How 2 Skiers Conquered Yosemite's Half Dome
"Valley, 8800 FT. Above Sea level is a rock formation called Half Dome in the 19th century, a report said. The granite landmark was so perilous that it quote Never will be trodden by human foot. Well, today, Half dome is a popular hike for thrill seeking climbers. Yosemite resident Jason Tor Llano has always looked at the massive rock with a feeling of wonder. I went to school, right New 70 Valley next to you, Somebody falls. Um and you look up you somebody from the playground is a little kid. That's where the big thunderstorms come from. And when it snows, it just gets packed with snow and And it's just always been attracted to have them. But Torre Llanos attraction to half Dome has always been tied to another interest of his skiing since the very first time he clicked into skis. From that moment on, I just looked around and Kept seeing shoots our ski able to this age. When he was 17 Tor Lana went climbing with a friend on half dome. Remember walking down the cable's going? Wow, I bet you this thing's cable, and it turns out he was right this year, Jason to Orlando and his friends act, Milligan finally descended. Half dome on skis mean climbing half dome is dangerous enough descending on skis. It's a slab of no anchors. So avalanches occur all the time off that. And if you fall or get caught in an avalanche, you're gonna fall off the South face 1000 ft Cliff, so they scouted the location a day early. We walked up there the day before, and we slept at the base in a tree. Well, we start a little fire and kept warm for a few hours. So we're so cold at three in the morning. We're like okay with mice will go to the top. We got it in perfect conditions. This time, it was like a lay an inch layer of ice with about 3 to 4 inches of snow. Trevino and Mulligan weren't the first to descend Half dome in the snow. It's been done on skis and on snowboard, but their trip was special. Well made Our stand a little different is we? We skied the cables with no ropes. But then we see it all the way down to near Lake So another 4000 plus Vertical feet. Achieving this lifelong dream has not stopped to Orlando from eyeing other slopes in the park. Every time I go to Yosemite. I look up into the mountains and just there's so much I want to do. They're still that's Jason Tor Lana, who skied down half dome into the Yosemite Valley last month.
"torre" Discussed on The Eddie Trunk Podcast
"The business is on the road and has been for a really long time. That's where the money's made. That's where your bread is buttered and artists found themselves suddenly with a lot of time at home which is something. They're not used to and most of them went in and made record somehow whether they did it themselves they did virtually they got tested in all went into a studio whatever. The case may be so. I think we've gotten a lot more records than we'd would've expected during all this. But i think there's a ton in the pipeline still about to come out as a result and it sounds like that that time is. What really gave you the chance to finally do this. The way you wanted to do it. Exactly yeah i mean it it expedited the process. Absolutely i i was still going to do it but you know like it just. I don't know how long how much longer would it take. 'cause when you're traveling. I mean you travel a lot when you travel and you get home. It's you know you gotta chill out and decompress and then spend time with your significant other or do things around the house or whatever this. This just made that possible without distraction so like if i'm focused on on writing lyrics that day i have all day and night to do it and then the next day i can pick right back up on it. I'm not packing a suitcase. And then on a plane and then say okay. Well i'll get to it again in three days or i'm in the hotel room and you know maybe i'll play with it here now. I need to be focused without distraction. And so yeah. That's that's why this was able to get done so well and and quickly you know what what's really cool about the record is to me. It's very much a metal record but it also it doesn't sound like queen's reich and it also within the the the very broad wide scope of an umbrella because metal means something different to everybody. I mean there's people who think jovis metal it's just there's a wide scope of the metal umbrella but within that within the real the real nuts and bolts of metal. They're still a lot of variety. When i listened to the record. I hear things that remind me of. Except there's things that feel a little bit like testament. There's times where it feels a little bit like painkiller judas priest. It's it's what my point is to me. It's it's very diverse still by also still being a consistent metal record. If that makes sense. I think you summed that up rather well because there is the diversity but as a continuous play. You don't. you're not hearing songs that feel like they don't belong You know there are three bonus tracks. The the main record i always like to say is one through ten and the other three are just extra goodies for people who get to hear some other stuff but You know one of the things that i i really wanted on this record. Musically was groove and a lot of people have referenced fight or helford or you know. I really wanted that group. That's what i loved penn tara it was heavy but they still had that groove. That made your body moved to it and That's something i always. I always wanted. I said i don't hear. I don't hear this anymore. If you hear like thrash music you know usually or you know. I don't want to name stations or anything. But i've put on some other stations metal and it's all. Yeah yeah. yeah the whole time. And it's like man. Where's the singers out there. You know there's a time and a place but everything sounds the same to me and you know and when i put this out i didn't have any agenda or motive other than hey craig. We're going to go back to our roots of what we love is fans of metal and what i would like to hear in my cd player. This is stuff. I like and what i wanna hear and then as we did it you know there were people that hurt and said nobody's putting out music like this anymore. This is a lauch thing that was like really you know and like i hadn't really examined what's out there to compare it to and i said you know i really don't. It's either like very power metal or super symphonic and like it's over the top almost cinematic or it's so down tuned that you don't even hear guitar good guitar tone anymore and again. It was an opportunity to to just show a variety of vocal styles. That i can do and a lot of singers. There's a great singers out there but a lot of them have one sound. Then you've heard the term one trick pony. I'm not a one trick pony as you have have learned from this record. It's like being guitar player. If i said. Eddie here's your guitar. You have one pickup and a distortion channel. That's it you can't change pick. You can't switch between other pickups there's no channel no reverb no delay chorus no special effects nothing. How colorful is you're playing really gonna sound. It's it's going to be very one dimensional. Well i i wanna utilize those tools of my voice since that's also my instrument and and play with those things that are that are available to me And i knew that it. You know it wasn't anything like queen's reich and that's that's another whole point why would i wanna try to create something when i have the best. Which is queen's reich to sound like that you know so it's throwing people for a curveball when you heard it you were probably like whoa. That's todd. I did expect that then. I've been singing like that for a long time. I just don't sing like that in queens right because it doesn't call for right and they make sense. Why would you do an album. Why would you step outside of your main band and do a solo album. It doesn't make any sense for anybody to do that. That sounds exactly like what they do in the main band anyway. And i thought i thought the whole rack and i did not know first of all. I didn't know that you started out until you sit earlier playing guitar. Now i know on the record you play drums and sing. And i know you've got craig as your guitar player on this record but do you play any guitar on it as well I didn't track guitar on the record but there were some guitar parts that i wrote You know darkened. Majesty was a song that i said to craig. Hey check this out. I think this is pretty cool. And i played the guitar parts and And he loved it. And and you know played that and then wrote wrote his own parts for the The rhythm beds behind the solo. But you know as a guitarist. I did show a lot of stuff but i mean. He's a far superior guitarist than i am. So i need to just you know. I don't need to be a one man band. This is the guy who's the you know the best at this for me. So you're you're gonna track all the guitars and and honestly like you. Would you would want the same hand playing both rhythms for example. Like if i was. Oh i wanna play rhythms on here. Even though i know the parts maybe i knew the part perfectly. It's not the same as having the same right hand of that rhythm player on both rhythm tracks when you're recording so you really want to stay consistent and have the same player. And so i just you know i didn't record anything On this record with guitar. But i did do some songwriting on guitar with craig but ninety ninety plus percent of the music that you hear on guitar those rifts though that's craig he he wrote those and then we we would talk about him and tweak them as we saw fit. Yeah the name is craig blackwell is. He's a killer player. When i saw the video. Which is your most reason video. Maybe my favorite song on the record crossroads to insanity. And then there's the guitar break in. Which i just love that sort of melodic playing in seattle as well i was like i tweeted the link to it and i said i came on the air. I don't know who this guitar player is. But he's killer so his background is just he's a guy that is in the area florida and a longtime friend of yours. I imagine played in some bands in that area. Yeah so the first band. We put an ep k. Out that's on youtube. That explains the history of mean. Craig and And kind of how the record was made in a nutshell and the first band i ever joined as a drummer was called blackwell. And you know in high school. I was fourteen or fifteen years old and then we just. We kept playing in bands through our twenties. And he's you know he was always like just a such good guitar player. You know he was like that guy and you know but after after you reach a certain age and you don't quote make it. You know you kind of stop playing and live bands and pursuing that path but he still has produced stuff and You know continues to play Different styles of music with guitar..

"Okay. It's edie trump back with you on this week's podcast. And as i mentioned my guest current queen's reich lead singer toddler tori talking about queen's reich his new solo album and a whole lot more enjoy toddler tori. How are you buddy. I'm doing pretty good. How are you read good. Yeah man house. That i'm in new jersey with over two feet of snow. You're in florida. Yeah i'm in florida. It's probably in the upper fifties clear blue skies and palm trees. I feel i feel for you guys up there. That's cold for you. Isn't it fifty something right. I got. I got a long sleeve and a flannel on the heater on. Yeah i'm sure you've probably just shaking your boots. They're taught you god you will. You're you're not. You know everybody from my area of the country new york new jersey. And when i was a kid i can never understand it like when i go to florida. Is everybody there from originally from new york new jersey. And i find that as people get older. They all migrate there. They all go there. And now that i'm fifty six. I completely understand why people move to. Florida and florida is like new york new jersey south. But you're a native right. i'm a native. yeah. I'm a true native born in saint petersburg florida. But you know when you get older. You don't wanna start shoveling snow and scraping ice off your car anymore. It gets old you know you just cut the grass here. That's it so we. We have a lot a lot of people from up north. Come here and Know i guess. I live where a lot of people like to retire I'm not a fan i. I like the cold to visit. You know visit when it's cold for like a week. And then i'm and then i'm over it and then i wanna come back. Well keep keep your eye open for some places around you. That might look good. That are on sale now. Because i might be joining you there soon. I'm looking here to be honest. And the markets blowing up here. I mean i'm five minutes from downtown. Yeah it's i have friends in the market for house and they're just like man. I can't believe how expensive things are there for what you get and so yeah it's a. It's a destination people like. Oh yeah. Florida texas nevada. Which i'm looking in. There's a lot of a lot of people leaving some of these big cities in going to those places for a variety of reasons so But you're a native so everybody's coming to see you down there when you were growing up in that area. Parts of florida that are really known for being hotbeds. For metal shop. the tampa area is. What was the scene like as you were growing up. Yeah i mean. I can remember there was a mall right where where i lived in seminole called gateway mall and there was a music store in there that i used to go to when i was like thirteen fourteen. Th you know. Even to this day. But i i remember seeing like the guys from decide like walking in the mall like you know like a little gang and it was. I think it was like right when glen benton like did that crucifix in his forehead or whatever. People were like terrified. You know i mean. I'm twenty minutes from tampa but this whole area here you know is kind of hailed as the birthplace of death metal. So a lot of atheists his from here Obituary death And then my my friend erik rutan He's got a studio like twenty minutes away and they record like cannibal corpse and you know a lot so all of the you know. Sabotage came from tampa. Glory with from sarasota. So you know primarily. The death scene is is you know was always popular here. Everybody used to record it more sound studios and so yeah. It's a it was. It was a thing here. I mean we used to have a show on ninety eight rock called the pit and they would play at night they would play all of the you know the more extreme Heavy metal styles music. So you would always hear obituary on the radio and slayer and stuff like that. Were you into the death metal stuff. Todd were were. Was that every year thing. I never got into it personally. But we're you You know to to a degree. But i was more. I was more into thrash. Definitely more into testament and overkill and metal church and you know. I was more into the thrash stuff but but you know i did. Listen to obituary. I did listen to A little bit of death. I listened to You know there's a lot of band. I can't name them all but you know there was. There was some stuff that i got into. You know as drummer. I mean the the technicality and what these guys were doing especially back then. That was a very extreme form of drumming that you just really didn't here with all the blast beats and and and the double bass and all the tom work and everything so as a drummer i was always blown away by you know the technical proficiency of of that involved but i was always more into the groove. I liked more. you know. i like thrash where it's not blast beats the whole time I appreciate it but after a little while it kind of wears on me and so i'm more into extreme music. I i would. I like more like behemoth you know or jira or you know a lot of more melodic black metal mowatt. I don't mind the. I don't mind the heaviness of the music or the intensity of the music. But i'm i'm a fan of singers all the way and i gotta hear singing. I gotta here. I got to hear some singing. We cannot do the growly. Grungy screaming vocal thing. It's just it's just not my tasted. I go to hear singing. And that's where i is that stuff. It's it's certainly not for everybody but you know there's a You know chuck billy from testament you know when he would do like a growl and practice what you preach or able to watch you know Then he came out. They came out with the song called. Dog faced gods and that was all pretty much gutter roles which i love It's it's not for everybody but there's a certain attitude that you're never gonna get like quote singing like there's just a. It's almost like these guys that down tuned guitars. You know. it's almost sometimes where you're on. Not even hearing a note. Same with the the growling. It's not vocalizing. I don't consider it singing per se. I consider it vocalizing and so you know. There's a huge demographic of heavy metal fans out there that totally love that. Oh i understand. I understand where you're coming from. A man like opec do both they can sing and dude roles for you were you now. Most people know. Maybe there's a few that don't that are listening. Because you've been the singer in queens right now. Well how long have you been in. How long is this going on like ten years. Is it This show.

