Mahomes to have surgery to fix turf toe
"Were talking about Patrick Mahomes undergoing surgery turf toe. And we started talking about this about three hours ago, and we were just going around the room going. Do we know exactly what a turf toe is? Because it gets it gets thrown around a lot and remember when dealing Sanders was with us at the Super Bowl when he took off his sock, and he showed us that toe That was turf toe that never healed whether he had surgery on it or nod Jack Lambert, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, I think had turf toe and it stayed with him the rest of his career, so we thought You know what? Let's bring in somebody who knows what they're talking about. A former NFL offensive lineman won a Super Bowl with Washington a Harvard trained orthopedic doctor, mark addicts and good to have you back on here, Doc. So Do you want us to tell you what we think Turf toe is and then you could probably correct us on this. That'd be great. Let's see what you guys got. Let's see how good you are. All right. I'll start with you, Paulie. What do you think your toe is like a ligament sprain in the toe that hampers an athlete from pushing off like sprinting like running for two. You got a definition for church to one's toe was so severely sprained from the pounding on the torture that it does something. What kind of disconnects Tito from the other toes and needs to be surgically fix a snap back into place. All right, Seaton It is an injury that when, uh, say like wide receivers are going to get their second foot in and they drag it along the left their toes on the turf, and then it gets hurt like that. No, I did not. I did not even look at it that way. Yes, my club, So I thought it was a rug burn style injury from any time she goes on the worse when you're playing with your kids of rug burn, but I do believe it's out. Now ligament underneath your toe that connects to the foot. Okay, let's let's bring in. Doc and Doc. What exactly is Turf toe. Well, I think I think example one wins the ligament injury so it could be a ligament injury. Or it could be an injury to the planter plate, which is almost like a Cartlidge thing That's on the bottom of it, So it is the big toe joint. And it rarely. Is it an injury? There were quite a surgery. The bass majority of players don't require surgery in the NFL there have been about there was a study that was done that had about 30 guys with serfdom. Injuries that were pretty severe, and only about 10% ended up requiring some surgery. Deon Sanders did require surgery. Deon Sanders Strip toe injury did end his career. Essentially, he stuck around for a couple more years, but never really was the same. Antonio Gates had it had a pretty bad turf toe had surgery in 2000 and eight and played Many years was very productive after that injury in surgery, So generally speaking guys, too, Okay. I think John was as his foot with a test was an extreme case. Didn't Mahomes play the Super Bowl with a Tauron ligament? Certainly did. I mean, I In other words, when you have a tip toe injury there, three grades break one. Great, too Great three. It's the same for almost anything. Great one, just a few of the fibers or tourney. Great to a bunch more. Tauron. Great three. It's completely disrupted. So for someone to need surgery generally, there's got to be a little bone chip. It's in the joint or the toe has to be somewhat unstable, which would tell you that that ligament tear had to be pretty significant.
Purell Hopes Well Sanitize Long After the Pandemic Ends
"Daily on this friday february fifth. Happy friday everyone. Here's a question. How much hand sanitizer did you use this week. And betting a lot certainly more than you use before the start of the covid nineteen pandemic well. The same probably goes for the number of extra paper towel rolls. Unopened surface cleaners. You have stored in your home. There is no question that the pandemic has changed our buying habits but it's also changed our hygiene hazards including you guessed it. Just how much sanitizer. We use on our hands as you might expect. Sales of pure l. Hand sanitizer jumped six hundred percent in two thousand and twenty no surprise there and go joe industries which makes pure. Al recently made a move. That's a rarity in its sector. They built a new factory and a new warehouse. Now that is an expensive undertaking. Unless of course. There's a payoff which begs the question. Will there be pure l. Says yes there are betting that demand for hand sanitizer will remain high even when the pandemic is eventually in the rear view mirror. Go jos chief. Executive kerry jairus told the wall street journal that the company which previously had one factory in one warehouse wasn't planning to build any more for a decade but then again they also weren't planning for a global pandemic soon pure l. started flying off the shelves and go joe decided to build. That's a risky move. That other companies within demand products aren't ready to make yet clorox which sells disinfecting cleaners hand wipes and hand sanitizers also saw demand grow during the pandemic as did lysol which sells cleaners and yes hand sanitizer but instead of breaking ground on new buildings clorox and lysol looked for other ways to expand and make more products faster. The wall street journal reported that both companies reconfigured existing factories to increase output and they hired third party manufacturers to make more products if the pandemic ends and demand decreases well. They can simply discontinue the third party products and not lose much money if anything. The pandemic has crowded the hand sanitizer market companies like proctor and gamble which did not sell sanitizer previously jumped into action at the beginning of the pandemic and produce their own sanitizer safeguard for consumers. And don't forget the distilleries texas based vodka maker tito's produced more than eleven hundred tons of hand sanitizer between march and december of last year which they gave away to first responders and other critical personnel other distilleries across the country bottled their sanitizers for profit. Which helped him stay afloat. When tours and tastings were cancelled someday someday this pandemic will be over and when that day comes. Procter and gamble will likely return to their diverse portfolio of laundry detergent shampoo and toothpaste. Tito's will once again focus on cocktails clorox and lysol will continue to meet house cleaning needs but burell

How Much Alcohol Is Too Much
"Many start stopped to consider how much we're drinking and in lots of cases it can be more than we realize. It can often be that trip to the doctor that forces you to really think about how much you consuming we come week for some. This might just be the realization that you're actually drinking in excess with a reliance on alcohol that you didn't even know really existed. This week's food for thought, sees myself a mental health, `Nice Mark Himes who specializes in substance misuse delve into alcohol and addiction to explore how it can change us and what we can do to prevent this from happening. Had No mark aloke morning good morning we are recording this at the feels like the crack of dawn to me to be on mark but. The conversation we're about to have. Probably some people would associate. She thinks star typically with the evening habits but actually for some, it could be all day long. So we know that the health implications of drinking alcohol. A pretty strong. Would it be better for us all on a whole if we were just Tito till Question and we. If we look at it if alcohol yet, another alcohol is a highly. Kelsey GENYK. alcon council, another is linked to sixty different medical conditions. There's always balances while about being humid and looking into experiences were social creatures and some people alcohol plays a really important part in. So in a in a way alcohol. Can just talk modern personal life is the I wouldn't have met my wife I. We probably wouldn't have had my three children without the aid of alcohol. Out The hourly sheet is hume is very complex. We we've been probably doing it from from Vive Aleutians. So it's actually say we'll get rid of this substance Then that's that's that's not going to happen and he's supposed to be aware over that. Really is the people that we should ban it. You know if alcohol was new substances coming out, would bonnet that that's pretty true by actually hasn't we've grown up around it. You know the way that we process alcohol. Way With evolved. Because we've been living side by side with it. And you know throughout I'll. Recycle.
FCC Tweaks CableCard Rules
"This is probably pretty inside baseball, but I know some of you like me. use a cable card at that is capable card. This is the thing the FCC used used to require. the cable companies offer you so you could use your own instead of having to use the cable companies boxer. DVR, the cable card was really Kinda neat idea. It was a credit card device for people old-timers Internet and technology people going back a ways you would recognize it as what we used to call. A P. C.. M. C. I. A. Card P. C. M. C. I. A.. Yeah that that card, there was a credit card but had electrtonics in it. And the idea was it was kind of like nowadays, you could do it with the SIM card truthfully. But this was an old technology around a long time. Nowadays you can do is assume card but in the old days, the cable companies still seems to be living in the old days. They they would make this. MCI Card that you could I left at an end deny PCMCIA. Lot. Letters card. That you would put. In a device, like Tito, for instance, and it would make it the cable box. So you didn't have to use the junky cable walks the cable company provided and you'd read it from them. They're making money on a couple of bucks five bucks something like that. FCC. Has. Just ruled. put a little ruling didn't didn't really pay any. You. Know didn't make a big deal about it and didn't it didn't get a lot of attention. because I think it's a small market. But thank goodness for David Zach. That's Absu. That's not funny. Dot Com. Because if it weren't for him, I might not even be be aware of this. But I use I have three cable cards my house three tvos three cable carts. The FCC has in effect said. We are eliminating a proceeding in which we saw comment on the adoption of new regulations for navigation devices. The FCC calls him devices consumers used to access video programming, and other services offered over multichannel video programming networks, cable networks. and WHO's important part eliminate outdated cable cards, support, and reporting requirements. FCC's Adele worry the market will keep the cable car to live I don't know. According to the FCC. There are half a million cable cards in circulation and they drop every year about ten percent. People aren't using them anymore. You know why? not, because everybody's saying, Oh, I gotta use that comcast box or that Cox box the spectrum by now. Because people are saying, I, just needed her neck. Give Me Internet. I'm I'm I'm curious what you think yesterday Dick Debartolo and I were talking about predictions. We. Had a read back my prediction from two thousand nine, which are wildly inaccurate. But I'M GONNA make. Another prediction maybe possibly wildly inaccurate. I don't think it's could take ten years maybe it'll take five. But more and more of us are going to start getting our our content over the top. You know through the Internet not through the Cable Company and that really in the long run, it might make more sense. For eliminating cable cards just eliminate cable. Not What the cable company wants, but I think that maybe the unintended consequences, this just eliminate the cable. and go over the Internet. Of course, I think most cable companies realized that's the future and are starting to offer more and more on demand stuff over the Internet, and of course, certainly, the content companies no, that's the future. That's why all of a sudden there's HBO Max and Peacock. And Disney plus an apple. TV. Plus these are all over the top. Streaming networks where you you pay a fee, a monthly fee ranging from five to fifteen dollars a month who lose another one, and you get your TV from the Internet, and now you can subscribe to Youtube TV. which. Is really a cable company, but it's just over the Internet fifty five bucks you get your local channels. You get a basic cable package for fifty five bucks over the Internet. How long this is the question I'm posing how long? Before cable companies just become Internet companies. I think that's I think that's happening very rapidly and this getting rid of the cable card is kind of a way of of saying that it's bad for not though. I feel bad for. Tiba owners who have the cable version, the cable variant. But. As you can see, it's not very many anymore. Not. Very many anymore. So the rest of us will either go to you know the the cable provided box which my in my case and I would say suspect many cases is not as good as Tibo offers. Or? We'll just go with a over the top service Youtube TV. It has built in Dvr. You can have six different users can have each have their own. Recording and it's easy. You just press plus on a show and it'll record the show forever. It's got no. I don't maybe there are limits, but it doesn't seem to have any limits on what you can record I. Think it's very easy simple not as there are some things missing. Tibo you can skip commercials I like that they. Put Press. The button boom to just jumps right over the commercial I like that. It's in fact to scrub through shows or move back and forth on a Tivo with a remote than it is on the youtube APP but you know we can live with that. WILL IT BE CHEAPER No No No. I don't think. So there are right now freeways there's a an APP maybe you've seen it called low caste. CAS. Lets you. Watch TV, your local channels free. They're getting away with this, but somehow they are. So there are people help always right enemy say you can. It's cheaper you can get. Pluto. Or other inexpensive solutions, ad-supported solutions and that that's probably the case that'll probably live live on.
"tito" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Tito math that you can recommend for some of our Our listeners who maybe don't know a lot about data well I don't know where it is but I would always go back to the for me and again because sentimental for me but the October thirty first match from Houston Texas Nineteen eighty-one with boxing.

