. What happens in most of our Western reservoirs is you'll have walleyes chasing emerald shiners and shad. What happens with emerald shiners and shad, again, you have to know what the bait's doing to catch the fish that are pursuing the bait is they start to school up pretty hard. And so you'll see millions, and I'm not exaggerating, millions of emerald shiners, millions of shad suspended out in the deeper water during the day. And then they'll move in at night along like rock faces and cliffs. Guess where the walleyes are? They're right there with them. They're following that bait. They're going to eat until they can't eat anymore. And I've had times in the fall where I'll catch like a 19, 20 inch walleye. Sometimes, you know, some of the bigger walleyes, they'll be throwing up emerald shiners and crappie because the crappie are also following the emerald shiners. And so you'll pick them up and there's just all these fish just start spewing out of their mouth and you're like, how did you even eat my lure? You know, this is insane that you're eating this much. But you got to understand that as these fish come out of summer, they're on like hyper driving summer. They're feeding, feeding, feeding because it's warm. They're getting ready for fall. Fall kind of starts that transition of they really pack it on because they're like, man, winter is coming. It's kind of like we're doing right now. It's no different than bears or firewood, harvest, you know, all these things. We're getting ready for winter too. Well, the fish are no different. They're getting ready. We have to understand that as anglers and as hunters, right? What are the animals doing to prep for winter? Well, in the case of walleyes, lake trout, they're eating like crazy and you can catch a ton of fish. And the nice thing about fall, no offense to the hunters, but when you guys are out in the field, I got a lot more elbow room on the lakes and reservoirs and rivers, right? So I can go out and I can catch more fish. So it's actually pretty advantageous if you are the person who's like an avid angler or maybe you've tagged out, grab your fishing rod, you know, head down to your favorite river, lake stream, figure out what the bait are doing because then you're going to find out what the walleyes, what the lake trout, what the rainbows, what the browns, whatever they're doing, you're going to figure it out. We're getting ready to go get firewood this weekend, all weekend. I think we're going to throw a couple of rods and reels in. There's a couple of streams around. I think we can get the kids on some brookies for an evening. So you just inspired me to, you know, we're going on a mission of I want firewood. And after last winter, if you guys have been around, you heard about it, it was brutal. And I ran out of wood, not once, not twice, but three times. How do you run out of wood three times? Well, I'd go get a pickup load, burn through it thinking that, hey, we got enough to make it and be beg, borrow and stealing another pickup load. So yeah, the fall, the fall fishing is absolutely phenomenal. There's no reason that you can't take your kids. It's usually a nice time of year too, because you can throw on a hoodie, some jeans, go down to the body of water and fish and be comfortable and you can fish late. That's the cool thing is like, you know, go on a Friday night, you can go out and you can fish walleye from, you know, seven o 'clock, six o 'clock, you know, until 10, 11, 12 at night and just enjoy the crisp, clean air, the stars in the sky, you know, catching some fish and I've taken you and done this and it's really fun is like, if you're fishing like a suspending crank along some rocks and you're, what you do is you basically do a couple of retrieves and then kind of twitch your lure a couple of times and just let it sit there. And then you feel that walleye come up or that big trout and just grab it, yank it the other way, almost yanked the rod out of your hand. It's so much fun, isn't it? The only thing that's more exciting than that is when the metal sign behind you falls off the chain and clangs down the clangs down the rocks. And you think it's jumped 10 feet in the air on that one. I thought a pickup would come over the bank and was rolling down the hill on top of me. It was good times. Yeah, I don't think it was as funny as you do, but oh man, it was great. So for the listeners out there, it was about a three by four foot metal sign that said something. I don't care what it says anymore, but it was hanging on one chain and it played two T posts and we're down there at midnight, one o 'clock fishing for walleye and, and any second you can have your, the rod ripped right out of your hands. So you're, you're on high alert keyed in and we got, you know, headlights kind of on, but not really. There was just enough light that you could sort of see what you're doing. And so I've keyed in, I'm ready to go. And all of a sudden, I mean, it was like 10 pots and pans clanging behind me five feet. And I, I, yeah, I think I did, I jumped and I might've said an expletive or two. I was, uh, I was animated for quite a while after that. That's all right. That's all right. It was fun. And some crazy things happen when you fish in the fall too. Like, um, you know, I think of, you know, different friends that I've taken out and, you know, we go catch walleyes, go catch these big trout. One time I took Seth out there and we were fishing late at night and he's like, oh, I got one. And his line took off from the water up into the air. And what had happened was an owl had come in and grabbed his lure and took off with it. I have never seen that in my life. That was one of the craziest things I've ever seen. This, this big old owl, big, great horned owl comes down, snatches his lure and takes off. And thank goodness it came off it, let go of the hook because can you imagine trying to unhook a really cranky, great horned owl from your line? No, thank you. So those things are vicious. Statue of limitations is past, but we did a lot of trolling on strawberry and flaming gorge as a kid.
A highlight from Part 1: USAs World Cup Collapse, Basebrawls, Jets Optimism, Life in The G-League and The OC 20 Years Later | with Gabe York and Zoe Simmons
"Coming up, an unexpected two -part podcast cameo from me. It's next. We're also brought to you by the Ringer Podcast Network, where we turned over Sean Fennesey and Amanda Dobbins' big picture feed to Brian Raftery. It's a narrative podcast called, Do We Get to Win This Time? How Hollywood Made the Vietnam War. You can find it on the big picture starting on Tuesday. And it is an idea I'm really excited about because it came from a class that I did as a senior in college in 1992. Me and my friend Horgs talked a movies professor into doing a special Vietnam War movies class where we watched basically every Vietnam War movie that had been made up to 1992 and then tried to write a big picture term paper about it. And the thing that was really fascinating about that class and something that stuck with me was just that whole concept of Hollywood reinventing the entire Vietnam experience under the premise of, Did We Get to Win This Time? So we got Brian involved and he turned the idea into an awesome, awesome podcast. I even went and dug up the term paper that I wrote 31 years ago. I thought it was gonna be horrendous. It wasn't bad. I was kind of proud of myself, retroactively 31 years later. Anyway, Do We Get to Win This Time? How Hollywood Made the Vietnam War. It is gonna be in the big picture podcast starting on Tuesday. So that's one piece of business. Second, new rewatchables on Monday night. It is the 300th movie that we've done. It's a special one. We're doing National Lampoon's Vacation. It was time. Meet Chris Ryan, Van Lathan. Yeah, and Van was pushing for it because we wanted to do Christmas Vacation during the holidays and you can't do Christmas Vacation. If we do National Lampoon's Vacation, super fun. Can't wait for you to listen to it. And we'll be running the video at some point on the YouTube channel, youtube .com slash Bill Simmons, where we put up a whole bunch of rewatchables podcasts in case you missed it. Boogie Nights is up there now. Goodfellas, Independence Day, just a slew of them. So if you're bored and you wanna throw on some rewatchables and watch us make fun of each other, there you go. Last but not least, I don't wanna say this is the most important, but it's certainly the thing I spent the most time on. Our documentary that we did about the G League with Religion of Sports and Ringer Films, we combined, and it is premiering on Tuesday, August 8th. It is called Destination NBA, A G League Odyssey. It's really good. We immersed ourselves into the G League season. We followed Scoot Henderson, Gabe York, Ryan Terrell, Mason Jones, and Denzel Valentine. And the big question was, what is this world like? What's it like to be in the G League? And I am really proud of where we landed with it. And we even have, much later in this podcast, Gabe York is gonna come on. He's one of the five that we followed, and he's gonna tell us what it's like as you're holding on to your dream in your late 20s. We try not to spoil the doc too much with Gabe, but I really liked him. He's probably the guy that jumps out of the doc in the most sympathetic way. So look forward for you to watch it. It is prime video, Tuesday, August 8th, Destination NBA. A G League Odyssey. You love basketball, just watch it, it's good. So there you go. This is gonna be part one of a two -part podcast. Gabe is coming up later. My daughter Zoe Simmons is coming up later because we did a whole bunch of OC stuff on the Prestige TV podcast. I was even on two of the episodes. But I ended up watching season one of the OC. And my daughter was watching with us and loved the show. And she was born a year and a half after it premiered. So me and her broke down season one from the perspective of what is it like when somebody 18 watches the OC, a show that is now two decades old. The anniversary was actually August 6th. And what she liked, what she didn't like, what people aren't doing anymore for her kind of audience. And we just dove into it. So that is much later. First, coming out of the gate, I'm gonna open a six -pack because we have a lot to discuss over the past three weeks, all the stuff I missed. So that's gonna be part one. And then part two, which is gonna go up later on Sunday night, me and Rossello doing this evergreen idea that we've always wanted to do. And this seemed like the perfect time because nothing's happening in basketball. So that's gonna be part two later tonight. Part one coming up. First, our friends from ProJax. What's up? All right, I'm taping this. It is Sunday afternoon Pacific time. And I'm gonna open a six -pack. There's a bunch of stories in sports and culture that happened over the last three weeks. I was just writing stuff down, things that would have been fun for podcast segments. I was just like, man, I wish I could have given my thoughts on that. Just gonna rip through them. So I have six and then maybe a couple bonus ones at the end. The first one, the biggest one, was the US women's soccer team, which lost today in penalty kicks to Sweden, scored zero goals in the last two games, scored one goal in the last three games, and that was off a corner kick. You could feel from the beginning that something was off with this team. It was all the ways. You knew in a checklist of what are the red flags? There were just red flags galore. And the only person who was really calling it out in time over and over again was Carli Lloyd, who was doing the Fox studio show. And she was the one person in the horror movie who knows the house is haunted. And everyone's like, shut up. You're not being patriotic. You just wish you were still on the team. She was right. She was right from the get -go. This team, you could see it before the Vietnam game when it was like, look at the new Nike suits. Look at these new suits. And they're all like styling as they head into the locker room. And they're running commercials. And every player has a commercial. There's players who've never done anything of that commercials. And the vibe was just off. They only beat Vietnam three -nothing in a bracket where goal differential was gonna be super -duper important. And that was a huge red flag. And we did the usual thing that we've been doing since 2019, 2015 of, oh, well, they almost scored a bunch of times. Oh, well, if that had gone in or some bad luck. There was just an arrogance to this team. Like they were carrying themselves like the defending