Woke Crowd Cries Racism After 'Slave Play' Tony Awards Snub

"For a theater geek like me like me. Last night was the like the super bowl because it was the tony awards. I've got a friend in moulin rouge actually a few friends in moulin rouge and moulin rouge the musical. The huge winner. I was really really excited for danny burstein. Zeya a new york actor. He had just a horrific year. he's one of the stars of moulin rouge on broadway. And he's been a broadway actor for and he and his wife. Rebecca luker a real beloved couple rebecca. His wife got ls and both of them got cove head and she died last december. This past december. So he's back on stage with moulin rouge. He won his first. Tony award very gracious speech. And there's a huge controversy about the play side not the musical side you got you got musicals and you got you got plays right and the play that was expected to clean up at. The tonys was a play called slave plane. I know people who saw it and said it was a incoherent mess. It's just. I don't even know what it's about something about. It's all woke stuff about race. It's race and sexuality and you know a lot of people. I know roy just didn't like it at all but you know the woke crowd of new york being the wo- crowd it was nominated for. I think i think twelve tony awards. It was completely shut out. It didn't win a single tony so now of course come the accusations that the tony select selection committee is racist. Because everything's got to be racist. Everything is a lack of diversity. Everything about And of course. New york's broadway community is about the most diverse community in the world. But it's not enough for the woke crowd

Andrew Rannells: From Book of Mormon to Modern Love

"So like many people remember seeing seeing the tonys in two thousand eleven and soon after you popped up on girls. Hbo and have gone onto this largely tv and film career. Was that the plan all along. Did you want to transition eventually to tv while you were doing theater and doing the show. No not exactly. I mean i had wanted to be on broadway since i was a kid. And my dream had always been beyond broadway and to be a leading man on broadway and i the opportunity to replace a couple of shows than when i did that a couple times. I was like really like to do a new one. That would be nice. So i took some some time to focus on just trying to find new musicals that that i could come into to new york with and debut on broadway and it happened that it was the book of mormon every few years. There's a broadway show. That sort of attracts the attention of the west coast. It happened with rent in. It happened with certainly with hamilton and the book of mormon was also one of their shows. And if i'm being totally honest. I'd film two seasons of girls and then had done a pilot with ryan murphy for show called the new normal that was picked up and was going to be on. Nbc and i was still doing the book of mormon. While i was doing all of that i was still in the show. I didn't know that. Yeah and i was able to continue to do it. And then it got picked up. And then i had to move. I had to move to los angeles and it was an opportunity. That was too good to not pass up and it was not necessarily. The tv stuff was not necessarily always on my radar. I really just wanted to do theater

The Game Awards Sees Huge Viewership Growth Once Again in 2020

"Right. So first some stats released by The Game Awards this morning on their viewership for the twenty-twenty show. They saw $83 million total live streams with a peek of 8.3 million concurrent viewers. That's an eighty four percent growth on the 2019 broadcast every year the show has been growing rapidly in 2017. The total viewership was eleven point five million. So the game awards has seen an increase of seventy one point five million unique viewers over the last three years, but we do have to qualify these numbers comparing live streaming numbers two numbers from TV broadcast. Is how we ended up with bad stats like League of Legends has more viewers than the Superbowl they don't and they still don't but you could find the CNBC article claiming that they do on Google. They haven't taken it down. I don't know why the problem is that it's an apples to oranges comparison. When you compare unique live streaming viewers to TV ratings, which require consistent viewing. That's why the major Esports developers have brought Nielsen's am a stat to quantify their viewership right against World son AMA of twenty-three million. That's great. The Superbowl is around a hundred million. It's not closed but it's still really impressive when we don't have a m a a better comparison to TV ratings are pecan currents. But even that number is going to be higher than a TV rating because that's based on an average audience not on the top total audience wage. So with those qualifications in place and I am not saying the game awards are bigger than any of the he got family. It feels like it's getting close the Emmys and the tone. He's presenting Awards and wage. TV and Broadway respectively are the two least watched award shows with 5.1 million viewers for the Emmys and five point five million viewers for the Tony's in 2019 the Grammys and the Oscars are on another level above music's Grammys saw viewership of 16.5 million and Hollywood's Oscars were at twenty three point six million in 2019. So how's the game awards have a way to go but this is a broadcast first created in 2014. The Oscars have been around since nineteen twenty-nine the Tonys Grammys and Emmys were all created for a 1960 as well. So it's safe to say they had a bit of a head start with the crazy increase in viewership year-over-year and the way the game awards has embraced KO streaming. It's the only one of these award shows on a growth trajectory. Now again until the game awards Embraces am a stats. We won't be able to directly compare but one comparison we can make is the total industry the two biggest dog. Shows my viewership are in music and film video games are a bigger total industry than music and film combined. It sounds crazy. But it's true. The game awards is quickly becoming to go to a commercial for this massive industry and big stars are beginning to appear at it. Always a good step forward give it another five years and we might have to add another letter to he got