Sooner Tino wasn't doing much Strikeforce but the team turned into two years of stories for him without that what you have stuck around as long as he did you know. I think he would have.

Come out of a shoot God. Oh man you just common sense. This is easy. What did you think fucking complicated? Did you think of the presentation? How did he do? I mean how? How did he do in your opinion? As possible fighter I would have done differently. They had a joint. I WanNa have in fucking now would have had him. I would have seen more of him with the Bulls more of him fighting with moles. I would have actually done the big Sunday Kim bullfight and find the work in bull. A rebels are S and By the way the got work and bowls well listen. Let's talk about that for a minute because these days. You could never do this because even if you're not actually showing. Tito Stab Bulls with swords the idea that there's even an El Matador. Bullfighter gimmick pedo would be all up your ass. Did you guys do you remember having any sort of pushback from activist groups about there being a bullfighter character? No because we spoke about the the romance of it all and just the we didn't talk about killing bull so to speak when you did. You tied it back into your opponent. I guess and they never showed it. They never showed inviting bowls. I would have shown inviting. I wouldn't have shown him killing bulls not favor of that now but I would show him in the ring with an actual bull said the creative editing. They did you listen to this show and thank wish those a fuck ton more rumor and a Shitload. More innuendo then. The wrestler review is the show for you. The wrestler review is a weekly podcast with comedians. John Hastings Dylan got who make a point of wildly speculating wrestler salaries and also been fired from jobs for bringing firearms? Okay seriously you probably familiar with John and Dylan. Because they've been on the art of wrestling. They've been on post.

"I was gone by the time that they actually did you. Someone else to go down and do that. However as far as the pitch was this was in order for it to be genuine Tito. He needed to go through that. Vince wanted this to be genuine and fight the ball. I gotTa see you in the rain and we did you actually put in in the bull ring and Talk Tito how to fight bulls. He went through the Bull Fighters Training School. Just like someone coming in to be a wrestler. You go through training school in. Tito did all of that in I can't. I can't really speak to what happened after that. You know for what reasons are were whatever the hell happened after that. Because I wasn't there but I thought that the concept was good and it did it fresh him up a little bit as you don't know that they ever did anything with it beyond that okay. I'm with you on that. But hypothetically what minded of sounded like when? Vince went to pitch this character. Tito Toro. Taro him out. I don't know L. Ballo got damn. How a couple of bowls fucking over. Talk to me about the creative thinking though behind. Okay we gotta up Tito You know we've heard sort of your rationale and the thinking behind giving a guy like Barry Windham the Stalker Gimmick. Tito in his real life didn't do bullfighting though. You guys just wanted to more colorful presentation. Something that would look cool as an action figure or help me out. The above Tito going to learn this craft was about as heritage in being able to go back. Learn this craft and become a great bullfighter. He had done everything that he wanted to do. Now he wanted to conquer another arena. Hats El Matador. I love you for trying to sell it. What's not trying to sell this? What it is. This is also the era where we dress up ricky. The Dragon steamboat and making blow far. Right what is the dragon do? Conrad please tell me what the fuck am watch. Game of thrones.

"Started here. Tito's going to beat Akeem. Round one by count out and he set to face the winner of the Brutus beefcake match both candidates so tito gets a bottle of the finals and on April twenty four th in San Antonio Mr Perfect would defeat Tito and the finals of the tournament to win the intercontinental title. Of course this is all happening because we know that The ultimate warrior has beaten Hogan for the world title so we need a new IC- champ and it comes down to perfect. Tito he of course at this point and has a Former intercontinental champion. So He's credible opponent for Mr Perfect to be right absolutely. It was great matches. Well they had on little program or they were able to work that for a little while. Just have great matches. Which is what we're looking to do introduce perfect. Get perfect of a muscle also mentioned that after this. Tito's on a lot of house show matches against the warlord Mr Perfect. He's on the losing side of all those one thousand nine hundred survivor series. We see in team with Nikolov. Oh and the bush-whackers come Bruce Wall saying the prior year he's taming with dusty Rhodes. Brutus beefcake Red Rooster now god Damn Bushwacker and Volkov. He slowed down the car. It's why don't you just acknowledge this? Because there's no slide down the cars slides. Goddamn top guy. That's working helping all the people get over. We'll do ultimate warrior never attained Nikolov. Oh from the BUSHWACKER. Well it wasn't a top Guy Champion of you. Here's the deal though. This is worth mentioning because as much as I want to argue that. Here's what happens a year. He's the winner and the sole survivor in an elimination style. Match against Sargent slaughter. Boris Sukhov and the Orient Express and then Tito will donate Boris into NOCCO and slaughter Gets D. queued so titas last one? He's the sole survivor. He was actually. He gets to the final elimination match which is not something. They did very often. But what was the old cliche used to say about Strive to survive or something like that have five stratus survived so now you have the survivors from each match. Go to one main event and on the bad guy side. It's Rick Martel tape. Db OSCE Hercules and Paul Roma on the good Saad. It's whole Hogan the ultimate warrior and Tito Santana Santana eliminates the warlord with his flying forearm before being pinned by DMC. But either way though I think most people on the outside when they see the main event instead of it being just coke on the ultimate warrior the main event from the prior wrestlemainia against stacked said a bad guys. Tito Santana's in here and part of me wonders is that to allow a little bit cannon fodder for Ted DB. He pimm hot or is it. Because and I'm going to get way out here for reach. We heard a generation later that Vince really wanted to start targeting. The Hispanic market the Latino market so smackdown would have more Latino flair. The top guys being ray mysterious. Danny Guerrero is that the thinking. Here that maybe. Hey let's because again when you go back to the www f you wanted sorta someone for everyone and now that may seem a little cliche. But if you have a real honest conversation with Dave Silva Dave silvis favorite wrestler when he was growing up was Tito Santana and if you ask him why he was like me he was Mexican and so I get that like from a little kid standpoint. You want someone who looks like you the for luck you can grow up and do this because that God did type of thing I get it. Is that the thinking here? Or is it more about God POW. And we're going to have Hogan and were there at the end we got to. Have Somebody take a pin for. Ted is thirteen toe in there again. You wanted you're going what we were going with hoping a warrior with them to be those last survivors and doesn't work when it's halt warrior O N. Tito's does somebody had to lose right but yeah going back to the point of Dave Silva looking at his favorite wrestler being Tito Santana. I think that goes a lot when you're looking at especially in. I can only speak from Texas in particular and the Hispanic community because I my best friend on the canal was Mexican. His parents were from Monterey and they only spoke Spanish in the house and it was a different culture so I was at his house. More than it wasn't my house in you. Get to to learn and you see the family dynamics. In the way that they thought was different than the way that my family thought right but there is a there is a pride in their an US against them. Not In a bad way. But it's you unite. You support those that are like you and you support your culture. It's the same thing in a weird way like the hometown. Got Like you pull for if POPs up. You're like Oh man that got Bama we gotta pull for him. That's all exactly and so when you're sitting there and and there's There's someone that they said this like you are. I want get behind him. I WanNa see them succeed in a WanNa be able to to live vicariously through them. Well you definitely had an opportunity to do that with Tito Santana and Tito say that coming out of this. When he's in the main of here of a pay per view taming with Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior. He thinks he's getting a push coming out of that but it doesn't really happen and he would say as a even a little depressing. He takes a brief high this from the company. He's wrestling so mandy shots. But these are indy with former WWF. Names like Tony Atlas and talk to me about you know how Vince allowed this in this era for a guy or maybe even vince his idea. You know if a Gaza burn out. Maybe just we've often heard people say. Oh it just needs to go learn a new hold. Maybe the just needed a break have been there for a long time. Been there for the long run in the hall and the Grind and Tito did need a break. He just wanted to get off. The road spent some time at home with his wife and kids and were some independence. Just get away from the madness if you will and because of WHO. Tito was Vince. Let him do. It can't yes that'll help. And yes. Maybe we'll come back. We'll figure something else out for you. The perception among of guys over the years. We've heard this from many different folks as you don't you. Don't leave if you express that you're frustrated of not happy with your spot or you WanNa take a break you take time off you might quote unquote lose your spot. Why was was this okay for Tito here? Where maybe some other guys would think. Oh that's the last thing. Either or thank the. Tito had confidence in himself in his position in that he could come back and do something else that I don't think Tito was at insecure. I think for the rest that would subscribe to that position may be a little insecure. As far as I gotTA HOLD ONTO. Spot can't lose it versus giving yourself in the audience a break and then come back and they've the heart grows fonder when you return. Well he does return and when he returns it. Feels like Bruce Prichard phrase. He needed a fresh paint of coat. He's given the Gimmick of El Matador and Tito would say that this was Vance has idea and Tito admits that he hated it. And Taylor says that. Usually when someone's given a gimmick like this they'd get pushed so he assumes that's going to happen. He says Vincent Him to Mexico to learn how to bullfight which Tito did say it was a great experience and Tito said that he hears Vince would claim he spent over half a million dollars on all of that while Tito was in Mexico and not long after he gets back from Mexico. He asked Vince what merchandise they were going to do for it. Vince that call the merchandise department and he does. And He's told all they're gonNA do is make the action figure. Tino says that's it and I said yes. And then he calls his wife and says okay so they don't have any plans for El Matador. Talk to me about the El Matador Gimmick. A name to hear what this modest sounded like. When Vince went to pitch this Tito well. I was the only thing that I was there for the El Matador. Gimmick was I did the first site survey I went down to Tijuana and did the tour of the bullring and met with the bullfighter and in went over all vignettes. We actually going to shoot. I never shot him and.