"I have to keep doing this the quality of life. I mean and simultaneous to this. I had friends who had gone to law school. And i'm talking to them and they hit their school the head and lawyers and they're like asking me like what was it like to hang out with like mike tyson or profile. This athlete or go to new orleans covered this book like i mean the job itself. Big mistake like we're in sports. Both of us. I think because like the ceilings to borrowed sports term to describe sports itself the ceiling. Sports is so high. It's fun it can be serious. There could be travel interesting. People ailing is rare about this. The ceiling is absolutely so. Yeah i was into it. I was super into it and remain into it. People who are kids who want to be lawyers. Because it was me for a minute until i was like. Oh i'm not smart but people who want to be lawyers. Maybe actually just wanna be stephen a smith. Yes oh my god. The million like oh. I want to argue a case and win. It's like then. You wanna be stephen a smith. You don't actually want to be a lawyer because there's so much other stuff involved in law that's going to get in. The way of doing. The law even gets to walk in and pronounce himself the law for an hour however long that show is now three hours. He just gets to be the law. That's why you hours two hours. Plus museum plus show plus other projects on a given day plus show which i'm like. Oh that looks like my show. But he's doing it better. He found it. He just is so good at like. Yeah this is what this is and you're like confidences. What you have. I don't have it. I mean i think more than anything. He has identified at the beginning of that. Which is that he is like. He is a movie lawyer like. that's his job. Like being a sports arguer is so. You're totally right about that. It is more like big in like a scene from law and order or my cousin vinny or pick whatever like legal fictionalized things like your dramatically yelling at somebody. You're cracking jokes. You kind of winking at the camera like you're throwing evidence in the air you have dramatic reveals like but you're also like and steven is so good at this. He is taking the arrows. He is being attacked. He is judy moving. Some of them some of it he wears he has emotion. I mean it's it's performance. It's it's it's it is so much more like what people think. Being a lawyer is like where when you lose it you get to come back the next day and just do it again. You won't have to be like. I lost that case i going to bounce. It's just like go do it again. Go do exactly the same thing again. It's not really as consequential as like. Oh i lost in an innocent man. Now is going to jail like other gone missing like i lost and people think i'm stupid but that's okay. I can go. Try to be smart tomorrow if i need to. I lost and now lebron james. you'll never be the goat. You will never be the no this is this is such a sidebar but it was something dan tonight not patrick. Who's of the dan. Patrick school of broadcasting where you shouldn was going to say enlist but i meant enroll. Didn't i mean list My dan and i were talking about the other day where he was the most impressive thing about lebron no one can ever take away from him as a he lived up to the hype and then some lebron should have been a classic case of like. I thought you were going to be good. And people still set it but it didn't mean anything because anybody paying attention is like yeah. He is good. You might not like all of it. You might not like that. He's not on your team when he was on your team and now he's not on your team anymore. But he lived up to the hype in his continuing to whiz wild. It's what he has done. Is i mean just from pure like man. You might have been Did you watch the brittany spears thing. I haven't yet where is it. What platform is i hate that. That's the first thing. I have to figure out when people are talking. I believe it's on. I think it's on hulu but the point is i'll go in is there's a world there's a world in which lebron is like any tragic child star who meteorically rises than blows up because guess what no one should be subject to that level of public life for that long starting that early i mean purely from the like man you should have melted underneath like all of these people watching you and just being hounded. There's an amazing. There's a marc maron interviewed caprio and he interviewed brad pitt together for the once upon a time in hollywood movie junket. And we're doing this like they're doing this podcast. It's not like radio. It's different very different. So there are podcasts. And brad pitt and caprio end up like talking to each other briefly about just like being famous and a heartthrob young and then what that sort of evolution was like over time and it becomes clear. That brad pitt is like leonardo dicaprio's like men like the paparazzi still bother. You bothers you in breath has like actually like not as much right now so it's probably still insane amount but like there's a level of like oh there's things that have been quieted a little bit and the cafes like shocked to hear this and brad pitt asked him like well was like for. You need something. I'm paraphrasing here. He was young when he did. Titanic was like how old were you think he was like. Oh god i'm terrible at age. But i remember growing pains or something. Yes like but like young right like so point is one day you says to black. Suv's appear in the driveway to his family's house and brad pitt's marveling gets a lot and they are happy goes they never left only just like i mean again like a fun to see a person throughout your movie star like come on but the idea that there's always parked in your driveway in your life constantly. Only if you're a lebron if you're just like that level of celebrity for that long it's just like that you just go insane that you should go and say because especially at that age. Failing is so important. And when everybody's looking at you a failure feels a lot bigger because people are like did you just trip. He tripped i think he tripped and fell. And you're like no no. I was just running. I was starting to run. I didn't know tripping avenue we want to hide our failures so that we have time to figure out what they taught us before everybody else tells us what it says about us and like at that age. If you're told you can't fail. That's much scarier than being like. Hey it's okay screw up. It's going to hurt more..

I've never been in labor bad if you can call likes god. Oh god wasn't actually doing that. It was dangerously close to be doing matt She's like turns out. I'm with the obgyn. Now so i have definitive proof that in fact i am labor which is exactly what you needed. I have one standard and it is needed a doctor's note in order to get out of word. You weren't gonna leave. Not a quitter. So i go into the newsroom. And i'm like 'i finkel is giving birth and people are responding with all of the energy that i should have been and i remember bo. Is there and bowl like hugs me. And he's like you gotta go and blah blah like everyone's mobilizing people mind's eye people are like people are like well and like there's a show that i was supposed to do vis-a-vis all the makeup that had been did upon me and i remember katie. Beat you being there and being like okay guys have fun figuring it out just sprint out. and then go and have my day which involves in the birth of a child almost one year ago to the week. But yes you were. That's the last time i saw any want. It was funny. Because i i. We were in the like fish bowl. That is the only meeting room at the newest espn office. It's like a you go in for anybody who doesn't know which is everybody. It's a bunch of cubicles like six offices which are prime real estate and there were like actual politics that went into who got an office when they got. And i wanna be clear. Pablo and i had not even considered these conversations. That's how far were rummaging through the snack drawer yes. I had a cubicle right outside. The offices which i guess is primer. But it's not prime real estate either way. There's one room in line with the offices. that's a big office. Essentially that everybody used for like their meetings so in multiple shows needed to have meetings. You just see groups of people like the green room anywhere. They could find space but so we were. We had the coveted meeting room space. We were in their brainstorming for our show which was days away so i had. My show is days away energy. It was like i got nothing else to do that. Make stuff and when. That's the case i usually would just. I got to a point of comfort with staff. Thank god whereas i'm coming in without any makeup. I'm coming in and grow sweatshirt that i love and you hate and that's why i can wear it today. 'cause i'm not front facing today and I think that i had gotten a buffalo wild wings gift pack that had a buck wings. encrusted boneless buffalo wing on the end of a comically large gold. Chain for one. It's the one you're wearing right now. Katie man called me out right. But i was like wearing around the office. Like ha ha. This is funny. I could never wear this and somebody came into our meeting and was like hey. Could you do high noon today. And i was like what's up because to me and this isn't flattery to you actually mad that i have to save as many compliments in a row to me. High noon was like uh the smart people show. If i'm gonna show up on high noon. I better bring it. I better have made sure. I know everything so that i'm comfortable enough to say the things i know. Because that's how i am. I talking about stuff that i know. I don't know enough about because i'm not convincing. I'm not a good liar. And i'm more interesting when i know enough that i can find what is interesting to me about it. Point is i was like kenai yes. Am i having difficulty finding a reason to tell you that i can't without revealing dumb. Yes i was like how can i. I can't be like i'm busy. You're looking at me. I'm wearing a busy and i was like. Oh i'm how to communicate. I'm in the wrong mode for this. So i was like. I'm yeah then. My brain starts being like live up to the occasion rise to the occasion. Do this pablo has to create a life. Today i'm it through like i i can do this. I bet. this is how pablo felt that he couldn't do this. But i can do this. So it might. Yeah meanwhile the back of my head is like no. You can't don't do this so go in. And unlike reading through every doc you guys make but at that point in high noon anybody who made anything. Collaboratively knows you've gotten to a point where the dock doesn't waste a lot of time. They know what to put in there. That you need and that bo- needs but there is stuff in there that like a katie needs because my brain is different than yours. And i don't work on that show so i'm like flipping through it like none of this matters. Look what am i going to say. And then someone came in in my my brain is telling me it was beau but i actually think it was somebody else but i think it came from bo and i think i knew that immediately that they were like. Hey if you're not comfortable you don't have to do this. We have an out. We can cancel the show. We can cover it with something else. Programming is telling us where okay if you can't do this. Then maybe i think bo came in himself. And i was like i think i looked up at him with a look that felt like a neutral face but to him. Probably like a very scared dog. Who's like i can do. I do. I have to put his hand on my shoulder and was like we're going to cancel the show today. It's thank you for doing this. We're gonna cancel the show. I was like oh my god and that was like wait. Do you think i'm too dumb to do the show off. Hey i can only get a break from it for thirty seconds or but i just remember being like you've got to live up to pablo's expectations and meanwhile you were like. I just remembered that you were there. I was scared. I that's the first off at. It's so funny to hear the any other vantage point on what that day was like. I'm like yes. I do wanna like piece together like the all the perspective on this one afternoon you would have been so good filling in for me and it would not have been wise for you to try and like imitates around just imitate the voice of whatever it is that you thought that the template of the show was but it's pressure right like a horse. No it's it's you. Pti how does that feel filling. All i mean the thing about what i just said is that i if anything to guilty across the board in terms of like okay this is the template of the show time for me to become whatever is the best fit inside the template like i. I think that's for me. Like i have almost the opposite issue. If if this this way too deep about about the summit at this point that's what this always ends up being. I can't tell if anybody likes it or not yet but in some of these keep going so i think i you have. I mean your voice. I mean what a voice is and this goes back to writing and goes back to performing and it goes back to speaking. What someone's voice is is kind of the goal of the mission is like figure out. What your voices right and then play the instrument and this is very high falutin of course but like for me like i would say there's a lot of cover banding and i think that's part of finding your voice perhaps in any situation and this is imposter syndrome in so many words but it's also like how do i get good at something and it's like well have to imitate in order to figure out what i can be good at and then work that into what i think i am which is a different version of that. That's a combination of a bunch of different things. But i would say that. I'm absolutely still working through that all the time. Like part of the reason why i'm loving talking to you here is because this is a very purely open space but if you put me on i will absolutely go into mode to for good and bad right like it's really easy to do the show with me bad in the sense. Only that i really do. Enjoy the open field. You've provided which is a different job. Of course that doing pti or noon or h anything else but the best end. This is what obviously our friend. Dan lebatardshow nurtured which was great. Was he was more of an open space guy. and so. that's that's the difference between i would say structure template versus that open space thing. I enjoy both. The living i make is mostly on the template side of things because we're doing shows four magic shows. You have done them. You've hosted them but it's a it's on this spectrum of like structure and templates business..