champs, the same way like the Denver Nuggets would go into next NBA season. Like we're the champs. I was like, yeah, you are the champs because the season just happened. The World Cup happened four years ago. Everyone's four years older or wasn't on the team. And you could see they wanted to build the team instead of around the identity of, here are these new up and coming awesome stars that are gonna be in your life. They were really latching on to Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe. Alex Morgan's 34, Megan Rapinoe's 37. I think one of the differences between the discourse with women's sports and men's sports is that in men's sports, we grasp for angles. And if somebody is disappointing in some way, we really go nuts. Like think of how James Harden's been treated over the last 12 years. So he's one of the 35 best players ever and has taken just an incredible amount of shit. Oh my God, the playoffs, look at his game log. Oh, he choked again. Alex Morgan, who scored twice in her first two games in the World Cup in 2011, she scored once in 2015 in seven games. She scored six times in 2019, five against Thailand in a game that was 13 to nothing, one in the other six, and then scored nothing in the four games this time around. If you take away that Thailand game, she has scored two goals in the last 17 World Cup games. This is the striker. This is the one who's supposed to be the most dangerous player in the field, who's supposed to produce goals. And she hasn't produced goals since the mid 2010s on the national level. And yet it's Alex Morgan. She was supposed to be the next one. We got to keep propping her up and pretending she's a superstar. She's not a superstar. She's really honestly never been a superstar. She certainly hasn't been as impactful as somebody like Abby Wambach was. So you have the team built around her. She's got to play. They play her the entire game, game two, the entire game, game three. She plays like 95 minutes in this game today, and they don't score goals. And the announcers just won't talk about it. It's like being on an AYSO team that your kid's on, and the coach is playing somebody at striker, and everyone's like, why don't they play Sally at striker instead of the coach's daughter? It's like, oh, you know, the coach's daughter. She's got to play there. So you have that, and then you have Rapinoe, who's 37 years old, who's just, unfortunately, great career, legendary, true legend, huge big time player. And when you hit your late 30s in soccer, it's a wrap. She looked like Yudana Rapinoe, not big Rapinoe, and comes out for the last 25 minutes of this game and can't do anything, and then misses the penalty kick. That's the thing. If you're beholden to past performance, you can't expect to succeed in the moment. And I did feel like, what were this team's strengths? Speed. They had Sophia Smith, who really was bad the last three games on the left wing. Like, she just, she couldn't even connect passes. Trinity Rodman, who's a beast. Lynn Williams, who's super fast and athletic and had some really nice moments the last two games. And then Alyssa Thompson, who's the prodigy, who's the, you know, potential tiger or LeBron of this team. 18 years old, best high school player I've ever had. They won't even throw her out there. But this was not a team that could connect passes. They weren't, like, especially creative. The coaching was just bizarre, and we'll never see that guy again. But it was like, the one thing they did have was speed, especially the forwards, and they just threw that away. And Alex, you know, couldn't do anything. So now they're out. It's the most disappointing finish of the last 25 years for the women's team. And it reminds me in a lot of ways that 2004 Olympic basketball team that we had, the USA team. And I tweeted this, I think after the second game, because that was a team that was between eras, like this one was, where all the best players on that 2014, the ones in their primes, weren't that good, except for Duncan. And Duncan was completely banged up. He'd played so many NBA games the last couple of years. I think his knee was hurt. But, you know, it was Iverson and Marbury. The talent, it just was a between eras. And you had guys on the bench, like LeBron and Carmelo and Wade, who were four years away. Kobe wasn't on the team. And it just felt generationally, like we caught that team in the wrong time. The style was wrong. And we learned all these lessons and we moved on. 2008, we win. There's a documentary about it. But this team felt like it was between eras. The Alex Morgan, Rapinoe era, which was basically done. And then you have this era coming up with Rodman and Sophia Smith and Alyssa. And, you know, it's just four years from now, we'll probably be fine. But they need to re -imagine this. And I think if you're gonna learn any lesson from this, it doesn't matter what happened four years ago. It's the World Cup. It matters what's happening now. So that's one thing. Second thing. So Jaylen Brown gets this huge contract, $304 million. Some people seem surprised that it was that much money. Chris Ryan even took a shot at it when we did our library watchables. Hurt my feelings a tiny bit. Mainly because I didn't really have a comeback. Rosella did something on his podcast about how this actually makes sense. This amount of money, when you think of how the salary cap has climbed just since 2015, and it's gonna keep climbing. And there's this world you can go into where you think about just how much everything is gonna cost in the NBA four or five years from now, that Jaylen Brown at $70 million isn't actually gonna be that intimidating. The same way we feel about Tobias Harris for $40 million now, or Klay Thompson, $40 million now. Yeah, you don't really wanna pay $40 million for Klay Thompson, but you can survive it. And I think that's gonna be where the Celtics land with Jaylen. Here's why they had to do it. They're the favorites on FanDuel right now. They're plus 470. The thing that made them the most special and has made them the most special for the last five, six years is the Jaylen Brown -Jason Tatum combo. They've been incredibly successful. The team itself has made five conference finals in the last seven years. They came super close to making the finals last year. I have now gone into the what if zone with that Celtics team where what if Tatum doesn't hurt his ankle on the first play? Do we beat Miami? They were close is the point. And when you're that close, you can't fuck around. This is not Bradley Beal resigning with Washington for 50 million a year when everybody knows you can't get past the eight seed with Bradley Beal. This is different. You're trying to win a title. You're trying to keep all your optionality open. The thing that's a little scary about it, nobody seems to totally know if he wants to be in Boston. This is something we've discussed on this pod. It's been floating out there. The fact that he wasn't happy about landing in the Kevin Durant trade rumors a couple years ago. And just in general, where the league is now, where as Woj called it, the transfer portal, where people get their contract first and then they decide what they want to do. And I think for the Celtics, they know they bought themselves a year with Jalen and they are still one of the favorites to win the title. And a lot of it's going to depend on health and Porzingis. You could also, I don't want to make the case, but you might be able to make the case that Brown had a fucked up hand last year. Cause he did. Cause he sliced his hand open. It was bleeding even during the Philly series. And maybe that was why his ball handling went sideways. Listen, you got to do the contract. It just breaks your brain. I remember a million years ago, Sports Illustrated and Inside Sports say every year they would have like a salary issue. And they would talk about these guys are making $1 million a year. And it seemed like so much money. And now where we're heading with the money, plus the NBA is the meteorites deal. The moment any of these guys becomes unhappy, what do you do? Because you're paying Jalen, let's say you're paying him 55 million a year. Plus he is the trade kicker, which the team has to pay. Right? So if he decides after a year, you know what? I'm tired of being the scapegoat. Everybody loves Jason. I'm like the middle brother of this team. I want my own team. I want to go to Houston or Atlanta. You got to trade me. What are the Celtics going to do? On top of who would want out, you don't have a lot of options and you turn into what the situation Portland's in with Deem. And then on top of it, it's so much money. It's impossible to get any sort of a fair trade for the guy. So they had to do it. And optionality the that comes out of it is frightening. I remember in the early 2000s, when the first time the contracts kind of went nuts and you would see that people get signing like six -year, $100 million deals, seven -year, $110 million deals. And the Celtics really, really stupidly traded for Vin Baker. One of the worst trades of the last 30 years for Boston Sports. A trade so bad, you knew it instantaneously. And I wrote a piece that you can probably find somewhere in the ESPN archives about it, where I compared it to the end of Thelma Louise when Harvey Keitel is running toward the cliff trying to stop the car from going off the cliff. That's how I thought about the Vin Baker trade when it happened. Then it happens and you just had this salary albatross. It's a salary cap league. And you're like, wow, we just threw away 20 % of our salary cap on this trade. There's going to be a couple of those that are just franchise killers. And whether that leads to them bringing back the amnesty clause, who knows? I wish, I've made this, I've had this idea before. I wish that they had a rule in there that if you drafted a guy, every year that he stays in the team, you get rewarded in some way from a salary cap luxury tax type thing, right? So Jaylen was 2016 draft, this would be his eighth year. Maybe like after the seventh year, because that's usually like the third contract. The guy stays in the team, maybe each year after that, he doesn't count for 2 % of the luxury tax, up to like 30%, something like that. The point is the Warriors should be rewarded for keeping Draymond and Klay and Curry from a tax standpoint, that they were that smart to draft those guys, keep those guys together. They should be incentivized, the players, to want to stay with them because there's some luxury tax stuff that the team gets. And the team should want to be incentivized to take care of those guys because it's also beneficial to them. I just wish they figured out some version of that rule. Anyway, Jaylen was always signing for $304 million. Talk to me in a year, I'll keep my fingers crossed. Next thing, I missed the running back pity party. This was crazy. The running backs all got together and they were really upset about how much money they made. And I don't know what to tell you. There's too many running backs and not enough running back spots. And I don't know if you're trying to build a responsible salary cap team in a collectively bargained era, why would you spend $30 million over two years on a running back unless the running back was awesome? Nobody even wants to spend more than $11 million on running back. So I knew that this was crazy when Damien Harris, who was on the Patriots, who I thought was really good. He's maybe not an elite running back, but a good running back, right? Somebody that if he had been on the Chiefs, he easily could have started for the Chiefs. And he signed with the Bills for like one year, 2 million. And when that happened, combined with Pacheco on the Chiefs' seventh round pick, they won the Super Bowl with him. It's just, this position's devalued. I work on this player, I've been actually working on it the last couple of weeks where I try to rank the players for blue chippers, red chippers, pink chippers, honorable mention, and have this whole point system. And so quarterbacks, Mahomes, who's the alpha of that position, he's worth 10 points. And you could even see this in the point spread. If Mahomes gets hurt, the Chiefs are 10 points, nine points, whatever, less than what they would be as a favorite. They'd switch to an underdog. And you go on down the line. Jalen Hurts, I had him as an eight. I had Joe Burrow as a nine. And you go on, you keep going down, and it's like, Geno Smith's probably a two. But then you look at some of the other positions and you have to value them the same way the salary cap values them and teams value them. Guards, they