"What you saw what you got on Tedo. The Tito is very very warm natural of just real person and there's nothing put on about him. He's a good guy he would mean guy that would be the first one to come to your aid and if something was someone was doing someone wrong. Tito would be the first guy to step up and say. Hey Man don't do that in a he'll a good he'll does have to have some of those asshole Ian Tendencies that. I'm not sure the Tito has in a Tito's just to go to person maybe could have. I don't know Usually heals the best guys in the locker room. But I don't know I think the he was too nice as only talks about this split. I mean a few years after this if you had a long term tag team who had success and maybe a couple of tag rains and and then they split up. There's going to be a series of matches on television and on pay per view. This is maybe a different era though because these guys only wrestling house shows there's never a blow off there's never A pay per view attraction of Rick Martel versus Tito. Santana is it just reserved for the House. Show business because at that time. You're just more interested in selling. Tickets will exactly the live event businesses. Where we made our money and that match was able to go around and make it's money in the live events possess what you did when it got around to pay per view. The philosophy in those days was now. Do something different. Let's go to October. Fourteenth Nineteen Ninety nine the King of the Ring Tournament tapping their held on house shows than these days and Tito would defeat. Rick in the finals to become the nineteen eighty nine king of the ring so that seems like that would be a pretty cool little attraction but it's never mentioned on TV. Was this simply something that you know. How show promoters and local promoters were trying to put together or why is this never promoted on television because was a live event was promoted locally and we had you had your issues and you had your programs on television and those would go to live events but every once in a while if you have a special attraction like King of the Ring Tournament and it was probably in providence or somewhere that was in close proximity to another major market? Then you give it something different with a royal rumble. Match or a King of the ringers. Just something different categories theme. Let's keep going. Let's talk about the next big paper view. At survivor series nineteen eighty-nine Tito Santana is gonNA team with dusty. Rhodes the Red Rooster and Brutus beefcake. What a team that is to take on big boss Man Rick Martel Bad News Brown and Honky. Tonk man man when you just look at these teams if you take a snapshot of WWF wrestling in nineteen eighty nine. This is fucking it as it not at the gimmicks across his. Lana well gimmicks big boss man Red.

"That whole thing as well and I don't think that anyone really knew specifically how long rick was going to be out and he wanted to come back and express that desire to come back. You're hoping that all right we can get through this and keep Tito the back burner. Keep enrolling so the win. Rick comes back. Just slide him into that slot and you're good to go. Let's talk about what happens here. Wrestlemania five now let's recap wrestlemainia four strikeforce versus demolition wrestlemainia. Five strikeforce versus the Brain Busters Goddamn the TAG team division man. Of course the brain busters are totally. Blanchard AREN'T ANDERSON. One of my favorite tag teams of all time and in the match This is fun to note. Tito was facing his old college quarterback Tully blanchard during this mass heater would accidentally hit rick with the flying forearm and for the rest of the match. Rick wouldn't tag in and ends up leaving and going to the dressing room. Of course Tito winds up receiving the spike piledriver. He's pin man. This wrestlemainia was my first big WRESTLEMAINIA. That I didn't watch on because my first memory of wrestling is watching a double take. Vhs WRESTLEMANIA four so wrestlemania. Five is one that I'm all into and the idea dirty bastard Rick Martel would just not Taghi and leave. Tito hanging man. You sold me Hook Line and sinker. This is a great story line. Though is it not yeah was because was just so simple and this is back in the day when you could do shit like that in easy to understand and I hit my part right. Fuck you man. I'll tell you anymore. You WanNa go do by yourself the deal by yourself so nice. I miss the simplicity of some of the things. We used to be a well. I think a lot of people do. I mean it was told the whole story and right afterwards rick would cut a Promo on. Tito in the dressing room. He's going to turn heel and eventually become rick. The Model Martel and after the split think it's been written at. Tito ASKED TO BE A. He'll too but vince declines that. Why was I mean? Obviously from a short term storytelling piece. You definitely need the partner to be. He'll and in to say baby face but long-term Vincent didn't see `tatoes a hill fair to say absolutely because it's hard to hate Tito Santana. The human being is.

"Out. There she showed you attend pretty good fucking teams. The that vision was displayed in. Its best light. Yeah I mean. Let's not exactly my favorite team. But the killer or are conic fabulous. Josie Max the Hart Foundation though the British bulldogs demolition and strikeforce. Some really really phenomenal tag teams and the islanders were. No slouch is just really impressive. the the amount of tag team town that you guys have here over the next several months strikeforce is going to have a bunch of different title defences mostly against the heart foundation and the islanders unless fast forward to Wrestlemania four March twenty seventh nineteen eighty eight demolition would defeat strike forced to win the tag titles. We've done a full show on demolition. One of my absolute favorite tag teams of all time. Now available the Archives of course during the Maths Martel would hurt his neck. And it's going to have to be out of action for several months. But his wife is ill and he's taken time off to take care of her and during the rest of Nineteen eighty-eight Tito mostly used in Lower mashes on how shows with no real angles or like that and Martel would return at the eighty nine royal rumble. And they're going to reform strikeforce. Let's talk about that from just a the mentality. I know it's a different business now. But here eight when you have a popular tag team like this and one of the guys go down but the other guys still healthy. That guy still wants to work. He still wants to eat. He still wants to earn some money. But you really don't WanNa get too far committed with a singles Ron if you're still hopeful that his partner's coming back right exactly and you. WanNa be able to if there's a story but you need to know what his partner's coming back. That's kind of key in.