"Do once we can only do it once and we tried to always time it on days when jalen wasn't going to do it because when jalen would buy meals for the office which is a thing he would do all the time and i'd go what are we celebrating and it was like jalen humanity. I love eating. Just mac and cheese day with jalen girl seahorse catering because jalen just wants us to know he loves us. It was the best really was then when he didn't do that. It was like god. There's no food here we're on a pier so getting a delivery person to even signed was a nightmare enormity album as a person who likes to sit at her desk in have the food be at the desk so she can keep focusing because if she doesn't if i break focus you lose me to have to like not i. It was like you have to walk to get lunch. And i was like i don't like doing that. It's gonna ruin my whole day but then it would ruin my whole day to have to talk to someone like no no. It's all on the water like the building is floating above. The water is not on the street. Where the address says it. You need to trust me. Walk into the ocean. Just walk right into the river. It was so frustrating. But but i don't want you to lose the story that you're going to say about the day that you found out about you have no kid. It wasn't a surprise but you were finding out that it was happening. Yes so a mom is here this floating year like hey delivery guy go forty paces that they jump up and you get the coin pops out. Trust me it's there if point you're gonna pop but the restaurant itself is pretty hidden so i can't really describe it any other way so here and i'm about i- doing makeup. I gotta make up to be clear. He means he was getting his makeup. Done i'm sorry not make just wanted to make sure he doesn't know the difference as a man. I was doing makeup. Sure you're up to a country. Let me see i was. I was doing make-up's.

"I would use a emails convincing eagles to get out of like. Don't be mad at me for this paper being late and then i was like told myself so long that it was cheating and then it was like no. It was learning how to use the skills that i was given to write down thoughts in like make somebody feel like they can relate to it because when someone can relate to you. They're like okay fine but do this so to recap you Did like something. Fishing's hack on your teachers your own convincing emails. They signed up for multilevel marketing scheme. And you got to not do that. We all i'm saying is that mr sotomayor is still selling lotions at a great rate for which i get. A percentage of every lotion he sells and a bigger percentage of every other teacher he recruits to. Yes it's probably like a ponzi scheme but we shouldn't focus on that part in the promo code for that is nolan as well or daily depending on like me or john daly every time. I'm like oh. I know what to ask him next. I forget because i get so caught up in the things that you're talking about trying to get out of assignments though in school and writing emails and stuff. I do you ever do this well. It's just of course you have to write the email where it's like here is my paper. That's due now and here is a word document that is me mashing wing dings for awhile. That have gone wrong with my computer. That's the thing kids. I know we're going to sound very kids nowadays. But i feel bad. They don't have the luxury of saying like all this machine that none of us understand did something wacky now. It's like get it fixed. it's easy to do. What could the problem be back then. It was like oh gosh. I'm telling you this teacher. My his teacher. I took a screen. Grab of my outbox. And i made it look like i had sent him an email that i had never sent him before her and i was like. I'm telling you it said was that creative. Yes was that deceitful. Oh my god yes. I felt so guilty mercy. It worked like there's like a little low key in all of us that's like oh i can just get kind of tricky here and about how to not have to prove. I'm smart to somebody again for the fifth time today. 'cause that's all school feels like when you're that age am i good enough please. Sam good enough. So i can stop number one kids today to continue your first point kids. Today they're not just like confused like why is there a bunch of like code in this text file. They are like constantly pulling that like thing that you do in a heist movie where they like have like fig photos in front of the camera. And they're like somewhere else. They have like changed their username to like reconnecting. They have like green screens and shit. They're like rob. They're like pulling a heist on their class every day. Like the kids today truly. It's it's we are. We are so unprepared for how how good they were advanced. They're being everything. But i feel like empathy skips generations. And you have to make sure that we give the smart ones as much as possible because we got it because our parents were raised with like. I got to make enough money to feed my family. I've got to worry about that. And we were given the like not everybody but like many people in this generation were given like. Why do you guys care much money. It's not about money so you just gotta make the next generation remembers. It's not all about money all the time because they're going to have more ways to make it than ever before but that's good because then it can make it not about money because everybody will have it and it won't matter anymore. Are you about to do like a doj coin ad. Read right now. That's so funny because my plan was to sneak the on these in without you knowing i was doing these ad read an has picked up on it and it's not even happening. I'm just preoccupied with thoughts. That have nothing to do with this interview. So i just need to focus because i have attention deficit disorder. I was gonna say part of me suspect that we're still in the full sail ad read. It is and that's again. Dan pat full dot. Edu slash nolan. What's happening is i'm teaching you. How sports cast through the guise of an interview. It's the medium is the message at the at the end of this zoom call. You take a diploma out and he presented to me. That's exactly what's going to happen. You became a dad. Here's a question for you. So one thing. I've been fascinated by in quarantine on its surface and then at the deepest meaning of whatever i'm about to say time is different now. Like knowing what date is is the most surface like. Oh hi. i think we've all experienced that. But the more i think about it the more i'm like no time itself is like i don't know if this has happened to you but sometimes i'll be doing something and i'll go. Oh my god. I was supposed to do something. It's been three hours. And i'll look at my phone and i'm like it's only been forty minutes. You have plenty of time other times. Two hours after was to do something. I'll remember and i'll think that it's right now but it was actually two hours ago. Like time is moving differently having a child at a time when time is off. And we're all. I think everyone i've talked to in quarantine has been. I feel older than i did before all the start. I'm starting to notice how old i am. Having a child during that time must be fascinating. I mean i saw violet is about to turn one year old on the twenty fourth. And that's that's that is my. I was supposed to be something three hours ago. Kind of thing. Where i'm like i was i this took a year. It's been a year of the year that we most feel like we're not alive so first off you are. You are a part of that day of my memory of that day because you were in the office. You are in the news room man. Oh just that newsroom. just like i just. I just reentered deal amiss. Newsroom i so i go there once in a blue moon to i still around the horn. No one's there so yes okay. Good stock has been like box though. They boxed some stuff flight. Okay wonder where my stuff is. I mean i opened some of the drawers your drawers but the issue did. We're looking snacks. Your don't lie the snack to snacks. And it's still. It is so empty man. That's 'cause lows not there to need sal. I now and me in the in the food chain diagram in the biology textbook me being like the scavenger there was food found. It was like just follow. Pablo he probably found something boxes of cereal on your desk or eating out of a mike. Do you want some lunch. You nine j- just always mooching off of you guys always laid. The always laid trickle down trickled down economics of showers. Just like yes. This is coming to me because we kind of knew we could only.

Your your your ad read was so much better than mine. I that's because you are. You are the queen of ad rates. I that's why it's good because you were a part of it without you. I would have just been reading the words on the screen. But i wanted to read those words to you because i'm no longer on screen this three youth for near on a one man show with a one man audience in its terrifying. I gotta say. The beauty of this alignment of zoom protocols. Is that same to you. That's that's what i'm for you and at the same time breath at the same time super jealous of how good that was. Oh well thanks. I don't know how to take weird compliment. You sell yourself out so well way you whore yourself is top notch. Good job you make. It seem like you're not selling. Yes which is selling out. So let's move on from it until i have to do it again later for underpants. I didn't get that one. How you i like you so much. You're such a good friend to me and it's like i earlier today. Dan was like. We're pablo from and i was like i don't know anything about pablo witch is not because i haven't read the things you say it's because i haven't really read anything anybody says about you because i'm like i'll just ask pablo so like are you. You're not from philly from new hoc. I'm from new york. I'm from manhattan. I'm from new york city. I'm from manhattan. But i do. Obviously i am a sixers. Simp- on television and radio and podcasts. Two different as dan. Patrick has time. That's of course how is radio not podcasts. You're halfway towards a degree by the way. So maybe you should consider just finishing at just nineteen months left. But but i'm from new york. And i i buy in so many ways with. I think what i imagine to be the new york character which is its own type of asshole but it is one that identify with. I think it's because if i may it's because it's you meet so many different types of people that you almost if you allow yourself to have more empathy you can also let it do the opposite to you and make you think everybody is your enemy but if you let it it can teach you that like oh even a person you think you have nothing in common with. There are a lot like you in this way. It is new york as much as anything is that it's the idea that you can be crammed up on a bunch of weirdos and you're gonna love it. I do by and large which speaks to. Obviously the pandemic has among many reasons been very surreal in. I am legend. Alamo and i guess in a medically but yeah new york. New york is that new york is totally that. Yeah so it's funny. Because you just don't feel i did know you were from new york. You just don't feel as much like you're from new york which i don't mean to sound like an insult and i hope you don't take it as one i mean i am walking. I'm walking here. We needed when i first moved when i did move into the city. I don't even live there now. But when i lived there before i was always when i saw kids coming home from school on the subway i was like what a different experience than my experience which was either a bus or i walked but like the subway. When you're a kid that would terrify me. It terrifies me often as an adult. Especially lately i read too many new york. Post's subway attack headlines at another day right is the other. It's unfortunately A lucrative vertical on the new york post website via subway attacks. The thing about the subway. Fear yeah Weirdos tacking you a big one but the thing about the subway and in growing up in new york if you ever youtube video or youtube videos of lake new york city subway one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. It's crazy it looks apocalyptic graffiti. It looks it. Looks very cinematic. Lee scary and to think that like i grew up. Not in the subway at that point but in like years from now i'm gonna tell violet. My daughter i'm going to be like this is what the subway was like when i was growing up to be like what and in reality of course many years removed from that. But it's it's. It's a lot like the subway was more underground when i was coming up to. That is still very much under the ground. What are you talking about So you grew up in new york. Went to one of the smart ones. I think it was harvard right. I get it so it's so your schools confused in blake's expect you to remember hofstra. That's my gift to you is like you don't have to know where i went. I would. I would never forget harvard of long island. That's right they sell however though. I'm so glad that you didn't know that one hundred percent it as a weapon against you a lot of the as as a weapon as a locker to be stuffed into but also is just like the obvious lens through which you see a person which by the way like the most ridiculous lens to complain about arguably yes but and i enjoy it. Honestly it makes me look better you do. But but but Yeah it's it's i. I enjoyed talking about how. Harvard is a lot. Dumber in reality than anybody probably truly understands and also saying everyone's too dumb to know how dumb smart enough to know that idiots exactly the view. I'm going to stop talking now. No it's perfect. You as my favorite thing about a post verticals. When did you realize you were smart. Man i don't think i thought of myself as smart until people started telling me that my mom would tell me that but i always talk that up to being encouraging like go hand in hand if you think about it pretty biased. Pretty biased jet. I've smart enough to know that. That said i always thought that growing up like what i could do better was than maybe or i felt very comfortable doing was just writing and like articulating thoughts and writing and that to me was never the same as intelligence but that was the thing that i sort of realized. Oh this is so helpful in school. Which i think is probably what intelligence for a long as time is it. That's what yeah yes. Yes absolutely and so. I realized like oh this one thing that i can do is getting through a lot and like chemistry's hard obviously physics and i'm like okay at that. I'm not great by any means. Don't still don't understand chemistry and physics really but writing. I was like okay. This is what it is to be some sort of smart than. Yeah okay that makes sense. I think the thing that made me realize that was when i would use writing as in like writing an email to my teacher to help me in the things that i was bad at. It was like. I wasn't getting like weirdly. Math worked for me but it worked when it was more like. Hey here's a problem figured out. Show your work. Because i was like. Oh i can show you how. I got where i got if i get credit for that. Even if i didn't get to the right spot then i'll be fine but like things like history like when dates wouldn't stick in my mind..