"Riedel in the morning Michael I'm such a fan of this guy our next guest is Nathan lane you know he's won three Tonys but just my goodness incredible the producers you saman bird cage Michael I guess it's fair to say you know Broadway I he's got to be considered one of the all time greats oh my god I mean one of the great moments in my feet are going life was why was right out of college my first job was a little magazine called theater week and one of the very first place I had the cover was Terrence McNally who sadly we lost to the coronaviruses play called the Lisbon traviata about an opera lovers kind of a a lonely depressed guy anyway and there was this guy never heard before name Nathan Layne plane the opera lover and he was by turns hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time and I think I have seen every single performance he's given and I can honestly say he delivers a hundred and ten percent Nathan lane has never given a bad performance so welcome to the program our friend Nathan lane good morning Nathan wait a minute let I wanna check this connection is this Michael Reese very good while I hate you've never been to our feet Michael what do you why then why it's only the second day did not reveal is well known for being a thorn in the side of P. one Broadway has he ever been not a solar for both older very pointed boulder all you know well it either one day it could be rocky in the next everyone talking get sick not not me more this is this is one of my favorite moments the land so when Nathan was in The Addams Family which it adds a little bit of trouble there and I probably wasn't the kindest critic of The Addams Family I wrote something and I get an email from Nathan and it came around Christmas time and he is what he wrote I just found it I pray that I'm Christmas Eve you will be visited by three spirits and that by Christmas morning you will be a changed man or maybe you'll just be visited by three teamsters who will beat the spirit of Christmas in the U. hello and Marie how you holding up Nathan are you a self quarantining did need need some toilet paper that we get to where now I now know where out in and out of the Hamptons real in our house out here yeah citing it out with the highly entitled for toilet paper and the expanding the economic screen okay I mean it you know like everyone we're we're making the best of it obviously if the scary surreal crime in the difficult part is that we don't know what the end of this movie Americans aren't known for their patients so I I you know I think it is good it just it's going to take a lot longer than we would like it and but you know we'll and we don't have to work together we know that they were not known for we have to get up and try to help each other and so I I look I like to try to remain positive I think we all commodities stronger for it and and but it's yeah this is a difficult time we've never been through anything like this I like to have Broadway people such as yourself on on anything because Broadway shut down in but frankly we don't know when it's going to reopen but just want to remind people how important Broadway is to the city I mean to its cultural life but also its economic life are you in touch with a lot of your Broadway friends I know successful people you can whether it but I think that like a lot of the kids in the chorus this is the first job on Broadway they don't have those kind of statements or resources I'm I'm concerned about them yeah well I yes everyone anyone is living paycheck to paycheck you're concerned about you are hoping that some of this government stimulus is going to people like that I I yeah I mean I I you know I haven't I've talked to some friends and it Sir yeah everyone is just so I'd look you know you look at the everyone is obviously a critical for the future and and that you know and then you A. you know look at this he is this young guy Nick Cordero what's it for but this is a you know it's just heartbreaking and excel I am you know I earn you know yours I'm sort of at a loss right you know you just you know you keep I keep making donations and I and you're trying to to do everything they've asked us to do which is to stay in the heart that and I you know I just think we all have to try to live by that I you know I'm I'm fearful of people opening up things too soon and then and then we'll be there to be hit with another wave of this so it it's typically believed I obviously also people have to make a living people are you struggling it it's it's really difficult and I think we're gonna have to figure out how to live with this I think for a while and and on some level I mean I don't know how we gather together in cedars court before I don't I just don't think people are what will want to do it and what is the backseat and and also will be a will people have disposable income to spend on Broadway shows all of that is going to take a very long time some of the great nation lane outer yeah well I'll bring you back up because we had a funny line from where I am with Nathan lane we had your costar from the producers Matthew Broderick last week he was telling us when you guys were trying out the producers in Chicago you're getting whole areas laughs and on stage during the show your turn to Matthews said you know it's not that fun and I he he he would often talk to me under his breath Matthew he would get out we he could sort of do a a running commentary on the play this call yes I know now when David producers who that was sort of a once in a lifetime experience your way I mean little if no one ever expected that kind of reaction it was sort of the zeitgeist six S. I think after so many heavy British musicals and this was a return to a very old fashioned musical comedy and absolutely at the end people it was sort of what people felt they needed them and it was hello guys yeah no one could have predicted that you know it's not the first preview was like that people went crazy and then I said I did say to Matthew let Clinton off Scot aged a bit like that it'll never be like that again these are diehard fans of that you know that the it's a cult will be it and then it was like that every night after this one remarkable say we gotta run but just one last thought this is going to be in a book that I'm working on that you kindly gave me an interview for a lot of lot of people don't know this land but some of the really good lines in the producers Nathan came up with and when you come up with a good line what did Mel used to yell at you he's he's to yell out something yeah no credit no loyalties no credit I don't read it yeah it was a very collaborative area I looked there was nothing better than it is to get out of being in a rehearsal room and and like improvising with knowledge coming up with things the lines are jokes and it it you know look at how we started in the in the city there are writers wrote and they'll do good to do that with them you know it was just one of the the great great highlights of my career Dan Dan and thirty our farm one of my fondest memory so much thanks I thank them for a few minutes stay well and we're thrilled to join us this morning to you so stay you will never you will never get a bad from breeding for me ever ever yeah holder thank you it happened at what age you know you want now I'd like to get all right stay right there I know Michael is super excited about this what Broadway smash is coming to your home via Disney plus this summer it's next W.