"With the model and got out of that It was getaway to showcase both balance my opinion. This opportunity is born out of Tom. Zink leaving the promotion. We know the zinc is going to show up. Wcw The Zemun will become the new thing and they'll have a little bit of a singles rowing team with Brian. Perelman and I don't know I I've always been curious. What leads to Zemun leaving the he? I don't really remember. Somebody asked me this the other day. The exact same question and Bessemer recollection was the. Tom Won't basically want to be a big fish in a smaller pond and felt that he wasn't going to be the guy. Interacting did like travelling as much so think the opportunity to go to Crockett work. They're not have the same travel schedule that the WWE Time was more suitable for him. Let's let's talk about the next big moment for Tito. It's October twenty. Seventh nineteen eighty seven. Strikeforce would defeat the Hart Foundation to win the World Tag team. Titles I gotTa Tell You when you look back and this era the late eighties early nineties. I think you could argue that this tag division with. Wwf has may be the most conic in history. I mean an absolutely stacked. Division perhaps not better than the Har- foundation just a tremendous per presentation here and get a win over them is a big deal but to win the tag titles It's another feather in the Cap Potanin. Now yes and they had is. You said there were so many teams work with killer bees demolitions coming in start to get over Good Lord the Bolsheviks talking great teams here the Rouge there were great teams and I think having those guys as tag team champions in was carrying the banner it worked. I think they made division that much stronger. The the next big thing that we're GonNa see Happen is survivor series. Eighty seven strikeforce is involved stack tag team elimination match. We've talked about this a lot. They're teaming with the British bulldogs. The killer bees the fabulous shows and the young stallions. The Take on the Hart Foundation highlanders the Bolsheviks Demolition they know Bravo and Greg. Valentine in the Matt's Tito would pinball Sukhov and he's later pinned by Jim Knight Heart and I guess that makes sense considering that strikeforce actually beat the Hart Foundation for the tag titles. Dude is this one of the most interesting mashes to look at just as far as the visual presentation. I mean others do fucking brutal man it was so God damn long to other than the fact that when we got everyone around the ring rang the bells like Holy Shit. Nobody can see the Maj because it was such a mass of humanity's standing on the Apron of all the other tactics is ten guys on each side and it was Fucking brutal midway through we finally got the GM DOWN. Kinda shoot up over little bit him. But from a spectator point of view. If you were in the arena live sitting ringside or in any in the lower sections. Your views sucked. You don't think that somebody's asked the whole time. Thought it was. It was interesting to have all those teams.

"In cars Jimmy Hart wrote that saying that and by God is Tiki a torch beach thing that he sold yes girls in cars. Great Song Talk to me about you. Know what what were the plans for? Tito so to speak. I mean it feels like he's been positioned as an intercontinental guy and done very well there but now we're gonNA maybe transition to a more flamboyant style with a macho man randy savage so feels like. We're trying to find something for Tito. We slide him into a six-man at Wrestlemania. Three there's no bad spot on the WRESTLEMANIA three card. Let me be clear. But I'm just saying it's a departure from his singles work and now we're looking for a tag partner did Vince. Perhaps at the time feel like maybe. Tito didn't have the interview chops or he didn't have the charisma to be the right fit in his his New Vision for sports entertainment. And maybe he needed a partner to sorta finish out the the presentation. Or what's your thinking on that? Thank anything was four Martel because Martel is never been accused of being a great promo in. I think that the combination of the two both incredible talents in the rang and just to help rick relate a little bit more by putting him with Tito. So Dido's English was obviously a whole hell of a lot better than marseils. They were good team in. That was where you know. Vince always wanted to have the concept tag teams to work with whoever it may be demolition. The Dream Team the bulldogs. All those rouge does a lot of great teams in. During that time I felt that this was a way to showcase mortels his work in hopefully rick which he did eventually.

"And we would have the majority of the access to Tito Santana because he would work a lot in the southwest area and he would still obviously go in. Work Verne's territory as well but after we do this tournament the tournament was designed to get Tito Santana over brand new know. Tito's debut Tito. Kate was able to come in on Saturday and Sunday. So it's Tito's debut and in the middle of the Damn Thing Tito Beats Winkle in the middle of the tournament and so now Tito's gotTa win over the Awa world champion. Tito goes on and he wins. The three tournament gets the big trophy and the fifty thousand dollars. And so on. So forth Nice Sidebar Tita. One in they handed in the trophy at the end in check. His family hit the rain and started borrowing trying to borrow money from him. You met him in new track in. You'll meow many just got fifty thousand dollars lengthy so their home with you. What that's actually true story. They were hitting for money in the rain. Fifty grand bargains is mother was in the ring it was it was awesome and it was so fucking cool and so then right after we did that. And we bring Tito in for the matches with Bach Link for the title and there's one match for Tito got his blade out way too soon. In Cut Balk winkle on stomach cut him on his legs on his arms and people are looking going. Westbank Nichols leg bleeding. Like a stuck pig. Shit look at a stomach is like somebody is crazy absolutely crazy but then Tito got an offer to go back to New York and it was kind of okay. Do I stay in the Awa? Do I take this opportunity or do I go back to New York and Tito chose to go back to New York and so we had done all this work to get? Tito over it to make him the guy he was going to be our our top baby face in he moved on. Well cuts up manage finally good weather. It's time to get outside and enjoy a little nature and I have got a great way to do that. Let's make this the most fun summer..

"Junior so it was those matches and obviously there on July Twentieth Nineteen seventy-three Jacqueline the end of the World Heavyweight Championship in the Sam Houston Coliseum. The third fall against hardly raised with the Luth this press and was awarded which you folks call the big globe belt with Red Velvet. Strap on it and I just absolutely love that bell. Not Nearly as much as I love the belt that Harley retired that night that story funk junior gene Comiskey and Pat O'connor and Liu says war I think what they're what you meant to say was domed Globe said You said big globe so best differ big fucking Dome Glove Big Gold. Dome glow the had a baby and it was known as big lobe so Tito goes to Atlanta. Can't believe this has happened. He's given the name of Richard Blood. Which is Ricky steamboats real name? And Tito said he was given that name because Ricky steamboat was previously in Atlanta. But all the Anderson who was booking let him go so then he goes to Charlotte becomes the hottest thing that have at the time and when Tito came in only Asterik. He's permission if he could use his real name. Richard Blood for Tito and Ricky. Let him do it. So what TITO SHOWS UP IN ATLANTA? He's Richard Blood Dude. How does this yeah? It's it's kind of interesting when you have that kind of name. We talked about that in a Ricky Dragon. Simbone episode that theory. Add this cool name. Dick Blood and changes to ricky steamboat. Because he look like Sam steamboat in any grams is but obviously didn't work that long for Mr Sola either when Tito Gifts TO ATLANTA. They tell him they're going to try to work with him on top but he only works about four matches when he gets there some against Paul orndorff and they also College football rivals and only tells him. Because you're young good looking Guy. They want you to come to the ring with some energy jump over the top rope and getting the ring so he does I match there as it gets. Ted OATES IN AUGUSTA Georgia anti jumps over the ropes but trips and falls into the ring. I guess everybody has to start somewhere as he with some pretty tough learning when he's here Georgia championship wrestling. And he's taken some bumps he's not supposed to and he's teaming with Brian Armstrong and trying to get better and even though Brad is younger than Tito. Brad's grown up in the business. Because his father Bob Armstrong so teaming with Brad actually helped Tito learn a ton. Brand Armstrong is one of those universally beloved Gaza and wrestling. Could you make a comparison to a a modern brand Armstrong? Is Someone today that reminds you of our Brad Armstrong from back. In the day I think that as far as workwise goes Randy Orton. The end even personality except Randy was able to transform his personality and get it on camera. Brad Armstrong was one of the funniest human beings. I've ever had the pleasure being around great personality. Everybody loved Brad Brad with crack up the entire locker room telling stories and jokes very dry and quick witted. But you couldn't get that out of Brad in a promo because as soon as the red light came on. Brandon's say well we'll tell you something I'm going to be coming their mobile Alabama. We'll give it one hundred ten percent and I'm going to be going to be flipping them. We're going to be flying and and I won't tell you something Jerry Stubbs when I put that figure four leg lock on you. I'M NOT GONNA stop until I win or outbreak that will just straightforward monotone and The the Brad Armstrong outside of that environment was the life of the Party so he could do anything in the ring. Same thing and I would compare Brad Armstrong to Jack Brisco in. He was just so smooth his shit look great and again another just tremendous human being that we lost way way too soon really a tremendous performer. Tito's also roommates with Dino Bravo in Atlanta in fact Dino Tales. Tito the he should start saying Ariba after his interviews. Tito impression I e those tacos are Jesus. Paul Jones is also a big help to Tito's development and they traveled together and Paul teaches him a lot about wrestling psychology. And from there Tito went to Amarillo. Which at the time was been booked by Dick Murdoch and Blackjack Mulligan? Tito's only there a few months while he's there Andre. The giant takes one of Tito's tapes and gives it to. Vince McMahon Senior and Andre and. Tito become friends and they've both been in Georgia and Oli appointed. Tito to make sure that Andre made the shots so Tito sorta becomes Andres Handler and drives him around and let him sleep in his bed so they become big friends. And that really pays off here because Vince invites them to New York. And Tito has a dark match. Vince tells to come up with a catchy name. And there was a guy who lived in Tito's hometown of mission taxes. His last name was Santana which Tito thought might be cool so chooses. Santana for a last name and Tito for a first name. That was drank lot walking. That'd be me and you talk to me a little bit about Andre. The giant being the connection for Tito in the WWF. We've heard before Through many different sources that Rick. Flair sorta became the half asked recruiter for Jim Crockett Promotions. Because as he was the touring in w world champion he would have an eye for talent and say man. Those guys are hot and come back and say Jimmy. You gotTa take a look at whoever was rocking your express Arn Anderson. Whatever it in order to do the same think Andre did the same thing because he traveled all over the world. Independently is an attraction. Brought in Ave saw everybody on a nightly basis would go sometimes from Houston to Chicago to La back to New York to pan to Paris. That was kinda scheduled at Audrey kept so Andre saw everybody in everything that was out there. Something with the old world heavyweight champion or not so much the Awa because they only worked within their territory but yeah the traveling attractions dusty rose. That's how dusty spotted talent. 'cause dusty would head out dusty would go work a couple of weeks in Texas. He'd go to Kansas City. He'd go to New York and Minneapolis and see what was out there and then make recommendations back home. Hey this guy be great. This guy would be good to bring in some point so that was the beauty of being able to travel and go to different areas. Because you got to see different talent. Let's let's talk about some of the success. He has October Twenty Second Nineteen seventy-nine Tito Ivan Plus Ski Win The WWF World Tag team titles from the valiant brothers. They held them until April Twelfth nineteen eighty when they lose them to the wild. Samoans advanced would later asked he where he wanted to go. Wrestled Tito chose the AWA. Because he'd heard good things and there's really nothing but top guys there at the time. So Vinson's him there. He would work pretty regularly in the AWA from eighty to eighty two. He also had a couple of tours of Japan for giant Baba for about six weeks. And while T. in the Awa he winds up teaming with a fellow named Rick Martel against the High Flyers Greg Ganja and Jim Ryan Zell and baby-faced matches of course Tito and rick would later become the WWF world tag team champions as strikeforce in. Nineteen eighty-seven The Awa is almost like I don't know why people don't talk about that more I mean. Do you think it's I mean over the years. It feels like maybe because they were the two remaining territories the longest but people talk about the WWF. People talk about Jim. Crockett promotions and the AWA is almost like a forgotten territory but once upon a time they were a super territory and well before there was an. Ac W where people call them the big three the Awa was really the other member of the quote unquote big three arguably bigger. Certainly bigger than Crockett at different times right absolutely and I think as far as size in the amount of area if you just went area it would be n. w. a. w. a. w. w. w. f. but when you look at the as far as how many towns and what they drew so on so forth it would be nwea www f because the east coast the condensed amount of population there and then. Awa just because AWA was so spread out but all three were I believe equally successful and they in their own areas. They all did very very well I'll tell you a story about you. Know you case dates there talked about. Tito being in the AWA until eighty two or whatever part of the plan. I don't know I think I talked about this and the Houston wrestling episode but part of the plan for. Tedo was nineteen eighty-one October of Nineteen eighty-one Talbot celebrated fifty years in Wrestling Paul.