Because i haven't said polo sweet cheeks. I don't know i didn't think about it. Welcomes words the podcast. That ends of the question mark but tries. Its best not to use a ton of exclamation points. I'm katie nolan. it's thursday so that means i'm talk. Somebody cool who has been nice to me about why they did that. And what they're up to that person today as you already know is pablo tori blow. Hello we've gone over zoom alignment. So i don't have a lot left. There's usually a point in any of these where you're like. That's where it's going to start in on this one. It was before we hit record so then the second we hit record i was like just assume it has started but i didn't know people are going to start listening to this podcast. There's no hello. It's just us talking about deals worth sharing with people and so this is the interview. They're getting. It is the sound of to human beings for the first time in roughly a year engaging to i and the and literally like and their bodies recoiling well. Yes what is this. where did i go. I've lost myself in a way. that's very disorienting. But i can find myself by asking you questions about you which is basically what this is going to be. I sent you a text today. Because i don't know if you've heard through the grapevine i have just end and just getting over corona virus so i Last normally i'm trying to get better at reaching out to people. I want to do this with in advance. But it screws. You up when you start working on monday and travis was like did you guessed and i was like no can i. Can i be can go. I'd be transparently honest with you. I didn't know that yeah. I'm so glad that you seem to be doing well. I am doing so much better. Although yesterday or two days ago. I said that out loud note yesterday and then started feeling awful. I've told people that corona viruses oddly like an edible. As soon as you say it doesn't do anything it hits you to remind you that you have it. So cautious over it. That's why i keep saying. I'm getting over it but yeah it was a pain in the butt so now. I'm distracted because dan just walked in and waved at no. It's my fault entirely below. Dan publicist he says. Hi so basically. Yeah i texted you today and said. Do you have an hour to talk about you with me. Which i understand is totally weird. But then i also was like saying no. It's totally fine. And you're like thank you very clear about that at today. It's an escape hatch. Everybody should be granted and your generous enough to offer. It's a terrible feeling. We all get. When someone's like what are you have today. You're like well. What are you gonna ask me to do once. I tell you my schedule. Don't trick me into doing something with you so anyway trick before. Yes as have i. Which is why i try my best not to trick. So you're here. You're probably like what is this. And that's great because everyone that's listening to this as well as myself. Have the same question. Point is kind of find it as we go. I just want to know more about you and also want to know how this pandemic has affected you. Which is why i think the thing about zoom is so fascinating and we're going to keep it in but before we get to any of these questions i'm gonna ask you. I would like to tell you and everybody really about full sail. University more specifically full sail universities. Dan patrick school of sportscasting. You may be asking yourself. Pablo's it's a bit. It's not. it's an address. I have to read four. Dan patrick which you know he loves so much what he loves. Even more is that i also have done this really on. Espn i got this.

"We need to align everybody needs to align what the zoom view mode that they use. Okay do you mind as right. I'll can what's confusing about. This is a spy the button at the top of my zoom right now says speaker view. I think that means 'cause when i clicked on it it's going to take me to speaker view. I think what i use is called gallery view. I'm using your above. we're brady munching. And then i moved. I make the window skinny because otherwise there's too much black space so i make it skinny. So it's just us two. And then i go totem pole. Yeah exactly and then my ipod dock is on the other half of my screen so that there's always something i could look at got. It got it got pablo. I'm doing it. I'm in the totem pole. I'm currently Who's the guy in the middle of hollywood squares. All the time. Bruce vallance inch yes. What hollywood square. I am bruce in our podcast totem pole. It's really distracting. When like other people like they could be looking at anything. It's like this ever gonna get closer to human interaction. Gao at least in the same video. Game and i feel like totem pole camera stack is a good one. Yeah we're we're closer as opposed to further apart. I don't want to have to look left. And right when i'm talking to you. Want to look at you. How how much are you just staring at yourself. In any given zoom com originally allowed out also depends on how much i care about what it is. That's happening. what goes up the other guys. Obits what are you more likely to look at myself being like. Are you crushing this. Are you worth listening to worth looking at otherwise. I'm being like like for when we do. Hq it's really hard for me. I keep getting told to stop looking at. Let's say bomani when he's talking on my screen 'cause they're like you're eiser off but i'm like yes but if i look at me i'm not talking and also bomani talk. I wanna look at him. It's yeah you want to you. Want to emulate a human interaction. And yeah i'm with you completely here's a radical maneuver that i think is more like a human interaction. But i never do. Because i will intuitively also drift towards myself in any given situation the hyde self you want. This is so funny because the last pockets. I interviewed charlotte wilder. And we were talking. About how weird. It is this time. More than any other in history. We've had to look at ourselves whether we lately. We're not completely so. I did not know there was a hide. Self where is it. It's so three dots next to mute on yourself. There's hide self. Okay here's the radical katie. It's ally clear right now and now here we are. Oh this is so weird. I feel i know this pandemic messed us up in ways we do not understand. I'm nodding my head so hard my spine chi- alive out. There's nobody else here. And travels in the closet travis in the closet staring. Oh god when. I did this with meena she turned. She couldn't figure out how to turn her video. And that's fine right. And i was like no i get it. I talked to a map that weirdly showed. She wasn't africa. And i just looked at the map and i was like none of this makes sense. It's hard i feel like you got catfish. It.
Retailers are turning to virtual storefronts this holiday season
"Shopping is big part of the holiday season. We go downtown or to a packed mall browse the store windows smell. The chestnuts roasting in the street. The pandemic has obviously changed all this but some retailers like gap ted baker and ralph. Lauren are trying to deliver that experience to our computers. I just clicked her. A virtual tour of ralph lauren's beverly hills store at the entrance. There's an archway decorated with christmas garlands and a marble fountain with mannequins posed in front of it. I think that that this dude is supposed to be riding a horse or something and there is a saddle next to him. Yeah a saddle. Part of the ranting. I guess. I don't think that it's for sale. And i tried to click on it. But now i ended up in another somewhere else. I don't know where i am. Now let me go back. Oh god okay. I talked about the virtual storefront experience with joe toro a professor at the university of pennsylvania and author of the book. The aisles have is the thing that's weird about it. One is that there's no one else in the store and two. There's no sales people so it's essentially a store after the rest of the world has been destroyed. And when you click on a particular marker next to the goods you see the price of the goods you can actually purchase it. We've seen the companies that make these virtual stores sell themselves during the pandemic as a way to get people in store despite the lockdown Do you think brands are hoping this will drive sales or is it. Just more of a pr move well everything. They're hoping we'll drive sales. I think what it is is an attempt to use the architecture that they have. The stores are brands. The physical architecture says something about store the idea that when you walk into a ralph lauren. Store it's not macy's that's the kind of idea they want to depict find interesting. Is that retailers. Were launching these virtual storefronts even before the pandemic which to me indicates that they think people will want to use them during normal times. Why do you think. Shoppers would go to a virtual store if they could go to one in person because it's easier sometimes because people have gotten used to the idea. The habit of shopping online and because those stores wanna differentiate themselves from amazon. If you can actually walk into ralph lauren. In a way that makes you feel good about what you're doing instead of going on to amazon and just going through a regular kind of standard catalog. Maybe would find more interesting. I mean occurs to me that stores are not always accessible or comfortable for everyone. And don't forget that. If you live in new york los angeles there are stores for just about every brand and so what they're doing is reporting the expensive architecture and branding that they created for these flagship stores in big cities and allowing people all over the country and even the world to go into them. So you've written about. How retailers are remarkably good at tracking us in store figuring out our preferences what we might wanna by using cameras and smartphone apps and gps's how might the data collection process look different in virtual storefront. Well the great thing about that. From the standpoint of the retailer is they can actually follow. Your is particularly if using goggles right. They know what you're looking at. They know where you've gone it has the counterpart of walking through the store. So they can actually see. Have you passed the shoe aisle while maybe if we give you a virtual coupon you'll go back to the shoe while they're that level of lineal activity that they can follow and they can see what you're interested in which is partly possible to do of course on a regular website but in terms of the movement across the store and maybe the the trying on of things and putting them back and all that eventually you'll be able to see in this kind of world That's gonna be useful for Stores to know also where you start when you go to a website you pretty well have search for a particular good and then you put it down or you purchase it when you walk into a store. You may wonder you know. If it's a virtual store the same thing and companies will be really interested in how people wander. That's one of the major issues of creating stores organizing stores figuring out how to get people to buy things. Where do you place your goods based upon how people wonder do you think there's any additional data a retailer might be able to get if you're shopping in its virtual store rather than its in-person store will say say what you look for is one thing if the voice becomes part of it for example if they include a virtual sales people who talk to you the way customers talked to the virtual sales people could become another important piece of data what companies infer from the way you speak and even the literal voice tones that you speak with can tell them things about you.

"H is ahead. Copa like is it. I thought it. Cop copacabana all right. So we've got. Our answer was wrong with this. Spent limousine liftoff on watched last night. Mike i watched the bachelor this guy from harvard and they were trying to find out who was like the till package. Who's like the most manly man who was a grown ass man and the sky from harvard bennett. Who's just there as comedic relief. He's got no real shad he's there and he's the harvard guy. They're given like simple math problems and he gets it wrong and he also can't spell limousine always a harvard guy right on. All these shows the harvard guide. Do you think that harvard guy is like the disgrace of the class. Had like didn't finish. Took two credits. Because i feel like all the other harvard guys are like running businesses or a hosting the daily right and they look at the people on the bachelor like what is. This is harvard that expensive just because people keep the email handle. They people who go to harvard. I think we can say this about. I think more than oxford more than any place in the world if you go to harvard. You're more. you're most likely to have it known that you went to harvard juilliard. Oh yeah i think people hit the over. The head with i went to juilliard. I know that you would juilliard more than harvard. Put it on the pole guillermo at tired show. Who's more likely to hit you with their bona fides. Collegiate bona five juilliard or lock expert or har. Harvard maybe yeah. Make the argument. That go into harvard's in negative. I feel like going to harvard and negatives terrible. Some people like you meet up. I'm interested in this. Let's see where this the expectations hold it against. Somebody just just like i went to harvard. It's like kansas. Say somewhere else. Yale like just harvard as i meet them. I mean pablo's it out. He's like really nice outside of pablo. You meet somebody that says. They went to harvard. And you're just like. I said you ever met anybody else. That's ever m- all the time bachelorette never met him bennett until he said.

We got a bunch of ivy leaguers. And chris stu but harvard looks down at cornell they did it look down at every they look down at everybody except i think yale i think they look down at you but you know makes it difficult. To look down at your. You're saying yellen harbor. Saying i can think of them synonymous liam i. I think of them the same way and i think of them as being higher. But there's might be branding like it's not based on anything. I just think. Harvard and yale graduates if you asked me. What are the most prestigious universities to graduate from. Its those two and weirdly. I would go stanford as well before some of the ivy lee harvard and gets together once a year and they all laughed at brown right like oh careful. That's chris berman a while. They'll laugh and boomer mike pablo's expecting your call here. I would like for him to defend harvard and an answer. Some of the questions. We had We could play ask an ivy league are here because you rang. I do think there is something i. It would be a burden to go to harvard like the expectations. Coming out of harvard. It's like going to usc and being a quarterback and if you're not good everyone laughs at you and mocks you if you're not productive if you wind up on the bachelor after graduating from harvard.