A. as the Tonys why Jill brought by the Kentucky office of highway safety they say that people don't change Washington Washington changes people and I can't say that Washington has changed a lot but I will say that this man has not in my opinion been changed by Washington senator rand Paul how are you senator very good thanks from me on guys Hey thanks for being here let's start with several questions for you we appreciate the time one of I wanted to say this I do going off the heels of last night's state of the union I keep waiting I keep waiting for this as an American citizen as a taxpayer but I never hear it and I doubt that I ever will the spending in Washington it's out of control so much but the the answer just can't be odd that's Washington it at the wedding household in my house so we have things that we need to pay for we recently made adjustments we cut direct TV made all kinds of adjustments just to try to get by but it is never like that with Washington is there ever going to come a time where we can worry about our house worry about America's finances quit giving aid to every single country there is and try to get our house in order before helping others well this is one of the points I made throughout impeachment was that we don't have any money to give to Ukraine so holding up some money didn't bother me too much for the cut we don't have it to give word trillion dollars in the hole annually were twenty three trillion dollars in all totally in the constitution in no way shape or form ever says we can tax Americans and send the money to another country our founding fathers would roll over in their graves if they thought we were actually sending your taxpayer dollars to other countries so that was one sort of unique aspect in looking at this but as far as looking at spending overall I've been introducing the penny plan to balance the budget for years and showing people how easy it would be if we actually had any kind of courage at all if you cut one percent for the budget each year for five years the budget balances that's actually got worse in the last couple years now I'm having a call to two pennies plan but if you cut two pennies out of every dollar for five years you can balance the budget now how many people do you have with you ran on that on that mark I mean I I guess I don't understand why we're not all look we all like the programs that help our people out but at some point it's too much the deficit is out of control and that needs to be talked about more five zero Democrats and I have about half the Republicans a little less than half his fifty three Republicans I usually get about twenty to twenty three votes as far as voting for the penny plan to balance the budget and this is sort of true is that there are no Democrats are concerned about the deficit but then again only half the Republicans did no Republican campaign on it they all come home and tell you yes I'm conservative and we need to do something about spending in debt and borrowing but only about half of may have the courage because frankly everybody wants something for nothing or a lot of people do but this is the the row above sort of socialism and all the things that you know offer you something for nothing is that people need to realize that ultimately you do pay you to pay through taxes or you pay through higher interest rates and borrowing were you pay through losing value of your dollar as as goods cost more ultimately you have to pay for these nothing in life is really free senator Paul one thing I find ironic last night watching the the state of the union is as president trump is touting some accomplishments things the Democrats purport to believe in low unemployment rising wages border security and I thought to myself there's a president up there that they could have been working with for the last three and a half years they could take credit on some of these accomplishments and have a chance of beating him in November instead they spent three and a half years trying to get rid of him possibly cementing his reelection yeah when you look at the stone cold faces and everybody sitting on their hands over there they wouldn't even clap for god or prayer or so I think it's kinda you know we got we got a big obstacle your you won't you won't clap for America god in prayer saying but now there's a bitterness over there and particular among the house managers the ones who are the most partisan who tried the impeachment process boy they sat on their hands with sour looks old time the only disappointment was is I love it when Bernie is there when the president says something about socialism because I like to sing get red in the face and smoke come out of his ears get all mad about all these talking about my socialism you know but that it's important we do mention and I you know I read a book about socialism this year my wife and I the case against socialism because I think too many people think that you can have a benign form of it or a democratic form of it but inevitably it leads to authoritarianism violence starvation famine and it you know probably a dozen times or more in the twentieth century that was the end result of socialism we have to be very wary of these people offer you something for nothing we had Julie cinder rainfall we had Julie rocky Adams on this week on the show and she was talking about genital mutilation that's happened in the Kentucky to the tune as many as two thousand teenage girls just this past year she's trying to pass legislation that would make this criminal did you know that was going on I we were shocked by hearing this week we know when you hear gentle of mutilation you think you think middle eastern countries some religious foreign countries but he was happening here in Kentucky well what are your thoughts on that well you know I'm surprised by the number also but if it is going on I think it should be stopped through legal means I think we already would have legal means of protecting of it's happening to children we already have child safety in place and well not for much government this is government I am for parents should not be a lot of user children and to me it sounds like abusive I'm not sure of the extent of the problem but if it does exist absolutely that's a role for government step in senator Paul I've got I've got to first false statement a personal statement the other big music lover I believe that you're a big fan of the band rush and we lease Ricky retrieve we recently lost Neil Peart so I want to say my condolences to you on that if you if you are in fact that big of a fan was when I was a kid and until they threaten to sue me then I became less of a fan I didn't know if the if the if that stayed with you or not but yeah I can understand but let's talk about the impeachment as it did today with the impeachment what's going to happen because it as a tax payers an American citizen all I've seen so far is a bunch of people yelling back and forth wasting tax dollars wasting government time doing all this on the taxpayers dime outside of just president trump getting a Astrid next to his batting average does anything come out of this or has in fact just been one big waste of time in your opinion I think the irony is is they accused him of using government to go after his political opponent and that's exactly what they did they abuse the impeachment process to go after their political opponents of their no better than than what they accuse him is for something good coming out of it I think the one thing that we need to do is we need to reform the fives the foreign intelligence surveillance court the fact that they took the FBI came to them lied seventeen times and started this whole Russia collusion investigation which became the mall or investigation which became the impeachment this sort of all originated out of an abuse of power and abuse of the secret court system so one of the amendments that I'm gonna put for next month is that investigation of campaigns or issue groups or policy or speech shouldn't occur in secret courts that are meant to be for spying on people who might attack as you know I'm fine with buying on people in Libya but I'm not fine was flying on Americans without due process and so what we should really learn from this is what the FISA court did in giving warrants to go after trump's campaign should never ever happen again to any political party it's too much power too we really need to restrict to restrain the power of our intelligence community not spot Americans and not to go after investigate campaigns of you think they've done something wrong you should go to a regular court this is a public federal court where both sides get an attorney and that's the only way you can really get justice one thing I found odd even disturbing senator during the process besides the process itself is you guys finally get a chance to ask questions and there's the Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court screening them explain exactly what happened there you know I was disturbed by that too because it's I didn't ledger accuse anybody of being the whistleblower I simply put two names forward that are said to be friends of each other one of them's on the staff of Adam Schiff the guy the house manager who's impeaching the president and then he was friends with another guy at the National Security Council which works for the president then it turns out there's actually six members of the National Security Council that all know each other the vin men brothers member lieutenant colonel than men and his identical twin work over there which is extraordinary and then there's this guy's year malam and then there's Sean miss go and then there's two more people on Adam Schiff team but those stories are in the news reports are that they were colluding in conspiring to impeach the president years before this happened but the phone call was merely an excuse in a in an elaborate plan they had to impeach the president if that is true that should be investigated and should not be protected by the whistleblower statute in general on for the whistleblower statute I'm a defender of Edward Snowden I think we should bring him home and make some kind of deal with them because he reveals something that was unconstitutional that American government spying on millions and millions of American citizens so I think he is a great whistle blower but many of the people who defend this current whistleblower also want to put Edward Snowden in jail for life to this sort of a double standard here in some fake outrage on their part but I don't think there was a lower should be fired but I do think that nobody should get a plot to bring down the president accused him of something that simply is a policy difference and then have not be questioned at all to be on question and get a free pass talking to rand Paul can you tell us one thing that's that good can happen here in the next couple of months before November and we're all thinking that the bridges have been incinerated and nothing's gonna get done then I'm gonna get.

Has China lost Taiwan?

Has China lost Taiwan?