"tito" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Told me about a Jesus. That's the end of the show gimmick but now back in the day you remember Taco Bell had the Chili Cheese Burrito but before they called it that they called Toledo and then I guess somebody's smart him up that those actually slang for little paints. I was just little penis now one little today civil told me. Yeah they've so say little either way though. We're talking about Tito Santana today. He is our subject and covered him because This weekend would've have been silver related to Tito. I mean I don't think so. I think I think. Tito was just his favorite wrestler grown up. But I don't know that we've talked about that a lot here but he does have wrestling family members. But I know all over the place but I don't think Tito's on the list eight away though born may tenth nineteen fifty-three mission Texas How did you first mate Tito Santana the cells like somebody that you would have been familiar with very early in your wrestling Phantom? I knew about Tito none. I mean Laura. Tito's just a few years older than I am like by ten But I did not get to meet Tito until nineteen eighty one. I'd seen different things with Tito. He'd been working for Verne I don't know if he had had his truck think he'd had his first run with this by that time. But you know more said Solis man did you call him or Said Call. Dita JUST ASSUME EVERYBODY CALLS HIM. Tito and I don't know why is that Ought ABOUT THAT. Like how weird that dynamic is were some guys we by their real name and others you called by their quote. Unquote stage name. Yeah because it's how you feel for example. I think that the Fox entity be Aussie entirely of those guys. I think called Tieto Mercedes and eventually they kind of went over to Tito but they went to college with him in West Texas state. Been Paret motherfucker south like they. They knew him first. Abolishes Mercedes' so Tito was was the hard-won get used to but I always knew Tito by God. Well I'll tell you what a whole generation of US wrestling fans especially folks listening to this show right now. We're up with Tito Santana. I mean I can't remember there being a time when he wasn't a part of a WWF programming Maybe one of the most underrated talents of all time and way back in the day the www f there was more of a I don't know I would say it's SORTA UFC style presentation or we had an Italian fellow in an Irish philosopher and Cuban fellow and a Mexican fellow and I mean you had representation for the different ethnicities and backgrounds and that was sort of what fans clamored to on on the W. WWF programming right especially in the northeast where every ethnicity had to have someone to cheer for. They needed heard guy in everywhere you went for. For the most part I know in Texas it was always important to have a strong Hispanic representation so we had jose look thorough meal. Mosca Gorman Goliath so yeah that was that was important. That was important to do in. You wanted someone to represent each ethnic region. Well a lot of people. Sort of talk about Ricky steamboat as being the best buffet. Face of all time. But Tito's got to be on the list somewhere Dutney. I think the t you know I don't think Tito ever had A. He'll run anywhere for any reason. And he is the consummate good good guy inside the ring outside the ring up. Think-i find anybody would ever say. They had a crossword with him. What's interesting is what I was doing. My research here found. The Tito wasn't exactly a wrestling fan growing up and we've done so many of these sort profile bog orphee shows and the guy almost always grows up fan. I mean that's the reason he sort of put yourself through the rigors of this but it winds up being a legend in the business and he doesn't even necessarily grow up as a fan. As you mentioned a moment ago he did go to West Texas State University man. There was something in the water there. I mean he's tight end on the football team. The quarterback of team was Tully Blanchard also on the team Ted. Db Aussie and to your point. The funks I mean the list just goes on. And on and on mckinney pinpoint. What exactly was about West Texas State University or is it just you know the Fox Dad was in the business and it seemed like a fun thing and guys were getting a little bit of notoriety and making some money and maybe getting some attention from some girls and everybody just is attracted to it. Well I think that for those that lived in Texas West Texas state was pretty dominant school. Obviously it was you know. Ut or a Enam smu or anything like that but west. Texas state was a good solid college and maybe. I'm just spitballing here. For some of the aspiring wrestlers. Who thought maybe I'll go there and catch the eye of the Fox. He become a wrestler. Someday I I don't really know but I know that for people that lived in the area for example diaz-balart in the Iron Mike Diaz his dad. That's where he was brought up so going. West Texas eight or gone conclusion In Tito in mission Texas it was place was attainable and Blanchard the San Antone Texas by God West Texas state in the Fox blanchard and the funks close. So it just made sense now. As we've said many times before Dick Murdoch did not go to West Texas state. The played in the alumni game every year go figure tallies dad. The quarterback of that team Joe Blanchard ran southwest championship wrestling in Texas. He would often come to the games. Of course to see tally play. And towards the end of Tito's junior year they started talking to him about becoming a professional wrestler. And Tito would say I wasn't interested. He still has hopes of playing in the. Nfl and Tito did wind up getting signed by the Kansas City chiefs but he's released in training camp a plays a season for the BBC. Lions of the Canadian Football League And he appeared in thirteen regular season games. And when it doesn't seem like football is the future decides. Hey let's let's take up Joe and telly on their offer and become a professional wrestler. That you've ever talked to. Tito about his Football hopes the I have through the years. Because it's always come up with dead to be Aussie in in Tito in. I in fact that Tito being a fellow Texan. Of course you talked about those kind of things and Tito really did love football and it was a major accomplishment for Tito to play football west Texas state's family large family man Had the pleasure of meeting his brother is mother is yeah. I think every cousin everybody in Salt Lake family but yeah it was it was a Lotta Fun those refund years and you add on top of it the Terry funk and Dory funk connection.
"tito" Discussed on The Creative's Journey
"Guys. So thanks for listening to the podcast so far. This is the part basie where I wanted to go ahead and recap the process and just general. Take waste from the episode. I wanted to start off with going ahead and recapping the process that Teo goes through four. His work so I we started off with him talking about how he gets inspiration whether he goes through instagram or Pinterest or any other visual medium. He goes ahead and he finds things that inspire him and it could be anything you know whether there's video or sound on yours. Version does not if you want one cents. After HE GETS INSPIRATION. He goes to location. He goes ahead and he scouts locations all around Houston trying to find good architecture with leading lines and what not to complement his photography and You know he goes ahead and find locations than saves them for future date as X. Round the second thing is he goes ahead and he gets a model He finds somebody that he can really collaborate. Will you know how we talked about earlier? Tito said modeling was kind of a two way street. And also that Just because he will good does not mean that you will be a good auto it really comes with its own style and its own level of expertise and skill if you will. The third thing is shooting. He goes ahead and he shoots detoxify and he finds the actual weather for that day. Then he goes ahead and at. Its his Photography and editing is like you said he likes to make his you know he likes his shooting a little bit underexposed. You make us photography much brighter to give it more dynamic contrast on and more and more dynamic range next thing I wanted to talk about the general life lessons that we learned from. Tito in this episode. So you're the first thing that we learned really was about. Tito talking about his equipment at his camera and he was talking about the misconception. That amazing equipment equates amazing market. We both go ahead and speak about how that is very much the case. So just know that if you don't have mazing right now it's fine and I promise you if you work hard you can be is interational sleeping on a good good take time and you really need to make sure that you relish all the details and really let them sit before you execute and then see is time you know. Enjoy the process. It's not going anywhere and then the fourth thing that I wanted to talk about was taking breaks team breaks is really important as created because sometimes you fourth lack of better words get awesome sauce. And maybe you're making too much of the same word or you're kind of stuck in some ways it's important to step back and to get a national nice fresh perspective The last thing was about creative outlets taking work. You know That I think is very important. I think a lot of people that are not familiar with arts or they don't make them as as often Believed that it's like all leisure your and it's very It is there a -peutic but just because it's therapeutic doesn't mean that it is easy or that it requires a lack of effort creative outlets take work and sometimes true passion was the only thing that will give you the motivation for our. If you really don't care about it and you're doing it because the wave you know I'm sorry. Oh yeah so. That's really about it. I think that overall this was a great episode and Tita was a great guest. If you listen this fall does far. I appreciated