"torre" Discussed on Recode Media with Peter Kafka
"Welcome to recode BDO, Peter Kafka that is me how are you I? Hope you're well. I'm fine. I'm code fine phrase I have stolen from someone I'm now going to try to make my own so don't tell him. I think this is a very good show. It's an interview with Pablo Torre for ESPN talked about sports obviously the pandemic obviously politics obviously because that's what you do. We have to talk about why he's not a lawyer what it means for him to be a first generation Filipino. American on TV. But. I WANNA travel back in time to last month when I interviewed. He's the CEO of morning brew. Also a very good chat I think. We talked about how built this newsletter business five years ago started college. Boom since then and his plans for the future, and then at one point I, got to this part of the discussion. Are you going to tell me that you've raised a pile of money and the next six months now because. Because we we luckily don't have to what Lieberman didn't say was that he and his partner Alex Reef were raising money because they were in the process of selling the company, which is what are reported last night they're selling business insider. The deal could value the company at seventy, five, million bucks whatever the number works out to be a lot of money for two guys who barely raised. Investment capital so They're gonNA, make a Lotta money. It's a great deal for them. It's a great story. CONGRATS. Not to get too navel-gazing, but it does underline something I've been thinking about for a while. There are limits to interviews like this. I, take them very seriously asked to enjoy them I. Think you can tell I. Think you guys like hearing them When we present them, we present them with all the Im's and and Butts sometimes that does remind editors to in the awkward pauses there. So you can hear the whole thing in full context. I do consider the stuff journalism. But. It doesn't always mean you're getting the full story just like you might not tell someone the full story when they ask how you're doing Sometimes I'm not asking the question or maybe just the guest isn't being forthcoming I'm thinking recently of a CEO who had I asked him, are you selling your company's at? No, we're not selling the company turns out his bankers out there trying to sell the company. I think that deal is gonNA close pretty soon So it's really just a navel-gazing footnote making here to just keep in mind that. Someone might say something here that maybe isn't the full truth. Could be a flat out lie I try to I, try to get as much truth out of them as I can hear but I. Guess this is just sort of my FDA warning that that not all contents of this interview may be one hundred percent truthful. Okay. Here's what I hope is a mostly truthful interview. With Pablo Tori from ESPN. I'm here with Pablo Tori from ESPN WELCOME PABLO. Thank you Peter. How are you doing man? It's a hectic day and I, guess that's going to be a standard operations for. The rest of my life it Sir how are you? Same same very hectic. I'm standing inside of my recording closet you're catching me between sessions. So I feel the chaos that you feel I can see some laundry blowing in the win there. I've got the same setup. Should formerly introduce you is the host of ESPN daily a daily podcast about sports. As you might imagine, you're also all over. ESPN. Back and forth in various shows you've had your own show on the air. And I wanted to talk to you about all of that I also just wanted to get a sense of what it's like to be in the sports business. Today, we're recording us on Wednesday they was NFL game yesterday. Tuesday. It's the third time ever on a Tuesday in seventy four years their time because of the corona virus, there was the NBA finals the concluded this week college football was Kinda going on baseball playoffs going on apparently the NHL Playoffs concluded recently did not watch those We were waiting since Mar all-sports as we all know shut down in March and sort of started to come online in fits and starts over the summer, and now they also showed up at once. What's it like to be in the sports business when everything comes online and there's literally too much to cover and talk about about yet to betray. Increasing age there is this like I love Lucy Dynamic I'm feeding on the chocolate on the conveyor line and I am to stuffing it into my mouth as fast as I can without getting too sick. But you know. It's it reminds me of of this an embarrassing way to start this podcast. It reminds me of that Darren Revolt tweet. I feel I feel bad for my country, but this is tremendous contact. The famous. Less Muna member lessening version we would. We would quote him and not. Sexual harassment but he says dad for the country but good for CBS DONALD TRUMP SO I. Look. There's a larger conversation around like sports and ratings and how many people are in fact, enjoying the SMORGASBORD, the sportsman's board that I just described. But from a journalistic perspective and what I do is I talked to reporters I talked to newsmakers I tried to both preview and react to the biggest news of the sports calendar. I have found that even when there was no sports Peter, there were so many absurdly interesting stories that were historic that were terrifying that we're chaotic that were existential and we can go from the bucks wildcat strike. In the bubble we can go to the creation of the bubble itself, how all these sports were preparing to play while managing all of the pandemic racial and viral in America at the same time. It's been nonstop since I took over this thing what feels like ninety years ago but was actually just July. Jumped into this and what's your sense of sort of assume the answer is My own question for I've asked it. I'm assuming your audience says, that's great but we really want to sports tell us about the games were were here for social commentary where we're interested in history maybe we really WanNa talk about. Who's going to win? Whatever division we're talking about? Do you get that feedback?.
Quim Torra, the president of the regional government of Catalonia, has officially been disqualified from office
"Last November in the build up to a general election in Spain Kim Torah, the president of the Regional Government of Catalonia hung a banner on the building in which the government sits demanding the freedom of certain of his colleagues presently in prison or in exile, and what we are going to ask Mister Sanchez. Okay. Obviously and of repression to sit together in these table of negotiations with no conditions that means that we are going to put on. The table, these referendum, these right of Catalonia to self determination, and we want to ask Mr Scientific for the amnesty for our colleagues imprison this week. This act appears to have caused cream Torah his job Spain's Supreme Court has upheld a previous decision banning him from public office eighteen months a consequence of him disobeying an earlier court order to remove the poster which was held to violate election laws against displaying political materials in were indeed on public buildings. He was also fine. Thirty thousand euros treated to a judicial wigging for his quote stubborn blunt repeated and obstinate on quote refusal to do as he was told. Others naturally be afraid of these magistrates if the Supreme Court would decide whether to disqualify democratic and legitimate president for having defended freedom of expression justice prisoners, coalitions, and the return of the exiles these traits today have in their hands. Something much more important than my political futures wanted. Not For any banner. But for banner that defended the fundamental rights denied I mean stylish kitchen. Inevitably given the nature of populist nationalist movements of the tight which Mr Tara leads he and his supporters will regard this damnation as a ringing endorsement. The practical upshot of this decision is that Catalonia has a new acting president, vice president and Economy Minister Arrogance and the Embassy of Catalan independence have been stoked once again with potentially combustible consequences. For Listeners who've been sufficiently bewildered by recent global events that decathlon succession crisis feels like something that happened circa the battle of Salamanca as opposed to three years ago a brisk recap is possibly in order. In October, two thousand and seventeen, the procession regional government of Catalonia through a referendum on independence. This vote had already been declared illegitimate by Spain's national government ruled illegal by Spain's constitutional. Court. and was widely boycotted by pro unionists within Catalonia. What they are pushing is not democracy it's a mockery of democracy travesty of democracy. Referendum do not equal or do not equate democracy. The result was ninety percent in favor of independence but on a turnout of only forty three percent. Nevertheless on October twenty, seventh, two, thousand and Seventeen Catalonia's parliament. Independence Solutia. The COLOSIO Delta repetant parliamentary get rather sit down. Though in Punta. The worst Zimba. Spain's national government was unimpressed by this and accordingly sacked Catalonia's leaders dissolved its parliament and instituted direct rule from Madrid Catalonia's. Can Preach Demont and a few other putative architects of the Catalan nation skipped the country. Wisely, it turned out those who stayed were arrested and charged with treason several received hefty prison sentences including Catalan vice president, Auriol Carris, currently serving thirteen years. President preached amount remains in exile in Belgium from where he has managed to get elected to European Parliament as a representative of Spain Vice? President John Carey has also been elected to European Parliament although for obvious reasons is yet take his seat. Absolutely none of which has caused the idea of Catalan independence to go away at least not entirely though recent polls do suggest dwindling enthusiasm for the idea from nearly forty nine percent at the time of the referendum to perhaps forty two percent. Now, President Torre has strongly suggested that regional elections may be held early in two thousand, twenty one, which he is already framing as a choice as he puts it between democracy and freedom or repression and imposition. The, difficulty with this argument is that in the present dispensation, Catalonia is not short of either democracy or freedom. It is the richest part of what is by global standards a wealthy country. It enjoys considerable autonomy electing its own parliament flying signed flag, speaking its own language, controlling its own police and many of the public services, including schools and healthcare. The Catalan independence movement often looks and sounds less like some heroic struggle to slough off a brutal imperialist yoke. The net does populist insurrection like Brexit, another self indulgent tantrum thrown by the complacent citizens of a prosperous and orderly nation rebelling against some imaginary tyranny door is breaking. Independent United Kingdom. The difference of course is that Mr Torah his colleagues and supporters do have a case on the repression and imposition front as well. The referendum of two thousand and seventeen was a stunt which all, but begged Madrid to overreact and indeed. Did Not just in its heavy-handed persecutions of the independence movements, ringleaders. But in the ham-fisted response of the National Police and Guardia Civil, which left hundreds of pro-independence protestors injured and Spain's government looking like exactly the authoritarian overlords that Catalonia's government was accusing them of being. Versus the cycle of Grievance keeps turning in firing president. Torres Spain might be about to discover again the folly of punishing those who want to be punished.
Iran Executes Wrestler Accused of Murder After He Took Part in 2018 Protests
"For his life to be spared. 27 year old Naveed of Curry had been convicted for the killing of a security guard during anti government protests in 2018. Mr Curry said he'd been tortured. Into making a confession. Among those who called for the Iranian of thought is to show mercy where President Trump on the International Olympic Committee, which says it's shocked. By the execution. Tara. Separate FA is the researcher on Iran for human rights. What she's been telling me more about Navid of Curry and his standing is arrested in Iran. Naveed Afghan, participated in several national competitions and had run up position and the adolescence and youth national championship in Iran. Few years back, and was he taking part in anti government protests in 2018? So there have been several rounds of protests over the past 2 2.5 years in Iran. The protest that Naveed was prosecuted for took place in summer of 2018 in several cities, including in Shiraz, where he lived. So how did he come to be accused of stabbing to death? His security guards and so, according to documents Reviewed on DH news articles have been published about the case on the evening off one of the days that the protest was ongoing. Mr Torre Common who initially was reported as a security officer, but later was introduced as just an employee off the water Waste management company was stabbed to death close to his home. Naveed and his brothers were arrested about a month later. Naveed in one of his brother was also been implicated. And in village murder, were arrested in September of 2018, according to hand written letter by Naveed and that has been published, He experienced severe torture into different detention centers where he was detained. In issue Ross. He was facing dozens of charges in ST separate cases, but the criminal court sentenced him to death in October of last year. 2019 the evidence used against him was mostly confessions. Of him, his brother and a friend, And they all alleged that those confessions were obtained under torture. And in April off this year, the Supreme Court uphold the death sentence and quickly brushed over the serious allegations of torture and failed to investigate that, so there were no independent witnesses who Tied, Mr AFC hurried to the scene of the stabbing a cz faras, you know, according to authorities and footage is that been released? There's footage from one security camera. It is unclear if if the person in the video is exactly Naveed, and if that proves anything, anything beyond reasonable doubt, why do you think that the Iranian authorities decided to make an example off him? If you like on DH to execute him, even though there was this into A national outcry. I think that the rush nature off this sentence because Iranian authorities disregarded the procedural rules that they need to abide by and when executing someone shows that it had a political motive behind it, And I would say it's probably an attempt to defy the international and domestic outcry against the death penalty. So was there a campaign inside Iran to have him sped? Since July of this year, there has been an ongoing campaign. Online, mostly with the hashtag don't execute against the death sentence that have been issued in relation to the protest that have happened over the past two years. And it is a growing a domestic movement, and many people also try to raise awareness and work in different capacities to save Naveed is life arranging from people who were working on convincing the Supreme Court for a retrial to the ones who were hoping for. Give nous y and all the other activists who were trying to raise a very innocent and informing international institutions and authorities, hoping for coordinated pressured It was Tara separate far a researcher in Iran for
"torre" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"So they've become very exciting to, but I'm with the Houston. With nuggets. Questions. act. Because I love my cousins because Michael Porter, Jr. beyond being the latest. I guess he's an anti. Baxter Baxter. Now, we have to track it. CYSTIC. Zano. Of every play Davis is apparently not There's some there. Dwight Dwight I, know I've got no time for Dwight's anti, mask. ISM. Whatever. So anyway, your nuggets question. please. So outside of that, let's leave that to the side. It does seem like the nuggets have these incredible high upside freaks of nature with incredible fragile medical histories. So Michael Porter Junior being the one you mentioned, I'm so intrigued by his potential. Arguable stockholder. That's my question because I watch him and I see a child's rendering of the NBA future. I have not purchased any bowl stock A. Price probably too late for me. The prices for the price might be me too. I was too. I was too afraid. I was like I don't know. Them, like being a point guard and he looks like Manute Bol and I'm like. So. What can t do then at this point besides stay healthy i. think that's I. think that's it, and obviously he's skinny as a rail and he's going to get pushed around. But like the guy is skilled and he's a little bit more athletic in terms of just like like zero to sixty kind of is running the. So. Yeah. The nuggets are interested in the rockets are seeing. I know that you will always having still have strong feelings about Carmelo Anthony. So tell me how it has been to watch the CARMELO resurgence and like I do feel like we do we go over, we go a little overboard like mellow can score like fourteen points on six of fourteen. Everyone would be like, Oh, you're all washed. All right. He had a good game. But like. He's he shooting thirty percent from three fifteen points a game. He I looked in the middle of season. He had. He was setting more screens than ever in his career, which to me was indicative of I'm happy to be a role player and the screens, the screens me, and when you let me Cook when you let me Cook with the ball, I have a little guy on me because there was a switch, so like I can cook like I can cook like. A chef in that situation. But like give me the take. Yeah. For me I mean, this whole story is already this own, its own mini news cycle where there's been apology. But then over apology and then criticism of the apology, and then a reconsideration of weather, all of us got the apology. Sort of wrong in the first place. So for me dating back to the beginning of this, we've even got to the blazers like it was always a question of would it wasn't could even the could I'm like, okay. There's probably this actuarial chart that says Carmelo Anthony's abilities are decreasing over time, but it's really what you mentioned is he willing to set screens like that? is He willing to come off the? The bench he had literally said, he would not come off the bench. Is he willing to take fewer shots per game than he ever has in his life? I did not think that was going to be the case that has been the case in Portland he's Zach. You'll remember hated really hated playing power forward for Mike Woodson in that one year where they basically based better than they ever had and made. Had the best season in basically recent knicks histories, regular seasons go mellow hated playing power forward. He came into. PORTLAND. Played a bunch of power forward and even now still as he gets sort of shifted back to the wing, he's playing out of the post a lot where mellow has always been excellent. So all of that stuff there has been a would question even more than a good. Good. Question to me. But now I'm looking back as I've gone on TV yesterday on highly questionable and basically invited. Carmelo Anthony to roast me because I was so sure he was done. It was delightful. But now Zach I'm like looking at the numbers as you hinted, and I'm like, wait a minute like once we accept camello. Anthony. Should be an NBA player. Let's make that concession. Is. He kind of like maybe a little better than replacement level. If we're now going to hold them to the standard of Old Lake Carmelo Anthony like I feel like. I. May have even gone too far already in the course of twelve hours in proclaiming how back he is because he's a useful. He's a role player, but he's not the Carmelo. Anthony that you remember which doesn't know. But he he belongs on an NBA court yet. Still he's still take some bad shots like mellow will never stop taking beacon played Tilles. Nineties take some bad shots defensively at three. They're gonNA meet a match up. That is problematic for him. They really haven't quite yet. But he's been fine and like that's I. Think it's a cool story I was also too low on him. I. Didn't think was going to be particularly helpful, but they needed him. They don't have other a lot of other options and it worked. We breaking news are, you ready Oh my God? Yes. I love moments like this. Well, this is not. It's unclear how how serious it is, but it is about the sixers. No I- correction I hate moments like this Ben Simmons has suffered a supplication of the Left Patella in his out indefinitely. Out Indefinitely out indefinitely could mean. Literally, anything lay anything the it can mean a day. It can mean a year, it can be two months. I, this is the kind of thing where it's like. You know there used to be like a pressure to like right analysis of all these things like Oh. What does this mean like? These are always my least favorite ones because it's like the whole column can just feel like it's bad. It's bad and the Sixers can't win a playoff series without Ben Simmons. So it's like that's the analysis. There's not really anything to say except you hope it's not bad and I'm going to send some texts when I get off to see if it's maybe not bad. But I can't, I can't be robbed of the Sixers I can't, and I won't. Rob Sixers team fulfilling destiny, which could literally be anything it could be. I. I perhaps, very responsibly and. In a very biased fashion, pick them to win the bleeping titles, Zach coming into this restart because in all of this chaos. That's open anarchy of the NBA we're all these teams are rented and who knows, what's GonNa look like what? They had a shot to do just that, right. So. My rule on injury news like this, because I don't even know what the word you said was sub black sir. Materialism right like the more syllables. The more worried I am like more unfamiliar with is the more worried I have, but this is this is cosmic. Cosmic that we do this podcast you in Muzak, we have been on top of this team and the process as long as anybody and the universe shoots lightning bolt into our eyeballs as we talk to each other. So.