"Taiwan's president secured secured a second term over the weekend started scenes of the woman who stood up to China because China always believe China. Taiwan's recent election is widely seen as a watershed moment a referendum between Wayne. Two very different choices saw in win. She's the president since two thousand sixteen. She promised to protect Taiwan's freedoms from an increasingly assertive. He said he's an autocratic Beijing or the nationalist combing Tung came to the opposition which stressed causes ties with Beijing. The result a landslide two cy and her ruling independence leading Democratic Progressive Party. It was her warnings about China that hit home. We've voters this threat Israel with these respect from China situation has changed you. You cannot exclude the possibility of a war. And it's high invading. Taiwan is something that is going to be very costly fled China Taiwan's president saw in win on the basis now. She scored move odds than any other presidential candidate since Taiwan hi one began holding democratic elections in Nineteen ninety-six. So why has Beijing's efforts to control. Taiwan was it backfired and we'll China Now back off from what it sees as a renegade province remember most nations including the United States and Australia. We adhere to the one China policy which means we formally acknowledge Beijing's claims over Taiwan but what can Washington and camera do to help this vibrant democracy of twenty ninety four million in the face of arising China. Natasha Qassam is research fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy where she directs the annual Lowy Institute suit poll. She's a former Australian diplomat. And he wants is emeritus professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University and author of how to defend Australia. He's a former deputy defense secretary. Natasha Hugh Welcome to Iran. To be with you thanks for having is time now Natasha. Why has China lost the battle for public opinion in Taiwan? Look I do think there's a real question as to whether China ever had a chance in this respect. You've got a longstanding up position in Taiwan to unification with China. You've got a long standing position to one country. Two Systems the model that China developed in the eighties Fulbari Taiwan and Hong Kong. And of course we see the problematic way that's playing out in Hong Kong today but the most important issue here I think has been the emergence of a unique Taiwanese identity entity. This is what has really changed over the last decade the majority of Taiwanese people they see themselves as Taiwanese and in part this is in opposition to a growing authoritarian -tarian reach from China but in pilots a product of Taiwan's transition to democracy. It's unique history in terms of its different periods of colonization and indigenous peoples. I think today we can say that. This far more that divides Taiwan and China then unites them. Is that growing sense of independence in Taiwan. And Natasha you mentioned Hong Kong and how that was supposed to be the roadmap for China's One Country Two Systems policy the clearly rebuked in these elections hugh. How does Beijing you all these? Well I think they must be very gloomy very concerned and I think getting pretty angry because I completely agree with Tushar I think the elections very significant because it confirms assumes absolutely that the prospect of an eventual consensual reunification of Taiwan agreeing to be absorbed or reabsorbed helped by the mainland looks more and more remark and the problem for everyone including for Taiwan is that Beijing is very unlikely to accept except that Beijing for Beijing reunification as I sit bringing Taiwan back into China is an essential part of their agenda of Xi. Jinping's agenda to for the rejuvenation as he calls it off of China overcoming of that century of humiliation which which began with the opium wars lower back in the forties and which she has set himself to overcome overturn. I think for him getting Taiwan back as he I would say it is. There is nothing more important to him. Nothing more important to the Communist Party and so we have The seats of a real tragedy because as Natasha says it's clear and clear that the Taiwanese don't want to be part of China and it says clearest safe obtain the Chinese determined to make it part of I hear you say Washington Santon. Sorry Beijing won't accept Taiwan's growing assertiveness but hasn't by aging conduct here been counterproductive. I think of John is if it's to intensify military not exercises around the Taiwan Strait. If it's to US light diplomatically. A Taiwan a hasn't that just stiffened the resolve of the tonys. ESO expected. Has I think I think that's been effector I think is Natasha. Says I think what's happened in. Hong Kong has has disabused anyone in Taiwan of any illusions about what one-country-two-systems three two systems would really mean. If it was applied to talk to Taiwan I think the growing authoritarian nature of the Chinese Communist Party ruled in China itself under under Shuzhen Ping Has Added to that. Boils I think as Natasha says again. That that the the the long term development of Taiwan itself Tallinn's entity that the the evolution of a very vibrant democracy there Meant that perhaps. Whatever Beijing done even if Beijing it'd be much less frightening that it has been it still would have been unlikely that Taiwan would move voluntarily to do what Beijing once and it's actually is hugh why wrought out here and he's not alone? We've had on this program over the last few years Professor Jon Meacham from the University of Chicago. The argument here is that not only will China be much more powerful awful than it is today but it will also remain deeply committed to making Taiwan part of China. I think she's deadline. Is this attender of the Communist revolution. Which would be a twenty four nine in other words? Tom Is on China. Saad your response. I disagree that Taiwan is really significant priority for Xi Jinping's China. But I think it's important when we think about what their highest priority is and for me that is always the domestic legitimacy of the potty state and and so by Beijing's policies primarily directed at that domestic audience. They might be failing in Taiwan but suddenly what they ought designed to do is to demonstrate two people in China that Beijing holds all the cards that they have a able to exit military pressure on Taiwan that they can exclude Taiwan from international organizations and that is the highest priority and under Xi Jinping's China. I think the hotline inflexible policies will just continue for godless. The effect that they have in Taiwan. But at the same time I do think it's a self fulfilling prophecy to argue that China will become so powerful so we should roll over and do nothing and therefore it will allow be allowed to become even more all powerful in military and economic times. I think this is almost a given Alpha China. But it's not a given in terms of China's power. China's power has been restricted in the region winslow in many ways many countries including Australia do not recognize the ages over the as traders say. China hasn't succeeded in achieving. Its goals in the South China Sea. It hasn't succeeded in closing bases in Japan. There's that in South Korea in numerous ways. I wouldn't say that time is on China side if anything I I think. China as a rational actor recognizes the cost of a protracted war a much higher than the cost of their patients on that knowledge has as Shea Jingping pink overreach. The embroiled other countries led by the US but including Australia to a newly skeptical view of Chana. I look clearly Thomas. China's Powell grows as system becomes more authoritarian as the way it seeks to exhibit influence throughout the region becomes to put it politely a more assertive a lot of countries. You Niger and beyond becoming more and more worried about what. China's power and hatch on is going to use its power mains over the next few decades but that I think we'd be too optimistic to imagine that China is somehow becoming a self limiting problem. I do think Jonah's power has grown. I think it's influences growing there. It's I still true. Of course. There's Natasha is that there are lots of things at China would like it. It hasn't yet got but I'm more pessimistic than she is that about China's capacity not to get its way increasingly as time goes on and it's worth bearing in mind all the things that China does get that yes Not everyone accepts what China wants to do in the just south China Sea but Australia. Itself hasn't undertaken serious remove navigation operations Australia and self does not acknowledge China as a strategic rival. The United States does Japan treating China increasingly cool. She asleep as it becomes less and less confident about Donald Trump's America. And we'll push you. It's Responsibilities towards Japan onto the treaty. So I think actually China is doing pretty well. I think we've made a big mistake. To underestimate raced tonight. But China's resolve in its capacity to use. Its Influence to get what it wants. I guess. Hugh Watt for my new and Tasha Qassam from from lowy and we're talking about Taiwan and China in the wake of the all in democracies election widely seen as a rebuke to Beijing. The TASHA you say Beijing's going to weaken Taiwan's democracy house. Oh look I think I said that it was going to try and I think it is trying in many ways. It's trying through disinformation Ryan and bypassing more media outlets in Taiwan and then controlling the narrative in that way it is certainly trying to infiltrate grassroots organizations like temple organizations sations and farmers and fisheries groups. The thing is that Beijing is very much moving away. I think from trying to support. Just one side of politics. The Guangdong Minggong which has always been seen as more friendly towards Beijing insofar as has been unsuccessful because the dog is not able to as. We've all of the reasons since we've already outlined. They are not able to deliver Taiwan in any way because of the way of public opinion against China. So now I believe that Beijing is trying to undermine undermine the democracy itself to undermine people's faith in institutions trying to essentially mess it up I think the best expression I've had tended into Crimea so that you have a government paralyzed a government that people do not trust and in that way the system would be much weaker. You Natasha to agree that Beijing is going to try awaken Taiwan's democracy and certainly badging will increase the pressure to open talks on reunification. I suppose the question here is wise. China so sensitive about Taiwan one. I mean think about it Taiwan or Formosa as it was earlier known. It's only been part of China for something like four out of the past one hundred twenty twenty five years since Japanese colonization nineteen ninety-five four out of one hundred twenty five and those four years when the nationalists who fled to Taiwan. They were running the mainland alien so why the sensitivity. He what. We'll Tom Because one hundred and twenty five years is not very long time in the way of China's paypal and the Chinese government see themselves CBS and has precisely one hundred and twenty five years that I see correctly in some ways as being a very black period in the history and that the the great mission of the Communist Party has been to bring China out of that as I said before the rejuvenation of the Chinese people. It's hard to underestimate. Overestimate the the emotional power Al behind this idea of China returning to its previous position and Taiwan has become a and the Chinese Communist Party has made Taiwan into a a symbol of everything bad that happened to China before and everything that Diane resolved to fix and the way in which they they put Hong Kong back into into the fold the YM which have grown their economy the way in which they have reasserted China's military power and have trying at least to reassert itself the parish cultural pass at a speak. All of that is part of the deal but Taiwan is in a sense that the jewel in the crown for them and so I think the the political political and to a certain extent the emotional fright that the Taiwan issue carries does make it absolutely central to the Communist. Party's not just its own sense of itself but it's confidence that it can continue command. The loyalty and achieved legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese people as what Communist Party delivers not just in terms of prosperity but in terms of China's dignity and position in the world symbolized by Taiwan that is so central to its legitimacy as the government of China Anna. And does that mean Natasha Qassam. That is now a very real danger that the listen Beijing takes from size relection. Is that the only way. Taiwan will ever a unify with mainland China. As at the end of a gun. Look that's entirely possible but I have to say I'm not convinced that as an argument mainly because we like to think think of China's military palate in terms of it being this very quick victory. RV Taiwan because they are coming late outgunned in that sense but none nothing about this would be. It would be very difficult to take Taiwan in terms of its geography and even an invasion is really just the beginning. When you have twenty four a million people who don't want to be a part of your country you have? Refugees flocking to other countries in the region including Australia. You'll have resistance in the streets. You'll have disruption to global supply chains at which Taiwan lies at. Its hot this is not an easy proposition. It is laden with