aren't worth that much. Running backs, sorry, they're not worth that much. My top running back was three points because ultimately running backs don't really matter that much. In the last like five, six years, I would say Derrick Henry was the only running back that you could definitively say, this guy almost won the Super Bowl. Like he was that good. Other than that, you know, it's plug and play, quarterbacks, it's receivers. It's much harder to find the number one receiver. Every team needs one. It's much more tangible if you don't have the number one receiver. And it's much easier to just kind of scrap together the running back position. And yet people went nuts about this. We ironically had this in the NBA with centers. You know, Vucevic, who's a really good offensive player, he signed for 60 million for three years, 20 million a year. And Jaylen Brown's going to make $52 million a year. Is Jaylen Brown two and a half times better than Vucevic? No, it's just, he plays a way more important position. You can only play one center at a time. You can patch together the center position. You could have like Isaiah Hartenstein for $8 million. You could, you know, get Robert Williams for 16. You don't need to spend what Phoenix did on Eaton where they're paying $8 and $30 million a year at center. And you don't really need to do that. You kind of feel obligated if you don't want to lose the asset. But I think the NBA is going to go this way eventually where unless it is Jokic or Embiid, the center or Bam Adebayo, it's a bonus. You could argue that was already an overpay. They gave him a huge extension. The Lakers just gave Anthony Davis $60 million a year as an extension. I would argue that's a little frightening. I feel like you could patch together the center position. What really matters in basketball is having the creator. And this was the argument five years ago with Luka versus Eaton for the number one pick. And I made this argument. It was like, go look at who wins the NBA title every year. It's always the people who have the creator. There's somebody who's on the perimeter of the ball in their hands. Even Jokic, who wins the title this year, he was a creator. He's not a typical center, right? He's basically their point guard on offense who could post up. So this happened in the NBA. Nobody went nuts. And this is happening in football. And is this where football is. If you want to make the most amount of money playing in the NFL, I don't know why you would be a running back. I would be a cornerback. I would be a wide receiver. I'd be an edge rusher. But if you're a running back, you know your shelf life's probably like five, six years. You know the money is not totally gonna be there. Now they're in this, like you have people like JK Dobbins, like, I might hold out. It's like, really? You didn't barely even play in the field. Barkley said he was gonna hold out. And then, you know, probably looked at it. And the money for Barkley is like 10, 11 million. That's unfortunately the market. So you can't fix this. They collectively bargained it. And until we get to the next CBA, I don't know how you fix it. I thought it was really weird. It felt like people had nothing to talk about. And it was like, ah, let's feel bad for running backs. All right, let's take a break. And then I'm gonna finish the rest of the six pack. All right, picking up on the six pack. We're gonna talk a little more football. I talked about the running back pity party. This is a different kind of party. The Jets optimism, which has just been stunning to me over the course of July. I have Jets fans in my life. These are people that usually have no hope and are very reminiscent of the pre -2004 Red Sox fans, just assuming the worst at all times. Why does God hate us? All that stuff. And now they have this crazy optimism based on the fact that they brought in Aaron Rodgers, who I did not think was very good last year, just throwing that out there. I wouldn't say he was bad, but for Rodgers, he was bad. I mean, we thought Rodgers was, he was the reigning MVP and we thought he was still one of the five or six most impactful players in the league. And I don't wanna read stats to you for the next six minutes, but deep balls, he was bad. Turnovers, he was bad. Leadership, he was bad. And the case for Rodgers coming back would be, well, he's gonna be rejuvenated. The Jets, New York City. This is his team. He got away from Green Bay. He's got Hackett back. I get it, but he's also at an age where we've really only seen Tom Brady succeed at a high, high level at the age that Rodgers is at. I was trying to figure it out. I have my QB ratings and I had, you know, the top tier is Mahomes and Burrow and Allen and Herbert and Hertz. Those have to be the top five. Then it drops off and it's Lamar Jackson and Lawrence. And then Rodgers, probably a hair underneath him with a chance to play himself up with those guys. But from what we saw last year, I'm not ready to put him there. So he's the 10th best quarterback in the league, probably. 10th or ninth best quarterback in the league, probably. Well, they have no offensive line. And I don't understand why people keep glossing over this where it's like, hey, Rodgers and Garrett Wilson, he's one of the best receivers in the league and Breece Hall's going to come back and the defense is really good. And it's like, yeah, the offensive line is terrible. Beckton and Dwayne Brown, sure tackles again. And then you have Robert Salah as the coach, who I cannot say I thought that Jets were crisply coached last year. Whatever he was doing with Zach Wilson was insane. No idea if that guy's even a decent coach. So I'm already worried about your offensive line, the age of your quarterback, and the competency of your coach. And that's before we get into the hard knocks curse, because for some reason they're doing hard knocks, the incredible Super Bowl hype already. And then we have the schedule, which is the AFC East has just got screwed by the schedules this year. The Jets, just for quarterbacks in 17 games, they got to play Josh Allen twice, they got to play Mahomes, Herbert, Hertz, Dak Prescott, and Deshaun Watson. And then they also have to play Miami twice. We'll see what we get out of two this year. And then a really good Pats defense. And then Denver, who knows, they might be rejuvenated. So Danny Dimes, they have to play him. It is a brutal schedule, so you have that. And then on top of everything else, you're the Jets. I was there with the Red Sox before 2004, and this is probably just as bad, where you just think the worst possible things can happen is all the time. You're not allowed to have optimism when you're Jets fans. You can be cautiously optimistic. There was an entire Curb Your Enthusiasm episode once, season 10, episode seven, about being a Jets fan. And it was called, I think, the ugly section. Nick Kroll was the maitre d'. And part of the episode was about, he would put these people in different sections of the restaurant, depending on how attractive they were. But there was this other plot, Larry's buddy who loved the Jets, kills himself. And Larry becomes convinced it was because of the Jets, that the Jets killed his friend. This was only a couple of years ago. So now they get Aaron Rodgers, and everything's good. And they're gonna win the Super Bowl. I don't see it, guys. I don't wanna step on my football stuff too much, but I'd be shocked. And Lombardi points out the defense that everybody's ready to compare to the 85 Bears. Lombardi said they had two turnovers over the last eight games last season. So that means something too. I am dubious, to say the least. If you're gonna tell me a tortured franchise actually turns it around this year, I want a tortured franchise that doesn't have expectations. Because the Lions are another one. Everybody's ready to put them in the Super Bowl or close. And the only case for them is just pretty explosive offense. They couldn't stop anybody last year. And the NFC is terrible. But that's another one where is that a fan base that should be super excited and have a ton of hype? The one that's kind of lurking that fits in this group is the Browns. Because the Browns are actually super talented. They're in a winnable division. Burroughs already hurt. And I think they're four to one to win the AFC North on FanDuel, something like that. Their over -under is, I think it climbed up.
A highlight from The No Interruptions Podcast - TikTok Ban Debate
"There are more identity threats than you realize, even if you monitor your credit, only a little personal info needs to leak out, like your social security number or your password, for you to end up underwater.

This week's No Interruptions podcast is about TikTok, big news this week out of South Carolina. As you know, I used to host the Clemson football Tiger Tailgate show, so I know Clemson University quite well, and Clemson University banned TikTok from its internal servers. I keep wondering how this actually is going to look like. What does a TikTok ban look like? Brad Palumbo is editor -in -chief and co -founder of Based Politics, which I am loving. I'm enjoying it very, very much. Brad is a libertarian conservative journalist. You've probably seen his work on The Washington Examiner, The New York Post, Newsweek, maybe seen him on TV. Brad, it's great having you on the show. Daniel Greenfield, who's an investigative reporter and journalist at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, covering everything from the Left's war on America to terrorism abroad. He writes for front -page magazine frontpagemag .com, has his own blog as well. Daniel, thanks very much for joining us as well. Let's start with you. I'm struggling with understanding, pragmatically speaking, how a TikTok ban works, but I've read your work. I've read some of your background. Tell me a little bit about why you think we should ban TikTok here in America. The simple answer is that TikTok is a whole lot like Facebook and big tech companies, except it's much more abusive and it's run by the Chinese Communist Party. We know this from former executives with Bytedance, which is TikTok's parent company. We know that there's a unit called the committee within Bytedance. We know that even though TikTok executives repeatedly come to Congress and say that all the data stays in America, that it's monitored by American teams, that actually everything is seen in China. That's a quote. There's some backdoor access to user data in almost all of them. Furthermore, TikTok's people have the ability in China to monitor individual Americans, get their location, find out what they're doing. Your smartphone in general is eavesdropping device that is monitoring you all the time. With TikTok, your smartphone is a monitoring device that goes directly to China. And this is not just happening to adults who can make decisions. TikTok aggressively targets children and the results are destructive. First of all, it means that China has a direct pipeline to what your children are doing. And TikTok is even more destructive than ordinary social media. We've seen a number of American children actually die because of TikTok challenges that were pushed to them. Last year, there was a lawsuit in which an eight and nine -year -old girl died of self -strangulation after TikTok's algorithm pushed a blackout challenge for them in which they were encouraged to strangle themselves with belts per string and twist ties until they actually passed out and eventually died. This is something that China does not allow within its own borders. Bytedance's version of TikTok in China is closely regulated. It is not allowed to promote any kind of destructive behaviors. Within America, however, they can promote the most destructive behaviors possible, including those that have killed about five American children thus far. TikTok spies on Americans. It is a direct pipeline to the Chinese Communist Party and it is killing American children. The argument for banning it is pretty straightforward. All right, Brad Palumbo, Daniel makes some compelling arguments in favor of banning TikTok. I know you've certainly embraced the digital space. I've become a big fan of Based Politics. Everybody I've recommended on my show, based -politics .com. As somebody who really appreciates that space, you have argued against banning TikTok and you wrote a very powerful argument back in March at the Washington Examiner, all the reasons why the U .S. should not ban TikTok. Go ahead and why don't you respond to the arguments that Daniel laid out and explain why you disagree with the idea of a TikTok ban in the United States.