An Interview with Jason Watkins of 'The Crown'
"My next. Guest is a legendary and award winning actor of the big and the small screen. You can currently find him in his fantastic portrayal of Wilson in the crown. Please welcome Jason Walk Ins Jason. So happy to be talking to you today loveless tote you thank you for inviting me on the show. Yeah I mean I'm so blessed to have you on you know I I have to say to you before we get into the real meat and potatoes of your career and life here. I'm starting to believe that. Only great people are born in October. I think this is is true and it does take. It takes a long time for people other months to really understand this. Of course we all know over here in fact we say every day here in the UK said that people born up there by Just blasted more special than in other months. But you know I I don't WanNa put anybody else stateside but it is a truism that we're all gonna come to terms I I. I am an October sixteenth. I know you're in October. So it's twenty yes so it is. Yeah and I also have to say that you know and this is you know I really feel. I feel like my guests that come on from England and Canada. There's an unmatched kindness. Not that that's not to say that my American guests or other guests or not. But I feel like there's a kindness there that it's really unmatched. Yeah I yeah I mean you'd have to ask Yeah I mean yes I think so. I mean nine MCI I mean my wife did say one of the reasons was that I was coined. I'd like to think that it was just meeting of the rest of ovulation of the UK. ORLANDI candidate Yeah I don't know where we tend to be. I don't know I think some think Americans ought to say what they think. And maybe we're a bit more guarded. We think denial but I think Americans are much more direct and I think Brits perhaps a bit more go round the houses a bit and we have have a different way into things but I think I will I I can be myself. I suppose I do. I do try and be kind of kind of this guy's a fairly long way. So yeah that's well said well said you know how how much of your before getting through some of the things I want to get into your. How much of your time during the course of your career have you spent in the states filming or or is it been mostly in England or UK in that area what spicy it must be in the UK in Spain Italy And in France briefly worked in the states downey honey. I've never done any filming face I've done plays in the states. Throw Shakespeare Company Many ago now but I've not taking taking that plunge and you know it would be nice to think that maybe something Kim crop up over there in the next couple of years. Maybe off the back of the crown but I I have a life here and I've lost two children and it's difficult to feel that I can jump on a plane but I am what I really would like to the states. And maybe you know maybe it now is the time but No offensive work. There says made that can happen at some point. It's not like you're when you have. You have unbelievable filmography. You know you have the doctor. Who Franchise James Bond Franchise so? It's not like you're not well known in the states. Just just a matter of time I would say Jayson and especially the right tragic income. Nothing's couple of pilots to come by and the couple might be worked out no works. How cold although wasn't sure about so you know I'm available America? Let's see what we love. You think so much incredible material. I mean we're producing some really good stuff after say in the UK. Just great stuff coming out of the states you know you eat succession for example is great. Show unbelievable those two. They're just fantastic stuff and so we know something like that would be a real adventure. There's no question there's no question and the good thing with forums and platforms like net flicks and Amazon prime. Is We get to see some of that work. That's created in England. Yeah I mean I know you've called ox is well. I think that that's redux available. Yes yeah and that's that's I just think it's just I think it was the launch before it most here but he had some new platforms. I think the IT's incredible. Isn't it how how hungry people often new content and And an author thing was really good. Is there such different worlds. That people being able to view things in different wells different times very unusual stories and I think I think perhaps micheals studios in classrooms realizing the The great the public do want to delve in D.. Talent different different wells and different the way different. People live and socialize. The way they work I and I think that's That's amazing really that the breadth of materialize is expanding as well as the content which I think is crucial capable guy. No Oh that's really well said it and not only that the opportunity for actors is now increased as well so we get to see a lot more accurate. We see more shows more creativity so yeah for for a whole bunch onto reasons. I'm so happy where we live in times that we do. Jason yes Golden Age Television. I think I mean net flicks particular work Investing investing love Monday in the UK. In shepperton studios. I think that you know they've they've purchased some of the sound stages armed Building new swell. So you you know this this It's a good time to act and to work in the industry. Yeah absolutely and you don't feel like you're not the first guest. I've had gone to the Royal Academy the Dramatic Art. I feel and I can't put my finger on who else but I know I've said this name that before. How big a part has that kind kind of making you into this refined actor? Obviously you're always learning but how much of a part to play in your life as an actor I mean without it. Could you be where you are today or was that kind of credit. A lot of into that. I think when you're young I mean I went there on US twenty and I think I was quite to from the suburbs fairly unanimous tickly. Didn't much I'm the I'm GonNa History in the story. So as bits of fresh-faced I and Competitive Country Bumpkin almost nothing. It just introduced lots of different things and different forms Taser and technical staff and also encouraged what I can do. Naturally I think what I did. Well L. Naturally I think he can Hans expanded and inspired me. Perhaps and so I think those things kind of stay with you. I mean I think that was a great. I mean I thank some of the teachers you know there were at a fantastic catch Washington mazing accent dialect teacher and I've been I still thank keep in touch with their. We'll see her into her and remember the kind of Tito whether she she's not age. When you're that young those things sort of stay with you I I mean actually I mean even before I went to Rawda defend his school and and I? I'm kind of a homeless person. The street and I was kind of improvising. Him and describes. It's my friend and he said why don't you just sort of improvised I'll draw you so. I ended up being before when Toronto doing these characters than while I was rod stiff fill characters take Haq's back to implying. he drool me so there was this kind of The memory of doing that was a weird. We stayed with me. I really enjoy character acting building different characters off the people on the street meet and they will kind of go in and also still. I'm still doing that all. These is later nothing rotter it. Kinda rationalized that gave us structure in a place that you can carry forward into your work