We've got Tony Mero with us today. Tony is a colleague of mine. A friend of mine in the in the industry works for <hes> strike King Lose lose hundred specialty. They're all owned by by one company. They're all family and he does a lot for them. He's I I consider him. The workhorse but the coolest far about Tony being here is kind of unique for us. Tony is is a faithful listener to the podcast and <hes> as a guy. Who Does the podcast every week? It's cool to know a guy who actually likes to listen to what's up T- oh how you doing man Moore and Mr Steve How are you. I'm well do glad added that you taking the time to hang out with us today <hes> and so so Tony listened to the podcast so he knows our little he knows our little deal of new with introducing <hes> this other guy that hangs out with this so I'm giving Tony the privilege of introducing <hes> my counterpart over here today go for it to you ladies and gentlemen I would like to introduce the one the only Mr Brandon Brandon Broach. How does it feel to be called by your real name this morning brandon? It feels official like this is real. Now everything up to this point has been just practice is what you guys have been working towards since since day. One of the PODCAST PODCAST is calling brand by the name brand. How many different iterations have we had up until probably twenty? I would say at least twenty yeah well. It's crazy. People now refer to me is these things that he calls me on the street be Roach coach Bora Bora Bora broach different things out there and so good Tony so glad you're here man and it's nice that we got to come hang out in Orlando this week. Dude it is hot. It is swampy swampy for sure. It's actually so so we're recording this early. In the day I just I just walked over here to meet with you guys and it's beautiful out there right now but give it about forty five minutes and it will be what you just described pretty swampy so you trying to tell us that you've got the swamp but you know if if I was to go do that walk in forty five minutes that would be the yeah. We are in Orlando this week. If you guys don't know the <hes> like I said Tony Works in the industry. I've worked in industry my whole career so we're at a show that is a an industry show <hes> where a lot of new products are <hes> launched and introduced <hes> but mainly. It's just it's it's a week where a typical black any industry where it's a convention <hes> and so we we saw a good opportunity to come hang out with some of our folks and and so I'm glad we're getting to do some podcasts weaken hopefully. Hopefully <hes> you know we'll maybe we'll share some of the stuff we sneak peek some of the stuff that we saw this week but you know talking about Industry Tony <hes> I got to thinking about you and I've known you for about a year and a half now now and just kind of sitting back watching you work and doing your thing in the industry in this thought came up and as kind of peeling it back a little bit for with Brandon is we both of us all of us. We could've chose any the industry to work in <hes> Tony's very talented guy very driven guy <hes> as as I myself and I don't I don't I don't say that as as an arrogant statement or bragging statement I say that is like we're grinders. You know it was just what we are. We you just get after it and <hes> but we chose any industry to work in. We could have got after anything. I want the outdoor Industry Tony Light. Why why did you choose the outdoor industry? May I think thank you know all of us. Fitness Room probably could agree that we want to work somewhat in with something that we love. I mean that I think that's really everybody's dream since their kid you know what would what do you want to be. When you grow up well I mean I want to be something that I enjoy WanNa? Be around things that I enjoy honestly as I've gotten into my career over a little bit. It's become more and more like wanting to be around people that I wanna work with but you know as it starting no. I'm I'm I'm I'm still pretty young. I've been outdoor industry about five years. Now I think in I started specifically in hunting side and within the last couple of years it's gotten into fishing as well but in a grand scope things. It's you know it's just the outdoors in general and it's honestly to dream come true yeah. I love what you say. Tony is as we all dream about doing something that that we're not just good at that we love and so <hes> let's see that would have been my exact answer if I was on the other side <hes> because I remember vividly <hes> in college saying I've always wanted. I always wanted to fish growing up for as long as I can think and I remember thinking you know what I don't WanNa just fish. I want my career to be around fishing. I'm going to the fishing industry. I'M GONNA go get a job in the fishing industry and so very similar there but the cool thing about having you here again. I'm Tony and I want to kind of peel it back. A little bit is most of our guests <hes> if Gaza if you've if you've been listening our guests a lot of them are Gaza we <hes> you know we've met in our lives in that we kind of a Meyer there <hes> <hes> their scope of work and kind of what they've achieved and and the mentality of how they achieved it and what it looks like in their lives now in in so most of the people we've had on on our podcasts are all the people we've had our podcast really kind of an older than us kind of you know I've been been through the gauntlet per se and and now what I like to say now on the other side of God's faithfulness in her life and they've seen God's promises in her life come to fruition so it's much easier from them. Come and talk about it much easier easier for them to come and share their story but but only thing I love about Tony being guys like you said Tony's Tony's younger. Tony's you know new into to his career. He's he's dead in the middle of the grind I mean. And he's he tony doesn't know the path yet in it so it's it's every day it's like trail brought blazing and so tell us a little bit about like what's going through your head as you know in your day to day pursuit of of what you're doing and while you're doing it well. I guess if you were speaking from career standpoint. I try to basically give every day as much as I can and I don't think there's anything more you can do that. I mean just get input in that sweat equity and that's what I tried to decent day one and there's as I've been really blessed and a lot of different ways so far in in this outdoor industry just by the people people that I've met in in the people that have helped me do things and learn things and you know I I can't I sit here and look at myself now and I started straight out of college. I didn't know I didn't think I knew Dane a Dang thing about anything and business. I still have so much to learn but I feel like I started to have a little bit of grasp of you. Know what things are. How things were a little bit in the industry but you know from from a personal standpoint when he started talking about faith and all that you know in my life is Kinda been you know I was a grew up with the Christian family and my mom was a big supporter of that particularly and you know you know went through middle school? Confirmation mation in high school was involved in our local church there and everything and Kinda in college. I I just I didn't I didn't have a close faith. I Guess Faith Group there that I wanted to church with or anything like that and in not that I you know I don't know if I want to say drifted away or anything but just didn't become a huge piece of my day to day life and all that and I was fortunate enough that you know a few years back I was living in the Atlanta area at the time <hes> one of the guys that I knew there is actually he was my boss for a little while and now we're still good friends. You know they were real adamant about inviting me to <hes> to church and they they went to a very large church in town over there and you know bit by bit started becoming you know you know go on their weekly in being a part of monthly community group gatherings that they had in the area there and that really kinda got. Let me back on the right path of you know wanting wanting to have a relationship with God and you know talking about it with people and you know after moving from there and kind of getting that back in my life and when meeting you Stephen You know we talked talked a little bit and you know you were familiar with you. Know the Church that I had gone to in Atlanta and we we've had some really good conversations and <hes> like I said I don't feel like I've you know I've got. I've got a lot of work to do in that area of my life I feel like I know that that's something that needs to be a part of it and something I need to keep working towards whether it's personal life within my career I just gotTa get a sort of keep that in your mind and don't don't forget it no matter where who you're hanging out with or. Where you live at I live in Atlanta anymore so I don't? I don't get to see those people on on a daily basis. Yeah I love.