"Are we willing to make changes to our own behavior as human beings that prevent the spread of this virus? One thing that I've been so frustrated by to zoom out even more a little bit. Bit, is this whole idea of being a symptomatic, right. So initially in Zach. You remember this from from our area in New York like when this first happened in February march being a symptomatic was the story, it was the nightmare and it was a nightmare because you could be seemingly fine on the outside, which would be spreading this virus everywhere. The concern, I. Think. A lot of epidemiologists have including the ones that you talk to. They're concerned that people see being a symptomatic as a win because actually you're not suffering from this thing, you're not outwardly suffering. Now. There are questions about the long-term effects to begin with, but that's actually the nightmare, the nightmares that in a non bubble environment, you take that and you spread it around, and that's the whole reason. This virus is so incredibly difficult to contain, and that's why it's a pandemic. So anything that contributes to our delusion around how easy it is to live with this thing is a problem I will admit and honestly. I'm out in the BURBS, right? Now? ZAC. It's so startling, right? The other big part of the story is if you don't feel this in your own life, if you don't feel those pain points whether it's the lack of sports or people in your life who are. Contracted this virus. It's kind of surreal. How much you can ignore it. Right? If you're just out by yourself in a house and you're not seeing anybody and you're not reminded by this in ways that affect your comfort zone. I think there is the risk of backsliding, and so I understand the urgency from anybody whose job it is to contain this. I mean, how many stories have we read all over the country of like Oh people had a party here and five days later, there was an outbreak, but over here, it's like it's it's it's the same thing over and over again, and it's just like. At some point. Yeah. I grasp at straws to when it comes to solutions. But the bottom line is the NBA has has crafted something that works for what it set out to be Yossi. Deserve. A huge amount of credit There was about forty eight hours of grumbling from people about the food they're that grumbling has ceased and you you are hard pressed to find anyone who will say anything other than the NBA has done an amazing job life here is pretty good. Yeah. They're like I'm getting a little bored I'm sick of being in Orlando at rains for fifteen minutes every day that can be annoying a, but like the claim is kind of. Of Universal and the NBA rightfully. So is not going to take a victory lap because they know they are one case away from the whole thing coming down, and that's why Lou, Williams goes out and it's ten days. That's it. That's why Alex Caruso, your go to your sister's wedding. It might be ten days might be twelve days. We would take no chances with any of this. Yeah, and when I was talking to people around the League, Zach before the bubble officially started, they were most worried about this specific time they were worried about the pre playoff games. Because right now, you have the biggest pool of players, the players who maybe not as invested. In the process as the other guys who are in this for the long haul and the thought has always been when the playoffs start, you will feel a level of intensity that is reminiscent of the postseason. Were guys will all take it seriously, but if they can get through this phase right now, this phase was the one they were most worried about, give me a, who've you what? What have? Have you been most interested in who have you been watching the most? Who Have you been sort of curious to see how they play or what what story lines have been interested in. I'm still all in on these rockets, I cannot stand I I was. So I have an apple TV and I couldn't figure out how to get the feed of the rockets bucks game. So I ended up watching Watching, when of those weird cameras that was just on James Harden the entire time, and I can't. This is where I'm like Jeff Van Gundy. I can't figure out the tech support on this. So I just watched him. It was fascinating I. mean the Guy Pads around like a soccer player. He reminds me of Leo Messi like the way you can serves as energy. He'll like walk around in basically. Basically a bathrobe and slippers conserving himself. Then these incredible bursts that remind you that he is he is historically historically special kind of a player, but the bigger picture, there's act like Russell Westbrook still is disciplined. He's bought in, he came into the bubble. The same discipline he had before this all stop. He's only taken a couple of threes a game. He's been excellent. The Super Small lineup is working. And hilariously like they're sharing tips with the nets at the pool, at the grand, Floridian in terms of how to beat the Rock, mean how to beat the bucks like that entire wh- everything that's happening with the Houston Rockets to me is so delightful well, and they haven't Eric Gordon yet for a game that matters in like that's that's the lineup. That's GonNa Close Games for them is, is there, but with Gordon although Daniel House. Dennehy House has been pretty good, and like now can do stuff off the dribble for them that he wasn't doing when he first got there like he's been pretty good. They are in three bowl games, sixteenth defense I. Mean. That's going to be the bellwether. I, do think they're the most exciting. Although I'll tell you I was going to say they're the most exciting of the three to six teams that are all bunched up together I'll tell you this the Michael Porter Jr... Is really really exciting. Because over. Denver's a really good team. And they obviously have transcendent all-time player in Yokich. And the supporting guys around him. Just. You got to the end of the season and you're like. They're just not any better than last year as a team like they're just kind of they just didn't have. There was a certain. Juice that was just missing to certain lake whether it was an athletics ISM or an unpredictability or just like Gary Harris was making shots all year until the riot. If Michael Porter Jr. can give them some juice and and now like not only is he in the rotation like Michael on has no choice on that? He might I. Mean. There's an argument that he should start now even when they're healthy. So they've become very exciting to, but I'm with the Houston. With nuggets. Questions. act. Because I love my cousins because Michael Porter, Jr. beyond.