"AP's sports and Mike Reeves, it was a frantic finish at the Indianapolis 500, our Tom McKay reports. Josef Newgarden used a one lap shootout to grab the lead from 2022 champ Marcus Ericsson to win the Indy 500. You know, I wasn't looking to take anyone else out of the race, but I was going to put my car on the line to win. And I was either going to win the race or I was going to end up in the wall. Newgarden driving for team owner Roger Penske survived a chaotic final 40 miles, which saw the race stop three times for Rex. Major League Baseball the rays win a wild one over the Dodgers in Tampa Bay, correspondent Steve Carney provides the details. The Tampa Bay Rays used a 7th inning RBI ground out by wander Franco to break a ten ten tie and defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11 to ten. Both starters got hit around as Gavin stone allowed 7 runs in two innings of work, while Josh Fleming allowed ten runs in 6 innings, including 5 home runs, Tampa Bay finishes at ten game home stands 7 and three, while the Dodgers complete their longest road trip of 2023 with a four and 6 Mark. The Yankees used a 7 run third inning to defeat the Padres ten to 7, Aaron judge and Harrison Bader hit home runs to support winning pitcher Garrett Cole, who is now 6 and zero. This was a good team win today for sure. I mean, being able to kind of subdue them through the middle innings and keep the momentum.

James Lindsay: Marxist Tactics Exposed
"They know there's legitimate issues around civil rights and especially that there have been in the past So they hide in those things as radical splinter cells And then they erupt out these very intentional deliberate tactics But the key point of the lecture I gave the parliament in Europe was that when we look at western Marxism we have to look at Marxism as a system that attacks civilizations or societies And it's going to find where it can get in So in peasant societies like you had in Russia in 1917 and China like you had in 1949 it can get in through class It can work its way in through class division But in the west the marxists of the 20th century admitted it won't get in through class in America in Western Europe because we have class mobility If you work your ass off you can rise up in the structure as the marxists themselves said we see the capitalism allows people to build a better life that stabilizes the working class so they won't be a revolutionary class So they have to use the same motif but they put it in a different location So I said you don't want to think of it like with animals like with genus versus species The genus is cats in this case it's Marxism but if you think of genus as cats you got tigers you got lions you got house cats you got bobcats You got pumas They're all different kinds of cats but they're all still cats Here Marxism is one type of attack on a civilization One type of modality to take over sees control of the means of production and ruinous society And you've got class based Marxism which is classical Marxism You've got race based Marxism which is critical race theory You've got what's considered normal based Marxism and that's queer theory and the gender theory You've got based on men and women patriarchy or whatever you want to call it you got Marxist feminism It's the exact same attacks the exact same structure the exact same goals and the goal is actually just to seize power In whatever they want to do after they get power is what we're all going to get which looks a lot like eating bugs and living in pods
"tigers" Discussed on Leadership and Loyalty
"And they concluded that the main driver of that was lack of social support. Yeah. So if you can get people to social support, then you can avoid a lot of significant downstream health complications just by giving that social support. So we know all these things matter. And yet we completely ignore them in our healthcare environment. Just having plants around, we know has a profound impact trees and air and plants and water. And yet we don't emphasize those things and exposure to those things in healthcare. So these are the changes that we need to make. These are these are big shifts and changes we have to absolutely have to introduce. Yeah, there's a big movement in Japan around forest painted forest bathing, which is simply going out and being around trees. And because and again, scientifically proven, now it's no longer, oh, that's a bit whoo whoo. It's science that has a direct impact on your body on your immune system and even better if you can do it in bare feet because then you're grounded as well. Correct. And the benefits to your immune system are vast, but we live in concrete buildings. I do. Living concrete buildings are sitting in our ass and we're, you know, we're on Zoom or we're in front of our computer, we're not going out and doing manual labor. And we think we've done well if we went for a walk around the block. As opposed to we didn't talk to our neighbors, you know, I was walking down my hallway here in New York yesterday and I had a lady that I was walking behind and we proceeded to walk because I have a fairly long hallway. Continue walking. She looked back and thought I was perhaps following her. It just happened to be that we actually lived across the hallway from each other. And that was the first time we were acknowledging each other's existence. So our relationships and our sense of community and how close we are with each other is completely evaporated and vanished. We don't even know who's living beside us. And so all these incredibly profound important things for our health are absent. And so utilizing tools and technology that we are utilizing to give our patients a sense of closeness and community with their care providers. We know is going to have a profound impact. Yeah, and it's vitally vitally important. I was flying to Dallas last week. And I was sitting next to somebody, you know, and as you do in a plane and you're like, you know, most of the times we fly, we don't even talk to the other person. I mean, how could you be any closer that you're so close is bloody uncomfortable? And we don't talk to that person. You know, but I'm sitting next to a lady who is a Chinese lady. Who is 80 two years old and next to her is a guy who's 57 years old. Yes, I know their ages. And finding out where they were from and how they were brought up and, you know, talking about and we all discovered all these wonderful things that we had in common. Three of us, three different age brackets, all having a conversation all been married to people who were not our own people, all cross marriages, and I said, this is the, this is the UN right here in this seat. But we wouldn't have known that. You know, if we had just been the way we've been so conditioned to isolate ourselves and yet we so deeply crave to connect and that so much of our personal responsibility in our healthcare requires us to reach out and connect with other people, but we're all been trained to believe that if we do that, we're going to get rejected. Well, you might, but you'll also might get accepted and you might have a wonderful conversation. This 82 year old lady Sutton next to me said, this is the best conversation I've had in ten years. Right? Yeah. And we're talking about music. We're talking about politics. We're talking about culture. We're talking about religion. In this flight, we have an all those conversations. I mean, just think about that. And let's left such an impression on you. You're talking about it today, and I've had multiple of those myself or I can remember this really cute, older they call her the husband of dozed off and he was sleeping and he said, she goes, it's still love each other today. All this all 30 years of 40 years, whatever it was that they had been married. And it was just an adorable and we talked about all manner of their relationships. And the conversation that we had in that hour so that we were in the plane together. Enriched my life. And guess what? It actually contributed to my well-being and so I think these things. Is. Like it would be wonderful if there was a system and I know that these systems are coming. But if there was a system in that moment, you could look at your watch or your phone or whatever it says, your immune system just went up. Right? Your immunity just went up. And you go, wow, I'm just sitting there on the plane. I didn't take any meds. I didn't take any supplements. Oh, it was connection. Your immune system, your blood pressure just went down. Your serotonin levels went up. Your dopamine levels just went up. Your cortisol levels just went down. Like all those things would change. And it's coming. I know that technologies were on the brink of that, which is wonderful, but we have to grasp that now as we're moving towards a greater healthcare crisis that is, where do you see that? I mean, as we get towards the end here, tell me where you see all that going when we look at the potential, not crisis, but collapse of the American healthcare system. Yeah, it's truly frightening, unfortunately, the numbers are not encouraging when we look at it. And I think you call it sort of this cabal of psychosis or whatever language you use to describe the situation that we're in. There isn't, look, I'm a I like innovation technology that's kind of where I've spent my career. And so I was believed that human ingenuity has capacity to solve a lot of the problems that we face. But the system, the food system that we've created is a huge intractable problem. And I'm not sure there's any easy answer for that. The profit taking profit making system in healthcare that we've created is a huge intractable problem. But I do think there is enormous opportunity in innovation and technology from entrepreneurs that can give us tools, capabilities, to start to take ownership of our own health.