This is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the killing of OJ Simpson's of ex wife and Ron Goldman Ron Goldman's father Fred was on good Morning, America, and never goes away. It's always there. The pain is always there. The losses always there today is just that much more intent. It's hard for me to imagine twenty five years. Would be fifty now and the coal would be sixty right. The copen system. Now, Ron's, brother sister Kim has a podcast starting today, and she really hasn't done many interviews, but she was also good Morning America took really good care of me. Always making sure that I was taking care of and protected and, and following along the show was never alone. But looked out for me. This is what her podcast is all about. Michael for all these years. It's been a little frustrating that there's been so much about this case that is made all the television series in the fictional approaches that I thought it was important to go right to the source on these are people that live very similar lifestyle that my dad, and I did in very different directions, and I wanted to understand how they were doing what they were thinking how they've lived their life how they function in the aftermath of all of it, and I wanted to go right to the source. She says she'd love to get to the jurors and ask them what they think. Now, what do you think they'd say? Because they were angry people back then they were angry at the LA police department. Yeah. You know what I don't think if you were to get any of the jurors to talk? I bet they say they would have voted the same vote the same way today. I think they would now also on this today show, your good pal. Alley stroke was on history at the Tonys I actress or actor in a wheelchair the winner, Tony she's in Oklahoma. And they asked her on the today show how she felt about winning a Tony award was wilds. You know you hear your name and you never know how it's going to feel and I just immediately felt so motion and to go out on the stage radio sitting there six thousand people standing for you. It was just a dream come true about this. She's in a wheelchair. So as a youngster is something that she dreamed about performing on a Broadway stage, wondered if I could ever do that, because it didn't see. Myself in any of the performers, and that goes across the board, you know, on, you know, on screen or in, in movies, you're looking for yourself to sort of give you some kind of hope and confidence that you can do it, too. So that was for all those young people who have a dream and wanna see that. Oh, it is possible. Good stuff. Right. I mean, yes, you look on his screen and doesn't see or Broadway, does anybody else in a wheelchair. There is a viral video that was going around after the Tonys of a little boy, who in a wheelchair watching the Tonys and apparently soon as she what he won. He screamed like, yeah. Right. And then the mom whips out the camera. And he goes, like, that's me. Wow. And then they brought him out during this interview today show. Yes. Oh, it was beautiful, but, you know kid. He's like, you know, I want to be a chef and they're saying, well, anybody could be a chef doesn't matter what your situation is you have the passion, you can do it. So it was really inspiring by the way. Also on our on, on the shows a lot of good guests today. This was also good Morning America headed the fence attorney in the missing.

There was just one bag that had blood of his estranged wife who's now missing. That is an anomaly, that I cannot yet account for and also had said earlier, right? He said that we had this sound bite earlier. They don't believe that it's your client. I don't and has he said, I did not kill my wife. Well, we did some people killed in the goal of innocent until proven guilty, entitled to the presumption of innocence land. But I hear you I would say it doesn't look good.

"They did all the, the one of the side bits was. They did James corden saying a little bit. I think a little bit of this Dada. He was James in the bathroom feeling some anxiety. Take a listen to him singing that, while I find a clip of Allie singing that's really great though. You know, you're right. When you say that the Tonys our show that are how award shows should go, and I think another big part of that is that these people are live performers it never ceases to amaze me when I watch award shows with some of the best actors and actresses in the world, and they stand there, and they cannot deliver a speech, a three or even just a three line introduction. I know. And, and they threw through rehearsal and mind like a deer in headlights standing there they just don't know what to do. And it's because they performed for people in front of a camera on a stage like it's just them the idea of being in front of all those people is so alarming to that, where you have people who are on Broadway. And that's what they live for right? And I mean, let's be real, they're they are harder workers theatre actors are harder. It's like crazy every single night doing that stuff. I can't even fathom that. No. Yeah. It was amazing. It was amazing. So let's see, let's listen to a little bit of James corden singing that doing that bathroom bet. And hopefully I can find a clip of Allie Stoker's singing, because it is it is something else..

"The president's current seriously and they're starting to take enforcement at their southern border. Seriously? This is important to both countries Mexico doing more than the Democrats who work behind me on Capitol Hill on securing our southern border. You got to get that gig in about the Democrats to Capitol Hill that was pretty strong done more than Democrats. That's that was Kellyanne Conway this morning. Boy, she got a couple of cups of coffee go on. That's a great line. Like let's true. Democrats have done. Wow. And a lot happened over the weekend, obviously. So we wrap up the show on Friday head into the weekend. We're like, okay, the president still threatening tariffs. They'll go into effect what Monday today. Then all of a sudden, we find out that the Mexican contingent has been at the White House, the during the entire UK trip for the president, right? With everybody talking with everyone, including him stayed there the entire time. And then it's announced Saturday night that they will send five thousand plus troops to their southern border to stop Central American immigrants coming in legally, Woohoo, and then this morning, they update it and say they're on their way already some of early arrived five thousand originally. They only had like four hundred troops there. So now they get five thousand and then the president said, there's also other hidden items in this pack that they've signed this agreement. And he said anywhere along the line Mexico Beck's down as to what they've promised that five percent tariff goes into effect almost immediately. So all the Democrats who complained about you shouldn't mix tariffs and immigration. It's the two should not meet. Well, what are they saying this morning? Who anybody anybody? Nothing nothing. Silence. You're right. Well, Nancy puts together some devious comet to make. And then everybody will else will just reiterate it this, this is why they're just such hypocrites. I mean they criticized at the end of last week, the idea of tariffs. Okay. So we struck a deal we won't have to implement tariffs and get Mexico to do. We want anyway. Right. What's the response? We knew he'd back up the tariffs. It impact the terror. We just said. One of the first things he said was, you know, that tariff goes right back into place that they dropped the ball on their side. So. It's it's you can never make them happy. You clearly can't enough that they're, they're miserable. Miserable miserable. Lot of people, you can't make them happy, and look at them just listen to how whiny Adam Schiff is Jerry Nadler, Chucky Schumer Nancy Pelosi, all they do is whine. Stop whining and do something. So while all this progress is happening the, the Mexican border and immigration and tackling. That what are they doing? What's the house doing today? We're going to take up obstruction. Again, god. That's right. They got Muller people coming in. Let's open that can of worms. What did you come up with some ideas, they help the country as that's out instead of worrying about impeachment. God. Oh, sorry. You're right. I got attacked. They're talking about Chucky Schumer and those people, I hit does it does it to me, too. I get it. Yawn, by the way, what is up, but it's like the year the hiker getting it really is. And I don't know. Why is it because we're hearing more of these stories now it could be it. Fortunately, they're all getting found, which is a good thing. But if you're going hiking. Okay, and you're going alone should not be inexperienced acre.