How Winston Churchill defeated Nazism despite his 'black dog'
"Now today on the show visual defend our island whatever they got maybe we should fight on the beaches on the landing grounds the field and in the street fighting the hill will never surrender churchill the subject of countless plies movies drama series documentaries and biographies indeed believe it or not there have been a thousand Churchill Biographies One thousand the first biography was written in nineteen ninety five and the author of the latest one is our guest today now according to the prominent British columnist and historian Tom and heffer regular guest on this program this most recent Churchill biographies the best single volume imaginable of a man whose life would seem take impossible to get into a single volume the book is called Churchill Walking with destiny and the author is Andrew Roberts who's written other water declined books including a biography on Napoleon and the storm of war a new history of the Second World War Andrew Welcome to ABC Radio Thank you Tony took great on us now as I mentioned they've already been a thousand Churchill books published what's different about yours when I was very fortunate that there's been an enormous amount of sources that have come out over the last five years since I've been writing this book the Queen allows me to be the first Churchill biographer to use of his diaries and came due to sex mets church every Tuesday at the second mobile church who trusted him the great secret civil war and luckily rate down everything churchill say within forty one new sense of papers have been deposed to church college archives in the Cambridge University and other people like the servies investor time I even mice gate rations diaries basic become available giving those same in fact now on top of the dates and accounts of the war cabinet but I discovered six years ago allows me to have some they pretty much every page book it's never appeared in nature to focus okay well let's start with Churchill's upbringing can you tell us about Winston's parents briefly well he's talking to the upper cloth he was a charismatic successful Victorian politician he became chance of Exchan- so you never saw any of genius in Churchill and green to netted frankly they all the Stanford right to any sound full of contempt and to stay and his son Winston continue to love him and Martin and when his father died when Winston was twenty he raises who's focusing in Winston sorry randolph someone's name and he basically didn't allow it to to scream up whereas his mother also route took nations over to she was a great American future in society maybe something offense with the Prince of Wales Austrian about Saddam heels Okay and you went to school did he do you have did you have much luck at school I mean what sort of student was he he was a monster the student and he made himself out to be it's very rare for politicians to try and make themselves out to be thicker than they genuinely All I it should be in fact that being the dumbs 'cause he portrayed himself broke free my life he in fact was in the top third of all the classes ooh okay well let's turn to Churchill politics because he wasn't always a conservative he crossed the parliamentary floor in Nantes in four over the threat four government opposed to free trade in non white at thirty three he was the youngest cabinet member in forty years and then of course he was pretty significant figuring the British military from an early age this is of Relevance to Australians Andrew What do you wrote about his filings glibly in Nineteen fifteen well of course he was responsible for the idea of the of attacking the Straits of the dodgers novels and it was a brilliant idea to come off name one of the great strategic tunes of the of history of all Pfaff but as we all know say silently on the eighteenth of March nineteen fifteen Liane go six ships foods straits and then of course largely town to Him we double down and and landed all the way through fifteen and of course over the next eight months few one hundred forty seven thousand casualties suffered in the in the West Inside Straight so this was a drastic and terrible decision but one boots the real problem came in implementation well yeah okay now we went into politics to elect liberals rejoined the conservatives in the mid nineteen twenties what did he do that because the conservatives came back to the idea of free trade they it'd been the policy that let's say that's the party he joined the Nipples does the Conservatives dumps feature each and David intense you're often attributed with the quite quite I if a man is not a suspect I by the time he's twenty he has no heart if he's not a conservative by the time he's forty he has no brain churchill really say that I am and unfortunately there are lots of great lines like that but he didn't say he might have if you're going to keep going for example make the safest shape about about lady astor drinking coffee around any number of things keeping lucky men like Groucho Marx no power say funny things people with cheating too even if you didn't say those funny things it was talking about Winston Churchill with Andrew Roberts now Andrew your account numerous occasions when Churchill cheated death in your fi. He survived a school stabbing Cuban Bullets Boer Artillery German shells on the western front a near drowning replaying crushes three car accidents and a house fire Croaky and I'm actually very serious mainly at the age of eleven nomadic agent doctors administered brandy to the inevitable and which she wanted to be so you will send you make the point the church will develop the art of seeing virtually everything through the prism of history yeah it was the fact that he wasn't himself from historic congruent several extremely good he's a genius he was widely seen as Virginia wasn't he won the Nobel Prize for literature and actually he's unhappy about that because the price for peace that he was going to win communicants history who actually has been disappointed when he got the Nobel Prize which shop now we talk about a lot of people think of Churchill he's attitude towards the Nazis and Hitler and of course the British policy of appeasement toward Nazi Germany people forget this but in the late thirties it was actually popular with the British people tell us more about how Churchill riled against the spirit of the Times in the lightning thirties well he was only a final team is it's like jeeze you grew up with Jesus father did like the whole day with them they appreciated the service they it says humanity he was honest from quite an early age and saying he had an early warning system came during the Nazis that a lot of the other people in many wrench AC- rights didn't have also were so we mentioned earlier in being an historian he he sold the threat let's go to the European balance of power that we opposed and EDUC- seen fanaticism place in his life in a way that the other primary tonight people standing Naples we will never change and didn't say he was the first major predisposition of the decade the only major politician to not only warn against Hitler Nazis but also talk with an idea about what do I e rearming especially in the air the by the way you know you obviously know John Howard our second longest serving prime minister did you know that he's middle name is Winston it was named by his parents in mid Naughty thirty nine? When as we've discussed Winston Churchill was anything but the flavor of the month he was seen as yesterday's man rod that shows John's parents and Great must be full size. This is searching tremendously impressive actually I didn't know that's in Ann Arbor got I think yeah well during the war Churchill husband and relations with the United States which meant that America applied an important role in helping Britain defeat awesome but what about the altar pace conference towards the end of World War Two was not Churchill's finest hour why well because they back large number of famine of Yugoslavs to to get to Marshal Tito too because he he basically killed them and a hand backlog Germans and ethnic Germans who an ethnic Russians as well actually Cossacks to stone promptly murdered them as well so as far as the share sort of real politique day was concerned they had to believe result in general had to believe starlings were vulne- that he was going to get to respect the integrity and independence another eastern European countries but unfortunately Adelson those deals went shot which net new Mexico's yeah false assurances by S- talented the free elections would be held in eastern Europe but I mean you bit hot on Churchill because many historians would decide that the dying FDI he essentially stitched Churchill up I didn't believe that case I've been I've found myself we H mccown superbowl cabinet Churchill held on return from Yalta in which very much that he thought he could business was done in the deeper deep stalling the only alternative to trust on of course he was for that much thin walls and it's very other fueled fairness of course because in a million Russian soldiers variant at the time he was also at Folsom Missouri in March Ninety six When you made the Great Iron Kerr in speech the first major Western politician to warn against started was doing in eastern Europe
Collings Foundation B-17
"Her first item from the NTSB this is NTSB issues seven safety recommendations to FAA related to ongoing lionair and ethiopian airlines crash investigations so is the headline indicates the NTSB's issued these seven safety recommendations the FAA he and i think is everyone probably knows the NTSB cannot order the FAA to ex- accept any of them and sometimes the FAA does sometimes they don't well these particular concerns are about the the multiple alerts in indicators that are considered when making assumptions as part of design safety assess commits and these are derived from the NTSB's examination of the safety in assessments that were conducted as part of the original design of the m. s. boeing's maneuvering characteristics augmentation system on the seven three seven max and the chairman of the NTSB robertson walt said we saw in these two accidents that the crews did not react in the ways boeing in the FAA assumed they were would he says those assumptions were used in the design of the airplane and we found a gap between the assumptions used to certify the max and real world experiences of these crews where pilots were faced with multiple alarms and alerts at the same time he says it is important to note that our safety recommendation report addresses that issue and does not analyzed the actions of the pilots involved in the lion air and ethiopian airlines since that analysis is part of the ongoing accident investigations by the respective authorities well what do you guys think this is i think interesting way to look at it at least you know this pass at it NTSB believes that the pilots would react in a certain way when the sirens started going off the m started activating and things just didn't work out that way what i really like about the recommendations divided into three specific areas in the first one says ensure system safety assessments for the seven thirty seven max and this is the part i like and other transport category airplanes that you certain assumptions about pilot response to uncommanded flight control inputs and consider the effects of alerts and indications i like the fact that they put in and other transport cabinet lori airplanes so that this isn't just going to be applied to one aircraft yes the NTSB as looking at this kind of system wide and not re cricketing the the the core issues here too just the circumstances with seven three seven max so that's good there's other other categories mike of recommendations here from the NTSB yeah they talk about incorporating robust tools and methods for validating those assumptions about pilot response and incorp rating system diagnostic tools to improve the prioritization is what it says clearly present failure indications the pilots to improve the timeliness and effectiveness response but what was interesting there was another story as well that unfortunately i can't get into right now because it was the financial times and it's not living in without being able to log in but it's about highlighting the importance of human factors that no company should ignore and especial and basically it talks about pilot overload and that's a lot of the things took place and what's interesting to me about that is didn't the air force did some big studies about pilot overload when they were dividing their fighters because there was so much information that by side to take into account right and apparently they didn't consider this in the in transport category aircraft in human factors his that's an area where it's easy make assumptions and unless you kind of test those assumptions there's no guarantee that as we see here that the the real world variances going to match with those assumptions because i don't know maybe there are people that are look at human factors from scientific st endpoint but it to me it just feels less quantifiable and therefore more more difficult to ensure that you're going to get the the reaction from the pilots that that you anticipate there's a lot of psychology that goes into that later stay yeah yeah what they should have done was put people in the simulator and see what happened at didn't get done so well and put people in the simulator that don't know what's about to happen and in an overly overly simplified cinematic version is what you saw in the tom hanks hudson movie where you know they were overdrive by the birds hit and cruising the simulators immediately diverted and made it to tito berg and the tom okay and the character said way we spent time trying to figure out what's going on macomb wait for whatever it was thirty five seconds to figure out what's going on and then some they couldn't make it and this may be a example in real life of what was cinematic -ly over-simplified in who've it's giving time for the crew to figure out okay some klaxons going off all right let's start looking at buttons in an alert rosters or alert pants yeah that's that's very perceptive that the yeah it's a similar kind of a an issue from a standpoint of human factors and how people respond to the city relations well we've been talking about the i. KO assembly in canada that's been going on the international civil aviation asian organization and that assembly we see has approved going forward with corset which is a carbon offsetting reduction scheme for international aviation and the the assembly also committed itself to undertake the research needed to develop by twenty twenty two a roadmap for a long term climate goal for national aviation so for the most heart in there are some exceptions here but for the most part the the members of keio are dedicated to proceeding with this carbon offset kind of scheme that we've you know we've had some difficulty in the past we've seen some difficulty being implemented in the past there were three countries that objected to this though that being china india and russia and i'm not certain what their specific reasons were for not being in favour of moving ahead with this coursey program india you can kind of speculate and perhaps china to that they are trying hang to catch up let's say to the rest of the world in terms of industry capability aviation capability and they may be feeling that a carbon offset program would not work to the benefit of of their airlines their aviation industry in relation to the rest so the world that may be part of their motivation carbon offsetting is a tough word define and even looking at the page this talks about it doesn't really explain what it means i hear carbon offsetting i think oh that what are we gonna do plant a tree for every airplane takes off it it doesn't really explain it almost act i mean what they say is if you if you produce carbon and can't reduce it to the levels that you know are the are the target levels then you have to do something else or fund something else that has an offsetting kind of effect so in some ways it kind of is like planning tree if you're gonna produce carbon and you can't reduce your carbon footprint to the again to the the level specified for for your industry segment than you gotta go out and do something else and then the other the other way that sometimes this is done is is with a marketplace where carbon credits can be what and sold and i think that approaches one where you're trying to create some economic incentive to reduce your own carbon footprint if you don't then you have to go out and purchase credits in i guess in that case the revenue from your purchase of that credits goes toward towards funding these other kinds of programs that seek to reduce the carbon footprint
Tpac Amaru executed - September 24, 1572