"tigers" Discussed on Leadership and Loyalty
"Again, we can wave the magic wand and go, okay, well, now everybody's got the information they can do better. But they're not doing that. They're not and the information's not new. That you're eating out of stress and you're eating processed foods and you really shouldn't be because that shit's killing you. And you've got a system that's not healthcare but sick care all right was still at the same place of how do we get people to pay attention because. From my point of view and we can look at this at one or two ways, which is how do we get billed pay attention, but the other side of it is from my point of view is I have always said this about life. No one's coming to rescue you. No one. And I think that in a lot of ways, people think that the American healthcare system is going to come and rescue them. It's not, it might, if you're a billionaire, it might even if you're reasonably if you're quite well off. But everybody's one sickness away from bankruptcy in the United States, one serious sickness. So there is the political agenda and then there's the personal accountability. And both of those things combined are. Devastating. So we obviously, in the short term, can't do much about the political agenda, but we can do something about the accountability. How do we get the average person, the average people who work for me who are in my down line who are, you know, who answer to me, you answer to my the leaders inside of my organization, how do I get them to take responsibility because we know if you look at the pictures of beaches in the 70s versus beaches today, obesity is everywhere. So what do we do? Yeah. Look, I think personal accountability. Personal accountability ultimately is the short term answer and unfortunately we still face this challenge where far too many aren't seeing the imminent threat to themselves that this really is every time you go and indulge in the donuts or whatever you're eating, the crappy food constantly around it. You know, I walk into my grocery store and immediately in the aisles right beside the counter is the chocolate bars on the muffins and the poison that sitting there constantly. So look, I think as a society, we need to make a decision about elevating the importance of getting the poisons out of our system for the first place. For too many of our foods are filled with things that are really quite damaging to us and we do have the education, the awareness, the information, to be able to start to advocate for removing some of these poisons from our environments. I think the leadership that is a responsible for helping guide our policy making really needs to take some of these issues extremely seriously. I've been talking about the amount of excessive sugar in our diets. And we have all the tools to solve for that. We can remove and start to reduce, why do we label cigarettes with these warning labels, let's say this is poison that you're adjusting. But we can't do the same for things like sugar and Coca-Cola were a single bottle of Coca-Cola. You're adjusting, you know, doesn't the tablespoons of sugar, we can certainly make those types of decisions and changes. But ultimately, it's about right there. You're being rational and logical. Yeah. And I'm sorry, but that's where the whole thing falls apart because that's not how it works. The government is in bed with the sugar industry with the corn industry. It's making lots of money through that. Those companies are making lots of money. They are lobbying to create laws. So the average person in the street feels powerless and even though they might be aware they're still feeling the day to today stress and going, but I just feel like I need a donut because I'm trying to ease some of my emotional pain. So that's what I'm saying about where we started right at the beginning is that we're in this dichotomy this internal struggle of knowing something's bad but we're in a system that seems like people can't get out of it. I know I want to be clear. I know that what you're doing with men is offering people a way to create an accountability system. And I think that that's probably the most important thing here is that people have to it's like I trained lifting weights and doing other sports martial arts boxing and artists. And I did that for so, so long nothing needed to motivate me. I could get out of bed at 5 o'clock in the morning and go do that, Jim. But as I've gotten older, I need more motivation to go do it. And ultimately I need a partner. I need an accountability partner who's going to meet me there that I don't want to let down and who doesn't want to let me down who's going to do that. And it seems like that's what you're trying to do with Mendes to have people feel like because everybody feels so isolated. Am I misunderstanding? Is that a big part of it? You're absolutely right. So one of the things that we recognize is the intractable problem that you're talking about, which is, you know, how do you, how do you get people actually motivated? And so one of the, in our business model, what we recognize was when someone's been through a really challenging health and I'll give you my brother as an example, my brother, my oldest brother, was neglecting his health. He wasn't exercising. He was eating crappy food. And lo and behold, he got sick, right? So he had a gallbladder removed. Oh, boy, was he a different person the next day? Right after having his gallbladder removed all of a sudden, the gym became important and eating healthy became important and all that kind of stuff. Unfortunately, human nature is that until it impacts us personally in an embarrassing way a lot of times, we don't take it seriously. So in our model and in our environment, what we do is when the person is having an acute event, we recognize that as an opportunity to create profound lifestyle changes in that person. And so that's where we take over and we create lasting behavioral changes in that patient. So they don't end up back in the hospital. Now that doesn't solve for not getting in the hospital in the first place. No. And so, you know, that's where, you know, lots and lots of incentives for people to have an accountability partner. I think could be incredibly valuable. You know, what gets me to sign up for a gym partner or a trainer that really then holds me to that responsibility. That is really, I think part of the key to unlocking all this and how do we make that an affordable mechanism where there is someone that can just really shepherd you, push you, encourage you. I think that can lock a lot of value in society. Yeah, I mean, I think that I know this, you know, we talk about healthcare crisis, but we have a loneliness crisis. Which is also affecting healthcare. We know that loneliness is impacting people's immune systems to the level of 15 cigarettes a day. I mean, that's pretty serious. I can't imagine smoking 15 cigarettes a day, what the damage would be from that. But learning that loneliness is the same level of impact is pretty profound for most people. So even having, you know, I know because I'm on the psychology side of it. I know there are people who go to the doctor because they get to see somebody. There's just some kind of interaction that is so important to human beings. We need a community. We need to connect. And I think that many people are sick because they unconsciously there's nothing conscious about it. But unconsciously, if I'm sick, I have relationships. I have people who are around me. I got doctors that got nurses who got people who are trying to take care of me. And so, you know, psychological drivers there. And so what I like about what you're doing with men is there's a psychological community of people who are helping me to stay well rather than waiting for me to get sick to be my community. So you have a community of wellness as a, as opposed to a community of sick care, is that correct? I got that right now. You're absolutely like, there's a whole body of science around patient activation in the world of acute care and lifting patient activation actually has profound impacts on the overall outcomes of health. It's nature as closeness to family. It's access to people. There's a study done out of NYU langone that looked at the incidence rate of re ambitions of patients for post having surgery because a lot of the surgeries are moving to outpatient surgery.

"Hi, guys. My name is Isaiah. I'm sorry. I'm the CEO cofounder of a company life sciences company here in New York called mend. Today we're going to talk about the unsustainable healthcare crisis that we're in and what we can do about it. We're going to talk about the fact that we have the highest healthcare costs and we're sick and getting sicker and how it can reduce our reliance and reliance on politicians and government and take more ownership of our health ourselves. Welcome back to our delicious conversation with Asia said, he is the cofounder of men to digital health and neutrophil company who partners with pro sports teams multiple high profile proposed teams, the U.S. Military and leading doctors and hospitals across the U.S. in really confronting the medical crisis that we're already in and the implications of what is going to happen as we move forward. In the past, our part one of the show we talked about some of those implications, including that 50% of doctors are going to be on that 50 going to be on the retirement age of 65 very, very soon, and we're going to have a massive shortage of doctors that nurses are leaving the industry entirely due to burnout 30% of them are walking away and just the whole system is under so much pressure and at the same time it's because we have a sick care system rather than a healthcare system and his company and his organization are doing a lot to really hold those accountable to that to our own health and in part one we talked about how there's no shortage of knowledge. We all know what we're supposed to do yet we're not doing it. So that's where I want to come back to it. So why are from all of your research? Why are we as sick as we are today? I mean, we talked about the glycemic levels. We've talked about. Manufactured food that's not whole and how that impacts us. But why do you see what's really showing up about why we're as sick as we are today? And what can we immediately do about it? Like for my listener yeah, I mean, I think if you zoom out and look at kind of human history through sort of an evolutionary time scale, you'll find something very striking and that is that the vast majority of our time, you know, maybe 99% of our history as a species was spent as hunter gatherers in a kind of a very consistent environment that environment meant that we had to hunt and gather that's how we ate. We buries and we eat whole foods and nuts and so on and so forth and occasionally when we had a kill, we would eat eat game and so our lives consisted of a very consistent environment with whole foods and then on comes sort of the agricultural revolution and then we start to kind of put food under lock and key and then try to transform the nature of food in our relationship with food. And also change the environments around us quite dramatically where instead of in a prior environment where the source of stress might have been the saber toothed Tiger, the source of stress now has bills or the boss that I don't like at work or the bad sort of news that I'm reading on the Internet. And so the convergence of these factors where we completely fundamentally change the food that we eat from eating whole foods to highly highly manufactured foods that have quite frankly very low nutritive value or nutrient nutrient poor in terms of quality and actually contain things that are very harmful to us. So that's kind of the primary drivers that the nature of our food fundamentally change and to change to something that's very, very unhealthy for us. The second thing is we went from being active and outdoors to being inactive and indoors doing what you and I are doing right now, which is sitting for a long hours indoors and taking our snacks in between our meetings. And then the third, I think, is that the nature of stress has changed. It's a very different type of stress. It's omnipresent. It's coming at us from multiple angles and we converge all of those into a single, you know, sort of a set of pressures that is on our biology. It's not hard to imagine why disease would arise. So I think it's a combination of things that we have to be very mindful of that in a through an evolutionary time scale and lens. Our bodies just haven't had a time to adjust. This has happened in a nanosecond in a fraction of a fraction of a second. And so our systems are designed to deal with the environments in a radically changed around us. So of course, you know, I think one of the things you mentioned that I think is really important that we forget, we have this idea of the sabertooth Tiger and that is mentioned in everybody's lexicon of language around stress, but the modern saber Tiger, particularly as we record this, is the potential of debt on the potential of homelessness. As you said, it's omnipresent and on top of that, you've got Fox News and SM MSNBC and CNN and everybody is throwing all about all these things. I had a constantly around stressor. It's what I talked about when I said, I asked you about the meaning of your life. I mean, everything has meaning and yet nothing has any bloody meaning, but at the level of cortisol and stress on the body, we're in this constant state of stress and we know you know I know that people eat to, as a stress relief because it is a drug that release of dopamine as we have a sugars or our favorite foods, that is also what combating stress with something that is going to kill us. And is killing us. Let me rephrase that that it is actually killing us. So when it comes to all that,