"Right. Tonight with Clive Davis that everything tell me something about what's the Grammy experiences. Like just being a part of it. Well. Obviously if you perform backstage meeting and being able to talk to the people that you've been admiring for years that that means a lot that means a lot. I think at one particular event. We had the chance to sit down to talk with Halle Berry, and that just blew our minds never heard of her. Not a musician. But does it matter. No. You know, I mean just just be in the same room and with with classic people. You know, it's not just music royalty to your point. We we met Sarah Vaughan and work with Sarah Vaughan back on the block right back on the block Quincy Jones. I mean, that's just incredible stuff right there. You know, you don't often do that a lot of the conversations which are just going on backstage to your point. I remember a time where I ended up in the conversation. Just for example, with Mariah Carey and ambi- artists DeAngelis and stick was might have been Garth Brooks. But everyone is just convenient backstage. Just oh, I love your music. I heard oh, your soul. And so I've always wanted to meet you. Yeah. Oh, I want you to work right album year. Now, we're talking. Okay, Michael, it seems like a lot of deals a concentrated backstage. Absolutely. Absolutely. You better believe it because the excitement is in the air and tomorrow is on everyone's mind. It absolutely is in the air. And that's why I still believe in. What is tomorrow? We'll there's a non televised portion and they're eighty four categories this year. And I assume maybe seventy of them will be given away at the non televised portion what does that ceremony like? It's it's like. Well, I should say it's the opposite of what's on TV. Yes. It just start. It goes. Now, we begin in a literally read nominees for the best microphone, whatever just. They just abstract categories. It's a really abstract ones. But. And I was saying in the break, I believe in my personal opinion is that's the real Grammy ceremony. Why do you say that because it really focuses on the world of music itself and the intricacies categories are really they really get into things that make you say, wow, technical engineering. Exactly, you know, classical. Spoken word. Yeah. Yeah. So it's it's a me. That's the real the real one because it really is about the the work itself. The televised isn't about the work. It's about the artists. It's about the brands. It's. Yes. Show razzle dazzle. And if you wanna see the difference, just how far the Grammies have grown. Remember, they both used to be at the Grammys and the Oscars were both at the shrine the Grammys has turned into a rock concert. And are you going to do is watch the four Emmys Tonys Grammys Oscars and you'll see while the Grammies have really gone there taken down cessation, exactly, bro. They've taken it the people's choice, which one is at the Beverly is really small and intimate. They just had it that long as at the people's choice blues. The people's choice tables. Going close. But it's maybe once Golden Globe and Golden Globes. They have the tables. Yeah. That's it. Exactly intimate that is because it's really getting drunk. But it is about it's about the industry. The the the what has happened. Now. It is about the extravaganza. It really is. And. Like it. You know, whatever, you know, what? I mean. I I like it. But I'm like, I said, I I I'm a I'm a deeper industry kind of guy. But I have it in its context. That's why it doesn't bug me. And I don't come back. You know, because you know, who I give out money you to every year. Michael Jackson's off the wall on that's true. Yeah. Every year. Music is. So I don't want to say. I'll say they're just straight up stealing. But it's it's remiscent. Everything seems to spool back from Michael Jackson's off the wall album. Especially in our MBBS. Absolute talk about Bruno Bruno Mars and not pay homage. Michael Jackson, Wally that was the game changer right there. Goodness was the one eighty nine years old speak game changer. We've got another minute happy before we go to this break. We have those top four categories. We have record of the year album of the year song of the year. Best new artist are the numerical categories in order very quickly for people. Don't know. What's the difference between record of the year and song of the year song goes to the writers? And the publishers record year goes to the artist producer. Label almost so many people up there. But really it goes to the artist and the producers now not all these voting members can vote on all the categories. Can they know you get a source of eight oh six? It's more than that. Now. Everybody has a vote on those first four. But you can't just go through and Martin. Yeah. There might be there might be. Is probably like seven or year. It is seven or eight. Yeah. After that, you can go to discourage you from voting and maybe auto know the country category. Right. Not even in that industry. Exactly. And that's what that's about. So you you really focus on on your John you multi genre person like me actually do have interest. Some of those other things country. You could do the gospel. That's right. I have depending on what the year was that. That was either involved in or listening to like some things I'm familiar with some things. I'm just not familiar with you know, just I don't get. But they don't they don't allow you to just go through every they don't do that. You really do have to hone in. When I was there. They had a a selection committee who would determine I would say the nominees for the top four categories. This was mid to late nineties. They might have changed it. So they wouldn't have just these these ridiculous artists showing up in the top four. Three rounds? Okay. The three rounds. Yeah. Okay. It used to be two when I was there. Okay. So you labels, and that gets into what we've discussed previously these voting blocks. You know, you laugh our vote for Sony. Right. Exactly. You said may like you.