South Africa unveils $5 billion bailout of state power group Eskom
"South Africa has one of the biggest economies in Africa. But it's facing a major power crisis electric power is the problem. South Africa's state owned utility Eskom has a near monopoly over the power industry. But it's been a financial disaster. Not just for the company itself. But for the national economy mismanagement and corruption are widely seen as the root cause but how to straighten out the company is a matter of public debate today. South Africa's finance minister announced his plan for a bailout of the utility setting outside Twenty-three below Rhonda. Violation is support Eskom. Jody is reconfiguration. Some tepid reaction there. But also some applause for finance Minister Tito, Mboweni twenty three billion South African rand by the way is about five billion US dollars. That'll be paid over three years to Eskom. But MBNA wanted to point out that the deal is not a blank check. The fiscal support. This is very important. The fiscal support is conditional. On the appointment of an independent chief the officer. We'll be jointly appointed by the minister of finance and the minister of public enterprises, the head of Eskom wanted more bailout money from the South African government and boy named declined. He said pouring money directly into the state's utility in. Its current form would be like pouring water into a
Who is Gerald Butts? And what happens now?
"His resignation, the typical political scandal narrative swirled around Gerald butts, a political stunt up from Ottawa one of the prime minister's most trusted advisers, a longtime friend Gerald butts has resigned amid allegations the prime minister's office interfered to help Quebec engineering giant SNC loveline avoid a criminal prosecution statement butts flato denied any wrongdoing saying the allegations have become a distraction from the prime minister and the government's work. So he stepping aside except Jerry butts, isn't your typical political staffer resignation not at all as much as this move will dominate headlines all week. And of course, it indicates that the SNC level and scandal is probably going to get a lot worse before it gets better. The most interesting story from this is about a break-up. You see Justin Trudeau has never won anything without Jerry butts. And now he's got an election in eight months and butts walked away from his partner and his friend at the time. He was needed more than ever. So why? Who is the man that every insider on the hill has used as an unnamed source at one point or another how much Justin Trudeau's policy came from him. What will the prime minister of Canada do now without his right hand, man. I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story Holwell's is a senior writer at Maclean's. He knows more about the personal relationships at play in politics than anybody on parliament health. Paul who is jailed butts. He was until. Minister's principal secretary, which is which is a job title looking to have many meanings over time. He was the prime minister's right hand Ranya was his right hand since long before he was the prime minister he co managed the campaign in twenty fifteen. He went to McGill University Justin Trudeau in the nineties and they've been nearly inseparable ever since. I mean, I I was hearing rumors guesswork from people who the both of them better than I nearly twenty years ago. Just try to prime minister Sherry butts wants to make up and he did it and then he walked away. Yeah. He there is around town that Jerry butts doesn't have hurt in the job as much lately as he had those rumors are from before Christmas from last autumn. And so to some extent as amazing is not a huge surprise. This is not somebody who was in the middle of new adventures and was looking forward to the next grade accomplishment. There was there was a sense. That but says been a little listless and not not as deeply engaged with files as as yet been for. That's kind of interesting because the first thing that everybody went to is the timing and the relationship to the scandal you're saying that that this might have been brewing for some time. Well, it's pretty clear that the scandal has something to do with it. But it's easier to get someone to give up on a job, if they are have already in toying with the idea, you know, and and a lot of quite reasonably a lot of speculation a lot of the reaction to the announcement of his resignation was people say, well, look if he's done nothing wrong. Then why is he quit if you know if there's no fire than wildest smoke. And I think it's possible that possible we'll find out, but that the resignation was kind of an expression of to hell with this. I don't need. I you know, I made my best friend minister he's been prime minister for three years. I was in all the meetings. I was at dinner with Barack Obama off I go, you know, there's still there's still way more unanswered than. Answered questions around the sessions, he level and business. So I'm hesitant to speculate with great certainty, but that's a that's a looking supposition. What was to the best of your knowledge people around the hill. Anyway, what was their working relationship lake? How how close were they I I mean, I know they were really good friends. But but how did it work between them important decisions were made by the prime minister is chief of staff, Katie Telford and its principal secretary Gerald butts all three of them together in meetings that they would have a few times a day. And you know, sometimes the the circle would be extended is probably ten or a dozen people who would be frequent make frequent appearances at those meetings. But if they were all in the same city together and Telford or would never be absent from those big decision. They were at least as necessary to the process was the prime minister. Maybe who is he is a guy if you spent any time with them, you hang out with them. Remember the first time you met him. I don't remember the first time I met him. But I'll tell you an early extended. That a time. I spent with him was on a big maybe both in the Arctic for a week in probably two thousand eight why the hell did that happen? Because even Harper was would have the Canadian forces do annual sovereignty patrols in Arctic waters. Right. And I was interested in that as a journalist. He's coming Stephen Harper throw budget that point was the head of the World Wildlife federation for Canada, and he was interested in it for climate change. And so I asked the harbor PM. Would you put me on his boat? And when I got there Jerry was there, and so he and I spent a week on the deck of a Canadian navy boat in the art looking at icebergs, and what was he lying? What struck you about him? He he's a low T. He's not emotionally demonstrative. He is friendly to everybody he encounters. He is not nearly as sort of confrontational and abrasive in person as us on Twitter where he's very act and where. Since long before the election every night. He would cheerfully Perec journalists on on his perception of the flaws in their reporting and analysis, which is when I had a bit of a falling. But in person he seeks agreement rather than confrontation. He doesn't pull rank particularly he doesn't say, you know, look, I'm I'm Justin Trudeau in. You're not his competitive advantage in history comes to the fact that when when else these he's in the room until recently, he wasn't room with the leader with the prime minister. And so he he gets the last say, but in the moment, he doesn't he's not look looks for fights. There's been a ton of discussion since he resigned about him kind of being the man behind the curtain when it comes to Justin Trudeau. Do you have a sense of how much power he wielded there? And how many how much of of Trudeau's actions kind of came from him, or is that just kind of the typical stereotype people tend to exaggerate the roles of left tenants for people who are. Supporters or members of government. It's a way to criticize the leader with criticized leader, criticized the people around and for Ponant of the government. It is a handy way to make it look like the prime minister staffed himself up with monsters as having many times with conservative and liberal prime ministers people used to claim that Stephen Harper was we're in for a university of how profit and Tom Flanagan and then for the last seven years. Harper was prime minister was was well known that he wasn't even speaking time finding his angry. He didn't need the supposed send galley was controlling. Similarly, look, I expect that Justin Trudeau will be able to function as prime minister for the rest of this calendar year without without journal butts around, but even people in the gone, even people whose future was bound up with Justin Trudeau's continued electoral success would complain about the extent to which biggest then get made until Jerry butts got around to getting the file and and the decision. This government is not a super fast that decision. And since the beginning large part of perceived reason for that is that Jerry butts and or Tito for half to personally find off on every important decision. And so there was just this huge bottleneck. It was not a discentralising when he came to power Justin Trudeau announced that cabinet government cabinet is none other words ministers have power to make their own decisions. Everything I hear says that hasn't been true you've covered a lot of governments. Do you have a sense of how rare it is for it to be structured that way and decisions to made like that? It is everyone complains about excessive power in in five ministries EM Brodie who was chief of staff to Stephen Harper for a while. We're really interesting book that outlines all the reasons why that's kinda needs to be the case. Why important decisions have to go through the? But I mean, there could be six or eight people who make those decisions the definition of what is the decision. So important that it has to go through the pm couldn't does change from government to government and the combination of very elevated executive decision. Making power in the hands of prime ministers to principal tenants, and the very close personal relationship. It's not unprecedented. But it's very it's very novel. I mean chief of staff John tape phone after back city Christian and Peltier went to seize up together, you know, in the stone age, and so there there have been cases where personal relationship translates to a functional relationship in office. But Harper was not buddies with any of his chief of staff, so if a bit of a pendulum, and and and it can it can go both ways. Do we have a sense yet