"It's tough to say. Torkelson so far, you know, the numbers in spring training don't jump off the page, but the underlying metrics, he has, I think, tin balls of over a hundred mile an hour exit velocity and those are only the ones that have been played in stat cas ballparks. So he's hitting the ball hard. He seems to be having good at bats. I still like to see the guy just turn on a fastball and crush it out of the park. But that time or two at some point. Yeah. We should talk about the other hopefully hitting cornerstone of the tigers, Riley green, who had a less discouraging rookie season, and is being bandied about as a possible breakout hitter, dense and borsky included him on his recent list of breakout candidates, and he wrote no player in 2022 underperformed his expected walk strikeout in home run stats, which are derived from statcast and plate discipline data more than green did. So are you buying the breakout for Riley green? What does he have to do other than perhaps have some let go in his favorite more often? Yeah, I thought those were some really good points from Dan and I didn't previously realize the walk to strikeout misfortune that happened to Riley. I think if you look at just the sheer surface numbers, you look at his rookie years like, oh, he was okay. I think rightly green's a really, really talented player, and I think he showed a lot of good things in the major leagues last year. He had a 430 foot Homer off Shohei Ohtani, it'll walk off Homer to the shrubs and comerica park. He played really good defense and made a lot of highlight reel catches. He's been viewed as a very advanced hitter throughout the time in the minor leagues. There's some swing and miss in his game, but he can use all fields. He also has good raw power. He's also a very intuitive hitter. I think I totally buy Riley green still having star potential in this league. If anything, in addition to good luck, it's elevating the ball a little bit more. His launch angle was oddly low, his ground ball rate was, I think, 56.8% last year. I'm not sure exactly what was causing that. AJ Hinch's theorized a lot of it could just simply pitch selection. I would not be shocked at all if Riley green turns into a breakout performer this year. Speaking of guys with some swing and missing their game, eh? Eh? I wonder where this might be going. Well, we can't we can't very well not talk about Javier Baez, who was one of the big free agent editions before last season. Obviously a guy who we've all watched a lot and have seen the swing and the mist, but also some really spectacular home runs and incredible glove work and he had a pretty disappointing year at the plate, his habit pretty well collapsed from 2021, but this is also a version of Baez that we have seen and that I think a lot of people wondered if we would see. So is there any adjustment that he could be making? And do you think there's any chance that he exercises his opt out after this season? With javi, I think Tiger's knew what they were signing up for. A lot of bad and also a lot of good, the problem last year is there wasn't as much of that good hobby, at least it sure didn't seem like it. And it didn't help that he got off to a very, very poor start, may was one of the worst months of his entire career. And I think that just set kind of a negative tone for the year for hobbies perception with a new fan base. If you look a little deeper into the numbers after I think mid June, he ranked 8th among MLB shortstops in WRC plus. So from June on, he was more like the hobby Baez, we are accustomed to see. He also made a lot of throwing errors at shortstop, led the league in errors that is a little bit concerning, but seems easily correctable. I know we did do a lot of work on his footwork and his throwing this off season wouldn't be shocked that error total comes down a little bit at the plate. I think it's a little naive to expect any major adjustments from javi. I think javi is going to be obvious and I think he's still going to chase sliders down and away. It's actually kind of crazy when you look at the numbers and really strike out rate declined last year. Actually pretty precipitously from 2022. But he's still going to chase. He's still going to strike out. I think the question is, can we see a little bit more of that good hobby? Again, if you take away May of last year, the season was actually more in line with career norms from Javier Baez. So I wouldn't be shocked if his performance ticks up a little bit this year. I think the real question is, how is this guy going to age into his 30s? He has an opt out, but if he doesn't exercise, the tigers are going to have him for 5 more seasons. And my understanding has always been the Tiger's got him largely because they were willing to give him an initial 6 years to pay him into his 30s, whereas other teams were a little bit hesitant of that. So I think bias would have to have a really, really great year to even consider exercising that opt out. I just have a hard time seeing him making more on the open market than he's already under contract to make. Yeah, by baseball reference where Javier Baez was the most valuable Tiger in 2022, which definitely says more about the other tigers and it does about bias, but I think according to fed grass where only tarik skubal led Baez and we know what happened to him at the end of the season. So yeah, it was that kind of year. And it was that kind of year when it came to the other tigers major Marquis off season edition too, right Eduardo Rodriguez, who I guess kind of gets an incomplete grade for the season because of personal issues that caused him to miss a significant amount of times. So what's the referendum on how he did when he was actually on the field and what the outlook is for him? Very weird year for Eduardo again personal issues caused him to miss about two months in the middle of the summer and it was marital and matter, but we never really found out a lot about what was actually going on. There was a time when he was not in communication with the team and I don't think that was great for his relationship with the club, but the good news is he came back after missing two months in the middle of the season and they ramped them up and then toward the end of the year he was he looks like Eduardo roger he is. I think what we've learned about this guy in Detroit is that he's very steady and very reliable in the mound. I don't know if he'll get back to 2019 Cy Young contender Eduardo Rodriguez, but I think this is the guy you can hand the ball and expect 6 strong innings from almost every time out. I think he's a really tends to tends to pound the strike zone tends to induce weak contact. He can miss some bats when he needs to. I think he still has the makings of a frontline starter. Again, I don't know if he's in quote unquote ace if he's really an elite pitcher, but I think he's a really good pitcher and we've almost learned that more from the time Eduardo has missed seeing how easily he seems to just come back right into the swing of things and be ready to take the ball and throw.

"Guys. All right, let's take one more quick break and then we'll talk to Cody Stephen Hagen of the athletic about the Detroit tigers who have thought that a whole lot of fun lately, but this segment of the fun I promise. I'll be right back. Are we any closer to life all right, we are back and it's time to talk about the Detroit tigers with Cody Stephen Hagan who covers the tigers for the athletic and also hosts the turning the corner podcast about the tigers, Cody. Welcome to the show. Yeah, absolutely. Thanks for having me. Speaking of turning the corner, that was supposed to happen already as I recall. Right. That didn't happen. We start some of these previous by asking what went wrong for a team the previous year, maybe with the tigers I can ask whether anything went right. Did anything go right in 2022 for the Detroit tigers? It was about to say what went wrong. It's an easy answer. The answer is everything. That's the rest of this podcast. So yeah. The abridged version. Yeah, there was definitely a time as we have to rename our podcast now because turning the corners, I don't know that that's actually going to happen. No, that's the pessimistic view. And at the very least, turning the corner is going to happen on an altered trajectory. But yeah, very few things went right from injuries to underperformance to I guess the other way to view it sometimes I wonder is 2022, the best thing that could have possibly happened to the Detroit tigers in the weirdest sense because I yeah, right? I think they had some things going for him. They spent some money thinking they were close to competing when in reality they just weren't. And I think their evaluations of some internal players like candelario were off. I think their view of their own farm system was maybe not necessarily in line with the rest of the league and I think now a new front office with all of you a fire. It's got Harris leading the charge. I think the infrastructure is being revamped pretty drastically and unfortunately, this means the timeline. Like I said, is altered. But I think the overall health of the organization has a chance to improve a lot here in just the next couple of years. Yeah, so it's been a talking point really since tanking started in earnest, the modern sort of Astros slash cub style tanking whether eventually a team that tanked would not emerge from the tank as a contender. I don't know whether you can say that the tigers tanked. I mean, they just rebuilt teams have always rebuilt. They were good for a while, and then they got pad, and they tried to get good again. It didn't work, right? So I think people were thinking, oh, well, maybe the Phillies are the first team that just aren't going to pull out of it. And then they kind of did, right? They just squeaked into the playoffs and then they made it real run and they're still contenders. So I guess you could say that the tigers in this era are looking like the first team that really did fail to make it and are we now in a re rebuild officially, is this still part of the same rebuild? Is it a fresh start? Is it a continuation, I guess, can you draw a clear line there between eras? Well, I think you make a really good point there being and it's not something that gets talked about a lot. Unfortunately, no one really wants to read a book about the rebuild that didn't work. But I think the tigers very much were following the basis of the cubs Astros model. And it is a reminder that if you don't get everything right or if you don't get very lucky in a select few cases that it's not a foolproof plan to work, especially when multiple teams throughout the league are following a very similar approach. The question about how do we label this now? I think is something I'm still trying to answer a little bit. Scott Harris and the new front office has been very averse to coming anywhere close to uttering the word rebuild again. I think that's because that's the last thing that Tiger's fan base wants to hear, but saying I've adopted throughout the past few years as teams tell you a lot more what they think with their actions than their words. And if you look at how the tigers approach this off season, they were not active in free agency. They did make what could turn out to be some shrewd moves and they really targeted controllable young position players. Guys who aren't sheer prospects. Guys who are major league ready or close to the major leagues at least in the case of Justin Henry and Lloyd from the braves. So what I see is kind of a continuation of this rebuild a little bit of a reboot of the rebuild. If you want to call it rebuild two, I don't think that's entirely inaccurate. I would guess the hope is this isn't another 5 to 7 year process, but I think it is a multiple year process before this organization looks like Scott Harris wants it to. Three build remix. I think you got the branding. I like that. Coming soon to Detroit. Well, and it's always strange to talk about these because, you know, I don't mean to suggest that last year wasn't bad for the tigers and for their fans, but they do have a number of young guys whose careers are far from over, or at least we hope they are. So maybe we can start with some of them and try to find a way to, if not some optimism, at least a path forward for Detroit that doesn't involve them tearing the whole thing down again. And I think that some of that starts with Spencer torkelson, who, you know, we were all a little surprised by this, right? When he was in college, he was just a very productive, very good hitter, one of the better college hitters we've seen in the last decade, and his rookie season did not go well. So what adjustments are they hoping he will make to make himself, gosh, a league average player would be good at this point, but someone who might live up to the prospect pedigree that he had. His rookie season was just almost odd to watch a guy that was considered a can't miss type prospect. A guy who swing I watched in college and was like, this is so simple and perfect and flawless, surely it's going to translate, and he raked in the miners, and then he gets to the major leagues and books completely exposed and I think most concerningly literally hit, I think, two 12 on pitches right down the middle, really struggled against fastballs, and it was just hard to explain. You would hear from the tigers, they thought his swing was grooved that he almost looked too robotic to mechanical in the box. And I think the more we saw him against major league pitching, that certainly became true. And you just never saw him turn on a fastball. Like you might expect from a one one pick. So this off season, there was a lot of talk and seeking to completely revamp his swing. Leg kicked? Does he need to get more athletic in the box? And torque showed up to spring training and that wasn't really the case. I think he has some subtle tweaks. There's a little bit more of a detectable load, a little more hand movement. I think just trying to get him some more rhythm in the box. And then the big question is also as his struggles continued last year, how much of that was physical, how much of that sheerly became mental.