"I just I the only reason to be to see whether or not it works because I have no aptitude for it. Let me introduce the hour here. Standing up for Milwaukee. This is the Mark Belling late afternoon show on news talk seven thirty w s video there the the roof going down I live abroad. I dunno little over a mile. More than that slightly more than a mouth for the Bradley center. It was nine hundred two on Sunday morning. You think I heard it or not what do you think? Paul said he'll say, yes. Well, I don't know. First of all, I forgot about it at I even made a point on Saturday night the thing. Hey, go outside and see if you hear anything I wasn't going to be one of these groups that would drive over there. Because I knew that the video I could've turned on the television or just watch that I knew that that video it'd be better than anything that I would see. It's like nine thirty at DOD. That'd be. I actually think I heard something thinking back, but you know, I got the trolley at everything else begging around. And who knows what bang and bop is anything right other. Anyway. Do I want to conclude the point that I was vacant before the language thing? I just think, you know, some people have some people's minds work in certain ways that they have an aptitude for some things and others though. I mean, you'll see some people they can speak four or five languages that. Just bizarre to be. But it's common among people that are European in part because they need to. You travel from one country to another you gotta know what the languages. I mean, you go from Europe has open borders. They don't have sharing the same language. The closest thing they have to universal language is English, which is commonly spoken everywhere. But I had two years of Spanish in high school and one year in college, and I can count. It just let it hardly stocked with me. And even when I was going to the classes, I could memorize the words, but I couldn't think or put together sentences as thought said some people just can't. I mean, I'd like to see whether or not it worked enough to the point that a guy who has no aptitude for it. Could do it. I just I just think if when I have more time on my hands. There's other things going to be more interested in doing that. Now, if you're gonna if you're gonna retire to Costa Rica, retired of the south of France or something. That'd be different. I can't imagine living someplace for you can't speak the language at all for an extended period of time. Covers some concert news. And then get to the weirdest story of the day is the Tonys Alinsky house story. Do you know about the twenties Alinsky house? You don't know anything about this? You don't know anything about this? I'm gonna keep repeating this. You anything about football either. I got football pick correct again. I only Br I know, but you don't have six at a row. The only reason I bring this up is I getting no praise of Eddie. What are this six zero is? Maybe it's just the audience at so many in a row wrong. The people that used to these streaks. But. I know if I had lost six zero I would beginning unending grief from people I've six at a row, that's pretty good. That's just how people are though. They're much more likely to make fun of you. If you do something stupid than praise you if you do something intelligent. It's isn't that? Why are people like that? Do you think you're like that? I think if you ever got sitter. All right. First of all, that's not plausible. You could see it. I could get six in a row, right? As I've demonstrated. You could never get sick Senator row. Right. You know, why you couldn't get six zero right? You you're resisted to this you either you'll know when I tell you why why I'm right? I think you get too cocky. You're not humbled by how difficult this is. Didn't you when you bought your streak? Didn't you shoot up your both and say that you had you had a dead singer of game. I actually I had the eagles this past weekend. Did I actually thought they were going to beat New Orleans straight up? They didn't get it was I getting eight points or seven I remember no eight and the the they covered they lost by only six but the actually look like they were going to win the game. They lost. Don't you? I talk about this factor. All the time among certain friends when I go down to the OT, which is in the state of Illinois they lost because of the x factor. Epa talking about the the expert factor is the same factor is the ex cub factor. I swear does it seem to you that if you go back over the last fifty years of sports, and he's somebody screw something up to cost thirteen championship. There's a Chicago component in there that person's history all Shan, Jeffries, an expert. I mean, how do you let the pogo through heads? He catches up. All do they go in and score a touchdown. I think they do that a lot of time on the clock. It will right through his heads. Yeah. That's but they were they were trying to slow slow it down. So that the clock would run which actually helped them they could've run a running play in their head. They were going through New Orleans almost it wasn't like a sieve. They had a couple of penalties. Keep moving in there. But the saints had that look of we're blowing this they just had that look at we Packer fans. Remember that look what has happened to us. Three quick concert stories, then I'm gonna take a break, and we're going to get to the Tonys Alinsky. How story the who has been announced for alpine valley this summer actually late summer September eighth Billy Joel tickets sort of went on sale today for Miller park. There is no there is no sale date anymore. They're just is it. There's the American Express pre-sale the Miller the brewers season ticket holder pre-sale then on Wednesday. There's some other spree sale like Thursday, they go on sale to people that are such losers that they can't get into what are the ninety seven. I didn't even know what's going to be left by the time. They allow regular old slumps to by the to buy the tickets and did you hear the area? Anna Grandi is a grander 'Grande Grandy area. I always call her Ariana g because I never know if it's grand or grand R G her concert, which is scheduled for April has been bumped back. There's issues going on and they're going to hold it at the Pfizer form, July fifth. That means it's. Dead up against the Friday of summer fest. I don't really recall ever having a major concert in Milwaukee during summer fest Littlewoods. Yes. But big ones. No. I think what they have going for them on that is they had already sold a lot of tickets for the April show. And I think they assume that people will simply convert it to the other date the who at alpine valley that seems like an unusual spot to them for me. The last time they were here. They played the Bradley center, I was at that concert. That was the one where. Pete Townsend had a ball at the audience are being a bunch of stiffs. This story fifteen times. Well, they were I was even the people that were sitting at it's the ho-. I mean, I understand they're mostly all, but you couldn't get them out of their chair at all. It was a Monday night and people are acting like it was a Monday, he had a Bah. Shelly like cyber here. So they're playing alpine valley. You know, I've sworn on never alpine valley again, this will test my resolve on this because I'd like to see them the one last time the who, of course, the original members left our own the. PD enda. Roger, I think. Keith moon's, drummer, son, the drummer. Or am. I mixed up in my thinking of Ringo Starr's son as their drummer. No, maybe that's an I'm mixing up with that. I think Ringo Starr's son is the who's drummer no sex Turkey. I think that. That is that's what it was. Okay. Tony's alinsky. All depends, the city of Milwaukee, and he's planning to run for mayor next year. He represents the bay area of the southside Bayview is a very interesting neighborhood. And it's getting kind of in transition right now because what started in the third ward has moved to Walker's point. And if it keeps on moving it's going to get to Bayview Bayview consists of a lot of very low single family housing. But it goes all the way over to the lake and near the lake there's a couple of streets that are close to the lake where the houses have considerable value because they're either across the street from south shore park, or they're actually bordering the lake itself. Tony current residents is on superior street, which if you live in Bayview is one of the streets, you wanna be odd. But he bought another fee bought a property. Several months ago. Several blocks to the south. So that it's right across the street from south shore park, meaning he's got a Lakeview across the strait. He tore down the house, and he's building a mansion right next to a bunch of regular old eighty five year old single family houses, and the neighbors are going nuts. Because they think it's out of place. I have some thoughts on this. I've thought that everything pretty much. I have thoughts of this. I can't believe you haven't seen this. You know? The journals running drones over his house. They got all this drone video that they're showing ever since the journal got their stupid drone that thing. Am I the only person in the world that thinks joins ought to be banned. Policy. But yeah, the if you're going to have a drone the Bradley said, I wish it would have been so close that what a hit the drought and blowed blown that thing. Right up there too. That would have been kind of cool. I do think it ought to be legal to shoot down other people's drones. Don't you? No. I mean, if they're over you if I see if a journey, I'm sitting in the backyard and there's a drone spy on me. I think I should be able to shoot it down. Well, I I if you don't hit it in your. You hit the neighbor in the head. No, I think I should be prosecuted. No. I think if I if I hit it and it flops right down the same as a duck. I think I should be allowed to do that. Plus that I would need birdshot well without an Interbike since it's not legal. We would just invent special shot for drones drones shot. You know, this is going to be an issue. It's already pushing to be an issue out and resort areas. People are sitting in their backyards and sure it's a big issue in the Hamptons, they've talked the Hamptons that you know, the fire end of Long Island all those multimillion dollar mansions that are on the water. They're all these rich people have drones they're sitting in their backyards and this these drones hanging out over the sea in their shooting. What's going on in the it's a big issue? See you. You're so starved for attention. You actually want your neighbors to be staring at you in there. I got nothing to hide. I just think that you shouldn't be able to do it. Four forty seven.

"Since two thousand seventeen funny. Well, I mean, you know, he's. The thing. That's weird to me about Kevin Spacey. Is it he's fifty nine years old? So he. Comes of age in goes to high school in graduates in the late seventies, maybe goes to college or acting school like if he was somebody that was sixty nine or seventy nine you can understand like more than but it was like more of the sheltered homosexuality more out there. I mean, I I mean, he why he. Why young men were his in that he chose? Always. I remember Andy Cohen was like in his book outed outed. Kevin spacey. He said in his very first book. Right. And he got some crap barter because Kevin Spacey people were like Suplicy PPC on those fed. But somebody say it, and he's a year isn't he everybody knows? He's always surrounded by young men, and he holds court today. He doesn't make a secret. So he said, I'm not going to be making it a secret if he's out in public surrounded by Nino, his young men, and it's very obviously in a gay bar that was kind of Andy's thing, but he was serving up the dish rate and left in that. But I'd kinda forgotten that he'd gotten some criticism about that. But it's like just I don't know why Kevin Spacey, even at the Tonys memory made fun of his supposed, you know, gain like a non. To the cameras. So yeah, that's I don't know. Maybe that's why Kermit doesn't need to be a bitch. Don't on her karma is. Maybe we don't need to be. Will be a bitch for you. Connect the points.