The Secret History of the Korean Bat Flip
"Can you explain in your own words? What a best slip actually is so normally. When a baseball player has a big hit he just kinda gently lays down his right and continues on his way down the base path. But sometimes that doesn't happen sometimes. A hitter is very proud and here. She will watch the ball takeoff and sometimes they'll pause sometimes. They'll do this while they're running. But instead of gently laying down the bet they will launch it into space. There are many different ways of doing this. It can be a flick of the wrist. It can be a throw a defiant curl. Perhaps the bat can travel feet. The back can travel very far but often it sort of twirls through the air majestically like a baton and flip is it's almost like spiking a football Pablo AIDS Celera Tori gesture and as you know. This is something that is taboo. In the United States in major league. Baseball violates the unwritten rules and executing this maneuver will often result in a hitter. Getting next time he's up but in Korea. Backflips are not only accepted. There are also extremely common. That was yes. Our Own Mina cards describing a unique feature of baseball in Korea. The Korean baseball starts it season today as one of the only pro leagues on earth playing amid this pandemic and you'll be able to watch those games on ESPN. So since you might just see. K B O Player flip is bat. I asked me to be a guest on her own show to share my favorite story that she has ever written on why Korean players love to flip their bats. And how it start. I'm Pablo Torre. Tuesday may fifth this is espn daily presented by marathon. I feel insane power right now. I don't know how I feel about this. Meantime is a senior writer for ESPN and the host of this podcast ESPN daily. I am the captain. Now you will feel how I want you to feel. I think is how this works. People can't see this but Pablo was doing the thing where he points his fingers at his eyes and then he's pointing them at my eyes and it's it's very upsetting. So how did the story which I love so much? Actually come about what it was. I think the spring or early summer of two thousand sixteen which is important because we are coming off of the two thousand fifteen. Mlb playoffs whereas. I'm sure you will remember Joey. Batista flipped his Bat. Which feels almost like. I'm understanding what he did after a home run in the AL between the Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers and there were much hand wringing and commentary debate as a result of that critics called the Bat Slip Disrespectful. Not only to the opposing pitcher. Button the game in general if I were a player I wouldn't do that. The fact that a matter is what he did did not offend you. Just don't sit. There is flip your badge especially in the seventh inning but throughout this time and before that there were these videos of backflips coming from Korea. Right ed where Korean baseball players were flipping their bats do as defiantly as Batista and with great joy and style and panache. These videos had gone viral social media. Just so I started looking to a little bit. There's a it was an account on twitter. A website called my K B O. Run by a Korean American guy named Dan Kurtz and so he was sending them out and then they would go. Viral asked him how he got into it. He used to live in Korea. He was huge B O. Fan Korean baseball organization. But then I asked him okay. So why why are they so common in Korea? Why is this normal there? Why our guys not getting drilled in the head and? He didn't know and super intrigued by that. So I got in touch with another Korean baseball expert commentator for the O named Daniel Kim who is based in Korea and he had so many great stories about that flips and what not they there and how they were so common but he also didn't know why or where it started and he told me you should just come here and figure it out. So that's what I did so you actually go to Korea and this. I remember I remember it sounding like one of the great expense report boondoggles ever but you actually go to Korea with Mickey and your story begins in Bussan right and so what you're actually find when you travel across the ocean and get there so we went to Poussin which is extremely large seaside city on the southern tip of South Korea so they have a very popular team the low tae giants and the first thing we do. Is We go to a game at the stadium and it was revelatory cream. It is just crazy crowds. They're much younger than American crowds and they are cheering and dancing and going nuts. And they're they're drinking beer. I guess that's also different. They're all these events. There are cheerleaders cheer master and they're standing on a platform and it is just so much fun. There's an American Fan Mickey and I met at the first game that carry my her and he told us. Mlb is like opera and K B O is like rock and roll so were there and we're having a great time and all of a sudden this player who we. I'd seen before because I had seen of backflips name was Choi Jin Sook and public. He is enormous. That's just the only way to describe is an enormous? He would be so he comes out and his song is Elmo Maceo shots just were not I remember that
"torre" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"Let's talk about the sixers. Yes Scott I love the sixers I am obsessed with the sixers I obsessed with the sometimes hate them because I love them so much but yes I just can't stop thinking about this in like in my life the things I think about my daughter wife sixers slick. It's really that order and so this week. The sixers to the delight of some of their hardcore fans decided that Al Horford was now. They're six men and they are going to start someone in place of Al Horford in Game? One of this experiment it was for Korkmaz's who came in red hot And his turned into a very good NBA at a good NBA player. And then in half number two because for Korkmaz stunk and having it was Glen Robinson. The third who is in good and it will not be that person I am rooting for it. To Be Matisse Table Yes but it and by the way I bet at some point it will be Horford again But just some numbers for you. They're starting lineup for most of the season the one they want us to Richardson. Simmons Harris in Bead Orford one hundred five point six point one hundred possession that will bring twenty ninth in the League Twenty Nine as bad ninety seven point one points allowed that would rank first. That's good while Isolate just Simmons embiid and Horford altogether ninety nine points per one hundred possessions which is just like you think but ninety seven allowed which is like you're awesome so the foundation of something interests. I can't I just can't give up on the sixers because the foundation of such a good defenses there. They haven't been healthy together for the whole year. And I think this decision is really interesting on like nine thousand different levels. What do you think I can't give up on the sixers and I specifically can't give up and I know many people many people that I respect but I will not name check at this moment. Mamani Jones current Russillo. Excuse ME UP THEY. WanNa break this team up. Why why break up? Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons Zach Lowe. When last year they won fifty games and they were a bounce away from taking the NBA champions into overtime. Why GIVE UP ON? Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid as a plausible combination when the year before that they want fifty games top three team in the east. The idea that these guys can't fit together is a force to me because we've seen it and can they get better together. There's no question but the whole Jimmy Butler experiment. Which I mourn to this day because I hated when Jimmy didn't get the fifth year from Philly and that seems to be at the root of so many of the encore and psychological things afflicting. Joel embiid right now It just seems like we're denying a certain reality that this is not a thing we should have bought right now so I am furious with the national media in the way that the MSN talks about this. But I'm also legitimately hopeful that getting Al Horford out of the starting lineup. Wow is going to really open up some things. We saw in the one game sample against the team that we all think in the clippers can actually make an NBA finals. Why did it? Take FIFTY GAMES AC. Why did take fifty games for this to happen? Well because you paid Al Horford one hundred ten million dollars and you own right alright did for him to start and I think the sixers got a little too cute however it like Al Horford look the the idea was Alford's GonNa Start and he's going to be our backup center. Could not only one of those things is currently happening now And the sixers will defend this by saying well. He's still GonNa play twenty five twenty six minutes a game. That's what we're paying him for it. That's fine I get that. And and he closed the game alongside embiid the other night. You did so when you and I think they will play this game like when they have a lead late in game served just gonNA throw their giant defensive out there to try to close the game but like what happens in the playoffs when embiid is playing thirty eight minutes. Can you still get twenty five minutes out of Horford? Because if you can't your asset allocation has not been good I think this change. I don't think it will be a cure all but I think it is for sure worth giving a long chance to because you saw it already like embiid posts up. Simmons is the only guy near the paint. There's like sometimes there's two guys in the opposite dunker spot. There's nowhere else for him to go it. Just it looked a little bit cleaner to me. And to your point about Benadryl I disagree with you. I don't think it's a farce however like I like Ben not shooting a problem. There's just no way it's a problem. So here's here's my thing about Ben Not Shooting. It is a problem. I would like him to shoot but we have come to the point and stay in Van. Gundy made this point in the broadcast and I almost cried out of sympathetic neuron joy. He's been underrated we've under. We've got to the point where Ben Simmons is underrated. It's fine I agree. I think Ben Simmons is awesome. It's still a problem. That isn't shoot when your other best player is shack. Basically so so. I agree that this gets fixed so much easier. If ben gets a jump shot and look he teases US. We see the threes he makes pre-game eight in a row from the corner. And I think to myself. Why aren't you doing this more so I get all of that to me? Though the way to address that problem in the present tense is to get some guards to get some guys who can dribble and be the guy who allows ben to be the Roll Man. Sometimes burkes is the one guy they got could help them. So burks ransom offense. He ran some offense for the warriors. Ransom offense for the jazz. He could be that guy against the clippers. It was Josh. Richardson who back from injury. But also the dead turned out to be a guy. Twenty one points making threes stretching the floor all that stuff like just get some guards who can play alongside these guys so that the massive vulnerability to Ben has can be obscured and all of the stuff he does which is wild man and you and I hope you agree on that. Like oh he's a fantastic. Plus who way player was his defense his speed his ability to get to the Rim his vision Hugh lead the League in steals all of it man so the defensive end that I will give right now and my friend. Ben Dietrich is sort of a radical priest of the Ben. Simmons doesn't need to Shoot Church and maybe worshiping there for now sometimes but also would like to see him shoot what Ben can do. We just need to stop acting like he is like like she's worse than he is. I guess I just hate when people talk about him like he can play basket. So it's still a problem because of the NBA thing it would be undeniably less of a problem if magically instead about Horford. They had two guards who could dribble and shoot. That made that they didn't have a ton of capability to do that We are all talking about one home win as correct the sixers already. Twenty four into it. Yeah they lost twice. Not a shocker. They wanted home. Can I ask you about this though? So whether it's how this stuff plays out in the long term it I've seen like I consume everything on twitter like someone is thrown e scrap a bunch of scraps of headlines into the air. And I'm like looking at all of them and so I don't have this necessarily reported out but I'd read that home road splits aren't necessarily predictive of how that team plays in the future. So that scrap of maybe misinformation is what I cling to 'cause I don't know outside of the of psychology stuff we delve into why it is that they are so much team. I thought they would be at home and the opposite on the road. I don't know some of it has been like embiid. Miss some of those games And like T- like Joe. Well it's all about Joe L. And that's why his sort of disengaged play over the last two weeks he's been really disconcerting because whatever it is. I think Benadryl get along okay. I don't I don't think it's as bad as people have made it out to be their skill sets don't fit great but I don't think you know I don't think that really like I think it bothers them. Maybe a little bit but it's not like fatal but if it's just not working and it's just not working and it's just not working like inevitably just sort of by inertia you get frustrated. You get frustrated with your surroundings and it may be. That was happening. I don't know but they're pouty they get pouty and Joel has been pouty and it is all about like if they hit their ceiling. It's because Joel embiid will be the player in every playoff series that they play. I agree I fully agree with that. Is the best defensive player in the NBA. He is an absolute monster force. He is capable of having efficient. Ruutel Offensive Games that they're going to need for her and he's a good enough three point shooter that he's going to have games where that works. It will be whatever they have to do to get that Joel embiid. That's what they need to do. I hate parenting Barclay and shack on this topic because they are like the statler and Waldorf of I love culture. Yeah me too unless lovable curmudgeon. Beloved curmudgeon who also get to be the voting block on who is tough and who is not who is mentally strong and who is mentally weak. Who is soft and who is not soft And so I will admit when I see Joel embiid again. One game sample completely right. Bomani reminds me about this all the time when we saw against the clippers. Joel embiid play. Mantras Herrell off the floor because he was just ceiling and posting up underneath the rim and Ben would drop he would air mail that pass in and no one could stop. Joel embiid it does make me. It does make me Parrot Barclay and Jack and think to myself. Why aren't you doing this every possible time? And I know it's hard and I know it takes. It takes more than me just saying it but it does have to do with that that motor and that desire and the idea that hey sometimes man like you are pouting way too much.