"Yeah, and of course, Shane baz had Tommy John surgery in September 2. So that's a big less. I know that with the race of rotation and bullpen, those concepts are sort of amorphous and Jeffrey springs was a reliever, then he was a starter and he was successful as that too. So you never know who's going to make that transition with this team. So mcclanahan had some shoulder issues late last season, but he was great when he was healthy. So what are the expectations for pitchers who could really step up at least in the absence of buzz in the temporary absence of glass now is there another springs type of conversion success in store or patino, as you said, who could really take a step forward? Yeah, maybe not a conversion, but I think some of those depth guys that I mentioned, I mean, if you told me that one of that trio of Torino patino or Fleming took a huge step forward as a really consistent starter this season, I would not be surprised at all and it could be any one of them. I would be completely guessing at this point and it could go anyway and I believe a Pitino has obviously the raw talent electric fastball, great breaking ball. Has the delivery and everything to make it work. It just hasn't so far at the big league level with the raisin. Injuries played a part last year and everything. You just throw a 97, I believe you touched 97 in his last spring outing and he said he hasn't thrown 97 in spring. So that has to be considered a good sign that he's healthy. You've heard a lot of good things in camp even since I've been here back already about his work ethic and how focused and motivated he looks coming into camp, so that's certainly a guy that I could see taking a step forward and then another one would be their top prospect. Taj Bradley, who's just optioned yesterday, it's likely to begin the season of triple-A Durham, also electric stuff, really good kid. Everyone's really impressed by his work ethic and just the way that he thinks and he could be another guy from within who would be a big addition to the rotation at some point, probably more likely this summer just because he doesn't have a ton of time and triple-A, but that's the kind of guy that I think you can pretty safely bet on as well. So Ben mentioned that the team didn't do much by way of free agent additions, but they did do a number of extensions. You talked about springs briefly, but if I can pivot to the bullpen for a second, talk to us about Pete Fairbanks. First of all, why does Pete Fairbanks always look so nervous? You don't have to answer that, but he does always look quite nervous when he's on the mound. And that made more sense in 2021 than it did last year. We're really, really leaning on these segues today. He had a superlative 2022 his ERA was just above one, his 5th was below one. So what sort of motivated the extension there he's a guy who is a little bit older, he has had injury issues in the past. How did this come about? I think he is a guy who loves playing here. He is very much like a raised pitching success story, you know, every time that they've clinched the playoff spot four years in a row since he came over in 2019, he has gone out of his way to find Eric neander and the champagne celebration or whatever it was in 2020 and say thank you for trading for me. He loves it here. They love having him. He obviously has incredible stuff, the big fastball, the breaking ball. He's a guy who's comfortable pitching late in games, somebody who can work in the 9th inning or obviously the way to raise their bullpen anytime in high leverage. So I think it just kind of made sense as a fit for them wanting to stay together and knock out some of the potentially contentious arbitration type stuff and negotiations. Just let kind of focus on baseball rather than focusing on the business side of it. It's a pretty good deal from his end just to have that financial security for a guy who's had Tommy John surgery twice. Maybe that's why he looks nervous. I'm kidding. He's actually one of the more confident players I've been around. I think it's just like a very manic energy that takes place when he gets on the mound. That's probably a better way to describe it. Resting nervously. It certainly intense, I think, with the crazy eyes and everything. Yeah. But no, I think a lot of their extensions too kind of came about as a result of the fact that they didn't do a lot this off season. Eric neander kind of mentioned that they had a little bit of financial flexibility that they used to kind of keep this core further in place. And it's something that they've done really over the last year plus or so. You look at the wander extension yandy signing F one for three years, Brandon Lau, obviously a couple of years before this, they really like this group and the core of it and they want to keep it together for a couple more years to see if they can finally push it through to win a World Series rather than just making it to it like they did in 2020 or early playoff exits like they've had the last couple of years. So there were a lot of kind of motivating factors to it, the desire for continuity, Fairbanks comfort with the rays, the rays comfort with Fairbanks and the same could be said for springs and yadi Diaz as well. So we should talk a little bit about the offense, which was not a strength, right? It was well, it was a strength relative to the next team that we're about to talk about the tigers. In part, because of the Meadows British trade that the race made with the tigers. Would have led the tigers in home runs if he had stayed there and hit the same number of home runs. But that's again more reflection of the tigers, which we will talk about. But the rays had sort of a middle of the pack offense. It was good enough. But where are the areas where it could improve either with better health or better performance? It's a little bit of both, but better health is the big thing. I mean, you look Brandon Lau played 65 games last season due to various back issues and really wasn't himself even when he could play, talk to him yesterday and asked him to just kind of explain the difference between how he feels the spring compared to last season and he said, well, it doesn't hurt when I swing anymore. I said, well, that's good. So that's a huge thing because he is basically the left handed kind of middle of the order bat that they need, hit 39 home runs drove in 99 runs in 2021 when they scored what about 200 more runs than they did last season and you could point to Brandon Lau is a big reason. For that change, Wanda Franco obviously is the face of the franchise basically now. He was limited by injuries. He looked like he invented the game last April, then legs started to kind of give out on him a little bit due to various injuries. Then he had the hamate fracture, not long after he came back and that can stick with you. He was still fine. I mean, you're talking about a disappointing 117 OPS plus. That's pretty good for a 21 year old, but you want him healthy, you want Brandon Lau healthy. And then you need to see steps forward from a guy like Josh Lowe, who has been apparently one of the talks of camp here so far. He looks a lot more confident, a lot more comfortable taking good swings, taking good at bats. He's a guy who could again answer the need for a left handed bat that they weren't able to get this off season. I heard some excitement about Luke Rayleigh as well the way that he's looked. He's a guy that got last spring and I think he played 20 something games up here, but the fact that they held onto him when he was out of binary league options all off season and didn't really even play kind of their waiver claim game that they usually do to keep him. I think says a lot about their belief in him and maybe what their models have in store for him. So those are the guys that really stand out. I think basically you go across the board and aside from maybe yandy Diaz and Harold Ramirez, I think it's probably fair to expect more from just about everybody who's coming back even parades. I mean, he had 20 home runs, but this is a guy in the miners who was known for getting on base higher average and everything and he hit two O 5 of the three O four O BP. So there's more there as well. I think it's fair to say. So this is going to be sort of a new look outfield. In some ways, in that this will be the first time in a long time that we haven't seen Kevin kiermaier patrolling center field for the trap. Is Jose Siri view to sort of their long-term

"Something something also. It's like the whole world was stuck in the moment like a heart attack. I just looked to my dugout and I got a that's a moment to tell your kids and your grandkids about and brag about for the rest of your life. So that's kind of cool, right? I mean, I guess it's not so different from a Dream Team sort of situation where it's not really fun if it's not competitive and unless you're just so sort of jingoistic that you just want to beat up every other country and that's it. But it's not even just a U.S. thing, obviously they're just mismatches all over the bracket, really. But there have been a lot of really good games even in games that theoretically could have been mismatches. So it's not like I'm watching most of the action thinking this is unfair. This is uncompetitive, but occasionally there are players who are wearing one and you feel for them. Yeah, especially when they are probably excited about facial hair being able to come in fully. Like, I mean, I don't want to infantilize the young man's 19, like he can, well, he can do all kinds of things in Canada that he probably can't do here, but this is a person who's becoming a real fully fledged human being, so I don't mean to make it too big a difference, but also, boy, did it feel bad, I felt so bad for him. I was like, pull up and pull him down. Get him out of there. Yes. And then you had the 5 way tie. Yeah. Pool a, but Cuba and Italy advanced after very complicated tiebreaker calculations. No one could follow because it's not just run differential or something obvious like that. It's lowest quotient of fewest run to loud divided by the number of defensive outs recorded in games between the teams that are tied, followed by lowest quotient of fewest earned runs allowed divided by the number of defensive apps recorded in games where you think the teams are tied fought by highest batting average in games or that round between the teams tied. Why padding average? I don't know. And then just a drug of lots is just like we give up. Just draw a lot. Like, good luck phase. Yeah. So we don't know. Yeah, so it's just a lot of fun. And I got to say, given all of this and the fact that we just get two weeks of this precious WBC and then it goes away for four more years, barring any pandemics in the interim. And I got to say, you know the meme with the guy at the table who puts a sign out and says, changed my mind. Well, here's my version of that meme. Why can we not have more frequent WBC? WBC should be at least every two years. Changed my mind or agree with me because here's my case. I don't really understand why it is every four years other than the fact that you have a tradition of big international sporting events being held every four years with the Olympics or the World Cup, et cetera, but I don't think any of the restrictions and impediments that apply to those really apply to the WBC. It doesn't really seem to me like there's any reason why it shouldn't happen at least every two years because the things that prevent you from holding those other events more frequently. I mean, you have just enormous costs and infrastructure requirements, right? And you have to just build a village, you don't need a WBC village, right? And the ballparks are there and you're already playing it across different countries. So no one country is having to shoulder the load and build a bunch of stuff and have people suffer to build the infrastructure for all of this. And there aren't just a huge number of participants like there are in those events like dozens and dozens, hundreds of countries participating. And all of the qualifying events that lead up to that, like it takes years to decide who's in those things, right? Let alone to play them. And then, of course, you have long traditions because those are events that have been held for a long time. So they stem from eras when travel wasn't as easy and fast as it is now. Through the Olympics every four years because that's what they did in ancient Greece. They probably had to set out to get there like a year before it started. Even the World Cup when they started that it was before you could just easily fly everywhere. And also, you have alternating events in those things, right? So you have winter and summer games that are alternating, or instead of the World Cup, you have continental cups and sacral tournaments that are held in the off years of the World Cup. So you do have more frequent events and there are all sorts of reasons why it might be tough to hold those flagship events more often. But I don't think those really applied to the WBC. There are fewer countries involved. The ballparks are there already. You can get there quickly, it's at a time when people are training for the season anyway. Logistically, it doesn't seem like they're nearly as many challenges associated with this. So I think that a lot of them are your correct resolvable. I do wonder if a greater frequency would actually make teams more comfortable with the pitching piece because it wouldn't seem so aberrant or if it would make them less comfortable with the pitching piece. So there is that consideration, here is another one that I can say as someone who was in the press box for Saturday nights, USA, Great Britain game. If it's every two years, they are going to have to fix the roof at Chase fields and get more concessions because it was hot and there were no more hot dogs to be found at one point Ben I went downstairs to try to get some food and you could just tell that they weren't ready, which I don't understand because no, you know how many tickets you've sold? Aren't you like, wow, there's going to be a lot of people here. We should make sure we have snacks. They're going to want them, but I go downstairs. One place was like, no more food, drinks only, and then across from them was a stand with a woman yelling just as loud as she could. There's no more water. No water. Seems like a problem. She was just like, I've had it. No one seemed like they were having a good time with that, I don't know, in fairness to chase, I don't know how well results, those issues were one further games were played, but they were, they were not prepared, and I was like, oh boy, everyone come in for USA Mexico tomorrow is I hope they get here early so they can drink exactly one beer if that's what they want to do because it might take them that long to get one. But those Arizona infrastructure issues aside also hearing someone yell in Arizona. No water. We have no water, just feels. Didn't feel great, Ben, you know?