"Five Stars would make me so happy. Leave a nice review. Today's episode Degrade Pablo Tori and I discussed the Houston Rockets in The Philadelphia. Seventy sixers the two weirdest teams in the NBA. But before we get to today's episode. I want to remind you to check out the Woge pod with Adrian Watson Arou- ski like you need a reminder for that this weekend Chicago it's all star and we'll chat with Clippers guard Patrick Beverley. He's generally pretty careful. Dude the hall of Famer. Jackie macmullan and the ringers. Ryen Russillo friend of the program. You can find the pod wherever you get your podcasts. And now the low has welcome to the low post. Podcasts live from a cramped studio in New York City New York where I'm thrilled thrilled to be joined by the CO host of high noon. The Great Pablo Tori. How are you? It is so cramped in here. I am Angling my body. I have one leg crossover. The other. My little water bottle is dangerously close to all sorts of equipment but it is an honor. Zack you know my now. Wife wants lived in an apartment where the bathroom was so small that I had to brush my teeth sideways. I had to turn my body sideways because my shoulders are too big to fit in the bathroom. I lived in an apartment in Chinatown when I moved out of my parent's house and we had three hundred mice and we had a bathroom. Where on the toilet? I would lean forward and my head would be on the wall while it was. It was a great resting spot and also yeah life. I'm glad I'm very far away from now I thought you would be a fun guests to have Because I wanNA talk about the two weirdest teams in the NBA and two teams that you have been in you. Cover all sports. I don't know how you do that. I don't know how you do your job and get any sleep Me Neither Yeah. I don't know I don't know anything that's going on. The Super Bowl happened and I was like I know two guys in the game. I think new to US But you are these two organizations. The strangest seems to be a hot button teams. You have traveled in both of their universes inverse ways that rockets and the sixers and of course there's one figure that unites the two. Yes yes I mean I have had mountain dew with Daryl Morey and mountain dews discussing it is like Diet. Just do his favorite drink. I just remember being in his office in do is just like what are you doing right? Have Mountain Dew all poison just main line for local with that point Diet Mountain Dew. I didn't know he drank dime out into. Yeah I remember watching clips of James Harden. What now feels like when million years ago when I used to travel and report stories as opposed to gas bag on television as forementioned. And yet daryl kicking his feet up on a table drinking diet chugging. Diet Mountain Dew. I gotta Ask reveling and James Harden. I gotta ask him about that on the Sloan. Sloan podcast do which is by the way the single best time to get there more on a podcast is four. Pm The Saturday of the Sloan conference when he is so worn out. I don't think he has any idea what he's saying. He's liable to like say anything and he knows it too. He's like he's already likes waved off so many kids with resumes and now he's just grateful to have like a face who actually doesn't want a job for him yes and he he's totally worn out anyway. the rockets and the sixers scores. Hinkie is the other is the commonality. Yes man. You're close with you. Are I had forgotten about. This is all right now. You are responsible for trust the process. I say that Dan lebatardshow repeats that Tony Romo would have objections to it because I quoted him he was sort of the first guy to sort of say it in a national media kind of setting and yeah the story. I wrote for ESPN which was now got almost a decade ago. Eight seven years ago Yeah it kind of started from there with all due respect to the rights to Ricky Sanchez. Podcast and all the sixers phantoms that I ended up becoming way too close with Kind of started with that. I want to start with the rockets though. And I'm very I'm very interested in your take because you are not in the NBA bubble. Where I live where they don't have a center. Everybody's talking about this my friend and former boss. Bill Simmons like log off twitter and anger the other night because this is so ridiculous like what do you like do you like? What have you seen the rockets without a center lately? What do you think I love it? I love it and I think the first thing to be fair to Daryl and what. They're doing this kind of born of necessity right cappella. Had the heal thing. Capello was not going to be playing. He was not going to be nearly as useful and so it does feel like a necessity. Injury is the mother of invention kind of thing. But I love that Mike. Dantonio gets to be his Mike Dantonio based and the fact that you get an offense where. Pj Tucker is the center and Russell. Westbrook has reached some state of self actualization and James Harden may be okay with it. All of that to me makes this a fascinating team to watch. Every time I turn on my television I am a noted by me. Westbrook skeptic is a little strong I just. I thought I've always overrated. I didn't vote him. Mvp The one. I think he's a great player. This is my favorite version of Russell. Westbrook ever this is the best version of Russell. This is just straight on. I am going to the King Rim and you cannot stop me and you can play ten feet off of me. I can still get by you. You can look like you have me like there's a body between me and the Rim but I'm so explosive that helped defenders gonNA creep in because they're scared of my end like someone's going to. I love this Russell Westbrook. This is so much fun. I was watching him. Take Anthony Davis ONE ON ONE IN ANTHONY. Davis rightfully was terrified. Like what do you do and that is Anthony Davis? That is the guy the former guard who became an elongated center with all the guard skills seemed lost and so Russell Westbrook the fact that he is basically the big man. He's the big man you know what he what he reminds me of when I watched them play with this new super small lineup. He reminds me of Jaanus. Yes where they just. Everyone plays off of him. People put centers on him like they do with the honest and just invite him to come at them and he's like. Oh then I will come at you and the thing that infuriated me about Ross. In the way that I'm sure infuriated. You was that Russell. Westbrook was under some delusion that he was good at shooting shooting. Threes in specific. And so the big and not like the worst. Ever right and not famously. Terrible not the guy who was raising questions about whether lakes injured what is wrong with him. Why can't you shoot free? Throws why can't issue threes and now finally in this run of small ball. He's down to taking one or two a game and to rewire Russell Westbrook to re incentivize Russell. Westbrook the most defiant human being maybe to have played basketball the fact that took this experiment to do it it. He is uniting people who also had many doubts about him because good Lord. I didn't think he can do this. The other thing is in what I would say to bill and I I said to build in texts like they're not. It's not that different from how they were already playing. They're just a little smaller. That's all like this is already how they were playing so they went. This is the natural evolution team so they went from hardin running pick and roll a million times a game. Too hard and discovering. Why don't you to do that? Because I can just launch a step back three and like calling up screener just makes there's just more stuff going on you. Just forget that so klink. Appel you go down in the dunker spot under the rim. And I'll drive in throw you lobs. That's cool way to say what if that guy wasn't even in the dunker spot. What if nobody was there? What if the pain was totally empty and I just like could get layups or kick out? It's the natural evolution of their team. It doesn't look all that different To me and the numbers so far back it the NBA semi these numbers today with PJ. Tucker it's Center for the season hundred and fifteen points one hundred possessions. One hundred allowed so plus fifteen which is massive. Yeah I think this is actually specifically with harden and Westbrook both on the floor Seventy five percent defensive rebounding league average which is like if you can survive. That's that's a huge. I'm not sure they can in the long run. But that's fine super fast pace tons of turnovers forced like this is. That's the math for them. Yeah and what they do against big men like defensively as interesting right junk it up. They double team. They throw hands guys like PJ Tucker by the way Daryl's on this for a long time. Remember Chuck as Chuck as had been the Chuck Wagon Shortest Center in NBA history shortest starting center in NBA history. Because y'all got hurt incomes chuck as chuck. His had like a six ten wingspan. Pj Tucker has a seven foot wingspan. And so I had an argument with Jalen rose out here in our office. Gesturing out now to the bullpen area where he was not a person who believed that wingspan was a decent substitute for height. I tend to be a guy who believes in that market inefficiency and so even if. Pj Tucker is now beating chuck as his record as shortest starting center. Because I believe with the socks off fugit got remeasured at like six five if he's putting his arms up and they're seven feet of them that tells me that maybe this isn't actually as big efficiency as some may have seen just based on that like wikipedia. A number of about height. Do you remember. Did you watch wrestling as a kid? I did not watch nearly as much as my friends in everybody in this business like loved it and so please continue but not an expert in every once in a while there would be a big guy like King Kong. Bundy was a big guy. Like a big. Maybe a little bit fat guy and you re like I would announcements like four hundred pounds and he would face like a little guy and the little guy would go to the other end of the ring like rev up his engines and as fast as he can. Just run right into King Kong bundy standing still and just bounce backwards. I think that would happen to me if I did that too. Pj Tucker and he's not fat. He's just like I don't. I've never seen anybody move. Tucker. You can't prove to me that anyone has ever dislodged. Pj Tucker knows. Steve Kerr said this last. May I think when they played them in the playoffs? And I just heard Brad Stevens say this again. When they beat the Celtics who obviously small ballers themselves. You called the rockets linebackers. There is a girth a thickness to the rockets. That I think is missed when you just talk about height because PJ Tuckerman on top of having like the finest shoe collection of any athlete going. He is a football player. He does look like a football and by the way. I should say that Ricky Shat out to him. He was that the sumo guy things I mean in in. You know just like straight up rubbing forcibly motor-boating people with your cheeks like a thing that should be recorded summary. Someone must've said no some star must've been like you know what you're not doing that to me. I look at the animated gifts on twitter. I'm like this feels like it should be banned like this feels to NSF. W for the platform around. But yeah shout out to Asian Hero Ricky Sheet. We all had our fair share of sad breakfasts..
Gerald Stern reads Torn Coat
"This week. We spoke Oke with Gerald Stern in New York City. Stern says he's been writing poetry for thousand years. When people see how old I am? They say are visual writing. Are you kidding technically. It's been eighty three years. He started writing at the age of twelve. The poem torn in coach. which you are about to hear borrows the phrase from Joyce who borrowed the phrase from one of these ups fables? The aunt worked all summer summer saving food. For the winter. The grasshopper lean disalvo spit. Tobacco had a good time came to winter in the aunt had plenty to eat and the grass out for head. Nothing the grasshopper begs is the anti give him food. And the ant says no Joyce's concept in Finnegans wake was a great hct. Hernan will expecting expecting grace to befall him from the grace of God or whoever gives grace so joyce renamed the animal a grace hopper oper. Here's Gerald Stern reading. The poem torn coat recorded his to have forgotten the torn coat of Vicky Zamora Korea from Puccini's La. boheme enter. Remember the other coats for Mao Torre on down and look what it is to give your own code away three times now and to walk shivering in three different countries countries of tears. The opportunity in tears for a horse all bone on hillside without a blanket in him laughing at me because there were no tears left for freezing grace hct. I don't know how to explain this but sometimes reading poems that come in a word just leaps out at you and Dan you never for you now. You never forget the word but you never forget where you I sort of thought about it and and I think most people not to give things away or says them terribly of the but when you get to the end of the home in you see grace hopper as a word you think it's Typo in thank. Thank my colleagues here kept querying. Let's racer but when I saw it I just the Joyce didn't come to mind. I'll be honest but I knew I knew. A grace hopper is a perfect thing to have come into existence if it isn't already there and so you know the poem had me with the very last word I mean what comes before is lovely and I'm very fond of this palm but I think it had be at grace oper. Yes in. It's a great gift. That a poem can give you a a word or a phrase that just sort of lodges itself and there's you know I'll be looking around wherever I go now for Grace Sir grace home and I and I think one or two. Yes yeah it does it. It really startles you sort of at that ending. Yeah it makes you just make your way all the way up the palm again and just looking to how we got there. It's a one-sentence in this poem. It's it's really moving and turning towards that culmination and man. There's so many coats in the wrong and I ages started thinking about all the coats that we know. I mean not only the ones that are listed here like the Puccini coat but Josephine is many colored coat. And even you know Yates's code and I made my song. Coat covered with embroideries out evolve mythologies it's like that's part of what's going on in this poem as well but it also seems to me it's taking some of of these coats out of their mythological mantles an into this moment of generosity. Right look what it is is to give your own code away three times now and to walk shivering in three different countries. And I think it's just so hard to talk about an act of kindness like that without it being a sort of shall we say virtue signaling or something like that and one of the one of the ways that this poem really distances itself from. That seems to me as using the you rather than the I if we assume that maybe the I actually did these things. And and also that repetition of look what it is you know look what it is to have forgotten the torn code in the Puccini Opera. And look what it is to give your our own code away. And there's a kind of parallelism about that in which forgetting in giving away seem to be laterally positioned there there and I really appreciated that about this poem. Because it's it's about so much I mean it's about the presence and sort of symbolic mobility of some of these coats in poetry and in the Old Testament and in you know sort of their all of these again all of these codes but then also there. Are these acts of kindness. That can happen as we're told three times now and speaker of the poem doesn't really fully say that he in this case gave his coat away but just look what it is to give your own code away so it becomes. The coat becomes transformed into something that can actually help to warm a real living person Jason or a horse who was all bones on hillside without a blanket. I love the way this poem made all of that happen. It's a short poem home. And the texture of it is very complex complexly woven the title of course is torn coat and yet when you get through that part about that tears. Here's for the opportunity tears for horse. It's sort of tears. Tears happening somehow there and when you think of torn born coat you're liable to think of a coat that's been in use for a long time or as experienced like its owner Sir hardships. You know it's torn and there's sort of an interesting interesting kind of thing that happens when you realize that you've been describing. The poem is about. It's about many things but if you give your own code oh two way then you go back to is like was it torn off. You know you you gave it away. What kind of coat was it? Well it could be any kind of co because there are so many precedents. Yes yes as a as a kind of covering is very eerie. Because you have to think about so many in different kinds of things simultaneously. You have to think about all these coats you have to think about. You know most people are capable of generosity. One if you give a code away you might do that once Twice three times. That's a Lotta coat giving away that's right and it's it's like at the same time the landscape in which this occurs sort of move salon from like the kind of culture urban world of the the opera to mount hor on down all the way down. And then you're left with this horse all bone on a hillside in you have to think about the freezing Graham because ultimately if you encounter a freezing grace hopper can you give it a coat. What is the right coat for freezing grace hopper so there are many gifts given their eater in this palm but most of them are kind of questions that have no oh answers you sort of have to peel off meaning for yourself the way? The poem describes peeling off

Patriots To Adjust Tom Brady's Contract; Add $5M In Incentives
"Years and speaking of Jimmy Garoppolo who is now the second highest paid quarterback in football behind Kirk, cousins Tom Brady's got a new. Contract some additions on. There it's a five million dollars in incentives to go on with that fourteen million dollar based. Salary why the hell do you have to give Tom Brady incentives as this is stuff that drives me nuts about football. Visible that's. Awesome with the, cap you can Manipulated by doing by, putting. An incentives like this is ridiculous I'm, sorry I mean you've, got to figure out a way to not do this this, guy has been here almost twenty years I think. You kind of know what he's done and what he's going to continue to, do what I know but died yesterday floated the story that in practice it was shaking his arm that maybe he's not quite right hasn't looked great in training camp and maybe. By not, appearing at the voluntary OTA's it's catching up to him and practice has been kind of disjointed right two days off a day on Brady gets his birthday off so they're not up. To the, speed that they normally are but. This guy you have to give him. Incentives you're looking at like it's a slap in the face to Brady were really it's a way to manipulate the cap is not a slap, in the face of this is. A way to manipulate. The castle is so is the incentives you don't have to I I this is why I. Also think that you should almost take the quarterback salaries out of the salary cap because they're going to make so much. Money and. You have to, pay quarterbacks Get the best quarterback the Brady white sign it because I'm sure it's fine I'm just looking at it to someone that admires the guy when I. See incentives, for player like that I'm like that's what's wrong with football okay but it's a way to manipulate that's all it is yes I've heard that a couple times already you're trying to Federal case again into making a federal case because here's a guy again I remember, remember when Joe. Torre left the New York Yankees they said okay we're going to we're going to give you. A contract but we're. Going to, have some incentives in there you'll make a half a million dollars. If you win the American League east you'll, make. Another half a million if you. Win the American League and he's. Pretty, much said, damn, all, set, I've, earned, my right that. I don't need to have incentives incentives for people that aren't motivated this guy is, motivated God forbid the, patriots do something that's smart for the rest of the. Team they after just all bowed out Tom Brady whatever Tom Brady them for seventeen years Basim bow down. To them, recently well it's no no. No. No no no that's not true. You know this job. Because, of their west Welker contract and he's. Taken pay cuts Yeah so they should do, its best to the teams Except for Tom Brady and not give him things that help the cap and just give him the guaranteed money and then tied. To the cat because they realize what they should. Do they. Didn't keep his one of his favorite receivers Danny amendola he's. Bringing in, wide receivers that looked like they were. Retired I mean Eric decker looked like, he? Was retired he was hanging out with his wife right and now he's coming back and they're going to try. To see if he can make something out of himself teams that screw, themselves over are the teams that do whatever the hell the players all the, time and give them all the money that. They. Want and that don't care about is not true The Vikings done that and giving Kirk. Cousins biking's aren't aren't gonna win a championship