"tigers" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Hello. So we've got a preview pod free well today we will be talking about the Tampa Bay Rays and the Detroit tigers, but a few things to discuss before then we could do an entire episode or a week's worth of episodes just on the WBC if you wanted to. There's just so much fun and there's so much to keep up with. I mean, there's no way to keep up. It's like the playoffs where we have trouble keeping up, but more because they're just so many games in so many moments. Sometimes teams are playing two games in a day, at least in my time zone or time zones are great. So as soon as you marvel at one moment, then often that same team is in action again, it's almost like there's no type to save or anything, but it's just coming Fast & Furious, which is really fun too. So since the last time we talked, what have you enjoyed, there have just been so many highlights. Well, I guess as we're recording this on Tuesday, it feels a little silly to start with anything other than Puerto Rico's walk off. Run rule perfect game. Perfect game mercy rule. I don't even know what to tell to call it. I don't quite know what to call it either. I know that it isn't technically a perfect game because they didn't secure 27 ounce, but you know they secured all the outs they were allowed to. So I think it's still quite exciting. It's one of those moments where you're like, wow, it is going to have to be a combined perspective because of the pitch rules, but it was thrilling. And they were so excited. I don't know it was really great. So that is certainly a top of mind for me, the emotional roller coaster that was the potential fate of Team USA over a 24 hour period where they looked toasts and then by virtue of hairy Ford, really. To helping Great Britain diffie Colombia were right back in it and then obviously were triumphant in their nightcap. Ben, so here's the thing. I'm happy that they won. I guess I don't feel like a tremendous amount of patriotic investment, but it was nice to see them hitting the way that you expected them to. But also, I felt very uncomfortable watching a lineup of former all stars MVPs top war getters just ruining the night of a 19 year old. So it felt bad. I looked at this young man. He's kind of young face too, you know? Yeah. Pretty baby faced, and I was just like, I hope that you appreciate that you were presented with a very hard job that was perhaps hard to the point of being unfair, and I know it didn't go well, but you did show up to do it. And there's something in that, you know? We perhaps need to have a greater appreciation for pitchers who, you know, they're willing to wear one, you know? He had to know it was going to go badly. I mean, maybe you didn't think it would go quite that badly, but he had to know it would go badly. And that was what was required because they wanted to save their better pitching for match ups that they thought they had a better shot of winning. And his last name is Brett, and he's so young. And he doesn't seem like a brat, but it's just like, oh, is this tiny? Tiny man? Yeah, I don't know whether that's a bugger a feature of the tournament that there really is a wide range in talent. I mean, you have major leaguers, and you have players who are very far from being major leaguers. That leads to almost uncomfortable moments and just pity and sympathy, which I mentioned last week I was feeling when I was watching China and young pitchers on that team going up against Shohei Ohtani and all these guys, it's like you don't usually have to face these players. You can tell just from the bodies sometimes because small big leaguers are still pretty big, even if they're not tall, they're strapping and some of the players on some WBC teams are sort of shrimpy by comparison. It's just like you're not built like a big leaguer. And sometimes they're blowouts and teams get beat up or Puerto Rico, pitches a perfect most of a game against Israel or whatever, but it also leads to some really fun moments where you had Otani who hit that moonshot against Australia. Oh man. And then in another game against the Czech Republic, he got struck out by Andre saturia, who, as many people noted, is an electrician in his day shop. He had a sound clip where he said the world stopped and he felt like he was having a heart attack. It was

"Roles and with the paper tigers. I mean, these characters were just so fleshed out. And so well written that, you know, I just thought it was for the actors that were involved. I always hear about how they were so grateful and happy to be part of a project like this because like I said, they're not many that come along like this. I run into people who auditioned for roles for happy to have been able to audition and work with bow because when if you get late into the process, he'll have like one, two hour zoom sessions to just go over the script and almost have like a rehearsal with him to see how it's going to work out. And I've had a few actors come. Oh, I really enjoyed auditioning. I'm sorry I didn't get him, but working with bow is such a pleasure. I was like, wow, good job. That's awesome. It bows an actor's director, and that's what I think the actors that were on board really loved about him. That he works with them and kind of nurtures their performances. So I think he was a real treat for them too. Yeah. You can definitely tell that there's a lot of chemistry among the three main leads, but also in that ending scene at the restaurant yuji when you're there talking to them. Already feels like there's a camaraderie, which I thought was really cool. Yeah, I think that's what a lot of people have talked about is the chemistry between the three leads. And it starts at the top, honestly. If the director has no idea how to direct and guide the ship, then it's going to wander aimlessly and performance is going to go astray. But being the director that he is, he kept the ship going forward and, you know, was very collaborative with the actors and listened to their input. And also had his ideas as a director and was really prepared as a director.

"You're listening to Asian American history one O one, a podcast about Asian American history from generally known historical happenings to the deeper cuts that we don't hear about in school. Today, I'll be your host young filling in for Jen with Ted, the usual daughter and father team. And welcome to season three episode ten. Welcome back. Thank you for inviting me on this episode. I love it. Episode ten. That's usually my favorite. I'm just happy that you're excited to join me. So this is actually an interesting episode. It's releasing after the Academy Awards. But we're not going to talk about those awards because we record and edit episodes earlier. So we'll do an Oscars wrap up next episode. Today, instead, we have a special conversation with three of the creators and creatives of the paper tigers, bow tran, Mike Velasquez, and yuji okumoto. Bow tran was the writer director and a producer of the film. This was his brainchild and his first feature directorial. He completed the independent film on a shoestring budget shooting it in Seattle, Washington as an homage to Bruce Lee. However, he's also had writing and directing credits on a number of short films, including bookie and the challenger. He also is an experienced film editor working on cholan and jackpot. Mike Velasquez from E three productions was one of the lead producers, but outside of the paper tigers, he's also a writer, director, and works in visual effects. And yuji okimoto was both a producer and an actor in the film. Yuji is a veteran actor with over 100 credits to his name, but he's probably best known for his role in Karate Kid two and most recently Cobra Kai. But we have to admit that we really liked him in awesome Asian bad guys. If you haven't seen the award winning independent film the paper tigers, then you really need to. It's an amazing comedy action film that has some of the best fight choreography out there. It was released in 2021 during the pandemic, which limited the sales, but it was really well received by audiences and critics alike. Garnering a 98% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It won the grand jury prize for a best feature film at the Seattle, Asia, American film festival, the special jury award for the best editing at the VC film fest of the LA Asian Pacific film festival, and the audience award for best narrative film at the Boston Asian American film festival. Whether you're like action, comedy or stories with deeper meanings, this is well worth watching and we really think it was an amazing film for the Asian American community, showing how much of a need there is still for more diverse storytelling and roles with depth.

I'm actually less bothered by capturing content of it because at least the person's focus than I am when half the people are distracted. Today on that 18th green as Tiger was grinding out one final par for an absolutely heroic round. Every single pair of eyes in that place was on the same thing and there is something wonderfully connective and human about that. It also does both the genteel civility of the crowd, like everybody knows how to behave. Only one asshole, the entire time yelling, getting the hole. And they had to be over my fucking shoulder, like seriously, bro fortunately, I had not had enough vodka at that point to make. I know that a couple of tigers after he did. Yeah, because everybody was yelling out Tiger when he did successful things. Oh, and Morikawa. Hey, get your fucking shit together. Have a lot of money on you. What are you doing? No, we didn't say we were very supportive. We believe in college. Yeah, we walked with him a couple holes just to show our faith in him. He's got a bounce background in them tomorrow. He's got to bounce back around to them tomorrow. I know it. Yes. I love the civility that Nathan mentioned, I'd like the fact that we were all locked in on one thing instead of scattered under a million things. I liked having conversations with people in the conversations with naturally and without somebody looking at their phone and then maybe they would pick up again a minute later. And there's no performance. That was the other thing I wanted to talk about. Like nobody's trying to perform for their phone or perform for whatever their audience of friends. It was also nice post pandemic just to see a lot of faces. Although there was a couple of pandemic moments like we were in a big crowd once and somebody coughed. And it was like a deep kind of deep recesses of the lungs cough and I was just like, I am getting away from the break. It wasn't just one cough. Yeah. So there's still like that residue and come on. It's still weird when you're huddled with people that like, oh, this person's right behind me. And they don't have a mask on. And then it's even weirder when somebody had a mask on.
